His friend asks to know if he has done anything wrong but he said he has not done anything wrong, but that has been in his mind since childhood when he saw how a man involved his wife in his activities and he thinks the time is ripe for him to effect what has


been in his mind for long. After many deliberations, the man agreed with him, saying that it means that he will separate the business from him because doing that for his wife, his own wife too may say to him he needs a share in the business and when women are involved in


businesses, they would not understand some things which may degenerate into another thing among them. he would not want that to happen therefore, he told him that the best thing is that they be separated. They started working on how to effect the separation of the business


assets. This was done successfully, and the man moves his business away from his friend’s. after he moves his business away from his, they started living a separated life though living in the same compound. The man and his wife raise little money and bought a new land,


very far away from his friend’s, there they build a new house and moved there. Three months after this he sold his old house and the money raised from there he used in establishing his wife. It has been about ten years since they separated their businesses and


about nine years since they moved to the new apartment, yet the woman is yet to take in. Then the man started having another notion about what the people have told him, what they have told him may not be true after all, but there is nothing he could do again. After his


separation from his friend, his friend was awarded a contract by the island management and his business skyrocketed through this, he started receiving different contracts and he becomes very rich. After his friend sells his own house which they jointly built, his friend


also sold his and moved to another place entirely to be living there. This man now has connections with the creme-de-la-crème of the island. The man who has separated his business, though not poor but he was not as blessed as the man. It takes the man additional


ten years after this incident before his wife could take in, which makes twenty years after the separation. It was during the naming ceremony that of the child that the man called his friend apologizing to him that he was pushed to separate his business from him by people


who have polluted his wife’s mind. His friend replied that he thanked God that they separated their businesses, though it was very painful for him then, because he has been dreaming of building a very big business together with him, having labored, toiled during day


and night together since their childhood days, but when he won a contract he never dreamt of winning after their separation, he cannot but appreciate God that they have separated their business, this was because assuming this does not happen, he may not have

the mind of bidding for the contract because he will be complacent thinking they have reached their Eldorado, and thereby, he will not win the contract because one cannot win what one has not applied for when one is not a spirit. “If that had not happened, I would not


have been shot to the limelight”, he said to him, it is really a blessing in disguise to him. On another note, assuming we are yet together, and we won the contract together, those people would still be insinuating that I am the architect behind your travails but since we


have been separated they cannot attach my progress or stagnation to yours neither yours to mine he says. And from then he has been seeing things from another angle, which brings about unexpected changes for him. He again thank God that none of them is dead at the


moment for assuming he has died before now, people would have said, his enemies have been taken off the land of the living to pave way for what God has in plan for him, but since he is yet alive, and his business is thriving with nothing happening to his family people who


are sensible can judge and judge the matter rightly and clearly he said. He then adds that, what happened between them has shown that God has time for everything in life, no matter how humans try, irrespective of how humans push God, he will not be pushed because he


knows the right time that his blessings will fit us. I rejoice with you for after it all God answers your prayers by giving you a son for assuming you did not give birth to a son despite the separation you will never forgive yourself for yielding to the counsels of the people. I also


want to thank you because doing what you did indeed pushed me to establish a business for my wife. He then gave the man the key to a car and some amount of money to boost his business.
