She slept and wakes up and decided to go check on her clothes, when she pull out the first one it was okay on her body but the second one she inspected was something else, which she decided to go and sew it, Amarachi now went or Obinna's shop since he is the only Tailor located at the neighborhood and that also good in sewing ladies clothes too, Obinna is just a tailor that sew mens attires he is also good in making women's dresses.

When Obinna saw Amarachi walking like an Angel to his shop, he was smiling silencely, without anyone noticing it, here she comes, Amarachi arrive in the shop and Obinna's apprentice gave her a seat and she sat, Obinna asked her "how can we help you madam?
