Despite his father initially refusing to see him, Charles persisted and eventually met with him. The meeting was marked by a silent yet intense exchange of emotions, with both Charles and his father shedding tears.
Charles informed his father about his academic achievements and the tradition of a father’s prayer for a working son. However, his father, burdened by guilt for not contributing financially to Charles’ education, initially refused to pray. It was only after the intervention of his father’s friends that a prayer was offered, though Charles’s father still grappled with his conscience.
Charles reveals the strained relationship with his father, stemming from his stepmother’s ultimatum to choose between her and Charles. His father chose his stepmother, leading to Charles living on the streets since then. Despite the challenges and distance, Charles expresses love for his father, highlighting the complex dynamics and emotional struggles within their relationship.
