Background Akpos, as a houseboy, usually sneaks into his Oga’s room and helps himself with whatever he can find. One day his Oga bought Pastis, a wine which changes colour whenever water is added to it. Akpos was unaware of this, and when he sneaked into the room again he drank some of the wine and added water to fill up the bottle. Immediately, the wine changed colour and Akpos knew he was in deep trouble. Not knowing what to do, Akpos ran into the kitchen. Meanwhile his Oga and Madam were seated in the parlour.
