She went to change in the Ladies bathroom, i changed back into what i wore when we came where i was waiting for her, She got back, arranged what she bought for us into her Big hand bag, she was so quiet, she wasnt saying anything, and i was quiet too, i just felt she was angry, and would start avoiding me, it wasnt part of the plan for her to find out who i was like this,
“$h!ts happen, when they do, flush it” so i thought,
Lots where going through my head, ( she might see me like some sort of a dangerous guy now, i tried to make sure she didnt watch what she watched, but to no avail, she was too stubborn to leave, if she sees me as a bad guy , am cool, at least what i did was good, call me a Bad-Good Boy, i knew i had the good side of me, ‘every good girl would like a bad good boy, someone they were sure confident of’ i flattered myself.
The reception between us was still quiet as we walked to get a Bike. She told the Bikeman to take us to Campus 3. We finally got to a Beautiful hostel with a black gate, i could see the Predigree call from where we stood, it was a walkable distance from there. As we got down, i jumped on the bike quickly,
“i want to rush home, clean myself up and meet up with my friends” i said,
”ok call me when you get home, and please do something about your head before you go there” she replied,
”alright i will” i replied,
The bike zoomed off while she stood outside and watched me leave, and as we left i turned my neck back looking at her, then did the phone sign with my hand on my ear i was like ‘i ll call you.
As the bike was on its way to my place, i had flashbacks and voices in my head,
”guy forget that babe like you, shes not been in a situation like this before, she was quiet because she just didnt know what to say, i recaped how i went searching for like a lost treasure in ‘Ultimate Search’, how i was beaten, the fight, and smiled severally about it, my mind told me she must have been blown away, but i shouldnt come so fast with a conclusion yet.
I got to my gate, payed the bikeman, peeped through the holes of the gate, trying to see if any of my neighbours where outside, cos i wasnt ready to be bombarded like bokoharam with diffent questions, i wasnt carry any bomb proof to withstand the questions cos after all the hailing this morning, i come return with face mixed with different colours, i go explain tire, but the ones wey go talk rubbish go still talk even if no be your front.
I snicked in like a thief, quietly walked to my apartment, Susans Burglary proof was open, it meant she was home, i opened my door, went in, undressed, went to the bathroom, had my bath, while i was bathing my phone was ringing, i couldnt just rush out and get it, i wasnt just in the mood for that, by the time i was through, i checked my phone and had already gotten four missed calls from Chuks, Solo, Cynthia and Salma, i called Cynthia back and as soon as she picked the first thing she said was,
” i told you to call me when you get home”,
”i wanted to freshen up before calling you” i replied, i just had my bath, i want to get dressed now, i dont know if you mind me calling you at night?” i asked politely,
”I was going to call you tonight too, i really need to speak with you, i dont mind” she replied,
”aright talk to you later” i said,
“call me when you get back” she replied,
”ok i will, i said and hung up.
While i was busy with her on the phone, Chuks’s call was on call-waiting, i picked it and he gave me direction on how to get to where they were that they were waiting for me. I hurriedly dressed up, looked at my face in the mirror, one side red while the other was my normal colour, it was obvious i had bruises, the scars of the Axe been slapped on my chick were evident, i waved it off.
I locked my door and was on my way out when my phone began to ring, it was Solo,
”Rugged geh! geh!!, were you dey?” he asked,
”on my way oo” i replied,
”you know the place?” he asked,
”Capo don describe am for me” i answered,
”no lemme call you again oo, if not you don price me be dat, and you go pay” he yelled,
”Baba i dey show soon” i replied.
I took a bike, stopped by at my favourite Chemist store, got my head treated, i begged her to carve the plaster into the size of the cut, it wouldnt be good it was so evident, if not i wouldnt be able to withstand questions. After she did i looked at myself at her sliding door like a mirror, (its not all that bad i said to myself then gave myself a buoyant face). I payed and left.
I took another bike and headed for Campus 4, told the bikeman just the way Chuks told me, we finally got there, it was a nice looking bar, i payed the bike and went in, and as they saw me, Chuks stood up with the rest of the guys, they kept shouting,
Make dem clear road!,
They kept ranting, i was very flattered, Flames ran to get me a chair, cleaned it with his hanky(in a jonzing way), then i sat down
I sat down feeling very flattered, i just couldnt say anything cos they kept ranting, Chuks left were he sat, came to where i was, anchored me(brotherhood shaking) hailing as he did,
”make una bring Beer and pepper soup for my manche” he shouted,
I swear i was feeling so honoured, before i knew it everyone started leaving their seats, one after the other, just to have the Brotherhood pleasantries with me, when they kept doing that, it got my Shy, as the weird guys people just sat where they were, watched and laughed, what Chuks and the rest did, drew attention of the others who came to drink at the Bar, they wouldnt understand, with the respect they gave me, a stranger there would think i was the Capon.
”Oya clear road for our future Capon in the making” Perry thundered,
Just like how it was during the fight, everyone started dropping lines one after the other hailing me, all i did was smile, i was quiet, very very Shy.
As a Young Fine Girl was bringing a bottle of beer and a plate of Pepper Soup that seems to be mine, Mountain D stood up, ran to her, collected the tray from her,
”wey you, gimme make i serve am by myself, you know who em be?, na my guy” he said,
He took it from her, brought and placed it in front of me, i was just busy laughing, i understand why everyone was giving me the warm reception. I opened the drink, took the label off, turned it backwards and sticked it back to the drink (if you no belong, no try am for public oo, cos your beating no go get mate), i took the drink with my left hand poured it into a glass, still drank it from the glass with my left hand,
”Ruggeeeeeeed You” Solo thundered,
The weird guy wasnt with us, he should probably be somewhere, treating himself, i noticed his Capon had been watching me, i didnt care what he had in mind, everyone was drinking and eating peacefully together like a family, it was just to make Peace reign, as funny as it was, we could drink like that that day, and end up being at war the next day, anything at all could happen, what everyone had was in their mind, the boyant face was just a mere disguise.
”guy which level you dey” he asked from where he sat(the weird guy’s Capon), he was sitting next to Chuks,
”baba 200level” i answered,
”Before you show dem dey reason your matter, how you take dey tidy things, your mind, your stubborness, i dey impressed” he said,
” Nah my Boy, nah my bring am up” Chuks said,
”Baba thank you sir, i dove for you(bowing my head down in respect)” i said,
”I dey like guys wey dey get mind, and wey no dey look for trouble, but if you pinch them, you go bleed for the pinch, my boys dem say upon wetin dem do you, say you no still gree go down, to the extent even when your men dem show, you no take advantage of am, you still use your mouth say you wan fight timber one on one, if nah me, i no get dat time, groundnut go don enter person leg tey tey, i reason am, guy i respect you for that, that makes you a man” he narrated, as everyone kept quiet listening to him talk
He stood up with a glass of drink in one hand, stretched out the other towards me for a shake, i stood up immediately, bent my head down, and reached for his hand, giving him a very firm shake, everyone began to clap, shouting, ranting in slangs, some were banging the table,
”abeg as we don come together jollificate, make the matter die like that, my Boy Bleep up, una own boy use em hand take care of am” he added,
”Nah my Boy nah, nah me rugged am, nah we make am” Chuks kept shouting,
I was honoured, we stayed together drinking and gisting till about 8pm, i had taken three bottles of beer and two plates of pepper, i needed to start going home.
Just as i was pondering about going home, my phone began to ring, i took it out from my pocket, it was Cynthia again (this babe no dey call me like this before oo, wetin dey xup, i said to myself), picked it up,
”Hey!, whats up” i asked,
”dont tell me you are not home yet” she asked aggresively,
”not yet, i cant be home and not call you now, am i mad?” i asked, she laughed,
”watch the time, you know there’s curfew in this town, i want you home safe for me, i have already had enough heart attack today” she said,
”ok mummy, am on my way home like right now, i ll call you as soon as i get down from the Bike” i said,
”ok, please leave right now, am waiting for your call to tell me you are home” she said,
”i will, trust me” i replied,
”take care” she said and hung up.
After the call, i started reasoning, Cynthia wasnt calling me like this before, i remembered the phrase ‘i want you home safe for me”, this is getting interesting, after our midnight call, i ll really know whats up.
We all left there same time, i was lucky to get a bike so quick and headed home.
