“To my place of course”
“To your place?” I asked
“Yeah” she replied,
I turned around and saw Paul having a
conversation with Lydia, he did almost all the
talking, her arms were folded, as she listened
to whatever he was saying.
Rose was kinda the only one not getting
attention, she was leaning on the wall, with
her back and looking at us.
“Alright, let’s go” I said
I followed her, we took a taxi, to her place,
while we were in the taxi, she tore her
envelope, to check the money.
It was six pieces of N500 notes, meaning it
We arrived her home, too big to be owned by
I had barely walked in, when I noticed her dad
sitting on the Couch, reading a Newspaper
with his glasses hanging on his Nose.
“Good evening Dad!” She Greeted him with a
“My Dear, how was your first day at work?”
“It was really Great Dad”
Her hands were still held tightly onto mine
“Meet my colleague Dad”
“Good evening sir” I greeted
“Hello son, what’s your name?” he asked.
“Jeffrey!” I replied.
“he smiled a little, Jeffrey! that was my late
brother’s name” he said
“sorry for your loss” i said
Gladys glanced at me.
Gladys’s mum came out of the Kitchen,
Gladys introduced me to her too.
Minutes later we were all having dinner.
“Are you a student, Jeffrey?”
Gladys’s mum asked me.
“Yes, am studying Biochemistry”
“That’s a nice course”
“Thank you” I said.
There was something unique about Gladys’s
Family; There was so much Love and mutual
We were done eating, I thanked them and bid
them farewell, Gladys accompanied me to the
roadside, it was already a little dark.
“You have a very nice home” I said.
Was I suppose to k!ss her? I deliberated, while
I turned to the side, to face her, we gazed at
each other, then I reached for her lips and
I was taller than her, so her faced was raised
up, as we kissed for about a minute.
She blushed, once we were done.
She must have really been expecting it.
I arrived home, very tired, I was yet to check
my envelope, I dropped it on the bed along
with my phone, grabbed my towel and walked
into the bathroom.
After the bath, I felt so refreshed.
I changed my clothes and sat on the bed to
check the envelope.
I counted the money, mine was 6k.
I got two missed calls from Mr Johnson.
So I called him back.
“Yes, Jeffrey, I had been trying to reach you
“You see, not all of you have equal pay, so I
want you to do me a favour, by not disclosing
your wage to your colleagues, it might arouse
a level of frustration in them”
“Alright” I replied
I Later hung up.
I had something I needed to do before
sleeping, I had to read, I sat on my reading, I
did the weekend assignment, assigned to us,
before going through all we did through the
On the Tuesday, of the same week, at about
4pm, I went to buy some things from a shop,
Three guys, approached me. I recognised one
of them, it was the guy I once had a fight
with, over Amarachi, in the previous semester.
“Bros, he said, amidst laughter”
“One of them was flapping his shirt to reveal
“So you think you can just mess with my babe
and go free?” he said.
I stood there, not replying.
He winked at his friends, meaning they should
give me a beating.
They rushed to where I was, and were about to
start throwing punches.
“Wait” I screamed.
“Don’t you guys have dignity, you mean, it will
take the three of you to beat me up?”
One of them made an “O” with his mouth and
covered his mouth with his palm, to express
“Una hear am? him say we no get dignity” he
said in pidgin English.
The guy I once beat, was very furious.
“Dragon, let’s erase this guy” he said, facing
The oldest of them was quiet.
“He’s right, just one of us is enough to give
him a beating” he said
Then whispered something to him.
The guy who was even the less masculine of
them, came first.
He stood for some seconds before me, then
turned around like he was going to leave,
In a swift, he turned around again but this
time with a fierce blow, aimed for my face.
I was at alert, I blocked the blow with my left
hand, and sent a punch to his face.
My hand hurt a little, he began laughing.
Then glanced at his friends, who were
watching with arms folded.
He brought another blow, I bent and aimed for
his belly, he bent forward to agonise in pain, I
lifted his head up with both my hands, and
headbutt him on the nose.
Blood began gushing out of his nose.
I stood aside, after some minutes, he
recovered a little after some time, he brought
out his knife.
The oldest of them yelled at him to stop, he
He wanted revenge, and since his strength and
fighting skills couldn’t get him that, he opted
to use his weapon.
He was aiming for my neck, he really wanted
I dodged by bending and moving away.
At a point, he got me, tearing flesh in the
process, just beneath my left arm.
He laughed in Joy, when he noticed the blood
I heard someone screaming from afar and
running toward us.
It was Ibro, he was running at high pace
toward us with a Sharp Cutlass, pointing to
