The alcohol in my system vanished like a
fast volatile substance living nothing but a
strangely sobber and bemused man.
I fixed my gaze on Chioma’s figure as she
ran through the thick twilight grey that
covered the atmosphere now heading
towards my gate.
My head was totally damp and to think was
impossible, My legs felt like it was nailed to
the spot making it impossible to shift.
I wanted to run after her but somehow i
couldn’t, my wits and reflexes were as if
they were shut down temporarily.
Someone zoomed pass me, the high heel
shoes she was wearing giving the ground a
musical pounding as she ran after
Chioma’s resigning figure.
Licia’s yelling voice kept resounding into
my mind, as she kept calling after chioma
who didn’t even turn back.
I managed to drag my frame the much i
can towards the gate, my woozy head
threatening to rip open, wobbling legs on
the verge of giving in under me.
Chioma sped on without looking back,
every step she takes left a matching thump
effect on me.
Escaped from licia’s mouth buttered into a
bag full of hissing sounds as she kept
chasing chioma down gaining more ground.
Okon my newly hired gate man, a small
stout very black man, with a funny facial
look and an off coloured goatee stood
beside the gate. I had hired him from the
recommendation of Effiong, papa’s gate
man and i clearly see the similarities
Their smallish body hogging a whole lot of
humour in one small package.
“Maram rem deh call you” he said as
Chioma got to the gate.
“Open this gate” She yelled pulling him by
his shirt collar, yanking his smallish frame
like Big show would yank at a smallish
figure like Ray mysterio in a WWE wrestling
“Maram, mbok uka rem deh kol u” His thick
calabar assent showing him off to be a
fresh fish out of the river.
“Chioma please listen to me” Licia intoned
on getting to the spot, holding Chioma by
I don’t why it didn’t come as a surprise, A
slapping sound thundered through the air.
“Get your hands off of me!!!” Chioma yelled
sending Licia backwards with a thunderous
Licia clutched her cheek in her hands
gazing at Chioma with a widened eyes.
“What is wrong with you?” I yelled at
Chioma, my body was quaking, nerves were
restless and my eyes threatened to shut
and blank out any moment.
“Are you out of your mind!!!” my voiced
wreaked sending okon on a task of
hugging the wall tightly even when i was
not referring to him.
“Sky, you are asking me what is wrong with
me, what sort of a man are you!!!”
I have never heard Chioma talk in this pitch
before and the free flowing streams of tears
running down her face made her all the
“You come back here clutching another
woman God knows were you picked her up
from, probably a prostitute and you are
asking what’s wrong with me?”
I noticed Licia’s face twitched and her eyes
went dim while Chioma’s voice rented the
air in an uncontrollable tempo.
“I should have known you were still the
same, this was exactly the same thing you
did with Cynthia. You are a cheat sky, a big
cheat and a he- goat”
My mind was taken aback to the Cynthia’s
saga 5years ago.
Cynthia as i am told got pregnant a year
after i was sent to U.k.
She was denied by the young engineering
student that got her pregnant.
She now stays in the united states as a
“Chioma would you at least listen to me?”
My voice was strangely calm and hands
making to get hold of her.
“Leave me alone you cheat, don’t touch
me” She blurted out pushing me as hard as
she could muster.
“You are the worst mist…………”
“Hey hey hold it there” Licia’s voice barged
in without announcement cutting Chioma’s
long rebuking sermon half way.
Chioma’s eyes widened a bit and her
mouth fell open as she fixed a surprised
gaze at licia whose dimmed eyes now
sparkled in an untold fury.
“You don’t even know what you have until
you loose it, you can’t even give your man
a chance to explain himself” Her hands
were waving at Chioma as she spilled an
“Yes i am a prostitute and i don’t deny
that” I could see Chioma’s intense look as
the word ‘prostitute’ registered into her
mind coming out from Licia’s mouth.
“He could not even bring himself to cheat
on you even when he is drunk, what you
have here is a broken man. Broken by your
inability to show restraint when it is needed,
broken by the fact that you made his
already troubled life even more troubled
than it should have been”
“You were supposed to be there for him, to
know your man but you compounded his
Chioma’s face now wore a relatively calm
and quiet look and licia’s face got all the
more twisted and mean.
She took a couple of steps towards
Chioma, looking into her face.
“If anything happens to him, Just know that
you caused it”. The seriousness in her
voice was unmatched, the contempt out of
Everything was spinning faster before me,
my wits have dissolved in an instant and
my legs could give in any moment.
Chioma was transfixed in her position,
interchangeably looking at me and Licia, a
strange calmness was at work but yet
traces of anger could still be noticed.
The voices were banging hard into my
Amanda’s chuckle and giggling taunts
“Young man, i am highly disappointed in
you” In Chioma’s father’s voice.
“Sky this is haimdal’s pills” Jessy’s voice
was next to echo in my head.
“I only came here to give you these” this
was Chioma’s voice accompanied by a
resounding jingling sound of a ring and key
crashing down into the ground.
“I have been waiting for you, and i have a
surprise for you” Amanda’s clear tone
voiced in smeared with a cracking bout of
Ryan’s innocent and hearty laugh,
” the child’s deoxyribonucleic acid strand is
matches yours more” the doctor’s voice
crept in inducing a piercing sharp pain in
My head was numb and i could feel sweat
rushing down my face in quick
successions, the flashes were constant and
“Uka!!!” Okon’s voice yelled.
Complimented by a shrieking yell of my
name from Chioma and licia.
Nothing else happened, everything was
suddenly blank and dark.
