I looked at the big goat on boxer and shook my head, my eyes colored red. Ten naira wey I suppose add complete the transport wey I go take go shop, because I have one hundred pieces in my trouser’s pocket. Removing that ten naira will make it ninety naira, I sighed tiredly and dressed up.

Ugochukwu: you no serious, start to dey trek you go reach before you even realize say you dey trek.
He went out of the room while I wore my pans and came out of the hallway, I turned to the frontage and saw him moving his car away.
I took a bike to the main road and I took a car to my shop, I got there and met the new security girl, is Olamide okay?
He is hiring a girl as a security, em think say na brothel em dey secure or mini-supermarket.
Security girl: good afternoon, sir. welcome to Many Choice supermarket.

Me: Olamide run model charade? no wonder, where is that big head Olamide?
Security girl: you mean the manager? we don’t use such words here, sir.
I hissed and entered the supermarket and met another new salesgirl, that stupid girl quit without informing me. I met Olamide behind the counter pointing to the girl how to inform customers of their choice.
Olamide: oga, good morning.
Me: call yourself and your two girlfriends to my office.
I headed to my office while the three of them joined me later, the security girl is so innocent and charming, especially her pretty rounded face and her honey eyes. she is fair and barely twenty one, I glanced at her CV as they all stood before me. She has just finished her ND programme, but no money to further her HND, because of say I don dey pay thirty thousand naira… everybody wan work for here. issorite.
The other one that just wrote her WAEC, very dark and seems like she is Olamide girlfriend. The way she is just staring at Olamide with love and fear in her eyes, na my business ona wan turn Romeo and Juliet. I broke the silence with a pleasant cough.
Me: manager, Ola!
Olamide: yes, sir.
Security girl: kneel down immediately sir, please no sack me. my sick mother depend on me, na only this job I dey use help her and my brother.
Me: I nofit hold the laugh nobody is sacking anybody here, Ola bring the sales record book.
He rushed and brought it with the money, I did a thorough accounting before them and noticed ninety thousand naira has been missing.
Me: wetin you use ninety thousand naira do, Ola?
Olamide: for salary, no vex… sir, I no go try am again.
Me: before? I no go use police arrest you, na myself and I go use you do ritual.
After I settled the accounting that day, I asked them to go to their various post. My supermarket was growing rapidly all thanks to Aisha and her contacts, I called my suppliers to bring more stocks. I took lots of money from the safe in the supermarket and headed to the bank, immediately I came out of the supermarket the security girl came to me.
I was waiting for James the guy that always drove me to bank whenever I want to deposit.
Security girl: sir playing with her fingers no sleep for your house this night.
Security girl: nothing she run back to her duty post
I shook my head and smiled, the girl dey crush for rich fine boy na. James arrived and we headed to the bank, after the depositing I went to my house to relax.
In the night I was just sleeping when I heard a loud bang at the iron door protecting the yard major entrance close to my room.
Voices: open this door!! we go break am down oh!!!
The yard quiet die, is like life have travelled out of the yard. I called two of those people that I asked to be my securities none of them picked, I called the third one.
Jojo: youngest landlord, wahala dey oh.
Me: na honourable talk and do dey call you like this in whisper carry your men come secure me.
Naso the call just ended, I checked if I made mistake with the number. I no make oh, I tried the number and it was switched off. The front iron gate slammed on the hallway floor with loud bang and heavy bang followed at my door.
I run enter bathroom turned to spiderman, I climbed the toilet wall and hung on top of the roof.
Voices: you no wan open abi? You go see wetin we go do you if we march this door down.
My bladder full, shit start to catch me. I no even know my natural problem that moment.
