I hung on the walls of my bathroom, thank God say the tiler no go do am till reach the dome, I placed my both hands on the walls and placed my shaking both legs also.
My door fell with a slam and I started sweating all over, I heard them walking around my bedroom. Even tumbling my stuffs, I pray say make them no break that plasma TV, if them try am I go come down from here go tell them how much I take buy am.
Voice1: see fu*ck up! nobody dey this room na.

They went to the kitchen after the door of the bathroom, and started searching. I heard my pot opened, bia… how human being go hide inside pot? you better close that pot oh!

My heart started knacking drum, naso I go take die go. The spirit of my forefathers, God of Abraham… I go start to go church, I never wan die please…
They opened the bathroom door and shot beams of light from torchlight inside the bathroom, hopefully say I dey behind the door.
Voice2: nobody dey inside her.
Voice3: check the back of the door.
Naso I start to dey pee without control, I tried to hold it oh! but the “chorrooooorrr” sounds refused to stop, see wahala.

They all left the door thinking I switched on the tap on the sink, after sometimes they returned. The stupid piss don stop.
Voice1: you sure say this girl never tidy himself?
Voice3: na wetin I dey reason here sef.
Voice2: make we move, before police go reach here.
I heard their footsteps leaving, so you think say I go come down for here? I stayed there till another day came.
When I started hearing the voices of my tenants at my door, some are already inside my room.
Voices: wey them? why them run? what of honourable talk and do.
I jumped down from were I have hung myself through out the night, immediately I landed on the marbled floor. My legs started vibrating like someone who is about to c*um, I no blame my legs sha…
I quickly opened the door of my bathroom and stepped out, they were surprised and happy to see me.
Voices: them nofit do you anything! Honourable talk and do! nothing do you.
Me: if you no want make I increase your rent, before I close and open my eyes all of ona don viaaam.
I closed my eyes before I opened it everyone of them have gone, I brushed my mouth quickly and took my bath. Boiled the soup and ate all the meats, then dashed out the soup. Dressed up and packed some clothes that I can go into hiding for sometimes, I too young to die.
The primary election is just three days away and I dey die today, em no make sense na.
I took a bike and headed to the main road, I came down to decide whether to go to my supermarket and hide there or to go to a hotel, I was confused.
I picked the first thought and boarded a taxi and headed to the supermarket, I came down from the taxi and met the security girl at the door. She wasn’t smiling this time… I come dey wonder.
Security girl: no no… Go go…
Me: wetin you mean?
Security girl: nothing.
she smiled at me and said welcome, I no come dey understand the girl. Something dey worry am, I stood at the door looking at the girl playing with her fingers.
The bag I packed my clothes hung loosely on my shoulder, wetin I go do myself like this. Where I wan get charms wey go protect me as I dey like this?
I turned away from my supermarket and a car pulled over at the tarred road side just close to the gutter, I no need to hear whistle.
I kicked away my shoes and pulled off my bag and ran towards Aunty Fatty shop.
