Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 37
My legs were shaky, my muscles congealed
and my face was soured but I can’t suddenly
spoil a nice trick. So I went over to her car,
with shaky legs. I tried to control. myself so
that it won’t become over acting.
“Ma, am going to the house to get some
clothes gor my Nephew” I lied simply
“O, I see, where is the House located, mind if I
drop you?” She asked with kindness.
“Noooo don’t drop me jooor just go and let
me go, no time again” I muttered in my head.
I won’t dare say that to her naw.
“No ma, don’t bother yourself, I have put you
through a whole lot of stress already” I
protested. She won’t have any of that as she
asked me to hop into the car.
“Am I complaining?” She said with a smile
playing on her face.
If you see my face that time eh, what the hell!
it was squeezed like rumpled skin. “Why the
hell didn’t I wait for long before going out!” I
barked at myself on the silence of my heart.
“So where are we heading to?”
“Idiaaat, no ask me again! Na your daughter I
wan go see!”,I replied but in my head. I kept
quiet and she took it that as a sign that I was
” Don’t worry baby, your nephew will be fine, I
hope he was not badly injured” She asked.
“Madam leave me jooor, I no get any Nephew,
and if I get God forbid make accident do am” I
talked excitedly in my head.
“No ma it’s not much” I managed to say with
a regretful voice. .”Good so where are we
heading to? She asked again.
“UniAbuja” I replied without thinking. And she
rephrased what I said. That was when I came
to my senses.
“Yes ma UniAbuja, my aunty lives just the
street opposite” I lied again. where that came
from I don’t know.
” Ok she said and we drove away. Inside the
car I was thinking of the next act to take.
“Which Direction I wan give this woman now?”
I have never been to UniAbuja or it’s suburbs
before so I wonder where I will direct her too.
But as a Jungle boy I knew there must be a
way out so I decided to keep calm and wait
for the future to unfold.
Soon my phone started ringing and I quickly
cut the cakk as I saw it was Ada calling.
“Mtcheeeeeeeeeeeewww” I sighed. “All this
flashers sef” I added so she won’t know I waa
the one that cut the call. She only beamed a
smile as she focused on the high way.
I typed a quick message to Ada….’Am on my
way babe, in a traffic’ Immediately I put the
phone to Silent mode again. I waa still
wondering how ro escape her when the car
suddenly came to a halt.
“I looked up to know what the matyee was
That was when I realised we have arrived
“So where are we taking now. I always love
the right hand side of the road so I just
pointed to her the right side of the road.
The road was a dusty one, it contrasted with
the smooth asphalt we diverted from. The
Sienna sailed smoothly in the dusty road, as
we continued driving I waa becoming alarmed
because I was not seeing any houses around.
U kept quiet and we continued driving till I
couldn’t take it anymore.
“Sorry ma, please this is the wrong way. It
should be the second street” I pleaded with
her. She just seem to be too understanding.
She nodded turned the stirring, soon we were
driving back the dusty road.
The car gave a jerk as we landed back on the
snooth asphalt . “This way”,I pointed to her
after I have stretched my neck to see that
houses are down the street.
“Are you sure?” She asked.
“Yes ma this is the way”
As we drove past houses I was happy with the
way tye environment looks, houses
were.haphazardly arrangd and I knew that
soon we will get to a narrow road that is bad.
That anticipated road is where lies the
solution to my next plan.
