At Ogba
An old man sat under a cool shade, savouring the coolness of the fresh morning air, a pair of reading spectacle could be seen resting on his nose, as he peruse through the contents of the dailies, everything in his palatial home spoke of immense wealth, he was Senator Olarenwaju, Kemi’s father, just as he opened the last page of the newspapers, he heard his Rottweiler dogs barking uncontrollably, Umar! Umar!! The old man called to the house guard for him to see to whatever was wrong with the dogs, but there was no response from him, so he stood up to go check it out by himself, After taking some few steps from the cool shading tree, he bent towards the dogs cage, and there he found Umar in the pool of his own blood.

What??? Good gracious, old man exclaimed!

He rushed over to the dead guard, and shook him hard but there was no life in him,

Oh no this can’t be happening, wake up Umar, he called, but then he heard the click of guns on his head.

Kemi’s Dad: Please please don’t kill me please he begged, but the gunman said nothing instead he released the trigger, and the bullet drove into his skull, it was followed by another one that went through his chest as he dropped to the ground, and off went the killer.

At Kemi’s Apartment

She and Oscar could be seen resting on her bed, they were just on a gist, this was the old Oscar kemi thought, she was so happy to have him back, he made he laugh the had continued to share the happiness of happy couples when Kemi’s phone rang, she picked it was an unknown caller, it was the police, they told her the situation on ground at home, and at once she broke down to tears, Oscar was shocked to see the once lively kemi that they were both having fun with words not quite long ago, breaking down to tears after receiving a phone call, he tried his best to get her to tell him what the matter was, but she never said anything instead she continued in her sobbing, just when he was about giving up on asking her, she said.

Kemi: They took him Oscar, they killed him.

Oscar: Killed who? Who took who my love? He asked, still surprised at the outburst.

Kemi: My dad, my all, my king, they killed him the police called to tell me.

Oscar: Holyshit!!! What the hell, he said and stoop down to console her, he tried his best, she gave in accepting fate.

Kemi: Baby, are you sure this isn’t you, you threatened me to kill him babe!!

Oscar: I swear I am not, you know I wouldn’t hard your old man he said, we never had problem with him.

Kemi: It’s fine babe, it will never be well with the perpetrators of this evil act, my father was a pure man even to this very day, that I can vouch for, she said and broke down to tears again, and Oscar consoled.

Oscar: I promise to help you avenge him babe, please don’t cry, he said.

Kemi: ok babe I am going home, she said.

Oscar: I am coming with you love.
Minutes later, they both entered the car, and zoomed off to ogba.


Today been the day mom was to visit dad at the hospital, I had to be there too I went over to the hospital I met my mom there, she was all over dad, who was getting fine, but immediately she noticed me, her mood dropped, dad was overwhelmed by the presence of his complete family, he brought the topic, about those that were after his life, and how God has disappointed them, I tried to chip in on the topic, how great God was to give us a upper hand over our adversaries, but mom never contributed, she kept giving me looks, probably imagining what sought of devil I was, how much I could cover up my dirty games, my dad noticed mom’s unusual reserved nature, and he asked ‘‘Imade, are you not grateful to God over the victory he granted us and sustaining my life?’’ he asked, of which she affirmed, and also cautioned we stay safe and be very careful from now onwards.
Sorry about your blood rise, dad stated I was tensed, but I noticed mom responded fine, and I knew at once it was Cathy’s handwork. After a filled day at the hospital, even when I tried to get mom’s attention but she always find a way to wave me off, I went back to the mansion.

We were set for war, for a test run, our boys rolled out that evening in massive numbers, we took the Fox unaware, and smite them they didn’t see it coming, they walked freely on campus, far away from their safety zone, which was the fox mansion, and that was our chance 15 boys died that evening, all were on the fox side. I was somewhat happy at the outcome, it seems very much, how well Joshua has blended into the confra way.

Nelson called that evening telling me he was getting better from his wound, I was happy, I fed him on the latest, he was happy I was still alive, but really happy about Eric out of the picture, he had confessed that even when he and Eric had come save me sometime ago, he really didn’t like the dude, we talked more about many things, before I hang up.
