Cars, Bikes, Trucks could be clearly seen trooping in and out of the University of Benin popularly known as UNIBEN, songs from different choirs could be heard from all angles of the university, it was another Sunday morning. Among these choirs is that of the popular Catholic Church, Saint Albert Catholic Church. The parish priest as usual stood on the alter and nodded his head to the soul winning song being sang by the choir, he had the microphone close to his mouth signifying he was ready for the homily. “ oh take me aaaaaaas I am, Oh take me aaaaasss I am, my lord Jesus, Christ died for me, lord take me aaaaas I am” the choristers sang on. The back door of the church suddenly flung open to reveal a young guy and girl, in the hand of the guy was a small pistol, the girl held him by the other hand and led him into the church, tears could be seen pouring down his small eye. The congregation needed no prophet to tell them to run as they began to jump the well-arranged benches all towards the exit door. Only the priest and some elders remained, the elders were old men and their old age would not allow them run, they decided to stay and face whatsoever might happen, it wasn’t their will.
The priest on his side knew he should not run, what will the people say about him? That the great Reverend Father Charles also fled from the church alongside the congregation on the arrival of the Major hit man of the “Night Crawlers”, Gabriel Eugene. The priest remained standing on the alter holding the Microphone tight to his hand and looking bold as Gabriel approached him with the girl who was dressed like a complete church girl, nevertheless, he continued to mummer the catholic prayer “hail Mary…..” . At last the deadly hit man of the Night crawlers got to the alter with his girlfriend Queen by his side, he took a look at the gun and threw it to the alter, “Father forgive me for I have sinned” he cried kneeling in front of the parish priest, “This is my first confession since my baptism” he cried the more. Father Charles took a look at him, he was obviously surprised seeing the well-known killer begging for forgiveness, he knew how much havoc he had caused and fear he had put in the hears of the student, if it was in his power, he would pray to God not to forgive him but he is a man of God. “May the good lord forgive you your sins in the name of the father, son and holy spirit” the priest did a sign of the cross at him, “go and sin no more” the priest added.May 30, 2018 at 6:53 pm #137

EPISODE: EPISODE 1
“Today as we all know is another prize giving day for us here at the Fisher’s academy, we would be giving out prizes in different categories ranging from intellect to sports” the mc voice echoed in all the speakers mounted around the four corners of the big hall where hundreds of students were seated happily, on one corner of the hall, students, about fifty of them could be seen in brown flowing gowns, they were the graduating students. The parents weren’t left out, a special corner was also allocated to them, the parents present were mostly those of the graduating students, and they had come to celebrate with their children. “At last, am done with the fisher’s college” Gabriel laughed turning to his friend Israel who was trying hard to make his cap fit perfectly into his head. “My brother, I join o, I can’t express how happy I am” Israel said finally fitting the cap into his head, “All the cane, all the shouts, they are all over” Nkechi put in from behind them, Gabriel only smiled admiring her beauty, she happens to be his college girlfriend.
Gabriel isn’t that perfect description of a lover boy, his mates actually thought him to be that kind of guy who has no affection for girls. That was what they thought of him, if they had carefully observed him, then it won’t take you so long to realize he is actually a shy guy. He himself can’t say what was wrong with him, he finds himself feeling uncomfortable anytime he was around the opposite sex, it wasn’t the way he was brought up, as a matter of fact, he grew up surrounded with girls, his three sisters. He happens to be a natural stammer, not a chronic stammer. Meeting him for the first time, you won’t deduce he is a stammer but man just hear him speak with the opposite sex, then you will see his full stammering potentials. For about two months after he was admitted into the Fisher’s college, he had only one friend, Israel. Israel on his part happens to be that guy the girls want to hang around with though he wasn’t as handsome as his friend, Gabriel. It was not like the girls didn’t like Gabriel, but which girl will want to go near a guy whose face is always planted inside his note? Apparently no one, or we might be wrong, Nkechi did. Nkechi Chris, a tall, fair beautiful big eyes girl was brought up under the meek hands of Mr. and Mrs. Chris, she was their last child and the only girl so little or no wonder why she was her parent’s favorite. She had started her primary education at the Fisher’s primary school and she had advanced further in the same school. Gabriel on his part finished his junior secondary school in one Pearl college, he had to leave the school for the Fisher’s college when his parent had to relocate to their permanent home.
It was in the sss 2 class that Nkechi couldn’t bear it anymore, she had tried giving Gabriel signs that she was in love with him, she knew he was also in love with her but due to one thing or the other, he couldn’t just bring himself to tell her. “yes, I said I wanted to see you” Nkechi started as she sat opposite Gabi in the school food canteen, it had been terrible trying to bring him to her, all thanks to Israel who had succeeded in playing him to her. “ yeah, Israel told me so “ came his thick smooth voice, she smiled as she heard him talking to her, not for once has he even spoken to her since he started the Fisher’s college. “ so if Israel haven’t told you, you wouldn’t have come to see me bah?” she asked in a bit of a baby’s voice, he didn’t reply. “I expected that” she smiled, “anyways, I will try my possible best to be brief, I know you are kind of a busy guy” she mocked him and watched to see her reaction, he simply fixed his gaze on her. “I have kept this to myself for too long, and I thought I should let it out so it won’t continue hurting me, you may choose to see me anyhow you want to from today but I can’t keep it any more, I love you Eugene” she said in a light voice, his reaction was the same, like she had not said anything. “Yeah, I know I have messed up myself to you, but I don’t regret saying it, Gabriel I love you” she added, this time he adjusted himself on the chair but still said nothing. “Never in my existence have I ever seen a guy as rude and proud as you are, I have told you what I have to, bye.” She said standing up from the plastic chair she was sitting on, anger could be visibly seen written all over her face, surely she was now regretting telling him how she felt for him. She dusted her skirt and took one last, long stare at him before turning to go, “ I was waiting for the part where you ask if I love you too” came Gabriel’s thick voice from behind, she turned sharply to face him, it was unbelievable, she never thought he would answer her, she had only come to try her luck. “After such long statement, the girl will always end up asking if the guy loves her too but there you are walking away” he smiled, had she ever seen him smile? He himself could not believe such words were coming from his mouth, he had never thought he could feel so cool with a girl, surprisingly, he wasn’t sweating as he always does when speaking to a girl, he wasn’t even stammering. She smiled at him to reveal her white teeth, this was the best day ever since she had been in the fisher’s college. “Do I need to ask? It is obvious you got nothing for me” she said in a bid to force words from his mouth, “why don’t you ask first” he smiled again, “ Save me the strength of asking” she pleaded, “ okay, I don’t hate you” he said stretching the word don’t, she breathed in relief when he completed the statement. “ and as for if I love you, what took you so long to ask me, I have been waiting for this day since I was born” he laughed, she couldn’t help but also laugh, “ I love you too” he added and got up from the chair, it was almost break over, his wrist watch told him so. “ I think we should go to class” he told the smiling Nkechi, “ not so fast, this always happens when two lovers meet themselves” she said staring at his broad chest, “ w…” he was about saying something when she wrapped her hands around him in a hug, he was sweating again.

And that was the beginning of the boring love life Nkechi got herself into, it would have been better she never fell in love than falling in love with Gabriel, a girl like Nkechi deserves anyone else but Gabriel, she deserves a guy who would be proud of her. Gabriel wasn’t that kind of guy that loves public display of affection, as a matter of fact he thinks a relationship should be private and known just to the both of them. That was the kind of love life he enjoyed, did he actually enjoy it or he was simply shy to let people know about what was going on. Nkechi was proud of him, who would not be proud to date the class most handsome guy, she wanted to show him off to the whole school that she was the lucky girl dating her class most handsome and brilliant guy. She prayed day and night for Gabriel to change, she wanted him to be a good lover boy but no, he wasn’t just clicking. She would boast to her friends about her dating Gabriel but who would believe her when even the Gabriel does not talk to her in class, he only calls to talk to her through phone, yes he was a good lover boy over the phone. She tried changing him but nothing she did was working, she tried talking him out of it but he wouldn’t just change. She endured it till they finished their secondary school and then of all the days in the world, she decided to break up on their graduation day, today.
“So let’s go straight to the event proper, the presentation of awards” the Mc shouted happily, he wasn’t really a mc, he was the school fine art teacher. “Now, I will call on the school principal to call on the parent who will be presenting the awards to them” he continued. “Let us put our hands together for our own, our Mr. Principal, Mr. Femi Odukola” the Mc shouted and the crowd with wild with shouts and claps as the principal came out of nowhere, he was in a white flowing Yoruba traditional attire, Agbada as they call it. “Thank you Mr. Mc ” the principal appreciated and sat on one of the chairs around the high table, the rest were already occupied. “ welcome sir, I will hand over from here” the Mc said and handed over the microphone to the principal. “Once again, thank you Mc, the proprietor, the great staff…………..” the principal greeted the house as they will always do every year. “now, let me introduce to you the woman who has been given the honor to present the prizes to these students, she is a woman of virtue, good character and conduct” the principal praised, “I am very pleased to have been given the honor to introduce to you, our one and only Mrs. Helen Eugene” he called out and from a corner of the hall, a tall, fair woman could be seen standing, she is Mrs. Eugene, Gabriel’s mother. She was wearing a long, blue gown, on her feet were way too high heels. She walked majestically to the stage accompanied by two male teachers who have been assigned the duties of security men for the event. “ clap for your mom now” Israel turned to Gabriel, “ why should I clap, I see her everyday” Gabriel answered him stealing a glance at Nkechi who was chatting happily with Pascal, the class most troublesome boy, “ what the hell is making her laugh so hard?” he asked himself, he was obviously jealous. He stared at his mom who was now climbing the platform, she is the exact replica of him, tall and gorgeous. She smiled at the principal as she shook hands with him, “welcome Mrs. Eugene” the principal smiled, “thank you so much Mr. Principal, it is my pleasure” came her sweet voice. “I will let you do your thing, you have been granted the honor to present awards of excellence to our evergreen outstanding grandaunts” the principal informed her. “The principal had always told us we were useless students, when did we become outstanding?” Israel asked his friend Gabriel whose attention was on Nkechi. “Once again sir, it is my pleasure” Mrs. Eugene smiled. “The proprietor, the principal……..” the normal protocol was observed. “In order not to waste our time, I will like to go into the prize giving proper” she said, “I know I should not forget to commend our graduating student, you all look outstanding today” she commended, the students clapped for themselves. “The first prize here goes to the most gentle student of the year, it goes to the person of Chima” she said and the graduating students all busted into laughter as chima came from the back to receive his award. He wasn’t actually gentle, rather he always faked quietness whenever a teacher enters their class so as to avoid questions, he was actually the class dullest boy. “Well done” Mrs. Eugene shook hands with him as she presented a wrapped gift to him. “I never knew the dullest guy also gets an award” Gabriel laughed. “The next award is for the most punctual prefect, it goes to senior James Dickson” she said, some of the graduating students still laughed, this time for his surname. She kept on calling names of students and the awards they were to receive, some of the awards were useless. “The next award goes to the school’s best sportsman, this boy is like a son to me, well behaved and athletic” she said, “ that is you” Gabriel said to Israel, “ who else will it be?” Israel smiled. “And it goes to MR. Israel Oluwafemi” she shouted, Israel got up slowly and first waved to the crowd who had gone mad shouting “Senior Israel!!!!!” He walked to Mrs. Eugene and hugged her, Gabriel for the first time got up and went towards the stage, he stood beside Israel and their both parents as the cameraman took a quick one. She called about two more names and then it came to the last, the whole place went calm and quiet, this was the moment they had been waiting for, the prize for the most intelligent student. “Okay guys, kill the tension, this is the period we have been waiting for the biggest prize of the night, the most intelligent student” she said as she opened the envelope containing the name, a smile which she tried to hide formed on her lips. “Am sure it is that wizard of a brother” Sandra smiled to Cecilia her sister, they were among the crowd, they were Gabriel sisters. “And the prize of the most intelligent guy goes to, hmm, this guy is hardworking, handsome, cute…“She was saying when she suddenly she busted into laughter, the crowd joined her and shout of “Senior Gabriel “could now be heard from every corner of the crowd. Gabriel bent his head smiling, Israel also smiled. “Go out now, everybody know say na you” Israel said in pidgin. “Just wait make them call me first” Gabriel smiled, “Okay, the prize goes to my angel, my only son, Gabriel Eugene” she shouted proudly, Gabriel took a deep breath and got up slowly, the moment was wow, no one was sitting, who haven’t heard of Gabriel, the one who had represented his school in about ten competitions and had come back home with the grand prize. He stared at the crowd, everyone was smiling, they all seem to love him, he stared at his mom and then to his dad who was coming from the crowd, his three sisters were also approaching the stage, this was what he had always wanted. “Let’s go now” Israel pushed him from behind, “Oh” he said and walked out of their corner towards the stage, the shouting increased. He climbed the stage and his mother quickly took him into her hands in a long embrace, his father took turn after her, it was like they planned to suffocate the young man that afternoon. “Mumu, you don do am again” his eldest sister Sandra whispered into his ear as she hugged him, he laughed. He was handed over a well wrapped gift, the sight was captivating. The cameraman took another quick one, even the proprietor took one with him, Israel’s parent were not left out, they came out to celebrate with their son’s best friend. Gabriel looked around like he was expecting to see someone among them, but there she was, in their corner still laughing with Pascal, she didn’t care about what was going on, Nkechi.May 31, 2018 at 6:41 pm #150

She was laughing happily with Pascal, she acted as if what was ongoing was none of her business, all her attention was on Pascal. Gabriel collected his prize and walked down the stage accompanied by those who had followed him up earlier, his countenance was not the same as it were when he was being called upon initially, he was now angry and jealous and he was trying everything possible to hide it.
At around 5pm, the party came to an end and the students except those graduating began to leave for their abodes. The graduating students are meant to play with themselves for the last time, who knows, they might not meet again. Some juniors who still wanted to catch fun also remained in school, some were with the graduating students disturbing them to at least have one selfie with them. Kate, an sss 2 student was present there that day, she is of average height and one of the most beautiful girls in the school. Rumors has it that she had dated all the male teachers in the school, don’t be surprised, those rumors were from those who had never had the opportunity to talk to her before. “Senior Gabriel” she called as she swayed her waist towards where Gabriel was, he was drinking from a bottle. She was putting on a pink gown which did the perfect job of revealing her curves, one of the deadliest the school has. “Yes” Gabriel turned to her smiling, she was holding an android phone, an intimidating one. “Please senior, if you don’t mind, can you take a selfie with me?” she asked with pleading eyes, this is actually the first time she is coming this close to Gabriel talk more of talking to him. “Sure” Gabriel smiled, the smile that formed on her small lips showed she was happy. She drew closer to him and placed her hands around his waist, “I don’t mind if you hold me the same way” she told him and he slowly placed his hand around her waist making sure to hold the vibrating hand from slipping down. “Thank you” she appreciated with a smile, Gabriel nodded cleaning the bead of sweat that have started to form on his forehead, she then ran off afterwards. Like they had been waiting for someone to go first, his class mates, the females started to rush to him for a selfie, they never believed he was so cool, they were scared of his straight face. Gabriel on his part saw it as fun, he never believed he could be this free with girls, holding their waist, putting his hands across their shoulders, standing chest to chest with them and the likes. He tried to imagine what he had been missing all these while, he never saw hanging out with females as this fun, for once he forgot Israel existed. It was the best moment of his laugh, talking and laughing with his female mate, all thanks to the sss 2 girl who had given them the courage. “I never knew you could laugh this long” Seyi, the class most brilliant girl told him, “You know, I actually use to think you were the one with a straight face” Gabriel laughed, “ look at you, so you are even this handsome? You know, I have never been this close to you” she said, “You can still come closer” he said and they both busted into laughter, wow, she couldn’t believe it.
Nkechi had taken pictures with almost all the guys in her class but she acted she didn’t see Gabriel all along. Her mind was made up, she was done with him, she can’t continue with the kind of boring relationship he wants. At intervals, she would steal glances at him just to see him laughing with other girls, “So he has been pretending all these while, or is he doing all these to get me Jealous? “She asked herself and answered with a hiss. “Am so done with you Gabriel” she murmured as she walked into a free corner.
Queen Nwok is the only daughter of Mrs. Nwok, she lives in Delta state with her mom. She is a tall beautiful girl in her teens, she keeps a low cut a bit higher than the normal low cut. Her complexion wouldn’t have been better with another if not her dark complexion, she is a dark beauty. This particular evening, she sat down outside her mother’s compound separating beans from its dirt, taking a good look at her, you will easily deduce that she was bothered as it seems she was thinking about something, who wouldn’t be bothered when you have 205 as your jamb result and you want to go for medicine in a university like the University of Benin, who wouldn’t?
Gabriel didn’t want it to end, he was having a hell of fun, he now thinks girls are actually funny that guys, now he thinks Israel is the most boring person he has ever met. “Hey Gabi, let’s take a quick one with your award” Seyi told him holding him by his hands, she had refused to let him go, if today is the only day she got, let her spend it with the guy she had always had an eye for right from when they were in sss 1. She had always eyed him secretly but never approached him due to fear of what people might say, it might destroy her reputation as the class most brilliant girl. “That’s not a problem” Gabriel said unwrapping the award, it was made of fine transparent glass, his name was boldly written on it and a small drawing of his smiling face was also on it, how the school got the picture he has no idea. “I think we should take this as a real picture, not a phone picture” he suggested signaling a cameraman to come, the man rushed to him with all the speed he could gather. Seyi posed with her hand around hand around his waist and her left leg across his right, her other hand was holding the award which was also heard by one of Gabriel’s hand. “Sweet” the cameraman commended as he flashed the light on their faces, “Take another one” Seyi said, “Don’t worry I will pay” she added taking a quick glance at Gabriel, that was the moment Nkechi decided to show up. Nkechi drew Gabriel away without any permission, she drew him to a free corner. “Gabriel, I am not interested in this relationship anymore” she said standing arm akimbo, “why?” Gabriel asked confused. “Nothing, am just tired of your fucking life” she said and made to walk away, “wait” Gabriel trued drawing her back, and then the unexpected happened, she slapped him, not on one cheek but on the both cheeks. As she slapped him, the glass made award he was holding fell off his hands and broke into pieces, Nkechi stared at it, hissed and turned to walk away, no she can’t, he drew her bank and landed her a resounding slap, that was the first time he touched a girl.June 1, 2018 at 7:21 pm #161

“Jesus Christ, I am sorry” he apologized staring at her in disbelief, he tried reaching for her hand but she beat it off, “It is over” she shouted as she walked away angrily, he opened his mouth to say something but the words didn’t come out. He looked down at his broken glass award and tears escaped his eyes, no, not for the award, but for the girl he had lost, for Nkechi. He looked around, there was no one in sight, he then wiped off his tears and left the school premises through the back gate. As he walked home that evening, a lot of thoughts ran through his mind, it was his fault, if he haven’t lived a boring lifestyle, Nkechi wouldn’t have left him, if he had been proud of her and proud to make her known to the world, then maybe he might still be with Nkechi. “This is the first time, I have learned from this” he smiled as he pushed open the gate to his house, he was the only one left outside so he locked the gate as he came in. “My smart prince” his mom went forward to hug him as he entered the house, he simply pushed her aside taking all who were in the sitting room by surprise. “What was the meaning of that?” his dad who was relaxing on a couch asked him, “It is the fault of the both of you” he shouted staring from his dad to his mom and then to his sisters. “What are you talking about?” his mom asked him, “You guys made me who I am today, a failure!!!” he shouted, Sandra his eldest sister who was sitting on a couch close to where he was drew back in fear. “Young man, what has come over you, what are you talking about?’ his dad asked, “Look at me, a total failure” he said gesticulating with his hands, “A full grown boy like me, I don’t know how to love a girl, that is the kind of lifestyle you have embedded in me” he shouted hitting his leg against the Centre wooden table, “Ouch!” he cried out in pain. “Just look at, as big as I am, I don’t know how to love, as big as I am, I am scared of girls” he said and this time Sandra bursted into a loud, long laughter. “Is that what all this is about? A girl? “His mom asked, “Gabriel, I have told you times without number, all those who start to love at this age end up as failures” his mom said, he stared at her for some seconds and then clapped his hands like he was applauding her. “Look at Israel, he has dated about five girls in the last two semesters, you yourself gave him the award of the best sportsman today, Israel is the set second most intelligent boy, now tell me, is Israel a failure?” he asked his mom staring directly into her eyes, “Don’t stare at me like that, we are not mate” she told him as she took a deep breath and fell into a couch. “Gabriel my boy” his dad started, “Not all those who date at this age are failure, but remember, what works for Mr. A might not work for Mr. B” his dad said hoping to sound convincing, “I am not Mr. A neither am I Mr. B” he told his dad and walked away from the sitting room angrily, “Tell me he is not my son” Mr. Jason turned to his wife who has her hand placed on her forehead, “I am not in the mood for Jokes” she told him without turning to look at him.
Queen brought out her sandals from her artificial wardrobe, she held them in her hands and slowly made to sneak out of her room. The time was 9pm of a good Friday night, it wasn’t the first time she would be doing that, she always sneaked out of the house every Friday night to the club some street away, the club where she had fun with her friends and some street guys, they would first start with all kind of immoral dances, from lab dance to others. She had successfully sneaked out of her room and was heading to the sitting room when her mother voice stopped her, “where the hell are you going to by this time of the night?” her mom asked with a raised tone, “I want to go and urinate outside” Queen Lied. “You want to go and urinate outside with your shoes in your hands, what happened to the toilet inside the house” her mom asked folding her hands arms across her breast, “please mummy leave me alone, it is my life and it is none of your business” she shouted at her mom, the old woman shook her head in pity as she stared at her only daughter, “Take a look at your life, some of your mates will be entering the University very soon, but look at you, you failed woefully and you call this thing you’re her living a life” her mom clapped her hands like a local gossiper, queen let out a mocking laugh. “Mom, if you had passed Jamb, why did your education stop at the sss 3 class?” Queen asked shocking the old woman, the old woman stared at her daughter speechless. “Talk now, why didn’t you complete your education?” queen asked again and thereafter hissed and walked out of the presence of her mother. The old woman stared at her daughter as she walked away, truly she had not completed her education because she had also failed Jamb, not once but seven times.
It was another Sunday morning in the University of Benin, boys and girls, men and women, husbands and wives could be seen trooping into the main gate in their best attires. Amongst these people was Cynthia, she was wearing a tight gown which brought out her body curves and shapes. She wore a blue high heel to match the blue gown she was wearing. You might mistake her to be going to a night club based on her dress code, her nipples could be visibly standing inside her cloth, she wasn’t putting on any bra. The rosary she was holding will leave you with the confirmation that she was going to the popular Saint Albert Catholic Church. She got the church quiet early today, at least, the parish priest was just approaching the altar. She took her sit in a chair about four rows from the front seat, she crossed her leg in a way that her pink panties could be visibly seen by those at the front seat, you just need to turn your neck a little to have a clear view. The parish priest was still approaching the altar, he was already about halfway to the altar when a loud gunshot was heard outside the church. The choir stopped singing immediately and the parish to be on a safe side of not being hit by a bullet ran to the alter leaving the altar boys to themselves. From the main entrance, about five guys in all white bounced into the church, who doesn’t know the night crawlers cult group? They bounced to the altar and one of them, probably a hit man came forward and stared at the parish priest. The congregation couldn’t run, the whole entrance has been blocked by members of the night crawlers. “Peace be unto you” the guy said the parish priest using a microphone, “And also with your spirit” the priest replied him, “I have come just as my boss as sent me, I promise not to kill anyone other than who I had come for” the cult guy said, his name as they call him is Rabbi. The priest nodded his head in fear and the guy immediately turned to face the congregation, his eyes caught Cynthia on the fourth row and he walked to her smiling. “I do not of my own will but that of he who sent me” Rabbi started, “please don’t kill me, I promise, I will agree to his proposal, I will date Raphael” Cynthia begged, “it is too late to do that now” Rabbi said to her as he cocked his gun, she wanted to say something but it was too late, Rabbi shot her head off and she fell heavily to the ground, her short gown rolled up a bit to reveal the pink G string pant she was putting on. Rabbi smiled and turned to the parish priest, “psalm 96:9 says and I quote, oh worship the lord in the beauty of holiness” Rabbi said, “Teach your congregations to dress properly” he concluded and walked towards the exit.

Queen walked out of the house into the night, she put on her sandals which she had been holding from inside the house and adjusted her dress as she stood just by her door step. She was putting on a bomber short, more like a pant, and it was complemented by a tiny white shirt. She walked briskly out of her compound, she let out a silent hiss as she walked away completely into the dark.
“Royale club house” as they call it is one of the well-known club house for teens, it is situated somewhere in Delta, it was always buzzing day and night most especially on Fridays. It is here you meet all kind of immoralities, girls get wasted and used up, and boys get to show their talents as they waste girls, some of the decent girls who refuse to get wasted would rather show off their talents on the dance floor with their seductive dance steps, the decent girls. Lot of mercury lights could be seen inside the club, on the stage is a girl wearing something similar to a catapult as pant, she was dancing seductively with an iron rod which stood straight on the round platform that served as the stage floor. She had no shirt on, just a thin pink bra to match the thin, pink rope she was putting on as pant. At a corner of the hall is a young muscular guy with well-trimmed beards and well-built chest, he had a red tight shirt on, a blue jeans trouser was to match. Surrounding him were about five girls, their dress code wasn’t far different from that of the stripper displaying on the stage. He would sometimes kiss some of the girls and smooch them, but nothing more than that. The dance floor was being occupied by teens displaying their dance steps in rugged manners, some were drinking as they danced while some took pleasure in smoking as they received lap dance from the decent girls.
No one noticed queen come in, who would notice her amongst the crowd? She stared at the stripper displaying on the dance floor and smiled. She stopped to watch her for some seconds, she then smiled again and made her way through the crowd to the corner of the hall where the young muscular guy was. “Baby” the young guy hugged her as she approached him, “what took you so long?” he asked her, “don’t mind my old woman, she wanted to stop me from coming” Queen smiled so also did the young man. “What are you doing with them?” she asked him pointing at the five girls, “You were taking long so I decided to keep myself busy, moreover you are not my girlfriend so you shouldn’t be bothered about me with them” he smiled as he pressed his big hands on Queen’s buttocks, “I am not bothered, I am just asking” Queen laughed. “No time to waste dear, let’s catch fun” he told her as he led her to the dance floor, his name as they call his is John Femi.
It was two days after the graduation party, Gabriel was in his small room keeping himself busy with some sort of magazine, he would occasionally drop the magazine to think about Nkechi, he had tried calling her since the day before yesterday, she had picked just once and that once, battered him with insults of different kinds. He had ceased calling her when he called up to thirty times without her picking, he tried reaching her on Facebook, but her latest update read “found a new guy, he is caring and loving”. He would pick up thr magazine again and pretend to be reading, truth be told, he wasn’t reading. “Gabriel!!!” Israel’s shout interrupted his thought, he stood up immediately and rushed to the sitting room where Israel was shouting his name. “Israel, how far?’ he asked coldly, “Never been so fine, guess what” Israel tapped him, “you got a new girl” Gabriel said falling into a couch. “No, something better” Israel said, Gabriel opened his eyes wide and stared at Israel, there has never been anything better for Israel than getting a new girl. “I can’t guess again” Gabriel smiled. “Okay, I just checked my jamb result and guess what bro, I got 299” Israel shouted moving his body to an imaginary music. “Wow, good news, please help me check mine, I don’t have data” Gabriel begged, he has taken off his mind from the jamb exam he wrote some days before their graduation party. “take, check yourself” Israel passed his phone to Gabriel, Gabriel collected the phone and took a deep breath before putting in his login details, he then closed his eyes and waited for some minutes before opening them to stare at the phone again. “320!!!!” he shouted as he jumped on Israel out of joy, he knew he would pass but he never knew he would pass this well. “Gabriel na you o, even for jamb?” Israel laughed happily, at last they would continue their friendship at the University of Benin when they finally end up as roommate.
In a dark corner outside the Royale club, a boy stood very close to a girl, it was clear what they were doing, they were having a quick one. “More usual, you are always sweet” the guy said to the girl, it was John Femi and the girl is no other than Queen. “You don’t need to tell me that” queen laughed pulling up her bomber shot to cover her black buttocks, “I just thought I should let you know once again” john Femi said as he counted some money and gave them to Queen, Queen smiled. “I won’t be able to come next week Friday, I have exams on that day and you should know of UNIBEN exams, they will weak you for the whole day” he said laughing, “That shouldn’t be a problem, I will just come around to catch fun with any random guy” she told him and he nodded as he made to go, he would be travelling back to Benin the next day, that was how he do visit every Friday just to have a quick one with Queen, he would come all the way from Benin to Delta just for a quick one. He had taken some steps away from Queen when he suddenly turned back like he had remembered something, he walked back to her, “ Remember Queen, you are not my girlfriend” he told her while Queen bursted into laughter, “I Know” she said still laughing.
