W e drove silently, it seems like am
afraid of
edna, what do you guys expect. A sixteen
years old boy in the midst of a cultist,
well
no risk no gain, at least i dey gain alot
from
tina.
Edna: why are you silent?
Me: well ermm, nothing just that i feel
like
you hate me.
Edna: yes you are right, i really do hate
you,
and if not for tina i would have put a
bullet
on your head long time ago.
Me: why, what exactly did i do?
Edna: well, since you want to know i will
tell
you, we are suppose to be half way out
of
nigeria now, but tina refuse to leave you
behind because of the silly love she have
for
you.
Me: why would you want to leave
nigeria? I
said getting interested.
Edna: something happen in school and
edna
believe they will use you to get her, and
if
we leave they might kill you, thats why
we
came back and i have been watching you
since then.
Me: nah all this one na silly story, i nor
believe any of them or you think say i be
pikin?
Edna: believe it or not, you are the bait,
and
we have to protect you no matter, even
if
we die doing it and please dont tell tina
any
of this.
Me: i wont because i dont believe it.
We arrive at their compound and edna
park
the car outside, one of the security lady
open the gate for us na so we match
enter
like ambassador.,
edna opened the door, we enter inside,
nobody dey house, na where tina come
enter, so edna dial tina’s number, she
told
tina that she went outside to buy
something
that we should sit and wait for her,.
I sat at one of the luxurious chair, while
edna enter inside room, i concentrated
on
the movie because i like film well well,
edna
tie towel pass my front enter toilet, omo
see
her ass dey blow groudnut .
I sleep for the long cushion chair dey
wait
for tina, then edna walk out of the
bathroom
with towel tied around her waist, wet and
smiling, walking towards me in a
seductive
way, she untie the towel and it fell on the
ground,
Me: what are you doing, i said trying to
stand up, she push me back on the
chair,
and use her hand to rub my dicck, i just
dey
look like person wey them hypnotise, she
unbuckle my belt and put hand inside my
trouser and bring out my dicck, she spit
on it
and rub very well making it to rise, she
sat
ontop me and i moan softly as my dick
enter inside her.
I was dumbfounded looking at her like a
mad man.
saw some new intruments at the first
altar e
be like say them don buy the new
instrument for us at last, so after
prayer
pastor pray for the instrument, fine fine
new
instrument come see as people they
happy
and jubilate, but to me thats a total
brouhaha because whats the need of
buying
new instrument when we cant use it till
three months time,.
We arrange the instrument keep for
instrumental room awaiting for the day
to
come when we will explore it, things go
smoothly till offering time,
pastor: offering time.
Church: blessing time.
Pastor: it is good to give to the lord,
God
has bless us in so many ways we cant
even
imagine, so put your hand in your pocket
and bring the biggest seed,.
Chai i forget to carry offering oh, na
which
kind wahala be this na, so everybody go
come waka leave only me for seat, chai
see
fuckup oh.
We sing song and everybody started
dancing, rejoicing to God, why i like my
church be say we sabi praise God,
wether
instrument or not, we they dance like
lord’s
chosen member wey them no they play
band for their church, come see
jubilation,
from front row everybody dance

do
now, so i dance follow them, i reach
where i
go put offering, i just chuck my hand put
for
the offering box like say i put offering
(god
go understand), then i dance like agama
lizard back to my seat,. .
When tina came out to offer her offering
walking majestically not even shaking her
hand, i keenly observe something, jack
who
was sitting down before stood up
immediately, looking at tina surprisingly,
tina
didnt know but i saw him starring at her
with red eye till she get to her seat, then
he
took his belongings and left the service
to a
place unknown to me.
We finish the service in peace by 1pm
before then tina don they disturb my
phone
since say make we dey go house when
preaching still dey go on, lol i guess
shes
not use to it, i told her to be patient that
it
is not good to leave the service without
sharing the grace, she manage to hold
on till
we recess out, glory be to God at last
service don end. i went inside and took
my
bible , i saw mabel coming over to my
place,
i quickly enter the dressing room and
remove my garment i pass there come
outside, why this girl dey do me like this
na,
she know the kind of suffer wey i suffer
last
time, or she nor dey pity me self, since
that
flogging every love wey i get for her
disappear and as tina don come back na
i
dont think there is any possibility for me
and
her to be together again.
I ran outside the gate and saw tina
standing
at the back of the car,.
Tina: wetin come delay you like this?
Me: we been they discuss one issue like
that choir stuff, make we they go na (i
dont
want mabel to meet us outside).
I enter the front seat while she balance
at
the driver’s seat, she start the car,
reverse
and sped off, i look at the side mirrow
and
saw mabel coming out of the gate,
looking
her left and right as if she is looking for
somebody, i just smile for my mind, na
later
wey my head come down i come know
say

Me: where are we going.
Tina: house.
Me: which house?
Tina: mine of course, any problem?
Me: no its just that i was expecting you
to
drop me at my house first.
Tina: i will drop you later in the evening
dear

Chai so me no go carry my blessing

my brother and my mum go carry come
from their church go cover all of us, we
drove silently then tina started looking at
the
side mirrow suspiciously i dey watch her
as
she continue to look at the side mirrow.
Me: why do you keep on staring at the
mirrow like that?
Tina: that black suv car has been
following

I look back and saw the black car
following
us, so tina put more fire for the jar and
start
driving faster, the person fire im own
motor

Me: who are they and what do they
want?
Tina: i dont know, but dont worry i will
take
care of it, give me my phone inside the
bag.
I open the bag, carry the phone and
handed
it to her, she dial one number like that.
Tina: 001 in need of assistance, a black
SUV

As she dey talk for phone, the motor get
close hit us from back, her phone drop, i

Tina: no i will handle it, dont worry.
Did she just say i should not worry, i
wish

then the worst happen, the person sitting
close to the driver of the SUV rolled
