Chapter 15

Bayo’s bus was waiting for me at Iyana-Iba, infront
of Lasu. It was about 5:00am . He was dressed on
black shirt and black pants.
Bayo: I brought some clothes for you, you can
change inside. You are lucky we have the same
Me: im glad.
Bayo: you dey mad!..u no miss me ni?
Me: mtchwww. .
Bayo: No wahala. ..
I got into the bus to change clothes. I tossed a
pack filled with rice to him. Cynthia gave me to eat
as breakfast.
Bayo: I know you love me this boy!
Me: yes I bleeping do!.. I bleeping support your
club!..why do u choose to lie to me?
Bayo: you dey yarn dust…which kain talk be this?
Me: you didnt take me to the hospital, you didnt
sell my car to pay my bills… You lied to me..Tell
me the truth!
Bayo brought out a stick of cigarette, it was
Benson. As he puffed some into the air, I longed
for a stick myself. Perhaps benson was my brand.
He tossed me a stick and with all humilty, bowed
abit to light it on my lips.
Bayo: I wanted you to find out the truth yourself,
thats why I sent you to the hospital.
Me: I dont believe you, you probably thought it will
trigger my memory
Bayo: dat one too dey.

afterwards but tell me everything.
Bayo: kill Bawo…u don dey crase o..

    Nice update: the Yoruba terms are names of popular bus stops along festac – mile 2, the only other term “wole” means enter.
