A Story By Aliyu Muhammed Auwal
Amina keeps on trying the number to no avail; she knows that this is unlike Kamal, as he hardly ignores her call. She begins to suspect that he may have stolen the money and that is why he is ignoring her call. She dials Ahmad’s number, his only friend that she knows, the phone rings and after a while it says switched off.
Madam Shine: “What are you standing there pressing your phone for? Where is your fiancé who stole my money?”
Amina: “Ma, he is not a thief, there is no way he could have stolen your money”.
Madam Shine: “If he didn’t steal my money then where is he?”
Amina: “I can’t reach him on phone”.
Madam Shine: “You can’t what? That is it! I can’t take it anymore; the police have to take over”.
Amina: “But what about Jummai, maybe she stole the money and that is why she ran away”.
Madam Shine: “You and Wasiu will rot in jail until you produce Jummai and that your criminal of a fiancé.
Kamal is on a bike to Ahmad’s place to find something to eat when his phone begins to ring. He ignores the call with the intention that he will call back the caller when he gets to Ahmad’s place. Unfortunately for him, as his battery had drained and there is power outage in Ahmad’s area.
Kamal: “Bro, how far, now. When dey carry una light?”
Ahmad: “O boy, e never too tey like that sha”.
Kamal: “Abegi, that’s what you always say; e never too tey. Yet, I never come your house come meet light before”.
Ahmad: “That’s Naija for you, now. At least I better pass you, I get house. You, where is your house?”
Kamal: “My babe house na my house now. See when this contract I am doing hits ehn, I will spoil you all with money, then na to carry Amina go straight to the altar after I don use the money buy duplex in Asokoro”.
Ahmad: “Forget talk, jare. Which mumu contract is that? You and I know that you are not into any contract so stop deceiving yourself and stop thinking that you can deceive me, I am not Amina who you go about deceiving”.
Kamal: “Na you sabi, o. Abeg, any food dey house? I am so hungry!”
Ahmad: “Oh boy, nothing o. I was just about going to Ladidi’s house when you came in.”
Kamal: “If food will be there, why not man, let’s go there”.
They set out to Ladidi’s house and which is about five minutes’ walk from Ahmad’s house. They meet Ladidi and her friend in the house cooking.
Kamal: “Ladi baby, you can use your cooking skills to snatch another woman’s husband”
Ahmad: “No just try am o, I can’t share my angel with anyone”.
Ladidi: “hahaha…you guys are so funny. By the way, this is my friend Fatima and she is the one cooking not me”.
After the introduction, they settle down to eating and Kamal could not help but stare at Fatima’s extra-large boobs which she deliberately flaunted at him with her provocative moves.
Kamal: “You are such a great cook, Fatima. I almost licked my fingers, not sure I have ever tasted anything this good. If not that I am engaged, mehn I would have asked you out here and now.”
Ladidi: “It’s not too late to port to here, now. After all you are not married”.
Fatima: “Yes o, it’s not too late. Even if you are married, I don’t mind, polygamy is allowed in Islam”.
Kamal: Why is there no light here?
Fatima: Are you new in Nigeria?
Kamal and Fatima kept talking and talking as if they’ve known each other for years. Their conversation lasted for few minutes, say 25 minutes and there could not be any trace of boredom during this period. Kamal decides to throw in a joke
Kamal: Anyways, make I give una small jokes before NEPA brings light sef. “Hin get this popular Church for Lagos, After the mid-week service, A wife saw her husband sitting quietly in the garden.. she got concerned and decided to ask him.
Wife: Hey Darling, why are you sitting so quiet in the garden? What is it that is bothering you?
The Husband replied…
Husband: I’m still thinking about what the pastor said. It doesn’t make me comfortable.
Wife: What is it?
Husband: The Pastor confessed he slept with all married women and Single Ladies in the church but only one woman doesn’t want to sleep with him.
Wife: That must be Mrs Eunice. She thinks she is better than everyone.
Everybody was thrown into uncontrollably belly laughs. Fatima seems to like Kamal at this minute.
They set out to watch movies as soon as PHCN restores electricity and Kamal plugs his phone to charge. Immediately the phone comes up, Amina’s message comes in asking if he stole her madam’s money and requesting him to see her at the Police Station where she is being held.
Kamal: “Guys, wahala dey o, Amina is in Police net for stealing and they are suspecting me because I went to their shop today. She said I should come over to the station now”.
Ahmad: “Don’t try it o. If you go there, you will be arrested and nobody will come out to bail you”
Fatima: “Yes o, don’t even try it. If they arrest you, Amina will leave and get married to another man while you rot in jail. Listen, I am here for you, Come and relax on my back let me massage you. Life is too short to hand one’s self to the police”, she said drawing near to him and caressing him while Ahmad and Ladidi excuse them as if they planned it earlier.
Question: “Will Kamal ignore Amina in the cell? Will Madam Shine and the Police find Jummai? Will Kamal fall for Fatima’s seduction?
