Episode 19

Tade hissed before pouting his mouth towards Made.
“Why you just come sneak on me that? You sabi say na correct slap I wan land you before? ”

“Wetin I do na? I no even sneak, na just play I dey play with you. Your mind no even dey here.”

“So? Wetin bring you come?” Tade eyed him nastily.

“Guy, Guy, take am easy na! We dey fight?”

“Yes, we dey fight!” Tade replied, obviously lying. He knew what Made will say if he says the truth.

He will simply say: “Get a girlfriend!”

Tade was not ready to hear that horse shi.t!

“No vex, me dey think about assignment.” He finally apologised to Made.

“Easy oh! Made said. Na so person dey start to dey mad. Na just assignment oh.” Then Made started gisting about school and the babes for im department, Tade half-listening. Then he asked about Chuks.

“I hear say babe dey fight over am. Na true?”

“Made! Made!! Made!!! You don come with your gossip!”

“Wetin you dey listen before? Abeg na true or lie?”

“I no sabi, ask Chuks when you see him.”

“Okay oh! He made to leave. Before I go, somebody said I should give you this.” He brought out a piece of paper, obviously full scalp sheet. “Take.”

“Who give you the paper?” Tade demanded.

“Na one guy give me, im talk say na babe send am. Wetin be my concern?” Made said as he left

]His curiosity grew as he stared at the leaving body of Made, until he was out of sight, then he opened the paper, which was previously sealed with candle wax.

It was ……a kind of love letter.

“Tade,
I know you are single and I don’t care if you are in a relationship, but I like you and I want to be your girl. I don’t know why you are avoiding me but I don’t care. What I care about is the well-being of our relationship, which is none existent for now. If you keep resisting any effort from me to get close to you,……………… figure out the rest.”

Tade looked with horror, and then interest at the letter. He knew who could write this.

It had to be Wande.

Meanwhile, far away on Ede road, a meeting is happening…………..

“Who did you see with Toke?” a young handsome man bearing a scar across his eye asked.

“Na one bush boy dem call Korede.” Another one answered. “The idi.ot even had the nerve to openly date her.”

“Blade, Kira, go send this imp a message so he will have a taste of me, Nightcrawler!”

“When shall we strike, sir?” A light skinned dude with a sly smile said.

“Two days time, Kira.”

“But we have that senator’s work to do on that day, don’t we?” Blade, a short, dark dude with excess hair on his body asked.

“Stop shying away from such work, Blade.” Kira told him. “You may soon need us to do such for you.”

“Kira, mind you business.”

“Blade, I was just……..”

“Enough, both of you!” Nightcrawler whispered at them. “We are in a busy road in the full glare of the day, do you have some manners? If you speak any more, I will have your heads. We will send the message next week!”

Meanwhile, Korede was doing some ‘serious’ business with Toke.

“You see, am a very nice person.” He stated. He had just brought her some ice-cream from Fivers as they walked around SUB.

“So?”

“I love you, Toke. You see, I can d anything for you, even lay my life for you. And my dad is rich and successful. He is well connected, so I will be well-placed. If you don’t reject me now, you won’t……”

“Will you just shush it there, Korede! Who do you think you are? You, this church rat that can hardly afford #500 Ice-cream! You that is living on Toyin….”

“Forget about…..”

“Shut up! If I hear anything from you again, I swear I will punch you to hell and back” She shook her fists. “Better leave me alone, Korede. You can’t handle me, not to talk of my boyfriend.” She walked away swiftly, swagging her as5 around.

“I swear, I go still tap that as5!” Korede said. He did not know that he had other things to worry about.

Episode 20

]Chuks had advised him against his chase, but Korede was heedless and unrepentant, so Chuks had freed him.

On Monday morning, Tade was reading a magazine when a call came through.

“Who is this?” Tade picked the call.

“Please, are you Tade?”

“Yes, this is Tade. Can I help you?”

“Your roommate has been found in the Health Sciences, seriously injured. He is been rushed to the hospital, so he asked me to call you.”

“Which roommate?” Tade asked.

“Korede. We found him on the road to…….”

“Yes, yes I heard you the first time. Which hospital is he in?”

“OAUTHC.”

An hour later, Tade was at the emergency ward, looking at Korede, a bit sorry for him but not surprised at where he landed.

Korede face looked like a bag of buns so finely placed to resemble a face, his eyes were heavy laden with stress and his hair was recently combed, like it was riddled with dirt previously. His left hand was already connected to a drip, while his right hand was on plaster, obviously broken. His two legs were in similar condition as the right hand and were consequently supported by ropes tied to the ceiling

“What happened?”

Korede was just looking at Tade sheepishly, unable to talk. A nurse came in.

“The best you can do for now is to pray for him and visit him. His jaws were broken and he has to be in that position for weeks.” She chipped in.

Tade then noticed his mouth was been supported by something that looked like iron thongs. He shook his head and left.

During the next few weeks, he and Chuks showed up at Korede’s side in the hospital, waiting for weeks. Finally, when it was barely two weeks to exams, Korede could talk.

“What happened, Korede?” Chuks asked.

“Omo, as e happen I no fit talk. I dey waka go hostel as I just finish that assignment wey I tell you that lecturer give my class. Na so I see Gozie, one of my classmate. Na so we dey talk then one bros come joined us. As we wan reach the roundabout, the bros come slap me one heavy slap ehn, e too heavy. Gozie sef run, but as one pick race, another bro come join rack me come down. They come drag me go the bush wey dey the other bus-stop wey near SUB, yeeeh!….” Korede yelped as his arm started to hurt, much like it was burning.

Chuks and Tade tried to settle him down. Then the nurse of earlier, now known as Nurse Nike came in.

“You guys are still bothering my patient. Oya, make una go, e don do.” She shooed both Tade and Chuks together as they left Korede.

As soon as they reached outside, they both burst into laughter.

]Shebi we tell am? Chuks said amidst all the laughter as they found their way back to the hostel.

Meanwhile, Nightcrawler was in Awolowo hall, enjoying a political argument that was ongoing when a text message came in.

“Message still in custody of the receiver. Receiver still in the trash bin.”

Nightcrawler smiled. He won’t take any rubbish, especially from a non-initiate like that Korede.

Not that Toke could fall for him. He knew the kind of lady she was and had it in his mind that Korede will not smell an inch near her cooking pot, not to talk of having s-x. The one that was a threat was her class rep, the one they call Chuks the Quiet one.

That’s why he needed to send the message through Korede.

Meanwhile at Fajuyi hall, Chuks got an incoming call from Toke.

“Chuks, please see me.”

Chuks looked around in fear and when he did not see her, he heaved a sigh of relief.

“What do you want from me?”

“Chuks, I need help with my work. Please I don’t know what I did to you, but am sorry.”

“Okay, where are you?”

“I am in Moremi.”

“You expect me to find my way to Moremi? Please I am busy.”

“Okay, let me meet you wherever you are.”

He sighed again. “Let’s meet at Fajuyi cafe.”

As she walked towards Fajuyi hall, Toke wondered what happened to a previously sound relationship.

She had known Chuks since his first year and they became fast friends. What attracted her to him initially was his quiet demeanor, coupled with the fact that he was always doing well in tests and exams.

But as she moved closer to Chuks during the second semester of that session, she saw more of him and was fascinated at his ideals and dreams. Yes, for Chuks had a dream of wonderful proportions. His dream was to become a doctor and then join Doctors without Borders, a non-governmental and highly effective group who go around distressed countries of the world and offer medical services. She could see the gilt in his eyes whenever he spoke of those dreams and she knew that she had a man there.

But then she met Chinedu, her senior in school who was more outspoken and forward. He came across to her as a goal-getter and a strong guy who won’t take a no nor will take nonsense from a lady. Chuks, on the other hand was never interested in her to start with and so she chose Yomi, just to discover that he was a cultist and no only that, but that he was the current capone of the Ravens, going by the name Nightcrawler.

Initially this session, Chuks was still close to her, finding time to gist or talk to her despite his role as class rep. But all of a sudden he withdrew, delegating all the explanations he was giving her as per class work to other nerds, who honestly did not give a shii about her. She needed to speak to Chuks and know what was happening.

She needed him now more than ever.

As she stepped into Fajuyi hall, Chuks dragged her away from the hostel.

“Let’s walk to academics, White house to be exact.”

Smart one from Chuks.
Some guys are just stupid.

Episode 23

“Toke, what have I done?”

“What have you not done, eh Chinedu? What’s it with you? You attacked that poor guy so badly that he has missed weeks of lecture.”

“Is that my fault? Can’t I defend my own? He was coming close to someone’s property, no my own property! How dare he?”

“So that’s why you made sure he visited the hospital, shey? You know in your heart of hearts that I can never have anything to do with him. And he is just one of many examples.”

He held her waist and attempted to draw her to him, forcing her to push back. “I am only defending my own property.”

“So I am now like a house or stock in the stock market you have to protect, eh? ”

“Toke, you know you are much more than that. You are my heart, my love. You know…….”

“Is that a reason for what you are doing? You chase every person that comes near me, as far as he does not plait his hair and wears trousers and walks like a man. All my male friends avoid me, like am an outcast. I can’t even get help for my studies.”

“Toke, you and I know that its not as bad as you are suggesting it.”

“It is that bad and more worse. My class rep told me the whole situation.”

“That weasel!” He swore.

“Listen to yourself.” She started walking away from him fast, leaving him behind for a second before he dragged her back.

“Toke! Toke!! Wait na!” He called back.”Don’t push me away, you know that hurts.”

“Ehen? But you don’t want to know what hurts me abi?”

“See, there is really nothing in all you are……”

“Stop it! Just Stop it! Jesus, I wonder why I am having this conversation!”

“Toke, what do you mean by that?”

“Look, if you can’t trust me when am around any guy, then go find yourself another girl. At least you have been f*cking some.”

“Toke!”

“Don’t Toke me! Or you think I do not hear? Despite all what I hear, I decide to trust you and this is how you pay me? Sending monitoring spirits all over me?”

“Toke, am sorry.” He knelt down.

“Please stand up.” She said looking embarrassed. Some ‘amebos’ were peeping from where they are.

“I won’t stand until you forgive me.”

“Oya, Oya I forgive you. But stand please.”

Chinedu, stood up slowly. It was hard to believe that this romantic fellow was the one called Nightcrawler, feared by many a student.

“But please make my life bearable. Trust me in my dealing with guys. At least not all of them are despicable.”

“Okay. I promise I won’t monitor you again” He reached for a hug. “Oya hug me now.”

Toke, now appeased, give him a full hug, her jugs pressing on his chest. She then smiled and peeked him before hailing a bike.

As soon as she left, he called a number.

“Follow her, make sure nobody is seeing you.”

Meanwhile Chuks was reading with some surprise, the threat that was sent via Korede.

“Guy, you have to do something about this, these guys will not let you live.” Tade advised

Chuks just nodded his head about the place.

“Tade I know that, I really don’t need you telling me that again.”

“How they linked me to you, I could not tell” Korede said.”But they were sure that I will be able to find you. They did as much as threaten me if their message is not sent promptly.”

Chuks raised his head up.”I will find a way around this. But I have to go now.”

“Now? Guy, no start that one, you just land now. Make we gist small.”

“What have we been doing, Korede? Isn’t it gist that we have been gisting?”

“Gist ko ti tan now, I still get gist.”

“About how you have been using your time to be toasting nurses, abi?” Tade said.

“Guy, wetin be your own? Chuks no answer am.”

“Guys, I have to go. Un-like you, Korede, I have responsibilities I can’t delay.” He walked out of the hospital.

***********************

The semester ran quickly, like a 100m race. Not that it guaranteed a speedy session, as the rush, often paid by the not-the-best performance by the students in the exams, is often due to the fear of industrial action, popularly known as strike by the unions in the university. These strikes, often masked by these unions as a fight to improve the learning conditions for the students, often results in some increased remuneration by the government and promises of improved facilities and learning conditions; promises that are never kept. Therefore, the cycle continues, with students suffering the brunt of it.

It was during one of these strikes that the genesis of Chuks death started.

Episode 24

While Korede had learnt from his misfortune that not all ‘food’ must be eaten, Chuks and Toke’s friendship started to grow, though a bit slow at first. This was understandable, considering what had happened in the recent past. However, a dangerous spot in the realm called ‘being friends with a girl’ is when the two parties are often alone a lot of times. The strike afforded Chuks and Toke such opportunity.

Normally, school strikes are a pain in the neck of all students, as the momentum gathered during the semester idents have to abandon their studies. However, one of the privileges of being in the college of Health Sciences is that the lecturers from Part Two onwards were not just lecturers, but doctors and consultants, meaning that their work is mainly in the hospital. This meant that most of the lectures did not take place in the campus area, but some distance from the school in the General Hospital.

This meant that Chuks was not having any break.

So as Tade and Korede packed their bags and made for home, Chuks went for lectures, meaning that he will meet Toke more often.

This bred a lot of unwanted feelings as the friendship blossomed to one that was now crossing lines.

Lines Chuks was not bound to cross.

The strike lasted four months and by the time Tade and co were back, Chuks had not only become a 300 level student(while Tade and co were still in 200) but was now in a more-than-friend relationship with Toke.

Unfortunately, Chinedu did not find that funny.
At first, He did not take it as serious as Toke was always having those ‘days’. However her persistence began to unsettle him and when she almost forced a kiss out of Chuks, he knew what was happening. His cronies were already pushed for an immediate action on Chuks, but he tarried a little.

Patience they say, makes a meal appetizing!

Meanwhile in Fajuyi hall, Tade was watching with disdain and slight bemusement the increased fondness between Chuks and Toke and he did not take it lightly.

“Chuks, am not comfortable with this your relationship with Toke, its getting out of hand.” He protested to Chuks one day.

“Guy, chill out! We are just being friends! Its nothing.”

“Nothing indeed! What about the time she was snuggling up with you during the rain, this time last week? Or the fact that she is having issues with her boyfriend?”

“What has her boyfriend issues got to do with this dicussion? The guy is a self-centered, low-egoed dude!”

“Yet he is the capone of one of the most dangerous cut groups in school” Korede jumped in. “Tade is not the only one bothered about your involvement with this girl.”

“Look, the fact that you publicly toasted the babe does not mean that I will go the same route.”

“What you don’t understand is that your route is a more dangerous path. If a guy has to toast a girl, it means that she is not having anything to lose, but the guy has, therefore he has to do things to impress her. In your case, she has a natural liking for you and its dangerous.Its more dangerous because she will become vulnerable to you and with time, you may become vulnerable to her. If for instance the day rain fell, both of you were alone, do you know what could have happened? Your hormones will have pushed themselves to work, even if you were not thinking of that. Then you may do stuff that you will regret later. Or you may actually be so weak as to ask her out.”

“And she will accept easily, inciting Chinedu and the Ravens against you” Tade added. “You don’t even know what she is thinking at the moment. What if she breaks up with Chinedu?”

“Ehen? What will happen if she does so?” Chuks asked defiantly.

]Tade raised his hands to the heavens, finally accepting defeat in the quest to knock some sense into his roomie.

“What will you do if you were Chinedu,Chuks?”
Korede asked, looking concerned.”You know the kind of power he wields.”

“I will do nothing.”

Tade put his hands in his head, Korede opening his mouth with that ‘ You can lie ooh’ look. Chuks did not bother about any gesticulations from them but decided to leave them alone.

Once outside his room, Chuks walked to the stairs and sat down there, thinking about what they said.

It is not like they were wrong in anyway, in fact he kind of shared their fears, only that he did not want them to feel like some advisers all of a sudden. He knew, much more than Korede knew, about the consequences of pushing the relationship further.

The only problem he had was that he was not sure of what he wanted from the relationship. This left him in a tight spot.

He was not the only person in such a spot.

]Toke dropped her phone on the bed. She had just finished talking to her boyfriend, who had used all the persuasive skills he could muster to make up with her.

She liked him; Chinedu that is. He had this directness in him that she liked, it was easy to know what he wanted. For all his cult activities, he never bullied a lecturer. In fact most of his lecturers don’t know him as a cult member. He had a way with ladies, though he was not a smooth talker, he knew how to get a lady if he wanted. He showed her enough affection without looking like a maga or a dunce. He was sincere with her, at least sincere enough not deny any offence he committed.

But he had this possessive nature about him, always monitoring her about. She never really noticed on her own, it was always her friends that pointed that out. The most recent incident almost generated to chaos as her friend almost raised an alarm, thinking that his spy was going to mob them.

Then his vindictive stint scared her. He had almost driven all her male friends away, including those that helped her with assignments. It was still a miracle that Chuks had not left her.

Chuks himself was another person that she was beginning to like. Initially he was behaving oddly, like a nerd. But as they continued studying together and her grades improved, he lightened up and they started really relating like friends, gisting and going out to places together. He was free and calm, always seemed to know more than she thought he would about, which impressed her.

Of recent their relationship had increased in tempo and latitude, up to the extent that she stole a kiss from him. Of course they both realised that they did something stupid and decided to forget about the incident.

But she can’t and the more she thought of it, the more she began to see Chuks as a husband figure. She would consider it blessed if she had someone like Chuks as a husband. Chinedu was not bad, but definitely was not husband material. She needed someone close by with a legal business that is not scary, not a guy who goes for shady deals every now and then. Chuks really fit the bil and then. Chuks really fit the bill, however she knew that she could not just drop Chinedu.

She suddenly had an idea. Since Chinedu has a few ‘side-chicks’, he won’t mind being a ‘side-guy’. She will keep running the relationship with Chinedu while trying to gwt Chuks to a state that he will commit.

“A girl has to do what she has to do.” She said to herself

Episode 25

]The second semester examination started with pace, carrying everyone’s attention away from other activities and events. Boyfriends abandoned their girlfriends, girlfriends abandoned their boyfriends, social events dried up faster than shallow wells in dry season.

Tade and co were quite engaged throughout the duration of the exams. Unsurprising to say the the least, Chuks and Toke were a bit adrift, despite the fact that their calender differs from the rest. Chuks decided on this so as not to give any unwanted interpretation of his relationship with Toke. Besides Chinedu, some of his course mates had started giving snide remarks about them. He wanted none of that.

Because of the strike, what supposed to be a month’s break was now shortened to three weeks, as the University Management were eager to kick start the new session.

As Tade moved out of his room, he initially wanted to rent an apartment in the town area. Chuks and Made dissuaded him. Also Malik, who had already started working gave his input on the matter.

“Generally, campus is safer” He started. “Most of the cult folks stay in town and they launch attacks on one another there. A few spots in town may be safe but generally town is not too safe. If its itching you that bad, get a place in town and campus. That way you can crash on campus if need be.”

Tade finally decided to get another room in Fajuyi and he got the medical floor again ( it was called medical floor because it was strictly used by medical students years back). Of course, he was not the only person as Chuks, Made and Shittu contributed money to stay with him.

His Part One room mates are back!

Everything seemed to have gone well at this point, Tade and Co were in their third year, Made was already in a political post in his department(P.R.O), Shittu was also doing good and Chuks seemed to have settled some sense into his head by reducing his intensity as pertaining to Toke. All seemed good.

At the flip-side, Toke was trying hard to awaken what she had felt were flames of love from Chuks. She tried personal visits,cooking for him, helping him out in errands, even the ones he did not ask for. Many a student wondered what would drive her to do so much for Chuks. Meanwhile this gestures, rather than make the friendship smoother, was adding rough edges as Chuks was becoming uneasy with all her antics. It all came to an head one morning.

“Toke, what’s the meaning of all this?” Chuks said harshly to her, after for the umpteenth time she had fried some yam and plantain and brought them to him.

“Its for you.” She said, gently placing her hands on him. Chuks instantly slapped those hands away.

“Toke, why are you trying to foment trouble between me and Chinedu? Isn’t our friendship enough?”

“What do you mean by that?” She snarled at him. “Is it because I have taken out time to be good to you, that’s why you insult me? Who do you think you are, compared to me?”

“Toke, that’s secondary. The simple fact is that you are doing things that are meant for Chinedu for me. I understand one or two random dishes and I appreciate that, but this everyday presentation of food is not it. Toke, I can’t and won’t be your boyfriend, simple!”

“Chuks, why are you talking like this? You know my feelings for you, why hurt me?”

“Toke, I do not wish to hurt you but if that’s the only way that I can put it in your head, I will have no choice.”

“I see. So that’s why you have been behaving weird to me eh? Like we were never friends?”

“See, I can’t continue risking a lot because of ‘your’ agenda.”

“My agenda? That’s so wrong, Chuks! Yes, I needed your help in academics but you think that the reason I came so close to you? Chuks, is that what you think?”

“I know your agenda Toke and I am not interested. I don’t want a relationship with you, period! Focus all this attention on Chinedu, he will appreciate it a lot.”

Toke eyes burst into tears. “You can do this, Chuks? You? You!” She walked away.

Chuks looked at her swaying her as5 off and he wondered

Women!

]Meanwhile, Tade was chatting with Shade at the bunker below Covered Pavilion.

“Tade, how far with your babes now?” She asked him. Tade acted surprised and miffed, yet he said nothing.

“Is that the way you will greet me after all this while? Shade, you are not a good friend. We have not seen each other for a whole session and na this question you come ask?”

“But we dey chat for BBM na” Shade said. “Abi that one does not qualify?” Tade shook his head stubbornly.

“Oya sorry, how are you?” She asked. Tade smiled and answered back.

“So how your babes?” She asked with Tade frowning.

“No form for me jare, as if I no see all those babes wey dey follow you for your department.”

“Shade, I hold a position there, as a class rep” Tade replied. “There is no babe anywhere, unless you want to call Wande that.”

“Wande? Wande! Why her, Tade? Wande is a dangerous person.”

“She’s just a friend, Shade. I have had her as a friend for a while and nothing evil has befallen me. In fact there is something I wanted to ask you, Shade but that will be later. How is Lekan?”

Shade pouted, obviously displeased at Tade’s objective of dodging questions. “I and Lekan have broken up.”

“Eh? What happened?”

“Well, we grew apart. That’s all.”

Tade checked his watch. “Shade, I have to go. Need to be in a meeting now.” He picked himself and left before she could ask anything.

]Later that night, a certain meeting took place.

It took place in that familiar shadowy place where agents of evil and death stays and preys in the dark of the night. The only place where his kind of people could have a place to discuss their agenda.

Dangerous agendas

Its in such place that Chinedu gathered his force, the full power and might of the Ravens, for this was an important meeting, a meeting to take positions and undertake important jobs.

The first agenda on the list concerned the elections. The elections, a result of a judicial readjustment, was holing in a few weeks. Of course, his client would have wanted to rig the elections, but considering how that panned out, he wanted a more permanent solution, in case another rigging goes awry. He wanted his opponent dead.

The second was another client who wanted his opponent dead. This client, however was candidate in the SUG elections, whose opponent had hired a rival cult group to protect him and kill the client.

The third case was a dual case; Chuks relationship with Toke came to the spotlight, while another girl had rudely refused the advances of one of them and launched a scathing retort at the whole fraternity.

Two other cases were brought up, both involving assassinations. Chinedu quickly sorted out the business of the day, starting with Chuks and Toke.[

Episode 23

“Toke, what have I done?”

“What have you not done, eh Chinedu? What’s it with you? You attacked that poor guy so badly that he has missed weeks of lecture.”

“Is that my fault? Can’t I defend my own? He was coming close to someone’s property, no my own property! How dare he?”

“So that’s why you made sure he visited the hospital, shey? You know in your heart of hearts that I can never have anything to do with him. And he is just one of many examples.”

He held her waist and attempted to draw her to him, forcing her to push back. “I am only defending my own property.”

“So I am now like a house or stock in the stock market you have to protect, eh? ”

“Toke, you know you are much more than that. You are my heart, my love. You know…….”

“Is that a reason for what you are doing? You chase every person that comes near me, as far as he does not plait his hair and wears trousers and walks like a man. All my male friends avoid me, like am an outcast. I can’t even get help for my studies.”

“Toke, you and I know that its not as bad as you are suggesting it.”

“It is that bad and more worse. My class rep told me the whole situation.”

“That weasel!” He swore.

“Listen to yourself.” She started walking away from him fast, leaving him behind for a second before he dragged her back.

“Toke! Toke!! Wait na!” He called back.”Don’t push me away, you know that hurts.”

“Ehen? But you don’t want to know what hurts me abi?”

“See, there is really nothing in all you are……”

“Stop it! Just Stop it! Jesus, I wonder why I am having this conversation!”

“Toke, what do you mean by that?”

“Look, if you can’t trust me when am around any guy, then go find yourself another girl. At least you have been f*cking some.”

“Toke!”

“Don’t Toke me! Or you think I do not hear? Despite all what I hear, I decide to trust you and this is how you pay me? Sending monitoring spirits all over me?”

“Toke, am sorry.” He knelt down.

“Please stand up.” She said looking embarrassed. Some ‘amebos’ were peeping from where they are.

“I won’t stand until you forgive me.”

“Oya, Oya I forgive you. But stand please.”

Chinedu, stood up slowly. It was hard to believe that this romantic fellow was the one called Nightcrawler, feared by many a student.

“But please make my life bearable. Trust me in my dealing with guys. At least not all of them are despicable.”

“Okay. I promise I won’t monitor you again” He reached for a hug. “Oya hug me now.”

Toke, now appeased, give him a full hug, her jugs pressing on his chest. She then smiled and peeked him before hailing a bike.

As soon as she left, he called a number.

“Follow her, make sure nobody is seeing you.”

Meanwhile Chuks was reading with some surprise, the threat that was sent via Korede.

“Guy, you have to do something about this, these guys will not let you live.” Tade advised

Chuks just nodded his head about the place.

“Tade I know that, I really don’t need you telling me that again.”

“How they linked me to you, I could not tell” Korede said.”But they were sure that I will be able to find you. They did as much as threaten me if their message is not sent promptly.”

Chuks raised his head up.”I will find a way around this. But I have to go now.”

“Now? Guy, no start that one, you just land now. Make we gist small.”

“What have we been doing, Korede? Isn’t it gist that we have been gisting?”

“Gist ko ti tan now, I still get gist.”

“About how you have been using your time to be toasting nurses, abi?” Tade said.

“Guy, wetin be your own? Chuks no answer am.”

“Guys, I have to go. Un-like you, Korede, I have responsibilities I can’t delay.” He walked out of the hospital.

***********************

The semester ran quickly, like a 100m race. Not that it guaranteed a speedy session, as the rush, often paid by the not-the-best performance by the students in the exams, is often due to the fear of industrial action, popularly known as strike by the unions in the university. These strikes, often masked by these unions as a fight to improve the learning conditions for the students, often results in some increased remuneration by the government and promises of improved facilities and learning conditions; promises that are never kept. Therefore, the cycle continues, with students suffering the brunt of it.

It was during one of these strikes that the genesis of Chuks death started.
