Me: bros abeg can you borrow me 20k, I need it for something important
Bros: oz what do you need that kind money for and what’s the something you want to use it for?
Me: bros Na school project and it’s coming up next week, I done find tire but nobody answer me, abeg I go start work next month when I gather the money I will pay you.
Bros: hnmmm oz you called at the wrong time honestly, I just went today to pay 150k for my children school fees, before I can have 20k again is till month end, am sorry kid bro try and wait till then.
Me: okay bros, thank you sir, everywhere good.
I cut the call with my elder brother, he said that he doesn’t have money now, I called my sister and she said the same thing, that she don’t have, who do I now call to help me? I need to act fast, am in deep soup.
I waited in one bar till midnight before I go home because I don’t want them to track me to Frank house, but this one Frank is so scared so is it not better I let him go, I can’t put trouble in his house too now that they have seen his face, oh God what do I do?
I don’t know what to do, even the work I didn’t see, do I run away from Aba? What about my school? What will I tell my parents? If they can track me down to Aba that means they can track me anywhere anytime, they are rugged and the best way to solve this issue is to pay them the money gently, but where’s the money?
I slept in one store in store, I make sure to hide so that securities will not see me, I didn’t mind the cold or the mosquito, all my mind is in that money and how to get it, oh God.
In the morning around 5am and started wandering around Aba, ariaria area, then something struck me, why not go to St Michael’s and sell my phone, at least I will get buyers there quickly.
I check my wallet I still have small changes in there, I took a Keke to living world, i stop at Rhema university, from there I took Keke to St Michael’s in main park, everywhere is filled up, I went to where they sell and buy phone, so many guys calling me and asking me if I want to buy or sell phone, I told them I wanna sell phone, they started pricing phone of 30k 10k, I know that’s what they will do, they will like to buy phone cheap here and sell very costly, it’s not fair.
I didn’t have a choice I need to sell it anyway, one buyer price it 12k and I agreed, so I removed my son and memory card and gave him the phone, he gave me the money, I return to tonimas and saw Frank parking his load,.
Me: Frank where you they go.
Frank: am going to stay with Victor for the time being, I have a feeling they can come here anytime.
Me: am so sorry bro, I have sold my phone and I have 12k now.
Frank: you sell the phone 12k? Phone of 30k?
Me: I no get choice Na
Frank: chai, how will you get the remaining one now, and how will you contact him since you sold your phone?
Me: I still have one useless Nokia touchlight in my bag, it can still receive calls.
Frank: okay, when you are through you locked the door and keep the key for the normal area, I won’t be coming back for now till the coast is clear.
Me: okay bro.
He left me alone and then I search my bag and brought out the small phone, I put my sim card waiting for his calls, but I know he won’t accept this 12k, how will I get the remaining one now?
I came out from tonimas road in the night and started watching people going about their thing, I stay around till 10pm in the night, when everywhere was quiet, I saw a lady came down from one infinix jeep, she walked inside the tonimas road with her expensive handbag, I started following her gently, I took my phone and started doing like am making call, when I get close to her without expecting I snatch the bag, she drew it bag and started shouting, I slapped her, a very nice slap and then she let go, she was shouting ” thief oh, thief oh, please help oh” aboki men selling Suya in that junction started chasing, oh boy I done enter more trouble.
