ran like Usain bolt while the zenda boys ran like they had ferrari tyres on their legs.
When i put gear 2 they were already on gear 4, i quickly negotiated the bend to my house and flew the low fence and poosh i landed into the gutter.
I laid still as i could and i could hear their voices cursing breathlessly and swearing under their breath.
They later left and i got out of the gutter with my fine xmas clothes looking like that of a roadside mechanic.
Atleast i was not caught and i promised my self never to throw knockouts again.
When i got inside i was use as a laughing stock and i told them i tripped and entered a gutter.
I change and went outside to meet some of my fellow knockout throwers who share their stories.
We were standing near an overhead tank that was laid on it side on the ground.
“Na which of una fit fly this tank” umbgede, an idoma boy asked us.
He ran first and jumped the tank while we all hailed him and some others boys also jumped.
I saw mercy coming from far looking radiant as usual. I did not want her to see me as a weakling so i shouted her name for her to look at me.
“Chai my eye don break o” i screamed while turning on the ground, i had ran back and jumped but i was not paying my full attention because i was checking out mercy.
I had landed on my forehead and i grew a huge ball of meat on my right eye brow.
My day could never get better, or so i tot. I went home admist laugh from every one around and even my siblings laughed at me saying that Santa Claus had just deposited a gift in my eyes.
The school started and we all resumed with our diferent tales of christmas and new year.
We met old and new class mates and new pals. Uncle sunny came to our class as usual without no cane or koboko, he said his new year resolution was never to bring cane to class again.
We all were glad, thinking that he had done a great thing and we wished him luck in his commitement until a boy spoiled the whole show.
A big boy in our class who we called danladi, a person that would have been fathering 5 children opened his rotten mouth and said.
“Sir that means i would start following girls again”
“What did you just say now” uncle sunny turned and look at him. The foolish goat still repeated what he said and he was asked to come knee down outside.
We were expecting uncle sunny to maybe bring out his belt and flog the boy but we were wrong. Uncle sunny never kept any resolution.
To our suprise he rolled one hand of his long sleeves shirt and brought out a freshly plucked cane that could make a brother run for his life.
He trashed the big dude till the boy started shedding all his holidays tears and all the calories in his body were dried up.
He went back to his seat while holding and scratching his ass like a rat stealing tins.
I had settled down in school and i remembered that a useless prefect called Jacob was on my wanted list so i started thinking on the best of ideas to punis
h him back then.
An idea that came quickly.
