drinks. Looking at him with disgust she asked.

Finally Ezinne smiled.
After she had served us, she left to attend to other peeps I
looked at Bayo with a stick of Benson in his hand and complete
sports on his left.
Me: Tell me everything, don't lie to me.
Bayo: what I will tell you now….will change everything.
Bayo: first I want to apologise. Secondly you must understand
that I had no choice.
Me: Just go on.
Bayo: you were hit on purpose. You were running away from
some people chasing you. They caught up with you in Festac,
and hit your car from behind. You have something that doesn’t
belong to you.
You were in a place you weren't suppose to be.
nobody knew how you got there but you were there and you stole
What you stole was also stolen from someone prior to you.
Alhaji, my boss works for people interested in what you stole.
After the crash, You car was searched…nothing was found. Its
still a puzzle. Leaving you in the hospital was too risky,
especially as it was clear you were impaired.
Me: how are you involved?
Bayo: Alhaji was told to hold on to you till you woke up and say
where you kept it. So he told me and Shade to hold on to you.
Me: kept what?
Bayo: I don't know…
Me: and after I remember?
Bayo: make we no think negative.
Me: will you be the one to kill me?
Bayo: I cant kill you
Me: who are the others after me?
Bayo: they are Lebanese. They are after you and Alhaji’s people.
Me: so what happens next?
Bayo: you cant tell anybody what I just said. The moment they
find out..I am dead.
The phone in my pocket rang..
Cynthia: Mr X guess what?
Me: what dear?
Cynthia: I was fired just now…no explanation given.
Me: wow…I am sorry, can I come and see you?.I am so sorry.
Cynthia: haven’t you done enough, is it until I am killed? Please I
don't want to see you ever again!
Me: I am so sorry…if there is any….
…she hung up…
Bayo: who is that?
Me: Cynthia. .the nurse…she has been fired.
Bayo: I reported that you slept in her house last night. Shortly
after you called…
Me: You are a bastard you know?
Bayo: yes…I indeed am..
My right hand struck the his right eye brow before he could
The punch was so hard I felt my knuckles hurt. I expected a
retaliation or something
Bayo placed his hand on the already swelling mass..
Bayo: what will you tell Shade happened to her handsome bobo
now?…ehn…?..lets just say a female passenger hit me…she no
go believe say na man.
