S2 W5. These are my....

Curiosity kills the cat.

That was all that was on my mind as I parked my car and walked into Stanley's, eyes searching for A-hole. Unfortunately, he is a good looking brother. And he dresses sharp. And my eyes by default spot people like this in a heart beat. So. He wasn't hard to find.

I walked up to him.

"I took the liberty of ordering you a brownie and hot chocolate"

Damn him for being acquainted with a best friend of mine, consequently knowing my weaknesses. I mumbled a thank you. That didn't stop me though from saying a quick  sanctification prayer.... lest we forget we are sitting across from cult boy o. Plus God minus satan. I dove in.

"So....." I finally looked up to take a good look at him. He looked worn out. He had coarse but FULL African kind of hair, so I could tell he had ran his hands a couple of times over it cause of how rough it looked. It wasn't a bad look.Come to think of it.....

"Yea...by the way thanks for showing up." He rubbed his hands against his pants like he was nervous or something. "I was thinking I was going to have to give your food to charity."

Small talk. Small talk. No time. "Toba, what is going on?" meaning. Tell me EVERYTHING. From second ONE! Now!

He didn't waste time. Sharp boy. "I was initiated into my dad's secret society when I was 15." He paused for effect. Like this was news to me...

"Er...I know...." Me maa I flexed small muscle and continued eating my brownie like this was stale gist, WHICH it was. If he was surprised he masked it well.

"I figured....." He gave me a suspicious look "Who told you?"

"Does it matter....? Just sha understand some of us know you're not....." I refused to finish my sentence.

He just smiled at the silent insult and continued. "Anyways...I wasn't really sure what was going on, but all I knew is, apparently I was becoming a man, and this was how the process was. Shocking, Painful, but VERY fruitful." he paused. "In the short term that is. I went to UniLag...got accepted for Business Admin. Well... I kind of paid my way into school, but that's little details. " So the point of all this information is......?? As if he heard my thoughts. "Point is that, I probably wasn't supposed to be in school, but Money paired with the fact I was a legit and the youngest member of Olode* (Read S1, W4 for more) which is the name  of the..."


"Again... all this is fluff gist..."

"Oh." He sat back again.

"Ok let me help you here in telling me what I DON'T know." I had demolished the brownie and was energized now. "Toba, why is Suni's getting rid of this baby SO important to you?"

He took a deep breath and rubbed his hands through his hard and over his face. Yes Toba this is a freaking interrogation.

"The baby is my first seed." he said the last part with animated quotations. "Technically, my first seed is for Olode. This is my payment for the security, wealth, good health blah blah that has been given to me for the last 15 years and is meant to secure the same for the next ..... however long.  The deal was... my first seed  or me."

"But........ are you STILL a cultist?"

"No...."

"Then....?"

"Yale, its a bit more complicated than that. I cannot just opt out of a cult. Out of THIS cult. I'm going to either have to give Suni up.... because she is the closest person to me. Or......they take her any ways... along with the baby because I broke the deal."

"I thought you said it was baby or you... how does Suni now become  collateral for your stupidity now?"

"Suni is the love of my life Yale.... " He said it like D'uhhh...He waited for that to marinate for a bit....It was..... but I still had questions

"Ok....how does killing the baby solve your problem. The way your talking this your group knows how to getchu...."

"If the baby dies BEFOOREE it is due.... Then all I have to do is give up all my wealth. I mean EVERYTHING. And they make me..... sterile." It was like he choked on the word.


Ah Ah.. this thing wasn't joining well in my head.

"The baby is not dying Toba. You're MURDERING it. I'm sure your devil friends would know the difference"


"Not even Yale.....not even." He sat forward again like he was about to make his selling pitch. "Yale, the riches, the wealth mean NOTHING ...-"

"And your future "children"".. I used my eyes to point at his crotch.

"Well..... I would give that up to save Suni.." He looked me directly in  the eye... and I... I believed him. For that moment. "Yale if she keeps this baby, they will take the baby AND her. I am 100% and MORE sure of that. They would want to get back at me for playing them.. these guys are blood thirsty, before they finish me off, they will make sure I suffer..... Suni is the only way they can make me suffer." This wasn't making sense, but it was making sense at the same time.

"So you want to kill baby so you and Suni can live.....?"

"And be free from this nonsense."

"They won't bother you after that?"

"After I say what happened to the baby, I'd give up everything I have and go back for cleansing - "

"Cleansing?"

"Taking of my sperm Yale."

"Oh." He shook his head like I was dumb. Well Sorry I'm not with the latest cult terms!!!

"....and we will be done with all that." He sat back. again.....and ran his hands over his face and hair.

"So why tell me all this?"

"So you can understand the danger Suni is in if she keeps the baby and maybe.... you can convince her other wise."

"So you want me to go back and tell my best friend to KILL her FIRST baby because her boyfriend was STUPID enough to join a cult and now has put her in danger ? So to appease the angered cult leaders we have to literally RUIN her life?" after I stated it like that it seemed so STUPID. "You are on drugs Toba." I finished my hot chocolate. "Cheap CHEAP ones." I looked around for my bag.

"Wait Yale..."

"Wait for WHAT? You must be fucking kidding me. Like seriously Toba. What kind of selfishness is that?"


"And your being unselfish by not even AT LEAST trying to save Suni?" Oh.... Oh.... he was going to play dirty like that. "Do you believe what Ive told you?"

"Quite frankly no. I think its a pack of shit."

"So you're waiting until she disappears or turns up dead before you get it?"

"SHUTTUP Toba!"

"No.... seriously. You've come here Im quite sure with a preconceived idea that Ive come to lie to you or makeup fairy tales, so you wrote me off already. I love Suni, Yale.... I don't know about you"

"I love Suni!-"

"Then tell her....convince her."

I let out a frustrated sigh. This boy....... THIS BOY...!

"How do you intend on "staging" this murder.... " because that sounded VERY sketchy to the random eavesdropper I added "of an abortion."

"Leave that to me. But just convince Suni, Yale... make her listen to me..... Please.... I ... I need her to be safe. Not to be dragged into this."

"Well you've already done the opposite of all that genius." I looked around for my bag. Picked it up. "thanks for the snacks" I stood up. "I'll tell her everything you've said, not because I believe you or I think you're right, but because I'm scared stiff for her saftey. "

He stood up too "Thank-"


"Wait o..... understand NOW!!" I held my ear to emphasize that he listen CAREFULLY."  am NOT going to try to convince her to do anything as absurd and as heartless as killing her own child. You hear?" he didn't answer me. "Toba Anuti do you understand?"


"Sure."

"If she calls you back lucky you. If she doesn't................." I don't even know.... "I don't know. But please.... dont contact me again. I'm not up for spooky stories every-time I hear from you. Seriously Toba. Please leave me alone. I want to live to see my grand children. Ehn? Please...." I put on my jacket. All the while he watched me not saying anything. He looked....frustrated. I had some balls insulting this guy like this o, image he just changed me to yam now. Ah...its time to go o. I finished buttoning up my coat. I gave a fake smile. "Take care."

I walked out. The hairs on the back of my neck standing from the RUBBISH he had just told me and because something was just not joining with this whole tales by moonlight ish.  Plus I know the creep was watching me.

S2 W8. Ignorance is Bliss

Always talking! Ronke can NOT shuttup. Lai lai. She was on her phone when she entered the office.....without knocking! Might I add. She froze for a split second when she saw me. Like she was surprised.
“E ye o! Yale since when??”
“I should as you the same question.” She was holding a Swiss Chalet take out bag in her hand. What the… “I see you brought lunch…” I eyed the bag.
She held it up “Yaaaa…..” then dropped it again “Seems like I’ll be eating alone.”
I did NOT appreciate the way this conversation sounded. I felt I was sharing my man. I don’t know. This was just not rubbing me the right way. “Mhmn…” Or maybe I was just being paranoid. Ronke, loud mouth as she is, is still a sweetheart…………………………
Shafa coughed and stood up. “Ronke what’s really good? This is a pleasant surprise.” He pointed to the couch on the other side of the office. He walked to my side and sat on the table beside me.
She smiled to herself, like she understood something and it was funny. “I was just in the hood o, you…

S2. W19 - We need to Talk

I had booked marked 1 page so far. And that was because I felt I was being too picky. It was called Adonai. I almost didn't find it as it wasn't on the first few pages of the google search term, but somehow for some odd reason I had clicked through 5 ages of google results and somehow Adonai had jumped at me. I loved their slogan. "When there's no where else to go" It was simple but strong. Their website was very simple but I could tell it was professionally done. It wasn't a random person with no experience whatsoever in web design that decided to piece together a site, this was well thought out. Their choice of words, their images...Very marketable.
So far with everything I had read, I was impressed. Felt almost as though there were talking to me specifically. So I had bookmarked it. I was going to marinate on this a bit longer. I needed to anyways. 
My bladder started complaining again. These two creatures wont kill me o! Every time they wan wee wee.  I put m…

S2. W21 Where do we go from here?

Life is the number one entertainer of all times. I have to give it a round of applause. I don't know how long I have been lying down here. Probably day 3 now I estimate. I haven't looked at my phone but I know its been ringing. Shafa....probably Suni... I wont be surprised to see Ronke's name on that list. Bitch. I turned my face away from the ceiling back to the wall. I had deduced a pattern sequence in my red wall. I could find it again. My phone vibrated again.
What I can't really understand is....why this is breaking my heart so much. I mean. Shafa doesn't have iron running through his veins. His a human being. And like a human being... he's wired to mess up. I'm laying here. I've cried out all my insides. Ive not eaten. I've not showered. I'm putting my life on pause because of something that was....is...inevitable.
But man....it hurts. It really does.
Life MUST  go on. Its getting back up that matter right? OK now. I'll get up. And get o…
