A guy wants to live a peaceful life but the tragedy and events of the past keeps nailing him down,now he is afraid to face the future.
What are those events?How is he going to face the future?
A rooster crowed,announcing the start of a new day in Abule-Oroko. On the small,but clean veranda,sat Adigun looking dejected,looking out over the dark. He was waiting with the hope that a new day would bring; Sadness,hapiness He just didn't know,but he hoped for the best. Would it bring all the memories of the past Would it bring him bad or goodluck Anyway,he concluded that he had a full day of life ahead. He stood up and walked into the house,picked a broom and started sweeping.
Adigun was born into a family of farmers. He was the 2nd child. His father believed there was nothing to gain in schooling,so Adigun resolved to farming.
His father was a strict and mean man always trying to show to the public that he was a disciplinarian. He loved farming so much that he made sure he gave birth to as many children he was capable of to help in his farming business. He had 20children from 9wives. He always emphasize on the fact that "the more children you have,the more wealthy you are". So at the age of 6, Adigun had started following his father to the farm,at the age of 19,Adigun had become a master in farming. He could toil the soil better than anyone in the village to the envy of his mates.
Although,Adigun was an illiterate,he determined that his children will be educated.
Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! Kemi moaned under my weight.
You like that? I asked breathing heavily.
Hmm,I love you;She whispered as she kissed me.
I love you too; I said as i meditate on how I met her.
I met her during one of my friend's(Femi popularly known as FM)birthday anniversary. Initially, I have resolved not to go to the birthday party,'coz i had been sick for 2days but changed my mind when Kolade came visiting me in the afternoon of that day convincing me to go to the birthday anniversary.
Oh boy! Wetin dey happen,shey u no know sey Femi dey do im birthday today? Kolade said as he "jammed" inside my room without knocking.
I no dey go jare, I'm having this severe headache and it is killing me.
Oh boy! Why u no tell me? Shey u don take drugs sha? He asked.
But how u wan do am? Femi get birthday nau,you have to go.
I can't, I will call him in the afternoon; I said as I stood up to drink.
Haha! Y u dey do like this nau? Fm won't like the idea,try and pull yourself together,infact who knows you might get a gal there;Kola said.
Stop teasing me,I'm not interested in girls for now,especially Nigerian girls.
Na Naija girls dey sweet pass,just lie to them and they would end up in your bed that night; Kola said laughing.
I'm going to give it a thought, I said looking rather bored.

nairaman: Suspense! Anyway, I await the details of this piece of art you've got coming.Okay boss,I promise not to disappoint you,it is gonna be a thriller.
I got to Femi's house for the party at about 6.00.p.m., I wanted to go in the afternoon to help but couldn't so I called Fm to inform him that I wouldn't be able to make it there because of my headache.
The party was about to commence when I arrived. The MC was already on stage about to announce the commencement of the party. The atmosphere was already charging and the booze was already getting hard.
Hey! I heard a voice.
It was Joel my friend,he was waving to me.
What's up,I said as I walked up to him.
Toyboy! Badoo! Wetin dey happen? Joel shouted on top of his voice as I found myself a seat.
Nothing much jare,I just dey ni,lowkey things, I replied.
E don tey wey I don see you oh.
Abi nau,man go chop,wetin man wan do,abi wetin u talk?
Na true talk,Joel said.
Where is Fm? I asked.
Don't know,he should around.
I initially came to the party not because I took Kola's advice about getting a babe but because I felt it wouldn't be nice if I didn't attend the party especially since it is one of my friend's birthday party.
I looked around and I saw couple of girls gisting around a corner and I thought about my last girlfriend. She was a total disaster,a jerk. We quarrel almost all the time,we disagree on almost everything,until I broke up with her. Since then I determined I was never going to have anything emotional with Naija girls again.
I stood up,walked towards Femi to greet him,he was already on the celebrant's chair and he ushered me to sit beside him.
As the party was going on,I found myself thinking about my former girlfriend,she was like a virus in a computer system,she almost squeezed the h3ll out of my life,she never gave me space,never gave me peace of mind,she made life so miserable for me,when I got tired of her,I had no other option than to break up with her.
I was still thinking when I realised that the .M.C. has called for the cutting of the cake,I went forward with Fm and a couple of friends to cut the cake. We finished cutting the cake,went back to our seat until the .M.C. called for the .D.J. to perform.
As the .D.J. was performing,I watched as few people stood up to dance,at first,it was Femi who led the dance before others joined him.
I was about to stand up when someone tapped my shoulder.
Hey! Toyboybaba,how are you?
What's up Kolade?
I have searched around looking for you,where have you been?
I was with Fm throughout, I should be the one asking you that question.
SFML! He said blinking his left eye.
SFML is a slang/code,my friends use,it means Searching For My Lover,we do use it to refer to someone who has been searching for a girl to flirt with.
Oh! You be bad boy, I shouted as I shook his hand violently.
Abi, I want you to meet my new catch,my newest and cutest babes.
Inside the house, Kola said pulling me inside the house.
Meet Taiwo, Kola said as we got inside.
I'm Tunde and what a sweet name you've gat, I said shaking her right hand
Thank you, She said.
And this is her friend,Kemishola, Kola said pointing at the second girl who sat down quietly beside Taiwo.
Oh,nice to meet you.
We sat down together,gisted before Kola & Taiwo stood up and went outside leaving Kemi and I together
