“As you cansee, sir,” Cole began, pointing at the computer which was on to the desktop screen, “the screen is now blank. The reason is because I just finished organising the telephone directory you told me to create for you, if you can still remember.”
Tobi smiled knowingly. “Ahn-ahn, I can remember, now. Shebi you mean the same one I told you to organise three weeks ago that you completed on the same day. Yes Cole, I still remember.”

The whole room erupted in laughter. Efe who was standing behind him as she always preferred to do whenever they were in Homicide, laughed so hard that Tobi wondered if she would drop the tablet in her hand. The room was soundproof, but some outside in the main hall still stared inquisitively through the glass walls. Even Cole managed a nervous smile.

“Oh, so it’s funny now, isn’t it?”
The laughter died all at once.
“I caught you using social media on Monday morning and all you can do is laugh?” Some of the junior detectives smiled openly at his worse luck.

“Oh, and it’s funny to you people,” he said pointing at all of them. Their smiles disappeared as quickly as they had come. “All of you were sleeping when your mates were working, only for you to come here and laugh over something as stupid as this? Get out, all of you. Out, out, out!”

Many of them bumped into each other in their haste to put as much distance as possible between themselves and the room.

“All of you will meet with the juniors outside and take enough paperwork off their hands to last you half of today, and be fast about it,” he called after them. “That excludes the three of you. Get back to work,” he said to Kunle, Danladi and Ngozi.

The room’s occupants were down to just Tobi, Efe and Cole, who looked at Tobi expectantly.

“Yes, go with them. Didn’t you go to police academy? Or is it because you don’t wear police uniform?”
Cole’s mouth opened and closed, but he didn’t say anything. He looked at Efe. Tobi scoffed. If this guy really thought his assistant could help him here, then he was a really big fool.

He walked out too, dejected.He should even be thanking his God that I only gave him small punishment. All of them.Cole had left the door open, and when a cheer went up in the main hall they heard it loud and clear. The officers there were getting themselves rid of scary looking bundles of paper, enough to last a whole day per person.It’s still the same thing.

“You really surprised them today.” Efe walked around the wheelchair to his front.
“And isn’t it about time? God knows I’ve spoiled that Cole. He now thinks that because he can press computer more than anybody in the department, he can do whatever he likes. If he wants to learn the hard way, it’s fine with me. Take me to the main hall, please, I need to kickstart my system.”

He picked his customized LIPD mug off the table and she wheeled him out. They were on the outside of the cubicle offices, so the only officers to see were the ones walking about. The coffee table was just outside Homicide. Tobi had been watching it when they were inside.

“Nice day, eh, Tobi?”
Tobi looked up. Mr Clyde was at the coffee table as well, plastic cup in hand.
“Mr Clyde, it’s good to see you.”
“Good morning, sir.”
“Yes, good morning to you two.” He picked the big glass pot and filled his cup from it. Then he handed it to Efe, replaced the lid of his cup and lifted it to his lips.

“There’s creamer in the drawer, you don’t have to take it like that,” Tobi told him as Efe filled his mug. Mr Clyde held the cup at eye level and turned it in his fingers.
“I prefer a brew of French dark roast, but in the absence of one, plain black will do.”
Tobi shrugged. “It’s your choice, then. I can’t drink it black like that.”
