Lady: are you blind?! I tap Biggy’s shoulder

Biggy: I don tire for the church sef.
Pastor: choir sing a song he walk down from the pulpit We were on our way after we exit the church compound, when Biggy started looking at me suspiciously.

Me: how manage, why the usher no disturb you?
Biggy: I go tell you, but put leg for ground. I wan crash.
Me: i been dey put leg for water? Go crash with that mad woman na he hissed We half-ran pass a smelling heaped dust bin by a plantation, were a madwoman was making funny moves.
We turned into a street with beaming street lights and Isighted three guys smoking from afar.
Me: those guys na thief oh.
Biggy: wetin we go do?
Me: act like madmen he touched my head with his palm
Biggy: you no well.
Biggy started staggering towards the guys that have starts walking towards us, he acted like a drunkard making funny moves and noise.
I followed him praying the stupid idea works.
Biggy: there are three little black bird sitting on the wall he sing drunkenly
Me: nwanye peter, nwayne paul, nwanye peter paul. singing
Biggy: am seeing five thousand soldiers coming he starts counting the guys coming repeatedly
Me: fire!! Fire!!! I lie on the ground pointing imaginary guns, shooting with my mouth Three of them looked at us in pity, they shaked their heads and walked pass us, to an extent.
Biggy: take cover!! take cover!!! running
Me: deploy plan two running Probably they looked behind them and saw that we ran like people who has not tasted a bottle of beer.
Voice 1: stop there!! running towards us
Voice: we will blow your head you get gun na em you never rob bank?
We ran with speed, i wondered where Biggy got the speed from.
The way he was running, you will think he is not chubby at all.
We ran without looking back until we entered inside myroom and locked the door.
Me: you for challenge for olympic medal breathing heavily
Biggy: i no wan die young breathing heavily
We slept like that without pulling those clothes we wore to the strange Church, the next morning Biggy was still sleeping.
I checked time and it was 10am since is Sunday.
The youths of the area hardly go to Church even if we recorded the highest crusade and evangelism in the State. Still, they refuse going to Church.
I wore my jersey and went to the field, when i got there they have already started long before I came.
Kelly: idiot!! Pass ball, you go commot oh.
Boy1: wetin be your problem sef Kelly got the ball and shot him, he is on Kelly side Kelly is one of those guys in the area that claims to be a cultist and stubborn, he ran towards the boy and slapped him.
Boy1: Kelly wetin I do you na!! yelling

Voices: leave am na, kelly the boy no be your mate na, ona wan spoil the ball.
Kelly: commot, you no sabi play ball. You come field, Vikolo you wan play ball? no, i come watch ona
Me: i wan play i enter the field
Kelly: the people wey wear clothes na our men, play defence.
We were four aside, as we kick the ball about.
Locally called monkey post, a tyre on each marked end of the field that serves as goal post.
Kelly: ona dey shoot, when i go start now…
Obi: you sabi complain i swear. I played the ball to Kelly
Me: oboy pass the ball na he kick the ball violently and the ball float in the air, and touch Small
Me: you have kill yourself chuckling Small is a high rank cultist in the ruling cult of the area,they operate like political party and they are the government that keeps the peace of the area. I wonder how he came back from prison, after i learnt some weeks ago he was taken to jail.
His weed dropped to the ground, he quickly brought outa gun and a knife, he t----t the knife inside the ball.
He entered the field looking very angry.
Small: who be that blind person wey no see say, Small dey pass? everyone point at Kelly
Kelly has started crying and tears flooding his cheeks already, you have not seen anything.
Small: Vic!! how far na? Chichi dey fine you. the devil is a liar!
