Midnight Stories – Untruth ( Episode 10)


A second look at the text message made it obvious Miss Williams didn’t type that text message. The shorthand was never her style.
Her words were always in full .. ‘ 2 for to ‘ ‘ U for you ‘ . This is def not from Sandra Williams. The question is who was it ? I replied anyway.
.
” I am traveling at the moment , why ? “
.
Her reply : We need 2 see. I am leaving the country soon. I want 2 give u a little compensation .
.
” Why can’t you just send it to my account like the usual way ? “
.
Her reply : No , I don’t want 2 do it that way. I want to see u and talk before I go
_
Apparently whoever it was is way stupid. It was too obvious really. This was definitely Michael. The text msgs kept hammering on meeting up. But is he this stupid ? Why would he think I wont know Miss Williams is dead ? Well , I replied
_
” Fuck you Michael! You spose dey with Maurice as e dey fucked up right now “
” Na how you go murd me you dey find “
“God go punish you! MotherFucker ! “
_
I got no reply from ” Miss Williams ” again. So I called Maurice. He picked up.
.
Me : Nigga , God go punish your brother! What the fuck did I do to deserve death ? He brought goons to my hostel man! Na small e remain , them for nab me.
.
Maurice : ( Whispering ) Guy , shut up ! I no tell you before say them dey come for your head ? No be that one be problem right now sef . Po-po don hold Williams phone. They been text me dey ask me where I dey. But I be street , I no fi chop that kyn format.
.
Me : Police is with Miss Williams phone ? Ah , wtf! No wonder. I think say na Michael dey message me.
.
Maurice : No be Mikey! When you no jah , How you go take know? ! . Make I warn you , dislocate from Lag now now now! And if you do like jew and Popo nab you , if you drop my name – I go drop your life. Na standard truth be that !

.
Maurice : I still dey hospital. I don call Mikey make e come carry me comot here. I dey go Abj. And Matty ,Comot the sims whey dey your phone . Break them asap!
.
Me : Ok now .
.
Maurice : We go see when we see.
_
So the police knows about this . Oh God ! They have probably checked her alerts too and have seen my full name so they know exactly who I am. I am in trouble.
.
God , I need Christy right now. I really do. And I also need to know what’s up from that side . So I dialed her no. She picked up
_
Christy : Why are you calling me ?
.
Me : Babe , I’m sorry ok ?
.
Christy : I can’t do this with you right now. I can never forgive you either. My cousin is damaged , really damaged . So don’t tell me sorry , it’s not a fixable situation!
.
Me : Babe , I didn’t do anything to your cousin . Infact , I tried to save her. I swear on it.
.
Christy : See Matt , it doesn’t really matter what you say now. You are evil itself and as much as I loved you , I don’t think I can bear being with such a person
.
Me : Why are you doing this Christy ? I did it for us. You are not a saint either. You fucked Segun and I am ready to forgive you. I need you right now. I feel so alone.
.
Christy : Don’t even use that against me! They are not comparable. I cheated on you once and I was sorry for it but you are a paedophile that gets paid. You are worse than the devil!
.
Me : Ok Ok ! Please stop. I get how you feel. But hope you’ve not told them anything over there.
.
Christy : Oh really ? That’s why you called? To know if I ratted you out ?
.
Me : No no babe . I called cause I need you.
.
Christy : Yeah right. Save me the bullshit. I didn’t say anything to them. But Its best you find a way out of Lagos asap. Segun has been arrested.
.
Me : What!!! And you didn’t tell me or call to warn me. I am his roommate remember?
.
Christy : I didn’t even know Segun was involved in your crap.
.
Me : Baby , I am so sorry for all of this. I just wanted to make us more comfortable and all.
.
Christy : ( Teary voice ) Matthew , you didn’t do it for us. You did it for you! I love you and you know it. I know you have potential and that made me stay with you. Did I ever ask you for anything but your love ? I hate you so much right now!
.
Me : Baby , please forgive me. I will make this right. Please
.
Christy : ( Now crying )You Dont get it ! There is no making things right. You are now a fugitive. A wanted criminal. Why did you do it Matthew ? !!!
.
Me : Christiana. I am sorry. I know I know I have fucked up. I have to leave for a while but I still wana be with you. Can I see you one last time before going ?
.
Christy : ( Still crying ) Gosh , why is all this happening ?
.
Me : Please decide now. Can you see me quickly? I need to see you Christy.
.
Christy : ( Teary voice ) Where ?
.
Me : Can you make it to Oshodi real quick ?
.
Christy : I will try.
.
Me : I love you so much .
.
Crhisty : (Low tone ) I love you too.
_
_
So I made my way to Oshodi to wait on Christy. Maurice asked me to pull out my sims but I still needed them to stay in contact with Christy. Lord knows I really love this girl. After 40 minutes of waiting ,Christy called me . I went to where she was to meet her and we’ve never hugged so passionately. “Baby , I’m sorry ” I mumbled as I held onto her tightly. Suddenly , I saw a police officer coming behind Christy. I could see intent in his stare. I pushed Christy to the side , turned and tried to make a run for it. As I turned , there was another coming. Left and right too. That was when I realized I was surrounded.
_
I asked Christy ” Why did you do this to me ?” . But she looked as shocked as I was. She mumbled ” I dont …. Know . I didn’t tell anyone I was coming. I swear it babe ” . Well , there was no point running. Guns were pointed at me already. I went on my knees as one of the policemen started in a konk Igbo accent ” You are under arrest Idiot! You think say you smart. But na woman go kill you ” ” Rapist , Woman wrapper! ” Anything you say will be used against you in the court of law. Basterd. ” ” Do your hand well make I handcuff you!!”
_
It was over at this point. What would my Mother say ? I am such a disappointment. Christy just stood there crying. I thought of how I’ve disappointed my family and friends at home. Everything I did that led to this point. I was severely rough handled by the policemen right in the middle of Oshodi garage. I was being slapped , dragged and beaten like a fugitive. Oh , I am actually a fugitive. I was bundled into the policecar and they made their way to the station.
_
To my Surprise , Maurice was there too. Michael and his boys , Segun was also present. Wtf! No one escaped ? The police treated us like animals. I was placed in a cell with 12 others. Sweat , faeces and spoilt food laced the cell. I puked! And I was beaten by my cellmates for being disgusting.
_
The next two days was hell. More than hell. I was brought out to see my Mother on the third day. She’d come to get bail but was denied. When I stepped into the Dpo’s office , almost stark naked and swollen all over , my mother just busted into tears. I didn’t even know what to say. She just kept on crying. The Dpo then said ” Madam , you requested to see your son. You have seen him now . Sergeant , please take him away ” . I was taken away as my mother watched.
.
On the way to the cell , the officer decided to be spiteful.
” You go teyy for here ! “
” E go reach 6 months before your matter even enter court “
” E no matter sha. Na life sentence them dey give rapists ”
” Basterd , but na small small pikin you dey rape. I go happy if them hang you. Oloshi ”
(He slaps my head)
” Na your roommate tell us how we go catch you. E talk say make we follow your babe well and we go hold you “
” Hahaha , woman wrapper “
” Na im tell us say that other basterd dey hospital too “
” We catch that one and hin Brothers with Machetes whey blood dey ontop so na peme those ones go peme “
” I go like make you sef die . Person like you no spose dey alive. ( slaps my head again as he pushes me into the cell) “
_
So Segun ratted every single person out. Such a snitch and a basterd. After a month in the cell. Maurice said he had a confession to make to the police . After he made the confession , we were all brought to the interrogation room so he’d repeat himself. Then he went at it with a teary voice that seemed realistic but I was sure wasn’t.
_
” Na the guy be this ! ” He pointed at Segun.
Segun was shocked. He went on..
” E get like 3 girls whey die for Williams side “
” I been rape 2 to death and this guy rape one to death ”
_
Segun replied ” Ahh! I didn’t rape anybody . Stop lying you basterd! ” . A policeman went close to him and landed him a slap ” Shut up your mouth! ”
.
Maurice continued ” I no wan talk before because say I no wan fuck up my guy. But now I done sabi say na die I go die. I wan go heaven . Na him make me dey confess like this. Abeg , Segun no vex. You sef confess make you go heaven too. E worth am bro ”
.
I was wowed! Maurice is a crazy dude. He probably found out Segun ratted everyone out and decided he won’t go down alone. He even went ahead to give details of the story and it all sounded believable. Segun was going down afterall.
.
After 4 months , we were charged to court. Maurice , Segun , Michael and his boys were charged with Murder. I was charged wuth rape. Segun and Maurice were also charged with rape. I was the only one sentenced to life imprisonment. The others were executed promptly. Christy came to see me twice and stopped. My Mom died of Hypertension a year later. I woke up every morning imagining all I could have been in this lifetime that was now impossible because of greed.
.
I was just another wasted soul in a Nigerian prison that was unfortunate to meet a Sandra Williams.
