Midnight Stories – Untruth ( Episode 7)

.

I tried calling Maurice over and over but his number wouldn’t go through. I could not make it to the hospital that night so
I sent him multiple WhatsApp msgs but I never got a reply. He needs to call this off! There are too many innocent people involved. So I decided I’ll wake up as early as possible to make my way to the hospital in the morning. I texted Christy that I willl see her in the evening instead.

.

I could barely sleep. I felt like suffocating Segun as he snored without control. Everything he did , even in his sleep just kept irritating me. I endured it though. In the morning , I made my way to the hospital around 7.30 am. I asked to see Maurice but I was denied access. Really? Whats all this? This nurse was so rude too. So I went to another nurse and I asked calmly. I even told her I was the one that brought him to the hospital. Then she explained to me . In her words ‘ His family members are in there and they asked not to be disturbed ‘ . Family members? I hope that is not Michael she is talking about. 7.30 and he is already here? . Wow , I waited at the reception while I tried calling Maurice’s no. Still didn’t go through. I kept trying till it eventually went through. He picked up . . .

.

Maurice : Bro , how far?

.

Me : I dey , I don dey try call you since. Your number no go.

.

Maurice : Yeah man , I chook am for Airplane mode. Too many people been dey call me. Them no allow me rest.

.

Me : Alright fam. I dey Reception sef. Nurse no gree me enter. She talk say Family members dey with you.

.

Maurice : Ahh ! No vex Brother. Mikey don dey here since 7. He talk say e no wan see anybody.

.

( Whispering in background)

(Mikey, My friend dey outside. E fi enter ? )

.

After about 10 seconds. He spoke to me

“Bro , you fi enter . No vex”

_

When I stepped in. Maurice was on his bed and there were two guys sitted on each side of the bed. I greeted both of them but I was awfully ignored. ” Good morning Boss ” I greeted Michael again. He looked at me and faced Maurice.

.

Michael : Maurice , who be this guy ?

.

Maurice : Na my guy be this nah bro. Na him dey always hold me down that time before I jam that bastard woman. You don see am before. You remember that party whey them AJ boys been wan fuck up before you enter? E dey part of organizers!

.

Michael : Ok.

_

He still didn’t acknowledge my presence. I went at it again ‘ Boss , long time no see ‘ . He ignored me. I started feeling invincible. Why in the world will someone have this kind of attitude? He’s not even answering my greetings. How am I suppose to stop him from doing what he came to do when I can’t even talk to him ? Suddenly ,his phone rang. He picked.

_

Michael : Hello!

You done pin the location?

No gbege .

We dey come now.

_

Ahh ! Pin location keh? I didn’t know what to say as he stood up and was making his way out of the room . I just had to try so I spoke up again ‘ Boss , I go like follow you talk about something if you no mind ‘ . He didn’t even look at me this time. He only signalled the other guy to follow as he left the room. Damn! This brief black guy just ignored my existence. I felt really stupid being in that room. I looked at Maurice and he was holding a serious laugh. I was pissed!

_

Me : Biko , why you dey laugh ?! This is not a joke . Your Bro wan go murd innocent people and you dey laugh like say e funny. You wan tell me say you no see my WhatsApp msgs ?

.

Maurice : hahahaha , I see them nah. But e don late bro. Mikey don make up him mind. Nothing dey whey I fit do.

.

Me : Gee , abeg. No do like this. My babe cousin dey part of those girls. You know this , Try call Michael make e call am off or something. Na beg I dey beg fam.

.

Maurice : Oh , true. That girl . Ok , I go send Mikey description of the girl. So if them Jam am , them nogo delete am. If not , she don exit be that.

.

Me : Guy , why you dey talk like this ? Na Death we dey talk for here man. Fucking death! Can’t you call him !!! You are saying you will send a description and if he doesn’t get it. An innocent pregnant girl will die. Please man , do something!

.

Maurice : Nigga!! ( coughs) You dey stress me ! Look at my leg man ( He opened the covering clothe ) . Yeah man ! Look at it. She did this to me ! I have an operation coming up that I am paying 2.5 m for. If the operation doesn’t go well , I might not walk again. I’m even lucky to not be dead. So try to get it. I want that woman’s empire to crumble. Those girls are collateral damage. Besides , you know Mikey. He won’t listen. He won’t even pick my calls at this stage.

.

Me : Bro . I get it. I understand how you feel man. But please , do something before it’s too late.

.

Maurice : ( Looking pissed ) I no ready do anything. Abi you wan go tell Olokpa ? Hahahahaha.

.

Me : Fam , this is not a joke. What is wrong with you ?

.

Maurice : Dude , get out of my room .

.

Me : Really ? Ontop wetin Maurice?

.

Maurice : I nogo like repeat myself again. Fuck out of this room!

.

Me : Wow , ok.

_

So I stepped out of the room . This is a damming situation . I paced around thinking of the next thing to do. Lord what do I do? A text message came in from Christy .

_

” Babe , I don’t have peace of mind . I am already on my way to your place. Since you said you really wanted to see me. I’ve not been able to concentrate on anything. If you’re doing something. I’ll wait for you till you’re done so we can talk ”

_

What’s all this biko? This is wrong timing . I can’t do this right now. Simple instruction , I will see you in the evening . Why is she coming now ? Tswwww .

.

Back to the matter , should I call Miss Williams to warn her ? Won’t that backfire on me somehow ? Its not like I have any choice at this stage. So I called. Number busy. I waited and called again. Number busy. I kept trying for 30 minutes . Hmm , wierd. So I approached someone at the reception and asked to borrow her phone and she obliged. I dialed the number on the phone and it rang. Oh wow! Miss Williams blocked me. Well , doesn’t matter at this point. I kept calling her with the new number but she wouldn’t pick. Just like I guessed , she doesn’t pick unknown numbers. If only she knew what I was calling for. I returned the phone. What was I to do now ? Segun is the last available option. Only Segun can get to her at this point.

_

So I jumped a bike and made my way home at top speed. When I got home. Christy was on the bed and Segun was right beside her and they were laughing. I burned inside! I couldn’t hold in it . ” Is that how you guys were laughing when you were fucking like the dogs that you are ?! ” . They both looked shocked .

_

Christy : ( Looking concerned) Babe , what are you talking about ?

.

Me : Oh cut the crap! I know you guys have been fucking . So don’t even pretend .

.

Segun : Guy , wetin be this nah ? Wetin you dey talk ?

.

Christy : Seriously Matt , where is all this coming from ?

_

( I was getting really pissed)

.

Me : I hope you two are not mad. You want to make a fool out of me ? Segun , give me your phone if you know you’ve done nothing wrong.

.

(I could sense Segun’s fear but he tried to laugh like I was being ridiculous but I saw through it. Christy’s hands were already shaking )

.

Segun : ( Smiling vaguely ) Why will I give you my phone? I have done nothing wrong Bro. Na since yesterday you done dey behave one kind.Christy is my padi , nothing more!

.

Me : Christy , it’s you I have business with. Not this animal. I want to know exactly why you did it. I love you and you know it so why did you have to do it. Talk to me babe.

_

I knew I was getting to Christy as tears were already dropping from her eyes.

.

Christy : ( Head bent & crying) It was a mistake Matt. I swear to God. It only happened once.

.

Me : A mistake you didn’t think I should know about ?! I read the chat Christy! You should have just told me!

.

Christy : I am sorry Matt. I was scared you’d leave me. I didn’t know how to explain myself.

_

Segun was just sitting there with his head bent. I bet he wished he could just disappear.

.

Me : How are you sure I won’t leave you now ? Hmmph. Shegs ! You are a backstabber and a dissapointment Bro. You don’t deserve anything good in life. God knows.

.

Segun : No vex Bro. Na mistake. Na only once the thing shele. No vex abeg.

_

(He sounded so unremorseful. You’d know he was even pissed he was sloppy enough to get caught. He kept whispering ‘Damn!’ . I’m guessing he figured I also read his msgs with Miss Williams .)

_

Me : Dude , You’re not sorry! I know about the other shit man. You’re just a basterd. Probably that’s why your Dad never stayed to take care of your lying ass .

.

( I could see the hate in his eyes. The pain that emanated from me mentioning his absent Dad . He clenched his fist . I enjoyed the fact that he was pained so I continued)

.

Me : Like I said man. You don’t deserve anything good. That’s why your whole life has been miserable. Your Mom sleeps around to fend for you and your siblings anyway. So like Mother , like son.

.

( Segun suddenly stood up. His eyes were blazing red. He was ready for a fight and I was ready to beat his ass too. )

.

Segun : Motherfucker! You are the one to talk yeah?!!! Christy ! Do you know your ” Perfect boyfriend ” sleeps with little girls for money ! I mean 10-15 year olds .

.

Christy : What!!!

.

Segun : Yeah , little girls and he gets them pregnant! He works for an old woman called Miss Williams. Ask the basterd if I am lying.

.

Christy : Which Miss Williams ? Sandra Williams ?

.

Segun : Oh , so he already told you about it sef? Hahahaha , so you even knew all this while

.

Christy : Jesus Christ !!!!!!!!!!!

.

( Oh God , this is just getting more and more complicated )

.

Me : Babe , you’ve got this all wrong. He’s lying trust me.

.

Christy : Please explain then. Please , before I run mad.

.

Segun : I’m not lying ! I have evidence if that’s what you need.

_

My phone beeped in the middle of the drama.It was a WhatsApp message from Maurice. It read

..

” Dude , I don try follow Mikey talk. E no gree Man. But e talk say e go spare your babe Cousin. ”

” Them don reach there already but I begged him to hold on . Send the girl’s picture asap ”

” You have just two minutes , I’ll forward the picture to him once I get it ”

_

Me : Christy , I am sorry. I have something to do. Please give me a minute

.

Christy : Really! You have something to do more important than the issues at hand ?

.

Me : Just a minute please ( Then I stepped out )

.

My hands were shaking as I started looking for Anu’s picture on my phone. I finally found one. I sent it but it didn’t go through. My Glo network was on Edge. Oh God! Damn this network. I kept trying but it wouldn’t go through.

.

Maurice messaged after a minute.

” Guy , whey the picture now ?! Mikey don dey lose patience “

.

I kept pacing from one spot to another looking for network. Heart beating and hands shaking. After about a minute again. Maurice messaged .

.

” Guy , e don late. Mikey and him boys don enter ”
