***After Bimpe’s text message*******

I cried till midnight, the whole world appeared to be

crumbling before me. I suddenly lost appetite for

everything and the thoughts of suicide began to fill

my heart.

My memory flashed back to the stress, hustle and

struggles I went through for five years at the

university before obtaining the certificate, I began to

remember all the stress I went through during NYSC,

I also remembered how I squeezed out time out of

no time to attend java and oracle classes, I

remembered the stress of writing the professional

exams before finally getting the results.

“Chai!!!!, Adebimpe wicked gan ni oooo”

After a while, my mind stopped flashing back to the

past and it began to think about the future. I started

consoling myself with the thoughts that “after all, I

can easily re-apply for another certificates”, but how

will that be possible before thursday evening that I

would have to travel to Ado?.

***weeping and biting my finger****

“Chaii, Adebimpe is just wicked”

“Did I really deserved this extreme punishment?”

” What do I do before thursday?”

“Should I call my uncle to tell him that I don’t have

my results with me?”

“How will I even say it sef?”

“How do I even reach bimpe and beg her, who knows,

maybe should would forgive me”

“Who knows maybe she had set my certificates on

fire?”

“Will I just loose this chance of getting a better job

again?”

“Will my uncle ever be willing to assist me anymore?”

“I just wished I checked my credentials properly

before leaving the hospital”.

Infact, I regretted once again for travelling to niger

state for the GNLD interview.

I continued murmuring and crying all through the

night with nobody to talk to, At a point in time, I

thought of calling segun but I couldn’t. I was

seriously angry and mad at him. He was the one who

pushed me and led to bimpe’s “hard-way” treatment

in the first place. Bimpe shouldn’t have gone to this

extreme if he hadn’t chased her out when she was

here with me in Akure.

Another thought started overlapping my mind. I began

to see the whole things as the handiwork of my step-

mother.

“That woman must be a witch”

“She had never wanted my progress since child hood”

Why must my certificate be stolen at this time that I

needed it for a big job?”

Moments after, another thought came into my mind

that it must be the handiwork of the people from my

village.

“I could remember how my dad used to tell me that

the village people can bring people down in the spirit

realm”

Different thoughts began to overlap my brain as I

continued attaching the situation to every possible

circumstances. I looked at the wall clock and the

time is 3:48am and yet I couldn’t sleep.

“Chaiii, I swear to God, I will personally kill Adebimpe

any time I set my eyes on her again”

I began to nurse evil thoughts on how to harm

adebimpe. I wish I knew her contacts and address, I

wouldn’t mind paying hired killers to kill her.

inshort, I must take my own revenge also in a hard

way,

“This is definitely the Beginning of the end between

me and bimpe”

 

Its 6am on wednesday morning, I was feeling so

weak, sad, heart broken and depressed. My eyes

were all swollen and my joints were so weak, I knew

it that if I go to work that day, I would be so sad and

it would be so obvious on my face, but I couldn’t

excuse myself from work because I didn’t inform my

boss the previous day, I thought of travelling to Abuja

that Wednesday morning maybe I could get to see

bimpe, who knows, she might be in abuja and

pretending to be in lagos. But I had a second thought,

“What if I couldn’t find her in Abuja?”

“Do I even know where to locate her?”

“What if she had destroyed the certificates?”

“What would be my gain if I couldn’t return with the

certificates?”

At that moment, I just wished I have a black magic to

command the credentials to disappear from wherever

it is and re-appear in my room. I began to think of

locating a powerful herbalist who could help me to

summon and command the credentials. My mind and

head were just fill with different thoughts as they are

coming and overlapping.

I needed someone to talk to and segun couldn’t be

the person due to the fact that I was still so angry

with him. In fact, I don’t feel like seeing him again. If

he hadn’t pushed me to treat bimpe badly earlier,

who knows, she wouldn’t have gone to the extreme

on me.

I went to the bathroom to have my shower and I

dressed up. I couldn’t eat anything as a result of my

lost of appetite for any food. I just managed to cheer

up and proceeded to work.

I got to work and I was so moody. I refused to talk

and associate with anyone as sadness was all

written on my face. Segun was calling me but I

refused to pick up, after several missed calls from

segun, I decided to switch off my phone and force

myself to concentrate on my job.

I closed from work in the evening and went home

straight. On getting home, I saw segun seated on the

bench infront my compound. As I approached him, I

was so annoyed and furious within me, I just felt like

hitting a plank on his head. I walked pass him and he

greeted me but I ignored. I entered into my room and

he followed me inside.

SEGE: bro, wetin happen?, you just dey ignore my

calls since yesterday, I was feeling uncomfortable

and I decided to visit, you still ignored me. Why?

ME: ***raised eye brow*** why won’t I ignore you

segun?. WHY?

SEGE: what have I done wrong onihaxy?

ME: so you don’t know what you did wrong abi?

SEGE: **pats me on my shoulder** we are no more

friends but brothers, if there is anything wrong, why

not just tell me?.

ME: Are you not the cause of all the atrocities I’m

facing from Adebimpe?

SEGE: my brother, how?

ME: you dey ask me how?. If you hadn’t pushed me

to hurt this girl in the first place, this wouldn’t have

happened.
