STORY: The Devil Who Loved Me - Episode 24





Toun came in very late smelling of alcohol. I was glad she even decided to come back that night. I allowed her to sleep, intending to talk to her about the Naetochukwu ish when we got to school..
So as we went to the cafetaria to eat around noon, i brought up the topic…
Me : How is Naeto?
Toun : he is good, never knew he had an interesting sense of humour…
Me : Abayomi saw you leave with him…
Toun : Tana ! my life doesnt evolve around Abayomi…
Me : The guy loves you….
Toun : i am not ready to talk about him…stop it Tana…
Me : Ok…i am sorry…
Toun : i am sorry too…
Me : so how was the date?
Toun : it was good, drank guiness for the first time…
Me : did you guys…hmmmm hmmmmm?
We were seated now, waiting for our order…
Toun : No…i kissed him though…
My heart broke a bit…

Two guys came to seat opposite us, i recognised Daniel, he visited John in my compound a couple of times…After exchanging pleasanteries….i continued with Toun…
Me : so did he ask you out?
Toun : no o…but i enjoyed myself…he will come to the house tonight…hope you dont mind?
ofcourse i mind you fuccking heartbreaker…
me : No i dont mind, dear..
Suddenly there was a hush in the cafetaria, two guys came in..all eyes were on them, unfortunately, they were coming in our direction…One of them stopped to talk to a light skinned lady, two tables away. The other one came directly to us…
Guy : Make una Waka, we warn use this seat…
Daniel and his friend looked at him. but decided to ignore him, a lot of eyes were on them, i was sure they didnt want to be seen like sissies…
Guy : una no dey hear word abi?…
Daniel and his friend once again ignored him, until the guy lifted his shirt from the side. showing the shinny metal butt of a gun.
They stood up without further ado…
Toun : Tana lets go…
beneath the table i was sendind a text to Jafar….i could smell trouble around me..My raising up my head to answer Toun, coincided with the other guy joining the first on the seat…He didnt need to introduce himself, i could see he had just one eye..
Eli : Tana …. howfar na…hope say i meet una well?
He had a face that would have been called handsome if not for the numerous scars. He was smoking a stick of cigarette even though a big sign said “no smoking”..
The other guy sitting next to him had his eyes fixed on Toun. I was scared shitless…
Me : Hello, i dont know you…
Eli : No vex, you fit call me Eli..
Me : Nice to meet you
We stood up to leave..my heart was beating fast, i hoped he wasnt gonna stop us..
Eli : una don chop finish?
Toun : yes we have…
She rolled her eyes at him…
Eli : Sit down small make we yarn as brothers and sisters…
Toun : No thank you…
Eli : if una no sit down now, i go empty this Machine for una belle…abi u dey crase?…
Toun became very humble, i quickly sat down along-side her..
I looked around the cafetaria, the place that was filled up was now empty..i was shaking….
Eli : Tana, you go need step down. you and Abayomi
.i go check am today but him no dey Campus..but you go tell am say i don discuss with you. abi?
Me : I will discuss with Abayomi.
Eli : People dey always say, Eli like wahala…Eli dis, Eli dat…but no be so..
Me : okay…
Eli : The SUG president go be National..We don gree teytey
..tell Abayomi say make him no believe say we no fit get am o
..and you yourself…nowhere to hide..
The lady running the cafetaria came with a plate of fried beef and dropped it carefully infront of him..
Me : can we go now?
Eli : Not yet…
He and his other guy ate in silence….i was wondering how long it would take for Jafar to come or send his peeps, i eas freaking out..but then i realised it would be dangerous for Jafar to come, Eli might just take his revenge..
It was around 2pm when he stood us and commanded us to follow him outside…His Black BMW was packed beside the cafetaria, his colleague whom he called Orisa ushered us in…
Me : where are you taking us to?
Eli : Lol…no fear..
The story about his rape escapades flooded my brain…
Me : Eli, allow us go…i will discuss with Abayomi about stepping down..
He ignored me, instead he lit up another cigarette and drove out of Mini-campus…
He continued driving in silence, Orisa rested his head on his chair, sipping a bottle of London dry gin..
I got a text on my phone…it was Jafar….
Jafar = I am behind you guys…dont be scared…
Fool! i was scared for him more…
Me = He has guns, Jafar dont worry, he wnt harm us…but he will kill you…
I hoped the text i sent to Jafar brought him to his senses….
Jafar = dont worry…
As if on cue, Uche’s Hillux overtook Eli with Uche driving and Scanty by his side, while Through the side mirror, Jafar’s Benz was directly behind him…
Eli noticed Uche’s Hillux, he looked at me and smiled… Toun was completely petrified…
Eli : your people have come for you abi?
i didnt answer…Uche was slowing down on purpose…Eli couldnt move as fast as he wanted.. He picked up his phone with his left hand dialled a number and put it on speaker..it was Jafar he called…
Eli : howfar Jafar?
Jafar : Eli…
Eli : na because of these jews you dey follow me like this?
Jafar : Doz girls na my people…
Eli : You don bam them?
Jafar : Eli , free those girls…
Eli : and if i no free them?
Jafar : We go murder you for this town…
Eli : Lol…you no fit na…before i count 10, if you and Uche no commot for my side i go scatter Tana head….
Jafar remained silent…
Eli : you dey doubt me abi?
Jafar hung up….
Orisa brought out his pistol and placed it on my head….
Uche swerved to the right, allowing Eli have the road…through the mirror, i saw Jafar back down…
Eli started whistling as he drove us towards Ijebu-Igbo…
He started singing Danfo Driver’s Jogodo song as he drove into Ijebu-Igbo. No matter how many times i entered that town, i never got used to the smell of Cows being slaughtered around the market. His car pulled into a paintless compound on the left..The smell of weed was everywhere…guys with bloodshot eyes loitered around, some dirty looking girls with cheap tattoos were also around..
Eli : Una go dey here till Abayomi get sense
Me : but we already assured you..let us go Eli…
Eli : hehehehe..
Some guys surrounded the car as we stepped down, chants of ‘Baba, Eruku,’ filled the air…
We were led into the one story building that smelled worse of weed. I noticed some guys i knew in campus that i didnt even know where cultists..
Me : Eli, atleast let Toun go…
Toun : No, i am staying here with you…
Eli : una don dey bore me…
He turned to Orisa and instructed him to keep us in a room…he had urgent business to attend to..
My phone rang, it was Timi. He must be on his way to pick me up from mini-campus..
Timi : babe howfar…
me : im good
Timi : where u dey?
me : somewhere not too far, you have your keys yh?…i will meet you soon…
i didnt wait for him to reply before i hung up…
Toun and i were kept in a dirty looking room with a mattress without bedsheets and cigarette marks all over..
Toun : Tana, dont you think you guys should really step down?
Me : I think so Toun…i dont wanna lose my life for this ish…
Toun : Lets just graduate and get out of this school….
Me : i am sure Naetochukwu will be worried now…
she smiled at what i said, i realised she actually liked the guy…
Toun’s phone rang some minutes later, as i suspected, it was Naetochukwu…He wanted to know when they would see later..,she told him she would meet him at his place…
We had been trying to call Abayomi but his number was switched off..we had no other option than to sit and wait. Orisa came in Later to tell us that Eli wanted us at the veranda…Streams of fear washed over me….
He was standing at the veranda, wearing a green towel around his waist. His chest and six-packs had been formed by life rather than the gym..His only eye stared at us as we joined him..He was holding a stainless steel cup and sipping from it.
Eli : Tanatolo….Hwfar omo ibo toh sexy…
Me : Eli it is getting late, Abayomi is unreachable…please ler us go…
Toun : Please..
Eli looked on as if we were talking to ourselves. Downstairs, some guys were arguing about something they were passionate about….
He had a slow smile on his lips, seemed like he hoped it was going to lead to a fight…
Eli : hunger wan kill me…Tanatolo…u too?
Me : No…i am good…
Eli : beta chop…because when i handle that your succulent yansh this night..you go need gather strenght o…walahi!..
i trembeled….
Me : Eli…you cant be serious…
Toun : Bros, you want to rape her?
Eli : No be rape until u report am na…
Toun : Jafar nko?
Eli laughed till his towel almost pulled off….
Eli : Jafar Papa! when him still be Jambite, i don dey mount parade for this skul…
I knew Toun didnt mean harm mentioning Jafar’s name, but she just dug my grave..
Eli : na two of una o….hehehehe…no blame me, na Abayomi ignore us….i need tender love to feel better….hehehehe…
I wish once again, Jafar would perform a miracle..Toun was crying again…it was dark in the dark, smelly house….
Eli : Orisha…abeg organise Amala for me from that woman wey dey garage and buy Opa-eyin 50 naira..
i sent a text to Jafar…
