Tunji moved to Sparrow & asked him d same question, “Where is Belina” Sparrow looked very strong & rugged so Tunji knew that he had to be careful with him no matter d answer.
“Oga, we do wetin we ask u to do o, but that girl be winch, we no even know as she leave our front & d next thing we see be say, we dey pursue her & b4 we open our eyes, close am, she don enter motor”, he said & then pointed at his leg, “see, see my leg… d motor almost killed me” . Tunji wished he had a gun to shoot him dead instantly, but instead, he faced Tolu.
“What is d meaning of this now? what kind of rubbish is this? i should be at d airport now, ehn…”
“i am sorry, Tunji, i didn’t know that these idiots would spoil things this way”, Tolu said Tunji glared at him.
“i want to see Belina today, did u hear me? Today. If u don’t have belina with u, make sure u have my money” he said & pushed Sparrow into d bush as he made for his car.
Mr Badmus got to d airport much earlier than he ought to & he sat down in his car waiting for Tunji. he put on d radio in his car & 4d first time in a long while, he danced to d music which was being played in d radio. After he had waited for one hour & hadn’t seen Tunji & Belina, he called Tunji’s line. He did not pick d first time so he called d 2nd time, already getting worried. Tunji picked d phone
“Hello, Tunji. I have been at d airport for over an hour now & i have not seen u, what is up?” .
“Oh pls, spare me all that. That miserable daughter of urs is nowhere to be found”, he replied. Shocked, he screamed,
“Pls, don’t deceive me, are u telling me that u know nothing about this”, Tunji asked shouting angrily.
“Don’t ahn tunji me. if u don’t produce ur daughter today, be ready to return all d money i have been giving u since this matter started. I have been recording it & I have given u nothing less than 180, 000 Naira. Don’t joke with me o, failure to produce any of d two, i would get u arrested. U should know, without me telling u that i mean what i just said & i have enough power to back me up”, Tunji said and hung up.

I entered d dining room along side prisca & immediately Mrs Jegas, Prisca’s mother, saw me,she jumped from her seat & came to hold me tenderly. She had been almost like a second mother to me ever since she knew me as her daughter’s friend.
Her husband was also in d same vein although he covered his own; men’s characteristics. She was also so emotional so i was not surprised when i saw her face swimming with tears. The little display of affection made me feel sick cos it made me remember what it had been like with my mother.
My mother was not one who was perfect, infact, she was one of the most imperfect people on earth but i loved her all d same. I quickly cleared some air by saying,
“mum, it is not a big deal… or maybe it is but i am fine”
“No u look tired baby, come & sit down”, she said & moved me to a seat & quickly stuffed my plate with food. Mr Jegas, prisca’s father who could not hide his anger later said as we ate
“How can a man do this to his own daughter? He must be dealt with” He looked at me & said, “u can stay here for as long as u want & anything u need, u can count on us”. I muttered my sincere appreciation & went to hug them lovingly.
I sat down on my seat & i looked at Prisca who was smiling at me
Mr. Badmus drove like a mad man back to his house & two times, almost collided with two vehicles because of his mental distraction. He got home & sluggishly dragged himself into d house but once he got inside d sitting room, he sat down on d floor with his back against d door & put his hands on his head.
“Ah… I am finished”, he yelled, “Belina has killed me… she has finished finished me, she ruined all my plans, &… & where… ah, where would I get d one 180,000 from today, ehn?”
He remembered how Belina’s mother, Linda, with d circumstances surrounding d time & cursed that day with all his might. Since she came into his life, everything had gone from good to bad & from bad to worse & now that he had a chance to re-write his destiny,that witch has snatched that chance away from him giving him more problem than he ever bargained for.
He had been 28yrs old when he met Linda. He didn’t know d love of a mother cos she was always on business trips not giving a d–n about whatever happened to him but as busy as his father was he still had time for him. He had been on a journey with his father one day when he was 25 when they got involved in an accident. The accident did not claim his life but it claimed his father’s life.
When he became 28, he went to d doctor cos he had slept with several girls without protection & did not record any of them coming to him with d ‘I am pregnant’ story. a test had been carried out which brought his worst nightmare to light. The doctor had looked him straight in d face & said,
“…I am sorry, u can never be able to impregnate a woman”.
