Diluted Bullet (Weeping Love) Episode 2



The two guys that entered each had a black mask on. They were hefty looking and tall. They had on big black boots that looked like army’s boot. We all shivered in fears as they glared at us like we’re a big threat.
They moved up and down staring at us.

One of them suddenly brought out a cigarette pack from his pocket, took a cigarette out of it and placed it on his lip.

He took a long gaze at me before he finally brought out a lighter from his pocket, clicked on its starter, placed it to the tip of the cigarette clamped between his lips ,and thick flames started emerging from the cigarette.

” this boy is the most handsome guy among them ” the one with the cigarette said as he moved closer to me and I felt my small penis releasing hot fluid.

” oh boy, this boy don weewee for body sha ” the one with the cigarette said as streams laughter erupted from his mouth not excluding his partner who was still pacing around looking at the remaining kids.

” welcome to THE MASK, kids” The second guy said with a deep baritone.


I viewed the room well, the taste wasn’t bad to mine.

It was made up of a sitting room which was well furnished and designed.

Two bedrooms, one for the lecturer who’s currently holding its key and the other for visitor.

The two bedrooms has its own bathroom and toilet. Both beside themselves ,and looked neat. I moved to the bedroom and checked all my stuffs which I’ve sent to the university before. It was placed carefully beside the bed . Two luggages, locked with a rigid security panel. I inserted my password and unlock it.

Beneath the clothes were my three toys. Actually, they’re four but I got one on me already. I pulled out my glock 17 pistol tucked in my trouser, I brought out its cartridge and checked the bullets, it was still complete, I jammed it back in as I returned it back to its position.

I’m always with my glock 17 pistol, I loved it features and how small it is.
But I always carry it around for self protection, in case I’m stranded, tho I still had two knifes hidden somewhere in my body. You can’t tell when danger is coming when you’re in THE MASK.

Seeing my stuffs in place, I locked my luggage back, I couldn’t open the second one as a phone which I was sure wasn’t mine started ringing in the house.

I traced the ringing tone back to the sitting room. It was a land phone, I was surprised to see it there, I rarely miss things like that.

I picked the call and I heard a female voice say “hello Mr Parker ”

” hello ” I replied the caller.

” you’ll be having your class in the next 10 minute, use the map beside this phone as a guide to the language department, room ²³ in block 75, that’s where you’ll be having your class ” the voice stated fluently in British English.

“. So soon ” I muttered under my breath

” you said “? The voice asked thinking I was talking to her.

” thank you, I’ll get my ass moving now ” I said as I swiftly dropped the call. ” let do this ” I said to myself as I heaved a sigh of relief and I exit my room.


Ella entered the house in haste startling Aminat who was engrossed in the TV program been aired on the 32 inches flat screen TV in the sitting room.

” is Kingsley coming ” Aminat asked startling as she quickly switched off the TV., inaugurating a motion of dashing out if the room.

” why are you still scared of that goat, mtcheeew ” Ella hissed angrily as she sat on one of the comfortable sofa in the sitting room.

” is he the one coming or not “. Aminat said not sitting down as she readied herself to dash out of the sitting room.

” do you think I’ll be in haste to come visit you early this morning because of Kingsley ” she said hissing loudly again.

” sit down joor, I’ve a gist for you ” Ella said as she swiftly pulled Aminat to sit beside her

” what’s the gist that made you to almost give me a heart attack ” she asked smiling as she switch the TV on with its remote but paused the program she’s watching with a dstv remote.

” but babe, you need to face Kingsley, you can’t keep on hiding for him ” Ella said with a serious countenance.

” I’ll do that later , tell me the gist na,you know that I love gist ” Aminat said feigning a babyish cry.

” there’s a new guy in school ” Ella screamed excitedly

” is that all ” Aminat remarked disappointedly

” babe, let me land na, you know that I’m always the one with the perfect news and gist ” Ella said squeezing her face.

” okay, mo n gbo { I’m hearing }” Aminat said mixing her dialect with English.

” he’s the hottest guy I’ve ever seen , Kingsley is an A grade ugly dude compare to this guy ” Ella said smiling to show that she’s head over heel for the new guy she just met.

” really “! Aminat exclaimed changing her sitting position in order to stare directly at Ella’s face ” gist me babe, which course is he here to study and which level did he registered for “? Aminat asked flicking her heavy fixed eye lash

” I don’t know yet, I saw him when I was coming back from Khalid’s room, you remembered I told you I was going to sleep over at his place yesterday ” Ella said trying to remind Aminat of the conversation they’ve had the previous day.

” I remembered, oya gist me, did he passed his normal two rounds this time ” Aminat said covering her mouth as she tried to keep the stream of laughter that was about to flow from her mouth at bay.

” you’re not serious, I think your mum gave birth to you while she was gisting with your dad ,I’m not even through with the one that brought me here ” Ella said hissing loudly.

” you know that I love gist like hell but you need to find out about the new guy, but he will be a total waste if he’s below us, you know I don’t date junior ” Aminat said with one of her finger twisted in her long fixed hair.

” see you ooo, who told you that I’m advertising him to you so that you can date him ” Ella yelled loudly clapping her hands together in a jovial manner.

” I’m the only single here nah, or are you going to leave your precious Khalid for him ” Aminat asked her smiling.

” babe, I can leave him ,for this guy ,I can, you should have been there, then you’ll know he’s worth leaving one two rounds guy ” Ella replied with a tone that depict that she meant what she said.

” that reminds me, what of Gina, I haven’t seen her since she came back from Portugal ” Ella added looking curious.

” yeah, Mr David has placed her under house arrest, he’s not happy with her for leaving Portugal, he want her to change her mind about staying in Nigeria with that. I can only visit her at home ” Aminat said with a sad countenance.

” but what’s wrong with her nah, isn’t that the 13th country she will be eloping from all in the name that she doesn’t like there ” Ella said fusing up a bit.

” it isn’t her fault, she only want to be with her dad, you know she can’t do without her dad ” Aminat said with an ounce of pity reflecting in her tone.

” then Mr David should let her be, why prolonging the matter ” Ella said hissing loudly.

” you know it isn’t safe for her to be in Nigeria, especially now that election is around the corner ” Aminat explained to Ella trying to make her reason with her point.

” I know it isn’t safe ,but why is yours not forcing you too to leave the country, he’s also a lion in this jungle nah ” Ella said frowning her face.

” and Mr David is a dragon in the game, not only the animals want his head , humans too are on a hunt for him ” Aminat said and Ella shook her head to show that she supported her point.

” that’s their own palava, I just feel for Gina, let me go and dress up, lecture would have started, and I want to see the new foreign language the school recruited after the death of Mr Popoola Lekan ” Ella said standing up.

” bye bye, I’m not coming sha ” Aminat said concentrating on the TV program she’s was watching before Ella entered.

” and why are you not coming ” Ella said standing in front of her thereby blocking her view of the program she’s watching.

” you know Kingsley will be there and I’m not ready to face him yet ” Aminat said pausing the TV program.

” okay ooo, God will help you and your ex ” Ella said laughing mockingly as she exit Aminat’s room.

With the help of the map I took beside the land phone, I was able to locate the lecture room,tho I knew there before. I know everything about the school like my palm. Every room, secret ones, secret passage, undetectable hideout and different places. I’ve already done my assignment before embarking on such a dangerous mission. A mission that THE MASK thinks I’m the only one capable of executing it. A mission that was suppose to be carried out for a whole year. We rarely embark on such a long period of time mission.

The windows of the lecture room was tinted and locked thereby blocking the view of outsiders. I heaved a sigh before I wrapped my hand around the door knob, and click goes the sound as the door opened.

I was surprised to meet the neatly arranged chairs and sparkling clean desks inside the lecture room empty.
Not a single soul of human was inside the lecture room.

I smiled to myself remembering where I was, home of all the nation’s spoilt brat, expecting them to be early for lecture is like expecting the genuine waec result of MR B, you can never see it.

I made my way to one of the neat chair and desk and sat on it. The air condition of the room was working wonder. My minds revolves on how the mission was going to be a success, especially the starting point which I’ll be beginning soon.

In THE MASK principle, the starting point of every mission means a lot to the mission.

I’ve never undertaken a mission which I’m suppose to undertake the role of a tutor in it. Tho we’ve been groomed well for any type of mission but I had some doubt about myself, something which rarely happen to me.

With a lot on my mind, I placed my head on the desk and didn’t know when I drifted off.

Even a year training can’t hinder nature from performing its wonders.
The last month has been tedious for me.

Having to learn two foreign language within a month was something that was a little bit extreme even for someone with 225 IQ result like me.
And having to perform some mission too in between my learning session.
Like eliminating the former foreign language teacher of the school, Mr popoola Lekan, killing the deputy governor of Kogi state and completing a mission of making the wife of a famous Nigeria footballer playing in Europe to divorce him without letting her get a dime out if his properties. The mission lasted for 3 months.

I woke up to the opening of the door of the lecture room. I’m a light sleeper, we’ve been trained like that. The perching of a mosquito on an agent in THE MASK skin, even without biting is capable of waking him or her up.

It was a young fat guy that entered. He had a big burger in his hand which he was eating ferociously. He looked at me like I was an alien before he made his way to one of the chair and desk in the room. Tho every chair were sparkling clean but he still cleaned it with his handkerchief before sitting down.

He took off the bag pack on his back and sat down. He opened his bag pack and brought Peffy soft drink in pet form. Peffy soft drink is sold at #5000 per bottle, it’s rarely found on the street.

He occasionally stole glances at me as he ate his burger and escorted it with the Peffy drink in his hand. The door opened again and three young girls entered with classy handbags. They dressed like they were going for a party, polished nails, fixed eye lash, high heels, skimpy dress etc. They glanced at me smiling as they head to their seat. I pretended not to be interested in them as I raised my head up gazing at the Marker board in front of the room.

Through the corner of my eye, I saw as they chat and giggled , as they were passing turn to look at me. According to my calculation, the class had only 24 seats and four were already occupied by students, which means it remains 20 students to go. I was planning on standing up and start the teaching when I have half the population of the class.

Tick tick tick, goes the time and come the students. They were already 11, I was only waiting for one more before I start my teaching.

All the students that entered all treated me like I was a kind of alien. They all stared at me and all I could do was smile. The door suddenly flung opened with force and three guys entered, Merely looking at them, I knew I was going to have problem with them in my course of teaching in the school. They were putting on expensive clothes but in a hooligans manner. They were heading towards me, I knew trouble was already knocking on my door so I quickly stood up and head to the front of the class in front of the board.

I saw one of the guy give me a deadly look before he sat down from where I stood up and the other two guys sat on different seat.

” good morning all, my name is Benjamin Parker and I’m your new foreign language lecturer ” I said briefly and the students bursted into an uproar.

To be continue…
