“seriously dear, isn’t it risky on my own part? Besides i may end up spoiling the whole thing with my presence, for the guy may think that i’m your boyfriend and that could annoy him” i explained to her, in a bid to back out, but she held my hand strongly and begged, “just come with me first and leave the rest for me to handle” she pleaded, and i swallowed hard as i looked into her eyes and my heart melted, which made me to shruggle in resignation, “ok no problem, i will go with you” i said to her with a forced smile, cos i really knew not, how to turn my back on her, cos i havn’t yet learnt how to say no to a woman, that period, and that was really how i accepted to undertake a very huge risk for a girl i just recently met……..

And she smiled happily at me as she hugged me, while i cleverly hid my thoughts and fear, cos i really do not want to appear weak in her eyes…. But then, i equally knew that i couldn’t undertake on that kind of journey alone or without backup, and i also knew that i couldn’t tell frank about it, for he will definetly shout at me or deem me insane, which i really wasn’t ready to hear, since i had already given angela my word, and so frank was really out of mind as a back up, but then i remembered Daniel, who is also popularly known as Dan, a hostel mate, and a very huge guy, who is well known for his brutality and i heaved a sigh of relief, for we ‘were kind of’ casual friends that period, even though he began to respect me more, when i returned that january with my new ride,{read season1} “who else if not him, will make a nice back up”, i said to myself with a smile, and i soon was brought back to reality, when angela locked her lips on mine as she kissed me passionately, “baby thanks alot for everything, we will be going to see him by 4pm at his place” she said to me, when she finally broke the kiss……

However, Getting Dan to follow me that evening, wasn’t a big deal, cos he really is very adventurous, and that was how he also became my first deputy, for we became very tight friends after that day…….

And so by 4:15pm, that monday evening, angela, Dan and i were already on our way to ikenegbu, where the guy in question lived, and my heart couldn’t help, but pound very hard, for i really knew not what to expect, besides i equally knew not, the gravity of what angela did to him……

However the truth of the whole thing, was that i embarked on a stupid journey, that monday evening, to meet a guy that i knew nothing about, or have even seen, just because of a mere girl who really meant nothing to me, forgetting that we only have one life to live on earth……..

“Kpoom kpoom kpoom kpoom!” my heart pounded as i drove to ikenegbu that fateful evening…..

Hmmm, and how really did that journey end…..

To be continued……
