Ma¥be that vvas just hovv it vvanted to happen, i had made the mistake from the beginning, so the onl¥ thing i could do vvas to either save m¥self from the mess and face the vvorse cos this time m¥ destin¥ lied in m¥ ovvn hands and in this kind of situation, if the¥ got hold of me, the treating ll be cra§¥ and thats if i even survive it.
As i got a bold glimse of Sl¥’s face as i approached the table vvere m¥ friends sat, m¥ heart flevv out of m¥ chest, as i savv him, i stood still vvere i vvas immediatel¥, and i didnt knovv vvh¥, i vvas confused cos ve never been that scared in m¥ life before, not knovving he hadnt even noticed me cos of m¥ shade, but me just feel sa¥ the gu¥ don see me, but just has m¥ brain rebooted and made me vvake up from m¥ slumber, it davvned on me he hadnt noticed me ¥et and that i needed run the race of m¥ life, faster even more than m¥ legs can carr¥ me, but i vvas alread¥ trembling in fear, so instead of me to just turn and run or vvalk avva¥ fastl¥ from there, i vvas vvalking backvvards slovvl¥ vvith the intention of moving avva¥ from them before i run, ¥ou gu¥s vvont blame me cos i vvas scared to death, cos vvho knovvs ma¥be m¥ life vvould ve ended that da¥, even if it vvas Sl¥ that offended me first it didnt matter cos he must ve narrated the issue to his men, so one vva¥ or the other the¥ vvould ve been planning or planned to hit back vvhen their number one target(me) delivered m¥self to them in a platter of gold, so there vvas vvar alread¥ betvveen the tvvo frats just that it vvas still in its toothling stages.
VVhen i vvas stupidl¥ vvalking backvvards out of fear, tr¥ing to give them as much space as i can before i take off, that vvas vvhen Sl¥ noticed me, as he savv me, i svvear i savv the shock in his face, he stood up from his seat but the luck i had vvas that i had given them enough space, it vvas vvhen he stood up i took to m¥ heels,
”nah the gu¥ be that,

nah the gu¥ be that” i heard him sa¥ as i ran out of the bar,
I ran as fast as i could, as i vvas tr¥ing to stop a bike, i sited Sl¥ and his men ran out of the bar looking for me, but the foolish bike vve¥ i de¥ stop just vvaka pass me, vvere he vvent to stop vvas the direction Sl¥ and his men vvere chasing me from,
”stop there,

stop there,

stop there” i vvas hearing different voices,
Just to let me knovv men vverent smiling, that the¥ needed m¥ head, i heard gun shots as i ran,
”kpola,

kpola”
I didnt knovv if the¥ vvere shooting at me or shooting it in the air, i just knovv i heard gun shots as i ran, vvhen i heard it tvvice it vvas then i knevv if i get caught i might not live to tell vvhat happened, m¥ heart vvas in m¥ palm, vvhen i heard the shots and ¥et still didnt feel an¥ pain, vvith voices shouting,
”hold that gu¥,

hold that gu¥”
This incident vvas happenning on a Sunda¥ evening, broad da¥ light, people vvere vvatching live as i ran for me life, i vvas running and pra¥ing,
”God please i dont vvant to die like this”
M¥ problem novv vvas ‘hovv bike vvan take stop for me like this’ i vvas asking m¥self,
Damn!, make God keep us alive make vve no see bad thing, cos one vvont understand vvhat it’s like tr¥ing to save ¥our live, before ¥our ovvn e¥es ¥ou see people coming for ¥our life to take it, as i ran, i vvas thinking about vvhat m¥ parents vvould do, if the¥ heard i vvas shot to death, and as bad as it vvas, it vvas thesame ver¥ da¥ i left home, m¥ Dad pra¥ed for me before i left, tapped me on the head after the pra¥ers, sa¥ing,
”go vvell m¥ son, it is vvell vvith ¥ou”,
It vvould ve broken their hearts not just as an onl¥ Son but an onl¥ child as vvell, if m¥ Dad vvould survive it, m¥ mum vvouldnt, the¥ vvouldnt ve forgotten that da¥ for the rest of their lives, men don see things oo, person suppose don de¥ si>< feet.
Stopping a bike at that moment vvas the hardest and ma¥be vvrongest decision to make, cos i had guns stucked in m¥ ar$$e, vvaiting for the groundnut to be released inside, i finall¥ ran till i got to vvere i savv bushes, i svvear vvithout thinking tvvice i ran inside, it vvas vvhen i started running inside the bush i realised i vvas on bear foot, cos things started piercing m¥ legs but i didnt care, i didnt even knovv vvhen m¥ palm-slippers left m¥ legs, i vvanted to rela>< but vvas still hearing gunshots, meaning the¥ ran into the bush too, this dudes vvanted me that bad, i didnt knovv vvhere i vvas even running to if it vvas a dead end, i just vvanted to do m¥ best to save m¥ life, not till i ran out to an isolated tiled road, and just as God

vvould ve it a bike just dropped someone not to far from vvhere i ran out, as i ran to them the¥ trembled, the girl that highlighted from the bike vvas still searching for her purse in her hand bag to pa¥ the bike man, i jumped on the bike,
”gu¥ abeg de¥ go some cult gu¥s vvan kill me” i shouted,
As he heard me, he §oomed off instantl¥ and didnt bother collecting mone¥ from her again.
