*BON Appetité Restaurant.
*PORT HARCOURT, Nigeria.
The waiters dashed to and fro in different directions. The pattern which they moved was spectacular. Their attire resonated brilliance and mastercraft combined with a touch of excellence.
” Bon aprés midi, Monsieurs ” A waiter cut me short in my thoughts. He stood tall in his 6” physique. His teeth adorned his welcome royalè of a smile. In their grandeur and all splendour( the typical French taste)
” Bon aprés midi, çava? ” Tayo replied.
I was not surprised to hear him speak the tongue. (He bagged a Bsc in international studies and diplomacy) . He was fluent and just then I admired his style.
Even when he was into shipping biz, he was versatile in languages.
”Çava bien, Merci, et toi? The waiter said.
I stared blankly as the duo chanted endlessly in a tongue I was not so interested break even a chalk for- Not today ,atleast.
The waiter left. He returned minutes later, with french delicacies.
Words alone cant describe what the aroma did to my gastric chamber.
I consumed the food like it was my last meal on earth. I savored the thrill.
I went back into time. (literally, it was a mini flashback)
My last encounter with Damilola.
She had begged me to stay, promising me wealth and a comfortable life.
The machines in the room seemed to follow my heart’s pace. I had been resistant and impervious.
The stench of drugs and sickness bullied my nostrils. Kemi and Funmi were already on the bench, dosing off with sleep.
I looked at Lola ,who was bent on ruining my life.
” Lets just keep our distance” I said ” We tend to loose in the end if we keep seeing each other. Our loved ones would suffer”
Her eyes had this look, that could instill fear and pity at the same time , into a man’s soul.
” Then have two women in your life” She encouraged me. ” I cant stand loosing you”
I pulled away my arms from her sick bed and went backwards. I just couldnt give in to her wishes. It was now all complicated. I wished I had not accepted her initial offer.
” Please…. We have to…we have to stop this madness ” I said, squinting my eyes and stammering.
The room radiated heat all of a sudden. I could feel my pants get wet with sweat. My deepest fears had come to pass.
I hurriedly pushed the door open, and ran like a thief pursued by his own waterloo( nemesis).
Off I went , into the barren night and forgot I came with a car, only to remember when my legs started to hurt.
” Vouz comfortablès?
” oui…Merci…..” Tayo yanked me out of the thought in my head.
He was thanking the waiter who just left a moment ago.
I had’nt noticed him standing there as he waited to take more orders.
We stood at the entrance of the glass-walled restaurant. Tayo’s car was parked a few centimeters away from mine.
I was about to pull the driver’s door when I saw a familiar figure.
Kate?? I asked myself.
She was alighting from a 2015 model End of discussion Jeep. She was not alone: A man came down with them- Mimi was there too and I could sense foul play.
I heard a motorbike engine reving from afar. It sped like it was doomed to beat time, and escape enternity.
” Get down… ‘ Tayo shouted as he jumped me with force.
Bullets rained our direction from the man behind the rider on the bike. He was masked and his Short machine gun vomitted bullets that tore the glasses of ” Bon Appetite”, leaving a map in its trail.
They zoomed off in a blink.
I landed head flat on the concrete slab, feeling a cold sensation. My skull was bleeding, so was my chest( red and bloody.
Tayo’s whole mass rested on mine. He was motionless and his white shirt soaked from the right shoulder downwards.
” Gabriel!!!…. No ooo oo!!
A voice called out
The voice was familiar.
Everything became blurred. People popped out from their hideout.
I could only see thread- like figures moving in a mirage.
” Are they dead?.”
” He is bleeding…”
” call an ambulance… Call an ambulance”
voices came and echoed in my ears. No one seemed to come to our aid.
Then I remembered….
” Adetayo?…Tayo? I said, touching him. But no! He was brick silent.
We layed in a pool of blood. I was not sure if it was real. He was unconcious (or maybe dead). He didnt move.
” love? Can you hear me… Stay with me…hold on…. Help is on the… Dont leave me now… Stay …stay” kate cried as she covered the blue skies with her face.
Her face was blurred.
I gasped for air , staring blankly into oblivion.
” Tayo?? …tayo… Tayo…”
I was more concerned about him than myself. My head became heavy. My eyes ached. My eyelids shut. I saw nothing . Just black…pitch Black…..
Everything else became nothing, but darkness.

2: 30 pm GMT( 4hrs ago.)
A day like this one, made me grow wild and sinister in thoughts. In the past , I would have resorted to something more painful and wicked to almost everyone that caused me pain.
Doctor Johnson walked into the room and I watched as he took up the charts and pretending to jot down something . Kemi had already taken Funmi home and came back briefly before she left for work.
I looked at Dr. Johnson with so much disappointment. Indeed I was.
” Why did you fool me? I asked as my eyes pryed into the chart he was holding.
” I did not … ” He said ” I only gave you a sedative because you wanted my help. So I did what I thought was best.”
” Which did not work. Are you playing games with me here?
He was surprised and turned sideways facing me , this time he put the chart on the carbinet.
” I remember giving you a shot of anaesthesia” Dr. Johnson said ” which you requested; after which I emptied your aspirin pills into the sink then flushed it down the pipe.
” You failed ! ” I shouted and twitched my muscles.
” Failed? I did not. ” He continued” I sent an SOS (an emergency alert) text message to your friend …. Kemi and left your house unnoticed.”
I wished dearly he had not done anything. I wished he had not thrown the pills down the sink, instead he could have just sholve it down his ugly a-s. I had just wasted time and energy begging for love. Gabriel must have thought me a fool or lunatic that tried to take her own life into her hands.
” When Will I get my complete payment? He said.
” You will get nothing from me. ” I relaxed my head on the bed then said ” You can leave now. I already have things under control”
” How? He asked , looking very confused.
” Its complicated.” I continued ” Just book my discharging papers so I can get the hell out of here”
He pulled the door open and I sighed biterlly.
” Oh! Lest I forget, doctor. Your report was marvelous . They actually believed that I drugged myself. That I took an overdose . Incredible job!!!” ” I said as I shook my head .
I smiled hysterically and picked up my buzzing phone on top the cabinet.. A text from an unknown sender read:
*Its done….just like you wanted it.*
St Francis Hospital
6: 30 pm GMT ( present )
The doctors were really busy. I heard the Chief Surgeon give out instructions to her surbodinates and every hand was on deck to save the lives of Gabriel and Tayo, who properly had lost so much blood already.
” Charge CPR…. Clear … Defibrillator fused… Clear… Charge CPR… Clear… Heart rate? , pulse unstable .. Charge …. Clear.”
Mimi was shedding tears while Kate whimpered in shock. Kate had protested to join the medical team in the ER( emergency room) , but was refused entrance. Some moments later , a young man came walking down the hall way with two other ladies and a little boy.
From their discussion , I picked it up that they were family to Kate. No one talked to me- Nobody cared. The guy went up ahead and peeped through the gallery of the ER, but was scolded by a nurse who told him to leave the window.
Another lady came, disturbed and crying her lungs out. Kate identified with her as Tayo’s wife. Her husband was now in a trauma shock and slipping gradually into a coma.
* ” What have I done? ” Kate asked Mimi ” I put my husband in harm’s way”
I was eavesdropping ( and listening from a distance as they had no idea about it)
” Mimi” she continued ” Why did I follow your idea of having fun?
” Don’t blame me now” Mimi blurted out as she cleaned her face off with a handkerchief. ” You wanted to have a ” We- time remember? How is it my fault?
” I asked you to celebrate mother’s successful surgery with me. I never wanted Andy to tag along! ” Kate said ” And how come he was at the gym club for God’s sake?
” Are you kidding? ” Mimi asked ” He is a platinum member. He virtually owns the gym. Will you blame me for what I have no idea about or pray for Gabriel and Tayo’s lives?
Mimi’ s eyes turned red and her cheeks were scaly with dried tears. She began another round of crying her heart out. I had heard enough as it dawned upon me that I was at fault. If I had not forced them to have coffee with me, Tayo would have not got shot trying to save his friend. Gabriel was only surprised to see Kate in my car. If my common sense, was good enough I could have sensed danger and stopped the nonsense.
I sneaked out as they were too busy to even notice my presence – nor even when I’m gone.
Outside the entrance of the main reception, I bumped into a lady.
” Sorry…” she began.
” watch where you are going ,lady” I was indeed furious .
She was wearing high heels, very tall and was beautiful with her blonde hair.
” You watch it . ” She said” I apologised and yet you vent out your anger on me.mtchewwww”
She passed me by and I noticed as she looked left and right ( in a very suspicious manner) before she went down into the hall way. Something in me sensed that she was up to evil . I could pick a smell of danger , somewhere.
