I re-arranged my bedsheet and laid on my foam, the moment I lifted my duvet up they took light.
Voices: mad oh! Calabar no start oh, make we run for ona?
They were talking as if it is daybreak, I checked time and it is 1am into the next day morning.
Thankfully, the Calabar couples slept off after they completed their rounds for the night.
I was catching a good sleep when another big mouthed mad man started, his name is Tony.
He always claim to be a multi-purpose contractor and yet no nice technology and classy furnishing in his room started his own madness around 3am.
We dragged each other to places before he paid my house rent, I nodey use money play oh.
Tony: hello, am I speaking with manager of Total company….. Oh, yes. Is me engineer Tony….. I called to confirm if you have sent the 300billion naira
Voice: Tony, Tony, we know say you poor oh, why you dey call criminals come this yard, when you no get shi shi to give them.

Tony: aah! Mr. Badmus, julius himself…. No, we will soon start work on the road….. Ahh, i am just waiting for the transfer of the proposed 100million dollars.
Voices: Tony, sleep na! You dey call something wey go fit kill us all!! Even if you use your mama and papa, combine your destiny that kind money nofit come out!!!
With time the noise died down and we were able to sleep a little till my christian radical tenant lady started her own wahala,
She came out of the verandah walking around praying.
We nicknamed her Choima Jesus ’cause we always pray for light never to come on Sundays morning because that is the day, we will never hear ourselves in the yard.
Choima Da Jesus: I heard the cry of cats and dreamt of witches trying to drink innocent blood of your children, my blood will be too bitter for them. Is it mama Jayjay that is the white cat or mama Chinonso is the white, I don’t want to know. Holy- ! Ghost – ! Fire – !!!
Mama Chinonso: ehhnn…make ona help me beg this woman oh, I nodey fly with Jedijedi yoruba women.

Me: you no know wetin you dey fine.
I got up from the bed, I knew he will never leave that door until I give him the pepper he needed.
I opened the door and saw Sampson smiling like olympic gorilla with his burnt teeth.
I went inside my kitchen and took four spoons of pepper and put it inside waterproof, then gave it to him.
Sampson: youngest landlord, you too much. You be baba.

Sampson: he start scratching his head I nodey like dry pepper oh, abeg help me with fresh pepper, biko youngest landlord!
Me: you wan collect your rent back or wetin?
Sampson: no, I dey craze. Na pepper I need no be rent.
I discharged Sampson after I give him the fresh pepper, I made tea for myself and entered my bathroom. Took my bath with the shower and dressed up.
Got myself together and headed to the shop.
I saw four children of the yard running towards me shouting seriously, they were running as if they were escaping death.
Voices: mommy! Run oh!!
Me: why ona dey run?
I asked them from afar, they didn’t say a word and ran pass me. Nothing was after them from were I was standing I didn’t see anything chasing them. I quickly ran inside the yard with them, I entered my room and bolted the door.
After sometime I overheard them laughing, I came out of my room and saw them playing little ball in the hallway.
Me: Junior, why ona dey run that time?
Voices: April fool! Tell your teacher you are a mugu!!!
I immediately bent down and picked up a slipper, before I even swung my arm to aim them the slipper. They already flee from the verandah like birds on a tree.
I no blame them, public yard children.
I decided not to trek again to brief the tp money, before another mumu go come use me play. I took bike directly to my shop and saw Emeka my boy, Chidimma whose aunt has a restaurant beside my shop sitting on Emeka’s laps.
Wonderple! She got up immediately she saw me and Emeka also stood up, his ercted dck was wrestling with his trouser.
