IMMEDIATELY HE STOPPED SHOUTING, MY PARENTS VANISHED AND EVERYTHING STARTED VANISHING AND A FORCE PUSHED ME INSIDE THE FIRE.
I woke up breathing heavily and sweating under a room conditioned to AC, Ugochukwu was snoring away by my side. I switched on the bed lamp.
I sat aright and rested my back on the bed board, and started tapping Ugochukwu to wake up.
Me: kpakpaka his skin sound guy, wake up… water don over come garri.

Ugochukwu: you sabi read?
Me: you wan insult me?
Ugochukwu: hiaa… Em never reach there, open book of Genesis search for Joseph the dreamer and interpreter, no disturb me again.
He laid back on the bed and I stared at the screen, I hissed and tossed the phone aside and tapped him again.

Me: I dey very bothered, wetin river signify for dream?
Ugochukwu: life na.

Ugochukwu: if them dey eat their fruits, then them be human beings.
Me: across the stream I see my papa and mama wey don die.
Ugochukwu: you wan cross life enter land of death.
Fear gripped me and Ugochukwu hissed then turned on the bed then snored away, I was scared. Ugochukwu don’t really seem serious, what if na one of em mumu pranks?
After countless fruitless thinking I laid back on the bed, waiting for sleep who was hammering his wife to come and take me away from the world of troubles.
After he cu-mmed he took me off and I was gone to the sweetest oblivion of mankind, another stranger dream surfaced.
I WAS WAVING AT LOTS OF PEOPLE WHO WERE CHEERING AND HAILING ME, I WAS ACCOMPANIED BY LOTS OF SECURITIES BEHIND ME. I WAS WALKING ON A STREET TARRED STREET WHILE LOTS OF PEOPLE WERE COMING BEHIND ME, SOME PEOPLE WERE COMING OUT OF THEIR HOUSES JUST TO HAIL AND SEE ME. SUDDENLY THE CROWD BEHIND ME SAW SOMETHING AND TURNED BACK WHILE THOSE PEOPLE WHO CAME OUT IN THEIR HOUSES WENT BACK AND LOCKED THEIR DOORS AND WINDOWS, THE STREET WAS DESERTED AND I WAS ALL ALONE. I STARTED KNOCKING ON SEVERAL DOORS NONE WAS OPENING FOR ME.
I opened my eyes and saw Ugochukwu staring down at me, his back is on the bed board. His arms hugging himself.
Ugochukwu: which kind political weed wey you dey smoke dey give you all these inspirations of dream?
Me: guy, I dream another serious one again, I need interpretation.
Ugochukwu: Joseph have come to guest house, you better stand up oh! hungry dey connect high tension for my body.
Me: my life better pass food oh.
Ugochukwu: idiot mumu, elephant of no bumbums, I don go hustle my belle oh. Dey there make hunger dey trick you with dreams.
I stared at Ugochukwu as he got up from the bed and went inside the bathroom, I started contemplating on what he just said. Abi na hunger dey do me this thing or na fear, or na revelation.
My stomach come give me answer as the worms in my stomach made some noise for me to know that they needed something to feast on.
I sighed heavily and ordered for meal from the Guest House telecom, my phone started ringing and I picked it.
Me: good morning, baby Stella.
Madam Stella: that one sound sweeter, wetin be your inspiration?
Me: your beauty and your generosity dey high me like weed.
Madam Stella: naughty boy, I will send in those State Excos later in the day. The election start by 11am bah?
Me: yes, the primary start by 11am.
Madam Stella: start celebrating your victory, sugar boy.
The call ended and fear left me. I got up from my bed and took the brush I bought yesterday night, went inside the bathroom when Ugochukwu came out.
I brushed my teeth and took my bath, I came out of the bathroom and find Ugochukwu having tea and bread.
Me: Ugo, na wetin this people bring as breakfast be this?
Ugochukwu: you for tell them wetin them suppose bring, you go say breakfast as if we from oyigbo.
I took the sofa opposite the table and joined him, an idea entered inside my head.
I picked up my phone.
Ugochukwu: who you wan call?
Me: I wan send message to those people wey chop my money.
Ugochukwu: give them threat wey go make them forget food till them vote you chuckling
Me: sure na.
I typed a brief message “YOUR LIFE OR YOUR VOTE?” I sent a group message to all the excos and switched off the phone in case they want to call.
Ugochukwu: bad guy! You be machiavelli I swear.
Me: that man no sabi politics reach me.
My phone beeped signaling me that message has entered my phone, I opened my inbox and read the message. I was shocked fear returned and took my voice, I opened my mouth but couldn’t voice out. The shock registered on my face was terrifying.
Ugochukwu: wetin happen?
I gave him my phone and the door opened, the two bodyguards stepped in. Seeing the mood we are.
Jack: sir, wetin happen?
Ugochukwu gave Jack my phone to read the content of the message.
