I watched as Asad feigned tiredness and filled me up with lies of the trip, this was the man I loved. He was sleeping with my supposed best friend.
‘You must be tired, though I’ve never been to Porthacourt by road I know it must be terribly far.’
‘It is, I really missed you.’ He said.
He went to take a shower and left his phone. Password protected his phone from the world but not me as I could hack it which I did and went through his messages and calls, they were constantly in touch and Nadia was Leila from all indications.
‘Hmmm dinner is delicious today Asad said as he carefully picked food from his plate in the Asad manner, which means perfection. ‘Did you cook it?’
‘Yes.’ I lied, Mr kweke had made it.
I sat opposite Asad and we eat,
‘Sahiba is calling you.’He said passing my phone which I forgot by his side while serving to me, I got up and quickly collected the phone.
‘Hey who is this Sahiba getting you all jittery.’
‘My friend , am supposed to go see her tomorrow.’ I lied.
‘Who is she?’
‘You don’t know her.’
He looked up, ‘how?’ He asked, cause we existed in a small circle where Asad knows virtually everyone I knew cause it had to be someone who was something in the society.
‘She’s Tanveer’s cousin, we attended the same high school.’ I lied again.
‘Okay at least pick her call.’ He said pointing at the phone that was still ringing.
‘Okay.’ I said and excused myself. Despite the air conditioning I felt hot as I walked to the balcony praying Asad does not notice my agitation.
‘Ghazali I told you not to call, you did, that too several times are you out of your mind, my husband is home.’
‘Ladidi you a smart woman, am sure you can get around Asad.’
‘Get to the point.’
‘Your second consignment is ready, peace park 2pm sharp.’
‘It’s too open, can’t it be somewhere a little more private.’ The line went dead.
‘Where is too open.’ Asad’s voice came from behind, I jolted but composed myself immediately.
‘The venue for our party.’ I lied yet again.
‘That’s all you ladies ever do.’ He said jokingly.
‘Well if someone is earning the money someone has to spend it.’ I added jokingly too.
At 1:55pm, under the hot blazing sun I was at peace park, I had come by a taxi and dressed down to camouflage but any one who knew me would have easily recognized me.
At exactly 2pm Ghazali appeared from no where. ‘I said 2pm not 1:55.’ He said startling me.
‘Does it matter?’ I snapped, he shrugged and handed me the keys to a brand new toyota venza.
‘That one he said pointing towards the direction of a new car. ‘What ever you’re doing my hands are out.’ He warned.
‘Don’t worry, here is your balance.’I said and handed him a leather bag filled with dollars, his ugly face turned into a smile.
‘That will take care of about everything.’ I said and headed towards the direction of the new car.
Since I discovered Asad and Nadia I have been stalking them, I even rented a flat in the estate where Nadia stayed so I could monitor them well, that was where I parked the venza which I use to follow them whenever they went out, when I took the venza A gun was in the glove compartment as part of the consignment.
Asad frequented the place, sometimes I’d call to hear him lie that he was in a meeting. I sent visa applications to 4 different embassies, all that I either did in the house close to Nadia’s or in the spear room in our left wing.
Now I was seating patiently waiting for Asad and Nadia to leave as they usually did at this time, so I can get into the house and start my job.
Finally they left, wonder why he’s always taking her out.
As soon as they left, I walked over to the house confidently using the back door and the key that Ghazali gave me and I got in.
I have never been there, even when we were friends, she was always the one visiting me, I never cared to know about her. Her house was beautiful in a cheap way, am sure she would assume she was living an expensive life with all the money Asad must be paying her for using her body, but all I could see was filth and cheap.
I went to her bedroom, it has to be for the other room had no bed, if they had to do it, it has to be on a bed, the room was very tidy, it showed signs of Asad as everything was in perfect order. I carefully rummaged through her things, her closet was filled with cheap clothing and I wondered if Asad was paying her enough or he was his usual stingy self.
I found where she kept her undies, I brought out a spray bottle from my hand bag accidentally it poured on me, I panicked and rubbed it on my skin. It contained a mixture of hard and illegal drugs Ghazali had supplied me, I had mixed it with water to make its effects slow but sure, I sprayed her undies, her clothes and shoes, with an amount I was sure her skin will definitely absorb, as I sprayed a little amount of it kept splashing on me, next I went to her toilet and injected the same thing into her face wash, bath gel, cleanser and all her cosmetics I avoided the hand wash cause Asad was going to use it.
Her kitchen was next, I wanted to do the same to her food stuff, but I thought what if Asad should eat with her, I checked her fridge there I found orange juice, Asad does not take orange, he was allergic to it, I injected it in every one of the juice pack.
Since I graduated from school, I had never used my knowledge for anything except for pranks, days ago as I mixed LSD and heroin and other incriminating drugs in a bottle, risking my self as bits kept splashing on me and I must have inhaled some too.
I thought of another way to keep tabs on Asad, by planting wireless micro cams in Nadia’s bedroom to see what goes on in there, I was about placing the cam when I heard someone fiddling with the door, the owner of the house was home, what Will I do.
She was already inside, I couldn’t escape now, I heard as her footsteps approached the room. I quickly squatted behind the bed.
Nadia got into her room, and checked herself in the mirror, sprayed herself with more perfume added more lipstick to her lips that were fat already and entered the toilet.
An Idea struck me, she would soon be mad any ways, it wouldn’t be bad if the symptoms start today. I got up and hurriedly wrote on the mirror with her max lipstick. ” you bitch your end is near”, I went back to my position, seconds later she emerged and she saw it and let out an ear piercing scream and ran out.
I quickly got up, took out one of her undies and cleaned it and went back to my position. She came in with Asad.
She walked timidly behind Asad, I stifled a laugh as they both went to the mirror and it was clean.
‘Where is it?’ Asad asked.
‘It was here.’
‘On the mirror.’
‘Nadia it seems you’re loosing your mind.’
‘No Asad it was here, when I came out of the toilet.’
‘What about before you went in?’
‘It wasn’t there.’
‘Are you doing this because of what I said?’
‘No.’ She shook her head vigorously.
‘Look Nadia, you have to understand why am taking that decision.’
She started crying and Asad hugged her, if any of them had looked behind they would have seen me.
They left and I continued what I came for, putting the cams on four corners so as to get a full vantage of everything that went down.
I smiled as I left the house, because I was going to make a movie of Asad and his lover.
Deeper Life School Saga: Accused Student Shares His Side Of The Story
The Trending Deeper Life School Saga, Shalom Omoniyi, one of the students who allegedly bullied Don-Davis Archibong at the Deeper Life High School, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, has spoken up about the incident.
Recall, Don-Davis alleged on Facebook Live that senior students of the school, including Shalom and one Ola, assaulted him severally while he was in their hostel.
He also claimed that he couldn’t report to the school authorities because the senior students threatened to kill him if he reported them.
However, in an interview with Vanguard, Omoniyi, a 13-year-old Senior School 1 student from Ekiti State, said their boarding master, Nseabasi Joseph, only asked him and Ola to help Don-Davis learn how to keep himself clean.
Shalom said Joseph only gave him the task because Don-Davis was his bunkmate for two weeks.

“Don-Davis was my bunkmate. I resumed at the school on November 1, 2020, to meet him as my bunkmate. But I was told that he was removed from the Junior Students Hostel and put in the Senior Students Hostel because the boarding master of junior school, Mr Akpan, was sick.
“We (Ola and I) did not bully him. I did not molest him. The boarding master, Joseph Nseabasi, asked us to make sure he was always clean because when he pooped or peed on himself, he didn’t clean up. And when he smelled, and we asked him if he defecated, he would say no.
“But when we asked him to pull down his boxers and bend down, we would discover that he defecated without cleaning his anus. We would now ask him to go and take his bath or clean himself. And when we noticed that his clothes were smelling, we would tell him to go and wash the clothes, but he would refuse. Instead, he would go and put the smelly clothes in his cupboard.”
The accused minor also said Don-Davis was moved back to the Junior Students Hostel when Akpan returned before the end of the term on December 19, 2020.
He also said that Don-Davis might have been angry that they (he and Ola) didn’t do the things the boarding master, Akpan, was doing for him before he fell ill, noting, “Mr Akpan used to wash his clothes, bathe him. He also helped him to brush his teeth.
“Mr Akpan returned to School before school closed on December 19, 2020. When he returned, Don-Davis was also moved back to his former hostel. He was moved to the Senior Students Hostel because when Mr Akpan was sick, the Junior Students Hostel did not have a boarding master. He was moved out of our hostel on November 15.”
Omoniyi also said a female nurse used to come at 6:30 am to give Don-Davis drugs every day on an empty stomach.
Asked if the School punished him and Ola for allegedly bullying and molesting Don-Davis, Omoniyi said he was never punished.
“Don-Davis reported us to the school principal, (Mrs Ndidi Solomon, already suspended) that Ola and I bullied him. The principal invited us to her office and told us that she was going to punish us. Even when we tried to explain things to her, she refused to listen. But she did not punish us.”
Father to the accused student, Olusegun Omoniyi, said his son has been admitted into the school from JSS1, and that he never received any bad report from the school about any misconduct on the part of his son.
He said he was therefore surprised when Don-Davis mentioned his son’s name in the matter.
He explained that even when the school principal, Ndidi Solomon, contacted him, saying she was going to punish his son, he was not given details of the offence he was said to have committed.
He said, “So, when I saw the story and the alleged involvement of my son, I decided to call my son and ask him why he bullied and molested the boy, but he said he did not do such a thing.
“I cannot force my son to tell a lie. And I also allowed him to make a statement to the police last Thursday.
“I am not worried about anything because I believe that my son is telling the truth and I know the truth will prevail, no matter how long it takes. In fact, the whole story is too shallow for me to believe.”
