I quickly hanged up the call, Jameelah!
Jameelah!! Jameelah!!! I called out her name
but no response, how do I wake her now? I
carried her down from bed gently placed
her on the floor I put my mouth to her
mouth and I began giving her kiss of life
(Kiss of life mean mouth to mouth
restoration, its the process whereby
breathing is been given to someone who is
unable to breath, engineering students are
in best position to understand this, its not
real kissing ok?)
My phone rang again, this time around I
began to panic than before, I took my
phone and picked the call after short prayer
on my wet lips
Me: ***Pretending as if I just wake*** Hello
Peslady hope there is no problem its unlike
you to call in the mid night what happened
Madam Hadiza: Why did you hung up my call
Me: I was wake by Your call
Madam Hadiza: Pesman Jameelah is in your
Me: ***My heart flew out of my chest that
moment, I began stutter*** In my house
Madam Hadiza: Answer me Pesman
Me: Does anyone told you they saw her with
me *** I was heavily Panting this
Madam Hadiza: No am just asking you
Me: Calm down dear, we are in mid night, tell
me what’s happening, your voice isn’t settle
***I looked at Jameelah who was lying
lifeless on floor***
Madam Hadiza: Pesman I couldn’t sleep am
in trouble
Me: You’re scaring me dear, please talk to
me stop beating around the bush ***I
know very clear that if anything funny
eventually happened to Jameelah all I need
to do is to sneak out that night and headed
to unknown destinations***
Madam Hadiza: I didn’t see Iameelah for
some hours now, yes she used to party but
she never sleep out even if she wanted to,
she used to inform me, have been calling
her number but not going through
Me: Haaaaaa you mean Jameelah is not in
the house? What do we do now?
Madam Hadiza: That’s why I call you dear, I
don’t really know what to do, but Sandra
told me that she said she is going to her
boyfriend house
Me: ***I felt like exploding*** Her
boyfriend? Who is her boyfriend, didn’t
Sandra mentioned his name?
Madam Hadiza: She said she doesn’t know
her boyfriend, but Jameelah told her before
leaving house around 7pm, please do you
know her boyfriend?
Me: ***Looking at Jameelah on the floor and
shaking my head*** Actually I don’t know
any, Jameelah and I are not in talking term
since she caught us some months back,
don’t you know any of her friends that you
can put a call to?
Madam Hadiza: I don’t have any, I think I
need to call police to report her missing
Me: *** My fear increased as I heard about
police, I strongly know in the twinkle of an
eye I will be behind the bar*** its not up to
that Peslady, even if you call station they can
never open case file by this Time, kindly wait
till dawn before you take any action,
constitution state that one can be declare
missing after 24hrs
Madam Hadiza: We are talking of my
daughter not constitution
Me: I know, you see let us do it this way, I
will be coming to your house as early as
possible tomorrow morning, we’ll together
go to station to make a report, please stop
thinking it can only harm you Jameelah isn’t
a kid she can take care of herself, I believe
her phone has run out of power that’s why
it was switched off, you have to go to bed
now and be expecting me first thing
tomorrow morning
Madam Hadiza: Thank you dear, I will be
expecting you please don’t stay too long
Me: I won’t
Madam Hadiza: Thank you bye
Me: Bye ***Hung up***
I looked at Jameelah on the floor seriously
speaking I wasn’t myself that moment, part
of me urged me to call Tasker (My
neighbour) but I decided against it, because
if Jameelah couldn’t make it Tasker would
be the one to reveal me to the whole world,
either I call Tasker or not its obvious I’m
playing with fire, Just then an idea popped
into my head, I positioned her well on the
floor, I reached for the full bucket of water
without minding how watery my room is
gonna be, neither do I’ve what might be
spoiled by water?
I emptied the bucket of water on her, to my
greatest surprise she gave out deep breath
and began breathing so heavily like
someone being pursued by a masquerade, I
rushed to her and raised up her head, I
made her sit while she rested her head on
my lap “Jameelah” I called out her name “Yes
dear” she managed to answer.
Thank you God for saving me from prison, I
know I’m a sinner but you never for once
leave me alone thank you dear God
Jameelah: ***Weaken voice and her eye
kept shut*** What is wrong dear? What
happened? Why am so wet???
Me: Glory be to God in the highest
Jameelah: Am confused tell me what
happened Pesman
Me: ***I helped her sit up*** Jameelah you
fainted under me
Jameelah: How come Pesman? Fainted ke?
***Sat properly***
Me: Yes you did
Jameelah: It must be you hit me so hard or
you hit the wrong place
Me: I don’t know, what I noticed was your
breath were seized, you made me cry
Jameelah: You have nothing to fear I’m
Me: Yes I can see that, but you know what
sacred me most?
Jameelah: What?
Me: Immediately you fainted I received a call
from your mum
Jameelah: You don’t mean it? Hadiza called
Me: Yes she did, she said you’re not sleeping
home and its unusual of you, she couldn’t
sleep she is worried about you
Jameelah: Don’t mind my mum she can too
Me: She has every right to be scared, its
unlike you and you doesn’t inform her you
ain’t sleeping home, she was about
calling police to make a report but I stopped
her, we agreed on going to station together
first thing tomorrow morning
Jameelah: That means you will be in our
house tomorrow morning
Me: That was exactly what I agreed with
your mum
Jameelah: what are we gonna do now, the
girl you’re about to report missing is right
here naked in your room
Me: Honestly I don’t know yet and am scared
Jameelah: Be strong ok?
Me: Smile
Jameelah: Let’s do it this way dear, switch
off your phone, while I call my mum now I’ll
tell her am with a friend that am coming
home tomorrow, you will have to leave here
before me in the morning, I’ll join you in our
house some hours later so, my mum won’t
suspect of anything and you must act
suprise to see me, I pray Sandra never tell
her I’m with you because I told her before
coming here
Me: Your mum didn’t mention anything like
that when I was on phone with her, Sandra
keep that secret with her
Jameelah: I trust Sandra she dare not
Me: Thank God you saved my ass
Jameelah: You too dey scare, you ought to
be a woman
Me: Na you sabi, who will be my witness in
court of law?
Jameelah: Me
Me: Your ghost right?
Jameelah: I won’t die
Me: During the time you fainted what did
you see?
Jameelah: I saw lots of things, firstly
everywhere was blur later it became clear
Me: So, what did you see?
Jameelah: I saw myself in an unknown place
people are many there, some were wearing
white garment, some were with Black while
some were putting on hash colour
Me: ***I began to scared*** What colour
are you putting on?
Jameelah: I was on hash colour, what got
me scared was when I saw a little stain on
some white garment while some were
having pure white garment without any
stain, those with pure white garment were
singing praise song, those with little stain
were also singing same praising song but
not as audible as those who doesn’t have
any stain
Me: ***I let out deep breath*** Continue
dear though I’m sacred
Jameelah: Another set of people in red
garment were crying with hard labour, they
were breaking hill someone is right behind
them with iron rod, he hit those who
doesn’t want to work hard, I saw pain and
regrets on their faces, Pesman another set
of people were in black garment
Me: ***This time around, my room has been
smelling ghost***
Jameelah: Those whose were on black
garment are also receiving same
punishment as red garments but theirs is
somehow different because the person
behind them held fire rod in his hand
Me: I think you need to stop this horrible
story of yours, I can’t take it anymore
Jameelah: let me finish my story
Me: Hmmmm alright, what type of
punishments did you received?
Jameelah: Bad you! You want me to surfer
abi? You think I’m evil?
Me: Not at all, I just want you to tell me
about people on hash colour
Jameelah: People on harsh colour were the
new comers
Me: New comers as how?
Jameelah: Like me now I’m among the new
comers because I just joined them, harsh
colour is the colour I put on from where I’m
coming from, we the new comers were
stood not too far from them, there was a
room by our left side we were called to
enter the room one after the other.
I guess it was a dressing room because
some people who entered there came out
with different type of garments, some came
out with red garment, white, and black
Me: What colour did you put on at last?
Jameelah: I was denied entrance to dressing
Me: ***Shocked*** who denied you
Jameelah: I was about entering the room
when a man shouted at me and chased me
out, he said I wasn’t qualify to enter the
room he also said I was too dirty that I
should go and take my bath, the next thing I
saw was he poured cold water on me and I
heard your voice calling my name
Me: Omg you have gone far only God save
you, when you fainted I began to call your
name but you couldn’t answer until I
you cold water
Jameelah: Are you the old Man that poured
me the water?
Me: I’m the one who poured you water not
old Man, you just seen it as imaginary
Jameelah: You should learn how to handle a
queen gently next time
Me: Do I still need to be warn again?
Jameelah: Anyway you’re saved already, let’s
forget about it, you know the reason why I
came here right?
Me: Yes I do, actually you’re here to celebrate
my success in jamb
Jameelah: Yes but you ended up in making
me fainted so, how far about your
admission processing?
Me: Have started I’ll be feeding you how it
Jameelah: Thank you dear love you
Me: Love you more
Jameelah: Are you serious
Me: I can give you 101% assurance
Jameelah: I trust you Pes, that reminds me of
Don’s pictures, can I check it now?
Me: I think you should call your mum first
Jameelah: Worry less about my mum I got
you covered, I’ve to check out the pictures
Me: *** I know Don to be my rival he must
be the one calling me with private number,
the pictures he sent must have something to
do with my relationship with Jameelah, or
he wanted to blackmail her to have her
back, I was lost in thought***
Jameelah: What are you thinking?
Me: I don’t know what to say about what he
sent, I only believe Don is not for any Good
Jameelah: Are you afraid of him?
Me: ***Laugh*** Why would I? Let see what
he sent
Jameelah: Ok then am even curious to see
the pictures
Me: Login then let see
Jameelah: ***She powered her phone,
switched on data bundle and log on
whatsapp, messages began flowing like
water on her account, she clicked on Don’s
name and looked at me with horrible eye***
Pesman what is this all about?
Me: What are you talking about?
Jameelah: Come and see yourself
Me: I moved closer to her and almost fainted
when I saw what he sent.
