FRIGHT

by Dahmie

I clearly heard the sharp
light knocks on the wooden door to our flat. “Who could it be at this time of
the night, we were not expecting my uncle who usually comes very late and only
returns on Friday night due to his bank work” as I pondered Granny who seemed
unworried about someone knocking our door as late as 8:13pm said “won’t you go
and check who is knocking?” I lifted myself away from the two-sitter couch on
which I had laid and sluggishly approached the door, unlocked it and found
Dennis standing. Dennis was my friend in the neighborhood, he lives two houses
away from mine.



I was shocked to find him
there, he has never visited me at home, neither have I visited him at his
house, we only meet along the roads and at the community school where we play
football every weekend.



He stood there with a
smile on his face and I took a good look at him from his head – his eyes – his
nose – his lips – his neck – his shoulder – his chest – his arms – his hands (I
stopped) I gasped as I saw a black box in his arms, he was stretching it
towards me to receive but I was already lost in thoughts “See this boy o, are
you mad, are you crazy, what are you doing here, why did you bring my Gameboy
(referring to the black box in his hands)” I asked in my head.



“What’s going on there,
won’t you allow the person to come in?” I heard my granny’s voice from where
she was sited. Chai, at this junction, I knew there was no more escape for me,
it’s either I let him in and he personally tells my granny that he came to give
me my Gameboy which I would latter have confess that I stole her money to buy
from a friend at school or just collect it from him there and carry out the
rest myself but before I could conclude within myself he had moved pushed me
away from the way and walked in to my granny. My God My Father, I don die
today…..



“Good evening ma” Dennis
greeted her



“Good Evening my dear,
how are you and your parents?” she greeted and asked



“Fine thank you ma, my
mother asked me to give you this jewelry” he said stretching the black box
towards my granny who collected it, smiled and opened the box to reveal a
shining gold chain. See checked it.



“Alright thank you my
boy, tell her I will call her tomorrow” she told and he walked back to the door
where I stood looking bewildered by the turn out of events.



“And why are you standing
there like a fig tree in a storm” I heard my granny and she was referring to me.
Dennis passed by me smiling mockingly. Am very sure he had the same thought as
to why I behaved the way I did. He was the one I had entrusted the Gameboy to
for the week and the Gameboy had a black body color and the jewelry box had a
very similar shape to it.



He confirmed it the next
day when we met.



I felt pissed but
relieved that my secret is still a secret.
