My Madam And I-Episode18&19




My Madam And I-Episode18

After that incident, I was given my way intoto in the cell, no one dared cross my path. I became popular and earned the nickname ‘Tiger’ amongst the police men before the prisoners followed.

My folks came often to visit. My mom pleaded with my madam almost everyday to forgive my insolence, yet she refused and swore that I will rot in cell. My ex CO workers even pleaded on my behalf but she threatened to sack anyone who dares confront her with the issue.

I was in cell for four months without trial. My mom did everything in her power to ensure that the case be taken to court, but all to no avail.

Ruth set in, posted on social media with an unknown I. D about me and my madams case. She painted it in such a way that my madam arrested me and plans to kill me with her influence because she doesn’t want anyone to know I impregnated her. And the post got attention, even attracted one Jack, a human right activist who interviewed me and took up the campaign.

As God may have it I was released in the 5th month of my arrest. Thanks to Ruths wisdom.

I and Ruth because very close after that. She forgave me for sleeping with Candy. Candy on the other hand still had her eyes on me, flirting dirty at any chance she’s got. But I tried with all my will power to resist her.

I became kind of popular because of the case, so I was invited to several media houses to give a talk on what happened. I spared no detail. Her image was trodden on.

This made my madam very furious. So one day I saw her car parked at a corner of my street. I immediately recognized it, went closer out of curiosity to be sure , and indeed it was her. She looked out from her drivers side.

“Mike! ” she called , as calmly as possible.

She wore a very big black designer sun glass. She didn’t take it off throughout our conversation.

” what are you doing here? ” I asked, surprised to see her in my neighborhood.

” why are you doing what you’re doing to me Mike ?” she said ignoring my question.

I looked at her in wonder. ” after all you did to me you are asking me this silly question? ” I shot at her.

” please stop this madness” she said, engaged her engine and drove off.

I told Ruth what happened later in the day on phone.

” were you able to get any evidence from her visit? ” she asked.

” no”

” Mike you have to be careful, that was a threat call”

“threat call? ” I repeated.

” yes it is. She’s definitely going to do something to you if you continue “.

” what about my baby and the damage she caused me? I saw her pregnancy today, it’s almost due”

” just wait, when she put to bed you can file for a DNA test. ” she said.

So the next day, I was strolling down my street, going to buy airtime for browsing when suddenly a reckless driver swung into my direction speedily , I narrowly escaped by jumping into a nearby bush. The car drove off raising dust. Passersby approached me thinking I was hurt but seeing that nothing happened to me they all thanked God.


Prince came in the evening of that day, persuading me to accompany him to a party. After a lot of disturbance from him, I gave in.

On our way, few distance from my house two guys stopped us with guns. They asked for our money and phones. We immediately gave them. One of them said: waste them! I pushed the one in front of me before he could use the gun, he moved backwards a little giving me a chance for escape , before he got himself I was off into a nearby bush. I heard gun shots behind me, at each shot I expected to feel something, but feeling nothing, I kept running.

I ran and jumped over a fence into a random compound. The dog in the compound bounced on me immediately I landed, a german shepherd. I held its head anytime it attacked, severally it succeeded in biting me. I reached for a stick and attacked back. The dog held the stick with its teeth dragging fiercely. We were there battling before the owner came calling.

” whose there?!”

” it’s me! Please help! ” I said still struggling with the dog.

” who are you?! ” he asked.

” just someone running from thieves. Please help me?! ” I said, hitting the dog on the head as it attacked.

” who is it dear?” a female voice asked.

” I don’t know” he said .

I knew they weren’t going to do anything. So I ran towards them, they both ran inside, shut their door as I approached them. The dog was so close on my tail so I climbed a car. I was safe there, at least from the dog but still afraid and worried, cause I don’t know whose house am in and don’t know if they had a gun.

My Madam And I-Episode19

I sat on top of the car watching the man as he came out looking at me as though I was going to jump on him, and the lady stood behind the door staring at me with dread. Deep inside, I felt slightly scared of what may unfold .

The gate was opened and the dog that was hovering around the car, made to attack the men who it presumed as intruders. But the man who came out of the house held it by the neck belt and dragged it to its chain.

Strange looking men surfaced, from the look of their dress code, they were definitely vigilantes. They held double barrels, save two who held pump actions.

I was down already, went straight to them to explain myself. One if them seem to be irrational. He gave me a slap and asked me to sit on the floor, which I humbly complied . He was very muscular, wielding the short pump action gun as if it were a toy.

I called out from the floor, yelling my address and calling the names of influential people I know on my street. This made them treat me with a level of respect.


” how did you get here?! ” The muscular one asked harshly .

” armed rubbers took my phone and wallet from I and my friend prince, they wanted to shoot me so I ran. ” I said looking helpless on the floor.

The mention of the name prince, made them exchange glances. Then one tall lanky one said :

” what was this prince putting on?! ”

” blue jacket and a combat trouser ” I said, wondering what was going on.

They went to a side to discuss. Then came back to me and commanded me to stand up. I stood up looking at them puzzled.

One of them asked of the place we were attacked. I told him. Then he crossed his hand on my shoulder, walked a little from the rest and said.

” your friend is dead ”

I spontaneously took his hands off my shoulder. Looked at him as if he doesn’t know what he was saying.

” how? When?!! ” I asked in unbelief.

They didn’t bother to answer me but turned to the to the man who called them to discuss something. Then escorted me to my house.

My mom was so exhilarated to see me, she jumped and hugged me. My hands were colored in dried blood but didn’t bother much , the news of Prince demise shook me to the marrow that all the brouhaha from the nights event became unusually vague.

Prince was buried, my madam put to bed, I was in the village. Yes, village. I had to seek asylum somewhere, away from the preying eyes of whosoever seek me dead.

I was so secluded from the happenings of the town, my current state resulted to depression. I took to weed as my source of consolation. I had a cousin who was an adent smoker, you can never catch him sober.

So one day we were both high and was reasoning deep inspirations under a tree:

” do you know that the world is one? ” my cousin said.

” how do you mean ?” I asked, puffing out smoke.

“look, if you travel to Brazil, you will see your towns man there ” he said laughing out loud.

I reasoned what he said, there is truth in it, the world is indeed one. Again he said :

” money is paper, human beings are disgusting ” he said frowning. ” just paper that we all die for, I won’t kill or die for ordinary paper o, I will wipe my ass with it. Look at your saliva, disgusting! catarrh! Hmm! And someone will still kiss it. Gosh! ”

I noded in agreement.

” life is a penny, but death is a dollar” he said dragging a smoke into his lungs. As he puffed out, he continued. ” you see this tree my brother? ” pointing at the shield above us.” this tree is money! ” he laughed, looked at me to be sure I am with him ” you don’t know? ”

” I know” I said nodding in agreement, sipping from my tie.

” I am very rich because I know I am poor. It’s only a poor man that says he is rich ” he shook his head. ” life is an ocean, I wonder how many can swim to the other side”. He shook his head sadly.

” haven’t you not noticed that the sky is blue? ” I said looking up into the sky.

He looked at me and noded.

” the reason is because sickness is described as blue, we are all sick in different ways ” I said dragging in another smoke.

He nodded in agreement and said ” bros! You’re wise! ” then he looked at me confused and said. But sometimes it’s white, why? ”

” it’s because some people are angels on earth. They are the blessed ones. We are the sick ones. ” we both laughed.

I heard my madam gave birth to a baby boy, who looked some much like me. Why did she keep the pregnancy if she doesn’t want me to father the child? This thought kept me up most nights. Though I wasn’t sure about the pregnancy, but her current reactions speaks more.

So I packed my few clothes one morning and set out for the city before anyone decides to talk sense into me.
