Episode 23
°°Do you dare me°°

Muna opened the door hingely and was quite surprised by the two figures in front of him
How come
Tamuno was standing outside with a brazen face
As if he was here to fight
Next to him halima stood with one hand on her hip
From the Look on her face one could easily tell that she wasn’t pleased with the fact that this Tamuno guy followed her here
Not sure what to make of the situation
Muna opened his mouth and quizzed tamuno
“Why are you here”
He didn’t want to sound offensive
But the sight of tamuno really pissed him off
Why the hell should one of juma’s boy be at his doorstep
He should know better…
Juma’s people and cleansweep don’t see eye to eye…
Worst of all out of school
Its like making a wolf and an alsatian dog breed stay in the same room
**what the hell was he thinking coming here**
Halima noticed the heated tension between the two as they glared at each other intently
She quickly stepped in
“I was just on my way here,,,so we could work on the project,,,but I kinda bumped into him on the way,,,and since he is the third wheel of our team,,,he insisted he come with me”
She blurted out
She wondered why they both looked at each other that way ,,,
Not sure what exactly was the thing they had between them she continued
“Pls just let us in first”
Tamuno snorted
“Wel his manners didn’t seem to register that fact”
Muna was about to retort…
Then he looked down and saw that he had been standing at the doorway all this while
He revved up
Then spaced the door properly
Letting the both of them in
They stepped in
And went straight to his living room
He closed the door
And bolted it from inside
He then walked off to them
He gave halima a puzzled Look
Halima took his hand and led him to a corner where Tamuno wouldn’t be able to hear them
“We were not supposed to work on anything today” Muna said
“Yeah,,,I know um”
“Then what are you and Mr bozo over there doing in my house” he said again almost loud
She became sullen
“Don’t talk like that Muna,,,it wasn’t my fault,,,I just wanted to see you so badly,,,that I decided to surprise you by coming,,,but then he came out of nowhere ,,it seemed as though he had been following me”
Muna widened his eyes in amusement
“He was following you?”
He asked her in annoyance,,and without waiting for an answer
He started moving towards Tamuno in anger
Halima quickly stopped him
“Muna hold on,,,whah ,,,where are you going”
He looked at her
“To teach that pervy stalker a lesson”
She flinched and held his shirt
She couldn’t understand why there was so much bad blood between the both of them
She held his shirt tight and drew nearer to him
She had planned to see Muna today
And have a nice time with him
She didn’t want anything that would ruin his mood
Or turn him off
Cos she needed him badly
She needed that affection
That care!
He sighed
“You said you planned to see me,,,what is it about,,,nothing serious?”
He queried her
She drew in her breath
Then got ready to expose to him
“Yeah I did,,,actually i-”
She stopped and looked up at his face
“The thing is ,,Muna I really-”
She got fascinated and drawn by the way his piercing eyes
Peered into hers
He had so much intensity in his eyes she didn’t know when she drew closer
Perhaps to take a closer Look
Perhaps to lock lips
Who knew
But the magnetism was strong and uncontrollable
She got drawn closer
Their faces were so close together
Tamuno’s voice cut them off
“Like are we going to do something or just stand all day moping around”
His voice had a sting of annoyance in it
They both adjusted and went back to the living room
Since this was supposed to be another project event
Muna went into his room and brought out some materials
He placed them on the floor
And beckoned they all sit around
The look of dissaproval never dissapeared from Tamuno’s face
He kept giving Muna side stares
They began to work on the finishing touches on their project
Although Tamuno hardly gave much contribution cos he hadn’t laid a finger on the project since it started way before
He noticed the way halima and Muna flowed together as they all worked
This annoyed him the more
They would go over a theory and halima would wait and tease Muna about already knowing the answer
This would make them both chuckle and infuriate him the more
He kept giving Muna death stares
But what fumed him
Was that Muna seemed restrained and unbothered at all by his presence
This really ticked him
They went on and on
Tamuno just kept quiet and observed closely
Aafter long hours of flipping through materials
And working out theories
The project seemed tact and ready for submission
The only thing left was
The outro
They rounded up
And it was already late
Time to leave
Muna checked the wall clock
He stood up
Gave halima his hands for her to get up
She stood up
But peered into him
“Are you that eager to send me away?’ She peered into him
He shook his head
“Nah,,,but the rules the nightguards have is,,,all gates,,,or in this case-”
Pointing to his door
“All doors must be locked and bolted before 7:30 for safety reasons”
He playfully tipped her nose
Halima smiled and nodded
Something ticked off tamuno’s nerves
She never smiled like that for him
Let alone feel so hAppy when he touched her
He stepped and grabbed
Halima by the wrists
“Come on,,,its late let’s get going”
She winced as his fingers bruised her elbow
“Ouch! ,,hey ,,,what’s your rush,,,go home if you intend to ,,,we don’t live in the same house,”
She yanked her hand free from his grip
And rubbed the spot
Tamuno had an enstranged Look on his face as he peered at her
She turned to Muna and said
“Pls I’m a little pressed,,,can I use your bathroom for a while”
He nodded
Then motioned her the spot to head to
He and Tamuno then stepped outside to excuse her
And possibly wait so as they could get going
As they stepped outside
Muna felt the cold night breeze
He breathed it in like a drug
He always loved the cold
It was something he and his brother shared in common
Apart from a long list of other things
While he was still reminising
In like five minutes gone by
His shirt got pulled by the collar and yanked to the wall
Tamuno grabbed him and pinned him against the wall
**of course**
Muna thought
Very typical of these guys
He had been expecting this all day
What took so long
Tamuno pushed his face to him in sn enraged manner
Muna could feel his hardbreathing
So predictible
They must always result to their fist
Tamuno’s voice was rough and croaky as he spoke
“Now listen to me you you little biracial punk,,,that kele in there is mine,,,all mine and not shareable ,,you understand”
(is it the fact that biracial people tend to get insulted because of their race or,,,is it just fun to slap it back on their face,,,or is it mere jealously,,,I don’t know why you’ll tend to hear that “minx” word whenever such individual is involved in maybe an argument or little squabble)
Muna sighed
He looked down at his collar
Where Tamuno gripped roughenly and looked back at tamuno’s face
He calmly asked
“Who do you think you’re gripping by the collar”
Tamuno roughened him again against the wall
Muna scoffed and shook his head
Tamuno ragingly asked him
“Do you think this is funny you stupid little punk!!,,,I will wooze you right here now,,,if you joke around”
Muna started to loose his patience
This was a new shirt
And this idiot was busy giving it new designs
He coarsely said
“Take your hands of my shirt ,,,!”
Tamuno laughed sardonically
“Are you kidding me,,,is that how they thought you to plead”
“oh. ,,,that’s right,,,you have no parents,,,nobody ever taught you manners”
Muna glared at him directly in the eyes now and simply said
“I wont repeat it again,,,take your filthy hands of my shirt now!”
Tamuno got ticked a little…
But what the hell
He had had enough of the whole thing
He wanted a piece of Muna
He angrily gripped his collar again and tried roughening him against the wall
Tamuno decided to teach Muna a lesson
he pulled out a small dagger from his back pocket
“oya ,,tough guy,,,what do you think now eh”
he waved the knife in the air across muna’s face for spite
the blade looked really sharp
as it glistened under the weak street light
from the corner of his eyes
Muna noticed the figure which had been sitting at the pavement quietly
quickly stood up and started walking towards them
he revved in recognition of the indivudual
Muna contemplated wether smashing tamuno’s face right now
Or just leaving it to the guy
He decided to do the latter
Instead he laxed
Tamuno got so infuriated by his calm and relaxed attitude
**who the hell does he think he is**
He angrily released one collar
And tried to drive the dagger into him
But as he raised his hand
He got stopped!
Someone held his shoulders from behind and pulled him away from Muna
He effortlessly swung Tamuno to the ground
“Now that’s about too far ,,isn’t it,,” Tobi rhetorically asked him as he went and pulled him up to his feet
The shocked Look on Tamuno,’s face was no mistake
“You like dragging people by the collar eh,,,let’s see how you taste your own medicine”
Tobi pulled him up by his collar and lurched him towards a wall
The cry of pain was almost laughable
“Ahn ahn why now ,,,this small thing ,,,shebi you’re busy forming macho boss the other time” Tobi teased him
he grabbed the dagger from tamuno’s hands and flung it away
“rule number two,,,I despise weapons vs bare hands”
(yep,,,no matter the odds,,he does!!)
He then dragged Tamuno and smashed him against some empty waste bins
Tamuno writhed around the ground
Tobi sighed
“Awww,,,come on get up my friend,,,I’m not done yet” he mocked him again
Muna just watched in silence
He knew he was already too late when he gave Tamuno a second warning
Tobi had been looking for a chance to get his hands on one of juma’s boys. ,,he could list a few things he had a grudge with them
Who wouldn’t
muna could have saved Tamuno from this embarrasment if he had stopped him himself
He gave tamuno a chance to back off but he refused
Now its no longer his issue
**its between you and cassanova** Muna thought in his mind
Tobi continued his assault on Tamuno
Soon muna wondered what was keeping halima so long
He decided to go back inside and check
Tobi dragged a weak and bruisedTamuno up again
He snapped his fingers over tamuno’s weary eyes
“Don’t pass out on me o,,,we need to talk to someone right now”
Tobi pointed down the road at a man dressed in an atire
The man had a rifle slung over his shoulders
And a large torchlight in hand
“You see that nightguard over there,,hmn,,,let’s go to him ,,,you’ll explain yourelf as to why you were molesting an individual of these streets by this time of the night”
He noticed Tamuno dulling his eyes as his head staggered around in half unconciousness
“Hey ,,hey,,I said no fainting o,,,are you deaf”
Tobi sarcastically broke into a song
/eeh,,no fainting baby,,ehh/
/eeh no dulling baby/
/I sAy,,eeh no fainting baby/
/and don’t pass out baby/
“You’ve heard that patoranking song right,,,attaboy,,now lets go before you start to ask me question like “WHO OFF LIGHT”!”
Tobi dragged him off
Tamuno was half walking and half leaning on Tobi
He could barely make out two plus two at this moment
…from inside the house
Halima stepped out of the bathroom
She walked over to the living room but as she went she passed through muna’s room
It was nice and well kept
She unknowingly stepped in and realised that the place had his scent
A very nice fruity scent
Her eyes wandered to the bed
And her heart skipped a beat
she wondered why
She didn’t know what to make of it
she quickly took her eyes of the bed
She stood and stared down
She leaned on the wall still admiring his room
From the casual wears he kept in a labelled section
To the stage wears he kept in another section
He had everything in proper sync
From shoes to hats
To materials
Both formal and informal
All in perfect sync
She wondered how someone who grew up alone
Was so well mannered
So well kept
And so dreamy
She blushed at the last thought
His belongings were so natural
Small simple,,,and nstural
Everything looked just like Muna
“Well ordered!”
She said outloud
She didn’t realise when she said it out
Then suddenly
“What’s so well ordered?”
Muna ‘s voice rang through the air
She froze when she realised him
Standing across the corridor looking at her with that same intensity
As before
If it was possible to define
It would be an understatement as to what she was feeling right now
“So what did the man say”
Tobi shrugged
“Well in his exact words”
“Na so alhaji pikin dey do,,,abeg make una no vex”
Muna chuckled at the way Tobi mimicked the night guard
the man had let off Tamuno on a warning
Tobi thought it was too easy
he joked with the man like
“but baba,,,u suppose empty two bullets,,for him leg na,,hin no go waka kom here again”
the man had laughed at off
and sent Tamuno away
sfter giving him some strict warning
They had sat down chewing snacks while watching another shippudeen episode
“Is it that you guys always have light or-”
Muna looked at him and queried
“Yep,,don’t you guys”
Tobi chuckled
“If you could call five hours a day light,,,then yeah ,,,that’s all we got”
Muna forgot to ask then the thought came to him
“You said something about Dre,,,cos I know its unsuall for you to just walk over here… unless somethings up”
Tobi nodded
“He sent me to come over and ask you for convenience,,,he can’t stay home tonight cos of-”
Tobi turned and observed muna’s facial expression
he watched muna’s jaw tighten
as he spoke
He continued
“Anyway ,,,he said pls,,don’t lock your door yet ,,he’ll be here soon”
Muna sighed
If there was anything that pissed him off more than mr sam…
It was definitely this…
Why won’t Dre just listen to him
Just one simple move
Muna hoped one day
Atleast Dre would see reason and move out ,,atleast for the time being
He needs space
Muna knew it
And he knows Dre does
**but Dre is just too annoyingly selfless**
Muna sighed again
His eyes were on the tv but his mind had wandered off
He could barely make out the screens on the tv
At this stage
Muna was sure nothing else could surprise him again
Nothing at all
Or so he thought
A quick knock came on the door
He and Tobi exchanged looks
Who could be knocking by this time of the night
Was Dre already here?
They both went to the door to find out who it was
Tobi massaged his knuckles and bundled up his fist
Getting ready incase if it were some unwanted individuals
(As in ,,gentlemen of the night)
Muna curiously opened the door
And once again
He was greeted with another surprise
He took back his words earlier when he said that nothing could surprise him Anymore
This was really unexpected
“Good evening ma” he greeted her
mBowing a little
Sonia’s mom smiled
Brightly as she saw muna’s handsome face
“Oh my beautiful son,,,how are you this evening”
“Very fine ma” he replied
Tobi simply snorted as he stood beside muna
but then
His facial expression changed when he saw sonia cowering behind her mum
He excitedly cried out
**gosh!! Tobi!!**
Sonia inwardly complained as Tobi gave away her position
He was still smiling sheepishly
As sonia glared at him
she thought about strangling him right then
but with Muna around
she’ll probably make a fool of herself
She’ll get him later
There is something else now
Muna now had a raised eyebrow as he noticed sonia behind her mum
Sonia’s mom brushed her from her back towards her side then said to
“Erm,,,Muna my son,,there is something ,,we need to discuss about”
Again not sure how exactly to react…
what could be so important that it can’t wait till tomorrow
well it was still
intriguing to know
he curiously nodded
Muna spaced the door properly
Allowing them to enter
What next?
