Episode 31
••Heart Break••
°°we Were more than brothers°°
they say your darkest hour comes before your time
they say there are some bonds that can never be broken
they say there are some individuals that are too strong to feel hurt
but during these entire week
the cleansweeps felt nothing but pain
Rand high school felt nothing but pain
every individual who ever came across the philanthropist Andre Okon felt like a part of them was missing
standing under the drizzling rain
hundreds of people Dressed in black watched in sorrow as dre’s coffin got lowered into the earth
the divine legacy gets buried into the earth
Tobi placed an arm over Sonia’s shaking shoulders as she sobbed uncontrollably
it was still unbelievable…
her pillar was gone
her big bro
her right hand shooter
her defender
this was one of those moments one wished to be in the place of the other individual
the tears flowed freely on mike’s eyes as he consoled a crying john
Tobi looked with complete horror
as the sand was being poured ontop of the coffin
all around the cemetery different individuals were present
friends and strangers alike
everyone heard that a gem was gone
everyone could be sighted
except Muna
I was wondering where Muna was
“probably he couldn’t bear to come”
yahya whispered to me
but I had seen him already
across the other side
he was completely Dremched
as he stood isolated without an umbrella
his wet hair fell across his face in a pitiable sight
there was no single trace of tears in Muna’s face
he wasn’t crying
neither did he looked shocked
muna’s expression was unreadable
(even I couldn’t discern it at that moment)
but I know that if anyone
felt a deep rage
it had to be Muna
no one else can feel the depth of dre’s loss like Muna
the priest read the final funeral rites and sealed the grave
with the sign of the cross
“dust you are and dust you shall return”!
he closed the bible and gave a few sermons before ceremoniously leaving the spot
slowly one by one,,, everyone started to leave
the hundreds declined to a score
until only the cleansweeps were left
Mike was talking with dre’s grandmum
as Tobi led sonia to a spot to sit
she was still sobbing lightly
Tobi did his best to console her
but her sniffing was uncontrollable
he soon said
“soso is enough,,,stop crying now,,,”
but she continued whimpering
“if you are crying like this,,,I’ll start crying also,,,or do you think I’ve not been holding it”
his voice was shaky as he spoke
sonia couldn’t help it
the pain was unbearable
Tobi then took her face in his hands and said
“tell me,,, if Dre was here right now,,,would he like to see you cry”
she whimpered and shook her head
“then Tobi then said
“and what will he say if he caught you crying”
her voice was croaky as she said
“c’mon,,,c’mon.. stop-,,,stop crying yo- you… you big baby”
she bursted into another fit as she remembered the way Dre used to talk
Tobi pulled her into a tight hug as his own tears flowed freely
the drizzle couldn’t help matters
they were crying like kids
from the corner of eye
sonia noticed a shadow pass by
it was faint
but there was familiarity in the movement
it caused a white rose to pluck off and fall to the ground
she couldn’t understand it tho
they ended the session
Mike helped dre’s grandmum home
as Tobi..john and sonia left the spot
Every student gathared in front of the assembly hall to listen to the principal speak
the man stepped on the podium and started
“students,,,it is with great greif that I stand before you today,,,for yet again the hydra headed menace,,,known as death has taken away from us another beloved
,,,Andre okon was a boy like no other,,,he was a son,,grandson,,friend,,,and brother,,, a talented joyous kid who planted smiles on everyone he came across”
: “I am still dealing with the shock of this news ,, honestly such a loss cannot be replaced,,, I have charged the police to spare no effort in uncovering the perpertrators of such dastardly act,, iassure you,,,this individuals would be brought to justice,,”
He ended the speech and asked everyone to go back to classes
A one week break was given to sympathise with the friends and families so they could mourn in solitude
It was
During this period,,
That Muna got arrested
The thing is ,everyone knew what they felt after Dre died
Everyone understood themselves
Everyone understood their pain
But not Muna
He had a complete expressionless Look as he walked around
He was terribly unkept
He was like a zombie
He didn’t know what to do
He couldn’t cry
Couldn’t eat
Couldn’t sleep
His anguish was killing him slowly
Muna found himself in the police station the other day
After the officers confirned that he had single handedly beaten a man to pulp
He was walking down the streets in his usual zombie manner
When he mistakenly stepped on the feet of a street thug by the road side
The man gave him a deafening slap
And was shocked to see that Muna did absolutely nothing
He said nothing
And did nothing but just continued walking like a robot
The man and other guys joked at him and one of them said
“Maybe em mama no giv am milk dis morning hehehe”
Like a flash
Muna descended on the man
He released different blows
Anyone who tried to disengage him met a degree of his iron fist
Luckily a patrol car was passing by
And the officers got down and clobbered him with their baton
They arrested both of them
And other men around they could catch and took them to the police station
As the cleansweeps started at him as his hand cuffs were being removed,,,they couldn’t understand why his eyes were so lifeless,,,he didn’t even mind the bruises on his face
He simply stepped out of the cell and passed by them without saying a words
Tobi’s uncle was the one who took care of the bail procedures
They let Muna go cos of he was a first time offender
While tobi’s uncle was busy filling some papers
The guys stepped out of the police station and saw Muna standing outside
Probably waiting for a taxi
Mike walked up to him and started talking
She walked through an alley and crossed over to the side of the road
Sonia was really tired as hell
School was hectic today
It had been really hectic ever since they resumed
Teachers wanted to catch up on thins they missed during the one week holiday
She passed by the road that led to muna’s house
As she was about to reach the house
She saw muna’s door push open
And he stepped out absentmindedly
Sonia was puzzled at the way and manner he walked out of the house
He didn’t even close the door talkless of locking it
This attitude and manner he had been acting was starting to worry her
She just wished he would let out all his feelings
Instead of bulging up his entire anguish within him
Bills followed Muna down the road wagging its tail excitedly
Muna seemed less concerned walking down the road on his own
Sonia thought about calling out to him
But she changed her mind
Perhaps to let him have a clear head
He needs to sort things out
Although he had gone back to his cold and distant ways ever since the accident
He never talks to her anymore
Even if she asks him anything
He hardly replies
He was like a walking zombie
School had resumed
But he didn’t resume
Sonia wished he could open up
It would help if he would just talk
If not to her
Then to someone else
She stepped into the house
And refreshed herself
She took her bath
Then prepared something for both of them
She soonsettled on the couch and was about dozing off when
Noises from outside startled her
She recognised bills barking immediately
She wondered how come Muna was back so soon
Although she was expecting him to step into the house but he didn’t

She decided to go out and meet him herself
What next?
