I sat down feeling very flattered, i just couldnt say anything cos they kept ranting, Chuks left were he sat, came to where i was, anchored me(brotherhood shaking) hailing as he did,
”make una bring Beer and pepper soup for my manche” he shouted,
I swear i was feeling so honoured, before i knew it everyone started leaving their seats, one after the other, just to have the Brotherhood pleasantries with me, when they kept doing that, it got my Shy, as the weird guys people just sat where they were, watched and laughed, what Chuks and the rest did, drew attention of the others who came to drink at the Bar, they wouldnt understand, with the respect they gave me, a stranger there would think i was the Capon.
”Oya clear road for our future Capon in the making” Perry thundered,
Just like how it was during the fight, everyone started dropping lines one after the other hailing me, all i did was smile, i was quiet, very very Shy.
As a Young Fine Girl was bringing a bottle of beer and a plate of Pepper Soup that seems to be mine, Mountain D stood up, ran to her, collected the tray from her,
”wey you, gimme make i serve am by myself, you know who em be?, na my guy” he said,
He took it from her, brought and placed it in front of me, i was just busy laughing, i understand why everyone was giving me the warm reception. I opened the drink, took the label off, turned it backwards and sticked it back to the drink (if you no belong, no try am for public oo, cos your beating no go get mate), i took the drink with my left hand poured it into a glass, still drank it from the glass with my left hand,
”Ruggeeeeeeed You” Solo thundered,

The weird guy wasnt with us, he should probably be somewhere, treating himself, i noticed his Capon had been watching me, i didnt care what he had in mind, everyone was drinking and eating peacefully together like a family, it was just to make Peace reign, as funny as it was, we could drink like that that day, and end up being at war the next day, anything at all could happen, what everyone had was in their mind, the boyant face was just a mere disguise.
”guy which level you dey” he asked from where he sat(the weird guy’s Capon), he was sitting next to Chuks,
”baba 200level” i answered,
”Before you show dem dey reason your matter, how you take dey tidy things, your mind, your stubborness, i dey impressed” he said,
” Nah my Boy, nah my bring am up” Chuks said,
”Baba thank you sir, i dove for you(bowing my head down in respect)” i said,
”I dey like guys wey dey get mind, and wey no dey look for trouble, but if you pinch them, you go bleed for the pinch, my boys dem say upon wetin dem do you, say you no still gree go down, to the extent even when your men dem show, you no take advantage of am, you still use your mouth say you wan fight timber one on one, if nah me, i no get dat time, groundnut go don enter person leg tey tey, i reason am, guy i respect you for that, that makes you a man” he narrated, as everyone kept quiet listening to him talk
He stood up with a glass of drink in one hand, stretched out the other towards me for a shake, i stood up immediately, bent my head down, and reached for his hand, giving him a very firm shake, everyone began to clap, shouting, ranting in slangs, some were banging the table,
”abeg as we don come together jollificate, make the matter die like that, my Boy Bleep up, una own boy use em hand take care of am” he added,
”Nah my Boy nah, nah me rugged am, nah we make am” Chuks kept shouting,
I was honoured, we stayed together drinking and gisting till about 8pm, i had taken three bottles of beer and two plates of pepper, i needed to start going home.
Just as i was pondering about going home, my phone began to ring, i took it out from my pocket, it was Cynthia again (this babe no dey call me like this before oo, wetin dey xup, i said to myself), picked it up,
”Hey!, whats up” i asked,
”dont tell me you are not home yet” she asked aggresively,
”not yet, i cant be home and not call you now, am i mad?” i asked, she laughed,
”watch the time, you know there’s curfew in this town, i want you home safe for me, i have already had enough heart attack today” she said,
”ok mummy, am on my way home like right now, i ll call you as soon as i get down from the Bike” i said,
”ok, please leave right now, am waiting for your call to tell me you are home” she said,
”i will, trust me” i replied,
”take care” she said and hung up.
After the call, i started reasoning, Cynthia wasnt calling me like this before, i remembered the phrase ‘i want you home safe for me”, this is getting interesting, after our midnight call, i ll really know whats up.
We all left there same time, i was lucky to get a bike so quick and headed home.
