4. WE CAN WORK TOGETHER
"Guy, how far you na, we dey AJ side, you dey come?" Tomiwa, looked at the phone once again to be sure he'd properly seen the caller ID, Jide! He thought, how could Jide of all people invite him to a church program...
"Hello... Hello... Akintee, you still dey there..." Tomiwa had had enough of this madness so he hung up.
First, it was his 'so-called' guardian angel whom he was beginning to doubt because she behaved more like a demon, always showing up and ruining the moment and now Jide! His best friend and partner in crime was inviting him to church program, he wondered how Jide's conscience could let him think about church.
"Mtchew..." he hissed and slid lower in the armchair.
"Elijah, wetin dey sup na?" B asked and Tomiwa eyed her, he was now suspicious of her every move, he'd fallen in her traps so much and he wasn't ready to be fooled again.
"You don't want to answer me abi, okay, no wahala..."
"Abeg B, I'm tired of you, you always frustrate me, everywhere I turn, I see you, everything I do, I see you, which day you go even free me sef ehn, I am tired jare, now look at me sitting at home, bored to the marrow, no nice babe to warm my bed, just on Saturday, you made me lose two girls, I haven't had sex since Friday and today na Wednesday, B, abeg, I don dey doubt you o, are you sure you're an angel of God sha abi an angel of the devil and you've just come to frustrate me ehn, abeg kuku kill me and end my misery jare abi which kain wahala be dis sef"
"Are you done?" B asked with amusement written all over her face, Tomiwa felt like strangling her but that just wasn't possible so he hissed again.
"You can't strangle me." B said plainly and looked straight at Tomiwa who slid from the chair.
"W-w-w-why would you say a thing like that?" he asked B
"Because that's what you were saying in your mind na..."
"Jesu mi o... So you mean you can read my mind?"
"Before nko..." B replied rolling her eyes.
"I see..." Tomiwa said grinning mischievously and B shook her head knowing exactly what he had in mind, somewhere at the back of her mind, she heard angel Gabriel complaining to the Almighty that she wasn't doing her job well but that was for the almighty to decide so she smiled and decided to humour Tomiwa, at least for her to change his ways, he had to like her first so they could work as a team and then that was how the second phase of their journey began...

5. I LIKE HER
B sat watching her ward, it had been two days since he discovered that she could read his mind and he still hadn't said anything not that she really needed him to speak but she just wasn't sure which of the plans he would execute. Now watching him sleep, she saw the streams of ideas flowing like a river, apart from being really handsome, Tomiwa had enough brains to sweep any girl off her feet but instead, his brain was lying fallow while he used up his father's money on girls. He stirred then lay face up with a smile plastered on his face, B giggled when she realized what made him smile from his sleep 'Baba God, please don't be angry with me, this is the most effective way I can think of helping Elijah." She said, she had a choice to be strict and call Tomiwa to order the hard way but owing to her own nature, the hard way won't do either of them any good.
The party was a huge success for Tomiwa, he'd made out with a girl and promised to contact two others, he was super happy because B had helped, she was his new partner in crime. They'd worked out a routine of communication so nobody would mistake Tomiwa for a mad man again.
"B, which one should I take first?" Tomiwa asked as he settled in the drivers seat of his BMW 2006 3 series convertible, why wouldn't any girl fall for when he was driving one of the latest model car.
"Take that Aisha girl." B said after a moment's thought.
"Ehehn, but the other girl, em, what's that her name again o..."
"Yes, Kelly, she's got more asset na..." B smiled to herself, she had her own plans too, her goal was to help Tomiwa get out of his worldliness and that was exactly what she was doing even though it seemed she was doing the opposite.
"Abeg, who is the angel? Shebi na me dey see her mind." B replied calmly and Tomiwa smiled, he licked his lips greedily and nodded in agreement.
"True, fair point well made, I just hope you don't sly me o because if..."
"Elijah, may I remind you that no matter what you say, your threats are empty."
"Whatever." He replied rolling his eyes and drove home.
The mall was very busy, typical of a festive season, Tomiwa was, as usual, one hour early to his date scanning the area for a girl to scope.
"Elijah, have you seen that babe pressing her phone?" B asked and Tomiwa looked up, he couldn't reply so he just nodded, the girl was the real definition of a damsel, but all Tomiwa could see were her full bust and her round butt tight packed in the shorts she wore, he took two steps towards her but B called him back.
"She's here with someone." She said and Tomiwa gave her a 'how do you know' look.
"Well, I'll advice you to wait and watch." B replied calmly. Tomiwa wanted to hiss but the family beside him would notice so he just stood, his mind was all over the place, he'd suddenly lost interest in the girl he was waiting for, all he could think of was this beauty across the room then she looked up and their eyes met briefly as she scanned the room.
"She looked at me." Tomiwa blurted out and the child beside him jumped, her father held her tightly and led his family away from Tomiwa.
"Shey you know you're acting like a mad man and this has nothing to do with me." B said.
"Abeg free me jare." Tomiwa replied and the guy paying for a smoothie took two steps away from him. Tomiwa had had enough of the torture, he'd been watching the girl for over ten minutes and nobody had come to claim her.
Just as he decided to walk over to her side, his date called and he completely ignored he because she was five minutes too early to be calling him.
"Hi." He said when he got to her side. This beautiful stranger had the most beautiful smile Tomiwa had ever seen, her dentition was perfect, her smile flattered her dimpled cheeks and the fact that her face was bare of make-up shook Tomiwa and he literally rocked on his heel, right there and then, he concluded that her beauty was illegal.
"Hi." She replied still smiling.
"I'm so sorry, I..." Tomiwa was suddenly short of words, B's jaw literally dropped to the ground, how could her own Akintomiwa Elijah Folorunsho be tongue-tied because of a girl?
"Sorry for?" The girl asked innocently.
"Oh, um, so sorry, you look like someone I know, um, sorry for bothering." He said and turned sharply on his heel visibly mad at himself. B decided that the girl would be useful to her so she made plans with her own angel...
Have a blessed weekend, make una go church for Sunday o.
Remember I love you all...

6. SUMMON HER
This episode is really me ranting, just because this is my first time being a guardian angel and all those my seniors think I can't do it!!!
Okay, it was a beautiful Sunday morning and I'd just failed to persuade Elijah to go to church even though I'd liased with his mom's guardian to invite him, he'd still insisted on staying at home because he'd a movie to see. Some angels had spoken to the Almighty about my 'conduct' and HE summoned me in front of a panel.
Almighty: B, I believe you know why you're here.
B: Yes LORD
Almighty: I have watched you so far but being the fair and just God that I am, I have decided to have this hearing.
(B nods her agreement)
Almighty: In order not to waste any more time since all of us have so many things to do, I'll go straight to the point. How many of you, present here and now, take offence at the way B does her job (of the thirty angels present, twenty three raised their hands) Wow! B! Can you see this??
B: Yes LORD, but you are the Almighty, the only wise God, I await your judgement.
Elder 1: B, based on this short hearing, I believe you should know by now that you should put in more effort. (B nods again)
The hearing continued for two earthly hours, I had my mission statement re-read to me but for the wonderful twenty four elders and my precious advocate and ofcourse the supreme judge of heaven and earth, those angels might have replaced me, not that they can but they could have.
Now, I don't really understand this angels o, shebi I am the guardian angel and Elijah is my ward, I believe I understand him better than any of them so trying to teach me the best way to guard Elijah is totally uncalled for. Anyways, let me conclude by saying that your life might be like Elijah's but that doesnt't mean the LORD doesn't have need of you, your guardian angel might just be like me giving you ample time to get spent with worldliness so that by the time you drop it, you won't miss or want to go back to it.
Hello fam, um, so sorry for the short and unstable updates, I'm sorta running low on ideas, basically, on how to connect the different snippets in my head.
Thanks for understanding and remember that I love you all

7. SHE HAS HIS MUMU BUTTON
Towima looked the room over one last time, he'd spent about an hour getting ready, his heart was beating twice as fast as it normally would, he just couldn't imagine that a girl would make him feel so anxious, Tomiwa for the girls, always repping the boys anytime anyday, he was sure his guys would make him a laughing stock if they found out what was going through his mind at the moment. He stepped back from the couch to take another look after arranging the throw pillows for the upteenth time.
"B, oya, help me use your female eyes to scan this place." Tomiwa asked, a note higher than his usual voice and B shrugged. Twenty minutes later, Tomiwa was still pacing up and down his living room, he loved people that kept to time but somehow, this was different, he'd normally have called the girl to inform her of her lateness but he just couldn't do anything now, his anxiety was so large that he couldn't think straight, then it happened, Tomiwa heard 'grrrrrriiiiinggg' of the bell and he froze, it was her!
He rushed out to answer the gate.
"Hi..." he said
"Hi" she replied
"Um, I don't know what to say, I um..."
"Well, you could start by letting me in." She replied with a replica of the smile he'd seen at the mall, the girl was really pretty even while frowning and he just couldn't survive the smile so he stepped aside for her to go in, B whistled at the girl's backside and Tomiwa winked at her, B had been the brain behind this meeting, he really wasn't interested in the magic she'd performed but he was sincerely grateful to her for the very first time.
"... Jeez, Akin calm down, which chic be that sef?"
"Bolly, this girl set die, as take invite am come my house sef, na God hand e dey." Tomiwa said excitedly and the boys roared into laughter, all hailing Tomiwa for another job well done, they already knew the outcome of his meeting without being told.
"But eyin guys yi e calm down (you guys should calm down) we didn't do anything, I don't know but somehow I just had to respect myself with her, I couldn't even mention a hug..." Tomiwa was saying but he had to stop mid-sentence, all five of his friends were staring at him wide-eyed, not believing what he was saying, even B was laughing.
"But Akintee, you fall my hand o, Wetin be this thrash wey you dey talk?" one of the guys asked with disappointment written all over his face.
"Chai..." the second exclaimed "... you wey I dey look up to, you just fall, infact na cut you cut my hand comot abi which kain life be this"
"Ah! Mogbe! Mo daran! Aye mi temi bami, Ah! Akintee don kill me finish, anyways sha, before I say anything, I gat to see this girl." The third said finally and it was done, the discussion was over.
Hi everybody, I know a lot of ya'll would really prefer my head on a platter, please, biko, e jowo, make una no vex, I was about to give up on this thread then Greatcracker and OlufemiWhit came along.
So so, so, so, super sorry for the inconvenience, God bless you guys, happy new month too.

8. YOU'RE MY SERVANT
"Hi Tomiwa" Derinsola said as she answered her phone, she'd been avoiding his calls for a week now, but the guy was just a persistent fool.
"Hi, um, how are you doing?"
"Very well Tomiwa." Derin replied, keeping the disgust out of her voice.
"Um, okay, great, um, I just wanted to know if um, you're free tonight, um, just for drinks, maybe dinner too." Derinsola smiled, she knew she had that effect on guys, but Tomiwa was different because she also liked him, she wanted him to be bold about it.
"Um, Tomiwa, much as I would love too, I'm working late tonight."
"Oh, um, okay, but we could do this some other time?"
"Um, yeah sure, when I'm less busy with work."
"Okay, so um, how is..."
"Em, Tomiwa, I have to go now, I've got a lot on my table, later." Derin cut in and ended the call, Tomiwa stared wide-eyed at his phone, no girl had ever hung up on him, he had had so many firsts with Derinsola.
"B, can you believe she hung up on me?" he asked shocked, angry and afraid aand B scoffed.
"Won't you say anything?" He asked again and B shrugged indifferently.
"B!!!" he shouted this time "... I am talking to you!"
"Elijah please don't raise your voice at me."
"What did you just say?!"
"You heard me Elijah." B said firmly.
"I am your boss, you are my servant and you will do what I say."
"Elijah, please don't take out your frustration on me, is it my fault that Derinsola avoiding you or is it my fault that you don't have a job?"
"You will not talk to me like that!" Tomiwa thundered then someone knocked. "And who is that!" Tomiwa said again and literally jumped to the door, standing in front of him was his maternal cousin Folake.
"Yes, what do you want?" He asked, trying to calm himself.
"I heard you shouting so I came by." She said innocently and B laughed.
"Will you just keep quiet!" Tomiwa shouted looking back at B. Folake was now off balance, she was sure her cousin was alone in the room and had thought he was on the phone but now she was confused, she'd come to spend a two-week holiday with him before she returned to school and ever since, he'd been acting weird, sometimes talking or laughin to himself, she'd even called her sister to suggest that Tomiwa was losing his mind and now, she just confirmed.
"Tomiwa, who are you talking to?" She asked with fear.
"Sorry about that, so you were saying?"
"Um, nothing, I guess you're fine now so I'll just go." Folake replied then an idea came to B, she was going to play a prank on Tomiwa, so she went over to Folake's angel and explained all that had been happening to him. Tomiwa was now beside himself with anger.
"Hey, you, you're supposed to be my guard." He said
"Yeah, I know, I'm just chatting with a friend." B replied without looking at him.
"Oh, so you're going to be sturbborn now abi, and is gisting part of your job description ehn, let me tell you incase you've forgotten, you're to guard me and not gist with an old time friend!" He shouted, B and the other angel looked from him to Folake and burst into laughter, Folake's fear was written all over her face, her eyes were even teary, B shook the other angel and thanked him for his help then turned to Tomiwa.
"Okay boss, I'm done." She said grinning widely and went back to his side while Tomiwa just hissed, he was too angry, maybe frustrated, to notice his cousin's expression, he just went into the room and slammed the door shut. Folake slid to the ground, tears flowing freely down her face, Tomiwa was mad, very mad, she felt bad that she hadn't noticed right from the start and to think his birthday was just a month away, she really had to tell someone before he ran into the street.

8(b) YOU'RE MY SERVANT
Folake sat with tears straming uncontrollably down her face, she was too shell-shocked to sob, she was brain-drained, a lot of thoughts were running through her mind. Meanwhile, Tomiwa was beside himself with frustration, what did Derin think of herself, he decided to send her a stinker, but his thumb failed to hit the send button, he slammed the phone on the bed while B just sat filing her nails.
"B, what do you think Derin wants?" her asked the first time
"... are you also ignoring me? (no reply) B! What is your problem? (no response) you know I feel like shooting you right now. (B scoffed her irritation) B? Okay, alright, I'm sorry I raised my voice but that girl is just getting on my nerves."
"Can I say a thing or two? Boss? Since I'm the servant?" Tomiwa smiled.
"Yes ma'am, you may speak, P.S, you're friend and not my servant, are we cool now?"
"Yeah, truth is Derin can't date you, look at you, you'll be twenty five next month and you don't have a J.O.B and she does, to Derin, you're just a 1. Lazy 2. Jobless 3. Silly 4. Proud 5. Spoiled brat who has no future ambitions, she's a career woman and she's independent too but you have failed to see yourself, truth is, your mum won't be here for you forever so you need to be responsible for yourself, starting now, just talk to your dad, he'll get you a job somewhere and no matter what type of job it is, please don't turn it down."
"You sound so sure about my dad, the man is not that nice, don't be deceived, I almost feel like he's hated me me since I was seventeen."
"I'm the angel so, I'd love it if you trusted me."
"I said I'm fine, Folake is just exaggerating..." Tomiwa was interrupted by his mom's deep sigh, Folake had apparently called his mom and some family members who arrived at his house the next day and his mom and arived Lagos two days after.
"...as far as I'm concerned, this family meeting in my house is over, you can all leave now." Tomiwa said firmly and stood, intending to go to his room but he suddenly decided to take a stroll. The moment he opened the door, his mother screamed.
"E ma je ko lo o! (Don't let him leave!)" and without warning, Tomiwa two strong hands lift him, he exchanged glances with B who, obviously, was enjoying the show, the other angels in the room where also not left out.
"Let me go! Put me down!! Mummy tell them to put me down now!!!" Tomiwa shouted but it all fell on deaf ears till he was held hostage in his bedroom.
"B, what is going on? Why are they acting like this?"
"Well, I think this is necessary since thoughts of Derin has started making you abnormal." she replied and relayed the whole episode to him.
"So this was your plan all along!" Tomiwa exclaimed and laughed deciding to pretend for a while.

*Chenai: Part 1*
I held my breath trying to listen if there was anyone else breathing in the room. Dang, the silence was unnerving. I could hear my pulse loud in my ear; my heart beat a rhythmic rendition of its own, manifesting a new wave of fear. I cried at the self-inflicted circumstance, the abyss of stupidity and careless miscalculation.
My father was a burly man who swore more than a cupful of a sailor’s semantics. Famous for his unexpected backhand slaps that every time I was near him I would involuntarily flinch. He reigned with terror in our home, mercilessly beat us all leaving us with nothing to salvage but self-pity and burning hatred for him. I can hardly remember a day when he was sober or said a kind word to any of us. There was no getting used to his abuse, everyday felt new and raw. The habitual abuse took out a piece of me every single time, as I slowly become an empty shell that existed as a punching bag for a depraved animal.
Mother was worn out; she was all skin and bones. The light that used to flicker in her eyes had diminished. She had the twitch; she would twitch now and then while jerking her head awkwardly to the left. This was acquired after the devil’s incarnate (our father) bashed her head in to the wall. I remember vividly the image of her crumpling to the floor, blood steadily trickling from her nose. I could hear my younger brother Tariro screaming in the background,
“ You killed her! You bastard! You killed her!”
Father did not give a damn, he growled at Tariro,
“Watch your mouth boy, or you will be next.”
With that threat hanging in the air he stormed out and disappeared in to the night. I was numb, I couldn’t move. I sat in that corner whimpering while watching the lifeless body of our mother. He hit her too many times on the head. Six months prior to this incident, a nasty gush on her forehead had been stitched up after she took a blow from a wheel spanner. There is so much head trauma a person can take.
Tariro was the feisty one, contrary to the reserved persona that beaconed from me. We were complete opposites. He on the other hand was generally loud mouthed and snarky, while I was the soft spoken and shy girl. We were each other’s corner stone; we strengthened each other through out the purgatory of our father’s abuse. Tariro once reported him to the police after father had given him an alarming uppercut because he had supposedly ‘eyeballed him.’
“Come here boy, eye-balling your father is utter disrespect! I said bring your scrawny ass over here!”
He bellowed. I pleaded with him.
“Please father he didn’t mean to, forgive him please”
My little brother was only twelve years old. Tariro stood with unwavering stubbornness, glaring at him in open defiance. Which did not help his case at all. Like a deranged man that he was, two long strides towards him and his fist swiftly and squarely met with Tariro’s chin, sending my brother flying across the room. Tariro got up and bolted, running faster than Forest Gump, headed straight to the police station.
To be continued…
