The other side
Chapter 16
Day 15

It was the first time in forever; the impossible was about the happen, the living and the dead, in a duel.
Siera and been tossed to the far end of the apartment, thrown over the dinning table to land with a loud thud.
Jack was going to leap in shock but Julie was by his side to sooth him.
"It's ok Jack, go back to sleep, I'm trying to squash an insect"
He believed her and soon he was off again.
"Julie! You bastard!"
Siera fumed in wrath, she had successfully screwed through her bag to find the whip, there is no way she would miss this time.
"Come out here if you've got the guts!"
Julie hissed and took off to stand before Siera.
Quickly she lashed the whip but Julie was quick to teleport before it got to her.
Siera laughed wickedly now, she felt in charge and called out to Julie
"Come out here you bastard!"
"Siera, I loved you more than myself"
Julie was nowhere visible but her voice reverberated in the apartment.
Siera stood looking around nervously.
"And you threw it at my face, you murdered me Siera, what did I ever do to you?"
The sudden breeze that washed over Siera made her shiver in fear and she trembled even more.
"Come out come out you bitch!"
Her voice seems to progress to an higher volume, she tightened her hands on her whip.
"You are dead bitch, so stay dead!"
There was silence, and for a moment Siera was beginning to think she had spurned Julie for good.
But then a sudden rush of wind picked Siera off the ground and smashed her against the wall with force...
She winced in pain and Julie was there to tame her.
"Oh don't scream now love, I'm not going to kill you yet...I'm only going to break every bone in your body, bit by bit..."
Siera tightened grip on the whip tried to fling it at Julie but her hands were weak now. She coughed from the backache she felt and sprout out blood.
She muttered but Julie wasn't done, she couldn't touch the whip, but she was going to make sure Siera had no hands to touch them either.
She picked Siera up and held her against the Ceilings, twisting the joints that held her hands together... Siera screamed in pain and pleaded but Julie wouldn't listen.
"The reason you had me the first time was because I still had a soft spot for you...but now, now I just wanna see you bleed"
She turned Siera upside down and took hold of the joints holding her legs together.
"You won't be walking for a long time Siera"
She muttered and loosed her joints with a twist.
"Arrrgghhhh! Julie please"
Julie was getting the thrill now, she got a long cane she had in store and laid Siera on her stomach.
"What happens to stupid kids?"
Siera's tears were an hindrance to give an answer.
"Sorry sorry, they get punished"
Julie wasn't satisfied with her answer, she contemplated for a while before she shook her head in disagreement.
"Nah, they get flogged!"
With that she thrashed Siera's butt till she was certain Siera won't be able to sit for a long time...
Now that she Siera could barely talk, Julie helped in the transportation bill.
She took hold of Siera and appeared in her office at Prada designers.
"There Siera, you owe me, and don't think I wouldn't kill you, just that the gatekeeper wouldn't let me"
She watched Siera wince in pain, blood dripping from both her nose and mouth, swollen face and ass. A sudden feeling of little satisfaction beamed her face and before she turned to go, she didn't fail to wish the best.
"Get well soon, dear Siera"
Jack was up now and Julie was nowhere visible. He could see the drops of blood that littered the floor, a sudden rush of fear gripped him but he composed himself.
He got a mop and attempted to clean off the blood when Julie showed up.
She called with a smile.
He stopped to see her smiling at him.
"Julie what happened here?"
He was direct with the question but it didn't stop her from smiling still.
"Let's just say I saved you from..."
Julie paused when she noticed the gun beside the cushion...
"Oh hold on, she left her property"
"You mean Siera?"
Jack asked but Julie was off again. He spotted the whip on the dinning table, the chairs dissipated, the flower vase that stood on his centre table was broken...he didn't need a soothsayer to tell him another battle had transpired.
Julie was back and he felt it.
"You know my apartment has been the wrestling ring for you ghosts"
He said as Julie took charge and restored the apartment to glimmer.
"Where is Siera?"
He didn't know if he should ask, but he had to.
The smirk on Julie's face connoted one thing, Siera was in a bad shape.
"You killed her?"
"Nah, Bernice wouldn't let me...I flogged her, as forewarning, she'll stay away from you now"
Jack was quiet for a while, they both had a lot to say but both didn't know the best way to start up the discussion.
"Thank you, thank you for saving my life"
Julie was quick to Interject.
"Why did you say it?"
"Say what?"
"Why did you say those words..."
Julie was not getting his point.
"What words?"
"Why did you say you love me?"
He was staring at her intently. She stuttered and felt her eyes grow dim from staring at one position.
Favour appeared and Julie was so glad for the interruption.
"Nice Job dealing with Siera, I'm guessing you think she is half dead by now"
Favour was straight to the point, just that Jack wasn't happy with the interruption.
"You again"
He muttered but Favour wasn't paying attention to him.
"What if I told you Siera is fine, she has no scratch on her"
Julie shook her head in disbelief.
"That's impossible, I even have the whip now"
"Really? Where is it?"
A frown appeared on Julie's face, a minute back, she was sure the whip was on the dinning table, but now, it was gone.
"Listen Julie, don't fold your hands like you've won, not when you are dealing with the gatekeeper...you'll need Jack's help"
Favour turned to Jack now who was obviously trying to fit into the scene.
"Oh finally she realise that I'm actually recognizable"
Favour was not interested in his sense of humour. She made a hit on the point.
"Jack it's time you know who your real parents are and take charge of Prada designers"
She paused to leave Jack stunned with questions and then turned to Julie.
"Guard up girl, the battle is far from over"

Crime / Re: Lawyer, Onyemobi Ochiagha Chucks Rapes 17-year-old Girl In His House, Arrested by Nowenuse: 2:03am
she is NOT hausa.

AnanseK made the mistake. She is not Hausa but still a northerner though (from southern kaduna). If it was vice versa, watch how Igbo folks here would have insulted and ridiculed all northerners here today, (hausa or not).

Well, I thank God that the person standing and fighting for the poor girl is also an Igbo man. This tells us that evil knows no tribe, likewise good too. God bless the good samaritan and I hope the innocent underaged girl gets justice.

But, don’t neglect the customers you already have, they play a very important role to the success of your business. As Belle Beth Cooper notes on the Buffer Blog, you could use the “upside-down funnel” approach. This could include making customers feel like they’re part of the business, part of an exclusive club, giving them something extra, and making them feel like VIPs.

Ranching is the best solution to this Fulani herdsmen brouhaha. Since cow herding is a private business, why can't the owners of such business purchase land for ranching? Is that such a difficult thing to do? China has lots and lots of cow but I've NEVER EVER seeing them being grazed openly. Dairy and meat processing companies all have ranches. Just recently in Ghana, a commissioner of police there told the officers under him to shot and kill any cow they found grazing openly. The Fulanis were seeing on video pleading for time to enable them move their herds of cattle elsewhere. Why must everything in Nigeria be different?
Romance / Photos: Tboss Stylishly Begs For Fashion Items On The Internet by WNRealm: 2:01am

Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Tokunbo Idowu popularly known and referred to as Tboss has shown her fans how to beg on the internet and still maintain your classy and dignity!

Tboss who became popular during the BBN show when she showed her full boobs to the world on screen, made her intention known about ho she would love to have some of the classiest fashion items owned by some of the most fashionable and best dressed ladies in Africa.


In her Instagram story, TBoss stylishly declares her desire to teleport herself into the closets of OAP Toke Makinwa, Actress Rita Dominic and South African Media person Bonang! And also go from there to her normal business of travelling round the world, which is obvious she has been doing ever since she left the Big Brother Naija house.

She also desires to teleport herself to see her mum and then give her a huge hug.

Tboss stylishly begs for fashion items on the Internet lailasnewsNote that the three ladies are not just classy but they are considered to be among the most fashionable with closets to die for!
It could have easily been considered a joke, but we all can conclude Tboss actually meant business as she not only mentioned their name, she also went as far as tagging them in the post by mentioning their handle. This will surely sent a notification to them, and if she is lucky he might get an invite.

Tboss also mentioned that whatever she takes would be hers as she has no plans of returning them.

Now this is how to beg and retain your dignity… she says:


“If I could teleport myself anywhere this afternoon, it would be straight into Bonang-M, Toke Makinwa and Rita Dominic’c closets help myself to all them goodies and then go about my business and travel around the world… I might oright not bring back your stuff, so sorry in advance! “
Hopefully, one or all of the three celebs will invite her for the closet raid
