Life Of Crime *season1* [fiction] by Coolval222(m): 9:01am On Jan 02, 2013
Episode 1
Writing has never been a hubby of mine but then I really have to do this, since there is nothing else for me to do. The story of my life which I am writing now is not
being done with my good mind, because I don’t think there is
anyone who is away from his country, family, friends, wealth
and still be happy about it.......
I’m all alone in my single room which I rented in a small town a few kilometers away from Lome, the capital city of Togo. The country where I sought refuge in order to avoid justice which is
lurking around the corner, due to my lifestyle, waiting to catch up with me. I can only wish my story would be able to teach or change
someone in future because for me, I really don’t know how my tomorrow will look like......
How did it all start?
My name is Prince Micheal and I was born 28 years ago in Isoko land, a village in the heart of Zubi
state, the sixth south eastern state of Nigeria with its capital city located in Panama, a beautiful
city surrounded by river which flows from the great Imo river. I have heard the saying, 'The struggle of man begins at birth' and this couldn't be more truer in
my case. My parents were poor farmers who couldn’t afford to
train my elder brother and I in school even though we are their
only children. This left my brother, Onyeka, with no choice than to leave home at a very tender age
to live with an uncle of ours who taught him a handwork. I
struggled on my own to see myself through school with my
parents occasionally helping out when they could. Due to my
intelligent nature I was able to survive in school by writing
exams for WAEC and G.C.E students as well as assignments
and exams for carry over and spill over students. I even engaged in petty frauds sometimes just to graduate, which I finally did five years ago.
But then the harsh realities of life hit me hard on the face once
more after my youth service programme which made me
relocate to the village where I ran a little poultry and also simultaneously searched for work. After a year, I had no fowls to ‘train’ nor money to sustain my
parents or even feed myself.
There was no one to help not even Onyeka because he was just
a mere generator repairer, who
foolishly rushed into marriage immediately he opened his own
shop. How all my fowls suddenly
died, I had no clue but then my greatest passion had always been to earn real money and not to be
a poultry farmer, so I set out for Panama city once more with a
determined mind.
To be continued……

Episode 2
The time was around 6:50pm when the bus I boarded stopped
at the Panama city main park. I disembarked and immediately stopped a bikeman as it was
getting late.
“Oga where you dey go?” the bike man asked me.
“J.BOY BUSH BAR at sterling street, before the cherubim church” I said to him and he nodded.
“Oga na just fifty Naira” he said to me and I silently climbed on the bike and he zoomed off.
The evening breeze felt cool as it landed upon my face and I closed my eyes as I enjoyed it, forgetting
my worries. Sterling street was where my friend, Ejike, ran his
flourishing beer parlour and under just a year of returning
back from service with me, he had already gotten a Honda. Ordinary Ejika who couldn't even
make a complete sentence without disgracing our education system! I know this because he
had merely graduated due to my hard work and I had always made sure that he sat beside me during exams so that once I was done with mine I could exchange
my answer sheet with his. I would immediately fill up his own answer sheet because he was so
dull that he couldn't even copy my work which would lie open for him.
However, he had always greased
my palms, for he was a confirmed
bad boy, a reputable cultist, and
also among the few students who had sustained me in school.
“Guy I don’t know wetin you dey
do for that villa, abeg enter town make I teach how to survive,
because your own world don expire after we *gradge* so na my own world be this”,he had
often said to me when ever we spoke on the phone.
I do not drink beer nor smoke anything smoke-able, so I had
often avoided being too close to him because I knew I had a light brain and there is no way I could
fit into his world.
“But now see what my condition is doing to me”, I said to myself and shook my head. “This world
is really a place where only the strong-hearted do survive and this time around I must make it”.
I concluded with determination.
Just that moment the bike man stopped in front of J.BOY BUSH
BAR and ‘jeez’ the place was bubbling. I felt like weeping as I
saw the customers in my friend’s bar, drinking and dancing while my last card that evening was just
two hundred Naira, which I gave the bike man in return for a
hundred and fifty naira change.
“I must make it” I said to myself again.

Episode 3
I slowly made my way into the
bubbling bush bar and my eyes
wandered as I calmly searched
for Ejike. My stomach growled in
hunger as the smell of food hit
my nostrils “Ejike
were are you nah” i muttered, as
i wasn't ready to answer any
embarrassing question from the
bar attendants that evening.
Moreover, I really was too tired
with many thoughts going
through my mind.
I finally saw him at the far end of
the joint which was a bit hidden
from the glowing bulbs, and
watched him as he laughed and
discussed with two gentle men. I
breathed heavily as I hesitantly
moved towards them and luckily
for me Ejike looked towards my
direction and raised his hands
beckoning me to come over. He
hugged me happily as if I was his
long lost brother.
“O boy finally you don show” he
said to me and I laughed with
great happiness.
“My brother I don finally show
oo” I said to him and he
immediately turned to his two
friends who watched us silently
with drinks on their table.
“Prince meet my chairmen” he
said to me as I extended my two
hands in a respectful manner to
the first guy who was dressed in
a green top.
“Oga Hangman, meet my best
friend from university, Prince” he
introduced me to him and he
shook my hands with his hefty
dry right hand which was very
strong with long nails before I
moved over to the guy on my left
who was a bit smaller than
hangman and shook his hand as
well.
“Prince meet my good friend Billy
the great” Ejike said to me as I
shook Billy and muttered a little
greeting to him while he smiled
at me. He looked a bit younger
than Hangman and he equally had
a friendly face, as he smiled and
offered me a seat which Ejike had
pulled out for me.
I sat down with a smile on my
face, while my legs shook
underneath the table as i
sweated.
Ejike immediately grabbed my
small traveling bag and left us.
“My brothers I dey come oo” he
said before leaving us while
hangman still watched me in
silence, as he smoked his cigar.
“So you are also a graduate?” Billy
asked me in admiration and I
nodded my head.
“Yes, I graduated with Ejike”. I
said and he smiled further.
“How I wish I had that
opportunity”, he said to me
before gulping down a glass of
Star and I watched him in silence
without knowing how best to
reply him.
At that moment, Ejike appeared
with two girls who were carrying
trays of drinks and pepper soup,
he smiled to me as he pulled out
the last empty chair which was
beside the table and sat down.
“My brother welcome to my
world”, he said to me.....

@poster, quick question: Is the main character Isoko or Ibo? The reason I ask is because these are two very distinctive tribes and Isokos aren't part of Imo state...

Episode 4
I ate and drank with them till late
in the night and it felt really good
to get my stomach filled up
without spending a dime! I
relaxed as they cracked jokes
about women, their escapades
with them, how they had slept
with many of the girls sitting and
dancing at the bar.
Damn, the girls in the bar were
numerous, seductive and
tempting, they really had a way of
looking at someone, passing a
direct message at the same time.
“Choi life is sweet if you have
money” I said to myself as I
watched one of the beauties
dance.
She was wearing a very short
skirt with a transparent top and
my joystick jumped up and down
as I watched her dance because
the size of her ass was
magnificent. The type Rick Ross
calls “pot of money”. Right then I
wished I had money and a room
for the girl needed to be
knacked.
“Her name na Juliet” Billy said to
me with a smile, for he had
followed my gaze and saw who I
was watching.
“The girl make sense”, I said to
him and he laughed as Hangman
continued to puff out smoke from
his mouth. Billy waved at the girl
who came immediately.
“Bring a chair and drink with us”,
he said to the girl, who did as he
requested and sat down with us.
Billy opened a bottle of small stout
for her, which she took and
drank with us while I watched
her closely with a beating heart.
It had really been long since I last
slept with a girl which was six
months ago. I couldn't really
control the urge any longer after
abstaining from s*x for months
at home after my youth service,
so I had invited Princess, an 18
year old SS3 student who was like
a girlfriend to me, to my home
one Sunday and made love to her
for hours while she moaned,
screamed and begged as I
ravaged her. We broke up after
that day for she refused to talk to
me again.
“Wetin you dey think?” Ejike
asked me, bringing me out of my
dream state and I smiled to him.
“My brother my problem is much
oo”, I said and he laughed.
“Don’t worry brother, just finish
your drink so that I can drop you
and this chic at my place. Oga
Hangman has already paid her to
service you” he said to me with a
smile and I immediately looked up
to Hangman in gratitude, but he
just waved it off with his hand.
“Abeg no dey fall hand in front
of Juliet nah”, he said to me
under the cloud of his smoke.
I smiled and hurriedly gulped
down my remaining drink, stood
up, shook Billy followed by
Hangman’s hand and off to Ejike’s
house we went.
My friend Ejike was living in a four
bedroom flat then, which also
had a kitchen and toilet with
good veranda and I marveled at
the interior decoration of his
house.
“Surely this guy is seeing money”.
I said to myself, as he led us to my
new room.
“Enjoy yourself. I’m coming
because I haven't yet closed my
bar for today”. He said before
leaving.
I smiled within me as I looked at
the succulent, delicious apple
before me, who stood in her high
heel shoes and watched me with
a smile, with legs spread in a
seductive position.
“Boy o boy, life is good”, I said to
myself as I hastily undressed

Episode 5

Juliet drove me from Jericho to Jerusalem and back to Nigeria as
she rocked and received me with abandon while I opened my mouth as I
knacked her from behind.

“Jeez nothing sweet pass to carry ashewo day break” I said to
myself, as I enjoyed her.

The air conditioning system inside the room chilled our
bodies as we carried on throughout the night and there wasn't a style that we did not try that night. Truly it had really been long that I had good s*x and the compensation was
perfect. Juliet was just a she-wolf and she really deserved her pay that night!

The following morning after Juliet
had gone, Ejike and I sat in his sitting room and discussed seriously, for I came to Panama city for one thing and that was to make money.

“Guy I see sey you really don become real big boy oo but abeg help your brother with your
contacts please”. I said to Ejike, who just looked at me and smiled.

“Which kind work you dey even find sef?” he asked me as if we
didn’t study the same course at school and I shrugged.

"Anyhow work sha, but you know sey na bank things we read nah” I said to him and he smiled again.

“Guy dat kind work no dey dis town ooo but anyhow sha I go check” he said to me.
I wasn't comfortable with his reply and I prompted further.

“Guy abeg do you know of any private primary or secondary
school around?”
He just gasped at me in surprise.

“Wetin you dey find private school for?” he asked me and I
swallowed hard before muttering,
“I wan check whether
they are looking for teachers nah”.

Ejike laughed out loud.

“And how much will they pay you there?” he asked me,

“Guy I no send, even if it is 10K no problem”, but he only continued
to laugh while I watched him in silence.
Ejike later made me assistant manager in his bar with a salary
of twenty thousand Naira monthly which was really okay for
someone in my condition, for I ate free of charge and paid no bills, and seriously, he really made sure that I was comfortable.

But that kind of
work wasn't really the type of work that I had wanted, for it
was turning me into something else. I really did nothing but eat, drink, collect commissions, free
s*x from love peddlers and mix
with a whole lot of useless people. I also realised that Ejike
was making so much money, more than I had even thought, for
bar business in an evil city like Panama is a very lucrative one.
Then, I also noticed that my friend was gainfully employed in
another work which really was paying him four times what he
earned from his bar in a month! His bar business was just a camouflage but what really surprised me the most was the kind of “second business” he was doing, for I never believed that a dumb boy like Ejike could be involved in a big venture like
“organised crime"

Episode 6

Ejike belonged to an organisation known as the “Helms
Corporation”, a multi-billion dollar
corporation, which had no office but deals in human trafficking, kidnapping, armed
robbery, assassination and oil bunkering. This multi-billion dollar cooperation is owned by a retired
army colonel known as ‘Chief’ by
all the employees of the organisation but his real name is
Joseph Peters, one of the few men who pulls weight in the
country.
And I got to know all these from Ejike after much persuasion on
my part, who later gave me the scanty details keeping other facts to himself.
“How do I join?” I had asked him that evening when he opened up to me and he looked at me in
surprise.
“Join what?”
“Helms nah” I said to him and he laughed.
“See you, wetin you go fit do?” he
asked me with a smile.
But my mind was already made up because from the little he told me I had concluded that ‘the
Helms’ wasn't just an ordinary criminal organisation which bred rascals. I had seen some of his
friends and they really did not like criminals, even though some of
them like Hangman did look devilish.
“Guy you know that I am a fast learner, besides I’m also good at calculations” I said seriously and he gave me a long searching look.
“Are you really serious about this?"
I nodded immediately. “Yes bro, I dey hundred percent serious”.
He shrugged, “Ok nah no wahala,
when the recruitment for the year commences I will let you know”, I
looked at him in surprise.
“Which kind recruitment?” I
asked him and he laughed,
“Oh you think that you can just walk in and become a member?”
he asked me and I kept quiet.
“Recruitment for twenty or more
people is done once in a year and after the screening, they will take the new applicants to a desert in the north for two months training exercise” he explained to me.
“so my brother relax and think about it well” he concluded
with a laugh and I rested my hands on my jaw in deep
thought.
With the recruitment only months away I had no choice but to
continue my work as the assistant manager in Ejike’s bar, which was booming, especially when his friends were in town. I quietly studied everything around
me because life is really all about learning. However Ejike’s bar was really the kind of place where any young man will go and loose
focus because the place was really ‘Sodom’ and his joint
offered one of the cheapest 'room service’ in town, with a hundred percent assurance of privacy, especially for people who enjoyed ‘quickies’. The fifteen
rooms he had at the back of his bar was invisible from the outside and which was also the den of
love peddlers in his employ.
And it wasn't long before I fell in
love with a bar girl, much to the disgust of Ejike, but then I couldn't help it because my love
for her honey pot had gotten into my head and scattered it.
Flora. A girl with charm, large bosoms and great hips.
Oh Flora is really a beauty to behold...
