|The Darkest Night by NyemzyHimself: 7:38pm On Aug 19, 2017|
Sade and Johnson have been together for some time. They got married at a very young age when some of their mates were yet to find their feet financially. Johnson owns an industry that supplies raw materials to production companies while Sade owns one of the biggest malls in Lagos. Their love story is one that anybody that loves good things would like to hear.
Sade came from a wealthy home hence her ability to achieve a lot within a short period of time. Johnson on the other hand came from an average home which appears not to be rich or poor. He strived so hard to make investments that will set him up for life and good fortune located him. At the age of 28 when his mates were still moving from a firm to another with their CVs, he already owns a big industry with over 100 employees.
His friendship with Sade started back in their primary school days. Many actually mistook them for twins because of their closeness. When they completed their primary education, Sade got admitted into Queens College, Lagos and Johnson was admitted at Federal government college Bida.
They couldn’t communicate with each other for the six years they spent in secondary school because they had no means of communication. On graduating from high school, Johnson tried all possible means to reconnect with his childhood friend but it was all to no avail.
After several months of trying, he gave up and decided to face his future squarely. He took the university matriculation examination the year he got out of secondary school but was denied the course he chose. He decided to re-write the following year instead of going into what he does not have passion for. Many advised him that he should accept the admission stating that he will get used to the course and he will develop a likeness for it as time goes on but his mind was already made up. Johnson is the type of person that is usually adamant somewhat stubborn when it comes to things that have to do with academics.
The following year, he took the examination again and got exactly what he expected. This time around he swore that even the witches in his village cannot stop him from entering the university that year because he scored higher than majority of those that applied for the course. When the admission list came out, his name was the 4th on the list of those admitted to study Business Administration.
He resumed school the following month and met all the required processes that new intakes are meant to go through. He resumed lectures and met new friends. Now, he has gone into the world and being the only son, he tried so hard not to let his family down.
One fateful morning as he was rushing to school to have his lectures for the day, the unbelievable happened. Someone shouted his name and quickly hugged him from behind. Turning towards the direction of the lady that hugged him, he couldn’t believe his eyes. Sade! He exclaimed. “I have looked for you for ages. Where have you been? How is everything?” He asked in excitement.
“I have been good, dear. I have asked so many people for your address but nobody seems to know the person I’m talking about”. She explained.
“Everything is now okay provided that you are now here with me” Johnson added.
They started discussing and he got to know that they are studying the same course though Sade is now a year ahead of him.
Sade gave him all her year one materials and they became best of friends once again.
Johnson helped her out in some of the assignments that involve calculation because she was not too good with calculations and Sade on the other hand, contributed her quota by supporting him all through their stay in school.
Unlike some “recharge card” girls that befriends some guys to gain certain favours, Sade was more focused on what the future holds for them and this made Johnson to confide in her.
Some years later, they graduated and left the university.
For Johnson, this is now time for full time business as some of his lectures and school activities were affecting his extracurricular activities. He has been a very good source of inspiration to Sade and this is the reason why they can never leave each other. Many envied their relationship but they didn’t care about that as they were much focused.
Some years later, Johnson took the bold step and proposed to her. She didn’t hesitate to declare in the affirmative because she has been waiting for that very moment.
They later bore kids and started their own home. Like every other parents that takes their wards to school and takes care of them, they joined the train and assumed the responsibility that comes with parenthood.
Their love for their kids and each other grew and they were living happily until one evening. Her husband returned from work and some minutes later, he got a call that his office has been ransacked. He hurried to the company and saw the company’s security men in the pool of their own blood. He became devastated and rushed into his car to leave the scene and inform security operatives. He was on the verge of entering his vehicle to reverse so he can leave the scene immediately and shots of bullets were fired. Johnson has been gunned down. The armed robbers rushed towards him and collected his car keys and his mobile phones. Three hours later, he was yet to return to the house and his wife became worried.
“My husband has never been outside beyond 10pm” she said with a voice that depicts worry.
She called his mobile phones but they have been switched off. She became restless. 11pm passed, but Johnson was not yet back. Now it has become obvious to her that something must have gone wrong. She called the cops and informed them of the situation and gave them the address of the company. When they got there, it was already 1am. They saw Johnson lying lifeless on the floor. They called his wife and gave her the situation report. Sade collapsed immediately. She knows what this news means to her and their kids. Their best friend has embarked on a journey of no return. That night marked the beginning of a terrible era in their lives.
