|The Motive. by brain54(m): 10:48am On Nov 22, 2020|
hi guys. so my name is brain54. (but you already know that) I am a wanna be writer.... but always too lazy to complete my works(not so lazy with some other things)
so I mostly do short stuffs...I was going through some old stuffs and came across this story I was writing back in 2008. I didn't get to complete it though...my laziness is legendary!
well,I thought to share with you guys and if I get enough views, reviews and encouragements,I might be tempted and motivated to complete it. critics are also welcome.
its a "semi true life story". names have however been altered to protect identity of individuals involved. enjoy!
THE ARREST:MY name is brain54,I work in a construction firm. I am an ordinary guy,live a normal and ordinary life- well,until the 14th of February, 2008. it was the day for lovers. how funny because I was in police detention. what else could be more romantic than spending Valentine in jail for a lover right?
I looked around the small holding cell,taking my time to study my new " room mates". there was Jones a very funny character. he kept talking, his mouth never shut for a minute. in fact,if he had nothing to say he left it hanging wide open. this was rare because he always had something to say. he is a sweet talker and had been accused of duping a man of money and goods worth millions.
there was also Chris who sat at the other corner all by himself never talking,only talking when asked a question. he talked in monosyllables. he looked rough and unkept. I also thought he looked dangerous. there was something about his eyes- blood red. well,I sopose there should because he had been found in possession of hard drugs.
I took my mind back to the events that had made me to be in the small room with my new friends.
it had been an hectic day at work and i had to close late from the office due to some files on my desk i had to take care of. on my way home,i had stopped over at the club to have a bottle of beer and chat with a few friends and to inform them that i wouldnt be at the club for the weekend. i wanted the weekend off to relax a little and put my mind in other. i want to be on my own and not be bothered by friends and family... i usually took this stance when they was something bothering me and i needed to think.
i got home and had a cold shower. i really needed it at that point. i called my best friend kunle because i hadn't seen him in for 2days. we only spoke on phone. he wasn't even in the club when i called earlier today.
i was about to start reading a copy of my favourite magazine- HOLLA ENTERTAINMENT which i had bought on my way home from work,when i heard a car drive into the compound. i stood up and walked over to the window where i saw my girl friend,a police officer and another man i could not immediately identify drop out of the car.
i walked over to my bedroom, put on a black polo shirt and walked over to the front door. i gently opened the door and there i was looking into the officer's face. " are you mr brain54"? he asked in a soft and polite voice. a voice i felt to be soft considering that he was a policeman. he was ne early dressed too. before then,my impression about the nigerian policemen was that they were illiterates,dressed shabbily,brutal and aggressive. but i hadn't had much contact with policemen up till that point. the young officer standing in front of me right now was none of the above and appearance. "yes,i am he". i replied as boldly as i could. "do you know this lady"? he asked pointing at flora my girlfriend...."yes...i do"! i replied,not taking my eyes from his face. " i would like for yöu to accompany us to the station....." he pa used then continued "....this lady here has made a complaint about you in the station. "oh..." i said in mock surprise, and taking my eyes off the officer's face for the first time since the knock and planting them on flora's face. i asked," and what are the allegations."? "when yöu get to the station,you would find out sir...i am sergeant okoro and this is her lawyer,mr bassey." he said he said pointing to the man standing beside her who looked familiar to me since...now i remembered he was her boss in the office and i had met him one time i went to check on flora at her office. "now if yöu would follow us" he said making a gesture towards the gate. "oh...certainly".i replied.
chapter 2 coming up...let me drink water and read comments on what yöu think so far...
