I was sleeping when he came back…the other guys came in quietly too.

Me: how was it?

I said this after I opened the door to see his sad face…

Jafar: He is dead alright…

Me: how did they kill him?

Jafar: you really want to know?

Me: yes…I want to know all that is in your head…

Jafar: he was shot in the head. We carried his body before the police and school authorities got to it..

Me: why?

Jafar: when a Confra member is killed, the school sends the body to the medical school in Sagamu, where 2nd and 3rd year medical students use the body as cadaver.

Me: hmmmm, without the parents being aware?

Jafar: yes…Tana, I don’t know what tomorrow holds, but if I should die, I should be buried that night…I have told Uche but you know….he might be killed too…

Me: chai, which type of silly talk is this?…you promised you would not die…

Jafar: I wont…I am just saying should incase…

Me: there is power in the tongue, shut up!

Jafar: have I ever told you, you are so lovely?

Me: nope…

Jafar: you are..

Me: why are you all mushy mushy now?

Jafar: death puts a guy in perspective…

Me: stop talking about death…

We were both in bed…

Jafar: I have liked you since the first time I saw you…

Me: when was that?

Jafar: During GNS 103, I was in your class, I saw you answer a question once and you got stuck in my head…

Me: why didn’t you ever tell me…

Jafar: because of Timi…plus someone like you doesn’t deserve just a fling…

Me: that is so sweet…

Jafar: come let me show you something….

Me : where?

Jafar: Just come…

It was past 9pm when I entered his benz with him, and he drove us into the night…

Me: isn’t it dangerous?

Jafar: nope, we are not going far…

It was a cold night, even after he put off the car’s AC, it was still cold, I embraced myself to fight it. He didn’t drive into the main road, instead he continued driving along a rough path until we got to an open space. This space was surrounded by a thick bush. The space was almost circle in shape, we were in the middle.

Me: what is this place?

Jafar: I really don’t know, I stumbled on it some months ago..

Me: what were you doing that you stumbled on it..

Jafar: in times of relative peace, I like to drive around close to mid-night. It helps me think and process ideas..

Me: so you were driving and you got here, what’s so special about this place? Although I like the circular thingy…

Jafar: are you ready?

Me: yes…

He turned off the car’s engine and lights.

Jafar: shhhhhh

We remained quiet in the car…I looked at him after a while and almost giggled out. He must have been talking about a spiritual experience because I wasn’t seeing another physical.

Then it start…a fire-fly put on its light on the right side of the bush, then a group put on theirs on the left..then a couple more put on theirs. Before long, the entire bush was filled with light emitting fire-flies…it was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen…we were the darkness surrounded by light….

Me: this is nice…

Jafar: I come here everytime…

Me: you haven’t brought any other person here before?

Jafar: no..just you..

Me: thanks…

Jafar: Lets go outside…

Me: I don’t want them to leave…

Jafar: they won’t…

We laid down on the car bonnet…facing the sky, surrounded by God’s light…

Me: after all these ends, what becomes of us?

Jafar: I thought about it too…

Me: so?

Jafar: I really don’t know, a day at a time I guess…

Me: I will be going to Lagos soon, probably after

I leave Sagamu.

He didn’t say anything…dew was falling on the car, making the cold night even colder. I drew closer to him to tap some warmth..

Jafar: I love you Tana…

My heart skipped several beats as he said those words..i kept looking at the stars that filled the sky. Now that he had said he loved me, this guy just made it very hard for me. What if we are forced to say our goodbyes…what will happen to me…I would be broken…

Jafar: look there..

He pointed at a building from a far, with lights at the top…

Jafar: that is the Ebumawe’s palace..

Me: I love you too…

And then I started crying again..how did I get here? How did I get to fall in love with someone like Jafar.

Me: can I ask for a favor?

Jafar: sure…

Me: can you just remain on the low-key till we graduate. Forget about Eli and all…lets just be..

He didn’t reply…

Me: can you?

Jafar : its not a one way thing, we are fighting an evil…if we don’t…it would be the end of us all..

Me: then be careful…

Jafar: Eli worries you…

Me: yes..

Jafar: don’t worry…

I started shivering after a while so we went back inside the car. Hoobastank’s “the reason” blarred from his speakers…He switched the gear into drive and once again…we eased into the night…
