I was walking out into the main street from my Crescent to buy stuffs as usual, this time a tooth paste, when I met him again.
“Good morning bro” I greeted like usual
“yea Good morning guy, how was your night ”
“Thank God sir”
“Going out to buy something”
Then we parted as usual and I continued my trekking. That’s how it’s use to be between me and this guy. I always like to accord him his respect, May be it was because he was on his middle 30 weigh older than me, just like my mind tells me. He was a neighbour, opposite our well fenced compound, and has married with kids; that’s all I know about him.
On another very day in our house being 17th July, I was there in the sitting room with my siblings whom all were discussing something that I don’t want to partake in, because I have a whole lot of writing to do that day.
I sat in the sitting room dinning with my papers and my laptops with my mind very far away, scourging through the realm to make it happen, how to strategize the plot of this upcoming wonderful Movie Story that I was writing for my blog; ‘A bug in the middle of the sea’.
Throughout that day I was hitting my fingers on my laptops as I was roaming around the world with my mind. I could manage to hear them say it.
“It has been going on for some time now” Amaka our first daughter said.
“Yes of course, in this particular occasion, the man was lamenting about his expensive clothes he hung on the rope outside, his shoes on his front door… all of them gone under the twinkle of an eye” Joy our second sister and our last born said
“Who could be doing such a thing in this vicinity?”
“Wait Dear” joy interrupted “The other time Mr Noel the owner of the house adjacent to ours reported of car battery missing from where he kept it in his house, a pair of slippers that wasn’t Mr. Noel’s, was left in front of his house, the sandals he left in front of the door was now also missing, all happened the same time.”
“It might be the same person that carried the car battery that took also those pair of sandals leaving his own behind” Amaka said with a low tone, folding his arms in surprise.
“Is not that it might…but is directly the same person that is performing all those acts, not even only these ones, there were still many events that had gone on here and there and it’s still the same person ”
“But how have they been able to know that it was him”
This gossip was what is passing through my ears as i was scourging through my memory to find a better and convincing plot for my movie Story.
At 9:30 PM, still that 17th July I was then feeling like changing my position, because I have stayed longer than I have expected in that dining table, I picked up my laptop, my Samsung android phone and my books, stood up headed for our room.

As of then it was only me and my two sisters in the sitting room at that hour. My younger brother, our third born had already gone asleep in my room, because I do share my room with him. My parents had already gone asleep as well in their room. Our cousin Paul who came last two days has also slept in guest room.
“Joy I haven’t had you say who was doing all this….anyway woe betide that person to show up here in this house” this was only statement I could drop for them and without waiting for the answer, headed to my room with my belongings.
The entire low energy bulb in our house, both outside and inside was shinning like mad, even the ones at our front fence. At that moment, everywhere was quite, and even the tenant house was quite without movement of any kind. The only noise you can hear was the noise of buzzing Crickets around the hidden corners outside, which was the noise of a quite night; and also some little cracking noise from other tiny creatures of the night.
I came in into my room, which was at south west position as your facing the main gate. That is it was close to the left side fence as your facing the main gate. Along through the base of the house wall facing the fence wall at that left side, was a basement that ran through. It was up high that you have to take some energy for you to climb up. This basement also ran through the back of the house.
My room has two windows which were with iron protectors, one facing the left side fence and the other facing the back of the house. The space between the house and the left side wall was where we did some gardening and it’s a little bit scattered with small stones around. This left side wall was near a bushy land.
Inside my room, the window facing the back of the house was where I kept my reading table; but my bed was sitting along the other window facing the left side fence. Ahead of the bed was a bag where my brother temporary keeps his trousers and shirts whenever he comes back from school or from somewhere.
My brother was already facing head wise to the bag in front of the bed. I arranged my table with my laptops and books, sat down and continued. The bright light was shining nonstop so I was enjoying the night.
Almost at 11:20 PM, I found myself sitting startled simultaneously with a banging of my door open.
