Bisola stepped out of the keke in such a rush that she forgot to pay the napep driver. What crowded her mind was the issue at hand – the most important mission she had ever embarked on – finding and teaching the serial husband snatcher of a lady a lesson she won’t forget quickly.
As she alighted, she replayed everything one last time; she didn't even bother looking back as she half-walked and half-ran towards the so-called husband snatcher's house, so she didn’t hear the torrent of insults the driver sent to her path. She banged the gate like a wounded lion; a woman possessed by demons would dread getting close so as not to be infected by her. She looked not herself today and she cared less.
Bisola wanted this matter resolved; the lion was surely going to teach the dog how to behave and eat its own meal. As she thumped the gate violently, she played the ordeal once more.
The thoughts of herself being on top of the foolish bitch, pounding her without the prospect of tomorrow being in sight, occupied her head. She planned to feed her sand, making it certain that the next victim that would come her way would be her father. Nonsense! Who dares to tread on the tail of a wildcat as herself and go scot-free! This lady would know why everyone feared her back in her secondary school days.
Pelumi, suspecting nothing came out, rushing to open the gate.
"Pelumi Odunlade… It's a lie!" she shouted, letting out a cry as that of a stiff-pitched soprano singer who is about to lose her voice. Unbelievable! Her eyes were not deceiving her, she thought. This was her long lost best friend; she would live to fight another day.
There was plenty to discuss, enough stories to tell and a lot of catching up to do. She wouldn’t let one foolish man come into her life and destroy her happiness.
