About 30mins later, Sade walks in looking all irritated with a so you spent the day at home look on her face on seeing X on the bed.
He smiles back at her, hugs her (she was all stiffed up). She was about to speak when the door was barged in and 3 guys with Cutlasses and axe walk in, Sade notices X was about to react and she grabs his hand, he pauses on realising his actions might get her hurt. “Both of you lie down! No waste my time!” they get on the ground. 2 of the robbers grab X and raised him to his feet, the third (the leader) picks up Sade, looks at X and a grin appears on his lips as he puts his cutlass on Sade’s throat, he then began to speak“Motherfucking Oluwaemeka (OE)! So na you! Anyways, Orshine don come, and wetin I don kan collect na my own”, he turns his gaze at the guys holding OE and nods, simultaneously, they punch him in the stomach.

He smiles and returns home to Sade, tells her all that has happened since she left for work between him and Chukwuma, his death till the exchange point. “Its one thing to be a street boy, its another to cross Isoji’s path as well as Ejanla’s. Dear, please walk away from this one” Sade implored. OE smiled back at her “I will hon, just that I can’t walk away from an opportunity to be in Isoji’s grace and get the finders fee for the stolen item. Babes, I’ll see you tomorrow”.
