Students ran away without looking back as they saw them approaching, even lecturers driving by had to speed their cars away in fear of what would happen in a matter of minutes.
There is no way someone won’t be killed today because whenever the members of the Arch Angels were seen around the campus with their green jackets on, that surely spells death for either a student of the school or a staff.
Three men putting on Identical green Jacket and same brown pencil chinos are walking down the path that leads to the faculty of law, the only significant difference between them is that only one of them is putting on a Green Beret while the other two are putting on green baseball caps.
Immediately the law students in the lecture room saw the boys approaching their class, they all ran off. Some escaped through the window, some squeezed through the door, the students including the lecturer in their class ran away in fear. Within a minute the whole lecture room was empty but one of the law students stayed back.
He kept his gaze fixed on the handout on his table pretending like he wasn’t bothered about the arrival of the three guys that just scared all his course mates away.
After a few minutes, he kept his handout aside and raised his head up as he adjusted his nerd glass. He starred at the three of them that were now standing right in front of him, he kept on looking but didn’t utter a word, the silence was broken by the guy that had the Green Beret on.
“You are really as brave as they say” the guy with the beret said after clapping for a period of time.
“Kong, table his fuck up” He said again.
“Undermining the powers of the Arch Angels” Kong replied.
“Hey mister, do you have any objection to what he just said about what your fuck up is? ” the guy with the green beret asked and waited for the guy sitting to reply but when no answer was forthcoming, he continued.
“Nazaretha, pass his Judgement”
“If thou undermineth the powers of the double A, thou shall be killed anytime thou art apprehended” Nazaretha replied.
The guy with the beret smiled like he always do anytime Nazaretha speaks in his funny old English.
“You still don’t have anything to say yeah” He asked the guy sitting again as he brought out his revolver from the cross bag hanging around his neck.
“This will be your greatest mistake and even of it takes a thousand years, my boys will hunt you and drop you” the guy replied staring at them blankly.
The guy didn’t bother replying him but rather he gave him three shots. One to his forehead, and two to his right and left side of his chest which clearly signified the signature of the Arch Angels. Immediately he finished taking the shots, he walked towards the board and picked the Tempo lying in front of the door.
*Slimmy was here* he wrote on the board.
“For they know not that Slimmy is the angel of death” Nazaretha shouted and walked out right behind Slimmy and Kong. They walked back with the same style and slow speed in which they came in with not minding that the people around might have alerted the authority of the school, they had no course to fear because they are the authority.
In a very short while after the incident happened, the news had already spread like wild fire. Most students in the school had started packing their bags and heading for their respective homes. They need no prophet to tell them that another war is imminent, the last war that happened in the school some few years ago claimed more innocent lives than the lives of the cultists that were directly involved in the dirty dealings. Before evening that day, the whole school including both hostel and off campus buildings were practically empty.
Most people ran to save their dear lives, the only people left in school were cultists and some students who really wanted to have first class gist about how the White Tigers will want to avenge the death of El Salam who was one of their prominent member that was murdered by the Arch Angels. Days went by, days turned to weeks and weeks were beginning to turn to months and there has been no news of killing or even a single gunshot being fired. Students began to resume one after another, gradually lectures started again and everything went back to how it was.
“OluwaGentle thou art the sneakiest of them all” Nazaretha hailed Gentle who just walked to where they were seated.
“Nazaretha you no dey ever serious” Gentle replied Nazaretha as they shook hands, he did the same with the rest of the guys sitting around with them.
Slimmy make I see you abeg” Gentle said. Slimmy stood up immediately and they both walked to a corner to talk.
They are not exactly the kind of identical twins that you won’t be able to differentiate. Slimmy is the definition of his name,very slim if not skinny in stature. Some of their closest pals always tease him that he shouldn’t move closer to a whirlwind else he would be blown away, yes he was that slim but that doesn’t in any way affect his good looks, Gentle on the other hand is a little bit chubby, he is not as tall as Slimmy, they have the same complexion and they kinda look alike facially. Just that Gentle prefers to keep his beard like that of rickross while Slimmy keeps his goatee beards.
They talked for a while and Gentle walked back to the guys to bid them goodbye and then walked back to where his twin brother was waiting for him so they could head to wherever they were going. They hadn’t walked far when Nazaretha called Gentle’s name and was mouthing some things but Gentle couldn’t hear him. He turned around to face Nazaretha but was still walking with his back, Slimmy saw a girl walking in Gentle’s direction, the girl was also not looking up because she was engrossed with whatever she was typing on her phone. He realised that Nazaretha was only distracting Gentle so he could collide with the girl, he held his breath to picture the drama that was about to happen, before Gentle could realise that Nazaretha was just teasing him,it was too late, just as he was about to turn….
They collided, the girl’s phone and hand bag fell to the ground. Slimmy and the rest of their friends started laughing uncontrollably, for a moment Gentle also tried to hold back his smile but when he couldn’t anymore, he bursted out laughing too. This must have infuriated the girl more and just as they were all laughing, there was another loud sound, yes it was another collision but this time it was a collision between the girl’s hand and Gentle’s cheek. The slap was so loud that they all stopped laughing at once.
Almost immediately after the girl slapped Gentle, Slimmy was reaching for a gun inside his cross bag but Gentle who already knew that was what he was going to do rushed to where he was and stopped him from bringing out his gun. He said some words to his brother and them he let go of the gun. Gentle walked back to where the girl is standing.
“I am sorry” he said as he handed over to her the phone and bag that he picked on the ground. He walked away from her immediately not minding to look at the regret that was written all over her face.
Slimmy watched his brother as he walked by, the love they have for each other is unexplainable, they could do anything for each other just to please each other.
“Oga wait for me na” He shouted as he ran to catch up with him.
I feel so ashamed of myself right now, I shouldn’t have just slapped him like that, I really do regret it” Hadijat complained to her cousin for the umpteenth time. She didn’t get a reply from her just like before, Hadijat’s anger fuelled up this time around and then she decided to switch off the tv in order to get her attention.
“And you had to switch off the Tv just when they were about to kill Jon Snow” Halimat spoke out at last.
“I am talking to you about something serious and you are talking thrash about a stupid movie” Hadijat snapped at her.
“Call my movie a stupid one again and watch as I sleep off right this minute” Halimat snapped back.
“Okay okay am sorry” Hadijat pleaded.
“Now tell me what is wrong with your father’s father” Halimat asked jokingly but still kept a straight face.
“I slapped some dude today on campus” Hadijat replied her softly with a tone filled with regrets.
Halimat laughed for a while before replying her.
“But that’s not the first and am sure it won’t be the last time you will be slapping a guy” she joked.
“It’s a different case now, I have never regretted slapping a dude” Hadijat.
How is it different then” Halimat replied after switching the Tv on.
“Maybe because they look cute or because they didn’t try to fight back” Hadijat.
“They? I thought you said you slapped just one guy, why are you using they?” Halimat.
“I slapped one but it was two of them, I think they are brothers because they kinda look alike” She explained
“Brothers? They look alike? Describe them please” Halimat asked with a lot of interest this time around.
“Yeah, they might even be a set twin I guess” she replied
“A set of Twin ? I just hope you are not referring to Slimmy and Gentle” Halimat asked almost shouting
“I think I heard one of them call the name Slimmy” Hadijat.
“Oh my God, you have brought trouble upon us” Halimat screamed.
“Why, who are they” Hadijat said shivering and trembling.
“Don’t ask questions, just pick few things you will be needing for the night, we are leaving this house right this minute” Halimat ordered.
Hadijat didn’t bother asking further questions, she knew her cousin is not one that will blow things out of proportion, if she says trouble is coming then surely trouble is coming. They went into their respective room to park few of their clothes and toiletries, they met back at the lounge and were about to switch off the lights when they heard a knock on the door, Hadijat immediately ran behind a couch in the room while Halimat ran towards the kitchen, grabbed a table knife and then approached the door.
“Who is there” Halimat asked
“And why did it take you so long to come get the door” the voice replied from outside.
Halimat opened the door immediately after hearing the voice.
“Which one of you slapped Gentle earlier today” Rough asked as she walked in not bothering to look towards where Halimat was standing.
“It was me” Hadijat replied as she crawled out of where she was hiding.
The two other girls couldn’t help but laugh their asses out.
“You’d better go and read every apology speech you can get hold of right now because you will be needing one tomorrow” Rough spoke out after trying so hard to stop herself from laughing.
“Who will I be apologising too”
“Who else? The guy you slapped now” Rough replied as she bounced towards her room in her tom boyish walking style.
“Rofiat does that mean we can sleep here peacefully tonight” Halimat screamed so as to make sure that Rough heard the question.
“Or else you guys have a party to attend” Rough replied.
“Can’t she just say a simple yes” Halimat murmured and hissed while Hadijat just smiled.
Even though Rofiat is a few years older than her, she still doesn’t want to admit that she should respect her, despite knowing how dangerous and deadly she is, Halimat still didn’t have a string of fear for her because she was sure that Rofiat or Rough as she popularly is known can never do a thing to hurt her little sister. Rofiat and Halimat are the only children of their parents while their cousin Hadijat is the only child of Senator Adamu, her mother died while giving birth to her and her Father is more concerned about his political ambition which explains why Hadijat is such a spoilt brat, She spent most of her years growing up at Halimat and Rofiat’s house in Kaduna.
They had an awesome childhood together all three of them until when Rofiat first gained admission into the university and became really fierce, few years after Rofiat gained admission into the university, Halimat decided to attend the same university in order to see what really changed her sister, a year after that Hadijat also joined the both of them after a very long battle of trying for convince her dad who wanted her to go and school in the united states.
“Make una come inside” Kong said as he ushered Rofiat and Hadijat inside the Arch Angel’s mansion.
Rough walked in majestically while Hadijat just followed behind trembling at the faces she was seeing around, the house was filled with a lot of guys who were busy playing different types of games, some were seen smoking indian hemps, some were busy with their phones while some came to have a gist with Rofiat, Hadijat kept mute all through and kept her gaze fixed on the tv until Gentle walked in to join them in the sitting room.
“Rough da Rough, what’s up na” Gentle said as he greeted Rofiat in their traditional arch angel’s way.
“Am good brodaly, how you dey” Rofiat replied.
“I dey, So you know this woman” Gentle pointing towards Hadijat who was now standing on her feet.
“Am so sorry about yesterday, I really don’t know what came over me. Please forgive me for just this one time and I promise never to cross your path again” Hadijat recited one of the lines she read on Internet yesterday after Rofiat told her to check for apology speech, it’s really hilarious that she actually did surf the net for an apology speech.
“Apology not accepted” Said Slimmy as he walked into the sitting room clad in only a towel tied around his waist. Immediately he walked in, most of the guys hanging around in different corners of the large sitting room walked out one after the other.
Rofiat stood up immediately and kept her face to the ground knowing fully well that Slimmy doesn’t take it lightly when a lady stares into his face directly, Hadijat on the other hand couldn’t take her eyes off Slimmy’s abs.
“Don’t mind my brother, your apology is accepted” Gentle spoke after a long moment of silence.
“Rough” Slimmy called out.
“Yes boss” Rofiat replied.
“Who is she to you” He asked.
“My little cousin” she replied.
“Should I forgive her ?” Slimmy
“For my sake, please do boss” Rofiat.
“Rough da Rough” He said and smiled a for a while l “Okay I forgive her” he added.
“Thanks much boss, thanks so much Gentle” Rough said and signalled to Hadijat that they should start leaving.
“Leaving so soon?” Gentle asked.
“Yeah I have to drop her on campus for lectures very soon” Rofiat replied.
“Okay then, safe” Said Gentle to them as they walked out of the room.
“Kid bro, I think you like that little chick” Slimmy teased
“I have always told you I am your elder bro, I came out before you mennh” Gentle teased back.
“That’s because I sent you on an errand to see what the world looks like bro” Slimmy teased again but Gentle just walked away smiling knowing fully well that if they continued, he wasn’t going to ever win the argument about who is older between the both of them.
