Nnanna watched as the young girl reached up to kiss her boyfriend goodbye. Somehow, he just knew something had gone down in the sheets. His mind took him down memory lane. Those days of plucking the unripe mangoes and eating them with salt. 'Chai!, he thought, "I've lived life o. Wetin man no enjoy?" He smiled, walked to his car and drove off...thinking of the girls he made cry, the girls he interchanged with his friends, the ones he refused to marry because they weren't virgins, the line of girls foolish enough to have fallen for his wiles and graced his bed, his long list of 'used and dumped girls'. "Those were the days men", he thought, smiling. "Thank God I have a decent daughter".
He reached home, got down from his car and walked into the house....only for him to see Uju on the sofa with Bolanle on top of her, writhing. With the strength of a boar, he ripped Bolanle off and laced him with blows, screaming "How dare you defile my daughter in my house! You idiot! I will teach you today". Uju rushed into her room to get herself covered while Bolanle got on his knees admist the punches begging, "Oga, no vex. No vex Oga. I no go do am again. Na mistake. No be first knack am sef. Na Jide tell me say Uju dey give am free, say make I go try my luck. I no no say you go vex Oga."
At this point, Nnanna was as angry as he was embarrased. That his own precious Uju was like the foolish girls he straffed those days....and even worse. And he heard the sweetly annoying voice of his conscience whisper to him, "Bros, calm down. You don do your own. Make little bros do too. No be only you come this world to enjoy jare. No be only you waka come".
And he asked himself, "Is this what Karma looks like?".
Hehehe. He who has ears let him hear!
But I can't help wondering, does Karma really exist or does it just arbitrarily pick and choose? I ask because I have a list of people it's missed...
