WHERE IS TONIB?...STORY OF A DREAM COME TRUE!
« on: June 17, 2008, 05:00:24 PM »
[i stole this piece from beibee's blog]

I am the last person that would be afraid of spookies ? if at all they exist.
 
A cool night it was?here I was sleeping, or rather, lying on grandmother Atoke?s tile-made tomb: from womb to tomb, such is the journey of man. My grandmother had long been dead. The ants and like-species must have had a good meal while feeding on her body.
 
It was still night; the sky was in its darkest hue. The hovering clouds above shrouded even the brightest stars in the sky. The pervading atmosphere was thick gloom. Peculiarly as a recluse of sort, I dared to remain in the unholy darkness; outside the comfort of my room. Every member of my family was in the living-room having night-time t?te-?-t?te.
 
I was still on grandmother Atoke?s tomb. All of a sudden, I felt someone moving towards where I was?I felt it. I dismissed the thought. Still I heard sound of footsteps; the sound of the footsteps became louder; now I should take note. With the aid of my youthful eyes, I painstakingly screened the darkness; the oblivion had become obvious ? someone with a knife was coming in against me.
 
Before I could blink my eyes there appeared a long knife that glimmered in the dark; and it was descending?was it meant for me? Who on earth was holding this mortal weapon? Instinctively, I raised my body half-way, gave the knife-man a staggering blow in his groin. Oops! He managed a scream. Like the shrill of an insect.
 
There was palpable silence again. Could grandmother Atoke be watching this scene? I thought. Why such thought? As you should have known by now that I don?t believe dead folks are conscious of anything. Immediately, I got up from my resting place ? could not wait to see what the knife-man was up to next. I took to my heels. How far I had run I could not say?

Quite amazing: I was still where I was from the start of this tale – on grandmother Atoke’s tomb! The knife-man, the staggering blow and the knife…they were all in my dream. So I got up to join the rest of the family inside before the terrifying dream could take shape…
 
As I stood up I met a figure with a childish grin before me. Perhaps, he was one of the fellows who always came around to see my cousin, Olanajim. I frowned at him but his childish grin soon dissolved my contorted face. Then, I forced a smile that made me appear somewhat sheepish.
 
“It’s me sir – good evening”, he blurted out incoherently. I looked on with impatience for him to explain his mission
 
“Good evening. It’s me,” he repeated. I looked on with impatience, for him to explain his mission.

?Good evening. It?s me, Deeran. Olanajim?s pal,? he made sense. ?I came to take Tonib?home,? he added. Was he drunk? I decided to draw closer to him: to see if he were all right [for there was Tonib in the house at that hour; more so, my cousin ? Olanajim ? had been away for almost a month now]. How he stank! His whole body reeked of ?shepe? ? a very strong, addictive local gin.
 
Procrastination! I had been wasting my precious time attending to this zonked good-for-nothing fellow. I would tolerate him no further.
 
?Go home, young man. Have a rest ? and when you are sober you can continue your search for Tonib. Or what did you call her name??
 
?For now, I guess Tonib would take care of herself. So please, young man, go home!? I advised.
 
That incensed him.
 
?Are you crazy? You had better bring Tonib out! He lashed out. ?Or do you want me to cut you through ? before you will bring out Tonib??
 
Stab me? For what? This fellow must be terminally ill and silly. Who is Tonib? Where is she that I should bring her out? Confused, I racked my brain for a way out: I would ask him to wait while I go in to fetch his Tonib; there and then, I would be safe from his raging insanity.
 
?Okay. I?ll get Tonib for you. Just a minute??

As I made to go he grabbed me from behind, I was stunned. “You’ve seen a fool, not so?” he asked. Furious, I struggled to yank his sturdy hands off me but it only made matter worse: Wham! Wham! Wham! Three “dirty” slaps left me dazed and moaning.
 
Situation worsened. I heard Babel of drunken voices: “Deeran, what’s happening? Who’s struggling with you there?”
 
“It’s this stupid man!” he yelled out with a champion’s voice. It was conspiracy of the highest order; naked thuggery mixed with arrant insanity. My cousin, Olanajim was in the crazy crowd. I managed to recite Psalm 23 as I was punched and kicked – thrown hither-thither…rolling back and forth.
 
“Bei, are you OK?” a voice demanded.
“Please have mercy. Forgive me!” I begged in reply.
“Just open your eyes. You’re forgiven!” the voice simply stated.
 
I opened my eyes – could you believe it! Pretty amazing, I had only been enmeshed in the web of dream. What a dream…so real. Well, I was too glad it was all a dream.
