Shadow (Enemy of the dark)

“Her bountiful posterior make me want to be a bounty hunter, you know your Aunt look sixteen..said Jokingly by Jimmy Asanimo but Isaac wasn’t taken it lightly
.
“Hunh hunh stop that Jimmy I only gave you my phone to view Margaret pictures now you are viewing more than you can chew replied isaac with a fist fierce face
.
Oh oh will you shut up! you murderer Roared Jimi
.
(Jimi’s voice startled Isaac that he almost fell off his mattress) what do do-do-do you mea..stammered Isaac
.
You just murdered proverb my dear friend it was actually “bite more than you can chew” not “view more than you can chew” Jimmy said amid laughter
.
Haha you are crazy and you wetin you mean by Posterior I was thinking you said my aunt Postinor hehehehehehe

They ended the night with laughs and taunting jokes. Jimmy Asanimo and Isaac Sanguine have been friends since their first year at the University of Ibadan, now at their final year the two microbiology geek have developed a new gene and bond of friendship over the years that rival the pastor and his bible, only few knew that they are not of the same bloodline as their physical attributes nearly niche them Siamese twins except they are not conjoined and Isaac only has a four packs (abs) to show for his six month gym training session whilst Jimmy was herculean. the two dark skinned 6ft men were born on the seventh month of the same year but on a different day such was the similarity of their life and fate. like isaac, Jimmy also lost his father when he was young and was brought up by his mother but to every great story there is a stale sad tale.

It is no news that Jimi was a womaniser even isaac had just won a bet last week sunday when Abraham said he trusted his fiancee that no man born of a woman can cut the ties between him and his fiancee. Abraham was the short dark university chapel chaplin that always wear suit all year long and he said this why preaching on the altar a sermon that will soon be alter as there laid Isaac who sat patiently like a hungry ram behind the usher at the last row. the usher was Timi the gawk looking MR SAINT, he was a friend of Isaac and after the church services they meet
.
Hope you enjoy the service today said Timi
.
Oh yeah thank you I always feel belle full after hearing the word of God Replied Isaac
.
You see I always say this the word of God is enough for the morning the night and noon it is of no ingredients and it is easy to digest, erm I have not been seeing your friend Jimi in church this days said confidently by Timi
.
Oh you know we are in our finals he was too preoccupied with assignment and less I forget, the chaplin was saying something about no one can cut the ties in his relationship—- (Timi cuts in)
.
Yes my friend you see Roseline and Abraham is the true definition of what God has joined together no man can put asunder I can put my last penny on the word of Abraham I believe God is using him so much

And the rest they said is history as Jimmy had bedded Roseline like the nursery does the seedling. Roseline was the fair lady with a wide gap tooth and the Lead chorister of the university Chapel, it wasn’t all Rosy for Jimmy but as a master in his craft he swept Rose off her feet like Diego does Paloma in the mexican folklore, his charming and appealing appearance couple with words from his mouth was said and deemed to be sugar coated trap, laced with unfulfilled but yet funfilled promises. But for Abraham it was another sermon about “how God will avert danger and tested you with calamities of great magnitude”

On the contrary Isaac was literally a shy homo sapien that always feel Alienated and spend most of his leisure time on the social media howbeit him and Jimmy are two of the three that will surely graduate with first class

And the rest they said is history as Jimmy had bedded Roseline like the nursery does the seedling. Roseline was the fair lady with a wide gap in her front tooth with a well erected stature little wonder how Abraham was able to rear her or maybe because she was the Lead chorister of the university Chapel?. it wasn’t all Rosy for Jimmy but as a master in his craft he swept Rose off her feet like Diego does Paloma in the mexican folklore, his charming and appealing appearance couple with words from his mouth was said and deemed to be sugar coated trap, laced with unfulfilled but yet funfilled promises. But for Abraham it was another sermon like tirade about “how God will avert danger and tested you with calamities of great magnitude”.

On the contrary Isaac was literally a shy homo-sapien that always feel Alienated and spend most of his leisure time on the social media he was liken to the one suffering from congenital trismus, howbeit him and Jimmy are two of the three that will surely graduate with the scarce first class from their faculty. and its of no news that Isaac was the best among the trident but he was always living the introvert life and is always quick to run to his shell making Jimmy and the other guy to always claimed the glory and praise as he couldn’t stand the scotching eagle eyes of the class anytime there is presentation he will instead stayed quiet and pretended he had nothing to say. unlike the outspoken Jimmy, Isaac was always single and has been crushing on Margaret for two years now.

It was a windy saturday morning and after a well prepared popular indonesian meal (indomie) by Isaac the artificial twins are throwing tantrum at each other in their well furnished condo courtesy of Mrs Sanguine, Mrs Foluke Sanguine was Isaac mother in her early forty with an Amazonian figure that sat well on her wafer-thin body she is the CEO of the renowned Sanguine micro Research centre. A well respected and reputable company whose main goal is to making research and finding natural cure to some illness with many breakthrough achieved it is safe to say they are a company to reckoned with. little wonder how easy it was for Isaac to be a nerd.

The church services was at is usual premium best, with powerful redention and melodious numbers from the Chorister Lead by Roseline, it was a sexy scenery for Jimmy and a morale booster for Isaac. Abraham was there to deliver a wonderful sermon he topic it “Your Best Friend is your Enemy” with most word directed to Jimmy and Isaac but yet they failed to pick a lesson from it they instead arbour hatred and disdain towards Abraham and made a vow never to attend the church again. a vow they uphold till their Graduation Church ceremony. They left the church before Abraham could share the grace, they didn’t discuss much about Abraham sermon either than the centre his sermon around them all because they snatch his fiancee from him.
They spent the rest of the day quietly and solemnly in their condo and Monday came quite very fast with the vast Isaac deciding to stay put while Jimmy went to school to make the presentation designed by Isaac albeit he took all the glory.

*two weeks later*

it was their Church Graduation ceremony graced by various notable dignitaries including Mrs Idido Asanimo, Mrs Idido was Jimmy mother and she run the popular Lass hostel cartel an abode for sex workers thus erasing the question mark on Jimmy promiscuous life she was in her customary mercury-red hair that tumbled over her shoulders which make her the cynosure of eyes, Mrs Sanguine was excused from the ceremony citing work issues. the two tellurians graduated in the popular unseen colour, the “flying colour” and well sketch on their progenitor face was satisfaction and happiness, Econmium kept pouring in for the two as they savor the moment.

Mrs Sanguine offer Jimmy a nine-to-five in her company whilst Isaac was bent on becoming a man on his own without the help of his mother he had move out of the house few month after graduation but his introvert nature was his bane as he failed many interviews and day by day his failure had led to depressions and frustrations albeit Jimmy was living his dream but soon his dream will turn to a nightmare.
it all started on a work loaded monday that resulted in him spending the rest of the night at Mrs Sanguine house. The house was a lone house and Mrs Sanguine and the gate man are the only occupants ever since Isaac left.

Push your friends to the positive side no matter how sweet the negativity is visit their dark side and then maybe the world we be a better place for all of us and ask your neighbour what type of friend are you to me?”

  3. Your best friend is your enemy …yes, indeed. They can beat the test of time buh nemesis wil surely catch-up. Generally, its more like a lesson to friends who indulges or who encourages other friends in doing obviously what is not right.
