“Hey baby girl, how you dey?”
The lady continued walking without looking back.
“Ba….bay, na you I dey talk to nau.” The guy stood up and crooned after the lady.
His friends who were sitting behind burst into laughter when they noticed that she refused to pay him any attention.
He looked back at his friends and gave them a peace sign with his fingers. He adjusted his collar and moved closer to her. He tapped her on the shoulder and she turned back; a disgusted look on her face.
“Ahn….ahn, why you come dey do shakara nau? No be you I dey call?” The guy smiled revealing a yellowed set of teeth.
“Excuse me? Please could you take your hands off me?” The lady said as she brushed his hand off her shoulder.
She turned and was about walking away. He looked back at his friends and winked as he walked ahead of her and stood in front of her blocking her way.
“What is the meaning of this?” She asked.
“I dey call you, at least you go answer person.”
She turned to take her left and the guy blocked her way again.
“Get out of my way.” She said to him in anger.
“Ahn….ahn….wetin? Because person like you, you come dey feel important, abi?”
The lady looked at him, her eyes narrowing into slits. She tried to walk around him again but he blocked her way a third time.
He raised his hand and was about to touch her again when in the twinkling of an eye, she held his hand in mid-air and twisted it towards his back. He screamed in pain as he bent half-way. He was about to look up at her when she used her right leg to kick him off his feet.
He grimaced as he hit the ground.
“Woo-hoo.” His friends who had been watching the drama between the two shouted.
The lady clapped her hands together, shook off the dust on her shoes as she looked at the guy who had stood up and broken into a run with his hand on his waist.
She looked at his friends who all raised up their hands immediately in surrender.
She turned back to go on her way as she smiled.
Her karate skills hadn’t become rusty.
