Episode 05.

The car came to a stop at the side of the road and Joe finally looked at Simeon,
“Can you now tell me why I suddenly disappeared on the street? What the hell happened to me because I can’t remember anything” Simeon asked.

“You can’t remember? You must be a weakling” Joe replied.

“That’s an insult. You know what, I’m done” Simeon said with his hands up and his friend burst out laughing at him.

“Done with what huh when we just started. Guy reggae never even start and you’re done, how is that possible?” Joe asked hitting Simeon on his shoulder and he scoffed and angrily held his hand

“If you dare come close to me again, I’ll forget we were friends. Stay clear from me and my family and to hell with you!” Simeon shouted.

“You don’t mean that do you? You’ve gone far now to back down, you’re already in” Joe said.

“Am I? Well I don’t care anymore and for your question, Take that as a warning” Simeon replied and left the car, that was when he realized he had no dime on him to take him home and Joe drove far from home. He sighed as he thought of how he will trek back home at such a late hour and Joe horned at him.

“Hop in let’s go home,” Joe said but Simeon’s ego won’t let him.

“I can manage on my own” Simeon said as he trekked.

“You won’t let your wife know you sneaked out of the house right? Don’t worry I’ll let you be but let me drop you home” Joe insisted driving slowly behind.

“Wow, that’s so thoughtful of you yet you dumped me on the street to be picked as a drunk huh?” Simeon asked.

“Is that your annoyance? Okay, I’m sorry but it was not intentional and I don’t need to explain what happened either” Joe replied and a piercing headache came upon Simeon that he screamed holding his head as he bent down.

“Hey, are you okay?” Joe asked leaving his car to hold him but Simeon beats his hand off.

“Don’t touch me!” Simeon shouted.

“Will you let me take you back home? I don’t want to be responsible if anything bad happens to you and again I’m out of your life for good okay!” Joe angrily shouted and the headache came again. Simeon had no choice but to hop into Joe’s car, when they were approaching Simeon street, Joe decided to drop him off there.

“You can manage from here right?” Joe asked and Simeon nodded and left the car.

“Call me if something comes up,” Joe said.

“There won’t be anything to worry you about,” Simeon said and Joe smiled and drove off.

Getting to his street he noticed flames emanating from somewhere and he hurried his steps to see what was going on as people began coming out of their houses.

“Simeon you’re here!” A guy shouted when he saw him.

“Why? Whose house is on fire?” Simeon asked.

“I heard It’s from your compound” the guy replied.

“It’s from my what!” Simeon shouted and took to his heels, and behold it was coming from his very house.

Simeon pushed his way screaming as he attempted to go into the fire but people held him,
“The fire is too high, though we are trying to see how we can break in!” A man shouted at Simeon as he kept struggling.

“My family is inside, I can’t just stand and do nothing!” Simeon shouted back as he saw some guys trying to break the door open. He released himself from their grip and ran to the door hitting it with his legs and after a few minutes, the door opened. The whole house was full of flames and he could hear his wife coughing,

“Dear, where are you?” Simeon asked as the neighborhood threw in what they think can quench the fire.
Simeon saw his wife covered on the children and they were carried outside. Seeing the sight of his family he staggered backward in shock. His children were badly burnt and were not breathing, and his wife was struggling to breathe.

“No! No no this can’t happen!” Simeon screamed out scared to touch them and they were quickly rushed to the hospital.

His children were confirmed dead upon arrival while his wife was in critical condition.
“I don’t understand, what caused the fire? The speed at which the fire took to go high within a few minutes was alarming and we could not open the doors despite we heard your wife’s screams” a neighbor said as they consoled Simeon.

“Call me if something comes up” Simeon remembered Joe’s voice and he wondered why Joe wanted him out of the house that night for no reason and why he smiled at him before taking off.

“JOE!!!” Simeon screamed and stood up from the floor he sat.
“I’ll make you pay for this!” Joe violently said folding his fist and running away from the hospital.

“Simeon! Simeon!” His neighbors kept calling but He didn’t look back.

As Simeon ran on the road like a wounded bear, he saw that he has been a fool for the friend he thought Joe was, he has no idea where he stayed. He suddenly stopped breathing hard as he wondered how he can find him, then he remembered the said Lord place he took him to. He quickly stopped a cab and got in hoping he could see the man.

He got to the gate and banged on it repeatedly until it was open, then he tried pushing himself inside but a gun was pointed at him.
“One more step and your brain will be blown to the ground” a guy sternly said.

“Is this how you treat a guest? Go ahead and blow it off! Go ahead!” Simeon shouted at his face.

“Let him in,” a voice said inside and Simeon pushed his way in and met Joe with the man.

“You bas*ard!” Simeon screamed jumping on Joe’s body and throwing him heavily to the ground and the guards around quickly held Simeon.

“How could you touch them,? How could you touch my family when you promised they won’t be affected? You could have just killed me, take my life and bring back my children!” Simeon cried out struggling with the guards.

“Joe has nothing to do with this, you asked for a very hard one and your request was granted with the sacrifice powerful enough to bring your wish to pass,” the man said.

“It was for them! What’s the need of the money when they are gone? You killed them,! He ruined my life!” Simeon shouted.

“Your lips did when you asked for bastard money, bed of silver and street of gold, you think that’s a plate of beans huh? Do you think that will come easily with no exchange? I have always known you to be a greedy person and you used your hand to finish yourself so don’t blame me for your misfortune” Joe spoke up and Simeon struggled like a wild bear to get to him.

“You got me drunk for a reason, you knew this will happen!” Simeon said breathing hard.

“Yes, so what will you do now? Your family is dead, does it hurt? Don’t think I have forgotten what you did to me in the past, there’s no better revenge than this!” Joe shouted back and Simeon gasped and fell to his knees in shock as his eyes bulged out.

“It was me not them, didn’t you pity those cute souls? It was me not them” Simeon cried.

“It’s too late, but I was too kind at least I elevated you from poverty and you can always get married again. Congratulations man!” Joe said tapping him and nodded to the guards who quickly covered a cloth on Simeon’s head.

“I’ll kill you, Joe, I’ll kill all of you, that’s a promise!” Simeon screamed out.

“Really? That’s a strong word from a colleague and it won’t be taken lightly. You’ll be my guest Simeon, don’t worry I’ll treat you well” Joe said.

“Arrghhh I’ll kill you all!” Simeon screamed and a guard knocked him off and took him away while Joe smirked smiling to himself.
