THE KEY WAHALA (Episode 1)

6:30am– It happened on a
Monday. Very early in
the morning, my Dad
woke up as usual and
started to dress up for
work. By 6.30am he was ready for work.


He then
took his time to sort out
some papers. I think
these papers had
something to do with his
work. It was almost 7am when he locked up
his suit case and left the
bedroom.


Mum was still
sleeping when he closed
the door behind him. In the sitting room, he
walked straight to the
exit door, realized that
the door was still locked.


"Oh!" he exclaimed and
walked straight to the
dining table where the
exit door key was
normally kept, but it
wasn't there. He got a little frustrated
as he began to search all
over the sitting room for
the key. It was no
where to be found. He
dropped his suitcase on the seat and angrily
walked back into the
sitting room where Mum
was still sleeping.

"Where on earth would
someone keep the exit
door key if not in the
sitting room?" he said to
Mum who was already
half awake. She moaned and slowly said,

"Not everybody
wakes up as early as
you do, you know?"

"This is almost 7am and
it's not early. I just need
to know where the key
is so that I can go to
work; I have a very
important meeting this morning."

"It should be in the
sitting room, I think I
kept it there after I
locked up last night," she
said as she slowly got up
from the bed.

"You think?" he starred
at her in disbelieve,
"where you drunk last
night?" He asked' She
ignored him and walked
out of the bedroom, into
the sitting room. He
followed her. She searched every nook
and cranny of the sitting
room, while my Dad
watched her in anger.


But she didn't find the
key. "Where else would this
key be if not here?" she
said, more to herself as
she looked around
helplessly.

"I am really sure I kept it
here." Daddy impatiently
looked at his wrist
watch,

"Oh my God,"
7:10am. what is the
meaning of all this?"… John walked into the
sitting room. He was
already in his school
uniform. My Dad might
be a huge income
earner, but John never looked it. His dressing
was always shabby and
he most times preferred
flying his shirt with his
sandals dirty. I can't
remember Dad or Mum ever saying something
about it. Of course Dad
was never around to
notice and Mum hardly
talks.

"Good morning Mum,
Good morning Dad," he
said and walked
towards the kitchen.

"Did you see the exit
door key?" Dad asked
without responding to
his salutation. John stopped starring at
them in confusion; he
was never comfortable
around them. They have
a way of intimidating
him and this makes him somehow act guilty
around them. One can
easily blame him for
anything because of the
way he acted around
them.

"Key?, No Dad, I wasn't
the last person to go to
bed, I have no idea
where the key is." Dad continued to look
around the sitting room
like John was never
there in the first place.

He looked at the wall
clock in the sitting room
and murmured, "Just
imagine, I should be on
my way to the office by
now. What nonsense is this?" Mum was still busy
searching. She was
saying some things to
herself nobody could
hear. She was sure she
kept the key on the dining table after she
locked up last night.


"Woman, what exactly
do you want me to do
right now? Just try and
remember where you
kept this key so that I
can go to my office and get ready for the
meeting." Dad said to
her. "I am very sure I kept
the key here. Yes, I
remember opening the
door for you when you
came home last night. I
locked it immediately and dropped it on the
dining table before
going to sleep. Linda
was doing her home
work on the table when
i dropped it, while Ada was playing with her
cell phone on the long
seat here." She said
thoughtfully.

"LINDA!!" Dad called my
name…
