For some minutes, I stood there dumbfounded like a girl 2face just cumed inside her..Why today ?? Why me..
Boo, better go and kill that chicken fast and do not delay me tori olohun” – My mum instructed as she continued with her cooking.. My sister was looking at me as she almost bursted into laughter…. She brought out her white tongue and widened her eye ,bringing her hands to her eyes …
I understood what she meant..she was making jest of me..
I was surprised …
The previous years, My father had always been the one killing the chickens ..when he was not around , we called uncle Dino, our neighbor to help with the herculian task..
But now we have moved to our own house..A silent ,mind your business, dey your own house kinda hood..Which neighbor we wan call on now to help us kill the chicken bai..
This was supposed to be the duty of a man…abi which kind family I enter so..I was just a boy..Jesus …Jesus.. If u can save me from this one , I will serve you forever
Boo, I will not tell you again with my mouth…- My mum shouted again and went to take the knife …Unfortunately for me, she picked the blunt yellow knife in the kitchen and gave it to me..
Oya, be fast so you and your sister can start pulling the feathers..
I could see tears of laughter almost coming out of my sister’s eye …..
I went out to the back of the house , near the generator to meet my victim, adored in white and legs tied with Ankara …poo was everywhere..I looked into the victim’s eye , the victim sef look back…
This is the Chicken here staring at me!!!! Shaking its head..this living thing is what my Father has asked me to murder in cold blood
