She got to her lecture hall, turned around and gave them a stern look as she made her way to her lecture hall…..
The three musketeers, turned back and made their way back to their hostel…….
They kept following her where she went on campus. She was barely seen in company of anyone or group of people, she was always alone.
The most isolated place on campus, where people dare not go at a particular time of a day was where she often go to read at night.
Two months gone, yet the Three Musketeers kept troubling her life, by sending her threat messages or follow whenever she was going for lectures.
Mark was on his way for lecture one morning when he ran into her room mate.
“Morning Linda” Mark greeted… “Please, I’d like you to tell me more about your room mate, I don’t even know her name”.
“I’ve told your friend Tom that you guys should forget about that girl. She is evil, I stay with her, it is my prayers that’s been keeping me. If you see what she does, you won’t wanna have anything to do with her”. Linda told Mark….
“Does she have two heads? She is like every other lady on campus. We have seen worst people than she thinks she is, even mummy water herself, we have threesomed. Abegi, tell her make she park well, we have made our plans and arrangements. Very soon, we will chop her as well. Abeg, w€tin be her name? He asked finally….
“Lucifiana” Linda told him…..
“Lucifia gini? Hmmmmmm, if you think you can use the name to scare us, you are joking. Because whether she is a direct daughter of Lucifer himself, we just chop her”. Mark said bragging….
“I’m only warning you guys to be careful. There are a thousand and one ladies on campus, more pretty than she is. She’s not ordinary, do not say I didn’t warn you guys”. She told him and made her way to lecture….
Mark told her as she walked away “We have made up our minds, no be for this campus? Who doesn’t know the Three Musketeers, abi she wan tell me say she never hear? Make she just get ready….
(Three Musketeers’ Hostel)….
They were in their hostel later that evening talking as Mark told about what Linda had told them earlier that day…
“I ran into her room mate Linda this morning and guess what she said her name is?”. Mark asked….
“Her name no go pass Jeniffer na or Anabel. Na so them they behave”….. Tom said.
“That’s true, or even Mirabel, because that other babe wey we do, na so she too dey behave”. Alex added…
“Far from it guys, her name is Lucifiana”…. Said Mark as the others bursted into laughter….
“Abeg see name, is she the daughter of Lucifer, abeg make we hear something. She just said that to scare us away” Tom told them…..
Mark added “I don’t think so, she was serious about it. That’s her name”..
“To me, that name is lovely, I like it. The name is not common, and it sounds unique. The name don make me like her the more sef”. Alex said as he continued with what he was doing…..
“We have to hasten our plans guys, I don’t know why it is taking us this long to fire that Lucifer babe, she really needs to go into our history books”….Mark was affirmative while making the statement….
They continued following her everywhere she went to on campus. On this very day, Mark and his friends had gone out differently, they went on different mission. But it happened that she decided to give them a listening ear and she visited them same time.
She was with Mark, Tom and Alex at the same time. It was when they got home that they excitedly told each other about it.
“Guys, you won’t believe what happened today, while I was coming out from Coca Cola joint, guess who called me?” Tom asked in excitement..
Alex chipped in “Whoever, I couldn’t believe it when Lucifiana called me and said she has decided to listen to us. That I should tell her what we want from her”.
“Lucifia what, a lady that walked up to me in the student’s canteen and asked if I don’t want her again. This was around 5pm when I went to eat because I was so hungry”. Was Mark’s assertion…
“That was the exact time I was with her, I was even surprised how she got to know my name. But I took it to be as a result of our popularity on campus”. Tom added….
“Everyone don dey claim now, because I said she was with me. How can she be with all of us differently at the same time, she be witch? Anyway, she don agree to give us, she say make we arrange in two weeks time. Say she go open for us” Said Alex….
“Why she no go open? She go don hear about us na, and have decided to give in. I thought she is claiming hard to get?” Mark said smiling….
That was the beginning of their DOOM..
