Sandra was reading when Famous walked inside the living room.

“Hey” he sat down beside her.

“Hey” she looked at him.

“So what are your plans for today?” He asked.

“Wow… That’s a first. Open mic, Frieda and I are going” she said.

“Hmm… I don’t really like open mic but I’ll go”

Sandra stared at her brother.
“You hate open mic, why the sudden change of mind?” She asked.

“There’s a first time for everything. Before I completely hate it, I should try going first and see how it is”

“That’s nice” she smiled and went back to her book.

“Yeah, what time does it starts?”


“Okay, I’ll be back by then”


Philip got to his apartment towards evening.

He met his cousin playing games with his ex, Violet.

He sighed heavily and made to pass them by.

“Don’t act like you didn’t see us Phil. A hello would be nice” She said, still focused on the game of checkers.

“First of all, you’ve lost all right to call me Phil, it’s Philip now and secondly, what are you doing here?”

“I came to check up on any unlucky soul you might have hand-picked to destroy” she stood up and faced him.
“I’m out for you Philip” she folded her hands under her b**bs and tilted her head.

“So you’re gonna be stalking me from now on, is that it?”

“Yes, I’ll make sure you never succeed”

“I’ve changed, okay? Now stop bothering me”

“You haven’t and I’ll keep on destroying any thing you try to have. Mark my words”

His cousin, Hudson just sat down listening to them exchanging words.

“Shall we?” Violet asked as she sat down with a smile.


They continued their game while Philip went inside, not after glaring at her.

He changed into something comfortable after having a bath.

“I’m going out, make sure you’re out of here before I’m back” he said and closed the door behind him.

“I don’t know what to do anymore” Violet sighed disappointedly. “My threats aren’t getting to him at all”

“Listen Vi, he’ll change when he’s ready. You can’t force it”

“How many people has to get hurt before he’ll change?”

“I don’t know. We just have to keep hoping he will before the worst happens”

Hudson rested his back on the couch.
“Looks like he ruined the mood”

“Yeah, he always does. Sometimes I feel like punching him in the face”

“It hasn’t gotten to that point. You’ll kill him” he laughed.

“It’s not funny” she nudged him with her elbow.

They stay silent for a while.

“It’s really hard yunno” she spoke.

He placed his hand on hers.
“Not that hard now”

She smiled and rested her head on his shoulder.

“Wow” was what escaped Frieda’s lips as she and Sandra entered the open mic house.

The cool slow song was really welcoming. The lights were amazing too.

She looked around in amazement.

“You like it?” Sandra asked.

“Yeah, it’s cool”

“Let’s get a table”

They sat round an empty table.

Frieda looked towards the stage. The performer was still performing.

“I love the song” Frieda shouted to the hearing of Sandra.

“Yeah me too. It’s great”

They both sat down watching artistes perform one after the other. It was really an amazing evening.

Just then, Famous approached.

“Evening ladies” he greeted and sat down beside his sister.

“Hi” Frieda waved.

“Thought you changed your mind” Sandra said.

He shook his head.

They sat still listening to more songs and poems.

“So what do you think Famous? Cool, huh?” Sandra asked.

“It’s not so bad” he shrugged.

He looked at Frieda but she was staring at the artiste.

‘Such beauty’ he thought.

“So uhm…. Frieda” he said and she turned to him.
“We haven’t really introduced ourselves formally, my name’s Famous”


“Pleasure to meet you”

“Nice meeting you too”

“So…. ” he was about to say something when someone interrupted them.

“Good evening”

Philip greeted as he stood beside Frieda with his hand in his hoodie.

“Oh hi” Sandra waved.
“Get down” she continued.

He sat down beside Frieda.
“The almighty Frieda, it’s great seeing you again”

“Almighty?” She asked.

“Yup, that’s what we call you now”

“I’m not that mighty” she looked down shyly at her fingers which were on her lap.

“Of course you are” he nudged her and smiled.

Famous didn’t like the fact that Philip was there.

“No drinks? Come on girls, it’s open mic, don’t you wanna enjoy yourselves?”

He looked at Famous.
“Oh hey Famous, didn’t see you there” he smirked.

“Of course you didn’t”

They stayed quiet for a while, which was really awkward to Frieda.

“So about the drinks….” Frieda said.

“I’ll get it” the boys said simultaneously and then looked at each other.

Sandra and Frieda also looked at each other.

‘This is awkward’ Frieda thought.

“Sandra will choose who gets the drink” Famous said.

“What?! I can’t do that” she said in a whisper.

“Fine then, Frieda will choose” Famous said and looked at her.

Frieda hesitated before speaking up.

“Fine, I know who’ll get the drinks”

She looked at each one of them.

Who gets the drink?
Famous or Philip 😁
