Abu
Abu is very moody his notorious gang members Scorpion and Dragon joined him;
“Why are you quiet and contemplating? Are you thinking how to rape Beew Chief’ daughter?”

Abu
“Don’t be stupid and foolish I am on a more positive note I need money to become a ‘big boy’ that’ all and my father can help through Chief if he want to he has to do it or I’ll make his life miserable.”

Dragon
B0th Dra and Scorpi advised him to take it easy with his dad and not make life miserable for him;
“he is a very good dad and has taken care of you since your mom died 10 years ago when you were very young dialogue with him he will ask Chief to help.”

He offered him cigarettes but he declined;
“Boyfriend! What do you want to discuss with your dad?”

“That is a family secret I cannot share with you am sorry.”

Chief Almamy
Kawsu came to his dad and laid a complaint;
“It is about that rude man Buge he said I cannot marry his sister but he will marry mine how can that be? Buge has become a thorn in my flesh.”

Chief Almamy
“Sit down son let me explain to you about custom and tradition step down for him.”

Kawsu
“Dad unbelievable! Are you supporting him?”

Chief Almamy
“I am not am just explaining our custom and tradition Buge engaged your sister since their university days well before you meet Beew his sister so he cannot give way for you but instead you have to give way for him do it my son because that is what is right your wife will come wait for God’ time.”
