His sight was blur, he has had too much, he knew that for a fact, the alcohol was beginning to intoxicate him, she wasnt worth it, she wasnt worth dying for, but he loved her and he still do and that annoyed him, he gritted his teeth and bit his lower lip, the sound of people gigling from the other seats made him more angry"cant this people  just go out and find something better to do"he muttered to himself.. 

 

He wipe his eyes with his hands, he tried to stand up from the chair but then he fell down back"How could she do this to me, how could she abandon me like that"he muttered and slam the table furiously with his hands.. 

 

He snort as people began to fuse their attention on him, he couldn't take it, couldn't take the heart break, slowly he stood up from the chair not minding if he was the cynosure of all eyes, he staggered to the counter, there he climbed in a chair and looked up at the bar man.. 

 

He just sat staring at him, he was inclined to pour his frustration on him, he knew for a fact that after this he may never heal from the injuries that she devil have inflicted on him, he tried to speak but no words seems to come out, he wipe his eyes with his palm then he finally spoke up "Give me a drink"....

 

The barman looked at him, he knew for a fact,this man was drunk and anymore of what he has been drinking will make him go mad"Sir i think you relax a bit... "

 

The man grew furious, he was inclined to pounce on him and give him whatever he was feeling,he was burning inside  and the bottle of alcohol was the only water that can quench this burning sensation of anger he was feeling inside of him"i said give me another drink "he blared out..

 

The barman grunts, he knew if he didnt do what he ask, he might cause a scene and that would jeopardize his job..... "if you wish"he said in a faint voice as he gave him the same bottle of alcohol he is been drinking, he placed it in front of him and opened it.. 

 

Without hesitation the man grab the bottle and began to pour it on his mouth, he could feel the hotness of the  alcohol as it gulp down his throat.... He drop the bottle,memories of the time they have spent together began to creep into his head, how could she forget all the promises they have made to each other, his friends had warned him about her but he didn't listen, now he was facing the consequences for his actions... 

 

He poured the drink in his mouth again, this time not minding the hotness of the content, he drank to a point and he felt he couldn't take it anymore, he dropped the bottle furiously that the bottle almost broke.. 

 

He needed to get out of here, get out of this world he was creating for himself, he jumped down from the chair, he could perceive the smell of alcohol that protrude from his mouth.... 

 

"Sir you havent paid for any of the drinks you collected "the barman said when he knew the man was ready to walk out.. 

 

The man grunts, then he hissed at the barman statement"How much is your bill?, he said with shaking mouth...

 

"Ten thousand five hundred naira sir"

 

The man staggered as he dip his hands in his pocket, he brought out his wallet, he tried to open it, when he realise his hands were shaking  he handed it over to the barman"Take your money and give me back my change"he blared out.. 

 

The barman opened the the wallet, he open his mouth in astonishment as he saw bunch of one thousand naira new notes, he remove the cash from the wallet, then he counted it, it was fifty six thousand naira, the barman knew this was his moment, the man was drunk and he wouldn't even know if extra money was taking from him... When he gets his sense back he will think he must have misplaced it somewhere... He steer at the man who was shaking from his balance"your change is one thousand naira sir"the barman said and gave him the one thousand naira.. 

 

The man collected it without hesitation, then he staggered out of the bar kicking chairs on his way out.... 

 

Excitement overwhelmed the barman, he looked  at the rest drinking and then he began to pray they become very drunk so he can extort money from them... He looked at the cash in his hands and then he congratulate himself for been so smart... 

 

 the man stood at the doorpost of the bar, his sight was blur... He couldn't see clearly, he began to staggered as he began to find his car.... The he finally saw it.. He dip his hands in his pocket and took out his car keys, he immediately opened the car and sat on the drivers seat.... Her memory hunt him.. He wasnt going to forget her easily... And might hunt him till the day he dies.... He started the car, close the door and began to drive out.. Carefully he managed to avoid hitting other peoples car... He increase the speed when he was on the highway.... He was frustrated, he wasnt thinking staight.... He wanted to stop but the brakes failed... He just keep driving.. Wanting to dodge a truck on speed, he diverted the steering into the bush, then speedily diverted into the bush... He march on the brakes again but it failed.... There and then he knew it was all over.... The car speedily hit a tree..... 

 

Blood flowed from the mans head.... He tried to speak but words failed... He grimaced... Breathe heavily.... Then he finally gave up the ghost....
