Two peas in a pod

You are me

Perhaps it’s a good thing

Until I find all of my flaws mirrored back at me.

In growing, we learn to be better

Not because we are running from who we are

Part 14: Come back to me

I could only be comforted afterwards by alcohol and the wild parties. Funmi was just right the person to keep me functioning in that new lifestyle. Omololu eventually came to know. There was only so much I could keep away from him. Despite the fact that he was getting busier with school and with The Brotherhood, he still made time to see me every now and again. He threatened to report me to Dan if I didn’t give up my mayhem. He must have thought the mention of Dan would make me snap out of my initiation but it angered me even more. … More Part 14: Come back to me
