I stood at the gate fumbling with my keys, the lock seemed changed, the key didnt fit. I rang the bell....there was no response.  I took out my mobile pressed the number the phone was ringing. The cold chilly wind swept down on me, i shivered, "Hello" i said, "why have u called me"came the reply from the other end, not relaizing it was my dad, i said, "did you change the lock, the gate is not opening," "ofcourse not its the same have you taken the wrong key" dad asked. "Wait lemme try again" i said as i disconnected the line put the phone in my front pocket and tried again to unlock the gate, this time the key fitted and turned opening the lock, as i pushed the gate to go in.

I jumped startled as the ringtone of my mobile was on full volume, i saw it said "dad" "yea no problem the gate is opened, i am home now" he seemed satisfied with my sayhing so. I saw the garbage bag in the corner of the driveway, i put down my skool bag and picking up the garbage bag thought what the hell might as well get it over with. I walked about ten yards, throwing the bag into the bin which was already overflowing, "God i thought to myself, why dont the guys clean it up everyday". I looked around the street was empty except for a passing car, it sped away, i turned around and starting walking to my gate.

Cars were now speeding away behind me on the main road, i kept staring at my house. It was a double storied house, the outside was well lit, the wind had blown plastic bags all over the place a few had come stuck on the bushes in front of the gate. The wind had a strange whistling sound behind me, but then i heard"dont look around just take out your mobile and wallet and throw it on the ground" i immediately realized i was being heldup. I then realized the hollow purring of the motorbike. I took out my wallet and mobile and"turn and give it" i turned around. There were two guyz unshaven, one had a pistol pointed at me, he tried to look fierce but the other told him "lets go quick" i just handed over to them and then i saw a car driving slowly towards us. It was a honda civic white colour with about three people in the front, one took out his head and asked me"everything ok" the gunman quickly covered his pistol with his shawl he had over him"its cold, we were asking for directions" "then ask, the guy in the car shouted out to the gunman.
