. Soft drinks and water were positioned at the center of the table. They ate silently As accustomed to them. The only sound heard with that of the cling of the metallic spoon on the Ceramic plate. The silent went on until Chief. Gavin's phone rang. It was martina so he picked the call almost immediately.

The way his eyes narrowed to him and the way his wrinkles folded more clarified a havoc. Its not usually ordinary When ever he put on that grimace.. People who knows him very well blatantly knows how to stay very far when ever that look appears on his face.
the older man screamed the moment he dropped the Phone on the table. Now all eyes were on him and they all look shuddered.
"how dare you!"
his bass voice snarled as he glared dreadfully at his son who was by now looking at the table timidly.
"what's the problem?"
Flora asked her husband with an obvious puzzle look on her face. Chief Gavin made less attempt to acknowledge her, he just kept glaring at Felix angrily, if eyes were gun, Felix would have by now admitted numerous bullets into his skull.
"what's wrong with you Felix? Why did you hit her? Are you out of your senses? "
"she caused it, she slapped my girlfriend"
"which girlfriend are you talking about?"
"tell me which one? Street girls? Cheap prostitute? Gold diggers? Tell me which one!"
Gavin yelled. Felix was burning like Hell inside. He can tolerate and accommodate what so every name or abuse given to him But when the abuse is fashioned for the one he loves, the patients was sure to die leaving the anger to explode like the fire in a volcano.
"Dad Mercy is not a Gold-digger, neither is she a prostitute! She is the Lady i Love so Mu..."
he received a plate of rice on his face before he could finish his statement. With that, every one yanked off the table apart from him (felix), he was still stricken with awe. The ceramic plate fell off to the tiled hard floor and broke into pieces. The rice splashed all over his body as the stew pasted perfectly on his face. He made attempt to remove the stew but on the process, a good amount of pepper found their way into his eyes.
"What did you know about Love?"
Gavin shouted. His wife ran over to him to calm his nerves while Mirabell went to his brother to lend him a helping hand. He poured water on his face and helped him wash off the stew.
"Look young man, Do good to bring that girl you called girl friend home for a formal recognition tomorrow"
Chief Gavin stated finally. He took his phone from the the table and headed to his room to have few glasses of whisky. At least that will help calm his nerves.
