“Sir,i hope there is no problem?”Sonia asked
with a smile.
David scratched his head as his eyes ravaged
her body.Her pyjamas were quite revealing.
He shook his head.”Its just that i can’t sleep”
Sonia already understood what was going
on.She needed no soothsayer to tell her that
her charms were at work.Hence,the way he was
acting gave her morale a boost.
A mischievous smile played on her lips as she
gave out a little yawn,covering her mouth.
“Should i come and keep you company? Hope
you don’t mind”Sonia asked almost in a
David saw himself smile as he nodded in
approval.Sonia held his right hand with both
palms and off they went with smiles on their
David got int o the bed and exhaled deeply
while Sonia stood there moping at him.She
remembered the very same way Paul was
moping at her from one corner of the room
when she woke up on his bed.She closed her
eyes as the memories flashed in.
She knew it wasn’t just company she was going
to keep David that very night.She knew for sure
that something more than that must follow.
“Killing Paul is what i shouldn’t have done and
visiting him in the first place,a mistake i would
never forget”She thought.
“Come on.Don’t be scared”David urged her as
she climbed slowly into the bed,dropping her
phone in a comfortable position.
She was ready to accept whatever happens
She soon forgot about Ebere whom she knew
was listening.She knew the call would soon get
terminated when her airtime gets exhausted
and she wasn’t ready to pick her call,should she
call back because she carefully activated the
silent profile before dialling her line.
David’s phone rang.It was the second time the
phone was ringing but he was too busy to
answer it.He was busy with Sonia as they
moaned in pleasure on the soft foam.They were
far away on another planet.On another world of
bliss,pleasure and happiness.
When Angela dialled his phone the third time
and he didn’t answer.She smiled and
murmured some prayer for him and blew a kiss
into the phone.
It was getting dark.Angela seemed to be the
only human on that narrow bush part,because
looking forward,she saw nobody.Looking
back,nobody was in sight.She hastened her
steps before total darkness falls.
David had warned her about walking alone
through narrow paths.
She tried humming a tone but her instincts told
her to stop,for the fear of the unknown.
She halted and paid attention with her eyes.Her
heartbeat increased.She thought she saw
someone zoom out from one side of the bush to
the other side.She observed keenly but saw no
one.She turned back almost immediately but
saw no one.She forged ahead with increased
Few seconds later,two hefty young men
intercept her.One came out from the left side of
the bush while the other came out from the
right.The look on their faces proved they didn’t
come to play.
Angela turned with immediate effect and
started running for her dear life.They only
laughed and stood their ground.She managed
to look back at them,only to see them still
standing there but before she could face her
front again,alas,two men were already standing
in her way and so,because she saw them too
late,she couldn’t apply the brakes at her feet as
she hit them very hard and fell with a mighty
The other men joined them.Angela was on the
ground.Silent and motionless.One of them bent
close to her and chuckled.
“The babe don sleep”He announced.
“Abeg tow am for your shoulder make we
waka.No time.Delay is dangerous”Thunder,their
leader commanded and kissed his gun.
Angela opened her eyes only to find herself in
an uncompleted building.She coughed out loud
and held her breath for sometime.She couldn’t
stand the smell of the marijuana the men were
heavily smoking,as they puffed out mouthfuls of
its offensive smoke towards her.
“Where am i? David!
What are my doing here?…..”Angela kept
asking but they chose to categorise her
questions as rhetorical.They only looked at her
and continued with their smoking business as if
their life depended on it.As if they would never
get another chance to have it again.
Angela remembered what happened and how
she fainted.She placed a palm on her forehead
as a slight headache decided to answer her
“I wonder what is keeping this lady”Thunder
“I wonder o.Abi she think say na only this work
we get this night? Make she take her time
“Make she show naa make we waste this
“Haaa,please o.Don’t kill me.please let me go.I
did nothing wrong.please.please i am begging
you in the name of God,please…..”Angela cried
as she fell down on her kneels holding one of
them by the leg,begging and pleading with
tears flowing down her eyes.She didn’t care
about the smoke anymore.
“Woman leave me or i go molest you here.make
your choice”Chike the one she had ran
“Please i am begging you people in the name of
God.Don’t harm me please.I am innocent.Who
is this lady that wants me dead?
Please spare my life.I will pay you whatever you
want.my husband will pay.please don’t kill
“Quiet woman!.Go heaven and come back,you
are dying tonight.E no go pass dis
Angela covered her face in despair and cried
bitterly.She knew there was no way these men
would spare her life.
“Nooo.God please save meee”She sobbed on
