I relaxed on one of the sofas. I needed to line my thoughts in one direction. A lot of plans have been structured. The process and sequence is the part I needed to feast on.
"Give it back, it's mine!" David yelled as he ran down the stairs pursuing someone; I guess Abigail.
"I take this as your apology." She shouted back.
I was right!..
"Seriously, I can give anything you want but not my hair dryer." He shouted as I opened my eyes. All these ruckus for hair dryer? Seriously David?
"You know it's different from the one here. I am the female here." She argued back as he shrugged.
"Well, i'm the one with the loose hair. You are making braids babe." He retorted as I shouted. I couldn't take it anymore.
"Can you guys both turn it down. You just disrupted my stream of thoughts. I really don't like that." I shouted as they nodded. After a few minutes silence, Abigail started again. I groaned as I grabbed my keys and jacket. I headed out only to meet Eric at the doorstep.
"Is something wrong?" He questioned as I shook my head.
"They have turned the house into a playground. A lot of noise over an ordinary hair dryer. I am leaving before I break some bones." I said as Eric chuckled.
"Careful dude, you don't wanna get lost." He winked as I rolled my eyes.
I decided to park to park very close to the tree. The breeze was nothing like over there but it's cool. I had my thoughts brought to focus for an hour and I enjoyed the serene conversation between nature and I till an agressive knock to my window disrupted it again.
I opened my eyes. What? A female officer? Well, she should be female from the curves of her body. I really can't see the face. I rolled the window down as she bent slowly. Our eyes met and enlarged. I took in the beauty of her face. I guess she did the same because she spent a good number of minute staring at my face. I recovered first and decided to use that against her.
"Hey, did you knock on my window to stare at my face?" I queried as she blinked.
"What? No!" She said adjusting herself.
"So, what? I was meditating you know?" I argued as she opened the door.
"Can you step down?" She stated as I glared.
"You already opened the door. That's rude you know?" I frowned as she pulled my hand.
"I don't have the time for this. We need to search this car!" She said sternly as I glared.
"Wait, what?" I retorted as she tried pulling me up. She dragged my legs outside so I was directly facing her. So it would be easier for her to pull me up, I guess. The smirk in my face was evident. Did she really think she could pull me with that body?
She opened the door wide apart and bent a little low to pull me up when I controlled her hands and pulled her towards me. She fell on me as I fell backwards. It wasn't convenient as there were partitions between the two seats. I only wanted to tease her not fall her down. Damn! She raised her head slowly to meet my eyes. And there was another feat of silent stare between us two.
"What did you just do?" She spoke trying to stand up. That was when we both realized that I had my hands on her waist. I removed them and looked away giving her space to get up as I got out of the car too.
"Hmmm..." She cleared her throat as she sticked her hands in her back pocket. Her face was flustered and I couldn't say anything either. I really shouldn't have...
We suddenly heard gun shots as we jerked up. I traced her eyes to the rest of her team. They were fidgeting already. "What's happening?" I asked as she turned to me.
"I guess it's not you. I came here to catch gang of thieves who just robbed with the same vehicle." She explained as I nodded...
"You go in. It's dangerous to stand outside." She said as she was tracing the whole thing with her eyes. A car exactly like mine suddenly burst out of the bush with full speed.
"That's them." She signalled to her people as I pulled her hands. "What are you doing?" She questioned as I opened the passenger's seat and pushed her into it before jogging towards the driver's side.
"You have to catch them, don't you?" I looked at her before igniting it and moving with a high speed also.
"Hey, you could get hurt. It's dangerous. I would just follow the vehicle." She complained as we suddenly got to see the thieves' vehicle.
"Over here... Turn around... No, no, the right." She shouted, giving me directions as I chuckled. Imagine her telling me to drop her a while ago. She looked so focused. Her hands properly fisted her pistol. Her eyes carried no enotions. She was ready for war. We suddenly saw their cars parked near an uncompleted building.
"Thank you. I am going in." She said as she opened the door, wanting to go when I pulled her back.
"Are you really going to go in yourself? What if they gang up and rape you or something. What if..." She cut me off with a stern look.
"I can't let those criminals finish up their deal. I need to get there. Let me go." She argued as I released her hands.
"Then I will go with you." I already got down from the car. To those who desperately need to know why I was doing this, the answer was very clear. I needed to...
"Are you silly? I can't risk a citizen life. Get into the car." She warned as I began to walk up the stairs to the building. "You can't get hurt. Promise me?" She said as I nodded. The place was spooky itself.
"Are you sure they are here?" I asked as the doors suddenly closed. The window were shut too. She turned around figuring that she walked herself into a trap.
"Wait, I smell petrol. Are they?" She said as my eyes enlarged. I can't die now. The revenge needed to be carried. I ran to the windows banging and hoping it would open. Someone needed to come and save us.
"Seriously, let's call for help. I can't let you die." She cried as she was violently pressing her phone. What? Wasn't she worried about herself?
"Aren't you worried about yourself? You could die too!" I clarified as she shrugged.
"It's my job not yours. And, I dragged you into this mess." She frowned passing her hand through her long hair. It's a wig, I guess.
"I can see a guy passing. He seems to be the only one. We can still break through the ceiling. He is not going to wet the ceiling, I guess." I chipped in as she turned.
"That's right! You need to get out before the others arrive! Get out now!!!"
"I can't leave!" I replied as she was taken aback
"Wait, what?" She stuttered
"They are here! Damn it!" Uh-oh!
Four -- EwawummiI had never really seen someone like this before. Why was he involving himself with the whole issue. Was he really going to die today?"What do we do?" I asked as he looked at me. His handsome face was another thing that keeps me off my mind."We would need to go over the roof. That's the best way because before the building burns up to the roof, we should have come up with something." He said as I nodded and followed him when he pulled my hands.For a long while, no guy had ever held my hand. I can't count the number of times he held me today."He searched through the building and we were lucky to have found a ladder. He rested it firmly on a wall before telling me to go up."Wait, what? Am I to go up first?" I questioned suddenly feeling annoyed."Yeah, of course. I need to assist you and stop you from falling." H
Five - Iseoluwa. I opened the door as they all turned to me. I was sorry to have worried them all. Eric walked towards me with pure anger that I wanted to move backwards."Seriously Ish? You move out of the house to get fresh air and you come back this late at night without a call?" He shouted as I closed my eyes. I don't need to deal with this right now. I had been through worse."We would talk about it later." I said sternly as I walked away."What do you think you are doing? We waited and stayed all night expecting you and all you do is walk away? Do you ever think about us?" He said as I stopped holding fast to the stairs handle. I really can't deal with this. I might end up becoming unconscious which would make you more worried."Believe what you want, Eric. I said later. I never said I wasn't going to tell you." I took another step trying very hard to control my breathing. I don't
Six -- Kunle"For real, what's the issue?" She asked as I sighed. I really don't have to explain. Why can't people understand me? I had the right to live in any way I want."Kunle, I am talking to you!" She shouted as I glared."Don't act like you care! Besides, I have been accepted into the force already. And you know that I am definitely going to resume." I finally said as she gasped."What do you mean that I don't care? How can you even say that? You are my son!" She said as I flared up."Mom!! You really don't have to state that annoying fact! Please leave while I am being nice. I need to pack up." I said walking deeper into my room. I heard the room door shut indicating that she had gone out. I slumped on my bed shutting my eyes.Did she really have to play dumb? I know about it all!A knock suddenly distracted my thoughts as I sat up. Did she perha
Seven -- IseoluwaI walked into their room with a frown on my face. Abigail was already in too."What's wrong Ish?" Eric said noticing my mood."Nothing much. I was vexed by the guy who stays next to me. He called himself a cop or something. Pretty sure he isn't." I huffed before laying down on David's bed."Wow! Are you angry?" David teased as I glared at him before he turned with a smile."But is he really a cop?" Abigail chipped in as I shook my head."Nah, he can't be! He would rather work as a waiter." I said as they all bursted into laughter. I just shrugged. The energy that radiated off him wasn't good."So,"... I sat up. "About Badejo, I made some personal research about him. I removed the files from my bag and distributed them. They all looked through it carefully."We can see that seven years ago, he was given a task by the governmen
Eight -- KunleI drove straight to the station. Just as I expected, it was a big one. After I carefully parked my vehicle. I walked into it with the necessary information I needed to carry.I met two officers at the front door. "Hi, morning!" I greeted as I walked away not before I heard them whispering to each other.'He must be the new officer. I pity him. He is working under boss himself.'Not letting their talk get to me, I was directed to the main office where I met a lot of officers. They greeted me as I answered politely before asking for the direction to His office.I entered after he instructed me too. His pose strike a resemblance to a warrior. I gave him a smile before stating my name once again. I already stated it when I knocked earlier."Alright. I am sure you must have heard. You work directly under my authority. Your office is next door. I believe all your necessary
Nine- Iseoluwa"I got information about his son just as you have asked. Guess what guys? He is an addict." David said with a scoff as I sat up. What more could you expect from a spoilt kid like him. I rolled my eyes in disgust."Also, he just returned from Canada. He was said to have been studying but his father sent him to a rehabilitation centre." He added as I turned to him."So, is he cured?" I asked as he shook his head."No damn way! He only caused trouble but his dad doesn't know. Three criminal cases in five years. He pulled a great one out there." David mocked."I really wonder how you get deep information that his father doesn't know. I applaud you Dave." Abigail said as David smiled."My source is the best. These hands are magical." He winked as she laughed."So Ish, what do you plan on doing with the son? And even with the old man too. Any co
Ten -- IseoluwaI was dressed totally in black as usual when I bumped into fake cop. Wait, what? He is really a cop!"I can't believe you are a cop." I muttered with a smirk."I did tell. At least my uniform did justice to your disbelief." He boasted as I huffed."I am pretty sure you are a rookie. A new recruit." I retorted with a wink as he frowned."You look like a serial killer with that tongue of yours and the overall black. I am suspicious." He whispered the last part as I laughed. You were damn right."Uh-oh! I am shaking right now." I mocked with a roll of my eyes. I don't know why I feel so edgy around him."Or perhaps I am right? Are you really a criminal?" He asked as I nodded."Yeah. I kill humans." I deadpanned."Whatever. I am off. How about you find a job too?" He mocked as I glared at him."A c
Eleven -- EwawummiI grabbed my keys before putting on my jacket. Ini rushed in as he took in my outfit. "Boss, again?" He groaned as I walked out.He slammed the door and followed me with a lot of complaint. "Which case are we going to solve this time around?" He muttered as I stopped before turning slowly to him."We are about to find out. Team 5 has a lot of cases, we are going to help." I said before walking forward."What? We have more than enough. Boss, do you want us to get killed? This is getting absurd. If you really love over working, why don't you do it alone." He shouted as I flinched.Well, I know it wasn't his fault. He had every reason to fight. In the span of three to four days, I became something else. That guy's death affected me psychologically. I still kept holding unto his burnt jacket. He was my first indirect murder. I dragged an innocent citizen into this and I killed
