Four -- Ewawummi
I 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
Twelve -- Kunle"It's all done Sir." I reported to boss as he nodded. I was already running errands like carrying case files from one team to another. I never knew they were heavy and neither did I know that cases in the Police station were these much. People were quite funny. Imagine filing a case for a snack theft. It all didn't worth five hundred naira and the police were expected to report to the crime scene."Get ready. We need to check a crime scene. It's a murder case. Consider this as a great opportunity. No recruit get to witness a murder crime scene in their first two months of joining the force. It's not up to a week that you have resumed. I hope you carefully take note of everything." My boss explained slowly as I nodded with a smile."I promise boss. I would impress you a lot." I said before walking away. We would leave in ten minutes. I ran straight to the cafeteria to grab a burger. I hastily ate it a
