Forty One -- Kunle
After series of call, she picked up. "Wow, my son who never wants to hear my voice finally calls. How amazing." She mocked as I clenched my fist.
"Where are you?" I replied as she laughed.
"Awwwn, my son. Are you concerned about your mother now? It's okay. I can't be caught." She said as I inhaled sharply. She was getting me angry but I needed to keep cool if I wanted to get any useful information.
"Where are you right now? I will come to you." I said as she sighed.
"With the officers? Hey, I am not that foolish." She replied as I lost it.
"Which son would want his mother arrested? Can you just tell me where you are and let me get you? You are the next, don't you know that?" I shouted as there was silence at the other end.
"Are you still there?" I said slowly.
"You are my son after all. I am at your hotel. I
Forty Two -- Iseoluwa"Do you mean it?" Dave questioned as I clenched my fist."I knew we weren't compatible. It wasn't because of my cold nature but the fact that he was my greatest enemy son." I replied as I was digging deep into his family affairs online."What do we do? Should we park? You said he knows about us. What if he reports us? Things have gone out of hands! It's gonna be bad if Ewa finds out too." Eric muttered pacing around."Let's plan to leave. That's our priority. Ewa finding out is nothing compared to your safety." I replied as Abigail sighed."Ise, it is obvious that you like her. Come on, you do love her. Don't fight it." She whispered as I laughed in despair."What? Love? Hey, I planned to use her from the very start. That's what I'm still doing. It's totally heartless to call it love." I answered her. Eric passed a look to David as they left us alone.
Forty Three -- Iseoluwa"Why did you have to get the same flavour as mine?" She mocked with a sly smile as she carefully sucked in her ice cream."Well, I think I've been whipped." I winked before pulling her into the vehicle. My phone rang as I picked it."Eric? What's up?" I asked as he sounded panicked. Is something wrong? "Speak up!""They caught hold of Dave. That witch and her gang. He is in trouble. What should we do?" He cried out as I suddenly pressed the brake making us jolt forward."Damn! Hold on, I'm coming." I hung up. "I need to get somewhere. I'll get a cab for you." I said as I got down. She did the same and walked over to me."What's wrong? Is it very important?" She asked purely worried as I tried to keep cool."Ewa, you will go home and relax. Okay? Everything's fine." I replied as she shook her head in tears."Why are you
Forty Four -- EwawummiSomething was really wrong. But, what? I clenched unto his Identity Card I picked from the floor as I paced around. Why did it feel like that was the last time I would see him. Oh God, please keep him save.My phone suddenly rang and I ran to it hoping it was Ise. "Ini? Hello." I replied disappointed."Boss, are you okay? You don't sound well?" He replied as I sighed."I am really not okay, Ini. I am so worried right now. I don't know what to do." I said honestly."Why? The case is giving you problem? Or perhaps? Ise?" There was humor laced with his last word. Ini was like family to me so I told him a lot of things."The latter. Something is wrong somewhere and I don't seem to understand. It's like I might not get to see him again. I feel so uneasy." I explained as he hummed in response."If he isn't telling you, you shouldn't dig too deep and
Forty Five -- Iseoluwa"You didn't have to come. Why would you risk your life?" Dave scolded me as he kept breathing heavily."Do you think I would leave you here? I saw the memory card." I said as he sighed in relief. "How did you get it? I never knew it existed." I said as he turned with a smile. His lips was bleeding already."When we arrived from Canada, I dialed your doctor's number. He had the recording for a long time. I caught him with it and he couldn't deny. He was just so afraid. I called him then and promised to do a clean job without his name being mentioned. After much persuasion, he sent it to me this morning. I planned to tell you when I arrived but, I got kidnapped." He said as I wished I was free to hug and thank him."Thank you Dave, I'm really glad you gave me the opportunity to hear mom's voice and dad's too. I will make sure you get out of here safe." I said as he laughed."We
Forty Six -- Ewawummi"A crazy jerk in love with a sassy officer." He said as my heart leaped for joy. He was in love with me. But, what's wrong with me? I was supposed to be mad at him but here am I in his arms."Put me down. I can walk." I said as he opened the window. I peeped outside. The fire fighters were already down with their water tank."Hold me tight, we are going to jump." He said as I gasped. What?"We are on the first floor." I complained as he adjusted me."Close your eyes." He said as he passed through the already burning window. I could hear screams from people but I couldn't risk opening my eyes. We ended up hitting the floor with me falling upon him. I opened my eyes slowly and gasped on seeing Ise's condition. His head was bleeding badly. Why didn't I notice that it was this worse. He was already feeling dizzy."Are you okay?" His voice came out barely as a whisp
