Forty Four -- Ewawummi
Something 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.

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.
