Felix ambulated about in the room. Restless. Bode sat with a bottle of vodka,
Felix shot Bode an astringent look,
Felix: “Re…what? Do you know we just murdered someone? A girl who was carrying my baby?”
Bode: “Leave me outta this man! I didn’t do a thing! I only helped you out. Besides none of us planned for her death!”
Felix broke down in tears,
Felix: “I’m a murderer, man! I just ended the life of a young girl who was in love with me! I’m mean man!”
Bode went closer handing him the bottle of vodka,
Bode: “Be a man, guy! You didn’t kill her. It was meant to happen!” Felix gobbled the drink, “take it easy,” Bode in a rush snatched the bottle from him.
Felix flung himself to the chair and was sobbing. Bode sat upright watching his friend sob bitterly.
Felix: “I want to go see my family!” he headed for the door.
Bode stood by his way,
Bode: “what are you doing? That’s dangerous, man. See the police and the girl’s family might be hunting for you already and if the girl’s family get to you first man! That would be death, you know?”
Felix: “Oh,God what have I gotten myself into? What was I looking for chasing after a small girl when I have a very beautiful wife and lovely kid? My family was close to perfect, man!”
He collected the bottle and gulped the contents down the throat; he was getting really tipsy.
Bode: “Take it easy,man!”
He drank more, the eyes were getting bleary and he started to gibberish. Bode held him by the shoulder and led him to the room,
Felix: “I will just go get my wifey Jane and smart boy Jake and we’d all fly to Trump’s country and start a new life” he illustrated a flying plane with his hands.
Bode kept answering him,
Bode: “Yes! Yes!!”
Felix: “No I won’t go with Jane. She’ve been poisoning my son against me!” he helped me to the bed as Felix started crying, “I killed Angela and she loved me so much!”
For a week, Jane had been unlawfully detained. Chief himself had gotten involved in the issue. He never joked with issues that affected his workers.
Iya Loja: “Let dat woman stay there until dat ‘er yeye husband come an talk true!” she had lamented.
If there was one thing their staff were assured of was protection. Chief and wife used their influence in protecting and fighting for them.
Mr Jones and his wife had Jake in their custody. He was told his mother traveled, he kept asking,
Jake: “Big mummy,” that was how he called Mrs. Jones, “when is mummy coming back?”
“Soon” was the answer they always gave him. As each day flew Jake started falling ill but they didn’t tell Jane, they never wanted her to get worried. Her hands were full already. Felix was nowhere to be found. Bode had gotten him to his cousin’s place at Gumel in Jigawa state that was a hideout for him. For it was no news that he was wanted. Chief Audu had employed the use of a very good investigator to help look into the issue. It was still believed that Angela was missing.
Amos kept on cursing Felix and family,
Amos: “E no go better for dat Felix and e wife wey kidnap my only daughter!” he cried after sniffing his snuff.
The investigator had gotten a lead in the story and Bode was apprehended a night before he was to leave for Benin Republic. But he refused saying a word about his friend’s where about even with the daily torture. And he refused telling the police that Jane knew nothing about the disappearance of the girl. He acted dumb even with the torture. Bode was that tough.
Israel and Comfort were coming out of Jabi Mall were they went to watch AY’s new movie A Trip to Jamiaca,
Comfort: “Babe, this movie is such a classic. It’s better than his first movie 30 days in Atlanta!” she scooped the ice cream in her mouth,
Isreal: “for me, I prefer the first!” he pressed the remote and the doors of the car tweaked open.
Comfort: “He is already becoming a house hold name!”
Israel: “already he is! And he is such a humble personality!”
Comfort: “Yea, you said so!” the engine started and they drove off. She scooped the ice cream and fed him with it, “ehen, babes, I came across this blog that writes very good touching stories…”
Israel: “blog?” she nodded,
Comfort: “They write interesting stories one would think one’s watching a movie o!”
Israel: “wow! That’s good! Hope say dem no go collect our job from us sha!”
There was a black Honda trailing them but none of them noticed. They were carried away in their lover’s nest.
Comfort:” Adelove.com. They are currently running a story titled the scourge!”
Israel: “I’d love to read when we get home then, “she scooped another spoon into his mouth,
Comfort: “You’d love the blog!”
The car increased its speed and ran into them making Israel lose control as they ran into an electricity pole off the tarred road.
Ladi took Jane to a semi lit room. There were two chairs and a table in the room. On the table were whip, pliers, cables and other dangerous tools. It was the torturing room. For the past one week Jane had been taken in there twice. She was on handcuffs. Ladi pushed her to the chair!
Ladi: “You must confess wetin you and your husband use di poor girl do?” Jane with a swollen cheek cried,
Jane: “I swear I don’t know anything about it! And for my husband the last time I’d set my eyes on him was the morning of the day I was taken into detention!
Ladi’s slap sent her to the ground,
Ladi: “Liar!” blood splashed from her mouth as Ladi was about to pounce on her properly.
Noises came from the counter. It seemed people were crying. She rushed out, it was Amos and wife and others. The station was crowded. Amos threw himself crying alongside his wife who passed out. Everyone held their noses. The stench was unbearable. Angela’s decomposed body had been found.
The DPO came out with his potbelly and said angrily,
DPO: “Make arrangements, Sergeant Bala and to transfer those criminals,” referring to Jane and Bode, “For a proper trial!”
Sergeant Bala saluted and left.
Is Israel and Comfort dead? Will Bode confess? Do you think Jane will be sentenced for a crime she is oblivious of?
