For days Shola hadn’t been able to eat- She was always crying. If not for Blessing assisting her business, it would have been in serious dark waters.
Blessing: “Aunty if it’s possible I’d advise you employ another person to help out until you have fully recovered!”
Shola: “Do you know anyone that’s good?”
Blessing: “Yes I have a friend who is better than I am!”
Shola smiled at her,
Shola: “Really? Okay since you have recommended her. Let her start tomorrow!”
Shola had pretended to be sick but Blessing got to find out that things weren’t going well for the love birds and that was the reason for Shola’s so called illness.
Shola couldn’t hold on to a particular reason for cheating on Henry. It was just a highly imaginative mind, that part of her unconscious mind that wanted to explore. That part that fueled her insatiable taste for sex,
Shola: “You’re stupid! Why would you cheat on a good man? Now you’ve ruined a very good thing in your life. You’re just unbelievable!” she said to herself.
Days after the breakup she deleted Xtranger from her contacts and blocked him,
“To hell with you,” she cried.
She had tried contacting Henry through calls and text messages but he wasn’t responding. He didn’t return her calls neither did he respond to her. It was killing her,
Shola: “I’m sorry baby!”she would say most times she tried her number.
She was becoming a shadow of herself. There was no one to share her pains with. Bola, her best friend was in custody for the death of her lover,
“Bola, I miss you!” Shola cried.
She didn’t know where exactly her friend was, all attempts to find out was abortive and she couldn’t meet First Lady who saw her as an enemy. Shola saw her in that light too. She had victimized the two people who Shola loved.
Dele sat in the small room looking well shaved and wearing a nice black shades- that made him appear like one of the tops stars in an American movie. He was waiting for them to bring Bola. After a few minutes of waiting, Bola was dragged in,
Dele: “Let her be,” he stands to meet her, “have your seat.” She had a black eye. She had suffered enough already.
Bola sat on the chair as he ordered for the cuffs to be taken out her hands,
Bola: “Thank you,” she managed to say.
She rubbed her wrist, it hurt her.
Dele: “I am Dele, the new officer in charge of your case! So I want you to be open to me and don’t lie to me,” she nodded, “I am here to help you!”
She nodded again, “You promise to tell me the truth and nothing but the truth.”
Dele nodded as he brought out a paper and pen,
Dele: “so tell me what your relationship is with the dead Chairman.”
Bola: “We were lovers. We have been dating for more than a year!””
Dele: “ Did anyone know about your affair?”
Bola shook her head,
Bola: “No one knew. He wanted me to marry me but I was yet to make up my mind so I pleaded with him for the relationship to be secret.”
Dele: “That means his wife didn’t know of it.”
Bola: “I’d love to believe that.”
Dele: “Before his death, the two of you weren’t meeting like you usually do. Did you have any quarrel whatsoever?”
Tears gathered in her eyes,
Bola: “We didn’t. We didn’t see because he wasn’t in town.”
Dele: “How did you know he wasn’t in town?”
Bola was getting a little irritated by the questions,
Bola: “he traveled. He told me he traveled.”
Dele: “so tell me what exactly happened on the day he died.”
Bola went on to give her narration and she was in tears. She told him everything even down to details of the conversation they had,
“Did you shut the door before leaving for the room?”
Tears trickled down her cheeks she could remember now she didn’t lock the door.
Bola: “No, I didn’t!”
Dele: “Was it deliberate or you forgot?”
She sat down with steaming tears burn her cheeks. She was angry at herself, Chairman, Dele and everyone. Her anger had everyone and everything as victims.
“I need you to answer me if you really want to prove your innocence. Aren’t you tired of being here?”
Bola: “It wasn’t deliberate,” she said sulking.
He sat absented as his mind evaluated the situation, abruptly he jumped up. The sudden jump frightened Bola,
Dele: “I’ll see you around soon!”
Dele went ahead with serious investigation- he had so many people questioned and even ordered for the arrest of the late Chairman’s aides and drivers. In between his investigation he always visited Bola and he discovered that she was just a victim of the situation she was totally innocent. He prevented them from torturing her. They became quite close. And he was working on her release but he needed to catch the culprit before releasing her. And finally he made First Lady come for questioning. When she came at first she was cold towards and after some moments of persuasion he started unfolding the truth. And he kept on nodding his head as he questioned her. He had gotten the murderer,
Dele: “Thank you, ma. Thanks for your co-operation.” She smiled at him,
First Lady: ”what about taking you out for lunch?” she offered with a smile.
Dele: “Some other time, ma’am!” he rejected politely
The First Lady imagined how sweet Dele could perform in bed. She fell in love with him at first sight. She felt like dragging him closer with his tie, kissing him right there at the moment
Henry sat down in the car as he loaded passengers. His mind dashed to Shola. He missed her badly. He fought the temptation of calling her,
Henry: “I can’t call her!”
His phone rang when he checked it was Shola, he hissed and placed it on silence. The Prof situation was the major issue that was bugging him. He had fixed the bumper of the car but was yet to come up with the fifty thousand naira. He had only ten thousand naira. What was he going to do? he thought.
Two well-dressed men approached him. They spoke impeccable English. They were dressed in suits, blue and black. They approached him,
The tall one said, “We are looking for someone to drive us around. Someone who knows the town very well. We would pay you twenty thousand from now, “he checked his watch it was 10 in the morning, “from now till 7 pm!”
What an offer? Henry thought. Henry got in the car and started driving them around. And in the car they started discussing of a business where one would invest fifteen thousand naira and get a hundred thousand in less than a week, they call the business name DDD (Drop a Dough get Dice)
The other guy said, “men, I just want to thank you for introducing me to DDD. Now I am in money.”
The tall guy laughed,
“What are friends for?”
And they went ahead to say that the cash was the reward was to come in dollars. Henry was happy that day had being a day God had prepared to bless him. Having listened to them keenly, he turned and said,
Henry: “I am interested! How do we get started?”
They nodded and smiled at him.
Dele led some men to First Lady’s shop,
Dele: “You’re under arrest for the murder of Chief John Yohanna! Anything you do or say would be used against you in the court of law!”
Dele nodded and she was handcuffed and wheeled away.
Questions: Would First Lady use her influence to free herself? Has Baba God finally picked Henry’s call, his breakthrough? Or would Henry be a victim of fraud to DDD?
