Oh my God, I hope Edna is alright oh, with that incident I hope she and the baby is alright, I just can’t imagine what she will be going through now, now that she’s in the hand of the devil herself how will she cope? God save her for me, funny thing when I was doing evil I didn’t remember God oh.
I escape the hospital as the police men continue chasing me with their hilux van blowing siren and disturbing the peace of Lagos, am not with any money I don’t know how I will cope, anytime I hear the siren I will hide in any store and allow the van to pass before coming out.
I was stranded in Lagos, with no money, no gun, no cellphone, I guess I will have to make some calls and request for backup because I can’t do this alone, I don’t know If phonebooth even still exist.
Lagos is a busy city, the most populous city in Africa, I was walking on the express road drawing my leg on the ground because I still feel the pain even though I was treated, I need sometime for the Injury to heal, but it seems I don’t have time for that, as I was walking I bump into one gentleman on suit, more like a banker and gently removed his phone from his pocket.
“Am so sorry” I said and continue walking, I took the guy phone out, I wanted to make call but I can’t because the phone is password protected, thank God I know how to reset android phone, I went to one small shop and relax there, I was tasty I needed water but there’s no money to buy.
It took five minutes for the phone to reset to default, I quickly do the welcome back settings before I was able to make call.
I touch the phone icon and dial her number.
“Hello” I heard from the other end.
“Hi Tina, let’s meet” I said.
“I know you will call Ozila” Tina said.
“please don’t hurt her, its me you want not her, let the innocent girl go” I said.
“Seriously? Are you fvcking kidding me? She’s all I want, she took you away from me and betrayed me, I have what I want and the time for negotiation has ended” she shouted.
“Tina, I will give you anything you want please just don’t her or our baby”
“From what I head they said the baby isn’t yours dear, they just deceived you to get you London, you have been protecting another mans kid”
“It doesn’t matter Tina, I caused everything that’s happening to her so I will take responsibility”
Edna said the baby isn’t mine so that I won’t feel attached to it but I believe the baby is mine from my calculation, I won’t believe it until the baby is born and we run DNA test, so as far as am concern now the baby is mine and am going to protect it like mine,.
“Tell me what to do to release her please Tina, if you ever love me you won’t hurt her” I started crying.
“You have forgotten about Annabel and your kid huh, you didn’t even ask about them, am curious to know why, is it that you don’t care about them or what?”
“Tina, now that you own my life in your hands what are you going to do, what have I done to deserve all this?”
“You haven’t seen anything yet, just wait and see what I will do, come to Edo state”
“Where in Edo state?”
“Where it all began” she concluded and hung up.
I know exactly where they are, I dialed Edna’s dad, and ask him to send some money that things has gone sideways, he was happy to hear from me he thought we were even dead, he said he’s in Lagos because he heard the news about what happened on the bridge, he told me to find my way to eko hotel that he is waiting for me there.
“What happened in London Ozila?” Edna’s dad ask as I sat on the comfortable chair in Eko hotel.
“Things got complicated, Tina is stronger than I imagine, we will have to call the police for help because I can’t do this alone” I said.
“We can’t, the government cannot find out, I have lost so many positions because of what happened in Portharcourt, now that am just starting to get my feet back I cannot let this pull me down again” he said.
“Even if its your daughter?”
“Yes, I will give you and support you with whatever you need but you must not involve me again, if you save her then take her to a place where she will be safe, don’t bring her to me, she has disgraced me enough”
“Good, I will need guns, alot of them and money”
“You will have them, there is a hilux waiting for you outside, you will find anything you need there, The driver John Is a soldier so you won’t have any trouble on the way”.
“Thank you” I said and stood up.
“Please try and save her, don’t let her die please” he said touching my shoulder.
“I will do my possible best, I promise” I said and walk away from the room.
“I know you will, I have contacted your friends you left in London, they will find you on your way to benin, am surprised only three of them survive, they must have hit you hard” he said.
“They used rocket, they took us by surprise, am glad they survive”
I walk down the hotel and as he said, I saw a white hilux van parked outside with one person inside.
He opened the door for me and I sat with him in the front.
“You must be the notorious Ozila” he said.
“Yeah and you are John”
“Yes, its a pleasure, so where are we going?”
“let’s go to Benin city” I said.
As we drive away from Lagos, we haven’t gone far when John told me that two power bikes are following us, I look back and saw them “dont worry, they are with us” I said to him.
“So what’s our plan when we get to Benin”
“I haven’t really think about that, I really don’t have a plan” I said
“You do they are not just going to hand her to us right?”
“Yeah, that’s why I think I will go in alone first”
“Tina want both of you, if you go in alone its game over for us” he said.
“I don’t have any other idea”
“Okay, let’s do it my way” he said.
“Okay, tell me your way”.
If you live by gun you must surely die by gun, it might take time but it must surely happen, I didn’t beg Tina to teach me how to be bad, I was just a kid trying to explore other things that’s how she took advantage of me, she now thinks I belong to her and with that she decided not to let me have peace, she took everything away from me but am not going to let go, I must fight on till my last breath, I know am not going to survive this but I must do it anyway, after all nobody will miss me.
Four hours later we arrive benin city, we didn’t actually go inside town we just divert to the road leading to Afuze direct, where it all began.
We arrive Afuze in the night, I like it like that, we went to one hotel in hospital road to rest, I hugged taiye and kehinde, am really glad they are alright though taiye lost one eye, we drinks and have some fun before the final battle, we rest for 24 hours and then around 8 in the evening the next day, , I arrange my bag and decided to pay Tina a visit in her black gate, I was alone with some weapons on my backpack, I came out from the hospital road and then cross the main road, I walk to the street where Tina house is located, I saw some girls guarding the black gate. the moment I got to the gate I knock.
The moment they saw me they opened the gate and surround me with their heavy guns, they pushed me inside the gate and lock, they collect my bag and then handcuff my hand, two girls walk me to the room while the others remain outside guarding the front gate, they opened the front door and there in the sitting room I saw Tina discussing with the D.P.O, what’s the divisional police officer doing in Tinas house by this time.
“And the prodigal son returns” Tina said as she saw me, she walk the officer outside and then return back facing me with her red eye like a dragon.
Let me see your comments before I continue
