….”Let’s all please close our eyes as we give a quiet moment in respect to the spirit of our Husband, Brother, Friend and Colleague” Rev. Fr. Ferdinand said dressed in white robe, holding a long chaplet and placing it on his head. He stood close to he head of Chief Mark. Around him were people in black, Chief Marks wife and daughter, extended families and Friends.. They were all moaning in tears, others shaking their head painfully in agony. The burial ground was tightly secured by police men.
Immediately the Rev. Fr finished his speech, Mrs. Mark knelt down and laid her head on the well decorated grave of her husband, her daughter held her shoulders in silent tears.
”I know how it feels to loose such a wonderful person, but remember, God gives and God takes. All Power is in his hands, the power of life and death. No man can question his decision” Rev. Ferdinard continued with his speech
”The Bible says, In all things gives thanks to God. Let’s close our eyes” Rev. Ferdinand said and few people closed their eyes while others kept their eyes open as tears couldn’t allow them to join in the prayer.
”Almighty Father…” Rev. Ferdinand began the prayer
”Mere human we are, Supernatural you are. You alone gives and takes. We thank you for you have called your Son back to……”Rev. Ferdinand couldn’t finish his prayer as a heavy gun shot was heard. Everybody frightfully began to run away, the chiefs around the area was led by their thugs into their cars and they speedily drove off.. The Rev. Fr was shocked and stood still praying his chaplet. The Police began to search everywhere to trace where the gun shot came from.
More tears and shout of agony overtook the area as Mrs. Mark was noticed dead laying on her husband’s grave. The bullet screwed directly through her mid-head. Kamsy, her daughter shook her
”Mom! Mom!” She screamd in tears still shaking her. Looking at the grave of her father she screamed ”Dad!! Dad!!”.
The Rev. Fr and the few people left there tried consoling and dragging her up to leave the arena before another gun shot will be heard. She insisted and kept crying.. They dragged her up but she slipped off her hand and fell on her Mother’s body with tears. She couldn’t bear the loss. With much struggle and pleading, they dragged her into the car and they drove off with the police entourage blowing their sirene..
”This is the news flash at 10:15am” Said the News caster on the television as Chief Williams watched the television relaxing on his couch
”There was a gun shot at the funeral of Chief Mark which caused the death of Mrs. Mark the wife. The gun shot made everyone to run away from the arena. Up till now, the police haven’t discovered where or who shot the bullet”The News Caster concluded and Chief Williams smiled broadly. He smiled for a while and began to laugh aloud
”He should come and contest with me. Idiot!” He said standing up and picking up the glass of wine on the table before him
”I warned him, but he never listened. A stubborn fly follows the dead into the grave” He said and laughed as he continued sipping the glass of wine. Just then, Professor Michael barged in in excitement
”Place on the television!!” He exclaimed looking at Chief Williams in smiles
”Hahahah.. I have already heard it” Chief Williams said
”His family have been crushed” Chief Williams added
”That serves him right” Prof. Michael said and laughed
”Please come and have a seat” Chief Williams offered him a seat
”We really have to celebrate this” Prof. Michael supported his sitting offer
”One Bullet!!!” Chief Williams called out to one of his thugs
”Get me a wine immediately” He ordered without waiting for his thug to reply his call.
”Hahahah..” He laughed again and sat down
”I told you he won’t fail” Prof. Michael said
”You said it.. You really said it” Chief Williams said and laughed
”I actually never believed you” He added
”This boy is a professional in this business. He never fails” Prof. Michael said
”I think he will do more business for me” Chief Williams said
”He’s all yours, but always remember my share as the contractor” Prof. Michael said
”Of course. I really owe you alot” Chief Williams said
”You are looking at the next President of this country” He added and both of them began to laugh aloud.. Few Seconds later, One Bullet dropped the wined and left immediately
”Let’s toast to Victory” Prof. Michael said and they lifted up their glass cups but was interrupted by the loud banging of the door
”Toasting of cups is meant for victors” The dangerous looking young man dressing in all black attire said standing at the door.
The wine cup of Chief Williams fell off and broke due to the door bang.
”How dare you bang my door like that! Are you mad??!!” Chief Williams yelled at him in anger but Prof. Michael tried calming him down….

**STILL IN CHIEF WILLIAMS HOUSE**
..”Please calm down” Prof. Michael said to Chief Williams as Spartacus stood still at the door saying nothing
”Don’t tell me to calm down! That I hired him doesn’t give him the audacity to break my door. Aren’t there other better Assassins?” Chief Williams asked rhetorically still in anger but Prof. Michael still pleaded with body movement not because Chief Williams can do anything but because of what Spartacus can do
”Nonsense!” Chief Williams exclaimed and sat down on the couch still a bit angry
”Bravo, Mr. Williams” Said Spartacus with a deep low bass voice as he gave few steps away from the door
”Interesting but not Impressive Mr” Spartacus said walking more closer
”What’s this idiot talking about” Chief Williams said looking at Spartacus and back at Prof. Michael
”Just calm down” Prof. Michael said to Chief Williams aloud
”That you hired me doesn’t give me the audacity to bang your door Sir, but that you hired me still doesn’t hold me back from putting a bullet through your skull if you insult me again” Spartacus said with a red eye pointing his Pistol at Chief Williams head and immediately Prof. Williams went on his kneel pleading with Spartacus
”How dare you point that towards my face?” Chief Williams still bragged in Pride but Spartacus said nothing
”Spark!! One Bullet!!” Chief Williams yelled a loud call to his thugs but no one answered
”If you don’t put that gun down, I will call my boys to bundle you out of here” Chief Williams still said looking directly at the eyes of Spartacus
”Chief, why not keep quiet and beg him” Prof. Michael said still on his kneels
”One Bullet.. Spar….” Chief Williams called severally but was interrupted by Spartacus
”Don’t waste your strenght old man, they won’t answer you” Spartacus said
”What?!” Chief Williams exclaimed in surprise
”They tried stopping me on my way in here and I put them to sleep, not to worry, they will wake up once I leave” Spartacus said and Chief Williams began to shiver in silence
”Now, seat down Sir” Spartacus said respectfully to Prof. Michael and he sat down then he placed back his gun and began to rub his his hands. Chief Williams kept on starring at Spartacus and Prof. Michael in shock but he tried enough and calmed down
”I am a busy person, please hurry up, I need to leave” Spartacus said not looking at any of them. Understanding his words, Chief Williams stood up with his walking stick and hurried inside.
Few seconds later, he came out with a brief case
”This is your pay as promised” Chief Williams said with a shaky hands
”You don’t have to fear old man” Spartacus said to Chief Williams gazing at him with his masky face. He took the brief case and walked towards the door
”Thank you for paying your tithe” Spartacus said and left. Immediately he left, One Bullet and Spark rushed in with their guns and eyes opened wide like people searching for something
”Where is he?” One Bullet asked holding his gun with two hands
”Chief, hope you are not hurt?” Spark asked Chief Williams who was looking at them with an agry disappointing eye
”Lay low Boss, he is hiding” Spark said
”I wi…” One bullet tried to say
”Shut up!!! You good for nothing idiots!” Chief Williams yelled at them
”You two couldn’t stop one man” He added
”Why then do I pay you?” Chief Williams asked
”Answer me!” He yelled at them again and they looked at him startled
”You better get out of my sight before I unleash my anger on you two” Chief Williams said
”Sorry Boss” They said and left
”Sorry for yourself.. Buffons!” Chief Williams said and went back to the couch
”That man could have killed you, you know” Prof. Michael said to Chief Williams not looking at him
”What sort of a devil is he?!” Chief Williams asked Prof. Michael still wondering
”You better mind the way you talk to him. He is respectful but he has do’s and don’ts” Prof. Michael said and sipped from his glass of wine as Chief Williams starred at him..
**THE NEXT MORNING**
”Darling, hurry Up let’s go” Chief Williams voice was heard aloud from the staircase as his wife, Mrs Williams was still having her Manicure and Pedicure in her room
”I’ll be right there in minutes honey” She relied
”We are already late!” Chief Williams said again with a sober face looking tired of waiting. In Few Seconds, Mrs. Williams came out and walked down the staircase
”You are always in a hurry, the future First lady is supposed to dress well” She said and walk past Chief Williams who was just looking at her
”Let’s go now.. You are now standing there” Mrs. Williams said to Chief Williams and he slowly walked down the staircase
”Natasha! Natasha!” Mrs. Williams called out on the house keeper
”Madam” She replied
”Take care of the house” Mrs. Williams said and they left..

*AT THE FEDERAL CONFERENCE HALL, ABUJA*
Chiefs, Professors, men and women of great and honourable Calibre was seen sitted round a long table, at the head of the table was President Donatus, two heavy bodied men was standing behind him. The table was decorated with wine and drinks. They were all mumbling with each other as if they were hiding something from a third person.
”Good Morning Everybody” President Donatus said hitting his hands a bit on the table and everywhere was quiet
”As we all know, we have lost a great personnel from this table” President Donatus said pointing at the empty sit where Chief Mark normally sits
”Quite alright, we have mourned him, we have cried enough and have consoled the daughter who is the remaining of his family” President Donatus said and kept quiet for a moment. He took a bottled water, one of his body guards opened it for him and he drank a bit from it
”We will have to replace his position as we all know he was the leading participant in the Presidential Members selection in this house” President Donatus continued and a little noise aroused in the house
”Keep Quiet!” President Donatus shouted and everywhere became quiet again
”Chief Muhammed Ali had a follow up score after Chief Mark, so I guess he will be the…” President Donatus tried saying but Chief Williams interrupted
”That is a lie!” He yelled as he entered immediately despising the fact that he came late
”That can never happen as long as I’m here!” Chief Williams added and the house was divided into two. One part supporting Chief Williams and the other fighting against Chief Williams
”Order!” A Police man shouted and they became a bit quiet again.
”Chief Williams” President Donatus called
”Your Excellency” Chief Williams answered
”Despite the fact that you came late, you didn’t keep calm and sit down but you caused an unwanted scene her” President Donatus queried Chief Williams
”I’m sorry your Excellency” He apologised
”Good, now sit down” President Donatus said and he sat down along side his wife
”Now everyone listen” President Donatus began
”Chief Muhammed Ali has a follow up count with Chief Mark and so that awards him the right to step up to that position” President Donatus said and Chief Muhammed Ali stood up happily and saluted everybody trying to walk up to the seat
”With all due respect Your Excellency” Chief Williams said standing up
”My Follow up count is higher than that of Chief Muhammed Ali” Chief Williams said
”That’s a big lie” Chief Muhhamed Ali said ointing at the face of Chief Williams
”How dare you point that filthy finger at me” Chief Williams said angrily to Chief Muhammed
”And what will you do?” Chief Muhammed asked
”Quiet!!” President Donatus oredered but Chief Williams still stood while others sat down
”Chief Williams” President called him
”Your Excellency” He answered
”Chief Muhammed Ali placed a better Manifestoe, and made a more better candidate elect. He tops you with 2 elects” President Donatus said
”That is not true your Excellency. There was a Favouritism from the Judges table. Not to forget, his Chief Adviser and his Wife are among the Judging table” Chief Williams defended his speech
”And so what??!!” Chief Muhammed and his supporters barked at Chief Williams
”You Cheated!” Chief Williams barked back
”If so, why don’t you put your wife on the Judgung seat too” Mrs. Ali said to Chief Williams
”I will shut that your mouth if you dare talk to me in such manner again” Mrs. Williams said to Mrs. Ali
”And what will you and your stupid husband do if she does?” Chief Ali asked
”Don’t dare me Chief Ali” Chief Williams said and the house was divided again
”Quiet! I say Quiet!!” President Donatus tried calming them down, even the Poilice men tried but the riot was so much. President Donatus, not knowing what to do, picked up his files and left through th back door with his entourage..
”You must be stupid Williams!! What do you have?” Chief Ali bragged
”The Antelope the picks up the Lion for a Chase should be ready to be devoured” Chief Williams said back at him
”I am the Lion Williams! You can’t do anything to me.. Accept defeat and step down” Chief Ali yelled at Chief Williams who starred at him for some minutes
”We shall see who is the Lion and Who is the Antelope” Chief Williams said
”Honey, let’s go” Chief Williams said and left with his wife
”Useless old man.. Don’t go an rest. Come and take the seat of honour” Mrs. Ali said aloud and hissed
”I’m waiting for you Williams” Chief Ali said and sat down. Those supporting Chief Williams followed him and left while those supporting Chief Ali sat back with him and encouraged him, giving him more strenght…
Quietly, Chief Williams walked to his Car, Spark immediately opened it up and they drove out.

…..”What an insult!” Exclaimed Mrs. Williams as she angrily walked out of the Car and barged into her house. Chief Williams, still quiet walked passed her and sat down on the couch
”Why are you sitting down there saying nothing eeh!! After the hell of insults you and I received today.” Mrs. Williams yelled at her husband. On hearing the noise, Natasha rushed out
”Madam, is there any problem?” She politely and caringly asked
”Get out of my sight you slot!” Mrs. Williams barked at her and she bent down a bit and left but often looking back
”Chief, do something!” Mrs. Williams said to her husband
”You told me you are the one to be chosen but see what just happened back there.. Nonsense. Sit there and keep on drinking while others take over your post. Weakling!” She concluded and walked up the stair case in anger
”Natasha!!” She called as she walked up
”Get me a glass of red wine” She ordered not allowing Natasha to reply. Chief Williams was left alone in the parlour as he swinged his walking stick up and down, severally hitting it on the floor.
”Chief Ali!! Chief Ali!!” He called with a low voice on a smiling face
”You have touched the tiger by the tail” He concluded and picked up his phone to make a call.
”Don’t bother calling, I’m already here” The Voice of Spartacus startled Chief Williams
”What the hell…” Chief Williams exclaimed in shock
”You Devil.. How did you know I am about calling you” Chief Williams asked
”A man whose house is on fire only seek ways to quench it and not play cards” Spartacus spoke in parables
”And what does that mean?” Chief Williams asked Spartacus
”I don’t have much time to waste here Chief” Spartacus said folding his hands in front
”Now this time, what did you do to my boys?” Chief Williams asked
”Nothing at all.. No one saw me come in here” Spartacus said and Chief was more shocked
”Even my gate man?” He asked
”I see you wanted me here for an interview.. Good day Chief” Spartacus said and tried leaving
”No.. No.. No.. Please hold on” Chief said drawing back the attention of Spartacus
”Someone is interferring in my game. He wants to throw the Kings card. He wants to wine and dine in the den of Lions” Chief Williams said
”I need you to delete him” Chief Williams continued looking directly at the face of Spartacus
”1 Million dollars” Spartacus said standing still
”What?? I Million what?!” Chief Williams exclaimed at the payment Spartacus said
”Please, it’s too much, I will give you 500,000 dollars” Chief Williams contemplated with the payment
”Then go and do it yourself” Spartacus said and left
”Go to hell you buffon! Gosh, 1 Million dollars, for what?” Chief Williams asked himself and sat back on the couch. Immediately, he called Prof. Michael..
”Ahmed.. Ahmed..” Cynthia’s voice called out as she walked towards the gate
”Yes Madam” Ahmed answered and ran out to meet her
”Please, can you help me get something outside, I can’t walk out in this sun” She said
”Na em you dey beg Madam, I go do am madam” Ahmed said and Cynthia smiled
”Here..” She said handing over some money to him
”A bottle of water, the one’s inside are finished.. Please hurry” She said
”Yes Madam” Ahmed said bowing down and rushed out.
Few seconds after Ahmed left, Bella, Cynthia’s friend walked in
”Hey Babe.. How far nah” Bella shouted with a smiling face as she ran to hug Cynthia..
”Girl, I dey ooh” Cynthia replied
”You are really enjoying” Bella said looking around
”All these things just for you alone to enjoy” Bella added
”Stop that jhoor.. It’s God my dear” Cynthia said
”What about your parents?” Bella asked
”They travelled and won’t be coming back soon” Cynthia said and Bella smiled broadly
”This house won’t contain me ooh” Bella said happily and ran in. Cynthia followed her, laughing at her funny behaviour and movement..
”Professor, I don’t think you are understanding what I am saying” Chief Williams who sat opposite Prof. Michael said as Prof. Michael starred at him
”I said I need another Assassin” Chief Williams said
”Why?” Prof. Michael asked
”He charges a lot.. Not that I can’t afford it but he is too greedy. 1 Million dollars for just one person” Chief Williams said and hissed
”You better pay that money and save yourself the stress. Mind you, Chief Ali might also be planning against your life, so he is doing two jobs. These weaklings you call thugs can’t protect you” Prof. Michael said and Chief Williams saw sense in what he was saying and they both starred at each other..
”You better start calling him, the earlier the better” Prof. Michael said
”Only Fools risks their lives quest of protecting their money” The Voice of Spartacus sounded again from the door and Chief Williams dropped the phone he already placed on his ears. Prof. Michael smiled at him..

….”Better tell me you brought me a wizard as an assassin” Chief Williams said looking at Prof. Michael who was still smiling
”I will pay you the money but you’ll also have to protect me from his own attacks” Chief Williams bargained with Spartacus
”Good deal” Spartacus said and folded his arms
”I will make out an accomodation fro you here, you will be following me about till the job is done” Chief Williams added
”I ain’t no cheap thug as you think old man. I don’t live in houses neither do I follow people about. All you need is Protection, I will give it to you” Spartacus said with a very slow deep voice
”How then can you protect me if you are not close to me” Chief Williams asked
”Trust him Chief, I don’t like the way you doubt the prowess of this young man” Prof. Michael said and Chief Williams looked at him but before he could turn to look at Spartacus, he has already left. Turning again to look at Prof. Michael, he saw Prof. Michael already sipping from the wine cup looking relaxed
”I don’t know why you feel so relaxed” Chief Williams said to Prof. Michael
”Why shouldn’t I.. You better do too” Prof. Michael said and stood up
”I need to be on my way now, I have some things to pile up at home” Prof. Michael added and left smiling at Chief Williams.
”I pray it works” Chief Williams said and exhaled
”Appearing and Disappearing all the time” He added and stood up to walk into his bed room..
*AT THE PRESIDENT’S RESIDENCE**
President Donatius was seen walking to and fro his sitting room with a wine cup dressed in an all white robe. Soon enough, he sat down and sipped from the cup.
”I have only gone through one tenure and wants to get down?” He asked himself
”I couldn’t even beat the 5th in follow up scores” He said to himself again
”I don’t want to leave her now.. I will have a second tenure” He added in his mind
”I am the leader. I am the President.. I can do anything I wish to secure my second tenure” He added
”I will dismiss all contests and base my fact on the crisis that transpired between Chief Ali and Chief Williams..” He continued
”I must have a second tenure!” He concluded in his heart and smiled a bit looking at the television..
**THE DISCO HALL**
Loud music was heard as the DJ covered everywhere with wonderful songs. Boys and Girls of age were seen at different corners talkin, chatting and laughing. Others were inside dancing. Bella and Cynthia sat on one of the tables sited behind the pool.
”I kinda love this place” Cynthia said
”I told you, you’ll like it” Bella replied with smiles
”But wait ooh, babe, how did you come about knowing this place?” Cynthia asked
”Ahhahh.. Campus babes no go relax mind” Bella replied with a question
”So this is what you do in school, eeh. Instead of you to study you will be peeping around night clubs” Cynthia joking said and they laughed
”Girl, look behind you” Bella said to Cynthia strategically pointing at a guy who has been starring at them since they came
”Ignore him dear..” Cynthia said and the boy stood up and walked up towards them
”He is coming this way” Bella lowly said
”Behave as if you haven’t seen him” Cynthia said and they concentrated on their food
”Hey girls, I can see you are having fun” The boy said holding a bottle of beer in his hand
”Yea.. As you can see” They both said raising up their heads
”Errhhmm.. Hope you don’t mind me joining you” He requested
”You can” Bella said already admiring the boy
”So, what are your names?” He asked
”Bella” Bella said but Cynthia kept quiet
”Yours dear” The boy said looking at Cynthia waiting for a reply
”I don’t talk to strangers” Cynthia replied and dropped her spoon
”Alright.. Sorry dear. But why not you allow me show you I’m not a stranger. Let me make your night glow” The boy said but Cynthia starred at him
”Thank you Very Much, but I’m not interested” Cynthia said
”Cynthia..” Bella called out
”What?” Cynthia asked
”Sorry Bros, she is just shy” Bella said to the boy but he stood up and left
”You see, you have chased him away” Bella said
”And so..;” Cynthia asked
”Babe, you need to have fun. Enjoy yourself now your parents are away” Bella said to Cynthia who mopped at her
”Stop this your attittude and enjoy” Bella said and just then a guy walked by and Bella followed him
”Are you leaving me here?” Cynthia asked
”Enjoy yourself dear. Don’t bother to wait for me. You can go home” Bella said as she walked up the small stairs with the guy
”Gosh!! What nonsense” Cynthia said confused on what to do or what to say. She confusingly picked up her car keys and left the arena..

….”Jesus!” Chief Williams shouted in shock as he rushed out and saw Spark shot in the leg rolling on the floor
”Cheiii!!! Na wetin be dis” One bullet exclaimed
”My God, Spark what happened?” Mrs. Williams asked holding her chest
”Oga Spark wan die oooh” Musa the gateman shouted with his hands on his head peeping from the gate
”Speak Spark, what happened to you” Chief Williams said hitting his walking stick on the floor
”Where is Natasha?” Mrs. Williams asked
”In the car” Spark said in pains pointing at the car and one bullet rushed to the car and felt the pulse of Natasha
”Oga, her pulse is weak” One bullet said from the car
”My God, honey do something” Mrs. Williams cried
”Tell me what happened Spark” Chief Williams kept asking
”This is not the time for this honey, let’s rush them to the hospital first” Mrs. Williams said
”Yes, Oga.. Abeg” One bullet added carrying spark immediately and placing him in the car. He ignited the engine of the car and reversed with a great speed
”Open the gate!!” Mrs. Williams shouted at Musa who quickly opened the gate and ran out of the way due to the spped of One bullet
”Let’s follow them honey, please God, let Natasha not die” Mrs. Williams said looking troubled but Chief Williams kept standing staring at the sky
”What are you still doing there now.. Let’s go” Mrs. Williams said and entered the car. The driver started the engine and they followed One Bullet to the hospital..
**CHIEF ALI’S RESIDENCE**
”How did it go?” Chief Ali asked backing his thugs
”It went well Boss, the message has been delivered” Black eye said
”Good.. This is just a warning Williams” Chief Ali said and faced his thugs
”Next, you shall kill his wife as a second warning.” Chief Williams said and they nodded their head. Chief Ali dipped his hands into his agbada and brought out 5 wraps of money and threw it at them
”For a job well done” Chief Ali said and they smiled
”Thank you Sir.. You too much. You must be the President” They all said hailing him which made him smile
”You can go now” Chief Ali said and they all left
”Chief Williams, this is just the beginning” Chief Ali said and walked up the staircase majestically.
**AT THE HOSPITAL**
”Doctor, how is she?” Mrs. Williams asked the doctor
”Don’t worry madam, she will be fine” The doctor said
”Luckily for her, it didn’t penetrate far into her bones” The doctor added and Mrs. Williams calmed down a little
”Thank God” She said
”Errhm.. Doctor, what about the young man brought in here with her
”Ooh.. He is doing much better now” The doctor said
”Can we see him” Chief Williams asked
”Yes, please follow me” The Doctor said and led the way
”How do you feel now” Chief Williams asked Spark
”Better Boss” Spark said
”How come you went out and ushed in with a shot leg when I gave you both all the ammunitions you need for protection” Chief Williams asked
”Sorry Boss, I didn’t go out with any Sir” Spark said adjusting his legs a little
”You see how foolish you are, why didn’t you” Chief Williams asked again
”Madam told me not to Sir” Spark said
”What?! Who told you” Chief Williams asked
”Madam” Spark replied
”How dare she.. Now see what she has caused!” Chief Williams said a bit angrily
”But even if I went with a gun, I was outnumbered Boss” Spark added
”Now, tell me how it happened” Chief Williams said and Spark adjusted his sitting posture trying not to hurt his bandaged leg. One bullet stood aside also listening..
”I was driving Natasha to the supermarket…” Spark began. Few minutes later, he concluded his story about the incident
”Boss, these people needs to be dealt with!” One bullet said
”How dare they touch my man. Boss, give me the order to deal with them” One bullet said
”Calm down” Chief Williams said and hit his walking stick on the floor
”Chief Ali… Chief Ali…” He called out and shook his head
”You just drew the battle line” He concluded and left.
”Guy mellow down, you go dey fine eeh” One bullet said to Spark and followed Chied Williams.
”Open the car” Chief Williams ordered and One bullet dragged the door open
”Take my wife home with the other car” Chief Williams said to the driver
”Yes Sir” He said and Chief Williams drove out.
”Were are we going to Sir” One Bullet asked
”Just keep driving” Chief Williams said. Driving few miles away, Chief Williams stopped in fron of Chief Ali’s entourage and he alighted from the car. Chief Ali also came dow escorted by his thugs fully armed
”Ali!! Ali!!” Chief Williams exclaimed in anger
”I guess you must have received my message” Chief Ali said smiling
”You have just stirred the pot of thunder that will strike you” Chief Williams said pointing his walking stick at Chief Ali
”That is a threat told to childrem my friend” Chief Ali said starring at Chief Williams…

….”Don’t forget someone that chose to dance surugede should know that surugede is the dance of the spirits” Chief Ali said
”And who is the gods? I am the gods. The darkness that that overpowers light” Chief Williams bragged
”Hahahahah” Chief Ali laughed
”And do you know that I can just kill you here and now” Chief Ali said to Chief Williams who wasn’t shocked at all. One bullet rushed down the car immediately with his gun pointing at Chief Ali. On seeing that, Chief Ali’s thugs corked their guns ready to fire.
”Hold down you fire” Chief Williams said to One Bullet
”You are beating the drums of war, and bet me, I have started to dance to the tune” Chief Ali said
”Go and tell that to the gods” Chief Ali said
”Ali!!.. Ali..!!” Chief Williams called again and walked into his car
”Let’s go” He said to One bullet who entered the car immedaitely and drove out by the side
”Let him go today.. Tomorrow is another day” Chief Ali said
”Move me out of this place” He added and entered the car.
”Prof. Mich! This man is getting on my nerves” Chief Williams said walking restlessly in Prof. Michael’s house
”Do you know he nearly killed me today” Chief Williams said and Prof. Mich spat out the wine in his mouth
”What??!!” He exclaimed and stood up
”Yes..” Chief Williams said
”This has gotten too far” Prof. Michael said
”I don’t know why Spartacus is wasting time” Chief Williams said
”Isn’t he capable to do this” Chief Williams asked
”Don’t say that Chief” Prof. Michael said
”Let me call him” Prof. Michael added and picked up his phone
”Hello..” Prof. Michael said on the phone and kept quiet for some seconds. He hung up the call afterwards
”What did he say?” Chief Williams asked
”We should meet him at No. 9 Roger lane now” Prof. Michael said
”What are we still waiting for, let’s go” Chief Williams said and the left immediately
**NO. 9 ROGER LANE**
”This is an uncompleted building” Chief Williams said
”Who will be living here?” Chief Williams asked
”Let’s wait since he told us to wait” Prof. Michael said
”But this is a lonely road. I can’t stay here much longer, it’s dangerous. Look at all the bushes around” Chief Williams added and kept quiet..
**10 MINUTES LATER**
”Now Prof. I have had it enough. Take me out of here” Chief Williams said
”Let’s wait a bit longer” Prof. Michael said
”I have been waiting for the past 10 Minutes, and you want me to wait longer” Chief Williams asked in anger
”I’m out of here” Chief Williams said
”I can see you don’t want to take me home” Chief Williams added and alighted from the car bringing out his phone to call One bullet to come and pick him up.
”Why are men so impatient?” The voice of Spartacus sounded from above the car and just then Prof. Michael came out from the car too
”What the…!” Chief Williams exclaimed in shock
”What are you doing up there?” He asked
”Well, I have been here for the past 8 Minutes waiting for you” Spartacus said
”Waiting for Us? How?” Prof. Michael asked
”Nevermind.. But, next time don’t sit one place waiting for a miracle to happen, come out and watch it happen” Spartacus said and jumped down from the car
”Who the hell did you say you are” Chief Williams asked
”I am Spartacus Sir” Spartacus replied
”You are a devil” Chief Williams said
”Well, you can call me whatever Sir” Spartacus added and kept quiet
”Anyways, what are you still waiting for to carry out your assignment” Chief Williams asked
”You Sir” Spartacus replied
”Me?? How” Chief Williams asked
”Pay the cash and I do the job” Spartacus said
”I thought I will pay after the job” Chief Williams said
”What if you fail?” Chief Williams asked
”Failure is for those that doesn’t plan. Are you ready to pay or not?” Spartacus asked
”Give him what he wants Chief, let’s leave this place” Prof. Michael said
”Alright, I will pay you. Just go ahead with the job, please” Chief Williams pleaded
”Done” Spartacus said and rubbed his hands
”You can go now” Spartacus added
”And while going don’t follow your left, follow your right” Spartacus added
”Why?” Chief Williams and Prof. Williams asked same time but Spartacus didn’t reply, he turned around and began to walk away.
Chief Williams and Prof. Michael entered the car immediately and drove off.
”Why did he say that?” Chief Williams asked
”But we came from the left” He added
”I can’t tell. I guess he wants to control Us or something” Prof. Michael added
”I don’t know the way right..” Prof. Michael said
”Let’s follow our left… He is just trying to take control of us just as he brought us out here for the past half an hour” Chief Williams said
”I guess so” Prof. Michael said and turned left..
For few minutes, their ride was peaceful but not until two black coloured cars overtook them..
”Get down!” A voice shouted from one of the cars…
THE HEART OF AN ASSASSIN
(Save My Past)
…”I said get in the car” The male voice from the lady yelled at them and ignited the engine
”Better be fast, cause more of these men are coming” The male voice said again and immediately, Chief Williams and Prof. Michaels without dusting their bodies entered the car not caring to know whom their Saviour is. She moved the car immediately with high speed leaving dusts behind.
”Please, who are you.. You really need to be rewarded young lady” Chief Williams said with a low voice
”Hope they didn’t hurt you baby?” Prof. Michael asked as they heard all the words they said but the Lady didn’t reply but concentrated on the driving
”Please talk to Us.. We can help you and your baby” Chief Williams said but still she said nothing but drive
”Errhmm.. Actually, I thank you young lady for saving Us from the consequences of our stubborness” Chief Williams said
”What stubborness” The lady asked
”Someone told us not to follow this road but we refused” Prof. Michael replied and the Lady kept quiet for a while
”Next time, you will surely die. Obedience is not a crime, but it’s hard for some people to adhere to for they think they know better” The Lady said and they starred at her not actually seeing her face from the front mirror
”Please tell Us, who are you?” They asked again ans she removed the Female faced mask on her face, removed all the foams and clothes in her body that made it looked like a pregnant Lady. Immediate, the now male drew the brakes behind a Power bike parked near the bush
”Make sure you burn these properly” The male voice said
”What?? A man!” Chief Williams exclaimed and Prof. Michael was heavily shocked
”Better stop panicking or asking questions and take this car out of here” He said and alighted from the car
”Spartacus???” Chief Williams called out along side Prof. Michael
”No time for words” Spartacus said and drove out with his bike
”Let’s get out from here” Prof. Michael said immediately and moved the car with much speed..
”This is the news at 10:00” The female voice said from the television
”The dead bodies of some armed young men were found in the one way road leading to the Ustrak mainland estate” The female voice said
”According to report, they were shot dear. But surprisingly, no trace of who are what shot them was found” She concluded and an advert began on the television
”No!!!!!” President Donatus screamed aloud shattering the remote of the television on the floor
”Chief Williams!! Chief Williams!!!” He called out
”Jeez..” He exclaimed again and his house thugs ran in immediately
”Boss, any problem” They asked him in a caring manner
”Get out!!” He barked at them and ran upstairs in anger immediately
”You musn’t live Williams.. I will surely deal with you!” He said as he ran up the staircase..
”Bella, please wait up” Cynthia said running after Bella who was walking out of her house
”That isn’t what I mean my dear. What I’m trying to say is that you should stop this your dirty work just to get money for your upkeep” Cynthia said in a low voice stopping Bella who wasn’t looking at her
”I will give you whatever you want in life just for you to stop this” Cynthia added
”I see.. Well thank you Ma.. If you spend on finish now, later you will like to feel like you own me and use me anyhow you feel like because you trained me? I don’t need such nonsense” Bella said and waved off Cynthia’s hands that she placed on her shoulders
”I’m not like that Bella, please, I want to help you” Cynthia shouted with a loud voice but Bella has already banged the gate behind her
”Ahmed, please lock the gate” Cynthia said to the gateman who was confused at what was happening..
”Oh God..” Cynthia exhaled and walked in…
”Natasha!” Mrs. Williams called
”Yes Madam” Natasha replied and walked out
”How do you feel now” Mrs. Williams asked
”Very fine Ma” Natasha replied
”Thank you” She added
”Alright, please have enough rest today, I will be going for a meeting. Don’t do anything” Mrs. Williams said with a smile
”Thank you Ma” Natasha said smiling also
”Tell mu husband where I went to when he comes back” Mrs. Williams said at the door
”Alright Ma” Natasha said and walked in with a smiling face..
