SHARON: Nice one King
She moved forward with Parcy and Great-Khali followed, before the guards could do anything, different bullets has entered their heads and they fall dead immediately.
The Elder made an attempt to run away but got a bullet gift on his right ankle which made him screamed at the top of his voice, this terrifies the King and he started to shiver;
KING: (Frightened) What’s happening here? Who are you people?
ME: I guess they’re your doom. (Laughing…. Parcy was made to come untie me by Great-kali but I stopped it) don’t worry, let him untie me himself…
The king shakily moved to where I was and untied the rope slowly. The moment I was freed I couldn’t help but landed a heavy slap on his face, I was boiling in anger and resentment. I just thank my stars, for if I didn’t accept the call, I wouldn’t have known what they have in store for me and my family;
ME: Parcy get me a gun.
KING: Please don’t kill me, I promise to give you any amount you want
ME: You think any amount will rebuild all you have done to me and my family? Can you give me 500million if I request for it?
KING: Ah! That’s too much please I beg you
ME: Then it’s too much to spare your life, I wanted you to be put to shame but no one sees Anini’s face and get to see another face again
PARCY: Who ever seeth and face the burning fire, shall see no f—–g light no more.
SHARON: The goddess is at the brim of her anger and whenever she’s vexed, nobody escapes her wrath.
She pointed her gun to the elder’s head who was creeping to safety and pulled the trigger, the bullet penetrated his brain cells and got out on the other side, splashing his entire brain and leaving his head useless and disgusting;
ME: As you can see, my people are not willing to give you a chance talk more of letting you see the sunlight again. Great-Khali please hand me you machete, I need to give him a slow and painful journey to the underworld.
He handed me the machete, which I held firmly with the intention to strike. I wanted to take it down his head when I saw that he has closed his eyes, I felt a little ting of pity for him but I didn’t let that distract me as I landed the sharp object on his neck and watched his head flew off.
I woke up to the sound of running water. The event of last night played on my mind continuously which made me got up and waited for Sharon to finish in the bathroom. I was feeling very hungry so I called the hotel service and ordered for fried rice and chicken with red wine.
Sharon came out few minutes later and I went inside to brush and bath, I stared at myself in the mirror clamped to the wall of the bathroom. Many things running through my mind, I believed that within an hour or two the news of the King will be heard on the air and it will be on every news stations and when that happens, the first call I’ll receive will be from no other person than my Mum.
The police will investigate the deaths and with all the palace workers including the maids that saw me arrive there last night, I might be called to book. I grabbed my toothbrush, added paste to it and started brushing, well the news report will surely come when its time. Whether I am mentioned or not, there must definitely be a way out.
I finished bathing and entered the room to find the food already placed beside the bed, I didn’t see Sharon but I saw a note on the table, I picked the note and read what she wrote;
“I’m downstairs with the guys, chilling at the hotel restaurant” I just shrugged after reading the short note and went on with toweling my body. I wore a nice outfit, after applying cream on my body.
When done, I settled down with the food and in no time I realized I’ve finished it. Mehn the food no reach me, so I placed another order, I packed the plate waiting patiently for whoever is bringing the food. I can’t help but recall I told them to hurry up.
Few minutes later I heard the doorbell ring, ‘come in’ I yelled…
The door opened and a lady walked in, I was dumbfounded immediately. She was just too beautiful with killer curves and body; she has this smile that makes my heart melt as she moves towards me still smiling.
Getting to where I was, she dropped the tray she was carrying in front of me and greeted;
HOTEL ATTENDANT: Good morning sir
HOTEL ATTENDANT: It looks like you enjoy our food and service
ME: Yeah! Its good, and you have good and beautiful staffs here, just like you
HOTEL ATTENDANT: (Blushing) Thank you sir…
ME: So, what’s the name?
HOTEL ATTENDANT: Alicia Smith
ME: Wow! What a beautiful name for a beautiful lady, that is a foreign name though
ALICIA: Thanks… I’ll take my leave now so you can enjoy your meal
She bent down picking the first sets of plate I ate with, and was about to leave when I halted her;
ME: Hmm not so fast, can I at least have your digits, wish to hangout with you later in the day
ALICIA: Uh! I can’t give you my digits and I don’t have any reason to give you
ME: When are you getting off work?
ALICIA: By 4PM
ME: See you later then…
She smiled and cat walked out of the room leaving me stunned by myself, I was really confused because I don’t know if I really know what’s happening to me at the moment. I started eating my food with the aim of seeing her later in the day.
I was taking a nap when I heard the doorbell ring, I stood up and head for the door. I opened the door to find Great-Khali standing patiently with a newspaper in his hand, I ushered him in and closed the door back as we took our seats;
GREAT-KHALI: This is what I came here for (handing the newspaper to me)… It’s not a big deal, Just wanted you to see it, flip the page over to see another headline.
The first headline reads: THE KING OF OTOR-OWHE LAND KILLED AS HIS HEAD WAS CUT OFF AND DISPLAYED AT THE MARKET PLACE, HIS BODY WAS FOUND WITH FIVE OTHER DEAD BODIES, ONE IDENTIFIED AS AN ELDER AND THE REMAINING FOUR AS THE KINGS PERSONAL GUARDS.
ME: (Laughing) you guys are wicked oh, Choi! I didn’t instruct you guys to stack the head at the market square. I said while still laughing hysterically
GREAT-KHALI: Na your order we carry out oh, Anini the great, the man wey no man fit match him face and go Scot free without losing a leg, hand and head… I hail oh
ME: All thanks to the disciples, the lions and lioness who made the squad strong and firm. Well make I continue with the reading
Second Headline: THE DEPUTY GOVERNOR OF LAGOS STATE MR. GABRIEL GORDONS AFTER BUYING SOME ACRES OF LAND WORTH 100 OF MILLIONS REFUSE TO PAY.
Story line: ONE MR RAYMOND, A PETTY FARMER ALLEGELY ACCUSE THE DEPUTY GOVERNOR OF LAGOS MR. GABRIEL GORDON OF THEFT WHEN HE REFUSED TO PAY THE MAN AFTER BUYING SOME ACRES OF LAND THAT WORTH 100 OF MILLIONS FROM HIM, THE DEPUTY GOVERNOR IS YET TO DENY THE ACCUSATION AS HE REMAIN SILENT LEAVING THE PEOPLE WITH THE BELIEVE THAT THE ACCUSATION IS A TRUE ONE. THE GOVERNMENT IS NOT GIVING MR. RAYMOND THE ATTENTION HE NEEDED AS THEY FAIL TO BRING THE DEPUTY GOVERNOR TO JUSTICE… ‘IT’S NOT FAIR!’ THAT IS EXACTLY THE PHRASE THE PEOPLE AROUND ARE SAYING..
ME: This is some huge amount of money that can make someone rich forever if God wants…
GREAT-KHALI: Exactly, how can someone be so heartless to do that to a fellow human, he’s not even afraid of the lion squad.
ME: (Smiling) He thinks we can’t strike a person like him since he’s a top citizen in Nigeria but he forgets that the gods never know if someone is at the top or the bottom because they’re all equal in our eyes.
GREAT-KHALI: That’s why we need to teach him some lessons before the month runs out, I’ll gather the necessary information about him immediately
ME: That’s good, I’ll talk with Parcy and Sharon about the new mission so they wouldn’t be caught off guard
GREAT-KHALI: Yes bro, I will be glad if we pick up this fight as our own fight.
He stood up leaving me with my thought. Immediately Great-kali left, I hastily pick up my phone to call Mum and she picked at first ring;
ME: Hello Mum!
MUM: My son, good morning… I heard the news about the King’s death, what happened?
ME: I can’t really say, I’m also in the dark…We’ll talk more when I return back___ Yes, we really need to talk
MUM: (Frighten) what happen? Talk about what?
ME: Don’t worry you’ll know when I come.
MUM: Ok o… bye
I hung up and went back to bed to continue my short sleep (nap).
