Lisa had already matured into a beautiful lady and Charles put her in the best university so she could get quality education. One would say he spoilt her, he gave her everything she needed. Once she needed money, he always sent a huge amount to her. Charles on the other hand wasn’t getting any younger but he didn’t look any older . Women were still after him thinking he was still a young man.
I was driving home from work when a lady stopped me. The sun was too hot and I wanted to help a girl in need.
“Sir please I’m going your way and my house is around the corner,could you please give me a ride?” She asked humbly and I accepted.
We got to the building and it was big and beautiful and I started wondering what a millionaire like her would be doing under the sun with the kind of clothes she was wearing and the slipper she was putting on.
She made to leave the car after thanking me.
“Uh wait.” I said.
“What’s your name?” I added.
“Angel.” She said and smiled.
“Okay I’m Charles.” I said.
“Nice to meet you.” She smiled and stretched out her hand for me to shake her and I did.
“I was wondering, do you live here?” I asked.
“Uh… No I stay with my boss.” She said.
“Oh… Okay.” At least that cleared my doubts.
“So what does your boss pay you for?” I asked.
“I do the washing and cleaning in the house. And sometimes I do the cooking too.” She said plainly.
“Oh so you Cook well.” I said smirking.
“Yes sir.” She said.
“Alright that’s good. So do you have a phone? Can I get your number?” I asked.
“Sure.” She said then I gave her my phone to dial her number.
“Thanks.” I said once she was done.
“So when do you usually come back from the market? Because I normally see you around but I was ignorant of such a beauty you are.” I said and she blushed.
“Okay I always go to the market by 4pm in the evening.” She said smiling.
“That’s when I get back from work!” I said.
“Alright from now on, just call me once you’re almost done with the buying then I’ll leave my office and come pick you up since we live in the same vicinity. Does that sound good?” I asked smiling.
“Yes sir. Thank you sir.” She said looking so grateful.
“I have to go now.” She said and tried to open the door but it was locked.
“Oh sorry.” I said and unlocked it then she opened and said goodbye.
I watched her till she entered the building. She was indeed like an Angel. She was slim and fair in complexion and had a very nice skin. I really looked forward to seeing her some other time.
I got a call from Lisa’s school and it was one of her lecturers.
“She always attends classes but she hadn’t attended for the past 3 days.” He complained.

“Are you serious? Okay I’ll call her right away.” I said and hung up.
I dialed Lisa’s number over and over but she wasn’t picking up. I became so worried.
“Could my Lisa be missing?” I asked myself.
“No no no it can be. The school has maximum protection.”
“Or at least it’s supposed to.” I added.
I didn’t want to have negative thoughts so I calmed my mind and waited till the next day to go there and see things for myself.
**The next day**
I was at the lecturer’s office.
“How can my daughter just go missing just like that?” I thundered.
“We asked her roommate and she confirmed she hadn’t seen her for 4 days now.” He said.
“And she’s not even picking my calls.” I said.
“We just have to call for a search and then maybe visit the police because I care about her too.” He said and I took a quick look at him.
What he said reminded me so much of what my late wife passed through in the hands of lecturers.
“Don’t care too much about my daughter. Good day.” I stood up and left.
I got in my car and drove to the police station to file a report for a missing person.
After a long day at the police station, they gave me respect because they knew who I was in that community. I successfully got the police men searching for my daughter with just a little cash.
“Typical Nigerian police men.” I thought.
I got home and went straight to my bed room. Regina asked me if I wanted anything to eat, but I refused to take anything. All I wanted was my daughter. I couldn’t lose the person I loved so much over again.
I got out from the shower and my phone rang. I didn’t know the number so I decided to ignore because I wasn’t in the mood.
But my phone kept on ringing and ringing so I decided to finally pick up.
“Hello.” I said and heard a lady’s voice.
“Hey Mr Charles.” She said.
“Yes? Who’s this?” I asked impatiently.
“It doesn’t matter who I am. What matters is what I have.” She said.
“What nonsense are you talking about? If you have nothing else to say…” Then she cut me short.
“I have your daughter.” She said sternly.
“Excuse me?” I said.
“I said I have your daughter.” She repeated.
“I can see you have nothing reasonable to say.” I said and almost hung up.
“If you do what you’re about to do, you’ll regret it.” She said.
“What do you want from me!” I thundered.
“I want you!” She yelled.
“Why? Such a psychopath.” I said.
“I have Lisa and I’ll cut off her legs if you don’t cooperate.” She said and I was shocked. She wasn’t joking after all, she was very serious.
“Please don’t harm my daughter I beg you.” I pleaded.
“Oh Charles… What a bad memory you have.” She said.
“What are you talking about?” I said.
“So you don’t remember the voice of your sweetheart?” She said and giggled. Then my mind raced back and I remembered Vanessa.
“Of course! It was her. Her accent was so prominent. How could it have skipped my mind?” I thought.
“Vanessa?” I said.
“Bravo! You just scored a point.” She said and chuckled.
“Vanessa what do you want from me?” I said.
“I want to take back what rightfully belongs to me of course. And that is you!” She said.
“You must provide yourself… Else! Your daughter will kiss her legs bye bye.”
