at the building that was on display on all the

‘Guys, listen up.’ Ethel eventually spoke up.
They all looked at him.
He was seated in their midst, he was more calm

the major a?? minor roads. Kalu, security,and
all the possibilities… ‘ He began instructing.
Supporting himself with his arms, he lowered
himself to a chair and sipped water. His eyes
not leaving the screen of Precious.
‘Precious is that a major or minor? ‘
‘Sir?’ His personal assistant called.
Ethel looked in his direction.
‘I have found an indication of an entrance, I
have tried all access, it has been denied. ‘
Ethel wheeled his chair close. :That is part D

They both looked at it closely but Ethel’s brows

‘I have seen that before. ‘ He narrowed his
brows and reached for the keyboard, minimized
what was on the screen, did few typing and

‘Sir, they are almost the same. ‘ He observed
and looked at him with trust .
‘Wale, that is an underground. It is coded, get

‘Yes Sir. ‘ He stood and hurried out.
Ethel stood and sat on the seat Wale vacated.
From the elevator he saw her got out of the car
and look around. Oladimeji face glowed and he
laughed. ‘My baby is home!’

Appalled, Hester hope didn’t throw up.
That was the closest they had ever been.
Oladimeji touched her face. ‘How are you doing?

She gave him the benefit of a momentary look
but made no attempt to respond.
‘I know how you feel sweetheart, the journey
was long and exhausting. You look drained.’
‘I will be looking better if your boys didn’t
smoke and drink in the car. I was sneezing and
coughing ,I attempted to jump out of the
moving car because I was suffocating.
‘What! ‘ Every display of happiness vanished as
he turned to her escorts with a fierce look.
‘Emmmm …Boss …we …we can explain. ‘ Their
leader attempted and took a step backward.
‘Explain? ‘ He scoffed. ‘Scorpion, So it is true,

entrusted my jewel in your care for just two
days and she is not forgetting your habit. What

hand and slapped him.
The rest shuddered.

‘Sorry? ‘ He glared at him.’If you don’t get out of
my sight now, I will take off your head in such a
way that the vultures will be so sorry for your
corpse that won’t near it.’

Oladimeji directed his attention back to her. ‘Oh
baby, I am so sorry.’ He helped her to a seat.
‘Are you alright? ‘
‘I’m fine.’ She attempted a faint smile.
They left knowing there was trouble looming for
‘Are you sure? ‘ He moved a chair close.
