We had deposed of Cigaro and right now the only thing on our minds was getting away from here before any member of the deck came calling…….. I packed some stuff into a school bag and Sophia had already gotten her stuff together as if she was waiting for this to happen….I was surprised at that but I waved it off as nothing……
We took a quick shower but I didn’t enjoy the shower cos of my bandages and the pain in my shoulder……picking up a clean tuxedo suit from my wardrobe, I dressed hurriedly and met Sophia looking really sexy in a crop top and a black plaid skirt with sexy high heels………We were the power couple every one wished to be right now…..
We took Cigaro’s keys and packing our stuff in the car, we made for the airport, we had not gotten very far wen a call came in from Shege….I picked the phone but did not say a word….”So na yu come throw executioner overboard abi, no worry, we dey find you come”…….
I hung up and drove into a bush path……”where are we going”, Sophia asked with fear written all over her face…”Obinze forest”, I replied looking rather calm…….after driving miles, we arrived at Obinze forest but I didn’t stop, I drove into the thick bush and kept driving until my safe house got into sight…..I stopped the car and got out,”Don’t move till I get back”, I said without looking at Sophia as I went into the house…….I was shocked at what I found…..The house had been wiped clean, no single piece of property remained……this was strange…..Walking to where my bedroom once was……..I dislodged a large tile in the centre of the room with my pocket knife, brought out a big bag containing money and my atm cards as well as another bag containing my visa and other documents…….I walked out of the house and went straight to the boot with Sophia looking intently at me….closing the boot, I went back into the car and with a stern voice I asked Sophia, ”did you tell anyone about this safehoue”, ”No, why”, she replied shakily………”Nothing” I answered as I drove the car out of the thick bush in a cloud of dust…….
We drove in silence only stopping once when I had to make a withdrawal to facilitate our flight………two hours later, we were on a flight to Abuja and Sophia was staring at me, ”baby what’s wrong??”, she asked…..”are you sure you don’t know anything about what happened to my safe house??” I shot back at her……..”Nooo, she said, not at all”…………I said nothing else until we landed in Abuja…….I called my private driver and in the next five minutes a black range rover sport arrived to pick us up and in thirty minutes we had arrived at an exquisitely furnished mansion……..
”Home sweet home”, I said out loud as I got to my door steps ,”we’ve missed you sir”, my domestic staff mused in unison all beaming with smiles…….”welcome to my palace baby girl”, I said to Sophia after thanking my staff while picking her up and carrying her inside……I bet she was shocked judging from the way she kept looking at me mouth agape………there was a lot of things she didn’t know about me and she was soon to find out….getting to the bedroom, my personal phone began to ring…..looking at the screen, it was Shege!!!!!
