As I was eating at the table……It was very visible on my face that I was bothered but I tried as much as possible to desist from making it obvious to Sophia until I could place her activities in this whole puzzle…….I didn’t enjoy the meal cos my mind was hardly at ease and as such I couldn’t tell the taste of the food in my mouth, I just ate to ward away the voracious hunger eating through my tummy…….
I had hardly finished eating when my device started to vibrate again, it was Shege!!!!……I had had enough of this s–t!!!!!!…….I picked up the phone and listened, ”My maaaaan, where yu dey nah???”, I heard his sinister voice growl at the other end of the line. ”I dey where I dey chop my gee”, I replied…..”where????”, he pressed on….”This one you dey ask where I dey like dis, anything happen???” I said laughing into the mouthpiece sounding normal as if nothing had happened…..I needed to know how bad things already were so I continued to play along with his little charade……”make we dey mean baba!!!, shey you know say Cigaro don go overboard and we no know who do am, so if you know say no be you f–k up….abobby make you come around so we go reason our matter wella”, He said with a note of finality………My hands trembled.
Shege was smart, very smart to the point I wondered why he was not executioner in place of the foolish Cigaro…..I knew he wasn’t too sure I was the murderer so he wanted me to show face at the deck but it was too risky cos one way or another I would expose myself and it would spell the end of my life in the most horrible way. On the other hand, if I didn’t go, they would know for sure that am the murderer and that I was on the run thereby provoking the wrath of the entire cospirano clan…….This was deep s–t and even with all my plans, I hadn’t expected dis level of intelligence from shege, I had to buy time….”wetin you talk???”, I shouted into the mouth piece as I left the dining for the bedroom and closed the door behind me, ”you talk say wetin do cigaro”, I tried to sound as convincing as possible so as to throw shege off my track…..”baba no tell me say you no know say your executioner don go overboard oooo, We don storm all frat wey dey dis hood, no body gree say na dem tap am, so as for now, we dey view all our chappies dem cos na must say na in-house something”. D–n!!!!!! this guy was sharp upstairs……”ok baba wetin go happen be say if I finish the jojo wey Cigaro give me make I come do for here, I go show face for deck ruggedly”, i assured……..”no lele”, came the cold response at the other end as the line went dead….
I had bought some time but it wouldn’t last forever, these guys were as angry as hell……I made my way back to the dining to finish my meal and found Sophia seated, ”baby what’s wrong??? she asked………”nothing much, just people that work for me with their usual complains that will not allow me finish my food”, I replied as I resumed my meal……”ok, just know that your taking me out today ooooo”, she said walking out of the dining again, my phone started ringing again…..I picked it up and listened, ”I know your in Abuja”, it was triggers voice, ”yeah baby boy, am coming to get you”, I replied as I ended the phone call…….there was one thing on my mind now…..”was slow still alive??? If he is, den where the hell is he????
