Okoro cleared his throat as his three beautiful daughters stare up at him. They had just finished having their evening meal together and the girls had nagged and begged their father, Okoro, to tell them one of his beautiful stories.
“Once upon a time there lived a hunter called Ajakasi. Many hunters lived in his village. Some hunters used guns, some used bows and arrows, others used sticks and cutlasses to do their hunting.
Ajakasi went on a hunting expedition early one morning. He went deep into the bush. He wondered around all day long, but the bush seemed deserted, and by late afternoon he had not even seen a bird. He was terribly tired and hungry. He decided to go back home. Just as he was about to turn back, he heard an unusual sound coming from somewhere in the distance. He listened carefully, thinking he finally got lucky; he hard peeap peeap peeap uuwuurgh oowuurgh uuuwuurgh.
He said to himself, goodness, that sounds like a big animal, maybe even a lion, I’ll sneak up carefully and see if I can find it. He headed in the direction from which the sound was coming, and soon he came upon a clearing in the forest, and right there in the middle of the clearing was a big hole. He approached gingerly, and craned his neck so as to be able to see inside the pit, and what did he see?
He saw a lion.
Instinctively he jumped back, then after collecting his nerves, he approached the hole again, and craned his neck so as to be able to see inside the pit; then he saw a snake in the same pit! And he saw a man, crouching in one of the corners. Ajakasi couldn’t help but wonder what was happening down there, why was the lion not eating the man?
Then he also saw a rat! He couldn’t believe is eyes, so there was a lion down there, and a huge snake, and a man and a rat!
The lion was he first to spot Ajakasi. Please Mr Hunter, get me out of this pit! I‘m terribly hungry! Ajakasi shook his head, and with a trembling voice, said: I’m really sorry Mr Lion, but I can’t do that! A hungry lion? How can I pull you out? As soon as I get you up here you’re going to have me for your lunch!
The lion growled in response. Don’t you think I could have eaten this man here, he asked. Or the snake, or the rat? We all agreed not to eat each other but to stick together, so that we might all get out of here. I guarantee that if you help us you will be safe
The man in the pit joined in: Please Mr Hunter, believe us, the lion is telling the truth, please get us out of here, please help us. The snake joined in, hissing, and the rat was squeaking. The hunter was touched.
All right, he said, all right, I’ll help you. Just hold on while I find something. He went into the trees, and found the longest possible rope, he tied one end to the nearest tall tree, and pulled it hard to test it. When he was satisfied that it would be strong enough to pull all those creatures out of the pit. He threw the loose end into the hole. And who was the first to come out? Of course, the lion, the snake came out next, and then the rat and finally the man crawled to the surface. The lion gave Ajakasi a heavy handshake. Ouch, screamed Ajakasi, you’ve hurt me! That was painful! Is that how you’re going to thank me?
No, no, no, no, said the lion, Thank you very much indeed, Mr Hunter, I will see you again. With that the lion disappeared into the jungle. The snake thanked him too, and slithered away. The man thanked him, and ran off.
The rat was the last to thank him; I won’t forget your kindness, he said before scurrying off in the undergrowth.
Ajakasi was left all by himself; it was getting dark and he remembered how hungry he was, so he too set off back to his hut in the village.
Several days later, very early in the morning, even before the sun had crawled over the horizon, he heard somebody knocking loudly on his door.
Bhoumm Bhoumm Bhoumm! Who is there, asked Ajakasi. But there was no reply. He opened the door, and there stood the lion. Ajakasi was scared to the marrow, and almost threw the door shut again, but the lion raised a paw in greeting. Mr Lion, sighed Ajakasi, you really scared me there! I’m sorry about that, said the lion, I suppose that can’t be helped. I can’t very well turn up here in broad daylight, can I now? Ajakasi had to agree. Well then, said the lion, you did something wonderful for me the other day, you were very brave to help the four of us get out of that pit. So I have come to thank you, just come over here. The lion stood back and Ajakasi stepped outside. There, in front of his house he found a huge pile of wild meat. All for you, said the lion, and wandered off.
Ajakasi was very excited. He sat to work immediately cleaning the meat and cutting it up. He kept some in his hut and took the rest to the city to sell. He got a lot of money for it! A few more days went by, when Ajakasi was woken again by the same noise coming from his door. He opened the door carefully, and found the lion there again. The lion directed him to the usual spot, and there was an even bigger pile of meat! Again, Ajakasi cleaned the meat, cut it up and took it to the market to sell. He got even more money. The remarkable thing was that the lion kept coming back every three or four days to bring more meat. Ajakasi became a very rich man. He could pay his debt, he built a new hut, he bought new wrappers for himself and all his family members He was turning into a very happy man.
Then one day, he noticed a hole in the roof of his new house. Oooh, what is this? He went to inspect and to his surprise he saw a rat peeping through the hole. Aaaii, said Ajakasi, who are you, and what are you doing to my roof, making holes in it? The rat said: Don’t you remember me? I’m the rat you rescued from the pit in the jungle, some time ago now. If it hadn’t been for you coming along I would surely have ended up as supper for the lion or the snake! I’ve come to bring you something to thank you, just wait there a minute.
Ajakasi was left speechless, he watched as the rat disappeared, but came back presently, lugging an enormous sack, which he dropped through the hole at Ajakasi’s feet. Take these things, the rat said, as a token of my appreciation , and then he disappeared as quickly as he had come. Ajakasi, tugged at the sack, and opened it.
When he saw what was inside he almost fainted. The sack was filled with gold, diamonds, emeralds and other precious stones and minerals
Now Ajakasi was almost the wealthiest man in the whole village. Only the chief was richer. It so happened that a few months later thieves broke into the chief’s compound while he was away on a trip. They took everything that had any value. When he returned the chief was soooo sad, he wept for days on end. People came from all over the district to bring him presents and to console him. Ajakasi also went to see him and took some pieces of gold. One day the man who was rescued from the pit by Ajakasi passed through the village and called at the chief’s compound. He asked to see the chief, saying that he had some information about the theft. The chief had him ushered into his private quarters immediately, he was still very sad and tearful, and asked his visitor to tell him everything he knew without stalling. Don’t cry again, nana, the man started, I know who it was who stole all your jewels and your rich kente cloths. Who is that man? The chief shouted. Where is he?
Don’t worry, said the visitor, he is here in the village, it is the hunter Ajakasi.
The chief fell down on his chair. Ajakasi? I don’t believe it, he is such a good man!
The man raised his hand up. Don’t you remember, Oh great chief, Ajakasi was just a poor wretched hunter, but look at him now, he has built a new house, almost as big as your own, he has bought new clothes for himself and all his family, and he never goes out hunting any more, yet he always has plenty of meat on his table. How is he able to do all that…? He is surely the one who stole all your things.
The chief was now very angry. He called some of his soldiers and commanded them to arrest Ajakasi and bring the thief before him immediately. This was done. The soldiers went to Ajakasi’s house, tied him up and brought him before the chief. He was mercilessly beaten. He tried to explain how it was that he had come by his riches, but when he mentioned the lion bringing him meat, the soldiers just beat him more, and when he mentioned the rat bringing him gold and precious metals in a sack, the chief shouted: Enough! Tie him to the stocks, and tomorrow morning we will execute him!
So, Ajakasi was put in the stocks and condemned to death as punishment for a crime he didn’t commit. He realized he would be executed the next morning and there was nothing he could do about it. After darkness had fallen and the last of the village people had gone home, he felt a strange sensation around his ankles. What is this, he wondered, what is going on now? He heard the hissing of a snake, and when he looked down he saw a large snake slithering on the ground in front of him.
I would normally be afraid of you, said Ajakasi, but as I’m going to die anyway tomorrow, I’m not really worried. Well, said the snake, you’re right not to be worried. You probably don’t remember me, but I am the snake you rescued from that pit in the jungle all those weeks ago now. I have come to thank you for what you did.
Oh. It was nothing really, said Ajakasi, but I’m afraid it’s a little bit late. I’m about to be executed! I have been accused of a crime I never committed.
We’ll see about that, said the snake. I have a plan. I have some medicine here, which I’ll hide under your belt. I understand the king has a very beautiful daughter. That’s right, confirmed Ajakasi, she is his only child. Even better, said the snake. I am going to give her a little bite, and poison her. She will surely die, but the medicine in the bottle is an antidote, the only thing that will cure my bite. When you save the life of the king’s only child, he will be forever in your debt, and he surely will not want to kill you any more! With that the snake slithered towards the chief’ living quarters.
Be careful, don’t get caught! whispered the hunter.
As the sun sent its first rays over the eastern wall of the compound, Ajakasi heard some screams coming from the chief’s living quarters. Women were wailing. Ouwooaagh! The king’s only daughter! Owowowow! A snake has bitten her! Owowowow! The snake has run away! Owowowowo! Why is this happening?! Owowowow!
People were running towards the house.
Ajakasi shouted at them: I can bring this girl back to life! A soldier came up to Ajakasi, and shouted at him: Shut up, you’re only a common thief!
Ajakasi pleaded with him: I am sincere, I can really bring the girl back to life, go and tell the chief! The soldier spat at him, and told him again to keep quiet. But as he was running to the chief’s house, the soldier thought to himself: what if the condemned man was telling the truth? The chief would be grateful to him and he would surely be rewarded. He had nothing to loose by telling the chief.
At first, when the chief was told that Ajakasi could bring his daughter back to life, he didn’t want to know. That man is only trying to postpone his execution, he thought. But when he looked at the body of his dead daughter, and saw his distraught wife, he changed his mind. After all, there was nothing to be lost, and everything to be gained. You never know what secrets these hunters learn in the jungle. So he ordered his soldiers to cut Ajakasi loose and bring the man to him.
When Ajakasi got to the dead girl’s bedside, he asked for a bowl and some water. He poured in the medicine that the snake had given him, and stirred it with his fingers until it was well mixed into a smooth sauce.
This he mopped up with a piece of plain cotton cloth, and he squeezed the liquid into the dead girl’s nostrils. The chief and his wife and all the soldiers were watching his every move. Ajakasi knew very well that if the girl didn’t revive he would be dead on the spot.
But the girl twitched her nose. Itchee! Itchee!
She sneezed! The chief shouted: She sneezed! Slowly the girl opened her eyes, and the chief jumped up and down for joy. The girl’s mother rushed to her side and the soldiers started to dance. The girl spoke to her mother: mommy, where am I? I’m hungry, can you get me some fufu?
Ah, the chief and his wife were so excited! A servant brought in some fufu with a wonderful soup, and the girl ate everything.
Ajakasi was carried shoulder high all around the village. When things quietened down a little the chief sent for him.
Ajakasi, the chief addressed him, you have done me a great service, the greatest possible service, so I am going to save your life. But you must tell me, honestly and without lying, why did you have to steal all my property.
Ajakasi replied: O my great chief, I really didn’t steal your property, as I’ve been trying to tell everyone. He then told the chief his remarkable story, what had happened in the jungle, how he found the lion, the snake, the rat and the man in the pit and how he got them out. How the lion thanked him by bringing him meat, which he sold at a great profit; how the rat brought him gold and diamonds and other precious minerals, some of which he sold and got even more money for.
But his fellow human being thanked him by getting him into trouble. If it had not been for the snake coming to his rescue at the last minute, he would not be standing here to tell his tale.
The king was astonished by the tale. He apologized to Ajakasi for not believing him and he ordered all his possessions to be restored to him. To show the chief he did not harbour any grudges, Ajakasi organized a big feast, which went on long into the night”. Okoro finished at last.
“You are the best storyteller papa. The gods really gave you the wisdom in storytelling”, Ogbanje said cheerfully as her sisters nodded their heads in unison.
“So what do You learnt in the story?” Asked Okoro to his daughters.
“I learnt that we should not be greedy”, Uzochi responded immediately. Okeke nodded his head
“I also learnt that we should never be jealous of one another”. Okoro nodded his head again.
“And what of you Ada?”
“I learnt we should be helpful to one another”, Ogbanje said
“And most importantly we should learn how to Love one another”. Okoro said pleased with his daughters answers and finally bid them a good night rest.
“The greatest wrestler of our time, the one whose blow would kill a living Lion with a single punch. What brings the greatest of greatest to my humble home today”, said Okoro as he shower praises on Omekannaya. His son Obinwanne was nodding his head in pride. Four of their guards were behind Obinwanne also their head were swollen with pride like a peacock. Different assorted layers of clothes, tubers of yams, palm wine were kept in front of Okoro.
Omekannaya cleared his voice and said with a rich voice “Okoro, you know if a toad is seen running during daylight, then either something is chasing the toad or the toad is chasing something”, Omekannaya said.
“Well said Omekannaya but that hasn’t answer my question and you know it”. Okoro said with a smile on his face.
“True. Anyway, my son here, Obinwanne, told me that he saw a beautiful flower planted here that he would love to settle down with”. Omekannaya said happily to Okoro.
“I still don’t understand you my friend, please elaborate more on that”.
“…”, Omekannaya was interrupted by his son.
“What my father is trying to tell you is that your daughter has found favour in my eyes”, Obinwanne said this time.
“That is very good. Well, It is every parents dream and joy to be alive and see their children get married. But you know I have only three beautiful daughters, so I don’t know the one Obinwanne is speaking off”. Said Okoro.
“It is no other person than your first daughter, Ada”. Omekannaya told Okeke.
“Well”, clears his throat, “That’s good also, but I can not make nor can I decide for my daughter, Ada. You will have to ask her yourself, if she agrees or not, it depends on her”. Okoro said in wisdom.
“You said well Okoro”. Said Omekannaya.
“Let me call her out so you can tell her yourselves. Ada! Ada ooo!!”.
Ogbanje’s voice filled the air “Yes papa”.
“Please come out quickly”, Okoro said as Ogbanje stopped whatever she was doing inside and rushed out to meet her father.
“Father, you called me”. Said Ogbanje as she greeted the people with her father.
“Yes my daughter. Ehmm Ada, my friend here Omekannaya said his son, Obinwanne, wants to get married to you. So I called you here so that you can give an answer to his proposal”.
Turns to look at Obinwanne in abysmal “Do I know you? How can you just come and ask me to marry you when we don’t even know each other?. What am I even saying self, I do not even know you and I won’t marry you so don’t come here and start telling my father rubbish. This is aberrant and I do not like it”. Ogbanje hissed at them angrily.
Omekannaya seemed surprise at the out burst of Ogbanje. “Ada, we are not quarreling neither are we fighting eh. I only came here to seek your hand in marriage for my son Obinwanne”.
Ogbanje grow annoyed by the second, her nose flared in anger.
Meanwhile, Obinwanne was busy smiling at Ogbanje, the more she grew angry the more he fall deeply in love with her.
He clears his throat prompting Ogbanje to stop and look at his direction.
“My jewel, ola mu, achalugo, it hasn’t gotten to that extend for you to raise your voice at my father, your future father-in-law and for the records, you will soon become my wife”.
“I see you are so full of yourself, nonsense”, said Ogbanje as she turned to her father, “Papa, I was doing something inside the kitchen so since I have made myself clear, I will head back to the kitchen now”. Ogbanje said as she left their presence.
Okoro turned to face his visitors. “You have heard from the horses mouth itself”. Okoro told his guests.
“That little girl has the guts to talk back at me and reject my proposal”. Obinwanne told himself that night as he strode the frontage of his hut in thought. “She must be mine at all cost, that maiden must be mine. I will do everything to get married to her”.
“I am going down to earth to dwell among the mortals soon and get married to the beautiful maiden that my heart beat for”. Ikenga told Aku and the rest of the little gods that serve him. “But I will need a plan, a plan that will make Ogbanje like me. A plan that will make her mine”. Said Ikenga.
He has to be prepared, for he know what Amadioha can do. He only hope he doesn’t involve Njoku ji into this.
“Njoku ji, I need your help”, Amadioha said to his brother in his aboard as Njoku ji turns to look at his brother whom he hasn’t seen for a long period of time.
“What is it again Amadioha my beloved brother. You know I am a peaceful god who doesn’t stir up a fight without knowing the cause of it”.
“It’s about Ikenga, he has bitten more than he chew and this time around, I will pour out my venom on him”. Amadioha said finally.

Mr Padgett,start saying your last prayer already” I smiled and slide my feet into a stop-him-dead-i
I got to the living room and met everyone of them seated.
They turned and let out a little gasp as they saw me.
“Who’s this? Is this Mia?” Robbie asked and i laughed.
The rest smiled .. except Carla and boss.
Boss is known for rarely smiling but Carla,i don’t know what the hell is wrong with her.
“I’m done boss” I bowed and he stood up.
“You have to use a silencer, Mr Padgett has some bodyguards who might barge into the room the moment they hear the gunshot. I know you’re capable of killing them all even if they barge into the room but then…we gotta be on a safe side” He said.
“Okay boss” I said, ignoring Joel’s piercing look.
“You can leave now and drive fast,you gotta be there before the real slut arrives. Make use of the red car,Robbie has loaded it with everything you’ll need” He said and threw the car key to me.
I caught it immediately.
“Okay boss” I said and headed to the door.
I opened the door and smiled before stepping out.
I get excited when I’m about to go kill.
I walked towards the neat looking red car.
I unlocked it and got behind the wheels.
The gate opened automatically and i drove out…
I drove past three estates before finally getting on the road… Our house is so hidden and very difficult to locate and i love it that way. It makes us feel safe.
I increased the car speed and in minutes i’ve gotten halfway.
“D.A hotel” I muttered and glanced at the silencer.
I should just get there already..
I parked a street before the hotel,i tucked the silencer inside my waist band before getting down from the car.
I locked it and threw the key in my purse.
I walked farther before boarding a cab.
“D.A hotel” I said and closed the cab door.
The cabman looked surprised.
“Ma’am,the hotel is just a street away” He said.
“Like I’m not gonna pay you your money” I shot him a glare.
“Ohh..” He smiled and turned on the ignition and started driving away.
I sighed…if only this man know he’s in the cab with the infamous New York assassin,i bet he’s just gonna jump out.
I rested my head and breathed in.
The silencer felt cold against my stomach.
“We’re there already ma’am” The cab man said stopping in front of D.A hotel.
I glanced up and noticed how big the hotel is,it’s more beautiful than in pictures.
I opened my purse and dropped some dollar bills on the backseat before alighting from the cab.
“Thanks ma’am” The cabman said happily before driving away.
I adjusted my mini gown and held my purse tightly.
Dusk is setting in.
I walked towards the large steel gate,the gatekeepers paved way for me to go in and i did.
I took my time in surveying the building,i might want to escape through one of the windows.
I got to the reception.
“Hi” I said to the young ladies behind the desk.
“Hello,you’re welcome to D.A Hotel and Suite ” They chorused.
“Thank you” I let out a fake sweet smile.
“Do you want a room?”
“Nah,I’m Allysia Scott.” I said, that’s actually the name of the expected prostitute.
“Ohh..Allysia Scott,the lady Mr Padgett is expecting?”
“Yeah” I smiled.
“Okay,hold on. I have to tell him you’re here” She said and punched some numbers into the landline.
I continued my survey as i watched her make the call.
“He said you can come in,but i guess he was surprised you came earlier than the time you both agreed” She said.
“Ohh..Yeah” I smiled.
“Okay thanks” I said and started walking towards the lift.
“You look beautiful though” They chorused after me.
“Thank youu” i said.
I walked out of the lift and started approaching suite 58 when i saw ten bodyguards standing by the door.
They look mean though but they didn’t scare as much as a hair on my head.
I can deal with everyone of them in minutes.
I walked towards the door…
“Hi,I’m Allysia Scott” I said to them.
“Your ID card” one of them asked.
Wow! They really mean business.
“You expect me to bring my ID card here,am i gonna use my ID card to fuck! Mr Padgett?” I asked slowly.
“I’m sorry but we’ll have to search you and also your purse” One of them said.
“You mean,you’re gonna search me? You’re gonna touch my body? I can’t allow that” I said.
“Of course, we will not be the one to search you. Susan” He called and a lady appeared, she’s clad in a black suit, looking huge like most of the bodyguards,i can tell she’s a bit pretty even tho she was putting on shades. Her blonde hair is packed in a ponytail.
“Search her” a bodyguard said to her and she nodded.
“Really?” I asked,my anger brewing.
I was starting to think on how to deal with everyone of them when a deep voice stopped me.
“Let her in” Mr Padgett said from the room.
The bodyguards paved way immediately and i walked in after sending each of them a glare.
I closed the door behind me and smiled seductively at the Man who was half naked on the nice looking bed holding a glass cup of wine.
I glanced round the suite and it was extraordinarily
“Oh..I never knew Allysia Scott will be this beautiful” He smiled and sat up.
He picked the remote control and switched off the TV.
“Hi Mr Padgett” I said, walking closer to him.
“Allysia,i can’t wait to have you” He licked his lips.
Ew! so disgusting.
I dropped my purse and sat beside him.
“Shift closer to me baby girl” He said and i did.
He carresed my face and I had to use a smile to cover my irritated face.
“The picture that was sent to me was totally different from what I’m seeing” He said about to touch my boobs.
I cleared my throat and shifted away in the process.
“The picture that was sent to you was when i was younger” I said.
“I thought as much” He said.
“Why would your bodyguards treat me that way? Aren’t they aware of my coming?” I asked, faking an angry face.
“I’m so sorry dear” He pleaded, drawing me closer again.
I inhaled a sharp breath when his palm finally landed on my left boob.
I didn’t shift away this time.
“You should call one of them and tell him he must allow me leave without questioning” I said.
“Okay. Matthew” He called.
“Yes boss” Matthew rushed in.
“Must you search everyone that come looking for me. Weren’t you aware that i was expecting her. This is Allysia Scott” Mr Padgett,a bit of anger in his voice.
I smiled inwardly.
“I’m sorry sir” He bowed.
“Good,you mustn’t let that happen when she’s leaving okay?”
“Okay Sir” He said.
“You can leave” He said and the so called Matthew left.
“I wasn’t expecting you this early,i should have told them to allow you in without questioning. I was surprised when i was called that you’ve arrived” Mr Padgett said and i smiled.
“I couldn’t wait to get down with you” I licked my lips and stood up.
“I hope the CCTV in here has been blocked” I said,even though i know Robbie has hacked all the CCTV in this hotel before i came in.
“Of course,i personally ordered them to block this suite’s”
“Good” I muttered.
I unzipped my gown and slowly pulled it down to my waist.
“Oh..my” He gasped. ” let me see more baby” He smiled.
If i should pull this gown further,then I’m gonna reveal the silencer.
“You know what?” I asked.
“Keep your eyes close and open it when i tell you to” I said.
“Okay” He grinned and foolishly closed his eyes.
I brought out the gun and pointed it at him.
“So sad, you’ll be closing your eyes to hell” i said.
“Huh!” He exclaimed, about opening his eyes when i pulled the trigger.
I shot him thrice in the chest,his eyes snapped opened and he stared at me in agony, blood gushed out from his chest and his open eyes didn’t last a minute before closing itself,he stopped breathing and then i knew he was gone.
I laughed and tucked the gun back in my waist band,i pulled on my gown and zipped it.
I glanced at the wall clock and decided to wait for some minutes.
I sat beside Mr Padgett still body,grabbed the remote control and switched on the TV.
“Time to leave” I muttered and stood up from the bed.
I grabbed my purse and buckled my sandals tightly before walking to the door.
I turned back and glanced at Mr Padgett’s body
‘Rest in pieces’ I said inwardly before opening the door.
I stepped out and met the bodyguards there.
“Mr Padgett said he doesn’t want to be disturbed for now,none of you should go in” I said before walking away.
“Goodbye Allysia” the ladies said to me when i got to the reception.
“Bye” I waved before walking out of the hotel and into the compound.
It’s getting dark though..
I was almost at the gate when i saw the real Allysia Scott approaching.
I better get out of here fast.
She spared me some glances as she walked past me.
The security guard opened the gate and i stepped out.
I quickly raced to the next street where my car is parked.
I brought out the car key from my purse and unlocked the car.
I got in, closed the door a and removed the silencer from my waist band.
I turned on the ignition and started driving away.
I took a shorter route.
Another mission accomplished…
I stepped down from the car and smiled.
I removed my wig as i started walking into the house.
The door already opened before i could open it myself.
Joel appeared and ushered me in. I returned his smiled.
He closed the door behind us and i walked to the living room, everyone was present, obviously waiting for me.
I bowed before boss who raised up his head from the bullets he was arranging.
“Mia,i don’t need to ask you how it went,you always accomplish your mission” He said and i smiled.
“Mr Padgett is already long gone” I said.
“Good job Mia” He said.
“Thanks boss” I bowed a little.
“I’ve restored the hotel’s CCTV” Robbie said,operating his computer.
“Good job Mia” Anne and Joel chorused as i sat down.
“Thanks” I smiled.
“When will i be sent on a mission boss?” Carla asked.
“Soon, but you have to promise you won’t miss the target again this time” Boss said.
“I won’t boss,i promise” Carla said happily.
Carla missed the target on two different missions and boss has refused to allow her go on any other mission since then. I just hope she won’t blow up this upcoming mission too.
“I already prepared dinner,others have eaten but i was waiting for you” Joel whispered to me.
“Ohh,I’ll just go freshen up then” I said and was about standing.
“The news is out already” Robbie said and turned his laptop to us.
☄️ MR PADGETT, THE LARGEST SHAREHOLDER BAILOTT HAS BEEN MURDERED IN D.A HOTEL BY THE ANONYMOUS ASSASSIN IN NEW YORK CITY ☄️
His picture was displayed below and i didn’t even feel sorry a bit.
“You did a good job Mia, you’ve always done a good job” Boss said and i smiled.
“Thanks boss, I’m going in to freshen up” I said and stood up.
I picked my purse and then walked to my room.
📺MR PADGETT, THE LARGEST SHAREHOLDER OF BAILOTT HAS BEEN MURDERED IN D.A HOTEL BY THE ANONYMOUS ASSASSIN IN NEW YORK CITY📺
This is actually getting out of hand.
I picked up the remote control and switched it off.
I sat up and drew the blanket up to my chest.
I just finished the chicken casserole Katy brought for me for dinner.
I was happy I’ll be leaving here tomorrow but this news just darkened my mood.
I kept wondering who this assassin is.
She has killed up to 100 people,she has been killing for years, taking innocent lives yet no one is doing anything.
I picked my phone when i heard it beep.
💬Have you watched the news?
💬I feel like killing that assassin right now😠” I read Katy’s message and laughed.
The door suddenly opened and i saw Katy walked in.
i was surprised to see her cleavage popping out in the skimpy gown she was putting on.

📞Dad! I only got shot in the leg,i wasn’t killed” I said into the phone.
I was laying on the hospital bed after getting shot a night before in a shootout with criminals.
Dad has always complained about my job, he’s afraid to lose me cause I’m the only one he has but i have my reasons for choosing this line of job.
I don’t tell him whenever i got shot cause i know how worried he’ll be and it might raise his already high blood pressure.
I wonder who told him that i got shot!
📞Darrel leave that job and come take over my companies. You’re endangering your life!” He said worriedly.
Dad is a prominent socialite who owns several companies in and outside the country.
📞Dad,you know I’ve always wanted to be what i am presently,I’m good at this job dad and guess what?” I asked.
He growled and i sighed.
📞Well…im gonna tell you anyway,i got promoted last week” I smiled.
📞And so what?”
📞Ah! Won’t you congratulate me,my salary has increased and i now have my junior colleagues bow and salute me” I grinned.
📞Darrel,you’re gonna earn more once you become a CEO of one of my companies,i will leave you to handle it all,i don’t care about the amount you’ll squander” He said.
📞Of course i know that but I’m not doing this for money,I’m doing it cause i love doing it..it’s my passion dad,please just accept it” I said and heard him sigh.
I smiled…he’s already giving in,i just need to add more spice.
📞For the meantime” I added.
📞For the meantime?” He asked.
📞Yes Dad,for the meantime” I said.
📞Okay,I’m coming to check on you ” He said.
📞Huh? Aw! I’ve been discharged already” I lied.
📞Yes Dad,the bullet didn’t penetrate deeply”
📞Ohh.. i thought it was severe” He said.
📞Nah! It wasn’t,will you come to my house?” I asked, knowing well that he won’t.
📞No! I can’t come to that little place you call a house ” He said and i laughed.
📞I have lots of mansions but you decided to rent that little apartment”
I moved out of the mansion months ago,i needed to be alone,i needed to concentrate on my job and i needed to be free.
Dad was always disturbing me and he doesn’t even allow me to go out in the night whenever i was called for emergency.
📞Dad,I’m fine here” I said.
📞Of course you’ll be, just make sure you don’t go for shootout or whatever you call it again okay?”
📞Okay Dad” I stifled a laughter wondering how his face will look like at the moment.
📞I have to go,i have meetings to attend” He said.
📞You should have been the one attending this meetings but you chose to…”
📞Bye dad” I interrupted him by quickly disconnecting the call.
He nags too much.
I dropped my phone beside me and glanced up at the TV.
It was displaying news,a woman anchor appeared on the screen beneath a banner that read;
📺 COUPLE KILLED OVERNIGHT IN NEW YORK BY AN ANONYMOUS ASSASSIN.
“Again!” I exclaimed.
“Aren’t the New York detectives competent enough to have sorted out this assassin all this years. They couldn’t come up with a tangible thing,all they could come up with is that the assassin is a female.
She keeps killing innocent people without being apprehended! What sort of cruelty is that?” I said to myself.
“Buddy what’s up?” I heard and glanced up to see Eric,my friend,he’s also my colleague at work,he walked in with Jed,our junior colleague who bowed and saluted immediately he got to my bed.
“I didn’t even heard the ward door open” I said.
“Yeah,what’s with the frown?” Eric asked sitting on the edge of the bed.
“Sit there” I said to Jed pointing to the single chair in the ward.
He bowed before walking to the chair.
“Can you believe that anonymous assassin in New York has killed yet another couple” I said pointing to the TV.
Eric turned and gasped.
The couple picture are already been displayed.
They were shot in the head and i could tell the shooting was more than once.
“Damn! This is terrible” Eric said turning back to face me.
“Of course it is. She has been assassinating innocent people for years and the detectives are yet to do anything about” I said, feeling pity for the victims.
“I think most of the detectives flee cause i heard she kills any detective in charge of her case” Eric said.
“That’s because they’re not capable” I said.
Another news was being displayed…
“I wonder who told Dad that i got shot” I said to Eric.
“Of course, i finished speaking to him some minutes before you arrived and he was nagging seriously” I said.
“Ah! ” He sighed and rubbed his forehead.
“Who told him?” I asked.
“Its Ken” He said.
“Ah!” I sighed, Ken is also a junior colleague.
“Your dad called the office yesternight and Ken was in charge of answering the call. He said he wants to speak to you that he’s been calling your home line but you weren’t picking up, so Ken kinda spilled the beans” Eric said.
“Ken is such a…” I was about using swear words but i cut it off.
“The deed is done anyways, so how are you feeling now?” Eric asked.
“I’m good,i was expecting to be discharged this morning only for the doctor to place me on another IV fluid” I said and stared at my bandaged leg.
“Your leg?” Eric asked.
“It hurts less now” I said.
“Those criminals have all been apprehended, they’ll be charged to court soon” Eric said and i smiled.
“Katy will be here soon” He said.
Katy is also my colleague,she’s
We were at the shootout together and she was the one who rushed me to the hospital.
“Jed,go tell the doctor that the IV fluid is almost finished” Eric said to our junior colleague who stood up immediately and walked out of the ward.
I glanced at it and truly it’s almost finished.
Finally,i can get discharged.
“Darrel, Katy is coming to see you” He said making me glance up at him.
“You told me that earlier” I said.
“Uh..Yes. She’s so worried about you” He said.
“She should be” I said.
“Com’on Darrel,you know she likes you right?” He asked.
“Ugh! There you go again” I said.
“But she likes you” He said.
“She never told me she like me” I said.
“She does! Can’t you tell?” He asked.
“It’s just a slight crush which is normal for every lady that come across me. I’m handsome yunno” I said and he rolled his eyes.
“There you go again, boasting about your looks” He said and i chuckled.
“On a serious note,you know how much Katy likes you right?” He asked and i shrugged.
“I like her too” I said and he smiled.
“As a colleague” I added and he frowned.
“Com’on Darrel” He said.
I sighed. “Has she ever told you that she likes me!”
“Yes she has, she told me Darrel,she just doesn’t have the courage to tell you yet” He said.
“And is that the reason you’re trying to match make? I’ve told you it’s just a slight crush” I said.
“It isn’t” He said.
“So what do you want me to do?” I asked.
“Date her” He said and i laughed.
“In your dreams” I said.
“Do you probably have a ghost girlfriend?” He asked making me laugh harder.
“Yeah i do” I said when my laughter subsided.
“Don’t be sarcastic..I’m serious here” He said.
“Eric! Com’on,you know well that she isn’t the only lady that likes me but i don’t just want to be committed in any relationship for now” I said.
“I know but…”
“Let’s stop talking about this” I interrupted him and he sighed.
“Did you get the novel i asked you to?” I asked.
He shook his head.
I continued watching the news while he was busy with his phone…
The doctor walked in with Jed.
“Oh! The IV fluid is finished already” He said and started disconnecting it.
“So I’ll be discharged right away right?” I asked.
“No, you’ll still have to be here till tomorrow” He said.
“What!” I exclaimed.
“Yes, we’ll need to examine your leg” He said.
“But i have to resume work” i said.
“Even if we discharge you tomorrow,you’re
“You’ll need to eat now, I’ll be back to examine your leg” The doctor said and made a notation on my file before walking out.
I sighed and glanced at Eric.
“Won’t you say something?” I asked Eric.
“What do you want me to say?” He asked and i felt like knocking off his head.
The door opened again and this time it was Katy,she was holding a basket and looking more beautiful in her blue sweatshirt and white pants.
“Hi” She said cheerfully to everyone as she walked in.
Eric smiled and glanced at me.
“We’ll be leaving now Darrel” He said and stood up from the bed.
“So soon?” I asked.
“Yeah,i have some cases to look into” He said.
“Okay” I sent him a secret glare knowing he’s lying.
He smiled and then winked at me.
Ah! What a friend.
Jed bowed before walking out of the ward with Eric, leaving Kate and i.
I returned her sweet smile.
“How’re you feeling now ?” She asked and took a seat beside me on the bed.
“I’m getting better” I said.
“Okay,i hope your leg hurt less now” She said peering at my bandaged leg.
“Yeah” I said.
“When will you be discharged?” She asked.
“Tomorrow” I said.
She tucked her blonde hair behind her ears.
“I brought you some pizza rolls” She said and i smiled.
“Thanks, right timing.” I said and watched her bring out a covered plate from the basket.
She opened it and revealed the steaming pizza rolls with cheese and sauce oozing out of the seams.
My smile widened and my dry mouth started salivating.
I sat up as she shifted the plate to me.
“Looks nice” I sniffed and she smiled.
“Let’s eat it together” I said.
“Nah, i brought it for you” She said.
“I want us to eat it together, it’ll be more tasty that way,besides this isn’t the first time we’ll be eating pizza rolls together” I said.
“Fine” She smiled and we both started eating.
“Yummy” I said.
“Thanks” She grinned.
“Those criminals have been apprehended” She said.
“Yeah, Eric told me that” I said with a mouthful.
“They are bunch of fools who kept ranting,even in the cell” She said and i laughed.
“Did you watched the news?” She asked.
“News? I watched a lot of news today. Be precise” I said stuffing more pizza rolls into my mouth.
“About the assassination of a couple by the anonymous assassin in New York?” She said,her face growing serious.
“Ohh..yeah, i did.” I said.
” It was so brutal,i wonder what they are doing to it” She said.
“Exactly what i said … I wonder what the detectives are doing to it. It’s kinda getting out of hand” I said.
“The lady has been getting away with it for years,they should just do something” She said, pouring some water into the glass cup for me .
“The citizens are not safe anymore” I said and collected the glass cup of water from her.
“Of course they are not” She said.
I gulped down the water and muttered ‘thanks’.
She packed the plate and placed it back into the basket.
“Thanks Katy” I said.
“It’s fine” She smiled.
I feel so good.
“Boss told me to say hi to you, he will also come to see you soon,he has been so busy” She said.
“So tell me what happened at our quarter today” I said.
“You should trust me, I’m ready to give you the full gist” She smiled.
“Let’s go …” I said happily and we laughed.
🎆 New York…..
📖 COUPLE KILLED OVERNIGHT IN NEW YORK CITY BY THE ANONYMOUS ASSASSIN” I read from the newspaper.
I smiled and threw the paper into the fireplace.
I watched it burn slowly.
I stood up and walked back to the kitchen,washed my hands in the sink,dried it and started making coffee.
I walked to the fridge, leaving the coffee to perk.
I opened the fridge and brought out the strawberry cake Joel made.
I placed it on the kitchen counter, picked a knife and a small plate,and then cut two slices before returning the remaining cake to the fridge.
I shifted my attention to the now perky coffee.
I picked a mug and quickly rinsed it in the sink.
I turned the gas ring before pouring some coffee into the mug.
I placed the mug of coffee on the tray alongside a box of sugar cubes,a carton of cream with a plastic spoon and also the small plate of two slices of cake.
I carried it down to the dining room, sat down and started eating..
I was almost done with my lunch when Joel strolled into the dining room.
I wonder where boss and the rest are.
“Hey Mia” He smiled and sat opposite me.
“What’s up?” I asked.
“I’m a bit stressed out” He said.
“Why? Did you go on any mission?” I asked.
“Nah! I went on an errand for boss”
“Ohh…okay” I said and there was this awkward silence as he stared at me.
Well… Joel is one of our crew who kinda has a crush on me, he’s cute and i always admire his golden hair and sky blue eyes.
He’s a good cook and also the one in charge of getting informations.
We’re six in number including boss.
We all stay together in a big mansion, we’ve been here for years except Anne who recently joined us.
I’m mostly given assassination missions cause I’m more than capable to do it.
I love killing…
Taking lives has become part of me.
“Where are the others?” I asked.
“They are at the pool” Joel said.
“Ohh…do you care for some?” I asked pointing to my tray.
“Nah! I already had lunch ” He said.
“Okay” I stood up and took the tray back to the kitchen.
I washed the plate and rinsed the mug.
I put everything back in it’s place,dried my hands and walked out of the kitchen.
“Let’s go watch a movie in the living room” I said to Joel who smiled and stood up immediately.
He followed me down to the living room and sat beside me on the couch.
I picked the remote control and switched on the TV.
News came on display..
📺 COUPLE KILLED OVERNIGHT IN NEW YORK CITY BY THE ANONYMOUS ASSASSIN.
“Can they just stop talking about this already” I said and changed the channel.
Joel glanced at me..”Mia, you’ve never failed on any mission,you’re good at almost everything,i sometimes envy you” He said.
I smiled…I’ve been told this by my crew so many times.
“Joel you won’t believe they were having sex when i barged in” I said.
“Really?” He widened his eyes and we both laughed.
I have another mission tonight,I’m going to assassinate Mr Padgett,the largest shareholder of Bailott who’s known to like anything under skirt and that’s what is gonna be used against him.
He ordered a lady or should i say a prostitute from the VIP club to be with him for the night but I’m gonna get there earlier and act like the prostitute before blowing off his brain.
Boss has been paid for the job and he has given every one of us our share.
We heard the door opened and closed and we saw boss walked in with others.
He’s a huge man in his early forties,he has a scary face that was filled with scars,he’s a bit handsome and he rarely smile.
And there’s Anne beside him,she recently joined us,she’s a pretty lady with a natural pink hair,she has cute black eyes and her lips colour matches with her hair. Boss said I’ll be taking her along with me on missions so as to train her.
“Mia,go dress up. Mr Padgett is already at the hotel” Boss said in his deep scary voice.
“Okay boss” I said and smiled as i saw Carla glared at me.
Carla is one beautiful lady,who has an attractive figure that can’t be compared to mine though,she has been with boss before me and i don’t know the reason she developed hatred for me ever since then.
She’s a meteorologist,s
Robbie walked to Joel,he’s a fine young man, he’s so nice and has a gentle look but beneath that gentleness is a brutality you never know exist,he’s an IT genius,he deals with all the device and he’s capable of hacking into any system.
I stood up and bowed before boss before walking to my room.
I opened the wardrobe and pulled out my red skimpy gown,i laid it on my large bed before turning back to open my large drawer. Hundreds of wigs stared at me.
I selected a long white wig, my real hair must never be revealed.
I placed it on the bed and rushed into the bathroom.
I started applying make up after i was done putting on my dress.
I stood up from the dressing chair and wore the long white wig over my hair. I brushed it and adjusted it perfectly that one will think it was my real hair.
“Good” I muttered as i stood in front of the mirror.
My pistol is already in the car and i won’t be needing a mask.
I picked a small red purse from the shelf.
“Mr Padgett,start saying your last prayer already” I smiled and slide my feet into a stop-him-dead-i

I pulled my car to a halt in front of a white mansion.
I stared at the map on my iPod and glanced at the white mansion.
I wore a red wig over my brown golden hair, picked my mask and wore it over my face before stepping out of the car holding a pistol.
My eyes swiftly scanned the entire building and i walked towards the locked gate.
That doesn’t stop me from going in though.
I smiled and began climbing the wall with expertise, I’ve climbed bigger mansions than this!
I jumped into the balcony without making a sound.
I turned and carefully scanned the area.
I tried the door knob with my gloved hand and found it locked.
I twitched my nose and produced a skeleton key from the pocket of my ninja outfit.
I slid the key into the lock and turned it, it opened immediately and i quickly entered the house.
I met the well furnished living room empty .
➡️Mia what’s up?” Boss asked through the ear connection.
“Modus operandi (mode of operation)” I whispered back before disconnecting.
I walked into the middle of the living room and saw a narrow passage,i moved towards it.
There are three doors on the left,two on the right,and one at the end of the passage facing me.
I walked towards the one at the end of the passage and kicked it open with my boots.
I barged into the room and saw the couple disengage from their love making, staring at me in fear.
I chuckled “That’ll be the last sex you’ll both have,you can continue in heaven” I said and opened fire on my pistol.
I shot them twice each on their heads and smirked as their brains splattered across the bed’s headboard with blood covering their bedside lamp.
I hurried back to the balcony,and brought out a thick rope which is always connected beneath my boot.
I attached it down to the gate and also clipped it to the balcony edge.
I slide down using the rope as support.
My feet landed on the ground and i quickly disconnected the rope.
I wrapped it firmly in my hands and barged back to my car.
I unlocked it and looked around again.
I entered and shut the door.
I removed my wig and mask,dumped the pistol at the backseat and then glanced at my reflection in the rear view mirror,i adjusted my hair.
I picked my face cap and pulled it over my hair before turning on the ignition.
“Another mission accomplished” I muttered with a smile before speeding away into the night.
