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.

(Brian , why do this for Nancy? )
I narrated what I remembered to Anthony and everything went blank again. The expression on his face was filled with curiosity. I can see that he’s confused too.
Maybe I should not have said it , but I really didn’t have any choice, I’m sure of what I remembered and I can’t just help but tell him
Everywhere was quiet for a while, I’ve forgotten that we are still mourning the loss of eye of Bobby. I hope I didn’t spoil the atmosphere with my remembrance. What if what I said is arrant nonsense cus the way Anthony is looking at me, it’s Like I said rubbish
“Brother, I will not like you to believe what she just said , maybe she is just remembering images” Brian said and I turned at Brian sadly
“Oh! But what she said is true, I had that same past with Donna” Anthony said with a confused look
“I believe she is not Donna, the Donna we know is dead. She is only trying to play you brother” Scot said
“True, Anthony, like you always say, we can’t just trust anyone, we can’t forget the fact that she is a baby sitter and a stranger too who later become our friends, as much as I like Nancy, don’t be foolish to think that I trust her 100%.
So forget what she just said, no one ever survives a plane crash, she is staying in this house , so for all I know, she might have stumbled across something giving her this memories ” Brian said and I almost feel like crying
Why is Brian talking like this? It saddens me that Scot and Brian are trying everything possible to stop Anthony from believing I’m Donna
Yes I’m not Donna cus I’ve never remembered myself surviving a plane crash that is if it is possible to survive a plane crash. But why do I keep having this memories that keep dropping into my mind like rains
“It’s not just about what she said just now, she has the brown dot on her nose too, not only that, she cries and sings in the exact same way as Donna” Anthony said
“Anthony, few minutes ago, you were insulting me that I’m not smart, I can’t believe you are the one considering Nancy as Donna. You did not even like her and by the ways she is just trying to seduce us like you said.
Even though I’m not in support of us sacking her , I think we should be very careful of her plot, she is cuny ” Brian said and I just can’t believe my ears
Why is Brian talking this way? What is he trying to achieve by supporting what he was once against
“Anthony, I did not have much strength to talk cus of the horrible thing that happened to Bob, this girl here called Nancy needs to be sacked for real, I did not know where she is getting the memories from , but somebody close to you must have being betraying you and telling her ” Scot said
“Guys, I know what I’m doing, the two memories she narrated recently are memories of Donna and I alone, it’s impossible for any guy to know not even you guys ” Anthony said
“Anthony, be smart, ladies are very deceptive, don’t believe her. The Donna we know is dead.
Come to think of it , Donna’s face is different and have a brown dot on her nose .
If this girl called Nancy claimed to be Donna and maybe try to connive a lie that she got burnt and did a facial surgery, if her face was changed into another face , tell me why the brown dot will still be on her face” Brian said and I reasoned with it too
True, I can’t be Donna. I’m probably remembering and saying rubbish
“She might be Donna , I may not have prove but I guess she is Donna” Anthony said almost getting convinced that I’m Donna
“This is so bad right now, I can’t believe Anthony is almost getting confused already. Alright, let me stun you” Brian said and turned at me
Every eyes was on Brian
“Where is your phone ” Brian asked
“Inside my room” I replied
“Go and bring it” Brian said and I stood, went inside the room, took the phone and came back to hand it over to him
Brian clicked on whatever on the phone cus I can’t see what he is searching for
He handed the phone over to Anthony
“Watch those videos and see what I’m talking about” Brian requested
Anthony collected it and watch a number of videos and angrily threw the phone to the floor
“You daughter of a b*tch, so you tricking me” Anthony said angrily and yelled as he walks closer to me
I shook fretfully and I looked into Williams eye for help, but he just sat still without moving
“Where in the world did you see all those videos of Donna and I” Anthony asked with a beast-ful look
“Which video sir?” I asked innocently not having an idea of what he is talking about
Anthony angrily ran to the dinning table and opened a refrigerator that is there , he brought out a champaign and walked closer to me like he will smash the bottle on my neck
I stared at everyone’s eye for help but no one stood for me nor caution Anthony
Is he about to kill me now? What if he smash the bottle on my head, I may die. Omg!
“Williams” I called as Anthony approached me with the bottle
“None of you should come to her aid or I will be force to do something crazy to you all” Anthony threatened and opened the bottle
“Just when I was almost getting convinced that you are Donna, only for me to find out that you have saved videos of my memories with Donna on your phone, so you are a player for real” Anthony said and smirked
That was when I noticed that Brian has shown Anthony the videos of Anthony and a lady that Helen and I smuggled from Karen’s phone
How do I tell him that I got it from Karen’s phone . I dare not, Not even now that he’s angry
I watched as Anthony opened the bottle forcefully and poured the liquid substance on my face
The drink soaked my air and flow down my hair to my face and to my necks and other part of my body
“You ugly duckling, I said it, you are a prostitute. Yes! I may not be able to sack you but I can punish you, leave this house right now , it’s late already, I don’t care where you spend the night, go and sleep in the street or something , and you must not go to Williams house to sleep cus I’m calling someone now to guard his place from you.
You can come back here tomorrow morning, but for this night, sleep outside . That will be your first punishment for trying to play and trick a whole me, the popular flower boy, you must have gone crazy. Now get out” He yelled and I stood up
I kept looking at Brian and Williams and wondering they didn’t even make a move of helping me
“I can’t sleep in the street, please have mercy” I pleaded with tears pouring from my eyes
“I say get …Get out” He yelled and paused then yelled again
His loud voice made me shook and increase the fear inside of me , I ran outside the house.
I turned when I get to the compound of the house and I saw Anthony again come out of the house
“I say get out and leave this house , go and spend a night in the street you prostitute” Anthony said and walked towards me like a beast ready to devour me
I ran away cus I was no longer seeing Anthony this time around but a beast
I cried so hard as I get outside the house.
Why did Helen had to lure me into getting that video from Karen’s phone?
Why did Brian had to speak against me?
Why is Williams not doing anything to help me?
Am I bad for real?
I kept thinking and I kept walking towards the street. It’s a neat estate , There is just no where that I can sit recklessly, I will be challenged
I walk tiredly and finally get out of the estate , I kept walking aimlessly, then the rain started falling
I started running very hard trying to find safety cus I’m allergic to rain, I hardly breath inside the rain.
I saw a beautiful shed and I ran towards there. I’d entered before I realized that the boys there were gangsters who were busy smoking
“Sexy motherfucker ” One of them said and rubbed his private part like he is scratching it and walk closer to me
I shift back fretfully and I turned to run out of the shed and find another safety for myself but another muscular man who was putting on just a singlet and a boxer approach me from the back
Before I could understand what was happening , four men had surrounded me and the smoke from them is irritating me
I’m scared of what they may do to me
“Please don’t touch me please ” I pleaded
One of them stretched his hand towards my breast but someone grabbed it
“Leave her, she is mine” One of them said and walked closer to me.
The others respected the guy and left
The guy covered me with a sweat shirt and stood before me.
I couldn’t look at his face cus I was too scared too.
I hope he is not up to something too
“Look up” He said and I looked up
That was when I saw clearly who he is
“Omg! It’s you” I exclaimed happily
Guess who the person Nancy saw is

( Fate of Bob 😢 )
I rushed towards Brian and pushed him slightly away from Nancy
“Brian, what’s wrong with you? Has this girl finally seduced you? This is exactly what I’m talking about. She is good at seducing people, be smart ” I said to Brian
“Sorry! Anthony, you need to know that it’s my choice and I’m absolutely responsible for my choice . I like Nancy and I won’t mind given her , her first kiss. It doesn’t matter what you call her , stop trying to interfere into our relationship please ” Brian said and I smirked
Never! I can’t stand and watch Brian kiss Nancy. I did not like her but I still feel jealous
I abruptly held Nancy in her wrist and led her to my room
I made her sit and I sat closer to her
“Young girl, what have you done to my brother? Why is he lusting after you?” I asked
“I’m sorry” She said softly
“Sorry! Sorry for what ? I’m asking a simple question here. What have you done to Brian?” I asked
“I did nothing Sir” She replied
“You obviously did something , you liked him right?” I asked
“Yes I do” She replied and I kept mute for a while cus I was more than jealous
She likes Brian for real, anyways, who cares.
Nevertheless, I still didn’t know what to say
The silence between us was getting horrible
“Hey, I want you to drop any feelings you have for Brian, he is not your type” I warned
“I’m not having feelings for him, I just like him like a friend” She replied
“Like a friend? Yet you hug? Like a friend? And he almost give you your first kiss, listen to me carefully, stay away from Brian” I warned again
“Why Sir?” She questioned
“Who are you to question me, In fact, it’s an order now, stay away from Brian, you will soon leave this house anyways ” I said and she kept her head lowered without saying any word
“You can leave” I commanded and she stood and left.
That reminds me, I need to discuss an issue with Brian and Scot.
I stepped down to meet Brian
I saw him sitting and I sat at a chair opposite him
“We got an invitation recently to sing at B.A.A Best awarding artiste. ” I said
“And did you think we should go? We went there last year and sang too and they didn’t give us any award. Why should they keep inviting us when they know that we did not deserve any award” Brian said
“I think their has always being partiality, the coordinators are big men and according to rumours, artiste actually pay huge sum of money to be awarded” I replied
“They are not worthy of trust then, anyways, it’s always fun, so what’s the plan ?” Brian asked
“Bob is suppose to be the one handling this but their ambassador said he has being trying to reach Bob recently but he can’t. So I suggest we make the plan ourselves” I said
“Okay, what are the necessary information?” Brian asked
“Where is Scot? ” I asked
“He will join us soon” Brian replied “just go ahead , I’ll relay all what we discuss to him” Brian said
“Alright. We are getting on stage by 2:am to 2:30 am. We are to sing our first debut and if the judges are impressed , we might take the lead in the show” I explained
“That shouldn’t be a problem, we will put in our best, but I have a suggestion, let’s bring Nancy to join us on stage and sing the same song , her feminine voice might help us take lead ” Brian said
“True, cus those that take lead in previous years has always being both gender, just that I don’t feel comfortable around that poor girl” I said
“Let’s manage her , I’ll employ someone to start working on her skin so she can look gorgeous and perfect for the show that day. I’ll teach her all necessary things she needs to know too” Brian said and I watched without giving a reply
I adjusted on the chair thinking and feeling damn jealous of how Brian and Nancy are getting closer this days, nevertheless, I can’t express my feelings, not as if I like her anyways. She is just a prostitute trying to seduce me and it will never work cus Donna owns my heart. She may be dead but her Love remains in me forever
“We have another issue” I said
“Tell me” Brian requested
“Many record labels are coming around, universe record label is coming too, and you know that the owner is the father of Karen and I’m sure they will do everything possible to take a lead in the show” I said
“We do not need to mind that. Let’s just put in our best. I’m sure Karen herself will be among the artiste representing her dad’s record label at the stage that day
” certainly ” I said and exhaled
I heard some steps of people entered the room. I turned and I saw Scot, Bob and one other man
I was puzzled wondering where they were coming from . Brian stood up nervously to meet them
“I’m happy ya’all escaped” Brian said but pressed his eye on bob’s face
I stood up also in a bit to satisfy my curiosity
I noticed that it seems Bob is blind
“What happened to Bob in the eyes?” Brian asked while Scot and Williams maintained a very sad look
They didn’t reply, instead they helped Bob to sit
Everyone sat including me
“What happened over there? How did Bob get blind?” Brian asked
“After you left, the assassins became many than we expected, they filled every room. Williams and Bob were disguised as assassin already but they were not standing together so that the others will not be suspicious.
I had disguised as one of the assassin too, nobody knows who but everyone recognizes Bob, remember he use to be a very close pal of Romeo, so he is well respected and known.
He was fished out and brought inside the compound of the house. The assassins including us surrounded Bob
After a while, the leader himself came . He was dressing like a Mexican priest with a Mexican hat on his head . He called Bob a betrayal and decides to teach him a lesson
He said he has a tracker on Bob and that he is tracing his movement and a mic in the corner of his teeth that makes him listen to whatever Bob said
He said he heard all that Bob said to someone about working for him cus he is forced and how he will liase with the person to bring him down
He claimed that none of the assassin can ever be smarter than he is . He then ordered for one of the assassin to bring in a knife and some hot coal tar
The knife was placed inside the hot coal tar till it became red. And right before our eyes , Bob’s two eye were removed
We dare not do anything foolish at that moment cus we might suffer the same fate and ruin everything
He warned all other assassins to be careful and not even think of betraying him cus they will definitely suffer the same fate
He then ordered that Bob be thrown outside the house since he is useless. And he walked inside.
After the assassins had dispersed and everything is settled, we flew the fence over and saw Bob staggering around blindly and that was how we helped him home” Scot said and Brian quickly went to sit behind Bob
“Bob” Brian called almost crying
I did not have the full idea of what is going on, nevertheless, I know now that Bob eye was removed by an evil man
Sadness engulfed us all like cloud as we all watch our manager blind. He has being our manager for many years and now he’s blind
Brian lowered his head sadly. Scot’s eye was red while I was not showing any expression , I just feel so sad for Bob
“Scot, call Nancy” Brian ordered and Scot stood to call Nancy in her room
She came around and hugged the only man I can’t recognize there
Who could that man be to her? Nancy noticed that everyone was sad and she looked at Brian for an explanation
Brian explained all that happened to Bob and how he became blind
Nancy went closer to Bob and held him by his trouser , she cried so hard and sniffed
Tears rolled from my eyes as I saw Nancy crying cus she cries in the exact same way Donna cries
If she is mastering everything about Donna, she can’t master the way she cry of course, maybe Donna is a twin cus this is just too much
Nancy stopped crying suddenly and placed her right hand on her forehead
She turned at me and was staring at my face. I wondered why?
“We were together at the cinema one day watching Acrimony to be precise , you told me to kiss you during the middle of our conversation but I refused and pecked you instead. You brought out a pink flower with beautiful petals and handed it over to me, I collected it and sniffed it in , then I use it to rub you on your nose. I didn’t know that you are allergic to smell from flowers cus you started coughing cus you feel irritated” Nancy said

( Stand and watch him give Donna her first kiss)
They approached us handcuffed all of us and dragged us into a very dark room, we were smuggled into the very dark and tiny place.
We can hardly breathe nor see
After which they closed the dark cell on us and left.
We all kept quiet while trying to find a comfortable sitting position.
“What are we gonna do now?” I asked
“Just relax” Scot said and I wondered why he said that
“I think it’s the leader of those assassin that keep us here” I said
“Nancy, please keep quiet” Brian said and I kept mute
I watched as Brian stood and began to loosen the handcuff of everyone including mine
“How did you do that?” I asked curiously
“We have a spy here , he smuggled the key into my hand while they were all pushing us here . We can’t be so foolish to come into the enemy’s territory without having an ambassador there” Brian said and I reasoned with him.
After he had loosen us all, he sat down back
“Now guys, we have to be very smart so we can get out of here safely. Firstly, who knows the name of this enemy?” Brian asked
“His name is Romeo, I know him very well” Bob replied
“Good, I guess you have some information’s that might be of help in taking him down ” Brian said
“Just ask me anything” Bob said
“I’m wondering why this man kept us all here instead of killing us” Williams said
“He knows it will be impossible for us to leave , now guys, be smart ” Brian said and opened the door of the husky cell.
He opened the cell and peeped out, he brought his head back
“There is light everywhere , I still have my knives with me so we should be able to take them down easily ” Brian said
“Bob, you go with williams. Go towards the left and take down two of the assassins silently. Don’t walk hand in hand. Let someone focus to the front while another focus to the back.
Give yourself a distance, after taking two assassins down. Disguise as their assassin and keep patrolling around.
Don’t shoot, don’t do anything, just keep pretending like you are one of them until I send you order ” Bran said and Williams and Bob nodded
He opened the door and Williams and Bob crawled out
“Guys, this is a very dangerous task, I do not want to loose anyone, so we need to be extremely smart” Brian said and brought out a knive from his hair. He handed over the knife over to me.
He pulled off his cloth and turned his back at me.
“Use that knife to pierce me at the back” He said
“What! Am I crazy? Why will I Peirce you?” I asked
“Nancy, I do not have time, do that quick” He said with a serious tone
What kind of stuff is this
I dropped the knife
“I’m sorry , I can’t” I said and Scot took the knife from the floor and pierced Brian’s back with it. Blood was rolling down and I feel like fainting at the sight of the blood
I just didn’t get why Brian will tell anyone to pierce his beautiful back
“Done” Scot said
“Lay her down and rub her mouth with the blood ” Brian said
“What!”I exclaimed not having an understanding of what was going on
Scot pushed me down gently and made me lay on the bare floor, he rubbed his hand on the blood streaming from Bran’s back and rubbed it on my mouth
My mouth was designed with blood and my neck was stained with blood too
Brian wore back his cloth and turned to me
Won’t that back be hurting him? I’m really scared of how he will be feeling right now cus he has not treated the wound
” Nancy, this is not the time for joke, whatever we are doing here has a reason, so just do all what I want you to do” Brian said sternly and I nodded
“Good. You gonna go outside now and take just six steps , then u will fall and pretend like someone that died, is that understood?” He asked and I nodded
“Don’t ever open your eyes , no matter what anyone tries to do with you” He said and I nodded
He took his knife and tore some part of my clothes , my clothes now looks like rag
“Go Nancy” Brian commanded and I nodded
I was scared to the gut and opened the door of the cell we are
I turned my head at them abruptly
“Am I to go left or right?” I asked
“Right” Brian replied and I walked out
I took six steps and I saw three men with heavy guns patrolling around
They saw me as I took the six steps, before they stared wondering what was happening, I’d fallen.
I heard steps coming closer to me then I heard sounds of pain and everywhere was silent again
It seems some body were beside me and one even lay his head on my leg.
It seems somebody took them down
I think I will have to disobey Brian, I need to know what is going on.
I opened my eye and I saw three men fallen with knives stuck to their bodies
That was when it dawn on me that Brian killed them when they approached me
I closed my eye and still pretended like someone that faints
“Something is wrong, blow the whistle now” I heard a man say. Then I heard a loud whistle
“We are doomed today, all of them will come for us now” I lay on the floor and maintained a closed eye
I started hearing gun shots , My heart was beating very fast but I wasn’t moving, anyone would have thought that I had died considering the fact that I’m on the floor with three dead bodies and blood in my mouth
“She is dead” I heard a man say and i heard few steps walk beside me
“None of them are in the cell, how did they manage to get out” One of the men said
Then I heard the sound of two men fell. A leg walked closer to me and pulled me up. I forgot Brian’s rule instantly and opened my eye
Oh! Thank goodness, it’s brian
“Time to leave ” Brian said and held me by my wrist, we ran like we were being chased through the same hall way
“We can’t step down, we will need to jump this place over , there are hundreds of them downstairs, now jump” He said and my heart beat faster than a working machine
My mouth dropped and I imagined how I will jump over
“You can do it” Brian said and I heard gun shot behind us
Jeez! They are almost catching up on us. I forgot about my capacity to jump and Jumped over
Wao! I can’t believe I jump over. But I fell to the floor.
Brian had jumped over too. He led me towards a rough road. We chattered a random cab and it drove us home
We finally arrived home. Brian and I walked inside and sat tiredly
Brian kept exhaling
“That was so close” I said looking directly into his face
But he was breathing heavily instead , he didn’t reply me
“Are we safe here ?” I asked
“Yes dear, this is our territory, they now know who we are, they dare not charge at us abruptly again, they are probably thinking that we work for King cus all the tactics we use are those I learnt when I was working with King” He said and brought out his phone
He put a call through to someone
“Brian, where are the rest? ” I asked
“Scot will handle it, don’t worry, you are their primary target, they will spend more energy looking for you than the rest, so making you escape is the first and basic thing we need to do” Brian said to me
☎ Hello Anthony” Brian said into the phone
The phone is on loud speaker so I heard the conversation
☎ Brother, how have you being?” Anthony asked
☎ Not fine, I’m totally destabilised , Nancy had being kidnapped ” He said
☎ It’s none of my business. ” Anthony said
☎ Oh sorry, just feel like telling you” Brian said and hung up
I feel bad cus of what Anthony said on phone, so he doesn’t really care if I’m kidnapped or not
Brian’s phone buzzed and he picked it up
☎ Who kidnapped her? What has she done? When was she kidnapped?” Anthony asked
☎ Thought you said it’s none of your business, bye” Brian said and hung up
I’m happy right now, he called back to ask of me.
Mhen! I’m blushing
Brian’s phone buzzed again and he picked it
☎ I’m sorry Brian, but my heart is kinda heavy, how do we help her , when was she kidnapped?” Anthony asked
☎ Where are you?” Brian asked
☎ At the hotel, still on look out for a good accommodation” Anthony replied
☎ Why did you leave ?” Brian asked
☎ I dislike to see that poor girl called Nancy” Anthony said and I feel bad again
☎ Why do you care about her then? I hope you know I’m deeply in Love with her, I think it’s good that you stay far away from her , I will be able to have all the time with her, thanks for your decision” Brian said
Anthony kept mute for a while after which he spoke
☎Are you home?” Anthony asked
☎ yes I am ” Brian replied and Anthony hung up
“You didn’t even answer his primary question and why did you have to tell him that I’m kidnapped” I requested
“My brother Loves you so much, he left cus he didn’t want quarrel between us, he knows I love you too but I miss Anthony.
I need to make him feel jealous so he can come back home . it’s his father’s house, why will he leave and we stay.
Secondly, the flower boys are to stay under the same roof according to the record label deal but he is disobeying that already.
It seems he cares for you but he doesn’t wanna accept it” Brian said and I sighed
After thirty minute, Antony walked in and was stunned to see me
“Thought you said she is kidnapped?” Anthony asked
“I did that so you can come, Anthony , please stay here with us, we need you, I know you want Nancy sacked in this house cus you thought she is the cause of the misunderstandin
Though I can’t sacrifice her for you cus I like her too and we will definitely date either you like it or not, but since you dislike her , why do you have problem with the two of us being so close?” Brian asked gently
“I’m not here for silly talks, It’s your choice . Donna is the one I Love and there is nothing anyone can do to that” Anthony said and walk closer to Brian
“Let me tell you something Brian, this Nancy standing here is a devil, don’t you see how ugly she is, she is trying to seduce us , now we are almost at the edge of having a misunderstandin
If you Love yourself and you value our relationship, you will know that this Nancy is just a prostitute and a a devil too, let’s cooperate and speak to my mum to get her sacked.
Everything has being peaceful before she comes, as soon as she comes, everything starts taking a rough shape, think Brian” Anthony said and I just feel like dying
Me! Prostitute. Me! Devil. Me! Causing misunderstandin
Tears formed at the corner of my eye and I stared at Anthony’s handsome face
Why in the world did I have to fall in Love with Anthony? Why did I Love him so much? Even after this insult that made me feel worthless and feel like dying, I still feel like grabbing his cute body and hugging him so tight
Brian sighed and bowed
I watched aBrian and fear engulf me . Fear of the fact that Brian might begin to dislike me cus of what Anthony said and probably cooperate with Anthony to sack me as a baby sitter
“You called Nancy a devil and a prostitute, you called her poor and the cause of the misunderstandin
He pulled my rough body closer and made me lean on him.
“Anthony, this girl had never kiss and yet you call her a prostitute, now watch me give her , her first kiss” Brian said and brought his face closer to me
Did you think Anthony will stand and watch Brian kiss Nancy?
