Continued ...The brand of X.
9....



Benedict woke up and saw the I.v bag empty, his blood sipped out into the capillary tube.

He pulled off the pin, slipped off from under Benny's head and arm; crawled out of the bed. She had dosed off after they did 'it'.

He flung his jacket on his shoulders. He made sure to wear his inner vest before the former.

He felt relieved off pains, but he barely walked, he managed to slide into a new pair of sandals.

He walked towards the door. Then came back to take Charlie's mobile. He had changed the sim card.

He kissed his girlfriend on her forehead. He did it as if it would be his last; Benny turned on the bed, but did not wake up.


As he left through the corridor, a figure appeared from where he had been to block his path.

He was the hefty guy from the Mercedes.

' What's the meaning of this? Ben asked the dark skinned guy.

' Brother #12' the man said ' I have orders not to allow you leave'

' Whose order? Get out of my way'

The man drew his gun. He pushed Ben back.

'The B4 say make you relax and get better..'

' Wait' Ben interrupted ' since when did you guys turn into an organisation? We are not a terrorist group now , are we?

Benedict tried to understand how the gang had evolved from petty thieves with influence to a new version of political antagonists. Just in a space of five days.

' Yemi ' he called the man by his name.

' Its B15 . Have you forgotten ? ' The man corrected. ' Please you have to step back into the room'

They argued and struggled verbally until Dr Raymond came around. He was there to do routine check up.

He intercepted their quarrel and discouraged Benedict from undergoing his mission.

' You are not even sure your uncle did it' Raymond said and flexed his muscles involuntarily.

He must have been a ring boxer. Ben thought and tried to plot his excuse.

' He has every reason to' Ben said' he set my parents ablaze in their room and...'

' And he sent assassins after you . ' Dr Raymond said and tried to be logical' is that it?.. Or you have something else against him? Get well first, before you think of revenge'

Ben was silent.

He tried to move past the men but met resistance.

He quickly snatched the gun from Yemi before anyone could blink; Yemi was confused and stepped backward; Ben focused at him; the doctor made a move; Ben turned the pistol swiftly; Ray backed off.

' I'm getting out of here and no one will stop me'






Benedict and Yemi came into the compound from the back. They parted the barbed wire with a thick piece of clothing, supported by a plastic on each side.

The skies were blank; the moon was waking from slumber and the sun had already set , three hours ago.

They pushed the back door and found it open. Strange . Ben thought.

The lights were off.






Benedict stood above his uncle's dead body.

He watched as the man's blood wash the white cold tiles.

The devil finally died, good for evryone.

Ben had no remorse until his eyes darted to his uncle's wife and children, they had been massacred ;their mouths tied ; their genitals cut off and their remains were kept to swim in their own blood.


' Sh*t ' Yemi said and lowered his gun; he wanted to throw up; the scene was grotesque in all ramifications.

' This must be the hand work of Badoos' Yemi finally said.

' And I'm not sorry for him' Ben said and pointed his gun to Osas.

He held the trigger; Yemi grasped his arm; Ben pushed him off; Yemi launched again and successfully grabbed the gun.

' He is dead already'

' Don't waste the bullet' Yemi continued ' you will only risk our cover'

Ben sniffed, he was angry at himself for not being the one to send the devil back to his abode; below the earth.
Somehow, he was grateful to whoever did it.

Yemi dragged Benedict along.

' Let's get out of here. This area donn cast. I dae feel say no be only us dae here'

Benedict reluctantly followed the brother #15 and they exited the same way they came.

Benedict climbed the fence after Yemi , only to realise that the police had invaded the compound , he heard sirens, the front gate made sounds and then a loud bang followed seconds later as a door fell down.

It must have been the main entrance. Damn it! He cursed and hurriedly hacked himself up; Yemi held out to him; Ben grabbed his arm; Yemi pulled.


' Don't move or I'll shoot' A police officer said as he ran out.

Too late for him, the Kvng Nazi's had jumped over the fence.

They ran to their escape medium, a Mercedes.

#####

In a building across the streets. At a far range, two Kvng Nazis watched from a window.

One of them had a slender physique. He had a binoculars with him;
The other man had a sniper gun and was on the phone, he had been on a call.

' The police just arrived ' he said to the man on the other end'

' No. Someone else got here before us' he continued' Brother #12 and #15 are running to their car, right now'

He paused and heaved a sigh, the man had given him an order.

' Yes I have a clean shot....okay'

He dropped the phone and engaged the sniper gun.
**__

Ben and Yemi had entered the car; Yemi ignited the engine, but it wouldn't start. It had been tampered with.
**__

' What did the brother #4 say? The slender guy asked.

The shooter kept mute ;cocked the gun ; aimed fearlessly and locked unto his target; Ben's forehead.
