Re: The Hole In The Wall by souloho19(m): 10:22am On Mar 28, 2018
Memories, memories and more memories. They flooded my mind getting me lost in the past.

I was in my office or to be precise Olivia's office, slumped in my chair my eyes closed as I remembered the day Andy and I had stood before the graves of Mona and Fomé respectively and bared our soul out. That had been some kind of closure but now to find out I had been monologuing with someone else's set of bones and Fomé was somewhere alive all this while. Maybe far away overseas or close by....watching. It was hard to believe....or maybe I didn't want to believe?

Mr X had made the arrangements before he had passed on in his sleep after consuming an alarming amount of cough syrup. He now lay in between the graves of his two daughters in a well secured and tended plot of land. Everything had been carried out by his loyal men the duo of Carmichael aka doctor Rasheed and Betran.

At first I tried to maintain contact with Bertrand after the initiative fiasco but he cut of contact. As for the stout doctor, his only means of contact was through hospitals with his cheeky 'delayed diagnosis' code.

His 'cover' had been blown and he left the Apapa general hospital. The last I heard he was in LUTH. I pondered if I should try and contact him. If anyone should have any answer concerning the recent strange events it was the elusive doctor. That is if he had any idea what was going on which I felt he didn't.

If Fomé had been alive why hadn't she contacted me? I felt there was something I was missing, something important. I tried to key into it but I was grasping at straws. It was 10:52pm and I didn't think I was going home. At least not now. A conscious side of my brain was waiting for the beep that would signal the picture had been printed. But first I had to receive the picture and I was yet to receive any message from Terry.

According to him he sent it hours ago but probably due to backlog and traffic the data hadn't 'landed'. I had been tempted to ask exactly how slow their server was but now five hours later I had deduced it was pitiful. Short Sam would have a field day hacking into the network I was sure. But there wasn't any need for that...not at the moment.

My phone rang invading my thoughts. It was my dad. I immediately remembered the call I was supposed to make.
"Hello dad"
"Rex how are you?"
"I'm fine sir"
"If you weren't going to call why did you now say you would?"
I rubbed my eyes tiredly. "I forgot honestly and when I remembered it was already late and I knew you'd be asleep"
"Do I sound asleep to you? Anyway Olivia said they're leaving tomorrow."
"Yes" but I was suddenly wondering if it was wise. Although the immediate threat in the form of the shadow had passed, things were still quite muddy and unsure. Maybe the best thing was for her to stay for a few more days. Apparently my dad was on the same wave length even if it was for different reasons.

"What's the rush? Emma hasn't started school yet, Olivia is on leave they're having fun here the house is lively." He paused for a second "you should come and rest for a few days you sound stressed"
"Haa..with what you've even said and what Olivia told me if I come home I won't be able to rest at all. As for them staying I like the idea no problem on my part but Olivia was actually looking forward to coming tomorrow"
"Leave that one to me. Hope you're okay I don't like the way you're sounding."
"I'm okay.....what of mum?" I asked
"She's in her shop."
"Shop?" I was surprised.
"Where else would she be by this time if not sleeping" he said exasperated that I hadn't caught on.
"And I think I'd turn in too...sleep well boy, make sure you call your mother tomorrow.
"Good night dad"

I settled back into the chair which was comfortable. I thought about visiting the doctor. I had to try and make contact with him before any exhumation could take place.
As a matter of fact I should drive to the hospital now,this very night. There was indeed a very high chance that I would see him. Once I could locate their diagnosis center or lab, he was sure to be there. That is if he was still with the hospital.
I hoped so.
I dug my pocket for my car keys thinking what route would be the fastest to get to the hospital from the office. Definitely mile two, it was definitely a long drive but at least the road should be free. I hope my badge is here and not at home, it would have come in handy for the police men bound to be in every bus stop. Unless Andy was still around, I had been holed up in my office for hours and I hadn't been disturbed. Everyone definitely had something on his/her plate. Andy in particular had been shaken up. I knew his thoughts clearly cause they crossed my mind; If Fomé was truly still alive, did it mean Mona was also alive? But then the Clip of agents shooting her would replay and I'd remember the blood coming from her mouth as I leaned over her. Believe me if I could format my memory card, I would gladly do so. There were so many memories I could do without.

I should call Andy so we'd go together....or if he's around the best way to know is if I buzz his office with the intercom. Just had to lean forward and press the three digits......


°•

When I opened my eyes it was 5:49am. I had totally conked out! 8 hours of sleep and I didn't feel particularly refreshed. I turned my neck sharply and stretched my joints and was rewarded with a cracking sound. My mouth tasted nasty and I stood up and stretched fully after which I did 46 push ups then went to the toilet in my office to use the mouthwash which thankfully Olivia had bought. This was still her office after all.

I realized suddenly I was hungry or to be fair my stomach reminded me. I saw my car key on the table and remembered what I had been about to do before my body had shut down.

I buzzed Andy and the phone rang and rang. Just when it had to be on its last ring he picked up. "Hello" he didn't sound completely awake.
"Andy, thank God you're still around...I want to go to Lagos teaching hospital and I thought you'd like to follow me...its doctor Rasheed he may be able to clear the air once and for all."
"Nice one...I'd go, we'd both go but its still too early, this is six o'clock, at least by 8 we should be on our way" he clicked off and no doubt settled back to sleep. I decided to wait till seven before ringing again but barely 15 minutes later Andy entered my office.

"Oba...morning bro, do you have toothpaste here?"
"No but there's mouth wash" I replied.
"Splendid!" He strode into the toilet and seconds later I could hear him gaggling the liquid.
When he emerged he had rinsed the remaining signs of sleep off his face.
"Okay are you ready?" He asked
"Yea...but I'm hungry..has Iya started anything in the kitchen?" Iya was our cook, and she was a splendid one she had a small self contain at the back attached to the building and the open yard was usually the kitchen with coal pots and firewood arranged in a corner.

"I doubt but let's check..if nothing is ready we'd see somewhere on the way for sure"
"Okay you're right" I picked up my keys.
"Lemme drive" Andy said and I tossed him the keys gladly. I still felt groggy and didn't really feel up for driving.
"Let's check on Bami and Tonye" I said
"I already did before I came down, they must have left sometime in the night...or morning rather"
"Okay...so now first to the kitchen then to LUTH!" I said thinking if the doctor would expect me to go trough his delayed diagnosis code. There was no way I was saying that shït.

Iya had just started cooking and if we could wait a little bit the snacks she always baked/fried every morning would soon be ready. Unless we wanted rice which would be ready in about an hour's time.

We thanked her and Andy filled two Styrofoam cups with coffee from the dispenser.
We headed to my car and I settled in the passenger seat.
"You're sure this doctor is still working at LUTH?" Andy asked as we entered the highway.
I shrugged and took a sip from my cup. "There's no harm in trying"
"Yea you're right" Andy said after a while.
The rest of the drive was in total silence, both of us lost in our different worlds which I'm sure wasn't really different.


We were almost at the hospital when Andy said "what if truly Fomé is alive....that would definitely be an awkward situation"
I stared out the window "if truly Fomé is indeed alive, then that would mean she's a cold blooded killer"
"Fomé's boobs were definitely huge but I don't think they were as huge as the clerk described" I said.
"Quite true...but you know humans and exaggeration" Andy said and I couldn't help but agree.

Although that fact didn't seem convincing enough, it still held possibility and couldn't be dismissed outrightly.
We settled into another thinking induced silence that lasted until we got to the hospital.

"Damn its huge" Andy muttered as he parked in reverse.
We got down from the car and strode into the hospital.
It seemed everyone had on a lab coat and a stethoscope round his/her neck.

"Be on the lookout for the diagnostic center" I said to Andy and we proceeded moving through corridors that seemed to interjoin and branch out at certain points. We scrutinized every sign. Eye doctor, Gynaecologist, paediatrician,...... The corridor broke out into a yard and the first thing we noticed was a sign; 'HIV/Aids 5 minutes Test!
I nudged Andy. "Not exactly what we're lookin for but its a test after all.

Inside we met an elderly man. He was frail and very lean with a cadaverous and wrinkled face. I would have thought he was a patient were it not for the trademark lab coat and stethoscope he had on.

" Good day sir...please I'm looking for the diagnostic center"
He looked us over and I noticed his eyes were indeed sharp.
"Walk across this yard, you'll see a corridor that leads to the back..there's a small building there, that's it" he described to us very sharply without so much as the slightest slur of his words.
"Thank you sir" we turned to leave but he called after us.
"Why don't you check your status...its very quick just a little prick on your index finger and a swab of blood..that's all!"
Andy and I looked at each other and smiled. I could bet my life savings my bro had been celibate since the death of his wife and me...well my eyes were single.
"We're in a hurry...but we should be able to swing by before we leave" Andy said and we hurried out of the office.

We followed his directions and soon we emerged at the back and a small bungalow not far off stood alone after a scanty car pack. There was indeed another entrance for cars, I knew that now but seriously hoped I won't need to drive here ever again.

The sign 'Diagnostic lab' was above the entrance engraved on a marble slate. We strode in and met a fat woman behind the desk. She was in a nurse uniform and chewing gum rather loudly. There was a waiting room with chairs arranged to face the television on the wall. About three people occupied the seats and were transfixed on the action images coming from the screen.

"Good morning"
"Yes can I help you?" She glanced me over.
"I'm here to see..." I trailed off, what name would he be using...probably another alias just as Dr Rasheed had been. But I knew for a fact his real name was Carmichael.

She sighed impatiently although it wasn't like she had been busy. She was also tranxfixed on the Jackie Chan movie on the screen.
"Dr Carmichael..." I said taking a chance
"There's no doctor like that here" she said dismissively.
"Look I don't know his name but he's short and he wears glasses" not to mention a rather large head I added silently.

Her eyes clicked with recognition and I was glad our gamble had paid off. The doctor was indeed working here, I was sure of it.

"Doctor Rilwan is his name...do you have an appointment?" She asked finally picking interest in us.
"No" I remembered the procedure from two years ago.
"Have you been here before then...did he run any test on you, what's your file number or what's your diagnosis?"
I took a long pause then gritted my teeth. How I had come to hate those two words. "Delayed diagnosis"

She looked at me blankly "what is that? Are you sure of what you're saying? Lemme see your hospital card"
"Errm.." I stammered.
Andy sighed "Bleep this!" He unclipled his badge from his belt and thrust it in her face."this is the card..now you cooperate and point us to the doctor's office"

She nodded at a loss for words and one of the men sitting in the waiting room craned his neck curiously.

The nurse half stood up, causing a squeaking sound from the chair as the spring stretched up.
"Take this corridor...second door on your left" she said pointing at the corridor.
"Thank you" Andy said clipping the badge back on his belt.

We followed her directions and we soon found ourselves looking at a door with the sign; 'Diagnostic Lab'

The top half of the door was made of glass. It was very blurry and thick and partially covered with the sign and almost impossible to see inside.

After a moment's hesitation I opened the door without knocking Andy followed me closely.
The lab was spacious there was just a long Formica table in the middle with different equipments on it. Test tubes, petri dishes, microscopes and several others which were foreign to me.
A young lady was at the table hunched over a microscope peering at whatever was on the small dish. I couldn't see anything.
So intense was her concentration that she didn't notice us. Even when she dragged her eyes from the microscope to jot down her findings she didn't so much as glance up.

At the extreme end of the lab stood doctor Rasheed or Carmichael if you wish.
He had his back turned to us and was washing something at the zinc. Probably glass tubes judging by the soft clang coming from the zinc.
"Christy you keep on forgetting,what of your litmus paper... Every step is important, you can't just-"
He turned drying a glass jug with a rag and his voice trailed off when he saw us.

"Rex" he sounded surprised but I noted he didn't seem unhappy.
"Doctor...." I glanced at his companion. She was watching us with interest now. "Doctor...Rilwan long time"
His sigh of relief was visible. He had obviously worried I would call his real name and spoil his identity.

"Andy its been long..." He glanced at Andy's mid section and I knew he was remembering the night he had been shot. The doctor had played a crucial role in saving Andy's life that night.

"This is Christie... a final year student. Cristie these are my old friends Rex and Andy"
She nodded politely in greeting.
"How you doing?" Andy asked. The dog!
"I'm doing fine thank you" she replied

"To what do I owe this pleasure" Dr Rilwan said pleasantly.
"Its quite important" I glanced at the Christie girl who wasn't even pretending not to listen "it concerning the delayed diagnosis of before" I said knowing he would get the code.
His eyes widened "let's go to my office"

I hadn't noticed the little partition at the end of the room. It was painted the same light blue like the rest of the room so it camouflaged perfectly.

"Christie carry on..record all your findings down to the minute detail then start the other specimen... I'm coming" the doctor said to his assistant/student. With that he led us away from his nosy student and into his wooden office. The office would have been small but the lack of furniture made it quite spacious. A table and two chairs was all the room contained.
The table was neatly arranged with files and folders containing documents. A small table clock shaped like love sat on the desk, the seconds ticking. Apart from that the table was bare.
"You guys should sit down" he gestured to the seats and Andy settled in the chair behind the desk. "Please what is it, what do you mean by what you said just now?" He asked pacing in confusion and I knew he was in the dark just as I was.
I turned the chair around and sat down.

"Something happened yesterday and Fomé's name came up"
"Fomé?" He stopped pacing, clearly baffled.
"Yes all evidence points that she is alive"
"Thàts impossible" he said but then he frowned in thought "what exactly happened that brought her name up?" He asked finally.

"There was a murder and her print was found at the scene" Andy said

The doctor was at a loss for words he kept on opening his mouth and closing it without uttering a word.

"But she's buried somewhere...I was there myself...in fact I helped lower her casket in the earth"he said finally.

"But it wasn't recognizable as Fomé?" I asked.
"The body was burnt to ash...come on"
"We need to dig the body out and run a DNA test...that's the only way to clear the doubt" I said.

He scratched his head in thought. Finally he said "I can run the tests myself in this very lab...I have everything I need. Trust me with the way Mr X was obsessed with finding his daughters before, I have their DNA samples"
"Perfect" Andy said "So tomorrow morning we can go..I'd rent a tipper so it will be an easy dig"

"Why don't we go today? There's still plenty of time and you know there's no time to waste" I said. The truth was I couldn't wait.

"I'm up to my neck with work here..the backlog keeps on accumulating and I need today to clear it" Dr Rilwan protested.

"It doesn't matter, we can handle it your part would just be to run the tests" I assured him.
He frowned in consideration.

Andy said "I remember that place is really tight...doctor ringworm hope you have the key"

"My name is Ril-waan..you've taken over from Rex with the crude jokes I can see."
He went round the table and it looked like he was going to attack Andy for a moment but he leaned across the chair and opened a drawer.

He dumped a huge bunch of keys on the table.
"You'd have to trace the key to the padlock sorry"

I whistled "what are all these keys for?"

"Different things...some I don't even know. But there's mrX house keys, that alone is like a dozen, gen house and the rest"

"So the key used to belong to Mr X?" Andy asked
The doctor nodded "yes...he gave it to me few days before he passed.

" okeydokey" I took the keys. It couldn't enter my pocket so I had to hold it.
"Wait hope you know which one is Fomé's grave?" He asked gravely.
I couldn't forget even if I tried...I had poured my soul and heart on the site two years ago.

Andy and I left the hospital with a clear goal in mind. We were literally going digging for the truth.



°•°••°•

Tonye

Tonye woke up before her husband this time around. She watched him sleep for some minutes then she checked the time on the bedside table; 6:02am.

The first thing she did was head for the shower. Then she made coffee an powered her iBook.

She was caught up in a report Cristie had compiled about a politician who was deeply suspected to be responsible for the death of a rival in a different party. Now Chistie had found out the "honourable" politician had contacted the shadow two weeks before the murder. She intended to dig into it once the current case was cleared up. Indeed this report was a can of worms.

She heard Bami's phone ring and his gruff voice as he answered. A minute later he was standing in the doorway rubbing his eyes sleepily.

"I smell coffee...morning dear"
"I made extra..what was that about, the home call?"

He sat across the table and poured a healthy portion of coffee into his mug. "That was Rex, he and Andy are going to exhume the body"

"So they're really doing this...is there no other way?" She asked.

Her husband shrugged. His eyes were clearer now that he had taken a gulp of the steaming coffee. "I'm all ears if you have any ideas.."

"How do they plan on digging it out?" She asked.

"You know what, he was vague about that..but he said they'll need gloves, face masks and protective gear, also a cooler and ice"

Tonye shrugged imagining what was going in the cooler.
"So we're to head to headquarters for these items then meet up with them. Did he give you the address?"

"Yea...he did" Bami replied.

They were silent for a while as their thoughts took over.
Finally Tonye said "I wasn't really involved with your mission two years ago but it was pretty clear to all the agents that you wanted to catch Fomé so bad..D.y- rest his soul even told me that she was the priority"

For a long while Bami was silent. Finally he looked at his wife with regret in his eyes. "I was mislead with facts...the order came from way up...the highest echelons of the agency's hierarchy...and..-" he added with self disgust. "The promise of immediate promotion made me extra dedicated in seeing it through"

"Hmmm....when you say high...just how high up the tree are you talking?"

"I mean the counselor summoned me himself"

"Wow!....you don't mean it...that's a serious case then...very serious. What did you make of it?"

He shrugged dejectedly "It wasn't until much later when I met Rex that I began to question the orders and my actions..but that time it was too late..." He shook his head sadly in the memory of the sisters death. "I surmissed the chief had really strong connections and he wanted Fomé dead so bad he used every connection he had...including the agency."

"Hmmm..." Tonye made to refill her mug but was surprised to find the jug empty. "What if it wasn't the chief but something else, or someone else and she had to fake her own death to be safe."

"I can't deny its possible....and right now plausible" Bami said.

"Then maybe the incident on the balcony in Kristen's report happened when she tracked her hunter or vice versa to the hotel"

"Its extremely possible... But maybe the fingerprint was a mistake and Fomé is indeed buried as we speak" even as he said it he knew he was in denial.

There was only one way to find out and Tonye echoed it "well its daylight already.. the only way we could shed light on this mystery is to get moving"

"Sure sure" Bami rushed his beverage and stood up.
"Hope you're going to shower first?" Tonye asked

Bami smiled guiltily "of course, that's where I'm heading...I'd be right back"

It took us exactly 22 minutes to get the right key and get the gate open. The keys had kept mixing together and we finally unhooked the ring.
The land was still as I remembered it two years ago the only difference was the addition of a weeping willow about 5 feet tall growing over Mr X's grave in the middle of his daughters.

The emotions kept rushing back and I suddenly found myself very weak. Andy was also overcome with memories and he walked to Mona's grave without a word.

I approached the grave..I couldn't think of it as Fome's grave anymore, at least not until the doubt was cleared. To think I had spent hours talking and talking and it wasn't even Fome's body under the earth!

I placed my hand gently on the tombstone and shut the thoughts out of my mind as I waited for Bami and Tonye.

Souloho19 Thanks for the mention,

But really you got me yawning for more and more, the suspense is silently killing.

More ink to your pen bro.. I am watching to see where this leads because right now I'm short of imagination.
