It was too much for him to bear but resorting to suicide was a total bad idea

EPISODE 11

MARY TURN AWAY HER FACE when he caught glance of Jacob staring at her... She adjusted herself on the seat chair as Jacob drove into the police station.....
Manny was right in describing Jacob, she was dangerously handsome... He has the looks that could drive any woman crazy.. A perfect playboy..
She scoffs when they exchanged glance, she can't believe she was here sitting alone in a car with hum.. His car.
"I thought you didn't have a car? She ask waving away all the unimaginable thought...
Jacob chulkled, he march the brakes and quickly stop the engine.... "I dont"
"Then who owns this? Mary ask curiously
"It belongs to my friend. "He said facing her...... "When you called, you sound agitated, i knew you were in a hurry to come here so i had to borrow this.....
"I wasn't really in a hurry"Mary cut in..
Jacob widen his eyes at her...
"Okay fine, i admit i sounded that way but...... You of people should understand.... "
"I do.. I understand perfectly well.... "
His expression force a smile on her face... A part of her tells her getting involved with Jacob might stir up things, things she doesn't want to think about....
"So are we going to come down?Jacob ask
Mary gritted tinged with a fake smile on her face.. She must be so dumb to forget they have actually arrived here, at the police station... She scan her eyes around, the Nigeria flag pointly standing tall at the centre of the station...
She was feeling nervous, if Sharon has pick her calls when she called her, she wouldn't have to be nervous like this, not in front of a play boy....
She took a deep breathe when she caught sight of him staring at her.. He was gorgeous.... Manly.. The type any girl in her position will fall for.. But she wasn't ready for that, she has suffered a heartbreak... Francis hurt her feelings,she still loves him and she doesn't know why and that annoys her very much..
Without a second thought, she opened the car door and came down...
"So have you been to the station before..? She ask curiously the moment Jacob came down distracting the thoughts of Francis from her head
"Yes.... Is a day i will never forget"
Wohh, when was that....? Mary ask curiously
"Secondary school, i got into a fight with a teacher.... "
"Oh no... Don't tell me you were that stubborn in your secondary school days....? She ask jokingly...
They both burst into laughter......
"Trust me, i saw hell that day"...
Mary continue laughing until they walked into the station...
She quivered when she saw two guys handcuffed, they sat the boys on the floor on the other side of the counter.....
"She sigh and regain her confidence when she realise she wasn't a criminal but she felt pity for the boys.....
"Oga we nor do anything o, com release us comot from here o"One of the handcuffed boys blared out
"Shut up.... "The policeman at the counter raved at him
Mary exhales shapily, she foldher hands across her chest, she stare at Jacob who reciprocated the look... Mary wonder if Jacob was as nervous as she was...
Earlier she was determined to come here, now she was here, she was on total bewilderment on where to begin from...
"Good afternoon officer.. "They both greeted
"Good afternoon... What can i do for you"The policeman said...
Mary sigh wondering why there was only one policeman at the counter
"We came here to report a missing person"Jacob said
"Who is missing, a child or an adult...? The policeman ask with bugged eyes, he thought they were actually to report someone they want to arrest so he can have a little money....
"She is....
"She is an adult... "Mary cut in..
She suck her teeth when she caught sight of Jacob gazing at her.. Then she realise she concluded too quick...she would have let him finish...
"She is around my age"She added
"Oga i dey tell you o, com comot me from here o, i nor get family wen wan com bail me o"The other boy ln handcuffed blared out
"You deu craze.. You go die for here"The policeman retorted..... "Nonsense,talk again weda i nor go shoot you, na me say mak you go thief.... "He raved before he shift his gaze to Jacob and Mary
"I nor thief o, na fight i fight o... "The boy said back grumbling...
"Ok... We don turn mate abi, i dey talk you dey talk, infact your bail don increase, if your people nor show today, na prison u go die put, foolish boy"The policeman hollered....
"Ehen, wetin ona be dey talk... "He said turning his gaze at them again...
Mary grunts.... "I said she is around my age.... "
She hopes and prays the policeman cooperate with them and find Manny..
"How long have she be missing..? The policeman ask
"Three days"Mary replied shapily
"Where last was she seen? He ask
"At home....
"With us"she added
"Who saw her last?The policeman ask
"officer what's the difference between your last question and this one"Jacob blared out irritated....
"If you want me to help you, i need to know everything about this girl.... "The policeman said back...
"besides us, i don't know who saw her last... "Mary reply with clenched teeth
"Uhmmm"The policeman murmur..... He brought out a notebook and a pen.... "What is her name...?
"Her name is Manny....
"No last name...? The policeman ask
"Manny Okrakro"Mary said with a deep grunt
"What does she do for a living ?The policeman ask...
Mary thought of what to say, Manny has no job.. "Nothing currently.. "
"Did you see what she left with, maybe a taxi or someone carried her in a car?
"She left in her car"Mary said
"She own a car? The policeman ask shapily
"Yes... She has a car... "
"How can a young girl that has no job own a car? The policeman blared out
Mary drop her folded hands, the questions were beginning to irritate her....
"Officer i really see no need of asking this questions, we came to report a missing person... "Jacob interjects
The policeman eyed him... "So what am i doing,cant you see am following the procedures of finding your friend."
"You are asking questions you shouldn't be asking.. What's your business if she owns a car..... "Jacob snarled....
"I can see you want to teach me my job"
Jacob exhales, this is the major reason he hates policemen, they are so obnoxious... "Officer am not teaching you your job,am just....
"You are just what?the policeman cut in..... "Look its mandatory every information about this girl is disclosed to us.. What kind of job does she do to own a car..?. Simple questions... "The policeman said with a shrug shoulder
"Officer, someone bought the car for her"Mary said furiously...
"Who...?
"Her boyfriend bought her the car.. "Mary said impetuously...
The policeman drool his eyes.... "Her boyfriend.. What kind of work does her boyfriend do?
"Look officer, i think you are taking this too far, what's your problem, we only came to report she is missing, why are you interrogating us..... "Jacob retorted
"This is not interrogation o, this is very far from interrogation... You said she is missing, to find a missing person, i need a full detail of her life... The people she talk to and associates with.... "
"Haven't we giving you enough detail, what more detail do you want"Jacob snarled...
"Do you realise you are talking to a police officer...?
"Oh please damn that bullshit, we just came here to solicit your help but it seems you are not ready, perhaps we should see another officer who knows the job...
"Ok... You are now authorizing a federal police officer of the law.. That is an assault on my cogsiment as an officer.. "
"I need another officer here please.. "Jacob shouted not minding his ranting
"What is going on here.... "A voice interrupted them from behind....
They turn to the direction of the voice...
The policeman quickly saluted with a chest out
"What's going on here..? The man ask again..
"Emmm sir, this people...... "The police man stammered...
Jacob focus his gaze on the man who he thought to be of higher rank than the annoying policeman they have been talking to.
"I will tell you sir"Jacob said
He glance at Mary who prompt him to continue...
"Sir we actually came here to report a missing person but the officer here isn't interested in listening to our complaint, instead he started asking us unnecessary questions.. "
The turn to the police officer... "Apollo, is that true?
The policeman quiver.... "Sir i just wanted to know a full detail about the missing person.... "
The man shook his head, then he shift his gaze to Jacob.... "Follow me, lets talk in my office... "
Jacob glance at Mary who nodded
Without further ado they followed the man to his office...
Jacob scan his eyes around as they entered the man's office.. He immediately find out the man must be the DPO, he have his picture hung on the wall, he was elegantly dressed in his uniform... Followed by the president's picture and governor...
The DPO.. Mr Alfred motioned for them to see down...
They both did as he has said...
"So how long have the person gone missing...? Mr Alfred ask
"Today makes it three days.. "Mary replied
"Have you tried contacting her... Texting her..?
"I wouldn't be here sir if i havent done all that, she isn't replying to any of that.... "Maru said
"How are you related to this person?
"She is my friend... "Mary replied shapily...
The DPO exhales.... "Have she gone out without informing anyone of her whereabouts before...?
"No she haven't....
Mr Alfred took a deep breathe, he knew for a fact he wont really be concerned with the case, it was a girl who was missing.. She must have probably gone out with a man.... "Do you have a picture of her?
Mary nodded... She brought her phone out and search for Manny picture, it wasn't long before she found one, she quickly show it to the DPO
Shock swept through the DPO as he saw the picture.. It was her, it was certainly her.. She was the slut that was introduced to him by his friend... The one who left before he woke up in the morning... He huffs not letting them see his shocked expression... And gave the phone back to her....
"What makes you think she is missing....? He ask
Mary sigh, she wonder why everyone kept asking that question... "She is my friend sir...."She gritted thinking of a suitable way to explain why she thinks her friend is missing or probably why she thinks something has happened to her...."I know her very well sir, its very unlike her to go out for three days without informing any of us, moreover i have been calling her severely, she isn't taking any of my cals, nor is she returning them...
"Have you ever thought she mighy want to be alone for the time being....? Mr Alfred ask, he was damn sure she has gone out with a man and she needs no disturbance to interfere with her job...
"That's very unlike my friend sir"mary replied shapily......
"Even if she wants to be alone, that shouldn't be enough reason for her not to pick my calls, something must have happened, am very sure of that sir... "Mary added with confidence
Mr Alfred sigh, he wasnt sure if he was going to organize a search party for a girl like that, for all he knows, she could be somewhere having sex with a man that instant and her friend is here worrying about her... That girl is a slut.. She will definitely go back home when she is done with whatever man she is with..... "If that is so, we will dl our best to find her.... "
"We appreciate that sir, we are really grateful you are willing to help us find her..... "Jacob said
mary gave him her phone number, they thanked him and left the office...
"Do you think he is really going to help us... He didn't even ask me for my number if i havent given it to him... "Mary said when they were inside the car
"You worry too much, its the police, it's their duty.. They will find Manny soon.... "Jacob said.. Start the engine and drove out of the station...
Mary prays and hopes they find Manny...... "Come home soon Manny"She muttered to herself

EPISODE 12

WITH SMILES ON HER FACE, mary stood and waitef patiently until Jacob drove out of sight, she swallowed hard and exhales shapily when she couldn't find the trace of the car again.....she quickly brought out the gate key and open the gate, for a moment she just stood there staring at the gate wondering if Manny has passed through it,if Manny was already home....
Slowly the smiles faded from her face... Three days and there is no sign or news of her.....
She quickly wipe away the tear that was clung ho her eyelid....... She walk in and close the gate.. Sharon wasnt home yet, that explains why the gate was still locked outside...
She drag het feet as she walk to the threshold of the house, she stood at the balcony wondering where Manny could have gone to.. Where she might be......
When she find no answer to the questions,she went into the house, it was just as she has left it.. The well arranged pillows on the chair and the glass of juice she couldn't finish..
She threw herself on the chair, pick up one of the pillows and clung it to herself ,she glance at the time.. It was almost evening and Sharon hasn't return...
She cling to one side of the chair and prays the pray the police help her find Manny..
"Oh God, please keep Manny safe"..she muttered to herself..

************************
MARY quivered at the vibration of her phone, she didn't realise when she has slept off, she wipe her eyes with her right palm, she exhales as the phone vibrated again, with a curious mind of who might be calling... She pick the phone up and it was an unknown number.. She quickly sat up... Enthusiasm tinge with curiously prick her nerves as she thought it might be Manny calling.... Without hesitation she answered the call.....
"Hello... "She said shapily the moment the call connected...
"Hello. "she said again when she got no reply the first time...
She grunts at the silence from the other end ......could the person he playing tricks on her.....
"Manny.. "She muttered......
"Mary right.... "A masculine voice came up from the other end
Mary thought of who it might be... Could it be the DPO or someone who has information about Manny... The voice was deep.. muffled...
"Yes.... "Mary replied with clenched teeth
She heard the low grunt in the person's voice...
"It's me Taiwo... "The voice said
Mary sigh, for a moment she thought it could be Manny or someone who has information on her whereabout
"Taiwo how are you? She said with knitted brows...
"Am good... "He said...
There was a pause in the call... Mary wonder why he had called, how did he have her number... She and Taiwo weren't really the talking type.... They weren't that close.....
"Hey, i wanted to ask if you have seen Sharon today?he ask
Mary gritted her teeth, just what she was thinking.... He must have called because Of Sharon..she pitied him... He was the boy Sharon was cheating on... Sometimes she thinks sharon doesn't deserve a guy like him....
"She left early this morning.... "Mary replied....
She sigh at the sound of her lie.. She couldn't tell him the truth... What will he think if she tells him Sharon has been out since the previous day..
She heard the low groan of disappointment in his throat...
"Can you ask Manny, cos I've been calling her.. She isn't picking my call.... "
Mary put on a woebegone face..... "Manny hasnt come home for three days... "She said sepulchrally...
"Is everything ok? He ask
Mary took a deep breathe.. Is everything really ok... "yes.. "she replied faintly...
"I will tell Sharon you called...? She added feeling agitated about the call... ..
"I will appreciate that"He replied and ended the call
Mary face turn pale as she drop the phone on the chair.. She look at the house.. It was awfully quiet.. Loneliness was her companion.. All she could hear was her own heartbeat....
"Manny please come home soon.... "She.muttered...

************************
Francis look out from the window as the heavy rainfall Hit the zinc, it feels as the rain isn't going to stop.. He scoffs as he remenber his childhood days....
He drop the curtains as the rainfall was followed by thunder...
He reclined his back on the chair and wrap his hands on the pillow... He stare atbthe bottles on the table.. He made a low groan..he perceive the smell of alcohol protruding from his mouth... He wish Peter was still there with him but the big headed man was eager to go home to see his beloved Jenny he speaks highly of...
"Bleep you man, you haven't even met her.... "He cursed himself as he realise he hasn't even met this Jenny hus friend speak so highly of..
He made a faint smile on his face as he realise itvwas actually the first time his playboy friend has talk about a girl in that manner... Though he claimed not to love her.. He said he doesn't really love her that it was just a fling.... "Get what you want and move on to a new blood"He quotes Peter's words....
He chuckles as the quote echoed in his head.. Butbhe knew better.. His friend was falling in love.. It was like that for him the first he met Mary.. She was innocent.. Soft spoken, Desent in every way.. She was the kind of girl anyone will reach the sky for.... And he wasn't ready to lose that kind of girl....
He grunts as his stomach ache, he sigh.. He hasn't really eaten anything.. He was frustrated.. Confused... All he could think of was a bottle of brandy to solve his problems...he glance at the clock.. The time was 7:56pm...
He didn't realise when the time got to that.. He must have devoted all his time to the brandy...
He is going to set things right with her, no matter what, he is not going to let her go...

*************************
Mary struggle to stand up as she heard a knock on the door.. She blinked her eyes, then wipe them with the back of her palm....
The knock came again..this time it came with her name, she immediately recognise the voice.. Without hesitation she stood up and walk towards the door....
She didn't notice when she had actually slept off... She yawn when she got to the door.. Then she open it....
Mary didn't realise her hand was blocking the way until Sharon push it aside....
"Thank God you are home"Mary said as Sharon walked pass her.. She close the door and lock it with the key....
"Is she back...? Sharon Blared out
Mary sigh... "Now you are finally interested in finding out what happened to our friend.. "
"Just answer the question.. "Sharon retorted..
Mary suck her teeth... "No she isn't... "She replied shabbily and sat on the chair
Sharon hope her instincts isn't right.. She hope Pope has nothing to do with Manny's disappearance...
"Hasn't she called you yet?Sharon ask anxiously
Mary gritted, she stare at Sharon wondering how stupid the question she was asking was.... "If she had, don't you think you will be the first person to know... "
"Have you called her again...?
"I have called her countless times.. She is not picking... "Mary retorted irritated
"So what have you done about it....? Sharon snapped
She thought of the possibility thatnit might be Pope.. She is getting convinced its Pope.. If Pope has Manny, she has to find out....
"You speak as though she is not your friend...."Mary retorted..... She bit her lower lip... "You two were really close, it really surprise me how you can be so......
"Save it.... "Sharon cut in harshly.... "I only ask you a question, you don't have to lecture me.. "
Mary sigh but gave no reply..
"Do you think Manny will worru the way you are worrying now if you were in her position.... "Sharon said glowering at her........
She suck her teeth and continue... "Manny isn't the friend you think she is... "
"If she isn't the kind of friend i think then what kind of friend is she...? Mary ask agitated tinge with curiously....
Sharon lour her eyes at het then she turn to walk away.....
"Did you know she was dating Jeremy....? Mary blared out when Sharon took a few steps from her
Sharon turn around to face her..... "Where they dating....?
Mary swallowed hard... "You didn't know.. I thought Manny told you... "
"She didn't tell me anything like that, she only told me they were friends.... "
"They were more than that... It turn out they were dating.... They were engaged and were making plans to get married ..i heard they even set a wedding date... "
"Did Jeremy tell you that? Sharon ask greatly shocked..... Wondering why Manny woll keep that from her...
Mary lour her head.... She sniff..... "We found Jeremy dead... "
"Oh my God, what happened....?
"he committed suicide... He left a note, he said he couldn't take the heartbreak she gave him.... So he ended his life.... "
"Manny broke his heart....? Sharon ask sepulchrally
"I don't know if it was Manny, in his note, he wrote Maggie not Manny.... "
"if he is dead, how did you know they dated...?
"His neighbor in his former compound recognized Manny from her picture... She told me everything..... "
"If he wrote Maggie instead of Manny... Then who is Maggie.....?

EPISODE 13

"I HAVE NO IDEA"mary muttered after a proper thinking of who Maggie might be....
"But how could Manny not tell us about this..? Mary added.....
Sharon slack-jawed her eyes... "Like i said, Manny isn't the kind of friend you think she is.. Am not surprised she hid this from us.... "
Mary bit her lower lip... "Aren't you a bit bothered that our friend could be in trouble or something must have happened to her..... ?Mary blared out
Sharon didnt reply, she just eyed her and walk away.... She is sure Pope has Manny, she need to find out what Pope has done with Manny....
Mary watch her until her room door slammed, she wonder how much a person can change over a period of time, she wanted to tell her she reported Manny's disappearance at the police station but it seems she wasn't interested in knowing anything about their friend...
She look at the window, drag the curtain to one side and peep outside... It was almost dark, the weather was a bit cloudy now.. More like it was going to rain again after that heavy downpour.. She closed her eyes then pray to God to keep her friend safe wherever she is.....


**************************
The DPO made a low grunt as he gulp down a glass of beer....
"Life becomes fun when you have the right woman in your arm in this cold weather... "The DPO mr Alfred said as he drop the glass on the table....
His friend Mr Musa look to his left handside... He lick his lips when he saw a woman walked into the bar.. He was inclined to make a move... He felt a bit disappointed when the woman sat beside another man, probably the man she came to see...
Some drunk men were dancing to the tune of the music..hollering and make all kinds of noises....
"Not only the right woman but the one who knows how to make a man's body shake and quiver for more... "Mr Musa said
Both men burst into laughter at the funny reply.. .
Mr Musa was dark in complexion, had a straight tribal mark on his left cheek with a skin cut hair... He was probably in his early fifties, a not too tall man with a slender body tinged with moustache..
The DPO pour another glass full of beer as he chuckled once again to his friend statement...
"So tell me DPO, what about the ripe fruit you said you saw on your way to the station.... ?Mr Musa ask with a smile on his face...
The DPO giggled... "Musa i told you to stop calling me DPO, stop been formal with me"
Mr Musa chulkled but gave no reply...
The DPO look at his friend who was very eager to hear the answer to his question....... "You know me, am a very sharp sharp man,by now you should have know i have collected a share from that ripe fruit.. Oyibo fele fele nor dey pass my eyes dey escape. I must hammer amm"
They both burst into laughter.... Some people at the bar turn to look at them....
"Alfred himself, you are the man.. I too dey believe your judgement..... "Mr Musa said lavishing accolades on him....
"You won't believe who was reported missing in the station earlier today.. "The DPO said as he pick the glass of beer and gulp a bit down...
"Who is it? Mr Musa ask as he gulp down his
"That same girl you introduce me to the very first day i resumed duty as DPO of this town... "
The musa tried to remember, then the memory came running to his head.... "You mean Liza? He ask curiously
"Oh.... I have even forgotten that was the name she called for us, her name is not even Liza, her name is....... "The DPO try to recap but nothing came.... "I have forgotten... "He added after a slight pause
"It's been long since i last saw her"Mr Musa said
"Her friend with one other guy came to report her missing... "
"Missing......! "Mr Musa chulkled at the thought of it.. "A girl like that can never go missing, she must probably be with one man"Mr Musa added
"That was exactly the same thing i told myself.... "
"So what are your plans, are you going to dispatch your men to find her?
"Dispatch my men to search for a girl like that..... Why would i want to waste when i know she is in bed with a man now. "
Mr Musa laugh and drank another glass of beer....
"Searching for her is a waste of time, sooner or later she will return home to her friends.. I have better things to do than to find a prostitute.... "The DPO added
"But do you know i miss that girl"Mr Musa said
"of course, you ought to miss her, i miss her too, she is one of the girls who has ever made me want to spend all my money, the day she handled me in bed, i scored her 100%..."
Mr Musa laugh.... "Even the day she handled me, you need to see how i was shaking and screaming like a little child, but i didn't mind, the pleasure was just too good..... "
They both burst into laughter and toss their drinks together...
"That was the spirit my friend"The DPO interjected...
"Am yet to see a girl like her, that girl is a comfirmed man handler... "

Sharon exhales at the morning cold that prick her skin...her muscles cramp as she glance at the time.... It was 6:32am yet he hasn't come out, she wonder if Pope had lied to her when he told her he was going to go out early this morning for an urgent business....
That is the real she is here, she hid carefully on the other side of the fence, she has decided to follow where ever he goes and she was fully inclined to do so.. Who knows he may just lead her to where he has kept Manny if he has her....
Throughout the night, her instinct kept telling her Pope knows something about Manny's disappearance, her suspicions were comfirmed when she eavesdrop on his conversation the previous day when she was at his house.....
She shudder as she remenber Pope words from the phone call.. "Give her food, if she scream too much, gag her mouth with the clothe.... "She quiver in her spines as Pope words keep ringing in her head,what if it was Manny the conversation was about..
She shift aback as the gates began to open,seconds later she caught sight of his car slowly coming outside...
She knew for a fact this is the right time to find out where Manny is.... ''
When she was sure he didn't see her,she slowly enter the taxi of the man she has paid to wait....
"Follow that car.... "She said agitated the moment she entered the backseat
The taxi man who was half asleep quickly startrd the engine and began to tail the car...
Pope car was on high speed but Sharon never let the driver to lost sight of him, she wonder if Pope knew the taxi was following him.. She hopes for her sake and Manny's, such ideas never cross his mind..
Sharon watch as Pope reverse into a lonely road, this time he wasn't on high speed anymore but was moving slow and steady, the buildings on the street can be counted, she wonder the kind of people that were living in such a deserted area..
Shock swept through her as Pope's car stopped in front of a fence compound...
She quickly signalled the taxi driver to move pass Pope's car, she didn't want to arouse any suspicion...
She watched through the side mirror as Pope came out from the car and went into the compound...
Sje signal the taxi driver to stop the car when she was a bit distant from Pope's car... She quickly came out from the taxi...
"Madam,you nor go pay me? The taxi driver ask
She scoffs then deep her hand on the side pocket of her jean trouser and gave the taxi man a thousand naira...
She look around the area the only dominant thing in the area were bushes.. It was as quiet as a graveyard.. She glance at the house Pope has entered earlier, Manny could be there.. The house was probably a good place to hide someone or probably kill.....
She look ahead, there was no house closer to the one Pope has entered.. Fear engulfed her as the thought of kill creep into her head.. What a lonely and deserted area to die.. What if she is marching into her dead.. The area was a good place to kill and bury someone and no one will find out...
She shudder as she listen to her inner voice telling her to retreat when she still has the chance... Manny wasn't worth risking her life... But if Manny dies,it will her fault,her jealousy of her drag her to make a deal with Pope... Manny's enemy...
She took a deep breathe when the engine of the taxi interrupted her thoughts..
"Hey listen, please i beg you to wait for me for fifteen minutes.. "She said to the taxi man..
"Fifteen minutes...? The taxi man ask
Sharon nodded"If am not back before then, call the police.... "
"Madam, you go pay extra charges o"The taxi man said
Sharon nodded... "Thank you... "she said, look around again then she made the dreaded move....
Slowly with pounding heart, she begin to walk towards the house....
She stood for a moment when she got to the gate....
What if Manny isn't there, what if Pope has nothing to do with her disappearance... But what if she is right. If Manny is here, this could be the only chance she might have to save her....
She knew for a fact this was a dangerous place and her chance to live or die totally lies on the decision she will make now...

STAY TUNED FOR THE NEXT EPISODE
