EPISODE 14

MARY SLIPPED DOWN FROM THE CHAIR AS THE CALL ENDED IN HER EARS...
this was the seventeenth time she was calling Manny since she woke up but she wasn't picking..
"God, what has happened to Manny. "She muttered silently to herself...
She was inclined to call her again but she thought it will just be a waste of time, if Manny was ok, she believes Manny would have return her calls, all wasn't well with Manny and she know that for a fact.. She look at the time on her phone, it was 7:27am,she wondered where Sharon has rushed to so early in the morning.. Sharon wasn't the type to go out so early....
She grunts at the thought, what does she really know about her friends... Sometimes she thinks Sharon has a clue on where Manny has gone to..
She wave off the thought as she thought it was stupid... If Sharon knows, she would have said something....
She quickly stood up and she suddenly remenbers Manny keeps a diary, she quickly rushed to Manny's room....
The room was just the way it was the day Manny left it.... She scan her eyes for a diary but all she could see were harlequin love stories and magazines..
She pick up one of the novels, she never knew Manny was into novels let alone buying...
She remenber when they were in school, Manny had no interest in reading, she believes in sorting out lecturers to pass exams. So it's really a surprise to know Manny read novels...
She wonder why she hasn't noticed... Does Manny read them secretly...
She drop the one she was reading as she thought of where the Diary might be...
She decided to check the wardrobe, smile curve her lips as she saw a white teddy bear, she pick it up, on the tag it was written.. "LOVE SUN"
She wonder what that meant, she put it back into the wardrobe, she slack-jawed her eyes as she saw Manny's stylish clothes....
"Classy girl Manny"She muttered as she began to touch the clothes...
She exhales as she realise she was actually here to find a diary not to admire clothes.. She scan her eyes round the wardrobe but she found nothing that look like a diary...
She huffs, a bit disappointed.... She sigh when she realise she hasn't checked everywhere.. She decided to check the drawer... She pull out the drawer at the top,but it was just her necklaces, earrings and jewelries of all sorts that were there....she pick out one of the necklaces... She admire it, she remenber the first day Manny has bought it.. She was looking so elegant on it, she remenbered how Sharon has begged to wear it but Manny didn't concur to her beggings.sje drop it and close it... Then she pulled out ghe one beneath it... She sigh, a sigh of relief tinge with enthusiasm when she saw the diary there...
Without hesitation, she pick it up, she glance through the cover, then opened it...
Most of the times,she has seen Manny writing on the diary, most timesbshe gets curious and ask what she writes... Manny has replied it was her life in many occasions..
Mary remenbers how she has left at her statement. How can one writes her life on the sheets of a diary....
She began to open it sheet by sheet but nothing seems to be meaningful in the diary, at least there was nothing that could give her a clue to where Manny is..
Without hesitation, she flip the sheets to the last sheet she has written on.....
With eyes wide open, Mary read out the last words Manny has written on the diary.... "I think am beginning to fall for sun"
"Who is sun? She ask herself..
The question repeatedly echo in her head, she quickly rushed to the wardrobe and pick up the teddy bear, then she read the words on the tag again... "Love sun".....
She placed the teddy bear beside the diary... Could this sun had sent her the teddy bear...
The last guy Manny spoke off before her disappearance was Jacob, but Manny never said anything about falling for him, moreover, Manny never said anything about nicknaming him sun.....
She knows Manny, she isn't the type that is easily swept off her feet by a man,Manny has never falling in love with anyone, so who is sun, could sun be Jeremy, could it be Jacob... But Jacob never mentioned anything like that....
A knock on the door interrupted her thoughts, she took a last glance at the diary, then quickly rush out of the room...
The knock came again, she wonder who is knocking.. With a curious mind, she quickly opened the door..
Heart pounding, she stood therr, staring at the person.....
"What are you doing here....? She ask infuriated

**********************
Slowly, Sharon push the gate open, her heart was pounding like it wants yo explodes.. She was scared, really scared...
She gaze at the small bungalow, a side of it was well painted with blue and orange colour,the other side was unpaint.
She scan her eyes around to see if anyone was kn sight, when she saw no-one, she began to tiptoe into the compound...
She quiver as she realise iy wasn't right to tiptoe in that circumstances, with a momentum, she increase her pace until she got to the door, she wasn't sure if the door was open or not, she decided to walk round the building and peep through the windows, if Manny is in the house, she must be in one of the rooms, she started with the window that was close to her, she carefully peep through the glass window, there was no one in sight, there were no chairs, just a small stool that was place closer to the wall....
She quickly left therr and began to move forward..
She quivered in her spines when she heard the sound of something that fell... She quickly retrace her steps, she trace back where the sound came from, to her surprise, curtains were placed on the window... She immediately know that someone was there..
She shivered when she heard the sound of a chair clattering on the floor, she listened carefully, she shudder as she heard a low voice struggling to scream...
She thought the person's mouth might be gagged with a cloth.. Carefully she peep through, then she saw a strap of the person's hair...
"Manny"She muttered with a trembling voice.
She peep again, but she couldn't see the person's face.... "Manny"She called out again. She was inclined to turn around and save her in any way she can....
She was hit hard on the head the moment she turned around.. She grimace in pains, then she fell unconscious..
"Fool"A voice raved at her

*************************
"Am sorry, i didn't mean to offend you by my presence...... "Francis said as Mary glower at him....
The memory of seeing him with that club LovePeddler came running back to her head..."Well congratulations, you just did..... Get out. "She said and slammed the door....
He hold the door and stopped it from closing... "Please just listen to me"
"Listen to what....? Mary listen interjects harshly.... ...."Listen to your lies, or listen to how you slept with that slut at the back of the club...."She retorted
"Am sorry okay, she drugged me, and she said she is you, i was so stupid to believe her, i....
"Stop saying that nonsense, even if i wanted to have sex with you, i will never do that at the back of a club house, so tell your lies to someone else.... "she retorted
"I swear to you Mary, i didn't do intentionally, i love you, i love you too much to jeopardize our relationship... "
"You already did that, whatever relationship we had is gone, you can go back to your slut, since you enjoy f**king her"She hollered and was about to slam the door but he hold it again....
She curls her lips......
"Please Mary, believe me when i say this, i didn't know what i was doing that night, i know there is no excuse to justify my innocence but am telling the truth, someone intentionally paid her to drugged me, same person must have called you, this is all a set up Mary.... "He said
"You know what, whoever called me that night, am glad she did, if she wouldn't, i wouldn't have known you are nothing but a cheating bastard.... "
"Am sorry Mary..... "
Mary grunts... "Fine, you have made your point, you can get out..... "
"Please just listen to whag am saying.... I will never cheat on you.. Never.... "
"You already did Francis, you hurt my feelings and broke my heart into shreds and pieces.... You have done enough already, just leave me alone..... "She yelled...
"I can't.. "Francis blared out..... "That's the problem, i can't leave you alone, i love you too much to do that....."
"What do you want from me Francis, you want my forgiveness, fine you got it, i forgive you, now get out and never show your face to me...... "
"Am innocent Mary, deep down you know i am, you know all this is a set up, you want me to leave you alone but i can't do it, i will rather die than be without you... "
"Fine... die"She interjects harshly....... "Die, maybe that way, i may have some piece of mind.. "She added greatly infuriated, then she slammed the door in his face......

**************************
Slowly Sharon opened her eyes..... Fear engulfed her spines as she realise where she was and what just happened.... She look around wondering the room she was, the room was empty and she was the only one in it, she quickly rush to the door....
She groan when she noticed the door was locked.. "Let me out of here you scoundrel.... "She yelled....
It quickly occur to her to call Mary, tell Mary to call for help, she deep her hands in her pocket.... She furrowed her brows she didn't find it.... That bastard has taken her phone....
Infuriated she began to bang on the door.... "Pope, let me out of here.... Let me out you bastard.... "She raved
That was certainly Manny she has seen earlier, Manny is here, she wonder if anyone will hear if she scream for help.... She sigh, a sigh of relief when she remember she has told the taxi man to call the police if she wasn't out in fifteen minutes.... Now she just have to put her hope on the taxi man.. For her sake and Manny..

*****************************
As if he has a bad dream, the taxi man quickly woke up from sleep, he has been dreaming, he wipe his eyes as he realise where he was..... "So this madam never come back"He said in pidgin, then he glance at the time..... "Shei... Time don go like this.... "He said and grumble..... "I know how much i for don get if not be dis madam wen just com delay person for here, abeg mak i dey go, if she com out, she go stop anoda taxi...."Without hesitation, he start the car engine and drove off

EPISODE 15

JACK STARED AT THE CIGARETTE BETWEEN HIS FINGERS. It was almost short enough to burn him. With an effort, he leaned forward to crush it out.....then he pick out another one from the pack,he quickly lit with the lighter.....
He inhale the cigarette, he removed it from his lips and blew out the smoke in the air as if it was the aftermath of a kiss that aches to steal a life he was struggling to elude......
The rich benignant cigar smoke eddied coolly down his throat; he puffed it out again in rings which breasted the air bravely for a moment...
He took a deep drag and exhaled the smoke into the air, watching it disappear in the cloud of smoke above their booth.
"Where is she? Pope ask the moment he entered the room...
He cough from the offensive choking odour of the smoke....
Jack took a puff from the cigar and snorted the smoke out of a flaring nostril.
Deadly choking Smoke slithers and writhes in his face and fills the room.
He stood up to meet his face.....
Pope grunts, then he exhales when Sharon scream again from the room... He huffs when he heard her voice and realise she is still in the room she was held in...
"You better tell your bitch to stop screaming ..."Jack said in a baritone voice
"How could you do this man, How could you allow that girl to follow you here"Sparrow who was sitting on the chair interjects.
"I didn't know she was following me... "Pope blared out.... He knit his brows when Sharon scream from the room again....
"You hear that..... "Jack said infuriated...... "What were you thinking, how could you not know she was following you..... "he exhales, drag in the cigar and blew the smoke in Pope face... "You better pray that bitch doesn't ruin this plan for us, that girl locked in there is worth millions of naira, i don't intend to hit a snag in getting that money, so you go into that room and that bitch to be silent else, am gonna put a bullet in her mouth and make her quiet forever.... "
"Are you threatening me......? Pope raved....... "Have you forgotten who introduced you into this game... "
"No hard feelings brother, just want to be on the clear with you.. "Jack rebuked....
Pope gave him a dirty look, then he left him and head for the room Sharon was locked in.....

*****************************
"Pope..... "Sharon scream as she hit and kick the door....
She lost her balance when the door opening push her over.....
"You psychotic bastard..... "Sharon retorted the moment she saw Pope....
"Are you okay....?
Sharon grunts...."What sort of stupid question is that, what are planning to do with Manny....?
"Manny is not here and you shouldn't have followed me here. "
Sharon curl her lips.... "I saw Manny in that room, what the hell are you doing with her..? She queried
"Is this the reason you followed me here, to see if Manny is here. I told you i don't know where Manny is.... "
"Liar.... "Sharon cut in harshly...... "I know who i saw, and it was Manny.. "
"That wasn't Manny, that is chief Madu's daughter.... "Pope blared out impetuously....
Sharon scoffs..... "You can keep denying all you want, but i swear to you, am not leaving this place without Manny, i swear it.... "
"Am not thinking of letting you out. "Pope interjected.
Sharon shudder.... "What, are you going to kill me..?
"I can't let you out of here until the deal with her has been finalized.... "
"The deal with who, with Manny, is that why you kidnapped her and tie her up....for a deal, are...
"That isn't Manny..... "Pope interjects irritated....... He exhales.... "I told you and am still telling you, i dont know where Manny is, who you saw was chief Madu's daughter not Manny.. "
Sharon gritted, then she fold her hand across her chest..... "I don't believe you.. "
"Believe me or not, the truth is, Manny isn't here.... "
Sharon grunts, was she too quick in judgement, she never really saw the person's face... But her guts tells her it's Manny, Pope was good in lying and manipulating people's mind....... "If that isn't Manny, why do you have chief Madu's daughter here.....?
"If you know who chief Madu is, then you know the answer to your question.... "
Sharon jut her chin as she thought about chief Madu, chief Madu is a well recognized and respected chief in the society... It is rumoured that he is very stingy, that he only spend his money on his own luxury and only daughter, he doesn't care about anyone else but his family... Many people have told stories about him, that he is the kind of man that tells you his life story instead of giving you the money you begged for... In quote... 'Chief Madu is a greedy, stingy,selfish man..... '......
Her eyes slack-jawed when she figure out the answer to her question.... "Oh my God, you kidnapped her for ramson.... "She blared out shock
"Exactly..... And now that you know that, we can't let you out of here.. The rest of the boys are already pissed off by your screams and rantings,we can't have anyone jeopardizing this plan. The chief daughter is worth millions Of naira.. "
"How much precisely are you bailing her father...?she ask curiously
"Fifty million in cash.. "
"Oh my God, are you crazy.... "She said in an askance manner...... "That man is literally going to drain his account dry.. "
Pope giggled.... "You have no idea how much that man is worth.. "
Sharon quickly knit her brows when she realise she was diverting from the actual topic, whatever lies Pope was feeding her were beginning to get to her....... "Where is Manny Pope?she ask with a frown line encroaching on her forehead
Pope grunts....... "What do you want me to do for you to believe me that i don't know where Manny is, i told You, Manny didn't show up as supposed.... I don't know where she is.... "
"If you didnt take Manny, then where the hell is she....? She hollered....
"I don't know.. perhaps she is dead.... "Pope lashed out irritated.....
Sharon furrow her brows, then she clenched her fist... "I want to see that girl"
"What girl.... You cannot see her, don't you understand it.... "
"You said she isn't Manny, i need to comfirm for myself you are telling the truth...... "She retorted
"Why would i lie to you about something so crucial ?
"Because you have always lied to me.... "She cut in harshly.... "You have always lied about everything, our relationship, the stupid slut i caught you with... Your...
"Enough.... That's enough..."He lashed out.... "You can believe whatever you want,i really don't care anymore, you think i killed Manny, fine, i killed her, satisfy now..... ?....
He took a deep breathe, he clench his fist and try to calm the anger that boils in him.... "What is even wrong with you, you followed me here, am the reason you are still alive right now..... "
"I want to see the girl,is that so hard to do.....?
"Pope... "
Sparrow voice interrupted them... Pope quickly turn around to face him....
"It's time.... "Sparrow added....
"It's time for what....? Sharon ask anxiously....
Pope gave her a dirty look, then he shut the door and lock it...
"Pope... Pope.... "Sharon shouted from inside....
"You bastard..... I hate you.."She groan


***************************
Mary quickly wipe off the tear that was falling from her eyes, he is not worth it.....
Without hesitation She went back into Manny's room....
She thought of guessing who sun is but she couldn't... All she keep thinking about was Francis......
She sat on the bed and cling the white teddy bear to herself, He cheated on her, that isn't something she can forget, she will live to remenber that probably till the day of her death..... He stoop so low to have sex with common slut....
She knitted her brows and wipe off another tear that was about to fall from her eyes... Why can't she stop thinking about him.. Why does he always invade her thoughts....
She pick up her phone and thought of calling someone... Someone that could distract her from her thoughts... She thought of calling Sharon.... She bit her lips when she realise wasn't the one to talk to... Sharon will probably hang up on her.....
She scroll down her dialled numbers.... She made a faint smile when she saw Jacob's number... She could call him.. At least for the past two days, Jacob has proven to be a better friend than Sharon...
She hesitated a bit.. Then she drop the phone on the bed..... She pick it up again then she called him....
She was inclined to end the call as it started ringing.... But just then the call connected and his voice came up.....
Confused on what to say she said "Hi.... "
"Good morning to you too"Jacob replied from the other end....
She grind her teeth when she realise that was what she was supposed to say.....
"So how are you doing, is she back....? Jacob ask
Mary frown at the thought of Manny.... "No, but i find out something..... "
"Wow, you did some diggings,what did you find out? Jacob ask
Mary stood up from the bed wondering if that was the right time to ask the question she was so eager to ask...... "Did you buy a teddy bear for Manny.. I mean as a gift..... ?
"No i didn't..... "He replied...
Mary made a low groan... She sigh in disappointment.... For a moment she thought sun could be Jacob...... "Can you come over,maybe later so we can figure out my findings together.......? She ask with clenched teeth
She grittef when she heard Jacob stress intonation
"Emm, i don't think that will be possible, i am actually going out to take pictures at an occasion...... "
"Oh sure, i totally forgot you are a photographer.... "Mary said impetuously..... She exhales when she thought she sounded too obvious..... "I mean.. You know.... "
"I know...... "Jacob interjects.... "Alright gat to go, call you later.. "He added....
Mary gritted as the call ended.....
She exhales wondering who sun is if it isn't Jacob...
She resorted to a straiface when a knock sounded on the door.... She just wish and pray that Francis is gone...
She quickly left the room.....
The knock came again, this time it was faint as uf the person was tired of knocking....
She quickly peep from the window.....
She frown when she saw him standing there....
Infuriated, she quickly walk to the door and open it..... "Do you mind telling me what you are still doing here....? She raved
"Am not leaving here until you believe me"Francis said back putting his hands in his two side pockets..
"Do you know i can call the police to arrest you for lurking around this premises...."
"Go ahead,call them, let them come and arrest me for resolving issues with my girlfriend.....
"Ex girlfriend.... "Mary interjects
"Whatever you say, but know am not leaving here until everything is resolved..... "He said then he sat on the balcony.....
"
Mary groan thinking of all the possible ways to chase him away.....
"And i heard Manny is missing, have you heard anything from her....... ?
"Not something i should start sharing with you.... "She blared out
"You know, i could help, even if i never really liked her, i can help in finding her if she is missing.. "
"No-one is asking for your help....."Mary cut in shapily
"Oh.... Then i guess i will just have to sit here..... "
"Fine, sit there.... "Mary said with irritation in her voice.. Without a second glance at the him, she went in and slammed the door....
"Am still here, aren't going nowhere "Francis shouted from outside
Mary knit her brows.... She sat down on the chair, then she stood up again... Wby can't he just go.... Then she thought of the help she can get from him....she inhaled deeply, what is she thinking.. She hates him for what he did to her, she cant ask for his help...
She exhales then quickly walk to the door and opened it.....
She gave him a dirty look...... "You want to help in finding Manny? She ask with frowned face
"If you are asking.... "Francis scurred.
"This isnt a game,you want to help or not. ?she queried
"Fine, i will help"he said jumping down from the balcony.....
"And a point to note, this isn't taking you back.. This is strictly helping to find Manny.. "She snapped...
"Alright whatever you say.... "He said with a smile....
He sigh, a sigh of relief as he followed her inside......
"So how long have she be missing? Francis ask
"Four days.. "She replied with disgust....
"Could she have gone out to see a man....?
Mary gave him a dirty look....
Francis quickly realise he just made a silly remark... Mary like her friends and she gets angry when such things are spoken about them....
"This was a total bad idea, you can leave.... "Mary retorted...
"Am sorry.... "
"Sorry..... "She cramp her muscles...... "You know what, you are not worth my presence... You are nit even worth the calories i burn talking to you..... "Mary said harshly
"Am sorry okay, i truly am... "
A knock sounded in the door again... For a split second, Mary thought it could be Manny.. Then on second thought Sharon....
She quickly opened the door....
With wide eyes tinge with smiles that followed, she stare at the person outside..... "I thought you said you are going for an occasion..... "
"I am, just not time yet, i wanted to surprise you. 'lets say i was so curious on knowing about your findings after you ended the call.... "Jacob said jokingly
Frown lines encroach on Francis forehead as he saw Jacob..... "Seriously, we are trying to resolve our issues and you called a third party"Francis blared out
"This third party as you call him will be staying while you will be leaving..... "Mary retorted...
"Am not going anywhere...... "Francis replied shapily
"Oh yes you are... "Mary snarled
"okay, nobody is leaving, we should all stay here"Jacob interjects.....
Mary grunts, then she gave Francis a killer look....
Francis drool his eyes at Jacob....then he sat down....
He watch as Jacob sat beside Mary.. It annoy him, he was inclined to sit in their middle but that will be childish..... "
Jacob wink his eyes at Francis, his stare was making him a bit uncomfortable..... "So does he know Manny is missing....?
"I know.... "Francis answered shapily
Mary suck her teeth then she shift her gaze to Jacob.... "I find something in Manny's diary, maybe if we know more about it, it could give us a clue.... "
"Seriously Mary, are you going to tell that to this guy, how long have you known him... Two months, one week. I know he is not your friend.. "Francis cut in infuriated
"Can you please mind your own damn business, you are only here because he permits you.... "Mary said back....
Jacob scoffs... "Look man, i know you don't know me and we might have started off on the wrong toes.. But i assure you, am cool..... "
"Cool........ "Francis intoned...... "Well i don't like you and i don't think you can be trusted... And to be honest, am glad we started off on a wrong foot...... "
"Francis...... "Mary queried....
"Come on Mary, do you know who this guy is, he is trying to get under your skin...... "
"Come on man, what's your problem, are you jealous....? Jacob ask irritated..
"You are getting too close to my woman... That's my problem... "

EPISODE 15




***************************
Mary quickly wipe off the tear that was falling from her eyes, he is not worth it.....
Without hesitation She went back into Manny's room....
She thought of guessing who sun is but she couldn't... All she keep thinking about was Francis......
She sat on the bed and cling the white teddy bear to herself, He cheated on her, that isn't something she can forget, she will live to remenber that probably till the day of her death..... He stoop so low to have sex with common slut....
She knitted her brows and wipe off another tear that was about to fall from her eyes... Why can't she stop thinking about him.. Why does he always invade her thoughts....
She pick up her phone and thought of calling someone... Someone that could distract her from her thoughts... She thought of calling Sharon.... She bit her lips when she realise wasn't the one to talk to... Sharon will probably hang up on her.....
She scroll down her dialled numbers.... She made a faint smile when she saw Jacob's number... She could call him.. At least for the past two days, Jacob has proven to be a better friend than Sharon...
She hesitated a bit.. Then she drop the phone on the bed..... She pick it up again then she called him....
She was inclined to end the call as it started ringing.... But just then the call connected and his voice came up.....
Confused on what to say she said "Hi.... "
"Good morning to you too"Jacob replied from the other end....
She grind her teeth when she realise that was what she was supposed to say.....
"So how are you doing, is she back....? Jacob ask
Mary frown at the thought of Manny.... "No, but i find out something..... "
"Wow, you did some diggings,what did you find out? Jacob ask
Mary stood up from the bed wondering if that was the right time to ask the question she was so eager to ask...... "Did you buy a teddy bear for Manny.. I mean as a gift..... ?
"No i didn't..... "He replied...
Mary made a low groan... She sigh in disappointment.... For a moment she thought sun could be Jacob...... "Can you come over,maybe later so we can figure out my findings together.......? She ask with clenched teeth
She grittef when she heard Jacob stress intonation
"Emm, i don't think that will be possible, i am actually going out to take pictures at an occasion...... "
"Oh sure, i totally forgot you are a photographer.... "Mary said impetuously..... She exhales when she thought she sounded too obvious..... "I mean.. You know.... "
"I know...... "Jacob interjects.... "Alright gat to go, call you later.. "He added....
Mary gritted as the call ended.....
She exhales wondering who sun is if it isn't Jacob...
She resorted to a straiface when a knock sounded on the door.... She just wish and pray that Francis is gone...
She quickly left the room.....
The knock came again, this time it was faint as uf the person was tired of knocking....
She quickly peep from the window.....
She frown when she saw him standing there....
Infuriated, she quickly walk to the door and open it..... "Do you mind telling me what you are still doing here....? She raved
"Am not leaving here until you believe me"Francis said back putting his hands in his two side pockets..
"Do you know i can call the police to arrest you for lurking around this premises...."
"Go ahead,call them, let them come and arrest me for resolving issues with my girlfriend.....
"Ex girlfriend.... "Mary interjects
"Whatever you say, but know am not leaving here until everything is resolved..... "He said then he sat on the balcony.....
"
Mary groan thinking of all the possible ways to chase him away.....
"And i heard Manny is missing, have you heard anything from her....... ?
"Not something i should start sharing with you.... "She blared out
"You know, i could help, even if i never really liked her, i can help in finding her if she is missing.. "
"No-one is asking for your help....."Mary cut in shapily
"Oh.... Then i guess i will just have to sit here..... "
"Fine, sit there.... "Mary said with irritation in her voice.. Without a second glance at the him, she went in and slammed the door....
"Am still here, aren't going nowhere "Francis shouted from outside
Mary knit her brows.... She sat down on the chair, then she stood up again... Wby can't he just go.... Then she thought of the help she can get from him....she inhaled deeply, what is she thinking.. She hates him for what he did to her, she cant ask for his help...
She exhales then quickly walk to the door and opened it.....
She gave him a dirty look...... "You want to help in finding Manny? She ask with frowned face
"If you are asking.... "Francis scurred.
"This isnt a game,you want to help or not. ?she queried
"Fine, i will help"he said jumping down from the balcony.....
"And a point to note, this isn't taking you back.. This is strictly helping to find Manny.. "She snapped...
"Alright whatever you say.... "He said with a smile....
He sigh, a sigh of relief as he followed her inside......
"So how long have she be missing? Francis ask
"Four days.. "She replied with disgust....
"Could she have gone out to see a man....?
Mary gave him a dirty look....
Francis quickly realise he just made a silly remark... Mary like her friends and she gets angry when such things are spoken about them....
"This was a total bad idea, you can leave.... "Mary retorted...
"Am sorry.... "
"Sorry..... "She cramp her muscles...... "You know what, you are not worth my presence... You are nit even worth the calories i burn talking to you..... "Mary said harshly
"Am sorry okay, i truly am... "
A knock sounded in the door again... For a split second, Mary thought it could be Manny.. Then on second thought Sharon....
She quickly opened the door....
With wide eyes tinge with smiles that followed, she stare at the person outside..... "I thought you said you are going for an occasion..... "
"I am, just not time yet, i wanted to surprise you. 'lets say i was so curious on knowing about your findings after you ended the call.... "Jacob said jokingly
Frown lines encroach on Francis forehead as he saw Jacob..... "Seriously, we are trying to resolve our issues and you called a third party"Francis blared out
"This third party as you call him will be staying while you will be leaving..... "Mary retorted...
"Am not going anywhere...... "Francis replied shapily
"Oh yes you are... "Mary snarled
"okay, nobody is leaving, we should all stay here"Jacob interjects.....
Mary grunts, then she gave Francis a killer look....
Francis drool his eyes at Jacob....then he sat down....
He watch as Jacob sat beside Mary.. It annoy him, he was inclined to sit in their middle but that will be childish..... "
Jacob wink his eyes at Francis, his stare was making him a bit uncomfortable..... "So does he know Manny is missing....?
"I know.... "Francis answered shapily
Mary suck her teeth then she shift her gaze to Jacob.... "I find something in Manny's diary, maybe if we know more about it, it could give us a clue.... "
"Seriously Mary, are you going to tell that to this guy, how long have you known him... Two months, one week. I know he is not your friend.. "Francis cut in infuriated
"Can you please mind your own damn business, you are only here because he permits you.... "Mary said back....
Jacob scoffs... "Look man, i know you don't know me and we might have started off on the wrong toes.. But i assure you, am cool..... "
"Cool........ "Francis intoned...... "Well i don't like you and i don't think you can be trusted... And to be honest, am glad we started off on a wrong foot...... "
"Francis...... "Mary queried....
"Come on Mary, do you know who this guy is, he is trying to get under your skin...... "
"Come on man, what's your problem, are you jealous....? Jacob ask irritated..
"You are getting too close to my woman... That's my problem... "

EPISODE 16

"Okay, that's it.... "Mary rotted out fed up..... She quickly stood up and walk up to the door, then she open it widely.... "You've said enough, i think it's time for you to go now... "
Francis clench his fist,he glared at Jacob who reciprocated the look.. then he shift his gaze to her.... "Am sorry i blared out like that.... "
"This isn't about been sorry, it's about us been done and whatever you are doing to get us back is really annoying.... So please leave.. "She said with muffled teeth...
"I just want to be sure of something, are you chasing me away so you could be alone with him or chasing me away because you don't want to see me....?
"Both.... "She replied shapily with irritation in her voice..... She jut her chin, then knit her brows.... "Just get out... "
Francis heart sank under deep breathes.. He glance at Jacob....
"You cursed this man, don't look at me like that.... "Jacob scurred at him
His body inch him to pounce on him.... And warn him to stay away from his girlfriend.. Far from her but he can't do that, because Mary was there.... He dislikes Jacob and he doesn't know why.. Call it jealousy or whatever but he got right to protect his girlfriend from guys like Jacob......
Without a second glance at him, he walk up to the door... Their eyes met, for a moment he thought he will turn away her eyes when their eyes met.. But she didnt... there was no trace of tears, not in her eyes or in track marks on her reddening face. Her eyes were narrowed, rigid, cold, hard. In that moment he knew he was already far away. Once more he was the enemy. These swings from most loved to most hated would be the end of him. Her states had no greyscale, only the polar extremes existed. He drew in a deep breath, the burning hard stare would last only as long as it took her to think of the most brutally cutting thing she could tear him down with. And after that he could kiss anything breakable goodbye. Which right now might just be his nose, it was so hard to tell and so pointless to walk away but he knew he needs to, perhaps give her space....... "Is this what you want..... For me to walk away..?
Mary snort, then that unforgettable moment of him having sex with that slut came flashing in her head...... She bug her eyes at him.... "Yes... "
"Perhaps you should let him stay Mary.... "Jacob interjects...
He fixated his gaze back on the table as they both turn on him...
"Don't interrupt this Jacob, he is leaving and never coming back... "
Francis suck his teeth.... "Never say never.... I will be back Mary, and when i come, i won't be leaving..... "Those were his last words before he left the compound... Out of the gate....
Mary breathe heavily as she slammed the door....
"Are you okay.. "Jacob ask standing up to meet her...
"Am fine.... "She cut in stopping him from coming closer....
"I understand he hurt your feelings....
"Can we please not talk about him.... "Mary jump in with furrowed brows...
Okay... "Jacob muttered sitting back on the chair...
Mary exhales and sat opposite him....


***************************
Sharon fix her eyes on the door as it opened.... She turn away her face when she realise it was Pope... She wonder how long she has been locked in the room... Probably a full day, she has lost track of time... Anyone in her condition will probably do that......
"Let's go home.... "Pope said standing at the door post...
Sharon bit her lips, not bothering to look at his face... "Have the ransom be paid....? She ask in a hoarse dry voice....
Smiles curve Pope's cheeks.... "We are rich once again baby..... "
She suck her teeth, then she quickly stood up.... "Fine let's go home... "
"You seem tense and pale... And what's with the whole frown face, i just gave you a spine tickling joyous news.. You should be happy we are going to bring this town down with money..... "
"Would that make you tell me where Manny is...? She blared out..
His smiles slowly fade into frown.... "I see you are still on that... You don't still believe me.. "
She huffs, then she tossed back a strap of her hair... "I believe you, now let me go.... "
"Not so fast sweetheart.... ...there is something you must do first... "
"What, do i need to kidnap someone for you... Oh let me guess, should i start mentioning the rich men in town so you can kidnap their daughter... You know very well am not going to help you with that, so get the hell out of my way.... "
Pope scoffs.... "What you are going to do is simple, you are not going to tell anyone what happened here.. No one must know what you witnessed here..
"Are you kidding me...... "She interjects..... She scoffs, with mouth slack-jawed...... "You locked me up in a room for hours, how was i supposed to know what happened here... How was i supposed to witness anything.....
"Well i told you we kidnapped that girl, that literally means you know something... Which is, you know the faces of the kidnappers...
"I know your face not faces.... "She snapped infuriated.
"Doesn't still change the fact that you know something and i won't have blabbing your mouth around especially to your friends..... "He snarled
"When have i ever blab your business to others.....?
He made a wry smile at the sound of her question..... "Just wanted to be clear, because if you start talking things you shouldn't be saying... Those boys in the sitting be the ones coming after you and i won't be able to do anything about it..... "
Sharon's phone vibrating in his pocket interrupt him..... He quickly pull out the phone from his pocket... He frown and curled his lips when he saw the caller....... "Your boyfriend never stop calling. Is he that impatient to put his granny hands on you..... "He quickly ended the call,smile and gave the phone to her..... "Does he know we getting back together.....?
"Excuse me.... "she scoffs... "There is no we getting back together.. I have a boyfriend and his name is Taiwo.. He alone will be my boyfriend..... "
"I like it when you make it sound like that. You and i know you don't feel anything for that dried up bird..
"And you think i feel something for you...? She cut in shapily....
He bug his eyes.... "You know there is something going on between us.. It's a feeling you can't deny.. You love me, that's why we are stuck here having this conversation...."
"We are stuck here because i thought i could find Manny here who turn out to be a kidnapped chief's daughter.. "She said back
"You love me, else you wouldn't have slept in my house the day you did.. Of course after all those long speech of moving away from me.. You can't leave me, can you?
Sharon suck her teeth. With a huff, she jut her chin..."I see you have that all figured out... Well you are wrong Pope, the only reason i slept in your house that night was because i thought i could find something linking you to Manny's disappearance... "
"What about the other nights, and the other nights.....?
"Go to hell.... "She retorted
Pope chulkled.... "Like it or not sweetheart, you are stuck with me and as bad as it sounds.. Am stuck with you too.....
"Don't flatter yourself..... You have no idea how i hate you.... "Sharon blared out irritated
"You mean love.... Okay since we are been sarcastic ... I hate you too."He said..then a quiet terrifying laugh followed........
"Burn to ashes Pope. "She said and push him aside, then she left the room...
Pope continue laughing and ran after her...

*****************************
"Still Furious....? Pope ask as he handled the steered with one hand.....
Sharon look out frol the windscreen still processing what has happened to her today...
"You do know frowning encroach wrinkles on your face and when you have those wrinkles. My God, you remind me of my great grand mother.. May her soul rest in peace.....
"You think this is a joke...? Sharon blared out..
"I think what is a joke...?
"Manny is missing, it's not funny anymore... Now am beginning to believe something must have happened to her.... "
"Oh God, Manny Manny Manny... "Pope muttered as he hit the steering... he almost lost concentration... Then he took back control......
"Relax.. The one driving "He said when he saw her quivered face.
Sharon quickly turn away her face......
"Look there is twenty million right there in there behind us. We can go wherever we want, buy whatever we want.. Just name it.... Because we are fu*king rich....."
Sharon jut her chin and shift her gaze to him.... "I don't want the money, i want something else....."
"What do you want....?
"I want you to help me find Manny.... "
