The Bodyguard - Episode 26

By Tisa Phiri


Ackim.......

I was lost in my thoughts thinking about my life. Indeed the loss of my memory was affecting me , each day that past l would hope and wish l knew who l was. It wasn't easy living a blank life , did l even have Parents? or maybe friends ? I wondered. How was it that no one ever bothered to look for me at the hospitals or file in a missing person report?

I felt sad with the fact that maybe l wasn't such a good person in my previous life, maybe no wonder l had been having wired dreams about my past , l thought.

I had been in my room most of the day since l had an encounter with a coloured girl. Jane even apologised for making her leave though she insisted if she was that important to me the lady wouldn`t have left me..I hated the feel that Jane could be right , but then whatever the case, Anyone who showed signs of knowing me was actually important at that period of my life.

"Who am l ?" I whispered to myself, looking at the ceiling board as l lay back on my bed.

I heard a soft knock on my door and l responded after the second one..

"come in !"

James came in..

"Hey man , whats up ?"

"Hey " l answered sitting up ,

" you are back early?" l asked him as he sat next to me on the bed.

"Yes l was told we will have a visitor this evening so l had to rush back" he explained.

"who is that ? family ?" I asked not really interested in meeting any more strangers. As it was l was living with people l didn't even know and everyone else l had been seing in those months were strangers.

"I dont know really" he smiled.

"But l have been told to prepare myself , so l came to inform you to do the same."

"Prepare ? " I asked suprised.

" well it must be an important person indeed. so are we supposed to wear suits or something ?" I asked with a chuckle.

James started laughing softly,

"l hate suits" he said.

"Yeah l too, you have no idea" l answered as we laughed again.

"Guys come on its 18: 30 already , please get ready we dont want you looking like general workers in the mine this evening" we heard Dr Mwamba call out to us.

" Hurry dad and uncle !" Maya screamed excitedly as she passed holding a comb from the bathroom.

I wondered what was going on cause the women had prepared different dishes that evening but with the shouting l couldn't ask any further questions. All l was told is to dress moderately.

I took a quick shower and wore some soft jeans and a plain grey short sleeved shirt, its all l could think of besides the t-shirts..

I walked out with sandles and before l could go further Maya came screaming ,

"no no no! uncle no sandles please, put on your black shoes" she instructed seriously.

"You ought to look good" she smiled ,

" like the way Will Smith looked when going for a date in that movie Snitch" she told me grabbing my hand back to my room.

"Easy miss" l laughed as she pushed me back and opened my closet to get my shoes.

" There you go" she told me placing the shoes before me.

I shook my head and wore my socks as she ran outside.

" she's here!' she jumped when we heard the car hoot outside the gate.

"She`s here ?" I wondered shaking my head as l put on my shoes.

A couple of minutes later l walked out to join the family by the table and in the passage l saw Maya coming in , my heart skipped when l saw her holding a lady`s hand.

She stepped in and for a moment l was motionless , the lady from town in a long dress that outlined what l thought was the perfect shape, her hair pushed to one side making her look like she just came from one of the holly wood movies. I wasnt sure what puzzled and amused me the most, the fact that she looked like a goddess or that l had a chance to ask her about my life.

"What is he doing here ?" I heard her ask almost in a whisper. Maya shook my hand,

" uncle Will, meet my friend" she said smiling ,

"her name is Paula. Paula , this is my Uncle Will" she added looking at her.

" Oh l see, Will" she said casually. if l knew her l would say she was teasing me or something.

"Hey!" l finally said extending my hand to greet her.

"you are welcome Paula?" l said almost like asking if l said it right .

"It is" she smiled weakly as she shook my hand..

Maya cleared her throat and l let go of Paula`s hand. I had not realised l was still holding her soft hand.

"well people lets go have some dinner then we can all catch up later" she announced as she took Paula by hand. I tagged along in silence and l saw Paula look back at me the expression of her face l couldn't figure out , but whatever it was surely was against me.

We sat down to eat after Paula was introduced to all of us by Dr Mwaba. She told her about Mwamba who was out for some school tournaments, and all this while l watched in silence. Paula`s quick glances at me made me feel uncomfortable like l had done something wrong.

We had our dinner which l barely felt the taste cause I wasn't at ease , thankfully Dr Mwaba and Maya kept the conversations going asking Paula what she did and where she lived. She explained about her father and some mining business but my heart was longing for her to say something about me.

Without warning l spoke up ,

" so do you know who l a'm ?" I asked blankly and in a high tone.

"well, l cant help but feel you know me from somewhere and l want to know now. Why not get to it and tell me already" I shrugged with a face.

I saw Paula startle and swallowed hard.

"Am am am sorry , excuse me" she said standing up to leave the table after she was quite for some seconds, she ran out to the veranda at the back.

Dr Mwaba and her husband gave me a sharp look and Maya ran out to Paula looking at me with anger.

"What ?" I asked

"did l say something bad ?" I asked shrugging.

The Bodyguard - Episode 27

By Tisa Phiri

Dr Mwaba and her husband gave me a sharp look and Maya ran out to Paula looking at me with anger.

"What ?" I asked

"did l say something bad ?" I asked shrugging.

" I mean she's been looking at me like am some sort of bad person and l couldn't take it any more." l spoke honestly.

"Well Will, you should have asked politely not the way you did" they told me. Dr Mwaba came closer to me..

"listen my dear. I understand you want to find yourself again but you cant just scream at a woman like that, you could have at least waited until we finished eating and then asked in a gentle way, plus you have to understand that lady didnt know you would be here. I invited her so that you can have an opportunity to ask her about yourself" she outlined gently.

I wiped my mouth , realising what l had just done ,

"you are right that didnt come out well, am sorry" l apologised.

" I just want to know who l'm" l sighed sadly.

"I understand my dear" Dr Mwaba told me..

"now do the right thing" she patted my back.

"Maya come over here!" she called her daughter as she and her husband walked out. Maya came to me and whispered ,

"go on uncle do like you always tell me to when l make a mistake" she eyed me and left to the other room.

I felt so ashamed, but l had to go out and face her. I cleared my throat as l stood behind her, she had her back on me as she looked at the garden.

"Am sorry, l behaved badly in there" l managed to say ,

"its just that l .."

"You lost your memory?" she turned and asked, cutting my statement short.

"Yeah" l nodded my hands in the pockets. she looked at my hands.

"well at least you have not forgotten the habit of putting your hands in the pockets especially when you are nervous" she told

me with a weak smile.

I looked at my hands ,

"oh that. At least am now aware about one thing about myself" l told her shly.

"I feel relaxed this way," l agreed standing next to her and looked at the gardens too.

"Am sorry l didnt know you lost your memory, Maya just told me and l didnt even realise that yesterday" she scoffed sadly.

"Its okey," l answered ,

"it's not your fault" l told her sitting on the garden chair near by.

"So you don't remember anything at all ?" She asked looking at me.. "No , nothing except that l woke up in the hospital three months ago and was just told that l was involved in an accident. I cant even remember my real name" l explained as she pulled a chair and sat next to me.

"Maya named me Will" l told her with a giggle ,

"according to her l have some features of Will Smith, the American actor"

She started laughing. I looked at her perfect white sharp teeth and felt relaxed , there was something about her that made me feel comfortable at the moment.

"Well that's a good one" she sighed rubbing her hand on the knee ,

" your name is Ackim" she told me after a couple of seconds of silence.

"I know who you are , l lived with you for some time. " she explained. "We were together when the accident happened but l was also out of conscious for a couple of days , so l dont really know what happened afterwards , only that you pushed me out of the car before it blew into flames. You saved my life life" she added.

"Wow ! that's something" l smiled. "Ackim. It sounds like my name for sure. So we were friends or colleagues or something ?" I asked her.

" Friends" she she told me looking straight at me ,

"good friends and you were working for me and my father too"

"What was it l did as my work ?"

"You were my bodyguard" she answered.

"Oh l see , am sure l enjoyed following you around" l teased her with a laugh.

"Yeah, something like that" she responded not really letting me on on my job thing.

"You were a soldier before so you did a good job" she assured me. she went on to tell me about me being in the army as a commando and that l was held captive in Congo. For hours she told me about lots of things about my job and why l was hired to protect her. she even told me l had a family but that l didn't get to find them after my return. she mentioned that she somehow managed to find them through someone l hired and that my mother was in the hospital.

All this while l listened like l was watching someone else`s life. It all didnt make sense but at least l was glad l knew who l was, though l couldn't remember.

By the time we finished talking it was almost 23 hours and Dr Mwaba insisted Paula spent a night at the house. she refused but we all insisted.

"You just told me someone is after your life so l also feel its safer you dont drive out alone in the night" l told her. she shook her head ,

"its alright people l'll be fine l promise. It's just that l have to see someone tomorrow morning and head back home before 7 am."

"Well then let me drive you to your hotel then l will get a cab back here" l stepped forward.

"Good idea Will " James responded ,

"at least she will be safe with you " he added..

They all said their good byes and l walked with Paula to the car. She looked at me and held my hand as she handed me the keys ,

"you were always a gentle man" she smiled

" Thank you."

"You are welcome" l smiled back at her. we drove to Protea Hotel as l asked her some questions about my mother.

"I appreciate your help to my family" l told her when l parked the car.

" If you can show me where she is l would love to see her as well" i added..

"Of course, shes dying to see you too" she smiled not getting out of the car.

" well then," l sighed handing her the key.

" will see you at the hospital tomorrow" l told her.

"Sure thing" she answered and l got out of the car and walked to open the door for her. she stepped out holding her dress, stepping on it and lost some balance but l was quick to hold her her up.

she stood so close to me and l felt my heart beating rapidly. she smiled as her scent clouded my mind making my legs go stiff. she moved her hand on my chest and whispered softly.

" I wish you could remember who l am Ackim." she sighed tears filling her eyes.

" I missed you" she added letting go of me and rushing to the entrance.

I watched her as she walked past the door and she looked back at me for some time before walking right in. something in me moved but l hard no idea what it was.

I crossed the road and booked a taxi home. My head was pounding seriously, I had taken in so much information for a day and l needed some serious sleep to accumulate it all.

The Bodyguard - Episode 28

By Tisa Phiri

Ackim.....

I thought after getting home that night l would sleep and rest my mind. well, l was wrong because l kept on turning in my bed , my body was tired but my mind was so active. I couldn't get over the feel of Paula close to me.

"What is wrong with me ?" l questioned myself loudly.

she was supposed to be my boss from what she told me ,but then l wondered why she stood so close to me. she seemed to like me more than she had mentioned. However, l figured if we had something going on maybe she could have told me..

By the time my eyes closed off it was almost morning and an hour later my phone rang. I woke up with a start , it was the alarm l had set. I picked it up and found a text from Paula. Thankfully l gave her my line so she contacts me to go see my mother at the hospital..

"am on my way, hope you are ready." the text read.

" shit !" I jumped out of my bed , l was so late. I took a quick shower and before l could finish dressing up Maya walked in to inform me Paula was outside.

"Oh God, tell her am finishing up" l responded as she smiled. she drew closer to me..

"see Uncle Will , l told you she`s gorgeous and she likes you too."

"well l like her because she knows who l am" l said plainly.

I saw her wink.

" mmmmmmm whatever" she shook her before leaving the room.

I made my bed as was my trend because l never left my room untidy no matter how late l was , and Maya always teased me about it..

" you act like a woman with your neatness and order uncle" she would tell me.

I grabbed a bun from the kitchen as l ran out to join Paula..

"See you guys!" l shouted as l walked out. I had told the family about everything Paula told me and Dr Mwaba and her husband encouraged me as always to take one day at a time.

"stressing your self will just hinder the recovering of your memory" she told me.

" We just hope your mother gets better soon.."

"Helo morning there ?" I called out to Paula as l sat in the passenger seat. The softness and comfort of the seat was exceptional.

"Sorry am late, l coudn't sleep last night"

" well that makes the two of us" she answered , turning the ignition.

"But you feeling okey ?" she asked as she joined the road..

"I have a slight headache, but am sure it will go away soon" l said biting on the bun.

"mind having a bite" l asked mockingly.

"um no l will pass" she smiled shrugging her shoulder...

"Thank heavens !" l exclaimed raising my hands ,

" l wasn't ready to share" l teased her and she laughed loudly the sound of her voice pricking through my heart and making me feel tickles in my stomach.

she sighed at last,

"some things never change" she whispered looking at me as her laugh faded.

"you were always jovial and would make each moment exciting" she told me without turning to look at me..

"Well l could do it over again if l have to see and hear your laughter" l said without even thinking. she swayed her head and looked at me for a couple of seconds and looked back on the road.

"So ?" I asked changing the subject ,

"are you married ? or engaged ?" I asked as l wiped my hands removing some cramps from outside the window.

She hesitated a bit and finally answered.." No, none of those but am in love with someone." she added quickly..

"Yeah of course" l said, not sure of myself whether l felt jealousy or disappointed. we were almost at the hospital and l felt nervous as we walked to the wards. I had no idea who my mother was so l feared to walk in to her and show l didnt know who she was. Paula told me my sister was around too..

She led the way and l looked at her long legs as she walked her slim fit skirt giving out her skin color. she walked me to some private ward.

"Hey" she smiled at the woman laying in bed a machine connected to her and a drip of water running into her arm slowly.

The woman smiled and turned to look at us. she frowned as she saw me stand next to Paula.

" Ackim ?" she whispered as she slowly sat up careful enough not to move the equipment connected to her.

"Is it really you my son ? Oh thank you my Jesus!" she shouted extending her hands to me. I was still for a moment not really sure whether to go to her or not. she was a total stranger to me and though l could see she was really glad to see me. she even shed tears.

"Come on Ackim go to your mother " Paula whispered to me ,

"atleast don't show her so much doubt."

" Yeah" l nodded, smiled and went to hug her. she held me and cried for some minutes.

" I knew you were alive somehow my son. I missed you so much and l wish your father was here to see this day" she cried still holding me tight. My hands were down as she held me , but after some minutes l held her back and rubbed her back.

" It's okey" l managed to tell her. I withdrew feeling a bit uncomfortable. she looked at me and she could tell l wasn't being myself.

"Am sorry mother, l have not told you Ackim lost his memory from the accident" Paula interrupted , saving me from the moment.

"He doesnt remember anything about himself, not even his name or family" she explained. My mother started crying again and Paula sat close to her and comforted her.

" It's okey please you have to calm down you are still not well, the doctor said it might take time but there's a possibility he might recover his memory. You dont have to worry now, your son is alive and this is what is important. " she whispered.

"Oh no poor thing" she frowned looking at me.

" Just when you find some peace again you won't remember a thing. My Jesus please intervene for him " she whispered tears in her eyes.

I felt bad she was crying so l sat next to her on the chair and held her hand.

"It's okey mother, whatever the case you will help me get to know myself by telling me my childhood stories for example" l told her trying to smile.

She smiled widely ,

"you were always the gentle one my son , the strongest of all and most popular Commando youth of the camp" she added with a laugh. I smiled back as l listened to her talk, she was amazing. she told me about my other two brothers and my sister. she explained her condition and how Paula came to help her. After some time the Doctor asked us to let her rest and we left her. I told her l would visit her every day and she was glad.

From the hospital Paula took me to my sister and she too was so happy to see me. she talked a lot and started telling me all versions of our childhood , how l unfairly treated her but would defend her from boys from her primary school as l was in high school back then and many other things I had no idea of. I had enough for a day and by the time we drove out of the lodge she was staying at , my head was pounding making me fail to focus. I pretended for some time but Paula noticed l wasn't well.

we had barely gone for a kilometer when l fall back in my seat, everything became dark as I lost consciousness.

I woke up in my bed at home Dr Mwamba sat close to me.

" what happened ?" I asked her looking around. Paula and Maya standing on the side.

"You collapsed and l asked Paula to bring you here , am sure the stories put a stress on your brain as you were trying so hard to remember things. How do you feel now ?" she asked me..

"Still feeling some headache" l answered. she handed me some pain killers and l took them.

"you have to get some rest " she said as she stood to go. Maya held my hand and smiled,

"get well soon Uncle Will."

"Thank you angel" l told her making her smile the more.

Paula turned to leave too but l called her back. "Mind if you stay back with me?" l asked her.

"No" she answered walking back.. "sit here" l told her patting the bed beside me.

"You scared me out there Ackim" she spoke after a moment

"Am sorry l didn't mean to, Its just that everything seems so awkward. My own life sounds like a story for someone else. I feel lost and it hurts sometimes, it's like am living in a strange land where everything and everyone is a stranger. Imagine I cannot even remember my mother. Poor her, she was so happy and yet sad. I couldn't even do a thing to help her fell better" I shook my head sadly.

She frowned

"stop talking like that Ackim you are not alone , there are people who love you and they would do eveything to make you feel okey. Just look at how Dr Mwaba and her family treat you like family , they adore you like you are part of their family and your mother too, she is so happy to see you with or without your memory."

"Sure" l responded

"it's hard to feel attached to her. Atleast i have grown fond of this family too. They are the only people who made me feel good about myself. You as well, thanks for everything" l added holding her hand.

She smiled warmly as she put her hand on mine.

"see we are all here for you."

I couldn't help but fall in love with her, she was so sweet and gentle. But then, l remembered she told me she was in love with another person and l withdrew my hand. I had to respect her and give her some distance. Her presence was making me loose my mind.

"Excuse me, l need to grab some sleep if you dont mind." l told her fearing l could take action in the wrong direction , her skin was calling out to me and with every minute that passed l felt my control running down. She smiled before leaving ,

"will check on you tomorrow then, Get well soon Ackim."

The Bodyguard - Episode 29

By Tisa Phiri

Paula....

A week later in Chongola, I had been staying in the hotel visiting the hospital but of course the major reason was the fact of me seeing Ackim everyday.

He's headache had lestened but he still couldn't remember a thing, the most exciting thing though was that he just had this tender look and gentleness towards me. I loved the way he looked at me and talked. I never got to tell him about us, for a reason, i wasn't comfortable telling him I felt like it was just right for him to remember things on his own.

He was still in a State of confusion and for me that was an excuse enough not to push him to love me. Though I trully desired him.

I sat at the restaurant waiting for him one afternoon, he just called to meet me up something to do with George. Ackim had told me he had been following him since he came from the police cells. According to him, he had gone to see him some time back when he recovered from the accident wounds.

"Even if I didn't know him I knew he was not up to any good." Ackim told me.

"now that you have given me an hint about my past and this man, I now want to finish my mission and make sure I protect you and your father. It's my job after all" he added..

Well here I was waiting for him to show up and I was getting worried since it had been over 30 minutes since he called me but he wasn't showing up.

I looked at my phone, it was past 18 hours and I started panicking.

I tried to call him but nothing he's phone went unanswered.

Another 30 minutes passed and I was almost loosing my mind. I got up, grabed my hand bag and went to my car. I had to go look for him at his place.

"Hello, good evening?" I greeted James and Dr Mwamba as I walked to them in their yard. They Sat on garden chairs on the veranda.

"Evening my dear" they both answered with smilling faces.

"Is Ackim home?" I asked without sitting down.

" I had an appointment with him but am worried he didn't show up" I explained..

"No my dear" Dr Mwaba answered "he left over an hour ago and he has not returned since."

"Oh my God!" I frowned.

"he never does that, where could he be? I tried calling him but he is not picking up the calls."

Worried, I went back to the car, after some minutes of thinking I decided to drive to river side.

"maybe he went to George's place and something happened there" I shivered at the thought.

"oh my God, please let him be safe " I prayed silently.

"he has to be okey, not this time my God, he should be okey"

My phone rang and I quickly picked it.

"Halo Paula it's me" Ackim's mother answered.

"are you with Ackim?" She asked .. "I have been trying his line but he isn't answering."

"Um no mam , but don't worry I will tell him you called am not with him right now." I responded.

I didn't want to tell her what was happening. she was recovering well over the week, the Doctors assured us she would be discharged the next day. I was glad Ackim was trying to be close to his mother and sister. Even though I could tell it wasn't easy for him.

He had been insisting he wasn't really attached to them both but with me he said he actually felt more than comfortable.

I was lost in thoughts as I drove to river side, when something caught my attention as I indicated to turn right, the road heading to the plots..

I saw Kakoma and another guy, who's face looked familiar but I couldn't remember where I had seen him. I watched their car move ahead of me and I reduced the speed on mine so to avoid being spoted.

"What are these guys doing here?" I wondered as I watched them park outside George's wall fence.

Patiently I waited for them to come out. I was certain something wasn't right as they came out in a rush. George buttoning his shirt as they rushed to the car.

"let's go! now!" he shouted excited.

I ducked in the vehicle. luck for me I had changed the car, The X5 was at the garrage for servicing and I asked dad to send another vehicle for me.

Slowly and steadly I drove behind them as they turned left on the Kitwe road, heading in the Kitwe direction.

I felt my blood rise as they turned to some bushy place. Grabbing my phone, I dialled Dr Mwamba and informed her about my suspicions .

"please tell the police to follow me am sure these guys are up to no good." I told them before hanging up.

"Please Paula, just wait for the police don't go after them alone." she begged sounding really worried.

"No I won't sit and wait Dr it might be too late for Ackim" I told her cutting the line.

I concentrated and held the steering tight as I drove through some pot holes on the small path. I could see the new built filing station far on my right.

A few minutes later, I noticed a shed in front of me and the car I was following parked outside.

I got the gun from my bag and headed out. I had been walking around with it for the past weeks. I wasn't ready to be caught unaware. I had to prpare myself all the time.

I was walking slowly to the shed when I felt a grip on my neck..

" drop the gun you stupid brat!" i heard George's voice echo in my ears.

I threw it down quickly and he pushed me to the ground.

"well, how you made things easy for me" he smiled wickedly.

" I was supposed to call you on your boyfriend's line so you come, now see how God can provide. Things are just falling in place for me" he teased..

"Where is Ackim you ingret!" I shouted furious.

He laughed aloud irritating me the more..

" well, let the party begin!" he told Kakoma and the other guy.

"take her inside" he ordered.

I was lifted and taken inside the shed, it looked like an old warehouse. it wasn't being used for something at all, It was full of wrecked cars on one side and empty everywhere else.

"Paula!" I heard Ackim's voice "what are you doing here?" He shouted.

"you should leave her alone" he spat looking at the now smiling George as they tied me across where Ackim was tied.

"No way!" George answered rudely

"she's the reason both of you are here" he told him.

" so now since all my efforts to get one of you at a time has failed, today is a blessed day for me because I will put an end to all this." he spat proudly.

"So any questions before your sentence?" He mocked sitting in between us. I looked at Ackim, he had some cuts on his head and blood was coming out. My heart reached out to him.

"he needs to see a Doctor. Please let him go" I pleaded crying as I saw him looking weak. It was obvious they had given him a serious beating. knowing Ackim, I knew he put up some fight I could see two guys standing near the entrance, they were swollen on their faces and one of them even had a deep cut on his arm.

"Well, he's better off dying from bleeding because what awaits him is worse." George answered me . "Whatever happens here, you two are dying today." His facial expression showed he was being serious and I felt hopeless.

"Let me tell you how the story begun" he announced leaning on the chair he sat on.

"at least you have to know before you go to your resting places" he added as he pulled up his trousers wiping his hairly legs and looking up at me with a wide smile.

The Bodyguard - Episode 30

By Tisa Phiri


Ackim....

"Meet me at the usual place" I told Paula on the phone. I had just seen George and overheard him plan to attack that night. He was instructing some guys on how to capture her from the hotel.

"I don't want any mistakes this time around" he told them.

"luck for us that idiot lost his memory. we have to act before he can remember who we are." George explained as they sat at some drinking place. I wore a hood and some black sheds as a cover. They did not noticed I followed them to their meeting.

One thing puzzled me the most. The woman I saw at Georges house who introduced herself as his mother was the one pushing his son to kill Paula. I clearly head heŕ insist that that day they should make sure Paula was dead.

"listen up guys, George went on, should that soldier show up anywhere we all should not hesistate to take him down, this time for good" he added as they all nodded in agreement..

They were 6 in total, one of them apart from George looked familiar but unfortunately I couldn't remember who he was.

Sudenly I saw them leave and I followed them, unknown to me one one them saw me as I made the call to Paula. I had taken off the hood thinking they all left. I had planned on warning her and get her out of the hotel before they did.

I cut the line as they came menacingly and surrounded me. George had left and now I had to face 4 guys.

"Well, well look who decides to stick his nose in our business again" they shouted, one of them wagging a belt made of a strong rubber.

I knew I had to fight them or I would die. As they charged towards me, I grabed one of them and hit him hard on his face and he staggered backwards. I fought two other guys and when they noticed I was defeating them as individuals. They all charged forward at once, hitting and punching me from all directions.

My furry rose as I fought back making sure my blows left a great impact on them. Grabbing the rubber belt from the tall guy who had it, I whipped them so hard and they stood a step away. I went wild hitting and slashing as I over powered them.

It was surprising even for myself the way I fought then. I noticed one of them was the guy who had wanted to break in at Dr Mwaba's house.

I followed him first and gave him blows before the others could stand to fight back. It was almost 18 and getting dark, the people at the bar ran in all directions as the fight heated up, I was like a mad dog kicking and fighting with all I had.

With a crack I twisted the guy I identified and he fall down lifeless. I was still on him when I felt a sharp cut in my head and before I turned to look at where it came from, I blacked out.

When I woke up, I was tied to some pole in an abandoned warehouse. I tried to loosen up but the idiots did their job well.

The guy with a funny hair cut came forward and led others as they all hit me so hard I felt powerless. I spat blood and went dark again.

The time I came to, I saw George and his crew walk in.

He clapped his hands amazed,

"well now.. this is more like it.. the wounded buffalo has been tarmed " he teased placing his foot on my chest.

"You have to kill me first you fool!" I shouted..

"because if you don't, I swear to God I will cut off your head."

"Let's see how you do that soldier !' he shouted back..

"you are useless tied up. Besides, am now going to invite your pretty girl so she watches you die before I kill her myself" he added and started laughing loudly. I wondered what was him with his stupid laughter, it so much for to my nerves.

"I guess you have watched too much movies uh? You want to be the bad ass guy who threatens everyone and do all sorts of crazy things " I mocked him..

"but if you paid attention, you would notice the bad guys like you never make it to the end alive" I added sarcastically.

He came forward and slaped my face.

"you are dead meat my friend" he whispered near my face.

"say all you can cause today is the last of your miserable life" he spat looking straight at me.

Some other guy came and whispered some thing to him and I saw him smile happily.

"oh well today is indeed my day" he said as he went out side.

He came back a few minutes later with Paula held by two of his boys.

I shouted for him to leave her alone but he mocked me, saying she was the reason we both were there.

I felt bad and useless being tied up. my heart ached as i watched them tie her across where I was.

"I swear they will pay" I thought to myself. I wasnt going to let them harm her, not when I was still alive. I started looking around for something to help me loose myself.

George started explaining what he was calling the begining of the story....

"I lived a poor life with my mother and my elder brother" he started.. "that was some years back. our mother told us we both were born from different father's. My brother who is supposed to be your real step brother" he said looking at Paula.

"he's name is or can I say was? Gerrad" he went on..

"What are you saying you fool ?" Paula answered.

" you mean you are not even my brother?" She asked surprised..

"Yes actually" he responded folding his hands..

"You see i had to kill that fool cause he always thought he was more intelligent and clever. When our mother told us about who the father to Gerrad was. That is your father Paula," he paused.

" I knew if he was to find his father before me he would become rich over night as we all knew he had lots of money. Anyway, to cut the story short, i wanted his inherritance and i killed him but my mother thinks it was an accident.

I later on convinced mom to go confront Mr Benson and tell him I was his son. Since she also needed the money she agreed and we brided some doctor to forge a DNA test and blah! Am your brother!" he said rising his hands as he stood before us looking at our surprised faces.

"You are evil George" Paula snapped.

" your greedy is so vast it will lead you to your grave."

I watched him in silence my head was cracking with pain. I was almost screaming in pain but I couldnt show weakness at the moment.

"So now what followed?" He asked himself as he walked to and from.

"yeah I remember, then I started my plot to kill you. my only mistake was I wanted some quick cash so I damanded a ransom for your release when I sent some guys to kidnap you" he let a laugh..

"Mmmmhm it was wonderful how I used your workers to get to you. Remember Simon? And Shila? " he looked at Paula

I saw Paula's face frown

"what? You used those two?" she asked.

unfortuately for me everything was news cause I couldn't remember the people in question.

"Yes, yes" he agreed smiling

"Shila is my girlfriend and shes the one who drugged your drink before we got you then and she was my eyes there. Simon may he rest in peace, was my cousin and he did lots for me, for instance kill the guys this jerk left to guard my right hand man Kakoma after he kidnapped him, remember soldier?" He teased me popping his eyes at me, Istayed silent.

"Am sorry I have to kill you Ackim, It's nothing personal but you spoiled everything for me when you decided to play hero. A guy like you would save me better but since you are on the wrong team, guess I have no option."

He went on bragging about how he squandered the money he was always demanding, he mentioned his plans of taking over from Paula's father. Surely one could tell he was a lost cause, he harboured pure hatred towards Paula and her father.

He stepped out with his group later after he was done narrating his story. Some guy told him the police just past by the main road.

I took the opportunity to speak to Paula.

" i will get you out of here I swear on my life!" I assured her..

"Don't do anything stupid Ackim please " she told me crying.

" you are hurt and this maniac won't hesitate to kill you."

"if I don't do anything we are both dead" I whispered to her.

"this person is sick in the head." I shook my head.

"Ackim!" She called me..

"I love you" she told me without warning.

"You and i where were more than friends we both loved each other before the accident"

I smiled weakly.

" wow that's the best thing I have heard in this horrible day" I told her trying to smile widely..

"whatever the case, I have fallen for you all over again. I love you now Paula, am not sure about the past cause I can't remember but I know I love you still" I added with a smile..

I saw her cry and I was devastated. "am sorry we will never get to be together" she smiled whilst crying.

"No don't say that, we have not come all this way just to die like this, i will get us out of here." I said looking around. I needed a plan and I had to act fast.
