Kentuforchrist:No, I didn't. Wasn't chanced to post during the holidays. Damned busy!
It's also a sad thing for me to keep you guys hanging and keeping unfulfilled promises, but what could I have done?
The day I promised to post two episodes, I was typing one of the episodes when I slept off, stress, you know? While asleep, my younger sister desperate to play games on my phone deleted the whole unsaved post. When I woke up, well, what could I do? The post was soooo long and I was nearing the end of it when I drifted off.
I felt so discouraged that I didn't bother to type anything that day. Please bear with me...

Happy New Year guys
Chapter Twenty Two
Ann scaled the high wall effortlessly, making sure to avoid the electric wires on top of the fence. She landed on the other side and rolled expertly as she fell to prevent getting an injury. She tapped the device in her ears.
“Oyin,” she pronounced the Oyin like Hoe-yeen. “You can scale over, be careful of the electric wires!” she warned.
She then went behind a statue of a girl hawking what looked like oranges at the corner of the backyard. She squatted and squeezed herself into the little space at the back of the statue. Soon, she felt a shadow up and looked up to see Oyin at the top of the wall. She watched him as he dodged the security wires and landed but not as smartly as she did. He fell with a dull thud and he groaned. Ann quickly beckoned on him to come closer.
She connected to Henry. “Henry, we are in the compound now. Can you check if this way is clear enough for us to enter?”
“On it boss,” she heard Henry said. She heard the kpa-kpa-kpa sound of keyboards being typed. She really hoped this was worth it.
Miri proceeded to launch the vegetables in Shira's mouth when she heard a sound. A dull sound coming from the backyard like someone dropped from a wall. Of course, only she could hear the dull sound. She wondered what it was as she quickly dug out a rope from her pockets. She tied Shira to the foot of the dining table firmly and then dug a handkerchief into her mouth. She quickly snuck out of the dining room.
Her instincts were clearly working. She was sure the girls' accomplices had arrived into the compound. She walked into the kitchen which has its window facing the back of the compound directly. She glanced at the pot of soup on the cooker before walking to a corner of the huge kitchen where a stool was placed. She placed the stool against the window and climbed atop it. She could see the backyard clearly. At first, she sighted no one and then suddenly she saw a male body crouching behind the statue. It appeared the man wasn't alone behind the statue but she couldn't see who was beside him. She smiled and got down from the stool.
She walked out of the kitchen, past the tied girl in the dining area and walked to where she placed her iPhone on the dining table. As she picked the phone, a thought nibbled at her and she turned towards Shira. She walked up to her and she felt her pockets. Shira tried to struggle and Miri banged her right palm on her cheek, leaving her imprints on it. She then placed her left palm over Shira's mouth firmly and felt Shira's pockets with her left hand. She felt the shape of a phone. She reached into the pocket and brought out the phone. She then left Shira's presence l. She knew exactly what to do.
“Yes boss, that way is safe,” Ann heard Henry said.
“Ok,” she said and tapped Oyin. “Let's move,” she said and stood up. With head bowed, she dashed stealthily to the back door and entered. Oyin followed suit. They entered an opened room nearest to the back door and closed the door.
“I think we should contact Shira and make her know we're here,” Oyin said.
Ann nodded and handed a phone to him. “Call her, but be very quick. The phone isn't encrypted and I don't want the network provider to start recording the call.”
Oyin collected the phone and dialled Shira's number. The phone rang but wasn't picked. In the distance, the sounds of sirens got louder, meaning that the Minister and his stupid convoy was almost there. Ann grabbed the phone, switched it off and turned to Oyin. “Let me go and look for her,” Ann said.
“Do be careful,” she warned Oyin and stepped out of the room, closing date door after her firmly but silently.
Ann walked through the lit corridor stealthily, hiding and stepping out, hiding and continuing. She didn't possess enough knowledge of the house. It surprised her that there were no guards in the house. Maybe the Minister was not a fan of guards, she concluded. She soon got to what looked like the living room and her eyes dashed to the dining area. What she saw shocked her. Shira was there, taped and tied to the dining table. She was disappointed in Shira and she stood watching her for a moment. Angrily, she turned away, she wasn't going to be the one to untie her. Let her bear the brunt herself. How could she be careless to get caught. Suddenly it hit her, no guards were inside. Who could have done so? She was about to turn back to the living room when an enormous woman opened in front of her. Ann recognised her, she was the Minister's wife.
The woman looked shocked at seeing her and was about to open her mouth to scream when Ann jumped at her, knocking her heavy body down to the floor. She slapped the woman and reached for her pocket. She brought out her Glock and waved it at her. The woman's eyes bulged in fear.
“See, I can just kill you with a click of this ‘baby’. There are suppressors attached to it, so there would be no much noise and nobody would suspect. If you don't want me to kill you, you just have to do a simple thing. Are you with me?”
The woman's eyes were closed, twitching with fear. “Yes, I am.”
“Now, be a good girl and open those god-damned eyes. Yes, and sit up! Good! I want you to cooperate with me, if you don't want me to kill you. All I want you to do is simple. Just go to that tied girl over there,” she pointed to the dining area. Shira was looking at them already, slightly amused by the sight. “...and untie her,” Ann concluded.
The woman stood up like a zombie and waddled in fear to Shira and untied her. Shira stood up quickly and pushed her aside, causing her to fall onto the dining table.
“Tie her!” she heard Ann ordered and she pushed Mrs Jude down to the floor. She then tied her just as she herself was tied a while ago. Shira then walked up to Ann.
“Boss, please, please be careful. A fellow assassin is right in this house, waiting for you...she is aware of your presence already. She tied me up.”
“I thought as much,” Ann said. “You know what? Go down the corridor and meet Oyin in the last room or should I say the first room you will meet when you enter the corridor from the back. Get him and you both should leave this place immediately. I will handle this.” She watched as Shira left her presence. Who was this assassin? She thought as she left the living room.
Miri watched as the last person left the living room from her phone. She knew what to do. She exited the app and dialled the Minister's personal number. The sirens were louder now, hinting he was near home. He picked up almost immediately, the background loud. Miri wasn't ready for pleasantries, not at this time.
“Dude, where are you?” she addressed him as if he was a commoner.
He sighed and replied, “I'm almost home.”
“Good. Now order your drivers to turn around and leave this area. You have other far away houses of yours you can go to, don't you?”
“Yes, but why?”
“Don't question me. Your killers are right in the house now, waiting for you to come home and then kill you. So get out of this area and leave this place far behind to another place where we can plan how to get you out of the country.”
He was silent for a while, obviously scared. “How about my wife?” he suddenly voiced out.
“Well, she is not safe right now. But she will be fine. Be a good boy and leave okay?”
“And, find a way to get rid of those stupid securities with sirens. Do not call attention to yourself. Good day and have a safe trip.” She hung the call.
She lingered on for some minutes to hear the sirens fade away before she left the secluded place for the living room. Time for exercise.
Shira and Oyin ran to the front part of the car he and Ann brought and entered in. They closed the door and rolled up the glass windows. Oyin handed Shira the connecting device and she lodged it in her ear. They watched the movement of the convoys on the other side.
“I'm just worried for the boss,” Shira voiced out.
“Dom't worry, she is boss,” Oyin encouraged.
“I know, but that lady isn't ordinary. She has crazy strength and uncanny instincts.”
“Well…,” Oyin was cut short by a startled shout from Shira.
“Oyin, look at those vehicles, they are turning back the way they came.”
“What!” Oyin screamed as he saw what was happening.
Shira screamed, “Call the boss!”
Oyin hurriedly brought out his phone from the car's glove compartment where he had earlier placed it and dialled the boss's number, panicking.
Ann couldn't believe her ears. The fading sound of sirens told her it was true.
“Follow those vehicles, I'll be joining you soon.” She hung the call. Ann was worried, she was sure the invisible assassin in the house did that. She didn't know exactly where the assassin was in the huge house and she knew she couldn't just leave the building without the assassin attacking her.
Groaning, shy suddenly felt a presence behind her and sure enough, when she turned, there was the female assassin standing in front of her, lips curved in a wicked smile, arms folded and looking at her. Ann recognised the lady immediately, it was the same lady she met at Chief Martin's house the other day.
“You?” she pointed a finger at her.
Miri smiled. “Yes me. And good that you recognise, because I don't have the plans of letting you leave this place alive today.”

Chapter Twenty Three
The place was gradually darkening as clouds chased each other across the sky. The atmosphere turned cool as gentle breeze began to manipulate the branches of surrounding trees and plants, causing them to dance a forced, glory dance. Birds chirped and flew in huge flocks across the sky, eager to get to their comfortable nests.
Sara pried open the pot of beans bubbling on the stove and flung the cover away as it stung her palm. She watched as the beans danced in the hot pot. She then reached for a bottle where she stored salt, opened it and sprinkled some salt into the beans. She lowered the intensity of the flames and proceeded to move out of the makeshift kitchen, a blocked off section of the one room apartment. She glanced at her sleeping one-year old son who was snoring peacefully on a mat. She dashed out of the house and rushed to the back where she had earlier hung her clothes to dry. She grabbed the still wet clothes - she washed them only an hour ago - and hurried back inside the house. She flung the clothes on the lone chair in the room and was about to go back to the kitchen when the faint sound of a motor vehicle came from the untarred road that swept across the front of the house. Curiously, as it was rare for cars to come to that small settlement, she dashed out and watched as two big cars passed by, coated in red dust, leaving a trail of dust behind. Other inhabitants of the settlement were outside too, amused and bemused by the rare sight. Children with protruded bellies, enormous heads and thin limbs ran about, feeling excited about the cars.
After the cars had passed, few minutes later, Sara and others flew out again to behold another red-coated car, speeding crazily. As it zoomed by, Sara noticed a pistol in the hands of the male driver as he manipulated the steering wheel. Her heart piked in fear.
“Guns!” she screamed and turned back into the house, locking the door firmly after her.
Ann glared at Miri before dodging the blow that came her way effortlessly. Her mind was not on the fight, she wanted to get out of the house and contact Oyin and Shira. She wouldn't let the killing of the Minister slip by her fingers, her first major assignment.
Miri could see she wasn't ready to enjoy the fight and was none the happiest. This would be so easy more than she thought.
“Let's see how you will be able to kill him. Your men can't even get him,” Miri taunted.
“That is none of your fucking business!” yelled Ann as she dodged another punch. She threw a blow which Miri blocked easily.
“Is that all you've got?” Miri sneered.
Ann didn't reply, she was frustrated. She thought of what to do. Suddenly, she brought out her Glock, cocked it and pointed it at Miri. “Leave me this moment! I'm not ready for you!”
Miri marvelled at how quick she brought out the pistol as she took two steps back, arms raised. “Easy baby girl.”
“Get out of my way!” Ann screamed at her and Miri stepped aside. Ann began to walk backwards towards the front door, gun pointed at Miri. When her back hit the door, she quickly turned, opened the door and shut it behind her. She walked right into the guards and without thinking, she opened fire and gunned them down. Soon, ten bodies littered the ground. Ann ran to the gate, opened it and dashed out. She started running, not knowing where exactly she was going. She stopped after several minutes of running and tapped the device in her ear. She connected to Henry.
“Henry, are you there?”
“Good, I want you to find a way to get into the NASCAO server. I want you to trace the movement of Oyin and Shira and the Minister's car they are following.”
“What happened?” an alarmed Henry asked.
“Another brilliant assassin is working for the Minister. She directed him to leave this vicinity far behind as we're waiting for him at home. Oyin and Shira is on his trail and I don't have any idea where they are presently.”
“On it,” he declared with a pained tone.
“Good, contact me when you are done. Be fast about it.” She disconnected from him.
She tried connecting to either Oyin or Shira but they weren't reached. Sighing, she continued running along the empty road, her eyes and ears looking around for any sign of being followed.
Suddenly, her eyes caught the sight of a parked car beside the road. She stopped running and walked over to the car. In the front part of the car was a man and a lady, smooching, kissing and hugging each other at intervals. Disgusted, Ann brought out her Glock and tapped it against the window. They unlocked from their entanglement and as they saw the pistol in her hands, their previous angered expression changed to that of fear.
“Open this door this minute!” thundered Ann.
The lady who was nearest to the door quickly opened it.
“I want both of you to get out now!”
They scrambled out of the car, looking bedraggled and terrified. Ann hopped into the car, closed the door, turned the ignition switch and without sparing a glance, she zoomed off, leaving the confused couple yelling and screaming.
Oyin stopped the car few metres to the compound the two cars earlier entered. He nudged Shira.
“Since we've got no words from the boss, I think it is best we go inside.”
“I wouldn't say that it's a nice idea but we have no choice. So, we move!”
“Let's move!” Oyin said and opened his own door. Shira did the same.
They walked smartly to the front of the compound. Oyin tucked his pistol under his belt, breathed in deeply and rapped on the gate.
