|Re: REVENGE (an Action Thriller) by C8t8(m): 1:18am On Aug 01|
'Come in,' Ann heard a deep voice call from within as she knocked on the door. She grabbed the door handle and pushed it downwards. The door opened with a slight creak. She walked into the living room and her eyes beheld the Chief, sprawled on a three-seater sofa, placed at the right hand corner of the room.
She walked to the nearest sofa at the left hand side and sat down. Chief Dapo rose from his position, sat down and turned to her. They were directly opposite each other. Ann sized him up. He was a dapper and plump man with a pot-belly whose presence was rather betrayed, even by the white under-shirt he was putting on. He looked like a man in his late fourties.
'That's an interesting performance out there, young lady,' the man said somehow mysteriously. 'I was told about your little nice display on your way here. How you whipped the sexually aroused guys nearly unconscious.'
Ann was bewildered. How did he knew? She decided to play him. 'What guys are you talking about? Did you......?' Ann stopped midway, realization dawning on her. 'You sent the guys to me?'
'Exactly! I needed to know how capable and competent you are for you to be working for me,' he said with a mischievous grin.
'I regard that as nonsense. What if I didn't put up a fight? They would have banged my destiny out,' fired Ann angrily.
'Thank God they didn't. So, let's set that matter aside. For a start, I'm giving you an assignment. But first of all, can you please remove that scary and imposing mask? You didn't use a mask while fighting my boys, why using it now?' Chief complained.
'What if I did? I'm sure the mask isn't holding your mouth to voice out whatever is it you wanted to say. And if you don't know, well, I don't like my time being wasted. So please go straight to the point!' said Ann.
'Well,' Chief Dapo sighed. 'There is this package you're going to help me get this very night. You will have to find a way of getting into the building where the package is kept, it is secured by dangerous men who won't hesitate to kill you if they see you there. There is a particular label on it which you can use to identify it. Wait a minute,' he said and bent his head, operating his Tablet device crazily.
A beep sounded on Ann's phone some minutes after.
As Ann proceeded to take her phone out and check the problem, Chief Dapo said, 'I've forwarded the address of the place, label of the package and other essential details to you. Study them carefully and don't forget you are to strike tonight.'
Ann started to ask him about what really was in the package but stopped herself, it wasn't her business.
'Are you sure you are up to this?' he enquired.
'Let's see how it goes,' Ann said with a slight smile.
'OK. I guess we are done here,' Chief Dapo said and fell back to the sofa. Ann bowed to him and left the house.
Her heart gave a quick jolt as she moved towards her car. Something is happening to her right now, she knew. And it must be in her base. She got in the car, started it and flew away, her speed ridiculously very high. Her base was two hours away.
The door gave way and Miri entered. She put the set of master keys in her pocket as she dashed towards a corner, gun pointed at the ceiling. She flipped on the light switch and looked round. Everywhere was neat and calm.
Happy but cautious, Miri made her way to the middle of the living room and peered at the table. Only some keys and T.V remote control was on the table. She looked round and noticed the door to a room. The room looked like it was recently left, so Miri made her way cautiously to the door.
She turned the door handle, it wasn't locked. She opened the door and peeped inside the room. The room was extremely dark. Miri's instincts sharpened and her alertness grew. Something was ominous about the room.
She was right, for she soon heard a computerized voice, 'Human presence detected. Say the passcode, repeated, the passcode in 10 seconds. 10...9...' Miri banged the door close and made her way out of the house, running quickly. Red, warning lights beeped at each corner of the house, like an ambulance van.
Damn it! She swore as she got out and closed the door. She should have known better, that it wouldn't be easy to break into an assassin's house.
By now, it was likely Ann had been notified about the break into her house. She looked at the house, cocked her gun, and whirled round, her supressed gun shooting at the security cameras in front of the house.
When she was done, she said aloud, 'I'll come back, prepared for you.' And she made her way to where her men were waiting for her in a parked car on the road, behind a cab. No sooner had she got in, than the car zoomed off.
Trees flashed past, as the car made its way through the long stretch of brown dusty road.
Ann was no longer at ease, like Achebe's Obi's family. Her suspicions were true. Someone had broken into her base. Her phone had given her the warning signal not long ago. She wished the person had entered the other room so that the security laser might get him or her. But she feared that if the intruder was the assassin she met the other day, she might have the tools to destroy the security. Ann half-prayed she didn't.
Did she just prayed? She thought. When last had she done that? She had lost total faith in God as she felt He wasn't there to protect her family from destruction. It wasn't like she hated Him, she just did not believe in Him anymore.
The car continued moving on amidst the bushy environment.
Ann's heart quickened as the car came to a tarred and busy road. She waited for the vehicles nearby to move away, she then veered onto the road and started speeding crazily away, just wanting to get home quickly.
Dangerously, she sped on the busy road, dodging and warding off traffic signals and warnings and nearly crushing a teenager at a zebra crossing. People in other vehicles cursed her as she drove along. Some traffic warders tried to runs her but themselves fled from the road to avoid been hit or crushed to death as she didn't stop or apply brakes at seeing them.
Suddenly, police cars sirens greeted her from behind. Ann was sure the police was after her and soon confirmed it when she saw some police vehicles coming from afar. She knew it was the traffic warders she had driven past that alerted the police about her crazy driving. 'Stupid individuals!' she cursed.
She looked at the rear-view mirror again. She was still far from them, but they were coming closer. Their vehicles were faster than hers.
This wasn't going to be a good thing, Ann thought angrily.
To be continued
Ann is in deep trouble!!
