Ann wrung her hands vigorously in the soapy water in the sink. She then turned on the sink tap and rinsed her hands. Then she opened the barricade in the sink preventing the water from going down and the water gushed away, down the underground pipes. She took a towel hanging on a metallic pole and dried her hands. She then proceeded to walk out of the laboratory.
She took a look at the clock in the laboratory before going out. It was past four in the morning. After she had gotten the package, she had driven away, narrowly missing the police vehicles that came through the other way. She had gone to Chief Dapo's village, masked, and had delivered the package to an extremely delighted Chief. Then she had driven back to her base. When she got home, it was already about nineteen minutes after three. Then she had proceeded to pack and rearrange some materials. There was no way she was sleeping in that place tonight, and she meant it.
She walked to her room, took her mask and put it on her face. She then took her tablet device. She then put a video call through to Chief. He answered at the third attempt, yawning into the camera. He frowned at her, and then broke into smiles.
'Ha ha. So it was you? You were calling with an unregistered identity! Anyways, I'm still happy about that package you successfully got. You don't know how important it is to me,' he grinned from ear to ear.
Ann didn't bat an eyelid. Instead, she said, 'I got the money.'
'Yes. Why wouldn't I give the money? You deserved it!'
She continued watching through her mask as he jawed away. Abruptly, she cut in, 'Chief, I need to leave here today!'
'Why?' she watched the Chief's brows curved into a frown.
'Some people are trailing me! Someone broke in here yesterday but fled after the security effects I put in place started working.'
'When you knew that there are security measures put in place, why are you still looking for a new place?'
'Don't be stupid, chief. The measures can be destroyed. And besides, the person is an assassin after me!' Ann said.
The chief frowned at her. He then opened his mouth. 'OK. I have this new house I just finished building. But I need to register it before you can live in it.'
'Leave that aspect. How can you expect an assassin to be living in a house registered with the government? Don't worry, I know how to go about it. Just forward me the details of the house.'
'okay then,' the chief's tone suggested he was not in any way happy at the prospect of giving out his new house.
Ann smiled under the mask. He knew not what he has put himself in, she thought. ' one more thing Chief,' she said. 'I need helping hands. Three to be precise. One must be good in computers, another in gun usage and the other in hand combat.'
'But how am I to get these?' Chief said tartly.
'That's left to you. But don't forget everything I asked for must be complete today. Unless you want to forget about me working for you,' said Ann.
'I will try to,' the chief grunted.
'Please do,' she replied. 'Any other thing?' she questioned.
'yeah!' the chief's eyes shone in excitement. 'It's time for vengeance. Time to get rid of my enemies. We will work the way up. Now the first target is the little devil who...'
Ann cut in angrily. 'Chief, can you just go straight to the point?'
'Forgive me. I was carried away. The first target I want you to help me kill is the Nyar State Minister of Finance, Jude Caleb!'
'Consider it done. Good day,' Ann replied and hung the call.
Chief Williams' House
Chief Williams paced round the sitting room furiously. He is back. The devil is back. He had always known and feared it, that he was not dead as Hakim claimed years ago. Now he is back, definitely for revenge. And to think that he is also vying for the position of a governor in a remote secret party helped in increasing his anger. He knew who the person would first go after, Jude, his friend and state minister of finance. He would make sure he got him killed before he started taking any step. And it starts now. He rushed to the table and picked his phone. He dialled a number.
The person picked up almost immediately. 'Williams!' the person booed from the other line.
'Jude. See I'm not calling you to exchange pleasantries. Something bad is happening,' Chief shouted.
'What's that?' Jude replied from the other line. His voice now shaking.
'Dapo is back!'
'What?' came Jude's fearful voice. 'I thought he was dead?'
'yeah. But I had feared that he might not be really dead. He is very cunning. My fears are confirmed.'
'Jesus! But how did you knew?'
'One of my boys went to see his parents at his village and discovered a huge house standing there. He claimed to have seen a lady in mask going there one day and had became suspicious. He monitored the place and got to snap his face secretly one day. He came to me and showed me the picture. It was him, very much life and blood. After more searches on him, we discovered he is anchoring a secret political party in the village, intending to be a governor. Can you imagine?'
'This is serious,' came Jude's voice.
'We now know he has someone working for him. We know the village he is taking refuge in. And we know his next step which is trying to kill one of us, especially you...'
'Eh?' screamed Jude.
'yes. He doesn't know we are aware of him and that is a step ahead'
'But what are we going to do to this?' Jude asked.
'Miri. Miri is the solution,' Chief Williams said and gave a dry, wicked laugh.

Three weeks later
Ann's New Base, Nyar
The pale blue light gave the workout room a dreamy look. In several sections of the room were some people, four in all. At an extreme corner was Ann, dressed in workout vests and pants, working furiously at the treadmill. At various corners were Ann's newly gotten helping hands. A quick introduction...
Meet Harry, a professional and seasoned computer wizard. Aged nineteen and handsome, he had an outstanding brown skin and a prominently pointed nose like those of the Caucasians. He is an expert when it comes to technical matters. If great care isn't taken, he can hack into one's brain
And then there is slim Oyin, a Nigerian-Acelander. He was a product of a relationship that happened to come into life during the war that led to some people fleeing Nigeria to create another country now known as Aceland. Oyin happened to witness the war which lasted for fifteen good years. He was given birth to, two years after the war started and was forced to fight in the war at a tender age. It was there he learnt how to handle guns. He was an expert gun handler; he could have shot the sky if this was possible. He never misses his target, all he need to do is to just release that one shot and all is over.
And finally, here comes Shira, Ann's favourite. Pretty and dark skinned, hers was a raw talent she developed on by participating in local wrestling competitions, fighting bullies and so on. She is a veteran when it comes to hand combat. She had fought and won over sixteen men singlehandedly and at once. Although she got injured then. But it still doesn't hides the fact that she is talented, or does it?
'I think that would be enough,' Ann said as she wiped her face furiously with a small face towel, trying to get rid of the rivulets of sweat on her face.
The three stopped abruptly and each stood up, mopping their faces with towels.
'Let's go and clean up. And then we can now discuss how to get rid of the Finance Minister,' she said and proceeded to move out.
'OK boss,' the trio muttered..
Some minutes later...
Ann loved the living room in the new base. It was bigger, wider, spacious and way more airy than the one at her previous base. Besides, it was beautiful and well planned. And who won't fall in love with a proper building?
As she walked out of her room, she was making ideas and crossing them out in her brain. She finally hit on a plan to get the Finance Minister. Satisfied, she walked through the long hallway and finally to the living room. The trio were already at the living room, chatting and making fun of each other. When they sensed Ann's presence, they adjusted themselves and fell silent.
She walked to the biggest settee and sat on it. She then crossed her left leg over her right leg and gazed straight at them. They looked back with all seriousness.
'OK guys. You know we have an immediate job on our hands. Which is to murder the Finance Minister. We have no correct details about him yet. So this is what is going to happen, Shira shall start the job...' she paused to watch her reaction but she only stared back defiantly, not batting an eyelid.
She continued, 'From the researches I've made so far, I discovered that the Minister's wife is looking for a maid. Her previous one had fled when she had made life a hell for her. She is known to maltreat her maids, and the last straw broke the camel's back. Hence, the reason why no one is willing to do the job. Shira will go and work for her as a maid. She will act as an undercover agent, getting news and details for us about the man. You must try your best, Shira.'
'I will, boss,' she said with a grin.
'I think we're through here. Someone should start to prepare food for you guys except me. I need to go somewhere.' And she stood up from the settee and walked away.
Minister of Finance's house
Miri parked the car under the canopy and stepped out. She walked straight to the main building, greeting the security officials politely. They knew her and she was not strange to them. She smiled as she walked into the building and bounced into the gigantic sitting room. Mrs Jude sat on a beautiful couch, gazing at the huge and noisy flat screen television, a plate of chin-chin in her hands, munching with reckless abandon. When she saw her, she froze for a few seconds. She then reached for the remote control and switched off the television. With a frown, she turned back to her.
'What is it?' she asked her fiercely.
With a silly smile, Miri made her way to a couch directly opposite Mrs Jude and sat down facing her. The woman never liked her.
'I'm here to give you an advice concerning your safety and that of your husband. If you don't follow it, get ready to have your family members weep for you,' she said.
Paralyzed with sheer terror, Mrs Jude quickly threw her arms up, snapping her thumb on her middle finger repeatedly and jerking them back over head. 'God forbid such,' she said with eyes round like saucers.
'Ok. If you don't want that your God to allow it, you follow what I want to say. Now listen to me, about your proposed maid hunting, are you with me?' she questioned.
The woman nodded shakingly.
'Anytime you see a person here and wants to be your maid, just alert me. For those who wants to murder you and your husband will verily try to sneak in here and work as an insider, trying to gather information...'
Mrs Jude cut in abruptly, 'Someone called me today, a female; she said she wants to be my maid and announces she is coming here tomorrow. She introduced herself as Kate.'
'Kate indeed!' Miri exclaimed.
'You know what?' she said with a coy grin. 'I will receive the lady tomorrow. You don't need to do anything. I will handle it. I need to know if the lady is the criminal or not. Just sit back and watch. Understood?'
'yes... Yes,' Mrs Jude muttered hysterically.
To be continued
Hmmn, smart Miri!
