“Your friends are not back?” Pemisire asked Richard as she entered into Richard’s place again.
“They are not, who prays for their arrival in the next twenty minutes? We have to get this one done before their arrival.” He stood up gently.
“I hope the pains have subsided.” She said.
“Yes, thanks.” He collected the attache case and walked into the house.
Richard returned after few minutes. “Trust me, it is safe.” He smiled.
“I do, though no one is to be trusted.” She smiled.
Richard chuckled softly and laid down again. “But, you should know me, if I lay my hands on that man..” He hissed.
Pemisire laughed. “What will you do?” The man wil just fling you away.” She continued laughing.
“But whenever I am totally annoyed, I can devour a person!” He laughed.
“I have to leave now, it is getting late. Say me well to your friends.” She stood up.
“Ladies!” Richard shook his head and smiled.
“What again?” Pemisire laughed.
“I am sure if what you just said is to be written down, it won’t have a comma, not even a full stop.”
Both laughed.
“I really want to return as quick as possible. I am just getting familiar with Ibadan.” She smiled.
“What is the name of your friend?” He asked.
“Helen.” She replied.
“Say me well to her and thanks so much, I’ll be forever grateful.” He waved.
Pemisire waved back, not knowing it might be the last time of waving to him, a man’s destiny.

“You didn’t act well.” Helen accused Pemisire as she entered into the house.
“See, Helen, I have to pray to God. I mean a serious one for him to protect me for the two nights I am still going to spend here. In fact, when I leave, you have to leave this place too!” She said, sprawling on the bed.
“Why would I leave? You should be patient! Who told you that wasn’t Michael? His voice might have changed.” She said.
“What voice? Have you forgotten he is into music? He inspired me! We have spoken many times until I lost his contact when he left for Ghana.” She replied.
“So, Richard has found you a new place to live, right?” She asked.
“See, Helen, I don’t want this to cause a fight or disagreement between us. I know you before i got to know that guy called Richard. You are the greatest person that can keep my secret that is why you are my first suspect when it comes to Lawrence and his guys. They might have found your contact! Who knows if they have been spying since you sent them the address? You have to know this too.”
“I am just thinking straight. It is true! I will have to call our so-called Michael tomorrow to ask him some questions if he would get it.”
“You should have done that even before now! You should have asked him!”
“I believe all is well. Lawrence and his foolish guys will all die!” She hissed.
“I am hungry.” She sat up.
“I thought your husband should have given you food.” Helen chuckled.
Pemisire laughed.

WEDNESDAY MORNING.
It was six am, Helen had been woken by her alarm clock and Pemisire likewise. Both were getting set to start preparing for their outings that day when they heard soft knocks at the door. They glanced at each other and faced the door, none of them was expecting a visitor that early morning. “Who is there?”Helen stood to get the door, putting on her slippers.
“T.j” The male voice replied.
“T.j?” Helen hissed and opened the door for the guy, hoping to see the real T.j as said but not the T.j she knew. “Please who are you?” She asked.
“Ssh..”The guy held his lips for a moment before some other guys came in and locked up the door.
“Where are the documents?” A husky voice spoke from behind.
“Documents?” Pemsire muttered under her breath and scratched her head gently. That was what she had presumed, she could see it coming her way already. This is death. She kept saying until another voice thundered. “Where are they?”
The two ladies maintained their taciturnity for a moment until the guys started their ultimate search and found nothing like the attache case, not to talk of the documents in it. The room had been made topsy-turvy in short time. “Get everything done.” One of them commanded.
The deed was done instantly.

“The planned place, boss.” One of Lawrence’s guys said on call before he ended the call.
It was some minutes to seven am, they have gotten to the uncompleted building planned to be used for their evil operation. “Just tie the ladies.” One of the guys said, picking his seat.
“What did the boss say?” They all started discussing between each other as some of them got Helen and Pemisire tied up to the pillars where they were, expecting Lawrence then.
Few minutes after Helen and Pemisire were tied up, Lawrence appeared in his native and gold-rimmed glasses. “How far about them?” He asked as he came in.
“They have refused to talk, we searched the whole room but there was no document in there.” They explained.
“Did you do everything as planned? I hope there was no trace!” He said, moving closer to Pemisire and Helen.
“Yes boss. I said it, I said I heard it when one guy was knocking at a door in that house yesterday and was calling T.j” One of them spoke.
“So you guys eventually used T.j?” He grinned.
“Yes Boss.” They chorused.
Lawrence laughed. “Where is the attache case?” He approached the ladies.
Pemisire kept staring at him, breathing heavily. Helen was downcast, she couldn’t speak too.”
“Are you deaf?!” He pulled Pemisire’s head up by pulling her hair wickedly.
Pemisire groaned. “She knows nothing about it, you should leave my friend.” She said.
Lawrence laughed. “Are you mad?” He frowned and released her hair. “If you refuse to tell me where you put the documents, I am going to send you to…”
Pemisire interrupted. “Do I look I care too? I wish to die too, I wish to see my twin sister! Death is something I am not afraid of, I am not scared and not moved to an inch!”
Another hot slap landed on her cheek. “Do you think you’ve started suffering? This place has been secured, don’t think you can run away,you will suffer till you die if you fail to tell me the reality.”
“Everyone will still die, the time is just different! You killed your best friend, you killed my innocent twin sister, you destroyed my joy and peace, what else should I be afraid of?”
Lawrence laughed again. “I see that you don’t fear death but do you know death is better than some treatments sometime?” He questioned her.
“Pemisire…” Helen called her name.
“Don’t speak there!” She shouted.
“Let me talk…”
“You can’t talk here, what’s your problem?” Pemisire shouted at her
“Do you want me to die? I am afraid of death.” She said softly.
“That is a good thing. If this.. I think you are the Helen, if you wish to talk, don’t worry you will be freed.” He said moving toward her.
“I don’t know..” She said as Lawrence stood before her.
“Do you think we are  here to play? See guys, if they refuse to talk, torture them!” He commanded.
“Yes boss.”
“I’ll be leaving in a moment, when it is 12pm and none of them fail to tell you, kill the two, to hell with you!” He turned back indignantly.
“Now, where are the documents?” The guys swum them like bees.
“Kill me! Even if she tells you where the document is, she doesn’t know the actual place. Kill me!” Pemisire said.
“Is this one insane? I can shoot you!” He said and pulled out a gun.
“Do you think that is a new thing? How did you terminate my parent’s lives? Either you kill me or excruciate me, I’ll still keep my secret to myself.”
“This girl is seeming too bold for her age, I don’t have time for any nonsense, is she mad?” One of the guys came closer and slapped her again.
In no time, the guys started their work of beating them up so as to tell them where the documents are. After some minutes of torture, they stopped to ask them where the documents were. Then, Pemisire was focused on because she was the one who knew the nook and cranny of the documents. She had started bleeding, the guys didn’t pity the lady in them, they didn’t act as if they were beating ladies up until they were satisfied.
“No!” Pemisire said as she was pouring out blood from her mouth. She glanced at Helen and still smiled in her problem. “If it is my destiny to die, I know I will.” She said.
“Why has she been adamant? You don’t fear death? You don’t care?” One of them said, laughing slightly. “Where are the documents?” He asked her again.
“How many times do you want me to tell you?”
“I pity no man! If not for the Boss’ command, I’d have killed you. I am waiting for twelve pm before i send you to your grave.”
