“I have cooked rice for you, it has been packaged on the dining, make sure you eat!” Uche told Richard as he sat beside him.
He looked into his eyes and saw that he had been crying. He sighed and scratched his head. “Richard, did you sleep at all?” He asked him.
He was mute as he picked up the best of his sister’s photograph and stared at it again. “Go to your place of work, I will eat my food.” He told him.
“Can you do me a favour by giving me this picture with you?”
Richard gave him. “Do you think I still don’t have a whole lot? I thank God she wasn’t inflicted with a disease people would have been running away from her, I thank God she didn’t go crazy before her death. Thank God for her kind of death, even though there were pains.”
Uche smiled. “I don’t know where God sent that lady from, I am sure she did all these to you! If not, you’d be abusing God.”
“I don’t have a choice.” He smiled faintly. “Go to work now before the Director threatens you.” He patted Uche.
“Okay, bye.” Uche grinned and walked out.”

10AM.
“Have they told you?” Lawrence stormed in again.
“No boss.” They echoed.
Lawrence became frustrated. “Are you mad?!” He yelled, breathing heavily.
“Don’t spare them! We will waste them if they can’t offer anything!”
“Boss when are we going?” One of the guys asked.
“I even almost missed my way the other time, this their Ibadan is annoying. How can they be calling a place Iwo road when and it is far from this our Ogo Oluwa Estate. We will leave when we finish killing them.”
“I am strict with time, you have less than two hours to die!” One of them announced.

11AM.
“Just an hour to go!” One of the guys proclaimed.
Helen glanced at Pemisire and smiles slightly. “We are going to die for real, Pemisire.” She said.
“I don’t think I have a choice, you are the one that still have a choice. Tell them the truth but they can’t get Richard.” She replied.
“Really?” She asked.
“No! I see no possibility of you being released because you’ve known their secret now.” She said.
“See, that’s exactly what I have been thinking too. I caused it all, if you die, we should go along.”
“I wish a miracle can happen, I wish someone should just appear and set us free.”

“What are you saying? Planning to run away?” A guy approached them.
Pemisire hissed. “I don’t care.” She said.
“Talk all you can, your life is about to end, anyways.” He laughed monstrously.
Pemisire smiled.
“Have they talked?” Lawrence came in again.
The other guys came out of the small place where they have been, to meet their boss. “None.” One said.
“Alright, since morning! I see that you really wish to die but I won’t hesitate to kill you. I got some slow and painful ways to die, you will soon tell me the truth.” He moved closer.
“What is it sir?” One of the guys asked.
“Untie them! I am sure they will confess now.” He smiled.
The two ladies were untied. Pemisire was very tired, she stood at the same spot and looked backward, it was an opening that had not be closed. She could see a big soak-away down there and quickly raised up her head.
“Go and get me the kegs of water and buckets at the back of my car.” He told his guys.
The guys were going when they heard multiple voices. “Freeze!”
Lawrence looked back instantly and saw five armed policemen coming toward them. He brought out the gun with him instantly and rushed to meet Pemisire as his hostage. He held her by the neck and pointed the gun to her head. “If you shoot, she dies!” He shouted.
Just then, Richard walked up and joined the policemen. “Pemisire!” He shouted her name.
“I repeat, if you try to move closer, she dies!”
The policemen stood firmly too and still pointed the gun at him. Suddenly a gunshot was heard.
——-
“Pemisire!” Richard shouted shivering already, but Lawrence fell.
His eyes widened as Lawrence was trying to fall and pushed Pemisire away. It seemed he had been shot by the Policemen that were downstairs, behind him. Pemisire lost control due to the gunshot and the push and fell too, just down the building to the open soak-away she saw earlier.
Just then, they all heard a splash. Richard ran to the place and saw that it was a soak-away that was there. “Pemisire!” He shouted as he ran back. “It seemed she fell inside the soak-away.” He shouted.
The policemen stood firmly, still pointing the guns at the remaining guys when Richard rushed down the stairs to go and check. He got there and didn’t meet the policemen that shot. He kept staring at the big soak-away filled to the brim and tears rolled down his cheeks. “Pemisire!” He screamed.
“Pemisire!” Helen too screamed as she ran downstairs to meet Richard.
Then, the policemen downstairs that had gone into hiding, after shooting Lawrence came out. “We heard a splash, how can we get her out now? Soak-aways are usually deep, she must have reached down there.”
“No-o-o-o!!” Richard screamed and seated on the floor.
“We must go together!” He rushed up.
The policemen got hold of him instantly, then Lawrence’s guys were matched downstairs and Lawrence that was shot by his leg. He was still alive.
