A Man’s Destiny Season 2 Episode 4


It was two hours after, the guys summoned had gotten to the room where the secret meeting would be held. Not quite long after their arrival, Lawrence walked into the room and greeted them all.
That must be one of the reasons that made him send his wife and two children abroad while he remained in Nigeria. He looked serious as he stood before them all and removed his gold-rimmed glasses on the table before him. If meeting the guys and working hard would make him get the attaché case, he was really ready to be patient. “Get everything set.” He told one of his guys that headed to the laptop and punched some buttons.
Pemisire’s photograph was projected on the screen after the guy finished with the work on the laptop.
“This picture was gotten from her profile pictures on Facebook.” Lawrence said and pressed his lips together after.
He was silent for a while before he continued.
“To start with, the lady that sent us the address is a very close friend of the lady in question.  The house is located at No 4, Omolayo Estate in Oyo State.”
He continued discussing with them until he picked up a marker and went to the white board. He made a point there and termed it Helen’s place, he made another point there as an uncompleted mighty duplex and made the roads where they were meant to be.
“From a reliable source, this can be pictured as the estate where her house is. Another thing is that the house is a rented apartment but we don’t know the room for now. I hope you guys understand all I have been explaining?” He asked as he walked back to the table and dropped the marker.
“Yes boss.” The chorused.
“The main reason why I am doing all these is because I want everything to be done neatly. I don’t want anything to be traced back to me at all.” He said.
“Yes boss.” They replied him.
“Now, let’s get to business. From the look of things, I don’t think our mission is inside that rented apartment. A place where she must have hidden it might be the uncompleted building.” He said.
One of the guys stood up. “I don’t think so, and, is the uncompleted building on hold or are labourers still working there?” He asked.
“No, it’s been on hold for a while so I think she might have kept it there.” He replied.
“I don’t think so, she must have kept it in a more secured place. And, she is new there, don’t you think the case might be with someone she trusts so much?”
“No. Her father didn’t make her and her twin sister mix with his own family and that of her mother. I don’t think she has anyone apart from Helen.”
“Alright.” The guy replied and sat down.
“So, when do we go?” He asked his guys.
There was a brief silence.
“When will he be discharged?” Jay asked the Doctor.
“Anytime soon. I want him to respond to treatment well before letting him go for a while then he returns for us to complete the post operation.” He replied.
“Alright.” Jay replied.
“I have eaten enough.” Richard said as he closed the flask.
“I thought you were going to finish the food, glutton.” Jay said, smiling.
Pemisire laughed. “You are really funny!”
“Should you be saying that? Instead of you to be caring, foolish boy.” Richard said.
“So, what should I have said?” Jay hissed.
“A weldone should suffice.” He replied, smiling.
“Weldone? Na which job you come do?” Jay laughed.
Richard frowned now. A moment when he tried to be cheerful but his sister’s death would make him go down again.
“How do we bury her.” He asked, ready to start crying.
“Richard! Just rest, I’ll go and check on Doctor Kate now.” Pemisire said.
“Just don’t start thinking, remember you have to rest and put your mind at peace because you just concluded a surgery.” Doctor Martins told Richard.
“Let’s move him back to the bed.” He added, talking to Jay.
“No, I’d prefer if you allow me go there to check on my sister.” He started crying.
“No! You can’t be going around now and besides you really need to rest!” Jay affirmed.
“Rest? Jay, I want to see her!” He shouted.
“You can’t shout! Your internal organs need to rest for the wound to heal as quick as possible. Please, just sleep.” Doctor Martins said.
“Doctor, I want to see Christiana.” He said again.
“I think I should confess now, I spoke with Doctor Kate earlier, she.. she has been taken to the..mortuary.” Jay stammered.
“No!” Pemisire squinted her face.
“Christie!” Richard bellowed.
“How do we bury her?” Pemisire asked Jay.
“I don’t know, he will be the one to tell. But, I don’t want him to be there while burying her.” Jay replied.
Pemisire snorted. “It will tear him apart. So, when did they move her?”
“Today. That was why Doctor Kate called me because of the money that would be paid at the mortuary. Now, she has to be buried as soon as possible because they take money everyday.” He replied.
“I don’t wish to ask him but I think the best place is.. a cemetery. Do you know we have no choice but to ask him?” She snifled.
Jay sighed. “Yeah, the earlier, the better.” Jay replied.
“What of that guy.. the other friend.?” She asked.
“Don’t mind him, spending a whole year to get Richard’s clothes.” He hissed.
“We will move next week Friday.” Lawrence said, walking around the room slowly.
“Boss, don’t you think that is too far? The earlier the better, Boss.” One of he guys objected.
“I think everything should be done in that Oyo State, we have to lodge in a place where we won’t be noticed so we can go check on the street well before the operation and after the operation, if she doesn’t want to release the documents, we have to kidnapp her to torture her well.” He explained.
“I reason with you boss, we have to get that done.” Another said.
Lawrence smiled. “We always have to think well and vey fast. So, I’ll start making the moves on where we are going to lodge in, where we might put her if she wouldn’t release the documents.”
“That is easy now, a hotel.” One of the guys stood up and spoke.
“How can we do that in the hotel? What if she raises an alarm or if the hotel has hidden cameras!” He shouted.
“So, I’ll rent a house for the operation. If she’s stupid and we are lucky enough, the documents might be inside that house, we just take it and waste her. If we aren’t lucky, it might take days because she must tell us where the documents are before we waste her.” He told them.
“Yes boss.”
“So, start getting set. It might be an easy game, also a tough one.” He laughed wickedly.
