He had been like a fallen tree for months. The friends he had told, instead of pacifying & consoling him had mocked him & helped him spread d news. He had been stinkingly rich then so one day when he was checking out of a hotel that was popularly known in d island to be a ‘hotel for d rich’ after a business trip, he saw a very very beautiful young lady crying on d staircase.
He was instantly drawn to her, so he approached her & asked her what d matter was. She said,
“I came to see a man here but he threw me out”. He was taken aback wondering how a reasonable man could throw this striking lady out without a second thought. After much persuasion, she opened up & said,
“I met him like a month ago & he promised to take care of me but now I am pregnant & he is denying it, saying he has a wife that he loves, he did not tell me that b4 o”
He took her to his house. He had d servants prepare her a warm bath & after her bath, she had slept like a newly born baby. She actually looked like one. When she woke up d next morning he had called her, told her his problem & promised to take care of her & d child if she allows d child to bear his surname. She had agreed instantly & he also made her promise never to disclose that secret to their child.
They had lived in luxury for 5yrs & he noticed d time that Linda started falling in love with him. He was taken by her beauty but he just was not in love with her.
Belina grew to be a carbon copy of her mother & much more beautiful that she looked like a doll most of d time. This made Mr Badmus exceedingly angry because he could boast about being her father in public but in his heart, d truth that he could never have a child however made him despise Belina.
Things became bad after 5yrs & he took it out big time on Linda blaming her for his misfortunes & he would have transferred it also on Belina if Linda hadn’t been protecting her all d way Mr. Badmus wanted to just die as he looked at how far he had depreciated. He wished he had abandoned Linda on d step that day. He looked around at all he was worth in d sitting room & said to himself,
“if it is d last thing I do, I would make sure that Belina pays for this”..
Tolu took out d 150, 000 Naira he had collected from Tunji for d job & put it in his cross bag. When he was about to step out of his house, he thought about it again & removed 50.000 from d money & dropped it. Tunji would have to accept d money like that, at least d job was carried out only that those idiotic boys blundered it.
He took something else & put it in his pocket. If he won’t accept it, I would make him accept it by force. He got to Tunji’s house & upon arrival, he met Tunji in his sitting room about to finish a bottle of whiskey.
Tunji looked at him immediately he entered & his eyes sent bullets right through his heart. Tolu was never intimidated by anyone so he marched right towards him,brought out d 100, 000 Naira & placed it right there on d bar.
“That is 100, 000 Naira. I removed 50, 000 cos d job was carried out only that d girl ran away”. Tunji lifted d cup of whiskey to his lips but instead of him to drink it, in a flash, he poured it in Tolu’s face.
“Jesus…” Tolu said, startled. Tunji laughed slightly & d next second, his face was blank like he hadn’t been laughing merely seconds ago.
“u better complete my money, right here & now, if not, uhn, u would see”.
Very slowly like in all these action movies, Tolu brought out his gun amd placed it right on Tunji’s forehead. Tunji turned to a stone with seconds & he started shivering like he had fallen into d type of ice water that was showed in Titanic. Tolu laughed heartily,
“so,u no even get liver. Give me one reason why I should not blow ur head off”, he said. Tunji kept on saying pls but he had stepped on Tolu’s toes. “u have never been slapped by a woman & u wanted her to pay for it, so also no one had dared pour a cup of water on my face not to mention a drink. Well, when I blow off ur head, I would be able to take d whole money. Say hello to d devil for me”, he said & pulled d trigger.

As d day went by, I almost forgot completely about d event of the previous day. Prisca made everything very enjoyable & my newly found parents made me feel like a little girl again. They were very comfortable. Not exceedingly rich but they could easily buy whatever they wanted without thinking twice. They took me out & got me new sets of clothes, shoes bags & everything they felt was customary. Anyone that did not know them would think I was their daughter.
Being a weekend, everyone was at home. Mum almost overfed me & I commented on it but she would not have any excuses. She said I was still weak no matter what I said & that I should just eat & sleep. Although I was not so used to being fussed over, I enjoyed it & I made myself feel like a baby for d first time in my life.
