She was terribly worried cos she had promised to call around 10pm when she was sure that her father would be asleep to conclude on d time they would carry out their plan Belina had explained everything to Prisca & even though Belina didn’t like being a burden, Prisca had been able to successfully convince her that moving in with them was d best option. She had always wanted her around since she was the last born & also d only unmarried child of d house.

She had become lonely & Belina being her best friend had visited a couple of times & she had enjoyed her company immensely. She had talked to her parents & they had supported their plan.

She looked at d time & noticed that it was almost 12midnight & she became more worried. She contemplated calling Belina father in order to stylishly ask for Belina’s whereabouts but cancelled it immediately, then she picked up her phone & dialed Tony.

I opened my eyes & d building I found myself started changing colour. It was after some minutes that my sight regulated. The room was very dark that it took sometime for me to see anything important. I remembered my abduction & made sure I was completely still. I heard a snoring sound ahead of me & carefully as I could, I traced d sound & was not surprised when I found two guys.

I remembered that I was drugged but it is either that d drug was not so powerful or that God made me with extra tire for a time like this. I noticed that they were fast asleep & I tried to stand up but my legs were unstable. I gathered all d will inside me & pushed my weight up. I swayed but didn’t dare fall for fear of giving myself away.

I noticed that my shoes were gone & I didn’t bother about it. As I tip toed out, I saw my bag extremely close to one of d guys & making a cross sign, I bent to pick d bag. As I was lifting d bag, it mistakenly hit d guy lying beside it & i froze. The guy turned & to my relief, he changed position & continued his sleep.

I creaked d door open & it made some funny sounds that i expected that someone would have woken up but i did not hear anything. I sneaked out of d place with my heart in my mouth, hoping that there was no one outside & glory be to God, i found myself running towards the road within seconds bare footed.

Tony walked around d hospital checking on patients. After he left Richard, he had gone to d hospital cos he was doing night today. Thanks to d little sleep he had gotten during d day, he wasn’t feeling dizzy. As he was going round, he saw someone that looked like Richard but dismissed it. When he passed by richard’s office & met d light on, he knew he must be in there. He opened d door without knocking & saw Richard sitting on his chair going through some books.

“what are u doing here?” Tony asked clearly surprised.

“exactly what u are doing here”, Richard replied & said, “I need to check on d patient in ward C. I was just coming from there & would be going there in d next one hour to ensure that he is still stable” Tony stared at Richard for some minutes, sighed & sat down.

“You are putting urself into too much stress Rich,why are u doing this to urself?” he asked

“I am not doing anything Tony” Tony stood up & walked up to Richard;

“u need to stop blaming urself for what happened to Tonia. Look at urself, u look drawn & stressed out. u need to sleep” he said sympathetically. Richard hated sympathy so he flared up,

“I don’t need to sleep. I actually need to remain awake cos closing my eyes would only compound my problem, & pls, stop fussing around me, I am not a kid. I can take care of myself” Tony sighed & made to leave.

“Tony” Richard called. Tony looked back at Richard. “I am sorry, I am just tensed up” Tony nodded & just as he made to leave again, his phone rang & he looked at d caller.

“Prisca?” he said looking surprised. He looked at d wall clock & noticed that it was almost 12am. He sat down back & picked the phone.

“Sweetheart?” he called

“Tony, I am sorry to disturb you” prisca said. He sensed something odd in her voice and asked,

“Are you ok?”

Prisca explained everything including the fact that Belina would be forced out of the country by dawn if they did not do something about it. Tony listened attentively and when she was through, he said,

“Can you sneak out of the house without being seen?” She replied in affirmative and he said, “ok, I would be there in fifteen minutes max. I would call you when I get to your street. Please honey stay inside your compound and not outside, I would pick you up and we would go to her house. We would discuss how we are going to get her out on the way”.

“Thanks darling, I am sorry for the inconvenience”,Prisca replied greatly relieved. Tony dropped the call and Richard started his own round of questioning. Tony explained everything to him and Richard insisted on following him. After convincing him that his would be more useful in the hospital, he set out.
