I could hear doors close as Sofia and her men entered the car .I prayed for a moment and tried to move my hands but the man did a good job tieing me up . I couldn’t move an inch , my phone rang and I panicked .
I tried moving to lay on my right side where my pocket was but the tone was still audible . The car had started moving and with every move my hope of being rescued was dimishing .
After moving for about 10 minutes, I heard the car come to a halt , a door opened and clossed again. I was dying to know what was going on out there. I heard Sofia talking on the phone .
“I have no idea what you are talking about?” she said ,
” what the hell? Are you mad ?” she said sounding upset ,
“am at a friend’s party, since when do you give a damn where I go . Please don’t involve me in your stupid issues. ” I heard her shout as she hang up , she went back in the car and talked to the men ,
” let’s hurry” she said ,
” we are running out of time.”
The vehicle started moving and I was sure that was my end . I thought of granny , Joe , Chile and dad . I will miss them I cried .
Sad that l just met dad and now I was going to die . I decide to think of happy moments. I ought to die happy I thought, and like Sofia said if at all I was meeting mom I had to smile.
I was carried away by thoughts I didn’t hear the vehicle stop .
One of sofias men came and opened the door to the trunk. He untied my hands .
“Get down” , he ordered me . I moaned a bit as I stretched my hands. l felt pain where the rope was tied . The man was standing waiting for me to go down Suddenly his phone rang . He bent his head to his pocket and as he grabbed his phone I saw an opportunity to escape .
I kicked him hard on his manhood, He fall to the ground holding his himself in pain and I jumped out running like hell , I could hear Sofia shout behind me
” Hey come back here ! You fools catch her! how can you let her escape ? ”
I ran with everything I got, I could hear them ran behind me . without even knowing where I was going I kept running as much as my feet could take me. It was dark I could barely see .
I saw vehicle lights coming from behind me and I ran even faster. I realised running on the clear read wasn’t helping so I decided to turn and ran in the bushes . I stopped for a while to look behind . “I lost them” I thought as I leaned on the small tree to catch my breath.
after a few minutes I started running again came to another wide road , a thought told me to stop and wait for a vehicle so I ask for a lift but then I thought of Sofia. I couldn’t risk it . I crossed the big road and my legs couldn’t go any further . I felt so tired my chest was burning .
Finding small tree a few meters in front, i decided to sit down in the bushes.
Looking up i saw some lights at a distance . I knew there where some houses near by but I was so tired my legs were heavy. I gave up and decided to rest .
Some minutes later I heard a vehicle stop by the wide road I just crossed .
“Sofia” I thought but then two other cars stopped and I heard voices ,
“search around this area” a man’s voice shouted . I saw touch lights pointing in my direction . Hiding behind the small bush so I first see who it was then two men passed me. Looking closely, they were not Sofias men . Then a third man emerged,
“Dad !” I called out ranning to him . “Here!” dad shouted ,
“we found her!” He ran and hugged me so tight .
” Joy are you okey ?” dad asked .
“Am so scared dad” i cried out.
“Thank God I found you , that woman will pay for this . How can she think of doing such a thing ? She has no limits .”
“She wanted to kill me, she said she will make it look like a suicide , ” i sniffed on as he led me out of the bushe.
“she’s crazy ”
we walked to the vehicles, a group of men standing by 3 of them where in police uniform.
“How did you find me ?” l asked dad .
” You did well to call me . I picked the call and I could hear everything . I called the police and gave them my phone to track you but because of what happened last time l didn’t trust they will do a good job so a friend of mine helped me hire these other guys to help me search for you . Thank God their equipment worked faster and we started tracking you , we were almost catching up and your phone went off. Luckily we caught Sofia by the road side , she was pacing around and I knew you had escaped” he explained.
” Have they caught her ? ” I inquired .
“Yes they did and there’s no escaping this time since the police heard and recorded everything , you are clever my child ” dad looked at me smilling I could see his face as the vehicle lights shined in our faces.
“Thank God you are a strong and courageous girl. God knows what Sofia could have done to you”

I was taken to the hospital for check up, my feet were swollen I didn’t even realise I lost my shoes as I ran away from Sofia .The Doctor recommended I spent the night at the hospital they observe me . Dad stayed with me ,
“thank God it’s over now” he said sitting next to me .
Sofia was charged with murder together with the two men as her accomplices , infact they charged her for fraud at the company and kidnapping . She was given 60 years Imprisonment with hard Labour .
Weeks later, Joe and I moved in with dad and we both completed out secondary school after some yers.
Chile opened a fruits and vegetable shop at a large shopping mall . Dad helped her with a large sum of capital . He said it was just right that he helped them since they had contributed a great deal in my life and sacrificed a lot for me.
Granny would always visit us but stayed at her farm. She always did missed me but was happy I was safe and happy with my father. There was no day I felt unloved by the people around me. I was happy and all the days at high school were great.
4 years after completing a master’s degree in economics from the UK I came back to Zambia to ran two more companies Dad opened. Joe was the new CEO of the old company and was doing so well . He made his own investments too and was a big boy .
One day, we sat outside my house in the evening with Joe. He had grown into a stunning handsome man.
” Hey little one! so when are we getting married ?” He asked cutting the conversation he were having.
I sat up and looked at him suprised , “what do you mean big boy ?” I asked laughing not taking him serious.
“Am serious” he moved closer . “you know I love you and I have waited for this moment my whole life . I want you to be my wife Mwazi , I love you and can’t wait to start a family with you .”
I looked at him and saw he was being sincere . I know I cared so much for him but wasn’t he supposed to be my brother ?
“Okay Joe you are playing me around again right ?” I chuckled.
He came closer and kissed me, to my own suprise I kissed him back and it felt so right .
I had one or two boyfriends in the UK but with Joe it felt so much special .
“I love you my little one . will you marry me?” he proposed with so much love and calmness in his deep voice . I knew at that moment I had loved him the entire time. We fought so many times but were in love too.
“yes” I said without hesitation .
” I will marry you big boy” I said holding his hands .
Dad who stood behind us clapped ,
“well done my son you couldn’t have choosen any better.” I looked at him.
“Dad ! You knew ? ” I asked him . lt seemed he was fully aware of Joes plans .
“Yes, he knows” Joe answered
“I asked him first you silly ” he chuckled .
“Oh, you two are bad” I teased kissing him.
Two months later, I walked to the aisle and Joe stood in front looking so handsome and smart . I glanced at dad holding my hand walking me to him .
“Thank you dad” I smiled
” You are welcome baby. You deserve this happiness Joe is a good man and he loves you. I pray the two of you will live happily from now on. ”
” you have made me a proud father.” He added.
Granny and Chile sat in the front row , they looked so happy . I smilled at my husband to be and he held my hand ,
“thank you ” he smiled ,
“my little bundle of Joy . You fought with blood and water to realise this prescious moment. Am glad am part of it all and I will love you forever and always.”
“I love you too, Joe” I whispered to him..
The priest cleared his throat ,
“we may now begin the ceremony , in the name of the Father , the Son and the Holy spirit”
we looked at each other again,
“amen !” we both answered smilling.
