Cold Episode 7

Getting hold of Williams corpse was an impossible thing, the police had insisted that his body now belonged to the state because of what he did, they weren’t even allowed access to see his body for the last time and Joseph wasn’t going to push it, they can as well eat him, he had said.

Their investigation had suffered a huge setback since he murdered the chief, he was their only lead and he was left standing with nothing, except incoherent chatters and inconsistent news, things would have been easier if they were dealing with rival gangs but no, this was something different, he knew that someone with good reasons other than battle for supremacy was Orchestrating these attacks on his family and he has to find out whom and fast for the safety of his family.

Williams wasn’t mourned for long, their sadness over his death soon turned into anger, anger that he had kept them all out, anger that he never turned to his family when he may have needed them most, he was dead and nothing else could be done about it, they just had to pick up and move on with what’s left of them.
Maria insisted they prayed every night, to a God none of his siblings believed in, even she had her own doubts about him but she didn’t know how to shoot guns like her brothers, it was the only place she could hope for protection should her Brothers and their guns ever move far from her. She was the mother of the house and the most loved after August, everyone obliged her without questions.
On a dark Tuesday night, after their usual night prayers, everyone moved to their rooms, Maria with August, Jaycee alone and Joseph had gone out to get some air and clear his head out. At exactly 8pm, Jaycee’s phone vibrated, Nancy’s number displaying on the screen.
“Hello baby” he said as he picked.

“Where are you” she asked in a shaky voice
“I’m home, any problems?”

“Please come over to my house now, i need you, something happened and i’m scared ”
” nany what’s wrong ” he asked jumping from his bed.

“please come” she said and dropped the call.

He dressed up, flipped his cell in his pocket and and headed for the door, on a second thought, he went back to his drawer, pulled it open and brought out his gun, sticking it into his belt, he snuck out into the dark night which was lit by a full moon.

The man switched off Nancy’s phone and tossed it away, putting back the gag on her mouth, he motioned to 3 of his companions to go outside and wait for Jaycee, clutching heavy assault rifles, they went out and positioned themselves in 3 strategic locations away from the where the moon shone. Nancy sat wriggling on the Chair where she was restrained with strong ropes. Her eyes bloodshot from tears and her face red from where the man had hit her many times. On the floor lay the bodies of her parents, both strangled to death.

“Don’t worry, you will join them soon” the man said pointing his gun at the two lifeless bodies “All i need is your honeyboy to show up and then i will give you a quick one”. He said and laughed.
He pulled up on his bicycle and from a distance, he observed the house, the windows were closed and there was no light on them, inside the house was pitch dark. He knew better than going into the house. He Parked his bicycle at a corner and took cover in the shadow provided by a wall.

From there, he made a wide coverage of the place with his eyes, he knew exactly where one would hide to avoid discovery because he had often hidden at those places with Nancy to have sex out of the watch of her parents. He knew the shapes of each places and looking at the wall across the road, he noticed a new unusual figure, putting everything together, he made out the stature of a man, common sense made him attach a weapon to his hand and the shape was complete.

He pulled out his phone and dialed Nancy’s number again and it was switched off. He dialed Joseph’s number.

“Sup Jay”

“Cool bro, i’m over at Nancy’s and i think something’s wrong ”
” What the fuck are you doing there?”
“She called me up and said something was wrong and she was scared, said i should come over”

“So you are there now?”
“Yea, i think i made out a man with a gun, i’m a little far away”

“Stay put, don’t go anywhere they will see you, i’m on my way”
The call ended and Jaycee waited uneasily for his brother.

Back inside the house, they assassin was getting impatient.

“What the fuck is keeping him” he said and Nancy made some muffled noises. The assassin trying to appear funny, moved to her and placed his ear closer to her mouth.

“I can’t hear you sweetheart, come again”
