Diluted Bullet (Weeping Love) Episode 8


The fifth floor is the strongest floor in the DAVID CASTLE. Mr David possessed many buildings but DAVID CASTLE is where he spend most of his time with his family, each floor belonging to his children. Every floor was designed to correspond to the wealthiness of the family. Every floor has at least three rooms with a large sitting room and a kitchen except the first floor which was just the main sitting room where the families have a good time together and the fifth floor which consist of two rooms only with a large sitting room. It posses a long hallway which was always stationed with at least 10 securities in black suits. They always stay glued at their position, staying beside the neatly designed enclosed wall forming the hallway.

Gina walked with elegance as she thread softly on the Diamond Plate Rubber Flooring used in the flooring of the floor. The securities all bowed their heads as she walked passed them. She walked as if she doesn’t notice them, her face frowned ,her head straight and her breath steady.

At the end of the long hallway was a golden door also guarded by two securities in black suit. They bowed their heads as she got closer to them. Like she’s been doing, she pretend not to notice them as she placed her thumb on the finger print scanner that was beside the door, it blinked a green light thrice and it displayed monitor showed ” match found successfully, place your eye in front the scanner for scanning. She placed her eye directly in front of the scanner as a red light appeared moving up and down as it scanned her eye.

After few seconds, the light changed to green and the door opened automatically by itself. Gina entered and the door closed by itself again.

Mr David sat down on a sophisticated looking divan, it was made with a tiger’s hide. He was about to place a glass cup filled with wine in his lip when Gina entered, he dropped the glass cup on a glass table placed in front of him and smiled widely as he looked at his daughter, his favourite child, he always see his young wife which he wedded twenty five years ago in Gina and this made him like her more than the other kids. Gina is just a replica of Mrs David.

Three securities were in the room with him, one standing at his back, another one at his right hand side and the last one beside the blind inside the room. He had a binoculars in his hand which he was using to view the surrounding through a small hole created in the blind. A walkie talkie could been seen vividly, attached to their belt. They all bowed their head as they saw her. Gina with a frowned face made her way to one of sofa on the right hand side of Mr David.

” looks like you came all the way here to frown at your lovely kid ” Mr David said mockingly not letting go of the smile on his face. Gina couldn’t help but simper as she rolled her eye and frowned again.

” you’re not getting me with that ” Gina said trying to feign anger but s—-d at it as her dimple was already reflecting a hidden smile which was ready to be released from her lip.

” I think I’ve gotten you, you know only I ,know how to do that ” Mr David said now laughing.

” stop that dad, I’m darn angry with you now and if you use this cheap means in order to let me forgive you, it’s only going to escalate ” Gina said trying to be serious but s—-d at it again as she started smiling as her dad made some funny face to her. ” dad seriously ” she lightly fumed up

” okay doll, I’m sorry, but you’re just too stubborn, I think you inherited this trait from your mom, because I’m a gentleman ” Mr David said as he picked the glass cup filled with wine which he was about to drink earlier before Gina entered.

” keep lying, I got it from you dad , you disabled the elevator from getting to my floor for a whole two weeks, two weeks dad,it’s unfair ” Gina screamed at her dad.

” I know doll, but you caused it, I want you to stay anywhere you wish but not Nigeria, Nigeria isn’t safe for you, at least for now ” Mr David tried to instilled into his daughter the dangers of being Nigeria.

” but dad, you know I only want to stay in Nigeria, stay with you, you know that I can’t stay anywhere without you, please just let me stay here ” Gina cried out

” it’s the election period doll, if the opposition party get to know you’re my weakness ,it’s going to get messy, and you know I can’t lose you ” Mr David said with a serious voice .

” but dad, it’s still almost 11 months to the election ” Gina said in a taunting tone as she lightly hit her leg on the floor.

” yes I know doll, but 11 month to the election is like a day to the election “Mr David said staring into her Gina’s eye.

” I don’t care dad, just let me stay here ,I want to stay here with you ” she said squeezing her face.

” I’m sorry doll, you’re going back to Spain next week ” Mr David dropped the bomb as everywhere suddenly got awkwardly silent.

” Ok fine, since I’m going back soon, I want to hang out with my friends and I’m not going for a NO kid or else I’m going on an hunger strike ” Gina said with a serious tone.

” alright doll,but you’re going with DF security team , please accept or else you can just turn your hunger strike into fasting and prayer ,to help me in the next election so that I can be reelected ” Mr David said humorously as the three guards almost bursted into laughter but were stopped by the swift reflex of Gina’s eye to them.

” okay, tell them to get prepare, I want to change my dress ” Gina said accepting defeat as she stood up and started heading to the door.

” not even going to peck your kid ” Mr David said smiling.

” kid needs smacking not pecking ” Gina replied not turning as she exit the room.

” that girl is very funny ” Mr David said as he took a sip from the cup filled with wine.

” yes sir, she’s very funny ” the security standing at the right hand side said procuring a shocked glare from the president. ” I’m sorry Sir ” he quickly apologized and Mr David bursted into laughter as well as the other guys.


I woke up with a ladened head, my eye was blurry and I felt a little bit cozy, it was dark and I could feel someone laying down beside me, the person’s head on my chest , I could feel the person’s breath brushing lightly against my face. I was weak and couldn’t lift any part of my body. I was a bit scared as I had no record of what happened to me stored in my memory at that time. I hate darkness and I was sure my mom won’t leave me in a room without a light. She wouldn’t place her head on my chest but place me on her chest and surprisingly, I always have a good sleep when I lay on her chest.

My bed was soft but the one I was on was hard, this sent shivering feeling into my marrow. I forcefully widened my eye a bit maybe I was going to successfully see through the dark but it was a futile effort. I forcefully tried to lift my hand in order to wake whoever it was that was laying on my chest but it stopped midway before it could get to the person.

” are you awake ” the person whose head was on my chest suddenly asked with a feminine voice, a voice which sounded familiar. The person raised her head up from my chest relieving me of the weight. The voice sounded very familiar that I had to clump my mind around it trying to decipher where I heard it.

A light suddenly got switched on in the room revealing a girl beside a wall with her hand on a switch. She smiled to me as I tried to remember who she was and what was happening.

” how are you feeling ” she asked looking concerned as she moved closer to me. Seeing her face made my memory to retrieve all the temporarily lost data, where I was, what happened, who she was and what I was doing on the bed.

” I survived ” I tried to exclaimed happily but was barred from doing so ,courtesy, a sharp pain which suddenly flashed in my stomach.

” yeah, we did, you’re alive ” the girl said happily as she sat beside me on the bed. All the memories of how she helped me survive the situation flashed through my memory, she was very beautiful as she smiled, I was so grateful to her.

” thank you for what you did out there ” I appreciated her as I tried to sit up on the bed when I felt my muscle twitching and my lost strength returning.

” we’re now equal ” she said as she pecked me on my forehead before she stood up and head to her bed and lay on it. I pondered on the meaning of her words for some seconds before I could finally locate a meaningful meaning to it.

” so she appreciated my gesture of me trying to save her before ” I said to myself smiling. ” Precious ” I called her name softly.

” yes, what’s it ” she replied grudgingly

” how did you seem to know more about poison and ain’t freak out by what’s happening here ” I asked her trying to sound less accusing.

” my dad is a military man and he thought me many thing , no more question, good night ” she said standing up , heading to the switch in order to switch off the light.

” don’t switch it off ” I swiftly said as she was about to click on the switch.

” why ” she asked, looking at me startled.

” cause I hate darkness ” I replied her.

” better get use to it because I like it ” she said as she switched the light off and darkness took over the soul of the room.


” do you have everything in place ” Gina asked the person she was with on the phone. ” that’s good, just hold your position, I’m going to join you soon ” she added as she hanged up. She suddenly pulled over in front of a big restaurant. It was by the road side and a part was secluded as a parking spot for their customers who are with ride.

A black hilux Jeep parked behind her pink Ferrari. Another hilux was seen reversing and it also parked behind the first one that parked behind Gina’s car. Eight men in suit quickly dispatched from the two hilux as they quickly surrounded the pink Ferrari harbouring Gina.

She opened the Ferrari’s door in a sophisticated manner as the door swirled up and she got out of the car. She had on a tight fitted blue trouser, a white top with a bold inscription on it ” F–K BITCHES ” coupled with a love shaped dark eyeglasses. She was wearing a high heel and a big bag stayed glued on her hand which was very much unlike her. She love carrying a small bag which always harbour her iPad.

She got down from the car and passed a look round the securities who were surrounding her as if protecting her from mobs. A young guy who looked more handsome and unbefitting for the job he was doing walked up to her. He looked more like a model than a security with his great height, cute lips and dimples which glued on His cheek even tho he’s not smiling. He moved closer to Gina almost in a parade manner.

” ma’am, why did you stop here all of a sudden ” he asked Gina in a formal tone. She didn’t answer him as she walked elegantly passed him and passed the other guards. She abruptly turned as they made motion to follow her again.

” I’m getting myself something inside and I don’t want to see any of you inside with me, stay here I’ll be back soon ” she ordered as the guards find it hard to respond to her.

” ma’am, I promise to tell my wings to stay here but you’ve to allow me to follow you, president has ordered us not to let you out of sight ” the young guy said to Gina in a polite manner.

” what’s your name ” Gina asked him scanning him like she suspected him of being a threat.

” Wisdom Wealth ma’am ” he replied her formally

” I love your confidence, and I think I’ve seen your face somewhere before but not ready to remember now, so let go ” she said as she started heading to the entrance of the restaurant.

Wisdom’s P.O.V

She was miles above me but I’ve been crushing on her since I was a kid ,when I first saw her on her first visit to Nigeria, my dad ,a classmate to Mr David was the head security for Mr David even before he was elected as the country’s president. My dad was earning much to sponsor me to a good school and already procured a good lot of connection in order to allow me get a good work after the completion of my tertiary education. But instead of enrolling into university after the completion of my high school, I decided to enroll in robertland academy, a military school in Canada where I graduated with A SWORD OF HONOUR, THE GOVERNOR GENERAL’S SILVER MEDAL and THE SWORD OF DISTINCTION FOR LEADERSHIP.

I was adequately trained in martial art, used of modern and old weapons, creativity in art of war etc. Tho I disappointed my dad when I informed him of my opinion of joining him in service to the David’s family but I wasn’t ready to listen to anything he gat to say because my mind was made up. With my experience and my focus of study, getting the job was easy. I chose the DF security team because it was in charge of the safety of the family members of the David family. Rest of the story for another day.

I followed suite behind her as she made her way into the restaurant. The transparent glass door of the restaurant opened automatically for her as she stood at its front, and she entered, it also did the same for me.

The restaurant’s setting was made in such a way that people present there can barely see themselves except those who’re on the verge of ordering for what they want by themselves.

I followed behind her as she head to the staff in charge of selling to customers on stand. I followed behind her giving her some space. She ordered what she wanted but instead of her to make the order inside a takeaway, she made it clear she was having it there. I swiftly collected it from the staff as I helped her carry it to an unclaimed space inside the restaurant. I was surprised to see that she ordered twice of what she bought.

I dropped the tray on the table, helped her clean the fancy seat she’s supposed to sit on tho it was sparkling clean before and stood guard beside her.

” hey you ” she said to me and I looked at her oblivious of what she wanted to say. ” sit down ” she added surprising me.

” me ” I asked foolishly

” no ,not you, but you, sit down, hope you see that I bought twice of everything I ordered ” she said to me pointing at the tray.

” thanks for your kind gesture but I’m currently on duty here ma’am ” I rejected her offer nicely

” I’m not asking for your opinion, it’s an order ” she said glaring at me as I stood there confused at what to do ” do you want the food to get cold ” she asked due to my long silence.

I grudgingly sat on the chair opposite to the one she was sitting on as a she smirked suspiciously. What she ordered was two sharwama and two 50cl pet cokes. I ate slowly as she also ate at the pace of a snail. She was busy with her phone, maybe chatting or plotting a plan of how to escape the guards. She attested to my second guess when she suddenly stood up with the excuse of visiting the rest room.

” I’ll be back soon ” she said as she grabbed her bag and head to the female restroom. I abandoned the meal and stood up , I located one of the staff and asked if there is another exit in the restaurant apart from the main door and he replied

” yeah but it’s in the GM’s corner ”

” where’s the GM’s corner ” I asked him politely, He pointed at a direction different from where Gina took. ” another exit apart from that one ” I asked him again

” none that I I know of “. He replied me and I appreciated him.

I stood at the entrance of the restaurant as I communicated with my wings outside through the walkie talkie to be at alert making sure they don’t lose her. After five minute of standing guard at the door, I saw a lady coming from the area where the restroom was located. She was putting on an overall Muslim black gown with a black veil covering her face. The door had already opened for her when I suddenly realised that the lady was carrying the same bag which Gina had in her hand. I gave a chase at once and blew a whistle which I had on me, it was meant for alert. My wings followed me as we gave the lady a chase as she also ran. Surprisingly, she was fast even with all she had on. But I later overtook her and stopped her. I tried to remove the veil from her face but she struggled relentlessly in order not to allow me . After much trial, the veil was off.

” Shit ” I cursed as I found Tabitha, the personal maid of Gina under the veil.

Gina’s P.O.V

I drove happily as I passed the lone road to my dad’s school. My plan was a total success, the black range rover car i was in can’t be tracked , I was sure my Ferrari can be tracked easily, that was why I asked Tabitha to bring the range rover car ,I also hibernated my phone before switching it off so for it to be untraceable.

I shook my head to the music which was emanating from the stereo of the car. I suddenly slow down when I got to the school and saw a motorcycle at the main gate of the school. I was happy to see the security not allowing the rider in because it was a blemish to the reputation of my dad’s school. A cheap bike will be the last thing I was going to allow vilify my dad’s school.

I drove closer to them ready to bereave him of an entrance into the school but the occupant of the bike suddenly turned to look at me with fear visible in his eye, I was marveled at his beauty ,none I’ve ever seen before. Should I allow him in or not, I battled within myself.

To be continue….
