Previously On The Unknown. .

Nicholas was very tired. He got Chief Sam out of the forest and placed him by the road side. He was breathing heavily when he saw the head lamp of a vehicle coming near. “This should be Craig.” He thought and entered into his car, speeding away.
That was not important to Craig. He ran down as he saw Doris and untied her. “The Unknown.” Doris said as she pointed to the direction where Nicholas ran through.
“Leave him, we will get him some other time. By the way, what happened? Why are you like this?” .
“This evil Chief.” Doris muttered as she made her way to lean against Craig’s car.
Craig chuckled. “Don’t worry, he will face the music. But, was it The Unknown that assisted you?”
Doris kept quiet for a while. “Yes.” She finally replied him.
“Hey Craig!” Nancy waved from where she was.
Stella felt she was lost, Nicholas felt he was too, but not totally. The intense of seeing her sister sprung up in Stella and tapped Craig.
“What’s happening? Let’s go.” She said.
. “Go and meet Doris, please, I have something to sort out with that lady.” He told her.
So they know each other. By the way, why’s she acting as if she doesn’t know me? And, what’s even her relationship with him? Nicholas was lost in thought until the bash from Stella brought him back to his senses.
“What’s happening to you also? Let’s go.”
He masked his shock well as he moved closer to her. “You have been interposing with my personal life, haven’t you?”
“No need to shrill at me. The little time we spent together, I got to know more of you. If only Doris didn’t steal you away from me, but, I have a better man now.”
“It’ll be better for you to stick to your better man and mind your business!” He shouted and walked inside the hospital.

“What really happened? Did you get to see The Unknown?” Stella asked Doris, playing with her hair.
Doris smiled. “I was unable to see him. He took my gun away from me.” She replied. “But, I’m sure the person is a really nice person.”
“Nice? Is he not the one who put you into this? A knuckle headed person!” Nicholas hissed aloud.
Doris grinned. “He didn’t put me into any trouble. He was there to get me out of that trouble even when everyone left.”
“Who told you that has painted him nice? Who put you into that trouble at first? Who?”
“See the way you’re talking as if you know all that happened.” Doris continued laughing.
Nicholas gave a long breath and kept quiet for a moment. “What really happened yesterday?” He looked anxious as he cruised closer to her.
“Can you believe that it was Chief Sam who kidnapped me that day?” She chuckled.
“Really? How did you know? What are the attestations?” Stella enquired.
“Earlier yesterday, The Unknown sent us some evidences and the location of where we could find Chief. The evidences showed that it was Chief Sam. He was also the one who killed the board of directors of Golden Ring Companies.”
If only you know he’s not the only one and killed our parents too and also he’s willing to kill anyone. If only you know I’m The Unknown, I wonder what you will do.” He thought.
“That’s too bad! The people that were murdered made you leave the dining room angrily, right?” Stella questioned.
“Exactly! Just because of contract.”
“People are so wicked! Nicholas, say something.” Stella faced him.
“Urgh… hmm.. people are really villainous! Thank God for The Unknown, but he shouldn’t have let my small sister run into problem.”
Doris laughed. “He didn’t. I was on duty and had to arrest Chief Sam where he said he tied him. But things went worse that day as there was a shootout between us and those bad men of Chief. I just remember I was hit and I fainted. Waking up, I met myself amidst them, mocking me.”
“Wao! Thanks to that person then. If not for him, what would have happened? But, I would have come myself.” He grinned.
“Liar! You this small boy with small guts.” Stella pulled out her tongue and laughed.
He chuckled. “I am a brave one too now.”
“I see.. I am sure you can’t do a quarter of what that guy did for me.
He laughed. See mouth, you’ll eventually know.. when the race gets finished. “Anyway, let me just catch that guy!”
“He will just lob you away.” Doris laughed.
“Naughty little sister.” He hit her slightly and grinned.
Craig walked inside. “I’m glad to meet everyone this way.”
“We’ve been discussing about that naughty guy who got you people into trouble.”
“Naughty guy? Who?” Craig squinted his face.
“Don’t mind him, he’s talking about The Unknown.” Doris replied.
Craig chuckled. “A great man. Thank God for him, who knows what would have happened.”
“But, do you know that lady you went out with?” Nicholas asked Craig.
“Would I have gone out with a lady I don’t know? She’s my.. ex-lover.” He drawled.
He cleared his throat and winked. “You also do those things, right? Use them and dump them.” He grinned.
Craig laughed. “Nicholas, please I’m just brewing on how investigations can continue oh.”
“But, she’s pretty, you shouldn’t have left her that way.”
“She broke up with me for no tangible reason. But, I don’t know why she came today. And, about The Unknown, he’s a very good person but we still have to get him too.”
“Really?” Stella asked.
“Sure! He’s not doing right by taking laws into his hands, he should have contacted the station at once. Though, he never killed, but his acts were wrong.”
“Just arrest anyone ‘arrestable’ and make this kingdom better.” Nicholas chuckled. I’m getting into trouble gradually. I just have to be very careful!..
Let’s meet at Tracey Foods for lunch this afternoon by 2pm, we have a lot to discuss- Nancy.
Nicholas received the text message and swooshed out a long breath.
Nicholas picked up Nancy at the agreed venue for them to visit Tracey Foods for lunch that afternoon. “We have a lot to discuss.” She had told him as soon as he picked her up.
Nicholas just glanced at her and drove off.
He just kept mute
As promised, Vivian and Anthony were just coming back from church service when she decided to take Anthony out for lunch. “Let’s visit Tracey Foods.” She told him as they mounted on the motorcycle.
“Is the place beautiful?” Anthony asked putting his pen to his right hand
“What’s your own business with that? We are concerned about the food and I am sure they prepare nice foods.”
Vivian and Anthony were about to enter into the eatery when Anthony’s pen dropped accidentally. He walked in with his mother, beaming. It had been a while he came to eat in a eatery with his mother. “This place is fine.” He grinned placing his hand into her mother’s hand.
“I know you’re going to like this place. Go and sit while I place an order.”
“Okay mum.” Anthony smiled and walked to a seat when he noticed his pen had fallen.
He started searching for it till he got outside and picked it up. Raising his head, he saw Nicholas and greeted him. “How are you?” Nicholas smiled and waved at him.
Anthony could see a guitar standing on the back seat and got attracted to Nicholas. He was smiling as he moved closer to him. “Sir, can you play guitar?” He enquired.
Nicholas grinned. “Yes. You like guitar?”
“Sure. my mother bought one for me but I don’t know how to play it.”
“Really? What’s your name?” He enquired.
“Anthony.” He replied, smiling.
“Mr man! I don’t like this place any longer, let’s go to Divine Foods.” Nancy told Nicholas.
Nicholas hurtled a gaze at her. “What do you mean? You told us to come here now.”
“But now I don’t know why I don’t like it any longer. Let’s go.”
He sighed. “I’ll see you later, Anthony.” He grinned and waved at Anthony.
Anthony felt bad and waved back. As Nicholas entered into his capacity and kicked the engine, Anthony noticed something. We have the same scent! He paper-thinned his eyes at the surprise.
Vivian rushed out to meet Anthony but Nicholas had pulled out already. As she raised her head to see the person in the car, the car sped off. “What’s happening, Anthony?” Vivian asked him.
Anthony looked sad already. “I came to search for my pen and met that man driving that car.” He replied.
Vivian hissed silently and shook her head. “So, what about him? Let’s go inside.” She pulled him.
“He said he could play guitar well. I saw the guitar at the back seat of his car but a lady shouted at him that they should get going.”
“Have I never told you not to talk to strangers before?! Anthony what’s your problem with this guitar? What if the person is a kidnapper?” She frowned.
“He didn’t look like one.” He replied sadly.
“Do they write it on foreheads? Don’t get me annoyed, Anthony.”
“One thing I just notice is that we have the same scent. Even how scarce our perfume is, he uses the same type.”
Vivian widened her eyes. “Really?”
“Yes now.” He replied childishly.
“But did you ask of his name?” Vivian enquired.
“I was about doing so when the woman shouted at him and both left.” He narrowed his eyes suddenly and threw a gaze at her. “Mum, didn’t you just tell me not to interfere with strangers?”
“Shut up! Instead of asking about guitar, you should have enquired about his name. But, he was with a lady.. right?”
“Yes. But, why mum?”
“Nothing. Just wondering if they came here to play guitar.” Her smiled faintly.
“I like the man. If it was another person, he would have scolded me. I like nice people.”
“But, did he use a necklace?”
Anthony thought for a while. “I don’t think so.”
“Let’s go inside before the food gets cold.” She pushed him forward and kept looking backward. “Was that Nicholas?” She kept wondering
