“Madam.. em… what’s even her name? Madam Beatrice told me to clean the kitchen and everywhere in the house. That’s what I have been doing, Sir.” He shook as he told him.
“It was my daughter that told you to clean all the rooms in this house?” He asked again.
“Yes.. yes sir.”
“Alright, no problem. No problem at all. Next time I meet you inside this room or next time you just enter into anyone’s room without prior permission or notice, you’re dead!”
“Yes sir.” He shivered and made his way out of the room.
But looking outside to clear his evil thoughts, his mind struck it again and he picked his phone to call Beatrice. He needed to know if she really sent him to clean the house.
“Hmmn..” he giggled. “None. But, I just remembered something.” He looked at her as he halted.
Doris stopped too. “What is it?”
“The Unknown and the little boy share the same redolence. They have the same scent, same perfume! Forever Mine.”
“Really? Let’s go and check the list of those who do order for the perfume.”
At least the deed had been done, the throne shouldn’t be left empty for a long time. It was two weeks already and the King had been buried. Everyone was getting off the death of the King and expecting the new King to step on the throne.
But as tradition had it, Prince Dennis must have a wife before he would be crowned as the next King of Taraka Kingdom.
“Your wife, our Queen.” Harry who had been laughing said from his seat.
“Yes, let my wife come in.” Prince Dennis said and the door was opened unto Margaret to come in. “Here she is.” He added.
Harry raised his head and saw the Margaret that he had been looking for. “No!” He shouted as every one started prostrating for the new King and Queen

Doris and Craig hurtled their gazes at the enveloped to the recent buyers of the perfume to their Kingdom. “Nicholas Smithson.” Craig raised his head and looked at Doris. “Is this Nicholas?”
“Yes.” She replied.
“You never told me he uses this same perfume.” Craig said.
“I thought that wasn’t necessary. At least you have seen him severally, you must have sniffed his scent. By the way, Nicholas, off all people.”
Craig looked away. “What of Matthias Victoria, do you know her?” He asked.
“No.” Doris shook her head.
“They are just ten. I said it, this perfume isn’t popular here. We just have to contact all the remaining nine of them, but, do you think Nicholas can do this?”
“Nicholas? Firstly, the day The Unknown saved me from those men at Chief Sam’s place, his voice was husky. By the way, the night The Unknown came to save me in the forest, Nicholas was at Prince Edward’s place, performing for Prince’s birthday.”
“Okay. Now I understand.” He said as he took a second look at the list. “We can contact all these nine through their various house addresses.” He said.
“But, how did they know the address to their houses?”
“When you order for something, won’t you put your house address?”
Engineer Ashley just ended the call between himself and his daughter. Beatrice never told mike to clean the house, so, what exactly was he doing there? Engineer wondered as he took in a long breath.
He picked his phone and dialed a number. “Where can we meet? I have a business for you.” He said.
“On my way.” He said and ended the call.
He turn his wrist and stared at the watch. “Alright, when you get to the office, just park and get down. I’ll drive myself to where I want to visit.” He told his driver
“Yes sir.” The driver replied.
“My love.” Beatrice grinned as she walked into the Prince’s office.
Prince Edward laughed. “Beatrice, what a surprise!”
“That’s who I am.” She settled down.
“You look so sexy.” He teased her as he sat down too.
“You look so handsome.” She beamed and looked around. “I love this set-up of your office.”
“Ooh.. don’t mind me.” Prince laughed. “What would you like to take?”
“Em.. wait, let’s take this in a steady way.” Beatrice chortled.
“By the way, where’s your handbag? Okay, you left them in the car?” He asked.
“No. My phones and handbag are with my P.A, she’s outside there, with the Secretary.”
“Won’t you let her meet me?” He looked at her closely.
“Okay.” She smiled and walked to the door to call Vivian in.
Vivian walked in and bowed on seeing the Prince. “Good morning, my Prince.”
Prince just kept looking at her. “Are you the Vivian..?”
Vivian raised her head. “Yes. Hope there’s no problem?”
“Urgh… em.. welcome.” He grinned.
“And why are you looking at her this way?” Beatrice accused the Prince.
“Urgh… was wondering where you got a beautiful P.A.” He winked.
“And what’s the meaning of that?” Beatrice rolled her eyes and hissed.
“I’m being honest with you. But, she’s not as beautiful as my Beatrice.” He did the needful quickly.
Beatrice smiled and dropped her head down in shyness. Raising her head again, she saw Prince’s eyes fixed on Vivian.
“Prince!” She shouted.
Prince Harry just kept looking at Margaret. It was the exact lady he saved! He jacked his head and looked at her again. “We are getting married in two weeks’ time.” Dennis spoke from his seat.
“All is well, we are ready.” One of the Chiefs spoke happily.
Harry stood angrily and left the scene for his room. He jumped on his bed, rolling from an edge to another in anger as he remembered how he saved Margaret and killed the native Doctor because she got missing.
He was so indignant and sprung up to his feet as he stood before the mirror in his room and clouted it angrily.
Beatrice stood angrily and looked at Vivian with grimace. She hissed as she dashed out of the office and Vivian rushed after her. She was impatient because the Prince kept looking at Vivian. “Ma’am, wait.” Vivian said as she almost got behind her.
Beatrice halted and looked at her angrily. She walked closer and landed a slap on her left cheek. Vivian held on to her cheek and looked at her. She wasn’t suppose to be in that condition if not for Nicholas.
If she never lost contact with him, wouldn’t she be a married woman too? Wouldn’t she be working in a better place? She had thought as she raised her hand to slap her too but felt it wasn’t right to do. She could control her anger.
She dropped her handbag and mobile phone on her car and walked out of the company. The Prince had gotten outside too and walked close to Beatrice. “Why do you have weird thoughts?”
“Save me that!” She stretched forth her right hand and picked up her things on the car. She walked into the car and honked for the gatekeeper to get the gate opened. Then, she drove out.
Prince sighed as she watched her leave. Just then, he entered into his car too and drove out.
“Engineer, what’s happening?” Jerry asked Engineer Ashley as they both settled down in a cool eatery.
“Serious business, Jerry.” He looked right and left. “I want you to execute someone.” He said.
Jerry chuckled. “Is that what you couldn’t tell me over the phone? Who’s it?” He asked him.
“Wait, you know this person called The Unknown, right?” He asked.
“Sure. Who doesn’t know the unfortunate being that exposed Chief Sam? Engineer, I feel Chief will expose the secret.”
“No. I went to the station some days back and we spoke. He said he wouldn’t do such a thing. He just need us to help him out before he would be sentenced to prison because the evidences against him are very strong.”
Jerry smiled. “So, have you found The Unknown?”
“No. But I just employed a cook. I feel he was sent to spy. Who knows if he knows us all and wants me to be the second catch?”
Jerry laughed. “What makes you suspect the guy?”
“I caught him in my room searching. Anyways, just get him killed.”
“Killed? I feel we should firstly torture him, then, if he doesn’t listen to us within twenty-four hours, we gonna waste him.”
“Ooh.. that’s a nice idea. Get him, now!”
“Consider it done Engineer. My guys and I will storm your house immediately I leave here.”
“No problem, just keep me update about everything.” He said.
“That’s alright, Engineer.”
Henry had given up on the fried rice. He felt it would get cold before the arrival of the ladies. So, he decided to take a nap. He had been dreaming of himself and Lizzy together, with smiles on his face as he slept on.
Suddenly, the door was broken and he woke up. A handkerchief was pressed on his nose for a while and he slept off.
