Working throughout the day was so hectic, that I had to come home earlier than expected,i drove in with my suit tied round my neck
But to my greatest surprise ,I found the house empty, my wife wasn’t at home, the whole house was just empty,
I brought out my phone to call her
***Dear Customer, the number you’re trying to call is currently switched off, please try again later**** the computer said it on phone
Hearing this I was so worried
Minutes later, I called in Salimi,the gateman
“Yes my Oga”He said as he rushed in with his oversized uniform
“How are you baba?”
“I’m fine, my Oga”
“Ehm,where madam go?”I asked with a puzzled look
“Ahah, she tell me say she dey go market and hin Don tey wey she go out since morning and I never see am o”He explained
“Are you sure?”I questioned
“Yes sir Oga”Salimi replied
“Okay you can go”i said giving him a wavy hand
****what could have happened, where did she go to, she didn’t tell me she was going out now***I began to soliloquize
Not even up to a minutes, my phone began to ring,
****I picked it up****
“Hello”
The caller:-(with a bold voice) Mr man, how are you
Me:-**I was afraid*** I’m fine
The Caller:- See, you don’t need to be worried about your wife,she enjoying here with me **laughs hysterically***

The caller:-(to my wife ) ***paaaa*** Shut up you son if a b—h
**wait did I just hear a slap*** I thought
Me:-please don’t do anything to my wife please, name any amount you want please!!!! ***I pleaded****
The Caller:- if you don’t want to come here to meet your wife’s corpse, it would be better to do what we want
