"Are you mad?"
That was the first statement that jolted me back to life. The trailer didn't hit me. Apperently, the driver seemed very experienced in situations like this. My eyes opened to meet a furious driver hitting his car in anger.
"If you wanted to die. You should have taken rat poison instead of saving yourself this stress. Why do you want to implicate me? I can barely make ends meet." He screamed.
"I am so sorry sir. I didn't mean to jump in front of the road ,I am injured sir. Please help me." I said dropping on my knees.
The driver inspected my injuries carefully, drinking in the possibilities of leaving me on the road to die or taking me to an hospital.
"Are you an armed robber."He said taking few steps backward.
"No sir, I was kidnapped." I said panting heavily.
"Alright, I'll get you to a h
JOHN'S POVA part of me felt pity for James and another part was giving in to less concern. I shifted comfortably on the chair wondering how James was ever hospitalized. He might have had cancer, I thought sheepishly. I shifted my head in confusion as the first ray of sunlight entered into my eye and I whispered silently. I stood up and adjusted the window blinds and the door knob shifted again to give a spotlight view of a stunning Eniola in a white gown."Good morning." Eniola greeted shly."Good morning Eni."I said smiling, letting go of the window blinds."Thank you for yesterday." Eniola said dropping a foodflask on my desk."I figured you might not have had breakfast." Eniola continued smiling."Oh yeah. Thank you." I said chuckling.Eniola smiled once more and left. Throughout our brief conversat
JOHN'S POV"What are you doing here?" Mary screamed."And why are you driving James's car?" Mary added."It's not the way you think it is." I said, opening the car door."Tell me the way it is then." Mary said vibrating her leg in an angry manner."You see, James went on a holiday and he didn't want to tell you because you might worry." I said, placing a trembling hand in my pocket."Then why are you with his phone?" Mary asked, raising a brow."He said you disturb him a lot." I said wearing a fake smile.Suddenly she held me by the hem of my suit and screamed."What have you done to your brother?" Mary yelled."How many times do I have to explain that he travelled?" I said raising my arms in pretense."And by the way I just came to relay the message. I would
ENIOLA'S POVKemi dragged my braids backward with a force that was shocking and she garnished my face with a beautiful smack."What do you think you have just done?" I cried out, holding the agonized cheek."I just taught you how to respect people." Kemi said smoothing her hair.I made to drag Kemi by her indecent top but I was stopped by John who stood between us acting as a peacemaker."Why are you stopping me from disciplining her?" I screamed, holding out my right hand."I won't allow my office to be a boxing ring." John said smiling."Let me bring the thunder on her." I retorted, lurging for Kemi's neck."The only thunder you are bringing is by being mature." John yelled, folding his arms meticulously."Alright." I whined, bolting the door. &nb
JOHN'S POVI took one last look at myself in the three quartered mirror in my office to access my look. The suit stuck and clinged to me like a second skin. I knew I was already adding weight. Today was the final hearing of Mr Olugoke. It was a bright Monday morning. Everything felt normal and sequential. There were no news of James but I hoped that he was alright. The tie was laying on the desk but I had no idea how to use it on my neck. The previous ones I used were already laid and crafted in the wardrobe."Do you need help with that?" Eniola said, opening the door slightly."Sure, I had no idea you were there." I chuckled.Eniola walked up to me wearing a grin, she placed a hand on the desk to pick up the tie and threw the tie on my neck. Eniola looked short even though she was in heels. At a point, I felt like a teenager. My heart was beating rapidly because of her soft hands d
JOHN'S POVFor the first time in my fake world, I was delighted with myself. I was basking in the glory of finishing a case without breaking a sweat and everything was made easy with Eniola. I heard quick strides of heels and I knew who it was without looking back."Great job." Eniola said, patting me on the shoulders slightly."I know. I am the best." I said blushing furiously.We walked to the office, giving each other brief smiles as I was too happy to wonder what would become of Mariam. As soon as I turned the door knob, Kemi jumped in my face holding fries and chicken wings in a bowl. Eniola's face turned to a scrowl as she leaned on the door with a stuttering elegance that looked more stunning than a model on the runway."Don't you know that it's unhealthy to give your boss such food at noon? Don't you know it contain so much sugar that would lead to diabetes
ENIOLA'S POVMy face was completely squeezed in anger as I entered the court lounge. A group of female lawyers were cramming some legal terms and I was extremely pissed. I walked further away, drenching my mind into the events that happened few minutes ago. I thought James would have changed his mentality of selling his soul for money. He looked like he had changed for a moment but his animalistic behavior broke it.I hissed aloud, but failed to notice a female figure colliding against mine and the spillage of tea on the figure. I was relieved that the tea didn't ruin my expensive white shirt or the heavens might open consequently. I pushed her aside harshly and stamped my heels on the ground to prevent me from slipping.I was about to begin walking when the female figure caught my arm and screamed at me."Can't you say sorry? Haven't you seen the damage of what you have done?" She
JAMES'S POVThe cock crowed thrice indicating morning but I could not deny seeing Tolani. I barely slept as my thoughts were filled with clashes of agitation and despair. I folded my knees still in that same position of the previous day. It was terribly hot but I was trembling like a leaf. I turned slowly, cautiously and daringly to look at Tolani. But her bed was empty. I let out a huge sigh of relief. I rolled to turn to the other side of the bed.A nurse walked up to me wearing a pregnant smile."Good morning sir, How are you feeling?" She said, touching me on my shoulders."I think I am feeling better. When will I be discharged?" I said hastily."Probably in a week or two." She replied, reassuringly."Maybe in a month, if necessary." She added."No, that's too long. You don't understand. My life is in danger. I need to leave now." I said, droppin
ENIOLA'S POV "Why did you hit me so hard? What if I wasn't wearing a thick scarf?" Kemi whined, as I passed a bottle of ice to her."How did you expect me to know it was you? I thought it was the thieves of the night." I countered, taking a glass of water."I am sure you did it deliberately." Kemi scoffed, whimpering in pain."What are you doing in my house at this odd hour of the night? And how did you get my address? I inquired, shifting my position on the couch."Well you haven't been to the office in two days, you left some of your files on your desk and I guess I opened it." Kemi replied, placing a leg on the centre table in the living room."You opened my files? That's infringement of human privacy." I yelled, folding my arms angrily."And get your leg off my table." I added.
