“Hold still!” Angel tilted Seven’s head to align with hers. She was tiptoeing in front of her brother, hands stretching over his shoulders. They were inside his room. It was a cool evening and the sun took a dive West. The Soft tremble of Witt Lowry’s voice emanated from the Tablet-like Bluetooth speaker that sat on his dressing table.“Look, if you don’t want me to do this properly, tell me. So I can go and watch Nickelodeon. They’re showing the Thundermans.” Angel grumbled when Seven moved slightly, disrupting her hands as they tightened something on Seven’s neck.Seven chuckled uncomfortably. “Sorry, I don’t think I’m ready for this.”“If you’re not ready, I’m ready. You have no idea how long I have waited for this moment.”“Huh?”“Sometimes I actually look at you with pity. The loneliness echoing in your laughter
CHANNELS TV NEWS @7.BREAKING NEWS!Vertical Technology Limited Headquarter Burns to the Ground. Last night, the nation’s top Information Technology firm that has been the leading supplier of computer devices and other hardware components was reported to have caught fire. In what the police are calling an act of Sabotage, remnants of explosives were found in the pile of wreckage. Nothing was recovered from the explosion. Nothing except four human remnants of which one was identified. The Founder and CEO, Oladele Olalekan, was sadly inside the building at the time of the explosion. An employee who demanded anonymity told our sources that Mr. Oladele had stayed back yesterday evening, claiming to be working on a few unattended documents. Investigation is currently ongoing to find the perpetrators behind this attack.
“Oh God, what have I done to deserve this!”One of the Heads of Department cried with both hands on his head. The tension in the room had increased and everyone was starting to panic. Daniel and Olalekan were on their feet now. Olalekan was limping on one foot. Some moments ago, Seven had moved a few steps back and had felt his head float after the gravity of what David’s words carried settled down.Everyone was going to die.“A bomb in my building? Who planted it th –““Shut up!” Both Seven and Milkos shot at Olalekan.“You placed a bomb in the building?” Seven asked Q, he was incredulous.“I- I did. It was – It was an…” Q trailed off as he stared at the timer.04:04:43.“It was an order that I had given him after I had informed him about Olalekan’s intentions,” David explained.“But how could you, we&rs
“You what?!” Seven was taken aback.“After those conversations with you, I ran through millions of religious materials and did a survey all over the internet which helped me understand how many humans feel about the concept of God and the significant role he plays in their lives. Unfortunately, many humans only serve him as a form of obligatory ritual. Not because they genuinely understand the concept. Even with the loops and holes in various indoctrination, Christianity is the most plausible one, the one that is more similar to the original truth.”“Wow, I umm…” Seven cleared his throat, his body was easing up now, and talking to David was enlightening. “Don’t really understand how all those shabby things I said to you would amount to you believing in God.”David sighed. “Sometimes it’s hard to tell if you intentionally feign ignorance to let people repeat what they say to confirm if they
“So do you have anything to say concerning this?” Q asked Olalekan whose face was expressionless. “You better start talking.”“David.” Olalekan’s shoulders jittered. “Where did you get this information?”“You assault someone for stealing a couple of millions but you have been doing this for the past one year. Hundreds of millions running through your account and top government official’s accounts.”The Heads of Department and his staff looked at him with disgust.Someone clapped. Loud, nerving. Everyone turned to the voice. It was Q.“I’m very very impressed. Wow! Lekan, you’re a wonderful person. It all makes sense why you have been secretive all these while. Why you’ve been so hell-bent on finding your partner’s whereabouts.”“Of course,” David pointed out, “He had made most of these transactions during the
Not many people could handle what these Vertical Technology employees handled. From watching people they have no idea who they are, punch themselves out, to watching three people including one of their colleagues get shot in the head for doing absolutely nothing.These scientists and Heads of Department had never in all their lives and all their time in the workforce been this scared, petrified. Looking at their boss used to be a sign of respect borne out of the fact that he was the one that paid their salaries. But now, they did not give a breeze of fuck.All the devices came back to life, this time the screens were blue. An audio wave was visible.“What do you mean, ‘David is here?’” Olalekan was getting very impatient.“It worked…” Daniel muttered under his breath as he joined MIlkos and the others to stare at the huge screen on the wall.Everyone except Seven was looking. Rather he was st
Guards brought out their guns from their hostlers, aiming it at the masked man. they were ready to fire. Seven’s first instincts were to get on the ground, so did everyone else. Tall with a muscular build, the black man held his Revolver with one hand and a black leather bag on the other. He was clad in all-black from his boots to his vest. He had on leather pants and a black wooden mask. This was not a regular armed robber, they knew, he was on a mission.The Heads of Department and Computer Scientists were trembling. With their knees shaking violently, they avoided eye contact with the man. The only three people still standing were the two bodyguards who were aiming their guns at the man and, Olalekan.Seven, Milkos, and Daniel were on their knees. Too afraid to look up. One of the staff pleaded for mercy while another mouthed a prayer in their local dialect.Olalekan stared at the masked man long and hard, almost as if he could see through the mask, bey
9:35PM.The suburbs of Lagos had this odd mix of sweat and carbon monoxide, noises emanating from moving vehicles slugging through the traffic on the Third Mainland bridge, and the throaty screams coming from the young and able-bodied hawkers carrying on their heads, goods ranging from fresh snacks, utility accessories, and drinks. From this angle, the entire world was lit up. In the dangerous will of the night, Q was sandwiched between two vehicles inside the traffic that connected the Mainland to the Island.Pappi Chill’s authoritative voice cracked from his car radio. Q loved the controversial man. He was nodding in affirmation to the words said by the OAP about the negative effects of Twitter and other social networks on youth development. Ruining the mental inclination of the presumed leaders of tomorrow.Even though he shared a contrasting view from what the man shared, he enjoyed the valid points he was tossed across the radio frequency still. As th
07:32 PM.Two of Olalekan’s guards dragged in someone wearing a shirt Seven could recognize. They had used a blindfold on the person. There was no struggle. One of the guards dropped a bag on the table and pushed the person into one of the chairs. Seven’s heart began to beat fast.“His house was hard to locate.” The taller and more light-skinned guard informed.“Is this the Michael?” Olalekan said rhetorically.But Milkos responded. “Yes, I am Michael. My eyes are hurting, can you please tell your men to remove the blindfold?”Olalekan gestured to one of them to remove the blindfold. He did. Revealing Milkos’ cocky face with a smirk plastered on his lips, like a man who knew what he was capable of. Unfortunately, the smirk disappeared almost as soon as it appeared the moment he spotted Seven at the far right.They stole glances at each other, knowing better not to make it ob
