It had since passed bed time, and was no longer a time to reflect on sad memories or long talks. Jude then suggested to Elohor that they should sign-off for the day as they both started walking beside each other through the staircase while Jude positioned his hand on her waistline and they finally made into his bedroom. The Masterpiece bedroom was dimly lit which had a Queen-sized bed at the Northern corner of the room. Despite having a large space which could occupy about five persons if the need was necessary, Jude insisted that Elohor sleep alone as he opted to spend the night at his Visitor’s room.
Moments later, Elo switched back her cell phone from Airplane mode to behold tons of Missed calls and Text messages from the collaborative unit of the ‘FBI’ in conjunction with the Nigerian police. They had sent her on this undercover mission and were desperate to know whether she was safe and to also ascertain what she was able to garner from her investigation.
The Bank had provided the Police with footage of Jude which was captured by the Surveillance camera situated at the Bank Premises on the day of the Robbery operation. For about two months, they had been trying to unravel his identity without disclosing this information to the public. The investigative unit further went to secretly mount his finger biometrics to every Supermarket, Event outlet, Bank, and other Business centres that had ‘CCTV’ enabled facility mounted in its organisation. Eventually, they found out his complete details and were able to put a tracker on him which later led them to his house. But trying to play smart, they decided not to act swiftly and resolved to set him up using a woman in order not to hinder their effort to apprehend other members of the Gang.
Elo then shortly put a call through to the investigative unit and spoke with the leader of the team. She spoke slightly below her voice, and made known to the leader that she was doing all right but currently had no knowledge of the suspect’s whereabout. While she claimed to have spoken with him and eventually seeing the movie with him, she lied that he failed to succumb to her tactics, hence, she was unable to find out further details about him. She lied again that he left the scene without her and she struggled out in the dark to get a cab back to her house, but promised to improve her game next time. It was evident enough that Elo was already becoming head over heels toward jude; She wasn’t sure whether she was making the right decision but then, from the religious angle, she saw a God in Jude, and hoped that he could one day see the light and become a better man. Perhaps, God was using her to touch his life for good, or so she thought.
Betterstill, the Devil was once an Angel, same way an Angel could turn to become the Devil, but either way; she wanted to have a perfect blend between Good and Evil as a way of reporting the story in the most exceptional way. More so, when you decide to Dine and Wine with the Devil, you should always expect the unexpected.
ONE WEEK AFTER
Jude and Elo had been able to develop a greater bond between each other their rapport grew rapidly as though they had known each other for ages. After Elo left his house the following day, they kept communicating more frequently, met on several occasions and soon started behaving like lovers. Their friendship had suddenly transformed into an unofficial relationship, except of course – should Jude take a bold step in asking her to be his girlfriend.
However, Jude had planned to profess his love to her, and make his intention known toward her as he had fixed a date for the both of them at a Classy Restaurant. The Night for the date finally came and they met at a Rendezvous. The tryst was beautifully decorated with good music, flashy lights and candle themed dinner. They made their orders to the server and the foods were shortly served. They discussed about different things, especially about themselves and it gets to a point when Jude magically unveiled a Black-box with a diamond ring placed inside, and then popped the big question.
“Will you be my girlfriend?” Jude romantically enquired with a racing heart while squatting one of his knees on the tiled floor.
Elo was then shocked by his proposal; Even though she loved him, she didn’t expected him to propose so quickly. But after remaining silent for a while, she broke the silence still.
“Can you die for love?” Elo asked while staring at him with a straight face. Jude became stunned by her question. He had not expected her to be sarcastic with such a serious matter.
“Pardon! Is that your own way of evaluating my love for you?” He retorted by answering her question with another question
“C’mon babe, don’t be mad at the question. I don’t mean to trample on your feelings. I just had a dream that…” She was saying.
“Ain’t nobody talking about no dream here. This is reality girl. Be real with me. Is it a ‘Yay’ or a ‘Nay’?” Jude interrupted and dropped the tongue wagging bombshell while switching to the African-American diction which had a huge influence in his original accent.
“A’ight! I’m sorry Babe.. Didn’t mean to offend you. I’ll gladly be your woman anyday, Yay!” She accepted his request and smiled while they lovingly stood up to hug one another. Just then, Elo saw two detectives from the police station whom she could clearly identify wandering about at an extreme in the restaurant, then her mood suddenly changed.
“You know what Babe, as a matter of urgency, I think we should start leaving!” She Lamented.
“Start leaving?! We had barely finished our meal. Why the sudden rush?” Jude asked a thousand questions at once.
“It’s nothing. I just have a bad sensation that something uncool may happen here tonight, and we may as well be doomed if we don’t leave here right now.” She asserted and held his hand firmly while they began leaving the venue following another exit route.
In the end, Jude kind of suspected that something fishy went on, but decided to allow the thought slide not wanting to start up an argument.
They eventually reached Jude’s apartment without having much to say to each other before arriving home. Somehow, Jude was able to weather the storm as the date practically continued at his sitting-room. He had reached for a bottle of wine from his shelf filled with collection of assorted wines and alcoholic beverages. They made a toast, drank and danced to the fullest, the mood was becoming heated and before you could say ‘Jack Bauer’ they started stripping themselves unclad, and Jude proceeded to give her a hot blown sex of her life. After the deed was done, they both instantaneously forgot themselves and slept off half-unclad in the sitting-room, but in the dawn of the following morning, an uninvited guest crashed into the house and there was trouble…
