**STILL SAME NIGHT – SPARTACUS’ LAIR**
….Spartacus turned around immediately and pointed a gun at her. On seeing that, she raised her hands up shivering infear
”pLease I’m Sorry, Please don’t shoot me please” Natasha pleaded but Spartacuswas still pointing the gun at her
” Please, I’m begging you, don’t kill me please” Natasha pleaded in much more fear and Spartacus brought down the gun
”What are you doing outside here?” Spartacus asked Natasha who exhaled heavily and brought down her hands
”Nothing” Natasha said
”Don’t you remove that mask even by night fall?” Natasha asked immediately before Spartacus could saying anything further and Spartacus looked at her but didn’t reply. He continued starring at the stars and Natasha walked very close to him relaxing her elbows on the iron bars following his eyes towards the stars.
”Why haven’t you killed me or taken me back to Chief Williams?? Why are you being this hospitable. Since I came here you haven’t touched me” Natasha said not bothering what might happen to her but Spartacus still didn’t say anything.
”Don’t you talk anymore?” Natasha asked
”After I told you my story, you said you’ve got a change of plans.. What was it about?? Was it about me??” Natasha asked
”The weak are not supposed to be left in oppresion” Spartacus said not looking at her
”What do you mean?” Natasha asked
”You have been used ruthlessly because you are weak, I have to end that” Spartacus said and Natasha was surprised
”How.. Why??” Natasha asked
”I told Chief Williams that I couldn’t find you, so you are free from him” Spartacus said
”By morning you should leave here and go to any place of your choice outside this State” Spartacus said and concentrated on the stars. Natasha couldn’t smile or laugh as she was filled in Surprise
”I know you are joking right?” Natasha asked
”Spartacus does not joke” Spartacus said and Natasha hugged him immediately but he broke the hug by sliding out a knife immediately
”Don’t come any closer to me my dear, or you will leave me no choice” Spartacus said and Natasha drew back
”If you are as kind as this and fighting for the weak, why then do you kill people and kidnap people?” Natasha asked and Spartacus looked at her deeply in silence but said nothing.
”Those stars, why are you starring at them since I was here” Natasha asked
”Those stars are my life, different sizes from big to small” Spartacus began and Natasha gave an attantive ear
”If you watch closely, those three big ones are dim in light but the small one is very bright” Spartacus said
”Why Is it so?” Natasha asked but Spartacus ignored her question
”Once, all the stars were glowing very bright, but now, one is left alone” Spartacus said and Natasha being intelligent grabbed the words of Spartacus
”You mean you lost your family just like I did?” Natasha asked
”Likely in a harsh manner” Spartacus replied
”So, that’s why you saved me” Natasha said to herself
”Life can really turn people into what they never want to be” Natasha said and stood in silence
”go in, pack your bag, sleep and get ready to leave this premises tomorrow morning” Spartacus said but Natasha still stood there
”I said Leave now!” Spartacus barked at her and she ran inside immediately
”I miss you all…” Spartacus said looking at the stars and he went inside also.
THE NEXT MORNING
”Make sure you never come back to this city ever or Chief Williams will kill you” Spartacus said walking behind Natasha on the staircase.
”Thank You Sir. I really appreciate this Sir” Natasha said and opened the door. Spartacus nodded his head at her and she left… Immediately she left, Spartacus unmasked himself and his eyes were red and anger and tears..
LATER THAT DAY
”Bella my dear, I’m so happy” Cynthia said happily to Bella her friend who sat beside her on the couch in Cynthia’s house
”Seriously, babe, what’s the secret..? You haven’t been this happy for weeks now” Bella said
”My dear, My dad has agreed to leave Country and everything” Cynthia said
”You mean, he wants to leave his political career and go to the states with your mother?” Bella asked looking disappointed
”Yes Of Course” Cynthia said breaking her smiles a bit
”Why?” Bella asked
”You won’t understand my dear.. It’s complicated.. Abeg, let’s talk about better things jhoor.. Today I am very happy” Cynthis said jumping up and down on the couch happily
”I’m also happy for you my dear” Bella pretended so as not to cause any Friendly noise around the buildin and they drank their wine chatting with smiles and laughter…
CHIEF WILLIAM’S RESIDENCE
Chief Williams was seen walking around his compound with his phone on his ears speaking with someone that seemed very important from the way he was answering the call.. Few minutes later, a car horn was heard from the outside and Alhaji, his gateman ran to Open the gate. Chief Williams looked towards the gate still answering the call to see who it was. On seeing that it was Prof. Mich’s car, he quickly hung up the call and stood still. Just then, Prof. Michael alighted form the car with two dark hefty tough looking men and a fair one who seemed not to be as huge as the other two..
”Are these the urchins I told you to get for me?” Chief Williams asked even before Prof. Michael could exchange pleasantries with him
”Yes, they are the best” Prof. Michael said
”How sure are you?” Chief Williams asked
”Huh?? Chief, are you now doubting my capabilities?” Prof. Mich asked rhetorically
”No.. I’m certainly not, just to know if they can be trusted” Chief Williams said and looked at the men
”Hey, what are your names?” Chief Williams asked
”Patronizer Sir” The first dark one said
”Hmmm.. You?” Chief Williams asked the second one
”Killer bean Sir” He answered and Chief Williams starred at him
”And you?” He turned to the fair guy
”Sir Whyte Sir” The fair guy said and Chief Williams nodded his head
”Fully armed?” He asked Prof. Michael
”Yes Chief..” Prof. Michael replied and escorted the guys inside
”If it’s not enough, I’ll get more ammunitions for them” Chief Williams said and continued his call..
Few minutes later, Prof. Michael came back outside and looked at Chief Williams
”Why the eyes?” Chief Williams asked
”You do not look bright” Prof. Michael said
”Yes of course, that’s because my enemy is trying to escape my net” Chief Williams said
”And who is that?” Prof. Michael asked
”Chief Wilson.. I learnt he is planning to fly back to the States in few days time” Chief Williams said
”Then act immediately Chief.. Act!!” Prof. Michael said to him
”I am beginning to loose trust on Spartacus these days” Chief Williams added and Prof. Michael was shocked
”Why?” He asked
”I just don’t know.. Just a feeling” Chief Williams said
”Better drop those feelings Chief and defeat your enemies” Prof. Michael said, flinged his car keys and drove off.
”Sir Whyte!!!” Chief Williams called out and Sir Whyte ran out immediately
”Get me something cold” Chief Williams said and sat under the fancy tree where he was.
”See, Stephen, I don’t know what went wrong with me last week but please I’m sorry” Linda pleaded to Stephen her colleague as they walked down the Passage of their Office
”And you think I’ll accept that?” Stephen asked
”Of course Yes” Linda said
”Then you must be a joker.. Trying to make me loose a huge sum of money for nothing I know about” Stephen said and hissed walking faster than her
”Stephen.. Stephen.. ” She called out but he didn’t reply so she walked to her Office and sat down immediately.. On sitting down, her phone got a text
”See me during break hours” Stephen said and Linda was surprised at the text..
”Good day” Linda greeted walking majestically into Stephens’ office.
”I guess it’s been long I’ve come in here, some things don’t look same” Linda said
”That’s because you don’t care” Stephen said
”Huh?? How?” Linda asked
”You see Linda, despite the fact that I’m your colleague, I am your Boss but you don’t acknowledge that” Stephen began
”Of course I do.. I respect you very well” Linda said
”No.. Linda, you respect me but you don’t respect my feelings” Stephen said
”But I have apologised on that which you refused to listen” Linda said
”Not about that Linda.. My feelings for you, I have been trying to draw you close to me but you have been draw far awaying from me Linda” Stephen said
”How do you mean?” Linda asked
”Just spend a little time with me Linda and I will drop this case. I know this case concerns you that’s why you are behaving strangely these days. Just accept me and I’ll drop it Linda.. Please” Stephen said
”Is that a Love Confession or a Love threat?” Linda asked
”Whatever you call it Linda. I Love you” Stephen said
”And this is why you called me here right?” Linda asked
”Exactly” Stephen said and walked close to Linda chair trying to touch her
”I know you feel same for me, please don’t hide it” Stephen said bringing down his head
”Get your filthy hands off me before I scream now!” Linda said angrily standing up from the chair to Stephen’s surprise..
”What do you take me for? You think I’m those cheap girls you can make your Sex mate or bed mate?” Linda barked at him
”You are lucky I’m in a happy mood today” Linda said and banged the door behind her leaving Stephen speechless..
”I’ll show you Linda” Stephen said and angrily sat on his seat…
