…”Wait up Sis” Dave’s voice sounded aloud from the door as Linda almost entered the car

”What??” Linda asked

”Trying to seize the car keys??” Linda asked

”No.. On the contrary” Dave said with a little smile on his face

”I’ll take you there if you are sure of what you are doing” Dave said and Linda hugged him

”Thank you Bro.” Linda said and they drove out..

*

Spartacus sat in a very beautiful house that looked like a place someone never lived for ages. Everywhere was dusty and dirty, gate always locked, but the beauty of the house wasn’t gone yet. He brought out his bag of armour and began to couple up some thing in it.. Just then he heard a car horn on the gate and stood up immediately looking out through the window. He recognised the car but wasn’t happy to see it.

He armed himself and walked to the top veranda. He shot thrice at the gate, Linda and Dave ran out of the car immediately

”I told you this wasn’t a good idea sis” Dave cried

”Now we are going to die” Dave added and Linda boldly opened the small gate with her hands up

”I came alone” Linda said

”With my brother” She added looking around but didn’t see anyone

”Please don’t kill us, I only came to see you” Linda added with a loud voice

”And what does a Barrister has to do with a criminal” Spartacus asked from nowhere

”Nothing actually, if you can only come in sight” Linda replied

”You think I can fall for such child’s play” Spartacus asked

”With a recorder trying to nail me down.. Who brought you here??” Spartacus asked angrily and shot at the gate again

”My brother did.. I persuaded him to” Linda said

”I see, he has a good memory.. Turn him in” Spartacus said and Dave walked inside

”I warned her not to come here but she refused, please forgive Us, let’s go now and we won’t come back again please” Dave pleaded with a loud voice. Just then Spartacus jumped down from the building

”Why do you want to see me” He asked standing few steps away from them

”Just want to thank you for everything; My brother and My life. You saved Us” Linda said

”I didn’t request for a thank you, did I?” Spartacus asked

”No Sir, but you deserve it” Linda said

”Now leave” Spartacus said and Dave rushed out of the gate immediately but Linda stood

”Behind that mask, I see a kind, loving but hurt person” Linda said

”I said Leave” Spartacus said again

”Let me help you. You are not what I see now, you are not who you are now.. You are burnt in grief and Pain. You shouldn’t be doing this, you have a kind heart” Linda said

”You know nothing about me!” Spartacus barked

”I know that but I know that this mask is what makes you do what you are doing now, behind that mask is a good man” Linda said and Spartacus turned around

”I know… I know..;” Linda said walking closer to him

”Don’t come any closer..;” Spartacus warned but Linda tried her law magic

”I said leave!!!” Spartacus barked at her hastenly corking his gun in anger. On seeing this, Linda ran out in fear immediately

”Leave!!:” Spartacus still barked randomly shooting his gun at every angle. Dave ignited the engine immediately and with a great speed, drove off the arena.. Few seconds on shooting, Spartacus stopped and unmasked himself falling on his kneels. He breathed heavily and a bit soberly. Just then, he wore back his mask and stood up

”I am Spartacus..” He said and walked in, lay hold of some things in the house and walked out.. Walking few miles in the bush, he enetered a car parked there and drove into the highway..

”I warned you, but you didn’t listen” Dave said

”That man could have killed you” Dave said

”He won’t” Linda said

”Ehhhh!! I can see that something has come over you” Dave said

”This is a silly act I won’t let you take again” Dave said

”He has been killing better people than you and you say he won’t just strangle you to death” Dave said

”Thank your stars he let us go free” Dave added but Linda wasn’t listening nor replying him as the words of Spartacus rang in her head

”You don’t know anything about me!!!” Spartacus words rang in her head

”He felt sober and looks like someone in pain” Linda said

”What is the meaning of that” Dave asked

”Something is wrong with him” Linda said

”Let him take care of himself then” Dave said

”His past is hurting him” Linda added

”You seriously need a doctor” Dave said looking at her

”I don’t care what you think, or what you know or what you saw. You are not going there again!” Dave said and concentrated on the steering of the car…

**THE NEXT DAY -President’s Donatus Office**

”Good mprning Mr. President” Chief Williams greeted standing in front of President Donatus who was busy with some files on his table

”Who let you in here?” President Donatus asked raising up his head

”And since when have I been restricted from entering the President’s office?” Chief Williams asked and sat down without wny permission from the president. President Donatus couldn’t say anything looking a bit angry

”You can’t change a fate that is already written Sir, you have served your tenure, now is time for a change” Chief Williams said slowly and with a low voice

”What does that mean?” President Donatus asked and Chief Williamd stood up from the chair

”I just came to say Good Morning President” Chief Williams adjusted his agbada and walked out. President Donatus angrily looked at him as he walked out. He picked up his phone and called the Secreatary

”I need you in my office now!” He said with a loud harsh voice..

**CHIEF WILSON’S RESIDENCE**

Mrs. Williams went out for a tp class meeting in the national conference hall. Chief Williams sat on the couch still drained from the previous happening between him and Chief Williams. Cynthia walked out of her room wearing a tight ash trouser and a white shirt. Slowly she walked towards her father who didn’t recognise her presence

”Dad..” She called as she got closer to him

”Ooh.. My darling, how are you doing” Chief Wilson said covering up his thoughtful mind

”Dad why are you still disturbing yourself” Cynthia said not replying her father’s pleasantry

”Me.?? How?” Chief Wilson asked

”You are thinking” Cynthia said

”No.. I’m not” Chief Wilson said

”Yes you are Dad” Cynthia insisted

”What if your past is still hunting you” Cynthia added and Chief Wilson was shocked at the words and his mood tunred sober

”Tell me what is it Dad, a problem shared is a problem half solved Dad” Cynthia said with a soft voice and Chief Wilson looked at her as tears dropped from his eyes

”Stop crying Dad, you can talk to me” Cynthia said and Chief Wilson opened up

”I killed my best friend.. More like a brother to me” Chief Wilson said and Cynthia stood up in shock

”What??!! You did what??!!” Cynthia said surprised

”I’m sorry my dear, I was desperate to become the President, but even after that, I didn’t become the President and I began to regret my actions” Chief Wilson said

”And all this links up to what you did in the past” Cynthia said

”Dad, how could you??..” Cynthia said looking disappointed

”I’m sorry.. I just don’t know what came over me” Chief Wilson said and tears flowed down Cynthia’s eyes and she sat down again

”The past is gone Dad, face the present, fly back to the States and Chief Williams will see that you are not interested anymore and everything ends Dad.. It’s ‘lright” Cynthia said to her Dad and Chief Wilson embraced her..

PROF. MICHAEL’S RESIDENCE

”I need you to do something for me” Chief Williams said sitting down on Prof. Michael’s couch

”What is that Chief?” Spartacus asked

”Elimnate the President” Chief Williams said and Prof. Michael was surprised

”You never told me about this Chief…” Prof. Michael said

”Yes, because I just figured it our now” Chief Williams said

”That man is a barrier and needs to be taken down” Chief Williams said

”I see…” Prof. Michael said and sat back

”5 Million dollars” Spartacus said folding his arms

”For just one man?” Chief Williams said

”Just one man? Maybe you can kill him yourself” Spartacus said and turned around

”It’s alright.. I’ll give you 3 Million dollars” Chief Williams said

”I didn’t come here for a bargain.. Done deal” Spartacus said and left. Chief Williams smiled and sipped from his glass of wine

”Do you think killing that idiot is necessary?” Prof. Michael asked

”Yes it is my dear..;” Chief Williams said and smiled

”We wil know who is the real President here” Chief Williams said..

LINDA’S RESIDENCE

”Dave, why are you being this harsh” Linda asked following Dave who was walking down the stairs

”Because I made a promise to our parents not to let any harm on you Sis” Dave said

”I know but just this one favour” Linda said

”To see a criminal.. No way!” Dave said

”I love you Sis and that’s why?” Dave said looking into Linda’s eyes

”To hell with your Love..” Linda said and walked few steps away from him

”You aint taking me there.. Fine, I’ll find him myself” Linda said

”What!! You can’t do that Sis” Dave said holding her hand

”Watch me..” Linda said dragging out her hand and grabbing her car keys

”Have a nice day” She said and banged the door

”Hmmm..” Dave exhaled and shook his head…
