**LINDA’S RESIDENCE**

Harshly, Linda banged the door and walked in angrily into the house. Dave who was in the sitting room watching a tv show got shocked, turned off the television immediately and rushed up to Linda who already held her fore head in stress

”Take it easy Sis” Dave said holding her very close to himself and helping her sit down on the couch

”Thank you” Linda said with a faint voice

”What is it again.. I hope you haven’t gone to see that criminal again” Dave said and Linda looked at him

”It’s Stepehen” She said

”Stephen?? Who’s Stephen?” Dave asked

”My Colleague, the one you said came here the last time” Linda said and Dave starred at her

”What about him.;” He asked

”He is trying to play a game of cards on me..” Linda said

”How?” Dave asked still confused

”He kinda has the feeling that I know the assassin due to my behaviours few days back.. And now he is trying to take advantage of me as a way of him to keep quiet on the matter” Linda said and Dave sprouted in fury

”What??.. Is he stupis.. How dare he??” Dave said angrily

”He dares that and I’m gonna strangle him apart without breaking a sweat” Dave said and Linda tried calming him down

”He even reported me to the Director.. But I defended the whole thing” Linda said and Dave exhaled

”You know this is all your fault..” Dave said

”I told you but you wouldn’t listen” Dave added and Linda starred at him

”Now see where this is all leading.. Bet me he won’t stop here, he will go further” Dave said

”I know all that bro.. But I think I’ve started gainung answers to my questions” Linda said slightly deviating from the matter at hand

”What do you mean?” Dave asked her and she smiled depsite the anger

”The Assassin” Linda said

”Don’t tell me you went there again” Dave said standing up

”Well, I didn’t actually, but I did” Linda said and brought out a picture from her bag

”Don’t tell me you stole this from his house” Dave said

”Stole?? Nope.. I took it” Linda said and Dave starred at her

”He might find out.. You don’t know how precious this is to him.. He might kill you for it” Dave said

”Yes.. This made him the assassin he is now..” Linda said and Dave felt interested in the story

”How?” He asked her

”Daniel Maxwell is his real name” Linda said

”What???” Dave exclaimed

”Shhh.. Nobody should know or hear about this.. This is all I have for now” Linda said thinking she has cleared the mind of Dave

”But Sis, you still have to be careful” Dave said handing the picture over to her

”I will darling” Linda said and kissed him on his forehead

”I’ll be upstairs if you need me” She said and walked upstairs a bit happy

”What’s wrong with her..??” Dave asked himself

”She walked in angrily and now going upstairs happily just because of an Assassin??” Dave asked himself further..

”Hmm..” He exclaimed and turn back on the television..

SPARTACUS LAIR

Natasha woke up on the bed half naked that afternoon covered with a blanket. She hand cleared her eyes to wipe away the blur sight she had. She looked around and saw herself on the bed, she lifted up the blanket and saw she was half naked.. Just then, Spartacus walked in with a tray of tea

”I knew you would be awake by now” He said and dropped the tea by her side

”What time is it?” Natasha asked

”It’s afternoon” Spartacus said

”What?? Don’t tell me I slept that long” Natasha said

”Actually, you did.. I left you so as to get enough rest” Spartacus said and stood up from the bed

”Well it’s not my fault” Natasha said and Spartacus looked at her

”What do you mean?” He asked

”Getting that hot marathon from you could knock out a lady forever” Natasha said smiling but she didn’t know the motion of Spartacus face due to the mask he was wearing, so Spartacus nodded his head

”Don’t you think you should be keeping that mask away when we are together” Natasha said walking up to him

”It’s not necessary” Spartacus said and Natasha took it off by herself

”Yes it is” She said and kissed him.. She walked back to the be dropping the mask on the bed..

”Alright then..” Spartacus said, took the mask and tried leaving

”Thank you” Natasha said and Spartacus turned arouns looking at her..

”You are welcome” He said and left

”My future has just begun.. I can’t believe it was found with w notorious assassin” Natasha said and drank from the tea cup…

SAME DAY – INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE HALL, ABUJA

The Vice President, Senators, Ministers, Men and Women that matters in the Society all sat down round the long table… Their faces depicted UNHAPPY..

”Mr. Vice President, it’s been 3 weeks since the President died and you are not doing anything about it” Chief Muhammed said to Chief Wilson who sat almost at the top chair

”Yes Mr. Vice.. The President bold and clearly said that you and him are going to be the contesting candidates for this nex election but now he is gone which leaves you to give chance for your competitors.. You haven’t even started any rally Vice” Chief Obi supported but Chief Wilson said nothing, rather he starred at Chief Williams often

”Chief Wilson, we want to know why” Lady Peace concluded

”Well, the election is still in a Month and a week time right?” Chief Wilson asked

”Yes” They all echoed

”Well, for me, I have to stand against anyone..” Chief Wilson began

”Anybody who wants to compete should follow the due process and begin his or her campaign.. As for me, I have better things to do than sit here discussing about campaigns” Chief Wilson concluded and and walked out of the conference hall which left everybody surprised

”I no longer understand Chief Wilson, he is supposed to assume post as President till the election, now this country is left vulnerable” Lady Rita said and everybody murmured

”All I care about is the fact that he said, whoever wants to participate should follow the due process and do so” Chief Williams said and walked out leaving everybody speechless..

CHIEF WILLIAM’S RESIDENCE

”I can see he is trying to put up a contest between us both” Chief Williams said

”He knows I am the only one who can throw in a contest at him on the Presidential election” He added

”He has beaten the drum twice and I guess it’s time to dance to it” Chief Williams added looking at Prof. Michael

”I think we should hold our peace for now.. I am still waiting for information from my spy.. When he gets back to me, we then know what to do” Prof. Michael said to Chief Williams

”Your advice are always matured.. Let’s stick to that” Chief Williams said and sat down

”Kamsi…” He called out and a fair young girl walked out

”Get us more wine” He ordered and Kamsi left

”I can see, your new resting place” Prof. Michael said looking at Kamsi

”They are always out there in form of maids and innocent girls.. This one gives me frrely and willignly even when I don’t need it” Chief Williams said and Prof. Michael laughed out loud. Just then, Kamsi dropped in the wine and left

”What about Sartacus and Natasha.. Any news?” Chief Williams asked

”The last time I spoke with him, he said he lost range of her.. Since you have this new one, forget about Natasha” Prof. Michael said

”That girl is just something else” Chief Williams said and Prof. Michael starred at him

”Just don’t let your wife catch you” Prof. Michael said and They laughed

”She can’t.. Even if she does.. I married her and not the other way round” Chief Williams said and they continued laughing

Lyckily for her, only one car was begind her because it was a bit of a lonely road. The car behind her immediate dodged her and matched the brakes. Cynthia managed to hold the brakes breathing heavily.. Linda, the driver of the other car rushed out and ran towards Cynthia

”Hey.. Are you alright” She asked and Cynthia whined down the side glass

”Yes” Cynthia said holding her chest

”No, you are not.. You are absolutely not” Linda said but Cynthia insisted

”No.. No.. I can’t leave you here like this, let me help you home” Linda said

”I said I’m fine!” Cynthia said with a bit harsh voice and Linda gave up

”Alright then.. Just be careful.. Life isn’t double my dear. Whatever it is try to get over it.” Linda said and drove off in her car

”Gosh!” Cynthia exclaimed and ignited her car engine slowly driving back home..
