TWINS – Episode 3

Jake looked around the well-furnished house belonging to his brother, he smiled to himself liking the idea that was packed in the back of his head.
“Good job Mike, good job” he whispered to himself throwing himself on the king size bed enjoying the fresh scent of the sheets. He looked around the room, a spacious cubed room with a big wardrobe inbuilt on his right. He turned to look at the wide windows the cool breeze from outside touching his face. The windows were widely opened and a thin net was a bridge between the inside and the outside as the large plain curtains fall down to the floor from the round gold rods were they hang.
His eyes landed on a big wedding photo, he smiled almost visualizing himself seating in his brother`s palace. “Beautiful woman brother” he chuckled walking towards the frame and taking down the phot happy seeing his own image in the picture.
“I could have been the only one with this face brother, you had to choose to be born after me. “He made a face drawing his fingers across his brother’s face.
He moved away after placing back the frame and stood in front of the mirror, taking a long stare at his image. He notice his moustache was growing and he looked a bit rough as compared to the pic of his brother. Opening the closet, he took out a bottle of shaving cream and walked to the next day leading to a bathroom.
He took his time making himself clean, brushing his teeth with the first toothbrush he could find and shaving his face, after which he went to take a long cold bubble bath.
Jake felt so fresh and relaxed as he went to lay down the bed, allowing himself to take a break from the years he was meant to serve in prison. He spent most of his 10 years in trying to plan how he was to live when he finally escaped.
From the inside, he had grown so much bitter and stronger. He did a lot of work outs and joined an inside gang making deals with other inmates. He had befriended a female prison wader who he deceived to have fallen in love with. He gave her some money to have his brother watched for years, what he did and almost everything about her. With people outside to help him, Jake had succeeded in his plan and managed to stage a prison break, killing the wardress he used to cover his tracks. The police were out to hunt him down but he had everything played out so well.
“Am not going back to prison” Jake whispered extending his legs taking most of the space still clad in his bath suit.
“I got to live too “he grinned to himself closing his eyes to sleep.
Mike and Isabel, had just gotten to Kitwe and to their home. Mike as always, moved to the other side opening the door for his dear wife. He lifted her instead and led her inside as she giggled happily.
“You so heavy! My God! “He exclaimed putting her down as he reached the couch.
“Sir, madam welcome back!” the house worker cheerfully greeted them both
“hello how are you Mwanida!” mike looked at her letting his wife`s hand go.
“Hey Mwani!” Isa followed suit.
“Can I offer you anything boss?” she asked with a wide stupid smile that read trouble but the two love birds could not tell it.
“I need very cold water my dear and a fruit” Isa smiled at her.
“Am okey just take care of my woman for me Mwanida. Give her whatever she asks for and make sure she`s well feed. I want a healthy baby” mike responded his eyes on his wife who was laying down the couch.
“Babe, am only pregnant not sick, besides I want to do something around the house as soon as I feel rested from this trip. Don’t stress yourself about it” Isa held her husband.
“You are still here” she asked Mwanida when she noticed she kept grinning at them instead of going to get what she had asked for.
“Sorry ma” Mwanida bowed a little walking away.
“Come on take me to take a bath before you leave” she caressed her man when he sat to tell her he was leaving.
“Besides, you owe me a nice time after yesterday” she added making a sad face.
“But love I have to…”
“ shshshshsh ! Take me to our room and take care of me” she spoke pointing at herself down the thighs.
“Ohm please come on not now”
“Yes now Mike!” she ordered getting upset.
“Well, let’s get it down then need to leave as soon as possible” Mike lifted her up.
He removed her dress gently exposing her underwear. Isa smiled at him seductively as he took her to take a bath.
“Babe this place is wet, it’s like someone was bathing from here. Its awkward cause we have been out for a couple of days” Isa bemoaned touching the bath tub.
‘’ no, it’s probably the maid who was cleaning the place love forget it” Mike spoke quickly trying to cover his knowing face.
“Mike, the soap is wet too” she held the bar to his face.
“You tell me she was using soap to clean the tub?” she asked worried.
“Come on my love, soap is on the holder, you expect it to be wet after someone opened the water to clean this thing?” he shrugged dismissing her thoughts.
“Come here my love “he changed the subject pulling her into the tab after getting out of his own clothes.
She looked at his erect man and smiled at how sexy he was. She had not bought the idea of Mwanida cleaning the tab though, she made a mental note to confront her and warn her to stop using her bathroom to clean herself.
Pushing the thoughts away, she let her husband kiss her and make love to her. Even though she could not appreciate the outcome of the love making, she was glad he made an effort to please her which he mostly did. He was so much good at love making, but Isa knew he tried his best to make her feel good.
What more could she ask for? She had a man who loved and cared for her, he gave her the life of a princess with everything she needed materially. Isa smiled as she remained in the water letting Mike get out and dress up before leaving.
Unknown to her that was the last time of her good life. What lay ahead of her was something she had never anticipated.
Mike grabbed the car keys and rushed out to his car, his phone kept beeping but he ignored it knowing who was calling. He sighed deeply upon getting to the place he was to meet his twin brother. He was relieved to have not found him back at his house, otherwise he could have had no way of explaining things to his wife.
Looking around some abandoned building, he shook his head before turning of the ignition and stepping out the car. He searched around again but there was no sign of his brother. Hating the game Jake was playing, he took some steps around looking inside the building.
“Wow! Looking good brother and I love this posh car” came the voice of his brother from behind startling him.
“Jake,” he sighed turning around to face him.
“Hey brother!” Jake shouted smiling widely.
“It’s been what? 10 years?” he asked nodding his head.
“Oh no I forgot you paid me some courtesy visits years ago when I was first put in that filthy place” Jake chuckled his hands in the pockets. Mike looked at him clad in his own clothes from head to toe.
“Hey, hope you don’t mind I got into your clothes, goodness of being twins right?” Jake mocked seeing his brother eyeing him.
“I stopped visiting you because every time I did you blamed me for you misfortune Jake, I have always looked out for you but how do you pay me back? Trouble after the other” mike frowned sadly.
“Well you looted me out to the cops Mike, all I needed was a place to hide and you couldn’t do that for me. We are brother1s for crying out loud, how could you? I only wanted a few days to hide at your house and what, you threw me out to the dark like I was some criminal” Jake burst out.
“You were a criminal Jake, I never wanted anything bad to happen to you and I knew hiding you would not only jeopardize my life but yours too. The person you killed belonged to a gang Jake and had you escaped prison at that time you could have been killed too.” Mike rises his voice trying to reason with his brother.
“Oh oh oh… whoops! So now you claiming to have saved my life by throwing me in jail huh?” Jake snarled angrily.
“You know what enough of this talking nonsense, I took the opportunity in jail to plan my life today. I had to be patient and now it’s time to gain from all that I have lost in the past. “Jake smiled
“What do you want? Is it money?” Mike humbly asked seeing he would never get his brother to reason.
“Well what do I want? That’s the right question Mike my dear brother, that’s the right question” Jake smiled closing in to Mike.
