Must Read: A New Creation… Episode 51

episode 51
**6.30pm**
Oj appeared from behind the tree, he took
off his sunshade and stared around the
place, searching for signs of Rough. There
was no one in sight, neither was there any
bird or lizard who dared to pass. The school
compound was totally empty and silent, even
the security officials who were supposed to
secure and maintain the place were always
hiding in their offices and quarters especially
when sounds of gunshots and violence were
heard around the vicinity.
Oj closed his eyes and took in a deep long
breath of the fresh air, he shivered
uncomfortably after, like a little boy who had
been severely beaten by his parents and
was still crying. The grief of his family’s
death was still in his heart and it would
remain as long as he lived. He looked
around once again, he hoped that Rough had
not called him to play a fast one on him.
She dared not, he had his boys surrounding
everywhere.
After ten minutes, he saw Rough walking
towards him from the other end, alone. He
straightened himself and waited for her
patiently.
‘Ojo,’ Rough called as she got to his front,
she dipped her hands into the pockets of
her trousers and stood with her legs apart.
‘Rough,’ he called back in the same manner,
twitching his lips as he stared into her eyes.
‘What took you so long?’
‘Hmm…’ Rough chuckled, ‘Slimmy had to go
back.’
‘Huh? He was coming with you before?’
‘Yes,’ Rough answered.
‘D–n! Then why did he go back?’
‘Because he saw your men gathered around,’
Rough replied, she took one hand out of her
pocket and took two steps closer to Oj.
‘The fool is a coward, why didn’t he come
and face me?’
‘Slimmy is not a coward, he didn’t want to
fight else he would have easily dropped all
of your men that were standing stupidly
around.’ Rough retorted in a serious tone. ‘Is
that how to lay ambush? Especially for
someone as trained as Slimmy? Gosh! Even
the girls that I trained knows how to
position themselves better.’
Oj felt stupid at that point, he stared around
wondering at what manner his boys who
were supposed to be hidden positioned
himself that Slimmy was able see them,
they must have really been standing stupidly
around.
‘We have more tactics man,’ Rough
continued speaking, she took the other hand
out of the pocket and began to walk around
Oj in circles. ‘We could have wiped you all
out if not for those other people you called
to join you.’ Rough paused at Oj’s front and
stood still, she stared into his face. ‘Who
were those people?’
Oj stared in silence for a while, he had
always known Rough to be rough and tough
but he had never seen her exhibit her
qualities to him like this. She was talking to
him like a man with confidence even though
she knew she was surrounded by his men.
His heart was troubled as he began to think
that it was possible that the Arch Angels
had another plan in mind.
‘Stop thinking too much man,’ Rough said as
if she could read his mind. Even though she
was still emotionally down because of
Gentle’s death and her sister’s kidnap, she
still had to keep a strong face and mind to
pull through. She was also determined to lay
her hands on Kong and melt to him the right
punishment for a betrayer. ‘Who were those
people?’ She repeated.
‘It’s none of your business, tell me the
reason why you are here.’ Oj barked,
disgusted by Rough’s confident demeanor.
He was really determined to wipe out the
Arch Angels but with the men he had and
lack of technical intelligence like the Arch
Angels, he began to wonder if it was
possible to get them. Well, except for the
help of the mercenaries brought by
Hercules.
‘Those people, do you even know them?’
Rough asked, cutting into his thoughts
again. She continued to walk in a circle
around him.
Truly Oj did not know who the mercenaries
were, he only knew that it was Hercules
who sought for their assistance. Even where
Hercules had gotten them from, he did not
know.
‘You don’t know,’ Rough continued. ‘Well
they might just be the ones playing around
with us,’ she said and stopped at his front
again. ‘Recently we found out that someone
broke into our store of weapons, we saw
some of those weapons with your invited
guys. Now think of it, how did our weapons
get into your friends’ hands? It means that
someone in our team must be with them.’
Oj remained in silence and continued to
ponder on Rough’s words. Could she be
right? Was the Arch Angels system also
disorganized like theirs was? If the Arch
Angels also had cases of stolen weapons,
then it meant that the stolen weapons case
wasn’t peculiar to them alone.
‘Here,’ Rough took out one of the White
Tigers’ handkerchief from the back pocket
of her trouser, she handed it over to Oj who
began to feel the texture of the piece of
clothing in his palms. ‘Isn’t that your
property?’ Rough asked.
Oj had no answer to the question, the
texture and size of the handkerchief was
exactly correct. It wasn’t something that
was customized by a stranger or anyone
who tried to guess their specifications of
the measurements of the material, it was
theirs; the White Tigers’ property.
‘It’s yours,’ Rough continued speaking, ‘your
silence confirms it. Well, it was found in my
house today, after my sisters were
kidnapped.’ Rough said and broke down in
tears. She couldn’t pretend to be strong
anymore. She couldn’t imagine what could
have happened to her sisters or where they
were at the moment. What would she tell
her parents and Hadijat’s? How would she
explain their abduction to them?
‘They were kidnapped truly?’ Oj finally spoke
after a long time of silence. He was
surprised at Rough’s outburst, he actually
thought that Slimmy was only lying when he
was told of the abduction.
‘Your handkerchiefs were found in my house
tied to their already packed luggage.’ Rough
wiped her tears and spoke. ‘Did you kidnap
them?’ She asked in a rhetorical way.
Oj widened his eyes, he took in a deep
breath and stepped forward, closer to
Rough. He placed a hand on her shoulder as
if to pacify her and tell her that he now
understood. He took out his phone and
dialed Small’s number.
‘Hello Small, are you still around?’
‘Yes,’ Small replied from the other end.
‘Who did we leave behind when we went to
mama’s place?’
‘Ermm… Hercules and some boys.’
‘Where is Hercules now?’
“I hope you have told your friend who killed
his brother” Malia asked as she rested on
her make up table with her right hand while
she had her left hand holding her phone to
ear, facing the large mirror fixed to the wall
behind the table.
“Yeah I did already and am sure they should
be on his trail right now” Roy replied on the
other end of the line.
“Sometimes I just wish he doesn’t get killed
but most times now I wish death upon him,
he is nothing but a beast” Malia started
crying again.
“How did you end up with a guy like that in
the first instance”
“He used to be the sweetest of them all, we
met a very long time ago, that was when we
were running our pre degree program”
“Hnmmm”
“We fell in love and it felt magical, he was
still sweet to me until all these recent
happenings, until he became a serial killer”
“Did he even tell you why he killed Gentle”
Roy asked again.
“Not really but he said something about
wanting to use the avenue to take over the
fraternity” Malia noticed something
reflecting in the mirror, she turned around
and there he was standing right in front of
her, he motioned for her to continue talking
but gradually Malia cut the call and dropped
her phone.
“Why did you cut the call my love” Said
Kong “You have not gotten to the sweet
part yet” Kong walked closer to where Malia
was standing.
“I am sorry Kolawole”
“Sorry, for what exactly. I am the one that is
sorry right now, I should have allowed you to
tell him the part where I killed you” He
turned her around back to the position she
was before and made her bent slightly like
he wanted to hit her from the back but at
that moment his phone started ringing.
“Yeah” he said into the phone.
“Baba wahala dey oo, e be like say breeze
don blow oo” the caller sounded rather
scared.
“Will you calm down and talk to me” Kong
barked.
“Oj just had a meeting with Rough of the
arch angels and immediately after the
meeting he has been searching round for
Hercules” the caller explained.
“Sh.t menh, has anyone of you tried calling
Hercules”
“No baba, his first number is not going
through and all of us don’t have the other
one”
“I do have it, I will alert him don’t worry. You
all should act well ooh, don’t let them find
out anything” Kong ordered and dropped the
call, he stared at Malia through the mirror
and drew her hair closer, placing his arms
round his neck “Normally, as a traitor I am
supposed to give you a slow death and to
also kill all your family members along with
you but my love I will never hurt your family
because of the love I have for you”
Kong still had his arms around his neck as
he began kissing all over her face, Malia
began moaning but suddenly Kong hardened
his grip on her neck, he choked her and she
tried to fight for her life but Kong was more
stronger, in a matter of minutes he was
done strangling her, Malia laid on the ground
lifelessly.
“And I didn’t give you a slow death because
I loved you” Kong said to himself as he
walked away from the dead body. He
brought out his phone and was about to dial
Hercules but then decided against it.
“Why should I call Hercules to stop him from
walking into death if I am still going to kill
him at the end” he dialled another number
instead and had his phone pressed to his
ear with his shoulder as he packed some of
his clothes into his box.
“Hello” He said “Take those girls to that
place I told you about and make it discreet.
_________
Hercules was walking down the road that
leads to Oj’s place when he saw some guys
from afar following him, he saw them clearly
thanks to the street lights flooding the area,
immediately he increased his walking speed
and the guys did the same thing, he started
running while the guys chased him down, he
saw the green clothes on them and was
sure it was the arch angels, he ran so fast,
faster than he ever imagined he could run,
as he got closer to Oj’s house and saw a
car parked outside with some guys standing
around the car, he immediately recognised
the guys as his co members.
“Incoming Incoming” he shouted and the
guys standing by the car all raised their
weapons at alert ready to fire at the
intruders, the intruders slowed down as they
saw guns been aimed at them but they
didn’t stop. They kept on walking towards
them, Hercules was still panting heavily.
“What are you guys waiting for” Hercules
shouted “Fire them, kill them all”
All of them corked their guns, hands on
trigger ready to fire as the intruders were
now some feet away. The door of the tinted
glass car opened and Small dropped from
the car leaving the door to the car opened,
he also corked his gun as he dropped and
aimed it at the incoming intruders, Few
seconds later Oj too dropped with 9mm in
both his hands, aiming at the intruders too.
“Get me a weapon” Hercules ordered one of
the boys standing around but before the boy
could respond, someone else stepped out of
the car, Hercules wondered who it was, at
what he first saw was the person’s shoes,
before he could say jack, everyone pointed
their guns at him and then he saw the face
of the person that just dropped from the
car.
“Rough” Hercules muttered.
Rofiat held onto the door as another person
alighted from her car, his legs first and then
he came out completely and Hercules saw
his face.
