Must Read: Before She Dies… Part 72

?Written by AKOGWU JOSEPH CHINONSO…

She got to the sitting room and hurried to a stool at the side of a two-seater sofa, bent and picked The Nation’s Eyes, one of the national dailies she had bought, and started skimming through the pages. She turned to page 59, moved his eyes down and found what she was looking for. She ran a finger slowly from the name: Dennis, and shifted the finger rightwards to a phone number. Her heart was beating fast as she took out her phone and dialed the number. She placed the phone against her ear and waited for him to pick up. He didn’t pick and she became nervous and dialed him again. As she listened to the ringing of her phone, her throat constricted so tightly that she could hardly breathe. She shut her eyes and prayed he picked. After some seconds which seemed to her an eternity, a voice came from the other end,


“Who’s this?”


Anabel opened her eyes immediately and said quickly, “Benita.” She decided it was not yet time to give her true identity. That would be when Thelda must have been taken care of, “I picked this number from The Nation’s Eyes. Please am I speaking with Agent Dennis?”


Dennis said, “Yes and how can I help you?”


Anabel found her thoughts not coordinated but managed to pull herself together and said, “I have information which will help you in your investigation.”


He said, “I’m listening.”


She inhaled quickly and said, “The late president’s daughter is still alive but is in danger.”


“What do you mean? What’re you talking about?”




“I’ll tell you everything when you’ve saved her from the danger which she will be probably stepping into in few minutes. But at the moment, you’ve to know that Thelda Bruno, the late president’s wife is heavily connected with everything that has happened; starting from the stadium incident to the failed assassination plot of Williams’ daughter. Stella is still alive but will be in danger soon if something is not done immediately.”


“What the hell are you speaking about?” Dennis shouted, “Are you sure you have the right_”


“Just listen to me.” She broke in quickly, “As we speak, Stella is heading to the Inspector General’s apartment. I can’t tell, but he might act silly. I don’t know what Thelda has in mind but I suggest you move to the Inspector General’s apartment right now.” Sweat was pouring off her and she was now stammering every word, “There are many things you’ll get to find out but that’s after you’ve saved her life. If you seriously want to put a permanent end to this, then do as I just said.” She paused to wipe away her sweat and Dennis cashed in on her silence.
