The news of Eva D’s death spreads like a wild fire. Raven FM practically shut down. Calls and messages kept sprawling in. Fans inundated our station. People were furious and angered by her sudden demise. It was too difficult to believe. I felt the pain of her death like a reticent pang in my chest. I could not swallow the reality of her death despite she antagonized me all through my career and I had secretly wished for her doom but I never imagined she would die.
The police gathered that she was discovered by her friend in her bathroom, lying lifelessly in a bathtub and bleeding from her skull to her shoulders. Her face are swollen and her corpse is a skeleton of her, they added.

A ring on the door bell startled me, I practically peed in my panties, thinking it is Eva D’s ghost ringing the doorbell, obviously coming to haunt me before she finally transcend to the supernatural world.
“Someone is at the door. I will call you back.”
I hang up and shakily head for the door. I unbolt the locks and opened slowly. It is Tunji, in a black suit. He looked dapper that I want to dabble him in my hands. I embraced him and started to weep. He puts his arms around me and pressed my face to his chest.
I felt his lips on my head and I heaved my lips to his. We kissed like the world was about to end. My eyes were wide shut that I saw heaven clearly. When our lips parted. I saw that lustful glint in his eyes that he wants to tear apart…
