Olatunji sat in his office exhausted from the day’s work, he took a sip from his drink, looked and was surprised Mary hasn’t touched her drink. She had been silent since she got here, frustrated from all that is happening, someone out there is trying to kill her son and it scares her no one knew who the person is.
Olatunji: take it easy Mary! The police are doing everything they can to interrogate that criminal. I have two of my boys monitoring our son, Dolapo, they’re protecting him so you have to relax a little.
Mary: How could i possibly relax when my son’s life is in danger. I can’t take anything easy.
Olatunji: He’s my son too but I’m not down, I’m staying positive.
Mary: A son that you were never a part of his life.
Olatunji: and whose fault was that? You kept my son away from me
Mary: You already had a girl you were going to marry, and she already had a son for you.
Olatunji: But you still didn’t tell me
Mary: i believed you’d ask me to abort it.
Olatunji: What?? Never! I Wanted to have a child with you. I loved you so much.
Mary: Yea. You loved me.
Olatunji: (smiles ) Yes i loved you and i never stop loving you even till now. Mary i love you so much, i thought about you all those years that i couldn’t find you.
He stood up and moved towards her, pull her up from her chair. He held her hands as their faces were just inches apart. He looked straight into her eyes and whispered “ I love you, Mary”
Hey eyes met his gave, she was lost for words, she was weak at the knees and her legs felt rubbery. Memories came rushing back, his touch, his eyes….. Nothing else mattered, there’s no point hiding it anymore so she whispered back at him “ I love you more, Olatunji”
His eyes widened, his lips formed a smile, he held even tighter and she closed her eyes. She’s so beautiful he thought to himself. He pulled her closer and she responded holding him at the waist, he kissed her on the forehead, then between her eyes, down to her nose, he shuts his eyes ready to kiss her on the lips when his mobile phone rings out, sending shock waves between them both. Mary opened her eyes and pulled back, Olatunji gave a sigh, took his phone to who was calling, looked in excitement and said
Olatunji: It’s the police!
Mary: Pick it up now!
Her heart skips a beat, mouth opened. Olatunji had the phone on his ear, silently listening to whatever was being narrated to him. Few seconds later he said thanks and promised to get to the station as soon as he can and he dropped the phone.
Mary: What did they tell you? Did he say who is trying to kill my son?
Olatunji: Sighed…. I’m sorry Mary. They found him dead in his cell 30 minutes ago. He committed suicide and he never told them who hired him.
Mary held her head and fell on the couch, they are back to square one, she thought to herself and the tears came down.
Cop 2 drove into his compound in his official police car, he’s tired, being a police and a crime investigator wears him out daily. He remembered the suspect he had questioned, how sad was it that he had to commit suicide. Definitely some very powerful people are involved. He was about getting out of the car when the phone rings, unknown number, he picks
Cop 2: Hello!
Michael: Evening sir! This is Michael, Solo ‘s brother.
Cop 2: I’m sorry boy! Your brother is dead and he….
Michael: Yes i know! (Sniffing ) and no, he didn’t commit suicide, he was murdered.
Cop 2: what are you talking about?
Michael : I know who is behind all these. Solo told me where all the evidences are , i have them in my hands right now. He also told me i can trust you.
Cop 2: where are you right now?
Michael: I’ll give you the address, do you have a pen??
Cop 2: Yes i do!
He wrote it down, starts the car and backed out the gate.
