Hearing the knock on my door caused me to pause and as a result of that,My whole nerves got tensed up and my entire being was pinpointed on unravelling the identity of the person behind the door………With shaky hands,i hid the phone under the bed and cracked open the door to see cigaro peering at me intently and also sophia walking along the corridor towards my room……. ”whats wrong in there??”, he barked,looking at me suspiciously with his glock pistol in hand……..
I smiled at him and told him nothing was wrong that I had knocked over the bottle…..He knew of my short temper but what was confounding him was what could be the cause this time…….”[/B] your wahala don dey start again abi??? ”he said,laughing at me as he stuck his pistol back into the safety of his belt…..” am going out for a drink ”,he continued still smiling,” want to come” ………”comot joor”, i retorted as he headed toward the living room laughing loudly as he went………..Sophia had ignored us the whole while and had made her way into the room after hearing my little tale…..She was convinced it was a lie ,i knew cos I could see it in her eyes……..she cleared the pieces of broken bottle in the room and by the time she returned,we could both hear cigaro’s car leaving the compound………….sophia was wearing a very frightening frown on her face,it was obvious she had something else on her mind… ”I know you took the phone from my wardrobe” she said,finally breaking the spell of silence that was making the room rather uncomfortable……. ”you didn’t give me much of a choice and besides I needed it”,”for what??”, who the hell are you really by the way??,she asked stopping any other sentences dead on my lips with her barrage of questions……..
I looked into her eyes and all I could see is a deprived woman trying to hold on to the last shreds of dignity in her life……. ”ok,look!!!!! am more dangerous than you guys think but the most important thing is that am not with law enforcement people”, i said giving her a cold stare. ”if you were,i would have shot you dead” she said as tears started rolling down her face… ”I don’t know why but my legs feel weak everytime I see you and I lose my morale”, Those words struck my heart like a cold pike,her tears was too much for me to handle…
Walking over to where she stood,i scuttled her up in my arms and kissed her full on the lips,she hungrily searched for my tongue with hers as our breathing grew frantic.We disengaged,took one hard look at each other and said “I love you” in coincidence…We laughed over it as I scooped her over to the bed and made love to her as a lover would do..
I could sense the happiness and love written all over her…Resting her head on my chest she said, ”A reliable source told me all I needed to know about you,your secrets safe with me,just don’t break my heart”….. reliable source??,who the hell was that???,questions that needed answers were racing through my head right now….she noticed the spike in the rate of my heartbeat and laughed, ”whatever you are and wherever your running from doesn’t matter to me.
All that matters is that your making me a very happy girl and as long as it stays that way,my lips will be sealed”, At least I could do what she was asking so with that,i heaved a sigh of relief….
