Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 18
I sat down on the bed which I shared with the boys and began thinking.
Who really killed victor? It must be one of the boys.
I gathered the boys outside, beside the seashore. The wind was blowing pretty hard.
“I called you here all because of Victor’s death. Who’s responsible for his death among you?” I asked.
Silence took over. No one said anything. They were all looking at each other’s face.
“Why the silence? Can’t you speak?” I yelled.
“Sir, maybe he stabbed himself” A boy said shakily and I glared at him.
“I don’t think so, someone must have done that to him. It’s better the person confess now or he’s gonna regret if I catch him myself” I growled.
I really want to know who killed the mighty victor. I really want to know him.
A blonde boy in his 20’s came forward and knelt down. Chris!! The timorous one among us.
“Chris?” Everyone chorused.
Yeah, everyone needs to be shocked. We aren’t expecting Chris to be the killer. I mean he’s the fearful, timid and shy one among us.
“Sir, am sorry. I didn’t mean to kill him. It was unintentional, a mistake. He wanted to kill me first but I had to shoot him before he kill me” He explained with trembling lips.
“Really? Why did he want to kill you? Did you offend him in any way?” I asked and he nodded.
“I heard him speaking with boss about killing everyone in the cell including you because he has been watching you all along and make you a suspect.
He planned to kill you that yesterday and I wanted to leave to come tell you about it but then he caught me and pointed a gun trying to kill me but I was fast enough to pull the trigger on him” He explain again.
I sighed and dismissed everyone except Chris.
“Chris, I can’t say what you did was good though. Did you hear him say he want to kill me?” I asked him.
“Yes, he said that with the boss, are you really spying on us?” The boy asked in a gentle voice.
The question took me off guard and I stopped to face him.
“Chris, I know this sound awful but I think you can keep this as a secret. Are you sure you can keep this as a secret?” I asked, facing him.
“Yes, if that involves killing boss am gonna do that. That bastard killed my twin sister for ritual” He growled.
“What?! He killed your twin sister? Don’t worry he’s gonna get arrested and pay for what he did okay?” I replied rubbing his soft hair.
Two days later…….
“Are you sure he will be coming soon? I don’t think he’s gonna come anytime soon” I said to Eric and sister Jane.
“Calm down Kate, I know he’s coming for sure. He just need to be ready to face what’s coming for him too” My sister answered.
“F--k! Am tired of waiting, he should just come for crying out loud” I yelled and they cell door opened.
“He’s here! You guys need to cooperate okay? Eric call the police and tell them to get ready and bring the phone too.
When it’s time, I will tell them when to attack okay? Now behave like you are… Starving or anything that makes you look like you are suffering. I gotta go.” Philip explains.
Eric did some things on his phone before giving it to Philip before he walk briskly out of the cell.
He’s here! Time to face the devil.
“Am gonna see that stupid father of mine? I hate the fact that he’s alive.” Jane spats.
“It okay, gonna win this” I assured.
The other prisoners were murmuring about them been afraid of Andrew and the fact that he’s here.
Who will he kill next?
Somehow I was ready to face him myself. He’s gonna pay for what he did to my parents. He’s gonna pay for the bad things that happened to me back then and even now.
Am ready for the so called devil.
The other door opened and the prisoners kept quiet Al of a sudden then I knew he was here.
I stood up and held the iron door, looking and waiting for him to come.
Finally, I sight him. He’s now an old man. Long time no see.
He got to ours and stopped with a smirk on his face.
“Hey gentle kids” He said as he grins.
“Hi bald headed man” Eric replied and stick his tongue out.
I laughed going to sit beside my sister and also glaring at him.
“Hey! Don’t talk to me that way! Don’t!” Uncle Andrew snarled.
Eric scoffed and face him. “What if I do? Ritualist!!” Eric fires back at him
“Shut up you fool! Did I ever kill any of your family?” He asked.
“No, but you killed fiancee’s parents and that hurts.” Eric said and my eyes widen.
Fiancee? Gosh Eric can be funny sometimes.
“Fiancee? You are engaged to Kate or Jane?” My uncle asked.
“No, am engaged to Josephine. What do you want from us? You wanted to kill us right? Go ahead” Eric answered.
“Well, I don’t have your f*ucking time. Philip get this three to the car. They are coming with me to Nigeria.” My uncle said and went out of the cell.
What?! He must be joking. We are going to Nigeria?
Phillip opens the cell door and breathe in and out heavily. “You guys need to cooperate, he’s suspecting me as the spy already. Don’t worry everything is under control” Philip said and took us out.
Wow so I can see the sea again? After many days. We moved to the van outside and entered. I saw my uncle talking to some boys.
He got to us giving us that stupid grin of his again.
“Get ready to join your ancestors babies” He said and asked the boy in front to drive us out of the place.
Of course he didn’t follow us. But Philip was with us.
Uncle Andrew's POV
I laughed at the good plan I had made and which is about to work. In 40 minutes the car is just gonna get burnt anytime soon.
Philip doesn’t know who he’s battling with. I already know he’s the spy just had to act normal around him.
Only the driver is innocent but his death doesn’t add anything to my life.
All I need is those four fools’ death.
“Tony, gather the bags we do pack the corpses and get ready. We are going somewhere” I ordered and he nodded.
Minutes of driving, Philip suddenly ask the driver to stop immediately he received a call from someone.
“Stop the car Williams!” I ordered but the driver turned deaf ears.
“Boss told me never to stop till reach the destination before 40minutes and we’ve used 30 minutes on the way.” The driver said.
I could see Philip’s eyes red. “Do you know we all are about to die?” He finally said and the car stopped immediately.
“What?!” We chorused.
“Phillip what are you saying?” I asked looking into his Charming eyes.
“Don’t worry honey, we aren’t going to die trust me” He answered.
I blushed when he called me honey. But that not it.. We are about to die.
Before I could speak, Philip said something.
“Come down now!” He yelled and we were about opening the door but it wasn’t opening.
Wait! What’s happening? Someone should get us out of here.
“This door isn’t opening Eric” Kate complained.
I have an idea! “The window! We can come out through the window.” I said.
I was the first to get out then Kate, next was Eric and the driver. But Philip was about to come out when the car bomb out.
“Nooooooo! Philip!!!!” I screamed and ran to the burnt car looking everywhere for him but I couldn’t.
He can’t just die like that. He really did everything to make us escape. He can’t just go like that.
My eyes caught something moving and raised my head up.
“Looking for someone?” He grins as he struggled out of the burnt car.
“Philip! Are you okay?” I asked feeling concerned.
“Of course! I can’t die most especially leaving my precious Jane alone in this world.” He said and held my cheek.
“I like you Jane” He added and pulled me into a kiss.
