Mr Opayemi Abiodun Olusegun (Alore)

John was troubled by what Nelson just told him, he went back to the sitting room and sat on the couch, could his father had been kidnapped by those wicked men? He asked himself, he went to the fridge to get a bottle of water, but this time he sipped it slowly instead of gulping it like a dragon that wants to put out It’s fire, countless thoughts occupied his mind, Joy sat beside him and held his hands, she had listened to their conversation, she felt sorry for John, she had lost both her parents few years ago in a car crash, but she had gotten over it, she wouldn’t want him to lose his father, she looked at his face and tried to console him, he looked into her eyes and his heart melted, he almost smiled, he then held her head and placed it on his chest, 10 minutes later, John looked at Joy any saw that she had slept off, he stood up and carried her to the room where Becky was, he placed her on the bed gently and kissed her, he went to the room where the guys were and he lied down on the spare bed, he was deep in thought until 1:00pm when nature came and closed his eyes.


Kemi woke up with a smile on her face,

her concubine had satisfied her more

than her husband ever did, she even

wondered maybe that was the reason

why John’s mother left, maybe he could

not satisfy her in bed and she left for

that reason, wise woman, Kemi thought

to herself, she had made the right

choice, but she herself won’t leave the


for her husband, when he comes back

with John, that is even if the useless boy was found alive, she would send an assassin to take care of them, her concubine was still sleeping, she didn’t blame him, he had worked like a bull, she stood up and wore her cloth, she carried her hand bag and left his house, she drove back to her husband’s house as she had to go to work that morning.


The corpers woke up early except John,

he had woken up around 8:30 am, he

stood up and walked towards the

bathroom, he brushed his teeth and had

his bath, he saw a new T-shirt and a

pair of jeans on the bed, he didn’t need

to ask Google before he knew it was for

him, he was happy he was not going to

wear the smelly palace guard clothes

again, he went out of the room and

walked towards the dining room, there

they were eating breakfast, he greeted

them before sitting down with them at

the dining table, the house help brought

his own breakfast of moin-moin and pap

and placed it before him, he ate silently

without saying a word, when they had

finished eating, Nelson announced to

them that a police pickup was waiting

outside to take four of them home as

John would go later because he had

some important issues to attend to,

John then interfered, he told them what

happened to his father, they all felt sorry

for him and hoped that his father was

not in the hands of the kidnappers,

Tomiwa and Becky were inside the police

pickup, Joy and TJ had refused to go,

Joy said she was going to Nelson’s place

with him until he was ready to go, he

was the only person she trusted, TJ was

not going to leave his friend in this state

of mind, he called his father using

Nelson’s phone, it was his father’s

assistant that picked the phone, his

father was out of the country, he told

the assistant to tell him that he would

be spending a few more days in Enugu,

the police pickup left on the

journey to Lagos carrying only Tomiwa

and Becky, John wished them safe



The hunter and his wife wore their best

clothes and began their journey to the

palace, they were going to meet their

new son-in-law.
