made me single for years,… I refused to marry

another man,… Thank God death took her away

from him,…. I resurfaced and took what belongs

to me,….. But then i couldn’t bear a child,… The

doctors pronounced me infertile,.. I took up my

anger on your mother and you her children,………,

your daddy is paying for his sins,….. “ she said in

anger.

he rushed at her and gave her a thunderous slap,

then started hitting her,….. Pedro and Don rushed

into the sitting room and pulled him away from

her,……. They dragged him out of the compound

and locked the gate,…

“Fool,…. I swear you’ll regret ever hitting me,….

I’ll deal with you,…this is just a piece of iceberg

compared to what wil happen to you soon, . “she

shouted at Richard who had driven away in anger

”Hello,….. You have seen her house, that’s very

good,… You’re doing a good job,… Remember

dont leave any trace,… Just pick her around 3pm,

…Remember you’re to act like a taxi driver,…..

Tell her Richard is admitted in a hotel that he

sent you to pick her up….. “she instructed the

person on phone.

.” what if she tries communicating Richard, ,……

That would be risky,”, she thought to her self,…….

she thought of a good idea,.

“If she tries to communicate him, or refuses to

enter the car, , use the substance on her,.. Am i

clearly understood,?, ”

She cut the and let out a sign of relief, she felt

pains all over her face,…. She went to her room

to attend to the bruises on her face.

how that woman have been treating them badly,

not seeking after their happiness,…. …

called mother confessed to him, ,….. He was

bothered about his family’s safety and couldn’t

sleep at night……. .

hoodlums were lucky because they saw a car

waiting in front of Angela’s compound when they

arrived, she came out, entered the car and they

zoomed off,..they followed the car….

When they reached a lonely part,………. The driver

noticed a car trailing them,… He increased his car

speed,……. Angela was scared when she noticed

what was happening,…. They were so unlucky

because the hoodlums over took them and

blocked their way,….. They used their gun on the

driver’s head and he passed out,….. They used a

substance on Angela’s face, and she was just

staring at them,…. They pushed her into their car

and zoomed off,……

waiting for them,…… They soon arrived with

Angela,… …. Mother supreme supreme did some

incantations and was shocked at what she saw,

…..

“I cant do the sacrifice here,… We must take her

to superior mother for her to make the sacrifice,

…. This is above me,… . And we need to do it

before two days in order to appease the gods or

” What!!!!!!!!?, Superior mother?, that means

taking her to Lagos,… How will that be possible

this evening? ,… “mrs Johnson asked looking

disturbed.

”She must not spend a night in Asaba,….. She

must be taken to Lagos right away!!!! ,……. ”

”What about me?, will i also go to Lagos? “mrs

Johnson asked.

” You Must be in Lagos before dusk tomorrow,

He called Desmond and informed him of his

worst fear,….

“Are you sure that woman doesn’t have a hand in

this,…Angela have been kidnapped,… We still

haven’t heard from the taxi driver that went to

pick her,….. “Desmond asked.

” I cant report to the police, we need to wait for

24hours before reporting,….. I’m going crazy,…

What will i tell her mother, that poor woman just
