STORY: BEAUTIFUL BELINA (Episode 10)

Pric, where are u” I asked.
“I was just about to call, we are at Boruwa lane now but we can’t
find u”

“I can see ur head lamp so just come forward. The guys are after
me & they are few steps away from me. I would start running
towards u guys, so pls, open d door so that I can get in immediately u reach me” I said.

“ok”, she said & hung up.
I saw d vehicle coming ahead of me so I said a little prayer &came out of d bush. I started
running towards d car, waving at them so that they would recognize me. I noticed that d
footsteps I heard were not mine only so I looked back, lo & behold, they were at my heels. I ran with all my might & when I got to d car, it slowed down; d door was already open so I
jumped in &d car zoomed off almost running over one of d two.

Richard smiled from d bottom of his heart 4 d first time in a long while. He looked at Deji who looked confused with a comforting smile. He looked weak & was fighting sleep as
he continually opened his eyes.
Richard encouraged him to sleep & he later gave in. Richard stood there for more than 10mins just staring at him &
later went back to his office.

He got to his office & knelt down beside his table &started thanking God. He had been praying 4d past 2days & God had just answered
his prayers.
***

As I entered d car, I collapsed on d back seat for some minutes, my eyes closed without
uttering a word. I opened my eyes & saw Prisca staring at me. I later opened my mouth & said,
“Thanks a lot; I would probably be out of this country by dawn if u guys hadn’t come for me”

“What happened Lina? How did u get there?” Prisca asked.
“Calm down darling, let her rest,she has been through a lot”,
Tony said
I smiled faintly & simply said, “I would tell u all about it later but what I know is that they
were sent by Tunji & I would wager that my dad has a hand in
it too”

“What? How can a father do that? No, I don’t think he has a
hand in it”, Tony said.

I laughed slightly,
“Well, u don’t know my father”
Prisca placed her hand on my leg comfortingly as I lay on d chair & there was no other
discussion until we got to Prisca’s place. I was so weak & I wondered if I would be able to
stand not to mention walk with my sore feet, but I did. I walked
slowly to d gate & waited for Prisca who was busy talking with
Tony.
Prisca walked up to
me some minutes after & I thanked Tony again b4 he sped off.
I had a warm bath in her bathroom. She
also did d same thing & after I had worn a night gown which actually belongs to her, I climbed d bed. All d questions she tried to ask me fell on deaf ears as sleep overtook me.
***
Sparrow & spanner had been sitting on d road for more than 15mins & they finally decided to stand up. They just
could not believe that Belina had been right beside them & they
had not seen her. They headed back to their base thinking of d best way to present d case to Tolu &Tunji.

Tunji stirred in his sleep as d 6:00 alarm started ringing, he reached for his phone & turn it
off. He was usually a late sleeper & most times, he woke up 8
o’clock or 9 o’clock. He had set d alarm yesterday when he
was about to sleep because of d level of importance today
possed. His phone started ringing shortly after & he ignored it at first, when it rang
again, he picked up d phone to check who it was & it was his
father. He stared at d phone then finally pressed d green botton.
“Morning dad”, he said.

“Morning Tunji, how are u?

“I am sleepy”, Tunji said grumpily.

“Hmm, I need to see u son,we need to talk”
“I am busy dad,ou cant see me till next month. I am travelling out
today”, Tunji said.
“What? Where are u going?
“it is none of ur business dad,
I am not a kid anymore”
“what does that mean? I am beginning to suspect ur
movements, if u get into trouble, don’t come to me o”
“Don’t worry, I can take care of myself”, he said and dropped the
phone.

Tunji hissed & stood up from d bed. He realized how good a decision it was to move out of
his father’s mansion. He had extorted enough money to last him a long while & he had
been given one of his father’s companies to manage so money
was not d problem. He had appointed someone to run d company cos he didn’t want to waste time in d company when he could be out having fun. He hadn’t been free in his
father’s mansion; his mother never monitored what he did but whenever his father was not in one meeting or d other, he had to behave. He had various girl friends & whores but they all
looked expired to him
immediately he set his eyes on Belina.
He stood up & went to d bathroom to take a shower. He had booked a morning flight so
he showered, dressed &stepped out of his room. He got to d sitting room & noticed
that he did not put off d TV yesternight. He put it off &went off to pick his soon-to-be
bride.

TO BE CONTINUED TOMORROW MORNING
