LETTER TO MY GIRLFRIEND
(Clash of love)
A Story Written By Bright Daniel
Mr Josh wanted to take revenge after trying so hard to get his son out of the hands of the police but couldn’t succeed. Already Mento and Emma had been sent to prison after some series of judgment. Now, Mr Josh couldn’t take it. So he sent some armed men to the resident of Mr Williams a week after Nath’s wedding with Cynthia.
The day was dark. Joyce, who was in her room heard a gunshot at the gate, so she quickly rushed to the window to see what of happening. She adjusted her white night gown and rushed down stairs when she saw the gateman lying on the floor. She slowed down at the stairs seeing her parents lying on the floor too. Two men with heavy guns stood beside them. Their faces were covered with mask.
“Get back here!” one of them shouted at Joyce who wanted to run back. “I said come back here or I’ll cripple you!!” he aimed the gun at her before Joyce stood still and gradually went on the floor with her parents.
“Please, take me and leave my family” Mr Williams pleaded.
“Your family will die while you live in loneliness”
“Heehh!” Mrs Williams shouted.
“Hewoh!!” Mr Williams groaned.
“You, stand up” one of the men pointed at Joyce. “Come here”
Joyce staggered to them. Her breast and pant could be seen through the white transparent pijamas which she held tightly to cover up.
“Please, kill me and leave my daughter oh” Mrs Williams pleaded.
“Shut up, woman!”
“Please, don’t take me away” Joyce cried but one of the men dragged her out while the other shot Mr Williams to death.
“Lets go!” he shouted hurrying backward. They finally made it to the gate and drove off with Joyce.
“Somebody help me oh!!” Mrs Williams cried holding her lifeless husband. “Honey, please, wake up. Chim oh!!” she cried. Soon, the gateman entered.
“Hay, oga i don die?! Kai wahlai!”
Mrs Williams rushed to her phone. Her hands vibrated as she reasoned who to call. She died Mr Kenneth’s number but cut it after remembering he was out of the country..
Miracle groaned half asleep when her phone rang, then she sluggishly picked it.
“Hello, Miracle, Joyce has been kidnapped and my husband is dead oh” Mrs Williams sounded on the phone.
“Jesus! How? When?”
“Now oh” the line went off.
Miracle jumped from the bed and glanced at the time: 10:10pm. “God, i can’t go out now. Who should i call to help?” she murmured sliding her phone with a hand on her head moving to and fro in the room. She wore a bumshort and a loose singlet.
Nath laid side by side with his newly married wife, Cynthia when his phone rang. They were living in a new house bought for them by Mr Randy. The bedroom had every modern materials in it. Nath disengaged himself from Cynthia and put on the table lamp before picking the call.
“Hello” he said sluggishly half asleep.
“Nath, you need to help Joyce” Miracle sounded on the phone.
“Joyce? What happened to her?” Nath sat up fully awake. His voice woke Cynthia up. So she stared at his lips.
“She has been kidnapped and i think her father has been shot too”
“Oh God! Alright let me rush down there” Nath cut the call and stood up instantly wearing only a boxer.
“Where are you going to?” Cynthia asked from the bed.
“Joyce is in trouble, her family needs my help” Nath began to dress up.
“Joyce again? But is late already”
“I don’t care”
“What do you mean?”
“I have to help someone who is in need, okay!” Nath’s voice became loud making Cynthia to keep quiet staring at him until he was about to go. Nath gave her a peck and rushed towards the door.
“Please, be careful my love” Cynthia said.
“I will!” Nath’s voice echoed from a distant.
As Mrs Williams cried in the sittingroom alone with the gateman, Nath arrived with a group of policemen. Their syring and horn alerted the gateman to open the gate. Sooner did they come in with guns. Two men followed Nath side by side while the rest surrounded the house.
“They have killed my husband oh” Mrs Williams shouted when Nath came in. Nath gently held her and consoled her.
“Officer” he called. “I want this case to be investigated from the root, and i want you to find Joyce, the kidnapped daughter in the next 48 hours, understood!”
“Yes sir!” the policemen responded.
Nath carried Mr Williams to the hospital which after was reported dead.
That same night, Joyce was brought before Mr Josh in his sittingroom. She was still trying to cover her body crying. Mr Josh turned his back on them staring at the sky through an open window. He wore a white caftan which flung forward due to her big stomach. Just then, Kenzy came out.
“Sir, we are back” one of the men reported before Mr Josh turned.
“So, you are the one that..” Joyce wanted to say but was interrupted with a slap by Mr Josh.
“Do you think u and your father will get away with what you have caused me? Hehn! It’s pay back time. Take her away!” he commanded before they took Joyce out…
