“Check every inch of this place! They
wouldn’t have left by now!” He ordered and
all the hefty men stormed into the almost
deserted building, slamming doors and
Tobi noticed a bus at the back of the
building, and gestured quietly for two men to
follow him. He held a pistol in his hand,
although he had never held one before, talk
less of shooting at someone, but at that
moment, he knew exactly what he was
He crept to the back of the building, going
slowly to the bus. His eyes widened when
he saw Abena, but before he could do
anything, the bus started to move.
A sudden burst of adrenaline came through
his veins and he chased the bus, as fast as
he could, screaming in frustration because
he wasn’t fast enough. He stopped,
sweating profusely, and bent down, hands on
The men behind him started to shoot at the
bus. “What are you idiots doing?” He roared
at them, running back and grabbing one by
“She’s inside the bus you bloody idiot! Are
you trying to bring her back to me dead?”
He shouted and pushed the man forcefully,
causing the man to stumble back in fear.
“Search that building! There has to be a
clue, just one clue. Get me something, all of
They all scurried away into the building,
while Tobi walked back to his car. He
opened the door and sat beside Joseph, who
looked very uncomfortable with his cast in
“I lost her. I saw her, but they were already
“Well there has to be something in that
building that would tell us where they’re
going. Stop seating here sad, when you can
be inside there, tearing that place apart. I
know it’s not easy, you’re running out of
your mind right now. But you’re going to
have to be in your right mind, or you won’t
find her. Think like Tobi Ademi.”
Tobi nodded, knowing his friend was right.
He reached for his friends chair and reclined
the seat. “Thanks man.” Joseph smiled.
“Now go get something tangible and stop
being such a p---y.”
Tobi charged back to the building with
“Well, anything?” He barked at the men who
were tearing the place apart. They shuffled
through papers, documents and hacked into
“Sir. We found this man hiding at the back
of the building.”
They dragged a wiry looking man towards
Tobi. His eyes were wide with fear, and he
already had a busted lip. There was a tag
on his shirt that read, ‘Manager’.
Tobi gave a sinister smirk. There was not a
merciful bone in him anymore. He gestured
for them to strap him into a seat, while he
twirled his pistol on his finger.
He was ready to do whatever it would take.
“Why don’t you take a seat while you and I
have a chat about where you took my girl
Abena sobbed quietly at the back of the
bus, while trying to remove the chain that
gripped tightly to her ankle.
She had untangled it, and all that was left to
do, was to unhook it from her ankle. She
was bending down, much to her discomfort,
tugging at the chain gently, to prevent
anyone from hearing her. She was starving,
and it was eating her up inside. It made her
A hungry pregnant woman was not to be
They had been driving for hours, and finally
pulled up into a filling station. No one looked
at them suspiciously, the brand of the
modelling house was on the bus, and most
of the women were sleeping.0January 27, 2018 at 10:20 am #1170228
One man came out of the bus and walked
into the supermarket. The other one,
Ahmed, was buying fuel into the bus, and
into another keg, probably as a reserve.
The door to the bus wasn’t locked, and she
had finally removed the chain. Her ankle
was throbbing, her body ached, and her
bladder was full. But she didn’t bother about
all of that.
She crawled quietly in the middle of the
seats, thankful for her small stature, and
made her way to the door of the bus.
She felt a hand grab her and another woman
looked at her with pleading eyes.
“They’ll catch you.” She whispered.
“Then at least I tried.” Abena said and
removed her hand from the woman’s grip.
She had gone this far, nothing was stopping
She got to the door of the bus, and dragged
it open quietly. The driver had earphones in,
and was still buying fuel while nodding his
head to the music, and the other man was
nowhere to be found.
She crept out of the bus, resisting the urge
to stretch. She would do that later. She
looked around, and decided to hide in the
toilet until they left. Then she would find her
Her mind drifted to Tobi as she walked as
swiftly as she could with all the pain in her
The expression on his face while he chased
The fear was obvious, written in his eyes.
He was afraid of losing his baby.
And she didn’t want to lose her baby to a
bunch of greedy criminals either.
She walked into the supermarket, noticing
the man that followed them. He was
packing a lot of snacks; probably for the
women in the bus.
She walked in the middle of some shelves,
bending down so he wouldn’t see her, and
made her way to the toilet.
As she got to the door of the female toilet,
she let out a breath of relief and started to
open the door. Then she felt a presence
behind her. Before she could react, she felt
a cold metal on her back.
“Did you really think you’ll escape? Ehn? You
ehn, you’ve entered wahala. Now you’ll walk
out with me, with a broad smile on your
face. One wrong move, and you and that
unfortunate child of yours would never see
light again. Oya be going.”
Tobi drove into the filling station just in
time. After asking the manager, who was
now sitting in a filthy prison cell with a
broken leg and more than enough bruises,
he headed to the filling station he talked
Traffic was good, and in an hour, he was
already there. As he pulled up into the filling
station, he saw the bus parked in a corner.
But the next thing he saw made his blood
Abena walked out with a greasy looking
man, with a strained smile on her face.
He was very sure that there was a gun
pressed to her back. He walked out of the
car, as calm as he could, and walked
towards the car behind him.
“Police guys. Do your thing.” He simply said
and in a flash, they were running out of the
car, pointing their guns and shouting for
everyone to get down.
The man visibly stiffened behind Abena.
Tobi walked up to the man, gun in his hand.
“Are you okay?” He asked Abena softly. His
eyes softened for that second. She nodded,
her face flooded with relief, although she
was still afraid.
“Let her go.” Tobi snarled at the man.
Instead, he pointed a gun at Abena’s head,
which made her whimper in fear.
“Don’t even try it.” Tobi growled.
“Let me leave, then you get your wife.” The
man replied, although his voice was shaky.
“Wrong move bro.” Francis said from behind
him, a gun pointed to his head.
“Let the girl go, now.” Tobi barked and the
man released Abena immediately. “Throw
your gun on the floor and kick it away from
The man complied and Tobi reached for
Abena, pulling her into a tight hug.
“I thought I lost you.” He whispered.
Butterflies swarmed her stomach, but she
knew he was talking to the baby, and not
“Tobi. You’re killing the baby.” She scolded
playfully. He loosened his grip but still had
his arms wrapped around her. She relaxed
in his arms.
When next would she have the chance to be
in them again?
“I’m so glad you’re okay. God! I was so
scared.” He whispered into her hair.
“They were going to… my baby, Tobi.” She
“Its okay love. I’m here now.”
Her heart flipped at the word ‘love’. She
pushed the thoughts out of her mind. She
nodded and let him lead her towards the
car. Police men had swarmed the place
already, and the pregnant women were
taken into ambulances.
“We have to stop at the hospital first, to
make sure you’re okay.” He said and she
just nodded in reply.
“I had no idea you could handle a gun.” She
“I’ve watched enough American movies to
know how to be an agent.” She laughed and
he opened the car, helping her into the
“Besides, I’m Tobi Ademi. There’s nothing I
She rolled her eyes and averted her gaze,
looking out of the window.
She was falling fast, and for a second there,
she had a feeling he was falling too.
But the contract still lay in between them,
and there was no way Tobi Ademi would fall
for a girl like her.0January 27, 2018 at 10:21 am #1170230
“You do realise that I’m perfectly capable of
walking by myself, right?”
Tobi had insisted on carrying Abena bridal
style when they got back from the hospital,
and although she liked the closeness, very
much, she was obviously not going to show
They had gone to the hospital first, to drop

Apparently, he was a handful.
Then, after Abena had her check up, they
“Abena, you know the doctor said that your
body would be sore. So be a good girl and
shut up so I can set you up in the
bathroom.” He easily manoeuvre through the
door, up the stairs and into her room.
He dropped her gently on the bed, and went
into her bathroom. She heard water rushing
and after a while, he came out.
“So, I’ve set the bathtub for you. It should
relax your muscles. What would you like to
eat?” He asked, wiping his wet hands with a
“You are acting so nice, it’s weird.” She
“I’m always nice, you just didn’t know. Now
answer before I change my mind.”
She rolled her eyes and smiled. Well, it
would be good to make good use of the
“Fried rice please. Chicken included, and
“Okay then. Get into the bathtub before it
gets cold, or would you need help in there
too?” He wiggled his eyebrows at her and
she started laughing.
“No, thank you. I think I can manage.”
“Suit yourself.” He shrugged with a smile.
“Shout if you need anything.”
After he left, Abena peeled off her clothes
slowly. She remembered that they forgot to
get her phone back from the kidnappers.
Her gaze wandered to the iPhone that Tobi
gave her. She shrugged to herself; nothing
wrong with accepting his gift. At least, now,
she would be able to video call with Demi.
She missed that boy so much, it hurt. But
she knew they had to be apart. He had to
get better. She knew he was going to get
better, that was why she was pregnant for a
And now, she was getting more than she
“Tobi, what time is the interior decorator
coming tomorrow?” Abena asked as she
walked down the stairs, wearing her old
sweatpants and the shirt Tobi let her wear
the day they went shopping.
“I buy you a whole closet, yet you still wear
my shirt?” Tobi raised his eyebrow and gave
an amused smile.
“It’s comfortable. Don’t ask questions if you
find out that your shirts are missing.” She
shrugged and sat down on the stool, resting
on the kitchen island.
Tobi was flawlessly chopping the vegetables
and she could see that the rice was already
cooking. He was wearing an apron, and she
realised that the situation seemed domestic
“The interior decorator would not be coming
tomorrow. I moved your appointment to next
week.” He said, while getting the frying pan
from a cupboard.
“Because, you’ve had a rough day, so I
decided to stay home for this week to take
care of you.” Her skin warmed up at his
words. “You need to rest na, and we have
“Plans? What kind of plans?” She said, while
taking a carrot from the bowl. He slapped
her hand playfully and removed the bowl,
placing it far away from her.+2January 27, 2018 at 10:26 am #1170234
“That’s for later.” He said, referring to the
carrots. “And we have lunch at Joseph’s
place tomorrow, you’ve been specially
invited by Dera. He is leaving the hospital
tomorrow morning, and we are coming to
celebrate his ‘freedom’, from the apparently
evil doctor.” She burst into laughter.
“Joseph is a handful.” She smiled.
“And after that, I’m taking you out.”
“Where?” She asked curiously.
“The Quillox club.” He shrugged.
“The Quillox club? You need to be worth at
least millions of naira before you can even
enter the parking lot!” She pointed out.
He just smiled at her, then mixed the
chopped vegetables together. He poured it
into the frying oil and it made a sizzling
“Babe, I own the Quillox club.”
She just rolled her eyes, not looking
surprised at all.
“I’m not even surprised any more jare.
Before I know it now, you’ll tell me that you
own half of the Nigerian Government.” She
“I don’t own half of the Nigerian
Government Abena. Maybe just about one
eighth of it.” He shrugged.
“Well, you are the third richest man in
Nigeria.” She pointed out playfully.
“Almost the second. I would be in a month.”
He said, pouring the vegetables into the
rice, then stirring it.
“It smells so good.” She complimented.
He smirked at her. “Of course yes, it does.
It was made by me.”
They pulled up into the parking lot of
Joseph’s modest duplex, and noticed the
kids coming out of the house excitedly.
“Okay. They have three kids, the oldest is
James, he’s eight, then Jesse is five, and
the youngest is Juliana. She’s two. His kids
hate me by the way.” He said nonchalantly
and stepped out of the car.
“Why?” She asked, a smile tugging at her
lips. She brought out the cake she had
baked from the car, and balanced it expertly
on one hand.
“They’re annoying.” He grumbled and she
rolled her eyes.
The kids ran out at the sight of them,
screaming excitedly. The two boys got to
them first, while Juliana, the toddler,
squealed excitedly while running as fast as
her little legs could take her.
“Uncle Tobi!” They screamed, hugging him.
“I though you said they hate you?” Abena
lifted an eyebrow.
“They do. But I always give them money
when I come, so when I come, they take my
money and then go back to hating me.” He
She just laughed and looked down on the
children, who paid her no attention. Their
attention was on the wallet that Tobi had
fished out of his pocket.
“Okay. So James is the oldest. He gets two
thousand.” He said, bringing the notes out
of his wallet. James snatched it quickly, as
though he was afraid that Tobi would
change his mind.
“Jesse gets one-five.” He said giving the
notes to the second child. He took it from
him shyly and muttered a thank you before
following his brother inside the house.
“Oh! Juliana!” The toddler looked up at him
expectantly. “You get one thousand.”
She stared at the note inquisitively before
taking it from him and running back to her
“I actually thought you would give them like
ten thousand each.” Abena joked.
“Joseph gave me a two thousand naira limit.
I don’t even know why they expect money
anyway. They give it to their mom
immediately, and Joseph is almost as rich
as I am.” He said as they walked up to the
house.+3January 27, 2018 at 2:23 pm #1170364NeomaxMember
