Bodyguard Episode 6
I took a bath after I sent my rescuer to another room to clean up. He was a totally messed up, but I respected his braveness. If it were not his good deed of coming to my rescue. I had no idea what those idiots were going to do to me.
Recalling the moment Ackim came in the room I was tied up, all my hopes where gone. All I knew that any moment I would die at the hands of those thugs. My hands had gone numb from being tied up. The many hours they kept me seemed like forever.
Then, I saw him..Ackim, he stood behind the guy who was almost going to hit me again so I shut up. His face was covered in a long and bushy moustache. However, I could see how honesty eyes were. He charged forward and slit my captor’s throat and I frooze. I had never seen a dead body so close to me. As Ackim walked behind to untie me I was so scared my voice wouldn’t come out right when I asked who he waa. later on as we ran in the dark night, my running abilities charged in and I ran like I was in a race on the running track. I was always a good runner but at that moment fear added to my speed. I had to ran like my life depended on it.
Though I was at first not comfortable being with a total stranger, there was something about his voice, he sounded to be an honesty and good man. I mean, who would risk his life for someone he didn’t know. He’s combat told me he was in some kind of army, but definately not Zambian army uniform. Everything about him showed he was Zambian even his accent.
I fall asleep on his shoulder covered in his Jacket. Under normal circumstances I wouldn’t lay besides a stranger and use a jacket with a strong scent of dirty. but I needed to keep warm before I could worry about the scent, it just felt safe being close to that stranger.
With each step I took walking with Ackim I realised he trully had a big heart, though he thought he was more of an animal because of What he was subjected to in Congo. I still thought he’s humanity was still intact.
When I finished taking a bath, I sat down in my office and called my father. I had to let him know I was alive. I needed to be a bit relaxed when talking to him no wonder I cleaned myself up first.
“Helo!” Dad answered at the third ring of his telephone. I had guesed well, that he was in his office that afternoon.
” yes dad it’s Paula” I answered back..
“Paula? My baby where are you? I have been so worried. I sent people to look for you all over. what happened to you?” he asked further without giving me a chance to respond.
“Dad calm down” I said softly.
” am fine now.. some people had me kidnapped but am safe. am at the lodge I thought it wise I stay here today not knowing what is really going on.”
I heard my dad sigh.
“I thank Jesus you are alive Paula I was loosing my mind and my enemies almost succeed in getting what they wanted from me. I think it’s a good idea you stay over there in a couple of days until we put in place the people who did this to you. so I will come over tomorrow. I don’t want to act fast. By coming there i might risk exposing you. Am suspecting someone from the inside my company or friends is working against me.” Dad explained.
“Sure dad, I will fill you in on the details of how i was rescued by a stranger later then”
” take care my baby” dad added before hanging up.
Whatever it is my father’s enemies had planned against him was serious and I intended to ask him now that I was alive and well.
I walked to Ackim’s room an hour later, stood by his door shocked. The perfect guy that stood before me didn’t look like the one I spent hours with. Ge was so hot, my heart skipped a bit. His bulged muscles and broad shoulders were like that of an American basket ball player. I tried to compose myself when I noticed he saw me drolling over him. I stammered as I told him he looked different, his well shaved face and head showed off his handsome face. His weak and soft eyes looking at me, made my throat move up and down swiftly. I was embarrassed and I quickly walked out leading the way to the eating table.
All the time i was marvelled by his speech, he smiled most of the times especially when he talked about his home. I had to control my drolling owing to the fact that, the man I was admiring was a stranger who would probably leave the following day never to return again.
I had not gotten involved in any serious relationship since I broke up with my boyfriend back in Australia. I had gotten myself a couple of men but non of then caught my attention to the extent of me wanting more from them than some one time hook ups.
After our dinner, Ackim patted my back and told me to rest well. For some reason he didn’t pay much attention to me as I did him, so I guesed i wasn’t his type of girl after all.
Early in the morning I woke up and took a quick shower, pulled a pair of brown skin jeans and a white sleeveless blouse then I put an orange throw on. Satisfied with my casual looks I let loose my hair, the curls from the previous day were still visible.
I heard a soft knock on my door.. “come in!” I called out.
I peeped from the bathroom door and i saw Ackim standing his hands in his pockets.
“good morning !” I called out.. “morning!” he answered in his gentle voice.
” did I disturb you?” He asked as he looked around my room.
“Um, no you have not” i chuckled coming out of the bathroom. I suggested we sit by the eating table. So we discuss the way forward.
” My father will join us soon” I looked up at him..
“Alright.” he smiled putting his hands in his blue jeans again. I smiled inwardly..
My designer instincts were perfect. just looking at him I had known the exact size of his clothes and shoes and the good part is that the the person I sent, bought the exact things I told him.
My father joined us and I explained about Ackim. He was so grateful for his actions and immediately wrote a cheque to compesate him, but Ackim turned down the cheque.
“Sorry sir, we just told you I have been away for some time. so I don’t even have my valid papers and an account. I would rather you give me cash if you don’t mind and then I will head my way.” he added.
“Sure I understand young man” my father told him.
” but it means you will have wait up until tomorrow so that my bank can issue the cash.”
“thank you again.” Dad told him.. “it’s unfortunate you want to leave otherwise I wanted to propose you stay here and work for me as my daughter’s bodyguard am afraid her life is still in danger and I don’t trust my own men. my instincts tell me to trust you more than them Ackim..” he continued.
“Am glad you regard me like that Sir” Ackim smiled at dad.
“but I have to go home and try locating my family, besides, am still indented to my unit as a commando. I need to report back and probably help rescue the other guys who remained behind…” he explained..
I knew it was hard to convince him to stay. I too felt safe around him but it wasnt fair of me to ask him sacrifice his life further more..
“it’s okey dad.” spoke up.
” let him go and sort his life and if he would decide otherwise he might as well come back and work for us” I said looking at Ackim. He smiled and nodded his head to agree with me.
Dad left us after we chatted and he filled me in on what was going on with his political issues and how the enemies wanted to get him to surrender a big sum of money for my release. He had almost given up the money but the bank delayed the process and luckily I should up before he handed them the cash.
Later that afternoon, I asked Ackim to drive me to town to get a few clothings for both of us. I couldnt risk going home to get my clothes and the clothes i had put in the room at the lodge were not enough to take me for more days.
I noticed Ackim look around as we headed to the shops. He walked a step back from me and I wondered what was going on. I was still wondering when Ackim shouted.. “get down.!.”
confused, I lay down and watched in fear as he stood up after a gun shot missed us. He pulled me back to the car and ran after some guy. Holding his gun
“don’t come out!” he told me before going. Trembling with i got my phone and dialled dad’s line.
“Dad !” I shouted.
“someone just attacked us in town, you have to send someone here. Ackim is gone after the shooter he might be in danger.” I told him crying.
” am coming Paula” dad’s panicking voice responded as i hang up.

Bodyguard Episode 7
The Bodyguard – Episode 7
By Tisa Phiri
I looked around as we reached the Boutique in town, my instincts strongly warned me someone was following us. I was not so much for the idea of going into town with her but I couldn’t get the idea out of her mind. she was determined to buy new clothes for both of us. “you cannot go to Ndola with only two pairs of trousers” she insisted.
Earlier her father had called me aside..
” please Ackim look out for my daughter am really worried but I can’t show it to her. I don’t want to stress her more than she already is ” Mr Benson pleaded..
“I only wish you had taken the offer to work for me, it’s pointless for you to go back in the army after many years. I would offer you a salary more than what the government would, besides you can go and see your parents and family after working here for a while” he added.
” after all you have already been away for some time.”
I looked at his emmerging grey hair and a small moustache, the man was in his middle 50s. He seemed to be a good person though tough at the same time. I understood why he was interested in politics his manner of speech explained the characteristics of a politician and business man.
I would confess he convinced me. I thought through what he had said though I didn’t want to give him my answers there and then. I decided to make him wait a bit. so I told him I would get back to him after thinking about his offer.
“I could use a job” I thought to myself. I really nothing to My name and I was almost certain my parents got the little benefits from the army the time we disappeared.
Mr Benson cautioned over letting Paula out of my sight during the time i was to give him my final response.
So here we were, as she told me her stories about her mother. I spotted a guy behind a black car packet on our left. Quickly before he could fire the gun, I doged down pushing Paula down as I shouted for her to get down.
I rushed her to the car park and locked the doors as I ran after the shooter my gun pointed out.
I ran after him as he went behind the shops the distance between us reduced as I ran forward. I admit he was a fast but I had some persistence. I saw his speed reduce as he headed to a corner joining the main road, quickly I placed my gun behind in my jeans when I noticed it was attracting a lot of attention. People stood by the road sides and watched us.
I stoped for a second and watched him, then I took the short cut when I noticed there was only one way ahead for him.
With a bang I hit him in his face with the back of my hand sending him to the ground instantly as he was caught unaware. Before he could stand and fight back.I gave him 4 more hard knocks and he fell down unconcious that’s the goodness of my training, when you have to beat someone using some skill would help you knock off a person without taking hours of hitting them. You just have to know the right places to hit and a person goes dark instantly.
I grabbed the small phone Mr Benson had given me to call him in case of emmergence and called him.
” I got the shooter Sir!”
“Am heading to the road now am certain Paula has called you already.”
“Yeah, she has” he’s shaky voice answered
” I sent guys over where she is and am on my way too.”
“Good” I sighed breathing heavily with the guy I was carrying on my shoulder taking part of my strenght.
“tell the guys to meet me by the main road side to the west of town then.” I added, pushing the phone in my pockets after hanging up.
As soon as the road appeared before me. I saw the ranger I left Paula in halt in front of me. one of the guys opened the trunk and I pushed the shooter inside and tied his hands from behind with a rope I saw placed in the trunk.
Paula came out panting
” are you alright?” She asked checking me.
” am fine” I said looking at her. she sighed in relief..
“How are you?” I too asked her.. “thanks to you, you saved my life again,” she said hugging me.
“sure thing, we have to go now” i smiled at her..
“yeah we do” she responded as she let go of me.
I noticed she had had this attachement to me like we knew each other for a long time but I was not for the idea of being attached to anyone especially a woman. For some reason all i felt was the need to keep her safe and alive. I saw her fear and more than ever at that moment what her father had told me made sense. she was in a lot danger than I had anticipated.
I decided that moment to work and be her body guard. The cut Paula’s Father had promised was great. It was an offer I would benefit more from.
I sat in the back seat with Paula as the driver, the man who drove her after I left her alone in the parking lot at the boutique drove on keeping his speed steady.
She relaxed and held my hand as we moved back to the lodge. I looked at her and she smilled. “thank you again” she said.
“it’s my job” I told her with with grinn..
“What?” She asked excited.
“your job? Do you mean you are staying? ”
“Yeah Paula I am, I have decided to take your father’s offer, so I guess am your bodyguard from now until this danger is over” I explained. she looked ahead but I could see she was so happy.
” wow thank heaven’s” she let a smile.
“. I know you will protect me Ackim ” she continued without turning to look at me.
“I hope I will,” I told her as the vehicle pulled in the gate of the lodge.
The guy who drove us opened the trunk and I lifted the guy to the back yard of the lodge. I asked for some kind of store room with some space and I was directed by Paula.
I dropped the shooter on the floor as he started moving coming to.
Quickly I tied him to a chair like they did to Paula, without untying his legs.
All i had to do was wait for further instructions from Mr Benson before I could take the next step, which I presumed would be an interrogation.
