A new beginning
“Roy!!! ” Mrs Naomi asked in disbelief while the maid nodded gloomily.
Mrs Naomi angrily went to Sandra’s.
” are you dating Roy? ” she asked as she approached Sandra who was shocked of her question.
She stared at her mother, she knew before she will asked her such questions she must have been informed but who could have tell her. She thought to herself as she stared at her mother.
” yes! ” Sandra replied confidently damming the consequences.
” appraaa!!!!!!!!!! ” Mrs Naomi gave her daughter a resounding slap while she held her cheek in disbelief.
” you slap me ” Sandra asked holding her cheek.
” and I will do it again, just know your relationship with him is over ” Mrs Naomi said and left her daughter who was wailing.
She knew for sure that Roy will be relinquish from his duty, that is the least for her problem because she knew if lex should find out he will definitely harm Roy and the last the thing wish is seeing Roy get hurt all because of her.
” honey! How is work today ” Mrs Naomi asked and sit on the bed close to her husband.
” fine, what of Sandra I haven’t seen her “Mr Johnson asked.
” I think she is avoiding us “Mrs Naomi replied.
” and why is that ” Mr Johnson asked in surprised.
” I fine out that Roy is the guy she is dating, and I told her to end anything she is having with him “Mrs Naomi explained to her husband who was dumbfounded.
” Roy! ” Mr Johnson asked sounding perplexed.
Yeah the security guard” she answered.
” when Mr Jeffrey called me and told me lex is accusing my daughter of having an affair with someone, I never actually believed him I thought lex is just being paranoid, I never for once thought she could even have an affair with someone not to talk of having an affair with the security guard, so she preferred a security guard more than a business tycoon ” Mr Johnson asked angrily.
” calm down” Mrs Naomi said and patted him on his back.
” where is Roy ” Mr Johnson suddenly asked after minutes of silence.
” today is his off day, he will come around tomorrow ” she answered.
” how did you even find out “he queried his wife.
” the maid told me and Sandra did not even denied it ” she replied nonchalantly.
” let Roy come, he will regret ever walking to the lions den, and I will want you to collect Sandra in other for her but to inform Roy and tell Peter not to let her step out from the gate ” Mrs Johnson told his wife who nodded in agreement .
Sandra could be seen trying Roy number but it wasn’t going through, she wanted to inform him not to come to work tomorrow because she knew her mum must have informed her dad and she knew what her dad could do to him . She tried and tried but all to no avail.
Her mum suddenly walked In and collected her phone that was laid on the bed.
“why are you taking my phone ” she asked.
” you won’t be needing it” her mum replied evasively and left, why Sandra kept thinking of what she is up to.
Roy woke up to find Nina beside him, he was surprised to see her [email protected]
” what happened “Roy asked sounding perplexed and waking Nina from sleep.
” we got a little distracted” Nina answered.
” how did we get distracted cus i can’t remember a thing ” Roy replied vehemently.
” are you kidding me, you are the one that even persuade me in the act ” she answered while Roy stared at her in astonishment.
He suddenly stared at his phone which was lay besides him. He saw 13 missed call all from Sandra. He quickly took his clothes and wore it without even speaking to Nina, what he came to do had been drafted from his mind, his thoughts were clouded with Sandra.
“why is she calling me “he asked himself immediately he got home he tried her number but it was switched off, he tired for many times but still switch off, he had no other option then to wait for tomorrow when he will be going to work.
Roy got prepared, he went to work, he open the gate and walked in, he met 3 police men, “what are the doing here” he asked himself.
Suddenly he heard Mr Johnson scream “that’s him over there, that’s the bagger that tried to take advantage of my daughter.”
he didn’t need a soothsayer to tell him Mr Johnson was referring to him, he swiftly turned and behold Mr Johnson, Mrs Naomi and Sandra tears could be perceptibly seen on Sandra eyes she was begging her dad but Mr Johnson paid deaf ear to her pleads.
” young man you are under arrest” one of the police said to Roy.
He couldn’t help but thought of the crime he had committed, what will they be charging him for, having an affair with his boss daughter?.
They bundle him to their Van and zoomed off.
“Dad you don’t have to do that ” Sandra scream at her father.
” your father is doing the right thing, is for your own good “her mother chipped in while she gave her a lethal look.
She knew her mother was the one that planted the idea in her father head, she alone was capable thinking such barbaric act.
“your mother is right dear, is for your own good and Roy betrayed my trust, he must pay dearly for it, your wedding with lex is just two weeks from now, you should start thinking about the wedding not that rascal. “her said in a husky voice.
” see young lady your marriage with lex is not optional but a priority, unless you never want to see Roy again ” her dad threatened, While she stared at her dad in awe.
” what do you mean by that “Sandra asked in disbelief.
” I can make you not see Roy again if you chose to disobey me, if you truly love Roy as you claim, I will advised you marry lex is for your good ” her father answered and left
” think about what your dad said” her mum advised and patted her on her back.
Sandra was taking aback as she thought of what her dad said that she would not see Roy again if she refused to marry lex. “does he mean he will kill him or is there anyway to get rid of someone without murdering him? . She questioned herself. she was in quandary if she should marry lex or go for Roy damming her father’s threat.
Roy was pushed down to the cell he fall to the floor,.
“officer!!! ” he scream calling the police officer that pushed him to the floor.
” see them no dey shout for here ” someone said from behind, he swiftly turned and behold a group of guys that sat on the floor the face of the guys sent cold shiver down his spine.
” sorry “he apologized while they all bursted into laughter.
” who you dey tell sorry, common kneel down there make you beg capon “one of the guys spoke his voice was as thick as weed, he face was rough full of scars.
” They say make you kneel down you dey claim jagaban abi?” the guy asked, he stood up from were he sat and went to Roy he gave him a resounding slap but not just any slap but the slap of a cultists, Roy staggered back and subsequently collapsed on the floor.. While they all bursted into hysterical laughter.
“now beg the capon ” the guy spoke in a command tone.
Roy quickly knelt down and faced the guy who he assumed is the capon.
” bros abeg no vexe” Roy pleaded and faced the scaring looking guy. He saw someone that was fanning him..
“emeka ” the capon called..
” sir!!! ” the guy that was fanning the capon replied tiredly.
” give that guy the hand fan, you don try, we don get new member “the capon said while emeka heaved a sigh of relief.
” thank you ” emeka said and handed Roy the hand fan. He knew if he reject it will surely result to the beaten of his life, he had no choice than to collect it.
This is where love had landed him….
