A deep state of confusion was what David that moment, he need to help that young man before his conscience would kill him, but that was really rare David in his life of an assassin had never for once be pushed to passion he doesn’t even know what made him zealous to help Cole,
He remembered he had not checked the other doors so he went back to see everything for himself, he opened the third door there was no one, he opened the fourth one everywhere empty, he let out a sigh as he made to the fifth door with hope of it being empty like others, but oh no he was wrong, the room had a young man tied on a chair in a sitting position the same way Cole was tied, the only difference was that this guy looks more healthier than Cole
“Hey” he called out tapping him on the shoulder making him jerk awake,
“What!!!!” he exclaimed as he found the man to be Richard
“David!!!!…..is this you or i’m i dreaming?!!!” Richard exclaimed in shock
“How did you get here?” David asked anxiously…….
“I don’t know what this people needs from me, they just kidnapped me here for nothing….but how did you know about this place?”Richard asked
“Like my story which i told you that i worked for my uncle thats it, i don’t know how he got to know my location but he just bailed me out of the prison and forced me into what i was doing for him past ago” David explained
“Woow, you know what please just release me now, i will find my way out of here, all i need is being freed” Richard said staring at David,
“Setting you free now is not a problem because both Gabriel and Angela had went out on a date but the problem is that i need to also save another guy in the other room, he is very weak and fatigue, he can’t run fast so i don’t know what to do….i have to free the both of you now at this given opportunity because i don’t think i would ever get it again, can you escape with him faster before you disappearance would be noticed?” David asked in a low tone
“That guy is like a brother “What is his name??” Richard asked”Hmm, he said his name is Cole” David answered..”What???….did you just said Cole” Richard exclaimed in shock and amazement”Any problem???….did you know him??”David asked staring at Richard who had a surprised expression on his face, “That young man Cole is just like a brother to me, i can’t believe this is happening….where did you said you saw him??” Richard asked with a broad smile”The second room before this one” David answered cutting off the rope used to tie him,
Immediately the rope got off his body he rushed out to the room eagerly, all that was in his mind that moment was seeing Cole who hadn’t got to see long time ago
He dashed into the room with the door making a loud sound due to the rate at which he banged it open jerking Cole up
“Oh no…what is this?” he muttered as he untied the knot on the rope,
“How are you?” he asked as he held Cole who was extremely weak on his laps,
“Please…save me from this….wicked men” Cole muttered weakily
“I promise you of your safety…how do you feel now” Richard asked “I feel pain, my stomach region all are in deep pain…i don’t think i can walk the pain is just so severe, i feel life going out of me, haaa” Cole lamented with hot tears driping down his cheek”Lets take him to the hospital, go get the car ready” Richard scre-m grabbing Cole up his shoulder,Cole let out a loud scre-m as Richard carried him the pain in his stomach became unbearable to him, his eyes began shutting itself, he tried hard keeping it opened but it just couldnt,
As they drove off to the hospital Cole’s sight became blurred, before he could scrub his eyes everything blacked out,
Richard let out a loud scre-m as he saw his both eyes shut, he quickly checked his heartbeat and breath out in relief as he saw he was still breathing
“Increase your speed!!!” Richard shouted at David who was riding the car,
Richard made the sign of the cross and started saying some little prayer he could remember, anxiety clouded up his mind as he stared at the motionless body of Cole, if it hadn’t been that his heart was still in motion he could have been termed a dead man,After what seem like a wh0le day, they got to the nearest hospital, David and Richard carefully took him up the stairs, Richard called out the nurse loudily as they reached the topmost of the steps, four nurse rushed out with a stretcher, they layed Cole on it and propelled him into the emergency ward, while Richard and David sat outside waiting patiently”Oh lord, please i’m sorry for my sins please don’t punish me by taking the life of that boy, God i’ve suffered enough please, i had lost my parent on the same day…. lost my fiancee… lost the love of my life…. lost my business…. God please keep this guy for me…he is my only source of happiness, God plssss oo” Richard lamented with flood of tears dropping profusely down his cheek,
David and some other people gazed at Richard with a pity expression, some ladies among them couldn’t withstand their own tears from falling as they watched him shed tears like a child,
“Why are you sheding such a tears for that young man…. do you guys relate in any way???” David asked with a serious tone, the kind of tears and words of pain richard was scre-ming was making him so annoyed,
He could not imagine what was making Richard cry this way, he was sure even if his father or mother had died he would not do such a thing Richard was doing that moment,,,,
“If that boy dies…. i think i would have to commit sucide, that boy is my love one. I value him more any other person, i want him alive at any cost” Richard said smiling widely
“I don’t think i can wait any longer, i have to go now, i have to face my circ-mstances, my fate, whenever he gets well find a way and travel out of this state, let me be going i even have a mission to carry out this night” David said stretching his folded long sleeved shirt,
“David!!!” Richard called
“Yes…ehen” he answered facing Richard who was cleaning his eyes and running nose with his handkerchief
” Please act wisely, i can’t afford to lose you too, i know how wicked your uncle is, don’t fall on his trap, i really love you, many people may see you as a wicked and heartless human but i see the compassion and love in your heart, you saved me and Cole from the hand of your uncle and his colleague, i pray that God would also save you out from them in the right and appropriate time, i would be remembering you everyday of my life as the hero that made my life free once again thank you I wish i can make you follow me and Cole in our escaping, but it would make the situation more harder, ehen lest i forget which mission are you talking about recently?” Richard asked as he rest his back on the wall with his hand akimbo
“It was a mission sent to me by my uncle, it is not a big deal to pull, just the kidnap of two people which i don’t know but i’m sure it is for trafficking, one chief James and a lady Sandra” David explained while Richard widened his eyes in shock at the mention of Sandra’s name, he doesn’t need any divination to know that the Sandra he was talking about is no other person than his own Sandra
“Do you know where they both lives?” Richard asked
“Yes, i had did the research and had found out their present location, i would carry out the mission at around 12 midnight” David explained
“You would not carry out one of the mission” Richard said with a sweet smile
“What do you mean??” David asked with a surprise look
“The lady you are going to kidnap is my girlfriend and my future wife so you see why you would not kidnap her, tell of her location, i’m going there after Cole gets well, all glory be to God!!” Richard exclaimed in a jovial voice,
that the Sandra he was talking about is no other person than his own Sandra
“Do you know where they both lives?” Richard asked
“Yes, i had did the research and had found out their present location, i would carry out the mission at around 12 midnight” David explained “You would not carry out one of the mission” Richard said with a sweet smile
“What do you mean??” David asked with a surprise look”The lady you are going to kidnap is my girlfriend and my future wife so you see why you would not kidnap her, tell of her location, i’m going there after Cole gets well, all glory be to God!!” Richard exclaimed in a jovial voice,
” Wooow, so you know her, hmmm… you are very lucky, let me write down her address for you, thank God i hasn’t told anyone of her house, greet her for me oo” David said then wrote down the address on a paper he got from the dustbin,
“Thank you very much… i wish i had my phone i could have taken your number, but no problem just give of yours okay?” Richard said
“Take your phone, my number is in it i saved it with ‘my brother’ you can call me when you reaches to your girlfriend’s house, and don’t forget to put me in prayer ok” David said,
Richard quickly embraced him tightly tears dripping down his cheek he was so much happy that at last in life once again he would get to see Sandra again his joy was so much but he had a little sadness deep down as the condition of Cole had not been known and that David was not going to escape with them,
“God protect you and lead you away from any danger in jesus name” he prayed
“Amen” David answered..
After some minute they disengaged
“I pray to meet you again in peace” David said,
“Even me also… you are such a nice guy i appreciate your kindness to me thanks” Richard said with a broad smile
“I have to go now… bye for now” David said waving his hand as he head out from the door,
Richard let out a deep sigh as he left, he could not express how he felt that moment, it was just the mixture of joy and sadness,
He slumped heavily on the chair waiting anxiously for a report on Cole health status.
