The House Help
** She smiled and came to me, looked at her eyes… Only God knows what I’ll do to her if i finally survived this, I felt hatred inside of me. Why did we trust this one witch, is the question i asked myself. She has this innocent face not knowing that she a devil, i looked at Yvonne once more, i feel so sorry for her. But it seems she don’t care what happens here.
Anderson is busy smoking and puffing the smoke in Kingsley’s face, Kingsley tries to set himself free from Anderson who seems to over power him, they gave him the almighty slap of his life, i don’t know what to do next, no solution coming through my skull.
What should i do, I asked my self but no answers, Anderson came closer to south and said to him.
(Pointing at south face)
Anderson : I know you, you shot my men… And I’ll make sure you pay for with your life, unless your boss here (he came to me) is willing to give me the docvments.
Yvonne : (Shouts) He will do no such thing.
(Anderson turns to Yvonne)
Anderson : Oops!!! Sweetheart, I never knew you still exist
**He brings out his gun and points it at Yvonne’s forehead**
Yvonne : Do it, just pull the trigger, but i promise you, you won’t get what you want.
Anderson : Fine, meet your miserable dad in hell
**He tries to pull the trigger**
Me :(Shouts loud) No, please stop, I’ll give you the docvments, I came with it, just please leave her alone.
Yvonne : (Crying) Nick please don’t give it to him
Me : Am sorry Yvonne, i have to
** Anderson smiled and came to me**
Anderson : (Smiling) Good, I love doing business with gentle men. Now can i have it.
Me : On one condition
Anderson : What condition??
Me : You will have to free all of us and also release Tunde and Yvonne’s mum. And am not signing on it until day breaks, once i sign on the docvments, I’ll go with my people and you will go with your men. That’s my condition
Anderson : Fine ** To his men** free the two fools
**His men went in and came out with tunde and a woman who am sure its Yvonne’s mum, Yvonne’s mum and tunde is so weak, only God knows how they survive each day, Anderson untied us all and make sure his men eyes are on us, he brought roasted yam, and shared to us all, Mrs Amanda came to me and said,
Mrs Amanda : (smiling) everything i told you guys back there was all lies, I actually drugged Yvonne’s dad drink, so he slept with me thinking i was his wife, his wife came in and caught us, she got angry and walked me out of her matrimonial home, Anderson came up with this plan so i decide to punish the family, all i ever wanted is the money, thank you for making it possible tonight.
** Yvonne heard everything she said to me and that makes her increase the hatred she has for her, “You won’t go away with this… I said to her
Mrs Amanda : (laughs) You don’t get it, once you sign on that docvments tomorrow, Everything that belongs to Yvonne’s family will turn to mine, and you will all go back to square one.
Yvonne’s Mum : Amanda, I curse the day i knew you.
** She laughs and leave**
Anderson : Now, let me have the docvments.
** I gave it to him, Yvonne look at me with disbelief, it was written in her face “You have failed me”
I thought I was helping, if you were in my shoes…
What will you do????
The House Help
I don’t have to look at Yvonne eyes this time, it was written all over her face “What was he thinking??” That’s what she would be asking her self, but i don’t care so far she is safe, Anderson and Mrs Amanda and her son walked inside a building which has doors and windows in it, Anderson left Two men to watch over us, one of his men is closer to us, while the other one is a little bit far, I noticed my phone screen light flashes on the table where Anderson men kept it, i need to get it, I looked at Kingsley and signaled him to come, because i don’t want Anderson men to notice any illegal movements, Kingsley slowly shifts to where i was.
Kingsley : (With a low voice) What do we do now??
Me : I don’t know, I just hope my plans works out
Kingsley : And what’s the plan??
Me : Just calm down, you see that guard over there? **pointing at the guards closer to us**
Kingsley : Yes.
Me : Tell him we all want to drink water.
Kingsley : But they won’t want to leave their post.
Me : They don’t have choice, so far i am signing on the docvments tomorrow. They wouldn’t want us to die.
Kingsley walk towards the guy, and tell him, I can’t hear what they were saying, but the guard leave his post… I think the answer is positive.
Kingsley came back to tell me the guard went get the water.
Me : (points at the table) Slowly get me that phone on that table
Kingsley gets the phone, I switched it off immediately and put it in my pocket, the guard came out without water telling us the water is finished.
Anderson came out and told us all to get inside, he showed us a room where we can sleep till the next day, we all walked inside the room, at least the room is better than staying outside a whole night.
They locked the room and left while Yvonne hugged me.
Me : Am sorry baby
Yvonne : No, I understand… You don’t wanna lose me.
Me : Yeah, i belief we all will leave here alive
Yvonne : Yeah, and our lives will be miserable.
Me : No, I don’t think so, I have a plan
Yvonne : What plan??
Me : (i switched the phone on, give it to Yvonne) Call the police, tell them, we are trapped inside ota forest, and they need to be here before day breaks…
**She collects the phone as she dialled the police line, they picked, I can here their discussion.
D.P.O : Hello, madam Yvonne where are you at, we checked on you guys but no one is home.
Yvonne : Yeah, you are right, but we’ve been trapped inside ota forest.
D.P.O : What?? Ota forest??
Yvonne : Dpo this not the time to scream, please act fast.
D.P.O : Ok, I’ll inform Ogun state police headquarters immediately, they will be there before day breaks.
Yvonne : Thank you **She hanged the call**
There was signs of relief as we all slept till day breaks, Anderson and his men came to us, they opened the room, he wants me to sign, Mrs Amanda stands besides him.
Anderson : Good morning Mr Nick, I hope you enjoyed your night. **I ignored him** please its time to sign.
(He gave me the docvments and a pen, I signed on it, Yvonne’s mum can’t help but cry. But i have to, Natasha and Rebecca also look weak as i signed on it.
Anderson : (Smiled) You are such a gentle guy. Thanks
Mrs Amanda : ( laughs) welcome to your new era of miserable lives.
Yvonne spit on her face, she slapped Yvonne and left, Anderson immediately closed the door, not only close, they locked it from the outside
Me : Hey! Anderson that’s not what we planned.
**From the outside**
Anderson : You gave me your conditions, and this is my conditions. You all will die there. Thanks for signing on the docvments.
Me : Anderson… Anderson… (I shout his name, but he never respond) They’ve left us **i said to others.
We are doomed…
