.

I sat on the floor , my whole body was weak. All I had to do was wait for the bad news now.
The pictures suddenly started delivering but it was too late at this point. The killing had probably already commenced. There was barely anything I could do at this point. Then , I remembered Christy also had Miss Williams number and they talk. So I rushed into the hostel. It might be too late. But then , I still had to try.

_

Me : Christy , where is your phone ? I want to make an important call .

.

Christy : What is wrong with you Matt ? We have issues on ground and the next thing you wana do is call ?

.

Me : We will deal about the issues later . I need your phone right now.

.

Christy : No , I am not giving it to you.

.

Me : I need the fucking phone!!! This is about life and death. This is about Anu your cousin!

.

Christy : Jeeez ! What !

.

Me : Yes ! I will explain to you later ! Just give me the damn phone.

_

She looked for the phone in her bag and gave it to me. Segun already stepped out of the room. I didn’t care where the idiot went to anyway.

_

Me : What did you save Miss Williams no with ?

.

Christy : ” Aunty Sandra ”

.

I dialed the no. She picked up immediately.

_

Miss Williams : Christy dear . How are you ?

.

Me : This is not Christy! This is Matt. You and the girls are in danger . If the guys that are there to kill all of you are not there yet. Then they are close. Please , evacuate the girls right now.

.

Miss Williams : Are you certain of what you’re saying Matthew!!

.

Me : This is not a time to argue , just evacuate the girls!

.

Miss Williams : I am not at the house yet but I am close. I hope this is not some trick to gain my favor . If I realize you are playing pranks. You will suffer for it.

.

Me : Don’t be stupid!!! I am not kidding here . Lives are at stake , you’re talking about gaining your favor. Just do what you can to save the girls.

.

Miss Williams. Ok then , we shall see.

_

She ended the call. Christy looked like they just forced a whole planet down her throat. The look of disbelief in her eyes was scary.

.

Me : Babe , I will explain everything to you. Just calm down.

.

Christy : I can’t calm down until I know what’s happening here ! What’s your business with Aunty Sandra ? How is Anu involved ? And what is this talk about Danger , Death and all?

.

I had no choice than to tell her the whole truth at this point. So I explained everything to her. I’ve never seen her so furious in my life. She asked why I had not reported to the police instead . But I explained how that will eventually come back to bite me. Christy didn’t want to understand , mostly because her cousin was involved. I literally had to lock the door so she won’t make her way to the police station. I held onto her phone so she won’t call anybody too

_

I sat there waiting on any news. Waiting and waiting. While Christy kept staring at the door waiting for the perfect moment to escape. I raised my head to the ceiling and I regretted every moment that led to this. How I met Miss Williams , how I stepped into that room , how I abused Aminat , how I disobyed my mother ! I laid on the bed clenching the keys to the door while I reminisced. After about an hour , Maurice messaged on Whatsapp. My heart was beating as I checked it.

_

The msgs read :

” Guy , you will be deleted “

” You been give Williams heads up abi ?”

” Even after I eventually delivered the picture you sent late and I pleaded that they shouldnt touch that girl “

” The guards fucking dropped two of the guys that went for that operation and it’s because they knew they were coming”

” If you know what is best for you . Run!”

“Cause Mikey is coming for you “

_

Jesus Christ ! I am gonna die ? No no no. Almost immediately , Christy’s phone rang. It was her Uncle. They were informing her that Anu had been found hail and hearty coupled with about 3 other girls. The news made her scream but I could hear the shock in her voice when she repeated the words ” THEY FOUND HER PREGNANT ?” . Then she ended the call saying ” I am coming immediately ” .

_

Me : Christy. I know you are angry at me and all but please I beg of you. Don’t tell Anu’s parents my involvement in the issue. Please.

.

Christy : Just open the door and let me go see my cousin

.

Me : Babe ,please.

.

Christy : Matt , open the door!

_

So I went to get the door for her and she left . I had no idea what she was gonna do and I didn’t plan to find out. I started packing my bag. I picked about 5 shirts , 2 pants trousers , A jean and few other things I am sure I would need. I am going straight to Ibadan to stay with my Uncle for a while. I made my way to my neighbor’s room to borrow money for transport. As I entered , there were four of them looking at pictures on their phones using words like ” Jesus ” ” Chai ” ” Why people wicked like this ? ” . I asked to see what they were looking at. And Lo and behold , it was a picture of Miss Williams body severely matcheted by a roadside in Lekki. I scrolled down to see pictures of the bodies of the huge guys that beat me up. They had several bullet wounds. Mostly to the eyes , neck and foreheads. I kept scrolling. And I read the caption.

_

” Massacre as secret baby factory was visited by Men of the underworld – 13 found dead including 5 pregnant girls , More pictures coming soon “

.

God. What have I done? This is all my fault. The images crept into my soul and I felt it shrink. This was already on major blogs . Eventually , my involvement in this will surface. I couldn’t even read the full story. I asked to borrow some money and I was given 3k by my neighbor as he was sure I’ll definitely return his money. I left with my bag.

.

As I got outside. I spotted a white Benz coming. This was Maurice’s car. I looked well as I made out a black angry face. Without Mistake , that’s was Michael’s face. There were about 3 others in the car. Wtf! I think he already spotted me too as he increased his speed. I dropped my bag . I ran back into the house and I made my way to the backdoor. I rushed for the fence and climbed like a monkey . I was about jumping down when I started hearing people yelling from inside the house.

_

” Where is that fucking Jew ? ”

” Make una tell am make e comot or all of una fingers go start dey drop ”

.

I could hear one of them running towards the backdoor while his machete scratched the walls . I immediately jumped down and started running….
