Hey guys...thanks for sticking around!


Well madam...she died last year....!

My heart sank as I heard the statement.

No, it couldn’t be!

I wanted to talk but it was like something was blocking my throat. Suddenly I felt a little dizzy and I had to hold the chair to maintain my balance.

“Are you okay madam?” Mr chuks asked, reaching out to steady me and I looked down in embarrassment as I let my emotions betray me.

“I am so sorry sir….” I started, clearing my throat which sounded a bit husky as if they were not mine. “I..I just never expected that such a talented girl could die so suddenly . What happened?”

The man sighed regrettably, taking out her picture. ‘Well, she was sick or so I heard. That was shortly after the corpers have left though. She was really sick and that was why she wasn’t in this picture. The sickness lasted for a while as her mother had said.”

“Was she taken to the hospital?”

Mr chuks shrugged slightly. “I thought she was then we found out she wasn’t. It was really a complicated story.”

I sighed as I took another file. I didn’t want it to seem as if I was only interested in Henry

. Fortunately, I found that the file was Felix’s.

“Oh, this is Mr Felix. What subject did he teach?”

“Urm,,,it should be in the file. He and Mr Henry were very good with the students. We have other good students that are alive though so that your journey will not be wasted.”

Felix had taught Economics while Henry took political science. They were seen together in all of the pictures except that where Henry had taken a picture with Benita, Felix was not there.”

“Well, she was a brilliant student to have been given an award. Her demise would have created such a great hole in her family.”

“Well that’s for sure.”

“Can you give me her address. I really need to go see the family….”

“Wow! Sure. But you are coming back here right?”

I nodded. Ofcourse.

*************** ******** ************

The house was a little bungalow, moderately furnished. I climbed down from the bike and paid my fare, then carefully  I walked to the front door and just a I rasied my hand to knock…..I stopped.

Am I really doing this? Am I actually facing my nightmare? Once I knock and the door opens, there is no going back….I said to myself. But I knew I had signed up for this when I had taken a flight to Kano. Just as I wanted to knock again, my phone rang. It was Kate.

“Hello Kate….”

She said my husband has given her 24 hours to produce me else she will be arrested for kidnapping. She wanted me to hurry up.

“Thank You.

Read " Black Widow " by the same author ( Tobi Loba )

. I will get there soon.”

Just as I ended the call, Felix’s call came in.

He was worried sick and wanted to know where I was.

“Felix. I will be back soon. I am so sorry for getting you so worried. I will let you know once I’m back…”

He said Henry was worried sick and greatly troubled. He also said he had calmed him down from calling the police. He begged me to call him but I said not yet. I was worried about him the other day, it was his turn now.

I ended the call without disclosing my location. Just as I raised my hand again to knock …the door opened without me touching it.

Waye kai?”

A female voice shouted at me from within.

Waye a wurin?”

The voice said again. It sounded like an elderly woman’s voice but I couldn’t understand the language.

“hello, good afternoon ma.”

Me kake so?”

I sighed. “Please does anyone in here speak English?” I shouted back .

“Yes we do. What do you want?”

AT the sound of the manly voice that spoke back, a chill crept up my spine and For some second, I felt as if the ground would give way under me…

I could see a figure approach me and my heart beat faster …when I finally saw his face…I gasped…it was the man that had raped me….the one that had taken my virginity….
