Meet with the daughter. Am already on my way to osubi airport where I can board my flight to Lagos. That's where the daughter's flight from Canada will Land and our chances meeting will occur. I bump into her then turn the charm on . Yea, it can't be that hard to impress her because not to brag but I am a chick magnet. I see the sign showing am close to the airport and I press on the accelerator. I can't be late. I have to catch her flight which is landing by 4:00pm and its already getting late for me. My flight to Lagos shouldn't take long though. Am almost at the airport when a red sport car overtake me from behind and drive in front of me then stop. I step on the break and come to a halt. I will know that sport car anywhere. Ivy. What's she doing here now?. I turn the car's ignition off then step out of the car "My God ivy. What sort of driving is that?!"I yell at her as I walk to her car and knock on her window. She push her door open nearly slamming it into me. "Where are you going Noah.

. Buying new clothes that are totally not your usual style and the rest. My contact told me you booked a flight to Lagos so I followed you."she ramble without stopping. "Hey ivy. There's nothing strange about what am doing. I feel stressed out so I want some time out."I say "Some time out in Lagos? Why Lagos? Why not here? This is super fishy and I know you and your lovefor trouble."she says and I grin "Am just going to Lagos to Board my flight to Canada. That's where am vacationing."I lie. If she knows am going to Lagos, she's gonna keep an eye on me. "Oh really? Well just promise me you won't do anything stupid."she says and I grin "Don't you trust me?"I ask And she just shake her head at me. "I will be back in a month. Don't miss me too much vee" I say then hug her. "Ouch!" I yell as I feel a tiny prick on my arm. I pull away from her and raise my brow at her. "Did you just pinch me?"I ask "Actually I just inserted a tracking device into your shoulder. Am watching you Noah"she says showing me a big needle then get back into her car and drive off like a maniac. "Damn!"I say under my breathe. She's gonna know am not in Canada and start investigating what am doing. I gotta get this thing out ASAP.

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

Three hours later Noah "Look we have just ten minutes before her flight land. Can you get the chip out of my shoulder before that time?"I ask Victor. As soon as I arrived in Lagos, I contacted him to meet me at the airport's men's room. He's good with computers. He should be able to get this thing out. "Okay. I think I can get it out without Miss ivy noticing but 10MINS won't be enough."he says "Just get it out!"I yell exasperated. He brings out a small laptop and start typing like crazy. "Stop playing with your new toy and get this thing out."I grind out "Miss ivy programmed a code on this thing so she'll get the signal if you take it off. I just have to override her code so she wouldn't find out boss"he says "Well the only thing I understood in what you just said is that ivy is a crazy woman. Just do your thing"I say "And done!"he finally says about three minutes later. "Now I just Bought you some minutes. You can now take it off"he says. I slide out the small knife I always carry with me and hand it to victor. "Here. Cut it out"I tell him and he goes pale. "What?! I can't. You might get hurt or die or..."he keeps rambling and I have to shake him to get him to focus. "Just a little cut. Am fine"I say I raise my sleeve up and nod for him to start. His shaky hand grab the knife and I point the spot for him. He presses the knife against my skin then drag it. I bite my teeth to curtail my shout. "Can you see it? You should know what it looks like."I say. "Just a minute. Found it. Now hold still. Here it is"victor says and shows me the tiny silver metal. Its really small. "Did you get the needle I asked for?"I ask him and he nod. He opens his bag and hand me a big needle identical to the one ivy used. "What's it for?"Victor ask and I grin "Hope you love Canada"I say at the same time as I press the needle into his arm. "Oww! Why...so I'll be the one ivy's tracking not you. Smart move boss"victor say while rubbing his arm. "Take this passport. It has my name but I just put your pictures instead. You are leaving on the next flight to Canada. What's the time?" "4:15pm"victor answers. "Shit! Am late. No time to sew myself up."I grab an hanky from victor then tie my arm to stop the bleeding for now. I grab my bag and slide it across my chest. Hopefully she's still in the airport. "Good luck boss. The car is outside. Here's the remote key."I hear victor yell behind me and i stop to catch the key he throws towards me. I hurry to the gate of the Canada flight but its kind of deserted. I look around but don't see anyone looking like the picture of her That victor gave me. I walk towards the baggage reclaim area. I scan the place but don't find her. Am getting more frustrated and I nearly snap when a man walk into me and grab my injured hand to support himself. "Watch it man."I say waiting for an apology or something but he just bend his head down and continue working. I can't even see what he looks like because he's wearing a hoodie and a cap. I grab his hand. "You should say..."I don't finish my sentence before I see my self on the floor as the man flip me and throw me to the ground. An airport security man walk towards our direction but the man slip away. "Are you okay sir"he ask but I just grunt my reply that am fine. So embarrassing. That guy was so much smaller. Now my arm hurts more. I get off the floor and walk towards the airport exit giving up my search for chief's daughter. I press the remote key and the light of a corolla car blinks. I walk tiredly to it and get in. Today has been filled with set backs. I rest my head on the steering wheel. "What the.."I exclaim when the passenger door flies open and the man from the airport flop into the seat.

. "Drive!"he grunt then slam the car door shut. "What the heck!"I yell at him but when he points towards a group of men looking around and clasp his hand together pleading, I don't know why but I turn the ignition on and start the car. A car suddenly drives in front of me and I step on the brake. The car jerk forward and in a bid to stop my passenger from flying out of his seat, I place my hand in front of him. He still jerk forward and my hand comes in contact with fleshy chest. What the hell! I turn to look at my passenger but the face is still concealed by the hoodie and face cap. "Just drive. Please "my passenger plead in a girl's voice. And again my subscious scream; what the hell! I can't believe a woman threw me. Why is she dressed like a man anyways? Thanks for the warm welcome guys.
