I succeed in sneaking into the house and I run upstairs to the room that used to be mine before I left the country. Everything's the same. The perfect room for a seventeen years old girl. I remember loving this life. The shopping, the fame and all of the things that come with being the daughter of a retired NDLEA senior officer. We were just a middle class family from what I remember but when dad busted a big drug operation, he got promoted and then came the money.

I flop on the comfortable bed and close my eyes . The face of that stranger's kiss assaults my mind and I sigh blissfully. Too bad we ain't gonna meet again because I will like to explore our connection. I haven't felt this way in a long time since the incident. Speaking of incident, I have been inside this house for about ten minutes and I haven't freaked out. Its probably because my mind has been occupied by that handsome stranger. I better find something else to wear. Those guys must have told dad that I escaped. He would be worried so I should probably go set his mind at ease.

I search my teenage ward robe but don't find anything that would fit. I was a slim teenager but during these five years i have added up some weight in my hips and ass. What a disaster

. Maybe I can order something online. No. That would take time and my phone is even inside my carry on bag which is also with those guys. I was only able to grab my small pouch containing little money before I bolted out of the airport. Thankfully the pouch I lost doesn't contain anything except some naira notes.

I'm still pondering what to wear when I hear light knocking on my room door. Who could it be? "Who's there?"I ask tentatively "Your dad said I should bring you some clothes. He said you will be needing it" a tiny voice say from outside the door. I walk to the door and open it to find a girl about my age with a package. "Come in" I say and she nod "Wow. I love this your room. Just stated working here and your dad doesn't let just any one in. Just madam Peace." The girl says in one breathe. Wow she's fast. "My dad said you should bring me clothes? How did___" "Well miss, nothing happens in this house without his knowledge. There are cameras everywhere. He saw you climbing the fence then ordered that the security be turned off so you wouldn't be electrocuted on the spot. I was cleaning his room and saw the video. It was so cool how you climbed the walls. Your dad almost had an heart attack. I wonder what he needs all these security measures for. Even the president doesn't have this much security" I raise my brow at her and she cover her mouth with her hand. "Am sorry. I talk too much" she apologize and I smile. "Well i like your energy. Where is my father now?" I ask her. "Well he just left. He just wanted to be home when you get here." she hand me the polka dot jump suit and I take it to the bathroom to put on.

Am out in three minutes and I find her still in my room ooing and wowing over everything. I think I like this girl. "Umm"I say to get her attention "Sylvia miss. My name is sylvia. And this jump suit looks good on you. I shopped for it myself. I even helped you choose the gown for your welcome party tomorrow"she says. "Wait what party?" I ask. I don't like crowds. "Well your dad wants to introduce you to his associates. I think I heard him talk about a guy or something" she says and I know am in trouble. I forgot how my dad liked to control my life.



What a strange day. After encountering ivy before getting to the airport then getting a chip removed from my shoulder, I had to encounter a strange but interesting woman I can't get out of my mind. I was shocked when she kissed me at first but I just had to at least get a taste of those soft lips. Damn that stupid security Man that interrupted my flow. I drop my keys on the small table in the one room apartment victor used to live in. I slip the little purse thingy I stole from her hoodie's pocket. I just wanted to know where she lived so taking her purse was a sure way to leave her stranded with me only to get the shock of my life when her address planed out to be chief badmus' house address. Could this be fate giving me an in into that wicked man's house? I could use this corolla girl to get info about him.

I open the purse and find just about five thousand naira inside. No ID. No need to sweat it. I'll probably see her tomorrow when I attend that welcome party. I could also meet the daughter and begin my plan. My phone start ringing in my pocket and I check the caller ID. Its ivy. Don't tell me I am busted so early in my plan. "Ivy" I say as soon as i connect the call. "I thought you said you were going to Canada" she say. Oops. She sounds angry. "Listen ivy I can explain" "Oh you have to. Explain to me why you are in a strip club in Germany." She says and my mouth falls open. Germany. That idiot. Victor. Why must he choose to go to a strip club. I won't hear the last of this from ivy. "Well I just wanted to check it out. How are you able to call me?" I ask "Just don't do anything illegal or crazy. Enjoy your vacation" she spit out and end the call. Wow. Is she angry? What did I do? I better call that moron before he goes to a brothel next.

I dial Victor's number and thankfully it connects. "A strip club?! Don't you know ivy is watching you?" I yell at him through the phone.

Read " Stolen innocence " by the same author ( Ameh juliet )

. "Sorry boss. I have always wanted to go to Germany" he slurs. The idiot's drunk. When did he get there that he's already in a strip club? "Listen Victor, was there any woman named corolla in chief badmus' house?" I ask. There's a brief silence on the other end before he finally answers. "There was only one young girl at the mansion. I don't know her name though. Could be corolla or Camry"he says laughing and when I don't join in he shuts up. "Sorry boss."he apologizes "Moron"I say then end the call. No use at all. I better get ready for tomorrow.
