Sir, we just got info that Kingsley just walked into Nancy’s school”
I was in my office at the Smiths Security Agency when Taiwo one of my men in the control unit came in to tell me this news, I looked up from the piles of paper on my desk to him asking, “What?”
“Sir, we think Kingsley is in Nancy’s school right now”
I immediately got up from my seat to see to this, if it’s true then Nancy and Stephen are in danger, and how in the world did he get in anyway, the security in that school is quite tight.
As I got up, a knock came at my door, I invited the person in and James walked in.
I was confused about this cause he’s supposed to be watching over Ada, not be here.
“James you better have a very good reason why you’re here and not in Michael’s house right now protecting Ada”
“It’s a good reason sir, a solid one” I looked at him patiently when he stopped speaking, then I gave him a sharp chin lift, indicating he was to get on with what he had to say, he continued, by saying,
“Ada ran out of the house, running through I.K and Ahmed like the hounds of hell were after her. You know how fast she is sir, we chased her but she was already in a cab by the time we got to her”
“What, why in the world did she leave the house unprotected?”! I yelled.
“I have no idea sir” replied James, his face hard, a muscle on the side of his jaw ticked.
“Did she carry her phone, did you try calling her?” I asked, getting agitated
“Yes sir she did, and I did call her, but she didn’t answer” he replied back tersely.
As I stood there thinking of the different ways I was going to scold Ada, my office phone rang, I picked it up and said harshly, “Gibson”
“Sir its I.K, we know where Ada is, she’s at the school”
“Thanks I.K stick with her yeah?”
“Yes sir” replied I.K through the phone, then I cut the line by putting the phone back in its handle.
I looked to James saying “she’s at the school”
He gave me a sharp nod looking relieved, turned around and walked out of my office.
I picked up my car keys, walking right behind him.
Ada is in so much trouble.
I paid the cab guy quickly, and then rushed out of the cab. I then ran to gate of the school and knocked real hard and fast. The gate shook a bit with the force of my knock. It didn’t take long for the gateman to come out, looking at me like I’m so mad woman that just escaped from an asylum.
“Madam, why you dey knock like that na, you no know sey this place na school?”
I stared, looking at the gateman, yes I said stared. This is because he was funny looking.
He was putting on his normal security uniform but it’s not the uniform per say that was funny looking, it’s the way he wore the uniform.
The long sleeve shirt was navy blue with a small pocket on the left side of his chest, the trousers were black and he wore black boots.
This shirt was tucked into his trousers that were raised high above his bellybutton. Making the whole length of his boots to show, and his trousers to look two times smaller than him, he also had on a green face cap, and this face cap had a yellow bandana tied around it. To sum it all up, he’s quite skinny.
So I stared at him, because I mean who wouldn’t?
“Madam, you dey deaf, you no hear wetin I talk?”
“Huh” I said, looking at him dumbfounded.
“Why you dey knock for the gate like that, you no know sey here na school, wetin dey do you sef ehn?” he asked, a bit pissed.
I shook my head to clear it in order to stay focused and said, “Sorry, there’s an emergency, I need to be in the school like right now” I replied him urgently.
“Emergency gini, if emergency dey, I for know na, nobody tell me sey……. ehnnn student mama dey come, so abeg just go ehn, you go see your pikin later” then he turned around to leave.
Desperately, I yelled at him to stop.
He stopped but looked at me, probably no longer thinking I’m a mad woman, but instead, suspecting me to be an unusual person, probably out to harm the school like planting a bomb in it.
“Madam I sey go your house, you go see your pikin later, haba”
“Please I really need to go in” I said, really desperate now, cause every second I waste puts Nancy in more danger.
“Sorry madam I no fit, you go af to wait” as he said this, a horn came from the other side of the gate. He looked at me a bit, contemplating whether he was to leave me there, or push me away. He chose his first option cause he turned around to open the gate for whoever was horning.
He went in, opened the gate wide enough for the car (an old rickety car if I must say) to pass through, I went to the side of the gate to get out of the way for the car to pass. As it came out of the gate, my eyes on its own looked at the driver to see that it was none other than Kingsley.
Oh my god its Kingsley, and he has a car! That means he’s the one Nancy was talking about. But if he’s out in his car, what about Nancy, I hope she’s ok, I hope he didn’t hurt her? I moved a bit closer to the side of the car as it came closer, to see Nancy at the back seat lying down sideways unconscious. Oh god what do I do? But most importantly, what did he do to her?
Kingsley didn’t notice me cause he was talking to the gateman. I needed to do something fast because already the gateman thinks I’m crazy so if I say Nancy is my daughter he probably won’t believe me. So I had to think of something.
I looked around me quickly in search of something, anything strong and hard. To my relief, I found a short rod lying carelessly on the ground by the fence of the gate, I quickly ran to it to pick it up, then I ran back and stood right in front of the car spreading my arm out wide with the rod in my hand, like that alone will be able to stop him from moving.
I heard the gateman yell, “Madam, wetin dey do you na, commot for road?” then I saw Kingsley smirk at me, like he liked where I was.
It was then I realized I’m quite stupid for a girl. If I had told Gibson about Nancy’s call, all these would have been handled professionally. Than for me to have gone all out acting like I’m super girl.
Kingsley took his hands away from the car wheel and relaxed in his seat, like I was some sort of entertainment or something, his eyes moved to rod in my hand, then back at me. He didn’t mind that I was holding a rod, guess he thought I wasn’t brave enough to use it, but I proved him wrong.
So with all the energy and strength in me, I closed my hands around the rod tightly and began to hit the car with everything I had. The noise and the shouts from both Kingsley and the gateman woke Nancy up cause they were shouting like lunatics ordering me to stop. She saw me in action wrecking havoc to the rickety car but she looked a bit confused, probably wondering how she got in the car in the first place. Then I watched at the same time banging the car as her eyes grew wide with surprise at what I was doing.
As I banged the car I screamed at the top of my lungs feeling my chest contract in pain with my scream,
“Get out of the car Nancyyyyy!!!!”
To be honest I sounded like a raving lunatic, I’m sure I even looked like one too.
I don’t know if she got out but I continued to bang the car, my hands were hurting badly and I was afraid I might have fractured some of my fingers, but I withstood the pain, cause I kept on banging away.
Suddenly I felt strong hands grab me by my waist and I was carried away from the car like I weighed not more than a piece of paper. I kicked and screamed, telling the person to let me go cause I needed to get back to that car and hit it again.
As I was kicking and screaming, I heard a firm, “calm down Ada” said by Gibson. Immediately, I stilled.
He dropped me by the side of his car, opened the passenger’s door, directed me in, closed the door, and used his keys to lock me in.
Then without further ado, turned around and walked back towards Kingsley in his car with determination. I watched him as he walked, thinking maybe he was being funny, I mean he can’t lock me in his car, is he mad? When I realized he wasn’t turning back and all these weren’t a joke, I grabbed the handle of the car door and started struggling to open it. I screamed at Gibson to come back and open it but he didn’t even turn around, maybe because he couldn’t hear me. Making an un- lady like sound in my throat, I folded my hands on my chest and plopped my back on the car seat feeling dejected and pissed.
Then I watched as Gibson and his men ran towards Kingsley, But he and his men were already too late cause Kingsley was already speeding off.
Then I watched Nancy running towards Gibson, Gibson forgot about Kingsley and decided to concentrate on Nancy. She jumped on him and he caught her smoothly, holding her tight. I watched as he held her, one arm around her back and the other holding her at the back of her head. Nancy’s body bucked fiercely with the cry that she was shedding.
My eyes moved away from Nancy to see Kinsgely’s car zoom off, causing the car to make screeching noises and dust to form in the air. As I watched it go, I was grateful Gibson was here to help us. But then I realized that I was in big trouble cause again Gibson was here to help.
