They dropped the call and together the three of them walked out of the house. Holding August by the hand and Nancy on the shoulder, they strolled leisurely. They haven’t been walking for long before a Mercedes Benz pulled up to where they were, the back door flipped open and seating at the Extreme end was a man in dark shades, a .38 in his hand, pointed towards Jaycee, he was motioning them to get into the car.
“Are you kidnapping us?” nancy asked
“Get in the car before i bust ya’ll caps” the man commanded in a hoarse voice.
Jaycee moved slowly towards the car like he was going to get in and then in a fast twist, he banged the door shut with his leg and pushed both August and Nancy away, dropping on the floor with a thud, he pulled out a .34 from his trouser and fi red aimlessly at the projected direction of his assailant, 3 shots, the sound of bullets hitting metals and screams from inside the car was all he needed, he jumped up from where he lay, grabbing August and Nancy, he ran as fast as they let him.
Within seconds, the mercedes came back to
life and ran madly after them. They cleared from the pathway to escape being bashed by the car and in a twist of event, a low rider pulled up, Joseph and Lugo jumped down from it, Joseph clutched his Ak while Lugo held a sawed off short gun. Without further delay, they faced the Mercedes and lit it. One could easily see the anger through Joseph’s eyes as he emptied his clip on the car.
Satisfied, they went closer to the car and observed it, the driver was a body of holes as no chunk of meat was in its place, his head busted in two, his hand hanging loosely from his body. Joseph nodded and approached his brother, without a word, he picked August in his arms and made for the car while the rest followed.
With August sitting between him and the steering, Joseph drove silently, Lugo by his side while Jaycee and Nancy cuddled at the back, Nancy was visibly shaken, Jaycee too was stung but he took it like a Donati.
“How did you find us? ” Jaycee asked after sometime
” You said you were with Nancy ”
” Ok, thanks bro ”
” Yea, you killed that guy at the back right?” Joseph asked observing him from the rear view mirror.
“Yea, i shot him”
” Cool, i don’t know how you did it but i can tell it wasn’t easy ”
” Yea, it was crazy”
“Good thing, it takes the stress off me a bit to know that you can actually look out for yourself ”
” Sure” he answered and pulled Nancy closer to himself.
They got home in no time and a worried Maria welcomed them back with hot tasty noodles. The appetite wasn’t there but the aroma of the food helped them finish it.
“Where’s Willie?” Jaycee asked after the meal.
The answer was cold and precise, only Joseph could give that kind of answer. Jaycee smiled and opened his mouth in disbelief.
“What do you mean dead?”
“He got busted today after he dropped Trommel”.
Joseph gave him details of the unsavory event while Maria sobbed, cuddling August like someone was going to take him away.
“Someone wants to wipe out this family? Who is that son of a bitchh?” Joseph asked
“And why would anyone think of doing that?” Lugo asked.
“Why would anybody want to kill Jaycee or August, why would Williams kill Trommel, what was his stake in it?” Joseph asked to no one in particular.
“You heard his statement ” Lugo said
” That was bullshitt, there’s got to be other sides to it”
“i don’t think they wanted to kill me, if they did, i would be dead already, i think their motive was to kidnap me” Jaycee said as he stared into space, the tears in his eyes.
“Kidnap you? To draw me out maybe?” Joseph asked.
“So now, you think they want you dead?” Stanley asked
“It could be my parents murderers, maybe they found out we were getting closer to them” Joseph said.
“Anyone it is, this house here isn’t conducive for you anymore, ya’ll can come over to my house ” Stanley said.
” No, i can’t run from my home for no man, i will stay here and i will send them to their graves”
“What about Maria and August, maybe they should come over, don’t you think? It would be safer for them over at my place ”
” No, i need them where I can be able to see and protect them at all times”.
Stanley left, Jaycee took Nancy home later in the evening. Lugo stayed around with whats left of the Donati family and Maria stuck to August like a precious jewel.
Getting hold of Williams corpse was an impossible thing, the police had insisted that his body now belonged to the state because of what he did, they weren’t even allowed access to see his body for the last time and Joseph wasn’t going to push it, they can as well eat him, he had said.
Their investigation had suffered a huge setback since he murdered the chief, he was their only lead and he was left standing with nothing, except incoherent chatters and inconsistent news, things would have been easier if they were dealing with rival gangs but no, this was something different, he knew that someone with good reasons other than battle for supremacy was Orchestrating these attacks on his family and he has to find out whom and fast for the safety of his family.
Williams wasn’t mourned for long, their sadness over his death soon turned into anger, anger that he had kept them all out, anger that he never turned to his family when he may have needed them most, he was dead and nothing else could be done about it, they just had to pick up and move on with what’s left of them.
Maria insisted they prayed every night, to a God none of his siblings believed in, even she had her own doubts about him but she didn’t know how to shoot guns like her brothers, it was the only place she could hope for protection should her Brothers and their guns ever move far from her. She was the mother of the house and the most loved after August, everyone obliged her without questions.
On a dark Tuesday night, after their usual night prayers, everyone moved to their rooms, Maria with August, Jaycee alone and Joseph had gone out to get some air and clear his head out. At exactly 8pm, Jaycee’s phone vibrated, Nancy’s number displaying on the screen.
“Hello baby” he said as he picked.
“Where are you” she asked in a shaky voice
“I’m home, any problems?”
“Please come over to my house now, i need you, something happened and i’m scared ”
” nany what’s wrong ” he asked jumping from his bed.
“please come” she said and dropped the call.
He dressed up, flipped his cell in his pocket and and headed for the door, on a second thought, he went back to his drawer, pulled it open and brought out his gun, sticking it into his belt, he snuck out into the dark night which was lit by a full moon.
The man switched off Nancy’s phone and tossed it away, putting back the gag on her mouth, he motioned to 3 of his companions to go outside and wait for Jaycee, clutching heavy assault rifles, they went out and positioned themselves in 3 strategic locations away from the where the moon shone. Nancy sat wriggling on the Chair where she was restrained with strong ropes. Her eyes bloodshot from tears and her face red from where the man had hit her many times. On the floor lay the bodies of her parents, both strangled to death.
“Don’t worry, you will join them soon” the man said pointing his gun at the two lifeless bodies “All i need is your honeyboy to show up and then i will give you a quick one”. He said and laughed.
He pulled up on his bicycle and from a distance, he observed the house, the windows were closed and there was no light on them, inside the house was pitch dark. He knew better than going into the house. He Parked his bicycle at a corner and took cover in the
shadow provided by a wall.
From there, he made a wide coverage of the place with his eyes, he knew exactly where one would hide to avoid discovery because he had often hidden at those places with Nancy to have sex out of the watch of her parents. He knew the shapes of each places and looking at the wall across the road , he noticed a new unusual figure, putting everything together, he made out the stature of a man, common sense made him attach a weapon to his hand and the shape was complete .
He pulled out his phone and dialed Nancy’s number again and it was switched off. He dialed Joseph’s number.
“Cool bro, i’m over at Nancy’s and i think something’s wrong ”
” What the fuck are you doing there?”
“She called me up and said something was wrong and she was scared, said i should come over”
“So you are there now?”
“Yea, i think i made out a man with a gun, i’m a little far away”
“Stay put, don’t go anywhere they will see you, i’m on my way”
The call ended and Jaycee waited uneasily for his brother.
Back inside the house, they assassin was getting impatient.
“What the fuck is keeping him” he said and Nancy made some muffled noises. The assassin trying to appear funny, moved to her and placed his ear closer to her mouth.
“I can’t hear you sweetheart, come again”
