I discretely hopped out of the taxi, taking
glances at my surrounding I slipped into
the TMN parking lot. I located Mike’s car,
pulled out the phone and dialed Victory’s
While waiting for her to pick up the call I
saw someone on a hoodie walking into the
parking lot towards me, I couldn’t
recognize the face as it was smartly
covered with the hood.
I quickly turned and dashed for the far end
of the parking lot, the hooded guy followed
suit. I urged my legs to carry me faster,
concluding that this mission was a bad
I was still running when I heard a car roar
to life behind me, I turned my back and
saw the hooded guy reversing out of the
parking lot. I sighed loudly and calmed my
I checked my phone and saw that the call
had ended while I was being chased by my
own paranoia; I re-dialed and waited again
for Victory to pick up.
My heart was still pounding heavily,
paranoia really is a b—h.
“Hello Charles what is happening, were you
being chased?” Victory’s voice came with
“It was a misunderstanding but am fine
now” I said still breathing heavily.
“Forget about it, meanwhile I am at the
parking lot.” I said walking briskly towards
“I can’t come down there now, am on
“It’s ok, I don’t need you down here rather I
need you to do something up there then
later down here.”
I exhaled sharply “I need to get into Mike’s
car trunk, that’s the only way I can get into
his compound. So I will need his car keys.”
There was a little pause on the other end of
the line which seemed like minutes. When
Victory spoke again, she spoke with
dexterity. “You my friend must be on a
lucky streak today.”
“Gist me” I said keenly.
“Mike just gave Iyke his car keys to put
something in the trunk for him.”
“Iyke.” I paused trying to pin point where I
knew the guy “Isn’t that the technician guy
that you used to play those days?”
“You’ve got a good brain Charles, though I
“He still got that thing for you?”
“Kid wouldn’t take a hint” I imagined her
rolling her eyes.
“Well that’s by the way, now you hide close
to Mike’s car cuz the guy is already on his
way. I am currently coming after him and
we need to be fast cuz Mike is about to go
out.” She said then the line went dead.
I sighed heavily and realized I was smiling
sheepishly. I had to chuckle. Thinking of
how I would be able to pass through this if
it wasn’t for Victory. I owe the girl a lot. I
placed my hands on Mike’s trunk,
wondering how I had grown accustomed to
people’s car trunks.
It will only last for a while Charles—I
I started looking around for any sign of
Iyke, I saw the clumsy fellow entering the
parking lot holding a parcel—faced down—
must have been lost in thoughts.
I quickly hid myself under the car still able
to see Iyke. He walked sluggishly towards
my direction, paused in front of the car
muttering a curse for Mike. He circled
briefly to the front door. I heard a clicking
sound which was followed by a beeping
sound. I wondered how I was going to
enter the trunk now without being seen by
Then I heard Victory’s soothing voice.
“Iyke love” she was saying “Please come let
me tell you something”
“Oh ok just a mi minute” Iyke was
“So you can’t leave whatever you are doing
for me?” She said compellingly.
“Let me just dro drop th this” He
“Baby me, come now” she kept on.
I heard Iyke sigh heavily. “Ok” he said and
started moving towards her.
I took that as my prompt and slipped out
from under the car.
“Baby why do i have to call several times
before you answer me.” Victory was saying.
“I am so sorry” Iyke replied with yet another
I took the moment to admire Victory’s
beauty, but I hated what she was doing to
the poor guy. Although it was in my favour,
I wished I could just blow some common
sense into Iyke. Victory gave me a
menacing glare, without much hesitation I
opened the trunk and folded myself inside
then I carefully droped the door. Since
there was no way I could shut the door left
it that way.
“What was it you wanted to tell me?”
“I just wanted to talk to you, it’s been a
while.” Both their voices sounded close.
“Baby look at that!” Victory sounded
“What?” Iyke sounded agitated.
The car trunk flew open and then slammed
shut and within those split seconds I saw
Victory’s cute face, she didn’t even look
down at me. That was definitely a smart
move from her.
“Come on Iyke do what you came here to
do, I will see you after work.” I heard
Victory’s fading footsteps after that.
Seconds later I heard Iyke saying “Dude I
think that girl is into me again!” he sounded
excited as if he was on the phone.
He waited and said “The model chick that
works at the tech company where I work
He waited again, scoffed and then said “I
told you no lady could resist me” he too
started fading away.
I shook my head inside the trunk and
thought what romantically frustrated fellow
this guy was.
I brought out the phone and dialed victoy’s
number. The line rang and connected.
“Mike is approaching you, call me when you
get there” She said quickly then ended the
call. A few minutes later the car engine
roared to life, few seconds following that;
the car was put to motion.
Inside the hot trunk I wished Mike would
just head to this house directly. The phone
in my hand gave a beeping sound, I
checked to see a low battery warning. I was
We have been on the road for close to an
hour now, suddenly the car came to a
I heard a footstep approaching the trunk,
and then there was a loud knock on the
“Knock knock who is there? Tiffany
Johnson? No not Tiffany Johnson, I killed
Tiffany Johnson.” I heard Mike say with a
scoff. My heart started pounding hard
against my chest. “Then I wonder who
could be in my car trunk” On saying that he
jerked the door open.
“Hello Charles” he said with a sneer. I was
about to throw myself out of the trunk
before he slammed the door shut. Reflex
took over reason as I started to hit the door
hard with my body. Before long my body
jerked backwards as the car started moving
again, I felt pain within me as I lay there
I thought this was the end for me.
