When I regained consciousness, I was
sitting on a chair facing a computer
screen. I felt exhausted and everything felt
blurry. I turned my head around and saw
Segun’s figure placing someone on a
“Wait a minute, is that detective Mike?” I
“You are up! That’s a good thing, now get
ready we have work to do.” Segun replied
me then he walked up to me and started
turning the computer on.
Realizing that I was still staring at the
detective he said. “Oh, don’t mind that one;
he is dead, died of un-natural causes. My
bad, but we will blame it all on you.”
I had to appreciate his sense of humor. I
gave him a weak smile.
“I guess karma is a real b—h.” I grunted
with more effort this time. Segun returned
I thought I could try my hand at
manipulation. “We are beginning to get
Segun cut me off with a loud laugh. “Don’t
be quick to judge me because we shared
and appreciated a few jokes.” He said.
“It was worth a try.” I shrugged.
By then the computer had finished booting,
Segun grabbed a sit and sat right next to
me. He began moving the mouse around
the screen refreshing the desktop a couple
of times—good to know that this killing
moron knows some common computer
procedures—he finally stops over a
browser and double clicks it.
“hmm Segun for someone of poor
educational capacity, I’m impressed.” I said,
throwing Segun a smirk.
“Shot up Charles, I’m not an illiterate” he
fired back still busy with his computer task.
“You know if I and Mike ever start that
company, you would be my first employee.”
“I can’t believe you are still holding on to
that.” He looked at me puzzled.
“I can’t believe you can’t even recognize
“Did you just call me an idiot?” his mood
was different now, like he would break my
neck any moment.
“Indirectly speaking, yes” I said without
giving a d–n.
Segun landed a blow to my mouth.
“You are beginning to lose your touch son,
try hitting the gym, that didn’t hurt at all” I
said amid strong ache around my lip area.
“Yeah but it was enough to lure blood out
of your mouth.” Segun said pleasurably.
“Oh this is nothing compared to what you
will lose.” I said while rubbing the blood off
with my hand.
“What are you talking about?” Segun was
“Step aside Segun, he is trying to divide
and conquer.” Came Mike’s voice, he
stepped into the room holding a short gun.
I exhaled in disgust. “You know you are
becoming quite smart recently Charles.” He
said with a grin.
I rolled my eyes “Thanks to you and your
stupid scheme, murderer, what do you
want from me?”
“Me a murderer? Coming from the guy that
raped and killed my wife; I just want
“Oh cut the crap Mike, I did my home work;
you are a bachelor, I was never actually
employed at TMN, you want my money
which you will never get and Tiffany is a
Mike didn’t look surprised. “Well then,
seems you figured everything out, let’s get
“I ain’t working s–t, better kill me.” I said
“I will, trust me. But you have to transfer
your funds to a specific account, then I will
frame you for more deaths even yours.”
Mike said remorselessly.
“Why not just get on with the death part,
cuz I will never do your bidding.”
“Segun, get the equipments” Mike said and
segun briskly walked out. ‘oh boy, are
these guys planning on torturing me?’ I
My fear was confirmed when Segun walked
back in with a plier and wired thingies’.
“You are not going to use that on me, are
you?” I asked Mike.
“I won’t have to, if only you comply…”
“And when I do comply, you kill your
partner Segun here and frame me for his
death before killing me and make it look
like a suicide.”
Segun shifted uncomfortably on his chair, I
was gaining, buying time for Victory to
track my IP and find this location.
“I don’t dictate who lives or dies here
Charles.” Mike blurted.
“Yeah right, the invisible director, do I ever
get to see him?”
“Trust me Charles you will, and it will be
the most devastating moment in your life.”
Mike said with almost a whisper.
While at it, feeling slightly agitated cuz of
the torture equipment I saw, Mike had
already opened the online banking platform
and was asking me to key in my data. I
scoffed at him, wishing he knew how ready
I was to die or be tortured before I let him
get my money.
A furious Mike brought out the plier and
started working his methods on my thumb.
“You know we could go on and on until you
have no finger left.” He said pressing had
on my thumb.
I tried to hold back my scream but the pain
over powered me, I let a mild cry.
“A very good idea to destroy the one thing I
could use to type at the keyboard.” I said
“Don’t worry Charles, you can still tell me
with your mouth.”
I scoffed “better be prepared to ply my
mouth” I said, brought out my tongue and I
got a blow for that.
“I used to look up to you Mike, why are you
doing this?” I was getting curious now.
For a second I saw Mike give way to
“Just type in your details and do the d–n
transfer.” Mike said.
“Like I said earlier, I won’t do it.” I shook
Mike grabbed me by my shirt collar. “Look
here son, you think I am proud of what I
am doing? You think I don’t wish to start
that company with you? Desperate times
calls for desperate measures so don’t think
am the villain here, am the victim just like
“What are you talking about?”
“They one they call the director, you thinks
it’s a joke? I…”
“That’s enough Mike! now shut up and do
your job.” Segun cut him mid-sentence.
“No you shut up! And let me let him know
that I am not doing this under the evilness
of heart but under duress!”
“You are saying too much Mike.”
As those two started arguing, I took that as
my cue to run. I stood up and headed for
the door, Segun was the first to notice as
he chased after me. I urged my fragile legs
to carry me faster, when I reached the door
it flew open and I thought that was divine
intervention not until I saw someone at the
other end, someone I knew very well,
someone so close to me, no wonder these
people knew so much about me. I felt
anger and betrayal as my closest friend—
Ken—aimed a pistol at my fore head.
