I stood transfixed, staring at Ken trying to
see if he felt remorse for what he was
doing, the b—–d kept the gun at my head
level staring back at me. I clenched my fist
almost wanting to punch him but I have
punched enough people to know the
“So this is it, your revenge plan.” I said to
Ken’s face, his face had no expression.
“You deserve whatever that is happening to
you.” He replied me.
“How do I deserve it, what did I do wrong?”
I was almost yelling at Ken.
“You are not a friend to me, I needed help
and you couldn’t come through for me.”
“Do I look like your piggy bank? Friends do
not encourage laziness”
“I wasn’t lazy!” Ken yelled and I raised a
brow. “I was into a business; I invested all
my money into it, turned out to be a scam.
I was broke and I was in debt, and then I
turned to my so called friend for help and
he just turned me down. He didn’t even ask
what I needed the money for.”
“You are a liar, I remember asking you, and
you hung up on me!”
“After you started raining abuses on me”
Ken and I were both fuming. “So right now
I want you to take your a-s back to that
seat and empty your account for me.” He
said and aimed the pistol fiercely at me. I
slowly retreated back to the chair with a
resolve not to lay a hand on the computer,
I was ready to go through torture even
ready to die, but these captors of mine
won’t see a dime of my hard earned
I sat on the chair idle for twenty seconds
before I heard Ken exhale sharply. “Well
seems like you are shy around this crowd.”
I made no movement. “Well then let’s get
rid of a few for you. Mike you were telling
Charles something, I would like you to
continue.” Ken said.
Mike walked to where I was and I saw
remorse in his eyes like he was almost
crying. He squatted beside me and said.
“Charles like I said, I am under duress here,
I’m not a bad person. These people got
something on me, I know you think I am
the master mind, it’s not me it’s…”
“Enough!” Ken exclaimed, I heard a
deafening sound, and then I saw blood
oozing out from a hole in Mike’s head. He
fell on his side and never moved again.
“Segun, you have any last words?” Ken
turned to segun, aiming his pistol at him.
Segun looked infuriated he was about to
dash for Ken, Ken fired.
Segun clutched at his chest, staggered
backward, fell on his back and then he was
“Huh that does it.” Ken smirked at me “Just
the two of us left now, what’s it gone be?
You playing along or playing against?”
I remained silent, Mike was right; meeting
Ken was the most devastating moment in
“Look Charles I know you are going
through a lot but you deserve it.”
I looked at Ken with disdain, I wanted to
launch at him but I thought about it. I knew
I was ready to die instead of transferring
my money, but I didn’t want to provoke it
because there is chance that I could be
saved. If only Victory would get my
Everything seemed surreal, I have been
living a life someone else wrote for me, I
have played along to their plot, did
everything they wanted. Since Mike said he
was manipulated into doing what he did
then maybe Tiffany was also forced to tick
me, because when I had her, she felt so
real, there is no way sleeping with me was
part of the script. I could remember she
came to warn me heck she even said she
All hatred I felt towards Tiffany was
resolved. I was beginning to miss her
I looked at Ken all I could do was wish him
harm. “You will never get away with this I
Ken chuckled “That joke’s on you bro, think
about it, everything is labeled on you, you
bleeped and killed an actress then you ran,
shot a police woman and ran again, now
you have killed a tech tycoon and some
other random guy, and soon you will take
your own life. Please remind me how I am
“What did I do wrong to instill so much
“Simple! You were stingy to me.”
“How did you do it? How did you get all
these people to do your bidding?” I said
with croaked voice.
Ken exhaled. “Well it wasn’t easy, but
sometimes God just decides to bless you
with wisdom, wisdom that makes you cook
up plans and alternate plans, well
calculated scenarios. Let’s see, I met Mike
at a casino, conned him to brokenness and
then he stated using company’s money, I
later got him in scandalous situations
started blackmailing him, well enough
“What about Tiffany?”
“I won’t tell you because, you are wasting
my time. Why not start transferring, I will
tell you the whole story when it starts
reading in percentages.”
“Forget about it Ken that is not happening.”
Ken became worried and I wondered why.
He brought his phone and dialed someone.
“Where are you?” he asked the receiver
angrily, waited for a reply. “Then come
“Hey buddy, I’ve got a surprise for you.” He
said and pointed towards the entrance. I
wondered what the surprise could be, then
I saw it or should I say her. Victory walked
into the room tensed, I sat gaping at her in
shock. For a moment there I thought
Victory was betraying me until I saw a hand
holding a pistol emerge, I looked at victory
who was apologizing with her facial
gesture and took a resolved breath. She
came for me, but why the hell did she
I stared at the hand and deduced that it
was a female hand, I wondered who it
could be, and then majestically a foot
stepped in, followed by a full body. The
face I saw sent a wave of shock through
my entire body.
Standing before me, in the flesh was
The new development bewildered me;
Tiffany’s appearance was driving me nuts.
“How are you alive?” I stammered while
facing the girl I thought had died in my
Tiffany stood silent, she didn’t respond to
me, and she was even avoiding eye contact
“Answer me!” I screamed at her.
“It was all an act.” She said plainly without
looking my way.
“Is he manipulating you too? Is he
blackmailing you into doing this?”
“Err Tiffany’s case is a bit different, you see
we are in this together, Right from day
one.” Ken said.
“Ken we need to hurry up, this place is
compromised.” Tiffany said.
“Well that’s a welcome development, pretty
lady you must be acquainted with Charles,
you see we need him to do something for
us pretty desperately.” Ken said to Victory
while caressing her face with his gun.
Victory was visibly nauseated by the corpse
around her and it was taking a traumatic
toll on her.
Ken went behind her and griped her tight
on the neck, aiming his gun on her temple
he said. “You don’t want the blood of this
lovely lady on your hands Charles do you?”
“Let her go.” I pleaded with Ken.
“Not until you let all those money go.” He
“It’s the money you want right? How am I
sure that you won’t kill her after I transfer
“You can have my word on that one, let’s
say this is your death request, now who am
I to deny you that? I promise to let her go
once the transfer starts counting in
percent.” He said.
Knowing that I put Victory into this it was
my duty to set her free at whatever cost. I
sat down and started carrying out the
transaction. Tiffany stood near me to make
sure I was doing the right thing, her
presence irritated me.
When I was done and the transaction
started counting on percent I told Ken to let
Victory go, he said he was sorry that
Victory knows their identity and he couldn’t
risk getting exposed. Victory hastily moved
the computer from my arms reach and
pointed her gun fiercely at me. Then it hit
me hard, the thought that I had failed at
“Ken, please don’t do this, remember you
gave me your word.” I pleaded with Ken.
“Ken you are not that kind of person, if our
friendship means anything to you please let
“What friendship? We became enemies the
moment I made my first kill for this plan to
go through. So don’t mention friendship
I looked at the monitor and the transaction
was already at 15% I kept on pleading with
Ken, I was almost crying.
“Ken please you have to let her go, I will
make sure she doesn’t out you I swear.”
“How are you going to make that happen?
You will be dead anyway.”
Victory was already shedding tears; I could
hear her muffled cry as she was stamping
her feet on the floor. I felt deeply sorry for
the girl, I had put her into this situation,
and there was nothing else I could do other
than plead for her life.
“Victory” I called out to her, she looked at
me with teary eyes and face. “You are
going to be ok.” I said and she nodded a
I checked the transaction counter and it
read 25%, it was unusual that instead of a
time factor, someone’s life was hanging on
a percentage factor and at that moment I
couldn’t be more grateful to slow network.
It turned out pleading with Ken was proving
futile, I turned to the person I hated the
most in the world Tiffany.
“Tiffany please do this for me.” I said. She
looked away. “Just let her go, if not for
anything, for what we felt for each other
when we made love.” And that was the
“What? You slept with him?” Ken said
“I did it to make everything more
believable.” Tiffany said with clarity but we
all knew it was a lie.
“That wasn’t in the script you w—e!” Ken
retorted. Tiffany gaped. “You are a d–k
Ken, so that’s what I get for going out of
my way to make your shitty plan work.”
“You call sleeping with another guy going
out of your way? How dare you try to
justify infidelity? And you call my plan
shitty but look at the results.” Ken said and
motioned to the computer. I glanced at the
computer and saw the counter at 78%.
“Did you think Charles would agree to do
this transaction if I hadn’t brought the girl
in? I am not justifying infidelity, I didn’t
cheat on anyone.”
“Of course you cheated on me! We were
“We were not dating Ken, we met and had
sex, you mentioned your plan to me and I
bought it. There is nothing going on, it’s
Ken left Victory and walked towards Tiffany
aiming his gun at her. “Well then I don’t
need you in my plan anymore.”
“So do I.” Tiffany said and then I heard a
clicking sound. Someone was pulling their
trigger but the gun wasn’t firing. When I
looked I realized it was Tiffany.
Ken chuckled. “You can never trust bitches;
I suspected something like this would
happen that’s why I gave you an empty
gun.” Ken said without noticing that Victory
was aiming a gun nervously at his back.
“Drop your guns” She said. On hearing that
Ken swung around to fire at her, but he
was too late as Victory reflexively shot
three bullets into his chest. Ken fell on his
back laboring for breath.
Victory nervously dropped the gun she was
holding, immediately Tiffany dashed for
Ken’s gun and I went after her kicking the
pistol from her hand when she grabbed it.
She swung around and dashed a blow to
my left cheek, I countered her second blow,
held her hand and pinned her to the floor. I
quickly looked at the monitor and the
counter read 97%. I screamed urging
Victory to cancel the transaction. Victory
hurried for the computer; midway there the
counter read 98%. Tiffany was still
struggling under me. When Victory finally
reached the computer she saw that the
mouse had been disconnected, and the
counter read 99%.
Just when I thought all hope was lost,
Victory pulled the modem from the
computer. After loading for a few seconds
the monitor displayed ‘connection not
found.’ And I took the deepest breath in my
I still held Tiffany down on the floor, she
kept on struggling.
We heard the sound of sirens approaching
then it stopped right in front of the house.
Victory went to the window to check it out.
“It’s the police” she said. I looked at her
quizzically. “Don’t worry I contacted them
before coming here.” She assured me.
A slightly built man dressed in police
uniform walked in followed by two other
policemen. One was tall the other short but
they both looked skinny. The three cops
gaped at the scene before them like it was
a horror movie.
“A matter of life and death and this is when
you decide to show up?” Victory was
saying to the first cop.
“I wasn’t even going to come” the cop
replied Victory. “By the way who killed all
these people?” He said, referring to the
dead bodies around.
“He did” Victory said pointing at Ken “and
he was going to kill more before I stopped
“So you killed him” The second cop asked.
“In self-defense yeah” Victory said. She
looked calmer now.
“So what’s that one doing on top that
one?” The first cop asked, pointing to me
on top of victory.
I quickly stood up. “She is his accomplice.”
“I see.” The cop replied then he gaped, his
two partners gaped too.
“Isn’t that the bleep and run guy? ;D ” the
third guy said. “That’s him.” The other two
cops replied uniformly.
“Officers thank God you are here.” Tiffany
was saying before the first cop cut her
“Wait a minute; aren’t you supposed to be
dead?” The cop said to Tiffany
“It’s a long story officer, these two
kidnapped all these people including me
and brought us here to kill us, they
succeeded with the others but you and
your men arrived just in time to safe me.”
Tiffany said and I saw the b—h for who she
really was, no remorse at all and for a
second there the cops seemed to believe
“Shut up b—h!” Victory exclaimed “I got
solid evidence here.” She said and reached
for her insides. Next she brought out a tiny
camera device and handed it to the first
cop. “There you go, loud and clear.”
The sorry look on Tiffany’s face changed to
agitation, she immediately went after the
second cop and dis armed him, and then
she aimed the gun at the first cop.
The three policemen exchanged funny
looks. “Drop the gun madam, it’s useless”
the first cop said.
“Why should I do that, I refuse to get
caught” Tiffany was aiming at everyone.
“The gun is empty, I’m a rookie; they won’t
let me go out with loaded guns” the second
cop said, brought out handcuffs and cuffed
“Am detective Sam and these are my
partners detective Tom and Jeremiah
respectively.” The first cop introduced
themselves. “And you miss Tiffany, you are
under arrest for assaulting a police rookie
and if we find evidence in this record that
you have a hand in this deaths… well lets
watch the video first.” Detective Sam said
to Tiffany and then he turned to us and
said. “You two still have to come with us to
“No problem.” We both said.
At the station, after all testimonies and
evidence was gathered and investigations
carried out on the crime scenes, I was
labeled a free man. I never saw or spoke to
Tiffany again and I never cared.
