THE LIFE I DIDN’T WISH FOR EPISODE 28
AUTHOR/WRITER: TERIBA NIMOTA I
Kayode then told his friend ,” tie this bitch of a girl, keep her in the guard room, no food til I say otherwise”.
The Guys answered “yes sir”
I was locked up in a room, my eyes were blindfolded and hands tied. Deep down in my heart, I knew that was the end all I could do was think about life, the struggles. …. I thought about my mother and brother, is this how I’m going to end my life? I wondered. I could remember how I lost my mom, how every bit of my life unravelled. I started crying and praying for mercy from God, it seems God is not even concerned about me, why did he forsake me? why did he allow me to get in wrong hands? why did he take my mother so soon? if not my life would have taken a different path. As I said all that , deep cloud covered my thoughts, I couldn’t even think straight forward. After crying my eyes out and lost all strength I fell asleep.
By the time I woke up, I noticed the blindfold had been removed, all I could see was a very dark room with a little hole where little light penetrated through. I tried to stand up but I couldn’t feel my legs. I remained seated on a spot waiting for my death. I had no strength to even talk anymore and I was very hungry. It’s been two days now no food nor water yet the place was very hot that I felt I was suffocating. I couldn’t call for help my body started failing me, I couldn’t breath well or lift any part of my body. I am dying I said to myself. My eyes were closing and I could see my dead mom waiving to me across a river, my spirit was in another realm. I was walking on water, moving towards my mom. I could see many strange being, I looked back and forth yet I can’t tell where I am.
My eyes were opened to the feel of cold water on my body, it sooth me and woke me up from the trance. I woke up to the reality, the room has been lighted now. I saw Kayode and one other man I couldn’t recognize. As they noticed I’ve woken up they started laughing so loud. I was frightened and shivering. Kayode said to me;
“my love how are you enjoying my dungeon, hope you love the hotness and darkness?”
“hahahahha!!!” they laughed once again. “Sholape I won’t let you die in here just like that, you know I love you? You should have stayed away from me, you shouldn’t have found out about me, you shouldn’t have allowed yourself to be deflowered by another man. Now you are making me start all over again. You just have to pay for knowing the real me”.
I gathered all the strength in me to speak. “Kayode please don’t do this, you know I love you? I promise to keep your secret, nobody will hear anything from me, and please just let me go”.
He then replied to my plead, “my love I would love to, but nobody born of woman knows Kay the blood and live”. The other guy hailed him saying “Kay the Dracula”.
“It’s not time to take her blood yet nigga. Take her to the upper room, give her some food he instructed”. The man said “OK sir”.
I couldn’t walk by myself so I was supported by the man. We finally arrived at the upper room . The room was dark but there’s enough ventilation to support adequate breathing. The room has a single arm chair and a table. I was offered some food, custard and milk, I wanted to reject the food but I couldn’t say a word, the food was placed on the table and the man ordered me to eat, I was so hungry and weak my hands were still tied. I made a signal that I’m not eating, the man said “you idiot think I poisoned the food abi?”. He tasted the food and he forced me to take the custard. After I regained little stamina and I sat down on the chair. Kayode walked in and asked if I enjoyed the meal. He then instructed the man to make sure I eat well till he decides when to execute me. I could feel he has gotten a virgin for the ritual because his face was fiull of smiles. I sat there and I just pitied the girl he used.
The day went by, in the evening I was served beans and plantain. The man will point a gun at me. He wouldn’t untie my hands, he made sure I was eating with my mouth like an animal. “This is the worst experience in my life, I prefer dying of hunger to eating from a plate like a dog I told him”.
“You no dey fear face abi you wan die?”
I replied him that “I’m ready to die”, the man gave me a slap and was molesting me, suddenly I heard a gunshot through the door, guess who it was , it was Kayode, he looked so angry ,
“Charlie” he called the man, “didn’t I warn you not to lay a finger on this girl? I told you she’s special to me didn’t I?”
“Charlie was shaking now and voice breaking too, “you did sir”.
“Then why did you molest her?” before I could blink an eye Kayode had shot Charlie in the arm, Charlie was in agony and begging for his life, I couldn’t help it I just have to plead on his behalf, Kayode is gonna kill him. I pleaded with Kayode to leave Charlie alone, “I told them not to touch you” he said as he shot him trice in the chest. I shouted.
That was the first time I witnessed a trigger being pulled…… “Kayode you just killed a man” I yelled at him.
“oh dear I’ve lost count of soul I’ve killed. I am the Dracula I will kill the body, soul and even the spirit. But you I’ve promised myself to give you a befitting death” Hahahahah!!! he laughed as he walked out of the room leaving the body behind.
