My Madam And I-Episode67 - 70




My Madam And I-Episode67

I had died several times in my mind before we arrived the station .

I was taken to the same office I had visited severally. I sat impatiently trying to conceal how nervous I was. Few minutes later Thomas joined me. He looked surprised to see me, then smiled.

” Mike Mike, so you’re here again? ”

I tried to let out a little smile then asked him nervously almost in a whisper.

” have you seen the person who’s to identify us? ”

” no. Let’s wait and see what unfolds” . He said casually. Then he looked at my bandaged arm that was suspended round my neck and said. ” I heard about your accident. Sorry I didn’t show up , was out of town”.

I cared less of what he thinks my concern was how to get out of the mess I was in.

About an hour later, two police men came in and escorted us into an empty room and asked us to stand facing a big mirror in front of us. We obeyed and was looking at our reflections in the mirror. They asked us to turn our left, then right. Later ushered us back to the room we once were.

After waiting for a long time, we were asked to go home. I was surprised they let us go like that. I didn’t know what happened and they didn’t bother to tell us. Thomas had been calm and smiley all the way.

” why are you so calm? ” I asked in his car as we were about driving off.

” do you think you are the only one with people of importance? ” he said smiling.

“how do you mean? ” I asked.

” I know a lot of top men in this country, many I’ve dated, many want to have me. I knew about the identification nonsense before now. We dealt with it” he said , then engaged his engine.

I was getting better and I had resumed working with Phila’s dad. Phila kept our relationship at friendship level, but we were still best of friends. Ruth automatically made herself my wife since Sandra had not returned. She was sent outside the country for a peace keeping mission. Amaka on the other hand, used the baby and the money she lent me as a bait to lure me over. But i had refrained from sex with her using flimsy excuses as a getaway. My life seem to return to regular until one day.

Thomas invited me over for a little birthday party at his place. I refused to attend because of what happened the previous time, but he assured me that it was going to be a straight party. I took Ruth with me to the party as an assurance and my bulletproof.

The party got to its peak, everyone had a little too much to drink and the dancing floor was crazy. Thomas excused me from Ruth and took me to his bedroom. I sat on the bed wondering what he is got to say.

” Mike. Do you know what I have done for you? ”

I shook my head and kept my stare.

” I slept with an ugly old fool just to push the case away from you. The boy who saw you was a passer by. I shut him up with 500,000. Why am I doing all these? ”

I became aware of the hole I just entered. I was expecting this but not as blackmail. Still I kept quiet for him to hit the nail on the head.

” why? ” I asked.

” I love you Mike! ”

I was surprised that I wasn’t shocked to hear it. I also believed he was drunk as was everyone else, including myself, but the alcohol left me the minute he used the L word on me.

He started coming close to me and stood in front of me.

” Mike, I just can’t get you off my mind. Please help me, I don’t want to go nuts”

I stood up and went closer to the door and said.

” guy! I am as straight as a pole. It took all effort to handout with you irrespective of who you are. Please I beg you, don’t ruin it”

He looked at me as if I wasn’t understanding him then stood up and started walking towards me, while I moved closer to the door.

” Mike. Can’t you understand that I put out my neck because of you? I got involved because of you. I am an accomplice to murder because of you Mike. I can teach you how to be like me, it’s no harm, it’s a new way of life ” . He said drawing closer to me, while I opened the door and was half way out.

” Thomas! You are drunk. Let’s talk some other time ” I said and made to Leave.

” Mike! ” Thomas called.

I stopped and turned to him. He was furious looking.

” please don’t push me Mike! ” he said frowning.

” push you? How? ” I said stunned.

” dont make me do what I don’t want to do. What will it cost you to be my boyfriend? I love you, I don’t want to hurt you. But if you refuse…. “.

He suddenly stopped his speech halfway, then angrily walked pass me into the sitting room where the party was going down and Left me to stare behind him thinking of another trouble I just got into.

The next day I called Thomas, he wasn’t picking. I tried again and then he answered.

” hello Mike, have you thought of what we discussed? ” Thomas said.

” I actually called, to pay you back the 500,000 you paid the witness guy”

I said.

He suddenly hung up. I dialed his number again, he refused to pick up. Few minutes later I got a text message from Thomas.

” you better agree to my terms. I give you five days to make up your mind”.

I looked at the message over again, but couldn’t understand why Thomas would chose this part. One mind wanted me to go and confront him, but I knew the implementation. Another said something that got to me: ‘ our statements had been taken. He agreed to have left with me in his car, So therefore, whatsoever stone he throws up, will definitely land in front of him’. This gave me the confidence to call his threats bluff.

I was returning back from work on the sixth day when I noticed a police van in front of my house. I drew back and duck in a nearby bush. From my position I could see clearly the happenings in my house. Three armed police men stood at the gate looking observantly.

I drew back slowly, took another route to the road, board a commercial bike to Jacky’s house.

I called mum to know what was going on, she told me that someone called them and claimed he saw me kill the boy.

I explained everything to Jacky except that I know a thing about the boys death, and Thomas’s blackmail.

” is that why you’re hiding? The person should come and I. D you before anyone can arrest you. Just a phone call and you are afraid? ” he said smoking his weed.

Suddenly, a text rang on my phone. It was from Thomas: THIS IS A WARNING


My Madam And I-Episode68

I couldn’t make out a way around this, my head was full and couldn’t analyze any more information. So I looked at my friend who was busy smoking his life out and decided to let him in half way, perhaps he could use his discretion to my advantage.

” someone is blackmailing me”. I said.

He looked at me as though I was speaking gibberish. So I repeated what I earlier said.

” I heard you the first time ” Jacky said. ” what did you do? ” he looked suspiciously at me.

” we did something incriminating. Now he’s using it against me”

” You kill the boy you’re being accused of?” Thomas said rather than asking.

I looked at him and was astonished at the tone he used, as though he had figured out the truth. But I need not to let him in, so I denied it.

” Bro! What nonsense are you saying? That I killed someone? If I did I’ll tell you, you are not a stranger ”

” what is the condition of the blackmail? ” Jacky asked lacadaisically arranging the loose end of his weed with his saliva.

” he wants me to be his b!tch”

” like a gay thing? ” Jacky’s voice rose a little as he looked at me with seriousness.

” yeah Bro ”

To my surprise he exploded into an hysterical laughter. When he was done he took in smoke into his lungs, puffed it out and turned to me.

” bro! You got a guy after you plus the females! Where did you do the charm that is backfiring ” he said grinning.

” come on! Be serious! I am in a deep sh!t”

” Something tells me you are hiding something from me. But what’s my business. How do you want me to come in, since you consider me a guru”. He adjusted himself comfortably.

I reasoned what he said, but chose to ignore it.

” i don’t know what to do, am confused that’s why I am seeking your help” . I said.

” kill him ” he said abruptly.

I looked at him in dismay. He finished his smoke and dropped the leftover in the ashtray that was almost full.

” I don’t know what you mean by kill him ” I said gently.

” meant, take the life out of him, so that he will die and be buried, so that he’s chapter will be closed same as your problems ” he said changing the channel with a remote.

His eyes were bloodshot, he could barely open it properly only by half taking his head backwards could he see.

” are you capable of murder?! ” I asked.

He turned to me and gave me questioning look then said.

” how can you consider killing a man who wants to forcefully disvirgin another man’s anus murder? For me it’s a way to rid the society of miscreants. If you kill him, you are doing the world a great good”.

I knew this was the lamest advice ever. So I kept my plans to myself. I turned to him to ask of something but he was already snoring with his mouth open. So I called mum to inform her of where I was.

The next day I risked going to work from Jacky’s place. It was eventually a success. Sandra’s number wasn’t going through so I couldn’t tell her what was going on. Ruth on the other hand had been keeping in touch with me all through my sojourn.

Another day I went to work cautiously, always looking behind my shoulder. On my way back from work a text rang on my phone. It was from Thomas: YOU HAVE TWO DAYS LEFT. I read the message a second time, before I resolved to pay him an unfriendly visit.

I was in front Thomas’s house the evening of that day. There was a church nearby having an alnight, and the sound from the church monopolized all others. My heartbeat almost exploded from my chest as I looked around me to ensure no one was coming. The gate was locked and the fence was very high with barbed wire. I went round the house looking for how to enter, but all to no avail. Then I saw a place where Thomas’s fence met with a neighbors that was lower . I climed the neighbors fence which gave me access into Thomas’s. I covered the barbed wire with my shirt before placing my hands on the pillar edge of the fence and pulled myself carefully to the top, then carefully crossed the barbed wire. The floor seemed far away to the ground. I first removed my shirt before I held the pillar edge of the other side and slowly freed myself using my legs to descend down still holding the edge, then I freed my hands and landed quietly into the compound.

I tiptoed round the house looking for an access in. The whole house was litted, I had to stay out of sight. Every part of the house had burgulary proof, no access in. That was when it was dawn to me that my plans was not properly drafted.

I sat on a cemented pavement at the back of the house thinking of plan B, when suddenly I looked up and it occurred to me the ceiling was accessible .

I went to the kitchen side of the house. Waited for the church to begin their loud singing before I climed the burgulary protector up till I could touch the ceiling, then gave it a blow, it broke open . I slowly began widen it to give me access in. When it was wide enough, I held the wood inside and pulled myself in.

It was dark inside, I didn’t know which part of the house I was, but I was careful not to step on the ceiling as I maneuvered through the woods. I came to a spot . From the look of things I was in a bedroom. So held a wood and released myself with full force into the house. The ceiling made a loud noise and scattered everywhere and as I swung from the top, then realised my hand and landed in the sitting room.

It was dark in there and the whole floor was covered with broken ceiling. I hastily moved away from the spot to place my back on the wall beside the door that leads to the main house expecting someone to come in anytime soon.

After waiting for a while no one came out, I slowly opened the door, and moved into the house. First, I went to the room Thomas took me. I slowly turned the knob and the door opened, I peered into the room, the bed was empty. I went in and slowly opened the bathroom door as well, it was empty. So I left the room to another room, it was empty, then to the third room, still empty. I searched every part of the house, thomas was no where in the house. I went to check outside for his car, it was packed outside.

” where the hell is this guy? ” I muttered to myself.

I swept the spot the ceiling scattered. Packed it into a nylon and left it behind the kitchen door. I went to the fridge, took out a caned drink and frozen rice and chicken. Went to the microwave put it in while I sipped my caned beer. I Went to the sitting room, put on the TV and was watching a documentary. Few minutes later I went to check on my food, it was ready. I took it to the sitting room, ate, drank as I continued my documentary .

I called Phila to inform her that I won’t be coming to work the next day.i begged her to cover up for me. After that i relaxed and continued to consume the drinks in the fridge before I dozed off on the couch.

Mums call woke me up. She wanted to know about my where about. And after she was convinced by my lies of doing great, she hung up.

I looked outside it was already so bright. I stood up, went to the fridge, got myself a jog of milk and cookies. Went to the dinning, poured a full cup of milk and poured some of the cookies in a plate. Carried them to the sitting room, put on the TV, and tuned to kiddies channel. I drank and ate my cookies while giggling at the funny cartoon movie.

It was evening, I was already tired of staying at a place, so I went to Thomas’s bedroom, used his shower and came back to his waderope, out of curiosity I went through his stuff. I came across gay p--n, a lot of it. I tossed them aside and continued checking. Then I found a gun. ” who is this guy?” I thought to myself. I continued searching but found nothing else.

The gun was a loaded stainless 9mm automatic Beretta. I kept the gun aside and sat thinking of how to deal with thomas when he returns now I had a gun. I was in my brainstorming when I heard a sound at the gate. I rushed to check, it was Thomas and some two gay looking guys.

” wow! Things just got complicated”. I said whispered to myself.


My Madam And I-Episode69-70

My phone woke me up around 3am. I adjusted myself on the couch and reached for the it at a stool beside the chair. The caller was Thomas. I wanted to ignore it but on a second thought answered it.

” Mike! You broke into my house right?! ” Thomas sounded raged.

I felt my heart struggling to beat 5 times in a second. I jumped and sat up.

” what do you mean? ” . I managed to speak.

” what do I mean? Is that what you’re asking me? Mike, what is your blue T-shirt doing on my fence? ”

Just then I remembered that I forgot to pick up my shirt .

” what shirt? ” I denied.

” Mike, I dont have anything to say to you right now, you’ll surely hear from me soon… Lest I forget, I need back my gun you took”. He said and hung up before I could say another word.

” this is trouble” I muttered.

I stood up restlessly, and walked round the sitting room scratching my head as I kept muttering ” this is trouble” to myself. I tried to return the call but he refused to answer. So I sent him a text: THOMAS, I DONT KNOW WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT.

I couldn’t sleep throughout the night, I went to check for an alcohol in the fridge, but nothing was left. How I need one badly at this hour. I searched for Jacky’s weed beside the chair and couldn’t find it. I went to his room he was deep in sleep lying face down clad in his regular baggy boxers with his two legs hanging up. While his girl laid on her side clad in just pant and bra.

I quietly snuck to his waderope, searched the first step, couldn’t find anything , then the second and the last step on the floor, yet didn’t find anything . I tiptoed to the side the bed where Jacky laid and silently woke him up. He frowned and turned to me.

” what? ”

” please I need weed” I whispered.

” weed? By this time? ”

” please.. ”

” I don’t have weed, I have a stronger… ”

I interrupted ” please let me have it”

He looked at me as though I was nut, then said.

” check under the chair, it’s in a yellow nylon ” he said. Then held my hand as I hastened off ” dont finish it. And be careful, that sh!t is very strong “. He then let go and returned to his previous position.

I went to check under the chair and found it. I quietly untie and molded a full jumbo sized . Then lit it and took in a large smoke. I sat with my back on the backrest and rested my legs on a stool thinking of my next move and how to deal with Thomas while taking in a lot of smoke.

While I was busy sending smokes into my lungs, I imagined Jacky took my phone and called Thomas to inform him of what I did. Then suddenly started feeling Jacky couldn’t do a thing like that but his it was girlfriend. I made to stand up and confront him, on a second thought, I felt the weed was playing tricks on me. Then i sat back.

I heard footsteps rushing to the house, I quickly put off the lights and went to check through the window, but found nothing. I looked at the weed, feeling the it was really getting on me. So I put it off and went to put on the TV.

The display on the TV suddenly became blurred. I wiped my eyes with the back of my two palms, yet it was becoming really burred. I stood up, rushed to the bathroom. My intention was to pour a little water on my head, but ended up sitting under the shower for god knows how long. I must have dozed off or something. I quietly stood up and put off the shower but I was so drenched by then. I wanted to go to the sitting room to change into something comfy but realized I was carefully tiptoeing. I stopped, looked at my back and front to ensure no one was looking, then walked normally to the sitting room.

I turned on the fan to the highest, forgetting that I had extra clothes to change into. I took off all my clothes and was completely unclad and spread them on the chairs. Brought a CD plate pouch and was fanning them with it, still blowing them with my mouth.

There was a song playing on TV, It was the kind of song I detested on a normal day, but this day I danced with careless abandon waving my bleeping rod up and down.

” wow! I never knew this song is this cool! ” I screamed.

Then I decided to jump to fro the chair with the intention to build my thighs muscle. I suddenly realized that I was going nuts. I ran and hid myself behind the door, peeping to see if someone was coming. One mind told me to scream and call for help before my brain melts completely, I was about to obey when I cautioned myself, reassuring myself that it’s the weed playing tricks on me.

I then composed myself and sat back on the chair,i felt I was over doing it, anyone who sees me would think that I was going nut. So I started trying every position possible to look normal . Then I suddenly realized that I was Unclad.

” ooooooooooooh sh!t ! Ha! ” I screamed.

Then put on the back of my wet boxers in a hurry. I suddenly felt I was really going nuts, so I threw all the clothes off the chair. Laid on it facing down. Held my hands together and crossed my legs. I remained in the position that ignoring every word that came to me. Fighting the urge to do something silly till i dozed off.

” wake up”

Someone said, hitting me hard on my thigh. I then recognized the voice. It was Jacky’s.

” wake up! Look at these mess. What have you been doing all night? ” he asked looking angrily around the sitting room.

I stoop up half way and discovered the water poured everywhere mixed with spilled milk and sugar. My clothes littered around. One of the chairs upside down.

” what’s this?! ” Jacky asked frowning.

” am sorry Bro. That weed was too strong. It knocked me out ”

” but I told you earlier , didn’t I? Please tidy up this place ” he said, picking up the weed nylon and walked away.

I decided to go to Thomas’s house and confront him. I had called earlier to inform him of my intended visit.

I arrived his house around 5 pm. He was waiting for me in front of his gate.

” hey! ” I said, as I approached him.

” hey Mike. You finally decided to come ” he said expressionless.

” I came to yield ” I said with my head low.

He smiled, walked close to me, searched me thoroughly before asking me in. We got into his house, he offered me a sit and brought two glasses and a wine on a tray. Dropped it in front of me.

” so where’s my gun? ” he said taking a sit beside me.

I tuned to him and said angrily.

” why do you keep asking me about that?! I know nothing! ”

He looked at me suspiciously, nodded. Then went inside the house, came back few seconds later with my sleeve shirt. Tossed it on me and said.

” isn’t that yours? Isn’t that one of the clothe you wore during our travel? ”

I looked at it carefully, pretending not to have never seen it before in my life.

” that ink at the wrist was gotten during your work at the studio. I asked you about it and you said a crazy girl used a marker on you. Have you forgotten? If you have I haven’t ” he said walking towards the door.

I looked at him ready for action if he tries anything funny. Only for him to come back and sat beside me.

” Mike, I have got you at my finger tip. You either agree to my terms or suffer the consequences. ” he said touching my neck.

I moved a little away from him.

” you are an accomplist you know that?” I said.

He exploded in a very loud laughter. I looked at him surprised. When he was done he said.

” who’s going to believe you? I didn’t kill him, you did. The witness saw it all”

” but you were with me…. ”

” and so? ” he said abruptly. ” who’s going to believe your story? You went to ease yourself, I never knew that you murdered someone. I was there, what does it matter? ”

” is that your story? ” I asked

” yes. With the people I know, the inspector beside me, and with your little fight with the commissioners in public. Mike, you’re a goner !”

” you know it was a mistake, why are you doing this?” I asked almost in tears.

” because I want you. It’s simple. Agree to mine and you’ll be free. All I need to do is to bring back the witness and you’re gone”.

” the witness you planted right?” I asked.

He grinned and said.

” you’re getting smarter Mike ”

“do you know that the inspector you have been having sex with is a married man?”

” of course I know. He likes me, and he’s useful to me. So what’s your problem?” he said grinning.

” nothing” I said.

He made to come closer to me, I stood up and started heading towards the door.

” Mike! What are you doing?” he asked.

” am going home” I said without looking back.

I was out of his gate and on my way home. When I called Thomas.

” Mike what’s the meaning of what you just did ” he asked furiously.

” I came to get a voice recording from you. It’s my turn to turn the table. Your inspectors wife may get this message that depends on you, and if you force my hand am going to release this to the police, they’ll know how your inspector boyfriend has aided in our crime. We are all into it now ” I said and hung up.
