House Of Secrets🏘️
He wondered who was trying to kill him, had Helen found out
about his affair with Rose? But he quickly dismissed the thought,
Helen had acted very fine, she was happy, even the way she
spoke with her husband while he drove them showed nothing
had changed about her, or had her husband been the one?
‘You’re late’ the blogger spoke without looking up as Nelson
neared his table. Nelson had finally decided to meet with him, an
he suggested a hidden venue for the meeting.
‘Tell me what I want to hear and be quick’ Nelson pulled a chair
backwards and slid in.
‘Oh, don’t be too fast, we have a lot to talk about’ Kachi lit a
‘What do you want from me? Why can’t you face your stupid
blog and leave me the hell alone’ Nelson scowled.
‘Uhhmmm, remember I have your secret, so you should mind
the way you talk to me’ Kachi pointed his index finger in warning.
‘Why are you doing this? No one would believe you, so whateve
game you’re on is not going to work, just stop it right
‘You’re sleeping with your boss’ wife, it’s been going on for years
I know this for sure and I have proof, if you’re willing to work
with me, I promise not to expose you, but if you fail, I shall leak a
videos of your love making and don’t ask me how I got them’
Kachi smiled satisfactorily as he saw the fear on Nelson’s face.
‘How did you know this’? Nelson’s heart pounded against his
‘That’s because I am a blogger, we love to buy and sell
information’ Kachi replied.
‘So tell me about the person trying to kill me, maybe after that I’d
consider working with you’ Nelson said.
‘You really think you have an option do you? Now look at these’
Kachi handed him an envelope.
‘What’s inside’? Nelson was afraid to open it.
‘Go on, open it’ Kachi said.
‘Shtt! What’s all these? Why do you want to ruin my life’? Nelson
shivered as he watched the pictures of Helen and himself kissing
‘Now sit still and listen to every word I say, I promise not to
expose you if you obey my every word’ Kachi ordered.
‘Just tell me what you want’ it dawned on Nelson that he had no
choice but to comply.
‘I need you to spy for me, I need information about the
Kachi Romeo had relocated to the city of Calabar many years
back, he’d beed drawn to Pastor Ita’s ministry and even had a
crush on his daughter but Rose rebuffed him strongly, he’d taken
it in good faith knowing a girl from such a high class could never
settle for him but he never knew the real reason behind her
‘There was a maid working for the Ita’s, I have not seen or heard
from her for months now, she worked very closely with me and
I paid her handsomely for it, but she just vanished, her phones
are not reachable and I have a strong feeling something bad
happened to her in that house’ Kachi added.
He’d picked interest in a certain young girl in church, she was
meek and good humored, he later found out she was the Pastor’
maid, that got him more interested in the friendship, he still
yearned for Rose’s attention and he begged her to put in a good
word for him, that was when the curtains fell apart.
‘You can never have her, please forget about her and find
someone else’ Grace’s mood had quickly changed at the mention
‘Why? Does she have someone’? he asked.
‘No, not that, it’s just that, she’s…I’m sorry we should not talk
about my employer’s daughter’ Grace evaded the subject.
Her behavior that day had triggered his curiosity, he pressured
her till she began to open up about the Ita’s.
He couldn’t believe it, that a father would sleep with his own
daughter, it disgusted him more than anything else, but they had
no proof. Grace had planned to take pictures of the evil pastor an
his daughter but she never showed up again.
‘Grace? So it was Grace that was your snitch? Oh my God, I’m
doomed’ Nelson rose to his feet.
If Grace was truly Romeo’s snitch, it meant they had S£x videos
of himself and Helen, if they were to be released, the scandal
would be enormous.
‘Yes, and I paid her more than her employers ever did, the Ita
family are a bunch of fakers just like most families of our religiou
leaders, I intend to make a big story out of everything, you’ll be
rich if you work with me, all I need is your co-operation’ Kachi
‘What do you want me to do’? Nelson exhaled, he was a trapped
animal and he needed to find escape by all means possible.
‘Are you aware the Pastor Is having an affair’? Kachi raised his
‘Not really except for the photoshopped pictures you sent to me
last weekend of him and some girl kissing’ Nelson replied. What
was he getting at?
‘What makes you think the picture was photoshopped? You see
the problem with Nigerians is this, you’re all too gullible, you see
these men of God as actual gods and in fallible, all perfect and
invincible but you’re all wrong’ Kachi reached out for his phone.
‘Well, I don’t know if he’s faithful or not, what does that have to
do with me’? Nelson frowned.
‘He’s having an affair with Rose’ Kachi paused and watched his
‘Rose? Who’s Rose’? Nelson wondered.
‘His daughter’ Kachi replied and Nelson burst out laughing.
‘It’s okay, I didn’t believe it too but it’s real, Grace never lied to me
Kachi was slightly pissed by his laughter.
‘You’re a good comedian, why don’t you change jobs? Seriously,
you mean the pastor is Bleeping his own daughter? And his
sneaky wife don’t know about it? Come on man, stop being
paranoid’ Nelson rose to his feet, obviously the blogger had
nothing else important to say.
‘Sit down Nelson, we aren’t finished’ he drawled.
‘Sorry Kachi or Romeo or whatever you call yourself, I would no
be part of this stupid game, as for the pictures, you’re free to
release them, what do I care? But I think you are a coward, you
would’ve released them if you really want to’ Nelson replied and
swirled round, ready to walk away.
‘You never asked about your enemy’ Kachi’s eyes gleamed
‘Who is my enemy’? Nelson quickly turned round.
‘The woman you’re sleeping with
