She stood before them, looking at the small box.
The man spoke
“Is licensed madam…is not doubled barreled, is just a normal one for armatures… just as you requested, no harm if you can handle it, here is it if you have the mind to handle it with care, is not loaded yet. We have already taught you how to load it and use when the needs arises, you have to be extra careful so that you don’t turn it on your self…but madam…you can change your mind and there won’t be any problem at all…
“No…give it to me, and thank you for your service. You can leave now.
The man drove off with the other two and Olivia went back to her car and made a called
“Hello Inspector…good day sir…do you get my message?
“Barrister Olivia, how are you doing over there, i was informed by my men about your request…how many men do you need and they will be sent to you right away…and what exactly is the situation on ground, I couldn’t get the full details from my men, they told me is a criminal offence, consisting of different crimes that was overlaid for years…and you are taking up the case to handle in court, I trust whatever judgement you dares fits…I’m strongly
“Thank you inspector, I appreciate all your good work and joining hands with me to bring justice for the deserted…you are doing a good job and your rank of truth will keep going higher….as for the men, I won’t be needing them any more…let me handle this myself…going with your men may complicate things…so I will handle this in my own way…and if there’s any changes I will definitely let you know…I will give you feed back on how it goes but I’m sure that self defense is not murder sir…that was why I requested to deal directly with you on this case…thank you once again Inspector…
“Police is your friend…anytime and any day, try and be careful out there…and if you eventually change your mind don’t fail to let us know…in truth… self defense is not murder Barrister and that is more reason you need the police for your defense at all time so that you won’t take laws into your own hands…but I respect your wish…your wish is my command…be good…you can always reach me anytime you need me…
Olivia later ended the call, she looked at the small box which was sitting carefully in the passenger sit, and she removed it from there and placed it under her seat before she zoomed off.
Olivia was already running late, as she entered the express her phone was ringing, Kane was calling she end the call continuously as he calls, different number
Her phone rang again and she looked at the caller it was from Doctor Kate, Olivia ended the call again without picking but doctor Kate kept calling and later doctor Mark also started calling, she ignored it and kept driving with speed, she decided to switch off her phone but another call came in and it was doctor Kate calling again, Olivia decided to slow down her speed, she parked her car and answered the call.
“Hello doctor Kate…
“Olivia…oh my God…what is happening, I have being trying to call you since and even asked doctor Mark to try and reach you too…what I’m I hearing…I spoke with Helen not long ago, she called me asking me to reach you immediately before you hurt yourself… she told me everything and I’m still in shock…why didn’t you tell me…you kept it away from me all this while…Olivia, so Kane was Kaka…oh my God, why didn’t you tell me when you found out…and today was suppose to be your wedding…what are you planning? Please, before you make any rational decision tell me where you are… please where are you Olivia…I need to see you…I know you are hurt…we are worried about you…Mark is here with me and he is also worried sick…I know you are hurting but please forgive him and let loose of whatever plans you have for him…don’t do it…Helen told me what you intend to do to him and she couldn’t talk you out of it…she is hoping I will succeed with you….I know how much hate you have held all this years for Kaka not knowing he was close to your skin…I understand is accvmulated hate but please forgive him….
“forgive him…forgive him, like seriously….doctor Kate, that was more reason why I refused to take your calls because I know this will be your normal preaching…forgiveness…you don’t understand and I don’t expect anybody to understand anything right now…my mind is made up and I will handle this the way I want to…please stop worrying…I will be alright…but is either he goes or I go…one of us must leave this earth for the other because I can’t stand living in the same planet with Kaka, I have swore it and my words stand doctor…forgiveness is more reason many evil souls are rooming around this world, committing more crime, unleashing terror on the innocent, because they know they will be forgiven anyway. I could have think in the line of forgiveness if Kaka had come to me all this years and tell me the truth, the truth of being behind my parents death, the truth about everything Doctor Kate…if he was remorseful about it and I finally find the courage to let go…or I would have just get him arrested for him to face the justice that he escaped from and move on with my daughter…but Kaka knew all this while and made me to believe that he was Kane….i have thought this through and nothing will change my mind…I would have gone after his father and watch Kaka bleed like I bleed but the man is retired and very old and my battle is not with the old man but with Kaka…Kaka has money and connection…well, the money can’t save him now, not anymore, I have connection…more than he can imagine…so I’m all set for this…I’m sorry doctor Kate…I have always listened to you in everything…but I won’t on this…I’m still bleeding…I hurt so deeply…more than you can imagined…just knowing my worst enemy…the man I have hated with passion and killed several times already in my mind was staring right at my face all this years…he bought freedom with money and also thinks he can buy my forgiveness with money…to hell with his money…I will be his worst night mare…and he will not escape it doctor…I don’t care what it will cause me…I have sold out Olivem…and that was my starting line…if I let it all go…Kaka will think it was his money that work as usual, he will think he bought me over like he has being doing, escaping everything because he believes his money gives him power…I won’t let this go, he can’t afford my forgiveness…is too expensive for him…this time his money won’t save him…please not now doctor…don’t preach to me…because at the end of everything is either him or me…period.
Olivia ended the call, switched off her phone and entered the express again before zooming off.
She has already sent some men to pay the securities at Kane’s gate off, to leave for one week and she has gotten the information that they have left. No obstruction.
Somebody was waiting for her along the express, she picked up the person and when she drove down to Kane’s place she handed her car keys to the man and ask him to drive off with it to an unknown place where her car won’t be easily seen and the man drove off.
Olivia raised her wedding gown as she walked into the gate. She has her own keys to the house so she unlock the house and entered inside.
Kane and every one else got tired from waiting for Olivia, some people even stepped outside talking in a whisper, the media was already taking pictures and recording the event. Kane was breathing hard as his men tries to calm him down. time has gone and people where gradually leaving in shame.
Kane was more ashamed as people looked at him in pity, the media was capturing the moment and he almost fought with one of the coverage men, he broke a camera of another photographer who took picture of him continuously.
His bride has deserted him, Olivia never showed up at the wedding, Kane’s frustration grew as he couldn’t understand why Olivia would do this to him, he has sent people to search for her and even check her in her place and anywhere possible but they all returned back without any positive news.
Kane went inside the dressing room and asked everybody to keep off.
He punch hard on the wall and stamp his feet in anger “what if she was kidnapped, involve in an accident, fell sick or something else happened to her…what if….
Kane couldn’t think straight, He sat on the ground and held his head. This was a great shame to his personality, he will be in the news for the wrong reasons, he has never in his life expected this to happen, Olivia’s phone was switched off, Kane has tried calling Helen earlier and it rang before she also switched off her phone.
Something wasn’t right. Olivia has nailed him to the wall, how could she do such and what happened to her.
People who came for the wedding saw things as it unfold, they quietly lined up at the food side, collecting food and drink, and some sat to eat and enjoy their selves.
A woman well dressed gossiped with another woman as they eat their food at one corner quietly.
“ Fredi, Fredi…haaa…the bride did not show up again…ewoo…things are happening oo…like play the groom has entered news with this o…news people have carried his story and by morning almost everybody will hear, social media, Instagram, Facebook, twitter and news agencies will carry this interesting story…do you see how angry the groom was…he fought with those photographers…if not for his friends holding him he would have done more…his father is a senator…but retired…the groom has money…he opened one big supermarket for his wife to be…the bride has a daughter, her parents were both killed by some gun men many years ago…how terrible…poor child, she was also raped and later had her daughter before she met the young man, the lady is a barrister now…oh you don’t know…now you know…
“Ewoooo, Cordi…you don’t meant it…things are happening oo, aah what a poor child…I don’t know oo until now you are telling me…I only hard they have being together for long because the girl was in school…why will she abandoned her husband to be in the alter like that, the young man have locked himself in the priest dressing room and warned everybody to keep off…even his friends…me I only know a little about the lady and the man…but I never knew about the bride parents…how do you even know more than me Cordi…who told you all of this…
“Me, do you know who I am…hmmm… I know many things Fredi…any old or latest news even if is being whispered inside an ant hole…I will still hear it…indeed things are happening like this one that just happened…is a big disgrace oo but it won’t matter much because there is enough food to eat and take away…this food is very sweet…they may refix the wedding again and we will come and eat, drink and gather gist for those who couldn’t make it down…
Kane later left as night approach, all the people who came for the wedding were all gone except for Wilson who waited for him.
They first drove to check Olivia at her place but nobody was around, even his daughter and the nanny wasn’t home, another drive to Helen’s place but nobody was also around there. Kane drove out again to Olivem supermarket but he got the shock of his life, as he was told that Olivem has being sold to another.
Kane did not believe the story, he left immediately. He knew it can’t be possible because Olivia can not just sell such a huge asset without his knowledge. Kane believed that something wasn’t right.
He drove back home with Wilson that night, his two security that was suppose to be on duty were all gone, nobody on the duty post or in the house even his house keepers. His body was shaking in anger, he try to understand what was really happening but he couldn’t think of any thing.
The first shock was Olivia not turning up for the wedding, the second was finding out that Olivem has being sold to another, he did not believe the last story about selling Olivem because the big sign post of the supermarket was still there, the name is still there, everything is still the same even the staffs, so it can’t be true and Olivia can not do such a thing without informing him.
Now his worries was “where is Olivia and my daughter” what happened to her…what is going on? He try to answer this question but couldn’t.
Wilson spoke to Kane
“Calm down…just calm down…and let’s hope she is alright…something has being going through my mind…do you think she knows…I mean she knows that you are Kaka…?
“what kind of stupid thing are you even saying with your mouth…how can she know…is not possible for her to know like that except you went behind me again to tell her that I’m Kaka…
“I can never do such thing to you…I never told her anything or sat with her again to talk after that first day…I was only wondering in my mind…what if she knows and played cool…she is a very intelligent person and she read law…you could have told her Kane…even before the wedding…I still stand on this…is she doesn’t know now and found out after the wedding that you are Kaka do you think she will forgive you…it will hurt her and is…
“Wilson just keep shut…I don’t need all this right now…my head is already full…I have asked you before… how do you want me to put my mouth and tell her…how do you really want me to say it…that we killed her parents…I was an arm robber, I raped her…i escaped being punished because money speaker louder in our society…and I have known all this while who she was for years now but try to cover for the past…by giving her all I took from her…everything money can buy…I bought it for her but her parents are dead and I can’t bring them to life with money…and finally I will say…I am sorry Olivia …please forgive me for the sake of Emerald our daughter and forgive me because i Made your dreams to come true…jeezzzz…that is the worst confession I have ever hard…I don’t have such courage Wilson…I can’t tell her all that and she must not find out…maybe I will find the courage to do it someday but not today and not tomorrow…I need to find her first…that is my main problem now…please…don’t add to my trouble…by tomorrow the media will carry my picture and name to the public that is if they have not started already…they even captured the moment I was fighting those fools called camera men….my fear is where is Olivia and my daughter…what happened…maybe I should call the police to start a search for them…no, I don’t want to involve the police yet…what is happening to me…who did I offend…why must this embarrassing thing happened to me…why me, how could Olivia do this to me…oh my God ….i…I just want to stay alone…please leave Wilson…I will keep trying her number until I’m able to reach her…leave…I don’t want to see anybody right now…I want to think…all this is just too much…
Wilson later left, Kane kept pacing up and down, he will punch the wall so hard and scream so loud in frustration.
Olivia listened from where she was, she has planted a recording camera which she was listening to everything that Kane and Wilson was saying.
Olivia was upstairs, in one of the rooms in Kane’s house still in her wedding gown.
“Is time for the main wedding to begin” Olivia said to herself as she opened the small box.
Olivia opened the door quietly and stepped out, she stood at the top of the staircase and look down at Kane as he went on talking to himself, pacing up and down with his phone in hand.
Olivia turned on her phone and started going down, her phone was in her left hand while her right was occupied with a short gun, a long twisted rope was hanging down from her neck
Kane was surprised as Olivia’s phone rang and it was just within the house.
He followed the sound and saw Olivia in a wedding gown standing on the stairs
Kane opened his mouth in shock as he saw the gun in her hand.
Olivia smile at him as she steps down in style
“Kaka…Kaka…my long dreaded enemy…here comes your bride…I have looked forward to this day thinking it will never come, and finally here we are… I’m your bride Mr kaka and I’m here to lead you to your death… the death you escaped from all this years.. and after murdering you several times in my mind and watch you die over and over… now I will finally bring it to past in reality. This will be happening physically not in my dreams or mind anymore…today is our wedding day… the day you will get to join those you have killed…are you scared… shocked…oh sweetheart don’t be… you should be smiling because your bride is here… I’m here for you.. kaka the kaka… hahaha…
Kane’s phone fell off from his hand as Olivia approach, he started moving towards the door not knowing what to do or say, his legs shakes as Olivia got close and closer.
He stammered but nothing reasonable came out he wondered in fear how long Olivia has known him to be Kaka yet she played cool
“Olivia… please…Olivia… please… I’m sorry… please don’t do this…please… drop the gun in your hand let’s talk… please keep that thing away is dangerous… give me a chance to explain… keep the gun away Olivia… let me explain…
“A chance to explain what exactly… why you killed my loving father and innocent mother…you unleashed darkness”>darkness to my loving home and scale through without punishment.. Kaka, you had all the chance for years to explain to me why you killed my parents… you had all the chance to explain why you rendered me and many others heartbroken… you had all the chance Kaka to face judgement for all your terrible crimes but yet you took all this chance for granted… and a day like this has come for you to face the judgement seat… today is our wedding day… I’m your bride of death… and I will join you together with the otherworld… the bullet inside this gun is our wedding ring…but first I will release one bullet after the other… there are four in here…one to your testicles which you forcefully used to raped me… another to your heart where the evil was formed, then one to your hand which you used to strike me then the last is to your head…I will Watch your brain scatter everywhere… first thing first… take this rope and tire round yourself…righ
t now…I also have tape to tape up your mouth if you dares make a noise…
Olivia threw the rope at Kane who stepped away from it and rushed to the door to escape, Olivia shoot at the door and the bullet flew out through the window, it shattered the window glasses, Kane fell back in shock on seeing that Olivia is determined to kill him.
Olivia ordered him to crawl back with his knees, pick up the rope and tire up himself
Kane obeyed and crawl back, he did everything Olivia asked of him obediently.
Olivia switched off his phone and also her own and threw it off
Olivia checked to make sure the rope around Kane was tight enough before going back to relax on the cushion and face Kane.
“I just wasted one bullet… you thought this is a joke right? any other mistake from you and I will release all the bullet to your skull…bastard….You had everything kaka… what exactly was your reason for destroying the poor… what is your reason for unleashing terror on the innocent…I will kill you and nothing will happen… you know why because I’m also rich, I’m a barrister…I have the ear of this present government.. after killing you kaka…i will get away after few judgement and I will live my life as nothing happened…my conscience will be at peace, well justified because I did to you what you first did to others. Have you hard the latest gist in town aside your wedding gist…well, I sold OLIVEM… I’m a multi millionaire… I’m rich just like your father… because your father was weathy and you think you can get away with anything… never again Kaka…never… you prepared me for this day… and i’m well prepared for you…give me reason why I shouldn’t kill you right away…but that must include bringing my parents back to life because that’s the only way you will escape this… Kaka the notorious killer… today is your judgement day… you will taste what real pain feels like…our wedding Just began… kaka.. my worst enemy… caught in his own web..
“Olivia please…I’m not kaka, I’m Kane…i know I use to be notorious…I did things I still regret… I’m not proud of my past…is very terrible and i can’t understand why i did what I did… Olivia please forgive me…I never imagined it will get to this…I could have confessed before now but I was scared…I was so scared…I didn’t want to loose you and I didn’t even know how to present it to you… please… I’m pleading… not because I’m scared of dying but because I understand your pain… don’t go this way of hate because of me… I’m not what I used to be…my conscience Judge me everyday…far more than any kind of physical judgement.. I never meant for your parents to die, I…I accepted my sin of killing them unknowingly… because if I haven’t… went over you when you appeared… they might still be alive…if money could have bring them to life I’m sure they will be alive by now because I was determined to give you all that… I took from you, love, happiness, dreams come true, fulfilment and family… saying sorry is never enough to show how I have felt all this years, I was being eaten up by guilt everyday of my life yet…I couldn’t face my fear…I try to cover it. It wasn’t my intention to destroy your home Olivia…me and Wilson were running from the police and decided to take a shelter and we found ourselves in your house and the moment you appeared I felt all hot…I quickly forgot the reason why we were there and bounce on you… and when your father tries to save you by taking my gun to shoot me, Wilson saved me instead and shot him before he could… but I…I never wanted to kill anybody or to hurt you…I had enough to smoke and drink that evening before our mission and that affected everything I did that night…my eyes was cleared after the deed was done… I’m sorry Olivia… I’m deeply sorry… please forgive me for the sake of Emerald, for the sake of our sweet journey together… for God’s sake most especially… please…I love you so much…I lov…
Olivia rushed to him and slapped him twice, she kicked him so hard, she used a stool and stone him and Kane started bleeding, she continued to hit him until she was tired, she removed the wedding gown she was wearing and set it on fire close to Kane so that he will feel the heat of the fire
Kane’s hands and legs were tired and he couldn’t do anything, he Just sat in a silent sob
Olivia wore a black Jean trouser and a black top under the wedding gown.
She faced Kane again.
“If you ever repeat the word “love” then your death will come quicker.. you love me, do you know what love is.. you bastard…I loved my parents…you and Wilson killed them both in a cold blood, I almost died that night but I was destined to reopen your case someday… and the reason why I’m not after Wilson because he went to prison and faced his punishment while you went to abroad… to avoid being punished but today I bring judgement home to you…you will face it…if you escaped from everything… you can’t escape from my claws…in my dictionary there’s no forgiveness for someone like you… I could have handed you over to the police but your money may not allow them to give you a well befitting punishment…I don’t want to waste time with your case in court…so I brought it home to you kaka. The night is long…so is Just me and you in this big house
Kane remained quiet, his whole body hurt, he was bleeding from his head and other parts of his body… the wedding gown fire burns out as he tries to move his body away from the fire, he looked up at Olivia and saw that she was another person entirely as anger consumed her every breath, she was so determined to kill him slowly until he dies, but he noticed Olivia was finding it difficult to complete her task of shooting him.
Kane couldn’t think of what to do, Olivia moved closer to him, she raised the gun and pointed it directedly at him, her hands were shaking, she lowered the gun, again breathed deeply and before pointing it again at him.
Kane saw opportunity to save himself he quickly used his legs and swept Olivia off from the ground
Olivia fell with a heavy thud to the ground and screamed in pain, the gun slipped out of her hand and fell faraway.
Kane, who’s hand and legs were tired roll on the floor to grabbed the gun with his legs.
Olivia sustained injury on her head from the heavy fall, she rushed to the gun but
Kane kicked her hard with his legs again and she fell on the television sets which shattered into her body, and the sharp objects cut deeply into her skin, Olivia released a heavy cry.
Kane kept on trying to untied himself to be able to pick up the gun.
Before Olivia could get up from the ground Kane has succeeded to untied himself, he loosened from the rope and rushed to the gun.
He picked up the gun and went to Olivia who’s face was covered in her own blood.
He bent over her on seeing her deep wound which blood flows out from
“Olivia… I’… I’m sorry…I didn’t mean to hurt you this way…I just did not want you to do what you planned to do… please get up…oh my God… you need a quick medical attention… Where’s my phone… oh my God…
Kane cried silently as tears clouded his eyes, he lifted Olivia who acted as if she has fainted and couldn’t stand on her own,
Kane searched around for his phone so that he can call an ambulance, he didn’t see his phone he returned back to Olivia and tried to wake her, he put the gun in his pocket as he cleaned up the blood on Olivia’s face
he bent to kiss her lips while holding her in his arm.
Olivia bite his lips so hard, kicked him in his stomach before grabbing the gun from Kane’s pocket.
She felt weak as she quickly stood staggered back and pointed the gun at Kane who was bleeding from his lips.
Kane raised his two hands up in a surrender as he stood and approach Olivia begging her not to shoot him.
Olivia ordered him to get down on his knees, he hesitated while still pleading and Olivia fired the bullet.
Kane fell back in scream as the bullet hit his right knee.
He fell down and pretend to be dead so that Olivia will not shoot him again.
He lied still on the ground without shaking and held his breath as he silently pray that Olivia will not shoot again.
Olivia’s hand was shaking as she continued to point the gun at Kane.
When She saw that he did not move, Olivia quickly dropped the gun and moved closer as she placed her ear to his chest, checking his heart beat.
Kane opened his eyes a little to look at her and quickly shut his eyes again as Olivia got up from him.
when Olivia did not hear any sound she began to shake as she went in search of her phone.
She was bleeding again and her head was pounding seriously, she has loosed alot of blood.
Olivia felt so weak but try to remain steady, she felt faint as her eyes began to cloud up.
she switched on her phone.
The first doctor’s name she saw was Mark, she quickly dailed his number.
Mark who has being trying Olivia’s number quickly picked up his phone as Olivia call came in
She was crying and sounded in a hurry as she asked him to get an ambulance immediately down to a certain address, there was an emergency, she urged him to hurry.
Without wasting time mark got everything ready and left immediately with the ambulance team.
They got to the house and rushed in to man lying on the floor.
Kane was happy and relieved to hear the ambulance sound.
He was quickly placed into a rolling bed, an oxygen was placed in his nose and mouth before he was wheeled out into the ambulance van and yet he still did not open his eyes as his knees were hurting him so deeply.
Kane hard Olivia sitting and crying earlier before the ambulance came.
He knew she needs treatment quick or she may pass out and he was glad that the ambulance team responded quick after she called.
Mark rushed to Olivia covered her with a blanket and drew her into his arms.
He couldn’t keep his own heart beat steady on seeing all the mess on Olivia’s body.
Olivia was muttering something mark bent his ear to her mouth.
“I killed him… oh my God…I killed him..I was so angry and I shot him dead…
Mark whispered back into her ears.
“I’m not sure you killed him…he is alive but has serious injury… he is not dead… Olivia you needs help, you look dry… wasted lots of blood… I’m concerned about you… stop speaking for now… you will exhaust the little strength left in you…shhhhh… please don’t say anything…
He lifted her into his arms and carried her to the ambulance. Olivia kept whispering.
“I killed him…he wasn’t breathing… Kane is dead…I killed him…I…I…
She went quiet and later passed out in doctor Mark’s arm
Another oxygen was placed in her nose before the medical team drove off with speed to the hospital.
To be continued
