💋CHAPTER THREE💋
 
 
I stared at him, so did Loretta. Loretta didn’t get a view of the picture. Douglas laughed loudly before bending to face me.
“Where do you know the man from?” He frowned
“He’s my father” I said boldly.
Hahaha Hahaha, he laughed loudly “so you know Raymond?”
I ignored him.
“I need Raymond” Douglas said bringing out a cigarette from his jacket.
“Wait!” He lit the cigarette, “Did you say he’s your father”
I nodded, “yes”
“I saved a debtor, my debtor” He gave a wicked smile. “Paschal!!!!” He yelled.
“Yes boss” A young boy arrived almost immediately. Obviously he was Paschal.
“Paschal, take Lucy and the both of you must bring Raymond alive” He popped out smoke to my face.
Somehow I was happy because I was going to see my father again but again sad because I was wondering what this ruthless boss would do to him.
“Loretta, let me give you a second chance of going with them” Douglas said and walked out of the room.
Loretta pulled herself up and help me to get up. This time I was too weak to cry. I smiled at Paschal who took a small pistol and hid it in his Jacket pocket.
“Move” He yelled and we walked out of the room.
We parked in front of the hospital and Paschal wore a black hand glove.
“Loretta, you will go in with me through the back and you, Lucy, you will prevent the doctor or nurses from coming into the ward” He said and got off the car.
I composed myself and walked through the reception heading to my father’s ward.
“Lucy Raymond” someone called and I turned to see a nurse.
“How is my Dad” I rubbed my sweaty hands on my Jean.
“He woke up slightly after you left to get food” The nurse said and my heart missed a beat.
“All right, I should go see him” I sighed.
“Let me take you there” The nurse volunteered.
“That won’t be necessary” I smiled at her.
“Two turns to the left, ward 8” She directed and left.
I walked briskly according to her direction. My plan was to get my dad out of the ward before Paschal and Loretta got there. It was easier for me because I wouldn’t have to tip toe.
Here I was at Dad’s ward already. All I needed to do, was to swap him with someone else or possibly make his bed empty.
I got to the ward to discover that’s bed empty. Could it be Paschal succeeded in taking Dad away.
I walked out of the hospital to meet Loretta lacing her shoe at the gate entrance.
“Where’s my father” I gr0@ned
“We can’t find him” She raised her head and we headed to where Paschal parked the car.
“Did you see him?” Paschal asked facing me.
“No”, I shot him a stern look
The drive back to Boss Douglas house was peaceful. My thought had been where I would find my Dad. Presumably Paschal and Loretta thought would have to do with how Mr Douglas would scold them.
“I knew it, I knew he would abscond” Douglas yelled.
“I doubt if he was within the hospital vicinity” Paschal bowed his head.
“Shut up!!!, shut up….let me think” Douglas rumbled.
“Sorry boss” Paschal quickly apologised.
“Lucy, if I don’t get your father, you will forever be my slave” He said.
“Forever be his slave” This phrase kept ringing in my ears. Somehow, I preferred being his slave than to watch Dad being subjected to this man torture.
I got up from the ground and let out a grin. In Douglas house, there was a small room meant for gym. I went to the gym to see Paschal with a dumbbell
“How do you guys manage to cope with Douglas?” I said his name with disgust.
“Boss Douglas, you mean” Paschal rolled his eyes lifting up the dumb bell.
“Whatever” I sighed.
“Calling time, Boss Douglas wants to see everyone in the cartel” Loretta announced.
“I’ve gotta go” Paschal said wiping the balls of sweat on his face.
I got to the penthouse suite to meet every member of the cartel seated.
“Why are you late?” Douglas asked.
“I was trying to locate this place” I lied.
“First, I would want to welcome you to my world, The cartel has rules and I’m sure Paschal would tell you it rules” Douglas grinned.
“Whatever” I said in my mind.
“By 6am tomorrow, I would want five of you to go for a vital @ssignment.
The five are Paschal, Loretta, Shane, Davis and lastly Lucy. Shane and Loretta should be somewhere beside his compound, Davis you should be in charge of moving the car and Paschal, you are to hold the sniper rifle and for you Lucy always go with Paschal” Douglas concluded.
“Boss, what about the hurdles?” That was Paschal.
“The reason am s£nding Shane and Loretta along, should in case you fail the target, Shane should shoot at sight” Douglas said bringing out a map.
He showed us the different route to get our bait. Our bait was Mr Biden, the former s£nate President. I couldn’t believe I turned an @ss@ssin over night.
The scroching sun peeped through my curtain. I yawned loudly as I change my position on the bed. By now I was use to everyone’s name in the cartel. We were ten all together excluding Douglas, the boss.
“Ready” Davis asked
“Semi ready” I said jokingly wearing my black hoodie.
Recently, I suddenly got nerves. I had made a promise which I must fulfil. I got nerves again because when the time comes, I need to save my father.
“How about we try route two” I leaped into the car bringing out the map.
“Boss Douglas instructed we try route one” Paschal snapped and I ignored.
Two meters away from Mr Biden house, we all got down from the car leaving Davis alone in the car.
I followed Paschal while Shane and Loretta went another direction.
“Check it Lucy, Are they out” Paschal ask for the hundredth time.
“I still can’t see anytime” I said trying to climb an anthill
Just one step above the small building, I missed my step and fell to the ground.
“Be serious Lucy” Paschal giggled.
“I’m been serious” I said rubbing my butt.
“Seems like they are out” Paschal said sternly climbing the anti hill
Mr Biden standing right in the midst of his hurdles was targeted. Paschal positioned to his forehead.
“Lucy, I’m about to pull the trigger” He said still aiming his focus.
Right then, He pulled the trigger and Mr Biden fell on the floor.

FOUR✍️❣

Did I just watch some one being @ssinated in my pres£nce?. I swiped the hair blinding my eyes as we both got down from the Ant hill. Just as Mr Biden dropped down on the floor, there were sporadic shottings.
“Follow me, Lucy” Paschal yelled trying to avoid being hit by a bullet.
“What about Loretta and Shane” I asked walking behind him
“Shane called to say Davis is at Hallway”
“Hallway!” I screamed, “That’s too far from here”
“Shut up Lucy” Paschal glared. “The police are after us, just so you know” He hissed loudly.
Luckily, we were able to get to Hallway successfully. Paschal sat beside Davis while I sat in the back seat.
“Narrow escaped” Loretta sighed as soon as Paschal started the car.
“Thanks to Paschal, at least we won’t receive insults from boss Douglas” Shane smiled.
“I’m wondering how much we’ll get today” Davis said still driving.
“Let’s wait until we see him” Loretta gave a fake smirk.
The car came to an halt in Douglas mansion. The mansion I hate so much, I sneered coming out of the car.
We walked straight to the penthouse to meet Douglas eyes glued to the Tv.
The screen went blank and suddenly came up with the breaking news notification.
“Breaking news, former s£nate President Mr Biden has just been confirmed dead after been shot by suspected unknown @ss@ssin”
“Good….yes” Mr Douglas was excited.
“Boss” Paschal called trying to make him notice our pres£nce.
“Ohh, thanks….A hundred thousand for each of you” He said turning off the tv.
We all let out a sigh. I mean how could he be so mean. After the life taking experience, he got nerves to say hundred thousand. I was expecting a million naria at least.
“Douglas, are you this heartless” I said angrily. “You mean we had to take those risk for a hundred thousand, what if the police had caught us, what if we died in the process” I kept yelling
All these while, everyone including Douglas kept calm and was listening to me.
“It would have been better you died” He said rudely turning away his face from me.
“Douglas, I promise you won’t get away from with this” I was about to walk out of the penthouse when he pulled me back by my hair.
“The earlier you understand that you owe me for the rest of your entire life the better” He stammered still pulling my hair.
“You’re hurting me Douglas” I said trying to prevent tears from falling.
“Lucy Raymond, Don’t you ever dare talk back at me” He pushed me violently making me crash on the floor.
I blinked my eyes continuously to prevent tears from falling. In a moment, Douglas was gone. I was still sitting on the floor when Loretta and Shane approached me.
“You shouldn’t have talk to him that way” Loretta said helping me to get up.
“Sorry Lucy” Shane added.
We got to the room. Members of the cartel used only two rooms. Five to one and five to the other. There were other rooms in Douglas mansion but they were used mainly for storing weapons.
Shane, Davis, Maxwell, Gold and myself stayed in one room. Loretta had followed me to my room.
“I won’t cry, my dad led me to this” I sat on the bed.
“We have gone through worst than you have done” Shane said gazing into thin space.
“Lucy, you have to rest” Loretta said heading towards the door. “I’ll see you some other time”.
“I could remember six years ago, when I came here” Shane sighed. “I had run to Mr Douglas when a few were after my life. My dad was a friend to late Mr Biden.
Trouble started when my dad broke the contract. Mr Biden wanted him dead and since they couldn’t get him they came after me. In my search of safety, I ran into Boss Douglas who hid me” He wiped the tears of his face.
“So what happened next?” I stared at him pathetically
“Mr Biden killed my father, my father was murdered, so I heard” Tears flowed freely down his cheeks. “I’m happy the cartel succeeded in killing Mr Biden”
“How sure how are you that it was Mr Biden who killed your Father ?” I asked.
“Boss Douglas told me so” He snapped angrily. “It hasn’t been easy striving through the cartel but one thing is sure” He paused and took a long breath.
“What’s that”
“Revenge and not even Douglas would be left out” He mumbled.
That was the spirit, I loved that spirit.
“What are the things you know about the cartel” I asked
“Paschal should be in the best position to tell you, he’s next after Douglas” He grinned.
“Paschal!!!” I repeated his name.
“The boss is mean, ruthless. He doesn’t like when anyone disobeys him, he beats them up mercilessly. And when we fail on any @ssignment, He starves us until he feels like changing his mind. He sleep with every female in the cartel. Also in the cartel, we aren’t permitted to develop feelings, I mean love feelings”
“For how long does this last or is this going to last?” I asked
“For me, I was asked to serve for 21years but since I joined the cartel, only one person has been able to live the cartel after completing his serving term” He smiled lightly.
“So where’s he?” I asked
“It’s a girl, a strong girl. She was quick at challenging Douglas, but unfortunately she died” Shane said pitifully
“What!, how?”
“Boss Douglas said she died in a car accident” Shane replied
“You don’t believe that, do you” I eyed him suspiciously.
“No, I don’t” He nodded. “He once threatened to kill her”.
Shane glanced at the small clock hung on the wall. The time was exactly 2pm.
“It’s time for gym” Shane said bringing out his Snickers from his closest.
“I’m not interested in gym” I rolled my eyes lying on the bed.
“I’ll join you by 6pm” He tapped my wrist.
I laid on the bed thinking of how best I would get everyone out of the bondage. I needed Paschal, but the Paschal I know would rather die than to betray Boss Douglas. My phone rang bringing me out of my thoughts.
I checked the phone screen only to discover an unknown caller. I pressed the green icon and waited for the caller to talk.
“Lucy!” I recognised Dad’s voice.
Just then, the door opened and I ended the call in a swift.
“Who were you talking to?” Douglas shot me a stern look
“Huh” I scratched my itching eyes
” who was that” Douglas yelled in anger.
“Oh, my late mom” I smiled
