Chapter 17

Scar looked at his boys. He glanced at them

for some time without saying a word.

“Boss ” one of them spoke up.

“We have never seen you like this, this is

really getting to you. Just say the word and

we will do whatever you want to avenge

your woman`s loss”

” yeah” the other guy added.

” lets go and destroy Chile alre-ady. we have

the guys and we can hire others if nee-d be.”

Jo who was seated opposite Scar spoke up


“we all saw what happened this morning on

the news and am sorry to tell you guys that

we have some more bad news for all of us.”

He started.

“That business man we robbe-d the gen sets

and Jeep has teamed up with Chile. we don`t

know how but he`s in kabwe and right as

we speak he`s funding Chile. he wants us all


” what? ” all the guys in the room asked as

everyone shook their heads and all this time

Scar was quite.

“what now? Are we going to sit and wait

for them to come get us” They all looked at


He cleared his throat..

“you know what guys? i have never asked

anything rather than loyalty and none of you

has ever disappointed me. Now listen to me.

we all knew that our lives were not so much

as-sured in this job, we all signed in knowing

the danger involved. I know some of you

have families and people to take care of,

that`s why i will not ask any of you to put

your lives on the line for me anymore.

You all have a choice, either to be with me

on this or not. I will not f0rç£ anyone to be

on this war.

what is coming is big and very personal, its

probably going to change all our lives. so

decide now. Before we start anything” he

sighed closely staring at them all.

It was quite for a while and then Ken spoke


“boss” he said.

“. you are right we have always done what

you said and all of us are loyal to you and i

for one is not leaving you alone to face this

war. we worked and fought ha-rd to be

were we now and i will fight with you till

the end. Thanks to you my family has a

better life and they will inherit a good

fortune too if anything happens to me, am

with you Boss all the way.” He raised his


one by one all the guys decided to stay with

Scar. Jo was the last to speak.

“Scar, you are more than a friend to me

boss. You have been with me and taught me

more than stealing cars and machines man,

am not going to let you in this alone. we are

brothers man. I have known you when you

were still Aaron and i was the one who

pushed you to this years back. So am not

going to abandon you brother to the death

we fight together!” He shouted looking at

Scar who nodded gently.

“Thank you all guys for all this and your

words, nothing will give me so much

courage than knowing you my brothers are

besides me as i fight my enemy. I am not a

believer in God, but if any of you is, pray that

this battle favours us. we have to hit before

Chile does and as we finish planning here

this evening i want you to promise me one

thing, anyone who will make it out alive.

Make sure you keep an eye on my son and

my woman. ” they all nodded in agreement

before they went in plotting and sketching

their plans to attack Chile.

Scar drove home to his mother after taking

and planning with his boys. They would

attack Chile`s hideout the following night. He

parked outside his mother`s house and

stood by his car for a while. He had no idea

why he was even there. After almost 10

minutes of standing outside, he knocked on

the door and his mother opened for him..

“Aaron” she called him.

” what are you doing here this time? i mean

you never visit me in the night.” She asked

concerned. He went and sat down on a sofa.

” mom,” he started.

“I want you to know i love you very much

and if anything was to happen to me. i want

you to live on and continue in happiness. I

want you to know its not your fault i lived

my life the way people will say. It was all my

doing and you never failed me. Life had its

turns on me and all my decisions were mine


His mother looked at him surprised

“My son, i don`t un-derstand you. you are a

ha-rd working person and you have made it

in life with your ha-rd work. what will people

say about you? ”

he smiled at her..

“you always say the sweetest words mom”

he smiled.

” yes.” she told him..

” you deserve that my son and more. ” he


“you are the best mom in the world mother

” he said k!ss!nghis mother on her


“I got to go mother” he said standing up to


“wait a moment” his mother st©pped him.

she went to the kitchen and brou-ght a plate

of food.

” I prepared your favorite meal this evening

like i knew you would come.” She handed

him a plate.

He smiled

“oh mother! sweet potatoes with

groundnuts? this is good thank you.”

He ate as his mother watched him.

she could feel it in her heart something was

wrong with him but Scar had always kept to

himself. He never expressed his feelings

since he was a child and his mother always

had a ha-rd time getting him to open up. He

hvgged her good bye as he went out.

“I put something in the account mom did

you see it?” he asked as they walked to his


“No” she smiled

” i will check my phone later. Maybe the

message c@m£ i didn’t see it.”

” okay good night mom” he said as he

started the car engine.

“Good night Aaron and God bless you.” She

smiled as she waved at him.


He reached home and found Sila and Zac in

the sitting room. Zac was watching cartoons

as Sila looked at nothing in p@rticular.

“Hey guys! ” he called out.

“Hey!” Sila said looking at him. Zac greeted

him as well his eyes still glued to the TV. Scar

sat quietly looking at Zac and later stood.

“am going to be-d now.” he said patting Zac

on his shoulders,

” good night big boy” he told him.

“Good night” Zac answered without looking

away from the TV.

Sila followed him the moment he closed shut

the be-droom door.

” anything new?” she asked him. :you don`t

look good at all. would you mind to tell me

what happened? ”

“Sit here” he patted the be-d besides him. Sila

sat next to him.

“I don’t have good news unfortunately. Chile

has teamed up with a big business man

from Lusaka and their mission is to hunt me

down and kill me. He doesn’t only want

what i stole from him. He wants my head on

the platter as well.” He sighed

“Oh Aron that sounds bad i don’t know

what to tell you. what are you going to do

now?” she asked concerned..

“I don’t know yet Sila. but i have planned to

attack before they do, then i might stand a

chance to beat them.,”

Sila shook her head.

“does it ever end Aaron? this your fighting

and killing each other like animals is this

what you people live for? ”

” life is a battle Sila” he responded his eyes

on her.

“i really wish i met you way back.

You know what?” he smiled.

” you are the light that has shined in my

dark life and with you besides me right now

is more than what i would ask for. promise

me you will be a strong woman and fight

ha-rd and protect our Son. He doesn’t know

me and i think he should never know his

father was a common thief if anything

happened to me.”

Sila looked up at him.

“don’t speak like you are saying good bye

Aaron don’t you dare. no one is dying

tomorrow or anytime soon.”

He smiled as he held her w@!st,

” this my dear woman is what i choose

years back and the price of what i have

done. I can not promise you more than

today because my tomorrow is not certain.”

“but…” Sila almost talked..

“shshshshsh” he whispered to her.

“i don’t want you to be sad, on the contrary

you deserve a better man and a good life. I

am not certain about my life tomorrow but,

but i am certain of one thing. I love you with

all my Mafia being” he smiled as he k!$$£d


” Allow me to enjoy being with you tonight.

Let me have some piece of happiness again”

she smiled and held him close relaxing in his

arms feeling his steady pulse from his che-st

as he stro-ke her back gently.

“whatever you say Boss” she whispered.

He smiled and closed his eyes burying his

head in her che-st.
