The president’s wife
“wake up jason” a thin femine voice echoed..i could feel blood spreading all over my white shirt as I was been wheeled to the ambulance..”wake up jason” the blurry female figure running after us shouted again…the figure was later stopped by some nurses as I tried harder not to close my eyes but yes suddenly..everything went blank…
I quickly jumped up from my large bed checking my body..chaii.. “It was a dream” I said breathing and sweating heavily even in the cold weather.. Oh d–n.. It’s morning already.. I have been shot and stabbed many times but it was nothing horrific as in my dream.. Chaii… I dived into a simple cloth and walked to my neatly decorated sitting room to gulp down some water… I used the chance to switch on the medium plasma TV placed on an average shelf in my medium sized sitting room and yes all news channels was talking about the newly elected president.
Being the youngest president in Nigeria’s history marvelled everybody… The 45years old man (Johnson Paul Wellington) picture was shown boldly on Fox News channel with his wife (Johnson Christine Amanda)..oh his wife…the youngest First Lady in Nigeria’s history at the age of 29,,being a famous Hollywood actress before made it more unbelievable..chaii.. For some moments..i imagined myself being in their shoes…i will embezzle money ehn!..why that face, you think am lying? .. I sat down and switched the channel to supersport.. Why is there no p–n channel sef… “olamide story for the gods” suddenly blared out of my hotnote speaker signalling a call..the caller ID was hidden..confusion plastered on my face trying to figure out who it might be
Person: Agent J
The voice was a complete match with the NIS director as the cattle-like voice made it more obvious..
Me: Agent Jay 1202.. Yes director..
Director: I am so sorry,, unfortunately your vacation has been cancelled as you have a new mission..
Me: but sir….(interrupted)
Person: the new president’s wife was attacked yesterday night by unknown Criminals..we lost few agents.. A skilled agent is required to ensure the full protection of the First Lady.,report to aso rock ASAP… Your flight has been booked..you are moving in the next 10hrs..
Me: but s..(cut in)
Person: it’s an order..
Me: understood sir… *hung up*
Chaii..three days in vacation..i was called up for another mission again…hours later..i was prepared..my analog clock hung on the wall in sitting room shows it was 9 hrs 30mins after the call from the NIS director.. After preparing my essential stuff in my back pack,,I exited my rented apartment and headed airport..
Nnamdi azikwe airport. 5:32pm
After the short flight to abuja nnamdi azikiwe international airport.. A rugged man clad in Italian suit directed me to a Range Rover prepared to transport me.. Chaii.. Na so I dey feel boss… After few minutes on the road..we got to our destination..yea Aso rock.. The car slowly walked inside the overhead pillars and to the parking lot…i had to wait in the extremely spacious sitting room decorated with many da Vinci’s art as a result of the President having meeting in the conference room..bodyguards,agents and maids were everywhere..i don’t know why am required again..the extremely large plasma TV hung flatly on the wall was something else and indescribable..”this is paradise” I concluded..the President later walked in with the big bellied NIS director smiling behind and his wife..yes his wife was beside him in her white designed gown..the gown was Heavenly that it seemed Angel Gabriel was her tailor..and maybe it was Angel Michael..who knows!!
Me: welcome sir..*standing and making a low bow*
NIS director: you are here Jason..
Mr President: hello young man…have your seat..lets talk..
I sat beside the NIS director facing Mr President and his wife..a glance at the President wife made me want to glue my eyes.. She was perfect.. Her green kryptonite coloured eyes is enough to die for.. She was extremely beautiful that I won’t argue if it turns out she was an angel or a goddess.. Chinsos
Mr President: My wife was attacked by unknown criminals yesterday’s night.. Such thing could repeat itself again.. We need a maximum protection which I hope you can provide..
NIS director: This will be a full time protection means you will be living here in aso rock till we are sure everything is settled.. You follow her everywhere she goes..
President wife: even to the bathroom?
President and the NIS director bursted to laughter while I smiled and suddenly our eyes met.. I mean I and the President wife.. Why will I be looking at the ugly big bellied director and president…she was so beautiful that I had to stared for few seconds before gathering all my strength to look away.. Chaii.. Is that my heart beating?…
Mr President: I hope I can fully trust you..
Me: You won’t be dissapointed sir..
Mr President: please protect my wife without her am nothing *he begged calmly*
Me: with my life sir..
NIS director: this can’t be leaked out,, this is the reason you will be acting as the First Lady’s brother that just cameback from abroad..make sure you are not discovered as a special agent.. Once you are discovered,everything is over.. Good luck agent J..
I shook hands with the standing President and once again my eyes met with his gorgeous Medusa wife who was smiling as we took a short stares at each other
Mr President: I have a meeting with the commissioners*he pecked his wife and walked out with the director*
The whole room was silent as I was still standing doing everything I could to avoid her eyes as she was seated watching the TV…”Jason right? ” she suddenly said..
Me: yes madam..
Her: i hope it isn’t my permission you are waiting for to sit-down is it?
I smiled still maintaining my balance…even though I don’t really know why I was standing..aiish
Her: it seems it was.. Okay sit down…*smiling*
Me: thank you madam..*sat down*
My phone suddenly started ringing.. The caller’s number was unsaved..who is this one again..”excuse me ma”..i said even though she failed to reply and I quickly swipe to the green telephone symbol on my phone screen..”that’s my number” a familiar,clearer and louder voice said from the my phone speaker and outside the call..then I realise it was the President wife calling..
Her: I pranked you..anyway that’s my number,, I may call you anytime *smiling*
Is that your own prank?… Chaii….”you need brain surgery bikonu” I said in my mind na,i won’t want to die young…”sir” a feminine voice brought me out of my thoughts..i turned to the direction of the very tall dark girl clipped in suit…”follow me, let me show you your room sir” she said bowing like in Korean movies..chaii.. Na so I start to dey feel myself.. Chaii.. I stood without hesitation and followed the girl..
President wife: Rest well.. See you tomorrow..jason..*stressing the j.a.s.on*
Did she just call my name again?.i stopped then looked back surprisingly.. Chinsos.. She smiled while I pulled together all my physical,mental and my other strengths to smile back then followed the tall girl.. We climbed up the stairs and later got to a room she called mine…i made my way inside still thinking about the President wife.. Oh my God.. This is completely a death wish thought..
