chidi was with emma in the car driving, they were coming from a party they attended in the next town,it was around 6pm,they got to a three junction and they took the road by their left, they haven’t drive for five minutes they met a red car parked in the middle of the road,chidi had to stop the car.
They both looked at each other,they were both suspicious
Emma: just go back
Chidi was about to revise when another car blocked him from behind.
Chidi: FucK, it a trap.
Chidi look under his sit and brought out a gun,emma also did the same,that was where they always keep their weapons each time they are driving because of the police, they were already preparing themselves for what ever will happen when maxwell and one other guy came out behind the red car, the boy that is with maxwell was holding a cutless while maxwell was holding a gun,another also came down from the car behind chidi car also holding a gun.
Emma :speak of the devil
Emma :what should we do
Chidi:am going out
Chidi :are we really just going to sit down here like a coward, they are just three of them,you got my back right
Emma :you know i always got your back
Chidi and emma came down from the car,they immediately point gun at each other, emma was facing the one at the back while maxwell and chidi was facing eachother,chidi went closer to maxwell.
Chidi :i can see you came well prepared maxwell, so now you are here what are you going to do
Maxwell : to kill you
Chidi :impressive, and how are you going to do that, maxwell i don’t want you dead if I wanted it you could have been gone by now.
Maxwell :but I want you dead,i gave you a warning but you ignored it
Chidi :you don’t scare me maxwell, how about you do it this way,you have a gun and i have mine,you shot and i shot, then we both die and no one gets to have amara or you tell your baby boys to get lost and we all leave peacefully,you choose.
Chidi was a very good shooter,he is so fast and have never missed a shut,emma was not bad also they were both determine to kill them and stay alive,emma was waiting for a signal to shot.
Maxwell :i think i choose the part that said I killed you’
Just then chidi shot at maxwell gun and it fall from his hand, at the sound of the gun shot emma shot the other boy and he fell and died,the boy with the cutless was coming towards chidi when emma also put him down,maxwell wanted to pick up the gun again but chidi got there before him,chidi quickly pick the gun and throw it far from maxwell, he gripped maxwell on his collar and began to punch him angryly.
Chidi :i told you to stay away from me
He throw him down and began to kick him,maxwell kept on shouting in pain.
Chidi :do you know i can waste you here right now
Hit him again, maxwell was now bleeding all over his face,
Chidi :but I won’t kill you,let me warn you if you try this again i swear you will be dead,
He took a knife from his pocket and stab maxwell left hand
Maxwell cried in pain)awwwwwwww F**K
Chidi :that will keep the memory of today in your head forever, next time you won’t be this lucky
He punch him again,chidi entered his car while emma quickly went to the car behind them,the car key was still there so he start the car and drove it aside enabling chidi to pass,chidi stopped and emma entered and they drove off.as soon as they left maxwell manage to crawled to where chidi throwed his gun he use the side of the jacket he was putting on to collect the gun,he put his hand in his pocket and brought out his phone and called the police,and then ended the call,he then point the gun at the right side of his stomach, maxwell is a trained doctor in UK, so he knows everything about the human body, he knows if he shot himself at that side it will take him more than two hours before he could die,he was ready to take the risk,at least the police will be here anytime soon.
Maxwell :this is for you Amara
He gave a deep breath and shut himself, not up to thirty minutes the police arrived and they quickly rushed him to the hospital,he has given the police mens the information to them needed about him before he shut himselt so it was very easy to contact his mother Mrs ada Marcus and amara number was not left out.
It was the next day morning, mrs ada Marcus was already in the hospital,she was with maxwell who was still unconscious,she rushed down to port Harcourt as soon as possible when she heard what has happened to her son,she was sitting close to maxwell bed,one of the nurse walked in holding a tray injection,a cotton wool, and a small bottle was seen in the tray.
Nurse :good morning ma’am
Mrs ada Marcus :good morning
The nurse drop the tray beside the bed of maxwell, took the injection, she then draw some liquid from the small bottle into the injection and then inject it into the drip fixed on him.
Mrs ada Marcus :how is he
Nurse :he will be fine,he is responding to treatment.
Mrs ada Marcus okey
As the nurse was about to leave maxwell started murmuring,Mrs ada Marcus draw closer to him,so that she can hear what he is saying.
Mrs ada Marcus :i think he is trying to say something
Just then maxwell slowly opened his eyes,mrs ada Marcus was so happy
Mrs ada Marcus :ahh he has woken up,maxwell, maxwell, thank God
The nurse quickly ran to get the doctor,few minutes later the doctor came in
Doctor :madam, please excuse me
Mrs ada Marcus gave way for the doctor to pass,after examining him, he turned to mrs ada Marcus
Doctor :his blood pressure is normal, your son was lucky the bullet didn’t hit the wrong position, so in no time he will be okey,and meanwhile the police said if he wakes up i should inform them so that they can hear from him what happened
Mrs ada Marcus :no problem, thank you
Maxwell :i am so tired
Doctor :yes you are,you will be okey, madam he really needs some food any thing light for now,so you should work on that.
Mrs ada Marcus :that won’t be a problem
Doctor :i will come check on you later,
Mrs ada Marcus thanked the doctor and the doctor left, she held maxwell by the hand
Mrs ada Marcus :how are you feeling
It was so difficult for maxwell to speak because he was so tired
Maxwell :where is Amara

she got up and left,maxwell close his eye to sleep, some minutes later Mrs ada Marcus came in with the food and some fruit, she added one more pillow to the one on maxwell head so that he can be able to eat cause he can’t sit up now,maxwell finished eating with the help of his mother, he drank some water and lied back on the bed,three police men walked into the room followed by the doctor. They all exchange a pleasant greetings,the police men introduce themselves and told Mrs ada Marcus that they could love to ask her son some questions so she agreed.
Meanwhile amara entered the hospital and went to the nurse at the reception.

Nurse :good afternoon
Amara :please am looking for a patient, i was told he was rushed here yesterday by some police men
Nurse :yes he is in ward five,take this entrance then by your right you will see him
Amara :thanks you.

Maxwell :mum please she has nothing to do with this stop doing that” she is a victim as I am,she really don’t know anything about this
But still Mrs ada Marcus didn’t stop because she was so mad,she keep promising that he will make chidi pay for what he did,Amara who was still standing at the door was full with pain and guilt, she was bitterly crying, she couldn’t believe chidi could go that far,she wouldn’t bear all what she was hearing any more, she left the hospital in tears, she headed to chidi house, when she arrived there she opened the gate because the gate wasn’t locked, she went to the door and push it open,chidi came out of the kitchen to see who it was and he was so surprised to see amara crying, he was so worried,chidi then walk up to her trying to comfort her
Chidi :what’s wrong, baby tell me
But amara angryly push him away, chidi was shocked,

Mr Marcus came down to nigeria, he was very angry about the whole incident, Mr and Mrs Marcus went to the police station,they were called by the D.P.O ,they arrived at the police station,they told the police attendant that they were on appointment, they were lead by one of the police man to the D.P.O office, after they exchange greetings they were all sitted.
D.P.O :well I called both of you here because of the new development in the case of your son.
Mr Marcus :i was told this morning that the criminal has been arrested, so I want to see the face of that idiot that wanted to kill my son,where is he.
Mrs ada Marcus :we want to see him first before i will have anything to say
D.P.O :that Is the reason why I called the both of you,yes we arrested the boy this morning but his lawyer came here to bail him,so we granted him bail
Mr and Mrs Marcus was surprise and shocked about what the d.p.o was saying, Mr Marcus got angry
Mr Marcus :what are you saying, that you allow a criminal to go,are you serious
Mrs ada Marcus :this is unbelievable
D. P. O:you have to calm down,i can understand your anger,but you see we had no choice.
Mr Marcus :what are you saying, i mean there are enough evidence already, didn’t his finger print matches with that on the gun,so what more do you need.
D. P.O:but that’s not enough evidence,there was no witness and beside they might turn the story around, this case is not as easy as you think,the people involved are very influential.
Mr Marcus :what an insult, so because they are influential he can’t be brought to book.
D. P.O:yes he can,but it will be a wastage of your income and time,even if we charge the case to court, it will be dismissed, it is a fight you cannot win mr marcus
Mrs ada Marcus :this is serious, so who is his father that is untouchable
D.P.O:am sorry madam i can’t tell you,his identity should not be disclosed at cases like this but he sent a message to you,he said he is very sorry for what his son did that he never supported him in anyway and he promise to deal with him his own way,he knows money cannot heal your son pain but he will have to hold responsibility for your son treatment till his recovering, he will also like to compensate your son with this sum of money.
He brought out a big brown envelop containing money and he put it on the table.
D.P.O:it’s ten million naira,listen i am a father like you and i will know what I will do to any one that try to kill my son but if I was in your shoe now i will think about this offer because if he gave this money right here to any judge he won’t think twice before accepting it,at least think about this, your son can do something better with this kind of money, you should drop the case and let this pass.
Mrs and Mrs Marcus didn’t know what to do or say ,they both thought about the offer and later accepted,they left the d.p.o office and went to see maxwell in the hospital, they told him everything that happened, maxwell was not happy that chidi was set free but he was still glad that at least all this brought him both money and the woman he loves.
It was now two day since chidi return from the police station, he was in the sitting room with jude,emma and Godwin, they were all smoking and drinking, their wasn’t any joy on their faces.

Chidi :we do kiss and romance but it always ends there
Jude:i still don’t get,you mean all this months you have been dating nothing happened
Chidi :she is still intact
Godwin :you no mean am
Chidi :i was just waiting for the right time,she didn’t want to be rushed, but now I don’t think that time will come.

Godwin :jude,u no go watch your language, u don forget who u dey talk to
Jude:no vex,i dey vex
Chidi :i know you are right but what ever you do to him ever now won’t change anything, it will only increase my dad anger towards me,he is really upset with me and because of that he said i should go to London to complete my studies
Emma :you are leaving us
Jude :for how long will you be gone
Chidi :don’t know, i really don’t,
Godwin hhhhh,why na
Chidi :i will still be communicating with you guys,okey
Jude:when are you leaving
Chidi :next week
They were all sad that chidi will be leaving not even knowing when to come back, they could miss him so much because he was more than a friend,chidi gave them most of his belongings,
It was the day that chidi was leaving for London, his luggage has been put in the car,his father and mother are in the sitting room,the driver that will take him to the airport is waiting for him outside, chidi came down from the stairs, Mr Jonathan was sitting down,immediately chidi knelt down before him and Mrs Jonathan.
Chidi:dad,mum am sorry for everything i have done to both of you,dad please find a place in your heart to forgive me
Mrs Jonathan looked at Mr Jonathan
Mrs Jonathan :please darling forgive him,can’t you see he is really sorry
Mr Jonathan:get up
Chidi got up
Mr Jonathan :you are my son,and i love you so much,apologising is not the problem but keeping to your words are,as long as you behave yourself you won’t have problem with me
Chidi :i promise dad i will do the right thing and make you proud
Then they hug,they all went outside and chidi left to the airport, it was a goodbye to everything he ever knows,he will miss everyone mostly amara, TO BE CONTINUED😢
