Paul had been in a relationship with Ore for two years, but he had broken up with her because of her past. The nature of his job didn’t allow him to show emotions, and that was what her story made him feel.
He had loved Ore genuinely, but he was not cut out for the kind of life that she had expected, so he had to move on.
‘I don’t know where she is.’ Ore replied coolly.

She was still mad that Paul had bundled her into a chair and tied her back in.
At first, she felt angry and frustrated that the Spirit had not revealed this occurrence to her, but she let go of all the negative emotions when she thought about her sister Oye, whom she had just reconciled with.
Ore had a feeling that Oye knew Paul and the men who wanted Gavin dead would come for her, this was the reason Julia had asked her to leave, but she hadn’t listen.
She didn’t regret living either. She loved her sister with all of her heart, and she was prepared to lay down her life for Julia.
‘I am not fucking with you Ore, where the hell is Julia? I need her now!’ Paul yelled angrily and walked towards the bathroom, screaming the name of the assassin that had failed to clip Gavin Adediran.
The moment Paul walked away, Lily who had been watching Ore closely as she had also been tied to another chair wondered if this lady sitting a stone throw from her was the same Ore Martins she had gone to school with.
Ore’s eyes were on the metallic wardrobe, that was the only place her sister would have hidden herself.
Ore prayed and hoped that Paul wouldn’t find her there. She didn’t want to lose her sister, the same day she had found her.
‘Excuse me…’ Lily licked her lips in confusion.
At once, Ore’s attention fled the wardrobe and focused on Lily’s gloomy face.
Ore’s heart fluttered as she thought of Gavin, he sounded so scared and concerned about her wellbeing, before Paul snatched the phone away from her.
Being so far away from Gavin, had made her realize how much she truly cared about him. The sound of his voice alone, had sent shivers running down her spine.
And looking into Lily’s eyes made her feel better, because she had the same dark and broody eyes like her brother.
‘Did you ever attend Mayflower College?’ Lily swallowed.

It seemed she was asking a stupid question, but she still needed to be sure. The man that had kidnapped her had made this woman talk to her brother. She had to be special to him, for the kidnapper to do that.
Lily also remembered Delilah’s complaints some days back about Gavin’s love interest in another woman, Ore Martins.
‘Yes.’ Ore replied calmly, surprised at her painless reaction to this innocent question. It showed that the lord had started working on her.
Usually, she fell into depression whenever the memories of her childhood came up. She always remembered the abuse and the rapes she had experienced at the hands of the men in the orphanage where she grew up.
The harsh voices and unfriendly faces of both the students and the teachers always played back, but this time, she was absolutely calm and composed.
‘Are you Ore Martins…’ Lily’s mouth itched for words.
Ore could tell that Lily was up to something, but she didn’t have the courage to voice out what bothered her.
‘Well, my name is Lillian Adediran, I was your classmate, I don’t know if you remember me.’ Lily had wanted to ask Ore if she were still the girl that the dirty history, but she refrained from doing so as she remembered their current position.
Ore bit her lip the moment Lily introduced herself, ‘You were friends with Carissa right?’
‘Yes, you do remember…’ Lily grinned, but Ore wasn’t smiling.
‘So, you are related to Gavin?’ Ore’s heart began to race as she considered how Gavin would react should he know about her past.
‘Yes, he is my elder brother. I am surprised you know him too.’ Lily affirmed with a nod.
Ore didn’t know what to say in return, so she forced a smile. Now that she remembered, Lillian Adediran had been one of the richest kids in her class. She wasn’t mean to Ore like the other kids, but she believed the lies that people spread about her.
Ore felt a little bit sad as she remembered how she was shunned by the other girls in her class.
‘He is my friend.’ She nodded.
‘Friend?’ Lily raised a brow, from the looks of it, Delilah had been telling the truth. Her brother was with the school tramp, but she was determined to sabotage that relationship once they had regained their freedom.
“Tell her the truth, she is lost like the others.” A loud voice rang in Ore’s voice which made her wince in pain.
Ore felt the Spirit’s presence within her. Although she couldn’t see him, she could feel him.
‘Thank God, I have a lot of questions to ask you. But first, how do we get out of this place alive?’ She asked the Spirit.
“Don’t worry about that. I have made proper arrangements.” The Holy Spirit returned.
Lily noticed how calm Ore had become. She held this “lost,” expression in her eyes. Though her body was confined to this room, her mind was elsewhere.
A rueful smile curled Lily’s lips as she thought of Gavin. Many times, she had found her brother in this trance like state, but he had always explained it away with, “You wouldn’t understand,” but he had been forced to tell her the truth one day.
Lily scoffed as she continued staring at Ore, there was no way the Holy Spirit would make use of someone so trashy.
‘I can’t wait to get out of here.’ Lily rolled her eyes.
‘Proper arrangements? You kept a lot of things hidden from me. You never told me Paul was evil. You never told me he was after Gavin’s life. You never told me that the woman that kidnapped me was my sister? Why?’ Ore wasn’t upset or anything, she just felt hurt that the Spirit would abandon her at the time of her greatest need.
“There is a time in the heavens and in the earth for everything. This is your time of surprises, both positive and negative. No more questions now, I have a little assignment for you.” The Spirit was no longer loud, He was calm and gentle.
‘Great! Why can’t we do this assignment later? Paul wants to kill Gavin, are you thinking of that Lord?’ Ore was not comfortable with the Spirit’s decision.
“Do you love me?” He asked.
Ore licked her lips nervously, ‘Of course. I love you lord and you know it.’
“If I asked you to surrender your life, wouldn’t you?”
‘I will.’ She sighed, and quickly added, ‘I am sorry Jesus. Please forgive me. I was just worried…’
“Forgiven, I am with you wherever you go, always remember that.”
Ore’s heart glowed with joy and satisfaction. She had never felt this safe and loved by anyone since the day Oye was kidnapped and since the last time she was Gavin.
‘Thank you.’ She smiled.
“Now tell her…”
Ore was perplexed, ‘Tell her what? I can’t talk to her. She is just like everyone else. They all assume the worst of him, and have written my story before hearing me out.’
How could the Spirit even ask that of her?
“I know. I will make her believe you. Tell her now.”
