‘If you lay a hand on me, I’ll make sure you regret it for the rest of your life.’ Tayo sneered at the guard that had come to do the King’s bidding.
Sam chuckled as he realized that he had shaken the man’s boldness with his shot. He wasn’t serious about shooting his crotch; he’d only fired the vacuum between his legs.
‘Please…I’ll do whatever you want.’ The man’s lips shook as he realized he had been at a very close shave with death.

‘What about you, what do you say?’ Sam grinned and pointed his gun at the second man.
‘We’ll take you to the king.’ He replied in a shaky voice.
‘Now we are talking. After you guys,’ He pointed at the golden gate. He couldn’t wait to have an audience with King Yemi.
Sam knew this mission was very dangerous. Once he stepped into the palace, there will be two outcomes. It was either he stepped out alive, or got buried under the King’s roses.
He just had to be very tactful. While the men led the way towards the tall gate, he quickly pulled out his phone and sent Elvis a message.
Come back with reinforcement. If I don’t step out in an hour, kill everyone in the palace. T.M
While Tayo was arguing with the guard who’d been acting on the King’s orders, the golden gate which led to the entrance of King Yemi’s palace opened.
‘Tayo! We need to run!’ Yemi got hold of her hand and pulled her roughly.
Just in time, the men quickly led the mask into the Royal grove of King Yemi Lasisi.
‘Exquisite,’ Sam scoffed as he took in the beauty of the palace, but there wasn’t much time for further admiration. He had come for something important and he wasn’t leaving without it.
‘My lord, the Mask is here, what should we do?’ One of the men with Yemi asked.
‘Shoot him!’ Tayo yelled.
‘Don’t shoot, he is alone. I guess he has come to discuss something.’ Yemi quickly released his sister and focused on the faceless man that strolled majestically towards the garden where they stood.
Tayo scoffed, she couldn’t believe her brother would be this weak.
‘You’re making a mistake that you’ll forever regret.’ She sneered at him, but he ignored her.
Sam was able to hear their argument, and that confirmed everything that he had heard about the Princess. She was domineering and insulting towards her elder brother, the King.
‘Hello Yemi,’ Sam quickly pulled off his mask, showing his true face to the regal and his sister.
Yemi swallowed hard as he focused on the ugly scar that sat on Sam’s face. There was nothing beautiful about this thug. He looked as scary as the stories surrounding him.
‘What do you want in my palace?’ Yemi growled.
Sam exhaled, he took in the beautiful scenery of the garden and the entire building. The architecture was ancient; it was byzantine but very unique on its own.
‘You have a beautiful home my King. This Palace reminds me of one of the Four Seasons hotel I’d lodged in Canada. It was very luxurious.’ Sam bowed his head mockingly.
Tayo couldn’t believe her brother was conversing with the criminal, ‘You don’t have any place here. You are not welcome. Leave before it becomes too late.’ She threatened, but he wasn’t moved.
Sam shrugged and moved closer to the king, but was immediately stopped by the guards who formed a barricade, enclosing him in.
‘I have come to take what is mine.’ Sam bellowed.
‘And what is that?’ Yemi arched a brow.
‘I know what the rock fields mean to you. What if I surrendered and let you take all of the vermillion quietly? I swear that no tier of Government would be alerted about this transaction. We can even sign an agreement. But I’ll need something in return for my allegiance.’ Sam didn’t waste time in negotiation.
Yemi scoffed, what was the criminal talking about?
‘And what do I owe you?’ Yemi asked.
‘Enobong Benjamin. She is my wife.’

She’d drifted off to dreamland. She found herself roaming one of the beaches she had visited in Tamil Nadu. Coconut trees surrounded the sandy beach. Stalls meant for steak lover were stacked together at the farthest end. There were women, men and children, all laughing or taking pictures.
Eno was strolling towards the water; the silvery waves were calling out her name. She felt alone in that moment, nobody cared about her. Nobody loved her. But the waves were fighting each other, rolling in a passionate torrent as she drew nearer.
All her life she had been devoted to her work and desire to help humanity. But deep down, she had always felt this hole, she didn’t feel complete or fulfilled. And it was that emptiness that drove her towards the sea.
She let out a gasp as her left foot kissed the cold water. Wind rustled her raven hair. She felt free. This was heavenly.
Her eyes glowed in ecstasy as she stared at the water before her. Once she stepped in, the waves would overpower her and make her theirs. Her eyes averted to the cluster of tents which were filled with people, but they didn’t seem to notice her.
‘Doctor Benjamin!’ A sharp scream caught her attention, and when she looked upon the waters another time, she found the girl she hadn’t been able to save.
Her eyes popped open, ‘Jahnvi?’ She drew a sharp breath and began walking towards the little girl who seemed so helpless and afraid.
‘Hold on Jahnvi! I am coming to save you.’ Eno watched as the waves seeped into the helm of Jahnvi’s sari. She needed to hurry before it was too late.
Tears rushed down her face as she moved deeper and deeper into the water. Her feet were drenched in the pleasuring feel of the cold water.
Eno was almost at the middle of the sea when she noticed the figure fading slowly into the atmosphere.
‘Jahnvi? No! Wait…’ she started to run, but the violent rising of the waves slowed her down. To her horror, she realized the girl had only been a daylight mirage.
A strange feeling of defeat settled upon her as she realized the waves had lured her. The water had played with her mind. It had trapped her reasoning and now she would pay dearly for her life.
But she wasn’t afraid to drown. Eno spread her arms like a wing ready for its next journey. She was done with this life, and she was prepared to retire to the place where the other waited for her. She was prepared to cross the river of life and step into another world.
She had nothing to lose and no one to love.
‘Please take me…’ she blinked away the tears that stung her eyelids.
Her heart jolted as she felt two strong arms lifting her upwards. She was confused and fought with the man who’d thought himself her savior.
‘Let go of me!’ She kicked and writhed, but he ignored her. Once they were both out of the water, he dropped her gently on the beach.
The moment her eyes met with his’, Eno realized that he was the man that she had been looking for all these years.
‘You?’ Her eyes glowed with unshed tears.
‘Yes, what were you trying to do?’ He asked.
‘I…I couldn’t find you. I thought I’d lost you.’ Her voice was husky. She couldn’t believe she’d come face to face with the man that haunted her dreams.
Suddenly, she began to see him in new light. He wasn’t that unattractive as she’d seen him the first day. The ugly scar on his face was a tattoo of a painful memory. His eyes were so soft and delicate. They were the fireflies that glowed in the darkest part of her soul.
‘I love you darling, you should learn to forgive yourself. Jahnvi’s death is not your fault and you know that. You tried your best to save her.’ He caressed her temple.
This shocked her more, ‘How do you know Jahnvi?’
