[STORY] DEEP SECRETS (Episode 1-10)

Episode 7

Episode 7 . . . 01:55 pm, Arcot Restaurant Stella is sitting by herself at a table, a cup of ice cream is on the table and her phone in hand. She fiddles with the phone for a moment and then places a call to a doctor, “Hello Doc, I am at Arcot, I have all the samples you asked for. I need you to come over quickly.” “Give me fifteen minutes to get there,” said the doctor. “Can you make ten, I have got so much on my hands right now; I need every minute I can get.” “Okay, I will try.” 01:59 pm, Emilia’s House Emilia descends from the staircase, bare breasted and wearing only a G-string. Two armed guards are in the living room. Mayo is sitting on one of the white sofas in the sitting room with his eyes glued to the television set until Emilia descended from the staircase. Emilia waved her hands at the two guards and they left quickly. She walked over to where Mayo was sitting and asked, “How are my new pair of boobs?” touching them as she spoke. Mayo had a disinterested look on his face. Tacitly he said, “They look good… I want to know who amongst my friends made the videos. I think you have hit the wrong persons…” “Not so fast boy!” Emilia shunned him. Sitting on his lap she took his right hand and brushed it over her breasts. “The American doctor who did the breast enhancement surgery said they are the best I can get anywhere in the world at the moment.” Still running his hand over her breasts, she continued, “Do they feel any differently compared to the last time you touched them?” “I think you should put some clothes on Emilia. The things I told you in Ghana were said in anger. You should never have come after my friends without letting me know.” Emilia stood up and gave him a hot slap across the face. While Mayo wondered what he did to get a slap like that, Emilia pointed her right hand at him and yelled, “You are not in the position to tell me what to do Mayo!! No, you are not! Don’t make that mistake!!” “You don’t want to pick a fight with me Emilia!” Mayo shouted back at her and immediately to armed guards ran into the living room. As quickly as they came in, Emilia waved them off. “Mayo, you are still alive because you accepted my offer from the beginning. Besides that, you are my best man in bed. I am not quite ready to lose you yet. If you know the truck loads of lies I have had to tell to save your ass, you would be doing your job right on top of me by now.” “Eve and Stanley did not make the videos, someone else did and you should be looking for that person.” “Don’t give me that bull shit Mayo! If you cared this much about Eve and Stanley, why didn’t you warn them when I told you they were going to get assassinated. Why did you do nothing?!” Mayo lowered his head into his palms and groaned in pain. Emilia drew closer and squatted next to him and whispered, “It’s okay baby, I didn’t know you cared this much about them.” Mayo raised his head with his eyes moist, “I was going to tell Stanley that a hit had been sanctioned on him. I was waiting to tell him after his wedding. I had no clue you would come for them on their wedding day. Eve was innocent. That girl died for nothing. I know I had issues with Stanley for letting no one touch her, but I wished her no ill.” “I have a little surprise for you. Eve and Stanley may still be alive…” Mayo got excited. “…I am not going to tell you where they are until you have done your job.” Emilia stooped a bit, removed her G-string, threw it on a sofa and sat on Mayo’s laps. Mayo had been caught in a web bigger than his weight could handle. Emilia was not after recovering the videos, she actually wanted to keep them from being found. Mayo was her pun. She had been paid thirty million US dollars to make sure the videos circulated very well amongst the people even though she was in the videos as well. She would kill everyone who knew where the original copies of the videos where. From the beginning she had it all planned out. Some big wigs in politics and the corporate world would be brought down by those videos. 02:15 pm, Arcot Restaurant “You took longer than you said you would, what happened?” Stella asked looking angry. “I am sorry; it wasn’t my fault. I was held up in traffic.” As soon as the doctor sat down, Stella removed a pack from her handbag and began to explain its contents to the doctor, “This sample is from my husband. This one is from Mayo, that one belongs to my son. Here is mine. Please do a thorough job. I want to know who his father is.” The doctor took the samples and sunk them into a black leather bag. Stella rummaged in her handbag and removed a brown envelope containing wads of dollars and handed them to the doctor. He took the envelope from Stella and shoved it into his hip pocket. Stella could see Chucks and Clara walking into the restaurant. She leaned toward the doctor and said, “Get out now!” The doctor sprang to his feet and walked toward some cakes on display as if he wanted to buy them. Stella kept her gaze on Chucks and Clara to know if they saw the doctor standing up from her table. She could tell they did not and so she relaxed and waved at them. When Chucks and Clara had sat down, they asked, “You said you have something to tell us, what is it?” Stella looked around, leaned toward her friends and said, “Mayo knows more than any of us thinks. Before any of us found out that Eve and Stanley had been shot, he said something to me while we were together at Eden Crest Suit.” “What did he tell you?” Clara asked. “He said Eve and Stanley are not going to last long together. He added that they would make a big sad story together. I have the feeling when he said they would make a big sad story together, her meant their sudden death. I don’t want to be paranoid, but the way his face looked when he said that was scary. For a moment he looked like something which crawled out of hades. We need to work together and find out what Mayo knows.” “I don’t like the sound of this. We should never have let this happen to us,” Chucks said. “That is what happens when you break natural laws and give your whole self to lasciviousness. We have slept with ourselves and have been most unfaithful to our marriage partners. Some can count how many men they have slept with; as for me, I have lost count. I have even slept with my husband’s…” Stella had to stop herself, she almost told her friends a bit more than she would want them to know. “You should keep your confession to yourself Stella or go find a pastor and confess all you have done. And while you are at it, don’t forget to leave the city with your family members or at least get yourself some good security personnel,” Chucks suggested. “Speaking of confession, I have need for it also. I can’t go on like this anymore,” Clara said with a broken voice. “Let us not forget the reason we are here. Are we going to work together and crack this case? Who is Mayo working with? What does he know? Who is Emilia? How can we find a picture of her? Are you guys with me on this?” Clara and Chucks nodded vigorously. “But how about Steve and Bimpe, should they know what we are doing?” Clara asked. “No, we should keep it amongst ourselves; the smaller the better. Look, there are videos of us and some important people out there and we don’t know who amongst us made it. Let us keep this simple, if it leaks I can tell who amongst us is responsible for that,” Stella said. THREE DAYS LATER 4: 40 pm, A Mansion outside the City Since Eve and Stanley were rescued from the hospital by some gun men, the three doctors taking care of them had done their best to nurse them back to health. Since they were shot on the night of their wedding day, they had been tethering on the edge of death. However, with the treatment they had received in the mansion for some days, things were beginning to look good again for them. “Hey! I think the evening breeze will be good for the two of you. Why don’t you let us take you two outside?” Doctor Larry asked Eve and Stanley. They looked at each other and smiled. “We will like to give it a trial, so long as we won’t get shot,” Eve said with her killer smile on her face. The doctors gently put them in wheelchairs and wheeled them to the garden in the mansion. The flowers in the garden were well cut and the lush green grass on the ground looked awesome. Brightly coloured butterflies s—–g nectar, flew around the garden, seeming to have no care in the world. While Stanley studied the Garden and the imposing building from which they were wheeled out, Eve plucked some flowers and smelt them happily. Under her breath she said to herself, “It is good to be alive after all I have been through.” Looking up at the doctor who pushed her wheelchair she said, “Can you get me closer to Stan?” “Of course mam,” replied the doctor. Eve was glad to take Stanley’s hand in hers. She squeezed it as hard as she could and then brought it to her lips and kissed it passionately. “I am glad you are still here baby,” she said to Stanley. Stanley smiled mechanically and returned his gaze on the compound in which they were. “Since you two haven’t had a real time alone since your wedding day, we will leave you alone for some time. When darkness begins to settle, we will come back to wheel you back into the house. Please try not to get up from your wheel chairs; you are not yet strong enough to handle the exaction of walking around on your feet. If you need anything just call any of us and we would bring them to you.” When the doctors left them, Eve was eager to get as much kiss from Stanley as she could, but Stanley seemed uninterested. “What is it baby? Since our wedding night, you haven’t touched. The least you can do now is kiss me.” “Babe, we are still not safe,” Stanley replied. Eve felt her heart sink into her stomach. “Why did you say that?” “Look around, this place is a luxurious prison.” “But the doctors are in charge here.” “That is my point Eve. We have been here for three days and a few hours and yet we have not seen a single policeman.” Eve looked around as if a light bulb just turned on in her head. “Who then are these doctors?” she asked. “The way I see it, they are working for whoever is keeping us here.” From a room in the building the doctors watched Eve and Stanley on a monitor, listening to their conversation. They were hoping that the two of them would talk about what they knew about the videos. In the garden, Eve finally got the chance to ask the questions which had been bothering her all along, “Baby, do you have any ideas why we were shot? Who are the persons after us?” Stanley looked hard and long at her and said nothing. Eve did not understand his meaning, but she could tell he was saying something to her. Changing the topic, Stanley asked, “Baby, why don’t you let me see what you are wearing under?” Eve wasn’t sure what he was doing, but she trusted him. She reached under her clothe and pulled off her underwear and threw it at him. Stanley caught it mid-air and wheeled closer to Eve. Pretending he wanted to kiss her he whispered, “There are cameras in the flowers, don’t ask me about why we were shot. I can’t tell you here. Something is wrong about this place.” “Doctor Larry told me that some people were going to help us. Maybe they are the ones keeping us here,” Eve recalled.
