Nadia exhale tiredly as she dropped her luggage on the floor of the hotel room she has occupied, she has just lounged into one of the hotels in Lagos state, she just have hours to prepare for the party of Senator Philip who she has gotten the location and invitation card from Richard, Richard had called as promised to inform her that he has left some package for her in the hands of her security, she was indeed grateful to Richard now everything was in her hands, she sat down on the bed looking around the room, she was impressed with the room design. She snorted angrily remembering the event that took place in the early hour of that day at her house.
EARLIER THAT DAY
There was a knock on the gate, the security quickly rush out from his quarter, he first looked through the small hole that was made on the gate and found three men standing close to the gate, he opened the gate stepping out of the compound as he closed the gate behind, this he normally does for security reasons.
“ Good morning gentle men, how may I be of help to you” he asked
“ Good morning, I am detective Lucky”, the head of the small group responded
“ we are from the Nigeria Police Headquarter, Louis Edet House” he said this as they all brought out their ID cards showing it to him, he nodded after seeing the ID cards. “ we are here to see Miss Nadia William, is she at home?”
“ yes, please come in”
He ushered them in, detective Lucky and his men walked in after thanking the security, who immediately leaded them to the front door of the house, a maid opened the door after the security rang the door bell twice, he told the maid same thing that detective Lucky said and she too allowed them inside the sitting room, the security went back to his post after that. The maid offered them seats which they declined politely, without wasting time the maid went to Elena’s room to first inform her, she will be the one to call her daughter because she didn’t know what her small ma’am has done that attracted the attention of the police.
Elena was surprised to hear that some police men was at her sitting room asking for her daughter, this was the first time such thing is happening, the maid had gently knocked on the day which was opened almost immediately, she had lower her voice as she passed the information to Elena, Elena without waking her husband as he wasn’t in any condition to handle what ever reason the officer were here for, she descended the stair with a worried look on her face, in no time she was facing the officers.
“Good morning officers” she greeted them as soon as she approached them, they in returned responded to her greeting.
“ I am Mrs Elena William, I was told that you are looking for my daughter, did anything happened?”
“ so sorry to disturb you at this early hour of the day, my name is detective Lucky, this is detective Andrew, and detective Frank, we are from the Nigeria Police Headquarter, Louis Edet House, and to answer your question, no, nothing serious happened, we are just here to ask some questions”
“ some questions?”, she asked surprisingly, she knew the officer won’t say anything until they see her daughter, she trusted her daughter so what ever reason why they were here might be a misunderstanding.
“ go call Nadia”, she ordered the maid that has been standing there all along, the maid bow and left immediately to call Nadia.
Nadia came down few minutes later surprised to see her mother up so early in the sitting room with some men she didn’t recognized, there were worries in her mother’s eyes which she wondered why. She just woke up from that same dream again, she was just about to get up from her bed to pray again as she normally does only to be stopped by a knock on the door, when she was told that her mother called for her to the sitting room, she thought it was all about her father as she rushed down stairs only to meet her mother and three men who later introduced themselves as a police officer.
“ what is going on?”, it was her turn to ask.
“ we apologize for the disturbance, we could have been here yesterday but we decided against it as it was late already when the information got to us”
“ what information?”, she asked not liking the feeling of what was happening
“ we got a call from Mr Donald, I presume you know him?” he asked looking straight at her.
“ yes of course” she answered him without hesitation, she felt something was wrong at the mention of Ethan.
“ he called yesterday reposting a breaking and entry, he said you broke into his office yesterday, is that correct”
“WHAT. I didn’t break into his office” she said surprise at what she was hearing.
“ where you on an appointment”
“ no but”
“ we have you on camera ma’am” he said interrupting her
“ Nadia, why would you go to Mr Donald office, why?” Elena asked Nadia, she was surprise and also a little disappointed in her not because she believed what the officers said but because she never expected she could be too dumb to go and see Ethan alone.
“ mum, I didn’t break in, I was allowed in, you have to believe me” she looked at her mother with pleading eyes, Elena believed her, she knew Ethan was trying to get back at her daughter for some reason he took personal, she was more interested in finding out what happened between them that will make Ethan to take such step.
“ am afraid you have to come with us to the station for more questioning”
Fear took over Nadia, she has never been to the station before, either to visit a friend or for another reason.
“ we will come with you people, but you have to give us time to properly dress up”, that was Elena that spoke, she wasn’t going to allow her daughter to go alone with some officers, she didn’t want to leave her husband but she is also her daughter, she took Nadia by the hand and headed upstairs, it wasn’t easy but she was able to convince Nadia to remain calm as she knew she was scared.
Ethan was in his room dressing up, as usual he woke up early to prepare for work, there was so much to be done as Richard wasn’t around now, and he has to get to Lagos today for Senator Philip’s party, he wish he could refuse as he knew Nina will be there but of course he couldn’t, his presence is always at parties like this as the godson of Senator Philip, and beside it has been long he saw the old man. He knew he seriously needs a new PA, his personal secretary has filled in the gape of his PA after Richard left yesterday, he could have made her his PA but he prefers men, he has already made the announcement to his human resource manager to hire someone else for him, hopefully he will get one today, it always easy to find a replacement of any employee he sack, who wouldn’t want to work in his company.
He shifts his attention to his ringing phone that was just few meters away from him, he walked to where it is, the name detective lucky was boldly written on the screen, he picked it up immediately knowing that the assignment he gave to him has been carried out.
“ we have her now in our custody “
“ good, one strand of her hair shouldn’t be touched, I repeat, not one strand, just give her some paper to sign or whatever, you know what to do”
“ of course sir”
With that he ended the call, a smirk appeared on his face as he imagined the look that will be on Nadia face now, this was just a little beginning of what he has in stock for her.
PRESENT : AT SENATOR PHILIP’S PARTY
Locating the venue Senator Philip’s party was to hold wasn’t very difficult for her, she was still inside the taxi she called to pick her up, she has been few minutes early but she still refused to step out of the car, the taxi driver wasn’t complaining as he will be well paid, there were already people that are all dress elegantly with colorful dresses, men were mostly on suits, she looked as herself thanking God that she has dressed properly and also elegantly.
It has been an hours that she has arrived, she doesn’t know why she was still in the car, was she nervous?, she just couldn’t tell but there was this feeling in her stomach and she just don’t understands it, taking a deep breath she came down from the car and headed to the party, she has already paid the taxi driver few minutes ago when he was getting impatient, she has to pay him to keep his mouth shut, the party was held in one of the five stars hotel in Lagos, stepping into the reception hall after she has shown the security her invitation card. The place was already filled with people of different status, truly this is one big man’s party, now without wasting more time she set out to find senator Philip, she really needs to get everything done, she walked around observing her surrounding very carefully as she wouldn’t want to run into Ethan, her Long Gold Silver Sequins dress with a slash neck matched perfectly on her body bringing and putting her curves in their right places, with a silver heel, a silver purse and silver earrings, necklace and bracelet to go with it, she allowed her Brazilian body wave loose, she did a little makeup bringing out a beauty.
After few minutes of searching , she saw him, Senator Philip, the man she has been looking for talking to one of his guests with a bond smile on his face, “ this is a great opportunity for me” she murmured to herself, taking a step she walked to Senator Philip, who has just finished talking with the guest as he made to move away from them, but Nadia approached him stopping him.
“ good evening, Senator Philip”, she said with a warm smile on her face, extending her hand to him which he shook lightly also with a smile
“ hello there, you are…” he Responded staring into the familiar beautiful face
“ oh forgive my manners, am Nadia William, daughter to the owner of Rockage cooperation”
“ oh, nice to meet you young lady” , he had thought that she was one of the girls that had accompanied some of his men friends to the party but she just proved him wrong,
“ we have meet before at a conference meeting five months ago in Dubai”
Just then he remembered her, though they didn’t exchange any words that day, he has been impressed by her little presentation she did for who he guessed was the company she works for.
“ nice to meet you again, though this isn’t a conducive moment to talk I am still very happy to see you, how are you enjoying the party”
“ oh the party is great, thank you for asking”
“ no need for that, I am the host after all, I will love to see you again that’s if you don’t mind”
Don’t mind, I so don’t mind “ not at all”
“ good, this is my personal card, do call me so we can sit and talk” he said giving her his card he has brought out of his suit pocket, she collected it from him happily
“ I will give you a call sir”
“ will be expecting it, I have to leave you now, I have other guests to attend to, do have a nice night”
He walked away after saying this with Nadia only nodding, she was so surprised as how things went, she had thought it will be difficult but God was on her side, she looked at the card in her hand, smiling inwardly, “ I will so call you, sir”, she said this putting it in her purse, now she needs to get out of here, there was nothing she was doing here and she don’t want to come face with Ethan, she quickly made her way out of the place, without looking where she was going as she walked hurriedly only to bumped into the hard back of someone, it was definitely a male judging from how hard and bond the back is,
“ am so sorry, so so sorry….” She held her breath as the eyes of the only one she didn’t want to see burned through her eyes, so much for not running into him.
