If You Missed The Part 11, Read It Here
Eniola fidgeted as she watched Lois untie her gags.
“Now..” Lois began, shoving her into a waiting car.
“behave yourself when we get to the airport okay?”
“Good, and remember, I’m your mother.” Lois added.
Eniola gave her a sweet smile that made her wonder if she’s alright.
“Where is the aeroplane taking us to? Heaven?” Eniola asked as they both sat down at the airport, waiting for boarding announcement.
“We’re going to Italy, its a fine place, you’ll meet fine kids too.” Lois patted her.
“Uhm, so you’ll be my mummy?” Eniola asked again.
Eniola fell silent, she studied almost everything around her, her palms, fingers and toes, the ceiling, the passers-by and all.
She tugged at Lois wig…
“Hey stop that!” Lois pushed her hands roughly.
“Your hair is ugly o” Eniola said laughing.
Just then, the boarding announcement was made. Lois picked her handbag, she was already at the tarmac when she realised Eniola isn’t with her. She searched round and found her playing with some flowers.
“Come here naughty girl.” she pulled Eniola’s cheek.
“I’m not naughty! My mummy said I’m a princess.” Eniola pouted.
Lois sensed trouble.
“Now come baby, lets go, I’ve got some chocolates here for you.” she said gently.
“Awww! My mummy said chocolates will make my teeth rotten.” Eniola replied
“Okay, can we go?” Lois was impatient.
“No! Take me back to my mummy!” Eniola yelled, drawing some attention from people around.
“Shhh! Now girl, don’t act funny, okay? Lets go.” Lois told her in a hush tone.
“I don’t want your Italy! I want my mummy! You called me naughty! I won’t follow you again!” Eniola screamed at her.
Lois looked around, they were creating a scene, a little crowd had gathered. She quickly made a face at Eniola.
“Stop doing that face for me jor! Its not even fine!” Eniola pouted again.
“hey! What’s going on here?” a huge man walked up to them.
“my daughter is just acting funny, and we have to board the plane now” Lois explained looking nervous.
“C’mon pretty, your momma is running late.” The man told Eniola.
“She’s not my momma! I don’t know her.” Eniola snapped,
The man glanced at Lois then back at Eniola. Lois quickly pinched Eniola’s arm
“Stop pinching me!” Eniola shrieked angrily.
“Take me back to my mother!” she placed her tiny palms on her eyes and began to cry.
“Don’t mind her o, it’s child’s talk.” Lois laughed nervously.
“Please sir..” Eniola moved closer to the man.
“My name is Eniola David,my mother’s name is Tejumola Benson, I don’t know this woman! I don’t like her!” she whimped.
Lois knew her game was up.
“Errm, actually, I’m taking her overseas for treatment, she has mental disorder” she explained.
“Really? Well, you have to forego this flight.” the man said sternly.
“I’m Richard Roy. A security officer. I need to confirm some things.” he showed her his ID card.
“What’s your name?” he asked Lois
“Tejumola Benson.” she replied quickly.
“Liar!” Eniola shrieked
“Her name is Lois o!”
Richard looked at Eniola searchingly, the girl looked lost.
“Sir, she brought me here o! I don’t know my way home, I could have gone since. They tied my hands and legs with ropes, they even put something in my mouth!” Eniola rattled like a magpie
“really?” Richard squatted to view her more closely.
“Yes o! My mother has a shop in the market. The name of my school is Blessed Stars primary school.” Eniola explained again.
“Please sir take me home, I want my mummy, I don’t want Italy!” she resumed crying again.
Richard spoke into a reciever, some security men moved to where they were.
“Arrest this woman.” he told them.
“Detain her, till you get further orders from me.” he instructed.
“get me a car and some men, we’re going to Blessed stars primary school.” he ordered
“I’m innocent o” Lois squeaked as she was led away.
“yes you are! Everyone in Italy is innocent!” Richard chuckled.
He picked up Eniola and walked towards a waiting car.
“I don’t think I can survive my daughter’s absence.” I whispered to David.
“I’d become lonely without her…” I wiped a tear.
“I’ve gat no one than her, she’s my father,mother, husband, daughter and friend, she’s all I’ve got, the only fountain my joy springs from.”
“C’mon, stop talking that way, she’d be fine, besides I’m her for you.” David wiped my tears with a handkerchief.
I looked away.
“I’m trying to believe that she’s fine, its just that, I think she’s in danger.” I told him, hugging Eniola’s picture.
Just then, his phone rang.
“Hello?” David said. He listened for a while.
“Okay, Inspector, I’d be on my way now. Yes, say 15 mins I’d be there.”
“my attention is needed at the police station.” he explained to me.
“You don’t need to come along, just rest okay?” he peered at me
I nodded quickly.
He searched my eyes for a while.
“please don’t do anything funny while I’m away, okay? Or would you come along?” he suspected something
“Oh no, I’l be fine, don’t worry.” I wore a plastic smile.
“just take care.” he hesitated.
“Bye! Go now!” I shoved him to the door of my room.
“Good riddance!” I whispered after he’s gone.
I quickly wrote a note to life, read my Bible, prayed to God for forgiveness before launching my target.
I sneaked out of the compound to avoid Mummy Tola’s interrogations.
I walked swiftly, looking around at intervals as though someone might see me.
The pond was few matres away, thank God I wasn’t a good swimmer, I’d just drown quitely, and then find myself in Heaven or hell after a few moments.
