I fucked Rose like a starving man.. I ate her up! I'm currently enjoying my post coital daze and i watched her sleep in peace..
She was the hottest lay i ever had in my life.. I ran my hands through her hair and looked down at her sleeping form.. I felt tenderness wash through me for her.. The feeling coiled deep in my gut and i appreciated God for bringing her into my life.. I'm sincerely lucky to have her.. I picked up my phone and called the detective in charge of my wife's murder case..
"Yes, professor Yemi, i was about Calling you.. There is a new lead in the investigation we are carrying out.. We found some hair samples on your wife that were not hers.. We are running that for analysis but we had a witness who came up to tell us about a car that was a street away.." I sat up in excitement.. Really? "Yes, I'm listening.." "The car was parked a street away, and the eye witness took note because of the haste at which she came and went. Also, there were blood stains on her clothes when she drove off.. The eye witness described the car and we even have a picture of the car.. I'd send it to your mail now.."
I felt my heart beat in joy.. I'd given up hope that my wife's murderer will go free.. This lead is a major one.."Thank you detective.. I'm grateful.. "The investigations carried out showed that the car belonged to a Rose Tomiwa.. Do you know anybody by that name? She's a major lead right now.." The phone dropped from my grasp and i felt my heart go ice cold..
Rose?! I stood up from the bed and went out of the room.. I locked the door from outside. "Detective sir, this rose is currently in my house... Fuck!" "Ok. I'm coming over right now.. Ensure she doesn't leave..." The line went dead. I felt dread wrap around me. I'm icy cold. My daughter!! Tiwa! I dialled the hospital.. I'm feeling so torn. I can't leave because the detectives are coming.. I need to see tiwa!! I went into the living room and sat down heavily... I logged on to my email and downloaded the image.. I confirmed it.
It was Tiwas car.
The detective came over and i directed him upstairs. "Arrest her sir!.. Don't even listen to whatever she says.. I'm sure she poisoned my daughter!!!" Everything began to click into place. She killed Ivy, she tried to kill Tiwa too! I felt bitterness fill me.. I've been living with evil personified.. Id been lusting after the bane of all my problems.. I even made love to her! I left the house and rushed to the hospital..
I woke up with a delicious feeling.. Sated and satisfied.. I smiled happily.. At last.. My dream man is going to be mine.. I touched the bed then opened my eyes.. His side of the bed is cold.. "What happened..."Yemi.. Where are you? We need to go the hospital and see tiwa.."
I heard the door lock click and i turned back.. "Yemi..." I stopped short at the person who entered.. It was a stranger i didn't recognise.."Miss Rose?" ..i hastily put on a robe.."yes? Who are you? Where is yemi?" I felt fear slam into me.. "Who are you?!" I screamed.."Calm down ma'am. I'm Johnson, the detective investigating Mrs Akinyemis death".. He flashed his badge.
"Prof is off to the hospital to see his daughter, kindly follow me to the station for questioning.." I looked at him in astonishment.."but what is.." "Kindly cooperate ma'am and stay silent. Get dressed and lets go" he said firmly. I looked at him and quickly wore my clothes.. He didn't even turn his back. I kept my mouth shut and quietly followed him.
I rushed to the hospital and i was allowed to see my little princess.."she's a very lucky girl.. She could have died you know?"... I rushed to her bedside.. The doctor left the room to give us some privacy.."dad...ddy..what ha..ppened.." She said weakly.. I gently touched her head.."you'd be fine my dear..just relax.. Don't say anything.." I felt my throat clog with tears.. I can't believe Rose did all this..and i fell for her badly.. Tiwa drifted off to sleep and i left her room.
I call came in from the detective.."She's still being questioned, but she denied it all. In fact, the image I went to collect from the sketch artist provided from the eyewitness description does not match her. This is very puzzling to me. It's like someone took her car to carry out the crime. I handed her case over to my colleague while i went out to get the image. I'm not at the station right now but I'm almost there. I suggest you come down to the station to identify the person, and i also hope Miss rose can assist. It's possible she knows the person". What?! I rushed out of the hospital in shock.
All the questions asked pointed to the fact that they think i murdered Ivy!. What nonsense! I burst into tears at the pain that engulfed me. I can't believe that all my support and effort meant nothing to Yemi. How can he believe that of me?! And who took my car?! What nonsense...
I was so distraught and not thinking straight. What if i get accused of murder?! I need to call my dad.. I stood up and stopped in shock. Sarah was standing at the door.. She rushed in and hugged me.. I melted into her and felt comforted at her presence.. "I just finished speaking to my colleague.. The image from the sketch artist doesn't match your description.." "She can leave now right?!" Sarah said harshly.."yes, but.."
"Yes but nothing! You've accused an innocent woman of something she didn't do! And infact she's not arrested, she only came in for questioning! So we can damn well leave!" She grabbed my hand and we walked out of the station in a rush.. "Wait, what are you doing?" I asked.."No time to explain, get in the car.." I entered and we zoomed off.. Too late I realized it was my car! "How did you get my car? How did you know where i was?! I never called you..
I drove down to the station in haste.. I saw the detective also driving in.. Something caught my attention, but i gave it no mind.. I rushed down to the detective's car.. "Show me the picture.."i barked.. He gave it to me and what i suspected was confirmed. Sarah is the one behind it all.. "This is Sarah, Rose's best friend! I rushed into the station.."where's rose ?! I asked the police man at the counter.. "She just left with her friend now.."
"This woman?!" I showed him the picture.."Yes.. But what.."But nothing" i screamed. "You just handed her over to the killer"..I rushed out of the station! Fuck! What caught my attention was Rose's car driving out of the station, but i paid it no mind.. Shit! Sarah is behind all this. I drove out like a mad man; i have to get her. I gave my hacker friend a desperate call.. "I need the location of the car number.." I rattled off her car plates.. "On it.. Satellite tracking will work.." "I don't give a fuck how you do it! Just find that car now!"...
"You fucking bitch!!! You ruined everything.. I had killed his wife and the daughter.. Then you went ahead to spoil everything!! I love Yemi. I'd been in love with him!!! You came home and painted the perfect image of a perfect Man for me everyday!! Tell me why i won't love him?! Tell me why i won't want him?! He's the only one capable of loving me!!! She screamed like a banshee.. While looking around madly.. The car was swerving crazily on the road and I'm scared she'd drive us both to our deaths.."but why sarah?! Why did you kill his wife?!" "Shut up!! I had to kill everyone standing in my path!!! I'd already framed you for the daughters murder.. And the wife too.. You would have been out of the picture!! It would just be I and Yemi and We'd live happily ever after!!!.. Yes! I took your car keys!! Yes!! I did it all!"
i looked at her in shock.."but he didn't even ask you out!".." I don't care!! He's mine!! I did it all to clear away any distractions that may not make him see me.. Ivy and Tiwa were blocking his view!!! Then, you too! You bitch!! You wanted to steal my Man?!" She asked in a broken whisper while tears streamed down her face.. "You wanted to steal my happiness!!! You've always been so jealous of me.." I looked at her in fear.. She was spewing utter nonsense.. It's like her mind broke.. She was driving like a blind person.. "Please, calm down sarah.. We will resolve this.. Yemi is all yours now.."
"Don't deceive me!!!..We will die together today!! If I can't have him! You won't too!! Nobody will!! I hate you!! You crazy bitch.. You stole my mind.. We were almost together!!!" She cried.. She screamed and looked forward.. A bus hit us squarely and the last thing i thought of was how Yemi will never know I'm innocent...
I found the car almost bent into two.. I parked and rushed down to it.. The emergency unit had already brought the both of them out of the car.. Sarah died and Rose is in a Coma.. I felt pain hit me..
Tiwa became better and confirmed that Sarah came earlier to her school to give her a drink..
The DNA result of the hair test matched Sarah perfectly..
Rose was pronounced brain dead and euthanasia was recommended.. But i refused her parents and brought her home where i bought all the equipments money can buy to keep her alive.. I and Tiwa prayed everyday for her survival.. We watched her die slowly before our eyes.. She became cold and ghostly white.. Her muscles wasted away..
After 5 years.. I decided to give up. She was all but dead.. I'm dead in my soul anyway.. The obsession of a woman i barely knew stole the love of 2 women entirely from me.. When she wakes up, she'd have years of physical therapy and have to learn how to do everything again..
Everybody was present for it. The moment the plug was to be pulled, I saw a twitch. "Wait!!! " i screamed.. I looked intently.. And saw a twitch again.. Her eyelids fluttered.."Yemi..." She said..And she brought me to my knees..
I was restored.
