The Immortals' Code

The Immortal’s Code #7

Read Previous Episodes Of The Immortals’ Code THE MORNING AFTER TINA DIED Desire rubbed her eyes tiredly as she followed Hamza into his house. She forced out a stiff yawn and was tempted to drop into the nearest couch for a nap but she remembered she had to push Hamza into packing up a few things for his escape. It was seven in the morning and she felt they had taken enough risks already. She had used her limitless connections and gotten someone to allow them access to Tina’s corpse even though she knew showing their faces at the hospital at daylight was stupid and unprofessional of her. But Hamza had insisted on seeing Tina and there was nothing Desire could do about it. On their way out of the hospital, she called one of her contacts to confirm a flight for Hamza that was leaving for Helsinki at 10am. A…

The Immortals’ Code #6

Read Previous Episodes Of The Immortals’ Code GENERAL ABIODUN’S RESIDENCE Chioma was dazed. She couldn’t speak; she could hardly move a muscle. Her eyes sore and gritty from extreme crying, drowsed against her will as she sat sandwiched between her sister and her best friend who were both holding her hands and also crying intensely. A nurse had injected her earlier with something to put her to sleep but Chioma hadn’t yet succumbed to the drug. “How can I when my child’s body is still warm?” she asked into the air. No one replied her. They were now used to the short questions she asked herself every now and then. The tranquilizing drug in her bloodstream dragged her into an unwilling yawn and she became angry at herself for giving in to it. The only thing her weary eyes wanted to do was cry for her child. And cry she…

The Immortals’ Code #5

Read previous episodes of The Immortals’ Code THE NIGHT TINA DIED Desire and Ramsey were standing on top of a thick, green lawn that stretched over a large mass of land. To their left was a swimming pool filled with dirty water and covered with brown leaves from a large tree that stood in a corner not far away. To the right, the lawn continued and came to stop before a small, winding picket fence protecting a botanical garden. Alongside the fence were small Asian lampposts that lined a thin, straight macadam path coming from a three-storey house towering the entire area. Ramsey was holding a handgun and he pointed aimlessly at things around him as his other hand pulled at the crotch of his jean. “I feel like shooting something,” he said restlessly and aimed the huge tree by the swimming pool. “Please don’t,” Desire scarcely replied when…

The Immortals’ Code #4

Read Previous Episodes of The Immortals’ Code CAPTAIN’S RESDIDENCE/ PRESENT DAY Desire endured a full body search at the gate before she was allowed into Captain’s private quarters. It was a chalet, different from where he officially lived. People were hardly allowed into this part of the mansion but Desire had unlimited access. She walked with short, hurried steps to the front entrance where a soldier let her in. She was told Captain was in his study and would be available shortly. With hands on her waist, she rounded the small anteroom and listened as guard dogs in the distance tried to outdo each other in a howling contest. The anteroom was dimly lit with expensive but dark furnishings. There was a black statue of a naked woman with an external bleeding heart—a dark version of the Madonna—and it stood beside a smaller statue of a naked man stretched out…

The Immortals’ Code #3

Morning everyone, I want to apologize to those who didn’t get their notification for Saturday’s post. My modem was stolen right from my bag while I was doing last edits on the post on my way home from a meeting. And I lost some cash as well. Oh well, that’s life. So I posted with my old BB phone and that felt like filling a bucket with water using a spoon. Lol! But it’s all good. Enjoy today’s episode. “Can I smoke?” Desire asked as Leonel put his jeep into gear and exited the premises of the building complex they had just emerged from. They had left Lanre behind with Sugar’s corpse and if Leonel’s calculations were exact, the police were going to be on the scene in less than ten minutes. The noon sun was cast overhead but it was shy and remained veiled behind thick clouds, leaving the…

The Immortals’ Code #2

Read the first episode of The Immortals’ Code LAGOS/ 2013 Judith couldn’t sleep. She turned restlessly in bed, feeling a familiar ache in her lower back with each movement. She wasn’t so sure she knew why she was restless. It wasn’t Luke’s bed; she was quite used to it by now. And it also wasn’t the fact that he didn’t use any type of cooling system in his room either, since the weather was quite breezy. Maybe it was the noise coming from the basketball court below where her son, Ramsey, was playing a one-on-one game with his childhood friend, Desire, whom he had not seen in a while. They were screaming at the top of their lungs, shattering the quiet of the house, and Judith was sure they were going to have Luke ordering them to be silent soon. Still it wasn’t their noise that made her restless. She…

The Immortals’ Code #1

The Immortals’ Code is for those who haven’t read it, for those who asked that this particular version be restored and for those who wonder if I can write something intriguing that is not entirely romance. Well you’re in for a ride. Enjoy!  One who contends with immortals lives a very short life  Greek poet 9th-8th century BC KANO/ 1989 Little Nafisa, trying hard to steady her schoolbag under her left arm, looked at the school gate with searching eyes and frowned. As expected, there was no one to pick her – again. No, this was again, raised to the power of 11. She smiled at herself proudly, remembering the knowledge she casually acquired from a senior class earlier that morning. ‘Wait let me get a double promotion to primary five and we’ll see if anybody can touch me!’ She smiled for a second time, then hissed and frowned when…
