The Immortals’ Code #19

A FEW MINUTES BEFORE ISHI WAS KIDNAPPED/ ISHI’S NEIGHBORHOOD “Send me a picture of what you’re wearing, baby. I’ve had a rough day and I need to ease my mind.” “You’re such a perv, Leo. I’m pregnant. That shouldn’t turn you on in any way. Besides, I’m tying that wrapper you don’t like.” “Nice.” Leonel smiled. He was sitting in his Jaguar XF across the street from Ishi’s house. With one hand typing a message and the other holding a burger, he kept Kyenpia on the line via the car’s handsfree. “So I read this stuff on the internet about something that can help your difficult pregnancy…” “Yeah? What?” “Don’t laugh.” Leonel chuckled. “I already suspect that it’s something nasty.” “Semen. Taken orally.” Kyenpia hissed. “Didn’t I just call you a pervert?” “It also helps induce labor too.” “Leonel, it’s never ever gonna happen. “Hey, I didn’t make it up.…

Read Previous Episodes Of  The Immortals’ Code “Sorry, I had to do this, Hamza,” Lanre said, going behind Hamza to untie him from the chair that had held him captive for nine hours. “It was necessary.” Hamza was silent. He didn’t really have anything to say to Lanre. So much had ensued in the past forty-eight hours that his brain was still reeling from the shock of information and happenings that he didn’t have the staying power to voice out what was on his mind. He massaged his sore wrists and wiggled his feet to restore the flow of blood as Lanre stood before him again. “I had to do a serious background check on you to find out relevant information that would help in my investigations. First I needed to know if you were sent by someone.” “I was not,” Hamza said in his defense. “Second, I needed to…

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…
