DILUTED Bullet-Last Chapter


DILUTED Bullet-Chapter40

Theme: Weeping Love



Gina’s p.o.v

The doctor laid more emphasis on the sedative drug among the drugs he prescribed, he said Ben woke up too early and need to sleep more for the first week so as to avoid future complications.
I made sure I added two capsules as the doctor instructed to the drugs I gave to him for usage.
After little chit chat, he finally black out.
Seeing him sleep was one of the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.
He didn’t look like someone who just woke from coma, he looked like he’s been healthy for many days ago.
I traced his lips with my index finger as I felt the urge to kiss him but fought hard to resist it.
I remembered that we almost kissed earlier if not for the interruption made by Tabitha.
” looks like it isn’t an unrequited love after all” I said to myself smiling as I pecked his cheek.
My plan for us to move out of the country had been placed on hold because of how he woke up two weeks ago.
My dad said he doesn’t need it again since doctor Ranking confirmed he’s going to wake up soon, which he really did.
I was sure my dad was still planning on sending me out of the country and that might happen without Ben following me, so I decided to play some of my cards so as to get me and Ben out of the country soon.
I took my bath, changed my cloth which I forgot to change from into my nightie the other night.
I felt fulfilled as I stared at Ben who was still sleeping peacefully.
I smiled as I picked my phone and exit the room to my dad’s place so as to inform him of my plan.
It was the usual greeting scheme I always receive that I receive as I walked on the walkway to my dad’s door.
I saw Wisdom at the entrance going through the security routine for anyone who was going to visit my kid.
He had in his hand a file, I wanted to turn back but he suddenly wave at me before I could turn and escape.
I’ve been trying to avoid a situation where I’m going to be facing him one on one after the ordeal that occured last time I was drunk.
I remembered everything like a flashback, and my dad never cease to tease me with it because I told him what happened
I don’t keep anything from him.
I feigned a straight face as I moved closer to him.
” good morning ma’am” he greeted with a smile that was only visible to me because it wasn’t glaring on his face.
” morning” I replied him.
I didn’t allow him go through the stress of been scanned over and over again as it took only my finger print and retina to gain access into my dad’s living room.
” my angel” dad said as he saw me, he was at his normal position watching the TV with a warm cup of tea in his front but Mr Wealth was absent.
Dad like taking tea in the morning with Mr Wealth.
” oh, sit down Wisdom” he motioned to Wisdom who was behind me pointing his hand to the normal position Mr Wisdom always take when he’s with my dad for tea.
” what of your angel” I said sulkily.
” your position is here” he said smiling, patting his lap.
” bring him a cup of tea” he said to one of the guards inside the room.
” or you prefer coffee” he asked Wisdom.
” no, I’m okay with the tea sir ” Wisdom replied.
” okay, get him that” dad said to the guard who had paused to listen to Wisdom choice.
” so who should I ask to go first” dad said taking a sip from his tea.
” go first as how” I asked dad surprised, as I stood transfixed at the spot I was.
” Wisdom here had requested an audience with me, that’s why I decided to have tea with him instead with Mr Wealth, his dad and I know you’re not here this morning to chit chat with your dad, I know you more to know that” he said teasingly as he smiled and Wisdom snorted, fighting the urge to laugh.
” dad” I screamed loudly.
” deal with him first, I’m going to stand here till you’re through with him” I said folding my hand.
” sooth yourself” my dad said with an indifferent tone and I sulk at once and he pretended not to notice.
” maybe I should come back sir” Wisdom said making an attempt to stand up.
” sit back young man, don’t mind her, just tell me what you want to tell me, we’re going to sort ourselves out later” my dad said as he placed his mug cup into his mouth for a sip, he swiftly used the moment to give me a quick glance as he snort before he dropped the cup..
” I think I should come back sir” Wisdom politely said but, the guard returned with the tea at that moment and placed it in front of Wisdom.
” now you can’t leave, just tell me what you’ve to say” my dad said to Wisdom.
Wisdom first took a glance at me before he handed the file in his hand to my dad.
” I think Mr Ben is a spy and assassin who was sent here to harm you” Wisdom said to my dad who looked engrossed in looking at the file in his hand.
” I think we need to arrest him right away” he added as he swiftly stole a glance at me.
I was sure none of the two of them notice when I made my way out of the room.
I scampered to the elevator with a hurt soul.
I was unstable, and couldn’t concentrate on anything as I hit the call button for the elevator.
I couldn’t believe what I heard, no, I refused to believe it, my breathing became ragged as the elevator took decades before getting to the first floor.
” What’s wrong with you” Tabitha asked me but I was too disorganized to reply her.
” is Ben awake” I asked not waiting for an answer as I moved to the door, inserted my password and got my thumb and retina scanned before the door unlocked.
I opened the door and saw the Ben sitting on the bed.
” are you really a spy and assassin sent to hurt my dad ” I asked him with a worried countenance as I entered.
” yeah” he replied bluntly making the world collapse around me.
” no, you’re joking right” I cried as I felt my leg loose its strength, had to support myself by leaning against the shut door in order to avoid falling down

Narrator’s p.o.v.
” I’m sorry” Ben said with a melancholic tone.
” no, shut the f--k up, I love you but you’re only using m as a bait so that you can harm my dad” Gina screamed as tears rolled down in torrent down her beautiful face.
” yeah, I use you so that I can get closer to the president, I wanted to harm him and was waiting for the right information to do so” Ben said standing up and started moving closer to Gina.
” I was going to use you to explore your dad’s weakness as the mission I was given, I made you fall for me in order to achieve this but” Ben paused as he held Gina by her arm.
” but I fell for you in the course, I love you but can’t reveal it because I have to protect you” Ben said staring into Gina’s eye.
” the organization I work for wouldn’t spare you after they know that you know this because I’m sure they already know but even though I’m not worthy of asking anything from you but please grant me the permission to save you” Ben said as he held Gina’s shaking hands.
” leave me” Gina screamed withdrawing her hand.
” you think you can sweet talk me so that you can escape, but hell no, you’re going to pay for your sin” Gina added as she swiftly tried to open the door.
” no, don’t” Ben said as he swiftly dragged her away from the door, and pushed her on the bed.
” what are you doing” Gina screamed.
” shh” Ben motioned to Gina.
” they’re already here” Ben added.
” who” Gina asked curiously.
” someone like me, he or she is already outside, behind that door, ready to eliminate the two of us” Ben replied.
” I’m not falling for that lie, you’re the only threat here and you can go on to kill me because I’m getting out of this room, I’m sick of seeing your face” Gina said making attempt to get down from the bed.
” please believe me, even tho I don’t worth it but please do , all I want is your safety, please” Ben said with a pleading tone.
” I can’t again, I can’t believe you, I’m sorry” Gina said as she shrugged Ben off and got down the bed.
” it’s not my fault that I’m what I’m now, imagine been taken from a kid and forged into a bloodthirsty killer, I don’t want your sympathy but everyone deserve a second chance at redemption, I’ve killed many people but please let me redeem myself by saving your life, you going out of that door is death, the killer is already there waiting for you to come out” Ben said halting Gina’s almost carried out action to open the door.
” I’m going to trust you for the last time but don’t think I fell for all the lie you voiced out.” Gina said moving back to Ben.
” I think I should call my dad to send in the guards” Gina said bringing out her phone.
” what’s wrong with this” she said frustratingly as she tried to access it but couldn’t.
” it’s been clogged” Ben said to her.
” what” she exclaimed
” by you right, I shouldn’t have trust you” she added with a tone that depicted she’s getting scared.
” I didn’t do that, they’ve disconnected all means of communication in this building, and we’re going to die if we don’t do anything now ” he said to her collecting the phone from her.
” now you’ve to tell me the truth” Ben said to her staring at her.
” the tattoo you saw on my back is from my organization, tattooed on our back to portray who we really are, a duplicate of that tattoo can’t be seen on anyone except the agent, so please, is the tattoo you saw an image portraying a Flea” he asked and she twitched.
” no, this can’t be happening, it can’t be” she said with a disbelieving tone.
” she can’t be part of you and if she’s, you would have recognized her.” Gina said with a tone that depicted she doesn’t believe or doesn’t want to believe Ben
” who and all the agent from my organization don’t know each other, we’re all anonymous worker. So please tell me who it is” Ben said almost screaming at her.
” Tabitha” she whispered.
Just then, the beeping sound from her door started sounding.
” she knows the password and she has the permission to enter here” Gina said fidgeting.
” get down” Ben ordered her.
” push the bed” Ben ordered Gina and with force, they swiftly push the bed to serve as barrier to the door.
The bed was pushed at the back of the door same time Tabitha’s information was accepted by the door scanner .
” that’s close” Gina said smiling to Ben as she breath heavily.
Tabitha tried to open the door but couldn’t as Ben and Gina made sure they’re also pushing the bed to stay in place.
” what are we doing next” Gina asked in a whisper.
” I don’t know” Ben replied with a frustrated tone.
” I can’t take her on like this, I’m still weak” Ben added with a worried look.
“Her!” Gina exclaimed
” it’s just an assumption, we are not sure if she is the one ” she added staring at Ben.
” I’m sure she’s the one behind that door” Ben retorted.
” in trouble so soon, looks like you really need me to stay out of trouble” the TV suddenly came on displaying Snap’s image
” oh brother, you’re the best” Ben said heaving a sigh of relief.
” see whining, rubbish, hi there” Snap said waving to Gina who still looked dumbfounded at what’s happening.
” looks like she’s shock, hello, I’m going to text you Ben location, get there before 10 or lose him” Snap added making a motion as if he’s on call.
” you’re the one with one who snitched Ben’s location then” Gina said snapping back to reality.
” look, we don’t have time to get frenzy now, are you aware of the situation outside this room” Ben asked Snap.
” nope and yes, because the mask has sabotage all the gadgets in this castle, even to all the CCTV inside the building” Snap replied.
” but you said yes, which means you’ve found a way to also get a bite at it” Ben retorted.
” yeah but I can’t share you the footage from here, am here with only my phone, no laptop to hack, just my phone” Snap replied.
” are you not in Nigeria yet” Ben asked looking surprise.
” yeah, my flight had to do emergency landing in Trinidad and Tobago because of bad weather but here’s the situation, there’s over hundred securities in the perimeter ranging from army to the police, including navy and the local David Guard, they’ve been trying to get to the first floor but the elevator has been deactivated by the mask agent aiming for your life “he said as he munched on a burger in his hand and drank a can soda.
He let out a teasing smile when he saw how I was looking at him.
” how can you be calm in this kind of situation” Ben asked glaring at him.
” because you’ve done worse in many worse situation” he replied smiling.
” we’re going to settle this later but how am I getting outta here” Ben asked him.
” I’m activating the elevator in the next three,two, one, zero second, activated, now you know what to do, and get a headset and connect it to Gina’s phone, I’m going to serve as your eye with it ” he said winking at Ben .
” but it’s not working and what do you mean by he knows what to do” Gina asked, speaking since a long time.
” he’s going to explain that to you, and I’ve activated your phone, bye” he said waving at Ben as he took a big bite from the burger in his hand
” please before you go, who’s the agent trying to kill me” Gina asked pleadingly.
” your personal maid, she’s one of the greatest agent known as flea , she’s been placed with you more than three years ago ”
” just know that I’m killing you if I escape here alive” Ben swiftly said as he noticed tears dropping from Gina’s eye.
” I pray you get caught then” Snap said to Ben smiling as the TV went off.
” I know I’m not in the position to say this right now but I need your help and I’m sorry ” Ben said as he used his palm to clean the tears on Gina’s face.
” with my phone right” Gina asked brushing his hand away.
” yeah, and, and, what’s going to happen in the next few minutes” Ben said with a melancholic tone.
” just know that this is for you, and your safety” Ben added staring at Gina.
Gina gave Ben her wireless headset and connected it to her phone, which she also gave Ben.
” are they inside” Ben heard Wisdom asked Tabitha from outside.
” yeah, I think he’s hurting her, I’ve been trying to enter but I think he’s bar the door from inside ” Tabitha replied Wisdom.
” listen everyone, we’re forcing our way in, our priority is to save the president daughter, she must not get hurt and as for the spy inside with her, kill him if he get violent” Wisdom ordered whoever it is that were with him.
” I’m sorry” Ben said to Gina as he swiftly grabbed her, pin her neck to his chest with his elbow as he placed a nail cutter which he snooped from Gina’s make up kit on her neck.
” your hands up” Wisdom ordered as he entered with some guys in black suit as the bed was successfully gotten away from the door.
” drop all your weapon or I kill her” Ben threatened as he pressed the nail cutter to Gina’s neck.
Gina whimpered as blood came out of her neck.
” drop your weapons” Wisdom ordered the securities.
” don’t dare it” Ben said as he pushed the nail cutter in more.
” I’m sorry” one of guard who was trying to target Ben’s arm said swiftly dropping g the gun.
” make way” Ben ordered as he started moving closer to them and they obeyed .
” don’t open the door in the next three minute or I kill her.” Ben threatened as he was out of When he was out of the room and he shut the door.
” open the elevator” Ben ordered Snap through the headset as he stood in front of the elevator, hitting the call button but it refused to open.
” I’m going to the sixth floor” he added as the elevator door opened and he entered it with Gina.
” I’m sorry love” Ben pleaded as he removed the nail cutter from Gina’s neck but Gina didn’t utter any word.
The elevator opened on the sixth floor and Ben swiftly dash to where he kept all his weapons.
” what”! Gina exclaimed when she saw all the ammunitions in Ben’s hand. Tho he has already tucked in some of the guns into his band trouser and some gadgets in his pocket.
” I’m sorry” Ben said as he dragged her into the elevator.
” the last floor, what’s the situation there” Ben asked.
” all the uniforms outside are all ready to shoot, some are inside the large room while some her hiding, by your 8 o clock, two army are behind the big flower vase, from the north, behind the two pillars facing the exit, a navy is aiming a 0.43 range clocker sniper at the elevator, he must be eliminated as he’s the only threat for now” Snap said to Ben now with full seriousness.
” thanks, now let take the party down” Ben said as he hooked Gina to his chest and placed a pistol to her head.
The elevator door opened and everyone aimed their guns at the elevator.
Ben shot at once and in the blink of an eye, a navy officer with a sniper in his hand was laying dead with a bullet lodge in his skull.
” the two of you behind the vase should come out easily now or meet the same fate” Ben threatened shooting towards the direction .
Gina was whimpering as shot was been released from Ben’s gun.
” shut up you b---h” Ben screamed at Gina.
” now I want all guns down before the count of ten or I’m going to kill her and trust me, I don’t mind dying” Ben threatened as he placed the gun on Gina’s head.
” 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8″ Ben counted, all the police inside the room had already dropped their guns but the navy and the army refused to do so as they looked ready to shoot.
” 9, 10″ Ben read loud as he made an attempt to pull the trigger.
” all guns down” Mr David screamed as the second elevator door opened with Wisdom behind him.
After few act of reluctance, they all dropped their guns.
” good one Mr president, now you’ve to prepare a car for me outside and make sure their is no living things except plant outside” Ben said facing the president.
” I’m going to do all you ask for but please release my daughter to me, I promise you that you’re going to get out of here” Mr David said fidgeting.
” you’ve up to a minute to do what I asked” Ben retorted with a bashing tone.
” get him a car now” the president ordered Wisdom who ran out of the large sitting room with two guards following behind him.
” make sure you aim at his hand, don’t miss” wisdom told one of the guard after he has parked an Audi in the large compound.
” take your place behind that wall there so that you can get a clear shot” wisdom added before he returned to the room.
” it’s done sir” Wisdom said as he returned to the large room where all the forces were all transfixed to their position.
” the guy you ordered to stay behind the wall, if you like him, ask him to run for his life now” Ben said to no one in particular as he held Gina at gun point and started moving to the exit.
” to your right, three steps backward, 0.98 metres, someone is aiming at you” Snap told Ben through the headset and a shot goes off at once.
A soldier with gun in his hand pointed towards Ben fell down at once.
” don’t try me” Ben said as some of the soldier’s comrade rushed to the shot soldier .
Ben made sure his movement was covered from a clear range shot as he exit the room.
He checked the place where he thought Wisdom could have asked the person he asked to shot him to stay, but he wasn’t there.
” I love this, I am taking the two of them out now” Ben heard but tried to decipher where it came from but couldn’t.
” Toy is around and probably with a” Snap couldn’t finish his statement before he got disconnected.
Ben swiftly looked around but find no place suitable for the usage of a sniper.
He suddenly tilted his head upward and saw someone wearing black mask, held by rope fixed to his waist as he positioned a sniper facing Gina.
” Gina” Ben screamed as he swiftly moved to her front.
He bent down in pain as a bullet hit his shoulder.
” let go” he swiftly stand up, held Gina by her hand as he ran to the Audi, pushed Gina into the passenger side, another shot was released but he was swift to dodge it by bending down beside the car.
The bullet hit the car window, but surprisingly, it didn’t shatter the window..
” bullet proof car” Ben muttered as he squatted round the car to the driver’s side.
“He’s been injured, after him” Wisdom ordered as he rushed out of the living room after he heard the gunshot.
He saw Ben shoulder bleeding before Ben could get into the car.
” are you okay” Gina asked with a worried countenance as Ben entered.
” for now, your seat belt” Ben said as he scurried out of the compound and he’s been followed by different cars and vans belonging to the uniforms there.
It was a long chase as Ben drove roughly on the smooth road and was been followed by many vehicles behind.
He established a good space between him and his pursuers but he was getting weaker, courtesy, the bullet taking a nap in his shoulder.
Suddenly, two power bikes joined the pursuit and were gaining on him.
” they’re here” Ben said fearfully as he saw them in the side mirror
It didn’t take long before the two power bikes were beside him from each side.
One of the power bike rider made a gun motion with his hand to Ben.
” Toy” Ben said as he increased his speed.
” and that’s Tabitha” Gina said staring at the bike at her side.

The end.
