Episode 07.

Continues..
Ackim..
I looked around as we reached the Boutique in town, my instincts strongly warned me someone was following us. I was not so much for the idea of going into town with her but I couldn’t get the idea out of her mind. she was determined to buy new clothes for both of us. “you cannot go to Ndola with only two pairs of trousers” she insisted.
Earlier her father had called me aside..
” please Ackim look out for my daughter am really worried but I can’t show it to her. I don’t want to stress her more than she already is ” Mr Benson pleaded..
“I only wish you had taken the offer to work for me, it’s pointless for you to go back in the army after many years. I would offer you a salary more than what the government would, besides you can go and see your parents and family after working here for a while” he added.
” after all you have already been away for some time.”
I looked at his emmerging grey hair and a small moustache, the man was in his middle 50s. He seemed to be a good person though tough at the same time. I understood why he was interested in politics his manner of speech explained the characteristics of a politician and business man.
I would confess he convinced me. I thought through what he had said though I didn’t want to give him my answers there and then. I decided to make him wait a bit. so I told him I would get back to him after thinking about his offer.
“I could use a job” I thought to myself. I really nothing to My name and I was almost certain my parents got the little benefits from the army the time we disappeared.
Mr Benson cautioned over letting Paula out of my sight during the time i was to give him my final response.
So here we were, as she told me her stories about her mother. I spotted a guy behind a black car packet on our left. Quickly before he could fire the gun, I doged down pushing Paula down as I shouted for her to get down.
I rushed her to the car park and locked the doors as I ran after the shooter my gun pointed out.
I ran after him as he went behind the shops the distance between us reduced as I ran forward. I admit he was a fast but I had some persistence. I saw his speed reduce as he headed to a corner joining the main road, quickly I placed my gun behind in my jeans when I noticed it was attracting a lot of attention. People stood by the road sides and watched us.
I stoped for a second and watched him, then I took the short cut when I noticed there was only one way ahead for him.
With a bang I hit him in his face with the back of my hand sending him to the ground instantly as he was caught unaware. Before he could stand and fight back.I gave him 4 more hard knocks and he fell down unconcious that’s the goodness of my training, when you have to beat someone using some skill would help you knock off a person without taking hours of hitting them. You just have to know the right places to hit and a person goes dark instantly.
I grabbed the small phone Mr Benson had given me to call him in case of emmergence and called him.
” I got the shooter Sir!”
I reported.
“Am heading to the road now am certain Paula has called you already.”
“Yeah, she has” he’s shaky voice answered
” I sent guys over where she is and am on my way too.”
“Good” I sighed breathing heavily with the guy I was carrying on my shoulder taking part of my strenght.
“tell the guys to meet me by the main road side to the west of town then.” I added, pushing the phone in my pockets after hanging up.
As soon as the road appeared before me. I saw the ranger I left Paula in halt in front of me. one of the guys opened the trunk and I pushed the shooter inside and tied his hands from behind with a rope I saw placed in the trunk.
Paula came out panting
” are you alright?” She asked checking me.
” am fine” I said looking at her. she sighed in relief..
“How are you?” I too asked her.. “thanks to you, you saved my life again,” she said hugging me.
“sure thing, we have to go now” i smiled at her..
“yeah we do” she responded as she let go of me.
I noticed she had had this attachement to me like we knew each other for a long time but I was not for the idea of being attached to anyone especially a woman. For some reason all i felt was the need to keep her safe and alive. I saw her fear and more than ever at that moment what her father had told me made sense. she was in a lot danger than I had anticipated.
I decided that moment to work and be her body guard. The cut Paula’s Father had promised was great. It was an offer I would benefit more from.
I sat in the back seat with Paula as the driver, the man who drove her after I left her alone in the parking lot at the boutique drove on keeping his speed steady.
She relaxed and held my hand as we moved back to the lodge. I looked at her and she smilled. “thank you again” she said.
“it’s my job” I told her with with grinn..
“What?” She asked excited.
“your job? Do you mean you are staying? ”
“Yeah Paula I am, I have decided to take your father’s offer, so I guess am your bodyguard from now until this danger is over” I explained. she looked ahead but I could see she was so happy.
” wow thank heaven’s” she let a smile.
“. I know you will protect me Ackim ” she continued without turning to look at me.
“I hope I will,” I told her as the vehicle pulled in the gate of the lodge.
The guy who drove us opened the trunk and I lifted the guy to the back yard of the lodge. I asked for some kind of store room with some space and I was directed by Paula.
I dropped the shooter on the floor as he started moving coming to.
Quickly I tied him to a chair like they did to Paula, without untying his legs.
All i had to do was wait for further instructions from Mr Benson before I could take the next step, which I presumed would be an interrogation.
