“What is inside bro” Wind shouted on top of his voice and he dragged the bag from my hands.
He immediately opened it
“Oh My God!”
I look at Mylestone with a smile as he was already shaking like a wet chicken. He looked back at me confused. It was till Wind gave out a loud laughter that he caught the idea that we were just pulling his legs.
“It is there bro” Wind shouted inside the taxi
“You serious?” Myles asked
“We are made!” He shouted loudly while thumping his fist in the air. He immediately hugged me and likewise wind. The laughter and celebrations continued till the Cab man asked us where we were going to make the delivery.
“Campos road” I replied as the driver quickly steered his steering and made way to our destination.
The drugs were duly delivered and payments were wired. We had a good time in Brazil as we toured round Sao Paulo and Jainero. I have always wanted to feel the warmth and body of Brazilian girls like we always saw in movies and it was exactly how I pictured it. Moving from a night club to another club with the shortest possible time, I had something with as much Brazilian girls I could. I felt I was on top of the game till I saw Wind and even Mylestone with their own score cards.
“Mylestone!” I yelled as I caught him one night digging a local babe behind the back of a car in a night club! He looked at me with his eyes filled with so much energy and excitement.
“Don’t disturb him bro” Wind reminded. We waited for Myles to be through before we bundled ourselves to our hotel rooms.
“I love here Bro” Myles confessed. We all went into deep laughter. Separate rooms and separate girls was all we had for the night as we prepared ourselves for the journey tomorrow.
“I will be back again” I overheard Myles telling the girl that slept with him throughout the night.
“You sure you will be back?” I intercepted their discussion. He pushed me out as we took our bags and made way to the Sao Paulo airport.
We found our way to the airport and booked the flight. We waved goodbye to our hosts as we boarded our plane back to Nigeria.
“Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Ms Mariam and I am your chief flight attendant. On behalf of my other captain and the entire crew, welcome abroad Emirates Airline. We will be having a non stop flight to Johannesburg before we continue to Nigeria.
Our time flight is shown on the screen above and we will be flying at a very high altitude with a higher speed. At this time, make sure your seat backs and the tray tables are in their full upright position and that your seat belt is correctly fastened. Also, your portable electronic devices must be set to ‘airplane’ mode until an announcement is made upon arrival. Thank you” That was the voice of the pilot before we commenced our journey.
I was so excited that I wished I could jump out of the plane and fly down to Nigeria within the shortest possible period. I kept on dreaming of various things while we were on air.
“You remember that house I tell you about?” Wind asked me
“Yea” I replied with a smile.
“I dey go price am immediately” Wind replied with a smile. I immediately turned and saw Myles having a chat with a classy black lady on the plane. He was so engrossed in his discussion with the lady that I had to come close to pay good attention to what he was telling the girl.
“In a few hours, I will be a rich man. Would you love to date me now?” That was exactly what I heard Myles say to the girl. She smiled and blushed at the same time. Well, it wasn’t my business as I continued to anticipate the good life that would come afterwards our little adventure.
“Ladies and gentlemen, as we start our descent, please make sure your seat backs and tray tables are in their full upright position. Make sure your seat belt is securely fastened and all carry-on luggages are stowed underneath the seat in front of you or in the overhead bins. Thank you.”
“We are home brother” I whispered to Wind
“We are home” He responded back with a smile.
“Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Murutala Muhammed Airport. Local time is 7pm and the temperature is 25 degrees Celsius. On behalf of Emirates Airline and the entire crew, I’d like to thank you for joining us on this trip and we are looking forward to seeing you board again in the near future. Have a nice evening!”
We quickly packed our baggage and descended for clearance into the airport hall and finally found our way into a cab.
“Which hotel?” Myles asked
“Quilox is the name” Wind responded as I smiled back at the both of them. We quickly found a cab that would transport us straight down to the hotel at the Island.
“Goodevening Sirs, how may I be of help” The receptionist asked.
“Room for three” I responded back.
She quickly drafted out the receipt before handing it over to us.
“How much?” I asked
“Two-hundred thousand Naira” She replied.
I quickly counted the money and handed it over to her. We packed our luggage and went up the building into our separate rooms.
“Good evening Ma” I spoke into the phone
“How was it?” Madam Grace asked
“Delivery was cleared” I replied.
“Congratulations!” She responded “I will see all of you tomorrow”.
The night seemed so long. Every minute was like an hour. I couldn’t sleep as I turned from the side of the bed to another. I watched and looked at the clock as it ticked and kept ticking. I stood up and walked round the full air-conditioned room with drinks all over the room. I had lost appetite of anything. All I wanted for just to see the break of dawn and get my own share of hardwork.
I quickly stood up and realized that it was already past 10 o’clock in the morning. I picked up the call without looking at who called.
“Good morning” I greeted
“You and the other guys should meet me by 2 o’clock at the Meridan hotel” She said to me.
“Okay ma!” I responded and ended the call before going to alert the other guys. I entered their rooms and still found them so asleep.
“Wake up” I shouted at them. Sluggishly and slowly they turned and romanced their various pillows.
“What is the time?” Wind asked while rolling all over the bed
“Welcome to Brazil” I joked. They both woke up with a loud laugh.
“Madam said we should meet her by 2. So we have to prepare” I said to them.
“Hope she is with the money?” Myles asked jokingly as everyone laughed so hard.
We ordered for our breakfast and within few minutes, it was delivered right to us. We ate, had our shower, packed our bags before we finally checked out of the hotel.
“Hope to see you guys back again” The receptionist said before I handed her some dollar bills for good services.
*****At Meridan Hotel******
We waited patiently for Madam Grace where she asked us to wait. The silence was killing and everyone was anxious. We barely talked to each other as everyone of us was anxious to know exactly what would become of the meeting we want to have with Madam Grace.
“Good morning guys” Madam Grace greeted when she finally came to meet us.
“Let’s meet upstairs guys” She said as she moved quickly and we followed her almost immediately. When we finally settled in the room, she immediately gave us a form to fill and she collected it after we were through.
She opened up her laptop as we waited patiently.
“In the next few minutes, you will all receive alerts to the tune of 2 million Naira each.” She said. She had barely finished the statement, when my phone beeped silently. I needed not an Angel to tell me it was the sound of money. I couldn’t wait for her to be through with her long and boring speech, so as to go out and do what I love doing best with money. She continued with her speech, till something spoilt our joy.
“After your next trip, you will receive 15 million Naira each for delivery”
“15 million?” I echoed back
“Yes!” she responded firmly with a smile.
“Where is the destination?” Myles asked
“Indonesia” Madam Grace replied with a smile.
“I can’t Ma” I said before Myles agreed with my opinion.
“I don’t think I would do such Ma” Wind added. “Thanks for this one, and it is goodbye from me” He said.
The countenance in her face changed immediately as she stared at us with a very wicked look.
“You shouldn’t be scared of anything, I have made plans and everything is under control…” She added.
“I can’t do that Ma” I interrupted her speech. “They execute drug dealers and we have no chance of survival. It is a suicide mission and I can’t risk my life for 15 Million Naira” I said with fierce anger.
“I am also sorry Ma, I can’t also” Myles chipped in alongside Wind as we all stood up and left.
“She should go fvck herself with her 15 Million Naira” I barked as we made way out of that hotel. We had barely walked a reasonable distance when my phone vibrated and it was message for Madam Grace which read
“Never bite the finger that fed you. You must deliver this drug for me at all cost”
“Fvck off Ma” I texted back.
I continued my discussion with the guys on our way.
“Alright guys, we will meet tomorrow evening” I said
“You will communicate us the location na” Wind asked
“For sure” I said as I quickly boarded a cab and zoomed off to my house.
I got home and opened my laptop to surf the internet as usual. I opened up my facebook profile and to my surprise, I saw RIP on her wall.
“Holy Jesus” I murmured.
I stared at my laptop screen with my mouth agape as tears trickled down slowly from my eyes.
I wanted to ask myself what happened and how it happened, but I quickly remembered how it actually happened before my trip to Brazil.
