‘Babe.’ I screamed out as she looked at me with blood on her face
She looked as if she was in shock, I pulled her close and held her really tight.
‘I was scared, I thought I had lost you.’ I said with tears streaming down my eyes
‘We don’t have the whole day, Felicia clean up, and Justin help me with her body.’ Chimuka said as she handed me gloves
‘What are you doing here?’ Felicia finally managed to ask
‘I will explain later, now clean up and some guys will come to do a thorough clean up once we leave.’ She said as she wore her gloves
Felicia ran to the bathroom and cleaned up whilst we picked up Wane’s body and covered it in a black plastic bag and put it in a canter that was packed just behind my house.
The guys she mentioned earlier came and cleaned up, after thirty minutes the house was back to its normal state except I had questions and Felicia looked like she was about to lose her mind.
‘Without wasting much of your time, so you have my full names and you also know that I once worked for Wane and the President. They promised to give me a piece of my little haven if I managed to bring you down but I guess since I failed they won’t hesitate to end my life.’ She began
‘I have nothing to lose, I like you two. You are good people and if at all you die I want it to be a natural death and not because someone had a hand in it. I followed Wane since the day you kicked me out and when she came here I knew it wasn’t going to be good.’ She said before pausing
‘Aren’t you scared that someone might have found out? About this operation?’ I asked
‘Her private investigator is on a ship to Asia, I paid him really well.’ She said
‘And the money?’ I asked her
‘They had paid me in advance for the job, I figured I didn’t need it.’ She said
We all kept quiet without a word.
‘So Felicia you will remain here and be the good wife that you are, tomorrow you will go back for work and pretend that nothing happened.’ She told her
‘And me?’ I asked
‘Drink this.’ She said handing me a cup with some green fluid
‘What is this?’ I asked
‘Nothing dangerous, just a drug to get you sick to the stomach. You will drive back to the clinic you did the test from, am sure the doctor jolted down some things. Make him admit you and make him also call your secretary. No one will suspect you.’ She said
‘And you, this body?’ I asked
‘I will take care of it, just prepare yourself for a national mourning.’ She told me
I did as ordered, I gave Felicia the Sachet I had in my pockets and explained what the state had been doing to me all this while. I waited for Chimuka to drive out using the back yard and I drove back to the clinic where I met the doctor that didn’t even recognise me.
I called my secretary and explained to her that I wasn’t feeling okay and I had been put on bed rest at a certain clinic and wouldn’t return to the office until the next day.
I had made a lot of mistakes in my life and I was prepared to correct them even if it meant putting my life on the line. I drove to Wane’s street and parked just a few metres away from there. It was a high profile street and had a lot of security so I had to wait till night fall to dump her body.
At exactly 21hrs, I got out slowly and lowered her body on the ground with a note written with a stick in her blood that read; ‘Evil births Evil.’
I drove out into a secluded area where I had parked my car and set the canter on fire before driving off.
May 8th, 2015. 07:45hrs
I was in my office hosting a meeting with a few dignitaries when I got a call from Wane’s husband. I clearly remembered her words on one afternoon after signing a big deal.
‘You know Mr President, if you ever receive a call from my husband; consider me dead.’ She had said
‘Oh please, I am dying earlier than you.’ I had told her as I stared into her beautiful eyes
‘No, I will die earlier than you. I have made quite a number of enemies and I wouldn’t be surprised if anyone took me down today.’ She continued
‘If anyone ever dares to lay a hand on you I swear I will bring down the whole country until I find them.’ I assured her as I clinched my hands into a fist
‘No Sir, if at all someone takes me down, that person would have been smart. They would have a good reason too. Remember I am not careless.’ She replied
‘I will still hunt them down.’ I assured her
‘Listen to me, if you dare try to find my killers it will be the end of you too. The person who would have guts to kill me would know so much about us.’ She said running her hand on my belly
‘I can’t imagine a life without you.’ I said kissing her forehead
‘Just promise me that you will honour that.’ She said looking straight into my eyes
‘Can we stop talking about death?’ I asked as I got on top of her
She laughed so hard…I could still hear her laugh, so sweet and vibrant, carefree and full of humour.
‘Mr President Will you take that?’ one of the men in the room asked disturbing me from my thoughts
‘Oh sure.’ I said as I stood up to answer from the bathroom
‘Mr Musoni.’ I said before clearing my voice
‘Mr President.’ He responded leaving an awkward silence between us
‘We found Wane’s body this morning…’
I did not let him finish his sentence, the phone dropped to the ground and a darkness clouded my mind. The last thing I heard was
‘Please rush him, Mr President please try to keep your eyes open.’
SO D VICE PRESIDENT IS DEAD??🤩🤩🤩,BUT WAIT OH,THE VICE AND D PRESIDENT WERE HAVING AN AFFAIR???
My Secretary had just informed me about his Excellency’s short illness, state house was on fire and so was the entire office. I was one of his right hand men and I knew I had to be there with his family immediately he woke up. I went to pick up the first family and we drove to the hospital which had been assigned to his Excellency.
When we got there the doctors informed us that he was not in a stable condition and anything upsetting would get him worse.
‘Daddy’, His youngest daughter screamed
He didn’t say a word but a tear escaped from the corner of his eyes. He opened his arms and she ran to him and they cried together
‘I will protect you with my blood.’ He assured her
‘Get better for me daddy, I don’t want to lose you.’ The little girl cried
‘Hush my baby.’ The first lady said patting her back
‘Justin kindly take the kids outside.’ She told me
I obliged and led them out.
‘You have never fallen ill in the past 35 years that we have been married, never anything that made you look like this.’ I told him
‘Mevis I need to rest.’ He told me
‘Rest? Since when do you want to rest?’ I asked him not giving in to the anger that was anxious to pour out
‘Pass me my phone.’ He said in a low tone
I got his phone and entered his password, it was still Wane’s birthday. Afterwards I passed it to him
‘How did you know my password?’ He asked
I felt insulted, this is someone I had been married to for a long time and I knew much about him than he anticipated.
‘I can’t find a number.’ He said as he continued to swipe his screen
‘I deleted her number, and her husband’s.’ I told him
‘Who?’ He asked without even looking at me
‘Wane.’ I responded after clearing my throat
He looked at me with blood shot eyes, his mood instantly changing.
‘Why would you do that?’ He yelled
‘She is gone and you have to accept that, you will have to get better because the press is waiting for a statement. Justin will handle all the funeral proceedings, no need to keep his number.’ I told him
‘I want to handle everything.’ He responded
‘You will behave like the President should, you will not at all give the world a reason to question your actions.’ I told him
‘you will not cry in public or any of that nonsense, leave that to her husband. I will go out there and sign your release papers, it’s enough that you are running a rotten system we won’t waste more money by keeping someone who is healthy in here.’ I said that and walked away
I walked to the doctor’s office and requested that I sign the release papers, he was hesitant at first talking about how my husband is the President and needs to be in good health but I protested.
I found Justin and the kids in the cafeteria each one in their own world.
‘Ma’am.’ He began when I approached him
‘Don’t tell me you are also buying that nonsense.’ I said
‘I don’t get you.’ He responded
‘You are too intelligent to act dumb with me Justin, both you and I know he is not sick.’ I told him
He looked at me without saying a word, one of the things I liked about Justin is how much he calculated his words before speaking
‘Wane is dead.’ I told him bluntly
‘What? The vice president you mean?’ he asked with a straight face
‘Oh you haven’t heard?’ I asked him
‘Is that why the President is like that?’ he asked me
‘His lover is down, what do you expect.’ I told him plainly
‘His lover?’ he questioned
‘Wane and my husband had history, I am glad she is out of the way. Whoever took her down was very intelligent but I have my fears.’ I told him
‘What do you mean?’ he asked
‘My husband loved Wane, he will never be the same again without her much less without avenging her death.’ I responded sadly
When Wane’s husband told me about her death, I was heartbroken and it felt like a piece of me was escaping my body. At that moment I wanted everything to be a lie, to be a bad dream that I would eventually wake up from.
I walked out of my ward with my wife by my side, my special assistant who was just a bit higher in rank than Justin had informed us that they found Wane’s body in her street with a note that read ‘evil births evil’. We were also told that the killing was done by an expert because it led to no one but I wasn’t buying that until I was sure that it was indeed thugs or anything.
But what bothered me is that it was a murder case and there was no way it could be closed just like that, she was not an ordinary person to be forgotten just like that. The drive back to state house was quiet, nobody said a thing to anyone. Immediately we got there, I was directed to my office with certain representatives from a few media houses to be present as I made a live briefing.
I wasn’t strong enough because I felt like breaking down but I had to do this in order for the person who killed my Wane to get the message.
‘I wish I could say that it is a good day but it is not, a dark cloud has befallen us as a country and as a nation. We are sorry to announce that we have not only lost a vice president, but a mother, wife and friend. Mrs Wane Musoni was found dead yesterday and details about her death are yet to be confirmed. We also wish to inform the general public that we will not rest until the perpetrators are brought to book, it is our sincere apology to the Musoni family because we know that no one ever prepares themselves for bereavement. We will honour her memory by having a one week of national mourning, all works will be at a standstill and the national flags will be lowered. May her soul continue resting in peace.’ I said as tears streamed down my face
SO D PRESIDENT’S WIFE KNEW ABOUT THE AFFAIR??
