However, just after Tunrayo knocks, she looks at the SUV, one eye narrowed, her body moving there.
However, just then, the door opens.
And as it opens, her attention is diverted from the strange sighting she did see behind the SUV, the trail of a person's footwear.
And if it was of any way beneficial to her friend, then, she...She would have to take it.“Please, make sure you are not seen! I highly doubt that her parents would approve of what I want you to do. But, don't worry, I promise, its only to save her. I can't bring myself to hurt my Deola...” Tade's voice drops considerably low towards the end of his words.“Wait, what do you mean?” Tunrayo stops short, her hand on the door handle.“You're wasting time, Tunrayo. Come on out, I am just in front of the door.” Tade impatiently speaks, the effect of it adding haste and stealth into Tunrayo as she begins to hurry away.However, Tunrayo pauses her motion, some few steps away from the door. She stands now in a corridor, the floor of it coated by white tiles.Opposite the room she exited now is another door, the entrance to what she already knows to be A
"Tunrayo, what are you doing?"Tunrayo is startled and turns back, only to behold the faces of extremely pissed and horrified parents of Deola, their body frames standing at the wide open door."Shit… I didn't close the door." Tunrayo whispers, her face ghostly.****"You heard my husband. What did you give to our daughter?" Deola's mother chirps in, in support of her husband's earlier question, her eyes furiously staring down the girl who has their daughter in the hands."A-ah… I…" Tunrayo stammers, not knowing how to proceed with all of it or how to even get deal with questions asked."You what?" Richard clenched his fist. "I have had a hard time accepting that you are behind this…""She is, honey!" Tolani cuts in with pouting lips."...but not with what you just did." Richard advances to the bed, covering up the paces in few strides."You even cleared the salt that we put down there? Why would you do tha
"I've had enough of you, human. Enough with your tampering with my brother's life."These are the last words the lady in the brown jean shirt styled gown hears before her world goes black.And then, the last sound she hears is…BANNNNGG!Intense ache tore through a head like a crazed beast, claws ferociously scrapping at a point with determined dark intents to rip out her brain matter on the spot.The hot searing pain follows, drilling through her head like a piece of hot nail driven into human flesh, deep down in one thrust into the muscles, messed up with blood and torn sinews and in this case, through her skull.Sharp and fierce, the pain is not relenting, accompanied by a now thudding headache. The lady feels thrust suddenly, her tongue dry and parched and longs for a chilled drink to soothe the burning longing in her throat.She feels her body no longer depending on her feet but rather begins to tilt back, falling down and down.T
"Save it, young lady. I don't want to see you around my daughter ever again.Let today be the last time you would ever be here, understood?"The man in white vest and green-blue checked pyjamas trousers who Tunrayo has come to know as the father of her best friend, Deola, says to her.It is shocking and really painful, Tunrayo shudders, as the very same thing she did want to avoid has been set upon her.But how would she have had the slightest idea that in her desperation, the man she sought to find would be long gone? She, out of loss of words to say and based on the urgency of the bombarding questions, had thought that things would mellow down if she had just shown them the ‘Mr Poisedon’; but, how mistaken she is.The man who is Richard, the father of Deola, turns his back to her as he opens the door, leaving her outside after the warning.Oh, if her mum did hear this, Tunrayo sniffs, she’d say that she told her, di
Wait, till someone did stand up. And while he is at that, Tade leans back on the plastic chair, he'd think about the only girl that really matters to him.Deola Aderigbe."Please, Dee… Come back to me!"He rubs the back of his neck as he shuts his eyes from the physical happenings around him, bringing his thoughts to focus on just only one girl.The girl who had made him smile these few times.And by the gods, Tade smiles, it did feel like he had met her since an entire century. Whereas, it only had been less than three weeks that he did stumble into them.'That Girl… hm!' Tade puts both elbows of his hands on the table, crossing the fingers into each other to form a sort of pad for the chin of his seemingly pleasant face.'Gods… What am I doing? This is crazy. Sitting for an exam for a human girl?Geez… If they heard back at Atlantis, I'd be done for.' Tade snorts out in amusement, his eyes ti
It is of a fact that comatose patients, both natural or induced, do not respond to touch, sound or pain, and of even more emphasis, cannot be awakened. Their brains often show no signs of the normal sleep-wakefulness cycle, which means they are unlikely to be dreaming. Yet many people who have recovered from comas report dreams into which something of the outside world penetrated, this negating the general belief of them unable to react to anything. The Lagos Port Complex also referred to as Premiere Port (Apapa Quays) is the earliest and largest Port in Nigeria. It is situated in Apapa, Lagos State, the commercial center of Nigeria. The Port, established in 1913, witnessed the construction of the first four deep water berths which did begin in the year of 1921, a few years before the country of Nigeria did gain independence while it still did exist under colonial rule of the British.The Apapa Port as of now, is well equipped with modern cargo handling equipment necessary for the day to day activities of the harbour and also, personnel support facilities making her cost effective and customer friendly. It does enjoy intermodal connection – Rail, Water and Road.

It is just about 24 hours since Tade had asked Tunrayo to give the spirit pill that he had been able to get, through forceful means however, from the underwater city where he did reside. And thus, Tade muses within his heart that this is just the time he has to check on her again.Although, he feels it deep within him that she would survive it. He does not have any g
