As he woke the next morning she was no where to be seen.
Chido went to his department that day, something he hadnt done in a long time.
He went cos he had received an sms the day b4 telling him about a mock test in preparation for their final exam at the end of the year. He wasnt prepared 4 any test but he didnt have a choice.
He and the twins set off early so they could beat the 7 am rush of traffic on the road. On arriving the lecture hall he called Augusta on her mobile and she told him she had reserved a sit for him next to her.
When the test started he dubbed her work intoto and as the test came to an end. He invited her out to town for dinner which she was thrilled 2 accepted.
While they were eating after they arrived in town for dinner, chido received a call from the twins asking him were he was and he told em.
They arrived 40 minutes later and informed him that they were all asked to assemble at Peach lodge (the head quarter of their group). So Chido and the twins drove augusta back to her hostel and went for their summons.
On arriving the venue there were mademen, hitmen, upcomers and soldiers. After about a few mins after reporting a very tall fair youngman called all together and introduced himself.
He then spoke “I am Anaconda. Just in case the upcommer dont know why we all are here. There are new imports into the school and intel tells us that they would be a possible retaliatory attacks on our group for an attack we were conscripted to carry out in another school. I would suggest as from now everyone sould move in groups of fours or threes and inform the seniors of any funny movements. Also carry ur luga everywere u go. The threat is real and the information has been confirmed. In case u doubt and ask why we are taking this very serious, intel has confirmed this morning the presence of Ibinabo (he is the Guari hitman that we missed in that attack). We believe he is here to just cause distraction while the people his group imported do their dirty work. We are on code red here guys. This is not a drill”.
As he finished talking he started directing and telling people where to go and what to do.
By the time his eyes rested on the upcomers he had a tired expression on his face as he spoke to them
“its a pity black mamba had to urgently travel out for his uncles burial. We really need him here now cos he is better at organizing. I am more of the action type so would personally lead a counter attack once and if they hit. U guys stay in the back and close to me. Python will lead the other flows from the right flank and Cobra will lead the left flank. My information tells me their target is python so if they go for him at the flank we turnaround and flank them and then crush them. Keep ur eyes open and ur lugas ready”.
Chido and the other upcomers responded yessir.
They moved off after then. They tried to keep up recon every day but the expected attack never came.
