Sonia made up her mind to play along with Ebere. She had earlier discussed about it with her mother who saw nothing wrong with it.
“At least, the crime you committed will forever remain a secret and moreover, I trust you will extort enough money from him”She added, making Sonia’s endless thoughts grow the more. She was right about the idea of concealing the crime but that extorting money ‘thing’ was what
made her give the old woman the “does this woman ever wish me well at all?” stare. “What is that?”Her mother who didn’t take the staring for granted asked. “Nothing”Sonia had replied. Sonia thought of every possible ways to carry out her plans but a question struck her mind. What if David refuses her advances and send her out of the house? What will become of her? She thought very hard to avoid any complicated issue. She had to make sure she succeeds because if she doesn’t, she will loose everything.The impatient Ebere had sent her texts over the pasts days, saying she’s still waiting for a call.
The second week was coming to an end and she equally knew that Ebere meant every word she said. “Three weeks or you face the law” The idea of eliminating Ebere crossed her mind severally but she remembered her words again;that there was another witness who also saw the way she heartlessly stabbed paul. The pictures Ebere later showed her made her wish she had supernatural powers powers to change things. With those pictures, Ebere really got the upper hand. “Oh my God.I didn’t mean to take his life. I know it wasn’t right. Vengeance, you have finished me” Angela had gone out to visit a friend. David was at home with Sonia. She saw this as the perfect opportunity to begin her plans. She thought of what to do.

David was in the sitting room watching television. She wore a very short mini skirt and a little sleeveless top, which revealed a clear view of her bosom. Ebere was at the other end of the mobile phone in her back pocket. As she stepped out of her room, she stopped and gave a second thought. Her inner self told her to move on before Angela comes back. She approached the sitting and stood still, staring at him. His eyes were glued to the football match he was watching. She stepped forward, her heart beating very fast. She placed her left palm on her chest to calm the increased heart beat. She kept stepping forward slowly.
She just prayed her mission gets successful. She tapped him and as he turned, his eyes landed on her bosom. Sonia noticed his countenance change. She wondered what next. She didn’t want to be embarrassed. “You called me sir” She said instead, looking at him boldly as if she was actually called. “I didn’t call you, and why are you putting on this dress” David asked, he was having mixed feelings. He didn’t know if he should shout at her or not. Frankly speaking, he was beginning to like her for the type of person she was. Very hardworking, humble and respectful, with her beauty crowning it all. But for the sake of the vow he made on the alter to Angela, he always dismissed every negative thoughts to take advantage of the poor girl. But now, here she was with him all alone. He looked at her once more. He controlled himself as a man, not knowing that Sonia had a plan in mind. “Why are you wearing this?” He asked again.
Sonia knew without being told that she had failed this first attempt. “Nothing sir. just that i was feeling heat. so i decided to wear this clothes” She answered, touching the clothes as if David didn’t see them. “Is the fan in your room no longer working. Go to your room” David finally said and faced the football match he was watching. “I am sorry sir” Sonia drawled and started walking away slowly.”Ebere surely must be angry over there”She thought. Few hours later,Angela called and informed David that she won’t be returning home that very day. She had gone to see her parents with the hope of returning that same day but something came up which made her mother ask her to call her husband and inform him she won’t be returning that day. After ending the conversation on the phone with his wife, he called Sonia to inform her that her madam would not come home that day, so that would not prepare her dinner. Sonia nodded in comprehension. “Another chance”she thought and smiled to herself. When it was time to start preparing dinner, she carefully prepared it and went into her room. It was 7.45pm and David was getting hungry. Sonia ought to have called him to come and eat. “Sonia” he called. There was no answer. He kept calling her name while heading to the kitchen. She wasn’t there.
He headed to her room, still calling her name. As he opened the door to her room, he found her sleeping on the bed without putting any clothes on.
