Benjamin….

Seeing Clara in handcuffs being led away in a police van, I would agree gave me a good feel of

peace. Although I had hoped she would tell me where my son was.

I could see her facial expression as she screamed ” he’s in hell” wondering if she was just faking it

or she really hated her own child.

I sighed making a note in my mind to make it my priority to look for my son as soon as Jennifer

was released from prison.

Hours before, I went direct to the lawyer I hired for Jen and played the recording for him after

having her spit out her plans. I sent him a copy and another one I forwarded to my friend just in

case something happened to me.

” This will definitely have your wife set free without doubt” the lawyer smiled at me.

” Yeah, she’s not my wife yet but I intend to make her mine as soon as possible.” I smiled back at

him.

” You must love her so much.” He nodded his head.

” I adore her, she taught me the meaning of true love and there is no one who has ever sacrificed so much for me like she has done man, and for that I will always be indebted to her” I said as a

matter of fact.

” Let me get going now I have some other people I would want to see ” l stood sighing.

” I know the drug issue right?” The lawyer chuckled.

” Sure, I can’t just wait for that Clara to get in jail were she belongs. I don’t feel okey with her

outside just a couple of days from the trial. You know how she is” I shrugged as the man saw me

to the car.

From his office I went straight to the Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) to report the drugs

Mulenga told me about.

They seemed concerned about how I came to know of such but Couldn’t tell them who gave me

the information. After some minutes I convinced them to give it a short and ambush the company

premises that night to see if my report had some steak to it.

I offered to join the squard, more like I wanted to be sure, she was there and apprehended. The

outcome of which pleased me so much I felt relieved.

I couldn’t wait for morning for me to rush to the Prison and tell the good news to Jennifer.

As I murmered to a song driving back home I saw a man standing close to the house.

My heart leaped a bit as I stared at his image.

As l approached him he moved away pretending to be going forward. A thought told me I was

being stalked and I couldn’t think of anyone else but Clara’s right hand man.

I parked the car and rushed inside locking the door immediately.

Switching on the living room lights I rushed out through the back door and called on the police as I

ran to the house in the next yard.

In less than 20 minutes a police car parked in my yard and I ran to tell them about the stalker. To

confirm my report the police realised the front door was broken implying someone had attempted

to break in.

Unfortunately the sirens must have given him a warning and he ran off before the cops could get

there.

I had to sleep on the couch for fear of being caught unprepared , by the same thug that night.

The following morning I quickly cleaned myself up and drove to the prison my heart rejoicing at the

news I hard for Jennifer.

I watched her as the warderess led her to the visiting room. My mouth grinning I couldn’t hold the

happiness I was feeling in my heart.

” My love!” I exclaimed pulling her in an embrace as the warderess shoot me an eye of watch out.’

” I missed you” she smiled looking at my face. ” lt seems some one is happy today” she sighed as

she sat down.

” Guess what ?” I held her hand.

” Come on love, please don’t let the suspense kill me spit it out already. Am I free to go?” She

responded impatience written all over her face.

” Soon enough my love. I wish it was today but unfortunately we have to wait for the trial for you to

be released” I told her

” What happened? ” she asked seemingly not convinced with the news I was just telling her.

went on explaining how the case was. Telling her I had recorded Clara’s conversation where she

spoke of her plan of wanting us to pay. How she plotted the murder of my mother and all the

things she had ranted out.

” The lawyer has just confirmed the case will be a walk over with a line of charges Clara has lined

up against her. It’s all over soon and you are coming back home” I smiled.

She was quiet for a minute and I saw her sobbing. Tears rolling down her face.

” What is it love?” I asked concerned.

” I can’t believe this day has come when l got to hear this news. I don’t even know what to say

now, this place is horrible and all I have been thinking of is leaving, now that the good news is

here, I can’t…” She raised her hands wiping the tears.

” Stop now babe, you are going to be out sooner than you thought, God is on our side. He has

seen us through” I laughed comforting her.

” Yeah!” She sighed ” am so stupid right? Instead of being happy, here I am crying like a baby” she

sniffed.

” No you are not. I understand you babe. You have been through hell. But now all this is over, you

are coming back home with me ” I went on making her shake her head and smile between tears.

” Thank you so much” she sighed and I pulled her hand towards myself. ” lt was my mess to sort.

You are here because of me and I couldn’t let a day pass without working on plans to get you out.”

I whispered.
