The journey to the city was a nightmare to Eka’s father and mother. Each second it took seemed to them like eternity. They had got themselves into a mess whose end they did not know going to the police station and accepting NK’s money. When they arrived at Southeastern district, they went straight to the police station there and made known their mission in Southeastern district. Yet again, NK was very generous with dispensing cash to get the policemen there to dance to her tune. On the other hand she fashioned for herself an escape route just in case things didn’t go as planned. Eka and Dr. Gerry were at home cooking and doing their best to outdo each other with painting vivid pictures about the love they felt for each other. “When you began to visit me regularly at the hospital my thoughts were that you were after taking advantage of me. I tolerated you because I had no one else to talk to or who cared about me. I didn’t know I would fall helplessly in love with you. Look at me now; I can hardly spend a second without thinking about you. Dr. Gerry, have I told you lately that I love you?” “You did about three minutes ago.” “Did I? I actually feel like I have not told you that in a long while. I hope you are not tired of hearing it, because I am not tired of saying it. I love you Gerald.” “I love you Ekaette. I can understand how you feel completely. You know when you are in love; three minutes can be a long time.” “Three minutes is not a long time when you are in love, it is eternity, and can feel empty when you are not in it.” “Back at the hospital I did not know how it was going to end, but somehow I could not let myself walk away from you. Do you want to hear the truth,” Dr. Gerry asked, grinning happily.

“Tell me, I am dying to hear it.” “There were times I dreamt about you. Believe me it felt real. When you wanted to hit the street without knowing where you were going or how to survive, you scared me dead.” “What scared you most about that?” Eka had a fairly good idea about the answer; he just wanted to hear it from him. “My fear was that I would lose the chance to get to know you more. You are like the moonlight when you smile and like the stars when it is dark. Baby, you light up my world.” Dr. Gerry moved closer to Eka and brought his lips to her face to give her a peck, but Eka left her lips in his way like a road block expecting him to take the bait. Dr. Gerry was not sure he should go that far at that stage, so he painstakingly maneuvered his way around her succulent lips wishing he could kiss them and left a peck on her cheek. “You are annoyingly a good boy. Are you aware that I have not been kissed before?” “Are you kidding me?” Eka sashayed closer to him and yet again left her lips in his face in a way that said, “I want to be kissed,” and said to him, “Nope. I have not had the masculine breed taste my lips. I was hoping you would let me feel what it is like.” Dr. Gerry went Shakespearean in his move to avoid her bold offer, “Nay Olivia. This is not the day that I Antonio shall taste these lips of thine, for I have promised my maker that wait I shall until your lips I shall taste without regrets.” “Nay Antonio, thou makest me seem a villain in the eyes of mine maker by invoking your devotion to him as reason to reject my lips which I have unto thee offered. Am I now a temptress unto thee?” “Oh my God! Eka how did you learn to speak Shakespearean English?! I thought you were just a fruit seller?”  “Fruit sellers traverse many streets, meet many people and sometimes hear things which their quick minds refuse to forget. I have more from whence that came.”

Dr. Gerry was literally overwhelmed by her reply and posture as she answered him. She moved as though she was on a stage performing an act in a drama. He took two quick steps and swept her off in his arms, swung her around in the air before laying her back on the deep freeze and planted a kiss on her lips. As quickly as the rather long kiss broke up, Dr. stepped back, bowing before her, her said, “My lady thou hast made me break my silent vow. Penitence I must now show that my maker may my sins forgive.”  “Aye, penitence I must also seek by your side, for thee I have tempted with my smooth talk and led astray.” Eka had hardly finished her sentence when a deafening knock was heard on the door. Dr. Gerry ran out to know who had the guts to rudely interrupt the most exciting romantic moment of his life. Outside were the policemen, Eka’s parents and Michael. There was strangely no sign of NK. Before Dr. Gerry who was glowing as a result of the moment he just had with Eka, could ask them who they were, Michael pointed at him and shouted, “Officers this is the man, arrest him!” Dr. Gerry was shocked. Eka who heard those words sprang from the kitchen only to see her parents standing outside with policemen. Her presence sort of drove a knife into her parents’ hearts and they went to their knees crying. Eka had toughened; their cry at best brought out the worst in her.

Standing between the policemen and Dr. Gerry, she menacingly pointed her finger at her parents and asked, “What are these two doing here? How did you find me? After what you did to me, what in the world gave you the courage to come looking for me?!” Each word she spoke unlocked a chest of rage in her heart. She stepped closer to the policemen and shocked them further by asking, “Who is the man you have come to arrest?!” If Dr. Gerry thought he knew much about Eka, he was wrong. He had not seen her in that mood before. “Who did they bring you here to arrest?!” she yelled so loud that it would seem half the street heard her voice. From the ground where they knelt crying and confessing their sins, her parents sprang to their feet and bolted from the compound. The police officer who had suspected the story NK and Eka’s parents told at his station savoured every bit of Eka’s angry outburst. One of the other policemen found his voice, “We are here to arrest a certain Gerald Chambers on account of kidnapping, raping and holding an underage girl against her will.” Dr. Gerry and Eka exchanged surprised looks. Dr. Gerry made to speak and Eka raised her hand to his face stopping him short. Dr. Gerry held his peace, still surprised by Eka’s anger and the manner in which she handled herself which held the policemen spellbound.

“If you are here to arrest him for holding an underage girl against her will, may I ask you, where is the underage girl?” The policemen, Michael and Dr. Gerry were stunned by her question. Michael could tell NK had led him into a big trouble. He took two steps away and the IPO in charge of the case, casually blocked him, making it seem like he didn’t mean to; but Michael understood the officer’s body language. “Officers the man here is a medical doctor! I don’t know what they told you. If he was holding an underage girl against her will, please tell me, where is he holding her?” The IPO answered, “In his house!” Eka grabbed the IPO by the hand and dragged him toward the flat and yelled, “Officer, this is Dr. Gerry’s house! Please go inside and produce the girl!” The IPO was glad to do that. Smiling mischievously he went into the flat and Dr. Gerry followed him. IPO scoured every bit of the flat and came out and announced to his colleagues, “There is no underage girl in the flat or any sign of her.” Turning to Michael, the IPO asked, “Young man the underage girl’s parents are not here, for some reason they took off, please can you do us the favour of identifying the underage girl?” “I…I…I don’t know her,” replied a frightened Michael.

A hot slap crashed into Michael’s face from the left side of him and he staggered. “How come you don’t know the girl anymore? At the station you claimed to be a brother to her father. How is it you don’t know her anymore? A while ago you pointed at this man as the person to be arrested. How did you know he is the one?” “NK told me he is the one and that when we get here I should say he is the man to be arrested,” Michael answered still rubbing his face. “By the way where is NK?” asked the IPO. “She said she had an important call and had to go attend to it.” “How could she follow us all the way to Southeastern district and suddenly have an urgent call? Mr. Michael, I want you to identify the underage girl!” The policemen moved closer to Michael, he knew what would follow. He had to point at Eka and said, “She is the underage girl.” In the same breath as he said that, Eka landed a blinding slap to his right eye and balled her feet to start a fight. The policemen restrained her, pleading with her to calm down. Eka was too angry to talk, all she could say was, “Do I look like an underage girl to you?” One of the policemen absentmindedly answered, “No!” That answered encouraged Eka and drew one more slap from her and this time Michael began to cry, “I can’t be receiving all this beating alone! After all NK planned this and paid me to do my part.” If he had hoped that would make the beating to stop he was wrong, this time more ruthless slaps landed on his face in quick succession and he hit the floor crying aloud. The IPO knew he was going to arrest Dr. Gerry and Eka, but he wanted to first destroy the case in front of his colleagues and to get to the reasons the statements Eka’s parents and NK made did not agree.
