Luke paced around restlessly in his abode. It had been
two days since he sent Chris and Angela to escort the
rest of the coven. If his calculations were correct, they
should be here by now. He moved to the window and
glanced out. The night was still young as the streets
was still buzzing with activities. His super hearing
picked up on the noises coming from the various
vehicles speeding about, loudspeakers blazing from a
nearby dance club.
“Hmm” he smirked. “ Dance while you can, feeble
humans. Soon you’ll be dancing to my tune”.
He heard footsteps behind him and soon, the door
opened. He turned around and saw a man breathing
heavily, a panicked look on his face.
“What is it?” Luke frowned.
“My lord” the man panted. “ We have a problem.”
Luke’s eyes narrowed but he said nothing, he nodded to
the man to lead the way and they both left the room.
They arrived at the compound and Luke was
astonished. Chris and Angela stood tiredly with blood
allover their bodies though there was no sign of injuries
thanks to their healing factor. Chris carried a bloodied
corpse, slung over his shoulder. When he saw his father
approaching, he bent down and gently laid it on the
Luke inspected the corpse. One of the hands was cut off
and there was a gaping hole in the chest. No doubt, the
wound was inflicted by a wooden stake. Luke cursed
and slammed his fist on the ground making it vibrate
from the impact and making Angela jump a little. She
moved behind Chris in fear.
“Who did this?” Luke growled lowly, his eyes still staring
“ Three men, father” Chris said as he swallowed lightly.
“We were ambushed at the border. They moved so fast
and they were completely armed.”
“Armed with what?” Luke looked at him for the first
“Stakes” Chris replied, wiping blood from his forehead
with the back of his hand. “ Stakes, swords and arrows
made from wood. About 30 of our coven members were
killed. The rest fled”
“ DAMN!!” Luke let out an earth shattering scream as he
stood quickly and kicked away a wooden table.
Everyone was paralyzed with fear as no one was bold
enough to calm their Lord’s rage. Angela held Chris arm
tightly as she nuzzled against his back, not wanting to
look at his father in the eye. Chris shook his head and
looked at the floor in shame. Finally after a tense
moment, Luke sighed and then folded his hands before
staring into space. The trio had struck again just like
they did back at the warehouse. Chris mentioned that
they were highly skilled but how skilled can a human be
to take down 30 vampires with ease? The whole thing
was so baffling.
“ You may go” He dismissed. Chris and Angela went
inside to freshen up and he stared at the corpse for a
while before beckoning on his messenger who swiftly
ran to him.
“Get rid of that” he pointed to the corpse.
It had finally happened. The rumored strike. After a long
protest, the school finally went on strike much to
majority of the student’s disappointment as the exams
were already drawing near, but what could they do?
They had no choice.
Jake had recovered within a week much to everyone’s
joy but the Doctor, Sola had given him precautions
concerning stressing himself, particularly on the left side
of his chest. After two more weeks, it was safe to say
he was medically clear. Sharon still kept in the dark
about the mysterious circumstances surrounding her but
only knowing about Jake’s injury made sure to invite
them to her house for a party her parents were
throwing. Something about celebrating a new contract
her father bagged.
Daniel on the other hand wasn’t having fun right now
as the trio kept tailing him wherever he went, although
they kept their distance. Whenever he wanted to visit a
friend, they accompanied him but didn’t enter the
house, only hanging around. At first, he paid no
attention to it but it began to seriously get annoying
and he wondered why he hadn’t gone nuts yet.
Daniel, Jake and Tomiwa arrived at Sharon’s house
dressed for the party. The house was what you could
call a mansion. It was quite big and spacious with a
small garden, a play ground and what else could
complete the typical rich man’s house if not a
swimming pool. Lots of people had arrived and there
was a loud speaker with a DJ mixing beats.
“Wow” Jake said in awe as he looked around the house.
“This girl is freaking loaded”
“ Tell me about it” Tomiwa whistled clinging to his arm.
“It feels like heaven here”
“Don’t get carried away” Daniel grinned and tomiwa
pulled his hair. “Hey, watch the hair!!” he cried out.
“ Don’t worry, Annabelle won’t mind how your hair
looks” She winked at him and Daniel blushed.
“I have no idea what you’re talking about” He mumbled.
“Of couse you don’t” She teased.
“ Speaking of which, where is she” Jake queried as he
slung his arm over Tomiwa. “ Isn’t she coming?”
“She will” Daniel shrugged. “ Said she had to attend to
“Probably planning on the perfect clothes and dramatic
entrance for you” Tomiwa giggled.
“ Oh, for crying out loud” Daniel rolled his eyes and the
“Hey Guys!!” They turned to see Sharon striding towards
them with a bright smile. She gave each of them hugs,
making sure to linger on Daniel which made him raise
“Glad you could make it” She piped. “ Not too late. Not
too early. Perfect timing..”
“Damn, Sharon. Why didn’t you tell us you have
elephant dollars ?” Daniel joked and she punched his
“I wasn’t obliged” she shrugged. “ Where’s Annabelle ?”
she finally remembered as she noticed that the girl in
question wasn’t glued to Daniel’s side as usual.
“ Busy” Tomiwa said.
Sharon shrugged. She didn’t really mind anyway. She
led them to the buffet center and they marveled at the
amount of people rushing to gather food. Daniel and
Jake grinned as they saw a very familiar person….
“SEGUN!” They chorused. The guy in question was on a
queue at the food stand with plate in hand and a
hungry look in his eye. On hearing his name, he turned
around and spotted them. He laughed as he moved
towards them and they shook hands.
“The infamous food monger” Jake laughed. “ wetin you
dey find for here?”
“Guy, wetin I dey find for party again?” he replied.
“ Na everywhere wey food dey involved, dem go see
you” Daniel laughed. “ Your future ambition supposed to
“ Na una sabi” Segun replied. “ But jake, how far your
condition. Shey you dey alright now?”
“ Guy, I dey fine now o” Jake smiled. “ We thank God”
“Abi na” Segun agreed.
Daniel was about to say something when he spotted
some one familiar by the pool. The person was texting
on his phone . Daniel recognized him as the man he
met at the hospital when he was leaving the doctor’s
office. He excused himself and moved towards him.
Eric was bored right now. Thanks to his mother’s
stubbornness he was forced to attend this party and
nothing he could say could deter her. She was
conversing with sharon’s mother at the door of the
house and he scoffed when he saw them laugh. Pulling
out his phone, he started texting someone to pass away
time when he noticed someone coming towards him. He
smiled as he recognized the boy.
“ Well well well” he put his hands in his pocket. “ It
really is a small world”
“Tell me about it” Daniel laughed. “ From the look on
your face, you aren’t having fun”
“You guessed right” He frowned. “ You seem to be very
observant and an interesting fellow. Pardon me, what’s
“Daniel” Daniel replied, offering his hand. “ Daniel
“Eric Adekoya” Eric replied accepting the younger man’s
hand in a handshake.
“Adekoya?” Daniel was a bit surprised. “ I believe that’s
the Doctor’s last name”
“Oh yes” Eric replied. “ She’s my mother”
“For real?” Daniel’s eyes replied. “ Wow. It’s just that
she looks so.. so.. so..”
“Young?” Eric completed with a laugh and Daniel
nodded. “ A lot of people say that.”
“Hello boys” Their attention was drawn to the
approaching figure of Doctor Adekoya. “ I take it you’ve
“Yes” Daniel replied. “ Good evening, Doctor”
“Evening” she smiled. “I can see Jacob is here too. I
hope you are enjoying yourself”
“Yes, Doctor. Thanks” He answered.
“ Please excuse me” she said and then turned to her
son. “ Eric, a moment with you. please”
Eric obliged and they both walked away. Daniel smiled
as he watched their retreating figure before two hands
slipped from behind him and covered his eyes. He felt
the hands as he recognized the familiar cold texture of
“Ann” He smiled. “ Who else would it be?”
The hands left his face and he turned around to see her
smiling. His mouth went open at her appearance. She
wore a tight black t shirt with pink design and dark blue
skin tight jeans that revealed her hips with black heels.
Her eyes were adorned with eyeliner and he noticed she
“Lipstick?” He raised an eyebrow. “ That’s the first time
I’m seeing it on you”
“You don’t like it?” she fake pouted.
“No no no. it’s cool” He waved his arms frantically. “ It
makes you look very beautiful”
A seductive smile appeared on her face and he gulped.
What was going on in that devious head of hers now?
“ You really wanna know why I wore lipstick?” she
purred as she moved towards him slowly and wrapped
her arms around his neck.
“ Erm..Yeah” he replied nervously as he noticed her face
was few inches from his. He hoped Jake and the rest
weren’t seeing this. He wouldn’t know how to endure
the endless teasing.
“It’s because..” She ran her lips along his jaw and then
whispered in his ear. “I still owe you your second
She nipped his ear with her lips and then drew back to wink at him.
