Before we moved, i called William and told him that i have decided to keep the two room apartment where Rose lived.
We had taken our Television and DVD to the place and returned to pick the pots and other items. On our way back to pick the pots, we decided to eat in a Chinese restaurant near our apartment. Then we saw them; Aunty Joy, Bonaventure and one other guy i haven’t seen before. They were heading to our apartment. The food in my mouth turned into water as i tapped Maria on the shoulder and pointed at them. They have already walked past where we couldn’t see them; therefore Maria had to jump up and went to the entrance door. She saw them too. One thing was clear. Rose just discovered that we were packing out and she decided to sell out and pick the money.
Our personal bags were still in the apartment including some money; therefore i wasn’t going to abandon them. It was going to be a game of wits between me and the Italian contingent.
The first thing i did was to call Rose.
“Did they give you the €2000, they promised if you show them we i live?”
she kept quiet.
“I thought i could help you but it is a pity you don’t know what i am capable of doing. I need you to vacate that place before i come there again” i said.
I called Aunty Joy, “It is a pity that after everything we have gone through together, you still think you can use force to capture me. You travel around Europe with silly thugs with the intention of trapping me down. Let me ask you, what are you going to do to me if you catch me?” I said.
“Since i begged you to release those girls to me and you refused, i have no option than to start looking for them. I am not interested in you, i just need my girls back” she replied.
“Rose told you that i am moving. You gave her my picture and promised her €2000. I was the person who told her to call you and tell you where we live so that i will know where you are when i want to move. Do you think you are more clever than i am. I know where you are now. Did you see a black car that drove past you one minute ago, i was in it heading to Stockholm central. You can have my apartment because i have removed the things i needed” I lied.
Two minutes later, i saw three of them hurriedly walked past me and down to the train station. I followed them from a distance to make sure they entered the train, then i walked back to the apartment with Maria and picked our bags.
I called Joy again, “Rose sent Someone who saw three of you hurriedly walked back to the train station and entered the red train. She is monitoring you people for me. You think you can bribe my people” I said as we stepped out to the road and stopped a taxi. “Go straight to Uppsala with this cab, pay for a hotel and wait for me there. This cat and mouse game won’t end if the rat doesn’t enter the trap” I said to Maria.
She protested and asked that we go together but i refused. I told her that i wanted to see the end of those people.
“They have been tracking me all the way from Venice to Marlloca and now to Stockholm. If i don’t do anything about it, they will find us wherever we go next. Just do what i say, i will be fine” I said to Maria who was crying.
I called another cab as soon as they moved and told him to take me to Rose’s apartment. I had a feeling that the Italian contingent was heading there next since they already believed that Rose was a double agent. They were definitely going to torture the poor girl but i had no pity for her. She sold me out for €2000, despite everything i did for her. That was what the Biblical Judas did to Jesus Christ; i believed Jesus forgave him but as for me, i was going to use Rose to trap those bastards down.
We got near Rose’s apartment and i asked the cabman to wait for me. I tiptoed to the entrance door and heard Rose crying. I also heard some small noises coming from the room; that was it.
I tiptoed down to the cab while calling the Swedish emergency number. When the cops answered the call, i told them in English, that someone was trying to kill his wife. They asked for the number and i told them.
I waited in the Taxi for three minutes before i saw three Police vehicles drove fast and packed in our front. They jumped out together and walked ran up to the apartment. I didn’t want to follow them for the fear of being a victim of circumstances.
Another two minutes later, I saw three of them in handcuffs while Rose was covered with a blanket. They were blood all over her face. An ambulance had been called as i heard siren coming up the boulevard. The entire neighbourhood had come out to witness the drama. I came out of the cab and joined the Public. As Aunty Joy was being pushed into a waiting Police vehicle, she saw me. I thought she wanted to raise her head up and say something but the brutal Police officer knocked her on the back of her neck and she collapsed into the back seat of the vehicle. I smiled as i watched my handiwork unfolded.
Immediately they put Rose in an Ambulance and left, i called William.
“There is a problem” I said.
He asked what it was and i told him that the house has knocked. The police just broke into the house and arrested some people who went there to torture the girl that was staying there. William was very angry with me and i understood why. I told him to go to the Police immediately and tell them his brother whom he gave the apartment was no longer living there and that he has told the girl staying there to vacate it a week ago. He agreed that it was a life line and drove straight to the nearest police station.
Do you have anything to do with this?” That was the taxi driver asking me.
“No, how much is your fare?” I asked.
“I think you have something to do with this because you went to that apartment before the police came, i saw you” he said.
“Mr Man i asked how much your money is?” I said.
“You are under arrest for suspicious activities” He said as he brought out a police badge and flashed it before me. My taxi driver was a Police officer.
