CHAPTER THIRTY-NINE

*****

The constant buzzing of his phone by his bed side woke him up. Adam reaches for his phone, his eyes loosely open, he answers.

”Hello?”

”Adam?” came the voice

”Lita?” He calls out ”Are you okay?”

”No!” she sniffs

He seats up, his eyes shooting open, he reaches for the switch and then turns on the light ”Whats wrong?”

”Last night while i went to book flights for our travel back to town today, i was almost kidnapped. My neighbor alerted the police, i didn’t see their face”

”What?”he jumps up.

”And, that’s not all, i came home today, someone has trashed our place, Steve’s computer, everything. It’s supposed to look like a robbery but..nothing seem to be stolen.”

Adam is folding his fist ”I told you to stay out of town Lita, till all this blows over, why are you back in town?”

She sniffs, her voice thick with emotion ”How can i not bury my husband Adam? How! And you know the worst part, they are branding him a rogue cop? He was a good man Adam, a good man” she cries ”My baby is going to be born and he is already going to be known as a son to a criminal..he was a good man, he was Adam!” she cried

His heart pulled at her cries ”It’s okay Lita”

”The service is by 12, just family but i am scared Adam”

”I would be there, don’t worry. Don’t stay at home, i would send someone to get you in a safe hotel for you and your family, after the service, first flight out, you understand? I was not able to protect Steve, least i can do is keep his family alive”

”Okay”

The line dies.

Adam is frowning into his phone as he sends a text to one of Jaime’s guys back at the house to get her.

His face hard. He checks his time, it was barely 4. He couldn’t go back to sleep. He would just wait it out till they are up so they can get back.

*

Alexander opens her eyes to find him staring at her. She smiles..

”Hey beautiful!” he reaches out to caress her face

She yawns and then stretches ”Hey boyfriend..is it just me or you look extremely hot this morning?”

He laughs ”Well, i am a handsome man Miss Beckington” he cocks his lips in a sly grin

”That, i have come to notice, the angels would be jealous!” she stretches her neck and then kisses his lips.

He watches her roll off the bed, naked, she strolls to the window, pushing the curtains slightly open she stares at the bright beautiful city from the pent house.

”Last night, it seemed so beautiful and peaceful, the light, the music, the calmness, now..its full of bustling life and honking of car horns..can i just rewind it?” she stares to face him, her soulful eyes boring into his as he stared at her from the bed, his chest bare, the duvet the only thing that covered his nakedness from her view.

”Yes babe, you can..i can buy you an entire city, and you can have all the peace you desire, with me by your side ofcourse”

”Ofcourse” she smiled, tucking a tendril dangling infront of her eyes behind her ear.

His eyes travelled her body, etching every curve, every fold, every line in his mind, he smiles.

”What?” she asks shyly, sinking into the curtain. ”Like what you see?” she flutters her lashes

He laughs as he swings his leg down, standing up and then walking to her as the duvet falls away from his body ”Loving what i see actually” he pulls her away from the curtain and then to him,he kisses her, slowly.

”I wish we can be here forever?” she breaths against his lips

”Sure we can..” he kisses her back, slipping his hand to cup her soft bottom ”Want do you want to have for breakfast?” he nipples her lips

”You?”

They both smile into each other’s mouth

”Lord! i created a monster!!” he chuckles, she laughs

”Bite me”

He did, just a nip to her lips.., she moans.

”Large size pizza, a bucket of chicken, casserole and all sweet things” she whispers against his lips, kissing him as she breaths every word.

”That i can handle” he kisses her back, then pecks her nose. He steps away from her heading to the bedside table to place a call.

She listens to him, she goes behind him ”And chicken, i like well spiced chicken”

”And bring your special seasoned chicken, my girlfriend seem to be a sucker for those, yes, thank you and erm..anything else you think we would like, thank you” He cuts the call and then stares up at her, her head is bent towards his ”Anything else beautiful lady?”

She shakes her head ”Er…nope” she blinks.

”Okay..” he smiles getting up and reaching for his phone as it begins to ring, she groans

”I can not answer it if you say so but…i kinda love this woman that is calling” he pouts

She sticks out her tongue ”Of course, i don’t mind coming second place when it comes to her”

”Nah, she may be the Queen of my heart but you..you are my world” he kisses her again before answering..”Hello Mother?”

*

”So, i see you are having a duly needed vacation?” Gem says talking to the florist ‘No, red roses for the room and then white lilies to run down the hall” she tells the florist who nods, ushering staff with banquet of flowers and directing them.

Gem is heading into the hall to supervise the work done for Jaime’s party tomorrow.

*

”Yes mother, who has been squealing on me?” He is staring out the window now, he spares Alexander a glance, she is plopped on the bed, her tummy on the bed and her but facing him as she flipped through a magazine. He smiled, he walks to her, he bends and then places a light kiss to her bottom, she yelps, he laughs walking away.

”Silly!” she bites her lips

*

”No, the news are loud, atleast this time, it’s all lovey-dovey of you and Alexander. How is she, i bet she is super better?”

Gem sights Jacob with Salim, the Chief of police, she goes to them ”Tell her that whatever she is doing to make you sound and look like this, she should continue”

*

”Oh mother, you really do not know what she has been doing , but that is for me alone..” he blushes, Alexander sticks out her tongue. ”But she is good, yes, her wound is all but healed, and she is up and about making my life not that i am complaining” He turns away from her, he rests at the wall ”You know, tomorrow’s party isn’t necessary Mother?”

”Oh silly, it is your father is mighty proud, let him do what he wants for his son, you won’t ruin it for him, you understand?”

He smiled ”Yes mother, how is the old man, i sent him some documents to look over last night when i got back in the city, did he look through them?”

”Oh yes baby, and guess what? He was over the moon. Africa is huge, and to think that you have got sponsors with your company to go down there? It’s amazing, plus..i saw the blueprints of the plan you have..oh, bless your heart my son..you are indeed not of this world. I can’t help but imagine what life would be for the underprivileged over there when they get light and water, food, education and free heath care..though it would drain you financially but-”

”No mother, its a good project. We already have worked out the modalities and then done a chart on lost and won resources..we can handle it. I just need dad to look it through. ”

”You know you are president now of the Heritage group..” she points out

”Yes, i still need my father, i may have the total say when it comes to my company and all my investments but Heritage group began with father, yes i may be the President but..now that i have stepped into his shoes, i still need his wisdom, and that he has plenty”

He could hear her smile ”And you wonder why your father loves you”

He smiles ”He said he would tell you what he thinks tomorrow”

”Oh i see, he is trying to lure me in to make sure i attend by all means”

”You know your father well Jaime, plus..i also need to ensure you bringing Alexander, i did tell her she is my special guest of honor”

He turns to face her ”Oh..i just need to get her into a dress made for queens”

There was a pause ”I am happy”

”About?”

”That you found someone worth it to love again.”

”Mother?” he moves further away ”I ..”he trails off, he moves further away as his heart began to beat fast.

*

Gem gasps covering her mouth, Jacob and Salim stare at her

”What is it Gem?”Jacob reaches for her, her face breaks out in a smile

”Oh Jaime, you have my blessing! Oh..wonderful double news! Of course, secret yes but you know your father is…” she laughs ”Okay baby, see you tomorrow and don’t you dare be late, the entire city would be here” she cuts the call and stares at her husband

”What is is Gem?”

”I think soon, we would be planning an even bigger event” she leans in and kisses his lips, she walks away with a happy gait to her feet

”Gem, what did my son tell you, what is he planning?”

”Secret! Secret!” she laughs waving at him as she danced away, ”Only for his mother’s ears for now Darlene, be patient” she giggles. Jacob laughs shaking his head

”What do you think she is happy about?”

”If you saw the news about my son yesterday, i think you can guess”

”Oh! Love, and other things?”

”Possibly” Jacob says , then he frowns ”Jimmy?”

”Well, no one would ever think he is any of the things Steve’s proof said..he has been going about his business as every one, all his business partners were checked out and are clean, his accounts..influx and outgoing is neat..he is like your every day saint close up. ”

Jacob sighs ”I really don’t know what to think or believe anymore. Jaime wouldn’t ever lie, and someone did lock that poor girl in the storeroom and that man attacked her..i need to know what’s going on so i can protect my family..i, i do not understand how to deal with this Jimmy situation”

”I know. The Steve’s document are kept in the archive, until we have something substantial, it can’t be used. It is none and void.”

”But…i can’t seem to get rid of the fact that Jaime had said that Jimmy had purposely hit the tree when he carried pregnant Gem years ago…i mean, Jimmy came to the hospital crying and- i remember that scene so long ago. Gem lying there in blood and me a broken mess and then Jimmy and-, ” he trails off ”Or the fact that Jaime said Jimmy had tried to kill him,, threaten him,…he told me the reason why he began acting the way he did was because of Jimmy wanting him to step down so he can make president and then Mayor…, i – i don’t know what to think about my son. Yes, nothing has been found about him but, Jimmy is my son, and ..he has never been saintly..but he had never shown this side of him ever, so you understand my delima?”

Salim nods

”I want my son to be innocent but..all these..all this things revolving around him scares me, scares me for Jaime, for Gem..and..the innocent woman who swears that it was Jimmy who locked her in”

”I understand”

”He would be here tomorrow”

”What do you want me to do Sir?”

”Just put an eye on him please, i..i don’t know, i don’t know” he trails off

”Don’t worry Sir, aside that..we would be here to ensure that the event runs smoothly..all hands on deck”

”The Prisoner?”

”The judge would proceed with a trail for him tomorrow. We asked him if he had any family member he would like us to call, he said he had none”

”Fine, he should pay for his crimes”

”Yes sir”

He turns away ”Oh by the way, did i tell you how mighty proud i am of Jaime,he sent me this-”

They are walking out to the garden.

*

”All the food you eat goes to your ass” he observes taking a glass of juice, Alexander chews off the last fleshing thigh of the chicken and then licks her fingers

”More flesh for you to hold on to ain’it?” she blinks

He smiles ”You are naughty Beckington”

She flutters her lashes at him ”You are not complaining are you Lockswire?”

”No..most definitely not” he leans towards her

A knock on the door, he pauses staring at it. ”Saved by the knock” he winks at her and gets up, picking a rope he throws it over her shoulders, he grabs another and then wears it, he leaves the bed and then opens the door slightly.

”Good morning Sir,Ma’am?” He nods

”Hello Adam, good morning” she says between mouthfuls and waves, going back to her food.

”What’s wrong?”

Adam steps away, Jaime steps out and then closes the door realizing he needed to talk.

Adam began to talk. After a few minutes Jaime stares at him ”You think it’s Jimmy?”

”That’s an understatement, it is Jimmy..but ofcourse no proof. I called a few contacts, they said the dude been a saint..not even meeting up with a miscreant- just office, home, meetings, and a few dinner dates…so how can you accuse him of organizing people to kidnap a pregnant woman much-less toss a house of a dead cop? You can’t! This is making me frustrated because i know for certain it’s Jimmy and i would just love to-.” Jaime sights his folded fist

”You would not do anything stupid!” he orders

Adam doesn’t answer.

Jaime sighs ”I had Salim still keep tabs on him” he explained ”He would let me know if Jimmy has been up to no good”

”You think your brother is stupid? If he is a criminal you think he wouldn’t know he is being watched and cover his tracks”

”He can’t be that good Adam”

”The devil is detailed Sir!” he hisses

Jaime says nothing .

”Look, i hate to be a party-pooper and i know you want to..stay here with Miss Alexander but..Steve’s funeral is in two hours and i have to be there for his wife, i promised and-”

”Adam, it’s fine, i would just tell Alexander”

”No Sir, the other guys would come and-”

”Adam, Steve’s death is connected to me to isn’t it? so i should be there too..we would go to the funeral.” he taps his shoulders

”Thank you Sir”

Adam leaves. Jaime enters the room, and then shuts it.

”Did something happen?” Alexander stares up at him, her eyes questioning

”No..just need to attend the funeral of the cop who died, Adam’s friend. ” he rests his back to the closed door.

”Okay!” she frowns ”You seem sad”

”Yeah, Just think about the guy’s family..” he rubs his brows and drops his hand.

”Wife and unborn kid, Adam mentioned” she gets up coming to him , she doesn’t touch him.

He nods

” Can i come with?” she cocks her head to the side.

He shakes his head ”I would drop you off at home, i bet Tinny-B missed you” he stares at her and then stares at the door leading to the bathroom”You should shower. Plus i may stop by the company and see what i missed and i would come back home to you”

”Okay” she turns away heading to the toilet, she pauses ”can i make you feel better?”

He smiles ”I feel great being with you already ..so..”

”Right” she turns away reaching the door

”But you know, the news the other day spoke about how we need to manage water, so…bathing together saves water, and i would hate to be the one misusing a gift such as water mother nature gave us”

She smiles ”Well, come on then” she disappears , he follows her.

They spent less time lathering themselves with soap and more time kissing and making love under the shower.

He carried her, legs wrapped around him, lips against lips, hips buried against hers, glued together and moving to the rhythm of their bodies until all they held onto was each other, as passion intensified and moans and groaning became nothing but sweet music till they fell together, over the top and shattering into each other’s arms.

”I love you!” he whispers into her ears and then he kissed her till she was out of breath.

*

Alexander alights from the car, Jaime steps out opening his wallet ”Here” he gives him to her

”What? Your cold card?” she stares at it in surprise

He takes her hand and then places the card flat on her palm ”I may not be comfortable leaving you with any one other than Adam but he needs to be at a funeral and i with him, but Greg is trustworthy to, plus there would be a few others here at the house and also with you. Mother said you are her very special guest tomorrow and i would hate to not dress you hope like a special special special guest” he reaches out to tuck a hair behind her ear

”Three specials?”

”One for mother,two for me?’

”How so?”

”You’ll see, come tomorrow” he leans in and then kisses her ”see you later, you can do anything you want with that”

”You know you shouldn’t leave a gold card with a girl who you have no idea how she spends money” she calls out

He laughs as he slips back into the car ”You think i would care if you finish what’s in there?”

”You should, i can take out all your money!”

He shrugs ”Don’t care” he waves as the car pulls away

”Oh Jaime, you silly man!” she smiles biting her lips and then shaking her head

”Look who decided to come home, tell me tell me TELL ME ALL!!!” Tinny-B comes behind her and then squashing her in hug, Alexander squeals in laughter

”Oh, never!!” as soon as Tinny-B lets her go, she dashes into the house with Tinny-B chasing after her.

*

Officers filled the reception area.

Lita, stood with her family talking with Adam. Jaime waited. They had had the burial at the cemetery for officers, and the reception was moved from the house to a downtown event area, since they couldn’t do it in their home.

Adam is saying something to her, then he brings her to him ”This is Jaime Lockswire, my boss”

Jaime takes her hand, it still shook, her eyes were red , he places his hand to hers ‘I am so sorry for your lose. I didn’t know your Steve but Adam tells me he was a wonderful and upright man. I know it hurts and i know it feels like all hope is gone, but it would be okay. You have to be strong for you, your family and your baby”

”Thank you for coming and i am trying but..he was my family, my all. I have no idea how to go on like this without him” she sniffs

”You have me Lita, you have your family.” Adam says to him

”And i would do everything within my power to support you. Adam told me about the almost kidnap, i called the Chief of police to look into it, and you said your house was trashed and mostly your husband’s stuff?”

She nods.

”I would drive down after to check it out”

”Okay”

Jaime stares at her, wanting to do more ”Do you mind if i cater to some of your needs, atleast it’s the least i can do”

”You really don’t have to..” she trails off

He smiles ”I need to. Atleast you need a place to stay and..do you work?”

”School Teacher, but..haven’t been able to do that since all this”

He nods ”That is fine, we can get you something else-”

”Sir, she doesn’t have to be in the city, right now it may not be safe for her” Adam points out

”But..i can’t just drop my life here and go”

”Adam is right, you need to be away for a bit, okay. Your parents stay out of town right?”

”Yes, West of chocolate City.”

”But that is where you were almost attacked?”

”Yes!”

”You know what, i have a friend and he has this amazing cottage up for sale, it’s in a beautiful town and nice suburbs, schools there and ..it’s a place to raise a kid and a family to rest..it’s in Santonia, off the grid of Chocolate City, you would love it there”

”But how do we go by, moving to a new city and-” she trails off

He smiles tapping her hand ”Do not worry about it, i would have someone contact you if that is fine by you?”

Her eyes fills with tears ”Thank you Sir”

”Jaime, call me Jaime” he pats her hand again ”Adam, you will handle her move immediately yes?”

”Yes Sir, the ceremony is over, if you make the calls now, she can be on the next flight with her family”

”Sure” Jaime takes out his phone and proceeds to make the necessary calls ”Hi Christopher, it’s Jaime, about that cottage, i would like to buy it” he says walking away

She stares after him ”God bless his heart” she sniffs, Adam nods

”He is a good man, come, let me take you to your hotel, someone would be there to pick you all up and take you to the airport”

”You would find who did this, who killed my Steve won’t you?” She stares at him, her eyes red

I already know it’s Jimmy..i just need proof ”Yes, i will, i promise” he takes her and leads her to the car as he parents join in .

He pulls away after putting some men to watch over Jaime.

Jaime enters his car a few minutes later and then drives downtown to his office.

*

His secretary stroke PA smiles at him..

”Wow! You look different and Happy” she says standing by the door,

”Don’t be dramatic” he smiles sitting ”Do i have anything important to attend to?”

”Yes, Sir, there are some delegates from the french international firm. They have been in town for two days, despite i told them you were on some personal trip away.”

”Oh? What do they want?”

”You are the President of the Heritage Group now, what do you think they want? Investors who have been following your business charts and seeing how successful you are know that they need to cash in, everyone wants to do business with you”

”You make me sound like the best thing to happen”

”You are the best thing to happen, to this Chocolate City and the neighboring cities, so stop living in denial”

He laughs ”You all think highly of me; my father, everyone”

She walks in dropping a cup of coffee on his desk ”As we should, so..i had your designer bring in some suits for tomorrow, he would be here soon”

”I didn’t tell you i was coming in today” he raises an eyebrow

she shrugs ”Doesn’t matter, would have sent him home to you..should i set up a quick meeting with them? I also used to opportunity to invite them for your party tomorrow so…”

”You think for two, what would i do without you?” he teased

”Absolutely nothing. ” she smiles ”I would set up it up and make sure you get your fitting done, the guest of honour should look like a billion dollar”

He smile shaking his head ”Thank you!”

”You are welcome” she leaves him as his phone rings , he gets up with a smile ”Hello Father”

*

”Boss Jaime went to the office, the other guys are with him. I came here as soon as you called.Combed the place, it’s a mess in there ” the man said as soon as Adam alight , he nods entering into the building of where Steve lived.

From the front of the door, everything looked again, but as soon as he entered, he noticed how trashed the place was. It really was a mess.

Cushions were torn inside out, broke vases of flowers, Tv broken in and the stools and table broken into half.

He leaves the living room and the finds his way to their rooms, it looked as worse as the first. He enters Steve’s office area . The computer and work documents seemed worse than the first two rooms.

He stares at the damage, his hands folding into a tight first ”Who did this?” he says in tight angry voice, his eyes bloodshot ” It’s not enough that they killed him, now they trash his home, make his wife homeless and destroy every little memory of him he shared with his family?”

”Sir, we spoke to some of our friends down at station., there has not been reports about this.”

”Ofcourse, there hasn’t!” Adam says turning away ”Jaime called the Chief of police, he should look into it and find out who tried to kidnap his wife” he sighs tempted ” you should go”

”Sorry Adam, Boss also said not to leave your sight so you don’t do anything stupid”

”I don’t intend to”

”You don’t believe that do you?”

Adam smiles ”I just need to ask a few questions that’s all”

”No!”

Adam says nothing, he is walking out the house.

The man follows him. ”Adam!! Damn for fxxks sakes man would you stop!!!”

Adam enters his car and his screeching away.

”Shit!!!”
