Episode 9
©Miriam Edem

The whole place broke out in noise as the guy screamed his head off while I went backwards,
"What have you done? The chubby girl among us asked as his partner ran out to ask for help and when he returned with some guys, I was held by them and dragged out while the guy was carried out for treatment.
I began to shout struggling with them as they took me to where I didn't know, then they opened up an empty room and threw me inside.

"Get me out of here! I shouted and attempted to run to the door but one opened a dirty slap on my head that humbled me,
"You're lucky the boss told me to keep you for him else you would have been sorry, he said pointing his Finger at me and left.
I rubbed my head worriedly as I paced round the room alone scared.

What did I do? Love what did you just do? I asked and let myself down on the floor crying as I thought I just brought the worst on myself.
The door opened after some minutes and I raised my head and saw three guys walked in and the boss entered last.
I stood up immediately with my face wet in tears as I anxiously looked at them,

"So you got one of my men blind? The boss asked and I shook my head.
"Ple....please it was a mistake, I replied shaking.

"Mistake? Taking a nail and leaving it in the eye ball of a man is a mistake? Didn't you promise you will make him pay? He asked and my lips were shaking.
"I'm sorry, I'm sorry please it was not intentional, I pleaded whole heartedly.

"And I'm sorry too, take her away, he commanded and the guys quickly grabbed me.
"I'm sorry please forgive me! I screamed but one carried me on his shoulders while the rest followed behind.

They opened up another door and there were about 4 ladies there seductively dressed.
"Treat your guest well okay, and oh let me warn you, she's very stubborn, The boss said to one touching her lips and she smiled.
"I'll give her the best treatment, she said and attempted to kiss him but he walked away with the guys and the door closed behind. I was very relieved to see ladies, to me they will be so kind and I just looked at them.

One walked up to me and poured the smoke from the cigarette she held and I coughed,
"Did you just cough? She asked.
"Sorry I got choked, I replied and she pushed me and I landed on a chair.

'Do you know where you are? She asked and I confusedly looked at them.
"Please where am I? Don't hurt me please I only want to leave this place, I replied.

"Leave go where? She asked facing me and the door opened again and two guys walked in.
"The boss wants her, one said to the ladies.

"No problem, she said and walked away from me and my eyes bulged out.
"No! No please I don't want to go help me please! I shouted struggling with them but they dragged me outside and that was when I saw the boss office, very beautiful and spacious.

"What's your name? The boss asked.
"Love, I replied.

"Love? But you don't look like that, he said coming close to me and showed me his ipad and I closed my eyes.
"Open it! He shouted.

"Please I'm sorry, I pleaded when I saw the picture of the guy I busted his eye. The sight was horrible,
'I'll make your life miserable and you'll pay! He shouted and I opened my eyes to see the boss bringing a syringe to my hand.

"What are you doing! I shouted but the guys held me down and he injected me and the guys immediately left me. My mouth was opened looking at them as the world was crumbling before me,
"Take her out of my sight! I heard the boss shouted and I felt hands dragging me in that condition outside.

I was in hell. I saw myself hitting myself in anything I saw as the drug tormented me. Even in that torture, the guys still came in, held me and injected me Three times a day.
Within two days Love was the shadow of herself. My body was filled with bruises. Imagine someone constantly on drugs in an empty stomach, no food or water was given to me and probably on the third day the gate opened and I was lifted up to sit down but my head bent sideways and I felt water pouring on my head down which I opened my mouth gasping for even a drop to touch on my tongue.

"Does it hurt? I heard a voice and I slowly opened my eyes to see the boss smiling at me and I closed my eyes back.
"No no open those eyes of yours because I have something to show you, he said beating my cheeks and I opened my eyes and He showed me the picture of the guy I damaged his eye.

His right eye was bandaged and I took my eyes from it,
"What should I do with it? Haven't you punished me enough? I weakly asked him.
"Punished you enough? Do you know who he is? Do you know the money I've spent and the damage you caused fixing a big rusted nail in a human eye? He asked.

"I don't care because he deserves it. Next time he will zip up his trousers when its necessary, its not everybody he sees that is meant to be messed up, I replied
"The guts of you still speaking and I like your spirit. You'll be so useful to me when I am done breaking you, he angrily said and boom! I felt an injection on my lap and my eyes bulged out with the force it landed and he stood up and left.

For more than a week I was constantly on drugs that I almost went mad. The gate opened and I saw the boss again, this time I was too tired to fight and fell down on my knees begging him,
"Forgive me please, I kept saying and he raised my head and smiled.
"Take her out, he commanded the guys and they dragged me out. That was when Love had a bath for a long time.
A good food was given to me and a bed was given to me to sleep, but my mental health was tampered with. Love was no longer who she used to be. At first I thought the drug was my problem, but that night I slept without being injected, I woke up with my body shaking and I began scattering everywhere. I started shouting and began hitting the door like a mad dog and no one opened up.
The next morning the door opened and my eyes were so wild,

"Why were you disturbing our sound sleep Love? What do you want from us? The boss asked.
"Drugs, please drugs, I replied very hungry for it scratching My body and he smiled and touched my face.

"Look at you, but you didn't want it, he said.
' I want it please, where's it? I asked and he shook his head.

"You're not going to have it because I was using that to punish you, he replied.
"You haven't forgiven me yet? I asked.

'Forgive you? You have to earn it, he replied.
"Tell me what to do I'll do it, I said and he laughed and left the room.

"I'll do it! I'll do anything just mention it! I shouted running to the door and he stopped.
"Come with me, the boss said and that was how I followed him.

I became the right hand of the boss. He opened up everything about his dealings with me and the money involved every week from the drugs. He had other big men who partners in the business with him while he takes the biggest percentage,
"This is our oil well, this is our NNPC but there's a problem, he said after about one month of me staying with him.
"What is it? You know you can tell me right? I asked.

"We are having problems shipping out drugs to those who wants it, looks like they are suspecting some fowl play, he replied.
"Why not seal their mouth and pace your way with money? I asked him.

"You'll implicate yourself especially if it gets to a righteous officer who will be bent of knowing why you're bribing them. We only pay the necessary money we are to pay and appreciate them you know, but I think they have received reports that drugs are going out of Nigeria to other countries and its too tight for us, he replied.
"What should we do now? I asked.

"I think we should be the container, he replied.
"You mean? I asked and he stood up

"I'll get a doctor, a professional one for that matter who will hide the drugs in your bodies, he replied.
"Isn't that risky? I asked.

"Hey babe he is a professional and people has been doing it. You'll put on clothes and you'll be searched but they will see nothing, don't worry I know how to get you all out of the country easily, that's my job, he replied and I was feeling uncomfortable but he touched my neck and kissed it.
"You know I can't let any harm come to you right? He asked and I nodded.

"I trust you, I replied and he opened my mouth and placed a drug on my tongue and I smiled leading him to bed myself. Yes, that was one of my obligation to him and that's my life now.

A week later I was in the special room when I heard the bell and I came out with my cigarette knowing that's the call for a meeting, and as usual I was just on the side of the boss. That position was something everyone was not pleased with especially the ladies I was once taken to. They felt one of them should be that close to the boss and not me, and I've been hearing the guys gossiping wondering why the boss chose me of all people despite my stubbornness.

"Good news, one of us just got discharged this evening, though he wanted coming here but I told him to have every rest his body needs. And most importantly what I discussed with you earlier, the doctor will be here in Few days time.
During this period stay clear from drugs until the operation is successful even after the operation else you can be knocked out. You all have to eat healthy because its neccessary, the boss said and he looked at me.
"Including you Love, he added and I scoffed.

"You know I can't stay without drugs, I told him.
"That's an order Love! You will be part of this operation and I have every thing prepared for you all already, he said and poured out something from a bag and we saw fake passports and everything we need to enter Our designated country.

"South Africa? I asked him when I saw mine.
"Yes and you're in charge, don't you dare mess up, he replied and looked at the rest.

"Am I understood? He asked.
'Yes boss, everyone replied.

"Dismiss, he said and they bowed their heads and left leaving me with the boss.
"Are you serious? I will be away from drugs Why? How do you expect me to do that? I asked shouting at him.

"You have no right to question me, go and get yourself ready and stay clear from it else you'll answer me, he said pointing his finger at me and left the hall. I was so mad and returned back to my room locking myself without seeing him as I struggled when I noticed he entered the room and packed every drug I stored there even cigarettes.
I could not eat the food given to me either when I was hungry for drugs, and after four days we were called out.

I sluggishly left my room and the boss hugged me from behind,
"You refused seeing me for days now my love, he said and I took his hands from my waist.
"Are you happy now? Excuse me, I said and left him.

The operation started with the guys while the boss was there to inspect as the rest waited outside for our turn.
The door opened and the boss asked me to come in which I did,

"Wait wait, won't you make me sleep off or something? I asked when I saw the doctor coming close to me with his tools.
"No love, you don't need drugs. You're a strong girl right? The boss asked and stood behind me to hold me and right before my eyes, I saw my hand opened and wraps of drugs was neatly arranged while I screamed until I lost my voice. I was stitched back and I was sweating profusely when I was led out of the room. I wondered why I didn't hear the screams of the guys who entered there before I did, then I looked at the ladies waiting for their turn and saw fear in their eyes.

I returned back to my room after the boss promised to see me when he is done with the inspection but I felt someone was in my room.
"Who's there? I asked and the guy I damaged his eye came out from the toilet smiling at me. I gasped and wondered how he got into my room,

"So its true, it's true you turned out to be the boss prostitute after doing this to me huh? He asked.
"Well welcome back, I replied and attempted to Leave but he drew me back on the hand I was opened and I screamed which he covered my mouth and pinned me in bed.

"What are you trying to do? Don't you dare touch me because I belong to the boss! I said to him..
"Do I look like I care? You took my eye and I won't let you go that easily, he said and that was when I saw him with a full substance of drugs in a big syringe. It was a Size that has never been used on me before when I was punished, clearly that will be an overdose.

"No no don't do that, I said trying to struggle.
'I heard no drugs should be taken when you have some under your skin already. I can't wait to see the reaction, he said and injected me on the same hand that was opened and quickly ran out of the room.

I lost my voice as I laid in bed weakly, and within minutes, I Was foaming from my mouth as I threw myself from the bed and landed heavily on the ground.
"My love, I heard and the door opened,
"Love! I heard the boss screamed as I faintly saw him carrying my head and I passed out.
