As the detective walked back to his office, his Blackberry beeped. It was a message. Simultaneously, it also rang.
“Detective, did you see the pdf file I sent to you now? We found it in the victim’s pocket during external analysis. I thought that it might be of use. It’s a memoir of sort”
“Yes Agent Rose. Though I haven’t checked it, but I have a strong feeling it’s the final installment of a memoir we have here. I would get back to you”
The detective checked his message and clicked the bold message on top. Just one click was enough and writing came upon the screen. He smiled as he took out his glasses to read. He began
Kate is my heavenly stamped wife. From the first time I helped pick up her note that had fallen down beside the central library staircase. The feeling I had, am sure no man ever had it before. I can’t really explain those feeling with words. She had every physique I wanted in a woman; a voluptuous body, raised hips, oval face, fair skin, white teeth. I can’t really finish listing them. But she had one problem “she also had a boyfriend”; a guy named Daniel Adebanjo, a swarthy guy with a rather ugly face. He has just one pair of sneaker that he isn’t shy to wear every day. You would always see him with open teeth; had it been that they were white, it would have being a welcomed development, but they were brown that made anyone predict he was wild. I believed he smokes marijuana even though I never caught him with one.
My anger and hatred grew anytime I saw him with Kate, with his hands around her neck both giggling as they walked. I knew the smiles on her face were fake. She wasn’t really happy with him. How can she really be happy when she isn’t on her destiny path? After all who choose love over money? Before you even talk of Romeo and Juliet, I tell you that it was a play written by Shakespeare. The simple truth is what I have said.
I showed Kate what money can really do to one who suffers from it. In no time, her beauty begun to shone like the golden ball that rises daily from the eastern skies. She would smile ten times more than I ever saw her did when she sits at the front leather seat of my gray Toyota Odyssey. It was truly a happy time.
I remembered that sunny afternoon when I heard a primitive hard knock on the door of the flat I had rented close to the under G campus gate. I opened the door, who could be more primitive if not Kate’s former boyfriend. He had red on his face and he kept blabbing and threatening me with a pointed finger. I waited till he was through, then I called Kate from inside, I put my hands around her neck and asked her if she would go with him. She beautifully declined…
Dejected,the poor boy turned to leave. I called out to him and said:
“What just happened is called human displacement, it’s a just world, but there must be winners and losers”
That was seven years ago. Kate and I are two inseparable pairs now. In less than 24hours from now, we would be legally called husband and wife even though I married her naturally seven years ago when I set my eyes on her.
The die is cast. I lay down my pen…
“Bulls eyes”, the detective shouted as he ran out of his office towards the interrogation room. Agent Rowland was stared at the surprised exclamation made by the detective.
“Sir what is it”, he asked.
“Pack my bag Agent; I have a plane to catch”
“But sir the case is stil—“
The detective was out of sight and had shot into the interrogation office. Mr Adebanjo was startled by the busting entry of the detective.
“Mr Adebanjo and Miss Kate, am very sorry for th—”
“Now you come to beg, you can be very sure to see my lawyer in the next 24 hours”, Mr Adebanjo barked.
“Sir if you would excuse me, Agent Rowland would confirm your release papers and you will be free in the next 30 minutes”
The detective moved towards the door and held the handle, he then turned back
“A little sad news to ruminate on as you leave; Dayvid stated in his will that should he die, his properties be willed to Mrs Kate Tokura. Unfortunately Miss Kate never attached Tokura to her name which nullifies her as an inheritor… enjoy your blissful wedding”
“The case is solved; I would send the reports to you in 2 hours.” the detective said excitedly as he moved towards the exit door”.
The Team A leader looked at Agent Rowland who seems undisturbed by detective Greins weird behavior.
“The case is truly solved like he said. Detective Greins is the best at what he does” The Agent said “it’s all over”.
