Entering inside his mansion, she saw four
Men and a lady, all in black outfits sitting
down as if waiting for her, this is true
because, as soon she entered, the lady
saw her and stood up almost immediately.
“Amanda, you’re here.” The lady said as
the men gaze at her.
“Maureen, yeah. Am here.” Amanda said
looking at Potiphar who was in the midst of
“Am sorry Amanda, Michael was a great
soldier.” Potiphar finally said after staring at
her which felt like ages. He is a middle
aged man in his early fifties who looks like
a thirty years old man if not for the grey
hairs he got.
“Hi, am Gunner, I don’t actually think
we’ve met.” One of the men stood up to
introduce himself, he wore a black body
hug inside, topping it with a black suit and
a pair of black jean trouser.
Amanda guessed he was in his late
twenties as she nods a little.
“Godfather, am sorry.” She says as she
immediately went on one knee.
Maureen was confused but she didn’t say
“Get up Elektra, Maureen take her to your
room so she can wear the clothe I bought
for her.” Potiphar said not looking at her.
“Yes father, let’s go Amanda.” She took
Amnada’s hand in hers as she led her to
her bedroom even though she knows
Amanda knew every inches of the house.
“So where have you been, I miss you
alot.” Maureen said but Amanda was quiet,
it was obviously thinking as her mind
wasn’t with Maureen, not until Maureen
“Don’t think too much, Michael was our
friend also.” She said looking at Amanda
who only smiled at her.
Looking at her worriedly, Maureen the
death of Michael is really affecting her and
she felt jealous, to her, Amanda and
Michael shared something she couldn’t
share with her.
“C’mon, let’s go change.” She says as
they both enters her room.
“I think I know what can temporary take
your mind off him.”
“What’s that?” Amanda is confused.
“Don’t ask, just pull your clothes.” She
smiles as she begins unbuttoning her
dress, as she pulls down her bum short
revealing a white g-string beneath, taking
off her her shirt watching Amanda do the
Maureen is beauty to behold, she is twenty
three and she has a perfect body shape, at
about 5ft tall, she has a chocolate thick
skin with a firm breast and a round bum, to
her, she took after her dad’s complexion
but looks so much like her mother who has
Amanda stared at Maureen’s naked body
and smiled, she smiles back.
“So what next?” Amanda asks as she has
taking off her clothes and her panties.
“In the shower.” Maureen says as she led
They got in and Maureen kisses her
immediately, though Amanda wasn’t
expecting it, let her in as her hands went
over Maureen’s body.
They continued kissing, Maureen slide her
hand to her v region, Amanda gave a small
gasp as she starts moaning, she loved her
touch, she really did.
With her index finger inside her honeypot,
she pushes in and starts sucking on one of
her breast, she licks her n—-e as her finger
is still inside her honeypot.
Amanda is moaning almost loudly as
Maureen stops sucking on her breast and
kisses her, with their love making that
lasted twenty minutes.
They came out laughing from the bathroom
still in each other’s arms.
“That was fantastic,” Amanda giggles.
“You know where to touch me don’t you?”
“Of course I do, that’s why we are in love.
I’ve missed your body and having you here
is great.” Maureen smiles.
“I know that and am sorry I didn’t tell you
before leaving Lagos.” Amanda says as
she kiss her which lasted two minutes.
“C’mon let’s wear our clothes, my father is
waiting for us.” She says disengaging from
“I really had a good time, thank you.”
“Same too my heart.”
Fifteen minutes later.
They came out and saw the men we’re still
waiting in the sitting room.
“What kept you girls for over fifty minutes?
Unh?” Potiphar asks.
“We are sorry father.” Maureen
immediately went on her knees.
“Sit down, we have a business to discuss.”
“You all know that MJ is dead, he was a
true son to me. But nevertheless we have
to continue with our lives and let the dead
bury their dead.” As Potiphar says this,
Amanda frowns but Maureen held her
“Godfather, what really happened to him.
How did he die?” She asks immediately, “I
need to know.”
“He died in the last operation, he was shot
in the chest by a cop.” Maureen replied.
“So where is his body?” She asks again.
The men looked at her, she knows the
men in the room except the guy who
introduced himself as Gunner. The one
seated on the sofa wearing a dark
sunglass is Viper while the tall man close to
Potiphar is his right hand man who is thirty
two, his name is Yakubu but the crew calls
him Big Daddy. And among the men,
Gunner was the youngest who is now close
“His sister took it away.” Big Daddy
She kept quiet as Maureen motioned her
“Now, there’s a bank at Maryland, they
would be transferring money for Senator
Rogers Okorocha, now according to my
informant, inside the bullion van is the sum
of seven hundred million naira and security
would be tight as hell but not to worry, we
just have to intercept along eastern road.”
Gunner looks at Amanda then brings out a
map as he places it on the center table.
“We can’t miss it or we will lose the
money.” He says.
Potiphar nodded, “that’s why we are
gathered here because I want the five of
you to carry out this mission.”
“You’re joking right? Didn’t you hear
security would be tight and you want the
five of us to do this deal?” Viper says
Potiphar looks at him and he understood
he wasn’t kidding.
“Lady Elektra, Rocky, Gunner, Big Daddy
and you Viper are going to do it. Guns and
Ammunition will be provided. So get ready,
you leave in one hour time.” He says as
he got up then he looks at Amanda,
“Amanda can you do it?”
Saying no would be fatal so she answers
in the affirmative.
However, Amanda felt the crew was lying
about Michael’s death.
