NEW STORY : Adventures of a Street Girl – Season 1 Episode 11

We arrived at Michaels office, and it was
TIGHT!. It was a three story building; it had a
car park that could contain enough cars and
a white electric fence. With a black gate that I
noticed had a security system. Looking at the
building, I’m not sure if it had lots of walls, it
had more of glass windows and all that. In
fact the building was mostly made of glass.
Kind ‘a like the picture of a building I saw in
a newspaper some days ago, it was called
NNPC towers. But Michael’s office wasn’t as big as that. But it was still big.

So we were at the gate, and this gate didn’t
look like any other type of gate that I have
seen before, it’s very different. Sitting in the
car, Bello brought down his own side of his
window, stretched out one of his hands and
pressed a button on a strange looking
speaker, I think it’s called an intercom. Then
something really cool happened, a voice came
through, a voice! Can you imagine! Wow,
Michael should put that in his own gate too,
it will be awesome. Anyway, the voice that
came through was a masculine voice and it
asked who it was that was at the gate, Bello
told the voice in the speaker his name, and
immediately the gate started to open.

The first side of the gate would go in while the
other would go out, no one stood there, and it
did it on its own. Its speed of opening wasn’t
too fast and it wasn’t too slow, it was

Driving through, there were cars parked in
arches, cars like; BMW 1 series (5 door),
BMW 7 series, BMW X5, the Phaeton, an Audi


A8 and a Range rover. I know you must be
thinking how I know all the names of these
cars; well Michael has them in his house,
every one of them, even the car we drove in
was an Audi A8.

Bello parked the car close to one of the other
cars, I think it was a BMW X5. He got out,
came around, and opened my door for me (I
sat at the back seat of the car). I got out and
said to Bello, ‘’this place is dope’’!….
Bello had nothing to say, I mean what will he
say? He just smiled and closed the car door.
Then he walked in front of me, leading me
into the building, me walking right behind
him. Getting in there, there was a receptionist
at the front desk, a female receptionist and
she was really beautiful, she was dark in
complexion and well dressed. Bello walked
straight to her and said one word, ‘’Mr.
 She immediately picked up a
telephone and said, Bello is here. Then, she
dropped the phone back in its cradle and told
us that we were free to go in. Without saying
a word, Bello walked towards the elevators
that were at the right side of the front desk.
There were two flower pots for each elevators,
the elevators were two. Bello pressed the up
button of the elevator and after a few
seconds, the elevator opened. He walked in, I
followed, the elevator doors closed. And then
we waited for the elevator to take us to our
destination. I stared at the clock watching it
as it was counting down I was so excited to
know what Michael will think seeing me in his

The countdown got to zero, the elevator
opened and we were right in an office, which
means the elevator was our only exit, there
were no doors or stairs anywhere, I didn’t
wait for Bello this time, I just walked out of
the elevators like my life depended on it, like I
had no care in the world, guys I was on a

This particular part of the building was a bit
quiet, not much people were around, it was
painted white and the floor had a grey carpet.

There was a dark lady, a very dark, beautiful,
super hot lady sitting at the front desk and
she had a very big thick afro like she was in
the sixties or something, her afro was a
mixture of red and black and she had on big
round earrings, she looked like she was in her
20’s so I wondered why she had a hairdo like
that. Getting to her I smiled and said ‘’hi’’.

She was filing her nails, chewing a gum,
making popping sounds, having no care in
the world. When she heard me say hi to her,
she looked at me and smiled, and her smile
was to die for, seriously if I was a guy I’ll
seriously date her. She got up, and I really
looked at her, curvy and cute but not really
tall, did I mention she is hot too? She looked
at me, from my head down to shoes, and the
look on her face said she approved the way I

‘’ Babe, you look good’’, said the afro receptionist.

‘’Thanks’’….i thought that was the appropriate thing to say at the time.

‘’Michael is in his office I’ll let him know you’re here’’, she walked out of her tiny but comfortable front desk and walked to the back of the reception area she was wearing really good high heeled shoes. I stood there looking at her walk, when she had gone I then looked around, taking everything in.

A few minutes later, Michael came stalking in, afro lady right behind his heels , yelling behind
him saying,

‘’Michael’’, wait!, don’t go walking in that manner, you’ll scare the poor girl,
………..Michael! MICHAEL!!!!

But Michael was hearing none of it, his face a
mask of anger. I took a step back; he kept
walking forward in big, strong, steps. I took
another step back, holding my bag strap in a
very tight grip. And Michael just kept on
walking, I bumped into Bello and I totally
forgot he was still in the same room with me.
bending my neck backward I looked at Bello,
then I considered using him as my shield, but
I think Bello wont like that, but I did it
anyway. I quickly scampered, and used Bello
as my shield, he was my best option for now.

Michael stopped in front of Bello and said’’
without wasting time, Bello moved his body away from me, leaving me to deal with a very angry Michael ,I guess he’s also scared of angry Michael. What in the world will I do now?

Seeing Michael the way he is right now isn’t
really good. Michael is freaking scary when he
is angry. The muscle in his lower jaw kept
ticking; like he was biting hard on his upper
and lower side jaw, and his forehead was
creased I guess he was trying to control
himself. We were staring at each other and I
felt I had to at least try and diffuse the
situation that I’m in. cos its obvious Michael
doesn’t want me to be here. So I got right to

‘’ Michael I know you’re mad….

‘’Mad? Mad’’!……he let out a scary laugh that was downright frightening. …. ‘’ you haven’t seen mad yet, Fola, you haven’t at all.

‘’But I just came to surprise you, I didn’t
mean any harm, if it is that you don’t want
me in your place of work, then say so, and I’ll never come here again’’

‘’You think its because I don’t want you
here? Like I don’t want you to know anything
about my type of job?. Is that it’’?, said

‘’yes, Michael, that’s it. I’m sure you just want me to stay out of your ‘’business
’’ (I used two fingers from each hand to signify a quotation mark…I was beginning to get pissed myself, just because I decided to
surprise him he’s going all king kong on me,)

I’ll get out of your office. I turned around and
quickly ran to the elevator. Hitting the down
button as fast as I could. Michael ran after
me, yelling my name, telling me to stop, Bello
was right behind him, but they were too late,
the elevators opened and I stepped right in.
Hitting the button to go down, the elevators
closed itself. The last thing I saw before the
elevator closed was anger mixed with fear on
Michael’s face. I knew he was angry but why
was he scared?. Anyway I got down to the
reception area, and ran straight for the exit,
the cute receptionist yelled for me to stop but
I refused to answer. Getting to the gate I
realized that someone from somewhere would have to open the gate for me, and seeing as no one would do that, I was quite scared and confused cos I really wanted to get away from Michael.

Luckily for me, the gates opened , a car was
driving in, I used that opportunity to quickly
run out , as I ran I heard Michael yelling my
name again, still I ignored him, then a car out
of nowhere drove right in front of me,
stopping me from running, a guy dressed in
black came out of the car and dragged me to
the backseat of it, I was struggling but he
was stronger, placing his hand on my head
he bent me a bit forward and made me enter
the car, I was lying face down in the
backseat, my right arm supporting me on the
car floor, I tried kicking but he held my legs,
turning it sideways and arranging me to a
sitting position then he got it and sat beside

There was another guy in the back seat, and
he helped his friend pull and arrange me into
the car, my back was to this friend of his, so I
elbowed him with all my strength but this guy
was so strong, he didn’t budge. So I
screamed out Michael’s name….MICHAEL.!……

The guy that got out of the car before
slapped me, making my ears to ring, then the
guy holding me down placed a white
handkerchief on my nose forcing me to
breathe in whatever substance they had in the
handkerchief, within seconds I was out,
hoping to God that these kidnappers wouldn’t kill me, God please let them not kill me.
