Tangle Episode 15
The next day, a few minutes past twelve, Captain Thomas sat down in a bar putting on not his official uniform but a casual dress and downing bottles of beer. He kept checking his wristwatch as if he was waiting for someone. A lady stepped into the bar, gorgeously dressed in a very sexy outfit. Her long hair and eye shade obscured her face so we didn’t get a good look at her but she catwalk stylishly to where the captain sat.
‘Good afternoon sir’ the lady greeted.
‘Afternoon lady’ He answered.
The lady removed her eyeshade and flip her hair backward which made us realized who she was.
‘My name is Katherine Abiola, am the one who called you on phone’ Helen muttered with her captivating smile.
Captain Thomas was swept off his feet by the figure he saw before him. She had called her on phone and request they meet here but he never for once thought she could be this epitome of beauty.
‘Ohh, have your seat’ he said pulling a chair for her to seat which she sat on with extreme gratitude.
‘So what did this damsel have to discuss with me?’ the captain asked anxiously. Helen smiled dutifully at the captain’s pleasantry.
‘I need your help, sir, I have some highly expensive goods to import into this country by land and I don’t want to have any trouble with your boys’ she explained.
‘Oh pretty, you won’t have any problem with us as long as your goods are legally permitted ones and their excise duties are fully paid’ Captain said.
‘That’s the problem Captain, these goods cost a fortune, adding those excise duties would raise their price substantially and you know our people won’t buy them if they are too costly’ she said.
‘What would you like me to do for you?’ He asked.
‘I need a safe passage for my goods into the country undisturbed. Am willing to reward you handsomely for it’ she answered.
‘That isn’t a problem for me once you can pay the money and agree to my other condition, your goods will be fine’ he said.
‘We can’t just seal this deal without any affairs going between us, let’s have a sexual relationship’ He proposed.
‘Sorry, I can’t agree to that, if it is money, I can pay you’
‘Then no deal young lady’ Captain said frankly.
Helen stood up and walked away without saying goodbye. The captain sat, still rest assured that she would come back. As the Captain thought, she indeed called him back and an appointment was fixed at a hotel the second day.
