Toun tried fighting Dotun off but he was too strong for her,
he grabbed hold of her neck and squeezed hard, intent to snuff the life off her
body. At that same time, her PA hurried in and immediately saw what was
happening, she shouted in alarm and ran back to her desk to call security.
In a matter of minutes, the security men were in the office
while a number of staff stood at Toun’s office doorway, curious to see what was
happening. Dotun was dragged out of the office, kicking and screaming;

“You are a witch! You can’t get rid of me just like that! I
hate you Toun! I promise to ruin you…” he screamed.
Toun sat on her chair, still trying to catch her breath, he
had squeezed her neck too hard and she was already feeling dizzy.
“Can I get you some water?” Judith, Toun’s P.A asked.
Toun nodded and as soon as the water was brought to her, she
drank it all up.
“Whatever could have happened?” One of the staff asked. “I
guess Mr. Dotun is mad because she took back her position from him.”
“Are you a novice? Didn’t you know that Mr. Dotun and his PA
has been having an affair for so long and that he spends the company’s money on
her? I guess Madam Toun found out and that’s why she kicked him out of the
office and I support her a hundred percent. That Aisha was already getting too
pompous! It was as though she was the GMD instead of the P.A.” The second staff
said.
*******
Toun had made a statement at the police station and had
several eye-witnesses who confirmed what they had seen. ‘Dotun had tried to
kill Toun.’
Dotun stayed behind bars wondering what was going on with
his life as everything he had planned was slowly falling apart. Soon one of the
police officers let him out of his cell and took him to a room where two men
spoke to him privately. By the time they were done, Dotun was crushed. They had
informed him that the company was suing him for mismanagement of funds and that
auditors had found that monies had disappeared under his care hence, the court
had ordered his assets and bank accounts to be frozen till further notice.
When they told him the news, Dotun shook his head knowing
instinctively that Toun a hand in all this. 
He sat in his cell feeling as miserable as ever.
********
Aisha had moved back into the house with her daughter, she
was tired of staying with her brother and a recent spat with her brother’s wife
drew the line for her. She had not seen Dotun all day as he had left the house
in anger that morning, saying that Toun had left his sister locked up in the
police cell. Berna hadn’t gone back to school yet and Aisha was going through
the prices of the airlines to see if she could go back to school with or
without Dotun providing money for the flight fare. She was still surfing the
internet when she heard a knock at the door.
Aisha rushed to open it, thinking that it was Dotun but to
her surprise was Toun.
“Toun! It’s so nice to see you…” She lied.
Toun walked into the house silently, ignoring her greeting.
“Toun! I’m saying hello…besides, why are you strutting
about my house like some land owner or something…”
Toun looked at her and said.
“At first, it felt surreal to think of  you and Dotun as a couple but the more I
think of it now, the puzzle fits perfectly.”
“What are you talking about?” Aisha asked in surprise.
“Don’t pretend darling…this is no reality show!” Toun
said.
“What’s gotten into you? Toun, is everything alright?”
“It took me a coma to realize my true back stabbers and it
was shocking to see that the woman I gave shelter and a job could turn around
and stab me at the back.” Toun said.
“I still don’t know what you are talking about, Toun.” Aisha
continued.
“How long did you laugh at me? Three years, four, five? It’s
a pity that people never repay kindness with kindness instead they repay it
with nothing but treachery.”
“I don’t unders…”
“Don’t you repeat that word again or I’ll slap your face!”
“Slap me? Toun! Are you mad? How dare you threaten me in my
own house?”
“Hahahaha…your house? The house Dotun bought with my
father’s money? Hahahahaha…you must be joking.”
“So? If he bought it with your dad’s money so freaking what?
At least, he loves me much more than he’s ever loved you.”
“The both of you would make a great couple.” Toun said,
clapping her hands in mock glee.
“You’ve made your point, now leave my house!” Aisha shouted.
“Hahahahaha….it’s so good to be ignorant. Aisha, I am here
to kick you out! I’m sorry baby but this house, was bought with my money and I
am getting it back.”
“You are stupid to think that Dotun would let you do that.”
“Go and ask him in the police cell and by the way, you guys
can get married right there because I’m in the process of divorcing him.”
“You’re a fool!” Aisha spat.
“No! You’re the bigger fool!” Toun said as she brought out
her phone and made a call. “You guys can come in now…” Toun said into the receiver.
Aisha looked at her in hatred and soon four hefty men and a
woman walked into the house.
“This house has been taken by the court and will be sealed
till further notice.” The woman said.
“What? Toun! You will pay for this!”
“Don’t worry your sweet head Aisha. I’m already paying for
it! You see, I’m paying dearly for trusting people that were never meant to be
trusted in the first place.” Toun said, then addressing the men she said. “Throw
her out of here!”
One of the men grabbed Aisha and hurled her over his shoulder.
“Toun! Don’t do this! No! Leave me alone! My daughter is in
the house! Let me go!” Aisha screamed.
Toun said to the other men. “Her daughter is inside, kindly
bring her outside and also bring out her useless belongings and toss them out
on the street.”
Toun watched as the men dragged out bags of clothes and
personal belongings from the house and threw them outside the gate.
Aisha clutched her daughter and cried loudly, making
desperate calls to Dotun who never answered her calls.
Toun waited till the house was practically empty and watched
as it was sealed.
