I jumped out of the bed with all the strength my legs could muster and stared at Alhaji’s lifeless body.
Fear gripped me as I didn’t know what to do.
Alhaji lay still on the bed with a sombre expression on his face like he was sleeping.
The aphrodisiac he had taken to enhance his performance must have caused him a heart attack but8then who would believe me?
I wasn’t a doctor and had no background knowledge in medicine but then common sense was enough for me to reach my conclusion.
The reality and fear surrounding the fact that the hotel management could charge me for murder added to my trepidation.
I had to act fast and smart.
With trembling limbs, I hurriedly wore my clothes, ran into the bathroom, splashed water on my face, put on light make up and opened the door to leave but on second thought, I decided to delay for sometime before leaving.
I didn’t want the receptionist to suspect that anything was amiss.
I left the room five minutes later and headed to the receptionists desk to receive the payment for my service.
“How is Alhaji?” The lady-receptionist asked beaming her professional smile at me.
“Alhaji is fine o,” I replied struggling to hide my anxiety. “He’s still sleeping.”
“Hope everything is alright?” She asked looking suspiciously at me.
“Sure,” I replied with an anxious smile on my lips. “I came to collect my payment.”
The receptionist opened a drawer in front of her seat and retrieved some bundles of Naira notes.
She handed 3bundles to me and announced: “that’s 250k.”
“I thought you said the job was 450k?” I asked looking perplexed.
“Yea,” she replied. “The hotel management is entitled to 200k while you take 250.”
I wasn’t in the mood to argue so I took the 250k she gave me and zoomed out of the hotel as fast as my legs could carry me before Alhaji’s lifeless body was discovered...
