THE GLOOMY CORRIDORS (Episode 11) – Olumide Fatunsin

Josephine quietly closed the drawers and looked through the keyhole. The person she saw wore black trousers but none of his men wore such.

The look on her face showed a great danger was at the door. Josephine began to think of other way out until Anne began to knock on the door.

Anne was the daughter of Pascal who was kept in the underground room by her father. Pascal had locked her up for her refusal to join their illegal business. Though she was involved briefly, her friend warned her against it.

Anne knew their secrets and networking areas. However, the trouble began when she was forced to travel with a special group to Argentina. She had travelled to some countries too.

Anne has another plan but her father had a premonition. As soon as they landed in Ministro Pistarini International Airport, Buenos Aires, she pretended to go and comfort the station when she absconded.

When she heard some footsteps on the staircase, Anne quickly hid behind the door leaving Blanco on his knees.

Paco entered in pointing his pistol at Blanco and told him to bow his head. With an empty bottle in her hand, Anne hit Paco’s head forcefully which made him to scream in pain. It was the cry that prompted Pascal to rush down to the underground room.

Anne took Paco’s pistol and hid behind the door. Immediately her father entered in, she locked them up and hid for a while behind the staircase.
