The Governors Daughter: 23, 24, 25
CLARA (The Governor’s Daughter)
Val’s side of the story continues
I woke up once again to find myself lying on the floor. This time around my hands weren’t tied.
Only my legs were tied together with a strong rope. I managed to sit up, resting my back on the
wall as I thought of my next move and how to survive. Of course I was very lucky to still be alive. I
felt it was just a matter of time before Charles’s decides to finish me up for good.
I only had a faint hope that my colleagues would soon start looking for me and with the help of the
cell phone I left in my car, be able to trace my location. Yes it really wasn’t the best shot for my
freedom and I knew I had to think out of the box to find a way to secure my freedom. I also
couldn’t help but wonder what Charles and his gang did to the other phone I came into the house
I was still busy with my thoughts when another young man walked in with a plate of food. As he
dropped the plate on the floor beside me, I drew back and stared at him suspiciously. Three tiny
pieces of yam with red oil was the meal he brought for me in a plastic plate. I shook my head with
disgust and looked the other way.
‘’I advice you eat this food because I don’t know the next time you will be served again’’ he said rudely
‘’please what’s the time?’’ I asked. He scoffed.
‘’9:30am, Monday morning’’ he replied.
‘’are you really sure?’’ I asked. He sighed and left the room without another word while I shook my
head and thought of how to escape.
It really wasn’t long before an idea came into my head. I smiled to myself and prepared my mind
Hours later, the guy who earlier brought food for me came in to take the plate. His eyes instantly
boiled with rage as soon as he noticed that I didn’t touch the food. But he said nothing, instead
came forward and took the plate.
‘’I want urinate. I have been holding it all day’’ I said to him calmly.
‘’you can piss on yourself’’ he replied rudely.
‘’I also want to shi.t. You know I can’t shi.t on myself because you guys won’t be able to touch me
afterwards and I know the stench will chase you all out of the building. So kindly take me to the
toilet’’ I said with a cunning smile. He hesitated for a moment before walking away. Few minutes
later, the huge guy that hit me the previous day showed up with a dirty smile on his smile.
‘’it’s only 4:30pm and you already want to shi.t tough guy’’ he breathed with a short laugh.
‘’I will take you to the toilet but don’t try anything funny because I won’t hesitate to shoot you and I
don’t miss’’ he threatened, tucked the small pistol he was holding in his trouser, bent over me and
untied the rope used to bind my legs while I heaved a sigh of relief.
Roughly he jerked me up and dragged me towards the toilet. He definitely was a strong guy and I
knew I needed extra strength plus my training to beat him in a fight.
On getting to the toilet, he threw me inside and shut the door, whistling a song as he waited for me
outside the toilet.
I soon settled in the toilet where I took time to rest and perfect my plans. After relieving myself, I
flushed the toilet, made the sign of the cross and breathed deeply before knocking on the door to
get the big guy’s attention.
Just like I expected, he opened the door to drag me out but unknown to him I was very much ready. Before he threw open the toilet door, I scooped enough toilet water from the toilet pit and
splashed the water on his face as soon as he opened the door, putting him in great discomfort and
disarray as he spit, cursed and wiped his face with great energy, putting down his guard. It was
the opportunity I needed to put him down. One kick to the stomach plus a choke hold were enough
to knock him out. I quickly grabbed his gun and headed to the room I heard Clara’s voice the last
Breaking into the room wasn’t easy and the noise it generated as I kicked on the door alerted the
other guys’ guarding the house. But I still had time to break in and grab Clara before they could
get to the room.
Unfortunately the difficult part was escaping with Clara. The girl was very weak and scared. She
couldn’t run very fast and before we could get to the back of the building the other guys weren’t far
behind. The only escape route was scaling the same fence I used in gaining access to the house
but unfortunately Clara couldn’t do that without help.
Yes we luckily made it to the fence but in the process of lifting up Clara for her to grab the edge
and scale over, the other guys closed in on us. One of them fired a round which whistled over my
head, making me lose my grip on Clara, she instantly fell on the floor while I nervously pulled out
the gun I had with me and got ready for a show off as they surrounded us and waited for my next
move. I really was lucky the guys never kept firing at us.
I desperately counted them. They were seven guys in all. Four of them pointed their guns at me
while the rest simply stood and waited for the next move from me. I was lucky they didn’t attempt
shooting again. Perhaps they wanted me alive or perhaps they were scared that a shootout
between us could lead to Clara getting shot.
I was totally surrounded and I knew there was no getting out.
‘’let the girl go and we will let you go. You know you stand no chance. you can’t shoot all of us
without getting shot’’ one of the guys demanded quickly as my eyes went back and forth like a

Val’s side of the story continues from the last scene of the previous episode
‘’let the girl go mister. Just take this rare chance we are giving you. You are totally outgunned and
outnumbered’’ the young man demanded again while my heart furiously pounded as I wondered
what next to do. Of course I knew I was in a tight fix. I equally knew they weren’t going to let me
get away once I let them have Clara. Letting go of Clara or my weapon was never an option for
‘’you have just two seconds left to make up your mind’’ he demanded as he took a step towards
me. I breathed deeply and aimed at him, I wasn’t going to let them take Clara again without a fight.
I knew once I take the shot that the rest of the gang was going to fire at me but then I really saw
no other option left than to die fighting. I saw death staring and beckoning at me once again. I
never knew I was going to die so young. Sweat appeared all over me as I got ready to fire my last
But fortunately for me before I could press the trigger I spotted agent Jenifer and three other
agents closing on them from behind. The bad guys all stood facing me without watching their
back, an opportunity Jenifer and the other agents used in getting close within range. I heaved a
sigh of relief. Yes it was a perfect timing. They came at the right time to save my sorry a.ss.
‘’drop your weapons right now. You are totally surrounded’’ Jenifer instantly barked, shocking the
hoodlums who all turned to see that they were all sitting ducks. They instantly dropped their guns
without hesitation while four other agents jumped into the compound from the back fence I earlier
tried using to escape with Clara. I was very much surprised and relieved at the same time. I never
knew the house was already surrounded by my colleagues during the show off. Clara instantly got
on her feet and hugged me tightly while agent Jenifer drew close and smiled at me.
‘’thanks for saving my as.s’’ I breathed gratefully.
‘’we heard the gunshot and that helped lead us to this corner’’ she replied with a smile.
‘’yes I was shot at when trying to escape with Clara, luckily the bullet missed its target. How did
you find the location?’’ I asked curiously.
‘’the prints found on the bullets we got from the first crime scene came out yesterday. We ran it
through the police database with us and discovered that it matched two officers working with the
state police headquarters. We tried reaching you but couldn’t. After picking up the officers, they
confessed that they gave out weapons to Mr. Charles but never participated in the kidnap.
They gave us more than enough details to help. But when we still failed to reach you today, we had to
track your phone signal which eventually gave the same location the police officers gave us during
questioning. We had to get as many teams as we can to come over here because we didn’t know
what to expect’’ she explained quickly while I breathed deeply.
Another agent soon showed up with a frown.
‘’we only saw one huge guy inside the house. Mr. Charles isn’t in the house’’ he informed us.
Clara returned to her relieved parents that same evening while I was asked to go home. According
to my director, I still have to face disciplinary action, something I really wasn’t comfortable with. I
felt after all the risks I took that everything was going to be fine.
‘’we still have some decisions to make concerning your conduct.
So go home and wait for our call’’
was all I was told. Of course I felt bad. It really was painful to know that my efforts weren’t really
appreciated. I almost lost my life for the job but no one took notice of it.
I returned to my apartment later that evening, so tired and hungry. I had a long shower before
dozing off in my sitting room. I barely had slept for few minutes when a soft knock on my door
brought me to my feet. I opened the door to see Vivian smiling at me. She looked so sexy in a
cleavage revealing green gown which showed off all her curves. I swallowed hard as I stared at
‘’I came to thank you and equally apologize over all I said to you the last time. I made you a great
meal. I know you will be very tired and hungry. I also heard rumors that you might be suspended
from your job over all that happened. I’m here to keep you company. I’m here to be with you
through the night. That’s my small way of appreciating you’’ she breathed softly, taking a step
towards me and planting a kiss on my cheek that sent sweet sensations down my spine.
(Unknown to anyone, Mr. Charles was quietly seated in his car which was parked right in front of
Val’s compound as he waited for nightfall. You can’t imagine the surprise on his face as he saw
Vivian walk into the compound. Nevertheless nothing was going to stop him from finishing what he

After enjoying the delicious meal Vivian brought me, I regained enough strength to joke and play
with her. But as soon as the clock stuck 8:15pm, I knew it was time to ask her to leave. Of course I
was still reasoning with my head instead of my d—k and no matter how tempting her offer of spending the night at my apartment looked. I knew it was something I would end up regretting the
‘’Thanks so much for the meal, you are really a life saver but please don’t bother spending the
night here with me. I’m very fine on my own moreover I need to be alone to think over my life and
the way forward’’ I finally managed to say to her with a smile. She slowly frowned and tried to
‘’I offered to stay here with you from my heart. You don’t have to ask me to leave. I’m a big girl.
You have nothing to worry about’’ she pushed on, trying to sound innocent and cool but I knew
deep down things really weren’t as she said. And seriously I wanted to be alone to think over my
life just like I earlier told her.
I stood up, drew close to her and rested my hands on her shoulders, caressing them softly.
‘’my dear I really wish to be alone tonight. I have some things to figure out and you being here
won’t give me the space I need.
I appreciate everything you did today but please I want to be
alone’’ I begged. She reluctantly shrugged and stood up.
‘’very well then, let me pack up my things’’ she finally accepted with a smile while I heaved a sigh
At exactly 8:45pm, I led her to the door but on opening it we both saw Charles smiling devilishly. It
was just as if he had been standing there for long. You can’t imagine the shock I felt. It was just as
if I was facing a ghost. It looked so unbelievable and unreal. It was as if my eyes were playing
games with me. I couldn’t believe a guy every security agent was looking for was standing right in
front of my apartment as if everything was fine with him.
Before I could react, Vivian fell back on me, holding her stomach and gasping while Charles
grinned as he stepped closer. I never realized he was holding a knife. I never saw it coming. I
didn’t realize on time that Vivian fell back on me because she was stabbed. It really happened so
fast moreover the doorway was a bit dark for one to notice much and before I could process
everything, toss Vivian to a corner and defend myself, I felt a sharp pain on my stomach.
Charles wasted no time in stabbing me. He grabbed the opportunity without the slightest
hesitation. He was just a man on mission.
I tried to hold myself and fight back but he was very much ready. He stabbed me over and over in
the abdomen, forcing me down on my knees as I slowly hit the floor.
I gasped for breathe as I tried to sit up while he focused his attention on Vivian who was struggling
to get on her feet. He reached for her, stabbing her multiple times on the back before throwing her
body on me.
‘’you shouldn’t have come between Clara and i. you tried to destroy my hopes, my investment, my
life. You turned me into this. I’m not proud of this dirty game but I have to do this to save my own
a.ss. And to you Vivian, you shouldn’t have been here tonight. I never knew the b—–d was f–k.ing
you and your cousin at the same time’’ he breathed as I fought with great energy to keep my eyes
from shutting down.
‘’now please hold this knife for me’’ he added with an evil smile as he forced the weapon to my
right hand. I was too weak to do anything.
‘’when the police eventually find your bodies tomorrow, They will quickly come to the conclusion
that you Val came home very depressed and took it out on your girl who came to be with you.
After stabbing her, you realized what you did and stabbed yourself. With the news Clara will
confirm that you were never what she thought you were and it will give me the opportunity to
reclaim my love. She will realize that I kidnapped her just to save her from you and not to harm
her. good night Mr. Val’’ he added with an evil grin, pulled off the hand gloves he was wearing,
tossed them into his jacket and left the room without another word.
I saw death before me once again. It was as if I was destined to die young. However the mistake
Charles made was not making sure I was dead before leaving the house. Perhaps he wanted me
to slowly bleed to death. The other thing I was equally yet to figure out was if he now knew that I
was a federal agent.
Anyway I managed to crawl to the table where I left my phone and quickly dialed Jenifer’s number
with my last strength.
‘’help’’ I breathed and collapsed.
