THE TROUBLESOME SPIRIT (Episode 9)

"What?, what's the reason for that?. Why will the police want to
search my room?" i asked desperately.



"they just want to search all
the rooms in the lodge.
According to them it's the
procedure. You are not the only person, so you have to come as fast as
you can or else they
might break into your room
when it gets to your turn" he
explained patiently.


"fine i'll be there" i murmured half-heartedly, breathing deeply.

It really took me about two
hours to make up my mind on
returning to the lodge, because i was so scared that the police might
find something in my
room. A lipstick, lock of hair
anything incriminating. I
feared.

Though I was so sure that i
wiped my room clean before travelling, but they were
experts and i was scared
something could be found
somehow.

However I finally returned to
my lodge very late in the afternoon with the hope that
my room has been broken
into.
But on the contrary it was as i left it {still locked}.
I quickly met the hostel
president with questions in my heart and Immediately he saw me he
smiled, offering his hand for a handshake.

"it's very fine you showed up
today. All the rooms that are
yet to be searched will be searched tomorrow. Some
students travelled like you did which is very bad and as a result the
cops decided to
search the rooms of available
students today while the locked ones will be searched
tomorrow whether the owners
return or not" he explained,
settling my curiousity.

I returned to my room a bit
relieved and satisfied, quickly cleaned up everything in it one more
time, washing the
bedsheet Nmeka laid on over
and over. Infact i made sure
my room was very much in
order before resting that day. My room was so clean that the three
policemen who searched it early the next day
commented on it.


"seems like you are the
cleanest student in this lodge. Your room is so clean" one of them
said to me as he tossed around my properties, without suspecting a
thing. I smiled nervously.


Unknown to them the room they were searching was the
main crime scene and they left without finding anything,
leaving me a bit relaxed.

"What next?" i asked myself as i watched them leave. I bolted the door
as they left
and took a sigh of relief with
my eyes closed.


Immediately,i heard a voice
right there in my room calling
my name slowly"JUUUUDE, JUUUDE..."

I opened my eyes and
behold.... it was Nmeka sitting on my bed.
