He entered and saw an empty bed and a small piece of paper on it. He picked it and found this written on it “fifty four seventy boy accord subset table pole”
As soon as Tony got out of the room, he saw the other nurse who administered drugs to Kate.
“How was she poisoned?” Tony asked the nurse.
“A tall man with an oblong face who called himself her elder brother visited and gave her some snacks and pen drives.” The nurse said calmly.
Tony wasn’t sure who that person could be until he got to Angela’s room. He sat down trying to figure out what had happened.
“Dear, someone gave Kate something to eat which turned out to be a poison.” Tony told Angela and Leah.
Leah asked how a person would come into Kate’s room without any struggle.
“Definitely, the person is known to Kate.” Angela affirmed.
Tony suddenly remembered Doctor Davis who threatened him outside the hospital
“Yes, Dr Davis must be the one. Yes, he is tall with an oblong face. My God!” Tony said out of frustration.
“I didn’t see Kate in her room…” He said looking at the ceiling.
“What! How can that be possible? How?” Leah asked surprisingly.
Angela looked at them and shook her head.
“Kate must have left on her own. I know what she is capable of doing. Dr Davis must have given her something to feign stomach problem and then escape.“ Angela said with a sad look.
Tony clenched his fist, Leah paced up and down the room and Angela rested her head on the pillow with drops of tears on her face.
Later, Tony brought out the note and began to read it aloud, “fifty four seventy boy accord subset table pole…”
Leah came near to see what he was reading and Angela asked him where he found the note.
“I found it on Kate’s bed and certainly she forgot to take it along.” Tony said sheepishly.
“Great! Let’s crack the code. This will give us a clue to where Annie is kept.” Leah said confidently.
Angela tried to come down from the bed but Tony disallowed her. Leah came near and they began to figure out what that code could mean.
“fifty four seventy boy accord subset table pole…”
“54 70 boy accord subset table pole”
Leah asked Tony if the numbers could be an identification or a region.
They began to figure out every possibility until Angela said, “5470… Four digits.”
Tony looked at her and said, “four digits number could be a vehicle registration plates or a specific place.”
“Boy accord subset table pole” Leah tried to find other meaning to it.
“Table? What can we say about table?” Tony asked them.
Leah looked at the table in their room and moved closer to observe it. She bent down and began to observe its features.
“1,2,3,4…Yes, 4 legs.” She said.
Tony nodded in agreement.
“Pole? The pole…” Angela mentioned it while looking around and saw a pole with the flag of their country outside the window.
“Yes, a pole looks like 1…1…1” She said firmly.
Tony and Leah nodded in agreement.
“So, we have 5470…4…1” Tony said looking at them.
“Yes, I have an idea.” Leah quipped…
Will they be able to crack the code?
Will Annie be found?
Who was really after Angela and Annie?
A POLE IN THE DARK (Episode 10)
Tony and Leah nodded in agreement.
“So, we have 5470…4…1” Tony said while looking at them.
“Yes, I have an idea!” Leah quipped.
Before she could say a word, the nurse came in to discharge Angela and they left the hospital.
As soon as they got to the car park, Niyot, a young woman gave Tony a flyer but Angela collected it from him to read the content.
“20 years Anniversary celebrations!” Angela asked Niyot to talk more about it.
Tony went to the driver’s seat, Leah sat near Tony while Angela, who was a bit weak sat at the back.
Niyot bent down to continue talking but Angela asked her to sit with her at the back seat.
“Yes, I am Evangelist Niyot, a drama minister. The Lord called me into the ministry at a tender age while I was still in secondary school in Nigeria.” Niyot said with joy.
“Oh, that’s lovely. Tell us more.” Angela asked eagerly as her heart yearned for her daughter.
She had desired a better future for her daughter to follow God and be useful for His kingdom. Tony and Leah were surprised to see her rapt attention to a stranger talking about God.
Niyot continued: “I was about leaving the hospital when I felt in my spirit to approach you. I want to invite you to this special program tagged, “God of restoration” and it will hold in Madrid.”
“Wow, I did my intelligence and security training in Madrid three years ago.” Leah replied with a smile.
“That’s great.” Niyot responded.
“But we aren’t living in Spain.” Tony added.
“I know. That’s the reason I said I was led to you. I came to visit a friend here in the hospital and will be leaving for Madrid tomorrow. I strongly believe God knows the reason he asked me to give you this flyer.”
Tony turned to her, “We appreciate your kind gesture and willingness to obey God. Thank you!”
Angela solemnly asked, “Can God truly restore all things, including a dear daughter?”
“Yes! He is able to do all things if we trust and obey Him.”
Angela held her hand, “I want my daughter back! I want my Annie back in my arms!”
Niyot admonished her, prayed with them and told them that God will fight for them. They all chorused amen.
Niyot waved at them as Tony reversed the car and zoomed off.
When they got to their house, Tony saw a note on the door.
“Surrender Angela now or else Annie will grow up in solitary!”
He quickly hid it from Angela to avoid unnecessary tension. When they got inside, they saw someone tied to a chair.
Leah brought out her pistol and searched the rooms and then went upstairs to search the other rooms. Tony held Angela, who was visibly afraid closely and they observed the man.
Suddenly, they heard …
Who was this person?
Will Angela surrender herself?
