Dark Night!

Episode 15.

Two weeks finally came and Blessing got all dressed up and waited for Mr Johnson to come and pick her up. Mr Johnson had carefully wrapped the money a hundred million naira cash on a brief case and he had carefully hidden it among some books inside the boot of his car.

Mr Johnson: see how beautiful you look my child. Are you ready to see the world?

Blessing: I’ve been ready all my life.

Mr Johnson: alright let’s go. Hold my hand (he helped her and she held unto him and they went for to the car but just before they zoomed off Blessing stopped him

Mr Johnson: What is it dear?

Blessing: Daddy let us pray.

Mr Johnson: oh my child, thanks so much for reminding me. Over excitement has got me carried away. Okay lead the prayer.

Blessing: ”Thank you dear Lord for this day, you have made all things beautiful in your time. Today is going to be the turn of a new day in our lives, dear Lord be with us, guide us, protect us, preserve us and twat every plan of the wicked in Jesus name. Amen”

Mr Johnson started the car and they drove off. Blessing was beaming with smile as Mr Johnson kept telling her they were close to the hospital. Finally he told her he could see the gate of the hospital and they are about driving in. But just then a black salon car pulled up in front of them blocking their car and four hefty men jumped out. When Mr Johnson saw them he had to step on the brakes of his car. The guys pulled out guns from their pockets and pointed them at Mr Johnson who was shouting.

Mr Johnson: Jesus! Jesus!

Blessing: daddy what is it? What is going on?

Armed robber: shut up silly girl. (Blessing quickly understood what was happening and she kept quiet.) Mr man, where is the money?

Mr Johnson: what money sir? There is no money, please don’t hurt me, don’t hurt my daughter.

Armed robber: shut up, I said where is the money? And that is the only question you are meant to answer.

Blessing: please sir, don’t hurt my daddy, take everything you want but don’t hurt him please.

One of the armed men pointed the gun at Blessing and shouted at her.

Armed man: Didn’t I say you should keep quiet? Since you don’t know how to shut up maybe I should just shut it permanently for you.

He tried to shoot Blessing but Mr Johnson jumped on him and together they struggled with the gun. Blessing was by now shouting and the other men tried to run back to the car. One of them was shouting at the one Mr Johnson was struggling with.

Armed robber: guy waste am, waste am make we dey go, I say waste am.

The sound of the gun shot was the only thing that Blessing heard afterwards. Everywhere suddenly went quiet, and then she heard the sound of the car driving off. Then she felt the liquid flow through her dress, she touched it, smelt it and she knew it was blood. Then she kept touching. Fear gripping the whole of her body and then she found him.

Blessing: no no no no no no Jesus, no no no no daddddddyyyyyyy…….(she screamed and fainted)
