Dear Anita

Episode Ten

I wasn’t comfortable inside the cell, because the floor was freezing cold and I was running a temperature.

I called the prison warden that was guarding my cell.

“Sir, please, I’m running a temperature and the floor is too cold for me.

Could you please get me something to cover myself?”

He looked at me and hissed “you think say na your house be this? ”

He gave me a stern look before returning to his duty post.

My temperature was gradually rising and I kept calling out to him but he didn’t respond.

I had to accept my fate, and only wished for the best.

I squeezed myself to the floor, shivering and praying to God to hear my prayers and help me out of the situation.

Barrister Nathan came back with Liam, and I spotted them as I peeped outside the cell.

When they got closer, I let out a big sigh of relief because I was so worried about Liam and how he would handle everything.

The poor boy had been through so much because of me.

The officer finally opened the cell door for me to go out.

“Commot for here,” he shouted, hitting me with the stick he was holding.

I didn’t pay much attention to that because I saw my brother.

I rushed out of the cell and hugged my brother, asking him, “Are you okay?

How have you been?” I had more questions to ask, but I didn’t want to add to the stress he was already going through.

Liam sounded so dull, his eyes were teary, he didn’t even let me finished, he bursted into tears, and I held him to my self.

“Everything will be alright,” I assured him, even though I knew that things weren’t going well.

That was all I could think of at the moment, I felt it was a temporary solution to my problem.

We went into the waiting room and sat there as I held Liam very close to me.

I wished I wouldn’t let him go away from me anymore.

“Your case is very critical,” the lawyer said, catching my attention after minutes of examining my brother.

I completely forgot that he was in the room, all my attention was on Liam, I needed to be sure he was ok.

The sickness seemed to have disappeared, if only for a moment.

I glanced at the document the lawyer placed on the table, which had my name, my case, and the date for my first hearing.

When I was a child, I had always thought about becoming a lawyer and helping the poor win cases.

I never thought I would be the one appearing in court, especially for such a significant offense.

What do we do?” I asked him, feeling faint.

He placed his hands on the table, closely staring at me.

“Do you trust me?” he asked. I nodded, and that was a yes.

I didn’t have any other choice but to trust him. After all, he was my final hope in life.

If everything failed, I would just rot in jail.

I will take Liam to stay with me, and don’t worry, he is safe.

Your first hearing is on Monday. Just pray, God is in control, he won’t fail you.”

He said stretching his hands to the bag he brought with him, he brought out a bible and placed it on the table.

“This should be your comfort, you will get through this.”

Do you know how to read the Bible? He asked.

I could see the curiosity in his face and I nodded in agreement

I was surprised that he knew about the Bible too, considering his hairstyle.

Dad used to say that men of God usually have low-cut hair.

This guy’s hair was styled differently, so it caught me off guard.

The officer came, but before he could announce that my time was up,

I hugged my brother, shook hands with Barrister Nathan, and then I carried the Bible and made my way to the cell.

However, just before I could reach the prison door, everything became dark.

I couldn’t move my legs, and I just fell to the ground.
