Nadia opened her eyes, she was lying down in the hospital. Sitting by her side was Ruth and Mama, ”she is awake, mummy she is awake” They’ve since started calling mama since Nadia came back, she has been more than a mother to them.

”Stanley, where is Stanley, she said trying to stand up, where is Stanley? Ruth and mama held her down and tried to stop her from standing up . ” ”don’t hold me” she shouted, I said where is Stanley?

Stanley is fine, mama answered her, but you have to relax first, why would you ask me to relax, Nadia said, do you think am a fool, she turned to Ruth, Ruth please tell me the truth, where is Stanley, don’t lie to me, you are my sister, so please tell me. Nadia Ruth began, Stanley is fine, he is in the other ward. Nadia screamed at her, stop lying to me, I heard the doctor loud and clear, I heard him say, they lost him, why are you people lying to me, Stanley is dead and you are all lying to me, why? Why?

Mama turned to Ruth, and asked her to go and call Frank and Stanley for Nadia. Nadia insisted on going with her but mama told her to lay still and Ruth go and call them. Then Ruth stepped out, moving towards the male ward.

”Ruth, Ruth, is that you? Ruth he called out, Ruth turned to see who was calling out her name like that, ”uncle, ” ,she shouted, what are you doing here? Oh Ruth! he cried out and held her in an embrace, I have been looking for you. We have been looking for you,. ”We?” Ruth repeated, who is we?

Mr Ojo: your aunty and I have been looking for you, please Ruth, you have to forgive us, please my child! Ruth looked at him and smiled, uncle I hold nothing against you, by the way what are you doing here?
Mr Ojo: your aunty is here, she had an accident and she was brought here!
Ruth: you mean aunty is here? Let’s go to her.

Ruth followed Mr ojo and they went to see Mrs ojo in her room. She was shocked to see Ruth.

Ruth: oh my God, aunty what happened to you?
Mrs Ojo: Ruth my child. Please forgive me, I am so sorry for all I did to you, please forgive me, my life, our life has not been the same since I drove you away, please my child, forgive me am so sorry please, she tries to come down from her wheel chair to kneel down but Ruth stopped her!

Ruth: Aunty no no please don’t kneel for me, everything works together for good to them that love God, you drove me to my destiny, you drove me to my happiness. You drove me to favour. You drove me to peace. Infact I should be thanking you for driving me because if you didnt drive me I wouldn’t be where I am today. God used you to change my life, so I am saying thank you to you. Infact that day you drove me happens to the best day of my life. Because that day, God blessed me with my own family. So aunty thank you, I hold nothing absolutely nothing against you both. I have forgiven you long time ago.

The Ojo’s looked at her and imagined how wiser and beautiful she has grown to be. Then she asks of their children and they gave her the terrible news of how they all died one after the other. Ruth felt very bad for them. Even though they treated them bad, she loved them like her sisters and brother. Then she remembered that mama had sent her to call Frank and Stanley and she suddenly got up.

Ruth: uncle, I have to go I was going on an errand before I saw you, aunty I will check in you again before we leave this hospital,
Mr Ojo: Please don’t leave without coming, there is something we want to tell you.
Ruth: no problem sir, I will come. I promise.

She turned and left the room as they both stared at her leaving with so many thoughts in their hearts.

Episode 26

Nadia sat patiently waiting for Ruth to return and it wasn’t long before Ruth came in with Frank and Stanley, who still had a bandage in his arm. When Nadia saw him years glowed from her cheeks as she held him in a warm embrace, oh thank God you are alive. For a while I thought you were dead, I wouldn’t know what to do if I lost you, she held onto him so tight like he will disappear if she let’ him go.

Finally she let go of him, ”I heard the doctor say we lost him, and I thought it was you, Nadia said. No no you got it all wrong Frank responded, he was talking of the second guy who was shot among the kidnappers, he lost so much blood and didnt survive it. How about their leader? Nadia asked.

You mean Dagger, frank answered, he confessed to everything and said they wanted to kidnap your friend Vic, and mistook you for her, they wanted the dad to pay a big Ransome for her but unfortunately they got you instead of her. ”Where is he now? ” Nadia asked. Its so unfortunate , because he is also dead. He slit his throat with a razor blade after confessing. He said he rather dies than spend the rest of his life in jail. Nadia kept quiet for sometime, justice is served she finally said, then she tried to sit up again. And then she felt a sharp pain underneath her bosom. Aaaahhh! she shouted and looked at herself, then she noticed it!

What happened she screamed, where is my baby, where is my baby? Why am I not pregnant anymore, where is it ? She asked squeezing Frank on his shirt.

Nadia please calm down, when you fainted and was rushed in here, the doctor said your baby was not having enough oxygen, they had to take you straight into the theatre to bring it out, since we didn’t know when you will wake up. A fast surgery was done on you to bring out your baby, but unfortunately it was dead before they brought it out. Nadia started weeping and crying . Ruth held her and they both cried together. She demanded to see the dead baby and they took her to see it. She cried as she carried it and wept bitterly, ”my child though your method of conception was an abomination, but you were not an abomination, I want you to know that I love you, I wouldn’t have allowed anything to happen to you, you were my reward from my weeks of suffering, you were my price from my weeks of torture, I am so sorry that I couldn’t save you, please forgive me my child, I am so sorry….., Nadia kept on crying until the nurses came and collected the dead baby from her and took Nadia back to her bed to rest. The twins, mama and Ruth sat by her. It was a sad moment and they want to be there for her. They had all grown to love the unborn child and have deeply prepared for it’s arrival but God know a why it had to be like this. They knew within them that tomorrow was gonna be a new day for them.

Nadia losing the baby was it good?
