“i think i’m now ready to go back to my family,…

“ she announced.

Mama was so happy to hear this,….

She has always wanted to reunite Angela and her

family before leaving the country,.

”Pls i can’t go alone, i want you to accompany

me to my village, i dont know if i’m asking for

too much,… I want to show the whole world the

superwoman that saved my life and that of my

unborn child”

“I’ll gladly follow you home my daughter,….

You’re a source of blessing to me, you brought

happiness into my life,…. Once that is done, i’ll

happily travel to London for my check ups”.

”thank you mama, but you never told me about

your proposed trip” she asked surprisely hugged

her.

”I was in lost of words to tell you that,.. I’ll

quickly inform my friend of our planned journey,

she’ll love to accompany us”.

“ok mama, that will be nice”.

Angela went into her room to rest, she la!d down

thinking of how her mother would accept her and

her pregnancy without asking for the father,..but

she was ready for the outcome of it,,… Her

protruding stomach could be noticed easily

because of her big belly button….. she was lost

in thought and didnt know when she slept off…….

Vanessa remembered Richard doesn’t know the

truth about his biological mother,….. She decided

not to reveal all her father said until she visits

home,… She doesn’t want her brother breaking

down,…… She faked a smile on sighting her

brother.

“What’s up, big sis,… How’re my cuties, your

hubby and dad” he asked her.

“They’re all cool, daddy sends his regards,“ the

word daddy came out as if she was forced to

pronounce it.

”Sis, you don’t look happy,… You look gloomy,

what’s wrong? ”

She heaved a sigh.

“I’m down with malaria, but will be ok,…… What

happened to your phone,… I’ve been calling your

line but it’s switched off, you scared the s–t

outta me”.

“I lost my phone last night,…. I’ll get a new one

today,……”

She noticed he lost some weights,…..

“Richard, have you been sick?,.. You dont look ok

to me,… How’s your girlfriend doing?, hope

you’re still dating her? “ she asked him.

There was silence,….. She noticed her brother is

hiding something from her,…

”have you broken up with her? “” she asked.

“Nope,…. Just that alot has happened this past

months,…. Vanessa,.. I know i shouldn’t be telling

you this here, but i got no other option than to

let you know the truth,…. Benny is not our

biological mother,… ”

Vanessa was shocked, she wondered who told

him that,..

”How did you find out? ”

”she told me,… She told me mum died

immediately after my delivery”

“I don’t understand,.. What prompted her telling

you that? ”

”I confronted her about her evil ways,…. She

ended up telling me that she’s not our biological

mother,…. ”

”Is that all? ”

Richard didn’t expect such response from her….

”You dont seem surprised, what’s going on,….

Does it mean you knew all along that she isnt our

biological mother” he asked with a confused look

on his face,….

“I dont want you missing mum so much that’s

why i kept the truth away from you” she

managed to answer.

“No wonder you never got along with her,.. I

caught you crying several times with a picture in

your hands,…. You always hide the picture away

from me,……. Dont i have the right to know my

real mother? ”

”Richie, i’m sorry for keeping this away from

you,…. I thought she would be a good mother to

us,…” she sobbed.

“I dont know how many more secrets you’re

keeping away from me,… ”

”I’m sorry”.. Was all she muttered.

“Will talk to you later”

He was offline.

Vanessa felt bad for hiding this away from her

brother,… She decided to give him time to

forgive her.

:

Mama’s friend visited her as she promised,….she

brought the gifts she bought for Angela,… She

was so happy to meet her,….

She and her friend agreed to accompany Angela

to her village,…. They agreed to travel next

tomorrow,……

:

:

Mrs Johnson was pacing up and down in her

office,….. She was wondering what must be

keeping the girl that she sent on a mission,…..

Her door slightly opened and the girl walked in,

…..

“Good day mrs Johnson,…..” she greeted her

smiling mischievously at her.

“I dont have time for pleasantries, go straight to

the point,… “ she threw at the pretty girl.

”Madam calm down, you dont have to sound

harsh,… ”

”I have every right to be angry with you,… It took

you months to carry out a simple assignment,….

You expect me to applaud you,…. ”

”at least i succeeded at last,… “ the girl said

smiling.

”Success indeed”

“Your step son is an introvert,… He doesnt go

out,….. He loves the comfort of his home,…. You

dont expect me to barge into his home and steal

his phone,… I had already lost hope when my

girlfriend called me to inform me that she saw

my target in the club, i rushed down immediately

and carried out our plan, though it was risky,…. “

she explained.

”so where’s the phone”.

She brought out the phone from her handbag and

handed it to mrs Johnson,….

“A job well done,..”she smiled staring at the

phone,….. She threw the phone into her handbag

not bothering to check it,.. She gave the girl her

balance and dismissed her.

TWO DAYS LATER

Richard has bought a new phone, he was still

angry with his sister,..

He called Nancy to know if she stored the

number but she said no,… He decided to visit the

forum,… He spent long hours searching for it,

until he found it,…. He opened it immediately but

was shocked to see the inscription, ‘Thread

Closed’, he was so angry with himself,…..His

cook came to his room to inform him that he has

a female visitor,…. He wasn’t expecting anyone,…

He went downstairs only to meet Tope sitting

down comfortably in his sitting room.

On sighting him, she rushed and gave him an

embarrassing hug,… Richard pushed her away.

“That was a harmless hug,.” she told him.

“I know, ”.

”You dumped me outside and never bothered to

call me,…. Anyway , you’re forgiven,…. I came to

check on you,…. ”.

”Have you visited your friend’s mother?,… “ he

asked her,

”Oh my God, i’ve been so busy with school work,

….. I’ll think of that later,… ”.

”You should be ashamed of yourself,…. You

claim to be Angela’s best friend but you dont

care about her well being and that of her family,,,

…. “ he threw at her.

”Is it my fault that she’s missing,…. That’s if she’s

not dead,…… If i dont care about her well being, i

wont be here with you,…. “ she said rolling her

eyes.

” Oooh i see,…….. Pls leave my house,…. “ he

said calmly.

”What?,,,,, i just came and you’re sending me

away,….. ”

”leave my house before i throw you out! “ he

shouted at her……

She picked her handbag and walked away.

Eric was returning from school when he saw a

black jeep packed infront of their compound,… He

thought it was Richard,…. But two old women

came down from the car,…… He stood still

watching them,….. A figure that resembles his

sister came down from the jeep too,…. He was

so shocked that he screamed out her name,…

“Sister Angela!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ”

Angela turned immediately and saw her brother

rushing to her…..

He hugged her so tightly,….. She has missed her

family so much,…. She asked after her mother

and siblings,….. They all walked into the

compound,……

:

:

Richard was still angry with Tope’s attitude,…..

He went upstairs to his room to do some office

work,… He was about booting his laptop when

his phone rang,… It was aunty Beatrice calling,…..

He picked immediately.

After some seconds of silence, he screamed,…

“What?!!!!!!!, tell me am dreaming,….. Ok….. Ok…..

I’m on my way right now……….. ”

He didnt bother changing his clothes, he wore his

slippers and rushed off,………
