”I pray she regains her memory quickly” aunty

Beatrice prayed smiling.

“Amen oooo,. “ shouted her mother.

**Richard drove Angela to a good private hospital

in Asaba owned by a family friend,…… He

watched her come down from the car and

walked into the hospital,… He wished he could

went in together,….. The doctor was surprised to
