The doctor walked into the room to check on

mother and baby,…. After his examination, he

smiled and told Angela that her baby is doing well,

….. Richie and his dad entered the room as the

doctor turned to leave,… He pecked his wife and

carried his baby,…. His dad hugged Angela as

Richie handed the baby to him,….. He was all

smiles,………, after exchange of pleasantries with

the doctor, he left to attend to other patients,…

Mr Johnson held onto the baby,….. He could see

the striking resemblance between his wife and

grand child…

“Mother was right,….. Your mother came back to

us,…….” his dad said smiling at the baby,…. He

wiped the tears in his eyes,…. His phone rang

and he excused himself to answer the call……

Richie narrated all that happened to his wife,…..

She was shocked,….

“So you mean your mother is in this hospital

right now? “ she asked.

”Yes, she was knocked down by Nancy’s driver,

…. I begged Nancy not to tell you about it yet,…..

I still haven’t told grandma about it,….. ”

”I cant believe this,…. What did i do to her,…..

She kidnapped me when i was pregnant, now she

wants my baby,…….. Thank God nothing happened

to her,….. Pls can you check on her to know how

she’s doing,…..? ”

”huh?,….. Me check on who? You mean you dont

want her dead after all she did to you?, ”

”Noooo, i only want her to repent,….. ”

”Madam preacher,….. Dont let dad hear you say

that, the police are already waiting for her to

recover before arresting her…. Pls forget my step

mother for now,…… “ he said admiring his wife’s

after birth look ,……..” You’re radiating after your

delivery,… “ he teased her pecking her on the

chic……

”eeermm, Richie, pls she just put to bed,…allow

her to recover first oooooo,….. “ his mother in

law said jokingly.

He thought about what his wife said about

checking on his step mum,… He decided to check

on her,…….

His dad entered the room when he was done

with his calls,….

“Daddy,…. i would like to check on our wife to

know how she’s faring before we leave, “ Richie

told his dad with a trembling voice.

His dad gave him a ” Are you alright look,. ”.

“God forbid,…. I will never see that evil woman,…

My son,… You don’t know the damage this

woman has caused,….. Tomorrow i’ll be having a

press conference to tell the world what an evil

woman she is,….. I dont want her evil doings to

tarnish my image in the society,……. I need to tell

the whole world that she’s no longer my wife,…..

If you want to see her, you can go alone,…… “ he

said furiously.

Richie left the room and went to his step

mother’s room to see her,…. He met the doctor

on his way,…..

”Thank God i met you here,…. I wanted to come

and see you,…. “ the doctor told him.

” Good day doc, “ he greeted.

The doctor took him to his office where he told

him about Mrs Johnson ‘s condition,…..

”How the mighty has fallen,….. This is

unbelievable “ he muttered to himself, he thanked

the doctor and left to check on her….

He peeped into her room to see her sleeping,

…..her legs were badly hurt,…… She was lying

helplessly,……. He went back to his wife’s room

…..

”Daddy you cant believe what the doctor told me

now?,…. ”

”What is it? ”

”your wife might not be able to walk again,…. But

he suggested that another xray needed to be

done on her before concluding,….. ”

“this is called Nemesis!!!!, and pls dont ever refer

to her as my wife “ his dad said happily.

”The doctor also revealed that her heart is in a

delicate condition ….. He’s afraid of her life,….

She will die anytime she has another heart attack

because her heart is no more functioning well,…..

“We should be celebrating this,..i wish she could

just die off,……. .. Your mother will be happy

wherever she is” his dad said.

Angela was feeling bad for Mrs Johnson, she

watched father and son discuss her poor

condition with no pity at all,…

It was already late before they went home,…

They promised to come earlier the next day with

grandma,…..

twins would visit the next day, she tried asking

her dad about it but he refused talking about his

wife………

Everyone advised the Johnson’s family to take

their step mother back to her people before she

dies,…….this was a difficult step to take,…….

Richard have never heard or seen any of her

relatives since he was born,… She never wanted

to talk about her family,….. She told him she was

an orphan and an only child,…. She made him

believe that she had no one except them,….. So

he respected her thoughts and never bothered

talking about her family,……..
