Epic 29“You don't have to go alone, remember your mum just killed his wife, let me follow you”, I said while trying to stop Alex from meeting Micheal all by himself but he played deaf ears.“If I die, I die, do you think he will stop haunting me, he won't. Let's just end all this problem, I wasn't expecting to live either since I got to know that mum killed every one of his family members”, he said as he buttoned his shirt.“At least go armed for self-defense”, I said while giving him a gun which he threw away immediately.“Take this stinking stuff out of my sight, it won't help, Angel! I can't even use it and you know that, let's not waste any more time”. He said as he was set to go.“I am going to get the police involved in this”, I said while trying to call the police but he stopped me immediately.“If any other life is lost apart from mine, then know that the blood of the innocent will never stop haunting you, you are getting me pissed off, I am not afraid to die, you shouldn't b
Epic 28"News came from the prisons that my mum is missing", Alex said as he came to the kitchen where I was.“Your mum!!! How is it possible? Isn't the prison guarded?”, I said annoyed.“Exactly the same question, I am asking. When you are done, let me know. We need to go visit the prisons for information”. He said and I nodded my head while continuing with what I was doing.This woman and her evil, who knows what she is up to? I knew she would escape as she said. But how did she surpass the guards at the prison or probably break out of her cell? This is a very serious and sensitive situation. “Aren't you done? I need to get going”, Alex said while coming inside the kitchen again.“Almost, please don't go without me”, I said as I began to quicken my cooking.When I was done cooking, I didn't dish it out because Alex was in a haste to leave. So we both left together.On getting to the station, everywhere was in a mess. From the story we heard, it was said the person who did that is a
Epic 27I dialed Leo's number, it rang but he didn't pick up. I called the second time, I was told that it was switched off, all of a sudden it said the number I called doesn't exist. “Wow! Affliction is about to rise for the second time”, I said out loud as I held my head.“What affliction?”, Alex asked laughing.“Leo's affliction”, I said laughing.“How?”, He said, joining me to laugh.“His line isn't going through again, this was the exact way I lost contact with him the last time, first, it rang, then switched off, and finally the line wasn't existing anymore”. I said smiling at Alex who just looked at me surprised.“Wow! Your circle of friends is quite amazing”, He said while blushing.“Yeah! Never knew Leo loved me before I went for Benjamin, he wasn't there at my wedding, well, it may look so difficult to accept but I have to forget about Lisa”, I said smiling buh Alex just smiled at me and told me that it is fine.“You don't think it will be that easy to forget the child you
Epic 26"It is about your father, I was the one that got him blind", she said as she bent her head. Even Alex was disappointed."What did you just say?", mum said with tears in her eyes."I am sorry", she said."You don't have to be sorry, like how did it all happen?", Dinma said."Mum!!!", Alex exclaimed while shaking his head."You must have acted out of your present situation then, but how did it happen?", I said while holding her.“Then, when I heard about the accident, I bribed the doctor to inject something in his eyes which can make him get blind, then claiming it was as a cause of the accident, which he agreed to”, she said while crawling to where my mum was but she snapped her hands off her clothes."You are indeed wicked, you mean…", Mum just paused as she couldn't bear the pain. She just ran inside her room and started crying. We all cried because it was too bitter to be a true story, even with all that, she still wasn't satisfied. This was all for one baby she lost, thousa
Epic 25"Hello", I said, sounding scared as I picked up the call."Yeah! It was successful, I am on my way back, hope you are back, please prepare something I am famished", he said and I started blushing."Wow! Good news, don't worry I am going to call Dinma to prepare something, I am not yet back", I said while still wearing my smiling face."Okay", he said and ended the call. I went home happy and sad at the same time, I was happy because Leo was able to rescue his daughter but on the same note, I was hoping that could be Lisa. I wish I could find her just as Leo has found his.I got home at the same time as Alex."Mum called, she woke up rather too fast", Alex said as he came down from his car."Wow! And that is a warning sign, what do you think? She will probably haunt the baby down", I said smiling."Yeah! Leo already took her to the airport, she will be leaving the country early tomorrow", Alex said."That's a brilliant idea", I said as we both started heading inside."How about
Epic 24I went to Alex's room, he just kept tapping his feet uncontrollably on the floor. I have never seen him in such discomfort before. What could be wrong with him?“You called, what is the latest update?”, I said while sitting on the sofa close to him.“Yeah! Just a few minutes later, mum called, she told me she wanted to make peace, she was ready to come clean, she asked me to beg you on her behalf which I agreed to do after we ended the call with some prayers...” he said while pausing.“Are you serious? This is good news, so how are we going to do it, probably invite her over so that everything can be settled in a good way”, I said smiling, but he still wore his angry look.“What happened? Why are you not happy, this is what we have all wanted, you should be happy”, I told him while giving him a little punch.“I wish the story ended here so that we can both rejoice together”, he said while still stamping his feet.“How? You are confusing me, was she joking when she said that? I
Epic 23I got home, feeling so uneasy, I was scared of getting Leo involved in my detrimental life. I couldn't pick up any calls as I was getting so many calls from home. I got home a bit late after I dropped by a nearby cafe to have a little rest.The street was so dry, shops were already closed as much as the day was so bright. I was seeing bullets as I drew close to home, I didn't quite understand what had just gone on the past few hours I just left home. Blood spills were all over, in front of the gate. My heartbeat increased more as I kept seeing blood spill till I reached the main entrance to the room.I knocked on the door, but no one answered. I knocked again but the same thing repeated till I spoke, that was when Alex came and Opened the door.“Oh! Thank God you are safe, come in quickly”, Alex said as he dragged me inside.“What happened here?”, I asked on seeing my Mum and Dinma, who were also in fear.“He came again!”. Alex panicked.“Who came again?”, I asked, surprised.
Epic 22“Good morning mum!”, I said while going close to hug her.“Good morning”, Dinma said in a low tone. Of course, I understand her fears, she will always remain the little Dinma I have always known no matter how smart she thinks she can be, just immediately, Alex came and joined us.“Good morning sir”, Dinma greeted Alex as he entered the kitchen.We all exchanged greetings as soon as we were done, We all went to the sitting room. Mama was more relaxed now, so I pleaded with her to tell us about the relationship and how she got into this big mess with her twin sister. She agreed after a long hissing.“I don't know the exact place to start, but each time I remember the past, I feel like the pain was too much for a payback”. Mama said, but Alex and I encouraged her to open up. “Well, my twin sister and I were very close, and of course very Identical, I told her about your father whom I later married, but unknown to me, My sister was already pregnant for him, Your father, said he d
