Richard had broken down in tears, he raised up his head to question God as usual when he saw Pemisire hanging on to a wood that came out from the house. It was a long wood and another one, near it and both placed side by side. A wooden platform was on the two woods which the bricklayers can stay on, while plastering the house.
He could see some blocks on the the wooden platform as well, he rushed up as he screamed her name. “Pemisire! That is her!” He rushed up, and the policemen also. Some stood downstairs, near the soak-away in case anything happens again.
Richard neglected his wound and stretch forth his hand to help her. He could see her tired and bleeding already. “Let us help.” The policemen said.
“No, I’ll do it myself.” He said, staying near the extreme where he could also fall. “Bring your hand.” He said, breathing heavily because of his race to the place. He grabbed her right hand at last but had little strength to pull her up. “Try harder.” Helen kept saying from behind.
The policemen joined for help, it was a very risky place for them all. Pemisire was pulled back to the upper floor as she laid on the floor and Richard laid on the floor likewise, placing his hand on the stitched wound and crying. He stretched his left hand forward to hold Pemisire and Pemisire likewise. Both held their hands, and the other policemen who stood near the soak-away rushed up too.
“So, how far?” One of the policemen asked the others.
“She is fine, the blocks on the platform must have fallen instead the soak-away, she wasn’t the one.” One of them replied.
“Wao! If not for the wood that was there, but it is rare for her to have clung on to the wood that came out from the house. Thank God.”
“That man is a bastard!” They all kept talking until they carried the two, heading to the hospital.

It had been a thing of concern to Helen on how Richard got to know they were there. She was dying to ask but the situation on ground had kept her mute, though unstable. She could pay anything to know how he got to know, it was still like a dream as she kept remembering that scene where the policemen came in.
She was also on her hospital bed, receiving treatment from the shock and beatings from the guy. She kept praying for everything to work out well so she could see Richard and ask him how he got to know.
It was more than a dream.

“Richard!” Jay called him, looking so serious.
“Guy!” Richard smiled.
“How are you now?” Uche and Jay approached him.
“It was deadly! Those guys were serious.” He sighed.
Jay smiled. “I heard the lady is Pemisire. How is she?” He asked.
Richard laughed. “She’s Pemisire and she is fine.” He replied.
“Nawa oh, some people are really insane in this world oh!” Uche blurted.
Richard snifled. “Guys, it was serious!” He grinned as he remembered the scene again.
“So, the wound was affected, right?” Jay asked.
“Yes, but it is better than lossing her to an open soak-away.” He chuckled. “I feel like returning back to that hospital where the operation was done, Doctor Martins will understand better.”
“Maybe we should return back to the hospital, we told the boss about all that happened and he said you should return when you are fit.” Jay told him.
“Na to on my own automatic answer wey dey my phone oh, that thing saved these ladies!” Uche clapped his hands together.
“It’s the work of God! He is awesome!” Richard laughed.

RICHARD
The dream started by seeing her, I saw her skin on fire. She was screaming and weeping all along. I saw myself seated in the drainage system, crying also with the look of a mad man. I saw tattered clothes on myself, dirty hair with the full resemblance of a person who has gone totally crazy.
I saw my friends all running away from me, everyone that I know was deserting me. Doctors left my sister alone in the agony because her sickness was uncontrollable, world was crashing around me. I saw myself in that problem for ten years before my sister later died, then I woke up and saw Pemisire, Helen, Uche and Jay by my side.

“That is exactly what might have happened to you if she didn’t die.” Pemisire told Richard.
“What do you mean? I don’t understand.” He faced her properly, he wanted to know more from her.
“I am serious, Richard. You questioned God, wanting to know why your sister died that soon, it means if God had protracted her number of days, everything would have turn around to become that.” She explained.
“Wao! Pemisire, God is marvellous! I never thought to that extent. I really asked him why he did all he has done, now I believe when someone dies, you should still be thanking God.” He sighed.
“Yes! You can’t tell the disastrous thing that might have happened to that person in the next minute. In all things, even difficult situations, give thanks.” Pemisire smiled.
“You are great! How’s your leg?” He asked her.
“Better, it wasn’t an easy thing to hage hit it on the block. Lawrence is in God’s hands.” She grinned.
Richard smiled. “Don’t throw that your mobile phone away, it’s the best ever!”
Both laughed.
