I approached David when Jeremy was already asleep, safe on a couch..David was still wide awake, he couldn’t sleep, neither could I..I kept stealing glances to see if he would eventually fall asleep but he didn’t..so I muster the courage and walked up to him..
“Sit with me, please”
I stood starring at him for a while, should I really sit with him?..but I wanted to sit with him, so I did..
“David its gonna be okay”
He drew me close, my breathe went unstable..he gently laid on my thigh..I waited for another five minutes before I caressed his hair and made him sleep..
I rested my head backwards and tried hard to sleep to but I couldn’t get that thought of my mind..madam Clara wants me out?..God it shouldn’t be true
Although I didn’t mean to let Jeremy find us like that but he did..
“So you came to David behind my back?”
He raged further
“Jeremy when will you ever behave mature?”
David fired back
“Why can’t you accept the fact that she can never be yours”
Jeremy grabbed David by his neck immediately and made him stand up.
..he said thru is clenched teeth”
No this wasn’t happening.. Not now for Christ sake
“David?! Jeremy?! Stop this?!”
I tried to fight my way in and push Jeremy aside..but Jeremy was quick to try and slap David..just that he slapped me instead..
“Oh my God, bukky am sorry”
He rushed to me
“Bukky are you OK?”
David tried to reach me too
Jeremy barked at him
“Would you both stop this! What is wrong with both of you?! With mummy’s present situation you both can still fight? Why are you behaving like kids?!”
I touched my lips and discovered I was bleeding where Jeremy had slapped me
“Bukky am sorry”
He tried to touch me
“Don’t touch me”
I was getting angry now
David tried to reach me as well
“You too..neither of you!!”
What kind of situation is this oluwa..
Fortunately the doctor came out..we all rushed to him
“I thought I warned that on no occasion must she be subjected to any form of emotional trauma?”
The doctor asked..no one could answer him..that was not what we wanted to hear..
“She will be fine, just let her rest”
I was the first to rush in to see her. I had gotten to the door before I remembered what vodka had said..well there is only one way to confirm..I gently counted my steps and sat with her. She was still asleep but i couldnt conserve my curiosity so I touched her a little..
“Bukky, what are you still doing here, please leave”
