“My Wife And I …” season 2 episode 6


Alex slammed the door as he walked out angrily to wash his blood-stained hands. He had beaten Nora to the extent that she bled through her nose and mouth. Nora was on the floor, in pain as she bled. She was crying profusely, not because of the way she was beaten, but because she couldn’t boast that Daniel was still alive. Who would save her from the hands of evil Alex? She had been wondering as she rolled in her blood and tears. Is Daniel still alive? She had wondered as she cried more.
She remembered he was shot by the head and he collapsed immediately. A person shot by the head can’t live again! That has to do with the brain, from the brain to the heart! Is Daniel really gone? She continued wailing in pain and tears. She never knew how she was taken into the room, she never knew her phone had fallen under the mattress when she was thrown to the bed as she was taken into the room in an unconscious state. She had been wondering on how she could just leave Alex’s hands and go to see her husband. Her heart was shattered.

Daniel’s mother was seated in the living room. As she heard the honk of her daughter, she rushed to the curtains and pushed them to a side to know if she was really the one. As soon as she saw her, she went to her seat and burst into tears. She hadn’t been crying, maybe seeing her made her to start crying again. Soon, the lady walked inside the house slowly and met her crying.
“Mum, what’s wrong?” Her handbag slipped off her hand as she rushed to meet her mother.
“Daniel’s really gone.” She replied amidst tears. She had been up and doing concerning Daniel since morning, so, she couldn’t even call any of her children to know.”
“Daniel’s what? Where did he go to?” She asked, not wanting to think of another word synonymous to ‘go’.
“My son was shot! Daniel… he was..” she continued weeping.
“No..” She screamed aloud. “No mum! No! I still saw him on Sunday with his wife, mum! I still saw Nora and we spoke together! No! Mum, no!” Daniel’s mother wiped her tears as she held on to her daughter and quickly hugged her.
“Stop all these!” She said. “No!” She wriggled out the hug as she rushed out of the house without even carrying her handbag. It was still hard to belief. As the woman was crying, she picked up her phone and called the Doctor. The whole family had been in tears since morning.

The next morning.
“Where’s Nora?” Tonia exclaimed as they were all set to visit the hospital.
“We’ve been trying to get her since yesterday, Tonia.” Daniel’s mother replied.
“I met her handbag inside the car, so I have been wondering if Daniel was shot and Nora was taken away.” She added.
“Nora too? But who’s this person who did all these?” She wanted to start crying again.
“No one should cry anymore!” Daniel’s Father said from behind. His little
brother, Michael was leaning against the wall, crying too as they got set to check out the hospital.
“They just killed him that way?” Michael wiped his tears.
“Dear, shouldn’t we get the police force involved in this? Shouldn’t we get them involved in those who murdered Daniel and where Nora was taken to?” His father asked. Dan’s mother hurtled a gaze at him and shook her head.
“Not now!” She exclaimed.
“How do we get to the root of the matter then?” He asked.
“Just leave everything to me.” She replied.
“Let’s go.” She added as she led the way.
