I winced silently as I felt something pinch my wrist, I must have had a long night, I thought.
“Yes Doctor, this is the fifteenth bag of drips.”
I heard a female voice say.
“hmn, her pulse? Still normal?”a familiar male voice asked her.
“no, its a bit faster Doctor.”the female voice replied.
“Lemme check her heart beat.”
where the hell was I? Who did they give drip? Whose pulse was a bit faster?
I felt something cold on my chest, I resisted all temptations to open my eyes, I was to lazy to do that.
“Yikes! Her heart beat is too fast!”the male voice exclaimed.
Just then my eyes flew open, I took a quick glance round me, I was on a hospital bed, doing what? How did I get here?
A smallish woman was standing at my feet in a white uniform, maybe she’s a nurse.
“Doctor?”she gasped pointing at me.
She looked visibly scared.
But why? Am i a ghost.
“oh my God!”a male voice exclaimed.

I turned to the direction, Dr Raymond was standing there.
“What happened to ‘your God'”I snapped. I was getting irritated by the way they were staring at me like they’ve seen a ghost.
They didn’t reply, I made to sit up.
“Ouch!”drip needle got pulled away.
“What happened to…”
“We need to conduct some checks on her quickly”Dr Raymond said trying to hold me.
“Take your hands off me jor!”I pushed his hands away.
“What am I doing here?”I shrieked at them.
“Ask Mr David to come in.”Raymond told the nurse.
“Oh Jeez!”David exclaimed as he marched towards me.
“She’s awake? Oh my God!”he told the doctor before hugging me.
“We thank God”he laughed looking me all over, like what I don’t know.
“What happened?”I frowned at him.
“Baby we need not talk about that now…”
“I insist.”I snapped
“You’ve been unconcious for 7 day now…”Dr Raymond began to explain.
“uhm?”I was getting more confused.
“You had a shock, convulsed, became unconscious and…”he shrugged.
“I had a shock, convulsed, became unconscious and…”I mimicked him.
David shook his head
“Mummy!”Eniola squealed rushing towards me.
“Lil’ cutie..”I hugged and kissed her.
“Mummy, I thought you won’t come back again…I’ve been crying since o”she snuggled at me.
“Mummy, don’t fall again you hear? Don’t sleep that kind of sleep again, you hear?”she rattled on.
“Kpele- sorry”I heard Maria’s voice.
How did she get here?
Just then, different episodes began to dipslayed
I remembered been told my father was dead, and…maybe that was how I got here.
“Maami…”I whispered as I hugged her, she looked worn-out and lean. She shook as she wept on my shoulders.
“I don’t think she’s strong enough to bear such emotions.”Dr Raymond cautioned Maria.
“I’m sorry.”She pulled herself away from my grip.
My head began to ache badly. So it’s true? Very true that my father was gone! I now a complete orphan.
My only asset was gone. I ran my fingers through my cornrows.
“Don’t cry.”David dabbed some tears of my face.
I didn’t stand a chance to apologise to my father for all the wrongs I did.
“young lady, due to your health condition, you are not supposed to be …”Dr Raymond began to say.

“Hold your peace!”I raised a hand interrupting him.
“Do you know what it means to lose someone dear to you?”I asked him slowly.
“I’m the reason why he died. He couldn’t bear my absence. My Father loved me but I failed him, now here am I…all alone…”
“Stop casting blames on yourself please.”Maami patted my back.
“I wish.. I wish…”I sobbed as I hugged her.
“You are not alone, I’m here, as your mother.”Maria told me slowly.
So she forgave me, after all I did to her..,.
“I’m here too..”David whispered
“mummy, me too!”Eniola sniffed, she’d been crying too.
I shook my head slowly, I wished my father would just appear and tell me he’s there for me too…only his presence counts more than anything…
