The Unknown season 5 episode 5


Doris checked the screen of her mobile phone and couldn’t take her eyes off it. “Nicholas.” She announced as she picked up the call and looked at Stella.
“Where is he?” Stella screamed from where she was.
“Nick, what’s happening? Where have you gone to again?” Doris asked.
“I’m sorry I had to leave, I got a call that your station have been attacked and the Prince would be taken away forcefully. I thought you were still here and maybe Craig too, so I can save you and possibly stop the Prince.”
“Our station? Wait, there are many things I don’t even understand! Where are you right now?”
“I’ll explain myself when I’m back. I have to end this call now, something is happening.”
The call ended. Doris was totally fed up. She raised her head and looked at Stella and Henry. “He went out already. I don’t even understand all he said before he ended the call and said he would explain himself much better when he’s back.”
Stella became so infuriated. “What’s wrong with Nick! This is really annoying! Honestly, does he want to kill himself? He has a gunshot wound and he’s out of the house again? He collapsed a moment ago, he woke up and left! Craig too is out there in search of him, is he sick!” She blasted.
“Where exactly did he tell you he is?” Henry asked.
“He said our station, but I’m not that sure. By the way, he said something was happening, so he ended the call… em.. what could be happening?”
Stella hissed aloud and walked inside.

Nicholas was standing near the station, hiding. He had received a sudden call immediately he opened his eyes on the bed. He picked it up and heard the station had been invaded by some strange men who were well armed. He knew they had come for the Prince and quickly rushed up.
Then, Stella and Doris were busy inside the room treating Stella’s wound. As he looked around and didn’t see anyone, he was fulfilled and removed the fixed drip, getting himself outside the bed as he left as quick as possible. He never knew Doris was already back, it was when he collapsed the other time that Doris knocked. He had thought Doris and Craig might be in a serious problem which he could help them out.
It was when he got to the scene he called Doris and noticed she wasn’t there. Then, he could see that an important personality came down from the car to save the Prince and he had to record.
He had been recording all that was happening there. He couldn’t move closer because of his wound and he was unarmed. After he had recorded well, the Prince and Osmond were taken away by those that came to invade the station, so he also went away.
He was shocked Doris never got a call that something was happening but Craig already returned back to the station but he couldn’t do anything because the guys were thoroughly armed and all happened impromptu.

Weeks rolled into months and on and on till it was time for Margaret to deliver her child. It had been rough and interesting throughout the nine months she had been staying with Larry and Louisa. She was only faced with the problem of thinking, always worried what she could have done to deserve the banishment. Larry and Louisa had always been strong poles to her life since, but she never took it off her mind any time.
She was at home with Louisa when she began to labour. Louisa quickly put a call through to her husband to return from work so they could use the car to take her to the clinic. She had been sitting on the three-seater sofa in the living room, groaning in pain when Larry came in.
“I’m sorry I took a while. Let’s go.” He said and helped her to her feet, driving off to the hospital. Thank God things were already getting easier in the country and the Kingdom, there are many hospitals available for them to visit, so, he took her to the nearest one.

Katherine had been facing serious troubles in the palace. Harry had been a bone in her throat since he got to know she was carrying his baby. He had drained her already, just asking her for money everytime. She knew him, he was a person who didn’t mind the outcome, though he might also suffer but she would end up suffering more.
She was already counting her eight month of pregnancy when Harry came around again, demanding for more money from her. Sometimes, she might be really indignant, but she had no choice but just to protect her name and that of the unborn child.
Harry had made a lot out of his deal with her which he had squandered on ladies and alcohol. He never minded her whenever she told him she was broke, she was married to a King who could meet all her needs everytime. He never cared.

Nicholas rushed back to Doris’ place amidst pains, sweating profusely. As he entered, he locked up the gate and hurried to the main door. He knocked severally before Doris came around to open the door for him.
He held on to his gunshot wound, looking so pale. “I’m deeply sorry.” He said before anyone could scold him.
“Nick! This is very annoying!” Stella sprung to her feet. “Honestly, it is so nerve-wrecking! What’s the meaning of this nonsense? Do you know how much I passed through just to make sure Craig didn’t see you, do you know all I have been doing is a huge risk because my license is as take! Moreover, why do you keep endangering your own life? Why!” She yelled.
Nicholas felt cold. He never knew Stella would be so mad at him. “I’m just sorry, Stella. I really am.”
“If you get infected, that’s death. It’s a wound that is delicate. You have lost so much blood and you ought to be in bed, resting and taking medications but you just keep on going around, what’s your problem?”
“I’m just sorry.” Nicholas kept saying.
Stella calmed down. She had poured out her mind already and was already at ease. “Come inside and let me see the wound.” She walked on as Nicholas followed her quickly, winking at Henry who had been staring at him.
Henry and Doris also followed them as they went inside.
