​Emerald almost lifeless body was discovered by Sophia who screamed and immediately alerted her mother. Doctor Manuel gave her first aid and rushed her to the hospital, she then called Jofin who was angry and worried at the same time. It was a big relief when Emerald woke up few days later. “Emmy, look at me. Thank God you are awake.”
She bursted into tears. “Aunty why? You should have let me go, the humilation is too much to bear, the rape was never my fault. I dress decently and never for once encouraged them but they raped and abused my body anyway.”
“Shhhhh, it’s fine, what you should know is that as long as we your family loves you, nothing else matters. Remember you are the only one Jofin has left, don’t ruin him by leaving him.”
Doctor Manuel stood up and smiled. “He is very worried, I will let him in now.” Jofin came in and hissed at his sister. 
“Jofin, I-I……….” He snapped at her. 
“Don’t even start making excuses for what you have done. I am so disappointed in you. I didn’t know I meant nothing to you, if not you would consider I have no one but you before contemplating suicide.” Emerald sighed.
 “I am sorry bro, am really sorry, I was devastated, I just wanted to die when I learned that Alexis told everyone, forgive me please.” He sighed deeply and moved to her bed.
“You are my mother, my sister, my precious, I know it’s hard but life goes on, you have people that loves you, that’s all that matters. One day your prince will come and he won’t care about what happened to you but only who you are.” Emerald embraced her brother fiercely. 
“Thank you Jofin, you are all I have and I love you so much, but I just want the humilation to stop.”
He smiled. “I know big sis, just rest, get well and when you get back to school, no one will bother you again, I promise.” He laid her head gently on his lap. Half-asleep Emerald asked. 
“Jofin, what will you do?” He smiled. 
“Oh! Don’t worry. Myself and Alexis have an unfinished business.”
*************************
It was a bright Thursday morning, the department of International Law was full of students as usual, students were rushing to their various lecture halls and lecture theatres. By mid day, most law students were hanging out at the faculty’s gossip centre. Alexis was no exception, he was with five(5) ladies telling them stories and throwing around his charm. 
“Wow! See the ladies man, you sure are enjoying yourself after putting my sister in the hospital. Alexis stood up and started laughing.
 “Well, well, well, if it is not Emerald’s brother, the raped b—h.”
Shaking with fury. Jofin punched him hard in the face, by now most people had gathered to see the drama. Jofin smiled. 
“Come on sissy, you don’t wanna lose face in front of these beauties do you? You this coward, you are no man at all.” Jofin punched, kicked and beat up Alexis to the point of bleeding.. 
“Nobody humilates my sister and go scot-free.” Alexis went on his knees and pleaded. “I am sorry, I will never insult your sister again, I won’t even cross her path, I promise.” Jofin punched him again.

“Now you can beg when your big boy has been ruined huh? Listen up everyone, my eyes and my people are on you, anyone who insult, abuse or even so much as sneer at Emerald Janda, I will make sure that will be the last act of your life.
You are all idiots, am sure when most of you become lawyers you will be corrupt and insincere why? Because if you can mock and humilate someone who has gone through an emotional trauma, then there is little hope for the abused out there all because of your personalities.” And it is still this same Emerald you all mock that is the best in your faculty. Shame on you all.”
He kicked Alexis few more times and left. After this, Emerald never had issues till she graduated. Alexis, stayed clear of her and made sure he didn’t upset Emerald because of Jofin.
After five years at Imperial University, Emerald graduated with a first class honours in law, she then proceeded to Law School. 
“Hurray, a toast to the first graduate in this house, Emerald.” Emerald, Jofin, Sophia and Doctor Manuel were all celebrating the successful graduation of Emerald.
Jofin was then in the clinical part of his medicine and surgery degree, he still had two and a half years to finish university.
 “Am proud of you Emmy, thank you for not disappointing me.” Doctor Manuel embraced her. Emerald smiled.
 “I’m also grateful aunty, you’ve been there for me at my best and lowest times, encouraging and cheering me on. I love you.”
Sophia grunted and smiled. “Please don’t turn emotional, let’s celebrate instead.” And they celebrated all night.
