General Hospital Port Harcourt Saturday 2: 30 pm GMT( 4hrs ago.)
A day like this one, made me grow wild and sinister in thoughts. In the past , I would have resorted to something more painful and wicked to almost everyone that caused me pain. *
Doctor Johnson walked into the room and I watched as he took up the charts and pretending to jot down something . Kemi had already taken Funmi home and came back briefly before she left for work. I looked at Dr. Johnson with so much disappointment. Indeed I was.
” Why did you fool me? I asked as my eyes pryed into the chart he was holding.
” I did not … ” He said ” I only gave you a sedative because you wanted my help. So I did what I thought was best.”
” Which did not work. Are you playing games with me here? He was surprised and turned sideways facing me , this time he put the chart on the carbinet.
” I remember giving you a shot of anaesthesia” Dr. Johnson said ” which you requested; after which I emptied your aspirin pills into the sink then flushed it down the pipe.
” You failed ! ” I shouted and twitched my muscles.
” Failed? I did not. ” He continued” I sent an SOS (an emergency alert) text message to your friend …. Kemi and left your house unnoticed.” I wished dearly he had not done anything. I wished he had not thrown the pills down the sink, instead he could have just sholve it down his ugly a-s. I had just wasted time and energy begging for love. Gabriel must have thought am a fool or lunatic that tried to take her own life into her hands.
” When Will I get my complete payment? He said.
” You will get nothing from me. ” I relaxed my head on the bed then said ” You can leave now. I already have things under control”
” How? He asked , looking very confused.
” Its complicated.” I continued ” Just book my discharging papers so I can get the hell out of here” He pulled the door open and I sighed biterlly. ” Oh! Lest I forget, doctor. Your report was marvelous . They actually believed that I drugged myself. That I took an overdose . Incredible job!!!” ” I said as I shook my head .
I smiled hysterically and picked up my buzzing phone on top of the cabinet.. A text from an unknown sender read: *Its done….just like you wanted it.*
St Francis Hospital Port Harcourt 6: 30 pm GMT ( present )
The doctors were really busy. I heard the Chief Surgeon give out instructions to her surbodinates and every hand was on deck to save the lives of Gabriel and Tayo, who properly had lost so much blood already.
” Charge CPR…. Clear … Defibrillator fused… Clear… Charge CPR… Clear… Heart rate? , pulse unstable .. Charge …. Clear.” Mimi was shedding tears while Kate whimpered in shock. Kate had protested to join the medical team in the ER( emergency room) , but was refused entrance.
Some moments later , a young man came walking down the hall way with two other ladies and a little boy. From their discussion , I picked it up that they were family to Kate. No one talked to me- Nobody cared.
The guy went up ahead and peeped through the gallery of the ER, but was scolded by a nurse who told him to leave the window. Another lady came, disturbed and crying her lungs out. Kate identified with her as Tayo’s wife. Her husband was now in a trauma shock and slipping gradually into a coma. *
” What have I done? ” Kate asked Mimi ” I put my husband in harm’s way” I was eavesdropping ( and listening from a distance as they had no idea about it) ” Mimi” she continued ” Why did I follow your idea of having fun?
” Don’t blame me now” Mimi blurted out as she cleaned her face off with a handkerchief. ” You wanted to have a ” We- time remember? How is it my fault?
” I asked you to celebrate mother’s successful surgery with me. I never wanted Andy to tag along! ” Kate said
” And how come he was at the gym club for God’s sake?
” Are you kidding? ” Mimi asked ” He is a platinum member. He virtually owns the gym. Will you blame me for what I have no idea about or pray for Gabriel and Tayo’s lives? Mimi’ s eyes turned red and her cheeks were scaly with dried tears. She began another round of crying her heart out.
I had heard enough as it dawned upon me that I was at fault. If I had not forced them to have coffee with me, Tayo would have not got shot trying to save his friend. Gabriel was only surprised to see Kate in my car. If my common sense, was good enough I could have sensed danger and stopped the nonsense.
I sneaked out as they were too busy to even notice my presence – nor even when I’m gone. Outside the entrance of the main reception, I bumped into a lady.
” Sorry…” she began.
” watch where you are going ,lady” I was indeed furious . She was wearing high heels, very tall and was beautiful with her blonde hair.
” You watch it . ” She said” I apologised and yet you vent out your anger on me.mtchewwww” She passed me by and I noticed as she looked left and right ( in a very suspicious manner) before she went down into the hall way. Something in me sensed that she was up to evil . I could pick a smell of danger , somewhere.
