Episode 23
Cindy is still on the sick be-d in the hospital, even after the surgery have been done she haven’t open her eyes talk less of talking or shaking,
Charles was seen sitting down beside her and staring at her face while Angelina was sitting perpendicular to him, staring at both Cindy and Charles, pity and regret was written all over her face,
“you know what Charles?” Angelina broke the silence “I think you nee-d to take your breakfast now”
“it’s alright, I’m alre-ady used to it” Charles reply still staring at Cindy’s face
Charles have been skipping his meal (not eating thrice in a day since Cindy have been hospitalized) he’d even st©p going home but slee-ping in the hospital with Cindy, he only go home to bath and change his clothes and sometimes eat at home cause Angelina used to bring him food from her home to the hospital,
Angelina can’t sleep in the hospital because she have to go home to meet her parents
“I think it’s time you should st©p this your habit of skipping meals nowadays” Angelina advised moving closer to Charles “it can cause another thing”
Charles grinned and replied “it’s sort of praying, hum I mean fasting”
“oh! You are not atheist?” she asked and Charles nodded “hmm, that’s good” she sighed heavily and shook her head
Charles noticed her and suspected that something is wrong so he quic-kly asked her what’s wrong
“hmm, nothing but…..” she paused and continued “I think you should first eat your food”
“why does it have to do with eating food?” Charles asked confused
“I promise to say it after that”
Charles shrugged and opened the food, it’s obvious he’d be hungry but he can’t just eat at that state but since Angelina is forcing it on him now he have no choice than to eat the food.
He closed the lunchpack after eating and faced Angelina “so what did you want to tell me?”
“it’s about Cindy” Angelina said looking despondent
“what about her?” Charles asked impatiently
“you know my mom is a nurse and when I told her about my friend who have been sh0t for a week now and haven’t wake up, she told me it’s strange and unusual, she said that my friend’s supposed to have wake up before now and that it’s getting late and suspicious”
Charles was surprised at this words and was shut of words, he blindly shifted his gaze from Angelina to Cindy “so, what you are saying is…….Cindy…… ”
“No Charles, that haven’t be proved yet, I think we nee-d to see the doctor right away to confirm what was wrong”
As they stood up to leave, the doctor entered the ward and they were half relief and half curious of why he’d come himself
“Good afternoon Doc” both of them chorused
“yeah afternoon, how are you guys” the doctor continued when none of them didn’t respond, Charles just shook his head while Angelina stared at the doctor “okay, I have something to tell you guys but before that, I will ask a question and I want your sincere answer”
“OK doctor, plea-se what’s the question”
“What kind of drug did she take before she was sh0t?” the Doc asked
“Drug!” Charles exclaimed “what kind of drug?”
“I don’t know cause it’s strange but we’re working on it right now”
“plea-se doctor, what happened to the drug? What does it have to do with Cindy” Angelina asked confused and impatiently
“the drug seems to be a slee-ping drug but it has a great and dangerous effect which can kill, as I’m looking at the elements of the drug I don’t think it’s a drug authorised, I think it’s been used secretly and it’s the one tying Cindy down, so I thereby guess she was drugged if I guess right” the doc asked staring at both them “is anything the matter? Do you know the drug?”
Hearing the word ‘being drugged’ Angelina head tilted, her eyes wi-de-ned “being drugged?” she clamored “John, John, John…….” she shouted “you must pay for this” she snorted and stormed out
“is anything the matter? Do you know the drug?”the doctor asked again
“No Doc, but what about Cindy? plea-se she nee-ds to live”
“I’ve told you alre-ady Mr Charles, the drug have been affecting her so much and right now she’s in the middle of life and death” he paused and shook his head “only miracle could wake her up” with this he left
Charles stumbled and slothfully sat down back beside Cindy, he held her hand as tears rolled down his cheeks “Cindy, Cindy, you can’t do this to me, plea-se be strong as you are and wake up Cindy, Cindy plea-se wake up, Cindy………………… “he cried out…………
