💦 MIRIAM MENDEZ OLIVER 💦
“Mommy where are you going? Don’t leave me here” Miriam cried as her mom handed her to Rev’d sister Mag.
“I’ll be back soon Baby. I promise” Sarah kissed her cheek and pulled her into a warm embrace.
“Mommy loves you” she whispered softly into her ears and left without looking back.
“Mommy!! Mommy!!” Miriam cried uncontrollably.
Sarah didn’t spare another glance on her. She knows she won’t be able to stand her teary face. Her heart is shattered right now. She hates herself for this. She cussed biting her lower lip as she entered her car and zoomed off.
‘i will be back’ very soon..
“Mommy come back! Don’t leave me here” she cried more. About to run after her mom’s car.
“That’s okay Little one. Mommy said she’ll be back soon” Rev’d sister Mag carried her and patted her softly on her back.
“I want my Mommy. Not you” she cried.
“SShhh.. a beautiful girl like you ought not to cry” Mag soothed her.
Miriam sobbed on Sister Mag’s shoulder. She wants her Mommy. Where has she gone to?
Mommy never leaves without her.
She sniffled, swallowing her throaty cries.
When sister Mag finally dropped her after her tears has dried off. Miriam embraced her Cinderella toy exhaling sharply. How much she loves it.
“Come along let me show you where you’ll spend the night ”
Miriam sniffled and nodded.
Following behind as they took slow steps, her eyes fell on a young girl. Older than she is. Staring coldly at her.
“Patley go to your room dear. You don’t want to catch a Cold” sister Mag said to her.
Miriam’s eyes were still interlocked with this girl sister Mag just called Patley.
Her gaze on Miriam wasn’t friendly at all.it was cold.
Miriam squirmed and gripped sister Mag’s hand.
One thing is sure to her. This patley doesn’t like her.
‘Mommy come and take me home’
She cried within herself.
I woke up with a start. Another Nightmare.
I blinked my eyes and switched on the lightstand. My eyes fell on the wall clock. It’s 3 in the morning.
Why do I always get to have Nightmares?😒
I call this a Nightmare cause that’s what it is to me.
The very day my life took another turn entirely. The day my life changed without a cause.
The day my Mom abandoned me.
The day she left me at the mercy of the Rev’d sisters.
She never came back😥. She promised, but she never did.
Now she’s asking for me? She wants to see me? Huh! Pathetic.
I shut my eyes trying to block the thoughts of her.
What kind of a mother is she? What kind of a Mother abandons her child at the Time she needs her most?
My Mom is nothing but wicked. See what she has turned my life into.
I didn’t want to be a Nun. I have dreams. I have Alot to do outside this convent.
I haven’t been exposed to the outside worlds and the sisters dearly cares about my welfare to grant me this wish.
They think I am naive and not fit for the wickedness of the outside world.
Besides I am a Nun. My place is in the convent. The house of the Lord.
Will sis Mag give me this consent to go see my mom?
Am sure she will. If not, she wouldn’t have told me about her request the first place.
If I am given this opportunity , am gonna use it well. At Lea, for the days I’ll be spending there. I’ll use it to know and explore the necessary things that I’ve so longed for.
I smiled inwardly. Nothing goes for nothing 😏.
I shifted my gaze to the opposite side of the room. The bed there is empty. Samantha’s bed is empty. She isn’t in the room by this wee hours. Again.
Where does she go everyday by this hour?
The door slightly opened cutting me off my thoughts. I clearly saw Samantha sneak into the room and shut the door as quiet as a pin drop. She doesn’t know I am awake already.
She doesn’t know I am watching her.
Maybe a good morning won’t be so rude to a fellow sister. I smirked.
“Good morning Samantha” I quietly spoke out.
She almost jumped out from her skin😅 when she heard my voice.
“Jesus!” She gasped, hands on her chest.
“What? Did I scare you?” I asked as if I didn’t know the answer already.
“Yes you did” She breathe out and looked away from me as she sat on her bed.
“Where have you been? All other normal sisters are sleeping in their rooms. Where did you go? Or have you taken a job as the current Night Guard?” I Bombarded her with questions.
“I…..I ..I went to pee” she stuttered. Trying to avoid my eyes.
“Every night? You wake up and go out same hour every night to pee? How long does someone takes to pee? Are you drilling a borehole or what?” I burst out leaving her speechless.
She couldn’t hide the shocked expression on her face. She thinks I don’t know about her sneaky walks?
” Yes I know you always go out every night. I have noticed lately Samantha”
” I….i d..ont know what you are talking about” she stuttered and quickly laid on her bed.
‘” just shut up and sleep Miriam! You know nothing” she added before turning her face the other way.

**12 years Ago**
After I dropped Miriam at the St. Mathews Cathedral, I drove out of it’s premises without looking back.
Did I do the right thing? I asked myself as I drove along the highway.
No need for questions. I’ll definitely come back for any Time soon. A day or two at least, I’ll be back for my Baby.
I just have to sort things out with Richard. So he’ll know he no longer has right over Miriam.
Driving back to my place now would be very difficult. Cause my house is three towns away from here and it’s pretty late.
I might fall asleep on the highway if I continue this journey.
I cautioned myself and quickly looked for a serene area to park. I’ll be spending the night in my car.
I soon found a spot beside the road, under a fig tree. I breathe out and slowly parked under it.
Just for this night! It isn’t safe out here but am gonna sleep here anyway.
I will have my rest and recover my strength. Then tomorrow morning I’ll drive back home and call my lawyer ASAP.
I switched off the dim light Inside the vehicle placing the key back into my pocket. I moved to the back seat and laid Flat on it.
Its really cold out here, I wound up my windows to trap some heat. I don’t want to catch a Cold. I need to be strong. If not for anything, for my daughter Miriam.
I prayed silently for my Baby and myself. I hope the sisters take good care of her for this Night.
I’ll be back tomorrow. I promise.
“Goodnight Miriam. Mommy is really sorry 😔” I whispered under my breath before shutting my eyes to Oblivion.
I woke up the next morning as early as 5@m. I dabbed my eyes tiredly and moved over to the driver’s seat.
I inserted my key and continued my journey from where I stopped.
If I am fast enough,I’ll be at my doorsteps before eight.
I know Richard must really be disappointed now. He didn’t get what he came for yesterday. Good for him. Cause I’ll never let him have his way.
I drove into my compound feeling so tired. It’s almost eight thirty and I am so exhausted. My apartment must be a mess now. I remember smashing a lampstand on Richard’s head last night. The glasses must be all over the floor.
I will do some cleaning before I call Bar. William. He mustn’t see my home in a mess.
I hate it when my visitors meets my apartment in a messy state.
I’ll be very fast with the clean up. I’ll make my meeting snappy with my lawyer. I’ll also go straight down to the police station and make a complaint of Assault.
Richard has bitten more than he can chew.
After settling all these today, I’ll go back for my daughter.
I am missing her already.
I quickly came down from my car. I locked it as usual and walked over to my apartment.
I opened the door and wasn’t surprised to see it wasn’t locked.
I gained full entry and shut the door from behind. My eyes met with the broken glasses on the floor and…….
And Richard? He is still here?
Lying on the floor. Exact spot I had left him last night.
Seems like his drink hasn’t weared off. He must have fallen asleep from the heavy knock on his head. I almost laughed out to that assumption.
He should know it’s morning already. He has to leave my house this minute.
I marched over to my sleeping husband.
“Richard?” I called out standing above him.
“Richard get up and leave my house” I ordered.slightly Pushing him with my feet.
“Richard…” I called his name severally but he didn’t flinch.
I then bent low and tapped on his shoulders
“Richard I know you can hear me. Get up and leave my house please, Miriam isn’t here” I spoke out with a normal tone. But still, there was no movement.
“Richard?.” I arched . Gently placed my ears on his chest to check his pulse.
I did that for three consecutive times unsure of what I was thinking. This Time, my heart was already racing fast in panic.
I switched and placed my fingers on his neck. There was no single pulse. And he felt so cold to my skin.
I shook him harder this Time. Panic swept through my nerves.
He isn’t breathing, he is cold. Is he?….
Oh no!! I gasped and flinched away from him. Collapsing on the floor.
Richard is dead? ” It came out from my lips like a question.
I ki….I killed him…
I ki….I killed Richard!
It finally dawned on me as my head began to hurt.
My whole body shook in terror.
I am a murderer. No …
No… I cried hard.
I quickly stood up from the floor. I worriedly ran my fingers through my hair.
I need to get out of here. I need to get out of this place. Right now.
I just killed my ex husband.
Minutes from now, I am gonna be a wanted person⚠️
I ran out of the house and quickly pulled myself into my car.
All my plans for today is cancelled. It is ruined.
No Richard to file a case on.
I just killed a man. Oh my goodness.
Miriam you will have to hang in there for some Time.🤧
Your Mother is A Wanted Person 😣😣 ‼️❗ ⚠️⚠️

💦MIRIAM’S POV 💦
It’s finally dawn. I sighed out in frustration as I got prepared for our morning prayers. Since I work around 3@m I haven’t been able to sleep. And it’s a good thing though cause I kinda surprised everyone today. I’m always late in everything I do. Don’t blame me.
By six at the dot, we went for our morning prayers. Which always lasted for about forty five minutes.
During the prayers, I noticed Samantha wasn’t present. She’s still in the room? Doing what?
Another thing I noticed too was patley’s absence. Strange huh? Those two bird of a feather, absent on a morning devotion.
Hmm . I turned to Stephanie who was beside me muttering her prayers with her eyes shut.
“Steph….” I whispered. ” Steph”
She faintly opened her eyes ” what?” She whispered yelled giving me the ‘we-are-praying’ kind of look. Duh🙄. I rolled my eyes. And drew my mouth closer to her ears.
“Where’s Pat?” I asked
She sighed out and shook her head.
“You don’t know?” I asked.
“She was in the room when I left” she bluntly replied.
“What was…..” I stopped whispering when I noticed she had continued again with her prayers.
Huh! Everyone knows it’s a sin to get distracted during devotions. Especially the period when you communicate with the creator. But that is out of my mind now.my mind isn’t here.
I scaled through everyone and noticed their eyes were firmly shut in prayer. Good thing. No one will notice if I leave now. I thought within as I quietly deserted the hall.
I quickened my steps as fast as I could. I don’t want to be missed by anyone.
Patley isn’t in the hall. And so is Samantha. Is Samantha okay? I asked as I walked briskly over to my room. Samantha is my worry. Not patley.
👽 PATLEY’S POV👽
“Samantha you have to get up. You don’t want to raise up suspicions do you?” I weakly stared at Samantha who sobbed into her pillow.
“I have wronged the Almighty! I did a terrible th…
“SShhh!” I hushed her.
I sighed out frustratedly.
“How are you feeling now?” I asked twirling my eyes.
Off course I know how she feels. Same feeling everyday.
“Terrible! Stupid! Dirty! Dis…
“Hey that’s enough now. You don’t have to say all that” I frowned hard.
“I am a Nun. I’m supposed to be a Nun” she cried out weakly.
“Of course Samantha. You still are. This is a little secret between us. No one else will get to know about this. Just play along and with time, you’ll adjust” I soothed her.
She sniffled and nodded slightly.
“Will I ever get to do it again?” She asked with pleading eyes.
“Yes! You have no choice” I replied nonchalantly
“But I don’t want to”
“Like I said. You have no choice” I snapped. Elisa has the final say.
I saw her shrink back in fright.
“Can you walk?” I asked.
“Nope. I am out of strength” she complained.
I smiled inwardly. Elisa’s a douchebag! She uses you until you feel numb.
“Don’t act fussy. Stay here and rest for a while. If sister Mag asks of you,I’ll tell her you are feeling sick and you need rest.
Remember, what Happened last night must not leak out from that mouth of yours.
No one gets to know, no one has to know. Not even your Lousy Roomie.” I warned sternly.
“Okay” she replied.
“Good…if you need anything. Tell me, I’ll let Elisa Know. She’s really fond of you” I smiled.
“Okay” she nodded.
“Like I have said. Tell no one” I repeated boldly mouthing the words out.
She slightly nodded before opening her mouth to say something.
“She saw me”
“Who saw you?” I asked.
“Miriam. She saw me sneak back into the room this morning” she retorted.
“Miriam? She was awake?”
“Yes. And it’s really not the first time she has noticed. She’s aware of all my sneaky walks” Samantha added.
“This is not good” I blinked back sweats that trickled on my lids.
Miriam can sometimes be an inquisitive Brat!
💦 MIRIAM’S POV 💦
I was about twisting the door’s knob when I heard faint noises coming out from the room. Like someone was crying.
“I have wronged the Almighty.” Samantha’s shaky voice peered through the door.
” SShhh…how are you feeling now?” I heard another voice.
I needed no voice transmitor to tell me that was patley’s voice.
What are they talking about?. And why is Samantha’s voice teary?
I need to hear all of this. I thought within as my ears recorded everything they were saying.
I stood there for about twenty minutes.
The more I listened, the more I became lost and confused.
And who is Elisa? I thought as my mind ran with different thoughts.
Their discussion became more interesting when I heard my name in the middle of it.
“Miriam. She saw me sneak back into the room”
“Miriam? She was awake?”
What are these two up to? And why is my name part of their Gossip?
Aren’t they supposed to be a part of the morning devotion.
Why is patley telling Samantha to rest like she is sick? Why did they…..
“What are you doing here Miriam?”
I instantly frozed at a spot. That voice belongs to no other person than Old Audrey’s.
Am I in trouble now?
What am I gonna reply this woman?
I contemplated as I bit hard on my lower lip.
