House Of Secrets🏘️

Final Episode



‘Yes Madam’ I swallowed hard, it would take a miracle for me to

stay alive.

‘What is this? Are you crazy’? Romeo was terrified.

‘Mum? What are you doing? You think you can kill us all and bury

us in the garden’? Rose went wild with curses.

‘Shut up you little Bytch, I am not your mother, I couldn’t have

birthed you, you’re sick, your father too’ Helen dropped the

Camera on the table and pointed the gun at Romeo.

‘Play it, and I want pin drop silence, come this way Ajunwa’ she

ordered me and left for the door.

‘Helen you don’t have to do this…’ the pastor wondered what had

come over his wife.

She didn’t say a word, Romeo obeyed and played the video.

‘Mum…I can explain’ Rose was shocked, I could see it on her face.

‘Helen, please, it was the devil’ the pastor fell on his knees.

‘the devil? Funny’ she laughed.

‘So you were Bleeping your own daughter, how nice is that? You

connived with her to destroy me, you told Romeo I was the one

who’d killed Grace and I should be shamed, after everything I did

for you Rose, why?’ Helen’s voice cracked.

‘Mum, I’m so sorry, please forgive me’ she cried.

‘When did it start’? Helen wiped her face.

‘I am sorry Helen, this is all my fault, I forced myself on her’ The

pastor crawled near her.

‘No dad, let’s tell her the truth, that we love each other, no one

would fathom this but

it is real. Mum, I know you wouldn’t kill

me, I’m your daughter, all I ask is for forgiveness’ Rose begged.

‘My daughter? Sorry Rose,I would put a bullet through you, and I

wouldn’t feel a thing’ Helen replied and pulled the trigger, without

hesitation, Rose lay dead.

‘Jesus!’ we all screamed, this woman was crazy.

‘Shut up you all, now let the dinner begin’ Helen wiped her face

and pulled a chair.

‘So you set me up”? Romeo laughed.

‘Call it whatever you want, but you’re dying tonight and I am

burying you underneath my roses’ Helen smiled.

I watched as the pastor wept aside his daughter.

‘Helen, I would never forgive you for this, you killed our only

daughter’ he cried.

‘Oh shut up and stop acting the saint, and by the way, you killed

her, I wore gloves remember? So it’s your fingerprints the police

would see when they come’ Helen laughed.

‘What are you talking about’? Pastor Ita wondered.

‘Well, let’s say, you touched the gun while you were asleep, I kind

of pressed your palms to it, so start weeping for yourself,

because I would ensure you end up behind bars for the murder

of our daughter’ Helen exhaled and faced Romeo whose face was

a cloud of fear, shock and disgust.

‘So Romeo, how much shall I pay you? You are the cause of

everything, why didn’t you keep your nosy self out of my family

business? You threatened me with those lame messages, now it’s

time to end you, any last words’? he asked.

‘If you kill me, you’ll die too’ he sounded confident.

‘Why is that’? Helen raised a brow.


and his boys have surrounded the building,they would kill

you if I don’t come out alive’ he said.

‘How stupid, now Ajunwa, tell him about our little plan’ she

pointed the gun at me.

‘Grace? What is going on here? and why does she call you that’

Romeo asked.

‘I’m sorry Romeo, I am not Grace, just a look alike and Oliver is

working with us’ I explained.

‘Oh my God, Helen, please don’t kill me, I promise to stay off your

family, please’ he begged, so Oliver had betrayed him?

‘No, too late, next time you come into this world, just choose a

better occupation, don’t be a snitch or a blogger, you could be like

me, a rose gardener’ Helen smiled and pulled the trigger.

‘No’ her husband screamed. I couldn’t, it was so easy for this

woman to shoot people, I knew I could die any minute, so I

started reciting prayers.

‘Shut your mouth you dirty bastard, else you’ll join them’ anger

flashed her eyes.

‘Just kill me, I accept, take this pain away,, you monster’ the man


‘No, death is too easy for you’ Helen smirked, he deserved to live

without his precious daughter.

‘Please don’t kill me’ it was my turn to beg her.

‘No, I’m not killing you, your job is to bury these bodies in the

garden, now get to work, let me deal with Oliver’ she gave her

orders carefully and I obliged, I had no option, clearly, Helen Ita

was a psycho.

Coincidentally, Oliver stepped into the house as I moved over

Romeo’s body.

‘Oliver’ she drawled his name, but he ignored her, he scanned the

bodies on the ground in disgust and before one could say Jack

Robinson he pulled out a gun at Helen.

‘Oliver’? I fixed my eyes on him, what was he doing?

‘I’m sorry I have to do this Helen, but it’s the only way to have

my freedom, If I let you live, you may blackmail me in future, so

goodbye’ He was about to pull the trigger when we heard

gunshots outside.

‘You’re surrounded by the Police, everyone step out with your

hands on your head’ the police radio echoed and we all froze.

It seemed like the world had stopped. Oliver pointed the gun at

Helen and Helen Pointed hers at him, while the Pastor widened his

mouth in shock.

‘Did you snitch on me’? Helen asked weakly, she hadn’t expected

the police.

‘Let’s go outside’ Oliver lowered his gun and placed his hands on

his head and we all followed suit.

‘There she is, please don’t hurt her, she is innocent’ Mark pointed

at me.

‘Mark? What is going on here? what are the police doing here’?

Helen was stunned to see him with them.

‘All of you must remain silent, anything you say or do may be

used against you in the court of law’ a police man barked and I

watched in sheer horror as they were handcuffed, one by one.

‘Mark what did you do’? Helen asked.

‘Something that was necessary, you, dad and Rose killed Grace

and buried her in the garden, you killed Nelson too, even when I

raped all those girls, you did nothing to correct me, I left to think

about my life and I realized I have a mental disorder, and I had to

see my therapist who encouraged me to report you all to the

police, luckily I found dad here too, a pastor who is a murderer. I

am not sorry Mum, I don’t regret this, as I would be joining you

guys too for assaulting women’ Mark sneered at them. He had

decided to report himself at the police station, maybe that could

absolve the guilt he felt for hurting Ajunwa.

‘Where’s Rose’? Mark asked me.

‘Two dead bodies’ a police man shouted from the house.

‘Who killed her’? he asked.

‘Your mother, Helen’ I replied.



I was stunned that Mark could offer himself to be arrested just to

show he was remorseful about what he’d done. I had forgiven

him and told him his actions were unnecessary but he was hell

bent on being punished so I left him.

There had never been such a scandal in Nigeria such as the Ita

family scandal, not even Miss Anambra’s cucumber saga could

beat it, theirs was on a higher level. How could a Pastor sleep with

his own daughter?

‘How could my Uncle sleep with his own daughter’? Joy dropped

the newspaper in disgust.

‘If you ask me, na who I go ask’? I replied.


‘I’m just glad you came out of all these alive, Grace wasn’t that

lucky, Nelson too’ Joy sighed.

She was as shocked as many Nigerians to discover the dark side

of a man they all looked up to, his wife was an icon to many but

they both were sentenced to life imprisonment.

‘It was really a house of secrets’ I was glad I had made it home.

Grace had died, Nelson followed, then Rose and Romeo, I was

just lucky.

‘No, it is a house of monsters’ Joy said and we burst out laughing.

This got me thinking, do you know your house? Is it a house of

secrets? Or monsters? Are there just roses in your garden? Or

something dark waiting to escape? Show me your house….
