Most wanted maid
Angela entered the room with David,who insisted he must go with her.Her parents were sitted in the parlour with Adaora and Sonia,to her surprise.She stared at her,that [email protected] she had to kill her was no longer there but the hatred still lingered.
Her mood wors£ned.If she knew the reason her father called her had something to do with Sonia and her mother,she could her figured out a reason not to come.
Sonia shifted closely to her mother,seeing Angela and David.She carefully avoided their eyes,still wondering why Angela’s parents had brou-ght her to their house.Could they have brou-ght her to apologise to Angela and her husband so they can accept her back.She was re-ady to apologise and confess to them if that be the case but she was never re-ady to continue working with them anymore.There was no way she can stand their faces everyday,knowing what she had done earlier.
“Mom,Dad,what’s going on?”Angela asked after greeting them.
“Come my daughter,”Her father called her to sit by his side,”My son,let her sit with me here”He jokinly referred to David who smiled.
After a short silence,ma-king Angela look at everyb©dy in confusion,Adaora began.
First with apologies on what she did to her half sister Ngozi,out of envy,after their father died.
Angela’s eyes opened wi-de in disbelief.She was related to her mother?
Sonia too,stole glances at her mother in confusion.
Adaora finally said it all while Mr.uwa brou-ght out the DNA result,handing it to Angela,thinking she would be so happy knowing that she has a sister.
Sonia shifted from her mother,her mother?,standing some distance away from her.
She stared at Adaora,who bowed her head low,supporting it with her hands.She was shedding tears.
Her eyes darted to Angela who was also looking at her and their eyes locked.
Several thoughts and questions running throu-gh their mind.
David too,[email protected]£ weak all of a sudden.This shouldn’t be happening.
“Dad tell me its not true,”Angela stared at her father and held her mom,”mom?”
They had thought she would be happy to hear that she has a sister.The sister she always wished she had.Her mother wondered what Angela was thinking as she started shedding tears,tears of which knew were not of joy.This is something she waited so long for.To hear someday,that she has a sister.Why does it feel so wrong? Why the tears?
“Sonia,plea-se forgive me.These are your parents.Angela is your sister.I regret everything i have done”Adaora pleaded in tears coming to Sonia who was taking her steps backwards,to avoid her t©uçh.
This revelation left her with mixed feelings.So she had been slee-ping with her sister’s husband.
She remembered all the years she spent with Adaora in ignorance and how the woman had pla-yed down all her efforts.She had been right all these years,thinking that Adaora might not be her biological mother due to the way she was treated by her.
“You have the right to be angry with me.plea-se Sonia,find it in your heart to forgive me”Adaora pleaded.
“Don’t t©uçh me”Sonia fought as Adaora [email protected]£ holding her.
“Is there something we need to know?”Mr.uwa asked,glancing at Angela,Sonia and David who looked disturbe-d.
For the first time,Sonia stared de-eply at her said parents.The looks on their faces showed they were re-ady to accept her as their daughter.That must have been the reason why they saved her from facing the law for the crime she committed.
But the look on Angela’s face was different.
Sonia shook her head,muttering some words to herself.She must end it all.She cannot live with the shame.Her fate had always pla-yed against her.It seemed life truly swore never to be fair to her.
“No no. I am going to kill myself”Sonia said loudly,running out of the house.Everyone took after her immediately but she was determined to end it all.To rest from all the troubles she has been throu-gh.
She saw the cars speeding to and fro at the main road and started running towards that direction.
“Don’t do it Sonia”
“I forgive you Sonia.You are my sister plea-se st©p”
Sonia paid deaf ears to them.Her mind was made up.
With a proper calculation,she ran into the main road and stood still with her eyes closed.The screeching sound of [email protected] from a black toyota was heard after knocking Sonia,s£nding her to the ground.
AT THE GRAVE YARD
The ground was w€t with tears and mourning.
David held Angela,comforting her as she stared at the grave,crying bitterly,wishing she could come back to life to spend more time with them.She had forgiven and forgotten whatever wrong she did her
“I will never forget the good times we had.I have known you for a long time.You were my best friend.A friend like no other.
Even in my next world,i would still want you to be my friend again and again.
I love you Baby.
We shall meet again to [email protected] no more”Angela couldn’t control her tears as she dropped the flower she was holding in Ebere’s grave.
Mike was affected the most.Words were not enough to say how he felt.His precious pearl,had been taken away.He never knew if can ever find someone who will truly love him like she did.He blamed himself for abandoning her in the first place because of the rumours he heard.
His eyes were almost empty from all the tears he shed.
Sonia,with her bandaged wounds, sniffed at regular intervals.She feared Ebere still bore grudges against her before her death,though her sister Angela had told her Ebere bore no grudge against her.
“For the short time i have known you,i discovered you did most of the things you did out of frustration.But you are a good person.
Rest in peace Ebere”Sonia dropped her own flower on her grave.
Mr.and mrs.uwa also expressed their goodbye message to their daughter’s best friend,Ebere.
They knew Angela would be greatly affected by her death because right from their daughter’s school days,they were more than friends.
Mike bur-sted into fresh tears again.David had to console him,telling him that God will provide her another woman.
When everyone was set to leave,Angela squatted by the grave in tears,refusing to leave with them.
Sonia walked up to her and helped her up.
“It’s okay sister.I believe she is in a better place now”Sonia dried her tears with her own clothes and [email protected] her.
Half way to the car,Angela bur-sted into a new cry.
“Oooh.Its ok now.plea-se st©p crying.I don’t want my baby boy to become a ‘cry cry’ baby when he is born”David said,smiling and bent his back in front of her,to the admiration of others.Mike was alre-ady gone”Enter my back let me carry you”
Angela st©pped crying.She soon found herself smiling,despite the tears she was still shedding.
“Which baby boy? Don’t start again o.Its a girl.My baby is a girl not a boy”Angela managed to say before entering David’s back,who eagerly carried her gently to the car.
“Aren’t you going to open the door for me?”Angela asked,ma-king a face.
“With all plea-sure,”David opened the door and she entered,”Yes! The queen is in”
He shut the door,entered throu-gh the driver’s door,waved her inlaws goodbye and sped away.
Sonia and her parents watched the car speed off till it was out of sight.
They got into their own car and slowly drove away.
The better days are still ahead.
The new rains will come down soon.
Sometimes,destiny has its own ways which we find questionable but time comes in this life when we are left with no options than to accept the things we can’t change.
