The final *saga*

:::::::***Episode 30***…..

 

 

Tony sat on a couch, his palms supporting his

forehead. Things were difficult. His house was

filled with police men, SSS and what have yoy,

they were brought by Deji to search the

house.

They still believed he had a hand in Lara’s

disappearance. Perhaps because of what he

did to her in the past. He’s full of regret.

Tears clouded his eyes as remembered Lara’s

word back then. She once told him ‘the law of

karma still reigns’.

That law was hunting him down.

Now she disappeared when he needed her

most, when he loved her with all his heart,

when he…

“hey! Mr Ritualist, come and open the door to

your study!” Deji squealed at him.

He glared at her, and she returned the look.

He bit his lower lip.

“Abi ko gbo ni? Didn’t you hear what she said?”

Funke hissed.

“Tony open the door for them.” Ifiora said

quitely. He was looking frail.

“Please don’t tamper with my documents, they

are vital.” Tony told them as he opened the

door.

“Vital ko, bournvita ni! You people should

search every thing jare! Who knows maybe he

has some document for her kidnap.” Deji

ordered the policemen.

“Well, we didn’t see, and couldn’t find anything

suspicious.” the policemen emerged.

“Tony, where did you keep Lara’s remains?”

Deji taunted him.

“We’ll take you with us, till we’re done with our

investigations.” one of the SSS’s said.

“But officer…” Ifiora protested

“Shut up! Gbe enu re soun jare!” Funke

screamed at him.

“please take this ritualist out of here jor! If

possible arrest his parents too.” Deji told the

police men.

Tears streaked

down Tony’s cheeks, as they

handcuffed his wrists. They were about to lead

him out, when the door bell rang.

“I sorry oga! Oga make I come see

something.”Adamu- Tony’s gateman walked in

excitedly

“See what?” Deji eyed him in disdain.

“Hellooo…” Lara cooed as she walked in

holding her baby. Jide and his parents followed

her in.

Everybody gaped at her in utter shock, nobody

could speak or move.

“Lara?” Tony’s lips quivered.

“Lara, you!” Deji screamed in horror.

“Yes me!” Lara said handing over her baby to

Amara who was weeping.

“What’s going on here? Why’s everywhere in a

mess?” she looked around her.

“What’s the meaning of that handcuff?” she

asked again, gesturing towards Tony.

“I’m back home baby! Well and alive.” she

kissed him as she removed the hand cuff.

“ah mad! How comes!” Deji couldn’t believe

her eyes yet.

“Not how comes, but how it went.” Lara turned

to face her.

“Officer, you came to arrest my husband? No

no! You are wrong. Let me tell you who my

kidnapper is.” Lara smiled at a police man.

Deji was already making her way towards the

exit…

“Hold her!” Lara shouted, just as Deji opened

the door.

Deji ran out of the room, with the police men

following, they shot her leg.

“Haaaa! Don’t kill me oo” Deji screamed as

she held her wounded leg

“She was my kidnapper.” Lara announced.

“Its not my

fault o! I was paid o!” Deji kept

screaming.

“Its funke o, its funke! Its your mother.”

“My mother?” Lara’s jaw dropped.

She looked around for her mother

“Mummy?”

Funke shivered, as everybody gaped at her.

“wonderful!” Ifiora exclaimed.

“Did you say wonderful? This is just

unbelievable”. A policeman said, as they

shoved Funke and Deji into a van.

“Don’t take

my mother away.” Lara protested.

“I’m sorry madam, your mother isn’t above the

law. See you in court.” the police man told

her, before they drove away.

“But she is my mother!” Lara screamed.

“she….she can’t harm me!

Tony held her gently as she wept. His Lara

was back, alive and well, with his child

He collected the baby from his mother, he

hugged and kissed her.

“Thank you” he whispered to Lara

“Thank you for making Baby Ngozi a reality.”

he hugged her.

::::::::*******::::::::

Lara wept as her mother was led into the

dock, alongside Deji. Deji had to use crutches

because of her leg. Lara looked around the

court room, Tony was sitting beside her

holding baby Ngozi, Tony’s parents were

present, her father’s relatives-Baba Lagbaja

and co were there for her. Even her rescuers,

Shina and his wife Ronke were present.

“stop crying” Tony held her.

She pushed him away, he expected her to stop

crying, when her mother was about to be

prosecuted?

“COUURRT”

Everybody rose when the Judge walked in

except Lara, she was too weak to stand.

The judge was a female, Lara watched with

keen interest as she spoke. Her father had

wanted her to become a lawyer, but there she

was without even a secondary school

certificate -courtesy of her mother.

She was deep in her thoughts when she heard

the call to the first witness, she was to go and

witness against her friend and mother, she felt

reluctant. Tony nudged her.

She stood before the court, she told them her

ordeal, carefully skipping every part that

involved her mother.

Tony gave her an unsatisfied look as she sat

down.

She looked away, what does he expect, she

still loved her mum.

The next witness was called, Lara looked up

sharply she heard a familiar voice.

“My name is Bayo Olayemi”

Bayo? Lara gasped. She hadn’t seen nor heard

from him ever since he raided her home.

“I was paid by Funke to rob OmoLara’s home,

and To Molest her.” Bayo concluded.

“Next witness..”

Tony nudged Lara the fifteenth time, she

glared at him.

“Look” he whispered.

She looked up

“Sophia!” she said in a fierce whisper.

Lara wept all through Sophia’s statement, she

hardly heard a word.

“Please listen,” Tony told her when the Judge

was to give the sentence.

Bayo was sentenced three years, for

attempted rape and robbery.

Sophia twelve months, for arranging Lara’s

kidnap.

Deji was sentenced for life, with hard labour.

Funke too was sentenced life imprisonment

with HARD labour.

“No no no!” Lara jumped up.

“My mother is innocent!” she wailed

Tony held unto her firmly.

“Leave me!” she pushed him away, rushing

towards her mother.

“Don’t take my mother away, she’s innocent o!”

she screamed as the police barred her way.

She passed out as her mother was led into the

black maria.

::::::*****::::::

“Sorry sweerie” Tony wiped Lara’s tears with a

hankerchief.

He sat beside her on the bed.

“You have to stop crying, you should be happy

now, all will be fine.”

“It won’t be fine!…life won’t be the same

again without my mother…she is all I have.”

she sobbed.

“Its alright” tony patted her.

“Remember, I’m here for you, our baby is

here…my parents are here…we’re gonna be

one big family, ” he said in a cool voice..

“Big happy family?” she searched his eyes.

” yea baby! A big happy family, with little or no

enemies.” Tony smiled at her.

“Sure!” Lara managed a smile as she hugged

him.

He was right, she’ll have a happy life after all,

no more selfish mother, Sophia out of the way,

Deji cleared; there’s nothing more to fear.

Her FAITH in God made her dream a reality.

She had faith that her husband would turn to

good, that she would have a child despite his

impotency, that she would not die when she

was kidnapped.

She couldn’t help but to thank God for his

love, her faith in God turned her once

meaningless life into a meaningful one.

God’s love and grace was unquantifiable.

::::::*******::::::::

THE END

learn to have faith in God and God alone, in

every moment of your life.

Remain blessed
