The housemaid disaster Episode 25 & 26

Angela ran inside to see her. She wanted to see for herself before believing. She wanted to see her and tell her ” Baby wake up Angel is here” if she ignores her, that would tell her that it was really happening in reality not a dream.
But when she shook her, calling her all the sweet names she new and she just lay there, speechless, cold shivers ran through her. Ebere was stiff. She felt she was shaking a log of wood, not her own Ebere. It then dawned on her that she was gone. Gone for life.
Angela threw herself to the ground, crying out her eyes. She couldn’t believe Ebere was gone. Gone to the land of no return. Forever.
David, who followed her every move came and consoled her, seeing it purely on her that she was truly hurt by the demise of her friend.
“No amount of crying can bring her back now. Don’t throw yourself to the ground again please. Have you forgotten that you are pregnant?” David easily pulled her up from the ground.

Few minutes later, the ambulance came and Ebere’s corpse was taken to the mortuary. Angela watched with great fear in David’s arms how Ebere’s corpse was taken down from the ambulance.
She looked into the large room and saw uncountable number of dead people lying there. Soon, her friend would join them.
She saw the little note written at the entrace which read
Angela shook her head but it was the real fact.
“shine bright like a diamond”
“shine bright like a diamond”
Angela was still brooding in the bedroom when her phone rang. She ignored it. Since David was now at home, waiting for call up from his company due to the suspension he got for missing work for days without asking for permission, he offered to do the cooking and made her promise him should would not cry again. He never expected such a sad incident to happen today of all days. Today that his wife discovered she was pregnant. He expected she would be full of happiness and smiles but things had turned the opposite way.
He had asked Angela the essence of crying for someone whom attempted killing her but the question kind of got her angry. Poor David had to apologise.
The phone did not stop ringing. Angela wiped her tears and reached for it. It was her father.
“Good afternoon Dad” She spoke into the phone, trying really hard to make her voice sound normal.
“Good afternoon my Angel. This one you are sounding like this, what happened? Have you been crying?” Mr.uwa asked.
“Dad. Ebere is dead” She announced coldly.
“what? What happened to her. I thought her marriage is coming up in few days time?”Mr.uwa asked not believing her ears.
Angela couldn’t say anything else. Making him come up with the reason why he called.
“Please i need you to come over immediately. I think there is something you need to know.Its a good news” He said.
“Alright Dad” Angela responded before the line went dead.
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 passion she had to kill her was no longer there but the hatred still lingered.
Her mood worsened. If she knew the reason her father called her had something to do with Sonia and her mother she could have 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 brought her to their house.
Could they have brought her to apologise to Angela and her husband so they can accept her back????. She was ready to apologise and confess to them if that be the case but she was never ready 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, making Angela look at everybody 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 wide 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 brought 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, 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 through their mind.
David too became 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 please 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 touch.
This revelation left her with mixed feelings. So she had been sleeping with her sister’s husband.
She remembered all the years she spent with Adaora in ignorance and how the woman had played 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. Please Sonia, find it in your heart to forgive me” Adaora pleaded.
“Don’t touch me” Sonia fought as Adaora came holding her.
“Is there something we need to know?” Mr.uwa asked, glancing at Angela, Sonia and David who looked disturbed.
For the first time, Sonia stared deeply at her said parents. The looks on their faces showed they were ready 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 played 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 through.
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 please stooooooooooooooop”
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 brakes from a black toyota was heard after knocking Sonia, sending her to the ground.
“Sonia noooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
