The housemaid disaster Episode 9 & 10

“shine bright like a diamond”
“shine bright like a diamond…..”
Angela tossed on her be-d, the phone kept ringing. She peered at the screen, It was “Sweet mother” calling.
She tossed again from one side of the be-d to another, she was still enjoying her sleep. It was the ringing phone that woke her up. She glanced at the clock hanging on the wall, It was 5.25am.
She wondered why her mother could be calling so early that morning.
“Good morning mum”She finally spoke into the phone.
“Angela Angela are you alright?”Mrs uwa asked from the other end of telephone.
“I’m alright mum, I hope there is no problem”Angela asked curiously. Her mother’s voice didn’t sound normal.
“Angela, i had a dream that’s why i called you” Mrs uwa said with a shaky voice.
“A dream?”Angela asked yawning.
“Angela, i had a dream, you were travelling by a bus, sitting very comfortably on your seat and then a lady c@m£ out from nowhere and started dragging the seat with you. The seat that you paid ticket for. What baffled me was that everyb©dy in the bus kept quiet as if they didn’t see what was happening. Then she finally pu-ll-ed you out of the fast moving bus and you fell down on the express road. Immediately, i woke up”She narrated with a de-ep sigh of confusion.
Angela heaved and yawned again.
“Mama, it’s just only a dream. Don’t worry okay? I’m fine”Angela said.
“No no no Angela, my dreams are not just dreams. I ha-rd ly dream and when i have one, its usually a revelation because it later comes to pas-s. Angela,you must pray ha-rd , pray real ha-rd because i s-en-se danger” Mrs uwa warned. Angela was reluctant to saying anything.
Her mother’s dreams comes into reality though but only one case gave her doubts. Her little sister was taken by unknown gunmen few months after her birth and they never heard anything about her again. She felt her sister could be dead if not blood and destiny ought to have brou-ght them together again but her mother kept saying that her lost daughter was still alive that she dreams of it.
Angela openly doubted the possibility of her still being alive. She also remembered how her mother had told them she had a dream where her aunty, her mother’s sister had an accident and died. Her mother had told her sister about it and asked her to pray. They too prayed over it. Few months later, her aunty died in a ghastly motor accident.
Angela bec@m£ scared. She clasped her hand together and muttered something.
“Angela you must come over so we can pray over this. Tell David about it, I’m very sure he would allow you come” Mrs uwa said before finally hanging up.
Angela got up immediately and went up to David to tell him about it. David granted her the permission without wasting anytime.
The pastor, Angela and her mother visited told Angela that she must fast for seven days (6am-3am) and at the end of the fast, she must come for prayers. Because of this, she stayed over at her parents place as instructed by her mother.
The pastor didn’t actually explain the dream but he only said he s-en-sed danger.
“Great disaster”
David rolled again on the big be-d, curling up at one end to see if sleep would welcome him into it’s soothing arms. He kept still expecting it to come but it never c@m£. Not even a shadow of that blessing called sleep did he see.
He knew for certain that there was no way sleep can take him away in his thoughts.
He was thinking, thinking about Sonia but trying to convince himself that it was his dear Angela he was thinking of. He fought those thoughts but they persisted. He found it strange how Sonia filled up his mind, heart and thoughts. They have lived for quite a longtime and he never felt like this before, he wondered if it could be because of the fact that Angela was not around.
He shook his head negatively. That was not the first time Angela left the house without returning for few days. Of course the poor girl was a maid,employed to help out with the household chores, he never saw any nee-d of thinking about her when he had Angela but tonight he just couldn’t un-derstand what was happening.
He had called Angela on the phone few minutes ago and they gisted and laughed for sometime before bidding each other goodnight but still, the beautiful image of Sonia couldn’t get out of his mind. It was as if someone held her picture to his face for him to see and he was trying to push it away but the person holding it refused letting go. Just like when someone tells you to shut your eyes and think about other things ap@rt from him surely, you must think about that person and try not to.
A memory flashed into his mind was the day Sonia showed up when he was watching a football match. He remembered the way she had appeared and how lovely she looked. Another memory that got him up on his feet was when he saw her slee-ping in her room with everything that made her a woman open for him to see. He equally remembered when she stood up and the be-dspre-ad fell down. He pictured her fair, elegant and inviting b0ss0m, her tempting curves and shapes.
He swallowed ha-rd and made for the door as the whole incident kept repla-ying in his head. He headed towards her room, though he didn’t know what he was going there to do but he felt like beholding her face physically, perhaps, it could help cure this new sickness of his.

He walked lazily until he arrived at her door. He reasoned within himself that it would be a disturbance if he called her name at that time of the night without any solid reason. He tried opening the door quietly to just steal a look at her and then go back in peace but it was locked. He rested against the door and muttered something un-der his breath.
He finally made up his mind to knock. He knocked gently the first time, no answer. When he tried again, he heard Sonia’s calm voice from within demanding to know whom it was.
“I’m the one”David’s voice was weak.
Sonia jumped down from the be-d and adjusted her pyjamas. Her eyes went up to the clock hanging on the wall, It was 10:50pm. Soon, Ebere’s voice was heard on the phone.
“What is it? Two days 48 hours left. The clock is ticking…….”
Sonia started coughing for the fear of David hearing a single thing until it was muted. She took the phone and made for the door. She opened the door and found David standing there helplessly.
“Sir, i hope there is no problem?” Sonia asked with a smile.
David scratched his head as his eyes ravaged her b©dy. Her pyjamas were quite revea-ling.
He shook his head.”Its just that i can’t sleep”
Sonia alre-ady un-derstood what was going on. She nee-ded no soothsayer to tell her that her charms were at work. Hence, the way he was acting gave her morale a boost.
A mischievous smile pla-yed on herl-ips as she gave out a little yawn, covering her mouth.
“Should i come and keep your company? Hope you don’t mind” Sonia asked almost in a whisper.
David saw himself smile as he nodded in approval. Sonia held his right hand with both palms and off they went with smiles on their faces.
David got into the be-d and exhaled de-eply while Sonia stood there moping at him. She remembered the very same way Paul was moping at her from one corner of the room when she woke up on his be-d. She closed her eyes as the memories flashed in.
She knew it wasn’t just company she was going to keep David that very night. She knew for sure that something more than that must follow.
“Killing Paul is what i shouldn’t have done and visiting him in the first place, a mistake i would never forget” She thought.
“Come on don’t be scared” David urged her as she climbe-d slowly into the be-d, dropping her phone in a comfortable position.
She was re-ady to accept whatever happens after tonight. She soon forgot about Ebere whom she knew was listening. She knew the call would soon get terminated when her airtime gets exhausted and she wasn’t re-ady to pick her call, should she call back because she carefully activated the silent profile before dialling her line.
David’s phone rang, It was the second time the phone was ringing but he was too busy to answer it. He was busy with Sonia as they m0@n ed in plea-sure on the soft foam. They were far away on another planet. On another world of bliss, plea-sure and happiness.
When Angela dialled his phone the third time and he didn’t answer. She smiled and murmured some prayer for him and blew a k!ssinto the phone.
“Sleep well, darling”
