A day like this one, made me grow wild and sinister in thoughts. In the past , I would have resorted to something more painful and wicked to almost everyone that caused me pain.

Doctor Johnson walked into the room and I watched as he took up the charts and pretending to jot down something . Kemi had alre-ady taken Funmi home and [email protected]£ back briefly before she left for work.
I looked at Dr. Johnson with so much disappointment. Indeed I was.
” Why did you fool me? I asked as my eyes pryed into the chart he was holding.
” I did not … ” He said ” I only gave you a sedative because you wanted my help. So I did what I thought was best.”
” Which did not work. Are you pla-ying games with me here?
He was surprised and turned sideways facing me , this time he put the chart on the carbinet.
” I remember giving you a sh0t of anaesthesia” Dr. Johnson said ” which you requested; after which I emptied your aspirin pills into the sink then flu-shed it down the pipe.
” You failed ! ” I shouted and twitched my muscles.
” Failed? I did not. ” He continued” I s£nt an SOS (an emergency alert) text message to your friend …. Kemi and left your house unnoticed.”
I wished dearly he had not done anything. I wished he had not thrown the pills down the sink, instead he could have just sholve it down his ugly @ss. I had just wasted time and energy begging for love. Gabriel must have thought me a fool or lunatic that tried to take her own life into her hands.
” When Will I get my complete payment? He said.
” You will get nothing from me. ” I relaxed my head on the be-d then said ” You can leave now. I alre-ady have things un-der control”
” How? He asked , looking very confused.
” Its complicated.” I continued ” Just book my discharging papers so I can get the hell out of here”
He pu-ll-ed the door open and I sighed biterlly.
” Oh! Lest I forget, doctor. Your report was marvelous . They actually believed that I drugged myself. That I took an overdose . Incredible job!!!” ” I said as I shook my head .
I smiled hysterically and picked up my buzzing phone on t©p the cabinet.. A text from an unknown s£nder re-ad:
*Its done….just like you wanted it.*

The doctors were really busy. I heard the Chief Surgeon give out instructions to her surbodinates and every hand was on deck to save the lives of Gabriel and Tayo, who properly had lost so much blood alre-ady.
” Charge CPR…. Clear … Defibrillator fused… Clear… Charge CPR… Clear… Heart rate? , pulse unstable .. Charge …. Clear.”
Mimi was shedding tears while Kate whimpered in shock. Kate had protested to join the medical team in the ER( emergency room) , but was refused entrance. Some moments later , a young man [email protected]£ walking down the hall way with two other ladies and a little boy.
From their discussion , I picked it up that they were family to Kate. No one talked to me- Nob©dy cared. The guy went up ahead and peeped throu-gh the gallery of the ER, but was scolded by a nurse who told him to leave the window.
Another lady [email protected]£, disturbe-d and crying her lungs out. Kate identified with her as Tayo’s wife. Her husband was now in a trauma shock and sli-pping gradually into a coma.
* ” What have I done? ” Kate asked Mimi ” I put my husband in harm’s way”
I was eavesdropping ( and listening from a distance as they had no idea about it)
” Mimi” she continued ” Why did I follow your idea of having fun?
” Don’t blame me now” Mimi blurted out as she cleaned her face off with a handkerchief. ” You wanted to have a ” We- time remember? How is it my fault?
” I asked you to [email protected] mother’s successful surgery with me. I never wanted Andy to tag along! ” Kate said ” And how come he was at the gym club for God’s sake?
” Are you kidding? ” Mimi asked ” He is a platinum member. He virtually owns the gym. Will you blame me for what I have no idea about or pray for Gabriel and Tayo’s lives?
Mimi’ s eyes turned red and her cheeks were scaly with dried tears. She began another round of crying her heart out. I had heard enough as it dawned upon me that I was at fault. If I had not f0rç£d them to have coffee with me, Tayo would have not got sh0t trying to save his friend. Gabriel was only surprised to see Kate in my car. If my common s-en-se, was good enough I could have s-en-sed danger and st©pped the nons-en-se.
I sneaked out as they were too busy to even notice my pres£nce – nor even when I’m gone.
Outside the entrance of the main reception, I bu-mped into a lady.
” Sorry…” she began.
” watch where you are going ,lady” I was indeed furious .
She was wearing high heels, very tall and was beautiful with her blonde hair.
” You watch it . ” She said” I apologised and yet you vent out your anger on me.mtchewwww”
She [email protected] me by and I noticed as she looked left and right ( in a very suspicious manner) before she went down into the hall way. Something in me s-en-sed that she was up to evil . I could pick a smell of danger , somewhere.
