When Williams ordered the nurses out of the room, he went into his office and looked at the picture of his father that his mother had given him; indeed his father was the one lying in coma. He left his office and returned to the ward and he thought of how to silently sniff life out of the man who was supposed to be his father without raising the least suspicion.
Williams: “Mr. Man, I refuse to call you father because you have never been a father to me. I know that you are in coma but that does not prevent me from telling you what I need to tell you before I kill you. Yes, you heard me right! I will kill you! Funny isn’t it? I’m the doctor who is supposed to help you but I’ll do the reverse and that’s killing you! Today, your sins have already caught up with you and Karma has visited you. The woman who you chose above my mother is already lying there, stone dead while my own mother is still alive and will be alive for a long time to come.
What kind of a man gets a woman pregnant only to abandon her for almost thirty years if not a heartless man and what sort of son does a heartless father breed if not a heartless son? Can a lion give birth to a lamb? I had the opportunity once let it slide by but this time I won’t let this opportunity pass me by again! Remember, I’m just like you!” Williams snickered about pulling out the oxygen on his father’s nose when a nurse walks in.
Nurse Chichi: “Doctor! What are you doing? The patient is in coma and taking that off could end his life.”
Williams: (Fidgeting) “erm…I didn’t…I was only trying to adjust it well for him, looks like the nurse who fixed it didn’t fix it well.”
Nurse Chichi: “But doctor, you fixed it yourself a while ago before you told us to excuse you.”
Williams: “Oh yeah, I did. I forgot, don’t mind me.”
The nurse remained there staring at him.
Williams: “Well, what are you here staring at? Are you insinuating that I don’t know my job? You said I asked you to excuse me earlier and you are still here?”
Nurse Chichi: “I am sorry, doctor. She lives shutting the door gently behind her.”
When the nurse left, abruptly he grabbed a pillow, puts it over the patient’s head and choked him to death. He walked out of the ward and bumped into Angela, sweating.
Williams: “What a pleasant surprise, my angel. I wasn’t expecting you here today.”
Angela: “Don’t you dare call me your angel you cheat, get out of my way!”
Williams in a plea stood before her,
Williams: “What are you talking about?”
Angela: “I am talking about how you are cheating on me with Linda, oh, you think I wouldn’t find out? Well I did and I am calling off this useless engagement. You can have your ring and I never want to see you around me again!”
Williams: “My angel, please calm down. It’s not what you think, she seduced me.”
Angela: “Interesting! Is that the best lie you can come up with? Why don’t you just go ahead and say she raped you? To think that I trusted you so much that I allowed myself to get pregnant for you….”
Williams: “You are pregnant for me? Oh my God, so, I am going to be a father. This is the best news I have ever heard. Please, my angel, let’s make this work. Forgive me and let’s give our child a certain future,” he attempted to embrace but she pushed him aside
Angela: “There is no us. You lost the right to the paternity of my child when you slept with my friend and I promise that you will never set eyes on my child. I promise you. Now, excuse me, I need to see my parents who are receiving treatment here after an auto crash.”
Williams: “What! My in-laws are in this hospital? What is their name? I could help you locate them easily.”
Angela: “They will never be your in-laws. I am here to see Mr and Mrs Antony Ilu, my parents and I demand to see them now.”
Williams: “Mr and Mrs what?!” oh no, this is not happening,” he held his head.
Angela: “What are you talking about?”
Williams: “You mean Mr Antony Ilu is your father?”
Angela: “Of course, he is my father.”
Williams: “But, erm, I mean…”
Angela: “You mean what?
Williams: “Baby, you were not being truthful and sincere to me then”
Angela: “How do you mean, you cheating idiot!”
Williams: “Well, I heard that Chief Antony Ilu organized a birthday party for his only daughter the same night I proposed to you. I can’t remember you inviting me for your birthday or even telling me about it and now you say he is your father? Your birthday was on Saturday four days after I’d proposed which a Tuesday was; the same Chief organized his daughter’s. How can it be your party when you were with me on that night?”
Angela: “It was a surprise party! My father, Chief Anthony Ilu, was to leave the country for a business trip at UAE on Thursday; he then decided to throw me a surprise birthday party. I found out only when I got home but I couldn’t reach you, your number wasn’t reachable and I’m sure you deliberately switched off your phone for you were busy screwing my own friend!” she gaped at him, he tried explaining but the words didn’t come out, she then added,
Angela: “My parents had given everyone at home a stern warning not to give me a hint and I left the house without letting anyone know. Do yo.. .” her lips started quivering, she was visibly shaking, couldn’t say more.
Williams: ” Oh, my God! I…I.. am so sorry, baby.”
Angela: “All these I sacrificed for you and see how you shattered my heart! How can I forgive you,eh?.”
Williams: “Well, I don’t know how to say this but Mr Antony Ilu is my father.”
Angela: “You are certainly going crazy. How can my father be your father?”
Williams: “He got my mother pregnant and abandoned her and today I have taken my pound of flesh!” he said with confidence.
Angela: “What is going on here, where are my parents?”
As she was talking, a nurse rushed in.
Nurse Ada: “Doctor, the accident victim whose wife died earlier has stopped breathing. He is dead.”
Angela: “My mother is dead? Mummy noooooooo, don’t leave me alone, I need you now more than ever,” She did let out an ear splitting cry.
They all rushed into the room together and Williams confirmed the patient dead. Angela on seeing the lifeless body of her father grabbed Williams by the neck shouting.
Angela: “You killed him, you said you’ve taken your pound of flesh, you killed our father. Oh Angela, you are finished, you just lost your parents and you are pregnant for your half brother. Oh God, what is my crime, what will I tell this child? How can I ever live with this?”
While the commotion was going on, a group of policemen walked in led by nurse Chichi,
Nurse Chichi: “Officer, here is the doctor, arrest him.”
Williams: “Arrest me for what? What are you talking about nurse?”
Officer: “Young man, you are under arrest for the murder of one of your patients, Mr Antony Ilu who was involved in an accident today and also the murder of one Miss Linda whose body was found in your apartment this afternoon.”
Williams: “What? Linda? Dead? I left her alive in my room this morning. I didn’t kill her.”
Nurse Chichi: “Officer, I saw him behaving strangely when he was attending to the deceased patient. I confronted him and he ordered me out. I hid myself behind the door and peeped through the opening on the door and I saw him suffocating the patient with a pillow.”
Williams: “Oh, God, I am finished. My quest for vengeance has ruined me. I wish I had listened to my mother. Officer, you need to listen to my story. The man was my biological father and…”
Officer: “…Young man, you have the right to remain silent as whatever you say will be used against you in a court of law.” Sergeant, hand cuffed him and took him away.
When Angela got home, she cried and wished her parents were alive to console her the way they always did.
Angela: “So, Williams is my half-brother? But my parents never told me my father has another child. How can I have a child whose father is my brother? And, Williams is being punished for the crime I committed in his house. I know that sooner or later, the truth will reveal that I am the culprit. The security saw me when I quickly drove out of the compound and my finger prints is on the flower vase, that is enough to pin me down. And I will have my child in jail while his father who is also his uncle is also in jail for killing his paternal and maternal grandfather. No, I would rather take my life before the law catches up with me. “She went into her bedroom, with her eyes shut, drove the knife into her stomach.
The news got to Julia that Williams had committed murder and was to be charged to court rushing out of the house she slumped and died.
