Kalu led the way to the hospital. Inside the hospital was very busy as patients were in droves: some sat at the corridor with relatives, a few dragged their feet’s, others were rushed in with crying relatives into the emergency ward. The nurses and doctor were outnumbered by the patients. Pastor and another co-tenants carried mama Chinedu with Iya Kpati and Ene trailing behind. They are both in tears,
Kalu: “Somebody please attend to us!”
Iya Kpati: “Shey,una know value human beings life?”
Eyes darted at them.Nurses brought a trolling bed and Mama Chinedu was laid on it and taken into emergency ward, one of the nurses turned to Iya kpati who was following them as they were about to enter the emergency ward, “Madam abeg you no fit follow us enter o!”
Iya Kpati: “Na wa o! but is my friends na!”
The nurse yelled, “Madam,please!” Iya kpati stopped.
Iya Kpati: “Na wa o!” she started crying,Kalu and Pastor came and led her away. They stood together at the corridor.
Iya Kpati: “Wo! If Mama Shinedu my friends sometin do em. I will ki myself oo!” started the cry again.
Pastor: “Iya, calm down please! She’d be fine!”
Kalu who stood with folded arms said,
Kalu: “Now you see that fighting isn’t good right?” he said showing little anger.
Iya Kpati trying to control sobs,
Iya Kpati: “I swear I wont fiast again o!”
Ene was sobbing in a corner with folded arms too. It was 7:30 pm
Aunty Amarachi got home at about 7:30 pm. She was so tired; it was a busy day at the office.
Aunty Amarachi: “Eh,why is the door unlocked or is Pet around?” the door was opened, she entered and bolted the door, noises came from the bedroom. What was the noise about? Counting her steps she checked the kitchen but the noise wasn’t coming from there, “ah!” the noise became more audible. It was lady and a man’s moaning the voices were talking synonymously, “yes,baby! Harder!!”
“Oh,yea,baby! You like it?”
What was happening? Aunty Amarachi said to herself. The whole of her body was shivering like dried leaves tossed around by Harmattan. It could be Pet watching a movie she said to herself. He was used to the habit of watching Porn aloud and whenever he watched any, she always knew the whole of her body would get sore; Peter would want them to practice all the styles he had watched,
Aunty Amarachi: “ Oh no,Pet, should know I’m too stressed for any of his sexual fantasies!”she said and held the knob of the door, twisted it open and the next thing heard was a shuffling noise-remained fixated to the door unable to move.
Kalu turned to Ene,
Ene: “Please take my key you’d some ingredients for soup. Help prepare something for Mama Chinedu!”
Ene nodded collecting the key,
Iya Kpati: “Kalu no worries. I will go an cook for ‘er!” turned to Ene, “Make we goes together abeg!” as they were leaving Kalu’s phone beeped it was Caro.
Kalu: “ Kedu ka ị mere”
Caro: “fine sweerie! O’bimo, speak Engrish with me na! you don’t wanting me to perfection?”
Caro had a way of cracking him up. Smiling he replied,
Caro: “Your prace is making a noise. Where’s that?”
Kalu: “ We are at the hospital” he moved away from the noise to hear her clearly, “Mama Chinedu and Iya Kpati were fighting as usual and in the process Mama Chinedu slumped. We had to rush her to the hospital!”
Caro: “na wa. What’s wrong with those women na? prease, they should nah stless you for me oo!”
Caro: “ I tlust you, Peace missionaries!” They both giggle, “hope she is okay?”
Kalu: “we are hoping so! She is in the emergency ward!”
Caro: “Herro?herro? Obimo?” she ended the call. Network was fluctuating.
Kalu entered the code to check account balance as Caro called back. It was clear.
Kalu: “N’obi, can you hear me?”
Caro: “Yes, sweet!” Kalu smiled, “Mma call me. Ask for forgiveness. Told her I don’t have any problem at all!” Kalu felt tears flush into the eyes. Wasn’t Caro an angel? He expected she’d hold a grudge against his mother but on the contrary. That day,she sent two thousand naira recharge unit to Mma Kalu.
They spoke at length.
The girl Peter was with ran out as Aunty Amarachi opened the door,
Aunty Amarachi: “Pet,on our matrimonial bed!” the girl brushed pass her.,
Aunty Amarachi couldn’t go after her. The truth was she didn’t know what to do. Peter stood up bare,unremorseful, gave her an angry gaze, took a towel and tied,
Peter: “Lemme go and wash up!”he said in arrogance as she stood in his way.
Aunty Amarachi: “Pet, do you have conscience at all? I caught you with a small girlon our matrimonial bed and you aren’t even showing remorseful about it!”
Peter: “My friend, lemme pass!” she refused getting off and he pushed her to the ground. She stood up in an attempt to fight, sent her to the ground and began to punch her. No one came to her rescue as she cried and screamed. Having dealt with her to his satisfaction, he stood and made for the bathroom, “You’d better go for HIV test!” he banged the bathroom door.
With pains she held her face crying,
Aunty Amarachi: “Caro! Caro!! I’m sorry! I pray you forgive me!” she cried.
Iya Kpati and Ene rushed came into the ward where Mama Chinedu had being transferred to. She felt better.Kalu,Pastor and the rest were beside her. Precious came with them.
Iya Kpati: “Ore mi. My friend,Mama Shinedu. Forgifing me! Iyam sorry!”she knelt beside her,the other patients in the room glared at them. Mama Chinedu was in tears too.
Pastor: “It’s a good thing before the Lord tha you guys have decided to make peace,” he said as they hug each other. Tears gathered in everyone’s eyes.
Tanko picked up his phone and dialed a contact “Perle” which meant pearl in French,
Tanko: “I’ll be waiting for you 10: 30! And remember Blue Ivy,Ikeja is the place, “ he dropped from the car holding a red rose to the driver,he said, “Go pick her!hurry, please!”
Kalu stepped out to call Caro, the call was picked but he didn’t hear her say a word,
Kalu: “Hello! Hello!!”
The next thing he heard was a male voice, “Good evening, madam. He said I should come pick you! He is waiting for you!” with a smile Caro wearing a long armless dress sat at the back.
Caro: “I’ve been waiting for his call! Hope he’s fine?”the driver smiled and started the engine.
Kalu: “You’ve been waiting for who?” Caro! Caro!! it made a sound and tripped off.
