Felix ambulated about in the room. Restless. Bode sat with a bottle of vodka,
Felix shot Bode an astringent look,
Felix: “Re…what? Do you know we just murdered someone? A girl who was carrying my baby?”
Bode: “Leave me outta this man! I didn’t do a thing! I only helped you out. Besides none of us planned for her death!”
Felix broke down in tears,
Felix: “I’m a murderer, man! I just ended the life of a young girl who was in love with me! […]

Veins strung out on the forehead of Israel, sweat like beads stood on the veins,
Israel: “what are you do…?”
Sarah who was standing in between them chimed in,
Sarah: “…Israel, give her a chance to explain, please!”

Sarah: “Commy!” that was what she called her,
Comfort: “Yes,ma!” she increased the volume of her phone,
Sarah: “Can you come […]

Doctor Sanusi rushed in with his medical staff,
Doctor Sanusi: “Jennifer, go and get the oxygen ready! Let’s take him to the emergency room!”
They trolled him towards the emergency room; Iya Loja followed them crying, Audu stood seeded in a position at the corridor; he couldn’t believe he was going to lose his son. Tears trickled down the left eyes. Jerry was held firm on the bed, whining, crying and tussling, as they entered the room. Iya loja’s cry pierced into […]
They continued staring at each other. It was like a nightmare to both of them. Israel didn’t know what exactly to do, Comfort was loss for words too. The nauseous feeling had disappeared. She found herself walking towards him like with a gait of a malfunctioning robot,
Israel: “Shit!” the words shot out and he banged the door almost cracking it. With the speed of light she ran after him about to open the door of his car, she held him,
The doctor took his seat and pointed at a chair, Felix sat down.
Doctor: “the test result shows your wife hit her head on an object and that is the reason for her concussion!”
Felix’s pulsating had increased, the mouth felt dried and the face looked quite pale. He would have killed her, he thought.
Felix:” Sir, how’s she? Would she make it?” the doctor looked at him and smiled,
Doctor: “Relax, she is fine. We gave her some medications.”
Felix: “Thank you,sir!” he nodded […]
Tiana: “You can go over there and wait for him!” she pointed to a bench where visitors sat, dryly she walked over there ignoring the missed calls from her boss. It was better to ignore then get the deal done than pick up with nothing to show and get tongue lashed.
She pressed silent again as the call came in. Fury would have been emitting from her boss at that moment. Those who were around her at the office bore the […]
Jane was preparing Jake for school hiding her bruised face from her son as she bent down to buckle his shoes, he bent down to look at her face,

Footsteps were heard from the room. The owner seemed to be dragging them. It was Felix.
He drew the chair of the dinning to sit,
Felix: “Can’t I have […]
Jane opened the door. It was Felix, he was drunk again,
Jane: “Baby, you’re drunk again?”
He staggered almost lurching to the ground but she held him and they were supported by the hand of the chair,
Felix: “My friend would you let go of me. I want to lie on my water bed,” pointed to the chair, she held him with all her might as he struggles to be freed.
