the sound of her laugh started getting louder and louder by the minute, I was scared I didn’t know what to do, my mind started beating very fast like someone in the midst of death, am I in the midst of death? Of course I am.
I stood up quickly, there’s no way to see road because everywhere is dark no thanks to Adaeze, I manage to locate my small bag, I lost the big one on the scene of the accident but I manage to collect the small hand bag, I brought out my small Nokia touch from it and switch the touch, as I point it to the direction of the door I saw Adaeze, standing in the door with a white gown, I was scared and I shouted “Jesus” falling back on the bed, I was shaking because there is no one here to help me now that Mercy is gone, there is breeze everywhere as she started walking closer to me.
“Why did you kill our child” she ask as she draw nearer to me while I lay in bed shaking heavily.
“A… da… eze, am so…. rry but I cannot let another evil incarnate into this word” I said with my shaking voice.
“You cannot? It was your decision to make” she shouted and then the force of her shout destroyed the glasses on the window, she was angry and I can feel it, who wouldn’t be?
“Am sorry Adaeze, I know it was painful killing your child, but there was no other choice, see what you are doing to me because of the mistake I made with Adanna”
“Don’t mention her name” she said with her red eyes, “I helped you kill her because I thought we could get along, but it seems am regretting that decision now, you have neglected me in the sense that you have the guts to kill our baby, I won’t rest until I kill every other person you love” she said with anger.
“Please, punish me and leave my people out of this, I will do any thing you want” I said.
“There’s nothing else I want from you, you have proven to me that we cannot live together in peace, now I will make you suffer and suffer and suffer, you will know no peace and you will live your live regretting all the things you have done, and you will be alone because you will never find love again, you wont be able to feed like before and now you shall only drink blood to survive, the sun shall be your enemy and only the moon shall be your friend” she said and walk to me, she took one of the shattered glass from the ground and use it to cut my hand, she lick the blood and then something strange entered my body, all my bone started breaking like someone hit by train, I screamed very loud.
“Hello sir, what is it?” I opened my eyes and saw one nurse trying to calm me down, I look around no shattered glasses
“Where is she?” I ask.
“Where is who” the nurse replied looking around.
Everything seem normal, but when I look at my palm I saw a strange mark, the cross of Christ but its upside down, what does it mean?
I don’t know the meaning of the mark but it doesn’t seem to hurt, I will go show it to my pastor when I get to Aba, I took my small bag and thank to the nurse for her care, I left the hospital and took a bus in Onitsha back to Aba.
I got to MCC road in Aba and then I came down, I walk my way to number 9 MCC road, where I live, the moment I open my door I walk straight to bed to sleep because am very weak, It looks like am having fever because my head is boiling, I thought I needed some rest that’s why so I slept, I woke up around seven in the evening, the headache became worse, i stand up from bed and took some money, I went out to buy headache and fever medicine, I return home and took the drugs but it didn’t stop, my head is spinning and I don’t know what’s wrong, I went out again to calabar kitchen in MCC road there, I bought soup and garri and when I get home I ate them very fast because I was hungry, after eating my stomach started making some kind of noise and before I know it I vomited everything I ate, what’s wrong with me? I just don’t know.
