That was what i heard while I was jerking back to

life. I looked around and saw myself on a hospital


“Pele onihaxy, sorry dear!!!” That was what I heard

from betty as she held my hands. Betty and a nurse

were the only people with me. The nurse later left

and I was alone with betty.

BETTY: ***rubbing my head and chest*** pele dear.

ME:***looking into her eyes**, what happened to


BETTY: you fainted for about 40 minutes.

ME: really?

BETTY: yes dear. Thank God you are awake now.

Aunty Bimpe said you donated blood to daniella.

Thanks so much dear.

ME: you are welcome.

BETTY: but wait onihaxy, how did you get here?, how

did you know that daniella was admitted here.

ME: I tried calling your line this morning and it was

picked by bimpe, she said there was an emergency

and that daniella fell off the stairs, so I rushed down

here. On getting to the hospital, I heard she needed

blood so I volunteered to donate.

BETTY: that’s very kind of you, thanks so much

honey **kissed me***

ME: where is bimpe? how is daniella?.

BETTY: well, daniella is recovering. Aunty bimpe and

my brother are with her in her ward.

ME: you mean your brother is around?

BETTY: yes, about 10 minutes ago.

ME: ok.

BETTY: how about tomorrow’s test and interview, will

you still be able to attend it?

ME: why not?, I’m fit and strong now.

BETTY: that’s my baby.

**still discussing and the door opens**

BETTY: **looked at the person who entered**** hi

ME: you are welcome sir.

BETTY: where is Aunty Bimpe?

HENRY: she is with daniella.

BETTY: when will daniella be discharged?

HENRY: the doctor said in 2 to 3 days time.

ME: eeyah. May God heal her

HENRY and BETTY: amen oooo.

HENRY: betty, you can go home with bimpe, I will

stay here over the night with daniella.

BETTY: I’m not going anywhere. I’m staying too.

ME: ***turned to Henry***, I won’t be able to stay sir,

I have an appointment tomorrow morning and I want

to go home and prepare for it.

HENRY: no problem bro, thanks so much.

**the door opened and bimpe entered**

BIMPE: onihaxy!!!, I’m happy you are awake now.

BIMPE: ok, in that case, I will drive you and drop you

yourself so much.

HENRY: very nice idea sweetheart, very thoughtful of


BeTTY: ****looked uncomfortable****

HENRY: mr onihaxy, when next are wee seeing you?.

ME: can’t say, maybe tomorrow.

HENRY: we need to have a dinner together when we

all return home, and we have one or two things to

discuss. **looked into bimpe’s eye and smiled***

ME: ok sir..

Henry returned to daniella’s ward, betty, bimpe and I

walked out of the hospital to the car park. I could

read clearly the mood on betty’s face. She wasn’t

just comfortable.

“Is this girl suspicious of something?”

I hugged her and we said we would chat on phone. I

opened the side door of bimpe’s car and we drove


BIMPE: onihaxy, thanks so much for today, I never

believed that you can be nice to me after all the

things I put you through.

ME: you are welcome.

BIMPE: **parked after driving for some minutes**

ME: what’s wrong, is the car faulty?

BIMPE: no, I stopped it and parked.

ME: why?, what happened?.

BIMPE: I want us to discuss a very serious issue.

ME: ok, what is it?

BIMPE: you know things could be complicated here if

we are not careful.

ME: I don’t understand.

BIMPE: you know I love my husband and he loves me


ME: ok,

BIMPE: the same way you love betty so much and

she also loves you too.

ME: ok,

BiMPE: if this secret about daniella should leak out,

we will all be in trouble, the four of us. And things

will never be the same.

ME: and who is going to leak it?. You or I?.

BIMPE: I can never leak such secret. I have my

marriage to protect. But I don’t trust you onihaxy.

Not now that revenge is written on your face.

ME: I’m not going to leak anything also.

BIMPE: I want to be rest assured. So I want us to do

something today.

ME: and what is it?

BIMPE: I want us to take an oath that our mouth will

forever be shut on this issue.

ME: what!!!!!!, oath
