Sweetness is not always for long, it will get to a time when it will become bitter, even if not bitter, it will become tasteless.

Life doesn’t offer good things for long without trying to introduce a little bit of bitterness.

But millennium years worth of sweetness might not be able justify a day of bitterness, just like Banag known as Job on earth, he also lost all the sweetness he had to just a day bitterness.

Like I heard someone said, “just a day can change a human’s life”.

But all that happened to Ranking in a day, could it also be a way of preparing him for something greater like Job.

Well, I don’t know, only the supreme knows what he’s thinking, and if another person will also know what the supreme one is thinking, then it would be the greater one.

Seeing Ranking languishing in pain made me felt sad, I wished I could do something to help him but there was nothing I could do , like I said before, when FATE is working, I don’t have the ability to intercept its mission, all what I could intercept has already being recorded so by Fate.

And I also knew it wasn’t going to be easy for me, Nina was in a indefinite coma and what do you all think will happen to me the guardian who is not allow to leave her side?

I will also be trapped inside the hospital with her and I don’t think the experience is going to be a pleasant one.

So, the calamity of that day caught everyone wrapped up in it ,not even excluding me.

But I think Tabitha would be the one to feel the calamity most, she lost her mom, and I was sure that event will lead to the revelation of all that was placed in the dark.

What does fate has in store by making all those events happen in just a single day?

Well I don’t know but we’ll all know as my story goes on.


Ranking couldn’t believe that everything happened just in a day, as he was about to get to his car, he saw an ambulance sped passed him and halt just a little distance from him.

The medical officer inside it quickly wheeled out a stretcher out of the ambulance and someone who looked familiar followed the stretcher wailing.

” Yemi ” Ranking said inaudibly

He ran towards them and intercepted the stretcher from moving forward

He moved to the side of the stretcher and looked at the person on the stretcher with oxygen fixed to her mouth.

On recognizing that the occupant of the stretcher was his daughter, he suddenly felt dizzy and staggered back a bit, I knew he was going to fall and him falling means he’s going to hit his head on the floor which can lead to concussion or at worse, his death, fate or no fate, I couldn’t watch the only person who Tabitha has to die, it was already a mess as it was, and I wasn’t going to stand and watch the mess compound bigger .

I made the medical officer close to him lose his balance and he fell down and Ranking fell on top of him. It was all too fast for anyone to notice anything.

He was quickly rushed to a ward and it wasn’t a big deal waking him by the doctor.

On waking up, he rushed out of the ward removing all the intravenous drip attached to his wrist.

Nina smiled as Tabitha’s car drove out of her house facade and the gate man locked the gate.

When she got back inside, she was suddenly hungry again and couldn’t see her mom inside the sitting room, she went to the kitchen to see if the food was still remaining, she smile as she saw a plate filled with fried rice and chicken on a tray, she knew at once that it was Tabitha’s food that she didn’t eat .

She took it happily and headed to the sitting room,she sat on a divan and started eating the food happily as she watched a cartoon series on their flat screen TV titled sofia the first.

She didn’t eat up to half of the food in her plate when she felt that she was already full.

She ate the meat and took the leftover to the kitchen, while she head back to the sitting room to continue watching the cartoon.

After 15 minutes ,she felt a severe pain in her stomach and screamed, her mother rushed out of her room and met her on the floor groaning in pain.

When she saw her in pain, that was when she remembered that she forgot to dispose the poisoned food she prepared for Tabitha.

She quickly ran back to her room to get the antidote for the poison, tho she knew it was already late but she was still going to take her chance, the poison was very dangerous, it will take its time weakening all the body immunity and organs,it’s when it’s venom has gone beyond control in the body that the person who was poisoned with it will start feeling the pain.

She quickly gave her the antidote and dialed the emergency number of Life First Memorial Hospital because she knew it was dangerous to drive in the state she was and she completely forgot that she has a driver.
