“Hello Miss”. I said as Daphne came to me.
“Hi Davis, you made the right decision”. She said and I shook my head negatively. “She’s still my mother”. I said.
“But she wanted to sell you off”. Daphne reminded and I nodded.
“I know, it’s possible she said it out of anger, I’m feeling bad, can I see her in the cell?”. I asked.
“No, Nuella didn’t ask me to take you anywhere other than the hospital”. She said. “Please Daphne, please, I want to see my mom”. I pleaded and she sighed.
“Only on the condition that you won’t waste time, I don’t want Nuella to sack meif she finds out I disobeyed her and took you to go and see your mom”. She said and Ihugged.
“Doctor, I heard the news”. I said running to him.
“Yes”. He began. “It’s a miracle, Raymond is now conscious”. He said and I smiled.
“Wow, that’s great news, I’ll take care of him”. I said.
“Don’t remind him about the beating given to him by the prisoner”. He said and I nodded.
I entered his ward and he smiled when he saw me. “Raymond”. I called out and he nodded.
“Nuella, it’s over right, Jeanne is gone right?”. He asked and I nodded. “Yes from our lives”. I replied.
“It was like a nightmare, I think I’m dreaming”. He said and I chuckled. “No, you’re not”. I replied.
“Where’s Davis?”. He asked.
“Davis is on his way here”. I replied and smiled.
My stomach began to ache me and I ran into the hospital’s toilet and vomited. I was vomiting as a result of stress. Perhaps.
“I’m not used to all these criminal lifestyle”. I said to Rebecca who laughed. “Me too”. She replied.
“I can’t believe I was betrayed by my only son”. I said and she smiled.
“You were also wrong, do you know why I’m here, I killed all my husband’s family, I killed his rude mother first, then his sister and lastly his brother”. She said and laughed.
“I wish to have your kind of mine, I’ve not killed before but I wish to do so”. I said. “Who do you wish to kill?”. She asked and I grinned.
“Nuella”. I replied. “Who’s she?”. She asked.
“I’m suspecting she might marry Raymond and I’ll kill them on their wedding day”. I said.
“How will you kill them, you can’t escape from here”. She said and I laughed.
“I’ll get my things done smoothly and Nuella would be the first person I’ll kill and that Davis, I’m going to make him pay”. I said and laughed as the guard opened the cell.
“Jeanne, someone’s here to see you”. He said and carried me outside the cell. I saw the teary face of Davis and I laughed.
“You’ve come to mock me right?”. I asked and laughed. “You’ve come to mock your own mother, the one who gave birth to you, I don’t think your conscience ever worked, I carried you for nine months”. I said and started crying.
“I’m sorry Mom”. He said.
“Sorry?”. I asked with ridicule. “Dear Davis, you decided to join Nuella and bring me down, you teamed up with someone who’s not your mother”. I said.
“And you wanted to sell me off?”. I asked her. “You wanted to sell me, your only child, you called me a bastard, you thought I was foolish right, no, I played you to your own game and I won, all evidences have proved you guilty, my dad won’t be in the hospital if not for you.” He said and I slapped him
“Don’t talk back at me, I’m still your mother”. I said.
“Mother?”. He asked. “A mother who wants to sell her own son, if evil was a person, it would have taken your form”. He said and ran out.
“Davis, Davis”. I called out and sank to the floor when he didn’t answer me. Nuella! I’ll kill you
“Are you okay?”. Daphne asked me. “I am”. I replied.
“It must be hard for you, your mom is in prison”. She said and I nodded.
“She is no longer my mom”. I said with tears gathered in my eyes. “What?”. She asked shocked
“She seized being my mom since the day she wanted to sell me. She is not my mom”. I replied and smiled.
“Are you sure about this? I”
I cut in immediately. “Yes, I’m sure I made the right decision”. I replied and cleaned my tears.
