Princess scooped all the food she left for herself and served her on the dinning.

“I need fresh juice, Susan ordered.

“Now? Princess asked.

“Are you now deaf? Hurry up I want to drink that before I eat, Susan said and Princess swallowed and left to get it done.

Minutes later she came out with a jug and glass but Susan hissed.

“I don’t like this juice, don’t you have a Better fruit? Susan asked.

“Erm I don’t know your kind of fruit, Princess replied.

“In fact forget it, just give me soft drink, Susan said and Princess heaved and left to get it.

She let a scream and ran out to get help but saw the gateman opening the gate and Rachel drove in.

“Fine you came just in time, I don’t know what’s wrong with your mother, Princess quickly said to her.

“What did you do to my mother! Rachel shouted and ran in with her……………

Desmond arrived at the hospital and Rachel ran to him which he held her, “whats wrong? He asked.

“Please help me ask your wife the kind of food she gave my mother o, please ask her for me o, Rachel cried.

“What are you saying? Has the doctor said anything about her condition yet? Princess asked.

“You tell me why my mother should suddenly slump while eating your food, Rachel said and the doctor came out which they went to him.

“Doctor how is my mother? Rachel asked.

“I’m sorry, we tried our best, the doctor replied.

“I don’t understand, what best are you talking about? Please what happened to her! Rachel shouted and fell on him.

“I don’t understand, what’s the cause of the sudden death? Desmond asked.

“Its suspected food poisoning, the poison is a kind I’ve never seen before. The effect is too Dangerous within minutes her liver was already rotting, there was nothing we could do to save her. We will be taking some samples from her stomach to examine the kind of poison it is, the doctor replied.

“Hey! I am finished o! Rachel shouted while crying.

“I don’t understand honey, how was she poisoned? Desmond turned to Princess who was speechless already.

“I..i..I can’t explain what is going on here. Yes she was eating the food I served her, but its the same food I dished for you this morning and you’re still alive. I don’t understand, Princess said almost crying..

“Don’t you dare shed those crocodile tears here after what you’ve done, who was with you in that house? Or is it me that poisoned the food? What wrong did she ever do to you nah! Rachel shouted.

“This must be a very big misunderstanding, the food left was for me because I know you won’t eat it. Would I have poisoned my own food? Princess asked.

“Yes because you’re insane! Ever since I came into the picture you’ve been acting strangely yes or no? You starve yourself don’t you? Rachel asked.

“Please calm down we’ll get to the bottom of this, Desmond came in.

“No way you won’t because she’s your Darling wife. My mom’s death must be revenged, I won’t let this go! Rachel said.

“Can you just calm down please, we can’t jump into conclusion now this case is not investigated. She may have eaten this poison somewhere……

….. “Go ahead and cover up for your wife crimes, bring up justifications to clear her out of this, Rachel cut in.

“No that’s not what I’m saying, if truly the poison is from my wife food, then i have no choice than to hand her over to the law, Desmond said and Princess gasped.

“I have nothing to do with this please, why can’t anyone believe me? Princess said in tears and Rachel made a call immediately.

“What are you doing? Desmond asked.

“I want this woman behind bars till that food gets tested. And if she turns out to be the murderer, sorry for you, Rachel replied……………..
