EPISODE 14
.
.
Richard had visited Sharon that very day, and after playing and teasing each other. Richard started complaining that he was having headache and before they knew it his body started boiling hot from fever. Sharon was scared out of her wits and rushed out to buy drugs for him. Not minding that Richard told her not to go anywhere, that it was already getting late in the night.
.
She left alone, and trudged on to the nearest pharmacy in her neighborhood. On her way, she saw a huge commotion, up ahead as people were running for their life. Gunshots resounded, here and there. This was a shoot out between two conflicting confraternity. Innocent passerbys could be seen dropping on the road dead. Sharon Immediately took to her heels, as she looked for the nearest place to hide from this cult clash, before she becomes one of the cannon folders.
.
Just as she was about to run across the road, a stray bullet hit her in the arms and she fainted right away. She lay there as blood oozed out of her arm. People jumped over her in a quest to survive, not sparing her as much as a glance. She lay there sprawled on the ground, not knowing if she was alive or dead.
.
Richard had waited for Sharing for a while now, yet she was yet to come back and he became worried. Praying that nothing back happened to her. He was lamenting that he told her not to leave by that time of the night, yet she stubbornly left.
.
He was still worried, when he got a call from Sharon’s number, he picked it up Immediately and said out aloud.
“Ahhh! Sharon, what kept you this long? I have been damned worried.”
He voiced his fears.

” Ermmm! I’m sorry this is not Sharon. I actually found her unconscious on the road, she was shot and I rushed her to the hospital. Your number was the first in her call log, that was why, I called you.”
A male voice said through the phone.
.
Richard felt like he was smashed by a sledge hammer. He found this hard to believe! Why this again. She went to buy drugs for me and got shot! Ohhh! Hope this is not true. Someone should convince me that this is a lie. His mind screamed.
.
“Ok which hospital, is she admitted in?”
He said picking up his wallet immediately and got up locking Sharon’s room and the man told him.
.
Arriving at the hospital, he found Shron unconscious. The doctor, said she lost a lot of blood and needed blood transfusion. That luckily they brought her here on time or her arm would have been amputed.
Seeing Sharon unconscious, Richard felt his heart bleed. Seeing how she lay helpless ther,his heart bled. Tears filled his eyes.
“I told you to stay aware from me, all I bring is disaster. Just see you in this condition because of me. Please live well for me. I find it hard to believe that I’m not cursed. Everything keeps on pointing to that same direction. The proof is there for all to see. It hurts seeing you this way. I really have a lot to tell you. A lot fills my mind that I want to share with you. But I won’t any longer. I’m a disaster to those who care for me.”

Richard said as he lay by Sharons side in the hospital, lamenting alone and filled with endless bitterness. Why must it always be those around him? Why? Was he an abomination? Or what?
.
After staying there for more than six hours, he was urged by the doctor to go home and change over because he looked so unkempt. By then Sharon’s parents were already notified and they were already on their way.
.
He initially didn’t want to go, but because Sharon’s parents were on their way, he couldn’t stay. He felt so guilty and couldn’t just stand seeing them, as he believed he was the one that caused Sharon to be hospitalized.
.
It has been already three days and Richard had become a shadow of himself. Self guilt eating so deep into him. The guilt gnawed at his heart. He refused to pick anyone’s call including his mothers call.
.
Just then Stephen and Andrew, came knocking on his door. They had visited him because they were worried, since he hadn’t picked their calls to check if all.was well. They came in and saw him in the huge mess, he made, as he hadn’t taken his bath, brushed or eaten this three days. They were alarmed and Immediately urged him to go take his bath so, they would take him out to the eatery to eat.
