My mum was rushed into the hospital. After crying for many hours, I checked through the window and saw that it was morning. I got up, brushed my teeth and changed my cloth.
I got to our kitchen and opened the pot. Thank God there was a little left over rice inside of it. I quickly warmed it while I prepare pap for my dad.
As I prepared the pap, I poured it inside a cup and got to my dad’s room. He was still sleeping. I have to wait till he was partially awake.
I helped him in brushing his teeth and then I gave him the pap to drink which he drank only a little of it.
He looked around and couldn’t find my mum. He wanted to ask about her but he couldn’t speak. I knew that from his facial expression and body language.
I didn’t want to tell him about the predicament of my mum so I expertly dodged the question on his mind. When he was through with the pap, he drifted back to sleep.
Me: oh God!!
I rushed to the sitting room where I ate my little rice before I ran down to the hospital.
Some of the neighbours have left, just like two or three that was remaining. I greeted them and they told me that the doctor wanted to see me.
They have to direct me to his office because I haven’t been to this hospital before.
I entered inside the office and saw a middle aged man dressed in a white lab coat sitted at the other side of the table.
Tears came down from my eyes. This was because I wanted to be a doctor just like him but how is that going to be possible again?
Me: good morning sir!
I said and bowed a little
Doctor: *clears throat* good morning boy. Take a seat. I heard that it was your mother that was rushed into this hospital the previous night?
Me: *sitting down* yes sir, you are right.
Doctor: If I may ask where is your dad.
Me: **breathed down, I took time to tell him all about myself and my family. The present predicament of my dad and everything**
Doctor: what a pity. Don’t you have any uncle.
Me: yes I don’t. The only one I have has gone to the city with his family and every means of contacting him is impossible.
Doctor: what of any other uncle in the village?
Me: no, I don’t have.
he said with remorse. Don’t blame me. There is no need of telling him about Mazi Uche because I can bet my life that Mazi Uche won’t help us.
Someone that couldn’t provide when his younger brother was seriously sick. How much more his brother’s wife?
Doctor: ok, just know we will do all our best. For now, you can go back home.
Me: thank you doctor.
Doctor: you are welcome.
On my way home. I have this mindset that Mazi Uche was behind all our present predicament. I mean we know he hated our family.
Everytime he is informed about any marriage plan coming up on chioma, the marriage will be scattered. I always sense a dark power lurking around him but there is nothing I can do.

I started running faster. Before I could turn back, he has gotten my mum. Since I wasn’t concentrating on the road, I fell down.
He came close to me and I recognized him, MAZI UCHE. he raised the cutlass up and…………………………. ………………………………………………………………
