SYDNEY took uchechi’s phone and saw that elder David was calling. He sat on the floor and felt something wet. He was ~confused at first. He looked around nobody was with water, his roof can’t be dripping water, what is he even saying? Did it rain? Where is the liquid from? H~ e summoned courage to feel the liquid with his fingers.

He checked his phone and saw numerous messages.
