“Doctor what are you trying to tell me “? Me Louis asked adjusting his eye glass to have a clear view of the young doctor.
“Sir we tried our best but we lost him ” he said shaking his head negatively and seriously Desmond had loose so much blood and he was just left work some percentage of survival.
“Wait you mean the guy is dead “? He asked again to be sure and the doctor nodded his head in a yes gesture
“No no! No! It can’t be ” Mr Louis said walking up and down thinking of what to do next. It’s his son called Raymond that got him into this big mess because if he hadn’t committed any crime he would been in the office doing his work and he would have not killed the guy.
“Doctor please do anything you can,i promise you I will pay you any money you require but please try and save the guy for me” Mr Louis pleaded
“Let’s see what’s going to happen
🏥 🏥 DESMOND’S WARD 🏥 🏥
Desmond was lying lifeless as he was already covered wort white long sheet that only feet were seen. He was covered and about to be taken to the mortuary department when the doctor entered again for the second time, he looked at the machines that was connected to his body from head for toe. It was beeping and some were even showing red lights as it kept making some sounds. Doctor Pius looked at Desmond for the last time thinking if there’s a way to bring him back to life but he was trusting in God for a miracle.
“Get me my gloves ” he said to the nearby nurse who stood by him with all the necessary things he required which was later brought to him.
With immediate effect he began doing what he thinks that was the best idea to bring the young man back to life and it was fruitless and meaningless because Desmond was not responding to it. He tried and tried and tried but the results still remains negative, meanwhile Mr Louis was walking up and down not knowing who to call and what to do at that instant. His long black tie, he loosed it and then relaxed on the e visitor’s chair before he doze off again to a deep slumber.
It was already 10:00pm as all the doctor’s efforts went in vain, he took off the gloves, wash his hands and then changed into his other clothes
“Cover him ” he ordered and walked away
Mike couldn’t bear it anymore wondering where Desmond was, his instincts was telling him that all is not going on well but he needed confirmation before, earlier a girl picked Desmond’s called telling that he misplaced his phone in their noise without telling him the secret. Her voice said it all that things are not going on well worth Desmond or does it mean that I’m over thinking of the guy?
“let’s see what tomorrow brings ” he said and covered himself with the duvet and then switched off the lights that illuminated the building before sleeping off to the land of the unknown.
The cops were not ready to let the two criminals to escaped, they were still after them just to make are they are brought to justice, Raymond and arrow had been running without rest. The decided to relax after making sure that the cops are out of sight, just then the cops appeared again form nowhere, this time around they were many in number and they came with police officers more than how they were before. Raymond and arrow were still on their tracks without knowing where they were going until Raymond heard a loud scream loud to him and turn to see arrow going down into a long and thorn cliff which his echoe filled the bush they were running it was just like a first because of the presence in the bush leaving only Raymond alone In the forest to continue the cops were still after him.
“Arrow! ” he called loudly but only the repeatation of his echoed that filled the forest, he look up to the sky and looking at the moon he made a promise to God
“Father Lord please I beg of you, if you allow me to survive this one, I’m going to serve you eternally ” he lamented looking at the moon and then looked down back to the ground.
“Desmond please talk to me na, what’s the problem “? Mike said stretching his hands to Desmond for a handshake, he ignored it and adjusted backwards with tears in his eyes and blood all over his mouth, he kept walking backwards
“Desmond what’s this na? Please let’s get out of here now before his zay “Mike said but Desmond didn’t mind as he kept going backwards and this time around blood started coming out of his mouth.
“I’m sorry Mike, we can’t be together anymore ” he said letting the tears fall
“Pleases Desmond don’t say a thing like that. Are you possesed or you are drunk “? Mike asked again
“No I’m not Mike. Goodbye my best friend and say goodbye to everyone ” Desmond said and disappeared and Mike shouted in alert adjusting backwards.
“Nooooo! Mike shouted waking up from sleep as the scary night mare kept reflecting in his memory, he checked his time to see 1:27am. How fear increased the more as he sat on the bed, thinking of the dream h3 just had, he wasn’t ready to loose someone especially someone as special as Desmond.
“Oh lord please let it nor be so, tg3 guy had suffered a lot please help him out ” he lamented though he don’t know how to pray but he believes in prayer as he carried his phone to call Desmond number again and it was picked up on the second trial
“Hello miss, please sorry to disturb where can I get the phone tomorrow morning “? Mike asked
“Come to waterline street, you will see me there”she,said on the phone
“And I guess you are Patricia he always tells me about “? He asked and they both giggled forgetting their sorrows.
“Till tomorrow ” he said and ended the call praying that Desmonds should be save for him because he knew he had suffered a lot in terms of school stuffshe, shook his head and laid down sleeping.
*******7:00m was, already and Mike dressed to visit Patricia I’m the house so, as to gain the truth from her.
