LETTER TO MY GIRLFRIEND
(Clash of love)
A Story Written By Bright Daniel
The wedding did not only end dramatically but also pathetically. Mr and Mrs Williams left to the hospital after Mr Josh disappeared, probably to the police station.
However, at the office of Mr Randy, he sat on his rotating chair making simple harmonic motion with a phone on his ear. He wore a black suit with a white tie as he talked to his wife on phone.
“Rita, how are you over there?”
“Please, I’m coming back tomorrow” Rita said.
“Okay, but make sure you conclude every business transaction before coming back”
“I have done that already”
“How’s my daughter, Agatha doing? She isn’t picking up my calls. What’s going on?”
“She’s fine, maybe she isn’t close to her phone”
“Alright, see you tomorrow”
“Safe journey” Mr Randy ended the call still making SHM with the chair. Then he began to think of how Rita will feel to know that Mary had found him and most especially, when she will see her son, Mr Randy’s son, Nath living with them. “I hope she’ll understand” Mr Randy concluded in thought.
Back to the hospital, Nath and Brano were already being taken care of by doctors and nurses. While Agatha, Miracle, Joyce and Cynthia waited patiently at the reception as the doctors remove the bullets and finally stitche them up wounds. Miracle and Joyce sat opposite Cynthia and Agatha with all their hands folded. Tears could still be seen in Joyce’s eyes because she was emotional than others. She looked up to see Cynthia staring at her but inverted her eyes.
“Is okay nah, he will be fine” Miracle consoled her.
“Yes, i believe so” she dried her tears.
Meanwhile, Agatha stared at a fixt point thinking about Brano. She couldn’t believe what he did. “How can he.. how can he just risk his life to save mine? God!” she thought. Just then her phone rang.
“Agatha, where have you been leaving your phone?” Mr Randy, her father asked on the phone.
“I’m sorry, Daddy”
“Your mother has been calling you”
“That’s because i wasn’t in the rightful position to answer her call”
“Why? where are you? What happened?”
“Daddy, Nath.. Nath.. has.. hum.. he has been.. shot” Agatha stammered and glanced at Cynthia.
“What?!” Mr Randy stood up. “Where is my son?!”
“Daddy, we are in Genera Hospital” the line went dead.
Few minutes latter, the doctor came out and all rushed to him except Agatha who slowly walked to him standing behind the girls.
“Doctor, how is he?” Cynthia and Joyce asked at the same time then glanced at each other before concentrating on the doctor again.
“They are both doing good” the doctor began with attractive smiles on his face. “Nearly for the bullet to get to his.. what’s his name again?”
“Nath!” the two girls responded at the same time again.
“Yes, the bullet nearly got to his heart but landed on his shoulder thereby damaging his scapula. But he will be other” the doctor explained.
“What about the other boy?” Agatha asked from behind with a low force.
“He was seriously injured, but i assure you that they both will be fine” the doctor kept smiling. An atom of hope could be derived from his smile when one is hopeless.
“Doctor, can we see them?” Miracle asked.
“Why not? But they are still unconscious”
Cynthia had already rushed in before the doctor could finish followed by others.
Nath laid helplessly and hopeless in bed. They could see bandages round his shoulder and blood stains.
Joyce’s tears dropped again standing very close to Cynthia.
“Is all my fault, please, forgive me” Joyce said then Cynthia glanced at her. “I guess is time to let you be which i have tried so hard but.. but..” she paused remembering the pregnancy.
“What are you talking about?” Cynthia asked her. She didn’t respond but looked at her. “What do you mean by… Are you really the cause?” Cynthia changed the question.
“What do you think?” Joyce questioned back but Cynthia kept quiet.
On the other hand, Agatha gently walked to Brano’s bed while Miracle stood at a distant. She could see him lying like a dead man with bandages round his abdomen. She gradually touched his face then withdrew her hand still finding it incredible to believe.
Just then, Mr and Mrs Williams arrived. And few minutes later Mr Randy appeared with anger.
“Who shot my son!” he roared then Agatha ran out likewise others.
“Daddy, calm down”
“No, i demand to know why my son would be shot!”
“Sir, please this is a hospital” a nurse said.
“Shut up our mouth there!!” Mr Randy rebuked her.
“Please, calm down” Mr Williams touched him on the shoulder.
“Who are those that shot my son and why?!” Mr Randy was still inquisitive.
“I’m still asking them the same question” Mr William replied then Joyce and Cynthia glanced at each other.
“Agatha, talk to me” the father demanded.
“You guys should tell us why Mento would shoot this young man” Mrs Williams voice pitched.
“It’s because of me” Cynthia and Joyce replied at the same time then everybody became confuse…
