THE DARKEST HOUR
(Cry of an angel)
“Yes” Monica replied selecting a cloth she wanted to wear.
“It fell from you yesterday”
“Can i have it, please?”
“Sure” Monica went to the pillow she slept with then brought out the paper from under and handed it to her sister who smiled as she was collecting it. She had an idea what it was all about but didn’t bother to ask in order not to look as if she was pestering her. Therefore, she kept quiet.
Udoka put the paper inside her handbag wearing just her underwears. As the quietness lingered, their mother’s voice sounded with her eyes closed, “What’s the paper all about?”
The twins stared at each other in a stationary position. “Nothing, mother” they replied simultaneously.
“It’s for my work” Udoka added to sound more convincing but the mother remained quiet thereby making them believe that the case had ended.
Sun shone, rain fell, the wind blew and storm came and gone too. Days passed but Udoka never called David which got him worried.
At the resident of Mr Robinson, David was seen coming out from his room in a simple outfit with two phones in his hand-big and small. The image of a lion could be seen behind his T-shirt as he wanted to go out but saw his mother in the sittingroom.
“Mum” David stopped behind a couch facing his mother.
“Where are u going to?”
“To see a friend”
“A cyber cafe”
“Male or female?”
David became fed up with his mother’s inquisition. He hate it when he is been treated or monitored like a 16 year old boy which his mother had been doing, so he said, “Mum, do u have to ask me that? I can take care of myself! I am 24 for cryingout aloud!”
“You are still a baby to me no matter what” the mother replied.
“Really?” David went closer to her, he brought his face closer to her breasts and tried to touch them too.
“David!” the mother exclaimed and pushed him away. “What do you think you are doing?!”
“I want u to breast-feed me since I’m still a baby!”
“Are you out of your mind?!”
“Yes, I’m losing my mind, so the earlier you stop treating me like a baby the better for both of us” David concluded and left the room to his mother’s amazement.

At the cyber cafe, David entered and glanced at his wrist watch: 5:15pm. He looked up to see Udoka whose eyes caught with his sitting before a computer. They were no customers except one who was attended to by one of the male workers. The manager could also bee seen on a seat before a computer. David greeted them and sat very close to Udoka.
“Wecome, David” she said.
“Thank God you still remember my name” David said jokingly then Udoka smiled.
“Why not?” she said. Her eyes focused on the monitor while her hands never departed from the keyboard.
“But why have you not called me?”
“I told you i don’t have a phone”
“You should have made an effort”
“Like making use of someone’s phone”
Udoka decided not to continue the conversation, so she remained quiet. After David anticipated to hear from her but didn’t, he also decided not to bother her again. So he changed the topic-a funny one.
Udoka, giggled, laughed and smiled severally until it was 6:00pm. They were seen outside the cafe. David watched her locked the door as usually. When she turned, he stretched one of the phones to her standing at a very close range.
“What are you doing?” Udoka asked seriously.
“I want you to have it to enable me reach you at anytime” David replied.
Udoka smiled, “Sorry, i can’t take it”
“Nothing, but.. i can’t just.. take it”
“It’s from my heart. It is one of my abandoned phones. I didn’t steal it”
“Come on, David! I never said you stole them”
“Then take it!”
Divide became disappointed therefore, he gradually brought down his hand as both stared at each other in the eyes. “Can i take you out then?” he requested.
“For what?” Udoka asked.
“For a date. Please, don’t say no”
“Fine” Udoka replied as an afterthought. “I only have chance on Sundays” she added.
“Thank you” David smiled. “Meet me at this spot on Sunday evening”
“So, can i go now?” Udoka smiled too.
“Sure” David followed her to the main road.
A heavy rain poured down from the atmosphere thereby generating an unbearable coldness. David laid on his bed wishing that the rain stops due to the date he had with Udoka. He couldn’t stop thinking about her.
On the other hand, Udoka laid on the long cushion thinking if the date will still be successful or not. She also wondered how to tell her sister who laid on the bed about it. But she suddenly stood up to the bed and laid beside her at Monica’s amazement. “I want to talk to u” she said…
