“Let me go!”
I struggled as they reach for me, thank goodness David showed up..he swiftly pushed his way thru them and landed his fist on one of them..he staggered back and attempted to react but a security passed by
“Quickly, let them go”
The Spanish witch said and hurried off with her hoodlums
“Are you OK?”
David rushed to me and picked me up in his arms..
“I’m OK, I’m OK..put me down”
Well I was really thinking I could make use of my right leg..
I screamed in pain, I couldn’t stand on my feet..oh no!
David caught me before I lost balance..vodka had been trying to revive Jovita..
“Bukky the last stage of the competition starts with 30minutes, Jovita can’t March In this state”
David held his forehead and paced round the room
“You should never have got yourself into this mess..simply stay out of this woman’s way, she is dangerous, Vodka didn’t you tell her?!”
I couldn’t believe David would say that..
“Please get me a first aid”
I pleaded with vodka, within minutes she came with a health practitioner to check me..
“You’re done lady, you can’t walk with this”
David remained quiet but I knew he was burning inside
“Bukky, this last stage requires 5 sets of models to March out..myself and Jovita would complete the set, but Jovita can’t March In this state”
An uncomfortable silence stood in the room till Viktor spoke out
“So its over? This where is the end for us, like always?”
It dawn to me now..but then I wouldn’t just let this go, it isn’t over
“No, we would March out there?”
“How? We are not a complete set”
Vodka questioned back..
“Everyone changed to your sport wears, I will complete the set..”
David stopped pacing and turned to me
“I’ll pretend I didn’t hear that”
I ignored him and turned to the health practitioner
“Please rap this up..”
He attempted to protest but I wasn’t ready to hear the rubbish
He went to work..no one moved..when he was done I tried and got up and faced them
” I am not giving up, we must win this because I am not marching out for just myself, but for madam clara, and the house of Earl.. I would give my all to save the house!! Cos it’s my home..and I believe you all to do the same, because we are not just models but the what?!”
“HOUSE OF EARL!” I stood at the back and wore a canvas..God please help me out..I marched out but then I took my step carefully till I was safely behind curtains..the pains I felt was unbearable that I shed tears..
