Story: The Changed Season 1

5 years ago

The room was dimly lit up by a 60watts bulb. Apparently, the voltage is poor. No windows, just a door and a fan turning slowly and making a creaky sound. The room is spacious and empty apart from a chair and a table with a bag on it and they are a few meters far from the door. At the far end opposite the table is where a young woman about 31yrs old was tied. She’s fair skinned and even with the weary look she wears on her sleepy face, she’s extremely beautiful. She’s 5’7 wearing a well woven hair.

She woke up with a start. She tried to digest her situation. She’s been tied to something she just can’t fathom what. Head down, hands tied behind her back and legs tied with a metal, though she couldn’t see it, she could feel the coldness of the steel. She tried to recall last night happenings, but it was a blur. Her situation is now obvious, she had been napped! By whom and for what reason, she’d have to wait to find out but she dares not try to wait. She must find a way out. She pulled at the chains but nothing happened. She wanted to scream but kicked against it after a second thought. She kept pulling till she became weak, she gave in to tears.
“Oh God save me” she cried silently

Just then the door opened slowly and from his appearance he could easily be named a doctor. A gold rimmed spectacle hung from his bulgy eyes, he wore a pair of hand gloves on each hand and a white lab coat with white shoes to match. He’s 5’2 and chocolate skinned. He carries no beard and he’s bald.

“Glad you’re awake Angela, I’m afraid i have to commence work now”

“What do you mean by commence work?” She asked tearfully “who are you and what am i doing here?”

The doctor said nothing but walked close to her and removed his spectacles thereby revealing a pair of wide gray eyes. He kept staring at Angela who kept crying and trying to make a bargain.

“You want money? Just name your price, anything you want you’ll get it please just let me go” she continued

The Doctor smiled but kept staring at her with his eyes and they show no form of pity in them. So cold was the stare that Angela was forced to keep shut.

The doctor punched her and she passed out

3 Days Earlier
“Pastor, he just won’t stop, I’ve done everything you asked me to. Everyday he comes home with a new girl” Angela explained into the phone.

“Yes, his dad is coming too. Alright Sir. I’ll be expecting you”
She sighed and turned as she heard the door bell ring. Her father in law has probably arrived. Apart from the facial resemblance they both bore the man is the opposite of his son in terms of characters. Why his son is an heavy drunk, he’s reserved and barely sips a full glass even when at occasions. He’s sturdily built with handsome features which would have faded had he not been a rich man. He carries a cute smile and its hard to tell if he’s angry or not.

Angela opened the door after the second ring, and lo! She came face to face with her husband and another girlfriend.

“No John, I’ve had enough!” She said And she the door.

“Dam you darn know what will happen when i get in so save yourself some beating barren ho!” John replied

“Go away dog! And take that filthy thing with you!”

“You dare call my girlfriend thing!?” John yelled back angrily and dashed for the door and broke it open.
Angela ran into her room but it was too late, John was there before she could even think of closing the door. He pushed her on the bed and made to punch her. She pushed him backward and dashed out of the house only to run into the safe hands of her ever smiling father in-law.

“John” he called calmly, ” is this how you treat your wife? And who is this thing with pancake and lipstick dabbed over her face like a masquerade? Sorry sister but please this is another woman’s home and you are not welcomed, kindly walk away and never come back”

John’s girlfriend started walking away but not after getting the nod from John who was taken aback by his Dad’s sudden appearance. What had brought the old fool here? He wondered. If Angela has something to do with this she’s going to pay.

Mr Samuel walked inside still holding Angela and sat down. “John come and sit and start talking” he said. If he was angry, then he really didn’t show it.

He, Mr Samuel, had tried to instill discipline in his son but to no avail. His son increasing love for prostitutes is flabbergasting and totally unacceptable for anyone who must bare his name and inherit his companies.

John kept standing and remained quiet. His mind was racing fast and his options are few. He has to ignore this mans question without incurring his wrath. He was jolted back from his reverie by the ringing bell.

“Who’s there!?” He bellowed

Angela got up, only because she knew it was her pastor. Oh God, let everything be settled today, she prayed inwardly.

“Hey, good afternoon Sir. You are right on time” she said smiling.

“May the peace of the Lord be in this house” the man of God said as he walked in. He shook hands with Mr Samuel but John refused his handshake. The pastor, dressed in a gray suit and tie, is in his mid forties. Fair skinned with tribal marks.

He was offered a sit opposite Mr Samuel.
He cleared his throat and began “judging from the look of things, it seems we already know our mission here.

John, your wife here, has been complaining that……”

“You are a jobless fool! Why can’t you just mind your church or is she your wife?” John interrupted rudely. Turning to his father he said “look dad, I’m no longer a baby, its high time you too start minding your business” with that said he walked out slamming the door as he went.

Mr Samuel didn’t look surprised, he just got up and started heading for the door. “Angela, see me tomorrow please” and he left just as quietly as he came.

Angela bursts into tears and the Pastor tried to console her and he let her weep on his shoulder. “It will be alright” he kept saying.

Then John walked in just in time to see his wife weeping on the Pastor’s shoulders
