Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 44
Sitting in class , I was shoving my books into my backpack when Miss Brenda walked into the classroom
Good evening! She greeted , she looked around the almost empty classroom and smiled when she met my gaze
Miss Noah! please come with me . She instructed and walked out of the class ….
Alright ma ! I stood up from my seat , sling my backpack across my shoulders and followed behind her ….
Where are we going ma ? I asked trying to make a conversation
To the studio, your manager is waiting to meet you ……
Yippee! I squealed in excitement and she laughed……..
Entering the studio, a young woman on red gown was seated at a corner
Lucia! this is Candace Noah. Miss Brenda introduced
Who wouldn’t know the girl with the angelic voice? she smiled and I blushed
hi ma’am! I greeted
hi Candace, how are you? She smiled…. it is nice meeting you
Same here . I smiled
I will leave you both to get to know each other better . Miss Brenda informed
She smiled at me before taking her leave
So what next step do you plan on taking? I mean when do you plan on recording a solo? Lucia started
I can’t say for now . I shrug
Do you have any composed song? She continued
Yes, but I don’t know if it will be okay for the solo
What type of song is that?
It is a k- pop. I replied and she nodded
Good! Let me hear you sing
Is it now? I mean it is getting late . I queried
Just the chorus . She insisted and I sighed
I picked a violin from a chair beside her, I tuned it and began singing
I can’t tell what Is happening
You came to me just like a dream
Do you hear me calling?
Just close your eyes with me
Just like wind you blow me away ……..
Wow! She applauded when I was done singing
How is it? I asked staring at her
It is beautiful! I love both the song and your voice. She praised
Thanks so much
We just have to work on some notes to make it perfect
She glanced at her wristwatch
Erm … Let’s meet here after your morning class tomorrow, if that is okay by you?
Of course it is ma. I agreed and she smiled
It is Nice working with you Candace . She stretched forth her hand for a handshake
Same here ma. I took her hands into mind and shook it
Bye ma. I bade and scurried out of the studio……
It was a bit dark when I got to the taxi station
I glanced at my wristwatch, it was 20:00
Oh what will I do? there was no sign of any taxi coming by
I brought out my phone and was about dialling Chase number when I heard the sound of a car approaching
Is it a taxi or a private car? I wondered as I waited for the car to get nearer and when it did , I noticed it was a black sport car ….
I was Surprised when the car pulled up in front of me
Who is this? I wondered
Candy! a hoarse voice called winding down the window
I tilted my head to take a closer look and widened my eyes in surprise when I met the gaze of Nick
Nick! I called
Get in. he instructed and I did
he started the car and drove off without sparing me a glance
What is wrong with him? I stared at him, his eyes were red and kinda looked dull
Has he been crying? I wondered
Nick! I called softly and he glanced at me
What is wrong? I asked with concern
Nothing. he grunted and his breath smelt alcohol
he must be really hurt . I thought within
You can talk to me , I am your sister. I assured him
he stared at me for a while and sighed
It is my mother
What happened to her?
She chose her lover over me . he bit his lips
I stared at him not knowing what to say
What kind of mother would choose a lover over her child? only a stupid one . I thought within
So why are you just leaving school by this time? he suddenly asked
My manager delayed me . I informed and he smiled
I am happy for you sis
We soon got to my house and he parked in front
Good night sis! he bade
Won’t you come in? I asked and he shook his head
It is already late
You can stay over for the night.. I mean it is your home also
I know , but I need to get going … I will come check on you all later
Alright! I opened the car door and alighted
Good bye bro! I waved and he nodded before driving off…….
Entering the house , I met my mom in the sitting room. She was obviously waiting for me
hi mom! I greeted
Oh Candy! why are you home by this time?
Guess what mom! I asked ignoring her question
What? She frowned
I have a manager now . I squealed and she jumped up in excitement
Are you for real baby? She asked to be sure
Yes mother, she was who delayed me . I explained
Was she the one who brought you home?
No mum, it was Nick . I informed
Nick! Was he in school also? She probed
No , he picked me up from the taxi station
Then why didn’t he just spend the night here? she frowned
I think he has some stuff to fixed. I covered up for him
I need to go sleep mother , I am so tired
Good night mum. I bade and headed to my room
I was tired and at the same time very excited……
On getting home , I drove into the compound and parked in the garage
I alighted from the car and walked into the sitting room
There was no one in the sitting room so I headed up the stairs to Chase room
I was confused about everything
I pushed the door to his room opened and walked in
he was seated on his bed with his eyes glued to his phone
hi! I greeted while sitting on the bed
Where are you coming from? he asked with his eyes still fixed on his phone
The Bar,I went to drink . I answered and he scoffed
Is that why you switched off your phone? he continued
Yes, I just wanted to be alone
I can see you are still worried about your mother? he rolled his eyes
hell no! I am not worried about her , I am angry with her. I corrected
Oh yeah! he drawled
By the way, I saw Candy at the taxi station this night . I informed
Yeah, she already told me about it .
Oh I see!
I pulled off my shoes and laid on the bed
What are you trying to do? Chase asked , he gave a puzzled look
And what does he seems like to you . I retorted
Are you planning on sleeping here? he asked and I nodded
But you haven’t …. he tried to say but I cut him off
Good night bro! I bade
Crazy! I heard him cursed and I smiled…….
The sound of my phone ringing jolted me out of sleep
D--n! I cursed
I picked the phone up from the table beside me and was about receiving it when it stopped ringing
Who can it be? I wondered
I sat up on the bed and turned to look at Nick who was still sleeping peacefully beside me
I was about waking him up when my phone rang again
I checked the caller , it was Dave ,my manager
I received it
hi Dave! I greeted
Chase! Where are you? What about Nick? he asked in a rush
We are both home , is anything the matter? I rubbed my eyes
Oh Chase! haven’t you heard what happened to Nick mother? he continued
What happened to her? I asked in alarm
It is all over on the news and social media
What are you talking about?
Just make sure you stay beside Nick so he won’t do anything stupid. he advised and ended the call
What is he taking about?
With a heavy heart , I typed the name Mrs Delgado and clicked on it
Oh my gawd! I widened my eyes at what I saw
It was the nude pictures of Roxy all over the internet
I scrolled down and tears flowed down my eyes at what I read
“The almost lifeless body of Mrs Delgado was found at the top of the bridge, she appeared to have been brutally raped… according to sources gathered , She has been rushed to the hospital…we all pray she survives it”.
No, it can’t be . I broke down in tears
Chase! I heard Nick called
I wiped my tears before looking at him
When did you wake .i faked a smile
Why is wrong? Why are you crying? he asked staring at me
I am not …… I tried to say but he cut me off
Don’t even go there bro, what is wrong? he repeated
It is your…. I tried to say but he dragged the phone from me
his hands shook as he scrolled through the phone
Whaaat arrre they talking about. he stuttered
Calm down Nick , she is still breathing. I assured him
What the hell are they taking about? he yelled
Nick! I called softly
Just tell me this is not true , please just tell me it is not true . he broke down in tears
You have to be strong Nick, you really have to be . I tried to hold him but he pushed me away
her nude is all over in the internet. he yelled
I stared at him not knowing what to say
he picked his car keys from the table and jolted out of the bed
And do you think I will allow you to drive to the hospital on your own?
he looked at me
Are you coming with me ?
Sure , she is my mother also and we will hunt whoever did this to her?
And how are we going to do that? he said in between sobs
We will start by finding her good for nothing lover
Watching the news , I laughed out loud
Oh Roxy! You are a fool to trust someone like me
hope you did a good job? I asked Bosco who was seated on the sofa opposite me , smoking.
Sure bro, no one would link it to you. he assured and I smiled
