Candace Noah

*

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

She smiled

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

She smiled

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

Fine!

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

Alright ma!

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

Thanks.

*

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

he smiled

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

She smiled

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

Oh!

I need to go sleep mother , I am so tired

Alright baby

Good night mum. I bade and headed to my room

I was tired and at the same time very excited……

Nick Delgado

*

*

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…….

*

*

Chase Delgado

*

*

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 smiled

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

he scoffed

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

Andy

*

*

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
