Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 31
The woman and I headed out of the noisy place to somewhere more silent.
Her hand was still on mine and we began to walk.
“So tell me, what’s your name?” She asked and I looked at her.
“Isaac.” I replied and she smiled.
“That’s a really nice name. Your mother was have a very good taste for names. You went down to the Bible.” She said smiling.
“She didn’t name me.” I said smiling faintly.
“She didn’t? Your father did?” She asked looking at me.
“They died. None of them named me.” I said trying to keep smiling.
“Wow. I am so sorry about that Isaac.” She said sadly and I shook
“It’s been 20 years. It’s a very long time.” I said laughing.
“So who named you?” She asked.
“The kids on the streets. The ones that took care of me from a very tender age.” I said and she stared at me.
“So you have been on the streets for how many years?” She asked and I grinned.
“All my life. 20 years.” I said looking at her and I saw tears gather in her eyes.
“Am so sorry about that Isaac.” She said and I smiled.
“It’s fine. I have gotten used to not having a parental love.” I said smiling.
“So how did you survive for 20 years?” She asked.
“On the streets. Eating garbage from the bins. And that’s where your son knew me from.” I said and she bowed her head.
“Am so sorry about Enoch. He is just a childish person.” She said and I laughed.
“It’s quite obvious.” I replied.
“So no one helped at all?” She asked and I shook my head.
“Not until I met Diana. The Pizza girl, she took me off the streets and made me this. She is a blessing to me. Having someone to show you love on your birthday after so many years, it’s a blessing.” I said grinning.
“It’s your birthday today?” She asked and I nodded.
“Yes it is. Though we just came visiting Diana’s mother for her birthday.” I said.
“Wow. Happy birthday Isaac.” She said and I smiled.
“Thank you Ma’am.” I replied looking up as we kept walking.
“Can I keep asking you questions?” She asked and I nodded.
“Sure.” I replied, it was kinda relieving sharing things with her.
“So when you grew up,you didn’t go to any of your family members, relatives?” She asked and I laughed.
“I don’t even know them. It was like when my parents died, they just told the Neighbors they died and left me in the streets.” I said and I heard her sniff.
“Wow.” She said in tears.
“Are you okay Ma’am?” I asked and she nodded.
“Yes. I am just too emotional right now. Sorry about that.” She said and I nodded.
“I understand.” I replied.
“Ma’am can I ask you some questions too?” I asked and she smiled.
“Go on.” She replied and I nodded smiling.
“You are a friend to the celebrant Hun?” I asked and she nodded.
“Yes I am. We were pretty close.” She said and I furrowed my brows.
“Were?” I asked and she nodded.
“We were best friends before, but when somethings she did didn’t seem right to me,I had to distinct myself.” She said and my mouth curved into a circle.
“Ohh that’s always kinda painful.” I said and she nodded.
“Yeah. It’s always painful.” She replied and I sighed.
“So Enoch is your only son?” I asked and she shook her head.
“Yes. I had him 18 years ago.”
She said and I laughed.
“I am even older than him. I should spank his a*s.” I said and we both laughed.
“He always acts funny because he is rich, he doesn’t know life isn’t that way.” She said and I smiled.
“I understand. He doesn’t know what is out there yet. He should be happy.” I said and she smiled.
“He is just a spoilt brat.” She said and I smiled.
“So no other child after him? Sisters? Brothers?” I asked and she shook his head.
“No.” She replied and I furrowed my brows.
“Why?” I asked and she sighed. She was about talking when I heard someone call my name. It was Diana.
“Isaac!” She called and I waved to her smiling. She looked very happy and I was happy too. At least she got a chance to talk to her father.
“Hey babes.” I said as she ran into my arms kissing me on the lips.
“I was looking all over for you.” She said before looking at the woman next to me.
“Hi Diana.” She said and Diana smiled.
“Hi Ma’am. You took Isaac away from me.” She said smiling hugging me tight.
“Sorry about that Diana. We were just discussing.” She replied and Diana laughed.
“It’s fine Ma’am. Was just joking.” She said and I giggled.
“You are very beautiful and nice.” The woman said to her.
“Thank you Ma’am. And you look so pretty too,I love your hair. I have always wished for a wine hair.” Diana said and the woman laughed.
“Thanks Child. I will leave both of you now.” She said.
“Okay Ma’am. It was nice talking to you.” I said and she nodded before walking away.
