Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 23
I stared at Mrs Danielle as she laid on the bed, her eyes were still shut and my eyes were still very heavy due to the excess tears dropping.
I kept staring at her until her eyes opened, she turned to look at me and I smiled.
“You are awake. How are you feeling?” I asked and she looked
“I fell unconscious.” She said and I nodded.
“Hold on! Where is Enoch!” She yelled trying to get up but I stopped her.
“Mrs Danielle I am so sorry, but Enoch is gone. And I think Issac knows who did it.” I said and her eyes widened.
“You know? Who is it?” She asked and I sighed.
“You don’t want to know. It’s not yet sure.” I said and she sat up at all cost.
“Tell me who did this to my son! Where is Isaac?” She asked.
“It’s uncle John. He was sent by Caroline’s husband to plant it in my drawer and instead of me taking it, he took it.” I said.
“Elisah did this?” She asked in tears.
“He didn’t mean it to be Enoch, he meant it for me.” I said bowing my head.
“Why? Why is he after you?” She asked.
“I am yet to find out. Isaac is at the police station, we are trying to lure Uncle John to mom, so she can make sure he doesn’t leave town because he knows Isaac knows.” I said and she grabbed her hair.
“I don’t still Understand why he would want to do this to you. You aren’t even staying with them, Caroline doesn’t even show she cares, why would Elisha try doing this to you?” She said and I shook my head.
“I don’t know. But I need to talk to mother, she must know something about this.” I said.
“Why would Caroline know something? You are her daughter.” She said.
“She doesn’t care about me! If she did she would have shown concern after I got back from the hospital, but she never showed.”
“She never had me in mind. She loves only her children from Elisha, I am a no body to her. But the most annoying part of all this is that Uncle John agreed to all this.” I said.
“What would he gain? How did he even know Elisha at the first place?” She asked.
“I don’t know, but don’t worry Danielle. We would get to the root of all this. Uncle John, Elisha and Caroline will pay for this.” I said angrily.
“But that doesn’t change the fact that Enoch, my son his dead. How do I tell his father? He isn’t even in the country.” She said in tears.
“We would find a way. I am so sorry Mrs Danielle.” I said hugging her and she met crying on my cloth.
I kept pacing, waiting for John to come in. I was trying so hard not to cry or anything, I had to act very nice if I want to keep him here.
It wasn’t even easy talking to him on the phone and smiling, so as to cover the shock and disappointment in my voice.
After few minutes, I saw John approaching from the other side, through my transparent walls. Immediately I sighted him, I began to breathe very fast.
“Omg John.” I said in tears as he barged into the shop.
“They are gone. They just ran off and….” I said stammering.
“I am so sorry Rita. Those guys won’t go Scot free for this.” He said angrily clenching his fist.
“Do you know them?” I asked.
“I think I do. And I think they want to get to me through you.” He said and I furrowed my Brows.
“Why? You are not a trouble maker.” I said and he sighed holding my hand.”You aren’t sure Mary. I am on a edge, and I am just so happy you are safe.” He said hugging me and brushing my hair.
“John you love me right?” I asked and he nodded.
“I do Mary. I swear on my parents grave.” He said and then I was happy he brought out another topic.
“Your parents? You never talked about them to me.” I said looking into his eyes. I felt so disgusted but I had to put the act on.
“They were killed terribly. Couldn’t bring myself to remember it.” He said.
“Why are you telling me now?” I asked.
“Because I need you to know that I never meant to hurt you or anyone. I was on the edge, my parents were killed by my boss cos they were debtors and I am still indebted to him.” He explained.
“Who is the boss? I don’t understand anything you are saying John. What is going on?” I asked and he sighed.
“Mary I am leaving. I know I shouldn’t but I have to. I tried to kill Diana.” He said and I moved back in shock.
“You did what??” I asked in terror.
“My life was at stake, and yours. I was sent to you by Elisha to make you fall in love with me, but everything changed. I fell in love with you.”
“My parents were indebted to Elisha, they borrowed money from him when I was young and close for dying.”
“They weren’t able to pay up on time, and Elisha being who is he, killed them and took me in. He began to use me for his works until he brought me to your path.”
“I would have just ran away, but he would hunt me and try to kill me. When I failed at the party, he sent me to do the same poisoning operation again but giving Diana a chocolate, but I guess Enoch took it.” He said.
“Enoch ?? How is he??” I asked in tears.
“He is dead. And it’s all my fault, I should have just said No to him, but I was been a coward. I didn’t want to die, not after I fell in love with you.” He said and in anger I slapped him very hard on his face.
“How dare you! You almost killed my daughter and now Isaac’s brother is dead! Because of you!” I yelled.
“I know I should suffer for this, and that’s why I am telling you all this! Because I love you. I could have just ran away but I couldn’t leave without seeing you. That’s because my feelings for you are real.” He said.
“Enough! Stop! Just stop John! I was imagining a life with you, a great Wedding, adopting a beautiful baby and then to find out you were sent to me?” I said and was about talking when we began to hear the sirens..
“They are hear for me.” He said looking around.
“Yes they are. And this is for breaking my heart.” I said giving him another slap.
“I am happy, that at least I will be free from Elisha.” He said and I began to shed tears.
