Read Story: SEASON 2 EPISODE 41

I opened my eyes to find myself in a hospital. My wife, my mother in law and detective Johnson were all present with a look of concern on their faces. I tried to smile but was unsuccessful. I tried to talk but couldn’t.

‘’oh dear Lord, he’s finally awake’’ Jessica breathed happily, handed over my little daughter to her mother, drew forward and sat beside me on the bed, touching my chest.

‘’baby’’ she breathed. I tried once again to force myself to talk but still couldn’t.

‘’please relax dearest. You are still in shock’’ Jessica said softly. I speechlessly stared at her as I slowly remembered what put me on the hospital bed. I quickly remembered Comfort. My heart beat quickly increased. I became overly scared.

I was scared because comfort was still free out there, probably lying in wait for Jessica and my little daughter. No one was there to stop her. I alone knew what the damn girl was capable of. She shot me for God’s sake.

‘’I think he’s trying to say something but it’s a pity we have to wait till he recovers his speech’’ detective Johnson said aloud and shrugged.

‘’my God who could have done this to you. You have been here for almost eight hours. Two bullets were removed from your body. Luckily none of your vital organs were hit but you lost a lot of blood’’ Jessica said to me. I felt very bad. I cursed comfort for putting me is such lame condition. I cursed the day I met her. I simply stared at my loved ones unable to say a word.

‘’well I think it’s a case of robbery gone wrong. The hoodlums must have seen you and your mother leave the house and never expected to find your husband at home. A scuffle ensured and he got shot. They then went ahead to ransack the whole apartment and steal every valuable thing they could find. The most confusing thing here is why none of your neighbors saw a thing?. I guess they are scared of getting involved or they don’t trust the police. None of them are saying anything and I cant even find the good neighbor who used your husband’s phone to call me. She really saved his life with it. I guess we have to wait till he gets better. Perhaps he can give us a lead.’’ the detective summarized while I listened painfully. I just couldn’t do anything than listen.

A doctor soon walked in with a smile, checked me up and tapped my shoulder.

‘’you are a very strong man Mr Caleb. You will be discharged in few days. Just keep the spirit up’’ he said professionally.

————————————

I woke up very early the next day to see Jessica sleeping on a chair beside me. Tears fell from my eyes as I watched her silently. Of course I deserved everything happening to me. I brought ant infested wood into my house and deserved everything I got out of it. But Jessica didn’t deserve all these. I just couldn’t imagine what comfort was up to, nor where she was. I felt so helpless watching my wife so vulnerable unaware of the risk she was facing.

My eyes closed once again as the thoughts crossed my mind. I slept afterwards, waking hours later to see Jessica smiling at me.

‘’my love. My dearest. I so much love you” she breathed with a smile. I swallowed hard.

‘’you are so brave my darling. You stay strong’’ she added, kissing my forehead.

‘’our daughter is with my mother. They spent the night in my dad’s house. I will be leaving for some minutes. I have to go freshen up, feed our daughter and get your food. I will be back in thirty minutes. I equally spoke with your parents last night. They will come over today’’ she said sweetly.

‘’Comfort. Comfort. comfort shot me’’ I stammered, shocking my dear wife with the unexpected news. She instantly gasped.

‘’what!, comfort did what?’’ she asked with disbelief.

‘’call detective Johnson. Tell him the damn girl is out in the loose. You are in danger. You and our daughter is her target. Please call the detective.’’ I begged, sweat drenching my body as I used up all my strength to talk.

‘’of course I will. I will call the detective on my way out’’ she muttered, grabbed her bag and ran out… I quietly prayed to God to guide and protect her.

‘’dear lord please don’t let anything happen to her’’ I prayed with tears.

Jessica had barely left the hospital when comfort appeared from nowhere showing up like a ghost. I panicked on seeing her. I just didn’t know what to make of her presence. I couldn’t figure out if she was there to finish me up or to do something else. I helplessly stared at her as she drew closer and sat on my bed with a face devoid of any expression.
