Dave saw her from a distance and tried calling but it was too late. A vehicle came out of nowhere, took a sharp turn and crashed into her. Brenda fell down with a thud…
She laid there motionless while the driver who hit her fled the scene. Mr. Wilson and Amelia came out at that moment. They had followed her when she ran out of the pub.
Dave got to the spot where Brenda laid and cried out her name, but she remained lifeless.
Dave cried like a baby as he placed her head on his chest. Oh my God!, could it be that my Brenda is dead?
He couldn’t help but thought of the worst.
“God please help me,” he silently prayed.
Mr. Wilson quickly brought his car around and together with Dave and Amelia, rushed her to the hospital.
On their way to the hospital, Mr. Wilson couldn’t think straight. He was so confused that he didn’t know where to start.
” what on earth is Brenda doing in Nigeria?,” he muttered.
Dave was at the rare of the car with Brenda as Amelia sat in the front of the car with Mr. Wilson.
There was a deafening silence in the car as they headed to the hospital.
At the hospital, nurses rushed Brenda to the emergency ward and got a Doctor to attend to her.
Mr. Wilson, Amelia and Dave waited at the Out-Patient section of the hospital. That was when Dave realized that it was Brenda’s Father who had driven them to the hospital.
Before he could think any further, Mr. Wilson was standing in front of him with Amelia.
His face was straight and mean.
“Young man, how do you know my daughter?” asked Mr. Wilson.
“Sir, we are in the same School” Dave answered with face bent down.
Mr. Wilson: “Ok. Thank you very much for your efforts; I appreciate it. What’s your name?”
“Dave, sir” he answered looking so surprised.
That obviously wasn’t what he was expecting. He had expected much more raucous dialogue but to his utmost dismay,Mr. Wilson cared less to query him further.
“he must be a very nice and gentle man,” he thought.
Amelia didn’t like that Mr. Wilson was being too nice with Dave. One could feel the rage on her face. She needed to do something quickly to destroy the bond they were establishing.
Just then, the Doctor came out. He turned out to be Amelia’s secret admirer from high school… The same Sam guy that recently made contact with her again.
He and Amelia had already scheduled a date.
“What a coincidence Amelia! Are you with the lady that was just brought in? Dr. Sam asked.
She recognized him instantly and answered the question “Yes”. Nodding at Mr. Wilson, she added “and that’s her father”
Mr. Wilson: “Doctor, please how is my daughter?”
Dr. Sam: “She is responding to treatment. We are yet to see the extent of the damage done but for now, she is doing well”
Mr. Wilson: “Thank you, Doctor. May I see her now?”
Dr. Sam: “Unfortunately no. You can only see her in the next two hours. For now, she needs rest.”
Mr Wilson: “Thank you so much, Doctor, thank you. We will wait for her.”
Dr. Sam: “Very well sir. Who is Dave?”
Dave: “I’m the one”
He said to him “Kindly follow me to my office.” He then turned to Amelia and said “I will call you soon”
Dave’s mind flew. His heart started beating even faster.
“Could it be he assumed me to be her father and was calling to tell me she was dead”, he started thinking of the worst case scenario as he followed him to his office.
Mr. Wilson was a little surprised when the Doctor asked for Dave but he trusted that he knew what he was doing.
He turned to Amelia “I see you know the Doctor” he said.
Amelia:” Yes, we were together in high school. He was a couple of years my senior, though”
Meanwhile, back at the Doctor’s office, Sam was talking to Dave: “It appears my patient is eager to see you. Your name was on her lips when she woke up. I’m giving you the opportunity to see her but only for a few minutes. It could help her get well faster”
Dave was both relieved and happy.Just as he had wondered if something was wrong, when the Doctor had asked to see him. He thanked him profusely after he divulged everything to him.
Sam then called a nurse to take Dave to Brenda’s ward.
Right after Dave left, the doctor called Amelia to come to his office.
She arrived in no time.
“Good to see you earlier than planned” Sam said.
“Yeah. I must admit you have grown very handsome. You definitely look a lot better than you did way back in school. I actually couldn’t make out your face when you called the other time.” Amelia responded.
Dr. Sam: “I know, right?! I was pretty much the timid type back in school… hardly noticeable. I just admired you from a distance”
Amelia smiled sweetly “I notice you now Sam”
She was well aware of Sam’s interest in her. She planned to use that as an advantage in getting back at Brenda.
The office was filled with awkward silence… Sam wasn’t sure how to proceed. He didn’t have to worry, Amelia was in charge. She came close to Sam where he stood at the edge of his office desk and without warning, landed a deep kiss on his lips.
The Doctor was amazed but he, however, enjoyed it while it lasted.
They kissed for a couple of minutes and when they were done, he asked “wow, what was that for? I sure was not expecting it.”
Amelia who by then had gone back to her seat answered: “There is more where that came from. I actually like you too”
The Doctor felt like he had finally found the wife of his dreams… Until Amelia’s next request.
Amelia: “Sam, I want you to do something for me”
Hang on for the Next Episode….
