Many at times we give up on life and God. We tend to think God is not there, the little things we go through shake our faith instead we rush to suicide. As a child of the most high God, you ought to be prayerful every time, the enemy will never sleep whether you are happy or not. He attacks from all angles.
I had given up all hope of being found but seeing that doctor changed everything. He kind of looked confused when he came in, he asked which one of us was the patient. He then asked the other lady to excuse us. He whispered in my ears asking why I looked like I was being held against my will before I could respond the devil walked in. The doctor checked my temperature, it decreased from the 39.4 the idiots earlier anticipated. It was 38.3 though still not a good thing. The devil sat next to me on the bed cuddling my legs, the doctor excused himself to use the kitchen. As soon as the doctor stepped out, all hell broke lose.
“If you say anything to that doctor, I won’t hesitate to kill you, Infact I will kill him too. I told him you are my wife so behave like one.”
“I have done nothing wrong, why are you hurting me? Please let go of my neck, its paining.”
“Mwila you know what I’m capable of doing. Do yourself a favor unless you want your hands to be stained with blood.”
“Please leave me alone. I’m not deaf I heard you.”
“If you try to do anything smart, just know all your friends will be in trouble.”
“I won’t I promise, leave my friends out of this”
“The ball is in your hands.”
“I will do anything you want me to, just leave my friends alone.”
“Scratch my back I scratch yours.”
“I will do as you have said.”
Doc came back, he prepared some meds and gave it to me, he promised to check up on me and bring some more meds.
Doctor: come to think of it why don’t you bring her to the hospital?
Him: I have been trying, she is refusing saying she is fine. Doc this woman is stubborn.
Me: No doctor I’m fine, it’s just a cold I guess.
Him: We had gone to Nsafya beach for our vecay. The whole problem started there.
Me: I’m very fine, you people should stop worrying.
Him: You heard it loud and clear from the horse’s mouth. Who am I to oppose?
Doctor: Women! Women! They behave as if they were created on the same day, my wife is the same.
Me: hahahahaha leave us alone, we are not cry babies like you guys.
Doctor: I have to rush back, I have taken some blood samples. Will tell you the results tomorrow.
Me: Thank you so much sir. God bless you.
Him: If the situation doesn’t change, I will bring her to the hospital.
The good doctor took his leave, he begged me to take my meds. I thanked him so did my enemy next to me. The doctor left, devil followed behind to give him a push. I felt so much sadness in me, I really hoped for that doc to be the cute doctor from Levy Mwanawasa hospital. All in all I have my faith in God.
I imagined how my life would be, it being the four days holiday, I would have travelled to Mufulira to visit my parents. Who knows maybe I would have been with my squad in Livingstone. I miss my friends Lulu, Naomi, Angela, Carol. So sad I’m not going to be with my loved ones over the holy week . I was suppose to meet Angela’s Prince charming. She spoke highly of him. I pray he takes care of her.
Charles the best of them all, I don’t know what he is going through especially if he is aware of what’s going on. Poor guy he will turn the entire Zambia upside down in search of his princess. As for Francis, he is probably in police cells. My friends will make sure of that. At the same time I feel pity for Francis, he must be paying for a crime he didn’t commit. Nonetheless Karma has a way of dealing with people, Francis is simply getting back the taste of his own medicine.
How I wish I could see Mwanza, he is one of the few people who put a smile on my face. If I ever get out of this hell hole, I will collaborate with Mwanza for a Radio show.
The maid came to my room, she was listening to the radio on her phone. I asked her to increase the volume. My favorite song was playing “Bulie” by Preye. This song is my everyday strength. Whenever my faith in the Lord sicken, I always listen to it. It indeed brightens up my day. This lady has a phone? Why can’t I use it to call my mum or Lulu I thought to myself.
Me: Can I use your phone to make a call.
Lady: No my dear you can’t do, its not possible.
Me: why not?
Lady: This phone is tapped, the boss is aware of all calls I make and receive. If I do anything silly, I won’t leave to see tomorrow. I hope you understand.
Me: Yes mam I understand besides you have been nice to me, I wouldn’t want to endanger your life.
Lady: Thank you my child. Continue being nice to the boss. He will surely take care of you.
Me: I will.
Maybe this lady was right, a lot of things were at stake. Any slightest mistake, a lot of people’s lives will be at risk. The only way I would avoid such is keeping quiet. This guy was way ahead of my time. Whatever game he was playing, he knew all tricks and tactics to use in all corners. I love everyone in my life, I would never forgive myself if any of them gets hurt because of me.
The lady left to get clean beddings, she left her phone. As they say curiosity killed a cat, I reached for the phone. I quickly dialed Lulu’s line. A male voice picked up.
Me: Hello where is the owner of the phone? Can I please talk to her?
Male Voice: What the hell do you think you are doing Mwila?
Me: How do you know me? Just give the phone to the owner it’s important I talk to her.
Male Voice: Ohhhhhhh baby do you think I’m so dumb! I asked you not to outsmart me. What happened to our deal?
Me: What are you talking about? What are you doing with my friend’s phone? Where are you?
Male Voice: Baby there is one me. The man you love to hate who hates to love you.
Me: You!!!!!!!!!! Are you having my friend as well?
Male Voce: No! Any call you make in this house comes straight to me.
Me: What the hell! You are mader than mad.
Male Voice: You can say that again.
Me: I hate you.
Male Voice: I was trying to be nice to you! What have you done? You have betrayed my trust! You will pay dearly for this.
Me: Please don’t do anything stupid, I beg of you. I will do anything you want me to do.
Male Voice: No baby you need a check up in reality.
Me: I said I’m sorry.
Male Voice: If a child does wrong, you punish them.
Me: Please! Please! Please!
Male Voice: Tick Tock! The clock is counting. Wait for your surprise.
Ohhhhhhh Lord! What have I done now? I hope this psycho doesn’t do anything stupid. It’s my fault. The maid came with clean beddings. She found me crying. She asked why I was crying. I apologized for going against her by using her phone. “What have you done! I told you the consequences of using my phone. Now we are both in trouble. I left my phone with you because I trusted you!” she exclaimed.
I must admit that I felt bad doing what I did to that lady. All she did is be nice to me. I took her good deeds for granted.
She quietly spread the bed and left.
I kept on asking myself why I was tempted to touch that phone. I should have just let it be. Thinking too much I slept, I had a wired dream. In my dream Lulu was killed while trying to save me. I cried so much that I woke up with tears rolling down my face.
I looked around the room .Thank God it was just a dream, dam it was so real. Ohhhhh my Lulu I just hope you are okay wherever you are.
The TV was on, I decided to watch to kill boredom.
What’s this am seeing? The devil in bed with my friend. How did Angela get here? What is she doing with this guy? Why is she having sex with him on TV? Shit!!!! this house has cameras or what?.
Ohhhhh No!! Is this what I get for betraying his trust. So he makes love to Angela and films it. He might do something bad to Angela.
“No Angela! No Angela! Please stay away from that monster.” I screamed on top of my voice.
