“Where am i? I murmured on drifting back to the world of consciousness.
My head was throbbing hard threatening to rip open from the hard headache that welcomed me back to the planet.
My eyes felt heavy and seemed not to intend to open but i tried harder and they sluggishly clasped open though it was half way.
The blurry visual image reported to my brain.
The wall was cream coloured letting out whitish intruding colours from the glow of two long fluorescent light that beamed down white photons with serious brightness.
The window was covered in a mini blue curtain that barely covered everything, the bed was not as large as mine and gave slight metalic groans under me.
Could make out a not very clear figure in the surrounding seeming not be moving.
“Where am i” i intoned again, this time a bit loud and a lot of pain came from it, and i noticed i had a transparent oxygen mask that ran from the upper part of my nose down to my jaw..
The face became a bit clearer, that bright brown eyes, those dimples, radiant teeth and perky nose all sculptured in an oval chocolate face..
“Mama!” I intoned with hot tears sliding down the side of my face.
“My Johny, You will be fine” those silky slim voice that always made me feel safe when they sing me lullabies.
“Sky is awake!” i heard an exciting sound from no where as a figure began moving towards me.
I widened my eyes, my iris adjusting to the bright photons that intruded immediately and my vision began to clear more.. couldn’t see mama anymore.
Jessy ran to me beside the bed with a smile and tears on her face and from the eye bags around her eyes it was obvious she was stressed out.
“Nnam you are awake” I heard papa’s broad voice intone as an intruding wall of hands were clasped around me immediately.
I winced in pain making papa release himself from me as fast as he could.
I looked down and i was covered in bandages, my right leg was inclined at an angle of 45 degrees. white bandages ran all the way from my feet to my waist and i could feel piercing pains on my right knee, and waist.
My hands too were in bandages and the left arm gave me excruciating pains..
“Where am i?” I groaned out again..
“Nnam you are in the hospital” Papa intoned with visible unshed tears in his eyes..
“What am i doing here”
“You have been out for one week, you fell from the stairs. I thought you wouldn’t survive, i thank God you are back to me now” Papa came again running his hands all of over my fore-head.
My mind raced back to the last things i could remember.
From Papa’s first shout of my name when he came in, to amanda kneeling down.
“Yes yes, where is Amanda now” My mind asked but i couldn’t bring myself to ask that.
Fresh warm tears tickled down my eyes again, running from the corners down to the side of my ears because of my lying position.
Jessy sat holding my right hand with both of her hands trying to force out a smile.
“Papa i am sorry, please forgive me. I am so sorry” I cried out, the stream of tears now running freely across my face tickling down into the bed.
“Nnam please don’t say that again, it was all my fault and it almost cost me your life” Papa blurted out his voice now turning croaky as it resounded from the back of his throat. Those held back tears escaped and ran down his face which he tried wiping off with the back of his hands immediately.
Jessy was also crying, her grip on my hands increased.
The air felt like it ceased, the curtains were motionless and no sound could be heard.
“Ejimam please forgive me, i have wronged you both. this was all my fault. You lost a mother and needed a mother but instead i followed my foolish desires and got myself a wife and not a mother for you. Please ejimam forgive me” Papa sang out looking interchangeably from me to jessy. the lines on his face appeared more making him seem a bit older.
“Papa its ok” Jessy intoned, tears now flowing down her face like a waterfall.
Papa took Jessy into his arms embracing her tight muttering discernable semi-audible words “am sorry”
Both of them crashed themselves into me now, trying as much as possible to avoid the injured areas but yet the pain was there, i didn’t mind having papa and Jessy here with me now was more intense than the pains.
The door cracked open gently letting in a strange figure, female figure.
“Chioma!” I breathed out, as the creature became clearer.
“Chioma have been here with Jessy for the past one week that you have been in a coma” Surprisingly this came from papa.
I looked up weakly and was met with a smile on papa’s face.
Chioma sat beside jessy beaming down on me with an intense look that sent chills down my body.
“What about Amanda?” I managed to let out to no one exactly.
I could hear papa give out a heavy sigh making me look up to him.
“Nnam Amanda is pregnant and she have gone back to her parents, i will take care of her till she delivers and i will take responsibility for the child” i heard from papa.
My life was broken, but i could see hope for the pieces coming back together again.
I learnt my lesson and i learnt it the hard way almost loosing my life and i might not be able to walk for months.
Looking around me, could see papa, jessy and chioma smiling down on me. Life finally is smiling on me and everything that is important to me is starting my life anew with me.
In my greed lust and pains, i have found meaning to life and i think i have found love..
(Never allow your desires and greed to shut you out from the path of reason…)
MY FATHER’S WIFE season 2 would be updated tomorrow And that is when the real drama begins..
