Most Wanted Maid ……… Episode 37 .:
“My daughter.. its time to come home” Ebere heard the voice. She saw her, calling on her. It took her sometime to realise it was her mother.
Oh, how she missed the woman. The cold hands of death snatched the woman away from her when she was still very young, leaving her under the care of her relations.
“Come my daughter. Come” She smiled
again, smiling pleasantly.
“I am coming mommy. I am coming”Ebere said happily, running up to her.
Ebere felt someone tapping her. She opened her eyes only to find herself on the hospital bed. She had been day dreaming. One of her house neighbour was beside her. She was the one who tapped her, hearing her talk in her dream.
Ebere winced and moaned painfully as she tried to shift on the bed. Her eyes darted to her shoulder which was dressed with bandages and white cloth. The memories of how Sonia had shot her flashed through her.
She dropped her raised head back on the
“I’m sorry ok? The doctor said you will get
better. They have removed the bullet
already” her neighbour told her.
Ebere nodded. She couldn’t believe she was still alive.
Just then, she saw Angela’s parents, Adaora and another neighbour of hers enter the room. Her heart skipped a bit. She thought they have come to finish her up for having a hand in the kidnapp of their precious daughter.
At first, Mrs Ngozi couldn’t believe it was
Ebere, the only good friend of her daughter, who kidnapped Angela and even went as far as wanting to kill her. Angela had pleaded with them not to involve the police. However,they have found it as a perfect opportunity to persuade Ebere to retrace all her steps against Sonia.
Ebere eyed the woman who brought them to her, calling her ‘over sabi sabi’ in her mind but the woman was not to blame afterall.
Her fears were clearly written all over head as she fidgeted uncomfortably on the bed.
Mr.uwa cleared his throat and asked Ebere if she could tell her two friends to excuse them.
Ebere signaled to them to please give them a little privacy.
“Why do you want to kill my daughter?” Ngozi asked her with distate.
“It’s between the both of us” Ebere answered shamefully, confused about their visit, which looked like a peaceful one. How could they be easy with her when she tried killing her
“What actually do you have against Sonia?”Mr uwa asked.
“It was between the both of us too but now, its known. She is murderer” Ebere replied.
“What exactly did you tell the police?”Adaora threw another question at her.
“Just exactly what i said. She is a murderer”She maintained.
“What evidence have you given them?”Mr. Uwa asked her.
“I haven’t given them any evidence yet, but i sure have one. Sonia cannot deny it” Ebere answered him.
“You must withdraw that case immediately or else,you would also face the law for kidnapping my daughter” Mr.uwa threatened her.
Ebere kept quiet, different thoughts racing
through her. She felt empty and miserable. How was she going to live again, knowing she tried to kill her friend but failed? The thought of getting her again for the ‘dibia’ never crossed her mind.
She soon heard herself sniffing. From simple sniffing, she bursted into a loud cry.
“Just look at me… am i not getting older by the day? Are my mates not married? I am 32…will any man ever…”Ebere coughed in between her loud sobs. Her rate at which her tears flowed could make one believe they would fill a bucket.
“Some one told me it was Angela who told mike about my lifestyle, telling him the ones i did and the ones i didn’t do. I was forced to believe because she swore with her life that she was telling me the truth. I decided to take revenge on her”Ebere cried, regretting everything she
“How could you believe such a story?”
“please forgive me. I am sorry. help me plead with Angela to forgive me. tell her i am sorry. i still want to be her friend. she never did me any harm. I will do whatever you asked me to do about Sonia. I will….” she couldn’t continue due to her excessive sobs.
Ngozi went close to her and tried comforting her.
“i just want to have peace of mind. I will tell
them the whole thing was a mistake, Sonia did nothing to me. I will try and make sure the police releases her,” She assured them,” Please tell Angela that i am sorry”
Mr and mrs Uwa took turns looking at the DNA result. They still found it hard to believe it. After twenty three good years.
“Mom, Dad, is that a letter” Angela shocked
them, standing before them but she didn’t get a good view of the report. Her father quickly folded it and filed it bank into the envelope it came with.
“It’s nothing my dear. Don’t worry” Her father smiled at her, while her mother nodded in agreement with her father.
“I have to get going. Firstly, i am visiting Ebere. i have made up my mind to. I told David about it. She has been calling me on phone but i refused answering Angela said, hugged them goodbye and left.
