On Monday morning, I went to the hospital with Tinuke. I had another test and I was given the result. I went to her office, she had the drug test result with her already. She handed it over to me while I showed her the pregnancy test result. hospital right?”

“Yes.”

“Thanks. We are on our way right now.”

“What’s going on, who had an accident?” Anime mum asked.

“Mummy hold on I need to confirm something” I said and asked Anike’s mum to give me Admiral Alawode’s number.

“Hello, good morning sir, please where is Anike as we speak?”

“We had an argument and she left the house an hour ago. I’m about to call her too before your call came in.

“Jesus! so she’s not in the house!”

“What is it?”

“Anike is in the hospital as we speak, she had an accident.”

“Accident! she left the house an hour ago. I called her immediately, she left but her line was switched off. Then I decided to try again, I decided then to try again before your call through” Admiral said in a shaky voice.

“A nurse who picked her call told me she’s from the National hospital and said she’s in surgery” I informed him.

“I’ll meet you there” he said and hang up immediately.

Anike’s mom was already sitting on the floor crying. I pulled her up.

“We need to go to the hospital now, she need your prayer please be strong for her.”

“I’m finished, I was told not to allow her marry Alawode o, I told Anike but she said it’s too late that she was already pregnant. I hope I haven’t use my own hands to destroy my life” Anike mum’s wailed.

“All will be well ma, let’s go.”
I remembered Anike told me about a little girl who gave her a message at the orphanage but Admiral was too good to be true. We all believed Anike can never have a problem in her marriage. Admiral is a perfect man any woman could ask for. I silently pray to God to keep her and her babies safe.

We got to the hospital and met Prince Alawode pacing up and down the hallway.

“What happened? Why did she leave the house this morning this is just past 10? Where is she going?” Anike’s mum questioned.

“I shouldn’t have let her leave the house, this is all my fault. I should have stopped her. But you all know when she’s angry she never listen to anyone. That’s why I let her go.”

“Anike and her anger issue” I said to myself.

“What happened exactly” I asked Admiral.

“I was searching for some documents, she said she didn’t take it and accused Mirabel instead. Mirabel came in and said Anike had already threngthened her that she’ll make her leave the house. I was shocked I thought they had good rapore…

“Good rapore! Mirabel never liked her, she only pretend to like her when you are around” I explained.

“That’s not possible.”

“You can call your son and asked he knows everything.”

“Prince Alawode called his son and he confirmed what I just told him. He also told his son the present situation.

Two hours later, the doctors came out.

“Nurse Aisha where are the patient’s relative” one of them asked.

“Over here” she said and signaled to us.

We all ran towards the doctor. “Are you her relatives” he asked.

“Yes” we all chorused.

“She was rushed in this morning, auto accidents with head injury, open wound fracture of the tibia…” the doctor tried to explain but Prince cut in.

“Doctor how is she, I could have her transferred abroad right now.”

“That’s too late sir, we tried all her possible best but we lost her, the twins are in the ICU as we speak, they are also incubated bcos they are prematured. I’m so sorry for your loss” he sympathized.

“Anike’s mum fainted immediately, while Prince held his chest in pain.

“Anike! Anike!!” Prince called out.

He had a cardiac arrest and slump. I and the doctor rushed to him trying to resuscitate him.

“Are you a doctor” the doctor asked me.

“Yes, I’m a doctor” We rushed him into the ER, but he died before we even placed him on the operating table.

“Prince! I screamed. My legs couldn’t stand any longer and I sat on the floor.

I was running mad myself. “What kind of a doom is this for God sake” I said crying my heart out.

This is so unfair, Anike and Prince did not live to even see or hold their own children.”

There body was transferred to the morgue. I called Prince Alawode’s son with Admiral’s phone and broke the news to him, he said he’s coming right away.

We went back to the house and met the animal in human form Mirabel, she was even eating.

“Congratulations Mirabel, you just lost your father who died after receiving the news of Anike’s death.

“What! My father is dead!”

“You can confirm at the mogue, you this snake. You should pop champagne your enemy died with your father” I barked at her.

She left the house immediately, maybe going to the mogue, I don’t care.

The policemen investigating Anike’s accident came to Admiral’s house. They said the accident was caused by brake failure.

“How is that possible, her husband bought her the car last month” I said.

“A new car? Then something is fishy” one the police officers said.

“My point exactly” I replied.

“If it’s a new car then there’s every possibilities that someone tampered with her brakes.”

“I’m very sure of that, someone did” I said.

“Can you think of anyone who want her dead?” The police man asked.

“I don’t know if the person want her dead. But the only hater Anike had was her step daughter Mirabel.”

“Where is she now?” he asked.

“I don’t know, looking for her father, I guess.”

“We’ll come back tomorrow to carry on on our investigations. We’ll have to question her too” he said and they left.

I went back to the room consoling Anike’s mum. She kept on lamenting that she should have stopped Anike from marrying Prince. I told her we are all at fault we were carried away by their blissful and beautiful relationship and forgot to pray. She had call her two other children who are on their way to Abuja. I informed Jedidiah too who was shocked to the bone. He said he regretted not telling her how he felt about her, maybe she would have changed her mind about marrying. Deep down in me, I know Anike can never love another man. He loved Admiral. Jedidiah promised to come to Abuja for the burial. I also told Olamilekan via smiled. He was shedding tears when he heard the news. He said he’ll come for the burial too.

I took Anike’s mum to my parent’s house here in Abuja to pass the night. My parents also help in consoling her. My mum shared the same room with her, so she won’t be left all alone.

She kept on blaming herself for her daughter’s death. Everyone is guilty.

The next morning, my parents advice she stay back in our house till she leaves Abuja. I reason with them, it’s better to stay with us than to stay in the house with that Mirabel.

Admiral Alawode’s son Henry arrived the next day. And we started making burial arrangements.

That week Anike and her husband was buried. Henry insisted they bury them side by side because that’s what his father would have wanted. Family members were present at the burial. Anike’s family: Her mum, Adekemi, Okiki, Jedidiah, Olamilekan was also present including PA, he was the one consoling Adekemi before now but he couldn’t put himself together at the burial. I was told Prince was like a father to him. They both loss their dear ones.

I came for my friend’s baby shower but instead I was at my friend’s burial that same day. Yes that was the date for her baby shower. I wish they are alive to raise their babies, to shower them with all the love and care the two of them shared.

The police called Mirabel in for questioning.

The police came to the house to inform us that the case will be close since there’s no evidence that claimed that the brakes was tampered with.

“Who gave you permission to close the case” I asked rudely.

“We can’t find any concrete proof to proof that the deceased car brakes was tampered with. We have interrogated Miss Mirabel and all the staff.

“If someone tampered with the brakes then the tampering was done inside this compound” said Henry.

“Yes you are right” the police officer replied.

“There’s a CCTV camera in the house let’s check the footage” Henry informed us.

“Where can we watch the footage” the police man asked.

“In my father’s study” he replied.

“Please take us there.”

We all followed Henry. He got to the door and the password stopped us. He tried three times but the code didn’t work.

“Think” the police officer told him.”The code had to be something important to your father.

“Tinuke what’s her date of birth?”

I told him, he entered it but the door did not open.

“Try their wedding date” I said.

He tried it and lo and behold the door was open before us.

We entered and started checking the footage for the past one week.

Then we saw the devil, Mirabel was standing beside Anike’s car. Then after some minutes she was under the car.

Henry put her two hands on her head with his mouth wide opened. I was surprised too, I know she didn’t like Anike but not to the heights of attempting to take three lives because I’m very sure she’s aware Anike is carrying twins.

“Please where can we find her?”

“She should be in her room” Henry replied.

“So she’s inside this house and never showed up since we got here?” the police officer said.

We got to her room and met her dead. She had commited suicide.

Henry picked up the note and read…

Henry I’m sorry….

Henry wept “In one week I lost three people who are dear to me” he cried.

“Just take it easy” I said. I pity Mirabel because she just made the worst mistake of her life. Many people don’t know that committing suicide is a ticket straight to hell. Because suicide is murdering oneself and no murderer can inherit the kingdom of God.

The police men took the body to the mogue.

I called Anike’s mum she was in the hospital with the twins. I told her everything, she wept. I consoled her before ending the call.

Henry called her Mum and told her about her sister’s death. She was buried when his mum arrived.
