“You don’t know?” David repeated, he walk closer and point his finger at Sandra’s face.

“What are you saying, David?” Sandra asked dumbfounded by the revelation. She remembered how David went all out to win her heart but she didn’t agree to his proposal.

“Oh God” Sandra cried out, she took a handful of sand.
“As this rain wash away this sand so as your riches, fame, happiness, joy, success will be washed away. You will beg for death and it shall be far from you, David you and your friend shall suffer…” Sandra dropped on her kneels, cuddling herself due to the the cold.

“Doctor, Doctor!” A lady ran towards the man on lab coat heading to his office. He waited to hear what she will say.
“How is my husband?” She asked stressed out, he ushered her into the office and offered her seat.
“Madam, we are doing all we can do. He is in a critical condition and he is still in state of coma, you just have to provide the money for necessary treatments” the man at his mid 40’s said, removing his lab coat.
“Sir, where will I get such amount of money? Please, doctor. Help my husband” the lady plead, almost going on her kneels.
“Madam, please get up. There is nothing I can do for you” the man said, leaving his office.
Four Days Later…

“Madam, we are sorry. We lost your husband” the woman couldn’t bottle her emotions. She scre-med, and roll on the floor, what the doctor was preventing from happening on the ward hallway.
“Where you able to remember anything afterwards?” Pastor Benjamin asked, I shake my head side ways indicating no. He folded his arms in astonishment.
“I was able to come to remembrance, when I heard somebody whispering ‘Smally, Smally, Smally’ three times after many years, I look back and find nobody. All of a sudden, I remembered everything” I said, Pastor Benjamin marvel at my confession.
“What then happened?” He inquired from me, I fringe at this point.
“Oohh– you are back” Kate threw at me, well seated on the sofa watching a movie. She look so unconcerned, and not bothered about my presence.
“What do you do to me?” I grab her by the arm and drag her up, she fringe. I ran my hand through my hair, I almost hit her but I was able to control myself. I let her go, she ran out of the house.
I drop to the chair, frustrated and confused.
