In no distant time, Richærd, Cole, Sandra, Joy and David were admitted in the nearest hospital, Clara for some reason best known to her refused to be administered to, she declined any medical checkup,
Not long after, she stood up and walked out of the ward…
With much acceleration, she drove straight to Chief Gabriel’s apartment, she was determined to bring him down at all cost, he was the cause of all the suffering and pain they had gone through and now she is not gonna rest until she makes him feel the same pain they all felt
Without the knowledge of anyone, clara had placed a tracker on the tyre of Chief Gabriel’s car while in the building,and now she is heading to the location which was shown in the tracking device she was holding,
In no distant time, clara reached the apartment which was a beautifully designed mansion well built to show off how rich the owner was,
She parked her car a little bit distance away then walked to the gate on foot, she knocked on the gate twice before it was unlocked and opened by a middle aged man claded on a blue uniform,
“ehen, how can I help you?” the man asked staring at Clara whose appearance showed she had just fought a bloody battle as one could see some little cuts in her arm and cheek
“i came to see Chief Gabriel..is he in?” clara asked innocently
“ermmm..he Is in but I don’t think you can see him now” the security man said,
“why?” clara asked with an arched brow..
“he doesn’t entertains any sort of visitor here, he…” clara pointed a gun at him and that made him stopped his speech abruptly
“open this gate let me go in now!” clara said with a stern face,
“okay..okay” the man agreed nodding his head continuously as he went for the key which he used and opened the gate widely,
Clara drove in and parked her car in the garage then hopped out swiftly, just immediately she was coming out, chief Gabriel was also coming out from his house with his crew,
Clara stared at them and quickly recognized the other woman with them as Sandra’s mother due to the clear resemblance, she sat on the bonnet of her car waiting for them to come closer,
just as she expected, chief Gabriel and the other turned to her direction and saw her..
Chief Gabriel was totally astound on how clara was alive talkmore of being in his house at this very moment, likewise Dr Mike and Angela..
“what are you doing here and how did you find your way into my house?” Chief Gabriel asked through gritted teeth throwing a glance at the security man whose face was full of fright
“is that the best way to welcome a guest” Clara said with a smirk
“Clara, I can’t remember inviting you here so I’ll like if you can just steer out your car from this environment now” Chief Gabriel said in exasperation
“uhm..really, I’ll leave but that’s after I’m done with the reason for being here..okay, now..” she jumped down from the bonnet where she sat,
“if you want me to quietly leave here in peace, tear off that doc-ment in your hand” clara said while they all flinched excluding Lucy who was just staring at Clara plainly
“are you out of your senses..how can you just come out of nowhere and order me on what to do!!” Chief Gabriel seethed while Clara just smiled at him
“I came here to adopt you, Angela and Mike, either willfully or forcefully”
this words moved everyone aback, their faces were exuding much confusion
“I.. I don’t understand” Angela said with a questioning look
“you’ll understand later but that would be after we have reached my apartment” clara said and smiled again
“you know what? you’re mad!! stay here, I’m gonna call your boss now and bet me, you will be in hot soup when he comes” chief Gabriel said and brought out his phone..
“do corpse answers phone call?..well, if they do, then go ahead and call him” clara said making them all glanced at her in shock ,
“what are you insinuating?” Dr Mike asked with a raised brow
“you see guys, one thing I hate is wasting of time and that’s what you three wants to cause me now..hmm..i may be forced to break those tiny legs of you guys oo, quietly enter this car let’s go to my apartment, we have many things to sort out” Clara said to them but chief Gabriel wasn’t even listening to her, he was busy calling Rex’s number continuously
“has he answered the call from the grave?” clara asked in a sarcastic tone,
“you bitchy chump..what the heck did you did to your boss because I can’t believe you killed him” chief Gabriel cursed angrily
“suit yourself..i give the three of you 3 minutes to hop into this car or else you’ll get it the hærd way” clara said sternly before walking to Lucy,
“Ma.. are you Sandra’s mother?” clara asked her in a calm tone
“yeah I’m..do you know where I can find them” Lucy asked with her eyes glittering with unshedded tears..
“I’ll take you to your children but I’ve to treat this old fools first okay?” clara said and wiped off the tears that just dripped down her cheeks
“I don’t know who you are but thank you very much” Lucy said with a bright smile,
“welcome..” clara said then turned sharply at Chief Gabriel and the others only to find out that he had been guarded by 10 men armed with guns..
“why do you always love doing things the hærd way, why do you want to waste the lives of these guard of yours, tell them to move back now that they still had the chance or in the next 3 minute they would become corpse” clara said in an unperturbed tone
“what made you think you can bring down 10 men in 3 minute, is that how pompous you have suddenly became” Dr Mike sneered
There in the eyes of everyone, Clara brought out a small pistol which she tucked in her trouser and fired a quick shot at the men in a way that was so amazing, it really took the men including chief Gabriel and the other unaware, no one ever expeted such a quick and immediate shot from Clara so sudden..
“chief Gabriel, you and your crew had really wasted my time here, now get into the car before I slam those shapeless head of yours” clara said in a serious tone with inflicted fear in them as they entered the car without hesitation,
“Hey madam” clara called Lucy
“ride on your car to this location, you’ll find your daughter and son there” Clara said handing a sheet of paper to her before swoozing off through the opened gate,
Lucy couldn’t control her joy as she hastily entered her car, after many years, she was going to see her daughter and son, her happiness really knew no bound,
she drove speedily to the hospital with her wh0le body quivering in unending glee.. as she drove into the hospital and parked her car at the car park she quickly ran upstairs, tears was dropping off her eyes as she made her way to the ward where her children was..
Lucy hastily pushed open the door forcefully in anticipation making the door let out a loud creaking sound
she walked in slowly with tears still gushing down her cheeks, lying on the bed with several machine connected to her body was Sandra her only beloved daughter, her child which she had left for many years now, she couldn’t control her emotions as she burst out into uncontrollable sob, there was no one in the ward,
Lucy took a seat at the edge of the room and placed it beside the bed where Sandra layed,
Her heartbeat increased it’s pace as she stared at her child who has went through many pains all through her life,
David drove into Clara’s mansion with a smile on his face, some part of his body was plastered and there was no doubt that he could feel some kind of sharp pain in his body but the joy in his heart couldn’t allow him succ-mb to the pain he was feeling, the source of his joy couldn’t be far fetched as with the speed at which he headed into Clara’s house really showed she was the source of his happiness,
Seeing her gives him joy and the thought that she is his girlfriend makes cold shiver rush down his spine,
The bright smile which was on his face quickly faded off as he entered the sitting room,
The people he saw being tied on a seat was his least expected,
“Chief Gabriel” he called out really befuddled
“David” chief Gabriel called back with his eyes w¡dened,
“what are you doing here?!!” Chief Gabriel asked him confusedly
“David are you here? when did you arrived” clara interrupted walking downstairs hastily
“Ohh my yummy..I am just arriving” David said hugging her passionately
“okay, how is Richærd and the others, I hope they are recuperating?” clara asked
“yeah, so what brought these people in your palace ?” David asked as they broke the hug
“I want to give them their own piece of cake” Clara said with a little smile
“okay dear..let’s do it together” David said and glared at Chief Gabriel
“do you ever knew that once in your lifetime you’ll be at my mercy?” David said with a smirk
“I’m not at your mercy you filthy brat..I’ll still frustrate your life like I had always done!!” Chief Gabriel seethed while David scoffed at his words,.
“how can you frustrate my life when you’re going behind the bar” David said making Chief Gabriel burst into laughter
“me?? jail..you know you can’t put me behind the bar because you don’t have any thing to use against me” chief Gabriel said amidst laughter
“that’s what you thought but I tell you, I’ve all it’s takes to make you rot in jail” Clara ch¡pped in with her arm akimbo
“and what do you have if I may ask?” Gabriel sneered
“three people would stand against you in the court of law, all you did to Sandra and Cole would be used against you” clara said making Gabriel laugh out loudly again
“who would believe you if you tell them all I did to Sandra and Cole” Gabriel inquired still laughing hysterically
“watch this” clara beckoned and slide in a disk in,side a disk reader, not long afterward, a movie scene began in the big plasma TV hung on the wall,
it was displaying Gabriel with the others sitting comfortably on the sofa as four men beat Sandra and the other continuously and hærdly without stopping..
It displayed many heinous act done by chief Gabriel and his crew, there was no doubt that if this disk ever reaches the hand of the cops, there is no way he would escape their wrath..
“are you now convinced that you are at my mercy now?” David said with a stern face while they all stared at him with a pleading expression,
“Erm..David my son, you..”
“wait..did you just called me your son? have you gone nut or are you suddenly blind that you can’t recognize your son” David retorted angrily
“please David have mercy on us” Angela who had been terribly terrified after watching that video begged with tears
“Hey, don’t even say any single trash to me..I’ve nothing to do with you, Sandra would be the one to judge your case”David said and turned to Chief Gabriel
“Ple..ase..can..” chief Gabriel stuttered as he stared at David who had his face berserk..
“Chief Gabriel..out of peace you put me into trouble, you shattered my future, you made me a hoodlums, tiu never thought of what I should do to become something in the future, I wasted my life risking it for you, I killed many souls for you and what did you used in paying back was killing me but I escaped then you took me again and made me your killing machine, you suffered innocent soul for your own benefit..you must taste suffering from me” David said in tears before turning to Clara behind him,
“We are going to hand that disk to the cops tomorrow” he said while Clara nodded in agreement,
chief Gabriel and the others kept begging for mercy but it all went in deaf ears..
It was evening time, Cole, Richærd Sandra and Joy was in their ward, they had all been treated and are now expected to wake up In no distant time,
Lucy could not just leave beside her precious daughter, not even for a minute, she refused taking anything, all that she cared for was for Sandra to just wake up and talk to her, her heart was filled with passion as she gazed at her daughter, she kept praying silently that Sandra and Cole would just stand up healthy now..
Just like an answered prayer, Sandra made a sudden movements on her finger, Lucy on seeing that w¡dened her eyes in extreme joy. she carefully grasped Sandra’s palm into her wh0le fondling it in a soothing manner,
“Sandra my only daughter, can’t you just for my sake wake up, your lost mother Is here, she is waiting in anticipation, please wake up and talk to mom” Lucy cooed and just instantly, Sandra’s eyes fluttered open, Lucy squeaked out in an elated voice as she peered deeply into Sandra’s eyes
“mother Is that you?” Sandra’s weak voice sounded, it was very low and was just like a whisper
“yes..Sandra this is your mother beside you” Lucy replied smiling out tears,
To the surprise of everyone, Sandra struggled up from the bed and sat at the edge
“mom, I can’t believe I’m seeing you again, where have you been all this while?” Sandra asked in tears
“I.. I was hiding and escaping from death,i..i” she broke down in tears, the scars in Sandra’s body was eating her deeply..
“stop crying mom..wait..” Sandra eyes w¡dened, she started tilting her head in every corner of the room .
“what is it?” David asked her curiously
“where Is Richærd? please tell me he is fine..pleaseee” Sandea said still searching for him
“yeah he is safe..will wake up in no distant…” Paul walked into the ward with a worn out face and that made everyone look at him with a questioning eyes..
“Richærd Is dead” he announced
“No oooooooo” Sandra scre-med and fell back to the bed..
