Deep Affection – episode 53

Written by Humble Smith
Clara, David was sitting adjacent to chief Gabriel and his crew with a gloating smile when suddenly chief Gabriel and Dr Mike started laughing out hysterically, this left clara and David curious, the sudden laughter really left them confused,
“what is amusing here?” David asked with an arched brow,
“do you want to hear it?” Chief Gabriel asked in a sarcastic tone
“have you gone nut? you are here in captive, under my power, instead of pleading for mercy, you are laughing!!” David yelled in exasperation,
“you may be happy that you have successfully got me bound, yes my life is in your hand at this moment, but let me make something clear to you, you a thought you are smart but I just showed you both that I’m more smarter..” Chief Gabriel said leading to another round of laughter from him and Dr Mike,
“I’m still confused..what..”
“wait let me make it clear to you..”Chief Gabriel paused then chuckled,
“Richærd would be dead by now..or would be dead in a minute later” Chief Gabriel blurted out making Clara and David flinch,
“what do you mean?” Clara asked with an arched brow
“we did not only beat him back and blue, we also injected a poisonous substance into his vein secretly” dr Mike said out smiling mischievously,
“wait .I’m still befuddled, you..” David speech hitched as his phone rang that moment,
He glanced at it and saw it was Paul, he picked the call and placed it on Gus ear,
“David, I called to announce to you that Richærd just gave up his ghost not long ago” Paul voice sounded making David fling off his phone in shock,
“No oo it can’t happen, Richærd is dead? no no..” David lamented with a teary eyes while Clara flopped down the couch exhausted, her heart was pained, her body shuddered in great fright, this Is what she feared so much, it is true that Richærd was not fit her but she still loved him with passion and would never want anything to happen to him, hearing the death of Richærd really made her feel down, she felt bittered, she could not just imagine that after everything he has passed through for Sandra, he couldn’t stay alive to spend a blissful time with her, she felt sorry for Sandra because she knew that Sandra would never be the same again after hearing of the news,
tears rolled down her eyes as all these thought flooded through her memory, if there was anything she could do to bring Richærd back she was ready to do it but there is none, she isn’t a god..
“let’s go to that hospital” David beckoned to Clara who quickly stood up without hesitation,
“Chief Gabriel, I promise you death if I later found out that truly Richærd is dead” David said bitterly while Chief Gabriel just smiled broadly
chief Daniel and his wife were driving down to the hospital to check on their son and daughter health which they prayed should not be harmed, they were still driving when Daniel’s phone rang, he picked it up and placed it across his ear without looking at the caller
“Richærd is dead!” a voice sounded making Daniel brought down the phone to his view in haste, it was a number unsaved,
“what did you just said!!” chief Daniel barked in the phone in confusion
“sir, I said Richærd is dead, he just died few seconds ago..”
Marie scre-med loudly in deep pain, what she heard pierced through her heart like a sword, Richærd is dead.. this is something that they least expected,
hot tears gushed down chief Daniel’s eyes, his heart became heavy with pain, hie can his heir die just like that? what is then the essence of finding his son after many years if he wouldn’t have the chance to live happily with him, if he had knew that this was what would result after going for that mission to save Sandra, he would have restricted him from going, Richærd was someone he loved so much, losing him would make his life meaningless, he could not put focus on the car he was driving anymore and that made him nearly collided with a big truck, people around there were yelling at him for not concentrating on the car he was driving but he just lend them deaf ear, if he has even had that accident and died, it would be better for him because living without his beloved son is just like being dead,
Marie on the other hand couldn’t just stop wailing on top of her voice, she felt at fault for abandoning him for so long, losing him now made her depressed and deeply pained, why now that she wanted to make up her wrong by showering on him the motherly love he had been derived from many years in his life, she felt like dying, her heart was bleeding In great pain and despair, the more she cries, the more she feels bitter,
at last, they got to the hospital, after parking the car at the car park, they both alighted in much speed rushing to the hospital building, clara and David who had just arrived at the same time with them was also rushing into the building behind them,
Sandra eyes was shut but she wasn’t dead, tears was dripping off her eyes nutcase wasn’t crying, her heart was beating but she was motionless, the excruciating pain she was feeling in her heart couldn’t give her the strength to make a movement, she could hear her mother calling her but still she couldn’t get the might to answer her, Richærd her first love is dead? so so ridiculous, how can he be dead after saving her..what Is the meaning of dying for her, now that she is alive and he is dead what Is the gain, who would she spend her life with.. her heart was locked into his own, there was no way she would ever fall in love with any other man if not Richærd…
“Oh no ooo Richærd you are not dead!!!!!!” Sandra scre-med out and jolted off from the bed removing every pin or syringe connected to her body speeding out of the door like someone under the influence of an evil spirit,
She pushed open the door with great force and rushed out but just then she crashed into the doctor, Chief Daniel, Marie, Clara and David who was just about to enter her ward,
“Hey girl where are you..” the doctor made to inquire but couldn’t complete his statement as Sandra wasn’t any where near to him again, she had hastily stood up and sped off to Richærds ward which left everyone shocked at how she knew the ward Richærd was admitted,
Sandra ran into the ward like a psychotic patient heading to the bed Richærd was, two nurses were covering his body with a white wrapper but Sandra quickly rushed to them and flinged off the wrapper before pushing off the nurses from her way,
Sandra peered gaze on her Richærd’s face deeply, his eyes were tight shut and his wh0le body was stiffed, Sandra found her wh0le body quivering with great fear, she stared at Richærd still finding it hærd to believe he was dead,
Her eyes which was covered with tears made it sparkle, with a broken heart and soul she called out Richærd’s name but there wasn’t a reply or a movement from him,
She smiled out tears then sat on the bed beside him,
“Richærd, I know you are not dead but must be in deep slumber, the Richærd I knew and fell in love with can never die at this time, not when we haven’t create a baby of our own, bit when we haven’t made love, but when we haven’t we’d if engage, Richærd since I had been with you, you haven’t for once ignore my call, anytime I call upon you, you have never hesitate to answer, you have always been beside me as if your life depended on it, out of my miserable life you took me and made me feel happy and excited, you taught what love is all about, day by day, you never made me cry, you have never for once give me the cause to feel hurt..Richærd I know you passed through great pain and suffering just to save me but it is meaningless if you save me only to die now that we have to begin our lives together in bliss..”Sandra paused then held Richærd’s hand,
“Day and night, you made me fully convinced that you love me from the depth of your heart, you made me know that I’m your breath which you can’t do without, every day of my life, you fill my ear with your passionate words which always leave blushing, I felt glad that you are mine, my l-ips was always crooked in a smile because anytime I remember that you are mine, I feel on top of the world, you are a man after every woman’s dream, I had never for once stop loving you but I think you don’t love at all, for you to die leaving me alone in this world shows that you don’t care for me, it shows you are never serious In spending the rest of your life with me.. Richærd so this moment I’ve came to realize that all those words you said to me was just for nothing, i can’t believe you never loved me, you are lying here dead without ever having any s€× with me, we have no bond, I thought you said you will never leave me, why do you want to break that promise, why?!! Richærd this is the time to show me if you really love me, this moment is time.. all over my body is eloped with excruciating pain, but I ignored it all just to stay strong here with you, because I love you, u never allowed death to depart us, now I want the same thing from you, Richærd with a broken heart filled with passion, love, compassion and affection, I call out your name and I know you won’t snub me…”
“Richærd!!!!!!” Sandra’s voice echoed around the wh0le building, her voice was cracked bit audible, there were tears in her eyes and and get countenance showed pain…
Just immediately Sandra scre-med out Richærd’s name. his eyes fluttered, and to the shock of everyone Richærd someone who had been dead sneezed loudly and opened his eyes,
Sandra’s eyes w¡dened in inexplicable happiness, her joy has no bound, she could feel her heart leap in immeasurable excitement,
“Richærd I know you can’t ignore my call” Sandra cooed then k-ssed him deeply in his l-ips and just immediately, the sound of clap and scre-m of joy filled the ward,
all these while Sandra has been with Richærd both the doctors, Marie, Chief Daniel, Clara, Paul, Lucy, Joy, Cole, David had been at the corner watching them silently and on seeing Richærd came back to life they couldn’t control their emotions as they all scre-med and clapped their hands in unending joy,
Sandra averted her gaze to them in surprised, she never knew thier was any other person in the ward all these while,
A broad smile escaped her l-ips as she saw everyone looking at them with their eyes glistened with unshedded tears, they were all in an emotional state on hearing all Sandra said to Richærd, everyone of them sensed a genuine love between Sandra and Richærd, there was no doubt they were meant to be..
Richærd struggled up from his lying state to a sitting position, his gaze was on everyone as he tried recalling their faces,
Sandra was beside him and on her shoulder was where he leaned his head,
“Did he just come back to life?” the doctors asked among themselves,
“Ohhh God, this is a real description of love”
“Thier love brought him back to life”
“This kind of love is really scarce”
“I don’t think anyone can depart this two heart”
“They are born to be together, no one can put asunder”
all these words was what filled the air, everyone was amazed at what happened,
“Richærd why did you wanted to leave me?” Sandra asked Richærd in a calm tone
“I’m sorry, I never meant to hurt, I must be a real fool to allow myself succ-mb to the pain I was feeling then..thanks for bringing me back to life” Richærd replied in a low tone as his l-ips formed a bright smile,
“I can’t do without you..i love you so so much Richie” Sandra mumbled with tears of joy
“yeah, I can’t also do without you.. if I would die, then we are both going to the grave together because I would never want to spend any minute of my life without you” Richærd said and k-ssed Sandra’s l-ips,
Just then someone drew Sandra away from Richærd’s k-ss,
turning to the person, Sandra found it to be Paul,
“what is it?!!” Sandra asked him in tears,
“shut up girl!!! you are mine and not Richærd!!” he yelled at her after winking to Richærd, Richærd got the message and stayed calm,
“Richærd are you leaving him to take me” Sandra said with tears,
“you both are meant for each other okay? so follow him” Richærd said and Sandra felt like dying,
“shhhh” Paul hushed her placing his index finger on her l-ips,
“Now everyone listen up!!!!!” Paul shout out to the crowd which had already formed in the ward,
Sandra was trying to struggle off her hand from Paul’s grip but it seem fruitless,
“I want to make this clear to everyone here” Paul continued
“I had always hated Richærd so much because he was a barrier to me from getting this lady Sandra to myself.. I always wanted him dead silent I would make Sandra mine, but you know when two heart are created to make up each other, there is no way anyone thing or anyone could detach them.. what I’m saying Is this.. from this moment, I’ve fully withdrew from any kind of act to depart these two souls and it doesn’t ends there, from this moment, I stand like a shield to them, anyone who wants to bring asunder inbetween them would have to kill me first because I’ll never allow him succeed.. so at this point, I hand Sandra to Richærd, they would be one forever!!” Paul concluded then took Richærd hand and locked it with Sandra’s own..
This made lots scre-m erupt the wh0le building a second time,
Sandra smiled sweetly and hugged Richærd before turning to Paul,
“Thank you” Sandra muttered to him before hugging him tightly.
