“Why are you standing here? You don’t mind i drop you off? She asked.

“Oh that will be good of you, thanks, he said.
“Don’t mention, please come in, she said and they got into the car together.

While driving the man noticed she was yawning with her eyes closing,
“Hey, I noticed you’ve been drinking. Are you sure we are going to arrive safely? The man asked.

“Sorry I had some bottles of drink already, she slowly replied.
“Please I beg you just pull over alright, I’ll take over the steering, the man said and she nodded and parked…………………

Priscilla already fell asleep while he was driving and his phone began to ring,
“What the hell man, i’ve been standing there for ages, he picked up.
“I’m so so sorry something came up. Have you gone already? The caller asked.

“Yea but the situation is messy Now. I’m driving a drunk woman to the hotel, she picked me up while waiting for you, he replied.
“Wow so you will check in the hotel with her? Lucky you, the caller said laughing.

“You’re crazy, I’ll call you back, he said and dropped the call and turned to see Priscilla dozing off.

He arrived at a hotel and quickly met the receptionist,
“Hi you’re welcome, the young lady said.
“Thank you, actually I’m kind of in a little mess right now. I’m with a drunk sleeping woman inside the car and she wanted checking in a hotel before she slept off. If you don’t mind can I book a room? He asked and she looked confused.

“Ermm a minute please….security, she called out and a man on uniform approached her.
“Please can you follow him outside to check if the woman is sleeping or dead. I’m so sorry i have to do this, I hope you understand? she asked and he nodded.

“Sure i do thanks, let’s go, the man said and left with the security quickly outside to check out Priscilla.
She was confirmed drunk and booked a room for.
“Thanks beautiful, the man said to the receptionist after carrying her in.

“You’re welcome, and please take good care of her, she replied and he rolled his eyes going back to the room.
He heaved looking at her and slammed his head,
“next time mind your business, he said and turned on the television.

Few minutes later a headline popped up on the news,
“Miss Natasha, the queen of the bridge institution who died last night in a suicide attempt. Her friends allegedly reported to the cops saying her mom confessed stabbing the Late Natasha last night and claimed it to be suicide. Right now Priscilla which photo is displayed on the screen fled from her residence immediately after the confession, she is being needed now and if found please call the number on the screen, the reporter read.

“Are you kidding me?Now i see why she was in a hurry, but What am i going to do now?The man asked looking at Priscilla and paced around confused.
Few minutes later he heard a knock on the door and saw the receptionist and the security looking at him,

“I guess you know why we are here because you just listened to the news. Its either you hand her over or you leave the hotel peacefully, she said.
“Please listen i don’t know her from anywhere, you can do with her as you want because i am leaving here this instant, he said.

“Not too fast, you will wait for the cops to arrive then tell them how you ended up with her, the security said.
“Yes, and they are on their way as we speak. I am very sorry, the receptionist said and his eyes bulged out…………….


Episode 38

Priscilla opened her eyes the next morning and felt a slight headache. She tried getting up and found out her hands were chained to the bed,
“Who is here! What is going on? Let me go! She shouted struggling with the chains and the door opened.


eyes bulged out when she saw the cops, Mabel and Lydia and Arthur entering.
“How did I get here and why am I chained? Priscilla asked.

“I told them just what you told us in your drunken state, Mabel replied and Priscilla smiled.
“You said it yourself I was drunk, are you now taking a drunk person words into heart? She asked.

“At that state a drunk tells the truth easily without being forced. In fact they are they most sincere persons to get fact from, a cop replied.
“You are saying rubbish! What makes you think I can kill my daughter at all? Have you all gone nuts or something? Priscilla shouted.

“But she isn’t your daughter, a woman said coming into the room and Priscilla was shocked to see her.
“What are you doing here? She asked.

“I saw the news and I wondered why you should end that innocent girl life I gave you in the orphanage. What did she ever do to you? The woman asked and Priscilla was in full rage.
“Get me out of here, I didn’t kill my daughter no matter what you all may say. I love Natasha whether biological or not! Priscilla shouted.

“Good one there, we are just back from the mortuary she is kept and the wounds has been examined. Everything at first was suspicious but we didn’t want to go into the matter since you claimed she committed suicide and you quickly handed her body to the mortuary before anyone could arrive. We have checked out the wounds, and guess what, it is deep, very deep that a young girl like Natasha won’t be that heartless to pin the knife that deep into her heart and expanding it. That wasn’t a suicide, and I see why you quickly gave her to the mortuary and sealed their mouth with money when they wanted asking why the wound is that deep and wide. Gosh! That girl has practically grown up with you for years and made you enjoy the privilege to be called a mother. No matter the mistakes she has made that made you feel disappointed in her, how did you feel stabbing her in her sleep? The cop asked and Priscilla was quiet.

“Priscilla, right now the liters of blood in me has been reduced when I returned from the mortuary this morning. You practically refused us from seeing her yesterday and send us out in anger when Marks challenged you. When i saw the news yesterday I was mad with whoever gave such report that you can stab Natasha, and right now I am so disappointed, Arthur said with his hands folded looking at Priscilla whose face was bathed with tears already.

“Please forgive me, I didn’t know what I was thinking, she said.
“Unchain her and take her away, a cop said and she was taken out.

On the way going out they met with Theodore, Daniel and Jennifer entering,
“You witch! How dare you do that to her, how dare you! Theodore held her violently immediately he saw her.

“Stop it young man! A cop shouted separating him from her.
“You will surely pay for this, you won’t get away with this, Theodore said and she was taken away.

“Theo please take it easy, Jenny said holding him..
“Why should I! I was busy thinking she ended her own life out of pride not knowing it wasn’t true, i can’t help but feel guilty knowing that I said harsh words to her peaceful soul. How can human be this heartless! Theodore shouted.

“Calm down bro, you have nothing to do with this please take it easy, Daniel said but Theodore was already crying………………..

The news was aired and there was a live broadcast of Priscilla as she confessed in court to be guilty;

Please I am begging each and everyone of you to have mercy on me, I know what i did to Natasha is unforgivable. Its not because she isn’t my biological daughter but I love her so much and I am still her mother………… “Drop it! Tell the people how and why you got Natasha killed, a cop interrupted her.

“Years ago I fell in love with my boss, I threw my self on him and he gave in without stress. I found out I was pregnant and told him about it, but he paid me a lot of money telling me to abort the baby saying he’s not interested. I refused because I loved my baby and I thought keeping my baby will make him bring me to his house. But I had a miscarriage and I didn’t want to give up, I faked the pregnancy putting on clothes in my tummy to still make it real till i was 9 months. I went to my friend who works in the hospital to arrange a baby for me but she couldn’t rather she referred me to the orphanage saying her friend works there.
We went there together and found out a baby girl was dumped outside the gate of the orphanage, probably from a teenage mother.
She was just 4days old and I gladly took her, I visited my boss but he clearly told me he doesn’t have any business with the baby i am carrying. He gave me another huge sum of money and told me never to show my face to him again, I felt horrible seeing the stress and everything I took for him was all in vain. But then Natasha was too adorable to be thrown away, I decided to keep her as a replacement to my lost.
I wanted so much for her and i wanted her to achieve more in life. But then she disappointed me, when I heard the harsh and disgraceful words people threw at her in the hall when Jennifer name was cleared, I was equally dragged into the insults from people and was so pained.
I didn’t train Natasha to be a loser or a soft girl. I was mad when She came back home crying like a baby saying she can’t carry on anymore, I tried calming her down but she wasn’t responding. She slept off without eating and I felt like she has given up in life already, I wanted easing her pain, I thought that was the best thing to do please forgive me, Priscilla cried and everyone there screamed.

“You cut her short because Natasha finally resorted not to live her life to your own will. She was my best friend, and i can testify she lived her life to whatever you said or wanted, she made no decision of herself. Probably you wanted her to continue with the fight with Jennifer because you didn’t want her to be a loser and she refused, you decided to end her life huh? You are wicked beast! Theodore shouted and attempted to hold her but he was restrained.

“Please i am so sorry, I killed my daughter yes I killed her but i don’t know what came over me, please forgive me! Priscilla cried out………………….

2 days later Natasha funeral was held, the student of The Bridge institution couldn’t stop crying as they gathered round her casket on black holding roses.

“Rest in peace our queen. If you were trained by a good and loving mother in a right way, sure you will have been a good and great queen. Too bad you were cut short, but you’ll always be remembered as the only queen in The Bridge who reigned for 3 years. The department of Mass communication misses you, The Bridge Institution misses you, the modeling world misses you, farewell Natasha, Arthur said dropping a rose on her casket as the student dropped theirs one after the other.

“I’m sorry Natasha, right now I don’t know what to say. But i wish you never left, please forgive me if have hurt you in any way, Damian said dropping a rose and left and Theodore slowly stepped forward.

“I thought i should give this back to you, seeing it keeps hurting me. This was a sign of our friendship, although you wanted it to be forever but but but……. Forgive me Natasha if I’ve let you down in any way. Thanks for being a true friend Darling, rest in peace, Theodore said in tears and dropped the Wrist watch she gave to him on his birthday before they broke up…………….

“I want to go see my daughter funeral please let me go! Priscilla kept shouting and hitting the gates.
“Hey will you stop disturbing our peace! One of the jail inmate shouted on her.

“You keep your mouth shut also bitch and mind your business! Hey some one get me out of here, i want to see my daughter! Priscilla shouted.
“Did you just say that to me huh? The woman she shouted on approached her.

“So what will you do huh? Priscilla asked and the woman smiled.
“You mean what i can do huh? The woman asked and slammed Priscilla head hard on the gate and she fell bleeding with her head badly cut………………..
