My woman episode 9
Amelia: “Sam, I want you to do something for me”
Dr Sam: “Ok… What it is you want me to do?”
Amelia: “Well, it’s a bit complicated. Give me your word first”
Dr. Sam: “Hmmmn, you have my word”
Amelia: “Good. It’s about that girl we brought here… your patient, Brenda. I want you to paralyse her!”
Sam was taken aback… Amelia was asking him to deliberately hurt someone. He was curious as to why but first, he needed to get over the shock of her request.
Dr Sam: “Seriously?! Amelia, that is totally against the ethics of my profession. Sorry, I can’t do it”
Amelia: “Sam, you gave me your word”
Dr. Sam: “Yes, because never in my wildest dreams would have imagined you’d ask something like this of me”
Meanwhile, Dave was led to Brenda’s ward. She was lying down when he got there. He could see that the accident had a great impact on her. He went closer to her bed and took her hand.
Brenda opened her eyes to look at him. She smiled and told him she missed him. Dave advised her not to talk too much so she could conserve her energy. She, however, continued
Brenda:”I saw my Father and Amelia. I stood there, right in front of them”
Dave: “Brenda, there is a way out of this. Just please get well first baby”
Brenda: “I know my love. Initially, I was very disturbed about this thing with my dad. But now I realize that it doesn’t matter what Amelia has told my Dad. I know him better than her. I know how he trusts me… I will simply tell him everything”
Dave: “Get well first my love. He is your father, he will understand you”
Brenda was feeling sleepy, Dave stayed with her until she fell asleep.
He decided to man up and confront her father with the whole story right away.
Dave thought that by doing that, he could save Brenda the stress so she could concentrate on recuperating.
Back at the Doctors office…
Sam had decided to oblige Amelia her ridiculous request… He had secretly admired this girl from a distance for a very long time. Now he had a chance to actually be with her, he wasn’t going to blow it. He was going to find a way to accommodate her insane request.
Dr. Sam: “Ok. I will do it Amelia. Only because I want to be with you”
Amelia:”Thank you Sam, I have something for you. How about me coming to your place tonight?”
Dr. Sam: “That will be a great idea, I will give you call as soon as I get home.”
Amelia gave him another intense kiss before she left. As soon as she left the hospital, she called Mr. Edwards to meet her up at the hotel were they usually meet so she can give him the news.
Mrs. Edwards overhead the conversation… She was so sure her husband was talking to a lady. She also overheard them scheduling a meeting. Again, she decided to secretly follow him when the time was due.
Dave came out of Brenda’s ward to see her Father.
“Mr Wilson, I have something I need to discuss with you about Brenda.” Dave said
Mr Wilson : “Ok young man, go ahead. I’m all ears”
Dave: “I am close friends with your daughter. I’m aware that you didn’t know about her stay in Ghana. That can be explained sir. Your daughter is a very good person with a pure heart, not all you have heard or seen may be true. All I ask is that you listen to her side of the story. She’ll try to explain everything as soon as gets back on her feet. She really loves you as her father and would not do anything to disappoint you”
Mr Wilson was very attentive as he Dave poured out his heart for Brenda. He knew the guy was in love with his daughter.
Mr Wilson: I appreciate your courage in talking to me. I have singlehandedly raised my daughter to be very responsible and I trust her. Even with all I have heard, I remain objective until I hear her own side of the story. Once again, I appreciate your effort”
With that out of the way, the two men got comfortable with each other as they waited patiently to see Brenda.
Amelia and Mr. Edwards had already gotten to the hotel and were getting comfortable. Amelia told him what she had discovered about Brenda’s real identity and her relationship with Mr Wilson. She, however, left out the part about the accident and how she intended to have Brenda paralyzed.
They both had a good laugh…
Mr Edwards was quite impressed. He offered to give Amelia a good massage for a job well done and for getting it done within the shortest possible time.
She stripped down to her underwear and Mr Edwards began massaging her back… Her heart was racing and every stroke of his hand pleasured her. She was in her seventh heaven when Mrs Edwards suddenly barged into the hotel room.
Amelia quickly wriggled out of the bed and hurriedly dressed up but Mrs Edwards’ attention was not even on her… She was focused on her husband. She had finally caught him red-handed, confirming she hadn’t been paranoid all the while she’d been suspicious.
Mrs Edwards was very hurt. She was the one practically taking care of the family… even the house they lived in belonged to her late Father.
“My dear wife, I’m really sorry, it’s the devil… Please forgive me” Mr. Edwards begged
Mrs Edwards: “I clothed you; put you under my roof because as old as you are you can’t even afford a house of your own. All you do is spend your money on this little thing (pointing her hand at Amelia who was hastily dressing up).”
Amelia: “Woman deal with your husband and not me, abeg”.
Having said that, she chuckled and quickly left the hotel to avoid any public drama/embarrassment. Mrs Edwards on the other hand warned her husband to never step foot in her house again. She told him to go look for shelter with someone else. She further assured him that she was going to seek for divorce.
She took off her wedding rings and threw them at his face. Next, she took Mr. Edwards’ car keys; his wallet, containing his ATM card and some money. Finally, she yanked his shirt and trousers, leaving him with only the boxer short he had on.
She left the hotel room and only God knows what happened to Mr. Edwards.
As soon as Amelia got to her apartment, Sam called her to come to his place. She quickly set off and in no time was at his house. They spent the night together and she did things that made Dr Sam fall in love with her even more. She, however, kept stressing that she could only date him if he executed the plans against Brenda.
Dr. Sam: ” If I may ask, why do you want to do such a thing to an innocent looking girl?”
“You call that one an innocent girl?! Trust me, that girl is capable of anything you can think of. She actually was my best friend but she was always very jealous and vengeful. I mean, the girl went as far as attempting to poison me because of a guy! Thank God I’m still alive today.” Amelia told a blatant lie against Brenda.
Dr. Sam had fallen deeply in love with Amelia so her story only made him more protective of her. He decided to execute the plan as soon as he got back to the hospital.
The following day, Dave and Mr Wilson who had both spent the night at the hospital finally got the chance to see Brenda. It was early that morning, as soon as Dr. Sam arrived.
Brenda was feeling much better and apologized to her father for her relocating to Ghana without his knowledge.
Mr. Wilson insisted that Brenda should concentrate on her wellbeing first and that they could talk about everything after her discharge.
After a long chat with Brenda and Dave at her ward, Mr Wilson asked to be taken to the Doctor’s Office. He had a few things on his mind he wanted to discuss. The Nurse led him to the office.
The Nurse led him to the office. They innocently walked in on Dr. Sam who was in an awkward position with Amelia. She had arrived shortly before Mr. Wilson asked to be shown to Sam’s office.
Amelia who was seated on Sam’s legs sprang up when Mr. Wilson entered with the nurse.
She didn’t like the idea of Brenda’s father seeing them together. She felt that their plans had been exposed.
Little did she know that Mr. Wilson wasn’t even bothered about what relationship existed between her and the Doctor. All he wanted was for his daughter to be alright. Amelia’s conscience had adjudged her guilty.
She left the office hurriedly and upon reaching the exit point of the OPD, she slipped and fell badly. Her head hit the hard surface of the tiled floor and she immediately started bleeding from her nostrils.
The nurses around quickly ran to Amelia’s side… She was unconscious. They quickly got a stretcher and wheeled her into the very same ward where Brenda was admitted.
She was placed on a bed next to Brenda. Of course, Dave and Brenda saw her. One would think they would have gloated and torn her apart but they didn’t. Despite the fact that Amelia was never good to them, they appeared to be very concerned about whatever had happened to her. Dave was asked to wait outside as they attended to Amelia.
The impact of the fall on Amelia was worse than the doctors had imagined. She began to convulse and someone sent for Dr. Sam. He rushed into the intensive care unit where Amelia was. The flexible metal spoon that had been shoved in between her teeth by the nurses was giving way as the medical team shuffled around to attend to her. They didn’t notice when she breathed her last. They tried to revive her but Amelia was dead.
Dr. Sam’s head spun. How was it that within the space of one hour the lady who kissed him and promised him an eventful night fell slightly and died? He was shocked.
Meanwhile in Brenda’s ward, the nurse had administered her follow-up dosage of injection ordered by Dr. sam before he found himself in the ICU attending to Amelia whose body was now ice cold. Brenda too was in trouble. one of the injections already administered to her was the dosage meant to paralyze her. Dave got into the ward and saw a version of Brenda he had never imagined. She couldn’t move a limb. Dave screamed for help and the nurses responded hurriedly. They couldn’t explain what had happened to Brenda. She had to be transferred to the ICU as well, where she later went into a coma.
Dave was informed by the attending doctor that Brenda had shockingly gone from being traumatized to being brain dead. Brenda’s father fell down and wept profusely upon hearing the news. What sort of ill luck had befallen them?
That day was indeed a very dramatic one at that hospital. But time flies and maybe heals some hurts.
It’s been six months now. Brenda’s pregnancy had to be terminated due to her state but she eventually pulled through the coma after four months. It was a miracle!
No one ever came forward to claim Amelia’s body. She was finally buried alongside other unclaimed corpses rotting away in the government morgue where she was deposited by her never-to-be boyfriend Sam.
Mr. Edwards, on the other hand, was now living from hand to mouth. He had tried to win back the heart of his wife but was not successful. For a while, he lived with friends who kicked him out once they had had enough of him being a burden. Of course, he had no job. His wife had blackmailed him and the University authorities wasted no time in dismissing him.
When he could no longer cope with life in the city, he decided to go back to his hometown to start all over again. He is now a small-scale farmer in the midst of a drought.
Dr. Sam went to prison. He fled the hospital after realizing that his evil had been uncovered. The hospital had traced the injection order which put Brenda in a coma back to him… He was hunted down and arrested. He bagged himself a 4-year jail term after prosecution. His medical license was siezed so he also will never be able to practice medicine again.
And me? I have decided to start minding my business.
