I kept smiling, seeing my son in love with that girl. Christabel really made my son fall in love.
‘I was about telling her my plans on Richærd but it cleared off my mind, but she did that without me telling her the plans ‘
‘Can’t wait for my grandchildren ‘ I thought and took a sip of my juice.
“Honey, you have been smiling like you won a trip to Dubai, what’s it ?” my husband jerked me out of thought.
“it nothing dear, am just smiling or shouldn’t I do that ” This time I was grinning so hærd.
“Really, now you are grinning really hærd, just hope your teeth won’t fall out ” he said.
I gave him a hærd glare that cause him to laugh and we both ended up laughing.
I laughed my ass out ” christabel, you think this plans can work on linda?”
She nodded “Yeah, but let just pray it worked out perfectly ” she said, wearily.
“OK, plan A is very good so as plan B, we need to buy a voice recorder, a small speaker and you record your voice in a scary way and place it in her room” I explained.
“Yes, that’s it but you know I won’t be coming to your house ”
“Why not stay with my parents? ”
“Okay, am going to tell my parents then, that I would be staying with your parents ”
I bought the voice recorder and the speaker immediately then, I went back to the hospital for christabel to record her voice.
‘This girl is just too funny ‘ I recorded the voice and truly, it really look like a ghost’s voice.
“You are perfect in every thing you do ” I saw her blush and I gave her a peck on her l-ips and walked out.
I got home and met linda setting the food on the dinning table, I quickly used that opportunity to go to her room.
I looked around the room and saw her wardrobe, I climbed the chair which was beside me and placed both the voice recorder and the speaker on top of her wardrobe.
I connected the wires together and thank God the items were small and black in colour. I pushed it deep down so it will be hærd to see.
I quickly ran out of the room so I won’t get caught.
I changed into something simple and find my way to the living room.
“Richærd, have set the dinning come eat ” she said, smiling sed-ctively.
I rolled my eyes on her then the food ‘who knows if she had poison the food? ‘
I can’t eat that food that looks like dog’s food. I walked past her to the kitchen and began cooking noodles for myself.
“Richærd, why do you have to cook noodles when a better food is here ”
I gave her no response and soon she became tired of standing and went to her room.
“Why don’t you eat the food? ” I mumbled, with my mouth filled with noodles.
I ate my food, took out my phone and smiled.
‘I had connected the voice recorder to my phone all I need is to wait till the right time ‘
I got to my room and sat on the bed ‘I don’t know why he ignored me and even the food! whatever, I don’t blame him and am sure he’s still thinking of that witch. That’s serves him right. ‘
At night… I changed into my night gown and lay down on my bed, I turned off the lamp and slept off.
I heard a voice which made me flinched. “Who’s there? ” I looked round the room but saw nothing, I turned on the lamp.
The voice continued and stopped again then continue, this time it spoke out.
“Linda, what’s my offence? why do you kill me? ” That’s christabel’s voice, I was sweating profusely already.
Her ghost! she’s trying to kill me! if I had known I wouldn’t have kill her ‘
“You are going to choose one of this options which is either I kill you or you confess to everyone ”
Confess? if not I will die, oh God! what have I done? ‘
I couldn’t move from my bed but in a minute I flew to the door and to open it but it was locked.
‘Am finished! in fact over finished ‘
“Richærd, please help me open this door, I need to tell you something ” The voice had stopped and the door opened almost immediately.
I hid behind richærd’s back and popped my head out a little. “There’s a ghost in my room ” I said in a frighten way.
“Ghost? wait is it christabel’s voice? ” he turned back to me and I nodded.
He laughed “what did she say? “This time he was looking serious.
“She.. said.. I should confess … or I die ” I stammered.
‘I don’t want to die! let me just confess it and be free ‘
“Richærd, this is hærd to say but it like you won over this case. I.. I.. I.. killed.. christabel, I mean sent the assassins to take christabel’s life ” I was facing down, I can’t face the anger that would be on his face.
‘I can’t believe I confessed so easily like that, am not like this ‘
“You did what! Linda repeat yourself ” he bought out his phone and placed it in a recording way.
I breathed in and out heavily, ” I killed Christabel cause I can’t bear her take you away from me, am sorry richærd. please forgive me”
“I knew it from the start that you are a devil, how can you send assassins to kill your fellow human. Too bad you are gonna rot in jail ” he stuck his phone back into his pocket and walked out.
‘Maybe if I just kidnap her and take her far away from this country or better still beat her to stupor that richærd won’t see the beauty in her. she would feel rejected in front of him’

I burst into laughter when I got to my room, the plan really work perfectly, in fact so fast!
‘ I thought linda was a brave girl and she never give up on anything, but she surprised me!
Am getting her arrested tomorrow morning but I need those assassins.
in the morning….
The police had come to take Linda and she was asked to lead them to the assassins’ home and she did.
we arrested both linda and the assassins and will be taken to court on Monday.
I felt happy, I got to christabel in the hospital and told her news. she felt happy, she told me she would be visiting her in the court as a surprise to her.
“Richy, we will suing her for attempt murder and not murder ”
“Have been thinking of that too, maybe two years or five years imprisonment is okay”
“Yeah, I can’t wait to get out of this hospital, am becoming tired of it, am strong enough to go home ” she pouted her mouth.
“Don’t worry, you will soon go home, just be patient okay?” I said and she nodded.
‘Am going to end my life in jail ‘ I thought as I held one of the iron rods which was used as a boundary between me and the assassins.
“Linda, see what you cause now, you don succeed in sending me to jail ” one of men called tommy spoke out.
“Me wey say I dey hustle on my own, nah you people con say make I join una group.
Say e go bring better money, see wetin end am, chaii greediness no good oo ” Another boy said.
“We you shut up, una never know how many years imprisonment una spend for jail, you are talking rubbish ”
I sat down on the floor and didn’t know what to say.
Days rolled by and soon it was on Friday.
Every one had came to see me even some staff from richærd’s company came too.
They bought a wheelchair in front of me and I frowned my face.
“What’s this for? ” I asked, rolling my eyes on the wheel chair.
“Cause of your condition, the doctor said you will have to use the wheel chair for sometime ” my mom said.
“Mom, I wasn’t shot in my legs, how can you expect me to use a wheelchair.
Mom to show you that I can walk with my legs, see this ” I stood up, on my feet and walked a little though I was still feeling the pain but it not really like before.
“Honey, why don’t you let me give you a help while you walk ” my eyes went directly to my parents to see their reactions but they were smiling at me.
‘He just called me honey in front of my parents, I still have to tell them about my relationsh¡p with richærd though he haven’t ask me out yet’ He noticed me and laughed softly.
“I told them my love for you and they gave me a go ahead ”
“When did you do that cause I was about telling them soon ” I faced him.
“I did that the same day I got Linda arrested, am sorry I didn’t inform you ”
“There’s nothing to worry Christabel, we give you our blessings ” my dad said.
“we give you our blessings too sweethearts, so let’s go home and celebrate, christabel’s return ” Richærd’s mom said.
I walked myself out of the hospital with richærd’s support, we got to the car and drove home.
Richærd’s dad got the door opened, everywhere was dark.
“why is everywhere dark?” But I got no response.
Suddenly, the lights went on and I gasped in surprise. “Welcome back christabel ”
I turned my head and saw about 10 more people in,side, some were holding a welcome card.
I walked in,side smiling happily, they really had to decorate the house for the welcome party.
“Christabel!! ” someone yelled my name and I turned to see whose feminine’s voice is that.
“Hannah!! oh my God! ” I spread my hands for her to hug me.
“How are you? you have grown so big l she said, scanning my body.
“Same as you, when did you come back? ”
“Well, I came back on Wednesday and I decided to visit you at home but your father told me you’re working and you aren’t living here.
They told me what happened to you. I asked where I can see you and he told me he and your mother will be throwing a welcoming party here for you so I followed them here ” she said, grinning widely.
Hannah was a friend of mine, we both went to the same secondary school and same university.
She’s an easy going girl but if you look for her trouble, she’s going to give you hers.
“Attention everyone ” A man said and we turned to him.
“As we all know why we are in this party and that’s to welcome our princess home, miss christabel ” The man added and I blushed within.
“Thank you so much, I don’t really have much to say. First, I will like to thank God for making me alive till now.
secondly, I will like to thank everyone especially richærd, my parents and richærd’s parents for their care since I was in the hospital.
God bless you all ” I said, and they clapped.
I scan everywhere for richærd with my eyes but I couldn’t see him.
‘Where did he go? ‘ The lights went off again and there was silence every where, no one was talking.
Then, it went on again “Christabel ” I heard my name and turned back to see richærd kneeling on one knee and to crown it all, he was holding a bouquet of roses in his hands.
“Richærd, what are you doing? ” I whispered, tears were about to fall from my eyes.
‘Why did I want to cry? ‘
“Christabel, it about time you make me the happiest person in the world if you say yes, will you be my lady?” he said, with smiles plastered on his face.
“Are you saying I should be your girlfriend? ” I just want to be sure maybe am still in the hospital dreaming, and he nodded.
Tears finally came down from my eyes ” yes… yes, I will be your girlfriend richærd ” I answered and he stood up smiling and gave me an emotional k-ss. I collected the roses and everyone clapped in happiness.
