💖🌹 Episode 08 💖🌹
Paulina stared at the middle aged man and wondered if she had meet him before. Even the doctor could see the confusion in Paulina’s face.
“Do you know her sir?” The doctor Entered. And Collins nodded in acceptance. Paulina kept staring closely at Collins, his face was familiar too but still she couldn’t remember who he was. “Do I know you?” Paulina finally entered.
“I’m uncle Collins, your Father’s best friend, the last time I saw you, your mother was hospitalized, do you remember me now?” Collins entered.
“Oh of course I remembered, I was there at the hospital when you gave my mom a brown envelope containing some cash, thanks to you, we were able to eat good meals for few weeks” Paulina replied and Collins stared at her in tears.
“Uncle,What are you doing here?” Paulina entered.
“My friend is critically ill” Collins responded.
“Oh I see, so your friend is the man that needs emergency surgery on his blocked artery? Paulina asked innocently.
“Yes my friend…..your father” Collins revealed.
“What? My Father? You can’t be serious right? No I can’t do this? I can’t save a man that abandoned me and my siblings, a man who abandoned my mother, we suffered alot, even worst he tricked us, he made us believe that he was dead, I can’t do this please, I’m going back to Lagos right now” Paulina entered in tears.
“My child, please don’t go, I returned to Lagos with your father, we searched everywhere but we couldn’t locate your mother or any of you, your father is so sorry, he had no idea of what his brothers had done, they lied to him too and he was a fool to believe them, please forgive him, don’t allow your father die, please find a place in your heart to forgive him” Collins entered he was already on his knees and he held Paulina’s left hand.
Finally Paulina agreed to operate on her father. The doctor played a major role in convincing Paulina as he reminded her of the ethics of their profession.
“Madam, our job is to save life, you have to set your emotions aside and do your job, please I’m begging you” The doctor had told her.
Few hours later the surgery was successful and afterwards, Paulina left for Lagos without saying more words to Collins. When she left, Collins began to look for her every where in the hospital, even the hospital’s staffs had no idea when she left.
Paulina was in tears as she head back to Lagos, she felt angry in her spirit. She kept reminscing on the past. Paulina remembered how much they suffered and how hard their mother worked. She thought on many times that she needed a father and how other children would refer to her and her siblings as “Bastards” because no one knew their father.
The thoughts that their father had abandoned her and her siblings because of their gender and married another woman made her more angry. But suddenly, Collin’s words at the hospital began to echo on her mind.
“your father is so sorry, he had no idea of what his brothers had done, they lied to him too and he was a fool to believe them, please forgive him, don’t allow your father die, please find a place in your heart to forgive him” Collin’s words kept echoing in her mind.
“Is he really sorry? His brothers lied to him, I just don’ t understand all that Uncle Collins said at the hospital” Paulina had thought
Roland was out of danger and when he woke up, Collins told him that her second daughter saved him. Hot tears fell from his eyes.
“I owe her my life and I will do everything possible to reconcile with my daughters, they are more valuable to me than those useless sons of mine, I regret everything that I had done wrong and I’m so ashamed. I have realized that every child can be valuable, irrespective of their gender, my sons will have been valuable too if they had a great mother like Agnes, ever since Agnes left my life, my life had never remained the same, I just hope God will show me Mercy, so I can be able to rewrite my wrongs.” Roland said in tears.
