“I don’t know where I’m going, I don’t know where I am, I don’t know who I am with” she ranted on as she walked. 
 
She saw a wooden house, walked towards it and opened the door. Not waiting for the man, she closed it, locked it with a padlock and held the key . The man waited by the door, holding a small scroll.
 
She walked into the house, looked around like she was searching for something. After a while, she walked back towards the door.

“I can’t find anyone” she said

“Because you are the only one there” the man replied

“Why? Why isn’t  anyone here?” 

“Why? Why did you leave where everyone was?” the man asked in reply
 
The lady breathed in but kept silent. After a while, she talked

“Why aren’t you even coming in?”

“Because you locked me outside, Madison”

MADDY
 
I don’t understand. Why isn’t Nancy here? We only fought, is she now taking it personally?

“So where is Nancy?” I asked the man

“In the beautiful house you left for here” 
 
This doesn’t make any sense

“Why am I here then? It’s not as beautiful as there” I complained

“Because you choose to be” he said

“But I don’t want to be here”

“Then, choose not to be”
 
I took the key and unlocked the door

. Then I tried to open it but it didn’t open. I hit it with my hand, with my body, but it didn’t budge.

“The door is not opening” I said

“It’s not just about saying it, you have to purpose in your heart. You only want to leave here because it’s not beautiful, not because of any other thing.” 

“Wait, will Kennie be there?”

“Sure” the man answered

“I’m not going then” I said and sat at the door.

***

 Tess alighted from her car and walked to the reception. As she walked, a woman suddenly hit her from behind and she almost fell, if not for a man that held her from falling. The woman barely mumbled a sorry before she continued her race.

“Are you okay?” the man asked her

“Yes” she replied. Putting herself together, she got out of his arms.
 
“Thank you very much. I appreciate it sir”

“You’re welcome. I’m Brent”

“Tess” she replied. ‘Nice to meet you”

“Same here. See you sometimes and thanks for the help” he smiled and they both went their way.
 
Tess looked around a while and when she couldn’t find very familiar faces, she picked up her phone and dialed Ken’s number.

“Oh boy, I’m at the hospital.

Read " Once Upon A Lie " by the same author ( Gracious )

. Where are you?” she said all at once the moment he picked up.

“I’m also at the hospital. You just wait at the reception, I’ll be there now”

“Okay, I’m waiting” she hung up and put her phone in her bag. 

“The hospital seems very lively, only God knows how many people will die or live. Hospitals drive me insane. If not for Maddy, I won’t be here at all. She will get a handful of words from me for bringing me here, really” Tess thought within herself as she patiently waited for Ken.

SOME MINUTES AFTER

KENNIE

“Eii Jesus!” Tess shouted

“Shh shh” I put a finger over my lips and smiled apologetically at the people who turned to face our direction because of the living microphone before me.

“Okay okay,” she said, bringing her voice low “you mean our Maddy is in the OR right now?”

“Yeah”

“No wonder you look distraught, disorganized, terrible and all sweaty” she shook her head and hung it low.     

“Do you ever pass a chance to insult me?” I smiled a bit, looking ‘even more terrible’ in her language

“Never” she replied, looking up. 

“Now you look more terrible. I like it” she said, smiling back.

 After smiling for a while, we continued walking in small strides. I must admit, smiling right now felt good. Even though I hardly tell her, she’s awesome the way she is. We have a bond deeper than that of besties, though we never admit it. 

“Are her injuries fatal?” 

“Yeah, the doctor said she has depressed skull fracture accompanied by Intracranial hematoma”

“Meaning?” she asked confusedly.

“Some part of her…” I was cut off by a sudden hit from behind me.

DO YOU HAVE THAT PERSON IN YOUR LIFE THAT WON'T PASS ANY CHANCE TO ABUSE YOU? hehehe. ANYWAY, IF THE BUS LEFT YOU BEHIND AND CONFUSED, KINDLY TELL IN THE COMMENTS SECTION SO WE CAN PICK YOU UP O. ESE GAN.
