We all ran upstairs worried but Aunt sent everyone back except me. We knocked but mom refused opening the door. I just don't understand exactly what's happening with her.
" Doris. " Aunt called her.
" Aunt did I say anything wrong? "
I was really confused, maybe I said something I don't know about.
"No my dear, I don't know what's wrong with your mother. "
She gently patted my shoulder.
Wake up Doris, this might all be an illusion . You are over reacting ,the person you know is already gone. This might just be an illusion. What about the unnecessary drama I just acted now. Damn it! I'm just terribly unbelievable.
Few minutes later, mom opened up. Her anxiety was already gone.
" Doris. "
" Mom. "
"I'm sorry my dear. I'm really sorry. "
" what happened Mom? "
" Nothing my dear. She looks so much like someone I used to know but she's already dead. I was shocked and I couldn't hold back my emotions. "
" it's OK

. I understand and they will too. "
We went downstairs together.
" I told you guys right? It's just a family welcome show, specially organized for you guys since you didn't meet the party. "
Jessi and Des stood up immediately they saw mother.
" I'm sorry if we've cause you any form of inconvenience MA. If you don't mind, we will take our leave now. It was actually nice getting to meet you. "
Jessi mildly said.
" No my children. I'm sorry for making you feel unwelcome. You really look like someone I used to know but she's passed on already and I couldn't hold back my emotions. Please forgive me. "
" It's okay MA, we understand. Please sit"
" so tell me, how was your flight? "
"It was... "
Jessi and Des said in unison and laughed.
" Don't worry, you can answer for us. "
Jessi said to Des.
" Don't worry, I'll answer for me and you will answer for you. My flight was perfectly okay and how was yours Jessi? "
Des said amusing everyone in the house.
"mine was awesome. It's been pretty long I flew a plane in Nigeria. "
" you have not been in Nigeria? "
" Yea, I just came back and fate blessed me with this sisters of mine."
We chatted for sometime before everyone retired to bed. Jessi, Cynthy and I slept on my bed.
It was really nice feeling the welcome breeze of Lagos once again. The family I got to meet, I'd say they are awesome, loving and accommodating. At first, I was shocked at the way Mrs Doris stared at me but it wasn't actually what I was thinking, it wasn't my past.
Speaking of my past, every single step I make close to it, the more the courage I've gathered for five years disappears. I don't know if I can face it but I want to do everything I can to face it and move on with my life.
I was still deep in thought when my ringtone interrupted.
" Hello.. "
" Yes hello. Des told me you are in Nigeria. "
" Yes I am. "
" But I told you not to go. There are things you don't know, you just don't understand. You wouldn't like the path you are taking, you are putting your life in danger. "
" what danger? The one you have refused to tell me about for five years? For heaven's sake, my fiancee left me in the hospital to die on our wedding day. I never got married, I woke up outside the country. You have tormented me far too long with silence. I want to know why he abandoned me after claiming to love me. I fucking need answers. Who is after my life, you don't want to tell me. Just stay away and that's it? "
" Jessica, I know it's difficult but you have to listen to me. If you go on like this, you've got more to loose and more to hurt. "
" Am I that much of a parasite? "
" No, you have got to do what is right. "
" Yes and that's is me looking for answers. Good night mom. "
I cut the call on her for the very first time in my life. What am I to do? I need answers and that is what I'll get. I don't know what has happened to my life, left in the dark for five years. This hate and agony in my heart, I'll make sure Williams gets a taste of it.
I woke up pretty early, feeling this unusual happiness. I went into the bathroom to freshen up. When I came out, Cynthy and Jessi were already up.
" Good morning sis and happy weekend "
"my dear, how are you? "
" I'm okay, hope you slept well?"
"like never before little sis. "
" Good morning sisters. "
" morning dear"
" Let me go to the bathroom. "
Cynthia said and headed for the bathroom.
" Queen... "
" Yes sis, anything? "
" Are you really serious with Des and the show you put up yesterday? "
" um... Sis please freshen up, we'll talk about that later. "
" Please don't joke with his feelings, he doesn't easily get emotional attached but when he does, it's a different thing altogether. I love the both of you and I won't want any of you hurting. "
" OK sis, i pick and hey, today is Saturday, how about we go to the shopping mall and yea! I want you to meet a very good friend of mine too. "
" Someone? Who? "
" A guy actually. Liams. "
" Liams? Is he a Nigerian? "
" Kekris health care? "
" yea, Doctor Williams... "
Jessi interrupted me before I could finish.
" Williams Richardson. "
She said to my amazement.
" wow! How did you know? "
She smiled .
" For all I know Jessi, you haven't been in Nigeria so....? "
" I haven't been doesn't mean I don't read about my country. "
" Really? "
" yea and I'll really like to meet him. "
" OK let me give him a call. "
I picked up my phone and called Williams. He agreed to meet up with me later in the evening to see this big sis I've been talking about..
" Deal sis, 5pm today. "
I said to Jessi who has been listening and waiting for my reply.
" Alright, 5pm it is then. "
