Chapter 22 Eaten
- Obed was now standing there and looked at Florence. Florence noticed that Obed's mood had suddenly changed. Florence came close to Obed and asked him, Obed m, was the matter. Obed looked at Florence and tears started to flow from his eyes. Michael and Joyce who were watching the groups clash, which were group 1 and group 15, turned their heads and saw Obed tears as they came rushing towards him, Florence raised her hand to show a sign not to come. Michael and Joyce stood there in a bamboozled state and waited for Florence response before they could come. Florence hugged Obed and asked him what the matter was. Obed started to weep and said, you remember when I told you about the weird dream that I had right. Yes, said Florence, I taught we had settled that matter. No, said Obed, this was the exact spot at which you were eaten, I mean this place, planet. Florence was shocked to here that and she made Obed sit on the ground.
- She then placed her head in Obed's chest and started to sing a song. Michael and Joyce started to wonder why is taking her so long to call them. After singing the song, Obed stared to dry up his tears and hugged Florence and thank her for calming him down. Florence then used her hand to wipe off the last tear that came out of Obed's eye and helped him get up.
- After this Joyce and Michael came to Obed to ask him why he was weeping. Obed told them that it was a private issue so he couldn't discuss it with them. Michael didn't understand why Obed didn't want to tell them but Joyce knew that maybe it would be something to do with either Florence or the death of his parents.
