Chapter 47

  • "Just take it slow and have deep breaths," I was told by Caleb who sat in front of me as curious eyes of my friends and Mrs. Karen who stood next to my bedside looked down at me curiously. As I passed out in the classroom, I was taken to my uni's aid room where they went through my phone's last call and got in touch with Caleb who rushed to my aid as soon as he knew about me.
  • "Can you remember anything now?" he asked and I nodded the images of my past refreshed in my mind.
  • "I think it was the beginning of the rainy season and we all went out of a gathering. I remember being happy as she told my dad she was going to join back her work. We were really happy but then I had to be stubborn as I wanted to go for a boat ride in the lake and dad agreed," I told them as the blurry memories turned to get clear.
  • "I could still remember the day now. It was slightly raining but dad agreed when that woman persuaded her husband wanting to go for a boat ride herself. We all went on that boat and as we reached the middle, I was looking down and playing with the water when I heard a loud heart-wrenching sound which caught me off guard. I looked back to find that woman, Giselle with a gun in his hand as she shot her husband on his arm. Blood was oozing out of his arm as he looked horrified and scared. "
  • "My mother screamed in agony and my father reached forward to stop Giselle from shooting her husband when she pushed my father who didn't know how to swim into the water. I remember sobbing and yelling when my mother tried to reach for my father who was drowning but made every attempt to be out of the water."
  • "A few seconds later, I heard another shot and did the mistake to look back only to find Giselle shooting her husband right on his forehead. I saw it with my own eyes as blood spilled out from his forehead and that shocked look on his face as his lifeless body tumbled into the water. My mother looked back crying and then she reached forward immediately to get a hold of me and held my father as she helped him reach the boat but then Giselle turned to us and pointed her gun at us. My mother was shaking as she shielded me with her arms and yelled at her."
