Episode 5.

How can someone with blood flowing through their vein say that about my baby?
Can you just imagine?
Rubbish! I was so angry.
Mummy please you need to leave, right now.
She looked at me then moved towards the door.
You know I wish I never gave birth to you. You are such a waste! We sent you to the best school, gave you the best life and this all you give us in return.
Nurse! I shouted
Mum, you need to leave this place right now.
Don’t preach no gospel to me. I am tired of hearing the gospel from you.
It has never done me any good so Leave!
Mum stood up with so much tears in her eye, she was so full of pain and I could sense the love mixed with hatred plus a lot of questions ruining through her head. Yeah I could sense her pain but what about mine?
But she is gone, that is the most important thing. I wish she never came.
My friends used to mock me in school when I was little.
You this preacher’s kids, your mum is always preaching to people making them feel they are the worst people on earth.
I wonder if that’s what her Bible says she should make people feel.
One of my school Mate in secondary school said to me.
My mum is the worst. Honestly I hated her being my mum.
Hey dear, take a nap. The nurse who came in to send mum out said to me.
Tomorrow will be another day.
I started crying,
Hey baby, you can not afford to always be a weak woman, You need to be strong and you should face any one at anytime. Umaru said that to me when I had a ‘B’ in a course I was supposed to have an “A” but the lecturer decided to reduce my mark by giving me a mark lesser than I deserved. Umaru instill the courage in me.
I had to challenge the lecturer and my mark was changed.
This is exactly what I did for my mum today, taking my ground.
You have someone on the phone waiting to speak with you, a nurse came in to inform me.
