Episode 77

Arya’s Pov:

I drank from the glass of milk before dropping the glass on the table.

I turned my Mom who was combing my long shiny hair.

“Am so nervous Mom” I started.

“You shouldn’t be my darling.. why are you nervous? Don’t you want to be discharged from the hospital or are you not tired of perceiving the scent of the hospital?” Mom nudged me as I smiled.

“Of course I miss our house mom! As a matter of fact am really tired of being here in this hospital but am still nervous” I gulped.

“You don’t have to be my child.. they are only going to remove the bandage on your face so that everyone can see your beautiful face again so you should be so excited” Mom said as I forced a smile.

“Am very happy mommy… Thank you so much for being with me till the end of this phase” I said with a smile.

“Oh come on my child! Am your mother and I will never ever leave you to suffer alone cos we are always in this together” She patted my hair.

“Thank you so much Mom! Am very happy to have you right by my side” I throw my arms at her as she hugged me tightly.

“Always my child.. I will always be here no matter what happens” She replied.

“You don’t have to worry cos soon this bandage will be taken off and you can be free.. I can’t wait to see your beautiful face my dearest daughter” Mom said as I chuckled in excitement.

“I love you Mom” I said with a wide smile.

“You know I love you so much too baby so it’s mutual and maybe I even love you more” Mom winked at me as we shared a laugh.

“And again Mom I really want to thank uncle Leo for helping out with the bills if not then I would still be with my bruised face” I said.

“Yes baby.. he has really helped our family so much and he deserves every thanks and more” mom said.

“But mom where is my Dad? Why is he not with us to complete our family?” I suddenly asked as mom choked.

“What?’ mom managed to say as she cleared her throat noisily.

“Yes Mommy… Where is my father? Why isn’t he with us?” I continued asking.

“Come on my dear you shouldn’t be thinking of that… What you should be concerned about is how to get out of the hospital” mom said forcing a smile at me.

“Of course Mom you know I will be discharged soon according to the doctor but that’s not the issue… I really want to know why we aren’t with my dad and why you don’t always talk about my dad” I continued pressurizing her.

“I think that should be a talk for some other day baby we have to do the needful for now” Mom kept shying away from the question.

“I’ve been asking you this Mom for some years now yet you don’t want to give me a reply and each time I talk about it you always shy away from it” I sniffed hard.

“Come on child… I didn’t say I won’t answer your question! Am just saying that this isn’t the perfect time for the question so maybe some other time we can talk about it” Mom patted my hair.

“I really want to know Mom” I hugged her tightly.

“You shouldn’t pressurize your mommy Arya! I already promised you that I will tell you that later at the right time” She said.

“You have been telling me that for the past fourteen years Mom and am tired of hearing you say that” I argued.

“You know I…” Mom tried to say but she was interrupted by the doctor who walked in with a nurse.

“Here we are…” The doctor announced.

“Oh doctor; we have been expecting you as well” Mom smiled at the doctor.

I only forced a smile at the doctor.

“You don’t need to be nervous little one your face will look beautiful as it has always been ok” The doctor patted my shoulder.

“Thank you doctor” I mumbled.

“Alright then we should commence” The doctor said as I nodded my head.

“I’ll be right back” The doctor said as she left the ward.

I wanted to continue the question I was asking my Mom but she quickly walked out with the doctor too.


Aliyah’s Pov:

I walked out of the ward with the doctor cos am sure Arya would want to keep asking me about her father which I don’t want to talk about…

I took a deep breath as I paced around nervously.

How do I explain to Arya that she will never be able to see her father?

I can’t let her have anything to do with him.

Not after all we went through to get to this stage of our life.

Why does she still need her father in the first place?

Aren’t we happy?

Don’t I give her anything she asks for?

So why is she so eager to meet her so called Father.

I hope she forgets everything about this question of hers cos I don’t know what to tell her if she asks me anything concerning her father again.

I don’t even know which answer to give her if she comes up with the question again.

Am definitely not going to tell her that he is alive.

Maybe I should tell her that he is dead and gone for good.

That’s the best reply so that she will stop pestering me and asking me about Arthur.

Arthur is our past and our past he shall remain.

I won’t let him find his way back into our lives.

He has a family now so he should be with them happily.

I can’t just come in and destroy his family with our past.

Arya will never know anything about him or that she ever had a father.

I will make sure of that…

I was still in my thoughts when the doctor doctor came forward.

“Shall we?” The doctor said as I nodded my head.

We walked straight into the ward…..
