THE ONE I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR: Chapter 21 – 30
🌹 CHAPTER 29 🌹
She truly might be innocent, but still how more do we need to get convinced when there are more than enough evidences? John said to his brother after Anita and others left.
Yeah! That’s the point. I know it hurts to know she’s the one, but how do we clear our doubts when the cctv footage in our home was destroyed and we couldn’t get exact information of what happened. You know we could never have gotten the evidence if not for the ones recorded on dad’s phone which I’m sure She didn’t see when destroying the surveillance camera.
I’m sure mom must’ve made dad set the camera so it would capture every moment. They must’ve been worried that the evidence would be destroyed… Gabriel replied.
Have them stop the interrogation for now, don’t let them hurt her till I find more evidence to back he ones we have up… John said and left the sitting room.
AT THE HOSPITAL
I already told you I can’t disclose our patients personal information, we don’t do that here so if you would excuse me, I’ve got patients to attend to so you should please leave my office and don’t return… The doctor they went to meet said
We know you don’t do that here, but please we really need it to save the young lady. Just tell us little about her and we promise to leave your off e and never return. Anita replied
I’m sure thus has never happened before, you should give it a second thought. We wouldn’t be here if she isn’t in a situation where we need to use it to save her… Desmond added.
If her being in the situation where the information about her past needs to be dug up, then she should be here herself and not some strangers coming here to speak on her behalf… The doctor replied
I need you to imagine yourself being in the situation being in a situation whereby you were accused of committing a crime in the past which you know deep down in you that you didn’t but still doubt yourself if you truly committed the crime or not, and the only solution you have is to visit your hospital to check your health record since you don’t have any parent or sibling to tell you about it… Chris said and the woman sighed.
This is exactly the situation Matilda is right now and that’s why we’re here. I don’t know if I should be telling you this or not, but she’s been accused to have committed murder in the past, so I need you to tell me if she once suffered from amnesia or a certain illness that led to memory loss… He added
Why would she be accused of committing Murder, who on earth said so about her tell me and I will have the person arrested immediately. She yelled and banged her first on the table as rears welled up in her eyes.
Are you okay? They asked in unison. She nodded and wiped off the tears streaming down her cheek.
She once lose her memory and that was when she was 6 years of age. She fell from a tall building when her school went on a vacation and was lucky to survive the incident but all her memory was erased.
It took years before she regained part of her memory and that’s why she could hardly remember some things she’s done in the past. This is the record of what I just said… She said and handed a file to them which they all looked at.
You seem to be hurt to here she’s in a certain condition. if I may ask, do you know anything about her parents death or their past? Chris asked again.
“I shouldn’t be talking here in my office, let’s go to my place for proper discussion” she replied and packed somethings in her bag before exiting the office while they followed.
“I’ll be leaving now, see you all tomorrow” she said to the receptionists after handling one of them the key to her office. “Alright! ma’am” they replied and bade her goodbye.
“Thanks for the drinks'” Anita said to her as they drank from the cup of juice she gave to entertain them.
“You’re welcome” she replied and took a seat opposite them.
Matilda’s parents were my friends. They both were best of friends right from our high school and they were always known to be couples even thigh they weren’t dating but we all the biggest and greatest news when we got invitation to their wedding ceremony, though we all saw that coming.
They made sure I became their personal doctor after i badged my certificate from medical school. I’ve been in charge of their health issues ever since then. Her mother gave birth to her and her twin sister right there in the hospital I work in which I own now after inheriting it from my late father.
Henrietta ( Matilda’s mum ) called me one evening while I was abroad to inform me about some threats being sent to her and her husband.
I had to rush down here because she sounded scared, but it was too late because her father had been killed before I got to their house. I searched everywhere for Henrietta and the kids because they weren’t at the spot but I couldn’t find them.
I became devasted when I read the news about a beggar and her daughter being hit by a truck and her and Tilda’s twin sister’s pictures were displayed.
I couldn’t cry less at the name they were tagged with “BEGGAR” never could I have ever imagined in my entire life that they would become poor or would die early because they both were hardworking while they were alive and we’re okay financially.
I had to leave the country with guilt eating me up that I couldn’t help my best friends when they needed me the most and my efforts to locate Matilda was in vain. I so much had the feeling she was alive.
If there’s nothing I don’t remember, it’s definitely not the last part of the text message she sent that day. They were being threatened because Matilda did something she shouldn’t have done and I’m sure it’s a good thing because she’s always had the kind heart her parents also possessed.
I need to dig up the past even if it would cost me a fortune… She said after narrating the story to them. “I knew it, the Matilda I know could never have done such a thing, someone must’ve edited the clips they said they found” Anita said.
Bring me the record of everyone working for him as soon as possible. We need to get her out of there first, I can’t stand seeing her hurt even if that’d be the last help i’d render to my deceased friends… She said.
“Alright! We’ll be back probably tomorrow or in few days time” Anita replied and they left.
