"Pls can someone get me water to bathe" Daddy Joe asked no one in particular ,........ He searched the whole house and found all the water containers empty

"Anna,.... Anna"

"Is there anything i can do for you? "Angela's mother answered from inside the room half asleep,

" So there's no water in this house and you allowed your children to go out to play, where will i get water to bathe now,.... It's almost time for my shifting, "the man asked helplessly

" You shouldn't be asking me that question,.. You're talking as if you dont know the way to the borehole,..or do you expect me to fetch water for you this hot afternoon.,........ . Simply carry a gallon and fetch water you will use,...... Pls allow me to enjoy this my sleep "

" So It's me you're talking to like this, eeh, Mama Angela,.... You've forgotten how i used to treat you like a queen when i was rich,.... You've forgotten how i trained you in school,..... You also forgot how you pushed me to do that business that has kept me where i am today,.... Ever since things turned around for me, you dont see me as your husband,... Don't worry, I'll still rise again"

"Amen oooo, pls rise again,...... Rise oooooo,.. Because i'm tired of this kind of life i'm living,.... I've suffered for the past 20years hoping that things would turn out well but we're still where we were,...... Look at my children,..... You cant clothe them, ...... You cant afford their school fees, even feeding money is a problem for you,.... You couldn't train my first daughter in the University,........ She's now a nursery school teacher that earns almost nothing at the end of the month,.... . And you call yourself a man,.......pls....... Pls....... Pls..... Dont allow me to use harsh words on you." Angela's mother fired at her husband.

Drop of tears could be seen rushing down from Daddy Joe's eyes......... He wiped his tears and carried one of the empty gallons to fetch water,....... He walked down the street thinking of how unfair life has been to him.

"My wife no longer respects me,..... My daughter Angela is doing everything possible to help the family,... Her three younger ones doesn't understand what we're passing through yet,.... My life is almost ruined,.... God pls come to my rescue."Daddy Joe prayed inwardly while walking down the street.

I've noticed this in most stories. The woman disrespects the man, he starts getting teary. Really?
This is Emasculating.

********Mrs Johnson stood still watching Richie's room,..... She let out a scream,....
"Pedro oooo!!!!, Pedro o!!!!! "she hurried downstairs calling Pedro.

" Madam, what happened?,... Why are you screaming? "he asked with a terrified look on his face,

" Where's Richard?, "she asked pointing at his room

" Madam, i tried telling you what happened but you didnt listen to me"

"Shut up,just answer my question,..... What happened to Richard's properties?, "

" Madam, Richard entered here with four soldiers,... . He seized our phone and kept us under arrest for two hours,.... They packed all his belongings into a van packed outside and left " Pedro narrated to her

" So why didn't you call me to inform me"she asked him
"Madam, they seized our phones,.... We couldn't call you, "

" Chai, this boy is just too smart, he's playing with fire,... He packed out of the house without informing me, i need to act fast"

She called her friend mrs Ukoh, who promised to see her the next day,........


Richard and Desmond were in his new apartment arranging his properties, he had called Angela to inform her of his relocation ,.....

"Richie, you took the right step,... You need to stay away from your mother,.. Sometimes i wonder if she's actually your Biological mother,...... "Desmond said

" I think the same too,.. You need to see how she was threatening to deal with me,.... I cant believe my own mother could be so wicked,..... "

" Angela needs to be careful, i had a very bad dream about her,...., your mother is not happy with you, and she's ready to harm her if she finds out she's your girlfriend "

" I've thought of that,.... I'm thinking of renting another apartment for her parents, they need to leave that environment,... "

" Very good,...he yawned hungrily... I'm famished, let's look for somewhere nice to eat "

They left for an eatery close to Richard's house to eat their supper.


******* Daddy Joe returned home looking sad,.... His wife noticed his countenance,...... She thought it was due to stress,...She prepared his food and served him before returning to her kiosk for the evening sales,...

Angela returned from school and was shocked to meet her father at home,.... She greeted him and noticed his voice was low,.... She knew something is wrong with him

"Daddy, is your leg paining you? "she asked touching the leg,

" No my daughter,i'm alright,... Just a little bit tired.. "he replied
" Daddy i want to wash my clothes, i would like to wash yours also"

He brought his dirty clothes and handed to her,... She was about soaking his shirt when a brown envelope fell from her his pocket,... She picked it up and stared at it,..... Curiosity made her open the envelope and she found out that her father has been sacked,..... She couldn't believe her eyes,... She went into the room and met her father relaxing on the cushion, listening to the radio, she called him twice but there no reply,.... She touched him, he didn't move,..... She then screamed his name,....

"Daddy!!!!!,!!!! "she pushed him and he fell from the cushion ,.

She ran outside and called her mother , they both ran inside......

" Joe pls dont do this to me,. Dont abandon me with these children,... Who will take care of these children, ... Joe pls..... "Her mother cried.

Angela was still in shock and didn't know what else to do,.... Neighbours had gathered in their house,.. A taxi was called and he was taken to the hospital.


Richard was rounding off his office work for the day, when his phone rang,... He picked it immediately seeing the caller Id

"Angel,... How're you?

"Richie,..... My dad...... "she wept over the phone
Richie was startled,... He couldn't hear her clearly, the phone went dead, network seems to be bad, he suspended his work, he continued dialing her number but it wasn't going through,.. He thought of what next to do,.... He tried her number after several attempts and it rang, she picked it

"Angel, what's wrong with your daddy? "

" I dont know,..... He cant breath, we're at the hospital"she sobbed over the phone

"Calm down love, which hospital?, "

" At St. Joseph's hospital,.. "

" OK, i'm on my way, just wait for me"

He dropped the call and closed for the day, he drove straight to St. Joseph 's hospital

Richie arrived the hospital and met Angela' s family in grief,...... This is the first time he's meeting her mother,..... Angela rushed to him crying,.. He hugged her wiping her tears,...

"Angel calm down,.... Nothing will happen to your daddy, "he consoled her

Angela's mother could not stop wondering who the young man is,....

" Mummy, this is Richard,. "She introduced Richie to her mother

"good day ma,. I'm sorry for what happened to your husband,.".

"It's ok,sorry you met us in this terrible condition "she apologized

" I want to see the doctor attending to him"he said referring to Angela 's dad, The doctor called them to his office,...

"I'm sorry, your dad's BP is very high,... By God's grace he'll be perfect,..... You need to deposit the sum of twenty thousand naira for commencement of treatment,..... Richie paid the money immediately and took the family home to rest.


It's been one week Angela's father was admitted,. But there was no sign of improvement in his health,... Richie and Angela visited the hospital to check on him,... They were alone in the hospital cafeteria when Richie decided to ask Angela what happened to her dad.

"Angel,.. Do you know what caused your daddy's BP to rise this much, "
" I'm sorry i didnt tell you this earlier,.... My daddy was sacked the day he was rushed to the hospital,..... He tried hiding it from the family but i found out,.... "

" I'm sorry about that,.... Have you told your mother about it? "

" No, not yet, i was planning to tell her before daddy would be discharged "

" Angel, you need to rest,... You're looking so weak,.... You need to take a break from your work and rest,.. "

" I cant do that now,...... Not now that my proprietor finds fault in everything i do now,...he's been acting cold towards me,.... "

" I think it's time you quit that job,i can take care of you,.. "

" Nooo, i need to save money for my education,.... And remember my daddy has lost his job,...... So i need to take care of my family "

Richard felt sorry for his girlfriend,..he needs to do something to help her out, he cant sit and watch her suffer like this,.... And she's loosing wieght drastically,.....


Angela was with her father in the hospital when he started loosing breath,..... She tried holding him but couldn't ,... She ran out and called the doctor,.. The doctor and the nurses rushed in and saved him,...... Angela prayed vehemently,.... Her dad fell asleep minutes later,.. She was relieved.....

She went out to buy snacks for lunch,.... She decided to stay outside a little bit to enjoy fresh air,... she stayed outside for thirty minutes before returning to the room,... She returned to the room to see the doctor and the nurses attending to her daddy,... After several attempts,.. The doctor asked the nurse,

"Nurse, what's the time of death? "

" 2.35pm"the nurse replied him

Angela held the doorknob and couldn't move, hot tears flowed down freely from her eyes,... She watched the nurse cover her daddy,.then it dawned on her that her father is dead,.... She rushed at the nurse and pushed her away from her daddy 's corpse,,,,, she held her dad

"Daddy,... Daddy,..... Your Angel is talking to you!,.... Wake up and talk to me,... Remember you promised to never leave us in this wicked world,..... Look at your children ooo, what will mama do?,. Daddy just open your eyes,... I promise to find another job for you,.... Infact you wont work again, i'll take care of you,.. Your Angel is calling you ooooo!!!!!, Daddy., yoh cant leave me oooo, i cant bear the pain,.daddy remember you promised me that you must witness my wedding and see your grand children ..you said you must see me graduate from the University .. Daddy remember grandma is still alive,,,,,..... She can't survive without you........ Daddy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "

She held her dad crying so loudly,.... The nurses tried to console her but she was inconsolable,....... Her mother and Richie entered the room,she wondered what was happening to her daughter,.... She saw her husband covered and she didnt need anyone to tell her that her husband is dead. She joined her daughter in crying,..

Richard took his girlfriend away from the corpse,... He called Nancy and Desmond and informed them of Angela dad's demise,.... They drove to the hospital immediately,.....he also called Tope and informed her too,.... Arrangements were made for the body to be deposited in the mortuary,.. Angel would not stop crying,.... Richard drove them home,......

Calls were made to inform their family members of their brother's demise,.....

Nancy called her daddy's siblings and informed them,... Before 6pm in the evening, their house was filled with relatives that lives in Asaba,.... Her father 's house was turned to a mourning house,... Her siblings cried uncontrollably,.... Richard and Desmond stayed with the family till late at night before they retiring to their homes,... Tope and Nancy slept over to watch over Angela.
