sorry for the late updates


Episode 27

See Gobe!!!

Harry and his friends, out of their benevolent gesture were able to contribute money for Udoh's bills. Though, with Harry paying the bulk of the bills.
The Doctor had signed the necessary discharge document and Udoh was ready to leave.
That morning, his friends barged into his ward.

"Oya make we deh go!" Harry said.

Udoh gave him a cold glance. "Go where?"

"See this madman ooo! We deh go house na!" James said.

Udoh tried to remember if he had a house outside the hospital alas, his brain failed. But he was somehow sure he knew Harry and co.

"Are you sure i have a house?" He asked in confusion.

"Eh..you no get house, na rent you deh rent!" Peter chirped in.

"Where the house deh?" Udoh asked again.

"How that alcohol strong reach sotey you no fit remember anything!" Okon said.

Harry had to drag Udoh off the bed but they latter screamed. "Make una leave me na...i no sabi una abi na by force...una wan friend me...i no be ynash man ooo!" That was Udoh screaming.

"Since they say your brain no good, how you take sabi say you no be ynash man?" Harry asked.

"I ko commot person eye ooo...who be una?" Udoh screamed again.

"Udoh...you sabi say i deh flogg person? If you no get up from that bed, i ko shook your nyansh with injection!" Okon threatened.

Udoh began to scream for help.

"Wetin deh do this idiot!" Harry cursed.

His screams attracted some medical workers to the ward.
"What is it?" The Doctor who first rushed in asked.

"Na them ooo" Udoh screamed.

"Who be them? Na us you deh call dem?" Okon was pissed.

The Doctor crossed his 't' and dotted his 'i' and soon figured out the reason for the screams.
"Can i see you guys outside?" He asked.

"All of us?" Okon asked.

"Yea!" The Doctor replied.

They reluctantly moved out to the corridor.

"Doctor abeg...i no get time for your sick medical english!" Harry said.

"Ok..now listen! That guy in there is scared...you know he's having problems with his memory! You guys need to be friendly..."

"We are his friends na, what is the need to be friendly!" Peter cut the Doctor short.

"Just be easy on him...if you guys are somewhat hostile, he won't feel relaxed!" The Doctor said, breezed past them and moved into the ward.
'"Mr. These guys are your friends!"

"They are not ooo, they can't be my friends. I bind, i cast, i rebuke!" Udoh screamed.

"They paid your bills..they are your family!" The Doctor said.

"Family? Is it paternal or maternal? Is it spiritual or physical? Is it family and friends. Tell me, i need to know!" Udoh kept on blabbing.

The Doctor just faced Harry, "Try your best..i have other things to do".

Harry decided to follow the Doctor's advice. "Udoh my love..."

"God will punish you! Am i ya love? You be woman?" Udoh screamed.

James moved forward and dragged Udoh from the bed. Udoh in anger pushed him.
James moved closer to him and restrained him from laying down. "This hospital room no be ya fada house...you hear me?" James held his ear.
Udoh thought for a while. "Are una really my friends?"

"Yes...we are una friends!" Harry replied in the same vein.

"Eh be like say i sabi una..but na for hell fire i sabi una!" Udoh pointed.

"Na for hell fire you sabi us?" Harry asked.

Okon sighed impatiently, "make we commot for here...hospital na for sick people".

In one accord, they filed out of the hospital.

"Where my house deh sef?" Udoh asked but he was ignored."Una wan kidnap me?".

Harry flagged down a taxi and they all got in.

"Big head...!" Udoh tapped Okon, who sat close to the driver.

"God punish you...my name na Okon!"

"Okon..please the mutual respect i have for you is super slowpoke!"

The occupants in the taxi giggled out.

"Where are una taking me to? I don't have the necessary finance to reimburse you guys. I'm not a victim that will fetch you money...please let me go and i promise i and my family will serve the lord forever!"

The men broke into a heavy laughter.

Harry patted his back, "we are your family ok? No shake...we cannot harm you!"

"Udoh...eh be like say your short term madness don turn you to Wole soyinka oooo. See how you deh blow the english!" Peter said and they laughed.

There was silence for a while.

"Oga taxi man, you no get radio for this car?" Okon asked.

"I no like radio..iffa listen to radio, na to sleep be dat!" The taxi driver said.

"Soo, na radio deh make you sleep bah?" Okon asked.

"Yesooo my brother!"

"I no be your brother!" Okon said.

"Ahhh...we be one Nigeria na!"

"Noo, me i be two nigeria. How radio ko deh make person sleep?" Okon asked.

"If you deh doubt me, play radio now for ya phone...and you ko see as i go sleep. I ko sleep, then drive una ko jam bridge, kill all of una!"

"God punish you and your generation in twenty folds...na your papa and friends you ko drive, go jam dem for bridge!" Hary cursed.

"See Philomena...Udoh's babe!" Peter pointed at a lady who stood by the road.

On hearing the name, Udoh's brain went into a quick processing mode.
After some minutes of silence, he asked, "Who is Philomena?"

Peter's face lit up, "You sabi am?"

Udoh nodded thoughtfully.

"You see am! You be confirm womaniser! You no come sabi your niggies but you sabi woman!" Peter said and they laughed.

"Why una deh call me Udoh?"

"Ooh! What a stupid question from a short term madman!" Peter said.

"Na who give me the name, na my parents or na una?"

"No be us ooo na your papa see as your future deh disjointed, he come nack you deh name!" Okon said.

"Call me Eagle!"

"Jessus!" The men gasped.

"Your madness don deh oscillate! You wan answer animal name now abi, no worry i ko deh call you turkey or maybe fowl!" James said.

"Wetin do am? Him head still correct?" The taxi driver asked.

"You no ko sharrap and mind your driving or i ko play radio for my phone now!" Okon threatened.

"Iffu like play, abi na all of us ko die!" The Cab man said.

"Exclusion of me ooo" James screamed.

"I love that name Philomena...i love her!" Udoh closed his eyes.

"See mad man, he don deh fall in love ooo!" Peter screamed and they all laughed.

"Love is a beautiful thing...i love love!" The taxi driver said.

"You mad so? Which one be i love love?" Okon asked the cab man.

"Bros...you no ko understand. Love don do me something for this life. As i ugly, woman no fit love me true love all they want is my cash!" The cab man said.

"You resemble person weh get cash?" Okon fired.

"Back then in my glory, i been deh dash babes 30k, 80k...i deh spend for them...but now as i carry all my money bury my papa and him four wives, money no come deh! And woman no come deh. My brother, i miss their soft breast, as at now..anytime weh breast worry me, i deh buy soft bread, come deh squeeze am. When i squeeze am finish, i come throway am!" The Cab man said.

"So na bread you deh squeeze now!" Okon asked.

"Eh...na soft bread be the replacement until i see babe weh ko love me. But now, na soft bread i deh squeeze...infact some soft bread soft pass some women breast" The taxi man said.

"Your own madness, no be God ko judge...na Satan...because you don big leave your sense for ground!" Okon said.

"Eh better pass to rape, if the thing worry me, na to enter shop buy soft bread, carry go house go squeeze! For my mind, the thing ko be like breast!"

"So, you deh follow Bleep the bread!" Okon asked.

"You sef! I deh learn from your madness. How person ko Bleep bread? I deh talk about seventy naira bread ooo!" The cab man said.

"Na soapy tinz na..." Harry said and they all roared in laughter.

"Na nairey marley be my mentor ooo!" The cab man said.

"Bread squeezer, oya pack well!" Peter ordered.

They Cab man killed the engine and they alighted from the vehicle.
Okon paid the cab man and they dragged Udoh with them.

Udoh surveyed the environment with keen interest. He tried very hard to recall, but couldn't .
But deep down, he felt he knew the place somewhere, somehow.

"Udoh abi Eagle..na the house be this!" Harry said.

Neighbours trooped out to welcome him, somehow Udoh felt like a celebrity.
As they approached the inner compound, they found a toyota avalon parked, with a man leaning on it.
On seeing them, the man sparked up. "I don catch una...you called me a bastard on phone huh? I paid you your complete money only for you to desert the site...you've delayed my work...can you imagine?" The man charged at Udoh.

"Oga calm down...this is not a delicate situation. This my guy here been get accident, you no see bandage for him body?" Harry asked.

"He called me bastard...arrant nonsense, you have the temerity, the audacity, the effontery, the guts, the liver to open that your dilapidated mouth...you are a criminal and I'll treat you like one!" The man fumed.

"Which one de dis? Why you deh blow grammar for my front? Who you be?" Udoh asked the man.

"You say? What did you just say?" Without warning, he grazed Udoh's lips with a straight punch.

Udoh tried to react but was held down by his friends. "Why you punch me, i sabi you.. who you be?" He struggled. "Make una leave me ooo or una ko buy this fight!" He struggled.

"Oga mi, you are a foolish copper, you are a foolish bronze. You no get human sympathy, this broz been get accident..he no well..why you punch am? Na only you deh build house?" Harry screamed.

"You all are criminals and I'll treat you like one!" The man screamed.

"Na you and your family be criminals, you are a occultic, you are a bastard terrorist!" Harry charged.

The man wanted sending a punch, but he measured his strength to the five men before him.

"I gave you my money, and you're feeding me crap! I don't tolerate bullshit. My calibre of person is very complex to come by. I'll make sure i terminate your excesses!" The man screamed.

"You think say na you sabi speak english pass...brother, you are a bunchdon. You are the combination of stupidity and gross foolishness. Your stupidity is in the ratio of 5:6.
Your descendant are witches...God will dutifully punish you...just look at you. You are a povertinarian". That was Harry.

"I will lock all of you up!" The man pointed at them.

"Do you think you can lock me up? I am the law..i make the law!" Harry boasted.

"I'll punish you all with my money...I'll make you all to sleep in jail...I'll will damage you all!" The man screamed.

"I challenge you...you will do no such shit. I am the law...bring even navy, they will bow. My godson is the senate president!" Harry screamed, his friends just stared at Harry in suprise.
Harry screamed till saliva flew everywhere. "You are a bastard, your wife is a bastress, you children are batteries. God punish you in arreas!" Harry screamed.

"Abi you are the law?" The man entered his car.

"I am what you say i am!" Harry fired back.

"Just give me three minutes, and i will change the course of your destiny!" The man ignited the engine of his car and rode off.

"Sai! We don die ooo" Peter screamed.

"The man no fit mess up..i ko personally treat him fvuck up. Just one phone call and he will be history. I am the law!" Harry kept screaming and sweating.

"How much you deh owe the man?" Peter asked.

"I swear, i no sabi that man!" Udoh shrugged.

"Udoh...na me deh here! That man no fit do shit. I am the law!" Harry said.

They heard the screeching of tyres and their eyes popped open as an army truck raced into the inner compound.
Harry, with a blinding speed flew over the drainage and raced into the bush.
In the split of seconds, the men disappeared leaving only a confused Udoh and Okon.
The army men cocked their riffles.
"Where dem? Where are those bloody civilians!!!"

The man gave a smile of victory as he faced Udoh. "Why don't you run with your fellow criminals..where is that fool that was screaming that he is the law...let him come and law here let me see...Officers, here are the criminals".

The officers marched towards them, Okon stood in front of Udoh with his hands stretched forward.
"Officers, let's settle this case amicably!" Okon pleaded.

One of the officers landed the butt of the riffle on Okon's chest.

Okon saw stars, he saw angel gabriel pricing okrika in alaba international market.
He fell to the ground and rolled into the drainage.

Udoh on seeing this, tried to escape but he was giving a sliding tackle and he fell to the ground begging.
The officers bundled him into the waiting van.

"What of that amicable bastard?" One of the officers screamed.

"He is in the gutter!" One of them replied.

"We are coming later for you guys!" They said and got into their van and rode off.

Episode 28

Palava!

In deep tears and regret..
I watch my life in regret..
On the altar, i prayed for peace..
But now, i watch in pieces..
What have i done?
In what path have i gone?
I watch my body in pulp..
I drink suffering in a cup..
God if it may, let this pass..
Cuz i lay on the pains of grass..
My tears, i shed in pains...
My suffering, i refuse for gain..
I've been beaten to pulp..
Lord if it may, pass away, this cup..
Cup of pains, i refuse to drink..
As I stand on life brink...
Death is what i pray for now...
But i remember my vows...
In joy, in pains...
In loss, in gain..
Till death do us part..
Lord let me not tour this path...
Break the heart of stone...
Le this be bygone...
Lord shine your light...
For dark and fear is the night...
It is full of terror...
Laddened with hell's horror...
I've been beaten to pulp..
Lord if it may,pass away this cup.


Vera poured out her prayers to heaven in a poetic manner.
Her body was broken, her heart was broken. Her body was pummeled.
Smart wasted no time in sending the punches and kicks were it matters.
She was bleeding everywhere, black eyes, swollen lips, a fractured arm and some brief cuts here and there.
One word, it was fatality!
Her phone was seized and she was placed on house arrest.
Her job maybe was gone..
Her boss at work never tolerated negligence of duty without a concrete excuse.
And yesterday, was her payday.
Damn! She needed to call her boss.
She got up from the bed and limped to the sitting room.
She met her husband dozing and yawning in between.
She knew it was hunger.
She tapped him fearfully.

Smart immediately sprung up, he gave her an askance look.

"Please i need to call someone!" She pleaded.

Smart seemed to consider, "You want to call your famil..."

"I wish to call my boss!" She cut him short.

"What for?"

She sighed, She stared at him in anger and disgust. She wanted ranting, but she decided to be humble. The beatings she recieved earlier had humbled her.
'Bitch be humble...' Smart kept on shouting those words as he dealt with her.

"Yesterday was payday and i need to inform him why i was absent! And I'm dying, i need to eat and treat myself"

Smart observed her for a while, her swollen lips was the product of his left punch. Her black eyes, he could remember his kicks towards it.
Her nostrils widened. Oh! His right elbow did that.
He somehow felt a tinge of compassion.

"Vera my wife...I've always loved you. Even the book of life says that a loving father disciplines his son. I discipline you, not because i hate you! Many women don't have this opportunity!" He moved to touch her but she recoiled backward. "You see, marriage is a training ground, it's a school. We are in here for training. Any man who doesn't discipline his wife doesn't love her!!"

"Can i have my phone?" She wasn't ready to listen to his wack analysis of marriage.

"I'm the boss here, i call the shots! God in his infinite wisdom knew the human world was going to need a balance, that's why he made man the head. So..."

"Can i have my phone?"

"Don't cut me short again" He gave her a warning stare. "Like i said earlier, I love you...forget the bisexual stuff...that was then...when i was in the world..but now, I'm in Christ and you know it. Eventhough i don't attend church, but i live in the meditation of scriptural holliness. Vera, i can bodly beat my chest that I'm a saint..forget that i smoke...smoking wasn't condemn by God! Apostle Paul smoked..that explained his boldness before kings. Why did God create weed? Have you ever sat down to ask yourself that question.
I will even advise you to smoke cuz you'll see life on a different angle. You'll be a good decision maker!"

"Please!!" She was crying now. "My ankles hurt, look at my face..it seems i was rammed by a truck..i need to go out and treat myself!"

"Is not my joy that we fight everytime..tame that demon in you! From time immemorial, no woman can run a home successfully. If you try to, you'll ruin yourself! I'll discharge and release, so that you'll go visit the market bring food and prepare for us to eat!" He retrieved a bunch of keys and an iphone from his pocket and handed it to her.

"Make sure you visit the market for food...infact you'll need to prepare food before you visit the hospital. And as for that brotherhood issue..."

Vera sighed in anger and cursed under her breath as she retrieved her atm card from her room.

"I know your account balance...withdraw only ten thousand...eight thousand for food and the rest for your medic..."

"Its my money we are talking about? I laboured for it!" She said with gritted teeth.

"We labour together..." he pointed to himself. "We all labour in our own way!"

"Smart! You've never brought anything to the table..right from when i dated you!" She broke down in tears.

"Can you hear that? I've taken care of you..I've been a good husband! What more could one ask for? There are beautiful ladies outside the globe...but i choose to stick with you! I've brought my big rooster to the table, I've brought love to the table.."

"You forgot to add that there are other men outside!!" She smiled.

"There you go again...you need round six right?"

"See Smart, i don't care whatever you do to me!" She unlocked the door and faced him, "i regret the day i paid my own bride price...you're not a man...you are a pathetic woman beater, a murderer, a bastard...i swear I'll leave you alone in this house, you'll pay the rent, feed yourself, Bleep yourself..Bleep other men..."

"The neighbours..."

"Seriously, i don't care if the whole world listens! Now i pay the rent so this house belongs to me and I'm gonna throw you out right now, right away!"

Smart grew stiff, "what did Christ say..."

"Shut your fvucken mouth..who's Christ to you...I'm getting a lawyer, we'll work the papers out...and soon you'll be out of my life. Many people out there survive on crumbs but they are far more better than me...Fifty thousand a month, with less stress. Is a job where everyone pray for...but look at me, looking like a beggar. A good job, an average pay but i haven't bought a thing for myself...i sacrificed everything for you..i dropped my dreams of going abroad for my masters just for you..just to build this bloody marriage..bro, i can't take it again!" She screamed till she cried and spat blood.
Neighbours came to her rescue.
"Leave me...leave me...." She screamed and faced them.
"Look at my face..."She smiled. "If you guys don't advise him to leave that house, when I'm back he'll have to kill me! Cuz I'll be back with my lawyer and...." She shook her head.

"Vera calm down..." her neighbours tried to comfort her.

"Woman!" He screamed from the sitting room. "The lawyer won't force me to sign the papers...i won't sign the bloody papers..i mean it!"

Vera smiled. She limped towards the lintel, "then be ready to slam my head to the wall, the same way you did to Victoria...be ready to kill me the same way you killed her because when I'm back. You'll leave or i leave...either ways i win!"

"What about your vows...in life, in death, in sorrow, in joy..." Smart screamed back.

"That shouldn't be your problem, vows do get broken, isn't it?" She replied.

"Honey, let's move in and settle this...don't watch your dirty linen in the public..i still love you!" He moved outside and went on his knees. "My neighbours, since we've parked in here, have i looked for anyone's trouble? I love this lady"

"If you love am, you no for do her this kind thing...see her face..see how you deh maltreat fine girl!" A neighbour voiced out.

By now, Smart was shedding tears, "Married people do disagree..don't they? Lord knows I've been trying to work things out" He crawled towards Vera, "I'm empty, i confess..my life is bleak, i confess..i don't know my next step in life, i confess...leaving now is suicide. You're my lifeline, my treasure, my gold..you worth more..please!" He sobbed. "Don't let the devil poison your heart..I'll do anything you want..I'll go with you to the Prophet..I'll get a job..i....." He raised his voice and cried.

The neighbours were moved to tears, seeing a man like Smart cry.
"Please forgive am..marriage na for better for worst...please.." They begged.

Vera couldn't hold it, she fell on the ground and cried too.
They held each other and cried so heavily.

The romantic, emotional moment was too touch to behold, so the neighbours dispersed, leaving only the aprokos and the amebos. You know those type will watch any scene to the fullest so as to get a upper hand of the news so as to gossip.
Smart led his wife inside and closed the door.
Maybe he had repented, maybe he hadn't ...

°•°•°•°•°•
The sitting room bore a solemn aura. With half the occupants on bandage.
Mr. Umanah and his wife sat together with face screwed in deep hatred and anger.
Bernice sat on the opposite sofa, her right hand was on a sling while the other was on a plaster of paris. She gritted her teeth occasionally.
Lydia had a bandage crossed over her forehead her face was filled with bruises. Her once pretty face was disfigured.
She narrowly escaped death as she lost a foetus. The other two foetus were in a critical condition. Her front enamel was missing. She wasn't the pretty lady we all knew again. Maybe with time, because her injuries were still fresh.
Inspector Timi had a grim look, a part of his face was on plaster. He was fidgeting with a look of uncertainty.
Mr.Bolaji was the only free man without a bandage, his agbada was sparkling with a bishop cap on the crown of his head. He kept looking at everyone and smiling.

After the incidence, Timi contacted an ambulance which conveyed everyone to the hospital. They were admitted into the intensive care unit before being transferred for treatment.
Lydia's case was very critical but she a fighter, fought back to life.
Timi personally came to the realization that he was at fault. Impregnanting two sisters?
That was the height of wickedness, in this century.
He knew he had to confess his deeds and ask for forgiveness. He was the reason behind Lydia's craziness.
After the family recovered at the hospital, he had to apply a big caution and wisdom to assemble them once more. But he was scared that Lydia could go gaga and disrupt everything again, so he had no choice but to invite his uncle in. He knew deep down that Lydia respected him a big deal.
Somehow, he felt pity for Lydia..no not pity, a tinge of love mixed with compassion. She sat on the floor like someone who lost everything. But her face never showed pains.
She was one hell of a fighter, and he admired that. With the right training, she would've been an asset in the classified facet of the Nigerian army.

"Ehmmm" Timi got up and swallowed a lump back to his throat. He didn't know where to start.

"Mr. Man, go straight to the point!" Mr. Umanah barked.

Timi flinched a bit but later recomposed himself. "I'm sorry for the event of the few days...my presence caused a breach in peace and...."

"You are not to blame my son...i blame that devil of a lady sitted on the floor...i curse you from the deep of my heart...you'll never see peace...you'll die before your time.."Mr. Umanah cursed. "You'll never see your ch...."

"Is okay sir!" Mr. Bolaji got up. "Don't curse the beautiful lady!"

"That girl is a witch..if you were present a day before yesterday, you would've been sitted here with a bandage!" Mr. Umanah said. "I'm just here for my daughter!" He pointed at Bernice. "A good lady will never lay a hand on her father...i curse her...bitch..prostitute..good for nothing...demon...may the Lord put you in front of a truck...may dangote truck crush you!" Mr. Umanah broke into tears.

Lydia wiped a stray tear off her cheek.

"Sir, I'm at fault!" Timi said. He looked down in shame as his eyes met Bernice.

"How?" Everyone apart from Lydia chorused.

"My son" Mrs.Mkpoikanna stood up with a little difficulty. "Leave those things alone...go straight to the point, we are already your inlaws..you are not at fault. You see this cursed witch" She pointed at Lydia, "Lord knows i already told her father to disown her..her future is damn..." She spat directly on Lydia. "If you need our blessing, you have it!" She sat down.

Lydia used a small hanky to wipe the spittle of her face.

"Woman..."Bolaji got up. "Don't you have respect? Men are sitted here...and you open your mouth to spit on someone in my presence!"

"Uncle please!" Timi tried to plead.

"I will rebandage you..i swear! Woman you must apologise or this meeting will not hold!" Bolaji screamed.

Timi sighed in regret, bringing his Uncle was a bad idea.

"Old man...is not your business on how i treat a dog!" Mrs.Mkpoikanna screamed.

Bolaji pulled out his cap and jumped on top of the chair, "I will pull down this house now...you dare challenge me! I am a custodian of the Nigerian tradition..you must apologise now!"

"Will you come down from my chair! Because you don't have one at home!" She spat.

"I will not boast about my properties but i blame my antelopastic nephew for bringing me here to sit with babadox!" He jumped down from the chair and flipped over the centre table. "Mr.man! I will take this case seriously if your wife doesn't apologise!"

Mr.Umanah got up. "I apologise on her behalf...but if you were here the day she fought us...you won't take sides or pity her!"

Bolaji chuckled. "You mean one lady did this to you all..she is in a good shape...Lydia, you are wasting your time" He jumped repeatedly. "Your place is in the army or secret agent!"

"Uncle...let me speak!" Timi said.

"Lydia is not a slave, she must sit on a chair not on the ground!" Bolaji said.

"I respect you sir, but you can't pass your orders here! I've disowned her" Mr.Umanah said.

"And I've owned her" Bolaji said.

"Uncle issokay..." She voiced out for the first time. "I'm not a property that can be swapped!"

"You are carrying an Ekiti blood!" He faced Timi, "You sit here doing nothing, while your lady is on the floor...what really happened?"

Everyone were suprised.

Mr.Umanah stood up, "Who's carrying Ekiti blood?"

"Ehmmm!" Timi stammered. "His uncle, though unconsiously, just helped him relay the news. But he wondered if his uncle smoked before coming.

Mr. Umanah fixed the puzzle.
"You got Lydia pregnant?"

Timi and Bolaji nodded.

"Cheiiiii! Abasi mi mbok!!!!! You also got my daughter pregnant!" Mrs.Mkpoikanna screamed.

"Whose daughter?" Bolaji asked.

Bernice screamed and rushed out of the sitting room.

In one swift mode, Bolaji lifted Timi off the ground on his shoulders. In a fu stance.(Johncena's signature)

"Uncle, it is not like that?" Timi screamed as he struggled.

"It is like what? I will break ya waist today!" In one quick move, he slammed Timi on the hard tiled floor.

To my esteemed literati(s)

A big sorry to you all..
Due to my schedule, i might not be able to deliver five or maybe six times a week.
I tried writing yesterday but the spirit wasn't moving...maybe stress!

But today, on my word...I'll be dropping a long one!

Vera is just like most victims of violence. They find it difficult to leave,no matter how many times they decide to. And are easily manipulated!

Glad timi finally owned up to been at fault!

And I also don't want timi and Lydia together. She deserves better.

Thanks noble.
