my father's wife(last episode of season 1) and beginning of season 2

THE FINALE“Where am i? I murmured on drifting back to the world of consciousness.My head was throbbing hard threatening to rip openfrom the hard headache that welcomed me back to the planet.My eyes felt heavy and seemed not to intend to open but i tried harder and they sluggishly clasped open though it was half way.The blurry visual image reported to my
brain.The wall was cream coloured letting out whitish intruding colours from the glow of two long fluorescent light that beamed down white photons with serious brightness.The window was covered in a mini blue curtain that barely covered everything, the bed was not as large as mine and gave slight metalic groans under me.Could make out a not very clear figure in the surrounding seeming not be moving.“Where am i” i intoned again, this time a bit loud and a lot of pain came from it, and i noticed i had a transparent oxygen mask that ran from the upper part of my nose down to my jaw..The face became a bit clearer, that bright brown eyes, those dimples, radiant teeth and perky nose all sculptured in an oval chocolate face..“Mama!” I intoned with hot tears sliding down the side of my face.“My Johny, You will be fine” those silky slim voice that always made me feel safe when they sing me lullabies.“Sky is awake!” i heard an exciting sound from no where as a figure began moving towards me.I widened my eyes, my iris adjusting to the bright photons that intruded immediately and my vision began to clear more.. couldn’t see mama anymore.Jessy ran to me beside the bed with a smile and tears on her face and from the eye bags around her eyes it was obvious she was stressed out.“Nnam you are awake” I heard papa’s broad voice intone as an intruding wall of hands were clasped around me immediately.I winced in pain making papa release himself from me as fast as he could.I looked down and i was covered in bandages, my right leg was inclined at an angle of 45 degrees. white bandages ran all the way from my feet to my waist and i could feel piercing pains on my right knee, and waist.My hands too were in bandages and the left arm gave me excruciating pains..“Where am i?” I groaned out again..“Nnam you are in the hospital” Papa intoned with visible unshed tears in his eyes..“What am i doing here”“You have been out for one week, you fell from the stairs. I thought you wouldn’t survive, i thank God you are back to me now” Papa came again running his hands all of over my fore-head.My mind raced back to the last things i could remember.From Papa’s first shout of my name when he came in, to amanda kneeling down.“Yes yes, where is Amanda now” My mind asked but i couldn’t bring myself to ask that.Fresh warm tears tickled down my eyes again, running from the corners down to the side of my ears because of my lying position.Jessy sat holding my right hand with both of her hands trying to force out a smile.“Papa i am sorry, please forgive me. I am so sorry” I cried out, the stream of tears now running freely across my face tickling down into the bed.“Nnam please don’t say that again, it was all my fault and it almost cost me your life” Papa blurted out his voice now turning croaky as it resounded from the back of his throat. Those held back tears escaped and ran down his face which he tried wiping off with the back of his hands immediately.Jessy was also crying, her grip on my hands increased.The air felt like it ceased, the curtains were motionless and no sound could be heard.“Ejimam please forgive me, i have wronged you both. this was all my fault. You lost a mother and needed a mother but instead i followed my foolish desires and got myself a wife and not a mother for you. Please ejimam forgive me” Papa sang out looking interchangeably from me to jessy. the lines on his face appeared more making him seem a bit older.“Papa its ok” Jessy intoned, tears now flowing down her face like a waterfall.Papa took Jessy into his arms embracing her tight muttering discernable semi-audible words “am sorry”Both of them crashed themselves into me now, trying as much as possible to avoid the injured areas but yet the pain was there, i didn’t mind having papa and Jessy here with me now was moreintense than the pains.The door cracked open gently letting in a strange figure, female figure.“Chioma!” I breathed out, as the creature became clearer.“Chioma have been here with Jessy for the past oneweek that you have been in a coma” Surprisingly this came from papa.I looked up weakly and was met with a smile on papa’s face.Chioma sat beside jessy beaming down on me with an intense look that sent chills down my body.“What about Amanda?” I managed to let out to no one exactly.I could hear papa give out a heavy sigh making me look up to him.“Nnam Amanda is pregnant and she have gone back to her parents, i will take care of her till she delivers and i will take responsibility for the child” i heard from papa.My life was broken, but i could see hope for the pieces coming back together again.I learnt my lesson and i learnt it the hard way almost loosing my life and i might not be able to walk for months.Looking around me, could see papa, jessy and chioma smiling down on me. Life finally is smiling on me and everything that is important to me is starting my life anew with me.In my greed lust and pains, i have found meaning tolife and i think i have found love..(Never allow your desires and greed to shut you outfrom the path of reason…)THE END…season 2 of my father's wife starts bellow
season 2
episode 1
I can’t believe it’s actually 5years now, 5 solid yearsgone in a whim.5 years of not seeing papa and my skybeauty, and 5years of not seeing Nigeria.After my stay in the hospital, we were discharged when i was deemed strong enough by the doctor.I spent a month without walking, using a wheel chair all that while.That was the most tormenting period of my life, confined to just seat on a wheel chair, pushed around by people whenever i wanted to step out, made worse by the haunting images of Amanda.After many therapies and home check ups by doctors i finally stood on my feet again, it felt like heaven to be able to use my legs again. Little wonder those little beads of crystal tears that fell from my face.Few months after my full recovery, I was sent to London to finish my studies, away from any thing that can bring memories of Amanda back.The first few months in London were filled with such tormenting images that always made my heartskip beats.The day papa caught me with Amanda, her pregnancy, what would happen to her?All these questions haunted me even in London.After a year in London, my memories of Amanda began to wane and fade, i even forgot she was ever pregnant.My life pulled together again and i graduated from Sheffield University with 2nd class honour in Micro-biology.It was time to go home after all these years.The plane touched down in Mutala Muhammed airport in Lagos, it taxied through the run way de-accelerating with each passing second until it came to a full halt.Tele-like voice of the pilot flickered out through the speakers as he made some announcements and uttered out some welcome back words. **am sure he must be really proud of himself now**I was not even interested in whatever he was yapping, whatever it was sounded like an unclear radio broadcast to me being among the first to rise from my seat, i was eager to see home.Stepping out of the huge white flying shark, i drew adeep breath filling my lungs with as much air as possible perceiving a mixture of freshness and a familiar soothing warmth.“This definitely is Nigeria” i smiled to myself assuring myself that i wasn’t taken to the wrong country.“Sky!” that ever familiar silky voice rang into my earsas i stepped into the airport lounge. It was strangelyslimmer now.My face tilted itself to the direction the voice came and their she was, tearing through the mazes of people littering the airport lounge, a broad smile was glued to her face, eyes glued on me.I almost lost my balance and fell as Jessy dumped her whole weight on me with a scream, wrapping her hands tightly around me. I could notice people’swatching eyes fixed on us. **People no deh like mind their business shaa** But this is skybeauty; my twin or you can say my other half, i don’t mind staying like that forever.Jessy had changed remarkably, she was a bit taller and slimmer now, her face seeming a bit more oval and an aura of pride and womanliness oozed around her in every sense.She was a medical doctor now, i remember sendingher a silvery stethoscope when she told me she finished her final M.B.B.S exams and is now a graduate, that was last year.Couldn’t be more proud of my Skybeauty who have grown into a fine young woman.“Nnam nnoo (Welcome) ” I heard papa intone making me shift my gaze from Jessy to papa as he walked up to me, Jessy must have left him behind when she ran to meet me..As i last remembered, papa was as neatly and smartly dressed as always; adorning an ash coloured jumper with senator collar.He seemed a little older to me and his pregnant-likeprotruding stomach looked smaller now.“Papa” I blurted out a smile sweeping across my face.Papa took my right hands into his in a handshake, tapping my other shoulder with his left hand “My little boy is now a full grown man” his voice filtered into my ears inducing a sense of pride and self consciousness in me.I still remember as a kid, how i used to complain he didn’t shake me too after he shakes his visitors thatalways poured in.he would always say “You are still a boy nnam, when you grow into a man you get handshakes”.“Clearly i am now a man” my mind rang making me widen my already wide grin.“Papa, you look strong” I said taking him in for a slight hug. 5years is not that near.Papa and Jessy led me out of the lounge certainly to the car outside so we can start the journey back to Enugu. Papa never liked travelling by air.Jessy kept asking questions, giving me little exciting punches and nudges; This girl probably still thinks we were still teenagers or even kids..**lol**anyway it’s good to be back home..continues in episode 2
