I sighed as i got up from the bed.
I rubbed my burning forehead and sniffled.
I was having runny nose since yesterday night.
I couldn’t sleep and kept tossing and turning on the bed thinking about Tammy of course.
It’s morning and i just have to get up and prepare for school,we all planned to resume school today, we’ve missed some days.
I opened my wardrobe and brought out my school wears with underwear.
I sneezed twice and placed my school wears on the bed.
I walked into the bathroom and headed for my toothbrush and paste.
I sometimes get tired of this morning routine..
I walked out of the bathroom with a towel draped over my waist.
I dried my body and applied body lotion before reaching for my underwear.
I put it on and reached for my school shirt…
I stood in front of my mirror after putting on my school wears.
I don’t like the way i look…my nose looks so red making my pale skin obvious.
Should i still go to school?
Yeah…i will,seeing Tammy can make me feel better.
I put on my shoes and re-brushed my hair.
I picked my backpack and hung it over my shoulders.
I picked an hankie and blew my nose into it.
I picked two more and kept it in my backpack.
I walked out of my room….
“Good morning Mum” I greeted loudly from the dining room.
She’s in the kitchen and i don’t think i have that strength to walk there.
What’s wrong with me this morning.
I quickly took a seat on the dining chair and rested my head on the dining table.
I heard mum’s footstep.
“Kelly your breakfast is ready” She said followed by a sound of a ceramic plate hitting the dining table.
“Kelly” She called again and this time i managed to raise up my head.
“Gosh!” She exclaimed.
“What’s wrong?” She asked.
“Nothing” I said and noticed my voice sounded hoarse.
“You look sick…” She said and felt my body temperature with the back of her palm.
“What?” I asked.
“Why didn’t you tell me you are sick?” She asked.
“I’m not sick..just a runny nose,I’m just gonna eat my breakfast and leave for school” I said and pushed the tray forward.
“No way I’m letting you go to school in this condition,you are coming with me to the hospital” She said.
“Mum which condition…I’m
“Go drop your backpack,let’s leave for the hospital” She said.
“I’m not going to the hospital,we all planned to resume school today” I sniffled and rubbed my forehead,i felt nauseated and strongly restrained the urge to vomit.
“Kelly you are not looking fine,you need to see the way you are now.. you’re getting me worried,let’s just go to the hospital”
“I’m not going Mum” I said weakly and rested my head on the chair’s headrest.
“Geez! Kelly are you okay,if you won’t come with me to the hospital,then I’m calling your dad” She said.
“Mum! I’m fine, don’t get too dramatic about this… I’ll be leaving for school now” I said and wanted to stand up from the chair but couldn’t.
I sighed as my eyes started getting dizzy,i tried to look okay just for Mum but it got worse and i finally let out a groan.
“Tina come in!” Mum shouted.
My eyelids felt heavy and i had to close my eyes.
I don’t know if i fell asleep or unconscious but the last thing i heard was “Kelly!!”
“Bryan what happen?” I asked as we sat in the cafeteria..
It’s lunch break.
“Aren’t you aware Kelly is not in school today?” He asked.
“Of course i am” I said and chewed on my fries.
“You are not bothered?” He asked.
“Why should i be bothered,is he sick?” I asked.
“I don’t know” He said.
“Then you shouldn’t be bothered,he might just decide not to come to school today” I said and picked a slice of Ellen’s cake,she glared at me and i chuckled.
“He just can’t decide not to come to school today without a reason,we all agreed to resume school today” Bryan said.
I sighed…”So why do you think he’s not in school today?”
“I don’t know but i feel if he’s okay,he should have called me and told me the reason he’s absent from school” He said.
“Have you tried calling him?” Laura asked.
“Of course…he isn’t picking up” Bryan said worriedly.
“OMG!” Laura suddenly exclaimed.
“What?” We asked.
“I hope his parents have not resumed their fight” She said with alarm.
“That’s true!” Bryan said.
“Geez! I hope not” I said and chewed my last fry.
“I’m gonna try calling him again” Bryan said.
The cafeteria light will be off soon and we’ll go on to our class.
I eyed the last piece of cake on Ellen’s plate.
She frowned and quickly stuffed it in her mouth.
“Ugh! So stingy” I said with nose high.
“He’s not picking up” Bryan said.
“I just hope he’s okay” I said.
“Well let’s go to the class” I said and stood up.
“Won’t you wait for the light to go off?” Laura asked.
“We’ve all finished eating and I’m getting tempted to order more,so if i don’t leave here on time then…..”
“Let’s go” Ellen stood up, followed by Laura then Bryan.
We walked back to the class, Bryan kept murmuring about Kelly.
“Should we go check on Kelly at home?” Bryan asked as we all headed to our cars in the parking lot.
“But why?” I asked.
“He wasn’t in school today”
“So? He might be busy Bryan, he’ll come tomorrow” I said not feeling like going to anyone’s house. I want to go home, freshen up,eat and then sleep.
I’m so tired,the whole class bombarded me with questions when i walked into the class this morning and i had to answer them all.
They were all happy I’ve resumed school but i keep having this unamed feeling concerning the remaining one year im gonna use.
Quilah is gone doesn’t mean the seal is changed.
I’m gonna go confirm from Doc Mart,i will redo the test,if it comes out that I’m safe then good but if it comes out like I’m thinking,I’m just gonna keep it to myself and prepare on my departure in the next year to come.
“He’s calling!” Bryan almost shouted, making me close the door to my thoughts.
He smiled as he swiped to the receiver,he placed it on his ear and we all waited.
📞 Hey buddy…
**We didn’t hear what Kelly was saying at the other end but i furrowed my brows when his face changed.
📞Kelly was unconscious?” He asked and we gasped.
📞W..where is he?” He asked.
📞We are on our way.
“Kelly was about coming to school this morning when he fell unconscious” Bryan said and a tear dropped out of his eyes.
Why is he crying?
“What happened to him exactly?” Laura asked.
“I don’t know till we get there” He said.
“Damn! We need to go see him” Ellen said.
“He’s conscious now right?” I asked.
“Yeah…he’s at home with his mum and doctor”
“Let’s go check on him fast,i need to go home” I said.
They turned to look at me and i gave them a questioning look.
“What? Why are you all staring at me. Let’s go check on Kelly..whose car are we going in?” I asked.
“My car” Bryan said.
“Alright,a minute. I gotta tell Max to go home” i said and headed to where Max is standing,the rest also did the same except Bryan.
“Hey Max, good afternoon” i greeted.
“How are you?”
“I’m fine,we just got a call that Kelly is sick so we’re all going to his house in Bryan’s car” i said.
“Alright..I’m free to leave then?”
“Of course…bye Max” I said.
I turned and started walking back to Bryan’s car, Ellen was also doing so and we both met and walked together.
“Mara” She called.
“Huh?” I asked.
“Do you hate Kelly?” She asked.
“Gosh! Hell no,why would you say that?” I asked.
“I’m very sure if it was Bryan that fell unconscious,you
“What do you mean?” I asked.
“We were told Kelly fell unconscious and you didn’t act like you care, that’s unfair” She said.
“I didn’t act like i care? Of course i care, Kelly is my friend so why won’t i care and what am i being unfair about?” I asked unhappily.
“You both should hurry up” Bryan shouted from his car.
We quickened our steps and we were in Bryan’s car in no time.
Rollins drove into Kelly’s compound and parked at a suitable spot.
We all stepped out of the car and Bryan, Laura and Ellen already dashed to the door.
What’s wrong with these ones?
I also ran after them,i don’t want anyone saying i don’t care again.
His mum opened the door and i saw her face red with tears.
Is he not yet conscious?
“What happened to Kelly?” We chorused.
She smiled…”He fell unconscious in the morning but my doctor has attended to him,he’s fine now” She said.
Bryan heaved a loud sigh of relief.
“Thank goodness” I muttered.
“My bad! You all should come in” She said and paved way for us.
We entered and i was a little bit wowed.
This is the first time i will be allowed into Kelly’s living room and this is the second time i will be visiting his house.
“He’s in his room right?” Bryan asked.
“Yeah, what do you all care for?” She asked.
“We are okay ma’am” we chorused.
“Let’s go check on him” Bryan said and started walking towards the stairs.
“Do you know his room?” I asked.
He laughed…”of course”.
We followed his lead until we got to Kelly’s door.
He pulled it open and we walked in.
I was wowed again by the setting of his room.
Kelly is really living big and yet he acts like one poor guy.
He’s sleeping cutely on the bed,with an almost finished drip connected to his arm.
A beautiful female doctor was beside him, packing her things back into a box.
“Good afternoon” We greeted.
“Good afternoon”She smiled..”You are gonna wake him” She said to Bryan who was already beside Kelly.
“Is he going to be fine?” He asked.
“Of course he will..infact,he
“What really happened to him? Why was he unconscious?” Laura asked.
“He has been thinking a lot,and having sleepless nights. Having little sleep can make one weak. His was so much to the extent that he fell unconscious,he will be fine” She said.
“What could he be thinking about?” Ellen asked.
Bryan glanced at me and i sighed.
“Bryan can you tell me what Kelly is thinking about,his dad and i already stopped fighting” Kelly’s mum said worriedly.
I hadn’t noticed she came in behind us.
“I..i don’t know what he could be thinking about” Bryan said glancing at me occasionally.
Why the glance huh?
I’m not the one he’s thinking about,he’s thinking about the school work he has missed not me!
Kelly’s mum followed the doctor out of the room.
Thank goodness the doctor said he will be fine,
I have to leave now…I need to go rest.
I cleared my throat.
“I would have loved to wait till he wakes up but i have to go” I said.
“Mara!” Bryan exclaimed while Laura and Ellen glared at him.
“What?” I asked confusingly.
“You mean you are leaving?” He asked.
“Bryan was that the reason you yelled?” I asked.
“Why would you leave!”
“Why won’t i leave? Should i babysit him! The doctor said he’s fine and i need to go home to rest,I’m not feeling so well” I said, getting pissed they are thinking that I’m not caring enough.
“Mara that’s not nice” Laura said .
“Seriously what’s wrong with you Mara?” Ellen asked.
“What’s all this?” I restrained myself from yelling.
“You can leave if you want to, we’ll tell him you stop by” Bryan said.
“Alright,then why the yell… Bye guys,see you all tomorrow” I said and turned to leave.
“Mara like seriously you are leaving?” Laura asked.
“What?!” I yelled loudly turning in the process.
They shifted back.
“What do you want me to do? Consider my explanation also, you’ll thinking I’m not caring..I am! Kelly is my friend and i care about him but i just have to go home,i don’t understand how I’m feeling..i need to leave” I said and walked to the door.
I held the door knob and turned,they all stood staring at me.
I saw Kelly’s eyes open.
“He’s awake” I said to them, turned the door knob and walked out of the room.
I alighted from the cab in front of my house and walked to the gate.
I paid him already.
I knocked on the gate waiting for James.
The gate was opened but not by James but Max.
“Where’s James?” I asked.
“He went to get something” He said.
“Okay” i said and started walking to the main door.
“How’s your friend feeling and you are back earlier than we thought ” Max said.
“He’s fine and do you think I’m gonna spend the night there?” I asked and walked to the door.
I’m not usually this rude but why do everyone keep expecting me to spend the whole time with Kelly.
I opened the door and walked in.
Liam and Mum was at the living room and surprisingly none of them was watching movie.
“Mara how’s Kelly?” Liam asked.
“Good afternoon Mum” I greeted.
“How’s Kelly?” Liam asked again.
“He’s fine” i said and started walking up to my room.
“Mara” he called.
“What?” I turned.
“I said how’s Kelly?” He asked.
“LIAM, AND I HE’S FINE” I shouted before i could stop myself.
“What’s wrong?” Mum asked.
“You mean what’s wrong with me or Kelly?” I asked.
“Kelly,i can understand your mood right now” She said.
Understand my mood?
“Kelly fell unconscious in the morning but now he’s fine,placed on drip” I said.
“Why are you home?” Liam asked.
“Am i to sleep on the road?” I asked.
“Is Bryan still with him?” He asked.
“Yeah with Laura and Ellen ” I said.
“Then why are you home,can’t you also wait with the poor guy?” He asked.
“The doctor said he’ll be fine or rather he’s fine so what else do i have to wait for?” I asked.
“Mara that’s unfair, Kelly stood by you and refused to go home while you were at the hospital and now he’s sick,I’m very sure you didn’t spend up to an hour with him. What the hell is wrong with you?” Liam blasted.
“What the fuck is wrong with everyone! Do you’ll expect me to spend the whole day and night with him. I know he stood by me at the hospital but i don’t just know how I’m feeling, that’s the reason i just have to come home and besides he’s FINE! Go babysit him if you wish” I hissed and started climbing the stairs.
“Liam, let her be” Mum shouted.
I turned and saw Liam at the edge of the stairs.
I chuckled “Were you about to hit me?”
“I can’t hit you but do you really have to be this way? Kelly confessed his feelings to you does not mean you should treat him this way,this is totally unfair!” He said.
“Everyone should just leave me alone! Let me be!” I yelled and stomped to my room.
I sighed angrily as i entered my room.
I dropped my backpack on the couch and started pulling off my shoes.
I was about sitting on the bed when i noticed i felt wet.
I stood straight and quickly walked to the calendar.
It was yesterday i marked but it turned out to be today.
Damn! I should have known there was more to my mood swing.
It’s a shame mum knows me than i know myself.
If i dont feel pains when on my period then my mood takes the blame.
No wonder i didn’t feel so good and was yelling at everyone.
But is this really the reason i don’t want to stay with Kelly?…I guess so but i would have stayed with him if i like so I’m not gonna blame my mood for that.
I feel like spanking myself..I can’t believe i yelled at Bryan,what would he think of me? I’m just gonna apologise to him tomorrow.
I was done freshening up and was putting on my blue tank top,my black shorts came next and i combed my hair.
I packed it in a high ponytail, slipped into my footwear and walked out of my room.
I saw Liam and Mum at the living room but this time they were watching a movie.
I felt bad about the way i spoke to Liam but I’m not gonna apologise first.
It’s not my fault but this nature of a thing.
I walked to the kitchen.
I sighed and thought of what to make,i just wished we had a Kitchener.
Noodles will be fine.
I sat at the dining eating the noodles i prepared when Liam walked past me to the kitchen.
Well..I remained some noodles for him.
I thought he was eating the noodles i prepared for him but was surprised when he came out with a cup of cereal, milk,sugar and water all placed on a tray.
He walked past me to the living room and then i know he’s really angry with me.
Like i care!
I continued eating my noodles staring at the wall and thinking in the process.
Im sure Kelly saw me walked out of his room.
What actually got into me to behave that way.
I had known things won’t be the same between us anymore the moment he confessed his feelings to me but that does not bring about what i did today.
Fine! I’m just gonna apologise.
“Mum..I will be in my room” i said after i finished washing the dish.
“Alright” She said.
My eyes met with Liam,he gave me a glare before looking away.
I shrugged and climbed the stairs to my room.
I opened the door and stepped in.
A chill ran down my spine and i quickly scanned my room.
What was i expecting.
Why do i feel like going back to the living room.
I closed the door behind me and walked to my bed.
I picked my phone as i sat down.
I thought of calling Bryan but later resorted to playing games.
Aaaargh…I have some assignments to do.
I dropped my phone and stared at my backpack on the shelf.
“Can’t you just come meet me yourself,do i have to always get up to get you” I said tiredly.
I got the shock of my life when the backpack moved from the shelf down to bed,just beside me.
„DONT SHOUT,YOU WON’T BE HEARD“ The most gentle voice I’ve ever heard said.
I opened my eyes and saw the most handsome man on Earth in a pure white robe.
His face alone made me felt at ease,he looks kind but i was still scared.
How did he get in here?
„IM KIMPTHUD,THE GOD OF PEACE“
„I’VE BEEN HERE FOR SOME HOURS BUT I CHOSE TO REMAIN INVISIBLE TO YOU,I GOT YOUR BACKPACK FOR YOU, DIDN’T YOU WISH FOR IT TO COME TO YOU“ He chuckled and i held myself from smiling.
“You are a the god of peace?” I asked.
I’m not surprised he knows my name.
“Do you by any chance know Quilah?” I asked.
„YES, SHE’S A FRIEND OF MINE. SHE WASN’T SO KIND,SHE MISUSED HER POWERS,HER DEPARTURE WAS A SAD ONE FOR ME AND I MISS HER DEARLY…IM HERE CONCERNING YOU“
“I? Is there anything?” I asked.
„I TRIED TO STOP QUILAH,WHEN SHE WAS ABOUT HURTING YOU,I WENT TO HER CAVE AND TOLD HER TO SPARE YOU BUT SHE REFUSED“
“You mean,you told her to spare me?”
“Wow! Thanks” I smiled.
„I DO THAT A LOT FOR QUILAH’S CAPTIVE,SHE LISTENS TO ME MOST OF THE TIME BUT SHE WAS SO ADAMANT ON YOUR CASE,I LEFT HER TO DO AS SHE WISHED AND THAT CAUSED HER DEPARTURE… REMEMBER QUILAH SAID YOU HAVE A YEAR TO LIVE,YOU THINK IT’S ALL GONE WITH QUILAH RIGHT? YOU ARE WRONG,YOU STILL HAVE A YEAR TO LIVE“ He said and my heart thumped faster.
I knew it!
“I don’t want to die, please help me” i said starting to cry.
„THERE’S NOTHING I CAN DO CAUSE QUILAH ALREADY SEALED IT, WHETHER IN HER DEPARTURE OR PRESENCE.. ANYTHING SHE SEALED WILL HAPPEN WITH NOTHING TO STOP IT,IF QUILAH HAD TAKEN BACK WHAT SHE GAVE YOU BEFORE SHE LEFT THEN YOU WILL BE SPARED BUT SHE DIDN’T,WHICH MEANS YOU ARE STILL AMONG HER CAPTIVES“
I bursted into tears…”Help me please i don’t want to die, please help me” I cried.
„I WISH THERE’S SOMETHING I CAN DO BUT THERE’S NOTHING,I CAN’T CHANGE ANYTHING QUILAH SEALS,I CAN ONLY PERSUADE HER TO CHANGE IT BUT NOW SHES GONE. I CAME TO TELL YOU THIS SO YOU WILL KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THE REST OF YOUR DAYS ON EARTH…ITS SO SAD LOVE BLINDED YOU TO DO WHAT YOU SHOULD HAVE NOT. I WILL LEAVE NOW“
“Plea…” I was pleading but noticed he already left.
“I knew it” i said and cried hard on the bed.
I have a year to live!!
