When they got to Joe’s house, Nora helped him to his room. “Use the room opposite the living room second door on your left” Joe directed her.
“The first one is for my son”
“You have a son?” Nora asked Smiling.
“Yeah” Joe responded, “He is a medical doctor, and I am sure you will meet him any time soon”
“and what about your wife?” Nora asked as she applied some cream on his legs.
Joe was silent for a while and then he said, “my wife died seven years ago.
“Oh sorry” Nora said in a soft tone.
“It’s okay” he said.
Nora finished massaging his legs and gave him his medication.
“let me ask the maid to prepare you something to eat ” she told him before leaving the room.
She removed her things and placed them neatly in the wardrobe. She removed her shoes and put on a flat slippers. Nora looked around the room, she could tell from the quality of the furniture of the house and neat display of things that Joe, though she addressed him as Mr Aloba, was wealthy. She started thinking about Mr Joseph Aloba and what could have made him lonely. She could sense sadness in his heart . The only time she saw him smile genuinely was when she had agreed to come take care of him. She couldn’t help but wonder what had transpired between Joe and his son. “If this man has such a beautiful house with servants and all. Why not live together with his only son?”
Shrugging, she decided to let go of such thoughts. “I’m here to work and whatever is going on with this man is not my business”. She sighed as she lay down enjoying the comfort of the bedroom. Smilling, she dialled her mother’s phone number and waited for her to pick.
“Yes mom, I called to tell you I have moved in with the patient I told you about.”
“Oh that’s good Nora, Racheal resplied “How is it going so far.?”
“It’s good mom. I just finished unpacking my things in the room I was given.”
“Thank God sweety. just take care of yourself for us okay? ”
“Yes mom dear” Nora told her.
Someone knocked softly at the door.
” Mom I will talk to you later. I have to go. Give my love to dad and brother.”
“Sure sweety” Racheal answered disconnecting the call.
“Madam!” the maid called out as she opened the door.
“Pease call me Nora ” she corrected her.
“Okay ” the maid smiled, “I came to ask if I can take oga’s food to him now.”
” Let me handle it” Nora said walking her to the kitchen.
She walked in Joe’s room holding a tray of food. Joe had closed his eyes but was not sleeping. he opened his eyes when Nora walked in. “Hello Sir,” she called him “time for food”
He smiled. “I am not hungry but not to waste your effort I will eat something.”
Nora got the small glass table and placed it on the bed and helped Joe to sit right.
“I am going out in case you need anything you just call my name” She said and was about going out when Joe called out.
“No Nora please sit, just get yourself a plate of food and join me here.”
Nora declined the offer but when Joe insisted she took her food and sat on the couch with him.
“So tell me” Joe cleared his throat, “Are you from around here? I mean Umege.”
Eh..No Sir” she replied. “I am from Edo State but my family came to Asaba for work.”
“That’s nice” Joe said. “So how is Umege so far? ”
“Actually fun” she said nodding her head. “I think I like a few nice places here”
Joe smiled. ” So you have always wanted to be a nurse?”
Nora nodded. “Yes Sir, it is a dream come true. I love what I do”
“I noticed that” Joe added.
“You have something in common with my son Nathan he too had always wanted to help people in the hospital. Despite trying to persuade him to do some business courses and take over the company from me, my late wife always supported and encouraged him. I am sure she could have been proud of him”. He told her
After they finished eating, the maid collected the plates. Joe’s phone rang and Nora excused herself. “I will be in my room” she told him and Joe nodded as he picked the call.
“Yes Nathan. ”
“Hello dad, how are you feeling? ” Nathan asked him.
“much better but I still can’t feel anything from my legs. I did as you suggested, the nurse moved in today”
“Oh great ” Nathan said. “At least you have someone to help you.”
” Glad about that” Joe said.
“Well dad I think I will come stay with you for some days, till next week”. Nathan told his father.
“Your presence means a lot ” Joe told his son. “I will appreciate it.”
” Yeah sure” he responded hanging up.
Later that evening Nathan walked into the house. He went straight to his father’s room and talked to him for a while.
“So what did the doctor say dad? ” he asked sitting besides him. He noticed his father had lost some weight over the weeks. He felt pity for him. He wished his father had chosen a better path of life. His drinking habits had landed him in this state.
“They are not even very certain I will walk again. I don’t know” he said almost in tears. “I just feel bad my life hasn’t been on the right track for some time now. Maybe God is purnishing me now for my sins.”
Nathan looked at him and felt bad. “Please dad don’t talk like I’m sure you will walk again. I just hope you won’t go back to drinking beer again. It’s high time you let go and let it be something of the past.
Joe sighed. “I know Nathan. I promise to change. I need to work hard and put the company in the right track that’s your inheritance and I want to leave it standing before I die”.
Nathan smiled. ” You don’t have to worry about me father. You gave me education and for me that’s enough. you don’t have to kill yourself with work for me.” Nathan said.
“You are my only son Nathan and most important person I now have left”. Nathan looked at his father, he wondered what he meant as far as he was concerned, his father didn’t love his mother (Nancy) but he kept it to himself..
“Get some rest dad” Nathan told him. “Let me see your nurse and find out one or two things about your condition” he said standing up
“She is in the room next to yours” Joe told him.
