Angela entered the room with David,who
insisted he must go with her.Her parents were
sitted in the parlour with Adaora and Sonia,to
her surprise.She stared at her,that passion she
had to kill her was no longer there but the
hatred still lingered.
Her mood worsened.If she knew the reason her
father called her had something to do with
Sonia and her mother,she could her figured out
a reason not to come.
Sonia shifted closely to her mother,seeing
Angela and David.She carefully avoided their
eyes,still wondering why Angela’s parents had
brought her to their house.Could they have
brought her to apologise to Angela and her
husband so they can accept her back.She was
ready to apologise and confess to them if that
be the case but she was never ready to
continue working with them anymore.There
was no way she can stand their faces
everyday,knowing what she had done earlier.
“Mom,Dad,what’s going on?”Angela asked after
“Come my daughter,”Her father called her to sit
by his side,”My son,let her sit with me here”He
jokinly referred to David who smiled.
After a short silence,making Angela look at
everybody in confusion,Adaora began.
First with apologies on what she did to her half
sister Ngozi,out of envy,after their father died.
Angela’s eyes opened wide in disbelief.She was
related to her mother?
Sonia too,stole glances at her mother in
Adaora finally said it all while Mr.uwa brought
out the DNA result,handing it to
Angela,thinking she would be so happy
knowing that she has a sister.
Sonia shifted from her mother,her
mother?,standing some distance away from
She stared at Adaora,who bowed her head
low,supporting it with her hands.She was
Her eyes darted to Angela who was also looking
at her and their eyes locked.
Several thoughts and questions running
through their mind.
David too,became weak all of a sudden.This
shouldn’t be happening.
“Dad tell me its not true,”Angela stared at her
father and held her mom,”mom?”
They had thought she would be happy to hear
that she has a sister.The sister she always
wished she had.Her mother wondered what
Angela was thinking as she started shedding
tears,tears of which knew were not of joy.This is
something she waited so long for.To hear
someday,that she has a sister.Why does it feel
so wrong? Why the tears?
“Sonia,please forgive me.These are your
parents.Angela is your sister.I regret everything
i have done”Adaora pleaded in tears coming to
Sonia who was taking her steps backwards,to
avoid her touch.
This revelation left her with mixed feelings.So
she had been sleeping with her sister’s
She remembered all the years she spent with
Adaora in ignorance and how the woman had
played down all her efforts.She had been right
all these years,thinking that Adaora might not
be her biological mother due to the way she
was treated by her.
“You have the right to be angry with me.Please
Sonia,find it in your heart to forgive me”Adaora
“Don’t touch me”Sonia fought as Adaora came
“Is there something we need to know?”Mr.uwa
asked,glancing at Angela,Sonia and David who
For the first time,Sonia stared deeply at her said
parents.The looks on their faces showed they
were ready to accept her as their daughter.That
must have been the reason why they saved her
from facing the law for the crime she
But the look on Angela’s face was different.
Sonia shook her head,muttering some words to
herself.She must end it all.She cannot live with
the shame.Her fate had always played against
her.It seemed life truly swore never to be fair to
“No no. I am going to kill myself”Sonia said
loudly,running out of the house.Everyone took
after her immediately but she was determined
to end it all.To rest from all the troubles she has
She saw the cars speeding to and fro at the
main road and started running towards that
“Don’t do it Sonia”
“I forgive you Sonia.You are my sister please
Sonia paid deaf ears to them.Her mind was
With a proper calculation,she ran into the main
road and stood still with her eyes closed.The
screeching sound of brakes from a black toyota
was heard after knocking Sonia,sending her to
