IN The DARK (A Story Of Love, Betrayal And Survival)  - Season 1 - Episode 45
Read The Story
A week after the wedding the house was
free from guest and close family friends.

Throughout that week i remained indoor
with my phone. I was so tired and
exhausted from all the journey i made
before the wedding and all the things i did
during the wedding. Khole and Josh called
immediately they got to their destination
and it was so sweet to hear her voice again,
tho it was over the phone. During my period
of been indoor, Jordan would call, message
and sometimes he would bring me food or
snacks for lunch. He was no more a visitor in
my house. Mi dad also welcomed him
whenever he was around, i gussed mi mom
told him about Jordan already. I had a week
rest after the wedding and i had a week left
before work. I decided to have fun with
Jordan during the period of the remaining
one week. We went shopping together on a
Wednesday afternoon when we came
across Nelly. Truth be told after the wedding,
i did not ask after her. She blamed me for
not having time for her and i apologised. I
promised to spend the week Sunday with
her and she became happy, a decision
Jordan frown at. He wanted us to be
together always after the long break.
¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤ It was Sunday,
time checked 11:00AM, i dressed up in a
simple outfit and had alittle makeup on. I
took permission from my foster parent and
left for Nelly’s house in my car. Nelly was
happy to see me, so was her parent. They
told me how lonely she was and pleaded
with me to come more often. Nelly’s mom
personally told me to plead with Nelly to

continue taking her drug, according to her,
nelly was giving up on life. I promised to do
my best in keeping intouch and i left with
Nelly to her room.I had fun with Nelly, she
offered lots of video games, movies, gist and
other interesting things. Time checked
2:00pm, we were both hungry,since we
were yet to have lunch. Instead of placing an
order or buying food outside, we decided to
make Jollof Rice ourselves, in order to have
quality time together. Nelly informed her
mom of our decision and after much
mockery from her, she provided all the
ingredient we would be need. Nelly was
slicing the beaf while i was frying the
pepper for the rice. The kitchen atmosphere
got thick due to the pepper on fire, i myself
had to cover my noise after sneezing for
sometimes. I was still talking to nelly when
she sneezed at first. I told her to take care
and she replied with a nod.She sneezed
again,and then she started to cough.At first i
went to get her water, thinking all she
needed was water.I returned with the water
and Nelly was on the floor already, coughing
consecutively, that was when i remembered
her health status. Before i could put off the
gaz and literally drag her out of the kitchen
to get fresh air, she was struggling for
breathe. I became too scared and lost on
what to do.I rushed to call her parent and
her mom practically ran down stairs. She
told me to hurry to her room and get her
inhaler.I rushed to the room and i ran back
without the inhaler, i had no idea of where
it was. According to her dad she had alot of
it,her dad rushed to search for her inhaler
as well while her mom held her to herself on
the floor.Nelly’s dad came back without the
inhaler as well,he quickly bent beside Nelly
and tried to make her tell him where the
inhaler was.Nelly kept on pointing at her
room,her eyes were blood red and her chest
was going up and down as she made a
wired sound, trying to struggle for breathe.
I could not take to see her in her present
condition anymore.I stood up and ran to her
room upstair, determined to get the inhaler
and put an end to her present predicament.I
flung her wardrobe open, i scattered all the
books on her reading shelf, i searched her
shoe closet and scattered all the bags.Finally
i found a pack of inhaler underneath her
bed. I took one from the pack and ran
downstairs.Nelly’s mom was crying
already,and tho she was in a bad situation
then,i could see tears run down nelly’s
cheek as well. I hurriedly gave the inhaler to
Mr. Stanley and he placed it in her mouth
immediately. Nelly opened her mouth for the
inhaler and shut her eyes permanently, she
took a deep breathe and her hand fell from
the inhaler in her mouth. The inhaler fell as
well and she stopped to breathe for a while
as she became unconscious. Just like a
movie, i watched as her mom carried her to
herself in tears as she screamed her name.
Her dad shouted the names of the maids
and driver and they all assemble to help
carry Nelly to the hospital. I stood rooted to
a point, lost on what to do and thinking of
what might happen to her. ‘If she dies i will
never forgive myself’ I said to myself, i
should have cared more about her health, i
should’nt have agreed to us cooking when
she brought the suggestion, I should’nt
have allowed her to stop using her drug,but
i never knew she even stopped cos i cared
less about her! I blamed it all on myself! I
was never there for her!
