Mama Why season 2 episode 9 by Ngozi Lovelyn
As Ndubuisi was starting his car, he found his heart feeling deeply troubled and concerned, hoping that nothing bad should happen to Ogechi.
Ogechi, who didn’t know how dangerous a night could be in the city decided to sleep in one uncompleted building that wasn’t far from the street where Ndubuisi’s house was situated.
She headed straight to the place after she left Ndubuisi’s house with intention of sleeping over there, to return to the village the next morning.
She laid on the floor after spreading her wrapper, crying over her lost love.
The way Ndubuisi behaved towards her, pierced her heart.
“No hope for me. He already forgotten about me. Lord, since you gave him the heart to forget about me, can you also bestow me with the same heart, so I can forget him aswell? This pain is just too unbearable” She sobbed in deep agony, that she didn’t know when the cool breeze of sleep blew her away
Ndubuisi was still driving around the street, searching the obvious places he thought Ogechi could be.
“Since she doesn’t know the city so well, she won’t go far, she might still be around, somewhere” he kept flashing his eyes everywhere
While still searching for her, his mind clicked on her eyes again, when she was looking at him.
“God, her eyes. There is always something about her eyes that kept drawing her to me. Is she intentionally making her eyes like that or something? Because those eyes, they are so kind and warm. Oh God, I don’t even know why I’m even feeling this way for Ogechi. That girl is my past and I shouldn’t be feeding my head with all these nonsense” Ndubuisi said, trying to shake off any feeling that was coming in favour of Ogechi.
Ogechi’s mother was no longer herself. She kept calling her daughter’s mobile line, but not reachable and Ndubuisi was not answering her either.
Cherry who was having herself worried out called Ndubuisi, asking him what was going on and where he was.
He told her that, he will return to her soon. That he went to get someone.
“Who is that person that made you leave the house at this hour and without eating your food?” Cherry asked in sheer angry tone
“Aqre you shouting at me?” Ndubuisi asked
“No, I am sorry…..just that”
“I said I will be back, relax” Ndubuisi cut in, disconnecting the call.
Ogechi was still sleeping, but not so comfortably. Her sleep was interrupted when she heard a sound coming towards her direction.
Some gangs had finished robbing the places they went to rob and then decided to return to that uncompleted building to check what they got for the night.
Ogechi heard them approached and didn’t know what to do.
She then made up her mind to beg them to allow her sleep for the night, to leave first thing the next morning.
But the idea was changed when she heard one of the gangs talking about not using his gun on someone
“That guy should thank his stars, If not that you stopped me, I would have ended his chapter right that minute”
“Calm down, you shouldn’t be wasting your bullet like that. Always save it for more important situations” the second guy advised
And Ogechi’s heart flipped. She couldn’t even wait to think for a better idea on how to run away to avoid been spotted or making a sound. She took to her heels immediately as her heart panicked. She collided with an iron pipe that was stood close to the window side.
The thing made a sound that set the robbers ready to her direction.
They set their guns and started running to the direction the sound was coming from.
Ogechi who was breathing fast, continued running without even looking back. The robbers came out, flashed their torch light and saw a girl running out and they ran after her.
Ndubuisi was already getting tired of searching for Ogechi, but a part of him kept pushing him.
His heart was at war for Ogechi. One part was feeling deeply concerned for her, while one part was reminding him that, he already gotten another woman engaged and set to marry her, that he should forget everything about Ogechi.
While he was still battling on which part to listen to, Ogechi ran into his car and got hit.
Ndubuisi screamed that he hit someone, not knowing that, it was Ogechi.
