I was still clinging to the seat when the car was attempted to be pulled up but as the car shook it felt as if it was going to throw me off so I screamed out that I was going to fall, I looked up and saw David with a rope tied to his waist and his brother beside him, I knew the who was who, David lowered himself and stretched out his hand for me to hold but I could not because I used both my hands to hold on to the seat and I feared that i may loose my hold and fall.
David: Tumi hold my hand
Me: I can’t David, l will fall.
David: ok hang on, I will come to you (he looked up to his brother) Daniel let the rope down (he said as he lowered down to my side and held me and I let go of the seat after I was assured that David was holding me and I clunged tightly to my fiancee body, the rope was pulled up pulling us up, when we finally got up, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing but there was a crowd of people out there, there were police cans there, I saw derinde’s men all injured being dragged to the police van, I also saw deride been led to another van with her hands in cuffs, I could tell that she was shot on her leg as she was limping, David came to me and I hugged him tightly and wept on his shoulders, I was so close to death, was this how people died, oh I could not help but thank God that I was alive. David spoke to me but I was still in shock that I could not hear him or reply him, an ambulance arrived from the state emergency service and two nurses came down with a stretcher and came to us, I was lifted and placed on the stretcher and taken to the ambulance, David followed us in. I was given first aid in the ambulance and an injection was given on me that made me feel sleepy and I closed my eyes to rest and woke up in an hospital bed with my mother beside me, I felt less pain now in fact I felt relieved and well)
David’s mum(now my mother): I am happy that you are awake my child (she said as she placed her palm on my forehead and smiled to me, it was then that I noticed that I had a bandage wrapped on my head)
Me: mum I am glad to be alive, what about David
My mother: he is on his way here
Me: what about derinde and her men
My mother: they are in jail so you shouldn’t worry anymore because they can no longer hurt you.
Me: am glad mum because I am alive (I then remembered my wedding as it was supposed to be in two days time but I did not want to get married with bandages all over my body) but mum what about the wedding
My mother: don’t worry child everything is going to be okay (she said as she smiled to me and I reciprocated her smile, I and David postponed the wedding till December to give me enough time to recover fully and for other issues to be settled, when David’s parents saw derinde they were shocked and so was derinde, they told us all that derinde was their runaway daughter and derinde was so ashamed of herself considering that she had almost killed me all because she thought that she was in love with David not knowing that they where half siblings anyway the dead was done and she had to pay according to the law, the court sentenced her to 18years in jail. I mentioned seeing Daniel at my rescue, well David told me that Daniel was pardoned and released because of his good behaviors by the government, he told me that Daniel had apologized to all for all he did and they had forgiven him and he was back to the family, Daniel apologized to me for all the times that he had feigned his brother to get to me and I forgiven him, I and David got married in late December and our wedding was wonderful and a dream come true for me, despite all that had happened to me in the past I never thought that I will one day get married, and our marriage night felt like my first night as David made me feel like I was a virgin all over again because I was the first woman that he will have s-x with, I never thought in my life that I will marry such a man like David, find my family despite everything and guess what after some months I gave birth to my first children, yes I gave birth to twins, identical twin boys)
A lot had happened in my life most of which were caused by lies, I was buried under lies which almost destroyed me but once the truth was out, my life became better. So it doesn’t matter how much of lies you may be holding in your mind just say the truth to prevent yourself or your children from getting buried under the rocks of lies.
