As Maria gulped the water down her
throat, she thought about the dream
she just had a while ago. She was
scared. Because the dream looked so
real she thought she was gonna die.
Then she thought; this must be a bad
sign. It only means Alice is a bad omen.
It only means that if she does not accept
Alice, she might die and she was sure
this dream was wired from her(Alice)
witchcraft coven to scare her into
accepting her. But they were wrong and
they’ve failed, because its now she will
up her game. If she was lenient and
trying to pity Alice, she wouldnt
Tony barged in with red eyes and for a
moment, she thought her dream was
finally coming to pass.
‘i want to see you in my room right
now!’ he said fiercely and stormed out
of the kitchen and to his room.
Maria was scared. Should she go to his
room or not? What might happen? Will
he kill her or attempt to kill her like in
After contemplating for some seconds,
she decided to go to his room. She
wouldnt run away from the devil. She
must face him head on.
She went to his room, the door was
ajar. When she peeped in, she saw her
dad sitting on the bed staring into
space looking lost.
‘come inside’ he said. His voice wasnt

shrugged lightly and entered the room,
not closing the door, for precaution of
They stared at each other in silence for
some seconds before she finally broke
‘dad, you called me’
‘yes i did. Are you going to keep
standing or are you scared of sitting
close to me now?’
‘no…i….i just want to stand’
‘good,’ he stood up from the bed ‘then
lets stand together’ he took a step
forward and she took a step backward,
he took another step forward and she
mover backword ; forward, backward,
forward, backward till she was outside
the room. Then Tony stopped.
‘come in. I want to talk to you,’ he went
back and sat on the bed.
Maria relunctantly went in, but not too
close to him.
‘Maria, i want to ask you a question and
i need a very sincere answer from you.
A very sincere one. You understand?’
Maria sighed, this wasnt the way the
dream went, so the evil dream wired
from Alice’s coven into her sleep was
ineffective. Hmm, thank God.
‘yes’ she replied quietly.
‘good. Maria, do you love me as your
father at all?’
He waved his hands at her ‘i want a
simple answer. Yes or no’
‘of course i love you daddy. Why on
earth wont i love you when you are my
‘so you just love me because i’m your
dad? Just because i’m your dad right?’
‘daddy, i dont understand where all
these questions are coming from’
‘you dont need to understand Maria!’ he
was furious now ‘what on earth have i
done to displease you? I have loved you
right from birth, given you all you’ve
ever wanted, been a father and a
mother to you, dont everything to make
you happy. But you….you dont want me
‘daddy, thats not true! I love you and i
want you to be happy. Your happiness
means the world to me’
‘shut up!!!’ Tony snapped ‘you bloody
liar, you dont love me at all. You dont
want me happy!’
‘thats not true……’
‘shut up i say! If you want me happy
then you will let Alice and i be. Because i
love her and she makes me happy’
‘so this is all about Alice right? I should
have known sef! So just because i dont
want you to marry Alice, you’ve
concluded i dont want you happy right?’
‘Maria, are you talking to me like that?’
‘Alice is a witch dad!! Leave her alone!’
