‘no, i’m not’ Alice muttered weakly
suddenly feeling sleepy.
Angela became afraid. She didnt know
what to do.
‘then what exactly is wrong with you?
Talk to me Alice’ she panted nervously.
Alice felt her eyes closing without her
permission. The more she tried to open
it, the more it closes on its own.
‘oh my God. Blindness or death?’ she
said weakly then passed out.
‘Alice! Alice!!! Alice!! Somebody help me,
Alice please wake up!’ Angela screamed
Kofo rushed out immediately.
‘Jesus!’ she screamed and ran to her.
‘my dear! My dear, please wake up
please, my dear, please dont die, please’
Kofo said as tears flowed from her eyes.
Then with fury in her eyes, she grabbed
‘what have you done to my daughter?
What have you done to her?!’ Kofo
Angela shook. Was she going to take
the blame for something she knew
nothing about? Certainly not!
‘i have done nothing to Alice ma. Believe
me, we were just thinking of how to
open this suitcase when all of a sudden,
she complained of being weak, believe
me ma, i’m innocent’ Angela said
‘what suitcase?’ Kofo asked temporarily
forgetting about Alice.
Scared, Angela pointed to the suitcase
that Alice was still holding tight
Kofo looked at it for a while.
‘where did she get it from?’ Kofo asked.
‘your…your room’ Angela stammered.
‘my room? You liar!’ Kofo said slapping
Angela hard on the face. ‘i’ve been in my
room ever since i returned from the
funeral and no one entered my room
not even my hisband’s ghost not to talk
of collecting something and meanwhile,
there’s nothing like this in my room.
Speak the truth befor i hand you over to
the police and charge you for murder!!!’
Kofo said in anger.
‘ma, i swear with my life and that of my
poor mother’s, i have no hand in all of
these, Alice met me in my room and we
requested we clean up oga’s personal
room since he was dead. We went there
and it was locked then she said she was
going to ask you, then she went to your
room and came out with the suitcase
but it was passcoded. As we were
trying to figure it out, she complained of
being weak and passed out, i swear ma,
i’m innocent!’ Angela cried peeing on
‘what are you even saying!!!!’ Kofo said
pushing her with great force.
‘i swear i will kill you if anything
happend to my daughter!’ Kofo said
rushing in to get her car keys.
Alice saw herself swimming in the sky,
she was in the world she had never
been to. She felt she had wings now.
She saw herself flying in the sky, being
free like a bird with no worries at all.
Then she saw the ghost of her late
‘father!!’ she screamed and flew
towards him in an attempt to hug him
but he stopped her.
‘dont!!’ he said.
‘dad’ she called surprised.
‘Alice, the passcode you need is 3312.
Everything you need to know is in that
suitcase. Everything that i have lived for
and every single attrocity that i have
committed all my life’ he said.
