Papa was discharged 2weeks later leaving
him with bandages on both his ankles and
knees having severed his limbs in the
accident with little patches here and there
on his face and hands.
The doctor have given us a ton of
medicines for papa’s daily use and will be
coming from time to time to check on his
Getting home i helped papa into a chair.
papa look more feeble now, his skin looked
somewhat darker and his face seemed like
it was getting older.
Their is nothing i hate more than seeing my
papa this way. Jessy on her own part
nearly died the day of the accident. * * *
“Sky what did you say happened to papa”
she shrieked immediately i dropped the
Her eyes glowed with tearful sparkle, Her
hands dropped stiff betraying the
frightening horror that surged within.
Chioma’s mouth fell agape her gazes
focusing towards me and Jessy at interval.
“What did you say happened”? Amanda
questioned like she didn’t hear me the first
time, her face wearing a look of
“The number that just called now said papa
was involved in a motor accident” the
words was saying me more than i was
saying it. cold tears already formed at the
back of my head.
Jessy’s shrieking scream startled everyone
in the room as she came crashing down
with a loud thud breaking into a
resounding loud cry with the words
“my papa is dead” Flying out of her mouth.
Which sent a piercing scare into me.
We rushed down to the scene of the
accident met only with the view of what
could be called Papa’s car. The black
chases of black toyota avalon were reduced
to a crumbled piece of metal.
The white hilux it crashed into was also in
a bad shape. Wonder how anyone could
possibly survive that.
Amanda was the first to break down in
tears as we were shown a visual of papa
through a transparent glass window
demarcating the emergency casualty unit.
All we could make out was a team of
doctors surrounded by a stream nurses as
they worked and tried to revive two
unconscious bodies covered in blood and
Nurses running aimlessly around in their
annoying habit, some would come out of
the unit and zoom past us paying deaf ears
to our desperate questions we riddled her
with, only to zoom back again with nothing
tangible in hand. *keep wondering what she
went to bring*
Identifying papa was almost impossible
from the two unconscious figures being
worked on, their faces being covered in
blood and bruises.
Jessy already rushed into the changing
room, jumped into a light green theater
coat and other kits gaining access into the
casualty room with her Identity card.
Watched as Jessy joined the doctors on
their work, turning back every now and
then to cast a gloomy look at me through
If ever their was a time i was proudest of
Jessy being a doctor, it was today.
And am sure papa will be too, this was the
kind of situation you’d be thankful you have
a doctor in the family.

“Am still wondering how a brake my
mechanic fixed, failed one week after” Papa
addressed me raising an eye brow as i
guided him to a cushion in the sitting room
on getting home after his discharge.
“Papa these things happen, besides your
driver is on leave” I countered, “just be
thankful you survived”.
“Am sure what am saying Nnam, that brake
was in perfect shape, something must have
tampered with it” Papa aired out wincing
while he raised himself a bit to seat up.
“Eheee Nnam, this accident made me think
about many things, one of them being that
i have not seen your child so am not
supposed to die now” Papa blurted out
with a funny but yet serious face.
“Haaa papa, you should concentrate on
getting better, my marriage is not relevant
now” I chuckled out trying to discard the
topic and my surprise.
“Nnam i know what am saying, you are my
only son and i need to see your grand
children soon” it wasn’t so surprising he
insisted being a very strong willed man as i
Amanda walked pass the sitting room
clutching papa’s hospital provisions in a
black polythene, she had been just right on
the door when papa raised the topic of my
Throwing a slight wink at me with a smile
that pushed her lips to the right side of her
mouth, she swayed pass us disappearing
“Ok papa i will look into it” I said partly to
close the topic but part of me was serious
But deep within me, Papa’s suspicion that
someone might have tampered the brakes
