STORY: BEAUTIFUL BELINA (Episode 18)

I brought out my diary & started writing
some things. My diary is always in my bag cos I use it very frequently. Most of my things
were still in my house so I didn’t bring anything much.
Around 10 o’clock, I headed towards Deji’s room & I was glad to start work mmediately.

I saw d patient on d
bed sleeping with his parents by his side. I greeted &introduced myself as his
psychologist & they had been extremely happy. Just then,d patient turned in his sleep &
opened his eyes. He looked exceedingly attractive in his sleep& I could not but pity his
present state internally but that was not what I ought to do as a
professional so I smiled lovingly at him. I gave him a few minutes
to get familiar with his
environment & just as I was about to open my mouth, his mother spoke.

“it is good u are awake dear,ur psychologist is here” he smiled at me like he had known me all his life.
“I went to him still smiling &said, “Hello Mr. Deji, I am Miss
Belina Badmus & ur new
psychologist, don’t worry, in a few days, we would have fixed
this little thing up there”, I said casually & he laughed slightly.

He had a positive manner; I noted delightedly & knew that
it would help me tremendously

The look on richard’s face was unreadable, maybe surprise,anger,uncertainty, or even all of them; his expressions were
always unreadable just as he was
unpredictable. He stared at d woman b4 him & knew without a doubt that she is his
biological mother. He was barely above 5 d last time he saw
her but he still remembered how
she made no move to bid him goodbye. She never really loved
him; she always hit him even though that sort of treatment was not allowed there. She loved
her daughters a lot & his father had told him of how she fought for their custody in d
court.

People say that u can’t remember what happened to u as a child but he remembered everything cos no matter how small u are, bad things have a way of printing its
footprints on ur mind that u find it hard to forget
She had aged but she still had d fascinating beauty that seemed
to draw everyone to her;something that pissed him
‘what are u doing here’ he askd

“Son, I…” she was saying.

“Cut it out ma,u are not my mum ok? That is my mum’s photo over there”, he said
pointing to a picture of his step mother on d wall. She looked
distraught at that & she started sobbing.
“pls, 4give me my son, I should not have treated u badly then, I am sorry”, she said as she
advanced towards him.

He stopped her b4 she got to him & said straight to her face,
“u have never been my mother & u can never, EVER, be my mother”. He stormed out of d
house & 4d 1st time ever,he did not stop even when his dad called him back.

Inspector Sule marched into d house of d deceased with a
renewed vigor. He had been like a mad man trying to find d
murderer who had d guts to come against d Deputy Governor’s son & hadn’t gotten
anywhere even though they had made useless arrests knowing
fully well that d people in d cell knows next to nothing about d case. He had appointed three
police men to stay permanently at Tunji’s apartment monitoring
d workers & ensuring that they did not go out at all.
When he got into d sitting room he gathered all d workers in d sittingroom &
asked them collectively,
“What do u people know about ur late
boss’ traveling plans?”
One of them who looked like d cook looked up & said,
“oga
olopa, e don tey since my oga don dey talk say him go travel go
oyinbo land with hin wife?”
“Wife? What wife?” d inspector asked, already liking d news.

“Aah, oga bin wan marry one girl, but e be like say d girl no dey
gree for am because na d papa just dey come hia everytime, I never take my eye see d girl
b4”. The cook completed.
Inspector Sule nodded
thoughtfully & said,
“so he was traveling out with his fiancee
that Saturday right? Maybe d girl killed him”.

The driver with more fluent English then said, “Yes sir, I wanted to drive him to d airport but he said I shouldn’t
worry, so he drove himself & just about 2hrs later, he came back very angry”.
“Yes, he angry well well o”, the
cook interjected, others just kept
quiet.

“He just dey shout on top of everybody head & he bin break plenty cup o. I even hear
am as him just dey shout for phone say make person bring
money come give am for night”.
“What? Who was he talking to?”
d inspector asked.
“I no no ooo” she replied.
One of d most silent of d other two staffs felt
uncomfortable & d eyes of d inspector tormented him until he opened his mouth &
said,
“sir, I am not an amebo but I also heard his phone conversation & didn’t hear any
name mentioned but after d call, he started saying some
things out loud & from what he said, I feel d person he was
talking to was Belina’s father”.
Elated, d inspector was visibly relieved & he asked d driver
if he had knows the address & he replied in affirmative saying
he had driven his boss there times without number. He took d address & walked out
smiling victoriously.

TO BE CONTINUED TOMORROW MORNING.
