Danica: No! I didn’t let any of them know. Hayden Please she clasped her hands together, Please forgive me I beg you, It was the de….. She received another slap, followed by punches. Mason tried his best to stop him from beating his wife but he could not. For Hayden was mad with fury. He continued beating and punching her till his friend got hold of him and pushed him aside while she laid on the floor wailing and asking for forgiveness
Mason: Do you want to kill her, Haba! That is so bad of you. How can you hit a woman like that?

Hayden: oh so you want me to still beat you abi? Mason, I want this woman out of my house. I picked you from the gutters and brushed you up, I made you who you are yet you betrayed the trust and love I had for you. Our marriage is over from this moment. Mason he screamed, ‘I do not want this woman here’.
Mason: quickly told Danica to leave but she refused and he carried her while she struggled with him and took her outside, locking the gate behind.
Danica stayed crying and knocking on the gate but with the order of Hayden the landlord who instructed the tenant not to allow her into the compound and they obeyed till she saw that nobody is ready to come to her aid, she went to the next compound and begged for some cash which she was given, there she boarded a car to her village.
Danica explained all that transpired between Hayden and herself. Her parents were disappointed in her and was wondering how they could go to Hayden with such a big shame, instead they told her to go back to her husband’s house and apologize to them for they couldn’t face him with such kind of shame. She begged that she be allowed to stay a couple of weeks to heal before going back to ask for forgiveness and by then, his mind would have soften and they agreed.
Three weeks later, Danica went to her house and knocked at the gate asking to see her husband of which she was told he no longer lives there with his kids. She tried all she could, went to Mason’s house to get information of the whereabouts of her husband and kids and was told that he has relocated to the U.S with the kids.
Devastated, stranded she looked up to the sky and wished for Death.
