    I and Ugochukwu went out of the hospital, I drove to the beach were Veronica and I had been to before she left for the State quietly.

    I parked there and stepped out of the car passing the crowd having party at the beach then settled before the waters.

    I sat down and stared up at the crimson moon bathing it silvering light on the water, it was so beautiful that I wished my life could be that way without too many heartbreaking dramas.

    Ugochukwu: I think say you wan jump enter water commit suicide.

    Me: I just wan reason.

    Ugochukwu: abeg reason quick, cold dey here. Make I go buy drink, you go drink?

    I shook my head and he turned whistling as he kicked a container away making a childish sound.

    I sat down and reminisced about the time I spent with Veronica, it really broke my heart to know that she was battling for her life.

    I swear I will kill that fool that did this to her.

    Ugochukwu: you never still think finish? come make we dey go, my wife dey disturb me with calls.

    I got up and we left the beach it was late already and we had to meet three checkpoints on our way to his house and we paid to get through.

    Shantel was at the balcony when we got out of the car, we went inside the house to see her descending from the staircase with her nightie.

    Ugochukwu: baby, you never sleep?

    Shantel: how I go sleep without you? good evening sir.

    Me: evening oh! our expensive wife.

    Ugochukwu: you still dey call person wey been pay you just thirty thousand naira sir, wetin you wan call your current boss?

    Shantel: is it your sir? I will keep on calling him.

    Me: I wan sleep.

    Ugochukwu led me to my room, he left afterwards and I jumped on the bed without bathing then slept off.

    I woke up the next morning with my clothes on, I went to the bathroom took my bath and came out of the room.

    I met Ugochukwu in the sitting-room relaxing while watching television.

    Ugochukwu: I think say you no go wake.

    Me: na so you dey greet elders for ona village?

    Ugochukwu: who dash monkey elder for banana plantation? come eat jare!

    We had our breakfast and left for the hospital, we had to meet the doctor in his office to talk about Veronica’s condition.

    Me: Doc, how far?

    Doctor: she still dey coma but…

    Me: no but me, I fit see her?

    Doctor: yes.

    Ugochukwu: gentlemen, shall we?

    We all stood up while he led the way to where Veronica is, both of them stood at the door while I was told to go in.

    I opened the door and stepped in watching her lying on the bed with different kind of life support machine broke my heart.

    I didn’t even know what to do as I stared at her, she look so vulnerable in the state she is now. The fearless and stubborn lady in her was all gone, I sat by her side and watched her pale face expecting her mouth to open by magic.

    Me: why you nodey talk again? why you no wan wake? is not easy watching you sleep. You know say I don buy our ring, when you go wake up so that I go propose to you? no bother unromantic girlfriend, will you marry me? answer me na.

    I got up from the seat and moved away from the bed facing the door, I haven’t moved three steps when I turned back and saw her fingers moving.

    Me: doctor! she don wake!! nurse!! *I scream happily*

    Ugochukwu was first to enter followed by a nurse, who asked us to leave so that they can attend to Veronica.

    I stood at the hallway pacing around with so much energy and gladness, peeping inside the room but couldn’t get any clear view.

    Ugochukwu: calm down now.

    Me: the joy no gree calm down.

    Some minutes later the doctor came out with smile on his face.

    Doc: your wife has God, she so strong to come out from coma in short time. She is resting now, few days from now she will be fine.

    Me: thank you, thank you.

    Doc: thank God

    The doctor left I and Ugochukwu.

    Ugochukwu: what of Alicia?

    Me: come make we go kidnap her.

    I was in a good spirit that morning, so I just marched out of the hospital senseless into the car.

    He used his palm to touch my head.

    Me: guy, why?

    Ugochukwu: you well so? You go just enter Governor house carry her commot, pass those police checkpoint till you drop her for that house.

    Me: oh! I don forget say kidnapping na illegal.

    Ugochukwu: I see am like that.
