    “Jessica…” she gasped.

    The words Jessica had heard continued to echo as she stared ahead, seeing nothing. It was until tears had slipped out of her eyes that she again saw the bad news bringer and Miss Bolu. She wiped the tears instantly and marched forward, standing in front of the man before Miss Bolu could even think of what to do or say.

    “Where is my Mummy?” she demanded. The man looked totally at a loss. “Where is my dad and my brother? Their snacks are inside. Where are they?” she yelled.

    The man bent down to her level, the way her dad usually did, holding her hands. As Miss Bolu placed her hand on her shoulder, she lost it. She snatched her hands from the man and grabbed his shirt with her small fists. She was shivering. “Where is my mummy?” she yelled, shaking the man with all her strength. “I want to see her. I want to see my daddy.” She gasped. “Where is Mark? Where is my brother? I still have not beat him at the computer game, where is he.” She wiped her tears furiously because it was hindering her from seeing the man clearly. Miss Bolu tried all she could to detach her from the man who just stayed with sorrow written all over him, without touching the child but she did not succeed. When Jessica discovered that shaking the man was not working, she started pounding her fists on his chest until he held her firmly with his strong hands.

    “Ok, let me take you to them.” He said, smiling faintly but tightly. “Go and put on your shoes.” He said gently.

    “No. I can go like this. Lets go” she wiped her eyes again.

    Miss Bolu could not even get a grip on herself, not to mention, console the child. Mr and Mrs Adams had been like parents to her. The man insisted until Miss Bolu went in to get Jessica’s shoes, and locked the door.

    When they got to the car that the man brought, Jessica’s hand was shivering so terribly that she could not hold the handle of the car, not to talk of opening it. Tony opened the door for the ladies and went being the wheel. He could not even think of any word of consolation to use. He hadn’t exactly told them the worst part of the news but he knew that they had already drawn up their own conclusions. He would have been able to handle it if the little girl hadn’t been involved but seeing the girl tearing apart had almost driven him crazy.

    When they got to the hospital, he hesitated but when Jessica opened her door, he hurriedly went out. Before he left the hospital minutes ago, the little boy had been alive, though in grave danger. He hoped and prayed that the boy was still alive but immediately they got into the hospital he knew that the prayer hadn’t been answered. There, Jessica’s life became altered. Without being told anything by anyone, due to her age, she was still able to fathom what the news was. A trailer had collided with the car; she heard someone say. Suddenly, the smell of blood and drugs hit her like a slap. She imagined that the blood of her parents and her brother was what she was inhaling. She grabbed her expanding head and screamed…..

    **Present**

    She clutched her purse tight as the scene of over 18 years replayed over and over again. She had cried and cried secretly but never in the presence of others. She quickly wiped her brimming eyes and blinked. The driver was watching her now and she realized that they had stopped moving.

    “Are you alright ma’am?” he asked softly with worry.

    She smiled. “I am fine. Thanks.” She stepped out of the car and walked towards the shop, hoping that her friend would be able to lift her spirit. It was like life always threw her battled.

    “Who am I seeing?” Lizzy yelled immediately she saw Jessie.

    “Jessie baby” she hailed. “The sexiest SU bride in town”

    Jessica frowned at the endearment but internally, she was glad. If there was someone who could make her feel extremely happy with words, it was Lizzy. “Na who be SU”

    “Who else my dear” Lizzy hugged her fiercely. “Hold it.

    What are you doing here? You should be on honeymoon. Don’t tell me you guys got fed up of each other’s company this fast. You both seemed so much in love that you got married barely two months after meeting.” They sat down on the chair. No one was in the shop except clothes.

    “He had to quickly fix some things at the office so I decided to visit you”

    “Wait” Lizzy raised her hand in surprise. “You are trying to say that your honeymoon was put on halt because of work?

    That Andy is really something”

    “No, he had something very important to sort out at work today and I advised him to go. Besides, we still have the rest of our lives together” she lied.

    Lizzy tried to think about it then shrugged it off, as her face brought on a ladylike smile. “Tell me babe, give me the gist. How was your honeymoon, most importantly, the wedding night?”

    Jessica doubled up and almost threw up at the question. She looked pale. Jessica realized that it had been a very terrible idea to come to Lizzy. Lizzy was always direct and it was increasingly difficult to lie to her.

    “OH… I had forgotten that my SU friend can’t divulge that information. In fact, pardon me, it was inappropriate. It was not like I actually wanted you to tell me, just wanted to see your reaction, and I got it” Lizzy said, misinterpreting Jessica’s reactions.

    That was the lifesaver that Jessica needed. “I won’t tell you. But you can follow me to the beach. I guess Andy won’t be back until it is almost dark. You have been to the beach, you can teach me how to play in it and possibly swim”

    Lizzy’s eyes widened and she stood up instantly. “You don’t have to ask me twice”

    “What about the shop?” Jessica asked, laughing.

    “It can do without me today” she closed the shop and they both went into her apartment where she fished out some beach-fitting clothes……..
