# Jeremy ‘s POV
I got to the hospital, and getting into the room my dad is, I saw my mom, okay the witch! holding my dad’s hand.
And she was saying things to my dad and he was just smiling along.
I stood at the door and just stared at them.
It was just annoying…
After seven months…. She came home, she wouldn’t have if dad didn’t get into an
And here she is, pretending she loves dad.. And dad is so blind to see that she don’t feel one bit of love for him..
My birthday was four months ago and she never came.
She just sent stupid gifts and transfered money to my account like its all that matters to me.
Now here she is, talking shits and dad will always believe.
They haven’t noticed im here.
She bent and kissed him.
I closed my eyes and clenched my fist, then I walked to them.
She saw me and did her fake wide smile.
“Ohh son, you here, I missed you.” She said.
I hissed and looked at my dad.
He was smiling..
“Dad, you fine? Sorry I had to take my friend home and then, go take a shower.” I said.
“It’s fine son. You have been the best son every father would so much love to have.” He said.
I smiled, “It’s just you that I got dad. And I would do anything just to make you stay for me.” I said.
He glanced at my mom and then back at me.
“Your mom… Jeremy. She got something to say out to you.” He said.
“Dad, do I have a mom? For all I care, you the only person I got as my parent.” I said.
“Jeremy..” The witch called and tried to touch me but I flung her hand away.
“Jeremyy… Im sorry.” She said.
I scoffed, “Tell yourself that.” I said.
“You need to listen to your mom son. I know she’ve been too far away but she’s back to stay.” Dad said.
“Dad, she’s never gonna get my forgiveness cos she don’t deserve it. She never cared about me. I hate her.” I spat, turned and walked away. “Jeremy…Come back..” I heard my dad say.
“Please son.. Forgive me. I love you very much.” That was the witch voice.
I walked away and over to the hospital lounge and sat down.
I fought so hard to stop the tear but it fell.
<b> Next Day
# Alexandra ‘s POV
I woke up the next day to find text messages from Jeremy.
Awwwn, Im so sorry for sleeping off Jeremy!
The messages were three.
I quickly opened them and went through them.
<b>1st Message: Andra, My mom claims that she’s back to stay. She wants me to forgive her but I don’t fu.cking wanna do that.
2nd Message: I know you’re asleep babe. I just wish you’re here with me. Im lonely and it’s making me think a hell lot.
3rd Message: I wanna see you tomorrow Andra.. Please. I love you so much.
I_inhaled and reread the messages again. The first message.
I decided to reply him that one.
<b>Jeremy, I don’t know what to say about this, but I just think you should forgive your mom.
If she’s gonna stay back and not leave again then im sure she’s gonna use this times to make up for her past mistakes and give you the attention and affection that you always had needed. Im sure that she loves you alot.
Please give her a chance.
I_sent it and then inhaled.
I wish he forgives her.
I got up and walked out to find Lili. She was at the laundry room.
“Goodmorning Lili.” I said and back hugged her.
I love her alot.
She turned and hugged me, then pulled away with a smile.
“How was your night Niece?” She asked.
“I guess, it was fine.” I said, with a wide smile.
She looked closely into my eyes.
“You seem so happy Alex.. With such a wide smile,.you look so really Angelic.”
“Arghhh.. Lili, you just wanna make me blush this early morning.” I said.
“You deserve more dear.” She said.
“Church today?” I asked.
“Yeah. In a hour, we should be heading to church. I just wanna wash this nighties.
We should do some shopping after church.. What do you think?” She asked.
“Sweeeeeet!!” I said with a happy smile. But then I recalled.
Jeremy said he wants to see me today.
Arghhhh!! What do I do!
“Lili..I can’t go to the shopping actually.” I said coldly.
She looked at me, “Why?”
Im gonna tell her.
“Jeremy..He said he wanna see me today.” I said.
She smiled, “Alex, are you gonna tell me the truth?” She said, staring into my eyes.
“What truth Lili?” I asked.
“That there is more to you guys friendship. I can feel it Alex.” She said. I wanna quickly deny that but then, I guess I couldn’t cos I became silent. Lili let out what seemed like an understanding smile and then hugged me.. Wow…
“It’s fine Alex. I understand. Just be careful and know your limits. I understand you both love yourselves right?” She asked.
“Yeah.. Im sorry Lili, for not telling you first. He confessed his love for me last night and asked me to be his girlfriend and… and.. cos I really feel same way for him, I didn’t decline. Im sorry.” I said.
“It’s fine dearrr.” She said and hugged me more.
I read Andra’s reply.
I was still at the hospital but at the lounge..
I actually slept there cos I don’t wanna go home neither did I wanna go to my dad and
I can’t believe she stayed with him all night and still is in there.
I reread Andra’s text message and then, I felt like giving the witch a chance.
And forgiving her as well…
But why didn’t she reply the other two messages that I sent.
Argghh! I just gotta see her today. I miss her.
And shit! I haven’t even announced her as my girlfriend to everyone.
I can’t wait to do that.
“Jeremy..” I heard my name.
I know the voice tho.
I turned to that direction and she stood, in her classy gown and high heels, looking at me.
She looked like she didn’t catch a glimpse of sleep all night and she spent all that
hours in that tight gown and heels, without even bothering to go home and change
to something much comfortable.
Is she actually changing?
“Jeremy..” She called again and walked to me.
I looked away.
“Can.. can I sit beside you?” She asked.
I ignored her.
She waited awhile and then sat down gently beside me.
When last did she sit beside me?
She always come home that night and leaves the next morning, only to come home again months later.
Soon, I felt her fingers move to my hand and rested on top the back of my palm.
I closed my eyes, cos I really hate what she just did.
I hate that she wanna hold me now that I don’t need it.
There were those times I needed this hold but she never was around and she never cared!
“Get your hand off mine.” I said.
“Please Jeremy.. Im still your mom and I really love you. Im sorry I was so busy and cared for just myself. Im sorry I never tried to give the attentions and affection that you wanted. Please son, forgive me. I promise to make up for those times. I wanna be so close to you and give you the best attention and love. I miss you and I miss your dad. I’ve come to realise that I’do never be complete without you both. Jeremy please give me a chance. Give your mom another chance.” She said. I glanced at her and she’s already in tears.
Seriously in tears.
Then she put her head on my shoulder and cried more with her hand still on top mine.
“Im sorry son, please.. Find a place in your heart to forgive me. I love you so very much.. I love you very much son.” She cried.
I glanced at her and looked away.
I sighed as tears gathered in my eyes.
I blinked my eyes and they rolled down my cheeks.
I don’t need her to see my tears so I kept my gaze away from her.
She kept weeping on my shoulder.
I blinked more tears out.
I don’t know why, but I took my phone and scrolled to Andra’s message and read it again.

# I_shut my eyes as more tears rolled out.
“Jeremy, Please say something.. I really need your forgiveness.” She cried.
I inhaled but I ended up sniffling, cos my tears were so much.
She took her head away from my shoulder and then put her fingers on my chin and turned my face to look at her..
She wanna see if im actually crying.
More tears rolled out of her eyes as she saw mine.
“Son..” She called me..
“Mo…m..” I said and before I could finish that word, I hugged her. “I don’t wanna forgive you. I just wanna give you a chance.” I said…
“Thank you so much son. I love you very much.” She said and just then, I saw my dad being wheeled towards us in a wheelchair by Moni. Then they stopped and just stared with smiles on their faces.
I pulled away and wiped my tears immediately.
She looked at me with smiles.
“Thank you Jeremy. Thank you for giving me another chance to love you like a mother loves her son.” She said and took my hand.
Then Moni wheeled my dad to our front and he was just smiling, and Moni as well.
“Thank you son.” Dad said to me..
Just then, I saw Doctor Sam. He was in smiles and was coming towards us.
He wore his sparkling white doctor coat with a stethoscope around his neck and a flat book in his hand.
We all stared at him till he got to us.
“Hello, happy family. I’ve got good news.” He announced,.still in his usual assuring smile.
“Richy is back to consciousness and he’s awake right now..” He said.
“Oh my God!..” Dad exclaimed.
“Oh Gracious God!” Moni said.
“This is good news.” Mom said.
I just smiled.
