BIMPE: **blocked my mouth** don't. Scream please,
people might be around. You know the wall has ears.
ME: bimpe, why did you hide this from me all this
BIMPE: ***crying** onihaxy, why not save that dieing
girl first and ask questions later.
ME: ok, where is she now?, where is the doctor and
what do I do now?
BIMPE: don't worry, I will take you to the doctor and
tell him you wanted to donate blood for daniella.
ME: what if he ask questions about my relationship
with you? Or your family?
BIMPE: don't worry, I work here, so no one will ask
you questions, let's go.
Bimpe dragged my hands and we ran straight into
the hospital, the fellow nurses at the reception were
screaming "nurse bimpe!!!, please take it easy!!!!". We
walked straight to the doctor's office.
DOC: come in please
BIMPE: hello doctor, please I have seen a donor,
please this is him **pointing at me***
DOC: hello young man.
ME: hello sir
DOC: you may take your seat please
ME: thank you sir. ****sat down***
DOC: nurse bimpe, please get me the apparatus, let
me screen his blood before transfusion
BIMPE: ok sir, *****left the office****
DOC: ***brought out a paper*****, young man, you
can write down you name here and sign at the
bottom of the paper.
ME: ***looked at the paper and it looked like a terms
and condition paper, I didn't bother to read I just put
my name and signed.** here is it sir.
DOC: ** received it from me *** ok.
BIMPE: ****knocked and opened the door*** here is

"biro ink tube like" pipe on my finger and my blood
ascended up the tube for few seconds before
removing it from my hand.*** Nurse bimpe!!

BIMPE: ok sir
DOC: *** opened the door and left***
BIMPE: ***silent, staring at me and trembling***
ME: please calm down bimpe, daniella will be fine
BiMPE: ok ooooo.
I could see the pains and fear in her eyes, bimpe was
just walking around up and down, very restless and
uncomfortable. Few minutes later, the doctor arrived
with a package.
BIMPE: welcome doctor. What's the result sir.
DOC: well, its good. A very perfect match,
BIMPE: **took a deep breath*** thank God
ME: ***took a deep breadth also***
DOC: young man, please come and lie here
***pointing at the bed inside his office.
ME: lied on the bed and placed my head on the
package like substance, a tiny drip pipe and syringe.
Inserted the needle inside my hand, hanged the
nlylon bag and after few seconds, my blood was
flowing inside the nylon for another 4 to 5 mins.
BIMPE: welldone doc.
DOC: ok bimpe. By the way, where is your husband?,
is he not back yet?
BIMPE: no sir, but he would be here any moment
DOC: alrite, I'm through. Please get this young man a
bottle of malt, he must be weak by now.
The doctor left with the blood package, I stood up
from the bed and I was truly weak. My eyes were
seriously turning and my legs were shaking.
ME: bimpe, how did the doctor knew that I will be
BiMPE: he tested your blood, so he knew the level of
ME: so what is he going to do next?
BiMPE: he is taking it to where daniella was
ME: ok, bimpe, I'm weak
BIMPE: let's go down to the reception, I will get you
a drink to take.
waist with one of her hand. She opened the door and
we stepped out of the doctor's office, immediately
she shut the doctor's office door, we saw betty
walking towards us with a bag on her hand.
BIMPE: **whispered*** just keep quiet onihaxy, I will
do the talking.
you, it was one of the nurses that told me you are
with the doctor. Hee!!, onihaxy!!!!, what are you doing
here?, how did you get here?, what happened to you?,
who brought you here?, why are you looking weak?,
please what is going on here?. ****walked towards
me and took bimpe's hands away from my waist
while she held me closely***
BIMPE: ***looked at me and blinked her eyes***
BETTY: ***dropped her handbag on the floor****
onihaxy, what's wrong with you?. Talk to me dear
That was the last thing I heard before I fainted.
That was what i heard while I was jerking back to
life. I looked around and saw myself on a hospital
from betty as she held my hands. Betty and a nurse
were the only people with me. The nurse later left
and I was alone with betty.
BETTY: ***rubbing my head and chest*** pele dear.
ME:***looking into her eyes**, what happened to
BETTY: you fainted for about 40 minutes.
BETTY: yes dear. Thank God you are awake now.
Aunty Bimpe said you donated blood to daniella.
Thanks so much dear.
ME: you are welcome.
BETTY: but wait onihaxy, how did you get here?, how
did you know that daniella was admitted here.
ME: I tried calling your line this morning and it was
picked by bimpe, she said there was an emergency
and that daniella fell off the stairs, so I rushed down
here. On getting to the hospital, I heard she needed
blood so I volunteered to donate.
BETTY: that's very kind of you, thanks so much
honey **kissed me***
ME: where is bimpe? how is daniella?.
BETTY: well, daniella is recovering. Aunty bimpe and
my brother are with her in her ward.
ME: you mean your brother is around?
BETTY: yes, about 10 minutes ago.
you still be able to attend it?
ME: why not?, I'm fit and strong now.
BETTY: that's my baby.
**still discussing and the door opens**
BETTY: **looked at the person who entered**** hi

HENRY: thank God, **stretched hand forward** I'm
ME: **strectched hand too for handshake**, I'm
HENRY: betty told me much about you. And I was
told you donated blood for daniella. Thanks so much

ME: you are welcome sir.
BETTY: where is Aunty Bimpe?
HENRY: she is with daniella.
BETTY: when will daniella be discharged?
HENRY: the doctor said in 2 to 3 days time.
ME: eeyah. May God heal her
HENRY and BETTY: amen oooo.
HENRY: betty, you can go home with bimpe, I will
stay here over the night with daniella.
BETTY: I'm not going anywhere. I'm staying too.
ME: ***turned to Henry***, I won't be able to stay sir,
I have an appointment tomorrow morning and I want
to go home and prepare for it.
HENRY: no problem bro, thanks so much.
**the door opened and bimpe entered**
BIMPE: onihaxy!!!, I'm happy you are awake now.
How are you? ***walked closer***
ME: I'm fine.
BIMPE: thank God. Well doctor said you can go today

ME: sure, I'm going today, I have an............
BETTY: ** looked into my eyes and blinked***
ME: ****i got the message that the job should be a
secret **** I have an appointment tomorrow morning
so I want to go home and prepare.
BIMPE: ok, in that case, I will drive you and drop you
off, you know you are weak, you shouldn't stress
yourself so much.
HENRY: very nice idea sweetheart, very thoughtful of
HENRY: mr onihaxy, when next are wee seeing you?.
ME: can't say, maybe tomorrow.
HENRY: we need to have a dinner together when we
all return home, and we have one or two things to
discuss. **looked into bimpe's eye and smiled***
ME: ok sir..
Henry returned to daniella's ward, betty, bimpe and I
walked out of the hospital to the car park. I could
read clearly the mood on betty's face. She wasn't
"Is this girl suspicious of something?"
I hugged her and we said we would chat on phone. I
opened the side door of bimpe's car and we drove
BIMPE: onihaxy, thanks so much for today, I never
things I put you through.
BIMPE: **parked after driving for some minutes**
ME: what's wrong, is the car faulty?
BIMPE: no, I stopped it and parked.
ME: why?, what happened?.
BIMPE: I want us to discuss a very serious issue.
ME: ok, what is it?
BIMPE: you know things could be complicated here if
we are not careful.
ME: I don't understand.
BIMPE: you know I love my husband and he loves me
BIMPE: the same way you love betty so much and
she also loves you too.
we will all be in trouble, the four of us. And things
will never be the same.
ME: and who is going to leak it?. You or I?.
BIMPE: I can never leak such secret. I have my
marriage to protect. But I don't trust you onihaxy.
Not now that revenge is written on your face.
ME: I'm not going to leak anything also.
BIMPE: I want to be rest assured. So I want us to do
ME: and what is it?
BIMPE: I want us to take an oath that our mouth will
forever be shut on this issue.
ME: what!!!!!!, oath
ME: what , oath!!!!!!!. Bimpe, why will such idea
flood your brain?.
BIMPE: onihaxy, can I have your phone please?.
ME: *** handed over the phone to her****
BIMPE: ***scroll through it** I just want to be sure
that this conversation is not recorded.
ME: ***laughed*** you are so funny bimpe.
BIMPE: onihaxy, Come to think of it, how do think
betty will feel when she finds out about this secret?.
BIMPE: then what is so difficult about what I want us
to do?, since its all about securing the person we
taking oath now.
BIMPE: yes, you are right. We are in good mood as
at now. What about tomorrow?, I might offend you or
you offend me and any of us might say it out of
annoyance. But when we remember we had a oath,
we would caution our mouth.
ME: ok, I agreed you are doing this to save yourself.
What do I stand to gain out of all these things?, or
will I just keep shut for nothing?.
BIMPE: **smiled**, onihaxy, I knew where you are
driving at. But I can assure you that you will enjoy a
life time benefit from it.
ME: benefits like what and what?,
BIMPE: wealth, money, and so on.
ME: and you expect me to trust you?
BIMPE: trust me this time onihaxy, I have no other
option than to be good to you. Your seed is already
ME: so are you trying to tell me that I should forget
BIMPE: **placed her hands on my cheek** no now
onihaxy. You will eventually settle down with betty,
raise your own kids and have your own family. So
why should daniella be a issue to us?. Just leave her
to me and henry. But only you and I know that you
are her real dad.
BIMPE: onihaxy, common na. This thing isn't difficult
as you portrayed it. What if daniella never had an
accident, will you ever find out?, NO!!. So please!!!.
ME: ok, first of all, I want to know. Why did you hide
this secret from me all this while?, tell me.
BIMPE: ok, you remembered I told you that I have a
boyfriend I was living with in Abuja when we met at
the hospital in abuja?.
BIMPE: it was this same henry, we never lived
together though, but he came to visit me that
weekend. I had unprotected sex with both of you on
the same day. His own was in the day while yours
was during the night.
ME: ok, I'm listening.
BIMPE: so, when I was pregnant, it was difficult to
figure out who owned the pregnancy. I told henry
about it and he was happy and we got married
ME: so how did you know that I own the child?.
BIMPE: when daniella was a year old, henry was sick
and he was admitted at the hospital. So I took the
chance to run a test on his blood. I did the same test
on daniella and I realized that the blood group and
genotype was different. That was when I was
convinced that you are her dad. Don't see me as a
bad person onihaxy.
BIMPE: if you could remember vividly, I stopped to be
harsh on you at a particular time until you met betty?
BIMPE: that was when I had the discovery. I felt
remorse but I just don't know how to tell you
because I knew you were looking for every means to
pull me down.
BIMPE: onihaxy, please I'm begging of you. Please,
let's make this oath. Please!!!!!,
ME: where are my credentials?, and what of my
nudes in your custody?.
BIMPE: I will hand over your credentials to you today,
infact, you are getting an automatic job from the
family company, a car will be giving to you also, I will
make sure I work everything out latest by weekend.
Your nudes have been deleted long time ago, you can
have my phone and go through it to be sure.
BIMPE: onihaxy please, I'm begging you for heaven's
sake, let's do this oath please.
ME: ok, give me little time, let me think about it.
BIMPE: onihaxy, why are you prolonging this thing
again?, its not worth thinking of, I'm not going to kill
you, neither am I going to use you for rituals.
Everything won't take us more than 10minutes
ME: and where and how is the oath going to be
BIMPE: at my Aunty's place. Not too far from here.
ME: ok, I will call you when I get home and I will give
BIMPE: huuuuuuuuh. Please now, let's do this thing
ME: I need to think it over first. I needed time.
***my phone rang and bimpe looked at the screen, it
was a call from segun***
BIMPE: did you see my fear now?, your friend must
not hear about this please. Ok, should I write a
cheque for you?. Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ME: Adebimpe, you know what?, just give me time, I
will get back to you.
BIMPE: no problem,
ME: ok, thanks
BIMPE: you can come down now and take a bus from
ME: ****raised eyebrow** why?, have I offended you
BIMPE: no, I just have to return to the hospital to
check on my daughter.
ME: ok, you are right,
BIMPE: I will call you later.
ME: **held the handle of the door** ok dear.
BIMPE: onihaxy wait,
ME: what is it?
BIMPE: I just want you to realize something, if you go
ahead and escalate this issue, the only thing I might
loose is my marriage, I have acquired enough to
sustain me and keep me moving. Its you that I just
pitied, you will have a lot of things to loose, and at
the end, you might loose your life.
ME: my life?, are you threatening me bimpe?.
BIMPE: ***laughs*** its not a threat, its a reality.
Henry loves daniella so much as if his life depends
on her. And when he finds out that he had wasted his
time and resources taking care of another man's
child, I know what he can do. Onihaxy, you are not
enough to realize that its not everything you tell
ME: what do you mean?
BIMPE: did you know that you suffered a lot just
because a friend was deciding for you?.
ME: and how is that your business?,
BIMPE: no vex, I'm just letting you to know that
sometimes, its good to keep your mouth shut.
ME: I heard you, take care.
BIMPE: wait onihaxy
ME: what is it again?
BIMPE: Henry said I should give you 20,000 for your
transport fare, but I decide to add 30,000 on my own
as a sign of appreciation, please manage it for us ***
brings out a 50 pieces of 1000notes from her bag****
ME: *** Accepted it **** thank you so much, and my
regards to your husband. Help me to thank him also.
BIMPE: you are welcome. Your credentials is with me
at home, when next you visit us, I will give them to
ME: what if betty see us, what will be my
BIMPE: I think you are right. I will find another
means to deliver them to you.
ME: ok, see you some other time.
BIMPE: onihaxy wait!!!!!,
BIMPE: your phone,
ME: oooops, I have forgotten, **collected my phone
As I was about to open the door again, bimpe held
my hand, I looked at her, she pulled her head closer
and kissed me for like 6 seconds. I was shocked and
surprised. and with a grin on her face, she said
"Onihaxy, I just don't know the reason why, of recent,
I find myself loving you again and the feelings are
getting stronger day by day".
On hearing this, my dick signalled immediately.
I dropped from her car and proceed to where I board
a bus back to oshodi. I began to think of all our
conversations and I was like " is this new love for
real?, or another Trap?". While I was still thinking,

annoying attitudes towards you, you still risk your life
helping her and saving her daughter.
ME: that's life my dear, you don't pay evil with evil.
BETTY: onihaxy, you don't get it, I'm talking about
someone who doesn't want you to get a job with the
family company and someone who bad-mouthed you

someone who so much hated you with passion
