The ambulance arrived at the hospital and Angelina was quickly rushed inside inside followed by them all. And they tried going with the nurses but they were stopped by one of them and they closed the emergency ward to check on Angelina. As they walked to and fro in the hospital waiting room,Mrs Graham entered with her handbag and she was walking straight to her husband's ward when she saw Mr Brandon and stopped. She was over excited.
'' Pastor! ''.
'' Eunice? ''. They both embraced each other.
'' Oh the Lord has answered my prayers. I was even praying that God should make a miracle so that I !EET you even before your friend dies ''.
'' David? I heard what happened, am so sorry Eunice, where is he? ''.
'' He is dying in that ward oo ''. She pointed at a door in front of them with tears. '' Your friend is in there,and paralysed. He can't talk or even shake his body ''.
'' Let's go and see him ''.
They all walked together into doctor Graham's ward and Kelvin was watching over him. He got up,looking at all of them strangely and his mum got closer to doctor Graham and caressed him. They all stood there starring at him. He opened his eyes and when saw Mr Brandon, he tried his best to talk and raise his hand at the same time but the stroke pulled him back down at once and he couldn't control that pain,Mr Brandon went closer to him and touched his forehead and closed his eyes.
'' Hmmm.... ''. He said,shaking his head.
'' What is it man of God? ''. Mrs Graham asked.
'' This is not a physical problem Eunice ''.
'' I said it! Hey....I said it ooo,my house witches are trying to ruin my family for me ''.
'' When will he be discharged? ''.
'' Has the nurses told you anything? ''. She asked,looking at Kelvin's face.
'' No mam ''.
'' Mum? ''. Mr Brandon asked in surprise. '' Is that Kelvin? ''.
'' Yes pastor, of is your own nephew Kelvin... he returned from the USA,just a week ago ''.
'' Wow! God is wonderful ''. He turned to Kelvin. '' You were a little baby when I last saw you Kelvin... now look at you. You are even taller me ''.
They all laughed.
'' So,what are we going to do now pastor? ''.
'' He needs to be discharged immediately, because with all the infusion they've given him right now,u won't be able to pray like am supposed to ''.
'' Okay,will see what I can do about that ''. Mrs Graham said.
'' He will be fine. I am going to prepare myself for this battle ''.
'' Why are you here pastor? Did you come to see my husband? ''.
'' Yes I was planning to come and see him soon but it wasn't exactly why I came here ''.
'' Oh my God,don't tell me you are also not feeling well.... ''.
'' I am fine. Just that...a girl I have taken to be my own daughter was involved in a very fatal accident and she was rushed here that's why am here ''.
'' What?! ''. Kelvin was amazed. '' Angelina? Is it Angelina? ''.
'' Yeah yeah ''. Mr Brandon was surprised. '' Do you know her? ''.
'' Not really sir...I met her earlier two days ago,she was brought here because she had an injured arm and that's were I got to know her,and she told me she lived with you....but what happened to her now sir? ''.
'' It's a long story my boy. But her condition doesn't seem to be good at all ''.
'' Can I see her please... I'll help ''.
'' Oh sure...let's go ''.
'' Stay here with dad mum. We'll be back ''.
Kelvin walked out with Mr Brandon and got to the waiting room where Danny,Nickel and Diana were sitting and waiting impatiently.
'' Has the doctor checking on her come to say anything? ''.
'' We have been waiting for,getting to 2 hours now...but no one has even come out from that emergency room to say anything ''.
'' I will go in there to see what's happening sir ''. Kelvin said and entered the emergency room.
'' Who is he dad? ''.
'' won't remember him son. You two used to play when you were just toddlers, until when I had to take you to the UK for your mother's burial. But that is doctor Graham's son Kelvin ''.
'' Is he also a doctor? ''. Danny asked.
'' A qualified one. He is just 20. But he does things other older doctors can't even do ''.
'' Hmmmm...hope he does what he can to save my sister. Because if anything happens to her,I will have no choice but to kill myself too ''.
'' Shut up and start saying positive things. She will be fine ''. Mr Brandon sit and they all started praying silently.
'' Today is her birthday Mr Brandon ''. Danny wept. '' Angelina is 14 years today.
'' Oh wow...Hmmmm,this is the worse birthday anyone can ever get. I hope God can have mercy on us and save her,she deserves better than this ''.
'' is Angelina's birthday? ''. Nickel asked with a smile.
'' Exactly... and now,she can't celebrate it because of you! ''. Danny answered coldly.
Nickel then turned to leave the hospital and Mr Brandon held his hand.
'' Where are you going? ''.
'' I will be back dad...please let me go ''.
'' We are all in danger Nickel. Be very careful ''.
'' I will dad ''.
'' May God be with you ''.
Mr Brandon said and Nickel walked out of the hospital.
(Under the sea=In the marine kingdom).
There was absolute chaos that the queen couldn't control her anger but to push down all the marine statues away and throwing bowls of sanctification water away as well. And neither the goat men nor the other macho men could calm her down. She felt absolutely defeated and powerless, she had never being this humiliated and useless.
And the goat men couldn't do anything, she killed two of them at once,which !ade the ladies shiver.
'' What else can I do! What else do I have to do finish off Angelina? She has taken almost everything from me! Now,of all the four elements of nature, am the laughing stock among them all,I am the queen of the sea,but the fire Lord, the earth king and the air queen are all laughing at me! ''.
'' Your Highness.. let your heart relax,for I have a great news for you ''. Lady Shanty said.
'' And what is that? You better make sure it is a tangible reason. Or else I will punish you dearly ''.
'' Your highness, indeed.. it is a good news. Your Highness... the good news is,Angelina is in a very bad condition at the hospital right now after the battle with Lady Molio, so everyone's with her ''.
'' So? ''.
'' My queen,the thing is,as Angelina is now unconscious, we have full advantage of that boyfriend of hers and her brother, the two most important people in her life ''.
'' She is no longer interested in Nickel, so killing him wouldn't be any interesting... is this the idiot thing you called a good news? ''. She roared angrily.
'' Wait your Highness. There is something else. My queen,we have forgotten that woman who hated Angelina so much ''.
'' What woman? ''.
'' Her aunt. The one they called Okereke. Remember, Angelina threw she and her family's out of her parent's house ''.
'' Oh yeah... The woman behind the reason Angelina joined this cult... what has she got to do with all this? ''.
'' Your highness, how about we looking for that woman? She is Angelina's aunty after all. And we can use her to finish Angelina once and for all. How about, we look for her? ''.
'' Hmmm...what a great idea lady are right. So am leaving this job in your hand. Do what Lady Molio couldn't. More or so,you will have to leave your powers behind, just like we did to Lady Molio, actually... I just want Angelina to come back to the cult,but before I can do that,the pastor and his son must be eliminated. I have put this task into your hands okay,and I promise you that,when we succeed over them,I will make sure you get the promotion to be my right hand witch ''.
They all laughed and celebrated because even if they were defeated, there was still hope.
(For Life Hospital).
The family was still waiting and finally some doctors come out of the theatre followed by Kelvin wo had a sethescope around his neck. The two doctors he came with,left to tend to other patients. He stood in front of them and they all got their feet.
'' Now? ''.
'' Relax...we examined her,she has got so many injuries around her whole body sir ''.
'' So what is your conclusion she fine or not? ''.
'' Well,not really. But she's stable now...when she regained consciousness, she was in so much pain and she was about loosing her breath...but thank goodness she's kinda okay ''.

'' Today is her birthday? ''. Kelvin asked,being surprised.
'' Yes...please can we see her? ''.
'' I am sorry..but no. It is against the hospital rules. We have performed surgery on her because a spinal cord was affected due to a heavy blow. So she's still in a critical condition... just relax. I suggested you go home for today and come back tomorrow. This is what you can do now ''.
'' He is right Danny,but Kelvin.. who is going to watch over her? ''. Mr Brandon asked.
'' Leave that to me sir,I will make sure to examine her through the night ''.
'' Okay,we understand. But please doctor, can I make some food for her when we are coming tomorrow? ''. Diana asked.
'' Of course,sure. With any luck, she might open her eyes tomorrow, make sure the food is nutritious, and add lots of fruits too ''.
They all left and some minutes later,Kelvin stood at the waiting hall,walking to and fro. His mother got out from doctor Graham's ward and got to him.
'' Are they gone already? ''.
'' Yes mam. They will be here tomorrow morning ''.
'' That's good,and how is the girl? ''.
'' She is responding to treatment ''.
'' What are you doing here? I am on my way home...I need you to look after your father ''.

'' I will explain later mam...just go ''.
'' Hmmmm okay. May God be with you ''. She said and left.

Yes,I found your number online, so I called to make an order for the most expensive flower. I will make payment once your workers deliver it to me here ''.

(Next Day=For Life Hospital).
It was exactly 6am and Kelvin was still walking around the hospital compound, he had brought a toothbrush and brushed his teeth, his mum had to bring the clothes he requested so that he could take his bath in the hospital bathroom and feel fresh again.
But his mother was not the reason why he was standing at the hospital's compound, he was waiting for his order. He quickly made a call again, but no one answered from the flower shop and he was annoyed and devastated, even though Angelina already had a family, he wanted to be the first person to give Angelina this first special gift. Even though her birthday had passed,it felt current to him and he wanted to share it with her,so he wasn't going to spare that flower shop at all if they delayed and spoilt his surprise.
He kept checking his wrist watch and it was already getting to 7am when had asked them ti deliver at exactly 6am. He was thinking that Mr Brandon and the family must have being on their way to the hospital with their surprises, he was so angry.
And the hospitals opened gate only showed people passing by,no sign of Amy car or a motorbike to assure him of them. One of the nurses immediately rushed from the building to him.
'' What is going on? ''.
'' Sir...the patient you operated on yesterday has opened her eyes. She is awake ''.
'' Angelina? go inside. Am coming ''.
The nurse left and Kelvin turned to walk inside when a private car quickly arrived and parked in front if the entrance. He turned with a frown and folded hands together on his chest. A man got out from the car with a very big pack of flowers with wishing cards and medium parceled box in the middle.
Kelvin walks to him in annoyance and looked at him from head toe and shook his head. He put his hand in his pocket and removed his purse, still frowning.
'' I swear to you man,if it wasn't that we were in the hospital, I would break your face ''.
'' I understand sir,we are really sorry for the delay, but the flowers you requested was very hard to find...because it was one of the most expensive ones,and we were short of it ''.
'' So what....did you get some of it or now? ''.
'' We did sir,all of it are packaged in it ''.
Kelvin counted the money and gave the price the man had requested and took the flowers. The man sat in the car and drive away. Kelvin turned to the entrance of the building and took a deep breath. He held it tightly and walked into the hospital and went straight into Angelina's ward.
She layed there with her eyes closed and he closed the door behind him and placed the flowers right beside Angelina's left side,since that was the place her head was facing and the door too. He poked his head out of the gate and made a sign to almost five nurses who were passing by with trays containing surgical equipments to quickly enter. They entered with worried faces because they had to go and perform surgery on one of the patients.
'' Wait a little while ''. Kelvin whispered to them. '' Yesterday was her birthday and she didn't get time or strength to celebrate I will like we all to sing a birthday song for her as soon as she opens her eyes,is that clear? ''.
'' Sir please, one of the patients is in a very critical condition right now...and we need to perform surgery as soon as possible ''. One nurse said in sweat.
'' think I care about some other patient? Just shut up and o as I say,that patient would be alright ''. Kelvin replied, looking at Angelina.
'' Sir please..... ''.
Just by that moment, Angelina opened her eyes and saw the big bunch of flowers which smelt so good. But her vision was blur and couldn't see anything clearly. Then Kelvin with the nurse,together raised their voices and began to sing to her. She heard it clearly and her vision was clear now and she smiled widely even though she wa in a lot of pain by that moment.
She watched them singing and she couldn't control showing her teeth in a gleeful smile. After they were done,Kelvin escorted them out and went back into the ward then closed the door behind him. He folded his arms at the door smiling at her,and Angelina's smile disappeared. And tears run down her cheeks. Kelvin took a handkerchief out of his pocket and wiped her tears away.
'' Can you please help me sit up? I hate lying down like this ''.
'' Oh sure I can. Wait a minute ''. He said and went out,and came back with three pillows and slowly pulled Angelina's back from the bed and placed the three pillows there. '' Careful Angelina... we performed surgery on you,slowly lift yourself up by help ''.
'' Cool ''. I lifted myself and Kelvin adjusted the pillows behind me,making me lean on it.
'' Good ''.
'' Thank you. I am in a lot of pain. Please, can I get some pain killers? ''
'' I am I heard you've not eaten. You have to et first before I can inject you with pain killers ''.
'' I can't believe Mr Brandon and everyone's else is not here. I mean.... ''.
'' Don't worry. They were here yesterday.. But I made them leave because it was late...they must be on their way by now. Mr Brandon, your brother ad some other woman ''.
'' And Nickel?! ''. I asked on impulse.
'' Who is Nickel? ''. Kelvin asked looking confused.
'' he's nobody. I remember, a year parents were still alive,and they made my birthday the not special... but everything has changed now as am an orphan and completely Aline in the world ''.
'' I am sorry about that ''. But you are not Aline...I brought you this ''. Kelvin said an carried the flowers from the table with the parceled box in it. '' This is for you Angelina... happy birthday ''.
'' Wow..really? ''. I took it from him and placed it on my laps. I was in hospital clothes so no worries. I took the box out of it and tore the parcel. To my surprise, it w a beautiful golden bracelet and a box of chocolates. I was so excited, it had being a long time since I ate something sweet. But Kelvin was the first person who had brought sweetness back to me. I removed the chocolate wrapper and took some of it and opened my mouth....
'' No no can't et that now ''. He said with laughter. '' You have to et something first so relax ''.
Kelvin said and I placed the chocolate back into the box. He pulled a metal chair and st besides my bed looking into my eyes with a smile. I was totally confused as in why he looked at me that way. But he was damn handsome. Even though Nickel was more handsome then him,but he had sense than Nickel.
At least he was wise enough to make my birthday that special. Not that stupid Nickel whom I saved and is nowhere to be found now.
(Outside the hospital).
An exclusive car arrived and an exclusive man,Nickel Brandon got out of the car with a very big box which wa parceled and behind him,was a very big track which were filled with thousand men. The men were dressed in suit and tie with trumpets and guitars and other musical instruments and they wore hat on their heads.
Nickel was looking all fresh and gentle and he wa with his best friend Bill. Nickel looked into his car mirror to check whether he was looking great and he gave himself a thumb up.
'' You look great man ''.
'' Bill,do you think it's really good Ife that am doing, I really don't feel right ''.
'' You are such an idiot, you brought this idea up and want to back out? ''.
'' Not really, but Angelina hates me right now with everything I did to her ''.
'' It wasn't your fault Nicky! Keep that in your head,and if Angelina is wise,she will know that. Just take your chances and let's do this. She will forgive you ''. Bill said and turned to the musicians. '' Boys! You ready? ''.
'' Yes sir! ''. They replied in chorus.
'' Okay...on your !ark,get set..let's go!!! ''.
The musicians began to sing '' If love is a crime '' by 2face. It was so touching at that moment as Nickel remembered the little sweet time he had spent with Angelina nd it break his heart to think the fact that they couldn't be together due to queen Marina's plans.
His hands were shaking as he held the special parceled box for Angelina. He was having doubts whether he should enter the hospital or not. The thousands of people passing by and standing by,and the traders were all looking surprised as someone was making such noise in the hospital. Some nurses got out and stood there looking surprised at the gentlemen and couldn't say anything but to enjoy the moment too.
(Angelina's Ward).
I sat there and heard a song outside and it was so loud and disturbing, but I did enjoyed the song. But who had the authority to disturb patients in the hospital. I was still nodding my head head to the song but Kelvin was worked up and annoyed. He got on his feet and s he WS abi to walk out,one of the nurses arrived in a haste.
'' What the hell is going on out there? ''.
'' Sir...please ooo,two young men has invaded the hospital with musicians and instruments and are singing the song ''.
'' Who the hell do they think they are anyway? I will teach someone a lesson ''. He said and was about getting out.
'' Sir... ''.
'' What?! Look after Angelina and let me go and check who the hell that is ''.
'' of them is Nickel Brandon ''.
'' What?! ''. I shouted.
'' What?! ''. Kelvin also aid.
'' Yes sir. Nickel Brandon. He is pastor Brandon's son ''.
Kelvin turned to look at my shocked face and everything was confusing to him. I was wondering what was going on out there in confusion too. But deep inside me,I knew this chaos had something to do with me. Then suddenly, the music changed to '' Soledad '' by Westlife.
(On the Sahara road to the For Life Hospital).
Mr Brandon drove his car with Diana besides him and Danny at the backseat who couldn't wait to see his sister. Mr Brandon who wa driving was at the same time,trying Nickel's line but it wasn't going through and it had him worried. By that same moment, Lady Shanty who was ready to take over had put aside the queen's warnings of taking her powers along to earth and quickly appeared on the road.
'' I don't know why Nickel is also adding more fuel to the fire,why is he not even picking up my calls? ''.
'' I guess he knows he has loosed Angelina and so he wants attention now ''.
'' Like seriously, Danny? By this time of our lives...are you still blaming Nickel for Angelina's situation? Then you are actually going to kill yourself when they are married ''. Diana mocked.
'' Get married,oh we'll see about that okay? I think Angelina is wiser than that ''. He said whiles browsing on his phone.
'' I have to deliver doctor Graham and Angelina immediately... I have a feeling that something very explosive is about to go down ''.
'' Something like what pastor? ''.
Just when Mr Brandon loosed concentration, Lady Shanty raised her hands up and pointed it at the car from a corner and arrows flew from her hand and blasted Mr Brandon's car tyres and he loosed control and hit somebody on the road with blood splashing all over the road.
The queen appeared and gave Lady Shanty a dirty slap. They both disappeared quickly. Almost everyone around the road side rushed to the scene. Some of them started making call. Mr Brandon an the rest got out of the car in shock. The woman he hit was a woman who was carrying fresh oranges for sale.
She was lying on the floor with her face on the ground. Mr Brandon bent down with Danny in fight and Diana started dialing the hospital's number. Mr Brandon slowly turned the woman's face up and Danny was shocked.
'' Nooo! ''.
'' What now? ''.
'' That is my mother pastor...mum! ''. Danny screamed.....
