HE WAS A BILLIONAIRE Episode 22 – AUTHOURESS CAROLUCHY

time maybe I will get used to it. **KELVIN’S POV**

I got to Cynthia’s place,I never wanted to have anything to do with her, but I had no choice,I needed to find my daughter.

As soon as I stepped into the compound.

She drove in,I was fortunate enough to met her,if not ,her security man might inform me to come back later.

I stood aside and waited for her to alight from her car.

She stopped and glanced at me,then she walked towards me.

“Kelvin?

“Hy cynthia..I…”

So ashamed to start a conversation, I wonder if she knew about my mental illness then.

“Please come in”She replied tartly

I was surprised, she invited me in.

“Actually i..only came to ask you a question,if you know Special’s whereabouts,is she staying with you?”

She was frozen at my question

“Special?,is she missing?”

I wanted to hold back but I couldn’t, a tear dropped down my chin.

I shifted my head to the other side, hiding my tears .

“Ah I am so sorry ,Kelvin it’s all my fault, I was so desperate and..”

“Cynthia please, it’s not your fault,it’s mine,before you came into our lives,we lived fine,I was the one who messed up, I appreciate your concern ,thanks,I will be on my way now”.

“Kelvin I know you hate me,I was bad and evil to Special, all these time,I finally realized how stupid and crazy I was ,just because I had a chance to meet my dream man,unfortunately I lost him…please let me help look for Special,please”.

I chuckled sadly.

“What am I supposed to do with my life,my daughter is somewhere dark and lonely maybe dangerous crying and calling for me,and I have no clue where and how to find her”.

I burst into tears

Cynthia tried her best to console me and invited me in,but I refused and insisted to keep searching

I permitted her to search too if she wished.

Another day gone ,still I failed to get my daughter back.

I feel like screaming on top of my voice ,calling out to her this midnight but even the thought of that made my heart so heavy ,I just cry it out,no matter how long it takes I won’t stop searching.

Tomorrow I will go to the radio stations for the announcement.

I closed my eyes and allow the tears to roll

 freely.

(3 years later)

**SPECIAL’S POV**

The first year was awful I fell sick almost every weekend, but today i was stronger

I never forgotten my dad or lose hope of meeting him again,that will never happen.

Staying with Angela was really an experience of a lifetime.

“Daddy I am going to write my junior waec soon,I hope I see you soon”.

The door opened.

I was spacing out in thoughts about Dad

“Guess what I bought for my baby girl”

I turned, the sight of her made me smile.

“You’re back”I said , not too excited.

“Yeah!” Then she paused and tilted her head “You look pale”.

She gazed at my diary, then she sighed deeply.

“I am sure he is going to meet you someday,you dreamt of it so it’s sooner than expected”.

“But ..not all dreams come true aunty,and besides its 3 yrs now and…”

“Hey ,don’t lose hope,we will continue sending the information on websites and tv stations, we will keep fighting “.

She came and hugged then I pecked her cheek.

“That’s my girl,now guess what I bought for you?”

She was all red and strangely excited with her annoying chuckles..

“Whatever it is I am sure it’s not good”

I replied sarcastically.

“Come on,are you saying, I will buy something that is not good for you”

She faked a cry face.

“Alright ,what did you buy?”

 I said and tried peeking at the shopping bags

“No way,you can guess from peeking at it,well grandma I bought you..”

She pulled out a dozen bras in a package from the nylon.

“Bra!!!”

“Bra?”I grimaced.

“Those melons on your chest need covering baby”.

She threw it at me.

Then a dozen sanitary pads.

“I am yet to use those,”I pouted.

“Well you never know when it will happen “

She said with a wink pulling her shoes off.

I rolled my eyes, annoyed.

I heard of menstrual problems. I don’t want to have one yet,I am so scared.

She fell on the bed.

“Gosh I was feeling like a proud mama,buying those stuff,my baby is all grown up,I wonder if your daddy is gonna recogn… “

“Of Course he will”

I snapped without letting her finish.

She smiled back ,and sat up,then dragged me down on the bed.

“Come here grandma!!”

She caresses my hair.

“I am not grandma,you’re scattering my hair”I yelled pouting.

“Yes you are,with those rose petals on your chest you are now grandma”.

I get really annoyed these days,she always tells me I have adolescent issues.

She started pecking me.I love her ,regardless  annoying, yet so loving

I don’t ever want to stay away from my Angela.

The doorbell rang.

“I will get it”.

I told her and ran towards the door,putting on the armless bra under my polo,it fit perfectly.I love them but I don’t want Angela to know,I kinda feel uncomfortable for the first

I opened the door ,It was  our neighbor

“Good day sir “

“Good day dear, is your aunty at home?”

I nodded and called out

“Aunty Angela!!”

No answer.

“Please come in ,I will go tell her”.

“Thanks my dear “.

I walked back to the room,and found her snoring tiredly.

I didn’t want to wake her up,so I went back to Mr Hassan.

“She’s really deep asleep, is there any message you would like me to pass to her”.

“Alright, just give her these”.

He handed a gift bag to me,Mr Hassan is another admirer of Sweet Angela”.

“Will do that, take care sir”.

Immediately he left,I dropped the bag on the couch.

HE WAS A BILLIONAIRE HE WAS A BILLIONAIRE HE WAS A BILLIONAIRE HE WAS A BILLIONAIRE HE WAS A BILLIONAIRE HE WAS A BILLIONAIRE

I want her to meet dad,maybe they can work things out, I am certain she loves dad,even without seeing him or knowing his personality, so its sealed that she will love him,she keep a copy of dad’s pic on her  bedside just like I did,but I am scared,after what happened with cynthia,daddy won’t give in that easily ,also dad is nowhere to be found, she can’t keep turning down all the men that comes her way.

I sighed and walked towards  the room carrying the bag.

I got to the room and placed the gift bag beside her, then I helped her pull off her jacket. She was sweating and our air conditioner was no longer working.

We were the only ones that were not able to pay the Electricity bill so they had to disconnect our lights.

I used to go to the neighbors and watch movies sometimes.

Goodmorning

I just found out you can vote again the next day.Please help me out with voting till month end.

All you have to do is go back to the link and vote each day, thanks.

**10:30pm**

“Special!!”

“Huh? What happened aunty?”

I snapped curiously still sleepy, I looked at her tiredly.

“Nothing happened, I was thinking about your dad all night”.

I glare at her in a manner that ask ,what the heck you talking about,she’s crushing hard on daddy.

“What if we go back to your old place?”

“What if he is here searching for me,it’s not really that hopeful”.

“Well let’s give it a try, it’s been three years, so why not change the environment”.

I never wanted to tell her about dad’s condition, Gina said he is mentally ill, I was hoping to see him but since I got older I knew I only have hope ,and never to expect a miracle.

“Alright, let’s go tomorrow “

I went back to bed,I tried not to cry out loud,it hurts so much,each time i got reminded of him.

**KELVIN’S POV**

“Oga you no go sell  250?”

“Shebi I steal am na,if you no wan buy about comot for my parlor”.

I barked at her.

Customers can be annoying

Imagine pricing a half bucket of garri 250.

I pushed my barrow back to the shop,I wanted to open my shop then I felt a sharp pain in my chest and blacked out.

I could only hear faint muttering of people around me

*****

“I told You not to think much”.

“Doctor, put yourself in my shoes, my 10 year old went missing three years ago,I tried everything to get to her but to no avail. If you can end my life with an injection please I will be grateful”.

“Please don’t say such a thing or I won’t attend to you next time,do you know what you are asking for? You want me to lose my job?”

He sighed.

“You will find your daughter, people do miss you for years and later return home”.

“People you say, not a child”.

“Mr Kelvin, at this rate you should stop if you love your life,I have tried my best,people die at the spot because of this”.

The doctor snapped with arched brows.

 After the doctor’s counseling,I went back home, lying on my bed,I pulled out the cigarette from my pocket.

Staring at my daughter’s picture at the other end of the bed.

I lit the cigar and smoked a little then I got up and took the alcohol I bought on my way back.

I was trying to not think too much just like the doctor said.

And this stuff isn’t helping.

“I can’t give up ,never”

I don’t know if it’s the drink or just my bravery.I got up and started looking for Special in the night. I kept walking straight towards no direction.

My life has been this pathetic

Cynthia tried to reach out to me,but I never welcomed her.

Her new turn a leaf act,isn’t worth it,you feel sorry for me and Special?

I wonder what the bitch thinks of me

If she had never…

Well I should blame me and let the bitch be,I never should have let her near my daughter.

The next morning ,I was able to walk all night,I sat on an empty chair at a market place, trying to figure out where I was.

My feet and laps were seriously aching from last night.

Who am I kidding,I have been doing this many times for the past three years.

I broke down,passersby stared at me curiously.

“I should just die”

I mumbled to myself.

My phone rang.

It’s the minister who prayed for me

I stopped calling him 2 years ago after his prayer of getting back with my daughter was in vain, I even stopped going to church, I lost my faith in God.

He called back many times but I never answered.

“Hello”

“Thank goodness bro Kelvin”.

I rolled my eyes.

“I have a good dream concerning you these days , been trying your number”.

” I appreciate so much that you gave me back my sanity but if you continue bugging me I will go back to my former state”.

I was rude but it doesn’t matter.

“Bro Kelvin don’t say like that,I didn’t give you your sanity It was God Almighty ,you sound so hurt,but don’t worry things will be  fine”.

I hung up.

“Stupid church people looking for members”.

Even though I know this man wasn’t even trying to make a member for some reason I hate him so much for no reason,I hate myself ,everything that is called human around me.

**SPECIAL’S POV**

“Some people are coming down here?”

I asked Angela.

She smiled back.

“Why not maybe it’s their nearest bus stop”.

“But it’s not the motor park,they’re taking our time”.

I said annoyed,this motor company is annoying stopping at every marketplace.

Next time I will make sure, aunty Angela won’t buy their ticket.

I looked out of the window, there my eyes caught with a man’s back view,he was walking exactly like dad when he’s weak or sick.

Remembering him brought tears to my eyes. Our bus started moving again,I guess it’s not the last bus stop.

I didn’t move my eyes from him

Then he turned and checked the vehicles before crossing the road.

It was Dad! It was Dad!

“Dad!!!”

I yelled my soul out.

Goodmorning

I just found out you can vote again the next day.

Please help me out with voting till month end.

Thanks

Angela was alerted and looked at the direction I was staring. I started hitting the window, crying.

“Please driver stop us”.

I heard Angela pleading with the driver.

The passengers started mumbling why we didn’t come down before,the driver refused to.

I pulled the window, pulled my head out  shouting, it created a scene.

He already crossed the road heading away.

“Are you sure it’s him,don’t worry we will get to him,just be happy he is in this town”Angela mouthed.

I shoved her aside and walked to the driver.

“Stop the bus!!,or I killl myself “

I threatened with a knife.

“Where did you get that Special!”

Angela asked in surprise, astonished by my actions.

The passengers told the driver to let us go.

On a normal day ,you should scold a thirteen year old and take this statement as a joke but my voice was real.

He hit the break and barked at us to get the hell out of the bus.

I rushed out leaving the luggage with Angela, she thanked the driver and followed behind me.

I zoomed ,searching carefully ,my breath fastened.

“I can’t find him”

I burst out crying.

I ran towards the direction then I found him buying sachet water from a hawker.

I carelessly crossed the busy road

Angela screamed out loudly at of shock I almost got hit by a car

“Daddy!!”

I yelled running with all my strength

He heard me, I guess and turned

after pouring the sachet water on his head wetting his whole body.

He was looking at me like he saw a ghost ,do I look that different?

I got closer and threw myself on him

He was frozen,he didn’t even wrap his arms around me.

“Please let it not be a dream God!!”

I cried loudly hugging him so tightly with my eyes closed.

“Please God this shouldn’t be a dream”

I cried out loudly still hugging him tightly.
