She was staring at him but her mind was feeling sorry towards him. Justin can’t just believe his ears. Madam Susan was also surprise to see her act like that. Mr Robinson quickly moved to her side. “He’s Justin. Your childhood friend.”he said looking at Sarah. Madam Susan also went closer”can you remember me?”she asked her. Sarah nodded her head saying yes. “Then what about the rest, can you remember them?”madam Susan asked her again and she said yes. “What of dad,can you remember dad?”Mr Robin asked. She smiled nodding her head. Mrs Henry was so confused she can recognize everyone except her son.
“Then why can’t you remember me? Charlie it’s me Justin”Justin said staring at her. “Am so sorry Justin. Sorry for doing this to you. But I have no choice”Charlie thought to herself staring at his face. “I said I don’t. Everyone should go. I think I need to rest now. Am having a slight headache”Sarah said turning to the other side to hide the tears that were about falling from her eyes.
Justin stared at her as she said that. He doesn’t know what to say. He was short of word by what Charlie just say.
“Oh sorry dear. It’s time to rest. We’ll check back on you later”Mr Robinson said. They all prepare to leave except justin who stood still on a spot like a palanquin.
Mrs Henry went to him and placed her hand on his shoulder”it’s OK son. Let’s leave for now. She might regain those memories when she have enough rest”she said. He stared at her for a while before leaving with his mum.
Sarah eyes were soaked with tears already. “Justin am sorry. We are not meant to be together. I can’t turn my back on my mum for you. Please forgive me”Sarah said crying.
When Justin got home, he went straight to his room and closed the door behind him. He walked slowly to his bed still thinking about what Sarah said back there. The question repeated itself in his head over and over again. “Who are you? Who are you? Who are you?”he kept thinking about it. “Charlie what happened to you?”he asked himself sitting gently on his bed.
He dipped his hand in his pocket and brought out a small black box. He opened the box looking at the shining necklace in it. Before his mum got back from Mr Robinson, he got a necklace for Charlie. He planed to surprise her with that when they arrive. He closed the box and dropped it in the drawer beside his bed.
He leaned his head back on his bed closing his eyes.
When Clara got to her friends, she narrated everything to them.
“Can you believe Charlie is Mr Robinson’s daughter? I saw it with my eyes as he called her his daughter. What was that name again?…”she said trying to recollect the name he called Charlie. Hanna and Mina stared at her like someone that’s out of her mind. “What’s she blabbing about?”Hanna said rolling her eyes. “Sarah. Yes he called her Sarah”Clara said looking at them. Mina and Hanna looked at each other shaking their heads in pity. “Mina let’s go inside. Your friend is going crazy”hanna said standing up from the couch. “Am telling you guys the truth. She’s Mr Robinson’s daughter”Clara repeated looking at them as they left her and went upstairs. “Does it sound unbelievable? But am telling them the truth”Clara said to herself before she also went to join them.
Little Sarah was in the living with Justin watching cartoons. Suddenly Mrs Robinson came into the living room holding her phone. She took Sarah by her arm”Sarah let’s go”she said smiling as she held her tiny hand but Sarah can fell her hand shaking. Sarah looked behind her mum and saw a man standing behind the wall. He stood in a way, only half of his body and face were showing. He wore a black suite just like a rich business man and a gold wrist watch that has a shape of the moon inside it. Sarah can’t really see his face clearly because he didn’t appear in full shape. But she can see the wrist watch on his left wrist and the moon in it shining like a gold. The man saw Sarah’s face and hid properly. Mrs Robin looked back and took sarah rushing out.
She got to the car and help Sarah in putting on the seat belt for her. She turned to sit at the driver seat then started the engine. She rushed out of the compound in speed. With her hand shaking seriously. “Mummy what happened?”Sarah asked looking at her mum’s face. “It’s nothing dear. We’ll soon be home”Rachel said smiling. Sarah looked at the side mirror and saw a car following them. “Mum be careful my head hurt”Sarah said as Rachel increased the speed. “Am sorry dear. We’ll soon be home”Rachel said picking her phone from her side. She was typing something but Sarah has no idea of what she’s typing. She speed up as the car almost got to them. Sarah became scared and started crying. “Mum my head hurt. Drive slowly. Mummy why are you like this? Mummy!”Sarah cried as Rachel drives in speed. “Am sorry. Please don’t cry.”Rachel said looking at Sarah. “Mummy stop! Mummy why are you like this?”
Charlie woke up from her dream breathing and sweating seriously. “Mummy.”she called out with tears on her face. Someone went to her and held her hand tight looking at her face”Charlie are you OK. Do you have a dream?”the person asked looking at her face. Charlie saw the image of Rachel asking her this questions. She got up from her laying position and hugged the person. “Am OK but so scared. Please don’t leave. Am so happy you it’s over now”she said crying. Justin was so surprised by this. “Why are you like this Charlie?”he asked as she hugged him crying.
