????THE POOR GIRL ????
Melody couldn’t help than to cry seeing his father lying lifeless on the ground without any sign of survival.
She didn’t even have the idea that her mother too is in a more complicated situation than his father.
The worst part of it was that Mr Armstrong was still breathing but none dare to rush him to the hospital because they knew that even if they take him to the hospital that he won’t have the bills to settle.
Nobody wanted to help them which made Melody cried the more for help but none seems to come.
Mr Armstrong heard the news of his wife being involved in an accident, so he rushed out of the house to go see his wife not knowing that the worst is awaiting him too on the road as he got involved also in a fatal car accident.
Mr Patrick could be seen driving along the lonely way so speedly as if he is playing the game called fast and furious.
He stopped at a huge compound that has a big fence on it with electric wires that prevents thief’s from entering the house.
He press the car horn and immediately the gate was roll open, he drove in park the car in the car garage and move inside faster as someone who is being chased by a troop of army or someone who is under a demonic spell.
His house was well built with a small garden inside and everything in it smell money which is to say that Mr Patrick has what is called money.
He was so restless immediately he entered his house, he pace up and down with the car key making noise in his hands at the same time.
“What a bad day for me. how could this possibly happen?
“I knock down a lady on my way back and I ran and left without taking her to the hospital, and the worst of it on my way of running, I also knock down an old man too and still run away? Mr Patrick complained bitterly.
“that’s so bad of me, what if they die how will their kids feel?
“No, I have to start searching for them now before the worst happen “he concluded and just then Amanda emerged from her room wearing a mini skirt that stopped below her thighs which got her body exposed but she didn’t care.
“Dad, good afternoon ”
“Yes, my angel good afternoon. how was school today?
“Fine dad. I overheard you talking so I decided to come and check who you are talking to dad ”
“It’s fine dear, what about your mom is she not back yet?
“Okay, I’m going out now and I will be back soon.
“Bye bye dad”
Mr Patrick kissed her daughter on the forehead and head out of the house praying that he found the two people his car had knocked down earlier.
It’s obvious that it’s Mr Patrick car which is Amanda father that knocked down Melody both parents and he ran away leaving them to their own fate after the incident.
#5 hours later
Mr Armstrong was already admitted in a close hospital with the help of a closed friend and that was when the news got to Melody that her mother too was also involved in an accident which was the reason her father on his way to check on her got involved too.
It was a very sad and tragic day for melody for her both parents to get involved in a car accident, and she had no option than to pray that their suffering end soon.
Melody didn’t go to school but she took on her mother’s business of selling orange on the streets.
She was visibly seen with a tray of ripe orange on her head shouting for people to buy from her under the hot sun of the day.
Back to golden gates high school Mrs Hannah class was so boring to her as she looked around only to discover that melody who always makes her class interesting was not in school.
She wondered what could have made her stay back from school, she even wanted to visit her to check what’s wrong but the worst part of it is that she doesn’t fully know her talkless of their address.
Henry too was confused because Melody always comes first to school but it is almost #11:30am and she’s nowhere to be found.
Amanda couldn’t help but to smile that the bitch is not in the school.
She was sitting with her gossip team breaking people with their mouth.
“Where’s that bitch that said nonsense yesterday ?Praise asked
“Who are you asking? who knows whether her poverty has killed her through hunger during the night? Amanda mocked and all of them end up laughing and Henry who was sitting far away knew that they were gossiping about Melody.
He shook his head pitifully and continue with what he was doing praying that all goes well with Melody.
Two days has already gone still her parents condition wasn’t a pleasant one which got her so worried and she has stayed away from school for the past two days hawking on the streets to take the responsibility of her mother to provide a little meal for her both parents in the hospital.
She was selling on the streets when a car drive past her and then reversed back to her and wind down the glass.
Melody was just the carbon copy of her mom, everything about her was Mrs Armstrong.
The car wind down the window and it was Mr Patrick who stopped by.
“Good afternoon sir, please how much do you want to buy orange? Melody asked taking the tray down.
“Sorry dear I don’t want to buy anything ” Mr Patrick said and the word was hurtful to her as she picked her tray to leave.
“Young girl, where’s the owner of this orange you are selling? Mr Patrick asked this making her to stop and looked back at him.
“You mean my mom? she asked
“She’s your mom?
“Where is she? Mr Patrick asked and the question alone had the answer to itself as fresh tears drop from melody eyes and Mr Patrick knows that melody is the daughter of the woman she knocked down.
“My mom had an accident and she’s in a critical condition struggling for her life in the hospital “she said cleaning the tears from her eyes and Mr Patrick prayers has finally been answered because he has been searching for that lady she knocked down.
“Take me there”Mr Patrick said and melody didn’t think twice than to jump into the car and they zoom off to the hospital.
