Story: “Even The Rich Also Cry” (Episode 24)

    Doyin: “now that we are all gathered, I will like you all to listen to a story I have to tell. I was in Britain, just out of prison when I heard that my father was dead. I came down with the little money I had; Her Majesty’s government were happy to see me leave. I entered Nigeria, and attended a burial where no one knew who I was. It was so funny. My father it seems had given me up for dead. The curious part of my tale is that, during this burial, the people my father worked for were not present. In fact, according to reports, they had travelled out of the country, almost immediately after my father’s death. This made me curious, so I investigated and I found out that because of your itch for penis, you sent my father on an errand that he was too old to carry out. You sent him to his death and you did not mourn him.” he said, his eyes alight with an inner fire. He was pointing at Florence.

    Florence: “I sent your father on errand that killed him? I have never met you or your so called father in my life, young man.” She said; her eyes wide with surprise.

    Major Festus: “you have darling. His father is Papa D. Then you must be that Doyin. I knew there was something about you that was familiar.” He said softly.

    Florence: “what are you talking about? Papa D’s child died several years ago.” She said loudly.

    Doyin laughed: “I didn’t die. I was imprisoned in the States for operating medicine without a license.” He replied, defensively.

    Florence: “I am sorry about your father’s death. I wanted to see a man that would give me information to set me free from this man. I didn’t know it would end like that. I lost a child too that day.” she said sadly.

    Major Festus: “actually Papa D never had a son. He was impotent.” He said softly, his head staring on the ground.

    Florence: “how would you know? You only came when he was already an old man.”

    Major Festus: “before your father died, he told me a tale which I promised never to reveal to you but it seems I have to break that promise to keep you safe.” He said to Florence.

    Doyin: “what are you talking about? I am not Papa D’s son? Then whose son am i?” he asked hotly.

    Major Festus ignored him and looked at Desmond who had moaned as if in pain.

    Major Festus: “can you at least loosen his bonds? He is a kid, where is he going to run to?” he asked.

    Doyin: “answer my question or I will put a bullet through his eye.” He replied, walking to Desmond and placing his gun on his head.

    Major Festus: “I don’t know who your father is but I know your mother.” He said.

    Doyin put off the gun safety and pressed the gun into Desmond’s eye. Desmond moaned in fear, sweat dripping from his face.

    Major Festus: “okay…okay… Florence you remember that story you always tell of you inviting several men into the house when your parents travelled and had sex with all of them?” he asked.

    Florence: “yes…what happened? It is the truth. It really did happen. I had to be admitted in the hospital.” She said, staring at him suspiciously.

    Major Festus: “yes, you had sex with several men but they were not men you invited, they were robbers. Those men raped you, Florence.” He said softly.

    Florence: “that’s a lie. You were not even there.” She replied, harshly.

    Doyin: “I will shoot somebody here o! What has her rape or gangbang got to do with who my father is?” he yelled.

    Major Festus: “you are the product of that rape. Florence is your mother.” He said.

    Florence: “Jesus! No, that is a lie.” She screamed, holding her head.

    Doyin stood still staring at Major Festus. The anger had drained from his eyes instead he was looking at Festus curiously.

    Doyin: “what are you trying to do?” he asked, suspiciously.

    Major Festus: “I am trying to give you what you all wanted. Florence, your father refused to take you to a psychiatrist, because, according to him, he didn’t want you to remember such a terrible thing. You see, you had passed out by the time, the men were done. When you woke up at the hospital, your father gave you that story of your boyfriends instead. He scolded you then sent you abroad. When you gave birth, the child was brought back to Nigeria and given to Papa D. He made me promise to keep you safe and make sure you get everything you need.” He said then he sighed; “I was supposed to bring you into the family and make you heir to your grandfather’s wealth but you were nowhere to be found.” He added, turning to Doyin.

    Florence: “they told me the baby died. The nurse, Festus, she said she was sorry that the baby had died.” she said, turning tear filled eyes on Major Festus.

    Doyin’s gun hand hung limply by his side; his shoulder sagging, under the weight of what he had just heard.

    Major Festus: “Only Papa D and his wife, besides your grandfather, knew your true identity.” He said.

    Florence let out an ear-splitting scream, Major Festus moved towards her, his eyes on Doyin, but the man was no longer looking at them.

    Florence let out another scream as Major Festus held her and started rocking her. She screamed the third time and burst into tears…….
