Complement of the season greetings from All Naija Entertainment. Read here


“Something happened to Hannah” Sarah confessed. My heart almost gave out. Goose bumps appeared on my skin, I have never been this scared of anything before. “What happened?” I asked nervously
“While I was in the room with Ayo, he got a call from Samuel. He said they took Hannah to the hospital, he didn’t tell me why. When I insisted on knowing, Ayo excused himself and walked out of the room. He didn’t return until I decided to leave.”
“Which hospital?” I enquired
“I don’t know” “And you left her? ” Sarah looked at me without saying a word, tears flowed freely from her eyes. The hatred I felt for her increased. I felt like choking her to death. But then we had to find Ruth. I dragged her up and ordered her to follow me. “Where are we going”? “To find Ruth of course.”
She kept quiet and followed me sheepishly. It was almost time for extra lessons to begin, but I didn’t care about that. I just had to find Hannah.
We changed our clothes at the gate house, and boarded a taxi heading towards the hotel. I hoped anyone there would have a clue to where Hannah was taken. I couldn’t help but wonder what could have happened to her, she did not look sick when we left school together this morning. She was quite active and full of life. I have never known her to have any health challenges either. I stared out of the taxi window, playing up a lot of scenarios in my mind. I was convinced that those boys had a hand in whatever happened to Hannah.
The taxi pulled up in front of the hotel, we handed the driver his money and went in. I recognized one of the receptionist, she was
there when we came earlier. I walked up to her, and asked if she knew about a girl who was rushed to a hospital from the hotel earlier. Unfortunately, she had no idea. She only gave us a list of hospitals around the hotel, they were five in number including a psychiatric hospital.
We hurried out of the hotel into the street, hoping to move from hospital to hospital in search of my friend Hannah. I prayed silently that nothing bad happens to her. The first hospital was just a few meters away from the hotel. Sarah and I strolled along. She walked rather sluggishly behind me,
almost as if she was scared of finding Hannah. No doubt, she already knew how much I hated her at this point.
As we walked by, a lot of thoughts gathered in my head. I was preoccupied with the thought of what could have happened to Hannah, but on the other hand I couldn’t keep my mind off my broken relationship with Matthew. I wondered if he would ever forgive me. The identity of the girl in the room also troubled me. For someone who claimed to love me and he has within few minutes gotten a new girl to himself. Is this what love is all about?

Matthew moved on really fast. Images from the past few hours continuously flooded my mind. I wondered if Matthew actually
knew I was in that hotel, at the same time I cursed myself for not leaving sooner, and not seeing the similarity between Folorunsho and Matthew. I would have saved myself a lot of heartache.
At that point, I realized that I knew very little about those boys at the hotel. I slowed down a little, to allow Sarah catch up with me. I wanted to satisfy my curiosity. “Did you know that Folorunsho was Matthew’s cousin? “I asked, facing Sarah.
“No” she replied, shrugging her shoulder unconvincingly. she was obviously lying I could tell. But I did not border to press further, because it would make no difference at this point. “How did you know Ayo?, and what arrangements did you have with him? “I queried further. “We were friends before he traveled to Canada. This morning, he called to inform me that he was around. He wanted some girls
to spend time with himself and his friends. So I collected sixty thousand naira from him to ‘arrange’ two girls. I didn’t know it would be like this I swear” I looked at her with disgust written all-over my face. She faced down, probably embarrassed over her actions. I turned away and headed into the hospital complex. We walked straight to the reception, to meet an angry-looking girl in her early twenties. “Good afternoon” we greeted simultaneously. “How may I help you? ” she asked, without replying our greeting. ‘We are looking for a patient who might have been brought here today, her name is Hannah.” She made several clicks on her mouse before informing us that they had no patient with that name. I felt a little more disappointed and worried.
We left for the next hospital, which was just a few minutes away. We searched helplessly for Hannah, until there was just one hospital left. I took out the list of hospitals the hotel receptionist gave us, and glanced through it. I was greatly shocked when I realised that the last hospital is a psychiatric hospital. Could Hannah have gone mad? I wondered. I turned toward Sarah and announced to her that we would be checking a
psychiatric hospital next.
