The Scar: The Kids Are Watching
(episode 8)

Written by Sonia Okehie

Wisdom is profitable to lead and direct. When you are aware and informed about something, it becomes easy for you to handle the situation better. The dream Naya had that night revealed to her the things her mere eyes couldn’t see. At that moment, it’s safe to say that she now had a glimpse and idea of the major reason behind her husband’s devilish character. Never for once did she care to ask her husband’s only surviving grand parent about his upbringing and childhood because if she did, she would have heard one or two things that could have given her a clue of what she was dealing with. It’s quite sad that Naya was comfortable enough to live with a man she barely knew anything about. If only she was a little investigative, she could have been aware of some little secrets Derrick hid from her; secrets like how his parents died.

It would interest you to know that all these while, Naya didn’t really know the true story behind Derrick’s parents death. She knew they were late and also knew that they died in an accident; but what she didn’t really know was how the whole incident went down. The naive lady wasn’t aware that Derrick’s mum killed his dad and was knocked down by a motorcycle on her way to escape the scene. There were so many things untold that Naya wasn’t aware of; little wonder she never saw the subtle handwriting on the wall which screamed “Help Me!”.

Derrick was drowning and needed someone to save him but no one ever saw that he needed help. It takes a discerning spirit to see through someone’s smiles and tell that they are dying within. It takes an awakened mind to detect the hidden messages in a casual sentence or action. It takes an alert spirit to know when there’s more to a person’s actions than what mere eyes believed triggered them to act that way.

There’s more to life than mere eyes can see or touch so it’s always good to ask God for a discerning spirit. It’s a thing of relief to know that Naya was one step close to discovering a lot about her soon-to-be divorced husband. Hopefully, the couple might fix their dying marriage and reunite together again for better this time around. It isn’t certain that Naya would give Derrick a second chance, so all we can do is pray for things to go according to God’s will.

That night was an eye opener for Naya. Due to the numerous questions in her head, she made up her mind to seek for answers sooner and also find out the meaning of the dream she had. The curious lady didn’t want to waste any time in her findings so she decided to visit Derrick’s grand mum the following day.

At close of work the next day, Naya drove down to another part of town to pay Derrick’s grand mum a visit. She hadn’t seen the old woman since after their wedding few months ago so it was such a good reunion.

“My daughter, this one you remembered me today, I hope all is well?” grandma happily said and Naya blushed. “Mama, I am sorry for not checking up on you like I should but it isn’t intentional because I have been tied down with work of late” Naya respectfully explained. They further exchanged pleasantries before finally settling down. Food was offered and they both ate together happily.

After they were done eating, Naya gradually began to unfold why she came visiting. “Mama, I have so much to tell you but don’t know where to start. Firstly, your grandson and I are getting a divorce. I know this is very sudden and unexpected but I have to do it to save my life because Derrick has made my life a living hell since we got married. I love him but can’t continue to live in denial and unhappy. He has done a lot to me that I might not be able to say all to you because of reasons known to me. I wish things were different but they aren’t” Naya soberly said.

When Naya was done talking, tears clouded her eyes and grandma wiped the tears away with her hands. Naya drew closer and gave her a tight hug as she burst out crying. Derrick’s grand mum patted her back and gently whispered “It’s OK my child, I knew it would be hard for him to give love after all that happened to him” grandma revealed.

Immediately Naya heard that, she sat up and urged Derrick’s grand mum to fully explain what happened to him. Naya told her about the dream and begged the old woman to reveal anything that could be wrong with Derrick. After a little moment of silence, the old woman began to narrate everything that happened to Derrick since he was a little boy. She also told Naya how his parents died tragically in one day.

As grandma spoke, Naya held her chest and opened her mouth wide open. Never in a thousand years did she believe that Derrick went through something as tragic as that. Everything now began to make sense to the young lady as to why her husband acted the way he did.

Before Derrick’s grandma was done talking, Naya broke down in tears and cried bitterly. Grandma joined her too in crying because she remembered her daughter ‘Lizzy’. It was such an emotional day for both women but help was now on it’s way for deranged Derrick.

After several hours at grandma’s house, Naya sadly took her leave. They bid each other goodbye as they parted ways. Instead of heading home that evening, Naya changed her destination and headed straight to her matrimonial home to see Derrick. When she arrived, everywhere was dark but she managed to open the back door with her own key.

Immediately Naya entered inside the living room, she caught sight of Derrick lying on the couch with his arms covering his eyes. She was slightly nervous but tried her best to look confident.

Feeling slightly tensed, Naya sat beside Derrick. Before she could voice out his name, he gently said “I know you are here, I felt it when you walked in. Did you come for the divorce papers?”.

At that moment, Naya felt highly emotional and didn’t know how best to express how she felt. She took a deep breath and gently touched his arms. “I am so sorry for everything you had to go through in your lifetime. It breaks my heart to know that I have lived with you for months but couldn’t tell that you were fighting battles that were beyond your power. How could I not know that behind those aggression, was a lonely boy singing ‘Twinkle Little Star’ under the bed crying, while his parents fought. How could I not know that you were struggling to give love because you didn’t have it to give. How could I not see through your battered and shattered soul, even though you never spoke about it. I know I might be too late to change anything that happened in your past but I believe I am not too late to influence and correct your future. Derrick look at me” She gently said and he sat up and looked into her eyes; “You are not the cause of your parents death. I repeat, you are not the cause of what happened to them. Your existence didn’t make your parents fight all the time. It isn’t about you and it was never about you so stop feeling guilty for something you couldn’t control. They were adults and had their misunderstandings which I believe had nothing to do with you. Forgive your past and move on to the beautiful further ahead of you. I love you so much and just want the lovely boy I saw under that bed back as my husband. I believe that kind and happy side of you is in there somewhere’ she soberly said as tears fell off her eyes.

Derrick was mesmerised at that moment and didn’t know what to do. Before he knew it, tears began to fall off his eyes. When Naya saw him crying, she cried even more because she had never seen a tear in her husband’s eyes since she knew him.

With a heavy heart, Derrick showed a rare side of him no-one has ever seen before. He knelt down in front of Naya and soberly said “Please pray for me, I want to be a better person and husband. I want you to go on this healing and deliverance journey with me babe. I want to be a better person and I know I can be a better version of myself. Please Naya, help me!”.

At that moment, Naya felt as though she was dreaming because everything felt too good to be true. She knelt down with Derrick, wiped the tears on his eyes and soberly said “I am with you on this babe!”

Emma's Revenge Written by Wilfred bright

⚔️⚔️ EMMA’S REVENGE ⚔️⚔️

📌📌She want’s to revenge…. He wants to arrest her📌📌

Chapter One
Theme: Revenge in style.

Emma stepped down from her very much expensive McLaren Speedtail, her uncle gifted it to her on her birthday, and he said this exact words to her, “if you’re going to take revenge, then why don’t you do it in style.” He also let her know, that the car would become really handy, when she’s involved in a high speed chase with the police.

She put on her dark sunglasses and stared at the police man infront of her with such displeasure. It’s time to show this fools, how good of an actor you are… She thinks smirking.

“Do you mind telling me, why are refusing me entrance into that house?.” She asked scowling at the police man.

“Ma’am I’m sorry but you can’t come in, we are not allowing anybody in to the house. I’m sure you are citizen of america, which means you should know what is going on.” The police man replied her.

“So are you insinuating that I’m the killer, ans I’m here to kill me Ben. Look, and I don’t care about what is going on, all I want you to do… Is to open the bloody gate for me.” Emma said sternly, glaring holes into the man.

“I’m sorry ma’am, but I can’t let you in.” The man repeated, standing his ground.

“Would you stop apologizing to me and open the damn gate.” She yelled really annoyed, her voice higher than normal.

“Ma’am, please calm down. And don’t make a scene here.” The police man tried to calm her down. If his boss ends up witnessing this, he might end up losing his job.

“I shouldn’t make a scene, is that what you are saying. Okay fine, I will calm down.” She made a show of breathing in and out repeated. Then she takes off jer eyeglass, and looked at the police man with so much discontent. “I am beginning to think, that you don’t know who I am. So I will introduce myself. My name is Sophie Turner, and I’m Mr Ben girlfriend. Ir should I say one of his girlfriend’s. He asked me to come here today, to keep him relaxed, so… Could you let me in, now that you know that.”

The policeman began to wonder why he is so unlucky, to meet a crazed woman on such days. He exhaled heavily, then repeat his usual line, “I’m sorry ma’am, but you can’t go in.”

Emma face palmed her self angrily, “Would you stop apologizing to me. All I want right now from you, is to let me in!” She exclaimed.

“Ma’am, Mr Ben’s life is in danger and we the police are here to safe proctet him and by doing so… we can’t let anyone into the mansion.

“Oh my goodness, this is not happening. Did I ever stop you from doing you job. For f*ck sake Mr Man, why don’t you do your god-damned job and let me in. You can search me if you want, I am unharmed and I don’t have a single weapon with me.” She uttered angrily.

“Ma’am this is an order from above, and I can’t disregard it. Please let me do my job.” The police man was already close to getting down on his knees and beg her to leave. He wasn’t ready to lose his job.

“Oh my gosh, this is so embarrassing. I feel so insulted. Do you know what, I won’t stand here and take this anymore.. I will just have to call me Ben, and have him talk to you.” She huffed, then brought out her phone from her bag and then dialled Mr Ben’s number.

Mr Ben picked on the first ring, “Hello Sophia, where are you? I’ve been waiting for you.” Mr Ben said.

“I am currently standing infront of you gate, and the police men wouldn’t let me in. This is so insulting Ben, I think it would be best if I just turn back around and go back home.”

“No, no. There would be no need for that. I will call them right away, and instructs them to open the gate for you.” Mr Ben said, then hung up.

Emma only had to stand for just a few seconds before, a call came on the police man’s phone. He picked the call, exchange a few words with the caller, and then hung up.

“You’re free to drive in ma’am.” He Said to Emma.

“Next time, I’ll make sure you lose your job, if you ever dare insult me in the way you just did. I’m so sorry ma’am, please forgive me.” The policeman said, even though he knew that, there was absolutely no need for him to apologize, since he did nothing wrong. He was just following protocol.

Emma also knew that the police man, didn’t have a reason to apologize, cause he was never wrong. But of course she had to give them drama, so they won’t suspect her a bit. She wants the police thinking, that she is nothing but a spoilt rich bitch.

She got in her car and then waited for the gates to open before driving into the huge compound.

Once she drove into the compound, she parked her car at the parking lot and then came down. She walked to the mansion, and got inside. A maid informed her thar, Mr bird was currently in his room, waiting for her.

Without wasting much time, Emma walked to Mr Ben’s bedroom. And without knocking, she walked into the room. Mr Ben is a divorcee. His wife had to divorce man due to his cheating lifestyle. And that was why Mr Ben became a really easy target among the list of men she had to kill.

“Here you are, I have missed you so much.” Mr Ben said getting up from the bed, he walked to Emma and wrapped his hands around her, then kissed her on the lips.

Emma felt like vomiting, things she has do for revenge. “I also miss you too my love, I miss you so much.” She said returning his kiss.

“What do you think about, if we hit the bed first and have a little fun.” He said grinning.

Sex sex sex that is the only thing in this man’s head, what a foolish man you are… She thinks.

The idiot thinks that she has been sleeping with him, but what he doesn’t know is that she had particular kind of drugs, that she always have him. Whenever she comes to see him, she would inject the drugs in his water, tea, or anything that has to do with water, that he would drink.

ALSO READ :  Tempted To Fall Episode 2

The drugs would make him really delusional, and makes him see things that aren’t real or true. The drugs would draw him into a world of illusion.

Whenever Mr Ben wakes up the next morning, he would end up thinking that he had the most amazing night ever with Emma, but what he didn’t know was, that it was all an illusion.

“Sure, but why don’t we get you relaxed first. I know that you are going through a lot of emotional rollercoaster right now, and that is why I recommend we drink atleast one glass of wine, and get all relaxed.” She kissed him on the cheeks, then walked to his mini fridge, and takes out a bottle of wine. She also took two wine glasses. Before pouring the wine, she brings out the injection that she had hid in her pant waist band. She empty the injection content on one of the glasses, the one she intended to give to Mr Ben. After that, she filled up the two glasses, held Mr Ben’s own drink in her right hand, and held her own drink in her right.

She hands over the drink to Mr Ben and he wasted no time, in drowning the whole content of the glass. She on the other hand, didn’t drink her wine, instead she excused herself to the toilet.

She stood in the toilet, and then counted up to 5. Once she was done counting, she walked back into the room, and just like she thought, Mr Ben was currently laying on the floor so still… But not dead.

She carried him up and laid him on the bed, happily. What…. what is happening to me. Why can’t I move my legs. What was in that drink you have to me.” Mr Ben asked her horrified, by the present state he’s in. Mr Ben said trying to move his hands and his leg.

“I really didn’t do anything much. Okay… maybe I did, but It wasn’t much really. First of all, I am the killer, the one who wants to take your precious life on the 1st of January. I met you in the club and because of, you are a big time cheater, you ended up carrying me home.” She paused, smiling brightly.

“Breaking news, all the sex we had, were nothing but illusions. I have been giving you drugs that could mess with your mind.” Emma said, clapping her hands excitedly.

“I would also want to you to know, that the medicine I have been giving you to. The drugs, can actually make you go paralyze, in other words immobile.

“I have been giving you the drugs in little dose, so you won’t end up getting paralyzed so quickly. The drugs I poured in your wine and today, I was only to wake up the other drugs, that had woken up.

“So.. this means that you are dead man.” Emma replied him, sitting down on the only couch that is in the room.

” You will pay for this you will…” Mr Williams opened his mouth wide and try talking. He couldn’t anymore he has lost his voice.

“Oops, sorry but I forgot to tell you that the medicine also makes you lose your voice. And so, which means you can shout or do anything. You just have to lay down there and listen to me talk. So I am very sure you must know of a certain Mr and Mrs Davis, the very same couple you connived to kill, all because if they knew a secret they shouldn’t know.” She paused.

“Well… I’m the daughter of those couples, you murdered in cold blood and you will die just the same way you wiped them out of existence.” She smirked at him.

“Well… In the next hour, that medicine would take it’s effect on you. It would start by burning all your intestines, then it would spread like a wild fire through your body and finally, burn your heart. Let’s just say, you will be a dead man in the next one hour. Happy death day, Mr Ben. In your next life, you had better come as a righteous person.” She grinned at him, then picked up her bag, arranged her dress and then left the room.

Emma walked out of the mansion, got into her car and drove out of the compound. She stopped outside the gate, and poked her head out the window of her car, “Next time you insult me again. I will make sure you do not have a job anymore.” She yelled loudly at the police, snickered and then drove off.

“Gosh.. I’m such a good actress.” She said out loud, laughing really hard. At the sane time, pulling of her wig, and the fake face she had on, the lenses and finally the belt. Now, it’s time to plan for her next target.


Oscar stared at the car of the lady that just left. His shaked his head, “Just look at her. Because she now sleeps with rich men, she thinks she had made it. You bitch, my job is freaking ten times better than yours.” He yelled really loudly.

“What’s the point of yelling, she already drove off.” His colleague said.

“I know right. I should have given her a piece of my mind, when I had the chance.” He said.

“Oh wow. You are really funny man. Few minutes ago, you were busy begging her and now… You want to give her a piece of your mind. So funny.” His colleague mocks, Oscar frowned.

“I’m a peaceful man, and that was why I begged her. I didn’t just want trouble.” He said scratching the back of his head, a little bit embarrassed.

“Yeah.. peaceful man indeed.”


Alex knocked on the door of Mr Ben’s room, but no answer. He knocked again and again, but still no answer. He decided to walk into the room, panicked that something must have happened to him.

He rushed into the room with urgency, and calm down a bit, when he saw Mr Ben sleeping peacefully. He was about going out of the room, when he notice that Mr Ben’s face, was a little bit pale. He walked to the side of the bed, and with a beating heart placed his funger, underneath Mr Ben’s nose. He is no longer breathing.

Alex calm his self down, then raised mr ben left hand up, and checked for pulse. He had no pulse!.

“F*ck! Damnit!. She f*cking beat me again. F*ck!.”

Mistake - Written by Wilfred bright


A dream shattered, A dream broken

✍️ Written by Wilfred Bright ✍️

Prologue ✨

Alicia Ray stared at herself in the mirror. Her full body length, displayed in the mirror.

She raised her hands up and touched her face, feeling her face, feeling every single part of it. She couldn’t recognize her face anymore, neither can she recognized her body, she has changed!.

Her face that was once void of any piercing, now has a lot of it. Her face that never held make-up, was now caked in it.

Who is the girl in the mirror?. She asked her self silently. What happened to that cheerful, amazing happy Alicia. What has become of her now?. Why is she so unrecognizable?. She thinks.

She tore the beautiful red gown that she is putting on, into shreds, shouting obscene words at the same time.

She plunged her fingers into her hair, and made a mess of her hair.

She wiped away the make-up on her face, with the back of her palm. She takes out all the nose rings, ear rings, all the rings on her face and throws them to the floor. She was in a hurry to get rid of it, get rid of the unrecognizable girl in the mirror. To everyone out there, she’s a star. A popular figure, but to her, she’s nothing. She’s slowly dying in the inside, why? Because of the fame now eats her up.

She took the water bottle on top of her dresser, and then used it to wash her face. But no matter what she did, that girl she has become just stared back at her. Even if she stood infront of her mirror in just her underwear, that girl still didn’t changed back to her formal self. Eventhough she made a mess of her hair, and got rid of her make-up. That girl still wouldn’t leave.

This is her now! The unrecognizable girl in the mirror, is her!. No matter how many time she wish she could deny it, that girl would always be her. There is no going back to her formal sweet, cheerfully self. The world has changed her!. Fame has changed her.

(Love filled with Bitterness)

✍️ Episode Twenty✍️

🌺 Daniella pov🌺

I was coming out of the class after having some chat with Amy at the cafeteria because she seems to be broken and I didn’t even realize she had feelings for Bryan and it this strong.

I made up some lies when she asks about Martha even though I know she must probably be with Bryan. I don’t know what really happened but Jabson refuse to tell me and that lead to a little fight between us too.

“Isn’t that Martha?” Why is she with John?. Hope it not what I’m thinking, I quickly approach them and gave John a glare before dragging Martha away from him.

“Let go off me Daniella”she said and I kept dragged her till we reach the empty classrooms and I lock the door.

“What the hell is happening”I questioned.
“You should tell me why you bring me here when I was in the middle of an important something”She yelled at me and I was surprised.

“Martha? John is the importance thing you are talking about?”
“Doesn’t it worth it?”
“What have gotten into you”I asks.
“Maybe you should direct that to your friend”She sounded so rude to me.

“My friend aren’t we friends too?”I asks.
“I have a class”She said and I scoff.
“This is the same class you are having now tell me what happening and what were you discussing with John”I asks.

.”And why should I tell you?”she asks me.
“Even if you are Bryan have a little misunderstanding shouldn’t you be soughting it out instead of going to that bastard”I yelled.

“Why do everyone hate him?”
“You really want to know?”I asks.
“There is a party tonight at my house and John will be there come over with Bryan”
“No”she rejected.

“I don’t want to have anything to do with him”she said.
“Why for goodness sake”
“he tried to rape me are you satisfied”she fired at me.

“Rape? I thought you guys are married?”
“Okay fine !! this is the truth we are married but aren’t together because we hate each other guys and yesterday night he tried to rape me when I wanted to treat his wounds”

“What wound?”I asks in surprise.
“He was attacked by an hoodlums last night”she replied and I gasped.
“His he okay”I asks and she shot at me making me hold back my words.

“I hope you understand and stop all this drama because John is only been nice to me”she said.
“John is……”I kept quiet and stare at her for a while.

“Martha are you that blind?”I asks.
“I can see Clearly and you are putting on white”She said and I sigh deeply.
“He loves you and he just doesn’t want to hurt you because of his situation that he doesn’t realize I know a long time ago though”

“What do you mean”
“I think this is right time he need you or you might lose him forever but I still need some investigation I have a feeling John is behind is attack”
“There you go again”She clap her hand together.

“Martha I’m been serious, he need you now but why did he react like that because he already stop_OMG”I gasped.

“Who even tell you I was attacked?”He asks.
“Matha”I replied honestly and he slum on the bench back.
“What did she say?”he asks.
