Flashback☀️

Three months after the incident with Jason...I fell sick, I was rushed to the hospital and series of tests were carried out..in the end I was confirmed pregnant, Dad was so disappointed in me, he asked for the name of the father.. but I didn't tell him, because I was afraid of what he might do to Jason or his dad.. when he saw that I wasn't ready to talk, he sent me abroad with my Nani...I gave birth to a beautiful girl..and named her Mia.. I loved her so much, and was ready to sacrifice anything for her.. I wanted to be a good mother.. I wanted to show her the love. I didn't get from my mother.... And then one night, everything changed... I was reading a bed time story to my two years old daughter.. when I heard someone knocking on the door .. I walked out of the room, leaving Mia and my Nani alone...I opened the door to see scary faces looking at me..they were three of them.. huge and tall with guns in their hands.. they forced their way in and started looking for something or someone..I was angry, hey.. what do you guys think you are doing huh? What are you doing in my house.. I asked but they just continued with what they were doing.. you know what.. am gonna call the police right now.. I said boldly and walked to were my phone was.. where's he? One of them asked angrily... Who? I asked back, oh please am not here games, let's just get this over with... Another one said..and pointed a gun at me, I froze at the sight of the gun.. now are you ready to talk? He asked.. I don't know what you are talking about.. I replied with a shaky voice.. he sighed, it's such a waste you're gonna die pretty.. he said.. baam! I fell to the floor with my hand on my stomach.. they walked into the rooms and came out without Mia or Nani.. he's not here.. the third one said.. I couldn't hear anything anymore and slowly my eyes closed..
I woke up and saw myself in the hospital.. Dad was sitting beside me.. Dad.. I called faintly.. Lara thank Goodness you're awake, am coming.. let me call the doctor.. he said and turned to leave... Dad..were is Mia and Nani, I asked him quietly.. he turned slowly and sat down on the bed.. Omolara, you have to be strong.. we didn't see them or their bodies.. no.. they have to be alive, No! Dad you have to find my daughter... Mia isn't dead, please ... Were is my daughter..I want to see Mia... The doctor comes and injects me with some sedative and I slept off..

So how did she recognize me..? I asked referring to Mia.. I showed her your pictures.. she replied, can you please call her.. I asked quietly.. Mia dear, your mummy wants to talk to you.. the child turns and playfully comes to our table.. yes mummy she said smiling.. I knelt down in front of her and held her face with my hands, the last time I held her, she was two years old . And now she's four...
