Tamar-Episode 25



Tamar-Episode 25

©Amah's Heart

I sneezed out loud and screamed Jesus before opening my eyes, at first everywhere was so blurred, I blinked repeatedly as I try to see clearly and to know where exactly I was, I almost thought I was dead because of my encounter with him, he has being on my side for a while and has helped me to remain calm, he kept saying this to me as if he was trying to keep it fresh in my heart
“I am here with you, now and forever, nothing and no one can snatch you away from my hands because you are strongly secured, for you did not deny me before men I will not deny you before my father in heaven, I am here with you my child, always. is time to return, go and make disciples of all nation…your work is not done yet…remember, I am with you always…always my child.
“it was Jesus, oh Jesus… it was him, his face has shone so bright that I have to shade the brightness with my hands to see him, he has being beside me all this while and his presence has being so warm and loving, that I have wished I will remain there with him.
“Father, come…quick, father hurry, she has awaken…
I watch as a man try to check me through, my body was stiff, my face felt like it was sewed together, my hand and thigh felt the same, I was finding it hard to move my hands and my legs, couldn’t feel some part of my body, must part of my body feels numb, it was as if they are not mine anymore, my eyes was wide open as I stare at the strange faces bent over me…
“Where…where I am…where is this place…
“I am a physician and here is my son, he is practicing to be a renowned physician just like me, you are in my place, my name is Cozam and my son is Tedran. You have being in a comma for long, counting by the weeks it will be nine and half weeks, that’s almost three months in coma, you were sent to mandioh’s lion’s den.. Do you remember, but you were lucky to have made it alive, whatever god you serve must have defended you and helped you through, it surprising how you are still alive but we are happy you made it. You serve a true God, because even I, being a physician can’t explain the logic, You are very safe here, because we live at the far end of the fourth district, they all thought you are already dead, many people died that day, there was a young man that got enraged on hearing that you were sent to Mandion’s den to die, on getting there he pushed down one woman that has planned it all with Mandioh, Mandioh was eaten by his own lion, the crazy young man was called Vim, he is the son of the second prime ruler, people fear him greatly, I have to tell him that you are already dead because you look lifeless, and your wounds were life threatening, we thought you will never make it, we came to buy some medical things for our patients over here and when we hard that Mandioh’s has opened up his lion’s den and people were tripping in to watch, it was a good time, and I, having being trying to teach my son somethings in a dead human body, so we watch from afar as the lions couldn’t take a bite off you, it was as if your body was poisonous to them and that of your second too, all they did was to just dug their long fangs into you and left you, you lost so much blood already before lord Vim asked if there was any physician around and I came out with my son, so when you were brought up we thought it was useless working on you because you were not moving again and so we told him you were gone, we told him that you are dead and that news enraged him the more and he began to shoot, even the lions have their own share of the gun shot, I guess they all died later, we have to get an order to go and dispose you and the second lady at the burial ground but you suddenly called out somebody’s name along the way, inside the chariot and that was how we got to know that you are alive, and since we brought you down here you have being unconscious, you have being in coma, I’m glad you are up, so you must have noticed how stiff your body is, well, is due to being in one place without movement for so long, now we have to help you move your body, you have stiches all over your thigh, your face and also some other part of your body which is not totally healed, we have to loosened the thread maybe tomorrow so that you will be able to move around gently until you can feel your legs and your whole body began to corporate, it will take little time, and you will make use of a walking stick but with a constant practice you will be fine.
“wher…what of Shamara…what happened to her…I mean my second..
“she is right there, still not awake, but she will live, if you can gently turn your face to your right side you will see her, her wounds were not as much as yours, you sustained a heavy injury, she lost lots of blood and she is very weak, unlike you, your muscles are strong and you respond well to treatment, you look fragile yet you are very strong, my lady, I’m glad you made it but this has to be between us, because already everyone thinks you are dead and that young man has already believed so, it will be safe for you to stay here and secondly the wound on your cheek will take time to heal up, and when it finally healed you will be left with a deep scar on your face, your thigh and also your arm will have a scar, which is not even important, the most important thing is that you are alive and you will live here with us, we will teach you medicine and you may eventually become a physician too if you so desired so. We have enough rooms for you and your second.
I started practicing again on how to move my legs and arm and my whole body as the weeks follows suit, I was afraid to look at the mirror because of the deep wound on my cheek, that was gradually forming a scar already, within weeks, I can stand and move around with the help of Tedran and a walking stick, the physician son Tedran, who was almost same age with Vim, he was gentle and kind as he assist me in getting better everyday,
Tedran was a fine young man, younger than Vim, I guess, he was good looking too and was also taller than his father, he was always filled with smile, and I have to ask him one day as he massage my limp legs after being instructed by his father to do so.
“You are always wearing a smile, that’s good…I admire that about you, did your father also told you is part of your job description… being a physician…
“hahahaha, smiling has become part of me, and yes, father told me to always smile especially when I’m attending to patients, it helps them to ease up. So ever since I was young, father has inbuilt it in me, he has being building me up to become as good as he is and I tried not to fail him, I was little when mother died and father has never remarried since then, he raised me up and it has being two of us ever since…and very soon I will be like father, already I know everything but I don’t want to be ahead of myself, I always want to watch father attend to patients and I only do the ones he instruct me to do, he sometimes he send me out to go and attend to patients on my own and I try not to disappoint him… someday I will get a wife and it will not just be me and father anymore, and when children start coming the house will be lively like I have always wanted that, I like having people around here.
I listened to Tedran talk and I tried to smile despite the wound stiches that hurts anytime I forcefully move a muscle on my face.
Shamara woke up after a week, and I was at her bedside with lord Cozam and his son Tedran, they began to attend to her, as Shamara try to understand what was happening around her and where she was, I held her hand as she turned to look at me
“Where…is this place, is this heaven…are we dead, is this heaven or hell…
“we are both alive, we made it Shamara, God saved us, this is planet earth, is neither heaven or hell, and if there’s anywhere we have to be outside this earth then is heaven and not hell, I’m so proud of you..
“oh…serious, so we are alive, I thought…I thought the lion ate us, oh mine…the lions….i remember… your God is real, you said he was going to come and save us and he did… look at the wound on your face, it must have being so painful, I’m deeply sorry, I can’t even remember what happened after… after you asked me to pretend to be dead and I did, I guess I passed out…who are all this people…
“Our God is real, he has never failed and he will never fail, we both lost so much blood, and the shock too kept us in coma, is a good thing to have you here, this is lord Cozam and his son Tedran, they are both physicians, they saved us… and nursed us back, without a shelling to their pocket, they are good people and I’m glad God used them for us…
Shamara muttered a thank you to lord Cozam and his son Tedran and they greeted her with a smile.
The week came and go as we try to heal up, it became so fun being with the physicians, as I try to tell them about Christ, and they were keen to listen after seeing what happened at the lion’s den and being alive again which was beyond their understanding, they listened, him and his son and they eventually believed, as I feed them with the word everyday, Shamara was not left out.
We assisted with the little that we can do around the house, more week’s turns into months and then it became a year. We were totally fine. I can walk perfectly well on my own without any help, same with Shamara, although the scars are all there but it gives me no trouble.
I planned to return to visit lord Reese’s family, there were a lot of people to visit, Abel, my dearest Abel, Adolfo and Eura, Zity and Chakan, they should have their little one by now, Rhonda and her children, the merchant, and how he took the news of his wife’s death, then Vim, I wonder how he is doing after all that happened.
It was time for me to visit them all, I will go as a physician with Tedran, and will wear a cover up, from head down, only my eyes will be seen, I will not reveal my identity to them immediately until I observe the environment, and I plead with God to lead me as always.
I won’t be going as Tamar, I will let them believe me to be a stranger or a physician’s daughter, i will change my name to Leah.
i’m going over with a different identity and a different name.
