Through The Shadow 3 - Episode 18
Theme: The Fiery Boss Lady
Written by Angel Louis


       The crowd began to part way for someone to pass as he pulled along a little girl.

Louisa's eyes widened. She just can't believe what she's seeing...

"Seon??? Ciara???" 

Mrs Zilia's eyes almost popped out it's socket the moment she sighted seon and Ciara.

Seon walked to the podium.. standing before Louisa as her eyes welled up in tears.he gave her a warm smile...
 A smile she has Missed so much
A smile she thought she'd never see again...

Her seon is here.... And he didn't come alone... He's here with her Ciara..

Little Ciara without wasting time jumped on Louisa in excitement... She has so much missed her savior... Her sister, her mother and her friend... All in Louisa..

Bayley ran over to their gathering and carried Ciara too. Placing lots of kisses on her face.

Seon later on returned his gaze to Louisa who couldn't take her eyes off him. Louisa still can't believe seon is here.

Seon walked over to the pulpit and glared hard at the crowd. He drew his mouth closer to the microphone and sighed out in defeat.

"You all are here to crucify the woman standing before you. Cause you heard a motherfvcking story saying she Murdered Jonathan. You've refused toet her explain her side of the story and yet, you speak of justice.... What's the justice in that?" He paused. His countenance showing how angry he is.

"Now you all are gonna shut the Fvck up while she tells her story!" He announced, stepping aside for Louisa to take over.

"It'll be alright Louisa. Just spill out everything" he urged with a whisper as everyone stared eagerly at them.

Louisa nodded, took a long deep breath as she walked over to the pulpit...

She stared nervously at everyone and prays whatever she say helps her out.

"I was just fifteen when Jonathan started living with us .. I swear to every one here that Jonathan was never good to me ...."
She paused her speech when she began hearing mumblings amongst the crowd.

She turned her teary eyes to seon who in turn smiled and nudged her to continue.

"... He forced me into smoking and drinking then he'd beat me up if I refuse his offer and later on threaten against telling his wife"

She sniffled as the crowd gasped to what she just said.

"...three months after My aunt's death,.... He he ...." Tears slide down her puffy cheeks..

"He raped me" she trailed off with a cold look .. as she remembered that ugly night..

"O'my God!!!" The crowd gasped out... Shaking their head in disbelief..

And then .... Louisa went on narrating everything that happened to the hearing of everybody.... How she got brutally raped by him and his three friends..

She hid nothing from their hearing... Spilling everything out in hot tears....

".....so if you're all gonna punish me for my action... Please do. I did whatever I did for my safety, for my own defense. I had nobody to turn to. No one to share my pains with... I knew nobody would believe me 
So I had to take  actions into my hands .. which I now know is wrong .
But someone as inhumane and cold as Jonathan never deserved to be a man living amongst men.. cause he was nothing but a beast! A monster that ruined my life ."

Louisa paused .. releasing her heavy breath. As she couldn't help but cry uncontrollably to her horrid past.

Seon held her into his arms.
"It's okay sweetie. Everything is okay. You'll be fine" he muttered pecking her on her hair.

She has said Enough already... He doesn't want her to continue or she'd break down.. he has to take over from here.

"Honey" he drawled. Louisa looked up at him...
"Step Aside please. Let me address them myself. You are too broken to go any further" 
Louisa nodded and did as he instructed.

Seon smiled at her before turning his gaze over to the crowd. 
He hopes they win this case...

"How would you feel if you got to know that your daughter which you left in the care of your brother was going through hell? 
How would you react when you realize that she' has forcefully become a s£x you to someone you trusted so much ?

How would you all feel huh???

And just one day she finally decided to react by fighting for her right,... Poisoning your brother just to break free from his wickedness.. will you then call her a cold-blooded-murderer???" 

He asked. His eyes darting everywhere as be wanted for their response...

"I guess not" he added. Seeing how queit they were.

"Louisa Sullivan as an orphan was abused/molested by Jonathan countless of times... The same man y'all claim to be good... I stand here not to condemn anyone, but to speak the truth"

The crowd increased their mumblings...
And then, bayley took over..

"I'm a witness! I'm a living witness.. most of you wonder why Louisa and I are so close. I'll tell you the reason.. 
I understand her Feelings. I Know what she went through in Jonathan's hands .. I witnessed the rape scene.. I saw from where Louisa had hid me that unfaithful afternoon how Jonathan and his friends mercilessly raped her.. 
Jonathan was never a good man...
He was a beast"

Bayley puased, wiping her eyelids with a kerchief.

"Believe me when I say Louisa is a good person.. she has a good heart. Jonathan turned her into whatever she is today. She only had to  put on a strong shield so she won't pass through such again..

I'm a living witness to her abuse. Louisa Sullivan will continue to be my best friend till death. And guess what, if you're gonna crucify her, you'll have to crucify me alongside..." Bayley announced. Staring deeply at her bosom  
Friend who silently wept.

"Me too!" Ciara added with her sweet little voice.

Mrs Zilia arched her brow in a questioning way. As Ciara gestured seon to Carry her up so she'd attain the height of the microphone.

"I am Ciara cole... And standing here with me is my guardian angel Louisa Sullivan. Louisa isn't evil' as you guys claim. There was a time I used to be scared of her cause I thought she'd eat me ..."

Ciara stated causing most of them to giggle, while some wiped off their teary eyes.

"I remember clearly the night Louisa saved me from a rapist.
She dealt mercilessly with him that I thought he'd never live to see another day. She saved me cause she didn't want what Happened to her to repeat itself on me... She has a golden heart... 

She saved my life and took care of me even without knowing who I was... I schooled because of her...

Now tell me, will a monster do any of that??"

"Noo" they shook their heads.

 Then she continued...
"One thing I've learnt in my life is never judge a person so quick with just the appearance.. cause there's more to it inside than what you can see..

I love Louisa so much.. she's she mother I lost, the sister I never had, the friend I won't ever let go.
So if you want to crucify her,  y'all crucify me too" 
Ciara blurted out within soft sobs.
She came down and hugged Louisa again.. Louisa carried her into her arms and cried alongside..

The crowd was so calm and sober now. Ciara's words really touched them..

"If it was to be my daughter that passed through all that, I won't call her a murderer" a fellow shouted from the back causing most to nod.

"Even if my child doesn't hurt the man, I'll make sure I kill him myself" Another added.

"I would chop off his eyes and hold it as a medal" another added...

Seon felt a relief inside of him... They ate seeing things clearly for theirselves.

"So what do you all say then, do you still want the arrest of Louisa Sullivan??"

They suddenly became silent mumbling indistinctly to one another...

Mrs Zilia gave out a mockery smile, seon thinks he can buy them over with a c0ck and bull story😂...
They'll see about that.

Seon felt worried... No one gave a reply.. they only mumbled and he doesn't know if they still want justice or ...

"Nooooo!!!!!" They all chorused..

"What????" Mrs Zilia gasped in shock...

"Let her go!" They all requested...
Louisa tilted her head to their request. What? Are they for real .. please this shouldn't be a dream...

"We are sorry Louisa... For judging you the wrong way. We never knew what you went through all those years" a lady spoke out to their hearing.

Seon felt so happy... This is so good! He thought within.

"Yes forgive us, we never should have been judgemental" another pleaded.

Mrs Schwezilia stood there as she listened to their pleas one after the other..
What the heck?
This was never her plan... If they finally reconcile with the people... That means she's finished cause Louisa and Ciara will surely expose her.

"No way" she breath hard .. bringing out her phone as she dialed her daughter's number.

"How the hell did seon and Ciara get here? What happened to your wedding?"

"I don't know mom... So they are there? I've been searching all over for those two" Andrea cried.

"Stop quibbling and hurry down here .. take a flight... And come here right away"

Mrs Schwezilia demanded before hanging up.
