Echoes of Loneliness
Part 41 – Connection
Truly speaking, Joseph and Rita should wake up. Keith will turn Wame against us, whether Wame remembers him or not. He’s very smart. How else did he get to know that I was the one who attacked his wife? He’s very smart and it looks like he believes in revenge. I know that he was the one who attacked my wife.
Rita and I went to Wame’s bedroom. I want to distract Wame so that Rita can get hold of her bracelet.
We knocked on the door and she let us in.
Wame: What’s up?
Me: We just came to check up on you
Rita: Yes, dear
Wame: I don’t get it
Me: How’s you and Alex?
Wame: I updated you about everything yesterday so why are you asking me about Alex again?
Me: Uhm… I…
Rita: Where’s Warona?
Wame: She’ll be right here in a minute. She went to the bathroom. Why?
Rita: I am just asking
Me: Your bracelet is really lovely
Me: You never take it off, why?
Wame: It’s personal
Me: I see
Wame: It’s late, I want to sleep
Rita: But it’s only 21:30, you never sleep early
Wame: I am tired
Warona walked out of the bathroom.
Warona: Sister, why are they here?
Wame: I don’t know. They are both acting strange
Okay, Rita and I should leave before Wame suspect us.
Warona: They should leave, I want to sleep
Me: Okay, we are leaving. We’ll see you tomorrow, Wame
Wame: Okay, cool
Rita: Are you meeting with Alex tomorrow?
Rita: Why not?
Wame: He’ll be very busy tomorrow
Rita: Okay then. What about Keith?
Wame: Do you want me to meet with Keith?
Rita: Because he’s Alex’s brother
Wame: So what?
Rita: He’s also not trusted. You know that they are working together
Wame: If you want Keith to suspect me then it’s fine, I’ll meet with him anytime you want
Me: No, that’s not a good idea. We don’t want him to suspect you
Warona: Sister, who’s Keith and Alex? Are they…
Wame: Keep quiet, Warona
Wame: Get in bed now
Me: Rita, let’s go
Rita: But the bracelet
I almost forgot how foolish Rita can be.
Wame: What bracelet?
Me: Uhm… Rita, let’s go
Warona: Does Rita want to steal my sister’s bracelet? Mhmm, she’s a thief
Wame: Warona, I told you to keep quiet
Warona: Sorry, sister but please take care of your bracelet
Rita: No Warona my dear, I don’t want to steal your sister’s bracelet. I just want to know where she got it. It’s beautiful so I also want to have the same one
Wame: Warona, I told you to keep quiet
Warona: But it’s true, she’s a witch. Everyone…
Warona: (Cries) TELL HER TO GO, I DON’T LIKE HER. TELL HER TO GO OR ELSE I’LL GO AND YOU WON’T BE MY SISTER ANYMORE!!!
Rita: But baby…
Warona: I AM NOT YOUR BABY, JUST GO, YOU WITCH, GOOOO!!!
Me: Let’s go, Rita
Isn’t Warona just four years old? Where did she get such negativity? Wow, she’s a bomb just waiting to explode. Actually she just exploded on Rita and Wame. Where did she get the idea to threaten her sister? Wow, I am still shocked.
I locked the door and looked at Warona. I just started crying. How dare she threaten me?
“TELL HER TO GO, I DON’T LIKE HER. TELL HER TO GO OR ELSE I’LL GO AND YOU WON’T BE MY SISTER ANYMORE!!!” – How can a four year old say this to me? Obviously this place is not good for her. The things she say are so hurtful. How dare she threaten me? Is she even four years old? She’s very bad.
She came closer to me and wiped off her tears.
Warona: Wow sister, I can’t believe that you are crying. I haven’t seen you cry in my life
Warona: It’s true
Me: Leave me alone. I am not crying
Warona: You are crying
Me: You hurt me, Warona so leave me alone
Warona: Sister, I am sorry
I sat down in bed.
Me: Where did you get so much negativity?
Warona: What’s that?
Me: Never mind. I am sleeping
She wiped off my tears.
Warona: Please forgive me
Me: I will forgive you today then you hurt me again tomorrow, no Warona, leave me alone
Warona: Sister, please
Me: Who taught you all those bad things you said? Kate?
Me: Then who?
Warona: Everyone. They say that Rita is a witch and they don’t like her
Me: Did they also tell you to yell at me and hurt me?
Me: This place is not good for you, I need to do something
Warona: Something like what?
Me: He was right, we should fake it. They should kidnap you
Warona: Sister, what are you saying? Who’s going to kidnap me?
Me: Let’s sleep, I’ll tell you everything tomorrow. You and I are going to the mall tomorrow
Warona: We are not allowed to go out
Warona: The small children
Me: I am going with you to the mall tomorrow, don’t worry
Warona: That Wit… Uhh… Rita will refuse
Me: She already told me that I can take you with me tomorrow
Warona: (Smiles) Wow, really?
Warona: Thank you
Me: You are welcome
Warona: Did you forgive me?
Me: Yes, I forgave you
Warona: (Smiles) Thank you. I love you
Me: I love you too
Warona: Sister, I really don’t like Rita. Please don’t allow her to come to our room again
Me: Okay, I won’t
Warona: (Smiles) Pinky promise?
Me: (Smiles) Pinky promise
We shared a hug and went to sleep.
The next day we woke up, kept ourselves hygienic clean, ate breakfast then went to the mall.
I am so happy. I guess working with connected people is great. The Samuels are not the only connected ones.
Part 42 – Is It All A Dream?
I should enjoy the day with my little sister. At 17:00 today, The Samuels are going down and from tomorrow life will be great. I hope that everything will go according to plan.
I made sure that I take my sister to the nicest places so that she can enjoy herself. I took her to the restaurant to have something to eat, I then took her to the movies to watch animation movie, after both watching a movie we went to the children’s playhouse where she had fun like never before, she even got her face painted, all I did was to take pictures and videos of her, she was really looking happy. After the children’s playhouse, we went to the Zoo. She enjoyed checking out the animals and she wasn’t even scared of them.
For the whole day, people were asking me if Warona is my child because she looks like me. They told me that we are really beautiful. They made me miss my parents, really.
Warona: Sister, do I really look like you?
Me: Just a little
Warona: Oh, that’s nice
Me: I am kidding, you look like a monkey
Warona: Which monkey?
Me: The one over there
Warona: (Laughs) No, that monkey looks like Rita
I just laughed. This girl is really naughty.
Me: We’ve seen all the animals now, let’s leave
Warona: Sister, please buy me an ice cream
Me: I’ll get you ice cream and cotton candy
Warona: What’s cotton candy?
Me: The one I bought for you at the children’s playhouse. Do you remember?
Warona: No, I don’t remember. You bought me many things
Me: Candy floss, it was pink, remember? It looked like your hair
Warona: (Giggled) Oh, yes, I remember it. I really enjoyed it. What is it called?
Me: Cotton candy or candy floss
Warona: We never had it at the orphanage. The children don’t even know it
Me: It’s because of Rita, I understand why you all don’t know it
Warona: Let’s go
Me: What else do you want?
Warona: I want you to carry me, I am tired of walking
Me: Is that all?
Warona: Yes, sister
Me: Okay, come
Warona: Sister, can you please buy me those balloons?
Me: But you have balloons with you
Warona: I want more
Truly speaking, I am going to get her anything she wants. She doesn’t get to be this happy at the orphanage.
Rita gave me money so I might as well use it.
Warona: Sister, who is going to kidnap me?
Me: No one, I was just scaring you
Me: Because you were mean to me
Warona: Oh, okay
Me: You look very happy today
Warona: (Smiles) I am happy, sister
Me: (Smiles) Me too
Warona: I love you
Me: I love you too
Warona: Are you going to buy me clothes?
Me: Clothes? Do you want clothes?
Warona: Yes and please buy for Kate
Me: Okay, it’s now 16:20 and we should go back to the orphanage. We’ll buy clothes tomorrow
Warona: But why?
Me: We need to be at the orphanage at 17:00, honey
Me: But you enjoyed your day, right?
Warona: Yes, sister. Thank you
Me: (Smiles) You are welcome
Warona: Are we going to do this everyday?
Me: Every week
Warona: (Smiles) Wow
Me: Aren’t you hungry?
Warona: I am
Me: I’ll get you something to eat
Warona: You should also eat
We got everything and left.
Warona: Sister, your car is beautiful
Me: Thank you
Warona: Where did you get money to buy it?
Me: From… Uhh… Alex
Warona: Brother Alex gave you money to buy a car?
Me: Yes, honey. Brother Alex gave me money
I lied to her because I didn’t want to mention Rita’s name and make her angry. She doesn’t like Rita so I shouldn’t tell her that I got the car from Rita.
Warona: But why?
Me: Because he’s nice
Warona: Oh, okay
Me: Yes, honey
Warona: But why am I not sitting with you there?
Me: Children must sit at the back, honey
Warona: Oh, okay then
Me: Yes, sweetheart
We arrived at the orphanage at 16:53.
Truly speaking, I had the best day ever. I love my sister so much. She gives me life. She’s my everything.
I obviously got something for Kate. She’s my friend’s little sister and she’s also my little sister’s friend. She was so happy that I got her something.
Warona told her about her day and I also told Michaela about my day.
Kate: Sister Wame, may I please join you next time?
Me: (Smiles) Definitely. Michaela, you are also welcome
Michaela: (Smiles) Thanks but will Rita allow us?
Me: She’s going down today. One minute to go
Me: It’s now 16:59 so at 17:00…
Aunt Nina stormed in.
Me: What do you want?
Nina: Who called the cops on The Samuels?
Me: (Smiles) What? Are the cops here?
Nina: Probably fifty of them. It’s so packed outside
It’s 17:00 so I am not surprised.
Me: Are they in the yard?
Nina: Yes. They have Joseph, Rita and Joshua
Michaela: (Smiles) Wame, we have to see everything
Me: Sure, let’s go
We ran outside.
Is this really happening or am I dreaming? I hope that I am not dreaming. But what if I am dreaming? Then what? What if I was dreaming all along?
