Daddy and You Knew..... by Aladeloba Babatunde


Daddy and you knew, she said as she laid helpless on the hospital bed, her eyes were yellow, her stomach protruding, she was back in the hospital for the sixth time just at the first Quarter of the year, she always spent her holidays at the hospital bed and unlike other school kids Bunmi never made 70% of school attendance. I am sure am going to die,  she said to her mother who was on a black head tie, and looking dejected and in utmost despair. You are mourning me already Bunmi said, but her mother stayed mute. The room ambience had a pre-mourning silence, her father was on a polo shirt, he was the CEO of Global energy, a multinational oil company. Bunmi had been diagnosed of  Sickle Cell Anemia at birth, her chances of living past childhood were slim and here she was at just the age of twelve, she was loosing the battle to Sickle Cell Anemia, her father made to placate her, she moved her hand and turned her head.  You both knew it will come to this she muttered and yet you went on to get married. This opened the lachrymal glands of her father as tears begin to roll down the contours of his cheek. The doctor and his team of nurses came and wheeled her into the hematology room for bone-marrow transplant as her mother dropped a rosary in her hand.
