TANGLE Episode 20
After they finished their discussion, the doctor prescribed a list of pills for her to take and she was discharged from the hospital. She took the pills when they got home and she was made to give her weak body a rest on her bed which later led into a deep slumber. Malik and his friend inside Malik’s room having a serious discussion on what to do on the matter on the ground.
‘So Helen is going to have her memory back after all this while that will be
great’ Jeff said opening the conversation.
‘I wish there is something I can do to prevent that from happening’ Malik replied.
‘What? Why do you say such a thing?’ Jeff inquired.
‘This isn’t the right time for memory recovery, she has just entered our family’ Malik answered.
‘Malik, I know what you are thinking. You think once that girl recalls everything about her past life, she will leave us here and go back to her home. You think you are going to lose her love’ Jeff said.
‘What nonsense are you saying Jeff? Why can’t you think reasonably once in your life? Am disturbed because we just divulged all secret about our business to her thinking she was part of us but if she recovers her memory, she will leave us carrying all our secret with her’ Malik explained.
‘Okay, I get your point but what do you think we should do about it?’ Jeff asked.
‘We can’t afford such leakage in our operation’ Malik said.
‘We will have to kill her if she intends to leave in order to seal the leakage then’ Jeff suggested.
‘No it won’t be up to that, let’s just pray she doesn’t remember her past’ Malik said.
As they were talking they suddenly heard Helen shouted from her room.
They rushed there to find her awake.
‘What is it again, Helen?’ Jeffery asked.
‘I remember my mother’ she announced.
Malik felt a sudden pound in his heart.
‘I remembered helping my mother as she was smoking the fish which she was going to take to the market’ Helen said.
‘Do you remember your real name, your residence or anything else?’ Malik asked.
‘No, the only thing I can recollect is that. Haa, my mother, she must have been worried sick about me’ she said.
‘Don’t worry, she will see you soon, why don’t you sleep again and see if you can remember anything else’ Jeffery said.
