A year later I was walking down the road from a nearby shop where my mother sent me as I was walking I felt like am been followed by something it was shadows. It was in the evening and my home is just a few meters away. I stopped walking and looked back all I could see was a speeding vehicle in the main road and some cars parking besides the road.
I sighed heavily and increased my pace so that I could get home quickly it reminded me again when I was with my younger brother Letso who was just 10 years old when we went to play together by the riverside the similar shadows I saw some years ago was the same as the one I felt was coming behind me. Meanwhile I took the other route to see if really I am being followed by something. Before I could get home I saw my mother outside the yard where I normally play football with my friends she was holding a dead baby. The blood of the baby kept dropping on the ground and again my mother was holding a steak knife on the other hand. I ran towards her as she cried and tears with a mixture-like blood streamed down her face I stopped to take a look before I knew it it was something else.
was my late grandmother
“I have been waiting for you I almost burnt my stew where are the things I sent you to buy” she said..” here am coming” I said…I felt like something wasn’t alright about the place and neighborhood terrible things are happening daily. “What is this blood and pound of flesh doing here” I asked. “ Just a few minutes ago a drunk driver hit a dog and drove off” said mom.
I was surprised still staring at the blood and the fresh flesh on the ground…”A dog? what is this piece of flesh doing here it doesn’t look like a flesh of a dog” I said.
“Never mind come inside the house it dangerous out there” said mom. I walked to the house but I was so curious to know about the accident that happened in front of our yard.
