“Its rather unfortunate, we tried all that we could, but Juliet can’t be able to walk again, it will take a miracle to make her walk” The Doctor said. THE PAINS OF A LONELY HEART-Episode 20
“Oh no my daughter, God will surely answer my prayers” Mrs. Johnson said. “He will indeed answer, Juliet will walk again. Doctor can we see her now? Daniel asked.
“Now about that, did any of you serve Juliet with breakfast today?” The Doctor asked. Daniel and Mrs. Johnson looked surprised with that question. “Am afraid no, what is it” Mrs. Johnson asked.
“Can I see you in my office Mrs. Johnson” The Doctor asked. “Yeah sure” Answered Mrs. Johnson. She then followed the Doctor to the office. From the question the Doctor gave, Daniel knew that it has to do with food poisoning. He wanted to see Juliet at all cost. Since he knew her ward, without the notice of anyone, he slowly entered the ward of Juliet. There she was, lying in her bed, looking up to the ceiling. She was lost in thought. She knew she has been poisoned and that got her thinking. Who could have done such a thing to her? What wrong has she done to anyone to be treated like this? And who really sent that young Paulina girl who claimed that she was sent by Mrs Johnson.
This were the only few questions among many which run through her mind as she laid in her sick bed. She had no idea that she couldn’t walk. When Daniel walked in, she didn’t even notice because, she was so lost in thought.
Even though she couldn’t feel her legs move, amazingly she felt a cold touch on her toes. That distracted her from her thoughts, she quickly checked to see who it was. It was Daniel. She smiled as she saw him. Her smile was so beautiful that it also got Daniel smiling.THE PAINS OF ALONELY HEART-Episode 20
He came closer to her, looked into her eyes. Juliet called out his name softly ” Daniel”
Daniel however, placed his finger on her lips, shushing her. He slowly bend his head down and kissed her fore head. “Juliet, you are well” Daniel said. “I know My God will heal me Daniel” Juliet said.
” Don’t talk my dear, just pray and thank God.” Daniel said. He took out a complementary card from his pocket and gave it Juliet.
“As soon as you get out of here, go to this address” Daniel said. “For what Daniel, why are you acting strange” Juliet said.
She was worried about the attitude of Daniel. He was acting really strange and to some extent it scared Juliet. “I will be right back, let me check on something will be back then we can talk” Daniel said with a smiling face.
“where are you going to Daniel? Juliet asked. ” Don’t worry, I will be back. Close that beautiful eyes of yours and pray my dear” Daniel said this and walked out of the ward.
Ben was at the police station, still praying and asking God for forgiveness. He felt alone and sad. He thought he had been rejected by his family. Ever since he was arrested. Apart from Daniel and his mother’s lawyer, no one had come to visit him, not even James or his own mother.
He felt neglected for his actions. Even though he had not been convicted yet, already he felt he has been isolated.
His only comfort was in prayer. As much as he always prayed to God for forgiveness, he felt inspired and strengthened after each prayer. THE PAINS OF A LONELY HEART-Episode 20
During that morning, one of the policemen came and called him out. To his surprise, the policeman told him that he was a free man. He couldn’t believe his ears. That was impossible, who could be behind this, he dressed up in the shirt he wore when he got arrested. As he walked to the counter he saw Daniel there waiting for him.
“Daniel, how did you do it?” Ben asked. Daniel smiled at him and said, “Just get yourself ready, I will be waiting for you outside” Daniel said and went out.THE PAINS OF ALONELY HEART-Episode 20
Ben was given some papers to sign and as soon as he was done, he went out to meet Daniel. He got out and Daniel was no where to be found, he looked around everywhere but couldn’t find him anywhere.
“where could he be? Ben asked himself. He waited for awhile to see if he will show up but he didn’t. He had no option than to go. The first thing that came to his mind was to go and see Juliet at the hospital. He quickly left the police station.
Back at the Doctor’s office, the Doctor had a lengthy discussion concerning the food poisoning of Juliet that almost made her lost her life.
He advised that apart from Mrs. Johnson and any other person who she will recommend, no one will have the privilege to visit Juliet until she is finally discharged for precautionary measures. Mrs. Johnson agreed to what the doctor had said and recommended only Jax and James. Apart from them, no one will be allowed to see Juliet.
Right after their discussion Mrs. Johnson asked if she could see Juliet briefly. The Doctor gave her the go ahead and together they came out of the office.
“Mum” Ben called her from behind as soon as they got out of the office. He had arrived at the hospital. His mother was so surprised to see him.
“Ben, I was about to come and see you” Mrs. Johnson said.
Ben shock his head and said “Am here now, how is Juliet? Ben asked. “We are about going to see her, meet the Doctor. he is the one taking care of Juliet, Doctor this my son Ben”
They shake hands but was interrupted when someone called Ben from the back. It came from Juliet’s ward. They turned and to their surprise, there stood Juliet on her two legs standing in front of the ward. She looked healthy and was able to walk.
“what, this can’t be? The Doctor said with amazement….
