.Mr Patrick got to the hospital to see several machines connected to Mrs Armstrong body which was beeping and a metre hanging on the wall showing some reading he didn’t understand.

Mr Patrick was stunned to see the woman badly damaged, he shook his head negatively just then the doctor emerged from the door.

“Good afternoon doctor “Mr Patrick greeted.

“Good afternoon, welcome sir. please are you related to this woman because since she was brought here no one shows up to know her except this girl here standing and it’s a pity we have not taken proper care of her as we should do, it’s only because of this girl here that we agreed to help her because of her story “Dr Ekan said.
The word hit Me Patrick in the heart as he heard the story that the woman was not properly taken care of and he knew that it was all his fault, if not so she would not be there suffering.

Fresh tears began flowing from Melody eyes, she just stood there shedding tears not knowing why the man asked her to bring her here.

“Starr proper work on her immediately and make sure she’s fine and okay for her daughter “Mr Patrick said and the word cut the tears back into melody’s eyes, she wondered who the good Samaritan was the came from nowhere and decided to help her and her family without any reason.

Melody was so happy that she couldn’t even control it than to kneel down and thank Me Patrick not knowing that he was the one that got her mom in the situation.

“Thank you sir,,,, she greeted with a shaking voice

“Stand up dear, all will be fine soon “he said and helped her up on her feet.

“Follow me to the shopping mall because she will need some stuffs to keep her strong and healthy “he said to melody who only nod her head and followed him out of hospital.

It’s three good days now that melody didn’t attend school and she has missed so many lessons but luckily for her that she’s brilliant and she always read all her notes anytime she’s chanced.

Dave sat down on his desk wondering why the new girl is not in school for two days now and it’s obvious that he has been secretly crushing on her which no one noticed.

Dave is as handsome as Henry but the difference between them was that he has a pair of glasses on his eyes which was given to him by the doctor to enable him see clearly, and he is fai r in complexion.

“Mehn, the girl is really hot and I like her “Dave said to Mike his friend on their way to the cafeteria.

“Don’t even go there man, can’t you see that she does not have time for boys and moreover she’s so damn poor”Mike mocked

“It’s true bro, is like she’s poor oo”

“Before nko? you better get rid of that thing you call feelings for that idiot, you know we don’t mingle with the poor, she’s just lucky to attend our school “Mike blurted out.

“You are right man, I better stay away from her before students start calling me after that poor girl ooo and if my dad got to hear about this that means I’m dead” he said as they proceed to their classroom.

Mrs Hannah was still so worried that her new brilliant girl is still absent from school but she didn’t know her whereabouts and how to find her which got her more confused and worried.

Amanda couldn’t help than to gossip day after day about melody with her crew.

“Where’s this new bitch? why is she not in school? Praise said aloud while enjoying themselves in the cafeteria.

“Who knows whether that idiot is a prostitute and whether she’s pregnant which stopped her from coming to school ” Joy said and all of them end of laughing

“You are right ooo, maybe she’s pregnant ooo”Amanda said out and just then Henry passed them heading inside which got them startled and after a while he came out again.

“I have a perfect plan ladies to make Henry hate melody for the rest of his life and come back begging for me to be his girlfriend “Amanda said.

“How is that possible because we all know who Henry is “praise said and it was concured by others

“Just watch me “she said said and stood up walking to Henry as they all wait to hear her feed back.

Henry was still walking when he heard footsteps following him,he looked back only to discover that Amanda was shouting his name for him to stop and he frown wondering what it was and stopped.

“Didn’t you want to wait for me? Amanda asked immediately she got to Henry


“Sorry I didn’t hear you early enough ”

“Okay dear, how are you doing today “she asked smiling

“Is that all you wanted to say? anywhere am fine as you can see”he said and turned to leave but was interrupted by Amanda speech

“Melody sent me a message to you “She said looking else where and standing akimbo. hearing the name melody Henry stopped and looked back at her and she smiled inwardly knowing that her plan will work out.

“Melody? you mean the new melody? he asked and she nodded her head.

“Melody is pregnant, and the news is everywhere. she saw me on my way back from school yesterday and check asked me to plead with you that it’s not her fault to get pregnant that she has been doing prostitution just to survive ” She said and just then Henry expression changed immediately hearing that and he was out of words as he left the place instantly without saying anything.

“Yes it work as well planned ” Amanda exclaimed and walked to their girls who were eager to hear how it went.

Henry got to the class and he couldn’t even eat the lunch he purchased from the cafeteria without of the news he just got from Amanda.

he wondered whether it’s true, or whether she lied to him.

He remember that Amanda always hated melody for no reason which makes a little perplex whether Amanda is trying to deceive him or whether it’s true.

“It might be true ooo because I can’t see a reason a new girl after her two days in school is suddenly absent from school for three days ” he said to himself and then decided to forget the matter and see the outcome of it.

Melody was so excited that finally God has answered her prayers by sending a good Samaritan to help her mother.

Stay tuned for the poor girl episode 6.
Will Henry believe Amanda?
Will Melody show up in school the next day? If yes how will the situation be?




Melody woke up the next day and the event of the previous day flashed back into her mind as she dressed up do r school this making her to smile like someone who has loss her senses.

Meanwhile at golden gate school the news had already gone viral that Melody the new girl is pregnant that’s why she’s absent from school.

How the news spread around like that was not known to anyone and who took up the responsibility of spreading the fake news about Melody.

Even Mrs Hannah heard it and she was shocked to the bones especially for the fact that she didn’t see melody to be such a girl.

A smile crossed Amanda lips and she gives her friends high shouting out that her plan has finally worked out.

She went ahead to tell people that even if she comes to school the next day because she knew that she will definitely not stay away from school forever that she has aborted it. she went ahead telling people to observe Melody when she comes to the school that she will be thinking and will be dull in school even that she will be looking pale too so as to convince them to believe what she said to be true.

Melody finally dressed up and looked at herself in the small mirror in their house not minding to check on her parents because Mr Patrick had taken proper care of them as she always wanted.

She took her books and left for school, on getting to the school the school assembly was on and none noticed her presence except the junior students.

Amanda was standing at the front side when she immediately turned and saw melody standing at the far end. she tap her friends and they went ahead and tap other people and soon all eyes were fed on melody as she stood looking confused whether she’s smelling or she’s not normal thus making her to feel uncomfortable especially how the male eyes moves rhythmically up and down at her.

Soon the devotion ended and she left to their class almost immediately, she took the staircase up and then settle on her desk bringing out her note book as usual.

Everyone who came into the class gave her a disdainful look and proceeded to their sit taking time to examine her to see whether the news is true which got melody confused.

Henry as well came and pass her without looking at her or even saying hi which was unlike him and it was strange to melody as everyone keeps stairing at her. she wondered whether she’s a ghost.

Melody was a weak type who she’d tears so easily and tears were already formed in her eyes ready to drop as soon as possible, to her fate the geography teacher Mr Anuma entered the class which made everyone stood up and greet him and that saved melody from her stress of thinking.


Without wasting time Mr Anuma proceed to the board and wrote the topic of the day lesson which was “DENUDATION “.

“Good morning class “Mr Anuma greeted

“Good morning sir”They respond

“Today we are going to deal with the topic that says “Denudation “and I need your cooperation. is that clear?

“Yes sir!

“Good, can someone tell me what is denudation?

Half of the class lift up their hands exception of Melody pretending as if she doesn’t know the answer to the question.

“Yes you tell us what is denudation “Mr Anuma said pointing to Amanda who lifted her hand so high for melody to see that she’s brilliant too.

Yes it’s true that Amanda is brilliant too and she normally takes up the first position in the class and she always represent her school in any inter-school competition.

Amanda stood up slowly and smiled.

“Sir, denudation is the washing and wearing away of the earth surface by gradual washing and wearing away of such surface “She said boldly

“Good! let’s clap for her “Mr Anuma exclaimed.

“Now can someone here tell me the agents of denudation?

They lift up their hands again and still melody didn’t lift up her hand and Mr Anuma noticed it and pointed at her.

“Yes young girl tell us “he said pointing to melody but she was lost in thought thinking of how to break the record of her family background that she didn’t even heard when her name was being called.

The class went silent immediately to hear what melody will say but to their out most surprise she didn’t say anything she was lost in thought and almost half of the class concluded that the news they heard about her was true.

Mr Anuma asked a girl who sat near her to touch her and immediately the girl touched her, she jerked up from her thought and that was when she noticed that all eyes were on her.

“Now tell the class what I asked you”Mr Anuma requested and melody didn’t know what to say she only stood there like a molten figure wondering what the question was.

Mr Anuma shook his head pitifully and then signalled another person to answer which he did.

“What are you thinking in my class?

“Sir, she’s thinking about her baby that she aborted “Amanda blurted out which got the class in a transfixed situation as their shout echoed the class.

Mr Anuma wondered what could have made Amanda to say such.

“And who asked you to speak for her? Mr Anuma faced Amanda angrily.

“As for you come over here and kneel down here until I finish teaching “He ordered melody who obeyed the instruction and did as instructed.

While kneeling down Henry kept glancing at her feeling the pain in his heart and melody kept returning the glance immediately after.

The rest of the lesson was boring to Melody as she was kneeling down and God finally answered her prayers as Mr Anuma finished his stuff and picked his lesson note and left the class and she stood up almost immediately and her knees were paining her.

Immediately Mr Anuma left, Mrs Hannah who was waiting for him to leave entered the class and didn’t even noticed that melody is in school.

She walked to the board and wrote the topic of the day on the board.

“Good morning everyone, today we are dealing with the topic “REPRODUCTION “,and can someone tell us what is reproduction? She asked and almost immediately all eyes turned to melody to answer the question as if she’s the one holding the key to the answer of the question.

Henry looked away immediately his eyes caught her own.

That was when Mrs Hannah noticed melody presence in the class and she was shocked, and he knew the reason why all the students eyes fed on her too they have heard the news of her pregnancy.

“Sorry class we will continue this class another day, melody follow me now! she ordered and took her books and leave and immediately without asking questions she followed Mrs Hannah to the general staff room.

What’s going to happen in the staff room???
Why is Mrs Hannah calling melody out and why did she end her lesson like that??



Melody got to the staff room that was filled with teachers both male and female and they fed their eyes on her this making her to feel shy.

Mrs Hannah sat down on her desk and signalled melody to come to her and melody walked to her.

“What made you to be absent from……. “She didn’t finished her speech when Melody held her stomach and ran out of the staff room and then she vomited outside thus giving Mrs Hannah that shock of her life this making her to believe that the whole news she heard was the truth.

Melody cleaned her mouth with her handkerchief and then walked back into the staff room.

Mrs Hannah shook her head negatively waiting for her to get close and she finally got there.

“You can go now melody “Mrs Hannah said without looking at her and that alone cause melody to be confused thinking about why she called her there and only to tell her to go back without saying anything.

“But ma’am you wanted to…..

“I say go back to the class, I’m done with you cause you have disappointed me” Mrs Hannah shouted thus attracting other teacher to them.

Melody ran out of the staff room without looking back nor paying a listening ear to anyone.

She got to the class and then put down her head on her desk shedding tears, Amanda who was watching her from a far wondered what could have made her run like that.

Melody was still crying without looking up when she felt a hand on her shoulder, she looked up and then saw Gladys looking into her eyes.

Gladys is her classmate who sits next to melody, seeing melody cry everyday really touched her heart and she decided to change the situation.

Henry too was fighting with the urge not to get close to melody but he just couldn’t hold the pains in his heart, though she has messed up.

“Melody, it’s okay stop crying “Gladys said and sat down with melody.

Henry too stood up from his place and walked to melody slowly with his neatly ironed uniform.

“Melody, what happened there?
why are you even crying? please stop crying “He said and sat down too with Gladys next to her.

David too a young handsome dude didn’t like the way they treated melody, so he stood up too and consoled Melody not to worry that all will be fine.

Behold melody didn’t believe what was happening at all that she now has a team of people who is with her on her side.

Just as she was smiling,the running stomach came up again and she held her stomach running down the staircase thus making everyone to exchanged puzzle looks at each other wondering what’s wrong. They all looked through the window and found melody vomiting and they all looked at each other in the eyes that says “So the news is true “.

Amanda who also watched the scene was now laughing so hard that she didn’t know what else to do.

“I told you but you didn’t believe me “Amanda said to her friends

Melody walked into the class as all eyes moved down to her belly part stairing at her and observing to see whether the news is true.

Melody too wondered what could have caused such stomach upset, she walked to where she was sitting.

Henry now believed everything that he heard, he gave melody space to sit as he give her a look she didn’t understand even Gladys too and David were now suspecting her.

Melody didn’t understand what was going on at all as she wondered whether she’s smelling that everyone are stairing at her.

School finally closed for the day as everyone took their bags to leave but melody didn’t show any sign of going home, she sat there looking sober.

Henry walked passed her and then wave a goodbye hand to her and then walk out.

Amanda walked out of the class then turned and smirk at melody who didn’t say anything.

After everyone has left, she finally leaves the school at last with the thought of how everyone behaved with her in school that day but she couldn’t find the right answer to it as she head home.

Mr Patrick got back from work and then checked on Mrs Armstrong to see how she’s fairing and her health was improving but he didn’t informed his family about the situation he is now, but he plan to do so when he get home.

Mr Patrick finally arrived home and was welcomed by his wife and her daughter Amanda who took the briefcase from her taking him inside.

Mr Patrick relaxed on the couch and then took off his suit leaving only his tie on and shirt and black trousers on.

He later told his family about the woman he injured which was melody mother and they decided to pay her a family visit in the evening .
