Mercy:- I wasn't there when it happened ,mum
Mr martin:- what!!! Where were u when all this
Mercy:- (looks Martin in the eye) won't u just
leave me alone now?
Martin:-(feigning annoyance) now don't u dare
disrespect me now.
Mercy':- you're not worth my respect.
Kemi:- now mercy stop that. You're talking to
your dad.
[7/5, 23:19] El'karnah Meshach: Mercy:- what is
the use of having a dad that doesn't think or
care about me..
Martin:- on no condition should u talk to me in
such tone.
Mercy:- I can speak my thoughts freely and you
can't stop me from saying my mind.
I've gone out, seen things,and I'm well
experienced now.
I can't continue having your fear in me. You're
not worth it.
Martin;- (stammers) Me -ma young woman, stop
all this nonsense at once

name anymore. I'm like an invisible pillar before

out. U better get her under control
Kemi:- mercy!!! Jor ma koba mi o(in Yoruba tone)
Mercy:- mum don't worry,Meshach recognized
one of the thugs and shouted his name before
he was kidnapped. Its probably through your
husband's influence that he got to know the
[7/5, 23:28] El'karnah Meshach: Kemi:- u seem
to be mixing words up dear.are u sure?
Mercy:-yes mum...eye witnesses heard him
shout the name.
Martin:- he said the name? What did he call it?
Mercy:- don't bother asking me, cos I won't tell
you anything.
Martin:- come on girl' you've always wanted to
be important, and now is your chance. Prove
your worth by giving me the name.
Mercy':- I have nothing to prove to u. And I don't
want to feel important to u ever again. I'm
already important to those who know my values
and abilities
Kemi:- (shocked) mercy!! Why won't you reveal
such info? Its the only lead to finding your

Episode 27
(Martin walks back into the House at 4pm)
Kemi:- how far my husband? Any luck
Martin:- I managed to file a report at the station.
But I can't count on that. I need to take actions
on my own. This is about my only son
Kemi:- oh God!! How do we go about that.
Martin:- I've hunted so many during my days, this
one shouldn't be hard. Remember I'm an ex-
militant.I have things under control
Kemi:- this man! Don't start again o. You are no
militant ,u only attended a military school, what
right does that gives u to take actions by
yourself. You're more of a civilian now. *Ma koba
mi o* (In Yoruba tone)
Martin:- look,this is my son we're talking about.
No action is too little to save him. I'll get him
back myself
[7/6, 06:58] El'karnah Meshach: Kemi:- he is my
son too, but we don't have a lead to finding the
whereabouts of the nappers.
Martin:- why won't your daughter just let this out
once and for all
Kemi:-(wears a frown) you see your problem
now. We gave birth to her together she is our
daughter and not mine. This is part of the things
you do that has made her stay mute.
Martin:- what has that got to do with this?
You better go and talk to your daughter and
make her talk
Kemi:- look here, Meshach is my son too. But I
will not go and ask mercy for the name. It is you
that Will ask for yourself
Martin:- (annoyed)what!! Look, so you're not
worried about possibilities that those nappers
may kill our son before we do something and
Kemi:- (cuts in in an angry tone) o ohhh?? He is
now our son abi? He is no more your son alone
eh!!! Ah, martin. I know nothing will happen to my
son, I know this is is a plan from heaven that will
make you realise the mistake you've made in this
marriage and your life entirely. And I will support
mercy on this one. You better go and talk to her
and+ appease her, else, this house will not be
cool on you (she sits down back with her legs
Martin:-(after few minutes of absolute silence)
which of the rooms is Mercy's own?
Kemi:-(sighs In a rude way) why don't u go get a
map for that (hisses)
