I got into the house and got all my clothes and packed the in the cases and carried them to my car. I wanted to head to my friend’s place but then she had been recently wedded so she was living with her husband and I knew it would be improper and inconveniencing for them.

So I just decided to find a hotel room and took their all my stuff as I laid a strategy for my next plans of finding my son. I was so worried and sickened at heart for whatever was gonna happen to my child wasn’t going to be a good thing.

When I got to the hotel room, the first thing I did was take a shower and refresh and laid on the bed as I cried. I found myself lying on top of the bed all uncovered and that’s how I had slept off.

I cried myself to bed. I felt weak and sad. My child was all I had in this world and I couldn’t imagine being without him. He was the greatest thing that had ever happened to me in a long time.

That morning as I laid there thinking thru a lot of things in my situation, I received a call from an unknown number and when I picked it up, it was Mr. X calling me to the other house to pick my son.

So apparently, he had found out that the son wasn’t his. And it turned out that he had not taken him for DNA, he had taken him to his witch doctors for the rituals which rejectrd him saying that they had asked him for his own blood and yet this baby wasn’t his blood so he had to return him.

When I got there the man was extremely mad at me and calling all sorts of names. He told me as he knew I was a whore from the first place he told me that I was going to face it rough and that he was going to kill me.

He then gave me my kid and headed for his car and drove away. I was left there with son In fear but still happy that my child had been returned unharmed.

Banange twagal ebintu ebilungi but this was costing me my life. Now when he left I knew he meant everything that he said and I got my kid and drove to the hotel but I knew it wasn’t going to be long before he found out about my where about.

I knew we had to disappear from very far that he could never get to us and harm us in any way so I got a plot for how I was going to do that but I wasn’t sure if we had enough time.
