...It had to be.

The weekend came in slowly as possible. A colleague of hers had a birthday celebration that Friday and she tried her best to truly be happy. This particular colleague always gave her quite a tough time, he remarked on anything and everything he could think of about her and she hated the way he went about it.

He made her feel like sin.

She called garbage to his talk but never had the guts to say it to him, she would be dammed if she started a fight in the house of God, she knew that much.

Food was served round the offices in celebration and it was the party food of the country Jollof (1) Rice and a well roasted fish. She took a spoon of it during lunch break and realized the pepper used was more than she could bear and she had her health to think of so she gave the food out.

That night her pain came visiting again waking her up in the middle of the night. She steadily carried herself to her living room so as to not wake up Precious that was sleeping soundly.

They had their first check that day on the road as the minister of works and development for the state came around. He was pleased with how much has been done and Su Yan discussed further with him on how he really was working towards finishing in less than four months.

Tale opened her eyes slowly and realized it was very bright for her at once, she turned to lie on her back and that's when she recalled she had slept off on the couch, she looked at her side and didn't find her drugs.

She tried to feel the couch to check if she lad laid on it or kicked it to a corner. She felt weak, really weak but her daily chores had to be done.

She got up to see precious staring at her and knew where her drugs must have gone.

"Well, well, well…"

"Yep, good morning to you too"

Precious most definitely wasn't in the mood to go back and forth with her so she raised up the pills in her hand as well as the Gestid syrup she had chugged down half of.

"Yes I had a little heart burn last night and took it"

"Do you really think I'm stupid, half the packet of pills is gone. Are you abusing drugs"

"OK, I've been having a bit of heart burn lately. It's the stress and…"

"Not eating right because I don't know who the hell you think you are"

Precious said something in Igbo (2) that Tale couldn't under
