The doctor came and told them that he is alive. The boy’s parents arrived at the hospital crying and yelling at Amala. Amala promised them to give them some money, but they didn’t care about money, all they care it’s their son. The next morning, her parents left and left her some money and she could stay with her aunt. Later at night, her aunt invited all her friends, they were all drunk, except that two of them were acting weirdly. They look like they want to rob them, the two girls go to her dad’s office, she follows them. They tried the password of the safe box money, she tried to call her aunt but she couldn’t make it. She stopped them, and she chased them out of the house. The next morning she told her aunt what happened yesterday, with her friends.

Her aunt:

Amala: yes, but don’t ask to many questions or details

Amala always wanted to protect her parents, they meant the world to her. They always make good for her, to make sure she was happy like everyone in their family. She told her aunt to never bring up her friends again to meet up at Amala’s house, probably in her own house. Suddenly her aunt got a call from her husband asking her to go and visit him in jail. Amala was very upset and interrupted her, shouted and said No!”, her aunt told her not to interrupt people during their conversation. Her aunt told Amala that, in the morning she shall go to visit her husband in jail. In the morning, she went to visit her husband. In the visit, her husband gave her a mission of murdering Amala’s father, Amala’s aunt didn’t want to have fingerprints on a dead body. Her husband told her to call three men that used to work with him, before he goes to jail. Amala’s aunt returns home acting terribly, she calls the three mens that her husband told her to. Amala asked her why, she’s acting gross. just give me some space please? her aunt said. Amala had a men’s voice and she remembered that she had had that voice before. She asked her aunt who is that man?. “My friend, plus stop asking me,” her aunt said. Amala, thought that, possibly her aunt is working with the kidnappers. She wasn’t so sure, she dropped it. Amala’s aunt invited the three men, in Amala’s house. They had a sit in the compound so that Amala couldn’t hear what they were saying. Amala’s aunt checked first if Amala wasn’t around. Five minutes later, she realized that she wasn’t around. They started planning how to breakin Amala’s father’s house, and murder her. One of the three men asked Amala’s aunt, why does she want to see Amala’s father dead. That’s none of your business, just do your work and leave the rest for me, Amala’s aunt said. Amala returned home, happy and laughing, the three men got out of the house rapidly. Amala got a first position as CEO of the company speech. At night, they surrounded the fire, and began telling stories to each other. “Maybe we should talk about skin colors, so that i could know more about Black people and you could know about white people, right?”, Amala’s aunt said. effectively, i don’t know much about black people, but i will just what i know, Amala said. Amala started telling her aunt about black people; “black people were most likely direct descendants of enslaved Africans, it is a history about privilege, racism, and the lived experiences, black lives matter. Us as black people we need to be treated like white people, no racism, that’s all i know what about you?Amala said.” I’m sorry, I know nothing about white people, Amala’s aunt said.
