It was a sunny day, I woke up quickly and did my chores. Dad was dressing up, he was to attend a meeting and he will be gone for a week. This meeting was going to get him a promotion. We went to see dad off, mum drove us to the airport and we wished dad a safe journey. Mum was worried sick about the trip. So we saw dad’s plane take off and we went back home, when dad reached his destination he called us and we spoke at length. He was already booked into a hotel and would go for the meeting the next day. I was watching tv on a cold evening so I switched to the news channel. The headline was shocking and scary at the same time, it read thus “DEADLY CORONA VIRUS TRACES FOUND IN LONDON” and that was where dad went for his meeting. The virus was deadly, I did some research and found out the way it attacked and killed the cells was extremely fast and my God did it spread like wildfire. You could contact it from the craziest means possible. Imagine getting the virus from simply taking your money from a trader or shaking your friend or a simple high five. It was that bad indeed, a huge number of cases were reported in London. The scientist termed the virus “Covid-19”, people were advised to stay in their homes because the government was planning to enact a lock-down law to curtail the spread of the dreaded coronavirus.
The cases in London rose and I haven’t yet told mum because am scared. Will she be able to handle the news I asked myself? She deserves to know the truth so I braced myself and walked to her room to tell her. Of course, she was shocked, even I could see that she was struggling to pull herself together. She suggested we said a short prayer and we did. I left and could hear her sob from behind the door. Lord please, keep my father safe I muttered. I’m not ready to take such huge responsibility, perhaps I don’t even want to. That is a shoe so big I don’t want to fill it at all. That shoe belongs to my dad so he had better keep wearing it
