COAJ CORNER: MARILYN EPISODE 6
Sorry for the long break, but your favorite Marylin continues with episode 6 as Marylin battles it out with her robber below:
…..Marilyn already concluded that she was dead and was expecting to wake up on the other side of life (For she believe there was another side), as she opened her eyes gradually, all she could see were broken glasses then her eyes started becoming clearer and then she noticed the scattered clothes on the floor, at that point she realized she was still in her shop but still felt like she was dead as she gradually asked to herself, â€œAm I Dead?â€ she looked up an realized her robber was still standing there in tears and saying but I canâ€™t, I canâ€™t, I canâ€™tâ€¦. Because Iâ€™m not a murderer, Iâ€™m not a murderer he said again as he completely broke down in tears and falls to his knees. Marilyn then realized that she was indeed alive as her robber had only smashed the glass in her shop but she heard it like it was a gunshot (due to fear) and her fear was completely replaced with an ambiguous sense of sympathy, slowly walks towards him, this time his eyes were full with tears and his face was a mixture of tears and sweat. She knew she shouldnâ€™t but she reached out to him to give him a hug as he kept saying, Iâ€™m not a murderer, Iâ€™m not a thief, God! What have I become, Iâ€™m so sorry, Iâ€™m so sorry. She hugged him tightly and calmly told him it was ok, please put the gun away and be the person you really want to be, because you are not this person. She whispered to him, this is a whole new level of low for anyone as she reached out to her tight jean pocket, pulled out a thousand Naira note and put it into his pocket saying, this should at least get you dinner. He sniffed as he said thank you ma, he got out of her embrace bowing his head and turning to leave but he stopped at the door and said hey! Marilyn shocked and confused asked with a strong tone, what? And he replied saying this place is a mess lemme help you out and Marilyn was relieved as she sighed and said no itâ€™s ok, I can handle it but he said I insist as he bent down to start folding the clothes.
