The Trinity Episodes 4&5



THE TRINITY
EPISODE 4


Luckily, the driver had seen her on time and applied his brakes. By the time the car hit her, it was a very soft touch. She fell down more from shock than from the impact of the accident. She had no bruises on her neither did she feel any pains. The driver knowing very well he was at fault came down and helped her.

He was a gentleman and very courteous. He helped Sophie and insisted on taking her to the hospital for check up. Sophie initially refused because she felt she was fine. After they exchanged names, Jason, the driver was able to convince her and eventually took her to the hospital.

Jason was apparently well connected; Sophie breezed through the hospital formalities with ease even though the place was busy at that time. A number of the doctors and hospital staff knew him.

Jason pushed for Sophie to undergo an x-ray and proper check up. After all the checks, nothing serious was detected.

Jason insisted on taking Sophie wherever she was headed. On their way, Sophie drifted away, thinking of Michael and totally oblivious of the man driving by her side. Jason soon noticed this and tried to get her attention.

“Are you ok? Jason asked but Sophie didn’t hear him.

“Hello Madam” Jason called, tapping her shoulder.

Sophie came to herself, realizing that Jason had been trying to get her attention.

“Sorry, come again” Sophie said.

” You seem distracted, just wanted to know if you’re ok,” Jason asked.

“Yeah I am, I just have a couple of things on my mind, but I am ok” Sophie said.

“Ok then. I am really sorry for what happened earlier today, it’s entirely my fault. I had this family issue that I just couldn’t get off my mind. ” Jason said.

“Funny world, isn’t it? We all have seem to have personal problems eating us up,” Sophie said.

Jason offered to take her on a ride around town so that they could take the time to know each other. Sophie agreed to the ride and suggested they found somewhere they could sit and talk.

“Sounds perfect to me. At least, we can have a reason to smile at our worries.” Jason said.

They immediately struck a cord and talking was easy from them then on. They talked about life in general, made fun of things and laughed all through their conversation.

They totally forgot about all that was happening in their lives and just enjoyed the moment.

Meanwhile, Nicky was pissed off by the fact that Michael seemed to have completely ignored her. He refused to pick her calls or even return them.

Rumor had already gone out that Michael was in a relationship with one of his colleagues at work. Nicky had heard of it and honestly was not impressed.

Even though she had promised herself not to get intimately involved with Michael anymore she was not pleased with what she was hearing.

Out of anger, she stormed Michael’s office just about closing time to confront him. She apparently missed her sister by just a few minutes. She caught him alone and it became a heated argument as Michael denied responsibility for her pregnancy.

Unlike her quiet sister Sophie, Nicky could be quite vocal. She wasn’t one to take things lying low. The more they argued, the more the rage in her heart grew.

“Look Michael, you can mess around with Sophie but you can’t deny responsibility for your child. ” Nicky said.

Michael tried to drive her away from his office and it turned into a bit of a physical fight. As they struggled, Nicky suddenly felt a sharp pain in her abdomen. She looked down and saw some blood running down her dress. Almost immediately, she felt a choking sensation and found herself gasping for air.

Michael soon noticed that she was no longer struggling with him and that she was fainting. He immediately borrowed the company car and rushed her to the hospital.

At the hospital, Nicky insisted that Michael should call her sister, Sophie. She wanted her by her side.

Michael called Sophie but she refused to answer his call. Sophie thought Michael had now come to his senses and was probably calling to apologize. After calling several times, he finally sent her a text that got her attention.

“Oh no! Jason, my sister was just rushed to the hospital.” Sophie told Jason. She called Michael to ask him what had happened

“I am really not sure,” said Michael. “When you get here, I am sure I can explain better”

He gave her the name of the hospital and promised to wait at the reception.

Sophie and Jason quickly rushed to the hospital together.

Michael was waiting at the reception. He was running up to her when he paused in shock as he saw a man beside her. He was not surprised that Sophie was with a different guy but this guy in question was his estranged elder brother.


THE TRINITY
EPISODE 5

Michael was waiting at the reception. He was running up to her when he paused in shock as he saw a man beside her. He was not surprised that Sophie was with a different guy but this guy in question was his estranged elder brother.

Jason was unhappy also to see Michael. On Michael’s part, the feeling was mutual.


“What are you doing with my woman, shouldn’t you be with your wife? Michael asked Jason.

Sophie was surprised that that they knew each other. She was even more surprised at Michael’s reaction seeing that he had ignored her for almost two weeks.

“Do you guys know each other? “ she asked Michael

“Oh yes, very well my love, very, very well.” Michael said.
He actually called Sophie his love just to intimidate his brother.

Sophie however was more concerned about her sister and didn’t have time to dwell on the coincidence or the fact that Michael had mentioned something about Jason having a wife.

“Where is Nicky? What really happened to her?” Sophie asked Michael.

“Well, she came looking for you at the office. All of a sudden she started complaining of abdominal pains so I rushed her here.” Michael lied.

“She is being attended to right now, but she is in emergency.” he continued.

Sophie became more agitated upon hearing of her sister’s condition. It was quite unlike Nicky to come over to the office without first calling her up. That was quite uncharacteristic.

Sophie knew her sister very well. She also knew Michael and it was obvious to her that Michael was lying. She knew he was hiding something from her and she became determined that whatever that thing was, she would get to the root of it eventually.

Jason found Michael’s presence annoying. He didn’t feel comfortable around him. They had a history of bad blood between them.

Michael and Jason were brothers. Michael was the older sibling. Their parents had thrust them into intensive sibling rivalry. Right from their childhood, they had always competed intensely against each other. Everything to them was a competition. One always wanted to be ahead of the other; either in school, at home or even in fun games.

Things got particularly intense back in high school after Jason met his first love.

Everything was perfect between Jason and his girlfriend until Michael showed up. He soon succeeded in getting Jason’s girlfriend’s attention by making Jason look like an uncaring boyfriend.

Not long after, Michael started dating this same girl and they disliked each other right from that time.

Life went well for Jason. He successfully completed his education, got a good job and eventually rose up the ranks to a top managerial position.

He never lacked anything and in no time, he found love and eventually got married.

Jason was however facing challenges at the homefront that was taking a toll on him. This was the position he was in when he had the fateful encounter with Sophie.

Having found that Sophie and Michael seemed to be in some sort of relationship, Jason called Sophie aside, gave her his contact details and left the hospital in a haste. He uncharacteristically didn’t even wait to find out the state of her sister.

Sophie had gotten to like Jason in the short period they had met. She felt comfortable around him and didn’t want him to leave. Not long after he left, she felt something was missing. For the first time, she didn’t like the idea of being left alone with Michael.

Michael had noticed some form of closeness between his brother and Sophie. He didn’t like this at all and was determined to tear apart whatever was forming between them.

As soon as he saw that Jason had left, he decided to take advantage of the moment. He felt he needed to do something, especially now he saw that there seemed to be something brewing between his brother and Sophie.

“Michael, who is Jason? How do you know him?” Sophie asked.

“Is that really important? He is just an irresponsible man who doesn’t take care of his wife.” Michael asked.

“Oh, he is married?” Sophie asked.

“…So he conveniently didn’t mention it to you? I see he wants to have his usual way with you as with his string of mistresses.” Michael said.

“Michael, he is married!” Sophie repeated.

” Yes, and not just married, he has a young son” Michael said.
