A Girl Like Amanda Season 2 Episode 2.
Two days later.
“Dr. Sheila I can’t find Amanda.” A nurse commented tirelessly as she dashed into the doctor’s office, panting hard. It seems she was running.
“What do you mean you can’t find her?.” Dr. Sheila commented adjusting her eye glass.
“I mean she is not in her ward.” She spoke again catching her breath.
“You must be joking, I thought she was dosed.” Dr. Sheila commented as she stood up immediately.
“Yes she was but right now, she is not there anymore.” The nurse said.
Dr. Sheila was initially confused at that point of time. She didn’t know what to do if it is true.
She decided to check for her herself.
She took her stethoscope and hung it round her neck before she walked out of her office hastily.
Not wasting time, she got there and saw that the bandages have been removed and the drip have been unplugged and placed on the mattress.
“Oh my word!” She exclaimed shockingly as she placed her hand in pocket and couldn’t find her purse inside.
Amanda walks around not knowing where to go, she didn’t feel safe at the hospital as she felt she was being watched every night.
She knew it wasn’t right to disappear from the hospital but right now, it doesn’t matter. She wished she had a phone to contact Maureen or Victoria.
She wandered what she was doing in her village, she remembered the place but had forgotten her family.
How she ended up in a hospital baffled her, decided to see if she could find an eatery to eat so she could replenish her strength. Then she remember she was still in the hospital’s gown.
Taking out the purse she had stolen from Dr. Sheila when she wanted to inject earlier, she checked inside and saw sixteen thousand inside. She became glad again and decided to look for a boutique where she could buy new cloth.
People looking at her strangely but she didn’t care, she just walked around for some time till she saw a boutique shop nearby, she quickly entered and bought a jean trouser and a top with a face cap and a pair of sneakers which cost her about ten thousand naira, left with six thousand naira, she decided to locate an eatery as her stomach is rumbling due to the hunger she was experiencing.
“Ma’am am here for the bill.” The waitress diligently said.
“How much?” Amanda asked her after finishing a plate of jollof rice.
“It’s two thousand naira ma.” She replied.
Amanda took out two thousand, wanting to handed to the waitress, she was stopped midway.
“Don’t worry I’ll settle the bill.” She said someone say.
She slowly turned her head around, Maureen was standing behind her standing and smiling.
Amanda quickly stood up and hugged her immediately.
“I’ve missed you.” She found herself saying.
“Me too baby girl.”Maureen commented and disengaged from the hug as she brought out her purse, taking out five thousand naira and handed it to the waitress who was still standing, looking at the two ladies.
“Her bill is two thousand naira ma’am.” She said as as she saw the money.
“I know, you can keep the rest.” She replied before holding Amanda’s hand and signaled to a guy who was standing a feet away from them. When he got close. Amanda saw it was Taofeeq.
“Taofeeq, what are you doing here. What are you guys doing here.” Amanda had to asked.
“My father sends for you Amanda.” Maureen said and Amanda nodded as she remembered Maureen had informed her a while back…

My father sends for you Amanda.” Maureen said and Amanda nodded as she remembered Maureen had informed her a while back.
“When did you guys arrive here?” She questioned.
“This morning.” Taofeeq cuts in.
“Well am glad to see you guys.”
“Us too babe.* Maureen smiled as she led her to the SUV parked outside of the restaurant.
“So why you guys?.” She asked once more once she entered the SUV.
“Daddy figured you would behave well with me around and that Taofeeq should be my bodyguard.” She answered then signaled Taofeeq to start the car engine which he did.
“So where too?” She dropped looking outside the window.
“Our hotel room. Then tomorrow we head back to Lagos.” She said looking at Amanda.
Amanda didn’t say anything else, she just shook understandingly.
“So what happened to you this past few days?.” Maureen felt like saying something.
Amanda turns and looked at her with a gloomy look then said “I just don’t remember.”
“What do you mean she disappeared?!” Olisa shouted at the top of his voice in Dr. Sheila’s office.
“Calm down Olisa, but that’s the truth.” Dr. Sheila pleaded.
“Don’t tell me to calm down alright. She is my Step brother’s only child. She is my children’s friend who are crying and disturbing me at home just because of her. Top that my step sister’s son is here also receiving treatment in this hospital. We wanted to take her home but you insisted she stays here for three days. Now she is missing!.” He yelled out angrily.
“Calm down Olisa, you’re in a hospital. I only called you here alone because you are the head of your house and you and that young man have been looking after her since she was unconscious.
“I know that Dr. Sheila but are you hearing yourself. An injured girl escaped from your hospital and no one knew about it in time. Am only worried because she lost memories of her family meaning she has no one in this village.” He said pacing about.
“You’re right. I understand the situation. Maybe we should go to the police?.” She suggested.
“I think I’ll just do that.” He said as he slams his fist on the doctor’s table.
He exited her office and Dr. Sheila muttered a silent prayer “Lord please let her be safe.”
“You woke up in a hospital with no memory of how you got there?.” Maureen questioned as they entered into their hotel room. Room 142. Taofeeq took the next room. Room 143.
“I don’t even remember why I came to this village. My village.” Amanda sighs getting tired of the questions Maureen was throwing at her.
“Your village?.” Maureen looked surprised, “I thought you said you didn’t know anything about your family or even your village?.” She stared at Amanda, waiting for her say anything.
“I lied about that. I didn’t want anybody to know my background.” She dropped feeling sorry for lying in the first place.
“You didn’t want anyone to know your family background so how did my father knew you were here then?.” She spit out almost angry.
“I told him because at that time, he was a father to me.” She looked away. She knew Maureen very well, staring at her would make matters worst.
“Okay, a year later. When I asked you about it. You said the same thing.” She was trying to keep her temper in check.
“Yea because I wasn’t sure if I should have told you then. Am sorry.” She commented again.
“Okay, fine. I totally understand why you didn’t tell me.” She said as she sat back on the bed with Amanda to her surprise, she kissed her passionately and they both started unbuttoning their clothes.
“Wait wait. I’ll should take a shower first.” Amanda said halfway.
“We’ll do that together.” Maureen replied as they resumed kissing.

“Am really worried about the girl.” Jidenna commented worriedly, the news of Amanda had reached him the day he wanted to visit her, now seated with Victor and Favour in Victor’s shop where he sells Snacks and provisions ranging from groundnut oil and and fish, the business belonged to his late mother who he took since he was a graduate of unilag, he seared for job close to five months when he was in Lagos, he came back to the village two years ago where he reopened the business him and his only younger sister, Jane is taking care of.
But Jane went to delta state to write her jamb where she stays with a friend leaving only him to run the business. At times Favour and Jidenna comes by to assist him in attending to customers.
Now is one of those when Jidenna thought to tell his friends about what he heard yesterday when going to the hospital.
Favour is Abel’s younger sister who leads a group of cultist round the village which Pius is a member and also the second in command when Abel isn’t a round.
At the time of Amanda’s harassment, Abel had gone to Onitsha accompanied by Olanre, the youngest in the sweet boys gang which they call themselves when in their usual meetings.
Abel is known to be friendly but can be deadly when trampled on, he doesn’t like someone talking shit about him or his sister, the only person he could die for, literally.
Favour was what he lived for and with similar stories to Victor, he is a graduate also from the university of port Harcourt, he couldn’t get a job for two years, he came back to his poor mother and sister when he became notorious, only to those who crossed him.
Pius on the other hand kills people like cockroaches, he always keeps his identity a secret wearing a ski mask to humiliate and disturb the community then go to church on Sunday and ushers people in since he was one of the ushers. He was arrested three days ago as the prime suspect of Amanda’s assault case.
“Why are you worried about her, it’s obvious that that she would be fine. If truly she doesn’t remember her family like you said then she would have a way out before escaping an hospital.” Victor taps his jokingly.
“He is right JD, at least now that the fool has been arrested for sure, this village can rest.” Favour added sipping tea bottle of coke and eating bread which Victor offered to his guests as they sat down with him.
It was a Sunday afternoon and they came to check up on Victor since he didn’t show up in church, they had reached his home, it was bolted shut and they figured he would be at the shop, hopefully he was there talking to a girl they call Kelechi, a very beautiful girl Victor had wishing to date for some time now, luckily she gave him her Facebook username when he asked for her phone number which gently said she couldn’t for now, he was still glad though that he would be chatting with his crush for time to time.
“But Pius really fvcked up big time. Chea I told you let’s report that guy to the police but you said no, that he is going to change. See the change now.” Victor lamented.
“I know, I just still can’t believe Pius will do such a thing.” Jidenna commented as he bow his head a little.
“Well he did, the kids said he had harasses her on the stream and she embarrassed him, he insulted her and the kids and walked away angrily. And it happens that she was suddenly attacked and you say you don’t think he could do such a thing. I pity you oo.” Favour said, her temper rising. She didn’t understand the fact that Jidenna would defend Pius when there we’re eye witness at the scene when he threatened her.
“Calm down Fay. JD na good boy him be even though him dey do stupid things.” He taps her thigh smoothly, she stared angrily at him and he withdrew his hand.
“So have they reported to the police?.” Favour asked him after sometime no one was saying anything.
“Yea, we should wait for 48 hours before declaring her missing. I wonder the day that start following that policy.” Victor starts laughing.
“What’s funny Vicky?.” Favour asked him and he became angry. He doesn’t like someone calling him Vicky, it gets in his skin.
“Favour if na play stop am biko, no make me vex for you oo.” Victor warned pointing a finger to her face.
“See this two inches man oo, comon drop your finger down.” Favour commented while laughing, that always get into Victor’s skin.
“Ashawo.” He cursed and sat down back on the bench.
“I agree, till I old you no go see my thing.” She said still laughing.
“No try me you…”
He was cut short by Jidenna who eyed him a little.
“Victor I don’t like the way you talk to Favour biko stop. No insult woman for my front and Favour no dey argue or insult man, it’s not good for a girl as pretty as you.” He gently said and Favour nodded her head.
“Na you oo JD. Na because you of you.” Victor and Favour smiled, Victor wouldn’t have done anything. She knew that or else he will have to deal with Abel her brother.
Amanda did lose her memory but only the vital or important ones. That’s what retrograde amnesia is all about, forgetting a particular place, some one or people you thought of before passing out.
So that’s the story all about. Dealing with the fact that she no longer have any memory of her family.

“So what is you’re plan now?.” Victor asked ignoring Favour.
“Am about to go to their compound and see mama.
“I’ll accompany you.” Favour cuts in
“Me also.” Victor added.
“Thanks guys.” He commented as he e leaned forward a little and hugged both of them.
“There’s something I forgot to tell you yesterday.” Maureen spoke out when Amanda came out from the shower.
“Okay, go on.” Amanda said sitting down on the bed.
“I lied, my father didn’t sent me. I came looking for you, Taofeeq escorted me after I showed him something.” She said trying to sound calm.
“Something? I don’t understand.” She commented looking at Maureen who is seated on the sofa in the room.
“I checked into the WhatsApp you talked about and that the person that sent you that video through Michael’s number is here in this village.” She said and Amanda became disturbed.
“What do you mean here in this village? No one knows of this village except your dad and Michael, no one knows am from here.” She said standing up immediately.
“I think he tracked you here through your phone like I did.” Maureen silently say looking closely at Amanda.
“You tracked my phone?.” She asked then flashes of memories flood through her brain as blurry images blasted immediately.
She held her head quickly, an old woman’s face came to her head once more followed by a little boy’s name, she couldn’t see his face clearly but knew somehow they’re related, visions of her getting attacked by two men came into mind, Maureen scared of what’s happening quickly ran and hold her.
“Are you alright baby?.” She asked confused about what to do.
Amanda trying to remember everything but blurred images filled her head, she couldn’t place it anymore.
“Where’s my phone?.” She suddenly asked.
“We were on our way to the location before we saw you at the eatery.” She comment, looking at her as she helped on her feet.
“Get dress, we’re going to the location now.” She ordered taking out a black bralette and a black jacket after wearing a white tank top with a black penciled denim jean.
“Thanks for the clothes you got for me dearie”. She commented smiling for a bit.
Maureen who was changing into a sea blue T-shirt and a white jean shorts, she brought out a Barretta 9 hand gun from the side zip of her bag.
She checked out the capacity of it then puts it behind her as her shirt falls over it.
“Should we call Taofeeq?.” Maureen asked as she got ready.
“No, let’s handle it ourselves.” She stepped out followed soon by Maureen.
“So where to?.” She asked after igniting the engine.
“My phone, it trigger a dark memory when you mentioned it earlier. It feels I am forgetting something important in my life.” She spoke as they hit the road.
“Let’s see where it takes us then.” She blurted out then start whistling.
Looking at the GPS, Maureen took a right turn and sped up, she didn’t tell her father that she was coming for Amanda.
She look over to Amanda and watches her admired the trees and bushes for a while then gave a short giggle.
Amanda looks back at her and smiled. Looking around again, the road was really familiar, she shrieks again as blurry images blasted in her brain once more. Maureen hit the brakes at once.
“What’s wrong Amanda?.” She became disturbed.
Amanda stepped out of the car with her hand on her head, she kneels down. She was right in the scene where she was attacked and almost raped and used.
Her memory was painfully unclear as the images are still blurred.
An image of her struggling in the sandy ground flashed through her mind and she gave a short gasp before regaining her strength once more.
She knew something is missing in her life but she couldn’t place it.
“Am fine” she finally got up, wipe her knee clean and stood up.
“Are you sure?.” Maureen found herself asking but Amanda waved it off.
“Am really fine, just a little headache.” She lied.
“Headache and you behaved in such a way.” She pressed on.
“Yes , no need to worry your pretty little headache.” She reentered the SUV folded her hands waiting for Maureen to start the car.
