The news of Daniel’s scholarship soon spread through the kingdom. He was so happy that at last he made it, although his parents weren’t that rich to cater from him that much. The family members will also come for assistance from his father. He loved his mother and his sister dearly, he hated his father when he turned his mother to a punching bag. The father didn’t remain the same again after the pestle had been hit on his head. After David, Daniel’s father became conscious that day, he complained about severe headache, Daniel didn’t do as if he heard all his shouts from inside. When it became too much, Gloria begged Daniel to please drop his father off the hospital, at least David had a car that he did push around. Daniel got up reluctantly and drove him there. He was surprised seeing the guards at the front of the reception door He and his mother helped his father down the car and the nurses came out as usual to help them. He was taken in and admitted, Daniel was sitting at the reception when he saw princess Ruth pondering about. He looked at her with a pitiful face. ‘What could be happening?’ He asked in him.’The queen rushed out with Ruth running after her, they headed to the palace. Although many in that palace hated the Queen because of her wickedness. She got into the palace and urged the guards and maidens to get someone that can donate the king his or her kidney. They all refused doing this, they remembered one of them that tried it for the king and died the next day. They all thought they would die after donating the kidney.‘It will be done abroad this time around not in this kingdom.’ She said. The guards and maidens continued murmuring and still refusing on donating a kidney.‘What next?’ She thought in herself…
The Queen and the princess rushed back to the hospital to check on the king and tell the Doctor that nobody was found. The driver drove as fast as he could, the queen rushed down and straight to the Doctor’s office to tall him about it.‘Your Royal Highness, you have to get,its dangerous.’ The doctor worried.‘But no one is trying to volunteer, nobody. I wish I can.’ She said sadly.‘But I can help you ma.’ The doctor said.‘Yes, any amount, I will pay.’ She said fastly with loud voice.‘I can get someone that will donate but its costly.’ He said.‘Just tell me the amount of money, I will pay.’ She said with panic.‘A million naira?’ He asked.‘Is that all?’ She paused. ‘I will pay!’ She exclaimed.‘Okay, just take It easy, please ma!’ He said with concern.‘I want to see him.’ She said quickly ‘You can go ma.’ He said. The doctor smiled when he left. ‘I’m gonna get manie!’ He said and laughed. Daniel was looking at the princess where he was, he stood up and moved near her. ‘What’s happening here please.’ He inquired softly. The princess looked at him, she thought if she should d–n him or at least answer him. ‘The King is ill.’ She said and faced front.‘Ill?’ He said and wondered.‘Yes!’ Princess shouted. He was scared at her shout and went back to sit down quietly. Ruth thought in her that it was wrong of her to do that, she went near he was sitted and sat with him.‘I’m sorry please, its not my fault, we need a donor critically.’ She said soberly.‘Donor? Kidney?’ He asked.‘Yes.’ She replied.‘I guess I can help.’ He said.‘What!’ She wondered.
