Chapter VII



...and the sins of the father shall be visited upon the child. Thus we shall spend our lives unshackling ourselves from the binds of our inheritance, paying for lives we never lived. Till the next generation.

I fear for those to come.



The scream ripped Voel from her dream and left her mind bewildered and confused as to whether she was awake or asleep. This is the type of state where beasts from your dream seem to escape into reality. When she opened her eyes she realized that she was not dreaming and that the scream was real, Voel sat up looking in the direction from which it came from. She turned and looked at Killy, she was out cold. Voel noticed that Ubu was not in bed and her sisterly instincts kicked in and she shot up and ran towards the end of the alleyway, fearing the worst. A sense of relief flooded her when she came the end of the alleyway when she saw the short, chubby figure of Ubu standing against the wall. She was sort of hiding and peaking out onto the street. Voel came from behind Ubu before she could pull her and some how reprehend her so she understood just dangerous the streets were Ubu turned putting a finger on her mouth to indicate to Voel that she should hush and pointed to a car parked a few meters away for from them on the other side of the street. Voel towered over her and peeked out on onto the street too.

"There, in that blue car" Ubu whispered.

"There's a woman, she's been screaming for a while in the back seat. There are two men inside, one in the back I think they are..." before she could finish Voel was already marching across the street towards the car, vexed with rage Ubu had never seen before. It was Joshua’s car. Over time, Joshua had become somewhat of a concierge for rich men with a penchant for the sadistic. When the man sitting at the back seat saw the brute figure of Voel charging towards them he exchanged words with Joshua while banging on the head rest, the back seat door flung open, a woman flew out landing on her knees and the car burnt rubber and sped away. Voel cursed herself after failing to find some hard object to throw at the fleeing cowards. But, her attention was diverted to the woman, as she didn't seem to be getting up. She just crouched on the tar holding her stomach. Voel realized that the woman was pregnant. That is what Joshua’s preferred stock. Pregnant young girls for twisted old men to lay with. By the woman’s screams, Voel realized that she was in labor.  There were cars coming so Voel ran over to her and picked her up, Ubu ran after Voel and grabbed the bag that fell out of the car with the woman and they took her back behind KFC. They rolled Killy off the mattress, she just grunted a profanity and carried on with her sleep. The woman just kept crying and screaming.

"It's coming!" she screamed. Voel was at a loss. She had no clue as to what to do so; fear crept in and it started paralyzing her. Having been a woman expecting herself, Ubu had secretely studied everything to do with childbirth. She started asking the woman about contraction frequencies and stuff that left Voel shocked and awed. In front of her eyes the little girl Ubu had been transformed into a proficient midwife. A wine bottle was broken and the sharpest piece was chosen and sterilized with Killy's methylated spirits, it would be used to cut the cord. A series of other makeshift exercises followed.

It all got too much for Voel who decided to retreat into a little corner and be swallowed by the shadows as Ubu went about her duties. Time seemed to stand still. Voel noticed that there was not even the slightest breeze. The moon looked like it stood dead still, but shined brighter. There seemed to be more stars out than Voel had ever seen in her life. The darkness itself stood guard. There were no car sounds. Nothing. It was as if the earth herself was holding her breath so as not to disturb this precious moment. A strange feeling came over Voel, longing. Not physical, not emotional, just a very deep, painful longing. She didn't allow herself to analyze where it came from. She couldn't face it. But it persisted. Voel longed for Vallery September; the little girl who was the apple of her mother's eye. She longed for little blue ponytails and lollipops. She didn't want to be Voel anymore. She crouched in the corner of the alleyway and for the first time in a long time, Voel started to cry.  So painful were her memories that it felt as if she was being stabbed. 16 times, in the heart. She let out a silent sob. But tears streamed down her cheeks. She cried for that little girl she never got to be. It seemed as though she could hear the cry of the child inside of her. That is, until she realized that there was indeed another cry apart from hers.

Voel looked up, eyes jaded by tears and right there, in the fire lit alleyway behind KFC which housed garbage dumps rats and mongrels alike, with the moon glowing and the stars laying witness, there stood Ubu, with a child, a boy, in her arms, covered with the blanked that Killy had sausaged herself in earlier. Ubu looked like some religious vision. Voel walked over, she was terrified. The thought of what was happening terrified her, for reasons she did not want to admit to herself. She stood next to the Ubu, hypnotized. In fact fact so enthralled were they with the new baby that were it not for the bin she toppled while stumbling towards the street, they would never have seen the mysterious new mother making a run for it. Voel's first thought was to run after her and drag her back but, something more intrinsic in her said; sometimes we are not ready for our destinies, let her go.

Were it not for the sizzling sun in here eyes, Killy would have slept till the next day. Her body refused to wake up though, only mastering enough strength to lift her head and scan the surroundings to orientate herself. The blurring vision made this a mission. She was, however, able to focus on two figures seated on crates in front of her. Both Voel and Ubu paid no attention to her morning ritual. This time the two of them just stared at a bundle in Ubu's has arms. Killy saw the child in Ubu's arms. Her head plummeted back on to the mattress.

"Shit, not another one!”
