The Indigo Glass
You're one of the lucky ones, Lene old girl. Look how groomed you are! I smelled your perfume before I opened the gate. You can't compare your present living standard with mine. Your husband had a better foresight than mine. I should be the one talking of killing my husband. Berenice knows that she can't love again for as long as Morak is alive. She thinks of what to do to get her life back from him. She looks into the future to see how she can be in charge of her destiny and make power change hands. This is uppermost in her mind when she gets the message relayed from the ORACLE that she should return to Guyana to atone the disturbed spirit of her family totem. But suddenly, Morak disappears. His body is found under a bridge in the area boys' zone in Lagos. The police pay her a visit. Life takes a sweet and sour turn for Berenice.
