Must Read: Inseparable - Season 1 - Episode 19
Femi Fadeyi patiently waited for Chief Olatunbosun in the Living room watching a Tv show and sipping wine. After about twenty minutes, Chief Olatunbosun finally showed up.
“Governor Femi Fadeyi” he hailed, smiling cheerfully as he walked into the living room.
” How are you?” He asked, extending his hand to Femi for a handshake.
“I’m fine sir, thank you” Femi replied happily, standing up to receive the handshake and greet the man properly.
“You can have your seat” Chief Olatunbosun said as he settled into a sofa facing femi directly. “So, how is Logi and your people?”
“Logi is fine sir, the people send their greetings”
“Oh! Say me well to them”
“Okay, so let’s go straight to business. So tell me Femi. What is your plan for the country? How do you intend to move it forward? I already heard about a lot of things you did in your state already, so I’m expecting so much from you”
“Yes sir, thank you so much for this opportunity” Femi started speaking extensively on his plans for the country.
“Bola, I’m not ready to married, don’t you get it?”
“See stop all this rubbish, it’s either we pick a date for the wedding today or you call my Dad and tell him that you are not ready yet”
“Okay, just give me some more time . I’ll get back to you”
“No, no more time to waste” Bola slammed, “let’s pick a date now or I’ll be forced to tell my Dad that you don’t want to get married to me after impregnating me”
“No Bola, don’t do that. I will get back to you as soon as possible”
“Oh! Never mind, you don’t need to get back to me, you’ll explain to my Dad when you are ready” she said and picked her bag.
Frank grabbed her by the arm, “Okay, when are you coming to see my parents?” He pleaded, “please we have to see them first”
Bola paused for a while and spoke, “when are you taking me there? I’m ready even if you want to go now”
“I have to call them first”
“Then call them now”
“But ermm…”, Frank scratched his head. “I don’t have credit on my phone”
“Take, there’s enough credit on my phone” she said handing him a phone from her bag.
“Okay” he took it reluctantly and dialed a number. After a short conversation with the caller in his dialect, he dropped the call. “My mum says we should come on Wednesday”
“Are you sure?” She looked at him suspiciously
“Yes” he replied, “we’ll pick the date that same day too”
“Okay, just remember that it must be this March” She said and walked out of his office immediately.
Frank cursed under his breath as he walked back slowly to his seat.
Things were not working rightly as he planned, he was already processing his international passport and his Visa but the money he was expecting for the sale of the salon had not come and he needed enough money to take with him.
He sat down frustrated and began to remember how he got into the mess. He remembered how they met Amarachi, how he met Bola andhow he fell into her trap. He began to think if it was really worth it to leave the city, if he was trying to escape from getting married to Bola because he didn’t love her, how was he sure he would find love where he was running to? And was he going to ever love someone else like he loved Amarachi?
He picked up his phone and after some seconds of scrolling through indecisively. He dialled Amarachi’s phone number.
“Hello Amarachi, its Frank… Yeah… How is your health now?… Please would you give me a chance? I need to see you… Please, I just need to clear some issues with you… Oh! Please, don’t refuse me, just give me this chance… Please…”
The call was ended at the other side.
He redialled the number, “Please Amarachi, just a chance… It’s really important… Okay, I’ll meet you there by four thirty… Thanks”
He heaved a sigh of relief as he ended the call. He couldn’t just run away like that, he decided to try again if he could find favour with Amarachi.
Amarachi sat quitely in her office busy with the computer set on her table. Her Boss had gone that morning on the official training trip. She was left with a lot of work to do which were not necessarily her duty.
Before Dennis left, he came into her office to say goodbye planting a kiss on her forehead before he left. He had just gone few hours and she was feeling like he had gone for years.
A knock sounded on her door interrupting her work. “Yes, come in please”
Dennis’ secretary walked into her office full of smiles as she curtsied, “Good morning ma”
“Good morning” Amarachi replied, surprised at seeing the Secretary smile at her for the first time.
“Are you busy?” She asked gently
“No, what can I do for you?” Amarachi answered, eager to know her mission.
“I brought this for you, you need to check it and add to it from your research before I print out the final copy”
“Okay” Amarachi collected the document and scanned through it.
“Alright, thanks, you may leave ” she said, dismissing the secretary who didn’t move away .
“You can go” Amarachi repeated looking up at the secretary who was standing like a small kid being corrected for doing something wrong.
“Sorry ma, I just wanted to apologize to you for the other day I insulted you. I’m sorry, I was being misled by envy. Please forgive me ma” the Secretary finally said.
“Ermmm…” Amarachi was unsure of what to say. “It’s okay,I hold nothing against you”
“Thank you ma” she curtsied once again and turned to leave.
“Wait” Amarachi stopped her. “Please, stop the ma. It’s making me uncomfortable, just call me Amarachi”
“Okay Amarachi” She said smiling sheepishly
“I don’t know your name”
“My name is Cynthia”
Amarachi watched her as she left the office still wondering what could make the secretary who had insulted her a week ago become so meek and gentle to her.
“Hi ” Ini got a WhatsApp message from an unknown number. She clicked on the profile to check the display picture and recognised the person at once. It was Sandra Benjamin, she didn’t remember to save the number when Sandra had called her.
“How are you? Are you on break now cos I’m on break here”
“I’m Fine, you? I’m on break too”
“Yeah, how has work been today?”
“Great, thanks Ini. You know what?”
“I like your personality, that’s why I want to be your friend. I barely keep friends but I saw the way you talked and composed yourself, I concluded you must be someone great to be friends with”
“Wow, thanks. Nice words”
“You’re welcome, I’m just being truthful though”
“Thanks all the same. It’s nice to meet you too, it takes a great personality to know another”
“Yeah, so how are you coping with work there?”
“I’m managing, just managing. I really don’t like working under a man”
“Why? That’s strange. Most times, Men are the Bosses in the offices”
“Yeah, I know. It’s just that most of them reminds me of my ex boyfriend”
“Was your ex boyfriend that bad”
“Yes, he was a notorious cheat and a violent person”
“Eeyah! That’s bad, I’m wondering how badly he would have treated you”
“Oh! I just thank God most of the scars I got on my body from the relationship are cleared now”
“Awww! That’s really bad. How did you get into such a relationship?”
“Just lets forget about it. What brought it fresh to my mind was seeing my Boss’ girl friend come visit him in the office last week”
“Oh! Which of your Bosses?”
“Same one you know, Mr. Kelvin”
“Mr. Kelvin? Are you sure she’s his girlfriend?”
“I believe she is, he hardly entertains unofficial visits so I strongly believe she is. I just pray he’s not abusive and does not spoil her pretty face ”
“Are you sure of what you are telling me?” Ini replied, her hands shaking as she typed.
“Lol, why are you acting so concerned? I’m sure about what I’m saying, the Lady’s name is even Amarachi, she’s fair, has dimples, well she’s really pretty”,Sandra perfectly decribed Amarachi facial features.
“Please let’s talk about something else jor. Lets talk about you and your work”
“Wait, is this the Lady you’re talking about?” Ini attached a picture of Amarachi to the message.
“Yeah, wow! So you even know her”
Ini’s phone dropped from her hand as she read the message, her eyes filled up with tears. Amarachi and Kelvin had deceived her, Amarachi must have been visiting Kelvin during her stay at home. Bola was saying the truth after all.
Amarachi walked down the stairs hurriedly, she was sure Ini would be waiting for her in the car as she didn’t get any response when she told her on the phone that she would be coming home on her own.
She looked straight to the parking lot as she got outside the building. She couldn’t spot the car. By the time she walked closer, she was sure that Ini had left already as there were no signs of the car.
Her phone rang that moment, the caller was Frank.
“Hello, I’m outside the company now”
“Okay, I’ll meet you”
She cleaned her sweaty face with an handkerchief and walked out of the gate. She looked around to find Frank and saw him walking towards her.
“Good afternoon Amarachi” Frank greeted kindly
“Good afternoon Frank, what is it you want to see me for” she replied sternly and started to walk slow to the road.
Frank followed her, “why don’t you let us go to somewhere quiet and discuss?”
“Go to somewhere quiet?” Ama paused and turned to him, giving him a questioning look. “You think I’ll go anywhere with you?
Just say whatever you want to say as we walk down to the bus stop. That’s our agreement and I’m not about to spend more time with you”
“Please” he ran after and knelt before her.”Please just give me a chance”
“Come on, whats all this? Don’t create a scene here, Please get up” Amarachi pleaded already feeling embarrassed.
“Please, let’s go somewhere so we can talk better”
“I don’t want to go anywhere with you” She replied sternky, folding her arms.
“Okay, why don’t we just have a drink at the restaurant over there?” He pointed to a place across the road.
“Okay” she replied after giving it a thought. “But I’ll only spend a maximum of twenty minutes with you”
“Thank you” he smiled.
They sat on the table, directly opposite each other.
“What would you like to take?” Frank asked
“Frank!” She snapped, “I don’t have time for all these. Go straight to your point if you have any”
“But you have to order for something, the waiter is waiting for your orders”
“Let him serve water and you better start immediately or I stand up and leave this place now”
“Okay, just get soft drinks for us” he said to the waiter who stood by his side and turned back to face Ama.
“Start”, She snapped.
“Ama, why do you hate me so much” Frank started with a calm voice and looked straight into her yes. “You never want to see me or even give me a chance”
She took her gaze off his eyes, his eyes showed deep and pain and suffering inside, he looked like someone who had been maltreated. “I don’t hate you. Just say whatever you want to say now”
“If you don’t hate me, why are you always acting harsh towards me?”
“Why won’t I?” She looked back to him. “You have a girlfriend who is dangerous and doesn’t want to see me with you”
“I don’t have a girlfriend” he replied sharply. “If you are talking about Bola, she is not my girlfriend, what happened between us was all a mistake”
“She’s pregnant for you by mistake”
“Listen, I was drunk that day it happened. You were at the party and saw me drunk. I didn’t know what I was doing, I swear.”
“Okay, you didn’t know what you were doing, sorry about that, you shouldn’t have taken alcohol at first. But tell me exactly what you want me to do for you now”
“I love you Ama, I’ve loved you since the day i saw you and since then, I’ve not been myself”
She stared at him deeply and swallowed before she replied.
“She didn’t reply when you told her it was Amarachi you saw ?” Bola asked Sandra.
“Yes, she didn’t reply anymore. Maybe she didn’t believe”
“No, she might have actually believed you.” Bola continued, “I know her, she gets to believe things easily”
“Yeah, that’s a nice trial. I should applaud you” Bola smiled and clapped her hands together
“Come on, stop teasing me. I’m not even sure it worked yet, I think it was too early. That was our first chat”
“No, you didn’t make any mistake. I’m sure she must have believed you. Even if she didn’t, it would have an impact on her and she would start to doubt Ama and her boyfriend more”
“Are you sure of this?”
“Yeah, I’m sure”
“What if she asks for proof? You know I’ve got non”
“Yes, I was coming to that already.” Bola replied and sat up. “We’ll find a proof for her if she wants one, we have to go and think out something”
“Yeah babe” Bola stood up taking her drink with her. “I’ll frustrate that Amarachi girl out of this city, if she does not leave this city, I’ll send her out of this world” She said and faced Sandra with a mean look.
“Hi sweetheart” Ini got a chat message from Kelvin
“Kelvin, is there any other girl apart from me in your life?” She replied him without regarding his greeting.
“Lol, Yes. I’ve got my mother too” Kelvin replied jokingly.
“I’m serious Kelvin, are you dating any other person?”
“No, why are you asking this kind of question?”
“Nothing, I just want to know”
“Nothing? But I think I’ve answered you this question before, haven’t I? ”
“So why are you asking again?”
“I just want to be sure”
“Just want to be sure?”
” See Ini, I don’t like all this. Why do you keep doubting me?”
“Why won’t I doubt you? What about the girl that frequently visits your office unofficial matters?”
“OMG! Ini. Have you been monitoring my movement?”
“Just answer my question, which girl comes to visit you?”
“Damn! No girl comes here Ini”
“Okay, I hear you”
“What’s wrong Ini, what’s the matter? I hate this kind of interrogation”
“Don’t bother” she closed the chat and silenced her phone dropping it by her side.
Not too long after, Amarachi walked in.
“Hi Ini” Ama greeted as she spotted her in the living room. She went closer as she got no reply.
“Dear Lord, Ini. You’ve been crying, what’s the matter?” She dropped her bag and squatted at Ini’s front trying to hold Ini’s hands.
“Come on, leave me alone” Ini replied harshly, pushing Ama’s hand away violently and standing up from her seat. She walked towards her room before she turned and looked at Ama who was on the floor looking shocked by her response.
“Where did you go last week when you were at home alone?”
“I didn’t go anywhere” Amarachi replied, getting up from the ground. “I don’t know anywhere in this city. I only went out once with Kelvin and you are aware of that”
“Okay” She replied and walked into her room.
Ama stood there shocked, wondering what could have caused the drama which was being played out.
Ini la!d on the bed and picked up her phone, she was almost regretting her actions, she wondered why she believed what Sandra said.
Kelvin had denied seeing any lady in his office and Ama denied going out to anywhere during her stay at home. With the look on Ama’s face, she didn’t go anywhere. The Ama she knew wasn’t even someone who loved to move around places she wasn’t yet used to it, so it was possible that she was saying the truth.
But why would Sandra lie to her? They barely knew each other nor do Sandra know Ama. So what would Sandra gain from lying? And how did Sandra get a perfect description of Ama?
Ini checked her phone and saw five missed calls from Kelvin, she ignored it and opened her WhatsApp application. She ignored the messages from Kelvin, she opened the previous conversation with Sandra and read through again.
She sent a message to Sandra after discovering her to be online. “Sandra”
“Hi Ini” Sandra replied after about thirty seconds”
“Who really are you?”
“Who am I? So you don’t know whom you’ve been chatting with?”
“I know, but I’m confused”
“Confused about what?”
“About what you told me”
“What’s that exactly?”
“About Kelvin, the Lady you said visits him always”
“Are you sure she’s the one in the picture I sent?”
“They look alike, maybe if I see some other pictures. I will be able to confirm” Sandra replied
“But are you concerned about that? I think we should just forget it please”
“No, I can’t forget it. Kelvin is my boyfriend”
“Yes, so I want to know if he’s really cheating on me”
“Oh please, you have to leave me out of this. I don’t want any problems with my boss”
“No, you won’t get into any problem. You just have to help me”
“No, I can’t help you. I don’t want any trouble. I made a mistake in telling you. Please just disregard this discussion.”
“No, I can’t. You have to help me find out if he’s really cheating on me. I’ll make sure he doesn’t get to know you helped me”
“But there’s no way I can help”
“You can by helping me confirm if he is dating that Lady and find out who the Lady really is”
When Amarachi got into her room, she couldn’t think about anything else except the drama that just ensued in the living room.
As she pulled off her suit and hung it, her phone rang. It was Frank calling, she picked the call after it rang three times.
“Hello Frank… Yeah, I got home well, thanks… Okay, Goodnight” she ended the call and heaved a sign of relief, he only called to find out if she got home safely and not for unnecessary talks.
Her thoughts were about drifting to Ini before her phone rang again. She hissed, thinking it was Frank calling back but she was surprised to find out the call was from an international number.
“Hello Ama” the caller greeted.
She recognised the voice at once, she was surprised that the events of the day had made her forget him so easily.
“Hello Dennis” she replied, a smile appearing on her face.
“How are you Ama? I just got this sim now and you’re the first person I’m calling”
“Oh! That’s sweet of you. Hope the flight wasn’t tiring?”
“No, the flight wasn’t tiring. It was only some things we had to do immediately we got off that made the day tiring”
“Well, it’s okay. You know, I’m missing you already. It feels like I’ve been gone for months already”
“Yeah, same here too. I miss you so much, the office is really boring without you”
“Hmm, just few days and I’ll be back” he replied with a playful tone
“Oh! You call thirteen days few days?”
“Don’t worry, it’ll end soon. How about your friend Ini?”
“She’s fine” Ama hissed slightly before she replied.
“Are you sure?” He asked noticing a change in her tone
“No, you don’t sound so”
“Ermm.. I don’t know what’s wrong really, I met her crying when I got home today and when I tried to ask what the matter was, she flared up and started asking me some questions”
“What kind of questions?”
“Don’t bother, I’ll tell you when I’m sure what the matter really is”
“So what did she say?” Bode questioned Frank.
“Nothing, she said she can only be friends with me and nothing else. I think she’s only saying that because she does not want trouble with Bola”
“Hmmm, maybe you should give her sometime then. Since she agreed to be friends with you, I think she may still get to love you”
“I believe so too”
“Yeah, but what do you intend to do with Bola”
“I’m still thinking about that, but I don’t think I’ll leave this place already”
“Wow! Better, you’re just talking” Bode cheered. “You can just accept the baby and not marry her. No marriage will work if its a forced one”
“Yeah, the only problem is how to relate this to her father”
“Hmmm” Bode sighed. “You just have to do it, I believe he is a man and he’ll understand. He’ll understand that you can’t live under that kind of marriage”
“I’ll try that”
“Good” Bode smiled and patted him on the shoulder.
After some minutes of silence, Bode spoke up again.
“Bro, there’s still one thing I’m not happy about. You have to settle your rift with Kelvin. You should know Kelvin, I don’t think he’ll ever betray you or even me”
Frank was silent for a moment before he replied.
“I know, I’m ashamed of myself really” he answered, a tone of guilt in his voice. “Amarachi told me about how Bola had also tried to destroy her relationship with her friend Ini, she told me Frank never spoke to her about me”
“Hmm, you see”
“I don’t just know how to even face Kelvin, I’ve been acting crazy to him although he tried to give me the right advice.”
“You just have to face him, I’m sure he’s ready to make up with you too”
“Yes, I am” Kelvin said with a slight smile as he appeared in the living room that moment. He stood still and stared at his Friends in silence.
There was silence for about one minute.
“I’m sorry Kelvin” Frank said as he stood up from where he was seated and walked towards Kelvin. “I should have trusted you, please forgive me”
He extended a handshake to Kelvin who was just watching in silence.
Kelvin took his hand in his and hugged him, “It’s Okay bro, we should not let anything come in between us”
“Good morning Pedro” Chief Olatunbosun shook hands with Pedro Fayemi, welcoming him into his office.
“Good morning sir” Pedro replied bending a little as he took his hands in his as a sign of respect.
“Welcome, sit down” the Chief motioned him to a seat in front of his table and went to the other side of the table to take his seat. “Thanks for answering my call immediately”
“Okay sir, hope there is no problem. I was surprised when I got your call this morning”
“Yeah, hopefully there’ll be no problem if we do the right thing” the Chief continued, clearing his throat. “I don’t think I’ll be able to provide support for that your boy Femi, he’s not a good choice”
“What happened sir? Did anything go wrong in your meeting yesterday?”
“No, nothing went wrong. But I believe that guy is going to fight against us if he gets there. He’s too focus on doing the right thing, he won’t favour us there”
“But I think we can give him our terms and conditions”
“No Pedro, you don’t do things like that. From the conversation we had yesterday, the guy’s gonna block some loopholes in the system that favours us. He was talking about installing another crimes commission chairman, and the person he suggested is an enemy of ours.” The man paused and stared intently at Pedro.
“So you see, if he does not share the same ideologies with us now, he might turn against us when he gets there”
“But what If we tell him what to do?”
“Come on Pedro, stop fighting a lost cause. I can’t support that boy”, the Chief paused and checked his wristwatch.
“Sorry Pedro, I have a meeting with some state elders to attend this morning” the man stood up and adjusted his Agbada, a yoruba native wear.
They both walked out of the Chief’s office and Pedro saw the Chief off to his car with guards around them. He watched them leave before he returned to his own car.
He had barely settled into the back seat before he shouted on his driver.
“Come on, drive off dunce. What are you waiting for?” He shouted
The driver who was unsure of the cause for the transferred aggression ignited the car engine at once to prevent worse actions being taken on him.
Mr. Pedro dialled a number on his phone as soon as the car moved.
“Ken, meet me at my office right now”
They arrived at his office after anout twenty minutes drive, he walked straight into the office ignoring the greetings of his staffs. He met Ken who was already flirting with the secretary outside the office, he ignored him and walked into the office.
Ken needed no one to tell him to join Mr. Pedro in the office at once as the manner at which the man glanced at him and stormed into the office was already very instructive.
“Good morning sir” Ken greeted as he closed the office’s door.
“What’s good about the morning?” Mr. Pedro slammed. “Everything is working against us and you are there flirting with a young girl outside, is that what you did to loose Bola to a riff Raff?”
Ken looked at him without answering.
“What are you doing to get Bola back?” Mr. Pedro asked
“Ermm… I’m trying my best sir”
“You’re trying your best? You’ve been trying your best for how long now?”
“Listen carefully” Pedro sat on hod office seat and motioned Ken to sit in front of him. “Femi Fadeyi has spoilt our plans already. I think we should have prepared him well before allowing him to meet Chief Olatunbosun. Now he told the man that he intends to stop some corrupt practices and you know what that means”
“Wow! That’s bad”
“Really bad, I’m just regretting why I chose Femi at first. I should have picked some other person who knows the game better”
“Why don’t we just let Femi contest without the man’s support? Since he is already loved by the people for his good works”
“Dunce!” Pedro cursed. “How do you expect him to win? He won’t even win the primaries”
“I’m sorry sir” Ken replied, feeling bad. “So what are we going to do now?”
“The success of this depends on you, if you are able to marry his daughter, then we can defeat him. His mind is made up to give fifty percent of his investments and properties to his daughter’s husband since he has already settled his son who is overseas”
“So you see, get married to his daughter, we need his money first. Once we get the money, then we’ll use his daughter against him. So get to work Ken, get to work”
“Okay sir, I promise to get her back by all means”
“Please act fast, the man is getting more powerful and dangerous everyday. Let’s stop him fast”
“Over here” Ini called to Sandra who was trying to locate her.
“How are you doing?” She asked as Sandra opened the car door and sat beside her.
“I’m fine, thank you” Sandra replied as she settled into the seat.
“Thank you for coming. I’m really sorry for troubling you”
“It’s okay, but I don’t want us to keep on seeing on this matter again. I’m afraid of what would happen if my Boss finds out that I’m talking to you about his personal life” Ini said with a pleading voice.
“It’s okay” Ini replied, patting her gently and drawing her close for an embrace. “He won’t find out, you just have to help me. I want to be sure if…”
“Wait!” Ini paused and looked and pointed at someone walking outside, ” do you know that Lady?”
“Which one?” Sandra asked and also peeped through the car window.
“That one on white suit”
“Ermm…” She stammered, “I don’t think I know her”
“Yes” she answered more confidently and looked at Ini who was staring at her suspiciously.
“Ermm… I’m not sure I saw her face well, it was only her side view that was clear”
“Okay” Ini said unconvincingly, “that was Amarachi, is that the girl you saw with Kelvin?”
“I’m not sure, I didn’t see her well”
“Hmmm” Ini sighed, “Okay. I want you to do something for me”
“I need you to inform me whenever she comes to your office again or whenever you notice that Kelvin wants to meet her”
“Okay, I’ll try my best”
“Thank you very much” Ini smiled. “So where’s your place so I can give you a ride home?”
“No, don’t bother. I still have something to get in town”
“Oh okay, we’ll see later then. Thank you”
“Okay” Sandra smiled and got out of the car.
Ini watched her as she walked to the bus stop and got a cab before she started the car engine and drove off.
“I’ve been expecting your call since yesterday, what happened?”
“Nothing, I was just thinking of calling you before you showed up” Frank replied, faking a smile.
“Oh okay” Bola continued, “So when did your parent ask us to come?”
“My mum said we should come next week Saturday”
“Haba! Next week Saturday? That’s too far na”
“No, it’s not. Next week Saturday is just around the corner”
“Oooh! I can’t wait o. The pregnancy is already becoming visible na”
“We just have to wait. You know Aba is a long distance from here and my Mum won’t want to just receive us anyhow. She wants to prepare well”
“Okay” Bola replied unhappily, ” but I think we should just choose the date so that preparations can begin at once”
“Okay, if that’s what you want. I think you should pick a date and tell me, I’m not really good at picking dates”
“Okay, hmmm” Bola paused and thought for a while. “Lets make it on the twenty eight of march. That’s enough time for your parents to come for the introduction”
“Yeah, that’s enough time for me to decide what to do” Frank said to himself and smiled.
“Yeah” he spoke aloud, “I think it’s cool but let me contact my parents first and get back to you before we start making plans”
“Ooooh!” Bola lamented, “haven’t you told them you were getting married before?”
“I have, but you know they have to approve of my wife first”
“Are you saying they won’t approve of me?”
“No o, of course, they will”
At that moment, someone knocked on his office door.
“Come in” Frank replied the knock.
“One of his employees walked in briskly, ” Sir, we need extra hand, the waiting clients are too much and one of them is specifically asking for you”
“Okay, I’ll join you in a second” he answered her and turned back to Bola, “please I have to get to work now before things get out of hand”
“But we are not through yet”
“Yes, we’ll continue later” he said and walked out of his office to join his workers.
Bola sighed as she watched him walk out , she wasn’t enjoying the way he treated her; without giving her much attention but she thanked God for he had even agreed to married to her.
She picked up her bag and was about standing up when her eyes met his phone on the table. He did not take it to the workroom with him. She picked it and touched the power button, her face lit up as she discovered that the phone wasn’t passworded. The first icon she clicked on was the call register, she scrolled down and met Amarachi’s number in the fourth position in the dialled numbers. She navigated to his messages, the last message he sent was to Amarachi.
After reading through the conversation, she smiled wickedly to herself and muttered under her breath. “Amarachi, you’ll be so sorry after I deal with you”
Ini got home distressed, she wasn’t sure of what to believe. Sandra claimed that another girl was seeing Kelvin, she even described the girl as Amarachi but how come she couldn’t recognise Amarachi when she saw her? Or what is really because she couldn’t see her front view properly?
All these questions raced through her mind, as she settled into one of the sofas without even bothering to go into her room to take off her clothes.
A short giggle disrupted her thoughts, reminding her that there was someone else at home.
“Okay, I’ll be expecting your call, don’t forget o” Amarachi’s voice sounded louder as she opened the door to her room.
Ini stood up and set out for her room but almost collided into Amarachi.
“Oh Ini” Amarachi spoke, “welcome home”
“Thank you” Ini replied without paying much attention.
“I didn’t know you were going somewhere after work today”
“Yes, I had to meet a friend urgently”
“Alright, how was work? We’ve been talking less often these days”
“Yes, I’m busy with better things” She replied and gave Ama a look, already getting pissed by the questioning.
“May you excuse me? I have to get into my room now” She added quickly.
“Oh! Sorry” Ama replied, leaving the doorway quickly and walked into the living room.
Ini dropped her bag on the bed and started taking off her clothes at once. She was very tired and was feeling slight pains all over her body.
She wrapped herself with her towel and headed for the bathroom when her phine rang. She took a glance at the screen from the bed where it was and hesitatingly walked back and sat on the bed to answer the call.
“Hello dear, how are you?”
“I’m fine, you?”
“I’m fine too. Hope work wasn’t stressful today?”
“Not really jare”
“Alright, I called to find out what are your plans for Sunday?”
“Plans for Sunday?”
“Yeah, ain’t you celebrating?”
“Oh! My birthday?” She giggled, “not planning any celebration this year, maybe next year”
“Nothing, I just feel like it should be that way”
“Okay, if you say so”
“Yeah, I say so”
“Alright” he replied, ” but do you know I’ve missed you a lot already? I feel like having you here now”
“Yeah” she replied in a low tone, ” I feel the same way too”
“So, can we see tomorrow evening?”
“Yeah, if you want us to”
“Alright, I’ll pick you after work tomorrow”
“Okay, till then”
