Catherine faced Tito fully. “You can’t want her to accept defeat, Tito. That is not the Tito I know, the Tito I know is a fighter” she mouthed. “Now, yes, Deolu might have made a stupid mistake but he loves her, he loves Laura, we all know that.”

Tito rolled her eyes. “I don’t know that. Besides, his feelings stopped mattering the moment he cheated on Laura”

Laura shook her head continuously, wishing she could close her ears against the voices. They were both defending her, both trying to make sense of the situation at hand but they were only making things worse. If only she knew what to do… If only there was a sensible solution to all this. If only it wasn’t so painful…

She swallowed, massaging her temples with her thumb. The voices of the ladies rang in her ears until she thought she might go crazy. If only she didn’t love Deolu so much, maybe the pain wouldn’t be this emphasized.

The pain increased in her wrist as tension overtook her but it wouldn’t rival the pain numbing her heart. Her eyes watered but she blinked back the tears. She was tired of the tears, it wasn’t washing away her pain.
The voices fell silent. “Are you okay?” Tito finally said in a low tone. “I knew we shouldn’t talk about this yet”

Laura exhaled deeply. “I can never be okay.”

Chris ran his right fingers over his head as he held his phone to his ear with his other hand. “Mum, how many times am I gonna say this?” he said in exasperation. “I am not getting married to Barbie, simple”
“Her name is Tricia, and yes, you are getting married to her. Just so you know, she is in Nigeria already”

Chris forgot the name the second he heard it, all he could think of was ending his call. “Good for her. I have work to do mum, I’ve got to go”


“Don’t you hang up on me, Chris”
Just then, the intercom rang. “Bye mum” without giving a second to protest, Chris hung up. He moved to the table and picked up the intercom.

“Anita is here”
He smiled. “Send her in”
Seconds later, the door pushed open and a stunning tomboyish lady bounced in. “Hey workaholic”
Chris smiled. “Hey”

Anita moved in quick strides to Chris, planting a chaste kiss on his cheek before moving to a chair. Chris grinned. “Careful with the child”
Anita smiled as she sat. She gave her swollen tummy a gentle pat. “I’m always extra careful, if for nothing but for the heavenly massages my honeypie gives me”
Chris chuckled. It had been a while he saw Anita’s husband. “How’s he?”

“He’s so happy we’re having a girl after two boys” she grinned at Chris. “But how are you?” Her smile faded. “Is something wrong?”

Chris stared at her. “No”
She rolled her eyes. “Something is always wrong whenever I find you out of your chair”
Chris had even forgotten that he was on his feet. He sighed, pushing back his seat and sitting.

“It has to be a woman” she said, looking amazed. It wasn’t everyday her flirty friend got hung up over a woman. “When was the last time you got worked up over a woman”
“Don’t go there” Chris growled, running his fingers over his half bald head.
“Wait, that was several years ago…” she snapped her fingers. “The night after Deolu got married”

Chris shrugged out of the chair again. He wasn’t ready for this. Anita was a close friend of his, he always avoided her most times because she had a microscopic gaze. She knew so much about him. She had got married and he had giving her a bit of space, not wanting to do anything to jeopardize her happiness.

“Tell me, who is it” Anita asked grinned.
Chris shrugged, turning to look at her. She looked at him, her smile slowly slipping from her face. “No” she gasped. “You can’t be serious”
“I haven’t said anything”
“You don’t need to.” she said, standing. “It’s been years, Chris”
“I know. And that’s why it’s so stupid that I still feel this way about her.” Chris paced gently.

Anita nodded gently as she moved to stand in front of Chris. “I heard Deolu and Laura are having issues, I don’t know the details, and right now, I don’t care.” she whispered. “So, let me guess; you think it’s fate?”

Chris swallowed. He took a deep breath. “I don’t know what I think”
“Let me tell you what I know. I know Laura loves Deolu, and you deserve someone who loves you and only you. I know you are sorely tempted to pursue Laura but I also know you won’t because you would never betray your friend.”

Chris turned away, staring out of the window. “I think you have too much faith in me, Anita.”
