Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 35
Richard pulled a chair close to me & he sat on it, increasing my tension.
“u should go with them. I am fine here but ur girl friend needs u”, I said trying to make him leave even though I wanted otherwise.
He brought his mouth close to my ears & whispered, “Are u
My head moved immediately he talked with his breath seeping into me & I said
“Me… Jealous? Of course not. Why should I be? I
only feel that it is not proper for-”
“Shhhh”, he said,“u only need to relax”.
“I should be at work now”,I said trying to sit up & he helped me up after I refused to lay back. As he helped me to sit comfortably, I
became tenser cos he was alarmingly close & for a few split of seconds, we both froze as we gazed into each other’s eyes.
His blue eyes were so captivating
that I threw caution into d wind & satisfied d hunger of my eyes. B4 I knew what was
happening, we were inches away from each other & my eyes were not on his eyes but on his lips which was one thing that was a constant distraction
whenever he was close. The alarm went off in my head & even though I terribly wanted to explore, I shifted slightly & he got d message.
“I am sorry”, he said
I was furious about what had almost happened & opened my
mouth without thinking. “What exactly do u want from me? I now know that u are d
owner of this hospital. Is this how u go about seducing ur workers cos u are handsome?” I asked He was stung & I knew it instantly but words once spoken can’t be gathered back. He was on his feet instantly.
“I am sorry” I said immediately
“No,u are right; I don’t have any right whatsoever to try to
kiss u but I don’t go around kissing people if that is what u think I do. I just can’t control
myself with u & it is best for u to start knowing d type of
effects u have on men, though I am not just physically attracted to u.
I have not been able to get u out of my head ever since I saw u in d concert but it is obvious that u don’t like me.
Take care of u” he said & marched out b4 I could say anything.
I sat down there too stunned to speak. I wanted to cry but water just did not come out of my eyes.
I wished I had not opened my big mouth & I didn’t even think abt d hurt in his face cos it
was just too much for me to bear. Prisca entered immediately & we talked d way we usually did intentionally leaving our parents & yesterday’s issue out of it. After some minutes, she asked,
“what did u do to
I sighed deeply & narrated d whole episode to her.
“Oh my God Lina, why did u say that now? The poor guy loves
u to perdition & u made
him feel like trash” Pric said.
Prisca’s words made my misery worse & I sighed again
“I know but d words were out of my mouth b4 I knew it. I was
angry at myself for falling in love with him & I took it out on him”. I said without thinking
She gasped, “I knew it; u are in love. Wow… just perfect”, she said grinning widely. I eyed her annoyingly but kept quiet, so she later said,
“u have to apologize
to him but give him some time.
I looked around gazing at my best friend who had now become my sister, my new mum or step mother, my new father & old father or rather, step father. Prisca had spent nothing less than one hour trying to make me forgive her dad.
I was about to leave d hospital & I had refused to forgive him but Prisca has a way of making hard & bad situations simple.
I thought about everything & all he did for me when I was
nothing but a stranger & had to let my anger dissolve.
She had one way or d other united her mum with her dad & everyone with my old dad & I was internally happy; Prisca is an angel when she sets to be one & she can also be d exact opposite when u step on her
Mr Jegas came towards me & bent down beside me. “I am sorry for what I did to ur mum and u. I did what I
did out of ignorance &fear that I was about to scatter my home with my own hands. I am sorry,pls find a place in ur heart to forgive me & ur 2nd dad there, pls”.
No matter how
stubborn a person is, it is always difficult to discard d pleadings of an elder.
My anger dissolved & I rose up, wiping d tears that had come to my cheeks as I
hugged everyone Tony asked me to stay away for 2days but I was partially at home.
I wanted to see Richard to apologize for my actions but my new parents won’t let me out of their sight.
They took care of me
as one would a baby.
The real murderer of Olatunji James was taken to court was sentenced to death by
Dad, who was intent on making up for his mistakes, got a big
contract for my dad which transformed his life tremendously & I was very happy about it
I got to work after 2days at home being a Friday & everyone welcomed me. I sat on my seat in d office feeling very lonely & not quite long,my intercom chimed & Joke told me that someone was there to see me &d person prefers to
remain anonymous. My hopes were raised as I expected to see my blue eyed love but my
expectations were dampened when I saw d visitor.
