Adam’s POV
*
*
we finally arrived at brooks hotel..
it a very enormous and classy hotel for the rich..
40% of the the staffs and people lodging in the hotel are whites,the environment was designed with beautiful colorful flowers, there’s even a huge flower carved with the name BROOKS HOTEL..
*
my sister,Chioma and I walked to the back of the hotel,where we saw lots of her friends and the celebrant’s friends, some of them we’re holding red cups standing beside a large pool designed as the shape of a heart..
*
Chioma: wow this place beautiful
*
Hilda: uhm both of should sit here and wait for me lemme go and tell my friend that we are here..(as she walked away)
*
we found a seat to sit somewhere close to the stage, we listened to the DJ as he played some songs before the show starts proper,a young man in his mid twenties was holding a microphone and talking to the DJ, I guess he must be the mc..
*
a waiter walked up to us an dropped a bottle of 33expert at our front and left..
Chioma and I looked at ourselves and bursted into laughter..
*
Adams: is like this waiter is high oo,how can he serve us 33?
*
Chioma: let taste it to see how it looks like..
*
Adams: see don’t even go there,I was told to keep an eye over you, what if you get drunk nko?
*
Chioma: I never said I was getting drunk,I just want to take a sip..
*
Adams:see your mouth like sip,whether you like it or not you’re not drinking it(as I picked both bottles and dropped it by my side)
*
Chioma: no I must drink(as she stood up to fight for the bottle)
*
Adams: Chioma behave yourself nah,and stop acting like a baby..
*
husband and wife what the problem nah(a familiar voice shouted beside us)
we stopped to look at who was talking to us and it was mj and sean holding hands together..
*
Adams: where you guys been?
*
Sean: we have been to London to see the queen..
*
Chioma:you be serious for once with your life nah..
*
mj:sorry we we’re delayed in traffic to that why we ddidn’t make it on time
*
Sean: wait o Adams(as he looked around), is this not my dad’s hotel?
*
Adams:what do you mean?,what are you talking about?
*
Sean:my dad told me he has an hotel at Ikeja but I’ve never been to the place,now am here..
*
mj:are you sure this is the place?
*
Sean:babe am sure nah,anyway am thirsty,who need a drink)
*
(we all raised our hands)
*
Adams: do they have non alcoholic drinks before some people will start drinking bear(as I eyed Chioma)
*
Chioma: stop looking at me like that jor,anyway if I can’t drink small sip of alcohol how bout you get me 5alive?
*
we all looked at her and bursted into laughter..
*
Sean: you don’t like 7 are dead?
*
Chioma: what making all of you laugh now..
*
mj:but hold on,are you sure they have soft drinks in this party? only red cups I’ve been seeing people hold since I got here..
*
Sean: Adams let go check common(as I picked up the the bottles along with me)
*
*
Chioma’s POV
*
*
Chioma: mj there’s something I need to tell you guys..
*
mj:really?.. like what?
*
Chioma: (sigh),I won’t be resuming school with you guys anymore..
*
mj:w..what do you mean?, is anything the matter?
*
Chioma:uhm.. actually,my mum and dad has decided to send me abroad to complete my school in the UK.
*
mj:what?,are you for real? (as she widened her eyes in excitement)
*
Chioma: yes,but I don’t want to go…
*
mj:why?,this is London oo,not unilag that my parents want me to go..
*
Chioma: I know but mj what of you guys,what of Adams?, I’ve not gathered enough courage to tell him,am scared of how he will react,we are madly in love with each other,am scared of us separating for long..
*
mj:(sigh),I understand how you guys will feel in this stage of your relationship but if there is trust and understanding between the both of you then am quit sure distance can’t break the bond that you guys share together..
*
Chioma: mj am scared of losing Adams to another girl oo,I just wish he can come with me,I want to see his face every second of my life,I want us to have a future together but look at what is trying to keep us apart, look now(as I bursted into tears)
*
mj:Chioma it okay, don’t cry,am sure he will understand..(as she pulled me into a hug like a baby)
*
Chioma: mj do you think Adams will never love anyone else except me?
*
mj:Chioma I know Adams, he loves you alone and nobody else can change his mind,no matter how beautiful the girl might be..
*
Adams: uhhh what going on between you too?
*
we quickly separated ourselves as I wiped the the tears off my face..
*
Sean: did anybody die?
*
mj looked at him in annoyance.
*
mj: you and Google dey fight?
*
Adams: Chioma are you crying?
*
Chioma: crying? (laugh) common am thirsty, give us the drinks
*
they handed us a can coke..
while we we’re gulping down the drinks and listening to the classic song mix from the DJ, my sister and her birthday friend walked up to us with a wide grin..
*
*
Adam’s POV
*
*
*

*
she took me to a corner for us to talk privately..
*
Hilda’s friend:Adams Hilda told me a lot about you, I hope you can impress everyone here with your talent?
*
Adams:you can count on me..
*

I turned to look at Chioma and saw a little tears on her face..
*
Adams: Chioma what wrong, why are you crying?

Chioma:Adams I love you so much(as she pulled me into a hug)
*
Adams: I love you too but is everything okay?

*
Adams: I can do this(I whispered to myself), just be calm, Adams be calm(as I closed my eyes)..
*

*
I turned to look and saw Chioma running towards me..
*
Adams: Chioma why are you here? am about to be called up stage.
*
Chioma: I just want to give you a kiss of good luck,this kiss will make you a shining star..
*
Adams:(laugh), alright if you say so (as I pulled her and we started kissing avoiding the stares from the people back stage)

*
the noise increased as they finally saw me standing with my guitar..

Chioma: my God, Adams you killed it..
*
Adams: I guess your kiss did it for me..
*
Chioma: (laugh), yes I think(as we kissed again)..

Adams:(sigh) thank you so much I appreciate..
*
Hilda’s friend:no thank you…

Adams: I have to get going now
,bye(as I left the back stage)
*
immediately I came down, some crowd of people ran to me to shake me for a job well done, some girls took pictures with me and complimented me for my looks which made my head swell..
*
while i was giving them my instagram handle, i looked at Chioma by the corner of my eyes and saw that she’s getting jealous, I quickly gave excuse and escaped from their midst…
*
we walked over to sean and mj,immediately they saw me, they ran to me and gave me a hug..
*
Sean: guy I swear you don blow,just sit down relax and see wetin go happen next..
*
mj:Adams you burst my brain oooo,you scatter my medula oblongata..
*
my sister ran to me immediately, before I could speak she hugged me tightly,squeezing the living soul out of me..
*
Adams: h..Hilda, I..I can’t breath..
she finally pulled away from the hug,I could see tears in her eyes..
*
Hilda: Adams you brought me to tears, I will never stop supporting your passion for music,I love you..
*
Adams: I love you too sis..
*
Hilda: you can go back home with your friends, I will be staying back a bit, so how much we’re you paid.

Hilda:so what of my share as your manager?

Adams: which manager?, when did you submit CV?

Adams: okay I will give you 10k when you get home..
*
Hilda:okay,just tell mum or dad I stayed back a little…
*
Adams: okay bye (as I went to join my friends who we’re already at the hotel parking lot)…
I entered Sean’s car and sat down beside Chioma at the back seat..
*
she rested her head on my shoulder as we drove into the busy Ikeja road..
but I’ve noticed she looks quite lately, I hope nothing is wrong?
