Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 8

Glory left the next morning and I sat down looking around the house

I felt bored and I decided to go to my shop

I called Alice and asked her to resume work today

I got ready and left for shop

I got to shop and saw another padlock in my shop

Could this be Jimmy’s handwork?

I asked without expecting answer from anyone

I think Jimmy is trying to bit more than he can chew

What sort of nonsense is this?

What gave him the right to lock my shop?

Was he the one that started up this business for me?

Or did he pay a dime for me in the shop rent?

What gave him the courage to lock my shop?

I asked raging angrily and I called mom Glory

She didn’t pick up the call

I called her twice and she didn’t pick

I decided to go lodge a complain in the police station

I am going to arrest Jimmy

I said and left angrily

I got to my car and drove off

I got home and was perambulating the house

I remembered a lawyer that once came to buy fabrics from me that gave me her contact

I picked my phone and searched for it and luckily, I saw the woman number

I quickly dialed her number and luckily, she picked up

Hello ma, good afternoon ma

This is Mrs Miranda

The fabric seller

Yes ma

The woman you gave your contact two months ago

Please ma I would like to see you if possible today

Where can I meet you ma

Oh, you live at ikorodu too

Wow

That’s nice

Okay

I will be there in a short while

I don’t know there but I will ask people

Thank you ma

Thank you so much..

I said and hanged up the phone and rushed to my car and drove off to where she asked me to meet her

Luckily, I met her there and we exchanged greetings

We got into my car and sat down

How are you doing darling Miranda? You are not looking bad but you are looking more slim compared to the first day I met you

Are you on weight loss tips? She asked and I smiled

My eyes saw what my ears couldn’t carry

In fact, the past four days have been hell for me

As I am.speaking to you right now, I am no longer living with my husband and that is why I called you

I want you to prepare a divorce papers for me latest today and tomorrow

Please. I said and she looked at me and smile

Miranda, whatever it is, divorce is always the last option

Have you thought about this?

She asked and I nodded

Very well ma’am! I replied and she smiled again

What exactly is it?

I met you two months ago and you told me how sweet your husband can be

What suddenly went wrong to the extent of seeking for divorce?. She asked

I never knew my husband is a wolf in sheep’s clothing

I am even ashamed to say this but I will explain everything to you

I said and narrated everything to her and she was shocked

This is unbelievable and betrayal of the highest order!

For real?

Your own blood sister? She asked

Yes Joyce! And my annoyance is that she is not even feeling remorseful at all

She even had the audacity to asked me not to go into my house to take my properties

I suffered so much for this girl

I passed through a lot cos of her

Why did she pay me back this way?

I just can’t get over the shock

Sometimes I pretend to be smiling but deep down inside me, I am dying emotionally

My only sister took away my source of joy from me

How come she is pregnant for my husband and I can’t get pregnant?

I have gone to several hospitals and I was told that nothing is wrong with me

I am even suspecting she is the reason behind my childlessness

Joyce, my anger right now is that the shop that jimmy locked up isn’t his

I got the shop myself

Paid the rent and have been building it over the years.

What gave him the effrontery to padlock it with a different key??

After everything he did to me, he still had the courage to lock my shop.

I said smiling

Don’t worry

Thank God you came to me

I will handle this case perfectly and will treat the so called jimmy f--k up

For locking up your shop, he will be accused of taking 1.5 million naira from your shop

I promise you

First of all, we will start by writing a petition to the area commander police

Zone 2

Yes

I will write a petition there

And listen, I am not collecting a dime from you

I am doing it just for friend’s sake but after the case, you can appreciate with anything. She said and I nodded

I thanked her happily and she promised me that everything will be sort out tomorrow

Go home

My petition will get to Zone 2 today unfailingly and Jimmy will be arrested today or tomorrow

Your divorce paper will be ready tomorrow or in two days time

I will try my best for you hun

Men like jimmy need to be dealt with.

She said and I thanked her happily

Thank you so much for this assurance

God bless you ma

Its nice meeting you again

Thank you ma

I said and we shook hands and she got down from my car and I drove off

I drove home happily

Jimmy has crossed the lines this time and I will show no mercy to him

I said driving happily

As for Ella, I pray God give me the courage not to lay cause on you cos I feel like causing you till you die

I don’t want to

No matter what, you are still my blood

I will leave you for karma

I don’t have anything to say to you. I said as I continued driving home happily

I got home and met mom Glory standing in my door mouth

Mom, good day ma

I wasn’t expecting you

I called you twice and you didn’t pick

Hope all is well?

I asked and she smiled

Not that much dear

I got home this morning and Monica my neighbor told me that Jimmy has been looking for me with police men

She said he told them that I tied his wife with rope and locked her in the toilet and in that case, it is called attempted murder

I am so scared to go home now

She said and I smiled

Hahahaha! Don’t worry mom

The case will be settled

He won’t do more than a dead rat I promise you

I have gotten a correct lawyer that will handle the case perfectly

I got to my shop and met it locked with another padlock

So I remembered a barrister woman that came to buy goods from me two months ago

We got talking and we exchanged contacts

So I called her and she asked me not to worry that Jimmy will be dealt with

I will call her right now to tell her to add your case to the petition that she intend writing. I said and dialed her number

She picked it up and I explained everything to her

She asked me not to worry

That the case will be handled

She told me that her husband is the assistant commissioner and I was so happy.

Glory and I hugged ourselves happily
