Read Story: SEASON 2 EPISODE 18

I headed back to my apartment with a more relaxed mind, invited Mr Moses {the press guy) and spent the rest of the morning, rehearsing and polishing up my story with Comfort.

Comfort however was overly helpful. She did contribute her best in making the clumsy story a believable one.

“i hope things work out fine for you” she breathed with a sweet smile.

Mr moses showed up at my apartment at exactly 1:30pm. Of course he was very surprised when i introduced Comfort to him. He asked lots of questions and equally was very professional with it.

The interview was quite a long one. Comfort really did her best. She never stammered and acted overly cool and wonderful. In the end, the journalist, smiled and shook hands with me.

“surely this story is going to make a wonderful read. There are lots of unexpected twists in it. You are lucky to have her Collaborate this for you” he said to me, nodding at Comfort who blushed. I quickly fetched out an envelope and offered him with great gratitude.

“Please manage this little token as a sign of appreciation. It’s just ten thousand Naira in there. Please i know how you guys easily change public opinion with your write ups. Please just help me twist the words a little bit, to get me public sympathy. I have been out of work for a while now” i pleaded desperately. The well built man, licked his lips and took the envelope.

“don’t worry about that. This new story will be out in two days. Just try to get a copy when it comes out” he promised, smiled and left. Comfort drew close and hugged me.

“do you trust him?” she asked. I shrugged silently.

My mother showed up by 3pm, looking very cool and important. I was very happy to have her with me. The joy in my heart was very obvious.

Comfort however was far from pleased. She simply kept to herself and did everything possible to hide from her.

“so what do we do with the silly girl?” mum asked when we were alone in my room. I shrugged.

“we are not kicking her out yet. Not until i get my job back. Just monitor her for me” I answered.

“seriously the girl looks very fine and healthy. I think she’s faking being sick to be with you. Moreover for her to help you like you told me without any conditions. I think she has something new in her sleeve” my mother muttered. I shrugged and stared back at her, saying nothing.

Two days later, my new story appeared in page two of Vanguard Newspaper with super exciting caption.

“MR LECTURER PART 2,

The Real Story Of Mr Caleb and his student”

I read the story over and over with a calm smile. Mr moses was just so perfect with the writeup. My relationship with Comfort. How i left the girl and travelled abroad. How we reunited not minding i was married. How Comfort was hurt but still in love. At the end he ended up by summarizing that it was just a love affair that went sore. A family matter that needed no outside influence. No one took advantage of anyone. Mr Caleb was just a young man with blood in his veins. He shouldn’t have been thrown out of the school” such a perfect story it was.

Comfort held me as we read everything together. Tears appeared in her eyes as she read.

I grabbed my phone and dialled the Senator’s number.
