    I got home and without wasting time went to check the bag properly, I empted the bag on my bed, it was my body cream, perfume, flowers, bathing soap, necklace, bangles, earrings, and other stuff, I wonder how he managed to know my body cream, what will I do with all this stuff, I cant use them.what if he initiated them, I cant oo, I returned the things back to the bag and threw it at the corner close to my waste basket.

    We were about entering the resturant when I saw gabriel coming out of the hotel building, with two men following him like his body gaurds, including that big head that gave me those things earlier today.

     

    Honney wait, I said and pulled nick backward, what Is it nick asked, thats the guy I told you about that is disturbing me I said pointing at gabriel, you mean that guy nick said still pointing at gabriel yes I replied, alright let me go have a gentleman talk with him nick said and left , walking to gabriel direction while I followed him and held his hands.

     

    He guy nick said, while gabriel who was about entering his car came down, how may I help you gabriel said, well and nick and this is the love of my life Sandra, nick said pointing at me, she told me you have being disturbing her for some time while wasnt around, so I came to warn you as a gentle as I am to stay away from her, there are lot of girls in this whole wide world so you can get youself one and leave her alone.

     

    After nic finished talking, gabriel laughed and clapped his hands, well I like you gabriel said, I like you courage and boldness, but let me tell you she might be the love of your life, I don’t care but do you have what it takes to care for her gabriel said, of course he does even more than you I cut in…

    More than me, gabriel said, well tell how, is it that toy car he has over there(pointing at nicks car) or his donstar plaza whatever he calls it, do you even realise who you are talking to, look around I own this hotel and restaurant, am the owner of classic town, can he do this gabriel laughed, or can he even affored this my car, sandr he is a no life, I can get you times two of all he have done for you.

     

    Hey gabriel nick said, you can mock me I don’t care, but I know I don’t flirt after women just like you, I know that statement killed gabriels spirit, but he didn’t show it, instead he wishpered to one of his men, who went inside his car and came out with a brief case, he opened it and it was filled with money, a thousand naira note.

     

    Well nick or what ever you calk yourself, I don’t have time to talk with people like you, he brought two bundle of money from the brief case and threw it up which fell back like rain upon us, covering me and nick, this is worst than an embarrasment I said inside me.

     

    Gabriel, I said, you might be wealthy or even the riches man on earth, but since I ave nick by myside am 100% satisfied, thanks for the embarrasment, but this money I said picking up a thousand nair note from the floor is nothig but papers, I tore it into two pieces, money can build a house and even buy a house but it can buy love or build love, nick is mine forever I said and drew nicks hand who I know must be feeling pain inside him due to the embarrasment, honey lets go .

     

    You might be couragous now, but I will do what ever it takes to have you, you are mine sandra nick yelled….

     

    Things are turning upside down rightπŸ€”

     

    But sandra seems to love nick more..πŸ’

     

    Will gabriel get his wish?

    Episode 10

    You might be courageous now but I will do whatever it takes to have you, you are mine sandra gabriel yelled.By now people have already gone to pick the money, I dragged nick to his car, honey lets leave here, I said, from tge look on nicks face I know he wasn’t happy.

     

    We went into his car and drove off.

    On our way home there was total silence in the car, not untill nick broke it, honey am sorry for what happe down there, sorry for what I said, dontbe so hard on yourself am comfortable able with you as long you always be with me and not with someone else, I promise I won’t leave you sandr nick said, I love you nick, I love you too.

     

    I got home that day still thinking of what happened, I can’t forget that embarrasment, everyone will be talking about that now, I was the reversing all that happened when NEPA brought light I jumped up and rushed to charged my new phone, I made sure it was charging and went to prepare something for myself.

    Wait girl who owns that phone perp asked, none of your business I replied, hmm OK oo, well wassup with you and that guy, that was a big time disgrace, but it was all good sha, atleast I picked 5k from the money, you picked the money I yelled, what do you expect, throwing money at my front and you expect me not to pick while I was alone.

     

    Are you stupid I said, what if it turms out to be blood money, and so f-----g what, but the money touched you na, you even picked one and tore it into two, why didnt it kill you first, and you are talking as if you don’t know that guy and his lineage, his parents are rich also, classic town is not only his hotel oo, see babe if I where you I will go after gabriel oo, I swear, most especially now that he is into you, imagine standing as the gurlfriend of a milloniare, chaii see, opportunity comes but once, move into greener pasture my sister enjoy your life when you are young ooo.

    Episode 13

    I got to nicks house and knocked on the door.

     

    He opened and gave me a soft kiss and hug as usual.

     

    A sweet aroma was coming from the kitchen.

     

    “What are you cooking” I asked sharply.

     

    Am preparing jellof rice, nick answered.

     

    This early morning, why not take something light like bread and tea, I said.

     

    “Hmmm” that won’t hold me till afternoon, I’ll be going to my store today for some investigations, and I don’t know when I will return but taking tea and bread is out of my list today, nick said.

     

    Mr glutton,see if we get married, don’t expect me to be doing this all morning oo, If you can’t take bread and tea, each morning then you rest, I said.

     

    “Hmmm” till then now, if we get married eh, I won’t take tea as breakfast again, only strong food, nick said.

     

    I laughed and said, strong food ni, are you strong.

     

    “Ah don’t try me ooh, nick said. Now that you are here please come help me finish with the food please, so I can go have my bath.

     

    “OK no problem.I went to the kitchen, while he went to his room to have his bath.

     

    ” I brought out one large onion, and sliced it so I can add it to the food at is still on fire.

     

    Few minutes later food was ready, and by now nick was already waitinh for me at the dinning.

     

    I served him his food,and also served mine.

     

    We ate together at his dinning, and after he has finished eating I told him that my dad has finally accepted for us to come see him.

     

    He was really happy, so was i, he gave

    me a tight hug and kissed me like never before.

    “Hmmmm me too, but when will tou introduce me to your own parents, I asked.

     

    He laughed for a while and said, my parents already know you, In case you don’t know.

    I showed them, your picture the last time I went to Enugu.And don’t worry after we visit yours the we go visit mine l, nick said.

     

     

     

    Next week Monday finally came, and I slept in nicks house on sunday, so we can be on time, because from lagos to benin is a long journey.

     

    I was the one who woke nick up from his sleep.

    We used nicks car, so ad to prevent all the stresd, of entering one bus to and another, and waiting for the bus to get filled up.

     

    Our journey from lagos to benin, was a tight one, there was too much traffic(hold up).

     

    It was a miracle we where able to break through.

     

    We got to benin by 2pm and went to saint saviour street, where our house is located.

    It was my little sister who first ran to me and hugged me, shouting sister, sister as usual.

     

    Ade baby(my little sisters name was Ade) see you are now a big girl ooo.

     

    By now nick was already shy, he greeted my mom respectfully and stoo d at the the door side of his car.

    I will just marry him and still continue my school, because I don’t trust those Lagos girls, let them not snatch him from me.

     

    We got ready and very early and was good to go.

     

    My parents prayed for us, as we went to nicks car.

     

    Nick dipped his hand into his pocket and gave ade(my little sister) one thousand naira note.

     

    Here this is for you, use it to buy something for yourself, nick said.

     

    Uncle thank you, God bless you ade said and bid us good bye.

     

    We entered the car bid my parents good bye and left.

     

    We got to Lagos, and nick decided to stop at his store to check it everything was in order.

     

    We got to donstar and met the shock of our lives.

     

    Nick’s store has being burnt to ashes.

    There was nothing left behind, but charcoal and ash.

     

    Some other stores close to his store also got burnt. It was a really sorrowful day in Lagos.

     

    I was confused and my eyes where heavy how did it happen, I asked ahmed one of nick workers.

     

    Aunty I don’t know it was overnight we met it like this, this morning and tried calling oga before he came.

     

    Nick hands was on his head, and all of a sudden he fainted.

     

    I and some Of his workers carried him into his car, while ahmed drove us to the nearest hospital.

     

    We got to the hospital and nick was carried into the ward, while me and ahmed where asked to stay outside.

     

    Now my eyes where already swollen, and tears where rushing out like spring water.

     

    What is all this problem, nick store got burnt and nick is at the hospital, God please save my fiance he’s the only one I have I said inside me.

     

    Few minutes later the doctor came out while me and ahmed ran to him.

     

    “Doctor how is he? I asked

     

    “Well he is fine, nothing happened to him. It was too much pressure, He just have to relax for sometime, he’s on drip the doctor said.

     

    “Ha thank God, I said and gave out a sigh of relieve. Can I see him

     

    Yes sure the doctor said

     

    I rushed into the ward so was ahmed, and met nick lying down and sobbing.

     

    I sat close to him at the edge of his bed, and saw tears in his eyes.

    That was my first time of seeing nicks tears.

     

    Honey its ok, God is on control I said wiping the tears in my eyes with the back of my hand.

     

    Nick Didnt reply me, I knew what must be in his mind, how was he going to cope with no where to get money, that must be what he is thinking I said inside me.

     

     

     

    Later that day he was discharged.

    Ahmed was the one who still drove us home because nick couldn’t drive.

     

    We arrived at nicks house and he didn’t say anything and went inside.

     

    I gave ahmed some money for transport and he left. While I went to meet nick inside.

     

    I tried all I could to console him but all fell on deaf ears.

     

    Later on some of his friends came, I knew it was because of the incidence.

     

    They came inside and sat close to nick while I went to take another seat.

    They where four in number, mike was among but I don’t really know the rest that much.

     

    Guy pleas you have to stop crying now, crying won’t solve anything one of his friends said.

     

    Where will I start from nick finally spoke out in tears.

    All is gone, nothing is left and I just used alot of money I have to buy most things in there before I traveled, not knowing it was going to be a waste nick said.

     

    I was touched by those words that tears where already gathering in my eyes.

     

    I left them together with nick in the sitting room and went to prepare something in the kitchen.

     

    I calledy parents and informed them about what happened.

     

    They where also In pain and felt pity for nick.

     

    They asked me to give him the phone but I couldn’t, he wont even collect the phone, but only cried.

     

    By evening, when everyone who came to console home left.

     

    I prepared sphagetti and served it at the dinning.

     

    Honey please come and eat your food I said to nick who was in the sitting room.

     

    I have no appetite he said.

     

    “Honey please even I’d it is small, you haven’t eaten anything since morning don’t go and kill yourself biko.

     

    “Will eating bring back all that I’ve lost nick said.

     

    “Will starving yourself now bring back anything I said, just take a little or don’t you like sphagetti? I asked.

     

    “Baby rest yourself I can’t eat now, today is the worst day of my life and I wished I could reverse all this back to normal, nick said and went to his room.

     

    “Honey come back and eat oo, I don’t like all this, you haven’t eaten since morning and you don’t want to eat

    Ohooooh I groaned I frustration

    I stared at the food for a while and covered it with a flat plate and went to meet nick inside.

    Episode 16

    That day we both went to sleep with empty stomach due to what happened.

     

    The next morning I prepared bread and tea with fried eggs for breakfast.

     

    I was really hungry that I rushed the food, while nick ate not much. At least something is in his stomach.

     

    He still continued with his mood since yesterday. I was already tired of all that is going on why will this happen at this time.

     

    Why does the devil like to interfere in someone’s happiness, if only I could stop all this and bring back nicks shop so we can be happy again I said Inside me.

     

    Later that day I decided to go check on my apartment and maybe return by evening so as to be with nick, in order for him not to do anything crazy.

     

    I got to my apartment and fell tirelessly on my bed. Just then my phone rang it was Nancy.

     

    πŸ“²me : hello

     

    πŸ“²nancy: babe how far

     

    πŸ“²me: hmmm fine oo.

     

    πŸ“²:I heard what happened, am so sorry how is nick?

     

    πŸ“²me:he’s fine oo. Hmm

     

    πŸ“²nancy:are you at home

     

    πŸ“²me: yeah

     

    πŸ“²nancy:alright perp and I will join you soon.

     

    πŸ“²me:ok.

    Phone hangs……

     

    I gave out a big sigh and relaxed I was so tired.

     

    Few minutes later perp and nancy arrived, they sat close to me on my bed.

     

    Babe like seriously how did it happened nancy said.

     

     

     

    I don’t even know my sister, we just returned from Benin and met the whole store burnt to ashes, only God knows how come.

     

    Whether its someone handwork or natural only God knows I said.

     

    Eeyaaah kpele perp said.

     

    “Ah poor nick going through all this, what a pity nancy said.

     

    what about your visit to Benin, how was it? Perp asked.

     

    Fine oh, but I can’t talk about that now at all, I tired and I came home to have some rest before going back to nicks house.

     

    I had sleepless night yesterday because of this recent incidence, so please I want to rest because I know you like gist too much I said and lay back on my bed.

     

    πŸ’˜ Two weeks laterπŸ’˜

     

    I was in the kitchen about to prepare rice and beans for Nick.

     

    I opened the rice bag and to my greatest surprise there was nothing in it.

     

    I went to meet nick in the sitting room.

     

    “Honey I said, there is no more rice in this house and I wanted to prepare rice and beans.

     

    “Nick looked at me in a sad face and said. That was what I was trying to point out. There is nothing in my account but 50 thousand naira how long will that last, I pumped all my money in buying new expensive product which many of my customers asked for, and I know it will yeild great profit.

     

    But I lost it, all I have is this house and the 20k nothing else. I have nothing to show, I have to start from grass nick said.

     

    Why would you done such a thing, aleast you should have not used all the money into buying of all the stuff.

     

    That’s how I always run my business, this is not my first time, I run big business which requires alot nick said.

     

     

     

    I was dumbfounded and confused, does this means we are going to suffer, does this means will have to start again all this where going on fire inside me as I walked slowly into the kitchen.

     

    God please intervain, please see us through, help us lord i said. I later prepared beans which nick only ate because I hate beans.

     

    Through out that day I wasnt myself, how can this be happening now. The wrong thing at the wrong time.

     

    I was lost in thought all day, life would be hard now, and I can’t leave nick alone he is now my fiance.

     

    And am just a student who doesn’t even work, let alone having money. I thought I have found a place to rest my head not knowing it won’t last forever.

    Episode 17

    Nancy and perp visited me and I told them all that was going on.

     

    Hmm babe you are going to suffer oo,Nancy said and you can’t leave him OK now that there is a ring on your finger.

     

    Me suffer I reject, God will find a way for us, I can’t suffer oo God forbid.

     

    You won’t suffer jare, perp said no matter what be what him, he has tried for you, so be with him on this hard times, nothing last forever.

     

    Hmm but suffering can, nancy said.

     

    Later that day I prepared pounded yam and okro soup and dish it in a cooler and went off for nicks house.

     

    I got to his house and nick was not at home, I called him and he told me he was on his way that I should wait for him.

     

    I sat outside and waited for him.

    Few minutes he arrived and he was not with his car.

     

    Honey what happened to your car, did it disappoint you somewhere.

     

    My car nick said I’ve sold it to raise money, that its where Coming from.

     

    What is the use of it anyway since my legs are not paining me he said.

     

    But honey why did you do that, you are not supposed to sell it I said.

     

    Hmmm now that life has arrested me, I don’t have anything now so should I kill myself of huger because of car no na, just understand please let’s go inside he said opening the door.

     

    Why would he sell his car, its like Nancy is right oo, suffering is knocking, but I can’t open for suffering to come in.

     

    God please we need your help now please.we went inside and I served him the food.

    Episode 18

    Throughout that day at my apartment I wasn’t myself, why would nick sell his car. This means all I gone. I have suffered alot with my parents too much, now I will still gonna continue.

     

    God please I need your help and intervention, please lord help me and my fiance.

     

    All this where going on in my mind when I heard a knock on the door. Who is it? I asked.

     

    Its me a faint voice said from outside, I already knew it was nancy, come in I replied.

     

    The door opened and nancy rushed in happily. Babe, babe am so happy right now, nancy said with her teeth wide open.

     

    “Ah babe wassup did mike propose I asked with concern.

     

    “Propose? Propose ke, metcheew… Propose fire nancy said.

     

    “Ah then what’s all this excitement all about I asked.

     

     

     

    “Hmmm babe my boo just got me a car, although its not a new one, but am expecting something much better next time nancy said.

     

    “Wow babe you are lucky oo, do you think is easy to buy okada let alone a car.

    Mike is really trying for you oh.

     

    Mike ke, which mike, I got this from Desmond, he’s one of my boyfriends in case you don’t know. Nancy said.

     

    “Haha nancy, dating two guys at a time, including that good for nothing Desmond, what if mike finds out.

     

    He will never find out, nancy said. See that Desmond you are calling good for nothing bought that car from your fiance. Coolval stories

    Am sorry to say this o, so you won’t say I didn’t tell you when am cruising it around town. Nancy said.

     

    Wait nancy you mean, Desmond bought nicks car and gave it to you? I asked.

     

    Yes na, see that’s just one of my collection, babe this life ma sense if you dull na you fail. Nancy said.

     

    I was shut of words, my finance’s car now belongs to my best friend. This is a pure embarrassment, why would nick sell his car to desmond, why not someone else.

     

    Babe see, nancy continued, in this life you need to depend on more than one thing. If nick have gotten more than one business he won’t feel anything when donstar for burnt.

     

    What are you trying to say? I asked.

     

    What am trying to say is you have to get another man without letting nick or anyone else find out, just like me, you don’t have to depend on only nick, you can get another and enjoy life while you can’t still be with nick. Nancy said

     

    Nancy can you just hear yourself talk? How do you expect me to follow someone else when am engaged, nick will certainly find out.

     

    “hmmm miss engagement, wait till he sells his house and come and join you in this one room before you’ll realize what you are into. Nancy said.

     

    See am not saying you should quit him, you can still be with him, but you need more freshing up, you need enjoy life as you are young, not suffering while you are young is it when you are old and no teeth that you will enjoy?.

     

    See you have Gabriel a man who loves you, he doesn’t find interest in me at all but you only. Just accept him enjoy his money then zoom off to nick for your wedding that’s all.

     

    I was just silent I was d--n confused, is Nancy telling the right thing or wrong, I don’t even know which path to follow.

     

    See babe, nancy continued, in this life you need money, that’s why David o said that “love is sweet o, but when money enter love is sweeter”.

     

    You still gat opp opportunity, if you like take it and if you like leave it. I’ve given you my advice but as for now I want to go cruise that car around town.

    What about we go together its gonna be fun and don’t panic I will settle the bills. Nancy said.

     

    Never mind am fine,maybe some other time I replied.

     

    Cmon I know you too well, If its because its your fiance car don’t just worry yourself. Nancy said.

     

    I some other time I yelled not today at all I need to just rest my head.

     

    Hmmm ok if you say so, lemme go ask perp, and we bring you takeaway, see ya.

    She said and locked the door.

     

    Bam confused right now, its like nancy have a point, but nick will find out and stop our marriage. Look at nancy now have a car and I have none only this iPhone nothing else. Its like i’ll try my luck and also help nick too.

     

    The next day I was off too the salon to make my hair without asking for a dimeb from nick.

     

    I don’t want him to start thinking of what happened again so I have to use my money.

     

     

     

    I made packing gel, because it wasn’t expensive. And hopped out of the salon waiting for bike to go home.

     

    Because I won’t visit nick today, the transport fee are really eating me up And staying at his house will put more expenses on him.

     

    I was the waiting for okada by the road side with my stomach boiling bcos of hunger when a black Benz stopped in front o me I alredy know its Gabriel.

     

    Wassup my angel how are you he asked

     

    Am fine I said facing another direction to avoid eye to eye contact.

     

    Well am sorry about your boyfriend loss, pray God provide for him.

     

    Amen I replied.

     

    Ok you look hungry what about we go have launch at my restaurant.

     

    Just then my mind flashed back to what nancy said yesterday, should go with him,what if nick find out I was so lost in thought

    Episode 19

    Just then my mind flashed back to nancy’s advice. Is this the opportunity I have. What If nick finds out.

     

    Well I didn’t murder anyone, its just lunch I said to my self.

     

    Ok we can go for lunch I replied. I know he must have wondered why I accept to go with him but i don’t care.

     

    I entered his car and we zoomed off for his restaurant.my heart was beating fast that if you can hear it you can easily dance to it.

     

    We arrived at classic town and went to the restaurant section.

     

    We sat together facing each other while Gabriel called one of the waiter.

    He wishpered into his ear and he left without asking me what to eat.

    Only God knows what he told him.

     

    So tell me how did it happen, nick asked.

     

    How did what happened?

     

    I mean how did the store got burnt overnight nick asked again.

     

    Please can we not talk about that now.

     

    Oh alright he replied.

     

    Just then, the waiters walked in carrying different trays. One was dropped in front of me while the other for Gabriel. With different kinds of drinks.

     

    It was like a feast table, due to the kind of drinks that was set in our table.

     

    I opened my plate and it was fried rice and jellof rice together and a big lap of chicken which can be used to serve two people.

     

    “Hope you like it nick said with a bit g smile on his face.

     

    “Yeah sure I replied.

     

    “Ask for anything you want if that’s is not enough this is my restaurant, feel free.

     

    Everyone was just staring at us, while some where hailing him, with big names like odogwu.

     

    We started eating and I didn’t look at his face throughout because I was really shy.

     

     

     

    Later that day he drove me home and I make sure he didn’t drop me in front of my apartment to avoid being seen by those gossipers who won’t mind their business.

     

    I got to my apartment and fell on my bed. I can’t believe am really doing this, upon all the promise I made to myself and nick not to go for Gabriel is what am now doing now.

     

    Well atleast am not dating him, I just want his money that’s all then get married to nick as usual.

     

    The next day I went to visit nick. I knocked on his door for a long time before he finally opened.

     

    We hugged and kissed as usual. What took you so long to open the door I asked?

     

    Am so sorry I was sleeping and didn’t hear you that’s why.Nick said

     

    Alright have you eating M?

     

    Yeah, sure I ate yam and egg. O didn’t see you yesterday what happened nick asked.

     

    I was scared, what if he had seen me yesterday.

    Hmm nothing I just decided to let you rest, without disturbing you thats why I didn’t come.

     

    Alright then, hmm baby I’ll like us to fix a date for our wedding please, nick said.

     

    Wedding, uhmm babe I think that should be put to a halt first until you recover other things. I don’t want to put you in more expenses now because of our wedding. Am here for you. I said.

     

    Hmmmmm OK if you say so… Nick said.

     

    πŸ’˜A week laterπŸ’˜

    I was already enjoying life with Gabriel, although we are not dating, but I made sure nick didn’t know about us.

     

    My plan was to eat his cash and move to nick just like Nancy did. But was always watching his steps to avoid regrets.

     

     

     

    I was in my apartment chatting with nick on WhatsApp when Nancy and perp barged in.

     

    “Hey why didn’t you guys know, this is my room not a market place where you can walk in as you like.

     

    “Sandra am very disappointed in you perp said sitting down on my plastic chair.

     

    What do you mean I asked looking at perp.

     

    I thought you love nickbso much, why going around town with Gabriel she asked in a angry manner.

     

    Is that why you bardge into my room like that I asked

     

    Help me tell her, madam Mary amaka Nancy said.

     

    See perp lemme tell you, I love nick. So much, buy that won’t make me suffer all because of love, and about Gabe am not dating him and just enjoying life with him that’s all since nick is now broke.

     

    Sandra are you not ashamed, I know I do telk you to go for Gabriel but not now, if you want to leave him you should have left him when he was still rich not now when he needs you very much. Perp said

     

    See perp if you came here to tell me about my relationship please use the door and never return.

     

    Wait Sandra I should do what perp asked.

     

    She said you should use the door madam Mary and don’t return Nancy said.

     

    Just then perp got angry and left my house without saying a word leaving me and Nancy.

     

    Just then my phone rang, it was Gabriel, I picked the call and he told me he will take me out by evening and I should get ready by 4pm.

     

    I was really happy so was Nancy, am still going to party, for a long time now.

    By evening Gabe came to pick me uup and we left to have fun.

     

    The next day as usual I went to see nick, that how I do it so he won’t suspect one day for Gabe one day for nick.

     

    I got to nick house and I wanted to hug him as usual but he pushed me aside.

     

    What was that for I asked.

    Just start talking where you went to yesterday night. Nick said

     

    I was dumbfounded has he caught me….

    Episode 20

    You better start talking where you went to last night nick said.

    I was dumbfounded has he caught me, or is he trying to find out?

    Speak now or else, nick yelled. That was the first time nick has ever yelled at me.

    Oh yesterday I was in perp’s place. I said as if nothing happened.

    You where at perp place, so you have started telling lies abi, nick said. Am going to ask you for the last time where we’re you yesterday nick asked again.

    I said I was at perps place why all this this questions I replied frowning my face.

    But before I knew what was happening I received a hot slap on my cheek which made me fall down on the chair.

    That was the first time nick has ever slapped me, the slap was so hot and painful that tears begin to run down my cheek.

    My parents have never slapped me light that before. Nick you slapped me I said in tears.

    And I will do that again if you do not tell me where you and that prostitute you call a friend went to yesterday.

    I became furious, that I didn’t care what was about to happen.

    Fine I was with Gabriel yesterday I replied bravely without a grain of fear.

    That statement made nick’s eyes widened. I knew it he yelled out. I knew that you have already gone deeper than I thought.

    You call yourself my fiance and you are going around with another guy all because of money.

    Hey hey hey I interrupted what is it, why all this fiance this fiance that. Haven’t I done enough, have I not showed you my love enough besides am not even dating him and you are shouting.

    See I appreciate all you’ve done for me fine, not all this, ever since your store got burnt have you ever taken me out, have you bought me anything new, have you even paid for my transport I spent in coming here. Do you even know how I feed now, No tell me I said bravely.

    Now that I have moved to greener pasture and you are shouting.

    Wait Sandra are you talking to me like that nick asked with his eyes red.

    I don’t care, my parents haven’t slapped me like that and you have already slapped even when we are not even married, excuse me I said carrying my bad and matched out of his house while he was busy calling my name.

    I knew it must be perpetual’s hand work. And she is going to pay for it I said a I walked out of the house.

    I went to perp house and luckily she was about going out and I caught her I gave her the same slap nick gave to me.

    So you have the guts to report me to nick abi I said as I gave her another slap.

    We fought in her compound if not for her neighbors I would have thought her a bigger lesson than I wanted.

    I was like a mad woman that day, I didn’t know what came over me, I got and sat on my bed reversing all that happened earlier.

    Just then my phone rang. It was my dad, I picked the call…

    Me: papa good afternoon

    Dad: what is good about the afternoon ebere

    Me: I don’t understand you papa.

    Dad: so I sent you to school to learn and you went around flirting with men like a harlot.

    Me:papa why all this na.

    Dad: you got engaged by nicholas and I accepted, who is the guy you are now moving with eh ebere.

    Me: papa nobody (I pretended as If nothing happened) .

    Dad: so ebere you are now lying, Nicholas is the only one I regard as my son in-law no one else. Why can’t you realize you are throwing away diamond and picking stones.

     

    Me: papa its my life, and that’s how I want to leave it.

    Dad.:you re an idiot, I regret having a daughter, because of his condition you are flowing someone else, you are a disgrace ebere. As a matter of fact I caught you off as my daughter don’t come to this house except you go back to your rightful husband.Ewu(goat).

    Phone hangs….

    Hello papa hello

    All this people should leave me, Its my life I want to enjoy it..

    Episode 21

    I was angry and threw my phone at the edge of the bed.

     

    Quitting nick wasn’t part of the plan oh. All I wanted was to eat gabriels money and move to nick.

     

    But that slap He gave me changed the topic. Even my father have never slapped me like that before.

    How does he want me cope when my parents can barely send me a dime.

     

     

     

    I can’t be a wife material hundred yards, two yards Is enough biko I said to myself and lyed down.

     

    My phone rang and it was Nancy.

    πŸ“²Me:hello

     

    πŸ“²Nancy:babe why did you beat up Nancy like that?

     

    πŸ“²me:I won’t I beat,did you know what that little brat did?

     

    πŸ“²Nancy:what did she do?

     

    πŸ“²Me:she have the guts to report me to Nicholas, about me and Gabriel.

     

    πŸ“²Nancy:eh eh, I knew we should no have trusted that girl. Anyways Gabe will be taking us out to the club today an he insist you join us.

     

    πŸ“²me: am in a very bad mood today am not sure I cam make it.

     

    πŸ“²Nancy:see no excuses today, you are coming with us and am the one who is gonna pick you up by 7pm or 7:30.See you later.

     

    Phone hangs.

     

    Ever since I started following Gabriel I have never gone to club with him because I don’t want nick to find out, but how that the secret is opened today is gonna be different.

    Today is gonna be my first time with him

     

    By 7:30pm I was already set for the party, I wore a short red pencil gown with a strip at the back, and black heels.

     

    Nancy finally arrived by 8pm and came to meet me inside.

    Nancy was dressed like a semi harlot.

     

    What are you wearing I asked.

    Dress of course, she replied, please don’t comment on my dressing because I love it this way.

     

    But nancy you’ve never dressed like this to a party before I said.

     

    I guess people change, and enough of all this talk let’s go she said and went out while I followed her after locking my door.

     

    We got to the party and met Gabe and Desmond waiting for us.

     

    They sat together leaving two empty seat which nancy and I later occupied.

     

    The table was filled with different kinds of alcoholic drinks, cigarettes, and alcoholic wine.

     

    Well welcome ladies Gabriel said you can ask for anything and get settled.

     

    They started drinking while I stared at nancy in amazement as she removed one stick of cigarette lighted it and started smoking. O never knew this girl has gone wide.

     

    Babe why are you not drinking Gabriel asked.

     

    Nothing actually, its just that I’ve never smoked or drink anything alcoholic before I replied.

     

    Just then they all started laughing including nancy.

     

    What’s funny I asked?

     

    They still continued laughing until Gabriel finally said You are not serious right?

     

    Of course I am I replied.

     

    You are at this age and you don’t drink or smoke you are really funny Gabriel said.

     

    Well girlfriend since you haven’t done it before then you have to give it a try. There is a first time for everything girl.

    Nancy said as she finished a glass filled with an alcoholic wine of which I don’t know the name.

     

    She filled another glass cup with the same wine and handed it over to me, here try it, it’s not bad nancy said.

     

    I looked at Gabriel and Desmond who where telling me to try it. My dad or nick have never smoked or drink in front of me but here I am doing it.

     

    Well atleast its not bad, I collected the glass from nancy and sipped a little from it and dropped it on the table.

     

    I tightened my mouth and my cheeks folded due to the taste of the drink.

     

    Now how is it Gabriel said. Well you get used to it. Now try the cigarette Gabe said.

     

    No I can’t, I just can’t I replied.

     

    Why Gabe asked.

     

    Because smokers are liable to die you.

     

    They all started laughing again, why haven’t I did since am young Gabe said.

    See you need to shine your eyes and start leaving a morden life like us. Not all those stupid fairly tales.

     

    Here try it, you won’t die, its just to satisfy the body Gabe said.

     

    He lighted the cigarette and handed over to me. Nothing will happen to you I promise.

     

    I collected the cigarette and looked at their faces and then sipped it.

     

    I quickly throw it on the table and quickly coughed out a huge smoke.

     

    I almost fainted because of hard coughing. They where petting me and also laughing at me while Gabe was using his hands to rub my back.

     

    That doesn’t feel good at all I said still coughing. That’s how it is for the first time nancy said.

    Episode 22

    I finally got home that day at midnight.

    Thanks to Gabriel who dropped me at home, although he insisted I spend the night in his house which I refuse.

     

    I was so tired and my stomach was really disturbing me, because of what I drank.

     

    I managed to sleep that night.

     

    The next morning was on the 1st of July. And guess what it was my birthday.

    I woke up early morning and upload it on social media.

     

    Gabriel didn’t even call me to wish me happy birthday although I told him at the club yesterday.

    .

    I was confused and feeling guilty of myself. If it was nick he would have done alot for me today.

     

    Time was going and I didn’t see Gabriel or his call, I was really sad I kept checking phone to see if there was a message from Gabe but none.

     

    I rolled about my bed thinking of how today is going to end without any birthday gifts like before.

     

    Just then my phone rang it was Gabriel, I looked at the time and it was half past 1pmalready.

     

    I picked the call in a angry manner

     

    Me: hello

     

    Gabriel:hey babe happy birthday sorry I’ve called I was kinda busy

     

    Me:ok

     

    Gabriel:well am outside your apartment come out.

     

    Me:Hmmm why?

     

    Gabriel :just comeout and see.

     

    Me:ok

    Phone hangs.

     

    I wore my slippers and went out to meet Gabriel. Only God knows why he said I should come out.

     

    I got outside and met Gabriel and Desmond with two cars parked outside. One was Gabriel’s Benz and the other was a new Lexus jeep.

     

     

     

    Happy birthday baby Gabe said as he came close to me and kissed me on the cheek.

     

    Why did you ask me to come outside I asked.

     

    Well you see that baby over there he said pointing at the new Lexus. Its yours darling.

     

    Wait are you kidding or what I asked.

     

    He smiled and said, am not kidding. he gave me the car key.

     

    I was speechless, am now a car owner I shouted as I ran close to the car and observed it. It was d--n cool.

     

    I opened the car and sat inside this is wonderful I said. I ran to Gabriel and gave him the biggest hug and kissed him.

     

    Well babe this is just the beginning. Go inside and dress up let’s go to my place Gabriel said.

     

    I rushed inside and dressed up and went to meet them outside.

     

    Although I don’t know how f drive but it will be from time to time for me to learn.

     

    I entered Gabe car while Desmond drove my new Lexus along with us.

     

    We got to gabriel car and my mouth opened wide.

     

    Gabriele house was a mansion, I don’t know how to describe it. It was painted white and was a storey building.

     

    I got down from the car and looked around wondering if we where in the right house or not.

     

    At car park was three extra cars which he barely use.

     

    We walked into his sitting room and I met a big surprise.

     

    Nancy and some of Gabriel friends including their girlfriends where there and a big cake was set at the table.

     

     

     

    Is this a surprise party or what. Happy birthday they all yelled. Nancy walked up to me and wishpered into my ears. Now you see the sweetest life you where rejecting.

     

    I was speechless this is life paradise. I’ve finally found the right place for me.

     

    What are you waiting for come cut the cake darling Gabe said as I walked towards the car and place my hand on the knife.

     

    Now after the spelling of love you cut the cake Gabe said. L. O. V. E they spelt love and I cut the cake while they all applaude.

     

    They started playing music and everyone where dancing with their girlfriend.

     

    This time I drank that alcohol without fear or shame. I was already getting use to it…

     

    I drank alot and later danced with Gabriel that day.

     

    I was really enjoying the life I choose. I guess I have finally made the right decision for mysewith gabriel Lifw with is like heaven on earth.

    Episode 23

    Through out that day I really had fun like never before.

    I decided to pass the night in Gabriel’s house that day.

    Am night after having my bath and about going to sleep. Gabriel called me to the dinning and decided we have a little drink before going to bed.

    But babe I’ve already taken alot today, I don’t want more I said.

    It’s just a little, I don’t wanna get bored drinking alone. Pretty please Gabe said.

    I joined him in the dinning table and we both drank together and i went to sleep before him that night.

    The next morning I woke up really late. I was so tired and felt alot of pain all over my body. I thought it was as a result of yesterday.

    I looked around and Gabriel was not in the room, I tried to stand up and felt a huge pain in between my legs.

    My hand touched a soft light material at the side of the bed I picked it up and oh gosh it was my pant which I wore before I slept.

    I managed and used all my strength to stand up and found out I was naked. I removed the blanket which was still until me and found out I was defiled.

    The white bed sheets was stained with blood. I couldn’t believe my eyes. The only pride I have has been taken away.

    I screamed at the top of my voice and Gabriel rushed in. What happened he said in a shocked manner.

    I Couldn’t utter a word and tears began to roll down my cheeks.

    Are you crying because of that have said. Am sorry I didn’t know you are a virgin, am sorry he said as he walked close to me and held me to himself.

     

    Tears continued to rolled down my cheeks more and more, my virginity is finally gone over night after years of keeping it.

     

    Look, don’t be so hard on yourself honey I was the one who put a sleeping drug in your drink last night. Go clean yourself up Gabe said.

     

    He helped me up to my feet and I walked tirelessly to the bathroom for a clean up after that mess.

     

    After the bath, I wore my dress still feeling the pain so much, and I still went to bed, Gabe has already changed the bedsheet.

     

    Gabriel returned to the room and few minutes later with a big tray. He placed the tray on my lap and sat close to me rubbing my back.

     

    . It was a hot tea fried egg, bread and others.

    I managed to eat a little from it and went back to lie down. I was just thinking of how Gabe could have s*x with me secretly.

     

    Later that day I overheard Gabe telling someone on phone not to come now that he is busy. Only God knows who it was.

     

     

     

    The next day the pains where finally going away than before, I secretly took his phone to check who he was talking to yesterday and it was not a Nigeria number.

     

    It was saved with Michelle, I wanted to go through his photos.

    What are you doing a voice said from behind as I quickly looked back in shock it was Gabe.

     

    What are you doing with my phone Gabriel asked.

    Who is Michelle I fired back.

     

    Michelle, Michelle is my junior sister and why all this silly questions.

     

    Nothing just wanted to find out i said.

     

    OK but next time let me know I you want to use my phone Gabriel said and collected the phone from me.

     

    πŸ’˜A month laterπŸ’˜

    I couldn’t find my period, weeks and weeks added and I still couldn’t find my period.

     

    That was to confirm that I was carrying Gabriel’s child. Ever since he defiled me he has being treating me nice than ever.

     

    But I don’t know if he would be happy with what is going on.

     

    I waited for him at the sitting room, because he was upstairs dressing up to go out.

     

    He finally came out, babe please wait we need to talk I said.

     

    About what, am in a hurry and it is about 2pm already.

     

    Uhmmm babe i, I, I (I stammered)

     

    You are what tell me Gabe said.

     

    I’m pregnant I said and faced down.

     

    What do you mean, hope am not responsible Gabe said.

     

    My eyes widened, but babe you are the one who took my virginity now.

     

    Just then the door opened and a you white lady walked in. She is not a Nigeria lady at all. She was carrying a little beautiful lady.

     

    Honey am home the lady said as Gabe went and hugged her and kissed her.

     

    What’s going on here, I asked?

     

    Well Sandra meet Michelle my wife

     

    Honey who is she? The whit woman asked.

    Episode 24

    Your wife? I thought you said Michelle was your junior sister.

    Honey who is she the white woman asked.

    Well sweetheart meet my house maid Sandra. She is a very good girl and she cooks and clean the house before you return.

     

    I was shocked. Mrs white woman please he is lieing to you, he’s my boyfriend and am carrying his child.

     

    The white woman stared at Gabe and asked again honey is that true.

     

    Of course not, how do you expect me to cheat on you with that kind of person when I have a sexy classic woman as my wife. She is the one that is lying Gabe said.

     

    Now you black ass b---h the white woman said referring to me. Am an american woman and I presume you’ve heard about it.

     

    You lied to me about my husband and am not gonna take that, so I you don’t leave this house this minutes I’ll make sure am gonna kick you ass out.

     

    I was shocked and tears began to roll down my cheeks. Am telling you the truth ma am pregnant for him I said in tears and am his girlfriend wait let me call an evidence.

     

     

     

    I picked up my phone and dialed nancys number. It rang several times and she didn’t pick up. Why will this girl throw away her phone when I need her the most.

     

    B---h you know what you hat two options right here, you go upstairs and pack your things and leave or am gonna throw you out myself the white woman said.

     

    I have no option most especially now that there is no evidence. I can’t stay most especially now that I’ve being threatened by this white woman.

     

    I went upstairs and packed my things, I got to the sitting room and still meet them kissing and romancing.

     

    You know, you can go with the car, but remember am done with you Gabe said.

     

    Now darling let’s go inside am not gonna stay here all day. She said and they both left.

     

    My life has being ruined. No where to go except my apartment, nobody to call. Life is really a b---h.

     

    I walked to the car and kept my things in the boot, at least I’ve already learnt how to drive.

     

    I got to my apartment and went inside. I sat on the floor crying heavily. What have I done to myself, and I havent heard from nick.

     

    what a shame, I can’t even dream of going back to him. What a disgrace life have put me in.

     

    my phone rang and it was Nancy.

    Me: hello

     

    Nancy:hey babe I saw your missed call.

     

    Me: why didn’t you pock when I needed you the most.

     

    Nancy: sorry I was in the bathroom when you called. Why is your voice like this.

     

    Me: Nancy the worst have happened to me. I never knew Gabriel has a wife.

     

    Nancy: and so is that why you are crying.

     

    Me: Nancy am pregnant for him. He slept with me on my birthday night.

     

    Nancy: why did you do that. I didn’t tell you to let him have s*x with you o.

     

    Me:he was the one who put sleeping pills in my drink that day.

     

    Nancy: well all left for you on how to go around with the child. Its better you abort it now or you become a mother with no husband.

     

    Me: but…..

     

    Nancy; have said my own.

     

    Phone hangs…

     

    God am finished. My life is now like a dirty rag.

    I left the house that day went to a beer parlor and drank my self to stupor. Just to get rid of all this pain.

     

    The next day I went to the boutique to get some clothes with the money Gabriel transferred into my account the day the disvirgined me.

     

    I go the boutique and did some shopping I was about going make payment when I saw nick. I quickly hid myself at the corner of some clothes so he won’t see me.

     

    He was looking more fresh, handsome and fat more than before. He went to talk the sales girl and later left.

     

    I watched him as he entered a white Ferrari, and zoomed off.

     

    Wait oh is that is car, am not sure I said inside me and went to meet the sale’s girl for my payment.

     

    After my payment, hmm excuse me don’t be angry i said to the sales girl. Do you know that man who came here few minutes ago.

     

    You mean the one with the Ferrari she asked.

     

    Yes, yes I replied.

     

    That’s my boss, his name is Nicholas. She said.

     

    Wait your what?

     

    My boss, he’s the one who employed me here and pays me every month.

     

    Are you serious. When did he build this place.

     

    Build what, he bought it and redesigned it from what I heard. Anything?

     

    No not at all, just wanted to confirm thank you, I said and walked away.

     

    Blood of Jesus. Sandra you are such a fool, a big one at that, how could I have left nick and my parents won’t even listen to me, God am I triple trouble.

    Episode 25

    I got home that day and I wasn’t myself. God how am I going to survive all this.

    No friends, no finance or boyfriend, my parents have disowned me. God please I need your help this minute.

    How can I beg for forgiveness or even dare call my parents am so scared.

    I picked up my phone and called perpetual, to beg for forgiveness but I wasn’t going through maybe she has changed her line.

    I dialed my mom number and called her because I won’t dare call my dad.

    Mom: hello

     

    Me: hello mama it’s me ebere your daughter.

     

    Mom: what is it.

     

    Me: mama please don’t hang the phone please I beg you in the name of God. Am so sorry for all that happened, am sorry mama, I’ve come back to my right senses now.

     

    Mama: you see your life, how you threw away your opportunity because of money and wealth. You would’ve been in your husband house now.

     

    Me: I know mama please I beg you can you help me talk to nick, i’ll a nd you his number.

     

    Mama: talk to who, you are very senseless, you want to beg him now that you have realize yourself, haii ebere you are disgrace to your entire family. If it was because of money why did I marry your father. Did I marry your father as a rich man. Now see your life.

    Mama: your father won’t even listen to me, he said you are no longer his daughter, I sent you to school to make me and your father proud but you brought disgrace upon us.

    Now nick we see us as the parents of a harlot. Keep on with your life, and continue enjoying non sense.

     

    Me: mama please listen to me please….

    Phone hangs…

     

    I wept bitterly like never before. What have I brought upon myself, I can’t even go back home to see my parents.

     

    I’ll go to nicks hose to beg him, maybe he can still accept me since his wedding ring is still with me I said to myself.

     

    The next day, I got dress for nicks house, I dressed so sexy and hot at least to still attract him.

     

    I entered my car and zoomed of to his place. I got there and knocked on the door waiting to get on my knees and beg.

     

    The door opened and an elderly man came out, it wasn’t nick at all.

    Good afternoon sir, I greeted.

     

    Good afternoon my daughter how are you.

     

    Am fine sir. Sir please am looking for Nicholas.

    Ewo.. Where can I find him now, God. Sir please do you know where he stays I asked.

    Hmm, I think I have to call him to confirm.she said.

     

    Noo. You don’t have to do that, am innocent. Trust me.

     

    It took a long time to convince her. But she finally gave me the address.

     

    I went to my car and drove to nicks place thinking and praying for a miracle to happen.

     

    I got to the place and couldn’t believe my eyes. Is this the right place or what I said to myself.

     

    I came down from my car and knocked on the huge ironngate.

     

    A boy came out and from his dressing he look like a security or gateman.

    Episode 26 [Final]

    The gateman left and returned in few seconds.

    You can come in, the gateman said.

     

    I walked into the compound praying in my heart for a miracle to happen.

     

    I raised my head and looked at a Marvellous building.

     

    Nick has really changed times two. He now lives in a story building, from small to big.

     

    I looked by my left hand side and there was a car park, with about three extra cars. I wonder if his the only one that rides them.

     

    I was really ashamed, how am I going to start my statement.

     

    I go to the door and hit the door bell. I quickly move backward to create space between me and him.

     

    The door finally opened and nick came out looking at me like he’ve seen his enemy. I know I was one of them though.

     

    What are you doing here nick asked in a angry manner.

     

    I went on my knees and started begging.

     

    Am sorry, please forgive me, I know I’ve done alot of harm to you, I beg you in the name of God, please forgive me. Tears began to run out of my eyes.

     

    Hmmmm, you are sorry, after all I did for you, just because of what happened you ran after money. Now you came back here and tell me you are sorry. I wonder who gave you

     

     

     

    Please nick (I said in tears), I beg you in the name of God our creator to please forgive me, please forget about the past I beg you.

     

    Of course I’ve forgotten about the past, I’ve forgotten how you insulted me when I had nothing, how you left me when i have nothing, and most of all I’ve also forgotten the love we shared.

     

    His words where piercing me like q sword and tears rushed out of my eyes the more.

     

    Nick please, please I beg you, we can still set things up please.

     

    Set what up? He asked, well its like you haven’t heard. Honey he shouted and a female voice replied from inside. Please come with the card on the table.

     

    Who is he calling honey, is he married, I said to myself as I waited for the person to come out.

     

    The door opened and who came out made my eyes widened and my mouth opened wide making me to stand up to my feet.

     

    It was perpetual, she was the one he was calling honey.

     

    Hey Sandra she said waving her hands.

     

    I was really ashamed of myself, how could perp go for nick.

     

    Well Sandra nick continued, since you are here, this is my fiancee and wife to be, perpetual.

     

    I was shut of words, I couldn’t say anything as tears began to rushed down.

     

    Hey Sandra how is Gabriel and Nancy perp asked.

     

    Is she your fiancee, I asked nick.

     

    Yeah and since you are here you are specially invited to our wedding, as the guest of honor, at the end of thus month,or you can be her brides maid if you want. here you go he said giving me the card.

     

    But honey you engaged me, am still your fiancee am still with your ring I said raising up my left finger.

     

     

     

    Hey cut the honey part nick said, you were my fiance not until you left for greener pastures as you said. So you can keep the ring cause I don’t need it.

     

    And remember I forgive but I can’t accept you, go looks for more greener pastures, pasture finding. He said and went inside while perp stared at me for a while and followed him.

     

    I couldn’t control my tears, this is the worst thing that have ever happened to me in my life.

     

    I ran out of the house in tears, I banged the gate opened and rushed into my car.

     

    I couldn’t control my driving, my fiance is now getting married to my friend, Gabe too my Virginity and made me lost all because of Nancy.

     

    I was driving really rough and couldn’t control my spedd.

     

    My hands where shaking and it slipped off the stery and I landed on and electric pole which feel down and smashed the car.

     

    That was how sandra’s life ended. What a pityπŸ˜₯. In this life beware of bad friends, always think for yourself to know if you are making the right decision, always think ahead and imagine the consequences ahead before taking your decision to know if its right or good.

     

    Go after true love not moNey love,

    because Love, and peace of mind don’t have a price which can be bought with money.

     

    Ladies and gentlemen of the group this is the end of wrong romance. Hope you enjoyed it.

    Love y’all

    THE END
