STORY SO FAR
Story of myself who changed to be a better person in the hard way . I tried hard, overcame temptations and found favour when i got involved with Mirabel (The President’s Daughter). Even when i thought that my past would hunt me in my future relationships but to my greatest dismay, Mirabel accepted me and my past.
I had a very supportive family, a friend at school Promise whom fell in love with me unknowingly to me. I resisted the seductions of Lola (Mirabel’s friend) yet, she didn’t give up trying.
My greatest fear came sooner than i expected when a video of me kissing Mirabel on campus surfaced online.
What happened next?
Read from this intriguing story, full of Suspense

What my heart started doing wasn’t heartbeat anymore, it was hitting hard. I if hadn’t calmed my heart that moment, maybe I would’ve been the youngest guy in history to have an heart attack.
Me: Nancy! (my younger sister) Nancy!!
Nancy: Yes senior bro **from the background**
Me: Come here please
Nancy: See me
Me: Take **handling her ₦1,000 note** go buy me two hollandia yoghurts
Nancy: What’s the occasion?
Me: Nothing, just thirsty
Nancy: Hhmmm… senior bro, are u expecting someone? and why are u sweating like this??
Me: No… Nancy please go quickly I don’t have time for this
Nancy: Okay, ah… **she went out**
Chai! If I’m not dreaming, then my life right now is a film trick,,, I’ve never been this scared in my entire life. I became restless, breathing like a dog, sweating profusely like a suffocated pig.
Nancy: Here senior bro **giving me a leather containing my yoghurts with my change**
Me: Thanks **collecting it and burst one open immediately**
Nancy: Won’t u give me some?
Me: Nancy…. take this and buy whatever u want
**giving her ₦100**
Nancy: No senior bro, I want yoghurt too
Me: Oya add this one and buy your own yoghurt **gave her another ₦100**
Nancy: Thanks… buh senior bro, u don’t look ok
Me: I will be fine
Nancy: Are u sure?
Me: Yea, lemme be alone for now
Nancy: Or has she left u?
Nancy: Okay,,, I’m out. Thanks for the money anyways, I’ve been looking for money to recharge my phone.
She talks too much geez! Every moment is a joking time for her.
I burst the second yoghurt open and rushed the drink till it remained small. Now I can focus on my thinking on what to do … before I could think of how,,, my phone rings. I wanted to ignore it and switched off my phone, but the caller was a special one.
Me: Hello Mirabel, have u seen it? Has your father seen it? What are we going to do? Should I run to my village and hide? Or i shoul…
Mirabel: Relax Victor, I’m on my way to your place now, I will call u when I get to the junction u told me.
Me: Okay… please answer this question I’m going to ask u
Mirabel: What is it?
Me: Has he been told about the video? I mean your Father??
Me: Oh no…
That was the last thing I heard before I found my self on the hospital bed.
I opened my eyes slowly, my sight was kinda blurry at that moment. I heard a voice calling doctor, it was my mother’s. I couldn’t recognize or understand what was going on until a special voice called my name, then I got back to my senses and realized that i was in the hospital.
Mirabel: Victor? Can u hear me? Victor?
Mirabel: Hi, what happened to u? U got everyone worried
Me: What am i doing here?
The doctor walked in with my mum and my sis. The doctor examined me using his stethoscope.
Mum: How is he doctor?
Doctor: He will be fine madam, u don’t have to worry. He just need a little more rest and something solid to eat in order for him to regained his strength. I advise u get him his favorites
Mum: Okay doctor, thank u very much
Doctor: U are welcome madame
**The doctor walked away**
Mum: What can we get him?
Nancy: Errmmm… I dunno, maybe beans
Mum: Be serious, U know he dislikes beans
Mirabel: Ma, He needs fried rice and chicken with cool hollandia yoghurt, trust me
Mum: Sorry, U haven’t told me who u are
Mirabel: I’m his friend from school ma
Mum: His girlfriend i suppose
Mum: **Smiling** don’t lie to me, are u guys dating or not?
Mirabel: We’re dating ma **with a coy smile**
Mum: So,,, he loves fried rice?
Mirabel: A lot ma especially with hollandia yoghurt
Mum: Woah,,, I didn’t know… I don’t really prepare it at home. Nancy, u will go and buy it,,, come take the. money
Mirabel: Don’t worry ma, I will go and get it for him.
Mum: Ok my dear
Nancy: I will go with u Aunty
Mum: You’re not going anywhere
Nancy: But mummy…
Mirabel: Please let her ma
Mum: She’s going to delay u with her talks that has no limit
Mirabel: Don’t worry ma, we’d be fast i promise
Mum: Hhmmm… okay oh…
Nancy: Thanks mummy **hugs mum** Aunty lets go lets go
All this while i pretended to sleeping, it wasn’t intentional though because i was so weak and sore. I opened my eyes minutes after Mirabel and Nancy left.
Mum: How are u feeling now?
Me: Very weak
Mirabel: Its okay, Nancy and your, your friend went to get u something to eat. I heard u like fried rice and chicken with yoghurt, they’re going to buy them for u so u regain your strength. Don’t force yourself to talk if u can’t, u will take your medicines after u eat. Maybe u will be discharged today, that’s if u respond well. U better respond well so that u leave this place or do u want to remain here?
I shake my head in a gesture that means no.
Mum: Good, so u better eat enough and take your medicines ok?
Me: Yes ma
Chai! My mother can talk eh… that’s why i’m not surprised about Nancy. She took after my mother, talk talk talk and talk,,, geez! I won’t lie, it really irritates me, i don’t like too much talk especially with repetitions. Imagine, if Nancy starts talking, mum would complain that she talks too much and vice versa.
Nancy: I’m telling u Aunty, even when i go to the saloon its the same thing, I rememb…
Mum: Nancy! Nancy!! Ah!!!
Nancy: Mummy what nau
Mum; U talk too much, give yourself a break ah
Mirabel: How is he ma?
Mum: He’s fine, he just woke up. Victor oya seat up
Mirabel came to help me seat up. Seeing her gives me joy, i feel happy around her and forget my worries. Talking about worries, Ah! Mr. President oh… he saw the video of me kissing his daughter, i’m sooo gone. I forgot about it again when i saw Nancy shaking the hollandia yoghurt meant for me…my another source of joy.
Mirabel arranged a plate of the fried rice for me, i saw her smiling while putting it.
Mum: Its your father.
My Dad wasn’t around by that time, he travelled to Ekiti for business.
She put it on speaker
Mum: Hello sir
Dad: Ab’ele? (How u doing?)
Mum: Olafia sir (Fine sir)
Dad: Abu ‘ola Victor de ajoi? (How is Victor doing now)
Mum: e da che chi me, e mo’lu ji me (its getting better, he has woken up already)
Dad: Ok, has any drug been administered to him?
Mum: Not yet, he’s about to eat now. He would do so afterwards
Dad: Alright, any outstanding payment to be made?
I knew it! If my Dad doesn’t mention the word ‘outstanding’ then he hasn’t concluded his speech yet.
Mum: We haven’t made any payment yet
Dad: Okay, u have money on u right?
Mum: Yes, but I don’t know if it would be enough
Dad: It should be enough na, afterall,,, how many treatment was carried on on him.
Mum: Okay sir
Dad: I still have a meeting tomorrow morning, so i dunno if i would be able to come tomorrow
Mum: Hhmmm… okay
Dad: Gwo ma chaka (greet them all)
Mum: Ma’a gbo (they will hear)
Dad: Ok bye
Nancy: Daddy byee
Dad: Ok bye, is it Nancy?
Nancy: Yes sir
Dad: Ab’ele (how are u?)
Nancy: Fine sir
Dad: Take care eh… I will be home soon
Nancy: Ok Dad, byee…
I trust my Dad but sometimes i couldn’t help but suspect if he’s doing it out there. By ‘doing it’ u should know what i mean.
They placed a small table across my waist and put the food on top. A tumbler was filled with yoghurt.
Mum: Take **giving me a spoon** start eating. Make sure u eat a lot, lemme go and close the shop. I will be back soon.
Me: Ok ma
Mum: And your medicines, make sure u take them accordingly ok?
Me: Yes ma
Mum: Please uhmmm… is it errmmm Miracle?
Mirabel: Mirabel ma
Mum: Ok Mirabel, please help me look after him
Mirabel: I will ma
Mum: Help me make sure he eats well because he hates food whenever he’s not feeling well, and please make him take his medicines accordingly
Mirabel: Okay ma
Mum: Thank u very much. Oya Nancy let’s go
Mum: Come on!
Nancy: **she starts doing that child-like angry attitude and walked out**
Mum: Ok till i come back
Mirabel: Okay ma
Mum: Victor eat well oh…
I didn’t say anything, she left.
Mirabel: What happened to u sweetheart?
Me: U said your Dad saw the video, do u know what that means?
Mirabel: Wait, what? I never said such
Me: U answered yeah when i asked u
Mirabel: Oh (laughs) I said where not yea, Like where would he have seen it
Me: U mean he hasn’t seen it?
Me: But news as such should’ve gotten to him
Mirabel: Not if something has been done
Me: How do u mean?
Mirabel: Don’t worry, eat first we’d talk about that later. Go on, eat
I start pretending like i’m not interested in the food. Well its like that for sick people, buh am i really sick? I’m just weak. I still couldn’t help but pretend.
Mirabel: Eat dear, don’t u want to get better? Its your favourite… oya eat for me, for my sake please… see yoghurt, u can drink as much as u like,,, come on start eating already
My mind sweet me eh….. i dip the spoon into the rice, fetched out small of it and ate
Mirabel: There u go, try it again or should i feed u?
I took my yoghurt and sipped it like i was drinking a bitter herbal medicine. Mirabel supported my hand to make it flow more into my mouth, i tried to decline but she persisted and i really enjoyed it,,, just pretence. After finishing it, i looked like a baby that was just fed.
Mirabel: Excuse me lemme use the rest room
I nodded in agreement. As soon as she closed the door behind her, i grabbed the hollandia and start sucking it from its container.
The door just burst open
I freezed immediately with my eyes wide opened facing her speechlessly. She caught me!!
Mirabel: I knew it! That nothing can make u avoid hollandia yoghurt no matter what.
I didn’t know what to say or do, i slowly dropped the yoghurt
Mirabel: Hhmmm… do u have anything to say?
Mirabel: Good! U know what to do now
So jeje i started eating my rice, the chicken was so many. I ate and drank as much as i could before i retired. Mirabel gave me the medicines which i took.
Mirabel: How do u feel now?
Me: Hhmmm… **forming sick**
Mirabel: Talk jare!!
The shout shocked me. Seems like Mirabel don’t take nonsense oh…
Me: I feel much better now, thanks dear (I humbled myself)
Mirabel: Did u enjoyed the meal?
Me: Yes it was good, uhmm… why were u smiling when u were putting the food on the plate for me?
Mirabel: *laughs* I saw how u were swallowing your saliva on seeing it
Me: No i didn’t
Mirabel: Yes u did, U didn’t ke. Tell that to the gods
**The Doctor and a Nurse walks in**
Doctor: How u feeling now Victor?
Me: Better sir
Doctor: Okay, lemme see…
He examined me.
Doctor: Ok good
He collected a paper from the nurse and wrote down some things.
Mirabel: How is he Doctor?
Doctor: He is okay now, I will discharged him immediately the bills get settled. Where is his mother?
Mirabel: She’s not around buh i can take care of it
Doctor: Ok lets go
Mirabel: I’m coming Victor
She came back some minutes later
Mirabel: Time to go, you’ve been discharged
Me: Thanks sweetheart, u are dah best
Mirabel: And you’re so welcome my love
Me: Hhmmm… can i get, U know **touching my lips** I miss it like crazy
Mirabel: No u can’t
Mirabel: No! **arranging my stuffs**
Me: But why?
Mirabel: U pretended not wanting to eat and drink ‘coz you’re ‘sick’, so,,, why don’t u wait till u get better before u get ‘this’ **giving me a sharp kiss**
Me: But i’m fine now that’s why i’m being discharged
Mirabel: I don’t care
Me: Come on
Mirabel: No no no no
Mirabel: That’s what u get for pretending,,, I don’t like pretence, not even from u. So beat it
Me: Arrghh!! **I fell back on to the bed and unintentionally hit my head against the steel frame of the bed**
Mirabel: Oh my god! What happened?
I was holding my head in pain
Mirabel: Sorry dear, i’m coming lemme call the Doctor
Me: I don’t need the Doctor
Mirabel: Then what do u want me to do? U are in pain
Me: Kiss! I want kisses from u, arrghh
Me: Aish! Kiss oh… kiss kiss kiss please kiss
Mirabel: Ok! Alright calm down
She kissed me for like 3 seconds
Mirabel: Alright that’s enough
Me: No, more more more… my head oh… please more
She kissed me again, this time i grabbed her so she won’t escape, she tried to get off but i held her tight until she gave in and responded, we then kissed passionately. We continued until the door burst open bringing in my momma.
We disengaged immediately.
About my family in brief…
Igala by tribe, my parents has three children and I’m the only male and second child. My older sister Joy, who got married last year to her Pilot lover and she’s currently pregnant with her first issue. She lives in Kano and has not visited the family since she got married.
My younger sister Nancy is a jambite, she stays at home and also helps momma in the shop. I’m suspecting her of having a boyfriend, iffa catch any guy near my sister eh…
U all know about me already, i’m the boyfriend of our President’s lovely Daughter,,, sweet description for me Lolz
My Momma is still young and pretty that one useless guy abi man tried to toast her, person mama wey don born finish *imagine*. He got the most suitable insults he could ever get from any woman, its a good thing i wasn’t around by that time, That was when i was in custody and being tortured by that wicked soldier woman and her colleagues *tear drop* Momma owns a big provision store.
My Father is a Chartered Accountant and he travels a lot. I do suspect him a lot that he’s still sexually active and i hope i’m wrong. He his the kind of father that children would want to be around, he always bring goodies from his trip. He is nice and very cool. He doesn’t shout out of anger, he provides every needs of the family.
☆☆☆ ☆ Continues ☆ ☆☆☆
Me: Errmm… Mummy u are back
Mum: Yes, hmmmm and I guess you’re fine now
Me: Yes ma, the Doctor have discharged me already
Mum: What did he say?
Me: He said i’m fine now that i can go home
Mum: No, I mean what did he said about the bills?
Me: Its being taken care of
Mum: By who?
Me: Her **smiling**
Mum: U did? **Referring to Mirabel**
Mirabel: Yes ma
Mum: Thank u my daughter, God bless u
Mirabel: Thank u ma,,, where is Nancy?
Mum: I sent her ahead, to start preparing dinner
Mirabel: Ok ma,,, so let’s be going
Mum: Put on your shirt Victor let’s go home
I put on my shirt, Mirabel supported me to stand up. I saw how my Momma was smiling when looking at us, i pretended not seeing her.
We got outside, there was two cars. One for my momma and the other for Mirabel. I had to go with my mum’s
She quietly spoke to me not letting my momma hear.
Mirabel: Excuse me lemme call the guards to go and lodge in a hotel, I will be going with you and your mum
Buh, is she planning on staying over? Hhmmm…
We arrived at our house.
Mum: Go and rest on the big chair (couch) lemme join Nancy in the kitchen
Me: Ok ma
Mum: Mirabel make yourself comfortable Ok? I’m coming
Mirabel: Ok ma
**She went into the kitchen**
A loud awkward silence just emanated from within.
I saw her smiling whenever i take a glance at her.
Me: What’s up with the smiling?
Mirabel: *laughs* Nothing… U look cuter when you’re sick
Me: Go ahead, keep teasing me
Mirabel: *laughs* No i’m not teasing u, u are cute
Me: Ok thank u. Mirabel, we need to talk
Mirabel: Why? U want to break up with me?
Me: Of course not! why did u say that?
Mirabel: Well uhmmm… that’s something i learnt from Hollywood movies
Me: What did u learn?
Mirabel: That’s ermm… whenever a guy or a girl tells his partner that ‘we need to talk’ its probably about break up.
Mirabel: So what do u want to talk about?
Me: About the situation at hand.
Mirabel: Okay yea, but not now
Me: Why? Aren’t u worried at all??
Mirabel: Why are u worried? are u a shame of me??
Me: Are u kidding? Why should i be ashamed of u??
Mirabel: Then why are u so worried?
Me: Mirabel u should understand the situation
Mirabel: What situation?
Me: I could get into trouble, how do u think the President would feel seeing me kissing his daughter in campus? His image? Status? Responsibility? Don’t u think it’d be scandalous and can lead to controversies of his administration by his adversaries??
Mirabel: U dunno know anything about my father and i told u already that its been taken care of
Me: But how?
**My mum just showed up**
Mum: What is this that i just heard? President? Daughter? Father? And who is kissing the President’s daughter??
Me: Mummy… U
Mum: Alu we de! (Close your mouth!) I’m asking u Mirabel, are u the President’s daughter? Because i clearly overheard that part
My sister Nancy brought herself into the sitting room as well
Nancy: What’s going on mummy? *confused*
Mummy: Myself don’t understand, I’m trying to understand
Nancy: But i heard your voice
Mummy: I’m trying to get answers that hasn’t been provided,,, yet.
Nancy: Senior Bro, Aunty Mirabel what’s this about?
Mirabel: Okay, Alright I’m gonna clear the air by telling u guys the truth
Mirabel: Its okay,,, lemme do this
Mummy: Go ahead i’m listening
Mirabel: Uhmmm,,, okay its like this, I’m the President’s Daughter
Now my momma has known my girlfriend, what does that mean now? We get married later?? No way!! Did i just say no way? Yes way! Infact Yeapie!!
No I meant, not that i wouldn’t want to marry her. After all, i hit it first,,, geez! what am i saying. The thing here is her family background and status. Well, anything can happen sha but this is definitely not happening, maybe i should think about it.
Mum: An organizational President in your school or which type of President are u talking about?
Mirabel: The country’s President ma
Mum: Ein? Ojo mi eh… (My God o)
Me: Mummy ewn le? (Mummy what’s wrong?)
Mum: U are asking me what’s wrong? Have u forgotten how an ordinary soldier dealt with u because of their daughter? Now u are dating the whole commander in chief of the armed force’s daughter?! The President’s Daughter! Ah! What’s wrong with u?! Haven’t u learnt your lesson? Do u want to kill me? Eh Victor?!
Mirabel: Don’t worry ma, nothing like that is going to happen
Mum: Wait, which of the country’s President are u even talking about?
Mirabel: Our country, Nigeria ma
Mum: And u said nothing like that is going to happen? what are u trying to tell me?? President of Nigeria, ah! I’m finished. An ordinary soldier nearly killed him because,,,,, ok i know Victor did very bad on that aspect but its all the same.
Mirabel: I promise u ma that, nothing as such is going to happen. I will everything not to let it happen, and i trust my Dad that he wouldn’t do such
Mum: Is it not happening already? I heard Victor saying something like that, himself is even afraid
Mirabel: He is only imagining things, I’m trying to convince him not to worry about my Father.
Mum: He is your father and of course u wouldn’t know what he is capable of. He is a Nigerian Politician for goodness sake.
Mirabel: With all due respect ma, my father is not just a politician but also a great father. His administration so far has been good and promising with little or less criticism compared to his predecessors.
Mum: My mind will only be at peace if both of u resolve the relationship because i’m not comfortable with it **walked towards the kitchen**
She didn’t answer me nor turn to face me, she just left. I turned to Mirabel to apologize for my momma’s attitude, only for me to see tears dripping down her eyes, one part of my heart developed a soft spot for her while the other part triggered my anger.
Seriously, when someone or something i love got hurt, it really pains me and the person that caused it will have to answer to me. Its a good thing that its my another loved one that caused it, if not….
Well, love + love = love. So what can i do to my momma?.
Mirabel: I have to go now **picking up her bag to leave**
Me: But u don’t have to, Nancy help me talk to your new friend
Nancy: Uhmm uhmm i think uhmm u know,,,, i need to help out in the kitchen. I will be right back guys **She ran into the kitchen**
That useless sister of mine, now that i needed her to talk, she didn’t. Lemme hear her talk more than ten words around me again yeye.
Mirabel also walked out of the house while i followed her.
Me: Come on Mirabel, are u picking offense on what my momma said?
Mirabel: No maybe i should not pick offense when your mother tried to insult my father
Me: She was only trying to prove a point
Mirabel: What? Prove a point u say??
Me: I mean uhmmm,,, u know, the ugh…
Mirabel: U know what? Just…
I rushed to hug her tightly immediately in order to avoid the next thing she might try to say. I watch Hollywood movies a lot, so in this kind of situation, she might just say forget about it and then break up with me.
Me: Sorry my love for every hurtful words my mum said to u, i sincerely apologize for all what my momma said about your father, she’s only trying to protect her only son. Remember what i told u about what i went through in the hands of those soldiers? My momma also went through a lot. She went to the quarter guard everyday during my detention, crying and begging for many hours to see me and for my release of which they didn’t oblige to until five days later. They actually released me because of her, if not,,,, the colleague of my ex girlfriend’s mother swore that i will be there for more than three weeks, I could’ve died but my momma saved me, she saved my life sweetheart. Even after my release she abandoned her shop to take care of me for almost two weeks like a mother nursing her new born. U have to understand her my love, we really have to.
Mirabel: U know mother’s love are Naturally genuine and undeniably obvious. Buh U never told me she went through all that
Me: Well uhmmm,,,, it didn’t came up
Mirabel: But u had the chance
Me: Yea i know, i had to skip that part sweetheart. They say talk brings another talk, so here we are.
Mirabel: Its okay, i will do my best. After all she seems to be nice. She was cool with our relationship at first.
Me: Until she overheard our conversation, gosh! u were so loud
Mirabel: Are u now blaming me? Weren’t u the one she overheard??
‘Tsup’ i gave her a quick kiss
Mirabel: And what was that for?
Me: Just trying to kill any argument arising
Mirabel: I’m rising an argument? **pretending**
I understood she wanted me to do it again. I drew her face nearer
Mirabel: What are u trying to do?
U dare not answer that question. I didn’t say anything, i didn’t even smiled. I gave her a kiss then looked at her face, she didn’t respond, probably waiting for an answer of which none will be given. I kissed her again and still got no response from her. Woah,,, i love this. This time, i grabbed her waist and drew her very close and started devouring her lips of which she responded to after few seconds. She even laughed to my aggression. She pushed me away after kissing for many minutes….
Mirabel: Go away u naughty lover, u take advantage of every situation. How do u do that?
Me: Lemme say, i know my girlfriend more than she give me credit for
Mirabel: Oh really…? **Placing her hands around my neck**
Me: Yea really… **Placing both my hands around her waist**
**Lots of passionated kisses**
Mum: Is this how the two of u want to spend the night? Talking,kissing, kissing and kissing for dinner?
We disengaged immediately and saw Momma and Nancy standing with both hands crossed. Chai! like mother like daughter.
Mirabel: Sorry ma, i’m even about to leave **stylishly cleaning her lips**
Mum: Really? How come it doesn’t seem so??
Mum: Its okay, enough of the explanations. I just came to ask who cares for dinner, i guess some people are satisfied with their ‘dinner’ already. Dunno when that husband of mine will come home and…. Let’s go Nancy the food is getting cold already, U m’ewn chi ke du mi w’igbada ami sef (I don’t even know why u brought me out here) **she walked inside**
Nancy gave me a thumbs up and a supporting smile before she went inside.
Yeah,,, now that’s my sister being her brother’s keeper.
Me: Let’s go in sweetheart, It is settled
After dinner, its our home tradition to remain in the sitting room till 9:00pm before anyone can go to his/her room.
There was total silence during and after dinner. Nancy sat on one corner chatting and waiting patiently for 9:00. Mirabel and I sat on one side while momma sat on the sofa, looking at us from time to time.
The clock finally ticks for bed time, Nancy took herself from her seat headed to her room, not to sleep though but to chat and make phone calls comfortably.
Nancy: Goodnite mum, nite bro, let’s go inside Mirabel
Mirabel was about to stand up before momma speak up.
Mum: She will join u later Nancy, I need to talk to her
Nancy: Okay mum **walks out**
Mum then turn down the volume of the plasma tv. I became nervous because she only does that when she has something very important to say or to do. My eyes and Mirabel’s jammed, she seems to be relaxed.
Mum: I want to talk to the two of you. Firstly with some questions and i require sincere answers from both of u. You know, relationships is now something very common with our youths of today and there’s nothing we parents can do to stop our children especially when they claim to be in love, except for our honest advice. I wasn’t there when both of you started your dating or relationship or whatever it might be, and i know deep down my heart that i can’t stop your relationship, i might just turn out to be a wicked person and a bad mother. Are you both listening to what i’m saying?
Me/Mirabel: Yes ma
Mum: Good, so why are you both dating each other? Victor??
Me: Because,,,, we love and care for each other, we understand and trust each other, and we uhmm… we want to be with each other.
Mum: That’s why you’re dating?
Mum: Okay, Mirabel?
Mirabel: We’re dating each other because,,,, what we feel for each other is true, we’re good friends that understands and help each other out, no one is influencing the other to do something bad so i think we’re compatible together. Our relationship is that of friendship hoping to make it to the future together.
Mum: I like that reply. That’s something i want to hear.
(Chai! I dunno why ladies like being with a guy hoping to end up together. Their mindset is far different from the guys oh… they would want to tie us down to be their husband,,,,, see how my momma likes her response).
Mum: Do you agree with both your replies?
Mirabel: Yes ma
Me: Yes ma
Mum: Good, have the two of you thought of being with each other in the future? As in, do you have future plans with each other?
Me: Uhmmm… yea, yeeaah i do think about having a future with Mirabel, I love her. (Not certain)
Mirabel: If a prophet tells me that i’d end up with Victor, I’d be extremely happy. He is the kind of man i’d want to spend my life with.
Mum: I guess that answers my question
(U can imagine how my heart was beating)
Mum: Now tell me what can make you break up with each other?
Me: I haven’t thought about that, maybe not yet
Mum: Miracle, sorry Mirabel *smiles*
Mirabel: For me, I can’t be with someone that will give me a reason for not trusting him. So, infidelity will end what i have for him.
Mum: Hhmmm…. okay, I’ve heard you both and I approve of your relationship **satisfactory smile**
Me: Thanks mum
Mirabel: Thanks ma, we won’t disappoint you or i won’t disappoint you rather
Mum: For my advice, first, both of you should abstain from s£x, God doesn’t approve of it neither would I approve it. Its not good for the unmarried. I’m not going to ask if you both have been having s£x before but if you have been doing it, stop it, it’s unacceptable,,,, do u understand what i’m saying?
Mirabel: Yes ma
(Nawa o,,, e don red o,,, am i going back to my root of not having s£x anymore? Nawa o…)
Mum: Do you both understand that? **her eyes on me**
Mirabel/Me: Yes ma
Mum: Good. Mirabel i like what you said about your relationship being that of friendship’ I will like you both to be friends. You know what friends does right? Sharing and communicating with each other your problems, happiness, ideas and of all that. Also trusting and understanding each other and be there for each other. Relationships doesn’t work out well if there’s no friendship, so be friends ok?
Mirabel/Me: Yes ma
(Mehn,,,, i feel like i’m getting get married already, like i’m on marriage counseling)
Mum: That’d be all for now, its late already so u two need to have your sleep.
Me: Ok ma
Mirabel: Thank you ma
Mum: Lemme take you to Nancy’s room Mirabel, where u’d spend the night **switching off everything**
Mirabel: Ok ma
Mum: Ok let’s go
Mirabel: Good night Victor
Me: Good night, Good night mummy
Mum: Good night, make sure you pray before sleeping
Me: Yes ma
I departed to my room screaming ‘Nawa o’ inner my mind.
I took my phone and on the data sharparly. Many messages from many different chats showed up but i ignored them ‘coz i wasn’t in the mood for chatting. I saw a message from Nancy, i opened it and we chatted a little …
Nancy: So wat do i get 4 helpin u?
Me: Yea tnx, wat would u want?
Nancy: I can ask 4 anytin?
Me: I dunno, lemme hear it
Nancy: Ok,,, can i have a boyfriend? *winks*

Nancy: Heyy easy bro, i was only joking
Me: U better be,,, tell me wat u want
Nancy: I dunno yet, i will tell u when i think about it
Nancy: But y don’t u want me 2 hav a boyfriend?
Me: Y do u want 2 hav a boyfriend?
Nancy: Haba bro, i’m matured already na,,,, most girls hav boyfriends, even all my friends except for Tonia dat has been crushing on u *winks*
Me: Wrong answer, no boyfriend 4 u
Nancy: Buh y nau? *sad face*
Me: I hav told u,,, u cant b doing wat ur friends and every else does. No boyfriend 4 u Nancy, good nite!
Nancy: Haba bro nau
I logged out,,, I sat restless on my bed trying to sleep buh sleep avoided me. I thought about something and got back online again. Good thing she was online, so i initiated chat with her….
Me: Hey babe *love eyes*
Mirabel: Hi love
Me: I cant sleep, just thinking about u, love of my life, the one and only tenant in my heart, my dearest, my most beautiful, you’re just too much babe
Mirabel: Tnks love, u’re dah best *blushing*
Me: Tnx babe…. u really don’t need to worry about all what my momma had said. She’s just being over protective, U know mothers na
Mirabel: Its okay, i understand her completely,,, she’s Okay
(In my mind i was like, what part does she understand).
Me: Please tell Nancy to help u sneak into my room, i really miss u
Mirabel: We’ll see tomorrow morning dear
Me: Wah about tonite? I want to feel u, Mum won’t know i promise
Mirabel: U know wat? I think your mum is right
Me: About wat?
Mirabel: About everything she said earlier
Me: U hav 2 come 2 my room babe, i’m going crazy here
Mirabel: Good nite Victor, Love U *kisses*
Me: Good nite?
Mirabel: Last seen 10:47
Mirabel: Last seen 10:48
Me: My love?
Mirabel: Last seen 10:50
Me: Mirabel…?! are u 4 real??
Mirabel: Last seen 10:53
D–n it! She has really left.
I wasn’t happy that night, But Nancy will surely be very happy. I know she’ll bombard Mirabel with lots of questions and other things she would like to know out of her curiosity. She won’t let Mirabel rest because she’ll want to know a lot from the little opportunity she got to sleep on the same bed in the same room with the President’s Daughter which happens to be her brother’s girlfriend *Winks*
Around 5:21am I heard a loud knock on my door and heard momma’s voice calling my name, it was time for our morning devotion which was Nancy’s turn to lead.
I joined them in the sitting room singing praises to God. We heard the word, we prayed, did some chores, bath, then ate bread and tea for breakfast.
I didn’t know if i should be angry with Mirabel or not. I hate being disappointed. Did she really disappointed me? She made her point sha buh i still didn’t like the fact that she turned me down.
Mum got prepared to go to the shop with Nancy. Mirabel asks if she could join them. Mum agreed while Nancy was glad. Mum asked me if i’d join them, but i declined.
Mirabel took me to a corner and gave me a quick kiss,,, just a kiss before she left with them. I was left at home,,, alone.
What i did i do?
I dashed to the kitchen immediately, took a big cup, put a lots of my momma’s powdered milk with chocolates, then used cold water to drink it.
I went to the sitting room to watch movies,,, many channels were showing interesting movies, series, and music but they bore me. I got out of the house to the game house. I related with my hommies and they showed me love. We played, gists, we had fun till i left there later in the afternoon when i got hungry. Mum called me to inquire if i would go to the shop for lunch, or prepare something to eat at home, or buy something to eat. And of course i chose to buy something. I don’t really enjoy suya in the day time so i bought meat pies and hollandia yogurts. I got bored at home again, i decided to watch the television and NEPA seized the power. I don’t chat when i’m bored so i just slept.
I don’t know how long i slept but i know i didn’t wake up intentionally. My rap ringtone actually woke me up and the tone appeared in my dream.
Me: Hello *horror voice*
Promise: Hi,,, why weren’t u picking up? Have u been sleeping?
Promise: Yeah,,, seems so sounding from your voice. So how u doing?
Me: Fine i guess
Promise: Mirabel told me she’s been at your place since yesterday and that you weren’t feeling too well, so how u feeling now?
Me: Better,,, i’m ok now
Promise: Of course, why won’t u be ok now when she’s with u
Me: Yea,,, how u doing?
Promise: I’m ok, rocking my iPhone
Me: I see… that’s good
Promise: Yea, the camera is wow!
Me: Yea it is
Promise: U sound boring, what’s up with u?
Me: I just woke me up from my siester
Promise: Even at that, its not like u
Me: Promise I’m fine
Me: Yea sure
Promise: Ok, we’d talk some other time when you’re more ‘lively’
Me: Yea, bye
I saw 2 missed calls, it was from Promise.
The power got restored back buh i still wanted to sleep. I was enjoying my dream before Promise cut it short.
It was even her call that made my dream sweeter. Because i was hearing my rap ringtone in my dream.
The dream was….
I was the class and the Lecturer was lecturing. Then suddenly, the Lecturer start rapping my ringtone in the class which was 2Pac Shakur’s. I joined him in the rap ‘coz i know the rap and i love it.
That’s how my Lecturer and i was rapping in the class before i woke up and discovered that it’s my phone that has been ringing.
Later in the evening, Mirabel and Nancy came back from the shop to start preparing dinner. I really missed her,,,, i mean Mirabel.
We exchanged pleasantries and i got just a peck from her.
Me: How did it go?
Mirabel: Very fine, the sales was good
Me: Oh i see… i know Nancy disturbed u
Mirabel: Not at all, she’s fun and good to be with
Me: Really? Even with her talking problem ?
Mirabel: Its not a problem Victor, its her Natural gift and its cool
Me: Hhmmmm (speechless)
Mirabel: Talk to u later, lemme freshen up (Walks away).
After they did a little freshen up, Nancy went to the kitchen while Mirabel came back to me.
Mirabel: I will be leaving tomorrow Victor
Me: I thought u would spend the week here?
Mirabel: I never planned on doing that, besides your Dad called to inform your Mom that he’d be coming back tomorrow
Me: So, U will leave me like this?
Mirabel: Like what?
Me: We could spend quality time together tonight
Mirabel: Not gonna happen
Me: Come on,,, not even a kiss? Or kisses rather
Mirabel: **smiles** (she walked closer to me and whispered) Mum instructed us to prepare fried rice and chicken for dinner, and she’d bring some yogurts. So hold that thought for later (She gave me a simple kiss on the lips then walked away smiling) I was like ‘Hhmmmm’
About 45 minutes later, I started perceiving a delicious aroma from the kitchen. I couldn’t bear the suspense of the aroma any longer so i left the house to the game house to pass time, I hate suspense.
There was a kind of party at the game house. I was told earlier but i forgot. On reaching there, they start hailing my name. I felt like a local celebrity. They dragged me to a seat claiming its mine and brought in drinks for me. I don’t drink alcohol anymore but i couldn’t refuse it because of how they were hailing me. They showed me love. And the hailing also made some girls come around to me. I was hesitating to drink but my guys were pushing me to drink before displaying on the dancefloor. I finished one bottle, they opened another one for me. I was about to empty the bottle, before two of my guys dragged me to the dancefloor. The people that knows me started screaming. My head grew bigger, the DJ changed the music to one of my favourite song for dancing which was ‘Alingo’ by P’Square. The song burst my head that i didn’t know when i started dancing. Its been long since i last danced but i still didn’t missed my moves. Before i knew it, girls started bringing their waist closer to me. One even came and put my hands around her waist then she started twisting it for me. The party ‘entertainers’ came to me from behind and offered me a cup of dry gin and two piece of condom (That was how we party) It was the gin that got me high.
The party got hotter, I started feeling uncomfortable when I thought about home and Mirabel. I started adjusting but the girls wouldn’t stop whining in front of me. The one in front of me did even more by pressing herself on me. She even whispered in my ear asking me if I would want to stay on the dancefloor all night long or get a room with her now (showing me a pack of condom) Chai! tempted to touch!!
I didn’t know what to tell her, but seriously, a part of me was giving in and the other part wants me to go home.
Girl: Come on, lets go am burning up (pulling my hand to follow her)
Skyly: Vickie V i dey see your hand oh… tha baddest nigga!
Lechessy: Vickie no dull o…
Those were voices of my home boys motivating me to go on with her
Skyly: Vickie V i carry extra if u need ‘am (Extra i.e Condom)
Me: No need, loaded tinz
Lechessy: Na so! (Laughing and dancing even harder)
I followed her with no intention of having sex with her but in order not to fall my hands among my friends as i’m not that strong in my christian spirit yet, but i’m trying. I had handshakes with some of my guys i met on my way with her.
Shapiro: The rugged vames!
Shapiro: Unto which angle na? (Like where am i taking her to)
Me: Na away o… (She’s the one taking me out)
Shapiro: Abi? fine bwoy, me just arrive 360 na (Just came back sex-satisfied)
Me: No be lie,,, I no see wetin fit kill u again
Shapiro: Na lie, i go repent after the thing kill u
Me: Dey deceive yourself na, guy later jare
Shapiro: Oya na, nothing do u
I left him and followed the girl to a dark corner, when walking I saw a girl and a guy having sex against a wall, I even saw more set of people banging their selves. My phone started ringing, It was Nancy.
Nancy: Senior bro where are u nau? Why didn’t u pick Mirabel’s calls?? She’s so worried bro!
Me: Really? Oh my god, I didn’t hear the call
Nancy: Where are u anyway?
Me: I’m I’m,,, I’m,,,I’m around, I’m coming in now
Nancy: Around? around where with that sound i’m hearing in the background? are u at that game house or what?
Me: Hey! I’ve warned u about jumping into conclusions of something u don’t know,,, tell Mirabel I’m coming.
*I hanged up*
I looked at the girl, she has already undressed herself waiting for me. Chai! tempted to touch. My mind couldn’t resist seeing a naked girl standing in front of me waiting for me to,,to,,, to… Chai! I felt like doing a quickie,,, I couldn’t take it no more, I rushed to pounce on her. Unfortunately but thankfully my phone rang again. I took the phone from my pocket not to pick the call, but to ignore it and put the phone on silent but the caller was my mother!
Me: Hello ma
Momma: Yes where are u?
Me: I went to buy something ma, its a surprise for Mirabel, please don’t tell her.
Momma: By this time?
Me: She told me that she’d be leaving tomorrow and I wasn’t aware of it before. So… I thought of getting her something fast.
Momma: Well, She’s listening to our conversation, its on loud speaker, because we’re worried.
Me: Oh… I’m on my way
Momma: Okay and be quick
Girl: Come on babyy, you’re keeping me waiting, just off your phone
‘Devil is a liar’ I said inner my mind.
Me: I have to go, something very important came up
Girl: what?! U want to leave me like this? are U for real?
Me: I’m sorry
Girl: Like seriously?
Me: It’s very important
Girl: Baby okay I understand U, but please even small, just once will do. Please don’t leave me like this,,, I need U inside me baby (trying to romance me and pulling my shirt)
Me: I will be back soon (making her to let go of me)
If I don’t go now, she will surely get me. I hurriedly left her and headed home.
Girl: Hey?! Hey?! Your Papa! Idiot fowl wey no sabi anything, mumu… msteeew
That was the insults she rained on me when i left her. So what do I get Mirabel now? and I don’t have enough money with me. Walking home, thinking hard on the kind of excuse i’m going to tell them. And even though i have the money now, what am i going to get her?
I immediately brought out my phone and placed a call on Promise… I told her everything after picking up, excluding the girl’s part.
Me: So what do u think i can get her?
Promise: Seriously i dunno o… me and her haven’t discussed about her past relationships to know the kind of material things she might want from him. But base on what we’ve discussed about u, I think she only needs your 100% love with care, understanding and honesty.
Me: So u girls do talk about me?
Promise: Before nko? dey there na,,,, abegi, so i think gifts from u will be extra things she’d be needing from u
Me: But what kind of gifts?
Promise: That’s what I don’t know biko, my life and her life no rhyme oh… all i know is that, wealthy girls like Mirabel only need your Love
Me: Alright, thanks for your help
Promise: You’re welcome
Me: Did u even help me? (teasingly)
Promise: (Laughs) What else do u want me to say?
Me: Like, I wish i was helpful
Promise: Bye bye jare!
Me: You’re sending me away?
Promise: Not like that na,,, hia, u were teasing me nau,,, and i don’t want u to make me blush
Promise: Only my boyfriend is allowed to do that
Me: U have a boyfriend now?
Promise: Nope, just saying…
I don’t like where the conversation is heading to, so i twist it to escape from it
Me: Okay o,,, got to go and face my problem now,,, talk to u later
Promise: More like a week from now
Promise: Didn’t say anything,,,, byeee
The reason why i’m so worried to get Mirabel something is because i already told them about it and she’ll be expecting it.
One thing we should all know is that, once u have the spirit and resources of giving, u should give with good intentions. It doesn’t matter if the person is rich and able to provide everything for him or her self. U don’t always give to the needy, U give to the rich as well, especially to your close ones. If your father is rich and working, U can still buy him Biro or even recharge card and he’ll surely appreciate the kind gesture. U don’t need to have all the money u want before giving to your parents, give them from the little u earn for they’ll understand your income and appreciate your giving gesture for there’s blessing for giving.
While thinking seriously on what to do to have enough money to get something for Mirabel, I went to my hommies to lend me some money. I couldn’t find the trusted ones, they could be somewhere having extra fun. The few ones i met were so drunk, they denied having any money on them. I had no choice but to go home empty-handed then put up something as an excuse.
I got home 8:47pm, I discovered they’ve already eaten. I met Momma in the living room seated on the sofa, Nancy at one corner of the dinning chatting or so, but Mirabel wasn’t there.
Me: Good evening ma
Momma: Welcome,,, big boy
Chai! Am in trouble, she’s going to blast me this night…
Me: Sorry for coming late, its really becau…
Momma: Go and eat your food, its in the kitchen (She interrupted)
Me: Ok ma
One thing about my Mum is that, She doesn’t play with food. She makes sure everyone in the house have something to eat at the appropriate time. My Mum don’t starve anyone as punishment, she’s seriously against such acts.
I walked straight to the kitchen, Nancy was demonstrating her hands towards me but I didn’t look at her to understand what she was trying to say. I didn’t even ask of Mirabel. I served my self and ate on the kitchen’s dinning, the food was already cold. I didn’t really enjoyed it. I walked back to the living room to face the panel (Momma) that’s what I say when I know I’m going to be blasted for doing something wrong. I got there, met Mirabel seated not looking good.
Momma: Have u eaten?
Me: Yes ma
Momma: Oya come and seat down here.
(Blasting tinz, here we go…) I said in my mind. I sat down jeje let her say it, I dare not interrupt her speech.
Momma: (she lowered the volume of the TV) Nancy come and seat here
Nancy: But Mummy… (She squeezed her face and walked angrily to take a seat)
Momma: Good evening to you all
All: Good evening ma
Momma: U know as a Christian mother, I will always make sure I put my children in the right way because this is a Christian home. Which means I will never get tired of correcting them whenever they go wrong. Nancy drop that phone before i seize it! what’s wrong with u?!
(She put her phone away)
Momma: Now Victor, U know I no longer tolerate staying out after 7:40 without permission. Today U just went out without telling anyone where you were going to and just left everyone worried. I have said and kept saying that u always let someone know your whereabout to avoid unnecessary worries. And God forbid but if anything should happen, how do u expect us to know where u are? What if something bad had happen to u now? where do u expect us to start looking for u? This is wisdom we’re talking about. I have been telling u, even though we’re not with u at school, u should always inform your room mate or neighbours about where you’re going to. Besides, I don’t advice u to go out at night, I’m not comfortable with night out. What would u go out at night for? U have a girlfriend already,,, what else? Look at her, she hasn’t eaten because of u even when she knew u are ok when I called u the other time. U see what u did to this innocent girl? Now where is the thing u got for her that made stay out late?
Me: Actually, I forgot to take some money because i was in a haste, I thought I had enough money on me
Nancy: So u didn’t buy anything at all?
Momma: Am very disappointed Victor, very disappointed. All this for nothing?
Me: Sorry ma, I didn’t know
Momma: U can tell her that, am done talking to u (she turns to the TV and put up the volume)
Nancy didn’t wait time to get to her room as its past Nine already, while Mirabel followed.
(She went to her)
Momma: Please go and eat
Mirabel: Yes ma
(I thought she’d decline, Thank God she didn’t)
Momma: Call Nancy to warm it for u
Me: I will do it
I took her to the kitchen
Me: Mirabel I’m really sorry for….
She interrupted me with a cool kiss, she smiled and cleaned my lips. I stood surprised.
Me: Wow! easier than i thought (smiling happily) thanks sweetheart for your understanding, you’re the best! and I love U so much
Mirabel: I love u more
Me: It’s a lie, sorry,,, I mean ermmm,,, I love u more (smiling)
Mirabel: (smiling) Its a good thing that you’re save, and i appreciate your good gesture on getting me something
I drew her closer, we kissed passionately for seconds before interrupted when I mistakenly hit a plastic plate which fell off unto the ground and made a noise.
Me: D–n it!
Mirabel: (laughing slowly closing her mouth)
We warmed the food, She ate, I couldn’t eat again but I drank some yoghurts. We went to the sitting room to bade Momma good night before going to the room (Nancy’s). And ofcourse she was still in there chatting,,,, what an addict like Promise aka Promzy, geez!
Nancy: I’ve been waiting for u Mirabel, U promised we’d continue our discussion later.
Mirabel: Yes I did promise, and I haven’t forgotten (smiling)
I drew Mirabel to a corner where Nancy wouldn’t hear our conversation.
Mirabel: What is it?
Me: I thought You’d spend the night with me in my room?
Mirabel: But we never planned on doing that
Me: You should know na, remember u turned me down last night?
Mirabel: So what happens to Nancy? I promised her but I didn’t promise u anything
Me: U came here for me and not for her na
Mirabel: Yes I know,,, Isn’t it a good thing that your sister likes me and enjoys my company?
Me: Well i’m not surprised that she likes u or even love u already,,, But She’s got all your attention since u came here more than me, we haven’t spend any quality time together. U both slept in the same room, went to the shop together instead of staying home with me,,, come on babe, Its not fair
Mirabel: (Laughs) You’re complaining? Instead of u to be happy that i’m getting along well with your family, you’re here being jealous of it (Leaning on me romantically)
Mirabel: Its Nancy, she’s been waiting for me for so long now
Me: Then let her wait, I want to spend time with my girlfriend!
Mirabel: Don’t be like that Victor,,, U and I have spent months together at school, and will spend more when we resume and even years to come that’s if u don’t screwed up. So why can’t u let me use this little time i got to know your family and your family to know me as well? You’re being selfish u know, this is….
(Momma shows up)
Momma: U guys are still talking?
Me: Ermmmm ma
Momma: No, u guys have spoken a lot already, I need to have a little conversation with Mirabel, If u don’t mind Mirabel?
Mirabel: No i don’t (smiling at me)
Momma: Okay, let’s go… (Taking Mirabel away)
I mind oh…. Chai! This is what U get for dating the President’s Daughter…
After sleeping angrily the previous night, a knock on my door woke me up which was time for our morning prayers. We prayed for so many things including safe arrival of our Dad and safe departure of Mirabel among others. We did our morning chores, bath then had breakfast. Mirabel’s bodyguards came and took her away, after saying her goodbyes to all of us and also promised to come around some other time.
I thought Nancy would be sad about Mirabel’s departure, but she seems to be happy which got me wondering. School resumes in one week time, But I would be leaving in two or more weeks. After much thought, I decided to go inside only to see Momma and Nancy happy over what they were checking out.
Me: What’s all this?
Nancy: Mirabel got all these for me and for Mummy
I saw lot’s of dresses, bags, shoes and jewelleries and an iPhone and an iPad. My eyes burst open.
I saw Momma admiring the wrappers Mirabel got her and Nancy using the iPhone with her teeths out.
Me: Is it iPhone 6?
Nancy: Yes bro,,, she’s so awesome! this is what i’ve been dreaming to have
Me: So Mummy got the ipad?
Me: Wait, how did she say it?
Nancy: How do u mean?
Me: As in,,, she didn’t mention me?
Nancy: No, why? she didn’t leave anything for u?
Me: Why would she leave anything for me, am i not the one who should be taking care of her? I only wanted to know if she mentioned my name
Me: Huh? No, Nothing precisely
Momma: Hope u don’t expect goodies from her?
Me: No I don’t,,, haba Mummy
Momma: See, I’m telling u today, don’t ask for anything from that girl. By the Grace and Mercy of God, your Father and I are here to provide for u because it’s our responsibility Okay?
Me: I know Mummy
Mummy: No let me talk,,, I have seen in the movies how boys use rich girls to get what they want and left them heart-broken, U better behave yourself. I hope u will never forget what happened to u when u toiled with the daughter of a soldier not to mention when u mess up with the daughter of the Commander In-Chief of the Armed forces
Me: I haven’t forgotten, thanks for always reminding me (Pissed)
Momma: Yes, if by reminding u every now and then will make u behave yourself,,, I will never stop updating it into your brain
Me: But Mummy trust the son u raised na
Me: And what’s funny to u?
Nancy: Uhmmm Mummy, we should be going to the shop now oh…
Momma: Yes o my daughter,,, take these things inside let’s go
Hhmmmmm….. I smell conspiracy.
**Later that day**
Dad arrived home, Momma had to close early from the shop to welcome her husband. He brought lots of goodies,,, that’s what i love about him. Before Momma and Nancy came, we had a little chat.
Boss: So you’re ok now?
(Yea that’s what i call him)
Me: Yes sir
Boss: Good,,, go and get me water from the Cway
Me: Ok sir
I rushed to the Cway, got the water, return back to him and gave him the water. After drinking, i collected the cup and took it back to it’s position. He stood up, probably going to his room. I heard the car horning at the gate, I ran to open it for Momma for to come in. She entertained her husband before we left for Church by 7pm.
We returned back from the mid-week service as we normally do every wednesday, everyone went straight to their rooms to drop their Bibles and also change dresses. Lest i forget, Mirabel called earlier and the following conversation ensued…
Mirabel: Hi dear, I’m home now
Me: At the villa?
Mirabel: Yes of course
Hhmmmm Presidential villa don turn home abi?
Me: Ok good, how was the little trip?
Mirabel: It was fine, except for the spoilt road at some parts of the road
Me: Maybe your dad hasn’t come to that part yet
Mirabel: I dunno what the FCT Minister is even doing in that office, imagine
Me: Don’t mind him (Not enjoying the topic) So how is my heart doing?
Mirabel: Very well but kinda not feeling too happy, Dad and Mom aren’t home. They both went different places, Dad went to Canada for a meeting or so and Mom went to Uganda for African’s First Ladies Conference, I’m feeling so lonely.
Me: Well, I’m not surprised for the whereabouts of your parents, having a whole Country on their shoulders is not an easy task
Mirabel: I know… Just can’t wait for school to resume lemme get away from here and be with who will there for me at all times
Mirabel: Yes ofcourse
Me: (smiling) And who is this person? (Teasingly)
Mirabel: Who else? If not you my love
Me: Me too can’t wait to get u under my arms again
Mirabel: Uhmmm…. that reminds me, when will u be coming to the Villa?
Me: I’m not sure yet, But until my Dad travels because Mum won’t be a problem
Mirabel: Okay, please u will need to bring Nancy along
Me: What? why??
Mirabel: She wants to come here and i promised her that she’ll come along with u whenever you’re coming.
Me: But u never told me about this before
Mirabel: I know… please baby do this for me pleaseeeee…
Me: Yea but if only we’d have some privacy, u know what i mean
Mirabel: What privacy? don’t tell me you’re thinking of having sex with me here?
Me: What? No! ofcourse not, come on,,, i mean, why would i even think of doing such? But…..
Me: Never mind, it’s nothing
Mirabel: What is it? Tell me
Me: It’s nothing really
Mirabel: Alright so what’s up?
Me: Just missing u very much
Mirabel: Missing u too, please try to inform me on when u will be coming ok?
Mirabel: And it should be very soon
Me: I will try, it solely depends on my Dad
Mirabel: Okay,,, U said he’s a chartered accountant right?
Mirabel: It’s a nice profession
Mirabel: U know what? leave your Dad to me, I just thought of something,,,, so don’t worry, your Dad won’t be a problem,,, I shall handle it
Well, base on how i watch Hollywood movies, if someone says a person won’t be a problem, the next thing that follows is some kind of a problem or even death. I hope that’s not the case here. Of course not!
Me: What do u mean by my Dad won’t be a problem?
Mirabel: Don’t u worry sweety, I will start working on it right away
Me: Okay,,, hope its for good?
Mirabel: It could even be for better if not the best, trust me dear
Me: That’s my baby,,, **Car horns** Got to go babe, I think my Dad is back
Mirabel: Okay,,,, Love u… please text me his official mail and don’t forget
Me: Alright i will that, Love more byeeee….
Dad: Who owns the phone you’re holding Nancy?
I raised my head up and saw her using the new iPhone Mirabel got for her.
If not for fact that i’m practically involved in this matter, i wouldn’t even try to meddle in the situation. If not for her stupidity, why’d she be using the new phone during dinning and in the presence of Dad. Her stupidity is becoming too much.
Me: I gave it to her Daddy, it was given to me by my friends who contributed money to purchase it for me as my birthday present
Mummy, Nancy and I looked ourselves in a suspicious manner.
After dinner, we all assembled in the living room pending 9:00pm where everyone can be eligible to go inside. Nancy was also there with us and not hiding at the dinning table this time because of Dad, he had seized her phone many times because of excess usage. So, she won’t be able to chat until past 9:00 when she’d escape to her room.
Boss: Lemme see the phone Nancy
She went to unplug it from where she’s been charging it and gave it to Dad
Boss: Which one is this one?
Nancy: It’s iPhone
Boss : It looks nice, so what will u do to the blackberry?
Nancy: I will still be using it Dad, i have another sim card that i need to be using
Dad: This one looks expensive, how much is it sold?
Nancy: Me i dunno oh…
Dad: Is there no receipt? or is it not a new phone?
Me: It was only the phone and it’s charger that was given to me
Boss: They should’ve given u receipt when they gave u the phone
He gave the phone back to her and faced the T.V
I already told mum to hid the iPad for the main time till Dad isn’t around of which she already did. For me, this is a disadvantage of having a learned mother, she will surely use the iPad instead of giving it to me. She’s on bbm, facebook and on whatsapp. My momma no dey gree oh…
I got a call from a friend, i went inside to get it. After the call, I dialled Mirabel’s.
Me: Hey babe, how u doing tonite?
Mirabel: Am fine,,, wah bout u?
Me: Good… I forgot to thank u earlier for the things u got for my Mum and my Sis, I really appreciate it dear, thank u very much.
Mirabel: And you’re so welcome
Me: So how is it going?
Mirabel: I’m still adjusting,,,, wait, it seems u haven’t seen what i got u or the small piece of note i left u
Me: No i haven’t, u got me something? (heart beating) where did u hide it?
Mirabel: Well, U will have to discover it yourself,,,, it’s there in your house (Smiling)
Me: So you’re not going to tell me?
Me: This is work na, it’s not fair oh
Mirabel: (Laughs) You’re on boo, do some house research
Me: No problem, I won’t kiss u when we meet
Me: What do u mean by that?
Mirabel: I approve of it
Me: What? it’s a lie, things aren’t approved that way, U will need to ask if i am sure but u didn’t asked,,, U just approved.
Mirabel: (Laughing) Okay, are u sure?
Me: Hell no!
We both burst into laughter
Me: Please babe, tell me what u did to our videotape that was uploaded on YouTube
Mirabel: Alright ermmnm, its like this… are u listening?
Me: Yea, loud and clear and even on record
Mirabel: Okay, it was my cousin living in the U.S that informed me about the video asking me if i knew anything about the upload. He owned an ICT Company there and he also do some special job for YouTube and other big companies. After he told me, i checked it out to confirm if it was really me which was actually us, I freaked out and immediately told him to do something about it as the number of views kept increasing. He said some people had downloaded the videotape and others even uploaded it to their website. He said he could do something about it though. I gave him the go ahead to rid of it. Then he hacked into the into the server of every site the videotape was uploaded to and got every copy of the video down. He also used the IP address of those that downloaded the video to hack their system and deleted the videotape.
Me: Woah,,, he must be a genius
Mirabel: Yea,,, that’s why he doesn’t come home much because the white men wouldn’t let him. He is well valued, he even married a white girl there, we had to attend the wedding from here.
Me: I will like to meet him one day
Mirabel: Sure,,, I told him about u already. We understood each other a lot. He also brought down everything that was tweeted about the videotape on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with his connections. Although, he spent lots of dollars to get it all done.
Me: U guys must be close
Mirabel: Very close,,,, we were almost inseparable when we were kids. Although he is almost 5 years older than me. He started in forth grade in the U.S and was stuck up at the top throughout his school. Always the best in the class, science fairs, he was even the prom king while the prom queen was his girlfriend who is now his wife.
Me: Woah,,, like a fairy-tale
Mirabel: Exactly what i told him about his life. He is currently working on his autobiography, to be launched probably in two years time.
Me: It’s really going to sell a lot
Mirabel: Yea, but he said the proceeds will be given to charity, both in Nigeria and in the U.S and i think it’s a great idea.
Me: Yea yea, sure its a wonderful idea,,, how old was he when he got married?
Mirabel: He was 23, he got married two years ago on the 4th of July,,, I can still remember that day vividly
Me: Sweetheart I’ve been waiting for u to tell me his name
Mirabel: Sorry my love, his name is Ikechukwu but he shortened it to Ike. Only close family members knows him as Ikechukwu
Me: He is igbo?
Mirabel: Yea, he’s Father is igbo,,, he married my Aunt, my Dad’s younger sister
Me: Okay,,, i see
Mirabel: Yea, enough talking about my cousin and let’s talk about us
Me: I like him
Mirabel: I can see that, but u don’t know him
Me: I’ve heard a lot about him already, i love his story which is like a fairy-tale and he saved my a$$ from that videotape that could be scandalous,,,, i really do like him a lot already
Mirabel: Okay then, I shall let u have a video chat with him on Skype when we get to school
Me: That would be great dear
Mirabel: Yea, and could be annoying too
Me: How do u mean?
Mirabel: U are dating his favourite sister Victor,,, be good is all i will tell u
Me: Now you’re scaring me
Mirabel: (Laughs) Don’t be scared, just don’t break his sister’s heart,,,, he has been very stubborn right from time. He promised me that he will deal with any guy so severely that will break my heart and make me cry. I just hope it doesn’t come to that ‘coz i know what he can do.
Me: I understand, i will the same for my sister. Excuse me love lemme bade my Parents good night
Mirabel: Ok your Dad is back?
Mirabel: Good for u unlike mine
Me: Well that’s for now, he might travel again anytime soon
Mirabel: U have no idea
Me: What do mean?
Mirabel: U don’t worry, I’m working on something and it’s pending as it is
Me: Hhmmmm… U and this your surprises u don’t share with me
Mirabel: Relax dear, its for good or don’t u trust me anymore?
Me: It’s really not about trust sweetheart, it’s about sharing. U know, sharing of ideas, problems, feelings and all that
Mirabel: Ok, yea that’s how it should be, i’ve read something like that before. Hhmmm… U read so much
Me: Thanks to my conversion that gave me the chance
Mirabel: I see… uhmmm
Me: Be right back lemme greet my Parents good night then we continue
After hanging up, I rushed to the living room. Dad was working with his computer while momma was watching her 9pm phillippians telenovela and Nancy has long gone into her room. I bade them good night then rushed back to my room and found my phone ringing. I checked it but it was an unknown caller.
Caller: Hi Victor,,, long time No see
** It was a feminine voice**
Me: Yes i guess, sorry who’re u?
Caller: Even though u blocked my other line, yet u dunno my voice?
I can only remember blocking Lola’s number and the voice i was hearing sounded like hers.
Me: It’d be good if u tell me who u are now because i have something important to get back to
Caller: By something important u mean Mirabel?
**Of course its Lola, who else**
Caller: It’s me dear
Me: What do u want?
Lola: Awwww that’s so harsh, don’t be like that. I bet u look cute on that face you’re putting on right now
Me: Lola i ask again, what do u want?
Lola: Come on Victor, let’s talk, it’s been a while
Me: Talk about what?
Lola: I know what Mirabel did, she told me everything. How u freaked out and all that
Me: I know that made u happy, but it’s in the past now, it’s all over
Lola: Are u sure about that?
Me: Of course, or u have something else to say?
Lola: Not really
Me: Okay, i got to go now
Lola: It’s okay, i shall get back to u. Don’t even think of blocking this line, because u won’t enjoy the outcome of it
Me: What? (Laughed) are u threatening me? what are u talking about?
Lola: I won’t say much buh, all i will say to u this night is that,,,, what u think is over is not yet started!
**She hanged up**
Me: Hellooo? Lola?!
I tried to call her back but it was switched off. I really don’t get it, what was she talking about? she seems to know what she’s talking about and sure of herself. Oh no i hate stuffs like this! I hate problems!!
Lola left me in a worried mood, I know she could be dangerous from her desperation. I wish this was a film trick. Maybe i should start writing about my life, after all i’ve always loved writing. I shall write about my life because it looks like a movie.
I couldn’t speak with Mirabel that night because of my current mood, so i texted her to let her know that something came up. Then i started thinking and imagining things with my heart full of worries.
In life, there is no Victory without Battle, No Man or Woman is free from Challenges. How u win depends on how u fight for Victory. Success doesn’t come on a platter of gold, the ability of manifesting your gifts depends on how u worked it out!
The morning came so late, or maybe it was because i didn’t really sleep that night. It was a Sunday so we started the necessary preparations for the Sunday’s service. We normally go to Church as early as 7:30 against 8:00 which was Sunday school service before the normal Church service at 9:00am. During our morning devotional, Daddy gave a Testimony.
Daddy: Last night when you all went to bed, when i was here (Living room) doing some work with my computer. I checked my E-mail, I received three mails from three large companies for me to Audit.
Nancy: Woa… that’s nice Daddy
Daddy: Yes, It’s a great one. It is a great favour and also a great challege, because i’ve never had this kind of opportunity before in my 9 years of Auditing. Three large companies at once, and their dates did not clash with the other, which means i shall do them one after the other. This is a big favour from God. The companies are Nestle Nigeria, First Bank PLC, and Flour Mills Nigeria.
Nancy: Daddy are u serious?
Daddy: Yes, and i shall be leaving for Lagos on Tuesday to process some things before starting the job on Monday next week. I can’t tell when i will return
Momma: We thank God, it’s a blessing, a wide door opened for us
Me: This is really great, it’s more than a open door, we should call it an Open Gate From Heaven
Nancy: Only God knows the amount of money Daddy will get from these jobs,,, i’m so happy!
Daddy: Like i said earlier, It is a great favour and also a great challenge. So i need God’s favour; wisdom, knowledge and understanding; His mercy and also the strength to do the work. So we are going to pray seriously for that this morning. But we are going to thank God first for the huge favour
Momma: The God that granted us this huge favour, will also favour u to do the work effectively
Daddy: You all will be praying oh,,, U know it’s not for me but all of us will benefit from it. Who knows, Victor may even go back to School with a car
Momma: Amen oh…
Oops! could this be good? that was when i remembered my range rover sport car which my Parents don’t know about. Well, Momma knows about Mirabel already so i will tell her about the car and to let her convinced Daddy not to buy me another car.
Nancy: Daddy what about me?
Daddy: I know U’ll want a promise Nancy, just let me do the job first before we exhaust an invisible money. Oya let us pray, we’re running late already.
We went to Church, the service was awesome. The Speaker was a guest Pastor and i was really blessed. Daddy also gave the testimony he testified earlier at home and the congregation rejoiced with him. After the service, we had to wait for Momma because she had to wait for their Women Fellowship Meeting. Dad and Nancy were inside the car. I leaned on our car replying messages on whatapp and forgot i had been trying to avoid someone. My ex girlfriend i didn’t date, Dorothy.
Dorothy: Hei Vickie
(Distracted from my chat, i raised my face to face her)
Me: D’thy how far
Dorothy: Fine oh, you’re waiting for your Mum right?
Dorothy: Me too (Leaning on the car right next to me) I’m so tired of this their meeting, almost every Sunday, imagine. Women and never-ending talks
Well, i quite agreed with her inside my mind because the worst thing is that, My Mum was the Leader.
Me: Yea, that’s how it is
Dorothy: So what’s up, with school and everything?
Me: Very well, I thank God
Dorothy: I’ve missed u so much, that your number hasn’t been going through or did u changed number?
She didn’t even know i blocked her line.
Me: Nope, still using the same line
Dorothy: Then why can’t reach u?
Me: Could be network or maybe u weren’t trying it
Dorothy: Of course i was, wait lemme try your number now (reaching for her hand bag)
My heart skipped, didn’t know what to do. Maybe i should quickly unblock her since i’m holding my phone
Dorothy: Oohhhh Daniel!
Dorothy: He’s having my phone. He always took it without my knowledge
Me: Come on, don’t be mad at him (I was happy) He’s your little bro and he looks up to u
Dorothy: Buh he should’ve ask me first
Me: Would u have given him silently?
Dorothy: He is still a boy, what does he know? he’ll just spoil my phone, i know how much i got that phone.
Me: Small boy at 14? U and I know Daniel is a smart boy. Besides he might just be playing games with it
Dorothy: That’s what he does, my phone is so full of games he downloaded and installed that are not deletable
Me: Not deletable?
Dorothy: Yea, and i don’t want to flash my phone
I laughed deep inside my heart on what i just heard, chai! I wish i could tell her how foolish she was. I have always known that her brother, Daniel is far smarter and intelligent than her, although he is very stubborn.
Me: Just let him use it, let him be learning from yours till he get he’s. Who knows, he might even teach u some things about phone day.
Dorothy: And be mocking me? just the other day he managed to show me how to upload profile picture on facebook and how to use voice note on whatsapp, he kept bragging about it since then
Me: He is just being proud of helping his elder sis, u know that kind thing na
Dorothy: Whatever, its annoying… So will u still be around?
Me: Not really, i will be leaving next week or upper week
Dorothy: There’s still time, i will check up on u tomorrow,,,, or even later today if you’ll be free
This girl won’t leave me alone,,, i don’t want her or whatever she has to offer.
Me: No u can’t come, u know my dad is around
Dorothy: But i’m not just any girl, your Parents knows me. My mother and your mother are good friends
Me: They will know something is fishy because u haven’t been visiting before, why today all of a sudden
Dorothy: U should quit being negative na, I promise to do whatever u want when i get there
Me: Whatever i want? (Tempted)
Dorothy: Yes i promise and i mean it
(No! devil is a liar!!)
Me: The thing is that, My Parents will at home, and We may also have visitors
Dorothy: What about tomorrow when Your Father go to his office and your Mother and Nancy to the shop?
Me: Worst, My Dad said, He will be taking me to His office for an orientation instead of staying at home doing nothing.
Dorothy: Then how about u come to my house later today? My Mother won’t be around, it’d fun just like before (Her Father was dead and her Mother was a big business woman).
Chai! bursted!! what excuse am i going to feed her with now?
Telling lies shouldn’t be an excuse from abstaining from sin, it’s like running from death to death. Be bold enough to say the truth at every given time even when they don’t believe or understand u for you’re not doing it for them, just know that your Father in Heaven knows what you’re doing. Your Father, Mother, Brother, Sister, Uncle, Aunty, Spouse or Master won’t kill U for telling the truth. It could be a means of obtaining Favour and Trust. U and I need BOLDNESS!!!
Me: Look D’thy, sincerely i don’t want to hang around with u. I am no longer that Victor that U use to know. We can just be normal friends and not with benefits. U really have to stop offering your body anyhow, it’s not good and u know it when u think about it the right way, even toda…
Momma: (coming) oya let’s go let’s go
Dorothy: Good afternoon ma
Momma: Afternoon my dear,,,,, Victor (Getting into the car)
Dorothy: Bye ma
Momma: Eh ehn… bye my dear, take care
Dorothy left after looking at me some how without saying a word to me. I entered the car and we zoomed off.
We got home, had lunch, rested a little then spoke with Mirabel on phone… I even told her about the good news and she claimed responsibility for it, that she did it. I appreciated her for the huge favour. She also told me that, My Dad will go places because of what she did through her connections and also be a big deal in ICAN (Institute Of chartered Accountants Of Nigeria). She advised that, My Dad should do his best so that he’ll get personal favours and good deals from very big businessmen.
Woah,,, I can’t believe how my life is going smoothly, peacefully and sweet,,, This is surely the hand work of God. My life hadn’t have turned this way if i hadn’t changed from my bad ways. I believe God punished me so that i will follow the right path and also fulfill the life He has orchestrated for me. I really thank God for His Goodness, Faithfulness, Love and His Mercy.
I had my siester, after that, we held our House Cell Meeting which lasted for an hour. I became bored,,,, I can’t play my Play station game because Dad was in the Living room watching ChannelsTV. The Tv in my room is faulty and i left my laptop at my school house (The house Mirabel left for me to use). I don’t enjoy playing games with my phone,,, I think i need an iPad for games. One thought led to another, so i decided to spend time on Facebook. I came across a page that posts stories, i checked on a story which was on Episode 17 and saw lots of good comments. I decided to follow the story, i wasted lots of MB because of pages i had to load before getting to the Episode 1 and pages i had to load again in order to continue the story. I read to Episode 26 and couldn’t further because the person posting it stopped there. I really need to continue the story, so i thought of trying Google because i know it got answers to almost everything. The story was titled “Adebimpe The Facebook Girl” i really liked it. It was written by one Onihaxy.
I searched and i got many results,,, i clicked on one link, the site was so disorganized for me to understand. I left it because i got other options from Google, I clicked on another link and it was the same thing, I clicked on another link and i discovered that the one i read was the season 2. I couldn’t find the season 1 in the site so i checked in another site. In this site, the Story was arranged from Season 1 to 4, I started reading from the season 1 till i got exhausted, i explored the site and discovered many Stories and many talented writers.
Even after saying good night to my Parents, i still continued the Story on my bed till i decided to sleep around 2am and woke up past 5am by Momma for our morning devotion.
Daddy left for Lagos on Tuesday as he said, I requested permission from Momma to go to Aso rock (Presidential villa) to see Mirabel and Nancy will go with me. She obliged saying it would be a 3-day visit because she don’t like being alone. She was still on the process of getting another house help since she let the previous one go because of me. Why? well,,, ermmm, Momma caught us in the act on three different occasions. She knew i’m a changed person now, that’s why she reconsidered having another house help.
I informed Mirabel about our visiting on Thursday, She sent her bodyguards to pick us with a cool tinted SUV ride which we were later told by the guards that the car was bullet proof. They came on Wednesday evening and lodged in a hotel before coming to our house the following morning. Mirabel sent many stuffs for my Momma through her bodyguards Frank and Jummy who happens to be secret lovers. On our way to Aso Villa, Nancy was far more excited than i am. She claimed to fully charged her phones so she’d take enough photos when she gets there.
Me: Hello Mummy
Momma: Victor you have to start coming home immediately, your Daddy called that he is in the airport on his way back
Me: What? But i thought he won’t be coming back anytime soon?
Momma: Yes,,, he said he forgot some important documents and hard drive that he will use for the job, that he underestimated the job not realizing how big the job is. Are u there already?
Me: No, but we’re almost there. we’ve passed the first two gates already
Momma: U have to turn around now and get here before your Dad gets here before u
Me: But Mummy,,, Isn’t there a way u can cover for us?
Momma: No way, what do u want me to tell him? did we inform him that you and Nancy will be going out to anywhere?? Besides, U know i don’t lie,,,, not to you or to anyone else most especially not to my husband,,, call Mirabel and tell her what happened. It’s better to unintentionally disappoint your girlfriend than deceiving your father. I’m still feeling guilty for the one u did the other day
Me: Okay ma, we’ll be on our way back
Nancy: What?! what’s going on?
Me: Frank we have to go back, something came up
Frank: What about Mirabel?
Me: I will call her on phone and explain to her
Jummy: Hope it’s nothing serious?
Me: Not at all,,,, just that, Daddy is on his way back home
Jummy: Ohhh… can’t Mirabel do anything about it?
Me: I don’t think so,,, he actually forgot something very important for the job
Frank: Hard luck bro (Chuckles)
Nancy: But Dad hardly forget anything, why today of all days?
Me: Mummy said he didn’t know the job will be that big,,, that the documents is essentially necessary for the job
Nancy: Oh no,,, what will i tell my friends now?
Me: U told your friends? why are u so stupid?
Nancy: But bro i don’t see anything wrong with that
Frank: U shouldn’t have done that Nancy,,, it’s not save. Please don’t do that mistake next time
Me: That’s if there will be a next time
Nancy: Am sorry senior bro nau,,, am i forgiven?
Me: Yes u are
Nancy: Thanks bro,,, hope i will join u next time?
Me: Not a chance
Nancy: Haba bro nau,,, pleaseeeee…?
Me: Just let me be, i have a lot in my mind to think about so please don’t add yours to it
I took my phone and placed a call on Mirabel and told her about the setback. She was really sad about it, she said, she’s made all necessary arrangements for our stay. I apologized to her of which she sadly accepted.
We got home before Dad came later in the evening. After three days of his stay, the job got postponed till upper week Monday which unfortunately, i won’t be able to make it to Mirabel’s invitation because i will be gone to school by then. She tried her connection to cancel the postponement but was an abortive attempt because the company wasn’t ready. The company will have to produce every necessary documents before the audit can take place. Nancy was deeply hurt, she felt so disappointed.
I can’t tell my Dad about Mirabel, He wouldn’t tolerate me having a girlfriend,,, he’s so strict about it. Even when i got into trouble with those soldier women, left for him he wanted me to remain there as long as it would satisfy them.
Dorothy came to my house on a Sunday, she came to my room when i was sleeping, she got her self naked and tried to get me naked as well (I was sleeping shirtless) before i woke up to see what she was trying to do.
Although, I initially woke up thinking someone was trying to kill me or something, so i rose up aggressively and pushed the intruder away immediately before i could even know who the person was.
Me: D’thy? what are u trying to do??
Dorothy: Relax Vickie (crawling towards me) I promise i won’t scream like i use to
In this kind of situation, i had to insult her harshly so she’ll get angry and leave me alone,,, besides, she can’t tempt me because i don’t like her. Actually, i hate her but i won’t admit it because it’s not proper to hate someone.
Me: Is this how desperate and cheap u are? do u know why i can’t fall for your pleas? it’s because i hate u with passion, i hate seeing u entirely because of how cheap u are. You’re such a biatch!
Dorothy: What? all these coming out from your mouth Victor? Yea i act like a biatch, i do behave like a w—e i know. But do u know i only do that when i’m around u? Go find out about me and get to know the kind of person i am. Go tell them that you’ve had sex with me and see what their reaction will be like.
Me: What are u trying to say?
Dorothy: No guy has ever kissed me not to mention have sex with me if not u alone. I should proof it? U deflowered me didn’t u?
**I didn’t say anything,,, but i did what she was asking me**
Dorothy: Answer me (sounding like she wanted to cry) why can’t u answer me? How old was i when u deflowered me? I was 17. Although i planned not to do anything like that until i clock 18 but it was u,,, you’ve always been my crush. Even when u were dating girls anyhow u wanted, i didn’t stop liking u, even though i felt bad about it. I broke my 18-years rule the day i had sex with u. I opened my legs for u whenever u wanted thinking it’s the only way i could have u for myself, i waited for u to officially ask me to date u but u never did. I’m still intact as u left me,,, I can still give u the chance here and now even if its for a minute to confirm if i’m lieing or not.
**Speechless and confused me**
Dorothy: I’m not a b—h Victor (Now dressing up) I have never been one except to u i guess… thanks for all the insults,,, i brought this upon my self anyway
(Grabbed her hand bag and left)
I didn’t know what to say,,,, i dropped back unto the bed to think about the drama that just happened about a minute ago. I think i am the bad guy in this situation,,, i felt terrible. I didn’t know about all what she said, I have always seen her as a free giver not sure of who she’s given though.
I went to her house the next day, her mother wasn’t around and she was in her room with two of her friends who i also thought was in the same category with her, but who am i to judge what i don’t know?
I sent her younger brother to call her for me, she sent him back to me that she doesn’t want to see me. I sent him back to her again with a message that, I won’t leave there until i see her. She eventually showed up about 38 minutes later while i was already enjoying the movie i was watching,,,, “Fast & Furious” to be precise.
Dorothy: What do u want now? or have u come for the continuation of your insults??
Me: Look D’thy…
Dorothy: Call me Dorothy please
Me: All the same, I came here to apologize for everything i did to,,,, I am really sorry. I regretted everything i did.
Dorothy: Are u done?
Me: See,,, I know i messed with u,I abused your feelings, I toiled with your emotions and all that,,,, I regretted my bad deeds towards u and to everyone it affected including myself. I called u names,,, I had the wrong impression about u. It was even the wrong impression i had that developed my anger and dislike towards u. I beg for your forgiveness Dorothy, please forgive me and let’s be friends again
Dorothy: Friends again U say? were we ever friends before?? U made me your sex mate and nothing else. U are a devil Victor! U used me, dumped me and then hate me for nothing. What did i ever do to u? is it a crime to give u my body just to get u to love me??! I gave u my everything,,, my body, any money i get i gave to u just for u to love and ask me out,,,, but what did i get? Pregnancy!!
Dorothy: Oh yes u heard me right! I put my life on the line when i had an abortion not to mention the torture i got from my mother. She tortured me for getting pregnant and even dealt with me more, when i couldn’t provide the person responsible for it just to protect u. But what did i get? insults!! I overlooked u the other Sunday when U treated me that way, I just reached an understanding that maybe it was the preaching that manifested in u, not knowing that u really hate me.
Me: I’m terribly sorry for everything i put u through,,, I never knew u went through all that. I can imagine the kind of pain you’re feeling deep inside your heart right now because of me. I wish there’s something i can do to erase the past, but there’s nothing i can do but to plead for your forgiveness. (I went down on my knees) please forgive me Dorothy from your loving and humble heart, I beg of u…
**Her eyes was already filled with tears**
She raised me up and hugged me
Dorothy: U really hurt me Victor
Me: I know, and i am very sorry,,,, can i resume calling u D’thy now?
Dorothy: If u wish
We disengaged from the hug,,, I noticed she was trying to draw her head closer to kiss me or something….
Me: So,,, am i forgiven?
Dorothy: Hhmmmm,,,, just partially
Me: Partially? why?
Dorothy: If u want my full forgiveness, U will have to do something for me
Me: Something like?
Dorothy: U don’t worry about that, I shall let u know when i’m ready for it
We talked and gisted about so many things,,, I also confessed blocking her line from calling me. I unblocked her on the spot while we were still talking before her friends showed up from inside.
Dorothy: Oh,,,, I even forgot they’re here,,,, Hey girls
Girl1: U try well well no be small
Dorothy: Make una no vex jare. Victor these are my besties, Mirabel and Salome aka Sally Cue
Dorothy: Yea,,, and Sally Cue.
Me: Okay nice meeting u girls
Mirabel: Nice meeting u too
Sally Cue: It’s nice meeting u too
**Mirabel laid on the couch while Salome abi Sally Cue sat at the other end**
Sally Cue: Msteeeew,,, that’s why i hate this chair, i can’t watch the TV comfortably
She stood up from where she sat and sat right beside me. I stood up to leave after seating uncomfortably for many minutes.
They eventually let me go after a little debate on why i’m leaving too soon. I got home, continued the story i was reading online. Later on,,, Mirabel and i spoke on phone and i also chatted with Dorothy on whatsapp.
Dorothy: My friend SallyCue seems to like u
Me: Stop the joke please
Dorothy: I’m being serious, she admitted it,,, although i warned her to get her mind off u
Dorothy: Never mind,,,, what do u have for me?
Me: Nothing o,,, just feeling sleepy
Dorothy: Hhmmm *sad face*
I just sent her a flower then bade her goodnight and went offline.
The next day, I told momma about my car,,,, that i don’t want another car from Dad. But she wasn’t happy about it. She doesn’t like the idea of a girl spending for a guy,,, She advised me again telling me all sort of things. She said that, she’ll also talk to Mirabel about it, to stop spending on me. She continued saying that, She can use her money to support your home when u get married if possible and not to be spending on me anyhow now. Telling me to wise up and be the man in the relationship and not otherwise. She added that she will be sending me extra money apart from my Dad’s so that i won’t depend on Mirabel. It was then she understands why i don’t call home for money when I’m in school. She made me promise to be man enough like my Father.
I didn’t enjoy her advise at first, but when i later think about it,,, she’s absolutely right.
Later that day, I decided to call my Uncle the Engineer… But he didn’t pick up, he could be busy or something.
I called Promise, we spoke for a while about when we’re resuming because the school has resumed already. She said she will resume next week, i told her i will be leaving home next tomorrow. She then changed her mind to resume in three days time.
I called Mirabel, and the following conversation ensued after the pleasantries…
Me: I shall be leaving home in two days time and u still haven’t told me about the stuff u hid for me
Mirabel: (Laughs) Did u even try to find it at all?
Me: Well, i did tried
Mirabel: I doubt if u put in your best to find it,,, I know u. Check inside your old school bag u hung on the wall
Me: U came to my room?
Mirabel: Yep, Nancy gave me a tour
Me: So, she knew about the stuff?
Mirabel: Yep but not the content
Me: Okay, i will check it out after the call, So when are u going to school?
Mirabel: You’re going next tomorrow right?
Me: Yep if nothing comes up
Mirabel: Okay, see u then
Me: Next tomorrow?
Me: Great, i miss u so much
Mirabel: I miss u too sweetie
After a little more chat, we ended the call. I went straight to my old school bag to fish out the stuff. I saw a parcel, i brought it out and sat on my bed to rip the wraps open …
I picked it up.
Me: Hello Sir
Uncle: How are u? I saw your missed call
Me: I’m fine sir,,, I just called to hear from u
Uncle: Okay, I was busy supervising a building site. So how’s everything, studies and all?
Me; All fine sir, but I’m at home still on break
Uncle: Okay, it’s alright. Call me when u get back to school
Me: Okay, bye sir
Uncle: Okay, greet Naomi for me
That’s what he calls Nancy, saying he don’t like the name ‘Nancy’
Me: I will sir and greet Jonas and Justina for me
Uncle: They’ll hear,,,,, take care ko
Me: Yes sir
I ripped off the wraps, it was an iPad and a 4G SMILE wireless modem. Then i saw a piece of note that read….
“The small device is a 4G wireless modem containing 10gigabybe of data that u can be using without subscribing with your phone anymore. It will be renewed every month but u shouldn’t worry about the subscription, it’s in place to be renewed automatically and u will be getting 10gigabyte of data every month. The wireless password is ************ and please share with Nancy, it can cover the whole house. It’s charger is in there, U charge it when the battery runs out.
The iPad is yours baby, go to the video folder and see something.
Bye for now my love”
Woah! Unlimited data for me,,,, enough internet activities for me. My happiness faded a little when i remembered what Momma told me.
I switched on the iPad, and went straight to the video folder, there was only one video in it. I opened it and saw that it was the video tape of us kissing on campus. I was like what?!
I quickly placed a call on her and she picked up almost immediately
Me: Hello Mirabel
Mirabel: Hi sweetheart, I’ve been expecting your call
Mirabel: Not really, I believe U’ve seen the package?
Me: Yeah,,, Thanks sweetheart, i appreciate it big time but,,,, what’s the video for?
Mirabel: U don’t like it?
Me: No as in, I thought u and your cousin got rid of it all?
Mirabel: Yea, It’s kinda romantic so i kept the last copy for myself and u, but it seems u don’t like it
Me: Not like that babe,,, its just that, u and your cous did a lot to get it off the internet and individual’s devices, so what if it get leak again?
Mirabel: Who is going to leak it? Me or u?
Me: Babe, U should understand that anything can happen,,, it’s truly romantic, i know, and it can be a good memory of us being together but anything can happen dear
Mirabel: What can happen?
Me: If anyone apart from u and i get to know about it, then it’s out
Mirabel: How can u be so sure?
Me: I watch a lot of movies babe
Mirabel: So, U are telling me that, Lola and Cynthia can’t be trusted?
Me: What? They know about it?
Mirabel: Sure, it was even their idea to keep it and share to u as well
Me: Tell me, who specifically brought the idea?
Mirabel: Lola,,, why?

Me: Mirabel, the videotape should be our 100% privacy until we’re clear to take our relationship public. Our Parents needs to approve our relationship so that, whenever anything as such gets to the internet, it will be a news and not a scandal.
Mirabel: Baby, what can i do?
Me: Tell me where u keep the videotape
Mirabel: It’s in my iPad, my computer and i backed it up in my external drive.
Me: Your friends have access to your iPad and computer right?
Me: Mirabel there are things that i need to tell u about,,, but that’d be when we meet. For now, U should delete the video from your iPad and computer then hide the external drive in a secret place.
Me: Or u can back it up with your genius cousin Ike and get rid of the drive.
Me: Sweetheart, please watch your friends closely,,, they might be something else
Mirabel: Why did u say that?
Me: We’ll talk about that when we meet,,, do u trust me?
Mirabel: Of course! and with all my heart
Me: Good, and u know i will never do anything that’d hurt u
Mirabel: Yes i know,,, what’s all this about dear?
Me: Nothing much, just investing my innocence and good intentions towards u, just in case something comes up in the nearest future
Mirabel: Is that so?
Mirabel: I hope u are not doing anything illegal in the course of our relationship?
Me: **Laughs** illegal?
Mirabel: Yes illegal, and u know what that means
Me: I know dear, I’m very clean
Mirabel: I know my love
Me: Thanks again for the gifts, i really appreciate it
Mirabel: Thanks for accepting it
Me: She’s even thanking me again, woah,,,, what a lovely girlfriend I’ve got, I’m so lucky to have u
Mirabel: I’m happy to have u too,,, Mum knows about u already
Me: Your mum the first lady?
Me: How? when? is she Ok with it? what did she say?
Mirabel: Relax love, Mum is the best, and so my Dad
Me: U haven’t answered my question
Mirabel: I guess we’ll have a lot to talk about when we meet at school
Me: What does that mean?
Mirabel: I will answer your question when we meet, or we should shift it to tomorrow?
Me: No, I’m not prepared for tomorrow, i will wait till we meet
Mirabel: Its Okay…
Me: So,,, goodnight?
Mirabel: Alright dear, lemme take a shower
Me: May i join u?
Mirabel: Only if u can
Me: Yea i can’t now, maybe when we get back to School
Mirabel: Good night sweetheart, love u…
Me: Love u too
Well, well, well,,,, Little by little our relationship is going forward. Both our mothers knows about our relationship, now remaining the bosses, our fathers.
I took my new iPad and wireless modem and started browsing immediately, It’s so fast. I set everything in the iPad, my google account, whatsapp, Facebook among others. I downloaded more than 15 applications and over 20 games.
I spent my night on the internet browsing and downloading till dawn. After the morning activities, Momma and Nancy left for the shop leaving me and the boss at home. The boss was in the parlor working with his laptop, he goes to his office anytime he likes because he is the boss and he can work at home using his laptop. I called Mirabel, recited a poem for her and professed my love for her. I silence my phone before i went to my bed to have a cool sleep. I had a daymare, I saw myself getting married to Lola, and i wasn’t happy . It was as if i was forced to marry her. Something was about to happen when the minister asked if there’s anyone here that have a reason why the two of us should not be together, I saw someone like a figure from afar,,, i felt some kind of feeling instantly before i was interrupted by the boss (my dad) he called me to open the gate for him that he’s going to the office.
After he left, I tried to sleep again but i couldn’t sleep anymore. I kept thinking about the dream, why did i dream of getting married to Lola of all people, and who was the one that wanted to crash the wedding?
I had to pray seriously that moment using Isaiah 7:7 to terminate the dream from ever coming to pass. I struggled with courage to wash my clothes as i will be leaving the following day,,,, i so much hate washing. Why? because i started washing my clothes when my elder sister Joy got married last year and left our house. Thank God there is a washing machine at the house Mirabel gave me to live in. After washing, i spent the rest of my day on the internet, without even checking the games and apps i downloaded. I met new cool friends online especially at mindblowingstories i love online friends better than close ones.
Later in the night, the Boss called me to his room to talk as Father and Son.
Boss: U are my son, and i expect to see myself in u,,, but it doesn’t seem so yet. Why I’m trying to trust u now is because, many youths of our society start doing wayward life on higher institutions but instead, u got better. Your mother has been very happy and pleased with u recently, she says you’ve really changed, that u are now a good sensible boy and all that. For me, its your grades in school that will make me to trust u completely. If your first semester result comes out, and u performed well beyond my expectations,,,, Then i will purely understand what your mother has been telling me, I will surprise u, I will provide for u whatever u will need, i will support u in any way that will enhance your motivation. I thank God for blessing me with those jobs, with it and other connections from it will make me fulfill my promise. For these jobs has increased my level, professionals higher than me were dropped because of me. I don’t know how it happened but i know its a favour from God. So please, make me believe in u, so that i can trust and know that u won’t cause any trouble, then i can fight for u no matter what to prove my son’s innocence. Are u following?
Me: Yes sir
Boss: Good,,,, as u are going back to school, do not keep bad companies, be prayerful, study hard and make me proud. Stay away from girls,,, Victor stay away from girls,,,, that’s the area that i don’t trust u with…. i know what I’m saying,,, abstain from them completely. It’s better to keep one than be flirting around,,, but I’m not telling u to be in relationship yet. U may probably get my blessing and the go ahead to have a girlfriend on three conditions. First and fore-most, your first year results must please me, both first and second semesters,,,, secondly, u must introduce her to me and your mother, which means,,,, you will have her as your future wife and that’s if i find her suitable and worthy. And thirdly which is very important even to God,,,, U must not have sex with her and to anyone else. For it is only for married couples. Do I make myself clear?
Me: Yes sir
Boss: Do we understand each other?
Me: Yes Boss,,,, sorry, sir
Boss: So u will go and write down everything u need, sum it and bring it to me
Me: Ok sir
He then prayed blessings for me before i left his room to write down my needs.
I didn’t even know what to write, i feel like I’m okay. My bank account is still intact, i didn’t use the money that was sent to me when i was in school. I just wrote down some things with a total of #6,800 and gave to him. He looked at the paper and looked at me, he looked at the paper again and then went inside to his room and came with some Naira in his hand and gave to me.
Boss: That’s 20,000 you’re holding, U may need it for other expenses
Me: Thank u sir.
Boss: Its okay…
Momma also gave me her own piece of advice, both morally, educationally and otherwise. She asked how much my Dad gave me, I told her the amount,,, she then gave me #25,000 and promised to backup some money in my bank account. I tried to resist it but she insisted and left me with no choice.
I felt like too much money, i gave Nancy #5,000 and she hugged me crazily and happily.
The following morning, after our morning activities, i started getting ready to leave anything 11am. Momma arranged foodstuffs for me of which i declined the ones i don’t like such as beans. I only collected small quality of it so i can prepare it with rice.
After much preparation, i left some few minutes past 11 and arrive my apartment about an hour later. Did i mentioned where i was schooling? OK, I was schooling at the University Of Abuja studying Business Administration.
I informed Mirabel of my arrival, she said she’ll join me shortly. I also informed my Parents. My uncle told me to call him when i get to school but i don’t want to,,,, I know he wants to give me money.
I was about doing some clean up before i discovered that the place is even tidier than the way i left it. I was surprised a little because i was relieved from doing the cleaning. So,,, who else could have done it if not my lovely Mirabel. But how??
*I quickly dialed her line*
Mirabel: Hello dear
Me: Sweetheart,,, how did u do it?
Mirabel: Do what?
Me: The house, its cleaned up
Mirabel; Oh yea,,,, I sent some cleaners with my guards to get it done. Hope they did well?
Me: Sure, they did great. Thanks dear,
Mirabel: Its okay… i think its my duty to clean for my boo especially when he’s too lazy for house chores
Me: I’m not lazy
Mirabel: I know, that’s why i said for house chores,,,, U re lazy on that
Me: No I’m not
Mirabel: Ok tell me, what do u do at your family house? And how often do u do your laundry?
Me: Well,,, there’s nothing much to do there and Mother and Nancy takes care of the few ones
Mirabel: There u go,,,, there are some little things that u should be doing at home sweetheart
Me: But i mop the floor
Mirabel: After Nancy sweep the floor right? Why can’t u sweep and mop alone? Imagine, u started washing your own clothes just last year
Me: What? Who told u that?
Mirabel: Oops! Never mind, I will be with u shortly,,,,, and I’m coming with food. Not fried rice though, love u…
Chai! Nancy is a traitress!
Few minutes later, I went to the gate to check who was horning,,,, The car doesn’t look familiar but i know it was Mirabel, she got another ride for another semester,,, cool. She drove in, parked, and then alighted from the car were Cynthia, Mirabel and Lola.
But she didn’t tell me that she’ll be coming over with them,,,, Chaai Mirabel!
Cynthia: Hi Victor?
Me: Hello Cynthia,,, long time
Mirabel ran towards me and gave me a cool romantic hug,,, I lifted her up and turned her around romantically and we shared a cool kiss while i was still holding her before i dropped her to her feet.
Mirabel: I’ve missed u so much
Me: I miss u too…
Lola: Hello Vames **Smiling**
Me: Lola, how are u? how’d u know that name?
Lola: Why don’t u usher us in? instead of questioning us under this scorching sun **helping herself in**
Cynthia looked around then joined Lola
Mirabel: Let’s go in na **pulling me**
Me: I thought u were coming alone so we can talk alone
Mirabel: Yeah,,,, but they insisted on coming, that they would be bored at the lodge
Me: We have some serious issues to tackle,,,, so how can we get to talk privately?
Mirabel: Serious issues? what are u talking about?
Me: I will tell u everything when we get to talk
Mirabel: Okay uhmmm,,,, I will let them go while i spend the night here
Me: Ok good
Mirabel: Till then,,,, let’s go in
Mirabel: What now? They’re waiting for us
Me: **drawing her closer** Do u know how much i’ve missed your kisses?
Mirabel: Not now Victor
Me: Come on…
Mirabel: I miss u too but now is not the right time,,, I thought we have some serious issues to tackle?
Me: Yeah… but my mind doesn’t recognize the right time for kissing u,,, U should know that with u, every time is right…
She started blushing while i draw her and placed my lips on hers and she responded….
Lola: The food is getting cold,,, do u guys mind? **Went back in**
What will i do to this Lola sef??
Mirabel: Sorry dear, we’re coming in now….. Victor i’m going in now
We went in together, Mirabel served the food. I don’t know why she’s the one doing it while Cynthia and Lola were there. The food wasn’t fried rice and the drink wasn’t hollandia yoghurt but the food was irish potatoes with egg and fried chicken with some kind of spice I’ve never seen before,,,,, with one nice orange juice like that which i later discovered that it was imported.
Cynthia and Lola ate on their own, while Mirabel and I ate together but not in a romantic way because i wasn’t comfortable with Lola’s presence.
After eating,,,, she (Mirabel) took all the dishes to wash. Her humbleness surprised me a lot,,, how can she, being the leader of their friendship and the President’s Daughter be be doing dishes for her friends?? I really can’t understand why.
I helped her in the dishwashing of which she tried to decline but i superseded her. We wouldn’t had completed the dishes without some cool kisses initiated by me…. we were yet interrupted by that Lola again!
Lola: **Clears throat** Do u have korean movies in this house? I’m bored
*This girl is annoyingly funny sha*
Mirabel: Lola, there’s no Korean movie here
Lola: But he lives here, let him answer,,, he might have, who knows…
Me: Mirabel answered u correctly Lola,,,, I don’t even watch Koreans
Lola: What? Why?? they’re really good, U will love their movies just try it and see
Me: Okay,,, maybe I’ll try it out some time
Lola: Yeah u should,,,, first u should try City hunter, Coffee prince, Playful kiss or Personal taste, Sea god or even Fugitive: Plan B it’s awesome.
Lola: OMG! Please try as much as possible to watch Boys Before Flowers,,, I love the movie like crazy
Mirabel: Lola follow me let’s talk
Lola: Talk about what?
Mirabel: Follow me
Lola: Okay, alright
Mirabel: I mean now**walks away**
Lola: I’m coming oh…..
Vames sweetheart,,, long time no see
I boldly brought out my phone from my pocket and start recording,,, I did it boldly so she won’t notice my real motive.
Me: What do U want from me?
Lola: **laughs** Is that a question?
Me: Yes it is a question and i demand an answer
Lola: I don’t need anything from U dear,,, wake up boo
Me: I don’t understand
Mirabel: **cuts in from distance** Lola!!!
Lola: Hey I’m coming! got to go handsome,,, your girlfriend needs my attention *she winked at me and left*
That’s how the witch left without leaving any evidence for me to hold against her.
I didn’t know what they talked about…. Later in the evening, Mirabel and I lay on the couch together waiting for Lola and Cynthia to get going but they seem to be very comfortable.
Mirabel: Don’t u girls have any where to go? No party? No clubbing No dates and all?
Lola: Since when do u care about that? Or aren’t u the one preaching change on us?
Mirabel: Ok now U have changed?
Lola: Errrmmmmm,,,, I just don’t feel like going anywhere. We just arrive campus na, we’ll rest for today
**58 minutes later**
Mirabel: U girls can go,,,, I will spend the night here. Lola? Cynthia? Cynthia? Lola?! Lola wake up jare! **Hitting them to wake**
Lola: **Sleepy** allow person to sleep na
Mirabel: U should go to the lodge then, before it gets too late. Lola? Lola!
Lola is really a witch!
Mirabel: (Whispering to me) What should we do now?
Me: We’ll leave them let them sleep here while we go inside the room
We went inside the room, Mirabel had a shower. She told me to join her of which i jumped up to feet before she declared that she was only joking. I told her that i will only shower that night if only i join her,,, She told me to suit myself.
She came out after a few minutes
Mirabel: Its your turn
Me: Did we arrange for that?
Mirabel: Alright, go and shower
Me: I’m okay….
Mirabel: But u stinks
Me: I told u that, i won’t shower if not with u,,,, so I’m keeping to my word
Mirabel: Okay,,,, but u will keep your distance oh,,, and we’ll only talk
Me: (Seductively) Are u sure about that?
Mirabel: Hold it there, don’t even think about it…
Mirabel: I’m very serious (boldly)
Me: Okay,,, its alright, i didn’t intend to do anything anyway
Mirabel: Says your mouth but can that thing down there attest to that? (Using her face to point at my private area that is nodding on its own)
Me: Hey stop looking at it,,,, it got mind on its own and its alive because of the available frequency
Mirabel: So I’m the frequency?
Me: Yes of course, its not my fault that its nodding like that. I can only control it as its master but can’t stop it from nodding to available frequency. Its like that, so can we talk now?
Mirabel: Alright, what is it that u want to tell me about ?
Me: Its about your’ fr……
**Knocks on the door twice then came in without waiting for permission**
Lola: I need to take a shower, sorry i had to wear this, can’t find anything else to put on **walks into the bathroom**
She was wearing my shirt. I was stunned and speechless so was Mirabel.
She finally came out after spending almost 30 minutes in the bathroom. She laid on the floor
Lola: Goodnight guys,,,, woah the floor is so cool
I thought Mirabel was going to get angry and react, but she actually looks as if she wanted to laugh while i was burning inside of me
Before i could say ‘Mi’ the door opened without knocking
Cynthia: (Sleepy) So all of u camped here and left me all alone in the parlor,,,, msteeeww **She also laid on floor side by side with Lola**
Mirabel started laughing out,,, I looked at her with an angry face.
EPISODE 18 & 19
During the night, I felt something rubbing my feet up to my leg,,, I quickly grabbed my phone and switched on the light to the direction only to see Lola smiling at me by this time of the night **What a witch** I adjusted and laid back, this time holding Mirabel very closely till i managed to sleep. I woke up the following morning feeling a slight headache but kept it to myself not telling Mirabel. I was alone in the room when i woke up,,, I went to check if they were still around, I got to the parlor and heard their voices in the kitchen. I went back inside to brush my teeth and had my bath as well. Of course I didn’t feel good when Mirabel said I stinks last night.
Mirabel: Honey where are you?
Me: I’m in the bathroom
Mirabel: Ok hurry up’ Breakfast is served
Me: Alright give me a minute
Mirabel: Or may I join you?
**She wants to trick me again, once bitten twice shy**
Me: No need for that, I will be done in a minute
Mirabel: Are you sure you don’t want me to come?
Mirabel: Okay,,, I will be with the girls in the guest room
Me: Wait dear were you serious about joining me?
Mirabel: (Laughs) Of course not, enjoy your bath dear
*Hhmmmm,,,, bitten twice*
I had my bath, dressed up then went for breakfast. I got ready to leave, I told Mirabel to come back later in the day to talk on the matter at hand, She agreed to come before they left. Home alone and you know what that means,,, thinking of what to do to while away time and other weird imaginations. First thing i tried to was to watch TV, I got bored and switched to video games before i realized something. That I have always wanted to use my laptop to surf the internet. Now I have the means with my Smile 4G wireless modem. I dashed to my room at once to get my laptop and wireless modem. I got them, switched them on, connected the laptop with the wireless modem and gained internet access in no time and i let out a satisfactory smile. I downloaded so many softwares that i have always wished to have in my system. They seized the power, I on the generator because I was so into the internet and can’t leave it not even for a minute. I was so in to it that i didn’t know when i passed lunch time, yet I didn’t feel hungry but I’m actually hungry
Me: Hello Promzy
Promise: Hi are you at home?
Me: Yeah, what’s up?
Promise: I’m around, on my way to your place
Me: Okay,,, please do me a favour
Me: Errmmmm,,, help pass by an eatery and buy me something to eat,,,, something simple like maybe meatpie and burger,,, don’t worry about drink, I have some
Promise: I haven’t even agreed yet and you’re already telling me what to do
Me: I know you can’t refuse me
Promise: Really? what if i don’t have enough money with me??
Me: Please Promzy, I will pay you as soon you get here,,, I’m very hungry biko
Promise: Okay,,, I will get it
Me: Thanks dear
Promise: And what have you been doing that you couldn’t get yourself something to eat?
Me: It’s a long story
Promise: What’s the long story on not having lunch again?
Me: *Laughs* You won’t understand,,, get here first
I continued browsing and downloading till she arrived a couple of minutes later. She gave me a cool hug when i opened the gate for her before i ushered her in to the house.
Promise: The place is looking really good, who did it?
Me: What are you insinuating now?
Promise: Come on,,, you and know that you didn’t do it
Me: And if i say i actually did it?
Promise: Then I’ll say you’re lying
Me: Please give my food, I don’t know what you girls take me for
Promise: So who did it?
Me: Its Mirabel! Can I have my food now?
Promise: **Hands the package to me** By Mirabel, you mean she did it manually or automatically?
Me: How do you mean?
Promise: As in, if she did it with her hands or she brought people to do it?
Me: Okay it was automatically
Promise: So, what’s the long story you talked about?
Me: **Chuckles** I was only exaggerating,,, just busy with the internet
Promise: I see,,, and who were you chatting with that kept you busy?
Me: Not chatting,,,, just surfing the internet and downloading from the clouds
Promise: Okay oh,,, too much Mb, so you are on subscription?
Promise: How many Mb
Me: Promzy I want to eat oh please,,, care to join me?
Promise: Tell me jhoor
Me: It’s 10Gb data plan
Promise: For how many months?
Me: For 30 days
Promise: Is it not too much? what would u be doing with it?
Me: It hasn’t been up to a week, I have consumed about 3Gb
Promise: What? with this your phone?
Me: Yea and my laptop
Promise: Okay U connected your phone with your laptop,,, cool
Me: Not really, I’m using a wireless modem that can connect both of them and even more together. Look at it **Showing her the modem**
Promise: Woah,,,, its nice
Me: Yeah,,, I’m coming
I went in to get some drink, the one Mirabel brought yesterday with two glass cups.
Me: Let’s eat
Promise: No thanks, I’m okay
Me: Not even a glass of juice?
Promise: Ok that will do
I offered her the juice while i helped myself,,, We gisted on so many things while eating till she finished her drink and boldly asked for more. While talking, a part of me wanted her to go so I could continue surfing the internet.
Me: Or should I connect you?
Promise: Yes oh,,, I need to do some things,,,, hope you won’t mind if i download?
Me: I hope its not large files?
Me: Okay then
I connected her thinking i would be free to focus on the internet but I was wrong, She kept asking questions upon questions.
Me: Hey dear
Mirabel: Hey,,,, where are you? I’ve been horning out here
Me: Really? sorry dear I didn’t know, I’m coming out now
I rushed to open the gate for her,,, She drove in
Me: I apologize sweetheart, I didn’t know **Hugs her**
Mirabel: Its okay,,, and what have you been doing all day?
Me: Just been surfing the internet
Mirabel: And what did you have for lunch?
Me: Some snacks,,,, Promzy is even around
Mirabel: Inside now?
Mirabel: Why didn’t you tell me?
Me: But I just did
Mirabel: How long has she been here?
Me: I think for over an hour now,,,, what’s this about?
Mirabel: What do you mean by what’s this about? She’s my friend too and I miss her soooo much **Running inside** Promzy!!
I was like “pheeeeww” I let out a sigh of relieve.
Do not joke with the power of PRAYER for it is the KEY to your PROBLEM,,,, There is NOTHING TOO BIG to ask GOD for and in the same way NOTHING TOO SMALL. The Bible says,,, ASK AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU. You don’t just seat down and get everything You need without ASKING. Even when You need something from someone, Pray to God first for FAVOUR. For when God Favours You, Men will Favour You BIG TIME.
HE/SHE WHO HAS EAR, LET HIM/HER HEAR!!
It’s a good thing that Mirabel wasn’t suspicious of anything,,, I went inside to join them.
Promise: It was my Aunt from Zaria that was able to convince my Mum to let come
Mirabel: So you and your Mum are very close?
Promise: Very close,,, we don’t hide anything from each other
Mirabel: Same with me and my Mum, even with her busy schedule, she always try to make up for it
Seeing them talking, I went to help myself with a chill hollandia yoghurt from the fridge and went back to the parlor to continue surfing the internet untill they’ll call my attention. I don’t know why the three of us can’t gist together,,, these girls sef **Sips yoghurt**
**Phone Rings: Unknown Caller**
I excused myself from the parlor before answering the call.
Me: (Waited for some seconds) Hello
Caller: Its me Lola, move away from Mirabel now
**I quickly set the call on record**
Me: Why? and why did you hid your number and change your voice ??
Lola: Don’t be afraid handsome, just want to let you know that I don’t need your little d!ck,,, gosh! I thought you were so hude
Me: What are you talking about?
Lola: Well I kinda touch and felt it last night,,, and i was so disappointed at myself to stoop so low for that little thing, jeez!
Me: So what does that mean?
Lola: My sexual urge for you ended last night, so we can be very cool friends from now on
Me: You’re serious?
Lola: Yeah I promise
Me: Woah,,, thanks so much, I really appreciate this
Lola: Nah,,, you don’t need to appreciate me, you should appreciate your little thing
Me: Okay oh
Lola: Alright bye, we’ll talk later
Woah,,,, It happened! Glory be to God!!
Did I mentioned that I prayed over the issue of Lola? I have actually been praying over it. It became my top prayer point since the day I dreamt that I married her. I prayed over it seriously in the Night Vigil we did recently back home. God works in mysterious ways, I mean, look at how He did it,,, Of course my thing ain’t little at all, I think God confused her so she’ll leave me alone and I bless God for that. I started singing praises to God when going back to the parlor.
Mirabel: What happened?
Me: Like how do you mean?
Mirabel: Why the sudden happy face and singing?
Me: I’m happy
Mirabel/Promise: **both chrosed** Why…?
Me: Nothing,,, I’m just happy. I mean, who wouldn’t be happy to have such a great and extremely beautiful girlfriend as you my dear
Mirabel: You never talk true
Me: I’m being serious
Mirabel: You left here to receive a phone call and returned happy,,, and you’re telling me something else
Me: Okay relax dear,,, uhmmm its about a friend of mine that’s been delivered from something evil
Mirabel: What evil?
Me: Trust me on this babe, You don’t wanna know
Me: Just trust me,,, so what are you girls talking about?
**They now face each other**
Mirabel: Yes, so Promzy what happened next?
Promise: He had to free me of course,,, I made him realized that he’s not my type and if
he continue to send me such messages and those disgusting pictures of his again, I will show it to my Father, that he should know what that means. (Her Dad was an Air force actually)
I can see they’re talking about guys, I just took my laptop and focused on it while sipping my yoghurt as well.
Mirabel: Hey Nancy how you doing?
Mirabel: How’s Mummy?
Mirabel: Okay… are you at home or the shop?
Mirabel: Alright tell her I say Hi
Mirabel: Yeah I’m at His place right now
Mirabel: Okay thank you
**She dropped her phone down**
Mirabel: Its Nancy
Me: Ok how’s she?
Mirabel: She said they’re fine
Promise: Who’s Nancy?
Mirabel: His younger Sister
Then they continued with their discussion. That useless Sister of mine, she doesn’t call me oh,,,, only my girlfriend.
Nancy: Hi Senior Bro
Me: How you doing?
Nancy: Fine oh…. Aunty just delivered a baby girl
Me: Really? Woah,,, that’s good news, hope they’re all doing fine?
Nancy: Yes they are and Mummy is now preparing to go there tomorrow, and you know Daddy will be travelling next week… so i will need to stay with someone till Mummy arrives
Me: What are you saying? Why won’t you follow Mummy?
Nancy: But Bro its not necessary, I don’t have anything to do there
Me: You can be of little help there,,, besides, don’t you want to see the baby? or is it not your wish for her to deliver a baby girl?
Nancy: Yes, but let the baby grow up a little first
Me: If you don’t want to go there, then where do you want to stay?
Nancy: Errmmm…. I’m thinking of
Me: **Cuts in** Don’t even think about it, You’re not coming here!
Nancy: No its not your place, its Mirabel’s
Nancy: Yes I spoke to her about it, and she said its okay for her but I should ask you first
Me: You wanted to skip me in the first place by going to her first right?
Nancy: No its not like that Bro, its just that…
Me: **Cuts in ** You are not coming here,,, you should go with Mummy!
**I hanged up**
Mirabel: That must be Nancy, why were you so hard on her?
Me: Don’t just mind her
Mirabel: Why don’t you want her to come?
Me: Mirabel I think you should stay out of this
I got up with my yogurt, laptop with modem and walked in to my room. Mirabel came in about three minutes later.
Mirabel: What’s wrong with you?
Me: I’m fine
Mirabel: No you’re not,,, I mean look at you
Me: Listen, I know my sister very well, she’s an opportunist. She’s not just trying to come here because she needs a place to stay, She just want to use that as an opportunity to come to you
Mirabel: Is there anything wrong if she want to stay with me? Or Am I a bad influence
Me: Come on babe, don’t say that
Mirabel: Then what is the problem?
Me: Like I said, she’s an opportunist,,, she wants to use this medium to see other part of the world
Mirabel: How do you mean?
Me: She wants to engage herself on what she sees in the movies,,, having the opportunity to be partying, clubbing, dating, and all that
Mirabel: Are you sure of what you’re saying?
Mirabel: You were also like that before untill you learn to be of good behaviour the hard way,,, wait, just out of curiousity…. was your Parents like this in their youthful age?
Me: Stop it,,, please don’t go there
Mirabel: I’m sorry dear
Me: Its okay…
Mirabel: But I won’t let her engage in such activities with me
Me: Can you refuse her pleas?
Mirabel: Yeah if it comes to that
Me: Mirabel, You and I know that you can’t refuse her,,, I know You, You don’t want her to see you as a terrible person, You wouldn’t want to hurt her feelings by refusing her. To tell You the truth sweetheart, You don’t have the boldness to handle Nancy, You really can’t handle her. And of course You girls would put me in the dark when You give in to her.
Mirabel: So are we just going to refuse her like this?
Me: See what I’m talking about? It hasn’t even gotten to a minute that I said it and You’re already manifesting Your Nature.
Mirabel: It will make her very sad
Me: There You go again,,,, She will get over it, I know my Sister very well and She knows me too, I don’t tolerate her stupidity or any nonsense emanating from her
Me: Hello Ma
Momma: Ab’ele? (How are you)
Me: O lafia Ma (Fine Ma)
Momma: Joy just gave birth some minutes ago
Me: Ok yeah, Nancy told me just now
Momma: Okay good,,, and I shall be travelling there tomorrow
Momma: Nancy wants to stay with you people there at school ,,, specifically with Mirabel as Your Daddy will also be travelling too
Me: But why can’t She go with You?
Momma: She said she wants to be learning some things about the school as she’ll be coming there later this year or next year by God’s Grace. Please let her go and learn whatever She wants,,, me I’m tired, just let her
Me: Okay Ma
Momma: I will call You before I leave tomorrow
Me: Okay Ma
Me: Ok Mirabel here is the deal
Me: She will stay here in this house
Me: So I’d watch her movement while under my control
Mirabel: Its okay… you’r the boss!
I felt so good hearing that from her… That’s why we need WISDOM and BOLDNESS to handle situations and then YOU CAN BE RESPECTED FOR IT and you can also BE THE BOSS!
EPISODE 20 & 21
A week later after resuming school, Nancy came in and We made her stay in my place as planned without her knowledge at first untill we explained to her how I got to be living in that huge house. She had no choice but to concur to the arrangement we made. She thought I was staying in a single room with room mates thats why she wanted to stay with Mirabel. We told her that, both Mirabel and I don’t have room mates. She asked why but no explanation was provided for her. She concluded on already having a place to stay when She starts schooling with us. And as for me,,, I now have a cook for two to three months. Even though Dad will return home before then, still he won’t be stable so there’s no need for Nancy to be going and coming. She will only go home when Momma arrives.
I later spoke with my Sister; Joy on phone to talk to her and also congratulate her for giving birth safely,,, Her Husband wasn’t even around, He flew to Cape Town, South Africa. He was a Pilot.
On a Tuesday afternoon after school, Mirabel and Promise went to their places while I left for mine,,, I got a call from Dorothy before I entered the house and the following conversation ensued…
Dorothy: I want to come stay with You even for a week
Dorothy: Because I miss You and I’d also like to know the School that I’d be going as from next year
Me: You applied for the University?
Dorothy: Yes, I didn’t tell You?
Me: I don’t think so
Dorothy: Its okay… hope I can come?
Me: No You can’t come,,, If You really want to know about the school, You should look for a girl to stay with or better still, wait for the post UTME Exams
Dorothy: Are You refusing me again?
Me: Look D’thy, I’m in a relationship, a serious one and I won’t jeopardize that ok?
Dorothy: Oh! I see… I should have known, now I get it,,, so this is what all this is all about? abandoning me for some cheap s–t?
Me: D’thy You have to calm down
Dorothy: Calm down? I should calm down?? After everything You did to me and all what I went through for You, this is what I get?
Me: We’ve talked about this before, I asked for Your forgiveness and You forgave me so why are You like this?
Dorothy: I might have tried to forgive You, but never to forget! and besides, I told You I only forgave You partially not fully
Me: Come on,,, You were pulling my legs by then
Dorothy: No I wasn’t! I was serious about it and I made it pretty clear to You
Me: Then what should I do to get Your full forgiveness?
Dorothy: You know what to do
Me: I don’t know
Dorothy: Yes You do
Me: No I don’t
Dorothy: Text me Your address so we can talk face to face
Me: I can’t do that, You can’t come over here D’thy, We can talk on phone
Dorothy: Okay,,, I want You to get rid of that s–t You call Your girlfriend so We can be together
Me: No way, that’s never gonna happen, I mean… it won’t work
Dorothy: It will happen, No girl can have You if I don’t. Even if You turn gay, no guy will have You still. You are for me
Me: I have always known that You’re not smart, but I didn’t realized that You’re this stup!d,,, can You listen to Youself?
Dorothy: I have told You, its either me or no other
I just laughed to Her stupidity and went inside inside the house. Nancy served me a good meal which I ate and drank a cool yoghurt, then I went to sleep while Nancy has been using my wireless modem all day. I woke up later in the evening around 4 or 5pm (Nigerian time) I checked my phone and saw some missed calls from Momma and also from Mirabel whom I saved as ‘Love Mi’ of which the Yoruba can translate to My Love but I actually abbreviated her name to ‘Mi’ – Love Mirabel so it became of two sides either ‘Love Mirabel’ or ‘My Love’ and I also missed a call from Dorothy too.
First of all, I dialled Momma’s number,,, we just exchanged pleasanries, asked about our wellbeing and all of that bla bla bla. Before I dialled Mirabel, She picked the call in no time.
Me: Hei Sweetheart
Mirabel: Hi, where have You been that I’ve been calling You?
Me: I was sleeping, I had to rest from the hot lectures we had today
Mirabel: I thought as much because I know You can’t just refuse to pick my call, but even at that, you should’ve known that I was the one calling and You should’ve woken up to pick
Mirabel: From Your dream na
Me: Very funny
Mirabel: Yeah,,, It was meant to be joke and t…
What I heard was “Your call credit has been exausted and Your call terminated” and You know what that means. I didn’t even get a warning like “You have one minute remaining”.
She called me back in less than 10 seconds and I picked up immediately.
Mirabel: Don’t tell me it was Your call that finished
Me: What else do You expect it to look like? Or I just hanged up on You?
Mirabel: I was only teasing, You don’t have to answer me that way
Me: **Laughing** I was teasing You as well,,, So what’s up?
Mirabel: I’m home watching a cool movie, So I won’t be coming around today
Me: Okay,,, and what movie is that that captivated You like that?
Mirabel: Its a Korean
Me: You watch it too?
Mirabel: Yeah… just started it recently,,, with the influence of Lola and Cynthia
Me: I see,,, If such a movie could hinder You from coming here, then I think its very interesting
Mirabel: It is very interesting
Me: Okay,,, You should bring that particular one You’re watching to me tomorrow
Mirabel: Ok I will
Me: Alright continue Your movie, we’ll talk later in the night before I sleep
Mirabel: Ok dear, love you… Nnmuah
Me: I love You too sweetheart, bye
I refused to call Dorothy, I might even block Her again. I checked my unread messages and I saw two messages from Mirabel which read “Where are you and why are you not picking up my calls?” and the second one “Are You there??” I supposed It was when I was sleeping and missed Her calls. I saw a message from First Bank then I recalled when Momma said She’ll back up some money in my account. I opened it quickly and saw that my account has been credited but it wasn’t from my Mum nor from the Boss because I know their account number. I relaxed to think for a moment…
*Could it be Mirabel?
*And why would She send me money after all what Mum had told Her about not giving Me Her money?
*Or Mirabel did it so I won’t know that its from Her?
*But who else can send Me money?
My thought got to my Engineer Uncle, but He doesn’t send me money just like that, untill I call or something
*Or was it a wrong transfer?
*Should I contact the Bank?
I called Momma but She said She didn’t send the money, I called the Boss,,, thinking He’d asked if I have I gotten the money but He didn’t, which means He wasn’t the one. I called and asked Mirabel but She denied responsibility.
Then who is responsible for crediting my accouunt??
And what should I do??
It could be a wrong transfer.
After much thoughts, I decided to call My Uncle to greet Him and there I can also know if He’s the one that sent the money or not,,, afterall, He told me to call Him whenever I get to School. I dialled His number… and He picked up.
Me: Hello Sir
Uncle: How are You Victor?
Me: I’m fine Sir
Uncle: I spoke with Your Dad, He told me Joy has delivered a baby
Me: Yes Sir, We thank God for the save delivery
Uncle: Yes,,, and I’m made to understand that You’re in School already
Me: Yes, We’ve resumed Sir
Uncle: I told You to call me when You get to school right?
Me: Yes You did, I apologize for not calling
Uncle: Did You get the alert?
Me: Yes I did, thanks a lot Sir,,, I really appreciate Your support and kind gesture
Uncle: Its okay,,, make sure You study hard, We need a better result in the Family or don’t You want to beat my record?
Me: **Laughs** Sir We’re trying
Uncle: Don’t just be trying, ensure that You get to be sure of Yourself
Me: Okay… thank You Sir
Uncle: Alright, I just got home from work,,,, so bye lemme rest a little
Me: Ok bye Sir.
Woah,,, I came to School to study, but I’m balling in School!
I went to the Parlor, Nancy was there watching TV
Me: Now You’re tired of browsing and chatting abi
Nancy: The thing just stopped working
Me: How do You mean?
Nancy: I don’t know oh,,, its connected but not browsing and the network is ok
Me: Chai! You have finished My MB
Me: Quiet jare! Msteeeew chai! exausted 10 Gigabytes of data in less than three weeks,,, Great!
I left Her in the Parlor, went inside my room, grabbed my notes and went to the house library to read. That’s my secret for answering well in class and also performing well in tests. I study whatever that I was taught in School later in the evening and also raed it again in the early morning of when We have the Lecture again. All what We were taught from Monday to Friday, I studied them at home on Saturdays and sundays. So don’t think that I’m so intelligent or calling me a genius for my intelligence,,, Its because I studied hard.
My Uncle wants His record of having Second Class Upper to be broken, I thought for a little. He was the one with the highest result in the family, My Dad had Second Class Lower which put him in the Second place after My uncle. That day was the day I officially set My goal of beating My Uncle’s record. And You know what that means, First Class things.
I left the library after for almost two hours, I dropped my notes in the room before walking to the Parlor, Nancy was still there watching TV, Although I perceived something coming out from the kitchen’s direction.
Me: What are You preparing?
Nancy: We ate rice in the Afternoon, what’s again?
Me: Are they not the same thing? Can’t You cook something else rather than these starchy foods? If not rice its spaghetti or noodles or yam sometimes
Nancy: But there’s nothing else in the kitchen
Me: What about Semo or pounded yam
Nancy: There are no ingredients for soup in the kitchen
Me: Can’t You buy them and other things from the market?
Nancy: With which money? and things like what?
Me: Things like Platein, both irish and sweet potatoes, like that
Nancy: Bro just give me money and I will get them tomorrow
Me: No problem, but You will use Your money to buy meat and fish
Me: Are You not the one that eat it more? See how You’re getting fat here
Nancy: I am Your responsibility na, You’re my senior bro and I’m in Your place so You will have to take care of me
Me: Na true, go check wetin dey fire jare… I’m hungry
Nancy: Yes boss
She went to the kitchen while I took the remote to the channel to either music or sport channel. She came back a couple of minutes later with my food, I ate and rested before calling Mirabel and then retired to bed after praying for the night and the new day I’ll be entering.
The next day in School, I met and chat with lola, Mirabel and promise with some quarter-friends that we only greet each other or talk about lectures only. Lola and Cynthia came to our Department when we were free,,, We all had lunch together, that is Lola, Cynthia, Mirabel, Promise and I.
Our first semester result came out and I did great except for Maths that I had “C”, I really needed to work very hard on Maths. Mirabel and Promise did very well too,,, And surprisingly, Lola and Cynthia’s result wasn’t bad at all. I guess they have their way because,,, those girls ain’t really serious with their studies.
As time goes by, Lola and I became close friends. I snatched her from Mirabel same way She snatched Promise from Me. I got to learn the other side of Lola, She’s fun to be with, full of exciting stories and experience.
I couldn’t take it anymore from Dorothy, so I brought the situation to Lola not telling Mirabel about it. She told me to play along with Dorothy, that instead of giving her my house address, I should give her another address where she (Dorothy) would meet me and She’ll take care of the rest. I did what Lola told me to do,,, I pretended to give in to Dorothy’s pleas and made her to meet me in a certain place. She came at the appointed time and I drove her with the car Lola gave me to use to the address she provided. I didn’t know what she wanted to do, and my mind didn’t even think of Lola killing Dorothy at all.
We arrived the location, an uncompleted building and I horned as Lola directed me to do.
Dorothy: Victor don’t tell me You live here
Me: No I don’t
Dorothy: Then what are we doing here?
Me: Just came to check on someone
Dorothy: Victor I’m not comfortable with this place, let’s go
Lola: Nobody is going nowhere,,, yet
Lola showed up with Cynthia and other two girls looking weird and dangerous, I was scared myself.
Dorothy: Victor what’s going on here? Is this a set up?? You want to kill me,,, Victor You want to kill me???
Cynthia: Shut up b!tch!
Dorothy: Victor please don’t do this to me I beg You **Almost crying**
I didn’t know what to say or do, I couldn’t even understand what was going on
Lola: So You’re scared huh? **Lighting a cigeratte for herself**
Dorothy: Please don’t harm me…
Lola: Shut up! Now tell me, why are You even begging?
Lola: Why are You begging for Your life? Do You know me from somewhere??
Lola: And why are You begging? I’m not even holding any weapon
Dorothy: I’m sor-ry
Lola: Now listen and let this be clear to You, Victor is my boyfriend and I’m not sharing his d!ck with no b!tch,,, You got that?
Dorothy: Yes yes yes (Shivering)
Lola: Stay clear of his d!ck, is that understandable?
Dorothy: Yes I understand
Lola: Good girl,,, just make sure that the next time You and I get to meet again, It shouldn’t be like this okay?
Dorothy: Yes pleaseee…
Lola: Victor darling, take this girl to where You got her from (Walked back to where she came out from with the girls)
Me: Okay…. D’thy lets go
I felt pity on her, She was so scared and terrified. She stood up walked out in a hurry, I ran after her.
Me: D’thy wait
**She kept on moving**
Me: D’thy wait lemme drop You
Dorothy: So this is how wicked and heartless You are? How dare You put me in this kind of situation?! How dare You do this to me?
Me: I never wanted this to h…
Dorothy: **Cuts in** You’re very wicked! I was too blind to realize it all this while,,, I was so stupid and foolish geez!!
Me: Please hear me out
Dorothy: What for?
Me: Please just hear me out,,, it wasn’t my…
Dorothy: **Cuts in** Cut the crap You b—–d! I will never forgive You for this, Never! **Walks away hastily**
Me: D’thy! Dorothy!!
She left without looking back. I felt so horrible.
I kept dialling her number from that day but she kept rejecting my call till her line stopped going through, I thought she had blocked my line so I tried using another line but it still didn’t go through.
In School on a Wednesday afternoon, Lola announced that her birthday was coming up on Friday but she’s going to celebrate it on Sunday evening. One talk led to another and they came up with an idea to have a dinner in respect of Lola’s upcoming birthday at Mirabel’s lodge. That would be the first time Nancy will be going there. I begged Lola specifically not to involve Nancy on any act, because Nancy claimed to like Lola on their first meeting and always want her around. She promised to be cool and friendly with Nancy and nothing else. Promise said she can’t come and didn’t give any suitable reason for not coming. Mirabel tried to talk her in but she still declined.
When I got home, I told Nancy about the upcoming birthday and she appeared to be very happy, I causioned her to behave herself for I won’t tolerate any misbehaviour from her.
Sometimes I thought about going easy and cool with Nancy, because she might rebel against me later in the future when she realizes some things. And I also thought about something, if Nancy should go out and start doing bad things now,,, what can I even do to her?
EPISODE 22 & 23
I refused to eat that afternoon pending the dinner later. I set myself ready to eat as much as I could. But I still did my two hours study, there is no barrier for that because I have a goal to achieve.
I left the house with Nancy later in the evening and got to the VIP Inn where Mirabel, Lola and Cynthia resides. The Gateman opened the gate for us, they even changed their Gateman. We alighted from the car and went inside the Mirabel’s lodge that’s where they fixed the dinner. Entering the parlor, I met Cynthia and two other girls dancing. I recognized the two girls, they were the ones Lola used to intimidate Dorothy the other day. They paused the music to welcome us, I asked after Lola and Mirabel, Cynthia said they went to the restaurant to get the eatables for the dinner that they’ll be here in few minutes time. She offered us Champagne, I declined for myself and Nancy as well and requested for juice instead.
Nancy: But Bro, I have never seen champagne before except in the movies,,, let me taste it small please…
Me: Nancy it’s not as good as You see in the movies
Nancy: Have You tasted it before?
Me: Yeah and I regretted it
Nancy: But how is it like?
Me: Its alcoholic
Nancy: I hate alcoholics
Me: Me too, that’s why I refused it
Mirabel and Lola arrived few minutes later and the bodyguards dropped the bags they were carrying on the dinning table. Lola greeted me with a hug and Mirabel with a kiss. Lola directed the girls and the lady guard Jummy to arrange what they brought in for dinner and Nancy also helped out on her own accord.
Two huge guys came in some minutes later, Lola introduced the dark one to me as Dax her boyfriend and the other fair one as Vincent, Dax’s friend. Cynthia said her boyfriend couldn’t make it today but promised to come on the main birthday party. After the introduction, we settled down to eat,,, there was so much to eat and drink. I watched Nancy very closely so that an unplanned event will not take place. I ate as much as I could especially the chicken. We first ate fried rice and chicken with wine or juice in the first hour, rested for 30 minutes then ate meat pie with egg and well-prepared roasted fish with any drink of choice. Some rested, others danced for another 30 minutes then they brought in suya that expensive and well-prepared one, that was the day I ate suya like no other. After that, they shared cake and enough ice-cream. Then they increased the sound of the music and started dancing and drinking whatever You like. I also danced very well that night. I saw the fair guy Vincent getting closer to Nancy when dancing but she avoided him which got my mind settled. My eating didn’t end there,,, I still ate suya and the roasted fish later on and ended it with a cool hollandia yoghurt.
Around 11.pm or so, I told Mirabel that We’d be going home, She told me that we should all spend the night there but I refused her till she had no choice. I had to go home because of my Sister, can’t leave her for that huge guy. They even tried to convince us to stay but I gave them a ‘NO’ that signifies no hope at all. Its a good thing Nancy didn’t even want to stay.
We arrived home safely, I had to set an alarm before I slept that night in order to avoid waking up late for lectures.
The following day, I gave Nancy some money to go to the market and get what we needed in the kitchen while I went to School.
Mirabel followed me to my place from lectures with the korean movie I told her to bring for me. Got home, Nancy served us lunch,,, Beans and plantein.
Nancy: Woah this korean movie
Mirabel: You’ve watched it?
Nancy: Yeah but I didn’t started from the beginning and I haven’t watched it to the end yet,,, so interesting
Me: Alright go and play it
We started watching the movie, I read the summary on the disc’s cover,,, Oh! its titled “Boys Before Flowers”. We watched and discussed on the movie till nightfall with generator because the power was seized. I didn’t even read my book that evening but I promised myself to read very early the following morning. Mirabel didn’t go that night, she came prepared to spend the night. We went to bed around 10.pm because of School the following day, but we left Nancy with the movie.
I went to have shower first to avoid being called a dirty boy…
**While in the shower**
Mirabel: May I join You honey?
Mirabel: **Laughs** I’m serious this time
Me: Leave me alone
Mirabel: Okay oh…
(She thinks she can fool me again, lai lai)
Before I knew what was happening, She slowly came into the bathroom and startled me when she slowly caressed and kissed my back.
Me: I thought you were trying to pull my legs again
Mirabel: Nah… I don’t joke with my words all the time dear
Me: I see…
We bath ourselves, but nothing happened oh… I wasn’t in the mood anyway **Winks**
**After the shower and dressed for bed**
Mirabel: So what was it that you’ve been wanting to tell me about?
Mirabel: Yes,,, about my friends or so
Me: Oh! yea uhmmm… just wanted to know why I don’t know their boyfriends or they don’t stick to one guy? but I’ve known Lola’s own now**I lied,,, ‘coz I couldn’t tell her what Lola was trying to do again,,, since we’re cool now**
Mirabel: Well, They have their boyfriends,,, not for love though. They’re just having fun and playing around
Me: Okay… I get it now
Mirabel: Goodnight dear, really need to sleep
Me: Ok babe, goodnight
**Few minutes later**
Mirabel: Baby,,, are u awake?
Me: Yea, anything?
Mirabel: Yea… just need to tell you this
Me: What is it?
Mirabel: My Mum is planning to pay you an unanounced visit
Me: Are you serious? the first lady wants to visit me?
Mirabel: Yea, I’m not supposed to tell you because she told me not to
Me: What’s she paying me a visit for?
Mirabel: You’re dating her daughter hello…? She wants to know and confirm everything I told her about you
Me: And what have you told her?
Mirabel: Everything I know about you,,, your good side though
Me: I see… so when is the visit taking place?
Mirabel: I dunno
Me: Baby please tell me, I need to be well prepared
Mirabel: She refused to tell me, she knows i’ll snitch
Me: So I should be expecting her any time?
Mirabel: Yea… don’t worry, I’ll help you out
Chai! eleyi gidi gan oh… I said this one this thick
Sunday came up so fast with lots of expectations for Lola’s birthday party. I wore a cool fitted suit, my best suit actually with a hat. While Nancy wore a dress Mirabel provided for her.
We arrived the place before 4.pm and the place was wow! full of exotic cars, that was my first time of seeing a Lamborghini car and others. Music was booming the environment, I saw so many good looking and sophisticated persons in attendance. That was when I had a thought of pride that I’m rolling with bigger girls. Well, I didn’t feel intimidated at all because, I got a nice ride and well dressed as well.
I met Mirabel’s guards standing at the frontage of her lodge, I asked them if Mirabel was inside, they replied positive. Some guys and girls were seated in the parlor but Mirabel wasn’t. I greeted them before asking after her and they said she went to the room to get dressed. I went straight to her room and knocked…
Mirabel: Who is it?
Me: Your boyfriend
Mirabel: Come in come in come in
I slowly opened the door and walked in, she was backing me
Mirabel: I’ve been waiting for you, Now tell me, how do i look? **Turning around to face me**
Me: Woah… you’re a true definition of beauty, a virtue of grace, I’m incredibly graced by your grace, I’m highly favoured beyond imaginations, you have no idea to how happy i am to have you, you’re like a figment of my thoughts but thank God you’re real, thank God for creating you, I’m extremely blessed. Oh my! what am i saying? Come give hug please baby…
We hugged each other for so many minutes, i also caressed her hair emotionally that I didn’t know when a tear dropped off my left eye.
Me: I will always love you Mirabel, I will continue to love you no matter what… The love I have for you is irreplaceable.
Mirabel: I love you so much and you know it, I believe whatever you tell me, I trust the love we have for each other,,, I’m made to understand that, sometimes in life, the best doesn’t come first but mostly comes last. Yes I was born with everything i need, but you stand as the best thing that has ever happen to me. With you in my life, I have everything I want and my love for you is unconditional.
**We were still hugging each other before someone opened the door**
Cynthia: Oops! sorry for intruding guys, didn’t know uhmmm… excuse me, Mirabel everyone is waiting for you outside, they’re about to start
Mirabel: Ok I’m coming out, just give me a minute. Is Lola out yet?
Cynthia: No, she’s waiting for you
Mirabel: Ok, just a minute please
Cynthia: Alright hurry up. Hi Victor
Me: Hi **I just waved at her with a coy smile then she left**
Mirabel: Everyone will know today that you’re my boyfriend
Me: I don’t understand
Mirabel: As you know, this is a high class party and everyone you see out there are sons and daughters of dignitaries like Senators, Ministers, Governors, big business men children and all that. So,,, people like us are not expected to come here with any random person, we can only come with our date, friends or spouse
Mirabel: You and I will be together throughout the party, that is after I escort Lola to the Celebrant’s seat then We’ll seat together by her right side. And I will introduce you to anyone I meet as my boyfriend
Me: Its cool, no problem
Me: Yea, sure, even if the your Father gets to know I won’t be bothered
Me: Just kidding
Mirabel: He’s not gonna do anything nasty I’m sure of that
Me: Well, he is your Father, you should trust him,,, He should only know about us when the time is right
Mirabel: Of course, that’s what I’m waiting for. Put this in your mind that I’m taking you to my father in Aso rock two weeks after our final exams
Me: Aso rock?
Mirabel: Yea, why?
Me: But his tenure will expire months before we graduate
Mirabel: So? what happens to second term?
Me: Oh… I forgot
Mirabel: By the way, where is Nancy?
Me: Oh my God!
Mirabel: What is it?
Me: No, nothing, She’s outside… let’s go join them, they’re waiting for you
Mirabel: Yea, let’s go. What about Promise?
Me: I dunno, we haven’t talked today. She didn’t call me
Mirabel: The securities will deny her access if she should come because we only invited her with our mouth as our close friend and not with invitation card and she doesn’t even have a car. Let’s call her quick,,,, where is that my phone
Me: Lemme call her **I brought my phone out from my pocket** my phone has been switched off all this while and i didn’t know **I quickly switched it on**
Mirabel: Maybe she’s been trying to call you, who knows? Woah… eleven missed calls from her
**She dialed Promise’s number and she picked up at once, then Mirabel put on loud speaker**
Mirabel: Hello Promise
Promise: Hi I’ve been calling you but you didn’t pick up and Victor’s line is unreachable
Mirabel: I apologize, I’ve been busy. They refused to allow you come in?
Promise: Yeah at first, but I’m in now,,, thanks to Cynthia. Where are you guys by way?
Mirabel: In my room but we’re coming out now
Promise: Please hurry up, I’m feeling awkward and nervous out here
Mirabel: Just meet us in my lodge
Promise: Ok, on my way
Mirabel: Lets go lets go
Me: After you my darling
We stepped out together, the guys and ladies we met in the parlor all stood up when we showed up in the parlor. She greeted them in a hurry while stepping out and they followed us or they followed her rather,,,, who know me? Lol.
The guards opened the entrance door and there stood Promise, glowing like a star, where did she hid her beauty all this while that i did not see? I was stunned by her beauty but refused to get carried away.
Mirabel: You’re looking good Promise
Promise: Thanks, and you’re looking gorgeous
Mirabel: Thanks,,, come on, let’s go and escort Lola out to her seat, we’re already late. Guys you may go have your seat (Referring to the ones with us) Victor please wait for me here, Promise lets go
They left for Lola/Cynthia’s lodge to escort the celebrant out while I stood in front of her lodge as she told me to wait for her. I was looking around for my sister Nancy, I didn’t know where she was.
Mirabel came out alone some few minutes later and went to grab a mic, she signaled them to pause the music. After which, she welcomed everyone in attendance and also said other things. Gosh! her voice sounded so good on the mic, God help me ‘coz I so much love this girl.
She then announced the arrival of the celebrant, every one stood up clapping their hands while Lola and her escorts came out, my mind became cool when I saw Nancy with them. Mirabel however, handed over the mic to the MC after making a comment that…
“Lemme quickly go get my boyfriend before these beautiful ladies in the house do something nasty”
The guests cheered and applauded to that,,, while she left the stage and walk towards me smiling with confidence.
All eyes on me! I started feeling so nervous that I felt like I was gonna collapse even though I was standing upright
EPISODE 24 & 25
She came and stood in front of me smiling,,,she looks so adorable and extremely beautiful. I looked at her with love written all over my face… I took charge of the situation by offering her my hand, she accepted then we walked like newly weds to our seat at Lola’s right side. The MC continued with the menu after the cheering from the guests.
The MC called on the celebrant to get her man by her side. Another romantic drama took place when Lola brought her guy Dax to her side.
The party continued from one interesting item to the other… from cutting the cake to dancing, artistes performances and other entertaining performances. Lola’s boyfriend, Dax also performed a special song for Lola,,,, that was when I know that he was a Musician.
The time for general dance,,, everyone started taking their lady to the dance floor, I also did the same. I noticed how Nancy looked at me when that Vincent, Dax’s friend offered her his hand as a request for her to dance with him. I just nod a ‘go ahead’ for her so she’ll not fall his hand. I wasn’t focused on my dancing because I was watching them for any wrong dance moves but he danced like a gentleman,,, although I was still suspecting him (Vincent).
The refreshments were extremely refreshing, I didn’t ate much though,,, I reserved myself for later when I can eat comfortably, probably with familiar eyes and not otherwise.
Later in the evening around 7.pm or thereabout, the MC announced the main event of the menu which is the “Pool Party”. Everyone cheered and applauded to the anouncement. Then they brought in costumes for the Pool party for both male and females. Bikinis for females and shorts for males. The MC further said that…
MC: Its time to see dah sis packs in dah house and some banging bodies baby! leeets do this!! **Drops mic**
(Instantly, the lights turned red and blue)
Personally, I wasn’t OK on that one, I felt somehow uncomfortable.
Mirabel: Hey handsome
Me: Baby is this necessary?
Mirabel: Well, this is the best part Lola loves on every birthday party she attends ,,, so she also want to do it on her own birthday party, so here we are
Me: I don’t think I can participate on this one
Mirabel: What? honey please you have to
Me: I can’t,,, I’m not feeling this
Mirabel: Honey let’s do this for Lola pleaaase?
Mirabel: Honey pleaseee… just for today, for Lola please honey
Me: OK alright
Mirabel: Thanks hun,,, don’t be shy of your invisible packs
Mirabel: Lemme get a short for you, gimme a minute
Dax: Hey guys… Mirabel and ermmm sorry?
Dax: Yea my bad, how is it going bro?
Me: Just good **handshakes**
Vincent: Hey man
Me: Bro whats up **handskakes**
Vincent: Good,,,, its a nice party
Mirabel: I’m coming guys **runs away**
Me and both guys who were already on shorts showing their six packs chatted a little about some things before Mirabel showed up with a short for me. I excused myself and went in to put it on before joining them,,, I had my siglet on though, I don’t have packs and I don’t even like appearing bare-bodied in public.
We all surrounded the pool in groups, some in twos and others inside the pool already having fun with non-stop party music and drinks. There were balls, water-guns and so many things that made the pool party fun for them.
I was with Dax and Vincent chatting and getting to know each other, I was very comfortable with them,,, that was how we became friends.
Mirabel: Excuse me guys, can I borrow my boyfriend?
Dax: Sure of course, I should be with my baby too… Vince I can’t help you tonight again bro, this is what I’ve been telling you about,,, get yourself a girlfriend
Vincent: Guy leave that thing, I don’t need a w—e or should I kill myself for not finding the type of girl I need?
Dax: You will start doing ultimate search after the loneliness you will feel today, everyone will be in twos soon and there isn’t any single girl here
Vincent: You guys should just go and leave me alone, loneliness won’t kill me
Mirabel: (Laughs) Of course we’ll go,,,, honey let’s go (Drawing my hand along with her)
Me: Guys i’m coming…
Vincent: Ok bro
I smell conspiration among those guys, Infact I was sure that they’re trying to get my sister for Vincent and trying to make me know that he is a good and responsible guy but I refused to concur.
Mirabel took me to the garden where we once met, then we started strolling around slowly.
Mirabel: You remember this place when we started our relationship? I come here whenever I feel lonely to relax myself and also smiled sometimes with tears when I recalled that day we met here. I have loved this place since then because of the good memory.
Me: I remembered everything, even from the first time I saw you, I can still remember vividly like it was all yesterday. How it all started from hate to love
Mirabel: Yea, you were so annoying by then…
Me: Do you know I hated you at first sight?
Mirabel: What? but why?
Me: Because of how you showed up that day, how you spoke with your guards that are older than you and how you spoke with the Lecturer made me thought you were a spoilt arrogant brat
Mirabel: Hhmmmm… I only disliked you because I thought you were a proud guy that shows off his intelligence to make everyone think you’re the best or something,,, and I hate pride.
Me: So we totally misjudged each other
Mirabel: Yea absolutely,,, then I fell for you before I knew it. You hurt me alot when you played hard to get…
Me: I played hard to get?
Mirabel: Have you forgotten?
Me: Well, it wasn’t like that… I saw you as a lover girl that needed real love not with someone like me who wasn’t sure of himself. Hey what are we even talking about? we’re spoiling the mood already, lets forget about all that and focused on the romantic night
We stopped for a while then faced each other, she placed her hands on my shoulder and we looked straight to each other’s eyes.
Mirabel: So… how romantic could this be?
I smiled sheepishly then drew her closer and initiated a kissing session that led to a hot romance for many minutes. The romance came to an abrupt end as I pulled off when the thought of my sister popped up.
Me: Lets go inside (Smiling)
Mirabel: Victor please no
Victor: Why? you don’t want to go inside?
Mirabel: You know what i meant
Me: I don’t think i do
Mirabel: You know we shouldn’t go beyond kisses and romance
Me: Yea I know. Oh… wait, you thought I was going to…..? Nah… far from it, my mind was far from that. I just want us to go inside and probably continue there ‘coz its late already
Mirabel: Is that so? Alright, lets go
I went back to the pool and saw that the party was over and most of them had left, remaining some in twos that were just talking while others were making out. I was looking around every corner my eyesight can reach to catch them red-handed,,, by that I meant my Sister Nancy and that Vincent but I couldn’t find them. I met with the male bodyguard and asked him if he has seen her. He replied saying he hasn’t seen her all night. My heart started beating with rage, I thought of what i’d do the instance I catch them together. I went inside Mirabel’s lodge, there she was sleeping on the chair. I became speechless…. Mirabel woke her up and showed her where she’d sleep. I told Mirabel to join me go to Lola’s lodge to eat that I didn’t eat well earliar, She agreed that she also want to eat too.
We went there, and I saw that the party continued in there, they were dancing nude.
Mirabel and I stood dumb for many seconds to collect what our eyes were seeing,,, they were drunk and still having more, the place was smelling crazy, they’ve been smoking marijuana and other type of weeds, and substances like cocaine and all, they were smoking their lives out. I don’t even know any of them there. Lola, Cynthia, Dax, Vincent and those two friends of Lola’s weren’t there with them. We irritatingly walked passed them to the rooms.
Mirabel: Seems Promise left
Me: I guess so
Mirabel: But she didn’t inform any of us
Me: Was she even at the pool party?
Mirabel: I didn’t see her there
Me: It could be that she left during that time, She’ll never party like that
Mirabel: Decent girl huh?
Me: Very decent
The first room we entered was hell! we saw a real live hardcore pornography going on among about eight of them both girls and guys. They didn’t even care to noticed if anyone opened the door before we closed up to next room looking each other but remained speechless. Cynthia and her boyfriend were already asleep completely naked in her messed up room. At Lola’s room? I got the shock of my life,,, three in one with Dax, Lola with those two friends of hers… they were extremely high on drugs.
Dax: Hey, don’t you guys knock?
Mirabel: The door was left opened dummy
Dax: Oh… but s..
Lola: **Cuts in** You guys care to join the fun? Victor you can take on my girls, I don’t need yo little d!ck ‘coz I won’t even feel it anyway **Laughs out crazily** Mirabel how do you cope with that guy? girls… that dude is so so tiny **three of them laughed crazily, one of the girls had cums on her face and mouth**
Mirabel: You’re sick,,, let’s go Victor **walked out**
Lola got me extremely angry that night, I looked at them in disgust before walking out of the room. I was headed to Mirabel’s lodge before I heard her voice closed-by. I looked around and saw her at a corner talking with someone unfamiliar to me at that moment. I went closer and that it was Vincent.
Me: What’s happening here?
Vincent: Hey bro
Me: Hey,,, why are you sitting out by yourself?
Mirabel: He was actually sleeping when I saw him
Me: Why don’t you go inside?
Vincent: I’m ok here,,, here is more cool, inside there is hell even with all the AC’s… gosh!
Me: So you’ve been all alone all this while?
Vincent: And I’m very cool with it
(Hhmmmm… seems he’s really a good guy)
Mirabel: But Dax is your friend, why aren’t you with him?
Vincent: Sure I’m with him and that’s why I’m still here
Me: Alright get up let’s go to Mirabel’s lodge, its more comfortable there
Vincent: Yea it should, i can see it’s less noisy. Please show me in before I catch cold out here **Standing up**
Mirabel: Sure, lets go
Vincent: After you
(I was like hmmmm…. Lol)
She took him to a room where he’d spend the night.
Mirabel: We need to talk
Me: About what?
Mirabel: About what happened back there, what was she talking about?
Me: Forget about that sweetheart, she’s not ok. Lets just go to bed dear
Mirabel: I need to understand
Me: Sweetheart, there’s nothing to understand OK? trust me my love
Mirabel: I’m being serious Victor, tell me why she said that, she’s high but not out of her sences
Me: You listened to her? didn’t you see how high she was?
Mirabel: You can’t tell me that, Lola will never say such thing just like that. Yes she’s high and that’s exactly when she exposes stuffs
Me: Will you calm down? Now tell me, what’s your point in this?
Mirabel: I dunno, you tell me what she’s talking about
Me: Why don’t you go ask her yourself, go on… she exposes stuffs when she’s high right? go on and ask her as she’s still high… excuse me **I walked into the room**
I got into the room and was about to remove my suit before she stormed in
Mirabel: So this is how you want to treat me?
Me: Mirabel you better stop this, you’re irritating me already
Mirabel: Baby why can’t you talk to me?
Me: Answer this questions, she exposes truth when she’s high right?
Mirabel: Yea and it’s true
Me: Ok tell me what brought this issue?
Mirabel: She said you have a little tiny,,,,, d!ck
Me: Is that true?
Me: Why can’t you answer me? or you’re not sure?? **Smiling**
Me: No but sweetheart…
I went behind her and placed my hands around her waist
Me: I love you sweetheart and you know I won’t do anything to hurt you, not even a bit will I feel comfortable in hurting you. That which doesn’t please you, will never please me. What you hate, that I will also hate for your love is my love.
Mirabel: I’m really sorry baby, I just…
Me: It’s Ok,,, can we go to bed now?
Mirabel: Yea sure
Me: Good **Removed my dress and about to jump on to the bed**
Mirabel: But only after shower
Me: What? No, You just go ahead I’m very very tired as it is right now
Mirabel: I didn’t ask for your opinion neither am I giving you a choice,,, get up and lets shower
Me: Look dear its very late already,,, let today’s shower slide by please
Mirabel: Not a chance, you will save yourself more time if you comply now because you will only sleep after shower,,,, we’ve spent almost five minutes debating on this when you can shower within just three minutes.
I was so weak, I didn’t eat well from the party, I managed to gather some strenth before I could have my shower that night. I first had my shower before she did.
Mirabel: Now how do you feel? (After I had my shower)
Me: Terrible! (Actually, I felt better)
Mirabel: Liar… Baby you should be taking your bath two to three times daily and also wash your teeth as well, you will feel free, more relaxed and feel cool when you shower before retiring to bed
Me: I’ve heard you, can I have my sleep now?
Me: You must be kidding yourself **rested my body on the bed to sleep** Goodnight!
Mirabel: No goodnight kisses?
Me: Mirabel please I’m very weak, I might even collapse if I should sit up
Mirabel: You’re refusing to kiss me?
Me: As I am right now? I will even reject $ex
Mirabel: Woah… this is serious. Sorry baby for bothering you, I didn’t know you’re that tired
Me: Its okay… **feeling somehow unusual** please switch off the AC its like i’m feeling cold
Mirabel: Ok,,, sure you’re Ok?
Me: Yea,,, goodnight
Mirabel: Goodnight, love u…
Too tired to say I love her too, I just slept off. During my sleep, I had weird and uncomfortable dreams, I only have such kind of dreams when I’m sick.
**The following morning**
Mirabel: Victor wake up **tapping me** wake up
I opened my eyes,,, I woke up feeling heavy
Mirabel: You’re burning up! we need to take you to the hospital. Please put on your shirt and trousers lets be going
I managed to stood up
Me: What about lectures? **feeling uneasy**
Mirabel: You need to get checked first, you’re sick and you’re talking about lectures we can easily catch up with
Me: I promised not to miss a single lecture, I have to go to school, I will be fine
Mirabel: At the expense of your health? don’t be sturbborn, You’re going to the hospital
I put on my shirt and trousers, she called on the guards and they took me to the hospital, the next thing was me lying on the hospital bed while the Doctor ran some tests on me.
Mirabel: I called Nancy and told her what happened, she requested to come at once but I told her to wait till later that the guards will fetch her
Me: She’s still at your place?
Mirabel: Yea, I told her to remain there while we’re still here
(Then I remembered Vincent spent the night there and he might still be there)
Me: No, she has to go back to the house… She can’t stay close to Lola
Mirabel: Lola and Cynthia are on their way here, they will go to school from here
Me: They’ll make it to school today after last night?
Mirabel: This is not the first time dear, they will go to school if they want to
Me: Still I think she should go back to the house to,, to,,, to you know, freshen up, change her dress before coming here
Mirabel: **Laughs** So its true?
Mirabel: Don’t worry darling, Vincent left the lodge earliar with Dax
Me: Then what’s the truth about that?
Mirabel: **Smiles** Nancy told me everything dear,,, girls talk
Me: About what?
Mirabel: How you’ve been strict on her concerning boys
Me: She’s exaggerating
Mirabel: Really? is that right??
**Doctor walks in**
Doctor: Hello Victor
Mirabel: Doctor, are the results out?
Mirabel: What’s wrong with him?
Doctor: Malaria and typhoid and also his sugar level is very high
Mirabel: Is he going to be admitted?
Doctor: That won’t be necessary, I’ll just prescribed some drugs for him
Mirabel: Ok, thank you Doctor
Doctor: I advise he should stop taking anything that contains more than 2% of sugar. Mr Victor what do you take much that contains sugar?
Mirabel: Doctor he takes yoghurt excessively
Doctor: I advise him to resist yoghurt for minimum of four months
Me: What?! four months?
Doctor: Wait, is he like addicted to it?
Mirabel: Doctor I really dunno, I only know he drinks it excessively
The Doctor started lecturing me on the implications of taking excessive yoghurt. My mind wasn’t with him, It was the four months exile that bothers me.
EPISODE 26 & 27
Lola and Cynthia arrived when we were about to leave the hospital, they left for school from there while we went to Mirabel’s lodge. I managed to eat some plantains so I could take my drugs. I took my drugs; slept for over three hours then I woke up feeling much better. I even had a video chat with Ike (Mirabel’s cousin). We talked on many things; actually he did most of the talking while I followed up. He was quite a jester, He even said that “If your Parents won’t approve of you both, just elope and come to the states” He said it jokingly though and it made sense but I thought about it again that it’s not right. Marriage without parental blessing is not right. I also thought about my sister Nancy, so I decided to be making her happy and to make her feel comfortable with me as her big bro. I wanted her to look up to me, to always listen to me with clear understanding and trust me completely. So, instead of imposing power on her that she won’t have a boyfriend, I switched to advising her, making her see reasons why I don’t want her to have a boyfriend and I also coached her on relationship issues. I started showing her love and care as well as showering her with gifts. I made sure I get something for her whenever I returned to the house most especially ice cream and other snacks. I knew why I had to change my attitude towards her, because,,,, she might rebel against me in the near future when her eyes open fully,,, and she might also start dating secretly. Since I started doing all what I mentioned, she as well changed. My sister and i became friends. She started opening up to me, she mentioned to me all the useless boys that has wooed her and the pending ones. I was surprised to know that some of my useless friends were among. Being close to my sister is what i should’ve been doing instead of forming senior. All thanks to Mirabel that brought such a wonderful idea,,, or were you thinking it was my idea? Nah…
My sister can talk from morning till night, she always have gist for me, she never run out of gist,,, it’s no surprise she inherited it from our Mother.
I waited for Mirabel’s mother for many days but she didn’t show up. I remained indoors after my daily lectures awaiting her surprised visit. I asked Mirabel why it is taking her mother so long; she said her mother has been busy from one meeting or conference to another.
Ike (Mirabel’s cousin) and I retained good communication with each other, he did most of the calling though. We became friends. He taught me so many things on computer and technology, how to hack on devices, how to spy on someone, he sent me a lecturing video by him on how to design a website and tips on creating traffics and many more.
Momma returned home after two months and two weeks,,, Nancy also had to return home two days after, I went with her to spend the weekend at home.
On Sunday after service, I approached Dorothy’s Mother to know why she didn’t come to Church. She said, Dorothy travelled to one of her Paternal Aunt at Asaba, Delta State. She also said that, they’ll all be relocating to Port-Harcourt in two weeks’ time. I asked for Dorothy’s phone number but she told me that she lost her phone and hasn’t gotten another one yet and that they only get to communicate through her Aunt.
As time passed by without reaching Dorothy, I unintentional forgot about her.
The second semester exams was fast approaching, I didn’t allow anything to hinder my study. Although I still watched movies, chats, play video games and all my normal activities was still in place but with timing as there’s time for everything,,, I set time to do whatever I wanted. All this while, Mirabel’s mother still didn’t show up.
After some uneventful months, I came back for my second year (200L) while Nancy joined me weeks later as she got admitted,,, she studied Mass communication.
One peaceful evening when I was chilling with my girlfriend Mirabel before she suddenly ruined the mood with no-good news.
Me: Yes dear
Mirabel: Remember when we talked about our past relationships?
Me: Yea,,, sure
Mirabel: You remember the one I told you that we didn’t get to break up, that was forced to school abroad and eventually got jailed?
Me: Yea, what about him?
Mirabel: The thing is uhmm… uhmmm…
Me: What is it dear?
Mirabel: He is back. He came in last week and has been troubling me to go see him; I dunno how he got my contact
Me: You can make it clear to him now that you’ve moved on,,, nothing much there
Mirabel: There’s nothing I didn’t tell him, he told me to cut whatever tie I gat with you that he’s back for me
Me: Forget about him, he can’t do nothing
Mirabel: He is a crazy guy, he just came out of jail, and we dunno what he’s capable of
Me: Are you afraid of him?
Mirabel: Of course I am, he is crazy
Me: Have you forgotten who you are?
Mirabel: What should I do?
Me: You get him locked up if he tries anything stupid
Me: What’s his name again?
Me: Don’t take him serious dear,,, he can’t do nothing, I’m here for you
Mirabel: What if he gets to know that you’re my boyfriend and he comes for you?
Me: I can take care of myself dear, besides I’m not worried at all
Mirabel: He is the one calling
Me: Give me the phone
**I answered it**
Marcus: Who dah f–k is this?!
Me: Dah f–k is Mirabel’s boyfriend and who are you?
Marcus: Give the f*cking phone to Mirabel mahn, I ain’t got no business with yo’ a-s
**Chai! This guy messing up with 2Pac’s number 1 fan,,, A self-gangster**
Me: Ok listen up motherfucker! She told me about you and everything you both had before you left her
Marcus: I didn’t leave her!
Me: Well… she moved on, I advise you do the same
Marcus: And I advise you to give her a-s up mahn, I didn’t go through all what I went through just to come back and get nothing for it
Me: What are you talking about?
Marcus: I ain’t explaining sh!t to you, just give the phone to Mirabel and go blank
Me: She’s not gonna speak with you ever again,,, I’m in charge, got that?
Marcus: I ain’t got no beef with you hommy, Mirabel is mine. Let her go like nothing ever happened between you two, only then this town will be cool for you and I…. I love Mirabel like crazy and I ain’t gon’ let you or anyone else hold me back from getting her back, she’s mine!
Me: You’re just ranting dude, it’s long been over between you two ever since you left
Marcus: I didn’t just leave motherfucker!
Me: Yes you did; she lost you and found me
Marcus: F–k you!
Mirabel: What’s all that about?
Me: Just forget about him dear, everything will remain as it is,,, he can’t nothing
Mirabel: I hope so but I don’t like how you talked to him
Me: I’m not a weakling dear; I’ve never been and can’t even pretend to be. I have to be strong for us; I will always fight for us. Nobody will ever come between us except the inevitable. I haven’t told you this before but I want to spend the rest of my existence on this earth with you and not even that ex-con can make me bow down.
Mirabel: Whoa… I dunno what to say
Me: Just don’t worry about anything, we shall overcome anything that tries to come between us, let’s just see them as trials…
Mirabel: Ok my love **Smiles** my life is getting more interesting and I’m getting stronger all because of you,,, I love your courage
Me: I love your submission
Mirabel: Hhmmmm…. we’ll make a wonderful couple
Me: Couple? More like a beautiful home
We laughed out
I got back to the house and couldn’t stop thinking about this Marcus of a guy. I think he’s going to be a problem.
I got into the house as unknown huge guy wearing black suit and blank shade opened the gate for me and saw a big SUV car parked inside. All my guts went off, I started sweating and breathing hard. I instantly locked car so he won’t come and drag me out. The only thing that came into my mind was that, they were robbers.
*What am I going to do? And my Sister is inside the house, what if they do anything to her? I dunno how I’d take it if they should rape or kill her.
The guy came knocking on the car; I didn’t know what to do and the guy kept knocking. Out of fear, I quickly grabbed my phone to call Mirabel for help. I dialed her number and it started ringing before I turned to look at the entrance and saw a woman walking out. She resembles the woman I see on TV somehow; I looked closer to be sure before I saw Nancy flaunting her white teeth. Then I heaved a sigh of relief that we’re save and I thanked God immediately. When the woman removed her shade, I saw that she’s the perfect description of the woman I always see in TV and the portrait in Mirabel’s lodge,,,,, Mirabel’s mother the First Lady is finally here! I thought surprisingly inside my mind.
It was indeed a surprise visit, even though I already knew she’d be coming, I just wasn’t expecting her today. I took out my handkerchief and wiped off sweats on my face and composed myself so I won’t look or act like an idiot. I alighted from the car and walked towards them like a gentleman that I am. I fixed my gaze at the First lady; she was such a beauty even though Mirabel resembles her Father – the president instead. She was light skinned averaged height and weight cladded with a fitted outfit.
First lady: Hello Victor
**She greeted me first… ope o**
Me: Whoa… good afternoon your highness… sorry I mean, yo your Excellency. I’m deeply honoured having you here
**My confidence just quench**
First lady: Thank you
Me: Please…. **Ushering her into the house**
First lady: Okay… but I won’t be staying longer; you know this is not an official visit that’s why I came in disguise and also I’ve been here for almost an hour now
Me: Sorry I kept you waiting ma
First lady: It’s okay; I enjoyed your sister’s company, she’s good in talking; I like her
Me: Thanks ma
We got inside; I saw that Nancy has already offered her the wine I bought for her months ago expecting her coming.
First lady: John…?
The two security guards standing in the parlor walked out. I guess one of them is named John and the First lady called on him to excuse us. She came with three security guards and a car. Like she said earlier that she came in disguise that’s why she didn’t come with her convoy.
Nancy: Hhmmm… I will be in the kitchen (She excused herself)
I was seated looking around like a stranger, didn’t know what to say…
First lady: So… Victor; Mirabel told me many positive things about you and your family of which indicate that you’re from a good home. So your Dad is a Chartered Accountant right?
Me: Yes ma Your Excellency
First lady: **Smiling** Please just see me as Mirabel’s mother for I didn’t come here on official ground as the First lady but as a mother that want the best for her daughter
Me: Ok ma
First lady: Good! Now tell me, what’s your vision in life?
Me: I’ll say visions ma, for I have many visions and wish to accomplish them all
First lady: Okay…
Me: I have a vision of being a big businessman; a manufacturer, importer of raw materials and exporter of finished goods. I see myself establishing a business empire with industries and manufacturing plants planted all over the country and beyond. By improving standards of living in the Country, establishing a special institution in training the orphans and the less privileged. I see myself representing my generation and also to be an influence to many generations to come.
First lady: That’s a big one Victor. What makes you think you can translate these visions into reality?
Me: Ma, ever since I became a believer, so many favours has been coming my way. I believe and have faith in God. I started praying over these visions of mine against my future since I started studying Business Administration. That is to say, I’m investing my prayers on what I want in future.
First lady: I see…Impressive
Me: And again, having Mirabel is another reason why I know that my vision will turn into a reality
First lady: And how is that?
Me: Ok look at it this way Ma, I’m young I know but I’ve learnt and observed many things about relationships and having a good, peaceful and influential home. Mirabel has every capacity of building a home as much as I know. With Mirabel, I know I’ll have a peaceful and influential home for I want her to be my future wife. We have absolute love for each other, she’s extremely humble, caring, and hard-working – she loves learning positive things, she’s kind, she has the spirit of giving. In fact, she’s perfect in all aspect of a woman that God has made to perfect a man…having Mirabel from now already shows how successful my visions will become in reality.
First lady: You sound so sure of yourself. I’m impressed with your courage, your determination and your belief
Me: Thank you Ma
First lady: You see… my daughter has been very happy since you both started getting close to each other and seeing my daughter happy, makes me happier. She told me everything from when you both met to when and how you started dating and all of that. Although I blamed her earlier for trying to woo a guy instead of the other way round. I tried to discourage her and make see reasons on why it’s not proper for a girl to express her feelings to a guy first. But my smart daughter proved my belief wrong when the result of her actions did her good instead. From how you snubbed her at first to how you passed her tests and how you eventually did the wooing. I trust my daughter very much and I support her decisions. So…assuming you were after her money, she would’ve detected it because she’s very smart but I just don’t know if you’re a master in your game and maybe your smartness surpasses hers to get what you want.
Me: **Confused** I don’t understand
First lady: I see…I’ve seen how things like this happen. When a guy claims to love a rich girl, he invests his time and love on her then later disappoints her after getting what he wanted. Like I earlier that Mirabel told me a lot about you and your family, but I want to hear from the horse’s mouth to give me reasons why I should belief that you’re not after my daughter’s money, hope you don’t mind?
Me: Not at all… well, I have a contented family that provide all of my needs, as you know my father is a professional chartered accountant; his income is enough to take care of the family but still my mother own a big shop that brings in more income. So…I and my family are not lacking Ma by God’s grace. And most importantly, I’m not lazy; I’m doing very well in school getting high grades so I can attain the utmost knowledge and qualifications in establishing my future goals. And with all due respect Ma, my father didn’t depend on his wife or any person to get to where he is right now, he only needed supports and that’s what I need too. My Parents taught me never to depend on a woman or allow her to perform my responsibilities when I’m still fit, for it’s not going to help the home. I love your daughter for who she is; her character, her perfection, her upbringing, her nature, and her kind of person. Lemme use this opportunity to thank you ma for raising such a wonderful daughter. Even with your busy schedule and little time you spend with her, you still managed to train her well. Her morals are too excellent for a girl from a wealthy home. She cooks pretty well too, all thanks to you as she’d say.
First lady: **Smiling** I’m short of words,,, So far you’ve proven to be of good behavior and come from a good home. I’ll like to meet with your mother some time so uhmmm… we can have a chat.
Me: That can be arranged ma
First lady: And your father, hope he’s cool?
Me: Cool but very strict only on morals and academic matters
First lady: Okay… uhmm… its ok, I like you (smiling) even though you look shy, you still know what to say that’d make someone follow your lead. With the few minutes I have spent here I’ve learnt some things about you. I see some aspiring greatness in you and I can see that you have the flair of a leader.
Me: Thank you ma
First lady: I have to get going now Victor **Standing up**
Me: Ok ma, I really appreciate you coming here
First lady: Anything for my daughter
Me: Is she aware of your visit?
First lady: Sure and so are you
First lady: **Smiling** No need pretending, I know she told you about my plan of coming here and that stand as one of the reasons why it took me this long to show up.
Me: Honestly I wasn’t expecting you to show up today of all days. It’s indeed a surprise visit
First lady: Yea, even when my daughter tried to compromise my plan – she forgot that I gave birth to her.
We both laughed as I walk her to the door. Something then came into my mind to ask her of but I couldn’t, I became nervous. I don’t know when I’m going to get this type of opportunity again so summoned courage to ask her.
First lady: **Turns back** Yes…?
Me: Ma, I will also use this opportunity with your permission of course; to ask for your blessing to court your daughter
First lady: I thought you will never ask. You have my blessing and my full permission
Me: Whoa… thank you so much ma
First lady: But!
Me: What ma?
First lady: Don’t you ever hurt her
Me: Not a chance, trust me on that ma
First lady: And I’m sure you know your limit right?
First lady: Good… where is my new friend Nancy?
Me: Inside ma, lemme call her… Nancy! Nancy!! **She answered from the background**
(We’re now outside)
First lady: John…
The two security guards at the doorpost opened the car boot and off loaded stuffs from it.
(Nancy now with us)
First lady: Well… I didn’t come empty-handed; here, I brought to you some presidential supplies, you can have them
(Before I could utter a word from my already opened mouth, Nancy took over.
Nancy: Whoa…you’re very kind ma, thank you very much. **Already checking the supplies**
Me: Thanks a lot ma, I really appreciate the gesture
First lady: You’re both welcome… Ok time to go **Walking into the car**
Me: Goodbye ma
Nancy: Bye ma, hope to see you again soonest!
First lady: Not a problem, byee **waving at us**
Me/Nancy: Byeee…. **Waving at her too till they zoomed off sight**
I closed the gate and rushed back to the house to see what she brought. I saw Nancy already biting a strawberry fruit. The supplies contained so many stuffs such as: seven packs of frozen chicken, two crates of eggs, dozens of soft drinks, and a carton-full each for apples, strawberries, grapes and much more including food ingredients. I called Mirabel and told her how it went with her mother and also invited her to come over. She came in about 35 minutes later and we canceled a pack of the frozen chicken that night with no left overs courtesy of me.
Later in the night when we were already sleeping around 11.pm or so, I had a call from an unknown caller. I just managed to pick up and the following conversation ensued.
Caller: Let this sound as a clear warning to you, stay away from Mirabel effective from this hour. And if you chose not to, I promise to make life unbearable for you. This is Marcus and my words don’t come back to me empty without accomplishment…like I said earlier, it’s a clear warning.
All what he said was like a dream to me that night because I was so weak and sleepy that I just fell back to bed.
EPISODE 28 & 29
I woke up the following morning thinking about the call from Marcus last night; I checked my phone to review my call history, then I realized it wasn’t a dream but real. I talked with Mirabel about it, she felt uncomfortable about it. I told her not to fret that he can’t do anything that’d make me bow.
We went to School and came back in the evening because a Lecturer shifted his period to 4.pm and made the day a stressful one. Later in the evening, I had a video chat with Ike (Mirabel’s cousin). The following conversation ensued after exchanging pleasantries.
Ike: So… are you earning on your own as a business student?
Ike: Have you thought about the kind of business you want to engage in from now?
Me: Not yet, I’ll think about it more after school
Ike: Are you kidding? After school? So you’ll keep depending on your parents till you graduate?
Me: Seems so, I mean they’re capable
Ike: I’m not talking parental capability mahn! I stopped receiving a cent from my billionaire parents even before I got into college. I earned my first million dollars at age 19. Wake up mahn! You start your career and future now not after you start growing matured beards or something.
Me: Ok I’ll think about it
Ike: Do you have anything in mind?
Me: Hhmmm… not really
Ike: What about your passion or visions of life?
Me: I have them but they’re not something I can start with here in the University
Ike: Which are?
Me: Building a business empire in summary
Ike: That’d require a lot of capital to begin with as well
Ike: And how do you intend to raise the capital to finance it after you graduate?
Ike: See what I’m saying? You need to be productive and career-focused from now then you begin your establishment after school
Me: Whoa… I come I never thought about this? Thanks a lot mahn; I’ll start thinking about it from today
Ike: Too late already
Ike: To me, you’re already late. Now look at this; you’re already in your second year and you have two years to graduate right?
Ike: Ok now look it, before you think about what to do, before you start doing whatever it is you want to do and before you start earning handsomely? Two years won’t be enough believe me
Me: So what do you think I should do?
Ike: Good! I’ve decided on handing over the ownership of one of my top-earning websites to you to begin with**Smiling**
Me: Whoa… that’s awesome, thanks a lot
Ike: The market price of the site is worth $2.7 million
**Both my eyes and my mouth opened up wide in shock**
Ike: **Continued** you earn a monthly income of about $24,000 even more as much as you manage it well
Me: For real?!
Ike: Yea and I’ll partner with you for the next six months with no benefit so I can be able to put you through on how you can run the site effectively.
Me: Thanks so much bro, I really appreciate this; I really can’t thank you enough
Ike: Come on mahn, I’ve empowered so many youths I don’t even know; besides being my sister’s boyfriend, you’re also my friend Ok? So just chill and start preparing for your future
Me: This is great; I shall forever be grateful for this favor
Ike: It’s okay…you will have to text me your email address so I’ll send everything you’ll need to know about the site and how to run it and I’ll also arrange how you’ll be getting your money.
Me: Ok bro, I’ll do that right away
I texted him my email address without wasting time; then I started thinking about it with excitement and astonishment. If I should save such kind of income in three years, I know what I’ll get.
My future is sure! Vames Empire On The Way!! I screamed out loud. I couldn’t even eat that night. I bought suya and ate it with hollandia yoghurt.
I woke up the following morning and the first thing that came into my mind was my new source of income. I couldn’t even focus on my morning reading because of it and we have test that day.
Later in school, I told Mirabel about Ike’s offer; she was happy for me. She called her cousin that moment to appreciate him. After the test, we had another lecture before rounding up for the day. I was so eager to go home; even when I was in the lecture hall, business ideas kept roaming through my head.
I had to drop by an eatery to buy something to eat because Nancy remained in school; she has lecture. On reaching the house, I had to drop down and open the gate as no one was around. I drove in, alighted from the car to go and close the gate only for me to turn around and saw someone with a big scar on his fore-head.
Intruder: Hi, I’m Marcus **Gbow!!**
He accompanied the introduction with a punch straight to my nose; I shifted backward but another intruder behind me pushed me forward to receive a kick from Marcus, but I pushed his (Marcus) leg away. I quickly turned around with a punch hit to the face of the guy behind me – he shifted backwards as well. Two other guys came along to get me down. On seeing them, I adjusted a little to balance myself while they rushed me with punches from all angles till I fell to the ground.
While on the ground, I tightened my fist then rose up and hit one of them straight to the jaw (Uppercut) he went down; I hit another one on the chest before Marcus gave me a super-kick from behind then the force from kick prompted me to head the guy in front of me on his nose before we both fell down. I quickly got up and ran towards Marcus with rage. We engaged in a fist fight. He was very muscular and strong but I didn’t care about it that moment because I fight with anger and I won’t stop until my opponent goes down or something else happens. The other guys dragged me back from him but I shook them off with all my strength and went back to face their leader. I came extremely hard on him this time with a push that got him down; then I pounced on him punching his face as if I was crazy that I totally forgot about the other guys he came with until a heavy plank wood landed on my head and send me off to the other side of the ground. I held my head in pain for many minutes.
Marcus: I warned you! You got lucky that I even gave you a chance; but still you didn’t adhere to my warnings motherf*cka! This is what you get for being a coward!! What you gon’ do now? Common get up and face me! Why can’t you?! You think you’re a tough guy huh? huh?!! Answer me mother*cker! **Kicking me**
Guys: Yes boss!
Marcus: You know what to do with him **Walking away**
On hearing that, I prayed a fast prayer to God in my mind for mercy and I also declared that I will not die but live and accomplish my life-mission on earth! I started gaining strength while praying before the three guys came closer to me. The first guy that touched me got it back from me as I kicked hard against his penis while I was still on the ground before I quickly stood with my pen and stabbed the second one on his shoulder as he was about to bend down. The third one came hard on me but didn’t get me as I blinded his eyes with a strong slap and punched his stomach continuously till he fell down. Then I ran towards Marcus who was standing before the opened-gate watching the action. On getting closer to him, I suddenly stopped when he brought out a gun and pointed it straight to my skull.
Marcus: Step back!
**I moved a step backward**
Marcus: Now get into the f*cking house! Where you’ll die slow motherf*cker… hahahahaha
**I hesitated thinking of a way of getting his gun**
Marcus: Get in motherf*cker!!
Me: Then what will you do? Kill me? For what? For a girl you have no chance with? Go ahead and kill me!
Marcus: Of course I will kill you. She has loved me more than she ever loved you!
Me: That’s a lie and you it! Your relationship with her didn’t even last for a month
Marcus: Doesn’t matter, she still loves me; you’re the problem for us not coming back together. So with you outta the way…? She’ll crawl back to me!
Me: That’s never going to happen!
Marcus: Maybe not, buh I don’t mind trying or is there harm in trial?
Me: Killing me won’t bring Mirabel back to you; she knows how monstrous you’ve turned into
Marcus: You know… I discovered that, it was only you she had date after me right? So getting her back won’t be much of a problem
Me: She will never get back to yo…
Marcus: **Cuts in** Shut tha f–k up! Now turn around!!
Marcus: Turn around you mother*cker!!
Voice: Drop your weapon!
He got distracted when he faced where the voice came from. I didn’t bother to know whose voice it was; I grabbed the opportunity by attacking him with a spear (Those who watch wrestling like WWE will understand what Spear Attack means) the gun fell off his hand then I rushed to get it and pointed it at him while he was still on the ground groaning. Then I saw Police men coming to the scene.
Police: You drop the gun! **talking to me**
Mirabel: He is the victim here officer!
I dropped the gun; one of the Police men collected it from the ground and handcuffed Marcus. I showed them the other three guys behind my car and they arrested four of them.
The Police told me to visit the station tomorrow to write my statement of which I promised to show up. Then they zoomed off. Mirabel was already hugging me.
Mirabel: Are you Ok?
Me: Yea…I’m still alive **Smiling**
Mirabel: Stop joking **Hits my chest** It’s a good thing that we didn’t come too late
Vincent: But bro, how come those guys are also wounded? What happened here?
Dax: I’m shocked myself, how did you do it Vickey?
Mirabel: You guys should let him get medical attention first before questioning him na. But baby how did you managed to…you know…what really happened?
Me: You guys don’t expect me to stay and watch some guys kill me without fighting back right? It will be nicer if you guys can get me a first aid box or something. I need to call Nancy to know if she’s Ok
Vincent: I will do that!
**I turned to look at him somehow suspicious**
Vincent: I meant the First aid stuff **Sounded suspiciously**
I dialed Nancy’s line when going inside; she said she’s fine, that she’s on her way.
Me: I appreciate you guys for the help; thank you guys
Vincent: You’re welcome bro
Dax: We got your back
Me: But how did you guys know that I was in danger? I was surprised
Mirabel: Well…it was from school I sighted Marcus from afar when he sent one guy to call me of which I ignored. I kept an eye on him to see his reaction. When you announced your departure and left, I saw him also stood up with his gangs and left too after some seconds of your departure. I dialed your number multiple times to inform you maybe they were after you but you didn’t pick up.
Me: Yea…I put it silent during the lectures and forgot to remove it from silent
Mirabel: Okay…I got worried; then I informed Dax and Vincent about it before we drove to the police station in the town, we got some police men and hurried here.
Me: Thanks a lot; you saved me from that psychotic obsessed fellow.
Vincent: So…your own side of the story bro; what happened here? How did you manage to…to to…injure them too?
Nancy interrupted with a knock on the gate; Vincent offered to open the gate. She asked what happened to me as soon as she saw me. I told them everything that happened, the scenes, the action and all except the last conversation between me and Marcus.
Mirabel’s mother – the first lady called me later in the evening to greet me about what happened; Mirabel told her. I saved her number after the call and started calling her from time to time. Mirabel call my mother almost every day as well.
Mirabel spent the night with me to take care of me and the injuries I sustained from Marcus and his gang. But it didn’t stop me from going to school the following day.
After the incidence and the arrest of Marcus and his gang; everything started going smoothly and peacefully.
Ike did exactly what he said he’d do. He handed over his website’s ownership to me with every arrangement necessary. It’s a downloading site that has anything downloadable like Application softwares, games, Hollywood and Bollywood movies, Tv series, Wrestling WWE and TNA, football highlights and full match, music audios and videos, technology features and so much more. He taught me everything I needed to know on how to run the site. The site was extremely large. That was when I got to understand fully that success doesn’t come easily without working for it. I had conflicts with both my studies and the site that made every day a stressful one for me. There were already six people working at the site before I became the owner; I became the boss of six foreign people.
I started earning thousands of dollars (millions of naira) as time passed by. I opened three current accounts in three different banks. I still didn’t stop collecting money from my Parents because I don’t know how to tell them about my source of income
With the underground help from the first lady; Marcus got tried where he was found guilty and got convicted for attempted murder to serve 27 years jail term along with his gangs. The news got into the newspapers because his Father was a notable man in the society and a billionaire at such. The press met with him and questioned him on what he’d say about his son’s case that could ruin his reputation. He simply replied saying that he has no son. Then sources reached the media saying that he has long disowned Marcus as his son.
Sometime later, the meeting for my mother and Mirabel’s mother to meet were arranged and they eventually met in the house I was staying (I was staying there temporally, so I can’t call it my house). My Father was on a work trip when she came with a girl (Her house help) she was quite pretty and well statured. Mirabel’s mother – the first lady came a day after my momma’s arrival. Good compliments came from both ends after their meeting. Momma left a day after their meeting.
Day after day, my bank account kept growing big – odikwa large!
I pay my tithes and also keep 10% from my income for my personal use. I always buy gifts for my sister and my girlfriend and sometimes for my best friend Promise.
One certain day when I was in my best mood because of how happy I was; Vincent approached me requesting for my permission to date my sister Nancy. He caught me unaware seriously. I knew that my sister was matured enough already so I played cool and gentle.
Me: Well…You’ve been a nice guy since I know you and you’re Ok. You can talk to her first then face me if she’ll agree to date you
Vincent: Actually…it was her idea that I should ask for your permission
**Inside my mind I was like what?! Although I still remained cool but my facial expression changed instantly**
Me: That means she has agreed to date you? **controlling myself**
Vincent: Uhmmm…not fully bro, that’s why she told me to seek for your permission
Me: Ok listen up; she knows why she asked you to seek my permission. You can go ahead; she’s smart enough but if you lose your cool towards her? May God help us! She’s never had a boyfriend before which will make you her first. Don’t ever even think of seeing her nakedness talk less of attempting to, because she won’t dare give in and you also shouldn’t even try it.
Vincent: Chill bro…why all this? I’m not s*x inclined please. I came from a Christian home and I was brought up to fear God. I’m not lusting after your sister bro! I fell in love with her because of the kind of person she is. She’s all I ever I dreamed of. She’s a virgin I know and so am I. I hope it doesn’t surprise you. My ex-girlfriend who was also a Christian and we fellowship together broke up with me because of s*x; she thought I was impotent. I don’t like girls that will allow a guy have s*x with her before marriage. Girls that have s*x disgusts me bro! That’s the first thing that got me attracted to your sister when I discovered how reserved and cool she is and how you’ve been protecting her as well. I won’t even kiss her because I’m made to understand that kissing before marriage isn’t right as well. I think you should know that too.
Me: I feel like I’m being blasted
Vincent: **Laughs out** Ahhh! Not like that bro; I’m only trying to defend myself and also present myself clean as well
Me: So…what do you want from my sister?
Vincent: Well…my real intention is to court her. She’s a nice girl and I wouldn’t want her to fall into the wrong hands in the near future by not presenting my intentions towards her from now. So…I’ll like to reserve her for myself before the bad guys come get her first for I wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity because girls like her are very rare.
Me: It’s okay….just trying to make things clear so there won’t be any mishap in the near future
Vincent: I understand; I will do the same for my sister
Me: Good thing we understand each other
Me: So you have a sister or sisters?
Vincent: Three sisters; two are out of the country
Me: And you protect the one at home from guys?
Vincent: Not really, she’s a big girl; she can take care of herself and I trust her
Me: You both are very close?
Vincent: Not really but we share with each other
Me: You know if she has
