Richard: Ella why now
Ella: quiet,so these was why you rushed home,answer me jhoor,how far with the party?
Richard: everything is place
Ella: ok,am so so hungry,please get up the both of you let’s go eat
Richard: what’s on ground?
Me: vegetable soup and semovita
Richard: ah,please let’s go and eat I think am hungry too
Ella: you think she cooked it alone ?
Richard: no,I know you both did and that soup is really gonna be the best I have ever tasted
Me: you talk too much,let’s go
Richard: *smiles* after you girls
When we got to the party venue around 8pm I was surprised with the decoration of the Garden,it looks so funny but amazing,it was decorated both chairs and tables with the combination of pink and red and funny enough Richard had insisted at home that I wear the pink gown and hills he got me on tuesday matched with a red bag,I just couldn’t refuse him after all pink was my best and I knee red was his best but it really now I understood better,he was dressed in simple rich polo *the polo is red crossed with pink colour* and red trousers matched with his black all stars while Ella was dressed just like I was dressed with same bag,the only difference was that her own pink gown has a long white strip at the front.
we matched in and sat down in the hall,much students were already there including James and Jerry,i was amazed,they had same polo as Richard’s,Jerry was on blue trousers while James on black,the polo was really amazing,it matched their dressing so perfectly,I noticed their names at the black of the polo’s top while at the down was the inscription “Precious Day,Love Got Born Again” that was when I turned Richard to look at his back,I didn’t notice it back home,his had his name on it but it wasn’t just Richard it was written “RichardPresh” I just busted out with laughter to the surprise of everyone around
James: why the laughter?
Me: *trying to control my laughter* sorry,forgive my manners,just that the inscription on the polo is funny,love gets born again,hahaha.
I was laughing so hard that the rest around joined in the laughter including Richard,you know that kind of laughter na.
it was really going to be a fun filled night with what am seeing,everyone on different colours of trousers but same polo with their names at the back
Ella: Richard,some of the dressings here are funny o
Richard: yea that’s what I want,I want back to school after dropping you both at home to give them the dress code
Ella: dress code? is there any dress code here other than these colour riot some people here are putting on
Richard: the dress code is be on trousers,the colour of the trousers everyone here is putting on is his/her best colour
Ella: hmm,I see
Jerry: hi Ella!
Ella: hey Jerry,xup James
James: you look amazing tonite Ella
Ella: oh thanks
Jerry: you are looking fabulous
Ella: am flattered! *smiles*
Me: am jealous,what about me?
Richard: don’t let that get you jealous,you should know its only the ugly people call fine
Ella: ah Richard so am ugly?
Richard: I didn’t say you are or did you hear your name?
Ella: ugly boy,God knows I can’t date a guy as ugly as you Richard
Me: leave my Richard o,I like him like that!
Richard: you see! my queen just answered you
Ella: okay,you are teaming up with him now abi,later cry to me that you are missing Richard I would just do some factory reset on that your face
James & Jerry: hahaha

Me: so you support her James?
James: support her? are my mad? are my crazy? I just ask the kind of factory reset so I can do the backup
Me: baby do you hear him?,I will start crying o
Richard: baby don’t cry jawe,they are just jealous
Me: I won’t cry because my baby support me
Richard: guys please excuse me for a while,baby see you in few minutes please
Me: ok love *he left us*
Jerry: eh,Ella please can I see you,I really wish speaking to you about something
Ella: okay * stood up and left with Jerry to a corner leaving myself and James *
James: so hafa now?
Me: don’t talk to me o shey you support Ella
James: ah bae it is play we are na
My self and James just sat on the table hosting and laughing,most of our course mates would just come around to say hi,soon Jerry and Ella came back to join us,I used eyes in communicating with jerry to know the out come,at lest he gave me a positive answer,I smiled.
As about 9pm the M.C spoke up
M.C: hello ladies and men to gen, I would like you all to stood on our feet,if you still like stand on your own feet,yes like I was saying today is a special day but its sweetness won’t be complete if we don’t commit it into God’s able hands…eh close your eyes as we pray if you don’t close your eyes as we pray may the rice and stew they would share here pass you by
M.C: thank you,may the pure water pass you by too and tooth pick be your portion *silence* una no go say Amen?
All: *fun* Amennnn
M.C: so let someone pray for us *James said the prayers and the party was declared open*
M.C: yes now I would like to inform you that we don’t have special time here of sharing of food and drink here,you are free to request for anything any time,there is suya,there is rice,there is beans,there is EBA,fufu even amala,any kind of soup you can think of,there is pepper soup,shawama,piazza,any kind of drink you dream of in these part of the world,those who like ice cream its also here and those who like Milo drinks even indomie but if you know you don’t eat all these things I just mentioned,even chicken,that means its human meat you eat,please go back home
M.C: yes o go home,we don’t have such here and if you decide not to go home holy ghossssst
M.C: thank you all,as you are eating right now or standing or doing whatever you are doing,because some boys bad,they fit dey one corner dey toast babe but regardless what you are doing I want you to put you hands together for Mr.Richard Williams,e no easy to host large quantity of people like these,people wey I dey see here reach five thousand *Richard step out on stage as the people clapped*
Richard: thank you,please there is a cake being shared,its just for the ladies alone,in one of these cakes there is something so special to me that am seeking,once you see it identify and you would be my woman *on hearing that my heart skipped*
Ella: what is Richard up to
Me: what’s the meaning of these
See girls rushing the event planners sharing the cakes,it just a cup cake,as a table contains four I was seated with Jerry,James and Ella.
Richard walks up to us as they where still sharing the cakes
Ella: Richard what is the meaning of these?
Richard: hey calm down *he just inserted a little rose flower on my hair and left*
Ella: am scared now
Me: am just not scared and dying
Jerry: ladies calm down,am certain he knows what he is doing
A girl walked to our table and gave me my own cake,she gave Ella too,after the sharing Richard take up to the stage again
Richard: I believe all the ladies have their cakes now,now carefully get it into your mouth and chew with caution *at these stages ladies were throwing the cakes into their mouth,my heartbeat increased,I just held my own cake,afraid of chewing it,afraid of being disappointed*
Ella ate hers,James and Jerry seem enjoying the fun,in short the men were enjoying the fun,like about five minutes and no one identified finding whatsoever it was that was in the cake I felt I should chew mine,but as I was about getting it into my mouth a girl screamed “aaaah,I found it” my heart seen to fail me immediately but soon it was announced to be a false alert,oh God you just can’t tell the distance my heart had travelled to and had to travel back
Ella: Precious eat yours na.
I throw the whole cake into my mouth and chewed,as I was chewing I felt something, I paused and stared at Ella
Ella: what? did you see it? say something.
I carefully spat everything back to my palm and right there is a diamond ring half covered by cakes,Ella shouted
Ella: yyyyyyeeeeeeeess,over here,she found it,its a ring,Precious found it.
all attention diverted to our table,before I could say the word “jack” Richard was at our table,he took my hand smiling as everyone clapped and took me up to the stage,I couldn’t express how I felt at the moment,he went down on his kneels with everyone’s attention fixed on us,I felt so shy,he took the ring from me while he knelt still on the ground
Richard: its funny how life goes,years ago I was unconscious about life but as I grow I realized something was lost in me,finding you was like having life afresh and I don’t want to let go of these pretty angel I behold in person of you,dear I have spent sleepless nights in your love,I know how it feels,the headache that comes along with missing you so dear,I wouldn’t want my son to feel same for your daughter,get the headaches I have got so I ask you sweetheart,please can we make them brother and sister?
At these point my hands were trying to cover my wide opened mouth,I managed to answer
Me: yes,yes baby,let’s make them brother and sister.
at could hear Ella screaming “wwwwoooo,yes,yea baby” and everyone applauding as he got the ring into my finger and it entered with easy,he stood up and kissed me so deep.
He took me right to cloud 9 at the moment,though I felt so shy after we kissed but I was the happiness woman the world had ever know at the moment,it was indeed a remarkable day in my life,the happiness day I ever spent on earth.
As the music played and we danced on stage,I felt there was non like Richard,each moment I had stole to look into his eyes brings me laughter even without a reason as we danced,I had suddenly forgotten I was under pressure few minutes ago when Richard put up that expensive prank play about the cake.
Sincerely speaking,as we danced many thoughts ran through my mind,Ella came to join us on the dance floor and other present students followed,she seem so happy but I don’t think its half the happiness I felt.
Jerry came to take her hands in dance but she first resisted but I trust Jerry,I was lost in my own illusion,by the time I gained consciousness I saw both dancing too.
I sighted James still sited but with a pretty damsel,I could see both laughing,before I knew it Richard had lifted me into his arms and everyone shouted,quickly I covered my face with my hands trying to bury my head on his chest out of shyness.
A guy taped Richard from behind,he turned,on seeing him he put me down and excused himself from me,Ella quickly came to drag me to her side where she was dancing with Jerry,it was as if she had been waiting for Richard to excuse himself from me
Jerry: congrats on your engagement Precious * he shouted as we danced *
Me: thank you.
I searched for Richard trailing him from the direction he took but the crowd was much,if not that the lights were bright enough I would have seen him,I could see him talking to the guy,soon he collected something from him and asked him then he started searching his way back through the crowed.
He took the microphone and the DJ lowered his music
Richard: surprise! surprise!! surprise!!! * attentions turned to him * surprise for my woman,please can you all follow us outside as I lead my woman * he dropped the microphone and walked to me,holding my hands and leading me out of the big hall while the rest followed *
We got out side,he lead us to a black new car out side
Richard: these red spider here,sweedy, is a token of my love to you *handing me over the key*
Some were applauding while some exclaiming,a girl even shouted from the crowd ” Richard love me too nah* in my own part I was speechless standing with the car key,Ella urged me to open the car,and I did,inside was indeed marvelling, I just didn’t shout,not because I don’t want to shout but because I was so lost of words,I could thousand hands admiring the car
Me: oh sweetheart thanks a lot * I managed to say at last
Richard: c’mon baby let’s go dance * he said coming to take my hands * I shut the door then we all went back to the dance floor.
I danced till I got tired of dancing so I took to a table and Richard joined me ordering for what we ate.
Even with the joy and gladness in my heart and I wishing the night never comes to an end I still felt I needed to sleep but I just font want to leave.
As at 3am Ella was also very tired so she urged Richard to take us home,he said ok and was like Ella should ride with me in my new ride home while he drives alone but I just had to tell him the gospel truth that I can’t drive,he made fun of me and then ask Ella to drive my new ride with me.
Ella asked me to seat comfortably at the back as the madam of the car but I refused and sat with her at the front.
Well I really felt bad inward that I wasn’t the first to drive my first ever car on earth because I couldn’t drive so as Ella drove I pleaded with her to start teaching me how to drive as soon as possible and she promised me that we start in the evening of that Sunday,she drove behind Richard.
Before we got to the lodge *Ellas* i was already asleep though it was a very short drive but I was really tired probably that made me sleep off. I only woke up when Richard was trying to back me,seeing that I was already at his back I closed my eyes and resumed the sleep from where I had stopped earlier.
I woke up around 10am only to discover Richard wasn’t around,he left a note on the table for me saying “don’t look for me,don’t get worried about me because I have gone to church to thank God for dropping me an angel” I smiled and walked into Ella’s room,she was still sleeping so I decided to let her be but before I walk up to her door I heard her voice
Ella: Richardpresh wadup?
Me: *turning* good morning,naughty girl I thought you were still sleeping *sat on her bed*
Ella: dear I really need the sleep,that guy Jerry was just drawing me around all in the name of dance
Me: hahaha,funny you,so how did it go,did he ask you out?
Ella: yes he did
Me: *happy* you said yes right?
Ella: na so you take accept Richard?
Me: hahaha,accept jhoor. so what did you tell him
Ella: jẹ ki mi ro ti o si fun u pada
a reply * let me think of it and give him back a reply *
Me: ah Ella ti o ba wa ju buburu * ah Ella you are too wicked *
Ella: that’s not wickedness, its just for him to feel the pains of waiting so that when he finally gets me he won’t joke with my love
Me: well that’s good but please accept o so Jerry won’t die
Ella: abeg what of Richard?
Me: left for church
Ella: okay.mehn last night was wow
Me: which wow,when your brother almost killed me with surprise
Ella: hahaha,that cake stuff i almost had heart attack
Me: Richard is just good at giving surprises
Ella: enjoy him now that he is still around so you won’t miss him much when he is away
Me: I don’t know if I can really stand his absence for long
Ella: come stay in my lodge
Me: you won’t understand
Ella: understand what again
Me: how would your father feel when he comes here and meet an inmate here
Ella: is that the problem, well my parents had always wanted me to have someone staying with me and besides they don’t visit me in school
Me: and if they do
Ella: they would be so glad especially when they find out you are Richard’s girl
Me: okay I would move in next semester
Ella: for your information you have moved in already *her phone rings* my dad *takes in the call* hello dad,Richard? yes he is in Lagos here, news headline? yes dad am aware he proposed to a girl and the girl in question is my course mate,dad if you see her eh you would like her,okay dad,she is decent,yes,school is fine,dad next week exams start,I have enough, am not even using the car so how would it get spoilt,okay dad,tell mummy to call me *ends call smiling*
Me: how did HD no,what did he say?
Ella: calm down,he says congrats to you and Richard
Me: how did he get to know?
Ella: he said it’s all over the front page of the papers and news online
Me: how come?
Ella: I don’t know,or Richard?
Richard: *rush into her room with a punch news paper* Ella,see these *threw it to her*
I read through it with her “The President’s Son,Give The Most Romantic Proposal To One Miss Precious Oyege”
Ella: why did you do these, what kind of surprise is these
Richard: I dont know of these,my mum called MD in church and my dad also did almost immediately, I had to go get the papers
Me: *my heart skipped, all that came to my mind was my dad* my dad!Jesus.
I stood up and rushed to my own side of the room to get my phone, I was shocked to see 71 miss calls both from my dad,mum and Michael
Me: oh my God,what do I tell my parents
About 10 minutes later Richard drove to school,I pleaded with him to drive to my old lodge so I can pick my things and he accepted after that we drove back to Ella’s lodge,in the evening my driving lessons continued.
The day ran so fast,soon it was tuesday,the guy Richard said was going to give me the learner’s permit didn’t show up the previous day,Richard on his own part was ready to leave,I felt it would be so selfish of me crying and asking him to stay again knowing fully well the numerous excuses he made to his parents the previous day so I held back my tears and bide him a safe journey back to abuja
Richard: am giving you an assignment,each day you must send me 8 love text messages
Me: no problem,please go now that am trying all my best to hold back my tears before I break down
Richard: Ella,thanks a lot,don’t forget to ask me for anything,anything at all once you need it
Ella: yea I won’t,thanks,I will miss you
Richard: would get to meet you guys soon enough before you know it
Ella: safe trip. my regards to everyone,I had Sharon is around call me as soon as you get home and see her so I can speak with her
Richard: no problem* kissed me and got into his car,I just waved him as the gateman opened up the gate for him to drive off*
Ella: make sure you don’t think of Richardpresh as you drive to avoid accident o * she echoed as he drove out of the compound *
Me: I will miss him
Ella: I know,but all thanks to God he left so we can start studying especially you
Me: let’s go freshen up
Ella: yea but sorry,you would climb the stairs now yourself because Richardpresh isn’t here now to back you up stairs *lol*
Me: *frown* jealous girl,I will walk I have legs
Ella: yes ma *lol*
That week classes seem to be boring since its just revision most times,I don’t fail to do Richard’s assignment everyday since he left and he has always replied me,I had the opportunity speaking to his kid sister Sharon on Thursday and she sounded so cool and interesting just like Ella but I really don’t think any other person can match the spot in my heart Ella has matched,she is indeed a sister,a big sister because she is 9months older than me.
Sharon had told me she can’t wait seeing me,she just wanted to confirm if those photos of me Richard had shown her were really me.
She said pictures do lie a lot and Richard is the prefect type when it comes to photoshoping pictures.
well it was really fun speaking with her.
On Friday I met Monday on campus,Monday is my ex guy,Michael knew about him
Monday: presh what are my hearing
Me: hi Monday,what do you say you heard?
Monday: that you were engaged last Saturday,hope its not true?
Ella: who is these?
Me: Ella calm down
Monday: who is these one asking who is these,are you blind to see it’s a human standing ?
Ella: oh sorry dear,you know most times we mistake humans for goats simply because there are no difference between them and goats
Monday: oh my God,I don die,see these b—h calling me a goat,cheap w—e
Me: enough of these, see Monday,you don’t have the right to question what I do with my life,we ain’t dating again so its not as if I cheated on you so why so concerned about who I date

Me: are you insane? does she look to you as a w—e?
Monday: Precious even you,even you,you now talk back at me?

Me: Ella na let’s go,stop these,leave these guy
Ella: no let him do his worst now *as I was holding Ella,from now where Jerry jumped out followed by James,maybe he thought Monday was beating Ella*
Jerry: guy what’s your problem,you want to show your strength on women?
Monday: *pushing Jerry away* who is these fool?
Ella: imagine these goat,I just asked a simple question who he is and he took offence at it calling me a w—e
Jerry: guy,I am asking you question and you are pushing me away?
Monday: and what would you do,no tel…*he has barely completed it when james landed him a punch on his nose and Jerry brushed his feet off the soil on which it stood,within 3 seconds Monday was seated on the floor with blood zooming off his nose.I got scared and started pleading*
Me: please Jerry, please james,let him go
Monday: you both are fighting me,me Monday,in these campus
James: *slapping him* you still dey talk?
Me: you no no who I be *tried getting up but Jerry returned him to the floor with another brushing*
Jerry: thunder fire you,anything wey you be na for your pocket
Me: *drawing the both of them* please leave him,please
Ella: let them deal with these animal so when next he sees us he would take to his heels
Me: ah Ella,stop these,you want them to kill him?, see students gathered
Ella: is these one alive? these bastardized amoeba!
I managed to pull them off Monday whom at his end stood up and started walking away threatening to be back
James: just dey run anytime you see me because anything wey make you do pakine you don die be that
Me: leave him let’s go nah
Monday is a student of computer science,we use to be lovers back then when I got into university of Lagos newly,he was a 200 level student then who helped me run all my school processing then and was cold headed,he is handsome too and brilliant but the rate at which he changed still surprises me each time his thought comes to my mind.
he actually started misbehaving when he asked for sex and I turned him down then we were already dating,we broke up before my first semester exams in my 300 level while he was in 400,and ever since we broke up,though in the same school I have never seen him for the past months,about 10months if am not mistaken only to see him today showing off his stupid talent
Ella: you should have left me to deal with that fool
Jerry: bae its ok
Me: I need to inform Richard
Ella: for what? because of these moimoi case? these donkey you call your ex is too small for me to finish under 5minutes
Ella: what,isn’t he a donkey!
James: that guy is just so lucky,you are just his saviour today
Me: please am having headache already,I need to go to the lodge and sleep,if you guys want to kill him,you are free to go back
Jerry: we would be leaving now then
Ella: no,you are coming to my lodge today and now,hope no problem!! *Jerry and James stared at each other for a while*
James: no,no problem,as long as food is involve.
Me: you and food
James: see me see trouble o,I talk my mind na,you nkor? you and Richard
I was still thinking of what to say when my mom called,I take in the call
Me: hello mummy
Mom: Precious what are my hearing?

Mom: let me believe its not your own precious *I could hear my dad shout “what do you its not are own precious,give me the phone”*
Dad: hello,precious,if you know what ever relationship you have gotten yourself into with the son of the president you better undo it as fast as possible,so I am wasting my money in sending you to school? did I send you to university of Lagos to get a man or to study ?

Precious: father all you are asking is hard,Richard is not the kind of man you think,he might be the president’s son but he is decent

Richard: that reminds me,I contacted the guy that would prepare your Lerner’s permit, so you should be getting it by tomorrow
Me: wow,thanks honey.
For the rest of that day,its being call after call either from my own side or that of Richard or Ella.
By evening Ella and Richard started teaching me how to drive.
By Monday morning Richard was set to go,I found myself crying and begging him not to go
Me: baby I can’t live without you
Richard: baby am not dying,stop making it look like am going to die or would never come back
Me: being out of my sight is like taking breath out of me
Richard: baby,I must go
Me: please baby please
Ella: Precious understand nah
Richard: Ella don’t worry,Richardpresh,I would stay for today but you must let me go tomorrow
Me: *wiping my tears* thanks love thanks
Ella: Richard but what of your parents,what would you tell them
Richard: when I get to that bridge I would cross it,oyah baby let’s go up so you get ready for school
Me: ok baby,but my legs are aching me,I can’t walk up stairs
Richard: that’s no problem,I will carry up upstairs
Ella: please stop making me jealous
Richard: then get a boyfriend*backing me*
Me: *laughing* yes,get yours
Ella: okay o,before we know it tuesday would come and Richard would leave,shey its me and you in these house
Me: Richardpresh,are you listening to her threats?
Richard: baby don’t mind him
Me: I trust you *Richard starts moving with me in his back*
my self and Ella dressed up for classes and Richard dropped us off,after lectures Jerry walked up to Ella and excused her,Ella later came back to meet me
Ella: no,am still thinking about it,so I told him
Me: okay o,so what car were you talking about yesterday with your dad
Ella: my car
Me: where is it?
Ella: at my lodge there na
Me: are you kidding me?
Ella: no,I own the black SUV you once asked me about
Me: but you said you don’t know the owner
Ella: was just kidding,I just don’t want to be seeing driving about the school,by the way that would make every man on campus wishing to date me and you know these kind of thing,men we truly love me won’t have the courage to approach me,they would me saying am above their level
Me: hmmm,you must drive that car o,by fire by force
Ella: *lol* I will,once I finally accept Jerry
Me: eh? so you love him and you just pretending?
Ella: maybe,please call Richard to come pick us up
Me: who is Richard?
Ella: what do you mean who is Richard,my cousin of course
Me: oh you mean Richardpresh?
Ella: *lol* I fear o,sorry ma,please call Richardpresh to come pick us up
Me: better but we would go to my lodge first so I would pick my clothes
Ella: no problem!!!..
Since we didn’t come with my ride to school we all walked to Ella’s lodge.
James and Jerry were really surprised at the kind of lodge Ella stays,on entering inside Jerry felt cold only James still had a free mind of making jokes and all that
James: these lodge is one in town
Me: you can say that again

Everything went down well with us all,no sign of Monday again,we still started our exams smoothly,thank God Richardpresh wasn’t around,if he was to be around with his everyday surprises I wasn’t sure I would have been able to concentrate on my studies.Thanks to the four of us,we read together every now and then,i.e myself,Ella,James and Jerry.
Jerry and Ella’s love grew so well too though most times I get to pity James and stay around with him just to make sure he doesn’t feel left out.
Two weeks to our examination and we were so cool with each other,as for my self and Richardpresh, am still doing his assignment always so we really don’t feel the distant between us.
a week to the end of our exams he informed me that his parents would want to meet me and these got Mr really scared and I didn’t hide my fears away from him but he told me there was nothing to fear.
My dad also called to know when our exams was to finish and I lied we have two weeks left and he reminded me to get back as soon as possible and as at then Michael was done with his service and was in delta with them.
My exams didn’t stop me from my driving lessons and being that the guy to get me the learner’s permit had done that I was able to start driving to school in my car just a week to the end of my exams while Ella was enjoying hers with her loverboy Jerry.
Two days to our exams I called Richard to know if he was still gonna come to school to see me but he said he couldn’t make it but I shouldn’t worry that he would surely be in delta to see me and msybd from there we can drove down to see his parents.
I was really sad he wouldn’t be coming to see me in school but since he promised to be in delta I kept my calm.
After we had our last papers my department hosted a party wish we all attended on Saturday, at the party many girls and guys were trying to make friends with me,I was sensible enough not to give them much audience and these had discouraged them.
Jerry was just all over Ella,making me miss my Richard like its been years I last saw him.
Three days to the day I was to travel to delta I pleaded with Michael to come down to my school so he can drive me home in my car since i was still learning and being a loving brother he came the next day.
That guy he too like woman,if not that I told him Ella was into a serious relationship he would have start wooing Ella just for the full 36 hours he spent
Michael: these lodge is cool o
Me: yes,my friend owns it
Michael: shey that fine girl?
Michael: who is she self?
Me: Richard’s cousin
Michael: chai that girl fine die
Michael: aunty easy with the name am your senior
Me: Ella is engaged already
Michael: thank God
Michael: thank God na its just engagement and not marriage
Me: you are sick,don’t try what’s in your mind o
Michael: what do you know is in my mind
Me: you know that I know you very well
Michael: okay fine,thank God you know me too
Michael: Ella is no go area
Michael: I know,at lest she would be a post area
Me: don’t say I didn’t tell you o
Michael: so wadup with school
Me: do you know Monday misbehaved
Michael: as as how?
Me: *lol* please don’t make me laugh. Monday confronted me for dating Richard instead of coming back to him
Michael: he just came and said that or was he having charm in his mouth
Me: I don’t know for him
Michael: and you didn’t abi you couldn’t slap away the 4 years he already spent in these school?
Ella: * entering the room* hello guys
Me: Ella meet my senior brother Michael,Michael meet my school sister Ella
Ella: hi mike
Michael: bae you are gallant, I see you well
Ella: hahaha,Presh is these the luxguy you talked about?
Michael: yes na,the only luxguy you can and would ever meet
Michael: Michael the question was for me not you
Michael: e bad if I answer
Ella: hope you have eaten
Michael: yea I ate in the bus
Ella: bus me,that means you haven’t eaten so let me get you something to eat
Michael: I just need to take a hot shower first!
Elka: hot shower? from a long hot journey you just made?
Michael: that’s what my body needs
Me: let me boil hot water for you then
Ella: no let me do it for him
Me: really? okay na shey you think she would go to delta with us?
Michael: bae,these room smell of jealousy why?
Ella: *lol* Presh don’t be jealous jhoor,please come let me show you to your room
Michael: okay thanks *stood up*
Ella lead Michael always to his room.for the rest of that day,it was Ella and Michael,you either see them both seated and laughing on gist or you see them both in the kitchen together and I wasn’t comfortable would that.
well I really don’t blame Ella,Michael is somehow having honey coated mouth,I just feel so concerned for Jerry so I called Michael to order in his room while Ella was in our room bathing
Me: Michael am afraid of you,hope you haven’t wooed Ella
Michael: what sort of question is that
Me: Ella is engaged,please I won’t want you to start playing much around her
Michael: listen Precious,am your elder brother and should be regarded as such okay,that I made a joke of dating her when I arrived here doesn’t mean I wanna do that.
Me: that’s not it
Michael: enough Precious,if you want me to leave first thing in the morning I will,am not here to argue about anything with you
Me: am sorry,just feeling concerned.
I also decided talking to Ella about it so I left to the room and meet her creaming her body,imagine on opening the door what she asked was
Ella: Michael is that you?
I was really becoming irritated
Me: Michael co,I want to talk to you about something
Ella: *facing me* okay go on
Ella: please please don’t mention him to me now
Me: what’s wrong?
Ella: we had a fifth about two days ago and he is yet to apologize so please don’t tell me of him
Me: but He…
Ella: *interrupting me* please where is Michael?
Ella: don’t tell me you are jealous,I don’t know you to be like these
Me: Ella for crying out loud you are in a relationship and you know am dating your cousin so ….
Ella: *stopped creaming her body* so its all about you right? its all about yourself and yourself alone?
Ella: that’s selfish of you,okay fine if you don’t want me to go close to your brother its fine by me,I won’t,maybe when next I see him we (herself and michael) should start fightingMe: you are taking these too far Ella,you couldn’t even tell me you had a fight with Jerry
Ella: enough,you made your point and I get it so don’t stress these any further
Ella: you can have the room to yourself,I would just go to the other room *started walking out of the room*
I just don’t get it anymore but I think I realized my mistakes now,it was really wrong poke nosing into their affairs and questioning them like they were under my care,I was just feeling concerned for Jerry
I fell weakly to the bed,trying to think out something reasonable but couldn’t,I decided to go plead with Ella,like seriously I wasn’t meaning to hurt Ella’s feeling,I was even thinking I was polite enough with her.
On opening the door of the room she had gone into I met heard her sobbing,she was just on her white towel,just the way she was while leaving the room because then she was creaming her body
Me: Ella,am really sorry,please stop crying *she said nothing,she just kept sobbing,I moved closer and sat on the bed* Ella please am sorry
Ella: *crying* why on earth would you think I will date your brother knowing fully well that you are into a serious relationship with Richard, does that mean you don’t trust me. does that mean am so loosed
Me: please am sorry,am really sorry,I don’t know what came over me
Ella: I just admire him because he looks exactly like my dead boyfriend, an as jovial as him *she cried*
Me: you lost a boyfriend? am sorry,please stop crying *wiping her tears with my palm* I don’t like it seeing him cry
Ella: *still crying* Jerry tried to rape me
Me: jerry did what? *shocked* no Ella jerry can’t do such thing * holding her like she was a child and pressing her head against my chest* how can Jerry do such,what happened?
Ella: he tried to rape me,he asked for sex and I refused,not because I don’t want it just that I was on my period,and you know how painful it is *she cried*
Me: oh my God,I never believe Jerry can do such a thing,baby am sorry,am sorry on his behave please,hope he didn’t succeed ?
Ella: when I refused and wanted to leave because I don’t want him to know I was on my flow,he slapped me and pushed me to his bed,he tried tearing off my gown that was when his brother rushed in and stopped him *she tried wiping her tears* so Jerry is a monster,I will make such Michael deal with him,he won’t go scot free,why didn’t you tell me all these while
Ella: I was ashamed,I love Jerry,I never believe he could such thing,Precious,right now I hate him,I regret ever loving him
Me: stop crying,go wear your cloth,I will go tell Michael about these *I draw her up,leading her out of the room*
I stayed in Michael room pissing around,I don’t know if I was anger or disappointed in Jerry or probably it was a mixed feeling of both regret,anger and disappointment, I never believed Jerry could do such,I was deeply angered in spirit,I trusted Jerry even more than I had trusted my own brother,I thought he was just the best for Ella,who would have told me he was a monster,even if I was told would I have believed,i thought i knew him best,more than anyone
Michael: what happened again,why are you walking up and down,hope you didn’t go to fight Ella,Precious stop taking these too far,i am not dating her,i just like her friendliness and nothing more,please don’t created problems for me. let me even go and check on her *stood up and started walking to the door*
I don’t know if to tell him or let him be,i am the cause of everything, I should never had spoken to Ella on Jerry’s behave *he opened the door and left the room* I don’t know what to really do,Michael is the type that has anger problem,he hardly gets angry though but once he does,one can hardly calm him down.
if I tell him he might want to go fight Jerry and i know james won’t stay out of these,he must want to fight for his brother and they might end up inflecting wounds on each other,I just don’t know what to do.
I quickly opened the door probably to stop him from seeing Ella but it was too late,he was already in the room with Ella narrating everything to him *I stood at the door post unnoticed*
Michael: who did you say the jerry of a guy is to you again?
Ella: my boyfriend
Michael: hmmm,Ella am really speechless,I wish it was someone else that would have been different,I would have beaten him to coma but these your guy,if I react now my sister might start thinking we are having a secret affair *Ella notice me* just decide what you want,if you want me to still go fight him for you I will but still try seat and think what came over him,does he react like that before and all that,still think if you still want to continue with the relationship, remember mistakes are bound to happen in every relationship and non is perfect,look deep within you and see if you would forgive him if he comes begging now
Ella: I will never forgive Jerry
Michael: you will if you love him
Me: *cleared throat and Michael turned,noticing my presence too* Michael it was all my fault
Michael: stop the blames if not she might never be able to get off the shock
Ella: Jerry slapped me,me Ella,can he slap me on a normal good day if I wasn’t dating him * crying * I will deal with Jerry, he would get to know the kind of family I came from * picking her phone *
Me: who are you calling?
Ella: leave me,I must tell my brothers about these,I will make sure they beat hell out of jerry
Michael: * collecting the phone from her * I will take care of him.come show me were he stays * Ella stood up immediately leading him off the room after grabbing her car keys*
Me: Michael please don’t do anything bad,don’t fight him
Ella: are you coming or not?
Me: I am
We drove down to James and Jerry’s hostel and Ella got down
Precious: Michael please don’t fight
Michael: am not fighting,would just make the guy apologize
Me: thanks *we got down too*
On getting to their door Ella hits it,but no one answered,we knocked and knocked but no answer,a hostel mate came to tell us that they travelled
Ella: let’s go,its already dark,I will meet jerry at the right time
Michael: Ella,forget about everything okay,it was a normal mistake,just take it like that.
The next day I noticed Ella and Michael’s friendship increased its closeness but I wasn’t bothered,at lest I fully know that the next day myself and Michael would be travelling back to delta and I was certain Ella wasn’t ready for another relationship.
I was with her when her phone started ringing,first she refused picking up that was when I realized it was Jerry
Me: Ella pick up,that’s Jerry right? so hear him out
she took the call and placed it on speaker
Jerry: hello dear,its me Jerry
Ella: what do you want?
Jerry: please,am so ashamed,I don’t know what came over me,I just had to travel the next day because I was so ashamed of facing you
Ella: are you fone? have a nice day then *hung up*
I wanted to beg on Jerry’s behalf but I remembered he isn’t worth it
Michael: Precious,mummy called
Mr: what did she say?
Michael: nothing,just asking if you finished your exams today and I said yes and we would be back tomorrow and she said okay
Jerry called for the rest of that day but Ella never took in his calls again and me I never bothered saying anything concerning it again,Jerry had lost my trust for him.
The next morning we left Lagos after biding Ella good bye,she said she would be travelling back to Abuja as soon as she finishes what she is doing in Lagos and she promised visiting me in delta too.
I felt really bad leaving Ella but I had to go.
before we left Richard called and for the first time he spoke with Michael,they both talked at length before Michael handed back the phone to me,he told me he has pleaded with Michael to drive carefully and we laughed it over,he also promised to call every 15minutes to check on us which he did.
We got to delta early around 3,driving into the compound Juliet ran out to welcome us.
I was glad to be home,with the semester ending well.
Richard called to know if we had gotten home and I said yes,he said now he could relax his mind and I should also be expecting him in a week’s time.
I was so happy with the news, I never thought anything could go wrong..
I called Ella to tell her we were home not knowing Michael already told her.
END OF THIS SESSION
Men and their way of life,they always tend to be so friendly with beautiful women.
after my call to Ella we got inside and i was faced with my parents
Me: good evening dad,good evening mum * Michael already went inside before me *
Mum: my daughter,you are welcome
Me: thank you ma
Mum: how was your tripe
Me: fine mom but stressful
Dad: how did your exams go
Me: we thank God
Michael: * coming out from the room * you guys should come and see Precious car
Mum: you don’t mean it * standing up *
Dad: woman,sit down
Michael: dad what’s the matter
Dad: Michael sit down,Precious take your sit also * we all did * Juliet go inside * she left * I would have allowed you drop your bag and rest and probably bring up these case tomorrow but there is no need,you see my children, there are so many things you don’t know about these life.
Michael: dad I don’t get any thing from all you have said
Dad: listen to me and stop interrupting me
Michael: sorry dad
Dad: better. I and your mother had passed through a lot in these life just to make sure we give the best to our children,there are things I would want to let you know but I can’t but the little I can tell you is that first,you would have to put an end to anything you are doing or having with the president son
Dad: kept quiet let me finish
Michael: calm Precious
Dad: secondly you would return that car to him.don’t worry if car is your problem I would get you one
Mum: my husband,you have spoken well and am not against you but I won’t be wrong if I ask you to give us your reason for all these
Michael: exactly father
Dad: I don’t want any body to come after my daughter or my family just to get at the president
Mum: is that the only reason or there is something you are not telling us?
Dad: I believe I have said it all and I was so clear enough
Michael: ah papa,is that why you would want to rain your daughter’s happiness, see papa nothing would happen after all she is both the first person to be marrying a president son,is it not somebody that gave birth to the first lady
Me: papa I love Richard so much,my happiness with him is not for the things he gets me nor because he is the president son but because I love him so much for who he is,please papa,nothing would happen to me or anyone of us,even Richard assured me that,all I need now is my family’s support and not condemnation please father
Mum: my husband, I support what Michael and Precious have said,not that am saying you are wrong nor being over protective but all am trying to say is that you see these young man Richard before deciding on these issue * everywhere was quiet,I was scared already of my father’s next reply but I kept calm waiting for his take in it,he didn’t say a word,he just buried his head in his palm for some mistakes then he stood up taking the news paper that had been lying on that seat with him,then he stared into the eyes of everyone present
Dad: * turning to me * the young man,tell the young man that I would like to have words with him * he walked into his room *
Michael: dont worry,its settled
Mum: come to your mother my daughter * I went to seat with her * God has favoured you and would continue to favour you
Mum: all your life journey would be a success
Michael: mom,come and see your daughter’s new car
Mum: *standing* come and show me my son
Very thing kept going smoothly in delta,before I forget Ella called me that she would be travelling back to abuja *that was 4 days after we travelled* but firstly she would come over to delta to meet her brother so both can go see the governor,she said she would come over to our side with her brother after they must had seen the governor,I was so happy and asked her to come quickly,I had missed Ella so much already.
I also informed Richard that my dad wants to have words with him,he said when he comes the following week he would see father meanwhile Michael took over my driving lessons.
Most times the three of us would drive into asaba just for fun.
My father never disturbed me about Richard again either did my mother trying reminding me like she would have always done before.
Six days after I had a talk with Ella over the phone she called asking for my house address that she was in delta already with her brother and would like to come over to see myself and Michael, I wasted no time in sending the house address to her and about 3 hours later a jeep drove into our compound,Ella and a young handsome guy came down from the jeep,I rushed to hug her. As in the way in which I shouted out of joy alerted my parents and made them rush out thinking something was wrong
Me: oh my God,Ella you are looking so amazing
Ella: you what are you eating,your beauty is become something else,if Richard gets to see you now eh he wouldn’t believe his eyes
Me: *whispering into her ears* who is these cutie?
Ella: oh forgive my manners,Jetty,meet Precious,Richar

Me: wow,Jetty nice meeting you
Jetty: *soft voice* nice meeting you too,I have had a lot about you and I must confess the only fake thing I have seen is the beauty aspect of it because you are more much beautiful than described
Me: and I must confess your handsomeness is charming
Jetty: *lol* I don’t know women to flatter men
Me: am not flattering you c’mon
Jetty: Richard had made a nice choice I must confess
Mum: Precious,what was the shout for? *standing by the door with my dad*
Me: mom,dad,meet Ella,my course mate and Jetty,her junior bother,they are both Richard’s cousins
Mum: oooh,my children you are both welcome,come inside please
Dad: welcome my children,hope locating here wasn’t a problem
Jetty: not at all sir
Mum: you mean you came all the way from Lagos abi abuja just to see your friend
Ella: not at all ma,we actually had a meeting with the governor so we decided to visit and probably return back to to abuja tomorrow or next
Jetty: that’s true ma
Mum: you are both welcome,oyah come inside *all walking inside*
Ella: what of Michael?
Me: he went to get something with my little sister
Dad: please don’t mind the look of the house,just manage it
Jetty: *lol* these isn’t something of manage,the house is awesome *got to the sitting room and all sat down
Dad: your parents have houses in delta too?
Jetty: no not at all
Mum: when did you both arrive here
Jetty: let’s say two days ago
Mum: so where have you been staying?
Ella: we lodged in asaba
Dad: she. your friend has a house here,you didn’t do well
Jetty: we are sorry sir
Mum: both of you would stay here till whenever you decide going back to abuja
Ella: oh thank you sir,thank you ma
Jetty: my most gratitude sir,we feel honoured
Me: Ella you are shining
Mum: aunty Ella you are shining can you please show them to a room,so they can take their bath while we cook them something nice
Me: okay mom,please come with me *both followed*
30 minutes later Michael drove back with Juliet,I went to give him the news out side knowing fully well that he would be happy
Me: guess what?
Michael: what? who own these jeep,is Richard here?
Me: no,Ella is here
Michael: Ella?, you are kidding me right?
Me: no,she came along with her junior brother
Michael: where are they now?
Me: in their room,they would be staying for some time
Me: he was even the one that asked them to stay
Michael: wow,you should know what that means then
Michael: father has accepted Richard indirectly
Me: I think so too
Juliet: brother Mike,I packed everything in the car already
Michael: okay thank you
Juliet: sister Precious,a lady is in the kitchen cooking with mother
Me: you don’t mean it
Juliet: who is she?
Me: my friend
Juliet: hmmm,she is pretty too
Me: Michael,abeg we are going to join mother in the kitchen,Juliet let’s go
On entering the kitchen I heard my mom praising Ella
Mum: am really surprised,I thought children of your status don’t cook oh,that was why I got scared when you came inside the kitchen
Ella: ah ma,that’s not true,we all in our family cook *Juliet wanted to enter the kitchen but I held her back,we stood at the door*
Mum: same with mine just that Michael has started doing shakara to enter kitchen and cook
Ella: *lol* that’s a man for you
Me: *entering with Juliet* wow,hope you won’t start bribing my parents with your cooking
Ella: trust me nah,you know I will,is that Juliet?
Me: yea,my little sis that I told you about
Ella: she is more pretty than you,Juliet hi?
Me: am jealous
Juliet: am fine ma
Ella: I like your voice
Juliet: thank you,I like you,you are looking like an angel
Me: mom,these two has turned your kitchen to rhyme store
Mum: hahaha,you children will not kill me
Michael: *coming into the kitchen*helloooo somebody
Ella: hiiii,where have you been
Michael: can’t believe it,Ella,you are here truly
Mum: now you believe,please leave my kitchen,go and keep jetty company
Michael: allow me greet my baby first these woman
Ella and Jetty stay in my house really made the house lively,just like Ella got so fond of Michael was the same way Juliet got fond of Jetty,laughter never seized from the house,they spent more days than they had planned because Richard begged them to stay till he comes so we all can all go back to abuja together,I mean,myself,Richard,Ella and Jetty.
Jetty was a good crime planner,and that was what my kid sister Juliet really enjoys.
most times when mother would go to the market and buy orange,Jetty would always refuse and playful tell my parents
Jetty: all these fruits gotten from the market are always and never as sweet as stolen ones,I love stolen oranges better
Mum: which one is stolen oranges?
Jetty: Juliet,hafa,any orange tree close?
Juliet: next compound
Jetty: oya let’s go and steal
Jetty: mama forget ,you will like it o
Dad: oyah let’s go and steal,next compound
We all would always laught till we get tired of laughing,I was really glad they were free with everyone of my family members..
The house was indeed fun filled,I was really hoping it ends no soon.
Something baffles me and that’s the way Jetty is pretty cool with the pidgin English than Ella
Jetty: let’s play these riddle
Juliet: go on
Michael wasn’t around,mum and dad were seated at one corner of the parlour while myself Ella,Juliet and Jetty sat at a corner
Jetty: if you are asked to choose between sense and wealth which would you take?
Me: that’s a question not a riddle
Jetty: you too talk,answer my question
Ella: as for me I will go for sense
Juliet: me too
Me: sense of course
Jetty: chai,sorry guys,its so obvious you guys really need the sense because if it’s to be me I would go for wealth
Ella: and leave sense!,why?
Me: wealth without sense
Jetty: *lol* you are wrong because I have sense that’s why am going for wealth
Juliet: uncle Jetty I don’t understand
Jetty: I have sense and don’t have wealth so I would go for wealth na,its what one lacks he goes after,you guys lack sense and wealth but you decided to take sense,which is nice but me I have sense so I go for wealth
Dad: hahaha Jetty
Mum: these boy is wise,look at you people,Jetty is wiser
Juliet: thank God have not chosen
Mum: ah Juliet,I told u never to lie
Juliet: mum I just said me too,but you guys didn’t ask what the me too was for,of course its for wealth
Ella: Jetty so I your senior sister don’t have sense that’s what you are meaning?.Jetty: no na,you said that your self that’s why you decided going for sense
By next week Tuesday Richard was around,it was really a full house
Richard: *on call* baby am outside your house

Richard: no problem sir,thank you ma *both went back into the room before Jetty came out*.
Jetty: bros Rich
Richard: see my main man *shakes* how had it been
Jetty: well we just here chilling like its no man’s business
Richard: funny man,met with the governor?
Jetty: leave that man,please bro let’s talk about the living and forget about the dead
Richard: who died?
Jetty: calm down sis,I only spoke of the governor not his son
Me: ah,interesting,so the governor’s son is on board now?
Ella: Jetty if I slap you,governor ko son no
Jetty: these slap you have been keeping for me eh,let me not talk
Richard: so Ella which of the governor son
Ella: don’t mind Jetty
Jetty: mind me o,is George,that monkey *lol*
Everyone joined his laughter *lol*
About an hour later mum and dad came out
Dad: *seating down* please everyone excuse us apart from Richard *everyone did but I remained*
Dad: my daughter must have told you I wanted to see you I believe
Richard: yes sir
Dad: good,I want us to have an important discussion
Mum: Precious,your father asked you to excuse him but you stayed,oyah follow the rest
Me: *frown* mummy
Mum: oyah my friend,follow them
I walked out of the room angrily,about an hour later I was called on in the parlour so I went join them
Dad: *to me* seat down *I did* I have spoken with Richard here and I must confess he is understanding *I looked at Richard,he wasn’t smiling nor was he frowning,I got even scared*
Me: I don’t understand dad
Mum: then listen,at lest he is still talking
Me: soory mum
Dad: am only allowing these relationship because of the promise Richard here made me and that is to ensure of your safety always and I have seen he is a perfect gentle man
Me: ah,thanks dad,thanks a lot,thanks mum am so elated
Dad: but you must be careful on your own,make no quarrel with any man or woman okay?
Me: yes father
Mum: not just yes father without duinh as instructed
Me: mama I will,trust me
Richard: please sir,I will like to plead that Precious return to the presidential villa with me,my parents wish to see her
I sensed father felt uncomfortable with that but before he could reply mum already did
Mum: no problem,you have our permission, just bring her home at the right time and unharmed
Richard: sure ma I will
Haven’t gained my parents support I was so happy,Richard also spoke to Michael about work when he returned from his job seek.
the next day,myself,Richard,Ella and Jetty were set to leave for abuja,Juliet couldn’t help but cry,Richard promise to visit soon so also did Jetty,I knew my parents were gonna miss them a lot,I mean Ella and Jetty.
We got into the car,Ella and Jetty to the jeep while myself and Richard to Richard’s car,ready to meet the president!
The journey was a very long one,we had to stop at lokoji to refresh our stomach and took photos together before continuing the journey,we got to Abuja Early thought because Jetty and Richard were busy competing on “I know speed better”.
I really thank God who got to abuja safely because at a time I got so scared of the speed.
driving to the presidential villa I was so curious to know how it looks like but Richard refused telling me a thing about it
Me: how does aso rock look like
Richard: you would see things for yourself sweedy
Me: tell me na
Richard: no no.
I kept mute and watch him drive while Jetty followed behind at these time.
the entrance of the Villa is so wide,conveying white paints,all these flowering palm tress alike were planted both sides which adds a pure beauty to it with its green palms
Richard: calm down,you have seen nothing
Me: just brief me a little please
Richard: okay, The Aso Rock presidential villa
encompasses the 400 meter nonolith Aso
Rock and is located within the Three Arms
Zone of the Abuja Metropolis.
Me: so here is the three arms zone of Abuja metropolis?
I got so curious watching around as Richard drove in,every soldier we come across greeted and Richard responded
Me: why don’t you walk with escorts?
Me: so you won’t be kidnapped
Richard: *lol* I can sure protect myself,I don’t want to show around attracting attentions to myself always
Me: okay o if you say so
Richard: look over there,that’s Aso rock villa banquet hall
Me: wow,I love these,those flowers are ever green,those are really strong pillars
Richard: when do you start building
He got to a car garage and parked,we came down,Jetty parked also and came down with Ella
Ella: wow,Jetty call mom or dad,tell them we are at aso rock already and would be home soon
Jetty: okay *am really impressed with the way Jetty respects Ella,am certain he is up to 22 or 23*
Richard: *touching me* hello,didn’t you hear me telling you to follow me inside since
Me: please don’t blame me,am so carried away by the beauty of these house,its indeed big
Richard: over there is One of the meeting rooms,in there is the presidents office,over that side is Aso rock reception for
the Super Eagles
Me: you don’t mean it
Richard: of course I do
Me: I really need to go for presidency election soon
Richard: don’t try it,you would only grow white bears because Nigeria as a whole isn’t ready for female leaders
Me: I can make a difference
Richard: please let’s go in,Jetty and Ella are already in
Me: after you
we entered inside,indeed the inside was something else to write about,if I were really from the bush I would have fainted like 12 times without apology because its the most beautiful house I had ever been
Richard: here is the sitting room,sit there,Jetty where is Ella
Jetty: she has gone to Sharon’s room
Richard: okay,keep Presh busy while I get my parents
Jetty: trust me on that*Richard left us climbing through the heavenly stairs of the house
Me: Jetty,is these part on earth?
Jetty: no o,can’t you see angels standing all over,we are in heaven
Me: you won’t understand *Ella surfaced with a girl of about our age (24) I guess that’s Sharon,she looks extra beautiful,what do you expect,she is swimming in money
Ella: Precious these Sharon
Sharon: hi Precious, oh sorry,hi Richardpresh
Me: *lol,shy* nice meeting you
Sharon: *seating down* I heard so much about you already
Me: really? hope good?
Jetty: come Sharon where is my laptop
Sharon: in my room,go get it
Ella: where is Richard?
Me: he went in to call his dad and mom
Sharon: ooops my mom isn’t around and dad is in meeting
Ella: we wait for him,before leaving
Sharon: before nkor
Me: how is your study?
Sharon: graduated these year
Me: what course?
Me: same course as my brother
Sharon: wow nice,Ella told me you are her course mate
Sharon: what course again?
Ella: you and Richard ate same,always forgetful
Sharon: jealousy,were you Precious that I was asking?
Richard: *climbing down the stairs* Sharon were did mom and dad go to?
Sharon: mom went out but would soon be back,dad is in the meeting room,by six pm he should be out
Richard: *down already,checked his watch* hmmm,after five
Sharon: you guys were f—–g fast
Richard: hey? what’s your problem?
Sharon: am sorry,its a mistake
Richard: don’t let me warn you again about these “f—–g” of a world you enjoy using
Sharon: I said am sorry nah
Ella: what’s wrong with the word?
Richard: everything,I hate that word
Me: please am pressed
Richard: Sharon,show her the rest room
She lead me to the rest room,in there I almost lied down on the floor,it was so wide and beautiful,the kind of smell it has was just too sweet,if not that I suspected cameras to be planted in there I wouldn’t have been able to a sure you that I didn’t lie on the shining ties of the rest room,after I was done using the toilet I came out but got confused to which way to take back to the large seating room,I tried to be sure of one of the ways but my brain failed me so I just rested on the wall stylishly hoping someone comes to pick me soon before I would end up busting into Mr president private room and as God may have it Sharon came back for me
Sharon: you should had come back to the seating room
Me: I thought you were still around so I decided waiting for you
Sharon: okay let’s go.
chai sometimes its best to lie o to prevent unnecessary mockery. on getting to the living room I sat down,just then the president walked in with some armed men leading him,my heart nearly jumped into my mouth on seeing him,not that I haven’t seen him before but I had never thought of standing in his presence.
on seeing the full living room he halt and I jumped to my feet immediately..
Me: gu..gu..good morning his excellence
Mr.President: good evening young woman * I felt embarrassed*
Ella & Co: good evening sir
Mr President: * went to take a seat * hmmm you all finally decided to come back
Ella: your excellence is not like that
Mr.President: Your father told me he sent yourself * Ella * and Jetty to governor James and since then you both decide to start leaving there
Ella: father said such?
Mr President: *to me* seat down young lady,while stand
Me: oh sorry sir * I seem to had been carried away *
Mr President: Jetty what happened
Jetty: nothing actually,just felt bored of the house so decided to look around delta state for a while
Richard: dad,these is Precious,the girl I told you about
Mr.President: oh,I see,what a beauty,son I must confess you have good eyes so young lady introduce yourself
Me: * my heart was beating faster but I decided to calm down myself within me after all he is human* sir am Precious Oyege,am from delta state,a final year student of Economics in the university of Lagos
Mr.Precious: that’s a good course,that means you are Ella’s course mate?
Me: yes sir
Mr.President: well let me not question you further we would get to know much better as time goes on * standing up * children as you can see I am just coming out of the meeting room,I need to rest a little before dinner is served
All: okay sir
Mr.President: what about your mother Sharon?
Sharon: she’s out
Mr.President: okay,and you Richard make sure you take good care of our visitor
Richard: no problem dad * the president climbed the stairs after waving his security men to go back to their duty post,my mind calm a little*
Me: your father must be nice
Richard: not really,politicians are never nice
Jetty: ah Richard see what you are saying of your dad
Richard: no I didn’t say just my dad
Ella: Jetty its 6 pm already let’s start driving home
Sharon: no with for dinner
Ella: abeg we can’t
Ella: home calls
Richard: okay my regards to mom and dad,ama check up on you guys tomorrow
Jetty: sure? these one you have Precious here are you sure you would be able to go out again?
Richard: if I dash you hand eh
Me: *lol* Jetty don’t start,am tired of laughing
Ella: Precious try visit us o but sha we would always come around
Me: I will miss you both
Jetty: sister Sharon keep her company oh
Sharon: sure I will
Soon enough dinner was served and we ate but with the President’s presence and that of the first lady.
Shortly after dinner the first lady came in,Sharon ran to her like a little girl
Sharon: welcome mom
First Lady: where I’d your father
Sharon: inside his room *she walked closer to myself and Richard*
Me: good evening ma
First Lady: event and how are you?
Me: find ma
Richard: mom these precious the girl I told you about
Fitstlady: hmmm I srr,Precious who?
Me: oyege ma
Firstlady: sounds familiar,well relax yourself,Richard can I see you in my room?
Richard: okay mom
she left with Richard while Sharon sat with me,gisting me about how school. now I have gotten to understand where Sharon’s beauty came from,she’s a typical resemblance of her mother the first lady,its really interesting knowing,soon Richard was in the living room looking so angry
Me: what’s wrong?
Sharon: you and I know that’s a lie,did mom say anything to you
First lady: * just then she came out shouting * am talking to you and you are walking away,you walked out on me Richard,you have grown wings I can see
Richard: what you ask of me is impossible mother
Firstlady: oh really,I see,I would handle these my way
Sharon: mom what’s the problem?
Firstlady: keep shut you,birds of same feather * she angrily walked into her room climbing the stairs
Me: Richard what’s the problem * he said nothing*
Sharon: talk na?
Richard: imagine mother asking me to go apologize to Clara and her family after what she did
Sharon: rubbish,is it Clara or Zara abi what’s she called you ain’t gonna be apologizing to any Hausa cow in form of a woman
Me: who is Clara?
Sharon: Richard’s ex,the daughter of the vice president,don’t you know about her?
Me: I do but just hearing her name
Sharon: in fact I must tell father about these* started climbing the stairs*
Richard: what kind of mother is these
Me: don’t say that,if she wants you to apologize then do
Richard: quiet,don’t you ever tell me that okay?
The house became a little hot for the days I spent there,Mr President seem to be so fond of me but the Firstlady was something else,maybe she thought I was advising Richard against apologizing to Clara and her family.
I didn’t wast time relating everything to Ella when she came around but she said I shouldn’t mind the first lady that she’s always like that and she asked me never to advice Richard on apologizing to the isah family but it seem everyday I spent at the villa makes the cloud unleash hotter suns so I told Richard I wanted to go back but he refused,instead he took me to Ella’s house to stay,I was well accepted there by her parents who promised talking sense in to the first lady.
I felt at home again till one day I received a text message from an unknown number threatening to kill me if I don’t leave Richard for her,I got so scared and regretted ever coming to the villa to see Richard’s family.
I showed Ella the text,she deleted it and told me not to worry,that it was Clara threatening but I shouldn’t mind her,I got alarmed,how has she gotten my number.
Since Ella’s dad was out for business Ella insisted we tell her mom once she comes back from work.
then I was just him with Ella and Jetty,I haven’t met with her other brother yet because I learnt he was out of the country.
When Ella’s mum got back we reported to her,she got so angry with Ella for deleting the text
Ella’s Mum: I would have shown it to the president so that if anything happens to her Clara would be held responsible.
by these time I was so scared so I called Richard and informed him of the text but he just assured me it was an Pty threat from a drugger
All these while I never tried informing my parents,not even Michael because I know once my father hear of it the next thing would be I should put a stop to my relationship with Richard and no one can make him turn his mind again not even my mother nor Michael my brother.
I never thought there could be more to everything than I had thought….
My stay in Abuja became so uncomfortable because the threat on my life and everyone dear to me became constant.
I told Richard of my intentions to go back to Delta since I had spent a reason time in abuja and being that school would soon resume,Richard asked me to spend one more week in Abuja but I insisted so he stopped objecting,I decided to inform Ella’s family about my plans to go back and they welcomed it,so i made up my mind to leave abuja in two days time.
Ella’s mom advised me to inform my parents about the happenings which i promised her to tell them but really I had no intentions of letting them know about it.
When i got ready to leave the second day I was really surprised with the gifts Ella’s parents showered me with.
Ella’s Mum: my daughter I wish you wouldn’t leave us
Me: ah mama i wish same but you know the condition of things
Ella’s Mum: yes my daughter,just be careful now,you really have to put your head down now and be careful with people you associate with now,please my daughter avoid night movements now
Me: thank you ma,am really grateful
Ella’s Mum: those wrappers are for you mother,tell her I would be meeting with them soon once i take my leaves at work
Me: okay ma
Ella’s Dad: my dear you have heard what my wife said to you,she has said it all but I would like you to know that as long as Richard still loves and want you in his life and you do feel same,i,myself and me would solidly stand behind you
Me: thank you sir
Ella’s Mum: which one is i,myself and me?
Ella’s Dad: its means me and my family
Ella: mom like seriously Jetty and dad have same funny character
Ella’s Dad: my daughter,let’s not keep you waiting, just like my wife here had said,we would visit your family once the time presents its self but i promise you that before these week runs out I would pay my brother a visit in the villa,Richard is old enough to take decisions for himself
Me: sir,am very grateful,I must confess your family is a very accommodating one,thanks a lot sir
Jetty: Ella call Richard let’s know where he is,its almost 7.
just then Richard entered the sitting room
Richard: greetings here
Ella: Richard we have been waiting
Richard: who are the we,are you precious or you travelling with her!
Ella’s Dad: Richard make sure you come back here once you drop Precious at the park,thanks are getting out of hand and the earlier we start tackling it the better for us all
Richard: okay sir
I got to Delta and shared every gifts given to me in abuja by Ella’s parents including the once Richard give me when he dropped me off at the park. My parents called Ella’s parents to thank them,men must be men,can you imagine what my father said over the phone ” you people shouldn’t have bother of the gifts ” *lol*. the still spoke with the president who was surprised hearing I was in delta already without informing him,he asked me to call him later with my line so he would have my line should he by any means have any reason to call me.
Everything went back to normal in Delta,I never told my parents about the threat of a thing from Clara Richard’s ex,i found it not necessary after all I don’t even know her one on one,I don’t know if she’s black or fair,tall or short or even fat or slim so I really take it to be empty threats though at times when I remember those threats my heart skips.
I wouldn’t want to waste much of your time telling you these life experience of mine bit by bit although every part of it would surely interest you but let’s save time.
school resumed its first semester just a month to Christmas,but before that our results were out and i did pretty well and had no carryover on any of my course,my G.P was so impressive,my mom wanted me to stay till next year before returning to school but my father insisted on my going back
Dad: you should know you have come a long way to start dragging yourself back,you are now in 400 level,play less and read more,prepare yourself,you would return to school next week Monday.
Well I started preparing my things,my father is right after all,you know these lectures,they can be very mean,seeing that students ain’t much in school they might just start giving test anyhow.
I put a call across to Ella and informed her that I would be returning to school on Monday because my father insisted,she also told me she would be returning on Monday too,that her dad had insisted too.
All these while my communication with Richard had become very tight even much more than before,we talk over the phone nearly every hour,even text messaging had become so common among us both.
I travelled down to school to resume classes,before I even got Lagos Ella was already in school,sorry to say but its just the simple truth that I never thought of Jerry and James all these while,I only remembered them on getting into school again.
Ella told me she came on flight and from the way we welcomed each other one could easily tell we missed each other a lot.
Ella and Jerry got back together again after he apologised and we all celebrated our Christmas in school,Richard was present too. funny enough we had three test on the 24th of December.
University of Lagos became Richard’s second home.
February 26th,after Richard returned back to aso rock on the 25th same month because he came on the 12th regarding to th14 February day which is valentine.
it was indeed a great day,it was just myself,Richpresh, Ella,Jerry and James celebrating,we turned the city multiple colours that valentine night. in fact that night I almost forgot I came to Lagos for the sake of school.
On the 15th Richard told me he had related Michael’s job issue to Ella’s dad and as God may have it during the evening of that same day Michael called informing me he has been offered a job in one of the oil company in PH,I was so happy for him.
As i was saying, on the 26th after Richard left on the 25th I received a message from an unknown number,it reads ” you must be very stubborn, I asked you to keep away from Richard but you refused,don’t blame me on the misfortune you have laid down for yourself”
immediately after reading I began sweating unnecessarily, I called Ella to come read the text,she did and got angry with the text,she tried calling the number but it was invalid number,she forwarded the text to her dad and Richard then she took her phone dialing her father’s number,as she was on phone with her dad relating things to him my phone began ringing,it was my dad calling,I took in the call but instead of hearing my dad’s voice it was Juliet’s voice,she was seriously crying over the phone
Juliet: sister Precious,sister Precious
Me: I can hear you Juliet,stop crying please and answer me,talk to me
Juliet: please come home,some unknown gun men just adopted mom and dad
Me: eh? what did you say,adopted who,talk to me,mom and dad kidnapped? how,where,when?
Juliet: just now,please come home
Me: *the sweats increased* just stop crying,I am coming down to delta as soon as possible now..
As soon as I ended the call,all that could escape my mouth was
Me: Ella! Ella! Ella my parents,my parents oh Ella *tears welled down*
Ella: oh my God,who adopted them,why,how did these happen
Me: Ellah ooooh,I don’t know I don’t know,my parents had been kidnapped
Ella: * get her phone back on her ear * dad did you hear that,Precious parents had just been kidnapped * handing the phone over to me * take my dad wants to speak with you
Me: *i collected the phone from her* hello sir
Ella’s Dad: how did these happen
Me: *crying* sir I don’t know,my sister just called to inform me
Ella’s Dad: when did she say these happened
Me: just now sir
Ella’s Dad: stop crying,put yourself together, am assuring you nothing would happen to your parents okay, let me put a cross to the president immediately, an immediate action needs to be taken
Me: thank you sir * I answered all in tears,then hung up *
Ella: i swear to God I will kill Clara,I will kill her and go to jail for it that is if I would actually go to prison
Me: I need to be in delta now * immediately my phone started ringing,it was Richard’s dad,I took in the call” hello sir
Mr.President: I need you to come down to the villa now
Me: sir,my parents had just been kidnapped, I need to be in delta
Mr.President: I know,just come down to abuja immediately, these is regarding to your parents adoption,take the next flight to abuja,I will be waiting for you, I will book you a flight now so get down to the airport
Me: okay sir * hung up *
Ella: what did he say?
Me: I should be in abuja now* phone rings,it was Michael* hello Michael * still in tears *
Michael: what’s happening to your line,I have been calling your line but busy,Juliet just called me that mom and dad has been kidnapped
Me: she told me so too
Michael: stop crying,am on my way to delta now so meet me there
Michael: I will call you later,let me attend to something * hung up *
Ella: oh God,what’s happening
Me: my parents Ella,please nothing should happen to them * phone rings,its Richard *
Richard: hello sweedy,I just saw the text message you forwarded to me
Me: Richard my parents had been kidnapped
Richard: what? by who,why,where, when?
Me: I don’t know *cried out*
Richard: stop crying,don’t worry I would do everything to make sure your parents ain’t harmed
Me: thank you
Richard: don’t thank me,all these are happening because of me,just calm down I am taking the next available flight down to Lagos
Me: its not necessary, your father asked me already to take the next available flight down to abuja
Richard: come quickly then,I will be waiting for…*Ella snatched the phone from me*
Ella: your parents life is in danger and you are busy with call,look I have packed your bag,take it let me drop you off at the airport
I didn’t respond to anything she said again,I just picked up my bag without even a thank you,I was lost in thought of my parents well being,I thought of where they are presently,what are they doing to them now,how is Juliet fairing,who is consoling her,hope Michael is in delta already… all these thought occupied my brain, I didn’t even know when we got to the airport
Ella: Precious we are at the airport already,get down
Me: *that was when I regained consciousness* oh sorry,thanks
Ella: here is your phone
I got down and we entered the airport,Ella helped me check if the president had booked me and all other stuff,I just wasn’t in my sane state of mind to go about it with her.
Soon my flight left Lagos and before 55 minutes we were in Abuja’s airport,I was surprised seeing Richard at the airport awaiting my arrival,he welcomed me and lead me to where he had parked his car,I noticed armed soldiers following us,I guess they were Richard’s security but I never bothered asking,I had enough to think about.
I got into the car and Richard drove off with the securities driving behind us,all Richard said to me in the car I didn’t even hear a single thing,so sorry to say these but I wasn’t even sure some one was talking,all my mind set were based on my parents present condition,I regret not telling them about everything at first,maybe they would have been more careful.
We drove into the villa and I came down,we walked into the living room and met the president standing and looking pissed up,immediately he saw us he signaled the men guiding him to go out,then turned to Richard
Mr.President: Richard,go to my brother,tell him I want to see him immediately,if he is not home,wait till he returns,you must come back here with him
Richard: yes dad,baby am coming *he went off*
I was left with the president
Mr.President: hmmm,Precious,if you look around you would realize we are the only souls in these living room
These story is owned by Michael Luxguy Augustine beware
Me: yes sir
Mr.President: I intentional sent Richard away because I want whatever we discuss here to remain between us and no one else must hear of it,not even Richard
Me: please sir you are scaring me
Mr.President: don’t be scared,read these message *handing his phone over to me,I collected it and read through it*
Mr Williams,President of our time,it is very nice having you in my palms now,I have the parents of your son’s fiancé and the video records of your past and present crimes just waiting to go public once you do otherwise to my instructions. go through your whatsapp messages to watch just but few of you past crime videos,and am assuring you I have more of it then you would ever imagine,here is a quick one,you must send Precious,the so called girlfriend of your son Richard outside the walls of these country and never for her to return, only then would I release her parents and keep your dirty secret safe but if you do anything contrary to my order,first I will kill both parents and distribute these videos to every news house in these country and international and I shouldn’t be telling you what the consequences of these would be. you have 24hours to send her out of these country and never for her to return or await the consequences. my eyes are fixed on you,its either you play safe or risk the game and face the consequences.
After reading I was shivering as I handed back his phone to him,I wanted to ask questions but couldn’t, him his self was looking displeased and so uncomfortable
Mr.President: *in a shallow voice* I won’t force you in your decision but what is your decision in these
Me: *with a heavy heart* sir,I love Richard so much that I don’t know if I can leave a minute without him but I must save my parents lives,they are all I have got in these whole world as parents,they can’t die for what they know not,so I would leave for the safety of my family,if it so pleases God my self and Richard would surely end up together
Mr.President: am touched,I swear with the spirits guiding these country that I will ensure your parents safety,I would take care of them till you return and my son Richard would wait for you,its a golden promise I make you
Me: sir my parents
Mr.President: *walked close,holding up my both hands* election is few months away,I promise you that once am elected and sworn in for a second tenor I would send back for you,I swear these on my staff of office *he let go of my hands,I just couldn’t stop crying*
Me: sir please can I make a last request?
Mr.President: go on
Me: can I have few hours with Richard at lest for the very last time,I promise I won’t tell him anything we have discussed nor make him suspect
Mr.President: as long as you keep your promise you can have the whole night with him
Me: thank you sir
Mr.President: I know you are in your final year in school,I would make make sure you get the best result ever,am working toward that already so before today runs out you would get it *walked back to his seating position,opened his briefcase and brought out a visa* these is your visa,you passport and the rest of your travelling documents are ready,by morning tomo you leave for England till I send back for you,not to worry,a good job awaits you over there.
Richard came back in the evening but without Ella’s dad,he said he is in calabar on a business deal
Mr.President: that’s okay,I need you to take Precious to your room,stay with her and comfort her,by morning tomorrow she would be travelling
Richard: okay dad
He took me to his room trying all he could to comfort me,i learnt Sharon had travelled out with the first lady.
I couldn’t eat,I couldn’t tell Richard I was leaving,the thought of not getting to see my parents again made me cry out loud but Richard couldn’t understand, he only comforted me that my parents would be fine
Me: Richard please make love to me tonight,take my virginity
Richard: why? thought you said till our wedding night?
Me: just do it,that’s the only thing that would make me happy now *I stood up and went completely nude*
Richard held me close,our lips met and our tongues cling,he caress all over my body,laid me on his bed and forced his manhood into me,I felt the sharp pain as he started digging me,I was bleeding already and maybe badly. the feeling ran deep in my head,it was a feeling of both pains and pleasure,my legs were on fire as he pounded me,my Virginia hurts so bad. he removed his d–k and cleaned up the bleeding with tissue paper before he continued,each insert he makes cause me pain but I didn’t stop him.
The next morning Richard didn’t wake up,I tired waking him but he didn’t,the president came into the room and asked me to live him that he would wake only when I must had gone,I was puzzled.
I took my bath,the president handed me all he had promised me including a first class result with distinctions and by 8 i was set to leave with Richard still sleeping in his room.
I left the villa with my bag but the president gave me a new sim and took my old sims.
I got a taxi outside the villa to the airport but got kidnapped on the way by some unknown gun men.
I was blind folded and taken to a building somewhere in abuja,I was made to seat on a chair while I begged for my life
Voice: interesting,the pretty Precious is here,the gold digger
Me: please,what have I done
Voice: have you seen Clara before?
Me: no ma,please spare me
Voice: take off her blind fold
The blind fold was removed,it was an uncompleted building, I saw armed men standing all over,the girl talking to me was backing me,she was smoking,I got real scared and continuously begged for my life,she turned and faced me puffing out smoke from her mouth
Voice: so you don’t know me,amm Clara,the girl you decided to mess around with,but you messed with the wrong girl,you can’t steal my man and go scot free,never
Me: please,spare my life,I didn’t steal Richard from you,I was leaving the country away from Richard
Clara: *lol* I knew that,well I kept to my words,your parents had been released but what about you?
Me: *heart skips* ah please don’t kill me
Clara: kill,kill? hell no,I won’t kill you,I would had done that since if I had wanted to,but I want you to suffer and beg for death,I want to show you what power and money can do in these country,I have sentenced you to life imprisonment without court hearing with hard labour,whoever talks to you would die
Me: ah please,don’t do these to me,allow me live the country please and I would never return
Clara: oh sorry dear,even the president can’t save you now. Tanko take her to the prison were she belongs
They roughly pulled me up leading me out of the building not listening to my plead,am not even sure they saw my tears,those men were wicked to the core
I was locked up and pass out in the cell.
watch out for Season 2 (Return Of Clara)
