THE WRONG NUMBER
Tunde called the next day and this time I proudly picked the call.
“What do you want from me again, at least you’ve accomplished your blackmail mission , or you want to find out how things turned out?”
“Smart girl! So you went ahead to tell him before I do right”
“Well Tunde the good news is that, God did not allow your plans to work, he forgave me”
“Keep on deceiving yourself, you think he forgave you right, he will soon shock you, is he not a man? ”
“Of course he’s not an amaphrodite, he’s a man, an honorable one for that matter, he is not like you, idiot ” I spat.
“Well, I know he’ll soon drop your fucking ass, I’ll be waiting”
“I pray you won’t die waiting, anyways all the best and don’t you dare call my line again, if you do, I’ll make sure I have you arrested. Good day” I said and hang up on him.
Lizzy and I are very close now, the wedding preparations brought us closer, she involved me in most of her wedding plans, despite my busy schedules I make sure I find time to attend to her whenever she needs me.
Paul was very happy when he realized how close I was to Lizzy, I don’t know why but he loved it whenever he hears I’m with her. Lizzy is a very sweet person too, so I love been around her.
I now spend most of my weekends with her and my baby has started complaining because we hardly see each other except when the four of us are hanging out together.
I later came up with a plan, I go to his office on Fridays after school and I go to Lizzy’s place on Saturdays because we spend most time in Eko idumota just to get more aso ebi since it’s on a higher demand.
2weeks to the wedding, Lizzy called and told me she wants to do some personal shopping, that I should please assist her. We went to the shopping mall and shopped. She suggested we stop by a restaurant and eat, since we are tired and famished.
We settled down and started eating. Someone called her, she received the call and after she ended the call, I noticed she was quiet and looked sad at the same time.
“Lizzy, what’s wrong, why the sudden mood swing?”
“It’s nothing” she gave me a fake smile.
“Something is wrong, who called?”
“You shouldn’t be sad when you receive a call from your mum, so tell me what’s going on exactly”
“I’m sorry but, it’s something about me I don’t want to talk about”
“I hope it’s not a secret?”
“It is, I know we are now friends but can I trust you?”
“Yes you can, your secret is safe with me” I assured her.
“I have a son, I had him when I was in secondary school”
“Having a Child is not a disease, so why are you feeling bad about it…Hold on Paul did not know about it?”
“Yes, he doesn’t”
“Jesus…..Christ! and you are getting married to him in two weeks time!”
