34

Tope walked into Richard’s room smiling,……

Richard was happy to see her,… At least she’ll

give him information about his girlfriend,….

“So how’s Angela? “ he asked her.

”Angela is doing good without you in her life,……

As a matter of fact there’s no need asking of

her, she has moved on with her life,….. You need

to move on too,….. “..

He was startled at her response.

”I dont understand what you’re talking about,….

Anyway i’ll be in her village tomorrow to see

her,.. I’ll be discharged in the morning,…. “ he

said with a shaking voice.

Tope glared at him and sighed.

”Stop being a fool, you love the wrong person,

….. Angela has moved on,…. She’s pregnant with

another man’s baby,…. She doesn’t want to have

anything to do with you again,…. As i’m talking

to you, she doesn’t know you exist,……. ”

Richard stood still, he kept gazing at Tope,….. He

quietly climbed down from his bed,… He walked

to the door and opened it,…..

”You’re a wolf in sheep’s clothing,…. You’re the

worst thing that have ever happened to Angela,..

Now get out of this room and dont return again!

“ he barked at her..

“So, you think i’m lying, you better call your

friend and ask him,…. He knows the truth but is

hiding it from you,…. Tomorrow you’ll see things

for yourself,…. ”

Richard pushed her out of his room………. He la!d

down on the bed, and all that Tope told him

flashed at him,….. He dialed Desmond’s number

but it was switched off,…. He called aunty

Beatrice and she picked,……

”Good evening aunty,….. I called you earlier in

the day but your number wasn’t going through,….

”My son,… I had a flat battery, my phone will go

off anytime from now,…. How’re you?,,,,, you

haven’t come to visit Angela,… Are you still

scared of her mother?,… ”

”No ma, i was involved in an accident,. But i’ll

come tomorrow,… ”

”Ewooooooo, my son, i’m sorry,….. Hope it’s not

serious? She asked with a concerned voice.

He was already getting impatient, he needs to

ask her about Angela before her phone goes off

“Aunty, Is Angela pregnant with another man’s

baby? “ he asked softly.

There was silence,….. He glanced at his phone,

the call has disconnected,….

He tried the number again but it was switched

off, he couldn’t sleep at night,…. He tossed on

the bed,…. He remembered the happy times he

had spent with Angela,…

“she loved me so much,…..she worshipped the

ground i walked on,… how can she be pregnant

with another man’s baby,…. Impossible!!!!!!!, it

cant happen,!!! I deserve an explanation from her,

…… But the driver confirmed she was kidnapped,

…. Was she raped by those goons? “ he thought

deeply.

Mrs Johnson’s ringing tone woke her up,….

She was weak to pick the call,.. She checked the

caller Id and it was her secretary,… She checked

the time, it was already 10am, she slept late last

night because she was busy at mother Supreme

Supreme ‘s house,…… she lazily picked the call.

“Madam, pls we need your presence at the office

right now,…. “ came the voice of her secretary

on the phone.

” What is it?,…. Cant you handle the situation?,,, “

she asked getting angry.

”Madam, the account manager has vanished with

the company ‘s money? ” She sat up on the bed.

”What?,,,, who told you about this,…..? “ she

asked getting up from the bed and rushing to the

bathroom.

”Remember he’ s on leave,…. As i’m talking to

you, him and his family have moved to United

States,…. “”

Mrs Johnson nearly had a heart attack but she

held herself,..

She took a deep breath and then continued,….

“How much are we talking about now? “ she

asked with a trembling voice.

”Five hundred million naira!!!!! ”

”What!!!!!!!!!!!!!!,…….. my heart,….. Someone pls

help me,….. She slipped from the bath tub and hit

her head on the tiled floor,…. She lost

consciousness,……

Richard was discharged the next morning,….

He wasn’t happy with Desmond, he didn’t bother

calling him up, he went home in a taxi,……

Desmond arrived minutes after he left and was

informed that his friend had gone home,….. He

was surprised because he was supposed to wait

for him to pick him up,…

He drove to his friend’s house,…. Richard was

already dressed to leave the house when he

rushed into the sitting room..

“Guy what happened, you couldn’t wait for me,….

“ he asked cheerfully.

Richard opened the entrance door and they

walked to the garage,…

”i need to see Angela and confirm somethings “

was all he managed to say,…

”No problem, but i’ll drive you,..You’re still not fit

to drive,.. ”

He looked at Desmond and waved at him to open

the door to his car.

Desmond drove him to Ogwa shi ukwu,….. Their

drive was quiet,…. Desmond was suspicious of

his friend,… He avoided him asking him questions

he wont be able to answer,..
