was beginning to get worried,…. Her mother

noticed her uneasiness, but decided to ignore her,

… Her phone rang immediately she dropped it on

the table,…. She rushed her phone and picked the

call without checking the caller Id thinking it was

Richard,….

“Hello,…. Angela,….. How’re you? “ A female

voice said.

She was shocked,.. She stared at her phone

screen and sighed seeing the caller Id

”Tope,.. It’s you,….. “ she greeted her calmly.

”Why are you sounding as if you’re not happy to

hear my voice, ….. Were you expecting someone

else’s call? ”

“Not really,. I was sleeping when you called,.. ”

”So, hope that useless guy is no more disturbing

you,…. ”

”Who are you referring to? ”

”Haba, to Richard na,.. Mr loverboy,…. ”

”Tope,….. Do you actually hate Richard this

much?,…. ”

”Errrmmm,… Not really,… You know i’m only

trying to protect you,…. ”

”Then allow me to worry over him,…. Tope pls

my head is aching badly,… I need to go back to

sleep,… I’ll call you back later,…. Bye “ she said

cutting the phone.

She sighed loudly as she dropped the phone on

the bed,….. Her mother strolled into her room

after eavesdropping into her conversation with

her friend,…….

”Angela,… Why the loud sigh? “ her mother asked

her pretending not to know,…

She sighed again.

”mama pls i’m not in the mood to talk to

anybody now,.. “ she told her mother.

She turned to leave the room.

”Ok your highness,… ”

”mama,……. ”

Her mother turned facing her,…

”Pls has Richard called you?,….. “ she asked her

mother looking depressed.

”Nooo,. …. Why will he call me?,… You’ve made

it clear that you dont want him taking advantage

of you,… So the young man have decided to stay

away….. . Or if you were in his shoes would you

have continued calling? “,…… Her mother threw at

her.

”Mama, why are you talking like this?,…. I’m only

concerned because i want to be sure that he’s

ok,…. ”

”There’s no need for that,…. Only his loved ones

should be doing that,…. ”

”Mama why are you making it look like i’m the

bad one here,…, ”

”Angela pls dont just get me angry,…. You

shouldn’t be bothered about Richard’s well being,

you should be thinking of the future of your

baby,….. ”

”Mama,…. Pls stop,….. I cant stand Richard not

calling me or texting me for a day,….. Now

you’re worsening my situation,…. ”

”If you cant stand him not calling you,… Why

cant you call him,…… Or must he be the one to

do the calling?,…… “ her mother said leaving the

room.

Angela la!d down smooching her tummy,. . She

couldn’t take Richard’s thoughts off her mind,….

maid to help take care of the twins and the

house while they’re away in the company,…

Richard la!d down on his bed thinking of Angela,

…. He was lost in his thoughts when his phone

rang,….. He was reluctant to pick it,…. He lazily

stared at the phone only to see it was Angela

calling,…. He blinked and wiped his face to be

sure of the caller,….. She has never called him

since she returned from Lagos,… He has been

the one calling her, ….. He picked the call

instantly,…..

:

:

”good evening Richard,. “ she greeted him

calmly.

”Why are you calling so late at night? ,.. Hope
