Oluchi was leter ushered in to the visitor’s room.
She then thanked Ofoma for allowing her stay in his house. And he acknowledged.
“If you need anything, don’t hesitate to call me” Ofoma urged
And Oluchi nodded, standing close to him, having the urge to hug and kiss him.
“No Oluchi, it’s not yet time. You have to control yourself otherwise, you will loose your every chances of getting him back” she said, controlling her wild feelings.
Then, Ofoma left the room, closing the door behind him.
“Oh my God! Ofoma is now my dream man. He has changed a lot, to a more mature and organized man. If I had known, I wouldn’t have left him. I thought that changing him would be a dream that will never come to reality. I should have listened to Chidimma’s advice then. Anyway, all things are still put together for my sake. It’s never late for me, my chances of having him back are porous. Imagine the way he was talking to her, he is not even into her. I was so happy watching the sad look on her face” she paused, reminiscing the way Ofoma shoved Chidimma off, asking her to enter the room or leave the house.
“I’m so happy, that my place in his heart is still vacant. So Chidimma, you will be wasting your time by staying here, because the Queen of his heart has returned” she said, smiling happily.
Ofoma was in the living room, reminiscing the good old days. How he was so madly in love with Oluchi.
“I can’t stop loving her, I just can’t stop loving her.” He blurted without knowing that Chidimma was standing behind him.
“You can’t stop loving who?” She asked, expecting an immediate answer.
“Come on Baby! Why are you getting insecure unnecessary. Off course I was talking about you. How can I stop loving a woman who brought so much joy and happiness into my life?” he said, holding her on the waist and asked her to sit beside him.
“So where is she, has she gone?” Chidimma asked, expecting a positive answer
“No, she is in the room, the visitor’s room”
And Chidimma flared up immediately: “She is where? Baby, can’t you see that that woman is gradually having her way? You should have asked her to leave. What relationship does she have with you that would warrant her spend the night here?”
And Ofoma wasn’t happy with her reaction: “Wait a minute, are you telling me that you can’t give a friend shelter in your own house?”
“Yes, a friend you said, but she is no longer a friend, she is an enemy. She made that clear to me today.”
“Enough of this nonsense, Chidimma! Do I need to remind you that this is my house. You don’t have any authority to instruct me on what to do here. She came to your house, you forced her out, I don’t have anything against that because it’s your house, so now, allow me treat my guest the way it pleases me. Is there any problem with that?”
“Baby, I love you so much, I don’t want to loose you. I can’t afford to loose you. Oluchi did not come for good, she came to create problems and separate us. Can’t you understand?” She calmly asked, with a teary eyes.
While while they were still exchanging voices, Oluchi who overheard them decided to use the opportunity to her advantage.
“Chidimma, watch how I will use all your effort to throw me out to my own advantage. I will make Ofoma throw you out instead” She then approached them in the living room and began acting innocent.
“Chidimma my friend, it pained my heart on how you think that I came to ruin your happiness. Was I not the one who kept on calling you, advising you on how to make Ofoma happy so that your relationship will yield positive result? Have you forgotten how I rejoiced massively when broke the news of your engagement to me? Why are you treating me like this? I have always meant well for you?”
While she was saying all those things, Chidimma was shocked looking at her, trying to figure out what she was up to.
And Oluchi continued: “See girlfriend, I will never hate you for this. You will still remain my best friend, and since you don’t want me here, I will leave. Let me go and get my things” She said, releasing fake tears, heading to the visitor’s room, pretending to get her things to leave.
“Yes leave, you are not welcome here.” Chidimma said
“Seriously, you surprise me. I am disappointed looking at you right now. That girl is your best friend, what has come over you? I’m sorry to say this, I am feeling irritated looking at you right now. I want to make it clear to you, Oluchi is free to stay in my house anytime she wants, if you are not comfortable with that, the door is right over there” he said, pointing to the door and then rushed inside to prevent Oluchi from leaving.
