“I don’t understand Chucks, can you explain better?” Chidimma asked
“You see, there is this friend of mine who started dealing in exclusive wedding gowns, so he needs a lady who has a nice figure who can fit in comfortably on one of his gowns. He wants to use the person for the face of his company. So I recommended you for him. I am sure your beautiful face and well curved figure will do justice to that”
And Chidimma smiled calmly and said: “Thank you so much for thinking so highly of me, but I thought models are the ones who do such things and you know I’m not a model and besides, I don’t even have a flat tummy, I don’t see how the gown will fit in perfectly on my body.”
“You don’t have to worry about anything, waist trimmer can help you with that.”
“OK, which day is it going to take place?” She asked
And Chucks told him.
“Is that not the same day Ofoma will be getting married to Oluchi?” She asked feeling sad
“Yes, but you will go there tomorrow to pick your own size, then the photoshoot will take place on that same day”
“Chucks, am I not supposed to be feeling sad right now? That day is supposed to be my day, I’m the one who is supposed to be getting married to him and not Oluchi. I wonder how he could forget so soon. After I did for him, he has the strong heart to shove me away to the curb.”
“I have told you to forget about him, just concentrate on this photoshoot. Let it keep you happy, its an opportunity to cover a fashion magazine. Just see it from the bright side, who knows, you might start receiving wonderful opportunities or contracts after it. Just don’t say no, because I have told this my friend so much about you, I don’t want to feel disappointed and look like a fool in his eyes”
“Hmm, Chucks, the idea is good just that it coincided with the day of Ofoma’s wedding and I might not look happy that day, my sad look will destroy the beauty of the picture”
“It doesn’t matter, your face is not all that matters, it’s just the fitting of the cloth.”
“I don’t know what to say to you now Chucks, I just don’t know what to say. I can’t give you my answer yet, pls”
“Come on Chi, just say yes, I promise you, you will be happy for the rest of your life that you accepted this opportunity”
“I will have to think about it, first. I can’t give you any answer now”
“Come on Chidimma”
“No Chucks, you can’t force me to say anything now”
“Alright, I will give you time to think about it, but know one thing. This could be your opportunity to greater things… Just think about it” Chucks said, ending the call.
After they ended the call, Chidimma dropped her phone on the bed and began thinking over what Chucks proposed.
“I don’t think I can do it Chucks, I just don’t think so. It’s better I leave town and switch off my phone until all these things are over. No matter how hard I try, I keep loving Ofoma the more. How can I kill this feelings? Can somebody tell me how? I better travel out of town to ease myself from worries before I die of heart break” she said to herself, began making plans to travel.
Chucks who finished talking to Chidimma on the phone called Ofoma, telling him what they discussed.
“But from the way she sounded, do you think she will accept to do it?” Ofoma asked
“Hmm, I can’t tell anything for now until I hear from her again”
“Chucks, you know how Chidimma is, she is not the type to feel excited about such things. All she wants is love and nothing more. We should have come up with a better idea to get her to wear that wedding gown”
“Anyway, let’s not conclude on anything until we hear from her. But there is something I’m suggesting. Don’t you think that she might start receiving calls from her cousins about the wedding? I mean, her parents and siblings are already distributing the wedding cards, don’t you think that she might get a call from someone? Though, her parents have things under control, but someone somehow might call her?”
“You are right, Chucks. So what do we do then?”
“Let’s get some boys to snatch her phone” Chucks suggested
“And she will still do a welcome pack. I’m thinking it’s better we tell her about our plans.”
“Hmm, you know how women behave, she might reveal the secret to Oluchi out of taunt if she feel provoked by her”
“But we don’t have any option” Ofoma said
“So you think it’s wise we tell her?” Chucks asked
“Yes, let’s tell her. I know Chidimma, she can’t say yes to that our wedding gown proposal, so it’s better we tell her the truth”
“No Ofoma, I said No. I want it to be a surprise package for her. Let’s keep her in the dark, I promise you, she will be smashed in joy and extreme happiness”
“It’s only if she did not find out before then.” Ofoma said
“See, everything is still under control. You know that the Priest have accepted to conduct the wedding by 8 a.m, so any decoration personnel who knows what he is doing can start his work by that time and finish it before 12. And the cook, that one will be taking care off elsewhere and not in her father’s compound. So, even if she hears anything and rush down to her village, she won’t see anything. No evidence will be shown to her that a wedding will be taking place in her compound. And if she asks her parents, they will give her a negative answer. The decoration will start while she is in the church. So, let’s do it this way, don’t tell her anything now, trust me”
“Hmm, OK… Let’s do it your way, just that I can’t wait to be with my woman again. I have missed her so much. Once we are married, I’m taking her straight to a special place for our Honeymoon, so that Oluchi will not have her way to hurting her. I saw the force she came with and knew immediately that she was ready to do anything to have me back, even if it demands harming Chidimma, that was why I did what I did to save my woman. But that Oluchi girl sef, what is she thinking? That I will leave a treasured girl like Chidimma for her?… Seriously, some people breath through their anus…. And I will also be paying her back for all she did to me. It’s my own type of revenge, and I’m happy I’m doing it.”
“Now you are talking, so you are agreeing with me on not telling her anything yet?” Chucks asked
“Good! This revenge will be so interesting, I swear.” Chucks said, smiling.
