My Wicked Him – episode 14 by Ngozi Lovelyn
She collected the microphone, tapped on it, ensuring it was working.
She cleared her throat, drawing the attention of everyone.
Liz was already panicking. She doesn’t have any other choice but to do what Ella requested her to do. She brought out her phone, turning on the camera. She noticed her fingers shaking.
“Oh Lord, can you just give me some super powers to disappear from here? I don’t want to be Ella’s friend again”
Ella had walked in the centre of the party ground, facing the interested guests who were eager to hear what she was about to say.
She first began by acknowledging their presence, thanking them for making out their time, denying themselves the comfort of their beds to grace her boyfriends birthday party.
Rose was already focusing on her, but Jide wasn’t. He was already feeling suffocated and couldn’t wait to leave the event. He never stopped asking himself why Ella had to throw him a birthday party, instead of using the money to get him a nice expensive gift. He started regretting ever agreeing to attend the event.
Ella was still boldly handling the microphone, sharing her love story with Jide. How she met him and the amount of happiness he brought into her life.
Her intention was to impress Jide and make him understand how much he meant to her, thereby giving him more reasons not to turn down her marriage proposal, but she never knew that, Jide was feeling terribly exasperated and about to leave the place.
“Let’s get out of here” Jide said to Rose.
As they stood to leave, Ella called him, scurrying to his direction.
She knelt, facing him.
Jide who was still holding Ella by his left hand, couldn’t stop wrinkling his face, trying to understand what she was upto.
And the guests started screaming if she was trying to propose.
Liz was no longer herself, but she still held onto her phone, videoing the moment.
