My Wicked Him – Episode 16 by Ngozi Lovelyn
All eyes were on them, cheering, waiting for Jide to say yes and accept the ring.
Siv was still shocked, wondering what inspired Ella into believing that, Jide would accept the ring.
He started feeling for her, making up his mind to be there for her throughout her healing process.
“She is going to be pretty devastated and broken, but I’m going to be there for her, all through. This guy doesn’t worth her. She deserves someone better. I’m going to make her realise that. This I promise” He assured in his heart, understanding how much his heart was feeling for Ella. He then, kept waiting for Jide to boldly say “no” and walk away
Jide was still trying to figure out what Ella was doing.
“What’s the ring for? Why is it in the box, where is the car key?” he asked, firing her a serious questioning look
Ella then knelt and said “Jide my love, can you do me the honour by being my crown for the rest of my life? Accept this ring and make me your wife”
Jide’s widened eyes flashed serious shock and anger, as he remained mute, glowering at Ella who was smiling softly, confidently maintaining her one knee on the ground, asking him to be his crown.
Rose scoffed, smirking intently annoying, but Ella ignored her. She focused her eyes on Jide and doesn’t want to shift it a bit.
And she continued, “Jide my heart, will you marry me?”
Jide stood still, appearing discombobulated and angry at same time.
And there was grave silence, as all eyes focused on them, waiting to hear Jide’s response.
Liz couldn’t take it anymore as her heart continued pounding fast. But she had no choice but to continue being there for her friend.
“Oh Lord, I pray she takes this in good fate and not destroying herself in the process of trying to heal from the heart break” Liz prayed silently, believing that, Jide would definitely say no to her best friend
