My Wicked Him – Episode 7 by Ngozi Lovelyn
Rose still stood at the entrance, trying to spot Jide. Just then, she saw a hand waving at her, coming to her direction.
“Oh…..there you are” she said, heading towards Jide.
When they got close to each other, Jide opened his arms and welcomed her warmly as they exchanged a kiss.
Liz quickly glanced Ella’s face, to know if she saw what just happened, but Ella was calm, looking at them.
“Seriously, I don’t know the kind of charm this guy is using on Ella. Someone who doesn’t even respect her. He doesn’t even consider her feelings. What’s the need of inviting his girlfriend?” Liz wondered and drew Ella to a corner
“Tell me, are you still going ahead with the proposal?”
“Yes…..it’s the main reason I organised this party” Ella replied, sounding calm
“Are you ok?” Liz asked, feeling Ella’s temple to study her temperature “How are you able to remain calm after seeing that display of character? He kissed that babe in the presence of everyone”
“That was nothing. I’m not surprised. It’s the main reason I threw the party, so they can watch their lover boy getting engaged to his woman. And when I finally seize control of his life, I will drive all of them away. Just relax, I got this”
“No Ella, you got nothing. Jide is never accepting you. He is never going to say yes. For a guy who could fathom the mind to invite his other girlfriend to a party that was organised by his other girlfriend, could gladly and boldly reject you, not minding who or what is watching and without his conscience pricking him for it. Please Ella, this is madness, just snap out of it and protect your self esteem”
“You are worrying for nothing my sweetheart. I got him into this relationship and I’m getting him into marrying me as well. Jide is never going to be ready to settle down, so it will be my honour to set him into it. He will never say no, trust me” Ella said, sounding convinced, making Liz understand she had control over Jide’s life
“I want to go home, I’m no longer interested in the party” Liz requested, feeling nervous about the whole situation. She does not want to be present when Ella would be doing the proposing
