My Wicked Him – Episode 30 by Ngozi Lovelyn
“You should have answered that call” Ella said to Liz, who was still waiting anxiously for Siv to call back.
She continued, “Things are no longer done that way and besides, you shouldn’t be living in the 20th century, when women see men as the ones who should be championing relationships”
10 minutes had passed and he still hadn’t called back.
“What do you suggest, I should call him?” Liz asked
“Yes offcourse…..are you still asking? Call him and tell him you weren’t around when the phone was ringing”
“Ok..but, this proves that, he doesn’t truly want me. He should have called back”
“Stop concluding things. The way he reason, might be different from yours. What if he is thinking that, calling back may sound as a disturbance and prefer you call back, once you see the call? Be smart babe and call back”
And Liz saw some senses in what Ella was saying and then, decided to call back.
But before she could dial the number, Siv’s call invaded her phone.
And out of extreme happiness, she tapped the green button
“Hello Siv I’m so sorry I missed your call I was in the bathroom and my phone was ringing I was done and washing my hands and before I could…..”
And Ella touched her to slow down.
She was anxiously speeding her words, making her sound nervous.
“Slowly” Ella signalled silently
And Liz took a deep breath, silently and then greeted him.
“Good evening, Siv”
And Siv laughed, greeting back. “You were speeding up and I was trying to catch you, and then you slowed down, now I’m panting” Siv said, playfully
And Liz burst into laughter.
Ella made a questioning look, wondering what Siv said that got her into laughing like that.
“So tell me, how are you doing this night?”
“I am fine…. I am good. And what about you?” She inquired
“I am fine. How is your friend?” Siv asked
“She is fine… You want to speak with her?’ Liz asked, as her eyes caught Ella who was waving no, that she doesn’t want to speak with him
“No… Let her be, I have disturbed her enough. So tell me, how is your night going and what did you eat?”
“My friend already spoiled me with food. I ate vegetable yam… So, what about you?” She asked
From her last response, Ella was able to deduce the question Siv asked her.
“Wow, she asked her what she ate, that’s nice of him. Jide never graced me with such a question before”
