My Wicked Him – Episode 31 by Ngozi Lovelyn
“So tell me more about yourself, both your likes and dislikes, so I can know what I’m getting into…”
As Liz opened mouth to speak, Siv cut in
“Wait, are you the type who pour men hot water when they are angry?”
And Liz smiled and asked, “And what if I say yes, that I pour men hot water?”
“Then I will always put my anti hot water suit on”
And Liz burst into deeper laughter. She enjoyed Siv’s humorous attitude and was enjoying him more. She continued laughing as tears started dropping from her eyes. Ella couldn’t help but joined suit, without even knowing the reason for the laughter, but wasn’t too audible for Siv to notice.
Liz continued chatting with Siv on the phone, while Ella returned to check on Jide, to know how he was doing. But was shattered, when she overheard Jide’s call conversation.
She overheard him, telling Rose that he loved and missed her.
Jide didn’t hear her walk in, he thought he was still with her friend.
“Common Rose, you know I love you a lot, why sounding this way? Stop it please” he added
And Ella who couldn’t stand the call again barge in, giving him a furious look.
“You know what babe, I will call you back later” he ended the call, after noticing Ella in the room. He gently dropped his phone, lying on the bed, face up, maintaining silence.
Ella expected him to explain, but he didn’t. He maintained mute, waiting for Ella to speak first, so he can know the angle to come in, and salvage the situation. He knew he won’t be needing Ella for long, but he still needed her to achieving some purposes.
“Jide, is there something you need to tell me?”
“Who was that on the phone?”
“Rose, the one you already knew” He replied casually, without looking guilty
“You said you love her, does that mean, you lied to me? You deceived me?” Ella got emotional
And Jide rushed her, with intention of calming her down, making her believe that, what she heard wasn’t real.
“See, I have been together with Rose, for a very long time, even before I met you. I also promised her marriage. The whole proposal stuff came as a shock . And it won’t be easy breaking up with her, just like that. Just give me some time, to finally cut the thread that holds us.”
“You mean, you love only me?” Ella asked, amidst teary eyes
“Offcourse, you are the only one for me. I love only you, Ella”
“Then, let’s get married right away. No need delaying”
“Come on Darling, you know I’m not buoyant enough at the moment. I can’t cater for a wedding now”
“I’m not asking you to spend anything. Let everything be on me. I love you more than life it self, I don’t mind if I spend my last card to have our love secured forever. Allow me take care of this.”
“And what will that make me? A weakling, who can’t cater for his own wedding? In my village, it’s a man who marries a woman and not the other way round. I have this deal I need to make, and I will be needing 5million for it. I’m planning of kicking off the wedding, once everything settles. Just that, luck has not been on my side. No one has agreed to help me” Jide continued explaining how much he needed to pursue the deal, carefully studying Ella’s face, to make sure she was buying his emotions, in order to make it easier for her to give her such amount
“Do you perhaps have that kind of money? Listen, I will refund every cent with interest, once it clicks”
“It’s not about paying back, 5.5m is the only money I have in my account. I will be totally empty, if I give it to you”
“You won’t be empty my love, you have me. We are now one and will soon be married. Consider it the money you are giving to yourself, because I’m your husband, and like I said, we are one”
And Ella took a deep breath and said she will think about it.
As she was about stepping out of the room, Jide called her..
“You won’t regret this, I promise you. I won’t fail you my love” Jide sounded so convincing and Ella smiled back at him, leaving the room.
She returned to Liz and was marveled to meet her still chatting with Siv over the phone. She looked so happy and relaxed.
