My Wicked Him – Episode 32 by Ngozi Lovelyn
She then signalled her to end the call, that she had something important to discuss with her.
But Liz didn’t heed to that request. She removed her face from Ella, who was distracting her from the beautiful conversation she was having with Siv.
Ella who could no longer wait for her to finish, scurried to her and screamed into the phone, “Hello Siv, she will call you back later, right now, I need my friend” she then snatched the phone right from Liz’s ear
“Ella?” Liz called, wondering what could be so important
“I need help” Ella said
“Yea…you always need help with Jide’s continual presence in your life” Liz replied, waiting to hear the latest issue that sprang up
“Can you lend me 2.5million naira?”
And Liz shrunk her face, trying to understand what she needed the money for.
Ella continued “Jide needs 5million naira, and I don’t want to empty my account, because I really don’t want anything that would delay the wedding. If you can give me 2.5, I will then complete the rest and give to him. This way, I can still have enough to plan for the wedding.”
And Liz couldn’t understand the type of person Ella was.
“You mean, Jide won’t be spending a dime for his own wedding?” Liz struck a serious questioning look
“He doesn’t have…but that doesn’t mean he won’t, if he has.” Ella replied, sharply
“I have been your friend for ages, but to tell you the truth, I don’t know you anymore. Please, can I have my phone back?”
“Ah ah.. it’s like you didn’t hear a word I just said?”
“Ella, I heard you, loud and clear, but you see, I don’t have that kind of money”
“No Liz, don’t do this. You have enough. Remember your brother wired….”
And Liz cut in “Yes, he did, he wired huge sum of money to me, but it’s strictly for my business….I’m never wasting it on your boyfriend”
“My husband” Ella retorted
“Whatever… Please, my phone”
But Ella remained hesitant to handing the phone back to her
“Listen Ella, anything you want to do with Jide should be solely on you and please, don’t get me involved. I don’t want to be a part of it. That guy doesn’t have any atom of love for you, can’t you get it?”
“Watch your mouth please” Ella snapped
“No problem…. hand me back my phone, please” Liz requested, extending her hand to collect the phone
And Ella who noticed that, Liz wasn’t ready to help, decided to return the phone to her.
“You mean I can’t change your mind?” Ella asked further
“Don’t stress it…..” Liz replied
Ella snatched the phone from Liz but forgot to disconnect it. Siv overheard their entire discussion and dwelled mystified.
“Ella’s love is unselfish, pure, but sad she is wasting that precious gift on someone who doesn’t regard her as anything” He sighed deeply, disconnecting the call…
