My Wicked Him – Episode 37 by Ngozi Lovelyn
“Have I been dating myself all these while? Jide has never loved me the way I truly deserve. I have never received nor eaten anything from him. I have been the one championing this relationship… Am I making a mistake by releasing this money to him? What if this lady is saying the truth? That means, my life will be practically over if I give him the money. And my business will be ruined. Dear Lord, am I making a mistake? Please, I need your direction.”
She then, brought out her phone from her purse to call Liz.
“Babe, how far, where you dey?”
“I dey with Siv. He took me out for lunch” Liz sounded cheerful
“You are the one treating him?” Ella inquired
“Noo… he is”
“I guess that must be Ella” Siv cut in
“Yes” Liz replied, still having the phone to her ear
“Ok..ask her if she would care for anything”
“Alright……he said I should ask you, if you would like us to get you something”
“No, I’m fine. Call me once you are done”
“Alright” Liz said, as they call ended
“I just hope she didn’t go through with giving that lazy fool the money.”Siv said in his heart, checking his phone, expecting the lady’s call. He couldn’t wait to ask her how the meeting went.
“So tell me, how did you and Ella became friends?” he asked Liz who was enjoying the meal and Liz started narrating her story with Ella.
Ella still remained at that spot, thinking about her life and how Jide never created any fun moment with her, how he never done anything for her in the course of their relationship.
She then decided to reach her work place first, before thinking on the next thing to do. On whether to go ahead with giving him the money or not.
Jide had been waiting for the alert, and even got tired of waiting. He started thinking that, maybe it was network that was delaying it.
Ella was still at her shop, thinking about the next thing to do and then hit an idea.
“It’s going to be better this way. If I’m to release this huge money to him, I must first seal our marriage. We must get married first before anything.”
Jide who was still waiting for the alert didn’t want to confirm from her if she had deposited the money, so that he doesn’t sound desperate and suspicious.
After Ella closed her shop and was returning back to Jide’s house, she stumble on Siv, who said in his heart that, it was becoming a habit and vowed to stop using the supermarket since it was becoming a normal occurrence, jumping on her.
Ella expected him to stop and greet her, like he used to, but Siv didn’t. As he was leaving the mart, Ella ran after him and stopped him with a greet.
“Hello Siv… are we quarreling?”
And Siv made a guessing face, trying to figure out where the question was coming from.
“You are with my friend now and that make us friends too” Ella said
“Oh that….We were never quarreling. I only wanted to respect your space.” Siv said.
And for the first time, Ella was able to look into his face and realising how handsome he looked.
“So friends?” She said, extending a handshake and Siv accepted her as they shook hands, with a smile.
‘Ok, let me return inside, I’m still not done with what I came to buy” Ella said
“And so do i” Siv said, going back inside with her
“But you were leaving?”
“Yes, I wanted to run away. I thought you would burn me with your looks once you spot me.”
And Ella smiled “And why would you think that?”
“I wouldn’t know”
“We are friends now, so I’m not going to be rude again and I’m so sorry for my past behaviours”
“It’s ok, I’m fine”
Ella gave him a smile for accepting her apology.
“Are you done with the things you came to buy?” Siv asked Ella who only had her cream and icecream dropped on the desk
“Yes” she replied
And Jide asked the attendant to add the items to his own.
“You shouldn’t be doing that, I have my money”
“Don’t worry, save it for next time” He replied with a smile
And for the second time, Ella realized how cute he looked when smiling.
