My Wicked Him – Episode 48 by Ngozi Lovelyn
Liz was done with prayer. She resumed calling Ella again.
Ella and Siv were still entangled in the moment, when Lizzy’s call interrupted them.
And that was when they realized what they were doing.
They forcefully stepped backward, pulling away from each other’s arms.
Ella stood shy and started apologising, that she was sorry for trapping him into it.
“No it wasn’t your fault, it was my own volition kissing you” Siv said, as he searched his heart and realising that, he never stopped loving Ella.
He only suppressed the feelings.
“And now, it has been rekindled and with Ella seeing me from a different perspective means that, the feeling is going to be doubled” His heart then flashed to Liz “Oh dear, Liz… What have I gotten myself into?” he felt bad, realising he had cheated on Liz
Ella was having the phone on her hand as her heart filled with guilt.
She quickly flashed to the kiss and how she felt about it.
“It felt so good, heavenly, but….but….I shouldn’t have done it. I’m betraying my best friend” her heart still felt heavy and sad as she watched the phone, continued ringing, while still having it on her right hand. She knew her heart will be pierced if she hear Lizzy’s voice
Liz was beginning to worry on why Ella wasn’t answering her calls. She started panicking, thinking that Jide has somehow gotten to her.
She then started calling Siv, to inform him about it.
“It’s Liz” Siv said to Ella, who was looking at him to know who the caller was
“Are you going to answer it?”
“Yes” Siv replied
“Please, don’t tell her you are with me” Ella kindly requested
But Siv didn’t respond to that. He then swiped the green button.
“Siv, I think Ella maybe in trouble. I have been trying to reach her, but she is not responding” Liz said, narrating what was going on between Ella and Jide, and how Jide was threatening her. “I’m so scared, what if he has done something to her?” Liz sounded so worried and scared
And Siv felt even bad, hearing Liz stressed over Ella’s safety.
“She is such a kind and sweet soul and doesn’t deserve to be hurt. How am I going to handle this?”
He then shifted his head towards Ella to know how she was taking the whole thing.
Ella was sitting on the bed, holding her head in guilt.
“I can’t do this to my best friend. I can’t do this to her” she kept feeling contrited
“Atleast answer her call, she is extremely worried” Siv suggested
“How can I face her after what I did?”
“It was only a kiss, just answer her” Siv repeated
And Ella picked the phone and started dialing Liz’s line
“Oh thank goodness. Ella What happened? I was so worried. I was thinking that, Jide has gotten to you”
“I am so sorry my dear, I wasn’t with my phone” she replied as her eyes caught Siv who was heading to the door. She quickly disconnected the call, and rushed him.
