Ngozi Lovelyn Book Series
My Wicked Him – Episode 74 by Ngozi Lovelyn
Ella was having the notion that, Siv may be worried, trying to reach her.
She then gathered the courage to call Liz and requested she sent Siv’s mobile number to her.
On first dial, Siz didn’t pick up.
She then texted her, that she was in trouble, that she needed her help.
The moment Liz read the text, she wondered what it could be.
She yearned to hear her out, to find out what trouble she could be in.
“Could it be that, Siv has dumped her? Could it be?……Wait, has Jide leak the video? There is no way I will find out, except I hear her”
She then, returned the call.
And Ella rushed the phone, sighting her number
“Liz..oh thank God” Ella relieved a sigh that, Liz was able to put their differences aside and called her back
“Why did you call?” Liz asked in straight tone
“Liz, I need your help. Please, don’t read wrong meaning into what I’m about to ask of you. I’m going to owe you a lot if you would grant me this little favour”
And Liz was getting impatient. She expected her to go straight to the point and tell her the reason she had called. Her ear was eager to hear that, she and Siv were having some problems.
“What’s the reason for this call, Ella?”
And Ella realized she was still using the cold harsh words on her, and wondered how she would react if she asked her to send Siv’s number to her.
“It will be so selfish of me and insensitive towards her feelings. I should focus on amending our friendship and not severing it further
“I didn’t call you to start burning my airtime” Liz lashed angrily
“Liz….I called to tell you that, I lost my phone and I’m feeling so hurt about it”
“Is that the only reason you called?’
“Liz naaaa…. Please! Why are you this furious with me? How is any of these my fault? Remember, Siv loved me first before he decided to give you a chance. He never stopped loving me, remember? I’m sorry things happened the way they did and trust me, I tried my best not to allow this happen, but you know how strong feelings can be. You are my best friend and still remain one”
“Are you done?” Liz asked harshly
And Ella sighed and slowly said, yes.
“Take care” Liz wished, ending the call.
After the call ended, she started interpreting everything Ella said and realized she was a little bit right.
“I miss you too, Ella, just that, you really hurt me so much. You shouldn’t have hidden your affair from me. You should have come clean and tell me about it and now….., this pain is definitely going to take time before going away”
And then, she remembered Jide and the video he sent to her.
She then felt the urge to tell her about it.
