Ngozi Lovelyn Book Series
My Wicked Him – Episode 78 by Ngozi Lovelyn
Ella had no option but to remain in the house, waiting for Mr Vincent to arrive.
Time was going down and she was becoming worried.
Food was served and she was asked to join the dining.
Siv’s mother was seated as well and requested she joined them, but Ella politely declined.
She had no appetite. She was still to figure out why she was been restricted from leaving the house.
“Ella, you know my mom won’t eat until you join the table” Siv said, walking towards her, to direct her to the table
“But I don’t feel like eating anything” Ella said, but had a quick thought, that she was doing bad by denying the mother’s request.
And she said Ok and joined them in the dinning.
At the dinning, she was sitting opposite Siv who was making eye contacts with her.
But looking at him, she couldn’t interpret what was going on in his mind.
But looking at the mother, she was having this feeling that, everything was alright. But the energy emanating from Siv, was sending a different signal.
“God, why am I getting mixed feelings about all these? The whole atmosphere of this place is very strange. What is going on? And looking at the time, it’s becoming obvious that, I’m not leaving this night” she then remembered what Siv said about sleeping in his room. She then fixed a look on him, to see if she could understand something, but no clue came forth.
And Siv was busy enjoying his meal
Seeing the silence that was cooling on the table, Mrs Vincent decided to break it.
“What’s your favourite food, Ella?”
“Unripe plantain porridge”
“Yes ma, the one they cook with groundnut oil” she replied as her skin radiated with the light illuminating across the dinning.
Mrs Vincent was crossing eyes contact, to see her son’s reactions towards Ella, on whether he was taking notice of her beauty. But he was focusing on the food.
They were still eating when Mr Vincent and Ignatius arrived.
On sighting him, she released a smile for seeing someone she knew.
She was surprised to see him there.
In order to keep up with their game, Ignatius rushed to her direction and gave her a quick peck on the cheek.
Before Ella could pull her head backward, in order to understand what he was about to do, he already planted a peck on her cheek.
She gave him a surprised look, using her left hand to wipe the peck.
She took a quick glance on Siv to check if he saw what just happened.
