My Wicked Him – Episode 88 by Ngozi Lovelyn
“I still remembered how we used to drag who would be getting married first”
And Liz picked the statement immediately, wondering where it was coming from.
“Hello, can you hear me?’ Ella asked, noticing she was quiet
“Yes, go on, I can hear you”
“Ok. Liz, for how long are we going to continue like this? For how long?”
“Did you call me to ask how long I’m going to continue sucking over your betrayal?”
And Ella hummed
“Liz, what do you want? Just tell me, I’m ready to do it. I’m ready to do anything to have you back as my friend”
“It’s simple. You can start by breaking up with Sylvester”
And Ella chuckled “You know that’s not going to be possible my dear. Siv asked me to marry him. We are getting married”
And Liz had her hurtful feelings which she she had been struggling to forget, renewed again.
She started feeling the whole betrayal all over again.
“Why do you like rubbing salt on my wounds? I have been struggling to forget your betrayal and you keep looking for a way to remind me of what I lost”
“I’m sorry Liz, I said it out of proportion. I was excited and needed to hear my friend’s voice and also share my goodnews with her”
“Which means, you are calling to ask me to be your maid of honour?”
“Yes, yes my dear. You figured it out.”
“Then, keep dreaming” she hissed and ended the call
And Ella then realized that, there was no hope fo their friendship.
“Goodbye Liz, It’s now obvious there is nothing between us again. There is nothing for us, so it’s better I stay on my lane” she said, determining never to call Liz again
Liz couldn’t contain the bitterness she was feeling.
She was mad, almost smashing her phone, saying that, it could have been her in that position. That being Sylvester’s wife was a position Ella snatched from her.
She started wishing for something that would be scattering the union.
Just then, Jide came to her mind.
She picked her phone immediately and called him.
“You are there, goofing around and Ella is about getting married to one of the successful bachelor in this town”
“Tell me more about it”
“I don’t know anything. You should be a man and do something. How could you sit and watch another man snatch your girlfriend from you? What kind of a man are you?” Liz fired, burning with anger and hatred.
“Easy there. Who told you I’m not heating something up? I have my plans and waiting for the right time to strike. Though, I wanted to hit her with a revenge, but I don’t think that will be necessary again. I’m going to make Ella leave that bastard and return to me. I miss her and I think she is a good girl. I need her back, I miss her”
“Please, do whatever you can to prevent that marriage from happening. Ella can’t have that man. Be man enough please” she incited, ending the call
