Ngozi Lovelyn Book Series
My Wicked Him – Episode 93 by Ngozi Lovelyn
After Ella rushed off the room, Siv wondered what the full content could be.
He saw the shock that displayed on her face and concluded that, the content must be very serious.
He then left to join her in the kitchen, to see if she could somehow open up and tell him what it was all about.
Ella was about dialing the number when Siv entered the kitchen, she then pretended to be checking her phone.
“How is the cooking going on?” he asked
“Fine” she responded, as she sweat heavily “you shouldn’t be in the kitchen. I will be done soon.”
“Stop this, allow the cook handle this” Siv said, requesting she stopped the cooking, because she wasn’t in her right state of mind. It would be her first time of cooking for his mother and Siv wouldn’t want her to make a wrong impression, because she might make mistake with the cooking
“Shhh….it’s ok now…Go and have your bath. You are not looking too good. You are sweating a lot.”
And Ella, realising she won’t be cooking the food decided to do what he said and headed upstairs to bath.
Sylvester still expected her to open up, but she was still hiding it to herself, looking lost to reality.
At the dinning, everybody had gathered for food, but Ella chose to remain in the room.
Sylvester asked her to join the dinning for dinner and she said Ok, that she would be there in a minute, so he left, thinking she would be joining immediately, but she didn’t.
“What about Ella, is she sleeping?” Mrs Vincent asked
“She was bathing, let me see if she is done” he lied, standing up to know what she was still doing in the room
When he entered the room, he met Ella sitting on the bed, looking lost.
“I told you food is served?”
She looked at him and said, “would you leave me if a dirty secret about me gets to the public?”
And Siv moved to her side and said, “something is eating you up, why are you not sharing what ever it is with me? You have me, I am here for you, tell me dear”
“You haven’t answered my question.”
“Except I know what the secret is all about. I’m afraid, I can’t give you a direct answer”
“Alright, um… I don’t have appetite, I don’t feel like eating anything and besides, I don’t want to face your father, his sight scares me”
“My Dad is not in the house. He left for a meeting and will be returning very late in the night, so”
“But I still do not have any appetite” she cut in “do not force me, please”
And Siv decided to let her be.
He returned to the dinning to have his food.
“Where is Ella?”
“She already slept. She was complaining of headaches and took some pain reliever. I guess that was why she dozed off ”
“On empty stomach? Go and wake her to have something”
“She already had something this evening, she will be fine” Siv answered, hiding his worries. He doesn’t want his mother to start worrying about Ella.
