Heat Of Love, Lies And Divorce – Episode 13
It had been a week and she hadn’t called him, what bothered him was the mysterious way her number vanished from his phone, he was quite sure he’d saved it.
Maybe June was right, maybe he was forcing himself on her. He sighed, took off his lab coat and settled on the chair.
‘Edima Bassey’ though his heart was filled with doubts, he still believed in her…he still thought about her…she was a total stranger yet he felt he’d known much about her all his life…
‘hello doctor…I bought you lunch….’ June stormed into his office excitedly…
‘hello, I don’t think I feel like having anything….’ Omale replied and dropped his phone angrily….
‘what’s pissing you off’? June dropped the bags she carried and walked closer to him, she knew this man so well, she knew what made him happy and what made him sad…
‘she hasn’t called me June…I don’t know…and I’ve searched for her number all day…I cannot seem to find it…I don’t know what to do…’ he replied…
‘I don’t mean to offend you but forget that lady, she isn’t ready for you…she would’ve called you back if she had any iota of interest in you…’ June’s words made him feel worse….what if she was already in a relationship? What if he was building a castle in the air?
‘I really liked her…’ his words were true …
‘nice, my birthday comes up soon….you should take me for shopping or movies or a picnic…’ She was quite excited, this would give her more time to spend with Omale…but it still hurt her that he was blind to her love for him…
‘yeaa, I haven’t forgotten…’ Omale watched her carefully, it was a bit strange, why would she want to spend time with him when she had a fiancé….
‘he broke up with me…’ she blurted out as if reading his thoughts…
‘yes, I prefer we don’t talk about it….’ June lied….how could she tell Omale the truth, that she had never had any boyfriend? That she’d waited for him all this while and he was blind to her charms…
‘I’ll respect that June….’ He nodded.
‘you know what I’m thinking? Remember the pastor’s wife knew her and the late husband….maybe I should go over there and ask for her address …’ Omale couldn’t get her out of his mind….
‘don’t tell me you’re stuck on someone who doesn’t feel the same…I wouldn’t advise you to do that…it’s not appropriate….just forget her and move on with your life…there are other pretty women out there…you just have to look…’ she gestured with her hands…
‘I guess it’s me and you then…like old times….when shall we ever find love June’? he walked towards the window…
‘Soon Omale, soon….’ She wished he could look at her the way he’d Edima. Why couldn’t his eyes darken with desire when he gazed upon her?

‘SLY FOUND OUT I KISSED BEN AND HE LEFT THE HOUSE, I’VE BEEN TRYING TO REACH HIM BUT HE WOULDN’T PICK UP HIS PHONE… I’M LOST ZEE, WHAT SHOULD I DO?’ The text she’d received from her friend had startled her.
The turnout of things didn’t favor Amaka, this was going to be a difficult one. What if Sly had other notions inside his head? What if he also thought Amaka had cheated on him with his cousin?
‘Babe, you’re up early’ Abdul rolled to her side of the bed and kissed her gently.
‘Yes, I’m pondering on something’ She kissed him back
‘How about we hang out today? Watch a movie, eat out?’ He nuzzled her ear, he had to stay calm, so many things went through his mind.
‘Let’s eat out, you know I am not a fan of movies’ she smiled, her husband was such a romantic man.
‘That’s so sweet of you. When last did you hear from Lola?’ He was being cunning. her break-up with him the week before hit him hard and he lived in fear. What if she confessed to his wife? Now she was back with Femi anything could happen. Maybe it was time for him to act on his threats.
‘Strangely, she hasn’t called me for a week now, I should probably call her after I fix breakfast.’ She wondered what went on with her friend, had she decided to stay with Femi?
‘Okay, just asking… Let me use the bathroom.’ He excused himself.
‘What is wrong with this girl?’ He forced his eyes shut, why had Farida disturbed his line for a full week? Didn’t she understand something as simple as ‘it is over between us’? He couldn’t have anyone bring ruin to his marriage.
‘Can I help you? I thought we were clear on this? Don’t you call me or pay my family a visit.’ She irritated him.
‘Abdul, the changes in my body are evident, you need to do something before my father finds out or I am dead,’ she pleaded with him.
‘Do what exactly? I’ve told you to get rid of what you have inside you, I can never be its father. I don’t want you, just leave me be.’
‘It’s not that easy, do you want to do this or not? Let me have your final answer…’ She pressed.
‘Go to hell Farida!’ He ended the call and turned on the water. He needed to think, he needed to clear his head about Lola, what would he do to her? She couldn’t humiliate him that way and go scot free.
He’d told her he had gone for a meeting but on his return he had a strange perfume on him and it baffled her the more, but she couldn’t confront him.
Her fears heightened as the day passed, Abdul was hiding something from her… In the twinkle of an eye, everything had changed.
‘YOU SHOULD MEET UP WITH LOLA AND EDIMA, TELL THEM ABOUT THIS AND LISTEN TO THEIR ADVICE, BUT IF I WERE YOU, I WOULD PRAY REALLY HARD AND KEEP CALLING SLY, I WOULDN’T ADVISE YOU TO BRING BEN TO THIS, THOUGH HE INITITIATED THE KISS, KEEP HIM OUT OF IT BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNEW HIS INTENTIONS FROM THE BEGINNING. I’M GOING ON THIS MAD DATE WITH ABDUL, GOING TO MISS YOU GIRLS…LV YA.’ She texted Amy back, feeling pain for the young woman…
‘You’re back,’ she jerked up.
‘Yes, I’m back. So where were we’? he winked and crawled to where she sat on the bed.
