Heat Of Love, Lies And Divorce – Episode 7

‘I hate Mondays….’ She groaned and stretched her full length. She’d expected him to call her but he hadn’t. She panicked as the thought of him losing interest in her filled her mind. What if she’d pushed him away by telling him she had been married?

‘I hope not…’ she sighed and checked the time….close to her lunch time…she quickly brought out the complementary card he’d given to her and stared hard at it…

‘should I call him? Or should I call him not’? she rehearsed in her mind over again…

What if she seemed too desperate by calling Omale, he was the guy, she wasn’t some egotistical feminist, she was a very traditional person and she expected the man to pursue her.

But she couldn’t help but think about him the whole day, all calls or text messages that she received had been taken in a rush as she hoped one of them happened to be his.’

Without hesitation, she dialed the number on the card and waited patiently for his response, the phone rang once…

Was he busy? What if he were to be in surgery?

She cut the call and almost slapped herself for being so stupid…what was she thinking calling a doctor like that?

She would definitely pass as desperate before him.

Her phone buzzed loudly as she dropped it on the table, the caller identity brought thrills running down her spine…he was calling her back!

‘hello…good afternoon, sorry I called you at this time…I was just…’ she paused as the female voice cut her short…who was that?

‘Omale isn’t around…he’s busy…whom should I say called’? June rolled her eyes angrily, she knew who was on the phone , the woman she despised already…who did she think she was?

‘is that June’? Edima was amazed, what would she be doing with Omale’s phone…

‘yes, and you are’? June asked…

‘Edima Bassey from church…don’t you remember the lady you met from church yesterday, I sat beside Omale…’? she tried being friendly…

‘I remember you quite well, why don’t you stay away from Omale’? June quickly glanced around his office, she’d come to deliver some files, coincidentally she’d found his phone ringing loudly while he’d gone to attend to an emergency.

This was all she’d needed, all she’d prayed for. She would put Edima in her place.

‘Excuse me’? Edima wondered why June sounded so harsh, from the time she’d met the lady she’d struck her as someone who was unfriendly….

But she didn’t expect it ot reach this magnitude …

‘you heard me ma’m…don’t allow Omale to deceive you….he has a woman in his life and I’m trying to save you from heartbreak, so you better take my advice darling….why do you think he wasn’t in a hurry to call you back’?

Edima was silent as pain stung her throat but she swallowed it…

‘I thought so too, you should be thanking me, don’t call this line again.’ June ended the call and deleted Edima’s number from the mobile phone.

‘This can’t be happening…’ Edima’s voice shook…

What had she gotten herself into? She now understood why he hadn’t called her the night before…she felt foolish and highly embarrassed.

Without thinking she dialed Zee.

‘Zainab I’m in a mess…can we talk now’? she rushed forward and locked her office…

‘sure honey, what’s wrong’? she could feel the hurt in Edima’s voice…she was the most fragile of all of them…

‘remember that  guy I told you I met at the seminar and I liked him? I met him in church yesterday and we exchanged numbers…’ she swallowed…

‘wow, that’s a good thing, isn’t it?’ Zee wondered where her friend’s story led

‘yes, so I decided to give him a call today…and a lady picked, he introduced me as his friend…she really embarrassed me and said very mean things to me…I feel so hurt Zee…and I really liked this guy, though I don’t know him much…but he really did  seem nice…and was my first shot at dating after a long while…I don’t know what to do…’ tears had already found their way down her cheeks…

‘calm down Edima it’s not the end of the world…maybe this guy wasn’t meant for you…maybe God has other plans for you…just forget him…why would a woman even pick his call’ Zainab hissed angrily what annoyed her greatly were men who couldn’t keep their feet at a place…

‘I’ll try, I just felt humiliated…so what should I do next…I can’t seem to take my mind off of him….’ She blurted out in frustration….

‘just forget him Edima…I’ll call you later in the day…be patient with yourself, when it’s the right time, you’ll fall in love…’ Zee advised…

‘Thank you Zainab, I don’t know how you do it, but you’re magic, I always feel better after talking with you…’ she smiled ruefully and ended the call…

She’d never received such embarrassment in her whole life….she would never call him again…angrily she picked up the complementary car and shredded it into pieces…

‘There we go…’ she quickly dropped them in her dustbin.

‘Do you think we should continue with this? I feel…bad…you know Zainab is just a very good person and I don’t ever want to hurt her….’ She’d sat up after they’d had a shower together

‘I love you very much…am very attracted to you that’s what matters and I believe you feel the same way for me….so we just keep exploring and enjoying all this…Zee would never find out except you tell her…’ Abdul shifted closer to her…

‘Do you really mean it when you say you love me’? Lola gazed upon him, she yearend for love, she yearned to be adored …to be treated as special…that’s all what she needed after Femi had issued her a divorce…

‘hey, I mean it….come here…’ she snuggled close to him and he hugged her tightly…

‘promise me you’ll handle this well, you need to get back to your friends or they’ll know something is up with you…you don’t want that do you’? he pressed his lips to her hair…

‘okay, I promise to stay calm…I like you Abdul…’ she kissed him back…

Lola smiled as the coolness of the water washed all her pain away, it was a brand new day and she felt like a new creature, a butterfly that had just popped out of its cocoon…she was free and she’ll soar the white skies, there was no stopping her…

She had to go see Zainab and talk to the other girls, she still contemplated whether  she would tell them about the divorce.
