To Love Again (Episode 13)




“What do you mean Dan? Why did you let Laura stay here? After all she did? You forgive her like that? Mom and Dad left in anger because they could not bear to stay in the same house with that witch. Dan Dan what about Mitchell? What will happen to her now? Did you just lead her on? I blame myself for this. I shouldn’t have encouraged her.”

“Please Trisha calm down. Please . It’s not what it seems. Didn’t you listen to her story. I just wanted to help her and finally annul our marriage. We weren’t actually divorced. She just left and I can’t move my relationship with Mitch forward. be patient with me. I’ll fix this soon and talk to Mitch for me too. Please.”



Laura was on the phone

“Sweetheart, the first step is complete. He bought my story. I have already gotten into the house everything else is simple. It’s up to you now. Like we suspected there’s another woman here but if you play your cards well, we’ll be rid of her in no time. kkk. I love you too. bye”

(thinking out loud)

“Ooh Dan. Still as gullible as ever. How easily I fooled you. hmmmmmm….I still have to get you to give me back my 30% shares in the company coupled by the 40% I bought from the other investors, your company will be mine. Next step is to seduce him and get him to give me back my shares.(smiling)

Mitchell stood in the kitchen. She was lost in thoughts and she didn’t hear Laura come in.

“Hey you.”

“Oh hi.”

“Is that how you talk to your boss’ wife? I don’t know how things went on around here but its about to change. You might have been screwing Dan but don’t get it all up in your head it only made you a mistress since Dan and I are not divorced. I’m his wife and I’m here to stay so it’ll be in your favour to know your place..” Laura said and left.

Mitchell fell to the ground crying.

“I knew it, I knew it. Why did I allow myself to fall for him? Love was never for me. See how I fooled myself.”

Just then Trisha came in and saw Mitch on the floor crying.

“Oh Mitch. I’m sorry for all this. No one expected this. Please be patient with Dan. He loves you and won’t let anything come between you two. He’ll fix this. I promise..”

“No Trish. I don’t belong here. I can’t stay. I gotta go.”

“Please don’t go. Give it time. ok…ok. Let’s do this, stay for a few days. If things don’t change, you can leave. No one will stop you.”
The door bell rang. Mitch opened the door but she didn’t recognise the man at the door.

“Hi, can I help you? “

“Oh Mitch my love. I’ve missed you. Why did you abandon me after all we’ve shared? Come back to me please.”

“What is the meaning of this? I don’t know you. Please leave..”

It resulted to an arguement and it drew the attention of everyone in the house..

“What is going on here? “Dan asked.

“Sir, Mitch here is my fiance. We were going to get married but she left me. I guess you were her next victim. I see you are rich. I’m here to take her back with me.”

“Mitch (shocked) Is this true?”

“It’s not. Believe me. I don’t even know this man. Dan I swear”

She held him but he snatched his hands from hers and went to his room. Laura gave the strange man a knowing look and the man left.


Dan was so confused. He didn’t know what or who to believe. The man seemed sincere and Mitch is saying she doesn’t know him. Laura came in.

“Oh Dan, don’t tell me you’re bothered with what happened a while ago? You know she only wanted your money. I’m here for you my love (trying to kiss him) I have an idea. Why don’t you give me back the 30% shares I owned so I can help you manage the company well while you take some time off.”

“I can’t do that Laura. You’ve been gone for ten years, I can’t just…

“Oh come on Dan, You’re the boss. You can do what you want or haven’t you forgiven me?”

“I have but..

“But nothing. I just wanna help you..”


“yes! Thank you for trusting me..”

Dan was about to go call Laura to come sign the documents when he overheard her making a call..

“Wow baby, you did great. He fell for it. I’m going to be the owner of his company in no time. I told you he was gullible. Thank goodness Tania left with her grandparents, she might have been trouble. After tonight we’ll both become the owners of his company (smiling)

Dan was shocked. To think he actually wanted to help Laura.

“She lied to me again. The story she told me was false. How can I be this foolish? To think I doubted Mitch. hmmmm…

Ana idea came to him. He went back to his room, called someone.

After a while he got a delivery. He opened it, smiled and went to Laura’s room.

“Laura, I came with the document. After you sign, I’ll take you to the company tomorrow and tell them you’ll be resuming.”

“yes…yes…yes…thank you for trusting me.”

“No. Thanks for being here to help..”

Perfect Imperfections (Episode 7)



After that last visit to see Lucy in school, I went back home. I tried to be mindful of the fact that she now loved another, of which she denied. I still loved her but there was nothing I could do. Few days later, my call up letter for the National Youth Service came, I was posted to Calabar. So I thought, I should try to keep her out of my mind; after all, I was starting a new life.  

When I got to camp, I was already looking so thin; imagine what the drills would do to me, I’ll just “disappear” in size. I went through a lot of stress prior to this, ranging from emotional stress with Lucy to financial stress. I tried to find myself multiple sources of income; the truth was I didn’t want to bother my parents anymore. From here on out, it was a new ball game entirely. 

While in camp, I tried to build my life up once again; I wanted to start afresh. I made new friends, one of which was Benny, a sweet girl from the Niger Delta region. I still called Lucy; you won’t blame me; she was my first love. But she seemed to be avoiding me; I knew it was about Michael, she loved him, though she still denied it.

After four months without communication, I stopped trying. I was still close friends with Terry; and I made up my mind to start a relationship with her. When I asked her, she bluntly refused; saying that she didn’t want to taint our friendship.  

I was desperate for a relationship. I wanted someone who would love me, despite my imperfections and vice versa. In our flaws, I thought we could help each other carve out the best. No one seemed to be on the same page with me. I got series of advice from Olumide, a friend I met in camp, to stop running after a relationship like a man trying desperately to catch a moving bus which was not ready to stop for him to enter, he even told me his own story; I wouldn’t listen. 

As the loverboy that I was; I didn’t stop there. I told myself I would date any interested lady in camp. I needed to know how a serious relationship felt like. I told myself I was ready; and since I was no longer a student(after the covenant I had with God), I felt it was about time I had one.    

I searched high and low, I began to think that there was no one who could love me the way Lucy did. I must have understood exactly how the prodigal son felt when after all he had done to help himself, he decided to go back to his father. That’s exactly what I did.  

I went over to meet her in Awka, that was where she lived with her parents. You have no idea how much pride I let go to go after her once again, without the guarantee that she would even see me. This time we were out of camp and I had settled in my Place of Primary Assignment(PPA); so I could travel if I wanted.

Dear readers, I know you may have formed an opinion of me already; I’d like to ask, how far have you gone for love? My friend, Olumide, forfeited his admission for someone he loved, what do you think about that? You can share your story in the comment section. 

The story continues…

Perfect Imperfections (Episode 6)



Even though we remained friends, Lucy and I grew apart when I became the teaching ministry head. I no longer spent time in her room; we lived in the same environment, yet, there were some days we didn’t see each other. I was pained at how the passing of each day widened the distance between us.

My friendship with Terry at this time, blossomed. It distracted me from thinking about Lucy. We did almost everything together but that was it. I didn’t want to spoil our friendship; besides, my brother had feelings for her. So I buried myself in church work.

I also had a friend in Bro. Joshua, our fellowship head. We were very close, so much so that, after discussing spiritual matters, we would talk about personal issues. No thought crossed my mind without his knowledge; in fact, he knew virtually everything about me. He was one of the reasons I didn’t loose my mind after the recent happenings with Lucy. 

400level was gone like a breeze. I already handed over the position I was holding; so Lucy and I resumed our friendship.  I still loved her and I thought we could somehow continue from where we left off. This time, I was no longer in school and she was in her finals; I was ready to have a serious relationship with her. I would travel back to school to see her on many occasions. But I noticed that her attention was divided.   

There was a new fellowship head, his name was Micheal. Joshua was in his finals too, and had handed over to Micheal. Lucy was in a close friendship with Micheal, even spending nights at his place to study. I was disturbed, so I would ask her repeatedly and she would say they were just friends. 

On one of such visits to see her, while questioning her friendship with Micheal, we had a heart to heart talk after such a long time. And she confessed something to me; to this day, I haven’t gotten over it.  Bro. Joshua and my Lucy had slept together. This blow knocked me out. I couldn’t believe he would do this to me. This was someone I trusted; he knew everything about me. I felt betrayed.     

Lucy told me she wanted to get back at me for cheating that one time; I couldn’t blame her. In fact, I found it easy to forgive her than Bro Joshua. I am not a violent person, I couldn’t confront him.  

And so, I bottled up the betrayal, blaming myself for what happened. Sometimes, I wonder if I should have talked to him, look him in the eye and hear what kind of excuse would spill out of his “backstabbing” tongue. I haven’t been able to trust anyone again.

Dear readers, I know some of you may have gone through a betrayal at some point. If you were in my shoes, what would have been your best approach in handling the situation. I need to know I have not made a mistake.

“Girl? Uyai interrupted.

“She is just one of my assistants. See why we should get married? You wouldn’t have reacted like this. Why don’t you want to marry me? You’ve been saying I should give you time, give you time or you don’t love me again?”

“Ah Ah na. Ima mi (my love) You know I love you na. I just don’t want to rush into it.”

“Rush? We’ve been going out for close to two years. Isn’t that enough? You’re not the one mama is singing the grandchildren song for ooh. mbok, lets just get married na..”

“Guy sorry I’m late ooh. I was with uyai.”

“I hear. Na only you get babe na. I no get.”

“No vex na. Hwfa you? “

“I just de ooh. How ur side?”

“Guy na wah ooh. I’m beginning to think the assistant thing was a bad idea.”

“Haba! Why na?”

“Shae you remember that girl I told you about. The one that I bumped into and she insulted me. It turns out she is one of my assistants and she has been giving me problems. The last two weeks have been the worse weeks of my life. I have been trying to frustrate her so she’ll move for a transfer. for where? This girl no shake. Na me come even dae frustrated sef.

“Ahhhhhh! Na so the thing be? l….

His phone rang..

“Hello are you here? oya enter inside. See me here. I’m waving. Oya come.”

“Are you expecting someone?”

“Yea. I’m supposed to get something for Itoro from one of her close friends.”

“Hi Unwana. How are you?” The lady who came in asked. She turned and her eyes caught Nathaniel

“Oh crap!! You again? what on earth are you doing here? Are you stalking me now?” Emem yelled.

“Stalking you? Stalking you? please! I have better things to do with my time (to Unwana ) Why is she here?”

“Wait! Is this the girl you were talking about?”

“Yes na.”

“OK wait. Emem come let’s go outside”

“Good riddance.” Nath said between clenched teeth

Emem glared at him as she walked out with Unwana.

“Did you come with the stuff before you swallow my friend here?”

“I did (handing a card to him) That guy is your friend? Mtcheewww ..”

“It’s ok joor. How is your mom na.”

“She is still there ooh. She still haven’t woken up. I don’t know what to do again..”

“(sighs) It’s okay. At least the doctors extended the time you have to get the money.”

“Don’t worry, everything will be fine. Nnkopo(u hear)”

“OK kaadi (goodbye)”Unwana went inside and saw Nath frowning

“Oh boy wetin be this one? Na because of her your face dae like this?”

“You don’t understand. That girl has been a constant pain and headache to me since we met”

“Emem ? no it can’t be her. I’ve known that girl for a long time. She’s Itoro’s bestfriend and the nicest person I know aside from Itoro (smiles).”

“So you’re saying you don’t know me?”

“I didn’t say that. I know you very well. Which makes me believe you must have done something to her. It’s the only reason she’ll be that way. She’s actually a nice person if you get to know her”

“Me? Get to know who? No be me and you.”
