Ebere was in her room when the knock came.She slowly walked to the door,clenching her teeth in pains.Her shoulder still gave her great pains.She managed to open the door with one hand,only to find Angela standing there.
Ebere was short of words on seeing her.She thought Angela would never have anything to do with her again.She was even planning to go over to her home and apologise to her.
“I am sorryyy Angel.I am sorry”She begged,falling at her feet.Angela felt her tear drops on her feet.She soon saw herself shedding tears too.
“It’s okay.Get up”Angela helped her up and supported her into the room.
Ebere felt a great inner peace.Her joy knew no bounds.
“I know that i am not worthy to call myself your friend again.I dont deserve you.Inspite of all you have been doing for me.From our school days up till now…”
“shhhh.It’s alright.lets call everything that bit in the night mosquitoes.Let by gones to by gones.No matter what happens,we are friends for life”Angela said,not even believing she was saying that.Ebere’s unstoppable tears came again as she fell into Angela’s arms sobbing.
A knock came on the door.Ebere told Angela unnecessarily that it was one of her neighbours who has been rendering help to her.
“The door is open”She said,referring to the person at the door,expecting the expected neighbour to come in but nobody came in.
The knock came again.
Ebere tried to get up with the pains to open the door but Angela offered to open it.
When she did,whom she saw made her almost loose balance as he kept staring at her.She didn’t know how to feel at all.She stole a look at Ebere,barring the person from looking inside the room with her body.
“who is it?”Ebere asked.
Angela opened the door wide and stood at one corner for Ebere to see for herself.
For some seconds,Ebere couldn’t figure out whom it was.She stood up from the foam and came closer.
Then,she saw him.
It was MIKE,standing there with two hands in his pockets.
Ebere came closer to the door,to make sure her eyes weren’t deceiving her.
For few minutes,nobody said anything.Ebere took time staring at him from head to toe.His appearance still speaks volumes about his wealth.
Angela too was surprised;after all these years?
“Have you come to add salt to my injuries?
Have you come to scratch my healing wounds?
What do you want?
Just leave”Ebere produced her two hands and pushed him,forgetting that hands would hurt.She let out a loud cry.Her arm ached,giving her the worst pain she ever felt since the incident took place.
She bent down and supported the wounded hand with the other.
Angela rushed up to her to support her.Ebere’s push came all of a sudden.She could have stopped her if she had seen it coming.
“Why did you do that? You shouldn’t have done so”Angela reprimanded her.
Mike came in.He wasn’t angry by the way he was pushed but he pitied Ebere.The way she was crying truly showed she was passing through great pains.’or could it be that his presence also added to the pains?’He thought.His spirit tempted him to touch her hand,to give her some comfort but he held himself for the meantime.She might do the worse.
“What happened to you?”He asked,showing great concern.
“It’s none of your business! Just leave!”Ebere barked,pointing at the door for him.
“Baby!Keep quiet!Just keep quiet.I guess you don’t know what you are doing”Angela hushed her and turned to Mike,”I’m sorry mike.She’s just going through a hard time”
“Baby why don’t you hear me out first?”Mike said,rather asked,looking at Ebere’s eyes pleadingly.
Ebere hissed and took her eyes off him.
“Baby.you must listen to him”Angela said.
Mike went down on his kneels,keeping his pride aside,to the astonishment of the Angela and even Ebere,though she concealed it.Getting Ebere back was the only thing on his mind.The only mission he has to accomplish.
“Baby i am sorry.I have come to realise that you are my missing rib.I am incomplete without you.Ever since i left you,i have been to hell and i’m back.I realised that you are like a file in my heart that can never be erased.I hope there is still a place for me in your heart.Please Baby…forgive me and accept me back into your life..I know i broke your heart and left you with great pains…..”He paused and reached for his handky.He wouldn’t dare cry in front them for the man that he was but a drop of tear which tricked down from his eyes had betrayed him.
Ebere looked away,crying her heart out at the inside.
Angela who couldn’t stand it,went up to him,helping him get on his feet.
“It’s okay.Just stop….please”She urged him.
“It’s been four years Mike.Four years.Just few days to our wedding,you broke up with me.Tearing me apart emotionally.I fell sick Mike.Yes,I almost ran mad.why..why?”Ebere wept.
Mike found the courage to come closer to her.He held her,drying her tears with his own cloth.
“I am so sorry.I will never do that again”Mike kissed her forehead,gently drawing her to himself.Oh how soft it still was;that softness that gave him relief whenever he felt it.
Angela smiled and winked at Ebere,who showed a little happiness.
“We are going to arrange for our marriage without wasting anytime”Tony whispered to Ebere.She smiled and nodded.Overwhelmed with the sudden joy that filled her in.She still found it hard to believe this was happening.After all this years.
Mike searched for her lips,kissing them warmly,trying to ease her pains.After sometime,he stopped.Ebere wished he didn’t stop because its really been a long time he got such a true kiss from some who truly loves her.
Angela clapped in ecstacy,smiling happily.
“Wow wow wow. I am so happy Baby.I cant wait”Angela rushed her words and embraced both of them together.
“The police is not releasing the girl in question because of anything else if not for the fact that the person who brought up the report has explained to us that everything was a mistake.Not because you are my friend.We fined her enermously,though we are still going to investigate further.We are releasing her but if we later find out she was responsible,the law would not hesitate to take action”The inspector of police told Mr.uwa
“I know that too well.The law doesn’t understand friendship.Thank you very much”Mr uwa shook hands with him.
