(About two hours later, in Desmond’s room)
“I can never do that mom, never!” Desmond said with his back at his mom.
“Look at me son.. Please. You can do it. Don’t say you can’t. You can do it. You can forgive her and let her have another chance to live and make up for the wrongs that she did,” Lady Monica said.
“Why mom? Why are you saying these? You hated her immediately you set your eyes on her. You wanted her out immediately. You should be happy that she’s getting her punishment for being evil.” Desmond said.
“Desmond I am a mother, I can’t sit back and watch a young and beautiful lady like that die because of her desperation. I heard from her friend that she is the only daughter of her parents. No parents would wish to loose their child. Yes she did very wrong but thank God it wasn’t too late. Please forgive her biko,” Lady Monica said.
“Mom, you can leave now.. If you are too tired to drive, I would call Peter to drive you home. Thanks for your help yesterday,” Desmond said, stood up and headed to the door.
“Desmond you can’t do this.. This isn’t you my son.. You have to forgive no matter what. You can’t let her die, her life depends on your forgiveness,” Lady Monica said.
“I am not God. If she wants another chance, let her ask it from God. I can’t forgive her so soon.” Desmond said and opened the door. Standing by the door was Amanda.
He walked out and turned to walk away but in front of him was Odeya.
“Dad,” Odeya called. Desmond walked to her squatted in front of her.
“Yes dear. You know we always go out on Sundays. Where do you wanna go today?” he asked.
“I have a place to go but dad can you listen to grandma and my nanny?” Odeya said.
Desmond sighed, stood up and walked back to Amanda.
Amanda could see how angered his face was. He got to her.
“Deya is still a little girl. Don’t let her talk about things like this. You are her nanny,” he said to her.
Desmond turned and walked back to Odeya. “Your nanny would get you ready. Where should we go today?” he asked.
“NewLife Hospital” Odeya said.
Desmond raised his brows, with thoughts that Gold is in the hospital.
“What are we going to a hospital to do?” he asked her.
“To Visit the sick.” Odeya said.
“And who is that?” Desmond said.
“My classmate,” Odeya said.
“He or She?” Desmond asked.
“He” Odeya said.
Desmond breathed out.
“Is that where you and your nanny had been going?” he asked.
“Yes. Go with us today dad,” Deya said.
“You and who?” he asked.
“My nanny,” Odeya said.
“I have to go now Amanda, please take care of him and Odeya. Help me talk to him about Gold. I’m sure he would change his mind,” Lady M said to Amanda.
“Ma, but he’s your son. He would listen to you and not me. I can’t even talk to him, I’m just a nanny,” Amanda said.
“Shh you aren’t. I’m leaving you with him Amanda. Please take care of him for me, I’m sure you can make him change his mind and forgive Gold but not to go back to her.” She said.
“He can’t go back to her,” Amanda snapped.
Lady Monica smiled.
They looked at Desmond and Odeya talking.
“I will try my best,” Amanda said.
“Thank you,” Lady Monica said and walked to Desmond and Odeya.
“I’ll be leaving now..” Lady Monica said to Desmond.
“Deya, take good care of yourself OK. I’m going to visit soon. Your dad and your nanny is here for you okay?” she said to Deya who nodded.
“Alright grandma. Bye..” Deya said and hugged her.
The three family went downstairs and outside to Lady Monica’s car.
“Desmond..” she called turning to Desmond. “..please don’t forget make a change of mind and forgive her, I beg of you son.”
Desmond said nothing..
“Deya, I will visit again soon OK?” she said to Deya who smiled.
“Okay Grandma, you’ve said that already.” Deya said.
Lady Monica smiled and entered her car.
The gate was opened by I.K and lady Monica drove out.
I.K closed the gate and waved at Desmond.
“Oga, good morning o..”
“Good morning I.K,” Desmond responded and headed inside with Deya.
“Chaii… Person suppose go church go give thanksgiving today, I swear… I talk am say that girl na witch.. Make she mad enter market.. Haha” I.k laughed and entered his quarter.
“Dad aren’t you going to forgive her?” Odeya asked her dad as they headed upstairs.
“Come on, let’s not talk about her. Go get ready to go see your classmate. He must be expecting you,” Desmond said.
“Okay dad,” Odeya said.
(Fast forward: Two hours Later🕐)
They pulled into the premises of NewLife Hospital. Desmond stopped the car at the parking lot.
Amanda and Odeya who were at the backseat came down then Desmond did.
They walked into the hospital and headed to the room Jeremy is.
Getting there, Jeremy was sitting on the bed, eating with the help of his mom.
Odeya was happy to see him again likewise Jeremy.
“Hello Jeremy.. How are you doing?” Odeya said.
“I’m fine Odeya. Thanks for coming,” Jeremy said.
Odeya turned to his mom. “Hello ma.”
Jeremy’s mom smiled. “Welcome Odeya.”
“That’s my dad,” Odeya introduced.
Desmond did a little bow at Jeremy’s mom. “Hello ma.” he said.
“Oh my.. Your dad is really handsome.” J’s mom told Odeya and smiled at Desmond. “Thanks for coming sir. It’s a pleasure meeting you.”
“Thanks, And you too,” Desmond said.
“Hello ma’am,” Amanda said.
J’s mom smiled. “Amanda, how are you?”
“I’m fine ma’, and you?” Amanda said.
“I’m fine. Jimi would have loved to see you but he’s out right now. I hope he comes before you leave.” she said.
Desmond glanced at Amanda, wondering who Jimi is to her.
Wait, why was he wondering?
“How’s your wife doing? You both had a wonderful kid here,” J’s mom said to Desmond.
How’s his wife?
What’s he to answer. Of course as always, what he respond to others.
“We ain’t together,” he said.
J’s mom looked disappointed. “Ohh.. I’m sorry. I had no idea,” she said.
“It’s okay..” he said and turned to Odeya. “I will be at the hospital lounge waiting, Deya we won’t be able to stay long. We got somewhere else to go OK?” he said.
“Okay dad,” Deya said.
Desmond glanced at Amanda before walking out?
‘Who’s Jimi?’ he wondered. ‘What’s their relationship?’
Then he stopped for a moment.
‘Why I’m I wondering? It’s not like she’s not an adult. That’s none of my business’ he concluded and settled on a chaise.
Minutes later, A young guy of not up to twenty years old, who Desmond thought has the face of Jeremy’s mom walked in and headed towards the wards.
‘Could that be the Jimi?’ he asked himself and felt like going there.
He was about standing up when he got back to himself and said within, ‘Few minutes ago, I said it’s none of my business.’
He crossed his leg and sank more on the chaise.
As he did so, his thoughts went to Gold and how he has disappointed himself.
His phone began ringing. He took it out and it’s his mom. He breathed out and picked it up.
“Hello mom,” he spoke first.
“Yes son, how are you doing?”
“Where are you? That place seem a little bit noisy,”
“I’m at a hospital. Deya said she want to see her sick classmate. We would soon be leaving tho.”
“Oh alright. How’s Amanda doing?”
“Why are you asking me about her when you just left my house few hours ago.”
“I see.. You can just say she’s fine rather than that. Anyways, I’ll speak with you later. Niko, don’t forget to have a rethink about that girl, Gold. My mind is not at rest because of that. I forgot to collect her friend’s phone number. Tell Amanda to send it to me via text message OK?”
Desmond inhaled. “Mom.”
“Okay son, bye for now. Take care of yourself and the ladies,” Lady Monica said and dropped the call.
‘Take care of the ladies?’ Desmond chuckled.
“…I’m filled up.” Jeremy said.
“Have a mother spoon, will you?” his mom said to him.
“No, I’m okay.” he said.
Odeya collected the plate of noodles.
“Noodles and pancake are my favorite. I’ll finish the remain,” she said and stretched out her hand to J’s mom for the spoon.
J’s mom smiled and handed it to her. “You are such a sweet girl Odeya. Now I wish to have a daughter soon, so I can name her Odeya..” J’s mom said to Odeya who smiled widely.
“Then I’m gonna be her godmother. Would you let me?” she asked.
J’s mom laughed while Amanda was in smiles. “Of course I will let you be her godmother,” J’s mom said.
Both laughed out.
J’s mom looked at her son and Odeya and letting out a dreamy smile, she said. “I’m picturing how beautiful my grandchildren would be.”
Amanda raised her brows. ‘What?’
“Are you expecting grandchildren soon ma?” Odeya asked.
J’s mom smiled. “Not yet my dear but soon. The years comes so fast.” she said.
Amanda could see that Odeya was quite confused.
After all, she’s still a child.
Odeya just shrugged and started eating the noodles.
The door opened and Jimi walked in.
He felt happy seeing Amanda and Odeya.
“Hello aunty Amanda and beautiful Deya. I’m so happy to see you. I waited a lot yesterday,” he said and hugged Odeya from behind then walked to Amanda. He was just smiling as he stood in front of her.
‘He’s such a cute guy.. I’m sure a lot of girls would be dying to be his girlfriend.’ Amanda said within.
“My bad! I should have bought something’s on the way.” he said.
“It’s okay. Odeya is having noodles. Besides this is hospital and not an eatery or party. We are here to see Jeremy and not you, right Deya?” Amanda asked.
“Yes nanny,” Odeya answered with mouth full of noodles.
“Oh that’s unfair. Anyways Aunty Amanda, can I take a selfie with you?” Jimi asked.
“Jimi!” his mom called.
“Please?” he pleaded, joining his hands together in plea and ignoring his mom.
Amanda chuckled. “It’s Okay.”
“Thank youuu.” Jimi said and took out his iPhone from his trouser pocket. Putting the camera, he came closer to Amanda.
Amanda put on a bright smile and he took twice shots.
“Wow.. I love this pictures. It’s so beautiful”
“Take a picture of I, Jeremy and your mom too, will you?” Odeya said.
Jimi smiled. “Of course.” he said and walked over to them.. He positioned his phone to take the picture but another phone was presented to him by Odeya.
“Use this one..” she said.
“Is it yours?” he asked.
“Yes, it’s mine.” Odeya said.
“Wow, I love the fancy pack, it’s so pretty.” he said.
“Thanks” odeya said.
Jimi took the pictures with Odeya’s phone. Odeya and Jeremy were taking alone when the door opened and Desmond walked in.
“Hey dad, come take a picture,” odeya shouted.
“Huh?” Desmond said.
He had come to confirm if he is really the Jimi. Well he is. There’s no way a relationship can be between him and Amanda. He’s a teen.
He wondered why he felt bit relieved by that.
“Come on dad. Let’s all take pictures together. Five of us.” Odeya said.
“Hello sir. You are Odeya’s dad?” Jimi asked.
“Yes I am.” Desmond said.
Jimi bowed his head. “Thanks for coming with Odeya and aunty Amanda.” he said.
‘Oh he even calls her aunty. Of course he should.’ Desmond said within.
“It’s okay. Let’s take one shot then.” he said and walked over but he was standing right beside Amanda. Their hands brushed each other and both glanced at themselves then tried adjusting but there was no space for that.
Amanda why standing close to him make her heart beat faster. People stand close to people all the time.. why’s hers different?
There was no need of her questioning herself when she knows the answer but she is scared that he won’t ever be able to feel sake way for her.
What’s the point of being in love with him?
Even if his mom made plan for them to be together at the end, Amanda do not believe such end.
“Okay, the capture is on 10 seconds delay.. Let’s go now.” Jimi said, dropped the phone on a good capturing side of the bed and rushed to the crew but the only space was beside Desmond so in his rush, he collided with Desmond and Desmond who didn’t see that coming, lost his stand and was pushed thereby pushing him to Amanda. Amanda lost her stand too and was going to collide with the drip stand but was caught by Desmond’s left arm around her. The phone captured just then and both looked at each other.
Amanda heart beat raised that she could even hear her heart beating.
Desmond being that close to her noticed the tiny scar on the left side of her forehead for the first time but that wasn’t the only thing he noticed, he noticed how beautiful her eyes are and her big her hips are.
He immediately removed his hand.
“Let’s take one more..” Jimi said and re put the camera.
He rushed back again but this time, there was no colliding.
Amanda swallowed and faced the phone.
Desmond silently cleared his throat and faced the phone.
The phone captured and that was the end.
“Wow, the pictures are so cute.. but on the first picture, aunty Amanda you look like someone in shock. Like someone who got a surprise gift. Your facial expression on the picture. You look so beautiful.” Jimi said.
Amanda inhaled.. ” R Really?”
“Yes..well, Odeya can I share the photos into my phone?” Jimi asked.
“You can.” Odeya said.
Jimi smiled and went to an empty seat to do just that.
“We should leave when he is done sharing the pictures into his phone. I have somewhere to take you Daya,” Desmond said.
“Of course not only me but my nanny too,” Deya said. Desmond and Amanda’s eyes met and they looked away instantly.
“Yes yes with her,” Desmond said.
“Jeremy, get up quickly and come to school okay?” Deya said to Jeremy as they were ready to leave.
Jeremy nodded. “I will.”
“I will be waiting for you in school Jeremy, make sure you come tomorrow or next. You heard me?” Deya said
“I will Deya,” Jeremy said.
“I will be going now. Take care of yourself.” she said.
“I will. Thank you for coming. Today was fun.” Jeremy said.
“Thanks for making today fun for our Jeremy. We appreciate your visit. Thank you.” J’s mom said.
“Thank you for visiting today Aunty Amanda. It’s no nice to meet someone like you and Deya. Thank you.” Jimi said.
Jimi walked them to the car and they got in.
“Bye byee” he said, waving.
Amanda and Odeya waved back and soon, they were on the main road.
“Where are we going dad?” Odeya asked.
“Let’s go shopping.” Desmond said.
“Really? That sound great,” Deya said…
As Desmond drove, he could see Amanda’s face on the rear view mirror.
He couldn’t stop glancing at those eyes.
