About ten minutes later after Desmond left to downstairs, Amanda walked down few blocks of the staircase, to check what he was doing and when she saw he was picking on his meal, she stood there staring at him for a brief moment before walking back, to her bedroom.
Entering her room, she picked her phone and made a call to her mom. Her mom picked up after few rings.
“Hello daughter, how is everything going?” Her mom asked.
“Not fine mama..” she then made her voice as low, “Odeya was kidnapped this afternoon by her mom. It still baffles me.”
“Chineke mo! Isi gini? – What did you say?” Her mom exclaimed.
“I’m relieved its her mom. I was so scared.” Amanda said.
“Madam Monica haven’t heard about this?” Her mom asked.
“He doesn’t want to tell her yet. Mama you must not tell her yet biko. He’s trying his best to get Odeya before her mother takes her out of the country but he don’t want to let lady Monica know about it. He think it’s going to break her down.” Amanda said.
“It’s okay. I’ve heard. But What sort of a mother would kidnap her own child. Is this what they do over there eh?”
“Mama.. Tell me, what can I do in this kind of situation. I want to be of help but I can’t believe I ended up suggesting nonense.” Amanda said.
“What do you think you can do my daughter. Just stay by his side. Stand by him and don’t let him fight it alone, inugo. Help him to get his daughter back. That’s what you have to do.” Mama said.
Amanda sighed. “Okay mama, I will.”
“Do you love him?” Mama asked.
Amanda looked at her fingers shyly and answered “yes mama, I do”
“That’s good. What about him ehn. Any sign?”
Amanda breathed out.. “Mama, I think he likes me too.”
“Not like but love. Osim Like, which kind like. He loves you eh?”
“It makes me speechless mama,” Amanda said.
She heard her mother’s exciting laughter which stopped just immediately. “Oh I shouldn’t be laughing when my step granddaughter is in danger.” she said.
Amanda sighed. “Mama, let’s talk tomorrow.”
“Where is he now, Desmond?” Mama asked.
“He’s eating downstairs but he isn’t really eating.” Amanda answered.
“And where are you?”
“In my room Mama..”
“Doing what? Ngwa pua je kwuru ya -Go out, Go to him now.” Mama ordered.
“Go go go… He needs you. I’m dropping the call. Don’t call me again this night.” Mama said.
“Mama wait..” Amanda called but the line had dropped already. She sighed.
“Mama… you are unbelievable..” she muttered and walked to the door.
Opening it, she flinched on seeing Desmond standing by her door.
He had two beer cans in his hands.
Stretching one to her, he said, “Let’s have just one.”
Amanda shook her head, “Not again sir,”
“Should we go out then or something?” he asked.
Amanda raised her brows, “huh?”
He chuckled. “Does it look too tense tonight? A lot of things been happening.” he said and walked into Amanda’s room.
In her room?
Okay, Amanda then noticed he reck of alcohol. He had drank before bringing those.
He settled on her bed and opened one of the beer.
“Sir, you you shouldn’t be here, I mean in my room.” Amanda said and wiped the little sweat that had formed on her forehead. “And you have been drinking” she added.
“Don’t worry, I won’t hurt my hand this time,” he said and took a sip. “Come have a seat, don’t stand there like some soldier.” he said to her.
Amanda inhaled. ‘He’s sitting on my bed when there’s a chair there. Oh I’m so tensed.’
She slowly walked to the chair close to the dressing table and sat down.
“That’s your drink.” he said.
She shook her head. “No sir, I’m fine.”
There came a pretty long silence before Amanda decided to break it.
But Desmond cut her short. “About her, she can take her if she want.”
Amanda raised her brows. “What? You mean Vanessa, sorry, I mean her mom?”
“What are you sorry about? Her name is Vanessa. Deya had wanted to go back to her. Now she have the chance to. I should let her.” he said.
Amanda stood up. “Sir, you can’t let her. You are only saying this cos you are drunk. Stop drinking please” she grabbed the beer from him but unfortunately, it poured on his white shirt.
Amanda gasped. “Oh my God, I’m so sorry sir” she said and without thinking, grabbed her duvet and began wiping it on the spot but her hand was grabbed by Desmond’s who chuckled and said, “you are only making it worse. Don’t worry about this, but worry about this” he placed her hand on his left chest.
Amanda’s heart raised. “Sir?”
“Don’t you feel anything? Don’t you feel my beating heart. Don’t you feel anything at all Amanda?” he asked.
Amanda swallowed hard. “S sir.. I don’t understand.. Please can can you let go of my hand.”
“What did you say? Your husband is holding your hand and you’re telling him to let go?” he asked.
‘My husband? No, he’s just drunk’ Amanda said within.
“I’m sorry I have to take my hand,” she said and forcefully took it, but Desmond grabbed it again causing her to fall on him and him on the bed. Only a moment of eye to eye stare and Desmond lips was on hers.
Every thought was lost for a moment before Amanda got back to her senses and quickly jacks herself off him and rushed to the ensuite, banging the door close.
She had just been kissed by Desmond.
She fell back on the door and shut her eyes.
‘Oh my God.. What just happened. What do I do?’
She touched her lips.
‘He really kissed me! he did..oh my god’
Her heart was beating fast and loud that she could hear it.
She felt goosebumps on her skin.
She was sweating too.
“I.. I am sorry Amanda, I shouldn’t have done that. I know I’m drunk,forgive me.” she heard him say from her room.
She shut her eyes tighter.
Then she heard the door open and close.
She breathed out and slowly opened her eyes, grabbing the doorknob, she opened the bathroom door and slowly walked out to the bedroom. He left with the cans.
She wiped her face with her two hands and exhaled.
“He kissed me, he really did.” she muttered and found her self smile.
Soon she was slowly walking to the exit door. Getting there, She grabbed the doorknob and slowly opened it to peep out but there was Desmond, standing by the door.
He had been standing there.
Both stared at each other.
They could feel the heat of their love for each other.
Desmond glanced at the beer cans in his hands then back to her. “I’m sorry for kissing you Amanda. I was drunk and I still am.” he said.
Amanda took a step.
“But I can’t help it Amanda, I think I’m…no..” he paused and shook his head.
Amanda took another step.
He breathed out”..I I’m in love with you Amanda. ”
Amanda took the last step which was the last and which got her very close to Desmond. Without a saying a word, she stood on her toes, wrapped her arm around his neck and placed her lips on his. He kissed back without hesitation.
This time around, it was beautiful.
Desmond wrapped his own arms around her slim waist, careful not to get down to the hips yet.
Even though he smelt of alcohol, Amanda didn’t care.
All she cared for was the beautiful kiss. The kiss which is about to change a lot of things.
A kiss which she had yawned for so long.
None wanted to stop this kiss but they eventually did and when they did, both began laughing.
What was even funny?
“Why are you laughing?” Amanda was the first to ask.
“But you are too.” Desmond said.
Amanda covered her lips with her hand and shyly turned away.
But she wasn’t shy few minutes ago, what suddenly happened again?
“I noticed that you love late night movies, should we watch one?” Desmond asked.
Amanda remembered Odeya.
“Odeya..” she said.
“She’s fine wherever she is right now.. Trust me on that Amanda. And didn’t you tell me not to worry too much that Odeya would come back?” Desmond said.
“I’m worried..” Amanda said.
Desmond took her hand and turned her over to face him.
“Let’s watch movies or do you prefer we go out or something?” he asked.
Amanda chuckled. “It’s late.”
Both held hands as they walked down the staircase to the sitting room. Amanda saw that Desmond didn’t eat anything from his food.
“I had no appetite then” he said.
“Me too,” Amanda said.
Both sat down on a three sitter couch and settled for a Nollywood movie.
“You like nollywood?” he asked her.
“Yeah, but only the interesting movies.” she answered.
He smiled and the next thing, he laid his head on her thighs.
“I might fall asleep soon,” he said but he never did until the movie got over. It was such an interesting one and filled with comedy.
The time was past one.
Desmond looked at Amanda. “Wanna sleep?” he asked.
“I..I don’t really know. I’m not sleepy.”
“I am,” he said and got up. “Let’s go to bed” he said and dragged her up.
They went upstairs holding hands and when he got to his door, he refused letting go of her hand.
“Goodnight s sir” Amanda said.
“Don’t call me that from onwards. You can start by calling me honey” Desmond said.
Amanda looked away shyly.
He placed his hand on her jaw and raised her face.
“Let’s go on a date soon, I love you Amanda,” he said and kissed her. “Goodnight darling.” he said.
Amanda could hardly breathe.
When she finally entered her room, she let it all out. All the times she had held her breathe.
“I can’t believe this,” she said and collapsed on her bed.
As Desmond was about to lay down, his phone rang. It was Vanessa.
He picked up.
“Hello Ex husband.” she spoke first.
“How’s my daughter?” Desmond asked.
“She’s at the right place.. Just the right place. I am her mother, you cant distance me from my child. I had to do anything to bring her to me.” she said.
“Then can I ask you for a Favour?” he said
“What favour?” she asked.
“Take care of her and if she ever cry of wanting to come back, bring her back.” he said.
“She can’t do that. She knows I’m the one she deserve to grow up with,not you.”
“Let me talk to my daughter in the morning. Bye”
“I missed you Desmond.” she said but the call had ended already.
She dropped the phone and sipped from her wine then turning to the sleeping Odeya, she said. “I don’t know why but I’m suddenly remembering our moments together, your father and I.”
