Ugochi watched as Fredrick paced nervously in front of her. For the first time since she met him, she came to his house for a visit. Also, this is the first time he’s showing any form of nervousness to her, he’s always so cool and collected. He looks cute in his nervousness, though.
“Fredrick, will you calm down please? Won’t you have a seat and let’s talk about this?”
She looked around but couldn’t find another seat except the sofa she was seating on. Fredrick’s place is the perfect example of a bachelor pad. He had just the bare essentials; a sofa, a big a-s TV, a DVD, cable TV, a lot of books arranged neatly on the bookshelf, and that was it.
He must be an avid reader. Only a person who loves books will take such great care to arrange them properly and care for them in such a way. Ugochi looked towards him, he was still pacing.
“Fredrick, come on. It’s not the end of the world, you know. I know how insensitive Ikem can be so I don’t blame you for flying off the handle.”
“I just don’t know what to do. I don’t care about Ikem but he was the only link I had towards my mother. Now, I might never get to meet her because I wasn’t patient with him.”
“Come sit. I’m sure we can devise a plan.”
He reluctantly shuffled towards her. He had such a worried look on his face and Ugochi felt for him.
“I don’t know what to do.” He put his head in his hands
Ugochi moved closer to him and put her arm around him. “It’s going to be fine. You’ll get to meet her even if we have to stalk him until he goes to visit her.”
Fredrick turned his head towards her and smiled for the first time in two hours. “Now, that’s a brilliant plan!”
Ugochi looked at him askance. “But, I was just kidding!”
“No, no, look at it this way. Ikem just heard this monumental news that he is maybe a twin and that his mother has another child out there. What do you think he would do?”
“He’ll probably go visit her to ask and confirm if it was true?”
“Bingo! I think he’ll visit her very soon. We need to be prepared.”
“But Fredrick, isn’t that rather taking it too far?”
“How else am I going to know my birth parents? Do you see Ikem reaching out after what happened? He believes I took you from him, he thinks we are together and that you’ve been lying to him for a long time. That alone can cloud any man’s judgment.”
“What a load of rubbish. I’ve never cheated on him and he knows it. Anyway, I’m done with that.”
“Are you sure?”
“You expect me to go back to him after he beat me black and blue?”
“No, I don’t but you never know with abuse victims. Most times, they end up back with their abuser.”
“I assure you I’m not going back.”
“Not even when he comes begging, hat in hand?”
“When? Not if?”
“Yes, when. Believe me, he’s going to come back and beg.”
“If you say so but not even then. I’m never going back to Ikem.”
“That’s good. That’s very good.”
“You sound suspiciously happy.”
“That’s because I know a good thing when I see it.” He winked
“What’s that supposed to mean?” she narrowed her eyes suspiciously
“Time will tell, babe. Time will tell.” he winked again. “But really, how come you didn’t meet Ikem’s parents? Or rather, my parents?”
“Who said I didn’t?”
“If you met them, you’ll obviously know where they live.”
“Ohh, yeah. The time was just never right.”
“Yes, I just wasn’t ready for that kind of ‘meeting the parents’ commitment yet. Now, I’m glad I didn’t.”
“Hmm, you can say that again.” He clapped his hands together eagerly. “So, are you in this with me?”
“Uh, yeah. You don’t expect me to miss all the fun.”
He clapped his hands together like someone preparing to dig into a delicacy. “Let’s do this then.”
Ugochi couldn’t help but smile. “Yeah, let’s”
