“Sky who is this?” That was the very first
hello i got from Jessy on drifting back to
She nudged her head towards licia’s
direction to make me understand who she
was talking about without her noticing.
Chioma was seating beside me at the right
flank clutching my right hand in both her
hands. the sagging eye bags and swollen
face clearly showed she had being crying.
“Oh Jessy, she’s just a very good friend of
mine i met somewhere” Jessy’s face
twitched betraying the suspicion that she
still harbored but she masked it with a
smile, of course that was meant for chioma
she could never mask her emotion from me
even with a smile.
Jessy did some medical magics as usual,
restoring my full consciousness, my blurry
vision, the throbbing headache and severe
wooziness all vanished.
“Sky you had a severe case of stress
coupled with depression and taking alcohol
didn’t help at all. your body couldn’t take it
anymore and it gave way, please sky don’t
take alcohol again in such situation” it
ranged like a warning and a command at
the same time. but the little pinch of fear
made it clear she was serious.
“Baby please am very sorry, forgive me”
Chioma sang out bursting into another
round of uncontrollable tears.
From the sign licia gave me from the
opposite sofa where she sat, it was clear
she had talked to chioma and told her
everything while i was out.
“Please sky am so sorry forgive me” She
made to kneel down, i held her in my arms
and dragged her up in one fluid movement.
Here before me i could see my future, the
ground from whence my little seed
germinated waiting to say “hello” to a crazy
world with a crazy short time.
My gaze moved from Jessy who was
almost crying too, to licia who stood with a
pouty smile on.
I gave licia a hard wink, and she handed
me over the ring she took while taking the
car keys from me.
The curtains around the house lay still as if
they understood the anxiety that hugged
Only the buzzing sound of the air
conditioner defiled all bid for quietness as it
went on singing its own cold buzzing song.
I went down on both my knees again, my
gaze fixed on the ring in my hand, it tilted
up to Chioma who was mopped on tears
still streaming down her face in fast
“Life they say is full of raging tides” I
began, “but a wise lady once told me” my
face tilted to give Licia an appreciative
“That what makes a successful life is riding
with the tides” Chioma’s face grew reddish
pale, her hands covered her mouth but they
“I humbly and sincerely ask again, Miss
Chioma Ugwu, will you marry me?”
My voice was shaky and a gulp of throaty
air made it sound croaky.
Chioma’s face went from weeping to a
mixture of crying and laughing.
She looks at Jessy and Licia this time, falls
down on her knees too and threw her
hands around me with a hard quick reflex.
“Yes sky, yes i will marry you” she blurted
out the tears now streaming down harder
than before but yet she was laughing hard.
**Na like so them deh take confuse us
finish, which one you deh do abeg??**
I slipped the ring into her finger for the
second time, this time i have a feeling it will
never slip out.
Our lips met in a very explosive kiss, it was
a combination of all the kisses we didnt
have through out the troubling times. A
huge chunk of passion smeared in a rush
of intense affection.
Chioma got up and rushed into Licia’s
arms, clasping her tight in embrace.
Their are times when people you least
expects comes into your life and makes it
better, mine was fixed not by papa or
Jessy, but a call girl who would imagine
“Thank you and am sorry” Chioma
whispered to licia but yet it was audible
enough for Jessy and i to hear.
“Who is there? Jessy yelled at the door as
a knock sipped in.
The whole scenario was changed again as
a figure of Amanda walked into the sitting
room with Jessy.
She had Ryan in her arms and his back
pack in another.
The way she walked in, one would not help
to think her steps were intentionally gentle
She was clad in a pink flowery tight
leggings and a white top to go with
complimented by a pink high heeled shows.
Her face was dragged to an expression of
surprise and contempt immediately she
stepped in and Chioma was standing there.
Chioma even clasped her hands around me
immediately she entered. She shrugged
and rolled her eyes slightly.
The atmosphere went stale all of sudden, it
was like everyone held their breathe except
Jessy’s whose heavy breathing could be
mistaken for a raging waterfall.
“What is it Amanda” I asked, the black
mascara line bordering her eyes gave her a
sinister look before me.
“Is that a way to address the mother of
your child, your son?” She returned looking
at me squarely on the face then Chioma,
she widened her eyes as she took her gaze
down to Chioma’s stomach which still
seemed as flat as a concrete wall to me.
“Please i am not in the mood for this, say
what you want and get out as you can see
The little chuckle she gave out made licia
turn in her current seating position as she
watched on possibly trying to add the
pieces together the much she could.
“Your son have been disturbing to visit you”
She intoned giving Ryan a gentle nudge as
she stressed the word ‘son’ a little
“I can see you have a full house” she was
now looking at licia who returned her gaze
“So i have to leave him here, cus i need to
go somewhere now”
She nudged Ryan gently and he gently ran
to me clasping his tiny small hands around
“Be a good boy” She intoned, not so sure if
that was meant for me or Ryan, she
dropped his back park and then cat walked
out in a rehearsed manner.
Jessy carried Ryan off to play with him
immediately the door closed behind
I slumped back on my chair, my hands on
my face and a loud sigh.
“Baby don’t worry, everything will be well”
Chioma said throwing her hands around
me, but i could see an unsaid worry written
all over her face.
