The Best Of African Stories

Special scenes *life as a corper* 111


I sat outside with tears in my eyes and thought over my life.
“I have lost Adaora, lost my happiness, betrayed my family and disappointed everyone. How do i face them?” i wondered. I knew Adaora was dead serious when she said it was all over between us, unlike the previous occasions when it simply fell out of her lips without any iota of seriousness.

“i’m lost” i cried, “where do i go from here?, will Obinna’s place be condusive to spend the night?, what excuse will i give him?” i wondered, shaking my head unhappily as i remembered all that led me to Tessy’s house that very day.

“or should i go back to Tessy?” i wondered sadly, shaking my head in regret because i knew it was the most insane thing to do.
“what if Adaora is still watching me?” i reasoned. My phone rang minutes later, shaking me out of my thoughts. It was Tessy who was calling.

“how far?” she asked,

“i’m finished, lost and stranded” i confessed,

“where are you?” she asked. I gave her the exact location without hiding anything.

“i’m coming right away, just stay tight” she assured and hung up. I couldn’t believe the situation i found myself in, i equally wasn’t prepared for it, even though i knew it was something that meant to happen, judging by my way of life.

Tessy showed up twenty five minutes later. I joined her in the car, she slowly drove to a small cafe which had just three customers in it.

“just relax and breathe deeply everything is going to be alright” she assured sweetly when we settled down at the cafe.

“Adaora really isn’t just an ordinary girl to me, she’s my wife to be, i love her alot, our families are in this together, moreover she’s worth double my inheritance” i cried.

Tessy’s simply held her jaw and listened attentively as i poured out my heart to her. I also told her my story with Adaora, how it all began and the truth about my family. I truly couldn’t control myself. I wanted to share my burden, my pain and my sadness with a friend. She happened to be at the right place at the right time. Her face coloured as she listened, at a point her eyes melted with unshed tears. My story really had an effect on her.

“hmmm what a touching story, i swear i would have done much more than locking you out if was Adaora, but seriously she couldn’t have ended it just like that because you guys really have come along way. I guess she takes over from her mum, i fairly know the woman, she’s a very uptight, proud and shrewd business woman c-m politician, there were some gossips about her sometime ago” she said when i was done with my story. I shrugged and said nothing.

“no wonder you hardly demand for anything, you are truly not a hungry graduate” she joked, but i really didn’t find her comment funny because of my situation.

“yea i know the head can never control the heart, but i have a proposal to make” she smiled, reached for my hand across the table and held it.

“will you like to redeploy back to Abuja?, i have the necessary contacts to make it happen quickly. I can also set up a decent apartment and even a car for you. All i want is for you to be happy, forget about her and move on with your life. Imo state really isn’t the place for you and i hate to say that your Ada girl truly won’t be a good wife material for you. Just give me the go ahead please” she proposed.

I couldn’t believe my ears. I breathed deeply, locking glances with her.

To be continued.

    That Adaora is too dominating. She is really isn’t a wife material.

    Finally, to hell with Elinor, to hell with Adaora. Elinor will look either loathe you or respect you. If I were Val, I wud tell Tessy I need time to think about it and during dat time try to find ways to amend d fence with Adaora. If I can’t get Adaora back, I will yield partly to Tessy’s proposal but not totally. Even dou a lady’s heart is unpredictable, Val can exercise a little bit of control over Tessy if he starts early. Update oooo. Hapi weekend

    ”My son, pay attention to my wisdom; listen carefully to my wise counsel.
    Then you will show discernment, and your lips will express what you’ve learned.
    For the lips of an immoral woman are as
    sweet as honey, and her mouth is smoother than oil.
    But in the end she is as bitter as poison, as dangerous as a double-edged sword.
    Her feet go down to death; her steps lead straight to the grave. For she cares nothing about the path to life.
    She staggers down a crooked trail and doesn’t realize it. So now, my sons, listen to me.
    Never stray from what I am about to say:
    Stay away from her! Don’t go near the door of her house!
    If you do, you will lose your honor and will lose to merciless people all you have achieved.
    Strangers will consume your wealth, and someone else will enjoy the fruit of your labor.
    In the end you will groan in anguish when disease consumes your body.
    You will say, “How I hated discipline! If only I had not ignored all the warnings!
    Oh, why didn’t I listen to my teachers? Why didn’t I pay attention to my instructors?
    I have come to the brink of utter ruin,and now I must face public disgrace.”

    Proverbs 5. New Living Translation from the Holy Bible.

    I am not too religious but I had to dig out this portion in-order for us to learn something.

    Welcome back Val, I thought you had abandoned us. Once more, welcome back. . . .
