Their is always a point in ones life when
everything looks up and you can see
everything finally falling into place.
My life was finally falling into place; I have
a good job and a smiling bank account, My
marriage plans are on the way and i feel
she is the right one, and most of all
Amanda haven’t being active since my
marriage plans was revealed.
It seems marriage was really the solution to
all this lustful shenanigans.
My marriage plans with Chioma are finally
taking shape, the preparations were
flawless and expectations were very high.
The date for the wine carrying has already
Jessy as usual was on the fore-front of
This was one of those times i wish Mama
was here to see the man i have grown into,
though i can still make out a little reflection
of mama in Jessy and somehow it bridged
Twilight approached slowly, a dim orange
sun dazzled the sky with an orange
coloured sky spectacle.
I sat on plastic beach chair having returned
from the office an hour ago. the weather
was just perfect and the whole scenario
I was reading through the pages of Coolval
Magazine, which had a page about my
I have read that particular page countless
times yet i still don’t seem to have enough
of it already. The picture of I and Chioma
used on it was really superb.
A glass of blood shot red wine stood lazily
on a little side stool beside me with the
bottle towering over it. It was a very
peaceful evening made better by the reality
of my marriage coming up in a couple of
My phone rang out with a shuddering
shriek, from the ringtone playing “From this
moment by shania twain” it was certainly
my fiancee calling.
Picking up my phone, i sweeping smile
rushed across my face looking at her a
picture of her on the screen; those
sparkling eyes, perky foreign-like nose and
pouted mouth. Truly she was a blessing.
“Hello my love” I sang into the mouth piece
working my lips into a grin.
“You b—–d!” A voice yelled from the other
side of the phone.
My head fell blank, who was this and what
is going on.
“Devil, you deceived me” The voice came
again now it was becoming clear and
Chioma was crying and at the same time
hurling insults at me and for what exactly i
have no idea.
“Baby what is…….” The line went dead
before i could roll out my sentence
throwing me into a state of universal
confusion, panic and shock.
“What exactly was happening” I cursed
under my breathe, my whole body trembled
even my breathe was shaky.
I dialed Chioma’s number many times and
she kept rejecting the calls and finally
switched off her phone, which tripled my
fear and confusion.
A beep on my phone flew my heart a mile
away and back. A message icon clearly
showed on my notification feed but my
heart trembled too much to touch it, my
heart already melted into my stomach.
Mustering up some emergency courage, i
opened the notification feed and the name
‘Amanda’ registered into my brain.
I opened the message hastily, this was the
a first since i came back from U.K.
A sudden rush of warm sweat rushed down
my face, washing down down by bare
chest. Only 9 words were visible on the
message body and just a look of those
words sent a wave-like rush of fear surged
through my body as the words sipped in.
“I told you i had a surprise for you” My
fingers cramped as my gaze fixed on the
message that displayed on my phone.
My phone gave out another resounding
ring, this time it was Chioma’s mum calling.
Even the ring of my phone spell trouble.
I mopped at my phone, watching the rings
The confusion i felt was unlike anything i
have ever felt in this world.
“Hello Ma! Good evening!” I uttered weakly
on picking the call. A mixture of curiosity to
know what exactly is going on and fear at
the thought of what it might be.
“Hey hey hey, Hold your greetings!”
Chioma’s mother yelled from the other side
of the phone, am sure as an evangelist she
must use such tones a lot to cast out
“What is going on ma?” I intoned, the fear
in my shaky tone have gave away what my
“I said hold you smelly trap there” she
yelled again, this time more aggressive.
“So you have a son and you have kept it
secret from my daughter all this while?!!” I
didnt know if she meant this to be question
or just a remark.
“What?” I blurted out, not so sure how it
escaped my mouth.
“Shut up, the lady you had a child with
came herself to this house and she and
chioma even knows each other, and to say
the child is already up to 5years old is
worse, Johny you are a monster”
“What?, I dont understand you ma. What
are you talking about?” My fear and
confusion now was out of the world, little
beads of tears already surged at the back
of my head.
“You deceived my daughter but you had
another son all this while, and the lady is
even living in your house as….”
“Ok dear its ok give me the phone” A
strong baritone voice interrupted her still
from the other part of the phone, i am sure
it was Chioma’s father.
“Hello” His voice rang out from the ear
piece of my phone, my thumping heart
skipped 2 beats. Could still make out faint
yelling voice of Chioma’s mum in the
“Good evening sir” I said weakly stressing
The line went silent for a little more than 10
seconds, i looked at my screen and the call
was still on, i knew he just kept silent
purposely and each passing second the
silence lasted pieced through my heart like
a sharp blade.
“Young Man, I’m highly disappointed in
The line went dead.
