A NEW BEGINNING
Roy got prepared, he went to work, he open the gate and walked in, he met 3 police men, “what are they doing here” he asked himself.
Suddenly he heard Mr Johnson scream “that’s him over there, that’s the bagger that tried to take advantage of my daughter.”
He didn’t nee-d a soothsayer to tell him Mr Johnson was referring to him, he swiftly turned and behold Mr Johnson, Mrs Naomi and Sandra tears could be perceptibly seen on Sandra eyes she was begging her dad but Mr Johnson paid deaf ear to her pleads.
” young man you are un-der arrest” one of the police said to Roy.
He couldn’t help but thought of the crime he had committed, what will they be charging him for, having an affair with his boss daughter?.
They bundle him to their Van and zoomed off.
“Dad you don’t have to do that ” Sandra scream at her father.
” your father is doing the right thing, is for your own good “her mother ch!pped in while she gave her a lethal look.
She knew her mother was the one that planted the idea in her father head, she alone was capable thinking such barbaric act.
“your mother is right dear, is for your own good and Roy betrayed my trust, he must pay dearly for it, your wedding with lex is just two weeks from now, you should start thinking about the wedding not that rascal. “her said in a husky voice.
” there is no way I will marry lex I don’t love him and I never will. why can’t I marry the man of my choice, “Sandra wailed.
” see young lady your marriage with lex is not optional but a priority, unless you never want to see Roy again ” her dad threatened, While she stared at her dad in awe.
” what do you mean by that “Sandra asked in disbelief.
” I can make you not see Roy again if you chose to disobey me, if you truly love Roy as you claim, I will advised you marry lex is for your good ” her father answered and left
” think about what your dad said” her mum advised and patted her on her back.
Sandra was taking aback as she thought of what her dad said that she would not see Roy again if she refused to marry lex. “does he mean he will kill him or is there anyway to get rid of someone without murdering him? . She questioned herself. she was in quandary if she should marry lex or go for Roy damming her father’s threat.
Roy was pushed down to the cell, he fall to the floor,.
“officer!!! ” he scream calling the police officer that pushed him to the floor.
” see them no dey shout for here ” someone said from behind, he swiftly turned and behold a group of guys that sat on the floor, the face of the guys s£nt cold shiver down his spine.
” sorry “he apologized while they all bur-sted into laughter.
” who you dey tell sorry, common kneel down there make you beg capon “one of the guys spoke his voice was as thick as weed, his face was rou-gh full of scars.
” They say make you kneel down you dey claim jagaban abi?” the guy asked, he stood up from where he sat and went to Roy he gave him a resounding [email protected] but not just any [email protected] but the [email protected] of a cultists, Roy staggered back and subsequently [email protected] on the floor.. While they all bur-sted into hysterical laughter.
“now beg the capon ” the guy spoke in a command tone.
Roy quic-kly knelt down and faced the guy who he as-sumed is the capon.
” bros abeg no vexe” Roy pleaded and faced the scaring looking guy. He saw someone that was fanning him..
“emeka ” the capon called..
” sir!!! ” the guy that was fanning the capon replied tiredly.
” give that guy the hand fan, you don try, we don get new member “the capon said while emeka heaved a sigh of relief.
” thank you ” emeka said and handed Roy the hand fan. He knew if he reject it will surely result to the beaten of his life, he had no choice than to collect it.
This is where love had landed him….
Sandra was downcast, Roy was in prison just because of her, she felt guilty for being the reason Roy was put behind bars. She pleaded with her dad but he only tell her if she would agree to marry lex that Roy would be set free. She didn’t love lex, she can’t marry him, Roy was the love of her life, she hated her dad for what he did to Roy.
Mr Williams and Nina went to Roy place of work, they haven’t seen him in weeks and his number was not going throu-gh, they decide to visit him to know if he is okay.
They nock at the gate, about few minutes later the gateman opens the gate..
“who are you looking for “the gateman asked.
” we [email protected]£ to see Roy” Nina replied.
Sandra who sighted the people at the gate quic-kly called the gateman ..
“who are they looking for ” Sandra asked.
” they say they are looking for Roy “Peter the gateman replied while Sandra walked to the gate..
” good afternoon “Sandra greeted as he approached them.
” afternoon!, I am Nina Roy’s girlfriend and this is Mr Williams his dad, we are here to see Roy “Nina said while Sandra drew back in disbelief.” so Roy had a girlfriend “she thought to herself
” do you say you are his girlfriend” Sandra asked.
“yeah anything “Nina asked with a raise of eyebrow. She could see the shock on Sandra’s face.
” where is Roy “Mr Williams asked after minutes of silent.
” when did you guys started [email protected]!ng? ” Sandra asked ignoring Mr Williams question.
” since two month now, and I am even pregnant for him “Nina said this time not only Sandra was shock but Mr Williams also.
” pregnant? ” Mr Williams asked amidst incredulity. While sandra was dumbfounded.
” how could he be a cheat?,” she asked herself, he was angry and Confused, the only guy she had ever loved was a hypocrite, a cheat and a liar.
“Roy is in prison my dad locked him up ” Sandra replied without any feeling of sympathy, her mind had suddenly [email protected]£ cold.
” why!! ” they both asked in unison with their voices full of surprise.
” my dad found out we were having an affairs, ” Sandra replied.
” Roy was [email protected]!ngyou ” Nina asked in astonishment.
” yeah, he never spoke of you, I never knew he was such a cheat and a liar. “Sandra answered.
” Is your dad in “Mr Williams asked ignoring the girls and their cold stares.
” No! but I will direct you to where he was locked up, ” Sandra replied giving the man the address to Roy’s station.
They hurriedly left Sandra not until Nina gave her a lethal look.
Sandra could not help but whimper as she thought of Roy, how she had been used.
She couldn’t believe the gentle Roy was capable of using her, she hated herself for falling for him.. She made up her mind to marry lex after all there was no hope with Roy because he had gotten someone pregnant.
A NEW BEGINNING
Roy was in prison, he had been in prison for the past one week, he had become the shadows of himself.
The guys in prison had thor0ûghly dealt with him, his face was full of scars due to the beating he received in the hands of his fellow prisoners.
“hey Roy someone is looking for you” one of the police man said to Roy while stared at him with hope, this was the first time someone would be looking for him in the past 1 week he had been in prison.
Mr William and Nina went to Roy cell, they stared at Roy with a dejected look, he had change, the handsome Roy was looking so lean and unkept, he truly look like a prisoner.
” hey love how have you been ” Nina said with concern well written on her face.
” I am fine ” Roy replied gloomily.
” what happened ” Mr Williams asked.
” my boss kept me here for having an affair with his daughter ” Roy explained starring at Nina who was indifferent she had alre-ady heard the news from Sandra so she was not surprised.
” We’ve come to bail you ” Mr Williams said while Roy shook his head gloomily,
“you can’t bail me, he had bribe the police to denied me bail, him alone could Set me free from this enigma .” Roy explained to them shocking them with his words.
” we have to go plead with him, that’s our only option ” Mr William said.
” I don’t think he will listen to you, ” Roy replied.
” we have to try, we can’t leave you, only one week you’ve stayed here you are looking so dishevelled “Mr Williams said.. Nina could not break the news to Roy she felt pity for him.
” by the way Nina told me she is pregnant for you ” Mr Williams said as they were about taking their leaves .
Roy was dumbfounded he was shock to reply, his mind suddenly drifted to the day he find himself unclad on her be-d, he had knew Nina for years and he knew for sure that she can’t lie to him..
He let it sl!paway , he had more problems to face, first he had to find a way to re-move from this cell.
“we will be heading to Sandra dad house to go plead with him, plea-se take care of yourself, ” Nina said while Roy nodded.
” are you truly carrying my child? ” Roy asked steering at her.
” yes ” Nina replied..
” I love you Roy and I will do anything to get you out of this disgusting place ” Nina said with a reas-suring smile.
They left Roy who was battling with his thought, he couldn’t help but thought how his life would be after he left this pit hole , Nina is now pregnant for him, he knew the chances of being with Sandra is now slim, he thought of Sandra, she had not come to visit him since her dad put him behind bars.
Mr William and Nina went to Sandra father’s house in other to plead with him, him alone could get Roy out of here .
They nock at the gate while the gateman open the gate.
“who are you looking for” he asked scrutinising them.
“we are looking for Mr Johnson ” Mr Williams replied.
about 15 minutes the gateman open the gate and ushered them in, they walked to the sitting room with the gateman leading the way. They met Mr Johnson who sat down on the couch with his wife.
They greeted him while he asked them to sit.
” I know you [email protected]£ for Roy, the good thing is that I will be setting him free, due to my daughter pleads, she had finally agreed to marry the guy she is betrothed to, if not for her Roy would have rote in jail.. ” Mr Johnson said while Nina and Mr Williams heaved a sign of relief.
” thanks you sir ” Mr Williams muttered happily.
” don’t thank me, I wouldn’t have done it if it wasn’t for my daughter, and again, I don’t want to see Roy near my daughter, except he his re-ady to meet his end, what I did to him was just a ti-p in an ice bag. His salary would be transfer to his account, he no longer works here ” he explained.
” you can go to him, I had alre-ady called the DPO to re-lease him ” he added.
The next day Roy was emancipated, he had finally re-moved from the pit hole they called cell.
Mr Johnson had gave him a warning to stay away from his daughter except he is willing to die.
Roy in his own [email protected] was confused why Sandra never visited him.
He remembered Nina told him that they went to plead with Sandra’s dad, Maybe she told Sandra she was pregnant for him, he thought to himself. He knew he should st©p thinking about Sandra not because her father had warned him but because Nina is now pregnant for him, so he should start seeing her as his wife not his friend, but he didn’t love Nina, Sandra is the one he love, the way Nina got pregnant for him astound him, he never remember having S-x with her, he only find himself unclad on her be-d, he had knew Nina for a long time now, so he believe she would not lie to him and she showed him the result which made him believe that she was pregnant for him.
Sandra was downcast, she had finally agreed to marry lex, her dad had finally made her concede to his request, she knew she still had feelings for Roy but he got another lady pregnant, she couldn’t believe the gentle Roy was such a hypocrite.
She and lex were both sited on an eatery discussing
“Am glad you finally [email protected]£ back to your s-en-ses” lex said while she eyed him
“Am only doing this for my dad, because i never have a tiny feelings for you” she replied in a gruff voice.
“I don’t care if you don’t love me now, i only care that you are getting married to me because i know with time you will get to love me.” Lex sm-irked while Sandra gave him lethal look .
“In your dream, by the way i don’t want an extravagant wedding ” Sandra said while lex bur-sted into laughter.
“So you want a quite weeding”lex said sarcastically while she nodded.
“I am lex Jeffrey popularly known as Nigeria most successful young entrepreneur and you are expecting a quiet weeding from me, the whole world must hear about our wedding even queen Elizabeth would come” lex [email protected] hysterically.
” whatever” Sandra replied impishly.
“By the way i heard you were cheating on me, so who is he” lex asker.
There was no way she would tell me because he is a violent Person that could go any length just to prove a point.
“He is not someone you know”she replied while he shrugged in resignation.
” i dont even know what’s wrong with you, i am just glad you’ve come to your s-en-ses that i am the right one for you.” Lex said.
Nina could s-en-se Roy was not happy with the way things had turn out, he was looking dejected and disheveled like someone that was [email protected] ing his wife. She felt pity for him , her conscience was flooging her , but she had to do what she had do to keep the man she love…
She went to visit Vivian who was the mastermind behind the cartestrophic.
“How have you been” Vivian asked.
“I am kind of feeling guilty for telling him he is responsible for my pregnancy.” Nina said gloomily.
“Don’t be, you did what any reasonable girl will do to keep her man” Vivian replied.
“Since the past two days Roy had been so sad, he now looks like the shadows of himself, my conscience kept hunting me seeing him like that” Nina whimpered.
” telling him the truth you will deprive yourself of so many things, no man will want to to marry a woman who is pregnant for another person, Roy will abandon you , so plea-se erase the thought from your head” Vivian advised.
Nina saw s-en-se in what she said, telling Roy means loosing him, she made up her mind not to tell him .
