My fiance 💞💞
Episode 17 ❤
Kingsley could not believe what he was hearing.Rita was pregnant?He had just come back five days ago and nothing ever happened between them.’What exactly was she doing when I was not around?’Kingsley asked himself.
Kingsley:Doctor what did you say happened to my wife?
Doctor:Your wife is pregnant sir.
Kingsley:I don’t think you are holding my wife test results maybe you got it mixed up.
Doctor:Sir nothing of such has ever happened in this hosital before.The result shows that she is 1 week pregnant.
Kingsley collected the result,looked at it to confirm but it was still the same thing.
Mr Williams :What is it Kingsley?
Kingsley handed the paper to his father,he just couldn’t believe it;his fiance whom he had so much trusted had betrayed him.
The whole people there(families and friends) started passing the result around;they were all dumbstruck on seeing it.
Mr Williams: This is unbelievable.
* * * *
Rita had woken up about an hour ago but she knew she better not step out of the room for now;she had heard the nurses congratulating her about her getting pregnant.
‘What was this all about?’She asked herself.How could she be pregnant?This was not possible.1 week pregnant!!!She had broken up with Vincent 2weeks ago so what was this all about?
* * * *
I opened my eyes and I looked around;I could see that the room I was in was fully occupied although I could not see those who were
“Vincent where is Clara?”
“Clara…….Clara……..”I said; my memory was just coming back fully,I had to find Clara.I tried to stand up but they all quickly held me down telling me I was too weak to go anywhere. Clara was in some sort of danger I could not really point out but I had the feeling she was in danger.
* * * * *
Clara opened her eyes gradually and looked around her;she was in a beautifully decorated room__typical girl room.She looked around then she saw a lady standing in front of the mirror;the lady was tall,lights complexioned and beautiful (she only saw that when the lady turned to face her).
“Hello”The lady said.She had such a sweet and angelic voice but………………..Clara tried to move but she was unable to move;she looked down at herself and saw that she had been tied to the chair she was sitting on.
Clara:What do you want from me?
Lady:Nothing really.Anyway am Benita.
Clara:I don’t need your name,just let me go and I will give you whatever you ask for.
Benita: Really? By the way,what I need from you is something you can
Clara:Then let me know me know what it is.
Benita:My fiance Sam
Episode 18 ❤
“Wha……….wha……….what are you saying?”Clara stammered.
Benita:You think am lying.
She went to a drawer;probably her drawer and brought out an album.
“You think am lying,take a look at this”Benita said opening the album roughly in front of Clara.
Benita: You can see for yourself, right? Clara I don’t want you to get hurt.
Benita:As long as I want something, I don’t hesitate in using violence to get it. I have been watching you for the past 3 weeks; I was watching your every move,I thought you would quit on time but no;you continued up till this stage.And you even got a friend injured.
The last sentence got Clara;she had totally forgotten about Vincent because of the crisis she was in.
Clara:If anything happens to him,I won’t take it easy with you.
Benita:Really?Anyway if he is someone that is really strong,he will be perfectly fine,I promise you that but why are you so concerned about him?
Clara:What do you have to do with that?
Benita:Miss Michaels you are really funny.You think I don’t know you are still in love with your ex, Vincent?
Clara:What are you insinuating?
Benita:I know you are just trying to get over Vincent but I don’t think you ever will.So you see,there is no need to prolong our discussion, just make one call to Sam;tell him it is over between the both of you and you are free to go home.
Clara looked at Benita with an angry face but to be sincere,she was saying the truth;she was still in love with Vincent,a part of her wanted to spend the rest of her life with him but………
Clara:How am I sure you are going to let me go if I say what you want me to?
Benita loosed the rope she used to tie Clara.
Benita:Am sorry for tying you down for too long.
“You can have your phone”Benita said handing Clara her phone.
* * * *
Kingsley:Rita what explanation do you have to make for your dirty acts?
Rita:Please am really sorry I didn’t tell,I was raped.
Kingsley: What?By who?
Kingsley:Where did it happen?
Rita:I was coming from somewhere then they stopped me on the road, I thought maybe they were police then they…….they…….
Kingsley started laughing and Rita was startled.
‘Why was he laughing?’Rita thought
Kingsley:You think am a fool, right?You think am going to believe your cock and bull story? Get out of here before I do something I may end up regretting.
Rita:Kingsley am sorry,I………….
“Get out”Kingsley barked at her.
Rita knew she had lost so she walked away dejectedly.
* * * * *
“Where is Clara?”Sam asked me.
What type of dumb question was he asking?
“Young man where have you put Clara”He asked again.
I looked at him;am sure this guy is not normal.
Me:Frank please let me have my phone.
I collected my phone from Frank and as I was about to dial a friend’s number ;a detective,he snatched my phone and threw it on the floor.I was speechless, I wanted to beat him to pulp but the little pain I was still feeling on my stomach made me decide against that.
Sam:Where did you hide Clara?
Me: Young man the question you are asking me does not have an answer because I don’t know about her kidnapping.
Sam:You are such a bloody liar.
Me:If I orchestrated everything,do you expect me to be lying on this bed this minute?
Sam:Am not a fool.I know this is part of your game
Me:For me to get shot?
Sam:Hey stop talking about getting shot,everyone here knows you were shot with a mere rubber bullet.
What was this guy saying? I looked at everyone but they just stared back at me.It means I was really shot with a rubber bullet.
Me:But at least I got injured in the midst of this whole thing.
Sam:Oh come on.It is only skin deep.
Me:So you wanted me dead?
Sam:I don’t care if you die or not but it would have been better if you did.
Me:Are you afraid of me because you know your wife-to-be is still in love with me.Most of the people there were shocked; they didn’t know who I am.Sam got furious and immediately he grabbed my clothes.
Frank:Guys take it easy. We are still looking for a way to locate Clara and you guys can’t cooperate together,what is all this?
Just then,a call came in.
Episode 19 ❤
I looked at my phone on the floor;I wasn’t expecting any call but as I picked it up,the call ended___it was a flashing.I checked the caller but the number was hidden.
Just then,Sam phone rang and as he was about to pick it,the call ended. It was also a flashing from a hidden number.
Frank:Guys what do you suggest because am 100% sure it is Clara abductors who are trying to talk to you.
I looked at Sam;the dummy was out of ideas.
Me:Maybe I should go to John’s office,he might be able to trace the location of the caller.
Frank:Good idea but let me go in your place, you are not too okay to stress yourself.
“Am perfectly fine”I said and tried to stand up but……..damn, the pain was much. This is definitely not a rubber bullet.
Frank left with Sam;he had really insisted that he had to go because the person we are talking about was his wife-to-be.Everyone started leaving the room one by one till I was left alone.Having nothing to do,I drifted slowly into sleep.
* * * *
Clara dialed the number and as she was about to place her phone on loudspeaker, she saw that she had mistakenly dialed Vincent’s number,so she quickly ended the call.
Benita:What is it? Why did you end the call?
Clara:I dialed the wrong number.
Benita:Really?You should have told me you don’t know the number off-hand.
“Don’t worry,let me help you with that”Benita said and collected Clara’s phone,dialed Sam’s number and as the call rang once,Clara snatched the phone from her and disconnected the call.
Benita:Hey why did you do that?
Clara:I need to be sure before I take the wrong step.
Benita:What else do you want to know or see before you really know that he is chosen?
Clara:I need to hear it from him before I finally believe.
Benita:Then you can make a call to him.
Clara:No,this should be a face to face discussion and I will also need some of those pictures.
Benita:So Clara you are trying to tell me you want to leave here.
Clara:Yes but am not running away
Benita:You even dare not.But just to let you know, cv fashions located at…………….
Clara:I know you know all those craps
Benita:But you don’t I have some men watching over it.Just a call and boom………that magnificent structure goes down, it is going to be a great news but anyway,I know none of us want this to happen,so no double crossing.
Clara:This obsession won’t get you anywhere.
Benita: I think we are both the same thing, you know why;you are also obsessed with Vincent.
Benita:Then what made you leave your wedding to see Vincent?
Benita:I know you won’t say why but I know why.Anyway stop delaying yourself,your family are waiting for you. But before you go,I prepared something for you.
Benita had brought out a tiny mouthpiece capable of staying at the back of the teeth(that was where she put it) and another tiny one which serves as earpiece which could be worn as earring.
Benita:I really want to hear his voice, okay?
Clara:Where is Vincent?
Benita:In the hospital of course.
Clara:I know that is where he should be after what you did to him.Am asking about the particular hospital he is in.
Benita:How am I supposed to know?Did I take him to the hospital?But anyway,thank God I know where he is.
Benita:Why are you so corcerned about him if you really don’t love him?
Clara:He is a friend
Benita:Oh I forgot but why is your company name is still CV if you have gotten over him?
Clara: You really expect me to change my brand name which is already gaining ground in the international market just like that,it is possible?.
Benita:Wow I really like your business-sense but that is for another day.You had better get to where you are going on time.
* * * * * *
Rita:Dad please am sorry.
Mr Collins:Get out of this house and don’t ever show up in this house.
Her own biological father was disowning her,she really did not know how it happened; 1 week pregnant but she broke up with Vince 2 weeks ago and………….and…………….and………………it came back to her.
1 week ago
Rita sat in the midst of her friends talking;her fiance was coming back the next day.
Lizzy:Hey baby doll,you know your fiance is coming back tomorrow and all the freedom will soon be over.
Rita:For where? I will still continue enjoying myself the way I used to.
Joyce:Be deceiving yourself
Kate: You had better drink to the fullest today because only God knows when you will get the chance once you are married.
They had started drinking till they got drunk.
Kate:Baby doll you know at times like this when you are about to get married,you……………….you know…………..with………
Rita: Am not interested.
Lizzy: A lie,you not get mind.
Rita:Don’t bring out the devil in me.
Kate:Let it come out
Rita took her phone,looked her contact list;there was no one she could call.
Lizzy:We are waiting.
Rita:I don’t see anybody.
Kate:And all this fresh fish inside here ?
Kate:My girl you are a learner.
Kate stood up and went to some guys who were having fun opposite them.
Kate:Who is up for twosome?
The guys;about 5 in number looked at her immediately.
Four of them shot a look at the last one;it seems he was the capable one.
And that was how she got fucked flesh to flesh by this guy she didn’t know.
Back to present
Rita stood up from where she sat,she was going to look for this guy;thank God she remember his face.Even though she was too drunk,she still always remember all that happened when she was in her drunken state.
* * * *
I woke up after about 3 hours later,thank God I was feeling a little bit better.I looked at the little table beside my bed and I found a flower.Who could have put that there?I picked it up and and I was about putting it against my nose,Clara came in.
Clara:Oh you are awake
She ran to me and gave me a warm hug
Clara:Are you okay now?
Me:Ye……yes.When did you get back?How did you come back?Are you okay?
Clara:As you can see am totally okay.
Me:Has any other person seen you?
Me:You should call them,they have all been worried.
As she brought out her phone to call her parents first,Sam and Frank rushed in.
On seeing Clara,Sam rushed to her and hugged her tightly,I am not sure if it was sincere or he did it to make me jealous.
Sam:Clara are you okay?Are you hurt anywhere?
Clara:Am perfectly okay
Sam:The kidnappers,do you know where they kept you?How did you manage to escape?
Clara:Sam take it easy.Benita sent a message to you.
Sam: Be……. be……….. be…………….Benita.Who is Benita?
He was shocked to hear that name,what in the name of God is happening here?
“The girl in the picture”Clara said and brought out some pictures which she gave to the three of us.
Sam:How………….how did you get this pictures?
Clara: Your business is not to question me about how I got the pictures but instead, tell me who she is to you.
There was silence in the room for about 2 minutes.
Sam:She is my ex
Clara:Really?Sam I trusted you but I can see that you are worse than…………..you didn’t even tell me you were once engaged.
Sam:En…….en…………you didn’t meet with Benita,did you?
Clara:I guess there is a lot you are hiding from me.
Sam:Am really not hiding things from you.Clara,Benita and I broke up before I started dating you.Clara am saying the truth .Please don’t do this to me
Clara:I need to hear from Benita that you guys have broken up for real.
Sam:Is that all you need?
Sam:Then I will get it.
Sam left the room and Clara sat on the bed,she was heartbroken;I looked at her face,it was a pity I threw her away out of stupidity but anyway I regret it now and I have learnt my lesson.
I hugged Clara;I knew she needed a little bit of comfort.How I wish I could get a second chance to make things better?
“Clara will you give me a second chance?I promise to make everything better”I blurted out without even thinking;I had said that unwillingly but now Clara was looking straight into my eyes.
Could it be a yes?
Episode 20 ❤
“Clara will you give me a second chance?.
I promise to make everything better”I blurted out without even thinking;I had said that unwillingly but now Clara was looking straight into my eyes.Could it be a yes?.
Clara: Vince………I……..I think you should still rest,you shouldn’t be stressing yourself a lot.
She was avoiding my proposal; she was still in love with me otherwise she would have said no immediately. I smiled and rested my back on the bed;I had a 70% possiility of getting her back into my life as long as things go wrong for Sam.
* * * * *
Angelina:I thought you said you’ve gotten over him
Clara:What are you talking about?
Clara:What about him?
Angelina:I heard everything
Clara:Stop talking about that
Angelina:I know you still love Vincent
“Really”She said showing Angelina the ring on her finger;the ring Sam had proposed to her with.
Angelina:I know you are just forcing yourself to believe that you have gotten over Vincent but deep down in your heart,you still love Vincent so much that you will do anything for him.
Clara:Angel I think you have been watching zeeworld too much these days.
Angelina:Say whatever you want but I know what am saying is the truth.
Clara:My ears are aching
They both laughed together before discussing other topics of interest.
* * * * * * *
“Benita…………Benita……….Benita”Sam shouted as he entered Benita’s house.
Normally,the security guards at Benita’s house would have thrown anybody creating such nuisance out of the compound without Benita even ordering it but due to who he was to her,they dare not do anything.
Benita:Hey Sam what a pleasant surprise!
Sam:What type of stupid game are playing this time around?Do you……………..
Benita:Hey take it slowly.Is that a way to greet your fiancee who you have not seen for a long time?
Sam:Look Benita,am not interested in all these crazy stuffs you are saying,all I need is an explanation to why you kidnapped my wife on our wedding day.
Benita:Come on Sam,were you thinking I was going to let you get married to someone else while am still alive?It is not going to work.
Sam:Look Benita,it is over between me and you so don’t interfere with my life anymore.
Benita:Sam we are not done and we can never be done.I gave up my virginity because of you and you think you could just dump me like that?Never……..it is never going to happen that way.
Sam:Benita we are not made for each other,don’t let us continue dragging this,let us call it a wrap.
Benita: Sam stop deceiving yourself, this girl you are totally in love with does not have any feeling for you.
Sam:(Laughs)You could have a better trick…………..
Benita:So now you think this is a trick. Anyway incase you don’t know,a guy proposed to your wife; although wife-to-be to me few minutes ago and the guy even happened to be her ex.
Sam:(Sarcastically) Really?Continue this tale,am really enjoying it.
Benita:You may think it is a tale but that is the truth.I have all what you guys have been saying with Clara recorded,I knew you were coming here so you being here is not a suprise to me.
Sam:You are making me laugh
Benita:You can confirm it from Clara.
* * * * *
Rita had done a lot investigation trying to find out the name of the guy who fucked her and her friend the other night although it was stressful but finally her stress paid off;she found his name and a lot of detail about him;she had to find this guy today no matter what,his face looks familiar but she could not say where she had seen him before.Could it be at the hospital?No,it wasn’t there but she was really not sure.She dressed up and went out to look for the guy.
* * *
Sam:Hello Clara can you meet me at club High,we have to talk.
Clara:No problem I will be there.
Clara hung up and sighed heavily.
Angelina:What is it?
Clara:He said I should come to meet him at club High
Frank:Are you sure you will be okay going alone?
Angelina:I think it will be better if I……………
Frank:If we follow her.I can’t let you two go alone
“Neither can I” I said as I joined them at the reception.
Clara:Vince what are you doing here?You shouldn’t be walking around,you are still in pain.
Me:Am okay,you don’t need to worry about me.So, shall we?
Frank:I have not told you that you are discharged so I don’t know where you are going?
Me:Come on let’s go
30 minutes later
We got there faster than Sam but a few seconds faster.
Sam:I don’t see a reason why all of should be here when……….
Angelina:You are not to be trusted
Sam:I don’t really have any…………..
“So were you planning on starting the party without me”A voice called out and everybody faced the direction the voice was coming from.
Sam:Benita what are you doing here?
Benita:Came to support you.
Sam:Benita………can I have a minute with you
Sam:(To us)A minute please
Sam and the lady Clara had just called Benita left and went to a corner for a brief meeting.
Angelina:She does not look like someone capable of kidnapping.
Clara:I don’t think she’s really a bad person,her obsession with Sam is what is driving her to do what she is doing.
Me:She looks really beautiful.
Clara looked at me but did not say anything;but the look on her face shows that she was jealous,just what I had wanted to see.
* * * * *
Rita was going to the house of the guy who was responsible for her pregnancy when she saw him entering somewhere.She packed her car and followed him.He was with some people but that was none of her business.She entered after him but as she entered she lost him.
‘Where could he be?’She asked herself before she finally saw him;it looked as if he was in a meeting but her life was more important than that.She started walking towards him not minding all the eyes on her;she was walking too fast.
But then as she was about to get there, she saw Vincent and immediately she froze.
‘What is he doing here?’
As Rita turned to go back,Vincent called her.
Episode 21 ❤
After calling her,I started wondering why I had called her.I had not really wanted to see her again after the breakup but here we are seeing each other again.
She starting walking towards us or should I say me.She was looking haggard,I wanted to laugh but i quickly restrained myself.
“Hello” She said as she got to where we all stood.I don’t know if the greeting was directed to me or all of us but I don’t care anyway.
Everyone of them started looking at me;I knew they were expecting me to talk but instead I just stood mute.
When the silence got frustrating,Rita finally broke the silence.
Rita:Vince I know you must heard of everything I have been going through these past few days and you must be happy about it.
Rita stopped talking and it was as if she was thinking of what to say next.But to be sincere,I was happy she was suffering right now,I had heard she was pregnant and………….and…………if she is here,could it be that she came to……….no way that was happening.
Rita:By the way, I know you must have heard I am pregnant.
My heart skipped a beat,why was she telling me?God don’t let me be responsible.
“So who is responsible?” I asked her with my heart beating wildly against my rib cage.
Rita:That is why I am here.
I felt like fainting, God let what am thinking of be a lie. Everyone were already looking at me,I could see Sam already smiling.
“You are responsible” Rita said pointing to me…………….no…………
to the most unexpected person;Sam.
Sam froze and I was happy and surprised at the same time.
Happy because I was not responsible for the pregnancy and surprised because I didn’t even know Sam and Rita knew each other not to talk of having sex together.
Sam:Young lady you must be drunk
Sam:Then you must be daydreaming.
Rita:I wish I am
Benita:Sam what is happening?
Sam:I……I…….I don’t know
Rita: Then let me explain how it all happened in case you have forgotten.
* * * *
Rita had told a quite crazy story;although she was feeling humiliated during the whole period she was narrating the whole story,the whole story had made her look like a cheap slut;she felt it was necessary to avoid giving birth to a bastard.
Benita:I can’t believe all these.Sam you are so shameless but anyway I don’t blame you, if not those useless girls who lured you into it.By the way Miss Rita,my fiance is not accepting that bastard you are carrying in your stomach so you had better dispose it off.
Rita: Hello Miss that is not possible
Benita:Then do whatever you want with it.
Rita:He is the owner of this baby in my womb
Benita:What proof do you have to back that up?
Rita:He knows he is responsible so……….
Clara:Enough of all these rubbish.You guys are attracting a lot of people.
The two women had stopped shouting but were still looking at each other angrily.
Clara:Look Sam it is over between me and you.
We all stepped out of the club,I felt happy;I guess I might get another chance.
“Clara would you give me a second chance” I asked as we walked to our car.
She stared at me the same way she had stared at me at the hospital, was she going to ignore again?.
* * * *
I woke in the morning feeling excited, I stretched,stood up before taking a look at the bed.On the bed was my wife,Clara;we got married about 2 months ago and she is now pregnant with our first child.
A lot happened after we left the club that day, first the two ladies had later gotten involved in a fight but no one got injured.A day later,the news came in;Rita had lost the pregnancy,maybe it was due to the fight but all we heard was that it was miscarriage.After the incident,the two ladies were still at each other throat because of nothing in particular.2 weeks later,another news came in;Rita’s death.She was said to have died from an accident but I never really bought it because I knew Benita could do something like that but no finger was pointed at her.
The last news which came in was the engagement of Frank and Angelina.I was happy Frank was finally ready to settle down and he got a good girl.
I looked down at my wife again and smiled,thank God I didn’t lose her totally.I was now a happy man.
