Frank: I came to realise that you stopped

coming home because of me.

Me: Says who?

Frank: Saying what my mind has being telling


Me: You’re wrong.

I lied.

Frank: Nne,I’m sorry for the last time.

I’ve come to realise that I can’t get everything

I want violently. You said you loved me and I

chased you away with my wrongs.

I’m willing to make things right. I promise

never to hurt you anymore.

He came closer to me and placed his left

hand on my shoulder.





“Give me a second chance baby and I’ll make

you the happiest lady . . . . . . . .

Me: Frank,its not about all that. I feel . . . . .

His phone rang,stopping me from saying my


Frank: What? Who? How dare he? I’m far

from Onitsha o. How do we do this thing

now?. . . . . . oya,arrange dem for one corner.

He hung up immediately.

Me: What is the problem?

Frank: My guy just called me. An enemy

group just invaded our territory..

” gbagam!” Jesus! He’s also a cultist? Chei.

I can’t describe how much I hated cultists

even ashamed of it. He was going to kill

people? And he still thinks I’ll agree to be his


I started walking myself to the school

compound. It was time I made up my mind

about the kind of people u needed in my life.


I got to school and there was Lawrence,

sitting beside the grotto which was looking

very beautiful. I stood there for a while but till

today,I can’t still remember if it was the

grotto or Lawrence that I was admiring.

He stood up and came to me,then he tapped


Law: Rose,are you alright?

Me: Ye . . .es. I’m fine

I stammered.

Law: Has he gone?

Me: Yes. He got a call from home. Law,this

place is looking heavenly. What did you do?

Law: Decorated it of course. My elder sister

taught me well. You know she’s a designer?

Me; You’re a darling. Thank you.

Law; Anything for you baby. So,tell me,you

knew he was coming right?

Me: I’m not aware. If he had told me,I would

not have come out

Law; Shuu! Why?

Me: I don’t like him..He smokes,drinks and is

also a cultist

Law: You’re kidding right?

Me: I’m not.

Frank; Please be careful around him OK?

Me: Thank you. Let’s go
