Omolara’s faith Episode 19 & 20
Lara smiled abs£nt mindedly at herself, its been
a month since Tony left, he’l be back soon.
“Can’t wait!” she said aloud to the empty room.
She decided to call him…
“Hello Baby?” Tony’s voice said from the other
“Good morning to you.”
“morning how do you do? Hope you sle-pt well?”
Tony asked.
“Not that well, and you?” she made a face as she
“same here, missing ya loads.” he laughed.
“So you’re coming back this weekend?”
“Nooo, the doctor said I should for two weeks
more.” Tony explained.
“Oooh” she gro-an ed.
“hey hey hey! Two weeks is just like two days, no
nee-d for that okay? I’ll be back soon. There are
many thing I’d like to show you!” he said
“Many things? Like?” she laughed
and on and on, their conversation went till the
door bell rang.
“Hey hold on! I’ll call ya later.” Lara said before
ending the call.
Deji was at the door.
“ah! Ore mi atata, my friend, welcome!” she
hvgged Deji.
“This one you are looking fresh ehn?” Deji
“You can say that again.” Lara giggled as she
served her friend.
“When is the hubby coming back now?” Deji
asked gently.
Lara was taken aback, Deji never referred to
Tony as ‘the hubby’ before,
“Errrm, i just called him on phone, he said next
two weeks..” she explained.
“Next two weeks!” Deji echoed after her, she
looked plea-sed by the information.
“Yea!” lara felt a strange feeling, she knew Deji
very well, that look on her face isn’t for nothing.
“Excuse me!” deji said as she made a call.
“Hello, Lady?” she said.
“The client should be in town in the next
fourteen days, yea, business should be cool!” she
smiled mischievously.
“Okay, bye, get all arrangements re-ady plea-se.”
she ended the call.
“The client? Next fourteen days?” Lara asked
“Yea, just some sort of business.” Deji avoided
her eyes.
“Business? What type?”
“Oooh, Lara plea-se! I didn’t come here for an
interview na!” she laughed.
“Okay” Lara sighed. Deji has been acting
strangely for some time now. She hope there
won’t be troubles.
“So tell me girlie! How’s Tony? His health?” Deji
shoved her pla-yfully.
Lara laughed, some how she felt more relaxed.
Lara was at the breakfast Table, when the
gateman c@m£ in to tell her, that a letter was
delivered for her.
She opened the envelope gingerly, she re-ad it
‘ peace of the most high God be upon you.
How’s your husbands health? I hope all is well.
I saw a revelation last night about you, I don’t
know if its a mere dream, or its a warning.
You just have to be careful about the way you do
things, you are surrounded by unfriendly friends.
There is danger lur-k-ing ahead.
May the good Lord see you throu-gh. Amen.
Pastor Wilson’
she re-ad and re-re-ad it again, what message is
he trying to pas-s across.
Danger? Unfriendly friends?
She felt shivers run down her spine.
“God see me throu-gh o.” she clasped her hands
in prayers.
Unfriendly friends? She thought. She’ve got a
few friends, just Deji.
Could it be Deji? No it can’t be!
“But Deji had been acting strangely now!” she
argued aloud.
She’ve been asking suspicious questions about
“Hmm!” she sighed aloud.
Just then her phone beeped. A text from Deji.
‘ hy bestie,
I’ll be travelling out of town, sorry I won’t be
around for the dinner with Tony as planned.
I’m really sorry.
My regards to Tony when he comes back.”
“Talk of the devil!” Lara eclaimed as she re-ad
the text.
She shook her head in suspicion.
Truly Deji is up to something, why would she
travel when she knew Tony is coming back that
Lara dressed and redressed her dress for the
twentieth time as she leaned aaginst the car
that brou-ght them.
She wore make up for that occasion, courtesy of
her mother-in-law.
She glanced her saphire wrist-watch, and shook
her head.
She wondered what’s keeping Tony, their plane
landed twenty minutes ago.
“Why is it taking Tony so long to come na!”
Amara complained as she shuffled from one foot
to another.
“Maybe something important.” Lara quipped.
“Hmm” c@m£ the gr-unt
“or maybe he’s shy!” she suggested again with a
pla-yful smile
“Shy? Tony lacks that characteristic o!” Amara
They both feel silent, as their eyes surveyed the
airport environment.
Just then….
“Holly Majolly!” Amara exclaimed.
“What?” Lara asked.
“Don’t look back!” Amara tried to hold her.
But it was too late, Lara’s eyes swung left and
right,then she spun round, everything around her
Tony was at a far end, locked in Sophia’s arm as
they k!$$£d ‘pas-sionately’
Lara shut her eyes momentarily, then re-opened
them, what she saw was real!
Her vision began to get blurred, she was inhaling
and exhaling sharply.
Tony saw them, pushed Sophia away and ran
hapilly towards them.
Lara saw him coming, on his own legs, no longer
on the wheel chair.
She wished, she wished he never got well.
She wished… She began to slump slowly.
“Lara…” Amara said nervously as she tried to
hold her.
But she pas-sed out.
