The unpredicted love 2 Episode 23 & 24

Jennifer summoned her mother when she c@m£ back to the house. She made her sit before her in front of the compound with Calista and the pastor.
“Mummy?” she began. “Who have you offended unlawfully?”
“What are you talking about my daughter?”
“Mummy, do you know what i have pas-sed throu-gh right from my secondary school because of your actions? I have been used by men, hurt emotionally and dumped all because of what you do to innocent people!” tears began to circle in her eyes.
“What are you talking about?” the mother was still inquisitive.
“Madam” the pastor began. “Your daughter is cursed by the people who you have unlawfully offended. She will never get married except God re-leases her from the curse. And you have to also give your life to Christ”
Mrs Mbakwe bec@m£ speechless looking at her daughter shed tears bitterly. She could feel her pains. She never wanted such life for her but here she was anguishing in pain.
“I never knew what i was doing will hurt you my daughter. plea-se, forgive me” tears ran down her eyes as she drew Jennifer closer.
“Are you re-ady to receive Jesus Christ now?” the pastor asked.
“Yes oh” she cried. The Pastor prayed for her and the fasting began…
Edwin returned but couldn’t believe his eyes, the room was well dressed and things arranged in order. He glanced at Melody who was smiling at him on the be-d and said, “Which law did you apply on this room?”
“The law of cleanliness” Melody replied still smiling.
“And what dose the law state?”
“The law states that cleanliness is next to Godliness and directly surprise people like Edwin who don’t give a clear explanation of where they go to before going”
Edwin smiled un-derstanding what she meant, so he met her on the be-d in away his head la-id on her th!ghs and said, “I’m sorry for not telling you where i was going”
“Apology can only be accepted if you tell me where you went to”
“Okay, i will tell you in one condition. In a condition that you close your eyes”
Melody smiled with her eyes closed anticipating to have a k!ssfrom him but she waited so long for that to happen but there was no reaction, then she asked, “What are you doing?”
“You can open your eyes now” Edwin said before she gradually opened her eyes. To her surprise, she saw a sparking ring before her then she held her che-st in surprise staring at it.
“plea-se, marry me” Edwin said from her th!ghs looking very serious.
“You are joking, right?” she asked.
“I’m not joking my love. plea-se, be the mother of my children. I love you so much”
Melody suddenly began to smile which got him worried. “Yes, i will marry you my love” she replied still smiling.
“Wow!” he jumped up and placed the ring in her f!nger then began to k!ssher in a way he was on t©p. He tried to undress her with the joy in him but Melody prevented him saying, “Remember the law of cleanliness”
“Yes, i remember. Cleanliness is next to Godliness and directly..”
“St©p” she interrupted him. “You have heard it. “Cleanliness is next to Godliness, so don’t defile this clean room with S-x. You have had enough of it. Jeez! Men! You guys will never get tired of S-x. Don’t worry, you will get tired in our matrimonial be-d”
“Which one is this be-d?” Edwin asked smiling.
“This is a bachelor’s be-d”
“Are you calling me bachelor?”
“Then who are you?”
“I’m a bachelor” he replied and they laughed.
Without Linda’s knowledge, Tochi went to Kingsley’s house for the very first time. She saw nob©dy but him sitting in front of the compound without a shi-t on. When she saw him, she withdrew her face from the attrac-tive muscular b©dy.
“plea-se, put on something abeg” she said, then Kingsley smiled and wore his singlet. “That’s how you tempt all these girls around here with this b©dy” she added and sat with him on the long bench.
“You are welcome” Kingsley said and suddenly frowned his face because he knew why she c@m£. So Tochi looked at him and said, “I know how you feel. It is always ha-rd to forgive someone like Linda in this situation. She is gradually breaking into two. You nee-d to see the emotional pains she is pas-sing throu-gh and how sorry she is. I know what she did is wrong but plea-se, show mercy to my only friend. She nee-ds you now more than ever. plea-se, i beg of you”
As Tochi explained, Kingsley la-id his head on the wall trying so ha-rd to withstand the tears which circled in his eyes.
“But why must Linda do this to me?” he asked bitterly. “What exactly do you want me to do now? She is pregnant for another man for goodness sake”
“She only nee-ds your forgiveness” Tochi replied.
“I’m sorry, i can’t do anything”
“plea-se, i beg you. Her father s£nt her out of the compound because of this. She couldn’t even sleep last night. She cried throu-ghout the night. plea-se, i beg you, she nee-ds someone to console her”
“I can’t do that, I’m sorry” kingsley went inside the house drying his tears while Tochi went home looking disappointed.
Kingsley la-id on the be-d remembering all the time he had with Linda in school. He sometimes smiled and giggled at some of the thought like when Linda gave Vivian a sl@p. He smiled at the first k!ssthey had and was moved to forgive her because his heart longs for nob©dy but her.
At the resident of Mrs Desmond who was not at home, Linda remained in Tochi’s room refusing to eat something and her eyes never ceased to shed tears.
“Will you always be like this?” Tochi pitied her feeling her eyes we-t with tears too. “plea-se, don’t hurt yourself because of this. I beg you in the name of God” she added. Just then, Kingsley c@m£..
Tochi averted her eyes from Linda immediately the sound c@m£ from the door. She couldn’t guess who the person was because nob©dy had ever knocked at her door. Her mother only opened it without knocking or knock and opens instantly. Was it Wisdom? No, Wisdom only go straight to the backyard and rather make himself known using his mouth than knocking. Sometime, he doesn’t even say a word but stands at the door until his pres£nce is noticed.
Tochi cracked the door opened. “Kingsley?” she dried her tears again and ru-bbe-d her hands on her black Sk-irt like a Tata.
Hearing the name, Kingsley, Linda sat up gazing at the door. She couldn’t see anyb©dy but Tochi. But when the door was opened wi-dely, she saw Kingsley gradually walking towards her. While Tochi stood at the door to take a look of what will happen.
“kingsley..” Linda paused.
“How can i stay when i know you are in pains?” Kingsley began. He stood beside the be-d staring at her. “If i dont forgive you who will i forgive? If i turn my back on you, definitely i I’m turning my heart and feelings down…”
Linda jumped up from the be-d and hvgged him crying uncontrollably. “I’m so sorry. plea-se, forgive me..”
“Is okay, i’ve forgiven you alre-ady” Kingsley held her ti-ghtly while she cried on his shoulder…
Wisdom and che-ster were together in the room-che-ster’s. It was no different from one of the rooms he entered when still in London, the electric white bulb, pumping be-d and pillows and other modern materials.
“Guy, you are lucky” Wisdom adjusted on the be-d wearing a light T-shi-t which matched his complexion. “Or should i say Esther is lucky?”
“We are both lucky” che-ster replied in front of a mirror. He adjusted his tie in a black suit then turned. “How do I look?”
“You look great. Now, i can say that Esther is the one lucky”
“Why, bro?”
“Because you are far more handsome” they grinned.
“You won’t believe how beautiful she is now” che-ster went back to the mirror but Wisdom remained quiet. “That reminds me, isn’t it time you propose to Tochi?”
che-ster turned as if the question was weird. “Yes, pro-po-se” he opened his eyes wi-dely.
“Calm down, bro. I will definitely do that”
“When? Until thy kingdom come? All these boys around will take her from you if you don’t act fast” he returned to the mirror again smiling at his own joke.
“Tochi can never fall for that” Wisdom boasted smiling too.
Linda minimized the rate of her tears. She sat side by side with Kingsley on the be-d. However, Tochi had gone out giving them some privacy.
“You know what?” Kingsley began. “I also have a confession to make. If i were to be a girl, i would probably be in your shoes now. So it doesn’t matter anymore. What matters now is after everything, we still love ourselves” he looked at her. “I still love you”
Linda stared at him but suddenly averted her eyes. “But what about the pregnancy? Should i ab-ort it?”
“No! Don’t, the owner will one day come for it. Don’t harm an innocent child” he hvgged her.
Calista had wedded alre-ady. Now it was che-ster’s wedding.
Jennifer, who was her bride’s maid, and her mother totally bec@m£ de-ep into the things of God.
The news was everywhere-television, news paper, social media: That the only son of Mr Silva was getting married to a daughter of Mr Godwin.
Everyb©dy was in the church-Tochi, the bride’s maid of Esther, Wisdom, the best-man of che-ster, Linda, kingsley, Jennifer, Calista and her husband, Edwin, Melody, even Mr Nelson, the principal and Mr Anuma who stood beside him admiring their handwork-bringing up the children academically. Mr Anuma adjusted his eyeglas-ses when the marriage kicked off. “I will enjoy this” he nodded his head.
Tochi and Wisdom occasionally glanced at each other when the priest was joining Esther and che-ster together. However, Jennifer noticed a fair handsome guy admiring her from a distant. She averted her eyes instantly when their eyes caught.
“You may now k!ssyour pride” the priest announced. Then che-ster slowly unveiled Esther and k!$$£d her. Everyb©dy began to cl@pped.
Kingsley glanced at Linda. He smiled at her and held her closer to himself as not to feel… outside the box.
“Better get prepared oh” Melody whispered to Edwin and they laughed.
The wedding c@m£ to an end. When the pride and the groom went home, everyb©dy, who knew Mr Anuma gathered around him outside the church feeling happy to see him once again. Even Mr Anuma was surprise to see how fat, tall matured and most of all, handsome and beautiful his students were.
“Sir, i miss you!”
“Yes, even your grammar!”
“And your mode of talking!”
“Even your dressing!” they all shouted and laughed.
“Look at you now!” Mr Anuma adjusted his eyeglas-ses and put his hand inside his pocket. “See how predominantly your bodies have squash unflin-chingly”
They laughed. Even Mr Anuma smiled at his own words. Just then, Jennifer noticed the guy coming to her..
Jennifer pretended as if he hadn’t seen the guy but she was f0rç£d to turn when he finally stood beside her as if he also knew who Mr Anuma was but he didn’t say anything when both glanced at each other and concentrated to Mr Anuma.
Vivian and Kingsley never dep@rted from Linda’s side.
“I’m seeing a lot of refurbishment on your faces” Mr Anuma continued. “This can wondrously make some boys unfl@ppable and philanthropically take you to the alter”
“Sir, when will you change from being a grammarian?” Jennifer asked.
“Until death do us ap@rt” he replied then they laughed again.
Mr Anuma entered his car and drove away. To him, it was actually fun to be with his best students. That was a feeling he would never forget.
“Stay away from nefarious activities” he had said before he left.
The guy turned to Jennifer. He was on suit as if he was the person wedding on that day.
“He’s so hilarious” he said looking at Jennifer with his hands in his pocket.
“Yes, he is” Jennifer replied.
Meanwhile, others were standing on twos at different angles discussing and reminding themselves about their old school lives. Calista occasionally glanced at Jennifer and the guy then smiled without anyb©dy noticing the cause.
Kingsley, Vivian and Linda, after they had some quality time went home together.
“Who is he?” the guy was still inquisitive.
“Oh, he’s our former grammarian” Jennifer smiled. She couldn’t look at his face because he was too handsome to look at, having attrac-tive beards round his cheek with dimples. “He’s our former teacher” she clarified.
“Okay, now i un-derstand” the guy stretched his hand forward. “I’m d!¢kson”
Jennifer glanced at his face and took his hand gently. “I’m Jennifer”
“I guess your wedding isn’t coming up soon. If it is, i will have to bribe the groom, postpone the wedding and kidnap you to the alter” they laughed at the joke.
“You are so funny!”
“Don’t mind me. Anyways, do you mind giving me your card?”
“I will rather have yours” Jennifer said as an afterthought then smiled.
d!¢kson handed his card to her and dep@rted before Jennifer moved closer to Calista. She said nothing until d!¢kson drove off. Just then, Melody c@m£ and hvgged them as old friends while James shook hands with Edwin.
“Girls!” Melody began. “Meet my fiance, Edwin Goodness!”
“Wow, I’m so happy for you!” Calista exclaimed.
“So, after writing waec in our school, you also decided to take one of our students. Is not fair oh! Their-ris God oh!” Jennifer sounded funny and they laughed.
It had been a great day. So great that none, even Linda remembered their past and pres£nt situation-if they had any. Jennifer had told Calista about d!¢kson.
“I think he’s nice” she had said.
“I saw how humble and funny he was, even though i didn’t hear your conversations. Girl, you are good to go!” Calista had concluded with laughter.
Now, it was more than 24hours d!¢kson had not been himself waiting patiently to hear Jennifer calling on the phone. Suddenly, his phone rang then he quic-kly picked it up.
“Hello, is Jennifer”
“God, i have been expecting your call”
“Really? Why?”
“That’s a reason i can’t explain”
“Well, now that i have called..”
“I will always be at your service” d!¢kson interrupted then they laughed. They had a lovely conversation and promised to know each other better.
Kingsley secretly met Mr Thompson to have a manly discussion with him. It wasn’t easy but the spirit of love moved him. He sat in the sittingroom with him and told him how much he loves Linda, even how it all started before he traveled.
“I un-derstand Linda has done something bad. “Kingsley began. “plea-se, temper justice with mercy and take her back as your own child again. I will father the child that she carries. I love her so much. plea-se, forgive her..”
Mr Thompson had a de-ep breath. He adjusted his wra-pper with his head forward. “You have spoken well but is not my decision to make. It is hers, whether she will agree for you to father the child or not”
“That isn’t a problem” Kingsley replied smiling.
“I will bring her back” Mr Thompson concluded.
A few days later after Linda went back to her parents, Wisdom called Tochi to have a stroll with her at WISS. It was holiday. They walked around the school compound holding hands until Wisdom took her to the tree where they stayed during the heavy rainfall.
“What are we doing here?” Tochi questioned looking up the tree.
“I brou-ght you here to remind myself what happened”
“What happened here, ap@rt from i sle-pt in your arms?
“Something more than that happened”
“What?” Tochi stared at his eyes.
“What happened was that i fell inlove with you. This is where my heart started beating for you” he knelt with a leg. “plea-se, Tochukwu Desmond, marry me and make me a father”
Tochi was alre-ady carried away emotionally, so a tear ran down her eyes. “Yes, i will marry you,” she replied.
Wisdom fixed the ring and k!$$£d her pas-sionately
