Chidi couldn’t eat or sleep through out the night,the only thing he does was to drink and cry,he couldn’t believe amara was pregnant for maxwell,he so wish he was dreaming.the next day he couldn’t go to work,he came out to the balcony to relax maybe the fresh air will help him cool his brain, he was still holding a bottle of drink, not up to 30 minutes dora came to meet him,dora saw him earlier going to the balcony,he wasn’t looking happy so she decided to know what the problem was.
Dora:if you are borded i can keep you company, hmmmmmm chidi let me be a friend we can go out or go somewhere quite, it sees like you don’t want to talk to me ,what is it
Chidi did not respond
Dora :you look like someone that is suffering from a heartbreak, tell me did some one break your heart
Dora :at last you talked,don’t you know i can be of help to you,
Chidi still ignored her and this got her upset
Dora: what the hell is wrong with you,i mean i have been standing here talking to you but it seems like am talking to a wood
Chidi was now angry dora trouble was the last thing on his mind
Chidi:dora,if you know what’s good for you get out of here and stay far from me

Sandra :seriously i didn’t know,she herself didn’t even know it came as a shock to all of us.
Chidi:and you didn’t know that she and maxwell are together

Sandra was shocked
Sandra :chidi, you really need to see her because she wants to see you,both of you need to talk things out,please give her a chance to explain and after her explanation you can then do whatever you want
Chidi:Sandra, you are asking for the impossible, am sorry I just can’t
Sandra :why can’t you try
Chidi :i can’t, there’s nothing you can say that will make me change my mind
Sandra didn’t know what more to say or do.
Sandra :alright, i don’t want to froce you
Chidi:thanks for trying, you are a good person and i am really greatful
Sandra :no problem, i will be on my way now
Chidi:alright you take care,it was nice of you coming
Sandra smiled, and got up,chidi immediately stood up too
Sandra :you should try and think about it okey
Sandra smiled again and walked to the door,when she got there she turned to chidi
Sandra :just in case you change your mind, she will be waiting for you tomorrow at the fast food plaza that you both first had lunch, time 2:00pm,she will be waiting
She opened the door and left,chidi sat back on his chair and lost in thought, he was so confused on what to do,sandra was very disappointed, she wasn’t able to convince him to see amara, she just pray chidi change his mind, TO BE CONTINUED…
