Aunty rose :that’s good,so what is your decision about our conversation last time.

Chidi :about me going back to nigeria

Aunty rose:yes

Chidi :aunty what’s wrong with me staying here,i mean am doing well here

Aunty rose:chidi, i know you don’t want to go back, but you have to,you staying here wasn’t the idea at the first place, your father only brought you to stay with me because of the things going on around you,you were turning into something else and it was destroying your father reputation,and now that you have acquired what you came here for its best you go back.

Chidi :go back to do what,there is nothing for me to go back to,i like my life here

Chidi nod in agreement

Aunty rose:do you till love her

Chidi :everything single hour that passes, i just can’t get her off my mind

Aunty rose:and do you want her back

Chidi :she probably could have gotten married by now

Aunty rose:and if she is not

Chidi was speechless

Aunty rose:chidi go on a visit to nigeria, stay there for sometime, try to find out things you don’t know and if you see that there is nothing to stay there for then you can come back here and start your life here, no one will stop you then.do you hear me.

Chidi thought about what his aunty said for a while

Chidi :i will think about it

Aunty rose:no i have heard about that for a very long time,decide now

Chidi :aunty

Aunty rose:am waiting, are you going

Chidi :alright i will

Aunty rose:when

Chidi :i don’t know, i need some time to arrange somethings,then I will tell you

Aunty rose okey i will ask again so make sure my answer is ready by then

Chidi :it will

They both laughed

Chidi :i will be in my room now okey

Aunty okey

Chidi got up and headed to his room,while aunty rose continue reading her magazine.

Amara and maxwell are now engaged and soon to be married, Amara is now working in one of the company in nigeria,their relationship wasn’t going the way maxwell has thought,Amara on the other hand wasn’t really sure about marring maxwell but to her she has no choice, maxwell has always been there for her,he saw her through school and it was through his connection she is working now,maxwell to her was her life saver, maxwell called amara and told amara to come spend a night in his house which she did,she was in maxwell sitting room working on her laptop when maxwell walked into the sitting room,he was upset, he stood opposite amara.

Maxwell :you are really getting on my nerve,for the pass two hours you have been on that laptop doing only God knows, why you left me in the bedroom all by myself, is that fair

But amara didn’t respond

Maxwell :am talking to you.

Amara :i thought i told you that I will be doing some paperwork at home but you insisted i come stay with you,now why complain

Maxwell voice was now high

Maxwell :you didn’t tell me you will spend so much time on it,take a good look at the time

Pointing at the well clock

Maxwell :it 11pm,you should be sleeping by this time women are not supposed to be working at this time of the day,is this what you will be doing if you become my wife.

Amara :you are shouting,and beside what will I be doing at the bedroom at this time.

Maxwell calmly sat down close to her,

Maxwell :why are you doing this to me,we have been together for more than past six years now and still you won’t allow me touch you,i don’t get you.

Amara :we agreed no s*x until marriage, we are not married yet are we?

Maxwell :that’s because you don’t want to,you keep telling me you need time to put things in order, i don’t understand the time

Amara :maxwell i am always busy with work, i don’t want my work to be an issue when we get married, so you have to wait

Maxwell :quit your job and let’s get married

Amara was so shocked why will he suggested such a thing

Amara :you want me to quit my job

Maxwell: you heard me

Amara :that’s not possible and you know that

Maxwell :your job and i who is more important to you

Amara :you are

Maxwell :then quite, i have enough money to take care of you

Amara :listen chidi…..

She quickly used her hand to cover her mouth,

Maxwell :why do you always call me that name mistakenly each time we are on a conversation

Amara :am sorry chi… I mean maxwell

Maxwell is now angry

Maxwell shouted )just keep quiet

Amara was now silent and scared,maxwell look at amara with so much anger,Amara couldn’t look at him

Maxwell :if i hear his name been mentioned around me ever again i will so beat the living day light out of you i swear,you better watch your mouth,amara do you hear me

Amara nodded

Maxwell :i give you one month amara to make up your mind or else i will drag you to the alter

He got up and walked to his room,Amara knew she had to be careful about everything and she knows maxwell meant everything he said,she quickly arranged everything she was doing and went to meet maxwell in his room……

Chidi later agreed on going to nigeria, he told aunty rose the date he could love to go,he was going not because he loved to but because he thought about what aunty rose told him and wanted to give it a try,aunty rose called Mr Jonathan to inform him that chidi will be in nigeria in less than a week,Mr and Mrs Jonathan was so happy that he has finally agreed to come home.it was the day that chidi was to leave his flight was 10:30pm,he has got prepared, he was in his room at about 7pm in the evening arranging his luggage when aunty rose entered.

Aunty rose smiling )i can see you are getting ready

Chidi :yeah,i am just making sure I don’t leave any important things behind,aunty i can’t pack everything so I don’t know

Aunty rose :that’s not a problem, you just leave the ones you still need and i will send them to nigeria when you get there,that is if you have no intention of coming back.

Chidi :hmmmmmm,well even if i decided to stay back i don’t think i will need some many of them,it not much, i have already given some to my friends,so the remaining one you can keep them ,you can send me the wrist watched,necklaces and some shoes i keep at my wardrobe, if you open it you will see them.

Aunty rose that’s okey,so have you called your dad

Chidi :yeah,i don’t even know how i got all this clothes

Aunty rose :are you asking me,you love buying things and that is what you should work on,you still have some in the store house

Chidi :you will do away with all that,i don’t need them and beside they are all old.

Chidi :i am better than him in everything

Amara: really,do you really think so of yourself, well to me you are lesser then anything i know

Chidi :i am lesser but do you know why letting you hurt my heart,

Amara :hurt,you are talking about hurt, what about you

Now her voice was Loud

Amara :you didn’t hurt my heart you broke it (tear rolling down her cheek )and you stand here to tell me you were hurt,i give you more than I had and you took it for granted, you put me in a situation i never hoped of facing in my life.

Chidi was touched and his heart was bleeding inside

Chidi angrily )i didn’t take you for granted, i never took your heart and break it,i have always accepted all what you gave and i cherished it,i didn’t let you down but amara you left me,you choose to believe him and you left me without thinking twice,if it was you amara i couldn’t have left i could have stayed with you and figure things out myself, do you know how i have been all this years trying to forget you,you took everything from me,you look me at the face and said your goodbyes,no matter how wrong i was you could have still looked at me,you were the one that lied to me,you promised never to leave me no matter what but you left me,you were the one that took me for granted,cause you took the love i gave to you and throw it back to my face,you were the one that broke my heart,because you couldn’t trust me,you know what maxwell is not the devil you are,and believe me i regret ever loving you and curse the day i met you,i came to talk thinking it was the right thing to do but now I just knew i made a mistake.

Chidi angryly left,Amara was dumbfounded she couldn’t say a word or do anything but to cry her heart out.

The next morning amara didn’t go to work,she wasn’t feeling too well because of the encounter she had with chidi,she saw maxwell missed calls on her phone, maxwell has been calling her since yesterday night,she tried calling him back but his phone was switched off,she then decided to go see him because she knew she had to give him an explanation and if she doesn’t go now it will get worse, she arrived at maxwell house and horn,the gate man quickly open the gate and she drove in,she came down from the car the gate man finished closing the gate.

Amara :is your oga around

Gateman:yes he dey inside

Amara lock the door of her car and went inside the house as she entered the sitting room she met maxwell kissing and romancing a girl on the couch, she wasn’t surprised on what she was seeing because that wasn’t the first time she has caught him,she has caught him on two occasions,one in an hotel and the other in a restaurant, she drop her bag on the table which made a sound that got maxwell attention, maxwell was so disappointed when he saw amara

Maxwell :you didn’t tell me you were coming

Amara :your phone was switched off and i just know why,your hands were full

Amara looked at both of them with disgusted

Amara :maxwell i thought your brain were working now i see that there is nothing in there,if you want to do this rubbish could you at least go upstairs, what if someone else walked in here and saw you fooling yourself with this what ever her name is,or should I call her thing

The girl got angry

Girl:what did you just say, you open your month to insult me

Maxwell looked at her with anger

Girl:see you better behave yourself or else,

Maxwell shouted )will you shut up

The girl was confused to hear what maxwell said

Maxwell :do you realise you are talking to my fiancee, who told you to talk,now get out,(but she was still sitting looking at maxwell as if she didn’t hear what he said)i said get out before I kill you

The girl quickly took her belongings and left upset

Maxwell :are you happy now you have succeeded in spoiling my good mood

Amara :for real (now upset)you call this good mood,you call sleeping around with girls good mood,what are you thinking that doing this will make me go to bed with you.

Maxwell :if i wanted to have s*x with you believe me it won’t take me a minute to do it,and beside why are you bothered,you should be thankful they are actually doing the job you couldn’t do.

Amara:i hate you maxwell, and i regret knowing you,the truth is that I can’t believe I left chidi for you,only God knows who the real devil is

Maxwell :Are you telling me this to my face

Amara :i am not telling you i am letting you know, and if you are not careful maxwell, if I could leave chidi yours will be too easy

She took her bag and left,maxwell called her back but she didn’t even wait one seconds,maxwell was so mad and angry, Amara drove out of maxwell house,she burst into tears while driving, she couldn’t think straight and needed some company,she drove down to Sandra shop,sandra own a big supermarket, after school she wanted to do something different for herself and she got the idea of opening a supermarket her father help her in building, the place and give her money to start it up and ever since then she has been doing well,she went straight to Sandra office,sandra was surprise to see amara so depressed and in tears, she consoled her and sat her down,she went to her sit and sat down.

Sandra :what is it,why are you looking this way

Amara :Sandra, i am so confused, i don’t know what to do

Sandra :what happened

Amara :i caught him again with another woman right in the sitting room,i don’t know what to do

Sandra :what did he say this time

Amara :same old story

Sandra :how long will this go on,i don’t get it,why can’t you put a stop to all this rubbish,maxwell isn’t good for you,end this so called relationship and find someone else who will really love you.

Amara :it’s not as easy as you think,my parents wants me to marry him and they won’t accept anyone else but him,and secondly how can I deal with myself if I leave him,he owns almost everything i have,you know without him i won’t be working now.

Sandra:amara listen to yourself, look don’t let situation make decision for you,you have to stand up for yourself, i don’t know what more to say that will make you see reasons with me,can’t you see you are suffering.

Amara :i am trying Sandra i am,but I just don’t know how to get away from him,my parents

Sandra :stop talking about your parents, don’t worry you can do this, yes you can just try to have a little faith and all will be well

Amara stoped crying and Sandra tried to cheer her up

Sandra :so what happened between you and chidi yesterday after you left he was looking for you

Amara was surprise

Amara :he was

Sandra :yes,what happened i didn’t get to ask you yesterday, so

Amara :i really don’t want to talk about this today

Sandra okey i understand,okey now why don’t we get ourselves busy

Amara :with what

Sandra:let just go out to anywhere,that will really work for you right now

Amara refused at first but later gave in after Sandra begged her,they both left the office,
