ONE MONTH LATER
Emma parked his car close to a black gate and c@m£ down he knock at the gate,a soldier open the gate,emma greeted him and told him he has come to see their boss son chidi,he was asked if he was on appointment but he wasn’t but he told the soldier to inform chidi that he is looking for him,the soldier asked of his name and emma told him,he close the gate and in less than four minutes he opened the gate for emma to come in,he met chidi waiting for him at the entrance of the house,he admired the building,it was really a big house and there was a lot of soldiers seen around the whole compound, the distance from the gate to the entrance door was like a five minutes walk,they both greeted themselves and chidi ushered emma in,emma was sitted still admiring the place this was the first time he was coming to chidi house since they have been friends.
Chidi sat down )what do I offer you
Emma :anything soft will do
Chidi called one of the maid to get a jui-ce for emma,the maids return with a tray,jui-ce and one glas-s cu-p was on it,she place the tray on the small side table that was close to emma, she opened the drink and poured it into the cu-p,she then left after doing that.
Chidi :so what’s up with u,and how is Sandra
Emma :she is fine,and how is work
Emma :you have a great place
Chidi :it’s my father house not mine but all the same thank you.you didn’t call me to inform me you were coming
Emma :yeah I was actually in the neighbourhood when I realised I have a friend who live around it wasn’t that difficult to get directions to your house you know
They both laughed
Emma :i could have come to your office but I just decided to come see you at home,i want a favour from you,and plea-se i will be very glad if you can help me out.
Chidi sat up right
Chidi okey if it within my power i will help,so what is it
Emma :i want to start up my own business, i want to be boss on my own,
Chidi okey what business is that
Emma :supplying of goods,i will buy goods from China and then sell it on wholesale, i won’t open any sto-re for now i will do the dealing from the warehouse, after I have gathered alot of clients then I can think of something else maybe build a company, i know that will take a long time but that is my plan.
Chidi :i love the idea,so how do I come in
Emma :i know i shouldn’t be asking you for this but there is no one that will help me out in this
Chidi :just tell me
Emma :i have alre-ady made the necessary requirements about the goods from China but two things are still lacking, the goods i inquire for is a large quantity and i nee-d a company that will sign for me, i can’t use mine because its a great risk i really don’t trust any one,
Chidi :you want to use my company name,so that it will be more easily for you
Emma :yes,and one more thing my money isn’t complete,i still nee-d to borrow some money from you.
Chidi :you want to me to also lend you some money
Emma :plea-se i know it will be difficult for you but plea-se you got to help me on this,i just nee-d to do something for myself and i know in time i will make it plea-se.
Chidi thought for a while
Chidi :that’s not a problem,so how much are we talking about
Emma :a hundred million
Chidi was shocked
Chidi :what? ,are you mad,how can you start up a business with such a hvge amount of money.
Emma :there’s a lot of profit in this,you will still benefit from it believe me, have i ever lied to you
Chidi :i know you haven’t, but come on you are a business man and you should know how this goes,are you really confidence about this
Emma :i know what you are afraid of but trust me i have been working with this people for a very long time, they are actually one of our suppliers in my company, that is why i nee-d your company name to do it for me.
Chidi was confused,
Chidi :this is risky,i will help you out but on my conditions,
Emma okey which are
Chidi :you will give me every details about the suppliers,i will contact them myself, then I can help you take a loan from the bank, when the goods arrived you pay back the loan i took from the bank and then keep your profit.
Emma was excited
Emma :you mean you can help me out with this
Chidi :i am doing this for old time sake,hope you didn’t take any loan in the bank
Emma :no,i and Sandra has been working on this for a long time now,sandra help me borrow from her siblings and other family members, with the ones we gathered it was all forty million naira
Chidi :you better keep that money safe,this is what you will do,when the goods arrived, i am going to help you with the complete money of course they will ask for interest i will settle that too,we are going to pay back the bank,when the goods arrived use your profit then to settle who ever that lend you money,then aquire for another supply but this time without taking a loan from the bank and about my money you will pay me back sixty percent and keep the remaining forty
Emma was so surprised to hear that,he thanked chidi so much,
Chidi :come on emma you are my friend and if i can’t help you out in this it won’t be fair of me,i want you to be more than what you are today,and i believe with this you can push throu-gh, so st©p all this,you have always been my back bone and you have risk your life for me back then in school i think this is the time to pay you back.
Emma was very grateful,he didn’t know how to appreciate what chidi was about to do for him,who could ever thought that the good you did in the past could still be remembered…
Chidi went to amara house the next day,emma advice him to go and also gave him the address, he parked at the side of the house,he c@m£ down and went to knock on the gate the gate man opened the gate.

Chidi laughed and amara was surprise to see him laughing
Chidi :your engagement with maxwell is at the blink of coll@psing, so what makes you think my involvement will make it end
Amara :what is the meaning of that
Chidi c@m£ closer to her
Chidi :i know you are not happy with maxwell, so don’t even try to pretend because it is written all over your face,i can see it in your face and i can feel it in your breath.
Amara was now feeling uncomfortable because she knows where this was heading to

Chidi :you want me to leave because am saying the truth
Amara :no,i just want you to leave you are causing alot of problems around me and i don’t want that,i want you to st©p all this
Chidi :you want me to stay away from you
Amara couldn’t st©p her tear to rolling down her cheek
Amara :since your abs£nce i have been doing fine,your pres£nce is hurting me,just leave me alone
Chidi :no amara i can’t do that,do you really want me to go away (Chidi held her by the arms)look into my eyes and tell me you want me to leave you alone
Amara looked at him but couldn’t say anything, does she really want him to leave
Chidi :i love you Amara so much that I can’t stay without you,do you have any idea how i have been all this years,i missed you so much (and he hvgged her amara was speechless she didn’t hvg him back)i am sorry for what I said the other time at the p@rty i was just angry at myself because you should be wearing my ring not his,if only I didnt travelled all this couldn’t have gone this far,i am sorry for leaving am so sorry for everything, i have missed you so much.
Amara couldn’t do anything,she just cried,they were hvgging so pas-sionately, they were brou-ght back to reality when they heard a voice behind them,Amara quic-kly re-move herself from chidi,chidi was just smiling looking at maxwell who was so surprised and angry to see chidi and most especially the fate that they were hvgging.
Chidi :yes me,are you surprised, so you really think i won’t come back,are you shock to see me,don’t tell me you are scared
Maxwell :you must be a big fool if you think I am scared of you,what are you doing here
Chidi :what does it look like i am doing
Maxwell :now you listen to me,Amara is mine and let that get into your head the better for you
Chidi :and who is dragging her with you,don’t tell me you are insecure, oh I know why because of me
Maxwell :i know why you are here,you want to try to st©p us from getting married but let me tell you nob©dy can st©p us from getting married.
Chidi :don’t be too sure

Chidi whisper in his ear
Chidi :we started this game Long time ago and guess what I c@m£ full prepared, and you know i can beat you to it this time, do you want to know why because you and i know who her heart truly beat for.
Maxwell angrily pushed chidi, chidi began to laugh because to him getting maxwell angry was fun,maxwell was now at the t©p of his voice
Maxwell :you will never win,not in this life or the next life,i rather die to allow it happen.
Chidi :don’t say it out loud,the walls have ears and you know your wish might come to pas-s.
Maxwell :you are crazy, you fool
Chidi :you have a nice day maxwell, till we meet again
Chidi looked at amara and walked to his car and drove off,he was really satisfied and he was happy that he got what he wanted, as soon as he left maxwell turned to amara, Amara was alre-ady scared because she don’t want any problem from maxwell
Maxwell :this is it right, standing in front of the house i bought with my money hvgging another man,is this how to thank me for all i have been doing for you,answer me.

It has been two days now,amara parents are worried about her where about, they have gone to the police to l@ya complain,Mr and Mrs uche,Mrs ada Marcus and maxwell were all sitted in the sitting room of amara,mrs uche has been crying her heart out and Mrs ada Marcus couldn’t do nothing but to console her.
Mr uche :this is unbelievable, she has never done this kind of thing before, so when did she start all this,leaving without informing anyone
Mrs uche :Amara,Amara where are you plea-se come back
Mrs ada Marcus :it’s okey i know where ever she is now she is fine,maybe she don’t want anyone to disturb her that’s why she switch off her phone
Mrs uche :but that’s not a good reason na,okey who is disturbing her,who that will make her leave just like that
Mr uche :i still don’t un-derstand maxwell did both of you had a fight
Maxwell :no,i really can’t explain it,it was really funny, you know amara and i haven’t been seeing each other for some time now, so I was invited to a p@rty that night and i thought i wish to go with her,i called her to inform her,she agreed and that was when I c@m£ to see her that night but she behave as if we nevered had any agreement, i tried to question her and she got angry telling me to leave the house i told her I can’t, she left me in the sitting room and i stayed there,it wasn’t up to 20 minutes she c@m£ out looking all dressed,she didn’t tell me where she was going i asked her but I was talking to a deaf ears,i only saw her entered a car parked outside and they left, that’s all I know so I don’t see anything wrong in what i did,i recognised the car it was chidi car,ever since she met chidi she has been behaving weird
Mrs uche :is it not that same boy that you saw them together the other day outside
Maxwell :yes mama that’s the boy
Mr uche was confused
Mr uche :which boy are you talking about
Mrs uche :it’s about five or six days ago I was coming back from market when I saw maxwell outside the gate shouting, when I asked him he told me Amara locked him outside because they had some misun-derstanding, well I opened the gate for him and we both went inside, i settled everything that day ooo,
Mr uche :that still don’t answer my question, who is the chidi
Maxwell :chidi was the guy i saw hvgging amara that faithful day outside the gate,i got angry and wanted to do something stupid but she quic-kly ran inside and lock me out.
Mr uche was shocked
Mr uche :is this true but why didn’t i hear of this
Maxwell :we felt it wasn’t necessary, i have forgotten about all that,now the important thing now is to find her
Mrs ada Marcus :what if she is at that chidi place right now and we are here killing ourselves
Maxwell :i have thought about that but amara will not go there
Mr uche :but you said it was the boy that c@m£ to pick her that night
Maxwell :yes but i trust her she won’t sleep at the boy place
Mr uche :and what makes you think so
Maxwell :amara knows what she is doing,she won’t stay at the boy place because she knows we will find out after all she knew i know who c@m£ to pick her,probably she is in a h0tel,let just hope the police find her.
Meanwhile amara was still in chidi house,chidi tried everything possible to make amara comfortable, chidi wasn’t always at home but the little time he has he spent it all on amara, chidi and amara bec@m£ friends again, Amara was in her room (the guest room)she was re-ading a novel that chidi bought for her,chidi knocked and amara told him to enter, they both look at each other smiling,chidi sat on the be-d close to amara
Chidi :don’t you get tried of re-ading
Amara :you know i love re-ading, it’s one of my hubby
Chidi :yeah I know ,so Amara
Chidi :it’s not like am asking you to leave but don’t you think its time for you to go back home your parents will be worried
Amara was now unhappy
Amara :i don’t want to face them now,they will never un-derstand
Chidi :i know about that but you can’t stay here for long, my parents will be coming home very soon and if they met you here,i don’t know
Amara :but why
Chidi :i am not in the habit of bringing women home,and if they see you they might think otherwise, you know what I mean
Amara:but I don’t want to go home now,okey I could just stay in an h0tel
Chidi :no amara you will not,what is really the problem, why are you running from your home,i have been asking you this question since you c@m£ here but you are refusing to tell me,what really happened that night and i won’t ask again,
Amara started crying and chidi tryed to console her
Chidi :amara talk to me,i might be of help
Amara :he tryed to m©l£stme
Chidi was confused
Chidi :maxwell tryed to m©l£styou or wanted se-x and you wasn’t in the mood,was that why you had to risk your life that night
Amara :you don’t get do you,he tryed to f0rç£ himself on me
Chidi :maxwell is your fiance and i don’t see anything wrong in a man wanting his woman but he could have just let you be till you are in the mood, wait, or maybe just maybe you haven’t had S-x with him yet
Amara was silent, chidi saw the answer in her eyes,it was just there,chidi felt pity and pain for her
Chidi :amara i don’t un-derstand you,if maxwell is hurting you why did you still put up with him,why did you leave me for him,why
Amara :after all what you did,i nee-ded to pay him back for almost losing his life all because of me, i thought d@t!nghim could make me forget all about you and love him but I have tryed but it isn’t working
Chidi :are you trying to say you still don’t love him then why are you still with him
Amara :maxwell has done a lot for me and my family, he made me who I am today,he has everything i own,the company i work for belongs to his uncle if not for him i couldn’t have had a job now,my car,the house all belongs to him,the allowance he gives to me is even better than my salary, my parents are having a better life all because of him,you caused it chidi it was all your fault,you gave me no choice
Chidi held her knee
Chidu:amara,am sorry for all what you have went throu-gh just because of my mistake, but you never gave me the chance to explain to you the last time we saw each other, the only regret i have was leaving you,i could have stayed and fight for you,i didn’t mean to hurt him that faithful day,maxwell blocked me on my way coming back from a p@rty, two other guys was with him,i had to protect myself, yes I beat him up but didn’t shoot him i swear,i and emma left after that
Amara :wait you and emma
Chidi :he didn’t tell you Emma was there,emma killed the two boys he did that trying to defend me
Amara :if emma was there why didn’t you say so if what you are saying was the truth
Chidi God amara, do you think Emma won’t go to jail if i implicate him,i was even glad maxwell didn’t mention him,the only reason I was free was because of my dad and the money my dad payed to keep maxwell mouth shut
Amara looked surprised
Chidi :he didn’t tell you that also, oh you thought he just decided to let me go after he has caught me in his n£¢k.
Amara :what about the f!nger print on the gun
Chidi :i t©uçhed the gun when I took it from him and throw it away, it might be possible he shut himself.
Amara :he couldn’t do that
Chidi :are you sure of that
Amara :but why
Chidi :you still don’t get it do you,he wanted me out of the way,and he had to make you get me out of your mind and becomes his,and his plan worked,you easily fell for it,you see all this he is doing for you is to keep you all to himself,i know figures everything out he tryed ra-ping you because seeing me back was something he wouldn’t take and maybe if he had s x with you or you got pregnant you will quic-kly marry him and there won’t be a chance for me then.
Amara felt like killing herself she couldn’t take all what chidi was telling her,she cried her heart out
Amara :how can he do this to me
Chidi hvg her
Chidi :ah ah st©p it,you should be happy you haven’t married him yet,now you can start all over again
Amara :but how, what do I do now
Chidi :do you really want my advice
Amara:yes plea-se help me
Chidi :amara i will help you but you have to be clever, maxwell is a very intelligent person when it comes to games like this,you have to pretend nothing happened
Amara wipe away her tear
Chidi :you will go home, accept any things they say okey,just try to make peace with your parents and plea-se try not to make maxwell suspicious, when you are done with that,let me know
Amara :and then
Chidi :just relax work on this first and in no time all will be fine.
Amara :thanks you very much for everything
Chidi :shhhhhh,enough of that,so are you okey now
Amara :i think so
Chidi h you look more beautiful when you cry
Chidi :yeah,you will always be that queen to my heart
They both starred at each other
Amara felt safe for the first time in many years,her mind was now determine to end the relationsh!pwith maxwell but she has to pl@yby the rules of chidi,she got prepared to leave chidi house the next day and by the next day afternoon chidi dropped her at home,they promised to keep in t©uçh, amare saved chidi number in code because she couldn’t want maxwell to know she was talking with chidi,
