I rushed into the house with shock, how can a guilty person be this bold? I asked myself. What does he have to say apart from apologizing for s——g Nelly, once a cheat is always a cheat. I thought as i walked faster into the house.
I entered the living room and Jordan came with me, i was hoping he would wait in the living room but to my surprise he followed my step as i climbed the stairs. Now i know this guy is possessed, is he planning on following me to my room? I asked myself. I wished my foster parents were home, he would’nt have been able to terrorize me in my own house.
I could remember Jordan doing the same thing five years ago at my sixteenth birthday party. He eventually followed me into my room years ago but i did not want him to succeed in following me into my room so i hurried my step.
I was almost at the door of my room and Jordan was still following closely from behind. I decided to stop walking and pretend as if i was interested in whatever he had to say, in order for him to stop following me as well. I stopped infront of my room and i turned to him and said
“what do you really want? Do you plan on troubling me after all you have done?” i asked in a loud voice. I could see the pain in his eyes and i could tell he was anxious about something. I could not place the reason for the pain but probably he was anxious to clear himself just like he said before. A part of me wanted to give him a second chance to clear himself but another part of me remembered the sinful act of betrayal i withnessed years ago. I decided to play a fast one on jordan. I did as if i was interested in what he had to say and i slowly rested on the door of my room and fold my arms. Jordan looked at his feet and did as if he was trying to compose himself for what he wanted to say. Since he was staring at his feet, i decided to make use of that opportunity to escape. Before he could raise his head up, i hurriedly opened the door and rushed into my room. He hurriedly reach for the door handle, but i was faster, i locked the door from behind in a sec. I rested on the door and breathe a sign of relief in my room.
“Nancy, dont do this! I need to clear myself, you need to know the truth! Open up please!” Jordan said from the door. I was not ready to listen to him, so i decided to remain in my room hoping he would leave when he gets tired of waiting. I undressed and went to the bathroom to shower. After taking my bath, i decided to rest but the worms in my stomach would’nt let me. Jordan has been quiet or probably he had left i thought since i could not hear any sound from outside, but Just when i wanted to unlock the door and get something to eat, thinking Jordan has left, i heard a bang on my door. “Nancy i just wanna let you know that i am not leaving! i am so not leaving this place until you listen to me” jordan shouted and i froze. I tip toed back to my bed and sat down. I rested my back on my pillow as i thought of what to do. I was alone with Jordan in the whole house and i could not get rid of him. A part of me wanted to listen to him but i could not bring myself to agree with the thought. Jordan has nothing to say, a cheat is also a liar, i concluded and i decided to sleep.
I woke up with an empty stomach the following day. I checked my phone and saw many missed calls from khole, mi mom and mi dad. I decided to take my bath and prepare for work before calling them back. I was super hungry but i would run late for work if i should make something to eat before preparing for work. I decided to prepare for work and grab breakfast from a resturant on my way to work. Jordan should be gone by now, i thought as i took my bath. I got ready for work and looked round my room to confirm i was not leaving anything behind, satisfied with myself, i unlocked my door to leave.
WTF!! What is he still doing here? I asked myself. Jordan was laying on the tiled floor infront of my room, he was asleep, i did not know what to think, how can he be so determined and disturbing? I asked myself, he has decided to be a torn in my flesh, i thought.
Since he was asleep, i gently removed my heels and tip toed down stairs. I quickly told the gate man to open the gate and i hurriedly left in my car, leaving Jordan behind. Though he was a cheat i trust he could not steal from the house…
I could not stop to get breakfast on my way to work, i was running late so i had to run along. I also could not take my mind off Jordan, i thought about how he would have felt sleeping on the bare floor and how he would feel to find out i was gone this morning. A part of me had pity on him but i console myself thinking he was paying for his sin.
I called Mi mom immediately i got to work, she told me how worried she was when she could not reach me on phone. I told her i slept off due to stress and she asked me other regular question about my well been. I told her i was alright and we talked for a while before ending the call. I also called Mi dad as well and he also asked some parental questions like mi mom.
During work i decided to go to khole’s residence in case jordan was still in the house, i called khole and she told me she would be coming over instead, at first i wanted to kick against her suggestion because of Jordan but when she told me she was coming with Josh i was rest assured there wont be any drama. I remained in my chair,lost in thought.
“Hi Nan, you care for lunch?” that was Mr.larry my group supervisor. I smiled shyly and greeted him. On hearing of food i remembered i was yet to eat since last night, so i decided to welcome Mr.larry’s invite. I followed Mr.larry to the cafeteria and i had fried rice and chicken for lunch. Bills on larry.
Work was not really demanding, we only get busy when we have a special assignment to cover. So i decided to get busy with my phone, i was still playing games on my android phone when i saw Khole’s incoming call. Probably she has seen Jordan at home, i said as i accepted the call. “Nancy where are you, you have to come to my house right now! There is an emergency” Khole shouted into the phone with fear in her voice. I asked khole what the emergency was but she did not state the problem, she only wanted me to come to her place immediately. I was scared, hoping nothing bad had happened. Khole and her family were my last hope and if anything unpleasant should happen to any member of my family, i could be lost forever without finding a way out. I remembered that mi mom and mi dad were out of the country, “Could anyone of them be involved in a plane crash?” i asked myself and My legs became weak and too heavy for me to carry. I wanted to stand up and run to khole’s house but immediately i stood up i fell back into my chairs.
“Easy dear, are you ok?” That was Mr.larry just in time just to prevent me from falling into the plastic chair on my bare a-s. Mr.larry sat me down and touched my forehead, i was sweating profusely. He asked if i was okay and i told him there was an emergency at home. He continued to ask different question trying to be all caring. The eyes watching me from every corner of the room made me uncomfortable and i could not respond accurately to his questions. I gathered my last strength and stood upright, Mr.larry supported me again thinking i would fall. I released myself from Mr.larry’s grip and composed myself to asked for the permission to leave. Mr.larry granted my request and i left my department hearing whispering from different angle. I wonder what my co workers were thinking about myself and larry but little did they know that i have shut my heart against love five good years ago. That was least of my problem then.
I walked as fast as i could to my car and drove to khole’s house with shaky legs and hands. I tried calling khole on my way but she did not answer my call, i became worried as i cursed the heavy traffic on my way.

I got to Khole’s house thirty minutes later, i got to the front of her gate and i quickly parked as soon as i could. I rushed into the house and shouted Khole’s name but i got no one answered, i became alarmed.
“what could have happened? Was there an accident or a plane crash?” i asked myself as i ran up and down in the living room shouting khole’s name. When i could not get a response from inside i ran to the gate man post and asked him of khole’s where about. He told me khole left with her boyfriend some minutes ago. I further asked about the mood they were when they left, probably they were in a hurry or they might be sick or moody? I asked the gate man. He smiled and told me they were in a happy mood and they were playing together before they left. I became confused, how would khole call me without an emergency? I asked myself as i walked slowly into the main house. I was almost opening the door to the house when i got a message alert, it was from khole “Go to my room, there is a surprise” that was the content of the message. I called khole back but she rejected my call. I hurriedly went inside and rushed to khole’s room. The sight that welcomed me was shocking!
“Am i dreaming!?” i asked myself as i slowly closed the door behind me.
Could my eyes be deceiving me? I asked myself again, probably its just the back view. “How have you been Twinny, i missed you” she said with a smille. I opened my mouth to talk but i found myself closing it without a word. How can i be speechless? She should be the guilty one not me. I thought. How can khole collide with an enemy? A betrayal? A cheat? I asked myself. I would have love to bounce on her and show her alittle of the devil in me but her look will not let me. Nelly looked lean and unkept, probably she was sick, i could not tell.
“I know you hate me right now and you take me for a betrayal, no problem because i am just what you think i am. I am not here to clear myself but an innocent guy that has been suffering in my place.” Nelly said and i did not know what to think anymore. Is Jordan really innocent? I asked myself. Nelly looked at me and continued “I tried his line throughout yesterday without reaching him, he called back this morning and told me he wanted to clear the misunderstanding between the two of you today, else, he will not leave your house. I did not know what to do, i know Jordan is a man of his word, just the way he meant it when he told you, he would stand by you, he was determined to clear things up with you today. Thinking you might get him arrested or hurt him if you should come back and meet him in your house, i rushed down to your apartment, after getting the address from Jordan. I tried all i could to convince him to leave your apartment but he declined. Since he was bent on been sturbon, i also decided not to leave him. We were still in your apartment when khole came, i did not really know her but Jordan recognized her, at first she was burning with anger but the young man that followed her, whom i gussed is her fiance, calmed her down and made her listen to us. I did the talking while everybody listened as i told them all that happened five years ago.
Everybody believed me and saw my reason, that is why khole said she would help us get to you. She also said you are good hearted and you will not hear my story and be bent on not forgiving. This is the reason for this set up. Just as khole said, i hope you will give me the chance to explain myself and clear Jordan, if not for anything for the friendship we once shared.”
Nelly ended her speech and i was shocked. If her story could change khole’s mind, will it change my mindset as well? What i saw five years ago could it be a lie and what she is about telling me is the truth? I asked myself as i settled in a couch, waiting for her to put light to the darkness i had been carrying along for a whole five years of my life. I looked at Nelly and told her “Continue”…………….After comments..
