Very early the next day I had a little discussion with Lydia, Chika and her twin before heading out to meet Gen. Johnson. The girls weren’t in support of me dealing with Kelvin by putting him behind bars, they wanted something more confrontational like physically abusing or deforming him. We had a little argument on it but at the end I won them over by pleading they allow me plan my revenge the way that suits me.
As I headed to Gen. Johnson’s office, I received a very surprising call from my dad.
“I hope you are in the state?” he asked, “no dad. I’m currently in Abuja settling some things” I answered.
“I forwarded your name to the state government house. The state governor is selecting new special advisers/assistants. You have to round up whatever you are doing there and head back to the state. You may be asked to report any day” he disclosed with his usual strong voice.
“oh Dad!” I exclaimed with surprise.
“don’t tell me I did wrong by submitting your name?. You are my only child capable of stepping in my shoes. This appointment will help your career” he wrapped up.
“I know dad, it’s just that I’m astonished. I’m just a lady. I’m still unmarried. How far can I go with politics?” I cried with joy mixed with worry.
“shut up” he barked and hung up.
“oh dad” I murmured to myself, while the great news settled in me. I was steps away from being addressed with the title “HONOURABLE”
Gen. Johnson was pleased to see me just like always. After exchanging pleasantries, I told him my reason for coming.
“I want Kelvin disgraced out of his job. I’m willing to do whatever necessary” I appealed, but unfortunately the Gen. denied my request for the first time.
“I’m sorry dear, but things don’t happen like that. Remember you gave me full assurance on the boy before I picked him. Kelvin is now too committed with some top shots in this country that exposing him in anything can backfire on everyone including me. Unless you want him terminated. That’s the only way out. I’m sorry dear” the good old military officer said to me, dashing my hopes and leaving me with only one plan….
So i went home to tell the ladies what happened
“Ladies, the old General refused to help ooo. I think I’m going to do it the way you girls wanted. So I need more suggestions” I addressed Lydia, Chika and her twin later in the evening. They looked at each other and smiled.
“I know a guy named Gutso. He’s good in doing dirty jobs” Lydia said with a smile,
“hmmm how good is he?, how well do you know him?” I asked curiously.
“just trust me. He’s good” she answered convincingly.
“so how exactly do you plan beating up Kelvin?. Will the Gutso guy do the beating or are you doing it yourself?” Chika suddenly asked.
“I just feel like squeezing out all my anger and hate on that fool. Yea I’ll do the beating myself and if possible shoot him on the head” I blew out angrily while the girls shook with shock.
“jeez please don’t go that far. He isn’t worth it. Just toss him around and that’s it” Chika’s twin added with fear. I breathed deeply and smiled.
“don’t worry, I know what I’m doing. Just get your Gusto, my house ready” I said to Lydia who simply nodded without a word.
Lillian walked into my bedroom sat beside me on the bed and stared at me with care.
“I really don’t understand the reason you invited me to your home by this hour nor the frightened look on your face” she said with concern. I held her hand and smiled weakly.
“last night was terrible, sleeping all alone. It wasn’t my first time of sleeping alone but you very well know the reason I was unable to sleep” I said softly.
“I don’t think Stella is going to do anything silly to you. Returning her car was a good deed, moreover even if she’s actually planning something. My presence won’t change a thing, instead I equally will be on harms way” she said with a deep breath. I drew closer to her, my lips and nose inches away from hers.
“I don’t know how to say this but your presence is what I need the most. I have grown so attached to you” I confessed, kissing her lightly at the same time. She closed her eyes and smiled deeply.
“you just broke up with your fiancée you know” she murmured accusingly.
“yea but having you is a dream come true” I answered, grabbed and dragged her down on the bed, while my lips worked on her.
“oh baby, I haven’t felt like this in a long time” I breathed.
“me too, I have been waiting for this moment a long time. I have always loved you Kelvin” she cried with love.
“oh thank you for your honesty” I breathed, flinging away her clothes with great urgency. In no time we were devouring and enjoying our passion with enormous rapour.
Same minutes, an uneasy sensation suddenly ran through Stella, making her drop the glass of wine she was enjoying. Tears dropped from her eyes with no just cause. It was as if a great force left my body. Two days later, she inspected she new house with the girls
