“I’m Obinim” Season 3 – Episode 2


At this stage she was getting more furious and her panting was very visible this time around. She was really angry. Efua couldn’t take it anymore.

“Obi, just get me out of here” She said.

Thank God she realized that she needed to leave the scene. Paulina on the other hand couldn’t utter a word, from her look; I knew she was feeling all guilty. Upon all what Shela and I told her, she still hangs around with Jojo. Well perhaps it’s because he is carrying his child.

I left together with Efua in her car. It felt good when I was driving her but her mood still remained the same. I needed to do something to calm her down. I didn’t know where we were driving to, all I knew is we were getting far away from Jojo. She was silent all the way through. The only thing she said was when she had to give direction when we came to a cross road.

Well, it wasn’t something I was expecting but here we were at her house. Efua was really living good. Her house was a  simple  mansion. I just followed her when she went inside.  We were at the living room now and she was seated on the sofa. You could tell that she was still not in a good mood. I wanted to ask what relationship existed between herself and Jojo but I knew that wasn’t the right time.

All she did was to  take a recorder which laid on the coffee table just beside her sofa.  She looked at me and began recording.

“Dear Diary,

Today is 14th July 2015, at exactly 2:15pm. I’m with Obinim, whom I intend to give all my property and wealth to when I finally leave this world.  Recoded by Efua.”

“What the hell just happened, what did she just do” I said to myself. I don’t understand. Efua was getting more complicated than I expected.

“Efua, what is the meaning of what you did” I asked.

“When I’m not around, somebody needs to take care of all this. You the only person I could think of Obi.” She said.
“But.. But Efua” I asked.

“Obi, I know how much you love me even before you met me. I know how you want to help me and not take advantage of me just like Jojo did” She said.

“just Like Jojo did? I asked.

“I don’t want to talk about that now, can you please talk me to sleep” She said and laid her head on my laps and closed her eyes.

I watched her beautiful face as she lay sadly on my laps. Such a beautiful creature of God, what has she done to merit such a penalty. I didn’t know what happened; my eyes became teary so I quickly wiped it off.

“Obi, why are you crying” She asked.

She had already sensed that I was crying.

“Oh come on, I wasn’t crying” I said.

“You don’t have to lie Obi, shush. No more talking” she said.

I starred at her and that moment was the best moment in my entire life. We were quiet yet our silent spoke more than enough. She looked amazingly adorable as she laid there.

Now, the thought of Jojo came to mind, did he really try to take advantage of her. But how, I really wanted to know what really happened.

Just as at when I thought everything was calm with Efua having a good sleep. Again, Jojo showed up at Efua’s house. He was alone this time around.

To be continued.
