“If you should see Feyi and her friend here right now, coming to apologise to you what are you going to do?”
Stella sighed and stared at Tolani. “There’s nothing I can do since we are all humans, we sin and God forgives. You know me, I’m going to forgive them.” She replied.
Just then, Tolani called Feyi’s mobile phone and told them to come in. He continued discussing with Stella.
“They came to my office today and knelt down begging me.
“Do you mind working with me?” He quickly asked.
“Working with you? That wouldn’t be good. I’m not sure if Tobi’s going to return back to the office.” She replied.
“Tobi? The other guy?”
“Yes.” She replied.
“Hope there’s nothing?” Tolani glanced at her.
“I don’t even know but he’s not been picking up his calls.” She replied.
“That doesn’t matter. He might be sick.” Tolani chuckled.
Stella shrugged. “Maybe.” She replied and exhaled deeply.
“I came concerning Mr Tobi. Have you tried to call him?” He asked.
“Yes sir, but he didn’t pick up.” She replied.
“Same here… I’d like us to visit his place together
“Alright sir.” She picked up her handbag.
“Where could he have gone? He didn’t pick up his calls likewise!” Temitope shouted, sounding bothered.
“Has he ever behaved this way?” Stella enquired.
“No. Tobi is a good guy
“Hey Tola.” She grinned as she opened the door.
“How are you?” Tolani grinned in return and switched on the air conditioner.
“I’m good dear.” She replied.
Both kept gisting till they got to Stella’s place. Tolani gave her his surprise package and sped off to the hotel to check on his friends. They’d be returning the following day.
CHECK THE PAGE FOR EPISODE 18
Welcome!” Favour ushered Stella in.
“How was the day?” Stella asked smiling. “Awesome.” She grinned and brought out the ice cream pack. “You bought ice cream?” Favour moved closer to her.
“Why do I always meet you at home? Does someone bring you home?” Stella asked Favour.
Favour chuckled. “The M.D.”
“What’s up with the M.D? He does bring you home right?” Stella questioned.
“Yeah.” She said, stretching her hands forward to receive the ice cream from her.
Stella winked at her, laughed and clapped her hands together.
“M.D’s wife.” She continued laughing.
“Tobi’s wife.” Favour also laughed, still trying to grab the ice cream.
“Do you know Tobi didn’t come to office today? We went to his house and he wasn’t at home. He didn’t pick up his calls either till he switched off his phone.” She let go the ice cream.
“Really? Because of the issue?” Favour questioned.
“I guess so.” She replied and continued. “I want to check on Grandma to ask her about his whereabouts?”
“When I entered into the house, I discovered that the M.D gave me two tickets instead of one.” She stopped.
“Two tickets? For what?”
“There’s this Singles’ Forum that’s going to hold next week.” She said.
“Nawa oh… What’s the name of this M.D of yours?” Stella asked.
“Bolu.” Favour laughed. She knew what her friend was driving at.
“Tell me, is there anything between you guys? For him to have invited you to that kind of forum.” Stella cleared her throat suspiciously.
“No, but I guess he likes me. He’s a good christian that is very serious. He said his friend handles relationship talks and marriage counseling so he gave him tickets to share around.” She replied.
“So, anyone without a ticket won’t be allowed to come in?” Stella asked.
“I didn’t ask him that. Let me give you one of the tickets, so you come with him.” She said, grinning.
“Rubbish girl! You’ve almost finished my ice cream.” She stood and walked to her.
“I’m serious. Bolu said it’s going to be great, come with Tolani, since you’ve met him again. I’m so sure he gave you this ice cream sef.” She grinned.
“Thank you, that doesn’t mean you should finish it. If you need one, tell Bolu.” She laughed and snatched it from her.
Feyi sat down in the living room reading a magazine when her father walked in.
“I heard you just came around since morning.”
“I had to visit the lady, at least to show how sorry I was.” She replied.
“You visited the lady? I don’t trust you.” He sat down.
“I’m serious dad.” She said and dropped the magazine. She continued,
“I went with Kate and she said she has forgiven us..”
“If you think you can lie to everyone then I should be excluded.” He loosened his tie. “Where’s your mother?” He enquired.
“In the room, she’s using the restroom.” She replied.
“Do you know I’ve not changed my orders. You are not leaving this house, in fact I should stop you from receiving and making calls..” he said, giving her a stern look.
“Dad… It’s really not fair.” She felt sad.
“You think it was fair when you treated the lady like a nobody?” He scoffed.
Feyi shook her head wondering what she had gotten herself into.
Favour and Stella sat close to each other as they spoke with Tobi’s grandma in her apartment. Stella had asked her where Tobi was but she told her she didn’t know.
She explained what happened to her in the afternoon.
“He should be in Lagos.” She said.
“You should have followed him..” Favour said considerably.
“I wouldn’t do that. He didn’t tell me why we should leave. And are you sure you people are in good terms?” She asked Stella again. She had been asking her since she entered into the house.
“Yes ma.” Stella replied.
“Then, only God knows why he did it. I don’t know.. I really don’t.” She sighed.
