“I want to travel, Dad said he wants to send me to Manchester; where his brother lives, to complete my education.”
“That’s a nice idea, but he should have done that earlier than now.” Stella was glad.
“Wao, congrats.” Fave smiled.
“What’s the happiness and well wishes all about? Do I look like I’ve accepted his offer to leave?
“You refused? If I have that chance do you think I’ll wait here? Yes, you may not like it but you have to go!”
. “I wish to leave, but not without you.
“Because of me? Tolani!”
“Yes now, I can’t imagine leaving you all alone. Your dad is on the sick bed, you also know where your mother is… I can’t!”
“If it’s because me then… I’m no longer interested in this relationship.”
♡Four years after – Present.
Tolani just returned back to home, two months back. He was the one his father sent to head the headquarters of his companies.
He had tried all means to get in touch with her again but all was up to no avail. He had tried all he could but none of his attempts was able to locate where Stella was.
He called the phone numbers he knew but none went through. He visited the house he knew they were living in before his depature but still she wasn’t there despite his difficulties and obstacles.
He disciplined himself to the extent that he didn’t give his heart to anyone else because of Stella.
He had imagined how she could be, where she worked and what she looked like. He wished his wishes could come true so that he could set his eyes on her again.

The one I love episode 2
Tolani got back home and headed to his room. He was already tired, perhaps the day was hectic. It was less than 10 minutes after, Professor Olakunle drove into the compound in a Nissan Pathfinder Jeep. He walked in with his daughter, Feyi.
Professor was the owner of three popular hotels in the town and one of Oladele- Tolani’s father’s best friends. It was Oladele that established the Professor.
Though, he was an English professor but he had nothing good to do with his title as a professor until he met Oladele who turned his situation around into harmony. Then, he sent his daughter to Oxford University to study.
Feyi was a young, bright and beautiful young lady who studied Architecture. She was brilliant and graduated with colourful grades in the university. She loved drawing, which motivated her into the course she studied. Her father had been telling her he would bring her to Oladele’s place to greet him because he was the one that helped him and his family.
She walked in slowly, with her dark and hefty father. She was smiling in the brown gown she had on her and her brown purse. She had many purses and handbags of various types and colours which she did use to match any cloth she had on.
Prof had called Oladele earlier to know if he was around because he wanted to show him who her daughter was, at the same time, he wanted to know how Tolani was.
“Oladele!” He grinned and increased his pace on seeing his friend.
“Ha.. you came so early..” Oladele grinned as well and stood up.
“Welcome, how are you beautiful angel?” He sighted Feyi behind her father.
Feyi bent smiling. “I’m good sir, good day.”
“Come on, have your seat dear. I can read it in your utterances, hope you’ve not gone there to be speaking like them.
Feyi chuckled and sat down. “Not at all sir.”
“You better sit too..” Oladele addressed Prof.
Prof sat down as well. “Where’s my son?”
Oladele sat down. “He just came back from office and went upstairs. What would you like to eat?”
“I’m okay..” Prof. said.
“Who’s asking you? I’m asking my princess.”
Feyi was flattered. She grinned, exposing her beautiful set of white teeth. “I’m alright.”
“Tolani!” Oladele shouted his son’s name so he could come and greet his friend and ‘the princess’ as she was termed.
Tolani rushed down the stairs. He knew they had a visitor or more. He had taken his bath, he was just trying to check Facebook again if he’d find the name – Olasupo Stella.
‘Who are these?’ He asked within himself smiling as he saw the Prof. He bent and greeted him. “Good evening sir.”
“Wao! Tola has grown bigger!” Prof. admired him standing. “Same as his so-called wife.” Oladele said, jokingly.
Prof. and Oladele were so close before they missed their contacts. Then, Tolani was always called Feyi’s husband.
“Do you know her?” His father pointed at Feyi.
He gave a long look at her, as well as Feyi.
Tolani kept staring at Feyi, likewise Feyi herself. “I don’t think so.” Tolani replied his father that he didn’t recognize her.
“I knew it, what of you, Feyi?” He asked her.
“I recognize him, I still know him.” She smiled.
How? Tolani wondered and smiled too. “How was Manchester?” Prof asked Tolani.
They continued discussing with him and offered him a seat to sit as well.
It was already dark when Tolani walked down to his father’s room to ask him questions. He’s been bothered and didn’t want any trouble whatsoever. He was allowed to come in. His father was trying to send a mail when Tolani arrived.
Feyi and her father had gone some hours before that time so he felt he should ask his father the question that had been bothering him since he saw Feyi.
“Hope you enjoyed office today?” Oladele asked his son.
Tolani sat down calmly. “Yes dad.”
“So you really couldn’t recognize Feyi?”
“Dad, I came because of her. I’ve watched movies, read stories and I don’t like what majority of parents are doing, out there. I hope you aren’t planning anything like making her my wife or something?” He asked frankly.
Oladele chuckled. “Tolani!” He exclaimed on his name and stood up. “I’m not a father like those out there. See, I don’t discriminate. You can marry whosoever you wish to, she only came here to greet me.”
Tolani was relieved. He smiled and glimpsed at his father. “That’s a good idea.” He said.
Oladele also smiled. He wasn’t expecting the question his came to ask him. He wouldn’t do that, to his only son.
“Let me get going, I have some things to thrash in the office tomorrow.” He said and stood up.
Stella yawned and stood up from the sofa she laid on. It was already some minutes past nine, she was expecting Favour to return back from where she went to.
She told Stella she wanted to visit her father’s place if he’d recognize her and give her some money. It was just then, she entered slowly. “How was it?” Stella quickly asked on sighting her.
“Still the same..” she sat down, seemed tired.
“Nawa oh.” Stella said and hissed.
“See, I got to know there’s a vacancy at Diamond hotel while coming, let’s go and try that, early tomorrow.” Favour said.
“This was what my father did that later sent him to grave. I hope I’m safe..” she sighed.
“We’ll be prayerful, nothing is going to happen!” Fave assured her.
“For the time being, you’ll go and manage my Diamond Hotel. I don’t know why you children of nowadays love having your own company, set up. Can’t you discard Architecture and oversee my hotels?” Prof. Olakunle addressed his daughter, Feyi.
“That’s what I wish, how would I go abroad to study and at the end be the Overseer of Hotels?”
“No problem, I’ll take you there tomorrow for introduction.”
“Alright Dad.” Feyi smiled happily
