Travails Of An Abused Woman Episode 11


​“Knock knock” Jilha knocked on Doctor Manuel’s office with his heart slamming against his chest. It was a month now since he had been trying to speak to Emerald but he failed miserably each time. His friend, Jerry then advised him to speak to Doctor Manuel since it was obvious Doctor Manuel and Emerald were related. So he summoned courage and went to her office.
“Come in the door is open.” Jilha went in and closed the door. 
“Good afternoon doctor.” Doctor Manuel smiled. 
“Yes, Jilha what can I do for you? Sit down.” He sighed
 “Well, I came to discuss the lady that comes here with you, the one you call Emmy.” Doctor Manuel nodded.
 “Oh! And what about her?” Jilha sighed again. 
“The thing is doctor, I really like her, I am not trying to break her heart or use her, I want her very much, my heart melts whenever I see her, please help me talk to her, I am not a bad person ma’am.”
Doctor Manuel sighed heavily. “Emmy has some trust issues but the decision is hers. I will tell her to give you a listening ear.”
He smiled and sighed. “Oh! Thank you very much ma, you won’t regret it.” He stood up to leave. Doctor Manuel called him back. 
“Doctor Jilha, if you hurt her in anyway, not only me but her brother will make your life a living hell. You can leave now.” Jilha nodded and left quickly feeling excited. The next time Emerald came, Doctor Manuel persuaded her to listen to Jilha. 
“Come on Emmy, he is a good guy believe me, I can vouch for him, he is a very good man please Emmy.” Emerald sighed.
 “Alright aunty, I trust you, I will speak to him.”
Doctor Manuel smiled. “Thank you dearie.” Emerald later went to speak to Jilha. 
“Hello, thank you for listening to me hmmm….. I don’t know your name.” Emerald rolled her eyes. 
“It’s Emerald.” Jilha smiled.
 “Wow nice name for a beauty.” Jilha said.

“Emerald was getting irritated by now.
 “Please get to the point, I have important things to do.” He smiled again. 
“Alright. Emerald, I really like you, ever since the first time I saw you, I knew you were for me, please give me a chance.” Emerald scoffed. 
“Wow! The last guy that said that to me jilted me, what makes you an exception?” Jilha begged and held her hands. 
“Emerald I promise you, I won’t do that to you, please, I am begging you, no other woman has me enthralled like you do, I won’t let you down.”
Emerald sighed. “You really are a persistent one. Alright, I will sleep over it, we will see won’t we.” Jilha beamed.
 “Thank you so much, thanks for considering me. I will await your answer. Have a nice day.” After their discussion, Emerald decided to give Jilha a chance. She told Jofin about it.
 “What do you think Jo? I don’t want another heart break, am scared.” Jofin frowned as he thought deeply. 
“Well aunty vouched for him already, he seems like a good person to me, I will say go for it. I will just give him a warning that’s all.” Emerald grunted.
 “No. Jo don’t, I still remember what you did to Alexis.”
Jofin hissed. “Don’t mention that b—–d’s name. Don’t worry, I won’t do anything to him.” Emerald smiled. 
“Okay, thank you Jofin.”
