DR. CHARLES DROVE IN TO MEET HIS FRIENDS, JEFF AND LLOYD AT THE BAR WHERE THEY WERE DRINKING AND DISCUSSING THE LAST PARTY AND ALL THE FUN THAT WENT DOWN IN IT WITH THE LADIES.

JEFF

My man! The doctor himself (he stretched out his hand for a handshake)

DR. CHARLES

Guy what’s up! (He shook the two of them)

JEFF

Hey! (Calling on the barman) Get him a glass.

DR. CHARLES

No! No!! No!!! Just get me a bottle of water, please. (Referring to the waiter)

LLOYD

Guy how far, are you not drinking?

CHARLES

No, I am going back to the hospital now; I have some patients waiting for me. I just took a few minutes break to see you guys.

JEFF

You see why I can never be a doctor, (they all laughed in unity). Guy, you missed. The last party was a bomb; I’ve never seen the kind before.

LLOYD

Meehn! The party no get part two. The babes were out of this world….

DR. CHARLES

Actually, that’s why I am here. Jeff, you’re my very good friend and I’ve known your family for a long time now. Your dad is a good man and he meant well for you, he loves you more than you could ever imagine…..

JEFF

Hey! Hey!! I don’t like the direction this our conversation is taking. What’s going on man?

DR. CHARLES

Your dad is super angry with you right now. From the tone of his voice, I can tell he’s really upset. How could you leave your sister alone to handle a multi-million dollar contract? What if she’s not this smart enou……..

JEFF

Hold on man, you mean my dad called you to lay a complaint about me? As my what?

DR.CHARLES

Calm down, it’s not the way you’re taking it. He only called me as your friend, to talk to you friend to friend, that’s all.

LLOYD

But he said he was sorry, what else does the old man want?

DR.CHARLES

It’s not just all about saying sorry, it’s about saying it like you mean it and showing it. See, you need to get more serious with the company and your life in general……

JEFF

Chill man, you are beginning to sound like my father and it’s not cool at all. So, we have to change this topic. (they had few seconds of silence)

DR. CHARLES

(checked his time) alright then, I have to take my leave now, I will see you guys soon

LLOYD

There’s a get-together tonight, hope you’re coming?

DR. CHARLES

No, I won’t. I will be in the theatre all through the night. Bye. (exchanged a handshake and left, immediately Jeff’s phone rang)

JEFF

Guess who is calling. Mimi, mtcheew (he sighed)

LLOYD

Answer na. I thought you love that girl.

JEFF

Love? Guy, there’s nothing like love in my dictionary; I am just chilling with her. That girl is a true definition of fun. She does anything you want, anyhow you want it.

LLOYD

That’s the real thing bro.

JEFF

But she’s too all over me, I don’t like it. She wants to know everything I am doing, where I go, who I’m with, what I eat, no that’s too much (his phone kept ringing).

LLOYD

Mimi loves you, bro. Just take your call

JEFF

Hi, pumpkin, how you doing…….am okay………I’m actually….erm…..in the office, yea office……..no no, I’m act-ua-ll-y very busy now…… yes of course. ….will definitely call you when I’m done….bye sunshine….me too…..okay I love you too. Bye. (Call end) Lloyd, we need to leave this place now. That girl is an evil spirit, she will come here now. (he dropped some money on the table and they left).

HENRY CAME TO DROP SOPHIA AT HOME. THEY STAYED FOR A WHILE IN THE CAR DISCUSSING, VERY HAPPY LIKE TWO LOVE BIRDS, WHILE ANNE WAS ANGRILY PEEPING THROUGH THE WINDOW, THEY GAVE EACH OTHER A WARM GOODBYE HUG AND KISS, AND SHE WENT INSIDE.

ANNE

Is that not Henry our madam’s son?

SOPHIA

Yes he’s the one

 ANNE

So when did this one start?

SOPHIA

Which one?

ANNE

Stop the pretence, I saw you kissing, hugging and romancing in the car. Are you guys dating?

SOPHIA

I can’t really say. Something like that

ANNE

What do you mean something like that? When did you even know this guy that you’re already all over him like that?

SOPHIA

I met Henry a long time ago, as soon as I started work with our madam. I never wanted to have anything with him, but I later discovered he’s a good guy and cares so much about me. He’s my prince charming (sounding so excited)

ANNE

Hmmmmm! So, you mean you’ve been with this guy all these while and you never told me, why? I thought we are friends?

SOPHIA

Of course, we are. I am so sorry. It was all henry’s idea; he suggested we keep it to ourselves until we’re sure of what it is. He doesn’t want his mum to know about it at that early stage because we don’t know how she will take it. Am sorry my friend, I didn’t mean it that way. I said am sorry now (giggling her friend, trying to make her smile),

ANNE

It’s okay, I understand. So does madam know about it now?

SOPHIA

No. he said he will tell her himself.

ANNE

Ok ooh. Just be careful. (With a pretentious face)

SOPHIA

Ohh thank you dear, you’re the best. (Hugged her)

  ———————————————————————————

 

JEFF AND MIMI ON THE BED  KISSING, DRINKING AND SMOKING.

MIMI

I want the whole of you. I want to be with you forever. Please, don’t leave me.

JEFF

I love being with you baby. You are everything I want in my life right now

MIMI

And you are everything I want in my life forever, but you’re not giving me all your attention

JEFF

Shhh! Just kiss me…… Mmmh just like that yeah……. you are the sweetest of them all (as the kissing continues)

MIMI

I love you so much Jeff (kissing his neck and ear)

JEFF

Come over here (turned her over and they made mad love)

                                                                                                              ———————————————————————————-

 

 

SOPHIA WAS RESTING ON THE BED WHEN HER PHONE RANG, MY BOOBOO CALLING.

SHE PICKED AND HE TOLD HER TO DRESS UP BECAUSE HE IS COMING TO TAKE HER OUT. YEEEH! SHE WAS SO EXCITED. SHE HURRIEDLY DRESSED AND HENRY CAME AND PICKED HER UP. HE TOOK HER TO SOME EXCITING PLACES. THEY HAD SOME DESERTS, LATER WENT TO A FANCY RESTAURANT AND HAD A DELICIOUS MEAL, AND FINALLY LANDED HER IN A VERY EXQUISITE BOUTIQUE FOR HER SHOPPING. IT WAS AS IF SHE WAS IN ANOTHER WORLD. INSIDE HER HEART, SHE SAID TO HERSELF, THIS IS INDEED TRUE LOVE. AFTER A FUN FILLED OUTING HE DROPPED HER AT HOME AND TOOK OFF. AS SHE WAS GOING THROUGH THE THINGS HENRY BOUGHT FOR HER ANNE WALKED IN

ANNE

Sophia, what are we celebrating this one you’re shopping every day like this?

SOPHIA

My dear, it’s Henry o. He called me this evening and said we should go out and these are what I came back with. Wait, I got you something (she picked some stuff, handed over to her and stepped out of the room)

ANNE

Hmmm! Thank you o

I’ve been dying for this guy to notice me all these years that I’ve been working for his mum, but he never did, instead, he’s following Sophia that came yesterday like flies. What does this girl have that I don’t have; I am even more beautiful than her. Could it be that this girl is using jazz? Peace might be right, I didn’t believe her when she said it…..(speaking to herself)

  —————————————————————————-

 

 

MADAM CALLED SOPHIA TO HER OFFICE

SOPHIA

Ma, you called for me

MADAM

Yes, sit down, please. You see, I’ve not known you that much, but the little time you’ve spent here, I can say that you are a good girl. My son told me something about you and him. So I want to hear it from you, do you really love him?

SOPHIA

(Shy and proud of herself) I love him a whole lot, ma. Henry is a good man with a golden heart, I really love him ma.

MADAM

That’s all I wanted to hear. He’s my only child. His father died when he was just six. I refused to remarry because I wanted to be with him. Henry is everything I have in this life, so I want nothing but the best for him, his happiness is what matters the most to me. I’ve accepted you. As far as he is happy, I am happy but I’m going to put my eyes on you to be sure you are not playing pranks with my son. You can go back to your work, we will continue this our conversation later.

SOPHIA

Ok ma (she stood up), thank you so much ma. I really appreciate your kindness and good heart towards me and I promise I will never disappoint you. (and she left her office)

Meanwhile, still in the shop, Ann was sitting quietly thinking when Peace approached her

PEACE

Anne, what is your problem, I noticed you’ve not been yourself for quite some time now, what is it?

ANNE

My sister, I am just thinking where I went wrong or what I did wrong, is it now a crime to help a friend?

PEACE

I don’t understand, what happened?

ANNE

Peace, I have been thinking about what you said the other day about Sophia. I think Sophia is really using something, but I can’t just place my finger on what it is exactly. Apart from capturing our madam’s heart, do you know that Sophia is going out with Henry?

PEACE

Which Henry are you talking about?

ANNE

The same Henry you and I know, our madam’s son.

PEACE

How? Are you serious?

ANNE

As if that’s not enough, they are even planning on getting married.

PEACE

Getting wh-what? No now. Anne, we can’t just sit down here, fold our hands and watch them get married. We have to do something

ANNE

I’ve been thinking. What do you think we should do?

PEACE

(she thought for few seconds) I have an idea (whispering something to her ear then a customer called)


 

 

Writer’s note: No matter how good you think you are, someone, somewhere will still not like you. No matter how much you try.

Be yourself. Don’t over stress yourself trying to please everyone because that is one task you can never win.

There are some women who are much more better than some men. An example is Jenny, kudos to ==her.

Appreciate all your children and treat them equally irrespective of their gender. Don’t neglect a girl child. She might be your pillar tomorrow.

Do you think Sophia’s friend Anne is capable of harming her irrespective of their friendship? What are friends for?

Do you think Henry really loves Sophia?

I’m very sorry for not keeping to time, as I promised. It’s due to some Nigeria factors, light issue. I sincerely apologise. I promise it will never happen again.

I hope you enjoyed this episode as much as I did.

Stay tuned for the next episode, I know it will be more exciting.

Much love from me to you.

Share is love. Remember to share our posts with your friends and enemies.
