“How did you get Emma’s phone?” Cynthia asked Kenzy on the phone.
“I went to the police station to inquire why Emma wanted to kill the guy you were with at the wedding ceremony then i took his phone” Kenzy replied.
“Now what do you want from me? What were you even doing at the ceremony?”
“Mento is my cousin”
“You mean the guy that shoot Nath?!”
“But you never told me!”
“Was it necessary?”
“Whatever! Why are you calling me?!”
“I can’t believe how beautiful you are now” Kenzy licked his lips.
“And what does that suppose to mean?”
“I want us to go back to our relationship”
“You must be joking” Cynthia stood up walking towards the window. “You broke up with me after taking my virginity and you are telling me to reconcile with you. Do u know how it feels? You never loved me, so please, stop dreaming. Moreover, it is too late coz I’m engaged” Cynthia cut the call immediately in anger and switched off the phone.
Nath stared at Joyce likewise Agatha for accepting to bring Cynthia.
“Yes, i will go just to make you happy” Joyce forced out a smile and stood up.
“No, don’t worry” Nath stopped her.
“I disagree, I’ll be back”
“Honey listen…” the mother wanted to say but Joyce had already gone out. She passed Mr Randy and Williams without looking at them. She entered her car and put the key in the ignition but came out again and said, “Daddy, I’ll be back very soon”
“Alright, don’t waste time” the father replied and she drove off.
“Is she the only child you have?” Mr Randy asked Mr Williams.
“Yes” he replied with a smile.
“Wow, she’s just like my only daughter too”
“You mean the one inside?”
“Yes, her name is Agatha”
“That’s good” they smiled in silence.
“Back to what we were saying” Mr Randy began. “Why did you want your daughter to marry that crook knowing very well she doesn’t want him?”
Mr Williams exhaled with a smile and said, “Is a long story” he told him how and why it all happened then he became speechless.
“I can’t imaging having such an agreement with someone” Mr Randy said.
“It was out of poverty and frustration”
“Yes, that’s true” Mr Randy nodded his head. “So, how would you cope now that your account has been frozen?”
Mr Williams laughed. “My account was opened after the first time it got frozen believing by Mr Josh that my daughter would marry his son. So i used the opportunity to transfer much money into a new account with different name”
“Sharp man!!” Mr Randy exclaimed. “That was terrific!! You can as well partner with one of my companies or me totally”
“Really?!” Mr Williams exclaimed.
“Wow! Thank you so much!” they shook hands with smiles on their faces.
Nath has been given the food already. He sat on the edge of the bed eating it while Agatha gently excused herself moving with another food-flask to where Brano was still lying. Nath looked at her to know where she was going because didn’t understand. He wanted to call her but stared at her. Then Mrs Williams smiled and said, “Why are you staring at her?”
“Where is she going to?” Nath threw back the question looking at Mrs Williams.
“She’s going to meet the other guy that was also shot by Emmanuel”
“Another person was shot?!”
“Yes, in fact, he defended your sister by taking the bullet meant for her”
“This is serious! I need to see him!” Nath wanted to stand up but Mrs Williams prevented him.
“Don’t worry, he’s okay. You will see him later”
Nath kept quiet then stared at Agatha again who stood afar beside Brano’s bed. She was surprise why he hasn’t woken up then she gradually kept the food and sat on the bed touching his face. “I hope you get better soon” she murmured. Just then, the doctor entered…
Joyce shed tears as she was driving to Cynthia’s resident but dried it continuously. “It’s very obvious now that i can never win Nath’s heart no matter what” she began to think in tears. “What else should i do? Die for him?” she shook her head sadly and negatively.
At Cynthia’s resident, Joyce parked her car. Just before she walked towards the three stairs that led into the house, Cynthia, who had already seen her through the window came out. Then she stopped and both stared at each other.
“Cynthia, i have come to see you” Joyce’s voice was sound and clear without any emotional attachment. Then Cynthia’s heart skipped thinking she brought a bad news about Nath.
“Is Nath okay?” she asked.
“He wants to see you. That’s why i have come to pick you”
Cynthia thought for a while. “Let me get changed” she went inside.
Cynthia sat in the front seat with Joyce silently as they headed back to the hospital. She looked beautiful in her jean trouser and top. Joyce glanced at her engagement ring and asked, “Are you engaged?”
