A dairy was lying on her laps; it was a secret diary where she recorded happenings, good or bad, she wrote:
I thank God for making me happy again. It’s been five years of a blissful marriage, thank you for my sweet, loving and supportive husband- he has been more than a friend! We don’t have kids yet but I’m not worried and I’m sure that, that time will come. All I promise to do is to enjoy each day as it comes and make the best man in the world happy!
She covered the diary as the lips gave way for a delightful smile; she brought out her phone and sent a text;
I LOVE YOU, THE WORLD’S BEST HUBBY!
Within a minute, a reply came in;
I LOVE YOU TOO, BABY….THE ONLY MELODY MY FEET DANCES TO.
That day was their wedding anniversary but her husband had gone to Abuja to cover the International business summit in Abuja; he was one of the country’s biggest photographers and wouldn’t be back until the next day.
He had made her happy that she forgot with ease her torrid relationship with Dapo; her experience with Dapo made her run from men; at some point in her life she thought of being a lesbian but having read from the Bible that it led to damnation she resulted to remain a single woman all her life but her husband came and changed everything, how he did that was puzzling. “I know Dapo did hurt you so much but the best you can do for yourself is let go and be happy, I am here for you and I promise never to leave you” he said to her during their courtship.
Her phone rang, she had just finished dinner and it was her husband, laughter was heard as she spoke on the phone. After the call, she felt very much alive; who wouldn’t with a husband like Silver? On the bed flipping, through their wedding album she remembered how Silver proposed to her, it was dramatic but beautiful; it was crazy that it left grappled by embarrassment. Silver had bought a ticket for them to attend a music cum comedy show and the star artiste was the award winning Innocent Idibia,Tu Face, he was Michelle’s best artiste,
Danielle: “You and tu face sha? Make Annie no catch you o!! I trust Annie, she go do you wetin she do those other women. You go just see yourself inside the next bus to your village.”
Michelle always went crazy whenever she listened to Tu Face’s music.
Tu Face came on stage and Michelle didn’t know when she jerked and screamed, it was the first time she was watching him perform live. Later that night Silver said,
Silver: “See as you bin dey fall my hand, that your chicken dance, after all the mouth wey you make about being a great dancer. One guy just dey our back dey laff” he joked.
Michelle: “Lemme joor. I couldn’t control myself babe Ee pain me say I no get opportunity snap with Tu Baba. facebook, Instagram and Twitter for hear am.”
Silver: “No try am o, snap with who? I no wan see your face for there.”
Michelle: “Jealousy baby!” they laughed about it.
Tu Face smiled as the crowd went clamorous, especially, the ladies,
Tu Face: “Nothing dey happen,” he giggled, “my pipo nothing dey happen” he repeated; the crowd cheered him then he continued holding the microphone closer to his mouth, “See eh, before I start tu dey sing there’s something special going down here tonight. My pipo, it’s gonna be so, so amazing,” he screamed and jumped down walked towards Silver and Michelle, she became inert as Tu Face stood before them- she was star struck. He handed Silver an engagement ring, all eyes were on them- they were shown on the humongous screen, Silver knelt holding up the ring said,
Silver: “Will you be my wife?”
She couldn’t say a word tears had stolen her voice, the crowd yelled as they hugged each other, Tu Face gave them a hug. It was an unbelievable moment. The proposal went viral; it was on all social media platforms. She held the album close to her chest,
Michelle: “Oh, crazy, Sly! I love you bae!”
Its 9: 30 pm, quickly, she rushed into the bathroom, her eyes were already heavy. Michelle had just finished taking her bath, as a song rang out of her phone; she quickly rushed for the phone, it was a foreign number,
Michelle: “Who could be calling me with an international number,” she stared at the phone on the bed and didn’t pick, the call came in again but hesitated before picking, “Yes? Who is this?” when the voice spoke, it was a man’s voice, she ended the call and flung the phone on the bed shuddering; it was a nightmare- the voice was that of a ghost buried in the grave of her past.
Michelle: “Noo,this can’t be happening! Nooo na!” agitated, she walked to the fridge and took out a big sized Eva bottle water, opened it, stuck its mouth in hers and dropped it after emptying all of its contents- she did that within two minutes and craved for more but the belly had gotten to its gauge. The room was arctic but she was sweating, expressionless, she dragged her feet, sat by the edge of the bed as the voice re-echoed, “heyie, it’s me…I’ll be coming back home finally,” it rang out in baritone.
Michelle: “where’s home?”
Quickly, she ran into the bathroom and had a frigid bath; she came out feeling better but as she stepped out her phone rang again and it was the same number,
Michelle: “Oh my God! This can’t be happening!”She cried out, took her phone and switched it off, “Oh, God help me, please!” the voice kept blaring in her head.
Thirty minutes later, she dozed off but jolted out of sleep panting, it was a night mare; rubbing her face with her hands she could feel the tears, she had been crying in the dream. She had lost her younger sister to in ghastly auto crash,
Michelle: “God forbid!”
She knelt down and made her short prayer, got hold of the phone and put it on before it could finish booting a call rushed in, it was her husband,
Michelle: “Hey, babe!” but she heard someone else’s voice, “What!?” she screamed and burst into tears.
Silver was involved in a motor accident along Lagos-Ibadan express way, the person that called said all the victims had been rushed to University College Hospital but it wasn’t mentioned if Silver was still alive or dead. Without thinking, she grabbed her car keys threw a gown on and on barefoot she drove out of the house.
