HEART OF GOLD : Episode 1 – 10



Frank got to Liz’ apartment and knocked on the door. She was already half asleep when she heard the knock on the door. She peeped through the window and saw that it was Frank and her heart skipped a beat. She knew that she had been unfair to him by refusing to go and visit him at the hospital even though she was the one who had pushed him against the wall and so she refused to open the door.

Frank: “I know you are in there, Liz. Open up” he said , banging harder on the door.

Liz cringed in horror.
“Oh my God, I am in trouble, he is here for revenge” she thought.
Frank continued knocking.

Liz: “go away, leave me alone, I cannot open the door” she said to him.

Frank: “why? I came in peace” he said raising his hands over his head unconsciously.

Liz: “look, I am sorry the way I treated you okay? Please forgive me, I was afraid of what you would do to me if I visit you in the hospital” she said.

Frank: “listen, I have forgotten all that. I am here because I miss you so much. Can you just open the door please?”

Liz: “are you sure?” she asked suspiciously.

Frank: “Positive. I had it in mind to revenge but now, I have decided to forgive you. If I meant any harm, I won’t come knocking for everyone to hear me” he explained.

After some thoughts, she opened the door gently and allowed him in, leaving it ajar.

Frank: “Why are you leaving your door opened? Are you not afraid of mosquitoes? Or are you afraid that I will harm you?” he said closing the door after her.

Liz: “what do you want?” she asked him, standing by the door.

Frank: “like I said I miss you and I am here to see you” he said again.

Liz: “But why are you coming by this time? I mean why this night?”

Frank: “I couldn’t come during the day because my best friend and roommate monitor my movement after I was discharged because they think that I was involved in some fight with some bad boys on campus and that was why they came to my house and jammed my head against the wall before I passed out”

“You…you mean you didn’t tell them that what happened was between me and you?” she stuttered.

Frank: “if I had told my people and my friends that you were the one who almost killed me, probably you would still be in Police detention by now” he said.

Liz: “I am sorry; I didn’t mean to do that to you. I…I didn’t mean to push you that hard. Please forgive me”

Frank: “sorry? Is that all you have to say? What if I had died? Would sorry have brought me back to life?”

Liz: “I was afraid that you had died and I knew that nobody would believe that it was a mistake, that is why I ran away” she said fearfully.

Frank: “accepted. When you heard that I didn’t die and that I was in the hospital, what did you do? Why did you abandon me? Was it too much to visit me in the hospital?”

Liz: “I am sorry, I was afraid of what your reactions would be if you see me” she said coming close to him.

Frank: “It’s okay. Do you still love me?” he asked.

Liz: “I love you more than you can imagine” she said sincerely and she meant it.

Frank: “then let’s make love, I will soon graduate and will it be fair for me to leave without touching you?”

Liz came close to him and placed her arms around his shoulders.
“You know that I am not one for s*x until marriage. If you love me and have a future for me after this university, then you should wait. After all, that is what we would be doing after marriage” she said.

Frank: “baby please now, just allow me enter Jerusalem once now” he said drawing her close.

Liz: “you can play around Isreal o, that is f0replay but to enter Jerusalem, that has to be after marriage” she said.

That night, they slept in each other’s arms and Frank was contented to sleep beside her even though there was no form of int!macy between them. Spending the night beside her alone was enough to erase all the memory of pain and anger he felt about her abandoning him in the hospital.

A month later, Frank was in his room with two of his friends discussing their relationships and they could not help but make a mockery of him and his girlfriend after he told them that she had not allowed him make love to her.

Sas: “I can’t believe that you still love this girl even though she has denied you access to her body. I am sure she is busy giving it to another person free of charge” he taunted him.

Frank: “no, she is a v!rgin. Liz cannot be sleeping with another man” he defended her.

Tam: “if it is not the fact that it is an insult, I would have said that you are stupid. In this generation, you think that a girl like Liz is a v!rgin. See ehn, let me tell you, lecturers as well as students dey f–k that girl” he said.

“That is not true” Frank said.

Tam: “how do you know? There is a way to find out, though” he said.

Frank: “how?”

Tam: “we will help you organize a r@pe session and you will r@pe her, only you”

Frank: “What! Are you out of your mind? Won’t she know that I am the one?” he asked thinking about it.

Tam: “Of course we will wear mask, she will never know” he said.


Few weeks after Declan and his wife left his family house, his wife seeing that his refusal to give his father the kidney was causing problems for him and his family decided to talk to her husband.

Stacey: “sweetheart, I think you should reconsider the decision of giving your father one of your kidneys” she said to him after dinner that evening.

Declan: “what do you mean?” he asked looking up at her.

Stacey: “well, I think that you should give it to him” she said and paused to see his reaction.

Declan: “what are you saying? I thought you were the one who advised me not to donate to him anymore” he said.

Stacey: “yes, but since we went there and you informed him about it, you have not been having it easy with them. Yes, I know that they have been calling you and threatening to cut off all ties with you if you don’t donate the kidney to him. In fact, your father even went ahead to say if he dies, you have no right to bury him as the first son that you are. I think this is not healthy for a family like yours so maybe you should just give in to their desires” she said.

“No, I will not. They can go ahead and cut off all ties, I don’t care. I already told them that I will not give my kidney and that is final. If my father dies and I go there to bury him, let me see the person that will stop me. That is when they will know that I can be mad” he said.

Stacey: “I understand but you have to consider me too. Already your people think that I am the one who doesn’t want you to help your father” she said.

Declan: “oh no you are not the one. You actually opened my eyes to see the reality of what could happen after I give out one of my kidneys and I made up my mind against it after thinking about it for days”

Stacey: “hmmn…nobody will believe that, my husband. Remember that you already agreed to it before you married me, now they think I am the one who made you change your mind”

Declan: “well, what is wrong with it even if you are the one who made me change my mind? You are my wife for crying out loud” he said.

Stacey: “it is too early for me to start giving your people the impression that I influence your decision. Do you know that your step mother has stopped picking my calls after our last visit?” she asked rhetorically.

Declan: “and so? She can stop picking your calls even in her dream too. How does that stop you from marrying me?” he said, coming to sit close to her.

Stacey: “but baby…” she started to say before he interrupted her.

Declan: “shhh…don’t bother your pretty head over my family problems. We have our lives to live” he said and brushed her lips with a k!ss.

The two couples got entangled in a passionate k!ssing session until a knock on the door forced them apart.

Stacey: “I will get it” she said and moved to the door.

When she opened the door, she was surprised to see her father in law’s personal assistant holding a bag and standing behind him.

Stacey: “welcome, sir” she greeted her father in law and ushered him and the personal assistant in.

Declan: “my dad? Wow! What a pleasant surprise” he said getting up.

Mr Ogar: “you may leave” he said to the personal assistant who dropped the bag he was holding, bowed courteously and left.

Declan: “you are welcome sir. We weren’t expecting you, all the same, welcome sir” he heard himself say.

“erm daddy, what do I offer you?” she asked staring at her husband.

Mr Ogar: “I am here to….”

Question: Do you think they will succeed with the rape? What do you think Mr Ogar wants?
