… Valerie’s POV …
“Wow! This is beautiful… Vale.. You mean Iyke proposed to you??” Eva said happily.
“Yes girl.. Wow.. I was like.. Is this for real?” I laughed.
She was in my office, sitting at the edge of my table.
While I sat on the chair, my fingers stretched to her face as she admired my engagement ring.
“Babe, does it mean that Iyke had really changed?” She said.
“He has and you can’t believe how happy I am.” I laughed.
“I just hope he really is.. You know you deserve the best dear.” Eva said and I smiled.
“I love Iyke babe…and he loves me too.” I said.
I remembered, “Eva guess what??” I said.
She rolled her eyes.
“You don come again. Now what is it this time? cos Im sure I won’t guess right.” She said.
I laughed. “Joy’s birthday is today. Can you believe that?” I said.
“Are you serious? How did you find out? He told you?”
“Yes.. You know mom called to remind me Michael travel date was on 14 december. Joy overheard and began crying.. I had to ask him the issue and he told me 14th is his birthday and also his teddy bear’s birthday. But Eva im thinking Stella isn’t really a teddy bear but someone who was really special to him. Maybe his girlfriend or his ‘Wi.fe.” I separated the ‘wife’, maybe cos I don’t think he’s married yet.
Such an adult-baby.
“Seriously babe, don’t you think we should celebrate this guy’s birthday?” Eva asked.
“I’m getting him somethings anyway.” I said.
“Somethings like?” She asked.
“Ohhh..Birthday cake, another Stella.. and the rest…clothes.” I said.
“Another Stella?” She asked.
I laughed, “I mean another Teddy bear.” I said.
“Im seriously coming with you. Like I’ve not seen Joy ever since that day. I still laugh when I recall how he reacted seeing lots of people in.” She laughed.
“He’s funny and weird.” I laughed along.
Eva’s phone rang…
“Emeka.” She said.
“Wow..” I smiled.
She picked the call and placed the phone on her right ear.
She was smiling..I noticed.
“Emeka..” She called.
I rolled my eyes.
Can’t she just call him a r0mantic name huh?
“Huh? A date tonight? Well okay.” She said.
I watched her.
Emeka wants to take her out on a date tonight?
“Okay.. bye. See you.” She said and the call ended.”
“Emeka loves to give me headache. He’s begging for me to go with him to a friend’s party tonight.” She said.
“Wow.. That’s great. You should go with him. He really needs you.” I said.
She rolled her eyes.
“He worry me alot.” She said.
“Emeka loves you, just shut up girl.” I said.
“So tell me, what’s gonna be the colour of the day? When are we meeting your parents and his?” She asked, smiling..
I hit her playfully on her arm.
“Soon.” I said and winked.
It was just few minutes to my work-over time, when a knock came.
“Come in.” I answered and my office door opened.
“Goodevening doctor Valerie Orlando.” She greeted with a smile.
“Thanks Intern Maureen Graneson. Do you have a message for me?” I asked with a smile like hers.
She walked forward.
“Matron Juliet said you needed my presence.” She said.
Oh.. That was right.
“But that was hours ago.” I said.
“Im sorry Doctor. I totally forgot after helping her out in her office.” She said.
“It’s okay. I had the issue solved already.. Well..” I said and glanced at the quite unkept files on my desk.
I had needed her to help me search for a file, but after waiting for a while for her, I searched it myself.
I found the file but arranging the heaps of other files back is quite an issue.
“…Could you help me in arranging those files?” I asked and she smiled.
“Yes doctor. Thank you.” She said and went over to them.
“..So Maureen, Are you an halfcaste. You so look like one.” I asked.
“My grandmother is an Isrealite. My dad took her resemblance.” She said.
“Oh.. your dad is an halfcaste and that means you took his resemblance as well.” I said.
“Yes.” She answered.
I smiled, “I have an halfcaste friend as well. He’s birthday is today. Im rushing this, so I could go get him something for his birthday.” I said.
She paused what she’s doing.
“An halfcaste friend who’s birthday is today?” She asked.
“Yeahh.. Actually we recently became friends.” I said.
“Okay.” She said.
“Happy birthday to him.” She said.
Minutes later she was done.
“Anything else to do for you doctor?” She asked.
“No Maureen. Thanks for that.” I said.
She smiled, “Alright. Goodnight doctor. I’m leaving.” She said.
“Bye Maureen.” I said.
She turned and walked out, closing the door gently.
“Time to get going.” I breathed.
I drove straight to Shoprite mall.
It was kinda close..but not too close.
I needed to suprise Joy for his birthday.
I wonder how old he is now.
Will he know just like he know his birthday?
I stepped down from my car and closed the door.
Hanging my little white chain purse on my shoulder, I walked into the mall..
It wasn’t crowded. I like that.
I will buy a blue creamed cake.
Buy a big blue teddy bear that would be named ‘Stella’
Buy him more clothes and a really nice shoes.
Drinks and popcorn, icecream and baloons.
I know he’ll love them.
I can buy a nice hairband and hair cream for his hair.
Ohh… that’s too much.
Thank God it’s just six o’clock.
I turned to the clothes rail first.
Five shirts….Three shorts…two trousers.
A cute slippers.
He look more good on shorts..
Okay, boxers too. Hahaha
I could buy Iyke a nice watch and a necklace.
He’ll love em.
But walking in, My eyes fell on something worst than I’ve ever saw!
Iyke…. That was Iyke over there.. His hand around a girl’s waiste.
They were searching through the rails of price tagged bags..
Their back was on me, but that was Iyke.
I bought that shirt and trouser on him.
I stood perplexed as I watched the girl grab a cream coloured channel bag, turned and kssed him.
He responded by covering her a$$ with his palms.
They walked away to another section of dresses..
I felt my world shattering..
I felt my skin peeling.
I was feeling so hot with anger..
So cold with regret.
Isn’t this Iyke who just proposed to me?
I rushed out…. I held the tears, till I was in my car, then I shut the door and bursted into tears.
That was when I saw his car.
It was him!
Iyke was still cheating on me.
How could he use me.
Why did he make me believe he’s changed.
I spent long minutes there in my car crying… till I saw them.
Iyke and the btch..
She had two filled up bags and they laughed as they walked towards his car.
I bursted into cries again..
He didn’t even notice my car.
Before they went in, He kssed her.
He kssed her three good times and squeezed her a$$ like forever.
I felt heartbroken.
I’ve beem fooled all this while..
I was loving a life time cheater.
A cheater who would never stop cheating!
Eva was right.
Eva was so right..
They finally entered his car and he drove off.
Without still knowing this was my car.
He didnt even glance.
When I couldn’t cry more… I turned on my car engine and drove out..
I’m going to his house.
To deal with both him and the fool with him..
Iyke can’t keep on making me feel this way.
I dropped everything I wanted to get for Joy’s birthday.
Iyke had just shattered my happiness.
Iyke is still cheating on me!
After all I’ve done to him.
After all the promises he made never to hurt me again.
After engaging me with this fking ring!
“Do Iyke really love me?” I asked myself.
“What if Eva was right…Iyke had been using me.” I asked myself again.
I wiped the tears in my eyes.
I’ll find out the truth tonight.
I got to his house and drove in.
It has no gate, Making it easier.
I got down and scanned around.
His car isn’t here….
He didn’t come home with the btch right?
Anyway, I walked to the door and pressed the doorbell.
I’ve cleaned up my tears, making it apear like nothing’s wrong.
When it seem like no one was coming, I pressed the doorbell again.
Im sure there’s someone inside.
The interior lights are on.
Yeap, there is, cos at that minute, someone opened the door.
She smiled at me.
She had a blue singlet over a white bu.mshort.
“Hello Valerie.” She said and stretched forth her hand for a handshake.
“What are you doing here?” I asked.
I can’t believe Iyke had her in his house and also is out with someone else at the same time!!
“Miss Engaged.” She said and glanced at the ring on my finger.
“Get out of my way!” I seethe and she shrugged and did.
I walked in and stood at the centre of the sitting room with my hands on my hips, scanning around angrily.
She chuckled again, went over to a couch and sat down, crossed her legs and lighted a cigarette.
I breathed and walked towards the bedroom.
I saw her big box beside the his wardrobe.
So she’s been here all this while.
Her shoes… Her bags.. Her things.
Does this mean Iyke played games on me.
Does this mean.. Lizzy was the claimed Chioma?
I rushed out….
She was smoking.
“You were the Chioma right?” I asked.
She puffed hair and smiled.
“You are nothing but a fool.. Just like I was.” She said.
“What the h.ell do you mean by that?” I fired.
“You don’t shout at Lizzy when you dey talk to her to avoid messing up your pretty face.” She warned.
“You don’t know who I am? do you?” I barked.
She scoffed, “You are nothing but a fool.” She scoffed and I breathed.
“Why are you here?” She asked.
“How dare you ask me why im here. This is my fiancee’s house. I bought this house for him! I should be the one asking you why the hell you are in my fiancee’s house!” I fired.
She bursted into a weird laugh.
“Financee…. Hahaha…Just answer the question. Im not dragging the house with you..” She said and smoked..
“Why the h.ell are you here?” I yelled.
She snapped up from the couch.
“Because he was my boyfriend too!” She yelled back.
He was her boyfriend?
