Meanwhile Jeffery was soundly asleep next morning, when he was rudely woken up from his sleep, by a phone call from Vivian. He was definitely going to warn her, about calling him this early in the mornings. If she doesn’t enjoy early morning cuddling with her husband, that doesn’t mean she should prevent him from enjoying his, with his own wife.

He kssed a sleeping Jane on her forehead, before he got off the bed, to take the call.

“Hello Vivian” he answered with a grumpy voice.

“Hello Jeffery, sorry to wake you up this early, but I really need to see you”.

Jeffery was supposed to meet with her yesterday, but later cancelled the appointment, because he wanted to spend some time with Jane.

“Vivian, I already told you I need time to talk to Jane first, before you can come over again, I don’t want her to be rude to you again”

“I know, but I really need to see you, there is something else, I need to talk to you about”

“Can’t it wait?” Jeffery didn’t feel like stepping out of the house just yet.

“No, it can’t”

“Vivian it’s weekend” Jeffery told her out of frustration.

“I know, and I’m sorry to disturb you. But I really need to see you” Vivian’s voice was distressed.

“Alright, I’ll meet with you in an hour’s time”

“At T&M restaurant?”


Jane was still sleeping, when he got back into the room, so he quietly went into the bathroom to take his bath.

He had his eyes closed as the water from the shower came on him, when Jane came into the bathroom, stripped and joined him in the shower.

She took his sponge, and washed his back, making Jeffery smile.

When she was done washing his back, he did same for her, and they both helped each other to shower.

“Where are you going this early in the morning?” Jane asked as they both toweled each other’s body dry.

“I’m meeting with Vivian, she called that we meet this morning”


“Baby, you know you need to talk to her right? I know what she did wasn’t right, but considering the circumstances, one can’t really blame her”

“I don’t want to talk about this, not right now”

Jane hung the wet towels, and stepped out of the bathroom.

“I’m off, I will be back soon” Jeffery said to Jane, few minutes later when he was done dressing, he kssed her, and then left to meet with Vivian.

Jane decided to make breakfast after Jeffery had left, but couldn’t get herself to stop thinking about Vivian.

How was she supposed to just accept the fact that she was her mother? Where was she all these years, when she needed her? Where was she when the Okafors constantly raped, and maltreated her? Now she thinks she can just waltz back into her life, after abandoning her as a child, and expect to be welcomed with open arms?

Jane decided to call Amaka and tell her about it, they haven’t spoken, since they had dinner two days ago.

“Hello Jane…” Amaka sobbed into the phone.

“Amaka what is it?” Jane asked. “Are you okay, did something happen?”

“Dele broke up with me…. Jane he broke up with me” Amaka spoke in between sobs.

“What happened, did you two have an issue or something?”

“Yes…. And he broke up with me..”

“Where are you?”

“I’m at the house”

“All right, I’m coming over”

Jane ended the call, and sent Jeffery a text, letting him know she was going over to see Amaka, incase he comes back before her.

Jane changed into a shift dress, grabbed her purse and car keys, before heading out to Amaka’s place.

She already knows how to drive on her own, but Jeffery still insists her car still bears the learning sign, even though she had argued that it’s diminishing the car’s beauty.

When she got to Amaka’s place, she was sitting on the floor of the bedroom, with snotty tissue all over the floor, an indication that she has been crying for long.

Jane sat with her on the floor, put her right hand around her shoulders, rubbing on her arm, as Amaka placed her head on Jane’s shoulders.

“What happened?” She asked.

“He caught me kissing Pius” Amaka said remorsefully.

“Who is that? And why were you kssing him?”

“Pius is my new boss, I told you about”

“Amaka! I thought I warned you about that guy?”

“I know you said I should stay away from him, and I was actually looking for a way to do that”

“Really? How exactly, by kssing him?”

“Jane I’m sorry” Amaka placed her head on Jane’s laps, and started sobbing again.

“You are apologizing to the wrong person, you are supposed to be apologizing to Dele, and not me”

“I already tried to tell him how sorry I am, but he doesn’t want to hear any of it, he said it’s over between us”

“You can’t blame him, he caught you kssing someone else Amaka”

“If I could turn back the hands of time, I would do it, and I wouldn’t have allowed Pius to kiss me” she Lamented.

“It has happened, and you can’t undo it. What are you going to do now?”

“I don’t know Jane… I have sent Dele dozens of text messages, he didn’t reply any of them, and he is no longer taking my calls. I don’t know what else I’m going to do”

“Don’t worry, everything will be fine” Jane rubbed her on her back.

“Jane please, can you help me to beg Dele?” Amaka sat up to look at Jane’s face.

“Please help me tell him I am sorry, tell him I never meant to hurt him, tell him he is the one I want, and not Pius. Jane please I need you to help me talk to him, I’m very sure he will listen to you”

“I need you to be honest with me Amaka, are you sorry because you were caught? If Dele hadn’t seen you kssing Pius, would you have been sorry as you are right now?”

Amaka stared at Jane as she spoke with her, would she really have been sorry if Dele hadn’t caught her with Pius? Would she have told Dele about the kss, or would she have kept it to herself?

“If Dele hadn’t seen you both kissing, would you have stopped your little office romance with Pius? Or would you have continued to play your hide and seek games with him?”

Amaka placed her head on Jane’s laps, and started sobbing afresh, she knew within herself, that she would have continued to play her little office ro.mance if Dele had not caught her with Pius. She didn’t like Pius enough to date him, but a part of her just yearned for his attention, something she knew she was supposed to have nipped in the bud from the first day he came into her office.

Now she has lost Dele, the only man she ever truly felt something for. Knowing the kind person he was, she knew it would actually take the grace of God for him to forgive, and take her back.


“Jeffery thank you so much for meeting with me, I really know I have been disturbing you with my issues lately” Vivian said to Jeffery as he came to meet her at the restaurant.

“It’s fine, what was it you wanted to talk to me about?”

“My husband’s opponent are still threatening to go public with the news of my abandoning my baby years ago. And that might ruin my husband’s chances of winning the elections”

“Okay? So how do I come in, in any of these?”

“I would like you to please talk to Jane for me”

“About what exactly?”

“My husband’s campaign strategist said, the only way to gain the people to be on our side, is to beat our opponent to their game, and go public first with the news of Jane being my daughter, I would need her consent to be able to that”

“So you want me to talk to Jane for you, so you can go public with the news of being her birth mother?” Jeffery asked in disbelief.

“Yes, please Jeffery I know this might sound stupid, but it’s the only option I have left, I need you to help me please”

“You are right, it does sound stupid, how can you even think of asking me to talk to Jane into agreeing for you, to go public about being her mother, when she hasn’t even come to terms with the fact that you are actually her mother?”

“Jeffery this is the only option I have, if these guys get to the media before us, my husband’s chances of winning becomes next to none, and if he losses this election because of me, he might never forgive me, he has already threatened to divorce me as it is. Jeffery I need you to help me save my marriage please”

“Have you even stopped to consider how Jane feels in any of these, have you stopped to consider how all these is going to affect her? You of all people should know what she has been through in the hands of the media, and now you want to drag her back into it?”

“Even if we don’t go public with the news, our opponents are going to do it anyway, so what difference does it make?”

Vivian really looked so desperate, Jeffery felt pity for her, she is so consumed with the idea of winning, and pleasing her husband, that she doesn’t seem to notice what she is doing to herself, and those around her.

“I’m sorry Vivian, but I won’t be doing any of that, the only thing I would be doing is protecting my wife, from the media, and desperate people like yourself”

Jeffery stood up to leave, but paused. “You know you should be thinking, of how to get closer to your daughter, and catching up on the years you lost with her as her mother, instead of sitting here and plotting unthinkable plans. Did you even come back because you really wanted her back, or because of your political ambitions?”

“Jeffery I need you to understand me please”

“I’m sorry, but there is nothing to understand here, good day Vivian”


After hours of sitting in the same position for long, Jane’s back began to hurt, Amaka was already fast asleep with her head on Jane’s laps. She didn’t want to wake her up, but she also needed to use the restroom, and also stretch her back.

So she grabbed a pillow from the bed, placed it under Amaka’s head, and gently stood up to use the restroom.

She was still in the restroom, when she heard her phone ringing, it must have woken Amaka up too, because she heard her calling her to come answer her phone.

Jane didn’t need to check the caller ID to know it was her husband, she assigned a special ringtone to him, so she knows whenever he is the one calling her.

“Babe how are you?”

“I’m okay, how was your meeting with Vivian?”

“It went well, I got your text message, is everything all right with Amaka?”

“Yes, she is fine” Jane turned to look at Amaka who looked pitiful lying on the floor.

“Okay, are you coming back soon?”

“I’m still going to spend some time with her, Aren’t you going out with the boys anymore?”

“No I’m not, Dele was supposed to host us, but he called to cancel this morning”

“Oh okay, I will be back soon then”

“I love you”

“I love you too”

“Are you going to tell your husband what happened between I and Dele?” Amaka asked calmly.

“Whatever happened between you two, is between you two” Jane sat down on the bed.

“Are you sure you are going to be fine being alone? You know you could come with me if you want?”

“No, I will be fine, all I just want is for you to help me talk to Dele please”

“I will try my best, but I’m not promising you I can help change his mind”

“I know, but please just try, you never can tell he might listen. Dele holds you in high esteem, so I’m very sure he will listen to what you have to say”

Jane stayed with Amaka a little longer, before she decided to leave, and promised to talk to Dele on her way home.

Before stopping by at Dele’s place, she decided to call him, to know if he was home or not.

“Hello my beautiful sister in-law, to what do I owe this call?” Dele’s voice was cheerful, and if he was affected by what Amaka did to him, he did his best to hide it.

“How are you Dele?”

“I’m doing okay, what’s up with you?”

“I’m good, I’m actually close to your area, and I was wondering if you were home, I would like to drop by at your place if you don’t mind?”

“Yeah sure, I am home”

“Alright I will see you soon then”


An hour later, Jane was at Dele’s apartment.

“Do make yourself feel at home” Dele said to her as they walked into the sitting room.

“What can I offer you?”

“Water will be just fine”

“Still the ever conservative Jane, I will go get you water then” Dele smiled as he walked to the kitchen.

Jane has been here once with Jeffery, while they were planning for their wedding, and needed to pick up something from Dele, and that day, Jane had requested for only water, when Dele asked what he could get her.

Dele came back with a bottle of water, and a glass cup in a tray. He placed them on a side stool, next to her.

“Here is your water”

“Thank you”

“I must say, I’m a bit suspicious of this visit of yours. Because I already spoke with Jeffery this morning, and cancelled our regular hangout, so I’m surprised to see you here, I just hope it’s not what I’m thinking?”

Dele looked at Jane suspiciously as he sat down opposite her.

“Why do you think I am here Dele?”

“And I don’t know, you tell me. But if it’s because of your friend, then you might as well just forget it”

“Dele she is truly sorry for what she did, she has been nothing but miscerable since you broke up with her, please forgive her”

“It’s just been hours Jane, give it time, the Amaka I know would soon bounce back like nothing ever happened”

“Dele this is different, I have seen Amaka other times, when she was going through a break-up, and I can tell you that she has never been like this before”

“Every break-up is always different Jane, she will be fine”

“Dele please, I know you love her, so please I’m begging you to please forgive her”

“Did she tell you what she did?”

“Yes she did” Jane looked down in shame.

“And if I were to be your brother, would you be here asking me to take her back?”
