The Wrong Number: Episode 9
Next weekend came, and he didn’t show up. I cried uncontrollably till I was exhausted, I felt so worse because I got my hopes up, thinking he’ll come apologize and start things afresh.
So for him not eventually showing up shattered those hopes. And he did not even have the courtesy of calling to apologize for not coming.
Some weeks later, I had an interview to attend, so I took permission from the school principal.
On my way back from the interview, I ran into one of our friends, we graduated from the same school. We chatted for a while and he congratulated me on Tunde’s new job in an oil company.
I was shocked to the bone, but I quickly put myself together, I smiled and thanked him.
“I heard he now lives in banana Island, I’m happy for you guys. We are waiting for your wedding invitation o” he said gleefully.
“Thank you very much, sure we’ll invite you for the wedding once we fixed a date” I said with a fake smile.
The guy left and I was yet to recover from the shock. Tunde now works in an oil company and I knew nothing about it!
I took the BRT bus and went straight home. I know I’m useless for that day, even if I return to school, I know I won’t be able to concentrate.
I called one of the staff and told her I won’t be coming back to school that very day.
On Saturday, I went to Tunde’s old house to see his neighbor. I’m very sure he’ll know where he stays in Banana Island.
Luckily for me I met the guy at home. I told him what I found out about Tunde’s new job and house.
He told me he doesn’t know where he stays. I begged him in tears to tell me because I’m very sure Tunde can’t move out without telling him.
He was moved by my tears, I could see it in his eyes. He picked a pen and paper and wrote the address down and handed it over to me.
“Please he mustn’t know that I gave you the address”
“I promise I won’t tell him” I assured him.
“Pamilerin! He called out as I was about to leave”
“Yes” I answered
“I think you deserve better”
I did not understand what he meant by that statement. I thanked him and left.
I did not have enough money on me to take me to and fro to the place, so I stopped by a bank and use the ATM machine to withdraw some money.
I located the house and I still find it hard to believe that my boyfriend now leave in luxury.
I knocked at the gate and the gateman opened the door, after serious questionings he decided to call his Oga using the intercom.
He told me his Oga is not in. I couldn’t believe my ears, I begged him to let me in but he declined.
I brought out my phone from my hand bag, I called His line for like 10times, it rings severally but he refused to pick up. I then sent him a text.
“Please let me in, if not for anything, but for old time sake”
I stood in front of the gate, waiting for his reply.
