Just A Taste
His words reverberated in my ears. You know that moment when you don’t even know what to think for the first 2minutes? Ever happened?
My head was not spinning any signal. What was he saying?
“And when I mean Uncle, I mean evil uncle. That’s after my life and my right to this company”
Ladies, please reason with me here, put yourself in my shoes. How would you sound when someone tells you the man who you dated for four years, and even got married too. A man that showered love on you, that appeared so simple and true. The same man is what someone is crucifying and painting him bad.
“Daniel, you dont know what you are talking about. Wilson is not like that”
I avoided his eyes so he wouldnt notice I had a thing for Wilson.
“He is what? Nadia I am telling you he is evil and you are… Wait who is he to you? He brought you here?”
God knows I was trying to keep calm. What is his problem self.
I replied with a dry tone. Gesticulating at the time.
“Joyce is not picking up. How do I get back to the Academy?”
I switched topic.
“You’ve not told me how…”
He didn’t drop the word those guys that were after me reappeared.
“Sir, The manager wants her”
I quickly withdrew to his back and held his waist like one scared kid.
At first he looked back at me, Into my eyes to understand my language. He soothed my hands on his waist and turned to the security.
“She is with me”
He didn’t talk much, the look he shot at them made them apologize till they were out of sight.
“Nadia spill.. What does my uncle want with you?”
His appearance changed. I gently removed my hands from his waist and tried to pace but remembered I wasn’t familiar with the environment.
“Nadia, you’ve been seeing my uncle?”
I was backing him, so he didn’t see when I shut my eyes and breathe down to calm my nerves.
“Wait, you’ve been seeing him? Seriously? You are like that? What did he offer you.. Huh? Money?”
I turned and opened my mouth but then I closed it. My dear ladies, I know you understand what I was going thru. Where do I start from? How do I explain that I was married and divorced after a week because I couldn’t cook?. How do I explain that I didn’t know the man I even had sex with? The man I dated for 4years.
“Wilson, you won’t understand, let’s just get out of here”
Tears was welling up in my eyes already. I didn’t want him to notice. So I attempted to walk pass him. But he wouldn’t listen.
He caught my arm and held me back.
My head was bowed. My hair covered the tears streaming down my face.
DANIEL: Nadia was testing my patience, oh she was testing me. Maybe she has been planning with my uncle to kill me. So she has been seeing my uncle? I could tell with just a look that she had something for him.. Yet, she chose to swallow it up, now that I caught her in the act.
She attempted to walk past me but I was quick to hold her back.
“You wanna hear Daniel?”
She finally turned. A dot of the tears that brimmed her eyes splashed on my cheeks. My heart melted.
“You wanna hear huh? Good. Wilson kidnapped me. And that’s not all, we dated for 4years.. I got married to him and it ended within a week, because I could not cook.. There, you have it now”
My initial wrath melted. The guilt that overwhelmed me was enormous. I could not look at her.
How do I even tell her that my uncle has been married with kids for fifteen years. And that his children are all in Germany?
“It’s embarrassing right? To discover that you dont even know the man you gave everything too. And that up till now he still has the power to hurt you. Now you can’t even look at me.”
She bent her head in tears.
No that’s not it oh.. I was just feeling guilty.
“Nadia no I just..”
She didn’t let me land.
“Daniel, please let’s just get out of here, please”
NADIA: I just needed to be alone now. I felt so ashamed of myself. I got divorced because I couldn’t cook. The man I thought I knew, deceived me the whole time. You wouldn’t believe that I financed our wedding. You are surprised right? Yes because he claimed he was Jobless. Now i got to know that he is the manager of kayode’s kitchen..And I was helplessly in love. The flat we settled down I paid for it.
I clothed the bastard and boasted to my friends that he bought all my jewelries
How embarrassing. Now Daniel was even making matters worst.
It was becoming so uncomfortable when Joyce called to even add more tension.
“Nadia where are you? Hurry to the Academy! Brenda signed you up for an in-house competition. She has informed the board that you are reluctant to participate. Nadia if you don’t get down here to participate, it would be confirmed that you disobeyed your supervisor.. And Nadia, you would be expelled!”
