THE UNEXPECTED LOVE
(Tochi in school)
Her name is Tochukwu Desmond. She has a meek heart that makes her cry and forgives easily. She hardly think of any person to be evil or dangerous because she is pure in heart. How would she had known that she was about to be killed by a friend whom she forgave and trusted only because she’s a good and kind hearted girl? With joy, she entered in the resident of Mr Luster with her friend, Linda whose mind never departed from the horrible dream she had. They saw other students and people who also came for the party when they finally entered into the sittingroom sparkling with beauty. Vivian came around and hugged them looking classic and beautiful too.
“Thank God you finally came” she said smiling at Tochi while Linda stared at her smiling unwillingly.
“What are friends for? Tochi replied.
“Do you want to talk to Wisdom? I can call him for you”
“No, i have done that already. You can’t believe how happy he was to know that i passed my exams”
“Yes, that’s how it should be” they smiled and stared at each other. Suddenly, Mrs Luster came out well dressed with a car key in her hand. Vivian introduced her to her friends then she went out immediately to Women’s Meeting. One could see a disc joker (DJ) at a corner getting ready with the music and drinks on the table. Linda sat closely with Tochi glancing at her wrist watch and the door occasionally, anticipating to see Kingsley.
“Don’t worry, he will come” Tochi her.
“I’m missing him already” she replied.
“I said don’t worry, Kingsley can’t disappoint us. Why don’t you try calling him?”
“He’s number isn’t going through”
Few minutes later, the party began by Tochi standing close to Vivian before all the people. Linda’s mind wasn’t there, she kept staring at the door hopping to see Kingsley walked through it. Meanwhile, Vivian had poured a wine into a special glass cup where she added the poison and handed it to Tochi who smiled at her when collecting it. Everybody in the building also had their wine in their hands with exact glass cup and quantity of wine. Even Linda and Vivian.
“First i want to thank God for a successful result” Vivian began. “I’m so happy that i and my friend Tochi made it at last. Sorry, one of us, Kingsley Santo is not yet here but i believe he is on his way coming”
Hearing that, Linda glanced at the door again.
Vivian continued, “I’m using this medium to say sorry to any person i have offended especially my friends, Tochi and Linda even Kingsley. I also thank you all for coming. May God bless you all” she concluded and people clapped.
“I also give thanks to God for making me who i am today” Tochi began. “It all started like nothing but has ended like someone. I give credit to all my friends and teacher’s especially Mr Anuma for his big big grammars”
Hearing that people began to giggle.
Tochi continued, “I also thank my boyfriend, Wisdom who is schooling abroad. I will never forget Linda who had always encouraged and stood by me in times of difficulties and sorrows. All contributed for who i am today. So i say God bless them and bless you all in Jesus name”
“Amen!!” people responded and began to clap.
“So, lets toast for success and the party to begin” Vivian said raising up her glass of wine likewise other people in the building. “For success!”
“For success!” all shouted and began to drink their wine then the DJ scratched a hot music…
In London, having the feelings that something bad was about to happen to Tochi, Wisdom’s books fell from his hands immediately he stood up to go home after lectures. He tried to pick them up severally but they kept falling from his hands. For the last time he gently picked them up but stumbled at the door.
“Oh, my God!” a lady shouted and help him up.
“Thank you” Wisdom said.
“Are you okay?”
The lady began to help him park his fallen books with smiles on her face. She was a complete black American.
Wisdom didn’t have an idea what was happening to him so he became sad as he went home.
Mrs Desmond, having the same feelings, a cup of water fell from her hand and poured all over her wrapper when she wanted to drink it. “Chim oh!” she shouted. “What is the meaning of this?!” she added angrily and went inside to change up.
Still with the same feeling, Mr Anuma started his car occasionally but refused to kick off. Then he came out with his hands on his waist staring at it. He was wearing a voluminous trouser and shirt which he tucked-in looking like a professor.
“I just came back with this car few hours ago. Why does it want to give me a hard time with all the sophisticated parts i changed in it yesterday?” he murmured in silence then entered to start the car again but all to no avail.
Back in the resident of Mr Luster, girls and boys drank and shook their waist to the Timaya music blasting out of the speaker. Yet Tochi had not taken her drink.
“You are not drinking. Drink your wine” Vivian told her.
“Okay” she replied..
