[STORY] ALONE (Episode 17)

All Naija Entertainment



ALONE storyEpisode 17.

Dinner was ready before 6:30. Kenneth had stepped out of the house to only God knows where. Kamsi and I dressed up with a little make up and sat down in the sitting room, chatting away with our phones. A honk outside got us rushing out of the house as an ash coloured highlander drove into the compound. Ever seen these Nollywood movies where the servants would be standing in a queue, waiting for the prince or princess to arrive or get down from the car? Lol. That was the scene being played now. Only difference was that we weren’t servants and we looked too good to be one.

We watched as Rose got down from the car and we gushed shamelessly at her beauty. She was dressed in a short pink floral gown, wearing a gold plated heel which was about five inches. Her handbag marched her heels and she looked like a celebrity going for a photoshoot.
Rose and Kenneth had met on badoo the year Rose had written waec. Ken was in law school then. So many calls, chats, video and audio calls kept them going for a while but just like many other online dating, distance didn’t help them grow so they broke up in a couple of months. Now, they were back together and I prayed silently that they work out now.
We took turns to hug Rose and she was all smiles.
Kamsi: Welcome to our house girlfriend.
Rose: Thank you. Your house is so beautiful.
Kamsi and I thanked her before we moved into the house.
We three sat down and started discussing about school and matters that concerns girls before mum came downstairs.
Perfect wife material…..She stood up immediately and waited for mum to get to her.
Rose: Good evening mum.
OMG! Mum already?
Mrs k: Good evening my dear. Sit down
Rose sat down and mum took a seat beside her. They began to talk, with mother trying to know everything about Roses’ background in one night. We excused ourselves and went to make the table, silently gossiping about mum’s likeness for good girls.

Rose was from a family of four; her mother, her father, her elder brother and herself. They lived in old GRA. Her father is a retired soldier while her mum is a lecturer at IMT (institute of management and technology, Enugu). Her elder brother owns a construction company in portHarcourt and he’s still single.
Just before we came to call them to the table, Kenneth and Gospel came in. We all went to the dinning and Kamsi served us with the favourite meal of the house; breadfruit which was well garnished with smoked fishes and meats. We ate quietly (who dares to talk in the dinning while mum was around?). Gospel kept on stealing glances at me and I also fought with myself not to pour my food on him. While everyone had dessert, I excused myself and went to the sitting room with my own plate.


I know he is surprised that I’m over what he had said to me. I’m also surprised myself. But those words he spoke, everyone of them is locked somewhere deep down my heart. Like mummy had said, I had sealed the part of my mind where he existed. I would focus more on my education and once I get to the level I want to be, I’ll open up myself and unleash the same quantity of sorrow to him.
30 minutes later, we were all sitting together in the sitting room, chartering amongst ourselves.
Mrs k: Rose darling
Rose: Yes mum
Mrs k: I beg to take my leave now. I’ll be having a hectic day tomorrow.
Rose: No problem mum. It was nice meeting you and dinner was awesome.
They exchanged hugs and we watched mum go upstairs.
Ken: So, I also beg to leave with my girlfriend now.
I giggled audibly but Kamsi won’t take any of it.
Kamsi: See this man. As if she’s not our friend, we’ll just take her from you now now.
Rose: Of course. Ken, these girls have more rights to me you know?
Me: Exactly. So do the right thing Ken.
He shrugged his shoulders and opened his palm like he doesn’t have a choice.
Ken: Okay. Please girls, can I have some time with my girlfriend?
Kamsi: That’s more like it.
Ken helped Rose up and they walked upstairs. I got busy with my phone and didn’t notice when Kamsi left and which direction she went but I looked up to show her a picture but I only met Gospel, sitting just where he had being.
I stood up and made for the stairs;
Gospel: Can we talk for some minutes please?
I turned around and he was standing up.
Me: Did you talk to me now?
Surprisingly, my voice was calm
He came close to me and held my hands. It reminded me of the days we spent, visiting all the malls in Enugu, all the eateries, showing off our love to the world. I shook those thoughts out of my mind as tears were already forming at the back of my throat.
Gospel: Baby you know I love you and I’ll always love you. Its just that circumstances beyond my control seems to be against us. I….
Me: Uhm…. Its alright. Just forget it.
Gospel: Not until you forgive me. I know I chose the wrong words. I didn’t just know how to explain things to you so you’ll understand me.

Me: Understand that you have needs as a man and you refused to share with me? You said you love me, what happened? Aren’t you the right person to help me get out of whatever fear it is I dwell in? Did you ever try to? No you did not. Instead, you started avoiding me and bringing in girls who I’m way better than…. Gospel its not fair.
Gospel: Baby you know I’m not good with words. You know I…..
Me: I know that. And I also know your likes of ladies, your best sex positions. I also know you screw girls without protection. Gospel I hate you. Get this thing clear, for every tear I shed for you,you’ll get back in tenfold.
He held me close this time, tears falling from his eyes and I looked away, fighting with my own tears. I am strong,of course I am.
Gospel: Baby please I’m sorry. Forgive me.
Me: Let me go now. Just let me go.
Gospel: You know I can’t let you go. You know that. I love you so much and will do anything to make you happy.
Me: Fine. Make me happy by leaving me alone. Leave my life alone. Just let me be.
His hands left me immediately and I turned back and ran up the stairs counting the third person I loved so much who had left me all alone……Daddy, Emeka and Gospel….
They were all gone….gone for good.
