It was a time of hard work for Lora, she would spend the whole night reading for her exams , she only hanged out with Okechukwu during the weekends , the final results were out , most people in the faculty believed Lora was a first candidate, she wouldn’t believe it , she knew how she had spent the most of her six years in University of Ibadan, she had not put in the work .
Lora had gone to school, to process her clearance , her phone rang .
“Lora where are you at the moment?
Prof Hedong asked on the phone. He had kept close touch with Lora , during her preparation for the exam . He personally coached Lora on how to go about her project work . And he gave her great remarks during her project defence .
“Good morning sir , I’m at the bursar’s office, for my clearance .”
She said .
” Come straightaway to my office , I’ve something to show you.”
Lora sauntered through the crowd of students strolling to and fro their department buildings .
Lora knocked at the door of the professor’s office .
” Come in . Is that you Lora ? The door is open.”
Lora opened the door , the winches on the the door made a crackling sound.
” Good afternoon Prof.”
Lora managed to say , fighting her pounding heart , that was threatening to leap out of her ribcage.
” Lora your potentials are infinitum, I’m so proud of you, Adisa! Please come to my here!”
He called out to his secretary whose office was outside his
“Please go to the school mall , get us a bottle of pure heaven wine , stop at Grandma’s and get me pizza , Lora what are you going to eat , Shawarma or Pizza? Adisa buy something for yourself.”
He said handing his ATM card to his secretary. Lora was lost , she didn’t understand what the celebration was for , Prof Hedong could see the confusion on Lora’s face .
“I know you must be confused, Lora my dear , you made my three decades dreams come through.”
Lora kept looking at him puzzled.
“Lora your Final result is out and you got a GPA of 6.5 first class with distinction, I can die in peace now .”
Prof Hedong was happier than Lora who bagged the result .
“I talked to my friend in London, he got you a house manship in Kings hospital London and a year master’s degree scholarship with Cambridge with all expense paid . You’re an asset to the nation .”
Adisa brought the wine and Pizza all the lecturers in medicine and surgery department celebrated Lora.
“Hey OK guess what I just heard !”
Lora said as she beamed on the phone.
” Baby you know I’m not good at this guessing thing, please tell me what it is ?”
Lora wouldn’t take a no.
She beamed with delight.
“Okay since you want me to guess . You finally hit a break in your online business?”
Lora said “no”
He made more attempts and failed . Then Lora decided to bail the cat .
“I got first class with distinction! The Prof hosted me in his office ! I broke thirty years Jinx of no first class in Med and surgery.”
Ok was delighted that his woman was such an intelligent woman , he knew she could make it , her soundness , was what captivated him .
“Babe prepare am coming to your place now! I am taking you out!”
Barely thirty minutes Okechukwu drove to Lora’s house, where he had picked her , Lara and Bidemi.
Lara was done with her youth service , she preferred Ibadan to Abuja , It was boring to her living in Abuja with only her mother .
” Guys we’re going to go ShopRite first then we’d visit Grandma’s at Lagos road , before I unveil my last present , for my beautiful, intelligent and charismatic and astute fiancee.”
The three ladies chirped all thr way to the mall where they got expensive bottles of red wine and then drove to Grandma’s.
” Guys we’re here to celebrate this beautiful woman, who is connected to us all in one way or another , she’s lovely , she’s caring and intelligence, Let’s have a toast.”
They clinked their glasses
They said in unison before they started eating together while eating .
“Guess for the last surprise, let’s drive to Lagos highway .”
Okechukwu drove them to Elizad motors and asked Lora to pick any car of her choice. Lora was shocked, she never expected such extravaganza.
“Toyota Corolla is too cheap, why not go for the mini Cooper?”
He suggested .When Okechukwu realized Lora wouldn’t pick , he selected a Mercedes-Benz salon car worth sixteen million for her, Lara’s countenance changed, she became sad and angry . Okechukwu transfered the money to the car dealer. A driver From the company drove the car to Lora’s house and packed it there , while Lora enrolled in a driving school, she was learning very fast , she had started driving perfectly, barely three weeks, she had driven herself to meet with Okechukwu at Grandma’s fast food.
“Please madam and sirs what do you need ?”
The waiter had asked , Lora pointed some meals on the menu .
“Lora I think we should go and see my mum again , you know we’ve not been back to see her since we got engaged . And then we need to see your dad , and mum , we’re in Africa no matter what your father had done to you and your mum in the past, we still need his blessings to be married .”
“You see his name is still on your certicate ”
It wasn’t funny to Lora, she would avoid anything to do with her father .
“I’ll give you his number , I don’t want anything to do with him , since he doesn’t want anything to do with me.”
Okechukwu collected his number from her and placed a call to him .
“Good afternoon Mr Desmond.”
Mr Desmond was sitting at his office at Lekki around eight PM going through records of the month’s business, on his Apple desktop computer, when his phone began to ring , he would shut it down , the number would call over an over again . He had buried himself in his Job, since the sudden death of his family .
“Hello who could this be ?”
He said .
“Good day sir my name is Okechukwu Nwazumba calling from Ibadan , I am the fiance to your daughter Lora , I’m planning for us to get married in the next three months, even though she would be proceeding to London for a scholarship To do her master’s and her house manship .”
Mr Desmond was pleasantly surprised, that his daughter was a medical doctor. Tears rolled down his eyes .
“You said she had a scholarship?”
Okechukwu affirmed .
“Is she there can I talk to her ?”
Lora shook her head to say no
“Well sir not at the moment, she’s indisposed, when can I come to see you ?”
Mr Desmond was overjoyed, he had tried to reach out to Lara after the death of Tiniola and the twins , Lara had blatantly shut him out .
“You think I’m a trash you can dump and pick whenever you want ? Please if you don’t want me to be rube and derogatory, delete my number, count me dead , you can talk to your soft heart daughter not me.”
Lara had hung up on him and immediately called her mum
“Mum how did your dead beat baby daddy get my number? Please you should call him and tell him never reach out to me ! He can dump me for twenty six years amd just appear out of the blues ? We shall have nothing to do together, until the day we die ! I can’t wait to get married and officially discard his name !”
Mrs Susan tried to talk her out , but she wouldn’t listen , her mind was made up for good or worse
Lora , her twin sister , Bidemi and Okechukwu had gun to Bridals to pick clothes for the traditional and white wedding.
“Baby try this sequin gown on! No this would be better !”
Okechukwu suggested that Lora pick a short blue dress
” Baby it’s too short, cant wear this to go see your mother, it’s too skimpy” Lora protested .
“Mmmmmmm what about this ?”
Okechukwu pointed the trior of Lora , Bidemi and Okechukwu went to to a red gown.
“I like this it suits your chocolate skin.”
They all agreed with the choice Lora made . Okechukwu made them pick four dresses each ,which made Lora’s dresses total of five, he paid the sales girls with POS, he transferred four hundred and fifty thousand naira for the dresses picked, Lara picked the most expensive of the dresses . Okechukwu had gown with his father’s brother,uncle Obiafor to go for introduction at Mrs Susan’s uouse in They had to go his mother to Make final plans for their traditional marriage which was to hold a week after at Ekpoma Edo state, at the village of her Dad , Mr Desmond Osiagale. Bidemi then proceeded to Ogun to see her parents , she was to join Lora and her family in Ekpoma. she had moved in with Lora, after school, he was doing her internship in university teaching hospital Ibadan .
Okechukwu’s only sister Chiwendu had returned from London to attend the traditional and white wedding.
Okechukwu and Lora Had gone to s visit his mother’s house near government house , for the appointed meeting , when to his rude surprise, they ran into his cousin Chiamela. Okechukwu despised her.
” Hey Okechukwu how far bros? So you are finally getting married? Hmmm bros I jealous you oh.”
Okechukwu stared at her surprised to see her .
“Chiamela what are you doing here ? Who invited you here ?”
Okechukwu didn’t like Her behavior, because she trouble goes wherever she goes .
“Bros smile na and pretend ,YoU miss me and you’re happy to see me here! I know even if I’m in Ibadan you won’t invite me to the first marriage of an Nwazumba grandchild. Chiwendu invited me here.”
Okechukwu called Chiwendu aside .
” Why would you invite Chiamela here ? Is it not my introduction? I knew why I didn’t invite her! Why did you invite her Chiwendu!”
Chiwendu was confused as to why her brother would be pissed at her for inviting their first cousin to his introduction to his family
” I’m going to hold you responsible if she causes any trouble here!”
“Chiamela I swear to God I’ll skin you alive if you cause any drama here today!”
Okechukwu threatened before going back to join Lora and his mum at the sitting room.
Chiwendu returned to meet her Mother And Lora. Their sitting room was so massive, like a football stadium, a gigantic television set that was like the screens at cinema buildings, was facing the massive parlour.
” Our bride to be is here!
Chiwendu screamed as she embraced Lora.
“Our doctor please come and sit down here .”
Mrs Nwazumba said .
“Good day ma! ”
Lora went to sit down with oke’s mum . Chiamela was returning from the kitchen with a plate of food .
“Hey Lora! What are you doing here !oh are you the bride to be ?”
Lora’s face became white as that of a ghost . She laughed so hard till the food fell of her hand
“Chiamela! Behave yourself what’s the madness about?”
Chiamela was laughing, the maids ran with sweeper and packer to pack up the mess
“Stop laughing where do you know Lora from.”
Chiamela couldn’t hold the secret anymore .
“Mumsy this lady here Lora! Is a full blown pros…”
Okechukwu cut In
“Chiamela! Leave this place now !”
Okechukwu screamed .
“Chiamela pros… what ? Mrs Nwazumba screamed.
“She’s a runs girl! I know Lora , well we used to have run ins , in the club, she was doing well packaged ashawo.”
Lora held her head and tears began to fall.
” Lora tell me that’s a lie!”
Mrs Nwazumba said.
“Lora can’t you answer me ?”
Mrs Nwazumba gathered her phones , her iPad and went upstairs.
“Lora stop crying I’ll convince her. Our love cannot be broken, I’ll convince her . That life, you left in your past.
Lora was crying, Okechukwu ran upstairs to the master’s bedroom to meet his mum . .
” Mum what was that ? How about past is in the past? Lora has lived a life of rejection , no mother to standup for her , no father ,mum she had to survive, she saw herself through school, mum when this lady came to my life I felt whole, mum if you care about my happiness you have to allow Me marry her!”
Mrs Nwazumba was furious at her only son
” So you knew your fiancee was from the night life ? And you snaked her into my life! You have no regards for me! But I must inform you that you won’t marry that gutter! An akunakuna! Over my dead body ! I’ll die before that happens!”
Okechukwu was raging with anger .
” Mum this is same Lora you cherished and adored when you first saw her?! Lora you boasted about when she got first-class?”
She was unmoved .
” Please spare me those drama! Maxwell Okechukwu Nwazumba, you’re not going to marry that girl that’s the end of it!”
Okechukwu stormed out of the room, he banged the door behind and stormed into the sitting room.
“Chiamela! What are you still doing here ! Pack your luggages and get the hell out of here! I don’t wanna see you near this house, you treacherous whor# , you’re the filthiest person I know , but you have the guts to rat your fellow woman ! Get the hell out.”
He dragged her by the hand and dumped her outside the house .
Lora was still sitting on the sofa on the sitting room sobbing. Okechukwu came and put his hands on her and led her into the passenger seat on her car and drove her to her house. He sat with her crying on his chest , his arms we’re folded round about her .
” Lora I’ll talk to my aunt in Madrid and mum’s brother in Lagos, they’ll prevail on her, she would oblige. She listens to her siblings.”
Lora’s face was swollen from crying for two weeks she kept hoping and waiting for Okechukwu. It was week to their traditional marriage that Okechukwu invited her to Paradise hotel , he was waiting at the restaurant before she came.
In a week Lora had lost half her size , she was looking frail as if she had aids . Her eye sockets were sunken deep, Okechukwu was almost crying.
” How far with the scholarship Lora hope you are still processing it ?”
Lora was tossing and turning her food.
” Cut the chase Maxwell Okechukwu Nwazumba, why have you not called or chatted me up for two weeks?”
Okechukwu hide his guess, he was ashamed to look her in the face.
” Lora I tried! I fought to have you in my life , my family is a reputable one, my mum fears the dust that would rise if the media gets wind of your past . I talked to my uncle’s and aunts , they were all in support of mum, in Africa you know we don’t only marry the spouse, we married the family , this a cheque of thirty million, you can travel to London do your internship there and stay there, we can still be friends but marriage between us won’t work, I’m sorry.”
Lora had felt this time would come, so she dropped her spoon, she picked up the cheque of thirty million.
” You’re so shallow, so you gave up what we had for naira and Kobo? What did she threatened you with? That she would cut you off your inheritance? Take your cheque I don’t need it.”
Okechukwu refused to take it from her. So Lora tore it into shreds and dumped it in the waste bin.
Okechukwu ran after her , she turned back to know why he was calling after her.
” Lora you forgot your car keys.”
Lora managed a superficial smile.
” Maxwell I didn’t forget it, I believe it’s yours I’m returning it .”
He stood with the key in his hand, an Uber came and picked Lora, he could see her crying bitterly in the backseat,until the car disappeared.
Lora stopped at a pharmacy were she got some prescription drugs, after introducing herself as a doctor , she got home wrote a text to Bidemi.
” My Dear friend Bidemi , you’ve been the only one who has been standing by me since secondary school, I feel I owe you an apology for what am about to do, God first forsake me, before I forsook Him, now after so much love and promise, Maxwell broke our engagement, I’m tired of fighting, I’m giving up , I need to rest my head. Please forgive me and remember I love you.”
Lora Emptied a sachet of the nerve relieving drugs into her palm hand and gulped everything down with water, and immediately she began to fall into deep sleep, tears dripped down her cheeks, she smiled and closed her eyes , the whole room became silently dark .
