My mom said. “ Good make sure you do your thing. ” Ella and
I became so close, I went to see her family and they gave me
a warm welcome , her siblings were so friendly … Things were
getting more and more interesting .
We travelled to Calabar for the wedding . I had with me the
engagement ring and I was praying she would say yes , a part
of me was sure…
She decided we stay in different hotel rooms because she told me she was still a Virgin that she needed to keep till that special night, I felt so lucky…
After the church ceremony at the reception , I gave someone my phone to make sure he captured the moment. I then called Ella ’ s attention .
“ Ella .”
As I knelt down with the ring . She said. “ Oh my God …” I then
asked. “ Will you marry me ?” She covered her eyes and
screamed. “ Yes !! I will . ” To my surprise, people around were
clapping and that made me very uncomfortable. After the
event we headed back to our hotel rooms and I called my
mom telling her the good news .
My mom was really glad . That night, I went on Facebook to
post the proposal picture. I noticed I had several unread
mails so I took my time to read them. There was one mail
that took my attention the most.
The sender didn’ t have a profile picture so I went ahead to
read the mail.
It said. “ Please are you the Adeoluwa that served in Kogi
over a year ago? please call this number ********** Tope .”
I felt very disturbed and I called the number immediately .
Unfortunately the phone was switched off . I checked when
the message was sent and it was about 4 months ago .
I got back to Lagos and kept on trying the number with no
success. On Wednesday morning it rang. I waited to hear the
voice and it was Tope ’ s . I then said . “ Oh Jesus ,
Tope I just saw your mail are you okay?”
She began to sob . “ adeoluwa please come and help me . I
need your help now more than ever….”
I then said. “ I don ’ t get you Tope is everything alright ?”
She said . “ Nothing is alright , please come I need your help .”
I then said to her. “ I am at work now,
I won’ t be chanced to travel . ” She then said. “ How about
Saturday it’ s very important .” The line then went off.
Memories of Tope came back , I was confused and very
bothered about her situation. I kept on calling but the phone
was switched off . I then sent a text message to her. telling
her I would be coming on Saturday, but will leave on Sunday
morning because I had to prepare to travel to Port Harcourt
on Wednesday on an official assignment.
She responded the following day with the address and her
location. I had made arrangements with a driver to take me
there with my car and I told Ella I was going on a business
meeting at Abuja . I left very early in the morning and I got
there around 11 :30 am .
The location was a church far inside the town , it wasn ’ t easy
locating it. I saw Tope by the gate of the church , standing.
She looked pale and mucky, she had lost weight and she
looked very unpleasant and troubled. I came down from the
car and she ran towards me . She embraced me and said.
“ Oh adeoluwa ….” As she wept deeply.
I held her back by her shoulders and said. “ Tope … Please
talk to me what is wrong ?” She then said. “ Come to the
church with me and you will know everything .”…
