Emeka was driving past the biological sciences garden; he was thinking of Betty, he tried calling her few minutes before now but she didn't pick his calls, perhaps she was busy reading her books.
He ran his free hand through his hair and glanced at the garden,- he gasped. He quickly stopped the car, his heart was racing.

He saw Betty with Jay-Jay; they were sitting on a cane chair, Jay-Jay was leaning towards her, while she was smiling happily.
Emeka bounced out of his car and sauntered towards them.
Betty turned unexpectedly,their eyes met. He expected her to freeze or jump up, but she remained calm; her smile was wider now.

"hy Bestie.." she said with a grin

"hy" He didn't smile

"Bestie please meet Jay-Jay...Jay-Jay meet Emeka" she said gently.

"Hi, nice to meet you" Emeka was stretching forth his hand for a hand shake

"Its my pleasure" Jay-Jay smiled, he didn't take the hand shake

"errm..I was driving by..then... errrm... I just wanted to say hi" Emeka said gently pocketing his hands

"Wow...thats so sweet of you, you're such a darling" Betty laughed

is she high or something? "Bye" Emeka turned to leave.

"Ciao" Jay-Jay chuckled
Emeka gave him a cold look before walking away.

"and what was that?" Betty queried

"uhm?" Jay-Jay smiled

"You refused to shake him, and.."her voice trailed off

"are you angry?" he chuckled moving towards her

"yes I am" her voice was rising.

"That's not how to be angry..." he kissed her lips" this is how to be angry" he added moving away.

She gasped. She turned gently and walked away.

*********
Betty was mute. She kept toying with her glass of juice.
"Hey! Are you okay?" Jay-Jay was sitting right there- facing her. She almost forgot she called him to meet her here.

"Helloooo, Nnem, talk to me" he called out again.

"Jay...I don't like what you're doing." she started

"Emeka has refused to pick my calls because of your attitude yesterday" she stopped to lower voice
"you even kissed me...imagine, Jay that was too..." she stopped again.

"So what are you trying tell me?"Jay-Jay said quitely

"You taking advantage of me!" she snapped.

His eyes narrowed; she wished she never said that.
"You see Jay..." she stopped not knowing what to say. She searched his eyes.

"Are saying I'm responsible for whatever is going on now between you and Emeka?" His voice was low. She made to speak but he stopped her.

"I've never had any silly intention towards you, I regarded you as a sister and nothing else. I'm sorry for the kiss, that was not a kiss but a peck!" he stood up

"You know what? I think you're the one taking advantage of me!" he walked away.

"Jay-Jay" she called but he didn't look back.

She sighed. Placed her knotted fist below her chin. She was in trouble.

"Hi"

she looked up,it was Emeka.

"I'm sorry for what happened yesterday" she muttered

"its okay, so was that your boyfriend?" He didn't seem angry

"He is a friend like a brother" Betty replied.

Emeka sighed, he waved at the waitress, gave her orders.
" so what are you doing here all alone with your table filled with eatables? Emeka smiled.
She managed a low laugh, ThankGod Emeka is no longer angry, she need to see Jay-Jay...where is she gonna find him?

Emeka was staring at her, she looked away and sighed again.

************
"Where the hell are you going?" Edith queried.
Betty didn't reply, she quickly combed her hair,held it into bun with her ribbon; she rushed to pick her shoes

"I asked you a question" Edith squeaked

Betty rolled her eyes, she wasn't ready for Edith's interrogation.

"This girl! Have suddenly gone deaf or dumb?" Edith squeaked again.

"You told me the other day to face my problems alone" Betty retorted.

"You're not going anywhere,till you tell me where you're going"Edith eyed her

"see, I offended Jay-Jay, I need to go and apologise" Betty replied shortly

"Ehn?" Edith yelled, Betty grimaced

"You wan die abi?"

"No..I'm going to Jay-Jay's house" Betty said applying her lip balm.

"have you been there before?" Edith squeaked.

"no, i've got his address" Betty picked her phone and purse.

"Don't go o" Edith was screaming now.

"If you don't see me after two days, call my mum and tell her I'm dead" she was close to tears now.

"Betty, please don't go" Edith pleaded.
Betty opened the door, turned to glance at Edith; then at the wall clock-it was past five already, she left hurriedly.

***********

"Sister number wetin?" the cab driver asked

"number...errm...34" Betty replied glancing at the paper in her hand as if to be sure.
She was already in Odutola street, just a few blocks from Jay-Jay's house. The street was scanty, if anything happened to her here, there'd be nobody to help.

"We don reach" the cab driver announced.
She got down, gave him some naira notes; muttered a thankyou and moved toward the gate.

She knocked and knocked no answer; she got tired and decided to leave.

"Hey! Na you knock this gate" someone roared behind her. Her stomach churned, she turned swiftly.

The guy had a muderous look on his face.

"yes...errm..I'm looking for...errrm..Jay-Jay lives here?" she stuttered

"Jay-Jay?" the guy asked as if to be sure.

"Yes, good afternoon" she could not help flexing her knees.

"why you dey find am?"

"I'm his friend...sister...I need to see him" she replied.

The guy scrutinized her with his eyes.
"You no fit see am nw, him dey busy" he said with a note of finality.

She felt weak, tears welled up in her eyes. She turned slowly to leave.

" Tiger you and who dey talk?"

She gasped, she turned sharply, she saw Jay-Jay.

"na one sister like that" the guy replied.

Their eyes met- she and Jay-Jay, he looked away; she melted- she must have hurt him much. He mumbled something and walked in.

"him say make you enter" Tiger told her opening the gate wide for her. He led her to the mainly building but stopped by the door leading inside. She opened the door gently and went inside.

She closed the behind her, and looked at him, he was standing, his hands behind him, his face was neutral.

"What do you want?"

"Good evening Jay-Jay.." she started

"What do you want?" His voice was firm.

She sighed, what was she going to tell him.
"I'm sorry Jay-Jay..."

"so?" he cut her sharply.

"I'm truly sorry, I didn't mean to hurt you" she pleaded. She moved towards him but he backed away.

"what makes you think I'm hurt?" He asked

"I'm sorry, please" her voice was shaky.

"So?" he asked again

"please forgive me" the tears rolled down her cheeks, she went on her knees.

He looked away, he hate to see her cry.
"Stand up" He whispered.

"Not until I'm forgiven" she said amidst tears.

"It's alright" he said pulling her up, he had forgiven her since, if he hadn't forgiven her he wouldn't let her in.

"Ebezina- don't cry" He said wiping her tears.

She searched his eyes. "Thank you"

"anything for you sister" he said patting her head.

"Sit down" he gestured to a sofa
"what do i offer you?" he asked smiling.

She felt homely now.

"We have water and...you don't take alcohol?" he said amidst smiles

"I don't"

" well, little sis, water is the only thing for now" He moved towards his fridge.
He offered her a glass which she drank, he stared at her for some seconds.

"you suprise me!" he stated, she looked at him questioningly

"you know, you came straight to my house without any fear that i might kill or hurt you, I gave you water- you drank without fear that I might drug you...you seem trust me so much" He said shaking his head

"every sister trusts her brother, and no brother would drug his sister" she said smiling.

"yea, you gat me at that"he chuckled.

"your favourite channel?" he picked up the Tv remote.

"Fashion TV" she replied relaxing into the sofa

"I knew it" he chuckled
Re: Love-life On Campus by BukkyDan(f): 8:40pm On Jan 09, 2013
*********
Betty sipped some water and swirled it in her mouth before swallowing it., that was her fifth glass, she was lying down on the soft rug watching Tv with Jay-Jay who was sipping some wine.
Her eyes drifted to the wall clock. She suddenly became time conscious.

"Jeez!..." she quickly got up

"did anything bite you?" Jay-jay asked sipping more wine

"yes...no..time" she pointed at the clock

"what's with time?" he didn't look up.

"Its past 8pm already, and the gate to the hostel closes by 7:30." she said pitying herself

"you can pass the night here if you wish.."he started
she stared at him- in her wildest dreams.

"If you think you can spend the night in the harem of cultists, then you are welcomed." He added smiling.

"No". She said almost in a whisper

"uhm?"

"I'm leaving now" she said picking her purse.

"okay." he picking up something that looked like a reciever"bring over the camry" he said into it.

"Lemme drop you off." he told her.

"I'm going to Emeka's place- I..i'll spend the night there" her voice was low.

"I'll drop you there," he chuckled.
He didn't seem to care. He led the way out, they got into the car and drove off.

The journey to Emeka's place took 30 minutes.
"here we are." Jay-Jay whispered, stoping the car right in front of Emeka's flat.

"Thank you" she smiled

"I'l call you tomorrow morning" he was smiling too.

She knocked gently on Emeka's door, she is really gonna suprise him.

"Hi.." she said as Emeka opened the door.

"wow.." was all Emeka could say before pulling her into a warm hug.
"Sit down, let me get you something to eat" he sounded excited.

She sat down; the thought of food made her happy.

"To what do I owe this visit?" he asked placing a plate of jollof rice before her.

Visit! "I was at Jay-Jay's place, I wasn't time conscious, it got late, so I decided to come and..you know..spend the night here" she explained slowly.

"Because Jay-Jay couldn't accomodate you for the night or what?" Emeka asked with a low laugh.

Betty felt insulted, she stood up gently, picking her purse and phone "I'm sorry for the trouble" she said moving towards the door.

"Hey, c'mon baby, that was not what I meant..." he said apologetically.

She wasn't listening, she left, he followed her, he looked left and right but no trace of her. He sighed heavily, he was in deep poo! He should'nt have said those words...He felt the world crashing at his feet.

************
Betty was standing by the road side, she was breathing heavily, she was trying her best not to cry.
Damn it! She cursed under her breathe, who does he think he was anyway! She felt her forehead, her head was aching badly. Damn the headache! damn Emeka! Damn the hunger she felt! Damn...
A car pulled up beside her, Jay-Jay got down, "Let's go home little sis" he whispered taking her hands gently, opened the door and she got in without a word.
He looked at her briefly before driving off.

He helped her out of the car, sat her down on a cushion in the living room "Stop crying" He said gently, she had been crying all the way. He opened a foil paper that contained suya

"Eat" he whispered but she shook her head

"please Nnem" he was pleading with her. She has never heard that softness in his voice before, she never knew he had the word 'please' in his dictionary.


She took a piece, it tasted foul, she made an attempt to throw up, but he held her down.

"steady there! Its not the suya, but your heart- its full of pains" he said gently, pouring some creamy substance into a mug. "here, drink up, it's milk"

she drank it all,and drank another serving halfway before keeping the mug down. He pulled her up and moved her towards his bedroom.

"you need to sleep" He whispered tucking her in bed. He put off the lights leaving only the bedside lamp.

"If you need anything, press the bell" he told her showing her a button by the bedside.

"goodnight, I'll share the spare room with Tiger" he explained before leaving the room.

Her eyelids were heavy, she closed them gently, this is where she belongs-home.

*************
She was awakened by the sound of a gun shot. She sat up abruptly pushing the bed covers away, she looked around; Yikes! It was morning. She pressed the bell button on impulse.

The door squeaked and opened with Tiger's head poking in.
"You need anything?" he asked

he doesn't have the courtesy to greet! Mtchew. "Where's Jay-Jay?" she ignored his question.

"him don comot, e say make I tell you say him dey come now now" tiger replied alittle bit politely.

"the gunshot?" her voice was low,

"Rox was loading his gun" he explained with an amused look

who ever Rox was! Mtchew! "Thanks"she watched him shut the door.


What the heck was Jay-Jay thinking leaving her here? What if Tiger beheaded her? She shuddered.

Getting up gently, she moved towards the bathroom. Slowly she washed her face trying to wave Tiger's murderous face off her mind. She looked up at the mirror, her eyes were swollen. Mtchew! Maybe...

"Betty?" Jay-Jay called her

she froze,

"Where's this girl?"

she quickly wiped her face and ran out.
"There you are! How was your night?" he asked dropping a polythene bag on the table .

"Good morning" she sat down

"uhm...your eyes are swollen, you cried alot yesterday.." he squatted beside her

"wanna talk about it?" he continued. She shook her head.

"okay" he sighed pulling the polythene bag towards him.
He brought out a flask, bread, butter and boiled eggs.
"breakfast" he told her standing up to get a mug.
Gently he served her while she ate.

"You have lectures today?" he asked, she nodded.

"Eat up let me take back to school." he sounded like a father, she wanted to laugh but kept a straight face.

Betty was walking as fast as her legs could carry her, Emeka too was running after her. Why was he following anyway, can't he just leave her alone? Mtchew!

"Please Betty..." emeka pleaded holding her arm.

"what's it?" she glared at him

"please I'm sorry, I swear I didn't mean to hurt you by those words" he sounded desperate.

"hmmn, I've heard, you didn't mean those words but you said them? I thought you were a friend" she started walking away

"But I love you" He screamed after her.

She stopped in her track, her heart racing fast, did he just say those words to her? A crowd of students began to gather.

"Please baby, I truly love you, I wouldn't hurt you" emeka was now on his knees.

"gosh! Please stand up" she was nervous

"forgive me" he pleaded

"I forgive you, please stand up, we're creating a scene" her voice was shaky.

He stood up gently "thanks you." he was searching her eyes

"I love you too" she said quitely, those tears were welling up again.

They hugged each other warmly and the crowd of student clapped and cheered.
"ehen! See love nwantiti!" a plump girl exclaimed before walking off, the crowd began to disperse.

"That was the most romantic display, I've ever seen" it was Chuks.

"ol'boy I feel you!" Chisom exclaimed

"HI" Betty was grinning widely

"Nwa oma, I never knew Romeo and Juliet were still alive" Chuks chuckled.

Oh yes! She felt fulfilled, at least.

"This calls for a celebration" Edith said from behind them.

Betty hugged her.

"yes"chuks and chisom chorused.

"I guess sahara sweets will do" Edith suggested and they all moved towards Emeka's car.

Betty's phone rang, it was a text message, she opened it...

"Hey little sis, I saw that episode, I never knew you were that romantic...that was lovely, right now ama pop champagne with my guys. I'll call ya later. Take kia and Enjoy!
Jay-Jay"

She smiled, Jay-Jay saw it too...G-gal can go hell and burn to ash, she doesn't care.

*************
Students were crowded round the notice board close to the faculty of sciences building, Betty and Edith were among them. Their end of semester result have just being place.
Betty got a second class upper, but a course was ticked absent, she gasped.

"how comes?" Edith asked

"don't know...but i wrote the exam" Betty sounded confused.

Edith thought for a while..
"Errm, come, let's go to see the lecturer." she suggested.

"what are you gonna do?"

" never mind, come with me." Edith said taking her hands.

The lecturer was a female. Mrs Okoro.
"Good afternoon ma" they both chorused

"How may I help you?" mrs Okoro asked without looking up.

"our statement of result says Betty Amah, was absent during your exams" Edith started.

"So?"

"she wasn't absent, she wrote the exams." Edith's voice was rising now.

" Who knows, maybe her paper got missing" Mrs okoro replied eyeing Betty.

"That paper isn't missing, we need to see her booklet" Edith snapped.
Betty gasped- Edith's gat the liver

"Listen girls, leave my office before I get provoked. Don't you have manners?" Mrs Okoro was visibly angry now.

"listen madam!" Edith was smiling
"It seems you don't know who Betty Amah is.." edith moved towards the table "have you heard of Jay-Jay before?" she continued.

Mrs Okoro glanced at Betty, then at Edith "Yes." she said quitely.

"Good, and hope you know what he can do when you tamper with his affairs? I guess you love your life" Edith wore a triumphant look.

Mrs Okoro looked frightened. Edith and Betty made to leave.

"Wait please" Mrs Okoro's voice was shaky.

"I have the scripts here" she said opening her locker.

"Oh.." Edith smiled mischievously.

"She had an 'A', I'm sorry" Mrs Okoro was visibly scared.

"So why did you hide it?" Edith asked

"I...I..was paid by Gloria; G-gal" edith laughed. Betty gasped.

"anyway, thats your headache, amend every thing soon, go to the exams senate, I want everything cleared by nextweek" Edith ordered.

"I promise" Mrs Okoro said slowly.

Betty and Edith left the office happily.

"What's up with this G-gal?" Betty queried,

"Don't mind her, we'l handle her, atleast, we can use Jay-Jay's name" Edith chuckled.

"hmmn"

"cmon cheer up girlie! Let's talk about something better errm...let's talk about Emeka!" Edith wanted to make her happy.

Betty laughed at the mention of Emeka's name, yea, it alwaays makes her happy

Betty was sitting down on a step beside the twin statue. She wasn't reading the books she seemed to be staring at, she was thinking of Emeka and Jay-Jay.
She tried to compare and contrast, she couldn't decide who was the best,
Anyway, she sighed, its a good thing I have a brother and a boyfriend; both in one campus.
Her phone rang sharply interrupting her thoughts

"Hello? "

"Hey, little sis, its me" Jay-Jay chuckled from the other end

"Jay-Jay?" she wanted to be sure

"yea, Nnem how are you?" he asked.

"I'm always good, I was just thinking of you" she replied

"oh no! Baby you should be thinking of Emeka." he was teasing her.

She laughed.

"I gat to tell ya something" he hesitated.
"I'm wouldn't be in town for about two weeks, I'm gonna travel today." he sounded serious.

"Travel? To where?"

"My dad wants me to come over urgently, details- till i'm back" he said slowly,

"No tell me now" she wanted to hear it all.

"No, you just take care, stay out of trouble okay, remember I have invisible eyes all over the campus," he chuckled.

"I'll miss you, brother" her voice was low

"I'll miss you more, now take care" his voice was low too

"Jay-Jay?" the line went dead.

She tried calling and the network operator told her the number was incorrect.

She sighed! She was damn going to miss him. He has invisible eyes? Wow! He is going to explain himself when he comes back

They were both sitting close to each other on a block- Betty and Emeka.
Emeka's finger's were playing round her cornrows, it was another lovey-dovey session. He whispered something to her and smacked his hands playfully.

"Ouch! That hurts!" Emeka said rubbing the spot.

"are that weak?" Betty sneered

"Oh yea! When it comes to issues like this, but I'm not weak at errm, you know.." he winked at her.

"Bad boy! You love dirty talks" she pulled his ears.

"that shows I'm learning fast"

They doubled with laughter..

"Hy Betty-love" someone called from behind them.

they turned startled.

A boy was walking towards them, he has a rugged look- with dreadlocks,tattoo's all over e.t.c

"I've been searching for your all-over.." the boy continued.

"Excuse me, do I know you?" Betty asked confused.

"C'mon what's the meaning of that, you don't recognise me anymore? It's me Kay- your baby" the boy replied, trying to take her hands.

"I don't know you!" Betty snapped, standing up.

Emeka stood up too "Who is he?"

"I don't know him, I've not seen this face before!" Betty replied looking more confused now.

"You heard she doesn't know you, can you leave now!" Emeka told the boy.

"Betty-love, is it cos I didn't come over last night or what?, okay,I'm sorry, you know I love you" the boy said trying to hug Betty, but she pushed him away.

"Leave me!" she shrieked

"Kay! Or whatever you are, leave this place now! I won't have you harrassing her right in front of me!" Emeka's voice was rising.

" see this one o, wetin consign you? How many tines have you tasted her punny?" the boy retorted.
"You'd better tell him to leave me o, else I would leak our secrets o" he told Betty

Emeka gaped at Betty who looked horrified.
"I don't know you, we don't have any secrets"

"Ehn, okay, where did she tell you she spent the night yesterday? Library right?" The boy asked Emeka.

Betty gasped, she truly was at the library throughout last night with Edith, they were solving some assignments.

"She was at my place:" the boy told Emeka.

"Its a lie!" Betty yelled.

Emeka made to leave
" You aint gonna believe him are you?" Betty whimpered

"see you! How boy's have slept with you in this campus, ehn?" the boy added

Emeka couldn't wait anylonger, he walked away.
"Hey..cool..okay, have a nice day, I just did my job" The boy told her before walking away.

Betty could feel her spinning, her vision becoming blurred, she sat down, picked her phone

"Hello!"

"Edith where ever you are, come now, I'm dying." she managed to say before letting out a heart rending sob.

Edith looked at her friend Betty, pitying her. She has been in a bad mood for todays now- since that episode with Emeka.

"girlie, its high time you'd stop doing this to your self, you've not been eating o" Edith knelt beside her on bed.
Betty didn't open her eyes

"Try to call him again..." she added gently

" Can't you gerrit into your head, that he switched off his phone" Betty snapped, her eyes still shut.

"Now girlie, Keep your cool, huh?" Edith told her

"And do you know whats hurting me more?" Betty sat up.

"no.."

"I saw him with G-gal this afternoon, at The Mama's Kitchen" tears welled up her eyes

"serious?" edith's eyes almost popped out.

"I think..." betty got down from bed.
"I think, he is doing that to hurt me, and I'm truly hurt!" she moved towards the mirror hanging on the wall.

"G-gal of all people! Sometimes I wonder...if...if...if..." her voice trailed off, she sniffed and wiped her tears.

"Hmmmn, but, I think G-gal is the one forcing herself on him, I don't think...Emeka would do such" Edith told her wiping her tears.

Betty smiled a faint smile, she knew that too, but she think she is losing.

"When is Jay-Jay coming back?"

"In the next four days." she replied.

"I'l arrange something, atleast before he comes back, we'l handle G-gal in our own way" Edith said

"How?" Betty couldn't help laughing.

"wait and see! G-gal will have to pay."

Betty stared at Edith suprised, what can she do, but Edith was wearing this determined face,.

Emeka nimbled at his meatpie, he was thinking of Betty, are his actions right? He should have listened to her. And this G-gal following him about, what does she want? Mtchew
He noticed some thing unusual about the restaurant he was in, on each table he saw a boy, each wearing a black jacket, they weren't looking at him, so there's nothing to fear.

"Hi"

He groaned, it was G-gal again, she sat down facing him, wearing that seductive smile. Something caught his attention, he saw Edith talking to someone on phone, she waved at him and hurried out of the restaurant.

"Having lunch?" G-gal asked

does this look like lunch? He wanted to tell her
"Errm...not really" he replied drinking from a can of maltina.

"Hmm, you look nice" she quipped

"Thanks, you see G-gal, you need to leave now, I'm expecting my Girlfriend" he wanted her to leave him alone.

"Hy?"
He looked up it was Betty.

"Hope I'm not disturbing anything?" she asked mockingly.

"I...errm" He felt nervous.

"Emeka, this is a very bad thing to do, G-gal of all people!" Betty said quitely.

"Are you Jealous?" G-gal retorted.

Her hands were too swift, she grabbed the can of maltina Emeka was drinking from, splashed some on G-gal's face and emptied the remnants on her dress.

G-gal stood up astonished!
"You! How dare you!" she made to slap her.
Betty held her hand to stop her.

"Hey steady there. You don't want the drama to start now huh?" Betty chuckled,


"Why don't take a look around you?" Edith said from behind them.

G-gal's eyes moved round-
about five out of Jay-Jay's boys were present.
Tiger waved his dagger as if to say hi, Rox was cleaning his gun with a tissue, three other boy's adjusted their belts in a bid to show them the guns and knives they were carrying.

G-gal gasped, Emeka too was like What the Bleep!
Even Betty was suprised, wow, Edith knew Jay-jay's boys? How comes she got them here. She felt secured.

"So you see..." Betty continued
"You shouldn't try that okay, I'm not the Betty you used to know, I'm now Jay-Jay's sister." she chuckled.

"And I am warning you, stop stalking me! Stay off my affairs! Stop lingering in my paths" Betty told her turning to leave.

"Hey! Didn't you forget something?" Edith was laughing.

"Oh yes!" Betty looked at her hands, and whoof! Her hand landed on G-gal's face, her other hand followed swiftly.

"And that's just the foretaste of what she would do to you, next time you cross her paths" Edith told G-gal giving her a knock. She made some signs, and the waitress brought three cans of maltina.


"Let's party.." Edith whispered as she and Betty emptied the contents on G-gal's head.

"It's enough. Let's go." Betty said dropping the can.
They both left the restaurant with Tiger and the rest following suit.

Emeka swallowed hard, he stared at the 'maltina-drenched' G-gal, she was crying now. He felt like bursting into fits of laughter, he was impressed, Betty was fighting for him, she truly loved him. He left the restaurant happily.****

Betty and her friend Edith rushed into their room gleefully.

"Girlie, you are too much." edith said hugging her friend.

"You show her say you no be Igbo girl wey dem born and train in yoruba land for nothing" Edith was praising her.

Betty laughed.
"Have you ever seen me dance before?" she asked Edith.

"Omo, you sabi dance? Edith was laughing too.

"Hey! Play this song...errm, is it gaga crazy? That one the guy was saying 'sugar cane no be bamboo'..you gerrit?" Betty was removing her jacket.

"We are really going crazy!" Edith replied searching for the song in her phone.

They both started dancing, celebrating victory. Betty's phone rang.
"Who is it again!" she hissed

"Who is it?"

"Who else? Emeka now! " Betty threw the phone and it fell on the bed.

"Hello?" Edith picked the call

"Hello? Baby..."

"She's not the one, she can't talk to you now! Call her later" Edith snapped ending the call.

"Go and learn how to beg properly" she hissed.

Betty was still dancing and humming "who is in the garden, a little fine, can I come and see her? No no no no"

Edith laughed smacking her buttocks.

"Don't reduce the size o" Betty warned her playfully, before slumping into bed.

Jay-Jay was kneeling down before his father Chief Robert Ezigbo. The whole place was tensed.

"jacobs! What has come over you? You- a cultist? Unbelievable!" Robert yelled at his son.

"what happened to the godly upbringing I gave you? You know how much reputation I have in this society?"

Reputation my foot! I like what I'm doing, leave me alone- Jay-Jay wanted to snap. "I'm sorry dad."
he said in a low voice

"shut up! Now listen, no more schooling for you! You're going to work in my company at Zimbabwe! I've made arrangements, you're leaving next week!"Robert yelled before walking into his room.

Jay-Jay gasped, the first thought he had was Betty, he can't leave her, not while G-gal is still alive.
