Hey Guys am beginning to understand something in this story. When Aunt Vien went to her sister in Port Harcourt, Oleng's mother mentioned about her sister little secret which she ought to tell her. I think the secret is this. when Oleng woke up after delivery she looked for her baby and the Doctor said he died due to some complications. I think Aunt Vien knows about the baby's death all planed with the Doctor and Oleng's mother. what do u think pals?

Oleng became breathless. “That’s not true. Dave told me he didn’t ask of me and when you made a slip by calling my name, he didn’t say anything but was saved by his ringing phone. Who am I to believe?”

“It wasn’t a slip. I called your name intentionally to see what he would say but he didn’t say anything. Later on when I went to pee, he followed me and after a little preamble, he asked after you. Where you are, what you’re doing and so on.”

Oleng was silent at that. She couldn’t believe her ears.

“Oleng, all this while, I saw him as a monster but after speaking with him, I realized there's more to it than what meets the eye concerning your break up.”

“Really?” she replied with great doubt.

“Yes. He gave me the impression that you broke up with him. He said….”

“What? That I broke up with him? That filthy liar! He wanted you to feel sorry for him and you fell for it. How could you? After all I told you he did to me? Unbelievable.” she felt betrayed.

“Oleng listen….”

“No, you listen. I know he came back to Nigeria all flashy and all but I refuse to forget what he did to me. You weren’t there so I don’t expect you to understand. He wasn’t there when Mrs. Akpan made life a living hell for me. He wasn’t there when I was jeered at by my cousin or when people whispered about me when I went to the hospital for antenatal or when I carried his bastard for nine months or when I was in labor or put to bed or when I discovered the baby was dead. Where was he?” she screamed bitterly “And now he has the guts to lie that I broke up with him! He can be the most handsome, richest and successful man on earth but to me he is just a loser for abandoning me when I needed him most.” she continued shouting.

Zinny couldn’t help the tears that gathered in her eyes at the pain her friend had gone through.

“I’m sorry” was all she could say.

Oleng clamed down. “I’ve to go now. I’ll call you some other time. Bye.” she said and ended the call in a perfunctory way without waiting for Zinny to say good bye too.

She was thinking deeply when her aunt came into the room. She sat down on the bed and enveloped her in a bear hug.

“I didn’t mean to eavesdrop but I heard you yelling so I had to come and find out what was upsetting you”

“I promised myself not to get worked up over him again but I couldn’t stop myself. He hurt me so much and now he goes about saying I’m the one who broke up with him and not the other way round.”

“Don’t mind him. He has probably realized his folly of yesteryears and to save face, he has to claim you broke up with him.”

“How can he do that when he knows what he did?” she raised eyes full of pain to look at her dear aunt.

“Like you said, he’s just a loser…..Tell me one thing though, you still love him, don’t you? I mean you still have feelings for him” she looked into the eyes of her niece as she asked her.

Oleng shook her head vigorously. “No. I just have this deep hatred for him for not only dumping me but lying about it as well. If I could see him now, I’d shoot him between his eyes without a second thought.” she vehemently told her shocked aunt.

“Oleng!” she exclaimed. “Don’t ever say such again. You can’t take his life even though he was mean to you. Don’t even think of such things not to talk of actually saying them.” her Aunt looked scandalized.

“I just told you my mind.” was what Oleng simply said leaving her aunt to stare at her.

Aunt Vien started thinking of who would tell her where she could find a good psychologist because Oleng desperately needed one before she would do something very foolish that could ruin her life.

She remembered what her sister had told her that fateful day.

Oleng was really a very passionate person. She loved and hated passionately.

##############################
Oleng and Dave went out the following evening. At first she felt very uncomfortable around him. He noticed it and made her relax by avoiding that particular topic and behaved as if events of the day before didn’t happen. She relaxed and enjoyed herself thoroughly. When it was late and they were about to leave, he paused.

“Sweetheart, I know I’m not supposed to bring up what I told you yesterday but I can’t help it. All I ask is for you to really think about it. Please. I promise never to break your heart.”

Oleng could only nod. She spent that whole week thinking. When her aunt noticed how distracted she was, she asked what the problem was and Oleng told her what Dave had told her. Her aunt was joyous.

“This is wonderful news. I approve of him. Don’t give it a second thought. Be his girlfriend.” she cheerfully told her niece.

Oleng shook her head. “It’s not that simple, Aunt Vien. I don’t love him. I don’t feel that strong affection for him. I’ve always seen him as a brother.”

“Love grows my dear. You’ll grow to love him.”

“Aunt Vien, Dave and I have been together for a while now. Don’t you think I would have fallen in love with him by now?”

“Did you fall in love with Eric within months?”

“No.”

“See? What are we talking about here? You’ll grow to love Dave. He’s a nice guy. Not drop dead gorgeous but he's okay. A guy that never fails to bring goodies for Matthew and I is approved by me.” she joked and Oleng laughed.

“Aunty! Is it the goodies he brings for you and Matthew that is influencing your decision?” she nudged her aunt with her elbow.

“No but you can’t blame me my dear. You know we were practically living from hand to mouth before you started serving. So a rich and generous in- law will be highly welcomed.” she informed her, grinning broadly and Oleng couldn’t help agreeing with her. Things had really been rough for them.

She thought and thought about Dave’s proposal and decided to say yes. She knew she had sworn off men but Dave was an okay looking guy, loving, kind, generous, caring; to name a few of his wonderful qualities. She tried to look for flaws in his character but came wanting.

She could only see that he was a very secretive person with the evidence of hiding his love for her all these years and she could never detect whenever he was angry. She hoped he would open up to her when they started dating. She didn’t want a relationship in which she would be the only one always pouring her heart out. She would have to work on him.

She didn’t outrightly come out to tell him she had accepted his proposal but somehow they just fell into the pattern of boyfriend and girlfriend. He introduced her outside as his girlfriend and she did likewise.

When he took her to his office to show her off; she believed, his colleagues were all over her. They called him a lucky devil for having such a queen as his girlfriend. One even secretly gave her his number thinking she was the double dating type. She had only laughed.

She and Collins were still friends and hung out every once in awhile especially when Dave wasn't around. Oleng noticed the way he behaved around her but chose to ignore it. He had blown his chances with her; not that she would have dated him anyway.

He pleaded with her over and over again for him to take her out on his birthday and she finally obliged. Dave wasn't happy about it because she had turned him down for an outing. She was glad to see he was very jealous. It made her feel special.

She and Collins went to a fast food joint. Dave called her every twenty minutes to check up on her.

"Your guy is very possessive." Collins chuckled after she finished answering yet another phone call from Dave.
"Can't say I blame him. You're a rare gem."

Oleng rolled her eyes.

"It's true. I made a mistake letting you go in school. I...I want you back." He blurted out.

Oleng stared at him as if he'd grown two horns.
"What about your virgin girlfriend, Obot?" She sarcastically asked.

Collins squirmed on his seat. He became very uneasy.
"She...she lied to me. She wasn't a virgin. I caught her with another girl in bed."

Oleng held her tongue from saying, 'Serves you right!"

"Oleng," he began softly. "I know I made a terrible mistake judging you the way I did. I'm so sorry. I was carried away by self righteousness. I had no right whatsoever to judge you and I've regretted my actions ever since. No one has any right to judge someone else's past. You kept yourself despite your past but I was feeling too self righteous to realise that. All through my service year, I kept thinking about you. I didn't find a girl who could hold a candle to you. I really want you back despite the fact that you're in a relationship."

"You want me back?" Oleng was amazed. "But Collins, we were only good friends back then, we weren't dating or anything."

"I know but then I fantazised about you being my wife and losing my virginty to you and all that."

Oleng eyed him suspiciously. "What are you saying, Collins?"

Collins looked deep into her eyes.

"I want to lose my virginty to you and no other."

Audry, nice story you have here.

Dear Readers, please don't be selfish. You read this and other stories here for free without paying. But there's someone else who has the resources to 'pay' the writers, all you are required to do is to nominate 3 writers a month and give them a chance to get a financial 'thank you'.

How hard can that be?

Well, If you've changed ur mind, the link is on my signature. Thank you.
