princesa: 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.
Tanx dear. Can writers vote 2? I want to vote 4 my friend, repogirl.

Oleng laid on her bed that night as she recounted the events of that day. She hadn't been able to say a word to Collins's proposal. She had eventually told him she wanted to go home. He had been disappointed.

Oleng smiled as she remembered Dave's reaction at sighting Collins. Oleng had given Collins, Dave's home address. She had intentionally called Dave outside to say hello to her friend. Dave thinking it was a good thing since it showed Oleng was really committed to their relationship had been astonished to see it was Collins. Collins, the drop dead gorgeous guy who Oleng had introduced him to as 'just a friend'. And of course, driving an infinity jeep!

Oleng didn't understand the sudden wealth Collins seemed to have come into because he had been an average student in school back then. She was however certain that had she looked closely into Dave's eyes, she was sure she would have found them as green as the Incredible Hulk's.

She laughed heartily. Dave had behaved coldly towards her when Collins left. This was fun!

#############################
"Alright Collins. I'll see you tommorrow. Bye."
Oleng ended the call and smiled. She looked surreptiously at Dave. He looked murderous. She smiled again.

"What's the problem, sweetheart?" She asked feighning innocence,

He looked at her and looked away again at the television.

Oleng tried her best to stop smiling but couldn't help it.

Collins had continued disturbing her. He was always flooding her with gifts and calls much to Dave's chagrin. Unknown to Dave, Oleng had all Collins gifts stacked in a big box in her room. Collins had apologised over and over again for the way he had treated her. He didn't know however that she only listened to him because of Dave. She wanted to see how far Dave would go in his possessiveness and jealousy. He didn't know he looked very cute when jealous.

She moved to sit beside him on the sofa and held his hand.

"Talk to me na. What's the problem?" She purred.

"You're asking me?.....What's up with you and that Collins? For the past one month he has been calling you like twenty times a day. Does he work with MTN?" Dave was furious.

Oleng chuckled. She didn't want him to know she was the one who always flashed Collins to call whenever she was with him.

"Collins is just a friend." She informed him but he looked at her in disbelief.

"Just like you introduced me to him, right?"

Oleng bit her lip from smiling.

"He's really just a friend though he wants to be more than that."

"And your reply was?"

"Negative of course!"

"Then why is he still calling you?"

"Isn't he a guy? Do you guys ever take no for an answer?"

"Yes but when the lady is flashing green light for us, of course we'd think she's only playing hard to get."

"Are you saying I'm playing hard to get with Collins?"

"Even more than that! You're playing a dangerous game, Oleng. Is it because he's rich?" He raged.

"I can't believe this. Now you're calling me a gold digger? I'm going home!"

"Fine by me."

Oleng got up from the sofa and carried her hand bag.

At the door, she turned and coldly told him,
"Don't ever call my number again!"

Oleng burst into laughter when she got to his date. This was getting interesting. Funny, the thought of Dave being so jealous was endearing him to her. She believed she was beginning to fall in love with him. She smiled.

She was however not smiling three days later. Dave hadn't called her in all of three days. She was at her tether's end.

"Aunt Vien, what am I going to do now? Should I go over to his place?" She worriedly asked her aunt.

"Its too late in the day for you to go over there. Why did you do it sef?"

"I don't know again o! I just wanted to see how far his jealousy would go."

"You girls of nowadays sef. Its so obvious that he loves you. Why the test? Why toy with his emotions?"

Oleng bit her finger nails. She was so sorry she had started such a nasty game. She was toying with Collins's feelings also which really wasn't fair.

"Aunt Vien, don't mind me. I've learnt my lesson. Dave can't leave me o! Not now that I'm beginning to fall in love with him."

Her aunt was amazed.

"Really?"

"Yes, aunty. This whole game made me realise it."

"At least that's one good thing that has come out of it."

Oleng smiled.

"Call him and tell him you're sorry."

"I prefer doing that face to face. I'll go to his place after my CDS tommorrow."

"Alright dear. Take it easy. Dave loves you. He won't leave you."

"I hope so." She said obviously still worried.

She came back home after her CDS to change from her white shirt and khaki trousers when a man stopped her by the gate. He was carrying a bouquet of flowers and an envelope.

"Are you miss Oleng Akpan?" He asked.

"Yes." She asked suspiciously.

"Mr. Dave Sokari sent me to you." He said and handed her the bouquet of lovely red roses and an envelope.

Oleng was grinning like an idiot by the time she entered the house.
She put the roses aside and opened the envelope. It contained a beautiful card and a set of pearl earrings. She looked at them and smiled.

She read Dave's handwriting on the card.

"I'm far from being a true gentleman but today
I'm taking the first step to being the man of your dreams by writing this apology. I'm sorry, my angel.

I feel the tear go down my cheek,
I notice that my heart is weak,
For the love I have for you,
Will always be gold and true,
I have made some mistakes, they rest in the past,
But know my love will always last,
Even though we are a distance apart,
You always have the key to my heart.

I'm sorry I've become so jealous and
possessive about you.
It's only because I'm afraid other guys will pounce over hot stuff like you!
But I promise not to get worked up and loose my temper again.

Don't forgive me just because I'm saying sorry.
Forgive me because I love you and I don't want to spend a single moment of my life fighting with you.

Truly yours, now and forever.
Dave.

Tears came to her eyes as she read the message over and over again. She was definitely in love with Dave.

As the thought that Eric had also written her poems and sent her gifts in more romantic ways before he had left for the states entered her mind, she quickly picked up her phone to call Dave. They made up over the phone and he promised to visit that evening.

She was preparing lunch when Collins called. She hissed and ignored it but when he continued calling, she answered it. He informed her that he was outside. She wanted to leave him there but thought against it. It wouldn't be good for Dave to meet him there.

She was shocked when she saw him outside the gate. One of his eyes was almost closed and his upper lip was swollen.

"Collins, what happened to you?" She shouted.

He smiled a little.
"Your boyfriend punched me two days ago."

Oleng almost burst into laughter. She however controlled herself.
"I'm so sorry. I've never known Dave to be a violent person."

"Its okay. Its even better now. That's the reason why I didn't call for two days. But Oleng you didn't even dim it fit to call when I didn't call."

"I'm so sorry. How did it happen?"

"I don't know how he got to know my house. Immediately I opened the door, he rushed me. I couldn't even throw a single punch. He warned me to stay away from you."

"I'm so sorry." Oleng was begininng to feel guilty.

"No problem, my love. I would have done the same thing had you being my girl. That's the only reason why I won't involve my father. One word from him and your guy will find himself behind bars." Collins bragged.

"Your father? I thought you didn't know him."

He smiled arrogantly.

"I didn't until a year ago. He abadoned my mum when he found out she was pregnant but after three wives and ten girls, he came in search of me. He's filthy rich. He's bribing me with money to gain my affections."

"Really?"

"Yep. Money isn't my problem anymore."

Oleng could only stare at him.

"Oleng, I haven't given up on you. This," he pointed to his swollen eye and swollen lip. "Won't deter me in my pursuit. I'm prepared to die for you."

"Collins..." She began but was amazed when he walked away. He entered his jeep and drove off. She didn't bother trying to stop him because of the food she was cooking.

She shrugged and went in but couldn't help laughing when she remembered his swollen face. Dave had done that? Amazing! Dave, the gentleman?

She noticed that the knuckles on his right hand were bruised when he came to visit that evening. She held herself from asking about it until he was about leaving.

"What happened to your hand?"

"Which hand?" He prevaricated.

"The one you've been hiding from me all evening."

He laughed a little. "This?" He raised the hand. "Nothing really. I bruised it in the office."

"Really? With what?" She feighed ignorance.

"I...ah...one equipment like that."

"Hmmm.....Please be careful next time."

He laughed and heaved a sigh of relief until she said,
"Collins came to see me this afternoon."

His face coloured in anger.

"I'll kill that guy!" He got up and made to leave but she stopped him.

"He has promised to leave me alone." She lied. She didn't want Dave behind bars.

Tension left his body then. He grinned.

"Had I known a good beating was all he needed to stop him from disturbing you, I would have done it sooner.'

"But Dave, how could you have done that?"

"You must have realized by now that I'm very possessive of you."

"So possessive you had to engage in a fight?"

"Fight? No, a beatdown." He grinned while she eyed him, trying not to smile.

"Angel, its a man thing. You won't understand."

She shrugged and saw him off.

Collins continued calling her but she made sure her phone was either on silent mode or switched off whenever she was with Dave.

On her birthday, while she was dressing up for a date with Dave and her friends, Debbie and Jenny, she received a call from Collins who told her to come outside. She grumbled but went outside to tell him to leave.

She got the shock of her life when she got outside.

Collins was standing beside a murano jeep dangling keys and smiling as if he had won a lottery. On the windscreen of the car was an inscription,

"Will you marry me?"

And of course, that was when Dave came with his toyoya camry.
