Episode 8

"oh..I meant your name "
He continued
I should comport myself.. I can do this
"yes.. OK..am bukky.. Not the cleaner.. Am a cleaner here but...
I had to keep quiet.. My mind kept telling me I wasn't making sense.
He was just smiling.. I know he must be thinking I was crushing on him already.. Mtcheeww.. I blame am?
"sir please if you would excuse me"
I picked up his glasses and handed it over to him as I hurried out of sight.. He watched me till I went out of sight.. It was really uncomfortable..I was greatly relieved that I was able to escape.. I just hope I don't run into him again..
Later that evening I went back to madam Clara as she had instructed.. She took me upstairs.. Close to her room
"I want you close so I can ensure no one sees this room"
She explained when I had that suspicious look
"This is clarise.. She would help you with your lessons "
I was introduced to a fair plumpy woman.. She was in her middle age
"how are you bukky..? "
She extended her hand for an handshake..as a good girl I extend with my two hands as a sign of respect
"no no.. You don't shake like that"
She corrected immediately.. I looked back to madam Clara in surprise.. She only smiled in response..
"nawa o..see oyinbo"
I thought
I quickly rounded up with my chores and stole into my secret Room to practice..the joy I felt doing what I love was immense..I slept off.. And woke up late the next day
I hurried to clean the hall before vodka the devil arrives there for her model practice
"why are you late you brat! "
She hollered at me.. Like I stole millions from her purse
"vodka let her be.. Please"
God! It was jeremy
"Jeremy!" Vodka rushed to him and held him like he was a priced potato
I kept my head down.. I don't want trouble at all.. This one that vodka the devil has Jeremy to herself.. He was starring at me o
"Oga Abeg no call me abeg"
But he did.. Jesus!
"bukky..how are you"

Episode 9

I pretended like I didn't hear him at all..because I could feel vodka thunder eyes on me..I tell you if eyes had bullets that girl would have shot me till she made sure I had no breathe left
I quickly turned to leave
"Bukky.."
He called out again..it was way obvious now because everyone in the hall heard him call me..I had to reply..
"S..ir ..good morning sir"
I turned to leave again
"How are you?"
Oluwa help me o
"Na by force to answer again..or was he doing this on purpose?"
I thought and tried as much to avoid vodka eyes
"Am fine sir"
It seemed he noticed I wasn't comfortable with vodka presence.. So he didn't stop me when I hurried off..
I stayed in my secret room...all thru the day..designing and drawing out patterns..I was tired already but I picked out one of the pattern and started sewing..I just needed to escape vodka for the whole day..I knew she must be searching for me..and I was right..the moment I stepped out to get something to eat she thundered my name from behind..it was like thunder struck me from behind..
"Follow me"
I did.. Like I had no choice..she took me to her crew..those who laughed me to scorn the day met me at the gate
"Jovita..franca..meet the pig who has been promoted"
They both stopped their make up to stare at me..and in unison they burst out laughing..
"OK quickly..Clean our shoes.."
They handed shoes with no specific number.. Of different quality
"Be careful.They are worth more than your penniless life OK?"
Vodka warned..I refused to let the tears drop.. I smiled and went to work..
"Leave that..wipe the mirrors clean"
I did as well..you know God fights for you everytime..especially when you need him to visit some people.I wished in my heart that she should miss her step and fall hard.. And it happened my dear reader..she fell while charging at me for not cleaning her silver shoe to her taste..my people I had to laugh to my satisfaction o..
"Are you mad?! Have you forgotten your place! You bloody cleaner!"
She raised her hand to slap me
"Bukky!"
Jeremy again.. Wait what was his problem self..he was the reason I got into this mess in the first place..but at least he saved vodka because if she had slapped me..well..my hands are not withered
"Bukky come with me..my mother wants to see you"
What?! Now now..his mother.. Wait marriage?
"Your mother sir?"
I heard to ask o..
He smiled when he noticed I didn't understand
"Madam clara wants to see you"
He explained.. Oh my God..he is madam clara's son?

Episode 10

I tailed him from behind..I didn't want him to ask me anything so its best I observed a little distance..I was certain he noticed.. He didn't say anything till when we got to the office
"I am not eating you bukky"
He said before he opened the door to let me in first.i met madam Clara examining the gown I had been sewing..she turned to see both of us with glimmer in her eyes
"My dear you did this?"
She questioned with smiles on her face
"Yes ma but I am not true yet"
I emphasised on the "I am not true yet" just in case she concluded that it was a disaster..
"My God"
My mind was running with different thoughts..was is that bad?..I tried to look at prince charming with my cornered eyes but his eyes were on me like torchlight so I quickly averted my eyes..
"This is superb"
My face brimmed with smiles
"You are a pretty girl"
Jeremy commented..my smile seized immediately.. It was the same words Goliath had told me before he tried to rape me..what does this one want now?
"Isnt she mum?"
He questioned madam Clara
"Of course she is..and talented as well"
Madam Clara replied still checking out the silver coloured gown
"Then what is she doing as a cleaner?"
Jeremy questioned further..
"Jeremy am on it..I had wanted her to wait for a year but with this I am seeing..am thinking two months she should finish her training and get out there..she would be the face of this house..I need pretty and talented people"

"See as mama and pikin dey gossip me for my presence" I thought..I really didn't understand the good news until Jeremy explained
"Won't you thank mummy..you would be a model in 2months!"

"Eh?".. It was like I didn't hear well..
Tears dropped from my eyes..I was looking for the right word to thank her but my mouth opened and nothing came out
" awwwnn come here dear"
She called to me and opened her arms to hug me..I cried because it was the only way i could express myself

But now it became another battle ground..the battle for the fittest..madam Clara stopped me from being a cleaner immediately.. Did I tell you that vodka was the face of the house..and that she had won the award for over five years..
"Girls gather around..bukky would be counted among you girls as a model..and of course participate in the competition next year"
Madam Clara dropped the bombshell..the room went cold..vodka was broken..she quietly got up...stopped at my front and gave me that malicious look before she walked out..wetin concern me..?..who she help

Caught In The Moment

Episode 11

I am going to be a model?! I was still trying to conserve the joy I felt..I felt like calling my mum..but I had no phone yet..how I miss her..this was going to be sweet..or so I thought until clarise started her cat-walk training session..she always said
"Keep up a smile when needed and a proud face as wanted"
A mystery I thought
And so the high heels came..when I saw the shoes..these ones where higher heels, my eyes widened
"I am going to wear these?"
I gasped in surprise
"Of course..you would even learn to run with them"
I laughed in unison with clarise..although I silently wished in my heart that she didn't really mean that I would run in these shoes.
"Nah die be that"
For weeks I remained in training apartment..everything I needed was available at my request..I know madam Clara estimated two months..but i planned to be ready in few weeks..soon I could cat-walk so well that clarise would hug and peck me..I could carry my shoulder high..and walk with my own style.. I was making rapid progress..I didn't stop sewing and drawing out my patterns..all the dress I wore,I drew and sew it out myself..madam Clara took one and made a hundred to sell..the sales was great and people started booking down..and then I got my first salary and share of the profit made from the dress I sew..250thousand naira..Jesus.. What do I do with all these money..madam Clara opened up an account for me..I took part time in lagos state university..
There was just one little issue now..it was prince charming
"Bukky come with me"
He called out to me as I attempted to enter my training room..as usual I tailed from behind..observing a very conservative distance..
"Bukky THE DAILY SUN wants a cover for their couple magazine..despite my reservations that you are not ready yet Jeremy has insisted he wants you for the photo instead of vodka..can you do it?"
I was quiet and starred at both madam Clara and Jeremy..I don't trust this Jeremy
"I can't...
Before I could drop the word Jeremy concluded
" she can do it"
And so I was transformed into a pink stylish gown and within minutes we were in the studio
"You're beautiful bukky"
I took a step backwards but Jeremy drew me back and kissed my cheek, his lips sent shivers down my spine, I didn't know if I was scared, but I knew I was attracted to him at that moment..the photographer was smart and took the shot..i was shivering
"Hey..look at me..its just you and me"
His voice was calm and caressing

Caught In The Moment

Episode 12

I took a deep breathe and inhaled deeply to calm my nerves and accept the fact that a man was touching me and was too close to me..I inhaled his scent..and slowly I began to let go..I laughed when he made a face..the photographer exclaimed and quickly took the shot
"What a beauty he commented"
Jeremy held my waist to his groin and bend to meet my face..I didn't know if he wanted to kiss me but I wasn't ready to find out so I threw my head backwards to avoid that
"Perfect!"
The photographer exclaimed again..
Really?! I was shocked when I saw the pictures..they were magnificent! And all I just did was try to escape all Jeremy's advances..
"You come here"
I came across vodka the devil on my way back to my training room..maybe she thinks I am still a cleaner..I ignored and attempted to walk past her but she caught my arm
"Lemme make this straight to you pig..stay off jeremy! Don't you think because you now have this temporal glory you think you have it all..remember you were once a cleaner"
I kept quiet till she finished her ranting..and then I offered a smile
"In everything you said..vodka...
It was the first time I called her by name..I could see the shock on her face..
" I loved the part where you said I was once a cleaner..once..but not anymore..and the throne you sit on now..would soon be someone else's"
I released my arm from her grip..it was the first time I got her speechless.. God it felt so good as I walked away with that victory smile..but now I need to watch out because I just threw a challenge right?
In one month I was ready..I proved it when madam Clara watch me do everything a model is to do..I even insisted I do my own make up and she agreed to it..
I was enlisted to perform in a fashion parade to show case our type of clothes for sale..this was my first time..I quickly got an iphone that has good camera quality..I gave clarise to take the shot for me when I marched in..I was putting on a black sparkling gown with a black Italian high heels..we all stayed in line..vodka was at front. she kept smiling and whispering to her crew..it got to my turn..Jeremy was to come out next..and so I marched out..but i felt the shoe I was putting on was shaky..oh no!..I managed myself but when I was marching back the wedge pulled off..it would have been hell but Jeremy caught me as my hair flew backwards..the audience roared with applauds thinking it was one style like that
"I got you pretty"
Immediately I remembered David

Episode 13

"Watch your step next time pig"
Vodka whispered to me and laughed off with her crew when I was safely behind the curtains..I should have known..
"Bukky are you OK?"
Madam Clara rushed to me..cupped my cheek..raised my eyelids with her finger to see my eyes..like I had a fever..
"This wedge was removed and temporarily held with a plastic gum"
Jeremy explained when he had examined the shoe..I just kept quiet while they all deliberated..my mind was somewhere else..was with someone else..David..I remembered when he caught me when I had slipped back then at Christmas Carroll..and just the same exact word
"I got you pretty"
I wonder what he was up to now..was he ok?..is he still mad at me for leaving him stranded at the altar?..does he still love me?

preparation for the competition had started..we were supposed to sew a particular dress which would be considered by the board of directors.. Whoever is deem worthy would proceed to the next stage...now I had two problems..vodka and Jeremy..lemme start with Jeremy..he became too bossy..he made me do things even against my own wish..he would want me to snap pictures at the studio with him..go out to eat breakfast..lunch..dinner..
"Ahhhhh kilode!!
His advances towards me was to rapid that I doubted his intentions..maybe he just wants to see my pant and dump me..he is handsome anyway and I could see the way girls flocked around him like lost herds..
One day he took me out as usual..and while coming back he held my waist.. I felt uncomfortable with that but he was madam Clara's son..I couldn't shake his hand off but this is my body and he should respect that fact..I boldly removed his hand..he put it again..I removed it..
" is something wrong?"
I opened my mouth but I still considered madam Clara and reserved my comment
"No please tell me..I am making you feel uncomfortable?"
Hmm this guy is pushing me o..
"Please tell me"

"OK you wanna hear..i don't like the way you touch me like I am your property.. I don't like the way you boss me around! I am not your puppet..I have my wishes..my desires. Not everything should be your way..!"
He was surprisingly calm and quiet..I noticed he was hurt
"I thought you enjoyed every single moment with me"
He blurted out..I scoffed
"I used to but you tell me what to eat..what to wear..and you even insist even when I don't want to"
He took a step backwards..
"Am sorry"
He left..oops I didn't mean to hurt him..but he begged me to talk nah..Is it my fault?

Episode 14

"Hello mum"
I called my mum..its been a while..and I miss her so much
"Bisola?" Bisola?"
My mum was the only one that calls me by my full name..her voice sounded desperate
"Its me mum"
She burst into tears
"Bisola please come home I beg you.. Please"
I was quiet while she kept pleading..I had a lot of questions to ask..how about my dad? What about my younger sister? And of course David..
"Mum i am fine..I am perfectly fine..and I would come home soon"
I have been avoiding Jeremy but one faithful evening after our model lessons..I met him down the hall way.. There was no way I could turn back..he had spotted me already..so I counted my steps timidly till we got close
"Good.. Good evening ..Sir"
I muttered and attempted to walk past him but he held my arm back..my heart missed a bit..
"Bukky why are you avoiding me?"
He blurted out..I felt I would just hurt him by being close to him..but it seemed staying away hurt him more
"Sir...
He scoffed
" please drop the formality..I am Jeremy "
I swallowed hard..
"OK sir..I mean Je...Jeremy.. Its just that I don't know how to apologize for what I said the other day..I know I hurt you..but I didn't mean to"
He was quiet..he drew me back to stand in front and face him..I couldn't look at his face..God knows that if I had teleportation powers I would disappear..fast!!
He used his hand to touch my jaw and raised my head to meet his gaze..God! Was this guy seducing me?..
"Bukky..i was wrong..and I apologize right?"
I wanted to step backwards but I didn't want him to feel bad..
"Yes but I shouldn't have addressed you like that..you didn't do anything wrong..all you wanted was to make me happy..and I threw it at your face..for that I am deeply sorry"
An uncomfortable silence stood in between us..he was starring at me..I couldn't shake off his gaze..my legs were shaking..oh no! He was coming closer..reaching for my lips..
"Bukky.."
He muttered when I attempted to withdrew from him..
"God..which kind thing be dis"
I thought..I didn't want to hurt him again..so I lifted my head a little to let him have what he wanted..he was a breathe away..I was shivering seriously and then he touched my lips..a cold shock went down my spine. I didn't kiss him back..I just allowed him enjoy the taste..I was about to let go..I was getting the passion..I parted my lips now and responded a little
"Bukky?"
Madam Clara called from behind us..my spirit left my body.. Probably to the spirit world..I am in big trouble

Caught In The Moment

Episode 15

I had a lot on my mind..I was restless..thank God Jeremy had allow me excuse myself while he talked with his mother..I didn't know what my fate would be now..why did I allow him kiss me? Did I enjoy the kiss? Did I want it to end?..I touched my lips..something else flashed my mind..when I had called my mum..she had said something about David when I asked
"David?..David went to lagos a month after he lost his dad..I heard he is in the united States now"
My mom had informed me..David was in lagos and I didn't come across him..well lagos is a big city sha..my mind trailed back to madam Clara..the main problem I had now..
Since the stage one of the competition is just two days away, I continued sewing my black mini-laced gown..I planned to match it up with a yellow hat, yellow bag, had a high class woven high shoe with the same yellow colour..
I had a knock..my heart sounded in my ears..mtcheeeww it was just clarise..what a relief..I breathe down..just that of all the good news clarise had always brought, she just had to bring a bad one this time
"Bukky, madam Clara wants to see you!"
God..I didn't know how to get up from where I sat..it was unexplainable.. I have never been that scared of anything..
I would have run back when I got to the door post of her office..but clarise has eyes on me like that of an eagle..mtcheeww..this clarise self..
I entered and kept my head down..I was extremely timid.. I couldn't look up to her face..
"Bukky?"
She called out as she stood up from her chair and paced round me.. I was using my cornered eye to pry at her o..this one that she is pacing round me..anything can happen and I don't want to die..
"Jeremy is my son..and I don't joke with him..I don't joke with both my sons"
Both? They were two? Where is the other one?..a question I didn't dare ask..but it seemed she noticed the frown on my face so she explained
"They are not of the same father..my other son had chosen to stay with his father but he is back to me..my point is..Jeremy has convinced me that he loves you..the only problem is when you hurt my son..I will hunt you"
She was at my back..mehn my spirit has refused to come back from the spirit land..surprisingly she touched me and laughed
"Dont just hurt my son..case closed..you can go"
Eh? Just like that?
"Why are you still standing there..shuuhh"
I laughed..thanked her and hurried in joy back to my sewing machine..
But my Joy faded..the dress I was sewing had been torn to pieces..

Caught In The Moment

Episode 16

I had to look for somewhere to sit first and accept the fact that what I am seeing was real..you know that awkward moment when you don't want to accept what you are seeing..but you know its real yet you don't want to believe it. I stood up and picked up all the pieces I could reach..I had less than 33hours to the first stage of the competition, judging from the fact that it was late in the evening already..I knew there was only one person responsible.. Vodka.
No..I just can't sit here and let her have her way..I got up and went thru my patterns..a tear fell from my eyes..I cleaned it off..now is not the time to cry..it would take me forever to sew this gown again..I had been sewing it for weeks..but then..nothing is impossible if u put your mind to it..i sat and started sewing..I boiled a cup of coffee to keep me awake..but the sleep was strong sha. Anyway I overcame..I could here the sound of my machine reverberating in echoes when it was late in the night..when it was dawn I was half way close.. I picked up the buttons and some relevant pieces she had torn and put them back in place..
Time was against me now..the spectators had gathered at the table .and I could hear thru the the large speakers as the judges made their decision
"Bukky.. What are you still doing here"
God knows I wanted it to be Jeremy..but he wasn't even here..for two days he has not seen me and he didn't even bother to dial my number..
Wait..does he have my number?..oops! He doesn't..but at least he should have checked my training room..
Clarise had rushed to me..
"I am almost done please pass me that button" she hurriedly passed it to me
"What happened pretty. Your eyes are all swollen..you don't look good..you've not been sleeping?"
I nodded in affirmation..and explained how I met my gown torn to pieces..
"Oluwatoke bisola"
That's my name..!
"Hurry!"
Clarise hastened me..but I had not weaved the left-hand side of the dress
"There is no time!"
Clarise snatched it from me and led me to the hall..All eyes turned to me..'Mehn I looked horrible but I no send..no be today yanch dey back"
..I noticed clarise sneaked to inform madam Clara of my problem..
I told them the type of gown I sewed..the quality and the occasion it should be used for..I noticed Jeremy at the other end opposite madam Clara.. Vodka was standing beside him..I ignored when he tried to signal me to look at his direction..
"Bukky please bring the gown for inspection?"
OK nah..see wahala..

Caught In The Moment

Episode 17

I hesitated for a while..vodka was smiling, I could notice her..God if this cloth gets into their hand they would surely find out that its not completed..
But then, I took a bold step and handed them the cloth.. The man sitting in the middle snatched it and inspected thoroughly.. He was smiling already.. But half way he frowned..ehen..I knew he had seen it..my heart was beating against my chest..he was about to say something but madam Clara was quick to get to him and whispered something I didn't understand
"You are not feeling well?..and that's the reason you couldn't finish the gown?"
Eh?..I looked over to madam clara who signalled me to play along
'Yes..s..sir"
My swollen eyes was a blessing..it proved the lie was indeed sweet..
"You do look sick..have you taken drugs?"
He pushed further..I nodded in response..he took a minute and then finally spoke out
"This gown is the best I have witnessed today..even if it wasn't completed..and for the fact that you brought it this far despite your ailment..then my dear you deserve even more than a pass..you got a distinction"
I shouted for joy as everyone applauded..I know most of them didn't want to applaud but they had no choice nah..
I could see vodka as she walked towards me after the competition ended..she had that rage in her eyes..i had to quicken my steps but she caught up with me and held me back with force..
"Don't you think this is over pig!"
I waited and stared at her for a while..if I reply this girl she might tear me to pieces..I attempted to walk past her again but she hurried to my front again..
"Oluwa which kind wahala be dis"

"Vodka please I don't want trouble"
I spoke out and tried one last time to find my way but she wouldn't let me..
"You think because madam Clara likes you..oh you just wait.. Or you think its Jeremy.. I promised I wouldn't tell you but Jeremy and I had a bet that he would win you over within a week!..poor cheap girl..it seems I lost to him anyway"
What?!..I acted calm and did what every responsible young lady would do..I defended Jeremy..there was no way he would do that to me..madam Clara told me he confessed he loved me..and the kiss? I let him kiss me. Not because I wanted it..
Wait, he thinks because I let him kiss me I am cheap..or he got me?..no no..I waved it off..vodka had dared me to meet her up in her room where Jeremy would meet her that night..and it was confirmed..I met Jeremy smooching vodka..
"Jeremy?"

Caught In The Moment

Episode 18

He turned back in shock!..I couldn't move from where I stood..vodka had that smile of victory..he approach me slowly like I was attempting to run
"Bukky..bukky..its not what you think..
I didn't let him finish..I hurried off..still he ran after me
" bukky please listen to me"

"Jeremy please its not like we are dating..so you owe me no explanation"
I tried to convince him to let me be for the moment, to get my head straight..
"Bukky please just let me explain"
I stopped to face him..I wasn't too mad about him smooching vodka..i just came into the system..himself and vodka had been together for a long time..so there is no way he would just love me like that..what hurt me so bad was the fact that he made a bet to make me look cheap..and so when I stopped, I didn't stop to listen, but to ask him directly
"Jeremy I dare you to tell me the truth..you had a bet with vodka right?"
He tried to avoid my eyes as I tried to look into them..to tell if he would lie..
"Jeremy answer me!"
Tears was dropping from my eyes but I cleaned it off
"Yes..but bukky..."
I swear I didn't mean to but the moment I heard his answer, I landed a slap on his face
"I let you kiss me..sir..how could you .."
I didn't know what else to say..he just kept his eyes on me..
"Please stay away from me..sir"
I need to go back to being formal..he didn't stop me anymore as I hurried off..I ran to my room and locked myself up..I was supposed to cry right?..but I didn't..I was mad, I was consumed with anger..
I remembered back then in the fast food..and all lizzy did to me..and then I remembered her last words
"Yes my dear..life is never fair"
And yes it isn't..vodka has pushed me too far..the world is not where the innocents lives. If you are not ready to bend the rules a little.. You would always be used to others will..
If vodka wants a battle..she has got it..
I freshened up..i knew vodka would be having her model lessons in the lesson hall..well she tore my laced gown right..i stole into her room and made sure all the cloths she had on her sewing menu was torn beyond repair..
When I was certain of that..I went straight to the model hall..it was open for every model..just that vodka made sure no one used the hall whenever she was there..that was about to change..
I wore the mini laced gown I had sewed..pick my yellow hand bag and high laced gold yellow shoe..and with confidence I bounced into the hall..here is where the battle begins

Caught In The Moment

Episode 19A

You know that moment when your enemies see your reaction sometimes..they tend to wonder
"What is this....

" sssshhhhh"
I hushed vodka..placing a finger on her lips as I got close to her..she was shocked..I knew she never dreamt in her entire life that I would even stand close to her..
"Vodka..you are a model..live up to it..you don't have to scream like a Baboo every time you know"
I heard other models in the hall giggle until she turned to face them with that fierce look and they all fell back to form..

I took a chair to sit and cross my legs..of course it was vodka's favourite chair but who cares?
"Oh I see what this is about..because you now realise Jeremy can never be yours..you now result to this cheap act"
She smiled with a gesture and folded her arms, expecting her crew to laugh at what she said, but they didn't
"And yet your Jeremy ran after me like a lost puppy..how does that feel..knowing you would always come second?"
Yes! It got to her. I could see it in her expression.. She attempted to say something else but I interrupted her
"And to you all...
I was now trying to woo a crew to myself
" that continue to live under the shadow of a fellow model, like she is your god..don't you desire your freedom..a chance to be in the lime light? Instead of always brushing the shoes of your equal model?..The time is now, take your chance and join me"
Vodka burst out laughing to my oral essay until three models left her side to meet me..and then 4 to 6 until one of her bestie "jovita" left her side
"Jovita?"

"Am sorry vodka but I'm tired of being your house help.." Jovita blurted out..
It was just 3 with her now..she walked up to me with red eyes..I didn't move an inch like she had expected..
"You don't know what you just got yourself into pig..I hope you are ready?"
I shook my head like I had pity on her..
"Unlike you vodka..I don't fall cheap.. Girls you need to see Jeremy pricing a cheap stock yester night!"
They all burst out laughing..she was hurt and I felt so good..she raised her hand to slap me but jovita came to the rescue and caught her hand
"Shhuuuuhhh...please go cry somewhere else"
I said and turn to the girls..
"Who is ready to show case!!"
They a screamed in joy as we all went on, ignoring her completely..It took her minutes before she could conserve the shame and walk out..
Eyah sorry sister, just wait to see your precious clothes, all torn and used as the new carpet!!

Abel�����: Caught In The Moment

Episode 19b

Within minutes she charged back to the hall
"Bukky who tore my clothes!"
I ignored her completely and continue to cheer jovita as she practiced her cat-walking lesson
"Bukky I am talking to you"

"Vodka please let her be"
Jeremy again..vodka quickly ran to him like he was her saviour
"Jeremy she tore my clothes!"
Surprisingly he ignored her and walked up to me
Awwww...that must really hurt
He stopped facing me..starring into my eyes..I didn't look away this time..I stared back..until he spoke out
"Bukky we need to talk"

"No"
I knew that was exactly what he wanted and I was quick to respond as I attempted to walk out..but he held me back..his hand was cold and soft..I knew he sensed the anger I felt..he had never seen me in this form before.. I was this sweet innocent girl..but its quite different now
"Please bukky..give me a chance to explain"
I stopped and looked at the faces of my new crew..they all had that beckoning face..
"OK.."
I went with him but stopped to face vodka while we walked out.
"See? You would always be second best"
She frowned but Jeremy was there .she wouldn't dare raise her hand..
I was just getting started with her..she would regret the day she met bisola
"Bukky the day you met me, wasn't the day I first saw you"
Hmm..interesting
"vodka insisted i do not go for you because you were an ordinary cleaner. Which would ruin my reputation.. Myself and vodka were in a relationship years back but we broke up..so she made a bet that if I don't win you in a week..I would come back to her"
He paused for a while to see if I was attentive..trust me, I was over attentive self .I signalled him to go on..me I was just looking for new info to deal with vodka
"I swear I didn't know I would fall for you in the process.. Vodka blackmailed me to come to her room that night..threatening to tell you about the bet if I refuse to do what she asked"
Oh so vodka planned all this..I see..
"Bukky please I am very sorry"
I looked at him for a while..I could tell he was telling the truth.. So I forgave him..but to get to that level of intimacy, that would take a very very long time. Truth is, I don't trust the guy to keep my heart anymore..
"I forgive you".
I opened my arms and embraced him..I could feel his joy until when clarise rushed to both of us, trying to catch her breathe
" Jeremy, its madam Clara, she has been rushed to the hospital, she collapsed few minutes back"
Oh no! Not madam Clara please

Episode 20

No this isn't happening.. I was restless..Jeremy and myself had rushed down to "Royin specialist hospital" where she had been admitted..what really happened was a mystery we both wished we knew..clarise instructed that madam Clara's situation should be a secret for now..until we know what exactly happened..
Jeremy was glad I was with him..although I initially refuse him to touch me..but later on, I sat down with him and brought his head down to my chest to rest..I could see he was lost..
We both slept in the hospital till the next day when the doctor appeared to ease our curious minds.
"Please I need to speak with a family member"
The doctor spoke out..the look on his face was telling me something was not right..
"Doctor if you have anything to say, you can tell us together.. We are all family"
Hmm I love that..the doctor sighed and held Jeremy by his shoulder to ease him a bit before he spoke out
"Your mother has been harbouring a dangerous cancer.. Leukemia"
Oh my God! I remembered back in school, in biological class, leukemia was said to have no cure!
"Doctor please check again, there is no way I am gonna believe that"
Jeremy said, smiling like he was alright, I knew he wasn't..
"Jeremy there is still a little hope..she can have a chemotherapy.. Its a fifty fifty chance. Who knows, many has been cured thru chemotherapy"
Clarise tried to calm Jeremy but he was unsettled. What do I do?..madam Clara has been a mother to me, she picked me from dust, we can't just lose her like that..
"Jeremy"
I gently placed my hand on his back..he turned back in shock..like he was lost.
"Jeremy please let's go with the chemotherapy"
He nodded to my idea, like he had no choice left.
"I would still need the approval of your mother and the elder son as she revealed to me"
The doctor concluded, tapped Jeremy by his shoulder and went on.
An hour later we were allowed to go in to see her..surprisingly she had that smile which got me confused, maybe she didn't hear what the doctor said about her ailment..
"Jeremy its gonna be fine"
She said in a weak tone..I just stood at the door. I wouldn't want to disturb mother and son..
"No mom its not. It's not, did you hear the doctor, he said...

" Jeremy?"
I called out to him, he shouldn't be putting more stress on the woman, she is the one with the ailment..
"Mum, I am calling David, he has to come home"
Wait? Which David.. Is it my David? Oh no! Please it shouldn't be the David I know. Please...

Written by
Onyeneke Abel
Episode 21

There is more than a million David in this world, so it's not certain its the David I know, despite the fact that I tried to convince myself with this thought, my mind won't let me be..
"It's David..its not David"
You can imagine that endless struggle, I remembered my mum telling me he had travelled abroad, I didn't want to ask Jeremy about it, he had alot on his plate now..but I couldn't bear it abeg
"Jeremy, this David, he travelled abroad?"
I asked one evening when we were on our way to the hospital
"Yes, why?"
My heart missed a bit, he should have said no, at least lie small to keep my mind at ease a little..
"Hmm, he stayed in Ibadan before right?"
Jeremy frowned at my question, what was he thinking now
"My brother never stayed in Ibadan"
Was I disappointed or relieved, I couldn't tell, maybe it's not David after all..
"What's this about? You know my brother?"
I could read jealousy in his tone..mtcheeeww, what is wrong with this one self..
"No, I thought it was someone I knew"
We got to the hospital, the doctor was now giving specific instructions on how to care for madam Clara
"On no occasion must she bleed, please it must be avoided at all cost, she should consume more of fruits and vegetables"
Jeremy and myself continued to nod to his instructions.. I missed vodka sha, all the plans I had for her had to go on hold for now, I just miss the wahala, I had not even set eyes on her for a week now, only God knows what she is planning..
"When is David coming to sign the papers?"
The doctor questioned..and for some unknown reasons, my heart missed again
"Bukky calm down, its not David"
I assured myself and breathe down to ease myself..
"He would be taking the first flight tomorrow"
We went on to madam Clara, the woman was weak and it scared me somehow, she signed the documents for the chemotherapy, I could see she had desire to live for her two boys, and I was happy for that..
The next day came, I just don't know why Jeremy insisted I followed him to the airport.. My dear readers, I wasn't there, and I was there, in other words my spirit had gone to the spirit land once again..I was just trying to calm myself and put up a smile each time Jeremy asks if am ok..
And it was confirmed..the figure walking towards both of us was indeed the one I recognized. I tried to faint but I couldn't. It was David! My David!..now my story begins

What happens next?..find out in "Caught in the moment"
Season 2
