I'm suspecting Fola
|Re: FEIRE - A Romance Story by Blesstar(f): 11:21pm On Aug 02|
It is certain now that it's Fola.
|Re: FEIRE - A Romance Story by Treasure17(m): 11:38pm On Aug 02|
I never for once liked Fola's desperation and his disingenuous display.
Thanks for the update Temitope.

No power since morning.. Gadgets dead.. Still waiting as well.
|Re: FEIRE - A Romance Story by Treasure17(m): 3:46pm On Aug 03|
TemitopeDaniel:Lol. I know for a fact. Even fola wasn't really mentioned until Feire moved to his radio station. Another reasonable suspect here is Uche.
|Re: FEIRE - A Romance Story by bossy512(f): 6:17pm On Aug 03|
I think is one of Desmond friend, thanks for the update
|Re: FEIRE - A Romance Story by Humbleness: 6:33pm On Aug 03|
I think it either Mosun or Subby. I don't want to believe it Fola, because no proof to back it up. Thanks for the updates.
|Re: FEIRE - A Romance Story by TemitopeDaniel(m): 11:37am On Aug 04|
Update drops in few hours' time!!

FEIRE - EPISODE NINETEEN
Feire noticed Fola’s countenance as she stood before him. She didn’t know if she should ask him what was wrong with him or who he talking to but she didn’t want to sound as though she was already doubting him just few minutes into the relationship.
“Won’t you ask me who called?” Fola threw at her.
She grinned. She didn’t know what to reply him with.
“It’s Kike.” He said as he glimpsed at his phone and back at Feire.
“Kike?” Feire was shocked.
“Yes. I don’t know why she is calling me. As I saw the mobile number, I knew she was the one calling me. I still know her number offhand.”
“What did she say?”
“I haven’t heard her out before I ended the call when I noticed you were coming behind me.”
Feire chuckled. “Why?”
“I was just scared so you wouldn’t think I still have contact with her.”
“What are you people discussing that you left me out?” They heard Stella interrupt them.
“You better chill. When the husband gets to know the wife, every love planner must step aside.”
Stella laughed. “It isn’t your fault.”
Feire scratched her head. “What can a newly married woman be calling you for? On her wedding night for that matter.”
“I don’t know.”
“Are you sure it is her mobile number?”
He nodded. “I am very sure.”
“Call her back.” She shrugged.
His eyes widened. “Call her back?”
Feire grinned again. “Let’s hear what she has to say.”
“Okay.” He punched some buttons on his phone.
** ** **
Flashback to the wedding…
Feire, Mosun, Stella and Fola already got a comfortable seat. They all came in with Mosun’s invitation and sat together. Feire raised her head from the pamphlet given to watch the groom and his men as they enter and she smiled. He didn’t see her, probably because his mind never told him at least once that Feire might have heard, not even after Kike told him that she already sealed the security and made sure whoever doesn’t have the invitation would not get in. He already forgot that Kike already gave the invitations in office and Mosun would have gotten one.
He stood by his decorated chair while Bayo stood behind him as the best man. As soon as that was concluded, Mosun stood up to excuse herself for a jiffy as her phone buzzed. She soon returned to her seat to watch the bride’s father and the bride walk in too. It was Kike, her boss. They were not all wrong after all.
“How did you get to know the lady?” Susan asked
“You know I told you I went to Kike’s office. As I was leaving the office that day she followed me and told me she wanted us to discuss. At first, I thought she was just one lady who was trying to shoot her shot at me or maybe she was trying to introduce me to some kind of business until we got inside my car outside and she told me her name was Mosun and she was working with Kike.”
Susan adjusted on the seat. “Interesting.”
“She said the guy Kike wanted to get married to, which she got married to today anyway that he is her best friend’s fiancé and he has been dating Kike while he kept her friend in the dark. She explained how this evil guy has been lying to his babe that he was working for Kike, not knowing that they were planning their wedding. She was the one who told me that I shouldn’t worry, she would slot her invitation out for me to scatter everything.”
Susan laughed. “Now this is serious, Uche. Like, I am not comprehending this at all. You mean the guy that was kidnapped has a babe also, then the friend works with Kike and she was the one who gave you the invitation?”
He nodded. “Yes. The plan was that I should come and disrupt the wedding.”
“But what is giving you the assurance that you are father of the baby?”
He shrugged. “I have been suspecting, Susan. You know I told you about all these things. How would Kike have such a wedding? And how many months after our breakup and she has gotten pregnant? Then from the way the lady…” He stopped abruptly, trying to remember Mosun’s name again.
“Mosun or what did you call her…”
“Yes. From the way we talked, it was obvious that this guy and Kike just met recently. I just know that she got pregnant and she doesn’t want me to know about it, thereby telling this guy to cover up for her.”
Susan shook her head. “I don’t think that is possible.”
“That is the only uncertainty that I have. How would a guy accept a pregnancy that is not his?”
“I feel the guy owns the baby, Uche. Because another thing you need to understand is that the more you fight for this baby that you aren’t sure if you are the father or not, the more they get to the truth that you raped her.”
He glared at her.
She chuckled and shrugged. “It is a bitter truth you also have to face, brother. You have your ugly part in this case also. You raped her!”
“Stop repeating it.”
“Truth is bitter.”
“Just let’s get out of here.”
** ** **
“Hello.” Fola said to the receiver.
“Is she the one?” Feire whispered and Fola nodded.
“Good evening.” Fola said. He didn’t know what to say to her.
“Good evening. I… I don’t know how to say what I called you for.”
“What is it?”
“I was shocked to see you today. How did you get to know about the wedding?”
Fola gazed at Feire, not knowing what to reply with. Feire threw her hands into the air.
“Er.. Don’t worry, that is personal.”
“So personal you can’t tell me? I am just amazed how you got the invitation to get in.”
“I know how to make my moves, Kike. I just came to wish you well.”
“And kidnap Desmond after, right?”
There was a short silence before Fola was able to digest what she meant. “I don’t understand.”
“Desmond is missing. He was kidnapped as we left that garden and my mind tells me you might have done this to retaliate.”
“He is missing?” Feire whispered again.
Fola nodded. “See, I don’t understand what you are saying, Kike. I just came to wish you well, I am even shocked that he is missing. How come?”
“Please, I am sorry for all I did to you, Fola. Can you just release him? Please.”
“I am serious. This sounds alien to me. I didn’t do anything, I don’t even know the guy.”
“Then tell me how you got the invitation.”
Feire waved at him not to disclose.
“I am sorry, the fellow who helped me out wish to be unknown. I don’t know about his disappearance, I am telling you the truth. I only came to see how you are doing after some years and wish you well. I didn’t come there for any ulterior motive, neither did I come to wreck any havoc. I don’t know anything about Desmond.”
Kike heaved a deep sigh and the call ended. Fola and Feire just kept staring at each other for some seconds, not knowing what to say.”

“Could it have been that her ex-boyfriend that did this?” Fola asked with deep concern.
“You guys have to go home now, it is getting too late and if you get stuck in this Lagos traffic, it wouldn’t be too good.” Feire told Fola.
Fola looked at his phone and back at Feire. “I don’t know what to say.”
“Me too.” She said silently. “I think you guys should go get some rest. We should see tomorrow, Fola keep me updated on the issue, please.”
Fola sighed. “Okay.”
** ** **
Kike turned on the mattress and memories the time spent with Fola rushed back to her head. They were best friends and he really cared about her. Sometimes she would wish she never left him to fall into the hands of the good for nothing Uche, but it was too late. She never deleted his contact even though he deleted her own, but never forgot her mobile number. That was the first time they would be talking since they left each other, Kike knew it couldn’t have been Fola. He wasn’t that type of fellow and wouldn’t have done something as grievous as that.
Her mind drawled back to where Fola sat down during the party to recall anyone who sat near him but she could only remember Stella. She felt at least the one who gave them invitation card or whose invitation card they used should be seated close to him but she couldn’t remember anything at that moment.
She heaved a sigh and her mind went back to Uche again. She imagined if the truth about the baby slips out, her father would never forgive her and he would deal with Desmond as well. She didn’t know much to do but she must conceal this truth till her last breath, she felt.
** ** **
“It can’t be any other fellow, Bayo. I am convinced that it is that lady.”
Bayo dropped his legs from the table before him. He was confused as he thought of who could have kidnapped his friend. He hit the table angrily and hissed. “What has this guy gotten himself into, what exactly?”
“Just calm down. This is not the time to be angry with that idiot, it is the time to find him before they do something bad to him.”
“Like killing him, right?”
Subby shrugged. “I don’t know. I am just saying I think the best thing to do right now is to look for the solution, not blame him. Would you call Kike again to ask her if there is any suspect?”
** ** **
Feire shut the door and walked to a seat quietly. She could see Mosun cleaning up the dining area. She already cleared the living room and appeared as though she was almost done with everything she was doing. Fola called her name as she looked around for her phone but didn’t know where she dropped it.
“I am coming, babes. What is happening?” She heard Mosun’s voice from the kitchen. She already took some things to the kitchen.
Mosun walked towards her in no time. “Kilo shele?” She asked what was wrong in yoruba.
“Don’t start this Yoruba thing this night.”
“You have stayed with me for how long? You understand the language, so don’t form like I just spoke nonsense.”
“Desmond is missing.” She announced.
Mosun’s eyes bulged. “He is missing? How? When?”
Feire shrugged. “I don’t know.” She explained how Kike called Fola to break the news.
Mosun sat down beside Feire. “Could it have been Uche?”
Feire looked at her. “You also feel the same right? Considering how he came to ruin the wedding today, I also feel he might be the one.”
“I actually told him to come and do what he did, Feire.” Mosun broke the news, turning her face away from making eye contact with Feire.
“I did. I was angry and that’s why I gave him the invitation card to come and just scatter the whole thing.”
“Why did you do that? You should have just left them to their own issue, Mosun. I actually don’t think it is the best thing to have done.”
“I did it for you. I was angry with them. But could it have been that Uche now planned a kidnap when he was thrown out of the party?”
Feire shrugged. “What else would it be?”
Mosun hissed. “This is painful.”
“Can you contact him again to ask him questions?”
Mosun held her hair tip bouncing on her shoulder. “What if he is not the one?”
“You better call him and ask. You better end what you have started.”
Mosun picked her phone and dropped it again. “Don’t let me lie, I am the one.” She spat.
Feire froze. “You?”
“I actually planned with my cousin to help me out and he did.” She replied.
“Mosun, are you okay?”
“Calm down, Feire. I just did it simply because I want him to open up. Like, I don’t mean to kill him or do anything, dear. I just want him to confess.”
“That the child is not his own! He can’t ruin you and be walking around happily. I only want him to confess to her family that he is not the father of the child in Kike and ruin all the nonsense they have called love.”
Feire sprung to her feet. “You are not serious, Mosun!”
She crossed her leg and she punched some buttons on her phone. “I knew you would act like this, that is why I never carried you along.”
“You can’t be serious. You are joking right?”
“I am not. Caleb did everything for me. I don’t know the guys he used, I just hinted him and he assured me he would get it covered.”
“That my cousin. See, never mind.”
“Mosun, please free him right now.”
“Just calm down!” She shouted at Feire. “Do you think I am wicked and heartless too? Is that what you feel? What benefit would it be for the child to come to this world and meet a wrong father? For someone who could do this to you, only God knows what he would do to the child that is not his own.” She dashed to her feet too.
“What is your business with that, babe? What is your business?”
“That is exactly what is causing problem in this world. That phrase of what is my business, or I have nothing to gain, or maybe all men are the same and they should be left to be like that, huh? I do not plan to kill Desmond, I do not plan to harm him at all, I just need him to promise that as he is leaving that place, he would go and confess that he is not the father of the child, that is all.”
“Okay. Can you get the men to free him then?”
“After we strike the deal, don’t worry.”
“So you are planning to let him see you, right?”
“No. I would just tell the right source to do everything and he would be freed.”
“Good. I will not tell anyone about it, not even Fola.”
“Better.” Mosun hissed.
** ** **
Mosun did as Feire told her to and it didn’t take time before the kidnappers got back to where they left Desmond. Everywhere was already dark and they didn’t want to take time before getting out of there and dropping him off the road. She had asked them to ask Desmond to confess if he was the father of the child in Kike and if he confesses, he must agree to go back to her parents and confess before he would be freed.
Desmond didn’t take time considering the pains he was going through, he confessed about the pregnancy immediately they asked him and agreed to the terms he was given. The guys called their master to tell him that Desmond had agreed while he called Mosun to inform him about the development and Desmond was taken inside the vehicle to drop him off the road without disclosing whoever was behind the kidnap.
They had threatened to kidnap him again and kill him if he wouldn’t go to her parents to confess his sins. Desmond still counted that as a better choice to being killed inside the place he was kept. As they dropped him and uncuffed his hands, it took some minutes before he was able to bring his hands forward and stand up from where he was. He removed the mask on him and found his way near the road to go to Kike’s place immediately.
** ** **
“But why do you think Desmond agree to a child that is not his own?” Feire asked, puzzled.
Mosun chuckled. “I don’t even know what to call him, dear. Could it be that he was even forced?”
“Forced? A full grown man that is forced to lie that he owns a pregnancy that he has no business with? I think that is not really possible, dear. I don’t think that is possible.”
“Or could it be that Kike promised him a great sum of money or something? I don’t want to imagine Kike having one jazz or charm that she used on him.”
Feire chuckled. “That is weird. It is not possible, please.”
“I am still in the dark, Mosun. I find it so hard to believe that Desmond could get married to another woman with the baby of another man who is alive perhaps for the sake of money.”
Mosun shrugged. “At least let us watch the drama as it unfolds. He is going to confess his sins tonight.”
“And might want to come back to me. You know what, I am going to be the suspect here.”
Mosun laughed. “Of course.”
“You are mad. I know nothing about all these and before him, he would think I did everything just to get him back.”
“At least by the time he comes back, he would find out that you have gone ahead with Fola.” She winked and stuck out her tongue.
“What if he doesn’t confess?”
Mosun lost words.
** ** **
The gatekeeper opened the gate immediately he heard it was Desmond. He helped him pay the bike rider who dropped him and helped him inside to the main door. It was very late and it seemed as if everyone had gone to bed already. He hit the door but there was no response. He kept hitting it as he sympathized with Desmond until he heard footsteps approaching the door and it was Kike’s father.
