I see you guys are rooting for dele and tiny to get back.
As for me, it's either dele and seyi together or noone else.
Except they get new partners who we haven't met yet

Episode 40- Move on.
Demi Lovato - Tell me you love me
Rosanna slipped out the wad of cash the ATM had dispensed and pulled out her card from the slot. The machine beeped and the automated voice thanked her for her patronage. She slipped the money and card into her purse and turned to leave. She turned her head, looking down into her hand bag as she stuffed her purse in and searched for her phone.
She pressed the power button and the lockscreen shone brightly with the time and date in bold, white fonts.
She could still make it to the mall, pick up junk food for Seyifunmi and get back home on time.
She walked out of the ATM gallery and strolled towards the gate of the bank.
"Ro," someone shouted and she turned.
She saw a man sauntering towards her like she'd been the one who called him. The fair man looked familiar, but she couldn't place his face. Where did she know him from? And he'd called her Ro. Were they that informal with each other?
"Hi. How are you doing?" He said, smirking. "Wow! I never thought I'd see you again."
She frowned and said, "I'm not sure I remember you."
"I'm Joshua. We met at the movies when you walked smack into me." The guy said with a lopsided grin.
She smacked her forehead as she remembered.
The guy with the tattoos. She eyed him from his neatly brushed hair to his red, American Regent tie still perfectly straight to his blue shirt and his black slacks and his black, brogued oxfords.
So he could look responsible?
"Hi." She said with a smile.
What did he want?
"You still haven't forgiven me for being rude?"
"Why would she say that?" She said, frowning.
"Your smile was barely social. You aren't exactly happy to see me."
"Let me make it up to you. How about I give you a lift home?" He said and shoved his hands into his pockets.
"Don't bother. I'm still heading to the mall to grab some stuff for a friend."
No way was she getting in a car with him.
"Don't worry. I'll take you."
"It might not be on your way."
"Your mum tell you not to go anywhere with strangers." He jived.
She chuckled, "Maybe."
"I don't bite. Really. This is me trying to score points with a pretty girl."
What was the downside? She'd get a free ride to the mall, waste his time and ask him to leave without her.
He led her to his black SUV, and held the door open for her. She smiled her thanks and hopped in. He rounded the vehicle and joined her.
"So, where to?" He asked as he started the vehicle.
She gave him the name of the supermarket and he zoomed out of the bank's premises. They spent the first few minutes in silence that Rosanna found comforting. She didn't want to make small talk with him.
Unfortunately, he started it. He asked about her job, and he'd informed her that he was the branch manager of the bank she'd been to. He had gone on to talk about his friend, William. He told her William worked for an oil company. He'd gone on to ask her address. She gave him Ose's. She didn't want some weird guy showing up at her door. She already had her plate full with Ose and Femi. She didn't need extra.
He pulled up to the parking lot of the mall. And she'd hopped out without waiting for him. He followed her into the mall, and she couldn't help but feel suffocated. He trailed her like a shadow as she pushed her cart through aisles, picking up groceries, toiletries and junk food to help Seyifunmi grieve. She also added a load of tissues.
She tried to keep her responses clipped enough to hint she wasn't digging him. But the guy couldn't take a hint. He paid for her groceries, even after she'd fought him not to.
After that, he led her to the food court, insisting on giving her a treat.
If you want sex, you better think again.
"We'll have to make this short, so my ice cream doesn't melt." She told him as he ordered two chicken rolls and bottles of soft drink.
Seyifunmi wouldn't mind melted ice cream, but she didn't need to tell him.
"So, thanks for everything. You've really made it up to me." She said as he pulled out her chair.
They were still eating when he got a call and had to leave. She was more than relieved when she saw him exit the food court.
Seyifunmi groaned as light pierced through her eyelids. Ro was back. She rolled over and turned her back to the door. The clattering of keys reverberated in her head as the loud footsteps Ro took pounded her head.
"Ro, please." She groaned.
She heard the clack of the empty vodka bottle and the rustling of polythene bags.
"What the f*uck, Ro. Stop making noise." She whisper-yelled and pulled a throw pillow over her ears.
"Aladesuyi Seyifunmi, I've had enough. Get your f*ucking ass off that couch and start living again." Ro shouted, and her ear drums and brains threatened to burst.
Was this girl mad?
Seyifunmi sat up and squinted in the bright, fluorescent lit room.
"What life is left for me? Dele can't stand me. My mum asked me to never come home again. My heartbreak is trending all over Twitter and Instagram. I watched seven skits with a clip of me in it. What life do you want me to live?" She croaked at her cousin.
"You have your job. A job you're awesome at."
She'd lost the love of her life, and Ro was talking about a job.
"Ro, just leave me to mourn."
Rosanna shook her head and said, "Two years ago, you told me that a woman's life doesn't revolve around a man. Especially a man who breaks your heart."
Seyifunmi stood and shouted, "He didn't break my heart. I broke his. I ruined his relationship with his kids. If he hates me, I deserve it."
"Then move on." Rosanna gritted.
"I can't," she sobbed, shaking her head. "I still love him."
Rosanna sighed and bent to pick up the yellow ShopRite bags.
"Your two week leave of absence ends in four days. You better pick yourself up. You wear the money pants around here. If you lose your job, we'll go hungry."
Seyifunmi hissed and sat down. She reached for the remote and turned on the television.
Seyifunmi groaned in exasperation as Rosanna pulled her to the treadmill. She'd brought her to the gym. As if all the morning jogs weren't bad enough. Rosanna insisted she lose the weight she'd put on while mourning her relationship with Dele, so she could prove she'd moved on.
Exercise in futility.
She'd never be able to get over Dele. Which other man would give her wardrobe a facelift just because she'd gotten insulted by her colleague? Which other man would massage her tummy whenever she had cramps? Which other man would put up with her drama? Which other man would build a mansion just because he wanted to propose to her? Which other man would love her like Dele did? Which other man would know her body like Dele?
So, who was she moving on to?
She pulled off her sweatshirt, the one she'd nabbed from Délé's armoire. She sighed and jumped on the treadmill just to ease Rosanna's stink eye.
Her eyes flitted to Rosanna's ripped abdomen on display.
"If you want to get back to flat tummy gang, this is the way." Rosanna said and crossed her arms under her black sport bra.
"Work out and get him off your mind."
She sighed as Rosanna upped the speed. Rosanna's falcon eyes watched her as she jogged, and Seyifunmi wishe she'd get distracted, so she could reduce the speed.
"Ro!" Two guys called from behind her and Ros turned.
Thank you, Jesus.
She quickly tapped the button to reduce the speed.
"Hi." Rosanna's called in the extra cheery, sugary voice she used when she didn't like someone.
"Nice to see you again. I can't believe I forgot to collect your number," the buff, fair one with tattoos said.
Rosanna giggled and Seyifunmi smiled. She knew exactly what that giggle meant.
"By the way, you look great." The dark, taller, wiry one said, ogling Rosanna.
"I can say the same about you two. Meet my cousin, Seyifunmi." Rosanna said and turned to face her.
"Seyifunmi, meet William and Joshua." Rosanna said.
Seyifunmi smiled panting and the men nodded at her. They were obviously only interested in Ro.
She rolled her eyes, and tried to figure out a way to leave without Ro ending her conversation.
"Anyway, we were about leaving." Ro said.
Thank you, Jesus!
She stopped the machine and jumped off it. She bent to grab her face towel from her sweatshirt.
"Your number then." One of them said.
Seyifunmi patted her face dry as Rosanna reluctantly collected the guy's phone and typed in her number.
"I'll see you around." She said and picked up their gym bag.
Seyifunmi draped her sweatshirt in her arm as Rosanna led them away.
"Those guys creep me out." Ro whispered.
So far they'd caused their early departure she liked them.
Seyifunmi sighed as Rosanna linked arms with her and led them to the parking lot. Rosanna kept on jabbering about how stalked she felt. All she could think about was the voicenote her mother sent her. She'd been avoiding the woman's calls since she found out about the video.
Tears stung her eyes as she recalled her mother's words. Rosanna led them to her car, and she walked to the passenger side.
"Seyifunmi, please, can you smile for me? I hate seeing you like this." Rosanna whined.
Seyifunmi looked up from the concrete and gave her cousin her best attempt at a smile. Then, she saw him.
Her mouth went dry as he lugged a duffel bag out of his car trunk. The same gold Camry she'd run after. When did he change gyms?
Her heart raced as she pulled away from her car, slighting Rosanna's calls. Tears clouded her eyes as she broke into a sprint. She crossed the ten cars that separated them in a couple of heartbeats.
He was bent arranging his spare tyre and jack properly in his car.
"Dele," she breathed, totally unsure of his reaction.
He stood and turned to look at her. The shock in his eyes vanished as soon it appeared and he became stoic, the plain expressionless look his reserved for her.
He hissed and slammed his trunk shut.
"Dele, please." She sobbed, her tears freely flowing.
He groaned and said, "Seyifunmi, what do you want?"
Your forgiveness. Your love. For you to look at me the way you used to. For you to want me again.
"If you have any shame, you shouldn't be showing your face around me again." He snarled and placed the strap of his duffel bag on his shoulder.
"I don't need shame, Dele. I only need you. You make my life complete. Please." She sighed.
He raised his brow in doubt and then chuckled mirthlessly.
"Save the inspiring lines for your friend the writer. Really, I have no need for them." He said.
"What do I have to do to prove to you that I'm sorry?" She groaned as her heart shattered again.
"Seyifunmi, I really have no time for this."
He made to leave, and she sank to her knees.
"Dele, I'm sorry." She shouted.
He turned back to face her and his eyes widened in shock. People stopped to watch. She didn't care. She only needed his forgiveness.
She heard someone gasp behind her and then Rosanna pulled at her arm.
"Seyifunmi, get up."
She brushed her hand off. She stared back at him, hoping for absolution.
"Seyifunmi, stop this madness and get up." Dele said as he inched nearer to her.
"Seyifunmi, think what people will say." Rosanna said.
"I don't f*ucking care what people will say!" She shouted at Rosanna.
"Dele, please,forgive me." She sobbed.
She watched his jaw tick as he glanced around. The crowd that had gathered began to murmur.
"Oga, she don beg na."
"Wetin she do sef? Forgive her."
"Not every woman will get on her knees and beg."
Their comments grew louder and Dele gritted, "Seyifunmi, get the f*uck up."
"Not until you forgive me." She sobbed shaking her head.
He squeezed his eyes shut and sighed.
"Fine, I forgive you." He shouted so everyone could hear.
"For real?" She gasped.
He smiled and nodded.
"I forgive you."
He walked to her and raised her up. The crowd cheered and passed comments on how good it was he forgave her.
He smiled at her. A real smile. And she broke into more sobs.
"Shh. It's okay." He said as he pulled her into his chest and wrapped his arms around her.
"Dele, I'm really sorry."
"It's okay." He said rubbing his arms over her back. The fragrance of his body spray hit her nose. The familiar scents made her feel at home, and her sobs eased.
"I love you, Dele," she snivelled as she pulled away to look at his eyes.
He only smiled at her. He placed his hand on her arm and led her to his car. He opened the passenger door and all but pushed her inside. He gave her a smile before slamming the door shut.
She watched him tell Ro something and he entered the car and gave her the full brunt of his glare.
It was all an act.
"You have some nerve pulling the shit you just pulled." He gritted as he started his car and drove out of the gym's compound.
Her heart sank. He hadn't forgiven her.
"Dele, I'm sorry."
She chewed on her lips, hoping he'd forgive.
"So you think going viral and acting shameless will earn you my forgiveness?"
He'd seen the video too?
"Dele, I just love you so much. I can't live without you."
"And I can't live without my children." He fired back.
Her body shook with sobs.
"Dele, I will do anything for you to forgive me, to love me again." She wailed.
"Get me my children, then we can begin talking about forgiveness, because now I can't stand the mere sight of you."
Her tears fell faster as he pulled the car over.
She made to open her mouth.
"Spare any more BS and get the f*uck out."

Tinu and dele can't have a thing together!
They do best been just friends and co-parenting.
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by peacy26: 3:23pm On Sep 16|
If Dele and Tinu no work then no worries but Dele and someone else but Seyi. You can be in a relationship with someone for 5years and still part ways when u discover some negative traits in them.

You people have started again ba?
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by Josipov: 5:33pm On Sep 16|
Khriztarl:Birds of the same feathers
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by Oremeyii(f): 5:40pm On Sep 16|
I really don't think Dele and Tinu is still possible, what would be the use of Chris? And not only that, the TiDe ship sank long ago.
Dele's mother could still like and even love Seyi later in the future, everyone can admit that Elsa is superstitious sometimes
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by mychiveous(f): 7:58pm On Sep 16|
Dele and Seyifunmi were never going to last, she is too insecure and she always acts without thinking. She should have known what she was getting into when she agréed to date a man with an Ex wife and children.The children are Dele's. no go area (he doesn't want to be like his father who abandoned his child) and she crossed that the first time she called the daughter and "ill mannered witch" .
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by Adeola25(f): 8:38pm On Sep 16|
Thanks for the update ma'am

|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by peaonyx05(f): 9:34pm On Sep 16|
Dele should just go and look for another woman. Dele & Seyi is a no-no. Is it when Seyi poisons Dele because of her insecurities and jealousy that u will know the two ain't compatible. Just like Seyi's mum said, she should go and look for a non-divorcee
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by divinelypruned(f): 9:58pm On Sep 16|
Khriztarl:I have a feeling that you have a similar personality with seyi, for you to be routing for her this way, I won't want my brothers to end up with someone like seyi, because she can stab them once she is angry, Dele has many people in his life and the seyi I know don't want them, but herself alone with her own family.
Dele and Tinu can't work because Chris is still alive, Dele should go for another better woman not seyi.
If she happens to be my sister, I will advice her to learn from her mistakes and change for the next man she will meet.
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by Ann2012(f): 10:12pm On Sep 16|
Dele and Tinu is a no no for me!!!!
I love my Tris , Looking forward to their reunion
But Dele should try to forgive Seyifunmi, she has learnt the hard way and it’s enough to correct her senses.
Thanks for the update ma’am
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by Josipov: 10:20pm On Sep 16|
Nay!! I don't think she has a similar personality with Seyi, she's just so sympathetic towards her. She probably has the heart of Gold.
One day, I was in a market, I saw some people beating a thief mercilessly. The beaten thief was so wounded that I started feeling pity for him... so does that automatically proves that I have the same personality with him?
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by Khriztarl(f): 10:54pm On Sep 16|
divinelypruned:Wow, she doesn't even know me, but concluded i was just like seyi. Thank you very much ma, i read your post.
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by Shegzdave: 11:01pm On Sep 16|
Khriztarl:Who is Dele adopted father?
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by Khriztarl(f): 11:16pm On Sep 16|
Shegzdave:Huh i don't think i get you but dele's father is jola and his mum's present husband is Donald. I don't know if i should call him dele's adopted father, don't even think that's correct.
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by Khriztarl(f): 11:21pm On Sep 16|
Seyi, please go in search of Atinuke, she's even in danger, if any harm befalls her while she's at Abuja, it would be blamed on you.
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by Themmycruz: 2:29am On Sep 17|
I thought they traveled out of the country??
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by peacy26: 4:09am On Sep 17|
I ain't rooting for Dele and Tinu either but Dele and Seyi is a no_no jare
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by Shegzdave: 9:04am On Sep 17|
Khriztarl:Don't know if you remember the episode where Seyifunmi asked him where he got the Audi and Rolls-Royce? and the reply he gave to her was; He got it from his adopted father.
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by Khriztarl(f): 9:26am On Sep 17|
Themmycruz:That was what tinu asked the kids to tell dele. Actually, they are at their former house. Chris oduah's house.
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by Khriztarl(f): 9:27am On Sep 17|
Shegzdave:yes, his adopted father is Donald.
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by Shegzdave: 9:32am On Sep 17|
Khriztarl:Now I get it, thanks ma'am.
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by divinelypruned(f): 11:17am On Sep 17|
Khriztarl:No Donald is not his adopted father, in the first series a man helped him from his secondary school, but he is late
|Re: Ocean Of Secrets: The Flow (ocean Of Secrets Saga; Book 2) by GodShowmemercy(f): 12:48pm On Sep 17|
Khriztarl:ok. Pixedot on the run
