“goodness me! Mary what are you doing here?” i asked with a surprised expression, “you came home with her right?, she’s inside huh?” she asked like someone under the influence of an evil force, before trying to force her way in but i objected and blocked her. “what’s wrong with you huh?, why didn’t you at least call to inform me that you were coming?” i asked desperately. She scoffed and bit her lips.
“i called you on phone all night but you failed to answer. You were probably busy with her, now out of my way, i want to see her” she screamed furiously, launching at me like a tiger. I stood my ground and blocked her. “you are going nowhere besides we had an agreement remember” i said angrily, “and this is how you are keeping yours” she barked. I rubbed my face with my palms and scoffed.
“let her in dear. I want to talk to her” i suddenly heard Chioma say to me from behind. I was extremely shocked. “you heard her?, now out of the way” Mary screamed and forced her way into my apartment. I was left stunned and speechless. I was never prepared for such encounter.
Chioma smiled politely as Mary walked into the apartment like an angry landlady. I watched silently, my heart furiously pounding. “I know a lot about you. I know more than you can ever imagine. I have never been in support of how he has been treating you. I have to be sincere, so please calm down”
she addressed Mary with ease, leaving the old lady extremely stunned and alarmed. Mary froze for a while and studied her quietly. “and what’s he to you?, how do you get to know much about me?. Are you also in it just like Jboy huh. I need not tell you that Jboy was a good friend but a bad influence. It was unfortunate he ended the way he did and now you are trying to stick your nose in something i presume you have little knowledge on. Young girl better run along” she scolded Chioma with intense anger. The poor girl drew back with fear before quickly regaining herself. “don’t disrespect Jboy or use his death to your advantage unless you are trying to tell me you have a hand in it. I can’t be scared of a bitter woman” she cried, “you can assume whatever you want. I have fasted and prayed ceaselessly for a husband. God answered by providing Ken, every obstacle that tries to prevent it from happening will be destroyed by he who answered my prayers. You can stick your neck and dare me. I have warned you. I can bet my life that i met him before you did, i have nothing else to say” she warned and turned to leave while Chioma surprisingly ran after her forcing me to act fast and prevent her from attacking Mary.
“we are engaged. Our marriage will be coming up soon” she yelled at Mary who froze for a second, gave us a weird look before leaving my apartment. Chioma broke into a loud cry as soon as she left.
