Latest Gists In Nigeria-Entertainment And Stories

We all stared at the
gorgeously dressed woman who obviously has had a taste of luxury.

She reeked of wealth from head to toe.
She looked vaguely
familiar in a strange way but I could not remember ever seeing her. I
wondered where I
must have seen her but
nothing came to

I stared at Richard
who was busy glaring at the visitor clenching his fists like someone in a
boxing competition. Why he was so angry was lost on me, he had never
been this furious.

No one uttered a word and I stood there not knowing what exactly was amiss.

"I asked you a

What the hell are you doing
here?" Richard growled
with his fists clenched.

I grabbed his hand to calm him down a bit.
"Calm down honey and
show the
woman some respect
please. Who is she?"
I asked quietly but he did
not answer. He did not have to anyways. He was
only this angry whenever he talked
about one person. I looked the woman and got my confirmation – the blue
eyes could not be mistaken.

Those piercing blue eyes
which could do a lot
of things by just staring were exactly the same as

I looked from Richard to the woman and back noticing the striking

"Richy, is this your
mother?" I asked quietly.

Richard's hand immediately left mine as he turned his
glare towards me.

"She is not MY mother" he
said stressing the 'my'.
I got my confirmation in
that statement. The subject matter just stood
there speechless and could have
been mistaken for a deaf
and dumb.

Richard looked at his father knowing that this
was his doing.

"I don't know
whatshe is doing here
and I don't want to know
but one thing I know is that I don't
wanna see her here
when I
get back", he said
and stormed out of the
room towards the

The entire room was as
though no one was
inside as no one made a
single sound. I don't know why I
did not stop Richard
from leaving the room
but I guess my professional instinct made me realize
that he needed a
little time
to himself.

I felt his pain and
knew just what he
must be
feeling as I had felt
that way too. I raised my eyes to stare at my newly
found mother-in-law but
she seemed to be in tears.

Her voice shattered the silence in the room. "I told you James. He
would never forgive me and he has a
right not to. I was so callous and wicked to him",
said obviously to Mr.
Branson as tears
rolled down her cheeks.

Everyone started
murmuring one thing or
the other while I
wondered what Richard would be
doing inside the

should leave now",
mother-in-law said
made to leave but Richard's
dad stopped her.
"Wait, let me talk to
him first", he said.

I startled, "No… I mean…
why don't you allow
me do the talking sir,
although I cannot promise anything
for now", I said

Everyone in the room
nodded in agreement and I was instantly
grateful that we did not include strangers in the
ceremony. For the very first time,
Richard's mum
looked at me and said,

"You must be his wife. You are very pretty
and I am sorry for
disrupting your

Please forgive me". Her
foreign assent was
undeniable. I
nodded and
made for the room. **********
"Don't you think this
skirt is too short Oyin",
Ronke asked her friend.
Oyinade smiled
mischievously. "Nope, I
don't think so.
Besides, you
know my ultimate
don't you? A hot body like
mine and sexy
would help me
achieve my
aim". Ronke rolled her
eyes in
exasperation. "I
know your
plans as much as
you do girl and I am with
you all
the way. You know
popular slogan says,
'when you see what you
want, go
for it doing
everything you
can to get it'. But my
friend, you have to apply
sense. You have just
given the job so it
would be risky and out of
place for
you to get a query
on your
first day at work.
You worked very hard to
this job, you cannot
everything away by
being overzealous", Ronke

"You have to carry
out this plan slowly,
portraying the highest level of innocence
you can. You should
be coy and sneaky, slow
and steady; with time
you would get rid of the
hindrance and be in
his arms". She finished.

Oyinade assimilated
everything she heard and
smiled. "You are a clever
snake babe. I would
make you my chief adviser on this
life project so you have to
be with me all the
way", she
said dropping the
skirt on
the bed. She picked her
letter for the
time and whispered
to herself. "You would be mine
very soon. All mine".
I stepped into the
room and met Richard
roaming from
one end of the room
to the
other. He was trying
as much as he could to
his anger but it was
working. He noticed
my entrance but
"Can you imagine?
actually had the guts to
show her face here
like she
has the rights to", he
still pacing. I sat down at the
edge of
the bed and looked
at him.

"Did you see her
face? She looked so sure of herself.

What did she think?
That I
would jump into her
arms, welcome her and
treat her
like she is the most
precious person on
She must be delusional". He
continued not even
for a reply to his
questions; not like there
could be any answer
though. When I did
not say
anything, he
stopped and stared at me.
"Would you
not say something?"
I sighed, stood up,
took his
hands and pulled him with
me to the bed. He
sat down
at the edge of the
bed and I
knelt behind him on the
bed, placed my
hands on
his shoulders and
massaged them. "Massage is not
what I n…"
"Shhhh…" I said
him and continued
my massage. Gently, I
felt the
anger and tension
ease out
of him and he
started relaxing. "I need you to
calm down and
relax honey.
Today ought to be a
day for us, remember? I am
just seeing your
mother for
the first time and it
something to me", I said as
I continued my
"She is not my
mother" he
said calmly. I left his shoulders,
round him and went
to seat
on his laps. "Honey,
whether you like it
or not,
you have her blood
in your veins. Do you know
what it was like to
find out
that my father never
wanted me? He
wanted me to be flushed out. I
know it
hurts but please
forgive her.
Keeping this grudge
in you would hurt you
everyday but
releasing it
and forgiving her
would make you happy.
Accept it.
Deep down in your
you know you need
your biological mother", I
said as
softly as I could.
He shook his head, "no, I
don't need her. I
have you
to be my mother,
sister and everything".
I nodded. "Yes, but
need her. Please,
her", I said going down on
my knees. He tried
to pull
me up but I did not
get up.
"Yes?" I asked with a faint
He stared at me,
shaking his
head unbelievably. "What
have you done to
Alright, would you
get up
now?" he said and pulled
me into his arms.
He kissed my
forehead and
hugged me. "I love
you heart, even though
you are
naughty", he said
with a
I smiled back, "well, I am
happy she is your
mother if
not you would not
eyes as beautiful as this".
He scoffed, "I could
charm you with the
generally possessed
black eyes, you know?"
"You don't have to
me; you were made
very potent charm". He laughed.
"Alright baby, lets
go and
get this over with"
he said
and we both went back to
the sitting room. On
there, Richard's
mum was
nowhere to be found.
"She just left, we
could not
stop her" Prisca
Richard looked at me. "Do
you see? She is not here.
She is no longer
around and she never was". He said and stormed out of the house.
