ECHOES OF THE PAST (Season 1,Episode 4)

Meanwhile, inside the car, Rex was itching to hear
Gavin speak and tell him how the second meeting
with Beryl went but it seemed Gavin wasn't ready to
talk as his focus was on the car steering wheel, so
he decided to do something.

''Mehn!, that girl is alluring. Her eyes are so full of
love and unspeakable desires, I think I like her,'' Rex
smiled and paused to see Gavin's reaction but
Gavin only pretended not to hear him.

''Guy!, I'll put you for one corner o, why aren't you
saying anything?''
Gavin smiled in a way that showed only his upper
teeth and glanced at Rex, only to find him staring at
him with a look to kill but that only made him burst
into laughter.
''This isn't funny at all. Tell me what transpired
between you both,'' Rex pleaded.

''And why should I tell you?''
''Because we planned it together nah.''


''Of course.''

Gavin chuckled. ''It worked. I'm sure she'll be more
than confused right now.''
''Wow! We really pulled a fast one on her. So tell
me, Are you in love with her?'' Rex wanted to know.
Gavin sighed deeply before smiling again.
''Gbam! I said it. I just knew it,'' Rex screamed
excitedly. ''But I don't think that girl is capable of
love,'' he added sadly.
''Don't worry, I'll get her,'' Gavin said hopefully.
''Let's stop by and pop some bottles.''

''Nope, evening will be better, 6pm or so.''
''You're right,'' Gavin concurred. ''To the house then.''
''Yea sure, lover boy,'' Rex teased and they

By now, Mrs Laura Scott had cried to the extent that
her voice had become hoarse. She turned around
and noticed Cheryl had left the room, so she lazily
dragged herself up from the bed and shuffled
downstairs where she met Cheryl already dressed
for school.

''Mom?'' Cheryl called and stood up.
''The trouser is nice but I think the top is too
transparent.'' The mother complained and sat on
the couch.

''Mom, I need five hundred naira to enable me pay
my way to school,'' Cheryl said instead thus
ignoring her mother's comment about the cloth she

''Go take it from my blue purse. It's on the dressing
table in my room.''
''Thanks mom,'' Cheryl smiled and ran upstairs.

Seconds later, she returned and picked up her black
handbag. She wore a blue jean trouser and a loose
yellow fitting chiffon top.
''I still insist that you change that top and put on
''Mom!'' Cheryl interrupted. ''There's nothing wrong
with this top nah. Anyways, got to go.'' She smiled
cheerfully and kissed her mom goodbye…

Beryl suddenly became restless after she had
walked back into her office. As she sat behind her
desk, she was so confused on what to do.
''Rose,'' She called while Rose, her secretary came
running into her office.
''Yes ma,'' Rose replied, wondering what had come
over her coz the Miss Beryl she knew never called
someone with her voice but always used the
''What do you know about the two young men that
came here?''
''Two young men?'' Rose questioned, looking around
in a way confused manner.
''You mean…'' Beryl started to say but paused and
stared at Rose. ''Call me Nora.''
''Okay ma,'' Rose said and courtseyed a little before
turning and walking out of the office.

After Rose had left, Beryl picked up her phone and
dailed the number on the complementary card but
unfortunately, the call wasn't answered.
''Excuse me ma, you called me,'' Nora, the
receptionist said with her hands folded behind her
''What are you doing here?'' Beryl asked with her
eyes still glued to her phone screen.
''You sent for me, ma?''
''I did?'' Beryl raised her head to look at her.
''Yes,'' Nora answered, looking worried.

''Get back to work,'' Beryl said and placed the
phone on her left ear. Nora made to leave but she
called her back. ''Don't restrict anyone that is here
to see me from coming into my office.''
''But ma…,'' Nora began but the look on Beryl's face
made her swallow her statement and walk out of
the office…
Gavin had decided to spend some time with Rex at
his apartment after the second meeting with Beryl
but a call from his mother asking him to get back
home immediately cut short the good time he was
having with Rex.

On getting home, he walked into the sitting room to
meet his mom discussing with one hell of a girl
who was dressed indecently and looked more or
less like a prostitute. Gavin disdained the girl as he
moved over to greet his mom.
''Welcome honey, We've been expecting you,'' Mrs
Edna Lewis said as she hugged him briefly and
patted his back.
Gavin stood erect and put his hands into his trouser
pocket. ''We?'' he asked, his placid eyes darting
from the girl to his mom.
''Oh yes,'' the mother smiled. ''Meet Ethel, daughter
of Mr Barry, the state commissioner of police,'' She
''Hi handsome,'' Ethel stood up and smiled
seductively, then stretched forth her right hand for a
shake. ''Nice to meet you, Gavin.''
Gavin removed his hands from his trouser pocket
and accepted the stretched hands with a forced
smiled. ''Nice meeting you too,'' he said dryly and
removed his hand from her hold. He perfectly
understood where his mom was driving at but was
he ready for that?

''Where's dad?'' he turned to his mom and asked
while Ethel sat back on the couch.
''He went out minutes ago, though he looked
worried about something. Any problem?'' The mom
asked with concern written all over her face.

''Not at all, mom,'' Gavin answered and started
walking towards the stairs.
''Gavin?'' his mom called as he was about climbing
the stairs.
''Mom,'' he stopped and turned back.
''Change up quickly and come downstairs
''Why mom?''

''You will soon find out.''
''Okay,'' he said and began climbing the stairs. ''But
it better not be what I'm thinking.''
The mother looked baffled, ''What are you thinking?''
She wanted to know.
''You will soon find out too,'' he chuckled and ran
up the stairs.

''I just hope mom isn't planning to start up
something crazy,'' Gavin thought to himself as he
sat on the edge of his bed and brought out his
phone. ''Wow! Five missed calls from a strange
number,'' he exclaimed and dailed the number
again. ''I forgot I had silenced this phone,'' he
hissed as the person picked the call at first ring.
He cleared his throat and placed the phone on his
right ear, then put his left hand in his trouser
pocket. ''Hello,'' Gavin Lewis on the line, may I
know who I'm speaking with, please?'' he said into
the phone, sounding official.
''Yea, I know it's Gavin,'' A female voice sounded at
the other end.
''Who am I speaking with please?'' he asked again.
''Beryl speaking.''

''What!'' he exclaimed in surprise and took a few
seconds to look at phone and then glance round his
room just to make sure he wasn't dreaming.
Although he had expected Beryl's call, it still took
him by surprise…
