Omoye looked at her father who had been playing with Victor ever since he woke up. She could not help the smile of content and happiness that crept upon her face as son and grandson showed affection to each other.
Her phone vibrated, she picked it up to discover it was a message from the service provider, she deleted it immediately and saw the last message Osagie had sent her hours ago.
The urge to be in his arms increased dramatically. She had packed her bags, she decided she would wait for about two hours before leaving. Who would have thought things would end up this way?
She had spent time with her mum, reconciled with her father, met her playmate; something she had never planned to happen, she had a man who she loved and who loved her back, a beautiful son who called her mother.
What more was she looking for? She had been confused on how to tackle the issue with Osagie, but her mother had advised her to ask all she was dying to know. ‘Knowledge is power’ her mother had emphasised, if Omoye knew about the lady Osagie had dated in Lagos, it would be for the best rather than finding out later from someone else.
“Omo!” she turned towards her father who was smiling at her, “I called your name twice, you must have been thinking deeply.”
“Yes, what is it?” she asked while returning the smile.
“His name is Victor?” more of a confirmation rather than a question.
“Yes,” she replied.
Victor Snr. Smiled, so his daughter had named his grandson after him despite the fact that they had not been in good terms.
He saw the bags that were packed and kept by the corner of the bed,
“Did you just arrive today?” he asked.
“No, on the contrary I’m leaving today.”
He wore a frown, he was obviously expecting her to stay longer, he wanted to ask her about the father of her son but thought against it.
The important thing was that he had his daughter back.
Why was Tinu calling all of a sudden? Should she pick? They were just approaching the lagoon front and Ore was still in the dark about the issue, on the other hand if she did not pick, Ore would begin to worry himself to death.
Ore looked at Dami, he did not know who was calling and the conversations he heard gave no clue.
“Hello,” she paused.
“Yes, I’ll be free tomorrow.” she replied while nodding unconsciously
“Okay, alright bye.”
Dami ended the call and tried to hide the confused look on her face, why did Tinu want to see her suddenly claiming she had to explain things to her? First Evelyn wanted them to meet, now Tinu. Something was really up.
“What’s wrong?” Ore asked.
“Its part of what I’ll explain to you,” she sighed, she had failed to mask the confused look on her face.
“Okay,” he replied, at least they were almost approaching their destination, he would finally get to the bottom of this.
Evelyn unlocked her phone, so Dami was delaying in giving her a response despite the fact that she had used a polite approach.
No matter how stubborn she proved she was going to see her today. She had come this far and there was no way she was going to back down.
If Dami kept being stubborn she would involve her family, she knew Dami had never mentioned the scandals that happened in the past to her family.
She was sure of this because she had met her cousin Dare sometime ago and the dude had been calm, if he knew what she had done to Dami. He ought to have reacted, right?
She had arrived the University of Lagos about thirty minutes ago and was just waiting a bit before she switched to her attack mode.
If Dami did not reply her in the next one hour, she would call her. If she still proved stubborn, she would then pay her a surprise visit.
She had been able to get her room number and hall residence from someone who knew them back in secondary school, the game was in Dami’s hands now.
If she played rough she would bite her rough, if she played cool she would respond likewise.
She knew the University of Lagos surroundings, she once had a friend who lived in the staff quarters years ago. She had been sitting in front of the library for a while now but wanted to change location.
She did not like the signals she was getting from a guy standing some distance from her.
She cursed silently at him, who was he trying to impress?
She stood and walked to the Lagoon front, it would be better to get fresh air while waiting for her next line of action. She sat on an isolated portion and was replying the pings she had on her phone.
How long was she going to wait? She checked the time on her phone, she decided to give Dami thirty more minutes before calling the silly girl.
A couple approaching her direction caught her attention, she smiled, talk about being lucky.
She could swear that was Dami with a scrawny fellow, she shook her head, so of all guys in her school it was a guy like this she got.
She stood up and placed her hands in her jean pockets.
As far as she knew the game had just gotten interesting.
