The President's daughter episodic story




I met him outside leaning on his cool 4matic car.

Me: So… what is it you want to talk to me about?

Fred: I want to ask you for a favour, get in let’s go talk about it

We both sat on the back seat while two other guys were in the front of which one of them took the wheel.

Me: So how’d you get my number?

Fred: Cynthia… I asked her for it

Me: Okay…

We talked about other things till we got to the place. We alighted from the car and walked straight in.

Me: (While walking in) this is a night club

Fred: I know

Me: What are we doing here? It’s not open for customers at this time

Fred: It’s never closed for me (smiling)

Me: I see…

He took me to the VIP side and we sat down.

Fred: Care for champagne?

Me: A glass of wine will do

Fred: Have a taste?

Me: Yea… Pure Heavens

Fred: (To one of the guys he came with) go get us Pure Heavens

Me: You take it too?

Fred: Nope, too cheap for my taste. I just want to drink what you drink, to be polite

Me: Ok, can we talk now?

Fred: Yea let’s talk. The thing is… It got to my attention that you’re like a brother to Promise in school and you’re both close, am I right?

Me: She’s a good friend of mine

Fred: I know… reason why I asked that question. I like her and I want to date her but she’s not giving me any hopeful response. She always tells me ‘no’ on the spot whenever I try to talk to her without a second thought. Why is she like that? And I’m sure she doesn’t have a boyfriend in school; I dunno about where she came from, or is she engaged back home?

**The guy came with the wine and served us**

Me: Well… she never mentioned being engaged to me, so I don’t think that’s the case. You know… she has always being like that; we’ve tried to talk to her about her single state but she doesn’t want to be in a relationship.

Fred: Have you tried to hook her up with a guy before?

Me: Nope **sips**

Fred: Good… please do that for me

Me: **Speechless**

Fred: I really do like her right from the very first night I met her; I’m loving her like crazy. You’ve got to help me out man

Me: She’s a very good friend of mine as you know; she has been Ok with her singleness. I wouldn’t want her to get involved with the wrong guy that’d make her sad or hurt her; she’s a good girl that deserves a better man. So if I’m going to help you win her, you will have to promise me you’ll never hurt her.

Fred: You have nothing to worry about; I shall give her everything she wants on this earth and I mean it

Me: That’s good to know… but before I’ll say I’m going to help you, I will need to know who I’m helping in getting my friend

Fred: No problem, you can ask me whatever you want to know about me

Me: Okay…

I threw some questions at him and his responses were good. According to him… he studied business in the U.K; he loves being a businessman and has no interest in being a politician like his Father. He talked about his likes and dislikes and said funny things. I think Promise will love this guy if she gives him a chance.

**My phone rings and I picked up**

Me: Sweetheart

Mirabel: Where are you?

Me: I’m still with Fred, what’s up?

Mirabel: Are you coming back to the lodge?

Me: I don’t think so, it’s already getting late, I will go to the apartment from here

Mirabel: What about your car?

Me: Oh…

Fred: Don’t worry; I’ll give you a ride

Me: He’ll give me a ride

Mirabel: Why can’t you just come?

Me: Baby….

Mirabel: Fine! Better look after yourself, Marcus is still out there

Me: I will be fine dear

Mirabel: You better be

Me: Please come over tomorrow with my car

Mirabel: Ok

Me: Goodnight, love you…

Mirabel: **Hangs up**

Me: **She just hangs up? What’s up with her? **

Fred and I continued talking until I told him I’ll try to talk to Promise. He thanked me before we rounded up and drove me to my apartment based on my directives.

I talked to Mirabel later that night on phone about Fred and his intentions towards Promise; we agreed to get them together within the two weeks we got left in School.

We started talking to Promise and the intentions of Fred towards her. We gave tips to Fred on what to do and when to show up. We continued to pressure her non-stop until she finally accepted to give him a chance nine days later. We celebrated it thinking we did her a favour, not knowing we got her into a mess she never bargained for. Then I realized that, we should’ve respected her decision.

Marcus never stopped sending me “Please Call Me” messages during those nine days and I kept on ignoring him until he called me himself and I picked up.

Me: Hello

Marcus: Hello man you said you were gonna’ help me; I’m totally broke mahn… please!

Me: Why did you ask me to meet up with you?

Marcus: Because that’s the only way for me to get the money, I can’t go to your house

Me: Nothing has ever gone well whenever I meet with you

Marcus: But that’s the only way

Me: Don’t you have a bank account?

Marcus: Screw that mahn; my Dad got it frozen

Me: Sorry I can’t meet you

Marcus: You still don’t believe me, do you? I can’t do nothing to you mahn. I already bow

Me: I’ll think about something and get back to you

Marcus: Oh mehn…

Me: Alright come to my apartment tonight

Marcus: Really?

Me: Wait I’m not done talking. You’re not coming in; just outside the gate where I’ll leave the money in a corner for you to pick up and go. And you must be very careful; I dunno what will happen to you if you’re spotted

Marcus: Why? What’s wrong?

Me: Just follow what I say and you won’t get into trouble

Marcus: Ok no problem… time?

Me: From

Marcus: Alright mahn… I trust you

Me: Wish I could say the same to you

Marcus: No I understand, trust is earned… I get it

Me: Alright **hangs up**

I don’t even know how much I’m going to give him, and I can’t tell Mirabel about it. I thought about it then decided to give him ₦250,000. I can’t believe I’m going to do this, giving money to Marcus? So awkward!

I dashed to the bank later in the evening and made some withdrawals; I kept it somewhere in a corner outside my gate when it got dark, then I texted him how to find it.

The following morning, I went out to check the money, but it wasn’t there; He must have taken it. I tried to call him to confirm if he took it but his number didn’t go through after several trials. He took it without thanking me? Well… I just hope he has left for good.

Two more exam papers remaining for us to write. We kept on reading and working to get good grades. That Fred of a guy kept showering Promise with love and gifts. To us, he is madly in love with her and we think he is a good guy suitable for Promise.

After finishing the second to the last paper on Monday, I hanged out one on one with Promise to discuss about her relationship with Fred.

Me: So… how is your relationship going with Fred?

Promise: Fine, he is loving, caring and always want to be seeing me

Me: Hhmmm… I can see you’ve found what you want in a man

Promise: Well… I’m beginning to like him

Me: And love?

Promise: Not sure about that yet

Me: He loves you dearly, you should love him too. He is making good use of the chance you gave him

Promise: (Staring at me somehow) why are you doing this?

Me: I want you to be happy and feel loved

Promise: Is that how love should be?

Me: What are you saying again? This guy is ready to love you

Promise: Agreed but what about me?

Me: Love him too

Promise: (Small tears in her eyes) Okay… I’ll try, besides I’m not getting younger, I should move on

Me: Yea! That’s the spirit!! (Holding her)

Fred: Hey guys

Me: (I took my hand off Promise) Hey…

Fred: Mind if I have her? Been looking for her, I miss her so much **smiling**

Me: Sure! She’s all yours (I saw Promise blushing)

Fred: Let’s go **holding Promise**

We met the others then zoomed out from School anticipating for our final paper in two days’ time. After we parted our ways that day, we didn’t see each other till the final exam day; I didn’t go to the lodge because I want to study and work on the website and Mirabel on the other hand didn’t come to my apartment so she’ll prepare very well for the final paper. I tried Marcus’ line but it didn’t go through, so I stop trying.

The day came; I went to school feeling well-prepared to pieces the exam and to see my lovely fiancée who I miss so much. I was in School before them; when they came, I noticed some bruises on Promise and I asked her immediately I saw it but after I have already spoken with Mirabel.

Me: (Close to her) what happened to you?

Promise: I fell from a bike

Me: Which bike?

Promise: Okada na

Me: When and how?

Promise: On Monday, later in the evening when I was returning back to the lodge

Me: Where did you even go to?

Promise: From Fred, I didn’t go straight to the lodge after we parted ways; he took me out for lunch

Me: Why didn’t he drop you after picking you up from school?

Promise: He couldn’t, he said something came up that he had to attend to

Me: Hhmmm… you have to be careful next time

Promise: Of course

I feel something wasn’t right, I couldn’t doubt her because I know she doesn’t tell lies; why would she even lie? I shunned my thoughts on that.

We all went to where we normally study together, did some revision before the commencement of the exam. During the exam, a guy almost got me into trouble. He was copying my work and I couldn’t hide it from him. A lady invigilator took me from my seat to another one, maybe she suspected something. And the guy foolishly followed me to where she took me to and sat behind me to continue copying my work. I didn’t know if I should laugh or get mad at him for the foolish act. The worst thing, she tried to stop him but he refused and insisted on coming to where I was seated. She had to take me to another seat at the back where there was no space for him to come and seat. I saw how the guy kept looking back in a pitiful way; I couldn’t help but laughed out a little, even the invigilator couldn’t help but also let out a smile. Good thing the wicked supervisors weren’t around that time.
