Fighting Back! – Season 1 – Episode 28

In no time, he came back and sat beside
Ethel.’Tell me pal, do you think it is okay for her
to be like that? ‘
He forgave him and gave him full attention. ‘I
don’t know. Maybe the ladies stuff. ‘
‘This is beyond ladies stuff.’ His look was
thoughtful.
Ethel raised his brows. ‘So what do think is
wrong with her?’
‘I wish I knew Ethel, I don’t know. I am worried. ‘
‘There is only one way to find out, go talk to her.’
Ethel suggested.
‘Go talk to her? ‘ He appeared unsure as he
stood.
‘Hahan! ‘ Ethel glared at him incredulously. ‘I
said you should go talk of her or you want me to
say it in Japanese? ‘
Osagie took few steps forward and turned to look
at Ethel. ‘Let us go together. ‘
Ethel burst into laughter as he stood.
With shaky hands, she wiped her tears. ‘Come
in.’
They entered with Osagie leading, just one look
at her confirmed him a genius.
‘Hester? ‘ He called concerned. He lift a chair
and place it close to her bed and sat down.
She looked down at her entwined palms.
‘Hess, what happened? What is wrong? ‘
Ethel sat at a distance and watched them.
She shook her head slowly.
‘Nothing? Come off it Hess, you can talk to me,
you know you can please. ‘
She closed her eyes briefly ‘No …nothing Osaz, I
am okay. ‘ Hester forced some conviction into
her voice but when she opened her eyes, her
tears came down in torrents.

Osagie brows creased in worry. ‘Darling, what is
it na, Why are you crying? ‘
‘No …no …I am not crying anymore. ‘ She
wiped her face.
Osagie reached into his pocket and gave her a
folded hanky.
‘Thank you.’ She accepted it.
He looked at her palms and took them in his.
‘Hester, hardly does anyone cry for nothing. I
am your friend, I care about you, Ethel is here
too because he care about you. If we can’t
profer a solution which I think is most unlikely,
when you talk and you share, you feel better. It
becomes easier. Darling please …’
‘Osaz, I am devastated, I …don’t know what to
think ,how to feel of this whole madness rocking
my entire life. ‘ She exhaled. ‘The pain and
betrayal my family have given me is so much
that I don’t know Where to start from. ‘ Her
tears trickled. ‘I have never know that … that
…’ She swallowed. ‘that Oladimeji from Adam
and all of a sudden, I am getting married to
him. A man who slapped me the second time I
was out with him because I wanted to know the
extent his father has contributed.
‘Geez! ‘ Ethel muttered before shaking his head.
He glanced at his friend. ‘That guy is
mannerless. ‘
‘Since nobody want to plea my case, I took it up
myself, I made it clear and plain to him and the
world. I wasn’t interested in the most important
aura he possessed.’ She paused momentarily.
‘I have been receiving threatening calls from
him- that he is going to have me back come
what may. I am pissed off, really and indeed, I
am. This whole thing is clouding my sense. I
don’t know what to think of, I don’t know what
to do …’ Hester sobered. ‘I …I couldn’t mourn
my best friend properly, I was still trying to get
back to my feet when this happened. Now, I am
in a foreign land and because I am unsure of
what I will get,I don’t want to …I am scared of
going back to my own country. ‘ She cried. ‘Oh
Osaz! I feel awful .’
