My Life At Thirty – Season 1 Episode 9

episode 9*******
Daniel thought he was just
dreaming when he saw the
call. Would Nora really call his
mobile phone? He wondered
as he reached for it slowly and
stared at it continuously. This
is a lie! He had muttered as he
stared at it, wondering if he
was really seeing what was
right or that as just an illusion.
The call ended when he was
in absolute shock and couldn’t
pick it due to his doubts. He
just put the phone on his laps
and swooshed out a long
breath from his nostrils,
narrowing his eyes and
wondering what was going
on. Mhen! I should have
picked up that call! Why am I
being stupid? He hit himself
suddenly, forgetting Martins
and Stephanie were on seat.
He just became conscious
of himself again and adjusted.
“I’m sorry, was just having..”
and his mobile phone buzzed
He got it quickly to check if
it was Nora and she really was
the one again. He smiled and
stroke his beard. “Nora even
loves me, why has she been
pretending…” he muttered
with a grin only to be shocked
as Stephanie grabbed the
mobile phone from him and
picked up the call.
“What!” He hastened to his
feet in quest of getting his
mobile phone quickly. What on
earth would Nora think of
then a lady picks up the call
again? At least she had mixed
with Daniel’s sisters very well
and would decode the voice
on the mobile phone, if it was
really any of his sisters.
“Are you alright? Let me
have that!” He screamed.
“No..” Steph rushed inside
the room.
“Hello.” She said to Nora.
Nora who was expecting
herself to hear Daniel’s voice
froze as she heard the female
voice. She already knew it was
none of his sisters, who could
the lady be?
She tried to get off the
feeling, thinking it might be a
close friend who wished to
speak to his wife. She smiled
and cleared her throat as she
replied. “Yeah, good evening.”
She said fluently.
“I don’t think anything is
good about this evening, lady.
Why do you keep disturbing
him when he’s not ready to
pick up your call? Please get
off the line.” She said and
ended the call.
To Stephanie, she was
wondering if someone was
disturbing Daniel already. On
setting her eyes on him as he
got into her house, she had
already liked him so much that
she felt she wouldn’t control
herself because of it.
On her seat, she had been
uncomfortable, thinking in
herself that who would be
disturbing her new crush? She
probably haven’t looked at him
well to see the ring in his
fourth finger and probably
didn’t check the caller to know
the mobile number wasn’t
saved with just ‘Nora’ but ‘My
She cloistered to the living
room, smiling and making
herself attractive again.
“Daniel, the lady won’t disturb
you again.” She said as she
handed his phone over to him.
“What? I think you’re mad
already! Are you out of your
mind? Have you seen this?” He
raised his hand to show off
his wedding ring.
“Wow! Though I haven’t
seen it, but, married men are
really the best because they
have handled courtship
“Steph! This is my own
friend for God’s sake, why are
you doing this? I never knew
you were this kind of person,
if I had known I wouldn’t have
brought my friend here at all!”
Martins hissed as he whisked
to his feet and tapped Daniel.
“Please, Dan. Let us go.” He
“Are you angry already? Or
wait, was it your wife that
called?” Stephanie quickly
“No! Who else? Why do you
keep asking useless
questions? I’m sorry I have
been disturbing you, but let
me yearn you, today will be
the last day I’ll visit you!”
Martins exclaimed.
Stephanie chuckled. “That’s
exactly what I want, Martins. I
have told you earlier, your
friend is all I need.” She
Daniel just looked at her
angrily and walked out of the
house as he quickly dried the
tear that had filled his eyes
already. He didn’t even wait for
Martins before he got into his
car and started driving away.

I marched on to the room
immediately after the call,
crying profusely. I never
thought this would happen to
me, I never knew Daniel has
been so desperate not to talk
to me that she even gave a
w—e the mobile phone to
speak to me.
Why’s he going after a
w—e when I am inside the
house already? Why is he after
another woman when I am
married to him already! Or
was that the lady we saw that
day? No! Daniel has gotten his
way to find this lady, right?
He’s spitting me with her,
Oh no! I rolled on the
mattress, crying out
uncontrollably. I was already
out of the universe with my
thoughts. At first, it looked like
a pipe dream, but it’s now
developing into the reality!
Don’t tell me Daniel has been
looking for that woman again,
so I’m the useless one, right?
If this is not true, why
hasn’t he called back? Why
hasn’t he called to explain the
situation of things to me? I
definitely know he wouldn’t
like me anymore, not when he
met the lady already. I was
only trying to summon
courage to at least speak to
him when I don’t know his
I was down, thinking that
he might have been trying to
talk to me too and maybe he’s
been facing the same
challenge I’m into, but now I
really know Daniel has been
avoiding me and all the dishes
I have prepared because of a
In everything we are doing,
there is God.

Gloria was getting
frustrated of Alex. Why would
someone doubt God in that
manner? He didn’t believe in
his existence, not even to an
inch! She had been thinking of
what she could use to
convince him but not even an
idea was forthcoming.
She hissed and just picked
up her bag. “If Alex is an
atheist, I better break up with
him now. I can’t marry a
person who doesn’t believe in
God.” She said and walked out
of the house, going to meet
She had been praying to
God to show himself to the
great Alex as Alex as said. She
knew it’s only if God proofs his
existence that an unbeliever
would believe him completely.
She had been trying to hold
herself back because he would
just say that she has done that
just because of Daniel.
She even wished she could
see Daniel again. She wished
everything that happened
didn’t happen to them. How
sweet would it have been?
She darted out.
