When the celebration of the return of the prodigal son-Kelvin had died down, Kelvin whispered into my ears to meet him at the poolside.
Well, i was initially scared, i didn’t know if he was faking the change or if he had really changed but i late made up my mind and went into the cold night to meet him there.
”Becky, sorry for everything” He started saying when we sat down by the pool, i made sure i gripped the side of the pool firmly incase he was just pretending to change and wanted to push me into the pool, Kelvin was capable of anything.
”Kel, it’s all in the past now, i have forgiven you” i said to him.
”you know what, you are really special, all the girls i have been with, i have never felt anything for them but your case was different, i felt something i have never felt before since Jemimah’s death, am assuming Sam has already told you everything”
”yes he did, am sorry for your loss” i sympathised genuinely with him.
”it’s in the past also, i want to move on now”
”that’s good, so where have you been?” i asked.
”self discovery journey” he simply said.
”as in?” i asked confused.
”as in I went on a journey, trying to find my true self, the Kelvin that i was before, the Kelvin who never did drugs nor drank nor smoked nor womanized, nor slept with all his employ…”
”wait, wait, wait” I started coughing a fake cough.
”what” he asked me.
”all your employees, as in all, i mean everyone who works with you” i asked.
”yeah, all the models, i usually sleep with them before signing them”
I started coughing again when i remembered that we were more than thirty, including supermodels and amateur models.
”including Bella” I asked curiously, remembering how she usually carried herself like she owned the world.
”yeah, including Bella, i almost dated at a point, but her lavish lifestyle stopped me not that i don’t have the money”
”wow, am surprised”
”Don’t be, wasn’t it obvious, i take girls with zero talents, sleep with them and train them and make them models, so they can always worship me and do whatever I wish, i intend closing KISS agency, i have done too many bad things with it.”
”no, don’t, it has provided employment for some people” i said to him calmly.
”And it has also taken the virginity of some people, am closing it and i have decided, i will help the decent ones get decent jobs”
”if you say so, so where were you staying this past few days”
”I was with Pastor Kehinde, he was my pastor back then when i was little, he used to joke with me then that i would become an Evangelist when i grew up cos of how dedicated i was to the things of God and he was very nice and godly not all these money mongers we have this days, So when i saw how my lifestyle affected my mum, i was confused and i ran to him for help, i’ve been with him since that morning” he explained.
”how come you didn’t tell anyone” I asked.
”I did, Kola knew where i was, he was the one who told the gateman and house-workers to go on break”
”but he denied knowing anything about your whereabout” i said to him.
”I begged him not to tell anyone”
”that wasn’t fair, so what are your plans now” i asked.
”am going back to rehab and I will be a better person when i come out”
”am so happy for you, you made the right choice” i said and hugged him tightly
”Thanks Becky, and thanks for forgiving me” he said to me looking into my eyes after the hug.
”We all did things, we were not proud of, am not a saint Kelvin, stop thanking me” i said looking into his eyes.
”If you say so”
His lips came down on my when i least expected and the kiss lasted for awhile before he ended it.
I was happy that Kelvin had changed for good.
