Eliza respired a relieve with a fastidious look on her face immediately the caller’s voice wapted out through her phone. She had unmistakeably discerned the caller’s voice with a good clue of how he could get her number. Her mother.
“How did you get my number”? She voiced out, with a stabled, relaxed tone. Deliberately sounding quizzed and waving his greetings aside.
“Calm down Eliza, you should have at least responded to my greeting, before ..”
“Hey! Hold the bull craps and answer my question!” Eliza found her mouth spewing those abrasive words. nevertheless, that is what she needed to do, and even exactly what Tunde deserved. She thought.

She neva prayed to have the deja vu.
Nonetheless, she has her decision to make, the ball is in her court and she is ready to play it wherever she wishes.
She promised to cut anything that may arouse any form mutual impropriety between them. She will not leave any loopholes. She thought.
“So is that himmm , mean Tunde”? Dami asked with quizzical expression tapping Eliza out from her state of absorption.
“Ermm, baby it it tt is nothing okay” she stuttered out.
“Are you sure”?
“Yes dearie” Eliza affirmed, nodding her head.

“Yes sure” Eliza confirmed as they both stood up to take their leave.

As things started turning well between her and Dami, the strong *mother-daughter* affection between her and her mother became jaded.
