The Mystery Of Love
Mrs Williams Pov.
After my warning to him, I dial a number on my phone, it was Jigaa, the guy in charge of Linda’s Mom, where are you i asked, as usual he replied, how is she now, I asked him, I think she’s feeling better now, jigaa had called me two days time to report about her condition, she told me she was not feeling okay, but then i don’t care, all i want is the best for my family, if she had treated her daughter very well, she will not have caused her this troubles. I’m coming to talk to you i said before the line got disconnected.
Some minutes later, I was at the compound, everywhere seems to be smoking. I tried caution one of the guy that that kept smoking into my eyes, I’m sorry ma, he apologized. Where is your boss i asked him, he’s inside ma, he replied. I went inside to meet him, it was a dark building, everywhere seems to be dark, jigaa, I called his name, I’m here madam he replied from a far distance to me. That’s where the woman must have been, though i only gave him the assignment to get the woman but at least i should see the woman myself. I went inside the room, the room was silent that one could hear the sound of a pin if it dropped from the room, the room was dark for my likely, though there was a lamp in the room but one could hardly see eachother. Welcome ma, he greeted as i went inside the room. So how’s she, I want to see her I said. She’s here ma, he replied me. Good immediately light came into the room, jigaa must have on the light from the wall. Now we can see eachother clearly, I looked at her but her head was down, she was not looking at me, hey you. I said to a woman of her 50th maybe, though despite the fact that she wasn’t raising her head, but it seems like i have seen her before, raise up your head I ordered her, she raised her head then i saw her clearly, Clara. Yeah she’s the one.
Clara was my school mate while we’re in secondary school, yeah, she’s brilliant and very well known for her brilliant and sharp memory. It happens that the senior prefect of the school then was my crush and he has been the guy that i have always been dreaming of, but he wasn’t giving me his attention, rather given it to Clara, I have seduces him so many times but he wasn’t going to look at me. So i told Clara to help me talked to him maybe she can use her influence as the brilliant girl in that school to help me talk to him so i can also get my own desires. Yeah she told me she will, later that day she told me that he wasn’t responding fine about it means he didn’t like me, I got hurt, how can he not like me after I had given him my heart, some weeks later, I was on my way to market, My Mom sent me on an errand to buy some food stuff, but due to the weather, I decided to trek a bit before taking a cab. I got to a junction when i saw Clara and Harmony the senior prefect together they were talking and laughing together while they walked. I was feeling jealous of her, really so Clara has been going out with Harmony, after i told her about my feelings for him, so Clara could go ahead to seduce him, I’m going to make her pay for what she did, I said as i hide myself from then not to notice me, that day was a bad day for me, it was like hell, but Clara will regret what she did, she will never try it with me again, so because she’s brilliant, she can use that to take my heart desire from me. It not a problem, I know what to do. The following school hours. I went to meet Clara as usual. I told her that i brought food from home and i brought her own portion of it as well, it has been a normal thing for us to eat together as a friend, I gave her, her own portion before i left her sit, but something happened, Harmony came in they talked for a while, I was looking at them from my sit, then she brought out the food, one of the junior student told me that my attention is needed at the staff room. I followed her immediately, some minutes later after i left the staff room i went back to my class but to my surprised, Harmony was the one eating the food, WTF i wanted to screamed but thank goodness that i quickly closed my mouth, he ate the food finished, then Clara later came in, they started talking and laughing again, I knew it going to be a bad news, the food was poisoned, I have gotten the poison from a street girl in my street, I just want to deal with Clara but it was Harmony that ate it. What if anything happened to Harmony. Harmony later went to his class too
After some minutes, we we’re told that Harmony was been rushed out of the school compound, I don’t know what to do but the truth is that, i don’t know it will take effect like this, she only told me that when i used the poison for Clara she will only got sick for some minutes and later she will be fine, not that i want to kill her, but Harmony situation has gotten to the extent that the school health center couldn’t help, some minutes, the news was everywhere, Harmony is dead. I cried severally but i noticed Clara she has been looking at me awkwardly that day. It’s was very clearing to her that it was the food that i gave her that killed Harmony, she came to meet me but i lied, she was the only one that knew that i killed him.
Clara I called her name, I saw her trying to look at me more clearly this time, she smiled for a while before replying,so it’s you, but why did you hide me here, oh because you knew i knew your secret, you killed Harmony all because of your jealous attitude, why can’t you asked me before you go ahead to kill him, we were on our way to your house that day, your mom told us that she sent you on an errand, I told him to come say hi to you that day. But you’re not at home that day, I tried calling your number but it wasn’t going through, so what else did you want me to do, so all you could do is to kill me, I knew it was a mistake, your plan was for me, I would have died instead if i ate the food, why are you so wicked, you don’t worth to be a human, you’re an animal putting on human flesh she said, but i cut her short. Shut up Clara, did you ever realize that you’re under my control, I can kill you, she smiled, of course you have tried doing that several times but guess you’re only wasting your time. I collect the gun from jigaa who was just looking at the both of us, I pointed it on her head, I was about pulling the trigger when my phone rang. It was Lucas.
