I woke up late that morning, I searched around but Lucas has left for work. I remembered that i waited all night for him yesterday before i slept off but he didn’t show up, guess he must have been busy for a while that night and since i don’t plan to disturb him, reasons why i didn’t bother to meet him yesterday night. I checked around the house but he was no where to be found. I picked my phone to call at least even if not for anything, he should have say hi before leaving that morning. I dial his number, it rang severally but he didn’t pick up. Later that morning, I went to the kitchen after i have taken my bath, since its not new to me, I cooked some rice cake for myself while i left some for him maybe when he’s back in the evening. I remembered Micheal. I dial his number, it rang twice before he picked up. Hello Linda, how are you? He asked immediately the phone got connected, I’m fine I replied. Where have you been, I have checked you several times in your house, but no one is there, even your Mom, do you traveled. I have knew Michael for his sturbon attitudes, if I tell him no, I’m sure he will locate me here so i lied. Yeah I traveled with Mom to Spain. Oh that’s great. I have an appointment there next weekend, he said. Really Micheal and his wahala again, I groan okay will be expecting you I replied. The house seems bored but thank God someone came later that day, claim his name is Henry, he told me he came to check on Lucas and since Lucas wasn’t home he decided to keep my company, seriously the guy can be as jovier as you can think, he has really made my day for me, he’s very funny, but one thing i noticed from him was how he got to know me, this is my first time of seeing him, but he sounds like someone that knows me, but since i don’t want to be optimistic I don’t bother to talk about it much. He left later in the evening. I haven’t heard from Lucas since then, I picked my phone as i dial his number again. This time it was switched off. It’s getting dark, Lucas don’t come home late, what’s wrong, I was kind of worried about him, I’m not even sure if he went to work, on a norms Lucas don’t come home late if he went for work, and again I called him in the morning, he would have called if he saw my call. What’s wrong, I dial his number again it rang but he wasn’t picking up. This time it was dark and everywhere seems silent, the estate and all living within the estate has gone inside, as the sound of the bird can be heard. I looked around the estate but not even his car seems to be coming. I went inside my room thinking about him, what if his Mom has gone ahead to hurt him, or what something bad happened to him. I dial his number again, he wasn’t picking up. I groan, Lucas please pick up i said as i dial his number again. It rang severally time again, I’m very sure when he checked his phone he will got more than 50 miss call. I couldn’t believe that after several thinking, I slept off.
I got to the airport late due to some late delayed i got on my way, I went to meet the receptionist, told her I’m looking for a lady here, just like the address and some other documents given to me, they called her while i was told to wait at the receptionist. after some minutes, just like i was expecting. A lady of her 24 years came to meet me, she was putting on a pink skinny cloth with a shining skirt of gold touches, she was looking good and beautiful. Hey Lucas she said first , hey Tina. Nice to meet you again as i frame a smile. Yeah thank you, she said as we moved away from the receptionist, now to the parking slot, how’s your trip i asked, fine thank you. She entered my car as we drove, Mom has told me lot about you, she said. Really, what did she say about me, I said jokingly, I saw her smile for a while, nothing special just how handsome and good you’re, I frame a smile again, so how’s Scotland, I asked, she told me lot about the county, how she schooled and got scholarship to go study in Ukraine and all. We gist for a while when i noticed my phone ringing, I looked the phone it was Linda, I sigh, I knew it’s not possible to pick any call at this point of time, she kept on calling, but I only silent the phone, I knew it gonna look awkward if i switch the phone off, so i silent the phone. After an hours time we got to Mrs Williams home, she requested to meet my mom first, so I took her there, as usual mom was expecting us, I drove pass the gate, before I parked at the parking slot. She came down as i want the drama to look real, I went ahead to get her bag as we walk to the sitting room, Mom was spotted at one side of the room having fun with a glass of cup in her hand, I greeted first, I noticed that she scan my present, now seeing Tina’s bag in my hand make her feel happy, how are you my son, before Tina comes up, she hug her as they gist for a while, I left the room as I went outside to the parking slot, I sat down thinking of what next to do, then my phone rang again, it was Linda I wanted to pick up then i remembered what happened the last time i came and how Mom got to have seen me through her CCTV. since I’m not sure if he will be seeing me again, so I decided not to pick up, after some hours I went to meet Tina and mom guess they won’t stop gisting, I heard the maid said it loudly that the food is ready , mom called everyone to come eat, I joined the family as we ate together that afternoon. I noticed Tina starring at me, I frame a smile, I think mom noticed. Later that evening Mom told me about our date, and she even plan our wedding date, seriously I’m not feeling comfortable with this, but i just have to do this, I smiled in agreement to her conclusion. We left her house around 8pm that evening, I have my plan, I knew i can’t take Tina home, but i have rented an apartment in Las Vegas where I plan to take her there, I was still driving When Linda call came in, this time Tina noticed, why not pick your call ,she asked. I lied, it was from work, I will call him later. We got home late that night.
