THE AGONY OF LOVE-Episode 35
Ojo Oluwasegun .A
Immediately the door closed, Amara smiled. what are you doing here Alex? She asked again. wait where are my manners? She walked around as if mocking herself, what may I offer you dear brother? She said angrily . I can see all the wines in the mansion cannot quench your thirst, making no move toward the fridge.
You can cut it off Amara, am not your brother he said as he sat down.
Amara smiled, oh no, oh no Alfred don’t tell me you forgot the words of your dear mother so easily. How can you manage Benson crew with such a forgetful mind, I won’t be surprise if you bring your father’s company down.
Alfred didn’t look offended but he brought his eyes down , looking sad and dreamy. I found out this morning that Mrs. Benson isn’t my biological mother, Amara smiled died instantly.
What nonsense are you talking about? She asked looking surprise. As she processed the meaning of what she just heard.
I knew there was a reason why I kept thinking about you, why I couldn’t let go of your thought.
Oh I wasn’t in your mind before, just a stupid lust occupied it, now. if you would take your lying self out of my office now, I won’t have my past disturbing my present.
I am not lying, we are not related Alfred said.
Enough, Amara shouted, she couldn’t believe she had been killing herself over what wasn’t real. Get out she shouted, get out this instance.
She screamed on top her voice willing to get him out of her head.
The door jerked opened and Maxwell stood there, I heard screaming, his eyes took two seconds to look at Amara before looking at Alfred who stood looking at the intruder. Maxwell arrogance was fully matched by Alfred as they stood looking at each other both wanting to prove something. Despite his arrogance Maxwell sweet smiling face did not change. Maxwell looked at Alfred again and recognized him as the son of the senator, he didn’t need a seer to tell him there is history between him and Amara, remembering one trick he had always seen Kelvin use, he lifted his shoulders which didn’t make any difference as Alfred was taller than him, he lifted his head to look at him eye ball to eye ball, who is this? he asked , pretending he didn’t know him. He saw that his remark worked on Alex, who looked at him angrily.
At the corner of his eyes he saw Amara walking towards him with determination and she was also smiling, you always have the power of showing up anytime I need you darling, surprising Maxwell the More, she placed her hands on his shoulders and she kissed him.
Who the hell is this Amara? Alfred shouted. Coming behind her, boiling with rage.
She tuned with her hands still on Maxwell, really Alfred you don’t pay attention on the business world and I pity your father company, this is the owner of bracket” Maxwell Babs she said smiling, he is my fiancé she said.
Maxwell went still, as he felt Amara, his blood ran into his head, he knew what was happening he just had a bad terms coming up with it. She is using me? me! He was too shock that he couldn’t believe it, at first he felt her hands and she was smiling to Alex. He couldn’t point if her goal was to annoy Alfred or make him jealous.
What ever the case may be it didn’t taste good to him, but for this life of his he couldn’t call her bluff. Swallowing hard he looked at Alex, looking annoyed, that is right he said playing along with her. I can’t believe someone is making my woman angry when I just came to take her for lunch.
Amara stiffed, her smile leaving her face instantly, she quickly corrected herself. She smiled up to Maxwell, making him blink, she wondered how a simple smile can make someone look so breath taking. Oh Max, the visit of an unwanted pest cannot spoil our mood. Where are you taking me to honey? She said, smiling.
He raised his hands and brush away the hair on her face, it a surprise darling.
Alfred burst out with rage coming toward them.
Will you two give me the pleasure of getting out of the way, the sight of you make me sick.
Amara looked at him and said, I hope you remain sick, that way you keep your disdainful self from disturbing my life she said angrily moving away so he can pass. Do not let me see your stupid face around here again and I can get a restraining order.
Alfred laughed out, that law cannot stop me from doing what I want woman .
But I can Maxwell responded, no one interfere to what is mine, it will do you good to remember that.
Alfred looked back at him and said, this woman is not yours. And walked out of the office.
Alfred was really mad as he stopped a taxi and went in and hit the door forcefully. The desire to hit Amara and Maxwell was too strong: it had been a miracle he left the office without creating a scene, the fact that he married Amara secretly in his father’s sitting room made no one knew he was married. And those who knew about it kept quiet about it. Alfred admitted she now has a man in her life, but he never expected the man to be this handsome, he had been so handsome that he was called beauty enough to put any male model to shame, his look was enough to make any man who try to take his woman bow in shame , any woman will take a look at Maxwell and dump any man she’s with, and on top of it he is wealthy, Alfred thought angrily.
He shouldn’t be angry, he didn’t have the right to be angry. But here he his boiling with rage over his ex-sister and ex-wife was with another man, but he remembered that his wife and daughter were in Abuja where he ought to be but his mind didn’t dwell in it. He just discovered there was nothing wrong in getting involved with Amara: that was only the good thing he liked about the news he heard this morning. He will be damned if he did not make use of this opportunity. He picked up his phone and called Toba.
The phone was answered almost instantly.
Hey man what trouble are you in that you are calling me? Toba asked.
Cut that off am not in a good mood for that now, Alfred barked in to the phone.
Wow someone offended you? his lordship, if it not Precious I doubt it Amara
since she is in Abuja that is out of question , I want you to run a check on Maxwell babs for me.
What about him, Toba asked out of curiosity.
I want to know about his past relationship and any of his ex that is willing to have him back.
Let me guess he his involved with Amara.
That’s none of your business just do what I asked you.
She is your sister, Toba said, why are you so senseless.
News flash, she is not my sister, its along story just get me the information.
OK man, just to add to your heavy load, Precious might be in Lagos as we speak.
What! Alfred shouted the taxi driver almost lost control due to shock, what is she doing here? Alfred shouted.
Saving her marriage Toba said, I went to your house and I was told she left the house the day after you left and she kept your daughter with her friend.
Alfred put his hand on his head, this woman will bring my death, he said. Wondering what she had been doing without confronting him, he ended the phone without saying a word he closed his eyes with his brain running wide. When he embarked on this journey he never planned on dealing with Precious too.
