[Story] Wrong Number Season 4 Episode 10

I make out time during the week to see my

fiancé in

his office. I got to his office and told him

about

Sharon’s sexuality status.

“Lesbian! What the hell!” He shouted.

“Please keep your voice down and take it

easy”

“Did you just say I should take it easy, we

were

properly raised by our parents and grandma.

Despite

the fact that we were brought up in a land of

freedom”

“I understand”

“I can say I’m proud of the man I’d become,

why is

she different, we had the same upbringing”

“Daniel, you are funny, even twins don’t have

the

same character.

See in the family there’s always a

black sheep. It’s the parents that won’t relent

on

such kid”

But you guys are perfect, your sibling are

wonderful”

I smiled, Daniel thinks we are perfect, well all

thanks

to God. He needs to hear my younger

brother’s story,

thank God he knew my past.

“My younger brother at a point started

exhibiting

waywardness. He’s the only boy and I think

that God

into his head. It got to a stage my Mom

almost regret

having a male child. My Mom prayed and

fasted.

They never spared him. With prayers, discipline,

corrections

and all he changed. He’s doing well for

himself now

and we are all proud of him”

“Really!” He was surprised.

“The devil is cunning and most time he uses

the

children to work against the family, but one

thing is

sure if the parents never relent on those

children, and

trained them up in the way of the Lord, then

they’ll

definitely come around”

“Wow! I’m glad you are the mother of my

unborn

children”

“Daniel it only take God’s grace to raise godly

children”

He sat down on the sofa and I sat beside him.

“What could have led Sharon to this lifestyle

for

Heaven’s sake”

“Maybe she was influenced one way or the

other. All

she needs now is our help and support”

“You know there was a time, that thought

came to me

but I shoved it off.

How can I be so negligence about

my own sister. Gosh!” he hitted his hand

against the

table in front of him.

“Really!”

“Yes I saw the signs but I ignored it”

“What signs?” I asked

“She doesn’t have any close male friends,

even on her

phone, the only pictures you get to see are

females.

There is this guy, who often visit our home in

New

York back then, he liked her so much but my

sister

never gave him audience. I never saw or

heard her go

on a date.

I thought she avoided male friends because

she did

not want to be distracted by guys. I never

knew she

was into women”

“Please keep this to yourself for now, I believe

things

we get better”

“Of course I have to keep it to myself, my

mom will

develop sudden high blood pressure if she

hears this.

In fact she’ll collapse and im not ready to

loose my

Mom”

“And please take things easy with her when

you get

home tonight, she must not run away”

“I will try”

“Don’t just try, let’s cease this opportunity

that she’s

here with you in Nigeria to fix her”

“Ok, I understand”

“I already talked to my Pastor, and a

counsellor in my

church, we can use their help. I believe she’ll

be fine”

He hugged me from behind. “Thank you very

much my

love, what would I do without you”

“Don’t thank me, she’s my sister too”

“What else can I do to help” he said and

turned me

around to face him.

“You can get her Christian books that

emphasized on

ways to stop this act and inspirational book

as well.

Also our responsibilities is to pour out love

without

measures to those who are struggling with

homosexuality”

“Thanks babe”

“You are welcome. I need to run now”

I left his office relieved. I’m glad he handled it

well.

Tunde called me and informed me he has

gotten a job

through one of Daniel’s contact. I was really

happy for

him.

“Is the salary okay” I asked

“#250,000 for a start”

“That’s good”

“I was given a flat and an official car too”

“That’s good, since accommodation is out of

it, then

you can save better”

I said

“Pamilerin, please thank Daniel for me,

although I’ve

called him”

“I will, I wish you the very best Tunde, please

take

good care of yourself”

“Thank you for everything Pamilerin, I will

never forget

everything you did for me”

“All thanks to God, I pray we all meet at the

top.Bye”

“Bye and I wish you and Daniel all the best”

“Thanks” I ended the call and called Daniel’s

line to

thank him.

“I thought you said you don’t have

connections”I said

forming seriousness.

“Oh! Tunde called you right”

“Thanks my love, Thank you for doing this for

me”

“Anything to make you happy my queen”

“I’m really happy right now, thanks” I said.

We talked

for awhile before disconnecting the call.

****

A week to my birthday. Daniel called and

asked what

my plans are for my birthday.

“I don’t have any plans, I’ll just celebrate it

on a low

key.

I replied

“Ok, what do you want for your birthday”

“All I want for my birthday is you” I said

smiling

“Wow! You have me already”

“Yes and I’m grateful for that”

“Ok then, I’ll see you on your birthday”

On my birthday around 7pm, I heard horns

outside the

gate. We are not expecting anyone” I thought.

I called on my younger sister to go and check

who’s

at the gate.

I stood in front of the window to see who it

was. She

opened the gate and I saw Daniel’s car,

followed by

Paul’s car. I was surprised, they all called me

earlier

but they never said they were coming to my

house.

Daniel alighted from the car, Sharon alighted

too. Paul

also alighted from his car with Lizzy. I saw

them

bringing some things out of the car. I saw

drinks, cake

and all. I was wowed.

I was just standing there in front of the

window, I

watched them walked into the house.

“Happy birthday!” they all chorused and

hugged me

one after the other.

I was so happy. “You did not tell me, you’re

planning

something” I said as I hugged Daniel.

“I just decided to let you be, since you said

you

wanted to celebrate on a low key” he said

smiling.

“Thank you sweetheart” I said and pecked

him.

They all gave me the gifts they got for me

except

Daniel. I can’t wait to open their gifts.

Lizzy shared the drink and snacks. We

snapped and

cut the cake. My Parent came back from work

and

joined us in the celebration.

An hour later, we were through with our small

party. I

saw them to the compound with my siblings.

“Wont you asked for your birthday gift” he

asked him

“ What else can I ask for, you already made

my day”

“I want you to ask, so ask me”

“Ok….Daniel can I have my birthday gift?”

“Yes my baby, here is it”

He held a car key before my face.

“Your car is parked outside”

he said

“You bought a car for me?”

“Enough of taking cab, it’s a slap on my face”

I ran towards the gate, I opened the gate and

right in

front of me I sawa brand new Honda CR- V

2016

model. I looked back and everyone was

outside

including my parents.

I jumped on him and hugged him.

“Thank you so much my love”

“You are most welcome my darling”

I entered into the car and start the engine,

Daniel

opened the gate for me and I drove the car

into the

compound. Everyone congratulated me.

This is my best birthday ever. I’m just a

secondary

school teacher for crying out loud and here I

am with

my own car.
