THE UNEXPECTED LOVE
(Tochi in school)
Tochi averted her eyes from Linda immediately
the sound came from the door. She couldn't
guess who the person was because nobody had
ever knocked at her door. Her mother only
opened it without knocking or knock and opens
instantly. Was it Wisdom? No, Wisdom only go
straight to the backyard and rather make
himself known using his mouth than knocking.
Sometime, he doesn't even say a word but
stands at the door until his presence is noticed.
Tochi cracked the door opened. "Kingsley?" she
dried her tears again and rubbed her hands on
her black skirt like a Tata.
Hearing the name, Kingsley, Linda sat up gazing
at the door. She couldn't see anybody but
Tochi. But when the door was opened widely,
she saw Kingsley gradually walking towards her.
While Tochi stood at the door to take a look of
what will happen.
"kingsley.." Linda paused.
"How can i stay when i know you are in pains?"
Kingsley began. He stood beside the bed staring
at her. "If i dont forgive you who will i forgive? wedding dresses for tall brides
If i turn my back on you, definitely i I'm turning
my heart and feelings down..."
Linda jumped up from the bed and hugged him
crying uncontrollably. "I'm so sorry. Please,
"Is okay, i've forgiven you already" Kingsley held
her tightly while she cried on his shoulder...
Wisdom and Chester were together in the room-
Chester's. It was no different from one of the
rooms he entered when still in London-the
electric white bulb, pumping bed and pillows
and other modern materials.
"Guy, you are lucky" Wisdom adjusted on the
bed wearing a light T-shirt which matched his
complexion. "Or should i say Esther is lucky?"
"We are both lucky" Chester replied in front of a
mirror. He adjusted his tie in a black suit then
turned. "How do look?"
"You luck great. Now, i can say that Esther is the
"Because you are far more handsome" they
"You won't believe how beautiful she is now"
Chester went back to the mirror but Wisdom
remained quiet. "That reminds me, isn't it time
you propose to Tochi?"
Chester turned as if the question was weird.
"Yes, pro-po-se" he opened his eyes widely.
"Calm down, bro. I will definitely do that"
"When? Until thy kingdom come? All these boys
around will take her from you if you don't act
fast" he returned to the mirror again smiling at
his own joke.
"Tochi can never fall for that" Wisdom boasted
Linda minimized the rate of her tears. She sat
side by side with Kingsley on the bed. However,
Tochi had gone out giving them some privacy.
"You know what?" Kingsley began. "I also have a
confession to make. If i were to be a girl, i
would probably be in your shoes now. So it
doesn't matter anymore. What matters now is
after everything, we still love ourselves" he
looked at her. "I still love you"
Linda stared at him but suddenly averted her
eyes. "But what about the pregnancy? Should i
"No! Don't, the owner will one day come for it.
Don't harm an innocent child" he hugged her.

him admiring their handwork-bringing up the
children academically. Mr Anuma adjusted his
eyeglasses when the marriage kicked off. "I will
enjoy this" he nodded his head.
Tochi and Wisdom occasionally glanced at each
other when the priest was joining Esther and
Chester together. However, Jennifer noticed a
fair handsome guy admiring her from a distant.
She averted her eyes instantly when their eyes
"You may now kiss your pride" the priest
announced. Then Chester slowly unveiled Esther
and kissed her. Everybody began to clapped.
Kingsley glanced at Linda. He smiled at her and
held her closer to himself as not to feel...
outside the box.
"Better get prepared oh" Melody whispered to
Edwin and they laughed.
The wedding came to an end. When the pride
and the groom went home, everybody, who
knew Mr Anuma gathered around him outside
the church feeling happy to see him once again.
Even Mr Anuma was surprise to see how fat, tall

beautiful his students were.
"Sir, i miss you!"

"And your mode of talking!"
"Even your dressing!" they all shouted and

"See how predominantly your bodies have
They laughed. Even Mr Anuma smiled at his own
words. Just then, Jennifer noticed the guy
coming to her..
