Story: THE TRINITY-Episode 18


The Trinity-Episode 18

Sophie’s face was filled with shock as she saw Helena. They had both been inseparable childhood friends. Their friendship had lasted all the way through secondary school. They only lost touch after Sophie’s family relocated.

Initially, they had tried to keep in touch but after a while, it become very difficult and they stopped.

 For over 10 years, they hadn’t been touch. They were not just ordinary friends. They did everything together to the point that several people thought they were sisters. Sophie had in fact been closer to Helena than she was to her sister Nikky.

The two long-lost friends starred at each other now, not believing what they were seeing. This was most unexpected.

Helena was the first to speak “Is this you Sophie? I can’t believe this! Is this really you?”

Sophie couldn’t hold it anymore, she grabbed Helena and embraced her tight.

“Come in, I miss you so much!” She said.

Because of their reunion, they quickly forgot the motive of the meeting. They were just so happy to see each other again.

“Are you the same Helena I spoke to?” Sophie finally asked.

“I can’t believe this whole thing. I am the one Sophie, Jason’s wife.” Helena confirmed.

“Where have you been all this while? After your family relocated, I didn’t get to hear of you again,” Helena continued
“Things became difficult. We moved severally until we finally settled. I lost my phone and and eventually got a new number. I lost all the numbers on the old phone. I tried severally to contact you but you know you didn’t have that many friends I could relate with so it was difficult.” said Sophie.

“Along the line, I met this guy, who actually made me very happy with his love until I found out that he was cheating on me.” Sophie said and she started telling her everything she had been through.
“I hope you haven’t broken our chastity promise?” Helena asked.
“No Helena, I’m still a virgin” Sophie said.

“Good, I guess this guy must be very understanding then” Helena assumed.

“That’s what I thought initially. But you’re married now to Jason, I hope you also kept your promise?” Sophie asked.

Helena and Sophie had always been sincere with each other. Their friendship was such that they could tell each other anything. Ten years later, that hadn’t changed. Helena wasn’t about to start lying.

“Hmmmn Sophie, I couldn’t. I don’t know what happened to me. I guess I found myself in certain circumstances beyond my control. I am a changed person now. I have been very bad Sophie and I’m currently in a tough situation. I wish I knew how to correct things but I am thinking it might just be too late.” Helena confessed.

“Whatever happened dear, there is nothing too late for God. I am sure we can patch up and fix whatever it is.” Sophie answered.

“I’ll tell you about it but you tell me first, are you really dating my husband? Now that I know it’s you, I have my doubts.” Helena said.

“Haba Helena, you know I can’t do such a thing. He told me a lot about what was going on in his marriage. I guess this is the best time to talk to me as your sister. We can figure things out Helena.” Sophie said.

They then began to talk.

On the other side of town, Amah and Jason were deep in conversation at the restaurant.

“I believe it’s time for you to tell me what is really going on with my brother.” Jason said.

“Ok. Let me properly introduce myself to you. I know it has been a long time but can you remember Gloria your ex?” Amah asked.

“Of course I do, everything was perfect between us until Michael my brother came along. How is she? How do you know her by the way?” Jason asked.

“Hmm, She died three years ago.” Amah revealed.

“What?! Gloria is dead? What happened to her?” Jason asked in shock.

“Suicide Jason, she committed suicide out of disappointment and a broken heart.” Amah said with tears in her eyes.

You could tell that she had been really hurt by that.

“Gloria is my biological sister and your brother broke her heart when she needed him most. He abandoned her and left. She couldn’t bear it and she committed suicide.“ Amah said.

“Oh no! Gloria was your sister? She always spoke about you but we never got the opportunity to meet. But why are you blaming Michael for this? It was her choice to follow him.” Jason said.

“You still don’t get it, do you? There’s a note she wrote before she committed suicide. Michael and Gloria had agreed to get married in court. On that day, we were all gathered for the occasion. After several hours, it became apparent that Michael wasn’t going to show up. We tried reaching him severally; we called his phone and sent him messages – all in vain. Finally, he sent her a text that he never intended marrying her – it was just a game for him.” Amah revealed.

It was now apparent that Amah’s motive in her relationship with Michael was to exert revenge for her sister’s death. Jason saw the tears in Amah’s eyes and felt the depth of her hurt.

“Hmmmn. Michael really did that?” Jason was shocked. He knew Michael’s capacity but he didn’t know he could be that evil. He was however in for more shock as Amah was just warming up.

“That’s not all… Your wife is not who you think she is, Jason.” Amah went on.

“What are you insinuating?” Jason asked. He was getting furious with the direction the conversation was taking. He got up as if to take his leave.
