Sochina - Episode 2

Theme: My Only Sister

Written by Ndozi Nuellitta

FOR a split second, Annette was lost in thought
When she had thought he wanted to talk things over, and tell her what she's been itching to hear for a long time now, here he is asking her about someone else's contact

What the heck

But hold on, she didn't even know the person he's talking about, she was dazed about it

"Who's the person you're talking about?", she asked

Fred looked at her
"Timi, your friend and classmate. The one whom you came with to my father's office the period you were writing your exams", he explained

Ohh! Timilayo
The girl she and her sister had nicknamed 'tolotolo',

She was so proud and full of herself, loves swaying her torso whenever she walks, that's why they had nicknamed her 'tolotolo'

Thinking of this made her laugh, and she didn't know when she had laughed out

"You okay?", Fred asked

That was when she realized she was with someone, and that they were discussing

She looked at him
"Ohh, I'm fine", she said with a start
"Yeah, u remember her now", she said

Fred smiled
"So do you have her contact?", he asked

Now she realized what he wanted, of course, or what else would he want her contact for?

She felt pains to her bone marrows

"Er......yes....no.... I mean, no", she stuttered

His eyes widened
"No? You don't?"

She shook her head
She has her contact of course, but giving it to him......ohh Jesus
It would spell doom for her, and a stop to her crushing on him

She decided to give it to him, for the blind love she got for him
She decided not to lie to him

"Sorry, I mean yes. I have it", she said against her will

"Good, please can I have it?"

Now her heart was shredding into pieces, slowly and slowly

"Sure, let me go get it", she walked into the house, took out her phone, and penned down the contact on a sheet

By the time she was out, Dr Kingsley was already walking towards the car, still discussing with her mother

Fred was still leaning on the car, presumably waiting for her

"Here", she gave the sheet to him

"Ohh, thanks", he took the sheet and glanced at it

"You are welcome", she faked a smile

"Take care", he walked to the driver's side and entered the car
His father entered and they drove off

In pains, anger and tears, Annette stormed into the house as soon as they left

She rested on the window panes and fought the tears welling, from flowing
She was so bittered

Sochima entered and saw her sister in that position, she was shocked

She walked up to her and tapped her on the shoulder

"Hey sis, what's wrong with you?", she asked

Annette turned to look at her and sighed. She said nothing

"I'm asking ya a question", Sochima pressed on
"I saw you and your Fred talking, did he say anything to you yet?", she asked

Sochima knew how mad her sister was about Fred, so mad
And she knew she loves him

Annette shook her head
"Not yet", she said

"Then what were the both of you talking about?"

"He was asking for Timi's contact"

"Huh? 'Tolotolo?", she asked, stiffening a laugh

Annette bursted into laughter and Sochima, not able to hold hers too, joined and they both rolled in laughter

"You won't cease to make me laugh. Yes, it's 'tolotolo', it's her contact"

Sochima scoffed
"What for? What would a handsome dude like him be doing with that turkey?"

Annette looked at her
"It's okay Sochi, the insult is enough"

Sochima's eyelids abated
"But I don't know why Fred had decided to choose a turkey over this epitome of beauty, this black beauty standing before me", she demonstrated

Annette laughed out
"Stop the flattery and let's talk something important"

"I'm not even good at flattery, so you gonna be sure I'm not flattering you"

Annette sighed, playing with her fingers

"Is that why you look worried?", Sochima asked

Annette looked up and heaved a sigh
"Yeah", she nodded

"You can't be too sure, maybe it's for something else he wants to see her"

Annette looked at her and she nodded

"Yes", she said

"I hope so, because I..... I really love that guy"

Sochima smiled
"I know, don't be worried, it's gonna be fine", just then she heard her mom calling her

"Gosh! I have to go big sis", and she ran off

Annette sighed as she watched her ran off, she hopes everything gonna be fine as she has said
Moreover, it might be for something else Fred wants to see Timi, and not for what she's thinking

A knock on the door snapped her out of her thoughts

She walked to the door
"I'm coming", she said as the knock kept coming
Who was that?

She opened the door to find Timi smiling at her

Hmm, talk of the devil

"Hi Anne", Timi greeted, flashing her thirty two
As usual, she was putting on skimpy clothes and looked like a whore

Annette was happy her dad wasn't around, else he would have chased her away for putting on such clothes to his house

"How you doing Timi?", she asked, opening the door wide to usher her in

"I'm good and you?", she entered and Annette closed the door

"I'm good as well", they walked to the sofa and sat

"You looking beautiful everyday, seems secondary school really hid your beauty", Timi said, and they laughed

"Thank you, you too. Well, you've been beautiful since I knew you", Annette replied her

She smiled
"Well, what happened between you and Fred?", she asked

Annette looked at her inquiringly, what does she mean?

"What do you mean?", she asked

"Come on, don't pretend. Fred, your number one love, did you two had a brawl?"

Annette shook her head
"I don't still understand, we didn't had a brawl, and nothing happened between us", she said

Timi's eyes widened
"Are you serious?"

Now Annette was confused
"What's the problem?", she asked

She sighed
"Well, I met him on my way coming here, he stopped me and he...... he....", she hesitated

Annette was now becoming agitated, her bulging eyes boring holes in Timi

"He what?", she asked

"He asked me out"


Annette felt her world crashing, she was gradually breaking

"He did what?"

"That's why I asked what happened between you two", Timi said, lowering her gaze to the floor

Annette looked into space, nodding her head slowly

"And you accepted instantly I guess", she said

Timi looked at her surprisingly
"Oh, you expected me to turn him down? That handsome dude? That rich god? What would you have done if it were you?"

Annette looked at her with her mouth open
Of course, she would have accepted if she was the one, but not too soon like she did

"Well, we weren't even dating, so I don't think it's a problem", she found herself saying

Timi looked at her
"But I got a problem, I'm in love with someone else", she said

Annette laughed
"For Christ sake you can't love two guys at the same time"

Timi nodded
"Yeah, you are right. But I don't want to leave Fred", she complained

"So what you gonna do to the other guy? Do I know him even?"

"Yeah, it's Peter. I will just handle him soonest", she smirked

Annette shook her head, Peter?
Peter was their classmate, they took the final exams together, so Timi was dating him?

This girl was too loose, she thought it was Mike, because they were both so close at the time they were promoted, she didn't know when Peter saga started

She wanted to ask, but thought it better to keep mute

"Handle him as you've said", she said to her

Timi smiled and shook her head
"Now to what brought me here. Our results are out"

Annette looked at her
"What! What did you say?", she asked

Timi laughed
"Our results are out. I deemed it necessary to come and inform you, because I know you might not know", she paused and looked at her
"Because you are always at home"

Annette slapped her shoulders
"Come on don't blame me on that, my parents won't let me. So have you checked yours?"

"Not yet", she said and glanced at her wrist watch
"I should get going now", she said

"Thanks for coming to inform me", she got up, "ohh, sorry I didn't even remember to give you something", she said and laughed

Timi laughed
"Don't bother yourself please", she said as she got up

"I will o. Wait here", and she ran into the kitchen

She came back minutes later with a can of soft drink and a packet of biscuits

"Here", she handed it to her

"My God", Timi exclaimed, "all these?"

"Oh come on, it's nothing"

"Thank you, God bless. I will be on my way now"

"Let me throw your legs a little", she said and they walked out of the sitting room

Annette escorted her to the gate and returned, she was never allowed to leave the compound, except for important reasons

So her fears has been confirmed, Fred asked her out
He doesn't love her, she should stop killing herself over him

She wasn't the type that fights, she would have fought Timi for taking Fred from her

But Timi wasn't the one who took him away, it was Fred himself who had approached her

Anyways, what will be will be, that was her slogan

Her mind drifted to the results, and she cringed

God, she pray she passes, she had applied for the same university with Fred during her Jamb, and the admission was granted

So, it was her results she prayed to make, at least, she and Fred would be close in the university

She found herself looking all inch anxious, her dad was the one who gonna check out the results for her, and he traveled, not yet back

She hopes he stays a little bit longer, the anxiousness was at it's highest peak

But thinking of Fred, how close they would be at the university, she wanted him to come home soon

She met Sochima at the entrance to the house

"Hey big sis", she called

Annette looked at her

"Guess what?", she smiled

"The news breaker, I can't guess"

"Well, daddy is back".
