Revenge of Ex-girlfriend: Episode

"Babe, I'm coming, I need to
teach that man sitting over there
a lesson for trying to mess up my
sister's life" she said to her
friend, Naomi standing up..
"Wait a minute, which man are
you talking about?" Naomi asks
"That man over there. I have
been listening to their
conversations. He is the same
man I told you about, the man
that has being dating my sister
for the past 9 years."
"Yes, so which lesson are you
trying to teach him?" Naomi asks
"Naomi look, I have been
eavesdropping to their
conversation. I heard him saying
something about marrying
another girl, that he can't marry
my sister. Can you imagine? After
wasting her time for 9 years, he
is planning on dumping her for
another girl? In fact, I'm still
wasting time here." She arose,
but before she could turn, Fred
and his friend had already left.
"Like seriously, where is he?
Where is he hiding now?" She
said searching for him around:
"Naomi, have you seen what you
have caused now? Why did you
stopped me? You were the
reason he saw me and ran away.
Why didn't you tell me that he
"Hei! Why shouting at me like
that? I didn't see when he left! So
stop shouting at me, please. Just
sit down, people are staring at
you" Naomi asks
"Why is he running, he should
have stayed so that I will give
him a little disgrace, hopeless
man. Anyway, I don't blame him,
I only blame my clueless sister for
ignoring my incessant advises"
"But Mercy, you should always
learn to control your anger, you
are a woman, please." Naomi
"Naomi, you don't really
understand anything. Anyway,
lets forget about it"
Fred drew his friend and left the
restaurant immediately he
"Guy, what happened? Why did
you dragged me like that?" Osita
"Osita, I saw Mercy and I quickly
captured what she was about to
do next" Fred answers
"Mercy, who is Mercy?" Osita asks
"She is Linda's sister. That girl is
trouble. She is shameless and can
behave anyhow in public. I
understood her body language
when she wanted to stand up.
Maybe she heard all I said. So I
had to leave immediately to avoid
"But what about the food we
"They can take care of it"
"Hmm...Fred, just look at how
scared you are. You are planning
on dumping Linda but your
conscience is not following you
along, if not, you wouldn't be
scared like this. So, I still suggest
you retrace your steps. Linda has
stood by you for so many year,
you made her turned down
other men with the stiff promise
of marriage, so I suggest you
think about it carefully. If you ask
me, I would advise you to marry
Linda. Those issues you listed are
just minor things that can be
sorted out. Maybe she thinks that
you are OK with her staying at
home, that was why she
preferred it. Talk to her Fred,
fashion out things with her,
believe me she will change"
"Osita, you are not even
understanding me. She is
supposed to know things to do
and when to do them, not
waiting for someone to ask or
instruct her to do them. I want a
strong woman, a woman that
has purpose in life and can also
take actions without seeking
direction from anybody. These
are Mandy's typical nature and
added to that quality, she is
That is why I want to secure a
new apartment and leave the old
one for Linda. I will start creating
a distance, so that before she
knew it, I'm already gone. And by
then, the pain of loosing me
won't be that tragic for her.
"So, Osita please let's stop this
Linda's discussion now. Can we
go and have our lunch now in
another restaurant?" Fred asks
And Osita reluctantly said "OK"
Soon after Fred left the place,
Mercy called Linda on phone and
informed her about the new
development, but she was so not
interested in hearing her out.
"Linda, shey I told you, but you
wouldn't listen to me?" Mercy
"Mercy, please, if its about Fred, I
am so not interested. Ever since I
started dating Fred, you have
never liked him for once. You get
easily despised at his
"Linda, I am not begging for you
to hear me out. Fred is about
getting married to another girl.
"Mercy, I said enough" Linda cut
in: "You know what, I think I will
stop answering your calls,
because this days, you have
nothing important to talk about,
only badmouthing Fred, spewing
negative things about him. Please
I am hanging up now"
"Wait.....wait.....sister wait, don't
hang up" Mercy requests
But Linda was already furious,
she disconnected the call.
"What is wrong with Mercy?
Every time she keeps making up
stories against Fred, she has
never liked him a bit." Linda
"I don't know why my sister has
refused to see the clear picture.
Anyway, this will be the last time
I will be tipping her. I am done
talking to her, after all, its her life white first communion outfits for flower girl
and not mine"
From that day, Fred started
exposing his real intentions to
Linda and she was getting
When he returned home that
day, he expected Linda to ask
him about it because he knew
that her sister had already gisted
her about her encounter during
the day, but she kept mum.
Some days later, Fred was lucky
to find a new apartment. And
that was when he started
creating a distance from Linda.
He began giving her excuses.
Oneday, Linda who couldn't bear
what was happening again
asked him: "Baby, what is going
on. At first I thought it was work
that is stealing you away from
me, but I have now discovered
that it is something far from it.
You no longer sleep at home, and
you have dropped the rate at
which you used to call me on
phone. Baby, tell me, what is
going on? I am getting scared.
You know that loosing you is one
thing that I fear most in life."
"I think I should use this
opportunity to give her a hint"
Fred suggests in his heart:"Linda
"Stop it!" Linda cut in: "Why are
you now feeling so comfortable
calling me by my actual name,
"Linda"? What happened to the
pet names you used to call me?"
"Is Linda no longer your name?
Whether I call you Linda or baby,
they are all the same thing"
"Baby, you have never addressed
me by my real name until
recently, are you breaking up
with me?" Linda worries
"I am not breaking up with you,
but soon my job will be doing
"What does that mean?" Stunned
Linda asks as her eyes began
glaring in anxiety.
"See, there is this contract that
was awarded to my company in
Uganda. I am the only person
fitted to travel to that country to
run it because of my marital
status. I am not married yet, that
"Baby, what are you saying? It
doesn't just make sense. What
has your marital status has to do
with your job?"
"How do I make up this story
now..." He asked himself: "Linda,
to cut the story short, I'm
releasing you from the bond that
united us, you are free to marry
any man that comes your way,, if
I go to Uganda now, I might
spend years and it won't be right
asking you to wait for me, you
know you are not getting any
younger. Just don't wait for me,
please. I have to go now, I'm
running late" Fred says leaving
Linda couldn't even believe all he
said, because she knew that the
excuse he gave did not rhyme, it
was a pure lie.
She stood fixed looking at Fred
leaving, trying to decipher what
could be the real reason behind
his recent actions, when she got
herself, Fred was already at the
door with his travelling bag.
"Hold it there Fred!, I said stop
there!" Linda commands with a
deep harsh voice
