Journey to picture perfect II

She got down from her car and quickly rushed to the front of her car to inspect the damage, the owner of the other car too came out of his car. The other car suffered more damage and looking at the model of the car she sighed inwardly. Of all cars to hit why did I have to hit a Mercedes Benz!  The car stared back at her with its affected headlights this is bad..

“Lady is there an explanation to that careless driving?” The man wore a calm face but she could feel his anger, she looked back to see the traffic that was building up as a result of their collision. Well this is embarrassing….

“I am so so sorry sir, I got distracted for like a split second, I swear it!” She lifted both her hands to prove she meant her words. “ok please, let’s move to the side please, so we don’t hold people going inside” she interrupted him before he could say anything, “please I beg of you” I promise I’m never running ”

“Fine!” He said and walked to the car, she also turned to enter her car, while she put her hands together in a pleading form to the people behind her.

They both drove into Mega chicken parking lot. And by the time she parked and got down from the car, she already had an idea. 

“Once again I’m sorry for the…..”

“Please lady the apology is enough, what’s the solution to this act of carelessness?”

She looked at him with her eyes wide open with an expression that read no he didn’t! 

The name is Deola Badamosi, not lady….” She paused for effect ” and if you had not cut me off, I was going to suggest I call my mechanic to fix it, or better still you call your mechanic to fix it and I pay for the expenses”

“Erhmmmmm, sure that’s ok, hold on.” The man stuttered, obviously taken back by her boldness. She felt pleased with herself. That will show him not to be a bully, mentally giving herself a pat in the back. She leaned on his car while he bent inside to retrieve his phone,  nice ass though she thought admiring his backside. She had ample time to peruse him, as he walked back and forth talking to his mechanic.

Her phone rang again, interrupting her thoughts, she leaned in through her car window to retrieve the phone. It was her mother. She cut the call, not ready to have another argument with her today especially not now, not when she was trying to be out of this situation.As if her tummy heard her, it made a grumbling  sounds.

“So I have called him and he is taking a bike down here” the man said, the man? I don’t even know his name. She thought. 

“My name is Deola Badamosi” she brought out her hands to shake him

“Emeka Peterson, this is a rather her unusual way to meet right?” He smiled and shook her hands.

“Ahahahahah yah it is” their hands were still joined, both parties didn’t notice, her phone rang again and broke their spell. She removed her hands and looked exactly at the screen, It was Ada. She made a gesture of please give me a minute.

“Where are you na. Gist don dey finish and we are starving!….”

“I’ll be there shortly, I had a little accident”

“Accident! Where? Oh my God babe are you ok?” Ada gushed out, she could also hear Kerri asking what happened what happened in the background 

“I’m ok, let me sought this out and I’ll soon be there” she looked at her watch to check the time. “Please how long will it take for him to be here, I need to go get somethings inside, she pointed at the restaurant. 

” I’m sure he’ll soon be here but you can go get what you want, he should be here by the time you come out.”

” Ok thanks” but as she walked away her sixth sense told her he was following her movement with his eyes, she smiled and put in more sway to her walk.


“She’s just getting here now, oya let me call you back, yes I will tell her”

“Who was that?” Deola asked as she entered the house, she immediately felt the cooling effect of the air condition. Her car air condition had been blowing out hot air

“Ese, abeg reduce your voice Mikki just slept off now now” Mikki was her one year and three months old hyperactive son.

“Yes ma” she replied with a mock whisper, immediately Kerri rushed out and hugged her

” Oh my gosh, thank God you’re ok, do you feel any pains ?” She gushed on

Kerri was the mother hen of their crew. On the day she was passing out from NYSC, her parents had planned to surprise her with a visit to Jos. The other three of the clique knew about it, so it was getting a bit worrisome when by by four long after they had collected their certificates Kerris’s parents were no where to be found. They had first tried the numbers several times but when they couldn’t get through they decided to let Kerri in on the surprise visit. After calling Lagos and the airline several times. They chucked it up to bad reception service on the kaduna road. 

It was by the hotel poolside where they had lodged later that evening, eating and enjoying the atmosphere, that they heard some people at the next table lamenting. Ese being the quiet one amongst them picked up what they were saying and sent a text to Ada who in turn sent a text to Deola. Kerris parents were on the Bus that had an accident, her mum had died instantly but her father was rushed to the hospital in jos, all this was communicated to them by the bus office when they called and confirmed her parents were on the bus. He was going to be discharged the next day because the hospital said he was ok . Kerri had come that morning , only to get to his room and it was empty.

Kerri lost her father to a ruptured internal artery

Ever since then Kerri had been overly protective of them all, that had its own advantages and disadvantages but Deola was in the mood the soothe her friends fears.

“No worry babe, nothing major, just a scratch on my car that’s all”

“Are you sure” Ese looked her with doubt

“K I told you not to worry nah, you know D would have shouted for the world to hear if she was hurt ” Ada said as she signaled kitchen 

“Ofcourse! Oya, come lets go and eat,hunger wan kill person her” as she said this she was already walking to the direction of the kitchen. Ese was still watching her but followed them to the kitchen

“So what’s the amebo that could not be said over the phone” Deola said as she set the food nylon on the kitchen center counter.

“Guess what?!” Ada clapped and put both her hands to her waist “Kennedy proposed to Ese this morning!she said yes”

” what? No way!”
