STORY: BEAUTIFUL BELINA (Season 2,Episode 4)

Richard looked from his
father to his mother in utter
amazement and shock. He
could not believe his eyes.

After roaming the estate
and road, he had come to
the conclusion that it was
high time he forgot about
the past and move on.

He afterwards went about
finding out where his mother lived. He did not call
his father; neither did he
call Tunji or anyone who
could probably inform her
because he wanted to catch
her unawares in order to
know the state she was in.

He reached into his pocket
to fetch his phone only to
find it empty with only his
wallet. Not willing to go
back home without
reconciling with his mother,
he went to a business
centre, bought a thousand
naira card in the attendant’s
phone, used it to make a
few calls and left without
even using #100 worth of
the card. He got the address
and set out to search her
out. He had admitted to
himself that Belina was
right and that he truly
needed his mother. There is
always a place a mother
occupies in the heart of a
child.

Richard shook his head in
regret as his annoyance
started showing up in full
velocity. He still could not
believe that his father could
have anything to do with
her despite all that she did
to him.

“What are you doing here
richard?” Mr. Branson asked
looking uncomfortable.
Richard slowly turned his
gaze to his father. “I should
be asking you that father.
What the hell are you doing
here with this… woman?”
he asked shifting his gaze
back to his mother.
“c’mon Richard, respect her.
She is your mother”

“respect. Respect? No. I can
NEVER respect her. NEVER.
You should not even be the
one telling me this, dad. Did
she respect you when you
were struggling to make
her happy? No. Did she
respect you when she
brought various color of
guys to your matrimonial
bed? No. (Laughs bitterly).
Did she respect you when
she slapped you in front of
her stupid s-x partner
when you caught them red-
handed? No. Talk of me?
she never respected me
once; not once. Now don’t
talk to me about respect
because I am sure she does
not know what it means”,
Richard said.

Mr J. Branson hadn’t
forgotten all these but
hearing it again made it
even more painful. He could
not say anything again as
he stared into space
remembering that day. His
world had been shattered
into pieces when he saw
his wife with a fat white
haired man. He had just
come back from a trip, a bit
earlier than he had
proposed because the
business did not fall into
place. He got to the
entrance of the house and
met his son crying. He
asked why he was there
but he did not respond,
trying to stop him from
entering the house. He
neglected Richard’s advice
and let himself in with his
key. On entering, he saw
clothes all over the sitting
room and his temperature
increased as he began to
get the picture of what he
might see. He entered the
room and the sight before
him almost drove him mad
instantly. He wanted to be
sure he had seen correctly
so he closed his eyes
hoping that he would see
something different when
he opens them but his eyes
were forced open with a
very hot slap by Loretta. She
was stark naked just like
her partner who sat down
at the edge of the bed
looking like a fat pig. She
had pushed him out and
locked the door to continue
her act.

As he remembered all these,
fresh tears flowed out of
his eyes and he left the
room quietly. Richard
looked at his mother with
contempt written all over
him. Tears threatened but
he held them at bay; he
hadn’t cried for a long time
and she would not be the
one to change that.
“you know, I actually came
here to settle the rift
between us now, I don’t
care about that anymore.
You are just an opportunist
and a shameless w---e. I
am ashamed I came out of
you. Get a life and leave my
father alone cos he has a
respectable wife”, Richard
said through gritted teeth
and turned to leave.
“No Richard, please. I am
sorry”, she said pleading
with tears.

Richard turned at the
entrance. “Yes. You should
be sorry. Sorry for yourself”,
he said and stormed out of
the apartment.

**********
Prisca woke up to the
ringing of her phone. She
looked at the phone and
was a bit surprised but
after checking the time, she
saw that it was past nine.
They always had the habit
of sleeping early ever since
she got married to Tony.
“What’s up girl?” she asked
immediately she picked.
“Prisca…” Belina said over
the receiver with a shaky
voice.
Prisca became fully awake
in an instant. “What is the
matter Bell, have you been
crying?”
“Richard is not back yet, is
he over there?” she asked
“what do you mean he is
not back yet? He is not here.
Have you called him?” she
asked. Tony was already
awake, staring at her
curiously. She put the
phone in speaker and
Belina’s voice filled the
room.
“he left the phone in the
room and I have been
calling him up until I went
into the room and saw his
phone there. Since he left,
he hasn’t returned. I am
scared something might be
wrong with him”, she said
obviously crying.
“relax honey, he’ll be fine.
We would –”she was saying
when she suddenly heard
‘richard’ over the phone
and the phone went dead.

TO BE CONTINUED TOMORROW MORNING
