“Are you expecting….
The bodyguards entered before I could finish
Then his Governor friend, Governor Mark
walked in with his security officers.
“Your excellency Sir” I greeted him.
“How are you Anike” He offered me a
handshake and I took it.
“I’m fine sir, welcome. I’m on my way out
before you came in. Have a nice stay sir”
“Anike, I said you are going no where”
“Prince was going on here, I can tell she had
been crying, look at her face?”
“We had a little misunderstanding…
“What’s this, he sighted the test result and
picked it. “Gabriel is your princess
pregnant?” he asked playfully, though he’s
the funny type.
“I wish” he replied.
He checked the results and told his men to
stand down. They left remaining just the
three of us.
“Prince you have infection! when did you
start playing around”
“Give me the papers Jo, nossy governor. Why
did you even think I was the one playing
around in the first place”
“Cos I know your girl is faithful”
“Anike you really have fans o, Mark even
trusted you more than me his friend. Good
“You won’t understand, in fact I have a
confession to make.
“Well, when you started dating Anike,
I thought she was just some random girl that
you’ll soon give up, so people like us could
have a share too. But when I realized that
you’re still keeping her, Despite the fact that
we pressure you to remarry and you said no.
I decided to know what’s so good about her
that made you stick with her this long.
I know Anike never mentioned what I’m
about to say to you. Because I’m very sure
you would have confronted me if you know
about it” He continued
“I summoned Anike to my guest house one,
she came and I told her I wanted her just for
a night. Just to be sure of what you’re
enjoying so much in her. She told me she’s
not a LovePeddler and I smiled. Everyone has
a price right? So I wrote a cheque of #5M and
gave it to her. She rejected it. “Oh Alawode
has spoilt you with money right” so I thought.
So I wrote her another cheque of #10M
Guess what she did Gab, she tore it and
stormed out of the room. Not scared of what I
could to her. I was dumbfounded. Who rejects
#10M for just one night. Do you now see
reasons why I trusted her?” Gov Mark
Prince was shocked at her friend’s revelation.
“She never mentioned it. Please Mark plead
with her on my behalf, I accused her
wrongly, I was misinformed”
“Gab, you believe a stranger’s words over
“Just beg her for me Mark, I’ve always
trusted her, the result made me accuse her
“Anike… please forgive him hun! You know
he’s deeply sorry, you are is life o, don’t send
him to early grave”
“Anike please…..” he added
“Admiral Gabriel Alawode!” I cut in.
[b]The only thing you can do for me now is to
give me the name of your informant” I said
“Anike leave that to me, I’ll personally deal
with the person”
“Did you hear him, he’s even protecting the
person” I said facing Governor Mark.
“I’m not protecting her, I’m protecting you”
“I don’t need your protection, give me the
name or I’ll leave”
“Anike, he might have his reasons, just let it
go” said Mr Govenor.
“Your excellency, I won’t until he gives me a
“Anike not now”
I picked my bag and thanked the Governor.
“Anike it’s getting late, you don’t have to
“As if you care” I hissed.
“Really As if I care?” He was disappointed at
was I said but I can’t take it back.
“Thank you I can take care of myself” I said
I got into the compound and my instinct told
me to lurk around. He might want to tell the
governor who the culprit was. I walk down to
the side of the house, I stood by the window
side. I peeped and saw him with his phone,
he placed a call. I decided to eavesdrop.
“Happy or whatever you call your self, how
dare you play dirty pranks on me, so you
betrayed your friend! You are as good as
dead.. You will never try such again with her.
I swear on my father’s throne, I’ll make sure
I make your life a living hell” Prince said
with rage and hung up.
“Oh my God! Happy!” I couldn’t hold the
tears not after everything I’ve done for her.
Hi readers, Let’s take a quick break to discuss
lessons learnt from Happy’s case.
I’d like to say one or two things about
Happy’s case before moving on to the next
First and foremost I want so say this, that as
human it’s very difficult for us to celebrate
other people’s success.
Irrespective of gender, There is
99.9‰probability that some of us will do the
same if we found ourselves in Happy’s shoe.
Do you think it’s easy to watch people close
to you succeed while you are still struggling
to get to the top?
Friends will tell you “Congratulations, I’m
happy for you” but the truth is that most of
them don’t mean it, they can only pretend to
Some will not even take any evil step but
deep down they are bittered. Some will even
keep their distance from that successful
More reasons why we must surround
ourselves with good people and stop flaunting
our success on people’s faces. Especially in
this age of social media.
People now runs the affairs of their lives on
social media platforms. There are some things
that needs to be private cos we live in a
Now this is exactly where I’m going. The
question is how can will manage successful
friends around us?
I thought about it and there is just one
answer I could come up with….
It will only take God’s grace to overcome
things like this. Envy is one of the fruit of the
flesh, If you are been controlled by the flesh,
then trust me you’ll found yourself in
Happy’s shoe. We are all quick to judge her
but are we going to do better?
If you are deeply rooted in God’s words then
you can easily overcome the flesh. The bible
“Godliness with contentment is great gain”
When you are not controlled by your flesh,
then you’ll be able to look past other people’s
achievement and hold on to God for a better
tomorrow. The bible says
“He makes all things beautiful in his time”
Your friends are doing great today doesn’t
mean God has forgotten you, your own time
we surely come.
The person that bought a car last year is now
using a old model because the new model is
“The race is not for the swift, nor the battle to the strong but time and chance happens to them all” Eccl 9:11
Putting off another person’s candle won’t make yours shine brighter.
Let’s have the right mindset and the world will be a better place for us to live in.
Thanks, God bless!
