‘who is she?’
‘she’s Ximena Valdez, my secondary school girlfriend’
‘how come she was your girlfriend? I thought she was from Mexico’
‘she is from Mexico. Her father was a contractor and so he lived here with his wife and two kids, Ximena and Dario. However, when her father died, they left the country’
‘wow. You loved her?’
‘she was my life, then. I loved her with all my heart, and with all my body and my soul. She was the best thing that has ever happened to me’
‘so i guess you were shattered when they went back to Mexico right?’
‘uhm, not really. We were already broken up before she left the country’
‘she cheated on me. I mean, she broke up with me for another guy’
‘were you guys ever intimate?’
Tony pinched her cheek playfully ‘you never told me you were going to interview me on my past ove life’
Alice chuckled ‘tell me. I want to know everything about you my sweetie’
‘are you scared i might dump you for her?’
‘i would be lying if i said no’
‘well then, you dont need to be scared. Ximena is my past and you are my present and my future’
Alice shrugged ‘okay, but just know that no matter what, i love you and i will always do’
‘oh! Did i tell you? She’s staying at my house’
‘what nonsense! Why?’
Ximena sat outside, under a tree in the hospital, with tears in her eyes. She didnt know her way back, she would have gone.
She thought Tony loved her. She thought that he would never be able to live without her in his life because he had loved her so much then.
She had loved him too but stupidity got the better part of her. Coupled with the fact that their break up was all arranged.
Vanessa destroyed her relationship with Tony and God help her, she must destoy Tony’s relationship with Alice. Its payback time
But could she really destroy another woman’s joy? Alice wasnt Vanessa. That she lost Tony was because of Vanessa and not Alice, she knew what she went through when she found out Vanessa and Elvis planned everything, to get her confused and separate she and Tony. And she didn’t want any other woman to go through that same pain.
No, she wasnt going to do anything. If ever she wants revenge, she would just find Vanessa and Elvis, and of course she must find them, they’ve caused her alot of pain.
But she was going to remain with Tony for a while, to see if his new relationship would last, and she prayed it wouldnt. She didnt want it to. She wanted an opportunity.
She was so tempted to do something nasty, really nasty. Like seducing Tony or driving a knife into the girl’s heart.
She chuckled quietly, that was absurd. No matter how bitter she was, she could never kill her fellow human being. Oh! How she wished she had Fernanda’s kind of heart, she was sure Alice woud have died the instant she went into Tony’s arms.
She wasnt going to do anything though.
She would just pray. Pray their relationship does not work and pray for a second opportunity with Tony. She stood up, wiped her tears and walked back into the hospital.
She found Tony and Alice talking, she didnt know if it was serious or or not but went to them anyways.
‘hey,’ she called softly ‘i’m so sorry for the show i put up earlier. I was…’ she raked a hand on her waist long blonde air ‘kind of jealous. You know i…..’ she let out a humourless laugh ‘i have a thing for Tony,’ she was talking to Alice now ‘i mean who wouldnt? He’s handsome, hardworking, intelligent, selfless but to mention a few. I’m sorry for acting bitchy earlier. It wasnt me there’
Alice loved her accent, so sweet and her blonde air as well, and for the first time she wished she wasnt from Nigeria. She admired everything about this lady, her ocean blue eyes, her hair, her skin colour, she subconciously looked at her skin, she hated her chocolate skin. This woman was pretty, that was why she didnt trust her with Tony. She was an epitome of beauty and for the first time, she thought herself ugly. She was envious of Ximena Valdez, a mexican.
‘its alright Ximena, can i call you Ximmy?’ Alice asked looking at Tony.
Ximena chuckled ‘geez! I’d love that. You see when honeypie and i…i mean Tony and i were dating, he called me Ximmy. I love that name alot and for a while, i’ve really missed being called that. So yes, call Ximmy and i will call you Ally’
Alice laughed ‘oh whatever, call me Ally, call me Allie, i will answer you’
Ximena stretched her hands forward with a smile ‘a hug?’
‘sure,’ Alice said standing up. They hugged.
You are so proud of yourself Alice, i dont know if i should try to hurt you or not, Ximena thought.
Tony watched them with a smile. No doubt they were going to be great friends.
He looked ahead of them and saw two police officers, he frowned.
‘good day mr Brown,’ one of the policemen greeted and Ximena and Alice disengaged.
‘i’m looking for miss Alice Tarulba’
‘here i am officer’ Alice replied.
‘i am Sergeant Matthew,’ he showed her his card ‘and you are under arrest for the murder of one Amaka Wilson and for the attempted murder of Maria Brown’
