Title: “The Double Betrayal”
That sunny afternoon, Amara found herself sitting in her favorite neighborhood bar in the commercial city of Aba, enjoying a cold bottle of Star Radler. As usual, the bar was almost empty since it was midday. As she enjoyed her drink, she struck up a conversation with the bar owner, Mazi Osondu, a wise middle-aged man with a mischievous smile.
Mazi Osondu leaned in closer, intrigued by Amara’s story, and listened intently as she recounted the tale of her sister, Chioma. He couldn’t help but chuckle at the events that unfolded.
You see, Chioma always seemed to have luck on her side. She had been dating a kind-hearted Kalabari man named Oba. He worked offshore and had been her rock, supporting her financially through university and fashion school. Their love had blossomed, and Oba proposed to Chioma in 2021.
Amara paused, shaking her head in disbelief. “And you know what, Mazi? Chioma rejected the proposal without any good reason!”
Mazi Osondu’s eyebrows shot up in surprise, mirroring the incredulity etched on Amara’s face. He took a moment to let the situation sink in before responding, his voice tinged with amusement.
“No beatings, no verbal abuse, and not even an issue with his, um, special department? What in the world was she thinking, my dear Amara?”
Amara chuckled, nodding in agreement. “That’s exactly what I said! Chioma simply claimed she didn’t love him anymore and wasn’t ready to settle down.”
Mazi Osondu let out a hearty laugh, his voice echoing through the bar. “Well, well, isn’t love a mysterious thing? So, what happened next?”
Amara’s eyes gleamed mischievously as she continued her tale. “Oh, it gets better, Mazi Osondu! Oba, heartbroken and determined to move on, decided to relocate abroad.”
Mazi Osondu raised an eyebrow, curious to know what happened next. “And did Chioma ever regret her decision?”
Amara’s smile faded, and her voice lowered. “Years passed, and Chioma finally realized her mistake. She desperately needed Oba’s help to relocate abroad, this time with her new boyfriend.”
Mazi Osondu shook his head in disbelief. “The audacity! And did Oba come to her rescue?”
Amara’s eyes twinkled mischievously. “He did, but not without a plan B. He demanded a substantial amount of money for their traveling expenses.”
Mazi Osondu chuckled, imagining Oba’s clever retaliation. “And did Chioma and her new boyfriend pay up?”
“Oh, they did, Mazi Osondu,” Amara replied, her voice laced with a mix of amusement and pity. “Her new boyfriend even sold two plots of land and his beloved car to gather the funds.”
Mazi Osondu’s laughter filled the bar once more. “Ah, karma can be quite the troublemaker, can’t it?”
Amara nodded, her eyes filled with a touch of remorse. “Indeed, Mazi Osondu. It’s a lesson for us all. We should be careful not to hurt others, for not everyone knows how to forgive and forget.” As the sun began to go down, casting a golden glow over the bustling streets of Aba, Amara and Mazi Osondu shared a knowing smile. In this tale of love, betrayal, and unexpected twists, they had learned that sometimes, life had a way of teaching the most unforgettable lessons.
