After that incident at Best Global, I hadn't been myself. I felt like committing suicide but whenever it came to my mind, I always thought about my parents, my friends and everyone around me.
I had to take one week absent leave from the hospital. Thanks to Cassandra and Alex, they took turn to take care of me. Alex had been so supportive. He took me out almost everyday.
Today being Friday, we settled for the cinema to watch movie, but before that he said we should do some window shopping.
So we ended up going to Ikeja City Mall. But something happened, we saw Eric and Annabelle and I lost interest immediately. They walked up to us upon seeing me.

TARA'S POVSaturday came really fast. I was anxious because I didn't want to get emotional. Cassandra wouldn't fail to remind me since Tuesday that she would take care of my outfit.She said and I quote 'Omotara, you have to dress to kill on that day, so that he would know what he had lost.' That explained why she was here.Cassandra picked a crop top and a denim jacket with a high waist jeans trouser. She applied little makeup on my face with a gloss on my lips.I matched my outfit with a silver heels and black shade. I sprayed myself my Nautica Perfume and set to go but not without looking at the mirror. I was so in love with myself...Simple but Classy."Not sure yet, but if at all am leaving, I will call you." She said finally"Ok babe." I said while leaving the houseI picked my car keys and drove to the venue.

ERIC'S POVRECAPI was so angry at Anabelle but I had to conceal it from Tara so that it would not ruin our lunch date.After the date, I dropped her at the foundation and drove to my father's mansion instead of going back to the company....I hoped and prayed that he would be at home.I arrived there some hours later and drove into the compound, his car was there."Thank goodness, he is at home."

But I really love teddy bears.I did my prayers and went to the bathroom to freshen up.
