"Zara... There's a lesson I've learnt in my life. When I see something I want, I grab it with both hands, damn the consequences. I saw you Zara, and you captured me. You stole my heart right from my chest. Now I can't stay away from you. And I know that Louis won't be happy about this but I don't give a damn. I want you Zara." --------------------------------------------------- Zara is a learned and beautiful but naive village girl who gets picked from the village by her aunt to the glorious city of Lagos, where the fun never stops. She signed up for the time of her life, which she gets until she gets entangled with the Garba clan, and shit gets real. Meet the Garbas, Aminu and Patrick, same Dad, different mums. Patrick, being the son from the side chick who was supposed to be aborted, has a vendetta against the rest of the dynasty while Aminu the first and legitimate child is doing everything possible to keep Patrick away from the family business and the dynasty. Their attentions are swayed when they see Zara Okafor and all hell breaks loose. ________View More
Aminu. Previously... "Ma'am this is from Mr Garba" he said and gave me a card. "What's that?" Tanna asked. I opened it and smiled "aww it's a note" "Aww. Read it out" she said. So curious for gossip. I giggled. "To my Angel Wife, I remember the day we met. It was then that I knew that I wouldn't let you slip through my fingers. At first sight I knew that you were the one for me. I didn't care about anything else other than being with you from that moment. I just knew I wanted to see you happy. The love I feel for you is strong and eternal. My Queen, you are the light in my life, the air in my lungs. You give me purpose in every way and I am so happy you agreed to be with me forever. Your aura has consumed me and I want to bask in the light that you give for the rest of eternity. Today, we seal the deal and I just wanted to s
Zara Previously... "Sorry ma'am I didn't wasn't to keep you waiting so I had to let you in before they were done." Atafo apologised. "There's no need to apologise. I don't mind" I shrugged. Tanna who had been silent all along tapped me pointing at an armless gown she seemed to like. "That's a really cool design." Tanna said. "Feel free to move around and choose. I'll be waiting for what you decide. You can also have this notepad to write down your thoughts." He said and gave us a notepad. We began our search. The gowns on display were all breathtakingly gorgeous. I was so shook at what Atafo could actually do with those hands of his. I Was already imagining what my wedding dress would look like. "So do you have anything in mind?" Tanna asked me. "Yeah I have an idea of what I want. I want an armless dr
Zara Previously... "Do you miss Greece? We could go back soon if you want." He said taking my hand across the table. "Yeah but we will plan it this time Mimi. No surprises." I warned and he sat up, putting his hand on his chest. "Promise ma'am" he said. "Good. So what are we eating, I'm hungry." I said and took the menu. The dinner date was really fun. We had laughs and talked about everything. Also gossiped about a few of our friends. We basically dissected everything while violating table manners. But we didn't care. Once we were done with our three course meal of exquisite delicacies, as of on cue, music started to play. One of my favorite songs at the moment. Odo by Johnny Drille. "Can I have this dance ma cherie" Aminu held his hand out smiling while I laughed at something he had said earlier.
Zara. Previously... When the police man had chained him to the table and left, Patrick started laughing. "What's funny" I said frowning. "You know, I never ever thought that I would ever see you again in my life" Patrick said, still chuckling. "Well, one last time wouldn't hurt. I used to consider you my friend." I said and folded my arms. "I used to be in love with you you know. Or should I say, infatuated." Patrick said and chuckled. It seemed as though he was finding himself amusing. "I know that" I said. I surprising was not feeling any emotions right now towards him. Everything was well and okay. He didn't disgust me the way Jasmine seemed to. "Yeah and you know I didn't intend to shoot you. I'm really sorry." He said. "I just hope you don't hate me" "I don't Patrick. Have y
Zara Previously... The judge was rested back in his chair, but his face held shock and fear. Probably fear for knowing someone like Jasmine. Aminu who was sat beside me had become furious again and I stroked his arm to calm him which he was responding to well. The silence in the room was deafening for a few seconds before the judge finally spoke again. "Wow, officers, I don't know what you people are waiting for. Cuff her immediately." He said with venom in his voice. The policemen who were stationed in the courtroom went forward and cuf
Zara Previously... Your honor, my client is not guilty of the allegations on him. First of all, this child is legally his son which means he had all the right to have the boy in his custody however, the way it is being narrated is not how it happened. My client went to the Plaintiff's apartment which in his magnanimity he had given her, only to realize that she had run away from the house along with all her belongings leaving just the boy, the nanny and a letter confessing all her crimes against Mr Garba here. My client having a good heart, took the boy into his home even after finding out that the boy is not his. So your honor, this whole case is a lie and shouldn't even have been a case in the first place." My lawyer said and sat down. "Objection my Lord! There is no evidence to back his claim" Jasmine's attorney said.
Aminu. Previously... Almost a week had passed and it was finally the day that we would stand trial with the arbitrator. Aminu had pushed for it because he didn't want the stupid case to taint his brand which was the wise thing to do. The arbitrator would essentially keep everything on a low and not attract press to it. Or so I thought. I hadn't spoken to Aminu even after Tanna's intervention. Now I was ready and I was going to surprise him at the arbitrator's office. There was no way I would leave him to do this alone. I didn't tell Louis because his big mouth would tell Aminu in a heart beat. On getting to the venue for the trial, contrary to my belief, there was a swarm of press people with microphones and cameras at the doors to the building. What the hell? Who told them where it would be. I decided to hide and slip in undetected. I met a secur
Zara. Previously... "Yeah I get it. It's very nice of her though" I said and sighed, rubbing my eyes. "I really miss Zara. And Nas has been crying, he wants to see her. I'm always scared of going home to him because he'll start hounding me with questions and crying again." I said rubbing my face in frustration thinking about how sad Nasir was that Zara wasn't there. "Did he do that when he was brought to your house in the first place. Like did he cry about Jasmine?" Louis with his nosiness asked. "Not at all. It was like he didn't know the difference. Nasir for her was always a tool to use to get what she wanted so I believe they didn't have much of a relationship with each other." I said and sipped my usual glass of whiskey. "Don't worry, she'll come around" he said and his eye twitched. That was something I learnt over the years to look out for if Louis
Aminu. Previously... "Both you and Jasmine will rot in prison, I will make sure of that" I said, gritting my teeth. Anger rose in me and I had to fight of the urge to get my hands around his throat and kill him there and then. But then I had to allow the law take its course and Zara.. she wouldn't be happy with my line of action. "I've accepted my fate brother. I wish I did things better. I probably would get a life sentence or worse, be executed which I'll prefer because a life sentence is a fate worse than death. I have never asked you for anything before but I will do it now because this is a mutual need. Make sure Jasmine goes to jail or dies. That is my only wish." He said this time looking me in the eye. "That's easy. And for what it's worse. If you hadn't betrayed me and had told me about the fact that we were brothers from the onset, I would have accepted you with all the joy in the w
