[Story] My Wedding Night Episode 8

“You have to hold on tight dear, we are getting you out in no time. The
detective promised to give you special treatment.
So
just hold on for a little
longer” my brother begged
before leaving with my
dad.
However my day never had
a dull moment because
soon after they left, two of
my colleagues came to see
me as if they cared. I
already knew they simply
came to confirm things
with their eyes, but that’s
one of the things in life we
have no control over.
No matter what we do, we
must have haters, we must
have people who pretend
to care and we also must
have people whose only
motive is to bring you
down.
Later in the afternoon, my
friend Nancy also came to
see me. It really was painful
receiving such visits in a
police cell.
Yea you guys should just
for a moment reflect how it
feels to be receiving your
friends and colleagues, days
after your wedding in a
police cell. Horrible isn’t it??.
Nancy shed real tears on
seeing me, her face
coloured deeply. The shock
in her very apparent.
“I heard Rumours, I never
believed till this very
moment” she said quietly. I
swallowed hard and
nodded.
Nancy was my old time pal.
We attended the same
university, stayed in the
same hostel and did our
Nysc the same time, though
in different states. Her
parents were a bit wealthy
and lived in the capital city.
She returned to live with
them after Nysc while i
came over to live with my
brother. However i was
fortunate to get a good job
while she managed a little
teaching job in her
neighbourhood. We still
remained very close even
after we disagreed over
Damian. She was of the
opinion that i was being
overly ambitious, insisting
that i was throwing away
my life for money. I guess
she was right?, but she
merely objected to my
relationship with Damian
simply because i dropped
my young boyfriend whom
she much preferred, in
order to move on with
Damian.
Yea Justice was the boy’s
name, we were age mates
and equally served {NYSC}
the same time. He was a
good kid but c’mon i
couldn’t waste my future
by waiting for him. He was
even yet to get a job till the
very moment i landed in
the police cell.
Justice had a lot to do
before thinking of settling
down and i couldn’t take
the risk of waiting for him.
At least i was good enough
to keep him till we rounded
up with Nysc unlike some
of my course mates who
dumped their boyfriends to
get married in final year.
“Damian brought only
trouble just like i feared. My
God this is a terrible
Nightmare” Nancy sobbed. I
simply stared at her, not
knowing what to say. But
just that exact second,
detective Jeremiah showed
up with a dark smile.
“you may not like the news
i bear” he announced and
came forward while i
almost fainted with fear…. I
couldn’t bear taking
another bad news.
To be continued.
