Purity shifted her gaze from his. “Yes, I mean it.”
“What now makes my cousin different from me?” He wasn’t letting go easily.
She smiled on hearing that question. “Everything about him is different. The way he talks, walks, eats. The manner he treats me is so much romantic.”
Ernest frowned deeply. “You are just fantasizing about those things. He might be kind to you now, for a reason. Who know he might change after having you on his bed?”

“What is your problem? Why do you want to make Jeremy a devil to me?”
“‘Cause we men are all the same. We have different tactics of getting the woman we want. Jeremy is just lying and I’m telling you the truth.”
“You’re a big liar. Jeremy would never do that.”
“He’s a womanizer. Different women has slept with him. Why do you think he’ll change for you?”
Jeremy glanced at his gold chain wrist watch for the fifth time. A frown creased his forehead. Where the hell is Purity? His eyes searched the entire ball room as he half heartedly listened to what the brothers were saying. His mind was all about Purity. He really wanted to be with her. They were the couple celebrating and had to be together. Where did she disappear to? Had the restroom swallowed her or what? Its been over twenty minutes. He prayed she hadn’t fainted again. She should be fine. He inhaled deeply.
Rodney noticed his anxiety. “Hey, Jeremy what’s wrong?”
“Have you been listening to my story?” Ronald enquired, he saw the lines formed on Jeremy’s face.
Jeremy sighed. “Honestly, I’ve not and I’m not fine. Purity, she’s taking too long.”
The twins laughed.
“She’s gonna come soon. Are you scared she’s gonna disappear?”
Jeremy stared at Ronald with eyes full of pity, as if he was going to cry.
“Come on, she’ll be back soon. Don’t cry.”
It was Jeremy’s turn to laugh. “Thank you so much? It was nice meeting you two.” He briefly shook hands with them. “I’ve got to find her. I should have followed her.”
“All the best.”
Jeremy nodded and left them.
“What’s wrong with him?”
“He’s in love with our Purity.”
Ronald smiled. “I’m glad she found someone like him. They deserve eachother.”
“Come, lets go chat with dad and mum, I’ve missed them.”
“So have I.” Rodney led the way.
Jeremy walked briskly towards the ladies restroom. He so much needed to find Purity. He had never been in one before, but he would just because of his Purity. He’s missing her and wants to see her, to gaze into those lovely eyes. That stubborn woman, where could she have disappeared to? He finally got to the door. As he reached out for the door knob, a voice stopped him.
“If I were you, I wouldn’t do that.”
He dropped his hand. He knew that voice.
“Tricia, what are you doing here?”
She smiled. “I should be asking you that. What were you about to do? Go into the ladies room?”
Jeremy scratched his head.
That, she admired.
“I mean in my house. This party, what are you doing here?”
She rolled her eyes and bit her lips seductively. “I came with an invited guest. I’m his date. Ernest.”
“Ernest? My cousin?” What was Ernest doing with Tricia-his ex. Does he even know that?
“Whoa!” Tricia exclaimed. “He’s your cousin?” She was glad.
“Yes.” He had to focus on his aim. “I’m searching for my fiancee, did you by any chance see her? Is she in there?” he pointed at the door of the restroom.
Tricia chuckled. “I did, I think I saw her come out with someone.”
“Do you know where she is?”
She smiled and licked her lips. “I do. Can take you there if you want.”
Seconds later, they were up at the balcony. From there, its possible to see the entire vicinity. Tricia paced, as if searching for something. Her eyes lit up in joy as she saw what she had been looking for.
“What are we doing up here?” Jeremy was confused and disturbed at the same time.
“You’ve got to see this.”
Jeremy walked up to Tricia and saw what she asked him to see.
She hid her smile. “That’s the virgin you left me for. Look what she’s doing.”
