Nothing Like Love Episode 2
Aunty mophy pulled off the leather she had tied her hands with before applying relaxer on the customer’s hair.She owned a small saloon, which she was her only means of survival. She turned to look at Tare who had been moody since she joined her in the saloon
Tare, you don’t look bright at all? what’s the problem?
Aunty, it nothing.
Are you sure? or is it because the lecture didn’t hold?
Not that, nothing is wrong with me.
Okay,please help me with the comb over there, she pointed at the container that contained several colours of comb.
That night, Tare couldn’t sleep she soaked her bed with tears, her aunt had noticed when she had woken up to urinate.
Tare, what’s it? I noticed you’ve been moody all day and now you are crying, please dear talk to me.
Aunty, is it a crime to be poor?
I see, that’s why you are crying?
She narrated her ordeal at school to her aunt who encouraged and comforted her.
Vanessa hit her roomate angrily
Wake up, are you seeing the time?
Mitchell opened her eyes and stressed her body, what na?
chel, I don’t know your problem today, can you see it 9am already and we have lectures by 9.30.
oh my Gosh, I slept very late,please give me few minutes.
Am giving you less than 5minutes, by the way what where you doing that you slept late..Vanessa said following her to the bathroom.
I was thinking of my prince charming.
Which prince charming, don’t tell me you accepted Godfrey back after all he did to you.
Not at all girlfriend,am not that dump (puting on the shower)
So which prince charming again? Please fill me in.
Tare took the first seat, she was more determined to make it im life, if she was rich no human being could stamp on her feet as it pleases them.After lectures she went to the library to study ahead so she could answer questions in the next class.
shhh, guys please keep your voice down i can’t hear a thing.Richard begged the two guys who sat beside him.

Yeah I know, but half bread is better than known. Richard said
yeah am moses, he brought his hand and shaked Richard’s.
Am Richard Ayiba-emi.
don’t tell me you are the son of Ayiba-emi the second guy spoke for the first time.
Yeah, well I have to tell you am his son.
Really, then what are you doing here? your father lives money. By the way am samson.
Well, am not too sure the old man has his reason.
The lecture had ended and most of the students have started walking out, Richard didn’t know if he regretted or not because he didn’t understand a thing of what the lecturer had said.
Awwww, you look gorgeous chell
Thanks,she said blushing
I bet all the guys will get lost looking at you tonight.
you are always a flaterer vanesa
Am for real here.
Mitchell wore a wine dress that stops a little above her knee, with her hair parked in a ponytail, she looked no different from barbie.
she picked her phone that had been ringing non-stop and placed it on her left ear.
We have to be somewhere van, come with me.
To where? what’s the problem?
Michell ignored her questions and led the way to her car.She drove at an high speed till she got to her destination.
wait for me, I’ll be back shortly she said to Vanessa and fastened her footsteps inside the storey building.
Vanessa followed suit after some minites.
Mum, please stop crying
Mitchell i want my son, I want my baby boy
Mum, you have to accept his gone,I should be your only focus now.
No, I can’t take it anymore I need my son.i know his alive.cheal’s mum stood up and threw the teddybear she was holding away..
I need my son, and this is not my son.Mitcheal couldn’t take it anymore she started crying.
oh my baby, am sorry i threw you away, mummy is sorry.She took the teddybear and hugged it closely to her chest.
Vanessa ran back to the car, just when Mitchell stood up to leave. she had been eavesdropping
Mitchell’s mum had been in the psychiatric hospital but Mitchell had never mentioned it to her.she had always lied her mum was in Canada because of some business.
Vanessa turned the stereo acting like she had been listening to music all along
Hey did I take so long?
Nope, have been enjoying myself here .
okay she said softly.
So where are we heading?
To the party, have you forgotten am all dressed for it.
Yeah I know, but I don’t feel too good about the party,we weren’t even invited you know.
That’s not your problem vanessa, all is taken care of. She increased the music and drove off.
Vanessa couldn’t believe how Mitchell handled her problems without giving anyone a clue of what’s bothering her.She had been friends with her for 2years but never got to know her mother had been in the psychiatric, what else could she be hiding.
Richard turned to stare at the goddess in human form (Mitchell) she looked extremely beautiful to be called just a human. Mitchell returned the gaze,as their eyes locked in what only them could explain. Mitchell body grew weak as Richard took closer steps to where she stood.
You are not from this planet i guess? Chell was lost in her own thoughts to answer his question.
Can someone be this handsome she almost blurted out.
Wow, I need to make call to heaven to tell them am with their missing angel.
Chell blushed, unable to hide her excitement
So am Richard Ayiba-emi, he said and stressed out his hand.
Michell Yakubu.she took his hand.
What’s a pretty lady doing all alone by herself in a party.
Hum, am not alone i came with my friend, but she’s somewhere around.
Okay, care for a dance?
Yeah sure, by the way happy birthday Richard.
Thank you beautiful. she held her hands as they made for the dance floor.
