There’s no better feeling in life than being loved back by someone you love. Falling in love isn’t easy because the feeling has to be mutual with the other party before there can be a relationship. Barbara was relieved to know that Precious had feelings for her too and took the bold step to confess it. What a beautiful thing love is!
On hearing Precious heartfelt confession, Barbara melted because she felt it was all a dream. “Why do you love me?” She asked in a low tone, looking into Precious eyes. He walked closer and held her waist; “Honestly, I have been asking myself that question for a while now but don’t seem to have any answer. There’s just something about you that keeps me coming back. I love your smile, your sense of humour, I love the way you laugh, the way you talk and your personality. I don’t know you too well to give a final verdict on your character but all I can say is that you are someone I feel I can be with. Please let me be your man, friend and lover; I promise not to make you regret letting me into your heart. I love and want you Barbara” Precious said.
There was love in the air and at that moment, all Barbara’s defence were weakened. She couldn’t deny the fact that she wanted Precious as well and would give up anything just to have him kiss her. Just as she stood there confused and thinking of what next to say, Precious leaned forward and planted a soft kiss on her lips.
“I…..I…I love you too” Barbara’s managed to say after the kiss. He smiled and kissed her again and this time around, it was passionate. They held each other tightly and didn’t want to let go of their grip on one another.
As they kissed, Precious could tell that Barbara was naive when it came to intimacy. He noticed the way her whole body suddenly became cold and her hands didn’t stop shaking. Precious heart was glad at the thought of the good choice he made and it made him fall more in love with her.
It was a beautiful night indeed for the two lovebirds as they were now officially together. They talked alittle about their new found relationship and bonded while at it. Precious handed the spare key to Barbara and she blushed as she yanked it off his hand. “Prepare the budget and get back to me before next week Monday because I’ll be travelling on Tuesday” he said and she nodded ‘yes’.
That day was one of the best days of Barbara’s life as she have never truly experienced what being loved felt like. Precious ordered an Uber for her because it was quite late for him to drive Barbara to her house and also return to his. They sadly said ‘Goodnight’ to each other as Precious opened the car door for her to enter. Barbara felt like a queen and wasn’t ready to trade that feeling for anything in the world.
On the ride home that night, Barbara kept smiling and was feeling overly emotional. Due to excess excitement, she picked up her phone and dialed Mandy’s number, so as to break the good news to her. Immediately Mandy picked up, Barbara screamed in excitement; “Oh my God Mandy! Mandy guess what?” She excitedly said, “What’s it again oh” Mandy curiously asked smiling. Never in a thousand years did Mandy ever think that the reason Barbara was happy was due to the fact that Precious, whom she also had feelings for have asked her out.
Mandy was in for a shocker that was about to bring out the worst in her. “Precious asked me out today and it’s not just that, he also gave me a spare key to his house and asked that I take over the furnishing of the entire house. Mandy he even kissed me, Oh my! His lips almost took me to an early grave because the sweetness of it was beyond what I could handle. Mandy I’m finally in love and feel like this is the man I want to give my all to; I love him so much and really want this to work. Mandy I’m in love!” Barbara said with tears in her eyes.
The words that came out of Barbara’s mouth killed Mandy within; she died an instant death and rose again. At that moment, Mandy was numb and dumbfounded as she wasn’t expecting such sudden revelation. After about a minute of being completely silent, she finally summoned strength to speak. “I’m happy for you dear” she said in a low tone and Barbara happily thanked her. If only Barbara knew that her heart was about to be shattered beyond repair by the person she trusted dearly and called her friend, then she would have kept her good news to herself.
When the call ended, Mandy threw her phone hardly on the bed and screamed. She was feeling different things at once and didn’t know which emotion to focus on. There were mixed feelings of pain, jealousy, rage and bitterness. Mandy talked to herself all night and couldn’t get her mind off the sad reality that was right in front of her. “No this can’t be! But I love him too, why can’t I be with him instead? Why do I have to always settle and not have the things I want. I’m sorry Barbara, but I wouldn’t settle this time around” she said.
There and then, Mandy started planning on what her next course of action would be. She was highly desperate and was ready to surrender her dignity if it’s what it would take for her to have Precious.
While Mandy was planning to destroy the beautiful relationship between Barbara and Precision, the two lovebirds waxed even stronger. Mandy kept trying and suddenly got frustrated when her plans weren’t working.
Precious was out of the county for work related purpose, while Barbara spent most of her free time in his house due to the ongoing furnishing project she was handling for him. Having a good heart, Barbara usually invited Mandy over to help with the decorations in the house.
Whenever Mandy was invited, she never hesitated to accept the invitation. Anything that concerned Precious drove her crazy because he was like an addiction to her. Mandy was usually bitter and unhappy whenever she was at Precious house. She died within each time Precious called Barbara and spent hours on he phone with her. “This is supposed to be me and not her, I ought to be the one furnishing this house and having a spare key” Mandy usually said each time she saw Barbara happily engrossed in her furnishing work.
On the other hand, all these envy and bitterness was still unknown to Barbara. She didn’t have any clue that her best friend was seriously unhappy for the beautiful things happening in her life. If only we had the ability to read people’s mind, then I guess Barbara would have clearly seen the danger ahead of her and stop bringing her ‘supposed’ friend into her personal life and relationship. Poor Barbara!
Precious trip was almost due so Barbara spent the night at his place because she still had alot to do. The interior decorator she hired was doing a good job but Barbara still had to be present to supervise them whenever they were working. Fortunately, the house was done before Precious arrival and Barbara was more than excited to show him the good job she had done.
When Precious arrived at the airport, Barbara was there to pick him up with her company car as she had the car to herself to be able to make an important work runs early the next morning. He arrived in the evening so she was closed from work by then and had all the time to spend with her sweetheart.
Immediately Barbara spotted Precious, she ran and jumped on his body. Those watching kept blushing because it was a good sight to behold. Barbara was an overgrown baby and didn’t hold back from showing Precious her playful side. “Welcome welcome welcome! I missed you so much” she happily said. Precious smiled and held her firmly from falling off. “I missed you more and don’t want to be away from you again” he said.
Due to the fact that they were in a public place, Barbara had to get down from Precious body and help him with the bag he was holding. They entered the car and Barbara drove down to his place. When they arrived, she gave him a piece of cloth to blindfold his eyes. Precious obediently tied his eyes with the cloth before alighting from the car.
Barbara held him as they walked inside the house just so he doesn’t fall. They finally entered inside and she asked if he was ready and he nodded ‘yes’. She gently unwrapped the cloth from his eyes and revealed the beautiful new furnishing she had done over the weeks.
On seeing the transformation, Precious was awed and truly impressed by the beautiful work his baby had done. “You are so sweet baby, you are a genius. Thanks alot for making me unable to recognise my house anymore” he said and Barbara laughed. “Do you like it?” She asked, “Of course I love it” he excitedly replied. They hugged each other tightly and kissed afterwards.
It was time for Barbara to leave but Precious wanted her to stay. She couldn’t because she had important work appointments the next day. They sadly bid each other goodbye and parted ways afterwards. Precious was genuinely happy that Barbara was his and thanked God for helping him make the right choice.
As these two lovebirds were excited for their new found love, Mandy on the other hand was thinking of how to ruin everything and eventually make her way into Precious heart. The fact that she had his number and knew where he lived was a deadly advantage to her.
One fateful night, Mandy stopped by at Precious house unannounced. She knew Barbara wasn’t there because she called to confirm where she was before making the move. When she got to the estate gate, the security men there already knew her and probably thought she was with Barbara as usual. They let her in without questioning and the Uber she came with headed straight to Precious house.
When Mandy arrived, she knocked on the door as the house didn’t have a gate. After several knocks, the door opened and Precious came out wearing his night robe.
One look at Mandy and his heart skipped a beat because he was confused on what she was doing in his house at such an ungodly hour. The worst of it all was the sexually appealing short gown she was wearing. Precious needed God’s intervention indeed.
“Hello Mandy, what’s going on? Is everything Ok with Barbara?” He confusingly asked and before he knew why was happening, Mandy planted a hot kiss on his lips.
End of episode 5 😉
Stay tuned this evening to see what happened next.
Tear Drops (episode 6)
There’s nothing hidden that wouldn’t be revealed, it’s just a matter of time before the truth eventually surface. The heart of man is desperately wicked indeed and Mandy unfortunately did well in proving it right. It’s extremely disheartening and heartbreaking that she could stoop so low by going to Precious house unannounced, thereby totally neglecting her friends feelings. She never for once considered how Barbara would feel if she found out what she was up to; I guess Mandy wasn’t thinking things through at all and it’s sad that she let her envy get the best of her. What a best friend indeed!
The kiss Mandy gave to Precious was unexpected as he didn’t see that coming even in a thousand years. Immediately she kissed him, he was shocked and furiously pushed her away. “What in God’s name is wrong with you? How dare you come to my house and kiss me, who even told you I live here?” Precious flared up.
At that point, Mandy was scared because it clearly looked like things weren’t going in the direction she thought it would. There and then, she broke down and started tearing up bitterly. As tears fell off her eyes, Precious became confused and didn’t know what next to do. He stretched his hands and gently touched her shoulders; “I’m sorry if I was a little too harsh on you” he managed to say but Mandy wasn’t showing any sign that she was going to stop crying anytime soon.
The atmosphere suddenly became awkward as Precious didn’t know exactly how to get out of the situation he unfortunately found himself in. Unable to stop her from crying, he managed to persuade her to enter inside his house so the scene wouldn’t draw the attention of his neighbours.
It’s quite unfortunate that Precious couldn’t read through Mandy to figure out what she was up to. At that moment, all he wanted was for her to stop crying because he was quite an emotional person. On the other hand, Mandy was relieved within because it finally seemed like her ill plan was gradually coming to pass.
When they entered inside, Precious made her settle down in his living room and went inside the kitchen to get water for her to drink. Immediately he left, she smiled and hailed herself for a job partly done.
Shortly after, Precious walked back in with a bottle of water and handed it over to Mandy. “Now, can you tell me why you are here?” He asked, “I’m here because I love and want you” she shamelessly said. Precious was extremely shocked because he knew quite alright that Mandy was Barbara’s ‘supposed’ best friend. What a shocker indeed!
“Are you sure you’re ok, aren’t you Barbara’s friend and I presume you know we are dating, how can you come in here to utter such trash” Precious said. Mandy smiled faintly and looked into his eyes; “You can say whatever you want to say about me but all I know is that I wouldn’t hold back my feelings for you. Listen, there’s nothing Barbara can give you that I can’t equally give to you; matter of fact, I’m even doing you a big favour” she bluntly said.
In everything Mandy said, the only thing that struck Precious was when she mentioned that she was doing him favour. He kept wondering what she meant by that so he had to interrupt her. “What do you mean by you’re doing me a favour?” He curiously asked, “Now that you have asked, I have no choice than to answer. Mandy can’t give you the things I can give to you. She’s dull, naive and dumb, and believe me when I say you would get bored before you even know it. All the men she has dated in the past ran away from her because of this. I know she’s my friend but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t tell you the truth. Precious I’m a complete package and believe me when I say you wouldn’t regret any decision you take to be with me. I’ll leave now, take as much time to think about me and call me when you are ready to be with someone that would bring out the man in you” she said.
As Mandy got up to leave, she placed her hand on Precious manhood and rubbed it gently. He knocked her hands off but she already knew she had succeeded in messing up his mind.
That evening was a disturbing one indeed for Precious because he couldn’t get his mind off his encounter with Mandy. “How on earth did she know my house?” He soberly wondered. Everything Mandy said sank into his head and kept popping up in his mind, no matter how hard he tried to shut it down. She succeeded in greatly messing up his mind and he unfortunately wallowed in thoughts all night.
On the other hand, Mandy felt both scared and excited; she was scared because she feared Precious would tell Barbara all that happened and also felt happy because she felt her plans were gradually coming in play. She crossed her heart that what happened would remain between herself and Precious alone.
The next day, Precious indirectly inquired from Barbara to find out how Mandy knew where he lived. They were having dinner in his house after a long day at work when he popped the question. “Baby, did your friend come here to work with you while I was away?” He curiously asked, “Yes babe she did, she helped me with the decorations while you were away” Barbara said without suspecting anything. Precious figured the truth and immediately waived the decision.
As time when on in their relationship, Precious began to realise all that Mandy said to him the day she made the surprise visit to his house. He figured that Barbara was quite naive when it came to love making and didn’t improve no matter how much he tried to teach her. Despite that, he wasn’t bothered much and didn’t see it as enough reason to leave a woman he dearly loved.
In as much as Precious was trying to be a real man, he was still human and had his own weaknesses. There were times he wanted to feel like a real man but Barbara wasn’t up to the task in such occasions. He learnt to deal with such situations whenever they arose and always tried to look at the better side of his relationship with Barbara. Well, unfortunately not for long!
One fateful day, Precious came back from a trip and called Barbara immediately he landed at the airport and told her to meet up with him for dinner at a popular restaurant they usually hung out in. Unfortunately, Mandy was with Barbara and she insisted to follow her for the dinner date. Without informing Precious, Barbara invited her and they zoomed out to the restaurant.
They arrived and sighted Precious sitting handsomely on a seat at the other end of the restaurant. Barbara happily ran and gave him a hug. Immediately Precious set his eyes on Mandy, his heart skipped several beats. He kept wondering why Barbara would bring her there but immediately realised that he never confined in her on what Mandy did to him few weeks back.
Mandy figured he was uncomfortable seeing her there and smiled mischievously towards him. “Hi Precious” she greeted, “Hey, how are you doing?” He asked and she said ‘fine’. Barbara who was unaware of everything that was going on, sat on Precious laps and wrapped her hands on his neck as she tried to catch up with all that happened while he was away on his business trip.
The food was finally served and everyone ate quietly. While they ate, Precious had to excuse himself to the restroom and after few seconds, Mandy also excused herself to go to the restroom.
While in the restroom, Precious faced the mirror and bent his head in deep thoughts. Just as he was lost in thoughts, a hand held him from behind and when he turned to see who was holding him, it was Mandy!
“Stop this! What is wrong with you? Do you want to ruin my happy relationship with Barbara” He furiously asked but Mandy wasn’t even ready to answer his question. She locked the door and pushed him on the wall and locked her lips with his.
Precious was trying his best not to give in but Mandy was honestly irresistible. She was hot and had the body that could set any man’s eyes ablaze. They kissed passionately for a while and had to stop because Barbara was waiting for them back at the restaurant. “Here’s my house address, come for more if you want” Mandy said as she typed her address on her phone and sent to him. She hurriedly arranged her clothes and went back to be with Barbara before Precious came afterwards.
They stayed a little longer before leaving the restaurant. Precious dropped the ladies off at Barbara’s house before heading to his. On his way to his house, he couldn’t get his mind off his affair with Mandy and deeply wanted more.
Halfway into the journey, he turned back the car and gave Mandy a call. “Are you back to your house?” He asked, “Yes I’m home. it’s an apartment, so come to the second floor and knock on the door on your left” she said and Precious ended the call afterwards.
In less than 20 minutes, there was a knock on Mandy’s door and she smiled and went to open it; Lo and Behold, it was Precious leaning handsomely on her door frame.
She looked into his eyes and said “Hey baby, come to mama!”.
