At Lagos(in Dozie’s house)

Austin was seen relaxing on a cushion with a frown

face

wen Dozie walked in adjusting his shirt.

“Austin.

food is ready” Dozie said.

“I’m not hungry” Austin replied. Dozie went and sat

beside him.

“You can’t be like this. You have been trying her

number

all day. You have to eat” Dozie said.

“I mean

how can I eat when I haven’t heard from her since I got

down

here. I have no appetite. I need to talk to her” Austin

replied.

“Has it gotten to that?”

“Sure. it has”

“No no no no, let’s I forget. has her number gone through

again today?” Dozie asked.

“Last time her father picked her Call. Her phone has

been

ringing no answer. I even tried calling her with another

number

still no response” Austin said and Dozie laughed. Austin

kept

staring at him wondering what was funny.

“Which

means, you have to try again later. Have you tried

sending

her a text message?” Dozie asked.

“yes about ten of it still no response”

“what’s going on”

“what’s happening?” Austin asked adjusting upright.

“Austin.

I think this whole thing started the day your line was blocked.

I

suspect that her father blocked her line so that there will be

no

communication between the both of you” Dozie said.

“What

in Gods name was he thinking doing such thing?” Austin reasoned.

“He

wants you to come looking for shantel in his house so he will

get

back at you. can’t you get it” Dozie said and Austin concurred.

“what

do I do now?” Austin asked.

“Aww. I think you should not give him that chance. that’s

what

you should do” Dozie replied. Austin buried his face on a pillow

feeling sad.

“Please

I’m looking for Mr. Williams” shantel said.

“Oh, uncle Williams. He moved out after the amrobbering attack

weeks ago” the lady said and shantel’s face changed.

“Three

weeks ago?” shantel asked and the lady nodded.

“Emmm. do

“No.

stopped

and turned back to shantel who was standing there mutely.

“No, no problem…thanks” shantel replied.

“You’re welcome” she replied and moved away. shantel went
