"remember to say nothing on how you got her number to anyone, for your own good" I added as I called out Jenifer's phone number for her.

Surprisingly Irene was a much better actress than I expected.
She brought down her voice to a very mild manner as she apologized to Jenifer.

The phone was on speak out, enabling me to listen
"I'm a good Christian and I don't believe in fighting
My fellow woman for a man. I just did my confession this morning and apologized to God,
So forgive me as well.

Tony my fiancee is all yours. You can
Have him " she rounded up with those touching words,

"Please wait a minute " we heard Jenifer
Suddenly beg.

"Please can we meet? "she asked Irene who instantly looked at me.

I shook my head.
"no we can't meet. I can't bear seeing you"
 she answered.

"very well then. It's cool but I advice you figure out things with your fiancee.
He lied to me but it's over now. I don't have anything to do with him
So try and fix things with him "she
Responded and hung up,
Leaving Irene beaming with joy.

"Yes! "she screamed happily.

"Jackpot!  So easy! "
I smiled.
"Jenifer is now mine "
I breathed with satisfaction closing my fist.

"Now listen to me and listen good.
 Go home and wait for my orders.
Don't dare act on your own, if you are serious about getting back Tony " I seriously said to Irene who nodded in agreement.

"Fine, I can assure you that Tony will be fully yours when I'm done with my plans " I promised Irene,
Who smiled in appreciation.

Early the next day, I headed over to Jenifer's house to check on her.
Of course my grand plan was going as I wanted which made me very relaxed and happy.

Jenifer welcome me into her apartment
With a simple smile on her face, softening my heart with a simple gesture of acceptance.

 Before this moment She
Hardly welcomed me with a smile and so seeing the welcoming smile on her face that morning brought up my hopes to an amazing level.
"I hope you are fine?
I asked innocently.
She shrugged, saying nothing.

" I know we got off in a very unpleasant manner but I beg you to forget about it all.
Let's just focus on your happiness, I know I'm the last person you expect to trust.
But please trust me "I appealed calmly.
"It's okay Emeka. I see you as a good person, at least I do owe you a lot for opening my eyes to Tony's deception.
Plus the advice you have been giving free of charge. I do appreciate and I value you a
Lot "
she replied to my surprise.

"I asked Tony to be here by 7pm. I will be giving him my decision by that time.
I will like you to be present as well "
she announced, surprising me further with her words.

"Yea I will make my decision today. You will be the witness "
she concluded.

I was speechless as I stared at her...

Hmmm many questions was just running through my mind,
hope Jenifer will not open up,  what is this girl up to?

I couldn't concentrate on anything, after leaving Jenifer's apartment that fateful morning.
I couldn't wait to know the decision she was going to make.

My hopes were up and so were my fears.
It was a fify_fity chance.
By 6 pm I managed to drag myself to Tony's house.
He was glad and pleased to see me,
Without much ado,  he pour out his feelings to me,
" Jenifer asked me to show up at her apartment by 7 pm  with you.

I don't know why she's trying to judge me
Without listening to my defence. She is not been fair at all.
She's really taking things too far "
he complained bitterly.

"Tony calm down,  I know you got a point, but I know her to be a level headed girl. I believe she's inviting you to hear your views,
Moreover you do know I have been talking to her " I said convincingly.

" Emmy,  I pray so, because I can't stand another surprise. I just
Can't "
he broke down sadly.

"But what if she chooses to be unreasonable, will you keep fighting for her? " I asked.
"Of course not! 
Yes I do love Jenifer but I won't continue fooling myself like a school boy, if she insists on being

I simply will marry Irene and say goodbye to bachelorhood.
"Believe me, iwill do it " He poured out seriously,
While I smile with satisfaction.

The worst enemy anyone can ever get is a bad friend.
