How dumb can I be!
Why the hell didn’t I see this coming?
Silas! I call out to one of my friends standing behind me. The other one just remains quiet with his head bowed down.
Dammy, I know.
He tries to pull me away but I wriggle myself free and fall back at the base ot the headstone. My body shaking like a leaf threatened to be torn down by the wind.
Dammy, Silas calls out, pain diluted with regret in his voice.
You need to be a man about this.
She’s gone, forever.
Not my Mae.
After several replays of this scenario, I reluctantly agree to follow them. Amidst the sobbing, I take one last glance at the headstone, can’t clearly see it because of my short sightedness but I know what’s clearly written on it.

She loved the Lord
And she’s gone to meet him
Don’t feel sorry for me. Don’t.
What you should be feeling now should be hatred because I threw away my most priced possession, my jewel, but you wouldn’t understand. Let me make you.
It all started two months ago.
Actually, it started one year ago.
The day she walked into my office and asked for help. She looked so fragile, so sweet.
If only I knew there was a devil lurking behind that smile,
Shortly after Dee’s declaration of her love for me, I chose to keep my distance. It wasn’t easy as first, but I got better at it. Remember it started with this call;
We have to stop this,
Dammy, what’s wrong?
We need to stop talking. We need to stop chatting. Your last consultation is the last I’ll ever grant you cos I need you out of my life.
Dammy.. She sounded desperate
You shouldn’t be. Let’s talk this like adults.
You should have considered that before you tried to ruin my life.
Dammy, this is not fair. I was in love… No… Am in love with you. How is confessing my love a crime?
I could hear her crying already.
Not considering who I was with when you made the statement is your crime.
Dee, I mean, Tola, I can’t even consider calling you Dee anymore, not that it matters at all,
This is goodbye from me.
And that was the end.
I never heard from Dee again;
No calls, no messages, nothing.
And I got back to Mae, or Feyi if you don’t mind, Mae was the nickname I gave her.
We got closer, loved more, played more and all seemed well. It even got better when I proposed to her. We were supposed to marry this coming saturday.
So, we got our marriage preparations underway quickly. Both our families were delighted. Even Feyi’s sister started to like me.
Everything looked so perfect;
The wedding preparations were on point, friends and families showed their love and total support, there were no hitches, no issues, and most importantly no Dee.
But this perfect picture was about to go totally wrong.
2 weeks to the wedding, Mae told me about her friend coming from America that were going to stay over at our house. She said it was just for the wedding period. I shouldn’t have accepted but I said yes.
Soon, the friend arrived and I was reading in the study when they stepped in.
Dammy, Mae called out.
Are you home? I brought my friend o!
Coming! I replied as I smiled, removed my reading glasses and went to the sitting room.
I entered the sitting room and was rooted to the spot when I saw the lady my bride to be called her friend;
De..e?! I stuttered as I tried to recover from the shock.
What are you doing here?
Dammy! Mae exclaimed
Is that how you treat a guest?
And who’s this Dee you keep talking about?
She came over and pecked me on the cheek before she introduced me to the lady that was to ruin her life.
Meet my best friend in high school, Tola.
Hey Dammy. The devil grinned.
You didn’t tell me he was a stunner, Feyi.
Stop it jor! Mae replied already blushing.
At least, don’t say it in his front, he’ll not let me rest now. She giggled
You should have even met him before, I gave you his contact when you wanted to get over your hatred for boys, why didn’t you give him a call?
Oh! That.. She threw a glance that looked like a threat at me and I shivered in fear as to what she might have been thinking.
It dosent matter, I’ve gotten over it. was her final reply.
I still didn’t move a muscle. My imagination played out different ways in which this whole situation could turn out and none were good for Mae.
Dee was back and under the same roof too.
I could already smell trouble.
Soon enough, she showed what her intention for coming was. Dee hadn’t come to rejoice with us, she had come to break us apart.
Days on end, she tried seducing me.
And one after the other, I rejected her advances. A couple of times, she ended up with a swollen face. It was so funny when she was explaining to Mae the allergies she had to a particular insect that caused the swelling. I always tried hard not to laugh at this point and many times I lost and left Mae puzzled as to what might be fascinating me about CNN.
Three nights to the wedding and my biggest test from Dee was yet to come. Mae had to stay over at her aunt’s place and called to tell me that I was gonna be alone with the devil herself. Stepping into the house was scary on its own and I wasn’t disappointed when I did. There, in the center of my sitting room was my last test and it was wearing a sexy black lingerie.
Damn, you’re sexy. I muttered under my breath and I suddenly remembered how to pray as she advanced towards me, slowly but surely.
Don’t fight it. She said before she planted a kiss on my lips. She knew what was on my mind and she smiled in triumph.
I know you want me. You always have. She knelt down and as she unzipped my trousers, I saw a portrait of Mae and I in the far corner. We looked so happy. She looked so happy. I smiled and said;
Stop it. Still shocked, I walked away from her as calm as I could to my room leaving her speechless where she knelt. As I was about to shut the door; I congratulated her on an almost successful mission.
Good try, Dee
But I aint losing Mae for just that.
And I quickly shut the door and threw the key somewhere I wouldn’t find it easily before my already hardened (you know what) made me pay for my pride and trust me, I prayed till the next morning.
The night before the wedding soon came and I had to work late to put things in order before I left for my honeymoon with the love of my life. After all the tests, last night, I had stayed strong.
I had won and Dee had lost.
As I packed to leave for home, my phone rang. The caller, Silas and he broke the news that broke my will.
Hello. I still remember the urgency in his voice.
Silas, what’s wrong? I asked, already fearing the worst.
Its Feyi….. Feyi’s dying….
Where are you?
I’m at the Island Hospital, that one you use.
Get here now!
I’m on my way
I left all I was doing and rushed to the hospital and saw my bride almost lifeless, foaming and shivering violently. My Mae was dying and all I could do was watch and cry.
The nurses pulled me out of the theatre and I had one last glimpse of my Mae fighting for her life.
Autopsy read heart failure due to food poisoning and it was all my fault.
Night after the operation, I called Silas,
Are you okay? Dammy
Yea… Just make sure things go according to plan. My guess is that Dee’s still around to make sure Mae’s dead.
No P, man. I’ll do just that. I called the marble guys and also the wood carvers. They should be ready tomorrow.
Make sure they are.
The burial must hold immediately.
We’re moving somewhere else.
America, Australia, anywhere. As long as I don’t remember all what has happened.
Its alright man, I understand you….
Before I forget, the doctor called.
She’s recuperating well.
Alright, just make sure no one knows about this.
The police searched for Dee after this but she was nowhere to be found. My guess is that she went back to where she came from.
I’m on my way to the airport. I’ve chosen to move to australia and start a new life, can’t stick around to remember this pain.
I just stopped by Silas’s home to say goodbye.
He was really helpful in making this plan work.
He’s truly a friend.
Dammy, we did it.
The bitch is gone.
I know. I replied still smiling at the fact that I wasn’t going to see my second best friend again.
She won’t be troubling us anymore.
Yeah! He exclaimed.
We have to drink to that!
Omuti oshi! I have to go now jor. My bride’s waiting for me.
Lover boy, he teased.
Go get her. You deserve it. I’ll try and keep in touch.
You do just that.
I do hope you’ll drop by one day.
I hugged him one last time and exited his apartment.
Silas; a true friend indeed.
Who thought we would pull this off.
Make Dee believe she succeeded.
Kudos to the doctor for trying his best. My Mae could have been dead now.
I smile now as I recall the fake burial,
the fake newspaper adverts,
my resignation letter,
the carved wood rotting in the casket six feet under,
Dee returning abroad after a supposed job “well done.”
My wailing. Thank God I took those acting classes in school.
And Silas, he was wonderful.
Our plan did work!
I soon get to the airport and I search for her.
And then, I see her.
Basking in the sunlight, her beauty as tantalizing as ever was;
My best friend;
And that’s the end to the Dee series.
Whew, its been a hell of a journey but I hope it was worth it.
As much as I want to stop here, I just have to add that the Dee sequel is just an eye opener into what happens in our society today.
Betrayal, lack of trust, disloyalty; all of this have become rampant and most times we can do nothing to avoid it. What we can do though is to avoid flowing with the tide and being unique.
Stand out and fight for your Mae.
Life may not smile on you the way it smiled on Dammy but there’s always a silver lining in every dark cloud. That silver lining is what you should look out for.
Love, Trust, be Loyal and most importantly, never give up on him or her.
Thanks for taking time to read all four sequels.
