A person who’s confident and assured of their self-esteem, don’t go around playing mind games for someone to fall in love with them. When you know whom you are, you wouldn’t see any need to chase someone that doesn’t want you; all you would do is let go of any feelings you might have gotten for that person and position yourself for someone that would cherish and love you completely, because there’s no greater joy than being with a person that’s totally into you, the same way you are into them.
It’s apparent that Mandy was indirectly throwing herself at Precious without any iota of shame. She didn’t bother to consider her friend ‘Barbara’ whom she knew was already in love with him. It’s so sad that Mandy couldn’t even let this one slide, knowing fully well that this was the first man Barbara was considering a relationship with; after turning down so many guys in the past. So sad!
After Mandy revealed to Precious that she loved praying; hence her reason for wanting them to pray before he leaves, Precious kept his cool and accepted to engage in the prayer.
“No Mandy, please don’t! Let him go because it’s already late, we can pray together without him” Barbara chipped in. Mandy smiled and nodded ‘Ok’ but was feeling bitter within. “I’ll have to leave then, you both should take care and I’ll call you later” Precious said and zoomed out.
As Precious walked away, Mandy almost dropped dead because it felt as though a part of her was leaving. Barbara confusingly looked at her and looked away shortly because she didn’t even know what to say at that moment. After about two minutes of silence, Mandy finally spoke. “Why did you make me look bad in front of your guest? I only asked that we pray; which is a good thing if you ask me. He agreed but you just had to make me look bad by telling him to go” Mandy angrily said.
At that moment, Barbara was confused and didn’t even know what she was talking about, neither did she know where her anger was coming from. “What do you mean?” She confusingly asked, “you already know what I mean” Mandy replied and got up to leave.
Barbara laid back on the bed and couldn’t utter any word till Mandy left. She kept wondering what the problem was but couldn’t find any reasonable answer to the questions in her head. As she laid on her bed thinking, Precious called to check up on her and they got talking.
They talked for a long time and it helped Barbara forget all that Mandy did. Precious was a sweet person and knew how to keep a conversation going. They talked about so many random stuffs and ended by saying ‘Goodnight’ to each other.
When the call ended, something struck Precious heart and it was the gradual realisation that he was beginning to fall slowly for Barbara. Precious kept wondering why he cared so much about her and always wanted to check up on her. “But she seems uninterested in me so I don’t know if it’s mutual” he thought to himself all night.
While Precious was afraid of the new development of feeling he was having for Barbara, he wasn’t aware that she became attracted to him the very first day she set her eyes on him for the property viewing. If only he knew that Barbara fell in love with him a long time ago, then he probably would have hastened his steps to make her his.
That night, Precious thought of several ways to draw Barbara closer to him and finally came up with a good plan. The following day was a busy one for Precious so he didn’t have the chance to check up on Barbara till around passed 5pm.
As at that time, Barbara was still at work and was busy as well. She hadn’t communicated with Mandy all day and it made her feel bad. Just as Barbara was about dialing Mandy’s number, Precious call came in. She smiled faintly and picked up; “Hello dear” she greeted, “How are you doing?” He asked and she told him she was good. “What are you up to?” Precious asked, “Nothing much, I just have so much work to do in a short period of time” Barbara tiredly replied.
Now, despite the fact that Barbara was truly tired, the main reason she was worn out was because of her little misunderstanding with her ‘supposed’ best friend. The fact that they hadn’t spoken to each other all day was eating Barbara up.
The truth of the matter is that Barbara isn’t used to anger and hatred, she was just a loving, free spirited lady. If only she knew how much envy and jealousy Mandy had been bottling up in her heart, she probably would have realised that their little misunderstanding was a blessing in disguise for her to advert the danger that was ahead. Too bad we can’t see what the future holds till the event happens!
As Barbara conversed with Precious, he tried to cheer her up and bring her out of the sad mood she was in. “When can I see you again?” He gently asked and Barbara smiled, “when do you want to see me?” She replied and he told her the balls were all in her court. Barbara chuckled and told Precious that she would alert him whenever she was chanced. They said goodbye to each other and ended the call.
Immediately the call ended, Barbara dialed Mandy’s line and she pick after the second attempt. “Hey baby, so you can be angry with me for a whole day without calling, it’s not fair oh” Barbara playfully said. Mandy was still upset but felt it was time to let go. They reconciled and talked as though they weren’t in good terms few minutes back. They both apologised to each other and moved on.
Days passed and both Barbara and Precious still haven’t had time to see each other. That week was extremely busy for both of them because they had so much engagements from their various occupation. They communicated via phone calls all through but wasn’t able to see each other face to face.
Fortunately, a day finally came where they had less engagements so they agreed to meet up at Precious newly purchased house. He invited Barbara over and she was so excited within. After close of work that day, Barbara took an Uber and headed straight to Precious house.
When she arrived, he was already waiting for her outside. The sight of Precious standing outside wearing a short was beautiful to behold. Barbara was smitten and majestically got down from the car and walked closer to him. “Barbie Barbie! You look tired but beautiful” he said and she blushed; “thanks for inviting me over” she said, “thanks for coming” he replied.
They walked into the house and entered Precious living room. The first thing Barbara noticed was that his house was partly furnished. “Why haven’t you started furnishing? There’s still so much to be done” she pointed out and Precious smiled. “To be honest, one of the reasons I invited you over today is because I want to employ you to be my interior decorator” he said.
Barbara was shocked and haven’t felt so wanted and important in her life before. “You want me to decorate and furnish your house for you?” She surprisingly asked and Precious nodded ‘yes’. Barbara was dumbfounded and didn’t know what else to say; “Thank you so much, I’m honestly flattered. Do you have any idea of what you want?” She curiously asked, “No I don’t, I’m trusting you to do a good job so that’s why I’m leaving everything entirely to you. I’ll be leaving town next week, so come up with the budget you need for the furnishing” He said and Barbara nodded ‘yes’.
As they were talking, Precious didn’t know if it was the right time to pour out his heart to her. He kept fighting himself within and didn’t know what next course of action to take.
Unable to hold his feelings any longer, he put his hand into his pocket and brought out a spare key to his house. He handed the key to Barbara and said; “Take the spare key to my house since I would be traveling soon and you need to work here, but as you receive the key, can you receive my heart too?”.
Barbara was numb and kept arguing with herself within that Precious might have had a slip of tongue and probably didn’t mean what he said. With her eyes wide opened, she asked; “What did you just say to me?”,
Precious moved closer to her and said; “I love you Barbara, I feel cold because I have been standing outside your heart, can you please open the door and let me in?

- episode 5
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.
