Wrong number Episode 36)

Episode 36

I got to Tunde’s place and sighted my fiancé’s Range Rover parked in front of the gate. Did he fly?” I wondered.

He came out of his car when he sighted him. He gave me a side hug and we went inside, no gateman. The gate was not locked.

We met him lying on the floor drunk to stupor. When did he start taking alcohol?” I asked myself.

He had already packed his personal belongings.
Daniel and I helped him up and made him sit on the sofa, he was crying like a baby, reeling of alcohol.

“You need to man up guy! This is not the end of the world” Daniel said
I picked one of the empty beer bottles on the floor.

“Now that you resolved to alcohol, as it solved your problems. Tunde is this the solution” I raise the bottle to his face. Tunde, you are a disappointment, take a look at you, you are a mess right now.

He buried he’s face in palms sobbing.
“You need to take your bath and change, we need to get you out of here since you’ve been ejected” I said and pulled him up.

Daniel led him upstairs to the bathroom and return shortly.
“Daniella! What are you trying to do, where will you take him” he asked anxiously.

“Don’t worry he’s not coming to the mansion, I can’t allow him stay with you” I replied

“Hope you are not thinking of taking him to your house either”

“No, he still has a friend who can helped, remember the guy from his former house?”
Daniel nodded.

I put a call through to Francis and explained the issue in ground.
“What are friend for, you can bring him” he said.

“Thanks Francis, we’ll bring him right away”

He came downstairs, he looked a bit better this time, we packed his things in the vehicle.
Daniel turn on the ignition, we were about to leave, then Tunde asked
“Where are you taking me?”

“To Francis’s” I said

“Back to square one” he blurted out, tears steaming his face.

I really felt for me, drop of tears fell from my eyes. Daniel saw it and held my left hand and squeezed it gently.

I gave Daniel directions to the house. Francis opened the gate for us, Daniel drove into the compound and parked the car. We all exchanged greetings. I introduced Daniel and Francis. He moved Tunde’s things into his room.

We all took turn in encouraging Tunde.
“You don’t have to wallow in self pity, pick up the pieces of your life and start all over again. I hope you’ll make the right call next time” Francis said

“You warned me then, but I never listened. You told me its my loss if I leave Pamilerin, now I loss not only her but everything. Have learnt my lesson” Tunde said calmly.

“I heard you are brilliant, there are so many companies out there who are interested in people like you, so I think your next move now is to get another promising job and I wish you all the best” Daniel advice.

“Pamilerin was right he said your kind of man is rare. I can see she’s right. Thank you so much Daniel for your help” Tunde said.

“You are welcome”

“Send your CV to my mail, I still have some people who can help” I said

“I will, thank you” he said looking into my eyes.

I wanted to cry but I held it.
“Promise me you won’t drink again”

“I promise” he said assuredly

“We have to leave now” I informed them.

Francis followed us outside, he really appreciate what we did for Tunde. We also thank him for his kind gestures too.

Daniel offered to drop me off, I accepted the offer whole heartedly because I was so tired.
He dropped me off and left.

I called Tunde later in the evening to find out how he was doing
“Are you still using your old bank account”

“You don’t need to send me money, I’ll be fine”

"You want to live off your friend, housing you is enough, I don’t want you to be a burden to him"

“Pamilerin you’ve done enough”

“Is the account still active?” I asked bluntly.

“Yes” he said and sighed heavily.

“Ok, good night and sleep well”

“I will, thanks. Good night.

I ended the call and made the transfer immediately. I dont spent my salary, I never needed to, thanks to Daniel.
