LIFE OF A BROKE NAIJA GRADUATE CHAPTER 16

I was in the kitchen preparing lunch when I heard a knock... I was lazy to go check who was at the door so I pretended not to hear since Shina was in the bedroom. I continued with my work, when i heard Shina' s footsteps and the door cracking. It was a familiar female voice, I listen carefully as they exchange pleasantry and decided to clear my doubt about whose voice it was, and seeing Dommy in my house that afternoon melt my heart. Who is Dommy?
I labelled her "dummy" because she was my diehard enemy, she hated me right from our days in Saint Louis Grammar School, Ikere Ekiti. I was a neat,pompous girl back then and all my school mates back then were jealous of me because every time we had the privilege to go outside our school gates, all "Anco" boys (Saint Louis Grammar School is a girls' school while Annunciation*anco* is our male *version*) rushed me like houseflies. Everyone was jealous of me including Dummy. She crushed on Fife, Anco headboy while we were in SS3, but I ended up dating him. This made her hate me. When we met in UNILAG, She was Amber Rose's friend, which worsen her hatred for me. Amber Rose told her about my fake lifestyle and she labelled me "fake Rihanna Alakada". What was she doing I'm my house, our house? I thought. She focused her gaze towards me immediately I came into the living room.
" oh my! Riri!!!"She screamed and hugged me. I was confused, she was my sworn enemy and her warm treatment gave me goosebumps.
"What are you doing here? Do you work with Shina?" She asked smiling.
"She is my wife, my fiancé" Shina responded before I could say anything. I looked into Dummy's eyes and she looked into mine, I could see she was heartbroken,surprised and frightened. We exchanged gaze for few seconds before she announced her departure.
"I think I've to be on my way" she said as she picked her bag that was lying on the couch.
"Lunch is almost ready" I said, I did not know when those words came out of my mouth and it sounded like "poison is ready"
"I can't wait, dear. Maybe some other time. See ya, Shina. Kisses" she blew us kiss as she left hurriedly.
"What's happening, darling." I asked worriedly. Was she Shina's ex fiancée? If she was, then I'm in trouble. Shina snubbed me and sat on the couch.
"Is food ready?" He asked as he retired into the couch looking tired. We ate lunch in total silence that afternoon. No one was speaking to another, I guessed we were both lost in our thoughts.
I visited Fiwa the following day and explained everything that happened to her. She was worried about me, and my past lifestyle.
"Aderin, I'll advise you to open up and let your fiancée knows about your past life. You know Dommy! She is dangerous." She advised.
"It would be better Shina hears from the horse mouth than from a third party. Aderin, open up!" I was weeping already, how could I look into Shina's eyes and tell him I had six abortions, how would I tell his mum my mother was an illiterate! Life was so unfair to me and I wished death could take my soul. The thought of losing Shina made my dreams shattered, he was my love, my dream and I could feel no future without him.
Fiwa was consoling me as I was sobbing when Dummy entered. I was shocked! The look on her face was scary, she came in with her hands akimbo, she stepped aside as someone else came in. I meant someone from my past!!
Diary of a broke Graduate will yltake another dimension here.... Who came in? Who is Shina's ex fiancée?
Answers before I drop da bomb.
