Victim’s of Love: 7
( Rose and Junior was seen seated inside an eatery with two bottles of Malts in front of them.)
Rose: (with a sad sigh) That was what happened after I got married to Dave and Samson.
Junior: You went through a lot Rose. When I came back I searched for you but I didn’t see you, I even went to Akure and asked your former neighbours and they told me you no longer live there. Thank God I met you today.
Rose: Me too Junior, I do ask of you from your mum.
Junior: She never told me that, anyway I am glad you are here. My parents won’t believe it if I tell them.
Rose: It’s been a long I last saw them.
Junior: Give your phone number and your house address.
Rose: I don’t have a phone, sold it some months ago to be able to complete Ikenna’s admission fees.
Junior: Alright, give me your house address (he gave her his phone which she began writing her house address. Junior eye never left her face.)
Mrs Juliet House:

Mrs Juliet: Rose my daughter you still haven’t told me who gave you such a huge amount of money which you used part of it to prepare this meal.
Rose: Mama guess who I met today?
Mrs Juliet: Tell me Na you know I am not a good guesser.
Rose: I met Junior today Mama, you need to see how happy he was seeing me.
Mrs Juliet: Junior? My friend Lillian son?.
Rose: Yes Mama, he was the one who gave me the money and even told me he is coming here tomorrow to take me to their house. It has been a long time I saw Uncle and Aunty.
Mrs Juliet: Thank God tomorrow is Sunday, both my friend and her husband will be at home. God will bless Junior for me,
Rose: Amen Mama, amen.

Mr James: Sit down dear.
Rose: (Sitting down and junior sat next to her) Thank you uncle.
Mrs Lillian: Let me go and get something for you Rose. (Getting up to her feet she walks towards the kitchen.)
( Junior and his mother)
Mrs Lillian: My son, I don’t like the way you were following Rose about this afternoon.
Junior: Mum I see no wrong in that. She’s my friend.
Mrs Lillian: Don’t forget she is a married woman.
Junior: Mum, she is no longer in that marriage.
Mrs Lillian: I have said my own.
Mrs Juliet Kiosk.
( Rose and Junior was seen seated. They were alone.)
Rose: I didn’t know you were coming today.
Junior: I couldn’t allow another day to pass without seeing your beautiful face.
Rose: (Laughing) Stop that Junior.
Junior: But I am not lying, I brought you something. (He gave her a brand new Android phone.)
Rose: (Collecting the phone pack from Junior) You got me a phone Junior?
Junior: Yeah, at least we can reach each other.
Rose: Thank you so much Junior.
Junior: You are welcome, so do you have anyone in your life now, boyfriend?
Rose: No, I don’t think I will be in any relationship for now, what about you, any girlfriend?
Junior: No, (Suddenly serious) Rose do you still remember what I told you on the phone years ago?
Rose: (trying to recall but couldn’t remember) No, I don’t, please refresh my memory.
Junior: I told you my feelings, I told you I love you and you warned me.
Rose: I remembered.
Junior: The thing is I still love you.
Rose: You are joking?
Junior: I am not joking Rose, you have been in my mind all these years and when I came back and I couldn’t see you, it felt as if I had died. But now that I have seen you, I am not letting you go. I love you Rose and I will love to make you my wife. I have been asking you for your love since and you keep pushing me away, and I am still asking you now, so please don’t push me away this time around. The love I have for you is real.
Rose: But you know my story Junior I got married twice.
Junior: Can’t you see they are not meant for you, you and I are meant for each other, please my beautiful Rose, love me back that’s all I ask
Rose: Our age gap between us is much.
Junior: And so? What matters right now is true love, age isn’t a barrier once it comes to love.
Rose: I am afraid to give a man my heart again after what I have been through.
Junior: Try me Rose and you will see the difference, my love for you is real.
Rose: Your parents won’t accept this.
Junior: Don’t worry about my parents, they will understand and accept you as the woman I am going to spend the rest of my life with. You cannot fight this rose. This is fate, if we are not meant for each other then I would have gotten married.
Rose: Okay, I have heard you Junior, I am going to give us a trial.
Junior: (Jumping around with joy, pulling her to her feet and hugging her.) Thank you, thank you rose. I promise you, you won’t regret this. I love you so much.
