A seemingly perfect and silent atmosphere suddenly transpired into a crazy benevolent celebratory wing with Jane all over place screaming, ”Finally!!!’ at the top of her voice, throwing the innocent throw-pillows all over the sitting room, subtly scaring poor Sol to hiding, there was immense Joy in her spirit, she threw herself on the couch in excitement.
“Abeg make we hear word, Finally what?” Sophia asked, Smiling and at the same time very much confused.
“I’d be going on a Dinner Date with my Anuel!! I was picked to go see a movie premiere!!” Jane screamed.
“You have got to be kidding me” Sophia said.
“See!!!” Jane screamed, waving her phone displaying Anuel’s message at Sophia’s face,”That’s his freaking official page sending me a dm, that’s the blue tick right next to his name!! What Infatuation has put together, Sophia Achike do not put asunder!!”

The Celebrity – Episode 2
“Congratulations sha…You will finally get to meet him” Sophia said with both ends of her mouth forming an inverted “U”.
“You don’t know how I feel right now..I have been following this guy since 2017 , I have literally sort for his attention so many times and its just overwhelming that something amazing as this is going to happen. I am so excited”. Jane said, subtly re-reading Anuel’s message, she did not notice the smirk on Sophia’s face when she literally started screaming again.
“Wetin Happen again?’ Sophia said, rushing to see whats on her phone, Wetin happen? she asked again.
“Oh my God, Is this how you want to reward me for waiting patiently..OMG!!” Jane wailed in excitement, dramatically grabbing the nearest throw pillow and clenching it to her chest passionately.
A slightly irritated Sophia could no longer handle Jane’s excitement when she grabbed Jane’s phone to see what rattled her with so much excitement and before her eyes could grasp the surprise, Jane broke the news to her;
“Anuel has followed me on Instagram!! He liked my photos, scroll down a bit to see his comment on my recent photo, that one I took at Blue Rose Treat’ Jane carefully instructed and Sophia followed accordingly.
“have you seen the comment?’ Jane asked.
“No..I never see am”
“Ah scroll down nau, Infact let me show the post itself, so you can check the comment sections by yourself” Jane said, reaching to collect the phone when Sophia stopped her and told her she had seen the comment.
“You are so pretty, I cant wait to see you” Sophia read out with a smile on her face. “Omo you don blow o” she added before handing the phone back to Jane.
“Guy!!! You can say that again sweet heart” Jane said, recoiling into the cushion with the throw pillow still pressed to her chest and another in between her legs.
“So what next?” Sophia asked walking to the dining table to pour herself a glass of water.
“What next? I don’t understand?”
“The date with Anuel ofcourse? When is it?”
“I literally don’t know yet, I’d be communicating with him by the way”
“He is yet to make the date with you public”
“That’s not an issue”
“That’s my problem with you, you don’t see an issue with anything…Not making the date with you public sounds shady to me …” Sophia queried.
Jane narrowed her eyes down to her phone and did not reply as her Attention was distracted by the activities on her phone. Her Instagram notifications was blowing up, New followers pouring in with lots of heart emoji’s and “congratulations” scattered all over her comment sections, pictures. Her page followings increasing every seconds. She was amazed and literally trying to figure out what was going on when she saw a comment that was tagged to her name, “ Awwwn Congratulations @UrcuteJane, I can literally do anything to be in your place right now girl, better shot your shot!” the comment read. Her heart raced and her fingers shook in excitement. She took a deep breath before tapping on the comment to reply only to realize the comment was made by the user under a recent post Anuel had made some minutes ago.
“Oh wow!! What a coincidence, he has announced Sophia!!” Jane screamed, throwing the phone to a corner to embrace herself, her hands had gone cold and while her racing heart tried to align with her excitement, she felt like fainting from so much happiness.
Sophia lowered the glass of water she was holding on the table and quickly scampered around the sitting room for her phone to confirm if Jane’s out burst was true. When she finally did, she saw Missed calls and text from a mutual acquaintance she shared with Jane,”Hi Sophy, I just saw your friend on Anuel Okereke’s page, is she really going to see him?” the message read, she swiped the message off her screen and logged into her instagram account, launched the explore button, entered Anuel’s username In the search box and was in his page in no less than two seconds. She literally muffled words that were quiet inaudible, but then turned to Jane, whose face was lit with excitement and all over the place,”This has got to be your dream coming through, I am happy for you girl” she said, before turning back to her to read the caption in Anuel’s post.
“YO Guys!! @UrCuteJane is the lucky woman that has been picked to go on a date with me on the 4TH of June, Immediately After A Walk In The Shadows Movie premiere ” the caption read.
‘So, Apparently, You have just Three day to go..” Sophia said.
“Three Long Days Sophia, I wish time could just sail quickly!!” Jane replied, “Oh Sophia come and see, my followers are increasing! I cant believe my page of 1.2k followers is now at 6k followers and increasing”
“What do you expect, An Influential Celebrity just gave you a shout out on his page, I cant wait to see where this leads us” Sophia jeeringly said.
“He is just not a celebrity, he is the love of my life” Jane screamed.
“That’s how you will chase him away with this Love, love, love thingy, calm down abeg, you sound desperate”Sophia said, her voice literally sounding off the vibes of a righteously jealous friend trying to protect her friend from heart break.
“Calm down…My Joy should be your Joy Sophia…I literally don’t care if he see’s me as whatever, I honestly don’t , I will be fine” Jane replied, departing to her room seconds later.
It was at that point Sophia decided to take a deep breath and shut up,she threw her self on the couch and leaned backwards to rest her back on the couch. Jane came back to the sitting room, All tush and dressed up.
“I’m going shopping, would you like to come along?” Jane asked.
“The date of course?”
“Goshhh you have 3 more days …We can do this tomorrow , You should be at the store taking orders”
“I know what I want at the moment..I am in the solemn mood of changing my wardrobe” Jane said, rolling her eyes and massaging her wet lips, her hands in the air, she made a dramatic snap with her fingers before reaching for her purse ,”I dey wait for you for Mama Oluchi shop, If I no see you in the next ten mins, I go push”.
“I cant believe this is happening!!” Sophia said, dragging herself upstairs to get dressed.
“Abeg do fast, time no dey” Jane said, pushing the door knob to open the door, “I dey wait oh!” she added. Slamming the door shut afterwards.
Anuel Okereke stood by the Snooker table, his eyes on the snooker table, focused and narrowed at a green ball with his snooker stick aiming to strike, when Richard’s call came in. “Guy I dey house , where you dey?” Chidi’s voice rumbled over the phone.
“I’m at the Snooker Court” Anuel replied gently.
“Dom perignon?” Richard asked, he was literally asking Anuel if he needed a drink, a glass of the brute.
“I’m not in the mood for a drink” Anuel replied with his slow and easy going masculine voice.
“Hey bro!! Na me be baba for that game!!” Richard shouted out of sight. Anuel focused on trying to strike another ball when Richard walked up to him handing him a glass with a smile on his face hiding under his red face cap.
“I told you I wasn’t in for a Drink!” Anuel said, turning down his request. He turned to focus on the snooker balls and was about shooting at a ball only for Richard snatched the ball when he was striking it.
“The snooker board, sticks and balls are not leaving you,we haven’t seen each other in a long time and as such is concerned, I deserve a welcoming reception from you”. Richard said, stretching out to offer Anuel the glass of drink he had earlier turned down, firmly holding unto his and lifting it to his lips to take a sip seconds later.
Anuel shook his head before collecting the glass from him. “You really don’t listen Richard, that’s one of my problem with you”
“Don’t worry, its not Alcohol. A little mixture to set your insides on flames” Richard said, pointing to a seat, “Lets take a sit” he added.
Richard led the way to the large long Seat. Anuel followed right behind him, sipping from his glass, He wondered what Richard had mixed into the glass to give it the weird amazing taste . He was enjoying the drink.
They both settled into the hard iron seat, sipping from their respective glass. They enjoyed the fresh breeze roaming around the snooker court as it graced their face, propelling them to take deep breaths, more deep breaths before turning to look at each other. Their silent mood dissolved into a round of laughter, laughing at nothing, not even a joke. Their laughter grew intense when Anuel tried to speak and ended up choking on his drink.
“We are not shooting a movie scene or an advert for Budweiser” Richard said, accompanying his Jab with another round of laughter.
“Damn!! We are not Okay laidis..” Anuel said when he recovered.
“So whatsup Man”
“Your so-called date with a fan of yours is nothing much?” Richard said with a smirk on his face.
“Oh that… Its just a date” Anuel replied, slowly seeping his drink.
“Is that the reason why you have been ignoring your girlfriend’s calls?” Richard asked.
“Point of correction, My Ex girlfriend.”
“Your ex? When did you guys break up”
“It’s a long story”
“Your mum said I should talk to you about it. You are turn 35 soon, don’t you plan to..”
“Get Married?” Anuel asked, subtly ushering a round of laughter before his serious face emerged, “No, I don’t want to get Married, Not to Cassandra”
“Whats wrong with Cassandra, when did you guys become this way”
“You are my friend right? You should know me to well, You should know I desire my peace of mind over anything else and getting Married is just going to rub me of that.” Anuel said.
“Guy, You are 35” Richard said.
“Age is just a number” Anuel replied.
“What happened between you and Cassandra?” Richard asked again.
“It’s a long story, I just cant put up with her any more Man. I was never in love with her in the first place. My parents are the ones doing just too much.” Anuel said, his voice firm and at the same time slightly irritated.
“But Cassandra is a nice girl”
“You were never in a relationship with her, I was”
“We are no longer in any form of relationship, that girl literally suffocates me, she is so insecure and in my business 24/7, Who is calling and texting me and whole lot of other bullshits that irritate me, we aren’t even married yet and she is trying to own my Life, I refuse to be Married and Miserable”
Richard took a deep breath along with a sip from his almost empty glass, “She is Mad about the date with your fan”
“That’s her business”
“You guys were literarily really good friends”
“What do you expect from an actor, I literally had to put up with lots of her bullshits and play along, But right now I am so done and trying to just Exist in my space, doing the things I want, when and how I want to. Jesus Christ!”
“Hearing you say all these, I have to admit you are also a bag of shit as well” Richard said, subtly giggling to lighten up the serious atmosphere.
“You can say whatever you like Bro, You are not in my shoes” Anuel said, maintaining a serious face as he tried to take another sip and realized his glass was empty.
“Ahn Ahn – Someone cannuh play with you ni?”
“Its fine anyways…My glass is empty, lets go to the bar”Anuel said, getting up to leave. Richard followed suit.
“I thought you said you weren’t in the mood for a drink” Richard asked , subtly giving Anuel a warm path on the back.
“That’s why I call you the Devil’s Advocate..what do you expect after forcefully giving me a drink.” Anuel replied, handing his empty glass to Richard to enable him adjust the fly of his white short.
“Ahah lets talk about your suppose fan-date” Richard suggested.
“We can talk about that when we get to the bar” Anuel replied, exiting the snooker court, Richard following almost immediately with the door slamming shot right after they left.
It was Past 7PM in the evening,“A day well spent!!” were the words Jane said she pushed the door into the sitting room open, gracefully embraced by the warmth of the sitting room, she slammed the door shot after Sophia entered with the other shopping bags. Sophia placed the bags on the floor and threw herself on the couch to catch her breath. Sol crept out from the corner she was hiding and latched unto Sophia’s bosoms with her two tiny hands, wagging her tail in sheer happiness. Jane on the other hand went to freshen and returned to the sitting room to try out the outfits they had bought.
“I hope sey this market wey we go, I go get something inside sha” Sophia said, her eyes focused on her phone. lifting Sol into the couch seconds later.
“You will collect when I finish selecting the ones I want” Jane said, rolling her eyes with a smile to express sarcasm.
“ Nawa oh…this life no balance” Sophia said, turning off her phone. She flung her phone under the throw pillow and proceeded to unfold the cloths from the nylon bags.
Jane quickly threw on a peach bodycon dress, a little bit above knee length, “How do you see this dress for the premiere?” she asked.
“You are not going there to help them arrange chairs, you need to match his taste!! You no dey see him pictures?” Sophia said, leering at her.
‘But its …” Jane tried to object.
“No argue with me abeg” Sophia said, pointing at a orange birkin dress, ”try on that orange dress lets see”
“No I don’t like that one” Jane objected.
“You haven’t even tried it on”
“ I hate you” Jane said, grumbling as she undressed like an unhappy child whose request for a candy floss had been rejected. Halfway into the birkin dress,”I look unserious” Jane added.
“Wear what you want then, you no dey hear word” Sophia said with a frown, throwing the remaining cloths in her possession on the table before she reclined into the couch. Obviously offended.
“Sorry nau…I just don’t like the orange dress” Jane apologized with an apologetic expression on her face.
“Na your business Jane, Where whatever you want..You are just impossible” Sophia said, Angrily.
“Ah why are you angry nau..calm down abeg” Jane said, pulling out a oxblood long sleeved midi bodycon dress and trying it on, ”Oya how do you see this one?” she asked with a warm smile on her face.
“Abeg leave me, you too dey make person vex” Sophia said, trying to feign anger.
“My love …No dey vex for me abeg, I just want to look peppery for my lovely boo” Jane said, dramatically doing a slow 360 degree flip around.
“The dress is fine!” Sophia replied, trying to contain her anger and forgiving spirit with a wry smile on her face.
Jane was about to try on a pink floral split dress when her phone beeped, it was an instagram notification. There was a message for her. It was from Anuel.
