A LONG WALK TO NOTHING (Episode 3 of 32)


A LONG WALK TO NOTHING (Episode 3 of 32)

Alexia is in her only office that is the kitchen, today is at least less hectic since Eddy is home, he helped clean around the house and now it’s evening so he went to pick Celine from school….. Alexia at least managed to take her bath, dress nicely and apply some makeup….. She has not set her eyes on her husband today, she had left him sleeping when she took Celine to school in the morning but when she got back, he was already gone, she has to look appealing tonight so they can talk……as she’s there in the kitchen, she thought she heard a car drive in, she’s so delighted, it’s either her husband or Eddy is back home with Celine…… She comes out of the kitchen to the living room and there he was, standing all gloomy and moody

“Welcome back home Darling” she says and he doesn’t smile but responds

“Thank you” she moves to where he’s standing and tries to take his bag and his coat but he tightens his grip

“I can do it” he says and he walks past her, in normal days, he would rush to her with a kiss and remind her of how much he loves her but it’s not the case

“Are you not picking your daughter today” he must have felt a little bad for his attitude as he tries to talk to her

“Edmond is picking her up”

“I didn’t know he was home” all this while, he doesn’t turn to her but speaks to her with his back facing her

“He called yesterday, I was going to tell you but you were long asleep when I got up there” he doesn’t say anything else as he proceeds upstairs but stops some how

“Don’t bother about dinner…..I’m not hungry”

“Again?” She asks not believing he’s doing this again but he doesn’t respond….. He continues climbing up……Alexia is not going to let him get away with it this time around so she follows him, he gets to their door and slams it in her face but she won’t just give up, she pushes open the door and for the very first time in twenty years raises her voice at him

“What has gotten in to you Donald….. Is this a new style or what?” He throws his bag on the bed and sits down, adjust his neck tie and begins to remove his shoes but she’s not going to let him disrespect her, she holds him by the lapel

“I’m talking to you Donald”

“Please I’m very tired….let me be”

“This isn’t you Donald…… Last night, I thought it was the stress of work and the fact that you found Cecilia here but….”

“Not another word from you Alexia”

“What is going on?…. What is the problem?”

“You are the problem don’t you get it…..out…..leave now”

“What?….. Donald, you can’t possibly think I will leave before you tell me what my crime is”

“You’re testing my patience woman…..I’m not in the moods for your argument….. I’m not used to it” she’s not used to it either but before she can say anything else, he cuts her short

“I don’t want to say something I might regret so leave” so defeated, Alexia looks at her husband but in his eyes there is furry and anger that can’t be explained, she feels hurt but what can she do, she walks out of the room in defeat, opens the door and comes face to face with her son

“You’re back” she asks Eddy who just nods…she proceeds downstairs as Eddy follows her behind…..

Cecilia lies down on the cold floor of her apartment with her legs raised up in the air…..she’s scrawling through her phone going through her pictures with Donald…. They were a power couple back then, they looked good and beautiful together….. It was love at first sight, she met him at a time she was trying to make a name for herself, she had gone for an audition to appear on a billboard for advertising a body lotion…..she had nothing, not even a single coin to transport herself from the audition centre, she was hungry and footing….as if that wasn’t enough, it just started raining, she couldn’t run and wait in a shelter because she still had a long way to go before reaching home and it was getting late, as she walked in the rain with her perfectly long hair now wet and cold, a car pulled besides her and the person in pulls down the mirror

“Hey…..get in” the person speaks but she doesn’t spare him a glance….the man doesn’t give up

“Excuse me miss…. You should get in, I’m harmless” it’s at this point she finally looks at him, a very young boy, in his teens…she stops and he also stops

“So you can successfully kidnap me?….. No thank you”

“Suit yourself” he says and drives past splashing water on her

“Shit” she says and runs after him but she couldn’t catch the car, she stops and throws her cellphone after him smashing her small phone on the car and he stops, she gets to him and walks over to his side, she kicks the tire real hard

“Aaaauuch… feet” she screams and the young man smiles, he gets out his ID

“Look here…..this is my ID, my name is Donald Stevenson…. I’m harmless, if only you could trust me”

“Get lost”

“Gladly…..let’s see for how long you will carry on now that you have one more problem added onto the ones you already have….. broken feet” she doesn’t say any word

“Get in, let me help you” she finally gives in and opens the door, she’s all wet and fears for his car but he doesn’t look any bothered

“Sorry about your phone” he says and she doesn’t say anything

“Can I at least know your name”

“Cecilia…..Cecilia Adams”

“Nice name….. Are you living within”


“Wow!!!…. That’s quite far from here….how were you going to get there” she doesn’t say anything but the guy surprised her, he took her up to her home, and he visited after two days with a much better phone, they became friends and later became boyfriend and girlfriend….. It was a beautiful love affair, Donald loved her and she loved him too, soon her modeling carrier picked up and she because famous, her priorities changed, Donald was no longer the first priority but he never gave up on her, she started seeing him as a hindrance but he tagged along, he would cry for her but she wouldn’t give a damn……she got another opportunity with a modeling agency in Canada, that was just the excuse she was waiting for to finally dump him…..she broke the heart wrecking news to him and he cried for days begging her not to go, he even offered to go with her once his business had picked up but no she still maintained her no, she finally dumped him and that was it, she left for Canada without any care in the world, Donald still never gave up on her, there was no social Media back then but he kept sending mails to her, she can’t tell how many he sent but they were so many yet she replied non… continued and things were moving on so fine but one day after a few months, the mails stopped coming, she at first wasn’t bothered because she still thought it was what was best for them, but she became worried after a month passed without one mail from him, she had to write to her only sister back home asking her to find out what happened and she was shuttered when she heard he had moved on…she too tried to move on, she met guys but non was as good as her Donald, non wanted commitment, the ones who wanted commitment wanted something else, not a model for a wife……that was when she started seeing world from a different angle, she tried to work out extra heard to earn a household name back home in order to attract Donald’s attention, she managed to make that name but she failed in one thing, getting his attention……. Years passed and technology improved, she searched Donald up on Facebook and she was shocked, he had grown, he had a huge company and he still remained young and handsome and what’s more, he was married to a very beautiful young lady with a son……she was instantly jealous, she became a stalker and stalked them both, not once did she chat Donald up, she never sent him a friend request either…… Five years ago, she now came home big, she was a role model to young girls aspiring to become models, she had everything but now she wanted one thing back and that was her man, she wanted Donald back but had no idea how she would, her luck came the day she realized her sister’s daughter was in the same school with Donald’s son and they were actually friends, she did everything possible to get close to Edmond and he was her bridge to Alexia, when she finally met Alexia five years ago, she was threatened by her natural beauty, the woman was more beautiful in person than in those pictures……they became friends but when Donald found out, he was furious and mad, but his stubborn wife stood her ground, they have been friends ever since but two years later, Alexia gave birth to her second child and that’s when her beauty went down in history, things became heard for her, she had so many things to do herself and no longer had free time to fix herself up, she knew it was just a matter of time Donald would get tired of pretending to love her in her new body, she’s close to getting to her goal…… she processes all this, her other phone besides her begins to vibrate, she picks it up and it’s her niece
