“Is your mum coming?”
“Not yet. I’ll call her after Abena delivers. I don’t want her to come and start fussing over everyone.” Tobi said.
“True. Did you get to talk to her before she went in?” Joseph asked.
“Yeah. She totally fell for my romantic speech.” Tobi bragged. He knew better than to tell Joseph that Abena wasn’t able to give him and answer on his marriage proposal. Joseph would laugh for years.
He would ask her again, and have a very big rock to go with it.
“Good. I’m glad you didn’t listen to me when I told you not to do the contract thing. If you did, you wouldn’t have met her.” Joseph said.
“Yeah well, you’re a very bad lawyer.” Tobi joked and they laughed.
“Thanks man.” Tobi finally said.
“Talking some sense into me and not standing by while I was loosing the love of my life.” Tobi explained.
“Thats the job description of Tobi Ademi’s best friend.” Joseph said with a laugh.
“Well you’re so d--n good at your job, I don’t think you would need a replacement.”
“Thanks. We would be there soon.” Joseph replied and hung up.
After what seemed like years but was actually just hours, a tired doctor came out of the delivery room.
This is it, Tobi thought.
His family was on the other side of the door; the love of his life and his newly born children. He didn’t regret a thing.
If someone told him a year ago that he would one day, be sitting in the lobby of a hospital, waiting for the woman that he had unintentionally fell in love with to give birth to his children, he would have laughed for days.
Abena had taught him a lot of things. She had taught him to live in the moment, to have fun, to eat carelessly, to be something more than just a billionaire.
But most of all, she had taught him how to love.
He walked up to Doctor Uche expectantly.
“Mr. Ademi, congratulations. The mother and the children are both okay and healthy.” Tobi grunted in response.
“Although something unexpected happened. Miss. -” He was interrupted by a nurse who walked out of the delivery room with a baby wrapped in a shawl. She walked up to him and he peered at the little human.
“This one’s a boy.” The nurse said, referring to the crying child. Tobi admired the baby, he was rendered speechless, although he wasn’t sure if he looked like him or like Abena, but he was already in love with his baby boy.
“I’ll get him all cleaned up for you.” She said and walked away.
Tobi looked at the doctor with a wide grin on his face.
“You were saying?” Tobi asked, still smiling.
“Yes. The most unpredictable thing happened, Miss. Omotosho-”
He was interrupted again by another nurse who had another baby wrapped in a shawl. She walked up to Tobi and he looked at the baby.
“This one’s also a boy.”
“He’s perfect.” Tobi whispered, while the nurse tried to stop the baby from crying by rocking him gently in her arms.
“I have to get him cleaned up, then you can look at him for as long as you want.” The nurse said and walked away.
Twin boys. He sighed happily.
He didn’t get the girl he wanted, true, but he already loved his boys so much, and he was going to care for them with everything he had.
“Yes, doctor Uche. Sorry, what were you saying?” Tobi asked again and the doctor gave an impatient sigh.
“Miss. Omotosho gave birth to-”
He was interrupted, again, by another nurse carrying a baby. Tobi raised his eyebrow in confusion as the woman walked towards him.
“This is the last one, a girl. Such a precious little thing.” The nurse smiled, and Tobi’s mouth hung in surprise.
“That’s what I was trying to tell you Mr. Ademi. Miss. Omotosho gave birth to triplets. Two boys and a girl.” The doctor smiled.
“Yes! Oh yes yes yes! This is perfect.” Tobi exclaimed, pumping his fists in the air. His voice startled his little girl and she started crying.
“Oh, I’m sorry love.” He whispered to her. “I’m just so happy to meet you.”
“Let me get her cleaned up for you sir.” The nurse said and walked away.
“Thank you doctor Uche. Can I go and see her now?” Tobi asked, bursting with happiness.
“Yes, you can. I’ve already cleaned her up.” A nurse said, walking out of the room.
“You can quickly see her before we move her to another room.” The doctor said and Tobi nodded.
Two boys and a girl.
As Tobi walked into the delivery room, with his confident and infamous smirk plastered on his face, there was only one thing on his mind:
He was a sharp shooter indeed.
THE END+4February 23, 2018 at 3:59 pm #1182932
Some of you are… unhappy, with the way the book ended. Please understand that:
1) The Contract is a NOVELLA. A novella is a book that is too long to be called a short story, but it’s too short to be classified as a novel. I write novellas. That’s just what I do, I’m not good with writing long stories.
2) I think I gave you guys a pretty amazing ending. They end up together, Tobi gets a girl and he learns something. Plus, my last line was pretty funny ?. I’ve been planning that since I started the book.
3)I repeat, there would be NO spin off, sequel or bonus chapters.
Anchor: Hello and welcome to the official interview of the characters from the just finished w-----d novella, ‘The Contract.’ First, we have Mr. Tobi Ademi, the main character of the book. Hello Tobi
Tobi: Can you just ask the questions already? I have things to do.
Anchor: Right, of course. @PriyankaAgnihotri wants to know,’Will you kiss me?’
Tobi: That’s a very odd way to start the interview, and no, I don’t kiss strangers, or any other girl now, or else Abena would kill me. (Laughs)
Anchor: (laughs) of course.
@SkittlesAsh asks, ‘Why do you want a baby girl?’
Tobi: Well girls spend more money than guys, and I have too much money, I just needed someone to spend it for me. (Laughs) just kidding, I like the idea of a ‘daddy’s girl’
Anchor: thats very cute. You got your wish. @_Dorothy_ asks, ‘Why didn’t you want to start a family with Abena?’
Tobi: (sighs) well, I didn’t exactly have a happy family, and I was a player, I didn’t think I had what it takes to start a family. I was afraid that I would mess things up and end up like my dad, but as Jospeh said, ‘If it makes you happy, ignore the crowd and go for it.’
Anchor: yes, that’s very true. @xOXoBOOPoXOx wants to know, ‘How good are your cooking skills.’
Tobi- (smirks), you guys seem to always forget one thing. I’m Tobi Ademi. You can’t use the word ‘good’ to describe my skills, you use the word ‘great’. And I’m pretty great at every single thing. Ask Abena (winks)
Anchor: (coughs awkwardly), we don’t doubt that. @dimplesofficial asks, ‘Why didn’t you want Abena to know you love her?’
Tobi: Well I thought she hated me (shrugs), I wasn’t the nicest person, and I was in denial.
Anchor: and now, we ask, how was The Contract experience?
Tobi: it was pretty good. I enjoyed it, I fell in love and now I have three adorable kids. Can I go now? I have a lot of work to do, and Abena is making spaghetti Bolognese for dinner.
Anchor: (raises eyebrow) O-Kay, thank you sir.
Tobi: (stands up to leave)
Anchor: now, we have Miss. Abena, the main female character of the book. Hello Abena. How are you feeling today?
Abena: (smiles) still tired from the delivery. Let’s just start the questions now?
Anchor: (nods). @dimplesofficial wants to know, ‘Why didn’t you let Tobi know how you feel?’+2February 23, 2018 at 4:02 pm #1182934
Abena- well he was so mean and snobbish, plus I didn’t even think that he would like someone like me. Imagine me going to him and telling him that I like him and then he would na laugh at me. That would be so embarrassing (laughs)
Anchor: (laughs) very true. @PriyankaAgnihotri asks, ‘How do you feel when Tobi cares for you?’
Abena: when he first started caring I was suspicious, because he was so mean in the beginning that then he started acting nice. But I like the fact that I have someone to care for me. All my life, I’ve never had someone to care for me, and now, I have Tobi.
Anchor: awww. That’s good. @weirdo1437 asks How is Demi your child?
Abena: demi is fine. He’s in recovery. And he’s my nephew, although I love him as my child anyway, as Tobi and I are going to adopt him.
Anchor: @xOXoBOOPoXOx wants to know, ‘Have you had any secret or weird food cravings, apart from bananas?’
Abena: Well there was bread, and chocolates. But banana was the main thing.
Anchor: how was The Contract experience in all?
Abena: it was good. I like a happy ending, especially when it’s for me.
Anchor: thank you Abena. Now we have Joseph, Tobi’s best friend and favourite character of most of the readers
Joseph: Well obviously yes I’m the favorite. It’s good that the people in the real world make good choices. (Smirks and winks)
Anchor: (laughs) if you say so. @PriyankaAgnihotri asks, How did it feel when you were a father for the first time?
Joseph: it felt really good, until Dera made me change the pampers. (Shudders and frowns.)
Anchor: (laughs) well, @_Dorothy_ wants to know, ‘If Abena is so attractive, why didn’t you ask her to be your second wife?’
Joseph: meh. (Waves hand dismissively). (1) I love my wife. Dera is enough for me, (2) Abena would slap me if I even mention that, and (3) Tobi would castrate me, give or take. And the woman eats too much! Ahn! Ki lo de? (=meaning what is it?)
Anchor: @xOXoBOOPoXOx asks if you have any funny stories of you and Tobi.
Joseph: (rubs chin) not a lot, you know Tobi is a boring man. I dont even see what Abena is doing with him sef. (Tobi walks on the stage and slaps the back of his head) ow! I rest my case. (Pouts)
Anchor: and @dimplesofficial asks, ‘Why do you like trouble?’
Joseph: I don’t like trouble jare. It’s not my fault that trouble likes me. (Rolls his eyes.)
Anchor: and how was your own The Contract experience?
Joseph: I got a chance to show my amazing-ness to the world, so it was pretty good.
Anchor: (laughs) of course. Now we have Joseph’s wife, Chidera. Hello Dera.
Dera: hello (waves)
Anchor: okay so, @PriyankaAgnihotri asks, ‘What is the most tedious thing you have to do when you have a husband like Joseph?’
Dera: (laughs) making him do what you want. He’s so stubborn, but, luckily for me, he knows not to mess with me. After all, I’m in charge of his food (winks)
Anchor: @_Dorothy_ asks, ‘Are you going to have another baby? Please do.’
Dera: No way! I already have three. Four, if you count my husband. My hands are full.
(Joseph grumbles from behind the set)
Anchor: (laughs)and @xOXoBOOPoXOx wants to know, ‘what kind of puppy did Joseph get you?’
Dera: (smiles dreamily) a German shepherd. I called it blaze.
Anchor: lastly, how was your own The Contract experience.
Dera: (shrugs) it was good. I have a new bestie now (Abena)
Anchor: okay. Now we have Tobi’s mother, Mrs. Ademi, referred to as Mama in the book. Mama, good day.
Anchor: @xOXoBOOPoXOx asks, ‘What are the baby names you migh t have in mind for your grandchildren?’
Mama: hm. Any good Yoruba name is fine.
Anchor: @dimplesofficial asks, ‘How old are you?’
Mama: (frowns) you children of nowadays, didn’t your parents teach you not to ask an elderly person for their age?
Anchor: sorry ma. So ma, how was your The Contract experience?
Mama: inu mi n dun (= meaning I’m happy). Now I have my grandchildren and my son is happy.
Anchor: thank you mama. Now, we have the writer of the book, @blackxbelle.
Anchor: so, @PriyankaAgnihotri wants to know, ‘Will you come on a world tour when your book gets published for your fans around the globe?’
Timi: ehm. I dunno. Thats if my book gets published, and if I have a lot of fans (shrugs )
Anchor: @_Dorothy_ asks, ‘Will you ever put this book in print?’
Timi: if I have the opportunity to, then yes.
Anchor: @chinyereobi asks, ‘Will you write write sequel or spin off after this?’
Timi: nah. I’m working on another book
Anchor: @xOXoBOOPoXOx wants to know, ‘Do you have an actual liking to bananas or is it just a fun joke?’
Timi: (laughs) both. I like bananas, thats my fav fruit and it’s a joke because that’s what Abena likes to eat.
Anchor: Well, how was your The Contract experience?
Timi: I’m happy that I got to publish a book on w-----d, and even happier that other people like it. I didnt think I would get much attention, but I took the chance, and it worked. So if you’re afraid of writing, put your heart into it and take the chance. You never know.
Anchor: thank you very much. And now, we ask you readers: How was your own The Contract experience?+1February 23, 2018 at 9:19 pm #1183116mercyrubyMember
