fierce episode 9
Ehi and Cicero walked hand in hand as they strolled their neighborhood. It was dark but they were still a lot of people roaming about and going about their business. Earlier they had seen a movie,it was a new romantic comedy film and it was great and from there they proceeded to a restaurant to eat.
Usually she never stayed out this late but Simeon was out of town so she could do whatever she wanted.
They walked in silence till they got to her door.
“I really had fun today,thank you.” She said looking at him in his eyes.
He stared at her for a while before replying “No I should be the one thanking you, I really enjoyed myself today. ” he said with a chuckle.
They stood staring at each other in awkward silence until she broke eye contact and looked at the floor “I guess this is good night.”
He dipped his hands into his pockets and nodded but he still did not move. He took a step forward and closed the gap between them and before she could react he leaned in and kissed her. It took her a few seconds to get her bearing and then kissed him back. He broke the kiss and pushed her against the door and resumed from where he dropped off but this time it was passionate like they was this chemistry between them that they just discovered. “Yo,we either call it a night right now or I won’t be able to hold back.” he whispered in her ears.
She didn’t reply him instead she turned around and used her keys to open the door and stepped inside. He didn’t follow her and she turned back to look at him.
“Are you sure you want this? Like I want it and all but I could be patient and wait until you are —” she cut his sentence short by standing on her toes and kissing him. He needed no further persuasion than that because he stepped in and kicked the door closed with the sole of his boots.
They lay,side by side in silence with each to their own thought. After a while he leaned on his side and using his elbows to support himself he said in a low voice “You know you should have told me right” she stared at him blindly “It was your first time,you should have at least given me a heads up,you know.”
She turned to face him “Are you complaining?”
He looked at her as if she was a runaway patient from bedlam “No I am not. I’m not just comfortable, I feel like I seduced you or something.” he said waving his hands in the air.
“Well didn’t you?” She replied.
“Hell no,I did not,it was mutual and we knew what we were doing,”
She laughed for a while then said “then stop beating yourself up. I knew what was going to happen and I did it anyway. On Simeon’s bed for that matter.” she said with a chuckle.
“It still doesn’t make me feel better tho……So tell me,did you like it?” He asked as he used his fingers to rub her chin.
She chose to ignore his question and just laid there while his fingers that had since left her chin and was tracing her body and leaving her hot with need. She shut her eyes and silenced a moan as they continued their wicked investigation on her.
“You like that right?” He whispered in her ears and she nodded in agreement “Well you are not getting shii until you reply me.” he said and withdrew his hands.
She opened her eyes and then wrinkled her nose in mock annoyance “I will answer your question when I have others to compare you to,” she said laughing “between isn’t it time to go home. Are you sure your mum is not worried sick?”
He laughed at her question “Unlike you,some of us are not monitored and are left to make our devices.” He rolled over and was on top her in a flash but he used his elbows to support his weight. He looked her directly in the eyes and said ” I doubt you will ever have someone else to compare me to because you are now mine and I don’t share ” he used his tongue to lick her ear and whispered “I don’t share…I never share… not now… not ever” and then started to trail hot kisses along her neck.
They spent the remainder of his holidays together. Whenever she was not working,she was with him. They visited museums, went shopping ,worked out together. She sometimes followed him to the court whenever he went to play with other guys in the neighborhood.
Since Simeon returned from his trip and they couldn’t be together at her place,she always came to his room. At first she wasn’t comfortable especially with the fact that his mum was downstairs but he quickly put her mind to rest. His mum never said a word to her about the relationship but she was willing to bet all that she had that Ms Smalls was aware of what was going on under her room. She always had this funny look on her face whenever she spoke with Ehi and since there was no hate in her voice or actions, it was relief to know that she approved of the relationship.
It was his last day at home and she laid across on his bed while he did some last minute arrangements.
“I’m going to miss you.” she said
He looked across at her and walked over. He placed his hands in her own and lifted her to a sitting position at the edge of the bed before proceeding to squat before her “I’m also going to miss you too Hilz—” Hilz was a nickname he gave her. It was a play on her name since Ehi was pronounced “Air-he”, he started calling her “he” and after getting alot of warnings from her,he styled it to Hilz and even after pleading with him,he refused to stop and the name stuck. Even in the salon the girls now called her Hilz. ” — you know its necessary for me to leave. Just close your eyes and before you know it two years will be over and I will drafted into the league and I will be able to provide for us and we could start our own little family and I promise to come see you whenever I get the chance.” He lifted her hands to his lips and kissed her wrists “I love you babe,that’s all that really matters right now.”
She wrapped her arms round his neck “I know and I love you too but its going to be months before I see you again and I don’t know how I will cope.”
He placed his hands on the left part of her chest “I’m right here babe,plus I’m going to call you always. We will work out fine you’ll see.” he said assuringly while he wiped the tears that was rolling down her eyes.
“But I am scared.”
“Don’t be… I got something for you,” he reached into his pocket and brought out a gold necklace, he opened the pendant and the letter C was engraved in it, ” Use this to always remember me.” she lifted her hair while he clasped it round her neck “There you go.” he murmured
She lifted the necklace “It’s so beautiful, I love it.”
“I’m glad that you do”
“I also have something for you,” she brought out a ring “Yes I know you will someday wear championship rings and all but I wanted you to have mine first,” she wore it on his index finger “Since you always call me Hilz even tho I’ve asked you not to. I had the jeweler —” he cut her sentence short as he covered her lips with his own.
Just like he said it would,two years passed by in a blink of an eye. She had gotten more jobs but nothing major. The only thing that seem to have grown in her life was her relationship with Cicero and her friendship with Mani.
Cicero was having the best year of his life. He had been selected as the #3 overall pick by the LA Falcons and he was currently training with the team.
Her year wasn’t going so great even tho she got more modelling gigs, she still had nothing to show for it. She had no idea how much she was being paid because Simeon handled all of it. Whenever she tried to find out the exact amount she was being paid,he ignored her rather he told her about how expensive it was to take care of her. He gave her little money from time to time but she suspected that those were just peanuts from what she was really entitled to.
She celebrated her nineteenth birthday with Mani and Christian who was a photographer and Mani’s roommate at a club. Simeon had earlier given her a thousand dollars to celebrate. Cicero had sent her a pair of brown leather lace-up boots. Nessa as usual had sent another gold wristwatch, this was the third time in a row that she had done that. Ms Smalls had baked a cake for her and the ladies in the salon had sang for her earlier in the day. It was the best birthday ever.
Two days after her birthday, Ms Smalls was hit by a stray bullet on her way back from church. She died on the way to the hospital. Cicero’s team allowed him to come home to mourn and bury his mother.
Luckily for her,she had no bookings at that period so they were together for most of the time. She helped out with the funeral arrangements because he was worn out with so much grief. He hardly spoke and ate very little. She tried her best to console and be there for him at all time. She tried not to rush him and just let him cope the best way he could. She knew how painful it was for him especially with the fact that his mum had been his everything, he had never seen his father and had no idea who he was. His mum single handedly raised him and went out of her way to make sure he never lacked anything. She knew how close they were and she felt his pain.
Once again they were in his room,it was almost like a replica of two years ago except this time he was lying down while she was helping him arrange his things.
“You should come with me to LA tomorrow.” he said
She walked over to the bed and laid down beside him “I wish I could but you know that’s not possible.”
He hissed and sat upright “That’s bullshit and you know it. Why don’t you just come with me. Your modelling career is not even picking up. You told me you suspected Simeon of embezzling your money so please tell me what exactly is keeping you here”
She sat up too and place her hand on his back “what’s keeping me here is my career,I’m not going to leave it because its not picking up. I’m going to continue trying until I get where I want to be. I have always been very supportive of your career, I don’t understand why you won’t do the same for me.”
“Don’t try to bring something else up. I have been very supportive and you know it. I can’t be flying back here like before. Things have changed and we need to make some changes too. You can always continue with your modelling,all I’m saying is you do that from LA. I don’t have tons of money yet but I can provide for us and we will be just fine.” He said in an angry tone.
She removed her hands from his back ” I’m sorry to disappoint you but I’m not moving. I love you but we both know the best place for me to succeed is here in New York. We have worked just fine for the past two years,why can’t it continue like that?” She asked.
He brought his knees to his chest and wrapped his arms round his legs “I’m selling this place.” He said quietly “There is nothing to come back to here for me. I love you and I really want us to work out but I don’t see that happening with me on the west coast and you on the east coast. I know you feel we have all the time in the world but the truth is we don’t. One minute we are here the next minute we are gone…gone forever.” He sobbed.
She wrapped both her arms around him “I’m right here babe. I’m not going anywhere. We can work this out,trust me. I got you.” she said.
He turned and faced her “Are you sure?” He asked and she nodded her head and leaned over and kissed him. He kissed her back and they fell back on the bed.
She had a shoot the next day so she left early in the morning. Once she was through,she returned back but found the building locked. She went up to her apartment and found a note addressed to her on the floor as soon as she opened the door. She quickly opened the note and read its content.
I hate myself for doing this but I know it will be impossible to say these words to you. I thought about our conversation last night and came to a conclusion that we were better off if we ended this relationship. We both want different things and it will be selfish for me to insist you give up your dream. I love you and I always will but right now its best we go our separate ways. I don’t know what the future holds for us but I can only hope and pray that we will find our way back to each other. I wish you all the best in your endeavors.
She couldn’t believe what she just read. She scanned the note over and over hoping its content would change but it didn’t. She forced her limbs to carry her over to her couch. She laid down and began to weep. She cried for hours until she fell asleep.2+July 11, 2019 at 10:50 am #1327939

Ehi was in a drunken haze for the next eight weeks. She went through her days like a robot. She hardly ever ate, didn’t care about her looks or appearance. Life seem to stop meaning anything to her.
She kept hoping it was just a bad dream, one she would wake up from and find out that her life was still intact but it was not to be. She waited for Cicero to call her and tell her how big a mistake he had made by ending their relationship but he never called. When she got tired of waiting for him to call, she took matters into her own hands.
She tried his line but it was not connecting. It seemed he had changed his number. She called the agency that represented him and also his trainer trying to get his new number but to no avail. The people probably thought she was an obsessed fan or even worse a groupie,the only good thing was that she had been smart enough to give them a false name that couldn’t be linked back to her.
With each day passing she kept hoping he would miraculously reach out to her and when that didn’t happen, she started to really come in terms with the breakup.
At first,she started to cry and react to little things and then came perpetual sadness and then her perspective on the world started to change. She wanted desperately to reach out to someone but at the same time she couldn’t.
She started going through periods where all she wanted to do was sleep, sleep and more sleep. She shut everyone out and spent her days in solitude. When Mani and Christian had tried to find out what was wrong she pretended like she was okay and when they persisted she ignored them until they gave up and let her be.
When she had been told by Simeon that she was to have her first fashion spread, she didn’t feel anything. She was numb and couldn’t even get herself to pretend like she was happy about it. She would rather be left alone but she knew she couldn’t voice it out because this spread equals more publicity and more publicity equals more money and Simeon would not let anything come between him and his dear coins.
On the day of the shoot, she wished she was anywhere but there. They have been shooting since dawn and she was tired to her bones. When they had earlier had a lunch break,she had rejected everything since she had been feeling nauseous and smell of food irritated her.
She managed in her condition to continue the shoot but towards the end she started feeling dizzy. She used every strength she had within her to complete the shoot.
Once it was over. She tried to step away but was blocked by the art director. His name was Stanley, an Irish man that had pale skin with red hair. He was a short and plump man with protruding stomach. He had been making advances towards her for a while now but she had ignored him. She didn’t feel like being in a relationship with anyone at the moment and Stanley wasn’t really her type. He was notorious for making a pass on every female he works with. His favorite line was telling them how he could make them famous. A lot of women had fallen for the line and their career still hadn’t taken off.
She was in no mood for his games today so she ignored him and tried to follow another path. He grabbed her hand and pulled her towards him.
“Where do you think you are going miss?” He said in his annoying voice.
“A place called none of your business. Now excuse me.” She said and yanked her hand from his grasp. She gave him a stare down and continued “The next time you touch me again,best believe it would be the last time you make use of your hands… You feel me?” She gave a long hissed and walked past him,she hadn’t gone three steps when she blanked out.
She woke up in the hospital to mind blowing news that she was nine weeks pregnant. She had collapsed due to hunger and lack of care for herself. The doctor had kept her for two extra days before discharging her.
In the two days,she had thought hard and well to see if she wanted to keep the pregnancy. She had never wanted kids due to how she was raised and also because she was terrified that if she gives birth,she might turn into her mother. She thought about raising the child. She didn’t have enough resources to look after herself and she doubted that she would be able to take care of the child well.
She knew within her that she would be doing the child a huge favour by not bringing him or her into this wicked world but there was this little voice telling her to keep it. After all the child will be her only link to Cicero. While she might not have him in her life,she will always have the child and whatever love she had for him,she would transfer to their child.
At the moment,she made the decision to keep the pregnancy and go out of her way to be the best mom in the world. She wouldn’t let her mother’s mistake control her life. She was not sure about a lot of things but one thing she knew for certain was that she was nothing like her mother and she intended to make this work. She had no idea how her non existent career would survive this but she was willing to brave out the storm.
All hell broke loose when she went home. Simeon was having none of it and insisted that she had an abortion but for once,she was able to stand her ground and rebuff him.
The next morning she went out to shoot an ad and when she returned later in the evening. She found her things outside and the door was locked. She tried her key but the door wouldn’t open. She searched for a note for any explanation but she found none.
She sat on the floor next to her bags,waiting for Simeon to return. After waiting for four hours and there was no sign of him. She picked her bags up and went downstairs to find a cab that will use to Mani’s place.1+July 13, 2019 at 7:35 am #1328335
