Mr. Wilson came from his meeting after a few minutes to meet Amelia at the reception. He greeted her warmly and quickly ushered her into his main office.
After discussing school work for a while, Amelia quickly changed the subject.
Amelia: Sir, my apologies… It’s not like I’m trying to be nosy, I’m just a little curious… Who’s the lady on your wallpaper? She is really pretty.
Mr. Wilson: You mean my daughter?
Amelia: Daughter? Who is your daughter? I mean, the lady in that photo on your desktop background. The one the whole class saw the other day you were at our school for the seminar on entrepreneurship.
Mr. Wilson: Yes, I know the one you are referring to. The girl in the photo is my daughter. She is in the UK now
Amelia was stunned. “You mean Brenda is your daughter for real?!”
Mr.Wilson: Yes, that’s her name. Do you two know each other? How do you know her name?
Amelia hated Brenda even more but she quickly seized the moment. “Your daughter is not in the UK sir, she is in my school. I get it now, that’s why she was hiding away from you!”
Mr.Wilson: Hold on lady, you must be mistaking someone for my daughter. My daughter had been abroad for the past 8 years, I’m sure this is a mistake.
Amelia: I’m sorry sir. I know your daughter very well. Her attitude on campus has made her very famous.
Mr. Wilson: You seem so sure it’s the same person we are talking about here. What attitude are you talking about by the way?
Amelia quickly reached out into her handbag and brought out the photos of Brenda with Mr Edwards… both of them looking very intimate.
She showed them to Brenda’s father.
Mr. Wilson was shocked when he saw the pictures.
Mr. Wilson: This can’t be! What?! Brenda has been lying to me all this while?
This was turning out better than Amelia had hoped… She was enjoying herself thoroughly. She continued: “Your daughter has been in our school for the past four weeks and she has been going out with some of the lecturers. She also has a guy who she is dating on campus. I’m even meeting her this evening to talk to her about her attitude, as a good friend.”
Mr. Wilson: Do you know where she is now? Take me to her place right away!
Amelia: No sir, I don’t. But like I said, she will be meeting me later this evening. Maybe you can come along then?”
Mr.Wilson: That’s a good idea. Call me when it’s time. I will be there.
Amelia left the office in a hurry so she could prepare for tonight’s meeting.
She hadn’t seen all these coming, but it worked for her. Things only just got better.
Soon it was time for the meeting… Mr. Wilson and Amelia got to the venue an hour earlier.
Brenda and Dave, on the other hand, were preparing to set off. Dave wanted to go with her but she insisted on going alone.
She wanted a girl to girl talk with Amelia.
Eventually, Dave agreed and Brenda left. But Dave couldn’t trust Amelia alone with Brenda so he followed her without letting her know.
Brenda called Amelia on the phone when she arrived the entrance of the proposed meeting point. She came to pick her and ushered her to a table.
She got to the table and came face to face with her father.
Mr. Wilson: “Brenda”
She couldn’t handle it. Nothing had prepared her for this moment. This was certainly not how she planned to meet her father. Without thinking, Brenda ran out of the pub and headed for the road side.
Dave saw her from a distance and tried calling but it was too late. A vehicle came out of nowhere, took a sharp turn and crashed into her. Brenda fell down with a thud…
…. Hang on for the next Episode….
