‘Mum, did you see that Carol girl? I tried talking to her but she snubbed me’ Fifi whined. The girl was good, if not better than Bola but Bola’s voice was a rare blend and it intimidated her more.

‘I saw her…’ Evelyn focused her eyes on the girl whose mother was stole everything from her

A Song for Bola – Episode 13

Brianna listened quietly as her colleagues gave their opinion on the song Bola had just sang. It’s not like she wasn’t impressed, the girl had talent no doubt but she hated her very much.

She looked like the same girl that had stolen her fiancé from her…it happened the previous year and the media weren’t calm about it…

He wasn’t a celebrity like herself, Alex was a business man who loved to stay out of the limelight…but dating her didn’t keep him out of it much…

Brianna as she was popularly known, was one of the few single Nigerian celebrities who managed to keep their love life a secret….but there was always a loophole somewhere and the media still got to know about whom she was dating…

Alex was the only man that suited her lifestyle… he loved her very much and treated her like his idol…then slowly, she saw him for whom he really was…

She’d gone through his phone one day, and had found a message on his BBM, she’d traced the pin to one ‘Bee’…

They were having a torrid love affair…the problem was that Bee wasn’t the only one…he had several others…

Then she’d confronted him and hell broke loose…that day was the worst in her life… Alex had given her a black eye and somehow what transpired between them leaked to the media…it was a very ugly incident and that was the end of that relationship….

‘it’s your turn Brianna….what do you think of her performance’? the host directed the question to her…

‘uhmmm…it was okay…’ Brianna voiced…. She had nothing else to say to this girl that played a role in her heartbreak…. She had her plans…she wasn’t going home with this trophy…

‘you seem absent minded’ Miss Mo stared at her co-judge wondering what went on in her mind…. ‘am fine Mo…just randy thoughts…how my life was before I became a celebrity’…

‘I totally understand that’ Miss Mo smiled…she understood that part of life…it seemed easier than the complexities surrounding the spotlight …

‘ladies be careful now…the camera is coming towards our direction’ Qadri warned the two…he rolled his eyes and focused on the papers before him…

He liked her…she was so beautiful and she sang like an angel…could he have her? Since the first day he listened to her voice….Bola had found a place in his dreams…. He wanted her so badly in his bed…he knew that was unprofessional but he couldn’t help it…

‘babes why the sudden change’? Ene was baffled as a frown passed Carol’s cute features….

‘is it Vega? I thought he apologized for that’ she continued but her friend was silent…

After her performance, they’d been directed to the backroom where they’d met other performers….many came around Carol, they admired her and wished her well…

She’d been very lively moments ago but that changed as that girl mounted the stage…

‘I know her’ Carol bit her lip… she’d seen her once with Ismail….though it was brief…she hardly forgot a female face that had anything to do with Ismail or Vega….it usually turned out to be Vega’s other lover…

‘nawa u o…how you take sabi that babe…no be me and you stand here since’? her friend sounded ridiculous…they’d shared a lot of mutual friends but this Bola girl wasn’t one of them…

‘I don’t like her much…’ Carol was embittered by her performance….the way the crowd had applauded…they easily forgot her own charms….

The judges had been too nice to her especially Qadri ….was there something going on? What gave her consolation was the fact that Brianna was indifferent about that performance and more importantly, she was the chief judge…her say was final…

‘I don’t like the way you’re sounding Carol…you aren’t even sure you’ve met her yet…’ Ene was shocked …

She liked the girl’s performance, it was flawless…
‘do I have to’? Carol hissed….sometimes her friend was as annoying as hell…

‘to be honest Carol, I think you’re just insecure about yourself….. just remember that even if you lose, there are other opportunities….the most important thing is for you to enjoy yourself and be happy’ she knew her friend would hate her for saying the truth …but what were friends for?

‘you talk like a fool sometimes Ene… who told you I plan on losing’? many times she’d planned on dumping Ene….but that was risky….Ene knew much about her…even the dirtiest of secret she feared Vega would discover….

‘whatever…’ Ene shrugged …truth wasn’t acceptable… She paused for a while then continued…

‘did you notice that Fifi girl? I hadn’t seen her in the last two auditions….it looks weird’ Ene had observed, her face seemed knew…

‘who cares’? Carol hissed and picked up her phone… she was done here…Vega had much explaining to do… he was drifting from her slowly and she feared the worst…. Had he found out? But she could explain… it wasn’t intentional….she hated herself more anytime she thought about that day…

‘let’s go’ she called to Ene and they both made for the back door.

Bola was overjoyed by reception of her song….people congratulated her even as she made for the backroom… the technicians, instrumentalists, other contestants too…

The judges had the nicest words except for one….Brianna…. she wasn’t too impressed… what bothered her more, was the way the lady stared at her…. Had she offended her in any way? She quickly dismissed the thoughts….as she sounded paranoid…

Maybe she was in a rush or something but she noticed her ….she’d tried to avoid the clash…it was too late, She bumped into Carol…

‘awww….you’re so stupid’ Carol groaned….was she blind or what? ‘sorry Carol, but I think you should be the one apologising’ Ene offered…

For no reason, her friend had bumped into Bola…she wasn’t surprised… That was typical of Carol… ‘am sorry …’ Bola remained glued to where she stood….surprised by the weight of Carol’s words…. ‘fool…stay out of my way’ She hissed angrily and left….
Bola couldn’t move… was this really happening?

‘hey, don’t mind her… she’s just in a bad mood, her boyfriend hasn’t returned her calls’…Ene smiled at the poor girl…

‘oh…’ Bola returned the smile and kept on walking……Vega…that name pulsated her heart…she wished he was hers…

She scanned the room briefly….where was Rose?

Before she could begin a search, a hand warmed her shoulder…she turned to see who it was… She was surprised to see him….what was he doing here?

‘Hello Bola…..’ he smiled and threw his arms around her.
