Celine and the Hoffman’s.
Chidinma Jerry. m.
The interviewer continued.
” good day madam”.
“good day “.
“what can you tell us about Gretel Hoffman “.
” I don’t know who that is.
She showed her a picture of Gretel
“ooh the pretty girl who came on the rainy day”.
S” how long has she been visiting”.
” I ave never seen her it was only on that day in fact I was the one who gave her the towel she tied while the maids washed her uniform”.
The speaker turns to the audience
so now someone should join me to wonder what kind of lover or sex partner or girlfriend never visits
Some of us may ask y didn’t Gretel go home
The driver is here to clear that
“good day sir
” good day
” pls tell us why you didn’t you take Gretel home
” I called Gretel on phone when I heard of my sons accident she told me to go that she would call me after class
“in my haste I forgot my phone in the car and ran into the hospital and that should be when Gretel called .
” so by what time did you enter the hospital
” by what time did you realize her call
” 3:50 but the call started from 2 pm
” thank you
I will like to talk to a staff from prestigious
” Good day ma
” good day
” pls by what time is the gate closed on Thursdays
” by 2
” thank you
Lastly I will talk to simeon
” simeon by what time did you pick up gretel and why
” the rain was heavy Gretel was realy soiled and there was no sign of her driver coming so I had to help her it was by 2:30
” thank you
The speaker turns to the audience
Now the story is easily narrated
Gretels driver left to visit his sick son in the hospital and he forgot his phone in the car though he took permission from gretel and she promised to call him when she needed his services, when Gretel called her driver He didn’t pick up she waited for him outside till the heavy rain started when she tried runing back into the school compound the gate was locked few minutes later SIMEon arrived and took Gretel to his house his maid handed her a towel as they washed her cloths simeon being a nice guy lended his “girlfriends” cloth to gretel which she wore and waited for her driver who came and picked her immiediately after he saw the call
pls what is so wrong in this scene I believe that next time before we nail someone we should be sure of what we are saying
lastly I will refer to the blogger who started this whole thing
” what do you have to say
” am sorry Gretel am sorry to the Hoffman’s family I wasn’t sure of what I saw and I spoilt an innocent girls reputation please forgive me
” with this the live show comes to an end
Gretel switched of the television and hieved a sigh of relieve
” I cant believe i didnt even let you explain dear am sorry
” its all right dad
” come here
She hugged her father and her mother joined them
SIMEON was sitting down in the living room few minute after the show was over and to his greatest surprise his father walked into the living room
” hy dad what a surprise
” how are you
“I am good
” I came to confirm whether my house had finally become a media house
” I thought as much you can never realy come to visit me
Mr standford sat down on the chair
” I dont know what you love about this place why did you leave the state’s
” what’s the point I lived with you but I still felt like I lived alone so I thought maybe i should just live alone
Just then Mr standford saw the drug on the table
” what’s this drug for
” nothing it’s just supplements
” well then eat better
” I am leaving son , got a meeting with Carl.
” good bye..
he stood up and took one of the drugs which simeon didn’t notice him slip into his pocket
He then walked out of the house
SIMEON lay back on the couch

“Uhhmmm well the channel…”, she tried moving to take the remote but he held her hands and kissed her lips….Gretel opened her eye wide , what was going on….She still kissed him back…after a whike the both unlocked from the kiss… She looked up and down innocently as her link lips brightened the moment..
Gretel scratched her hair gently

Simeon arrived home where he met his Head maid who handed him his drug.
” simeon I think you should tell your father about your condition my dear”.
” I don’t want to, actually when I found out I was sick I was happy at least its a deadly disease which can kill me and reunite me with mum
I knew dad will find out about the illness if I lived with him that’s why I came back here I never took any of the drugs prescribed to me I just waited for death to come, am still waiting
” simeon !!!!?.
” but I met someone, gretel Hoffman , She makes me want to live so that’s why I started taking those drugs if I don’t die I would like to live so I can be with that person….
” then you have to call your father so your treatment can be taken serious”.
” ahhhhh its pointless, what’s the point, gretel might not love me back right, so who Will I live for.
” you can never realy tell simeon.
” you promised not to inform dad right I hope you keep your word I don’t want to involve him in this, he has an empire to take care of.
“as you wish”, the maid said ….
