It had been two weeks since Diana asked Seyi out for lunch and they had become fast friends; they talked constantly on the phone and chatted about everything in the world except Biola. They were afraid to bring her name up in their conversations. Diana smiled sheepishly when she received an email from Seyi inviting her to join him in Dubai; her flight ticket was attached to the email and he told her not to bother about any kind of expense, all she had to do was fly in.
“I am going to Dubai this weekend” she whispered to Biola in a very excited manner, Biola asked her who she was going with and she told her it was a senator she met the week before “he is in Dubai for business, so he invited me to join him” she said casually praying that she was convincing enough.
When she told Biola that the man told her not to bother about any expense, Biola advised her to still be prepared “anything can happen, you always have to have your own money in case” Biola warned then she asked her to transfer all her money to Grande bank so that if anything went wrong she could easily help her since she worked there and could have access to her account. Diana thought it a good idea and did as Biola said.
The awaited weekend arrived as fast as it could and nobody was more excited than Diana was; of course she was a very beautiful girl who had dated very wealthy and powerful men but something about gaining the attention of someone who had the hots for the most beautiful…Biola made her ego soar higher than the strongest eagle on earth.
Her entire experience was VIP, from the car that picked her up from home to the concierge that took care of her at the airport; she felt like the first lady. She knew that Seyi was wealthy but she didn’t know how wealthy or well-connected he was.
The flight was over before her third movie was over; another concierge escorted her to a Bentley waiting for her at the exit. “I see you Seyi” she thought to herself as she sipped out of a glass of champagne. The ride was very smooth and Diana did not know when she fell asleep.
“Miss, it’s time to get out” the voice of the driver woke her up “what?” Diana asked puzzled “we have arrived” he said. Diana looked around and saw that they were in the middle of the dessert “but we are in the middle of a dessert” she pointed out “this is where I was told to stop… your money ends here” before Diana could ask any more questions she and her things were out of the car and the driver drove off.
She didn’t understand why Seyi told the driver to bring her to the dessert, she didn’t want to panic so she made herself believe that he had an Arabian surprise for her so she called him “hello” a girl answered Seyi’s phone “who is this?” Diana asked “it is Biola” the shock Diana felt almost made her drop her phone but she held on tight.
“Who did you go to Dubai to look for? Seyi?” Biola laughed scornfully “Seyi is not in Dubai he is here with me; as a matter of fact I am the one who sent you to Dubai… I froze your account so that you will prostitute yourself for money to leave that place since that is what you like to do anyway” Biola sneered and cut the line before Diana could even grasp what she was hearing.
Every time Diana contacted Seyi he told Biola about it, he showed her every text and picture Diana sent him. Biola said and did nothing until Diana sent him a picture of her in her underwear then she became angry and decided to set her up.
Seyi did not want to co-operate with Biola’s plan but she threatened to never speak to him again “prove to me that you have nothing with her” she said like a debating snake so he agreed. She told Seyi to continue talking and chatting to Diana; she also told him to invite her to Dubai but she bought the ticket with her money, a one way ticket and advised Diana to put all her money in Grande bank where she had the power to tell Mr Alkali the MD to give command for Diana’s account to be frozen so that she wouldn’t have access to her money.
Diana was screwed; she had no money, food or water in the middle of a dessert she didn’t know how to navigate. The shock she felt made her body and mind weak, so she sat on her luggage and cried helplessly. Diana had never felt more stupid and worthless, it was the great crash of the soaring Eagle that was her ego; she thought she was the best in playing dirty games, games that won her all the men she pursued but unfortunately for her Biola was the sulphur that stunk up the pit of hell.
