Our Best Friends Wedding: Episode 12: El Capitano

This was not the expected outcome. Nobody was supposed to get hurt. Not him, not any of the chosen 19.

Especially not Jade.

It had been a month since he’d done the nasty with Jade. The nasty.
How could he even call something so awesome by such a distant misnomer? “The nasty?” he thought. For it had been anything but. Life had to go on though.

Two days after he and Jade had hooked up, he’d gotten a call.
“Hi. Who’s speaking?”
A gruff voice. “It’s me.”
“Me. The Captain as I hear you all like to refer to me…” Charles’ blood paused in mid-flow as he tried to catch his breath.

“Ggggood evening,” Charles stuttered.
“Coward. You hear the voice of a real man and you start stammering.”

Ordinarily, Charles wouldn’t stand for such insults. Especially from someone with whom he’d had relatively little interaction. However, today he offered up no protests. He couldn’t deny to himself that he probably deserved it…

“You’re lucky you didn’t sleep with my wife all those years ago. You’d be missing your penis by now.” Charles eyes widened with fear. Life without a penis would be unthinkable.
“I’d never do that now. Never. What the hell men?”
“Good. Now what is this I hear you’ve done with Jade?” Silence. Very awkward. The Captain sighed loudly. Must be a horrible snorer, thought Charles. The Captain chose to continue:
“I heard about it and I’d like to ask: why?”
Why, Charles thought to himself. He couldn’t bring himself to answer. Why? He spoke up: “I’ve been asking myself the same thing for a while now.”
“And what have you come up with?”
“Nothing worth saying, I assure you.” Again, the Captain sighed.
“You’re a man Charles. At least I hope you are. You have but one mandate: fix this. For all our sakes. Please.” And the line went dead.

Charles dropped the phone and ran his fingers through his hair, cursing under his breath as he did so.

Why? And had it been all worth it?

He brought out his writing pad and wrote at the top of a free page in bold type:

He drew a crooked line underneath the words then he paused while staring into the ceiling. He looked down, fighting tears,
and continued to write…

Midway through, he stopped again. He pulled his phone out and began typing a message with a wry smile on his face:
“I think we’re all clear babe. All clear.”
A few moments later, with his eyes glued to the handset the whole time, a notification came up: “Delivered: Eno.” He maintained the wry smile and went back to writing…


It seemed out of the blue, surreal even, when his phone rang and he saw her name on the screen. He held his breath and counted to five before he picked it…
“Hey. Guess you’re all still mad at me…” Her chirpy voice cut him off.
“No, you numbskull! You’re not that important!” That admission stung Charles but the brightness in her voice told him that the ugliness between them might be at an end.
“Alright, Kemi. What’s up?” He sounded drained. Defeated.
“Don’t be such a whiner. Ahn ahn, who stole your cookies? Don’t sound so beaten up jo! Look I have info. Serious info. It’s about Jade.” Charles perked up. The emotional rollercoaster was becoming a bit much for him to handle.
“Go on,” he said.
“Well… It appears you weren’t the only one she screwed or was screwing as it is.”
“Uh huh…” He answered,
“Yeah… Well… Jade’s kinda pregnant right now.”
“Holy Geronimo! Wh-wh-wh-whaat?! How pregnant? Ho-wh-whe…?!”
“The Captain WAS right. You DO stutter under pressure! Hold your horses. It’s not yours. Thankfully.”
“Thankfully,” he repeated. Right then, Charles didn’t know what to feel.
“But that’s only part of the gist o…” She continued. “The guy responsible, Mayowa, is keen and it seems your little mixer with Jade the other day straightened her out. Helped her understand her feelings. Charles are you there?”
“I’m here.” He muttered,
“So the major gist I called to give you is this…” Charles braced himself and sighed.

“Our best friend is getting married!!!”

    Posted by taiofierce | August 4, 2011, 11:08 am
  56. Asin, I’m pissed. What is wrong with a nollywood story, it gives us all a respite from the realities of this messed up world. Y can’t Charles and Jade just end up together???

    Posted by Sam-Sam | August 4, 2011, 11:12 am
  57. Our best friend’s wedding had better be about charles and jade somehow getting married! >:o

    Posted by Moyo_A | August 4, 2011, 11:35 am

  59. Let me jst say…..Finally!!! I’ve been waiting for this post for what seems like months! And I dunno what y’all are excited abt… really not finding this twist funny! 😦

    Posted by @eznira | August 4, 2011, 11:50 am
  60. Infact, Tula, u just ruined my day. I know it seems kinda ridiculous but I’ve gotten attached to Jade and charles. 😦

    I kinda have a feeling that the Charles/Eno gist is the real shocker of the series though.

    Posted by Sam-Sam | August 4, 2011, 11:54 am
  61. Cos I bow to only one Domina. I should know who exactly. Thank you Dominatrix. *bows* As you were.

    Posted by Rose Anne | August 4, 2011, 1:06 pm
  65. Nice twist. Toobad though, Charles’ loss.

    Posted by theGeneralsDaughter | August 4, 2011, 1:14 pm

    Posted by kayshawy | August 4, 2011, 4:19 pm
  69. LOL.. I predicted this twist a while back.. I’m bad like that. 😉
    I’m going to get a lil corny and say: no matter how much love there is between too people, some things just aren’t meant to be.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah its just a story but Woohoo!!!! My girl Jade is getting married. 🙂

    Posted by Jasmine | August 4, 2011, 5:55 pm
  70. Jst read d whole series and I’m like – Wow!
    Great Story (Y)

    Posted by yettty | August 4, 2011, 8:51 pm
  71. I ve said this before and I ll say it again, great story guys. The denouement is to die for, I hope the climax would be equally awesome. Poor Charles. Sometimes you act so late when you have a friend you really like and you forget that they might have already fallen for someone else. He played way too many games with her. Sometimes its good to be straight up.

    Posted by Sir Fariku | August 4, 2011, 10:46 pm
  72. Okay! Fuckiddy wowzerrrrrs! Ogini? Kilode? Menene? Wetin?

    But next thursday’s not far again sha, I can’t wait to see the fantastic turn that all this shenanigans will take.

    Thumbs u to thetoolsman and cikkO 😉
