This week was like a rollercoaster ride from hell for our dear Damalie, as her carefully constructed house of cards began to crumble faster than a cookie in milk. "When it rains, it pours," they say, and for Damalie, it's practically a monsoon.
Let's dive into the circus, starting with Charles, who's about to learn that his dreams of constructing a cardiology unit are not about to happen. Disappointed donors leave him high and dry, and in a desperate attempt, he decides to snag a hefty loan from the bank. But oh no, life's got a wicked sense of humour. The security he puts up for the loan, the D&C building, is about as secure as a teapot because, surprise, it doesn't belong to him and his wife! Cue the dramatic crash of Charles' confidence, and the bank isn't handing out loans—it's serving him with a side of jail time for fraud. Turns out Damalie pulled a fast one by leasing the building instead of buying it with Charles' money. Talk about a plot twist!
Damalie gets wind of what has happened, and speeds home in a frantic panic mode. She has to figure out what on earth to tell Charles, who's meanwhile waiting on her to bail him out. First item on Charles’ agenda: giving Damalie a piece of his mind. Unable to twiddle his thumbs in prison, he dials up his friend Joel for the bail. But Joel's in such a hurry that he leaves his phone behind.
Now, let's shift the spotlight to Isabella, who's been sniffing around Joel's mysterious behaviour like a bloodhound on a scent trail. Suspicion levels skyrocket, and she dives into Joel's phone, uncovering the enigma that is "Forever Love." Cue the phone call, and Damalie, thinking it's Joel, is ready to flee her problems with him. Surprise, surprise—it's Isabella on the other end! Sisterly betrayal alert! Isabella, fuelled by a fiery rage, confronts Damalie and, brace yourselves, whips out a fake pregnant belly. Yes, you read that right.
But hold on, there's more. Maxwell, who's nursing a grudge after Damalie's little stunt with the staged robbery, promises to make her pay. He's en route to unleash havoc on Damalie's already topsy-turvy life.
Charles rushes to the scene, but it's too late. Damalie's lights are out, and she's foaming at the mouth. Maxwell arrives, and Isabella, sans baby bump, adds another layer to this drama lasagna.
Will Damalie wake up to face the music? How long can Isabella keep up the pregnancy charade? It's a soap opera you won't want to miss, airing every Monday to Wednesday at 7:30 pm on Pearl Magic, Pearl Magic Prime, or Pearl Magic Loko. Get ready for more twists, turns, and jaw-dropping moments in this epic saga of love, betrayal, and the unexpected!
