That wasn’t my plan at all, boriness not good at all. I took my bath after i saw Esther off then laid on my bed and reminisced how it went.
While s-cking me, many thought start through my mind. I’m not really dating this girl and i’m about to do what i will later regret. I’ve always to be a good guy especially to girls, respect them and all. I know did many bad things back then, but now is the time for a change. Either i get a nice and loving girlfriend or abstain from s€×.
Me: (Withdrawing) Errmmm…
Esther: What is it?
Me: Don’t u think what we’re doing is wrong?
Esther: As in?
Me: I can’t do this, i’m sorry.
Esther: Are u being serious? Like seriously??
Me: Yea, seriously. I mean we aint even dating yet and we’re already doing what we are doing and about to
Esther: So… whats all this about?
Me: See I know started this and i’m sorry, but lets stop this and just be friends if its ok with u
Esther: Hhmmm… Mr. Nice guy. Ok oo
Me: So… friends?
Me: Cool, once again, i’m sorry
Esther: Its ok
We dressed up then i saw her off
[email protected], i don’t want to do that again or should i say i don’t want to get bored anymore. Then i realized that
An idle man is the devils workshop Indeed it is.
I just don’t want to be a bad guy, its not even about the advise of my relatives but for myself. I don’t want to be popular for bad deeds at all, i hope and pray God help me with my dreams for greatness.
Walking on the streets to get what to eat, too tired to prepare anything then my phone rings
Titus: Guy hwfa i see ur missed call
Me: Yea, i call u that time sha
Titus: Wats up
Me: Nothing much, i just for enter ur side ne
Titus: No vex bro, my phone dey silent, i dey with my bae that time dey **** u understand how e be na
Me: Oya na, no p
Titus: Correct guy, leta na.
Bad guy straffed his bae, i almost did the same too but not my initial intention. I got to my suya spot and bought some, got myself yoghurt then headed home, my home or room whatever jare.
Sunday morning… i went to Church, the sermon and other activities was great. I met my parents, siblings and friends we exchanged pleasantries and all that. Time to go back to school, i went to dad to inform him, he said ok and some advise bla bla
he dipped his hand into his suit, brought out an envelope and gave it to me. I thanked him then went to my mum at their women fellowship meeting, told her i’d be on my way. She reached for her bag, brought out her purse and gave me some folded #500 notes (i collected it. Wait, what are u guys saying? that i shouldn’t collect again after getting from uncle and dad?? No way!!) 2Pac Shakur once said “I want my money in large amount, ‘coz every dollar counts” I love 2pac! Every naira counts jare.)
Woman: Is this Victor? (addressing my mum)
Mum: Yes, he is the one.
Woman: He’s grown so big already
Mum: You can say that again, i thank God
Woman: Are u done with secondary? (addressing me)
Me: *chai! our people like school eh* Yes ma. I’m now in the university
Woman: Wow! thats quick
Me: I thank God
Woman: What are u studying?
Me: Business Administration ma
Woman: Oh i see… are u sure u can do business with that your calm, gentle and shy attitude? or have u changed?
Me: (Chai! me that banged your daughter Dorothy) I’m still trying on overcoming it ma
Woman: Good. *looking into her bag* let me urmm… u know, take this…
Me: (Woah! again?!) Ma, u don’t have to bother ma (pretending jare)
Woman: Hey, u’re shy i know but u don’t have any other option. Now take it
Me: (In my mind: opening my hands when u have no choice. The way jerry does in the cartoon ‘Tom & Jerry’) Thank u ma. (Accepting the neat, flat #1000 notes like 7 of them).
Woman: Don’t mention, just study hard ok?
Me: Ok ma, how are Richy, Flora, Dorothy and mama ma?
Woman: They’re all fine
Me: My greetings ma (except Dorothy)
Woman: Alright, they will certainly hear especially Richy and Dorothy
Me: (Doro what??!) Ok ma, bye ma.
I also bade my mum and every one else bye then went home. I only go to the family church once in a month or two as i went to the school’s Church.
*On my bed counting all the money* See why i need to keep to myself? not showing of my bad side? am i even bad? doesnt seem so, i just felt so) Enough money, that was when i thought of having t.v, dvd, home theatre, play station 3 (video game) and fridge filled with many things such as: lots of yoghurts, meats, milk, eggs, etc. And i got them all.
Resting on my bed listening to some old school hip-hop after a stressful day at school. We wrote two tests (Ofcoz i wrote well), a group presentation (i was the group leader, while Mirabel and Promise was also the group leader of theirs). The scores of the previous test we wrote was announced. Tests are 20/20 while other Lecturers set theirs 30/30. I scored 30 in English, 20 in introduction to business and 22/30 in maths. Promise scored 28 in English, 19 in introduction to business and 27/30 in maths. While Mirabel scored 22 in English, 20 in introduction to business and 27/30 in maths. She didn’t do well in English, but not enough to be her limit.
Esther: Hi, how u doing?
Me: Fine but stressed out
Esther: School abi?
Me: Yea, how u?
Esther: I’m fine ooo…. as u don’t even call again
Me: No vex, many tinz just dey for me to do (vex o)
Esther: Ok oo, I feel bored, should i come over?
*knocks on the door*
Titus and two guys walked in after i told them to come in
Me: *On phone* I have visitors maybe some other time
Esther: Who are they?
Me: (Ah ah since when that one start) My friends, talk to u later.
Titus: Guy hwfa
Me: I dey o (shakes hand with them)
Titus: Off this your 2Pac put P.S for person jare (video game)
Me: Na una i buy ‘am for na
They have been coming to my place since i bought and told them about it. I just set it for them then took a walk out, not in the mood for video game that moment.
Walking on the street along the school road checking out the environment. Then i heard someone calling my name with an unfamiliar voice. I looked at the side where the voice was coming from, i saw two recognizable eve-like creatures waving at me from a car or their car.
My course mates, I went closer to them while they fold their arms and lean on their car.
Cynthia: Victor cant even hear his name again
Tola: Did she break your heart?
Me: She who? my heart fit break?
Me: I’m ok. How school today?
Tola: Guy, we thank God o… u try wella for the presentation.
Cynthia: Too bad i no dey una group
Me: Mirabel do well for una na
Cynthia: True but… hmmm not bad sha
Tola: U live around here?
Me: Yea, that block there *pointing*
Tola: OK we go check on u make u put us through on that Accounting abeg, u know the exam is near now
Cynthia: Yes o… we didn’t do well in the test.
Me: That won’t be a problem, lets just set a date and time then we’d meet in class
Tola: At school?
Cynthia: What about your room? Or your roommate won’t allow it??
Me: (Hhmmm… Oh Lord! save me from temptations. What are they thinking) I stay alone but my guys always come around. I think the class will be ok for learning.
Cynthia: That class sef, the noise and distractions emanating from those students would a hindrance. U should come to our place
Tola: Yea, come to our place
Tola: Don’t worry, we’d treat u well
Me: (Sh!t! No!!) Where is this your place?
Cynthia: At VIPI 2C iv
Woah! This girls must be very rich to be living there.
VIPI – VIP INN
2C – SECOND CLASS WING
iv – ROOM NUMBER
Me: Thats where u guys live?
Me: Oh i see, aright then
Tola: So… when will be convenient for u?
Me: Anytime is fine by me
Tola: Ok then… u should give us your number so we’d contact u
Me: Alright, 070********
Cynthia: See u around then
They both gave me a hug with that they zoomed off leaving me with my thoughts.
I got to my room, the guys are gone already leaving my room tattered like a robbed place. I no blame them sha, na me want friends. Seriously this kind of thing piss me off, i can never do anyhow in someone’s room, Some people are just stupid.
I re-arranged my room and discovered some items are missing. Two pairs of shoes, cap, my expensive wrist watch and my reserved yoghurts. Chai! See why i don’t make male friends, this friendship must stop after i retrieve my stuffs,,, i will only dash them the yoghurts with red eye sha.
The next day in school, i went early and read my books as usual preparing for any unplanned test as i hate to fail.
No test was conducted just normal lectures. Other test scores was announced and i did perfectly well especially in accounting that caught the attention of everyone towards me because its very difficult for them mostly the quantitative part. The accounting lecturer walked in and announced that he’s done with the lectures for the semester and…he shared the test scripts one after the other but i didn’t hear my name. He shared all its only one paper remaining in his hand. I was expecting him to ask *If u didn’t hear your name put up your hand* but he didn’t which got me scared… of course i wrote his test what is happening?
Lecturer: I’m very disappointed with your performance in the test. U only did well on the theory part but the quantitative side…. very bad.
Lecturer: Its only one person that saved this class and i urge you all to find a way to understand it before the commencement of the exam. Because if u fail, i will fail u that’s the truth. I wont help one person and leave the others, if i should help i will help all of you.
Students: Thank you sir
Lecturer: Where is Victor?
Lecturer: Come out here.
Me: (walking to his side with my heart beating with questions -what did i do? -why is he calling me out? Chai! In front of everyone? Lord Jesus help me o as U always have)
Lecturer: Class this gentleman here scored 30/30 which i think nobody else scored above 20.
Wow! I was like not even Mirabel? Awesome! That moment eh… my head was floating on my shoulders, my heart was beating faster than the best drummer, my teeth was shaking like i’m deep inside the pacific ocean, my legs became soo weak like i was going to collapse, my eyes was facing everyone but i wasn’t seeing anyone.
The Lecturer advises me in front of the class to keep it up, that i should not slack this and that bla bla bla…
After that he gave me my script and ask me to go back to my seat, he also advises the class using me as a point to encourage them. He wished us best of luck, bade us goodbye then left.
I noticed some girls eyeing me, some guys hailed me and shake hands with me. One girl walked to me open my hands and buried something in it, she didnt say anything, she just smiled and left. I opened my hands immediately and saw a small piece of paper, i unfold it and saw a number with an inscription ‘Call Me’. All this while i remained on my seat I couldn’t stand up that moment because of fear of collapsing. I have been waiting for Promise to come and rescue me by walking me out of here but she was nowhere to be found, she followed the accounting lecturer out, why? I dunno. I don’t know what moved my head as it turned 190° and guess whose eyes i jammed? You guessed right maybe not but it was Mirabel. She was frowning at me in an unfriendly manner,,, next thing i saw was her standing up hissing then went out. That made me feel bad, i never wanted anyone to hate me or dislike me in any manner,,, i now have the urge to make peace with her so my mind would be at peace. But, how do i do that??
Me: Where did u go and what kept u so long?
Promise: Ah ah…As your girlfriend or what? see me o…
Me: So we’d leave here together na
Promise: Alright lets go, shall we?
Me: So… when would u prepare the meal u said u would prepare for me?
Promise: Don’t worry, soon
Me: Still looking forward to that
Me: U will prepare it before me, so maybe i’d learn. That means u are coming to my place.
Promise: No no no
Promise: I dunno but no
Promise: I will just prepare it and bring it to you
Me: No no no
Promise: What? why?
Me: Prepare it at my place or no deal
Promise: Ok sir. I just hope say no girl go warn or harm me
Me: Which girl? i no know for you o
We got to a place where we took our different rout.
Now walking alone to my house abi room sef…
Caller: Hi handsome how u doing?
Me: I’m doing well,,,,,sorry who is this?
Caller: Its Lola
Me: Oh Lola, i didn’t know its u
Lola: Yea, u don’t have my number
Lola: So… do you mind coming over?
Me: Ok, i’m on my way to my lodge now, i will be there in an hour or two is that OK?
Me: Alright then
Lola: We will be expecting u handsome byee…
Chai! this one that she’s adding handsome, hope i’m save.
Getting closer to my lodge i saw a familiar car parked in front of my lodge… getting more closer i saw two familiar people leaning and discussing around the car. I closed up the distance to my room and found someone standing in front of my room… next thing i heard was “Hi Victor” i was damned surprised.
Now guess who??
I closed up the distance to my room and found someone standing in front of my room… next thing i heard was…
Mirabel: Hi Victor
Me: (Like seriously? am i dreaming or what?? Mirabel??? How did she even locate my room???) Hi Mirabel
Mirabel: Hhmmm… he even knows my name
Me: Yes i do, what are u doing here?
Mirabel: Just to talk
Me: About what?
Mirabel: Why do u hate me?
Me: *Laughing in my mind I don’t know what you’re talking about
Mirabel: Why don’t u talk to me then? u make friends with people, those girls and all, while u snub me whenever u walk pass. And you’re also trying to make me look like a fool in the class by answering questions with more details whenever i attempted… tell me why you’re being like this? Yet people say you’re cool.
Me: (Chai! Where do i start from?) Listen, i have no negative intention towards u at all… everything u just said is coincidental i must say. I mean, i don’t even know u so… why would i be mean towards u? Its crazy, it doesn’t make any sense.
Mirabel: What about the snubbing?
Me: Well, that… i dunno, just that i don’t want to be embarrassed or even feel embarrassed at all.
Mirabel: What do u mean by that?
Me: U know i’m talking about class, sophistication. I saw how u treat those guys,,, made me think you’re arrogant.
Mirabel: Can we go to somewhere and talk?
Me: U mean now?
Me: I just got here, i need to rest little
Mirabel: May i come in?
Me: (What?! Sh!t No!) See, uhmm… how about we talk some other time? I really need to rest now
Mirabel: Very well then…. its ok, and ermm… sorry for coming unannounced.
*My phone rings*
Me: Its okay…
Mirabel: Alright, see u around
Me: U too
She left with her bodyguards while i answer my call
Lola: Hi handsome, are u on your way already?
Me: About to, let me just take care one or two things first
Lola: Ok, make sure u don’t eat anything before coming ok?
Me: What? Why??
Lola: Hey, easy there food lover, just don’t eat before coming over ok?
Me: Hhmmm… ok
Lola: Good boyy… take care of your whatever and come here ASAP
See? This is exactly what i was trying to avoid in the first place… Promise!! See what your advise got me into?! I don’t want to go back to who i was with the girls… now its happening again. If person no fine, dem go say him no fine. If person know book na girlogical and s€×addiction problem, if him no know na academical and illiteracy problem. Chai!
I open my door, got in, off my clothes and removed everything in my pockets then saw the number that girl gave to me earlier. I don’t even know if i should call her or not, i just kept it one side hoping i would forget it.
So… that girl said i should not eat abi? I hope they have a better food for me ‘coz i don’t joke with my food at all. I took my bath and got myself ready to go there… the shoes i was supposed to wear, those yeye friends of mine took it already. I just dressed casually, took my accounting note and head out thats after i took a bottle of yoghurt with me, sipping it along the way.
The bike guy dropped me in front of the gate, i paid him he zoomed off while i called Lola to inform her. She came out in less than a minute putting on a mini-shirt with a tight transparent short and gave me a tight hug, then ushered me in. Wow! Look at the environment filled with exotic cars, so beautiful with flowers all over, they got swimming pool, awesome! Thats something that’d motivate me to come next time ‘coz i love swimming. Walking with her to their lodge with her holding my arms like a girl welcoming her fiance to her parent’s house.
Getting closer, i sighted the 1st class wing, i didn’t get the full visuals though, but it was splendid.
We got into their apartment, i was like ‘students living in a family house?’
Cynthia rushed to give me a hug wearing a b-ra-like shirt with ah bum short chai! What is their plan?!
I sat down, as in they put me in their middle bombarding me gists, u know erm… this eh… that this… that that bla bla bla…
ME: Ok ermm… lets get to business
Lola: Come on… u just got here
Cynthia: And its your first time of coming here. So… we have to treat you well don’t u think?
To My People, I Extend The Question To Y’all, What Do U Think??.
They told me to relax, which i tried to but i wasn’t that comfortable. They both went inside.
Caller: Hi Victor, its Mirabel.
Me: Hi Mirabel, how u doing?
Mirabel: I’m Okay… I guess you’ve rested alot. Uhmm… are u at your place? So i could come over so we’d talk or we can we go somewhere else.
Me: Uhmmm… I’m not around. I’m actually at a friend’s place.
Mirabel: Would you be there for long?
Me: Yes i guess. We’re busy with some stuffs (sh!t, i used we)
Me: Yea, my friends
Cynthia and Lola walks in*
Mirabel: See u tomorrow
Me: U too
They came in with food and orange drink. Wow! that got me excited and felt relaxed ‘coz i was really hungry. Instead of using the dinning, they chose to use the floor then Lola dragged me to the floor. Cynthia opened it, wow! Fried rice and lots of chicken.
Lola: This food is specially made for u, so eat alot
Me: The food looks good, it will surely be delicious, can’t wait to devour this ‘coz i’m f√cking hungry.
Oopss! I didn’t know when the word ‘f√cking’ came out from my mouth sh!t.
Lola: Ughnnn…. see who’s talking dirty
Cynthia: Don’t worry, we won’t hold it against u. It actually sounds s€×y.
(Can I please eat this food? Like now??)
Cynthia: C’mon lets eat
Lola served the meal, putting a small quantity of food in each plate. I was like ‘I no be ajebo like una o wey no dey eat much, put food for me jare’.
We started eating… before i take a piece into my mouth, they’d both feed me with theirs then give me a glass of juice to sip. It got me uncomfortable ‘coz i wasn’t enjoying eating it one by one, its so lame. Let them leave me to eat this food in peace jare hia! Even husband and wife with fresh flowing love wouldn’t have time for this nonsense.
At last, they became full after eating what a 3 years old kpako pikin would eat ×3, their fada!
I kept eating, finished two plates, requested for more, eat again, drank more juice i wish they brought yoghurt, i ate the meat eh… like it was my first time of eating it, but seriously i love food, especially the delicious ones and i’m never shy when it comes to food. I almost finished all the food they brought before i got full.
Cynthia: Wow! Victor!! U want to kill yourself?!
Lola: U eat like this?
Me: You have no idea… *Using tooth pick*
Cynthia: Woah… is this how u really eat?
Me: Not really sha, i do eat normally. But, if a food like this one is brought to me? I uncontrollably lost control.
Me: Thanks for the meal, u guys are great cook.
Lola: U can get more of it whenever u want (*With a s€×y look and voice*)
Me: That’d be great!
Cynthia went inside while Lola came closer to me. She sat right beside me with her leg crossed rubbing my back, she then proceeded to offing the buttons of my shirt, she began rubbing the hairs of my chest down to my tommy.
Lola: So… did u really enjoy the food? *In a sed-ctive voice*
Me: Yea sure, absolutely
Lola: Since u ate much, i guess its given u some strength *sed-ctively*
Me: Thats right (coded already)
She began using her crossed leg to rub my leg smiling sed-ctively. I didn’t say or do anything, i was just there looking around, my coolness that moment made me look like a complete amateur towards reacting to a lady. The way she also react towards me, made to think that she’s thinking that i’m an amateur, like me being the gentle-intelligent guy type. She kept doing that until Cynthia came back holding a tray containing a fine bottle and three wine glass.
Cynthia: Guys,,, who care for some champagne?
They both stared at me with a written look on their face like “What about you?”
Me: *Silent, just looking at them with a coy smile*
Lola: Bring it girl!
Cynthia brought it and *kpoop* she opened it,,, i watch them scre-ming in excitement. She handed me a glass and pour some for me, for Lola and for herself. I have never seen a champagne before more to talk of tasting it. I took a sip, it didn’t taste bad then i drank it all. Lola added another one for me when i didn’t ask for more. I finished it within a short time.
Cynthia: Huunnnn…. he’s enjoying it. Lola give him more.
What?! More?!! When they’re still on their first glass?!!!….What are they thinking? I remember when i was eating, they questioned me if was going to kill myself ‘coz i’ve had alot. Now, they want me to drink alot? To get me drunk?? Way!!
Lola: *About to refill my glass*
Me: No no no its Ok, i’m Ok
Lola: Common… don’t be shy, drink its ok
Me? Don’t be shy??
Me: No seriously i’m Ok
Cynthia: Just a little more dear
Me: Nop, not anymore
Lola: Oh poor baaby… (she came seating on my laps, she begin to car-ss my hair while rubbing her a$$ on the territory of vame)
Cynthia stood up, switch on the music, she came close to me, doing some s€×y moves like a stripper while Lola now felt more comfortable in twisting her a$$ up and down, left and right on vame’s territory and i think its about to get angry ‘coz of the invasion of its territory.
Lola: *Whispering to my ears in a sed-ctive tone* Do u like what you’re seeing?
I didn’t say anything, i have to leave now or restart what i had ended.
Cynthia came over to me, she slowly unbuckled my belt trying to off my trousers or something. Its either i leave now or never…
I was about to get them off me in a gentle manner before i heard the ringtone of my phone. It was Promise, she brought me into this, now she’s my heroine.
Lola: Don’t pick it up (you say?)
Me: I have to.
I picked up
Promise: How u doing?
Me: What?! When??! How???!
Promise: What are u saying, are u ok?
Me: Ok! I will be on my way right away.
I hanged up the call.
Me: Guys, i have to go now
Lola: Why? What happened??
Me: My father collapse and he’s been taking to the hospital. I have to go there now *arranging myself*
Cynthia: Hope its not that serious?
Me: I dunno yet
Cynthia: Ok, just take it easy
Lola: Maybe we should drop u up (what?!)
Me: U guys would need to dress up and i don’t have the time to wait
Lola: Alright, hoping to see u tomorrow
Me: Ok (keep hoping) Bye!
I rushed out immediately running towards the gate before i heard my name with a familiar voice, and it was from the first class wing. I turned around to see someone, she was surprised while i was shocked….
