Please do not share without talking to me personally and asking for permission, thank you for reading this story…
Later at night, I called her to get busy with love. She picked it up her call.
I can’t deny, the first time I heard her voice, I was totally carried away by her soft voice –Most guys like it very much___advice to all girls, if you want to catch a guy, then do the soft voice thing–.
Me: “Hello”, I said.
Faith: ” [Soft voice] hy”, she said.
Me: “omo, see soft voice”, I said in my head.
Me: “How are you?”, I asked.
Faith: “I’m feeling well”, she replied.
Me: “My name is victor”, I said.
Faith: “oh victor, you’re the shy guy that can’t talk to me, so you sent your friend to do it for you”, she said teasing me.
Me: “Chia, this girl don wash me for ground like rug”, I said in my head.
Me: “No I am not shy, I didn’t get the chance to meet you one on one”, I said defending myself.
Faith: “I see”, she said.
Me: “[Game on] So what if you give me the chance to see you, like tomorrow”, I said.
Faith: “Mmm, you’re a total stranger, how am I sure that you won’t kill me or something”, she said teasingly.
Me: “Omo this girl can tease ehn”, I said in my head.
Me: “No__I can’t kill someone as beautiful as you. The first day I saw you, I was carried away by your blossom beauty”, I said.
Me: “Da*n!, why did I say that, I hope she won’t be angry”, I said in my head.
Faith: “Wait you saw me? then how come I haven’t seen you?”, she threw questions at me.
Me: “Huh?, Didn’t she hear what I said, abi she choose not to answer me”, I said in my head.
Me: “Well, let me just say it was meant to be so, but you could see me if you wanna by tomorrow”, I said.
Faith: “I’m not sure whether I would be around tomorrow, anyway by what time”, she said.
Me: “[Happy] Oh yea, I don win this award”, I said in my head.
Me: “By 4pm at sweet sensation”, I said.
Faith: “4pm won’t be ok, 6pm would be better. By the way, is it a date or a get to know each other kind of a thing?”, she asked.
Me: “Mmm, I guess a get to know each other kind of a thing”, I answered.
Faith: “If that’s so, then we could walky and talky, no need to go there. Besides I don’t know where it is”, she said.
Me: “Menn this babe no be anyhow babe sha, if na all those hungry babe wey be say dey like chop chop to much, them for allow me spend my cash”, I said in my head.
Me: “[laughs] Ok no problem, but why did you say ‘walky and talky’?”, i asked.
Faith: “Don’t mind me, I just felt like saying it”, she said.
Me: “Ok, so by 6pm tomorrow, but wait will I come to your place?”, I asked.
Faith: “Yes of course you will, I don’t know your house, are you afraid of my dad?”, she asked.
Me: “Yes I am afraid, he might do things to me”, I said jokingly.
Faith: “Stop saying that, just come by 6pm tomorrow, ok?”, she said.
Me: “Ok I will”, I said.
Faith: “Ok then, bye”, she said.
Me: “Bye”, i said as the call dropped.
And that was how my love for her grew up, it made me feel like a real man, it made me proud.
Everything changed when i was deceived by a girl call tobechi. I really need to stop blaming people for my mistakes because tobechi was on her own and I went for her, foolish me.
I never knew tobechi was faith’s best friend.
It all happened on a sunday evening, I was walking down to a bar, to go chill –Faith was not Around, she went back to school like a month ago–. When I was about entering the bar, I bumped into a tall good-looking slim-fair in complexion girl, with a butter lips looking pinkish in nature.
She smelled so nice, which made words fly out of my mouth.
“Oh sorry”, she said going out the bar.
I just stood and watch her until she was out of sight. I got back to my senses and went into the bar to have a nice time.
The next day in the evening, I went to a cybercafé to photocopy some documents. The guy that owned the cybercafé, was one of my church member.
“My bros good morning”, I said rising my hands up high.
“Ahh my landlord I dey o”, he replied.
“Oga me shey make I bring my hands down”, I said still rising my hands up high.
“Mr man no bring am down ooo”, he said with a teasing smile.
“Ah oga you wan punish me for here?”, I asked smiling.
“Oya oya bring am down before you go start to cry like pikin”, he said standing up.
“Ah thank you sir, abeg bros I wan__”, I said but couldn’t finish my statement because of what I saw.
My words became short, as I looked to my left hand side, to see the same girl I saw last night at the bar. I pulled him to a corner and lowered my voice to ask him about her.
“Bros no vex, but who is that girl over there”, I said pointing at her.
“Oh she’s one of my student”, he replied.
“I see”, I said with a smile.
“So what’s her name?”, I asked gazing at her.
“Her name is tobechi and she is learning excel just for a month”, he replied.
“What a lovely name for a beautiful girl”, I said.
“hmm, guy so you like her?”, He said with a straight face.
“Me no like her o, I just wanted to know because her face looks familiar”, I replied him doing the fake-looks of a liar.
“Guy, I dey watch you o”, he said walking back inside.”
“You sef ehn your mind no clean at all”, I said as I followed him behind.
The both of us came in, then i gave the documents to him, so that he could help me do the photocopy. My eyes were always looking at her, but she didn’t look up or side.
She was totally focused on her computer –I guess she was designing something–. Although i was done with the photocopy and was about to leave, my eyes wasn’t done with its own job of steering.
As I got home my mind started to think.
Evil thoughts: “Menn, you have to get this girl o”, it said.
Good thoughts: “Guy don’t do this thing you want to do, remember that you’re already in a good relationship with faith and you love her very much”, it said.
Evil thoughts: “Don’t mind that one, listen to me. She won’t find out at all, after all she won’t be back until 2months, so there is more than enough time to wiggle around”, it said
Evil thoughts: “She might even have a school boyfriend and you here dulling myself”, it said.
Me: “You are right, let me enjoy now that I have the chance, this life is YOLO (you only live once)”, I said to myself out loud.
If I had known, I would have listened to the good thoughts, but no I didn’t. I had to listed to the bad thoughts.
One week later, I started dating tobechi. she was fun, but not as faith was.
I and tobechi relationship grew, as I and faith’s relationship sunk each passing time, but I still loved her. I ignored faith’s calls and messages.
My friends saw what was going on and they warned me about it, i rebelled against them and I didn’t even listen to my own self.
Faith came back from school, the same day tobechi travelled to her home town, to see her grand mother. Faith sent me a text message, but I ignored it.
She complained to friend two about my behaviour, then he called me to come over to his house.
“Victor, what did faith do to you? why are you treating her this way?”, he asked, looking at me with an angry face.
“Guy leave that matter make e go”, I said throwing my face to the right.
“Leave what!?”, He shouted.
“She even cried and said I should beg you”, he said.
“Guy I don tell you say make you leave the matter, abi shey you want make i lie down beg me?”, I asked with my eyes wide open.
“Guy please, if the babe don do you any thing just forgive am na”, he said.
“Ok I don hear, I don hear”, I said.
My bad behaviour did not change, even though friend one told me not to leave her.
There came a day, Faith came to my house to look for me, but when I saw her coming, I went to hide. She didn’t get the chance to meet me that day.
Tobechi called me one morning like that.
My phone: [Ringing] Caller ‘Toby love’
Me: “Hello baby”, i said immediately I picked the call.
Tobechi: “Hy, my darling baby”, she replied.
Me: “I’ve missed you so so much”, I said with a baby’s voice.
Tobechi: “I know cute pie and I miss you more”, she said.
Me: “That’s so sweet of you, how are you?”, I asked.
Tobechi: “Baby I am fine, what about you, I hope all those girls there ain’t disturbing you?”, she replied then asked.
Me: “I am well ok, they can’t disturb me na, when I have a girl like you”, I said teasingly.
Tobechi: “Mmm I see, now you are the one teasing me”, she said.
Me: “I am not, I am telling you the fair side of nature”, I said.
Tobechi: “Ah you and your composed words”, she said.
Me: “Well you always bring out the right words from my heart”, I said with a smile on my face.
Tobechi: “[Laughs] You have started again, don’t make me blush over the phone o”, she said laughing.
Me: “I will try not to, but the feelings that are caved inside my heart might expose if I don’t let it out”, I said.
Tobechi: “Ok, like seriously I’m really really blushing”, she said.
Me: “[Laughs] Naughty girl”, I said laughing.
Tobechi: “[Laughs] Dear I will take night bus today and I’ll arrive tomorrow morning with a surprise”, she said.
Me: “Really!?, that’s really cool, what’s the surprise? my blue baby”, I asked teasingly.
Tobechi: “Hy don’t try to act romantic, for me to tell you the surprise. I won’t do that, just wait until tomorrow morning”, she said.
Me: “Okay I will wait, but night trips are not good, I don’t like that idea”, I said sounding unhappy.
Tobechi: “Please dear just manage and like it or don’t you miss me?”, she asked.
Me: “Yes I do dear, but___”, i said but couldn’t finish my words because she cut it short.
Tobechi: “No buts, I will be fine okay?”, she asked.
Me: “Ok sweet orange”, I replied.
Tobechi: “Bye baby, I want to do some thing for my grand ma”, she said.
Me: “Ok sweet cheeks, greet your grand mum for me”, I said.
Tobechi: “Sure I will, kisses”, she said kissing her phone.
Me: “Kisses”, i said as i pushed my lips to my phone’s mouthpiece.
Tobechi: “Bye”, she said as she dropped the call.
After the call, my mind was on the surprise she told me about, all throughout that day.
The following morning, my phone rang and the caller was ‘Faith’. I looked at it as it rang and rang, but I didn’t pick it.
Few minutes later, another call came in.
My phone: “[Ringing] Caller ‘Toby love’.
I picked it quickly, immediately I saw the caller.
Me: “Hello teddy bear”, I said romantically.
Tobechi: “Hy mr romance, how’re you?”, she asked.
Me: “I’m ok, have you arrived?, I asked her.
Tobechi: “Yes I have”, she said.
Me: “Ok I’m coming now to pick you”, I said.
Tobechi: “Ok I am waiting”, she said then ended the call.
I quickly wore my clothes and went to pick her.
When I got there, I saw her putting on blue jeans, black top and a pair of vans shoe.
“Wow she looks take away”, I said to myself.
I walked up to her and we both hug –won’t lie, the hug shook me very well–.
She said “Remember I said, I’ve a surprise for you”.
Me: “Yes I remember, you know I like surprises very much”, I said with an enthusiastic tone.
Tobechi: “Well close your eyes first and face the wall”, she requested.
Me: “Ok boo boo”, I accepted, as I did what she asked of me.
My eyes were still close and my face facing the wall, then she said “baby turn”.
Before I could turn completely, she said “Victor meet my best friend faith, she is the girl I’ve always told you about”.
When I fully turned and saw the figure that stood in front of me, I was totally shocked and speechless.
Faith: “So you’re dating my best friend victor!, this is unbelievable. [Crying] That’s why you have been ignoring me all this time you bastard!!”, she said crying and shouting.
An atomic-slap-bomb landed on my right cheek, given to me by faith then she ran away.
Tobechi: “So victor, you were dating my best friend all this while? So you used us? da*n!, I hate you!”, She said angrily.
Another ancient slap landed on my right cheek, given to me by tobechi.
I could swear that, the two slaps made me daffy. I couldn’t hear any sound for 20mins.
And that was the beginning of sorrow for me, that was how my life became impossible, that was how I brought about my own pain…… To be continue.
