Today is the last Saturday of the month (environmental day). I went with my brother for environmental stuffs. We were busy when one of our neighbour(Ruka) came to borrow our rake.
Ruka: Femi please if you guys are through with the rake. Do borrow us.
Me: no problem.
If you are looking for Lepa… you have found Ruka. In short Ruka=Lepa. But what I like about her is that, she can speak English, Igbo and Yoruba very fluently and knows much about every aspect of life… sports, politics, Boko-Haram, education, movies, music …. just name it. Ruka is just the bomb.
She dress very nice too and Funmilayo once told me that she is into modelling.
Bros Segun: o boy.. Ruka don dey make sense oooo
Me: badoo… Wetin make sense for this one. Wetin you wan enjoy for this bone body.
Bros Segun: you no go understand… Na dis wan dem dey call lepa wey make sense. All styles na default settings. You no need to dey force am.
Me: Badoo… if dem dey look for devil, na im be this (pointing at him). As you talk am, I fit enter the settings too o
Bros Segun: Na sure settings be this ooo, but it will take you time to hit the jackpot.
Me: this one… she go happy say I con toast am…. Me… under 2weeks I don sample am (forming Rambo again).
Bros Segun: Na lie you no fit do am under 2weeks. If you do am, I go respect you no be small. The girl wey me “Badoo” don toast like 3times wey no gree na Im you wan sample under 2weeks.
Me: (bros don kolo oo) I go do am but we will make a bet that all the money I spend to lure her will be refunded by you.
Bros Segun: deal but if you lose then you will watch my cloths for 2 weeks.
Me: (no be me dey watch am before)… deal Bros.
We finished the environmental exercise around 9am. That was when I remembered to call Motunrayo. Dialled her number .
Me: hello… Sowie for not making up with my promise. Today is environmental and I nearly forgot sef
Motunrayo: Okay oooo.. at least you called. Thanks
Me: but don’t worry, all the other hours won’t miss.
Motunrayo: Okay sir.. how was your night?
Me: it was fine… urs?
Motunrayo: same… we will talk later… I’m cooking now.
Me: Okay oooo… later then (she ends the call).
I rushed to the bathroom for my morning drills. Went to the kitchen to see what my lovely sister is cooking.
Me: Funmilayo baby…. if not that you are my blood sister. I would have kidnapped and married you.
Funmilayo: hmnnnnn…. food is not ready.
Me: I’m not hungry jo… I’m just admiring my only sister. The guy wey go marry you must try well well oooo.
Funmilayo: Brother mi…. stop it now (Smiling). what do you want?
Me: That’s why I said I want to kidnap you and then marry you. You understand me die.
Funmilayo: (giggles) what do you want?
I explained my affection for Ruka’s but I didn’t tell her about the bet.
Me: just help me with her number. I know you have her number.
Funmilayo: is that all you want?
Me: Yes…. that would be all for now. or do you have any other means of hooking us together.
Funmilayo: hmnnnnn…. I will think of something but don’t call her yet ooo
Me: (gives me her number) okay ma…
We were still discussing when Mummy entered the kitchen… see you later Funmilayo (I pecked her on the chin) and I pecked my mummy too and greeted her Good Morning Ma.
I ate my breakfast and I managed to call Motunrayo 10am and 11am on the dot. I was about going out to see Emeka when Kikelomo and Bidemi entered my room. I was shocked and silently praying that they ved not discovered my escapades with them.
Me: hi ladies
Bidemi: we came to apologise about what happened yesterday. Because if you had not stayed back with Kikelomo yesterday., you would have ironed your Dad’s clothes.
Me: I’m alright now.. thank you. Nobody forces me to do what I don’t want to do. My staying back was solely my decision.
Kikelomo: Okay oooo…. we are going to the cinemas and we want you to accompany us if you are chanced.
Me: (see wahala ooo) sure… which cinema is that? (I hope this is not a set up ooo)
Bidemi: constatin cinemas
Me: (next street) good… am I okay like this? (turning around)
Kikelomo: na cinema we dey go na not burial ceremony.
We all laughed and Bidemi excused herself to go to the ladies.
Immediately she left, Kikelomo jumped off her seat and started kissing me. I tried restraining her but she just kept going on (that was when I knew that this girls wan set me up). We continued kissing until we heard the sound of flushing from the restroom. Bidemi came out and we all set for the cinema.
We got to the Cinema around 12 : 45pm and the movie we intend watching starts 1pm. So we took our time to snap picture with different backgrounds.
My mind just Flashed that I have failed to call Motunrayo now for 2 consecutive hours. But I still cherish my phone, so I had to ignore her at least for now.
Bidemi liked some of her pictures on my phone and she insisted on sharing some of them on my Facebook.
Kikelomo and I excused her to get some pop corn. We didnt spend up to 5mins and we returned to where Bidemi was. She was in tears. That was when I remembered that I didnt delete Kikelomo’s messages.
Bidemi: Who’s Motunrayo?
Me: she’s a friend. Is that why you are crying?
Bidemi: so what is going on between both of you (pointing towards Kikelomo and I)
Me: what do you mean?
Bidemi: dont play dumb with me… you know what “I hate both you” (crying and running away).
Now faced with Kikelomo…. her eyes was filled with so much rage.
Kikelomo: didnt I asked you to delete those messages?
Me: I forgot to… I’m sorry
Kikelomo: it’s too late for that… so you collected Motunrayo’s number at the party without even informing me.
Me: em… em… em….
Kikelomo: you are just a lying bastard… (she walks away from me)
I called out her name and stretch out my right hand to hold her back. The next thing I heard was ‘gbosa’ for my face. My phone and popcorn all scattered on the floor while she zooms off.
People were just staring at me and I felt like disappearing from that place. I couldn’t move for 5mins.
A guy came up to me and put his arm around my neck. He was heaven sent. He acted as if we came there together. He just dragged me out of the cinema and I explained everything to him with tears in my eyes. I don’t know this guy but I felt comfortable with him.
He told me that his name is Tunde and we exchanged our contact.
Me: thank you very much oooo. I have never been disgraced publicly like this before
Tunde: I said you should not worry. By the time I hook you up with bigger girls. They will come begging you back.
Me: just because of text message.
Tunde: you are still new in the game and there are rules to be followed.
Rule 1: never leave a love text message on your phone
Rule 2: never leave a love text message on your phone
Me: Okay…. I will love to know more about your rules.
Tunde: no problem…. I like you and you are too cute to be treated like that… I will fix you up. Got to go. I will holla you later.
Me: Okay friend.
We parted and I took a bike to my house, even though it’s not too far from my house. I don’t want any okada man to insult me today again.
Got home around 2:30pm. That was when I knew what befell me. So no more kisses everyday again. Motunrayo’s house is far that’s even if Kikelomo will allow the relationship to grow: now that she’s found out.
I got to get a new area girl so that I won’t wallow too much in my present state. My mind Flashed to Ruka. She’s not that bad but what if Kikelomo&Bidemi got to know about who I’m dating: I think they will be very happy that the girl is not up to their standard. But who cares? Besides I had a bet that expires in 2weeks time. This week no be am at all.
I went out of my room to search for my lovely sister!
Me: Iyawo mi
Funmilayo: Oko mi (Smiling)
Me: you no wan allow me marry another wife after you abi?
Funmilayo: (now laughing) I’m on it bros. Just relax.
Me: Okay oooo… but I promise that nobody go replace your spot in my heart ooo (moves closer and pecked her)
Funmilayo: (Smiling) me sef no go gree
We both laughed and I went back into my room. I called Motunrayo without letting her know what was wrong with me and I apologised for breaking my promise.
I didnt want to call the girls of the Adeboye’s but I still feel bad about the whole issue. I know that none of them would pick my call. Which I don’t want them to because I don’t have any explanation to give them.
I dialled Bidemi’s number for 15 times (hoping that she won’t pick) then dialled Kikelomo’s number 5 times. They didn’t pick as I expected but I just prayed that they won’t escalate the issue than how it already is.
I was feeling lonely and depressed. I wanted to call Ruka but my sister warned me not to. I’m still thinking who to call when Tunde’s number rang on my phone. I picked the call.
Me: hello boss
Tunde: hello ore, how are you feeling now?
Me: all thanks to you… I’m much better now
Tunde: hoped you didnt call those girls?
Me: I did but they dint pick up
Tunde: Okay… you suppose not to call them.. make them dey expect your call and explanation. don’t call them again ooo
Me: Okay boss
Tunde: can you come to Blue Top hotel at Johnson street around 6pm today.
Me: (hotel… 6pm… daddy)… I am not too sure but if I can make it. I will let you know before then.
Tunde: Nothing do you…. later friend
My Dad usually comes home late on Saturdays (club things). But my mum… where will I tell them that I went to?
Went to my sister and confided in her (dint tell her where I was going). Told her that I will be coming back anytime from 8pm and if mummy asked of me.. that she should tell her that I went to collect GCE past question from someone that I just left now. She said no problem.
I went to play with my mum in the living room then sneaked into my room around 5:30pm. I made a call to Tunde that I will be coming but I won’t stay that long.
Exactly 6pm, I took a bike to the hotel at Johnson street. I called Tunde that I’m at the gate. After waiting for like 5mins, he came and we entered inside.
He was with his friends in the VIP lounge (2girls… 3guys). He introduced the ladies… this is Ronke and this is Linda. They greeted me warmly by hugging me. With my assessment, those ladies will be over 40years old. Is this the kind of bigger girls that Tunde wants to link me to. I was still thinking when tunde ordered for 2 bottles of small stout and a plate of pepper soup (Stout ke) for me. I rushed the drinks with the hope that I would leave early but tunde ordered for more drinks which I rejected. I don’t drink like that besides I don’t want you to feel bad that was why I forced myself to drink the ones you gave me.
He smiled and said “you be correct guy”. It is getting late: 7:30pm now. I told him that I had to leave because of my Dad.
Tunde: no oooo. I have a gift for you
Me: what gift is that?
Tunde: guys let’s go inside…
We all moved inside the hotel. Tunde gave me room key 204 and said your package is inside there. I knew that the package is a girl. I was feeling tipsy but I was still praying that it won’t be old mama like Ronke and Linda ooo.
I managed to get to the door and I got the shock of my life when I opened it. What I saw really surprised me.
