For like 7 seconds, i stared at her like i didn’t know what she was talking about or recognize what she was holding but the truth was, in my mind, i was searching for the perfect lie to blow.
“Who’s is it” she asked again
“I don’t know, isn’t it yours?” i said with a little stammer
“You and i know i don’t wear g-strings” she said calmly which surprised me but i knew the heat was coming.
“Yea its true, maybe i should ask James ” my brain was betraying me, it couldn’t come up with any lie.
“So James now wears g-strings, eh Chinecherem?” she said looking me in the eyes. She called me by my first name, in full, it then dawned on me that we were in for a long night.
“Naza, i don’t really know, please let’s not start this now eh sweetie” i said trying to get closer to her, she pushed me away, i fell on the bed.
“Chinecherem who left her pants in your wardrobe, i’m asking you, answer me o” she yelled at me, i just sat there looking at her. I was busted big time but i was careful not to tell any lie that i would have to contradict in the future.
“I don’t really know, i can’t even say how it got there”
“well suit yourself” she finally said and threw the pant at me, there was no mistake, there was Cynthia’s scent all over it. I sat on the bed with self Pity written all over me watching my baby as she wore her pants first, then her tights and finally consolidated it with a thick skinny jeans. She pulled my long sleeves shirt from the the hanger and put it on. It then dawned on me that there was nothing for me that night. She pulled the sheets from the bed, hung it around her neck and left the room. I was too weak to do or say anything.
James scampered into my room like someone being pursued by masquerades. I heard his door bang shut.
“Guy howfar naa, your girl just came into my room and spoiled my fun, imagine she and Anita jointly pursue me comot for my room, wetin happen naa? ” he asked as he jumped into my bed.
“Nothing happen guy” i said and sniffed, i felt like crying.
“How can you say nothing happened, and she left you to go and join her friend in my room, they wan do lezzy?
“Guy na Cynthia forget her pant for my wardrobe, i mean how could a girl forget to wear her pants at a guys house, just tell me if its not the devil that wants to punish me” i said in a low tone with frustration all over my voice.

“this is serious gan, what did you tell her? ”
“nothing, i didn’t even know how to deny it, i just confuse now now”
” Come make we go talk to her” he said getting up from the bed
“its useless, Chinaza won’t even look at your face this night”
“Don’t worry, lets try first” he pulled me up and we went to his door.
We knocked severally and there was no response.
“Naza please let me explain things to you” i begged, hoping she would open. James too was calling on both her and Anita.
Finally the door opened and Anita stood there. Behind her, i saw My boo lying on the bed with her face to the wall.
“Naza please” i pleaded, she didn’t even move talk more of looking or talking to me.
“She doesn’t want to see you” Anita said
“Anny at least let us in” James chipped in. Before he could finish, Chinaza got up from the bed, before i could thank God that she was coming out. She got to the door, pulled Anita out and shut it.
I looked at James who looked sorry for me but having known him for a long time, i also noticed he was trying very hard not to burst into laughter. Dejectedly i walked back to my room with james behind me. I fell on my bed and shut my eyes.
“And i was about to get it on with Anita before this your psycho girl came in” James said and landed besides me on the bed.
“When you finish reading your book of lamentations, you off light” I said.
“Next time, you should learn to tidy your room before bringing your girl over” James said and hissed.
“James eh, Chinaza and Cynthia’s pant has already caused me typhoid, don’t come and add malaria to it, it’s bad enough that i have to share a bed with you when I’m not gay and worse still when my babe dey next door, don’t come and add your bad mouth to it biko”
James laughed, got up and switched off the light. Soon he was asleep. For me, i stayed awake throughout the night and only managed to fall asleep by 5am in the morning. I know i was a player and a girl’s disappointment wasn’t supposed to get to me, but Chinaza wasn’t just any girl. She was my Queen.
