Deborah stood with me and we became the most envied best friends on Campus, am everywhere Deborah is. We went to library together, lectures and then return home together. We understood each other so well even in sweeping and mopping the room, I go tell you straight. I no like dirty, and Deborah is clean. We were two friends made in heaven and brought down to Earth, I provided financially for both of us, ’cause my Monthly allowee from my dad will make you think like am working somewhere when you see the alerts.
I bought text books and everything for two, I had too many clothes to even think of buying one myself. All thanks to Anderson, I no wan just pick the dude calls, am just too ashamed.
There was this guy disturbing Deborah on Campus for relationship but Deborah refused to accept him, I come dey wonder why? He begged me to plead with Deborah that he has good intentions towards her.
Me: babe, give the guy chance na. The guy dey hawk your matter for campus.
Deborah: which guy sef you dey talk about?
Me: Jay na, that fine bobo wey dey for medicine.
Deborah: you funny oh, that guy fit hawk my matter?
Me: the guy love you.
Deborah: I no need children love, I dey twenty seven years now. Wetin I need na marriage and money to fund my education, my mother and younger ones look up to me.
Me: you mean say na you dey train yourself for university?
Deborah: yes, no be everybody dey lucky like you. I no get time for kabukabu love, abeg.
I was shocked when Deborah revealed such to me, she always go to work immediately we returned from lectures, I was thinking she went to her boyfriend’s house not knowing she was doing part time-job to support herself.
There’s this man supporting her financially, because her job can’t handle some expenses in school, so the man was the one supporting her. Immediately, I started helping her in those bills she broke up with the man, I was surprised and asked to know why she did it. She told me she has no future with the man that he should now face his family and leave her yansh alone, Deborah sha…
During the examination period Deborah focus in her reading with zeal that I have never seen in my entire life, she even wanted to quit her part job but her boss asked her not to that she should take her time and prepare for school that her job await her.
I found the elder sister I wanted in Deborah, after the examination I begged her to follow me home, she couldn’t refuse me because I be her one and only girlfriend na. She agreed to spend some days with me and then travel home to meet her family. Sarah was asking me who the big aunty was that she hoped I haven’t brought someone that won’t chance her from marrying my brother, med girl.
When I told her Deborah was older than my lil brother and it won’t be possible. Sarah became friends with the person she was seeing as enemy before, my dad came during the week Deborah was with us and I introduced him to her. I could see that my dad was eating her up with his eyes, Deborah was beautiful no doubt.my dad even started calling her Debby. Ehnn.. he never take permission oh!
Deborah: your dad is cute ooh!
Me: yes na, my papa na the finest man on Earth.
Deborah: close your mouth joor.
Me: you know how many years him dey?
Deborah: thirty or twenty nine?
Me: aahh! when them come born me na? My dad married my mom after she got pregnant with me. Them be childhood sweetheart, he was twenty years when they gave birth to me.
Deborah: and you be nineteen years now oh!
Me: I be big gal.
Deborah: commot there joor. I could see Deborah liked my dad, she just won’t stop asking me about him. And my dad always find an excuse to come home those days, as a sharp girl I knew it was because of Deborah. My dad called me to his room and made his feelings towards Deborah known to me, asking me if he can marry Deborah. I was like lol daddy, You no suppose take permission before you wan marry my friend na.
Deborah travelled after spending a week with us reluctantly, love in the air faahh!!
