I was scared to open the door but all of a sudden the door knob turned and the person behind the door came in believe me I was sweating so badly that the person who opened the door got alarmed and rushed to where I was seated, it was no one but my sweetheart Tilly, she asked me a million questions in a matter of seconds that I didn’t know which one to answer.
Later she saw my leg which had started to swell and that is when she realised that everything was not okay with me, I lied to her that when she left the party last night with her to be husband, Ken also left immediately and when it got late I also decided to leave to the hostel, some hoodlums chased me and in my bid to escape I fell and twisted my left leg, I further told her that I lost my phone in the that same attempt, I saw the disappointment and pain in the eyes of Tilly, I believe she was battling with her emotions for the trauma she had put me through even though I was lying to her, in my head I was enjoying what was happening but who cared what Tilly felt after all she also played with my feelings and even made me jealous when she left with that uncultured guy to God knows where.
She offered to take me to the hospital so my leg could be examined by an expert whether my injury was serious or not, she took me to the university hospital where I was attended to by a doctor and some x-ray shots were taken during my session with the doctor, Tilly asked permission to get some stuffs at home and by the time she comes back the doctor might be done with me, she made all the necessary payments of my bills before taking leave and in about 45minutes time she was back to pick me up at the hospital.
I was given a walking stick to help me walk and was advised not to engage myself in anything vigorous and also abstain from s-x if I wanted my leg to heal fast, as we got to Tilly’s car she handed over a brand new BlackBerry Bold 5 to me to replace my missing phone, you can’t imagine my joy at that time because that phone was launched just 5days ago in the country, poor man turned into biggie man all of a sudden, she brought me back to the hostel and went to her car to get the stuffs she went in for back to the room, she sent it to the kitchen and came back to the room to change herself, my God if not for this twisted leg and “stupid advice” from the doctor I would have pounce on her to devour her into piece, Tilly wore a hot pant with a spaghetti top to match and in fact I couldn’t take my eyes off her body, the taught of Maabena came to mind and immediately I flashed that idea out of my head because if I didn’t do so then I had to go and make deposit with the money she gave me at the coffin seller’s shop so that when eventually the alhaji’s macho boys killed me, I will save my mother the burden of buying a coffin for my corpse.
Tilly cooked for me and stayed with me till Monday morning before she left for class, all this while nothing happened between us, eeeeeeiiiiii the cat has managed to stay with the mouse in the same room without any conflict. Before she left she left 500cedis for me to use in her absence and pleaded with me to keep everything secret away from her brother once again and planted a kiss on my lips, wow I was over 2000cedis rich in less than 24hours plus a latest smartphone owner, I placed my sim card in the phone the moment I was left alone in the room and guess who called me immediately as phone registered my sim card?
Yes you are right it was Maabena my time bomb, I warned her in a polite way never for her to call my line again and that even when she see me dying by the roadside she should just pass me by because I loved my life the way it was before I met her
“TO EAT CASSAVA AND HOT PEPPER WITHOUT ANY PROBLEM IS BETTER THAN EATING PIZZA AND GETTING SERIOUS PROBLEM” was the proverb I said to her before cutting the phone on her.
My leg has gotten better and I had even started attending classes and one calm Wednesday mid morning Ken came back from campus very excited and singing loudly, I was eager to know the reason behind his joy and he sat me down to inform me that he and his sister are bound to leave the country that very evening to continue the studies in the UK. To him it was good news but to me it was the worse news I had ever heard from him, if am permitted to use this word I will say it is the badest news ever in my life and the annoying part of the news was that, Samuel Acheampong was going along with them to the UK, I believe his father was the brain behind this sudden change all of a sudden.
I got a message from an unknown number to come to the hostel basket ball court and I was wondering who the sender of the message was because I didn’t know who the sender was and the scary part of the message was that I shouldn’t let my roommate know that am meeting someone outside the hostel
Who could the sender be? Was it Maabena or the alhaji and his boys or maybe one of Ken’s numerous girlfriends? Should I take the risk of meeting the anonymous person?
You will know the person very soon when you join me in the next episode
