“Gabriel, you just called me a prostitute” Queen said as tears immediately began to flow down her cheeks.

“Excuse me, was I lying about that?” Gabriel asked with no sign of remorse,

“No, you didn’t lie, you are right, I am a prostitute, thank you very much for everything, and I really appreciate” She told him and turned to walk away. He had the urge to call her back but his pride wouldn’t let him. He watched her walk away out of his presence, out of his compound and then tears slowly started to drop from his eyes, he loves her, he really do. As she walked out of the compound, she ran towards a tree and immediately bursted into tears using the tree as a support to stand.

“He called me a prostitute” She said continuously as she cried. Yes, he was very right, she had displayed the exact act of a prostitute the day before by sleeping with John but if there is someone to call her a prostitute, it was not to be Gabriel. She cried for about 20 minutes before finally wiping off her tears.

As she walked down the road back to the hostel, she was determined not to go back to him begging again, she still love him but she won’t go to him for a talk, she would always continue to love him in silence even if he doesn’t come back to her, he is the only guy that had succeeded in turning her from her wayward self to a bit of a better person. Even if he ends up with another girl, she would still continue to love him in silence but never will she go back to him unless he comes to her.

He is a good and true guy unlike other guys who will only want to sleep with her and go, he was never interested in sex, he had loved her even after he knew the kind of person she was but everything thing changed the night he came back to tell her he was a cultist. She tried to flashback to the first time she had met him, she had always seen him in class but they never came close not to talk of them having a discussion, the first time she had caught him staring at her was during the fresher welcome night party, he was just sitting on a table close to where she was dancing, she had seen him staring at her continuously and she had thought he wanted to dance with her but someone else was already doing that. The surprising thing about him that day was that of all drinks he should have taken, he was busy enjoying himself with the bottle of water he had in his hand.

After that moment, she had gone drunk and couldn’t remember and she finally landed in his hostel the next morning. When she had woken up that morning to see him sitting on a chair, she had thought he must have had a fight with the guy she was initially dancing with to have been able to bring her to his hostel. Of course, she thought he must have had her for the night, no Uniben guy would bring a beautiful girl like her home without sleeping with her. He must be a weak fellow or a learner in sleeping with girls because unlike when other guys sleep with her overnight, she felt no body pain.

She stared at him again and saw him staring at her too, he had an innocent face. She got up and asked him for her pay for the sex he had with her but he denied it. She wasn’t going to take that, she had encountered boys like that in the past who had wanted to use her for free but she happen to be just a wise girl who grew up in the ghetto so all these were nothing to her.

She forced him to pay her the money and he did with sorrow and bitterness. She thought she was wise until she got home to discover that her menstrual pad was still on her, it was then she knew she had extorted him unjustly. She had promised herself to look for him and refund him back his money with a serious apology but the next time she had seen him, he got a good round of beating with some boys who had thought he was a thief because he was actually running away from her.

After then, they gradually began to fall in love with each other. What a funny way to meet a guy, he was different from any other guy, always straightforward and truthful, they were just getting to the beginning of their love life when problem set in and he became the cultist who wanted to have nothing to do with her.

Israel got home that day, it had been a bad night and the celebration couldn’t hold because they didn’t see Gabriel. As he stepped into the house, he was surprised to see Gabriel’s foot wear just outside the door.

“Gabriel” he called with relief as he entered into the room, he was shocked to meet his friend crying. “What is wrong with you?” He asked Gabriel, since he had known Gabriel, he hardly sees Gabriel cry, it was rare.

Gabriel didn’t answer him, he continued with his silent cry. Now Israel began to think about the one thousand and one wrong things that must have made his friend cry.

“Bro, what is it?” Israel asked again and this time, Gabriel opened up and narrated all since the previous night.

“You see something about love, it is something you can’t hide, I will advise you to swallow your pride and go have a talk with her, finds out who she wants, and if John Femi is the one forcing himself on her, then there might be another clash between us again” Israel told him, “But, most importantly, you should go talk to her first, a simple talk will go a long way” Israel patted him.

Gabriel thought he was right, that was the best thing to do, talk.

*****
It was another fine weekend, John Femi car drove into the hall two car park, he had come to see Queen. He had called her the previous day on phone and had told her he would come to take her out the next day for shopping. Queen didn’t object, she was actually looking for a way to calm herself and going for shopping wouldn’t be a bad idea. She soon came out to meet him, she was just dressed in a simple wear.

“Good afternoon” She greeted John with a forced smile, He returned her greeting and hugged her lightly, as they were still exchanging pleasantries, a taxi drove into the park and stopped, the inhabitant was Gabriel and the first thing his eyes caught was John opening the door for Queen to get in, he felt really bad because he had actually come to talk. *
