The Devil Who Loved Me ~Episode 16


​Abayomi had a bottle of Night Train which I collected from him. He and Chukwudi followed Toun to the store to spy at the people fuccking . I was looking for the perfect place to hide without being seen by people that know me. Everywhere was occupied. I blamed myself for believing that things might return to normal between Timi and i. if I had been any smart, I would have ignored him. I consider myself as a strong girl but this heart of mine brings me down. 
I saw an unoccupied Toyota, I sat on the bonnet and cried. The Night train was diffusing into my blood at a fast rate. I saw Acho and his chic walk pass. She gave me a frown while Acho limped beside her. Toun and Abayomi found me where I sat. 
Abayomi: omo igbo, why are you here alone na? 
Me: nothing, I just want to be alone 
Toun: where is Timi? 
Me: I don’t know The fool chose that time to come outside with Annie, I saw them before Abayomi and Toun did. Her hands were around her shoulder, he looked happy. Toun immediately came to hug me, Abayomi looked down like it was his fault. At that point I started crying again. Toun led me inside the house, saying I should dance my pain away. But it was a disaster when I noticed Timi and Annie dancing, Toun started dancing with me at the same time blocking the guys trying to come in-between us. 
The alcohol was taking its tool and I started dancing faster, Toun was enjoying herself, we were giggling. Then Toun stopped dancing as somebody was finally able to come between us. I wondered who had the mind to encroach on her space when I saw it was Jafar. For a guy that had a mystical feel to him, I couldn’t imagine him dance , talk less of dancing with me. I was probably not the only person surprised because it seemed that people stopped dancing to watch us dance. I was shy to dance wildly like I usually did, so I was a bit slow. I noticed the eyes that were fixated on us, I was shy. I was shy until his hands encircled my waist . My hips moved to his touch, he wasn’t smiling or had his mouth opened like guys usually did when they were dancing with a girl. We danced like we were royalty..
 Jafar: you declined having dinner with me because of this party? 
Me: yes…I had to come, but you had plans of coming too?
 Jafar: I changed my mind, Aisha and Uche once dated. 
Me: oh…I never knew… I started having fun as we danced and spoke. I got envious glances from the girls I had seen him with earlier.
 Me: not seen you in a party around before
 Jafar: I am not a fan of parties.. I didn’t want to stop dancing but he did after a while. 
Jafar: thanks for dancing with me
 Me: the pleasure is all mine, Jafar. Toun was winking at me when I walked to her,Abayomi was standing behind her, dancing to her bum even though she didn’t move.
 Toun: he likes you
 Me: who?
 Toun: Jafar. Timi couldn’t detach his eyes from you. I felt tinny winny happy. The Alcohol was taking its effect. I had finished the drink in the bottle, even though the ponch was still in my system
. Me: I want to go home.
 Toun : but the party just started..i want to eat barbeque. 
Me: Abayomi I want to go home. 
Abayomi: go and meet Timi na, I am with my chic. 
Me: May God punish you, idiot. Abayomi stuck out his tongue. 
Sometimes I do strange things that I cannot explain. One of those things was walking to Jafar that evening and sitting beside him. I looked at him and wanted to talk but ended up resting my head on his shoulder..
 Jafar: you want to leave this party?
 Me: yes 
Jafar: where do you want to go to? 
Me: Abuja..loooool.. I joked. I laughed as once again I rested my head on his felt so much like home. When I woke up, it took me a while to get to my senses. I was still high though. Everything was blurry. I was in a car and Jafar was driving. I dozed off.. When I opened my eyes again, he was still driving, he didn’t know I was looking at him as his eyes were fixed on the road. The road didn’t look familiar, I wanted to talk but I slept off again. Opening my eyes again, he was still driving. Ah ahn.. my house no far like this na..
 Me: Jafar whatsup? 
Jafar: hey, you have woken up.. 
Me: how long did I sleep? Last I remembered, was walking to your car.. 
Jafar: like 5hrs… slept off immediately we got in. 
Me: where are we going to, I don’t know this road and why should you be driving for 5 hrs? 
Jafar: I am just obeying you.. 
Me: obeying me how? 
Jafar: you wanted to go to Abuja 
Me: oh my God!!!!!!!!!!!! Which type of guy obeys a drunk girl, takes her to a state so far from Ogun in the middle of the night..? 
Jafar: relax
 Me: how can you tell me to relax?..turn back right away..
 Jafar: its 4am, we have been driving for 6hrs, we are in Akoko Ondo…in four hours time, we would be in Abuja. U rather we go back? 
Me: yes! 
Visit for more amazing stories 
Jafar: alright.. He swerved to the right of the road and parked. That was when I noticed the Volvo in front and the Hilux at our back. We were in the middle of a three man convoy to Abuja. This Jafar dey kolo o!.. Sparrow was the first to get to us, he was the guy pinned to follow me around. 
Sparrow: Jaf, wetin do your car? 
Jafar: nothing o, we need to head back? Uche came down from the Hilux and joined Sparrow at Jafar’s side of the car. 
Uche: mehn…sleep dey catch me o…we are less than 2hrs from Lokoja, I dey feel say we go rest for there o.. 
Sparrow: I swear! Hungry dey catch me sef, Jafar make we reach Lokoja first na, we fit return for morning.
 Jafar: if we get to Lokoja, then we will have to get to Abuja. If we are going to turn back, we turn back now. Another guy came down from Uche’s Hilux, short guy with a funny gap tooth..
 Me: im sorry guys, I thought Jafar was taking me home. They didn’t reply, but I felt it would be selfish of me to force them to continue driving. 
Jafar: so what do you say ma’am? 
Me: Abuja it is!…but what are we going to do there? 
Uche: no be u say Abuja?…i don tire o! 
Jafar: we will just hang out dear. I fought back the fear. I never thought for one second I will be on my way to Abuja with Four Confa guys..chai…Alcohol na B—–d.
 Me: Abayomi and Toun will be scared. 
Jafar: you will call them.. 
Me: no problem, I hope you return me in one piece.. The short ugly guy had a smirk on his face, I wanted to slap him but my liver no reach.
 Jafar: lets bounce.. As we proceeded with the journey, the only cars that passed by us were Luxurious buses. The Volvo remained in front, while the Hilux came from the rear. The AC of his car was the truth! wonder I kept dozing off..James Blunt’s “u’re beautiful” was playing in his car Cd player. If I wasn’t in a weird situation, I would have found this very romantic. With my seat belt in place, my eyes were involuntarily closing, but before I slept, I wanted to say something. 
Me: Jafar?
 Jafar: Tana?
 Me: you are the weirdest guy eva… I slept looking at the smile across his dark face and his well-trimmed goatee.. [
