​We made love two more times that night. We both remained naked beneath the blanket, exhausted from the s-x we had. I didn’t feel guilty, with someone like Jafar, I didn’t know how much time I would have with him, Toun and Abayomi’s ish taught me that you should go for whatever you want, no one knows tomorrow.. 
I was awake but I was sure he was asleep. Even as he slept, he was so desirable. In another place, another time and in another world, I would have been happy lying next to him. But I had my fears, especially with the dream. I didn’t want him to die, he meant the world to me…I was the harshest judge of myself, but in Jafar’s case, I would rather be guilty being with him.
 When I opened my eyes again, he was not in bed. I checked my phone to see if he had left a message but he hadn’t. I called his phone, it rang close to me..i was glad he was still around. I wore the Jersey again, went to the bathroom to clean up then decided to call Timi.. 
Timi: hey..
 Me: you haven’t been picking my calls 
Timi: I was busy… 
Me: Timi, look I am sorry… 
Timi: its alright, I guess the heart wants what it wants… 
Me: we can still be close friends? 
Timi: I would like that.. 
Me: don’t forget to wear black tomorrow… 
Timi: sure, my regards to Jafar.. 
Me: Timi…stop..
 Timi: seriously..if he hurts you…tell him I will come for him..
 Me: he won’t… 
Timi: bye … 
Me: bye dear… I felt a weight lifted from my chest after I had spoken to Timi…I called Toun…
 Toun: babes.. 
Me: how are you faring
 Toun: I am better o…I cry less now.. 
Me: I am glad…
 Toun: don’t forget to wear black tomorrow.. 
Me: never… 
Toun: how is Timi and Jafar?
 Me: hmmmm 
Toun: what has been happening? 
Me: I broke up with Timi.. 
Toun: I expected this… 
Me: I slept with Jafar last night…
 Toun: wow!..you guys are together now?
Me: not really…I don’t know…I suspect he will tell me I am not safe in his house and I will have to vacate…but I am inlove with him… 
Toun: does he love you?
 Me: how will I know, I know he likes me though.. 
Toun: are you happy? 
Me: I am happy, but I am scared…I don’t want him to die…
 Toun: he won’t die… 
Me: are you sure? 
Toun: yes…
 Me: thank you dear, it’s such a relief talking to you.. 
Toun: I would be going to Zenon house on Monday, to pick my passport 
Me: that’s for your UK Visa? 
Toun: yes…mumsi said I need a change in environment… 
 Me: what if school resumes?. 
 Toun: fvck school! 
Me: Just take care of yourself dear.. 
Toun: you too Tee… Jafar came in with a cup of tea, two slices of bread and a boiled egg…
 Jafar : breakfast for the lady!
 Me: I have not brushed yet…I think I left my brush in Ijebu-ode..you have a spare…? 
Jafar: smelly mouth….you can use mine…
 Me: you can be romantic sometimes o… Jafar smiled.. 
Me: I would be going to Sagamu tomorrow to stay with a friend.. 
Jafar: when?
 Me: Tomorrow..
 Jafar: what happened between Timi and yourself… I walked to his bathroom, he followed me.. 
Me: nothing… 
Jafar: you guys had a fight? 
Me: no..
Jafar: sooo? 
Me: He kissed me and I realized I couldn’t kiss him back
 Jafar: oh… 
Me: what?
 Jafar: nothing
 Me: talk jor… 
Jafar: i’m glad you didn’t kiss him… He went out with his guys, he told me he wouldn’t be going far, so I spent my time taking my bath and cooking Jollof rice. I was wearing a blue jean and a purple top, I went through his wardrobe until I found his body spray…I wanted to smell like him so I sprayed myself tiny puffs of his “King” deodorant. Few hours later, the guys were munching the Jollof rice like they hadn’t eaten in a while.. 
Jafar: The guys are grateful, they haven’t eaten something as nice as this in a while.. 
Me: who does the cooking here?
 Jafar: I do..
 Me: what of all the girls that flock this place…? 
Jafar: Na u sabi…
 Me: would you be going out later today? 
Jafar: nope… 
Me: good…because I have only today to stay with you before I leave..
 Jafar: you are really excited about going? He was eating on the floor, while I sat on the bed with his TV remote control…
Me: not really, I would have gone to Lagos but I don’t think it would help my state of mind..

Jafar: stay with me here… 
Me: No…you know it is not proper at this time… 
Jafar: true… 
Me: when you finish eating, join me in the bed; I want to know about your childhood… He soon finished eating and joined me in bed… 
Me: oya, tell me everything… 
Jafar: I really never had an interesting childhood 
Me: how?
 Jafar: my father was into Contracts with the Military…I was his only child and my mother was dead. He couldn’t carry me all over the country with him as he travelled…so he brought me to Ogun-state, Mayflower Junior school. I was enrolled in 1 special…Holidays was spent with my matrons. He came by once in a while with a lot of money and stuff, but he soon disappeared…I was enrolled into Mayflower secondary school years later, unfortunately, he was a business partner of General Diya, so when Diya was arrested, he went into hiding. Even after Abacha died, I saw only his money..That’s my child hood.. 
Me: is that why you are schooling in the west? 
Jafar: yes…. 
Me: do you miss your mum?
 Jafar: nope, I really never knew her.. His phone rang… After talking for a while, he hung up… 
Jafar: I have to go now.. 
Me: why?…you said you will stay here…. 
Jafar: someone has been killed close to the market… 
Me: your guy?
 Jafar: yep.. 
Me: I am sorry… He nodded as he left the room with his white vest and khaki short. I was sleeping when he came back…the other guys came in quietly too. 
Me: how was it? I said this after I opened the door to see his sad face… 
Jafar: He is dead alright… 
Me: how did they kill him?
 Jafar: you really want to know? 
Me: yes…I want to know all that is in your head… 
Jafar: he was shot in the head. We carried his body before the police and school authorities got to it.. 
Me: why? 
Jafar: when a Confra member is killed, the school sends the body to the medical school in Sagamu, where 2nd and 3rd year medical students use the body as cadaver. 
Me: hmmmm, without the parents being aware?
 Jafar: yes…Tana, I don’t know what tomorrow holds, but if I should die, I should be buried that night…I have told Uche but you know….he might be killed too… 
Me: chai, which type of stupid talk is this?…you promised you would not die…
 Jafar: I wont…I am just saying should incase…
 Me: there is power in the tongue, shut up!
 Jafar: have I ever told you, you are so lovely? 
Me: nope…
 Jafar: you are..
 Me: why are you all mushy mushy now? 
Jafar: death puts a guy in perspective… 
Me: stop talking about death… We were both in bed… 
Jafar: I have liked you since the first time I saw you… 
Me: when was that? 
Jafar: During GNS 103, I was in your class, I saw you answer a question once and you got stuck in my head… 
Me: why didn’t you ever tell me…
 Jafar: because of Timi…plus someone like you doesn’t deserve just a fling… 
Me: that is so sweet… 
Jafar: come let me show you something…. 
Me : where? 
Jafar: Just come… It was past 9pm when I entered his benz with him, and he drove us into the night…
