Episode 1

Coughs)…… Being a handsome dude or cute guy does not really means that you have experienced love or you have sometimes know the feelings of Love,neither having many girlfriends can make you describe how you feel about love Because to me if i was asked that how can i define i would rather get you a seat and tell you “come and read my true life story………..

Phone Beeps “Hello mummy”i responded after waking up from my bed just to see that i’ve missed some piles of calls from my mum “Hello my king,where have you dropped your phone since the time i have been calling you”She replied me with a fustrating sound “I’m sorry mum,i came back late from class yesternight because i have a lot of assignment to finish”i replied her while still yawning which one can still tell that i’m just waking up “Okay no problem,i just want to tell you that your sister will come to your school today to deliver some food-stuffs to you”she said in a command tone of those yoruba mothers “(Supriser and excited) Okay mum,i will be waiting”i replied her while stuggling to have a stand-up from the bed **Oops,i’m sorry,i forgot to introduce myself ….My name is *Penorat*,my mum and dad calls me *my king* but my friends love to call me in a short form and asides that fact,they also call me Pen-Brain because my friends knows that i’m the one leading my department and also every ladies’man I’m a kind of guy that does not have interest in ladies right from my secondary school days (not because i’m forming good boy but)because i don’t have money to spend on ladies simply for the fact that i’m not an O.B.O ( olowo boy),and you know that these yoruba ladies can sU-Ck your money die But my case was opposite to that of my friends,Daniel,Wilson,Perry,e.t.c who also happened to be my room mates,they can have ladies la!d (s*x) almost four times in a day especially my closest friend *Ekony* fondly called Ekun by those who knows his attitude towards ladies on campus *Ekony entered* “Ogbeni,won’t you go for today’s class?”Ekony said as he came in seeing that i’m just getting up from bed “I will man” i answered with stressed look on my face “Well you efikos need not to read sha”Ekony jokingky said while he gets dressed up for the day’s class “Iwolomo,anyway where is Wilson?”i asked him “Shey that bahd guy?” ‘I don’t know,but where is he and Daniel?” I asked suprisingly as i made way to the bathroom “They both escorted janet and Mellina out”Ekony said as he packed up his books “Suprised“so you mean say those girls slept in this room with us yesterday night?” I shouted suprisingly ” gives out a wicked laughter see you,you are campaigning after election cant you see that?(he points to the pack of Cds left on the bed)”Ekony said as he continue giving me a kinda gestures “Oh my Goodness!!!!!,you guys are bad mehn”i shouted jokingly letting out a smile on my face…. “Well,man na you dey dull yourself,fk girls you no go fk,and here you are saying someone is a bad guy”Ekony said as he opened the door to make his way out of the room ” story for the gods,none of your business”i said to him while he was heading out Within some minutes,i’m set for the class,so late for lecture that i discovered that i need to baord a bike before the time runs out “Ehnnsss bike,”i called to the bike man who has carried somebody before me,but as the bike was getting closer to me,i realized it was a girls sitting on it On seeing this girl on the bike,my heart melted,i found my eyes glued to her own,unable to move away them from her,asides from flattering,i knew that down me there that she is so beautiful,looking at her long curled hair touching her back,her lips are just almost perfect,seeing her on the bike approaching me “To where?”the bike man asked “Block 6″i replied with my eyes focusing on her “How much?” “Fifty naira”the bike man replied “Okay but will….”i said to the bike man while my face was still clinged unto this damsel infact i have not admire any lady like this in my life, “Mr man will you stop looking at her and tell me if you are going or not?”the bike man snapped at me oh my goodness,so i was caught

“i’m sorry sir”i said while making attempt to climb on it “Hello dear will you come down so that i can come in first”i said as i noticed that she seems not to come down quickly No reply* “Hello….” “What’s wrong with you,are you going or not because i don’t have time for this early morning”She shouted at me angrily “Oh! I’m sorry if that offends you”i said feeling embarrassed as i climb behind her Through out the fifteen minutes i spent on the bike with her,my mind was just meditating on her as the perfume on her body kept filling up my nostrils,mehn!!! This girl is a gem but how could a beautiful girl like this have such a harsh attitude like thisi kept wondering amidst my pool of thought At last i got to my destination (class),dropped,looked at her face but she did not return the look as her eyes shows she is depressed, “Baba,take”i paid #100 making a signal to the baba that the second should be for the lady sittinf before me on the bike which i never knew or met except from today although we are on the same campus Immediately after this,i rushed to the class seeing that the lecture has been on for the past thirty minutes “Pen,why are you just coming now?”Wilson whispered to me with a quarelling face “Sorry bro,i woke up late and moreover you guys did not call me when you were going”i replied him with a different look “You are not serious,do you expect me to call you while i was escorting mellina and janet abi?” He said while writing “Isshh,free me man”i shut him off with an “i don’t care” look “You shunning me off right?,dont you know that the attendance has been taking,you better go and meet the class rep”He said in order to scare me “No prob,i will”

After the day lecture,me and my friends were heading towards our hostel when we saw a figure coming towards us,it resembles that of the girl i boarded bike with in the morning What she come to do again? did she come to abuse me again for paying her T-fare? i kept on thinking fearfully…


Episode 2

what has she come to do again? Did she come to abuse me again for paying her T-fare I kept on thinking fearfully and she approaches me in her flowing skimpy gown fixing her eye brow at me….i pray my Eleda have mercy on me**

“Hin be like say this babe dey come our direction,Pen-Brain”Ekony whispered to my ears
“yes, seems so”i replied

She finally stops before me
“who told you to pay my T-fare the other time ehn?”She shouted at me with her eyes widened in a furious manner
i calmed down myself down and spoke softly to her

“ahah girl you should be gentle now,i don’t think you should be acting like this”I answered her acting a cool guy
“Can you just save me from all these your cock and bull Smile story because as you can see, I know you from nowhere so I don’t need your money OK?”she barked at me while my friends stood there looking at her
“eesshhh, will you just shut the hell of your mouth up?,aah what wrong with you? a handsome guy like this (pointing at me from head to toe) paid the money for your transport and you lambasting him, like you not serious”Ekony replied her angrily as he made attempt to treat her fu-Ck up
“Mr ekun abi what do they call you,will u just keep quiet and let me finish my speech”she said as she moves closer to him
“bae,if you move closer again,i will give you an own-goal slap”Wilson said as to defend Ekony
From this moment,i realized that she is frustrated so I had to come to her aid in order to avoid further embarrassment from my friends because they will not take any shit from her

“Guys, please don’t do that please..because I don’t even know the cause of the fight (I turned to her) then what do you want to do now”I asked her as she seems to be adamant
“Ehn ehn,now you’re talking,my coming here is to (she opens her mini-bag and handed the money to me) return the money back to you”She says as she gave me #200 in expectation that I did give her #150
i sighed“so you want me to collect back the money”i said trying to keep calm “Yes!!!”she replied as she gazed at the sky But how will a beautiful girl be behaving like thisi thought
But as I kept on staring at her, despite her harsh attitude,she still attracts my attention
“okay, m coming, let me give you the change”i said as I stylishly write my number on the #100 note and gave it to her with a gentle smile on my face
“here you go”I said smiling as I gave her the money
“berra” she said as she collected it and hurriedly went away
“Nice to meet you,i’m Penorat by name”i said as I extended my handshake to her alongside my brightest Mr Cool Smile Smile
She snubs and walks out on me
Perry hisses as he watches her going towards the administrative block

“Mehn,Pen (turns to face me) where did you get to know that thing (he points to the lady)”Ekony snaps at me
“ohr you mean she,just forget about how I met her,let go”i stylishly shut them down as I urge them to let go
Right from the day she angrily left my presence,i never stop thinking about her,despite how she treated me and my friends that day I still feel for her.

i waited to see maybe she will give me a call but no she did not,i wish I could meet her once again,but after unlimited effort,i gave up trying
Sometimes my phone will ring but when I check it, I found that it is 5524 calling.
I never feel this kind of feeling before not until when I called myfriends into room one particular day after the day’s lecture
“omo,my stomach is singing Shakiti Bobo abeg Ekun what is in the house”Daniel said as he jumps on the bed because the day’s lecture was so hectic

“you no gbadun,didn’t we go to class together?”Ekony said giving a loud tiring sound
“this our lecturers will not kill person”Perry said as he kept on rolling in the room
While they were talking of food I was busy thinking of this girl I met at block 6 that I paid her T-fare ,she kept on reappearing in my head as her eyes were charming,honestly I feel unexplainable.

Suddenly I felt a harsh beat on me
“Pen-Brain,what wrong with you,are you not hungry,or what are you thinking”Ekony said after giving me a harsh beating on my lap
“ohhhr,man that was to harsh dude, your hand pains alot” I replied angrily

“okay,sorry what are you thinking of?,let us know”Ekony said as he shift closer to me
They all like me,maybe because I help them with their Papers

As I was about to talk,Perry and Wilson entered

“Guys,there is this lady that I’ve been thinking of since these days, I just can’t help but to think of her,i guessed I’m in love “i said openly
they all laughed laugh

“Guys, why are you all laughing now?, is it funny?”I said angrily

“nothing bro just laughing Laughing “Perry said

“ooppppeee oooo, our friend is in love”Daniel said as he shout with Ekony and others
“well, now you see that love is a good thing”Ekony said

“they Mr pen who is now that lucky lady to have a genius as her boyfriend”Perry asked as he stood up to cook beans for all
“Hope you guys still remember the girl that you have issues with a couple of weeks ago”i said like pitifully because I know what their reaction will be

“Ehn ehn,wait hope it is not what we are thinking?”they all chorused
“y..eee..ssss, she is”I stammered
“Yeeeee, mo gbe ooooo”They all shouted …..


Episode 3

“Yeeeeee mo gbe ooo”They all shouted on hearing this

“Pen what is wrong with you,how will you claim that you fall for a girl that walked up to you just to hurl abusive words at you and we that happen to be your friends on the fact that you still do her good by paying her Bike money for that matter “Perry said backing us while he was pouring the beans in the pot on the stove

“I wonder oooo Perry, wait you know what pain me pass”Ekony said
“let us hear you jare” Daniel said he sat down focusing on Ekony’s mouth like his life depended on what he was about to say
“you know what,on that day,if not that Wilson blocked her,that thing wanted to slap me ni sha”Ekony narrated give some exaggeration with gestures

“Ahahaha”they all shouted
“So you mean she could have light your face on that day if not Wilson hindered her”Daniel said in surprise as his mouth was opened agape

Walai Talai,Ekony replied as he touches his tongue with his forefinger raising it up
“Guys but you still don’t…..”I wanted to talk but Perry shut me up

“Just keep quiet jhur,wait so is that the lady you fell in love with?”Perry asked as he draws our reading table nearer to sit
“Guys, please just hear me out,i love this girl…….”

“I say shut up guy, you can’t date that babe, don’t you know that a lady that you have not even woo that reacted like that to you and your friends, what if you eventually date her, won’t she break bottles on your head”Wilson said trying to give me a regretful look
“you’re just misunderstanding her emotions,the girl is just frustrated on that day, that was why she reacted in that way,she may be sad or something else”I said pitifully
Gbegbe gbogbo enu e soun,ahah, Pen-Brain wake up!!! shey this girl has inject you ni?Perry handled me roughly shaking me to get me on my ears as he shouted into my ears
“**i sighed as I stared at the door like as if I was expecting her to enter but *kolewerk* *****

“Pen , why are you talking like this,you can’t date this babe,she is just not your type at all, (he faces Ekony),Ekun Abi o WA gbami lowo Pen ooo“Daniel said as he was fuming up and down but it like the more they talk about it,the more she kept on reappearing in my head
“Guy just leave pen for me, I’ll know how to handle him”Ekony said as he gave Daniel a Friendly pat on his back.

“Guys can we just leave this issue of a girl we never knew her name set….. (faces perry),guy abeg the beans never ready ni?,that pen’s girl gave me bread when I was coming to class the other time”Ekony said jokingly which made everybody laughed including me.
*~><><>&&&&><&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&~
Minutes turns to Hours, hours into days,Days into weeks, I’ve never set my eyes on this girl, checking her department,she’s nowhere to be found at all

*but I think she too is in this school now abi wait ooo,i hope this girl is not an *akudaya* or a ghost*i began thinking of her in my room one day when I heard a knock on my door and to be surprised,it was a lady’s voice I heard saying,”hello is *Penorat* inside”
On hearing this my heart gave out a loud thump sound guessing that she is the one because Honestly to know that you are in love with someone,check how you feel when you see them or hear their names,those are one of the greatest feeling I have ever had in my life

On getting to open the door,what i saw made me feel the other way round
I received the greatest shock of my life when I found out that it was the person I was………..(To Be Continued)

Episode 4

I received the greatest shock of my life when I found out that it was the person I was not even thinking of at the moment was the person that stood in front of me loaded with what I could guess that it was foodstuffs
“Where have you been since all this while that I have been knocking at the door thinking you will open it in time”My younger sister who has been at the door angrily said
So she has been knocking since and I don’t know,to the extent that I have been alone with my thoughts since all this while I began thinking
“I’m sorry Nilly,i was sleeping then”i lied to her as I try to yawn

“My Brother,can you be sleeping all this while without even knowing that someone is at the door”she complained further more
“woo, ejo e ti poju jare, will you enter or you will stay there watching me”i snapped at her showing gestures to her to come in
“hmmmm,okay oooo”she said in a succumb manner

“aahah where are your friends?”she asked as she sat down on the long-flat bed which was carefully la!d by a side of the room
“they are out for dinner”I replied without looking at her side
“then why don’t you
go with them”she asked in a concerned manner

“Dear,your questions are too much,will you deliver the message mum sent to me”i angrily shouted at her
“oh!! Please m sorry oo,if that makes you infuriated”she said in the midst of fear when I shouted at her
“whatever”i snubbed her
“when boda mi,this your house is not easy to locate oo, you won’t believe it, that it was one aunty that led me to your room here”She narrated herself

Although,when we were been shifted from 100 level to 200 level,i and my friends have decided to be staying off a campus
But what is my sister trying to say,who is that lady that can know where I live on off a campus when I don’t even have a girl-friend or a loveri thought for a while
“wait wait!! Aburo,who is that lady that you said she led you here to my place”i asked her with 100% concern

“hmmm, actually I don’t know her, but all she told me when she was leading me here was that I should thank you for the other day”She said as she began to unravel what she brought from mum

“wait ooo,what exactly did she said that you should thank me for in the first place”i asked her as my body began to feel uncomfortable
“hmmmmm, I can’t remember egbon mi” she said as she sees my full concentration on her lips

“ahaha please aburo mi, remember please”i began to beg her
“hmm, okay I think I remember,she said that you paid for her transport fare on that day”she said not noticing my reaction
“whaaat,you mean the lady brought you here?”I asked as I shouted with regret
“yes now,”

“and you can’t call me that she’s at the door so that I can come to meet her”i said blaming her innocency
“not like that now, I asked her that she should wait for you so that you can help me thank her because she was the one that did not let me to be missing by now and she even waited for you at the door but when you did not answer on time,she said she had to take her leave”Nilly (my sister) narrated
On hearing this from her,my legs began to shake as I feel defeated

So it was the person I have been thinking of that was at the door with my sister since the past few minutes*

“ooooooohhhhhhhhh, I missed her again”i said as a drop of tear flowed out from my eyes
“Hope no problem bro? “my sister (Nilly) asked in shock

“nothing dear”i answered her meekly
“well if you say so”
“what did she call her name for you?”I questioned her

“Aahah,i did not ask that one from her” she said as she help me to arrange the food in piles

“Okay,is she a little bit tall”i asked her
“yes bro”
“she is fair in complexion”i continued asking
“yes bro”she answered
“she has a long curly natural hair touching her waist”i asked lovely
“ahah,boda mi,have you ever seen her before”my sister asked me in amazement
“Nilly!!!!”I called her name three times
“Yes brother” she answered me with a full concentration
“you see what”

“what brother?”she asked me in concern
“that lady that brought you here is the woman I ” I said in a brave manner..
“My brother,if you love her,then go for her” she said giving me a hardened heart…..

Lina:-no problem,bye bye

Myself:-wait!!

Lina:-what again now?

Myself:-you’ll say bye for now

Lina:-laughsokay bye for now

Myself:- yeah hangs up

Throughout the night,till the next morning I wasn’t, feeling like myself,j was just wishing I could fast forward the time to 7:am in the morning but I had no option than to wait patiently for nature to play its role
Early in the morning,i and my friends after devouring our SOKUDALE were already glued with our Books showing that we’re ready for the day’s lecture
“Guys,i don’t think I can walk longer,i Don tire”Ekony complained as he broke the silence

“that serves you right,when I was talking to you earlier that the food you were eating is too much but you remain adamant”i said without paying attention to him
“na you know jare”he said as we were entering the lecture class

On entering the class, I saw a figure emerging from the other entrance of the class,as the figure resembles that of Lina,Behold I was so amazed when the figure blinked at me and smiledwith her teeth all out, Oh my GOD,I couldn’t believe that what I have been going to search for in sokoto is right inside my pocket,so the girl I have been searching for all this while have been in my department,i mean the same department with me….Nice one I said to myself
About 30minutes later,the lecturer noticed that as he was teaching,i was just smiling,not until when he could not take it any longer than to ask me the cause of my joy and happiness
“Pen-Brain, what’s wrong with you today,or why you smiling all the day”Lecturer Bioku (who was believed by his name that he is one of the still birth children popularly called ABIKU) asked me with a fatherly smile on his face

“Nothing sir,i’m just imagining a person searching for his CV since the past few weeks and not knowing that it is right in his pocket gently and neatly wrapped”I said in parables to Bioku

“hmm, I get you boy but pay Attention to your education and after then your cv will come to you”he said as everyone in the class burst into laughter
In the next 2 hours the short break commenced which gave everybody a chance to go outside to refresh themselves,but as for me I immediately went out to the lover’s garden to wait for the love of my life
Seeing her coming,i adjusted my dress just to make sure that I stayed cute,
When people compare their crush with a celebrity,i will compare this girl with a heavenly goddess,As she was approaching me, her shapes were giving me a melted heart,probably the first time in my entire life will I see a very beautiful lady without a single make-up, mean everything about her is natural

From afar,i saw her laughing continuously as I joined her also in the laughing galore
“why you laughing? “she asked me as she approaches me closely
“then why did you made me to laugh in the first place?”I answered her still smiling
“probably because you don’t know that we’re in the same department since all these days right? ” she answered as we both sat down closely beside each other
“hmm, something like that”I said giving a smirk face

“hmm,well so what’s up” she said looking at me
From the moment she said “what’s up” I knew I have to take charge of the discussion now

“I’m good,” i said looking straight into her eyes
“so now that you have seen me, what else do you want oo”she said as she play with her hair

“Well,first of all my name is…..

“Penorat-Collins,the best student in the department of dentistry”she snapped at me
“wait,so you mean you know me?” I asked her with an amazing look
“yes, I do”she said smiling
“wow! That great but i”m not the best student ooo”i said flattering
“hmm,everyone knows you are..” she said that which made the two of us to laugh
“so what your own name dear?” I asked her

“Lina-Magarina” she said looking at me
Immediately I heard this,my heart sank into my shoes

“wait, is it not the same Magarina,i mean the present politician”i asked her with a fear on my face
“ahah why do you ask?” she asked me with a baffled look…..

Episode 7

“ahah why do you ask?” she asked me with a baffled look

“hmm, you know Magarina is a man whom everybody has got a great flare for in politics and he was known to have a good reputation in the eyes of the poor,a stinky rich man,he had many things,and I know you knew him because he is always on the newspaper and article everyday” I narrated to her with some lovely gestures which made her laugh
“oopppss,you’re so funny pen”She jokingly said

“so are you his daughter” I asked her with a serious look

“Noo I’m not dear” she said as gazed away from my direction
“but you resembled him and…. “

“it’s okay,i said I’m not his daughter” she said as I noticed her voice raising

“I’m sorry Lina”i apologize immediately
” spare me please!!!!” she says as she shifted away from my direction

So she get angry easily like thisi thought
“okay let go get iced cream before the next lecturer comes in”i jokingly said as I drag her in friendly manner

“leave me alone jare” she childishly said
“oya sorry now, someone cannot play with you,is that how you use to do“i said as I jokingly shrugged her ribs

she laughs*okay let me stand up by myself” she said putting up a little smile on her face showing that she’s no more angry
After the day’s lecture,i was smiling till I got to our hostel which was on off a campus
On getting to our hostel,i met Ekony and Perry who were already devouring the Eba and ewedu soup which I guess is being brought by one of their side chicks

As I entered,i was so happy that I did not even notice how the two of them were fighting over the two plates of Eba and Ewedu
I began to whistle around the whole room happily because I felt that I have beginning to have one of the greatest feeling I have ever had in my life

“oh boy wetin happen to you today that makes you feel happy like this”Ekony said as he forcefully collected the Pot of Eba from Perry

“** I continued whistling**
” Guy talk to us now,se you don hammer abi you don Ferrari?”Perry asked as he continues to unwrap the third wrap of the finely prepared eba

“she takes away my heart,she is the one that occupies my brain, I just can’t but think of her”i began to soliloquize
“it seems our friend is in love”Ekony said as she faces Perry who was already gulping down the last morsel of Eba in his hand
“Ehn Ehn, Pen-Brain now tell me about the lady that got over your head and turn you to a baby”Ekony said jokingly
“(faces Ekun and Perry) you guys can’t understand,i said as I walk out on them after giving them a friendly pat on their shoulders
“Anyway lover boy come and take your own eba before Daniel comes,you know he’s a lion when it comes to food” Ekony shouted behind me as he saw me entering the kitchen
“and I hope it’s not that bitch that gat no respect for her Baba okos“Perry jokingly added

×****

Right from that day that I and Lina spoke together we have been the best of friends,because we talk together like almost every blessed day both on WhatsApp and Facebook,to the extent that she is now free with me but she hasn’t come to my house but we are best of friends
Later that night,my phone rang and seeing she is the one,i smiled

i picked it up

Lina:- hello pen brain

Myself:-hello baby gem i murmured*

Lina:- what did you say?

Myself:- and you’re a baby gem

Lina:- she laughs,but help me plead to your friends about how I reacted to them the other day

Myself:- no problem

Lina:-okay thank you dear

Myself:- but Lina if I may ask, what happened to you the other day that made you so sad and dejected

Lina:-hmmmm, pen!

Myself:-yes dear

Lina:- it’s a long story

Myself:- and do you wish to let me know?

Lina:- I will tell you everything but not now

Myself:-okay dear

Lina:-byeee, Sweet Dreams

Myself:- same here


As days turned into weeks and weeks turns into months our second semester exam has been fast approaching,all the girls and guys that do form before are now staying glued with their books because nobody want to find him/herself in the relegation zone
I and my friends were studying when I heard my phone ringing,slowly I picked it up but I was baffled when I saw the name on it Lina
Hurriedly I dropped my book, Ekony and my friends were staring at me but mio worry

i picked it up

Lina:- hello Pen her voice sounds so cold

Myself:- hello dear what happened to you,your voice sounds so babyish

Lina:-i’m trying to read but I am not gaining anything at all

Myself:-ahaha why?

Lina:-i don’t know

Myself:- then what do you want to do now

Lina:-maybe you should come around to my house now,when I see you may be I will gain something

*On hearing this,my heart sank into my legs

Myself:-What did you just say now??……
(To Be Continued)

Obscure words:-
Someone cannot play with you…..:- informally it’s a particular slang gotten from a Nigerian singer

Relegation zone:- as used in the expression it means carry over
Mio worry:- I don’t care


Episode 8

Myself:- what did you just say now?? i said it with a great fear running through my veins*

Lina:-Yes now,so that we can read together maybe at least I can grab one or two things into my brain

Myself:- ookk..aay I wiilll… Come i said stammering

Lina:-okay I will be expecting you oo

Myself:-No problem dear **i said with fear as I became the object of the attraction from my friends

Lina:- OK bye Hangs up

As I dropped my phone,i hurriedly packed my books and reached for my Shirt,but all this while,my friends were watching me not until when I was about to wear my shirt that Perry charged at me

“Where are you going?”Perry said
“To somewhere”I replied without looking at his side

“but do you think what you are doing is right sha,we were both reading here and you got a call,the next thing you want to do is just to go out?”Ekony angrily yelled at me

“okay,guys I’m sorry for not letting you know where I’m going to,i want to see a friend of mine at the next block”i lied because I knew that if they know that I want to go and meet Lina, they will not take it easy with me at all especially “Ekun”

Which friend and which block”Daniel questioned

Became angry* but guys why are you just pinning on me,must you know everywhere I going”i asked with anger

“Yes, because how will a lady that called herself Lina will just call you and you will leave us here without even letting us know that she is the one you were speaking with and moreover the lady is nothing but a bitch “Perry charged from behind

Wait!!! Did I just hear him call “Lina”,how did he know her name,how did he recognize her voice,or have they been together before??* I began thinking rhetorically because what I’ve preventing has finally happened
“hoo…w did you guys know Lina ” I stammered as I faced them

“ooohh!! You’re surprised right?,don’t be surprised because we your friends will not let you date that thing “Ekony said with a wicked laughter

“whether you like it or not,She is the lady I love!!”I said with a defiant look
On seeing this,my eyes turned red,the anger rose in me as I angrily left the room for Lina’s house
After several minutes of walking,i have been getting loads of calls and messages from Lina
“won’t you come again”***

As I was moving nearer to her house my heart started beating faster….

knocks
“when you are through, you should enter” a voice which I guessed could be Lina’s emerged from the inside room
“so you knew that I am the one”i said smiling as I entered

On entering the house,my heart melted,the inside was just too much,the room was lavishly furnished with expensive things,from the big chairs to the theatres there,dammnnn!!!!! This girl need to be daughter one of a rich man

But how did a 200level student can acquire all this flashy things I began to think not until when I noticed she was coming from the room

“thinking that I have this big apartment right?”she said with a smile boldly written on her face
i smiled* something like that sha” I said because I knew she has known my mind
“you funny, well, I’m not the only one living here,my friends and I stay together”she said as she sat down on the chair tiredly
“okay which means that you and your friends contributed to secure this place” I said as I extended my arms around the room
“yes, something like that sha” she said
“So why are you not grabbing anything since”I said after receiving a friendly hug from her
“I’m just disturbed” she said with a tired look on her face
“that means you are thinking about something?”I said smiling

“something like that”she replied
“probably thinking of something or somebody you want but you want to abnegate yourself from it” I said guessing

“wow! How do you know?,do you read minds? ” she said surprisingly
“no I just study and guess” I replied jokingly
“oh that means you must be a good guesser” she said, laughing

Now let read so that wicked Bioku will not fail us oo”i said as I began to unravel my books from my bag

“okay,you’re right jare”she said as she brought out her note
Myself and Lina studied together for roughly four hours,while doing that,i noticed that she was responding well as I was asking her questions,she felt so happy but one thing about it is that throughout the time I spent with her,she kept staring at me affectionately,although I wanted to tell her how I feel about her but my mind keeps telling me that it is too early but I don’t know why this girl keeps entering my head…
At around 6:30pm I needed to leave there because I know that if I stay too long,something else might happen
“Lina,i need to go now”I broke the silence
“ahah,why?”She asked with a frown on her face
“I’m sorry I need to go”I said giving her a friendly hug
But as I was about going,she dragged me aback and said……..
(To Be Continued)


Episode 9

But as I was about to go,she dragged me back and said ” You Melted my heart
“Ehn what did you say? “I said as I pretended not to hear her although I don’t understand what she said

“oh!!! nothing I mean you made my day”she said as she gave out a crocodile laughter

i sighed* okay no problem,I’m about to go” I said as I grabbed the door knob
“ahaha won’t you wait for me to get dressed up so that I can escort you”Lina said on getting up towards the room
“but you don’t need that dear, just continue reading, it’s night already”i said stopping her from following me
“no, I insist” she said as she stand up walking majestically to the room
When a lady is being called Sexy it doesn’t mean she is beautiful or charming,it just means she is just only good for sex,but when a lady has natural beauty,she is beautiful,I can tell that Lina has the two features because Immediately Lina stood up and turn her back at me to make way for the room,my eyes were gazed on her front and backs,but luck was against me because before I could even look away her eyes had caught up with mine

“what are you looking at?”she said as she frowned a little bit
” i’m… Soo.. rryy ,I’m sorry,i did not mean to be naughty”i stammered, feeling so ashamed

“No problem,but next time,learn how to control yourself and don’t be a naughty boy again” she said smiling
“o….okaay”i said looking down at the ground like as if the ground should swallow me alive
“Is that the reason why your mood changed”She said as she was about entering the room
“ahh,not at all”i said giving out a fake smile
“well no problem,wait for me to change”She said on entering
Few minutes later,Lina was through with her dressing and we both headed to our house. her block was a little bit far from mine but she insisted that we should trek so that we can talk more together
As we were talking,Lina immediately grabbed my hands and wrapped it with hers,she feels softi think as I felt her hands but I don’t want her to leave me

As we were close to our hostel,i felt she should be going back to her apartment now
“Don’t you feel you should be getting back to your hostel now” I said as I stopped and turned back at her

“hmm, you are right,but I feel like staying with you Pen”she said with her eyes perfectly fixed on mine
I laughed on hearing this from her*
“why you laughing now, is it funny?”she said with a sad look on her face
“No no not at all dear”i lied
“then why are you laughing at what I said”she said still holding my hands but now tighter than before

“you know it can’t be possible,because we are all male in my hostel and besides it’s bad and thirdly you need to get prepared for tomorrow exam” I explained trying to convince her
“hmm, okay ooo,if you insist,extend my greetings to your friends”she said as she turned her back to go
As she left my hands,i drew back her hands,turning back at me again
“You want to say something? “she said
“hmmm… No” I stammered
“if it’s no, then good night oo”she said as she ran heading back to her hostel
On getting back to my room around 7:30,I was very hungry,like serious and GOD’s so good as I was entering I met my friends who were already devouring the Bread and Beans being cooked by Perry

“where my own food guys?”I shouted as I jumped tiredly onto the bed

“see his mouth,your babe did not cook for you”Ekony said as he was already crushing the bread and beans together

I think Ekony is right,Lina offered me food and wine,i was the one that formed Big boy*i though for w while

“Please guys, I don’t want to talk,just give me food”i said as I stylishly shut them up
“Thief,just go and take your own on the stove”Wilson said as he gave out a loud laughter

“na you guys sabi” I said as I made way for the long awaiting pot of my own Beans
Before I could finish eating,my friends have slept off, As soon as I finished eating,i feel like reading because i just had the feeling that I have not studied up to my satisfaction
As I was reading I could not concentrate directly to what I was reading because Lina’s picture kept reappearing in my memory,her curvy body,her long curly hair without makeup,her charming face especially when she laughs or whenever I crack a joke,
I don’t know why,i can’t just keep my eyes off from Lina….. who will save me from this pool of endless hearty feeling that I have gotten myself into.

i keep asking myself “is this Love or Lust” Sighed I guess I’m in Love……….


Episode 10

Sighed I guess I’m in Love……
When I felt that I can’t grab anything into my head again,i had no choice than to jump on the bed waiting for nature to take place
After two weeks,our exams are almost over with the general paper as the last one,in the scorching hot sun, I can see Lina waiting for me under the tree beside the exam hall
“what keeps you late” she replied with a little frown on her face after standing up to meet me

“I’m sorry dear,initially i was waiting for My friends so that we can go together” I said with a little smile on my face

“and you did not know that you are keeping somebody waiting here all day long” she said angrily

“I’m sorry now,even I…. (before I could finish my speech,Ekony and Daniel bumped at us)

“Pen-brain let go home”Ekony said without even looking at Lina’s side

“Ahaha guys I think that I have begged you not to be angry with her(i pointed to Lina)
“Guys,ok OK OK, I’m so sorry for the other day’s incident”Lina said with a lady’s smile on her face

“hmm, now you know how to apologize abi?”Daniel said raising his eyebrow
“OK She laughs,above all guys I’m sorry”She said showing all her 36s as she spread her eyes wide in air

“hmm, well I believe that you guys have forgiven her at least”i said giving Ekony and Daniel a friendly punch

“well, no problem,that’s over,Lina should we go over to your hostel because I’m hungry like Lion”Ekony said jokingly
“Ahaah,just like that,”I said with amazement gesture

“abi what else, since she has pleaded,then she needed to be forgiven”Daniel said smiling

That one thing I like about Ekony,no matter how angry he is at someone,if that person can beg him, surely he would forgive that person

“so how was Your Own papers?”Ekony started the conversation which made us all join him

Like play like play, we all went to Lina’s hostel on that day, she served us with some local dishes

“mehn this girl is a good cook I swear”Daniel said after rolling down a bolus of fufu into his mouth

“Yeah Dan, you’re absolutely right” Ekony said in support

“ohr see them,thief,you said you no like someone,yet you ate her food”i said mockingly

“Na you sabi,at least we’ve settle it amicably”Ekony said with a smile on his face
“Guys,are you okay with that food,does it taste good?”Lina asked as she came to pack the dishes

“Pen,this girl must not slip away from your hand ooo”Daniel whispered in silence
* I raised eyebrow at him*
“ohh, I’m sorry”Daniel said in understanding the signal
“Pen na true ooo”Ekony said without care
“shhhh, when we get to the hostel we shall talk about that,not here” I snapped at them
Right from that moment,i had loved Lina more than anybody in my life except my Mum.
Lina had every quality a guy want from a lady but this fear kept on coming to mind

What will be her response if I tell her my mind, but I just can’t withstand it seeing another guy standing beside her* I thought for a while in my room

The door opens*

“Omo I Don check my GP ooo”Ekony smiled in as he saw his grade point

No reply*

“Pen!! No be you I dry talk to?”Ekony shouted as he gave me a hot lash
“Ehn Ehn, she’s back?”I jerked
“what were you thinking?”Ekony said as he sat down beside me
“Nothing man, so how was the result,what was my point?”I asked him as I stood up from the bed and sat up right again
“Ahaah,you’re funny, who will be the first in the department if not you?”Ekony said with an unnoticeable smile
“well I thank GOD” I said but still thinking
“Are you not happy,pen what’s wrong with you,you never look depressed like this before”Ekony asked as he paid attention to me

Sighed”Ekony,this feeling is killing me,i kept loving this girl”I said pouring out my mind to him
“wait oo,is it not Lina?”Ekony asked
“yes,i love this girl with all my heart and soul,i just can’t resist her but I don’t have the courage to go and tell her” i said lamenting
“Man, this girl loves you now, you better grab your opportunity now or never”Ekony said with a warning look on his face
“Then I think the time is now to let the cat out of the Bag” I said with a defiant look………


Episode 11

“Then the time is now to let the cat out of the bag” I said with a defiant look evenly spread on my face

“That will be better guy,because I think you should tell her your mind before it is too late”Ekony said as he began to wander around the room in search of food

“Ehn Ehn, did you help me to check your GP”i asked ekony
“funny you,who will take the lead if not you Pen”He said jokingly as he brought out his long awaiting pot of rice

Smiles bahd guy” I said with a little smile on my face

“So pen,we are all going to the lover’s garden tonight,would you mind coming with us,you know that you always form Holy holy pikin”Ekony said as he was already devouring the rice
“no I’m not,Lina called me that we should go to zoo” I said as I was dialing her number on my phone

*laughs zoo ke?”Ekony said as the rice almost poured out from his mouth
“Yes now,anything wrong with that?”I asked with a frown face

“oh no,i’m just trying to Imagine that how you and Lina will go to the zoo, to do what? “Ekony asked rhetorically
“well no you sabi”i said as I kept on dialing her number

“is that not her number you’re trying to dial
***(The door opens as Daniel enters) *
“yes now,(faces Daniel),abeg guy, you get airtime on your phone? “I asked Daniel immediately he entered
“ahaha,wetin you no wan let person enter first ni?”Daniel snaps at me with a cold look
“I wonder oo, just because he wanted to call a bae,na him dey make him shiver like this
“Ngbo,who is that bae you want to call with my call card”Daniel asked as he joined Ekony in his operation of the fried rice
“Don’t mind Ekun jare,he’s never serious jare”I said jokingly
“okay but tell me who you wanted to call before I will give you my phone”Daniel said with his face showing that he’s becoming too serious
“shebi it’s Lina I wanna call” I said as I reached my hands to borrow his phone
“If it is Lina I can’t give you my phone man”Daniel said with an angry look
“you taking this thing personal now, why can’t you borrow him your phone at least what are we friends for”Ekony said angrily at him
“I just can’t give him and that’s all”Daniel said as he wanted to make way through the door but Ekony quickly drop his food and Cross him at the door
“Dan, I’m suspecting you,why don’t you want to borrow him your phone”he said as it shows that his temperament began to rise
“Ekun,will you allow me to pass or I blow you off,is it by force,i said that I’m not giving him my mobile phone “Daniel said angrily
“Ekun,leave him alone let him go” I said to Ekony showing that I’m trying to show peace
“no I will not”Ekony said as he dragged the phone with Daniel, in the process the phone dropped and I tried to make the call as soon as possible. As I began to dial the digits 07035231
* into the phone,i noticed that the phone has already brought out that number and the name My Baby

Immediately I saw this,my heart sank into my shoes,I was vibrating without moving
wait ooooo,could it be what I am thinking,is Lina and Daniel having something together*

“whaaatt”i shouted as I saw Lina’s picture on Daniel’s Phone

“what is that”Ekony rushed at me loosing himself away from Daniel captivity
“come and have a look” I said as I showed Ekony what I saw on his(Daniel) phone
“Whaaat,Daniel!!!!”Ekony shouted as he was facing Daniel who was standing like a small baby of eight years old that bed wetted
*So Lina doesn’t love me at all,or does she? I can’t believe that this is coming from one of my best friends,Daniel for that matter,How Cruel has life been to me from the minute I knew what was happening. So Daniel and Lina had been dating each other without my consent since all these daysI began to think

But Now Should I say that it was my fault for not telling her my mind on time or the fault of my friends for betraying me……


Episode 12

But now,Should I say that it was my fault for not telling her my mind on time or the fault of my friends for betraying me…

Seeing what was happening,it was like my heart is being pierced by a very sharp object,i feel the pains

“Da..an..n..iel,”i said softly with pain showing up in my voice
“I’m soorry friend,i can explain to the betterment of the matter
“And you know how much I love this girl with all my heart? “I asked him with a tearful eye
“I know,but actually what happened was that…..”

“Shuut up,you devil,you traitor”I shouted at him as I barged out of the room
I’m sorry Pen”He continued pleading softly
“I trusted you with all my heart as a friend not knowing that you are a Vicious friend” I said with a painful eye
“‘what you did was so bad,Dan,you betrayed the friendship man”I heard Ekony scolding Daniel with words before I angrily left the room

When the world feels like an inhabitable place to live in,it either things are not going the way it is supposed to go or one of the people you love are not feeling the same or loving you in return…

Right from that day I discovered that something like that is happening between Lina and Daniel,My love for Lina had turned into hatred,my feelings has turned sour against her……..Oh what has life turned to be for me….

Since that day,i never called her nor say hi to her

Some Weeks later, I felt that she would have been noticing my abstinence from her but as for me I don’t want to see her
,Not until when she called me the day I and my friends (except from the traitor) were packing our luggage preparing to go home for the second semester holiday when my phone rang

Phone rings

On seeing her number,i cut her off the line
She called back again but still I cut her off the second time

“Pen,but you saw your phone ringing and still you did not pick it up why?”Ekony who was also packing his own load voiced out when he could see the drama

“I just don’t want to pick it up”i said as I continued to pack my stuffs
“But why?” Perry asked from the other side of the room

“I don’t want to pick it,it’s an unwanted call”i said with an angry face

“But it doesn’t mean,you sho….”

“I said I don’t want to pick it up man, Any issue with that?” I shouted at Him
“Oh sorry for interrupting man”Perry said dejected

At that moment,i knew that I have hurt him as a friend but I wasn’t going to beg because I warned him earlier

“You See ,i understand how you feel bro,but what if she has something to say?,just hear her out in the first place”Ekony said as he moved closer to me with a soft voice
On hearing the way Ekony talked to me,i have no choice than to pick up the call

I picked it up**

Myself:-Ehn Ehn

Lina:-ahaha,Penorat is it good with the way you are doing like this,you did not even call me talk less of knowing my whereabout

Myself:-**Like you are sick or something is wrong with you abi? ***** I’m sorry

Lina:-okay so are you going home now or you are still around on campus

Myself:-Is something wrong with you or you have tetanus in your brain*I’m about to get to the car park.Bye bye.

Lina:- ahaha,but why are you behaving like this to me Pen?

Myself:-how am I behaving at you i snapped at her

Lina:-but Pen you have changed ooo

Myself:- see, I did not change at all, you are the one that changed me….

Lina :-change you as how?

Myself:- see you later,byee
Lina:-wait wait….

Myself:- i hanged up

“Is she the one?”Daniel said trying to show case good friend

“if you ever beat your lips together and talk to me,Honestly you will not find it funny at all” I shouted at him at the top of my voice
“Guy just hold it up there, you can see how he feels now”Ekony and Perry silent him……

“My Friend,you see things just happen the way it will be,but you should not let that one break the strong bond between us because of a lady”Ekony said with a consoling friendly voice….

“But Lina is not just any lady”i snapped back at him……..


Episode 13

“But Lina is not just any lady” I snapped back at him……

“whether she is or not,all I want you to do is to forgive him(pointing to Daniel where he stood at) for the sake of friendship”Ekony pleaded

“Ekun, I heard you right, but I want you to help me ask this traitor……

“No no, why now Pen don’t call him a traitor,afterall as a true friend,he has pleaded for forgiveness what else do you want”Ekony corrected

“Whatever, help me ask him that is it true that he is truly dating Lina”i said with a red eye on me

“Pen, I won’t lie to you,See although I have known Lina since this days even before you met her,i just decided not to let you know because when I got her number through one of her friends and I have been trying to get her but she kept on refusing and turning me down,but I noticed that right from the day she met you,she has fallen in love with you drastically,even on the Last time we all went to eat in her hotel,it all showed on her face, so on seeing this I decided to leave you guys together and keep away from her just for the sake of friendship”Daniel narrated which one can read from his face that he’s sincere with what he said

“Then why did you save her number with “My Baby”?”I continue loading him with questions
“that was the only mistake I made Pen, I’m sorry Friend “Daniel said soberly
On hearing what he said,my hands fell down,the anger in me died rapidly and was converted into blame Gbam gbam I fell on the bed with my eyes fixed on the ceiling like as if I was reading something through it
“Have you now seen the truth of the matter clearly now”Ekony whispered in to my hears
“To err is human…..”Perry said in a Preaching tone

“To Forgive is Divine”Wilson finished the quote
Hearing this slogan from my friends, I knew that I’m all at fault because,i did not find out patiently about the matter before bumping into action

Suddenly I stood up half way from the bed and gazed through my friends face and to Ekony***

“Be quick man, you know what you should do”Ekony corrected me in parables

“I’m Sorry Dan, I’m sorry about all I’ve done to you,i did not waited patiently for the truth to unravel itself, “I said in an apologetic mannee
“i act like that because I’ve gotten too much love for Lina,because she is my dream girl as you all know”i said in a remorseful manner
“I understand brother, I too I’m at fault too, because I should have told you earlier”Dan said with a smile on his face

“I know but I should have known that ‘To Err Is human’ “I said

“To forgive is divine”Ekony,Daniel,Perry chorused and we all laughed as we hugged each other.

After the settlement on that day,me and my friends both went to the car park waiting for the bus to take each and every one to his destination

Getting back home to see my family was a great privilege for me, the local dishes my mum used to prepare for me and over night gist I will always have with my sister “Niniola”(fondly called Nilly by my dad and mom)

After we took the dinner together,i was still at the parlour discussing with my mum and dad when my younger sister came to meet interrupt our discussion

“Ehn Ehn, Big Bro,how is school”She said jokingly as she jumped on the chair
“Through out the afternoon, you did not ask of anything,So it’s now that I’m discussing with mum and dad that you think that you should ask about school from me”I asked raising eyebrows at her because I knew where she is driving at

“She’s just a spoilt brat,maybe she want to ask of something or somebody”My Dad said jokingly

“uhmmm, what of that aunty?”She asked
“Which aunty again?” I blinked at her so that she won’t burst the matter
“wait oo,my king which aunty is your sister talking of?”my mum jokingly said
“mum don’t mind Nilly,she’s just trying to be a naughty girl” I said as I frowned at her (Nilly)
“Mum,dad don’t mind Big brother,that aunty led me to the new apartment where he and his friends secured”Nilly eventually burst the whole balloon

“So my king has finally gotten a lady”My Mum and dad said simultaneously
“Don’t mind her oo,she’s just not being serious”I said but they had believed her already

‘well it good son, just make your Education your Number one priority” my dad advised
“thank you sir”i said making a bow
“No problem dear”my dad said
“when you true children ,make sure you switch off the TV,we going inside”My dad and mum said

“you see (I turned to Nilly),I will kill you today,who told you to tell dad and mum”i said as I sat down on her

“Yeeee,mummy big brother Don kill me oo “she shouted under me
¥£¥£¥£¥£¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥¥£¥¢¥¥£¥¥¥¥
After a week at home,i was so happy without a reason,i was chatting with Ekony,Daniel,Perry and Wilson,on group chat when my mum called me

“My King your phone is ringing,seems you have a call”my mother called me from the kitchen

As I got there,i found out that it was a strange number

On picking it,i realised that it was Lina
pick up*

Myself:-Hello

The caller:-Are you at home?

Myself:-(immediately I recognize it is Lina) yeah

Lina:-i know you knew it is me Lina

Myself:-yes I do

Lina:- Great,So Come and open the gate, I’m waiting for you outside

Myself:- what!!!!!!!! ……


Episode 14

Lina:- Great,so come and open the gate, I’m waiting for you outside

Myself:- what!!!!!….**i shouted in surprise

Lina:- you’re surprised right? She said jokingly

Myself:-I’m coming,don’t move an inch,i mean don’t come in ooo i said with phobia

Within a flash,i ran out of the room like a horse heading to the gate with only my nicker on me.

But on seeing the figure in from of me,Mehn my heart melted…..Lina was as beautiful as ever but I quickly waved that away from my brain and immediately crushed her with questions…

“What have you come to do again?”I asked with a total surprise

“What have I come to do again in my boo…. Oh sorry in my friend’s house”She immediately cautioned herself

i sighed on getting that message okay no problem” i said with the phobia still burning in me

“won’t you usher me in?”She said with a little bit anxious

“not only usher you will see Michael Jackson”I snapped at her raising my eyebrow at her still in front of the gate

“Abeg, make way for me jhur”she said as she pushed me away from the way

“oh my goodness,Lina Lina,wait wait” I shouted as I kept on running behind her but before I could meet her,she Is already inside the house

On getting inside,Niniola could recognize her from afar

“wow!!!! She’s here at last”Nilly shouted happily as she ran to give her a tight hug
My sister is just an extrovert,because when she likes someone, that’s all
“I told you that I will make it here today”Lina replied her after receiving a friendly hug from her

“You can have your sit,while I go to the bar to entertain you with drinks”my sister who is an extrovert said happily

*Now I know verily the main reason why Lina’s visit was a surprise to me,so it was my sister who gave her the description of our house,WTF!!!I thought angrily at first but after that,i became happy because at least I saw the love of my life

“wait how did you make your way to this place” I asked for assurance as I saw her on the couch watching the TV after Nilly went out of the dining room

“Please I didn’t come here because of you ooo because you didn’t invite me here ,and as you can it was her (pointing to Nilly’s direction) that invited me to come over,Okay?”She said angrily at me

i sighed

“But I’m talking to you,i expect a direct answer from you”i said as I stood at her front
“Pen,please don’t talk to me,at least the last time I called you,you raised your voice at me so please let me be”she said angrily as she waved her hands on air

On seeing this,i foresee that I’m the one at fault so I have no option than to apologise
“Lina, I’m sorry,i don’t mean to do that please dear”i said kneeling down in front of her
“please don’t embarrass me here today oo, how do you want your sister to feel if she sees you like this Pen”she said with a surprised look

“let her meet me like ……”

“Sister,here is your drink”Niniola said as she was coming with a bottle of wine
As I noticed her footstep approaching,i just bend down to pretend as if I was searching for something that is not missing
“Big bro,what are you searching for?”Nilly said jokingly because I guess she overheard our discussion

“It just an ant but I have killed it sha”i lied
“well no problem,(she faces Lina) Aunty hope the drink taste good?”She said as she sat down beside Lina

“Thank you very much”Lina responded in her ladylike tone

Sooner the two of them started talking,from one thing to one another,they started the gist for about an hour nonstop. When I perceive that seems I get no chance of coming in I have no chance than to go into my room and lock myself up
While chatting on my whatsapp,a message just popped up from Lina saying “You better come and meet me downstairs because I’m about to leave”

**Leave ke? Nibo?? ** I thought as I hurriedly got out from the bed running towards the dining room …….


Episode 15

**Leave ke? Nibo?? I thought as I hurriedly got up from the bed running towards the dining room…..

Rushing downstairs,i saw that she’s truly about to leave

“So if I don’t come down now,you will not tell me that she’s about to go abi? “I said raising eyebrow at Nilly

“Ehn but you have known now,so less I forget,Big Brother this was the aunt I was telling you on that day that led me to your hostel”Nilly said

See you,like as if I don’t know Lina before,my babe to be**I thought on hearing my sister
“so aunty Lina,meet my brother and You (she faces me) oya meet aunty Lina”she said jokingly
“okay, so when are you going back to school?”I said facing Lina
“wait so you guys have been so intimate like this?”She (Nilly) said in surprise
“We not just intimate, we’re best of friends,it just that he behaves like a naughty boy sometimes”Lina said which made all of us to laugh

“hmmmm, okay ooo I’m not talking again oo”Niniola said in conclusion
“You better not” I said jokingly
“so is this how you are going to escort me out?”Lina asked raising eyebrows at me
“yes, what’s wrong with this?”I said raising my hands akimbo

“with singlet?”she said jokingly
“yeah anything bad in that?” I said raising my eyebrow.

“you won’t stop being a naughty boy”she said as she shot me a smile
“okay I’m coming back”i said as I hurriedly went upstairs to catch my top

After a little minutes of escorting her,i made signals to Nilly meaning that she should go back home

“okay aunty Lina,lemme leave you here to go home,but I’m so happy that you came to our house”my sister said hugging her like IYAWO WA

“okay dear,thanks for the entertainment and hospitality”She said smiling
After my sister went back home,i decided to see her (Lina) up to the car park,for about 10minutes thinking she might got mad at me for what I did to her the other day,not until when she broke the silence
“So you won’t talk abi?” she said staring at the ground
“I do but i…..”

“you know how you treated me badly the other day because of what you heard from your friend Dan right?”She asked me rhetorically

On hearing that,my heart skipped a bit as I stopped to look at her but I summoned my amazement*

“I know you will be surprised by hearing that from my mouth”she said like as if she knew my mind

“yeah you right but above all I’m sorry,i acted out of jealousy”i said as I said regretfully
“well it’s nothing,but next time,try to find out the truth before acting”she said in a scolding manner

When she said this I stopped and looked at her, her words and what she said because what she said pierced through my heart
“Let go now”she said as she came to where I was leaning against

“Lina please forgive me about the other day,i have known the truth now,please ,I don’t want to loose you dear”i said looking at her eyeballs

“you’re funny, I’ve forgotten about that one jare,i know you did that because you like me..”she said with a smile on her face
“thank you dear”i said with my my mind half relieved

“no problem, is that all?” she asked me smiling
“No it’s not”i replied
“what again Pen”she said

“you see Lina let me pour out all my heart to you today,you see the feeling is becoming unbearable for me,i will say you took over my brain and my heart from the first day I saw you,Lina I’m falling for you “i said facing her seriously

She laughs*Pen you’ve started again, won’t you leave this your talks and jokes and let go”she said as she wanted to go.
Immediately, I drew her back to myself with our lips an inch away from each other.
“Lina,please don’t joke with my feelings,i mean it….


Episode 16

“Lina,please don’t joke with my feelings,i mean it, I’m serious”i said with my Eyes fixed on hers

“whhh…oh my GOD ,Pen……”She opened her mouth like as if she wants to say something but she closed her mouth again
“I know you will be surprised on hearing me like this thinking that I’m not well but I want you to know that I just can’t withstand seeing another guy standing beside you”I said with my Lips still very close to hers.

“Ohh, Pen what wrong with you or how? It’s me Lina”She said still leaning against me
I sighed Hmmmm, I will say nothing now, because you will continue thinking that maybe I don’t mean what i say but I want you to be thinking of two things”i said telling her the signs with my finger gestures
“And the Two things are?”She asked me with surprise boldly written on her face
i kept mute until she bid me goodbye****

On getting back home on that day,i couldn’t believe all I said was coming out from my mouth

Penorat why did you say this kind of thing**** I blamed myself as I continue thinking still on my sofa
But sometimes,the things you think that is bad needed to happen just to bring out the thing you desire,just because it will favour you
Around 8:45pm as I was about to sleep,a text popped into my phone,On checking it,i saw that it was message from Lina,mu heart skipped a little bit not until when I saw what the message reads

“You acted like a devil in and angel’s shoe today Pen,i don’t know what to say but you will still repeat what you said once again on my face”

Seeing this message,my heart sank into my shoes Repeat kini? I thought as I continuing rolling from one side of the bed to another. shey me that the little I said gann it just by chance

Throughout my stay In house,i couldn’t get my real self because I couldn’t just imagine myself standing in front of Lina once again
Meehn,this strange feeling of mine is turning me into something else
Very very rapid our semester break is over,i got back to school the next day our semester break session ended

Meeting back my friends,especially my closest bahd guy Ekun

During one of our chatting in hostel, me and my friends were in the room gusting
“Guys omo,that house wey I go dry like madd “Perry and Wilson Began the chat

Ekony busted into laughter*””

“what funny man? “Wilson asked feeling irritated

” I’m sorry guys, but for me, the semester break I spent at my home,i was just having those chicks in my neighborhood la!d, like I don’t feel like coming back to school”Ekony narrated jokingly

“omo gist us now”Wilson said trying to show interest

“forget,no let me tell you about that but anyways I enjoyed my semester break”Ekony said in conclusion

“mtchwew,guys if you know wetin happen for my own side you go pity me”i said as I extended my thoughts to them
“what, jawasi“Wilson said trying to show interest

“you know that girl I claimed that I love”i said in focus
“Ehn Ehn,you mean Lina?”Ekony asked in assurance

“yes now” I responded
“waooo!! Nice one bro how did it go? “Ekony asked with a question
“how many rounds did you get with her?”Wilson joined in the loading of their questions at me

“actually,i told her everything I had in my mind for her but things turned around the way I thought it wouldn’t be?”I said as their expectations died down

“Mtcheew,”they all hissed on hearing the bad news

“why you all hissing” I asked in confusion
“when you no fk her then why are you talking like that?”They all chorused
“well I felt that should be the first thing I should do”i said as I shut them down
“but you should be able to get into her guy, no dull yourself”Wilson said in an advanced manner

“but Lina is not a lady I want to have sex with buy to spend the rest of my life with” I said with a total seriousness

“then what do you want to do now that she has turned you down”Ekony asked in a baffled manner

As soon as he said it, a voice resembling Lina’s voice called from outside

×

“anybody at home?”the voice said from outside……


Episode 17

…..”Anybody at home? “the voice said from outside

“wait.. is that not her? “Ekony whispered to me from behind

“how am I supposed to know? “I said loudly with my hands raising up in the hair
“your voice is too loud man”Wilson whispered to correct me

“Guys this girl is a mami water ooo,like say she no be bastard”Perry said as he pepped through the window to check

“You don’t mean it? “Ekony said as he also went to check through the window.
“Hello,anybody at home?”the voice sounded again from outside

*Clears throat“Yes, who is that? “Ekony said pretending not to know who is it
“It’s me Lina” She said from outside which made us to confirm that she is just the exact image we were talking about

“oh Lina dear,how far?”Ekony and my other friends greeted her as she enters with piles of book in her hands

“how are you guys,and how are you doing? “she said as she exchanged handshake with them

“we’re cool bae,and you too?”Perry answered her as he offered her a seat and meanwhile I have stylishly went to the toilet to hide forming the i don’t know when you came in
“mehn,you won’t stop looking gorgeous,i mean muah muah”Ekony flattered
“Ekun…..

“no it’s Ekony not Ekun,Don’t be like your man (Referring to me)

She smiles*”Okay Ekony please enough of this your flattering,shey are you just seeing me today? “She said jokingly
“Lina, that the truth ekony is telling you,infact our friend is lucky to have you jare “Wilson said jokingly

“Wooo,you this guys will not kill me, anyway is pen at around? “I heard her asking me from where I was

“You say? “Ekony said jokingly
“I mean pen your friend?”She repeats again
“okay,take”Ekony said as he gave her a writing pen

“What is this? “She asked feeling somehow
“Pen now, or ain’t you the one asking for pen? “they all asked in laughter
“stop kidding me now, I mean Penorat,your friend”She said raising her eyebrows at them
“Ehn Ehn, you will say Penorat not Pen “they all said

“Oh my goodness, you guys are something else ,okay where is Pen……”before she finished talking,i was already coming out of the toilet

“thank GOD you are here”She said as she came to give me a friendly hug

“I’m sorry dear,i was easing myself,so what did you come to do “I said on seeing that my friends are going out of the room for us one by one

“Ahahahah,guys where are you going? Hope I’m not the cause of your exit”She asked smiling
“ahah, not at all dear, we just wanted to take fresh air outside and that all”Ekony said on behalf of others

“OK no problem, if you say so”she said as she faces me squarely

“hmmm, I wanted you to teach me the work that lecturer Bioku taught us in the class”She said with her book closely to her chest
“okay” I knew she lied because I knew that she wanted to See Me but I tried to overlook it
Throughout the time I was teaching Lina our eyes were plucked on each other. She was looking at me and I just can’t help the situation but to stare at her in return
“wait, why you looking at me? “She asked,smiling

“how did you see me if you knew I was looking at you”I questioned her
“how, why would I look at you ?”do you think you are that handsome “she said in a joking manner
“I know I’m not handsome but I’m the best man you will ever have”i said looking serious now

“who told you that you will be my man? “she said looking at my face

“But, Lina I won’t lie to you,i have never have this kind of feeling before,i love you dear”I said with a very serious look because I never knew where that boldness came from
“hmmmm,Penorat”she called my name fully for the first time

“Yes dear”i answered with a baby look
“Let leave that issue till another time then”She said frankly

“see, tell me, Lina this thing you’re giving me is unbearable,let me know my fate if you will date me or not “I said with a stern look
On seeing my reaction,she dropped the book,and went mute for about one minute before talking again

She Coughs** “You are a darling but the truth must be said,i can’t date you”she said as she move her face away from mine and stands up to go out of the door

As I heard i can’t date you from her mouth ,i felt something like a sharp object piercing through my heart,in fact I can say that, that was the first day I ever felt sadness,because all I could only see was a drop of tear flowed through my eyes as I saw her going out,Because what she said was like A love that is in the Dungeon……….


Episode 18

Because what she said was like a love that is in the Dungeon of Dejection………

From that day Lina told me that sad news my thinking and my morale has changed immediately,i could not think straight again at all,but with the encouraging words I heard from my friends,i felt consoled

“Hello guy, shey na book you dey read abi wetin you dey do here? “Ekony asked me as he entered

“No jare, I was just reading this GNS,you know I have to revise”I replied
“Guy you better leave this,shey you won’t pass if you don’t read ni?”Ekony said seeing the others entering
“na you know, but as for me I want to read”I said

“see,we are going out for lunch would you mind going on with us? “Perry said in conjunction with what Ekony said
“hmm okay i will, at least to go off from this boredom”I said

“Thank GOD you accepted today”Wilson said jokingly

I always feel good when I and my friends go out because we do feel like the BAHD GANG but on this particular day after coming out of the hostel and off to the eatery, as we were eating in the eatery,i and my friends were gisting randomly

“Guy,omo life sweet pass poverty “Wilson said as he tears the thigh of the meat loosely hanged in his mouth

“see his mouth,he loves food”i said jokingly
“Olounje iyaa”Ekony said to him as he also continues devouring his own food.

“iffah hear,you are abusing him,are you not in the same category” I said jokingly
“wait wait oo, Pen,i saw something,but don’t look at your back”Ekony said with a serious look

On hearing this,i was baffled that what did he saw that made me afraid of not looking back
“But guys what did you saw that you said I should not look back”I said in a worried manner

But as a man I had to take courage and look behind but what I was thinking of was very different from what I saw

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw Lina and one of the so-called big Boys on campus
Whaat!!! Lina with another guy What rubbish*i thought as I saw the two of them hugging and doing sort of things including hugging each other at the reception

“Guys that Lina, abi don’t you see it” I pointed to her as the meat fell off my hand instantly

“you shocked bro, you shouldn’t be,because that’s how most ladies behave”Ekony said making his hands akimbo
“Guy you just have to do like as if you don’t see anything at all”Wilson advised but I don’t accept that

“I have to go to her”i said with a defiant look evenly spread on my face
“wait oo,you better act like as if you saw nothing”Perry intervened
“That what they call bone face “Ekony said

I sighed, looked at her direction,look at my friends eyes,looked up and suddenly I stood up, going to where she sat with her newly acquired boy friend

“wait don’t go pen”Ekony said for the first time,i did not listen to him
“Hello brother” I greeted the guy but he snubbed me
“Hello Lina,may I take one minute of your time”I asked politely

“I’m sorry boy, you can see I’m busy”she said as she unwrap the Shawama into her boyfriend’s mouth

“But Lina….
“Hey, Mr man, you can see that she said she’s busy, can’t you just understand”the guy said angrily
“Lina, it’s me Penorat”i said as I touched her

Gbaaammi believe something landed on my left hear but I couldn’t figure out what it was
“what,you slapped me?”I said as I regained my consciousness
“and if you touched her,i won’t mind to slap you back”The guy said angrily
Before I could defend myself,my friends have charged at him preparing to give him the beating of his life but I stopped them
“ooohhhh,Pen I hate this,leave me alone with this guy,let me teach him manners”Ekony said angrily as he was fuming up

“Leave him guys, it’s not his fault”i said as I stopped them
Immediately I turned around and faced Lina with an effrontery

“Lina,i promise you that you will live to regret this”i said with a warrior look
And immediately I said this, I stormed out of the eatery with my friends………….

Episode 19

And immediately I said this, I stormed out of the eatery with my friends..

On getting back to the hostel,Ekony and Wilson were just fuming up and down the room saying nothing until Ekony bursted out
“ooooo,pen what is wrong with you, Ehn answer me,a stupid guy slapped you in the public because of your so-called bitch that you called Lina and you said we should not touch him, tell me what’s wrong with you,are you intoxicated with that girl or what because I don’t get you”Ekony narrated angrily
“Woo,that one doesn’t pain me Ekun,you know what pains me most is that when the guy slapped him(pointing to me),that stupid girl was just standing there watching him”Wilson said angrily
“guys I’m sorry for the trash”i finally bursted out
“Spare me man, you’re too cool on this girl abegii”Wilson said waving his hands away as he angrily left the room
“I said I’m sorry guys,let accept the fact that I’m the one that caused the whole scene”i said pleading to Ekony
After I said this, Ekony moved closer to me and whispered to me saying
“Pen, this girl doesn’t worth you, I mean she’s not up to your standard,you need to get off her and restructure your relationship life”He said and headed for the door,as he was about to hold the door knob he looked back and said something that touched me
“And Pen, I want you to remember that a record of natality shows that if a baby boy is born in hospital today, Four baby girls will be born in addition”He said with a defiant advice
“And how does that affect me man”I said with a baffled look
“It tells you that ladies are not something you can kill yourself upon,because you have more than enough so think twice”He said as he finally got out of the room
As soon I heard what Ekony said my heart went on an instant resetting,my thinking changed instantly

Oh my goodness,why did I fall in love with the wrong person? Why did my first love dejected me?i began thinking rhetorically

i cursed the day I met you (Lina),I cursed the days we spent the days we spent together…..Oh my goodness, Had I known,i would not have fall in love with you , because you are like a devil in an angel,This life has turn to an inhabitable place for me to live I began to think rhetorically on jumping on the bed like a dead dog.

After the incident, the thought and the memories of Lina has been vanishing from my mind little by little
Two weeks later,our exam is over,the result had been posted over the notice board and every student have been checking his or her own on it
On getting there I received the greatest shock of my life when I saw the Grade Point if Angelina Adams to be 2.3,

“whaat, what a woe” I exclaimed suddenly but when I remembered what she did to me, I felt like That serves her right
“Brother hope no problem,your voice is loud”a gentle voice from the lady standing beside me emerged…

“ohhh, m sorry dear”i said as I stylishly cling my eyes on her asset…

Omo,this lady must not leave my vicinity*i thought within myself…..

On seeing this lady,i don’t want to flatter her than what she is…..

Honestly she is like a princess,she has a beauty like that of a queen,i love her composure, she just have everything thing a man has and needs from a lady,she is fair in complexion,pink lips,curvy sides e.t.c, mehn this lady must not leave me like this
As I was thinking I noticed that she is about to go

“Hey dear”i called her from afar
“hi how you”she replied in a monosyllabic manner

“I’m good,i can see that you were checking your result on the board earlier,are you a student here”I asked her after expressing my Mr Cool smile
“no I’m not a student of this school …”she said casual
“waaoo that’s so amazing…….

Episode 20

“waaoo,that’s so amazing”I said pretending to be surprised
“yeah,i came to help my friend check her GP here”She said humbly
“first and foremost, I’m Penorat and you?” I said with my eyes fixed on hers
“and I’m Sania “she said introducing herself

“okay, well that’s good,so where are you going now? “I asked her with a MR Cool smile
“Ehn I just want to go on a stroll “she said with her beautiful face

But honestly I won’t lie, I can’t say that this lady is finer than Lina but at the same time,i can’t say that Lina is finer than her because she is just not a lady you can walk up to anyhow,seeing her documents and assets,it is so exciting,she has everything a man wants from a lady like this…..

“So will you mind if I escort you there?”I said still standing facing her seriously
“Don’t mind”She said as she prepares to go

i held her hand back* “Not so fast”i said and she smiled

“Mr man do you want to cut away my hand ni? “she said jokingly raising eyebrows at me
“Hmm, well if you insist I should not escort you no problem”i said letting go of her hand
“thank you very much Sir”she said giving a crocodile kneeling

Will she go away like this,,absolutely Noi thought as I saw that she’s a bit far away from where he left me, immediately,i ran up to her,to her front

“Hey can you tell me the size of this?”I said after running up to her as I held the attachment fixed on her head
“You mean this? “she said stretching the her

“No, this”i said pointing to my head
*hearing this she laughed
“You’re just a naughty boy “she said laughing

“okay, it’s size 33 and bought it for hmmmm,i think #7000 or something “she said

“why i asked is that my younger sister is a fashionister ,so it maybe useful to her”i said jokingly

“Hmm, okay that good “she said in approval as we continue walking together which was unknown to her

“But can you share me your digits so I can give it to her”I said stretching my phone to her

“okay no problem”She said as she collected my phone and popped in her number
“okay thank you dear,i will call you at night then”i said as I stopped suddenly and bid her goodbye and blinked my eyes at her which made her to return that with a smile
When I got to the hostel,i couldn’t help but gist my friends who were already in the hostel
“Around 8:30pm in the evening I called the lady on phone

She picks up***

Myself:- hello dear

Sania:-hello who is this

Myself:- this is Penorat,the guy you met at block 5 in the afternoon near the queen’s hostel

Sania:-oh how you been

Myself:- I’m fine and you

Sania:-same here, but I thought you said that your sister was a fashionista

Myself:- I did that because of your digits because I know that you won’t want to give me your number

Sania:-She smiles naughty boy

Myself:-so but are you staying around the school

Sania:- okay let meet at the lover’s garden how about that?

Myself:-no problem see you there
Right from that day,the bad memories of Lina has been vanishing away from my head ,and all I think about now is Sania,it is like the girl keeps getting prettier every blessed day I see her ,she’s humble,caring and has all these asset

We spend most times talking about life,she told me about her past relationship and I told her mine including all my adventures with Lina
With this it has made us more closer than ever, she will sit on my laps, snap selfie with me and all sort

*** I have to act fast before this one get off me,i need to tell her how I feel about her, cos I can’t afford to lose this lady oooo… but is it not that she is keeping me in the friend zone ***** I thought as I was studying in my room one blessed day…….


Episode 21

I thought as I was studying in my room one blessed day….after the day lecture
Our days in school are now numbered because as a final year student,our convocation ceremony is to commence where everyone is to collect his/her certificate and coupled with my friends we were also happy
We all busted into laughter*”Guys I’m so happy that my five years in this school paid me well”Ekony said after cracking a lot of jokes for us
“Well we all thank *GOD* for his mercy over us from a fresher…..

“to a whole Graduate!!”Wilson said in completion

“That good,i just wonder who the best graduating student will be? “Perry said jokingly
“Ahah wetin dey do this guy? Like say you no know who the person will be”Ekony said in correction
“Then who will the person be? “I asked jokingly although I knew it was me they were talking of

“you of course,you have been on First Class since 100 level then what do you expect?”Ekony said raising his eyebrows
****On hearing this I smiled a little within me ****

“But as for us, we kuku no know book but thank GOD say I take babe commot this school “Ekony said trying to change the topic of the conversation
“and what are you trying to insinuate? “I asked with a little frown on my face
“what I’m trying to say is that don’t because of the case of Lina, you should now be lonely”Ekony said while others agreed with him

“I know Lina is gone in my life forever but I don’t think I’m lonely after all I have all of you beside me here” I said

“Guy that not what he’s trying to tell you”Wilson said as he shifted a little bit forward
“then what? “I asked with a perplexed mind
“Pen this what I mean,don’t you know that you need a new partner soon or do you want your mum to be asking for your girl before you know what to do next?”Ekony said as he stood up wandering around the room
“Okay if that be the case you will know my girlfriend soon”I said in confirmation
Wasere Omo mi “Ekony said chopping knuckles with me

Right from the day Lina’s boyfriend slapped me in the eatery, I have promised to take vengeance by myself but as time goes on, I forgot about it but determine that nothing will ever happen between me and Lina
But ever since I met Sania,My relationship with Sania from day one has been becoming real,if I’m asked about how I feel for her,i will say nothing than to smile because I think I have been loving her more than what I expected. Initially I thought I was not going to fall in love with any lady apart from Lina but Now when Sania came into my life,i feel blessed,seeing her everyday makes me feel turned on,from a curly hair reaching her tops and skirt,she dress like a Miss
We have been so close to the fact that we do things together except from XXX
But it was a week to our Convocation day,i knew that if I did not tell Sania my heart,i may end up loosing my precious element

Penorat,you have to act fast before things turns out to be what I don’t wanti thought one day on my way from where I went to defend my project of my last paper,So I decided to call her

She picks it up
Sania:-Hello naughty boy

Myself:-i smiled how you dear

Sania:-I’m fine,where are you?

Myself:-I’m coming from the hall

Sania:-won’t you come to my house ni?

Myself:- okay I Myself will come

Sania:-I’m waiting ooo,

Episode 22

see this girl,i called her to tell her my feelings but she called me to her housei thought
As I was going to her house,i gave a call to Ekony about where I was going to
On getting there,I and Sania both chatted for over an hour,but my mind is not with what we were saying,i just acted along, from there we switched on to Ludo game

“ahaha you use ojoro for me ooo i played double 6” she said as she rolled the dice
But I kept on looking at her face waiting for her to ask me why

“Pen why are you dull hope no problem?”She asked as she lay her soft hand on my chick

“hmmmm Sania!”I called softly as I dropped down the ludo game away from her hands and I held her hands with mine
“Yes, I can hear you “she replied as she held mine in response

“you see, I won’t lie to you,i have this kind of feeling in me for you from the day one I set my eyes on you,Sania I love you so much and I can’t leave you for anybody I repeat anybody” i said with a full seriousness on my face

On hearing this from me,she looked back to check maybe she is the one I’m talking to
“Don’t look back Sanny, I’m in love with you “I repeated it again

On hearing this again she released her hands in shock from mine
“Pen!!!!”She called
“yeeessss”I responded slowly
“Do you realise who you are talking to? “She asked in surprise

“Yes it’s you Sania”I said with a sorry face

“Your best friend? “She said again
“Yes I know that very well”I replied
“I know how you feel for me,but you came at the wrong time Pen,I’ve been expecting this to come from you a long time ago but I’m sorry I have fallen in love with someone else”She said dejectedly
“Are you serious about it Sania”i asked for confirmation
“Yes “she replied
It was here I’m feeling the second sadness,Sania turned me down

On hearing this,i stood up immediately and head for the door knob until I heard my name being called

“Pen!!!”She called and I looked back
“yes”i answered
She came up to me at the entrance and stare at me I the eyes ….
“Are you serious about what you said just now”She asked holding my head
“I’m serious dear”i said looking at her eyeballs

As I said it,Sania immediately moved up to me and gave me the deepest kiss I have ever had ….we both kissed for over five minutes. After that she withdrew her lips and looked into my face….

“I love you Pen”She said smiling
“I love you too baby”i said returning the smile

“The best student for the department of Pharmacy for this year is….. ”

“Penorat!!!!”My friends shouted in whole hall

“It is Penorat- Atkinson”The MC called my name which was followed by a loud music from the DJ as I climb up the stage with my family to collect my award and I went to meet the Vice Chancellor to receive a handshake and a fatherly pat on my back

“Thank you, thank you” the MC said waving hands at the DJ to slow down the volume of the music

“and the best graduating student is… ”
“Penorat Atkinson”the whole audience roared

On seeing this,i stood up and climb up the podium to collect my award only to find Sania sitting beside the Vice Chancellor

Wait is Sania the daughter of the Vice Chancellor or how is that possible* I thought as I received my award

It was an evergreen day for me and my generations to come because I know that I made my mum and dad coupled with my sister very proud

“Now it time to hear a word of advice from the best graduating student” the MC said as he called me up

The was a thunder of applause from the whole hall

“hmm, Good day everyone,i thank the ALMIGHTY GOD for making me where I am today because without him I can’t make it here today all thanks to him and to my family,all I could say that every thing is by the grace of GOD…….. “I said as tears begin to flow from my eyes. Seeing this I saw a figure coming towards me which made me recognize that it was Sania and before I could finish my speech she had given me an long lasting hug…….. I don’t know how the feeling was,it was just a memorable day for me when the whole audience roared with an applause because I felt on top of the world and at least I made my parents happy

Episode 26

“what, you mean Lina?” Sania said with a shock….

“Yes, it is Lina, I know her like how a person know his name,i know her like how a small baby knows his mother, she was the first lady I fell in love with, she was the first lady to capture my heart and soul,…..”I continue narrating as a drop of tear flowed through my eyes

“That’s amazing…”Sania said with a surprise on her face

“Yeah, it is,i love Lina with all my heart then,i gave her everything I have, I tried to please her, but reverse is the case when I discovered that she doesn’t love me in return,Lina made me regretted for falling in love with her, she gave me a wound in my heart that I thought it would never be cured until I met you Sania”I said as I faced Sania with an affectionate eye as I gave a faint smile on my face
“Sorry dear, that’s enough dear, but I never saw you with her before even when she told me that you came to her hostel on that day?”Sania narrated

“Yeah you are right, but I believe that it’s nature that kept us from knowing each other because if you have known me at that time, you will have turned me down”i said letting out a smile as I played her cheek
“that doesn’t mean, I can still break up with you jhur”She said jokingly

“I know you dare not”i said laughing as I moved my lips closer to hers
“It was because you’ve arrested my heart”She said as she reciprocated back with a deep kiss.

Whenever I think about how I have been spending my relationship life I always end it up with a smile because it was when I came across with Sania that I knew the sweetness,the enjoyment and the and the pleasure in love,the feeling was heavenly, but the vengeance mind I had against Lina has been vanishing away from my mind because I think that nemesis has caught up with her because the news had been spreading like a wild fire revealing that she had been sentenced to 25 years imprisonment with her gang ,like a year ago

“My Love don’t you think we should go and check Lina,at least to reconcile with her”Sania said as she showed a sign of compassion
“Ehn, you’re right but…..

Before I could talk,she stopped my lips with a kiss

“What’s that for now?”I said jokingly
“I don’t want you to turn down my request ni”she said smiling

“okay no problem, we will go but that will be later things”i said playing with her hair
“okay dear, thank you very much darling”she said

#$#@:@’:¥£€¥&€£&¥€¢¢¢…&£€¥&_&%¥
After a couple of weeks, I and my wife to be went hand in hand with each other to check Lina in the jail. When we got there,we were told to wait for the person we asked for….

As the figure was approaching me, I nearly unrecognized her, because I received the greatest shock of my life when I found that it was Lina who was really approaching us,i myself was so much down casted because the Lina I knew before is far and far better than the one standing before me

“I’m sorry Pen,I’m so sorry “She said oh kneeling as she cried bitterly

“there is nothing to be sorry about”i said looking away from her eye preventing any tear from my eyes

“Pen, Sania, I’m so sorry please, Forgive me please”She continued begging as her tears became profuse

“but wait, is it true?”Sania asked her
she began to weep
“Yes, it is true, and I really paid for it in a hard way now”She said as she wiped her eye with the back of her face

“Forget about that, life goes on my friend”Sania said urging her as she continue weeping,when I feel moved by her meekness, I have no choice than to hold up her hands and hug her friendly

“Pen, I’m so sorry for hurting you, I loose a precious thing, you loved me but I loved money more than you, I know I can’t take you back to me but remember me for good”She said holding my hands very tight

“hello Mr Man, your time is up please,come and have your leave”the warder came to lead us away and took Lina away,but as he was taking Lina,she ran back to where I was and gave me a hot kiss which ran through my body
“Please Forgive me Pen I will ever love you”She said as she cried rushing back to the warder

“(I faced Sania) can you see what I was saying?” I said as I stylishly raised My wife up from the seat

“well, I thank GOD that I have gotten a person of my heart”i said as I kissed Sania in front of all the officers
“And I’m lucky to find a man who has gotten everything I want”Sania said as she reciprocated back with a deep kiss on my lips………..
