Must Read: The Devil Who Loved Me

4 years ago

Aisha stayed in a four bedroom apartment that
she shared with her friends. Outside the
apartment, the smell of Marijuana was
competing with oxygen. Music of MoHITS, the
rave of the moment was blasting with gyration.

Cuz I want to dance with you pere…..

Omo ma lo rope mo kere……

If your boyfriend come mi ma mere….

Abayomi and Chukwudi saw people that knew
them outside, so they left us to our whims. Like
decent people that girls were and men will
never be, we looked for Aisha to tell her happy
birthday. Girls were already grinding their male
counterparts to the sweet voice of Wande Cole.
I finally sighted Aisha..
Aisha: babes howfar, you guys made it..
We went for a hug. She was wearing what we
called a micro-mini . her boyfriend, a student of
Uni-LAG that spent most of his time in Ago..was
hanging around her like a fly to poo. As food
was one of my Forte, I left Toun and Aisha to
continue with their small talks, whilke I went to
look for edibles. I saw a tray of fried chiken in
her kitchen . I picked a piece and wanted to
munch it when I saw his familiar sweet face. He
was sitting with a group of people arguing
about Atiku’s chances in the election as a
candidate for ACN. He must have seen me
because he stood up abruptly and walked up to
me.
Timi: you are looking hot
Me: you are not looking bad yourself..


He handed me a cup of ponch. If it were
another guy, I would have rejected it, but it was
Timi..my Timi.
Timi: where is Toun and Abayomi?
Me: Toun is with Aisha, Abayomi is with
Chukwudi..
Timi: you are with me
The fine boy was flirting with me..
Me: yes I am with you
Timi: come let’s dance..

He led me to the dancing area, the Dj changed
the song to P-square’s “Do Me”. Timi didn’t
waste time in spinning me around so that my
shaking bum was against his jerking waist. His
right hand was on my waist, ..he leaned to my
ears and spoke:
Timi: are you seeing anyone?
Me: no…why?
Timi: I want you back, nkem
Me: like that?, I must look cheap.
Believe me, what my mouth was saying and
what my waist was doing was different. I liked
this boy too much.


Timi: no boo, I am crazy about you…I know you
like me too..
Proud ..
Me: yes I like you, but I must know what
happened the first time. Why you left me. I
begged you like a slave, I almost ran mad. You
didn’t blink. What did I do to you Timileyin?
I turned and faced him, looked at him and I
swear I saw pain. My hand went around his
shoulder as we danced along. That was when I
saw the dark figure sitting down. If what I saw
in Timi’s eyes was pain, what I saw in the dark
figure’s eyes was unreadable.
Jafar’s eyes were blank as Timi held my waist to
“ Lori le o di Gobe”.


Two girls were in other sides of him. They had
red cups of what I suspected was ponch. Jafar
didn’t seem to be drinking. I removed my eyes
from his darkness and concentrated on Timi…or
tried to concentrate.
Timi: we would talk about it tonight
Me: I will be glad
Timi: I hope you understand though
Me: why didn’t you explain to me while you
were still with Annie?
Timi: when I explain, you would understand
I just quiet and allowed myself enjoy the song.
When I stole a glance at Jafar, he was gone,
although his space was maintained as the girls
sat in the opposite sides of his absence.



The house was filled to the brim, twas like
everybody turned up. I saw one of Jafar’s goon
just a distance away, the one that led the
assault on Acho. He was there to protect me, I
felt protected as he smoked his cigarette and
his eyes never left me.


Toun and Abayomi entered the house and
started dancing immediately. You could see
that they were crazy about each-other. As we
both danced, I felt this was how it was
supposed to be. I felt alive.
When Annie walked in with her p**sycat dolls, I
felt a bit awkward, Timi didn’t see her but I did.


She looked at me too, instead of the frown I
expected, she smiled.


I had to take a breather so I went back to the
kichen to eat another chiken. Toun followed me
and the aproko in her was just annoying.
Toun: you and Timi back?
Me: no jor..


Toun: the way you were giving it to that poor
boy, him J0yst!ck go don dey pain am. You guys
ought to straff o…just for old times’ sake
Me: you no get sense.


Toun: this chiken is the truth.


We munched and gisted about what the girls
were wearing when we heard a sound that you
shouldn’t hear in a party. The kitchen had a
small store that was slightly opened. Toun went
to peep, then came back smiling, she beckoned
on me to join her in peeking. Though it was
dark, we could see the girl holding the drum of
water with bum shot backwards with the guy
ramming her like his life depended on it.


National’s eyes were closed as he grabbed the
bum he fuccked. Kofo’s m0an was getting
louder as she seemed to be cuming . I
underrated the size of the girl’s ikebe o..it
swallowed National’s J0yst!ck without preamble.
Toun and I ran like little kids to look for Abayomi
so we can tell him about what we saw, as we
ran we passed people drinking, some people
smooching themselves at the doorway, we
hadn’t searched for long when I saw
something. Something I wished I never saw. I
saw Timi talking to Annie at such close
proximity, that any movement would have seen
them enter each-other. He looked so embroiled
in the discussion that he didn’t see me. But
Annie saw me; she kissed him and held him
tight. He held her too. I kept walking, I didn’t
want Toun to see them. I didn’t want the pity.
Abayomi and Chukwudi were talking when Toun
interrupted and whispered in his ears. I tried to
act like I was still elated, but I wasn’t anymore.
I just wanted to drown. For the second time,
Timi was breaking my heart.
