After taking my bath, I settled down in bed,
planning to sleep until I Toun and Abayomi
arrived. I want to discover Abuja with them. My
phone rang as I was closing my eyes. It is funny
how your ring-tone sounds louder when you
want to sleep. It was Timi.
Timi: I am infront of your house
Me: told you I was in Lokoja
Timi: how can you be in Lokoja when I saw you
in the party, danced with you…held you..?
Me: Timi stop..
Timi: where are you?
Timi: what are you doing in Abuja?
Me: why asking me all these questions?
Timi: because I care
Me: I am in Abuja and I am good, Toun and
Abayomi will join me soon.
Timi: what is happening there?
Me: came with a friend
Timi: guy or girl?
Timi was silent for a while, after some seconds,
he regained his composure.
Timi: when will you be back?
Me: too many questions Timileyin.
Timi: I need to see you so I can tell you
Me: I am really not interested anymore.
Timi: what changed?
Me: I grew up
Timi: I love you Tana Dike.
It had been a while I heard those words from
him. I still felt some butterflies
Me: very funny..
Timi: what is funny?
I hung up.
I was closing my eyes again when my phone
rang again, I cursed under quietly before I
realized it was Toun.
Me: babes howfar?
Toun: we got an Aero flight for 11am, cheaper
Me: that’s nice.
Toun: text me your location
Me: will do that Asap
Toun: I have gist for you as soon as I arrive.
Me: brief me na, abi you want me to be thinking
about different scenarios?
Toun: Kofo is pregnant
Me: for who?
Toun: well that’s the gist…….see you soon
The intercom in my room rang, the receptionist
had called to tell me that some people were
asking after me. While Toun was standing
infront of the receptionist, Abayomi sat down
with a gloomy face. I wondered if it had
anything to do with ‘the gist’
Me: why are you looking sad Abayomi?
Abayomi: isn’t it your friend? How can she just
decide that we have to be in Abuja just because
you are here. I don’t have any friends here, and
she insisted I came along.
Me: Awww, I didn’t expect you guys to come
anyways, since I had planned to return ASAP. It
was my highness that made me tell Jafar I
wanted to go to Abuja.
Abayomi: That guy dey crase sha!
Toun: where is Jafar? We should thank him for
the room na
Me: I don’t knw where he is, why don’t you
guys go to your room and relax abit, I am sure
you will have enough time to thank him.
I escorted them to their room, it was directly
opposite mine, with the same style and
I was watching a musical video on trace when
Toun walked into my room and stretched
herself beside me.
Toun: so how was your trip?
Me: long and I slept almost all through
Toun: do you know I have never been to Abuja
Me: me too, quit this boring talk and tell me
about Kofo’s pregnancy
Toun: hmmmm, it was at the party I found out
Toun: I was outside when Gabriel, that guy with
bow-legs came to gist with Abayomi. Before
long they started talking about elections and
Kofo’s name came up. He told me it was a
smart move by Abayomi to make Timi the
campaign manager, that National and Kofo had
private paroles. I feigned surprise, so he
continued. He said Kofo was pregnant but she
hadn’t told National yet. I asked him how he
knew; he said kofo told Isioma, who in turn told
his girlfriend. You know Gabriel liked me those
days na, so I manipulated his brain on if he
thinks National was responsible. He said there
are gossips that it might be Uche or National’s.
Me: Are you worried that it might be Abayomi’s?
Toun: not at all, I am sure Abayomi used
condom with her.
Me: you really do trust him?
Toun: I know my devil..
Me: why can’t she just abort it?
Toun: Gabriel said Best-care hospital had
warned her never to come for abortion again.
Apparently, she was a frequent visitor.
Me: and she still get mind to dey fucck prick
like that for party?
Toun: she likes presidential rods..
We both laughed, but at the back of my mind, I
prayed it wasn’t Abayomi’s.
Toun: seems Jafar likes you very much
Me: that is where it will end na, you know I
can’t have anything to do with a cultist
Toun: no be you say na Confra?
Me: Toun, I really can’t do guys right now, plus
maybe he is just being nice as we are his
Toun: if I wasn’t dating Abayomi, Jafar would
have been perfect for me.
Me: you can break up with Abayomi and join
the band-wagon of Jafar’s girls.
Toun: it will just be for s*x, you don’t fall inlove
with the kinds of Jafar, or you will run mad. The
attraction should be enough. Abayomi and I are
in this ish for the long haul babe.
Me: yeah, I know, I envy you guys..
Toun: spoken to Timi?
Me: yes briefly..
Me: nothing dear
Toun: ok, don’t worry, you will find the perfect
guy. That Naetochukwu guy in Business Admin
is still dying for you, you should call him one of
Me: he is cool but he is too proud, it pisses me
Toun: just call him…a simple call to tell him you
are just checking up on him. Lets see what
happens from there.
Me: I hear you..
Toun: and if you are Hot, I can share Abayomi
with you, you know I love u dat much
Me: yuck!…you are a fool..
We both laughed, after sometime, she stood up
to leave, as I escorted her to the door, she
kissed me on the lips. She was so carefree
about it but I seem to have felt her tongue. I
brushed it away and decided that calling
Naetochukwu wouldn’t be a bad idea..
