Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 16
“i like Benjamin very much, but i’m scared of making another mistake” i confessed to Amara, on our way back to our hostel from school the following day, while she just smiled,
“sometimes i don’t understand you” i heard her say, which made me to stare at her in surprise,
“what do you mean?” i asked,
“nothing oo jare” she replied, which only made me more curious to know what she had in mind,
“nawa for you, tell me what you have in mind nah?” i insisted, and she stared at me for a while, with a very serious look on her face,
“your problem with Mike happened last year, what i don’t understand is why you are still mourning him, and equally punishing yourself till now” she said, which really shocked me immensely……..
“who told you i’m still mourning mike or punishing myself?” i asked seriously,
“isn’t it obvious that you are, it’s been months since you last had a guy in your life, which kind of punishment is more than that?” she fired back,
“abeg oo it’s no punishment to me, i’m single and happy” i replied with a smile, while she laughed for a while…….
“comot there jare! pretender, don’t tell me that cra.p again jor” she said with laughter, while i eyed her…….
One thing i really do love about my friend Amara, is her honest and blunt nature, and she never hid her feelings from me, even for a single day, though sometimes she may be annoying,
“if you like, continue to play hide and seek with that poor boy’s feelings, i have nothing else to tell you again” she added, while i slapped her shoulder,
“madam it’s okay nah” i said to her……..
Falling in love for the second time isn’t that easy, especially when you have been so terribly dealt with, the first time, but then love is an inevitable force of attraction which do come to every human being, and when it comes, carries your whole body, soul and even sense of reasoning with it………
Truly i was so scared of being hurt again, cos i knew i barely managed to survive my first heart break, which really wasn’t easy for me and seriously i equally didn’t know how my friends, especially Amara were able to jump from one relationship to another without any emotional break down,
“how i wish i could just be like them” i had often said countless times, but then i really couldn’t be like them, because we are not the same…….
We soon got to our hostel, where Amara gave me a sweet smile before going to her own room, which she shared with her boyfriend
“take care, i will come to your room later” she said as she smiled……..
As i unlocked my door, Benjamin came out from his own room, with a sweet smile on his face,
“finally you are back, i have been lonely all day” he said as he came towards me, while i stared at him with a smile, and i felt like hugging him that moment, as my body yearned for his arms around me, but i kept myself in check, and swallowed my wishes, because i equally knew he had no morale to hug me in that manner in a hostel corridor,
But surprisinly he drew close and hugged me, which really drew out dimples from my face,
“i couldn’t sleep last night because i was thinking about us” i equally heard him whisper……
“Hmmm love is full of surprises”….
