I waited for her to speak.

“I ran away,” she finally said.

What? I asked in my mind but kept quiet. I took a

little sip from the glass of wine. Being impatient,

I asked, “Why dear? What happened?”

She has stopped crying. I guess she has now

found the courage to talk to me. Perhaps my

status has changed from that of a complete

stranger to a friend.

“My parents…” She said. Her voice was cracking.

I was bracing myself for the worst. Oh my God!

An accident?

Her voice interrupted my thoughts, “They are

forcing me to marry someone that I detest,” she

said as new tears began to fall down.

I was quite surprised by what she said. I was

now deeply concerned for her. “Why will they do

that my dear? And who is the guy?” Too much

questions but I can’t help myself.

“He is a policeman. My parents made some kind

of arrangement that I don’t know about in the

past with his parents.”

“I hate policemen,” I said.

“Exactly. The guy is such a nice guy. So boring

with a big potbelly and he snores. I can’t live

with that kind of person for the rest of my life,”

she said, still in tears.

“Calm down my dear. You won’t. I totally agree

with you. Your parents have no reason to force

you to marry someone you detest. You are the

one that will endure it all, not them. Don’t over-

think it dear, everything will eventually fall into

place,” I assured her. She nodded.

“What made you to come here? Do you know

anyone here before?”

“Yes. When I was a child, I used to come here

for vacation with my parents. I love Lagos, the

food and I have made quite a lot of friends here

as well,” She said as a smile appeared back on

her face.

That explains it then. We slide back into a

normal conversation. The more we talk, the more

I stare at her. I just love the way she smiles,

how lovely she looks. She is so passionate; so

alluring. We set another date to meet up at a

night club in Lekki the next day. When I went

back to my apartment in Lekki, I couldn’t stop

thinking about her and now I think I’m beginning

to develop this feeling for her….and…I am just

confused. The whole thing made me feel so

vulnerable. I am used to being in control but now

I have this conflict of emotions that made me

feel like am losing it. Samantha…. Should I

believe that meeting her was the best decision

of my life? Or that this is something that I going

to very much regret?
