“She lied?” Both asked and Timothy asked. I called both

of them over to my place the next day. It was a

Saturday Morning and the sun has just started


“Not really. If I were in her shoes, I can’t just

begin to open up to someone I was just meeting

for the first time,”

“Don’t paint it Chris,” said Timothy.

“You can’t trust girls these days. Even my girl

does that. She tells me one thing today, she tells

me another thing tomorrow,” Moses said as he

made a motion with his hand.

“Moses, you mean that your on and off

girlfriend?” asked Timothy.

“We do have issues now and then. Sometimes

she can be a complaining b---h, but kai, she is

still special to me.” Moses said

I was just looking at them. We are all sitting

down in the sitting room. I prepared tea and soon

we began to eat tea and bread. Timothy faced

me and said, “Chris you didn’t ask Samantha why

she lied the first time?”

This guy is a pain in the ass.

“Please I don’t want to discuss about my

relationship.” The words just flew out of my

mouth before I realized what I just said.

“Your relationship!” Both of them exclaimed. I

kept quiet as I gave them the James Bond stare.

“Wonders shall never end,” said Moses as he

laughed so loud. “A girl you just met few days

ago, you are already talking about relationship.”

“But guy, you are 30. At this age, we shouldn’t

be talking about relationship. How many

relationships have you had since you were 18?

More than five. We should be talking about

marriage. If you see the right girl for you, you

should go ahead and marry her,” said Timothy.

“Tim, you have a point,” I said.

The whole thing just made me begin to think

about Samantha; her openness, her simplicity,

her smile. Everything about her just makes me

feel like she is the….

“Talking about marriage, I just feel it was

designed to keep a man down. You will just be

tied down to one woman only. No more fun. No

one adventure,” Moses interjected as he

interrupted me in my thoughts.

I gave Moses a hard stare.

“What do you think Tim?” Moses asked.

“I think a man changes immediately he gets

married. Marriage doesn’t just work well for

some men. Go round this vicinity and see what

marriage have done to some guys. If they tell

you how they were doing before they got

married, you won’t believe it,” said Timothy.

All eyes were on me to say my mind.

“I think marriage can either be the worst thing

that can happen to a man or the best thing that

can happen to him. If a man is lucky and he

finds the right woman, when he is financially and

psychologically ready for marriage, he can go

ahead and marry. It will be the best thing that

will happen to him.” I said.

“Hmmm,” said Moses.

I gave him the ‘What?’ Look.

“Chris, about Samantha. Is it love or lust? Is she

the one?” Timothy asked as they both looked at


That’s the one billion naira question. I have been

trying to sort out my feelings since last night.

After making mistake with five girls, I don’t want

this one to be something I will regret. I have

always rushed into relationships and ended up

either breaking hearts or got my heart broken. I

have to take it slow and follow my heart and see

where it leads me. I have this feeling deep inside

me that I have finally seen the girl that I have

been searching for.

I kept the thought to myself.

“It’s definitely not lust. This one, I am certain.

She is not one of those girls that you see and

you want to rush for a one night stand. She…is…

different.” I said.

They all kept quiet.

We discussed football, played Connect by Phyno

and talked about the Nigerian music industry.

They later left in around 12 in the afternoon.

Moses wanted to do some cleaning at his house

and Tim wanted to go to market. This rest of the

day was like a blur. Time moved so slow and

finally grinded to a halt.

It’s finally 6:30 and I am meeting with Samantha

by 7. I dressed up in white polo and blue jeans

and tied up the laces of my white canvas. I

entered my Bentley and pushed through the busy


I like Lekki better at night. It was a cacophony

of beautiful people, cozy hotels, restaurants and

flooding street lights. As I drove, I could hear

Skelewu song in the background. I saw some

couples lingering around the sidewalks, children

playing around and guys hanging around with

their girls around the joints.

Soon I reached my destination. I parked my car

outside and began to approach the entrance of

Club Vegas.
