“What do u want!!!”,I fired at him, with rage from the disgrace I just faced not minding the prying eyes of onlooking students.
I just couldn’t believe my ears, what did he take me for?? That I couldn’t beat him in book stuffs?, rather than making a move, I just stood there, frozen like a statue.
“I was wondering if we could meet, and talk over a bottle of drinks, no strings attached” he continued.
LATER @ MY HOSTEL.
“i just cant understand WHY you chose to disgrace that handsome young dude who meant no harm by asking you over to have a couple of drinks with him”, ANITA barked.
Anita was my room mate who was in the same department as I. She had always been against my rudeness towards boys, with a mentality that “it may come back and bite me in the blow”..
“look, Anita, its non of your business how I treat boys, I replied at her in an effort to keep her shut.
“but cant u see, you cant continue treating boys this way because of your past experience, that u have decided to keep to yourself. its just not fair”, she added.
“please Anita, i have had enough embarrassment for one day, let me be”, I begged of you, with hopes on getting her shut up.
“finally, some alone time to myself”, I thought, as I fell on the bed..my mind quickly raced back to what Anita had said. Maybe it was time to face reality, or probably face the world. I shouldn’t avenge the sin of one person on the head of another innocent person.. Like she said ‘they are still humans”. Maybe I should loosen up to the real deal, maybe I should cut them some slack…. *sobbing*
Visible tears had already started trickling down my cheeks as i continued in thoughts.
To be continued…
Sorry for delaying, am a lazy writer. lolz
Still waiting….. Getting more interesting
I had barely settled in my thoughts when my phone rang bringing me back to reality. I lazily picked the phone and answered it without even bothering to check who was calling.
“jeez, I cant believe I totally forgot about the party” I said, ” I don’t think I can still make it, because am not feeling quite well”.
Tolu was my best friend, although, one thing I hated in her was the way she teased and played pranks with people,mockinq them intentionally.
“am just kidding” came her reply as she continued, ” common na babe, you had promised you would be present at the party and don’t promise and fail now o”, She begged.
” That’s my girl, and don’t forget to bring your boyfriend o” tolu said again teasingly.
Seriously, that girl had gone nuts, she wasn’t ignorant of how I felt about boys but she always had a joke to play, mocking me every bit.
“what kind I joke is that?” I asked, feigning anger, “you better stop it o, I don’t like it, in fact am not coming to that party again”, I responded trying to draw out pity, but it even increased my situation as she teased me the more.
Honestly, that girls tongue really needed spanking at that moment.
“it seems u have credit to burn this afternoon bah?” I asked, as Tolu continued in her infectious laughter. I hissed as I cut the call.
