A Story written by Chekwube Emmanuel…
When he got to his room, he looked at the money again before he dropped it on his table. “What in God’s name have I gotten myself into?” He asked himself. “Look at such a God sent I have lost. No! No! I have not lost her, I will go back to her hostel and talk to her”, he said to himself. But how can I face that witch in her room now, she looks like someone that will pour hot water on me if she sets her eyes on me again. But what did I even do?” He asked himself. “It should better not be that this girl saw me talking with Jenny o. Hmmmm! Na der wahala go dey o”.As he was still with his thoughts, he heard a knock on his door.
“Who is there?” He asked
“Abeg come open door jare”, Uche answered from outside.
He sighed and went to open the door.
“O boy how far na?” he greeted Uche.
“I dey my man”, Uche answered entering inside.
“This one wey your face dey like this kilonshele?” Uche asked.
“Mtcheeww!!, O boy I don Bleep up big time, as in big time” he answered.
“Wetin happen, you give girl belle?” He asked looking straight at KC.
“Uche I don Bleep up” he repeated.
“Wetin happen na, you dey dey tell me say you don Bleep up” he said.
“Guy Vivy broke up with me this afternoon o.”
“Abeg that one na joke abi na the brother?” Uche asked.
“A dey serious,” he answered.
“Wetin happen?” Uche asked.
” I don’t know o. For sometimes now she’s been strange. So on how I come meet her today say make me and am follow talk. As we dey talk she say make I escort her go bank o. On how we reach bank she just withdraw 65k give me come tell me that it’s over,” he narrated.
“Are you sure that you didn’t do anything ?” Uche asked.
“Well I don’t know if this is the reason o. Three days ago I was with Jenny in front of her hostel. We were arguing about something. I don’t know whether she saw us or overheard what we were talking about”
.”You and this Jenny, shebi I have asked you to leave that girl for good but you no wan hear. See what she has caused you now. See better girl wey God package carry do christmas for you, you leave her go dey follow that good for nothing girl wey wan chop you dry. Oya e don happen na make Jenny come dey do wetin Vivy dey do for you na. Thank God say she break up with you self, make person wey know her worth go carry her. Infact self I don dey go”, Uche stood up and left annoyingly.
“So you are still crying over this guy ee? Obi asked looking at Vivy pitifully.
Vivy looked up at her and said nothing.
“See let me tell you, guys of this days are not worth loving not to talk of crying over. You are killing yourself here and he is busy catching fun somewhere else. So it’s better you clean your eyes, forget him and move on with your life. After all he is not worth the tears”
“But I love him” Vivy said crying the more.
“Love ko, love ni. What has the love done for you”? Obi asked coming around to sit with her. “I have told you times without counting that that guy is a loser, he is not worth making you feel like this.”
“What did I do to him to deserve this?” Vivy asked.
“Let me tell you the truth dear, he hurt you because he doesn’t know your worth. He doesn’t deserve you, you deserve better, much more better than him” Obi said consoling her.
“I did everything I could for him, why did he ………………….” A knock came interrupting her before she could finish what she was saying.
“Please tell him that am not around” Vivy pleaded with Obi.
“Who is him”? Obi asked her, do you mean KC? She continued.
“Yes” she replied.
“No way, he dare not try me” Obi said to herself as she drew a half filled bucket of water from under her bed and made straight to the door. With his back turned to the door as he was reading something pasted on the opposite door, before he could turn around, Obi have emptied the bucket of water all over him.
“Like seriously did they tell you I didn’t take ma bath before coming” he asked the dumbfounded Obi who just stood shocked and couldn’t say anything.
