Common Mistakes Ladies Make in a Relationship…….Episode 11
I blocked my slightly opened door with my body, which prevented him from walking into my room, just like he did the previous day. However he never showed any surprise, but instead continued to smile sweetly…….
“How was your night, i came as soon as i woke up, because i want your face to be the first thing i will see this morning” he said, while i smiled,
“Thanks i’m very fine, but you also woke me from sleep” i complained as i rubbed my eyes…….
“I’m so sorry dear, will you be going out today?” he asked,
“Yea i will and why do you ask?” i replied,
“I just want to spend some time with you” he explained, while i shruggled, “well that will be another day” i answered………
Instead of leaving, he still stood and watched me, while i returned his gaze without knowing what else to say to him,
“You are really so beautiful dear, and i will do anything just to win your heart” he said sweetly and fluently, while i smiled,
“Thanks sha, but you need not bother because you won’t succeed, moreover i already have a guy” i replied calmly, which made him to smile,
“You mean him?” he asked, as he pointed towards Samuel’s room……..
“Please i’m yet to brush nor clean up, lets talk later” i heard myself say to him, but just that moment Mariam appeared from nowhere and stood beside him, with a smile,
“Baby good morning, i’m so sorry i was unable to show up yesterday, abeg shift make i enter nah” she said playfully, while my legs shook, as my heart leaped, because Samuel was in my room, probably still in my bed, a situation i really didn’t want her to witness, because i really haven’t told her much about Samuel, and she might misinterpret the whole thing…….
“Baby give way nah, make i enter” she said again, while i hesitantly opened my door a little wider, in order for her to enter,
“David thanks for checking up on me, we will continue our discussion some other time” I said to David with a sweet smile, as i closed my door………
With a fast beating heart, i turned and faced my room, but surprisingly i saw Samuel seated at the edge of my bed, well composed and engrossed in his mobile phone which he was playing with. I breathed deeply (What a sharp guy)…….
Yet Mariam still smiled and eyed me suspiciously, as she turned to face me again……
“We will chat later since your friend is already here” i heard Sam say nervously, as he stood up and left, while i smiled as i locked my door before facing Mariam again, who still continued to look at me suspiciously…….
“I just noticed many things” she said to me with a smile,
“Things like what?” i asked, but she just shruggled……
“Dear friend, hope you are not planning to keep this away from me?” she asked with a little laugh,
“Hope you are not planning to deny that you just slept with Samuel?” she seriously asked me, while i gasped…….
“No, i didn’t ooo” i seriously replied as i fell on my bed, and clutched my teddy bear with a smile,
“sharrap you liar” i heard Mariama say with a smile,
“Didn’t Samuel sleep here last night?” she asked seriously, as if she already was aware he did, while i wondered whether she really knew, or was just trying to play with my intelligence……
I breathed deeply and stared at her,
“Yes he did, but nothing ensued between us” i replied, while her face lit up momentarily with bright eyes, which soon died away as she stared at me again in surprise,
“Huh what did you just say?? Do you mean you two didn’t??” she asked, while i seriously nodded to her,
“Yea we didn’t do anything, he is a complete gentleman” i said with a smile……
“Abeg go jare, you wan tell mesay two of una sleep on top the same bed and nothing happened?” she asked in a surprise look an a naughty smile,
“Comot there, you chukuchuku girl, you too like bad thing, do you thing everybody behaves like you, thank God you no be man tufiakwa! things for happen well for your head” i said to her, while she laughed out loud……
“I was on my way coming, when i saw you both sneaking into your room last night so i just turned and returned to my room, but i came here this early, in order to confirm whether he actually slept here” she explained,
“Infact you are jobless” i said to her with a smile…….
“So what’s up with you and David?” she enquired, while i shruggled,
“I don’t know what is wrong with that boy, he just started showing interest in me” i replied with a yawn,
“Please be careful with that wolf ooo, don’t mind his innocent face, he is very dangerous” she advised me……
We chatted all through that morning happily, and we really had a great time, because Mariam never lacks topics and so we ate together, gisted and joked till noon, when she left for her room……..
I immediately freshened up as soon as she left, before calling Samuel on phone, in order to know where he was,
“I went to see my uncle, i will be back shortly” he replied,
“Abeg buy something when returning, including Christian love movies oo” i begged,
“Ok madam i will” he replied, while i smiled……
I had barely ended the phone call when i heard someone knock on my door, i immediately knew it was David which really made my body temperature rise a bit. I breathed deeply and reached for my door, which i quietly opened, while he stood at the doorway with his usual decieving smile………
“May i come in?” he politely asked, while i nodded, opened my door wider and made way for him to enter my room, which he did with a confident smile on his face.
David calmly entered my room with a confident smile on his face. I left my door opened, and drew down my curtain, which then stood in its place, because i really didn’t want to lock myself inside my room with him.
“You are looking very lovely” he said with a smile as he sat on my bed. I sat on a plastic chair and forced out a smile,
“Thanks ooo my God is alive” i replied…….
“So what plans do you have for the rest of the day?” he asked,
“I don’t understand your question” i replied as i gave him a curious look,
“How do you plan to spend the rest of the day?” he asked,
“Oops now i understand, anyway i have no plans other than to read my books, sleep and eat” i replied a bit coldly,
“Hmmm it’s okay sha” he muttered……..
We stayed in silence for a while, which really was one of my boring moments that particular day. I sat uneasily on my chair and browsed with my phone, as i equally prayed for Mariam to show up and rescue me……
“Globacom is hosting a show this evening in school, will you like to attend?” he later asked. I looked up in surprise and shook my head,
“Really!, how come i didn’t hear about it” i muttered to myself loudly…..
“So will you like to attend?, i heard Tuface, Wizkid and other musicians will be coming?” he asked anxiously, but i just bit my lips and looked away,
“No i don’t think i will go” i replied, even though i secretly was dying to attend such a show, but then i really couldn’t accept to go out with such a boy, whom i knew was all out to impress me, till he gets whatever he had in mind, moreover attending such a show with him, might end up into another thing which i equally was very scared to think of…..
“What are you thinking” he asked, stood up and drew close to me, while i immediately composed myself and smiled,
“Nothing i’m fine” i replied, but he squatted by my side and held my hands,
“i know you don’t trust me, i can see it in your eyes, but no matter the opinion you may have about me, just know that i’m also human, who deserves to be shown love and respect which you are not even showing to me” he said as he stared into my eyes……
“what do you mean?” i heard myself ask, but he laughed,
“i can read your eyes, you despise me because you know i belong to a secret cult, but dear if you should hear my story, you won’t really blame me at all” he said calmly.
“I’m already in love with you which i can’t help, please just take me as a friend. It hurts me very much whenever you treat me like dirt, just like you did this morning, please don’t look at my outside nature, but look inside me, and decide for yourself, whether i’m that bad” he added, while his face changed as if he wanted to cry……..
I really was touched, but all i could do was just to look away and stand up,
“I have heard you, but it won’t change anything, we will continue to be friends and nothing more, just as you asked for” i replied………
“It’s okay by me, a journey of a thousand miles begins with a step” i heard him say as he stood up,
“What do you mean” i asked in surprise, but he just laughed,
“Don’t mind me dear, it’s really nothing” he replied,
“But i have one more request” he added, while i turned and faced him,
“What is it?” i asked.
“Please i need just a friendly hug from you, to mark our friendship, then i will leave” he begged, while i bit my lips and looked away,
“Common what’s so hard in it?, a friendly hug won’t do you anything” he begged…..
I shruggled as i breathed deeply, hesitantly drew close and hugged him, while he tightly held me a bit longer than i had in mind……….
Unluckily Samuel banged in that very moment…………..
