After dropping kemi’s call, I was confused on how to
bail myself from the web I just entered. I had just
lied and now, the lies were hunting me. I thought
through and couldn’t get a possible way out. I
decided to involve segun the event planner himself
ME: sege, how you dey?
SEGE: oko bimpe, oko kemi, I dey oo
ME: you no well ni
SEGE: how far?, you don call your wife?
ME: that was what I wanted to discuss with you sef

ME: I called her to informed her that my boss told
me to come to work tomorrow bla..bla..bla……
SEGE: wetin come happen?
ME: she told me that she would come to meet me at
my work place.
SEGE: heeeeeeeeee, smart counter move
ME: she said we would go out for the shopping from

would collect the money and the gift you bought for
ME: tell me jor, what should I do next?
SEGE: can’t you think on your own?
ME: I couldn’t figure out any idea jor
SEGE: you no well ni.
ME: so what next?.
SEGE: ok, let me give you few ideas, then you would
pick anyone out of them.
ME: ok, I’m all ears.
SEGE: first one, call her tomorrow morning, and

ME: hmmmmm, nice one. Any other idea?
SEGE: here is another one. Don’t call her at all

till she calls you herself and then tell her that you
were robbed and your phone was stolen.
ME: hmm mr sege!!!!!
SEGE: and here is another one. When its tomorrow

work. And call her 2 hours later to inform her that
you are travelling with your boss to somewhere to
inspect a project and you don’t know when you would
ME: this your small head, na so so bad things full
SEGE: that’s why I am referred to as the event
Segun and I had some moments of chats before we
end it at 9:30pm.
I then sat on my bed thinking of the one to follow
one of segun’s game plans.
After thinking for several minutes, I decided to go with
segun’s third plan.
I faced the mirror before I slept and tried doing some
rehearsals on how I would talk to kemi. I woke up very
early the second day which was saturday. I prepared
little breakfast, did a little exercise until 8am when I
decided to place a call to kemi. Suddenly, I began to
fear. I don’t know where the fear came from, I just
observed that I couldn’t gather the courage to lie to
Then I decided to call segun and inform him about my
predicament. He suggested that I should come over to
his place. “Who knows?, kemi might decide to find me
to my house since she already knew the place”. I
agreed with segun, I dressed up and went to meet him
On getting to segun’s house. We had few gist, then he
gave me some courage, cheers and some scripts to
make the call.
ME: hello baby,
KEMI: hi love
ME: I’m on my way to work
KEMI: ok dear, what time should I come to meet you at
ME: hmmmm. Let me get to work first and see the
situation of things, then I will call you
KEMI: no problem. Better still, text the address of your
workplace to me incase your number becomes
ME: ***oloshi**** ok dear, I will text it to you when I
dropped from the cab
KEMI: ok dear. Thanks for yesterday
ME: what did I do yesterday?
KEMI: the airtime you gave me.
ME: ***i thought as much, kemi would never
appreciate it if it were to be 100 or 200naira
denomination***, you are welcome dear.
KEMI: ***laughs**, you know our elders says if you
appreciate what you were given yesterday, you would
get another one today.
ME: ****laughed***, you are funny
KEMI: so I’m expecting what the elders said we should
ME: I hear. Talk to you later
KEMI: ok dear, bye
ME: bye dear ***hanged up***
