Segun and I laughed out loud and started talking about
kemi. Segun said she is very smart and would earn
more magas with her brain. We stopped gisting after a
while then we switched to segun’s laptop, he brought
out his game pads and we played winning eleven. We
were so carried away with the game that we forgot
At 12pm, my phone began to ring, I looked at the
screen and it was kemi. It was then that I remembered
about her. I was scared to pick up because I don’t
have the nerves to fabricate lies to her. My badman
event planner geared me up again and did a fast mini
rehearsals with me for the last time. After 4 missed
calls, I called kemi back myself.
ME: hi love, I saw your missed calls
KEMI: why aren’t you picking up?
ME: I was with my boss when you called. And you
know it would be embarrassing if I should pick calls in
KEMI: ok dear, should I start coming
SEGE: *****throwing up his hands as a sign telling to
ME: eeeerm kemi, my boss wanted me to follow him to
inspect a project, that was why he told me to come
KEMI: ok, let me come before you guys leave for the
ME: we are already on our way to his car, infact, his
car is about 6 feet from here.
KEMI: so what will happen now?
ME: we won’t stay long. I’m sure we can exceed an
hour. When I’m coming back, I will call you.
KEMI: ok dear. I love you so much
ME: I love you too. Bye ***hanged up***.
After the call, I dropped my phone and looked at segun.
SEGE: *****shake hands with me*****, that’s my boy,
ME: hmmmmmm, I hope it works sha
SEGE: mr maga leave story. If you aren’t too smart for
these girls, they would send you back to the village
when they are through with you.
ME: hmmmmmmm, let’s continue our winning eleven
and let me beat you one more time.
SEGE: oloshi, na only that one you sabi
Segun and I continued with the game, when I was
getting hungry, I picked some noodles in his cupboard
and help myself with the cooking. The friendship
between segun and I was more like brothers. We are
always free at each others house. Infact, I do see
segun’s house as my second home and vice versa.
I was eating my noodles and segun was playing game
alone on his own when kemi called again. I looked at
the wall clock and the time was 2pm.
KEMI: hi dear, please call me back
KEMI: ****hanged up****
I dropped the phone from my ear and face segun.
ME: “Shoooooo!, segun see me see wahala oooo”
SEGE: wetin happen?
ME: imagine kemi telling me to call back after
receiving 400naira airtime yesterday?
SEGE: sebi na you start am from onset
ME: how? ***raised eye brow****
SEGE: me as I dey so, if I send 100naira card to any
girl and if she doesn’t call me with atleast 50naira
worth of airtime before requesting another one, I will
never send another card.
SEGE: but if na you, one “yeye” girl go call you to send
card, she no go use atleast half of the card to call you,
and she go request for another one. And you would
send it again. So what do you expect?
ME: you are right sha.
SEGE: call her na. Let’s hear what she has to say.
I dialled kemi’s number from my phone.
ME: hello kemisola
KEMI: hi love, where are you?
ME: I’m still with my boss on the project site
KEMI: when will you be through?
ME: I can’t say for now, but soon sha
KEMI: ooooh God, time is going now
ME: don’t worry, if we can’t be chanced to go out
today, what about tomorrow?
KEMI: that’s impossible, me and my family are
returning very early tomorrow morning
ME: haaaaa, ok, I pray we leave here quickly today
KEMI: and what happens if you don’t leave on time?
ME: I don’t know oooo,
KEMI: ok, let’s do it this way
KEMI: with the situation of things, I don’t think I would
be able to sneak out again today after this moment
