What a night
It got me thinking
I was hurt by Biola’s choice of words. I know that she does not owe me anything but I thought we had something going on. She said she was going to change for me and be the one for me but she didn’t think twice before calling another “baby” or asking him to tell me that she is asleep.
Looking back on how we met and the things we’ve been through, that was quite sad.
I never said this but I gradually parted ways with Shirls because of Biola. She made it clear that she didn’t like Shirls. I guess the cooking and other things were all done just to fool me.
I was beginning to consider going all “we are in a relationship” with Biola but after what I heard on the phone I knew there was no way “WE” were going to happen.
I think I was heart broken and when I couldn’t take the pain anymore; I drove to De Marquee to chill a bit. So I decided to call the only person that makes me feel better at time like this
Slim : Hey Nobs,what’s up?
Nobs : I’m good
Slim: Are you okay, love?
Nobs: Not really
Slim: What’s wrong?
Nobs: I don’t feel good, can you come?
Slim : Nobs, I’m home but if it is that serious I can drive out.
Nobs ; Not to worry, boo
Slim : Is your sister okay?
Nobs : Yes, she is. Thank you
Slim : Have you eaten?
Nobs: I ate in the afternoon.
Slim : What’s the matter then?
Nobs : Nothing serious jor.
Slim : You know you can always talk to me?
Nobs : I know
Slim : Okay. Let me know if you need anything.
Nobs : may be Ghana high
Slim : That would be on Monday na
Nobs : Oh okay. I’ll talk to you tomorrow
Slim: Good night, Nobs. Please try and go home on time.
Believe me, Slim has a way of making me feel better and that is one of the reason why I do not wish to take the relationship a notch higher because I’m afraid that a relationship may bring in the ‘see finish’ factor and I may no longer feel this way. I couldn’t even bring myself to tell her what was wrong and she has warned me in the past not to discuss as she puts it “memoirs girls” with her. Now she will read it here. Slim, I’m expecting the call to bash me.
When I got off the phone with Slim, I called Shirls, not because of anything but I wanted to sleep peacefully so I thought I might have to come real.
Shilrs : Nobs, good evening
Nobs : hey baby. How are you?
Shirls : I’m good
Nobs : I just called to say sorry for all the times that I may have lied to you that you had to find out the truth on my dairy . I hope I didn’t hurt you so much.
Shirls : Nobs, it’s okay. I have accepted you for who you are and I have come to love you just the way you are.
Nobs : I love you,Shirls
Shirls: I love you, Nobs
Nobs : I wish you were here with me.
Shirls : Nobs, is this a booty call?
Nobs : Not at all.
Shirls : Lunch tomorrow?
Nobs : Why not. Call me after church service.
Shirls : Okay
I was happy that I made peace with Shirls and was looking forward to our lunch date. I got home and was waiting for Biola to call and pretend that she didn’t know I called but I did not get even an sms from her. Instead of getting really angry, I started making excuses for her. I thought maybe the dude deleted my number after the call but when I checked my BBM, we were still friends. It then dawned on me, Biola was over me.
Sunday May 15,2011.
I was sleeping when the phone rang, believe me I knew Biola was going to call, so I didn’t even look at it, I picked and said
Nobs : Good morning, Ma
Mum ; Ijekwara uka?
Nobs : Mba
Mum : Why?
Nobs : I went out last night and woke up late this morning.
Mum : And when was the last time you went for vigil
Nobs : Last year
Mum : Ihari biko n’uka
Nobs : No ma
Mum ; So Chizoba Agu is asking for your number.
Nobs : Is she back in Nigeria
Mum : She came to the house on Saturday with the mother and she said she would be visiting Lagos soon.
Nobs : Is she the new Ada?
Mum : Taa meche onu. You don’t have to give her.
Nobs : You can give her.
Mum: She asked for your pin but I told her that I don’t do this blackberry thing with you people.
Nobs ; Just give her the number, Ma.
Mum ; She’s even prettier now
Nobs ; I was expecting that too.
Mum ; Chibuzor, gawa kwa uka
Nobs ; Yes ma.
Sometimes I think my mother was a bishop in her first life. She does not play with anything that has to do with the Anglican Church.
However, Chizoba Agu was the issh. We grew up in the same neighbourhood. She grew boobs before her mate and that got her noticed by ‘bigger boys’. She made it obvious to us that she was strictly into big boys and that broke my heart.
She moved to Owerri for her secondary school education and from there travelled to Scotland for College. We never kept in touch, she was just one of those hot chics and I never thought she would ever ask for my number.
Some Sundays are just dry but I guess the aftermath was still fresh on my mind. I was still thinking of who to settle down with when the BBM came in.
Jenny : I’m so sorry about last night
Nobs : It’s all good
Jenny : Where are you ?
Nobs ; Home
Jenny : Alone?
Nobs : With aMACa
Jenny : Oh sorry. Maybe I”ll buzz you later
Nobs : aMACa is my laptop
Jenny ; Oh you got me there
Nobs : So what’s up?
Jenny : Are we seeing today ?
I thought hard about it and decided that someone has to pay for what they put me through .
Nobs : Where are you now?
Jenny : Dolphin Estate
Nobs :Let me know when you are ready to come
Jenny: I’ll let you know when we are ready
Nobs: Jenny, let’s make this a you and me affair
Jenny: I hope Kim won’t mind. Like think I went behind her back.
Nobs: I will let her know that I invited you and no, Kim & I are not exclusive.
Jenny: Oh okay. Please I don’t want issues with my friend.
Nobs: I’ll handle that.
I thought about hitting up Kim to inform her that I would be hooking up with Jenny but decided not to because I wasn’t sure if she would approve.
Shirls called as agreed and we decided to meet up at Ice Cream factory. She was glad that I was doing it for her considering that I had been off Ice cream for sometime.
When I got to ICF, she was waiting for me in a cab. Immediately we walked in, we saw Biola standing by the till with a man.
Shirls didn’t know who it was and Biola pretended she didn’t know me from Adam.
I couldn’t take it and I did what no one expected me to do…
