So I promised to introduce my girl Trish – the latest addition to the sisterhood. She’s 25, pretty, badass and mad ass fun. She’s like STAR …never a dull moment. I know you’ll love her. She’s currently serving (NYSC) with a PR firm. You don’t want to mess with her bottle and her man. Ok …let me know what else you want to know about Trish.
By the way, something happened recently and I have to gist you. Just like the essays we all wrote and wrote and wrote in primary school, this gist is called THE DAY I’LL NEVER FORGET
Scratch that! this gist is called THE DAY AND BOY I’LL NEVER FORGET.
Here’s what happened to me this fateful day. It was Enitan‘s birthday and being the type of girl she is, she doesn’t believe in clubbing or partying on her birthday. She uses the day to reflect and meditate on her past years and tries to plan for her future. We all tried to get her out of the house, but she insisted on sitting back, watch a couple of movies and listen to some blues (Yeah, boring. Thought so too!Me I think she was broke sha!)
Anyway, everyone soon left the house and Enitan and I were left alone, talking and laughing. When it was evening, she decided to take a stroll. Something told me to stay back but I just never listen to my heart. I got into my jeans, threw a top on and left the house with her. When we strolled for some minutes, she asked if I was tired, something told me to say yes, but again, I ignored ‘something’. We kept walking and then I saw him. He crossed the road to the side we were on and walked past us. He looked good, breathtakingly good!
I paused for a moment when I saw him and told Enitan he looked really good and I was tempted to tell him. Enitan urged me to go ahead. Something told me to ignore her, but did I listen to ‘something’? No! I walked up to him, smiled the sweetest coco smile and said “er…hi, you look good. Thought you’ll like to know“. He smiled back and said thank you. Then I turned to go but he pulled me back and asked for my name. I told him and then he asked for my no. “Wow…I didn’t compliment you so that you could get my number” I said.
He smiled and pressed further. Something told me to keep refusing but again I ignored this voice of reasoning and typed in my number.
He didn’t call for days and then he sent me a text and asked for my BB pin. I sent it to him without thinking and then it started. The first thing he sent to me via bbm was “I feeling sleepy lately, may it’s because I not talking to you”
Well, because I’m a girl who believes in second chances and the fact that people make mistakes, I decided to ignore it, then the next one came in “I really wants to see you. Don’t wants happening to me.” At this point I wished I had listened to that voice. I gently told him I was busy and ended the chat.
Hours later, I checked my phone and he had sent me series of messages. The first thing I read was “what’s up now. I holaring at you since“. At this point, I just told him “you know what? I don’t think you and I can be friends” and then deleted him. I still find it hard to reconcile that face with those messages!
Well, he called and asked “why you deletion me?” It was kinda hard getting him off my back. I have promised myself and God to just admire at a distance now. It’s safer! And I have also made a concious effort to listen to that “something” that keeps warning me.
