Jummy:So can we go out tonight
Me: Out, Out to where? Tell me that you’re joking
Jummy:(She laughs) So you can’t take me out
Me: Not that, you’ve just be discharged from the hospital.. And what would happen if your Uncle finds out about it
Jummy: Nothing… He can’t oppose to it
Me: Please let’s just be on the safer side.. Can we postpone it till….
Me: Do you care for another tea
Jummy: No, I’m okay
Me: Jummy, tell me why you decide to put yourself in danger because of me
Jummy: I couldn’t stand you missing, you don’t know how you made me feel the first day we met in school
Me: Jummy, it’s okay. Don’t cry anymore. Where are u staying now
Jummy: I’m staying with my Uncle… My parent pushed me out for causing them shame
I stood up and placed her head on my chest
Jummy, it’s okay.. Don’t cry anymore, meanwhile she stroked my back softly.
“I was so relieved that day, I felt like no other guy had touched me before… I wholeheartedly fell for you
Me: Jummy, I know that but do you think your uncle won’t be mad at our togetherness
Jummy: Do you love me
Me: Won’t you answer my question
Jummy: If you love me, I don’t think anything should stop Love
Me: huh, that’s true… I love you dear.
One part of my mind was glad, the other was shedding light on the day myself and Betty slept together… What if Betty comes all of a sudden and mess everything
‘If you have a girl problem, I feel bad for you son, I get 99 problems but the b—h ain’t one, I gat the rap patrol on the……. ‘
I woke up to my phone ringing tune. It was the Principal, Mrs Funke
I slowly picked it up
Me: Hello ma
Mrs Funke: Hi, good morning Ola, how are you doing?
Me: I’m fine ma
Mrs Funke: That’s good, I heard that you were missing or something… Hope you didn’t get hurt and how did it happen
Me: I was kidnapped while on my way home (I lied) I’m okay ma, there was no mishap
Mrs Funke: I also heard of Jummy being admitted into an hospital.. Did you hear of it
Me: Well yes ma
Mrs Funke: That’s true because someone claim to see you too two days ago entering into a cab… Is she alright now and what happened
I was caught unexpectedly, I knew at this juncture I had to give a blatantly smooth lie or else she would think I had something with Jummy
Me: Erm….. Well.. Nothing ma, she was…. I mean she got involved in an accident nut she’s okay now
Mrs Funke: Okay dear, take care of yourself… I’m missing you here in school
Before I could reply, she had hunged up the call…. “Missing me in school”.. Why??
“Who called?? ”
I turned to see Jummy in the room
‘The principal’, she asked raising her eyebrow’
‘And what did you tell her’
‘Everything is okay dear, I didn’t expose you
‘Oh, that’s relieving… ‘
Her facial expression changed immediately
Me: Jummy, what is it… Are you sad or what?
Jummy: I came here to tell you something, there is something I need you to explain to me
Me: What is it?
She looked at me for almost 20 second making me almost loose control… What is it now Jummy
She handed over to me a small sheet of paper
‘Read it aloud’
I took the paper and read it silently first
I’m so happy to write to you. I don’t know how she would feel about what happened between us yesterday , I was expecting you last night… I really love the way u handled me, you are such a wonderful guy and I’ll wish to spend the res6of my life with you.. Will you be chanced tonight. Let’s meet at Gerlachy hotel… I’ll be waiting by 7pm
Jummy: I said read it aloud
I looked at Jummy, I was scared deep inside of me but still managed to gather some courage and asked her ” Jummy, where did you get this from?”
Jummy: My sister Sade. I guess she wrote that to you
Me: To Me!! Did that just came out for your mouth, but Jummy, how can you think….
Jummy: I dunno either, wait a sec that reminds me, where were you yesterday when I went to bath…. How did that red stain get to your lips. I know the lip gloss that Sade wore yesterday so know how to lie the lie
Will you say something and stop keeping me waiting
Me: Jummy, do you think I would do this to you
Jummy: I’m not saying that you did it, I want an explanation…
Just then a knock came on the door
Jummy: Who the hell is there?
I’m the hell here… It’s Sade
My heart pumped like pumping machine.. Wahala shele
Sade: Jummy, come out I need to speak with you
Jummy: Sade please wait….. I’m coming
Sade: Please be fast, we need to talk
Jummy: What is it, can’t you wait
Sade: Did you see any letter or paper on my table
Jummy stopped and turned back
Jummy: Were you the one that wrote it to my boyfriend…. Safe you did this
Sade: Which of the boyfriends, will you stop pranting nonsense and give it to me… She entered the room
It’s meant for Olamide, or don’t you know him
Jummy: How should I believe you
Sade: Anyhow you like….. She took the paper from her and looked at me
Hello Mr boyfriend
Jummy looked at me and looked at her
The atmosphere went cool all of a sudden
