Maybe this is out of place to do as Etido my friend is telling me, but I am craving to visit my student crush. it is long overdue, we are now too intertwined, I saw it inappropriate to invite her to my place which is a staff quarters, but she asked for it as a reward of acing one of her very core courses.
I obliged with feigned reluctance, it is an opportunity I have been waiting for. Out to the GRA in a cab, dressed casually in a blue short and white top, got to the very beautiful house, a duplex, very serene and displays obviously what wealth is!
The door was swung open for me by the gorgeous looking woman, in a well coutured gown, low cut hair dyed in gold; she smiled at me and ushered me in. I greeted and walked in, I was still amazed when I saw Uduak coming down from the staircase; “meet my aunt – Emem Ottong!” – standing in front of me is one of the biggest names in the industry, the Emem Ottong with over 30 awards that I know of. I am actually standing in front of the kind of person I need for my big break in the industry, and adrenaline burst through me!
she is the warmest person I have ever met aside from my mom, she sat with us throughout the lesson and study time, in the course to impress her; I took the lesson very seriously, paid extra attention to everything, It is almost like a project interview, pure display of erudition.
I got her attention of course as she began to ask questions, it was a very good moment, everyone was happy! I got the treat of my life afterward, ate a native soup with Eba, a good wine afterward and also a oral waiver from Emem; she said she will love to see me on her screens.
I was happy than happiness; that through the lady that tormented my journey to Calabar is where I will get a feat I have craving for five years is the true definition of IRONY! – We (I and Uduak) had alone time outside the house while I waited for my cab; it was a moment I was to seize but I did nothing.
The cab man gave me a whole 40mins to kiss the goddess in my reach before his arrival but I kept my cool for reasons I do not know, the smile of Uduak proved that the kiss is suppose to happen but my nerves failed me! I know what you are thinking and you are right to call me stupid.
The biggest thing is about to happen, a call came through from my aunt while I was in my crush’s class, she called me to check my mail soon and reply accordingly as soon as I can.
she said also that I should inform Fred who I am with in one of the school’s restaurant. we opened our mails respectively and it was a request from her company for a movie audition!
the happiness on Fred’s face was priceless, he literally froze in amazement and I could see his eye bags filled with water but he managed to control the eyes situation! I was glad to share and be part of the moment with him, it seems to be something he longed for.
He took me out of the restaurant to another in the most sophisticated part of Calabar and gave me a very wonderful treat! I felt very much like a queen, if he manage to ask me to pull my [email protected] or ask that I should marry him; both request will get the best “YES” in the world.
we were out till lste in the night, and he made me understand that the treat is his way of saying “thank you” – This made my heart light for love, I began to get desperate to be Forked by this very charming man; not even the coolest London guy ever gave me this treat, all is happening in one night and in my home town, I think I am loving Calabar!
