They came together twice again before the
week runs out and I was already in talking
terms with Shade even though we rarely talk in
school. Our conversation was only in my
hostel and on phone.
I called shade on this faithful day that I was
having free lecture that I wanted to see her
and she should try and come alone and never
let Bola know she was coming to my hostel. I
also call Bola to discharge her that I was not
around. Unexpectedly Shade came as I said
without Bola. We eat as usual and my heart
was beating so fast as I didn’t know where to
I let the environment cool down as she laid on
my bed and I was sitting by the edge of the
Shade:so, u said u wanted to see me for
Me:yes, its not something important like that
Shade:so, whats it?
I started perambulating up and down, talking
about my life history, my past relationship,
the future I want to build and the kind of
person I wish to build my future with. I was
just going up and down in so many direction
but at the end, I make her understand that I
will so much appreciate if we can build
something together, work towards the same
goal and build a future together…
Shade: All what you said is funny now as I
never even thought of it that you might want
to discuss something like this with me
Me: And what about now that have discussed
Shade:Well, it’s a NO NO for me cos have
made up my mind before my admission that I
will never date anybody in the university
Me:well, am not anybody, am snakie and I
believe we could build something together
Shade:what about Bola?
Me:she’s just a friend…a close pal
Shade: What about all those babes that use to
come for your tutorial?
Me:they are just course mate now…..Notyn
between me and anybody
Shade: I believe Bola is good for you or any of
those lady but as for me I don’t think it will
Me:pls shade, I know what I want in life and
datz y am coming for you..moreover I don’t
think there’s anytyn impossible cos there’s no
way you will spell impossible without possible
in it….just give me a chance in your life and
believe me, you will never regret it.
***silence in the room********(I think am
getting to her already).
I started again with so many talks and all
stuff talking about what I want all over again.
Still same old story
Shade:sincerely snakie, this is heavy in my
heart cos I don’t know what to say
Me:then you can say YES.
Shade: Just like that? Please you will have to
give me enough time to think things through.
Me:No problem, if that’s what you want…..
It was a silent atmosphere as she left about
thirty minutes later. There was a sense of
fulfilment in me as I believe it was a positive
response from her. I sent her like 3pages of
text message later in the night and called her
to know how she was doing. I saw her in the
school the following day which was Friday but
never talk about our discussion.
Shade’s house was like 40mins drive to my
house..100 naira bus or 250naira bike.
Something took me to their area on Saturday
with a friend and I called her to find out if she
was around. She described her house for me
and it was so easy to locate. She introduced
me to her senior sister and I was welcomed
cheerfully. We talked about so many things
and her sister was totally a nice person…….
Me:so, what about our discussion
Shade:we will talk about that when we get to
Me:what about now..it wont make any
Shade:lets see how it goes
Me:is that a yes?
Shade:lets just see how things develop
Me:thanks so much, you will never regret this
***we hugged and I left their house with my
friend******My friend was already fantasizing
about shade’s physique and beauty and
commended me that she was a big fish.
School resumed on Monday and Bola was the
first person I talk to
Me:whats up Bola, how was your weekend
Me:I asked shade out and she accepted
Bola:ehn ehn….Good for you
Me:is that what you will say?
Bola:what did u expect me to say now…………..
Me:No problem, I just felt I should let u know
first before any other person.
Bola:ohk…..thats good…wish you the best…..
****she walked away************************
