Story: To Love And To Leave…Part 8
The silence was quite awkward, none of us said a
word for a while, Bidemi was looking down at her
feet , Femi’s eyes were fixed on her, though he
occasionally took a glance at me at intervals . He
doesn’t like me, no doubt and i share the same
feelings towards him . i decided to break the
Me: Look Femi! This is not a good time
Femi: Was i talking to you??
Me: No but it’s…….
Femi: (cuts in) don’t speak unless you are spoken to
Me: Well you can’t tell me what to say or do
Femi: Good! Maybe i should punch you and you’ll
Me: Hahaha… punch me? I want to see you try
Bidemi: Both of you stop this right now!! Dolapo, I’ll
call you later
Femi: You heard her, leave right now!
Bidemi: You too Femi! Both of you leave right now!
I chose not to say a word, i left the room and Femi
followed. i heard the door shut hard behind us
both. We walked through the compound in silence.
Femi is a rather big guy, broad chested and looks
like he’s been working out in the gym. I am a little
taller than he is but less hefty, you don’t get scared
seeing my physique! I’ve been in fights before, i
won some and i lost a lot of them. violence is not
really my cliche and i always try to avoid it most
often than not. I opened the gate and Femi walked
right through it, shoving me off in the process
Femi: I just want to let you know that i understand
Bidemi is a beautiful girl and She’s not like any
other girl you’ve met but She’s mine and you have
to stay the hell away from her!
Me:You guys broke up
Femi: Is that what she told you or that was what
you assumed? wake up boy! She used you to while
away the time but now I’m back!
He turned and left. The truth actually is, Bidemi has
never told me they broke up. yes, she was mad at
him, Yes she said he’d hurt her but she never told
me they broke up. Maybe Femi was right, maybe
not. I got home and met mom and Wale in the
sitting room, i went straight to bed and laid on it.
Today is supposed to be the best day, i got to kiss
my love but then the devil’s advocate showed up
and destroyed everything! Bidemi is the love of my
life and no one, absolutely no one can tell me to
stay away from her!!
A guy had spoilt his reunion with Bidemi and he
hated him immediately. it’s impossible that she’d
fall out of love so soon. she couldn’t have loved
him, he won’t believe that! All his time in the village
had been spent thinking about her. he’d met a
pretty girl who did try so hard to have a
relationship with him but he had declined. The
condom his brother had left in his traveling bag
remained unused for the whole two months he had
spent there. He knew he messed up the first time
but if given the chance, he will redeem himself!
Bidemi was the only one who had called him
consistently during his stay even kikelomo didn’t
call at all and he was so glad she didn’t. He’s fone
Tunde: Ikoko jegun jeran
Femi: Tunde! i thought i blocked your number
Tunde: I know but i changed to another number,
Guy you Funk up o, you dey bone your guy
Femi: I needed sometime for myself Tunde and
please stop calling me Ikoko, I’m a different person
Tunde: O boy! if you change the world don end be
that. you wey nack mother and hin two daughters
Femi: They are step sisters so shut up
Tunde?laughs) dey deceive yourself o. so which one
of the babes you wan stick with now?
Femi: Na Bidemi o
Tunde: shey that small immature girl wey they
Femi: call her that again and punch your lights out
Tunde: no vex bro , she don forgive you?
Femi: she will, but the problem is that a guy is
Tunde: E dey mad! shey make i organize boys to
come beat am ni?
Femi: E never reach that side i fit handle am
Tunde: If you need guys sha anytime
Femi: I no need but i go call you sha
Tunde: Ok o! Ikoko. Talk to you later bro
Femi: Ok. Bye
He knows he doesn’t need boys to scare the guy
away. He owns Bidemi and no one, absolutely no
one can take her away from him.
Her heart’s beating faster now, a thousand things
on her mind, just when she thought she has her life
under control, everything goes haywire again. Why
did Femi had to come in? Now he’s back to squash
all her expectations. She doesn’t know who to call
but she needed someone to talk to. funmilayo’s
number wasn’t reachable and kikelomo’s was
reading unavailable. She thought of calling one of
the boys but she didn’t know which one. Femi had
been so jealous she felt sorry for him, it was
written on his face and she read him like a book.
Dolapo was mature about the whole situation, any
guy would have flared up but Dolapo didn’t and he
had walked out politely when she asked them both
to leave. She picked her phone and dialed a
number, It was Dolapo’s
Dolapo: Hello Bidex
Bidemi: How are you Dolapo?
Dolapo: Well…. what can i say? i guess I’m okay
Bidemi: look, I’m really sorry about what happened,
i had no idea he was back. I’m so sorry he spoke to
you that way.
Dolapo: I understand it wasn’t your fault but i have
to asked; Did you break up with him officially?
Bidemi: I was mad at him for what he did, we didn’t
have time to talk because he left for the village the
next day after i found out what he did, i only called
him when he got to the village
Dolapo: You called him? Were you calling him all
through his time at the village??
Bidemi: Yes i was but it meant nothing, i was
checking up on him
Dolapo: Really? checking up on him? And you called
that breaking up, you were calling him Bidemi, no
guy will see that as a break up
Bidemi: I’m sorry Dolapo
Dolapo: Can i ask you a Question?
Dolapo: Do you still love Femi??
Bidemi: (silent )
Dolapo: Bidemi? Are you still there? please answer
the question, tell me if you still love him
Bidemi: (sobs) I’m sorry Dolapo i have to go now…
Dolapo: No wait! …….
She dropped the call, the tears flowed
uncontrollably. she opened a new message to be
sent to Femi, she typed..
I’m glad you’re back Femi, i really am! but i don’t
want to see you. Atleast not yet! Bye!
Message sent and delivered. She needs a time of
her own, a time to decide who she wants. Femi will
always be our first love and they say you never
forget your first love. Dolapo had made her feel
secure, being in his arms and kissing him felt like
being in paradise, but will she ever love him as
much as she loves Femi? She thought about it as
she buried her face in the pillows.
She had called and didn’t answer the only question
I wish to know. she had cried when i asked her if
she still loves him… Her tears meant she loves him
, i think! But i will fight for her love no matter what.
if there is a slim chance that Bidemi can be mine, i
will take it with both hands.
Wale stepped into the room
Wale: Ogbeni! Why are you looking like a possessed
Me: Shut up brother
Wale: What’s wrong man? Since you got back you’ve
been really quiet
Me: I was with Bidemi, everything went on perfectly
until her Ex, that Femi guy showed up
Wale: Damn! I hope he didn’t break a bottle on your
Me: He wouldn’t dare!
Wale: So what’s going to happen now? you can’t let
him scare you away, he had his chance with her
and he messed it all up, now you have her
Me: That’s what i thought but i think she still loves
Wale: Ode lomo yen o ( The girl is dumb )
Me: Don’t say that about her! We can’t help who we
fall in love with Wale
Wale: Not when the person hurts us so bad
Me: You can’t judge her Wale! You’re not in her
Wale: Come here and look around! You can’t win a
girl with this mister nice guy you’re doing o. Girls
always fall in love with the bad guys, the playboys
and you the nice one, they turn you into their best
friend and call you “buddy”, They tell you that
you’re that you are like a brother to them while they
go running after the bad boys who hurts them over
and over again. Look Dolly-p! this girl was sad, she
needed someone to make her happy and you came
in at the right time to fill the void he left, now that
he’s back, she’ll leave you for him and come back
again only after he hurts her
Me: i don’t think that’s true
Wale: Ehn en! why didn’t she ask you to stay and tell
Femi to leave?
Me: Uhmm…. i don’t know…. but….
Wale?cuts in) There’s no but here. Forget the girl
and go for the girl that really loves you and you
kept seeing her as friend.
Me: What do you mean?
Wale: Ada! i mean Ada! That girl loves you but
you’ve been too blind to see it
Me: that’s not possible, how would you know that?
Wale: because she told me! SHE told me she loves
you but you never notice her, just wake up man so
you won’t lose both girls, my advice is to choose
the heart that loves you.
He said that and walked out of the room, i couldn’t
wrap my head around what he said, Ada loves me?
how can she love me? That can never happen. My
fone beeped, a call came in and it was Ada calling.
For the first time ever, i was scared of picking her
