I wasn’t really sure if the text message was real so I went to the washroom to wash my face, came back and took a second look at the text message Tina sent to me. I was stunned! I couldn’t believe my eyes. Immediately I called Tina back, She answered, and I asked her, “Is everything okay? I saw your missed calls from last night, are you okay?”, “yeah I’m fine”, she said. “Are you very sure?”, I asked again, “I said I’m fine”, and I continued, “My phone was on silent so I couldn’t hear my phone ring”, She said nothing. “Did you send me that message last night?”, she replied, “Yes I did”, and I continued, “Did you mean it”, I asked, “I did”, she answered. I couldn’t hide my joy.
My joy faded quickly when I received a call from Sally few minutes later, she said, “Hey boo, how you doing? I miss you”, and I replied, “I’m fine, and you?”, “I’m managing, still recovering from last night, last night was fun, wasn’t it?”, she asked, “Yeah yeah I had the time of my night, you were awesome”, I replied. “I wanna come over, are you in your room?”, “No, on my way to lectures, I’m even late”, I lied. “Okay boo, call me when you get back okay, love you, mmwwaahh, byeee!”. I was discombobulated. I never thought two girls would be in love with me. I knew I had to pick one of them.
I’ve been chasing Tina since level 100, but she’s been ignoring me all the time. We now in level 400, and she’s in love with me, it feels like all my efforts have been fruitful even though it’s been a long time. I’ve always love Tina since day one, and I still love her even till now. It’s true she has turn down my proposals all these year due to that fraud ex of hers, but now Vena is out of the picture, this is my time, it’s now or never.
Sally is one of Tina’s friends. Tina introduced her to me. I really don’t know much about her, but what I know for sure is, she loves me. Sally knows how to have fun, and surprisingly we share lots in common, we both love movies, dancing, enjoy the same kinda music, and she’s not boring too. Sally has all I desire from a woman. Tina might be prettier than her, but Sally is definitely smarter than Tina. Sally was bold enough to confess her love for me, I know it wasn’t easy and I respect her for that. I’ve grown strong feelings for Sally overnight. I’ve fallen for Sally.
It wasn’t easy arriving at this decision, but after careful thoughts and debating with my conscience, me, myself and I have chosen the right girl for me. I know I’m gonna be happy with her and I’m certain I’ll be very happy with her.
I called Tina on phone, asked her if she was at home, she said she was. Then I called Sally next, to find out if she was also at home, she said she was. I got into a taxi and went straight to her hall. And like she said, she was at home. She was really excited to see me, I could see stars in her eyes, from the way she looked at me, from the way she laughed when I said something funny, she was just perfect. I was lucky, I never knew all these while she loved me, I wish I could stop time itself, relish this once in a life time moment.
We talked for a while, then I asked her to kiss me. She asked me why? She looked surprised. I told her, “I just want your lips on mine, I want to feel how your wet lips will taste like”, she smiled at me and said “Okay”. She leaned towards me and we kissed. We kissed for about 2 minutes and she bit my lip.
I moaned “OUCH”, she said, “oopsy daisy, I’m sorry”, smiling to herself as if she meant to bite me. This girl almost tore my lower lip in half. It was painful to be honest. I told her I was leaving, she’d hear from me very soon.
Then I called the other girl, she said she was still at home but she’ll be leaving for class in 2 hours time. I told her I was coming over. I picked a taxi to her place, I was happy to see her, she was looking lovely as ever. I went straight to the point, “Why do you suddenly love me?”, she replied, “You seem such a nice guy, so I wanna try my luck with you”, then I asked, “So you don’t love me?”, “I didn’t say that, I’m attracted to you, I just developed these feelings for you, I’m ready to explore how deep this love for you goes”, she answered. Then I asked her to kiss me, and she did. She was kinda shy at first, but she did it.
After I kissed her, I asked her, “Are we now in a relationship?”, and she said, “Not really, not yet I mean, I have a month long exams coming up, I’ll need all the concentration I can get, if I say yes now, I might get distracted, so please wait okay”, I didn’t like the idea of waiting.
When I got home I sent this text message to her;
“Hope you’re fine. I’m not sure how to say this, but
just know, I’m very very sorry. It’s not you, it’s me
I don’t think I deserve you, you’re an awesome
woman and a pretty girl, any guy would kill to be with
you. But my heart is with someone else, I hope you
understand and find someone who will make you equally
happy as I am right now. I wish you all the best.
Thanks for giving me the best night the other time,
I’ll never forget that night, I really had fun with you.
PLEASE WORK ON HOW YOU KISS, YOU KISS TERRIBLE!”
And that was the last time I heard from Sally.
A month had passed, exams was over. Everyone was relieved, the semester stress was finally over. It was time to have some fun. I called Tina, “Hey you good?”, “Yeah I’m fine and you?”, “I’m okay, how was the exams?”, I asked. She replied, “Not bad hmm”, then I said, “Okay, do you have plans this evening?”, “Maybe, I’m still waiting for confirmation, but I have this feeling I’ll be indoors all evening”, she responded. “okay, I’ll come by your place this evening okay”, she said okay and I hang up.
I had plans of taking Tina out that evening, I wanted her to have fun and it’ll also be the perfect opportunity to commence our relationship, I wanted this evening to be perfect! I showed up in front of her door at 7pm and knocked. She opened and went like, “CleDre what are you doing here?”, and I said, “I told you I would be coming here over the phone???”, “oh shit! I forgot”, she responded. “Not to worry, anyways you look very lovely, are you going out?”, I asked, She replied, “yeah my confirmation came in so I’ll be on my way out very soon”, then I asked, “you going out with your friends?”, I curiously asked, she said, “No, I’m going on a date with Vena”. I exclaimed, “Huh? wait! what???, could you please repeat what you just said?”
“I said I’m going on a date with Vena”, she repeated. Then I asked, “Ah but I thought you and Vena were done? So what you going on a date with him for?”, “We’re back together”, she ended. I started laughing and said, “hahaha that was a good joke, you really got me there, stop playing with me”, but she said, “I’m not joking, I’m serious, Vena apologized and I accepted him back, I still love him, could you please excuse me, as you can see I’m running late, could you please step outside, I wanna lock my door”, I couldn’t believe my ears, I thought I was dreaming, but everything was real.
She continued, “CleDre you’re a nice guy, can we just be friends?”, with anger I said, “Can we just be your father and your mother sia! I’ve been in your friend zone for almost four years now, you know the number of girls I’ve bounced all because of you, now you stand here and talk trash huh”, she said, “I understand your frustrations, I’ll be here if you need a friend to talk to”, then she left. “Heeerrrrrhhhhh Awurade medi NKWASIAS3M”, I cried.
Choosing Tina over Sally was like a fox jumping off a cliff to catch a bird flying in the sky, three things are certain, the fox losses it’s safety on the cliff(Sally), fails to catch the flying bird(Tina), the fox losses both safety and prey, the fox dies, what a tragic turn of events.
About a year later, Sally sent me a wedding invitation, she was getting married to Vena. Apparently, Vena had dumped Tina for the 5th time. Sally was a princess to the Chief of Obuase. The rich golden state of Ghana, Sally’s dad was f*cking rich! Some way some how Sally and Vena were in love. I wish them all the best.
God was so good to me, I recovered from my heart break quickly, and I managed to love again. I got into a relationship with Akosua, and we even planning on getting married next year. (In case you wondering who Akosua was)
Abeg if you see Tina any where, tell her I said, “Karma is BiiiAATTTCCCHHHHH! hahahahahha sia girl”
