Why people can’t leave the past behind and move on with life will always befuddle me.
This same uncle that I dodged all through Uni because of his wickedness.
It was when I was in 100 level first semester in the university, I can’t recollect how Abeti began to ask me out but he went all out. One day, I was alone at home, my two roomies, Lola and Tolu had travelled to Lagos.
You already know what’s going to happen next, I’ll tell you anyway.
“When will Lola and Tolu get back from Lagos?”
Abeti moved closer to me, managed to put his arm around me and whispered in my ear, “When are you going to let me in now ehn?”
I shrugged his arm off, moved away from him and asked him,
I’ve never been a fan of ear whispering, it irritates me to no end.
He moved closer, closing the gap.
Ahhhhhhhhhh! Oluwa oooooo. It was at this point that I knew that the heart of man is wicked. Abeti said it with his chest that if I don’t like it he’ll remove it.
“What’s wrong Ife?” Akin asked me, looking behind him to see what pursued me.
“Abeti said he wants to put it inside for testing”
Akin chuckled, walked to my door and I could hear him clearly from where I stood, “Bros, the girl dey fear you, come dey go abeg. Abeg.”
As Abeti walked out of my room, I ducked behind
I looked at Akin again and said “He said he wants to put it inside that if I don’t like it he’ll remove it. Ah! Akin, what kind of human being would say that?”
Akin bent over and laughed so hard, I saw him tear up.
