Me: Temmy I think I’ve put myself in
Temmy: What’s wrong?
Me: (I showed him the text message) I
think I pushed it too far
Temmy: No you didn’t. It would have
been worse if you guys are already
Me: Of course that’s surely a time out or
I should just call it by its name, breakup.
What she hated the most
Temmy: She was really hurt by the
message but she’ll get over it
Me: I pray o. Because her message
sound so serious
Temmy: You don’t know how much that
girl loves you. She neglect almost
everything because of you.
Me: I kmow and that’s why I’m feeling
guilty right now. Maybe I should go to
her, beg her and let it out tomorrow.
Temmy: No, the timing is very wrong
Me: Wrong timing how?
Temmy: It will look like she pushed it
and she’s likely going to be defensive
because of that. She’s a lady you know,
she wouldn’t want to look cheap.
Me: And I have one Janet on my neck
Temmy: you don’t want to marry a lady
like that. That’s obsession.
Me: (Sighs) What should I o now? I
really can’t afford to lose her Temmy.
Temmy: Don’t allow her to create space.
If she’s trying to go one stem out, you
move two steps closer. Let things calm
own naturally and at your own
convenience you’ll let it out.
Me: You really think I can afford to do
that now. Won’t it be too late for me?
Temmy: No it won’t be
Me: And you think it will work?
Temmy: You are getting desperate bro,
and that’s bad for a good relationship.
You are likely going to act in error nine
out of ten times when you act in
desperation. Cool down and allow
things to heal naturally. If it doesn’t heal
then I think it was never meant to be in
the first place. Don’t forget que cera
Me: I know but one can stop it from
coming to pass through action, inaction,
negligence or being naive which I think
it’s my case.
Temmy: Not in this case. Believe me,
she can’t live without you.
Me: Okay, I’ll allow it to heal. What do
you think I should do about Janet? Her
desperation wil sure be putting me in
trouble if it won’t stop.
Temmy: Don’t let her bother you. The
last time I checked she’s still engaged.
Me: And that’s the problem. I really pity
the said guy.
Temmy: I don’t. It was the guy that is
giving her cause to doubt their
Me: So she’s trying to turn me into
Temmy: Spare tyre sound better (We
Me: Imagine that. Spare tyre is always
smaller than real tires and it’s for a
while. The moment the real tire got
fixed, spare tyre find it’s route back to
the boot till another tire get deflated.
Temmy: The problem she’s causing you
is even more than you know.
Me: How do you mean?
Temmy: Do you know the major reason
Uche was always on your neck all these
Me: It was project that made her start
talking to me o. I don’t know where the
sudden twist of events came from. The
first time she was here was because of
her project. Though I’ve escaped her
now, at least i can rest on that.
Temmy: You wish. It’s far from over. So
far her reason is still there, she’ll still
come for you. Just be expecting her
Me: Wait are you Uche’s agent? Which
reason other than project and thank
God the project is done and dusted. I
don’t even need her for the defense
neither does she needs me, case
Temmy: Project only give her a very
good opportunity. She was only hiding
under project. The major reason she
was on your neck was because of
Me: How do we make sense out of that.
Uche disturbing my life because of
Janet, to help Janet or to punish her?
Temmy: You kmow they were
roommates with Rachael in 100 level
Me: She they all told me that
Temmy: Uche has always love anything
Me: Okay, I used to hear there is no
new thing under the heaven, but this is
new tome. So she love everything Janet
love including man? What do I call that,
Temmy: No, jealousy I think.
Me: That will be a grade-A jealousy. She
should be awarded at the next national
awards (We both laughed)
Temmy: Or she can represent Nigeria at
Me: Exactly, she’s an award winning
person in jealousy.
Temmy: Both of them are from the
same place and it’s like Janet’s abroad
guy went for Uche’s first before
dumping her for Janet
Me: Mehn dude is a bad guy. Dump his
babe for friend, and that’s first class
break up. The guy too deserve an
award for that. Legendry!
Temmy: Uche never consent to the
guy’s proposal even though Janet
advice her to. I heard the guy was
below average financially then.
Me: Hmm. Poor dude. Broke guys
Temmy: Uche then asked Janet to go
for the guy if she like him that much
and Janet did exactly that only for
things to turn around for the guy’s
family a year later.
Me: Wao! Rachael told you this?
Temmy: They both did, both Rachael
and Janet. And since then, Uche
believes anything Janet like is surely
good, even if it doesn’t look good now.
Me: (Laughed) Personally created
superstition. Well that’s their problem
not mine. Uche is out of the picture for
Temmy: Time will tell
I decided to follow Temmy’s advice and
allow things to heal naturally with
Funmi. The plan was working
successfully as we went back to being
close the way we used to be before
she flared up, until she started
following a new guy around. This guy is
huge, muscular and sincerely
handsome. I felt so threatened with
this new alliance and i tried as much as
I could to chase the guy off her but they
seem to be getting closer by day. I
almost ran mad from anger and
jealousy the week Funmi used the guy’s
pictures as her DP on both whatsapp
and BBM. She kept using his different
picture everyday, coupled with
heartbreaking PMs like “Love is a
beautiful thing”, “the heart knows
where it belongs”. I couldn’t hold it
anymore, so I call her to ask about the
Me: Hello Funmi
Funmi: What’s wrong, you sound angry
Me: I’m not angry. Who is that guy on
Funmi: Which DP?
Me: Both whatsapp and BBM
Funmi: What do you think?
Me: Are you trying to drive me nuts?
Funmi: What’s your business with my
Me: Is that what you’ll say?
Funmi: What do you want me to say?
Stop stalking me around. My DP, my PM,
my business, not yours.
I dropped the call in shame as she was
very right. I indeed don’t have business
with her DP. To rub salt on my
emotional wound, she immediately
after the call, uploaded a picture where
she was leaning on the guy’s chest and
my heart literally got burst. I must take
action now before I run completely
I was still in this shock when I receive a
call from Aramide giving me another
Aramide: Hi William, long time
Me: Yeah, I tried contacting you but you
are always busy
Aramide: I’m sorry about that, you
know my department now. I’m free
Me: That’s good. So what’s up?
Aramide: I’m good. Remember I told
you I have something to discuss with
Me: Yeah, we never get chance to meet
Aramide:I’ve done more research and
my curiosity has been confirmed to be
Me: And what’s that?
Aramide: It’s not what we can discuss
on phone. Let’s meet by next week. I’m
currently out of school but will be back
on Sunday. Thank God next week is the
lecture free week.
Me: Alright, no problem
Aramide: Before then, try asking your
mum if you have a twin, because I can
tell tell you your twin is still alive
Me: Twin ke!
Aramide: We’ll talk on Monday.
