    Episode 1

    Ikemefuna sat on the couch in his
    living room, arms folded on his chest,
    eyes clouded with anger, lips stretched
    thin, and watched the hand of the clock
    move towards 9pm for the umpteenth
    time. He was fuming with anger but
    anyone looking at him would just see a
    handsome, well-built man, watching
    TV, with an impatient stretch to his
    lips. On closer inspection though, the
    anger in his eyes could not be missed.
    He stared at the game showing on the
    TV. His favorite English club, Arsenal
    were playing against their arch
    nemesis, Chelsea and it seems Chelsea
    is going to get the glory once more. He
    watched the screen, at the same time
    listening for when the door will open to
    admit Ugochi, his girlfriend, whom he
    had been waiting for impatiently for the
    past two hours.

    Why is this woman late? What does
    she take me for? How can she leave
    me here and go about frolicking with
    every D--k and Harry in the city? She’ll
    have a lot of explaining to do when she
    gets back here. These were the
    thoughts flowing through his mind as
    he sat, alternately watching the clock
    and the screen, grinding his teeth in an
    obvious sign of frustration.

    Meanwhile, Ugochi was having a great
    time with her girlfriends at the birthday
    party of one of the gang. She laughed
    at something Dawn, the birthday girl
    said and gave Ijeoma a wink. The three
    girls have been rolling together since
    they were at the University, they were
    popularly known as the three
    musketeers back then. Now, all of them
    are settled into their respective careers
    but they still find time to get together
    once in a while.

    It was Dawn’s birthday and they had
    opted for a quiet dinner together at the
    birthday girl’s favorite restaurant
    instead of the usual all-out party she
    throws every year. It had taken a lot of
    convincing on the part of Ugochi and
    Ijeoma before Dawn agreed to have a
    small party with just the girls. She was
    enjoying herself although she would
    never admit it to her friends. Turning
    twenty-five should be a lot of fun.

    The women have a lot in common.
    Apart from been the same ages, they
    also graduated from the same
    department in the University. They all
    studied Microbiology, and each of them
    had their view of the course and how
    they want to use it to make the world a
    better place. Ugochi had opted for Food
    Microbiology and presently works with
    Fan Ice in Ibadan. Ijeoma, fondly called
    Ijay by her friends, had bent towards
    health presently working as a
    laboratory scientist at the University
    College Hospital, Ibadan. Dawn had
    decided on pursuing the beauty angle
    and currently owns a beauty spa in
    New Bodija, Ibadan.

    Ugochi is the only one in a serious
    relationship of the three of them. She
    had been with Ikem for the past three
    years. Dawn prefers to play the field,
    she had like a dozen guys at her
    disposal, which is not surprising as
    she’s the most beautiful of them.
    Ijeoma, on the other hand, is on a
    break in between relationships; her last
    run hadn’t been so enjoyable.

    “Guys, remember that time we all failed
    Professor Odi’s class? He insisted we
    wait after everyone had gone home for
    the holidays, study for a week and
    rewrite the test. I couldn’t believe it
    when he said it.” Ijay reminisced

    “Yeah, yeah. It was the worst week of
    my life.” Dawn muttered

    “You were just pissed because all your
    boyfriends were not available.” Ijay

    “Yeah, well what’s a girl to do when all
    her useful guys were not available.”
    She grumbled

    “At least you still had Dave. The guy
    was so in love with you, he didn’t mind
    staying back for a whole week even
    when you didn’t acknowledge his
    existence.” Ugochi chipped in.

    Dawn covered her face with her hands.
    “Oh please don’t remind me of that

    Ijay laughed. “But Dawn, you were so
    hard on the guy.”

    “I just couldn’t see myself with him. He
    was so needy, you know. I could never
    be with a guy like that.”

    “Yeah. We all know you like them
    tough.” Ugochi teased.

    She laughed. “You got that right, baby.”

    Ugochi checked her wristwatch, noted
    the time. “Girls, I’m sorry to break this
    up but I really must get going.”

    “Hmmm, we understand girl. That hunk
    of yours must be waiting for you.”

    Dawn winked. “Lucky girl.” She sighed

    “How is Ikem?” Ijay asked

    Ugochi beamed. “He’s fine o.”

    “Hmm, that your man is a real eye
    candy. I wish he were mine.” Dawn
    winked again

    “Keep your thoughts away from my
    man abeg.” Ugochi laughed. “Don’t
    you have your hands full already?”

    “You can never have enough now.”

    Ugochi was about to answer when her
    phone beeped signaling an incoming
    call. She checked the caller ID and saw
    it was a video call from Ikem.

    “Speak of the devil.” Ugochi gestured.

    “I need to take this.” She stepped out
    of the restaurant to give herself some

    “Hi babe.” She smiled at Ikem’s face
    on her screen.

    He didn’t return her smile. “Do you
    know what time it is?”

    Ugochi shrugged. “No. what’s up?”

    “I want you to start coming home
    immediately.” He snapped

    “I was about to.”

    “I’ll be waiting for you.”

    “Okay, see you soon.”

    He cut the call without saying goodbye.
    Ugochi frowned at her phone and
    shrugged again. He’s probably in one
    of his shitty moods again. She didn’t
    care for the many mood swings, she
    never knew how he was going to react
    when he gets into those stints. She
    better do as he says before it gets too

    Ugochi went back into the restaurant.
    “Girls, I have to go; my man needs

    “Don’t sweat it.” Ijay waved. “We are
    ready to call it a night too.”

    “Thanks for a wonderful birthday girls. I
    actually enjoyed myself. Who would
    have thought, huh?”

    “We knew you were going to love it.
    That was why we insisted.”

    Ugochi bent to grab her bag off the
    floor as the other girls stood. They
    walked out together.

    “So, I’ll see you guys soon, yeah?”
    Ugochi asked

    “Sure.” The other ladies answered

    “I still have a private party tonight. You
    get my meaning?”

    “We know you now, no be you?
    They all laughed and shared a group
    hug before going their separate ways.
