    >>>Episode 3<<<
    Story by Ajenifuja Adetokunbo.

    *SHARON*

    “My roommates prepared it,”
    he
    said and sighed, “ and for now,
    I am single.” “Really?” My heart fluttered with
    joy,

    “Hmn. You must be joking. A
    guy like you. I doubt it.”

    “I must confess to you,” he said
    almost in a mournful tone, “ My
    girlfriend broke up with me
    long time ago and since then
    I’ve decided to be alone.”
    On hearing that, I lay my hand
    on my chest with excitement.
    “I am also single.” I told him. And I heard him burst into
    laughter. “You are very funny,” he said, “ I
    don’t believe any girl could be
    single, especially an angel like
    you.”

    I was so pleased to hear that
    compliment from him. I blushed
    and smiled to myself like a baby.
    “I am flattered … But I am really
    single. Funny enough, when Dad
    dropped me off this afternoon
    he asked me to introduce him to
    my boyfriend. When I told him I
    had none, he couldn’t believe his ears either. And he later asked
    me to be careful if I wanted to
    have one?”

    “Your Dad said so?” “Yes.”
    “You have got a wonderful and
    considerate father.”
    “Thank you, dear.”
    I said. I decided to abort the phone-call
    when I realized the network
    had beeped two minutes. I
    called the number back and lied
    to him it was a network failure. I
    had over 10,000 worth of airtime on my line to lavish on
    no one, but the king of my
    heart.

    I thought it was time for
    me to express how I felt for him. If I refused to seize the
    opportunity I might just lose
    him to another girl.

    “Festus, I hope you could dine
    with me, as a friend.”
    I said and
    slid out my tongue in
    anticipation of YES or NO “Have a dinner with you?” I
    heard him laugh, “ Oh, I can’t
    afford to … How much do I have
    to dine with a big girl like you.”

    “A big girl? cut the crap,” I said,
    smiling,
    “I’m the one asking you. I would be very glad if you
    wouldn’t say NO.”
    I didn’t hear anything from
    Festus for almost a minute. I
    knew some guys always found
    it difficult when a girl asked them out and having the girl
    doing the spending.

    If Festus
    was actually thinking the same
    way, that meant he was more of
    my type of guy.
    “Festus, please say YES.” I broke
    the silence with my usual
    babyish tone. “Okay. Okay. I will try.”

    I almost burst out screaming
    when I heard that. I thanked
    him for honouring my request. I
    gave him a familiar address of
    an eatery outside the campus. We agreed on 7:30 pm of the
    following day. When I dropped the phone I
    stood up from the couch I had
    been lying on.

    I went straight to
    my freezer for a red wine that
    could make me get tipsy. I took
    a goblet from the bar and filled it at once. I picked up the
    remote control and turned on
    my flat screen TV.
    I flipped open
    a hot romance novel I just
    bought in the afternoon. Reading through it, I began to
    relate what the characters were
    doing to what I would love to
    do with Festus. I felt like kissing
    him. I wanted him to squeeze
    me, hold me tight, place his hands on my butt and tell me ‘I
    love you’.

    **** I had been seated for almost
    thirty minutes awaiting Festus
    to join me at the table. I already
    ordered for a lemon soft drink
    which I was now sipping with a
    straw. I had called his number, he told me he was on his way. I
    kept fretting and fidgeting. I
    couldn’t wait to dine with my
    heart desire. I began to browse
    through my phone to while
    away the time. In a little while, I heard a knock
    on my table and I revealed my
    face only to see Festus –
    my
    heart almost flew away. He was
    looking more handsome! He
    was dressed in a fitted blue shirt and black trousers. His hair
    was different from what I saw
    on the previous day. It used to
    be a rough Afro, but now it was
    neatly trimmed.

    “You are welcome, dear.”
    I
    smiled at him and he wore a
    smile too. His eyes swept over my body,
    and I felt shy for a moment.

    I
    must be looking so ravishing to
    him. I was arrayed in a purple
    top and a black jean trousers. When I looked into the mirror a
    while ago, I’d made sure my
    make-ups were moderate. And
    my long, dark hair was well
    bonded with a material that
    matches my top.

    “It’s a pleasure meeting you
    again.”
    He extended his hand to
    me for a shake, and I quickly
    collected it warmly. He sat on the
    well-upholstered chair right in
    front of me. Afterwards, I signaled to the
    servers with my index finger up. I already asked the bartender to
    bring cold a juice, fried chicken
    and spiced fried rice if my guest
    arrived. Festus might reject the
    offer if I asked what he would
    like to take. He should be the one doing that, of course. I could hear Festus breathe
    heavily as he began to stare
    around the eatery. I supposed
    he was trying to avoid my gaze.

    Now I didn’t hide the fact that I
    wanted him. Even without me
    saying it, he should know from
    the way I was staring hotly at
    him. A female server came to the
    table with the dishes and drinks,
    and I caught her staring at
    Festus.

    “I’m done with you, thanks.” I
    glared at her and I quickly put
    on a smile when Festus was
    about to catch my eyes. Festus smiled. It seemed he saw
    what I did. I asked why he
    reacted like that. “Nothing,” he smiled again,
    “I
    was just wondering if you had a
    grudge against that lady.”
    “Don’t mind her,” I said, “ Didn’t
    you see how she placed the
    food wrongly on the tray? She is
    not competent at all.” Soon, we set our cutleries to
    start eating. My mouth seemed
    to reject the food probably
    because I had not expressed my
    feelings. I was just nibbling at
    the chicken with the knife. “Festus,” I called in a low tone. He revealed his face slowly, then
    I paused for a moment.

    “I would
    be happy if you can do
    something for me.”
    “What is that?”
    He looked
    puzzled. I began to caress my nape with
    my right palm in anxiety. Then I
    asked,
    “Don’t you mind if we
    become a very close friend?”
    I saw what seemed like a
    mischievous smile on his face. He bowed his head and showed
    back his face with a daring look. It was the look I had been
    anticipating – strong and
    passionate. I didn’t know where
    he suddenly gathered the
    courage. Our eyes became
    tangled. As if it was a spell, I couldn’t disengage myself. I
    became a captive to those
    dreamy eyes. And I could see
    bliss and harmony beckoning at
    me.

    “But, I was actually thinking we
    could be more than friends,” he
    said at last.

    “Really?”
    My voice fainted out,
    while my eyes were still trapped. I guessed he already had the
    evidence that I wanted more
    from him. My head nodded
    slowly without taking any
    permission from my brain.

    “The fact is that, I don’t just like
    you,”
    he said and paused. My
    heart began to sink like a Titanic
    ship, “But, I love you –
    irrespective of your personality.” “I … love you too,” I said
    passionately, almost under my
    breath.

    *FESTUS*
    Our eyes didn’t depart yet. I had
    felt as though I was going to die
    if I refused to burst out my
    feelings. What with the sexual
    eye-contact she had been
    stabbing at me. It was visible that I meant a lot more to her
    than her request. The jealousy
    that showed in her eyes
    towards that female server was
    too evident. With that, I could tell
    that she loved me. In the midst of our emotional
    gaze, I began to wonder if
    everything that just happened
    between us was a dream or
    fantasy. A girl I met yesterday ,
    and we could express a mutual love. This reminded me of
    ‘Romeo and Juliet’ who fell in
    love on the first day and had
    their first kiss on that same day.
    Our story was quite different –
    friendship on the first day,
    dating and love-declaration on
    the second day. Elizabeth’s case was totally
    different. We were friends for
    over two months before I could
    express my love to her. Even
    then she had told me she would
    be thinking over it. It was after three days she said YES to my
    proposal.

    “Guess what!”

    Sharon broke the
    long silence; not the gaze. “What is it?” I asked softly.
    To be contineud…
