Nina went to check on Chizoba but she wasn’t around so she decided to
go to her room. After a while she went to have her evening bath and wore her
night gown wondering if she should just go to Dennis’s lodge and see what was
keeping him busy that he didn’t care that they haven’t seen for days. It was
7pm, her roommates were conversing as usual and she couldn’t stop thinking about what Dennis
might be doing. She didn’t even care that she was
leaving in her night gown and robe,she just started leaving like that…
Amanda where are you going?
Kaycee: like that?
Nina: yes so? There’s a bike outside, I can
take it straight to his lodge.
Fat kc: okay, let me tell
him to wait for you.hey, hey! Bike man! Wait up someone is coming down to meet
Bike man 🙁 screaming from
downstairs) make it quick!
Kaycee: okay! Hurry Amanda.
Nina: See… I don’t even have time to change
to something else. Bye!
we do crazy things in the name of love, although where their school was,was in
a village that people might not really notice but it was really an
inappropriate dressing. What if something had happen to her, she’ll say she’s checking if
her boyfriend is playing games? That’s if she would be alive to testify.
there and saw all of them outside,it was so dark she didn’t know if Dennis was
sitting there,the bike passed them to his lodge. He recognized her and went
Tony: who is that person?
Dennis: no way! That can’t be her, let me go check (leaving
them where they are seated).
Ifeanyi: who? Amanda? That’s impossible.
Dennis: (approaching them)
Amanda? What happened?
Nina: nothing, I wanted to
surprise you. What were you doing there?
Dennis: I was with Tony,
Ekene and his sisters .
Dennis: you went out of the
school compound like this?
Nina: yeah but I didn’t get to the gate like this,
a bike came to the hostel so I took it down here.
Dennis: wow that was risky.
You should have told me you wanted to come, I would have come to the hostel to
pick you myself.
Nina: then it won’t be a surprise anymore.
Dennis: please don’t do that again. I’ll get you myself.
Ifeanyi 🙁 entering the
room)hey dude! Is she the….waoh! You are glowing in that night gown.
Ifeanyi: now I see what Dennis
is seeing. I hope there is no problem?
Nina 🙁 laughing) no there
isn’t. And what are you seeing?
Ifeanyi: don’t get me wrong, you are
always beautiful but there’s this glow about you right now, I’m seduced.
Dennis: alright Ifeanyi,
Ifeanyi 🙁 laughing) what?!
My dear, I’ll be back (leaves the room).
Dennis: have you eaten?
Nina: yeah, I ate peppered
Dennis: peppered rice?
Nina: yes, my friend
Dennis: in the hostel? Who?
Nina: yes, Chidera.
Dennis: okay, come here. I
Nina: yeah right!
Nina: and you didn’t do anything about it?
Dennis: I thought you
needed your space or something.
Nina: did I tell you I
Dennis: but I asked you if
you wanted to come and your response felt like that.
Nina: okay! You win.i’m here now.
Dennis: and I want all of
Nina 🙁 smiling) okay…
start kissing and holding each other and talking love talk, then ifeanyi walks
in. It wasn’t fair to ifeanyi with Nina
coming unannounced but he didn’t seem to mind since he
loved her company anyways…
Ifeanyi: okay, let the
smooching end I’m around.
Nina 🙁 laughing)
Dennis: who is this friend
by the way?
Nina: her name is Chidera,
she’s in my department.
Ifeanyi: is she single?
Nina: I think so.why?
Ifeanyi: I need a
Dennis: don’t mind him, he has a new
Ifeanyi: um sort of.
Nina: (talking to Dennis)
have you met her?
Dennis: yeah but they weren’t dating then, (whispering
in Nina’s ear) she’s very tall, taller than Ifeanyi.
Ifeanyi: what did he say?
Dennis: I told her she’s in engineering.
Ifeanyi: do you have to
whisper in her ears?
Dennis: is it yours? She’s our level as well.
Nina: oh really?
Ifeanyi: yeah don’t worry, one of these days
you’ll meet her.
Ifeanyi: mehn, guy I’m hungry. I need to fix
some noodles, are you interested?
Nina: um, no thank you.
Ifeanyi: are you watching
Nina: no, I’m just full.
Ifeanyi: how about you
Dennis: I’m good.
goes to the passage to prepare the meal for himself and Dennis started telling
Nina how Ifeanyi’s girlfriend face looks
like a turkey…
day Nina went to school and received lectures as usual, after lectures she went
to the hostel to see Ernestina and then went to her room. Ernestina’s roommates are very
friendly, even friendlier than Ernestina herself. They cook together, discuss
together and even work out together since Ernestina is so particular about her
Nina: hey Tina? How are you
doing? Hi everyone!
Ernestina: I’m fine.
Nina:I didn’t see you at the house
Ernestina: that’s because you didn’t come to I and Tony’s room. He told me you were
Nina: okay, are you going
Ernestina: yeah, I’m going
back to Tony’s house.
Ernestina: why uh?
Nina: not really, I just
thought you’ll be around so I can come to your room and stay for a while.
Ernestina: uh sorry maybe
Ifeoma: oh! you could join
us when we work out.
Nina: you guys work out?
Ifeoma: yeah, at night most
of the time.
Ernestina: Amanda? Workout?
Nina: what’s that suppose to mean?
Ofcourse I can workout.
Ernestina: I’m not saying you can or don’t work out,I’m just wondering how you
are going to wake up that early.
Nina: but Ifeoma said it’s mostly at night.
Ifeoma: actually is in the
morning but we do it at night these days because of Ernestina always going to
her boyfriend’s place.
Nina: oh okay. Whenever you
guys are at it let me know.
Ernestina: okay, I’ll call you. I’ve got to go, take care.
All: bye! Buy something for
Blessing: so Amanda I guess
you’ll be leaving since
Ernestina has gone?
Nina: uh yeah I guess.
Ifeoma: so we are not human
Nina: ofcourse you are, is
just that I’ve got things to do.
Blessing: okay but in case
you need someone to talk to, you can always come here.
Ifeoma: and Ernestina doesn’t have to be here before
you come and stay.
Nina: alright, thanks.
wondering if Ernestina’s roommates were too nice
or Ernestina wasn’t being a friend to her.
She has been noticing that Ernestina wasn’t really comfortable with her and she kept wondering why. She has been
trying to be her friend since she is dating Dennis’s best friend, she felt
they could be like good friends and have something in common. What she didn’t know was why Ernestina
was behaving the way she was behaving was because Chize(Tony’s cousin) was her very good
friend and Chize has a crush on Dennis. Although Nina was suspecting that
something must have happened for Ernestina to answer the way she answered
Dennis when he asked her to meet his wife. It seems like Dennis didn’t tell them he had a
girlfriend because they were all surprise to see Nina. So if Ernestina was being
friends to Nina, Chize might not like it because of her feeling for Dennis…
