Few weeks to our 1st semester exam I noticed that her attitude has changed and I always complained about it. She always got angry over little things and she always had a way on getting on my nerves but I remained calm. The one day at the night class, my phone rang and I picked it up swiftly knowing fully well that it was Nneky that was the caller
“Hi swity” I said with a nice voice
“Don’t call me that again, I just called to tell you that I am no longer interested in this relationship” She said “And please don’t bother calling me if I terminate this call” She added
“Baby please don’t do this to me, I swear to God I love you” I replied with tears almost in my eyes. Before I knew what was happening, she had already terminated the call. I didn’t know how I felt, I was between two worlds because I was thinking if I should just cry or smile. I was still holding the phone on my ear with my gaze fixed steadily to no specific object. It took the intervention of a friend to bring my memories back to the current situation of things
“Guy, you dey okay”? A friend asked me. I didn’t even know what to say, because I knew any statement that comes out from my mouth will be accompanied with tears. I only nodded and tried standing up, but it became another difficult task. I just found a way to lie on the floor of the building and it was the best option I had.
I think my room mates noticed that my mood and physical appearance last night was questionable.
“Wetin do you last night” Williams asked
“Omo that girl don leave me ooo” I said in a low voice. I actually expected a kind of consolation talk from him but before I realized the situation, he was laughing so hard and rolling on the floor with laughter. As if that wasn’t enough, he rushed out of the room and called other guys and it became a general laughter. I was so weak and lost appetite for days but a few guys tried consoling me. I didn’t bother reading again because I felt there wasn’t any need for that! I only slept in the hostel and all efforts to reach her back proved abortive and even when I logged in on 2go, I discovered she had blocked me already. It was really a difficult period for me, and it affected me so bad. The exams came, I wrote it and I was hopeful of a miracle. Few days to vacation, I woke up one morning and saw a text message on my phone, and it was from Nneky.
