Things are happening in this small town of mine. Imagine, infact can u just imagine that yeye boy, infact he is not only yeye he's a nonsense boy sef, may indecisions not finish him. Y'all would be wondering who i'm abusing like this, it's Dave. Let me tell it like it is, 'cos that's what i always do. I don't sugar coat stuff. I'm so angry, ehn, you'd think this issue is about me. Abeg, which one be my own sef? Why would my blood pressure rise on top of someone else's issue?
I've 2 very good friends, T and J in this my little town. BTW, J passed her RN (Registered Nurse) exam, Thank God. I'm so happy for her, u'd think i was the one that passed. The gal has been through a lot, a real hustler. God answered our prayers, 'cos it sure wasn't easy. Next thing is to get a good job, then the big bucks'll start rolling in. Anyways, I digress like i always do.
Dave, is from South Africa, (he's black) but went to college in Jamaica. After his undergrad, he came to the States in 2004 for his Masters degree. To cut the long story short sha, i noticed he was tryna get close to my friend, T. Everytime i asked T, she denied it. As u know say, no be yesterday they born me nau, me i sabi say sumtin' dey go on. I kept my cool and fashied (ignored) them.
Whenever T and I were studying in the lounge, Dave would show up. Next thing, my gal would excuse herself and wouldn't show up till 2-3 hours later. In as much as i wanted to ask questions as to her whereabouts, I kept my cool and resisted the urge. This continued for weeks, until they realized that afterall, we're no longer high school kids; so they'd sit in the lounge (disturbing me while i'm studying, if i might add) and be doing their mushy stuff for hours. I thought my gal was shy before, but i don't think so again 'cos she'd sit on Dave's lap, hug him like her life depended on the hug and they'd be kissing and making noise to disturb my studious self.
I wasn't hating o, but i was suspicious of this sudden love. As in, when did they get to meet? For how long? Are things not moving too fast? I cautioned my gal gently, 'cos i didn't want to sound like a numero uno hater. After a month of whirlwind loving, Dave and T broke up. Actually, to rephrase that, Dave broke up with T on the basis that after his Masters (in Computer Science & Security) program, he's likely to go back to Jamaica to take up the job offer he had before leaving, and he wouldn't want them to get so emotionally involved.
Whatdaheck?!?!? I was pissed. Infact, i was more than pissed. What kind of lame excuse is that? He was tryna sound considerate and nice, and T believed every word of what that liar said. Okay, think about it, in this present century, do they still put job offers on hold for people? Of course not! Only if na ur papa get the company. 2nd thing, why would he want to leave Yankee for Jamaica after 2yrs plus the fact that all his family's here? What i think most rational people in his situation would try to do, is that they'd try to get a job here.
My school, being very small, with everyone knowing everyone, na so tori dey begin to flow. People knew them as a couple already. The guy flirts with girls all the time, even in the presence of my gal. My gal had and i think still has strong feelings for this yam head. In all honesty, she wanted it to work, she tried to let him realize that u can't plan for tomorrow just yet. Live each day as it comes. I was her main advisor, infact the only advisor. After the break up, he'd still call and they'd be chatting into the wee hours of the nite.
Now, he wants to come back. He's begging my friend to be his girlfriend again. Apparently, we realized he got a faculty position at our school. As the chief advisor, I advised her against it. Now that there are many applications from prospectives coming in for my gal, this olodo (dummy) wants to be in the way of her blessing. God forbid. Tufiakwa! We no go see such kain thing! Infact, she already conducted the first interview on one of 'em and is in the process of hiring sef. A friend loves at all times, a friend sticks closer than a brother, abi no be so? How nice would it have been if they had been together, even before he knew what God had in store for him. They would have weathered the storm together then, and be counting their blessings now.
In my opinion, this boy would only love her when things are rosy. He claimed to love her dearly in '04, but this perfect love couldn't cast out all his fear of the unknown. Abeg, that is counterfeit love right there.
On midnight gister, he's doing ok. Just that i don't entertain his midnite gist again, so most of the time when he calls, i'm in zzzzzzzzzzland, and i'm terrible at returning calls, even though we have the same service provider and it's free o. School's starting soon and i'm excited, but i know the drill, i'd be waiting for it to be over after the 2nd week of classes.
My best friend T is going to the State capital for her internship in the governor's office. My gal will be rubbing shoulders with those in the corridors of power. I'm so proud of her. She and one other gal were chosen to represent the school. My other best friend, J will be working in NY. So i've to try to find at least one other best friend this semester. If not, i'll make do with my acquaintances a.k.a. hang out buddies and try to like them.
P.S: Y'all should show my gal luv on her page. Right now, there's a juicy story she needs advice on. You know what they say, "2 heads are better than one." Here's the link to her page again www.sapphireaster.blogspot.com.
