I got over him finally

I knew my crush on Mr. OF wouldn't last. Anyways, he called last night after so long, like a month. I was driving, so i didn't even look to see who was calling, just flipped my phone open to answer the call. All of a sudden, he was yelling "Ore mi, ore mi" (My friend, my friend) like 4 or 5 times. I was surprised, before i realized who it was. Anyways, he sha gave some lame excuse, like they always do, that he's been so busy, that he's found himself procrastinating a lot lately, that he went out of town (job-related) and some cock and bull. Anyways, let me not lie, i was happy to hear his voice, and happier to know he was doing fine, no bad news 'cos the week before, on his facebook profile, he wrote that he was confused. Anyways, i already got a grip on myself and got over the huge crush i had on him. It got so bad at a point, that my emotions had started taking over logical reasoning, that was when i called my youth pastor, for advise. The flesh was already ruling over the Spirit. Sad, i know but i had to admit it to myself in order to have peace. Now from my side sha, we're just cool friends. Anything may develop later, if God wills, but i'll just treat him like i do my other close paddies.

Okay, i'll try my possible best to type out our convo last nite. I'll be so derepped if he ever stumbles on this blog. All my "ashiri" (secrets) will be out. No more shakara/ posing for me again. Oh, before i begin, i did something stupid 2 weeks ago, when the crush was really intense, i told my bestfriend whose friend is OF's friend, to find out if he has a girlfriend. I know i behaved like a coward, and that was so stupid. I told my bestfriend to make it underG runz, just b'cos ...

OF: Ore mi, ore mi (5x)
Me: (Speechless)
Me: Are u okay? Is everything alright?
OF: Yes, i am. Sorry that i haven't spoken to u in like a minute.
Me: That's okay (big lie), just thot u were super busy (like we all aren't). Anyways, how're u doing?

We yarned some random rubbish, talked about the Ribena he was drinking, school, work. Don't know what led to it, but the following convo ensued and that was how i found out if he had a girl or not. Now, i consider it useless info 'cos i really dunno what i'm gonna do with it now that i know.

Me: Those raps (words used to woo girls) won't get u any girl o. Do u need me to supply u with some raps? See, i'm the nicest gal u'd ever meet, offering to supply u raps free of charge.
OF: I don't need any more raps jo. I have enough and besides, i don't need raps to win a gal. They just fall for me like that.
Me: Puhlease... In ur dreams, right?
OF: Infact, i don't think i used any raps on my Ex. I knew her for a while, we were friends and things just fell into place and we started dating. Since then, i've not really yarned any girl.
Me: HA! You've not yarned any girl since then? Is u gay? (i know it's gramatically incorrect, but that's exactly what i said)
OF: (Laughed long and hard) Yes, me is gay. Abeg jo, i'm as straight as they come.
OF: How are your husbands, kids?
Me: They're doing very well.

That's the "koko" (main point) of our convo. I hope his friend hasn't asked him if he has a girl yet? He may just put 2 'n 2 together to know i'm the one behind it. I really don't care if he knows or not. Anyways, that's the gist. OF if you ever get to read this, i'm sure u'd think i'm nuts, but feelings are there for a reason. Anyways, i'm prepping for the ultimate Scrabble competition with Professor tomororow. Have a nice weekend folks.

Bijou...hope you aren't planning to play "Ashiri" cause i just checked the scrabble dictionary and my golly my system froze! As per OF reading your blog, i refuse to agree you are over him ooo nothing on there sends that message... Meanwhile or by the way (use which ever you prefer)...what is OF's Phone number and Email address...I'll like to share the link to a blog with him... he might find it interesting and who knows maybe finally we will hear "THE COCK CROW AT DAWN".

What a way to pull out very important info - I should try that sometimes LOL - but Im sure the knowledge of him being single has triggered as a relaxant to your crush - but I have a feeling that you are still feeling him but have chosen to lead with your head and not your heart - and It does help coming across the previous blog you recorded on men and their feelings - YOu are a proper lady - You have not allowed your feelings over run your sense in terms of --- And I am glad of your new found hop.

@Temmy: Thank u jere, my wondeful egbon. If he knows, so what? That's my atttitude now. Thanks for ur support, i'll show Miggie who i am.

@Teva: Ur secret's safe with moi. I'm happy u can relate to this post, at least i know no be me alone.

@Miguel: Or did OF send u to me? I said i'm over him, u're saying otherwise. Abeg, what makes u think so? Anyways, he's now in the "good friends" category. If OF finds out, Miguel u're gonna be in hot egusi soup, 'cos i'll know that's the work of ur hands.

@Diamond: Shebi i told u i had repented the last time, as long as u don't break our agreement, i'd be a good girl. This is the new and improved Bijoux.

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

LOASCM: That's what we call diplomacy. I've started learning that, especially with the kind of family i have. U know, i don't know if this info "has triggered as a relaxant to my crush," 'cos now that i know, i don't even know what to do with the info. I still like him and hold a soft spot for him, but that's about it. I tell u, it wasn't easy, i felt like telling him how i felt, and some silly (i consider them silly now) stuff like that, but let's just say thank God i didn't do anything stupid.

Miguel said...

Belle said...

sounds like you still like the dude a little...which is to be expected, i guess.
The guy doesn't sound serious... so it looks to me like he did you a favor! count your lucky stars...

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

@Vera: U just wait and lemme kickbox that ur big backside. Ordinary step and sculpt, u almost dies. Na me u dey call big fat chieken?

@Bukola omo mummy: Yes nau, i was looking out for myself, but now there's nothing really for me to do with the info. Thanks, and you have a more blessed week too.

@Belle: "He did me a favor" how? Don't quite get what u mean here Belle. Yes i still like him just as a good friend.

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

Belle said...

as in he could have taken you for a ride...

NaijaBloke said...

Hahahahah Xoxox ..u r not so over him jo..I will second Miguel on this issue.

Dipo Tepede said...

My dear Bijou,

Wow, a self fulfilling prophesy but a step towards healing!

All this guy needs to do is to feed that emotion and you are gone again.

You really need to avoid him for a while and stop deceiving yourself that you are over him. The wound is not healed yet.

Just avoid him dear and substitute him with more spiritual thing. God will give you the strenght to handle it!
