EPISODE 26 As written by Odeyemi Pelumi (@zoepearl) Sandra’s problem was becoming rather unbearable for me. She was always stalking me, and she was really irresistible. What made me put myself into the whole mess was the misconception I had about Aramide which turned out to be nothing but a mirage. But then, the whole…

EPISODE 25 “I’M A TWIN”. When I read the message, I was much more confused. Even if it was just mere resemblance, and it wasn’t really Aramide, I heard them call her ‘Mide’. “Is this one of the plans of this goat in sheep’s clothing to deceive me?” I thought to myself.   I told…

EPISODE 24 I was really angry. The next day, I went for classes, but I discovered that I had lost concentration. I decided to share the problem with Mayowa, Olu and Emeka. At least, a problem shared they say is half solved. I narrated the whole story to them, and the conversation was as expected….

EPISODE 23 Finally, we got to new buka. Guess who I saw drinking and dancing with different guys. It was the love of my life – Aramide. I was so bewildered. I was confused. I was perplexed. “It can’t be her!!!” I was so confused that I just kept repeating the same thing. “It can’t…

EPISODE 22 As written by ODEYEMI PELUMI (@zoepearls) As she picked the call, what I heard was “so you still have my number?” That’s Sandra for you, she says it the way she sees it, she doesn’t form. . . Me: Sandra, you see I’ve been very busy with school work, practicals and all. It’s…

EPISODE 21 As written by ODEYEMI PELUMI (@zoepearls) The friendship between Mayowa and I was put to test. Mayowa didn’t like Aramide, he isn’t Godly. His name “Oluwamayowa” which means “God brought joy” shows his background. “Adedeji Oluwamayowa Samuel”. Samuel is his baptismal name which means he had been baptized. But all he does is…

EPISODE 20 As written by ODEYEMI PELUMI (@zoepearls) “Do you have a consistent prayer life?” She asked. When I heard the question, it was as if I had been dreaming all the while. What I thought the question would be was “do you love me?” But come to think of it, how can a girl…

THE PAINFUL PLEASURE (TPP) 19

EPISODE 19 As written by ODEYEMI PELUMI (@zoepearls) The next day was a Tuesday, and that day was bible study in my church. I didn’t want to go, as I could have just stayed in the room to read. Because that was a chance to see Aramide again. I wore my only and best pair…

EPISODE 18 As written by ODEYEMI PELUMI (@zoepearls) To my surprise, it was Moji. That was around 6pm. “Why exactly is she calling me?” I said to myself. I picked the call. . . Me: Moji, whatsup naw, so good to hear from you. Moji: yeah right. Where are you please? Me: My room. Moji:…

EPISODE 17 As written by ODEYEMI PELUMI (@zoepearls) “So what have you been eating, all the while? Do you cook?” Moji asked me. “I cook a lot, but my foodstuffs have finished already, I only have small garri left. I don’t even know what to eat tonight.” I answered. “Wow, that’s serious. Please, flash me…

EPISODE 16 As written by ODEYEMI PELUMI (@zoepearls) When we got to the class, what Abdul told us turned out to be true. We got to the class 7:55am, and the whole ‘lecture theatre’ was filled to the brim. Some people sat on the floor, while others were standing, holding their notes. The lecturer was…
