It was 10am already, and I was still on my bed, sleeping. As the guys were laughing so loud, I had to wake up. Mayowa had been giving them the ‘party gist’. I pretended I was still sleeping as I listened to the conversation. . .
Mayowa: That girl for slap my face true true o, as d blackout happen, omo na so I tear race o.
Olu: It fit be say na you she go kiss na, anything fit happen o
Emeka: If I hear say dat girl kiss am, make God con help you make that girl hand strong well well, your face for tear reach back. . .
Emeka is a very funny guy, so when I heard what he said, I laughed loud, and they all knew I had been pretending all the while. Mayowa told the guys how scared he was when he thought he would be slapped. Then I narrated the part Mayowa didn’t get to see; how she tried to kiss me, and how I refused. When Emeka heard this, matters took another turn, as he took the issue personal. “Guy, you dey craze o, how girl go wan kiss you, you come dey form holy holy, your father well well, your father yaga yaga. Girl wey you for do strong thing, make she know say you be man, you con dey do like pussy. Guy, you don fall my hand. If to say na me, I for show her say Jesus no get tribal marks”. Emeka made me feel I did something bad, and he really succeeded with the help of Olu and Mayowa. I told them more about Sandra, how we met and how she was just behaving. “Abeg, shey u go gimme dat girl?” Olu asked, and Emeka replied him “Guy free that part 1 girl for our guy o, make him flex, make him dey alright”.
Seriously, the whole conversation we had that day made me regret just rejecting Sandra that day, I wished I had done more. “There will surely be another chance, and if the chance is not forth-coming, I will create it.” I said to myself. I had gotten her number already, so things won’t be difficult.
That day, there was an orientation programme for freshers, but Mayowa and I didn’t bother to go, since Emeka and Olu told us it wasn’t really important. They told us they were always saying ‘ase’ (irrelevant stuffs).
We continued our registration, going from library to the health center to the department to the faculty submitting one document or the other. It was really stressful. We were asked to pay dues to the faculty and departments and we did. After like 2 weeks, lectures were going to start. So many materials were introduced to us, and we bought the ones we could. Lectures were going to commence, my university life was about to start in full.
