“No this can’t be. It just can’t be. What have I done? This is a big mess.” I said it out loud that Moji heard me. “She took the phone from me, and read the message. “That’s Sandra right?” Moji asked me smiling. “Yes, that’s Sandra, and besides this isn’t funny. Why exactly is that smile on your face?” I was really nervous as I asked her the question. “I knew she was going to do this”. Moji said with so much assertiveness. “I don’t really get what you are saying. I really don’t understand it.” I said to her. . .
Moji: Number one, that girl is a slut, she has been in this game for too long already. She can only get pregnant if she wants to. If she is really pregnant, it will affect her studies more than it will affect yours. So it won’t be wise of her to get pregnant, and I doubt that she would. Number two, she doesn’t want you to go, she wants to keep you to herself, which means that she will do anything possible to hold you to herself.
Me: So you think she is lying?
Moji: I don’t think she is lying, I know she is lying.
Me: What if we think she is lying, and it turns out that she is telling the truth?
Moji: That is why we need to take the next step.
Me: The next step?
Moji: Yes, we have to prove that she is lying. I will take my phone and search for tips on pregnancy. Then you go ahead and investigate.
Me: She might be telling . . .
Moji: (cuts in) Are you ready to be a dad? If you are, tell me so I can quit trying to help you. And if you are not, man up, and let’s prove that idiot wrong.
Me: (fear was written all over me) seriously, I don’t know what to do, I don’t know what my mum will do if she finds out about this.
Moji: But Dapo, what came over you, how come you had unprotected sex with a girl like that? You could have contacted an STD in the process. You need to go for check up after sorting all this out.
Me: I won’t have STD in Jesus name. Moji, don’t wish me evil.
Moji: (Lowering her voice) God sees my heart that I want the best for you. I just want you to know in case you have a problem.
Me: Alright, let us solve this first before we even think of that. . .
It was time for sociology class. The man said some things about teenage pregnancy. What a coincidence that was. I looked at Moji’s face to see her reaction. She didn’t even look at me. Her eyes were so glued to the lecturer. We finished the lecture, and went back to the hostel.
When I got to the room, That was around 3:30pm, Everyone was in the room except Abdul and Matthew. Those two guys are always reading like bookworms. As Emeka will always tell them “Una wan carry first?” That means that University is not about being the best student overall, it’s about having good grades and graduating. That is just Emeka’s opinion anyway.
At first, when I saw Emeka and Olu in the room, I didn’t want to talk about my issue with Sandra. But since those guys are older and more experienced than me as far as the issue on ground is concerned, I decided to seek their opinion. . .
Me: Guys, please I have a problem and I really need your advice. I don’t know what to do.
Emeka: Watin dey do you self, you go just dey blow grammar like say na house of rep we dey.
Olu: Leave am, make hin dey show hinself.
Mayowa: Make una hear wetin hin wan talk naw, dis one wey hin call meeting like say hin wan share will.
Me: Guys, this is serious.
Emeka: I no fit see rious pass the one wey I don see. Na the problem wey you get make u tell me. Make I help you use elderly man eye look am.
Me: Sandra texted me yesterday that she is pregnant.
Emeka: Na which kind talk be that one, if u wan turn basket mouth wey dey crack joke, shey na this kind thing den dey use do comedy? Guy abeg if na joke stop am.
Olu: If I hear say that girl get belle, girl wey don know her way already. As you dey do her, she know wetin she go chop, wetin she go drink wey go make belle run.
Mayowa: Wait self, that girl no look like person wey dey do just one guy. When you slept with her, was she a virgin?
Me: Of course not.
Emeka: If that girl be virgin, it mean say my grandma self na virgin. See my guy, no fear. That girl no fit get belle. The way una dey talk am self, she no look like person wey get womb. Your tin don sweet am for body, she no wan make u go. Na why she dey lie that lie. Na so one girl do me for my area, wey dey lie give me say she get belle.

Olu: Emeka, abeg joor, make we hear word. Na everything don do you before. Dapo (Facing me) The way me dey look am, dat girl no get belle o. She just wan spoil your life ni. And I no wan make you gree for am.
Me: That is the same thing Moji said.
Mayowa: Are you crazy? You told Moji that Sandra is pregnant?
Me: It’s not like that, she kind of discovered by taking my phone to read the text.
My roommates said the same thing Moji said. Sandra was just trying to tie me down. “Now I have some investigations to do with Moji. I need to uncover her lies. She has to lose this game once and for all”. I thought to myself. . .
