Tunde: Hey babe, how did it go with Oyin?
Zoe: It went well, I guess. She was pretty pleasant when I told her I’m not the one she’s looking for. Oh, BTW, I’m a lesbian and I usually bring my girls to sleep over at your place because it’s discreet enough
Tunde: What…? Oh! You told her that? You’re insane, Zoe. Did she buy it?
Zoe: After I hit on her? Damn right she did. I was probably a guy in my past life.
Tunde: LOOOOOL. Oh she’s calling me now. BRB.
I was about to fix myself a drink when my phone rang. It was Alex. I was supposed to have called her to tell her everything that had happened but the day ran so fast and I sort of forgot.
‘Zoe, are you home?’
‘Please come over’ and she hung up.
I wondered what the problem was. Alex is the stronger one between us but when she sounds like she did over the phone, complete with sniffles, I knew something was definitely up.
I quickly packed my overnight bag filled with my clothes for work tomorrow and my emergency makeup bag. To be honest, I was scared. The last time she sounded like this was when her dad had a heart attack and we were in school at the time.
I drove like the devil was after me to her house in Chevron Estate and let myself in as I had a key. My girl was curled in a foetal position crying like somebody died.
“Baby what happened? What the hell happened?”
‘I caught him with another girl. They were having sex and he was fucking her like he didn’t have any care in the world.’
I sighed. Alex had just started dating this guy- her first boyfriend after years of being a lesbian and she had obviously just found out how much Nigerian guys could be dicks are.
I almost wanted to welcome her to the world of heartbreak in the hands of men but it wasn’t the right time.
“How? Weren’t you at work the whole time?”
‘I left work early because he had not been feeling well and wanted to see if he was better. The door was open and I heard noises coming from the kitchen. They were having sex in the fucking kitchen, Zoe. I made sure they saw me then I left. How could he do this to me? I thought we were good. Sex between us was so amazing.’ And she started bawling all over again.
I held her till she drifted off to sleep. Seeing as she’s way bigger than I am, I decided against carrying her to the bedroom and got a duvet to cover her with. I knew she’d wake up with a head splitting headache and I left a bottle of water and some Aspirin by her side. Just then, the doorbell rang. Standing at the door was the reason I was in Alex’s house.
“You better have a damn good reason for showing up here. I just finished rocking her to sleep and I have no intention of waking her up.”
‘Zoe, please listen. It was a mistake. The girl is my ex and when she came over, I don‘t know what happened. I didn’t mean to hurt Alex. I love her.’
“Good. Now take your substandard love and get the hell out of here. If she wants to see you, she’ll contact you. God night!’ And with that, I slammed the door in his face. I got in just in time to hear my phone ring. It was Tunde. I knew why he was calling but I wasn’t going to pick. The time wasn’t right.
