stood with me and we became the most
envied best friends on Campus, am everywhere
Deborah is. We went to library together,
lectures and then return home together.
We understood each other so well even
in sweeping and mopping the room, I
go tell you straight. I no like dirty, and
Deborah is clean. We were two friends
made in heaven and brought down to
Earth, I provided financially for both of
us, ’cause my Monthly allowee from my
dad will make you think like am working
somewhere when you see the alerts. I
bought text books and everything for two,
I had too many clothes to even think of
buying one myself. All thanks to Anderson,
I no wan just pick the dude call, am just
too ashamed. There was this guy disturbing
Deborah in Campus for relationship but
Deborah refused to accept him, I come
dey wonder why? He begged me to plead
with Deborah that he has good intentions
Me: babe, give the guy chance na. The guy dey hawk your matter for campus.
Deborah: which guy sef you dey talk about?
Me: Jay na, that fine bobo wey dey for medicine.
Deborah: you funny oh, that guy fit hawk my matter?
Me: the guy love you.
Deborah: I no need children love, I dey twenty seven years now. Wetin I need na marriage and money to fund my education, my mother and younger ones look up to me.
Me: you mean say na you dey train yourself for university?
Deborah: yes, no be everybody dey lucky like you. I no get time for kabukabu love, abeg.
was shocked when Deborah revealed
such to me, she always go to work immediately
we returned from lectures, I was thinking
she went to her boyfriend’s house not
knowing she was doing part-job to support
herself. There this man supporting her
financially, because her job can’t handle
some expenses in school, so the man
was the one supporting her. Immediately,
I started helping her in those bills she
broke up with the man, I was surprised
and asked to know why she did it. She
told me she has no future with the man
that he should now face his family and
leave her yansh alone, Deborah sha…
During the examination period Deborah
focus in her reading with zeal that I have
never seen in my entire life, she even
wanted to quit her part job but her boss asked her not
to that she should take her time and prepare
for school that her job await her. I find
the elder sister I wanted in Deborah, after
the examination I begged her to follow me
home, she couldn’t refuse me because
I be her one and only girlfriend na. She
agreed to spend some days and then
with me and then travel home to meet
her family. Sarah was asking me who the
big aunty was that she hoped I haven’t
brought someone that won’t chance her
from marrying my brother, med girl. When
I told her Deborah was older than my lil
brother and it won’t be possible. Sarah
became friends with the person she was
seeing as enemy before, my dad came
during the week Deborah was with us and
I introduced him to her. I could see that
my dad was eating her up with his eyes,
Deborah was beautiful no doubt.my dad
even started calling her Debby. Ehnn..
he never take permission oh!
Deborah: your dad is cute ooh!
Me: yes na, my papa na the finest man on Earth.
Deborah: close your mouth joor.
Me: you know how many years him dey?
Deborah: thirty or twenty nine?
Me: aahh! when them come born me na? My dad married my mom after she got pregnant with me. Them be childhood sweetheart, he was twenty years when they gave birth to me.
Deborah: and you be nineteen years now oh!
Me: I be big gal.
Deborah: commot there joor.
could see Deborah liked my dad, she just
won’t stop asking me about him. And my
dad always find an excuse to come home
those days, as I a sharp girl I knew it was
because of Deborah. My dad called me
to his room and made his feelings towards
Deborah known to me, asking me if he
can marry Deborah. I was like lol daddy,
You no suppose take permission before

travelled after spending a week with us
reluctantly, love in the air faahh!!
