Aside writing stories, I think I enjoy singing in the shower more than anything else and my roommate always make sarcastic jokes about that. Jokes like,” when are you going to release your bathroom album boy?” And “shey una no go feature Justin Bieber like this?” I however see these comments as encouragements. After morning shower, I took my time to dress up since there won’t be any morning lecture to attend on Valentine’s day. I searched my wardrobe frantically for what to wear. To put on red and white isn’t even one of it. After the frantic search for what to wear, I decided to wear a red t-shirt and a blue crazy jean and it really looked good on me. I stormed out of my hostel and bought a flower for Ayokanmi along the way. I presented it to her at the skyway as soon as we saw each other.

“Awwwn… Thanks darling,” Ayokanmi blushed and hugged me. We hugged for about three minutes when Mary came to intrude.

“Ah ahn Ayokanmi! Leave am nah, e don do.” She said in Pidgin English.

“Look who’s pained now,” Ayokanmi replied jokingly.

“Mtcheeew,” Mary hissed and left for BLL angrily. I could read jealousy written all over her. From the first day I met her, I’ve had this feeling that she doesn’t like me but who cares? I just wanna have a good time with my bestie.

Slowly but eventually, Ayokanmi released me and headed for the bank area. She told me earlier that she’d be visiting the ATM gallery later in the day. “Don’t forget about our date this evening.” She reminded me and then left for the bank area. I smiled sheepishly.

Since there was no one to talk to, I helped myself by seating on one of the vacant seats at the skyway. Some other freshmen were there too. Just then Fred, Paul and Kenny came to sit beside me and started their discussion. I had seen them earlier coming out of the biology laboratory.

“I seriously don’t understand the concept of what everyone is celebrating today. It seems a lot of fakeness and lies to me.” Paul said and shrugged his shoulders.

“Do you even understand the general concept of Valentine?” Fred quizzed and tapped Paul repeatedly on the shoulder.

“Yeah, sure. I do understand the general concept of Valentine but what I don’t understand is what everyone is celebrating today.” Paul paused and then continued. “What exactly are they celebrating? Don’t even tell me they’re celebrating love because ninety five percentage of people ain’t even in love. They’re only in lust.”

Kenny turned facing Fred. “You can’t even give proper love, you can’t give your commitment to your partner, never. You will never pledge your alliance to a weaker person around you, you will never level mountains and dry oceans for the one you claim to love, you can never turn the desert into rainforest and rain forest into a desert for the one you’re in a relationship with. You can never take a bullet for your lover. So what exactly are you now capping about valentine? Just tell me.”

It was now obvious to me that Kenny and Paul were attacking Fred. I just stood beside them listening to whatever they had to say.

“You’re not affectionate… Not one bit. Your romantic status is on a shaky level. You know that. All it takes for you to get tired of that girl is for you to have sex with her.” Paul added and he seemed to have nailed the point.

“What’s funny about these girls is that, they know that you are with that guy because he has money. They know that they are with that guy because he’s cute without brain. What are you all now shouting about this morning Fred? Does that even look like love to you?” Kenny whispered buttressing Paul’s point.

“Your relationship is not a priority to you because, you do not even love yourself. Bringing someone else into that space is because you want something like sex, money, punching bag, a cook, show off… And I believe your love story will soon come to an end. There’s nothing special about today for both of you, you are not even married yet. Each of you know how clueless you are, you just don’t have any idea how big it is.” Paul finalized.

Just then, Abdumaleek our class representative came to announce the commencement of a class at science lecture theater.

The class ended so quickly and the day seemed a great deal. I walked down to the bank area to withdraw some cash that I will use for my date with Ayokanmi. I went back to my hostel to prepare. Once it was ten minutes past six pm, I had a quick shower and changed my clothes. I combed my air and added few perfume oils to smell nice. I headed to Ayokanmi’s hostel to pick her up and when I got there, I was amazed at what I saw.

Ayokanmi’s golden ringlets tumbled down her shoulders and back, bouncing with the strides of her long legs. The sun, as if programmed to do so, splashed into her pale face, causing her shadow to spill out and display her thin frame on the passage behind her. She had a smile on her face too. As her brown eyes seemed to gleam across the corridor, she had a beam of joy dashing inside of her. She took a finger and brushed her black colored hair aside as she walked. The bright red lipstick on her lips matched the red jacket she wore. The heals on her feet clicked and clacked along the hostel corridors. Her blue purse rested between her fingers, carrying the items she needed for the outing.

“Don’t be gone for too long Ayokanmi,” Mary shouted from her room.

“Alright, I won’t…” Ayokanmi replied and smiled at her.

We set out to the club after our Uber arrived. When we got there, we met some lovers there too. Some were in the swimming pool, some were at the suya stand, some were playing snookers while some sat in the club. Slowly, we found our way to the club auditorium. The light in the club was dim just the way I like it with arrays of lights flashing across the DJ stand.

“Ladies stop fronting, guys stop slacking…. Get on the dancefloor.” The DJ announced over the speaker. ED Sheeran’s perfect was being played. The speakers volume were moderate. Not too loud and not too low. The music was soft too, allowing me to get lost in the moment. The setting was just perfect. I ordered for two plates of rice with coleslaw and valeta fruit wine. Ayokanmi and I both sat down at a table and enjoyed our date.

“Thank you very much for today,” Ayokanmi said as we made to leave the club.

“Don’t mention…” I winked and held her close to me then stretched my arms around her waist.

“Awwww…. They look cute together,” a lady of our age bracket told her female partner and they exchanged a kiss. Ayokanmi goggled and I smiled.
