It’s around 9’O clock in the evening, the sky is lit by the splendor of the Moon and the glory of the stars, cold wind is blowing; this kind of Night is made for loving, ideas came to my mind also did flourishing and ecstatic feeling. I felt lost, alone, torn! Damn! I need love, I thought to myself. I decided to take a walk maybe I can find love, apparently, I’ve been on this quest for a while now. Will I find love tonight?
I started wandering from my hostel, Biobaku… to Kofo then Amina – I should see a girl on the quest for love too, I thought to myself, maybe we could bond…I saw none.
From Amina, I went to New Hall. New hall was crowded as usual and everyone I saw in New Hall seemed to be on different quests, they all seem hungry for the same shii… they want to knack (and getting a place to do this on campus is a problem for most UNILAG boys).
From New Hall to Moremi, Moremi was depressing; is it a crime not to have a car?
Moremi girls made me give up on love and refocus on hustle, they made me feel like there is no love for trekking Niggas; they dissed niggas on 2 legs and drooled over niggas on 4 legs.
Men it’s time to go back to my hostel, show my bed and pillow some love, I bet they miss me already because I’m not usually out this late. I shouldn’t have come out in the first place.
“Oh! Hold On, there is one hostel left, Honours, should I go there or nah?” I could feel my legs murmur: nigga we don’t wanna go there – This Hostel is the deserted island on Campus and it’s not every UNILAG Boy usual route, except there’s a special parole, I heard a lot happens in that pathway.
Going there would be arduous, so I decided to shred the idea. I was about to leave for my hostel when I decided to pause and just do a re-look of my environment… just then did a car oozing luxury park beside me asking for directions, inside this car was an adorably-light skinned-fresh-to-death woman, as hot as the Sun; I couldn’t stop looking, wealth dripping off her, Sweet Jesus! I was beauty struck.
“Hello Young Man, please how can I get to Biobaku Hall?” I was still deep in scrutiny, I almost forgot the direction to my Hostel. I managed to stutter: that’s my hostel and that’s where I’m headed.
“Young Man, let help each other, I’ll give you a ride” When I heard this, I promised you, every muscle in my body just wanted to sit beside this ‘Woman-Lady’. This moment I forgot all the stories I’ve heard about rich fine women using young nigga for ritual. I didn’t even think about it nor hesitated. I jumped in and sat down pusillanimously.
We started our journey to Biobaku, She wore this skimpy black gown, she was ravishing in it and I couldn’t take my eyes off her. She caught me staring on various occasion, she began to feel uncomfortable, so she decided to start a gist.
She told me her name, Mrs. Victoria Williams, I told her mine. She’s in her 40’s, she’s been married for 19 years, she has just one son, and she is a financial consultant. She talked about having issues in her matrimony and she might be divorced soon.
I looked at her despondently, it’s quite sad that a woman who is that beautiful is going through hardship in her marriage; I mean she deserves the best of everything. I commiserated with her, said some soothing words to her, I guess it helped, as she smiled faintly.
As we were getting close to my hostel, she made some oral communications that thrilled me to bits “you seem like a nice guy, you’re calm, the way you look at me makes me feel like I’m 16 again, you made me blush and for a moment I forgot my worries” I was happy AF deep within me, so she liked the way I was staring at her!
We’re outside my hostel now “I will like to see you again Young Man, will you call me?” as I was still trying to figure out an answer to this billion dollar question…she gave me her card and softly she said “Call Me”, softly I replied too with a faint-hearted smile ‘alright, goodnight’.
Now I’m back in my room, lying on the bed, wearing my once in a decade smile, I could hear the beat my heart was producing and I was thinking out loud like I am Ed Sheeran, have I found love or I’m still on my quest?
