Days went by; still I heard nothing from Mrs. Williams. Weeks rolled by; Mrs. Williams still didn’t call. It was getting close to a month when I decided to give up, I decided to let go, and then I blamed it on fate. “Maybe nothing is meant to happen between us.”
Forgetting her was not easy for me, I just kept remembering the night I saw her, and how she swept me off my feet and made me crack a little fat in my trousers. Forgetting her was hard men, believe me it was hard.
How did I misplace the card she gave me? I stopped blaming fate and started blaming myself; maybe I was a little bit oblivious about it. My heart was sinking; that I might not see her again gave me heartache, just like when my first love broke my heart I couldn’t eat well (I used to eat like 5 6 times a day but it dropped to 3). I couldn’t sleep well too, I usually don’t dream but somehow Mrs. Williams has crept into my dream some few nights.
It was very early in the morning, I was still sleeping sef when my phone rang and my ringtone penetrated my soul thereby forcing me to jump out of bed. You remember my ringtone yeah? I don’t know why or how, I just felt there was something different about the way my phone rang that morning probably because I dreamt about her all night, maybe it was Mrs. Williams that was calling, that was how I felt.
With my sleepy eyes I quickly rushed to my phone, as I saw who was calling, I hissed. I already knew what she wanted, I picked up my phone grudgingly “Hello Sister Sandra, Good Morning” It was PrinceEasy’s girlfriend that called me, I knew she wanted to invite me to a fellowship ni, I just knew it because anytime she calls me it’s to ask me to come for fellowship or when she can’t reach her boyfriend.
She greeted me like she would greet her Father-in-law, usually if she wants to ask me to come for her fellowship she goes straight to the point, but that morning she was just beating around the bush, she asked how was my night like 3 times. She even asked if I have eaten and it was around 6:30 in the morning, it was then I knew something was going on “Sandra what’s happening? Hope everything is going on well with you, you want to tell me something?” I asked her straight up to know why she called.
It was when she told me what she wanted I understood why she was acting up. She said “Can I come with my Boyfriend to your place over the weekend?” For 2 weeks now me and My Guys has been going to my place over the weekend, to chill and all that. I was the only one around for that period, my Parents were out of the State for some weeks; they went to our Village to settle some family matters and my other sibling is in school, boarding school.
The 2nd weekend with my guys at my house was actually the maddest, one of my friends named Solomon but we call him King Solomon was around during that weekend. King Solomon is a straight up bad guy, Grade-A Playboy, if this Nigga was actually the real Solomon, He’d have 7000 concubines and 3000 wives. He’s bad like that.
King Solomon is the guy that chauffeurs us round the school; he’s the only one with car in my clique. So that weekend, as the chauffeur he took us home… we were drinking and stuff when he suggested us to bring our babes in. I knew I was not going to call Lola or Vanessa, I have been avoiding them for reasons I can’t even explain and they were the only “Sure Babes” I had.
I told them to go and get their ladies that I’d be home putting things together, PrinceEasy also knew his babe wouldn’t be a part of something like that so he didn’t even try to reach her or call her to ask, he decided to just stay home with me too and wait for them to go get their Shawties.
While King Solomon and my other friends went to get their girls, we were just checking things,
if we still had enough Liquor and Stuff.
PrinceEasy wasn’t looking all that happy, I knew he’d have loved to just chill with his babe over the weekend too.
I tried talking to him, thought him some moves he could make to talk her into following her the coming week, at least he already got her to kiss him. It’s a gradual process; it all starts with a kiss yeah? He said he’d try and talk to her. He talked to me about Vanessa and Lola too, he asked me who I was seeing now, I told him none of them that I don’t want to go too deep in their circle, and a Nigga might be F***ed up in due course.
It took my guys almost forever to get back and on getting back the number of girls I saw with them shocked PrinceEasy and I. Apparently the girls they called their friends and probably their friends called their friends too. You know girls pull that stunt a lot
“My Boyfriend is coming to pick me, we are going to his friends place for the weekend” that’s probably what one of them told her roommates and her yeye roommates too will be like “and we’re not doing anything over the weekend o, can we come with you, hope your boyfriend friends are handsome and rich, will there be food & fun there?” That was how I pictured the whole thing went down.
Thank God they were wise enough to get more liquor and stuff, I didn’t like that the house was filled with friends, booties and liquor at first, because if my Mum should come and see what we were doing in her house ehn I’m dead and my Dad would made sure they bury me right on the spot.
We really had fun that night; I met some new babes too. It was just fun. So we already made plans for the coming weekend. When Sandra asked if she could come with her Boyfriend over the weekend I knew he has worked on what we talked about, he might have just added little lies because I didn’t understand why Sandra would call to ask for permission to come over the weekend, she probably didn’t know we’d be throwing a mini party but what’s my business?
I told her No P, that I’d be expecting the two lovebirds in my place. Immediately we ended the conversation I called PrinceEasy to know why he told his girl to call me. I knew he must have lied for the Girl, he didn’t tell her other guys and babes would be coming to my place, he said he’d pretend he didn’t know.
Later that day, my friends and I discussed how the weekend was going to be, it was on
Thursday. We were to go to my house the next day, Friday and turn the F**K up, TGIF something. We made our plans; we dropped our contributions and all that. Everything was set, we were ready to have a Wild Weekend.
Here comes Friday; The D-Day, we waited all week for it, it was Solomon’s call that woke me from bed, he had the highest ginger for the weekend, he even dropped the highest money sef. We are usually free on Fridays, no lectures… Normally all we do on Friday is NOTHING just Play Around and have King Solomon chauffeur us round the school goofing around.
That day there was no time to goof around, he came to my hostel in the morning to pick PrinceEasy and me, we went to get the other guys too and then head to my place. We had to do arrangement and settings for better parole; you know what I’m talking about na.
After everything was set and done, we went to the mall, to get some drinks, ice cream, chocolate and all those things that spice parties up, and of course we got condoms too… or rather they bought condoms, I didn’t because I knew I wouldn’t be getting any action.
After getting all we wanted and we were about leaving, someone called me with an excitement, like she was really happy to see me, could it be Mrs. Williams? Could it really be Mrs. Williams? The woman I’ve been dying to see for some weeks now, the woman I’ve been trying to call and has been not reachable for some weeks now, could she really be the one that just called me? But I knew that voice; it doesn’t belong to Mrs. Williams, who called me?
Her sweet voice caught the attention of everybody; the way she called my name s£[email protected] vibrated some strings in my brain.
Turning back I saw that it was Lola and she was not alone (hehe) she was with Vanessa, not just with Vanessa o, Elliot was there too. Apparently he took his girlfriend and his cousin out.
To Elliot, I am Lola’s boyfriend and I barely know Vanessa, Lola came towards me and hugged me tight and she whispered to my ear “where have you been all these while?”
(Where have I been? I’ve been up and down na, looking for Mrs. Williams? Haven’t I?) I just looked at her and smiled like I just got out of yabaleft, we both moved towards Vanessa and her boyfriend and I greeted them, formally.
My friends had already gone to wait for me in the car by this time and I didn’t drop the bag I was carrying with me, I was the one carrying the liquor. “What’s happening tonight?
Where’s the party at, cause I’m sure you’re not drinking all these alone” Lola asked me.
What’s happening tonight? For few seconds I thought of what to say, so I said “You know King Solomon yeah?” I knew she doesn’t know King Solomon, she doesn’t even know any of my friends but she acted along, she said “yes now”. So I continued talking, I told her it was King Solomon’s birthday and we are having a small party at my place later in the night, “will you guys love to come?” I threw the question in the air.
It was after inviting them I just realised what I just did, did I just invite my Ex and her Boyfriend, and her friend to my place for a birthday party that will not be holding? As I threw this question in the air I saw life in the eyes of Vanessa, I knew she’d want to come to my place, also Lola too I could tell she wanted to scream yes right away, but Elliot was just indifferent.
He said “if your girlfriend would be going I could come with my Love too” As he said this, Vanessa gave him one of a kind look, like please don’t come with us o, we don’t want you. Lola said she’d definitely come, so they are all going to come.
Facing Lola I said “Ok baby, make sure you come with them tonight, I’d be expecting you. I really have to go now, my friends must have been waiting for me, we have a lot of preparations to do” I hugged Lola and waved at Vanessa and her Boo then I left.
When I was going to meet my friends in the car, I was just thinking “Nigga you’ve F***ed up” Did I F**K up? But you know sometimes you just flow with whatever and you just find yourself saying what you shouldn’t say. I already said it, so I better start making plans on how I wouldn’t be F***ed up later in the day.
Before I entered the car I remembered I didn’t buy condom because I thought I wouldn’t be getting any action later in the night, but now that Almighty Lola is coming I might be getting more than action, should I go get condom? No jhur I’ll collect from someone.
When I entered the car I told my friends what I had said, I told them I invited Vanessa, Her Boyfriend and Lola to come for a birthday party at my place, my Niggas are the surest, there and then they said we should kuku turn it to a birthday party and we should arrange for weed cake on our way back to my place. King Solomon said “God knows I needed to do my birthday again because didn’t have enough fun on my birthday, exam spoilt it” His last birthday came during exams so we couldn’t turn up very well.
We got all we needed, we set the house, for that night I turned my house to a club even Quilox wouldn’t compete, my Dad would be so proud of me if he sees the wonders I did with his sitting room. My parents didn’t say when they will be back but I felt they would call me before they come and if they suddenly show up, RIP to me.
When it was around 6’O Clock in the evening, PrinceEasy went back to school to get his girlfriend, my other guys too left to prepare and bring in their babes, since we turned the gathering to a birthday party, I called my DJ friend to come help us with music, we invited many other guys and babes too.
Around 8p.m my house was already filled, Vanessa and friends were not around yet, but Prince and Sandra was there (since the gathering was tagged Solomon’s birthday, Sandra was cool with everything happening, she wasn’t just drinking, but She will still eat the cake, LOL), Solomon too (the sudden birthday boy) was with his guys and babes, my other guys too, were kicking things.
We were all having fun, disturbing the neighbourhood; I knew they would report to my parents when they came back, all those streets gossipers, isn’t that what they do best. They would be like while you were away, your Son turned the whole street upside down, he was playing sound so loud the heavens could hear, you know how those street gossipers do na. All those big aunties in the neighbourhood that won’t face their own life.
Vanessa has been to my place countless times, but Lola hasn’t, how she passed the description to Lola I don’t know, I just know I saw Lola, Elliot and Vanessa. Before they came I was not really in the party mood, I was just dulling but somehow immediately I saw them, my mood was lifted.
They were still looking around, trying to find me or someone they know, I moved towards them, “Hey Guys, glad you made it!”
immediately Lola saw me she, she hugged me tight and made me feel her airbags “Hey Baby, I see you’re having fun” because of party spirit, I hugged Vanessa too and gave Elliot the Niggas hug too. (You know sometimes when you see some people you don’t usually talk to in some places you just got to flow like you’ve been talking for years).
The party was on, Niggas were balling, babes were bubbling, and the Alleged Birthday Boy cut the cake, girls love cake yeah? They love to eat plenty of it, we let them eat it, we let them enjoy. We know minutes later they would all be F***ed up.
