THE LIFE I DIDN’T WISH FOR EPISODE 16
AUTHOR/WRITER: TERIBA NIMOTA.IDERA
Oh no! How am I ever going to speak especially when Gaffar is there with them. Oh I’ll have to lower my pace because of him. What’s the point? I’m already there . Its not like I’m the shy type but there’s this thing that I feel for Gaffar that wouldn’t even make me talk and with him there, I’ll become dumb.
Good afternoon, I said to them they all turned to look at me looking all happy, they all exchanged their greetings except for Adenike who rolled her eyes at me as if the first she did wasn’t enough. Gaffar was on a call so it made it easier for me to talk. He looked at me briefly. Me being close to him sends a shiver down my spine. Whatever this feeling is, I don’t ever want to stop feeling this way. “Errrmm Zainab, I forgot my key in the room. I’ve been to the room and I didn’t find you so I decided to look for you”. “Eyah” they all chorused!, except for Adenike and Gaffar, whom I think he’s almost done with his call.
” Can I have yours” I asked Zainab.
“Sure, its no problem” she said.
“Thank you”, I said in return.
She handed me the key, I smiled in return. Just when I was about leaving, Gaffar turned to me with his hand slightly hitting me. He said “sorry” in silence or I thought he did. I didn’t bother stopping anyway. I kept on moving, I walked so fast as if I was in a race or a competition with someone. I walked so fast till I couldn’t feel their sight on me. The thought of Gaffar came back to me. I think I’m falling in love with him
I was on call when this pretty looking girl approached us. I really like her stature, petite with a very nice ass. I couldn’t concentrate on my call because her face was perfect. She’s very beautiful and speaks good. I wanted to hang up immediately so I could catch up with her and at least flirt with her but she left before I hanged up , but then I was able to get a perfect view of her ass but the girl isn’t in my calibre of girls. Her clothes looking all old and big on her. But whatever, she has a nice shape even in her not too obvious clothe .
“Who’s that pretty girl”, Gaffar asked??
I eyed him immediately.
“She’s our roommate”, we all chorused. “Wow! she’s beautiful” he said.
Just at the hear of this, I felt something deeper than anger for that stupid Sholape girl. I knew her presence was going to change something. God why is this girl like this? why? I’m going to ruin her life I promise. She can’t just have Every thing. Why will Gaffar even say something like this about Sholape? I already thought she wouldn’t be a threat seems her shape wasn’t that visible in her dress. Who am I kidding?? Gaffar is a flirt I’m sure he can see even the invisible. Gaffar is sure a flirt with no class I mean Sholape isn’t even in his calibre, talk of money, dress sense, social life, plus she’s too serious but to top it all she’s a freaking virgin, I thought to myself.
“Zainab what’s up now, give me your roommates number”, Gaffar said jokingly.
I knew it wasn’t a joke, Gaffar doesn’t joke with girls talk. I was thinking of a strategy to win his heart but I was too mad at Sholape to even think straight now. “Gaffar she’s not even in your league and I’m here remember” I said touching the hem of his shirt and giving him a seductive look. Pushing my small boobs out for him to see what he’s missing yet he just smiled and turned to me saying;
“Adenike you know you’ll end up with those big celebrity” he said jokingly.
I took an offence in that. Gaffar is really blind. Tara interrupts by saying; “seriously Gaffar, Sholape won’t date a guy like you”. Gaffars look changed from fun to intrigued. I was happy at what Tara said that made Gaffar look that way. I was willing to say something that will spice up what Tara had said.
“Its true Gaffar, Sholape won’t date you plus she’s a virgin”, I added. They all gave me a look as if to say you and your mouth sha.
“You girls can’t be serious right”?? Gaffar asked.
“Yes she’s a virgin”!.
“Is that why you guys said she can’t date me?
Yes, Zainab said infact you guys don’t even fit. I mean look at you and compare yourself to her Zainab said.
I quickly nodded my head as I was in support of all they were saying and they were helping me out in a way they didn’t know.
“Look Gaffar you can’t date her not to talk of getting her to bed”, I said.
He got angry at my statement and said; “are you the one dating me”?? I felt bad that he snapped at me so I quickly thought of another plan so he could be on my good side again.
“Fine, get her to date you and I’ll give you 50 thousand”, I said to Gaffar.
He smiled at me and said; “that ridiculous amount. You’re really testing me”.
I know Gaffar is loaded but I only said that amount to piss him off May be he could change his mind. I don’t want him falling in love with her.
“Look girls, not only will I date her, I’ll also deflower her”, he said.
We all looked at him in surprise and chorused “that’s not possible”. Sholape won’t do that, she’s keeping herself until the night of her wedding Zainab said. Gaffar bursted into laughter… abeg! abeg! in this century you guys are jesters.
Let’s make a bet. You get her within three months or six at maximum.
He rolled his eyes at us and said “six months is too much. Don’t you girls know me?? I’m Gaffar Owokoniran, I’m G.money”.
We all smiled but still insisted on 6 months. “Do we have a deal” I said.. “if you don’t have her in six months, I’ll get to have you in my bed” I said. Afterall, that was all I ever wanted. Fucking Gaffar has been my dream.
I turned to my friends saying no one is going to tell Sholape. Although Zainab wasn’t happy with our deal.
“You guys didn’t have to tell him Sholape is a virgin” Zainab said.
“Its not like she’ll agree to Gaffar so its of no use. I trust her” Omotara said.
