Just as I was about talking, Emeka showed up.
"guy, we should be on our way now... Hey Nancy, wassup "
Nancy smiled at him.
" take care Nans " I quickly say, standing up.
Emeka reduced the volume of the music and announced " alright, everybody gather together, we have a better place we are heading to.... We're going to a club and believe me, we are gonna rock that club mehn, so I want y'all with cars to pick some people up and drive to 24/7, we are going to celebrate our big man here, Timi "
The people cheered on and began getting their things to move.
I was just feeling moody, it was probably because I haven't spoken to Benita and... All thanks to my pride which wouldn't let me call her.
Cora'S POV"Happy birthday!" we all screamed.To be very honest, I was actually still feeling angry at Timi but Aisha asked me not to be since she clearly thinks it would be a nightmare, just like her losing Josh would be a nightmare.The look on his face showed anger and confusion.Wait, is he angry because we did this whole birthday thing for him? Who on Earth doesn't like surprise birthday parties?Well, if he chooses to get angry, Aisha should be blamed and not me, it was all her idea of a 'perfect party'."what's going on here? " he asked turning to Emeka." surprise!! " Emeka grinned.
" wasn't it just last week you asked me to transfer some money to you? "" ehhn yes, that was last week but this is a new week, try to be nice na considering everything I'm always doing for you, you're not being fair " she yelled." my dad hasn't even sent me money in a while now because he's asking me to go home to see my mom and you know I can't do that...... I don't have much money on me, I've only got little " I yelled back." we both know your definition of little isn't even little at all besides, the money I'm asking for isn't even much " she smacked her gum." and how much are we talking about here? "" just 25k " she answered quickly.Well, Jenny had been quite helpful and was always there for me even when my shitty friends abandoned me." fine " I picked up my phone and quickly did a cash trans
TIMI'S POVElla had just sent some information to my email, I was sorting them out because it was part of the contract deal we had just gotten and this is a big hit deal.Cora was spending the night here and it was quite sad it was this particular night that I got busy.Just then, I heard her screaming...No, she wasn't screaming, she was singing..."you're my baby "" you're my sugar "This girl is a clown, was she trying to get my attention? Well it worked because her voice is terribly horrible." Benita sweetie, can you keep it low? " I begged." this night you're looking nice, I like food and you’re looking lice "" Babe, he said rice and not lice " I laughed as I took my hand away from the keyboard looking at her.
" oga chill, don't transfer aggression on me, we all know you are pained because Benita dumped you for Timi.... You sef, it's because you are not trying hard for her " she munched." please and please, it would be nice if you'll shut up"no honestly, it's obvious you still love her and as you're seeing me, I'm badly in love with Timi " she smirked" what exactly is your problem, look at you pregnant but still talking about loving another guy... Are you like psycho or something? " I yelled" so falling in love makes one psycho? Check again! " she still smirkedI stood up to leave "I'll leave you to your issues, I just came to check on you, bye."Wait " she called outFrowning I turned to look back, she was on her feet alread" I can help you " she said softly" why would I need your help?" I can help you get C
" it's fine Olivia, I have forgiven you " I tell her.I could see Rona's face lit up at the word 'forgiven'." honestly Olivia, I've also missed you and the way things used to be "" me too and that's the reason I came here, I came to put things in order... You've always had a nice heart right from time and I know it wouldn't be hard for you to welcome me back but you see Aisha... Not even Aisha, Deborah in particular ehn " she laughed" calling her Deborah is even a crime " I joined her laughing." I know right " even Anu and Rona giggled.We were quiet for a while." remember that time your mom gave you custard to school? " she smirked.She didn't even need to say much, I almost fell down laughing." what happened to your custard? " Rona asked unamused.<
" because shouting is all you need to get sense into that head of yours " she fired." you're sick Deb, you need to see a doctor or something! "" no, you are the mentally deranged person here " she pushed her plate away making it break into pieces." What if Olivia has been right all these while, life isn't all about insults and aggression, can't you just take a chill pill and grow up ..... Besides, I don't even know what I did here "" she took Jude, she took Derrick and she's probably aiming at Timi and when she gets him, if you come crying to me, your own don done " she barked." and don't you ever in your life tell me to grow up because you are the one person that really needs to grow up "" whatever " I waved her off. I didn't like fighting with her but she's being stupid." whatever fire you there! " she gave me her five fingers 'waka'
" Dude, have you forgotten? I d-don't smoke " Timi instantly say to him."Ohh, true... yeah yeah, I forgot, my bad " his friend quickly answered.I had seen Timi smoke some couple of times.Well, many of my friends did smoke.The girls and I have all tried it several times, my elder brother Daniel once caught us and was really mad at us. He made us wash all the cars in our compound.We decided it wasn't good for us and we vowed never to do it again.I remember the time I saw Timi smoking and I gave him serious warning to stop it.Rona came into the living room, beret on her head."You all are still up? I just came here to get water from the fridge "She got her water and came to sit with us.We all become awkwardly quiet."Wow Timi, you can really make hair " sh
"If anything happens, blame it on yourself and besides you said you'd go drop me off?" I asked."yeah, we'll go back to our place now, get dressed and I'll take you to whatever cinema and when you’re done, I'll come with Rona to pick you off and then take you back to hostel" he smiled."you are creepy" I say to him.He and Emeka gave themselves slapping handshakes laughing.We got back to Emeka's place, I went to wear something simple, no need to stress it, I had no intention of impressing Jude.Coming out, Emeka nodded at me in admiration but Timi frowned and asked me to go change the dress."the clothe is okay na, it's a fine dress" Emeka said."yeah, that's the problem, it's too fine and she's a fine girl... You suppose understand guy.... Sweetie, please wear something longer or anything"
