I started chatting with Collins… Even though he didn’t know I was
I took it step by step….
We graduated into calling each other…. I never saved his phone
number for fear of getting caught by Vera….
Yet, Collins haven’t yet started calling Vera nor picking her calls.
She had to move on.
The heart break was so much on her… It affected her relationship
with people her posts on Facebook etc…
But how do I care? It’s my turn to play my card well….
Months later, Desmond was still asking Vera out. She decided to
give him a chance., just to use him and pass time… Not that she
would be serious with him though.
She told him about Collins and how everything affected her.
Desmond promised to be her best friend and someone she can
always count on…
My friend got her groove back gradually..
Though Desmond wasn’t buoyant yet but I swear, he takes care of
But yet my friend still calls Collins who still haven’t picked her
Though sometimes she gets ashamed knowing that she’s dating a
At some point, I asked Collins if he had a girlfriend, he said yes but
that they were not in talking terms, that he wants to teach her a
I would talk in phone with Collins for long. I knew I made him
Vera noticed my phone have been busy lately.. She wanted to know
who my new boyfriend is…. But of course how will I tell her it’s
Collins…. No I can’t.
I had to fake a story of how I met some guy like that……. And she
believed me but still wanted my boyfriend to come so she would
get to know him too.
After about some months of chatting with Collins…… He started

Collins paid for my flight ticket to Lagos and I travelled to lag to
When I got to lag, he came to pick me up at the airport…
On seeing me, he thought it was a coincidence….. But i approached
him with confidence…
‘Aaahaaa, are you not Fifi?? He asked looking surprised.
I smiled sheepishly and gave him a hug first..
He was still confused….
‘what are you doing in lag na, he asked.
‘I came to see you…. I replied.
‘Hahahahah, you must be joking right? He asked. …….
‘so who do you think you came to pick up here? I ain’t joking

Collins reached for his phone inside his pocket and dialled my
number, and my phone rang in front of him..
I showed him and he believed..
But he was angry I played him…
He helped with my small box and we headed for the car..
On our way, he didn’t say anything to me. I started apologizing to
I told him that if he had known it was me he wouldn’t have
chatted with me….
He would have thought I’m on a mission to settle him and Vera and
won’t ever reply my chats or calls..
‘so you ain’t on a peace mission right? He asked….
I just smiled and tried to change the topic.
My people make i continue?
