The Devil Who Loved Me - Episode 3

My mind kept capturing Timi’s face though I tried
shutting it down, I had to focus on the meeting.
Abayomi ordered for more drinks but I wasn’t
interested. He even teased me with asun, it didn’t
It was Uche’s time to talk; I wondered what
someone like him would want from us. I also didn’t
like the fact that Abayomi wanted to make a deal
with people like him.
Uche: We will support the campaign, make it hitch
free, protect you the candidates..wetin we want
dey small compared to what we are giving in
I liked the way he switched from pidgin to English
without breaking a sweat..nice..
Me: and what do you want oga bros..
He didn’t laugh, mumu boy..
Uche: not me, I am here with respect to a client..
Me: like you are working for someone, a student or
Uche: he rather not disclose his identity now.
Me: we can’t work with shadowy individuals.
Abayomi kicked me with his legs beneath the table
Abayomi: what does you client want?
Uche: he wants all the video gaming rights in mini-
campus, he wants all the compact-disc selling
rights in mini-campus, he also wants to open a
Me: he doesn’t want lecture halls too?
Nobody laughed, nobody got the joke…
Abayomi: your client doesn’t want any of his
businesses in the main-campus? That place is
more lucrative. Instead of the monopoly, it will be
easier for us to allow him have some in the mini
and main-campus. What if we have a difficult
senate that doesn’t approve?
Uche: he is also ready to offer you 1.4million naira
I saw the greed in Abayomi’s eyes…
Abayomi: who is he?
Uche: I can’t say for now, dat one no necessary
Me: we can’t assure an unknown person that we
will give him all the rights, million or no million.
What if we are dealing with a devil?
Uche: why don’t you think about it, Abayomi, you
get my number abi?, call me na.
Without further ado, the meeting finished.
Uche stood up and was about living when kofo
stood up.
Kofo: Uche, are you passing by olopomerin?
Uche: yes
Kofo: you have a car right?
Uche: yes..
Kofo: can you drop me off at home?
Uche: sure
I had to give it to kofo, she played it well. She got
back at Abayomi for leaving her hanging out to
dry. That car thingy too was deep, Abayomi was
Abayomi tried focusing on his Star lager, but I
could see he wasn’t enjoying it.
Me: Abayomi, oya come and stop taxi for me
lemme go home.
He hissed at me and kept looking at Uche and
kofo’s direction. Uche turned back almost
immediately and looked at us with a wicked smile
on his face. Just as they got to his car, he gave
Kofo’s bums a soft pat she didn’t seem to mind.
Abayomi: I don’t think we should accept this
Uche’s client’s offer
Me: looooool..because he is taking kofo home?
Abayomi: you dey mad
Me: Ab, free kofo..lets talk about Timi, you know I
can’t work with him
Abayomi: its too late sis, I already texted him and
he replied, he said he is interested.
Me: you couldn’t wait for both of us to discuss
Abayomi: 600,000 naira baby, I know your father
can give us
Me: ode..i hope Uche fucks kofo’s lungs out tonigt
Abayomi: wetin concern me.
Me: no be your chic?
Abayomi: your friend Toun is my chic, for your
information I am sleeping in her house tonight.
Me: nope you will sleep alone..
Abayomi: you trust dis your witch-craft o, na you
go sleep alone, better go beg Acho… go see na..
I picked my phone and dialed a number
Me: Toun…are you home, I broke up with Acho…I
need your support. I am heartbroken.
After receiving sympathy from her, she hung up..
Abayomi’s phone rang..
Abayomi: baby what’s up…..
… are you serious?
……baby she is not heartbroken, she is drinking
Gordon spark here, flexing…
… na…I need you tonight…
……Toun don’t do…
Toun hung up.
He looked at me and swore plenty in Yoruba.
Me: I guess you are sleeping alone?
Abayomi: demonic girl
Me: heheheheheheehehehe
Toun: I am so sorry about Acho, so that guy
cheated on you?
Those were the first words she said I as entered
her room. In as much as I wasn’t heartbroken, I
wanted to talk to somebody about Timi. Toun like
Abayomi had been friends with me since I was at
100L, they knew how it started, they also knew
how it stopped happening.
I was sitting in class when noticed a boy was
staring at me. I tried ignoring him but he didn’t
stop, it seemed he was looking for my attention. I
decided to steal bolder glances at the stranger.
Whenever he caught my eyes, he blew kisses.
After a while I started laughing, he was laughing
too. Though I must admit that he looked easy in
the eyes and Timi was fine mehnnnn. He had
baby-like features. His afro was black and his shirt,
chinos pants and loafers looked smooth. Suddenly
students started moving to their sits, signaling the
arrival of a lecturer.
Lecturer: Timi! What are you doing here, aint you
an economics student?
Timi: mummy oh! I was missing you, that your
sweet smile…I had to follow you from main
campus to mini-campus.
He screamed back at her, she laughed so also
most of the students in the auditorium. She
evicted him from the class, I noticed a couple of
girls winking at him as he walked out. He blew me
one last kiss when he noticed I was still looking at
him. Toun was sitting beside me and was very
Toun: that boy is fine o, babe don’t dull o..
Me: I don’t like fine boys, they have too much
Toun: commot dere, you dey fear heartbreak.
I am not sure I heard anything the lecturer said,
the boy with the blowing kisses kept clouding my
mind. After lectures as I strolled out with Toun, I
saw him standing at the corridor. Fine as a button!
The boy had been waiting for me. I felt good.
Timi: Fine girl, how was lectures?
Toun left me without as much as excuse me.
Me: fine
Timi: I am Timi by the way..
Me: hello Timi by the way
He laughed so loud, his voice, his dimples… were
Timi: what’s your name?
Me: Tana
By this time he was beside me, looking at me like
he was searching for something. I liked the
perfume he wore, and the way he licked his red
lips when he spoke.
Timi: Oluwatana can I buy you lunch?
Me: I am Igbo
Timi: Tanachukwu can I buy you lunch?
I laughed, I was defenseless…my brain said “play
hard to get”….
Me: No problem…
He took my hand and led me to the cafeteria like
we didn’t just meet me some moments ago. After
a while, I couldn’t stop myself from holding him
too, first gently….then firmly….we fit effortlessly. I
enjoyed the glances people threw at us. he didn’t
need to ask me out, I believe we started dating
during that walk to the cafeteria.
