The Devil Who Loved Me - Episode 14




I expected that I should be happy that Timi and
Annie were no more an item, but I wasn't. It felt
good knowing that he won't be straffing her again,
but it left too many uncertainties. Before now I
consoled myself that the only reason why Timi
didn't come back to me was because of Annie. She
seemed a formidable replacement.
As I watched him drive, I felt bad. Was he
heartbroken? Abayomi was gisting about the
changes Gbenga Daniel had brought to the state
when he came in 2003, but now, all he did was loot
the state dry. Toun, who was an avid PDP fan,
disagreed. I had little interest in politics, I know
Timi liked Gbenga Daniel, but he was quiet.
Abayomi: So Timi, would you come pick us for the
party tonight?
Timi: I won't be going
Toun: why na, because of your heartbreak?
Timi laughed..
I decided that I might put rat poison in Toun's
indomie
Me: you should come na, Annie might be there.
You guys can even make-up.
Abayomi: plenty other girls will be there..you can
have your pick
Toun: you think everybody is as cheap as Kofo?
Abayomi stared at the passing cars..
Me: but if you really don't wanna come, it's alright.
For the remaining time spent in Timi's car, we
spoke about the unknown Umar Yaradua, who was
PDP's presidential flag bearer. The only thing we
knew about him was that he was the katsina state
governor that voluntarily declared his assets.
Though Abayomi and Toun wanted me to follow
them home for Sunday rice, I declined. I had
clothes to wash, books to read and privately sort
out my emotional life.
I also wanted to know who had given the orders for
our Kidnap. Though Toun believed National had
something to do with it, I had a feeling it was
bigger than National. Something told me what
Abayomi and I were campaigning for was more
than the SUG position.
Aisha was one of those popular girls in school, the
kind of girl that spent so much on clothes that you
wondered if her house was a boutique. She was
also known for clubbing hard. I was surprised that
she had chosen her house as the venue for the
party. Toun was sitting on my bed, drinking nutri-c
while helping me decide what to wear.
Toun: National is gaining grounds over us
Me: how do you know?
Toun: Timi was telling me that mini-campus might
be ours, but we would share the main-campus with
National. The college of medicine and Engineering
might just be our waterloo.
Me: and what is he doing about it?
Toun: all he can, you know he is a student also,
and immediately after the elections, comes exam.
Me: true..
I settled for an armless top and a black jean.
Before we went for the party, we decided to
quickly visit Chibuzor, he had arrived from the
hospital the day before. His girlfriend wasn't
around when we got to his room.
Me: Chiboy, I see you are better now
Chibuzor: stop jor, I know you people came to
mock me
Toun: No jor, we were scared that day o…have you
ever considered dropping out and starting a
Ministry?
Me: you are mad Toun. Don't mind her jor, every
once in a while s--t like that happens..
Chibuzor: how did I behave , tell me what I said.
Toun: ask your girlfriend na..
Chibuzor: we are having issues,she said I
embarrassed her.
Toun: finally , you fucck up sha..
Me: Toun and I just decided to come say hello..we
will be on our way now..
Toun: no!..Chibuzor I am hungry o…you get
beans?
I practically dragged her out of the room. Chibuzor
was laughing but you could clearly see that he was
embarrassed.
Abayomi arrived shortly, he came with Chukwudi,
one guy like that in maths science. They came with
some drinks that we started sipping to prepare
ourselves for the party ahead. Sometime later I got
a text..
Timi = changed my mind, see you at the party.
I felt awesome!
Me= you really don't have to come.
I hoped he wouldn't take my text serious, I was
already regretting it when I got another text.
Timi = I don't have to, I want to…
Aisha stayed in a four bedroom apartment that she
shared with her friends. Outside the apartment,
the smell of Marijuana was competing with
oxygen. Music of MoHITS, the rave of the moment
was blasting with gyration.
Cuz I want to dance with you pere…..
Omo ma lo rope mo kere……
If your boyfriend come mi ma mere….
Abayomi and Chukwudi saw people that knew
them outside, so they left us to our whims. Like
decent people that girls were and men will never
be, we looked for Aisha to tell her happy birthday.
Girls were already grinding their male
counterparts to the sweet voice of Wande Cole. I
finally sighted Aisha..
Aisha: babes howfar, you guys made it..
We went for a hug. She was wearing what we
called a micro-mini . her boyfriend, a student of
Uni-LAG that spent most of his time in Ago..was
hanging around her like a fly to s--t. As food was
one of my Forte, I left Toun and Aisha to continue
with their small talks, whilke I went to look for
edibles. I saw a tray of fried chiken in her kitchen .
I picked a piece and wanted to munch it when I
saw his familiar sweet face. He was sitting with a
group of people arguing about Atiku's chances in
the election as a candidate for ACN. He must have
seen me because he stood up abruptly and walked
up to me.
Timi: you are looking hot
Me: you are not looking bad yourself..
He handed me a cup of ponch. If it were another
guy, I would have rejected it, but it was Timi..my
Timi.
Timi: where is Toun and Abayomi?
Me: Toun is with Aisha, Abayomi is with
Chukwudi..
Timi: you are with me
The fine boy was flirting with me..
Me: yes I am with you
Timi: come let's dance..
He led me to the dancing area, the Dj changed the
song to P-square's "Do Me". Timi didn't waste time
in spinning me around so that my shaking bum
was against his jerking waist. His right hand was
on my waist, ..he leaned to my ears and spoke:
Timi: are you seeing anyone?
Me: no…why?
Timi: I want you back, nkem
Me: like that?, I must look cheap.
Believe me, what my mouth was saying and what
my waist was doing was different. I liked this boy
too much.
Timi: no boo, I am crazy about you…I know you like
me too..
Proud idiot..
Me: yes I like you, but I must know what happened
the first time. Why you left me. I begged you like a
slave, I almost ran mad. You didn't blink. What did
I do to you Timileyin?
I turned and faced him, looked at him and I swear I
saw pain. My hand went around his shoulder as we
danced along. That was when I saw the dark figure
sitting down. If what I saw in Timi's eyes was pain,
what I saw in the dark figure's eyes was
unreadable.
Jafar's eyes were blank as Timi held my waist to "
Lori le o di Gobe".
]Two girls were in other sides of him. They had red
cups of what I suspected was ponch. Jafar didn't
seem to be drinking. I removed my eyes from his
darkness and concentrated on Timi…or tried to
concentrate.
Timi: we would talk about it tonight
Me: I will be glad
Timi: I hope you understand though
Me: why didn't you explain to me while you were
still with Annie?
Timi: when I explain, you would understand
I just quiet and allowed myself enjoy the song.
When I stole a glance at Jafar, he was gone,
although his space was maintained as the girls sat
in the opposite sides of his absence. The house
was filled to the brim, twas like everybody turned
up. I saw one of Jafar's goon just a distance away,
the one that led the assault on Acho. He was there
to protect me, I felt protected as he smoked his
cigarette and his eyes never left me.
Toun and Abayomi entered the house and started
dancing immediately. You could see that they were
crazy about each-other. As we both danced, I felt
this was how it was supposed to be. I felt alive.
When Annie walked in with her pussycat dolls, I
felt a bit awkward, Timi didn't see her but I did.
She looked at me too, instead of the frown I
expected, she smiled.
I had to take a breather so I went back to the
kichen to eat another chiken. Toun followed me
and the aproko in her was just annoying.
Toun: you and Timi back?
Me: no jor..
Toun: the way you were giving it to that poor boy,
him d--k go don dey pain am. You guys ought to
straff o…just for old times' sake
Me: you no get sense.
Toun: this chiken is the truth.
We munched and gisted about what the girls were
wearing when we heard a sound that you shouldn't
hear in a party. The kitchen had a small store that
was slightly opened. Toun went to peep, then
came back smiling, she beckoned on me to join
her in peeking. Though it was dark, we could see
the girl holding the drum of water with bum shot
backwards with the guy ramming her like his life
depended on it. National's eyes were closed as he
grabbed the bum he fuccked. Kofo's moan was
getting louder as she seemed to be cuming . I
underrated the size of the girl's ikebe o..it
swallowed National's d--k without preamble.
Toun and I ran like little kids to look for Abayomi so
we can tell him about what we saw, as we ran we
passed people drinking, some people smooching
themselves at the doorway, we hadn't searched for
long when I saw something. Something I wished I
never saw. I saw Timi talking to Annie at such
close proximity, that any movement would have
seen them enter each-other. He looked so
embroiled in the discussion that he didn't see me.
But Annie saw me; she kissed him and held him
tight. He held her too. I kept walking, I didn't want
Toun to see them. I didn't want the pity.
Abayomi and Chukwudi were talking when Toun
interrupted and whispered in his ears. I tried to act
like I was still elated, but I wasn't anymore. I just
wanted to drown. For the second time, Timi was
breaking my heart.

To be continued
