The Devil Who Loved Me - Episode 18 by Davidflo


Drinks were brought in buckets of ice but I was
less interested, I didn't like the way Fatima kept
whispering in Jafar's ears. It was not like I was
jealous or something, but she should atleast say
what she wanted to say loud and clear… oya I was
jealous small.
Just when I was calming down, the one called
Mariam decided to talk.
Mariam: Please you guys should spread the word
to all the Kano students in your school, my dad is
gunning for governorship.

It was not like I was from a poor home and all o,
but these entire politician's children sef
Toun: oh that's nice although I have few Hausa
Fatima: but Jafar is Hausa and from Kano, isn't he
your friend..
There was a deafening silence, I wondered how
Toun would have explained that our host, who
engineered our being in Abuja, was not our friend..
Jafar: I never told them..
Fatima looked at him and spanked him playfully
like he was a naughty boy. He smiled at her too..
Me: he actually told him he was from Kano
Jafar looked at me, puzzled with the point I was
trying to prove. I smiled as I looked at Fatima.
Me: we were preparing his favorite meal, Yam and
egg when he told me..
Fatima: awwww, Jafar is such a homely guy. He
seldom eats outside. I taught him how to prepare
the yam and egg just the way he likes it. Did you
know just the right amount of onions to slice?
Me: yes!
My answer was a bit too loud. Fatima and I were
not fooling anyone around the table, this was
beyond Yam and egg. Thankfully Uche broke the
Uche: their peppersoup here is mad!.. cow-tail,
intestines, chicken..
Abayomi and Toun that had been relatively quiet
opted for cow-tail, Hauwa and Mariam went for
Chicken, instead of Fatima to other for herself, she
asked for two plates of cat- fish for her and Jafar
Me: make it three plates, I want cat-fish
I wondered why it didn't come earlier but when it
did, Toun's laughter was sonorous. I was a little
embarrassed but I kept a straight face. I didn't
know what was wrong with me, with all the Timi
drama and having told myself that Jafar and I were
in parallel universe, I didn't like Fatima claiming

The drinks were served chilled; the Hausa girls
went for Malta-guiness while Toun and I took our
normal Gordon-spark. The stupidly pretty one
among them called Mariam gave us this
condescending look as we sipped our drinks.
Abayomi and Uche discussed about something
that was very interesting to both of them. Sparrow
and Aji were trying to impress Toun with the
amount of bottles they could drink. The three
Hausa girls were all over Jafar, telling him what
has been happening to guys he knew who attend
Nile University. I was left alone with my thoughts.
Some minutes past 8pm, Jafar went to his car and
came back with a shisha jar, chocolate flavor and
coal were also available. Though I hadn't smoked
shisha before, I pretended I had. As we passed the
pipe between each other, I couldn't help but notice
that after Jafar smoked, he passed the pipe to
Fatima, who rubbed her lips on the mouth of the
pipe. I wondered how nice it would have been if I
was the one passing the pipe to Jafar. I wondered if
he would smack his lips. Okay I was getting stupid
and Toun's disciplinary stare told me she could
guess what I was thinking. I held on to my Gordon-
spark…I didn't smoke with them anymore.
]Thinking that Cue-Lounge was going to be our
final destination before returning to the hotel was
short-sightedness on my part. I forget 'Confra'
guys had their own modus-operandi. Jafar
announced that our next point was Grillaz, also
situated at Lugbe. The three car convoy sliced
through the cold Abuja night like hot knife through
butter. Uche and Aji were in the Hilux, Sparrow
drove the Volvo with Abayomi and Toun, while
Jafar the three witches and I were in his Benz. I
thought Fatima was going to attempt to sit infront
with Jafar, but she sat at the back with her friends
while I sat alongside him. Unfortunately, she sat
directly at his back and kept leaning forward to
talk to him as he drove. I brought out my phone
and pretended to browse on one new site called
N-------d by an unknown programmer simply
known as Seun. Most of the articles being posted
were about the Presidential elections. Though
unattractive, the site engaged me till we got to
Apart from Kuje and some minor towns in the FCT,
Lugbe was the closest to Gwagwalada, so it was
not suprising that a lot of University of Abuja
students hung out at Grillaz. It seemed we were
being expected because a standing occasion
welcomed us as we entered the place. Guys with
hideous faces…some were alright sha quickly
greeted Jafar and co in a way that showed that
they belonged to the same Sect. a couple of girls
were around too, some covered with tattoos and
fake eye-lashes. I doubted if they were students.
At Grillaz, it was more of standing than sitting;
luckily the interior was air-conditioned so it was
alright. The speakers were blarring and before
long, salutations turned to dancing. The tattooed
girls were trying to out-dance each other, Abayomi
and Toun danced at the corner, though Uche
interfered once in a while, I danced with a guy that
would remain nameless for the rest of my life. I
didn't bother getting his name, his breathe stank
of Shepe, while the sweat from his body was
noticeable. The Hausa girls sat down at the only
available sofa, while Jafar and some other guys
stepped outside.
I was glad when Toun came to meet me, hence
ending my dance with Mr nameless
Toun: that guy just dey gum you for body…
Me: I don't know o, like say him neva see girl
Toun: anyways, I need to leave very soon, I feel it
Me: what?
Toun: my period, ode..the sharp pain is occurring
at quick intervals..
Me: you carry pad come?
Toun: Yeah, e dey room.
Me: have you told Abayomi?
Toun: lolz, the poor boy wan die. Said he has been
preparing kama-sutra styles for me
Me: eyaa…but him suppose fit do am like that
now, this time you don't even need to be wet sef,
na safe journey.
Toun: you are a fool, I swear
Me: oya now lets go..
Toun: you can stay behind, I will be aii..i told
Abayomi to remain behind
I ignored her and went to meet Sparrow, who was
smoking probably his 50th stick of the day..
Me: bros we need to leave now..
Sparrow: hope no problem?
Me: no
Sparrow: you sure? Cuz if na dat guy wey been dey
dance with you, I go quickly mend him yansh for
Me: no need for yansh mending
Sparrow looked at me for a while to ascertain that I
was sure of what I was saying, before leading Toun
and I to the Volvo.
Driving outside Grillaz, I noticed a group of guys
talking, in-between them was Jafar and Aji. The
discussion seemed to worry Jafar, as his right hand
was at the back of his head and his left on his
waist. Toun tapped me on the shoulder.
Me: what?
Toun: I am stained.
Toun: Tana, what is going on in your mind?
Me: what do you mean?
We were having this discussion as she fixed her
pad on her black laced panties in the room's
bathroom. I always told her I liked her c------s, this
night was no different.
Toun: stop looking at my p---y and tell me what is
wrong with you
Me: I still don't get…
Toun: you were all over Jafar's matter, you were
almost biting Fatima.
Me: hmmm, mrs Exaggerator.
Toun: stop it at once. It is Naetochukwu for now,
you say you want to avoid drama, you are acting
like a drama queen!
Me: ok…I don't know what is wrong. But I think I
just wanted Jafar's attention. With everything
going on with Timi, I needed someone's attention.
Toun: forget Jafar dear, I know you are vulnerable
now, but focus Tee.
Me: thank you..
While she settled to take her bath, I went back to
my room to have mine, I promised to come back to
her when I was done. As I went to my room, I
wondered what was happening with Jafar and
Fatima. Toun's voice echoed in my head so I
blanked the thoughts and tried thinking of Timi,
but Annie appeared, so I decided to do what I do
when my head is filled. I sang a gospel song…
You are the lord…..
That is your name…
You will never share your glory….
I sang on as i stood beneath the shower, and
allowed the water clean my soul…but after a while
Timi and Jafar's faces penetrated the song…they
penetrated the water….i admitted to myself, I was
attracted to Jafar and inlove with Timi. And I must
eliminate both feelings if I was to be normal again..
Toun was in her pink nightie when I got to her
room, she was watching an episode of Jerry-
Springer, I joined her while we muched pringles. It
didn't bother me that I was missing lectures, I
knew I would cover-up…what bothered me was
National and the fact that we might lose the
election. Toun started laughing at something Jerry
was saying, that broke the spell…I decided to
relax…Abuja was for relaxation. At almost mid-
night, Abayomi staggered into the room, smelling
drunk and singing songs that only he must have
written. I stood up to leave..
Abayomi: don't have to leave, you can
stay with us tonight..
Without looking up from the television, Toun
smiled. Abayomi was a h---y goat whenever he was
Me: ode..goodnight jare..
Abayomi: walahi…you go like am..
I laughed as I stepped out of the room and closed
their door. Infront of my room was Jafar, he had a
bucket of wine with him.
Me: what are you doing infront of my room?
Jafar: I came to see you
Me: that you have seen me…you can
go back to your room..
Jafar: can I come in?
Me: I think that would be a bad idea…
Jafar: for you or for me?
Me: for us..
Jafar: I like the sound of 'us'…
he smiled casually… standing infront of me, I could
smell his sweet scent…my heart was beating fast.
Me: only 15minutes…
Jafar: cool…
I didn't say it out…but I like that sound of 'us'
