The next day the first person to wake me up was Anita with her calls, I was very surprised when she asked me how was my journey the previous day. Is this girl a witch? I thought after long discussion with her she told me to come to her house that day since my grandma doesn’t allow visitors in our house. I accepted the offer and it was as if she should go mad, after another set of discussion we ended the call while I sat upright on my bed and quickly remembered something Emeka told me the previous night.

‘’Guy did you know that since you left this village you are the talk of the town among teenages and youth’’ Emeka said


‘’The city boy who betrayed his girlfriend by proposing to her enemy in her present’’ Emeka said as the statement strucked my heart like a thunder.

‘’wait wait guy are you serious about this??”’

‘’stay there na what they are just waiting for is to see you come back to this village and people will start pointing saying that is the heartless city boy’’

‘’no problem that one is their business’’ I said climbing the bed.

Back to present====

I remembered the tigers and I smiled, looked up the roof and muttered some words ‘’Anita is the cause of all this right. She wants love no problem I will give her love but I promise Anita that I will spoil and destroy her life to the extent that she will regret this day’’ I said stood up and headed to the sitting room.

At exactly 12pm, I got dressed with one of my expensive clothes, called kimkom to meet me at the bustop in order to take me to Anita’s house. About five minutes later, kimkom arrived while we started our journey. I called Anita on phone to direct me which she did with joy. In less than an hour we arrived a well built bungalow green in colour wasn’t fenced. Kimkom and I alighted while I called her that we were outside her house. Anita came out of the building with a bum shot and a sleevless top….

‘’Jake!!!!!’’ she shouted as she ran and hugged me’’

‘’Jake I have missed you a lot, wow you are looking more handsome’’ she said while I blushed and made a quick sign to kimkom.

‘’Boss I will be in the vehicle waiting’’ kimkom said and left.

‘’Who is he??’’ Anita asked.

‘’Don’t tell me you don’t know kimkom my driver’’

‘’Wow so you have a driver, I thought the guy who used to come and pick you was your uncle or relation’’

‘’oh no he is my driver, you are also looking splendid’’

‘’stop flatering me’’

‘’like seriously am not flattering you, I never knew you were this beautiful’’

‘’hmmm now you know, lets go inside joor’’

We went inside the well funished house, the house was really beautiful with executive interiors. I made myself comfortable by sitting in a sofa, while she went inside probably the kitchen. Suddenly my principal came out and saw me in her sitting room.

‘’Jake how are you??’’

‘’Am fine ma’’

‘’Hope there is no problem???’’

‘’Not at all ma I just came visiting’’

‘’ok that’s good of you, am on my way to the school make yourselve comfortable’’

‘’thank you ma’ I said while she left.

Few minutes later Jane came to the sitting room and was very surprised to see me.

‘’Senior Jake!!’’ she said in awe.

‘’cmon call Jake forget the senior stuff how are you??’’

‘’As you can see am doing well’’

‘’I can see it, that’s good’’

‘’ Hey what’s happening here????’’ Anita asked with a tray of chivita and glass cup.

‘’nothing much, you all are looking good’’

‘[smiling] thanks’’ Anita said putting down the tray.

‘’why do you have to disturb yourselves, am ok’’

‘’don’t say that for God sake this is the first time you are coming to my house’’

‘’if you say so let’s eat’’

We ate together and at the same time gisting about different things but I wasn’t that concerntrating as I was admiring Jane, Anita’s sister, I was already liking the girl. Could this love or lust I thought. We continued our gist until Jane started giving me some seductive flash light but Anita didn’t notice. At a point it was already too much so I decided to take my leave.

‘’Anita I will be on my way now’’

‘’but you haven’t stayed long’’ she said childishly/

‘’yea I have something to catch up with but I will see you later’’

‘’ok let me escort you’’ she said leading the way.

As soon as we got outside the house, I called her to a corner holding her hands and looking into her eyes.

‘’Anita am so sorry for all that I have done to you in the past, am sorry for hurting your feelings… now I realise my mistakes, I love you so much and I promise to take care of you’’

‘’wait wait Jake are you serious oh my God Jake I love you I love you I love you’’ she said happily jumping on me while I carried her and kissed her passionately. I felt my heart pierced sharply and a tiny voice saying ‘’why are you betraying Chioma’’ I felt very sad and heart broken but I replied the voice saying…

‘’Not intentional but doing this for a reason’’

‘’I will give you a call’’ I said entering my Honda Pilot.

‘’Bye my love’’ she said as kimkom started the engine and drove away……

The remaining days of the week was fun and Interesting as kimkom, Emeka and I were just flexing round the village. Since I came back to the village guilt hasn’t allow me to visit or call Chioma and I know she must have heard that am back. Finally, it was Monday the day of school resumption.


The atmosphere was very tensed that morning, I was fully dressed in my amicable dark blue and white uniform. In no time kimkom arrived to take Emeka and I to school while we hopped into the vehicle and drove off, we were half way gone when we came across the last person I wanted to see. I bent low to avoid the person from seeing me but my foolish cousin Emeka told kimkom to stop…….
