As I la!d on bed reflecting on all that
happened in the Restaurant between me and
Richard,I couldn’t just stop myself from
Richard proposing to me was cool because I
know pretty well that am naturing feelings for
him but I think I shouldn’t just accept
now,me accepting quickly to his proposal
would make it look like I accepted because I
found out he is the President’s son.
maybe I would had said yes to him or better
still “let me think of it and give you a reply” if
I hadn’t find out his true identity. A knock
dropped on the door
Me: who is there,open up the door isn’t
locked * the door opened and Richard
surfaced,immediately I jumped up on my feet
Richard: what’s wrong,why did you leave like
that? * he asked innocently holding a
branded bag,I didn’t answer,I just mopped *
did I say something bad?
Me: what where you expecting? that I should
jump on you because you are a first class
citizen of these country and you proposed to
me? no tell me !
Richard: no,its not like that * looks confused
* ok fine,am sorry,here is the meal you left
behind * he stretched it to me but I didn’t
accept it so he dropped it on the table beside
him there in my room* take care.
He turned back and left the room,I don’t
know if to say sorry or let him go but I
decided to left him go,though I felt bad the
way I treated him but many things ran
through my mind,things like ” is he for real
or just a player,isn’t he a student,what is he
up to,are mine doing the right thing etc ” I
weakly sat on my bed trying to control my
Me: are my falling in love with him or its just
an infatuation? oh God,am not sure of what I
feel,just help me * I murmured to myself *
Hours later I took the bag and opened it,I
brought out the contents of the bag,a rose
flower, stick to it its a designed card which
reads ” never forget you had a friend like me
because I would never forget I had an angel
as you” my heart beat increased
Me: does these mean I good bye * scared *
I put it down on my bed and brought out the
already packaged spices chicken then a
bottle of creamed wine.
I get them out not knowing what else to do.
I finally decided I was going to apology to
him once I see him the next day.

Both: forgot what
Me: him
Jerry: who?
Me: never mind,let’s eat the chicken together
Jerry: and the wine!
Me: we drink it
The next morning I took my bath,got dressed
and left to classes,I was I class when I
realized that my monthly visitor was around,I
was on easy,I was already feeling stained but
thanks to God I was on black skirt,I just kept
to my seat even after every lecture and with
the rough plays of most of my course guys
who were crushing on me. I noticed Jerry
and James knew I wasn’t comfortable but
didn’t ask
after their lectures I walked to the female
toilet,brought out tissue paper from my
bag,cleaned up myself and used some to
serve as pad till I get home because I was
really hoping to see Richard before going
on coming out of the toilet I saw Ella our
assistant course rep
Ella: hi Precious * smiling *
Me: hi
Ella: are you ok?
Me: yes am ok,thanks * walked pass *
I looked around for Richard but didn’t see
him,I don’t even know if he is a student or
not,even if he is I don’t know his department.
for three days I did not see Richard,I tried
calling but I couldn’t find the number he
called me with
I kept expecting him to come to my lodge as
usual but he never turned up.
the 5th day being Monday,after classes I saw
Richard seated on his car,my heart skipped,I
tried to being myself before walking up to
him but before I got to him I saw Ella run to
him and they embraced
Richard: look at my baby,I missed you
Ella: no no no I missed you more.
I was so shocked and dumb founded,Ella of
all people with Richard. I just turned and
walked home not only disappointed but with
pains in my heart.
