I FELL IN LOVE

Episode 1

Wemimo Olatunji was standing under a tree taking refuge under its shade, She was waiting impatiently in front of her friend's department checking her wrist watch every minute. She wants to buy some materials for her project and Tessy promise to take her to the place where she could get the materials in large quantity.

“ Tessy ! Is this your 2pm ? She confronted her immediately she sighted her”

“I’m so sorry Wemmy, the lecture ought to end by 2pm but the Lecturer stayed for another 30min”

“OK o,apology accepted, shall we”

“Yes please”

Wemmy and Tessy are close friends since there 100level days although they are not in the same department but they were room mates in 100l, they live separately now but still there friendship grew stronger over the years. They are in their final year and they are more like sisters now. They came back with the materials she bought,she was about to unlock the door to her room when she noticed that someone was inside.

“I think your boyfriend is around” Tessy teased with a wink. Emmanuel opened the door and they all exchanged greetings.

“How did it go, did you get all the materials? “

“Yes we did, thanks to Tessy she knows virtually everywhere in this town.

“Thank you Tessy you are a darling” he said

“Come off it Emmanuel what are friends for.

Wemmy prepared food and they all ate, her boyfriend was the first to leave while Tessy stayed for a while.

Wemmy and Emmanuel have been dating for the past two years and He love her so much. He could do anything for her,if she’s too tired to cook, he will come over to cook for her and help her with her domestic chores. There was a time she was admitted at the school clinic, Emmanuel stayed with her all through, he missed lectures and test. He was so sweet and Wemmy appreciates all these, so she respected and cherished him in return.

Wemmy was on her way out when Thessy called her phone.

“Hello dear, Thessy said from the other side”

“Hello Thess, how’s your weekend going”

“Fine,I’m on my way to your place, I want to copy some files on your laptop “

“I’m on my way to Emmanuel’s lodge,you have a copy of my key,so help your self”

“The key is not here with me,just wait for me abeg I’ll be there in 10min

“OK,I’ll wait”

Few minutes later Thessy arrived. “I’ll be leaving now,you can drop my key with Sophia when you are through.

“Who is Sophia,that jambite?” she asked

“Yes,she’s a good girl I can trust her with my key.


Episode 2

Wemmy got to Emmanuel's lodge but lo and behold he’s not in. She open her purse to use her copy of Emmanuel’s key then she remembered she left her bunch of key with Thessy. She picked her phone and called his line.

“Where are you? I’m at your place and my key is not with me”

"Sweetheart I’m sorry, I just got a call from my supervisor, he ask me to come over to his house, I was so much in a hurry that I forgot to inform you."

“It’s OK”

“You know what ?I won’t take long, you can stay with my flatmate, he’s around I will give him a call now”

“You mean the guy that just move in?you know we don’t get along well in fact we barely talk”

“That’s because you didn’t get to know him, he’s a great guy, he’ll keep you company till I come back”

“OK you can call him then” she said reluctantly and ended the call"

Emmanuel put a call through to Feranmi and told him his girlfriend need to stay with him till he comes back.

Feranmi came out and exchanged greetings with Wemmy.
"Emmanuel called, you can stay in my room till he comes back" he said and ushered her in.

“Thank you" she said why scanning the whole room, the room is very neat and well furnished just like Emmanuel’s room, guys this days make their room comfy.

“Your room is nice”

“Thanks please make yourself comfortable plus what can I offer you”

“Cold water will do”

“No, you can’t take only water,he declined”

“Seriously, cold water will do”

He served me chilled water and I thank him. Before I knew it we got talking, I never knew he was someone interesting to be with it. I checked the time it was 2hours already, my boyfriend called and told me he’s still with his supervisor, he took him out to get some things for the project. He pleaded with me to wait for another one hour.

“What did he say” Feranmi asked

“He said I should wait for another one hour, I’m sorry for the inconveniences”

“Not at all, I’m enjoying myself,I never knew you talk like this, I take you for the quiet type” he said

“Me too, I thought staying here with you will be super boring but I was wrong"

We continued our gist and we talked about almost everything. An hour 20min later Emmanuel called back and said he’s still with his supervisor.

" I will take my leave then" I said and he promise to check up on me when he comes back.

“I’d like to take my leave now Emmanuel won’t be coming soon,thanks so much for keeping me company”

“My pleasure, its nice getting to know you and you really made my weekend”

“Really”

“Yes it’s fun having you around and I must confess Emmanuel is really lucky to have an intelligent and friendly lady for a girlfriend”

"Thanks" she said smiling, and he saw her off.

I FELL IN LOVE - Episode 3

Wemmy got back to her lodge and collected her key from Sophia, She showered and fix herself something to eat. Emmanuel showed up later in the evening looking tired.
“Don’t tell me you are just coming from your supervisor’s house?”

“Yes, the man just released me"

“Let me get you something to eat”

“I’m not hungry we stop by In a restaurant on our way back”

“Are u going home or you want to sleep over”

“I’ll sleep over” he replied

“Then you should call Feranmi, i really enjoyed his company”

“I told you he’s a great guy, I really admire his kind of person ever since he moved in last semester”

He called Feranmi later, he thanked him and informed him he won’t be coming home, he passed the phone to his girlfriend who in turn thank him as well.

Ever since that weekend, Wemmy always make sure she spare little time to say hi to Feranmi whenever she visited Emmanuel. They now relate well, there was a day she ran into him in school and they chatted for some minutes.

Feranmi got a call from his childhood friend, Richard who informed him that his sister just got admission into UI and he told his friend to send her phone no, he promised to check on her. On Friday evening, he called the number his friend sent him.

“Hello this is Feranmi on the line, your brother’s friend”

“Uncle Feranmi! She shouted gleefully”

"I’m happy to hear from you, my brother told me you’d call”

“Yep, its been long I saw you, I doubt if I’ll still recognize you” he said jokingly. Richard told me you stay off campus, just text me the address”

“When are you coming”

“Are you at home now”

“Yes” she replied

“Then you’ll see me soon”

“It’s a lie! She said jumping with joy and the line went off.


****
He alighted from the bike, and she was already waiting for him in front of her lodge. She jumped and hugged him tightly. He handed over to her the things she brought for her.

“Thank you big brother”

“You are welcome little sis" he said teasingly.

They both went into her room where they gist and he gave her loads of advice on academics, social life on campus, boys and UI in general.

“Allow me take my leave now, I’ll check on you during the week, at least let me take care of you a bit before I graduate”

“Alright, but please Uncle Feranmi,before you leave there’s someone I’d like you to meet, she’s been like a big sister to me here, she’s in 500l too, you need to thank her on my behalf”

She took him by the hand and led him to her room she knocked at the door and she came out.

“Wemmy!”

“Feranmi!”

“You guys know each other” Sophia asked pointing at both of them.

“What are u doing here” she asked

“So this is your lodge” he asked

They all entered into Wemmy’s room and there they answered each other’s questions.
“Thank you for taking care of my little sis,she told me so much about you”

“It’s nothing, we are once jambite too and I know she needs a lot of care and attention”

“I like your room, it’s lady like”

“Thanks”. They all got talking for some minutes before he left.

When he got home, he went straight to Emmanuel’s room and downloaded everything that happened to him and they laugh over it, its really a small world indeed, its late already so he retired to his room to sleep.

During the week, Feranmi payed Sophia a visit, they chatted for a while and he stood to his feet prepared to leave.

“Are u leaving already” she asked

“No, I want to check on Wemmy, I’ll come back to your room before I leave”

Feranmi went to Wemmy’s room, as usual they got talking again as if they’ve known each other for ages.

“How’s your project going, hope your Supervisor is not too hard on you like that of Emmanuel” he enquired

“Not really but he’ll make you write one chapter for like 10times before approval” she said and they both laughed.

“Yours” she asked

“I guess I’m lucky with mine, he’s one of the most simplest Lectures in my department”. He checked his wrist wash and realize its getting late. I’ll be leaving now he announced.

“Ok, thanks for stopping by, I’ll see you on Saturday” she informed him.

“Please bring Sophia along”

“I will, goodnight”

“Goodnight” he said and hugged her. There is this strong current that runs between them that made them refrain from the hug immediately.

Good morning, have a blessed day.

I FELL IN LOVE - Episode 4

Feranmi got home that night, and realization dawn on him that he has feelings for Wemmy. He couldn’t sleep at night he was just there on his bed full of thoughts.

“Feranmi get her off your head she belongs to someone else, she’s dating your flatmate for crying out loud, Emmanuel and I are not that close but he’s still a friend and he’s a nice guy” he said to himself. I think I’ll have to stop seeing her, I’ll tell Sophia to come over whenever she needs me, I have to stop going to that lodge and I’ll make sure I stay away from her when she comes visiting her boyfriend.

For three good weeks Wemmy did not set her eyes on Feranmi, she realized shes having this not funny feelings for him. She misses him so much that she was tempted to get his phone no from Sophia, she even taught of getting it from Emmanuel but that idea is even worse, so she dropped it. She did not see him on weekends too when she went to her boyfriend's place, he no longer stays at home on weekends.

“Wait o, Wemimo, it’s like Feranmi is avoiding you o,or did he feels the same way” i said to myself pacing up and down in my room. If he does then I’m in trouble.

It was a Sunny Saturday morning Wemmy had already made up her mind to stay indoor but she later decided to pay her friend Thessy a visit.

Thessy noticed she was quiet, she just sat on the bed starring at nothing in particular.

“Sweetheart what’s eating you up? Project, Your supervisor, home, Emmanuel?” she asked

I jolted out of reverie when Thessy mentioned Emmanuel.

"Nothing, i'm fine, i just need rest" i lied.

She wanted to tell her everything in fact that’s the reason why she's there but she couldn’t bring herself to share it with her. She will practically skin her alive, if she tell her she have feeling for another guy.

She left Thessy's hostel later in the afternoon, got home, showered and did some research on her project topic on the internet and slept off. The knock on her door woke me up. She opened the door, the sight that greeted her was shocking.

Feranmi was standing right there in front of her face. She can't place what she's feeling, she's angry and happy at the same time.

“Will you please let me in” he asked politely.

“Come in” she said and went straight to sit on her bed while Feranmi sat on a chair opposite her. The room was silent for like 5mins.

“Are u done avoiding me” she broke the silence

“What gave you the impression that I was avoiding you” he answered her question with a question.

“Answer my question” she said quietly.

“Wemmy, I didn’t mean to avoid you I just needed to clear my head and set some things straight. I don’t want to destroy our friendship”

“So…..have u succeeded in clearing your head”

“No and that is why I’m here he said picking his words carefully. Wemmy I need to keep my distance for now, I wish you could understand”

‘Make me understand Feranmi”

“It will do us good if I stay away”

“Why” she asked firmly

“I think I……..

“You think” she interrupted him

“Sorry i mean, I........

“The feeling is mutual” she interrupted him again. You don’t need to avoid me, we both know it can’t happen, I can’t cheat.

Wemmy looked at his face and saw his eyes, she was actually fighting the tears before, but immediately she saw him fighting his, she bursted into uncontrollable tears. This is the very first time she's feeling something deep for a guy. This feeling is far different from what she felt for Emmanuel.

He was broken seeing her cry, he moved closer to her and hugged her.

"I’m sorry, I never mean to cause you pain, I’m sorry for making you cry" They look into each other’s eyes and before they knew it, they were already kissing which took like forever before it ended.

“What do we do now?” she asked
after the kiss.

“Nothing, let’s just pretend this kiss never happened"

When he left, Wemmy couldn’t get the flashes of the kiss out of her head, her brain was just running, playing and replaying the scene continuously. It was as if she has never been kissed before all her life. She doesn't need a sooth sayer to tell her she's deeply in love with him. She bursted into tears again and this time not for herself but for Emmanuel, this guy love her like kilode. Feranmi is right, they should just leave things d way they are now.

****
Despite the fact that they didn’t see each other in weeks, Feranmi's love for Wemmy grows stronger and stronger, truth be told that kiss did not help matter at all, he couldn’t get it off his head. He broke up with his girlfriend last section based on the fact that he caught her cheating on him, I mean he cut her in the act, while will he do such a thing to another guy, he knows how how it felt to be betrayed by someone you love.

He did not want Wemmy to turn out to be like his ex. He did not want to be the cause of separation between her and her boyfriend. But he loves her to the bone, He saw her clearly in his future, he saw her as someone who will be in his life for a very long time.
" I’m stuck here. God please help me, your word says he who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtain favour from the Lord" he said to himself.

Wemmy is sure a wife material, that he is sure of, It's know it’s not written on the forehead, but if you get to know her, then you will wish to have some one like her in your life.

****
Feranmi was surprised when he saw her in front of his door, he just came back from school and was about to shower when she showed up.

“Wemmy ! What in God’s name are you doing here” Feranmi questioned

“Will you let me in first”

“Emmanuel is not back from school”

“Of course I know that, just let me in”

He gestured her to come in before closing the door behind her. He offered her a sit but she declined.
"Gosh i miss her, its been weeks we saw each other" he thought within himself.

“I told you we have to maintain our distance for now, till we put this feelings behind us” Feranmi said pacing up and down the room.

“And is that helping you? Cos it’s not helping me. Exams is starting in 2weeks and I’m loosing concentration already I’ve never carried any course over and we both know that this is not a good time to experience one, so I need my concentration back and this disappearing act of yours is not helping matters”

“OK, no more disappearing act,hun!

“Promise?”

“I promise” He covered the space between them with a stride, he hugged her and kiss her on the forehead.

“Feranmi, I’m not saying we should start a relationship but I want our friendship back, imagine we don’t even have each other’s phone no and I know u did that on purpose too”

“Give me your number if that will make you happy” he said and they both exchanged numbers.

“So how was your day? She asked now in a happy mood.

“It was fine, yours?”

“Stressful”

“But not too stressful for you to come down here, he said jokingly.

“Wait! What are you feeling like” she said trying to frown

“Easy, where is your sense of humour, I’m just joking, in fact I’m glad you came, you made my day complete”

“ Hmm, men and ego, anyway I’m leaving, enjoy the rest of your evening”


Wemmy got a call from Feranmi later in the evening, he promise to check on her before the week runs out. They do chat on WhatsApp as well, She now sleeps well this days and now she concentrated better on her exams and project.

He came during the week as he promised and they were back on their gisting mode. He told her about his ex and she realized while he’s been fighting the feeling he has for her. There and then Wemmy made up her mind.
"Feranmi, I won’t jeopardize my happiness for anyone or anything, this is my life and I think I now know what I want.

" Wemmy......

“I’m breaking up with him”

“What ! He shouted almost spilling the drink I served him

“I’m going to break up with Emmanuel” she repeated
herself.

“I heard you the first time, where did that come from”

“Except you don’t want me”

“Come off it, you know how badly I want you but I don’t want to be selfish, he loves you Wemimo”

“More reasons why I’d rather break up with him than cheat on him. Feranmi, I’m not that kind of a girl, I wasn’t brought up that way, I can’t cheat so it’s better to end things with him. I’m talking about my future here, the person I’ll spend the rest of my life with.

“Oluwawemimo,like your name implies I don’t want anything to tanish your name, let’s not rush things here.

“I’m not rushing things. Here is my decision, I’ll wait till we finish our exams and project defence before I break the news to him. I mean I’ll have to do it before we leave school finally.

“Wemimo people will crucify us”

“We’ll cross the bridge when we get there and I believe our love we see us through, Feranmi”

Episode 6

After their second semester exams, Wemmy started preparing for her project defense.
A day to her defense, Emmanuel called to inform her that he won’t be coming for her defense, he’s going on an impromptu trip to Lagos. She got a call from Feranmi in the evening.

“Hello good evening”

“Good evening, how was your day?”

“Fine and yours?”

“Not bad”

“Hope you are not too tense for tomorrow’s defense?”

‘I'm a bit tensed, I’m going through my slides to ensure that everything is perfect

“Can I come for your defense tomorrow?”

“To cheer me up?” she asked smiling.

“If that will help relieve the tension”

“You don’t need to border, Thessy will be there”

“Will Emmanuel be there?”

“No he’s traveling tomorrow”

“Then I insist, I will be there. See you tomorrow and have a wonderful night rest”

****
Thessy and Emmanuel came earlier than she expected, she hurriedly introduced the two.

“Thessy meet Feranmi, Emmanuel's flatmate”

“I know him” Thessy said, I’m just surprised to see him here, Oh! you came to represent Emmanuel”

………silence……..Then Feranmi's phone rang, he excused himself to pick his call.

“Saved by the bell” said Thessy

“And what's that suppose to mean?”

“I never new you two are friends, and here I think I’m your one and only friend”

“So you are jealous, see I have a project to defend abeg”

“All the best my friend, go and nail it”

“Thanks”

After her presentation, the Lecturers ask her questions, her supervisor was quiet all through, he was impressed on how she answered all the questions satisfactorily. One of the lecturers who is a sadist in the department was ask if he has any question for her, he said he has no question for her but he wasn’t pleased that she did well.

“It’s just that I don’t like the color and font of the slides" said the Lecturer.

Wemmy eyed him in her heart of heart. "Imagine, must he talk, he has nothing to say but he still complained about my slide" she thought

All the students present started murmuring, trust Dr Charles, he will always find faults in students. Nobody likes him, Wemmy pity his project students.
All the students cheered her up has she stepped down from the podium.

I joined Thessy and Feranmi, they hugged and congratulate me.

“Thanks, finally I’m free, you are next Thessy”

“Yes o, next week by God's grace, I will come and tap from your anointing” she said smiling.

Feranmi already had his defense two days before her. Thessy excused them, she said she wanted to see someone in Ring road. Feranmi was with Wemmy till the whole defense activities ended.

Enjoy the next post.

Episode 6 (continuation)

Wemmy got to her room tired, feeling sleepy and hungry at the same time, while she was still contemplating on what to do, she heard someone knocking on her door, it was her baby, Sophia.

“Anty Wemmy, I’m so sorry I couldn’t make it to your defense, I had lectures from 9am to 5pm, I’m just coming now, I haven’t step foot in my room.”

“No problem, I understand”

“So how was it?”

“It was good, all thanks to God”

“Congrats ma, did Uncle Feranmi come?”

“Did he tell you he'll be coming? “

“No, I just asked”

“Yes, he came”

“That’s thoughtful of him, I’m hungry and tired”

“That makes the two of us, you know what go and shower and relax while I fix us something to eat”

“Thank you” she said gleefully, you are a life saver, I’ll really miss you when you leave”

“Don’t worry, you’ll be fine my dear, now go and change”

****
Wemmy started packing her things, willed out some while most of them goes to her precious Sophia. Then all the dinner parties started. She couldn’t attend all the final year brethren dinner all because she doesn't want to go with Emmanuel, plus she's not in a party mood at all, she had enough issues on her table already, so there is no point forming couples, since she's planning to break up with him. She only attended that of her fellowship.

She called Feranmi and told him she’ll be traveling in two days, which means she’ll have to tell Emmanuel everything the next day. Feranmi had already given out his room and everything in it to his cousin the only thing he needs to take from his rooms are his clothes and personal belongings, that’s guys for you anyway.

She advice him to leave the house before she come around the next day, she doesn't’t want all this drama she sees on movies to occur. But he insisted on staying since they are in it together, but she made him see reasons, he later agreed reluctantly, She promised him she’ll be okay.

But before she meet Emmanuel tomorrow there’s someone she had to open up to…...Thessy

****
“What ! Are you sick or something, did he hypnotized you, you want to leave Emmanuel for him”

Thessy did not give me the chance to explain myself, she just continue raking.

“So you’ve been cheating on him all this while”

“I did not cheat on him” I finally found my voice”

“Oh! You are dating another guy and you did not call that cheating? Wemimo the last time I checked double dating means cheating”

“Thessy enough of this team Emmanuel and hear your friend out. Thessy I did not cheat, and I’m not proud of this either, I make sure we put everything on hold till I break up with him” I did not know where the tears came from, I couldn’t hold it back. She move closer to me and comfort me, it’s going to be ok” she assured me.

“Wemmy I know you inside out, you are better than this, you are a decent person and you have people like Sophia looking up to you, I’m still trying to process everything. Why did you choose this path?

“I fell I love” another hot stream of tears flooded my eyes. Thessy I’ve never felt like this with any guy, I chose Emmanuel because he cared for me, I thought care was enough, I love Feranmi, my heart yearns for him every hour, every minute and every second.

“It’s ok Wemmy, all will be well, remember the bible says-“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding” it says “In all your ways acknowledge him and he shall direct your path” so you have to seek God's face concerning this matter. But you know this road won’t be easy right?

“Yes” I nodded

“Now go the bathroom and clean your face”.
I came back from the bathroom and she handed me a cup of cold beverage, I drank it and felt relieved.

“So you guys never had sex, I mean you and Feranmi”

“No, we only kiss once and that was the day we both knew we had feelings for each other”

“And you said you didn’t cheat on him”

“Is that cheating?”

“Lets just say emotional cheating, you cheated on Emmanuel emotionally, since you already have feelings for someone else”

“Should I accompany you to Emmanuel’s place tomorrow?”

“You don’t need to, I don’t want to drag you into this, he might think you are an accomplice, its my problem, allow me fix it”

“Poor guy” she said, I really feel for him”

“Me too, God please take control and help him get over me fast”

“Amen”

“Can I pass the night here?” I asked

“Before nko, you think I’ll allow you sleep alone in your room in this state”

“Thanks, my sister from another mother”

I FELL IN LOVE - Episode 7

She entered Emmanuel’s room and sat down quietly.

“Baby what is it, you don’t look OK”

“Nothing, I’m fine”

“You are not fine, what’s going on with you, you refuse to attend all the final year dinner parties, giving me excuses that you don’t feel like going for any outing. You are getting me worried, I’ve been trying to make you talk to me, but you refuse to talk, you’ve stop coming here too, I hardly see you this days. Please talk to me, did I do something wrong”

“Emmanuel! I’m here to discuss some things I’m not proud of with you. First I’d like to thank you for your love and care ever since we started dating, I know your love for me is genuine and …..

“You don’t need to thank me, that’s my duty, you know I’ll go to any length to please you and make you happy”

That sentence hit me like a blow.

“Emmanuel, I’m in love with someone else” I eventually spill it out

“I don’t get you”

“I want us to end this relationship”

“Wemmy are you out of your mind, you want to end a 3years relationship after we have graduated, you know what if this is a joke please stop it already”

“I’m not joking, I’m in love with someone else”

“And who is the guy in question”

“Do you really have to know” I said trying to protect Feranmi

“I repeat, who is the guy” he said shouting this time

“Emmanuel please calm down, I know you are...

“Don’t you ever say my name, now start talking” he said raising his voice at me again

“I’m sorry”

“I will ask you one more time and don’t you dare play dumb with me, who is the guy?”

“Its Feranmi”

“Hold on a sec, is it the same Feranmi I know? last time I checked the Feranmi I know is my flatmate” he said calmly

I nodded in fear.

He laughed, and that scares me more.

“So you guys are even running things under my nose and I never smelled it”

“I’m sorry, its not what you think”

“How long! how long have you two been fooling me”

“Nobody is fooling you”

“You are screwing my flatmate behind my back and you said you are not fooling me, I thought you are different from the other girls Wemmy”

“So now I’m cheap because I’m following my heart” I said to myself, now crying.

“I did not cheat on you Emma…..with the look on his face I remembered he told me not to say his name, so I swallowed the rest.

“It make sense now, no wonder you stop me from touching you. So you enjoy him more right”

“Stop, please stop” I said firmly. I know you are hurt, like I said earlier I’m not proud of what I did, I’m sorry for breaking your heart but believe me I never slept with him, we kissed once and that was all”

“Liar” he shouted

“I think you should know me by now, if I tell you I didn’t do something, then you should know I did not”

The room was silent for about 10mins.

“Wemmy! He broke the silence. Please don’t leave me, come back to me, I love you, I forgive you, you said you did not sleep with him, I believe you and I’ll assume the kiss was a mistake. Just stop whatsoever is going on between the two of you and come back to me”

“My mind is made up, my heart yearns for another”

“Where do you want me to start from, we are going for NYSC in few months time, I promise we’ll get married immediately after service, you know job is the least of my problem, I promise to take care of you and make you happy for the rest of my life”

“Emmanuel, you are a good man, a man any lady would wish for, but I’m sorry I can’t be with you while my heart is with someone else. Please let me go, you will find someone much more better than me, someone who truly deserve you”

She was about to open the door to leave when he held her hand, she saw pain in his eyes.

“Wemmy please don’t leave me”

“Emmanuel I have made up my mind, please let me go”

He opened the door for her and she left.

Good morning, have a good day.
