The next day Tinuke and I were already waiting for Olamilekan at the common room with our bags. He got there few minutes to 8am and joined us in the common room.
“Hope I’m on time?” he asked.
“You are right on time” I replied.
“Shall we” he said helping us with our bags.
We got to the airport, trust me good bye is the saddest words. Olamilekan watched us with amazement when Tinuke and I was shedding tears when Tinukes flight was announced. I’m sure he was wondering if the semester break has been extended from four weeks to a year. We said our good byes and she left.
I start down quietly missing my friend already.
“Will you miss me, the way you’ll miss her?” he asked.
“She’s my friend, room mate, course mate, fellowship mate, evrything. You should understand. I’ll miss you too. Remember we’ll see in Lagos unlike her”
“Sure, but still Anike you need to grow up, you are an undergraduate and not just that ‘Daddy’s little girl’
“I’m a big girl”
“Say that to yourself, anyways what are your plans for the break?” He asked
“Plans! I don’t have any plans, I will spend most of my time at home, I’ll just visit one or two friends in the neighborhood”
“And you won’t be bored, staying at home alone?”
“No I won’t, I’m an indoor person and I’m used to it. Mum too will be around most time…full house wife” I shrugged.
Wow! That’s rare this days”
My flight was announced. We hugged and he kissed me on the lips before left the departure.
Home sweet home, it’s so good to be home. I met my mum at home who had prepared delicacies for me. My Dad was so happy to see me when they got back from work. My two siblings were all over me. I’m much older than them. Adekemi is 14 while Okiki the baby of the house and the only male child is 11.
Tinuke had called me earlier when she got to Abuja. I returned Tinuke's call later in the evening and I spoke with Sam as well. She was happy I spoke with her boyfriend. He actually called me back and apologized.
Olamilekan’s call came in immediately, we talked briefly and he promised to Check on me once he’s in Lagos.
Olamilekan payed me a visit some days later when he arrived. He was dressed in blue jean and grey polo shirt, looking charming as usual. I led him into the house. He met my mum. I introduce him as my friend, then I rushed to my room to change. I wore a knee length Ankara gown, it was friday.
He stayed for a while before we left for the cinema in his car. We got to the cinema, bought drinks and popcorn and watch an action thriller movie and a romantic comedy.
After seeing the movies we sat in the park discussing the movies we saw and other things. He took me back home in the evening.
Trust my friend she called me immediately I got home, I wonder if she put a tracking device on me to know I was home already.
“ Monitoring Spirit! Did you put a tracking device on me? Because I just got home now” I asked playfully.
“ I’m monitoring you in spirit ni, hope you had a nice time with him?”
“Yes I did”
We talked for a while, she asked after my parent, I asked after hers before ending the call.
I started preparing for school. We are to resume the following week. I called Tinuke and we both agreed to return to school on Monday, because in my school some lectures will go to class on that very resumption day to give lectures and trust me they’ll take attendance if not test.
Olamilekan called and want me to visit him before we resume so I could know his place. He sent his address and I went the following day.
I got to his beautiful abode, I met his younger sister. He introduced us.
I stayed for like 30mins, I already told him I bave some errands to run for my mum. We left his house for a nearby eatery.
We chatted while eating, I told him I’m going back to school on Monday he said, Tuesday which means we can’t travel together.
We left the eatery and he drop me off at the bus stop where I took the cab. He gave me #5k for transport.
I was so happy to see my friend. ‘Miss' is an understatement, we hugged, pecked and hugged again giggling and smiling.
“You’ve added wait o, see your cheeks” Tinuke wheeling her box to one side of the room. I smiled at the kettle who’s calling pot black.
I came in earlier, so she met me cleaning the room. So she joined me.
After the cleaning and arranging, we took their bath. They were so exhausted from the enviromental sanitation.
“I’m tired Anike, maybe we should just eat bread this night, I’m so tired to cook and you are tired as well”
“I brought some soup from home, I already envisaged that we’ll be tired to cook, after the cleanup.I’ll just boil rice” I said.
“Anike you are a life saver, that’s so thoughtful of you, she rush to the pot of soup and was amazed to see meat, fish and pomo gracing the soup, this is a good definition of ose igberaga (week of enjoyment) she said jokingly. We slept immediately after eating.
Olamilekan came to the hostel the next day. He brought a carton of noodles with him and handed it over to me, he said it’s for Tinuke and I .we both thanked him.
I saw him off to the packing lot where he parked his car and handed over the plastic bag I carried to him. I gave him the gift I bought for him. He thanked me, opened his car and gave a plastic bag also. He also got me a gift too. He entered his car and I watched him zoomed out of the parking lot.
I went to my boyfriend’s lodge on a Saturday after my practical classes. Tinuke did not follow me this time.
I got to his logde and met him watching “La La Land”
I heard the movie is interesting, I don’t have enough time to watch the movie at his place, so I told him I’ll copy it on my flash drive before leaving.
He cooked for me and I ate to my satisfaction. When I was ready to leave I took his laptop so I could copy the movies. The laptop was password, I told him to come enter the password and he said the password is Anike mi. I entered my name and the system came up. I smiled and promise myself to do the same.
I copied the film alongside with the interesting ones he told me to copy. He dropped me off later at the hostel.

Everything was going on smoothly between us, we find time to hang out once in a while, I got to meet Olamilekan’s friend Jude. I love his choice of friends, they have so many things in common. Olamilekan also gave me a copy of the key to his room. He said I can always come around any day, anytime, consider it as your second room.
We were really getting serious and Olamilekan was a sweet guy to be with.
Tinukes got a call from home. Her mum called informed her that her grandma passed on today and she said she has to join them in ogbomosho her home town, this weekend for her burial.
Her grandma who died at 85 already instructed her children before she died that they must bury her immediately when she died, she hated the morgue”
“Can you sleep in the room all all alone?” she asked
“I doubt if I can sleep here alone, I’m not used to it” I said
“I have an idea, maybe you should spend the weekend at his place”
“And by his, you mean olamilekan right? No way”
“I don’t want you to be lonely while I’m gone, you know how dry hostel is on weekends and that’s the only place that can assure me that you’ll be fine without me. I’ll give him a call, because I know how stubborn you can be sometimes”
“Please don’t call him, at least I have a room to myself at home, its just that this place will be empty without you, but I’ll be fine”
“I’m calling him, watch me” she took her phone and put a call through to him.
She called Olamilekan and told him about her grandma and trip to ogbomoso. “Pls come pick her up on Friday evening, because I’m sure my stubborn friend won’t come on her own and that’s why I’m calling you personally” She said and disconnected.
I thanked her for planning my weekend for me without my consent.
In the evening, I was busy preparing dinner and gisting with Tinuke while she on the other hand lay on the bed. We were discussing about the fight that happened in class that day between two girls that fought over a guy, inside lecture theater”
“That reminds me. Anike, have you guys talked about se.x?”
“I’m serious o, you guys need to make decisions on what you want in this relationship”
“Please just stop, I can’t believe we are having this conversation. I’m not a baby, spare me the lectures”
“You are a baby, because you are new in this game. I’m a year older than you and I still have experience than you, this is the first relationship both of you are having, so shut up and listen.
First, both of you have to know your HIV status, then in order to avoid unwanted pregnancy, you have to use protection. Now as your friend I’m asking, what do you want?”
“Tinuke, honestly, I want to remain a virgin till I get married. I just wish we are on the same page”
“It takes two to tango you know, hence the reason to talk about it and remember you are spending the weekend at his place”
“We’ll talk about it, thank you. Counsellor Tinuke”
“You are welcome”
Lectures ends by 12pm on Fridays, we headed straight to the hostel after lectures. Tinuke pack some few things for her journey, I saw her off to the park, I waited for the bus to move before I left the park .
I got back to the hostel and most of the rooms were locked.
By 4pm, the hostel was almost empty, especially the rooms in our wing.
I thought about everything Tinuke said and it got me scared, maybe I should just stay in the hostel, I’ll survive, I encouraged myself.
Olamilekan called me later around 6pm, he said he’ll be in the hostel in 20mins. I told him not to bother but he said he had already promised Tinuke.
I packed everything I knew I’d need for the weekend, Olamilekan came by to pick me. I was already set, he grab the bag and felt the weight.
“If I may ask, why is this bag heavy Anike? its just two days”
“I know, its just that I packed everything I’ll need along with me”
“Like what ma?” he asked with sarcasm
“My personal things including some fast food”
“What?” he shouted placing his hand on his temple.
“ I’m sorry I only took beverages, cereal and noodles”
Olamilekan sank into the bed and turned the standing fan to face him, because he suddenly started sweating.
“Please hold on a sec, I think I need some air”
“Why are u sweating all of a sudden, is it because of what I said?”
“Anike! Please just keep quiet, I don’t want to raise my voice at you” he paused for a bit then continued.
I have never been humiliated like this all my life, you packed foodstuff? You know I’m still trying hard to comprehend this”
“I’m sorry, if you don’t like it, I don’t want to inconvenient you and don’t like been a burden to people….”
“Anike! Stop talking”
“I can see you are angry, I’ll leave them behind”
“You will leave everything behind “ he said firmly”
“What! including my clothes too” I said trying to pick my clothes from the bag. You know what I’m not going again”
“Fine, then stay because if you are coming with me then you are not taking anything with you and I mean it, imagine you even pack your cover clothes, you are just so unbelievable. I doubt if i can put up wirh this your childish attitude ” he said throwing his hands into the air.
That was the first time we argued, Olamilekan was really pissed off, I looked into his eyes, and saw that part of him I never saw before and it’s not nice at all. I had to change my mind. He picI followed after him after locking the door.
Inside the car, I was thinking of how I’ll spend two days with him without clothes, or did he except he want me to wear his clothes. I looked up and that he was taking another route.
“Olamilekan, this is not the way to your house” I said breaking the silence.
“Ofcourse, I know the way to my house”
“Its like you are still angry” I said and he didn’t say a word.
He parked in front of a shopping mall, he alighted from the car, went to the other side of car and opened the car door for me. He held my hand still not smiling and led me into the mall.
“Pick everything thing you need for the weekend” he ordered
“Must you do this” I asked
“Yes, since you think I’m not capable to host you for two days, then I think its high time to flaunt my riches, so start shopping, girlfriend”
When I was through, he payed via POS and went straight to the car. I followed him back to the car.
“The only thing you can’t get in my room is a ladies underwears” he said and drove off.
That was the only statement he altered throughout the drive. And that silence made me boiled within me.
Olamilekan helped me carried my things from the car into the room, we got back around 7:30pm, from the car down to his lodge, none of us talked to each other. I called Tinuke to ask after her journey.
“I’m missing you already” I said to her while we were talking on phone.
“Don’t miss me too much, don’t worry your boyfriend will fill in for me”. Little did she know that actually not in good terms.
We talk briefly before ending the call.
“What do you want for dinner?” he asked
“Nothing” I replied
“Anike for the love of God, why are you making a mountain out of a mole hill”
“I said I don’t want anything, in fact I want to go back to the hostel” I bursted into tears.
Olamilekan was sad when he saw me crying, he quickly rushed to my side to comfort me.
“Anike mi, pls stop crying”
“Let me cry, you refuse to talk to me, if you are still angry with me, then let me leave”
“I’m not angry at you believe me, though I don’t like what happened earlier, I just gave you the piece of my mind and it has ended right there in your room”
When I stopped crying because of what he said. He asked what I wanted for dinner but I told him I was not hungry that all I want is a good sleep. I slept without taking dinner.
I woke up in the middle of the night, he checked the time and to my surprise its 1:00am, I recollect everything that happened that night. Unknown to me Olamilekan was awake too. I woke up hungry so I told him I was hungry. Hewent into the kitchen and made noodles for me.
After eating, I went back to bed. I woke up early that Saturday morning because of the physics practical class I have by 9am. I was about to enter the bathroom to take my bath, when he called out.
“There is towel, toothbrush and toiletries in the bathroom, and they are all new”
“Thanks, I’m using yours except you don’t like the idea” I said teasingly.
“Really! Are you sure?”
“Except your toothbrush” I said smiling.
“Come here” he said pulling me into an embrace. My Anike is growing up”
“So I’m a baby right”
I showered and joined him in the kitchen, He alredy boiled yam, and I fried the egg. I served the food. “We are eating together” I told him.
“Yes ma” he said.
After breakfast I left for my practical class after breakfast.
I came back around 4pm, I met my him watching a football match. Guys can bore you with their weekend football matches.
“Welcome, how was the practical class, he’s eyes fixed on the game?” he asked
“A bit stressful, I had to fill in for Tinuke too, but it’s fine”
“Do you mind us going out later, I don’t want to bore you here with football”
“Yes, let’s just stay indoor, continue with your match. I’ll freshing up and join you later.
Later in the night, we were about to sleep, then I remembered the issues she want to discuss with Olamilekan.
“Olamilekan, Are you sleeping already?” I asked to be sure since his eyes was closed.
“No, you need something?”
“Not really, there’s an issue I’d like us to discuss” Olamilekan sat up.
“What issue? Anike cleared her throat.
“I want us to discuss about sex as regarding this relationship”
He smiked. “Anike, for the record, this is not you talking, that’s your friend talking”
“And how do you know that?”
“Trust me i sure know what Tinuke is capable of.
Anyways, He was right. I told him I want to keep my virginity till I get married and he agreed. I was happy and I counted myself lucky to have that kind of a guy.
I returned to the hostel on Sunday, I had already called my friend and she informed me that she’s on her way. She tidy up the room and did some washing, she also cooked for her friend.
“Welcome” I said and help her with her bag.
“How was your journey”
“Fine, I bless God”
“And the burial?”
“It went well, all thanks to God”
Tinuke called her parent and boyfriend to let them know she has gotten to school. She showered and went straight to sleep. Anike persuaded her to eat before sleeping but to avail. She woke up after two hours, now she looked refreshed.
“Can I serve you food now” I asked
“Not now, maybe later, thanks. So how did your weekend go with Olamilekan, please I don’t mind hearing details” she said teasingly. I downloaded the movie that played during the weekend between my boyfriend and I.
