|Love Hiccups by Nobody: 11:50pm On May 30, 2017|
Nate and his bestfriends Kennedy and Kelechi were sitting in their favourite position at Sparkle's bar, as they always do on Fridays, they were drinking and discussing how their week went, as they each work in their father's companies in different part of the city, they are your typical definition of rich, tall and handsome.
'K.C this week wasn't really good for me bro, can you imagine my dad and mum calling me up late last night, to talk to me about settling down'' Nate said.
''you don't mean it, I mean it happens to me all the time but this is the first time am hearing this from you'' K.C replied laughing.
''Guys, you both need to stop bed hopping and settle down, i mean you will thirty in...this is May right...'' Kennedy asked his friends who were both looking at him like he's from planet Mars.
Seeing that they were both not ready to say a word, he continued.
''...stop giving me that look, In September, you both will be thirty, you are just one step away from the big 3.0, biko, consider settling down'' he said and raised his glass of wine before bringing it down to his lips.
''Pastor Ken, thanks for the sermon but it was really a waste of your precious strength'' K.C replied and and looked away before smirking.
His friends recognized that look and turned to face the direction he was looking at.
''Guy chill, she should be 20 or 21 for God's sake'' Kennedy said to K.C who wasn't even listening to him, his attention was totally on the beautiful young girl who just walked into the bar.
''Guy wake up'' Ken said to K.C waving his hands to and fro in his face.
''Huh, what?'' he asked with a frown.
''That girl should be 21 or even 17'' he said to K.C.
''whether 21, 17 o or 9 o, I don't care, all i know is that my bed will be warmed tonight, I aint't gonna be lonely tonight'' he replied and started adjusting his clothe, which didn't actually need any adjustment.
''peodophile'' Ken muttered.
''Who cares!'' K.C said and winked at him.
''Nate, talk to him'' Ken said to Nate who was also staring at the lady.
''Bro, let him have fun, I mean look at this, just few minutes ago, you momentarily forgot the month of the year that we are in, and it's not just you, almost all married men do that, I bet you all will forget your name one day''
he said and playfully hit K.C who was already laughing.
''This isn't even funny, why the laughter'' Ken asked irritated.
His bestfriends were sometimes a thorn in the flesh, and it had grown worse since he got married last year November.
''Man chill, it's just that i can't imagine, sleeping, waking, living and eating together with one woman for the rest of my life, come on the thought of it alone is already giving me brain ache'' K.C said to Ken before standing up.
''One man one woman, that's God's commandment and am obeying it plus I love my woman'' Ken said smiling, he knew what was to come.
''here comes that word again' Nate said and rolled his eyes.
''Ken, Love doesn't exist'' K.C replied wearily.
''It's just a momentary madness'' Nate affirmed.
''Men came up with that word to justify their vulnerability to a woman's touch'' K.C added.
''for real it does and am a proud member of the most fantastic town called love town''
''if love existed Solomon wouldn't have married 700 wives'' Nate said.
''and his father David wouldn't have gone after another man's wife'' K.C put in before walking off to meet the lady.
''Nate, for real you need to call K.C to order, this his flirtitous lifestyle is getting out of hand, today it's becky, tomorrow it's Vivian and the day after it's Linda, it's getting outta hand'' Ken said with a slight anger in his tone.
''Ken, stop taking life too serious, let him enjoy his life, am not a student in the school of love am a strong believer of ''enjoy it whilst it lasts'' statement.
''you've got your head together better than K.C, maybe you should consider settling down'' Ken said in his most brotherly tone.
''Love, Marriage, those two words does not exist and will never exist in my dictionary, and no more sermons tonight, let's just drink'' He warned.
Ken obeyed, he knew Nate was super-serious, he hated hearing anything about Love or Marriage or settling down, he was always scared to bring up those topics whenever he is with his friends, cos it rarely ends well.
''and call your Wifey, it's getting late don't let her get worried, I don't believe in love but i believe in care and trust'' Nate said smiling.
''Thanks, I totally forgot about that''
''am not surprised, you married men forget everything, well am off, that brunnette has been giving me a welcoming signal since. I can't let this opportunity waste'' he replied pointing in the direction of a skimpily dressed young girl, before walking off, leaving Ken all by himself.
''Is that a tattoo on her arm' Ken asked himself before shaking his head in disgust
''Lord please save this friends of mine'' he muttered, before bringing out his phone to call his wife.

Ken drove into his compound, parked and went in quietly so he wouldn't wake his wife, he knew the door would be open, as it usually is on fridays.
''where are you coming from by this time of the night'' his wife's voice stopped him half way through the dark sitting room. He hadn't bothered to switch on the lights when he walked in because he knew where every pin and pen normally is, he was very familiar with his sitting room.
''sweetheart, you are still awake'' he asked.
''no, am sleeping'' she replied angrily.
When she didn't bother switching on the light, he located the switch and did it himself.
''Come on, baby, it's just 10:15PM, the night is still young'' he said trying to lighten her mood.
''the night is still young by 10:15PM? Are you kidding? Ken you are a married man for God's sake, stop all this''
He came closer to her and tried touching her but she moved away angrily.
''Sweetheart, but you know where I was, i called you even when i know you knew where I was and who i was hanging out with''
''that's the point'' she shouted.
''what point'' he asked her.
''You need to recognize that you are now married and you have lots of responsibilities now, you need to stop moving with those single friends of yours'' she said bitterly.
''wo, wo, wo, stop it, don't tell me that what you are trying to tell me now, is that i should stop associating with my best friends, my childhood friends''
''yes, that is what i mean'' she said sternly.
''do you even know Nate and K.C, do you know the kind of sacrifices they have made for me'' he asked her.
He was now raising his voice at her, obviously angry with what she said.
''whatever they have done for you, it's all over now, am your wife now, am the bone of your bone and the flesh of your flesh, stop associating with those two...two... those chronic bed hoppers, they are a bad influence on you''
''Vicky, this conversation is over, I don't want to ever hear you talk about my bestfriends like that again, stop painting them black'' he warned her.
The conversation was truly over, since they got married six months ago, he had never called his wife by her name, seeing him do it was a sure sign that he was very angry.
With tears in her eyes ''since you have chosen them over me, so be it, I was only trying to advice you like a wife, Goodnight'' she said soberly and walked away to the bedroom.
Ken didn't bother following her, he just layed on the sofa, with his clothes and shoes on.
He had no right to be angry with his wife, she was right about Nate and K.C bed hopping, but the way she said it irritated him, considering the fact that she knew that those two gave up their dreams of studying abroad to be with him in Nigeria, when his father refused to send him abroad to school, claiming that there are better schools in Nigeria.
He was also surprised at her attitude, she was speaking to him, like he was some sort of stranger, this wasn't the way it was three months ago or even two months ago.
''Maybe they are right, Love doesn't actually exist in planet Earth'' he muttered to himself before relaxing on the sofa.
Meanwhile, Victoria, Ken's wife was sitting on their king sized bed crying, she had let her fears and insecurity to get the better part of her.
''God what did I do, i was only scared that Nate and K.C would lead him back to his former lifestyle, God please help me, our marriage is just 6months and we are already quarreling like Cat and Rat'' she said in shaky voice with tears rolling down her cheeks.
She continued crying and talking to herself, and also looking at the door wishing her husband would walk in.
After awhile she looked at the wall clock and realized that it was already 12 midnight, and her dear husband obviously wouldn't come to the bedroom, she said a short prayer and went to bed.
This was the first time they would sleep apart since they got married.
The following morning.
''Nathaniel Obinnaya, where are you coming from by this time of the day?
Without being told Nate knew who it was.
''Dad, good morning'' he greeted his father who was sitting beside the car park reading the morning papers.
It didn't occur to him that his Dad would be there, if it had, he would have parked outside and followed the backgate, to avoid early morning sermon.
''what is good about the morning, is it that your age mates are married with kids and you are still single that is good'' his father asked dropping the papers on the side table.
''Dad, please I don't want to do this, this morning but since you wan't to compare, try comparing me with K.C, he is my age mate and he has his own house in Maitama, since you asked, I spent the night in his house'' he said and walked off angrily.
''Just rememeber, you are my only child and I had you when I was just 25'' his dad said but he pretended like he didn't hear and continued walking.

Nate angrily pushed open the door to his room and went in, He's spent less than five minutes in the house and already it felt like a cage.
He felt his phone vibrating in his pocket, he smiled in relief when he saw the caller's I.D.
''K.C, what's up''
''Man, am cool, those chicks just left, am already feeling lonely in this big house, but i enjoyed their company whilst it last''
''Loneliness is better, I wish i was in your shoes, My old man just spoilt my saturday''
''sorry about that, but I'm lucky, I haven't received any call from my dad since yesterday, i can enjoy my weekend without hearing any tale about how his bestfriend's daughter is a good cook and so homely''
''These people are beginning to annoy the hell outta me'' Nate said rubbing his eyebrow, something he does whenever he is angry.
They continued talking and laughing about things, ranging from football to girls to family.
The call was cut short when K.C's sister barged into his sitting room. He was so engrossed in the call, that he didn't even hear her drive in.
''Guy, i will call you later, my sis just came in'' K.C said to Nate.
''Oh, oh, oh, oh, trouble has landed, I will call Ken, i haven't heard from him since he left the bar yesterday night, If things get too tough, just press the I-am-In-Trouble button'' Nate said at the other end, and they both laughed
''Hello sis'' K.C said to his sister who was still standing by the door fuming with anger.
''Dad and Mum are worried about you''
He sighed, this sister of his was really a pain in the arse.
''morning, and how was your night'' he replied sarcastically.
She rolled her eyes ''K.C, I am a mother of three and I am older than you, am sure you don't expect me to greet you first''
''Whoever greets first, doesn't matter, you are welcome, what brings you here'' he asked ushering her in.
She hissed and walked in majestically.
''so you can not greet your elder sister again right?'' she asked pouting.
He shook his head, women! They are hard to understand.
''Good morning big sis and may I remind you that you are just 10 minutes older me''
''hello, i do'' he said while waving at her.
She rolled her eyes once more before sitting.
''so, what brings you here, early this morning'' he asked setting a tray of fruit juice before her.
''I took the kids to visit dad this morning and he told me he was worried about you, your phone has been unavailable since yesterday''
He smiled when he remembered what he did and why he did it.
''K.C why are you smiling'' his sister interrupted his thoughts.
''Nothing, now that you have told me I will do something about it'' he scoffed when she smiled.
''how are your kids'' he asked.
''they are doing fine, you see raising kids is a thing of joy, watching them play and doing all their baby things can be...''
''oh stop it, i don't like the direction of this conversation''
He had the best sister in the world, but lately she had also become annoying, always giving him a hundred and one reason why he should settle down.
''am sorry if i said anything wrong'' she said soberly.
He moved close to pet her, she looked like a little girl who had been denied her favourite candy.
''Welcome my son, kedu''
''Odinma'' K.C replied his father and then looked at his sister angrily when he remembered how he got to his father's compound.
He had tried to comfort his sister like a good twin brother, but she refused to be comforted instead she burst into tears, and only stopped when he promised to come with her to see their dad.
''Mummy ututu Oma'' he greeted his mother who was smiling like she won a lottery.
''Nwam Oma, Kedu ka idi''
''adim...'' he stopped halfway when he saw the look that his mum and sister were exchanging and he realized that they planned it all along and he felt stupid for falling for his sister's acting skills.
''My son, you know why you are here'' his dad started.
if this was another family meeting to discuss his matter then he would gladly let them have their way.
He wondered why his family members won't let him be.
His thought was cut short when a nicely dressed but over bleached lady walked into the living room and greeted him before going over to sit by his mum.
''she is Senator Owuka's daughter, her name is Mirabel'' his mum said looking directly at him.
He smiled inwardly, there was no way he would marry an over bleached lady even if had any plans of settling down.
His dad started and talked on and on about the girls family, while he sat down quietly, as if he was listening, trying to come up with a plan of his own.
''alright dad, I have heard you I need to leave now'' he said when he sensed that his dad has finished.
''alright Mirabel, bye, see you some other time' He said smiling.
''alright dear, bye'' she replied seductively.
He hissed inwardly. But kept on smiling because he has come up with a plan of his own, but he has to discuss it with his friends before executing it.
