Finally Deji did the craziest and it broke the proverbial camel's back.
One Wednesday after CDS, Lanle and I stood under the only tree close to the NYSC secretariat. Shading ourselves away from the scorching sun. Deji joined us later. We talked about random things. He told me how he had missed Tay and I. I was clearly surprised since we see almost everyday. And I made sure I told him that, because I knew where it was heading. Tay had already filled me in. He blurted out how he was going to come spend the night at our place. Lanle looked at me in a way that's asked ' seriously '. Even I was confused. Why will a guy opt to stay in a house with two girls that weren't his sisters or girlfriends. I wasn't going to be the mean person and just say no even though it was what I wanted. By the way, it wasn't like he was even asking. Since I couldn't say no, I quickly told him to bring a mattress because ours was very small and won't contain all three of us. He laughed. Probably thinking I was joking.
Tay and I spent the entire day wondering what kind of guy spends the night with two girls that are not his girlfriends. He didn't come that night and what a relief it was for us. When we went to his compound the next day to visit Lanle...because somehow we spend more time with Lanle. We stopped briefly by his room...a normal routine with us. He apologized profusely for not coming as promised last night. If only he knew. We quickly brushed it off, waving our hands.
That evening, Tay and I bought noodles and eggs for dinner. We had prepared our house. For the night cometh when no man works. As Tay was preparing the noodles. I sat on the bed, watching movies from my laptop. Because NEPA had forgiven us that day for having too many gadgets and brought their light. The room was poorly lit. The light was almost like a candle. The shoveling of shoes outside our door temporarily distracted me from my movie. Even Tay paused from her cooking to listen. The shoveling was accompanied with a knock. Tay and I looked at each other with wishing in our eyes...we already suspected who it was. ' who is it? ' Tay asked. As the voice answered, our chests fell in complete resignation.
Tay sacrificed her noodles for him and tried to prepare another. While I ate mine watching the screen intently. I had sat on the floor to eat. Slowing I put each forkful in my mouth completely mesmerized by what I was watching. Tay finished and joined us. He and Tay discussed. I didn't care what they talked about. I already knew he didn't come to see me, so why bother. Being a guy and a fast eater, he was done soon enough. He laid on the bed after that and continued the gist. I saw him on the bed but didn't think much of it. My pace was so slow that even Tay finished before me. Soon after I finished eating. NEPA gave themselves the lizard nod of 'we've tried, if nobody will praise us, we will' and seized their light...
I immediately switched my laptop off to save battery for the next day. As I turned to climb the bed and enjoy my beauty sleep. I saw Deji covered in duvet sleeping soundly. Argh!! Mind screamed. I've just been played, I thought. Tay looked at me and asked if she should wake him. I shook my head. Seems like I'd be making a sacrifice here. Although I was pissed, I was willing to lie on the cold had floor. Tay settled on the tiny mattress with Deji. The carpet didn't help at all to make the floor bouncy. I understood at that point what prisoners go through every night. There wasn't even a blanket to comfort me from the harshness of the floor.
I woke up to a sharp pain in my lower abdomen. I ignored it and tried to sleep, but the pain hit again. Harder than the first. ' oh God ' I thought. ' don't let it be what I'm thinking '. I prayed. I turned to a position I thought was more comfortable. Buy the pain only increased. It was it, I knew. My aunty flo had to choose this night of all nights to show it's red, painful and ugly head. I stood up grudgingly and went to pick up a pad. I saw Deji sleeping soundly on my spot. My subconscious maliciously told me to go wake him. I used every strength in me to restrain myself.
I came back to my spot on the floor. I couldn't sleep anymore. I tossed and turned. Just then, my inner demons started whispering in my ear. And I listened. I picked up my phone, inserted my earpiece in it's hole and searched my playlists. I started with demons by imagine dragons. And sang aloud loudly. At least if I was going to be awake, everybody has to be awake too. I sang on and on. Louder and louder. I reached pitches I didn't know I could ever reach. I sang in different parts...tenor, alto and soprano. Voice training was an understatement to what I was doing...infact, it was a freaking riff off. I knew Tay was awake and probably giggling.
I paused my song, when I felt a tap on my shoulder. Then I heard his stressed voiced, asking me to shut up and sleep...not in his exact words. But it was what my ear heard and what my brain interpreted. I didn't answer him. Honestly, I didn't even know I was that petty. I played my song and louder my voice rang. I couldn't care less if I wale the entire bleeping compound. At that point, I was pissed and cranky and mad as hell.
He stood up and started dressing up. I checked the time. 5.50am shone brightly on my phone. I smiled in the darkness. I knew he hadn't slept a bit. Good...what a great morning. He tapped Tay after he finished dressing up and told her he was leaving. Not saying anything to me, he left.
Tay and I never discussed what happened. By noon, we went to their compound as usual to visit. As we entered, his door was locked. We stopped his neighbour's room to say hi. There were about five of them inside playing cards. The moment they saw us, chatter of greetings passed across the room. Some standing up to hug us. Deji ignored my greetings complete. Raised Tay of the floor and shouted how happy he was to see her. He told her how she was the best thing to have come out of Langtang. I giggled together with my subconscious. At least he was affected by what happened.
Lanle laughed the entire time we gisted her. I just knew then that I was better off not talking with someone like that...way way better. And it was one of the best decisions I made.

I was finally able to convince Tay to stay alone while I travelled. School had not resumed and I was in a halt. I didn't like it. The long break would have been a perfect time to visit fineboy and the other guys. Including my friends in Jos. But somehow, I was just in Langtang because the nice me couldn't leave Tay. It was suppose to be G's birthday and a perfect reason to leave.
Lanle and Tay helped arrange my bag. I still haven't mastered the art of packing without looking like I was completely leaving my old life behind. No matter the number of things I decide to forfeit, I still end up carrying more luggage than an airplane. Somehow, everything fit into the handbag I was going with. Including my laptop...wouldn't leave it, not when I've heard all the stories of how there's always light in Jos. They walked me to where I'd pick a taxi. Bargained with the driver and hopped in. The journey to Jos wasn't stressful. Mostly because of the excitement. It was like I was finally going to Europe. When I got to Jos, I found my way to the place I was directed. G met me up and took me to the house. It was a small, cozy self contain. It had been given to her by her boss. She's one of the lucky few. It was even furnished down to the plates and spoons. I settled in alright.
Juls stayed with her since she wasn't so lucky with both a PPA and accommodation. First night and we talked and reminisced our camp experiences.
Now, Juls is a very rare kind of human. Whenever a suggestion is made about us getting something. Maybe dinner. Juls will always give us a pep talk on why it isn't necessary and the money should be used to get something else. I was already prepared for that since G had hinted me. The only necessary foods to Juls are soup and rice. For someone that likes variety, I was stuck. No yams or potatoes or beans or bread. By the way, I didn't leave Langtang North to Jos to eat exactly the same things. I needed to get a total Europe feeling. I needed burgers and pizza. I wasn't going be dressing up in big sweaters, sock and gloves only to go home and eat one soup that doesn't have enough protein.
I didn't know how bad it was. One day I asked that we go out. I was ready to buy stuff for her, only for her to ask me who'll pay her transport...I knew just then that there was no saving her. G's crush even sent 5k to Juls. He wasn't going to be around so he asked that she take G out with the money. The day came and we dressed up to southern fried chicken. G said she wanted chicken and chips, and asked what we wanted. I was about opening my mouth to place my order, when Juls stopped me half way. Long story short. She had spent half of the money to prepare soup and stew and the money can only buy for one person. To say G was mad was an understatement. She got pissed and left the restaurant. She said she couldn't be eating while we watched. I offered to get my own. But she refused and asked that we go home. That was how we ate soup for lunch.
Jos was mostly fun. Especially whenever I go out with G. She was always ready to spend. And me being a good suggester, we blended fine. As we move round Jos from place to place, we fill out hands with nylon bags...mostly filled with food.
Finally, it was two weeks and I was ready to return. I had bought everything I needed. From clothes to food. I was to leave by Monday. Sunday being the first in August. I decided to go to church after G had begged and even offered a skirt to me. Somehow I wasn't feeling it. I just wanted to stay at home, covered in a big duvet and watch movies until I have a headache. But when, they both asked that I joined, telling me it was the first Sunday and I needed to thank God I saw it etc. I was almost feeling like the devil. I dressed up and off we went.
Church was mostly a blur. I wanted to go home. The longer we stayed, the more disinterested I became. I couldn't wait any longer, so I picked up my bag to leave. Juls followed me.
As we got to the door, Juls said something about us not closing it...that can't be possible, I closed it myself. The key's still with me. Just then I knew what had happened. I remember clearly, how in camp we were told about their pattern of stealing in Jos. ' MY LAPTOP ', I exclaimed. Before rushing to open the door wider. It was gone, with the charger. Everything else was there. My legs became wobbly. Juls raised an alarm and people gathered. Nobody had heard anything...I wonder how. It was a metal door. I sat on the bed and mourned my laptop. Everything I had in it was gone with it. That laptop knew things about me nobody else did. We've together longer than any of my relationships. G came back soon enough and joined in my mourning. I didn't know how I'd tell Pops or Nana. I was devastated. Hot tears ran down my face as I remembered more and more the things I had in it. That night I had a terrible nightmare. By the next morning I had lost weight. All the fun and excitement of Jos...they faded away with the memory of my lost laptop.

|Re: Diary Of An Anonymous Corper by gh0sts: 9:50pm On Jan 14|
Finally Tay received a text from NYSC confirming her relocation to Ogun state. It was the Saturday before school resumed. I had mixed feelings after receiving the news. I was happy that I was finally going to receive visitors and travel as I like. But who was I kidding, Tay had grown on me...I was sadder about her leaving.
Few weeks before that Saturday, I had met Bass. It was on our regular monthly clearance. I had done this huge Afro, that was clearly the talk of the town. It was quite embarrassing the first time I stepped outside the saloon. People took pictures of my hair as I walked on the road, some cheered, others laughed hysterically. I couldn't understand the whole drama over a hair do.
I sat on Mag's leg that day waiting for our LGI. Dan and Nedu sitting very close. People stopped to greet us, a normal routine. All the corpers we've not seen the entire week come around. Turning the clearance to a meet and greet event. Most corpers complimented my hair without the dramatic expression the people of Langtang had used. Soon after, a tall, very dark dude stopped to greet us. I had never seen him before. But it was normal considering all the ghost corpers that come in just for their clearance. He complimented my hair do and asked if it was possible for him to do same. I smiled my generic nice smile and said yes...he was obviously making a pass at me. He said he was going to get my number later to ask how it would be done...it was such a weak line, even my subconscious drew her mouth out knowing he could have done better. I wasn't as bothered about the line as my subconscious was. Somehow, guys were adding up, and I couldn't do anything about it. Not visit them, not letting them visit. I was just piling them up.
Soon after that, stream 2 came in. Somehow, only one girl was brought to Langtang. I felt bad for our boys. I'm sure they were expecting new fishes, that would jump their nets. It wasn't funny though. It was a nationwide lack for girls. At that point, some of them started considering the indigenes.
Bass didn't call and I had assumed he was one of the few that take a number and send it into the abyss. Until our CLO sent a WhatsApp message asking if I knew the guy in a picture he had sent. And if he should send my number to him. Because the guy said he lost it. I said no. I honestly couldn't recognize him. I told Tay about it and showed her the picture. Surprisingly, she recognized him. I still didn't let our CLO give him the number. 'For loosing it, he has to get it again'. I thought...
To be cont'd

I was home watching castle on Tay's laptop. She was probably feeling pity for me and always gave her laptop to me whenever she wasn't using it. I knew my boundary too, and never asked for it except she offers. After all she wasn't the own that asked me to travel to Jos. I was engrossed in the e eccentric character of Nathan Filion. My phone ringing distracted me briefly from the movie. True caller already providing the name of my caller. Name seemed familiar. I picked up, not asking who it was. I was going to decipher who had the voice like I always did. The caller introduced himself as Bass, same guy who had taken my number. He apologized for not calling earlier and gave a story about how he lost my number. His voice on the phone almost blew me away. The way he talked, it was like nothing I've heard before. It was what I always imagined When I read a novel and the main character is described as having a baritone. The slight stutter he gave as he talked even made him sound sexier. When I finally dropped the call, I knew immediately something was wrong. And I told Tay, ' he speaks so well' she looked at me, not quite understanding what I was saying. He had asked if he could send me a message of WhatsApp...how can I say no? When I clearly want to keep hearing that voice. Honestly, Morgan Freeman had nothing on him. And as his first message entered my phone. The sound of the WhatsApp ring gave me a kind of joy I've never felt before.
We chatted continuously. And as we did, we got closer.
Tay had begged me to accompany her to Jos, since she doesn't know anywhere. I didn't want to go. I was avoiding Jos like a flea. And I told her that. She promised to pay my transport fare to and fro, because I've not been paid. I refused and told her it would be too much on her. Somehow Lanle joined in begging and I agreed. They always had a way of making me bend for them and every time they did that, I jokingly told them it was because I was a minority. I finally agreed. Bass was in jos, and so I quickly told him. He was happy and suggested we shared a taxi back to Langtang together. I wasn't excited about going to Jos this time. The journey was boring and tiring. When I got to the door of the house, my mind skipped a beat. It was only when Tay asked that I open The door, that I realized that I had just been standing there. What I felt wasn't fear or regret. It was something else. And I hated that I was showing weakness. It was just a stupid laptop. I shook off the feeling and opened the door. We kept her things inside and immediately left for the secretariat. By evening, I brought out Tay's laptop to continue with castle. G and Juls exclaimed the same time. 'You've brought another laptop here? ' I just waved them off as being too dramatic. I had little sleep that night. And by 6 am, we were on our way to Plateau riders pack. We walked to where the bus going to Oyo state parked. Just then, I met Ide. It seemed like forever since we last saw. He clearly surprised. We gave ourselves the awkward side hugs. And talked about stuff. He was going home to Oyo. He apologized for ditching me in camp. Telling me his girlfriend was pissed seeing us together all the time. A lousy excuse I thought, at least he could have told me that.
I waved goodbye to them and left to tour Jos alone.
I finally met Bass up and we left together on the taxi. Best taxi experience I've had... We talked about everything. Somehow I wasn't uncomfortable in the taxi...and trust me, I always get uncomfortable in a taxi. He asked if he could visit the next day...and of course I agreed.
|Re: Diary Of An Anonymous Corper by eitsei(m): 7:34pm On Jan 15|
I think I like where this is heading
|Re: Diary Of An Anonymous Corper by gh0sts: 8:39am On Jan 16|
I had never seen my room this way. It felt empty. I felt like if I should talk, it would echo. It felt lonely. I just wanted to run out of my room and go to a crowded place. I dropped my handbag in the middle of the room. Changed my sneakers to slippers and ran to Lanle's place. Luckily, Lanle prepared stew for me. And it was what I ate when I came back at night.
Reading became the only way to pass time...that, and sleeping.
Bass finally came over to see me. I had been looking forward to that visit...it was one of the only thing that kept me sane. The expectation. He told me about the day he first saw me. At the field in Pilgani, when I first got to Langtang. He serves there...a place worse than Langtang North...so bad. He sat on my mattress that doubled as a chair. We talked about so many stuff. He had a quiet, cool demeanor...every minute I spent with him, I liked him more. He never left the end of bed where he sat to my end. We sat apart talking and laughing not once coming close. I never knew a man could maintain space that much. Before the end of the day, I knew almost everything about him.
His visits became quite frequent. And every time he does something that made me like him more. I always walk him out, whenever he was leaving. The first time he hugged me, as I stood outside my gate wearing my short shorts. He said something I couldn't hear. The bike that was going to drop him stood there waiting for us, watching us the whole time. He repeated what he said. When I complained again that I couldn't hear. He asked that I came close. And, just when I got to where he was, he stretched out his arm and drew me gently to his chest wrapping his arms around me. It was the most romantic thing I've experienced, honestly. And I felt awkward, especially when the bike man laughed. I knew what I was feeling wasn't just 'like' anymore. It was getting higher than that...
Somehow, I just couldn't keep the feeling to myself. I was excited whenever my phone rang. Or a WhatsApp message entered my phone...he was the only person I wanted to talk to. And gradually, on my list of boys, it was Bass and others. I didn't care about fineboy, or lex or anybody. And most times I leave their messages without a reply. I removed my read receipts, so they can't tell I've read their messages. And as time went on. I talk about him more. Lanle was at the receiving end..although, she always reminds me of the many guys, no guy person I was. It was the only way she could tell me I was falling hard. I found myself talking like he would...with the stutter. I was always wishing he was online, even when I knew the horrible light situation. I ate more, because I didn't want to disappoint him whenever he asked if I'd eaten. He was all I could think about...somehow, Langtang North wasn't such a bad place.
First time I visited him, he had asked that I helped him withdraw some monies from the bank. There isn't any in Pilani where he stays. He was going to be traveling to Jos the next day. He was always shuttling Jos and Langtang. I called Lanle to tell her where I was going just in case. And also to ask if it was a good move...since I was a novice na. And I liked this one. I didn't want anything to spoil it before it started.
His hugs were always something to look up to...it was always like a massage. He always hugs like he would take the life out of me. Not to kill me, but to make us one. And as he hugged me now, I felt comfortable. Happy I was there, I didn't care anymore about relationship correctness. I just knew I wanted to be in his arms forever. He gave me food to eat and we talked about all the things that happened since we last saw, retouching the once we've already talked about.
By evening, I announced that it was time I left...although I wanted to stay. But I wasn't going to chase him with desperation. I didn't even know words like that until now. I was never desperate, eager, loving to all the guys I've met. But with Bass, I was experiencing new things, new feelings and I couldn't help myself. The more I tried to stop myself from liking him, the more I liked him. He pleaded that I didn't go...my heart. Stupid, stupid heart shouted hurrah and hurriedly said yes. But thank God for my brain. It still functioned properly and it brought out a list of excuses why I shouldn't stay. All those excuses didn't mean poo, when he kissed me after asking. My brain said no, but my lips said yes. The kiss burned the list in a flame of passion...I knew just then that he had got me. Gently, it became heated with passion and I was on the bed...well, I had my first orgasm and it was the best thing I had experienced.
