Nice story, I'm feeling it, keep doing great.
|Re: Undecided by millieademi: 12:19pm On Mar 15|
Well, well, well.... What do we have here? Destiny is playing a rather cruel joke on Dibbz.
Advice: try Covenant or Babcock. Or better yet go abroad or online school.

|Re: Undecided by dimssy(m): 10:49pm On Mar 15|
Wow...that's a big one.
|Re: Undecided by Moura7(m): 1:52pm On Mar 16|
Fate had dealt me another huge blow with the recent turn of events now. What did I do wrong to be dished this kind of unfairness at this young age.
I'm too young to be this burdened with life, Lord knows I would've been better off in prison.
At least, no one judged anybody there but then I have to step up for my family as they have been there for me.
Mum had travelled the day before, after introducing me as the acting CEO till dad was fully for again. As expected, not everyone welcomed this development with open arms, especially Mr George the General manager.
Today's the day i start school by I'm still in bed staring at the ceiling, the house is empty save for the maids and I feel so alone and sad. I don't really know how I'm going to get through this, how it's gon be when I see her again after all these years.
Yes, I admit she's like 96% of the reason why I don't want to go to that particular school.
I know I said I was over er and just all about myself now but that was before I knew life would throw me this curve ball.
How am I suppose to avoid her all through and act whenever we eventually cross parts, will I be able to stand the gate in her eyes whenever she sees me? Lord pls help your son.
After much deliberation, I decided to call the one person that would give me the best advice concerning this issue.
'Hello your call is being forwarded to Rockers Detention Center, do you accept this...............'
"Yes I do ", I replied, cutting the automated network lady off.
"Who are you and what do you want?", came Drago's icy voice through the phone.
"Oh, cut the deadly voice crap, like you're capable of matching me on a one on one", I smiling.
"Hey kiddo, how're you doing?", He said, his voice more friendly now.
"Yeah, I'm fine", I replied.
"You know for a free man, you sound pretty happy", he replied sarcastically.
"Seriously, what's wrong kid, everything alright at home?", He continued.
I signed and then intimated him with the recent turn out and sought his advice on how to go about it.
"Well, kid one thing's for sure which is the fact that you've got to do this for your family, man. I know it's kinda unfair to you but its family we are talking about now, they're really all you've got and now they need you so you just have to be there for them and concerning the school issue, dude block your mind against all people would say or how they'd react. Just know it's not gon be easy, but set your mind on the truth which is that you're innocent and live , enjoy and make the most of your life there, do not care what anyone thinks including Fola, I'm sorry man buy you gotta let her go, for real this time, she's not worth it. Time to move on kid and don't call me again", Drago finished.
After the call, I felt better, I'm really going to try and see this through.
From the moment I parked my Ferrari in the school's parking lot, eyes trailed me till I left for home that day. As I walked through tge hallway, I could hear whispers everywhere like 'he's the one! yeah the rapist, convict' and all that.
This is going to be alot harder than I thought.
I got to my Dept to get my class schedule, I was majoring in business management and after what seemed like hours, I finally found the hall my first lecture was holding.
After the introduction by the lecturer, I located a seat at the far back, trying my best to avoid the nasty stares and block out the whispers. It's just my first day and its like this already, how'd I survive 4years here.
The lecturer announced that we take out our PCs foe an exercise but I forgot to come with one and as I tried to look to see if I could pair with someone but that gesture alone caused the closest person to me to shift away with his laptop...Great! Now I'm treated like I've got some plague, just great.
"Dick move, Mike and to think that you're avoiding someone when you're the one to be avoided since you've got syphilis", I heard someone say to the jerk that shifted away.
"Here, we can share mine", the same person said to me this time.
I looked from the funny and horrified look on the face of the jerk to one of the prettiest faces I've seen. What hooked me more was her big eyes, they were just captivating especially when she batted them. Time to snap out of all this, she's quite the looker but that's the last thing on my mind right now.
I joined her and she was really helpful in bringing me up to date in what was taught. I figured she's a really cool person and quite fun to be with, for a moment I just felt like I was free from everything. We were caught a few times by the lecturer but we just apologized and continued with what we were doing.
The lecture soon ended and we were free to talk more.
"Uhm, forgive my manners, I haven't even introduced myself , my name is D......"
"Onyekachi Manuel aka Dibz", she cut me off with a smile on her face.
" I know who you are and almost everything and hey, I'm not one to judge, whatever happened in the past stays there. This is the present now, God's gift for us to make things better", she said still smiling. So apparently, she also a human smiley.
"So that means you're not freaked out by me", I asked unsure.
"Of course silly, besides what's there to be freaked out by, well except for the fact that you're fineeeeee!!!!!, she said.
Okay, she also just says anything that comes to her mind, another point noted.
"So are you going to tell me your name?",I asked.
"Oh sorry, my bad I'm Olivia- Olivia Dokubo", she said.
I stiffened as I heard her last name.
"Uhm, did you say Dokubo?, I asked trying to be sure I heard right.
"Yeah", she replied.
No this is not happening.
"OK, do you by any chance know any Folakemi Dokubo?", I asked holding my breath.
'pls say no, pls say no', I said in my mind
"Of course, I know Fola, she's my cousin", she answered gleefully shattering me apart.

|Re: Undecided by dimssy(m): 8:27am On Mar 19|
Uncle Moura7, how hath thou?
|Re: Undecided by Moura7(m): 2:27pm On Mar 20|
OK now I'm beginning to think that I'm cursed in some way. Here I am trying to avoid Fola by any means possible and then the first nice person I come across here just happens to be her cousin.
Just how unfair can my life get right now.
Things pretty much became awkward after Olivia's revelation. Since I didn't have any other lectures till later in the afternoon, I decided to just walk round the school and clear my head, it always seems to work for me.
During my walk, I got a call from Josh asking to meet up. We met a nice lounge in the premises and got talking about my day
"Dude, I really think you should just try to block out everything and just live your life", Josh said, munching on some fries.
"Yeah, that's just so easy", I replied sarcastically.
"Wonder why I hadn't thought of that", I continued.
"I'm sorry bro", he said chuckling a bit. "All I'm saying is that nobody should decide who you can be friends with or not but you, just you alone".
"I know man but I don't want any trouble with Fola, you know how crazy she can be now, then imagine how'd she'll react when she realizes I'm friends with her cousin", I said taking a sip from my Martini.
"Hi Josh", some girls greeted, giggling as they walked away.
I shook my head smiling as I watched them leave. This guy won't just change with this playboy persona he often fronts.
"And you wonder why you and T won't work out", I said.
"Huh, what do you mean, what's she got to do with anything now?, He asked confused.
"How would you expect her to want to be with you when you're always flirting with girls all the time".
"Uhhh, one, T made it clear that we can't be together because that's how girls are, just confused creatures that don't know what they want but in T's case, she just likes seeing me suffer.
Two, we are talking about you here and not me, so let's just stick to the main topic, you", he said sounding pissed off.
"Hey bro, I'm sorry didn't mean to intrude and try to use your own case to feel better about mine. As for me, I'm steering clear from Olivia, don't need more complications in my life now", I replied , gulping down the remaining contents of my glass.
"Coward", he hissed. "You're just concerned Fola might hate you more if she finds out you're rolling with her cousin, who is a very nice girl by the way, can't believe you're still bedazzled by her even after she abandoned you just like that".
Now I thought I had really come to terms with the fact that Fola had moved on and I can't have her again buy hearing Josh spell it out again just hurt afresh. I immediately reached for his drink and downed it again, maybe if I can get drunk and just be free from all these for a while I'll be abit fine.
"Wow, that bad huh?", Josh said frowning at his now empty cup.
"Well, move on cus she's moved on, with Henry too", he continued.
"Nice Josh, way to make me feel better. Did you call me out here to make me more miserable?", I asked with a slight chuckle in my voice, but it was actually a chuckle of great pain.
"I'm sorry man, my bad, let me get you another drink seems you need it more than I do .
As Josh went to get more drinks, my phone chimed, it was a text from my mum. While replying, a quite familiar fragrance engulfed my nostrils. I looked up to see a smiling Olivia in front of me.
"Hey, there you are, you just disappeared", she said sitting beside me.
"Yeah, I needed some air", I replied dryly.
She smiled a bit. "After one lecture?", she asked.
I didn't respond, instead I looked away checking the lounge out.
"Uhmm, are you okay, did I do something wrong?", She asked softly. I felt bad immediately at the thought of her thinking it was her fault.
"No no, it's not you. I'm not just feeling okay now, a slight migraine that's all", I said.
"Oh really sorry about that, I'll leave now. I hope you feel better soon", she said
Just then, I caught whiff of another fragrance I can never ever forget in my life. A fragrance I had become all too familiar with. I turned my eyes and it locked with Fola's immediately as she walked towards our table hand hooked on Henry's arm. They seemed to be enjoying a joke or so before Fola spotted me and her face turned pale. They paused in their tracks as they stared at me, their faces ghost white.
Fola's eyes looked from me to Olivia, and a frown marred her beautiful face.
"Sorry man, I took time, it's just that there's this pretty bartender chic that..........", Josh was saying as he approached me till he saw the recent development.
"Oh shit", he muttered.........TBC

|Re: Undecided by Moura7(m): 1:22pm On Mar 21|
Wow...thanks man I really appreciate
|Re: Undecided by Moura7(m): 1:56pm On Mar 21|
It's been three years since that horrible experience where the love of my life or so I thought, was locked up for attempting to rape my friend.
Many nights, I tried to wrap my head round the reason he did something like that. Was I not living enough or was I not pretty enough? I just can't understand why he'd do something so monstrous, the only reason that came to mind was that he was jealous I was in Henry's house practicing for a play which I think is disgustingly childish.
There were times I wondered if he really did it, then the evidences against him were crystal undisputable. He did it, he molested poor Hailey all because she seemed to like him he thought he could have his way with her. Even when she tried to resist he resorted to violence. His barbaric act had left the poor girl traumatized and I had to have my heart break continuously as I tried to console her cause I felt responsible in a way.
I became a shadow of myself, lost weight significantly and even got sick too. T and the guys tried to console they best they could and I really appreciate all they did for me but their persistence on the conviction that Dibz's somehow innocent of all the charges against him almost cost us our friendship.
T and I didn't speak for weeks when I found out that she was visiting him in prison for sometime now, like how can they be so blind to all the forensic evidences against him, how possible is that.
Even my Dad who hasn't always been around claimed that he'd never seen me as happy as I had been during the past months before the incident indicating that Dibz was the reason for my happiness and that maybe if I could just try and listen to Dibz explain himself then maybe I could somehow forgive him and find closure. You can just imagine what he said, what a big joker he is. How everybody seems brainwashed by this guy to still stand by him after what he did is beyond me. I can understand that his family stood by him but not our friends Na, cmon.
I won't lie sometimes I felt bad too that I wasn't by his side encouraging him like they're doing and sometimes i just felt like shutting up all these feelings of anger and hatred I now harbour against him and just be there for him regardless but the truth just keeps flashing in my mind reminding that because of his selfishness, a girl is traumatized and finding it hard to be normal again.
The only person that really stood by me and understood was Henry. Very much unlikely I know but its just like he got me and was very patient with me. He put up with my excesses and was just an angel throughout and before I knew it, we were dating again. Hailey got back from abroad a year later where she went for a sort of rehab camp to help her with the trauma.
So as we all enrolled into the same college, everything was returning back to normal.
Everybody had moved on and life was beginning to feel right again, but as they say, good things don't last long.
Coming to lunch and laughing to a joke by Henry about what happened in his lecture earlier, my eyes caught a familiar figure.
At first, I didn't know it was him cause although the figure seemed familiar, it was more brawn plus the hair was up in a bun and there was the beards too, but the mannerisms and gestures screamed Dibz. So to be sure, I suggested we use the table close to the one this person was using and as we approached, he turned and my eyes locked with those eyes that captivated my heart the first I saw them in finance class three years ago, and though I'm ashamed to admit, is still captivating me right now.................TBC
|Re: Undecided by Moura7(m): 1:57pm On Mar 21|
So sorry it's short..again
I'd try and drop something this evening
|Re: Undecided by Dibixxx1(m): 6:59pm On Mar 21|
Wow just wow.... thanks OP
|Re: Undecided by jupitre(m): 8:28pm On Mar 21|
We're waiting bro...
|Re: Undecided by Moura7(m): 9:49pm On Mar 21|
'Oh this has to be some sick joke, it has to be', I said in my head as I confirmed it was really him.
How is it possible that he's here now when his sentence was for 10yrs and another thing is how does he know Olivia?
He better not be try anything funny with her or else I'd kill him this time with my bare hands and joyfully do life in jail.
."What are you doing here?", I asked, my voice in a shivering whisper.
"Uhm, hey why don't we all just calm down and talk about this some other time, yh?, Josh said trying to ease the tension when Dibz didn't answer but just stared at me.
"Wow dude, I'm really impressed", Henry said clapping. "You know I never knew you had it in you to escape prison which begs the question, how - or maybe your buddy here helped you".
"Why don't I help disfigure your shitty face ", Josh said , walking towards Henry gingerly looking ready for a fight.
For the first time since we came there, Dibz reacted. He stood up and held Josh back from trying to fulfil his words to Henry. All the while, I just fixed my eyes on him looking at just how much he's changed , physically I mean.
"Don't sweat it bro, he's not worth it", Dibz said, soothing Josh.
"Awwwwww, how cute", Henry mocked. "I'm so touched by this bromance display by you two I think I'm becoming gay", he continued.
Dibz just chuckled at that, shaking his head. He didn't seem fazed at all by Henry's jabs.
"Good luck with that then", Dibz said smiling as he picked his bag up preparing to leave.
"Haha, maybe in my next life cus this one's already occupied with this hotness", Henry replied, snaking his arm round my waist and pecking the nape of my neck.
Then I saw the reaction I'd been waiting to see all along. Dibz expression turned cold - but just for a moment and then that sly smile returned again.
"Good for you then", Dibz replied .
Suddenly being in Henry's arms didn't feel so right anymore. I shifted out of his reach slightly but I didn't fail to catch the look of confusion on his face at my subtle act. I just smile reassuringly at him and that seemed ease everything as he smiled too.
As Dibz and Henry tried to walk away, I remembered that he hadn't really answered my question.
"You didn't answer me you know and how do you know my cousin too", I asked and they stopped in their tracks.
"Oh, he's in one of my classes", Olivia spoke for the first time since I arrived there.
"Classes? Like he's a student?", I asked confused. Oh Lord pls let it not be what I'm thinking, no he can't possibly be attending this school , how's that even possible he's a prisoner.
"Duh, that's kinda what attending classes is all about....being a student? ", Olivia answered sarcastically.
"But how...how can it be.... you're.. you're still a prisoner", I stuttered.
"Well, not anymore, looks like justice is finally going to come around now", Josh said, as he smirked at me. I don't even know what his problem with me is all about, I'm not the one that locked his best buddy up.
"I'm a free man now, well technically not so free, I was granted a pardon by the president but on probation still", Dibz spoke to me for the first time, holding my gaze as he did so.
How I was able to hold myself from falling beats me and it hurt me ..so bad that he still affected me like this even in the littlest of ways.
'why why Fola, why are you still shaken by this this...this rapist. Yes call him what he is, a rapist, maybe you'd get over him faster if you see him as that' ,I said in my head.
"Have you no shame?", I said icily. "Haven't you done enough? Did you have to come back here and remind us of the damage you caused? Haven't we suffered enough at your wickedness", I continued.
"Did you have to come back and ruin more lives eh? Are you that monstrous?", I went on.
"Fola that's enough, Dude let's go don't listen to her", Josh said pulling Dibz's statue like figure with him as he walked way, but Dibz didn't move, he just stared at me , his face expressionless.
"Ah Fola, calm down pls, don't be harsh", Olivia said.
Her statement boiled me the more. How can she be advocating for him too? She just met him for like what, five minutes? And she's already on his side even after everything she's heard about him. This thing about him that always makes people be attracted to him and want to protect him even after what he's done beats me.
"How dare you, Olivia, how dare you?", I faced her.
"This monster almost shattered a fellow girl's life and you're saying I'm harsh? What if it was me, huh?".
"Do you know how long it took before Hailey got back herself and built back her life...pls don't say that again and you have to stay away from him, don't be deceived by his words and personality, he's a monster", I went on.
Now tears were running down my eyes, it felt like it was happening all over again all at the same time. By now, the few people around had starting looking at us , smartphones out videoing.
"I know he deserves to pay for what he's done but at least he went to prison for three years , that's still something", Olivia said trying to pacify me. As she talked about him deserving to be punished, Dibz shot her a glance with pain on his face. I guess he didn't expect her to agree with me, no matter how small she agreed.
I smirked at that, feeling a bit happy that someone actually believes he's guilty. After that I walked off with Henry, I also took Olivia with me as I didn't want her anywhere near him at all.....TBC
