I seem having problem of Mikolo constantly following me, turning up unexpectedly especially when i least expected him to show up for whatever reason.
But the truth is, true stalkers can make your life a living hell; stalking is scary, it’s dangerous and in many cases, illegal.
However as i stepped out from my room with a plate of rice around 9:00pm, i ran into him again, as he was coming out from the hostel balcony, and he smiled as he saw me,
Mikolo: “Gurl, you look ok now?” he asked jovially, while i smiled and passed him……… Yousuf was very happy when i brought the rice for him, and he thanked me countless times as he devoured it, while i smiled confidently as i watched him eat…….
I really didn’t tell him about Mikolo’s visit, which appeared very irrelevant to be discussed at that time, but then a part of me really urged me to tell him, but i suppressed and kept it to myself, even though i really didn’t know whether i did the right thing, especially with the events which later unfolded.
Me: “please can you sleep in my room tonight?” i heard myself ask Yousuf, who froze for a while as he stared at me in surprise. I really didn’t know what pushed me to make such demand, but i guess it was because i very much scared of Mikolo and what he could do, which really didn’t make a whole lot of sense, but then i equally knew in my mind that i secretly wanted to spend the night with Yousuf..,…
However i also knew what i did when i made such demand, because as a girl it could have been easier for me to sleep in his room, but because of my pride i had rephrased my demand, which i knew any sharp guy would understand the hidden meaning……..
But Yousuf really was at lost on what to say, and he just stared at me for a while before he was able to find his voice,
Yousuf: “hope everything is okay?” he asked with concern, while i just nodded,
Me: “yea it’s just that i’m having a bad feeling which is making me to be scared” i replied,
Yousuf: “don’t worry dear, i will be by your side tonight” he assured me with a smile, while i smiled in appreciation, even though i equally was disappointed that he didn’t insist for me to sleep in his room, which most guys would have done…….
However nothing really happened that night in my room, even though we both laid awake till very late in the night. I really was awake because it was my first time of spending the night with another boy, since i broke up with my Ex, while i easily noticed that Yousuf was also awake, because he kept tossing around on my bed. I really didn’t know whether it was because he was uncomfortable in my room that made him toss around, or because he was summoning the courage to touch me…
He finally drew close and held me, which delighted me very much, but i kept quiet and pretended to be asleep. To my greatest dismay he didn’t go further or do anything else to me, before we finally slept…….
Hmmmm, anyway even though i was disappointed that night, my respect for him equally grew, because he behaved like a gentleman…….
We woke up very late the following morning, and it was a steady knock on my door which really woke us, and i really was forced to open my door, when the person knocking refused to give up……..
It was precisely 7:05AM when i opened my door that fateful morning, to see Mikolo standing on my door-way, with hands in his pocket, and a fixed smile on his face……
I blocked my slightly opened door with my body, which prevented him from walking into my room, just like he did the previous day. However he never showed any surprise, but instead continued to smile sweetly…….
Mikolo: “how was your night, i came as soon as i woke up, because i want your face to be the first thing i will see this morning” he said, while i smiled,
Me: “thanks i’m very fine, but you also woke me from sleep” i complained as i rubbed my eyes…….
Mikolo: “i’m so sorry dear, will you be going out today?” he asked,
Me: “yea i will and why do you ask?” i replied,
Mikolo: “i just want to spend some time with you” he explained, while i shruggled, “well that will be another day” i answered………
Instead of leaving, he still stood and watched me, while i returned his gaze without knowing what else to say to him,
Mikolo: “you are really so beautiful dear, and i will do anything just to win your heart” he said sweetly and fluently, while i smiled,
Me: “thanks sha, but you need not bother because you won’t succeed, moreover i already have a guy” i replied calmly, which made him to smile,
Mikolo: “you mean him?” he asked, as he pointed towards Yousuf’s room……..
Me: “please i’m yet to brush nor clean up, lets talk later” i heard myself say to him, but just that moment Joyce appeared from nowhere and stood beside him, with a smile,
Joyce: “baby good morning, i’m so sorry i was unable to show up yesterday, abeg shift make i enter nah” she said playfully, while my legs shook, as my heart leaped, because Yousuf was in my room, probably still in my bed, a situation i really didn’t want her to witness, because i really havn’t told her much about Yousuf, and she might misinterpret the whole thing…….
Joyce: “baby give way nah, make i enter” she said again, while i hesitantly opened my door a little wider, in order for her to enter,
Me: “Mikolo thanks for checking up on me, we will continue our discussion some other time” i said to Mikolo with a sweet smile, as i closed my door………
With a fast beating heart, i turned and faced my room, but surprisinly i saw Yousuf seated at the edge of my bed, well composed and engrossed in his mobile phone which he was playing with. I breathed deeply…….
Yet Joyce still smiled and eyed me suspiciously, as she turned to face me again……
Yousuf: “we will chat later since your friend is already here” i heard Ben say nervously, as he stood up and left, while i smiled as i locked my door before facing Joyce again, who still continued to look at me suspiciously…….
Joyce: “i just noticed many things” she said to me with a smile,
Me: “things like what?” i asked, but she just shruggled……
Joyce: “dear friend, hope you are not planning to keep this away from me??” she asked with a little laugh,
Joyce: “Hope you are not planning to deny that you just slept with Yousuf??” she seriously asked me, while i gasped…….
Me: “no i didn’t ooo” i seriously replied as i fell on my bed, and clutched my teddy bear with a smile,
Joyce: “sharrap you liar” i heard Joyce say with a smile,
Joyce: “didn’t Yousuf sleep here last night?” she asked seriously, as if she already was aware he did, while i wondered whether she really knew, or was just trying to play with my intelligence……
I breathed deeply and stared at her,
Me: “yes he did, but there was no sex ooo” i replied, while her face lit up momentarily with bright eyes, which soon died away as she stared at me again in surprise,
Joyce: “huh what did you just say?? Do you mean you two didn’t??” she asked, while i seriously nodded to her,
Me: “yea we didn’t do anything, he is a complete gentleman” i said with a smile……
Joyce: “abeg go jare, you wan tell me, you didn’t wet your pant as you dey wait for him to do something?” she asked with a naughty smile,
Me: “comot there, you chukuchuku girl, you too like bad thing, do you think everybody behaves like you, thank God you no be man tufiakwa! things for happen well for your head” i said to her, while she laughed out loud……
Joyce: “i was on my way coming, when i saw you both sneaking into your room last night so i just turned and returned to my room, but i came here this early, in order to confirm whether he actually slept here” she explained,
Me: “infact you are jobless” i said to her with a smile…….
Joyce: “so what’s up with you and Mikolo?” she enquired, while i shruggled,
Me: “i don’t know what is wrong with that boy, he just started showing interest in me” i replied with a yawn,
Joyce: “please be careful with that wolf ooo, don’t mind his innocent face, he is very dangerous” she advised me……
We chatted all through that morning happily, and we really had a great time, because Joyce never lacks topics and so we ate together, gisted and joked till noon, when she left for her room.
I immediately freshened up as soon as she left, before calling Yousuf on phone, in order to know where he was,
Yousuf: “i went to see my uncle, i will be back shortly” he replied,
Me: “abeg buy something when returning, including Naija movies oo” i begged,
Yousuf: “ok madam i will” he replied, while i smiled……
I had barely ended the phone call when i heard someone knock on my door, i immediately knew it was Mikolo which really made my body temperature rise a bit. I breathed deeply and reached for my door, which i quietly opened, while he stood at the doorway with his usual deceiving smile………
Mikolo: “may i come in?” he politely asked, while i…. WHAT HAPPEN NEXT???
