Our order was served and we buried all our attention into it. It was very delicious and peppery and so to avoid the pepper entering the wrong track, we pretentiously gave it all our attention. After we devoured it, I placed another order for two bottles of soft drink.
“I have this link that could help us ‘runs’ our posting to a very good PPA (Place of Primary Assignment), don’t know if you are interested. I said breaking the silence after taking a gulp from my bottle.
“Hmmm!! Who is this link?”
“You don’t have to worry yourself about that, just indicate your interest and leave the rest to me.”
“I am asking because someone already sold that idea to me which I didn’t buy. I wanted to confirm your interest before giving the person a reply.”
“Who is the person?”
“Ok you are now asking for my source but just a few seconds ago you refused telling me yours, how fair is that?”
“Are we now playing a game of fairness here?”
“Yea exactly who you are, always trying to exonerate yourself from situations which you created while expecting every other person to be held back into it. Well it’s Kendy. He wants to help me with the posting.”
“Pull out your phone now and tell him hell to the no that you ain’t interested.”
“Yea exactly the reason why I didn’t want to tell you the source, I know you are going to push it into the trash can.”
“Danm right that’s where I just pushed it and that’s where its gonna be.” I annoyingly retorted.
“Well before we leave it in the trash can according to you, why not tell me the market from which you are buying yours and we can compare the credibility and legitimacy because I sure as hell trust this Kendy source.”
“Just for the record, there is no way I am going down with you on that Kendy link. Call it my pride or whatever you think but if that’s the only link left in this world, then I will rather leave my fate with NYSC to post me where they like.”
“Noted, but first tell me who is selling you this link.”
“There is this friend I recently met, that’s how I got to know about it.”
“And who is this friend you recently met?”
“Does it matter who the person is?”
“You can just stop trying to play smart with me because if it’s what my mind is telling me, then be rest assured that there is no way that I am buying it.”
“And what is your mind telling you because I know it’s telling you shits right now.”
She looked at me with disdain and scoffed. “Is this your link not coming from Precious?” she asked finally.
Finally it was my time to scoff. “Your mind always has a funny way of roaming around. But sorry to disappoint you, it has nothing to do with Precious.”
“Then who the hell is this? If you aren’t going to talk, then be rest assured that I am going with Kendy with or without your consent.” She said and stood up to leave.
“Don’t walk out me, don’t try it.”
“You know what? Get the f**ck out of my head. If you are ready to talk let me know.” She said and walked away.
I paid for the drinks and left. I know I could be defensive sometimes on some issues if not, nothing stops me from telling her who brought the idea to me. On the contrary, I know she wouldn’t accept it coming from another girl since I couldn’t accept it coming from a guy from her side.
I was walking towards my hostel lost in thought when all of a sudden something caught my eyes. Looking towards the direction, I saw Kendy walking Shania down to her hostel both holding hands. I stood shocked as I stared at them. Just few minutes ago she left me and she is with him holding hands already walking to her hostel. I felt my ego poached. How could she do that? So she now rushes to him at every slightest issue.
“Hey! What are you staring at?” Purity asked interrupting my thoughts as she stood beside me.
“Errmm!!…. nothing.” I replied drawing my gaze away from them.
“Don’t tell me that, you have been looking towards that direction for over five minutes.”
“Please not now.”
“Not now what? I just asked what you are staring at and you are tell
