“Donald, you know I love you…as much as I try, I can’t quite hide it completely from you. However, love is not enough sometimes to make a relationship work. I am not sure I should get back with you after everything that has happened in the past few months. Besides, there is something I have not told you.” Maureen paused and looked at him. He was listening with a rapt attention. “I am not sure you’d still want to date me after I have told you about it.” “Go ahead and tell me.” “You must never mention it to anyone else. It must stay between us whether we date each other or not.” “I will not mention it to another person.” “Is that a promise?” “Yes, it is.” “Well, I…the point is…in fact…the truth is something happened between your friend, Siji and I.” “What do you mean?” “You know what I mean. After the incident with Enem, Chinwe and Wendy, Siji was there for me as a friend. He did ask me out, but I said no…because of you. Somehow, he hung around and one thing led to the other. I can’t say that I am proud of it, but I wanted to let you know ahead of time.” Donald looked at her, not sure how to react. He was disappointed, yet at the same time, he knew he had done worse.

“So, what do you want now?” Donald asked. “I am not sure yet. If you still want to be with me, I guess we should stay friends at first and try to work through things over time,” Maureen answered. “That sounds fine by me,” replied Donald. Not long after Donald had left, Foluke stopped by to see Maureen. “What was he doing here? Are you still talking to that guy?” Foluke asked in a hushed tone. “Foluke, are you concerned about me or are you just concerned about yourself?” Maureen asked her. “What do you mean?” “Why are you so keen to make sure that I don’t date this guy? For sure Donald has done some terrible things, but it seems there is more to your opposition towards him.” “No, I just don’t think he is good for you. I don’t want to see you get broken hearted.” “Really? I guess that was what you felt when he dumped you? You are my good friend Foluke, and I appreciate that you look after me. At the same time, I understand that something went on between you and Donald. I know all about it now. We all make mistakes. Let me make mine and hopefully learn from them.”

“Donald told you about us?” “Yes, he did. He wants to be completely honest with me from now on.” “I am not so proud of myself for that. I was new on campus and he charmed his way into my weak heart. Soon, he left me for another girl. I have hated him ever since. Sincerely, I did not want you to go through the same thing. On the other hand, I guess I was trying to protect my little secret. I am sorry for being a little selfish on that one.” “It is okay. I guess I would have done the same thing.” When Foluke returned to her room, she was fuming. How dare he tell Maureen about us? She thought to herself. I will make him pay for this. Using me like that was hurtful enough, now why would he go about telling my friend about it just to win her heart? To appear holy and saintly? Yes indeed, you are a changed man Donald. I am going to show you that I too can be mean. She quickly walked over to her boyfriend’s room. Ifeanyi was watching TV when Foluke arrived. He was six foot seven inches tall. His frame was awe-inspiring. He smiled easily; an attribute that belied his true nature. Ifeanyi was the ‘capo’ of a feared student secret cult on campus. There were rumors that Ifeanyi had killed a lot of people. Some of Foluke’s friends had told her to end the relationship with Ifeanyi, but she turned a deaf ear on them. She felt safe and powerful, dating a figure as feared as Ifeanyi.

“What is that look on your face, my love?” Ifeanyi asked her. “There is something I need to tell you.” “Sit down honey and talk to me.” Foluke sat on the bed beside him, and placed his arm around her shoulders. “Before I met you, there was this guy I knew. We were just friends, but one evening I went to his room and…” Foluke stopped and began to cry. “What happened? You can tell me anything sweetheart.” Ifeanyi adored Foluke. He bragged to his friends about her equally tall frame, breathtaking curves, rich dark skin and alluring brown eyes. “He…he forced himself on me!” Her voice trailed off as she descended into another sobbing session. “He did what?” “He forced himself on me.” “How come you never told me about this?” “I just wanted to let it go, but now he is going around telling my friends that…that he did it with me and that I enjoyed it. He is saying all sorts of nasty things about me.”  “What is this guy’s name?” “Donald. Donald Obodo. He is a first year law student.” “He is a dead man,” Ifeanyi declared. “Please don’t kill him honey. Just beat that idiot thoroughly, but please don’t take his life. I don’t want his useless blood on my hands,” Foluke pleaded with Ifeanyi. He was breathing heavily as he reached for his phone to contact his boys.

Out of fear that Chinwe might go ahead and release the pictures, Wendy told Chidozie about them. “Again, I am sorry that I did not tell you this before. I was going to destroy the pictures. I have even spoken to your cousin, Donald. In fact, I have deleted every single of those pictures that I had, not knowing that this evil girl had taken them off my phone already.” “It is okay honey. I am glad you told me. It would be worse if I walked into campus and saw naked pictures of you and Donald all over campus. We have to find out how to get these pictures off this girl as soon as possible.” “How do you get the pictures off her? She is a tough girl. I doubt that she would let go of them.” “Just give me her phone number and leave the rest to me.” “Are you sure?” “Yes, I am my dear.” Wendy gave Chinwe’s phone number to him. Immediately, Chidozie called Chinwe. “Is that Chinwe?” He asked. “Yes, this is Chinwe.” Chinwe already knew who it was. She had saved Chidozie’s phone number on her phone.

“I understand you were the person who told me about Donald and Wendy. Wendy is trying to defend herself with all sorts of stories. I was wondering if you would be happy to meet with me because I don’t buy her stories anymore. This is too much for me to bear. How can she be playing around with my younger cousin? Please could you help me with more information? I want to end this relationship, but I need to make sure that I have enough facts to satisfy my conscience that I am doing the right thing,” Chidozie said persuasively. “I will be more than happy to tell you anything that would give you peace of mind. You don’t need a two-timing girl in your life. I have other things that would shock you if you saw them. When do you want to meet?” Chinwe jumped at the opportunity to destroy Wendy.

“I can’t believe she bought it,” said Wendy. “Greed is blinding. When people want what you have, they will go to great lengths to annex it from you, including destroying you if they have to,” Chidozie answered. “She is just obsessed with the idea of having a boyfriend by all means…boyfriend of a particular class though – in terms of appearance and economic status,” he added.

“I am very mad at Donald,” Siji complained to Daniel. “But I don’t see the reason why you should be mad at him. If Maureen wants him, there is nothing you can do about that,” Daniel replied. “I know you are right, but it does not stop me from being mad at him…and Maureen. I was there for her when Donald treated her like a piece of rag. We had a good time together and I thought she was mine, finally. Only for her to tell me that she did not want to pursue a relationship with me. I feel used!!!” “Most guys would look at it differently, Siji.” “That is if you don’t have feelings for the girl. I love her. I am the one that loves her. Donald just wants to use her and dump her again.” “Then, let her feel the pain. You cannot shield her from that. Some people like the drama, pain and heartbreak that go with breakups. They thrive off the attention. Maybe she is that type,” Daniel advised him. “How can you stand and watch the person you love walking into a pit of fire?” “There is nothing you can do about it, Siji. She is an adult. Besides, there is no proof that Donald has not changed. I hear he is different now.” “Donald? Change? Not in a million years.”

Siji’s phone rang. “Hello Donald,” he said into the mouthpiece. “My good friend, Siji. You couldn’t even wait for me to end my short relationship with Maureen before you swooped in.” “What do you mean, Donald?” You know what I mean. She told me all about it.” Siji could not believe his ears. Does this guy have some voodoo with which he controls girls? Siji wondered. He could not find words to answer Donald. “You are awfully quiet, my friend,” Donald said with a hint of sarcasm. “You were not with her at the time, Donald. I had every right to try to woo her.” “Yes you did…I was sharing my feelings with you all the while. I had no idea you were eyeing her as well. You should be ashamed of yourself. You are not a man. You could have at least told me that you wanted to approach her…out of respect for our friendship. You know how I feel about her.” “You feel nothing for anybody, Donald. It is all about you. Maureen deserves better.” “You can’t make that decision, Siji. She decides who she wants. I just wanted to let you know that I am aware of what you did.” “By the way, when you slept with Foluke, her best friend, did you tell her?” “That was before I even got to know Maureen. I am disappointed in you, Siji.” Siji stared angrily at his phone after Donald had hung up.
