It was really a day well spent as I walked out of Chitis with
Cindy. It wasn't just like a normal first date. There was no
awkward silence, and a question and answer kind of session.
The connection was there. We flowed like we have known each
other for ages. Within me, I knew that whenever I decide to pop
the question, the answer is going to come out in positive.
We talked school politics, state politics, religion, culture and
every other thing that was left to be talked about. Her view
were so articulate. She seemed to know a lot about everything.
I was impressed by her views and I also made sure to leave an
impression with her.
I hailed a cab as we got outside the café. About to hop into the
waiting car, an "excuse me sir" caught me in my track. I
turned to see a waiter walking towards me. I did a quick
mental check. I know I paid my bills because I still have the
receipt. We didn't leave our phones behind or anything.
"Yes, can I help you" I said to the girl as she got close to me.
"Sorry sir, someone said I should give this to you" she said
handing over a piece of paper with #700 to me.
From the way she talked, I know she didn't want Cindy to hear
what she was saying.
"What for?" I asked collecting the paper together with the
money from her.
"I don't know, she just said I should give it to you" she said
and went back inside the café.
I took a quick glance at the note and saw a phone number with
a 'call me' written under it. Below the call me was another line
that read 'tell her you forgot your change if she asks'. I tried to
scan the café but I couldn't get a clear view.
"Oga if you no dey go again, tell your wife to come down make
I comot from here" the cab man shouted at me. I folded the
paper together with the money and inserted it into my pocket
and hopped into the waiting cab.
"Oga abeg no vex" I apologized to the driver to which he
nodded and eased the car into motion.
"Were you dey go?" he asked changing the gear.
"You go drop my wife for Okeke hostel and the drop me for
hilltop gate." As I said wife, Cindy raised her head for the first
time from her phone and smacked my shoulder smiling
revealing a beautiful set of dimples.
"Ok your money na 5H" he said throwing away his gaze
through the window.
"Ah Ah!! Oga no be 3H for drop inside school?" I asked
"You self, person wey God don bless give you this kind babe
wetin come be 5H na" he said turning to look at me. I took a
quick look at Cindy and she was smiling. Looking at the driver,
we made eye contact and he dimmed his eyes.
"Oga na 3H I get abeg"
"No wahala sha. Even if you no carry money, I for carry una
free because of this your girl" he said smiling at Cindy.
"Ok o, thanks man" I said and made a wink at him through the
rear view mirror. Cindy was so engrossed in whatever she was
doing with her phone to notice the winks going on. The driver
continued with his yarns doing the 'chyking' for me.
couldn't help but kept smiling as the driver didn't seem tired of
praising her beauty.
My mind drifted away to the note as the driver kept talking. I
had the urge to bring the note out and check if I can be able to
recognize the number, but I decided against it. There will be
enough time to do that.
Five minutes later saw us in front of Cindy's hostel. I alighted
and held the door for her to step out. She came down still
flashing that beautiful smile.
"Thanks for coming out with me" I said as we walked a bit
down her hostel.
"The pleasure is mine and thanks for the fun" she replied.
"I'm honored" I said.
She turned and gave me a big bear hug. Not like the one she
gave me when I came to pick her earlier on. This one came
with a meaning, yes it did. You know that kinda hug were a girl
presses herself so hard on you that you feel she is about to rip
your heart out? Yes that the kind of hug she gave me.
"I enjoyed myself " she whispered into my ear. That sent a
tingling sign down my spine to the man below who responded
immediately. With the way she was pressed to me, I know she
must have felt my semi attention. As she disentangled herself
from me, my hand went down straight inside my pocket to hide
the tent that was already forming down below.
I stood watching her sheepishly as she walked straight to her
hostel. I watched as she swayed her backside as if she has no
waist bone. As my sight was focused on her back, so many
thought were running through my mind. Cindy is the kind of girl
that attracts so much attention to herself. Not that she does
that intentionally but she is just too endowed.
When she got to her hostel entrance, she turned and saw me
staring at her. She smiled and blew me a kiss in the air before
walking into the hostel. That action of hers got many guys and
babes around looking towards my direction. It was then I
realized that I wasn't the only person looking at her.
"Oga your phone dey ring" the driver said bringing my mind
back. It was then that I realized that I was even with a cab.
"Ah! My oga sorry o, no vex" I apologized collecting the phone
from him. It was Cindy calling. I picked leaning on the car.
"If you don't leave my hostel now, I will call the security for
you" she said giggling from her end of the phone.
"Provided I will still see you when they arrive, no problem" I
"Mr lover boy, na so I don shark your head reach" she said
"Are you just realizing that" I threw back at her.
"Oya e don do. Start going and lemme know when you get
home" she said.
"Sure" I replied before the call ended.
I went around and hopped into the front seat of the cab. I
apologized to the driver for keeping him waiting but he replied
"not to worry" as he also enjoyed the show. As he eased the
car into motion, I brought out the note and the money. I gave
the money to the driver and folded the note back into my
pocket. He was all smiles when I gave the money and he kept
showering me with praises. When we got to gate, I alighted
and collected his number promising to call him anytime I need
a cab service.
