Some minutes later, the gate man opened the gate and led me into the house. The house was beautiful, the sitting room was tastefully furnished.
I stood in the sitting room waiting for him to come out, he joined me later, we exchanged cold greetings.
“How did you know this place?”
“Walls have ears you know! do you expect me to just fold my hands and do nothing about us”
“Why are you here?”
“Tunde, I’m here for just one reason, where did I go wrong?”
“Pamilerin, you did not do anything wrong, I know I promise to come see you but have been very busy”
“I think by now you should have a better excuse than ‘busy’ or what do you think?”
“I wish you could understand”
“Understand what? that you left because of all this”
“This has nothing to do with my present status”
“Just give me some time to clear my head, because right now I don’t even know what I want”
“I get it, after five years… you want something new right? you are bored with us”
“Don’t put it like that, please give me time..”
He was still talking when I saw a lady walked down the stairs. She was wearing a crop top on a bum short. She’s fair and her skin was glowing like that of a super model.
I’m not bad myself, that is obvious but this lady is one of those who spend every penny they have on looking good.
“Baby can you please give us some minutes, I’ll meet you upstairs” he said to the lady.
Baby! I exclaimed
“I’m sorry I can’t, who is she anyway?” she asked Tunde.
“She’s a friend”
“A friend! so she’s the baby and I’m the friend right! now I get it” I said
“I don’t care who she is, but I need her to leave this place this minute before I call security to throw her out” she yelled
“Tunde I’m not leaving this place until you answered my question or don’t you think you owe me an explanation. You got a new job, you even relocated without telling me, God knows I did not deserve this from you”
“Stop right there gold digger, so that’s why you are here, to reap where you did not sow!” the lady launched at me.
“That should be my line, Don’t you know you are the gold digger here, reaping where you did not sow?
Before I finished the statement, her hands had already landed on my cheek, I stepped forward and returned the slap. Tunde hurriedly stood in between us.
“You watched her slap me and you do nothing about it? She lashed at Tunde
“Antonia! but you slapped her first”
“Really! I know what to do” She went out, called the Security and they ushered me out of the house.
Tunde said nothing, he watched as I was been led out of his house.
I took a cab that carried me straight to my house, thank God I had enough money on me, I cried silently in the cab.
I got a message from him on way home, he apologized for what happened in his house and promised to check on me.
I got home and cried bitterly. This is the guy that I love with the whole of my life, a guy I made so many sacrifices for. I spent five years of my life nurturing this relationship.
He was the only guy I dated all my life. I remembered the abortion and wept the more. I still live with the guilt till now. Even after the abortion I still went ahead to satisfy his sexual pleasures all because I want to please and keep him. I’ve done things I wished I could take back. All because of him.
Now I admit that sex won’t make men stay, they leave when they feel like and they stay if they want to, sex or no sex.
That night I wiped away my tears, took my bath and encouraged myself to forget about him and move on. I told God that night to strengthen me and help me move on because 5years relationship is not a joke.
I ended the relationship within me, having it at the back of my mind that I’m no longer in a relationship, meaning I’m officially single. Its obvious he doesn’t want the relationship either, so I’ll just sit back and wait for the day he’ll come to give his break up speech.
