Before I left for lectures on Monday I called Precious and told her that we will see after my lectures. My lectures ended by 5pm so I left for my house. I met Precious cooking when I got home. There was a little coldness between us which was understandable, owing to the fact that we had some unfinished business. After we ate and relaxed a bit. I decided to bring up the issue of the previous day.
“Precious, I’m going to be truthful and sincere with you and I want you to be same with me. I’m sorry about the incident of yesterday. There is nothing between Oge and I, whatever we had stopped a long time ago. You saw her here because we went for a party and came back late so she decided to stay over. Nothing went down”.
“But she was on your briefs”
“Did you expect her to sleep over Unclad or in her party wears?”
“If there is nothing going down between you guys, she would have left since morning. But no, you allowed her stay back till that time. Which means it is either something went down or you were planning on something going down. I’m not a kid Purity, I know all those stuffs but that is in the past now it shouldn’t happen again”.
“Now you have made your conclusion without even trying to give me the benefit of doubt. That’s ok. I want to ask you something and please be truthful to me”.
“Ok, go on”
“What happened between you and Oge back then?”
“What happened like?”
“I don’t know but you were here yesterday and heard everything she said. So I’m asking you, what happened? I don’t want to ask her yet. If something happened between you guys, I want to hear it from you first”.
“Purity whatever happened between Oge and I happened in the past. Believe me, it’s nothing that should get you worried. It is just some girl issues and we settled it then ok? I guess she reacted that way because she felt I threatened her”
“It doesn’t seem that way to me. I feel there is more to it than you are telling me. So, I implore you to tell me the truth. Did you threaten Oge to leave me back then?”
“You are funny Purity. Threaten her for what? Why would I stoop so low to do that, what do I stand to gain?”
“How do I know?”
“You know what? It is just funny how you could believe the words of your ex over that of your girlfriend”
“Hey don’t play that card with me, don’t do that victim thing with me now. I know something went down between the two of you. But since you aren’t gonna tell me, I’m going to ask Oge”.
“So you are going back to her? You can as well tell me that it is over between us since you are going back to your ex. I don’t know why I keep being the one always receiving the short end of you. Now you want to go back to your ex who left you since first year all because she said something that doesn’t mean anything. I don’t know how long I’m going to take other girls meddling into our affairs and you see it as nothing?” She said, tears rolling down her eyes.
Women, must everything end in tears? Can’t issues be settled without tears and someone feeling she has been victimized.
“Ok, fine it’s ok” I said letting go of the topic.
Women just have a way of making things go in their favor.
