THE CAMP. Episode 9.
Yetunde won’t allow me to get angry in peace without interfering the frequency. Anyways everyone need that special friend that’ll have your mumu button to make you smile even when you are angry.
Britney stared at me as I laughed.
“Oh, see who is laughing, I think Yetunde discovered alot about you while I was away ” she said and faced Yetunde.
“Yetunde, will you teach me how to make him smile just the way you did now? I don’t like the way he got angry today, it was my fault”
“Don’t worry, I will teach you” she replied jokingly.
It was time for drama rehearsal, I was called on the phone to come over to the location where the rehearsal would take place, I stood up and told the ladies I would be going for drama.
Yetunde walked me down the pavilion and held my hand.
“Ade, hope you will be fine?” She asked and I nodded in affirmation.
“I have to go back to the training ground, I’m sure they’ll be looking for me, Britney, hope you will take care of him since you are in same drama group” she asked.
“Yes I will, thank you Yetunde ” she said.
Yetunde left for her training and we headed to our drama location. On the way, she clocked her fingers into mine as we walked to the location.
“Ade, hope you are no more angry, please forgive me, I didn’t mean to hurt you ” she apologised as she rubbed my back. I wrapped my hand around her neck and we walked together.
The rehearsal was a success and it was night fall already, I wanted to go for my food in the kitchen, she suggested we get some snacks at mammy market and chill somewhere to talk. I was tired but her expression didn’t give me a choice so I followed her.
We got to mammy Market and got some snacks, we went to her dry cleaner’s corner, he had a small bench there. We sat there with our snacks and started talking.
“I was transported to the hospital when the crisis started, i couldn’t lift my legs, i knew you would be worried but we forgot to exchange numbers, no one would have known if not Ben that called my mum, they wanted to come but i was getting better then so the doctor told then it wasn’t that serious.”
Then I wondered how Ben got her parent’s number. I was about asking when Yetunde’s message came in.
“Hi Ade, I just saw you with Britney now, I don’t want to disrupt your conversation, we’ll see tomorrow ” I looked around but couldn’t find her.
“How did Ben have your mum’s number? ” I asked.
“Britney, I just want to know how he got your mum’s number and that’s it” I asked.
“Ben was my boyfriend back in school but we broke up due to a reason, my parents knows him and he comes to our house them, he cheated on me and I broke up with him, he has been stalking me since then, I later got to know that he came to Nigeria to serve because of me, I was also shocked when I saw him here but what choice do I have” she explained.
At that point, I knew my stand and what I might get into if I get myself involved in her so I concluded within me that it won’t more than a friend.
It was getting late, I suggested we go to bed. I walked her to her hostel, she dragged me to a corner where there was no light and wanted to kiss me, I flipped back my head to avoid.
I was surprised.
“Why did you want to do that??”
“I don’t know, I’m sorry” she said and ran inside.
I didn’t feel good about the kiss
Something wasn’t right.
I brought out my phone and called Yetunde, I told her about it and she asked me to wait for her beside the water tank which I did.
She met me there few minutes later and we talked about it, she told me not to take it to heart and shouldn’t attach emotions to it.
When she was about leaving she hugged me and kissed me.
If Britney can’t have you, I will”
