Temmy: Can you stand?

He held me by my right hand using his other hand to pull my back up. I got up and we left the party hall, followed the exit passage and stayed at the buildings’ security house for me to rest for a while. Surprisingly, the party continued as if nothing had happened, but Rachael and Janet did left the hall with us. My shirt was still very wet with water and because of that, we couldn’t leave the venue on time. Rachael volunteered to rush down to our hostel and get me a new shirt, but as she was about leaving, a lady and a guy coming out from the party hall offered to help us to the hostel as they came with a car. Janet decided to stay as the guys convey us down to the hostel because the vehicle can only carry four passengers and the driver.

While in the vehicle, I started feeling sharp pain on my head and almost pass out again. The lady offered to convey me down to the school health center but I declined because I hate hospital environment even though it’s obvious I really need a medical attention. We were dropped at the hostel and I decided to sleep as I am still not feeling good. After like one hour of sleep, I woke up to see the lady and the guy were back in the room and surprisingly Funmi was there too. The guy came with some drugs and provisions.

Guy: How are you feeling now?

Me: The pain has reduced, I’m just feeling some sinusoidal headache at the right side of my head. It seems to be following my pulse as it come and leave at regular interval.

Guy: (He touches my head and felt the temperature) Your temperature looks normal, I think the headache is a result of the shock from the hit. Take these drugs and follow the description. If the headache persist, please come to health center tomorrow, I’m still around till next two weeks.

Me: Thanks. Are you a doctor?

Lady: yes he is.

Guy: (Smiling) I am a doctor in training. By this time next year, you should be able to call me a doctor and nobody will question it.

Temmy: The way you speak did show you are a doctor. You are studying in this school?

Guy: No, I’m only here to visit my nurse fiancée

Lady: Nurse in training (She cuts in)

Guy: But the doctor at your health center is a friend of mine, so I’m helping him out there, while I’m around.

Lady: Nice excuse to be with your babe, as if we don’t know why you are here.

Guy: I’m not going to deny that (We all laughed)

Lady: What’s your name?

Me: William and he’s Temmy

Lady: William sound British. What’s your last name?

Me: Albert

Lady: Wao! We shared the same surname.

Guy: Maybe he’s your lost brother

Lady: Time will tell if he is. I am Aramide and He my Fiancé is Bankole.

Temmy: So you are the nurse he’s talking about

Me: Cool! I like your combination. Hospital is set. Just give birth to a lab scientist and a pharmacist and you are good to go (Everybody laughed)

Aramide: Thanks. You can call me Mide. (Facing Funmi) You’ve been silent all these while, hope all is well?

Funmi: I am fine, thanks. I just don’t want to interrupt.

Bankole: She looks like the shy type. You guys should take care of yourselves. Will, do take the drug and let me know how you feel tomorrow.

Me: Thank you man

Aramide: Will, I’ll need your number so I can call to know how you are doing. I’ve reported your case to the school security and it seems they’ve been looking for how to nab those guys before now. You might be called to witness.

Me: I really don’t want to be involved in any case, I just want to be okay.

Funmi: I will testify. I was there and saw everything. I also know the guys.

Me: No, I don’t want you involve neither. Though, you and I have a lot to talk about.

Bankole: Please be careful with the way you deal with those boys. I think they are cult members.

Funmi: They are not into cultism, they are just trying to act like one.

Bankole: Still, be careful with them. Except you are sure of what you are doing.

Aramide: Do take care. I’ll give you call Will. Temmy and . . . (Pointing to Funmi)

Funmi: Funmilola

Aramide: Please take care of him and yourselves.

They left the room while Temmy see them off to their car. Funmi brought out an orange juice and persuaded me to take the drug at that instant. I took the drug while Temmy excused himself saying he needs to see Rachael.

Me: Bro don’t do anything stupid okay? In fact, don’t do anything, stupid or not.

Temmy: I’ll try bro. I’m even angry at you.

Me: We’ll have our own discussion later. Just don’t do anything please.

Temmy: Alright. I’ll be back soon. Will I still meet you Funmi?

Funmi: Definitely. Except Will said otherwise.

Temmy: Good, I have things to say to you too.

He left the room to meet Rachael leaving only Funmi and I in the room. I’m really not at ease with Temmy going to Rachael at this time, I have a feeling he’s going to take a rash decision. He’s always like that whenever he’s angry.

Funmi, sitting at the edge of the mattress, looking so dejected, bowed her head and was not raising it. My mind was to talk sense into her head but on another note, she’s an adult and I’m not in any position to question her behavior, so why will she answer any query from me. I decided to lie down and was thinking of something else to say when she broke the silence.

Funmi: Will (her voice shaky)

Me: cool down Funmi. We can talk about whatever it is later.

Funmi: No (crying now)

“Okay I don’t like crying game and according to a Yoruba proverb, a woman that cry while explaining will eventually destroy the home.” Although her own seem sincere because she has no reason to cry before she’ll say anything to me. One thing her tear is surely causing that I don’t want is bringing out the emotions in me. Seeing her cry is making me feel somehow and I really don’t wanna see it. “OH my God, I’m I in love?”. I prefer to be friend with a lady for a period of time and allow it to grow into love but I’m already in love with Funmi despite her obvious shortcomings.

I move closer to her, hug her and pressed her head on my chest while she sobs. She wanted to start talking but I asked her not to. She remain like that for around 10min even after she had stop crying. She pulled back, look me in the eye and then touch my shirt

Funmi: I’ve soaked your shirt again

Me: only this time with tears and not water

Funmi: I’m sorry. You need to change the shirt.

Me: I will but you have to promise me one thing

Funmi: (Forced a smile) What’s that?

Me: No matter what happen, you’ll never cry like this again

Funmi: I couldn’t stop it.

Me: You’ll have to try. I must admit, it breaks my heart seeing you cry

Funmi: I’m sorry

Me: Don’t be sorry, just don’t cry

Funmi: I should be taking care of you, but here you are taking care of me.

Me: I’m okay now. I just have to rest.

Funmi: What will you eat?

Me; I think the rice I took at the party is still there. I’m okay.

Finmi: No you are not. It’s my opportunity to cook for you, please don’t say no.

Me: Alright, but whatever it is I can’t take much. You should be quick it’s getting late.

Funmi: I’m sleeping here tonight, of you guys don’t mind

Me: The room is big but I’ll have to tell Temmy

Funmi: He said I should tell you.

Me: But why did you want to sleep over?

Funmi: My hostel is not safe on a day like this

Me: What about your car?

Funmi:Already parked in your compound here.

Me: You seem prepared. Feel free.

She entered the kitchen to make amala. While I was resting my head on the mattress, my phone range and it was Uche. I cut it immediately and ignore every other call she put through after that. I was already dozen off when my phone rang again and it’s Rachael.

Rachael: Hello (Her voice sounding somehow)

Me: Rachael what’s the problem?

Rachael : (crying now) Please help me talk to Temmy. I’ll tell you everything later but please help me beg him.

Me: Temmy is not here yet, what did he do?

Rachael: Just beg him for me please (sobing till the line went dead)
