At the moment, I stopped sobbing.
I suddenly started to feel strong.
“God! Abeg no allow pregnancy to happen, my mom would be so disappointed,” I muttered.
I stood up from the foam and reached for my laptop.
Now, what you all don’t know about me is that I have a diary about my experiences since I became an adult.
I felt like writing down the happening of that day in my diary.
I opened my laptop and started writing.
As I was on it, my phone buzzed.
“Oh God! Who is that again?” I shrugged as I reached for my phone.
It was Kelenna, my brother.
At that point, I remembered that I haven’t checked up Jeffery’s Whatsapp messages.
I had to pick up the call because I didn’t have enough airtime to start calling back an international number.
KELENNA: Hello Ada.
ME: Bros welldone o. But na only popsy dey call me that name o.
KELENNA: So, me never reach to be called your popsy?
ME: Haba! Bros, you sef know say you small naa. Na just three years gap o.

ME: That’s lovely. Abeg, make we talk better talk. How are you and studies?
KELENNA: God has been faithful. Has Jeffery called you?
ME: Yes, this morning but he didn’t say much. He rather referred me to Whatsapp, where he said he dropped some messages for me; but I’m yet to check it up.
KELENNA: Okay, maybe he tried explaining to you that he won’t be coming back to Nigerian again on Whatsapp.
ME: Bro, why naa? Our goodies don enter one chance so?
KELENNA: No Sophie, something came up urgently for him, but he has sent everything down to Nigeria through DHL.
ME: Haa! Better o. My heart don already fly o.
KELENNA: No darling! Just be at alert with your phone lines on.
ME: I will bro.
KELENNA: Alright. Say hi to Mom and Dad for me.
ME: I will.
And he hung up****
I smiled and went back to what I was writing.
After about extra 30 minutes of pouring out my heart in writing….
My eyes started to grow weary.
And sleep took a better part of me at the moment.
After an hour, I woke up abruptly because of the buzz from my phone.
It was my corper girlfriend, Blessing.
“Oh God! Mtcheeeew….” I hissed as I reluctantly picked up the call.
ME: Hello (in a sleepy tone).
BLESSING: Babe! You didn’t come for CDS…are you okay?
ME: Yes, I am. You just woke me up from sleep.
BLESSING: Where are you?
ME: I’m in my room.
BLESSING: Okay, I’m coming to disturb you a little.
And she hung up***
I wanted to stand up from my foam but another round of sleep drove me off.
