There. I said it. I am attracted to Ronke.
"Hows the job? Hope they arent killing you..."
"Man.. its fine o, just need to make sure Jackie gets those drafts to me before the week runs out if not Im screwed with my time line for modeling." He started on the burger.
"Toba confessed to me about everything." He stopped chewing.
"Cult, Father, Suni, Everything."
"From what he said,yes." I actually laughed ..."Wanna know his reason for telling me?" I didnt even wait for him to answer because I was gonna tell him anyways."his reason for telling me...get this" I sat forward because I couldn't wait to give him the outrageousness "He says....Suni's baby is cursed and the cult is going to come after him and her and kill ALL of them." I rolled my eyes for emphasis. "Can anybody be THIS shallow and WEAK to convince the mother of their child the reason to abort is because of CULT members???" I laughed again because now the story was still very funny in my ear.
Ah Ahn "Oh Puh-leaseee!! Dont tell me you believe him Shafa?"
"Not that I do, but the boy IS known to be an Olode. Like this is a known fact." He adjusted in hsi seat. "My worry now is, this is all secret info he has downloaded on you, are you safe??" He looked worried. "Shit, am I safe??"
"Sorry, but really though........." he looked at me I looked at him, both of us lost in thoughts of how serious this info session via confession could be. "Have you told Suni?"
"I'm going there today... I'm apparently meant to try to convince her with his cock and bull story."
Shafa's phone vibrated on the table. I glanced at it...unconsciously. He snatched it off the table, but not quick enough for me to have seen who was calling. It was Ronke.What's she calling him for? I bet she's following up on that coffee...that girl is just not serious.It vibrated again.
"Are you going to ignore your ultimate crush?" I teased. He really looked like he wasn't sure if he should pick or not. "Answer the girl oh, before she bursts in here!"
He half smiled and just let it ring. "Abeg leave these things... we have more serious issues on our hands." He picked up his burger again to get chowing. His office phone rang.
"AH - AH!" I clapped my hands together as if I were dusting them. "She even has your office number?" Odd... but then again its Ronke, she has everybody's business at her fingertips.
"What makes you think its her sef?" He picked "Shafa Johnson..." he paused listening. "Are you kidding me?" pause again. "Damn... ok thanks." he dropped the phone then hung his head with a huge sigh.
"Its her abi? Shit I'm too goodd!"
I just laughed and waited for this dear cousin of mine to enter let me scold her for disturbing my man! I snagged an extra fry that Shafa hadn't eaten and just waited.
