I heard a beep coming in. Yale was calling back. "See, I have to go. I wont burn your cable cause that would automatically burn mine. So you can calm down. We'll talk later I hope. Stay sexy" I had reached the door as I clicked off. I opened it. "Spoil my doorbell o"
When he left I didn't fall asleep immediately as I thought I would. My mind drifted off though, so I was...kind of sleeping I guess. I remembered the moment when I walked out of the bathroom and noticed Arinze looking at me. I mean Suni this isn't neuroscience. You want the guy, the guy wants you. It is a very black and white situation here. Its not like I'm still attached to Toba or anything. I remembered Toba. I wondered how he was. As much as I tried to hate him, I still felt a pang of worry. I had called him before I left for vegas. Kept the conversation brief, but his attitude was even abrupt. He promised to call me back when I got back in town. He made it clear I should not call him. I had given him major attitude and was like "Why the hell would I be calling YOU?" but I guess he already knew I really would get worried and want to call. Like now....
My mind drifted to baby as I felt another slight cramp. My hand was already on my belly.My doctors appointment was as soon as we got back. And the need to shop. I was naturally small but yes I was getting the "bump" now. It was a bit more pronounced. I thought about the designs I had been working on in my spare time. I had to pass them off to the tailor soon, before I had no clothes to wear, but in the mean time. Shopping Alert! Which reminded me of Yale... I missed her. I was used to talking to her everyday. I picked up my phone and called.
"God Mother how far?"
"Suni?" Rustling of sheets or whatever. Yes I woke her up. Why should I suffer being awake early alone?
"Heyyy.. are you ok?" He voice changed. Typical Yale, always worrying.
"Yea I'm fine. just lying in bed, craving a man I'm not sure I should have, thinking of my baby daddy's whereabouts, and wanting to shop cause I'm becoming a fat so. Story of my life."
She laughed... "Aww.. pele. How's baby?"
"Fine.. I'm having slight cramps, but I read that's normal."
"Hmm... better let dokita know o..."
"Abeg jo... Its not that serious. How are you?"
"Ahhh I sense gist. You never fail me...ok spill what happened?"
She laughed again but I could now hear the weirdness..."Shafa and I had a... small argument.."
"Arguments are healthy.."
"I know.. but this one..like ok... Toba called him and they were having whisper talks and I kind of eavesdropped on their convo and I was like all... what's that about-"
"What's what about?"
"Like he said something about helping him settle stuff if he had known before and I was like.. ah ah... caules I wont like Suni I'm a bit uncomfortable...Like what if Shafa is like part of this cult stuff..."
"No for real....hes just so dodgy then he got all defensive when I confronted him turning it on me talking smack about eavesdropping, why wont I? Am I stranger that he now has to to take called privately. Like seriously this is my supposed fiance. Any ways... I got mad and left... but you're not here to run to so I'm at Ronkes..."
"Ronke??" I couldn't hide my disbelief. That girl rubbed me the wrong way. I only tolerated her because of Yale... she was just so...wrong.
"Yea... anyway's.... I'm just sad. Abeg hurry and come back so we can do therapy shopping."
I laughed, but I was kind of.. I guess its nothing. "For sure.. We'll be on our way back tomorrow night."
I felt a leg cramp..."Yale let me go, I need to walk around, legs cramping from too much sleeping. Abeg before I paralyze finish"
"Ok.. kiss my baby and run your hands over Arinze's chest for me.."
"Ewo! See this adulterer!" We both laughed..."Yale ...we'll talk when I get back but don't sweat it and don't be stubborn k...Shafa's a good guy...."
"We'll see...kk bye. Love ya"
I sat up and wiggled my toes... my leg cramp started to ease.
So that's why she ran to my house? See me thinking she had found my text messages or something. Me sef I can worry sometimes. I walked into the room
