The Married Single [A Story] – Part 17

We all left, it was gist and yabbing all the way
as we were going to the exam hall. How I
escaped was that Tunde’s father was the one
that called the CSO and pleaded on my behalf.

His dad was the one that helped the CSO
secured the security job in our school due to
Tunde’s recommendation of him when he was
out of military service, it was like a good turns
deserve another.

We entered the exam hall around 3pm and all
eyes was on us..u can imagine 6-7 guys coming
into the exam hall an hour late, our lecturers
were just looking at us with pity..we formed
voltron and wrote the exam, I came outside and
met shade and bola together, her face had
swollen up from tears likewise Bola too…..Bola
hugged me and couldn’t hold back her
emotions…..we stayed till around 5pm before
we called the CSO who said we should come
and meet him at the staff club, we got there
and met the lecturer with the CSO drinking

They called me between their midst and we
started gisting and talking, we pleaded that he
should just forget about everytyn and at the
end of it, we declare for them with drinks,
pepper soup and assorted meat. We left school
around after seven, Bola couldn’t go home and
he had to stay with Shade while I decided to go
to my friends place.

Fast forward to a year later, my relationship
have grown more than five years and we still
remain strong, doesn’t mean that we don’t
have argument or quarrel but no third party
had ever meddle into our affairs before, we
always find a way to settle things our own way
and as for s*x, that was still a regular thing and
my loyalty to shade was never questioned,
cheating on her was never an option even
though I had so many advances and all sort.
Things started changing by the time we got to
400level, first it was on her birthday, during the
party later in the evening, she was called
outside to come and dance and we were both
dancing, I decided to kiss her but she used her
hand to block my lips..i was embarrassed and
left the scene. Kay walked up to me and said he
saw all what happened but I shouldn’t let that
spoil the fun of the day. Then later in the night,
shade begged me and started crying that she
was sorry for what happened, she promised it
will never happened again. We settled the issue
and the day ended with hot s*x with a lot of
promises and swearing with the bible unclad
that we will never cheat on each other neither
will another being see our unclothedness
talkless of having s*x with another person (we
were both drunk in love)…

By the time we got to 400level second
semester, my house rent had already expired
and my cousin said he wanted to move to one
of his coursemate hostel, I found it unnecessary
to pay for another house rent as we had less
than six month to spend in school, I moved
some handy things to Shade’s place while I
gave all other things to my cousin and some
other peeps. I shuttle between our hostel and
My friends place as exam was fast approaching
and my friends pleaded that I should come and
stay with them fully for the time being as that
was the last lap and we cant risk any carry over
but I need to take care of my babe too………….

There was a mini strike before the exam and
during this time shade do tell me she want to
go and spend sometimes in her cousin’s place
as his mom have been disturbing her on phone
over a while now to be coming to her place…
The deal here was now she will leave on Friday
and come back on Monday, I make sure she
goes with nothing less than 5k for transport
and feeding anytime she’s going.

It was becoming worrisome when I noticed that
the moment shade leave on Friday her phone
will be off or not reachable until Monday when
she will be coming back. I questioned her so
many times but she always give excuse that
network was not good in Yomi’s area and I had
no cause to worry as I do call Yomi and he will
confirm to me that my shade was in their place
even though he will tell me he was not at home
anytime I called.

This continue till we started our final exam
when shade said she will prefer coming from
home to write her exams since I will be staying
with my friends for our final exam. I never felt
the distance between us like that since we
started dating, there was always break in
communication over the weekend and when we
see during the week, it was in the school and
not at home, so there was nothing like s*x
between us for more than 2months, I endured
so far I was able to stay without s*x for more
than a year before, then what’s two

I thought things will change after our exam but
shade decided not to resume back to the
hostel, we just locked our room as I stayed in
my friends place. There comes a day when one
of our neighbour we were close to was doing
house warming and shade decided to come
from house, we met at the venue of the party
and I noticed something which made me
accuse her, firstly she didn’t hug me when she
arrived and she didn’t even behave as if we
have seen each other for long…..

Me:whats wrong with you shade
Shade: As in?
Me:a lot of things….i need we need to sit down
and talk about so many things
Shade:Things like what?
Me:Firstly, the way you are walking right now
Shade: Whats it with it…………..
Me:It says a lot cos this is the exact way you
use to walk anytime we have s*x and I can bet
it that you have had s*x today (my instinct
doesn’t lie as have known my shade for over
5years, we have been living together for over
four years under the same roof and when I said
she was walking the way she use to walk
whenever we finish having s*x I definitely know
what am saying)
Shade: What kind of allegation is that? s*x with
who? You or an angel
Me: I know what am saying and am sure of
what am saying…………
Shade:you are sure of what you are saying? Are
you trying to accuse me? We have been
together for over five years, have never cheated
on you and you are accusing me now…what
sort of thing is that? Where did u put our trust?
Me:ohk…am sorry baby, can we talk about this
after the party? Atleast we will be going home
Shade: No oooo…am going back home from
Me:that means we wont have time to see again?
Shade:We will see during the week?
Me:baby, pls we need to see and talk….
Shade:Don’t worry, we will see and talk

She walked away from where we were and left
me standing, I was amazed as if it was not the
same shade have known for the past five
