The Married Single [A Story] – Part 5


That was how I started my relationship with Shade. Everything was going on smoothly and
as times goes by, we tend to know more about
her. Shade was actually a reserved lady unlike
her outward flamboyant look, she doesn’t have
a strong mind like that (so, I guess), she’s an
orphan, she lost her mum while she was giving
birth to her while her dad died 5years back, she
was the last of 5 children and her elder brother
who already had grown up children take care of
her. She stays with her sister in their father’s
house and her sister served as her mother. She
doesn’t lack much as all her siblings
contributed to her well being and she had four
source of revenue.
Since I started my relationship with Shade,
there was a bit of distance between me and
Bola even though you hardly see me and Shade
together in school..our discussion was always
on phone and sometimes in the hostel and the
highest thing we have ever done together was
just kiss like twice (maybe on her way going
home), hold her hand and hug. Have never feel
her bosom before talkless of seeing her
unclothedness, we never talk about s*x either
as I cherished her so much and I believe all
those things will come at the right moment.
There was a big crisis that happened in my
school during that second semester and the
school was closed down almost a year. During
this time, we visited each other at home and
she does too and within this period, have been
able to meet all her sisters and not the guys cos
she was scared of their response of her being in
a relationship. I also introduced her to all the
members of my family, it was love at first sight
for my mum as she truly love her like a
daughter and warned me that she should be
the only person she want to know (before nko?
Who will have all these and be looking for
another thing again).
During the strike, my uncle got a shop in
computer village as work was not really coming
through, he started a business and I use to go
to his shop to help him out with sales. Didn’t
take long before our technological system was
introduced to musical/software downloading. He
bought a laptop and I was in charge of it.
Musicals 150naira, videos 200naira, softwares
minimum of 1,000naira…….He said he wanted
me to have enough savings before going back
to school, have business mind and be
independent of my parent as am already
becoming a man.

I was making a lot of money during this time
with nothing really much to spend it on.atleast I
make nothing less than 10k in a day on my
own….money was coming in, I lack nothing
likewise my lovely wife too “shade”. Due to the
money that was coming in for me, I make up
my mind that even when school resume, I will
still be coming even if it was on Saturday alone
or on some Friday that are lecture free day.
Making 20k within two days means a lot and its
enough to be a big boy in school.
School resumed after ten month and I couldn’t
believe my relationship with shade was almost a
year without any form of intimacy not to talk of
spending a night together…I trusted her with
my life and I never cheated on her with any
lady. There was a bit of space between me and
Bola already due to the strike as all my
attention was on shade and our relationship
was like a perfect one made from heaven.
I was in school on a Friday afternoon as usual
when I stepped out of my faculty and decided
to make my way to our canteen, I got there and
was eating when I saw a lady seated on a guys
lap, I looked very well and it was shade? Why
will she be doing dat when there were so many
space there, though all those people there
areher course mate. I picked my phone and
called her
Me:whats up shade?
Shade: Am fine….
Me:where are u?
Shade:Am in my department………..
Me:*****shuuu****** Department? Hope you are
good, I just say lemme find out where you are
Shade:Thanks dear..hope u are ohk too
Me:am fine…..we will talk later.
I finished eating and step out of the place
without her noticing I was there. I take life
simple as anything else, even though its normal
to jealous, I always give whoever am dating a
benefit of doubt and I don’t listen to gossips
neither talk about. When I trust, I trust
someone totally from my heart.
Later in the day after close of school when I got
to the hostel, I called shade again
Me:whats up babe, where are u?
Shade:am just leaving school
Me:ohk…so, are we seeing before going home
Shade:am not really sure cos I want to go with
Emmanuel to his house and spend weekend
Me:Emmanuels house?
Shade:Yes, he said his mother has been longing
to see me all this while and I just want to go
and spend this weekend there
Me:what if I didn’t call u
Shade:have been planning to call you too and I
thought maybe I will see you in school before ni
Me:oga ooooo
Shade:Baby, pls can I go……pls and pls
Me:what do u want me to say?
Shade: Pls my love can go.
Shade:Thank you dear, I love you so much
Me:I love you too……..
“she cut the call and I started thinking “am I
ohkay? Was shade trying me? Emmanuel was
the same guy I saw in the afternoon carrying
her on his lap? Why was it Emmanuel? She has
never spend a night with me before nor in my
own parent house ever since we have been
dating but she told me she was going to
emmanuel’s house to spend a weekend and I
approved for her to go…………is it cos of love or
am scared to hurt her? I don’t think am even
ohk sef I concluded”
