Read Story: Tochi… Episode 9

We got to an eatery besides a classroom block that belonged to the department of mass communication. I sat down, kossi pulled up a seat and sat besides me. I ordered for meat pie and soya milk for the both of us. Kossi looked at me with a wide grin on his face.
“i swear you be correct guy” he said as he opened the cover of the soy drink. I frowned as i Picked my meat pie removing it from its package.
“Guy u go vomit all these things if i no see this girl” i said biting into the pie and sipping the drink with a straw.
“Bro chillax, you go soon confirm” he said
“okay o” i said looking around the environment and admiring the girls around. We soon got through with our snacks and sat there eagerly looking around. Kossi was busy greeting his course mates who came around, girls mostly.
I looked at my watch and the time was 4:36 pm. I had forgotten totally about the lecture i was supposed to be attending. I looked impatiently at kossi who was busy fondling with his phone.
“Guy, what’s up nah? Make e no be say i miss my lecture and come miss this girl too o” i said.
“Chill nah guy. She go soon show up” he said still focused on his phone. I grabbed the phone from him, he looked up to protest but rather broke into a big smile looking in the direction of the classroom block. I followed the direction of his eyes and there stood my dream queen. She was gorgeous as ever, she was on a red fitted gown and black sneakers, her hair was braided. She hid her eyes behind sunshades. My heart was on the verge of running out of my chest. I was sweating or maybe i thought i was. For what seemed to me like a lifetime, i sat there staring at her as she stood near the classroom. I was jolted back to reality when kossi snatched back his phone. I stood up and was about to rush at her but was pulled back by kossi.
“Guy chillax” he said motioning me to sit down.
“For what nah? ” I asked spreading my hands.
“cool down and watch” he said. I sat down reluctantly still staring at him with a deep frown.
He looked at me with a grin.
“Just watch” he said looking back in her direction.
I looked back to her position. A black Toyota camry pulled up a little distance from where she stood. She walked to the car and got in and the car drove away.
“See, you for go disgrace your self now” kossi said as he picked his books and stood up. I was really disappointed as many thoughts flew through my mind. Kossi pulled me up and we left the canteen. I was really downcast as we walked back to our lodge. Kossi wasn’t helping matters as he was busy suggesting how i could get a car better than the camry to impress her.
“But kossi come” i said as we got to the junction that led to our logde.
“so you made me miss my lecture, made me buy you free lunch just so you can show Me my crush’s boyfriend and his car?” i asked as i bent down and removed my right sneaker. Kossi laughed and broke into a run. I threw the sneaker after him as he ran into our lodge, it landed on Ada who was just coming out of the gate.
