I expected that I should be happy that Timi and Annie were no more an item, but I wasn’t. It felt good knowing that he won’t be straffing her again, but it left too many uncertainties. Before now I consoled myself that the only reason why Timi didn’t come back to me was because of Annie. She seemed a formidable replacement.

As I watched him drive, I felt bad. Was he heartbroken? Abayomi was gisting about the changes Gbenga Daniel had brought to the state when he came in 2003, but now, all he did was loot the state dry. Toun, who was an avid PDP fan, disagreed. I had little interest in politics, I know Timi liked Gbenga Daniel, but he was quiet.

Abayomi: So Timi, would you come pick us for the party tonight?

Timi: I won’t be going

Toun: why na, because of your heartbreak?

Timi laughed..

I decided that I might put rat poison in Toun’s indomie

Me: you should come na, Annie might be there.

You guys can even make-up.

Abayomi: plenty other girls will be can have your pick

Toun: you think everybody is as cheap as Kofo?

Abayomi stared at the passing cars..

Me: but if you really don’t wanna come, it’s alright.

For the remaining time spent in Timi’s car, we spoke about the unknown Umar Yaradua, who was PDP’s presidential flag bearer. The only thing we knew about him was that he was the katsina state governor that voluntarily declared his assets.

Though Abayomi and Toun wanted me to follow them home for Sunday rice, I declined. I had clothes to wash, books to read and privately sort out my emotional life.

I also wanted to know who had given the orders for our Kidnap. Though Toun believed National had something to do with it, I had a feeling it was bigger than National. Something told me what Abayomi and I were campaigning for was more than the SUG position.

Aisha was one of those popular girls in school, the kind of girl that spent so much on clothes that you wondered if her house was a boutique.

She was also known for clubbing hard. I was surprised that she had chosen her house as the venue for the party. Toun was sitting on my bed, drinking nutri-c while helping me decide what to wear.

Toun: National is gaining grounds over us

Me: how do you know?

Toun: Timi was telling me that mini-campus might be ours, but we would share the main-campus with National. The college of medicine and Engineering might just be our waterloo.

Me: and what is he doing about it?

Toun: all he can, you know he is a student also, and immediately after the elections, comes exam.

Me: true..

I settled for an armless top and a black jean.

Before we went for the party, we decided to quickly visit Chibuzor, he had arrived from the hospital the day before. His girlfriend wasn’t around when we got to his room.

Me: Chiboy, I see you are better now

Chibuzor: stop jor, I know you people came to mock me

Toun: No jor, we were scared that day o…have you ever considered dropping out and starting a Ministry?

Me: you are mad Toun. Don’t mind her jor, every once in a while poo like that happens..

Chibuzor: how did I behave , tell me what I said.

Toun: ask your girlfriend na..

Chibuzor: we are having issues,she said I embarrassed her.

Toun: finally , you fucck up sha..

Me: Toun and I just decided to come say hello..we will be on our way now..

Toun: no!..Chibuzor I am hungry o…you get beans?

I practically dragged her out of the room.

Chibuzor was laughing but you could clearly see that he was embarrassed.

Abayomi arrived shortly, he came with Chukwudi, one guy like that in maths science.

They came with some drinks that we started sipping to prepare ourselves for the party ahead. Sometime later I got a text..

Timi = changed my mind, see you at the party.

I felt awesome!

Me= you really don’t have to come.

I hoped he wouldn’t take my text serious, I was already regretting it when I got another text.

Timi = I don’t have to, I want to…
