LOVE AND VIRGINITY EPISODE 7

A NEW LIFE
Chapter 7

**************************************

Through my mom’s connection, I was able to
secure a very profitable job in one of the biggest oil companies in Nigeria, in just 3 weeks after my youth service. The company
made arrangements for me to travel to the US for a 10 months managerial course. I only wished I could tell the


good news to Tope, but there was no means. She didn’t have a phone, she wasn’t on social media and not even an email account.
Few days later I traveled to Texas, U.S. It was a wonderful learning experience and I was well
taken care of. I met people from different parts of the world and I had a great time. At the end of the exercise, I returned back to Nigeria and
the following day I was assigned to the position
of an assistant manager. I had my own office and desk, it was too good to be true. My salary was wow!! My life was beautiful.

After 3 months of working I was able to acquire a brand new car. I could afford any
luxury that I wanted. My fashion changed, I got lots of cool natives and suits, expensive wrist watches, perfumes… I didn’t know how to spend my money, every month it kept on
growing in numbers and since I wasn’t really an out going type with only few friends I had a huge savings.

A former course mate at the University was having a wedding. I was invited and I felt it was a very good opportunity for me to meet
up with good old friends. I came late for the church
wedding so I took a back seat and shortly after the church ceremony ended and we all dispersed to the reception not too far away.
At the reception I took a secluded seat. I never really liked to mingle and I decided to just observe from a distance. I saw lots of old
faces that made me smile. It was really good seeing their happy faces again. But a face I would never forget was Ella’s. I had a major
crush on Ella for 2 sessions and a semester, until she and Osas started dating shortly before we all graduated. Ella never
reciprocated the feelings and it was difficult to open up to her.
She’s a beautiful fair skinned lady and very decent. She was into
crafts: She made beads, shoes, bags and cloths. She carved out a name for herself on campus.

I was so pleased to see everyone smiling and
having a good time. I was busy with my phone and next thing, I looked up and I saw Ella’s coming my way. My heart beat began to
accelerate faster as she approached me. She had a smile on and I knew I was in trouble. She pulled out a
seat on my table and sat down, she then said. “Look who we have here… Mr Loner. You haven’t really changed have you?” I said. “Hi Ella, so good to see you.”
She then said. “oh Adeoluwa The guy I liked so much but never had the balls to walk
up to me.” I said. “Wait…You don’t mean it.” She said. “You never knew I liked you? Why did you think I was always in your class hanging
with Chioma?” I then said. “Oh my God… But you ended up dating Osas now?” She then said. “You are pathetic Adeoluwa . If you knew how long I came around your class hoping you would act. You know, I knew you have always been serious minded, focused and very
dedicated. You were not just man enough.”

I then said to her. “Are you still with Osas?” She said. “Osas and I broke up during service year, he wasn’t serious at all.” I then said. “Is it too late, Ella?” She laughed and shook her head. Adeoluwa you are still pathetic. You haven’t changed but it’s still cute though.” I then asked her. “How about your craft
business?” She said. “It’s doing well, I use my house for now but I really need a place because sometimes I
get large orders and no space to work. I am thinking of getting a job so I can save up to get a place for my business.” I then said. “Okay…. Ella, I know I messed up in the past. I am sorry about that, I was very
shy and immature. I have really changed, trust me on this. I have always admired you, always patronize your crafts even though I never needed them. If there’s nobody you are seeing, please consider me. I am begging you.”

She then said. “Aww… How sweet. you know what?
Let me have your number. Meanwhile, lets go meet up with our friends over there.”
I then gave her my business card and she was like. “Wow!! Adeoluwa, you here. I have always known you were special.” After the reception, I dropped her home and when I got home I called her and we spent
over an hour talking on the phone. We kept on talking for long over the week and the prospect of Ella and I starting a relationship
grew by the day. We decided to fix a date the following weekend and we chose Saturday. So on that day we
went to a nice restaurant to have lunch. We cracked school jokes and talked about old times… It was a wonderful moment. I then
asked her. “Ella about your business. How much will it cost you to relocate and
restructure your business?” She said. “Well, it will cost me N350,000.” I then reached out to my small bag and brought out my cheque book. Then she said. Adeoluwa. What do you think yo are doing?” I told her. “I am writing you a cheque of N350,000? She then said. “I can’t take it, I am sorry, I just can’t take it.” I said. “Its a loan, you can pay me when you ready to.” She said. “How much interest?” I then said. “N1 ”
she lauded, hugged me and that was it. I really wanted to do something very important in her life, so she would know that I was very concerned about her future.

When I got home my mom called. She wanted to know
my next move.Obviously marriage, I told her about Ella and she wanted to see her the following weekend. I
then told Ella if she would like to pay my home a
visit and meet my family. She delightfully welcomed it. She came over and my mom really liked her. They
talked for over an hour and I even felt left out. It was a good thing. She had lunch with us and she also helped in washing the dishes, my mom was so proud of her, even though it was their first meeting. After I had dropped Ella off at her place I got
back home and my mom called me.

creative, she’s got her own business, she’s going to have time to run and maintain her home, have
time for the kids. I mean what else do you need?” I said. “I know Ella is wonderful.” She then said. “When are you proposing to
her? you better do it soon before someone else does.” I then said. “Well, we will be traveling to Calabar in 3 weeks, for her friends wedding. I think that’s when I will do it.”
