“It is me, Jummy.”
“Oh! You are welcome my dear.”
Mrs Akinola instructed one of her girls to give
Jummy a bottle of chilled drink.
“So you are my son’s girlfriend?” she asked.
“Yes ma.” Jummy replied smiling.
“But don’t you think you are too young for that?” she
“Yes we are young but we are not going too deep
with the relationship.” Jummy explained.
“Is it a must for you to have a boyfriend now?”
“It’s not a must but so that we don’t have problems
with relating in future and to know ourselves
better.” Jummy explained.
“I see.” she replied.

Mrs Akinola noticed the cold atmosphere between
them and the jealousy in Jummy’s face. She smiled.
“Do you know her?” Mrs Akinola asked Nike.
“Yes ma.” Nike replied.
“Who is she to you?”
“She is my friend.” Nike replied.
Jummy raised her head up and looked at Nike with
an angry face.
“Who is she to Segun?” the woman asked.
She never saw that coming.
“I don’t know but recently i discovered they are
much more close.” Nike explained.
“So there is a possibility that they are dating?”
Jummy’s phone rang and she picked it. She dropped
the call twenty seconds later.
“I have to go ma. My dad wants to see me.”
“Okay.” mrs Akinola replied handing a five hundred
naira note to her as transport fare.
Jummy left after showing appreciation to segun’s

“I’ll see you later.” Nike said immediately she
“But, nobody is sending you away.” Segun replied.
“I know but i don’t want trouble.” she explained.
Nike left for her seat. Jummy got to Segun’s seat
“So you are still seeing this useless girl?” Jummy
“Keep your voice down and moreso, am not seeing
her.” Segun defended.
“You finally allowed your mum to make decisions
for you.” Jummy said.
“Don’t bring my mum into this.” Segun warned.
They stood up against themselves before Olanike
came between them.
“Segun. What’s the matter?” Nike asked.
“Sl*t. What’s yours in this?” Jummy asked.
Nike walked away with tears in her eyes.
“How dare you call her Sl*t?” Segun asked but
waited for no reply as he ran after Nike.

chain. Nike was begging for their safety but the guys
ignored her and warned Segun not to move close to
Olanike for the rest of his life.
Segun voiced out angrily and requested for a man to
man combat between him and Emma.
They accepted the contest and they were left to
battle it out. Segun succeeded in pushing Emma to
the ground and was raining lots of punches on him
before the other guys joined in support of Emma.
Nike seeing that they had dropped the things they
seized from them picked it up and took to her heels.
Segun managed to stand up and ran away with a
series of cuts on him. He took the school’s back gate
and walked towards the bus-stop where he saw
Olanike waiting for him. Seeing him in his injured
state. She quickly called a taxi and off they went to
her house in the GRA.
“Did they hurt you?” Nike asked with concern written
all over her face.
“Not really. I just had some minor cuts.” He replied.
Nike left him in the sitting room and went into the
kitchen to boil water for him so as to press his
“Ouch.” he whinced in pain.
“Is it painful?” she asked.
“Should i test it on you?” Segun asked scooping
water with his hand pouring it on her.
“Oh my God! This thing is painful.” She said
“So you don’t know before.” Segun teased her.
She gave him some painkillers against his wish but
he took them to please her.

“Oh! How are you?” he asked.
“Am fine sir.” Segun replied.
“So you are Segun right?” he asked.
“Yes sir.” Segun replied suprised. He looked at Nike
for an answer but got a smile in return.
“Enjoy yourself and make yourself comfortable.” the
