“Who’s there?” Jummy asked immediately Segun
knocked on the door.
“It’s me.” Segun replied.
“Come in.” she said.
Segun entered and saw Jummy siting down on
Wale’s laps(you remember him?).
He was shocked and at the same time jealous but he
had to hide it.
“Bro wale wassup now?” Segun greeted shaking
hands with him.
“Aburo i dey o.” Wale replied.
Segun tried his best to play along in their
conversation even though he was boiling with anger.
But why was he angry? I thought he was never
interested in Jummy. His conclusion after loosing
Nike was to switch to the plan B which was Jummy.
But here he was, Jummy with another guy. Not just
any guy but his brother’s friend.
“Is Mary in?” Segun asked pointing to the direction
of Mary’s room.
“No, mummy asked her to come to shop.” Jummy
“Okay.” Segun said.
They continued their conversation before Segun left
for his room.
“Bro Wale. I’m off to my room o.” Segun informed.
“Okay aburo. I’ll soon be going too.” Wale replied.
Segun walked dejectedly to his room with jealousy
written all over his face.
He got into his room, tried to catch some sleep but
sleep eluded him. He was just tossing around the
bed. He brought out his phone to chat online or surf
the internet but it seems like the network is against
him because the thing refused to go through.
Mary entered his room thirty minutes later. This
time he was in the wonderland.
“Bro, am back.” she said waking him up.
“Uhh! You’re back?” he asked rhetorically.
She gave him a searching look.
“did you meet brother Wale when you came back?
Because i left him when i was going out.” she asked.
“Yes i met him.” he replied.
“Okay.” she said.
“Mary don’t tell me they are dating.” he said
referring to Jummy and Wale.
“Bro they are dating big time.” Mary said
emphasizing on each word.
Segun thought within himself for some seconds.
“since when have they been dating?” he asked.
“About a week ago. Exactly a week after Nike came
here.” Mary explained.
“Oh! Thanks.” He said.
“Bro do you know what made you loose out on
Jummy?” Mary asked.
“No.” he replied.
“You anger and believe. You so much believe in
yourself that you think you know what is good for
you.” Mary said.
“Am i the one you are talking to in that manner?” he
“Am sorry o.” she replied.
“Mary, are you mad?” he asked advancing towards
Mary stood still and didn’t utter a word because she
knew what will happen if she tried running away or
“Mary, i don’t want you to interfere in anything
about me. Okay?” he said.
“yes.” she replied.
“Now get out.” he commanded.
Mary looked at him for the last time and left his
“Am i the one that made those girls to break up with
you? You are now transferring your agression on
me. Mtchew.” she said and hissed loudly.
Segun layed down back on his bed and reminiscied
over the events of the day.
“Nike is now back with Emmanuel, Jummy is now
dating Wale. At last am the looser.” he thought.
He went back into wonderland a few minutes later
and had a dream.
In his dream he saw a beautiful girl whom he fell in
love with a first sight. He tried asking her out.
“Segun, before i can go into a relationship with you.
You need to work on one thing.” the beautiful girl
“What are they?” he asked.
“Your anger, and your pride.” she replied.
“I promise to work on them immediately.” he said
and woke up from his slumber.
“Segun, take this and get me fuel for the generator.”

He stood up washed his face and went to the filling
station accross the street. The time was 7pm.
He kept on thinking about his dream.
