It was the 14 February 2018, a day that happens to be known as “Lovers day.”
I was supposed to accompany my friends to the cinema, however, I also planned to sneak out to meet my girl, a girl I got newly. I had N3000 with me but I didn’t know the girl had plans for me.
Came 6 pm, I told my friends that I was not feeling well. After expressing some concern and having my assurance that I would be okay by myself, they left me. As soon as they were gone, I quickly dressed up and rushed to Villa Maris.
I met her; she was looking so adorable, lovely and her smile was busy killing me. I asked her what she wanted to take and she said fried rice and chicken with sauce and a big Hollandia. When the waiter brought the bill and it I checked it, it amounted to N2900, so all I had after paying the bill was N100.
I told her that I loved her and she replied thanks. I told her I liked the way she smiles and she said thanks, again. I excused myself to use the bathroom and on returning to our table, I found that she has ordered for a second serving. I wanted to cry. I was looking at the girl like sheyi law.
When the waiter asked for money, I pretended to be on a phone call when I wasn’t calling anyone. While I was praying in the name of a call, those friends of mine happened to stop by to pick some takeout before heading to the cinema. I quickly borrowed N1500, paid and left the girl. I never called her again. It was really bad for me that day.
