LADIES COMMON MISTAKES IN A RELATIONSh!p
I soon heard a steady knock on my door, which brou-ght me out from my thoughts. I immediately composed myself as i went to open my door and when i opened it, there stood Samuel with a smile on his gentle face, and he peered into the dark room.
“Are you still slee-ping? It’s almost 7:45pm” he asked me while i f0rç£d a smile.
“Actually i wasn’t even slee-ping oo” i replied as i yawned, switched on my bulb and allowed him in. He entered, looked around for a while before staring at me again. I tried to hide my face by looking down, but his sharp eyes noticed my dull face and red eyes. Seriously guys can be very sharp when it comes to re-ading a girl’s face, especially a girl they are interested in.
“What’s wrong? What happened?” he asked seriously and with care, while i sat on my be-d and looked away, he was soon beside me and he held my hands tenderly.
“plea-se what is it, maybe i could be of help?” he asked, while i f0rç£d a smile.
“Don’t worry it’s nothing” i replied, but he just shook his head.
“I don’t believe you, moreover nob©dy cries over nothing” he insisted.
“Samuel it’s nothing serious, i just remembered someone i used to care for” i explained and he smiled.
“Ok, I now un-derstand, so where is he?” he asked but i just gave him a blank look.
“Why do you want to know?” i asked back as i rolled my eyes, which made him to smile and shrug. But then my retort didn’t put him off, instead he drew closer to me and looked into my eyes.
“Sweetheart a problem shared is a problem solved, moreover sharing your story with a friend sometimes helps to reduce tension and bad feelings, and i equally promise to share my own story with you when you are done with yours” he said to me fearlessly, while i looked at him silently as i battled within my mind whether to share my secret with him or not. I thought to myself that no matter my feelings for him, he still is a boy and might use it against me in future, but the way he stared at me really showed he cared and the sparkle in his eyes were very real and filled with love. My eyes melted again and i bur-st into tears while he held me in his arms and consoled me.
“It’s okay baby” he said with his gentle voice, and truthfully I didn’t know how i felt that moment cos it has been a long time a guy held me in that manner.
His arms were comforting and i really felt like slee-ping in them when he held me, but then i equally didn’t want to appear vulnerable or weak to him and so i managed to control and keep myself in check by drying my eyes.
“It’s okay everything happens for a purpose, what are you going to eat tonight?” he asked, while i said nothing.
“I have soup, i can make garri for you” he said, which made me to laugh.
“Thanks Sam, you are a nice guy but don’t worry, i will drink tea with my biscuit” i replied, while he shrugged in resignation.
“Don’t worry once i’m done with my night bath i will come and spend an hour with you” i had said to him, when i finally composed myself and st©pped my tears that evening. He stared at me as if he was re-ading my mind throu-gh my eyes.
“Do you promise? Cos i can’t wait to hear your story?” he asked, while i smiled and nodded.
“Yea i promise” i replied, before he stood up and left in order to give me space to take my bath.
As you all know, we girls do like to keep our secrets to ourselves but then Samuel really appeared very special to me, because he had few friends and didn’t socialize much. This made me to trust him and seriously the feelings i had for him was equally so much that i was even ashamed of myself sometimes. Yet, I couldn’t help it and at precisely 8:55pm that fateful evening i saw myself in his room where we stared at each other as if we were searching for something in our eyes.
After taking my night bath that evening, i took my biscuit and a cu-p of tea to his room because i promised to come and stay with him for a while in order to tell him my story.
“So dear, i’m all ears” he said to me with a smile, while i drank my tea and smiled back as i prepared to share my story with him.
And there i sat in his room about to reveal my inti-mate secrets to a male who really was nothing but a stranger to me, if not that i had feelings for him, and with a smile on my face i opened my mouth to do what i never knew i would ever do in my life.
Hmmmmm, love really works wonders.
I told him the first few chapters of my love life with Emmanuel, which was focused mainly on how we started and how he took away my vir-ginity, which equally turned him into an add!çt, and truthfully i really knew not what pushed me into revea-ling some [email protected] of my inti-mate life to him, even though i kept the main [email protected] to myself, while he listened attentively with his eyes focused on me.
“So how did it all end?” he seriously asked, while i breathed de-eply because i st©pped my story at the scene where Emmanuel [email protected] me. A smile equally displa-yed on my face as i noticed the excitement with which he asked the last question.
“I will say our affair officially ended on his graduation day” i replied, as the memory of that [email protected] day rushed into my head, while Samuel nodded his head for me to continue.
Then i continued
Emmanuel’s graduation day really was a day i will never forget in a hurry and that night was equally spectacular, as we made love all throu-gh in [email protected] of good things to come, without knowing that I was [email protected] the end of our relationsh!p.
That [email protected] day equally was a very great and special day for Emmanuel, and his happiness knew no bounds.
After settling the hostel neighbours by giving them a carton of malt and beer to share, he dragged me out from the hostel happily.
“Dearie it’s you and i today, lets go catch some fun” he whispered into my ear, while i giggled happily. (foolish me).
He took me to a small fast food joint at the other end of the town, where he spoiled me with chicken pepper soup and ice cream, together with sweet ro-mantic words which followed it.
It really was one of the best ro-mantic moments i ever had with him and i equally was the happiest girl on earth that fateful day. When we got back to his room around 8pm in the evening, he held me tenderly.
“Baby thanks a lot for being by my side all throu-gh my struggle as a student” he whispered, while my eyes melted. Oh I was so much in love with him as i prepared myself to give him my b©dy once again.
“Dear plea-se continue” i heard Benjamin say to me, while i stared back at him with a smile on my face.
“Sometimes a little girl nee-ds to keep some stories to herself” i said and win-ked at him, while he shifted unhappily where he sat.
“It isn’t fair oo” he protested, which made me to smile further.
“I’m very sorry but i can’t continue” i apologised, as i reached for his hand which i held softly.
Truthfully, i couldn’t really bring myself to share the rest of my story with him, because a girl really nee-ds to keep some secrets to herself.
“I think it’s time to get going” i said to Samuel who just looked at me unhappily.
“You are not keeping your promise, it’s not what we agreed” he continued to protest while i stood up.
“Don’t worry in due time you will know everything” i said to him, while he shrugged.
“I don’t have a choice nah, so let me just wait hopefully” he said to me, while i laughed, carried my tea cu-p and left for my room.
I rinsed my tea cu-p when i got to my room before lying down to sleep, but still sleep eluded me once again, as the memory of my last moments with Emmanuel flashed back into my head.
His goodbye really was the most sincere words he ever spoke to me and equally the saddest words i ever heard, but then i misinterpreted his goodbye thinking that it was just a normal [email protected] words of a travelling b©yfri£nd, without knowing that it was a final goodbye from a guy abandoning his girlfriend and walking out from a relationsh!pwhich she jealously guided with her whole heart.
After his final exams, he had only stayed for two weeks before packing up some of his properties, even though his rent was not yet due. My heart really skipped countless times as i helped him pack his things, which i did out of loyalty and not because i wanted him to leave.
“Why are you leaving so soon, how about your clearance?” i had asked, while he just smiled as he held me.
“Don’t worry dear, they have all been taken care of and i’m just leaving because i don’t want to waste any time in preparing the road for our future” he replied sweetly, while i stared at him with a fast beating heart which was filled with love.
“I’m very scared” i said to him, while he smiled before k!ss!ngme pas-sionately.
“You have nothing to fear princess, i can never forget your beauty nor the love we share together, just trust me, infact i should really be the one to be scared, because you are too beautiful to be left alone” i heard him say, while i blu-shed, because his sweet words were really too much for my inexperienced little [email protected] head, and hisl-ips rested on mine again.
He had control over me again at that point, that i was just a toy in his hands and even when we quarreled i forgave him easily even when i swore not to.
As we made love once again, i really didn’t know that it was a goodbye gift from him, all i did was just to enjoy every bit of it without knowing that i was being dumped.

As soon as Emmanuel packed and left the hostel, i felt very empty and it looked as if i had lost something precious, cos i really had gotten used to his pres£nce. I couldn’t even stay five minutes without thinking about him, nor stay an hour without flashing or calling his phone.
Seriously it really appeared as if my whole life depended on him and that was equally when i started to notice some changes in him.
His phone calls drastically reduced to the extent of twice on a very good week, which i really didn’t care about, since i did most of the calling, but the one which pained me the most was when he didn’t call me on my birthday, but only s£nt me a text message which got me extremely annoyed……
“How can a text message be compared to his sweet voice?” i had asked myself throu-ghout that day as i waited patiently for his phone call which never [email protected]£. Yet with tears in my eyes i re-ad his text message over and over again till i finally sle-pt that fateful night without hearing his voice.
“Or was he waiting for me to call him on my own birthday?” i wondered sorrowfully.
It really was very disheartening to receive phone calls from friends who meant nothing to me, while the person i called my b©yfri£ndfound it very ha-rd to call me and that moment was equally when i began to have serious doubts about him.
“Did i truly choose the right person?” i asked myself over and over again that fateful night.
I didn’t expect him to buy me jewels, nor clothes, because i knew he just graduated, but all i wanted was just to hear his voice that [email protected] day which was very ha-rd for him to satisfy me with.
I couldn’t control my emotions the following day and with a shaking hand, i dialed his phone number.
“Hey baby, what’s up?” he asked when he picked his phone, but due to my anger i couldn’t answer him, but instead poured out my unhappiness to him.
“You have really changed! You can’t even call me on my birthday, you are very heartless, plea-se don’t call my number again!”
I poured out to him before ending the call. Even though i shouted at him, i really had expected him to call me back. So I held my phone hopefully, thinking that he would call back but he equally found it too difficult to call back. I really can’t describe how i felt that moment, because i was more than devastated. He finally called me around 9pm, but due to my anger i refused to answer my phone, which rang five times before a text message [email protected]£ in.
The text message was from him and when i re-ad it, i nearly fainted.
“I know it will come to this one day but i never expected it could be so soon, anyway goodluck with your life, i know you are with another guy that’s why you are not answering your phone. I won’t disturb you again just as you ordered”
The text message he s£nt me really smote my heart and tears dropped out from my eyes as I re-ad it over and over again.
“So Emmanuel had never trusted me”, i said to myself as i cried and the urge to call him back and beg him that moment was so great, that i had to drop my phone.
“Life why are you this cruel?” i heard myself ask. Mariam my roomate rushed to my side with concern written all over her face but i said nothing as i handed my phone to her. Her face equally turned white as she re-ad the text message Emmanuel s£nt me.
“Hmmmm so so cruel”, i said to myself as all the memories kept flashing back……
“Baby girl, this text message shouldn’t depress you nah. I believe he is just angry, you know how guys behave sometimes” Mariam tried to console me but yet i was unable to st©p myself from crying that night.
The following morning, she called him with her own phone but he refused to answer which really surprised Mariam and all she did was just to shrug and shake her head.
“Don’t get yourself worked up over him, he should be the person to cry for you, so dear lets forget about him and prepare for market, you know our food stuffs has finished” she said to me as she expertly changed the t©pic.
Emmanuel never called me, neither did i see him for the rest of that year but i soon pushed him to the back of my mind as i focused all my energy in my studies, which was why i [email protected]£ to school in the first place and not to fall in love with someone who doesn’t deserve me.
However that period was very traumatic for me, beause i woke up sometimes feeling very lonely. What really kept me going was my determination to get over him as i swore not to be so easily used again. Although i couldn’t really believe that a guy like Emmanuel, who took me when i was very pure could easily forget me, as if i never existed. This equally made my heart very strong and ha-rd towards guys that most of them avoided me because of my cold behaviour towards them.
It was also because of my past with Emmanuel, which made me to pack out from my former hostel and move into the hostel where i met Samuel.
Hmmm Samuel. The guy who softened me a bit and made my heart beat fast again.
“Hope I’m not ma-king a major mistake again?” i asked myself as i tossed around on my be-d but then i really didn’t know how his charms were able to soften my heart and turn me back to a sweet girl capable of loving again.
I was still thinking about him when my phone rang briefly and st©pped, when i checked the caller, it was no other person than Samuel who had flashed me. A smile appeared on my face.I checked the time it was 12:15am.
“Why is he awake by this time of the night? Is he thinking about me?” i asked myself with a smile, and i was still pondering over it when sleep finally carried me away.
Oh my Samuel……
Can you tell your [email protected] everything about your past?
