I hate to love him ❣️
Episode 17 🥰
The following day, I walked into the chemist to get some painkillers, and I saw Danladi. I greeted him but he replied coldly.
Now the thing is Danladi has been ignoring me ever since we lost Rose. He always kept to himself. I get the fact that it’s difficult especially when you ‘re still at the grieving stage, but I just didn’t get why he just kept pushing everyone away, well except Noah.
He dashed out of the chemist as soon as he got what he wanted, I followed suit and ran towards him. “hey, whatsup?”.
” Am good”. He avoided my eyes and just kept walking. I pulled him again, this time he jerked his hands away from me, and kept walking. I was surprised at his reaction…. I quickened my pace to catch up with him again. ” Dan I get what you are going through…. but ..its ..not cool..you know acting all up”.I said.
He stopped and looked at me. “what are you even saying”. He frowned his face.
“Are you okay?”.He snapped, looked at me one more time and walked away. I stood there and looked around to be sure no one else was looking. I was embarrassed at the way he reacted to me. I returned to the chemist to get my drugs and left for Moah’s house.
“that guy is rude”. I said.
Noah stopped pressing his phone and looked up. “He’s grieving Lola, it’s no big deal”.
“he’s not the only one who’s grieving, I lost my best friend too, but I didnt jave to go around acting like a jerk to everyone”. I exclaimed.
Noah smiled and dropped his phone, he leaned closer and curdled me. “people are different”. He replied.
“besides have been seeing one girl like that with him”. I grumbled.
“I guess he’s moving on, everyone one has their healing process Lola…. that’s he’s own way. you have to respect that”
“yea I know, I just feel so..so bad he’s avoiding me”. I said.
” you probably remind him of Rose, he wants put all that behind him” . He suggested.
Maybe Noah’s right, I thought.Everyone has their way of grieving.
I went into the kitchen to cook something. When I heard a familiar voice. I walked back into the room and saw Danladi. He acted like he didn’t see me and just kept talking to Noah.
I called out to him, and he gave me a nod.
” Am sorry Dan, it was not in my place to question you about who you hang out with”. I looked at him and he sighed.
He gave me a weak smile. ” its okay. besides the girl isn’t my girlfriend”. He said.
Thank God, I thought.
I wanted Danladi to move on quite alright. but I just didn’t think now was the time. it’s only been few weeks and we needed to mourn our friend.
” Am leaving the country”.He said and looked at me. Noah didn’t say anything so I guessed he already knew before now.
I was dumbfounded. I cleared my throat. “Uhm …really”.
“yep! we should all hangout this night”. He suggested. I stood up and hugged him. A small tear stained my cheeks, I wiped it away.
“Lola, I’ll be visiting once in a while, my parents just wants me around them”.He assured.
I drew back and smiled”ok…I’ll miss you..I guess you are right, we should hang out”. I agreed.
We had just resumed the first semester of my second year in the university. Everything was a bit better now, Noah and I had gone out on a lots of dates, but I was still taking my time.
He had told me the previous day we were going to hang out, but this time it was going to be in his apartment and I agreed.
I walked into the bathroom and had a bath. I rushed out after few minutes and dried myself with my towel and used the perfume, applied some makeup and wore my dress.
I took my bag and head to Noah’s place.
“thank God I have your keys, you would have kept me waiting outside”. I rolled my eyes at him as he puts some nylon bags down.
“I thought I told you to call me before coming”. He replied.
” you know….whatever”. I rolled my eyes again. I unwrapped the nylon bag and took out the burger and ice cream he bought. I served him his own and ate mine.
As soon as he finished eating, he went into the bathroom and was out in seconds. He laid next to me and I leaned in. He cupped my face in his palm and kissed me on the lips.
I returned his kiss affectionately,he tasted so good, like mint. He pulled back and whispered.
“the only thing we do his kiss, and kiss. don’t you like me?”. He furrowed his eyebrows and I smirked.
I pulled him back and my eyes locked with his. My heart pounded so fast that I thought even Noah could hear it.
He looked so doubtful. I was crazy about him, if only he knew how much. I just wanted to be sure I was doing the right thing. And more than anything, i wanted to feel
him touch my body.
It became so unbearable for me, as my lips finally pressed against his soft ones. The warmth of his mouth sent a wave through my body.I wrapped my arms around his neck.
I broke the kiss and smiled at him. ” Am in love with you, Noah. please don’t just break my heart, i beg you….”. My voice shook.
“I’ll never hurt you. I promise”. He whispered.
He reached for my spaghetti straps and slides it down my arms,next he unhooks my bra, revealing my breast. He wasted no time as he covered my tips with his mouth.
He rolled the tip of his tongue on it and gave it small bits at the same time. I let out a soft moan.
He pulled away from my breasts and removed my pants. He reached for my legs and spread it, making him lay in between them. He kissed the crook of my neck which made me whimper.
He stood up and undressed, I shut my eyes when I saw him harden. I was scared and anxious. I wanted this so bad, but I was still scared of so many things.
He laid on the bed and I slowly opened my eyes. “come on me”. He said.
I spread my legs across his laps and closed my eyes again. Noah hugged me tight and resumed kissing me…. He drew back and teased my breast. He looked at me hungrily and I rolled my eyes. He simply smiled. He lifted a side of his bed and brought out a condom , and rolled it on his s—t.
He lifted me and pushed a part of him into me and I let out a sharp cry, his eyes widen “f**k don’t tell me you are vir-“.
“yes I ..I am..”. I cried in pain.”just go in” I said and held tightly to him as my nails dug into the back of his neck.
He placed his hands on my hips and plunged into me all of a sudden. I screamed and tried to get up, but he held on to my laps.He cupped my face with his palms and kissed me, with this he pulled out half way and pushed back again. He never stopped kissing ,he probably didn’t want people to hear my cries.
He kept his slow pace as pushed in and out of me, although I felt a bit of pleasure, because I could feel myself moisten.,it was mostly pains.
Noah suddenly groaned and I felt him grow bigger in me. I let out a moan and his groan and pace increased. His breath became rough all of a sudden and then slowed down again.
He smiled and gently pulled himself out of me. I turned and backed him which made him lean closer to me, I felt his breath fan my neck as he whispered to me. “I’ll never hurt you, I promise”.
I turned and faced him”i hope you won’t”.
Episode 18 – The final episode 😢
I looked to the left, there I saw a huge crowd sitting on
the chairs. It was difficult to spot my parents,at first, but after
I looked around I saw them.
They were on the 7th row. To my right were the school faculty. They looked all happy, so were most parents.
Of course, I sat in front of Noah, he woke up late, so I couldn’t wait for him. He looked so good that I couldn’t even focus on what was been said on the podium. I smiled at the idea of me finally becoming a quantity surveyor. All those years of writing assignments and exams was finally over. I was finally a graduate.
After about an hour, the event came to an end. As people rushed outside to the field.
Most people in laughed and jumped around , while some took pictures with their friends and family. I stood at the entrance of the hall and saw Noah . I managed to pull him and push him through the crowd so that we could take pictures.
“lola” I heard the familiar voice called, it was my mom. I rushed towards her and gave her a hug, she almost stumbled. she laughed and i cried on her shoulder.
I felt tears burn through my eyes as it threatened to stream down my face.
I controlled my emotions.
It was basically tears of joy though, but then again, I wished my best friend was here with me. I wish she was alive to witness this day. To be part of people who laughed around and hugged their families.
” Good afternoon sir” I heard Noah greet my dad, I pulled from my mum and saw Noah postrating for my dad. I giggled and pulled my mom.
“mum, you remember Noah” I asked her face changed immediately, as she frowned her face. I guess she remembered him, back when I was through with secondary school, I told my mum all the bad things Noah did to me. How He bullied me and turned everyone against me.
“he’s my boyfriend” I whispered into her ear. Her face softened.
You see the thing was, I told mum about a guy who I fell in love with, but I always skipped the part where he was the same guy that bullied me in the past.
She pulled him into a hug, while i called a photographer and we all took pictures together.
Well it’s been four years after I graduated, things had been great. I got a great job, so did Noah.
He had called me like an hour ago to be sure if I was home. I had prepared some fried rice for him and kept watching a movie while I waited for him.
I heard the sound of my doorbell and I rushed to get the door. I hugged Noah as soon he entered and I kissed him. He smiled at me when we broke the kiss.
I pulled him towards the dinning table and served him his meal.
Five minutes later he was done with eating, he joined on the three-seater chair.
I caught him starring at me and I winked, he grinned and scratched the back of his neck.
what’s up with him, I thought
I returned my attention to the movie, but I could still feel his eyes burn through the side of my face.
“What’s wrong Noah” i said, curiously.
“Lola, I wanted everything to be perfect for…. for ..you “. He stuttered and I narrowed my eyes.
I stared at him,I was quiet and confused at the same time. Noah kept fumbling with his pocket, he just kept fidgettjng. I finally broke the silence “is everything okay?”. I asked.
Noah didn’t reply, instead he pulled a ring out from his pocket.
“lola,” Noah began, “I still remember when we were younger and I saw you for the first time in class,you sat alone that day, I could still remember you had this perfect tiny corn rows on your head, I was barely 12, but ihad always vowed I would talk to you that say, but I was too scared, you looked more matured than most of us…then when we finally spoke it was you standing up for Rose. I was so childish then you know… I had always wished things could just start over and I could tell you how I felt. I was a coward. Then I was given a second chance when we met again in the university, I guess we were probably meant to be together”.
” it doesn’t really matter Noah… I forgave you a long time ago”. I cleaned the tears off my face.
” it matters Lola, because ever since the day I saw you. I had always imagined you being my girl forever.
I cried and shook my head.
” Lola you complete me… you are more like my other half, my partner in crime. you are that girl who forgave me even when I didn’t deserve to be forgiven”
Noah stood up and got on one knee
began to cry and covered my mouth with one hand and allowed the tears to
fall down my cheeks. He reached for his pocket and brought out his handkerchief, I took it from him and dried my tears.
“lola ademola will you marry me?”
“Yes…yes..yes” I screamed . He slipped the ring on my finger and I pulled him into a hug.
