Campus Babe (Complete Story)

Campus Babe (Episode 1)

They say each day comes with its blessings and I guess some also come with their curse…let me cuT to the chase here.

It was just another afternoon on campus and we had just finished a hectic biology practical and some of my coursemates and I decided to just chill at a little and have some snacks and fizzy drinks.

we were about 7:3guys and 4girls. Among the guys,was chuks: a really cute dude who had a serious crush on me,every1 in d department knew about his love for me, but since he had never said anything about it to me,I just decided to keep him as a friend. Chuks suggested we sat at a separate area,he said he wanted to talk to me about somthing(I already knew what it was but I wanted to hear it from the horse’s mouth),so I said ok and immediately we left for anothe table, the rest of them were hailing chuks! chuks! their eyes followed us till we sat down,and I became so shy.

finally chuks started talking… So chuks started talking about his feelings for me,I had heard those lines before but there was something about how he said it…gosh! He was romantic,too bad I already had a boyfriend whom he had never met,his name was femi. I had told Femi about chuks and the gist in our department, femi had become jealous and I liked that (dnt judge me please) sometimes making a guy jealous increases his level of care and attention towards you,every girl like attention and I was no different. Chuks had finished what I would call an excellent romantic episode and he asked me to be his girlfriend, I declined and told him I already had a boyfriend whose name was femi,it was then it occured to me that femi and I had agreed to see by 3pm,it was already 3:30. I jerked and told chuks I had to meet with femi,he wore a downcast look and pleaded with me to stay a while longer. Well I couldn’t really resist his babyface charm so I decided to stay for 15minutes more, after all,there would be plenty of time to spend with femi.

Chuks and I had talked for over 20mins,he was really funny and kinda shy when talking to me,the last time I met a guy like him was in secondary school.I was really enjoying myself and had forgotten my date with Femi, when I almost had a heart attack. O my goodness!

I exclaimed,chuks demanded to know what happened,then I told him that femi was here. I had barely finished talking when femi just came and grabbed a seat at our table. Gbam gbam gbam…I could hear that drum sound in my ear…I am finished…

Campus Babe (Episode 2)

The moment they say femi at our table,my course mates began to adjust their table,one of them even took off the head phone he was putting on,probably to hear the action. I could feel the scrutiny of 5 pairs eyes at me,I was fully clothed but I felt as Unclad as I was born. They all looked away when I turned towards them,those devils! I said to myself why did this have to happen here and now?

This was a really awkward moment, Femi was normally a gentleman but with a bad temper when annoyed. Unlike him,he didn’t even accept the handshake which chuks extended his hands for, when I saw this I felt like running away from the table, I started wondering what to do,should I just put on an angry look on face and walk away?should I ask chuks to excuse us?that would be so unfair I thought, My thoughts were interrupted by Femi’s voice “so what are you doing here he asked” I was so scared of him because I know he could create a wild scene so I calmly said “nothing,I just came to eat something after my practical session”. He looked at the two empty cans of sprite and then replied,really with a sarcastic look, he then asked”how long have you been here?” I decided to lie,and said not long just 30mins, Chuks glanced at me and threw his face . When I said this Femi was filled with rage and he said “so you’ve started lying right? I’ve been watching you for over 2hrs sitting here with this guy laughing stupidly” I could feel my body go tensed and sweaty…

Femi’s eyes were filled with fury,so you kept me waiting for hours because of another guy,I was already filled with fear,I managed to stutter I’mmm sorry,I could feel the tears that were about to drop form my eyes,I was fighting to hold them back , Chuks noticed this and could not stand it so he decided to defend me. she told me she had a date,I pleaded with her to stay with me just a little longer,its not really her fault, Chuks told femi. Femi totally ignored him,he didn’t even act as if anybody just talked. Out of anger Femi yelled “you are a big fool,so its because of this idiot you stood me up…after everything we’ve been through I dnt blame you at all” Chuks couldn’t take it any longer,he yelled back at him “what’s up with you?how can you talk to a lady like that?dnt you have manners,I dnt mind how you talk to me but you shouldn’t speak to her like that,afterall she’s apologised ,dnt talk to her like again,at least not in my presence…

I just sat down pitying myself, imagining a lot of crazy things,what if they got into a fight?(Although its kinda cute when two guys fight over you,but not in this case),I knew that if such a thing happened,my course mates would not hesitate to record the video,another thought creeped in,what if Femi slapped me and beat me up I got really scared (because I know say I know kukuma get power)I was simply enveloped in shame,my course mates were probably enjoying this scene,I silently wished I could disappear at that moment. My emotional side got the better of me. I pleaded with femi to stop embarrassing me and to be considerate of the fact that my course mates were watching us. He told me to shut up which I quickly did. After a while,he took a deep breath,hissed at me and told me to get him something to it,I was both surprised and relieved ,at least he wouldn’t talk much while eating. Meanwhile, Chuks was still angry and I also pleaded with him to calm down,he had no choice but to do so… finally! peace at last. Or so I thought…

Campus Babe (Episode 3)

I immediately left for the snacks bar,and bought him a bottle of coca cola and meatpie,I wondered within myself “what are my coursemates going to think?that a girl like me could be subjected to such humiliation” I knew that this incidence was going to lower their respect for me. Femi started eating,and there was silence on our table I just sat there watching chuks and Femi,who were sitting opposite each other, Femi was giving me a look that indicated his disappointment and this made me look away.on the other hand, Chuks had this soft look in his eyes, the kind of look that could comfort someone in distress. I looked towrds the area wher my coursemates sat, as soon as they say my eyes they all pretended to be doing somethign else,but I knew they were watching us. Femi finished his meal and cleared his throat,he apologised to chuks and extended his hands for a handshake accompanied with a smile, chuks accepted his handshake and his apology.Femi got up from his seat,greeted Chuks and left without saying a word to me. I tried to signal him to stop,but he didn’t respond. On a normal day I would run up to him and plead with him till he decides to change his mind,but this day was not a normal day,My coursemates were watching,they had already enjoyed the previous episode,I couldn’t afford to create another one. Few minutes after Femi left,chuks and I decided to go home and so did our course mates. Chuks and I walked ahead of them since we all decided to trek,I apologised to chuks and he said it was okay,that the person I really needed to apologise to was Femi, I knew this but I just couldn’t figure out a way to and this made me really moody,but before we got to the schOol gate,i was already cracked up with laughter from chuks and his funny jokes.one thing that amazed me was how my course mates kept shut about what they just watched,not even one of them asked what went wrong, I had a feeling they were going to ask Chuks later. We said goodbye and retired to our various destinations for the evening.

I couldn’t rest when I got home,I kept dialing his number though he cut my call whenever he saw it,I knew this because whenever I dialled his number it read”number busy”…I didn’t give up,I kept sending apology text messages for two days,I even sent some christian messages just to make him know I was sorry,all of these were to no avail. Within those two days,I visited his place up to 4 times, his roomate kept saying he was not around. My sorryness was turned into anger,so he has decided to ignore me right? I’ve done worse things and it didn’t take him so much time to forgive me,since he has decided to ignore me,I’ll ignore him too,he would be the one to beg for my calls,my pride got the better of me and i resolved to ignore him and anything that has to do with him until he comes back begging(which he usally does),afterall,i had tried. Unfortunately,I didn’t know there was more to come… I thought I could carry on well without Femi, I forgot all we had been through in our first year in school,if not for his assistance I wouldn’t have paid my school fees on time ,I decided to forget all the good times we had, all the times he had been there for me(too many to count).

I let my pride overrule my love for him, I kept saying to myself”afterall,I’m pretty and intelligent almost any guy I like would want to go out with me, who does Femi even think he is?” These thoughts greatly affected my actions,I decided to pay no more visits and ignore his call and instead spend more time with chuks at least that way I could overlook the feeling of loneliness I was experiencing.

unfortunately, I couldn’t really stick to my decisions, in fact no day passed without me dialing his number,I kept thinking of him (dnt blame me,the guy was my FIRST love,wats a girl gonna do?) After two weeks of no contact,I jumped to the conclusion that Femi and I were through,I had to deal with a strange feeling of heartbreak accompanied with depression. It took me about a month to get over Femi,I couldn’t bear the thought that I had lost femi,at some point I got worried but my pride wouldn’t let me dial his number again, “two weeks is enough, he has to be the one to call first” I kept saying this to myself. One week later, my phone rang and although I deleted Femi’s phone number,I still knew his phone number in my head. As soon as I saw his number,I felt joy inside and hurriedly picked his call. “My superman(I usually called him that),I said with a playful voice…hey! what’s up he replied with a very formal voice.

immediately he said this,I knew he wanted to say something serious. “There’s something I would like to tell you,he said with a more serious tone…

Campus Babe (Episode 4)

“Well I want to apologise for ignoring you all these while,I’ve just been trying to sort myself out and recover from the way you treated me,I’ve not been able to…I dnt think I can continue with this anymore,I love you,I really do but I can’t take another episode of that kind of nonsense which you displayed the other day, you dnt owe me any explanation or apologies I think its best we stay apart at least for now,this was a hard decision to make…bbutt… Just know that I still love you” femi said. I couldn’t believe what I had just heard,I wish h he had never called at least that way I could keep hope alive,how could he be so harsh,because of something as little as that(I call it little because I have heard about worse in relationships) he was really acting like the egocentric idiots (some guys are)…how can you quit a relationship with someone you love because of somthing like this. I was greatly disappointed and haert-broken…

Two weeks had past since Femi’s break- up call,I had lost weight due to thinking and not eating,I had become a shadow of myself…all my friends had told me to get over Femi,they had tried hooking me up with some guys just to help me get over him,but it wsnt successful. If femi,had told me he didn’t love me anymore,it would have been easier for me to move on,but this wasn’t the case,he really emphasised on the statement “I love you” before hanging up.why did he have to put me in a state of emotional imprisonment…it was hard for me to forget him and start another relationship,after two years of loving the love of my life.

During my period of emotional heart- break,I couldn’t concentrate well on my academic work(it was that bad),my roomate wanted to call my mum,but I pleaded with her not to,because I knew my mum was gonna march down to my school,if she found out I was involved with a boy in anyway-to her,I was too young to have anything to do with any boy, and she had the mentality that every boy-girl relationship involved s*x. After much pep talks a nd advice sessions from my roomate(garnished with threats to call my mum),I decided to get back on my feet and ignore anything that had to do with boys(at least for the rest of the semester). I was still recovering from my distress when I met another shocker, I saw femi at “OUR” favorite chat spot with another girl…

Campus Babe (Episode 5)

I was so angry,I wanted to approach them,but something inside me told me to ignore them since they hadn’t seen me.

After minutes of struggling within myself I decided to go and confront Femi,especially when I saw how they were laughing and holdIng hands,I didn’t notice any real intimacy between them,but I just didn’t like the fact that another girl was hanging around my boyfriend at our most special place,barely a month after our break up.am I that easy to forget?I asked myself as I took a close examination at the girl,she’s not even half as pretty as I am, Femi doesn’t like to hang around people(especially girls)that aren’t good looking. She was putting on designer wear all over,her shoes,her hand bag,her jean and her top looked classic.

She looked “expensive” . Could that be why Femi was with her,but femi had no reason to be a gold digger,his dad was a big time offshore worker in an oil company,and his mom was a banker,I thought to myself. I was jolted out of my thought by the sound of Femi’s voice,I didn’t know when I had walked up to where Femi was,I was too busy thinking. Hi,femi said in a playful voice,he seemed to be in a really good mood. Hi I replied with a sarcastic tone in my voice,while eyeing the girl at his side.

Meet mY cousin amy, before I could introduce myself, Amy jumped in and said wow! You must be prisi,his best friend,he’s said a lot about you already.

What???!!!I exclaimed within myself,so Femi couldn’t even teLl his so-called cousin about us,he had to lie to her (reducing me to best friend level was so low of him,how could he?).how was I sure he wasn’t even lying about her being his cousin. Do you mind joining us? Amy asked, I saw a look on Femi’s face that implied that he didn’t want me there,but I ignored that look,feigned a smile and said : no,I would love to.

I joined them despite the fact that I was having a lecture, and we started talking… I enjoyed the conversation,but one thing that struck me was the fact that Femi never mentioned anything about us during the entire conversation,even when we talked about relationships,I didn’t have much to say because I just broke up with my first real boyfriend and I was expecting him to talk more on it. He just skipped anything about us,he talked more about his ex-girlfriends much to my anger.I had to pretend I didn’t feel any anger because of Amy,she seemed so ignorant of any strife between I and Femi. I was lost in thought only to be brought back by Femi’s soft voice”prisi… erm,there’s something I wanted to tell you prisi(I felt some sweetness in my belly,his voice was d–n cute,especially when he was trying to be soft)” yes I said casually with a warm smile. Well, I was planning to come see you at your hostel,but since you’re already here,lemme just say it…I’ve found a girl that I love and loves and can RESPECT me (he made special emphasis on the word respect).Amy put on a great smile,wow bro,am happy for you…she hugged him and encouraged me to do the same. She didn’t even notice how shocked I looked,my eyes were teary as a result of what my ears had just heard and what my heart was still hurting over. Come on girl,give him a hug that’s good news…he’s your best friend isn’t he?awwww! dnt tell me you’re jealous, Amy taunted(for a girl looking so rich,she seemed nice enough). It was going to be the last hug ever,so I made the best of it,buy holding him tighter than ever(at that moment,I relinquished all the pain in my heart),I almost cried(I still dnt know what force in the universe held back those tears),I freed myself from his embrace and that was it. My eyes were too red to remain unoticed by Amy,why do you wanna cry she asked…nothing dear,I’m just so happy he’s found love again,they’re actually tears of joy. Femi couldn’t look into my eyes,I bade Amy goodbye and turned to leave,prisi! I heard Femi’s shaky voice,please don’t leave me(I felt like getting a Knife and stabbing him to death,all my love had turned into hatred in that split second….is he crazy? What does he want from me?).I hope you’re happy, I turned to look at him with tears running down my eyes,and I ran away from there,I heard Amy calling out,I didn’t respond I just didn’t want to see him again…ever I left that place wondering and pondering on how foolishly I had just reacted,how can I miss an important lecture and possible test just because of a guy that didn’t seem to care,he’s not worth it joor,I sighed…something has to be done about this,and really fast,am beginning to lose it. I knew I needed to re-organise my priorities,my academics had suffered a lot because of one stupid love affair…I made up my mind not to ever love again. D–n guys! I hate them,they’re just selfish idiots.

Campus Babe (Episode 6)

Exams were fast approaching and I had a lot to make uo fro because fo my silly mistakes…I became a regular visitor to the library,I didn’t want to take any chances at failure,I knew my parents would be so angry if I failed. With a wall constructed in my herat and my focus strictly on my academics,I became a shadow of myself,no friends,no hanging out,no form of socialisation,I became like a triangular student-me,my school,and church and occasionaly the market(forget o,man must whack heartbreak or not).I was able to cover up my academic lapses(I think it was divine intervention) and even had onw wEek extra to just relax my brain.I had become an anti-male,I didn’t want to see any guy close to me,this was a little bit difficult (dnt mean to brag but,I’m not exactly the kind of girl that most guys would see and pass by) I had this innocent looking babyface,that made a lot of guys think they could easily take advantage of me… hmmn,those guys got it really tough from me,I became rude and unfriendly to all guys,I even became scared at a point of how I had become just because of one heart break.

The semester exams were soon over,and it was time for holidays. I was just chilling at the pool one sunday afternoon when I heard a husky voice from behind.

Prisi!…

prisi dear how have you been? Femi asked in a seemingly concerned manner.

i hissed and said,I’ve been just the way you left me to be,and i don’t think that is your concern in anyway i got up from where i was sitting and walked away. prisi!please hold on,okay…i was defiant and i picked up my clothes flagged down a cab,and left.

on my way home,different thoughts were going through my mind,maybe i should have just listened to him,idiot! i don’t think he would have said anything relevant,if he wanted to,he could have called a long time ago,or did he not know my number.I was brought back by the sound of the taxi drivers loud horn.Driver, wetin sef? you wan block pesin ear,shoo?i said with annoyance in my voice.come,no b me make you vex o,if you know wetin dey vex you beta maintain yoursef o, the driver replied. I no blame you,na because say you see me for you useless taxi na,nonsense,i hissed. When i got home,i couldn’t help but curse myself for refusing to hear him out,a part of me still wanted him badly,i kept rewinding his voice in my head…so soft,i wondered how i was able to ignore it for the first time.

should i call him? hell no! who does he think he is? if he really had anything important to tell me,he would have called.

“somebody saaaaavee me”…my phone was ringing, i knew my superman was calling…that was his ringing tone.

“hello?”…

Campus Babe (Episode 7)

“I just wanted to say am sorry for everything,I know I was very wrong to have left you like that…please dear find a place in your heart to forgive me.I still love you ??kªª¥°??,so what do you say about us getting back together? I was so confused,angry and happy all at the same time.I wanted to hang up,but then I thought it would too immature…I decided to reply immediately,I really wanted to say yes,but then a thought creeped into my head. “I will make him pay,if he’s truly sorry he should be ready to fight for me,I have to make him earn my love so he would learn to value me more(in other words,I wanted to teach his sorry butt0ckz a lesson).so I said “am sorry dear,I already have someonelse am in love with,and we just started dating two days ago,if only you had called earlier…

“Prisi,I know you’re still in love with me… why don’t you just accept me so we can start afresh,I promise I’ll be more caring,more lovi…

I didn’t let him finish,I hung up. I started wondering,what did I just do sef?eh? Maybe there is really no need for him to fight, No! I replied to myself…at least I have to play hard-to-get for sometime. I knew fully well that I was still in love with him,but I just had to put him at a tight corner,the only thing I needed now was a real “fake” boyfriend to instigate the fight. Hmmnn who will I use now,I’ve been really mean to most guys lately. Tomorow,I’ll check my contact list and hatch my plan.I smiled to myself,everything was going to be perfect.

Hello charles,its Prisca,I just wanted to apologise for the way I treated you that day…look I’m really sorry. If there is a way I can make it up to you,feel free to call me back and let me know…talk to you later,bye. I smiled satisfactorily, Charles was really in love with me,there couldn’t have been a better person to use,I didn’t even let him say anything on the phone.I knew he was going to call me back…

Campus Babe (Episode 8)

Sometimes,life takes us places we never thought we could be and makes us realise some mistakes we made but shouldn’t have in the first place. On my way to meet charles,I was involved in a car accident. The driver of the taxi lost control of the sterring whEel,the next thing I realised was that the car started swirling about 360 degrees,this happened in four consecutive sessions. I had never felt so close to dying,I really thought I was going to die,I covered both ears with my left and right hand and shut my eyes tightly,images of the people I love began to flash;my mum,my dad,my siblings and my superman-Femi…

Shortly after the vigorous spin and the continous shouting of “JESUS” by myself and the rest members of the vehicle,I opened my eyes and looked upwrds thankfully for the gift of life.I took it upon myself that I had just been given a second chance to make things right.I knew it was a miracle(how else would you explain coming out of a vehicle with FOUR deflated tyres,without even a SCRATCH??).

The whole experience was really traumatic for me,I couldn’t tell Femi though we talked,but I told charles. After telling him what happened,Charles was willing to love me with his life,but then I realised that I couldn’t even pretend to love him. Femi was the one and only guy I’ve ever loved.I coulndt stand charles’ presence around me,he was a really cute guy with a big heart but I just couldn’t do it. I felt really bad but two days after,I came clean with him and told him I only wanted to use him.I apologized to him and he forgave me.

Finally,the holidays were over and we were back to school.Femi and I got back together and I told him about my previous plans to make him jealous and he simply smiled and with that soft charming voice(the type I was a sU-Cker for),he said “what’s meant to be will be, and that’s what we are;MEANT TO BE. I’ll always love you” After this,I said “I’ll always love you too” and we kissed,there and then on the road (though it was late in the evening)…

while strolling down with him,I realised how much I loved him,so much that somtimes it scares me.

###THE END ….
