I got admission into the University to study pharmacy. I had to stay off camp because I wasn't used to staying with lots of people in the same room. The cost of a room off campus was too expensive so I needed someone who I could share with to split the rent.
I found someone, Vera, a very nice girl, same shape and height as me. We clicked immediately and became so close as months went by. Vera became my best friend. My friends were her friends, my enemies, her enemies. In fact, she was like a sister I never had.
Months went by and we had good neighbours who we spend some time with after lectures. Some days, we would gist about school, our love lives, family etc. Everyone showed off their boyfriend's except me.
Well, I wasn't ready to be in any relationship though. So what's my own na...
Oh, did I forget to tell you my name? I'm Fifi.
One day, Vera and I were so bored and we had to stroll somewhere to help our self out of boredom.
On our way back, a car, stopped beside us and offered us a lift.
Well, we agreed and entered the car.
The guy was so cute! He introduced himself as Desmond.
Desmond asked for our names, we told him.
I noticed he was more interested in Vera than I.
He asked for Vera’s number which she gave him and he promised to call her the next day which she was ok with... Then he stopped us in front of our lodge and drove off.
Oh, did I tell you that people love Vera?
Sometimes people just see her and Favour her with either cash or gifts. I keep asking what Vera did to get this kind of likeness. Sometimes, I withdraw from her. She outshines me when I'm with her. So I try to stay away from her so I would shine too.
Did I tell you about her social media?
On Facebook, Vera has thousands of followers...
On twitter, same
On Instagram same too...
But she is not a celebrity. Vera is from a poor home. Her dad is a retired civil servant, while her mum is a business woman...
Hian, i wonder what she posts that gives her this attention. I asked myself. I had to start sending request to all her friends which she wasn't against. Every passing day, her followers increase. But yet, I was just there. No one looked at my side like they do hers.
One good day, I wanted to know how Vera met her boyfriend and know everything about him.
She said her boyfriend's name is Collins.
“How did you meet Collins?” I asked.
Vera smiled. She looked at me, and laughed so hard.
I was dumbfounded...
“Why are you laughing like a witch na...” I asked.
She said, nothing, that I would be surprised how she met her boyfriend and I'll be more surprised that they haven't seen face to face...
