During the week, I got a call from my ex. I wondered why he was calling me. I didn’t pick up the first time. I eventually ended up picking when he called repeatedly. He started with an apology speech; he spent close to 10 minutes apologising.

I told him I didn’t have anything against him.

I added, “I believe everything that happened between us happened because we were never meant to be together. If we are truly meant to be together, then you wouldn't leave me for someone else.”

I was surprised at his response;

“No... no... no! Don’t say that. We are meant to be; it’s the work of the devil.”

“Work of the devil indeed,” I hissed.

“That girl hypnotised me; I wasn’t in my right senses.”

Tunde, will you please spare me all these sermons. I have things to do.”

“Please, don’t hang up on me. I’m very sorry. Pamilerin, please I want you back in my life.”

“Now you make me laugh, what happened to your golden girlfriend?”


“She’s no longer in my life; she almost destroyed me. Antonia is not a wife material at all, she's a gold digger.”

“So I’m now your rebound girl right? You are my past and I want you to remain there. Please find yourself another girl cos the number you just dialed it’s not available.”

Pamilerin, please… let’s meet and talk things through.”

“I’m sorry, I can’t meet with you. I don’t have that luxury of time.”

Pamilerin, I know I have wronged you, I made a mistake, please forgive me this time. You can yell at me, you can even hit me. I just want you back in my life.”

“That will never happen! Not in this life, not even in the next.”

Pamilerin, please don’t say that. I still love you… I never stopped loving you,” he pleaded.

Tunde! In Justin Beiber's voice: Go...and… love... yourself, I don’t care about you anymore, I’ve moved on and you should do the same.”


“You don’t like Pamilekun? Did you suddenly became a dullard, because the last time I checked, you were the second best student in my set. It’s like you’ve forgotten everything you did to me. Or do you need me to refresh your memory?”

“I know, I now realise my mistakes. It’s just that I still love you; no other woman can understand me the way you do.”

“Since you’ve refused to understand simple English that it’s over between us, I would have to press the red button,” I said and disconnected the call.

I got so pissed that day; he ruined my day. Tunde’s call opened fresh wounds.



Daniel called later in the day. He noticed I wasn’t in a right state of mind. He asked what the problem was. Initially, I told him it’s nothing, but he pestered me so much that I eventually opened up to him.

“I don’t think that guy is worth all the stress you are putting yourself through,” he said.

“I know, but he made me remember everything I went through in his hands. I mean he treated me like a piece of thrash.”

“Do you still love him?”

“That will make me the dumbest girl on earth, if I still love that kind of a guy. After everything he did to me!”

“Then put him in his place and take your mind off the past. Don’t allow him destroy your happiness.”

“OK, I will. Thanks.”

“Now I want you to smile.”

“Thanks, your words already melted my anger,” I smiled.

“I’m glad to hear that,” he said.

We changed the topic and we talked for a while. He made plans for the weekend and I promise to see him on Saturday.

After that day, my ex kept on calling but I always ignored his calls.
