My name is adeolu.
There’s a saying. “What can’t kill you can make you stronger.”
But the truth is action speaks louder than mere words.
I don’t know how strong I will be coming out from this
predicament that I have found myself.

This all started about 2 years ago in my youth service year in
Kogi state. There was this very good canteen not too far

from Yagba East local government council, where I frequent
often for my CDS. It was the aroma that lured me to the
place, the savory of scented stew and fried meat, it was
irresistible, I couldn’t just evade myself from the luscious
captivity that overwhelmed me Perhaps, a simple restrain
would have changed history, would have saved me from all
these. As I entered the canteen, I grabbed a plate and stood
on the queue salivating and waiting for my turn. When it got
to my turn, before me was something more compelling than
the meal that I expected. My eyes got locked in contact with
the young lady who was serving the meal.
She was beautiful beyond expression, I could hardly
compose myself and it took me some few seconds to reboot.
She then asked.
“What food do you want sir?” In fluent English. I stuttered.
“Give me….. rice N50, dodo N50 and 3 pieces of meat.”

I was going to pay and she refused to collect the money. I
didn’t understand the kind gesture, I then insisted and she
smiled at me and said.
“It’s okay, it’s on me.” I then took a seat and started eating.
While I was eating, I noticed her looking at me at some

instance. It drove my curiosity wild and I was eager to know
her. She sounded quite polished and she looked more

dignified than running a local canteen, I knew there was
more to it. As I was done, I went to meet her and said to her.
“Thank you very much. My name is Adeolu can I know your
name?” She giggled and said. “My name is Tope.”
As we both smiled at each other like teens gripped in some
high school crush. So I left the place hoping to return the
following day. I got to my rented room and I was still
thinking of Tope.
She was average height, dark skinned and very attractive.
Her curves were at the right angle and her bursts were an
eye candy.
I knew I needed companion to quench my lust while I served
my country in the beautiful state of Kogi and Tope just
happened to fit into the picture. Being a nerd and a slacker
isn’t a thing to be proud of. I had only had s*x once, thanks
to Seun who took me clubbing then some chic agreed to get
down with me and at the end made me pay N4,000…That
wasn’t funny. I felt I needed to lay claim of my very own pet,
a decision I soon regret.
The following day I went to the canteen, but this time around
I went there late.
Unfortunately food had finished, but the good thing was that
Tope had time to spare. She was busy preparing to wash the
dishes and I didn’t hesitate to assist her.
She didn’t want me to get my hands dirty but I insisted. I
helped her in getting water and she was
thrilled that a corper would stoop so low helping
her with the dishes. Well, why wouldn’t I, itgranted me the
avenue to view her heavy kegs that
jiggled as she was washing the dishes. Suddenly her mother
appeared from a distance, Tope sighted her and she said to
“Please hide, don’t let her see you.”

I then hid behind the canteen and after about 15 minutes
she left the place. Tope then came to meet me and said.
“Sorry about it.”
I then said. “Its’s okay, no sweat. Your mom is strict right?”
She said. “No she’s not. I am preparing for JAMB exams and
seeing me with a guy would upset her”.
I then said to her. “Then why are you here working in the
canteen? You should be attending lessons now”. She said.

“My elder sister is not feeling too fine and she’s the one in
charge of the canteen. Yesterday was my first day here” I
asked her. “What course do you intend to study?” She said.
I said to her. “I finished with a first class in Chemical
Engineering. if you need any assistance I will be glad to help
She said. “Wow, that will be nice. I have a problem with
chemistry and physics. You must be a genius! ” I laughed
and said. “No I am not, I just love to read my books a lot. It
takes hard work and persistence to be successful.
My dad is a Professor and my mom is a Judge, they really
encouraged me”.
We finished cleaning up and I decided to walk her home
which she agreed. As we walked, we talked about our
families and she opened up about the challenges she faced
gaining admission, being the only child amongst her siblings
privileged to attend higher institution. I was so bent in
making her pass her JAMB and I promised her I would teach
her through.
I convinced her to tell her mom she needed to prepare for
her exams and that she won’t be able to continue with the
running of the canteen.
The mom eventually succumbed and she got a replacement.
I made an arrangement with Tope, for her to be coming to
my place 4:00pm Mondays to Fridays and 1:00pm on
Saturdays, which she agreed.
My intentions were sincere, but with a little thoughts of side
attractions. In spite of being attracted to her, I wanted her
more than anything to pass her JAMB exams this time

Her first day at my place was an amazing one. She brought
me rice, dodo and 3 pieces of meat. I was really touched
and I felt she truly cared for me. The most enthralling thing
she did again was, she washed all my dirty clothes, including
my boxers and she swept my room and arranged my stuffs.
No lady had done such to me except my mom. I was moved
by that and felt more obliged to her.

We couldn’t do any reading that day. So I walked her home
around 6:30pm. I got to my room and it looked quite
different. Neat and very organized. I laid on my neatly made
bed and I thought to myself. “Is it possible something real
can happen between Tope and I??” But I considered the
years she would spend in the University and all.
She came the following day. This time she wore a fitted
gown. I Knew I was going to be in trouble if I don’t seldom
caution myself. I then told her to list out the most difficult
topics she was facing. I put her through and she was quite
intelligent in grasping, I was really impressed by her keen
interest in understanding.
After studying she then looked at me and said. “How is your
girlfriend?” I laughed and said. “Tope I don’t have a
girlfriend.” She said. “I don’t believe you.” I then said to her.
“Tope, I am not lying to you. Girls don’t find me attractive,
it’s not that I am good looking. Even while in school, I never
had the chance to date any girl I admired.”
She said. “adeoluwa , I know you are special I saw it in your
eyes the first time we met at my mom’s canteen. You are a
special man.”

I was moved by what she said. No lady had ever said that
thing to me before. I began to feel for her and that was
when I started to really care for her. She looked at my feet
and said. “Aaah.. Adeoluwa. Look at your toe nails. Don’t you
cut them?”
I felt a bit embarra*sed and said. “No now… They are hard
and my nail cutter is missing. I will get another one in town.”
She then said. “Do you have a razor blade?
Let me help you cut it.”
I said. “No oo.. Please I don’t like using razor on me, it could
cut me.”
She then said. “Trust me.”
I got her the razor blade and she meticulously cut my toe
nails neatly. She then took a napkin soaked with water and
she cleaned my feet. No lady had shown me much
compassion and care.

Immediately I erased the lustful thoughts I had on her and I
decided to do everything to make her succeed in her JAMB
Our friendship grew and I found out how remarkable she
was. I began to love her but I fought really hard not to reveal
it to her. I respected her and I knew she was a good lady and
I didn’t want to start something I couldn’t finish. I was aware
we both had feelings for each other, but I was afraid it will
lead to nowhere and also I didn’t want to make a promise I
couldn’t fulfill. It was a tough decision for me, cause I had to
fight every temptation that came my way.
She was really improving in her preparations towards her
examination. She was able to solve all the difficult problems
she once faced and I was proud she was making a headway.
The JAMB exams came and she smashed it. She scored 250
and I bought her a wrist watch for doing so good.
It was friday night around 9:30pm. I heard a knock on the
door and it was Tope. I was really surprised seeing her there
and I said to her. “Why are you out this late?”
She said. “I told my mom I was going for Vigil.”
I then said. “Come in, you lied to your mom abi?” She
couldn’t answer me.
I made her noodles and she ate. We both laid down on the
bed, I knew what I feared the most was revealing its head. I
had just my boxers on and I don’t like sleeping with much
clothes on.
She then said. “Do you have water in the bathroom, I want
to shower.”
I then knew that night was going to be an intriguing one. I
said. “Yes there’s water in the bathroom. You can use this
towel it’s clean.” She took the towel and went into the
