CAMPUS DILEMMA SEASON 1 EPISODE 4
“Hi guys” I greeted as I got to them. Shania turned and
heaved that kind of thank God sigh also hugging me at
the same time. The dude just stood there looking at us.
I was surprised at her action with the whole hugging
thing. I hailed the dude again stretching out my hand
for a handshake which he reciprocated
“Sorry bro, I guess she is your babe” he said. Before I
could utter any response, Shania took over and started
with intro 101.
“Stranger meet my boyfriend and sweetheart meet mr
stranger’ she said flashing a set of white teeth with a
beautiful smile to the dude.
“Guy you must be a very lucky……….” The dude started
to say before Shania cut him off.
“Yea, he knows he is lucky and if you don’t mind we
will like to go now” she said pulling my hand as she
walked away. I looked at the dude and saw
embarrassment written all over him. I drew Shania
back gently for a proper introduction
“My guy am Purity and she is Shania. Don’t mind her,
she is my friend and not the other way round” I said to
“I’m Dave”, he said stretching out his hands once
again, “and nice to meet you two.” he continued.
Shania smiled and apologized for her rude behavior.
“Am actually going to have some drink inside, hope you
guys don’t mind if we share a table” he said looking at
“It would have been a pleasure, but we ain’t going in
(Shania looked at me). But if you don’t mind, let’s do
this another day. I said to the guy.
“No probs, next time then” he said handing out a
complimentary card to me. He took my contact before
we parted. I hailed a cab with Shania looking strangely
at me. I told the cab man to drop us at Chitis.
We got to Chitis and coincidentally the table I occupied
with Cindy on Saturday was empty. I led Shania to the
table and we settled at the table placing our orders
when the waiter arrived.
“So why did you change the venue all of a sudden?” she
“Nothing much, just didn’t want to stay there anymore”
I replied looking away.
She laughed before asking “Or you think I have got
something up my sleeves”
“Do you?” I asked looking her in the eye balls. She
stared at me without saying anything before the waiter
arrived with our order. She made to pay the bill but I refused.
“This meeting was my idea so I got the bill.” She said
trying to persuade me to allow her pay the bill.
“This meeting might be your idea, but the time and
venue was mine so allow me to do what I have got to
do.” I said and paid the waiter and she left. I served her
drink and did same to myself. I took a bite from the
meatpie before asking her.
“So do you recognize this table?
“Yea I do, that was where you sat and here was the girl
you came with” she replied giving me the ‘you think I
don’t know why you brought me here’ smile.
I still had that doubt that she is a bait. But on the other
hand I asked myself. “Why will Cindy try to set me up?”
it’s not like we are dating already. I decided to keep
Cindy away for the time being.
“So to what do I owe this whole thing” I asked her.
“Nothing much” she said and continued. “Just want to
be your friend. Well the truth is listening to you, how you listened to the girl while she talked, how you
talked, laughed and your calmness and composure, I
couldn’t help but get attracted to you”
With her boldness I felt more awkward like something
was definitely fishy.
“Wow! All this for me” I said while we both laughed.
“Thanks Shania, but I didn’t seem to notice you
yesterday. Who did you come with and were where you
seated?” I asked.
“I came with myself and I was seated right behind you”
she replied smiling.
“Well the girl I came with is my girlfriend” I said looking
She laughed before saying “Dude am no kid. And I
know first date when I see one, so please don’t play
she is my girlfriend card with me.”
Shania looks free spirited and straight forward. I don’t
know what has been happening between me and
beautiful girls. First was Oge, then Precious, now its
Cindy and Shania. Shania is not just beautiful and
endowed, she smells stinking rich. Yes rich but very
humble. She was in English department, 3rd year. As
we left the café I said to her.
“Shania, I like your personality and from now I think we
are friends already. But I don’t think we can go beyond
that. Am trying to see if I can build something with
Cindy, the girl you saw me with yesterday.”
She heaved a sigh before she said “Purity you know
“What? Tell me” I replied.
“Stop getting me attracted to you with your sincerity.
Keep up with that, and you will have more of me
coming your way” she said and we both laughed.
“You are funny and believe me, I feel honored that a
beauty like you wants to be my friend. Truth be told, I
can’t walk up to you on a normal day and ask you out”
I said as we waited for a cab.
“Why?” she asked looking surprised.
“Who wan collect slap” I replied as we both laughed.
“Maybe from this you can see how lonely I am. Purity
do you know that I don’t get up to 3 guys asking me out
in one month, and when I do, it will be those lusting
after my body or other things.” She said with pain
showing in her voice.
