His Winding Journey To Her Gorgeous Body.

 

For three years he pursued her. He called her even for reasons as lame as “Is the fresh air in your area fresh tonight?” she lives in Nsawam, but his feelings made the frequent journeys from Adenta feel like a stone throw. He did all he could to show how serious he was about her, but she wouldn’t budge.

“You guys are all the same” she’d say to herself “You move mountains and do anything just to get into a woman’s panties, then she becomes a nuisance after.”

So she threw him off, kept giving him funny excuses. Then out of the blue when she got in the mood she’d send him an “IMU” on whatsapp. Then he’d jack-up like a dog finally let outside two weeks after the start of the mating season. He’d resume calling frequently, making the pilgrimage and doing all those otoolege things. Then she’d throw him off, then the cycle continued.

She hardly returned his visits. She stretched him so much, making him ‘prove his love’ for much longer than it takes to get a diploma. Then one day she woke up and realized she was three years older.

“But Kobe, he cant be such a bad guy” she thought to herself “It’s been three years and it’s only recently that he’s slowed down for me. Maybe I should give him a chance. Maybe it can really work with him. 3 years, wow! He’s surprised me. Yes. I will give him a chance.”

So one Saturday in February this year, Christmas came early for Kobe; she called him out of the blue and asked “Hey, are you home? Wanted to come visit today.”

Kobe stuttered a little, then took the phone off his ear briefly to double-check if it was really Emefa. “Ummmmnnn…” he managed “Yess, sure. Hmmn, I’m come, ei home.”

[giggles] “Ok, cool, how do I get there?”

*       *      *

Two hours later she was knocking at his gate. He came to get her and they went inside. Niceties were exchanged and after beating around the bush forever, she came around to why she was really there.

“Kobe, I know I haven’t been fair to you. It’s been a bit since you told me how you felt about me.”

“A bit?”

“Okay, a bit…much longer. Point is, I was scared. Too many stories of guys just doing crazy things, getting to bed then disappearing.”

“O Em, like seriously?” he looked hurt and disappointed “You think all I wanted was your body? How can you even think that? For three years? Ahabah!”

“I knoowww” she cut in, drawing nearer to him, shutting him up with the fragrance of her hand cream. “I’m sorry, but you have to understand me, I was being careful. And if you look at it differently, you can see that it means there’s no way I’d ever cheat on you.”

Kobe leaned back; this was getting interesting. The prey was cuddling the hunter’s rifle. He acted hurt and a little aloof. “Hmm. I’m listening.”

“So I guess,” she stuttered. He knew exactly what she wanted to say but was deliberately making it difficult. It was so weird for her because she’d always been listening and had never been the one to say “So I guess, I guess what I’m saying is. Hmmp. We could give us a shot afterall.”

Kobe let a full minute pass. “I dunno o Em. I chased you so long, fought so hard, proved so much, waited so long, I’m just…just…”

“Just what?”

“I’m just…tired right now.”

“Like seriously?”

“You bet. You cant imagine what, how-“

“It’s okay Kobe. It’s okay. I know. So what are you saying?”

“I’m saying, that unless you’re ready to prove that you’re serious, we shouldn’t be having this conversation. You must be ready to prove to me that this isn’t you trying to string me along again.”

“Hmm.” She sighed smiling

“Show me that you’re not playing. Because I don’t think you even once considered that I may be vulnerable myself.”

They spoke some more and then he leaned in to kiss her. She responded and he started groping her. Then she pulled away and he just threw his hands in the air and fell back on the couch in frustration.

“This cant happen.” She explained weakly

“Fine, whatever.” He replied coldly “You obviously doubt me still. You still think I’m kidding. This’ exactly what I mean. Three years of your coldness, my continuous proofs of loving you, you still –“

She cut him off with a kiss, then she pulled back an inch, then he leaned in. It was all tongue and lips for a few minutes, then when he started groping again, she didn’t stop him. When he went further, pulling things down and off, she didn’t stop him, and in the time it would take to finish a bowl of fufu, they were both lying in bed, short of breath. They cuddled, she played with his funny chest hair then after a while, she left, he went to see her off.

mistake? As she got in that taxi and it started to move away, she saw him smiling and a nagging voice uttered its first words…. “What if you’re right? What if your body is really all he wanted?”

When she got home, she called me.

“Ben, I just did something, and I’m not sure if I’ll regret it.”

“Emefa? Calm down, what’s it?”

She told me what I just told you.

I was quiet for a while and I told her there were only three ways I could see this going. But since I’m already close to the 1,000 word limit I hardly cross, let me finish this up in the very next post ok? But fam, I promise, this isn’t fiction. The girl is real, the guy is real, the story is real.

But let’s do this; tell me what you think will happen. Cant wait to see. Tell me.

    Its funny how people’s stories reach out to us and by God’s grace we learn from them. As a woman in my late 20s, that pressure is there to use sex to see if the guy really means what he says. But by His grace my faith has been sustained. Thanks Ben. You’re really touching lives.

    Really, it should be a blogging crime to leave ppl in such suspense…. Methinks he wasn’t put off by her 3yr rollercoaster friendship cos she wasn’t his only ‘ ride’…. There’s probably a 3rd person in the picture.

    Trust your instinct. The guy would still sing his doubts about Em’s feelings. Em then finds out Prince Charming is involved with someone.
