When you decide to live the life of lies, have all the assurance that it’s exactly what life will be bringing to you, you might not know it, but it’s the reality.
Tolu, a young vibrant university graduate who survived the harshness of his school days with the help of series of sugar mummies he kept. When he graduated newly, the desire to struggle to make ends meet was far from crossing his mind. His wish was to hook up with a rich desperate lady who will take care of his bills and channel him into marriage, but that was far from coming. He tried fashioning his way into the lives of some rich single ladies he came across with, but none was ready to give him a chance into her live. And this got him wondering why he was so difficult to get a single desperate lady who will be ready to see life exactly the way he wished. He then decided to talk to his friend, Tino about it.
“I thought they are “desperate” for marriage, but why are they not ready to hook up with a serious guy like me? Getting a Sugar Mummy is just like a flip of finger to me, but why are these single desperate ladies proving so stubborn to get? Please Tino, can you tell me what is wrong with them?”
Looking at how worried Tolu looked, Tino burst into laughter, while staring at him.
“Tino, I am serious here. I am so serious, this is getting me confused”
“Tolu, we are through with serving our father’s land. We are through with the “National Youth Service Corp”, you can no longer rely on the allawee (Nickname for the Federal Government Allowance paid to Youth Corp members, the Nigerian university graduates serving the nation). You are now on your own, Tolu. It’s time you hustle and make money.”
“Yes Tino, what I am doing is still part of hustling. The economy is hard, I don’t have strength to wait for that long before I can finally make it. Please, I am still waiting for your answer, tell me, what do you think is the reason behind the series of rejection I have been receiving from them, I mean the desperate chics?”
“But Tolu, you are so funny ooo. You are hustling for an already made babe but you don’t even know the tricks on how to go about it, you amuse me, seriously”
“Tino, are you now insulting me because I asked you a simple question?” Tolu asked, looking playfully angry
“No Tolu. Ok, let me give you the reason. You see, girls have gotten wise this days. They know how to differentiate a gold digger from a real man. You are using the same style you use in chasing after married women to seek out for them. The difference between Married and Single ladies is that, the married ones are ready to spend, they only thing they want from you is to give them what they want, but this rich single ladies desire you to belong in the same category as them. At least, you should belong in their category and also have something to offer before they can even listen to you, so that they won’t see you as a gold digger. So you now see the difference?”
Tolu who immediately understood what Tino said, jumped up from his seat, saying; “Off course! Off course Tino, you are so right, Tino. Oh my world! How come I did not think of this before? This is the reason they have not been able to look at me and let alone listening to me. Tino, I have met countless of them, but the disgusting looks they rain on me is something else. Damn it! But since this is exactly what they want, I am going go give it to them”
“Tolu, I am still advising you, you won’t gain anything by living this kind of life. You began depending on sugar mummies for survival when you were in school, and now, you have become so lazy that you can no longer hustle genuinely as a real man. Go and look for a job like other men do and stop depending on women?”
“Tino, I won’t lie to you, I am now addicted to their money. I think it’s my destiny.”
“Taa, get away you. How can you say it’s your destiny?”
“Tino, please what we should be discussing about now is how to find a rich girl?”
“Tolu, you are not serious. Please I’m going inside to take my bath, while you continue dwelling in your fantasy” Tino said, getting up from where he was sitting.
After Tino left, Tolu began scouring for an idea….
He then remembered his friend, Gilbert.
“Yes, Gilbert, he is rich, but courtesy of his brother who is based in Malaysia. I can flaunt his cars, his house as mine and woo any girl I want. If I have known that this is what they want, I would have done it a long time ago. But the issue now is, will Gilbert accept to help me? Tolu, there is no need thinking, you have to make a move first. But I just hope he agrees”
So after relaying his wish to Gilbert, at first he declined to help him, but when Tolu promised to settle him, he then decided to give him a listening ear.
“Tolu, you know it’s my brother’s house and the cars also belong to him?”
“Yes I know, but when does he normally enter the country?” Tolu asked
“Hmm, just once in every 6 months, he is not married yet, so he doesn’t have much thing bringing him into the country.” Gilbert said
“But Gilbert, your brother has already made you rich, why are you still doing ” Yahoo Yahoo business? And the money you are getting from there is already enough, why do you still want me to be paying you for using your brother’s house and his cars?”
His question made Gilbert laughed softly and he said: “Tolu, nothing is free in this world. So you think that the cars and the house are the only thing you will be using? Don’t you know that I will be lending you my designer cloths as well? You have to appear rich for them to have the conviction that you are well to do. You don’t have to worry, I know of a night club in Abuja here where you can meet rich and desperate ladies who will not even mind spending huge sums of money for you to have them as a wife”
“Please where and when are we going? I can’t just wait Gilbert, I am so desperate.” Tolu asked
“Calm down Tolu, you will get to meet them soon” Gilbert said
Stephanie, a young graduate, a professional Runs Girl who had joined her friends in Abuja.
She went there to continue with her hustling business..
She also see life in the same perception as Tolu. They don’t believe in genuine aspect of life. She wants to survive through shortcut means. She spent her university days, dwelling on sugar daddies for survival. And another thing she had in common with Tolu was “lies”. They were skilled in lying their way through. They will make you believe that a black colour has suddenly turned to white. And while looking at it, you will easily believe that the colour is purely white. Steph made it clear to her friends that she had graduated, that her main reason of coming to Abuja was to hook up with a rich guy who would take her to the alter.
She also believed that, rich guys only go for rich girls, and won’t mingle with poor girls. She had the notion that they see them as “gold diggers”, that’s why they go for their likes.
They both happened to be present at the night club Gilbert took Tolu to.
And these fake duos met each other, with Tolu lying skillfully, making Steph believed he was a multi millionaire business man, while Steph lied as well that she was a rich entrepreneur.
They never knew that they both came from a very poor background.
We have gotten a grips of what the story is talking about, now the main gist begins tomorrow…….
Seriously, I just can’t wait.
