“Offcourse, it’s my utmost priority to make you happy. You are my girl now and I don’t have any reason not to do whatever that will make you happy”
“Are you sure?” I asked
“Yes, what do you want? Just name it. I’m willing to do anything for you. Just name it”
“I don’t think what I need now is something that is within your reach. Just forget it”
“I said, name it.”
“It has to do with money oo… So, it would be best you don’t stress yourself with my burden”
“Hmm…ok.” he said and then disconnected the call.
He was easily predictable. I knew he was going to do something just to convince me that, he came for real.
Minutes after he disconnected the call, I saw an alert of 1 million naira.
Things desperation would make people do. In less than 24 hours, he already spent 1.3million on a girl he just met.
No be juju be dat?
His behaviour started irritating me to the point I couldn’t call back to thank him.
He got tired of waiting and decided to call to find out if I saw the money or not.
“Yes, I was about calling you before your call came in. Do you really mean to send the money to me or was it a mistake?” I pretended as if I wasn’t aware of his game plan
“The money is for you and there are more where that came from, all you need is, be my girl, satisfy all my needs and see your life filled with beauties and riches.”
Only God knows how many girls he has useless their lives.
So, I saw myself as the perfect revenge for what he did to them.
I pretended to be excited, but not the level he expected.
He noticed my faint cold attitude and asked if I wasn’t happy with the money.
“Santos, when I told you that, I wasn’t able to start up the business because of lack of fund, I wasn’t talking about chicken money, I was talking about huge money.”
“Like how much?”
“5.5 million naira, but I have been able to raise 1m, and adding the one you just sent, I’ve gotten 2m. So it’s remaining 3.5 to complete it”
I said 3.5m because I knew he can afford it.
“Wooow..that’s quite a lot. Are sure of what you are saying? Because it’s quite huge to start up that kind of business.”
“I’m not looking at a low budget business and besides, I’m not even asking you to give me the money” I said, acting not to be desperately in need of his money.
“Alright….just give me from now till evening, let me see what I can do” he said, trying to hide his emotion.
I knew he was a bit upset with the way I was driving him, but he had to act calm so that I don’t suspect what he was upto.
And that nudged my brain to be smarter so that, I don’t end up, becoming his prey. Guys like that, don’t like it when their prey ride them like that.
Eating his money wasn’t even close to what I did to him. Next time, he will think twice before joining such business.
