My best friend’s love story that I hate – part 2
Confession with Ngozi Lovelyn
She couldn’t stop talking about this new guy she met.
She kept checking her phone, expecting his call. And she was beginning to look worried that, he may not call.
I checked the time, it was 8:30 and he hasn’t called her. He promised to give her a call and it was getting late in the night and he hasn’t called and I felt my heart feeling happy, that what I said was about to happen. But I decided to keep shut, so that she doesn’t think that, I was feeling jealous.
“You have dated enough rich guys, can you tell me what it feels like to date one?” she asked
“You are my friend, I don’t hide anything from you. All my experience with them is just like a movie playing in front of you. They are all cheat and heart breakers. They are full of themselves and don’t have any human sympathy. They don’t think twice before smashing your heart, despite making promises to love you forever.” I kept one, encountering my experience with the rich guys I’ve dated.
I am a girl who detest poor guys a lot.
When you approach me as a guy, I must first weigh you, to make sure you fit into the class of guys I roll with, otherwise, nothing for you and I.
So I continued inciting her to kill her mind from the new guy, to avoid getting her heart broken again.
“But to be honest, whether rich or poor, I really don’t mind, what I need is a man who will love me with all his being. I just want true love”
“And this new guy is definitely not going to be the one, you don’t fit into his class.”
I wanted to tell her that, she is too short and below his standard, but I decided to withdraw it, to avoid hurting her feelings.
“What if I should call him?” she asked and I was stunned.
“Does it mean, you haven’t been listening to the words I’ve been saying?”
“I don’t know why I’m feeling this way, but my guts keep hinting me that this guy is going to mean a lot to me”
“You know what? Call him.. I’m trying to save your heart from being in trouble again and you are choosing to jump into fire. Why am I even stopping you? Call him. Listen, dating rich guys has never worked for me, so what makes you think you are going to be any different?”
“Babe calm down…. I know you are looking out for me, but you know I have been lonely since.. You should wish me well and not trying to bitter my heart against him. He may be different from the ones you’ve dated… You should be wishing me luck naa….haba”
“Ooo…I have heard you…. You said you want to call him, you can go ahead” I said and pinched myself for even advising her not to.
One thing I have learnt from dating rich guys is that, they hate desperate women.
They tend to despise desperate women a lot. When they notice you are being desperate, they will run off from you, because they will believe you are only after their money and not them. I then started urging her to call him.
“Yes, you are right. He maybe different from others, you can call him.”
But she was hesitant.
“He promised to call me, so let me wait for him. If he doesn’t, then I will forget about him. I really need to be careful this time. I don’t want another sad episode” she said and started pressing her phone, while I continued praying in my heart that he doesn’t call.
But to tell you the truth, I really don’t know why I was feeling that way for my friend.
I should be happy for her, but my heart was bitter. That guy was supposed to be for me. He was my type of guy, I was sad when he went for her. I am, in every aspect more beautiful than her and no rich guy has ever asked her out, but that afternoon, I felt a slap on my face that a handsome rich guy like that could go for someone like her.
But I was happy that the new thing she was feeling won’t lead to anywhere, because it was getting late and h hasn’t called………But my little happiness shattered after her phone started ringing and it was him.
She picked immediately and I heard the guy apologising, saying that he was caught up in something. He also asked how she was doing and what she ate for the night.
I saw the joy displaying all over her face, answering his call.
But again, my heart felt happy that, it was just a phase. That once he gets what he was eyeing from her body, he will zoom off, like the rest of them.
So I forced myself to remove my mind from them and concentrate on how he will shatter her heart after he must have used and dumped her….
But that never happened.
Their relationship was getting even more stronger.
My jealous tendency went out of control after she called me one afternoon, screaming and shouting that he proposed to her.
She snapped the finger, with the beautiful engagement ring and sent to me on WhatsApp.
I was shocked. My mouth refused to shut from the shock. I couldn’t believe it.
To tell you the truth ma, I tried all my best, controlling my heart to stop this furious envy that was gaining control of my heart, but I felt it growing even stronger……she was my best friend, I should have controlled it.
