Chidimma my baby – episode 2 by Ngozi Lovelyn
Months after I travelled to US, things were not so easy as I expected, but I was hoping on God that he will smile on me with his favour and prosperity.
It affected my communication with Chidimma but I believed she was a good girl and will always wait for me.
“Good thing I left her a virgin, that will be my confirmation she didn’t cheat on me and mess herself around” this was the thought I used to hold my self together and remained focused on my goals.
3 years had passed, things were becoming to come in place and my Chidimma was still waiting for me.
She just gained admission to the university. She sat for Jamb twice and got lucky on the third sitting.
Yes, I figured that, everything was still in place because I calculated that, by the time she will be through with school, I must have made it and returned to Nigeria and marry her.
5 years later, we were still going, but this time, a new development was beginning to take place.
She was beginning to bomber me with questions on what I really want with her.
I reiterated what has been my stand on her.
I remembered her that night remaining quiet after I assured her what my intentions were towards her.
I expected her to say or ask me something like, when I will be returning to Nigeria, but she didn’t say anything of such. The call was on for like 2 minutes, but she still didn’t say a word again. We maintained silence.
I felt this negative thoughts whooshing my heart.
I called her and she hummed.
My first question was, is she still a virgin.
And she said, I shouldn’t be asking her such questions and that I don’t have any right to ask her such question since I wasn’t in Nigeria.
I know I tried within my capability to ensure she doesn’t lack a thing. I tried within my power to make sure she doesn’t have any reason to give her self to another man or be messing around.
I provided her needs, believing in God to be ready for her once she is done with school.
To be honest, I wasn’t expecting that response she gave me that night.
I was beginning to feel scared that I was about loosing my special girl, but I held myself together. I love her so much, more than anything in life. Imagining a life without her is like imagining a life without air.
So I repeated the question again, this time, she said, she was having head ache and that I should call her back when I have a reasonable question to ask.
I was shocked.. I haven’t felt her in that mood before…
