Best Man Duty #16

Read Episodes 1 – 15 of Best Man Duty “Dot, we’re at the stage of decision making.  It used to be another set of people, now its a different set entirely” I sighed “Even Farouk, the useless fat headed Farouk, is almost getting married. All we do is get a crush on someone, or have feelings for someone who’s taken, or love someone who is not ready” I sighed again, and turned to my left side to pick my phone from the bed post. “We should do and choose one of these babes. Now Cleo has brought you back in, Lara is staying in touch but Cynthia isn’t never gon’ be our own permanently” I smiled. “You’re crazy man. So she can hold a temporary slot abi? Okay nah, what about Queen o?” “That’s the chief mumu of your harem mister. Has you at her fingertips yet she’s doing like…

Previously on Best Man Duty Driving on the ever busy, pothole riddled Lagos Ibadan expressway, my mind wandered in different directions.  I swore under my breath with each pothole I successfully ‘overcome’.  I donated a curse for each leader who refused to do what they should. Maybe I was cranky, maybe I was angry, maybe I was pissed, maybe I was frustrated, maybe… I had not felt that vexed with everything in a while. The universe was not working in my favour as touching my emotional issues. Why else would Cynthia tell me unequivocally that she was in love with someone else after all of our flirting and ‘encounters’? Why would Queen refuse to see reason and let us come together as a unit? I admit that I have been wrong at one time or the other. I admit that I did not concentrate fully. I admit that I…

Leave that side and let’s talk what I’m asking”…

Best Man Duty #13

Read previous episodes of Best Man Duty Accuracy with time was needed in my trip to Port Harcourt and I had that on my side. There has to be something good about Cynthia as all that has to do with her always falls into place. I had told Sam that Cynthia would meet me at the airport but there was a change. The client I was to meet offered to send me a pick up vehicle owing to the fact that he needed to get things sorted fast and fly top Abuja for another meeting. I had no choice but to go with his arrangement, and with that went all my rehearsed airport reunion with Cynthia. “Jus lemme know how to hook up wif u when you’re done” I grinned again. She would not even complain that I informed her late about the change. Of course, maybe I had been…

Best Man Duty #12

Previous episodes of Best Man Duty Time was favourable when I locked eyes with Cynthia at the wedding reception. It however stopped being my friend when she came back to sit and chat with me. I really cannot remember how long ago I thoroughly enjoyed time with someone; I mean time enough to shut the whole world out. As I reminisced on the outing, and our first serious interaction after Sam’s wedding, I knew I had been struck by an arrow. We went straight to be with The Clan at The Meeting Point for the rest of that Saturday evening. The boys noticed my unusual quiet and asked to know what was going on. The idiot that knew just told them “he’s tired, emotionally and mentally” and his fellow fools started laughing. I did not bother to dignify them with any response. I just continued with my chicken and chips…

Best Man Duty #11

Catch up on Best Man Duty here Going back to The Meeting Point was not the best thing to do. Going home would get me into another round of thoughts. I was at that time driving past an area that held loads of memory for me. There was the case of Dele’s residence that used to be the slaughter slab for all of The Clan’s p-setting. Coded babes found themselves gracing the Maracana Stadium in the big head’s bedroom. Dele is that member of The Clan whose womanizing is legendary. He had different ‘no strings attached’ and recruited more without fear. Undergrads, graduates, single mothers, desperate babes and all. He even had a police officer that I always called ‘Police girl’. There was the nurse, the bank worker, the lawyer and the civil servant. We would shout on him and call him names but he would say “what makes y’all…

Best Man Duty #10

Read all episodes of Best Man Duty “Your dream will finally come true over the weekend handsome. I’m due in your city this weekend for the wedding I told you about” I had mixed feelings as I read that early morning message on my phone. As excited as I was with the possibility of spending time with Cynthia as normal human beings, not that Best Man and Chief Bridesmaid nonsense, Queen had the weekend booked for her already. I liked how the previous day had ended; it was every man’s dream: Cynthia prayed for me, I got a deal wrapped and I made peace with le boo. It had been a while before then that things had fallen into place for me like that. Sam also had good news for me as per our partnership. At that point in time, I knew the world was made for me alone. “You…

Best Man Duty #9

Catch up on Best Man Duty here “Samo see my babe, abi no be Queen be that ni?” I was all shades of confused, angry, pissed and what have you. I was pointing my index finger in her direction, as if to have a scalpel emerge from the finger from where I was to cut the foolish guy that she gave a full hug. Sam was shaking his head, his facial features unreadable. “Nna na wa o, so Queen don comot for gear”. He shook his head, took my hand and dragged me towards The Clan. “Where you dey drag me go? Are you crazy?” It was becoming a scene already as two scantily dressed girls I suspected to be undergrads in the city university trained their eyes on us. Maybe they thought I was drunk. I took it out on them first. “Wetin? What the eff are you staring…

Best Man Duty #8

Don’t miss older episodes of Best Man Duty. Catch up here Tiredness washed over me immediately I returned from going to get myself a glass of water. If I would make that mistake, it definitely should not have been to Queen who at that point was like a tick infested dog that would charge at anything that got on its wrong side. The phone was blinking, and I knew it was no email or any other notification apart from something on my blackberry messenger. “Dot you don become feeble o. Na Queen dey make you shake so? You own don be” That was my inner man slating me big time. I took whatever he was saying to mean that I had comfortably handed over my mumu button to Queen to do with it as she pleases. Trying to prove to myself that that was not the case, I picked…
