“maybe it’s a bad idea after all. I just disgraced myself, didn’t i??” she sadly asked. I smiled reassuredly, caressing her hand.

“you like me. I like you. I guess it will be bad if we fail to give it a trial” i said sweetly. She rolled her eyes and said nothing.

I couldn’t believe the words that came out from my mouth were mine.
“i really havn’t changed” i said to myself with a calm smile.

“are you sure of what you just said?” she asked with eyes beeming with smiles. I breathed deeply and hugged her.

“of course my dear, but we really have to take things slow” i whispered in her ear.

“take things slow, like no sex?” she asked curiously. I drew back her head, stared into her eyes and nodded in affirmative.

“i can’t believe this is coming from a guy. No sex hmmm” she laughed, pinching me in the process.

We finally slept holding each other. Such a peaceful and wonderful night it was. Deep down i somehow wished Adaora was with me.

We spent two days together before parting ways on the third day. I headed back to Enugu while she travelled back to her school. Perhaps if mum hadn’t called me on the second day to ask what was keeping me from returning home, i might have stayed a bit longer with her.
She really wasn’t happy we were parting so quickly. To her it was the end. She felt we won’t be seeing each other again.

“Val i hope this isn’t the end?. I really love you” she cried as i dropped her at Okigwe junction. I perfectly understood her fears. Deep down i shared the same sentiment with her, but i acted cool, smiled, kissed and reassured her once again that our affair would last a lifetime.

Hmmmm, finally my life as a corper has come to an end. A new era opened. How will it all end.
Will Adaora return to the country for my sake?. Will things get better between Tessy and i?. How about the new girl {The twin}?. Hmmm too many questions.

Watch out for the concluding part of my story titled

To be continued.
