Aunty, you can transfer #8,000 instead of #10,000 but I’m not using that account number again, let me quickly get you the new account number. As the make-up artist left to get the account number, I was just wondering why I came here in the first place, #8,000 is a lot of money for me right now. My friend, Yemisi, offered to help me with it. I refused because I wanted to look bomb for this first date I’m going to, so I cannot even complain to anybody.
God, please let this man I’m going to meet not disappoint me, even if he is just half of what he has portrayed on social media, I really wouldn’t mind. The dress I’m wearing is #12,000, I didn’t buy it exactly for this date sha, I bought it for my birthday last year plus the wig I’m wearing too. So everybody should just have sense on this date o, I have spent a lot of money and I really hope this guy is it for me. I would appreciate a serious relationship right now.
As my uber entered the street of the restaurant, I called him to confirm if he was already at the restaurant, he said he has been there for the last 10 mins. We agreed to meet by 7pm and it’s 7:17pm, so uncle is time-conscious, that’s a check for him, he has probably learnt how to win a girl. I caught a glimpse of myself in the glass-door as I walked in, I was impressed with what I saw, your baby girl was looking really good!
He was already standing by the time I had entered, I didn’t have to scan thhrough to look for him because the restaurant was a big one. He was looking so fine and sharp, he was looking like hot chocolate, I just want to lick his face. He has another check for good-looking, let’s see if he will have sense. He said I was really looking good, and my make-up was on point. I was so proud of myself, then he said I will be a good make-up artist because my face was always matching my neck, even on Instagram pictures. I was just smiling like a fool, I’m still terrible with eyebrows sef.
I quickly changed the direction of the talk, before I will have to obviously lie about ordinary make-up. I asked how his day was, and that was the first mistake I made that night. He just started going on and on about work for about 20 mins, it was when the waiter came to ask for orders he remembered to shut up and asked what I wanted. After the waiter brought our orders, the evening continued smoothly till I had to use the restroom.
I was coming out of the restroom when I saw one of my course-mates in school who was working as a waiter in the same restaurant, i didn’t even know she was working here. We hugged and shouted because it’s been a while we saw each other, she asked who I came with to the restaurant. I said I came with a guy called Victor, she was like it better not be their regular customer Victor. I said she should describe their regular Victor, she said “he is tall, not too dark, he looks like all those guys you always you want to lick”.
I remembered when I was talking with Victor earlier, he mentioned this was the first time he was visiting the restaurant in months. My course-mate then said she really hoped I don’t plan to date him, because he changes girls like clothes. She said he brings different girls eveerytime to the restaurant, and that is why he is really popular among the waiters here. I didn’t know if I should believe her or not, but she really doesn’t have any reason to lie to me.
I was not even interested in any drama right now, I just need to get out of here jare. I told my course-mate to please just come spill a drink on me by mistake, so I’ll just have to leave immediately. It might sound funny, but that was the best excuse I could come up with. She agreed to come spill a drink on me, but I’ll pay for the drink o. We exchanged numbers so we can catch up later. As I walked back to my table, I saw uncle flirting with another waiting. Please don’t even ask me how I knew he was flirting.
The drama came out well, she spilled a drink on me by “accident”, I screamed and said I wanted to go home. As we were leaving, one guy that was coming in surprisingly asked Victor if he was coming to the restaurant for their normal weekly stuff, he said he will try. We looked at each other, then he knew I knew he lied about not visting the restaurant in months. But why did he have to lie in the first place? that’s something I’ll probably never know because I deleted his number almost immediately.
My friend, Yemisi, did not let me hear the end of it. She said if I had let her do my make-up, I wouldn’t have spent so much money because uber fee will have equaled the food I ate. What pained me most is I already imagined how his chocolate looking face would have been within my reach anytime and anywhere, very sad something. Yemisi asked when next I’ll be going for another first date, I just looked at her like there was something really wrong with her.
