The Winner Takes It All
FINALLY! Tunji had admitted he was still in love with me! I was excited and worried at the same time.
Excited because there was hope for us. Worried because I didn’t understand what he meant by “… and there is nothing ic an do about it now ”.
He sighed and then spoke:
“The minute those words came out of my mouth, i k new you’ d make me regret them ”.
“I only asked a simple question ”. I said.
Simple? nothing is simple with you! you are so persistent with your drama that half the time, iamju st trying to keep up with you! let’ s focus on why you came here and forget what is aid ”. Tunji suggested. How a mi supposed to forget what you just said?i have spent the last couple of months waiting to hear those words”! I exclaimed in frustration.
“Ade sew a,i am dangerously close to walking out on you. Choose one, we discuss chi gozie and you leave or we discuss what is aid and you leave ”. He said.
I knew what he was doing! He was once again trying to see if I would choose us over Chigozie! Why was he obsessed? I was tired of trying to explain to him that I had absolutely no intentions of speaking to Chigozie again once we cleared his name.
“C hi gozie’ s issue has nothing to do with what you just admittedtome”! I argued. “Of course it has everything to do with it! if not for him we wouldn’ t be here! we would have been celebrating our sixth month anniversary today the 30 th, if not for him”! Tunji was now raising his voice and I could tell he was getting very upset again. “I can’ t choose one tunji.iwantu st odo right by Chi gozie and id on’ t want to lose you ”. I admitted to him. Hoping he would soften up a little.
“We ll then,i believe you leave with neither. you won the first round an di get to win this round and this timed arling, the winner takes it all ”! TO BE CONTINUED
