The Story Of My Relationship (chapter 8)

We went to the Youth Conference in Abuja, but before then, she was planning to stay at Gwagwalada, Abuja, with her relatives after the camp, and that was a huge upset for me.

Since we started dating, we haven't been divided by states before, and that would be my first. So, you can tell that it wasn't easy at all. I fought hard, I tried to convince her not to go, I did all I could, but in the end, I could tell she really wanted to go visit her relatives, and one thing that broke my heart was that she would definitely stay there for at least a long period of time because we were in the month of July and that could mean she could stay till the end of the year.

Imagine not seeing Bella for such a long period of time. And then, finally, I decided to let her go, it was what she wanted, and I had no right to deny her that. Then suddenly, my younger brother came and met me in the night, and we knew he was coming from Bella's house, and that was the night before our journey to Abuja. He said Bella had decided not to go to the camp, but she would go to her relatives in Abuja. I became mad, it got me really hard, and that was because the camping would be my chance to see her for at least four consecutive days before the camp was over and subsequently before she visited her people.

It was night, maybe around 9 or 10 pm. I wrote a letter with details of how I felt concerning the journey and why she should follow us to the camp. I asked my brother to follow me to her house that night, but he would be the one to enter and secretly give her the letter because I dared not enter, not even at that time of the night. We went and stood at the gate. The compound gate was locked, and we were not having airtime on our phones.

We couldn't enter, and it was painful. We went back home and then the next morning, after packing my bags and setting for the journey, I sent my brother the letter, and I called her to meet me at her junction because my brother said she still didn't want to go, and I told him I need just one chance with her, and she will agree, he laughed, but I was sure. She met me at the junction, and we talked, and then she still said she didn't know. I left feeling bitter, bad, destroyed, mad, angry, whatever adjective you can use.

I took the bike and then left for the place of meeting for the youths where the bus would pick us up, and then suddenly my phone rang. I picked up the call and beheld it; it was Bella. "Babe, can I still come, or have you guys gone?" That question brought me back to life. I told her to come; we were still there and that she should take the bike and I would pay. My happiness came back. I felt Joy again. My teeth were outside, laughing as if I was a child. I was so happy.

Finally, she came, and then we were set to move. We got to the camp, and we were so close, doing things together, loving each other as best as we could, as if that was the last time we would ever see each other again. People were looking at us, and we could tell they wanted to know if we were married, and that was because of how close we were at that moment. She kept reassuring me that she would come back, and I took that for solace.

The camp was over, and we were on separate buses back to Jos, but I knew she would stop on the way because she wasn't going back to Jos with us. That was the most painful moment for me because I couldn't give her a goodbye hug. I saw her bus stop, she dropped down with her bags and then my bus passed her. I kept turning back to see her, and she also was looking at my bus. I bend my head, and tears come down my eyes. It was sad.😭😭
