Scrolling down through his phone, this
particular contact caught his attention. He
paused a bit and had an urge to call the
number. With his thumb placed on the green
button of his phone, two unseen forces were
battling inside of him, the first was the voice
telling him to call while the second voice kept
on shouting “don’t call”. He stared at the
number for a while and decided to scroll down.
Having suppressed the urge of wanting to call
the number, the second voice now became
” Why do you want to call her? You know
nothing will come out of the call rather you will
end up feeling bad again”
Just then the first voice crept in “you never can
tell, things might not be as it seems, just dial
the number, for all you know it might not even
“Why are you being stupid, thought you have
forgotten about her, or were you not being
sincere to yourself when u said that? The
second voice came shouting.
“All I know is that there is no harm in trying, at
least to confirm things yourself and not based
on hear say” the first voice chipped in it’s quiet
“For all I care, what is so special about this girl
self, what does she have that others doesn’t
have or are you just being unnecessarily stupid.
Thought it was a mere crush like others, the
second voice was becoming more louder than a
speaker and would want to be seen physically.
“You know it’s not just a mere crush no matter
how you try to make it look so. You know she
is not like others. She is special that’s the final
and unclothed truth, first voice whispered.
“Well if you want to call fine but”…………………… the
second voice submitted .
“Yes, just make the call” came the first voice in
a more louder tune.
Val stretched his left hand and dragged his
phone from under his pillow, scrolled down to
the number and pressed the call button. He
waited for a while before he pressed the speak
Tuuuuuu! Tuuuuuuu! Came the sound which
was a sign that it was connecting. It rang for a
while and stopped. He tried again for the
second time but the phone was not answered.
He looked at the screen of the phone for a while
and just then came the second voice came
“Mumu! Shebi I told you not to call her, now
see what a fool you have made of yourself.
Don’t you know she might be with her
boyfriend and they will be laughing at you now.
Sometimes I wonder if you are a human. Don’t
call, don’t call and you insisted on calling, now
you have called, shebi you are happy now
“See don’t worry, she might be in class or even
sleeping, or maybe she left her phone in her
room to get something outside, you never can
tell” came the first voice in a calm and
“Mtcheeewww!! Which kind class be that wey
she no go fit answer or busy the call. Or if na
sleep maybe say she don die for the sleep na
em make she no pick am, monkey” the second
voice kept cursing.
“Just don’t worry, she will see your missed call
and call you back” the first voice comforted.
“If I hear say she no hold that phone for hand
when you dey call her, make I hear say she call
you back, no be only call you back na to call
you front self oloshi” came the second voice
laughing this time.
Feeling very bad and uncomfortable, Val
dropped the phone on his bed and was about
moving outside when the phone started to ring.
His heart skipped a bit as he turned and rushed
back to his bed.
He picked the phone up and to his greatest
disappointment it was Uzo that was calling him.
He hesitated a bit before answering the call.
“Guy how far na?” came Uzo’s voice from the
other end of the phone.
“I dey,” Val replied feeling annoyed.
“You go class today?” Uzo asked.
“Any class hold?” Uzo continued.
“Which one be that?”
“I don’t know” Val answered now feeling more
“This one you dey answer me like this, kilode?
“Wetin concern you on how I dey sound, Abeg
cut this thing before you go kill my battery for
me” Val retorted .
“Hmmmmm!! E be like say you don dey mad
again” Uzo fired back.
“Eee mak I dey mad, e no concern you, Val
replied and dropped the phone.
Val couldn’t help but feel very annoyed. He
disabled his phone by removing the battery and
placing them under his pillow. He didn’t know
what to think or do. The two voices fighting in
his mind have all fled. And to worsen it all, Uzo
came with his own trouble. “I don’t know why
that guy no dey respect himself”, he murmured.
Still thinking of nothing in particular, his eyes
became heavy and before he could say “purity”
he drifted into another realm, the dream world
