“So how’s it going with miss over there?”

I pointed to the girl over at the service counter in a restaurant while taking a sip of beer from the glass cup.

Adam covered his face with both of his hands.

“She still doesn’t want to drop her number,” he replied. “I’ve tried several times, I’ve even waited for her to be done with her shift. But she kept saying no.”

“She’s married you moron,” I said.

“Is she?” Adam opened his eyes wide out of surprise. “Why didn’t you tell me?”

I smiled as took another sip from my cup.

“It was fun to watch you look silly,” I laughed and spilled the beer over the table.

Adam squeezed a piece of paper on the table and threw it towards my direction. I dodged and it hit one of the customers who sat behind us. We both pretended like nothing happened when he turned.

As we were about to leave, I got a call from Yemisi which I ignored.

“I forgot to tell you. I bumped into Yemisi at the store the other day,” I said to Adam who was being ignored by the girl at the counter as he was waving to her.

“Oh really! That one gets wahala too” he replied.

“She just called me.”

Adam looked at me suspiciously. “What are you up to?” He asked.

“No no…It’s not what you think.” I tried to explain.

“I Told her my job, and she has something for me. Strictly business”

“So when are you going to see her”

“I don’t know yet”

Adam gave me a fist bump as he got into his car and drove off.

I called Yemisi back, and she picked up immediately

“Hey, I’ve been expecting your call”

“Of course. She replied.”

“How about we meet at my studio and discuss. ”

“Studio….No…How about you come over to my place let’s discuss. I’ll text you the address.”

“Uhmm…..Okay. your place then”.

I looked at my car, it was very untidy. I hadn’t washed it in weeks.

I wouldn’t like to show up at a customers place with a ride like that, so I called Adam to give me a ride to Yemisi’s place. Probably he would be excited.

Adam, however, had work to do, and he didn’t even like the idea.

“Wouldn’t it be awkward considering she’d be ignoring my phone calls,” He said.

So, I quickly drove over to the car wash to get my car cleaned up.
