Time for Buenortey to start talking…
“Well, Ansomaa,” I began, “you want some clarity, I can see. I totally understand, with all you’ve been through and stuff. No worries. So, since you want to know the truth, is it alright if I talk plenty?”
She shrugged. “As long as you don’t bore me with the details.”
I snickered. “Don’t worry, I won’t. Alright, ummm… so, here’s the deal…
“The truth is, from the moment I saw you in that classroom, I had a thing for you. I really did. I’m not the kind of guy who develops feelings like that, on the spot. You know I’ve said it before; fine girls di333, you make plenty for this campus top. Every week, I see at least one fine girl. I admire small, then I go my way. But with you…”
I shook my head at that point. Chale, what I felt that day as I saw her, eh, it was not a joking matter.
“… with you, I knew just admiring you would not be enough. I just had to get through to you.”
I looked at her. I could see she was watching me intently. The darkness, tho…
“Alright, lemme use my phone flashlight, na I need to see your face,” I stated, taking my phone from the floor and proceeding to switch it on.
“Ah, but just turn the light on, eh!” she retorted as I switched it on.
“Nah. We good,” I said with a smirk as I put the phone, light up on the bed. “There we go. Now I can see that pretty little face and those big cheeks as I speak,” I added, tickling her chin with that, to which she laughed.
I always do that to get a shy laugh out of her. She’s so gorgeous when she does that.
“Now, back to what I was saying,” I restarted. “So it’s been close to three months since we got to know each other. It’s been fun getting so close to you and spending so much time with you. As far as my feelings toward you are concerned right now, it’s… should I say, developed. But lemme start with the major thing that caught my attention.”
I reached for her cheek and stroked it gently. “Ansee, you are so damn fine. I knew that from the get go, and it’s never been in doubt. Honestly, girl, you dey bost my mind pass!”
She laughed softly and shook her head. “You, eh.”
“No jokes, baby girl. Remember when we went to that movie premiere? Herh, Ansee, I’m not kidding, I couldn’t get you out of my mind for the rest of the night.”
She laughed even more.
It was serious oo. You see, she’s got some incredible hips on her. And from the little I’ve seen, it’s like she has clothes that can really accentuate those curves and make her look so damn irresistible, and clothes that don’t really bring it to light, so she looks normal. This pink and white dress she wore when we attended some recent movie distin was purely of the former category. Some pink and white off-shoulder blouse with a matching skirt and a gorgeous shawl around her shoulders.
Herh! That day is the day I saw that self-control is criminally underrated. The way I kept my feelings reined in di33, only God ooo. Because I honestly wanted to grab her close to me at a point and just fondle and kiss her. That deep, chale. Her body really dey trigger me.
But of course, I can’t let that happen. It wouldn’t be right. The way this generation spoil already, I don’t wanna add to the rot. Even with her sleeping over, sleeping on the chair was a must. I mean, me on the same bed with Ansomaa? Forget, I’d have done damage to those hips. The only time I wanna do that is if she’s Mrs. Buenortey. As for that, she’ll really experience things, and God won’t have any problem with us. Hehe!
“But beyond this… beautiful face and sensational little body, I’ve come to encounter the intelligent genius that you are. You know how much you’ve challenged me in so many ways through our chats and debates? Trust me, you have. You’re so witty, so sharp. And you know exactly what it is you’re talking about. Even when we don’t agree, I respect your point of view, because you are one smart girl.”
She had that shy smile on her face again, though her eyes were down.
“Of course, you love God, which is evident in your actions and all that. And that’s always a nonnegotiable for me, even though some of my experiences with church girls have been anything but pleasant. You’re not just about saying it. You live it out.
“And Lord have mercy, you are a stubborn girl! Ah!”
That got her laughing out loud. She warned me from the beginning that she is, and chale, she’s lived up to it. The way this girl can give headache, eh. It’s not a laughing matter.
“But that’s something I can learn to live with. I love the hospitality in you whenever I come to your place. You sure are a queen, the way you serve me and show concern for me and all that. You’re the perfect hostess, Ansee, and you inspire me.”
She was silent as she continued to listen to me. I took a deep breath and decided to round it all up.
“Ansomaa, all in all, I think you’re a wonderful person, and I am so fond of you. It’s early days yet, but I know I want more than friendship with you. We’ve got a beautiful vibe, and I know one thing: I don’t want to lose you. I thought I’d wait a bit to make it official to you, but chale, you’ve ambushed me. So naa your life dey.”
I then reached for her hands and took them in mine, as I looked her directly in the eye.
Here it was: time to lay it down and let her be aware of my true intentions. All I’ve ever wanted since I saw her in that classroom that fateful morning.
“Akua Ansomaa Abrokwah, I really, really like you. And I want to be more than just a friend. I want you in my life as that special one, my best friend. My girl.”
