It is 5.30am, I am up with a terrible headache from all d alcohol consumed at the bachelor’s eve, and Raphael is not in his room, actually he’s nowhere to be found. He is not missing at least because his phone is still ringing and he can’t afford to miss today. The guys at the hotel reception said they did not see him leave, neither did the security guys and his car is still where we parked it.
I finally receive a text from him but it is more confusing than surprising. “MEET ME AT TEMPERANCE, THAT HOTEL AT OTA, ABEG NO TELL ANYBODY”. I am actually going to pick up my wallet and car keys, but I am hoping this is some form of prank from Raphael. Why is he at ota, or could something have suddenly gone wrong? Or is it change in plans?
Today is actually the Saturday, and it’s Raphael’s wedding day; he’s getting married to Ada today. I Haven’t seen a better couple than Ada and Raphael! They look beautiful together, they do similar things and even have similar hobbies,the fit each other snuggly like a perfect size glove. Raphael met Ada at a dance competition, afterwards in other dance competitions they registered as a couple and Oh boy!, the way they moved together when they danced!, they won so many competitions afterwards! People loved this couple. Let me not even get started on friday nights at the club with “Ralphda”, always in each other’s arms dancing for us the mediocre dancers to watch (I am actually a very good dancer. School stiffened my waist a little, but I am still maltina dance all grade sha).
So I have been around this couple for the past 7 years. Ralph was my roommate and my classmate in the university, sometimes I had to sleep in class when Ada came around, yeah right *rme* they alwayd had some routine to rehearse so I gave them space. abegi I wasn’t just up for hearing someone screaming “ralph faster” in the middle of my sleep joor; yeah and after uni we rented a house together at magodo, though he works with GSK while i work at a community pharmacy, gives me more time as a freelance detective (don’t beef).
So fast forward approximately 75minutes, it was a miracle I didn’t dose off behind the wheel, Thank God!. I am at the bar at temperance sitting opposite Raphael looking at his eyes for answers, it’s obvious he has being crying,this has to be serious then o, but I just waited for Him to say something. Then he drops the bombshell “I CANT MARRY ADA, SHES BEEN CHEATING ON ME”. Do I say am stunned, “What the f#*@*!”. I really don’t know how I felt but I quickly ran to the bar to get a big bottle of water, I needed to clear my head before I look at what is on the phone he just passed to me. So it’s actually Ada’s phone, I remember her looking for it all the while we were at Rhapsody drinking yesterday evening. So it has been with him all the while, and we thought she lost it in the saloon, no wonder he was so quiet, I actually thought it was mere cold feet; yeah it was cold feet but nothing mere about this one o.
So we dealing with two bombs here, one is the bomb that exploded yesterday morning which Raphael found out and the other is about to go down in the church when the news breaks that there is no more wedding. Both bombs utilised the same packing paper RAPHAEL, I look in his eyes and I see that my friend is burnt and shredded he isn’t just completely dead.
So all the while Raphael sat across Ada in d bar yesterday, he looked at her face and he saw persons, he was actually asking himself how the angel and the demon manage to stay together within her without outwardly showing the inner battles, guess she had found a way to keep them on the same side; because Ada is really an angel, she is wife material 1000 yards and best friend mixed in one. In school the so called rich yahoo boys always said they couldn’t get her because the babe was too faithful to Raphael. Ada was everything a nigga wanted in a wife but right now I had no clue what to say to her defence, I honestly still want to keep eating those her delicacies cos am still very much single, well just for the next 6 months max sha, and I know Raphael’s house is my house.
So am done reading this long chat and its obvious Ada is having an affair but something is still not clear. Then Raphael says to me Bobby “do you get the big picture now?” and I am still trying to put all the pieces together because something isn’t just clear yet. Then he tells me to look at the display name and dp, the name is smallie. I am still confused and then I enlarge the display picture and it is Sarah.
Raphael always calls Sarah smallie because of her small frame, she has a big booty to go with it and is also a very good dancer. You need to see her twerk! So sarah and Ada are lesbians, actually they lesbian partners, no wonder the chat was confusing Ada is the man in thier relationship. At this point, the pounding in my head gets worse.
SARAH IS YOURS SINCERELY’S GIRLFRIEND, I PLANNED TO PROPOSE DURING THE WEDDING TODAY AND IT WAS ADA’S IDEA.
So there was a third bomb and this time Ralph and I are the packing paper, but I think this is weapon’s grade.
Now I’m sure you’re wondering how these three bombs exploded and how the rest of this supposedly beautiful saturday went……well you are just going to imagine that for a while
