My desire

By Abubakar Balqees opeyemi

It was late at night and I couldn’t stop thinking about Abdulqodri. He hasn’t called as promised and I was wondering if he had forgotten me.

“Will he call me? Has he forgotten me so soon? Or should I call him? No I can’t, I’m a big girl and big girl don’t do such” I kept thinking

I was already dozing off when my phone rang. “That must be him” I said to myself but it was a strange number and I could remember saving Abdulqodri’s contact immediatly I got out of his car. “Maybe he choosed to use different number” I said to myself again.

I cleared my throat and said “Hello” but to my surprise, the caller said “Asalamu Aleikum”. The moment I heard the person’s voice, I knew it wasn’t Abdulqodri but it was a male’s voice.

Though I met Abdulqodri that day, but with the little conversation I had with him, I realized he wasn’t religious enough to start a conversation with tasleem. Even with the fact that I was wearing hijab when he saw me, he called me “baby girl” and I spent the whole day thinking about what he would call me when he calls. Maybe he would start with “hello angel” and I would reciprocate with “hi handsome” or he would say “hello damsel” and I would reply with “hi baby boy” and not Salamah at all.

“Waleikumsalam” I said (answering the caller). “How are you” he asked and I replied saying “pls who is this?” he continued “I’m Salman, the guy that approached you this morning…” I ended the call the moment I recalled.

“What sort of nonsense is this? Where could he have gotten my number from?” I was still angry when my phone rang again and thought Salman called back. I didn’t check the caller before picking the call and I was about to give him the insult of his life when I heard “bae, what’s up, has he called?”

It was my friend Zainab, I told her about Abdulqodri earlier that day and she had called to find out if he has called me as promised.
I was about to tell her he hasn’t called when I heard my phone vibrate. I checked the screen and it was Abdulqodri. “Zainab! Hang up please” I said and she did without asking why.

I picked Abdulqodri’s call saying “hello” and he said “baby girl”(as expected). I didn’t know what to say next, so I chose to remain quiet. “I was too busy to call you but believe me, I couldn’t stop thinking about you all day” he said romantically in a low voice.

I smiled and said to him “how am I supposed to believe that?” Then he said “why don’t we meet tomorrow so I can prove to you that I’ve got you in my head” we ended the call

Will I meet him the next day?
