During their third year in the university, Stanley met a beautiful girl one day at the Library, when he tried striking a conversation with her; she waved him aside and said “Please leave me alone. I’m not in the mood to talk”. He was taken by surprise at her rudeness and after much persuasion without any success; he left the young girl alone.
After that day, he went to the same spot at the library to see if he would be lucky enough to find his Cinderella; but he never did. He was on the brink of losing hope when a voice told him not to give up.
She turned to leave when he said “Wait. Okay, you got me. I don’t think we’ve met before. I’m Franklin. He thrust his hand towards her for a shake, she took it and said: “I’m Elizabeth but my friends call me Lizzy”. “It’s nice to meet you. Can I walk with you?” he asked “Sure” she replied.
Franklin sensed where the conversation was headed and said “Na wa for you oh! I don turn your shadow?” “No be like that. I just notice say you dey get many places to go these days” Stanley continued. “I just get some kind things wey I dey try sort out” replied Franklin. “Eehn? Okay nah. No wahala, just watch your back!” replied Stanley with a serious expression on his face.
Franklin didn’t want to introduce him to his babe yet but after some thinking, he decided to tell him, after all, he was his best friend. “Em, the truth is I’ve been hanging out with a new girl I just met. Her name is Lizzy and I can’t seem to get enough of her.” He said smiling widely. “Really? Wow, that’s nice bro. When do I get to meet this damsel? Stanley asked undoubtedly excited.
Still confused, Franklin followed him into the bedroom. “I don’t understand, what’s going on?” “How could you do this to me? I thought we were friends” Stanley replied angrily. Franklin, who was obviously still confused said “I don’t understand! What are you talking about?” “So you mean you don’t know this is the same girl I met a few weeks back? The same girl I’ve been searching the whole campus for?”asked Stanley.
Franklin honestly didn’t know; Stanley hadn’t told him the girl’s name or even her department. He had absolutely no idea she was the same girl his friend was going crazy for until now. How was he supposed to handle this now? He can’t just hand the girl over to his friend; he’s madly in love with her too!
