That's all I'm gonna call him.

Ezeji is my friend. I know this sounds cliche but he was the first really close male friend I ever had. I met him in 2009 and we became fast friends! He's not that tall but he is so cute! He is dark, with the loveliest smile, an oval face with really nice cheek bones and he knows how to rock them glasses!
Ezeji was my tutor for a long while when he was in my school. Every time i had trouble with any class at school, I would run to him. He was always helpful and kind. He always made time for me.

This guy had 2 jobs while in school. He was on scholarship but still had to work to support himself. Hard working, smart, kind, friendly, and nice. He was/is really really nice.  Also very Respectful to everyone and thoughtful. Never one to engage in drama, never one to hold a grudge. He helped me find myself? lol, and taught me how to stand up for what i believed in. Like Ms Lupita said, he helped me realize that "my dreams are valid". He was/is a great guy.

I had a massive crush on him then! But i hid it. lol. I never let on. I never told him. I was really really OK just being his friend. Besides tons of girls i knew liked him too. All races, everyone! lol. But really though, he had alot of admirers. A lot of them! He didn't seem to have time to date though. I mean the guy had to keep up his GPA plus work to support himself. He had younger siblings his parents were taking care of.  His family wasn't very well to do so he worked his butt off to achieve his goals in life. He was focused, driven, very hardworking. No really, lol. Im not even kidding. He was perfection. Well minus the height sha. You cant have it all :)

I had this friend Ashley. She liked him, so she came to me. She poured her Lil heart out to me, so i was sent on a mission to go get Ezeji for her. lol. I wanted him too but that wasn't gonna happen because na friend zone he dey with me, so I had to try for my friend.
I went to him with my case. lol. Told him about Ashley, showed him her picture, and sang her praises. He was hesitant at first but i buttered him up and gave him her contacts. They went out on a date for coffee but the guy wasn't feeling her like that though. Ashley really really liked him. He told me he wasn't interested in her but i couldn't tell Ashley. I pleaded with him to keep going out with her o! The boy refused and broke the poor girl's heart. Well that only lasted a day cos the sharp babe Ashley was on to the next  After that happened, i started to avoid him. lol. It was a little childish on my part because i was mad at him. I was angry for another person palava. lol. I was taking panadol for head ache wey no belong to me. lol. Ah i was a case then sha...

Anyway he cornered me one day like that and practically dragged me to the cafeteria to talk. Me i was forming like what na. lol. Doing shakara of "I'm not talking to you". See case na... I wasn't talking to him On top another person matter o! lol. I was such a child...
 He then got all serious talking about he "missed me" and stuff. Ah! I confuse o! I didn't really understand what he meant until he spelled it out for me. "I like you", he said. I remember that day so well. My heart did a somersault. Like no joke. My whole body was all cold. lol. I think that was the first time a guy confessed his feelings for me.
For a while he looked at me to say something... anything. I sat there motionless for a long time. He kept asking me to say something please. I finally mustered up the courage and i told him "I have a boy friend...". lol. Who dash me boyfy then? I lied! lol.  Through my teeth, I lied.I liked him so much o! But i lied.

That was four years ago. Ezeji is finally done with his (out of town)medical school. He called me yesterday, he is back in town. He wants to come see me. lol.

The Ex Factor

So i met Dimples most recent ex last night. Dimples and his friends had a Lil get together at his cousin's place. I was all up in there looking fresh and smoking as heck! lol. But yea though :) Y'all know i hate going out but this was for someone special to me so i had to put in effort. And i did good! Ehn i know you want proof... I'm not uploading any picture so take my word for it! #tongueout :)

It was actually a nice gathering. It wasn't full of rowdy guys and girls. It was filled with well educated, good looking, fresh young people. I was impressed. Then again my "Oga" is on PHD level thingz so na "bigs" people he suppose know.  Na so na. Ndi education. hahaha... The atmosphere was welcoming, the friends were great to me and the gathering was catered by Red Lobster. My fave restaurant! Of course i chop food plenty na. E fukwa(See) free food ;)

Her legs. Oh good Lord... that babe had legs for days mehn. Mile high and off the ground legs! Tape measurer go finish, if you're trying to measure her legs. She knew that was her best feature because sister mi was dressed to kill everyone. She had on this skimpy leather  short shorts and her hair looked like it was ready to be used in a Hair advert. Omo the babe fine die! It was hard not to notice her because she was like a social butterfly. From one person to the other. Laughing and smiling! Damn i wanted to be her for a min.

I was standing and talking to Dimples and Karen. She made it over to us. I wanted to do my fan girl spaz and ask her about her hair right away. God was on my side. Thank God i didn't o Because the pretty girl at the party i was admiring, happened to be the crazy ex of my boyfriend! hahahahaha... My goodness... i did not see that coming at all.

Looks can be deceiving o! In my mind i was thinking... "Chei so this na the emotionally unstable babe i don hear about ehn? See as she look like normal human being. Haaaaa... Na wa o!". Dimples and the babe broke up in 2011. Dimples never went into detail with me about what happened though. I didn't ask either. Karen was the one that gave me the load down. She and the cousin gisted me all that happened with her. If i start this gist, this post will be long for days!!!!!! lol. I can tell you though that she broke up with him, then went around tarnishing his name, then came back almost everyday for a year begging for another chance. She went to his office, his mother, his friends, etc... The girl was relentless! One time she gave him 100 phone calls in a day and over 50 emails proclaiming her undying love! In a day o! Dimples ran to church to pray her out of his life. lol. There was a period they reconciled but he refused to sleep with her. She then carried a rumor that he had turned gay. ROTFLMAO!!! This babe do pass every ex i don hear about. lol

She knew my name plus what i did for a living sef. I was like, "haaa this sister don do her investigation on me proper. Oh good Jesus help me o! Baba Lord you sabi say i know fit fight for man.... If the girl is looking to make a come back in his life, i go just leave the two of them. I no get strength for plenty drama sha". lol. I was just thinking...

She stood and talked with us for a long time. I was uncomfortable and i could sense Dimples was too. She just wouldn't leave. She kept talking and moving around with us. I was being nice and patient but i really wanted to tell her to shut up and leave na abeg. Our saving grace was Karen that text messaged her boyfriend to come and rescue us from her . When we finally got away from her, Dimples couldn't even look me in the eye. Home boy was  so embarrassed. I badly wanted to harass and taunt him and laugh my head off. But i just maintained sha. Time to make fun of him will come later. No use kicking a man when hes down... My poor baby :)
But chai the Ex is hot o! Fine gorgeous babe. I no go lie.  But After that interaction with her though, I'm good being me. Legs close to the ground and all. Me is fabulous ;) #flipsweaveandwalksawayheadheldhigh. lol

All in my head

Hi guys! I have a lot to talk about but this week is already so crazy for me. It used to be just work&fam but now i have a relationship to take care of too.

This past two weeks I've learnt that when you are in a relationship, its not just you. You gotta think of the other person, you gotta share your life, you gotta be open and thoughtful and kind. You have to think before you speak, you have to be careful because you are dealing with someone Else's feelings. Phew! Honestly it is a bit much.
See I'm a workaholic. Ive been taking care of so much since i was 16.  I have two jobs right now and i work 14 hours a day, 6 days a week. Besides that, i still have to help out with my Lil niece and nephew at home. At the end of the day or my free time all i freaking want to do is SLEEEEEEPP! I want to eat and sleep! I don't want to be on the phone, I don't want to go out. I just wanna sleep so my batteries are recharged for the long day tomorrow.
I don't know how to put on makeup. My hair is always up in a messy bun and my wardrobe consists of different kinds of medical work scrubs and sneakers. When I'm free(rarely) i just want to kick back and watch a kdrama or Castle or Disney channel with my niece. I cant use my phone at work but im allowed computer privileges. They have all the chat sites blocked including all social

You like someone, You really like them...but that's not enough. They say someone who cares about you will make time to see you right? What if that person works 6 days a week, 14 hour a day and just loves to sleep and sit in the house when shes free because shes so tired? Is that a deal breaker?
Long distance relationship was so much easier...

I hate driving. He lives an hour away. He offers to come to me but I'm at work or i just really want to sleep. Getting dressed for a fancy outing just has my body screaming, NOOOOOOOO! I'm just like ARRRRRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!!!
I really didn't think this through...maybe I'm not ready. I mean I've been single all my life. Maybe i should leave it that way. Maybe i love sleep more. Or maybe i should get off my butt and make time for this angel God has sent to me... Maybe I need to do better... Maybe I'm just rambling... Maybe just maybe Leona is slowing losing it... ARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH

Prayers for the family. Oh Lord :(

My heart literally broke. I hope to God they get rescued in time. A plane crashing into the ocean on an International flight is one of my greatest fears. I really gotta learn how to swim. Oh Lord please take control. I do not even want to imagine...

A day in the Park: 2

We walked the jogging trail in silence. The silence felt great. The weather was perfect and the lake was looking extra special to me that day. I still couldn't say anything but i held onto his elbow and felt at ease. I was wearing flats and the angle of elevation was incredibly evident. That guy is tall. Well maybe he's not that tall but considering I'm just 5'3, anyone above 5'5 is tall to me. lol.

We got to the shades with tables and we sat down on one of the benches. He broke the silence. He said, are you gonna ask me anything? I bursted out laughing. For some reason that laughter had me feeling so much at ease. I was still nervous but i was comfortable. I found out that he got into the country on the 25th of Feb. At 9pm. His cousin came to the airport and got him. I was at work that night so he didn't want to bother me. Besides he wanted to surprise me. I knew he was gonna be back that week but he didn't give me a specific day. He had to go to Tokyo for a conference and from Tokyo he came back home. He didn't spend that much time over there...he got in for the conference and got out after the conference. Did i mention he speaks fluent German, Japanese and English? I know! I know! Hes got an impressive resume. Me na only English and Igbo i sabi o! I hated French because my French teacher in Nigeria forced us to learn the language. I realised later on that i never did learn the language. I just crammed it in my brain so i could pass my exams and not get my butt whooped. After the exams, nothing was in my head. lol. My Mexican friends here teach me Spanish though. I know a few words and can make simple sentences. lol. Its really great to have someone that knows all these languages. I think its super cool :)

Speaking of having someone... lol. We made small talk for a lil then he got straight to the point. He told me he got me something. As a "confarmed" Igbo girl i perked up real quick. I was expecting to see bundles of pounds and dollars but he brought out this really shiny bracelet looking wrist watch. I was a lil disappointed but the watch was shiny so i was happy still. lol. Then he started with the sweet words... Awww :) Its was all so mushy so I'm not gonna moist you with all the details. lol.  My heart was beating and I felt everything he said all the way to my toes. It kinda felt like i was being proposed to though. The only thing missing was my audience and giant diamond ring. Well lets pray that will come later. Much much later. God willing o! Amen! Anyway he said all that and l held his gaze. I couldn't look away. Where my boldness came from, I know no o! But it was a really cherished moment. He asked me to be his girlfriend. His only official girl. He asked if I'd take him as my only boyfriend too. He said "will you take me and forsake all other Chukwuemekas?".  lmbo! He is so funny. I always joke about how I get hit on by random Chukwuemekas... lol. You know Emeka is a popular male Igbo name. lol. Anyway I said yes and he put on my shiny wristwatch for me. I was on Cloud 9. I know i was supposed to code my feelings but i was too happy to put a lid on anything. I hugged him tight and for the first time i heard him call me "my baby". awww... #tear. you should see my face as im typing this. Im all happy and grinning like a big clown ;D

Sha i have to say the calling me "baby" thing get as e be o! That's what my dad calls me. And my older brothers too. That's kinda been my nickname for my family since i was a kid. My mum calls me that sometimes. Ive always said that when i get a boyfriend, i will look for another pet name he can call me. I dont want to be thinking about my father when Im with him. lol. I have to say that when Dimples called me "my baby", it felt different. So different. It felt nice. And Nope! My papa no come to my mind. lol
So Leona finally has a boyfriend. Took me two decades and a lil years but it happened. It feels just right. I have no doubt in my mind. No reservation and no regrets saying yes to him. I know it's supposed to be this way... thats why i never said yes to Justin or Festus. lol. Their stories are coming. :)

So much Love,

First Beat Down Part 2

I got off the dance floor to catch my breath and pull myself together. I took a seat and sat down at the end of the living room. I badly needed water but i was too shaken to move. My "violator" was still on the dance floor though. Thank God. If he had followed me, i would have ran away from that house. lol. I learnt from secondary school In Naija and High school here to always run. I'm no Usain Bolt but i can pick race like no tomorrow. No try me o! hahaha :D

I noticed this very tall dark guy walking towards me. He wasn't that good looking facially but he was tall, really tall, and with a very nice build. He came and sat by me and said hello. God must have had a lil mercy on me  because homeboy was smelling fresh. No smoke, No alcohol... I silently thanked Baba God and smiled at him. We started making small talk and he had this really deep Island accent. It sounded really good and the guy could hold a conversation too. We were talking and laughing and i honestly didn't read too much into it. Where we were sitting was directly facing the kitchen, though the kitchen was a little in the distance. You know how oyibo kitchens are can see them from the living room. Most of them have open walls and are located right by the living room. Anyway as i was talking to this guy, whenever I'd look in the direction of the kitchen, I'd see these two girls staring daggers at me. I dismissed it though and tried not to look in their direction. Sometime later by accident i looked at their direction again and this time they weren't even coding it, they were looking at me with so much hate in their eyes. I didn't recognize them so i just opened my eyes right back at them and rolled it. As i did that i muttered something not so nice about them under my breath. I turned back to face my companion/talking buddy.

Big mistake. I should never have done the eye rolling because the girls were waiting for me to misstep. It didn't take them more than a minute and BBBAAAMM! They were in my face. Holy crap! The main girl and her side kick came over and they started raining abuses on me. They turned to the guy also and gave it to him. I was confused at first but not for long. I was called my "talking buddy's whore"...

She was like "Nigga is this the bitch you cheated on me with? Is this why you done left me after all we've been through? How dare you bring your whore to this party? and she has the guts to roll her eyes at me? Im finna kill this little heifer... Imma kill her and kill you too. Useless stinking ass nigga...". Oh she went on. And on! By now the party had gathered around us and the music had stopped. The guy was just sitting there and just shaking his head. I noticed some people trying to get her to go and cool down but she was not budging. I was just irritated and since she wasn't leaving, i tried to get up and leave. As i stood up, the main girl was turned to the guy but her friend around came and blocked me from leaving. People were telling her to leave me alone and step away. She was yelling curse words at them. I tried to push past her and leave and as i tried, the main aggressor came behind me in a swift calculated movement. She grabbed my hair hard and that action literally swung me around. I screamed! That's when the cheating boyfriend stood up and tried to get her away from me. She would not free my hair though. The guy was in between and trying to push her away from me but She kept holding on to my hair and pulling and pulling. I was there trying to free myself and tears of frustration and pain flooded my eyes. My friend whose party it was, was no where to be found. Her hubby wasnt there either. My saving grace was this girl (later got to know she was my friends cousin) that stepped in and  practically punched the girl holding my hair hostage. She immediately freed my hair and her cheating ex boyfriend carried her out admist screams. The girl that punched her took care of her friend too. lol. I think she actually beat that one down. I was too preoccupied with my pain to watch the beat down. At least my aggressor was strong...the back up side kick/her friend was a weakling just like me. hahahaha. A weakling with mouth though. Her behind got a nice ass kicking. lol

That girl( my aggressor) kept shouting and screaming outside the house. She wouldn't leave. The men didnt want to physically touch her before they'd get sent to jail. She said she wouldn't leave the premises except the ex boyfriend went with her. They kept trying to calm her and have her go so the police don't get called by the neighbours. I even heard someone saying that if the cops came to the house, they were going to take the ex boyfriend to jail because he just went to prison for assaulting her. My friend and her husband weren't there because they had left the party to go buy more beer. When she came back and heard what happened, she nearly came to blows with my aggressor. She was so sorry about the incident and kept apologizing to me the whole night. I was honestly too traumatized to drive. I stayed there till like 5am before i drove home. Do you know that the cheating ex boyfriend came back into the house to try to talk to me? Like this time really really hit on me? I couldn't even speak...i just kept thinking, is this nigga ok? lol. He really thought i was gonna put myself in a situation where I'd have a repeat performance of this drama? Na ah... My Mama didn't raise no fool.

My aggressor fights with everyone including her  ex boyfriend. That's why he left her behind after he got out of jail. I heard what happened was She hit him, and he hit her back but you know she didn't go to jail. He did though. He just got out and she wanted him back. I think they have been having some sex behind the scenes but didn't really get back together. The week of the party, he told her he didn't want to see her again because he is with someone else now. That didn't sit well with her. My friend said she didn't invite her to the party because she knew the guy was coming. She came with her friend that was invited and promised my friend she wasn't gonna get into any mischief or cause any trouble. Well she broke her promise when she attacked me. Oh my friend was ready to beat her ass. Her husband and her son and brother held her back mehn... They're all from the same Caribbean Island. I think after that night my aggressor was black listed from all of their future get

I learnt three things from that encounter. 1. Never roll your eyes at people who are staring daggers at you. You could get beat. 2. Before you engage in chummy conversation with rugged tall dark boys at a house party, look around with vigilant eyes. If some girl is staring at you with death in her eyes... run far away from said guy. 3. Learn self defense. You gotta know how to kick bitches asses. lol.

A day in the Park.

My friend Karen borrowed my shoes from me. They weren't even her size. lol. She was supposed to give them back a long time ago but she didn't. Last Wednesday(26th Feb) she called me up and asked me to meet her at the park close to my house. She said she had my shoes and she was on her way to some place but she will drive by the park and drop off the shoes for me.The park is right by the road, and my house is way way into the street/lane. I was sleepy and tired but she was impatient and persistent so i dragged myself up. I threw on some raggedly clothes and drove to the park. It was a little late in the evening and some kids were playing on the swings. Also saw some runners and dog walkers.

The park by my home has this gorgeous lake next to it. When i got there, i breathed in the fresh air and i found myself walking on the lane by the lake. The weather was beautiful and even though i was dressed like a Homeless woman, the feeling was just right. My useless friend was no where to be found by the way. I was going to call her but my pockets were empty. In my hurry i had left my phone at home! I kept walking though...good excuse to exercise.

As I was walking, I had this feeling that someone was following me. I kept turning my back and this guy that was behind me just wont pass me. After a while, it got real uncomfortable for me so when i saw a bench, i just "kukuma siddon" for the bench to allow my stalker to pass. He had on white tshirt, an open sweater and jeans. I couldnt see his face because a baseball hat (face cap) covered his face. I sat down on the bench and when i looked up, the guy was standing right in front of me. Me wa confused but before i could speak, he took off his hat.

At first it didn't register to me who was standing in front of me. I was just thinking...who be this one? He then squatted in front of me so he was at eye level with me. That's when i recognized him! Good Lord! He was in front of me and smiling! Dimples!!!!!!! I SCREAAAAMMMMEDDDD!!!!! Before the poor guy could recover from the attack on his ear drums, i jumped on him. There was no balance and together we tumbled onto the lane. We were on the hard floor, I was on top of him, screaming his name and squeezing the life out of him. He was laughing so hard. Then he was like, I totally got you! I totally got you! SUURRRPRISE!!!

We were in that position for a minute before the poor guy begged for his breath back. lol. I was carried away! I was hugging him so tightly that he couldn't breathe. hahahaha... When we got up, i was hanging onto his arm for dear life. It was like i was holding unto it for fear he might disappear if i let him go. lol. He jokingly pointed that out and i immediately let his arm go and moved away a little.
Then he said "no no no, I was joking. Please You can hold on to it for as long as you want". I was already back to reality and the shyness took over. lol. When he saw i wasn't taking his arm or hand again, He reached for mine and tucked it in his elbow. Butterflies were having a party in my insides. I was done screaming and the words weren't coming out. Suddenly my throat was all dry and i wanted to run away from him. The nerves kicked in. Then i looked at myself. My people i was dressed a mess. Did i mention i didn't even rinse my sleepy mouth before i came out? That my sweater and sweat pants i had on has seen 'better days? The main thing on my mind then was how i would kill my friend Karen. A freaking lil hint would have worked just fine ba? lol

To be continued...
