On our way home, Mustack insisted on knowing my place since we were heading the same way. I took him to my place. I stay in a room self contain very close to the school.

I could see Mustack admiring the interior design of my room when we entered the room. “nice place you have here” he said. “thanks” He fixed his gaze on the two plastic chair beside the bed. “wetin chair dey do for your room?” he asked His question got me confused. I wanted to ask him if he didn’t know what they are made for. Like seriously, he should know that it’s there for my visitors to sit on. 
“It’s there for my visitors convenience” I answered. he shook his head like I just said something unbelievable. “So if a lady visit you, you will ask her to sit on that chair” he said “yes of course” I answered “now I know you are still a novice in this game. Don’t you know that it would be difficult for things to happen when she’s sitting on a chair. but when she is sitting just beside you on your bed, you won’t even have to stress yourself. The closeness between you both would stir up things.” 
All what Mustack said didn’t make any meaning to me. All I knew was that those chairs were supposed to be for my visitors convenience. 
“So are you saying that you don’t have any chair in your room” I said “what do I need a chair for when there’s a bed to sit on” he answered I still didn’t understand what he was saying, because I believed those chairs were for my visitors convenience. “okay, since I have known where you stay now, let me start leaving before it get dark. I still have something to do at home” he said “okay bro, no problem” I responded. I shook hand with him and he left. 
I lay on my bed trying to see if I could give any meaning to what Mustack said. The vibration of my phone distracted me. I took the phone and stared into the screen. My heart missed a beat when I saw an unknown number. I still couldn’t explain why I always have this fear when I see an incoming call from an unknown caller. I could only think of one person as the caller, and that’s Kate. Why would she be calling me now. It’s hasn’t been up to an hour we left the bar and she was already calling. She should have allowed me to rest first. I quickly rehearsed a few words I would say to her. 
“Hello Kate” I said immediately I picked the call. “hi Christian, this is not Kate, this is Sharon” My heart missed a beat at the mention of Sharon. “Sharon” I mumbled How did she get my number. I didn’t remember giving her my number. This was the part I hated the most. I hated being caught unaware. When I had already rehearsed what to say to Kate, thinking she was the caller, it now happened to be Sharon. What would I say to her. 
“How are you?” she asked ” hello………. hello………. hello I can’t hear you clearly. The line is breaking” I said, making it look like I couldn’t hear what she was saying. “hello Christian, can you hear me now?” she asked. “hello…………. hello……………… hello I can’t hear you” I said and ended the call before she could speak further.

Before I pick a lady’s call, I always made sure that I already have prepared speech in order to reduce my nervousness. I didn’t rehearse any word to say to Sharon because I wasn’t expecting her to be the caller. I quickly rehearsed what I would say when she calls back. My phone started ringing almost immediately. I took a deep breath and pick the call. 
“Hello” I said calmly “hello Christian, can you hear me now? This is Sharon” “Sharon, how are you?” I asked “I’m fine. You just left the class like that. You didn’t even allow us to conclude our discussion before leaving” she said. “I’m sorry Sharon. I received an important call while in class. I just had to leave before class ended” I said “okay, I just what to remind you of our tutorial on Monday” she said “I’m aware” I said “okay, I will talk to you later” she said “how did you get my number?” I asked I needed to know how she got my number, because I didn’t remember giving her my number. “I got it from joy” she responded “okay, I see” I said “talk to you later then” “okay” she responded I ended the call and heaved a sigh of relief.
