Let me introduce myself, that’s what people who have stories to tell do right?. My name is Femi, a graduate of LASU and a renowned aproko way back in school, i can’t forget the memories of school days and of course my oyinbo friend, Esther. Esther was a very brilliant and beautiful young lady, the latter made many of her male colleagues in school stare so passionately, even me.
She was the daughter of a retired Navy Marshall, her mother was a renowned fashion mogul in the busy streets of Lagos. Being the only child, a lot of care and attention was given to her, even when she didn’t request for any. She was dedicated to her studies, and an ardent supporter of a feminist movement within her locale, everything seemed very rosy until something terrible happened.
I am sure for a moment there, you thought something bad had happened to Esther. No, i am making reference to Esther’s best friend, Janet. Janet was the closest person to Esther besides her family, she was also a member of the same feminist movement, but a rather extreme feminist. An undergraduate of Law, she was always harsh and negative-thinking towards men, claiming they were animals and seekers of power.
As far as she could tell, all men were ‘scum’ and nothing could dare change this mindset of hers. This same mindset has gotten her into trouble with one of her ‘aspiring boyfriends’. She publicly posted on Facebook and her WhatsApp status, a series of flirt texts, partially unclad pictures and demands of sex that Ugo had been asking from her, captioning each post with ‘Men are animals’, ‘I cannot be disvirgined’, ‘Men are demons’ and other rated 18 words i best not say. You must be wondering, where the hell did Ugo come from?. Well, Ugo was the last conviction to Janet that men could be trusted and different, he had always being of help to Janet and never had a thought of sleeping with her or even dating her until now.
Both Esther and Janet were in their finals, Ugo still had two years to graduate. Janet never hid the identity of the sender of those texts and pictures, every student who had her on Whatsapp and Facebook knew it was Ugo, he was a social bee back in school, but wasn’t known for being so loose. He got the news on how Janet had humiliated him, he knew she despised men but didn’t know she was out of control. In her very rash mind, she thought she was punishing him and giving a very detectable red light, she didn’t know how very different Ugo had become…
