You were mine for the summer.

Its Summer, she's finally back together with her friends after a whole school year. They do what they'll normally do during the summer, hang out and have fun. But this summer is different when she meets him.
Would it be more than a summer fling?


5. Almost over.



He broke my heart unintentionally. Our conversations became more consistent, we got closer as the days grew. I let myself fall in love with him even though I knew that there was little or no chance of him ever loving me back.

Two days before I was going to leave Nigeria I went over to his house and we were home alone again. We were in the kitchen,planned on making some pasta for lunch, he was making me smile as usual and then out of nowhere he asked “How do you feel about me?” this was definitely the most difficult question I could’ve ever been asked. Once again silence grew, I really didn’t know what to say, I knew he didn’t really wanna hear how I really felt about him because he wouldn’t be able to say anything back or to reciprocate the feelings. I couldn’t think of anything to say and once again I could feel my eyes welling up with tears, I replied saying “You confuse me.” that came out in a very shaky voice and it just sounded so stupid, I mentally smacked myself for saying that but that was the only thing I could think of saying. He stopped what he was doing and walked up to me, he held my hands in his but I just couldn’t get myself to look at him because I was sure I was gonna start bawling my eyes out. He just held me tight and waited for me to stop crying before he said “I’m sorry I’m hurting you. I really don’t mean to.” his voice reflected that he was very sorry and that he didn’t mean to hurt me in any way. I was aware that he wasn’t hurting me intentionally but he was the only one who could stop me from hurting so much. He was my problem and he was the only solution to my problem. When I finally got myself to look at him, the first thing I said was “I’m leaving the day after tomorrow.” he looked absolutely shocked and then I realised that I hadn’t told him before, he dropped my hands, walked away and then came back. “You’re leaving in 2days!? Why didn’t you tell me before.” I felt really bad that I hadn’t told him but I just really didn’t wanna dwell on the fact that time was against us, I just wanted to enjoy being with him for the little time we had. I apologised and he didn’t say anything for the rest of the time that I was there, he just held me in his arms really closely.

The next day he came over to my house at around 10am and I was just making breakfast, infact I was still in my Pyjamas. I was slightly embarrassed when I went to the door and found him waiting. I wasn’t expecting him, he told me he had some appointment that day. Even though I was so happy to see him, the first thing I said to him was “Why are you here? You didn’t tell me you were coming.” he smiled and then said “Good morning, nice to see you too.” in a sarcastic tone then I just smiled and let him in. He came to the kitchen with me, we had breakfast, cleared up and then went back to the front room. As we sat down he said “Go get dressed, we’re going out.” I asked where we were going but he wouldn’t tell me. He just told me to get myself ready and told me I had less than an hour. After complaining for about 15mins that the time was too little for me to get dressed, he just said that “if you’re not done in 45 minutes, you’re getting in the car no matter what.” he sounded determined so I went into the shower and I told him to pick out my outfit to make it easier and faster. I think while he was going through my clothes he must have found a picture of me and Iyanu which was in a digital frame and was placed at the top of my wardrobe.

When I came out he had the frame in his hand and asked “Who’s this.” I smiled and said “My ex.” he looked very serious he was concentrating on the picture. Almost like he was trying to analyse the picture “What happened? You look so happy.” I didn’t know what to tell him because honestly I couldn’t say exactly what happened to mine and Iyanu’s relationship, so I answered his saying “We just drifted apart due to distance.” for a moment he didn’t say anything. He just watched the picture intently, then he asked “Do you still have feelings for him? Any chances of you getting back together?” I smiled before answering him “Definitely not, we broke up almost over a year ago.” and then told him about the incident that happened at Timi’s house recently. We stayed talking about my relationship with Iyanu for about an hour and then resumed getting me dressed. He chose me the simplest outfit ever, a pair of leggings, a crop top and a pair of black flats. At first he didn’t want me to put any make-up on but then I told him it felt very weird not wearing even the tiniest bit of make-up so he decided that he was gonna put some mascara, gel liner and lipstick on me. That moment was definitely the best moment of my whole summer, he did it very fast and he actually did it pretty good as well. When he was putting my lipstick on I felt like I couldn’t hold back any more, I mean he was just so close all I wanted was to feel his lips against mine. I think he figured that out so he did it very quickly and then we were ready to go. On getting outside I saw that he had his dads car which was a Jeep and he already told me that he hated driving jeeps except when he was going to another state, once again I asked where we were going but he still wouldn’t tell me.

I must have dosed off at some point during the journey because when I woke up we were almost in Lagos. I asked why we were here and he just said “Don’t worry, you’ll see.” so I didn’t worry and I just nodded in response. After about another hour we were at the seaside, now I see why he got me to wear flats. We got out of the car and he led the way to the mini boutique that was there, we bought we some bikini bottoms and top, after I moaned about how he was wasting money because I had loads at home. But he just didn’t reply, he payed and then we went back to the car where I got changed. He grabbed a towel and his camera, ensured the doors were locked and headed down to the sea side.

He held my hand in his as we walked towards the beach, I felt a connection then. You could tell he was happy, he was smilling. For a while we just walked around and talked about anything except the fact that I was leaving tomorrow. I felt like he was avoiding that topic because any time I mentioned something about travelling back to London he immediately changed the subject.
