“Na lie!” Chuka exclaimed. He couldn’t believe what Ifeanyi had just told him. “Omo, she played you oh! Pele.”
Ifeanyi sat with his head in his hands. He still couldn’t believe what had happened yesterday. He thought he knew her. He had really believed she loved him. Was this payback? Some kind of karma?
“Payback’s a bitch, sha,” Chuka said, as if in response to Ifeanyi’s thoughts.
Ifeanyi let the tears roll freely from his eyes. The sobs came after. How did he miss it? He knew her every move. Whenever she wasn’t with him or at work, she was in Church. Was it someone from Church?
“These Church girls, sef. They are such great pretenders!” Chuka continued, thinking that his philosophy would console his friend. “Don’t ever trust a woman, o. That’s my motto. You know it could even be someone in Church.”
Ifeanyi lifted his head for a minute. “Do you really think so? That she had a Church boyfriend?”
“I won’t put it past her o. All those fine clothes that she wears… you never wondered who was buying her those things? My sister doesn’t pay her that much!” Chuka speculated.
“Chai!” Ifeanyi exclaimed. “I am a fool!”
