So long a Boulevard!
Hello Stella and the BVs... I've been reading people's SYB and I thought I should send mine cos I HAD FUN!! Lmao. My story is long, bear with me, biko.
Well, I served in 2012 and got posted to Abia . I tried to "work" it to Lagos or Ibadan but it didn't work :( I sha accepted fate and prepared for Abia. Contacted a friend who knew someone in Umuahia, so I left Lagos for Umuahia a day before the camp opened so I could enter as early as possible the next day. The guy I stayed with overnight was forming nice and all, me I just maintained and slept. The next morning, he took me somewhere in Umuahia to eat breakfast and took me all the way to Umunna Bende.
I got to the camp and soldiers were screaming at me to carry my box on my head, told them I couldn't cos it was heavy. I catwalked all the way to the big hall for registration and got Platoon 9, met the cute platoon director. Omoh, the guy cute die. I smiled at him and made sure he noticed me. *wink*
So, camp activities started and I joined the volleyball team and parade. Met some guys I started rolling with and going to Mami together to eat cos I couldn't stand the horrible food. There was really no activity in the first week apart from the basics, then the second week, action started :D
On the first day of the second week, we were attending lectures in the morning and I met this cute baby faced guy just sitting there, enduring the boring lecture about God knows what, cos I wasn't listening. We started talking and became fast friends, by the next day he was already showing signs of wanting to get closer. As a sharp girl that likes cute boys na, I jelled. Na so the camp romance started o. We would go to Mami and eat together, find one dark corner and kiss at night. While all that was going on, I noticed one other yellow pawpaw guy that contested for Mr NYSC and came second, we talked once or twice but kept our distance even though we were feeling each other.
On the day we were supposed to get posted, me and my camp boo went to collect our letters and found out we were posted to different places, I was extremely sad but my bobo said I should chill. He said to follow him to his own POP and chill for a day or two before going to mine. That's how we went to Umuahia and got one hotel where we gbenshed tire for two days and we went our ways.
On getting to the place I was posted, they took me to the corpers' fellowship house, but I couldn't stay there so I went to another hotel to stay for the night and proceeded with my registration the next day and I got a GRA apartment free of charge all because the director of the department they posted me was winking at me, me I sha dey flirt with am.
So, all settled and everything. I wasn't going to work cos there was nothing to do at the LG they posted me, I just slept, watched a lot of movies and ate. My camp boo came once or twice but I already lost interest, we don gbensh and I wasn't seeing a future for us, besides, I still wanted to be single, wild and free.
Remember the Mr NYSC guy? It so happened that we were posted to the same Local govt, we met during registration and exchanged numbers. Na so the guy started calling o. One day, he asked me to visit him and I did, we spent all day talking and gisting and night nack, I noe fit go house. I slept over! Oga disturb me tire, touched me, almost gave me head sef.. lmao. I told him till another time.
To cut the long story short, we got together and I was looking at it as a fling but Oga was falling in love. Come and see serious love whenever we were with other corpers for clearance or meeting. The guy became obsessed with me o. Kissing me in front of everyone, sometimes even carrying me. Ah, the love na wah.
One day, we went for a party at the officers' mess cos we had an Army barracks near us. So, I walked past this guy smelling really nice and said "hey, you smell really good" and oga commented on my perfume too and we parted ways. All through the party, I saw girls throwing themselves at the guy and flocking around him. I found out the guy is one of the captains at the barracks and he's one of the hot ones there. Funny enough, the guy couldn't stop looking at where I was and eventually walked up to me to ask for what I wanted, I told him nothing but he insisted on buying something for me. I sha said no and started forming hard to get. I ignored him all through and went home the next morning.
My Mr NYSC bobo dey there, disturbing me everyday, the Army officer guy sef was sending people to me, me I was sha chill. One day, someone just called and said he's Captain so so so, I was surprised and asked him how he got my number, he didn't tell me. He sha asked for a date and I said yes, he said he was going to pick me up the next day. Next day, oga came in full army uniform and I fell in lust. I didn't know how fine the guy is cos we saw at night and the day he came to my house was the first time I saw him during the day. He took me to his place and I cooked for him and watched TV till late, then he went to drop at home, walked me to the door and kissed me passionately. Gawd, I became wet immediately. Nicca knows how to kiss abeg. Chai, the kiss was sweet.
To cut the story short, we started dating and I became the talk of the town. During that time again, I met one young, rich Architect like that, the bobo fine noe be small, caring to a fault and a husband material. I kept dating the two of them but the architect bobo sabi gbensh sha, I was torn between the two of them.
One day o, Captain was supposed to pick me for late lunch after work, na so Architect came to surprise me :'( , Captain met Architect and stopped talking to me. Captain na one kind person that forms a lot, so he just didn't wait. I tried calling him and explaining the guy is just a friend, oga noe gree. Na so I shenk am *eye roll*
I had a neighbour that stayed next to my room, the aunty get one boyfriend that comes every weekend, that bros wan kill that aunty with gbensing. Whenever he's around ehn, you will just be hearing the aunty screaming "eh, oh, ah" all through the night. Chai, to sleep on weekends na war.
I was with Architect till the end of service year but he said we would only continue dating if I agreed to stay back in the east. I couldn't cos my mama woulda killed me with phone calls. Mr NYSC became possessive and annoying, so I avoided him all through.
Ah, the platoon officer I met the day I entered camp sef was there o. That oga get shakara noe be small. We kept in touch all through service year but he was just too full of himself to chase me. About one month before the end of service year, we met in town and and he offered to drop me at home. We got to my house and started watching a movie, it got too late and he asked if he could stay, na so I said yes o. I wore a Jean knicker and the oga kept laughing, not too long into the night, he started touching me and fingering me, omoh, I nearly died. I had to hold myself cos I just didn't want to sleep with him. Next morning, we parted ways and stopped talking to each other.
A week before leaving, I got a call from Captain and we kind of made up, even though he said things werent gonna be the same. That night, we hung out and some local boys started acting crazy and pulling my hand, do you know my guy slapped one of the boys and called some soldiers to come beat them up. Me I was just sitting there forming delicate flower :D, he booked me a ticket to Lagos that night. We hung out once again a night before I went back home and gbenshed allll night! Next morning he asked a cab man to drop me and my bags at Owerri so I could catch my morning flight to Lagos.
Mr NYSC kept in touch and only stopped talking about us getting married when he saw my wedding pictures online. Captain locked up and Architect resents me till today for not willing to stay back and give our relationship a chance.
I enjoyed my service year abeg. Left so many things out cos it was just an eventful year. Now happily married to a guy I met during service year but never even thought I'd end up with. Story for another day sha.
Na wah!!*side eyes*
