I was upset. “How can you ask me to come early and not come early? You’ve wasted my time” I told her. “Oh! You were able to study something with that time right? So it’s helped you” she replied. “No! I could’ve done that at home. I did my best to come early because of you. I didn’t come to study” I was getting upset for real. “Ok, sorry, I won’t even ask you to come early and teach me again” She said. “Ok, that’s fine”.
I could tell she was hit by my attitude. I was basically disagreeing with her on every matter. I would be sweating within, scared I would lose her friendship but I stood my grounds anyway. She would usually get upset with me, something I used to be so scared of. I got used to it.
She realized I had changed, she began acting differently. She began doing and saying certain things that were interesting… Was it working??
She likes me, she likes me not
Remember I said I learnt a lot from that website? I also learnt how to know when someone has feelings for you. No I won’t teach you, this is a story not a tutorial, get back to your reading and forget about it!
Everything I was doing felt like deliberately throwing away all my chances of being with her. It felt like I was doing the opposite of everything that will make her like me. But the opposite of that happened!
– “Hello” she said on the phone, she called me.
– “Hey, how’re you”
– “I am fine, you?”
– “I am good…”
– “good to know” I said, and waited for her to ask me for something. She would usually call only when she needed something or had something important to say. For the first time, it was different!
– “ok…” she said. There was a bit of silence after that. I almost asked her if she wanted anything.
“I just called to check up on you. I miss you.” She said. Wooowww!!! You the man!! I was jumping in my head. I calmed myself down and responded coolly.
“Really? That’s nice to hear“ I said and giggled a bit.
“Yeah, strange right?” she chuckled.
We talked for a while, but I made sure I was the one that ended the call. “Hey, I’m a bit busy. Let’s talk in the evening ok” I told her. “Ok that’s fine” She replied. I was really happy but I controlled myself and said to myself “it’s just really nothing, don’t get too excited. She still doesn’t love you yet”.
Remember when I said I was counting the number of calls, hers against mine?? I deleted my call logs and started over. Gradually, the number of times she called me increased. As it did, I reduced mine even further. Things were turning around.
One Saturday morning, I was going for a program with my friends. I was now good at playing the guitar so it was a normal thing. When we arrived, I got a call from Naana. I hadn’t called her the whole day, I had been so busy trying to get to the program on time.
– “Hello Jeff”
– “Hi, I’m at a program right now. Can I call you later?” I said. This time I wasn’t making up stuff. I guess the universe was moving in my direction to make me get her faster.
