OGECHI AND I # EPISODE 26#

Ogechi and I EPISODE: 26
***
“I went with Ck everywhere he went, Ogechi continued the
story. Accommodation was made available for me in an
estate belonging to the owner of the recording label Ck was
under. That same recording label signed a contract with me
later on when they found me to be an asset. My name began
ringing a bell in America and people started speculating that
Ck was my man, while others said it was his manager. The
rumor that Ck was my man spread widely that Ck himself
sought to make it a reality. He wasn’t expecting me to be
though at all, so he didn’t think he needed to pull so much
string to get me to play along with him. I told him about
Prince Charming which he already knew about but that didn’t
mean anything to him. Little by little, Ck got really serious
about making me his girl and did a lot of romantic stuffs just
to win my heart.
He bought me flowers and showered me with gifts
unceasingly. When we go to occasions together, the press
normally addressed us as soon to be couples and Ck would
concur just to put me in a position where I would have no
other choice but agree to his proposal. For some reason, I
never had any feelings for Ck. Not even a feeling I had to
fight. I just liked him because of his personality. His
charisma was adorable, he is a great singer, and I felt like I
owed him for bringing me to the height I found myself then.
He however thought I would repay him by becoming his girl,
but my love for Jesusboy was still burning inside me like
wild fire. I wished it was Jesusboy in Ck’s position; then my
life would have been complete.
But then, the things Ck kept doing got more and more
interesting until it found its way to my heart. My friends
advised me to go with Ck who’s a star like me and forget my
Prince Charming who was still struggling to arrive. They also
told me that his arrival at the top wasn’t certain because not
everyone who embarked on that journey made it there. They
said many things to disqualify my Prince Charming but I
refused to pay attention to them. Anytime I remembered how
far I had gone with him, I couldn’t bear the thought leaving
him. I know he will make it one day. Even if he doesn’t, I’ll
gladly share all I have with him. After all, what is wealth
without love?
I remembered giving him N100, 000 back then to start up
something with and pay back on a set date. He paid back on
the exact same date we agreed on. After then he was able to
foot his bills unlike when I first met him as a homeless
fellow in another man’s town. I was glad to have been the
angel who rescued him from the cruelty of hardship. He has
valued me since then like nothing in the world because he
truly knows my worth and how much I love him. Ck might be
a nice guy, but he may at some point think that he picked me
up from some studio in Nigeria and made me what I am
today. He may even rub it on my face sometimes. I
remember having a misunderstanding with Prince Charming
back then, no matter how much he yelled, he still apologized
afterwards for yelling, even if I was the one at fault. As time
went on, we rarely misunderstood each other anymore, and
saying I’m sorry to each other was as easy as saying I love
you. We never crossed over into a new day with unresolved
issues. I’m used to that kind of guy already and I wasn’t
ready to try out another kind of guy. It took me years to build
what I and Prince Charming share and I’m not ready to start
all over again with someone else when the first hasn’t ended.
Everyone got uncomfortable with my decision to hold on to
my feelings for Prince Charming until fate permitted us to
meet and be together again. Ck and his manager particularly
took that really personal. I bet they would have been tempted
to shut me out if I hadn’t secured a contract with the label
before then. However, they all let it be. But I could see
something whenever I looked at Ck’s eyes. I also heard that
same thing in his voice whenever he spoke to me. He still
hoped that I would come around one day. We however played
along as soon to be couples before the press and the people
but knew between ourselves that we had nothing going
between us.
The familiarity between I and Ck got a little intense. We had
come to agree that we would only act in accordance with the
speculations of the press and the people but then, our
constantly spending time together began to provoke
unwanted feelings. I know Ck still wanted me. I was the only
one who now had to fight such feelings. It got to a point that
I couldn’t spend a day without seeing or talking to Ck. Of
course he was the only guy that was close to me, so I called
on him when there was any matter that needed the attention
of a guy except those that had to do with my feelings, and I
was gradually getting there. Whenever I thought of Prince
Charming, I would call on Ck, thinking that would help
stabilize my feelings at the moment but it ended up trying to
get me to replace the preferable with the available.
I would never do that! I kept telling myself. I opened up
myself to Ck, who gave me the best treats ever. I must
confess, Prince Charming had never given me such treats as
Ck did, probably because he couldn’t afford it. So when Ck
started doing all these to me, those things my friends had
told me about my Prince not being liable to succeed as a star
despite his gifts and talents began to ring in my head, and I
wondered if he was ever going to give me the kind of life Ck
had given me so far. I mean, I owe my fame and wealth to
him. I shook those thoughts off my head and still placed
Prince Charming in the tenderest part of my heart.
Nevertheless, I decided to give Ck a try, not because I was
considering making him a replacement for my Prince but
because I was missing the company of a man like hell.
Ck maximized that opportunity and spoiled me with gifts and
treats which I cherished so much and couldn’t stop desiring
for more. Ck sort of thought I was trying to get Prince
Charming off my mind and was really helping me to achieve
that. He never did anything that would make my Prince
appear like the better man among them both. He wanted to
beat my Prince in all ramifications. He was wealthier,
famous, exposed and now wanted to add things like; more
loving, more caring, more respectable and more serious to
the list. There was no end to what Ck did in order to get me
to see him more deserving of me than Jesusboy. I hate to say
this but it worked. I was gradually falling for Ck but all the
while convincing myself that I wasn’t.
Well, as long as Ck continued treating me like a queen, I was
okay. It went on and on till he asked me to join him on a trip
to the Bahamas. I consented without a second thought. I had
been hearing about the Bahamas and watching people go
there in the movies. So I quickly obliged when an opportunity
to go there came. Not that I couldn’t afford to go there on my
own. Of course I had money enough to do that, but it feels a
lot more different when it is a guy asking you to go there
with him. We reached the Bahamas and settled. Took a tour
around and visited a few places we could before returning the
heart of the area. It was so much fun there. We danced
together and even got recognized by some folks there who
knew us to be celebrities. They interviewed us briefly and
still considered us soon to be couples, which we didn’t object
to. We got all caught up in the enjoyment there that we nearly
tarried just to groove all night. Around 1am Ck drew very
near to me and told me to come with him to somewhere. I
said okay and we left. As we walked to where he was taking
me he held onto me with his right arms across my back.
Well, I also held onto him in like manner with my left arm
while we walked away together like newlyweds. He led me to
a room illuminated by florescent bulbs and richly furnished.
The thing that stood out the most in the room was the heart
shaped bed which was covered with red linen from Egypt.
After we got in he locked the door with a smart card only he
had access to and inserted it into his pocket. I couldn’t
believe it had gotten to that. Was this really happening? I
thought to myself. How the hell was I supposed to get him to
change his mind? How was I supposed to stop it from
happening? There was absolutely no way I could stop him. It
definitely happened.
