Back In Time

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always been the center of attraction because of my looks. I used to easily win any competition with the prefaces ‘Most finest, most beautiful, most well dressed’. Anything with ‘most’ that had to do with looks, I’d sweep it home.
.
Naturally people always wondered why someone like my Ade was my best friend. I’ve always had to answer this question and constantly search for the right words to justify my decision at every ask but I never could so I stopped answering. I just liked the guy dammit.
.
Don’t misquote me, Ade was an okay guy. Okay maybe he wasn’t. Ade used to be one of those ruffians in primary school, he’d come to school in the morning with a sparkling clean uniform and leave in the afternoon like the uniform hadn’t been washed for days. He was always dirty.
.
He wasn’t the most handsome guy neither, although if you looked past his chubby face and mucus filled nose, you’d see a fine handsome man struggling probably with too much adrenaline. I used to think he had ADHD, that was the boy I always saw when I looked at him.
.
We were quite the opposite and I loved the irony.
.

Remember how we got separated in the university for a while, well I barely got through secondary school by putting up with Ade’s rough ways and I had promised myself that once I was in the university he had to go, I wanted to start afresh. A girl of my stature and facial looks deserved more than a ruffian, so I broke up with him.

He promised me he’d change and he never really thought of doing anything about his looks and ways because he thought I loved him cause he was different. He was probably right.
.
The next time I saw Ade, he was a totally different guy. He was athletically built, the life of the party and the captain of his school’s basketball team.
.
I myself wasn’t an easy target, I had graduated from winning ‘the most everything facial’ to winning ‘Ms hourglass, Most sort after and socialite awards’ but the moment we saw each other again, we became inseparable once more albeit after weeks of begging for forgiveness.
.
Now you know their present and their background story, stay tuned for the wicked part.
