Aríiké: Radio Silence

It’s been a couple of months since I last heard from Aríiké and it’s hard to figure out why. She just went radio silent on me. Yet again Aríiké left me with more questions than answers.

In the first month, I literally became a stalker. I phished out her Facebook and Instagram profile but they haven’t been updated in years. She did upload on her instastory ever so often though, I think it’s her way of letting people know she was still alive.

I finally moved on and started seeing someone else. Bolatito reminded me of Aríiké a little, I believe it’s why I felt so attracted to her in the first place. But there would be no fairytale beginnings this time, sparks didn’t fly and Cupid didn’t throw a party. We just felt at ease with each other.

Business took me to Abuja and Bolatito joined me a couple of days later. Strangely, we connected more in Abuja as I began to notice just how fun, homely and beautiful she was. She only wears my T-shirt and shirt in the house and I find it freaking sexy. I think I’m just a man-ho really.

On one Friday, she said she’d be inviting a friend over and I agreed the extra company would be good for her. Someone came knocking on our door that evening and I offered to open it while Bolatito was cooking in the kitchen. I opened the door thinking it was room service but there stood Aríiké in front of me. I was too shocked to utter a word or move so I just kept staring at her. She looked even more beautiful than ever. “My love, who is it?”, Bolatito called out. “Damn you Aríiké, why are you always doing this to me”, I thought to myself.

Aríiké: Unanswered Questions

Remember how in the beginning, Adam couldn’t resist eating the forbidden fruit with Eve? Well, that is quickly becoming the story of Aríiké and me.

After what transpired on our second date, I decided I would never call Aríiké again, I wasn’t a fan of complications. But the problem was, I really needed to see her, I haven’t been able to think about anything else. She was as smooth as Tuscan leather and as soft as my heart.

As the horny gods of faith would have it, I saw Aríiké twice in the second week of March 2018. The first was a random sighting at GTB’s ATM hub. We exchanged pleasantries and moved on. Because that was what adults do, right?

The second time I saw Aríiké was at a wedding, all smiles and glow, effortless in every movement like a cat. Damn you Aríiké. No wonder the dude between my leg was so happy to see you. We chatted casually but all I wanted to do was rip off her dress and make insane love to her till we needed rehabilitation really.

I asked Aríiké for a dance when Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’ song started playing. I believe the song was meant for the bride and groom but we made it ours. She smelled so good and her body fitted perfectly in mine, we should be the bride and groom instead. She excused herself when the set was over. She came back grinning, saying she went to fake sickness to her family and she’s going to take an Uber home. I teased her about me now being an Uber driver. We both laughed like drunkards although I believe lust was the drink tonight.

The truth was, we didn’t make it past the underground parking lot before we were all over each other. Thank God for tinted glass and a good car stereo but who cares really. After a while she told me she had to call an Uber, I objected and asked to drop her home but she refused. Yet again Aríiké left me gasping for air. She was running this show.

The next time I’d see Aríiké was at a shopping mall, she had two lovely girls with her and there was a man beside her. Much older. I thought to myself; Aríiké I have to stop finding out things about you this way. Now I have more questions.

Aríiké

Do you remember the second time we met? It was the first time we made love. Our first tsunami as we like to call it, because of the sheer amount of fluids involved. I could have sworn you were pregnant and your water kept breaking.

I remember that night vividly, how can I forget? We were supposed to watch a movie at the cinema, it’s funny how Nigerian dates always end up in the cinema isn’t it? You were running late yet again, you were also two hours late for our first date. You joked that your knack for lateness will one day be of historical significance.



But when you finally showed, my God! What a sight you were. It’s easy to know you were there because the men’s heads started moving like a broken compass. I doubt I will ever be as proud as I felt when the men around took envious glances our way. They have a right to be jealous though, we were perfect. A Nubian princess like you and an Afro-Arabian prince like me, it’s not fair?



Do you remember the next morning? When your phone rang and you answered, “yes love. Okay love. I’ll be home soon, we wrapped up the meeting yesterday. I should leave my hotel in about an hour”. Aríiké that morning you broke me but still I couldn’t resist making love to you till noon. It was like my manhood no longer responded to my brain. Damn you Aríiké
