Helen was a girl I knew in camp as a fellow corper many years ago.She was one of two pretty girls I saw having a gossip on the return leg of a marathon walk. I invited myself into their discussion and was fortunately welcomed.We yarned all the way to camp.
In the evening and for much of the night we got seriously acquainted and even made out (kiss and play), all the fatigue not withstanding.We were to have hot passionate sex at least twice before camp broke.To most of us the posting that came was a sham. Helen got redeployed with one phone call and I, despite all efforts at redeployment ended up in the middle of a place called No-where.
Of course there was no GSM at the time. And that was the beginning of my long, frustrating and fruitless search for Helen the microbiology graduate. All I had to remind me of her in later years was a photograph we took with the camp commandant (a Major) standing in between us.The rest had systematically disappeared in my home over the years.
Fast forward to present day.I had through my lawyer recently served a notice of total war on my bank of several years. The account officer determined to make peace intimated me that her new boss would like to meet me to which I reluctantly concurred. Then, in walked Helen. Of course instantly I forgot the purpose of visit. After the initial shouts and all that you are so this and and you are so that, we are embracing, we are handling and we are kissing passionately.My hand was all over her to which she responded invitingly. I was so thrilled I only managed to restrain myself from closing down my business for the day and telling everyone to beat it.
Now, here I am looking at her sms invitation to her temporary company guest house accommodation.I recognize there are issues on my side and even weightier issues on her side.If I choose to go, the only way to avoid having sex is leaving my manliness behind.But If I dont I will not only be letting a close friend down but the huge void that has persisted in my life all these years on account of her absence will remain and might even get wider.
What will you do if you were in my shoes? If you are a Nigerian, male and under 35yrs of age, please do not feel compelled to respond to this post.Not even if you are a moderator on NL. Thank you.
