Although Jamil had broken up with Ronke and was already dating Catherine, as most couples do even after they break up, they remained physically intimate. So that weekend when Ronke called Jamil and told him that she needed a place to stay for a couple of nights, Jamil was kind enough to play host to her, besides Catherine wasn't in town, and of course there was the added benefit of sex with the ex.
And when a day to Catherine's return, Jamil told Ronke she would have to leave and she didn't complain, it was a happy surprise for him. Willingly Ronke packed her bag and left but around midnight called Jamil; she had forgotten some things at his place. He told her she could come and pick them up and she drove down. Then she told Jamil that she was craving Suya and pleaded with him to come with her to buy some, promising they would go in her car, he wouldn't even have to leave the car and she would bring him back home. Jamil, being the nice ex boyfriend threw on a Tshirt over his boxers and jumped into her car.
This was almost 1am on a week night. They drove from his Ajah home to the express. As they approached Agungi/Osapa London, Ronke said she was hearing a noise coming from the back tire and slowed down so that Jamil could check it out. The minute Jamil stepped out of the car, Ronke stepped hard on the throttle and flew away into the night, taking along with her Jamil's phones and wallet.
Two days later Jamil recounted to us how he had to walk from Osapa London to wayyyy inside Ajah at 1am, in his boxers and Tshirt, with no money or phone to call a friend. He got home around 4am, infuriated, exhausted and almost half dead with cold and fear. We empathized with him but we ladies couldn't stop laughing our heads off; haven't you heard not to mess with a woman scorned?
I've always been too mentally lazy to plot revenge against an ex but I've seen many happen. Ranging from slashing tires, to getting them fired at work (you really need to be careful the things you whisper to your lover when love is "shacking" y'all. It doesn't always remain sweet forever and the greatest ammunition you have against someone sometimes is their secrets). But the one I heard today took the cake. It a typical case of chopping off your finger to make someone else bleed.
Ada's boyfriend of three years suddenly dumped her. Now not only did he dump her, he started dating someone else almost immediately. And then to rub salt on her wound, got married to this new squeeze a few months later. Ada had been severely heartbroken from the moment he broke things off, but to hear that he got married to this girl barely four months after they started dating, five months after he broke up with her, after dating her for three years, she thought she would die!
Then Sammy comes into the picture. Ada has no feelings for him, no interest, no attraction, no affection. But Sammy is determined, so he continues to show up. Even in the face of Ada's disdain and disinterest, Sammy proposes.
Aha! Now we're talking. Ada readily says yes, but only because she wants to spite her ex. You remember her ex is married, right? Well, wedding plans are underway and everyone close to Ada has noticed how much she loathes her fiancé. She screams when the phone rings and its him on the screen, she constantly complains about every single thing he does and represents, and to make matters worse, she cannot stand his touch; so when they have sex she's first got to ensure that she's well and truly wasted, alcohol is her new besto. Still, Ada soldiers on with the wedding plans.
It makes no sense to us why she thinks this would matter to her ex, we doubt if he would even notice. Now, we understand the idea of gloating when one is getting married after being dumped. But then to do so, mainly to spite the ex, and to someone whose entire being you find intensely irritating... Come on, that's just a case of drinking poison and hoping it kills someone else!
All accounts in this post are factual, and all names have been changed. I'm almost certain we've all been hurt before. Some of us accept it as "God's plan", or leave vengeance for God. Some however choose to give God some assistance and take matters into their own hands. Have you ever made actual calculated efforts to get back at an ex who really hurt you? Please give us the juicy deets; the plan, the plots and the ending. Or has an ex done you strong thing like Jamil above? SPILLLLLLLLLLL. LOL.
What do you think about what Ada is doing? *when we discussed it, I said "on the bright side, they say it's better for a lady to marry a man who loves her a lot more than she loves him, so maybe things might actually work out well for Ada and her marriage"*. What do you think?
