C10 Dinner goes wrong

Episode Ten

Theme: Dinner goes wrong

Arike’s POV

My jaw dropped completely.

"Do you need a shock absorber?" He grabbed the remote and tuned into a football station.

I could hardly believe what Adedayo just said about Bamidele. I bursted into laughter as I settled in one of the couches.

"What's so funny?" He gritted with a huge frown on his face.

"Bamidele is gay." I laughed.

"How can he be gay?"

"Oh! You think it's funny?" He hissed

"Oh course! I know you're just making things up so I would stay away from Bamidele."

"Why on earth would I come up with such a thing if it's not true. You should know me better than this, Arike!" He said with annoyance in his tone.

I stood up from the couch and went to sit beside him.

"Ade, are you being serious right now? Like Bamidele is gay?"

"If you think I really joking then ask him whenever he comes. Well I am sure he would deny ever being gay but I am a solid witness."

Adedayo was damn serious. What the heck?! Bamidele is Gay! But why has he being on my neck lately?! I stood up and began to pace.

"Seems like someone is heartbroken!" He whistled.

"I am not heartbroken! I am just shocked."

"I warned you not to get attached to him but you didn't listen to me."

"Why didn't you tell me before now?"

"Well..he begged me not to disclose it to you on the agreement that he would tell you himself. But that bastard didn't make an attempt because he claimed to not be gay anymore. But I am sure he's trying to be bi-sexual since he likes you."

"This is unbelievable!" I am beginning to get goosebumps all over my body.

"Well you have to believe it."

"Is that why you hate him so much?"

"That son of a devil-"

"Dayo!" I cautioned him

"Sorry....I don't like him. I hate him!" He spat.

"Because he is gay?"

"Maybe..but -"

"Any other reason?"

"Yes I have many reasons to hate that fool."


"Back then in school, he asked me to be his girlfriend! Can you just imagine?!"

My eyes widened again. "What?!" Jaw dropped.

"Yes.. remember that year I came to your hostel with a bloodshot eyes?"

"Yes..yes...you said it was an accident that happened on your way back from school." I answered.

"Well..I lied. Bamidele and his boys beat me up because I refused to date him."

"Oh my God!" I gasped out.

"Bamidele had some gay buddies, it was like a secret group."

"Ade,why did you hide all these things from me?"

"He threatened to kill me. I was so scared of what he would do to me. But now I am not afraid aymore. That jerk doesn't deserve to be a lawyer. He is very terrible person." He hissed.

We lapsed into silence. I was lost in thought. Bamidele is gay and even made a hit in Adedayo. The sound of doorbell interrupted my train of thought.

"Talk of the devil... I'll get the door." Dayo stood up but I stopped him.

"I will get the door." I said.

"Your wish." He mumbled before sitting back on the couch. I went to the door.

"Hi." He greeted

"Good Evening Bamidele." I replied.

"You must be really mad at me."


"Sorry I am late. I had to -"

"Take your dog to the clinic." I completed his intended statement. "I got your message." I feigned a smile.

"I brought some groceries you might need." He handed me two bags.

"You shouldn't have bothered yourself. I...Erm -"

Should I let him in? God! I don't want to be judgemental but I still can't accept Bamidele's sexuality.

"Won't you let me in?"

"Oh! I am sorry...come in." I stepped aside for him to walk into my home.

Bamidele was surprised to see Dayo.

"Well you didn't tell me we would be having him around for dinner." He whispered to me.

"Sorry..." I mouthed.


"Stop whispering behind my back." Dayo said.

I cleared my throat. "Please take a seat."

"Good Evening Dayo." Bamidele greeted.

"And what's so good about the evening?" Dayo replied in a harsh tone.

"Dayo!" I cautioned.

"What?! There's no need to entertain him just ask him the questions you wanna ask to confirm what I told you. I am sure he won't lie about it."

"What are you talking about?" Bami asked.

"What's your -"

"Dayo please not now." I cut him off.

"Well...it seems like I am not welcomed here. I will just take my leave." He stood up from the couch.

"You don't have to leave coward." Dayo laughed.

"I am not a coward!" Anger lit up on Bamidele expression. Dayo was pushing him too hard and I have to stop him before they both end up fighting.

"Then why try to leave?"

"You are like this because you don't you like seeing me with Arike. Are you jealous?"

"Stop acting like a child." Dayo stood up to face him.

"And why should I be jealous of someone like you?!" Dayo snorted. "I hate you! I can't stand seeing your face!" Dayo yelled.

"Dayo...that's enough." He jerked free when I tried to hold him.

"Just look at you... putting up a facade of a good man whereas you are a devil."

"Dayo,that's enough!" I screamed. "I know the truth about you." I mumbled to Bamidele. I recognized the look of understanding in his expression. He knows what I meant by the truth.

"That I used to be gay."

I nodded.

"Used to? Or you've chosen to be bi-sexual now."

"That's not true!" I snarled.

"Hey who gave you the right to raise your voice at me?!"

I stopped Dayo before he could charge at Bamidele what was ready for him too.

"I know you hate me because I asked you to be my girlfriend. But I already apologized to you."

"I don't need your lame apologies!"

"So what should I do?"

"Stay away from Arike, you gay bastard! And if you are not careful I would sue you and write a petition again you for being gay."

"I am not gay anymore."

"Dayo....calm down."

"Don't fucking tell me to calm down!"

"Can you stop being aggressive over this issue! And let's talk like matured minds."

"I don't need to talk to him. Just tell him to leave. Jeez! I still don't know why you invited him to your house." He snarled in anger.

"I'm sure if I wasn't here he would have tried to rape you." He hissed.

"I wouldn't do something like that to her or any woman!" Bamidele countered.

Dayo laughed. "Oh! Convince me! What about those boys you raped when they refused to be gay!"

Those words are terrible to the ears and it made Bamidele silent.

"Am I wrong?!"

"I...I..." Bamidele stuttered.

"Can't you talk?!"

I turned to Dayo. He was taking things too far and personal.


"Tell him to leave!"

"If you say anymore words ,I will throw you out of my house."

"Like seriously?" He asked surprisingly.

"Try me." I said with serious face. Them he sat back on the couch.


"I'll take my leave now." He grabbed his jacket and walked out before I could utter any word.

I didn't miss the look of embarrassment on his face. Adedayo really crushed Bamidele with his words.
