Funke ‘s heart began to race when she hung up the phone. She had called the number back only to discover it was Tobi’s ex, Doris, who had sent the message to her. Apparently, Tobi had not stopped seeing her even after he claimed to have broken up with her. He had also lied to Doris that he and Funke were only just friends.
“Why did you lie to me about Doris?” Funke confronted when Tobi finally showed up later that night. “Lie? What are you talking about?” he asked, trying his best not to look guilty. “See for yourself “, she replied throwing her phone at him. “It’s not what you think ” he finally said, trying to calm her down after reading the message. “She’s lying to you. She’s just doing all these because she wants me back but I refused to take her”, he said. Funke knew all to well that he was lying but she had no proof so she let it go and that was how the emotional roller coaster began.
Every other day it was one lie after another, she would stumble on different messages between Tobi and Doris on his phone during a few of her snooping sessions. On a few occasions, she even came across a few female names she hadn’t seen before but each time she confronted him, he would deny it and find a way to beg her to stay. Gradually, it became clear to her that everything she was warned about before she started dating him was true, she knew he wasn’t right for her but each time she tried to leave, he would beg like his life depended on it.
One day, she went to use the bathroom and noticed some yellowish discharge had stained her underwear, she had also been feeling some pain in her lower abdomen that day which she earlier ignored. It suddenly dawned on her that something might be wrong, so she rushed to the hospital to get tested. When the results finally came out, the doctor called her into a side room to talk to her. “Hi, Funke “, said the doctor who was an old friend of Funke ‘s. “Hi, Trish”, Funke replied. “Can you tell me the results already? I’m so nervous right now.” Trish paused for a while wondering how to break the news to Funke , “I’m afraid these tests results show that you have Gonorrhoeae “, she finally replied.
