Last night was lit. That simple phrase was all she needed to utter and my attention was seized. I was fully distracted. I was busy but the way she started the gist got me. No, she wasn’t talking to me in particular but she was loud enough.
”I haven’t had the kind of fun I had last night. It was massive. Even the places we visited, especially our final destination of the night. If I was told I would be visiting them anytime soon. The neighborhood is highbrow, every edifice was tastefully built. They are some kind of statement.
I counted nothing less than twenty girls already positioned in different angles of the posh compound. Some dancing, some simply sitting down and gulping some drinks and some ‘pinned’ to the wall. They were all clad in some familiar outfits, those killer outfits that leave nothing for your imagination. The guy who took me there and whom I was meeting for the first time appeared to be popular in that circle. His arrival disrupted activity albeit shortly. All eyes were on him and me as we strut the garden to the corner that had more number of guests. I love everything my eyes fell on. This is the kind of environment I need to be associated with and the caliber of men I need to be associated with not the one Naira boys that will come with truck load of promises. Mehn, I ate, drank and danced as if I had known this guy and his guys forever. I was totally sold to the moment. I think I overheard our host mention something in the line that should there be need to make use of a room, that he had prepared about 3 of them for our convenience. I didn’t pay attention and it didn’t cross my mind that I might find myself in the room either. However, I noticed some of the guys disappearing from the garden their ladies and reappearing 30 minutes later, looking exhausted and uninterested in the music and other activity. Soon it was my turn, ”my guy” whispered that he would like to gist with me in private, he didn’t allow room for questioning as he put my palm in his and led me towards the building everyone seemed to be visiting. We came out two hours later to see the place half empty. I did not know I had bruises until this morning when the quantity of alcohol in my system had gone down.”
I didn’t want listen to the rest of the gist once I understood what she meant by her ”night was lit.” I pushed open the door and walked past the two ladies discussing their sexual adventures with total strangers. When I turned to look at their faces, I could tell they were wondering how much of their gist I had listen to.
