We became very close. As a poor guy, I was very loyal but she wanted me to be the man in the relationship. Each time we meet her friends, she will be like, “Baby please buy me this… buy me that…”. It is her money but she paints a picture that I am the one spending on her. She buys clothes that I never would have looked at because of the outrageous amount it would cost and says I bought it for her as a gift.
She rented a 2 bedroom flat for me and each time she comes around, she washes my clothes and cooks for me. She suggested that I become independent, that I should quit my N25,000 salary job and start my own business. She budgeted N15million for my business. I started asking myself what’s going on? She hasn’t even met my parents. I haven’t even proposed to her. I went ahead and resigned.
We started preparing for my first business trip, buying of Visa and all that. She finally transferred the money to my account. That afternoon, I came to the bank to transfer the money to my domiciliary account, I waited for a long time.
Just when it was about to be transferred, my phone rang and it was a friend I owe N400 who woke me up from the dream…
