Tweet-Style Story Summary: A story showing the consequences that ensure when drugs and sex are mixed illicitly by millennials
Full Story: Date Rape Ola chuckled to himself and rubbed his hands. He was highly enthused. The patter of water from the bathroom as Tolu showered was beautiful music to him. Today was The day. D day. He chuckled to himself again at the pun. Today he would finally and successfully give Tolu his D. He had been trying unsuccessfully to have sex with her for eight months now since he won her over to be his girlfriend. He had been her friend for five months prior to that before escaping from the dreaded friend zone. He wiped imaginary sweat from his brow in remembrance of the tortuous and uncertain struggle. But Baba God had seen him to victory since that one occasion when she had honoured his incessant requests to visit and come to his house. They had made out languorously. She was as good as he had daydreamed. Nay, better even. She had agreed to date him a week later he recalled in triumph, relieving the glorious moment. Although she was a bit tipsy from the wine they were drinking when he asked. She hadn't rescinded the agreement later when sober though and his victory was confirmed. Since they started dating, he had been the perfect gentleman like Wyclef Jean as they say. Taken her everywhere. To dozens of eateries, to the cinema, where more of those languorous making out occurred, he recalled with a wink. He liked that word languorous. It rolled off the tongue like… And of course he had taken her to his place where even more petting and other fun activities had occurred. But although Tolu was the great love of his life,( he could tell just after eight months) and despite her being willing to try 'different’ 'fun’ activities with him, he had failed to 'pop the cherry’ he thought sadly. Nothing to be sad about. She was a virgin and that meant she was pure and fresh and new for him. Nice and tight. Only too tight and he couldn't bear to hurt her and had to stop each time she cried. It was good that she was untouched but why did good things have to come with difficulties? It was also another unfortunate blessing that he was well girthed and a bit sizey he thought modestly. But no matter he shrugged off the sad thought as the door creaked open and Tolu came out looking like a birthday present, deliciously wrapped in that kinky bright pink towel. She rushed to the bed with a squeal, jumping on him. He caught all 60 pounds of still partially wet, delicious flesh and kissed her, languorously. He stopped the kissing somewhere before he got to heaven. Around Mars and came back to earth. He had to remember the mission. Today had to be different. He didn't want to just make out and go like all the other days. Today was Doing day. The day. He would tear the nylon, pop the cherry and bite the apple. His good friend Jide had hooked him up with this hotel at Kpako that was pretty fresh and not too expensive to do the deed. He whistled the tune of Jeremih's birthday sex. Later he would take her out for a romantic dinner though he thought guiltily. He was a romantic afterall and a hotel no matter how clean wasn't the most romantic place to take your much loved girlfriend on her birthday. Then his junkie friend Dammy had hooked him up something that would solve the 'first time’ problem. He still remembered Dammy drawling in his slow-high voice 'make you give am four pills of refnol and that one bottle of codeine. She go sleep go and you go knack am like carpenter before she wake up.’ A guilty part of him had thought that this was uncomfortably akin to rape. But he had secured Tolu’s consent however. She would do anything for him, even be raped willingly. It couldn't be rape with her consent really. But they were called date rape drugs for a reason. Still, he shrugged, it would get the job done and he could enjoy a fantastic time and happy ever after sex afterwards Dammy had promised. Though, he wasn't the most reliable character. No matter. Whatever worked was good. Eight months waiting wasn't beans. He went to the fridge and got the packet of chilled chivita yoghurt. Tolu was rubbing her oils while he prepared the drink. He glimpsed her sleek, smooth backside and the last of his misgivings vanished. He needed to hit that. He had put in the four pills of ref Dr Dammy recommended and added the bottle of codeine. She rubbed the lotion over one of her generously ample buttocks slapped it, looking back slyly with a chuckle. She was teasing him. He added three more pills of ref on a second thought. He really needed to hit that, Today. By now she was done and seated on the bed flipping through the DStv channels. He brought the drink to her solemnly, holding it in two hands like a cupbearer delivering wine to the Pharaoh. She looked at him with one eyebrow raised and a slight and encouraging smile. ‘Aww Ola You’re always sweet when you want something.’ 'I wonder what that could be.’ he replied dryly. 'lol, smh’ She took the packet from him and took a long pull. He sat next to her solemnly, flipping through different channels and making small talk as she drank up. He wanted her to finish the drink before anything. A moment later, she handed him the empty packet of chivita and other things. He looked at her anxiously waiting for the drugs to start working. She leaned on him, stifling a yawn. Her eyelids were already drooping. He kissed her and she kissed him back lazily. He lay her carefully on the pillow. 'Sleep my princess. You will be a full woman by the time you wake.’ She murmured something unintelligible then nodded off. He took some cash from his jean pockets and went to get condoms. Time to finish the mission and enter paradise. This time he wouldn't be bothered by the cries of the perturbed angels at the gate. On the way back from getting his condom, Olu was beset by policemen. 'This one be like yahoo boy. Search him phone.’ ‘Rubbish boy. Na here dem dey lodge na’ another one added. He was about to lose it and abuse them when he remembered he had an unfinished mission he had to get back to. He hurriedly offered them the eight hundred naira change to let him go saying he was in a hurry. Wrong move it turned out as they then thought he had something to hide. In the end, they wanted to go detain him in their station despite finding nothing on his phone. He had to withdraw from the ATM and give them a ten thousand naira bribe to let him go despite not committing any crime. He couldn't afford to be detained. It had been a while and he looked back to the hotel, 4 star anxiously. The policemen were very friendly after collecting the money and wanted to give him their number 'in case he had any more future problems he could call them to help.’ Well wasn't that nice of them? He politely took it and started hurrying back to the room. When he got there, the receptionist asked him. 'Your room has been cleaned, right?’ ‘No o’ he answered. 'I thought I saw Chidi going there with mop.’ he heard her asking the bar man as he hurried up but was in too much of a hurry really pay attention. When he got upstairs, he opened the door and guffawed. The sheets were rumpled and there was blood on it though Tolu was still fast asleep. He stood dazed trying to process, to fathom what had happened. ‘That was fantastic baby though I barely remember it. I could tell it was good however. Come here baby. Come give me another more memorable one.’ she beckoned to him sleepily. Then it hit him. The cleaner who had come to clean, he thought in horror. Chidi had not just come to clean the room. ‘Baby c’mere. Tolu’s drowsy voice came to him as if from a distance. Dammy had been right. The drugs had worked. Just not the way he would have imagined. He had to be strong. He hurriedly took off his shirt and joined her on the bed. Hopefully she wouldn't notice anything amiss in this state. 'sorry I hurt you baby.’ No it's okay. I ache a bit. A delicious ache but you were fantastic. I wanna go again.’ Damn!!! Ola thought. Chidi the cleaner was fantastic. But there was nothing to be done about that now. He very well couldn't tell her what really happened. Telling a girl she got raped by Chidi the cleaner was a less than ideal birthday present. He definitely wouldn't do that now. Maybe never. In fact only one thing to do now. He pulled her closer. 'Show me what you got baby.’ she drawled sexily.’ ‘I will baby’. I’ll show you an even better time than...than I did before.

    Beautifully structured. Sad though… since he has taken up the burden of keeping the secret that will likely be a strong ground for future breakup; not to talk of the long term consequences of Tolu’s life as a ‘user’ (I.e. refnol). Keep it up🙌🙌👍👍👍

      That’s one lesson. Another is that certain acts should be avoided because they are risky and likely to go horribly wrong no matter how much permission we have or how well intentioned we are. Cheers 😁👍
