JUST A FRIEND

#ShortStories #Friend #Retaliation #Relationship


“Dan my man” A voice said

Ada watched a man walk up to her boyfriend and greets him cordially

“Who is this?” He asked

She felt butterflies in her stomach. Anxious, she tightened her grip on Dan’s hand and extended her right hand to greet the man with a smile. She felt Dan’s hard gazed and heard him say

“Just a friend”

Her heart sank, she said nothing. The feeling of rejection made it hard to ask about his new claim to “friendship” and instead chose to play it cool. Two months later Dan broke up with her. As she expected. It’s been a count down for her since he made that introduction.

8 years later

“Ada, I’m sorry for the hundredth time. Please accept me even as just a friend?” Dan begged

She exhaled. She was done with this past and wanted nothing of it in her present. But here he was denying her of her peace. Disturbing her present and she wanted none of it “Sure. You’re forgiven?” Ada said.

“One last thing. Join me at KJ this Saturday for Lunch. Please”

She felt he was starting to push his luck but was not ready to start another argument. It was a harmless lunch after all.

“Fine” she said

Saturday 2pm as they leave KJ

“Aah! Ada!” A short lady said as she dragged a man’s hand and hurried to hug Ada. Ada could not believe how plum her once skinny friend looked

“Cynthia! You look good gurl!” Ada said, trying to mimic her friends excitement

“Babe, meet my friend Ada. The owner of KuTech” the bubbly lady said to the man

They all shared pleasantries

“Who’s he?” She whispered out loud and twitched her eye towards Dan

It felt like a flash back. The day Dan rated her so little. Ada looked at Dan, smiled at her friend and responded

“Just a friend”

She watched his mood changed and chuckled with her as he politely excused himself from the group.

  1. Burn!!! I’m not gloating but eight years is a long time to go back to someone who treated you like a nobody. Glad she realised her worth. Yup! Just a friend Dan

      Some ladies fall right back into the arms of such men because of many reasons. But I am glad she didn’t.

      Much love sis❀🌷
