Jack soon got himself an apartment in town and off campus. It meant we wouldn’t get to see each other as often as we used to. I was always welcome to his place but he was a stickler for propriety. Blame it on him being too much of a mommy’s boy but he could never agree to my spending more time than was necessary at his place. So I only came during the weekends.

Exams were by the corner and I had a lot of catching up to do with my studies, I had never been as studious as I should and it was beginning to take its toll. Dating someone with such a roller coaster attitude was beginning to tell on me. I was always worried about the next probable cause of a quarrel between I and Jack because that would mean weeks of silence. When you love a man like I loved Jack, you never stopped to think or consider, you just acted. Even if some of those actions were detrimental to your well being.

I was obsessed with Jack, I thought of him so often I couldn’t sleep. Because I couldn’t sleep, I read and prepared for my exams, even though it was proving such an arduous task. I was lonely most times, although i had friends. I was suspicious of them so I began to distance myself from them.

Jack had managed to settle down in his new apartment. At twenty-seven, this was the first time he was ever living apart from his parents.
Weekends when we weren’t having one of our couple tiffs became quite special to me as I went to spend time over at his place. I did all that was required of a girlfriend and more. He often said, he didn’t miss home so much because of me and I glowed from comments like this.

I don’t know why, but I felt inferior I guess, being the one who was lucky to be with him. It made me feel like I had to do a lot to keep him and this I did even at the expense of my own comfort. We had another argument before I left his place, it had been so bad that I felt our relationship had surely ended.

I tried to scale through the exams without breaking down even after all the reading binges I’d been on to meet up with the course outline. By the end of the semester, I had a new friend, Richard. He was a friend in church who always looked rather sickly but was cool all the same.
