Wahala don land. Part 1.

This my nice nice don land me inside concrete wahala! Years ago, when I was at "so and so" university, I happened to be friends with one girl, which I believed at that time to be my age mate. Well, we did the usual things that foriegners do in a new country, we drank coffee. That was all. I was invited once for dinner at her place and that was about it. I lost touch with her and I never heard from her again untill last week. Infact, na my bobo cause all this wahala. Na so oh, for a couple of days, my phone kept ringing, an unknown number.........an unknown country......... well, my instincts told me to ignore it, after all, it was not family and I was 100% sure that it was none of my close friends. Na so everytime the phone rang and it was that suspicious number, I ignored it, untill................oga aproko come notice me.
Oga: Isn't that your phone?
Waffarian: Ehhhhhhhhhn?
Oga: Your phone has been ringing........aren't you going to see who it is?
I pick up my phone and put it down.
Oga: Who is it?
Waffarian: I don't know...........its a strange number..........
Oga: So answer it.
At this point, Oga is looking at me suspiciously, I decide to answer it (against my better judgement) before im go think say I dey do mago mago.
Waffarian: waffarian........
wahala: Hello...............waffarian?
Waffarian: Yes?..........
wahala: Its Martina
Waffarian: Who?
wahala: Martina
Waffarian:...............Oh hello Marcia.........how are you?(i have no clue who it is still)
wahala: No, no, it is Martina, you know, we studied in "so and so" university together.
Waffarian:Oh............hello, wow! its been so long! sorry, I could not recognise your voice! it must be 4 yrs, right?
wahala:(laughs), yes, it has really been long, anyway.........(silence)
Waffarian:Ehhhhhhhhn, do you still live here?
wahala: No, i now live in Greece, moved there about two yrs ago
Waffarian: Okay..........
All this time I dey think, what the hell does she want? the whole conversation was just too awkward
wahala: well, i just called to say i will be coming to "so and so country " next week
Waffarian: Okay..............(silence)........ehhhhhhn, do you want to meet up for coffee?
wahala: Yes.
Waffarian:Okay...........well, call me when you get here then..........its been too long.......
wahala:Okay, bye.
So she rings off, and in the pit of my stomach, I just know something is wrong
Oga: Who was it?
Waffarian: Martina
Oga: who?
Waffarian: You know Martina from so and so university.............I wonder how she got my number after all these yrs...............very strange
Oga: How nice! what is she doing now?
Waffarian: I wonder what she wants.........
Oga: why does she have to want anything? she used to be your friend right?
Waffarian: Well, she was the one that cut off contact with me...........I called her a couple of times while we were still in school and she never wanted to meet up...........I wonder what she wants............
Oga: Why are you always suspicious of people?
Na so, I forgot about the whole incident untill two days ago.........when the phone calls started again.
