Friendzoned Felicia

let me tell you a story about Felicia.


Sheis a final year student, everyone’s sidekick, the girl next door, an embodiment of beauty and brains. However, she has been quite unlucky with or maybe unschooled on what it takes to have a stable romantic relationship. she was what you would regard as the “keeper” but she was never kept.

Months to her final exams, she decided to take up a job in order to keep herself busy. Moreover, she needed to make some money. did I mention that Felicia is a bag full of phobias? in fact, one major reason she took up the job was fear of  not getting a job after school and the fear of not having a skill.

As school drew to a close Fel (short for Felicia) got better at her job. and then she met a guy. Cyril was plum with a dark brown skin to die for, eyes that popped when his face lit with a smile, not so much of a fine and fashion forward dude but he was extremely intelligent.He was assigned to work directly with her. At first, she was not sure if she had any skill she could teach the newbie because he seemed to have had more experience in the field than she does. Cyril has been working in their line of the job for 6 years as a volunteer, rose to the position of heading 3 departments. Cyril and Felicia bonded in and out of the office. in fact, you might as well say they were best of friends.Overtime, affections began to grow. Felicia had an incline that Cyril was head over heels in love with her but he was worried she might not take his proposal serious. He told his friends and their mutual friends about his feelings for Fel (because according to him, the friends might prepare the way for him to pop the question). he finally did and she regarded it as awkward and weird for really close friends to become lovers. Cyril was quite a romantic(mark I said quite)  and Fel was a sucker for romantic words written down. he wrote a blog post about her and how he felt about her.

Take peep at what he wrote:

Dear Blog, Dearest Friend (LOVE)

Dear blog,

It’s been a while, been ages actually but it was not without reason… Yea! Like I’m going to tell all of you…….lol

here is  the deal, I’ve been very busy and done a lot of soul-searching, all trough my away period, and have come to understand and believe more in the word “FRIEND” as I’ve seen firsthand what it really means to be friends.

some people shamelessly hide behind the banner of friendship to get cheap patronage or customer service *shame on you*, while some people think its an easier way to love and not get hurt *cowards* for some it’s the fastest way up the ladder of success in life *God dey o!*(colloquial way of saying there is God) and for some it’s just a convenient way to live.

In keeping with the Cyril tradition, I ask “What is friendship to you or what do you say friendship is?”

well for me I met the perfect friend or do I say I found the perfect friend a while back and her name is……… yes she’s her!!! *tongue out* like ill give you her name! but she knows herself as I know she is reading this and yes dear you are the reason I’m writing this *smiles*

she is that kind of person that loves you unconditionally and makes you fall in love with her every day and yet feels it’s weird that you two should date, yet she looks out for you in every way possible. she puts up a “don’t disturb sign” but she attends to you with a joyful heart, she is always excited when something good happens to you (me). even though I’m not always there for her, she is there no matter what… she would scold me when I’m wrong, what most people say they are scared of doing and you know the best part? she looks more beautiful just waking up in the morning.

questions answered I’m sure as to why I wish and pray to marry my best friend (of course she has to be she) *sorry guys*

after all said and done, this is my little way of saying thank you for always being there, even when I didn’t notice you were, even if I don’t say it all the time, know that you are so special to me.  *whispering* “you inspire me” don’t tell anyone…!

The relationship grew in no time months turned into  years yet love stood. Al involved. she Albeit, Fel had to resign due to a company policy that did not permit colleagues to be romantically involved.  her quest to get a new job was futile and this got her depressed and unconsciously met out tantrum’s on Cyril. she found it hard communicating her anxiety to Cyril in a way he would understand and brought about a lot of friction among the love birds.

Fast forward years after Cyril wrote the blog post for her, the relationship ended. Cyril moved on but-but said he would not want to loose her friendship and just wants her to be his true friend. Fel has had a rough time accepting the realisation that she is officially a friend to her Ex.

  1. I thought Fel was going to get her happy ending with Cyril 😦 cause Fel’ is me. But as sheer luck would have it, Cyril left her when she needed him, when she showed him her weaknesses, the sides of her he never knew, when her world was tumbling down, he left. They always leave 😦
