A Girl Arsène Once Knew
Today on NLIR I am pleased to introduce a new guest blogger Dalitso Njolinjo (@chocoteddybear) Follow Chocolate Teddy Bear!. Dalitso is usually a film blogger but has decided to write for NLIR about his true love, Arsenal. Take it away Chocolate Teddy Bear…..
So, I have a friend (she’s more than a friend, she’s a lot like family) and she’s a stunner. Everybody thinks so. Awhile back she was the talk of the town, but then she got together with this Mediterranean looking bloke and to be fair, they were good together – but truth be told, she let herself go.
She used to be with this French-African bloke. I’ve always wondered what happened to him.
Anyway, she and her man were together for a good while. Always smiling and holding hands. I was happy because she was happy. Her family loved him, so did the rest of her close friends and almost 3 years ago things went sour.
It turned out that this fella was still in love with his old Mrs from his hometown. He always carried a torch for her. When my friend first caught a whiff of this old girlfriend poking around, she asked him if there was anything going on and he denied it. She believed him. I believed him. There was no reason to suspect otherwise.
But I was hearing rumours around town that just wouldn’t go away. Talk of him texting the ex-girlfriend. Not just talking – sexting. But, he always denied it. Who was I to meddle over some rumours?
Then, almost 18 months ago, my friend paid me a visit. Tears streaming down her face. She told me that she thought there was smoke in all of these rumours. She found some texts on his phone.
“I want your DNA”, one said. “I feel like I’ve been kidnapped”, another.
It was all very strange.
I told her to confront him – get things cleared up once and for all. No more lies.
Well she did and he confessed that he still loved his old-girlfriend and that he was flying back to give it another go.
My friend has always been a proud woman, so she didn’t let on how upset she was. She let it go. No fuss. But you could tell that she was heartbroken. I kept trying to convince her that she was better than him. She just nodded in agreement, but I wasn’t sure she agreed.
Today, my friend is finding her feet again. She’s almost back to her old self. Give it time and I’m sure she’ll be setting tongues wagging again. There’s this young fella that she’s always hanging around with – there might be something there.
But, irony of ironies, I’ve been hearing rumours that things have turned sour for her old man and his childhood sweetheart. She won’t admit it, but I have it from a good source that she has been texting him – telling him to come home. I personally don’t know what to make of it.
Like I said, she’s more like family than just a friend and I definitely don’t want to see her hurt again. What worries me is the Tipexing of history that other people around her are engaged in. No one is reminding her of the way she felt after they broke up with her. They are all reminding her of the good times.
They are making excuses for him when they should be protecting her. It just doesn’t sit well with me.
If they do end up getting back together, I’ll try and be happy for them. But I’m going to let him know that I’ve got a goon squad on standby if he even thinks about hurting her again.
Anyway. Thanks for listening.

Thanks Teddy. An amusing take on the situation and hopefully that flirtatious sleaze learns to be a one man woman ;-).
