I’m probably going to regret writing this, but for once, I agree with Adrian, Tolu’s head is stuck in a different world. She chooses to cheat on her husband with his brother-friend, she chooses to play wife with her husband all the while feigning for her next Adrian fix and she chooses ( despite Adrian’s obvious relationship with Cassy) to pander to Adrian’s beck and call.
Whilst I agree with Adrian’s assessment of Tolu, Adrian is still a douche. His obnoxiousness plays out in his accusatory tone “I don’t know Tolu, as I stand here in your house…in your bedroom, the one you share with your husband…I think you’ve played the role of a wife pretty well…I look at your Instagram and you look like a bloody good wife” causing me to believe that they have both gone senile. Granted Tolu is not wife of the year but Adrian does realise that it takes two to tango right? If Tolu’s hands are dirty, his are just as filthy.
Tolu is besotted with Adrian to the point of delusion. She has confused assertion for love when in reality Adrian just knows how to manipulate her for his own titillation. Again sexual intimacy is used here to cover up the cracks in the relationships, with Adrian leading the dance. However, Tolu’s last few words are quite important. She alludes to the way Adrian makes her feel and the chemistry unique to their relationship and I want to use this opportunity to segue very briefly into “chemistry”. As good as “chemistry” feels, like all sensations, it will die. It should therefore never form the basis of a long term relationship. Tolu, unbeknownst to her, has made the pursuit of chemistry her idol and cheapened the endearing love Jide has for her.
Will Jide break Adrian’s neck? Find out on the next episode of BUTiLOVEHim.
