The love triangle between Saskay, Cross and Jaypaul was made public two weeks ago during the Sunday night live eviction show, where Ebuka revealed to everyone that Saskay had been secretly being enjoying a lot of attention from Jaypaul and Cross without their knowledge.
Since then, things between these three has been odd, to say the least. Prior to Ebuka coercing a response from Saskay as to where she ranks both men in her life, Cross clearly had a thing for Saskay. Following the event of that Sunday evening when Saskay told the world that she was simply enjoying the attention from both men, and wanted nothing romantic from them, Cross took the initiative to back away.
Judging from previous seasons, and how a much of a half-wit the public would categorise a hopeless romantic, Cross thought it wise not to bear his heart on his sleeves. And just like that, the possibility of a relationship between Cross and Saskay slowly plunged into fantasy.
They had a conversation that night and decided to be friends. However, recent conversations have shown that at the very least, they still think about each other, but to what degree is uncertain. Any close watcher can truly tell that the feelings between Cross and Saskay still lingers.
Last night, in Saskay’s conversation with Peace, she revealed her feeling of Cross not putting in enough effort to get her. How much effort she wants him to put in after that gut-wrenching Sunday is a mystery, but the fact that she spoke to Peace about him is enough proof that their unwillingness to open up to each other is the wedge preventing them from taking the next step.
Today, Cross revealed to Angel and Queen that he is romantically attracted to Angel, and not Saskay, which came as a surprise to both ladies. “For Saskay, I did romantically like her but we’re just friends ‘cause I don’t like messing with friendships. We’re just friends,” he said.
He however noted that he would like to know Saskay more, even though he believes the feeling isn’t mutual.
